"against Mr, Wilmot, Mr. Lowrey took an active
part-,-attended meetings held to advance the came
of Brewsterism, paid followed in the wake of Baird

Upon what did that election turn 7 What were
the great principles that formed the rallying pints
'of the two •rieetious? -Upon the Witecrr banner
was inscribed; " No extension of Slavery over the
Free Territory of tips United Statesia—epa n the
flatware& banner in glaring colors stood out-a
"The South has a right to transport her slaves to
an equal shareof the terrine) , acquired of Mexico"
Upon tire mottoes inscribed upon these two b in.
tiers was the issue joined And could there hearty
doubt of the result! In Tiog connty, the remderte
of Judge Brewster, Wilmot received one thousand
seven hundred and fourteen votes. and Brewster rat
hundred and forty. In Bra fiord, the residence of
Wihnot, Brearkter received two hundred and Aeon
voles and Wilmot fair thousand one hiindroi and
seventy one In Suagriehanna, the former residence
of Judge Brewster. Wilmot received two demand
awl k a y a k e d an d ei g ht votes. and Brewsteritey.
seven. bi those three countiee, Tracy, the nhe
candidate, received four thousand Seven hundred
and ninety-five votes; making Wilinor's maprity
over Tracy three thousand scum hundred and may
eight—over Brewster seven thon.and six horn! ed
arid eighty-one, and over die combined rite of
Tracy and Brewster of two thousand eight hundred
and eighty six. And let it be remembered too, that
against neither Mr. Tracy our Judge Breve er one
word could are urger! either in point of morals or
talent. It wits-an election based purely upon prin.
mirth, and so' ar as Judge Brewster u an. concerned,
that principle was the non extension at alavery
Wilmot opposed to all and even- exteiteion—Biew•
leer wilting to concede to the Sooth certain alleged
'constitutional rights to carry slaves Into a earl' in
the free territbry, and areal events granting them
the privilege of carrying them tnerea channtig fire
territory' into-Slave territory—if by apy mean. they
cnul,t get a majority of the white elite:els of said
territory to eenction it.
in that conteet Wilmot and non-extension Kra
most triumphantly vindicated, and one would think
that opposition to the principle that ' Human Bon.
daze ought not to be extended," had received exit
a check that it would newer dare azain make la
appearance.' But the enemy Of human eielatay re
never ceasing and never tiring in his efloos, and
hence o the price of human treedona is eternal vat.
Mr. Wilmot had been three limes elected and at
each time by an increased vote; When he was
the most bitterly assailed, then was he the most
signally triumphant. Could notihe antenna: of
universal freedom—enemies to that celebrated de•
clatation that " all men are created equal. - and
-have a inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the
pursuit bf happipess,"• be content with these signal
manifestations of the feelings ana principles of the
People of the 12th Congressional District? No*
The sign of distress was hong out—aid was sotto•

and editor were sent op from the southern remora
into Mr. Wilmot 's own County, for the express pur
