Demoeratic Electoral Ticket.
The following is the regular Democratic elec
toral ticket formed by the Reading Convent-ion.
As there are spurious tickets in circulation,
Democrats should be careful to compare their
tickets with this before voting:
“The Jubilee Coming!”
Wentworth, the Republican Mayor of Chicago,
and editor of the Democrat of that place, thus
hails the election of Lincoln :
“We see the day of jubilee coming, when millions of
enmnehised slaves shall rend the heavens with their
shouts ; and all this under the farms of the Constitution,
andwuh the States of the Union kept compacted to
gether.” _
He don’]: tell us, however, what shall be done
with the enfranchiaed slaves. after the great act
shall have been accomplished by Lincoln’s
election. '
Col. Calms in his Boston speech said:
Let Boston be represented, as of old, by men of Whig
antecedents and Whig principles. (Cheer-s.) Let Mas
sachusetts be true to her ancient faith, and you will find
Pennsylvania in active sympathy with you in all your
interests in the next government of the nation.
Bnnnmt, and other aspirants for the United
States Senate, who were formerly Democrats,
please to take notice that. the Governor elect of
Pennsylvania. looks with special favor upon
men of Whig antecedents, and be warned in time
that they can expect no encouragement. from
his administration?
Linculn and the Fugitive Slave Law.
The following was telegraphed from Wash
ington to one of the New York papers:
“Wm. L. Hodge, of this city, Assistant secretary of
the Treasury under Fillmore, has received a. letter from
Thus. Cox-win, who has just visited Lincoln, assuring
him, on the authority of Lincoln, that if elected he will
enforce the fugitive slave law everywhere throughout
the non- slu-veholding States.” _
This assertion is-preposterons on the face of
it. In fulfilling such an intention, Lincoln
would tear the Republican yarty to fragments.
In no respect has the general government met
with fiercer opposition than when attempting
to conform to those provisions of ‘ the Con
stitution relating to fugitive. slaves which are
ascentially embodied in the fugitive slave law.
Ohio, Massachusetts, and some other States,
are:already, for all practical purposes, in a state
of open rebellion in regard to this subject, and
a Republican administration could not alter the
Is It So?
' The report is current that Mr. Lincoln has
prefiareda circular letter to be printed in case
of his election by a. majority of the people of
the Northern States, assuring the South of his
conservatism and respect for their rights, of
his intention to call to his councils Southern
men, (the names of Wm. C. Rives of Virginia,
John J. Crittenden of Kentucky, ex-Governor
Morehead and John Bell, five been mentioned,)
andto‘exclude therefrom the leaders of his
party, such as Seward, Sumner, Wilson, &e.
Ifsuch is Mr. Lincoln’s intention, why does
he not make it known now, and not. wait until
after the 6th of November? If it is his pur-
POBO *0 ignore Seward and his associates, out
of deference to the South. now is the time. to
say so. Sueh a statement after the election
would have no influence, and would be treated
with the contempt that treachery always brings.
Fortune, however magnificent, is never re
spected that is obtained under false pretences.
“ Let'it Come Now.”
The atmosphere of Boston seems to have had
a damaging efi'ect upon the conservatism of Mr.
Cnrtin, the Governor elect of Pennsylvania, for
we find'him advocating a speedy dissolution of
the Union. Like Gov. Banks, who presided at
the meeting, he is in favor of “letting the Union
slide,” 'in a certain contingency. Listen to
this :
If it is so, that the people, electing a President dis.
solve the Union, let it come now. (Prolonged cheering.)
[A person in the audience here cried out, '- So say we,
all of us,” which called forth shouts of laughter.]
That was a Very funny sentiment, calculated
$0 provoke “ shouts of laughter,” wasn’t it. ‘!
The morriment of the Boat-on Republicans at
the bare suggestion that the dissolution might
be near at hand, was quite characteristic of a.
set of men who have done more, by their ex
trenie conduct, to weaken the bonds of union,
by planting distrust of Northern fidelity in the
minds of the Southern people, than all the fire.

of Pennsylvania think of theirfiovernor elect,

_ __+,,.___. ' -
To (lzc People of Southern Italy .-
At a. solemn moment. for the national history
and for the destinies of the country I address
my words to. you, people of Southern Italy,
who, having in my name changed the State,
send me deputations of every class of citizens,
magistrates and representatives of your mu
nicipal bodies, asking to be restored to order,
blessed with freedom, and united with my king
dom. I will tell you by what thought I am
guided, and what is my consciousness of the
duties which a man placed by Providence on an
Italian throne ought to fulfil.
I ascended the throne after a great national
calamity. My father gave me a lofty example
by abdicating the crown to save his own dig—
nity and the freedom of his people. Charles
Albert fell sword in hand, and died in exile.
His death associated more and more the desti—
nies of my family with those of the Italian
people, who for so many centuries have given
to all foreign lands the bones of their exiles
as a pledge for restoring the inheritance of
every nation placed by God within the same
boundaries, and joined together by the bond
of a common language. 1 educated myself by
that example, and the memory of my father
was my guiding star. I could never hesitate
in my choice between a crown and a word I
had given. I strengthened freedom in an
epoch not very favorable to freedom, and I
wished that, as it developed itself, it should
take root in the manners of the people, for I
could never harbor any jealousy or suspicion
of ‘what was clear to my people.
By preserving freedom in Piedmont I reli
giously respected the heritage which the pro
phetic mind of my august fatherhad bequeathed
to all Italians. By representative franchise,
i by popular education, by the freedom of trade
\ and industry, I endeavored to increase the
l well—being of my people. I wished that the
1 Catholic religion should be respected, but also
‘i that every man should be free in the sanctuary of
: his aim condition; and, by strengthening civil
authority, I openly resistcddhat obstinate and
‘ scheming faction which boasts to be the only
friend and guardian of the Throne, but which
aims at ruling in the name of Kings, and
placed between the Sovereign and the people
the barrier of its intolerant passions.
This system of Government could not be
without effect on the rest of Italy. The con—
corcl between the Sovereign and the people in
the purpose of national independence and of
civil and political liberty, the Parliamentary
tribune and _the free Press, and the army, which ‘
had preserved its military traditions under the ‘
tri-color, raised Piedmont to the rank of stand- l
ard~bearer and arm of Italy. The strength 1
of my monarchy was not the result of the arts l
of a clandestine policy, but. of the open in
fluence of ideas and of public opinion. I was
thus enabled to maintain in that part of the
Italian people 'which was united under my
socptre, the notion of a national leadership,
(cgemouia,) whence was to spring the concor—
dant harmony of the severed provinces in one
single nation.
Italy was able to understand my conception
when she beheld my soldiers sent into the
fields of the Crimea beside the troops of the
two great Western Powers. I wished thereby
to acquire for Italy the right of participating
in all acts concerning the interests of Europe.
At the Congress of Paris my Ambassadors were
able to speak for the first time to Europe of
your Suffer-lugs. It became clear to all men
how the preponderance of Austria in Italy was
injurious to the balance of power in Europe,
and what dangers beset the independence and
freedom of Europe so long as the rest of the
Peninsula was subject to foreign influence.
My magnamimous ally, the Emperor Napo
leon 111., felt that the Italian cause was worthy
of the great nation he rules. A righteous war
inaugurated the new destinies of our country. 1
The Italian soldiers fought nobly beside the
unconqured legions of France. The volun— ‘
teers hasteniugfrom all Italian provinces, from
all Italian families, under the Cross of Savoy,
showed that all Italy had invested me with the
right of speaking and fighting in her name.
Policy put. an end to the war, but not to its ef
fects, which went on with their development,
following the unswerving logic of events and of
popular movement. ‘
Had I been actuated by that ambition which
is ascribed to my family by those who do not
consider the nature of the times, I could have
been satisfied with the acquisition of Lombardy;
but I had shed the blood of my soldiers, not. for
myself, but for Itoiy.‘ I had called the Italians
to arms. SeVeral Italian provinces had changed
their form of government to join in the war of
Independence-a. war opposed to their Princes.
After the peace of Villafranca those provinces
asked my protection against the threatened
restoration of their former Governments. If
the events of Central Italy were the consequence
of the war to which we had called the people,
-if the system of foreign intervention was for
ever to be banished from Italy, I had a duty to
recognize; and to uphold the right. of those
people legally and freely to utter their vote.—
I withdrew my Government—they made an
orderly Government; I withdraw my troops—
they organized regular forces, and, vieing with
each other in unanimity and civil virtues, they
rose to so high a reputation and strength, that
nothing but the overbearing violence of foreign
arms could have subdued them. Thanks to the
wisdom of the Central Italian people, the mon—
archical idea constantly gained strength, and
monarchy gave a moral guidance to that peace
ful popular movement. Thus did Italy rise in
the estimation of civilized notions, and it be- .
came clear to all Europe that the Italians were ‘
fit for self-government. 3
When I accepted the annexation I knew not 3
what European difficulties Iwas about to meet; ‘
but I could not. break the word I had given to 1
the Italians in my war proclamation. Those l
who would charge me with imprudencc should
calmly consider what. would become of Italy on ‘
the day in which monarchy should appear pow- l
erless to satisfy the want, of a national recon- l
stitution. The annexation did not. change the l
substance of the national movement, but it
assumed new forms. By accepting from the
popular .right those fine and noble provinces, I
must loyally recognize the application of that
principle, nor could I measure it by the rule of
my private feeling! and interests. In support 1
of that principle, I, for the good of Italy, made ‘
the sacrifice which cost my heart the dearest; 1
Irenouuced two most. noble provinces of the ‘
kingdom of my ancestors. ‘
I have always given those Italian Princes
who wished to be my enemies sincere counsels‘
resolving, however, that if those counsels were
vein, 1 would meet the danger to which their
blindness Would have exposed the throne by
accepting the will of‘ Italy.‘ It was in vain
that I offered to the Grand Duke of Tuscany
alliance before the war; in vain that, after the
peace. I offered the High Pontifl‘, in whom I
‘ venerate the head of the religion of my fathers
‘ apd of _ my pearly, to take upon myself the
l Vicar-ship of Umbria and the Marches. It was
' t that if th P ,- - ‘
evxden _ use tonnces, which were
only restrained by the arms of forei n hire—
lings, did not. obtain the security of “it civil
ized government which I proposed. the would
sooner or later break into revolution. yNeither
will I recall the counsels given for man cars
by the Powers to King Ferdinand of Niiflis _
The judgment which was pronounced agaihst,
his Government at. the Paris Congress naturally
prepared the people for a change, if the outcry
ofpublic opinion and the efi‘orts of diplomacy
proved to be of no avail. I offered the young
successor Of that. King an alliaan for the war
of independence. But there also I found souls
closed against all Italian feelings, minds dark.
. ened by passion and obstinacy. It was natural
that the events in Northern and Central Italy
should arouse men’s minds in the South. In
Sicily the excitement ,broke out into an open
insurrection. A fight began for freedom in
Sicily, when a brave warrior, devoted to Italy
and to me—Gen. Garibaldi—sailed to its aid.
They were Italians. Could I, ought I, to have
prevented them? The fall of the Government
of Naples strengthened in my heart the convic
tion that Kings and Governments should build
their thrones on the love and esteem of the peo
ple. The new Government in the Two Sieilies
was inaugurated in my name. But some of its
acts caused apprehension lest it should not in
every respect well interpret that policy which
is represented by my name. It was feared
throughout Italy that under the shade of a
glorious popularity, of a long-tried honesty, a
faction should muster which was ready to sac
rifice‘the forthcoming triumph of the national
cause to the chimeras of its ambitious fanati~
cism. All- Italians turned to me. that I might
avert this danger. It was my duty to do so,
because in the present. emergency it would be
no moderation, no wisdom, but weakness and
imprudence. not to take with a strong hand
the direction of that national movement, for
which lam responsible before Europe. 1 have
sent my soldiers into the Marches and Umbriu,
and scattereathat ill-sorted mob of people of
all nations and tongues which had gathered
there as a new, strange phase of foreign inter
vention, and the worst of all. I have pro—
claimed Italy for the It'alians; and will never
allow Italy to become the nest of cosmopolitan
sects, assembling there to hatch reactionary
plots, or to further the objects of universal
People of Southern Italy !—-—My troops march
into your country to strengthen public order.
I do not come to impose my will upon you, but
to see that yours is respected. You will be
called freely to manifest it. May the vote
you will deposit in the urn be inspired by that
Providence which protects a. righteous cause!
Whatever may be the course of events, 1 tran
quilly await the judgment of civilized Europe,
because I am convinced that I have fulfilled my
duties as a King and an Italian. My policy
may not, perhaps, he used to reconcile in Eu
rope the progress of the people with the sta
bility of mouarchies. I know that. in Italy I
close the era of revolutions.

Correspondence of the Boston Traveler
BEIBUT, SYRIA, Sept. 2,1860
The character of the Christians of Syria. is
so low, mean and despicable that were it not
for the fact that they belong to the common
brotherhood of man and are now great suf
ferers, they would receive but little sympathy
from those who know them well. They are
entirely deficient in what is called in civilized
countries, a sense of honor—and are so deceitful,
treacherous and ignoble that they furnish the
best. evidence in the world of the natural de-'
pravity of the human heart, and the inadequacy
of. their forms of religion and their religious
teachings for the work of civilizing and Chris
tianizing the people. The people are dread
fully Priest—ridden, while they detest and de
spise their Priests. The Bible is kept from all
but the Protestant sect, which is very small,
not numbering in all Syria and Palestine more
than one thousand men, women and children,
and the Greeks, Greek Catholics, Marouitcs,
Jesuits, are all quarrcling among each other
and among themselves. The Greeks and the
Greek Catholics have been known to unite with
the Druses in waging warfare against the Ma.-
ronites and are their most uncompromising
foes. Among themselves they have mo peace.
The leader in the anti-Bishop party in Tyre
is Mr. Akkaad, tse American Consular Agent,
and under the pr tection of the American flag
he is invulnerable to all the spiritual fnlmina
tions of the Church. The United States Consul
at Beirut has been beseiged by the Bishop and
his party to interfere in the matter. and break
down‘lhe opposition of his subordinate, but.
his answer is uniformly the same: “If you
have any criminal charges to bring against the
Consular Agent, I will examine them, but the
American Government, which protects all reli
gious alike in the United States, willnot inter
fere in matters of conscience and church disci
pline in Syria. The officers and agents of the
American government are not questioned or
influenced concerning their religious opinions.”
The Patriarch of the Georgian party has been
to Egypt to collect funds for the poor of Syria,
but. he furnishes relief only to those who adopt.
his calender and obey his will. Others retain
all their collections, and furnish relief 'to no
one; One priest still has sixty thousand piss
tres intended for distribution. and his people
make loud complaints against his avarice and
dishonesty. The priests who went to America
a. few years ago to collect funds for schools and
hospitals, have also defrauded the people, who
have now lost confidence in them almost en
Many Christians of Damascus are now selling
their souls to the devil by giving Turks and
Arabs of that city certificates of good character,
knowing full well that they murdered many of
their brethren. They do this for money, and
thus rob justice of 1101- due and screen the guilty
from punishment.
The Christians of Sidon who witnessed. the
massacre of their relatives and friends, and
who have since been constituted agents for the
Turkish Government, to pay out the daily al
lowance to the podr refugees from Hasbeyia
and Rasheyis, have just been detected in an
attempt to rob them of one-fourth of the scanty
allowance provided by the Moslem authorities
for the purpose of keeping them alive! There
is little in such a character to arouse sympathy
or excite brotherly regard. Christian mission
aries are nowhere more needed than among the
somalled Christians of Syria, for never, in my
opinion, has the term of Christian been so mis
applied as to the people of the Holy Land.
Mr. Consul Brant, of Damascus, writes. “ The
local, authorities continue to supply a. little
money and bread, but the supply will not suf
fice; when the cold and damp weather arrives.
tiring and warm bedding and clothing must
then be added. Already sickness is extending,
and there being no medical assistance for the
sufferers, a great mortality may be anticipated.
In short, the prospect‘f the approaching win
ter is sufficiently gloomy, and dearness of
bread will, I fear, be added to the other cause
of sufl'ering.”
In View of this state ofthings, Messrs. John
son nnd Moore, of the Anglo-American commit
tee, will urge the British Syrian Relief Fund to
send outs. medical corps at once, with all neces
sary medicines, nurses and hospital stores for
the relief of the Damuscenes, and meanwhile
such medical aid as can be spared from Beirut
will be sent immediately.
The American and European ladies of this
city are very busy in making up clothes for the
naked and sick, and their appeal for materials
is loud, pressing and worthy of the aid and
sympathy of the humane and benevolent every
FICIAL 1s Human—4 correspondence from
Pesth, Hungary, writes that. during his recent
oflieiai tour through Hungary, General Bene
deck, ,the imperial governor, had a. good occa
sion to see unmistakable signs of the spirit
reigning in that country. Having arrived at,
Nagy Koeros, and visited the public institutions
of that city he invited a, certain number of
persons to dinner. When the desert came on,
one’of those guests, giving him an ancient.
batileaxe, said. “General, I give you as a keep
sake that ancient weapon; it. is one of those
which ware used by the tetanus Black Regiment
of our heroic King Maihias Kbrvinus,-when it
stormed Vienna and expelled. the Emperor

made a‘bow as if he did not. understand the
allusion, and accepted the gift with thanks.

steamer Moses Taylor had touched there. The
ultimatum of the American Government had
been rejected by Peru, so far as the Lizzie
Thompson, Georgiana. and the Victoria. claims
are concerned. This refusal would compel the
American minister to demand his passport.
The ship Lucy M. Hale was partially burned
on the sth ult, at Callao.
A frightful accident occurred on the 10th
ult.., in the dry dock at San Lorenz, involving
the entire loss of the Peruvian frigate 0:111:10,
formerly the Auperimac, and great loss of life.
The frigate was being docked, with all her crew
on board. when some staunchions of the dock
gave way, causing the vessel to pitch over,
when she rapidly filled with water and sunk.—
A great number of people were below, inclu
ding men, women and children, and the sick in
the hospital, all of whom perished.
All the particulars of the disaster were not
known at the latest date, but it was believed
that the number of killed would reach 150.
The number of t the wounded, with broken
heads, arms and legs, was very great. The
Callao was a. 44 gun frigate, built at Blackwell,
England, six years ago. The deck was also
damaged and rendered useless. .

Mr. V anderbilt had made the Government an

Advices from Guayaquil state that Flores was
