SIR : In your leader .respecting my
gifts of land to colored Men; yuit find more
occasion for cominciiding me and for
blaming theta than the ease really affords:
!It was utit I, but my father, who toiled
to pay for the land: _lt is easy to Wive
away what we easily get. -1
I 1 sold the best and gave away the poor
!est of my laud. Some of it was 'given to
'schools, sonic of it -to white men, and
sonic of it to colored men: . My Consent.;
ring to sell any of it shows that Lwas per.
taps a better land-reformer in theory than',
in practice.,-
1 confess that my expeetations.from this''
measure have not been fully realized. Of'
the three thousand colored wen to whom'
I gave land', probably less than fifty . have
taken and eentinne, to hold possession of
their granta. What is worse, half of the
!three thousand, as I judge, :have. either
sold their land, or been so careless as to
I allow it to be sold for taxes.

amount, of Money, have finally passed into_
the hands of a company of the best busi

be seen' whether they will be able to man

ainounts -in their management; we hope
'that the company. may

not pay the whole amount of the purchase

will be-relieved from the payMent of in

The deed. as executed is written .imt

handsomely bound in Turkey morocco in
folio form. The book containing the deed,
contains also, a handsomely embellished
title page, decorated with a beautiful coat
of-arnis and other suitable devices; the
act providing for the sale of the
Line; the proclamation of the Governor
offering, the same for sale are also bound

purchase money and bonds to the amount
of seven millions and a half, signed by
the proper accounting officers, closed this
pleasing drama.
Subsequently the Governor made prcie
launitimi of the fact, and frorn and after
Saturday last all the officers on the main
line were iu the employ of the - Railroad
Company. How long-they will remain so
depends on their behaviour, as inefficiency,
neglect, drunkenness, dishonesty, and of h

have the must gratifying intelligence of
the firmness of the Republican masacs.
The people of our party feel that their
representatives are right, and ' bid them
stand firm. During the past week many
of the delegates dace been home, and
(hey all report, " all right." Large and
enthusiastic meetings have been address
ed iu Steele and Waseca eountie , ,
Messrs. Cogswell :and MeKune, and in
Winona by Mr. Wilson. The people
say to these gentlemen, "We know you
are right—go ahead !" On the other
hand, the Democratic press and the Dem
ocratic people, either say, nothing, or else
condemn the course of their members.

The Influence of Slavery on

Influence on Slavery on the South," is
contained in a pamphlet recently publish

entitled " A Reply to 'Prof. Bledsoe's Es

calls the great heresy of .Calhoun, that

the secret policy of Pnasidentllnchanan,
aswell as: upon the pitifessiona - and pledges
upon which he 'obtained • his - nomiaatton '
which' Senator Brown was one of ;the
committee appointed by .the !Cincinnati
Couvention to commumeate to him..
.The aelnienence o the South in the
nomination of so untAable a man as Mr.
Buchanan has always I bail a strange ap
ptrance, and gave lismn for a suspicion
of a secret uriderstatuling betvreen theitwo
parties, and . of concessions by the nomi
nee more liberal- thanl it would be pru
dent to disclose to the country at large;
and now we have dui 'proof "strong us
holy writ" in the authOriiatiit declarations
of his chief southern sPakesinan, the Sen
ator from Mississippi.
It is :well known • tliat ,in Mississippi,
Brown. speaks fot Mr. Buchanan; and is
at' the head of the. Administration party,
as distinguished from' the states-rights 'or
fire-eating faction, l+ded by General
Quitman . and Jefferson Davis,, Brown's
senatorial colleague. . Senator. .-BroWn's '
Mr. iiekaustis- behalf are
therefore virtually of an official chliketer.
We do not doubt that-the 'President
would desire Mr: Brown to keep the in
formation communicated in the speech
published to-day to himself, but the exi
gencielf of a hoe contest for a reeleCtion
to the Senate have conipelled the oracle
to speak out. - The fire-eaters were de- I
flouncing him as the -supporterof an' Ad-
ministration which had sentto KausasG or- '
ernor Walker, ap avowed advocate of pop
ular sovereignty, ev'efi when it might re
laid in the exclusion of slaVery froin the
territory. What:reply doe's Mr. Buchan
anl authorize him to make? Why: sim-
Iply. that "Mi. Buchanan prononuces
isquatter sovereignty. one of the : most
!damnable heresies ever broached," and
:prolniseS that "he shall leave nothing un- '
[done to throttle it." Senator Brown, as 1
1 the leading - supporter of the President at 1
Ithe South, promises that, as aproof of',
the sincerity- of' this declaration Walker
shall be removed, and that if declaration,
1 ' ,4 not,
Mr: Buchanan will deserve -and- receive
the execrations of the united Soizth
`that she would denounce I him as "false"
to the ,priueiples.-of the Kansas bill,• and
a traitor to. her best- interests?! '
We ask the Northern supporters of the
Administration how they like this inside
view of its policy. What do . 'they think
of Mr. Buchanan's southern exposure ?
