Wednesday Morning, April 8, 1857,
a Once more our glorious banner out
Unto the breeze we throw ;
Beneath its folds with song and shout
We'll charge upon the foe."
David Wilmot, our Candidate.
We rejoice at the hearty response with
which the nomination of Mr. Wilmot is
met, by the American Republican press of
the State. It argues a glorious victory.—
It is true a few uninfluential and unimpor
tant journals, such as the Daily News, Lan
caster Citizen, and one or two other Loco•
foco sheets, in disguise, are "kicking a
gainst the pricks," but their opposition a
mounts to nothing;—they have no influ
ence.t the people have found out that they
are always in the market, and like Hes
sian soldiers, always ready to fight for the
highest bidder, Principle with such a
set of men is a secondary consideration.
The N. Y. Triblne speaking of our nom
inee, says that his nomination is a bold
step on the part of the Republicans, Mr.
Wilmot's name is a landmark in the histo
ry of our age. It was he who in 1846
moved in the House the famous Proviso,
that the blood and treasure of the Ameri
can People, should not be poured out to
add to the Slave Territory of this Repub
lic. It was he who in 1848 led in Penn
s.ylvania. the Democratic revolt under the
standard of Van Rttren•and Free Soil.—
His speeches for Free Labor and Fremont
were among the most cogent and effective
of the many good ones which irradiated
the late Presidential canvass. An earnest
and tenacious Demoerar, he did not hesi
tate to renounce the party organization to
which he was devoted when he found its
further support irreconcilable with his al
legiance to vital Democratic principle. Mr.
Wilmot ought to be the next Governor of
Pennsylvania, and his election would re
dound to her enduring honor. It would
show that the indignities heaped on Reed
er and on Geary by the Slave Power are
not unresented—that she is not unmindful
of her sons who have been subjected to
outrage and apoliotion in Kansas for mere
ly seeking to make her a Free State. The
election of David Wilmot would be the
proper response of the Free States to the
atrocious Dred Scott decision.
If Pennsylvania is to be carried next
October for the principles of the American
Revolution, the work must be commenced
now—not by mass meetings and by exci
ting speeches, but by quiet organization
and the systematic diffusion of important
truth. We trust the favorable reason will
cot be suffered to pars unimproved-
The Late Elections,
The elections which have been held since the
Presidential contest closed show very favorably
for the Republican cause. To the result in
New York and New Hampshire we have allu
ded before. Rhode Island has
,just come forth
thoroughly revolutionized. The figures we
give iu our telegraphic columns conclusively
attest this -, hut to render the matter plain to
the reader, we give below a comparison of the
vote for Lieut. Governor last year, as compared
with the same this year :
1856. 1857.
Brown, Am.,7990 Mason, Am., 33:19
Robinson, ep., 1828 Turner, Rep., 5947
Pell, Dem., 7146 Hall, Dem., 1652
This was the test vote on both occasions, as
the rest of the State ticket was the same, The
redaction of the American vote from 7990 to
3339, and the increase of the Republican vote
from 1828 to 5917, must be considered as in•
dieative of the general decay of the former par
tl,e andrem Presidential
rapid . It a r . e . ad of theta: p l u att l e ie r.. U p t , t y o
was a mere shadow. Everywhere throughout
the North a sympathy was felt in its main prin
ciples, but the masses did not seem ready to
join in the organization itself and desert all oth
er political ties. The nomination of a distinct
Republican ticket for President and Vice Pres
ident, produced . immediate effect on public
affairs, which was increased and continually
stimulated by the relative positions.of the Ame
rican and Democratie parties. They are in a
great measure responsible for the present erica ,
mous size and influence of the new movement.
It has eaten largely into *both. Since Novem
ber the Democratic party has been making vi
gorous efforts to trecover its losses, while the
American party seems to be practically in a
state of dissolution. This explains the result
in Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
Glad to Hear It.
The Philadelphia Daily News takes the nom
Motion of the Union Convention terribly to
heart, and scolds like a very drab. After pitch.
ing into them like "a thousand of bricks," the
"side door" operators says In speaking thus
freely, and snaking known our determination
not to support thew candidates, we wish to be
understood to speak only for ourselves." Now,
this we call eminently selfish, and entirely or a
piece with its operations last year. It de
sires others to help it to kick up a MUSS, but it
is not willing to share with them tho price
which it hopes to get for holding itself quiet.
As to the fact stated, that the News will not
support the nominations, we arc really glad to
hear it. Popular as our candidates are, we do
not think they could bear up under the, odium
'which such a support would inflict on them,
and it is kind of the Neuss thus early to relieve
-them of any suspicion on that scare.
Governor of Kansas.
The Telegraph informs us that Robert J.
Walker, Se cretary of the Treasury under Pres.
idett Polk, and of late fancy financier and
Railroad speculator, has been appointed Gov
ernor of banns, with F. P. Stanton, of Ten
nessee, as Secretary. Both of these appoint
ments coming from the South, we may fairly
conclude that we are reaching the last act in
the drama of outrage, blood and murder, which
has been enacted in that territory. Mr. Buch
anan has been completely subdued by thetilavo
Power, and the fair promises that were made
for him by his friends daring the late Presi
dential contest, have vanished into thin air.—

The Dreiliet;it Case
gar Some of the Locofoco Editors refer "to
the decision of the U. S. Supreme Court in
Prigg vs. the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
and also to the opinion of the seine tribunal
recently delivered in the "Dred Scott case," as
setting forth the law on the subject of Slavery.
These editors are illy dogs, and decidedly face
tious. The joke in this case consist 4 in the
fact that the law laid down in one of these ca
ses is exactly contradictory to that laid down
in the other. In Prigg vs. the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania it is decided, as it always had
been decided, that slavery is the creature of
the local or State law, and coterminous with
the boundaries of the States in which it is es
tablished ; while, on the contrary, in the Dred
Scott ease, Judge Taney decides that the right
of property in a slave is expressly conferred in
the Constitution ; that the Constitution recog
nizes the right of master and slave, and makes
no difference between slaves and other proper.
ty ; and that, consequently, slaves may be held
as property outside of the Slave States, as well
as within them, like any other property.
This nationalizing of Slavery in a Democrat
ic Republic, by a government founded "to es
tablish justice promote the general welfare,
and secure the blessings of liberty," appears to
us a sorry subject for a joke, even by the "nig
ger worshipping" Democracy. According to
the decision, of Judge Taney, Slaves may he
held, and bought and sold, as well in Pennsyl
vanin as in Smith Carolina, in as much as the
Constitution is superior to any State laws, and
the Constitution guarantees to citizens the
protection of their rights and property.

narrow passage between the rocks that led in
to a dark and dismal cave. On arriving at the
mouth of the cavern, Thomas, after throwing.

A new political movement is on the tapis in

The steamship Texas has arrived at New

where Gen. Henningsen and his men had

The latter were met retreating, by Walker, and
being thus placed between two fires, suffered a
loss of 327 killed and 300 wouti&d, while Will.

reports that President Rivas had been assassi

Editors of the Hontinp,don Journal
With the close of the Presidential campaign,
we thought' would cease the barbarious and ne.
furious plottings of the Missourians, Kansas
squatters, and Northerners. But in this we
have been disappointed. The spirit of discord,
which appeared so threatening to the perpetuity
of the Union, prior to the November election,
still exists over our country—and in Kansas,
designing and unprincipled men have been bu.
ally at work laboring to overthrow the privile
ges granted to American freemen. The Kan.
sae Legislature, so.called, closed on the 21st
alt., and with it closed a dark and arrogativei
scene. Doubtless you have already been ap
prised of the immaculate body passing a law
conflicting with all notions of justice i snaking
murder a bailable offence
The farcical enactments imposed upon the
people of Kansas by the legal (1) Legislative
power, have even been rebuked by the people
of Missouri.
The hotheads of Kansas have been usurping
the power vested within them, and are trying
to make it appear that Governor Geary has
been acting partially in the discharge of his
executive duties. Continually complaints are
rife in our own State, (Missouri,) that Gov.
Geary has been favoring unjustly the Free
State party of the Territory; but the mature
judgment of many of our citizens will not give
any credit to such rumors, inasmuch as they
are only put in circulation to rouse and give
impetus to the already existing sectional feel
ing. We repose sufficient confidence in the
Governor to rest assured that he wall do no in
justice and not he guided or prompted to mea
sured not conforming with our republican sys
tem of Government. As there has been much
said relative to Gov. Geary, and Rd there hove
been meetings held in the Territory denouncing

and here, perhaps, it would be proper to re

Commun loation
(Steamer Emigrant.)
Sr. Loris, March 31st., 1867.
Dear Aurnal:—Sly Itia t letter was irom tort
Wayne, a most beautifully situated city in
the north western part of Indiana. Fifteen
years ago there were but four or five houses
there, now there are 15000 of a population, and
some beautiful residences and business houses.
Every religious denomination appears to be
well represented with fine churches. We rem
ted on the Sabbath, and on Monday morning
we took the ears for St. Louis, via Logansport,
Lafayette and many smaller and quite respec
table towns in Indiana. From Fort Wayne to
Springfield, Illinois, the railroad passes through
all kinds of country, from swamps to lakes,
from lakes to water and timber land and then
as we near the State line, we come irio the
meadow land, a dead level all along as far as
the eye can see. The cannily is well improved
and shows great richness and signs of pro•
gression, and especially in Illinois, where most
of the fences are made of willow or wire.
The transition from the Heaven-towering,
mountains and beautiful valleys of the Neystono '
State, to the slues and marshes of Indiana and
the broad, rol!ing prairie of Illinois, is so rapid '
'and the contrast so very great, that I can scarce
realize the fact that the distance is Only about i
fifty hours ride.
Front the State Line, after we come into Illi
nois, the timber becomes very scarce, which is
not the case in Indiana—there they have too
much, in Illinois not enough. But so it is in
this world, everything appears so unequally di.
vided. From the railroad, passing through
Illinois, oo neither shin can you see timber,—'
but one vast and lmundless flat piece of mea
dow land, with hero and there an occasional
marshy tract full of wildclueks and geese.
Night overtook so at Springfield. This is is
beautiful town with a population of 12000. It
has, almost by magic, arisen to be an impor•
tart and good business point. A few years
ago several citizens from your place, in passing
through the west, stopped at this place, and
were then offered laud in the central pot ,
tion of the town for $5O per acre ;11011 , the same
land is in lots, compactly built upon, and could
not be purchased for any prices this side of--
a pretty big sum. The reason those old gen.
tletnen from Huntingdon did not purchase was,
that timber was do scarce they were afraid they
would freeze to death in the winter. list, not.
withstanding all those early objections, Spring
field is now one of the largest and most impor
tant towns in this State, or the West. From
Springfield to St. Louis, it being night, I can
say nothing of that portion of the country, only
what I glean from passengers who got on by the
way. The land for 10 miles along the Wabash
.he St. Louis Railroad, ranges from $l5 to $5O
per acre, according to improvement; before the
completion of the Railroad such was not the

est market price for everything he can raise.
One old gentleman told me that a few days ago
he sold fifty head of fat cattle, foe on tho
hoof So you seo these railroads are not
only a blessing to contractors and Irish, but
also to the farmer.
In passing through this vast and beautiful
country we are astonished that your Ridge far
tours do not sell out and come to this country,
or some other part of the west, where they can
make a living easier than on the rough peaks
of the Keystone State. Perhaps it is because
they are afraid of the ague. Well, it is en.
ough to be frightened at; for it is really sicken
ing - to look at the poor, emaciated creatures
along through Indiana and Illinois. An Illi
nois gentleman, who got on the ears at Spring.
Geld, told me that he did not think there were
ten in one hundred men, who had been in that
State two years, but whose lungs were decea
sed. I could not help believing it, for he and
all of them looked quite spare. Indeed, I felt
quite corpulent when I lqoked upon them.

boat this morning; it is the only one we could
get berths in. Fare to St. Joseph, $15,00. All
