This victory just Won by the Republi
isms of our State is one of tylliolt we can
pap feel proud. We ought to have tri
umphed by Fifty Thousand Majority, and
might have dune so but for culpable mis
leading. The State is hostife to the Fed
eral Administration by at least One Hon
fired Thousand Majority, and the Repub
lican party is the nucleus and natural
head of that majority. Had our late
State Convention at Syracuse been wise
ly aotinseled and led, we should have tri
gtaphed by at least Fifty Thousand Ma
jority. To this end, it was not necessary
to appoint Conference Committees, enter
upon difficult negotiations, nor halve tick
ets. What should have been done Was
PO; 1, fluid our Convention some

Mr. BUchauan has been laboriug fur since
he had,the news of his election in 184

ject, for which he sacrificed the good will,
of many among his original friends, his
title to his ti,ivu esteem, and the fair place
he Might have occupied in his- country's

win, not to lose ; and- will. rally round
one who crams froth a recent' battle-field
bringing:with him the trophies of a great
victory. !.
We may expect, therefore, to see a
Douglas! party immediately termed in all
'the states, with its avowed champions and
recognized presses. It exists already : iu

tlie North. It has alreadY celebrated the,
success of its favorite by pliblic rejoicings;
I wider the very windows of the .President)
at Washington, greatly, no doubt, to the !
disgust of its! principal imp ' ate. Already
there are journals in the slate states., Which,
'from the iiNt, have expressed their earn-1
est desire that Douglas might prevail io
the Illineis.electious, and have done their!
best by friendly and ingenious explana
thins of his-opinions on the Kansas dues-'
tins'—explanations whieWhe will himself!

upon State SoVereignty, and its' devotoin ;
and subserviency to a miserable faction of
southern fire eaters, while, all the time it I
proelahned itself the special orilan of the
Administration, have gone far to destroy
all . confidence in that Administration. The consequence, is, that on an ripeal to

that they prefer the ascendency of ieetion

they have thus recorded their verdict
against an Administration which has,, in
their opinion, departed front bOth.
Let the Adtiduistration return to the
principles; enunciated in the cineintiati
Platform, and the Nebraska Bill, and mask,
to proscribe and persecute Democrats, and
the people will again sustain it. 1
