About the meanest specimen of political rascality that have latelj come under our notice, are
the efforts of men allied to, and acting with
other parties to use the honored old Whig
mme for the purpose of advancing the interests
of such p; rties. Although such trickery is in
&e highest degree disgraceful, yet we see men
who call themselves honorable and are so regard
ed, engaging in it and attempting to deceive the
public, all the while protesting stout'y that they
till are Old Lane Whigs. In the recent Whig
Slate Convention which met in this city there
were seme bogu Whigs who ssught to obtain an
expression in favor of the worst enemy of the
Whig party has on earth, Milhrd Fillmore,
but the good sense of an overwhelming
majority of the Convention indignantly reproved
the effort, and covered its authors with shame
and mortification. We have already exposed
the meeting of the logtu Whigs at Lexington,
and we now have to notice similiar efforts in
other places to induce the belief that the Whig
party in certain localities is in favor Fremont.

Buchanan and the Bargain.
Just as the editor of this paper was entering
the Luisville an J Frank lort Railroad Depot, be
fore starting for his home, in the country, yester-- i
afternoon, he was violently assaulted by
Elias R. Hall, who struck him with a large hick- -
t as ory stick lefore he w as even aware an attack on
t M him was meditated. He warded off the blows

There never was a more unfounded falsehood
than that of Mr. Buchanan's connection with the
alleged bargain between Clay and Adams. At
the time, he was a young member of Congress,
bo on terms of intimacy with either Jackson or
Clay. He was then a member of the o'J Fede
ral party, which, like the Whig party of the present day, was disorganized, and, like the Whigs
now, having no cindidate of his own party, had
to look to another party for Lis choice of a Pre
ident. Among others, he had a right to his
preference. He admired both Jackson in J Clay
at that time, and wished to see the one President and the other Secretary of ftate; and after
the Kentucky Legislature Lad requested the
Kentucky Representatives in Congress to vote
(or Jackson, he naturally enough thought his
wishes were likely to be accomplished, and so
said to Clay, in Letcher's room, that he hoped
he would vote for Jackson, as the Legislature
requested, and that he hoped also Clay would be
appointed Secretary of State. It was in this
state of things that Buchanan had the conversation in Letcher's room with Clay a conversation, under the circumstaiices, perfectly natural
and wholly innocent. Ard that it was so, is
the only inference that can be drawn from Mr.
Clay's account of it as detailed in Col'on, Life
ani Times of Clay. That account, in Clay's
own handwriting, represents Mr. Clay as treat
ing the whole matter "playfully.
Had it been
an authorized, corrupt, or dishonorable proposition, Clay would have treated it any other way
No man who knew Clay but
would as soon Lave attempted to pull his nose as
offer him a corrupt proposition.
Yet the Know- Nothings would have us believe Buchanan made
a proposal to Clay so gross that, ;f Letcher could
peak out, it would damn him. It is all non
sense. There was nothing improper in the affair.
as Clay's own account clearly shows. The call
ea Letcher to speak out is all rank hypocrisy
Letcher knows nothing, believes nothing, not
already made public by Colton. But we may
peak of this hereafter.
If Buchanan had known, at the time of the
alleged conversation in Letcher's room, the in
imical personal relations existing between
Jack ton and Clay, he could never have believed
that Jackson would appoint Clay Secretary. So
a few minutes conversation with Jackson on the
street, on a cold stormy day, which be fully related in 1827, and a perfectly harmless chat with
Clay in LHcher's room, is the whole foundation
for this calumny against Buchanan! The alro.
city of the wrong to Buchanan is scarcely
greater than Jackson's original calumny agiinst
Clay. But it is nevertheless urged for the pur
pose of incensing Whigs against Buchanan.
Honest Whigs will not be deluded by a charge
never made until thirty years after the alleged
offence. They have too much sense and boror
to stultify themselves thus palpably.
ing dropped a pistol from his pocket. Mr. Hal
deman then wrested the cane from him, when
Hall turned and rapidly fled down Jefferson street,
leaving behind his hat, cane and pis'ol.

was the paragraph tl at app-are- d

him, though the many witnesses of the affair
justly thought he deserved the most nummary
A warrant was issued last evening for the ar
rest of Hall, who, no doubt, is skulking about
the environs of the city. In addition of being
guilty of committing a cowardly assault upon a
peaceable citizen, he has violated the law by carrying concealed a deadly weapon. His club was
eft at our office; his pistol was handed to an
officer, and his hat is perhaps in the gut er where
he left it.
The Pacific Kailrond.
The following is an abstract of a bill agreed
upon by the Special Pacific Railroad Committee
in Congress, and which we trust may be passed
before an adjournment:
Three roads are to be provided for one to be

company, of which Alexander Ramsny
is President; one between t'ae thirty-cigrrty-fourt- h
parallels, to be eon tructrd by an
associati n of all the roads now chartered and
running westward through Iowa and Missouri,
the junction to be formed near Fort Kearney,
and the single trunk to run to the navigable
aters of the Pacific, in Calfornia; and the
Southern road is awarded to the Southern At- antic and Pacific Railroad, of which T. Put'.er
King is President a new company, associated
with the Atlantic and Pacific riilroa l company,
of California, the Texas Western Railroad Com
pany, and the Yicksburg and Shrevesport Com
pany. This line runs from the Mixaiitnippi, at
some point south of the thirty-eight- h
runs to San Francisco, with a branch to San
Diego, and with a grant of forty sections of land
to the mile west of Texas to the California line,
nd then ten sections per mile to San Francisco.
No grant is mode for that poition of the road
east of the western boundary of Texas. The
Northern road receives forty sections from point

road receives thirty s?ci n until it readies

Bloodt Afteat. A few days s:nce, Dr.

ith a citizen, and shot him in the head, the ball
entering the mouth and coming out at the neck.
The cause assigned was he writing and publishing of some insulting poetry about Taylor and

last Wednesday by lightning, and, strange to
say, he was sitting between two persons in the
door of a houe: with his little hand in the lap
of a lady, and resting himself on a young man.
The child was killed instantly, without f percept
ible scar. The your.g man was thrown senseless, but recovered, receiving a burn down his
back to his knees, thence the lightning penetrated
the floor. The young lady received no hurt.

The Felon Hall His Coadjutor.
Elias C. Hall alia Elias Hall, who made a
dastardly assault upon the editor of this paper
and then fled the city, to parts unknown, had a
highly characteristic card in the Louisville Jour
nal yesterday, over the signature of Elias Hall,
his last aha. Even the most casual reader can
not fail to perci ive that the card in question, if
written by Hall, was furnished to the editor of
the Journal several hours before the premedita
The programme was marked out,
but the performance was entirely changed. In
6tead of hearing "c; I!s for mercy," the coward's
legs were rallel in pLy to carry his caicassout
of harm's way.
The whole statement is a miserable perversion
of facts unworthy of comment ; but it is very
apparent that the editor of the Journal, if not the
instigator of the dastardly act, was an accessory,
and in the full confidence of the felon who attempted it. The affair occurred at the railroad
depot about five o'clock in the evening, and Hall,
alter beinj disarmed, and knocked down, was
seen to fly bareheaded, as fat as his legs could
carry him, to the outskirts of the city. The police soon after were on his track, but could not
catch him, or find hide or hair of him from that
moment up to the present time. The Journal
of the next morning, parades the fellow's card
without one word of extenuation, or even refer-in- g
to the rencontre, though the editor must
have been in full possession of the ficts of the
case. As we said before, oinment is unnecessary.
We, however, desire to make a few corrections
of our previous report of the case of Hall, as alluded to in the Journal' card of yesterday. It
is as follows :
It is not true that I "hired a horse at Davis &
Bacon's stable, and drove rapidly to New Albany,"
nor that I "left in hot haste." I have not been to
New Albany for one month past, and I lett here

my business, as derided a week betore, as my friends
well know, and then I lelt in open day, and went

We learn from the proprietors of the stable,
that Hall, at the time alluded to, did hir? a horse
nd buggy for the ostensible purpose of going to
ew Albany. The vehicle was sent back the
next day. That he was not sent to State prison
for threeyfart, is true, but it is also true, and we
ave the record now before us, that he was con- icted to the Auburn Mate prison, Erie county,
New York, for two years, for horse stealing, and
served out his time. It also appears that he was
not indicted for house breaking, but for forgery
and for grand larceny. In regard to his claims

fountain ink pencil, for it can contain ink enough to

An application was made to Judge Storer, in
the Cincinnati Snpreme Court on Tuesday, to dis

of iron had been attached. It was agreed between
the connsel, Mr. Taft and Judge Warden, that 350
tons should be discharged from the attachment.

The State Election.
On Monday next, the 3d of August, occurs th"5
annual State election. Being one for judicial
and local administrative officers only, it should
possess no interest and give occasion to no excitement of a political nature. But such, unfortunately, is not the case. A variety of causes
have produced a novel and alarming condition of
affairs in Kentucky. The chicanery, the meanness, the intrigues and corruption of politics,
have been introduced into the judicial elections
of our State, and these we consider portentious
of evil. The last Legislature, or lather the
Know Nothing majority in that body, brought
about this state of case. In redisricting ihe State,
there was shameful, palpable tnd avowed
for the most base and unworthy par- tizan purposes. In every instance where it was
possible, they made the districts such as to insure the election of Know Notliing officers.
Edicts were then issued by the Frankfort clique,
orderin; nominations by the order, and the breth
ren were commmded to support them. This
left no alternative to the members of the opposi
tion, and they were forced, in
present contending candidates. The contest is,
therefore, in many of the districts, solely one of
party. The result, however, will afford no safe'"
criterion for the November election. Personal
friendships and family influence will have their
weight next week; which causes will be powerless in the Presidential Election.
Still there will be a large Democratic gain,
and we confidently anticipate th? election of a
majority of Judges of that party all of whom,
it is our happiness to know, are eminently quali
fied for the positions to which they aspire.

Democrat My good neighbor, I feel great solid
tude and anxiety more than I ever did in regard
to the threatening aspect of our political affairs. All
considerate conservative men apprehend real danger
impending, and threatening the peace and stability
of our republican institutions and the Union itself.
Have you thonght seriously on the subject?
Whiff I have; and aside from all partizan proclivities and feelings, I am constrained to say. that
it becomes all good, conservative, wise men to lay
aside all former political animosities and prejudices
and come forward openly and boldly to the rescue,
in that way which may appear to them most favor
able and successful.
Dem. Just so; let me freely and fiankly say to
you, that I can see but one course to be adopted to
secure this desirable object. There are now three
candidates for the Presidency before the people.
Two of these are
both abolitionists, whose proclivities and prin
ciples are hostile to the institutions and interests of
tneboutn. rillmore, who has no chance for election, it is generally believed will evaporate by fusion
or amalgamation with the Black Republican party,
the Northern Abolitionists, and thereby secure the
election of Fremont. Should there be no choice by
the people, then the election is thrown into the
lower house of Congress. With its present Abolig
renjority, Fremont will be the
President, and with such men as Seward Sumner,
Wilson, Giddings, Ac, as his aids and dictators, it
is not hard to tell what will be the fate of our Union.
In the hands of such men "the Union must slide.
Now, mark ye what I say, and call me a fake

If it is true, as said, that brevity is "the soul
ol wr, then the Journal s version of Washing
ton's letter to Adams, of date November 27,
1794, is replete with an article which has of late
been sadly wanting in the columns of that sheet,
wi, of which it has none "a plentiful lack";
the nearest approach to it found (in these days
of its degeneracy) in the columns of that vast
the Journal, is a
certain blackguard rudeness which tickles the
groundlings, and a specious of highfalution ex
travagance of denunciation that finds favor with
fanaticism, and sometimes extorts a smile from
sensible people by its stupendous disregard of
truth. Uf th. so. t is the article and argument
in which the above noticed lotter is found.
The reader will perceive that this letter of
V ashington s
is a reply to one from some other
party, and that no political propos tion was in
tended tj be discussed by it; it was written in
anwer to one from Mr. Adams, u;on the sub.
ject of transplanting the anciant college of G n- eva, the most profound in Europe, and which had
been demolished by the revolution tj the United
btates of America.
Mr. Jefferson had, also,
written to Washington upon this subject. Mr.
Jefferson, in his letter to Washington of date of
iMol February, 17'Jo, says:
"M. D'Invernois,a Genevan, f Switz r'and) and a
man of science, known as the author of a history
of that republic, has proposed the trissmiwon of
that College (the College of Ganeva) in a boat to
to America. He has written to me a he has done
to Mr. Adams."
Mr. Jefferson, as was Mr. Adams, was slronwlv
in favor of the project, if a suffici.-n- t
money could be raised with which to carry out
the project, and so wrote to Wash;ngton. He
suggests various schemes to Washington for that

Address ta the WfcUs ef Massachusetts.
At a meeting or the Whig State Central Committee, held in the CitT of Boston on the morning .f
Jaly 21, 1306, a Urge mmber of
bers of the party was present, by invitation, for the
purpo e of consultation upon public affairs. The
resmt or their Ueubetatious was a resolution to call
a general convention of the Wbijs of Massachusetts,
to be halden in Boston on the 3d day r.f September
next, a notice of which has been already published.
It was als j resolved that a brief address in th
meantime should be put forth for the consideration
of the Whig voters of the Commonwealth.
In the discharge of the latter obiization. and in
view of tbe fact that it was deemtd best to defer
decisive action until the fairer oi uortuuitT for
general discussion and tor the formation of delibe
opinions should be afforded
by the meeting of the convention, tbe committee do
not feel it necessary for them to enter into any
formal exposition of nartv doetricts. or to do any
thing more than recur to those leading principles
which they conceive to form some of the verv ele
ments of public duty.
The Whigs of Massachusetts may well feel the
high and generous satisfaction that they have
hitherto constituted a party of principle. The plana
and motives of policy are more or less temporary.
