'between the friends of Douglas and the
friends of Breckenridge , so far as to pre
'vent any democrat expressing hisopposit -
ion to the pernicious doctrines of Black
Republicanism. It is in porfect harmony
with that arrangement for a democrat to
r-upport either Breckenridge or Douglas.
i The nlan anl ninnifest obiect was, to se
'cure the whole vote of tho Democratic
'party cf the State for the same set of eleelors.
!in order that tho State might be carried
'fiit Lincoln.and thus the worst calam-
lity that couUl letal the country, averted.

prevent the election ot Jancoin 'vas tne
nnmmount obiect of every Democrat. It
was, therefore emphatically a union or the
formation of a partnership, between the
two wings of the Democratic party the
friends of Breckenridgo and tho friends of
Douglas in ordor that cither the one or
the other of them might be elected, and
thus Lincoln be defeated.
Thij being the case, we respectfully sub
mit to the Democratic editors who acqui
esce in the Crtason arrangement, whether
they oro ndvocating the claims of the one
or the other, that they cease their bitter
ness. Under this arrangement there is
no call for Douglas men abusing Breckin
ridge or those who support him. Nor is
there any call for tho friends of Breckin
ridge or those who support liim to abuse
Douglas or his friends. There is quite an
abundanco to say in favor of both these
distinguished St atesmen, to fill all our
columns from now until tho election. If
not, then let us employ our time and la
bor in the exposition of the dangerous and
destructive doctrines of Black Republican
ism. This is a beautiful field, and much
good may bo the result. If either Doug
las or Breckenridge is elected, it will be a
full Democratic triumph. But if Lincoln
is dotcated it Till be at least half a vietorv

cently caught the samo fever, and desires
to get up a sensation, by innocently as
king in two successive issues of his paper,
whether "Foster has been found."
For the purpose of satisfying tho curi
ous, and allaying tho anxiety ofoui neigh
bor, wo would say, thai Gen. Foster, haB
never been ; nor is ho lost. He is a man
that never hides himself, nor does he
vauntingly ptrut like a gay Teacock before
the people of our State, saying; folio
citizens, this is I. Your next Governor.
We know he is unlike kis competitor,
with that native modesty accompanying
true greatness ; Henry D. Foster rests on
his past record, not on his present happy
spocches, on his principles : not on his
appearance ; on his tamo as n great con -
servntive Matesman, not on straddling
two platforms, and publishing his own
eminent qualification for office.
When the gallant Col., six feet four;
was sneaking around with a Bible in his
Ilat, secretly swearing men to proscribe
their follow citizons ;"ien. Foster was pub
licly advocating the rights of man, wheth
er native or foreign born.
When the heroic Col., was hunting
Catholics with s broad sword and a dark
lantern ; Gen. Foster was pleading with
the peoplo of Pennsylvania not, lo make
religion a qualification or lost for office.
When eloquent Andy wa3 abusing men
or. account of their birthplace and relig
ion, and talking of tho criminals and pan
pers, shipped upon us by Ireland and
Fmnco ; Gen. Foster .was manfully repii'
dialing this miserable slander, by pointing
to the many prominent names in Ameri
can history ; and calling on his country
men, to look around them at tho thrifty,
hardy, honest, emigrant ; and then forev
er banish tho heresy, thai "birth" had
higher claims on government than ''worth.
No Democrats f our gallant standard bear
er is not lost, nor in ho in danger; and
though the Opposition may not see him
through a "glass dimly," the timo is co
ming when they shall see him as ho is,
and slull like him.
His record is before tho people ; and so
is Andy's tho former as a hightoned
honorablo man a consistent and conser
vative Statesman, tho latter, as a weak
man willing ono year to despiso and abuse
men, for their birth and religion ; and the
next year to cajoloand embrace them for
their votes to make him Governor wile
ling to advocate any principle, or endure
any platform to further his personal van
ity and ambition willing lo betray his
former Vm fricnls ftml 8011 hirase,f to
the Ishniaelites ; because ho believes they
