_...._. ``. o[iticaL sHA:evEn ON FRFMONT AND FILL- MORE. 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.

I :,m. 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 Church. 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 lire, there left him to die, and (Isere di,d I My informant is a Bishop of the Methodist Church, and spoke of his own knowledge. Another instance : The Rev. Mr. Wiley, and about thirty other ministers of the Methodist Church have been assaulted in their churches and driven from place to place, like beasts of prey, their lives being every day in imminent peril Another instance: In Kansas a Methodist minister wrs whipped, tarred and feathered, tied to a log and set afloat on the Missouri river. Another instance : Very recently, a Meths. dist minister in Missouri, while preaching, was dragged from his pulpit and tarred and fca• 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 conclusions : Ist. That Mr. Fremont's father was French Hugonot, and his mother an American Protestant lady. 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 clergyman, unler circuinAtee. . Lir to himself, Roil with which the publ - , ~beady eoretinted. :id. I conclude tl,at statement is altogetle ' '•••• was nut in IVashil,_ , •:: at ••,: : ,•,. says he conversed with him, our s• 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• jected.l 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. Fremont will depend the question, whether or not the black column of Slavery will. be pushed to the Pacific Ocean; whether or not the Afri can slave-trade, the sum of all wickedness, will be revived ; and whether or tint practical Sla very shall be forced into id • • under decisions of Federal Jul,. • las Mr. Fillmore sought to :ippoint souse of his Judges ; , • . , her this country shall • . , i,eernment fur the Slave Oligarch, ; , • 1. or nut we shell recover our le. . •.•i.si honor, and go co in peaceful p elimax ahem. greatness; or v i, ,e r ,‘• he destroyed by the aggressive!ystein of the Slave Power, Very truly yours, CHAUNCEY SUA EFER. Political Changes. A newspaper published at Plymouth, Indi ana, called the Banner, has hauled dawn the Buchanan flag and run up that of Fremont:— A German domestic paper, called the "Anzei ger den Nordens,." which has all along suppor ted the Plural administration, has declared a ping. the Buchanan ticket, and conic out in support of the Philadelphia Republican need nations andplatform, placing the names of Fremont and Dayton at the, head of its col umns. The lion. Joseph Knox, of of Illinois, a Pierce elector in 1852, and always a Demo. erat, addressed a Fremont meeting ut Buell In land lately, and came out boldly in favor of a Bepublicun ticket. A friend in Massachusetts who knew him, doubted the truth of this state. meta wro to to -him propounding an inquiry on the subject; whereupon he responded In a lettcr which is published, declarinq himself en thusiastically for Fremont. The Northwestern Democrat, published iu Minnesota. and hereto. fore a supporter of the Pierce administration, hue hoisted' 1 -ht Fremont and Dayton flag;— The Leesville Anzeiger, a German paper pub• lished in Kentucky, n,.; hauled down the Buell. anan flag. Judge Stuart, d'promittc't and in. tluential Democrat of Mansfield, Ohio, has do. (dared for Fremont and Dayton. filar To render M. Fillmore more palatable to Northern voters, it has been strenuously rep. resented in his behalf that he signed the fugi tive slamlaw only under the advice and urgent solicitation. of his Cabinet, nod particularly that of Mr. Crittenden, his Attorney General, against his own wishes. Mr. Crittenden has written, a letter putting the clapper on his elec tioneering representation. Lle says t There was no urgency or solicitation to Mr. Filhuore to sign the bill that I know of, I certainly used none, sordid I ever suppose that any was necessary. Mr. Filhnore, I have no doubt, signed the bill freely, and in obedience only to his awn convictions and sense of duty. SW-Rumor says that, thorn Id ono Buchan. au men in Compton, Rhode Wand. £" There will be but two portico in Ohio— Buchanan and slavery on one side, and Fre mont and Freedom on the other. The Cleave land Herald says the entire Fillmore ticket is now out of the field. war An intelligent correspondent at Mere. dith Bridg, N. 11., thinks that no Fillmore ticket will be started in that State, and that the Buchanan men will let the election go by default. The Meadville (Csawf,d co.) Spirit of the Age, an independent paper, has also come out for Fremont and Dayton. The editor has heretofore been a Democrat.
