HUNTINGDON. Aug. 24, 1856.
Minssit Ent-oas t --Will you please publish
the 1 . -..iwing letter from the idon. Chauncey
Slimier, of New York. I think a careful peru
sal of what is written therein will at least bring
smelly of our friends to meditate thoughtfully
beli,re they con cast their votes for any man for
President of the United States, who asks their
suffrages and who does not distinctly define his
position agitinst the horrors of the Slave pow
cr. Thi.+ block cloud of oppression, which is
sweeping:away nll .r free institutions; the free
press, free speech. the ballot•box, and religious
liberty, are all prostrated before the march of
this devastating curse, and should a man be
elected to begin the ruin where the present ad
ministration has left off, in four years more,
don't he surprised to see your ministers of the
Gospel torn from their pulpits in the Free
States, as the Slave power did attempt to do iu
Virginia, not long since, and is now doing in
Missouri and Kansas. I don't suppose that
these outrages will always be confined to the
Methodist Episcopal Church and her ministers;
but may not all the Protestant Churches expect
the same fate, if it dares to preach against this
I know that all Mr. Shaffer says upon the
-subject of admitting the Papists into the Con.
vention over the Protestant delegation at Phila.,
to be true. I there said to Gov. Johnston, Mr.
Riddle and other gentlemen of the Convention
that it ceased to be an Anferipan Convention.
Nr. Shaffer was a delegate in the NewVOrk
Convention, in June last, and where every
Northern State was represented, and acting
upon the solemn obligation which every Amer
ican understands, and there nominated .Col. J.
Charles Fremont, and on the very grounds that
he wen in heart and practice a Protestant, and
that we all knew him to be so. Mr. Shaffer is
a member of the Methodist Church in good
standing. awl no mau in New York occupies a
more elevated position :Is a man of talent and
Christian gentleman. Yours truly,
JOHN WILLIA NISON.
SA RAT. A SPIIINGH, Aug. 14, 1856.
U. Posy, Dsq.—My Dear Sir : I have just
received, .by way of New York City, your note
of the 9th inst., inelosing the following extract
from the Ithaca Citien, to wit:
"Comixo Baeg.."—Clutuncev Shaffer, who
was one of the most prominent bolters from the
Philadelphia American Convention, nod who
lots been stumping the river countics in this
Stele at the Fremont meetings, has returned
to.hearty support of Fillmore and Donelson.—
Mr. Sheffer is an eloquent speaker, and was
District Attorney in New York City. Ife be

Hence the leading Silver•G ray : , •••••.•-,papers of
, the North (including the sr )i,rk Express)
claim Mr. Fillmore as the regular Whig notni•
nee for the Presidency, while the South claim
him as the champion of Southern rights, (mea
ning the extension of human Slavery by the
action of the General Government,) while Mr.
iFitheore, to justify' the claims tho South, in of
feet says "Elect me, or the South, that loves
-me se well. shall not remain in the Union."
As an American, I am not Udall,' by the no
tion of that Convention; rather, let :no say, I'
cannot submit to be bound by its action, any
more than can toy brethren of Massachusetts,
of C - ..fricctient, and of every New England
Slut . The American party of Massachiwits,l
in solemn council assembled, has - deelneed for
Mr Fremont, and nominated electors favorable
to his election ; and so has the State of Can-1
necticut, and so will all New England do, (for
New England has a history,) and so will the
American party of this State act , excepting al.
ways a portion of the Silver-Gray portion of
that party. The latter portion will steed by
Mr. Fillmore, notwithstanding, he "has adopted
the leading principles of that platform,' the
seventh section of which commits the American
party to Slavery extension under the guise of
squatter sovereignty; because this " , portion of a
portion" cualc into the order wife the design
of retrieving the fallen fortunes of of Mr, Fill
more, as is proved by the attempted ostracism
of the liberal minded mon of the Order, sad by
the threats preceding and accompanying the
Philadelphia Convention, that in the event of
George Law's recei ring the nomination for the
Presidency, they, with the Whig, party proper,
would nominate an out-and-out American
Whig, (meaning Mr. Fillmore, I presume), and
also by letters now in existence, and which, I
hope, will yet bo published.
I have not "returned to the hearty support of
Fillmore and Donelson," nor will Ido any act
or thing tending to sanction the outrages of
Pro-Slavery, Nullification Border Kuala., who
in addition to their outrages in Missouri and
Kansas, of thainselves sufficient to turn the
cheek of durkeess pale, have, from 1852 until
now, wrested the high powers of the nation
from their legitimate purpose to the strengthen
ing of the Slave Oligarchy.
There are other objections to my supporting
Mr. Fillmore, founded upon the fact stated by
the Ci fixers, that I belong to the Methodist
The church owes Slavery no particular good-
will, for Slavery has rent that church in twain ;
has imprisoned women fur teaching the slave
to read the Bible, and has sought in every way
to destroy that church, as being the oppouent
of Slavery most to be feared. Let facts speak.
Last winter a minister oldie Methodist Church
in Missouri, was arrested while in the pulpit by
a gang of men (who, if they live, will probably
vote fur Mr. Fillmore), who 'wantonly and false
ly charged hituswith horse.stealing ; and, with
out allowing him time to put on his overcoat,
mounted him on a horse, drove him some se
venteen miles (the weather being intensely
cold), threw him into a cheerless room, without

Another instance: In Kansas a Methodist

Another instance : Very recently, a Meths.
dist minister in Missouri, while preaching, was

there(); while an old Methodist layman for
the crime of expostulation against such con
duct, was shot ; and it is a notorious fact, nod
one which wilruoradmit of controversy, that a
minister of my church cannot preach the Gos.
pal in the Stale of Missouri, or the Territory
of Kansas, but at the peril of his life! and yet
I find no reproof of these outrages either• in
the Philadelphia platform or in any of tho
speeches Of Mr. Fillmore.
As to having examined "all the evidence"
in relation to Aft. Fremont's religious creed, I
have to say that I have examined all the evi•
deice including Aldertitan Fultner's statement,
and exhausted the means. of iniormittion within
my reach, and have arrived at the following
Ist. That Mr. Fremont's father was
French Hugonot, and his mother an American
2d. That Col. Fremont was born a Protes
tant, baptized a Protestant, married Protes
tam lady, had his children baptized by,
Protestant clergyman, educates them in the
Protestant faith, while he is a Protestant in
practice in all the relations of life.
I admit that he Was taart.;,l raiholic

months of that time. lie was on the
Ocean, or the Isthmus of Darien, or cm the
stcniaer Circe to Law, from Aspinwall to New
lurk City, at the time listed by Fulmer.
I should add that upon C it.-Frement's arri
val in Now York City he sailed to Europe
without visiting Washington at all, and that he
rein:tined m Europe more than a year.
I should further add, that the conviction in
my Mind that Aldertnan Fulmer has here false
wduess against his neighbor is strengthened by
the contradictory statements that I atn credibly
informed he has made concerning this preten
ded conversation, and by the t'urther fact that
among his immediate neighbors his statement
is not Lelieved.
?But if I should refuse to vote for Mr. Fre
mont because of his being to Homan Catholic,
I could not vote for Mr. Fillmore, and for the
reason that the Convention which nominated
Mr. Fillmore war controlled by Ronan Catt,
lies as well as by Slavery Propagandists. This
is the proof:
Two sets of delegates appeared from the.
State of Louisiana—one Protestant, and the
other Roman Catholic—both demanding ad
mission. The Cowan Catholic delegation wan
received, and the Prote4ant delegation was re•
The reason, I understand, assigned for this
singular admission and rejection was, that •the
Homan Catholic delegation did not acknowl
ede:e the temporal supremacy of the Pope ; but
did the Protestant dehvation aelcuowledge the
temporal supremacy ofihe Pope'?
There are other objections to my supporting
Mr. Fillmore, and as an American, and a man
who, at the commencement' of his political life,
resolutely set his face against the further ag
gressiuns of the Slave Power, I cannot he in
duced by atty special pleadin , , or any 'Roor•
backs' that may be hatche'd in Site hot-bed of
ulitical zeal, to vote the any other man for
President than Col. Fremont, inasmuch as I
see no other way of putting an end to the terri
ble ag gression ' s of the Slave Powur.
I beliure upon the election or defeat of Cul.
