The Election to-day. Wo aro likely
to have opposition to tho olection of Col,

TnE Recsrdqf the Itnus, and tha Scran
ton Republican, have bellowed long and
loud for a "Union candidate for Congress,"
and now that we have such a nominee,
they betray their iuccrity by opposing tho
election of Col. Wuiqht. Our neighbor
of tho Columbia co. Republican, declares
ostensibly in his favor, but that is only, as
per force of circumstances, for thoy all
evidently think more of Utcir party than

Who would think, judging from the son
timcnts now held by tho present head of
tho National Administration, Abraham
Lincoln, that he on January 12, 1848, as
may be seen by referring to Appendix Con,
Globe, 1st Session 30th Congress, pago 01,
had used tho following emphatio language
in advocacy of tho right of secession and
''Any people, anywhere, being inclined
and having tho powor, have a right to rise I
up and shako off tho existing government
and form a now one that suits tlicm better.
This is a most valuable,. a most sacred
right a right which we hope and believe,
is to liberate tho world. Nor Is this right
confined to cases in which the whole pooplo
of an existing government may choose to
exorcise it. Any portion of such people
that can, may .revolutionize and make their
own of so much of tho territory as they
inhabit. Moro than this, a majority of
any portion of such people may revolution-
izo, putting down a minority, intermingled
with, or near about them, who may oppose
their movements. It is a quality of rev-
olutions not to go by old lines or old laws
but to break both and mako new ones,"
We do not state these things with a view
to find fault with them, but merely to show
those Republicans hereabout who aro so
ungenerous as to iudulgo iu slang and
abuse of the Democratic paity at this timo,

ern States wcro loath to break tho compact
with their brethren of the North. They
had seen a party rising to tho height of
power, which put forth ns ono of their
ruling principles tho dogma that no South
cm man should bo permitted to carry with
him into tho common Territory of tho
Union his slave property. They believed
that if tliis dogma was to rule, their rights
wcro trampled upon. Thoy had seen some
sixty member of Congress, of the Repub
lican party," voto in Congress for a resolu
tion providing for tho abolition of slavery
everywhere. Theso things aroused their
fears and they asked somo guarantee for
tho future protection of their Constitutional
rights, against theso men who seemed to
disregard Constitutional obligations. They
appealed to. their fellow citizens of tho
North. Tho Crittenden Resolutions wero
presented as a basis, and tho Democracy
of tho North, with thousands of tho moro
conservative Republicans, urged tho adop
tion of them, or somo similar terms of
conciliation. Tho merchant, tho mechanic,
nnd the farmer, all joined in this appeal,
and sent forward their committees and their
pctitioni, urging Congress to adopt somo
satisfactory mode of adjustment without
resort to the dread alternative of war. In
this effort to "savo tho Union" wo wero

that party which never yet refused to

rights of our country or resenting insults

true to tho great principles which it has
over professed, truo to tho Union, spoko

of our party aro now stigmatized as "dough

been wont to ridicule Democrats as "Union

to appeal to tho basest pastions of the

to commit depredations upon the persons

Confessing their Object.
Mr. Cassius M, Clay, whom Mr. Lincoln
has sent to Europe to represent this coun
try, has writen a letter to tho London
Times, which is so well dissected by that
journal, whose comments we have publish
cd, that it is unnecessary to iDscrt it. Iu
tho course of that letter, however, Mr. Clay
has a paragraph which, wc presume, must
havo been a slip of pen, probably occa
sioned by forgetting for the moment that
it would find its way back to America.
He is endeavoring to coax John Bull to
forget his money, to "darn the expense,''
and Hand by tho great principle of negro
freedom, and iu doing this he says :
"WE overthrow that POLITICAL

Collins, of Dunmoro, held an investigation
at tho Mansion House, iu reference to the
murdered woman found in tin vicinity of

was Caroline Corwin. Her husband is
well known in Scranton, haviug relatives

agreed, and they parted some timo ago.
The husband, whoso namo isWm. Corwin,
went to Greenville, and wrote his wifo that
ho had a job there on the road, and wished
her to join him. She did so, and not re
turning homo, her friends instituted in
quiries, but could not discover her whero
abouts, or any cluo to her. Tho husband
left Grecnvillo, and was arrested on sus
picion of some foul play toward his wife.
IIo was lodged in jail, but after a time
released, Her relatives received an anon
ymous letter, stating if they would go to
a certain spot in the vicinity of Indian
spring, that her body would bo found.

Bristol, at whoso houso tha parties stopped,
had a prcscntimeut that sho was murdered
near their own houso, and Sunday, when
walking in the vicinity of tho spring, the
dog discovered tho body, which was in a
terrible stato of decomposition. It appetrs
