At a meeting et the members of the Republi

on 12th August 1856, in pursuance of the puk

of the American County Convention of the pre
vious day, and to decide whether the course of
that Convention is such as to eatitle it to re
ceive the support of the friends of Fremont and
Free Kansas, of this county, at the October
election, the following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted:

NO MONEY FOR MURDERING FREE
IN KANSAS. 1
Our readers are aware that the President
through his Secretary of War, Jell. Davis,
demanded of Congress, the sum of four
teen millions of dollars, for the support of
the army, for the present year. The bill
passed the Senate as required, and was sent
to the House of Representatives, where it
also passed by a large majority ; but the
free soilers and other friends of freedom in
the House, attached a section to the bill,
providing that no part of the $14,000,000
should be applied in destroying the people
of Kansas or driving the free state settlers
from that Territory, by any part of the ar
med force of the United States. The bill
thus amended was sent back to the Senate,
where the section against destroying the
free settlers of Kansas was struck out, and
the bill again sent to the house. This
was on the 18th of August, the day fixed
for the adjournment of Congress, sometime
before by a joint resolution of both houses.
Before the House had time to restore the
amendment against employing the troops
in murdering the free state settlers in Kan.
sas, the hour fixed for adjournment arrived,
the speaker's hammer fell and the House
stood adjourned. On the 19th, Pierce. is
sued his Proclamation calling back the two
houses, to hold a special session on the 22d.
The case then stood thus : Both H"ttses
agreed to pass the bill for the 11.1,000,000
for the army, but th.- Representatives
would not agree that any part of the mon
ey shall be spent in driving the free set-
tlers from Kansas. Whereupon Pierce,
Jeff. Davie, Douglas, Fihnore, Buchanan,
and the Senate, unite in a general lamen
tation ; the South Americans and Locofo•
cos, join in the wailing.
Pierce acts as chief mourner, and deli,
era a special message to the two houses of
Con"- which hr the' -thie
.ongress, in which ne says that nothing
so bad as this has happened since the foun•
dation of the Government. That he will
have nothing to do with the $14,000,000,
'which the House offers him for the sup
prt of the army, unless he can eve as
touch as he pleases of it to assist the Mr
der Ruffians of Missouri in robbing, mur
dering and driving the free state settlers
from Kansas, fhat unless he can have
money to protect the house-burners, horse
thieves, and violators of the wives and
Filmore was no sooner elevated to the
Presidency, by the death of good old Tay
lor, than he betrayed and deserted the peo
ple who had elected him, joined himself
to the slave power, and has ever since re
mained the friend and ally of slavery.—
This silly moo believed that slavery was
more powerful than freedom, mid set him
self ap for the Presidency. Every one
sees the late which awaits hint. Ills fol
lowers here are at his heels and in his
tracks—the same end awaits them, Ver
ily gentlemen, honesty is the hest policy.
