THE ENGLISH TROUBLE,
Our readers have doubtless observed,
front many indications, that an extraordt•
nary excitement relative to American af•
fairs at present prevails in England. It
may also be observed that, while the great
majority of the English believe that the
imbecile and unprincipled acts of the
Pierce adtninistration are really sanctioned
try• the people, even the better informed
as we gather front their papers. are simply
bewildered, and confess in all sincerity that
they do not understand us. and can make
nothing of us. They do not see how it is
that a highly td and
Aighly enlightener intelligent
nation, holding all power in its own hands,
can delegate the execution of that power
to a few weak and wicked men, or why
we should pick ont a man lacking every
thing but selfiAtit,s, to fill a position re
quiring the utmost confidence. 'Phey do
not understand our local quarrels, or why
a comparatively small body of men should
cantrol the great majority ; and, hnally,
they cannot in the least comprehend, akin,'
they rejoice nt it, why we do not protect
our own manufacturers. Perhaps there
are not in all England ten men of British
birth who comprehend the leading points
of American politics, the relations which
they bear to each other, and, finally, how
all is gradually being arranged under two
great heads—the North and the South.
But what the great majority of the Eng
lish very perfectly understand is, that a
prolonged war between our two countries
—no tnatter who wins or loses—will be a
cause of unexampled ruin and suffering.
Every manufacturing ton•n in England
trembles at the thought of the immediate
effects of such a war, while the master•
minds, who are aware of the enormous-ad

PT 11FIMBER POOR RE.9TING.
For the Bottingdon Journal.
Mn. Entrees:—The time was when Democra•
cy was a significant term ; a term by which, at
an early part of the history of our government,
those who were most favorable to the extension
of human liberty were designated. Whether
they were mistaken in regard to the quantity of
liberty we are prepared to enjoy, or nut, bas
ceased to be a question, since the successors
of the Democratic Party byname, have ceased
to defend human rights, and have stolen that
ancient and respected party name, and employ.
ed all its power to extend and perpetuate hu
man slavery. Witness the spread of it into
Texes and the Territories. The abolition of the
Misssuri Compromise, a Compromise which
had the approbation of patriots of all parties,
lovers of the peace and prosperity of their no-
tine soil ; who have let their names immortal•
iced on the pages of our country's history ; the
abolition of this time-honored compact, is the
work of Pierce, Douglas and their partizans,
and all for the purpose of extending a moral
plague spot, already too broad, over the free
territory of Kansas. Witness the barbarians of
Missouri, led on by Stringfellow, Atchison,
Jones and other ruffians, to the elections in
Kansas ; driving the citizens from the ballot.
boxes, taking possession of them, and electing
a Legislature of their own character; mind now
rend their laws, laws equally bloody as those
for which the stamp of infamy was fixed upon
the brow of Nero. Witness the civil war now
raging in that fair land. Its towns sacked and
burned, its virgin soil baptized is the blood of
irs sons and daughters, and all this for the es
tablishment of Democratic Slavery. And wit•
mess the conferecce held by cur Democratic
Ministers in Europe, where James Buchanan
was justly entitled to be Chairman, proving by
sophistry, that we should purchase Cuba ; and
the still more absurd and unjust proposition
that should Spain refuse to grant the demand
we should disposess her by force of arms. All
this is chum to secure Southern influence, and
sustain that cherished "peculiar institution." .
And in order to strengthen the power of less
than half n million of slave-drivers over the
whole Union, the dignity and freedom of speech
Is trampled upon in our Senate Chamber, by
cowardly ruffians, who, with bludgeons stain
its walls with the blood of Senators, and threat•
en with oaths and imprecations the lives of
those who wonld dare speak of slavory as nn
Pierce and Douglas have received their just
rewards. But not until their friends fond as•
slated in erecting the Cincinnati platform, iu
accordance with their odious governmen; did
James Buchanan receive his nomination. And
he no a willing tool, pledges himself to suss , iin
its principles. Thee chained to the car of the
harlot Slavery, lin has disgraced his birthplace,
dishonored the Keystone State, resigned his
freedom of will, concealed his federal blond,
and bound himself to the South in chains as
strong no thorn in which their African deities
are hid ; and the price is doubtles more than
ten cents tt day.
Fey a few years past, conservative men who
loved their country and its institutions, had
watched these proceedir.g with deep solicitude;
and have seen that the South are determined
on the extension of slavery, beyond its legiti
mate limits, at the expense of 'the dissolution
of our cherished Union, and civil war. They
have been attempting to bring our white labor
era into a elate of vassalage, nr to assimilate
them to the African bondman. At length our
peace loving citizens eriw, that further toleration
of such aggressions wit old be at the expense
of their own freedom, and a spontaneous beret
of generous indignation wan roused from the
Atlantic to the Pacific coast, and a National
Repu linens Cons cation was held on the 17th of
June, in Philadelphia, nod a ticket placed be
fure the people pledged to carry oat the grand
principles of freedom.
This Convention war an ont.gashing of the
true feeling of the North. It embraced Whigs
who were eager to strike for freedom. There
were democrats who could no longer sustain
, that so•called party, whose platform was the
I endorsed of their brothers' butchery. There
were Americans, seeing the blood of patriots
poured forth to sustain human rights is Kan.
Ras, resolved to battle in the great cause.
This is the material of which the Convention
was composed, presenting an assemblage of
moral and intellectual greatness of which any
country might be proud. With one heart, one
object nod one voice, they erected their plat
ferns, in whirls, the repudiated doctrine that "all
men have a right to life, liberty and the put ,
suit of happiness," which the elaveocracy say
was only a rhetorical 'lush of the pen, is again
Iresuscitated. They resolved that all old party
names should be tbrgetten, nod a united effort
made to place the government in safe hands.
Nothing but a universal gush of enthusiasm
prevailed; and the people have now candidates
upon whom they may rely, and whom it is be.
lieved will be triumphantly elected.
Truly, yours, Trees ANDRONICUS.
FRENIONT AT Tile Sourn.—The Richmond
(Va.) Whig says that Cul. Fremont is a man
of action whose pact career, though wanting
in the display or those qualities which hem.' I
the statesman, is lull of adventure, hardship
perils by land and sea hair breadth 'teapot and
all that. The white adds there 19 hardly I,
doubt he will run well in the North, and it ex.
presses its niisgivings that the election will be
thrown into the House of Repre,ematives. It
pictures Fremont no a man of courage, and says
that his nomination is a striking illustration of
the adroitness and sagacity with which all the
sehemeo of the Republicans have been con•
ducted. Savannah Georgian it nut able to con.
twin it, rage. It wonders why the earth about
Siivainuth (Freinent's birthplace) did not
quake wi , h indignathei at the unparalleled
outrage, be. The Southern journals general.
ly seem to fancy they must, as a matter of
C.V.., call Fremont and his party traitors,
conspirators and the like.

jority of the Germans in Newark and vicinity

From the Democratic Reflector, llamilton.
FREMONT IN NEW YORK.
We this week place at the head of this col.
own the nominee of the Philadelphia Conven
tion. held on Tuesday last. We have been im
pelled to take this course from a sense of duty.
Our attachment to the Democratic party has
been ardent and lifelong, and we reluctantly
withdraw from the support of its nominees.
The practice of unconditional submission to
the decrees of party caucuses we will allow has
been heretofore acted upon by all parties. But,
as. humble member of the Democratic party,
we deny that the organization of any party
constitutes any portion of its principles. As a
means of carrying out principles, party organi
zation and usage my prove beneficial. It is
equally true that they aro capable of being
perverted to the worst purposes. A stubborn
adherence to the party would in the end, prove
not only dangeroue, hut if adhered to under the
doctrines of "unconditional submission," would
disgrace any party capable of being formed.
To avoid the evils springing, from it, a party
would require a written Constitution, by which
its doctrines should be specified, and a rule
prescribed to which its measures should be re
stricted. If we bear in mind theunvarying ac
tivity of political men, who have selfish schemes
to accomplish, and compare their exertions
with the more quiet mass of the party, absorb
ed in their domestic avocations, we can readily
account for change of platforms and the unwor
tlty candidates for office.
The Democratic soil has been polluted for
years past by unworthy harvosta, and we are
one among the many who believe that the
time has come to sow the fields anew with bet
ter seeds. The germs, though they may he
choked awhile with tares, nevertheless will be
come vigorous, when enriched with the dead
bones of those who would sell their freedom
and birthright for a mess of pottage, and the
people and posterity will have cause to rejoice.
The doings of the recent Cincinnati Demo
cratie Convention has left us no alternative bet
to , endorse separately and in a body all the
enormities and outrages of the Pierce Adminis
tration, or threw off the shackles of party and:
adhere to principles, which to us are more ea•
ertcl than mere party tics. The latter course 1
we have determined to pursue. We totally re• l
nudity° the platform and the nominees of that
body; first because the platform is not Demo.
erotic; and secondly, because no one could
have been nominated at that Convention who
adhered to the time-lionered principles of the
founders of the Democracy.
That the notion of that Convention was
wholly influenced by men of questionable De
mocracy, may be inferred from the coarse ta
ken by that body with reference to the cont.-
ted seats from this State, and the readiness
with which the Soft delegates were made to eat
their own words and resolves, end misrepresent
the sentiments of the great mass of the party in
Its the fall of 1855, the Democratic State
Convention, passed the following resolutions
"Resolved, That while the Democracy of this
State will faithfully adhere to all the Cotnpro
raises of the Constitution, and maintain all the
reserved rights of the States, they deem this an
appropriate occasion to declare their fixed hos.
silty to the extension of Slavery into Free ter
Resolved, That we regard the organization
of hands of armed borderers, and their admis
sion into the Territory of Kansas, not as bona
fide settlers, but fun the forcible subversion of
the rights of its legal electors, not only a viola.
don of the peace of the Union nod the rights
of the community assailed, but as distinctly
subversive of the intent of Congress, an declared
in the bill organizing,....the said Territories to
have the people perfectly free to form and reg
ulate their own domestic institutions in their
own way, eubject only to the Constitution of
the Visited Stafes; and that all power of the
Federal and Territorial governments should be
exerted to redress those outrages and vindicate
the rights of the people thereof.
No one could have supposed that such a
mighty change wits going on in the Empire
State, that only one year later it would be tie-'
cessary to repudiate the above wholesome and,
we believe, Democratic resolves, its order that
the delegates of the regular Democracy of the
State could be admitted into a Democaatic Na.
tional Convention. Yet such is the fact. The
very men who were foremost in advocating the
adoption of the above resolutions, cringed to
the "power behind the throne," and, like the
whipped spaniel, obeyed their masters, and
received their reward by being declared bol.
tern after all. Stich, as it should he, generally
the fate of traitors.
We have long striven to believe that the
clouds which Ilene like a pall over the Demo
critic party, would be driven away, and jus
tice would predominate; but recent develupe•
'nests have blasted oar last hope. Civil war,
the result of the basest iniquities, hits desecra
ted our soil. The strong arm of the President
has upheld and sustained the aggressions of
the Slave Power and winked at base attempts
to overthrow the temple of Freedom. To this
end, but we are invited to throw up our capsfor
Buchan., whose early history we remem.
her to have been identified with the enemies
of the Democratic party and its then honored
principles. To this repast we decline to sit
down. We neither like the epicures, nor the
Manner it is served up.
When the Fugitive Slave bill was passed,
we thought, as far as the South was concerned
we should have peace. But hardly had the
public mind become quiet, when that time•
honored compact—the MiseouriCompronsise—
was repealed. The South took our coat
—see gave them our cloak also-e-and now they
would strip us nuked. We have fulfilled the
Scripture ; and now forbearance has ceased to
be a virtue.
!Fe must resist !We must roll buck the
mrtelsierin of tyminy oppression, or be swat
lowed in its seedling vortex. When the pistol
and bowie Inure are made qualifications of a
voter—when. for exercising the liberty of
speech, our Free State Senators are assaulted
and beaten without mercy for the Southern
cowards —when our brothers, for daring
to love the principles fur which our forefathers
bled. are shot down like dogs, or compelled to
fly for their lives—when the Press must sanc

of lawless vilany are sanctioned by Executive
authority, is it not time that every freeman
should lot his voice and arms in defense of lib

long be taught to know it. There bust a place
where the liberty of the Press is tolerated, and
when they assail our rights we oast defiance in

and right, and under this banner we will fight
our oppressors. To subserve this end, we

Cul. Fremont's character and position canvas.
sod pretty freely for the last six months, we
solemnly aver that we have never, up to this
hour, heard any friend proclaim him a Roman
Catholic or raise any question whatever con
corning his religious faith. On the othor band
hie adversaries have been constantly setting
afloat this story of his being n Catholic,. and,
when refuted and silenced, they would let it
rest for a week or two and then start it again.
Col. Fremont was baptized, reared, and con
firmed in the Protestant Episcopal Church, to
whirls ho has ever adhered ; and we challenge
the Express to prove that "his friends are
" on both sides of the fence, - and "are playing
" for him a double part" on this subject. If
such "friends" are known to the Express, as its
article necessarily implies, that paper can name
them, as we now dare it to do. We object en•
tiroly to any inquiry into the religious faith of
a candidate fur office ; we bold it at war with
that Constitution which the Union savers affect
so to revere ,• wo do not know, and never sought
to know, what is Mr. Bachanan's or Mr. Don.
elson's faith; and, though we happen to know
that Mr. Fillmore is a Unitarian, and have an
impression that Mr. Breckenridge attends the
Presbyterian Church, if any, we consider all
this entirely a matter between these gentlemen
and their Matter, and sincerely pity the narrow
bigotry of the man who would vote for or a•
gainst either of them on grounds of religious
faith. But this mean and false pretence, that
Cul. Fremont is a Romanist, after the truth has
been repeatedly sided, is deserving of the ae•
vorest rebuke. A similar falsehood, persisted
in on grounds equally frivolous, was the means
of depriving Gen. Scott in 1852 of many votes.
We shall take care that it dose not prove equal
ly potent against Col. Fremont.
Southern Democrats Bolting from Buch
The nomination of Buchanan is received
with sadness and humiliation. by the South.

Democratic paper, says it must endorse the

fallen hopes. It says while they support him
they must check their expressions of chagrin
and school their lips to reluctant applause.
The Columbia (S. C.) Thetis, Democratic,
openly repudiates the nominee. It says:
"Mr Buchanan 's antecedent's are such
that cannot give him our support, nor do we

from the Whig party, a tariff man, and a Fed.

whole of his history, he is not an advocate of
State rights, and we doubt not he will go for

Fremont as a Legislator.
Cul. Fremont sat in the U. 8. Senate du
ring a portion of one session. Yet, says the
Boston Atlas, during that short time, by his
excellent judgment and indomitable persist
acre, he urged through the Senate, against
the most formidable opposition, a law for wor
king the gold mines, which settled one of the
most difficult practical questions in the world,
and settletlit for the benefit of free labor.—
Congress, urged by powerful speculators, both
iu and out of California, was much inclined to
manage the minas no the public domain after
the old Spanish fashion, farming them out so
as to deprive a largo revenue to the goy...
mem, and leaving the laborers to becotne el.
thee virtual or actual slaves.
Colonel Fretnont's bill prevented all this by
a minute subdivision of the gold Louring terri•
tory, and granting permits to work them to ac•
foal miners on easy conditions. When Col.
Fremont was advoeutmg his Lill before the
Senate, be thus briefly characterised its scope,
showing the true path of his Dem..oraey:—
"The principle; of th is bill, as I have already
slated them, are to exclude all idea of making
a National revenue out of those mines—to pre
vent the possibility of monopolies by moneyed
capitalists—and to give to natural capital, that
is to say, to labor and industry, a fair chance
to work, and the secure enjoyment of what
