ulate them to increased activity, and a more thorough organization, with the view to make u assurance doably sore." Bright as oar prospects no-v, and certain as the State seems for us, it can be lost by want of diligent effort for , tbe future. .We must omit no exertion, and then when the 6th of November shall have come and gone. it will be seen that the Columbia letter was but an empty boast.' j I i i Vj "Six of the Douglas District Electors have declinedand by the " electionmy opinion 1s there will be but two tickets in - the field." Notwithstanding this statement "there is a full Douglas electoral iicketin the field. In the Douglas organthe Democrat, of -yester day, we find it published as follows ' r FOR THE STATE AT LARGE. I '' Hon. W. H. POLK, of Manry. Hon. H. M. WATTERSON, of Warren. DISTRICT ELECTORS. 1. James Brittax, Jr.. of Greene i 2. W. H. Malone. of CampbelL . 3. G. W. Bridges, of McMiniu ' " . . 4. lu H.

We must make thorough work ol it, by aweepiug the State with ul- cisive majority of tbe whole popular vote. We demand nothing less than this ol the Constitutional Constitutional Union men. And we believe we shall get iU , -Tbe infamous doctrine of NbillS. Biiown has frightened Liui and his partisans.'' When and where has Neill S. Brown given utterance utterance to an "infamous duMrine?" And vho is this that sends 'abroad this" accusation against him ? Neill 3. Bttowx is one of the best and purest men in the Stale amongst all her sons there U not one who has higher and weigbter claims to the virtues which adorn private and public life. ''Ne'er yet has base dishonor blurred his name !' What excuse can any one give for accusing such a man as he is accused by this procurer for Alabama secessionists? There can be no sufScient excuse. It is an outrage which should bring shame and confusion to him who is guilty of it.
