Of all classes; of public men, those are the most
despicable, Who having been honored and distin

Occupy, AS ;11i#Selltient only to the gratification of
personal ambition- With such, no measure, how
ever affecting the interest, of the country for good,
has their sanction, until it is first ascertained wheth
er it meetstbe approbation of those who have pow

Our Country has suffered Immeasurably by Buell
men; they . ,ave contributed, more than all other
canes teleasen the bond of our Union, and dimin
ish.eonfitienc.e in Ilitt predic t ability of a Repeblican
form of gordiummt. Throughthem, the people are
reproached,' and. often made V hewers of wood,
and draw* of water.r In no instance, upon a
great question, has there been such a combination
of effort to cheat lied hoodwink the people of the
North, as op dim affecting the edensicm of. Slavery.
Scarcely an eleeltor of either party in the North,ean
be found,, Who ie not opposed to the 'further exten
sion of Slavery; and who, never by their votes,
will countenance a Measure so repugnant to hu
manity. It is useleits iredeny this. No"man in the
North, dare go before the people ; and plead the
cause of propagating, slavery; the indignation
would be , overwhelming. Notwithstaediag this,
we aroold that the people are opposed to the agi
tation of file subject ; nag that they are,willing the
South should extend human slavery over Free Soil.
Jt is a •libel—a",gross and infamous libel upon the
• We are aware that the action of the people on
this subject, has been limited; but why is it so ?
The reason is found in the truth of what we have
said of certain public men, who calculate on the
promises of the futif?e to themselves alone. The
task is allotted them, of being speciaj pleader's, in
attempting to draw the people obi'on some other
issue than the true clue. For this purpose they
raise great constitutional question ; the question on
lite rights of the South ; the Compromises of the
Constitution; the Missouri Compromise; the ha
practicability of the, Proviso ; an the incorporation
of newldoctinea in the Democratic' creed. Such
are theilssides, dra g ged in for no other possiblemo
tire than to mislead and deceive the People r on
the real merits - of a measure, of vital consequence
to tem. Thus are the people prevented from act
ing, and are made, nnlens volens, to sustain
sures, a true apprehension .of which, would - be
abominable to then:.
What the Constitution to do with the ques
tion of extending - slavery into newly acquired and
free territory ! No man, claiming to knoW the
Constitution can be sincere,, who interposes it as an
objecttion ; he can have no other object than to mis
lead and prevent the ffee action of the people. The
ronfineenf davery were fixed on the adoption of
the. Constitution : it was with great difficulty that
most;ofthe framers of it consented to tolerate sla.
very iwithin the original thirteen States. Its exten
sion yeas never contemplated. The hlissouriCorn
pternise—was the effect of resistance to the en
croahments of slavery. It drove slavery back
front territory where it was allowed. If it was i con
milli 'one! to do this, is it not as much so to say it
shat not be extended to territory where it does not
filial If it was constitutional to declare, as by the
Ordinance of 'B7, that "neither slavery nor invol
untary servitude should exist in the North Western
Tenitory," is it not equally so, to declare that it
shallnot pxist in any territory similarly situated I
Why is it, that since the period of the Continental
Cengress, the right to legislate -concerning Slavery
in the Territories, has been recognized, and yet
now, by some political /sows pocus, it is discovered
. that to approve the extension of Slavery, is uncon
stitutional and impracticable ! If so, there has been
much tmconstitstional and impracticable legislation
on this subject. The present question, however,
differs matt.rially from any other that has arisen
concerning Slavery. They sought the restriction
of slavery, where A was allowed; this is not to re
strict, but to prevent its extension to territory where
it does not exist, and ii not allowed. , We wish our
readers to note, and \ lemember this difference.—
We repeat, then,if it was constitutional and practica
ble to legislate for-the restriction of Slivery,, where
by law it might and did ,exist, is it not equally so,
to legislate against its extension to territory where it
woes net exist?
It is depkrttle, that a question of this mag,ni
vile,.so deeply and inseparably connected with the
Oterests of Free Labor, should be strangled, by
those, entnisted by the people, whom they are
misleedhig. Will not the' people call them to au
' Sam; or instruct them as to their duty I. Most cf
'the frew'states, through their Legislatures„ and
.Congress, took a (inn and decided
stand'against the further extension of Slavery. • In
a short time, hcivrfiver,we find many of these Con
gressmen okinging ground ; and that too, without

And yet, we are asked to acquire free territory by
the treasure ! and lives of freemen ; to extend to it
human slexpry, that thereby the old Slave States

and such will be its practical 'results, vales, the

business of sheer piracy. Of all occupations the
most contemptible, is that of a political journal ? of
such easy conscience as to mould principles in a

The'reiolutions are right; with one exception.—
We respond to them most heartily—we- 4tepe :the
Democracy of the Union will never depart from

Toga, to declare its principles through a`man, who
as the editor of a professed Democratic Journal,
was the first to desert and betray our cause ; who
constantly and zealously advocated the right of Con
gress to legislate for capital ; to pass laws highly
protective to certain classes, and , which were a
bold infringement on the sovereignty of the States?

Mr. Fairfield has been suffering for a long time
from a diseased leg. A year ago he had a surgi

continued to increase till about

he had received on account of the institution, over

The time which elapsed between his getting into
