people which were at Jerusalem,_ to pro
claim liberty unto them." Brethren,
just such a covenant did our fathers enter
'into in 177-6. But, witness the sad re
snits of political wire-working. The his
.ory goes on to say, "Now he all the

tared into the covenant; heard that every
one should let his min -servant, and every
one hie niaid-iervant, go free, that none

more,.then th e y obeyed, and lot them
go. But afterwards they- turned and
paused the servants and the hand-maids,
whom they had let go free, to return, and
and brought them in subjection for ser
pents and for hand-maids. Therefore '
the word of the Lord, came to Jeremiah
from the Lord, saying, ye were now turn
ed_and bad done right in my sight, in
proclaiming • liberty every num. to his ,

my name; but you turned and polluted(

vant, and every nam his hand-maid,
'Ntedli be bad set at liberty at their pleas-,
`ire, to ret u rn, and brought them into!

and for hand-maids, Therefore thus saith
the loard; ye halve Pet hearkened onto Me,
in proclaiming liberty' every - one to his i
brother and every man to his neighbor ; I
behold, 'proclaim a liberty for you, saithi
the tord,• to the, sword,?- to the pesti

than. done. To the sword, pestilence,

upon the inevitable fate of these United

myself, however, by quoting a fewlines
from Jefferson, the apostle of democracy

The result of the election for. State of
fii.vrs has proved as we were led to sup
pose it would by the apathy evinced by
our friends throughout the State, during'
the entire campaign. But very little ef
fort was made, except by Judge Wilmot,
to secure any other result, and Border
Ruffianism has triumphed once more,—
Wm. F. Packer, together with the bal- 1
ance of the hunker State ticket, is elect- ,
ed by a majority ranging from 25,000 to!
80,000 votes. The defaet is not from
the want of strength in the Republican
party, bur from neglecting to exercise
that strength. Therefore the defeat is
not fatal nor very lasting. There -is- A
great plenty of the-Republican sentiment
in Pennsylvania, but time is required to
fix it upon the result of anelection.
The result of the election in Ohio, on ,
the same day, is still iO doubt, both par-I
ties claiming the victory, It is 'so close
however, that the official canvass alone
will determine it. We are much surpris
ed at this vote in Ohio,.in view of the
fact that the anti-slavery sentiment ofi
that State is generally presumed' o be in
vincible; therefore, with a positive free
Boiler as the standard-bearer of the Re-!
publicans, we regarded it as almost int
possible for a Hunker to make even a close I
run upon Gov. Chase. - But it is even so,
land the cause is to us a mystery.
I From lowa we have very few returns ; '
I )hut we are inclined to think the Shans-1
(writs have triumphed. .
In Minnesota, the Republicans have
elected their Governor S and a majority of '
the Legislature. This is a victory over' iwhieh we can heartily exult--inasmuch ,
as the People have thus endorsed the ac
tion` of the Republican members of the
Constitutional Convention, and rebuked
the Border-Ruffian efforts of ex-Gov. Gor
man and his prototypes to fasten a pro=
slaveryconstitution upon them. -
In Kansas, there is no longer any doubt
of the election of Marcus J. Parrot ; the
Free-State candidate for Delegate to Con-;
I gress, but the BOraer Ruffiaiss claim al
majority of one in the Council ; and three
in. the lower House of the Legislature.—
We are, however, inclined to think that'
their majority is fraudulent if at all. Gov. ,
Walker will doubtless manufacture a ma
jority.for them, even though the voice of
the people be different. We hope the
people are triumphant and reason victo

As our hunker friends are .trying very
hard to make out that 'Bnehanau
is doing something for free Kansas ;we
will call th° attention of the peOple to
what lie has done. He has continued
every Border Ruffian in office, and has
removed the only Free State Democrat
*horn President Pierce retained in office
in Kansas. Does that look bite making
Kansas a Free State ? But ;more than
this. He has sent one sixth part of the
entire army of the United States to Kan.
sas—for what ? To enforce oppressive
enactments, placed upon the Statute Book
by the emissaries of Missouri. Now what
excuse can Any defender of Buchanan
make for this conduct. Says the
t lanai Era:
"Is he sworn to support the laws of,
agy Territory.? simple oath is ;
to support the Constitution of the United I
States. Suppose he have reason to be-1
lieve that the Constitution was violated!
by the enactment, of such laws, what isj
his duty? To examine into them—first,
their nature; secondly, their origin. If'
he becomes convinced that they were pass.
ed' , by a body elected in' violation of a
great constitutional act, and therefore
legitimate, or that they are inconsistent
with rights guarantied by the Constitu-j
tion, what, then is his duty ? - To enforce I
them ? That would be to violate his oath i
of office.. His firat duty into the Consti-j
tutiun of-the ;United States; and fidelity!
-to that requires of him a careful examin
ation of any law he is called upon to en-1
force. We have no evidence that he pur-;
sued this course in relation to Kansas.--
On the contrary, he blindly recognises;
what exists, as rightfully existing : All;
that -is alleged concerning the violation of!,
,the organic act, in the election of what
claims to be the Legislature, lie' totally
ignores; and instead of construing his
oath 'of office 4.° impose on him the obli.l
gation to recognise that act, construes ; it ;
as imposing on the duty of maintain- 1
ing any Territorial law, so-culled,
er in accordance with that act or not.

1 Mr. Buchanan, In ,his late letter to cer
tain citizens of New England, uttered
the following rtimoraille doctrine:
! ‘‘3larery existed at ; that period, and still
i exists, in Kansas;under the constitution:of the
United States. - This point has been- at last,
finally settled by the highest tribunal known
to Our laws. liatc,it valid ever have been se
rimOly daable‘4'is a niptery. If is confedera
tion of sovereign states acquire a new territory,
at tche expense of their common blood and
treasure, surely one set of parol e e; ; : cart have
no right to ext.-lune the other-from its'ecjoy
ateut, by prohibiting them from taping ivOA, it is recognized to be property Ity the
common constitution: But when the I t ee,i k le
-"the bona fide re s idents of such tv,rritoci— 1
iircleeed to frame is state constitution, then it
iS their rightto decide the important question
for themselves, whether they will continue,

,and to
them alone, does this question belong free from
all' foreign interference." •
