. BRATTLEBOROi SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1800. KKI'UHLICAX XO.MI.VATIOXS. For President, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, of Illinois. For Vlco President, HANNIBAL HAMLIN, of Maine. THE MIO3PE0T. It l yet too early In the campaign to predict with absolute certainty the result of the next Presidential election, hut it may not he amis to consider the ground upon which the Repub-lican party hopes and expects to achieve a signal triumph, especially as such considerations go far in settling the propiivty and expediency of its nominations. In this examination we shall speak of the contest as one between the republicans and democrats, not taking into the account the "Constitutional Union Party," Inch wc regard of no particular account any way, but which if It achieves any sort of success will do to at the expense of the democrats rather than of the republicans. The republicans have the advantage of being the first in the arena. Having readily adopted a platform and nominated condidntcs in a harmonious, friendly and decorous manner, without njiy bolting or quarrelling to mar the general hnrmnnv. tlipv hai-p full fil-n ufrk In ulitnh In organize their forces before their divided and distracted opponents can take the field. This time will be invaluable for the purposes of a thorough and sjstematic organization. They have another and a great advantage in being harmonious and united. As they rcgaid men subordinate to principles they have no personal bickerings to distract them, no quarrels to settle. Contrast their position in this respect with that of their opponents, The democratic convention sat for nine daj s, and neither nominated candidates nor adopted a platform) its time was passed in brawling; a sixth part of its members soeciScd and set up an opposition branch, and finally an adjournment was made by one w ing to one place and by the other w ing to another place. The moral strength that comes from union and fraternal feeling is all on the side of the republicans. In 18JG, the republicans carried 11 States catting 114 electoral votes. These States they are -sure of now, and of the new State of Minnesota, giving in ail 1 18 electoral votes. There is no reason for supposing that wc shall lose one of them. AVe have carried them all every year since with the two exceptions of Xew York in 1857, and Rhode Island in 1660. The check in Xew York was more than made good at the next election , and in Rhode Island the reverse was a result of a division of the opposition -where the democrats were Inrt the tailpiece of Hie bolting members. Looking at the j acnateatue states, renntvlvauiK, Xew Jersey, Indiana and Illinois, we find the gteatost encouragement. Pennsylvania give n democratic plurality in 1SJG of 83,000, hut twice since then she has declared against the demo crats. In 1638 the popular majority aqaiust . the democrats was 20,000, and it wn I6;0l0 in j 1859. The Pennsylvania legislature is com- I posed of anti-democratic members in the pro- i portion of nearly two to one, mid lier members ' of Congress nre more than four to one oppoi- ; tion. Xew Jersey gave Buchanan a plurality j of 19,000, but the democrats uere beaten there I last year by a majority rfJGOO. In Illinois the : republicans earned the Stale in 1K5S, by over j 1000 plurality over Douglas, although the vote was much larger than in 1850. There was a ! Buchanan vute of 5071, butit.i nct.txpected I by any one that Douglas can .ruckon on that rote noit Jn 1S.1G the democrats carried Indiana by about 23,000 plurality, jet hut year they elected their candidates by lc6s than 2500 plurality. Oren was in 1836 democratic by more than two to c.nc, jet Jit .the "last Congressional election the democratic ean'dldato Aias elected by only 10 plurality. The above data are calculated oipon the basis that the democratic party villi bo united 3n the campaign a basis that has mow but a jjcry faint show for being real. -If by any possibility Douglas is nominated at Italtimoie, there si ill certainly be two democratic candidates in the field, both of which will have tickets in the "de-boteable" States, thereby dividing the democratic vote. In that contingency the Bell and Everett ticket win stand the boat chance of car-rying.atJcast.four Southern States. If JJoug-Jas is not nominated at JJaWmo'c which now seems the most probable result-no one doubts that New Jereey, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Indiana are dure for the republicans by overwhelming majorities. Even Douglas is reported to have said, since the Chicago Convention, that Lincoln will carry Illinois against nny domocrat other than himself by more than -20,000 majority. - The opposition gains since 1858 are ncwiicre offset by democratic gains. They have been progressing steadily and securely. Their umrch has been constantly .onward. The democrats from carrying all but four States in 1652, have been every year losing .ground and dwindling away, until they have become, instead of being proud and defiant, w eak, dispirited, distracted, and demoralized. If this campaign is conducted with 3gor and valor there can be no reasonable doubt of the final downfall of the now dominant 'Party- MIt. LINCOLN'S VIEWS OT SLAVERY. The nomination af Mr. Seward was anxious ly desired by those who .stood squarely on the Philadelphia Platform of 1850, because he was regarded by such a the leprcsentative man of the Republican party. This desire was strength cned and crystaltzed not only by his own pre eminent ability as a statesman, but by the dissatisfaction generally jfelt in the more Northern States to the selection .of Mr. Data or any other man who was not a distinctive Republican. In Vermont, at least, we wanted a live, gemiino Republican for a candidate, one w ho had been known ond distinguished as such. Fortunately iin Mr. Lincoln we bavo a genuine leprcecntii-.livo of our principles. In the memorable Illi-nois campaign of 1858., Mr. Lincoln proclaim-cd his opinions so boldly and held to straight forwaid o course upon oil questions relating to the political bearing of Slavery on this lunti-jient, that his position .cannot be mistaken. The democrats have bunted up these speeches and tbey find two cxtiacts which they parade with great eclat, and which wo are disposed to copy as the best evidence of Mr, Lincoln's soundness on the vital issue of the day. The first is t 'l have ill way listed slavery, audi always believed in cuiisenf ultimate cx'liicllun. Ii 1 were In Con. , .ess, and n votoshuuld conn- vtp on a question whether lavoiy should be piou.blled iu a now territory, in spite nf th Drcd Scott decision, I would vote that It should." But the extract which excites especial notice, and is thought worthy cf many columns of in-"dignant rebuke on the part of our sensitive and patriotic fellow citizens who believe that Slavery has political rights everywhere under the constitution, is as follows i "In my opinion It (agitation) will not ceaso until a crisis shall have been reached und passed. "A homo divided against Itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot tndiiro rniAncntly, half slnvo and half tree. I do Hot expect tho Union to be dissolved I do not expect the house to full, but I do expect It will cense to bo divided. It will become nil one thing, or nit the other. Hither tho opponents of shivery will arrest the further 'pica I of It, and place It where the public mind shall rest In the belief that It Is In the course of ultlmite extinction or Its nil-locate' will puh It forward, till it shall beconio alike law full In sll the Mules old as welt at new north ns well as south." THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES. The following details will be interesting to most of our readers who arc anxious to learn something more of the two men who, if they live arc to fill the highest olliccs within the gift of a free people nfttr tho Ud of March 1801 : Abraham Lincoln is a man of tho people in the strictest sense, haiing sprung from' the humblest ranks if tuch a classification is possible in a country illustrated by such records its his. lie was born in Hardin county, Kv., Feb, 12, 1809) nnd is now, therefore, in the fifty-second year of his iac. Prom early youth he was inured to hard labor, which left him neither much time nor opportunity for mental cultivation. But such natures as Mr. Lincoln's make their own opportunities, as riicis are said to form their own chinticli, so that wherever he was, whether as a laborer in the field, in the saw-mill, getting out rails, or earning, on the Western waters, the title of "The Fntboatman," by which he is still endeared to those who pursue that occupation, he constantly found means to emich his stock of knowledge and strengthen his nutti c powers. Thus he went on, till be acquired sulficient legal information to get admitted to the bar, w hen he took up his residence in Sniingfieid, Illinois, wheie he still dwells. hen the "Hl.ick Ilauk War" broke out in the spring of 1832, Mr. Lincoln was among the first to offer bis services, nnd was elected captain of n company of Illinois volunteers, at the head of which he distinguished himself during thebiief let effective campaign. He was nf-teiwnrd elected four times to the State Legislature, taking decided giound as a Whig of the Henry Clay Se&ool. In 18-10 he was elected a member of the Thirtieth Congiess, where he acted with the Whig party; and at the National Convention which nominated General Scott for President, in June, 1852, ho was elected to represent Illinois in the Central Whig Commit-tre. Yeoman s sen ice did he render in that campaign. When the Itcpublican party was organized, he was among the earliest to enroll himself under its banner and the most effective to fight its battles. In the canvass of 185G he guie the heartiest support to Fremont ond Dayton, and made sonic of the bust speeches that were heard in the Xorthwost. Mr. Lincoln, bowcier, is mainly indehteiHor his national fame to tho Illinois campaign of 1S58, in which he was nut forward to contest the claimsof Mr. Douglas for the United-States Senatorship. That campaign formed on era in our political liistory. By his course against the Lccomiiton iniquity. Mr. Douglas had won the ccl.it of being a better statesman then he had been supposed Xa he, on the one hand, and, on the other, the unreasonable abuse of the pres. cut national administration. Both weie gieat elements of strength belbic the people j and in addition to thun, Mr. Douglas enjo)ed the prestigcof eminent position, extended acquaintance iimong all classes, popular manners, consummate, adroitness as a political tactician, and the sophism of popular sovereignty, which is always very agreeable to men who tio not take the tiouble to scrutinize it thoroughly. To contend ogiunst thesu tremendous odds, there a; peaid iu theJield a plain man, baldly known to the country at lavge, with no resnu'i ces but his intellect, and his home-made tcpmiu',.,., in petsolml sioith. Hut It wn soon uppiu utit that those, who had placed Mr. Lincoln in the breach, knew their man. He met -Mr. Douglas in n .erics of deliatcs which, while they formed a continuous and masterly development of the gieat subjects ill issue, were uniiinled exhibitions of the best qualities of the American "stump." He vanquished Mr. Douglas in logic, in appeals to the unprejudiced, and in wit and humor. He carried the State by a popular inujoiitvx'f .about 1000 ; but on inn to tbegioss-ly unfair appointment of the Legislature, Mr. Douglas succeeded in obtaining his re-election to the Senate. But the reputation of Mr. Lincoln, instead of being dimmed by seeing failure, as w too often the case in politicial life, has grown brighter and larger from Unit day, until it now blazes as a pillar of fire before the lie-publican party Ui guide it forwaid to victory. Hannibal Hamlin, the Itcpublican candidate Jbr Vice-President, was borne in Palis, Oxford Co., Maine, in August, 1809, and is now in the 51st year of his age. He is by profession a lawyer, but for the last twenty-four vcars has been, for much nf the time, in political life From 183G to '1S-10 he was n member of the Legislature. of Maine, and for three of those years he was the Speaker of its House of Rcp- resentatives. In 1843 he was elected n member of Congress, and reelected for the following term. In 18-17 ho was again a member of the State Legislature, and the next year was chosen to fill n vacancy, occasioned by thu death of John Fairfield, in the United States Senate. In 1851 he was reelected for the full term in the same body. Duiing all this period and up to the pasiagc of the Kansas-Xebraskn bill in 1851, Mr. Hamlin was an active and influential member of the Democratic party. His ideas of political consistency were such that he could not go with his party in the repeal of the Mis- souri Compromise. That .act he regarded as a proof that the party, .with which he had been all his life connected, no longer deserved the name of Democratic, and was treacherous to .the principles lie had no Jong cherished. Thence forward hu guie Ills support to the Ilepublicau party. In 1850, ho was nominated for Gover nor of Maine by the Itcpublicans of that State. and after an exciting canvass .was elected by nearly 18,000 majority, it being tho first time Maine had voted any cither than the .Democrat ic ticket since the organization of the State in 1821, savoin 18-10, when it was curried by the Whigs by about GOO majority. On being chosen Governor in .January '1837, Mr Hnniliii resigned theoflieeof Senator which he bad held for nine vears. In the same month he was cgaia elected to the United States Sen ate for six ) cars, ninth office be accepted, resigning the Governorship, lio is still a mem-Ivr of the Senate. This record is an evidence of the confidence wih which he has always been regarded 'by his felioiv-citizei's in Maine. Mr. Hamlin is a man of dignified presence, of solid aliilities, of unflinching integrity, and great executii e talent. Familiar vvilh the business of legislation, he it peculiarly adapted, by the possession of all these qualities, to ,111 beneficially for tho country, and to his own and his party's honor, tho high post from ulu'cJi he has been nominated. Dkjiocuatjc Symimtiiv. In rcvling tho Xew York JJemld, Boston Post, and ulhcr democratic papers since the nomination of Lincoln, a stranger to the politic of ourpn-try would ceilainly believe Win. IL Seward to be one of the leading and most honored men in the demorntie party. The Herald of the 10th, thinking that Mr. Seward woukt bo the Ilepublicau nominee, published an editorial villifjing tbo distinguished Senator in language too coarse and indecent for nny respectable print, Xow the Herald sheds its crocodile tears over the Ingratitude of the llepublicans in not nominating him for the Presidency. The Pott and moro than half of the other democratic papers we have seen, aro profuse in their sympathies for "the representative man of the llcpublican party." Poor fellows! In their new born love for the lcaderin tho ''irrepressible conflict," and their disparagement of tho judgment nf the Itcpublicans in the nomination of Lincoln, we find sufficient proofs, if others were wanting, of the sagacity which resulted in tho selection of "Honest Old Abe" as the leader with whom to win in tho contest against the corrupt and demoralized democracy. THE PLATFORM. An amendment to the second declaration in the Itcpublican Platform as reported by the Committee, was made by George W, Cm lis of Xew York, nnd adopted by the Convention. In tho proceedings published last neck we only gave the declaration as reported by tho Committee) wc now supply the omission. The second declaration reported is as follows ! Sd. That the maintenance of the principles proimtl- f;ated in tho Declaration of Independence nnd cniboj-ed In the federal Constitution, and that the Fed.enil Constitution, the right of the states und the uuion of tue States, must and shall be preserved. The amendment adopted, and which should bo appended to the above is tho following quotation from the Declaration of Indpcnder.cc: And that we reassert "thco. truths to bo sclf-ovl-"dent, thnt nit men are croated cquult that they nro 'endowed by their Creator vvitii vcrtalu iniilicnablo "rights) that these, uniung are life, liberty, nnd the pursuit of happlnes. 'I hat to secure iheo rights, gov-"erunicnts arc instituted among men, deriving their "just powers from tho consent of the governed." The Platform is solid and enduring. It rests on the deep-rooted principles of a true demo cratic government, by which the aggressions of the slave-power nnd the turpitude and treachery of tho democratic party shall be overcome. It recognises the supremacy of Freedom and free institutions. While it carefully affirms the right of each State to control its own institutions without let or hindrance from other States or from Individuals without their jurisdiction, it emphatically condemns the extension of slavery. On the other questions of Homu Industry, Public Lands nnd u Pacific Itailroad it speaks out clearly and i igorously. It is a basis upon which we can all labor, and upon which we are morally certain to conquer. What Tttr.v Sav. In another column we give sample extracts from tho newspapers which have come to hand since the Chicago Convention, indicating the feelings with which the nominations made by the Itcpublicans are received. Wc have vet to meet with n Republi can paper which does not cordially approve of nnd hen tily sustain these nominations. Some would have preferred Seward, others Hates or Chase, had their been nn equal chance for their election, but all concur in the wisdom that dictated the selection and the eminent fitness of the candidates. Even the lluffalo Commercial AJco titer which has been during the last six years the leading Fillmoie American paper in the country, hoists tile names of Lincoln and Hamlin. The democratic press giics utterencc to very discordant sentiments. The more can did portion admit that the ticket is exceedingly strong and one that it will be very difficult to defeat, while othvrs like the Constitution sav substantially: "'lheir candidate for the first office is a mere obscure partizan, utterly un- known in tnc higher annals or American politics, nnd their nominee for the second is u po. itiaan distinguished only by the circumstance in having been successful in retaining office by the betrayal of his party." We are sorry that our democratic friends should feel so bad o en tile unfitness of the Itcpublican candidate, but they must be reasonable and nmember that we nominated not to please but to cliiji them ; and we have been successful. A Dr.MOCUAT hives ax AC'COl'XT or ins SrEM-AitD-sHlP. A meeting of the democrats of thu 8th Congressional district in Massachu setts, was held in Lowell on the evening of the lGth inst., at which Gen. Duller, their delegate at Charleston, gave an account of his stewardship. His constituents complained because he did not support Douglas. The General replied that he voted for him seven times and that he should have voted for him longer had there been any chance for his nomination. He also said that Douglas had but one hundred and twenty-tiro sincere friend in that convention, although under the unit rule he got thirty more votes." It may be well for our democratic friends who have lately had such nn exalted reverence for the Supreme Court to see what Butler thinks of that institution. We copy from the report of his remarks : "Nlneiespectable old gentlemen of the Stiprnmc Court! I mean tosnyiiolhlngiigalnstthetn. 1 know them now, but I want to ask who they will be In ten years? 1 lint i nccordlng In whether Mr. Seward is elected President. I would as soon hive n slave code made by Congress ns by- tho Supreme Court. Yes, sooner: because if it is in.ide bv Congress we can repeal It if we like, but llio decftlon of the (.Vint ie-mains. The Judge are i ot nineuiible to the popular will. They sit for life. It was the li'storv of tho world, and in Knghtnd it had passed into a "proverb, that tho worst laws wero made not by legislatures, but by unjust judges. The EvmnxcE Conclusive. The most con-vincing testimony to the eminent fitness of the Itcpublican nominations nnd the great strength of the Itcpublican ticket, is the universal disquietude which they have excited unionc lheir opponents. " In conceding the probabilities of the defeat of their party the democratic papers administer domestic ndu'cc, according to tho faction of the democratic family to which they belong. Papers in the Douglas interest say that it involves the necessity of nominating Douglas, anil his opponents nre equally certain that if he is nominated at Baltimore, Lincoln will assuredly walk triumphantly over thecourse. For once both sides are correct. It makes no sort of difference whether Douglas, Guthrie, Seymour, or nny other one of the nine hundred and ninety-nine candidates of that party is nominated. Lincoln is hound to win. That may ho 6et down us fixed in the book of fate. What the I'Eori.i: Think. Tho nomina tions of Lincoln und Hamlin are already awaken ing an enthusiastic response which augurs well for the campaign. In all tho principal cities and villages in Jvciv hngland salutes wero fired, in many of them bonfires, music and proces. sions testified to thu popular joy. The gather. ing of the- immense multitude at Chicago nnd the hearty responses there made to the nomina. lions have reverberated throughout the country The Kepublicans hail these signs with the live liest satisfaction. Tho democrats behold in them the hand-writing on the wall, and with sinkiug hearts and tremulous knees read their inevitable defeat Douoi-ak CousTUD Out. Before the meet ing of the Charleston Convention we felt confident that Mr Douglas would bo the democratic candidate for the Presidency. Ho received a majority of the whole vote, and wo had previously supposed that as he withdrew at Cincinnati after Buchanan's vote had reached a majority, all active, personal opposition to his nomination would cease. But In this wc were disappointed. Since the despcrsion of that convention tho war In the Senate between Douglas nnd the Southern Senators has been carried on more bitter than ever. It appears that the Xew York delegation only voted for Douglas under the unit rule. The vote of tho delegation was Douglas 37, Dickinson 20, Guthrie 10, Hunter 2, Drcckcnridce 1, THE CATTLE DISEASE. The terribly cgntagious disease known as pleuro-pcncumonia, which has prevailed extensively in the soulh.w etcrn portion of Worcester County, Massachusetts, has very justly excited great consternation among cattle breeders throjghout Xew England, Tho directors of the various agricultural societies in that State have wisely decided not to hold cattle fairs the present year) and in some towns n police has been organized tn prevent the ingress of cattle from the suspected localities. After destrojing hundreds of infected cattle for the double purpose of preventing the spread and of studying tho disease, the Massachusetts Commissioners have determined not to slay any more at present, but to keep all suspected herds isolated and sec if the disease will not die out for lack of new cases. There is however danger in such nn excitement of unnecessary alarm. People will be too ready to imagine or suspect the existence of pleurii-pncumonia if they havo a beef sick from any one of the ailments to which horned cattle arc usually liable. Indeed we have seen reports of cattle being taken sick with the pleurn-pncu-moni.i both in Maine and in Connecticut ; in both cases the diseased animals were immediately slaughtered hut no traces of the suspected disease were visible. We believe there have been no well authenticated cases of this disease nmong any other animals than those in which it can be tinced by contact directly back to the infected rattle imported into Belmont. If no cattle that have been exposed tu the contagion are brought into this State there seems to be no well grounded reason for apprehending any cases of tho.disease here ; nor with proper care in preventing their ingress need the operations of our agricultural socitics be Interrupted on thi account. Unfortunately for the limiting of the disease it was communicated when the the cattle were herded together in )ards or confined in a common stall. Xow that the season has arrived when they can be turned out to grass with plenty of pure air, pure water, nnd exercise, there is reason to believe that many of the diseased cattle will recoier entirely from their distressing ailment. We are glad that the wholesale slaughter has stopped and that recuperative agencies will be thoroughly tested. In several parts of the world as Belgium nnd South Africa the ravages of this disease have been effectually prevented by innoculation. The preventative is surely worth trving by those whose herds may be likely to take the disease from conta- "The InitEfr.Kssim.E Conflict" which Mr. Seward predicted has already commenced in the United States Senate between Senators Davis and Douglas. The democrats scouted the idea of this conflict, but it is more than likely to be the tlfaltt ttr-llicm.- -- A Silly ltfjiou. Some of our democratic papers state the idea that Senator Seiiurd was about to resign ids office of United States Sen-ater iu consequence of his disaffection in not being nominated for the Presidency. So far from this being true the Auburn Haiti Adcerti-Her comes out for the nominations, in an article said to bale been written by the distinguished Senator, iu a truly gallant nnd enthusiastic manner. T iik I't-.si'i.T IN W'l-coxMx. The official canvass fir Chief liutice In Wi-eonsin was finally clo-e I tho bitter part of hit week, and shows that llixon, the lleinociutic nominee, is elected by 3t.r, mnjoiity. Argus. This same Dixon is one of the most enthu siastic supporters of Lincoln und Hamlin in Wisconsin. If the democrats will nlwais nom inate such candidates they will stand a fair chance of electing their nominees. Kxi-LAXATOiiY. It will be seen in the report of the Chicago Convention that in several instances half a vote was cast. Pennsylvania had twice the number of delegates to which she was entitled, and in case of disagreement each set cast a half vote. Moue Administration ConuurrioNs. The Coiodc investigation is unpleasant business, but very useful to tho country. The Commitee has smoked out another important fraud in the mail contracts. W. C. Barney of Xew York testified before the committee that he made pro. posalstn carry the mails betiuen Xew York, Xew Orleans and San Francisco, for . 1 79,200 : David P. Johnson offered to do the service for 102,000 anil obtained the contract, but two dais before the service was to have commenced Johnson notified the post master general that he could not fulfill his contract, llarncy then stood the lowvst bidder, but instead of giving him the contract, the government gave it to Vanderbilt for 202,500, an excess of j?Sl,:i00 over Hartley's price. The law requires that contracts shall be given to the lowest bidder! in this case It was given to the highest bidder. It appears also that Johnson's bid was Iiolmis. from the start, and was only introduced ns a means of making the transfer to Ynnderbilt. Johnson received $30,000 for acting his part. Tho reason for this heavy fraud upon the treasury was that the administration wanted Van-derbilt's- inlluenco in Congress, and was obliged to buy it in this way. How nfllictivc these rev. clatbns must be, indeed, to tho incoriuntible "J. B." A Saij Casi:. The town of Ashburnham Ms., has been agitated of late by an elopement in high life. Some eight j ears sinco KUen M. Barrett, daughter of n highly respected citizen of that plate, mauled ltev Mr. Hoot, a Congregational minister then settled iu Williamsburg, and with him subsequently removed to Springfield, Ohio, where Mr. Knot is now settled.
