Organize for the Contest.
It is of all things important if the American ,
Republicans of the State desire to triumph in
the coming contest, that a thorough and eff•
dent organization be secured, and that a pro• ,
per spirit be aroused amcng the working men
of the party everywhere. We look also, to the ,
active exertions of the young men. In past
years, their services by means of Clubs and
Associations, bad a weighty influence, and we
hope they will work again in every district, and
without delay enter upon the.formation of clubs
and prepare for a vigorous defence of the great
principles which we now take with us in the
canvass. We urge thorough organization, dirk
cipline, unity of action, and with all, zealous
effort. These are as necessary in politics as in
war. A force wanting in organization will be
sure to sustain defeat, when opposed as we

source of wonder that the Locofocos should sue.
caed in Pennsylvania, with principles known to
be directly hostile to the interests and views of
a large majority of the people. The secret
lies, in a great measure, in the force of party
drill, and what this lacks is made up by the
moat unscrupulous professions of friendship
and pledges before an election, which are only
made to be broken. We must therefore coon•
teract the influence of organization cn the part
of our opponents, by an organization equally
efficient, and what is equally important, the
duplicity of Locofoco professions and promises
must be exposed, and the ur.wary and ensue•
pecting placed upon their guard against them.
In times, past, these professions and pledges
have been disregarded from the moment the
result of an election was known, and so they
will be in future.
The principles advocated by the American
Republican party come home to the very door
of every man in Huntingdon county who lives
by industry, or holds property. They are the
basis of Pennsylvania prosperity, and it excites
wonder in other States that Pennsylvania. with
her mountains of iron and coal, her ability to
become a large manufacturing State, and to
maintain a dense and thriving industrious pop
ulation, should be any other than a Republican
State. We believe, and know, moreover, that
she is Republican. We know something of her
people. we hare the voles. We need but get
all our vote to the polls to insure a brilliant
and overwhelming triumph. Shall this be
done ? or shall the people be suffered again to

that they control those few Northern States in

"NOW AND THEN:,
Under this caption, the first issue of Mr.
Buch.an's new supporter in this place, has
an article relati . ve to the " Republican" party.
It starts rut by asserting in indirect terms that
the " Republican" party was called into exis
tence and " still lives" solely upon the goes•
lion of " slavery in the territories," and broadly
charges, that it has forsaken its first love: for
proof of which it cites its readers, to the recent
action of the Republicans of the State of Maine,
in passing a resolution declaring that the `'pea
pie of a territory have a right to establish the r
own institutions in their own way subject
only to the constituiknal powers of Congress."
To these two questions, we ask the attention of
our readers fur a brief space.
In regard to the first assertion, we hold it
to be untrue in every particular. As remarked
the Tribune, at first our party was composed
of materials drawn largely both from the old
Whig and from the old Democratic parties,
and a portion of those who formed it having
been temperaly connected with the American
party, it was naturally to be expected that a t
first it should exhibit a certain want of unifor
mity and solidity rowing out of this compos
ite character. But already alt these diverse
materials are firmly united together, and the
party has certain distinct principles, aims and
objects as to which all its members are agreed.
The Republican party is properly entitled, and
alone entitled, to be called the conservative
party of the Union. It does not pretend to
have obtained any new lights, or to set itself
up as wiser than Jefferson, Washington, Hama.
ton, a nd other great men by whose courage,
labors and sacrifices our independence was
secured, and by whose wisdom the Government
was framed. It looks upon Slavery in the
same light as they did—as nu evil, political,
economical and moral, a great grievance and
heavy hardest unfortunately inherited from co
lonia' times. Hence the opposition of the Re
publ:can party to the spread of this evil beyond
its present list its, .d its disposition to set ore
all the territory belonging to the Union for the
exclusive uecupatitto of Free Labor, bit

Expansion shall be the law of the South ; as of
the North. * * * If these things are so, why
should we have any anxieties about the perpe
tuity of Alean slavery in the South? It is
of God, and cannot be overthrown."
Again in reference to the opening of the
Slave Trade, in a speech to his constituents,
lion. Stephens said:
"I am not telling coo, he said, to do it, but
it is n serious question concerning our politi
cal end domestic policy; and we do not want

reasoners. It is useless to wage war about nh•

er of unsoundness, unless we get more Afri•
The South must "get more Africans."—
That is the doctrine. "Slave States cannot be
made without Africans," and in order to secure
these, Mr. Stephens is in favor of stealing Cu.
ba. He says: "If Cuba wants to come into
the Union, he would not ask Spain, but would
be in favor of repealing the Neutrality Laws,
SO as to give our people a chance to help in her
Both Mr. Rhett and Mr. Stephens are prom
inent Democratic leaders in the States where
they reside. They both favor the stealing of
Cuba and the opening of the Slave Trade, for
the expansion of Slavery.
Here then, according to the Union's arg o n.
ment, we have the platform of the Democratic
party of the United States. It is simple and
easily comprehended. consisting of two planks

This is the entertainment to which the De.
mocrecy of the North are to be invited, and to
this complexion it must came at last. The
first plank will meet with comparatively little
opposition from the Buchanan democracy of
the North, as is proven by a recent speech of

an impartial mind."
Again the Richmond Enquirer, the leading
democratic paper in Virginia, in replying to a
contemporary no this subject, said:
"If the Charleston Convention shall reject

THE PENDING ISISUE
Nothing can be more Millard and unfranded
than the charge which certain journals persist
iu bringing against the Republican party, that
in the coming Presidential election they are de
termined to ignore the white man, and to make
the negro the only issue. The cor.nection of
the Republican party with the Slavery question
has been from the beginning, and still is, such
as to afford no shadow whatever for any charge
neglecting, overlooking or postponing the inter
ests of the white population out of any sympa
thy with the black race. The truth is—and we
state it not as a thing to boast af, but as a mere
matter of fact and history—that the Republi
can party cannot lay claim to any such charac
ter for philanthropy and disinterestedness as the
presses we refer to are ro anxious to ascribe
to it. No doubt a very large proportion of
the Reptibican patty would be greatly gratified
to see those who control the policy and legisla
lion of the Slave States as alive as Washing
lon and Jefferson were to the evils, moral, so
cial and political, of the institutian of Slavery.
They would hail with delight, and would be
ready to second by any means in their power,
.y steps which those States is their sovereign
capacity might take to ameliorate or gradually
to rid themselves of that evil. But the Re
public. party does not claim, any more than
dues the Democratic party, or than did the
old Whig party, any right to interference,
should the control of Congress and of the ex
ecutive Administration pass into their hands,
with the exclusive authority of the States over
that subject. It wee not any sympathy with
the black race, the cruel treatment to which
they are subjected, or the degraded position in
which they are held, that called the Republican
party into existence. It was the defense of the
interests of tree labor, the interests of the great
mass of the white population of these State r s', the
interest of those residents in foreign countries
who might wish to become citizens of this, that
so suddenly called into existence and so rapid
ly built up the Republican party. That party,
so far from closing its eyes to the fact that in
seventeen of our States there are few or no lie•
groes, and that in some of the other States the
negro interest is far from being predominant,
makes this precise state of facts the very basis
of its erg nization. and the foundation of the
system of policy which it advocates. As it was
oppesotion to the attempt of the negro interests
to seize upon and appropriate to its own use
territory which by a solemn compact and corn
promise hid been set apart to be colonized by
tree labor that called the Republican party into
existence, so it is the same devotion to the in
terests and rights of free labor—that is to say,
of the great mass of the white population—
that still sustains its organization and dictates

mous Compromises of 1850 given a great tri
umph to the negro interests, such as nobody had
thought possible, in the passage of the Fugi
tive Slave Act, than achemes hegan to beftwmed
fur the repeal of the Missouri prohibition. No
sooner is the Missouri prohibition repealed—a
thing which, two or three years before, would
have been scouted as it political impossibility ;
and not only repealed by Congress, but pro
flounced by the Supreme Court never to have
hod any binding force—than we see a new agi
tation set on foot for disposing in the same way
of the laws prohibiting the African slave trade.
It is not the Republican party—it is the Demo.
erotic party,, under the guidance and control of
the negro interest—that has given and that
gives to the negro question its late and present
prorninency. The Southern States are the
great stronghold of the Democratic party. and

feated in a square struggle, and the patronage
of the Federal Government wrenched from its
grasp, will it cease to insist, as Austria does in
the case of Italy upon its inclefetutiblo right to
rule. The question now pending, and that up.
on which the Republican party takes its stand,
is, Shull the United States continue to he a
Free• Labor country, or shall our whole policy
he ahuped, no far as the National Government
cao control it, to serve the interests of the own•
era of Slave Labor?
As au illustration of the purely defensive po
sition of the Republican party. and of the per.
severing spirit in which the negro question has
for years poet been forced upon the country
by the negro interest, we would refer to the
lute valedictory speech of Mr. Stephens of
Georgia, addressed to his constituents. In re
viewing his sixteen years of political life, and
justifying his opinions and his course of action,
the only questions to which he thinks it worth
while to make the slightest reference, are those
which related to the extension of Slavery. Ho
exults over the part which he bore in the an
nexation of Texas; and why? Because the ac
quisition of Texas, was important or valuable
for any reasons common to the whole nation?
Not at all; but because the annexation of Tex
as secured four Slave States to the Union. In
all his speech, from beginning to cod, there is
.t a hint that the country has any other in.
Wrests except those bound up in the extension
of Slavery. The great principle to be carried
out, he tells his constituents, is expansion—
the light of the slaveholders to go into the Ter.
riteries with their slave property. He is for
expanding into Mexico and Central America,
bat at the sitme time he significantly hints that
outside of Texas, there is a Stile chance for
increasing the number of Slave States, unless
at the same time we increase our African stock.
Thus, while Mr. Ruffin of Virginia goes for the
revival of the African slave trade as a means

The Hungarian regiments have already
shown symptoms of disaffection, and lately de
sertions have been frequent and numerous.—
A short time since as many as sixty deserted
en masse. They were retaken, placed before
a battery, fired upon with grape, and all killed
but two. At Brescia there were two deserters
one of whom boasted of having killed his colo

Austria is losing for her best soldiers. The
best swordsmen arid riders sbe possesses in
her cavalry are the Hussars, the boldest and
most dashing, and, if led by their own country

near Varese some timesince, he has been rad,

which were enrolled at Brescia and Milan in
such numbers, being left at the depot with
nothing decided about them for days together,
at last settled the question by being absent
with leave when wanted. At Milan notices
were fixed to the walls to say all such would
be considered as deserters; but they have not
gone back, and now, instead of the 16,000 so
mendaciously asserted lately to be with him,

A letter from Florence to the London Times
states that MM. Kossuth, Klapki and Teleki,
who had constituted themselves in that city as
a Hungarian committee, have separated, re•

KOSSUTII.—The Birmingham Journal has
learnt from private information that M. Kos
suth's family were preparing to proceed to Italy,
and were to have departed on Saturday, but the
news of the peace treaty arrested their pr?para•
Lions. On Thursday evening, they received a
telegram from bl Kossuth, announcing his safe
arrival in Switzerland. He thus seems to have
lost no time in leaving Italy immediately on the
news of the peace treaty, and so escaped a con
ference with the Emperor or Kaiser.
News FROM GARIBALDI'S Cones—l am able

to Garibaldi and his corps &armee.
You may readily imagine that the candy.
sion of peace had excited some apprehension
as to the conduct which that corps would per

or Garibaldi would stifle the grief which the
separation of Venetia must have excited in
Choir ardent minds, and that they would respect
military discipline: which has always been
exemplary among them. This, in fact, is the
case. On the arrival of thespews of peace,
General Garibaldi assembledills soldiers, nod
after having calmed their excitement by a nu
ble address, he invited them to renew the oath
of fidelity to the King, which they did without
opposition. This conduct, which reflects lion
or on all concerned in it, will prove to Europe
that the pretended revolutionary element in
Italy fully comprehends the importance of con.
