The Repuhlican• County Committee of Susquehan
na County will meet at Montrose on Friday, the 2ith
day ofJoly inst., for the transaction of ,bustness pre
paratm7 for the Fall election. The following persons
constitute- the CoMmittee : Charles F. Read, Peter
Decker, Gilbert Warner, U. L. Canfield, Amos Wiil
iams, William Foster, William C. Tiffany,, G. Z. Dim
oek. A full attendace is reqestpl.
,Position and, Prospects of Pa4lo, North
sad South.
At the. South, there seem to be but two
parties - in existence, the Democracy and the
Knoir-NothingsOioth of which profess pre
cisely the same principles on the Sliyery
question. Each
_party claims to he, more
vTeSlaver,.y than_ its antagonist, but them can
be-no doubt both are 'sound' in that respect.
In Georgia, for exaMple, the Democracy
faro lately tulnpted,a platforni in which they
Acelare that a-refueal to admit Kansas imp
the Unio as a Slave State, will be consider
ed by rgiti a sufficient ground for dissolv
ing, the Union. Tho Know-Nothing State
'Council of Georgia has since met, and unwill
ing to let the Democracy get the start of
them, has adopted, so far as Slavery is con
cerned, precisely the same platform: The
• sum e platform has also been adopted by the
Democracy of other Southern States ; and
intleed it seems to be the doctrine of that:
Tarty": every where, tbat the' Missouri Com
promise lino must not be restored, and-that
if the sovereigns' of Kansas orNebraska dc
aide in favor of Slavery, they must be admit
ted • Nvith slavery. We believe at. not a
single- Democratic paper - or poi' iciati, that
claims, to adhere to the party, tier at the
North or South, has come out in fiver of re
stoeing the Prohibition of Slavery in those
Territories. And in this the National oe-pro-
Slavery..Know-Nothings and the sham 'De.
mocracy stand on the same ground; for the
pro-Slavery platform of the Philadelphia Con
vention, also declared, against restoring the
, • 4::ornpiomise line and in favor of adinitting
ne*-States.with Slavery whenevei• they as . k.
it. In lo6al, or State elections, these , two
proSlaiery parties may, for the present, 'op
pose• each other, but - in aPreSidential con
- test, in the present state of onr national. af
fairs and of public sentiment, no" reasonable
man can' doubt that They will. .unite ; rather
than see the Oppositi, principles triumPh and
-Kansas and Nebraska restored to freedom
In fact, many of the4Southern papers,'of both
c parties,are already clamoring for such unioo.
Assuming that these prO-Slavery parties,
laying aside minor differences, will act to.
-getter to elect a pro-Slavery - Presient, we
have• to consider what Will be their united
,strength, and \ who will be found to -oppose
In the first place, the chief strength of both
•) the South. That this is:the case with
- ther-Vrerroveretic peerty,ther_electiorea. Wm:o
Nebraska ouirage ssuffi*ntly \demonstrate.
e party has 'been 'defeated every where. nt
the North. - -Its former streii i ith and thorough
- .Organization have enabled it to retain a por
tion of its former adherents,. even ,hgainst
their own convictions of rigfilTbut it \has ai 7 ,
ready - dwindled . away to a feeble and distract
ed remnant at the North, and will still fur
ther diminish when the attempt
,is made . to
bring the party anew upon a National pro-
Slavery platform. There is no, reason to
;implies° that it can carry a single Northern
13tate., 'with the - Free•Soil sentiment, united.
against it. The National. Know-Nothings are
`it _even a worse condition. Their proSlave
,l7 platform was at once repudiated by the .
Amerjean party of every Free State, except
New York, and we are,asiured by many of
the organs, f the Order in that State that her
delegates yere false to the sentiment of their
constituents, and that her next,State Council
Will also repudiate the pro-Slavery vlatform.
The -pro-SlaVery Know-Nothing3, therefore,
cannot be expected to make a show of carrying
any Northern State ; and they can Ecaroely
hope-to oust - the `Democracy from - their pres
ent bi:ghplace in the affections of the Slave
oligarchy._ Linder whichever name they
choogit to act, tho South will go into. the next
Presidential .campaign united- 7 - that..., is, the
Tete of every State will be east for the sante
pro-Slavery candidate.; but as the North has
a:maiority of votes over the South, it is Only
necessary for us to beequallyunited to elect
a Froc-Soil Preitident. But on ,what _corn-
mon,basis shall we unite ? This question is
answered by the - New York Tribune of Ju2
, ly tlOth, in explaining to the Commercial Ad
vertiser, which advocates an attempt to re
*ire the Whig organization, as follows:
44 The National Republican party aims sirup
ly and solely at the restoration of the Pro
hibition of Slavery in thellew Territeries i —
This is whit the ComMercial will fird
pressed in the call for the Republican State
Convention, and more than this it need not
seek for. No doubt it will find arrayed in
theilepublicanmovement many men whose
views on The Slavery question go further
than that, just as it will find men who differ
on a variety of other questions, all brought
together 15V the- great necessity of the coun
try to act in one compact body for a com
mon end. In these ranks there are Demo
crate, Whigs, Free Loiters, Liberty men, Ab
olitionists, perhaps. Enough that they are
united under the Republican banner, and . that
they form, a part of that, great movement
which has curried fifteen States, and reversed
the cleuiwtte Of their entire delectation
House of Representatives."
And-- we may Did that the lay yof
Northern men who were repres - in the
late Know-Nothing National Convention at
Philadelphia, stand pledged, in every Free
State oacept New York, to =the support of
'die same principles, and 'that, unless the
counsels of those vcho would foioduce fatal
dissenaksis among Free-Soil n wen, prevail,
'they will be found supporting the Rer.ublican
eandidate for President in 1856, as they now
are supporting Senator Chase for Governor
of Ohio.. , .
