Of all tho pestilential scourges which bad ntllictcd our race, tho Asiatic cholera, in some of ils characteristics, was the most remarkable.

Tho Republic, a daily paper published in tho city of Now York, nml conducted with singular uhility, has hauled down tho neutral flag, under which it started, and now sails under Wino colors. Tlio reasons for this change siro givoli nt length and with groat force. Tho editor says, that when it was determined to associate tlio Republic with a political party, the position of tlio country, its political combinations, and tho claims of the respective candidate, becamo tho iminc- diuto mid proper subject of inquiry. The result ofth.it inquiry, so fir as Locofucoism is concerned, is thus clearly stated : The Democratic Party, strange to say, has arriicd within four months of a Presidential contest, without any clear, harmonious declaration of the principles upon wdiieh it purposes to carry on the ndininistra lion of tlio government. It limits itself to a feeble ex pression ol Us dissent lo all ihe propo-ed measures of their opponents, wiiiioin too wm or ine aiiituv to gainsay or disparage ihem. Torn by dissension, aban doned by many of lis most prominent members, di wded by disputes, an I split up into fragments as end less as thev aro vatious, the Democratic tnrtv. once so poweitul, lullucnli il and prosperous, pas dwindled into lllSlglltltCallCO mid ulllio-t -milt inlo nlir-yinee The nominee of this disordered baud for Ihe Presi dency, Mr. Polk, offers no claim upon which to re nruk, and all ill il need be aul of him as a politician, is, ihat nothing can be said for or Hgamst h;m, as his public com so all'ords hardly anything winch consti tutes political service, or inal.es thu reputation if a statesman.

Even then, when tho tie ofa common cause, and tho feeling of mutual regard pro duced by a common deliverance from a com

mon danger, operated witli unabated power to draw tho States together as brethren mu tually dependent on each other, the embar rassments arising fiom conflicting interests and discordant views of policy, presented obstacles in the way of tho establishment of tlio Union, which wero well nigh fatal to ils consummation. Our fathers found them- mon interest in the General Government.' Politically wo nru divided into snperalo Slates, hut, in fact, ns fur ns community of intercourse and association nro concerned, weknow no slate lines. Our country Is boun ded as ono, has been foiighl for ns one, nnd is talked of and gloried in us one. Wo have not learned to speculate, for wo have not permitted ourselves seriously to think what wo should do 111 tho event of dismember ment. Il has been deemed sacrilego otalk of such a calamity. Wo liavo hitherto loll tat our glories past mid prospective were bottomed on our glorious Union, and there was a day when ho who was suspected of unfaithfulness to il, was tried as a traitor, nnd that too after having held the second office in the Government. But that day has gono by. Wo aro re moved moro than half a century from the common trials of tho revolution, and the pirit of .selfishness, overcoming tho attach ment to tlio Union, has dared to talk with brazen eiTiontnry of dissolving the Union cc mcntcd by revolutionary blood, to escape fiom alleged grievances on the part of the government elected by till, on tho terms of the original compact. Once this spirit has risen so high as to require a show of force to drive it back, but now at last, after having smothered for twelve years its rage nt tlio ig nominy of its former defeat, it has again as sumed ils fiendish shape, nnd without dis-' guiso proclaims Its determination to reduce to undistinguisliablo chaos, the fair propor tions of ourjgootlly heritage, unless its de mands, the demands ofa weak and insolent minority, be instantly complied with I Tho cause of this tinicasonablo require ment is at hand. It is slavery. The curse which our fathers witli sorrow and misgiving felt compelled to wink at for tlie sake of peace in forming the Constitution, lias clung to us " like a wot 111 i' tho bud" from that u,iy 10 tuts, staining Willi its lialclul Hue tlie whole track of our pathway, and throwing its moral blight over our policy, at the saino time that it lias given us a class of men, ren ilercd tyrants at homo by the possession of unlimited power, and who aro too prone to carry tho insolence thus engendered into their intei course with their equals ami superiors. In the region where such men live lias love for the Union grown weaker nnd weaker un til it has turned to hatred, and openly threat ens dissolution. If proof of tlie debasing and demoralizing influence of .slavery wetc needed, here it is, written in darkness on the light of Heaven. Chagrined, disappointed and enraged, because by retaining an insti tution nt war witli the law of God, and the conscience of m ill, they aro compelled to see their northern brethren outstrip them in in dustry, population, wealth and consequent weight in the federal balance, ihey turn round, instead of going to work to overtake them in honorable competition, and fiercely demand the consummation of a measure fa tal, disgraceful, unjust nod iniquitous, for the restoration of their own power, or denounce, in the event of refusal, a dissolution of tlie Union of these Stales! Where but among slaveholders could impudence mount up to such 11 pitch of absolute sublimity ? Why, these children of bowie-knife chivalry talk as ii tliis great Union, this gigantic system thus interwoven wilh the welfare and desti nies of twenty millions of people, w is a mere football for southern slave drivers lo play with fler dinner !

The ohslinato and reck less arc denouncing thorn as traitors, but tho day is at hand which shall vindicate their prudence and sagacity, and consign to ob livion tho blind parti.ans who in the infatu ation of false security cling to their fatal he resies to the last. Tho Evening Post is making a nolle and manful strugglo to save its party from the mortification of disgrace superadded to dc feat. But it is in vain. The Plebeian, tho Argus and other papers nre committed past hope to annexation, and they, backed by nearly the whole of the lesser lights are di: tcrmined to stake till on tho issue. They will be defeated by such a vote, as will we trust, prove a salutary lesson to demagogues anil political hucksters through all timo lo come.

Tho cause of freedom finds its ft lends and supporters, as a general rule among whigs ; and whatever accessions the third party may have, will bo so much with drawn from tho whig party, and in just that proportion increase the chances for Polk's election.

When the present tariff bill was before Congress, in 1812, and its fato extremely doubtful, petitions weio got up 111 various quarters urging ils passage. Fearful that this course, if adopted by tlie people in in terest, without reference to party, would se cure the adoption of tho bill, Eastman, of the Age, camo out openly and attacked it denouncing it as fraught with ruin to tho wool-grower, and imploring his political friends to stand aloof, tor weeks Ins col umns were filled with the most inflammatory appeals on the subject, and we quote tho roadcr a sample of some columns of similar import, to which wo might refer him. From tho first we warned the people, lliot Me tarili'of Jorvis, Pauie.f- Co., was expressly for tin benefit of their interest, and wo asked Ihem not to petition for the establishment, of such n Innll-ic-cause it would be detrimental to their welfare. 1 lie result has shown that we wero correct about tho matters for, vvlnlo llie iarui on. ,.iu, tho manufacturer, it leaves the troo.ffroire entirely unprotected, niurii"i,"ll,""""",i" .'.. your hand, off the V.;V:?;':';"'C'iV!',r.?T7',. abp IvvrSTEO FOB TIIH Hl.M.I 1 1 Or Itll.JIAiN IJhMCTUIlKll AND THRKUIN OV TIIK WOO I.

' The extraordinary emergency then has nriBen m which resistance is demanded. Tho debtee of neces sity exists which justifies resistance, nnd renders it lawful nnd commendable. There arc, however, rea sons which counsel forbearance until after iho Presi dential decdon. "Tno portion of tlio Dnnocralic party, whoce opin ions coincide with ours and whoso co-operation wo ought to hope for, nre nctively engaged 111 the Presi dential canvass.

That portion of the democratic party al luded to above "whoso opinions coincide with ours," is doubtless tlio northern locofocos, who, it seems, are promising those nullilieis that they shall have things their own way, in case of Polk's election. Hut tint is too improbable a result to afford Mr. Holmes much consolation ; and ho seems to Imvo made up his mind to await the election of Mr. Clay with philosophic composure. Ho seems to givo his notlhcrn allies full ciedit fur their intention to surrender the protec tive system ; but evidently regards them as rather green to expect Polk's election ! klTndalls.
