fe''The dtslalD ition of
so many Southei ;r1 from
the Army and : ;Caltinn•
out of the slave I 1 c.a., ._,_ght the
North z lesson from which they should
derive much counsel, and station guide
posts along the road ot government •pre
fernacni`,,whose hands, pointing out a (11f-I
ferent course from that pursued by Pierce
•iind Buchanan misrule, would avoid the
difficulties under which the 'government.
now labors.. Men who have been suppli
ed, from their youth, with education, pe
cuniary support and the. advantages which
"lore acquired by high civil and military
positionS, have, when the time of greatest
need come upon the 'country, - proved
[ thenfselyes to be open,tr?rors, or seeking
refuge behind
.the-Ilimsy veil of "not de
' slang to-fight
,against their .friends at
home," have resigned—thus aiding and
übettieg in the work of treason.
This has been caused. in a great Inca,
surti'by their fealty toslayclry —the curse
Lto themselves and their country, the great
miasma that has floated over their States
preventing their advancement in civil!ia
' lion and internal- improvethent, clogging
the wheels of emigration, laying waste the
I most fertile of soils, snd fur which they
aze now - atteqpting to dismember their
country. fut, let us the causes
!which have produced this great majority
lof Southern officers.
,Wherever slavery
exists, laboi..l considered disgraceful ;
hence, young men, especially of the mid
dle classes, who have not the weans tb
establish themselves in a business or prii-
Ifession,seek offices under the government,
land for that end their education is a( the
(particular kind, best- suited for such posi•
tions. ! From their childiMod up they sre
wade to understand that such is to be
their life and . that the - better the preparit- -
lion the greater the probability of being
-promoted. Acting Upon this principle
ff the. South has become one great nest of
office seekers, and We .are sorry to say it
is a very successful one; and as shivery
-is ever suspicious, and or laic years been
xnuch alarmed by
. the :progress of free
principles in the North, she has been
tinb into the hands. Of her children the
best positions,--and we Jr the
result; The Northern youth whose life'
ts labor and who .delights in the excite-
.inient of carving for. himself a naive, has .
heretofore looked with somewhat of
tempt upon the '•blue coat and bra'ss but
ton': positions, choosing rattier thnsuposi : ,
tion S which will bdist qualify him for
efitingks fellowmen and gain for hiMself
an honorable position in the civil world.
By•these means the South have here
t4fure held the Majority - i;f offlees, altho'
lief ei!nal to the North in Population. The
,new is, shall this state of things
cont4.ib ? Will not the North endeavor
hereafter to occupy those-positions which
in jbatice , belongs to her, and fur whielr
her' sons can easil'y qualify themselves.
• Thus, the' North, übt from inability,
but for lack of desire 'for such puirsuits,
Las been giving into the' hands of the;
enenties of her country the very advan
tages she should improve and use for the
preseriStion Of her liberties. • —ln the
future Would it not lie well for every Mem
ber of Congress, from
.the. North, to sec
that his district is represented in . b4ll
Akiny and 'Nayy, and by thoie who•will
make the • proper efforts to successfully
compete with those of the. Southern, sec
tion of oartnion. iSuel young men can
be .found. .Let thew not be taken; as
they ttogatly are, from wealthy families,
but let them come from the pc i ople.and
he those who have to look to their'oWn
- individual energies tor ,a liveli'aoodpand
we, will soon Bo a different state of af:,
fail in our country.;, we will' then have
mert - who will pay some respect to their
oath of allegiance, who will not'saCrifice
their honors for the spread of slavery, but
-who when the time comes 'for'ttotion iviu
be found true to:the: principles ,of right
and humanity . , and true to their Cciintry.

.IZcZir'Aa the Fall Election is approach-
tog and . licretofore_ there has been sonic
trouble in regard to the men nominated,
*would , it not he well to adopt the system
`orneminatinz by hallot - , and at the time
f voting for candidates vote also for or
gttinst the system; and see 'which system
eitsuited the great mass of people in
,the county.
The 'Mode is -thus : Candidates give
notice to the people of the county ortheir
'desire for promotion to certain offices, 9e
County Committee meet and appoint a
sa the peoplil of the different districts
appoint officers .to hold I nc election,-anti
they go to the polls and:vete the same aS
they would at anfother, election.
.111.4 system has many features that .
commend \ rit to the. con . sidei-ation_.of the
thisl„system the' fecliiv,of
the viliole county is - ..known
woulei be' most popular at,:tho
there is no jugglery practised whereby
Men who are eminently unp3pular can ,c
nominated, there is no -"nominating ittl

there is no foreirg of Men, into voting for
