["V&E STAND UPON THE IMMUTABLE PRINCIPLES OFJUSTICE—NO EARTHLY POWER SHALLDRIVEUS FROM OUR POSITION
BELLEFONTE, PA., THURSDAY MORNING, NOV., 1, 1860.
Mr. Idncoln on Slavery—Mr. Sverctt.
Oar enemies are constantly harping upon
the sectionalism of Cur party and candidates.
That is all they can 6ay against us. and yet
that is a falsehood. Mr. Lincoln is not a
sectionalist nor docs ho stand upon a sec
To prove Lincoln's position, wo have only
to refer to his platform, his record, and his
speeches. Ills record is not extensive, yet it
is everything that his friends could' desire.
During his brief term in Congress Lincoln
voted for every principle which we now ad
vocate, and we are not only willing bat de
sirous that his record should be critically ex
amined. It is upon the slavery question that
most objoction is urged against our party
'yet upon that point there is no public man
more national or conservative than Lincoln.
A bill was brought into the House on the 28th
of July, 1848, to establish territorial govern
men.s for Oregon, California and NewMexi-
Co. This bill contained a proviso prohibit
ing California and New Mexico from passing
any laws for or against slavery. Lincoln vo
ted to lay this bill upon the table.
On the 21st of December a resolution was
offered, instiueling the proper Committee to
report a bill prohibiting the slave trade in
tbo District of Columbia. Lincoln voted
against the resolution, desiring to accompa
ny such a bill with necessary and equitable
provisons. This question again came up in
the shape of another resolution, when Lin
coln offered a bill as an amendment. It was
the most wise and just measure for the grad
ua! abolition of slavery in the District of Co.
lumbia that was ever proposed in Congress.
It provided that no more slaves should be
brought into the District, and that those who
choose to emancipate iheir slaves should be
paid their full value out of the United States
Treasury. It also provided that the bill
should be voted upoD by the freemen of the
District, and that it should Dot become a law
unless a majority cf the inhabitants were in
favor of it.
This is tho bill upoD which our foes base
this charge of Lincoln's Abolitionism. There
is certainly no intelligent person on the face
of the earth who would object to the provis
ions of that bill. Lincoln desired to leave
tbe vexed question to the inhabitants of the
District, and if they were in favor of it to
provide for insuring the slave owners against
loss. In his debates with Judge Douglas,
Lincoln, in answer to one of the questions
propounded by the Judge, said that as a
member of Congress, with his present views,
he should not be in favor of endeavoring to
abolish slavery in the District of Columbia.
Lincoln's answers to these questions pro
pounded by Judge Douglas at Freeport, fur
nish a complete statement of his position on
every question connected with slavery. lie
declares that he would not oppose the ad
mission of new slave States, if the people de*
sired slavery, lie is in favor of keeping sla
very out of the Territories, but considora that
when a State is ready for admission into the
Union, the people have a right to adopt such
institutions as they see proper, if they do
not conflict with the Constitution of the Uni
ted State. He declared that he was not,
and never bad been in favor of the uncondi
tional repeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, and
that the people of the Southern States were
entitled to such a law under the Constitu
Those who talk about Lincoln's irrepres
sible conflict sentiments, intentionally falsi
fy his position. He is not the man tc con
tradict bis own statements, and never utter
ed a word not in harmony with the declara
tion referred to above. Those statements
comprise his whole position on the slavery
question, and it is as conservative as any one
could desire. lie is accused of favoring ne
gro equality, and although it is hardly worth
while to notiee a calumny so manif* tly ab
surd. the following extract from one of his
speeches, is conclusive and to the point:
" I am not, nor evei have been, in favor of
bringing about, in any way, the eocial and
political pquality of the white and black ra
ces. lam not, nor ever have been, in favor
of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of
qualifying them to hold office, nor to inter
marry with white people ; and I will say in
addition to this, that there is a physical dif
ference between the black and white races
which I believe will forever forbid the two
races living together on terms of social and
political equality. And inasmuch as they
cannot so live, while they do remain together
there must bo the position of superior and
iufcrior : and I, as much as any other man,
am in iavor of having the superior position
assigned to the white race,"
It will be seen that Lincoln is not even in
favor of allowing negroes to vote, differing
in this position from some of his supporters
in the Northern States.
As the Hell and Everett journals And
speakers are among the most busy in charg
ing Abolitionism upoD us, it may be worth
while to refer to the record of one of thoir
own candidates upon this subject. Everett
has never been considered by the South as
sound upon the slavery question. He once
undertook to defend slavery upon principles,
but received such a scathing rebuke for it
from Seuthern men, John Randolph among
the number, that he soon cbanged his tune.
After General Harrison's accession to the
Presidency, he nominated Everett as Minis*
ter to England. Tbo Southern Democratic
Senators voted again&t canfirming this nomi*
nation, on the ground of Everett's extreme
' anti-slaverv sentiments. AmoDg those vot-
ing for the confirmation was Senatar Berrien,
of Georgia. .Tha Georgia Legislature passed
tha following voto of censure on Berrien for
this act :
Resolved , That the opinions publicly pro
claimed by Edward Everett, now Minister to
England, of the power and obligation of
Congress to abolish slavery in tho District of
Columbia, to interdict the slave trade be
tween the States, and to refuse the admis
sion into the Union of any Tenitory tolerat
ing slavery, are unconstitutional in their
character, subversive of their rights of the
South,and if carried out will destroy this Un
ion ; and that- the Hon. John MePherson
Berrien, in sustaining for an important ap
pointment an individual holding such übnox
ious sentiments, has omittfed a proper occa
sion to give an efficient check to such senti
ments, aud in so doing has not truly repre
sented the opinions or wishes of the people
of Georgia, of either political party."
The sentiments here ascribed to Everett,
are far more ultra than anft ever held by Mr.
Lincoln. Yet Everett is oio of the Presid.n
tial nominees of the party which declares
that Mr. Lincoln's clectjon will endanger
the safety of the Uuion,— paibj News.

Isn't it Worse for a Han, Father ?
It is two years since I left of the use of to
bacco. I only chewed a little, but I did en
joy my cigar. I prided myself op my fine
liavauas, and might have been seen almost
any morning with a cigar in my mouth,
walking down Broadway in a most comfort,
The way it happened that I loft off wai
this : I had a little son about six years of
age. Ho almost always harried to be ready
to walk down with me as far as his school.
lli-8 bright face and extended hand were al
ways welcome, and ho bounded along be
side me chattering, as such dear little fel
lows only can. Tho city had in it many
dirty, uncared-for boys, whose chief delight
seems to be to pick up pieces of discarded ci
gars and broken pipes, and with their hands
in their pockets puff away in a very inele
gant manner. One morning it seemed as if
little EJgor and I met a great many of those
juvenile smokers. I boceme very much dis
gusted, and pointed them out to little Edger
as an awful warning to youthful delinquency,
talked quite largely, and said the city au
thorities ought to interfere and brake it up.
A little voice, soft and musical, came up
to me as I gave an extra puff from iny su
perb Havana. A bright little face was up
turned, and the words, "Isn't it worse for a
man, father?" came to my ears, I looked
down on the little fellow at my side, when
his timid eye fell, and the color mounted his
cheek, as if he feared he had said something
bold and unfitting. "Do you think it is
worse for a man, EJger ?" I asked.
" Please, father, boys would not want to
smoke and chew tobacco if men did not do
Ilere was the answer. I threw away my
cigar, and havo never touched tobacco since
in any form.
A Difficult Question Answered
Can anybody tell why, when Eve was
manufactured from one of Adam's ribs, a
hired girl was't made at the same time to
wait on her?— Exclianye,
Xl e can, easily. Because Adam never came
whining to Evo with a ragged stocking to be
darned, or a collar string to be sowed on, or
a glove to bo mended " right avtay, quick
now !" Because be never read the newspa
per until the sun got down behind the palm
trees, and then stretched himself, yawning
out, "ain't supper most ready, my dear?"
I*iot he. lie made the fire, and hung over
the lea kettle himself, we'll venture, and
pulled the radishes, and peeled the bananas,
and be did everything else that he ought to !
lie milked the cows, and fed the chickens,
and looked after the pigs himself. lie never
brought home a half-a-dozen friends to din
ner, when Eve hadn't any fresh pomegran
ates, and the mango season was over! lie
never stayed out until 11 o'clock to a "ward
meeting," hurrahing for the out-and-out can
didate, and then scolding because poor Eve
was sitting up and crying, inside the gates.
To be sure be acted rather cowardly about
appie gathering time, but then that don't de
preciate Lis gen oral hopefulness about the
garden! lit never played billiards, ncr
drove fast horses, nor choked Eve with cigar
smoke, lie cover loafed around corner gro
ceries while roiitary Eve was rocking little
Cain's cradle at home. In short, he did not
think she was ipceially created lor the pur
pose of waiting upon him and wasn't under
the impression that it disgraced a man to
lighten bis wife's cares a little.
That's the reason that Eve lid not need a
hired girl, and wo wish it was the reason
that none of her deeenuacts did.
The Prince Iffeets a Waterloo Veteran at
The Albany Journal says: Just before i
Lard Renfrew left this morning, a very inter
esting interview took place at Congress Hall.
Philip Mills, an old veteran of Waterloo, one
of the Guards to whom Wellington said, on
that eventful day, " Up, Guatds, and at
them," was presented to Lord Renfrew and
his suite. He showed the Prince his Water
loo medal, his certificate of honorablo ais- i
charge from the army, for " extremely good
conduct," and his certificate of ten years' ser
vice in the police, in London. lie also hand
ed the Prince two letters, one from the Coin
onel of the Grenadier Guards, aDd one from
the superintendent cf the London police, ad
dressed to the Governor-General of Canada.
They were given to Mills in 1835, and their
seals have remained unbroken till they were
broken this morning by the Prince. They
were found to contain the strongest possible
commendation of Mills. The Prince and his
suito manifested great interest in the veter
an. Viscount Ilinchenbroko and Mr. Elliot
are themselves officers in the Guards at pres
ent, the former being in the same battalion
in which Mills formerly served. General.
Bruce took Mills' address, and we trust and
believe-the veteran will have cause to re
member the visit of the Prince with life
A fellow was doubting whether or no
he should volunteer to fight the Mexicans.

"but why put it victory or death ? Just put

It chanced to be on Monday morning, a
day which many New England readers need
not be told is better known as washing day.
Unconscious of the honor that was inten
ded her, the lady was standing behind a tub
in the back kitchon, with her arms immers
ed in the suds, busily engaged in an occupa
tion which, to say the least of it, is more use
ful than romantic.
There was a loud knock at tho door,
"Jane, go to the door, and if it is anybody
to see me, toll them I am engaged, and can
not see them."
The nm-sage was faithfully rehearsed.
"Tell your mistress that it is very impor
tant that I should see her."
"Teli him to call this afternoon," said the
lady, ''and I will see hiui."
But it was unavailing.
"I must see her now," 6aid tho minister,
"tell me where she is."
So saying, he followed the servant into the
kitchen, to the great surprise of her mis
"Miss , I have come to the conclu
sion to marry ; will you have me ?" was tho
minister's opening speech.
"Have you !" replied the astonished lady.
"This is a singular time to offer yourself.—
Such an important step should be mado a
matter of prayer and deliberation."
"Let us pray," was Mr. B's only response
as he knelt down beside the tub and prayed
that a union might be formed which would
enhance the happiness of both parties. His
prayer was auswered. and fiom this union,
thus singularly formed, has sprung a iamily
remarkable for talent and piety.
Rev. Rowland Hill and the Captain.
Once when I was returning from Ireland,
(says Rowland Hill,} I fotjud myself annoy*
ed by tbo reprobate conduct of the captain
and mate, who were both sadly given to the
scandalous habit of swearing. First, the
captain swore at the mate; then the mate
swore at the captain ; then they swore at the
wind; when I called to them with a strong
voice for fair play. 'Stop ! stop 1' said I, 'if
you please, gentlemen, let us have fair play,
it's my turn now.' 'At what is it your turn,
prny,' said the captain. 'At swearing,' I re
plied. Well! they waited and waited, until
their patience was exhausted, and then wan
ted me to make baste and take my turn. I
told them, however, that I had a right to
take my own time, and swear at my conve
nience To this the captain replied, with a
laugh, 'Perhaps you don't mean to take your
turn?' 'Pardon me, captain,' I answered,
'but I do, as soon as I can find the good of
doing so.' My friends, I did not bear anoth
er oath on the voyage.

Eg? 3 A lawyer built himself an office in
the form of an hexagon, or six square. The
novelty cf the structure attracf#d the atten
tion of some Irishmen who were passing by;
they made a full stop and viewed critically.
The lawyer somewhat disgusted at their our
iosity, lifted up the window, put out his head
and thus addressed them :
"What do you 6tand there gazing at my
office for, do you take it for a church 1"
"Faix," answered one of them, "I thought
so, till I spied the divil a pokin' his head out

Probably no man in Europe occupies
larger share of the attention of the world gt
this time than the hero of Italy—the lion
hearted Garibaldi. Everything, therefore,
relating to him or his movements, must be of
interest to tho reader, and the following per
sonal sketches, ttie bsst and most graphic we
have yet seen, we take pleasure in transfer
ring to our columns. The first is by a corre
spondent of tho Paris l'resae, and the second
from an English lady in Naples:
I have beard Garibaldi speak, I have seen
him near; he is admirable. Ilia nature is
that of the lion. Ilis voice is resolute, his
bauds large, and his body short and thick;

apostle. lie walks onward in faitb ( witbpqf
fear or hesitation, and works miracles. He
is a man to quit his boat in the storm'ju}4
walk upon the waters. He believes in his
mission as others believe ia their 6tar.
The other day, during a disturbance in tho
Carmine, when some soldiers fired a fbw
musket shots, and oven some cannon shots
upon the people, he never stirred. He offer

saying. "Smoko while you wait for them."

he sees it anywhere he is wont to say, Ci va,

can stop h'.m. One of the most striking trails
of his character is his singular simplicity.
He is the only great man I know who neves
acts a part. His speeches ( like those of all
men of strong convictions ) are somewhat
grandiloquent, but in private bis manner is
the most familiar and oordial that can be
conceived. lie listens to all comers with the
patience of a martyr, not keeping them at q

trait out of a thousand. At Messina one of
his old companions in arms knelt down be

is the man exalted and sanctified, as it were,
by his cw'n single-minded devotion to and
faith in a holy cause; and it is that which

asked our marine officers who have seen him
to describe him to me. They get on swims

head, and heard; and then they desire with
all their might to describe his expression-r

describe it to you. I can only say that it
explains that devotion to the death, and,
what is more, that faith in doing what the
