The President has reiuoved Gov. Reeder.
His offence •wes simply obeying tlio" laws of
theland, , and desiring to pravent . their vio
lation. by others.. As the Misiouri - rriob who
call themselves the Kansas Legli s ixtur e
press it f telas proVpd `'ehnr,' 2 to their pro-
'slavery: legislation, and therefore they, des
' patched one of their number to Washington
to ask President- Pieria to remove him—and
he - promptly complied with their demand.
The intelligence of this new outrage, though
anticipated, will fall like a thunderbolt among
the .people . of. the North. Whatever may
`be the ; . reasons assigned for his removal, the
real onels his resistance of the unlawful acts
of the slave-drivers. This everybody feels,
and so perfectly. justifiable floes his conduct
with almost as much unanimity as theirparty
appear, that the Democratic papers of Penn
.pylvania haV . e ventured to endorse his - course
endorsed that of President Pierce; in the. State
Convention. And the people of Penn.s.ylva-
Hitt, of every patty; have felt a pride in the•
_exhibition ofmanly . courage - made - by him
:luring his brief career; and to see hit!' struck
. down and 'punished fordoing his duty, will
excite 'their deepeit . indignation,. ' This re- -
movat places two facts in 'n clear light, both
of which, however, were evident enough be
fore. It-shows that the Southern politicians
will stick at no means, fair or tout, to extend
and strengthen the institution of slaveri , • ,'till .
it fully and_forever : secures the control of
the General Government; and it shows. as
. plainly that the administration'f oirranklin
Pieree, - whom State Conventions at thenorth'
are one after another endorsing
,anew, is the
head of these pro-slavery outrages, aiding and
'abetting their commission.- Low as. the 'ad
ministration had before - sunk in the eyes - •of
, mankind, in the removal of GoVernor Reeder
• it has found a . lower - depth of infamy. -
R. B. .Gbase and. his New. pasty:—A Trap
• - -ta• tatch.Froalioilera.
Since 'the Harrisburg
despairs of making the Free Soilers believ'e
'that the:Democratic party is cpPosell to the
Nebraska.bill. His only hope now of sac;
• ing his darling, party from utter
.ruin is to
.keep it out - the field, entirely, and organize
:a new party, the •Main,ta:) . di of which is to
• consist of Nebraska Democrats,.. To effect
-this he is using a few pretended Free Soil
i-Detnocrats, who joined the.Republican.party
tor any TASOIV but principle, and who are
'now ready to sacrifice it for personal consid
...frationS • These he Proposes . ' to thrust !or
,-.Ward in, a new Free Soil ;rove, while ho and
Hithker Democrats lie back in the shade.
ktintilelection day when they are-to'_come out
and -4 elect • the. caudidaies. By this game
-t'hase . .hopes to bring the Democratic party
out of this Fall's campaign whole and in good
~condition to rally on a Democratic President,
- while the Republieim party will . be so crip,
i pled as to be ineffective: in. the Presidential
canvass. In this operation', Chase is the wire
:puller, and men who have "axes to-,grind".
..ose the tools. We Are st. 4.k0 true - rtepublienn,
no man whO isa,'Free Boiler - from principle,
wil l be caught in this trap:. The Republican par
,. ty of thistviunty is 13 ow in connection with siin
liar parties forming in every county cif the
.:.;.State, and sympathizes-with the Free Soil
• movement throughout the entire North.-7--
• The integrity and success of this party, is the
only hope of Freedom intheTerritories.
1. -- One of the coolest things we know of
:is the invitation the sham - Democracy have
• extended to the Whigs - , since the late Iferris
burg Convention, to come over and join
them. , One of their organs declares that "an
honorable Whig is as much superior to one
. of these Democratic Know-Nothing Abell
. tionists as an angel of light is above Satan
:laimself;" and they/generally profess ,to
lieve: hat the Whigs, except a- few who are
engaged in playing some fantastic tricks up
on the Democracy, are a pretty 'good set of
fellows, and invite - theni to turn in and help
the unterrified. Sure enough—why not ?
It must be confessed that these same pa
pers were ready enough to abuse-the Whigs,
when they did not want their help, but times'
have altered. By passingthe Nebraska bill,
the Democratic has killed the 'Whig, Party,.
and got 'Anil into trouble. The Northern
Whigs separatedfrom their Southern friends,
becau.se the latter were determined to go for
the Nebraska bill—what more reasonable
than that they should now unite with - the par
ty that originated and carved through that
bill, and still upholds it?
Those *ho last. Fall denounced Free-Soil
nemoerats as traitors for acting with Whigs,
now express their villini,mess to do the same
thing—only on a pro-Slavery platform.
'Born FAcs.!--The last Montrose Demo
crat has an article under the head of " The
..Fanaticism of Know-NothingAna," contain
intelligence that " the
board of overseers of Harvard Colleke have
refused theAsree of L. L. D. to Saduel A.
Elliot, because he voted for , the Fugitive
Slave lase," and that the men who did this
"'thing, the Ove*ers, except two or three, are
Know-Nothings! Oh, those awful pro-tlave
ry linow-No4tingsi Ob, that glorious Free-
Soil Democrat! . to
As is remarked in tg Democrat, this. is
aboitt as bad as their State Legislatures' rais
ing "personal liberty bills . ;" or , we may
add, as their State ConventiOne'paising reso
lutions ngainst Slavery e.xtenskar, contrary
to the example of the Democratic party.
Since our neighbor attended the •Harris
surgCon vention, be is becoming "National."
The anti-Slavery fanaticism of the Massachu
setts Know Nothings he "cannot away with ;
but a platform that endorses Pierce •& Ne:
breaks 4e . .thinks " not particularly objection
able." And so freedom loses a cluumpiOn.
