This paper has at all times been conser
vative in its principles, deliberate in its
conclusions, and cautious in its estimates
of public opinion. It bas been from the
beginning an advocate of the interests of
the industrial classes of citizens, and a
steady defender of free labor. In days
that are past, when the "Journal" was con
dueled by one of its ablest and most patri
otic Editors, it was a Whig, Anti-Slavery
publioition, as open in its opposition to the
domination of the slave power, as any of
the Whig papers of Pennsylvania. After
the enactment of the Acts of Congress of
1850, generally kno vn as the "Coinpro•
mise acts," the Journal hoping that those
acts, unjust and unfair as they were to the
people of the free States, would be the ter
mination of the demands of the slave-hol•
dors, and that no further claims would be
made by them upon the people of the free
states, and being desirous at all times to
preserve the peace and harmony of the
people of all the states. the Journal with
drew from the contest concerning slavery,
and for sonic years past has remained neu
tral upon the subject, although it has con
tinually been the bone of contention be
tween the North and the South. We had
hoped that moderation and justice would at
length prevail in the Counoils of our sou
thern brethren, and that there would at
some time be an end to their extravagant
and monstrous demands upon the people
of the free States. The success of one of
the unjust demands of the slave power,
seems only to sharpen its appetite and pro.
yoke its thirst for the achievement of oth
ers, each one being more enormous than
that which preceded it. The destruction
of the Missouri Compromise, founded and
established by Henry Clay, and other
slave-holders in Congress, in 1820, as they
alledged, for the purpose of defending the
free states and territories against the ad
vance of slavery north of 36° 30' of north
latitude, and which was offered as a pledge
and consideration, for the admission of Mis
souri into the Union as a slave state, has
proven that the slave power is bound by no
obligation, and feels no restraint of honor,
if honor bears against the ascendency of
the dominion of slavery. The attempts of
the slave-holders, (backed, upheld and sup
ported by President Pierce and his col
leagues) to force slavery into Kanzas, and
establish it there, in contempt of the Mis
• semi Compromise, which expressly guar
ded this Territory against the encroach
ments and pollutions of slavery, is the first
part of the dishonest destruction of the
This violation of a national compact, has
already produced lawless and tyranical in

enactment of bloody and attrocious edicts

to these pretended Laws, President Pierce
requires the citizens of Kanzas to yield o

by the soldiers of the United States Army.
Already have numerous murders been per-
petrated by the invaders upon peaceable
citizens of Kanzas, and no attempt has
been made by the President to bring the
murderers to justice. In view of the pre
lent condition of things, the Whig organi

John C. Fremont is talked of as the Repub

aire of California, a son-in-law of Col. Benton,
and probably the richest man in the world. But
he cannot be made available to the Republicans
and will refuse a nomination by a party for
which he can have no sympathy. His father-in
law would probably accept the nomination if
offered, but he is quite too old. We believe
