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. SEEING THEIR FOLLY. 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 Freedom. 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 : ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY. 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. A DIRECT VOTE. 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. Naseachusetts. 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 Fillmore, THE RESULTS-TM FUTURE. 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 ceived 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. _ _ Mit. FOWL= IN PRII.ADCLPHIA.-A course of scientific and popular Lectures on Phrenolo• gy and Physiology is announced by Mr. Fow. ler of New York, to be given in Philadelphia, commencing early in December. All who are interested will find the present opportunity most favorable to obtain full and accurate information on these interesting and important subjects. Mr. Fowler elands at the head of his profession, and will instruct anti interest his bearers. The Thirty-Fifth Congress of the Unl sea fait& The next Congress will contain a Democrat. ic majority in both branches. It will date its existence on the 4th of March 1857, when the new President will enter upon the duties of his office. The Senate, when full, comprises sixtytwo members, or two from each of the thirty•one States. The recapitulations to as follows: Democrats, Opposition, Vacancies and doubtful, Total, The House consists of 234 member. id all, and thus far the opposition majority is 24. There are 84 yet to be elected or ascertained, including the two who were elected in Califor nia on the 4th inst. The results to the present time are ae follows: Democrat., 63 Opposition;B7 The chances are, that at leak 49 more Dem• ocrate will be, elected, or will be heard from, while the Journal of Commerce give. 23 more, as likely to act with that party. This bower• er, is yet to be ascertained. That paper makes this recapitulation: . Democrats in the above lid, 63 Democrats in States yet to elect or heard - from 49 Southern Know-Nothings, including two in Missouri, embrac ed in the above list, 28 Total conservative members, All other members, Conservative majority in a fall House, 46 It should be remembered, however, that the Journal is a Buchanan print, and it speaks of the Democrats as “Conservatives"—a singular misnomer I All but Pennsylvania and Indiana have gone over to the Abolitionists of the North —and Pennsylvania and Indiana were only saved from thus going by the resolute ac tion in those States of the friends of Mr. Fillmore, New Jersey goes for Buchanan only because of the like resolute action of Mr. Fillmore's friends. But for the Ante ican party Abolitionism would have swept every Northern State, and elected a 'sec tional and geographical' President —N. P. Express, This is a confe.sion which should re ceive the attention of the American party, What we charged before the election is here boastfully admitted, that Fillmore was only kept in the field to secure the elec tion of the Dimocratic Pro-Slavery candi date for the Presidency. Kr Among the counties in this State deserving special mention and commends!. lion, Somerset is not the least. The Bu chaniers confidently counted on a majority there. Wm. B. Reed was imported front Philadelphia to win over its old-line Whigs; Balsam Black was let loose upon it to take it by storm ; Judge Block and Judge Kim mel prophesied wondrous things concern ing it; and yet in the face of all the efforts to change it, is has given 1100 majority against Hu c nanan. Irer at uruy could not be won from their old allegiance. Iler gallantry in the well contested fight challenges our admiration. War The other day we dropped in Pretty. man's Atnbrotype and Daguerreotype Gallery, up stairs in the Station House, and were shown some of the neatest and best executed pictures we have over seen. They cannot be beat.— We would suggest to all our friends that if they want a superb likeness, now is the time, for Prettyman can do it better, cheaper and quick er than any other man. .And that's so too.
