Position of the Republican Party
The Springfield Tournal, the home or
gan of the President elect, which is pre
sumed to speak his sentiments, takes
strong ground against any surrender of
principle. "In the late campaign our
party platform was before the country
the speeches of our leading men were
printed and scattered like the leaves of
Autumn—our presses, hundreds in num
ber, and issuing a combined'eireulation of
millions of copies, all united in proclaim
ing in language that could not be misun
derstood the real principles, aims, objects
and hopes of the Republican party. Under
such circumstances we formed the belief
that the whole country understood the
Republican position. We have been
charged by our enemies with favoring the
equality of the black and white races;
with 'a design to interfere with slavery in
the States where it lawfully exists.; with
opposition to the admission et* any more
Slave States ; with a determination to de
ny to the South the - benefit of a Fugitive
Slave Law ; with aiding and. inciting
slaves to`escape from'their masters; with
approving of 'the raid of John Brown;
and, - finally, with cherishing hatred to
ward our Southern brethren. Each and
every one of the above charges are base
falsehoods. It was dishonorable in our
enemies to stoop so low to conquer in the
recent campaign; it is criminal to reiter
ate those charges new. The Union of the
States still loyal to the--Constitution—the
ultimate • return, to duty of those States
which have so unwisely attempted to se
cede—the avoidance of civil war—the
salvation of- the Government, and the
restoration of fraternal affection, all de
pend, in 'a great measure, upon a true
understanding of the position of the 80-,
publican party by the people of the South
ern States. To preserve interests so vast,
and- to bring about results so earnestly
desired by all good men, may we not
cherish the hope that the hOneit and pa
triotie men of the opposing parties, North
and South, will take some pains to post
themselves as to the:real principles, aims
and objects of the Republican organiza
tion ?, It would be &little matter to print
the Republican platform in- the leading
Southern, papers, and to accompany it
With the questions propoted by Mr. Doti
gigs to Mr. Lincolb, and his (Lincoln's)
answers thereto. If this could be done,
theßouthern people would at once under
stand that the Republican party does not
favor the equality of> the black and white
races—does not oppose the adniission of
more,Slave States,does not propose to
interfere with slavery in the States where
it lawfully exists—does not propose to
deny to the South the benefit of a Fugi
tive Slave Law—is not in favor of inciting
slaves to escape, nor in aiding.them, to do
so—did not approve of John Brown's in:
of Virginia, but severely condemn
ed it—and„ finally, does not cherish hatred
toward the people of the South, nor seek
to deprive them of any Constitutional
right: If the Southern people would read
our platform, they would find the whole
matter resolving itself into this : The Re
publican party believes that Congress has
a right, under the ConstitutiOn, to exclude
slavery from the Territories, and that it is
the duty , of Congress to exercise that
right. 'ltis the freedom of the Territo
ries, as such alone, that we demand.—
When the people who may inhabit those
Territories shall bring them to the doors
of- the Union for admission, they should
be adthitted with or without slavery, as
said people may determine. This is the
belief, the doctrine, the, principle, that we
Urge Republicans to cling to, to the last.
It is to this we refer when we say : No
S'onnErimu—STAND FIRM-BE TRUE."
AMERICANS RESISTING A FORCED

The Union's Congratulation.
The Patriot and Union congratulates
us on the conservative position taken in
our article d the Ist inst. We are glad
to see that the scales axe falling from the
eyes of our eotemporary, and that he is
b6ginning to see that the Republican par
ty is the only conservative party of. the I
Union. May. we not be permitted, in.
candor, to acknowledge the fairness and
honor with which the Patriot and Union
concedes to us all the substantial honors
of victory in the late canvass, by its manly
agreement that the restoration of the Mis
souri Compromise ought to be a satisfac
tory settlement of our present difficulties?
In our turn, we heartily congratulate
our neighbor on his full and sufficient ac
knowledgment of the terrible , wrong corn
tnitted by his party in repealing that
time-honored agreement, under which our
country lived so happily and'agreeably.
We assure our neighbor, that it is with
the most heart felt pleasure that we per.
sieve he is, coming to "a right mind."—
We are sorry, however, that in his genu
ine and honest sympathy with our efforts
to restore peace and harmony, and to as
sure our sister States of the friendly
feeling of the glorious Old Keystone, that
he has to encounter the formidable ob.
staele presented by the declaration of the
Democratic State Central Committee—
"that our glorious UmoN is already dis
solved and needs re-construction." We
are quite sure that our cotemporary's un
doubted loyalty to the Union, and hearty
love for the Constitution, cannot, be alto
gether-reconciled to the secession heresy
of ggreconstruction" adopted by the State
Committee of the Democratic party.
The Enforcement of Law is Peace.
The magazine called The Advocate of
Peace, which is devoted to the diffusion
of the gentler principles of human duty,
argues with much force that the mere
sentiment of peace cannot control or
cure the evils of society. For that we
,must look to Government which embodies
the powers specifically requisite for the
protection of society. When any wrong
is-done or attempted by disaffected class
es or persons, when pirates infest the
seas, or miscreants fire and steal, when a
mob'prowls through the streets, or rebel
lion lifts its head in a State, the only
method of meeting it is by the rigid en
forcement of thealaws. The Advocate
"Here, then, is the province of Government,
which was made on purpose to keep peace by a
prompt, energetic exercise of its authority. Is
not this just the way, as all experince proves,
to keep peace betireen families or communities?
So on the largest scale. It was General Jack
son's firmness in upholding the authority of
our National Government, and his inflexible
purpose to enforce its laws at all, hazards, that
restrained nullification in 1883,; and had the
same hand held the reins when border ruffian
ism attempted such abomniable outragei in
Kansas, it would doubtless have averted nearly
all-the enormous evils . that ensued. So of the
wholesale•nullificition that now assumes the
form of secession'at the South. It is, in its
origin and its essential character, a question of
obedience to Government ; and a judicioui, yet
energetic; unflinching enforcement of its laws
would have been precisely the measure of peace
needed at the right time to meet the case."
The Advocate only expresses the opia•
ions of all law4biding citizens is every
part of the nation.
The Extradition Case.
An item of news by the last steamer to
the effect that the Court of Queen's Bench
in England had granted a writ of -habeas
corpus in the case of the negro Anderson,
a fugitive from the State - of Missouri,
now in jail at Toronto, Canada, is likely
to impart much importance to the case.
It hai been already stated that the Cana
dian Courts decided that he ought to be
surrendered, on the requisition of the
Governor of Missouri, bitt that the sur
render is delayed for such farther legal
proceedings as are applicable to the case.
If the , action of. the Court of Queen's
Bench shall have the effect to remove
the prisoner to England, and to discharge
him from custody, it may become a sub
ject of diplomatic correspondence between
the two countries. The principle involved
is similar to that in the case of Kentucky
against Ohio. The offence committed is
against the laws of the State from whence
the fugitive fled; but as slavery does not
e*ist in the British dominions, it cannot
be a crime there for a negro to kill the
person attempting to prevent his escape
from slavery. If the British Government
intended to limit the operation of, the
treaty to crimes pronounced such by En
glish, and not by American law, it should
have done so by express terms, instead of
seeking to evade what appears to be a
plain argument between the two countries.
SENATOR CRITTENDEN is quite Over
joyed with the fact that Kentucky has de
clined to call a State Convention, and
says it is one of the noblest appeals ever
made for a compromise, which he trusts
may not go unheeded..
FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Correspondence of the Daily Telegraph
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 1861
The decline of Rome showed itself at the very
hour when the Roman people were deemed most
invincible. Amid its pomp and glory, its first
death knell - was rung, and the Roman Empire
began to tremble and totter towards the grave.
It was not the more apparent that Rome was on
a decline, because her masses were suffering and
groaning beneath oppression and wrong. The
evidence of her retrograde was in the pomp and
extravagance of her rulers, as well as the licen
tiousness and climes of her aristocracy. The
people of the Roman Empire loved liberty as
fondly as freedom was wooed and adored by the
heroes of this Republic, but they were blinded
by the glare, the parade and the exhibition of
the Empire, until the very chains which held
them in bondage were regarded as the emblems
of a proud and glorious distinction. As riot
ruled in Rome, and the Collosium echoed with
the groans of the dying Gladiator, her glory
faded from the vision of men, and her name
became a by-word and reproach among the na
tions of the earth. Has it Jaever occurred to
you that we occupy a position similar to that
which Ronae held when the Camara were filling
the Roman temples with their proudest trophies?
We are equally as egotistical, fully as combat
ive, and although ,we have not reacted - the age
of Rome by many hundred years, we have ex
tended our conquests over as large if not a lar
ger territory, and boast a government as power
ful as ever made the Roman arms and laws ter
rible to their enemies and their neighbors.—
Nor do we lack the extravagance and licentious
ness of the declining Roman Empire. Alai; this
truth is the saddestof all those which now press
so heavily on the heart of this nation. While
business is palsied, by panic, and thousands of
laboring men all over the land, are beg
ging to preserve their families from star
vation, the riot and the extravagance of
the American ariskeracy is neither abated or
abridged. If the masses of this country could
see and understand the condition of affairs in
. this city, they would indeed march on the Fed
eral metropolis and take immediate if not vio
lent possession of the government. Here re
velry, Instead of revolution, prevails. From the
heat of debate, during which the most inflame
ble language is uttered, to be telegraphed
through the land, honorable members hurry
to the banquet room, where, in the blaze of
excitement and gas light, they pledge them
selVes to each other in costly wines, caring-very
little for the country or their constituents.
Each man in power has his idea, which he pre
sents as superior to all others. Each Represent
ative or Senator has his prejudice to Berta;
and after that is accomplished, the country can
go to the devil for aught they are concerned.
After these are attended to;-the-time is left to
its own direction, while the public Imisiness is
generally consigned to the patient can of nn
kno,wn and unrequited subordinates. It is a
fact,' that we have grown too extravagAnt, too
egotistical, and too aristocratic to last much
longer as a Republic. The distinctions In sod
ety. are also too - marked, and the respect which ,
is due to honest habor and honorable' prirpose,
too often misdirected to adulate some ambitious
demagogue, merely because he has the power
of bestowing position and patronage upon all
who follow where be may lead. If the Ameri
can people desire to escape their present diffi.-
culties, they must first rid themselves of a class
of men who now control legislation. They
must hunt froth place and power the de,ma
gogues who have Almost ruined the Republic,
and secure the labors of others who will serve
them honestly, and with a purpose to promote
their happiness and prosperity.
We have all sorts of committees arriving' in
and departing from the Capital, each in quest
of business locking towards the preserva
tion' of the Union. The objects of these
gentlemen are, of cofirse, to be commended;
but it strikes me that self-respect and- a
proper regard for the e position, strength and
independence of the North, would at least sug
gest a manly attitude, instead of the cringing
bearing which some of these committees assume
towarde Southern Senators and Representa
tives. The people of the North are law-abiding
citizens. They derived their prosperity as much
from allegiance as their industry and enter
prize, hence they have nothing to dOn this
crisis but to re-assert their devotion: . to the
Union, and to continue to practice their hon
orable respect and observance to the' Constitu
tion and the laws. Amorig others, I under
stand that a committee has been here from
Pennsylvania, representing to members of Con
gress that the duty on iron could be reduced
without the least injury to the thousands and
tens.of thousands of people directly and indi
rectly interested in the protection of this source
of our industrial prosperity. It, seems to me
that there are those in the ' North actually
yearning to place themselves not only at the
mercy of the rebellion in the South, but who
are doing all in their power to transfer the la
bor and enterprise of the whole country at the
disposal of foreign.pauper competition. While
we are paying millions of dollars annually on
coffee and sugar, the least intimation Of an ,
tention to reduce such a tax is made a pretext
for justifying the revolution at the South, while
no committee is here from Louisiana to represent
to members of Congress that such a reductiOn
is demanded by the necessities of the times and
the crisis which convulses the country, as' haa
been represented by a committee from Penn
sylvania, on the suidect of a reduction of the
duty on iron. In this manner the real interests
of the North have always been damaged. By
just such dough-facediam the institution 'of
Slavery has been flattered and fattened, untilit
has become an overgrown and over-fedbluster
inebellY. Can't you and your contemporalies
In Pennsylvania induce such committees, as the
(mete which I now allude, to , remain at home,
and if they , do assume to represent the State,
compel them to do so in a manly and sensible
manner, or 'have themselves And their "actions
repudiated by the people? -
Intelligent men everywhere have all asserted
that the intent of this movement at the South
was not to redress a'wrong, or establish a more
liberal form of republican government. , I bawl
declared that the,whole movement was based
on a purpose to organize a more secure state of
aristocratic society at the South, the better not
only to protect negro slavery, but to establish
the servitude of every white laboring man and
mechanic in that region. This fact is beginning
to develop itself as South Carolina progresses
in her treason. In that rebellious State it is
openly asserted that they do not want the co
operation, aid or sympathy of the border slave
States, because society in those States is "uni
ted with a Yankee time of freedom!" That the cot
ton States along desire to form a confederacy,
and that if any of them should hereafter ex
press a determination to establish free institn
tious within their limits it would be the signal
forejecting them from such a confederacy. Let
the people of the free States understand this
subject, and let them at once adopt the real
facts in this revolution to guide them to such
action as will best secure the liberty they pos
sees, and increase their prospects for a future
increase of its blessings. To do this, they must
arm themselves to suppress the treason at the
South. It must come to this sooner or later.
For the welfare of humanity and religion let it
come at once.

There are now garrisoned in Washington
. hundred United States troops, con
sisting of cavalry, infantry and artilley. The
conduct of some of the lead volunteers has
been of a character to induce the governmint
to compel them to give up their arms, which
has caused their disbandment. The depart
