Ingersoll, Esq. uZl™ «-r son we thought never spoke better, and we have heard him a number of times. He cer tainly furnished additional evidence of talents of the highest order. Col. Warren's cffoA was such a one, as a close student of politics, thoroughly posted in pending issues, and a shrewd politician only could make. It was decidedly the most damaging Humming up of the rascalities of a corrupt and bankrupt administration we have heard, and left an impression which cannot be effaced firom the minds of all who heard him. In the cveni ig a large meeting at the Court House was addressed by Messrs. L. D. Ingersoll and J. F. Wilson. Mr. Wilsori's speech on this occasion, was somewh it breef er than his effort in the daytime, butwasde voted to other topics, and was exceedingly Happy and impressive. We should not omit to notice the friends from the county who came in from several Townships in procession with flags and ban ners waving to the breeze. The Kirkville friends, especially, made a tine appearance, and reflected great credit upon that banner Republican Township, where they can give 100 majority.

The Douglas men here who fancy Breek enridge will decline the nomination of one rf the Baltimore Conventions, are calculating without their host.

They accordingly very wisely abstained from speaking, leaving a solitary bonfire and tallow dips, which shone with i a pale and sickly light, and early went out, to do the ratifying in silence. The boys with their crackers of course enjoyed the fun and cheered far Douglas and Lincoln miscellane ously. The lidito*. OTIR'M\V A, IOWA,:: J«» 2H» FOU VUKS11»KNT.

The race will bo exciting between them, but it is too soon entirely to bet on cither, as between themselves, although en tirety safe at any time to bet that both will be beaten by Honest Old Abe Lincoln. How many platforms these two national Democrat* stand on, is not clear, but it it is safe to pre sume that they will be furnished with an assortment to suit every degree of latitude. Seriously, it would seem to us about time I for all sensible, candid Democrats to pause jand relleet upon what absurdities their party leaders are forcing them, and what all their pretended nationality, and freedom from sectionalism amounts to.

MA-XCFACTIHINU AT A KXCY.—We very much interested and instructed a few days ago, by a careful examination in all its departments, ofthe extensive carding, spin ning and weaving Factory of our industri ous and enterprising fellow citizen, Mr. John Zulauf, at Agency City. We there saw in operation a large amount of- machinery of the most approved and perfect kind used in this line of manufactures, and what most in terested us was the sight of some half dozen or more members of Mr. Zulauf.s family, usefully employed in the various deprati^ents of the busim's-i. We don't believe a more interesting family group can be found in the country. With such a mill, and so ably austained, Mr. Zulauf succeed. We r» sure he deserves ifc S|?o 'cli. question and differ only as to the mode of exercising the power. The one demands the intervention of the Federal Government for slavery, and the other against it. Each ap peals to the passions and prejudices of his section against the peace and harmony of the whole country. (Cries of "that's so," and applause.) On the other hand, the posi tion of all conservative and Union-loving men is or at least ought to be that of non-in tervention of Congress with slavery in the territories. Cries of that's the true doctrine and applause. This was the pasitionof the Democratic party in the Presidental contest of '48, North or by South -whether for or against sly very? tends directly to diunion. Upon this indentiral question areattempts tlbw being made to destroy the Democratic party, because the minority of intsrvertion ists could not intimidate the majority into an abandonment of the doi'frine of non-inter vention. They have secedcd from the or ganization of the Deinocra*ic parly and are endeavoring to form a new party in hostility to it. [Cries of "let them go, we can whip the disunionists, North and South," Ac.,]— Secession from the Democratic part)' means secession from the Federal Union. [Cries of "that's so" and applause.] Those who en list under the session banner now will be expected on the 4th of March next to take up arms against the constituted auttRrr ities in certain contingencies. We are told in a certain event the south must forcibly re sist the inauguration of the President elect, while we find those who are loudest in their threats of such resistance engaged in the scheme to divide and destroy the Democratic party thereby securing the eleet:on of the Republican candidate. Does not this line of policy look to disunion? [Cries of "yef^" Does not this line of policy look to dis union (cries ofyes!) it can't be effectual.— Intelligent people must be presumed to un derstand the tendency and consequences of their own action say the Scceders fail to perceive that their efforts to divide and de feat the Democratic partv, if successful, must lead directly to the secession of the Southern States. I trust that they wffl me what ranst be the result of such a policy and return to the organization and* platform of the party before it is too late to save the country. [Applause. The Union must be preserved. [The Con stitution must be maintained inviolate, [re newd cheering] and it is our mission, under Divine Providence, as I b°lieve, to save the Constitution and the UniOn from the as saults of the Northern Abolitionists and Southern Disunionists. [Enthusiastic ap plause and three cheers for Douglas.] My friends, I have detained you too long, and will close by renewing the expression of iny sincere thinks. Manjr voices—Goon, go on! nglas—No. It is nearly the Sabbath morning. A were voice—We will listen to you a year, Judge. Douglas—I merely made my appearance to acknowledge the compliment paid m-j, by so Iarg3 a meeting at this late hour of the night. I recognize among you the faces of many old friends, and a large number of my imme diate neighbors from Illinois as well as oth ers from almost every State in the Union. I only regret my house is not large enough to enable me to invito you in and take you in dividua Iv by the hand. (A voice, your heart is big enough.) 3 times 3 cheers were given for Stephen A. Douglas as the next Prosident. The procession nextprooeded to the head quarters of Gov. Fit* patrick, sad afforded WASHINGTON, June 24.—Lntc last night a* procession was formed at the Douglas head quarters, and proceeded to the Railroad sta tion to receive the Illinois and other Baltimore Convention delegates, who were accompanied by the Great Western Band, and catne by a -penal train. They repaired to the resi dence of Mr. Douglas, and complimented him with a serenade anfl huzzas. In acknowl edging these evidences of their friendship, he said, fellow citizens, I thank you for this manifestation of your kindness and enthusi asm. The circumstances under which this vast crowd has assembled, simultaneously and without previous notice, demonstrates ati earnestness of feeling which fills my heart with gratitude to be the chosen standard bearer of the only pollitical organization that is conservative and powerful enough to save the contry from abolitionism and disunion, is indeed an honor of which any citizen m-'y be proud. I am fully in pressed with the responsibility of the position, and trust that Divine providence will impart to me the strength :md wisdom to comply with all its requirements (Applause.) Our beloved coun try is threatened with fearful sectional an tagonism, which places the Union itself in imminent'peril. This antagonism is produ ced by the effort in one section of the Union to use the Federal Government for the pur pose of restricting and abolishing slavery, and a corresponding effort in the other sec tion- for the purpose of forcing slavery into those regions where the people do not want it. (Cries of "that s true.'1) The ultra men in each sec! if n demand Congressional inter ference upon the subject in the territories.— They agree in respect to the power and duty pr.piiety in voting with the Democratic ofthe Federal Government to dbntrol the^Jjiy- But I am indifferent as to whether T52 and 50. This was the position upon which Clay, Webster, Cass and the friends of the Union of all pollitical affinities of that day established the Compromise of 1810 upon this common ground of nonintervention.— They contended with and put to flight the Abolitionists ofthe North and the Secession ists of the South in that memorable contest. [Cries "will do it again" and three cheers.] It was on this common ground of noninter. vention that Whigs and Democrats agreed to stand in their respective party platforms of 1852, and each party adhered faithfully to this principle so long as its organization was maintained, and the Democrats stilj maintain it as the key stone of the arch which binds the Federal Union together, and to this cardinal principle of non-intervention has the Democratic party renewed the pledge of its faith at Charleston and Balti more. [Cheers and cries of "we'll keep the faith."] As the chosen representatives of that great party, it is my fixed purpose to keep the faith and redeem that pledge at a'l hazards and r.nder all circumstances.

We have received the following commu nication from Geo. W. Yoeirn, Esq., of this place. Mr. Yocura has heretofore acted with the democratic party—having bee I ne of its leaders and principal speakers in this county for two or three }Cars past. The document speaks for itself, and to it we in vite the attention of the reader: MR. EDITOR :—It has already become pub licly known that my opinion in respect to the power of Congress to govern the territo ries is utterly at variance with the doctrine of Squatter Sovereignt}', and little more in harmony with that other theory insisted up on by the greater majority of the Democrat ic party. Any system or theory that will extend the institution of slavery beyond its present limits, can never meet my approval nor obtain my support. Entertaining this view of slavery, and holding that it is a crea ture of local law, totally incapable of exist ance beyond local regulation, I £an see no popular sovereignty or theplave code theory shall finally gain the asccndancy and pre vail as the settled licy of the Democratic party foi they are equally in violation of right, and cannot endure and the elevation of one over the other, will bj but a tempo rary triumph, insignificant in its effect, ex cept as it operates to extinguish its own vitality. As for uny real 'difference in the two theo ries held by the opposing forces of the dem ocratic party, there is none. Whatever the theorj' of the one or the other may be, the practical effect of both, will be to over-ride every barrier to the progress of slavery, and introduce it into every territory belonging to the United States. What, then, is the dif ference in the the theory of the two factions both arrive at the same conclusion by a little different process. Is it not verily a distinc tion without a difference! If both will at tain the same end, and purge the territories of freedom, can any man bi *ane and'say he has a preference which shall do it If sla very is to be forced in and freedom is to- be forced out of the territories, (which is inevit able if the Democratic party continues in power,) who will be captious enough to in sist that either the one or the other of its belligerent factions shall be set apart for the work? lam indifferent. GEO. W. YOCUM. Oskaloosa, June 18th, 1890. A Lie Nailed. Those of Mr. Lincoln's opponents who at tempt to slander liiin or prejudice the public mind against him by drumming up charges derogatory to his personal honor or official integrity, will have the'.r labor for their pains. It is a mean and a despicable busi ness they are engaged in, and its effect will than object of their ma lice. 1)C fiir morc doctrine of non-intervention. Intervention i dama'div to the means disunion—intervention whether by unfortunate to themselves The Chicago times, hard op for manly ar gument against Mr. Lincoln, is already re sorting to the cowardly resource ofpersonal vi tuperation. In the very outset of its on slaught, however, it is unfortunate, as it is proven by the following official document that is sent us from Washington TO THE PUBLIC. My attention has been called to a state ment which appeared in'the Chicago Times, as editorial, on the 29th day of May, 1800, that Hon. Abraham Lincoln, while a mem ber of tho 30th Congress, purchased three pairs of boots, "they being paid for out of the public money." by his order, and charged to hiin as Stationery,—and further, that the said boots are charged to bis account on the books of the House of Representatives. Knowing these charges to be false, I deem it*my duty to make the following statement, under oath:— 1st. The stationery used by members of the House of Representatives is furnished them by the Post-Master of the House, who settled with them. 2nd. A ledger account is kept the several members and the Post-Master, and every article is charged to them on the day it is obtained. 3d. The book of the Post-Master r1 t', House of Representatives of the 30th Con gress. by virtue of my office, are now in my possession. I have carefully examined the same, and therein an account against the Hon. Abraham Lincoln, in which the usual items of stationery are charged to him—but there arc no such items c.hurgcd as alleged bv the writer ofthe article ia tho Chicago Times. between I therefore pronounce tlw allegations sheer fabrications, devoid of truth, and des titute of foundation in truth.
