When an election occurs, demagogues suddenly ike a deep interest in these men. Runners are sent out from the Court House to drum the n up, and bring them in to get their papers, the expense in$ paid for th'/m. They not unfrequently are importuned and'persuaded to apply for their papers, even when thev know they a,-e not entitled to them. Instances in poiiit have occurred here within a few days, and the parties are known. Than, besides, the Cjunty Judge has no authority to natural ize. If there ever was any doubt about it, that doubt was removed at the recent session «f tha Supreme Court, denying that power, which everybody is presumed to know.

In short, Republicanism and to prove this he cited Joseph Hayne is acknowledged to be the the fact that Stockton drew up resolutions sustaining the Compromise measures of 1850. Here is a passage from his letter, for which we are indebted to the Gate City.— Hear Hon. D. F. Miller: "I am radif ally onti-slavory in my polit1 cal sentiments, and have always been so.— During the twenty years I acted with the Whi.jr party I never failed, whether in pri vate or public, to bear my testimony s.gainst the accursed wrong of human slavery."

Blair returned to thc city yes terday, from an electioneering tour through Pennsylvania and Illinois, and addressed a large crowd at Soullard Market hist evening, in reference to the late presence of Douglas here, and his reply to questions propounded by the Bulletin as to his (Douglas) alleged complicity with Blair,to give thc latter Greens seat in the Senate. Ac. Douglas said in his speech here, that the Republicans make a false charge, and call upon the Breckinridge men to swear to it. These men go around and retail what they pretend to have been private conversations, furnishing them toBreekinridge and Repuh lican papers, and saying that if I will relieve- jn I they will speak out. DoUg|as intended to i i„ Cop. gu,ge, imply by the above Un­ ,h„ I ever sought an interview with him upon political subjects, and furnished Breckinridge papers with charges against him, based upon that conversation, and sought to have myself called as a witness to prove the cltnrge, he is guilty of a gross and wanton filsehvxi, anil I cim produce the most conclusive evidence to prove it upon him. I never furnished Breckinridge papers nor any one else with charges against Doug las, based upon what he said—nor did I communicate with any one upon the subject, except in accordance with his own vie vs and suggestions, and to forward his wishes, and I am not even responsible from the fact that the substanoe of the letter to B. Grata Brown was bruited about and made public—when asked subsequently and after I had been as sailed by Douglas partisans, I declined to say anything about the matter. I should not now say what I have except that a presi dential monomaniac has no license to vilify and slander those who encouraged him in the only gooi act of his life. Thc Douglas and Breckinridge processions hst night had a collision, just as the latter were dispersing fi-om their club rom. The accounts published charge the Doublas men as the aggressors, though the Breckinridge mcn were vicarious. Thc police alarm was gived, the fir3 department cal!el out and considerable excitement prevailed, but no serious damage was done. A special despatch to the Republican from Boonville says, Senator Green, in his speech there yesterday, declared that but for Douglas Kansas would have been a slave State. Con gressional protection to Slavery was the only doctrine to preserve the government, but he would support Douglas if it was the only chance to defeat Lincoln. He did not think Lincoln's election cause for secession, which was another name for revolution. LOUISVILLE, Oct. 30.—This morning's Journal says, a remarkably shrewd ar.d well informed politician, recently from Washing ton, states th it some principal Breckinridge lead rs from the South, including Wigfall of Texas, and Judge Meek of Ala., agreed last Thursday upon a plan of action in case of Lincoln's election, viz South Carolina, with in 30 days after the election would declare herself independent, and a me-jsenger sentto Washington asking recognition. If recog nized, other Southern States would follow suit, and after a sufil .-ient number of South ern States is recognized, a Southern confede­ racy would be formed. ST. LoWs, Oct. 30.—Sertator Crittenden addressed a large audience, composed of men from all parties at the Court House, last ni^ht. He eulogiz -d Douglas as a national man, a statesman, and his course in op* osi tion to the Lecompt n Constitution—he ur^ed a union of all men to vote for H,as the only candidate whose siocess would give peace to the country. He could see no reme dy whatever in dissolving the Union or sece ding from it, and though the Republican party may elect their President, we can out vote them and prevent harm from being ne. The South can find constitutional safety in the Union and preserve that greatest blessing for this country. He conclu led —It will IH» my prayer that this Union may last beyond any calculation. LEAVENWORTH, Oct. 80.—The Timet has information from Southern Kansas, that 60 dragoons, under Capt. Sturgis, accompanied by Indian stent Cowan, had been driving the settlers from what is known as the Chero kee neutral lands. The 7 imrs correspondent states that seventy-four houses hnd been burned, and the occupants turned out. Much excitement prevailed iu Southern Kansas, but it is thought the statements are greatly exige latcd. A meeting of ci»iz°ns of this county was held last evening visc plans for the gene ral relief of the territory. A committee was appointed to solicit immediate aid from the East. Also, a comnvttee was appointed to act in concert with other counties in the matter.

Aubrey has succeeded in recovering 63 of his mules that were stolen by Indians, and in all prob ability that is all he will ever get. Hostile Indians are all around Santa Fee, and the citizens dare not venture any dis tance out for fear of being murdered. There was no news from the army in the mountains in pursuit of the Navajocs. No hostile Indians were seen on the plains, and the news from them is of no importance. LEXIXC.TOX, KW, Oct. 30.—Vice-President Breckinridge authorizes the announcement that the letter published over his signature, purporting to be addressed to Dr. J. T. P. Cohoon, of Elizabeth city, North (Jaroliiu.un der dato of the 5th inst., is a frg 'ry—he has written no such latter. ST. JOSEPH, Oct. 30.—By the pony express this morning, we have advices from Jules burg, 430 miles from here, of one of the most severe storms that was ever known on the Plains, at any season of the year. On th" 2(iih it blew a hurricane, accompa nied by hail, until 3 o'clock p.m., when a heavy snow storm set in the weather rapidly growing eold. Emigrant's trains, line that station on every side, their cattle suffering more than in midwinter. It was thought emigrants below and above Juleshurg would also suffer severely and great loss would ensue. The pony was detained o hours in conse quence. It is blowing here furiously, and has appearance of snow and growing cold. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12.—The pony ex press with St. Louis dates to the 7th inst, was telegraphed from Carson Valley this morning. There is intense anxiety to receive the news of the next express, to the loth, when the result of the Pennsylvania and Indiana elections will be beard. Politicians generally concede that if Foster Is elect -d. California will go for Douglas, while if Foster is defeated, and the other Northum States result in Republican victo ries, California will go for Lincoln. It is generally conce led that Breckinridge is losing ground in California. E. D. Baker, Senator elect from Oregon, is expected to make a tour through California for the benefit of the Republican ticket. Brevet Brig. General Clark, commander of the Department of California, died in this city, to iy, of chronic diarrouha, after two weeks illness. The rainy season has fairly commenced. News from Oregon is unimportant. The Democratic papers of both wing»« of thai party, denounce thc oalition which elected one Republican Senator.
