FOR PRESIDENT IN 1500,
STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS.
Of the United Slates.
- - FOR VICE-PRESIDENT,
. Of Tennessee.
. WHO arc Working Together?
' We are frequently charged ty certain
editors, and other 'lrcad and butter"
gentry of. this Territory, of working with
"the Republicans in cur support of Mr.
Douglas and his view? upon the great
question agitating; the country, viz: tht
rights of the people of the Territories!
' We care uot tc ho we are found working
with, while principle, right, and justice
' ens guiding stcrs. We submit the follow
ing however, to show that we are work
ing nationally, and that Mr. Buchanan
and his crib-fed followers, who are busy
. proscribing Mr. Douglas and his adher-
e&ts, are sectional, and acting in concert
. with the most ultra Republicans. We
believe the masses of the people in this
" country Union loving citizens of all
"parties, agree with Mr. Douglas in his
.position upon the slavery question; that
it if a local one, and thouli be left
with the States and Territories to regu
late in their omi tray. Bat here are the
-extracts, to which we invite the careful
"consideration of those who would "read
-Vs out of the party !"
.It being the true intentand meaning of
. . this. act not to legislate slavery into any
.Territory or State, nor to exclude it
therefrom, but to leave the people there
of perfectly free to form and regulate
their domestic institutions in their own
way, subject only to the Constitution of
the United States. Sec. 14, Kansas-Nebraska
The' American Democracy recognize
. - end. adopt the principles contained in the
organic law establishing the 'Territories
. of Kausaa and Nebraska as . embodying
the only sound aud safe solution of the
slavery question. Third . Resolution of
. . Our fathers before the Revolution,
"claimed that it was the birthright of Eng-
Jibhmen, their inalienable right, when
formed into political communities, to de-
cide all Jocal questions to suit themselves,
. and the battles of the Revolution 'were
. fought in defence of that principle. Now,
are not the people of the American Terri-
lories, . being American citizens our
brethren and kindred entitled to as
many rights of self-government as British
eubjects were before the Revolution.
The people of a Territory, like those
of a State, shall decide for themselves
whether slavery shall or shall not exist
.within their limits.
. ' JAMES BUCHANAN.
Before he was elected.
, - The majority of the people by the ac
tion of the Territorial Legislature, will
decide the question; and all must abide
. the decision when made.
The great and leading feature of the
fcansas-Nebraska bill was to transfer the
' slavery question and all other subjects to
' the Territorial Legislatures.
J. L. ORR, of S. C.
I am willing that the Territorial Leg
, islature may act upon the subject "when
aud how they may think proper.
A. H. STEPHENS, of Ga.
I am connected with no party that has
. . for its object the extension cf slavery, nor
. with any to prevent the people of a State
or Territory from deciding the question
of its existence or non existence with
them for themselves.
J. C. BRECKENRIDGE.
This principle of self-government in
the Territories enables us to banish from
the halls of Congress another fertile
source of discontent and .excitement.
- J. P. BENJAMIN, cf La.
" Under the ICan -as bet, citizens from
the s-laveholding Slates may go' into the
territory with their property; citizens of
the free States may go there holding no
' uch property, and when they get there
and iiieet in common council as a legisla
tive body, they may determine whether
the institution shall prevail. ;
J. M. MASON, of Va.
If the people of the Territories choose
to exclude slavery, so far from, consider-
ing it a's a wrong done to' me ' or my con
stituents, I shall not complain of it it is
G. E. BADGER, of N.C.
We intend that the actual settlers in
the Territories shall be protected 'in the
.full exercise of all the rights of freemen
and shall legislate for themselves while
they have a territorial government.
R. TOOMBS, of. Ga.
. It Is the right of the people to govern
themselves, and they alone shall exercise
it, as well while in a territorial condition
in the position of a State.
. . G. W. JONES, ofriVum..
The people of the Territories are ex
pressly authorized to legislate upon all
subjects whatsoever, slavery included.
They may either establish or abolish it,
at their pleasure.
. J. PETTIT, of Iud:
I believe that under the provisions of
the Kansas bill, and of the Utah and New
Mexico tills, there will be a perfect carte
llanche given to the Territorial legisla
tures to legislate as they may think pro
per. R. M. HUNTER, of Va.
The citizen of Virginia is as much en
titled in the coirmon territory to the pro
tection of bis property as the citizen cf
Illinois; but both are dependent upon the
UgkUhcn of the territorial government
for laws to protect their property, of
whatever kind it may be.
WM. A. RICHARDSON, of 111. .;
I would leave to the people of the Ter
ritories, who ar to be riVcted y the
institution of slavery, 13 dttermii.e the
question for themselves, in their own .ivayj
S. A. SMITH, cf Tcnn. j
The power to establish' or exclude sla
very will be found among those which
were reserved by the people, and which
the framers cf the Constitution never in
tended tcr bo surrendered "to the federal
gcverment by any portion of ,the people
in this country, whether living "in" the
States or after-acquired Territories. -'- -;

."Old John Brown." : i
To-morrow is. the day named in - the
sentence for the execution of "Old John
Brown," and as a "standing army" has
been called into requisition, we presume
he will be "hung by the neck until he js
dead, dead!" .We do not believe in
hanging any man for any crime ; but as
Brown and his confederates have violated
a law the penalty of which is death, we
are not disposed to complain ; nor ; do, we.
think any Northern man, or even friend
of Brown, should. . And. further, if he
and others are thus to be dealt with for
the crimes committed, we think all who
were accessory, or who were instigators,
or, in any way, promulgators cf senti
ments or doctrines that would tend to pro
duce such acts as those committed by
Brown and associates, let them hail from
the North or South, should suffer a like
penalty ! We wonder if Gov. Wise, who
is so eager to secure atonement for '.offen
ded laws, has forgotten that-he, .durjng
the last Presidential campaign, .declared
that if Mr. Fremont was elected . Prdsi
dent, he would take the Government Ar
senal at Harper's Ferry, and with arms
march upon the Federal Capitol at Wash
ington ! If he has, the country hasnot.
Has he forgotten, too, that' during the
same year, the Government Depot at Li
berty, Mo., "Was taken "possession of . for
cibly, and the arms use'd against the peo
ple in Kansas! If he has, the country
has not. ' ; "'
WTe do not mention these circumstances
to paliate "Old Brown's" offence, but as
a reminder that there are "JashuaGid
dings," . "Sewards,"; and "Lincolns"iin
the South as well as in the North;' and as
a lover of the Union, and one who desires
ardently its perpetuation, we believe in
dealing alike with traitors, and thc utter

that immediate steps be taken, with the
view or entering into. an , agreement or
