The bane of our polities, is contained in the am•

It is thin. which ilebancliet and demoralizes it, and
perverts it from its proper and leuitainate purposes,
to 6elli-h aml sinker ends. The high Ind elcva

which reigned, held up anew the olive branch.and
gave us his assurance that this quiet should suffer
no shock during his administration.

The sky of our psiLical nor ziat was anclouiled,and

The question as far as regarded rim acquisitions
from Mexico, had been sealed tiy the legislation
of 1850. The Missouri Compromise and the Or.
klinance of 1787, covered the remainder of our Ter
ritory. 1 nese three solemn covenants, it legisla

the hope that was in us.
Short-sighied and credulous that we were ! At

had reached the most remote shores of our extend
ed Republic--.lbere comes a "shock" destined to
seriously disturb the equilibrium of the Democratic
party, and whose consequences upon our country
may well be viewed with apprehension. This set.
tied question is re-opened in a manner calculated
most effectually to engender sectional animosities
and jealousies, to arouse the elements of discoid,
and to precipitate the country into a heated and

gist the South despise. treachery and repudiate the

which prevails in the breasts of Southern man has
no sympathy with Northern tipaghlaces, sad the
more stultified and 'tlebasjtViroet; bicome, the more
they receive, as tney..puttly, merit, theic z eontempt.
We can ['gime Senator Doom.ss that the South ne
ves has, ant we believe never will support any
mail fur the Presidency, ari L lhe reward of subset
vwncy. They may accept any measure which
tends to strengthen the influence,of the slave inter.
eat, if tittered by Northern men, but they have for
the donor, leelinge of contempt for the traitor who
p.oves recreant to the cause of Freedom.
We hazard the pr.ldictien that any Noithem man
who aid and abets in this infamous proceeding,
urn never become the President of the United Antes.—
These is integrity and spir►t.enough Jell in the pen
pie to prevent that. In the first place, the South
will never allow such to become.a candidate—and
if presented, the indignant rebuke 01 a free people,
despite the trammels of party, or the influence of
patronage, would be spoken in toriespot to be mis
understood at the ballot-box.
We heat the plea put forth, that the question. of
repealing the flifissouri Compromise, is an Admin.
Istration measure, and supported and encouraged
by the President. We should regret exceedingly
to be petiole that such is the fact. We have placed
our highest hopes upon a brilliant administration for
Gen Pit-rice. We have supported its general poli•
cy, a. being in our judgment calculated to advance
the highest interests of the country and conduce to
the harmony and prosperity of the Democratic par
ty. We have given our support, from these con
viction& But the collar sits light:y upon our neck,
and . we are not ready to obey the behests of the
tr powers that be," when it is asked of us to do r io
fence to our sense of right, to act courier Irs out
convictions, to repudiate our former opinions, and
to enlist on the ride of slavery extension. In this
respect, rank us not as friends of the Administra
tion. If a cordial and earnest support of the efforts
of the Administration to introduce economy and
system into the Departments—if an adherence to
old-fashioned. but progiessive Democracy—are not
sufficient to entitle us to the designation of being
friendly to the National Administration, we regret
it, but will not complain.
We say we should regret to be assured that the
violation of the Missouri Compromise was an Ad
ministration measure, because we look upon all
attempts to identify the Democratic party with sla
very propagandism, as certain to resulein disaster
and defeat. The great mass of that party utterly
loathe, abhor and detest slavery. The party or
ganization may be controlled and used to the bene
fit of slavery, but when the people are called upon
to ratify that action; they will certainly stamp it
with the mark of their disapprobation. No man, or
set of men, nor the power and influence of a Na
tional Administration can manacle the hands and
control the voice of a Free - Democracy. The pat.
rona.ge of the Administration may muzzle the press,
may silence public men, may even coerce and se
duce members of Congress enough to fasten this
iniquity upon the country, but it cannot avert the
odium which would attach to its memory forever,
nor prevent the people from the expression which
the ballot-box allows them. -
The Governor, on his re'urn from Erie, has sen t
into the Legi.leture, quite a lengthy and able mes
sage, in which he reviews the whole Guage diffi
culty. The Franklin Canal and Railway properly,
is now in the possession of the State, and its opera
tions udder the direction clan officer of tier own
selection. The Governor very forcibly remarks
that the Commonerealth has had no controversy
with the citizens or corporations of other States, nor
has she been inclined to interfere with their rights
or in'erests; or to unnecessarily interrupt the travel
or commerce of Thesountry. She has been dealing
with a refractory creature of her own, which had
most palpably "misused and abused" the privil
e;es conferred upon it by law; a corporation that
had attempted the usurpation of power, that hail in
fringed the sovereignly oldie State, and invaded
her rights of eminent domain. If in this contest
she was brought into collision with citizen and cot
poiatione of other Slates, the difficulty was not of
her own seeking. The vindication of her honor
and dignity was a duty which she could nut ne
glect ; and he has no hesitation in saying, without
any reference to the difficulties at Erie, that it was
right and poli'io on the par! of the State to exercise
the pciWer which she had reserved over this curpor
The company were admonished at every step,
that they were transcending their legitimate pro
vince; but the only effect seemed to be to stimu
late them to greater indignity to the State, and in
creased latality in the consumation of their own de
In felerring to the bitter denunciation which hail
been meted out to him and the citizens of Erie, by
parties out of the State, for altegir,g that there should
be a break of gunge at Erie, he remarks : A de•
mand for an unneeesascy break of Railroad gunge,
and the consequent transhipment of tonnage and
passengers, it will conceded, would be an illiberal
exaction, and an improper interruption of the com
mercer of the country. Bat such is not the position
of the question at Erie. The necessity for a break
of page between the West and the Atlantic ei.
ties, results from the policy of New York and Ohio,
and not from that of our own State. The railroads
of Ohio are unitormly four feet len inches wide, end
those of New York, forir feet eight and a half inch,

and the only question is es to the proper ltoint.—

A Noble Letter.

war addressed to the Committee ol Arrangements
for the Meeting held at Fanecil Hall, Roston, on the
16th inst., to protest against the violation of Nation..
al obligations entered into at the passage of. the
Missouri Compromise.. The letter does honor to
the head and heart of the wiiter, who is known.
throughout the country as one of the most able and
reliable friends of Freedom, whose integrity no.
patronage bps been able to seduce, and whose
courage has defied all denunciations. It would be
well for country, if more of our public men were
like Pacs - ron Kinn. Faithful among the faithless,
he has never for a moment swerved from the path
of honor and consistency, and now towers far above
the reach of his enemies, commanding the respect
of every honest man. His letter will meet with a
hearty response from the Democracy of this sec.
