Wednesday Morning, No.. 20,1850.
Such is the mocking, sneering term ap
plied by the Pro-Slavery, Border•Rufian
Press, both North and Souih, to suffering,
chain-bound, ravished Kansas. They tell
us the cry was got up by "Black Republi
cans" to carry the Presidential election !
They assert in the face of fact, that Kan
sas outrages are "bugbears" manufactured
to order and in "quantities to suit the oc
casino." Poor, miserable, naked hypoc
risy! /lave not these damning outrages,
been proven to have been committed by
the very men who uphold them as right—
by the evidence of impartial witnesses—
and by a Congressional Committee. And
yet, with all this overwhelming proof—
with the very death groans of men, women
and innocent children striking on the ear,
and the smoke and flames of their burning
dwellings arising before their very eyes,
there are men (!) to be found, who can
calmly look on, and in a mocking, brutal
manner, cry ' , Bleeding Kansas." '
We have several times been shown let.
te rs from persons in Kansas to their friends
In thil.county, corroborating all the state
mentsispde relative to the shocking con
dition of that territory, but refrained from
makiiiipch letters public, from fear of
bringing the ire of border ruffians upon
the writers, by such accounts coming to
their ears. But for the purpose of proving
the fact we publish a short paragraph of a
letter received on Saturday the 15th inst.,
from a brother now in Kansas :
—, November 1, 1856.
--It is the richest and most pre.
ductive soil I have ever seen, and the ve
ry spot of all God's beautiful earth that I
would select as a freeman's home. And
yet, boasting as we do of living in "the
land of the free," and under a free govern
ment, which recognize. and Secures free
dom of thought, word and action—what
is a freeman's privilege in Kansas? Why
sim~l the onl~ ririlege we have, is of
simply says that slavery does not or should
not exist in Kansas, he is a doomed man,
and the terrible "ball and chain" his por
tion. Where I live, is the most quiet part
-of the territory, end yet even here is no
security. Some two weeks ago, having
occasion to go to Doitiphan, it happened
that in conversing there with several men
used treasonable language; that means
I declared my intention of doing all in my
power to prevent Kansas becoming a slave
state; this was sufficient. Five days after
a company of some seventy border ruffians
were encamped near and fearing they .
might pay me a visit, I secreted myself.
and remained hid three days. These Mis
sourians are not unlike wolves : too cow
ardly to attaok a man evenly, they prowl
about in gangs, and overcome by numbers.
My precaution was well-timed, as they
did make a move to capture me but mista
king the "claim" carried off to their camp
my nearestneighbor, an excellent old Nor- r
wegian. They afterwards released him, 1
finding him to be the wrong man. Ido
not fear them ; and shall defend myself as
becomes a Pennsylvanian. &c., &c.
"Bleeding Kansas!" Shame on the
heartless, soul-leas wretch, who can find no
other balm for a crushed and bleeding
country than mockery ; cursed be the
inhuman heart that can mock at the suffer
ings and sneer at the bloody wounds of a
helpless territory. The justice of an 'Om
nipotent God will not slumber forever, and
the outstretched arm of. Divine wrath will
yet be seen and felt. The soul-less mon
sters who put out the eyes of human rea
son by their cry of t'peace, peace ; when
there is no peace," shall yet reap the whirl
wind of wrath of an insulted God and it
crushed and ruined country.
A Few Facts.
We regard the large vote given to Fre
mont in New England as the very best evi
mince of the grandeur and magnitude of
the Republican movement In New Eng
land, New York and the enlightened Wes
tern States, Fremont has received large ,
majorities, and if we come down to Penn.
Sylvania we will find the most enlightened
portions of our State have gone for Fre
mont, and the dark regions and the besot
ted cities have given majorities for Bucha
nan. There is a meaning in this, which it
would be well for the Democracy to un
derstand. We want but MOOT, and the
blackness of despotism will disappear for
ever. Let the people of Pennsylvania but
comprehend the diabolical designs of the
slave power, and they will rise up sad re
buke it as they did in Massachusetts, in
New York, in Maine, in Vermont, in
Ohio, in Michigan ! The Sbamocracy ono
ceeded in pulling Wan and Coma over
the eyes of their deluded followers here
because of their ignorance, but when they
see clearly the real purposes of the Black
Power, the) will crash the tyrants into the
dust. When Pennsylvania becomes as
enlightened as Matinchusette the reign of
despotism it over.
We publish in this number a letter, or
rather as we should call it, a complaint
from one of the Straight-Fillinoritcs. The
facts.given by our correspondent as to the
votes of this State cannot be denied, fur
they are supported by figures. Undoubt
edly if the Straights had acted like honest
and sensible men, Buchanan would not
have been elected, snit the three candidates
must have all gone into the house, on equal
terms. Buchanan certainly owns his elec
tion to the Straights of Pennsylvania,
But we have all along believed and yet be
lieve that Sanderson of Philadelphia, and
some of the other leaders of the. Straights
were in immediate combination and con
cert with Fillmore himself, who has been
all the while the mere cat's paw and im
plement of Buchanan ; though had Fil
more been able to perceive beforehand the
issues of the election in the several States,
we opine that he would have deserted Bu.
chanan and instructed Sanderson and his
other tools in Pennsylvania to go heartily
into the Union Ticket. Had this been
done. Buchanan would have been beaten
in this State and in the Electoral College.
The election must have gone to the House
and no one can tell what might have hap
pened there. If gratitude forms any par
of Buchanan's nature, he would confer sig
nal favors on the Pennsylvania Straights.
No doubt he has made their leaders large
promises ; but to these promises the old
adage of pie -crusts, may well be applied.
The poor rank and file of the Straights,
are left to shift for themselves, without
being made acquainted with the price for
which they have been sold.
The Presbyterian quell on the Side of
In 1787, the Synod of New York end
Philadelphia, then the highest body in the
Presbyterian Church, recommended, “in
the warmest terms, to every member of
their body, and to all the churches and fa
milies under their care, to do everthing in
their power, consistent with the rights of
civil society, to promote the .lbolition of
Slavery, and the instruction of negroes,
whether bond or free."
Agrin, in 1818, the General Assembly
took unanimous action on the merits of the
Slavery question ; and a resolution offered,
that any person selling a Slave who should
be a member of the church, should be de
barred from the communion of the church,
a long report was presented, written by
Vh late
t?'eeenneem. ble r'r n l d n c d jtO
n, rem which
we extract the following conclusioas :
"From this view of the consequences result.'
ing front the practice into which Christian peo
ple have most inconsistently fallen, of enslaving
a portion of their brethren of mankind—for
God bath made of ono blood all nations of men
to dwell on the earth—it is manifestly the duty
of all Christians whc enjoy:the light of the pres•
ent day, whets the inconsistency of Slavery,
both with the dictates of humanity and religion
has been demonstrated, to use their honest,
earnest and unwearied endeavors to correct the
errors of former times, and as speedily as tos.
Bible to alter, this blot on our holy religion,
and to obtain the complete abolition of Slavery
throughout Christendom, and, if possible, thro%
out the world.
"We rejoice that the church to which we be.
long commenced as early as others the good
work of endeavoring to pet an end to Slavery.
and that in the same work many of its mem•
bers have ever since been, and now are, among
the most active, vigorous and efficient Itiborera."
This report was unanimously adopted,
has never since been rescinded, and will
remains us the recorded opinion of the Gen
eral Assembly of the Presbyterian Church
on the Slavery question,
Gov. Geary the United States army,
and the Missiouri militia have succeeded
at length it appears, in establishing ' , or- I
der in Warsaw," after a fashion, by the
law and order expednnent. Everything
on behalf of Kansas as a slave State works
beautifully. The free State colonists
have been, at a great extent, destroyed, or ,
starved out; and under the benign dispen I
sation of Mr. Pierce, his man Geary his
Missouri code. his dragoons and the bor
der volunteers; another Missouri pro•sla
very Legislature has been elected, with
Gen. Whitfield returned es their delegate
to Congress. The next step will be a
State Convention for Kansas framed by
Missouri delegates under the protection of
the United States troops ; and the next, a
bill by the next Congress for the admission
into the Union of Kansas as a slave State
by force of arms. The whole issue for
the fourth of November now turns upon
the man who is to sign or veto the bill.—
AU the rest is settled—fixed as fate.
Intelligent Vetere.
In 18 counties of Southern Illinois, for
ming a large part of what is familiarly
known as "Egypt"— the land of darkness
—there are 11,186 males over 21 years of
age who can neither read nor write. These
counties give Buchanan over 10,000
majority. Of coutse. The ignorant and
degraded are jolt the men to be made tools
of by suoh demagogues as Douglas. It
seems to us but natural and right that such
tellows should vote the Democratic ticket.
A party that thrives on passion and preju
dice ought to succeed best where the
people are the most ignorant, Take up
tha census of any State, and find any coun
ty in which there are large numbers of
adults who can neither read or write, thee
turn to the election returns, and you will
see in that county a large majority for Bu
chanan. The majority, too, will be found
prep:aria:tad to the sum total of such yotere.
The Banner County.
It was often asserted during the Presi
dential contest that in certain counties in
Pennsylvania and New York the Repub
lican party would almost entirely absorb
all other parties. This was stoutly dent
ed by the Buchanan and Fillmore men.—
The election returns show that the absorp
tion of the old Democratic party is great
er than anticipated by the most zealous
Fremont man. In Wilmot's district, com
posed of the counties of Bradford, 'flogs
and Susquehanna, heretofore strongly de
mocratic, Fremont has a majority of up
wards of 9,000 ! Crawford county, once
Democratic by 1,000, gives Fremont 2,000
majority. In some other of the western
counties in this State, the change is equal
ly as great. In some counties in New
York the revolution in politics is even
greater than in Pennsylvania. Witness
the following :
Correspondence of the Even ing Journal.
COOLIZNSBORG, Nov. 10, 1856.
We have returns from 25 of the 28 towns or
glorious old St. Lawrence county, and the re•
suit is as follows :
Fremont, 9,649 Buchanan, 1,170
Fillmore, 1,483
Fremont ever Buchanan, 7,769 ; over Fil.
more, 0,146: over both, 6,479. The two towns
to hear from have about 230 votes. They will
increase Fremoat's majority 100. You see we
are the banner county of the State. The town
of Stoclsholm of this county, is the banner town
of the banner county; . and is also the banner
town of the State, we opine. Her vote in : Fre
mont, 779 ; Buchanan, 24 ; Fillmore, 24. If
not, on the next occasion we will vote all Re
publican. John Van Buren's mission here
was of great value to tie.
The tune has manifestly arrived when .
the present mode of electing the Chief
Magistrate of the Union should be so chan
ged as to secure a more fair and explicit
expression of the public sentiment. To this
end the Constitution should be amended
so as to give the election directly to the
people, and then the majority would rule,
u they should do. Under the present sys
tem a minority may elect, as is seen in the
recent election, in which the States cast
ing their votes against Mr. Buchanan gave
probably not less than several hundred
thousand majority for the majority for the
other candidates, and yet by the system
of choosing by Slates Mr. Buchanan is
made President.
Each State has, in the electoral colleges,
one vote for every Representative and
Senator in Congress, by which method
the lesser States cast as many Senatorial
• ' ' 11:An wa reo fur
example, with but one Representative, has
2 Senatorial votes, whilst New York, with
33 Representatives, has but two Senatorial
votes, the same as Delaware, The unfair
ness of this system is too obvious to re
quire elucidation. Other good reasons
might be given in favor of popular suf
frage—whereby a candidate receiving the
highest number of votes should be elected
—but we shall let these suffice for the
present and will only add that we hope
Congress may take action on this subject
at an early day, and that State Legislatures
will sustain, by resolves, such of the Na
tional Senators and Representatives as may
move in the matter.
Every man of sense and information in
the civilized world will say the Common
wealth of Massachusetts is the most per
fect specimen of Republican civilization.
Massachusetts comes tolerably near reali
zing the dreams and hopes of John Milton,
Algernon Sidney and Thomas Jefferson.
Massachusetts, is, by universal consent,
absolutely unequalled for her universal in
telligence, theoretical and active Democ
racy and general virtue. Massachusetts
furnishes a principal part of the brains,
books, teachers, poets, historians, orators,
savans, inventors, thinkers, preachers,'
philanthropists, missionaries, great minds,
and great men of this whole country. The
abuse of Massachusetts by such fellows as
Brooks, (Preston S.) Forney & Co., is like
the yelping of flute curs at the bright stars.
She was loved by Edmund Burke, in ear
lier days, and she is admired and revered
by e-ery good and true man now. Mas
sachusetts is so overwhelmingly Republi
can, that Buchanan is hardly a spot on the
sun's face. It looks as if Charles Sumner
will be unanimously re-elected to that seat
to Ma Senate which he fills so splendidly
and virtuously.
A Free Soil Stratum.
The Northern tier of counties to Penn
sylvania all gave majorities for the Union
ticket. Erie gives 2572, Warren 850,'
M'Kean 298, Tioga 8152, Bradford 4655,
Susquehanna 1323, Wayne 89, and Potter
601. Here is an aggregate of 13,535 ma
jority against Buchanan in this range of
counties. Taking in Crawford county,
which really formed part of what was for
merly the Connecticut Reserve, the aggre
gate would be 15,508. The southern tier
of counties in New York State, go for Fre
mont in the same style as our northern tiers
including a majority for every county from
the Causkill to Lake Erie.
my The vote for Preeident at the Five
Points, New York, stood :
Buchanan, 510
Fremont, 17
There is now no doubt of the election
of James Buchanan to the Presidency.
The result" is a sore disappointment to the
friends of freedom; but it'should not and
will not dishearten them. To them it is
not a defeat, but a v:ctory, for it gives as
surance of an ultimate triumph which is
only postponed. They have condemned
the iniquities of the Blave.Democracy by
heavy majorities in all but three of the
Northern States, and have only failed of
executing the sentence, by the interposi
tion of a third party. The election of Bu
chanan could never have been accomplish
ed by his own adherents. He owes his
success to Fillmoreism in Pennsylvania.
Look at the result in Illinois, the home
of Douglas ! Look at the result in Michi
gas, the home of Cass !—at the result in
New Hampshire, the home of Pierce !—at
the result in New York, the home of Fill.
more! Ihems are among the substantial
triumpt of the Republicans—an earnest
of what is in store in the future, for all the
enemies of freedom !
Never was a contest more gallantly
fought, ngainst stronger odds. Republican
ism is still but an infant Hercules; scarce
ly two years of age. Another four years
and in the maturity of vigorous manhood,
it will cleanse the Aegean stables, as did
its prototype, with scarcely an effort.
In the vote of Massachusetts, of Maine
and New York, and of all the New Eng
land States representing the extreme Eas
tern section of the confederacy; in the vote
of lowa, Illinois and Wisconsin on the
West, and of Ohio and Michigan in the
great central region, the condemnation of
more than one half of the nation, is record.
ed against the sectional policy of the Slave
Democracy. Nothing but concealment
and evasion of the true issue by the Buch
anan leaders in the North and the Fillmore
diversion to Pennsylvania and Indiana pre
vented that condemnation from being uni
vernal and final. More than half of the
votes cost for Mr. Buchanan in the North
ern States were given in the belief that he
would reverse the policy of Mr. Pierce,
and that Kansas would bit admitted into
the Union os a free State. The future
will show how utterly false are such hopes
—and then will come the triumph of truth
and freedom ! Those who have been de
now, will not again listen to the
voice of the tempter.
The Republican party has entered upon
a glorious career, whose first repulse has
pale netitd it for future triumnha It is
based tiptop indestruttible ,
Freedom, 'Justice and Trtah. it is sup
ported by,the intelligence, the religion and
the true cliservative patriotlain of the land.
It is fortified by the teachings of the pa
triots who achieved our National Indepen
dence and framed our Constitution, it has
attained a more rapid, and more vigorous
growth than any former party since the
organizatipn of the government, and com
bines within i:self more-substantial and en
during elements of strength than any po
litical coObination since the day when
Patrick Henry proclaimed the immortal
sentimen, which would now be treason in
Virginia, 'Give me Liberty or give me
Death !' It is not only the party of Free
dom, but of Progress ; and until its object
is accomplished, its permanency is as well
assured as the imperishability of the prin
ciples upon which it is based.
Its nominal defeat in the contest just
closed, will, as we have said at the outset,
we an ultimate victory. Even James
Buchanan subservient and truckling as he
has always been, dares not entirely disre
gard the thunder toned protest of an over
whelming majority of the Northern peo
ple. The Fillmore faction has by its own
act been crushed by the pillars of political
Dagon, which with suicidal hand it has
pulled down upon its own head, Fillmore
is dead, dead—and buried in an ignomini
ous grave, beyond the hope of resurrection.
Thus every obstacle to the unobstructcd
triumph of Republicanism in the next na
! tional contest is removed. Third partyism
has died the usual death of the traitor and
the spy, riddled with the bullets of the
contending armies of Slavery and Freedom.
The two remain masters of the field—the
one of the North, the other of the South.
Let Republicans, therefore, rejoice at the
noble results they have achieved, rather
than mourn over those they have failed to
accomplish. In future contests, they will
have but one enemy—instead of two—to
combat, and their remaining foe will then
no longer be able to fight from its ambush
of false professions, and false issues. Mr.
Buchanan will be compelled to carry on
the pro Slavery war opened by Pierce, and
there will then be no room to doubt under
which banner his forces are marshalled,
that of freedom orslavery. The people of
the North will never again rally to the
support of the latter. It has won, after a
hard contest, its last meagre victory.
