and Mr. BROWNS proceeded to address the
meeting in a logical and clear exposiiion of
ibe potiiical issues of the present campaign,
and to vindicate the Democratio party from
the false charge of being for slavery propa
gandism. His address was conclusive and
must have worked conviction on every mind.

was called out, and he proceeded to discuss
the slavery issue In an impressive and forci
ble manner. He showed that the Republi
can party was not content'with the compro
mises which the fathers of the republic es
tablished, but that it was lakiug issue against
the constitution ol the Union—where it re
cognized the existence of slavery. He held
ihe audience until li o'clock with his able
exposiiion of Repubiicati hypocrisy; and af
ter he concluded the thanks of the meeting
were voted to the speakers, and the people
retired well pleased.

The eolith for Fremont.
The Evening Journal, an independent
paper of Philadelphia, hae the following re
marks in an editorial on the subject of ihe
interference of British statesman in onr po
litical affairs and the slavery question :
"To detach the Sooth from the North has
long been, we believe, the cherished aspira
tion of English politicians and traders, and
if they can but effect their purpose, they
care, perhaps, very little whether it in ac
complished by a simple severance of the
commercial relations of ihe sections, by
which means Great Britain may be inter
posed between them, or by a dissolution of
their political Union. For the fortunes of the
negro, British statesmen and merchants have
not one particle of honest disinterested sym
pathy. They have too large a stake in the
profits of American slavery to abolish it to
morrow, if they had the power."
"Use Nrterbosier."
This is the significant soubriquet applied by
the good people of Lehigh county, mostly
Germans, to the Abolition party of the Stale,
now sailing under the disguised flag of so
called Black Republicanism. It is a German
phrase, and the translation of it, we believe,
is "Xigger Kiseeie." When it is recollected lite present Fremont party is only an
extension of the old Abolition parly of the
State—.the same thing, with a new name—
the opilhetj is not misapplied. Our native
PennsWcgWi Germans have a world-wide
renown as a sagacious and discriminating
people, and amidst sit ike serpentina iwir
ings of ihe enemy, they never lose sight of
his track, and generally call things by their
right names. The term " Negerbotstr" is not
In Cobtrust with Republican Fanaticism.
Last week at a Democratic pole raising in
Lancaster City Chief Justice Litwts happen
ed to be present, and was invited to address
ihe meeting, but lie respectfully declined on
the ground thai his position as a member of
the Judiciary forbade him from taking so ac
tive a participation in the campaign—at the
same lime he fell a lively interest in the
struggle, and earnestly desired the election
of the great and noble standsrd bearers ol
the Democratic parly, and deprecated the
sectional issue now, for the first time, pre
sented iu the history of the conntry. The
Judge was most heartily greeted by his old
friends tmd neighbors.
Joseph Illss goes for Fremont.
The celebrated Jos. Hiss, of nunnery in
vestigation notoriety—and who raised such
a dust in the Massachusetts Legislature a
year ago, by taking a woman of a Legisla
tive Investigating Committee to which he
belonged, and chaining her expenses to the
Slate—goes (or Fremont as the best repre
sentative of the principles ol the 'American'
party which he, the said Joseph Hiss is
such a worthy and illustrious member. Jo

The New York News fays that ihe pro

The Straggle in Coagrest Over.
The House of Congress on Saturday fin
iahed the work of the extra session, by pass-
I ing Ihe army bill without the proviso decla
' ring that the President shall not employ the
United States tronps in enlorcing the territo
rial laws. The present sta'e of affairs in
Kansas, the general rising reported on the
Missouri border in consequence of the re
cent assault on Franklin by the Lane parly,
the probability that the free State party
would be speedily overpowered il there war
not some lawful authority existing to check
their excesses, snd also to keep down the
violence of the Missourians, who are prepa
ring to drive their opponents out of the terri
tory, all show how improper was such a re
striction on the executive. The presence of
the United Stales troops is the only thing
which keeps these two factions from slsying
each other.
Alexander Hamilton.
This eminent statesman is reported to have
uttered the following words, a short time
previous to his death :
"To brtak this Union would bwk my htarl."
Let ns pause and ponder upon these re
maraable words, and determine that the
Union shall be preserved until time shall be
' no more.
[ Did Congress every legislate negro slavery
into a Territory 1 No. Why! Because it
, has no authority under the Constitution to do
. so. Has it then authority to legislate slavery
; out of a Territory, or prevent its existence in
i a Territory! Clearly not. Tba rale most

[• carrying the war into Africa, and bearding
the lion in his den. A correspondent of l>be
Harritburg Keystone thus deacribes his late
achtevment at Montrose:
From this day forward job may dare
wonderful change in public opinion, upon
the aubjecta of Abolitionism, Freesoil, Bleeding
Kansas and other abominationfl on the bor
ders of New Vork.andPennsyisar.ia. {went
to Montrose the 18th inst., where
I found front, four to fiee thousand people in
qmiiicil at the Coutt House Square. Just as
(arrived, Ellis Schnabel, Esq., of Phila
delphia, mounted the stand to harangue the
multitude. Gov. Daniel S. Dickinson of this
place had just taken his seat, after (as I was
informed) having delivered an able address.
I have no personal acquaintance with Mr.
Scbnabel, although I have olten heard him
pronounce in Phfltdelphia those powerful
! political harangues for which be is so distin
guished. i expected an able speech—but I
was by no mean? prepared for what followed.
He threw all his former reputation, as a
scholar, logician and orator, ao far into the
shade, that I listened with wonder. Beyond
all question, be is the mpst learned an elo
quent debater we have. He began by defin
ing and tracing the long established principles
of our government, and holding up to view
the many brilliant victories of the National
Democracy. Then h brief y sketched the
history, principles and purposes of the opposing
factions of whatever name. His sharp and
tailing fire inane particular direction, soon I
betrayed the objset of this eloquent man, and
directly it fell, jn the shape of a bold and
resolute challenge to his Honor, Judge Wit
mot, (of proviso notoriety) who was standing
at my side, listening to the speech. Mr.
Schnable slated that he had challenged David
Wilmot, in wining, some time before, but
receiving no answer, he now gave the chal
lenge in person, from the public stand, Mr.
Wilmot being present. When the gauntlet
was thrown, Wilmot, much excited, said "by
G , that fellow is after me," and imme
diately sent a note to Mr. S , stating that he
had written In Mm, accepting the challenge,
hut to discuss the issues in Southern Pennsylva
nia. This paper did not reach Mr. Schnabel
until after the meeting. In the evening, at
another meeritjg, Mr. S, in a brief speech,
Stated to the audience Hist his challenge was
confined to Wilnud's district, where the public
mind had long been abused.
Bui to return try his afternoon address. For
two hours and a half he held that large as
semblage, at limes breathless, and anon,
rending the air witn their shouts, which it
was impossible to suppress. This was the
greatest intellectual feat 1 have ever witness
ed on the stump; and I have heard the ablest
men in the country. Black Republicanism,!
and Native Americanism, were called up in 1
succession and crushed in his grasp like the
toys of a child.
And last of nil, Wilmot himself wns picked
! up—his treason—deceit—inconsistency and
folly—were scattered like chaff belore the
| wind. After the speaker had by learned ar
gument, shown the folly, danger and turpe
ludc of the Judge's politics, there came like
an avalanche, /he terrible and scathing de
nunciation of bis false gods, and an appeal
to the people ,with such t> burst of eloquence
that the Fremont men found their hearts
beating with the old Democratic fire, (fur at
least two thousand of them were present)
and taken by surprise, found themselves
sending up a shout fot James Buchanan.
Thu speaker, much estintreled, eat down
amidst the most deafening cheers. Wilmot
left the ground, cowed by this opening of his
powerful adversary ; and the following eve
ning to a thin and dejected audier.ce of dia
onionists publicly backed out from Mr. Schna
bel's challenge, declining, aa a reason, to his
friends, that John W. Forney, a debased, un
scrupulous politician, and James Buchanan,
a G ■ ' d <i——d treacherous old Federalist,
should not send out their dirty mercenary
hireling into his district to drag him down.
Wilmot's worst passions were roused beyond
control, and by his abuse and profanity, he
P'oved that he had found his msster in Ellis
B. Schnabel, the champion of Democracy.
When Mr. Schnabel returned from addres
sing other meetings at Friendsville and
Brooklyn, and learned of Wilmot's vulgar
abuse, he instantly proposed lo the friends
of Mr. Buohanan, to canvass every township
in Wilmot's district, and disabuse the public
mind ot bis vile sophistries and widted per
versions of truth and history. I learn the
arrangements are all made. Look out for a

The Williamsport Gazette gives the fol
lowing account of the manner in which Mr.

On Friday evenfwg, August 22d, Mr. Diven
of Elmira, made a speech to a Black Repub
lican meeting at the Court House and threw
out a challenge for discussion. At the con
clusion of his speech, Mr. Schnabel, who
was present, accepted the challenge and
proceeded to reply to Mr. Divaty The fire
was 100 heavy to be endured, ant|soon drove
the whole party out of the houai. First the
President retreated and was son followed
by the orators of the party. "ihe Fremont

adjourned without further debate. Mr. Diven

saying he "he had other fish to fry," &c.,
showing that bis challenge was mere brag.
As he ran out of the house Mr. Schnabel
called to trial, that he would meet him at

Bllltla m a Vubstitnte for the Army.
Union, in an article 'bn
the Aitny AppropvigtioflUlill, speak* at fol
lows :
"Whether the army be disbanded or not,
there stands at last Ibe great power of the
President of calling upon the militia of the
"States ; and a brigade fro.-n South Carolina,
Pennsylvania, or any other State, summoned
to the vindication of law, will be foond thor
oughly loyal to the constitution and the
Union. If ibe worst shall come, no one
can doubt that the President will exercise
all the power vested in him by the consti
tution to execute the lawa and preserve
the integritj of the republic. Hence, what
ever temporary triomph or advantage may
be gained by any faction or pnrly, in Kansas
or elsewhere, against the constitution, cohld
only result in signal disaster—the thirty-one
etars alone can float in triumph when the
smoke of the conflict lias passed away."
We took occasion a few days ago, to call
attention to this fact, to show how futile was
the attempt of the House of Congress to im
pose a restriction upon the constitutional
power of the President, by annexing a con
dition to the army bill, which would prevent
the employment of the troops in Kansas to
restore order or peace in that territory. If
the President is denied the employment of
the regular army, hp wilt be compelled to
call upon the militia to execute the laws,
and how would the Iriertds of free Kansas
like to see the militia of South Carolina, Mis
souri or Mississippi mustered into service, to
maintain the supremacy of the laws! The
duties of every constitutional government are
best performed when eacb branch of it keeps
within its own legitimate jurisdiction. As
soon as any one branch travels beyond that,
it is likely to produce notltiog but mischief.

Frighlfal Ravages of the Cholera In Mu
From Maderip we have disastrous news.
Some Portuguese Hoops left Lisbon on the
20th June, for Funchat. There is every rea
son to believe that cholera prevailed at
Beiem before the troope left, yet, notwith
standing the ridiculous airictness of the Por
tuguese authorities about quarantine, these
soldiers were allowed to proceed to Muderia.
At sea cholera broke out amongst :lin troops,
and when they landed at Funchal a Fair was
being held, the troops mixed with the in
habitants, and cholera broke out amongst the
latter. When the Avon left Maderia on the
3d of August there had been 5000 cases of
cholera and 1500 deaths amongst the popula
tion of Funchal, which numbered only
28,000. There were no medical men, nor
any medicines, in the island, and the people
were dying for the want of them. The panic
which this calamity caused at Funchal was
terrible ; all business was suspended, the
shops were closed, and every family isolated
itself. The dead lay unhurried in the ceme
tery, and fires were kindled there to mitigate
the evil effects arising from the putrefaction
of dead bodies. The Government at length
got twelve men to dig graves, and -ia*jS
them literally dug their own, for ihey died
almost immediately, and were buried in (he
graves ihey lad dug for others. The cholera
had been raging fearfully at Funchal for five
days before the Avon left.
Bishop Mead, of Virginia, has ad-1
dressed a teller lo Protestant Churchmen, in I
which he discourages any active participa
tion in politics on the part of ministers of the
Gospel' He says he "never gave but one
vote at an election, and that at an early pe
riod." Clergymen shonld be as free as any
other citizens to take part in politics ; in fact
it is their duty to exercise all the rights of a
free citizen. No reasonable man objects to
a olergyman voting or speaking on political
topics, in proper places, but no truly reli
gious man wishes lo see the pulpit turned
into a political rostrum, or to hear a political
harangue when he goes lo listen to the word
of God. It is politics in Churches which
people object to, and in cler
sample of the credit to be attached to the list

that it is not less than six thousand / nearly

A Two-hendrd Child.
The birth of a child with two heads has
created much gossip during the last few days
in the locality of Temple atreet, Bristol, and,
indeed, wherever the intelligence ol the ar
rival of thia curious little stranger has reach
ed. The mother ia the wife of Mr. Look,
baker, 120 Temple street, and the child, a
boy, is living, and was a fortnight old on the
Bth inst. The ordinary head of the child is
of the natural size, and has a really beautiful
face ; the superfluous head projects from the
right side of it, and is about the size of s
man's fist. The child has four eyes, four
ears, and two mouths, but there is no chin to
the smaller head; the mouth ia deformed,
and ihe eyea have become useless; they
have lost their lustre, and are falling out of
their sockets. There is an internal connec
tion between the two heads, for when one
mouth works the other wofks, When it cries,
the sound issues from both ; and when the
child is fed Ihe second mouth moves as if
craving food, and we believe it may be fed
at either. Up to the present time the child
has thriven, and the faouliy are divided as
to its prospect of existence, some holding

When the mechanics at the Navy

Mr. Buchanan made a powerful appeal, ia

then Secretary of the Navy. In every situfc

Al Concord, Preble county, Ohio, a Urge
Democratic meeting wa. recently held. A
delegation of fifty.four young ladies attended
from Boston, Wayne county, Indiana, in au
immense hickory wagon, drawn by eight
horses. Each lady was dressed in whi'.e,
ane hold in ber hand a small ryhite flag bear
ing the names of Buchanan and Breckin
ridge. Around the wagon was stretched a
pink colored canvass, contsining the motto,
" White Husbands or None." This ia the way
to say it. The reproof of the present disgust
ing attempts to elevate the negro to en equal
ity with, or superiority to the white race, wav
well limed and forcible. We like to hear
the wild fanatics thus rebuked, who would
crush out the manners of our forefathers, as
well as their principles of government.
ty Fred Douglass (who is ■ negro) has
hauled down the name of Gerril Smith for
President, in his newspaper, and now en
dorses Fiemont and Dayton. This secures
for the Black Republicans the colored rote in

property hare a right to role. We wish
them a happy time with their colored asso

be satisfied with such men as Rulue Choate,

very Christian doctrine, thai every southern
