warm tupporter'of James Buchanan,' de:

"I am as much a lover of the Constitu

luve,tbe Unioti, when my constituents are
not equal to the men who catch—
when you ask we to love the Milo° in

respect and cannot behave he wih tend
liituselfah r aidlin bird He is,
we think, too honest to4.'et candidate fee
an office not with a hope otsuceess but io
defiiat a rival. This is the position, how
ever, that is assigned him by the Wash
ington Organ the loading. Fillmore. or
"Were the conservative national Amer
ican party to withdraw from the contest, a
schuotboy, who has learned addition and
subtractiou, could in one moment deduct
120 from 206, and show' Fremont!is vote
to be 176, and his majority over Buchan
an to be fifiy-six votes."
Now we ask any candid friend of Mr.
Fillmore in the North if hi
iolorth to is aware of
the position assigned him by this Sopth 7
ern Fillmore organ, and if he is a friend
of freedom will he nor consider it his 'duty
to oppose Inch a pioject. If, however,
you support Mr. Fillmore in the belief that
he will ho elected, then we can justify your
course as limiest citizens, but, for free
dom's rake, don't lend your votes to di.
vide and distract . the Northern majority iu
favor of tree soil and free homes, and elect
James Buchanan, with slavery, war and
eztravagam* in his train. •
OZ7' The religious sentiment of this (-pun
try was never called out in any political
conteSt. as it is in the one now before . ;the
people. It is making itself felt; sod there
are irresistible reasons why it should. Flo
so. There never was a time, perhaps..iu
any country, when so' bold an attempt rte
made to ignore the plainest teachings; of
the Christian religion, as is done at this
titan hy : the party supportiniMr. Buchan
au and Mr. Buchanan himself has avroW•
I ad doctrines which strike at the very foUn-
Alation of Christian itintitutienn. We qan
well see, with IlMse facts before lIA, why
the Christian - ieritinnut. of the -country
should bo opposed to Mr. Buchumni ; but
we ennuot reO how ,any, rum prples4ing to .

I support to the piratical, slarcry.extending, '
polygamy encouragiug; policy which looms 1
up like a mountain in the political position
of Mr. BUchanan. We would like to see
the man wh.i suppqris these principles,
kneel before his tnaker)io ask a hlessingon
his efforts. It seems to us that the con.
sciousuess of his own hypocrisy would
strike Lim dumb.
Pa The "popular so vercipty" doelvin e
some time since bald by the Locos, but
not non' advanced any more by their lend
era, we have frequently shown to be a "de
lusion and a snare." Gov Hetulin, in a
speech at Philadelphia, on Alonday, in re
viewing the Cincinnati platform, put t h e
absurdity of this doctrine iu a very strons ,
light. Ho said
"The next resolution says, the people of
the territory may permit or reject slavery
when they shall inve a ' , efficient number
of settlers, and meet to form a constitution.
This appears very plausible, but what, be
comes of the territory before these events
take place—it may bo 'filled with slavesand•
foluveholders. Well, you are in favor of
die Kansas-Nebratka 'bill, because you
here been told that it will give to the peo
ple the right to govern themselves. "You
belong to the territories? how do you like
' your governor ? In what manner did you
elect hint ?" "Well, to tell the truth, we
did not elect him at all ; Mr. Pierce op.
pointed Mr. Reeder to.govern ue, but be
soon left." "Ali ! yes, he had a little too
much of the old Jefferson. Democracy in
hitn: You elected then Mr. Shannon
"No, I sintet know that we elected hint ; he
alto was sent to us." " Well. you elected
your judges ?" "No. not exactly; M.
Pierce was 'kind enough to amid us our
judges, and among them a Chief JUstice
almost as good us Jeffries."" Well, you
have elected your Marshall and other. 'air
ihorities of coarse ?" "No, to tell you the
truth we had nothing to do with the elec
tion of any of the officers, nor with the
management of any of our affairs."
