I have never recognized, and never will recognize, the right of the first Ijody of people that can throw themselves into a Territory, to keep oi.t or drive out by nnfrindly legis lation everybody who disagrees with tinm in opinion.

The 1 iuiore Convention adop+s and affirms the Cincin nati platform, their constitutional restrictions must be respected and enforced by every branch of the Federal Government. What those constitutional restrictions are, is refer red to the decision of the Supreme Court, created for the purpose of deciding questions or cases arising under the Constitution and laws of the United States. .Judge DOCOLAS, in his letter of acceptance, ind orses this reso lution, as well as all the others, and thereby pledges himself to carry out in good faith the propositions contained in it.

If, therefore, the Supreme Corrt of the Uni ted Slates have decided, or shall decide, that the people ofthe South have a rigbt under the Constitution to go to the Territories, and carry with them that which is property in their own St'tte. and so hold it there as such, then if any legishiion is nec^s- arv to iu comt Icte enjoyment, Judge Dorc.i,ASdeclares that s-ich legislation must be hud.

The amount appropriated was $3},003. Sen. Trumbull is filling a series ofbppoint ments in Illinois. The last is at Monmouth, Aug. 22. It would be a good idea to invite him to pay us a visit about that time. The New Census gives Illinois 1,800.000 to 851,000 in 1850, probably entitling her to 15 Congressman. It is impossible to keep pace with the "Ir repressible conflict" among the Democrats of this county, or to sufficiently wonder at the diversified shapes it assumes. Last week the readers of the Union of this city, were gratified with the perusal of a three colum3d article, wherein the editor of that pa-perpitch ed into the clique of Ottumwa, to an extent rtnd Reserved, That during the existence of territorial governments, the measure of re strictions, whateyer it tnav be, imposed bv -p., the Federal Constitution on the power of the statement that if thischqiu, ... territorial legislature over the subject of the rcciSnise as the most active prominent lead as the same has en or, shall hereafter be finally determined bv the Supreme Court of the United States, should be rcspected by all good citizens, and should le enforced with promptness and fidelity by every branch of the General Govern nt. What this resolution means, and how it should be construed, we will not attempt to say. AVe lcrft'c this task to abler hands.— The Hon. John W. Noel!, now a rej re-:ent ntivc in Congress, from the Seventh District of Missouri- -and who, by the way, is a fierce champion for Douglas—in a communication to the Missouri Republican,whichisDouglas* leading organ in the west,-says in a style quite refreshing for the state out of our pnver ith the sight of this bill of indictment against the wicked clique who have done so many naughty things, owing to its length, and to the fact that it is no concern of ours, except as an item of currenc political intelli gence, and we dismiss tlie subject with the whom we crs of the Democracy in this county from the time whereof the memory of man ruueth not to the contrary, are one half as selfish, cor rupt and knavish, as they are represented in the article allud*1 to, it is no wonder that they are troubled with a conflict, seemingly so irrepressible. Can it be possible that men who have stood so high their party, and have been so honored, coull stoop so low and practice such arts and subterfuges to secure office, as the clique are represented in said article as doing. Verily it is melun cholly to think of! Th? "Irrepressible conflict" is raging with irrepressible fury in the ranks of the disin tegrated Democracy, becoming apparently more and more bitter every day. If things go on the way they are now tending untie the day of the election, they will present a beautiful spectacle to the rest of mankind. On the whole," Breckinridge is gaining in both sect ons. It is now certain that two electo ral Democratic tickets will be run in every State. In this State, a mass convention will meet August 22 1, at Davenport, to nomi nate a Breckinridge & Lane electoral and „„1 1 Irhnois has a strong Brcckiuridge Ticket in the field. Indiana is to have one, as is Ohio, Pennsylvania, and tntny other States that have been heard from. In New York, Dan iel S. Dii.kinson heads a powerful movement for Breckinridge. This latter gen'deman de fivered a speech recently in New York, from which, as it doubtless exposes tho animus of the Breckin. idgc wing of the Democracy at the North, we make extracts iu another part of this paper. It will hi seen that he has drawn the sword and thrown the scab bard away. Well,'we hope they will both whip. At any rate, when rogues fall out, honest men get their dues. We copy from the Hawk Eye, a letter {^ora Col. Curtis, to which we invite attention.— It m.eta and successfully refutes sundry misrepresentations in circulation touching the action of the Pacific Railroad committee. These attempts to injure Col. Curtis, will recoil on the heads of his calumniators. No tnemlier of Congress did more for the Pacific Radroad, the IIo:i»estead, and other measures in which this District is interested, than he did, and he would have succeoded if he had not been met at every turn by a solid array of Democratic opposition to all of them. These Democrats are a pretty set of fellows to call in que-tion the acts and doings of Col. Cur tis iu behalf of measures, in which the State of Iowa is interested But they can't hum bug the people. They know Col. Curtis acts efficiently and votes right all the time, and they wiil sen.' him back witb big en dorsement of his course. WFIJ WANT TO Bar?—The Albany Even ing Journal has the following, which is lib eral enough to sat sfy tho most timid of the Doug'asites who are accustomed to "back up their assertions:" If any Do jglas men want to bet, here is a chance for hi:a.

Col. Cnrtts* Letter* Ki: ki"R, July 19, 189(V—C. Dr sham E«q.~ f'r Sir: Iain told that it has been reported in Buvlington that I had presented the Pacific Railroad i»v a map. which ignores Burlingtutt-and exalts Keokuk. I send you the report and map whieh yoa will see do no such thin *. Burlington and Keokuk are both on the irtap equally plain. None of the Iowa roads are presented except the Rock Island road, because the map only intends to show the Pacific Jtuilroadsurveys as made by the War Department prior to 1S53, and tho lines then known as Eastern connections. The map speaks for itself, shewing that I did not prepare it and the War Department did. You will sec the boundary line of the -State laid down from near Keokuk, whi :h some have no doubt, taken f«r a proposed Railroad, whereas you will see by inspection it is no such a thing. I think, therefore, I am clear of all sellish imputation in this re spect. having sh nvn that 5 did not make the map, and second,that it does exalt not Keokuk over Burlington, as it .places bdh on the same footing. In point of fact, the map only attempts to present accurately the routes found to be practicable wet of the Missis sippi when tin- surveys were uiade and the bill and map show that any of our Iowa or Missouri roads may, by being prolonged, be come equally entitled to claim preference after being united with the main trunk.— Anion'* competitors, no road stands fairer than the Burlington road, as it runs directly towards the Platte Valley, where I suppose the main trunk will run and Mr. Corning, who was on the committee with ma when the map was prepare.!, and who is a large stockholder in the Burlington road, was ful'h satisfied with the fa'rn a"d bi"' The passage of tho "Pacific Railroad bill, and the commencement of that great western outlet, will give new impulse to all the Iowa and Missouri roads now progressing west ward. and secure their early completion to the Missouri river and their progress be yond. The eastern stockholders will see a way is opening through the plains and mountains to the wealth of India, and they will per ceive the vast advantage to them for our roads to secure an early connection. The progress of such a work will give employ ment to thousands now thrown out of work and the supplies needed for feeding the em- plovers will be furnished by our fartnvrs in fowa and Missouri. In view of the ul( imate T* a s o s s i e o o i n e e e a e s s u o local interests. The bill, therefore, starts a road at any point on the western border of the State, and also another branch at any point on the border of Missouri, which tlie future stockholders may prefer—the two branches converging so as to unite a* one stem within two hundred miles of the Mis souri river. All our roads can be connected let the main line start as it may. We have enough outsrdc jealousies to contend with on this subject withoirt rais ing any among ourselves. The hill, map and reports of inaj irities an I minoriti \s are to be printed and circulated bv Congress, and the subject is made a special order, and must vne up for consideration in the House ou the third Tuesday of n *xt December. I consider any attempt to prejudice the matter by fal-e presentations and appeals to local prejudice, a most pernicious assau't 011 the interests of the State, for I sincerely be lieve united efforts and earnest exertions will secure the early commencement of a great en advance railroad products and develops the vast resources of the whole West.

But for raising I stock it beats tlie world. I never saw as fine cattle or as good beef at the north as are found here. They are never fed by man. I Horses do as well, and are never fed, al I though at times American horses require it. All work-horses must be fed some, duriri- i They should be fed from five to thirty days There are but few people, however, who feed anything. I speak of what should be. It would be impossible to feed the roving wild btock of rses and cattle. Let all who emigrate to Texas bring none but good mares—horses are not worth, in reality, half as much as mares. Let the wagon and harness be new. and of the best quality. 11 is foolish to bring an old wagon and harness—a good team is the thing. Most of the Ottumwa people saw my out-fit. 1 I'and. I spead of this that those who knew the team can readily sec that "old plugs" wrould have sold for only ab iut half as much. Texas is a dry country, little or no fruit, few vegetables, no luxuries, but a great place for lazy people. Yours, truly, W. iairbanh^ Series.

EDIT#R The past fortnight has been a somewhat eventful one. The events of the past two weeks will long be remem bered with pleasure by the Republicans, and with sorrow by the few remaining Demo crats. There is an organization in this city known by the name of the National Union Democratic Club of Fairfield," which was organized sometime previous to the assem bling of the Baltimore Convention. It was organized u ider a pledge to support the nominees of the Baltimore Convention and its first meeting, after the organization, was to be a grand Mass Meeting in the Park, to ratify the nominations of tho said Conven-' tion. After that august assemblage had been in session about a week, tho telegraph announced the result, which was, a double ticket— one for the North and one for the South. "The National Union Democratic Club" was in a dilemma. It took the Douglas horn, however, and immediately issued flaming hand-bills, inviting the Dem ocracy of old Jefferson to come out on the 30th of June to ratify the nomination of Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, for Presi dent and Benjamin Fitzpatrick, of Alabama, for Yice President of the United States. The Democrats, or a portion of them, came into town to 'ratify,' but found out, when they arrived, that Mr. Fitzpatrick had declined, and that Ilcrschul V. Johnson, of Georgia, had been substituted. This change, how ever, did not make any difference—they 4u„.. ,, ioi.stodo meetmg, however, it was ascertained that a ion Democratic Club" had the manliness to declare lhat as Mr Dou ks back down fro,n hls diildren.

I suppose, however, they will let the matter rest, inasmuch its their party is dead, and the funeral nennons are being preached all over the country. Gen eral Dodge preachcd tho funeral sermo i hero, on Tuesday evening last, to a very few mourners. The Wide Awakes turned out on Satur day evening last, and had a very large and enthusiastic meeting in the Park. It is esti mated that there were five or six hundred person at the meeting. Eloquent and ef fective speeches were made by Messrs. O, W. Slagle, William Ilampson and J. F, Wilson. XIr. Slagle spoke of the developments made by the investigations of Covodc's Com mittee, and urged the importance of hurling1lor, 1 n. ,a ever tj ea(** every principleof cotnmon fairness «o re- of his predecessors, who also swore to govern Present engaged in the study of the law.— jespaid.

There are reported discoveries from the west slono of the rantre, one hundred miles from California Gulch, ofmarvelous richness. imps are said to have been found tho size of hens' eggs. There is considerable excitement existing here in regard to the United States mail for this place. Tlu letting is considered to be the same as a failure, and a vet in is called to .a lopt. measures for relief. Thelettin to Cruce & Co. is considered a dodge of^ th" Express Company to retain th s mail in their own hands, an I whether the conjecture is true remains to be seen.
