nr The election for State Senator' in
place of Major White, resulted in the elec
tion of tho abolition candidate, by a very
much reduced majority. The Senate will
probably organize this 'Week. For this
delay of two months the abolition party
are solely - responsible, as by their own
confession, they kept the alleged resigna-
tion of the Senator in their hands,-and so
prevented an election from being held, as
it should hare been, last FalL It is a fact

Republicanism and Xiseagenation.
Those who will do so, are gradually en
abled to see where - a faithful e:ippon of
the Lincoln Proclamations, &c., leads to.
A pamphlet has been recently issued by
some zealous friends of Old Abeorho are
anxious to show their "lawyer' brothers
and sisters how best to promote their par
ty interests and felicity. The tide of the
work is ".Miscegenation," -and is eagerly
read among the faithful. We quote a few
passages from the nasty thing :
"When the President proclaimed
"emancipation he prodaimed.aleo the min
"Ong of the racer. The one follows the
" other as surely as noonday follows sun-
"And now behold I the great Repnbli
" can party has merged into the little Ab

" the Abolition, which is in effect the pr

" that contemptible crowd - who fear the
" South and have uo policy for the North
" but expediency. Why did abolitionism
" swallow Republicanism I &masa it
" was founded on principles that approach
" nearer the truth.
the above are enough for the present,
—enough to disgust all worthy to belong
to the white race, with the last plank in
the platform. : No, doubt many of the re
publican rank file will hesitate about
swallowing po dose; Imt.es the organ of
