Wa.shincton City, July 18,'i().
Messrs. Holden & WlLS»N : — I liave re
cently received letters from various points
in oiiv State, intorming me that the Hon.
James Buchanan is charged by the p(diti-
cal friends of Mr. FiUmore with ha\ ing vo
ted for the Bankru[)t hiw of IS 11. 'I'o save
tbe trouble of answering these enquiries
separtitelv, I have writti?n this letter for
publieation, giving a stateimMil ot the facts
as 1 iind them.
At tiie time this act was passed Mr. Bu-
cluinan was in the United States .'enate,
and »n .July 24, 1841. he is recorded as vo
ting again>t the passage of the Bankrupt
bill. S»‘e Senatt* .Journal for thiit session,
page 113. On the same day, Mr. Buchan
an made a speech against tiie bill. See Ap
pendix to Coiigres.siona 1 (ilobe for that se^-
sion, page 211.").
On February 1S43, Mr. Buchanan is
recordi-d as voting for the r**peal of the
Bankrupt law. See Senate .Journal fm- the
session, page 22!K
When tbe act pas.sed, Mr. Fillmore was a
member of the House ot Ki'presentatives,
and on August 1841, he is recorded as
voting fu- the Bankru]»t bill. .See House
Journal for the session, page Mr.
Fillmore made a speecli in favor of the bill.
Augu.'t Ui, 1841. See Appt-ndix lo Con-
gi-*s.-'ional Gloite for tl’.e session, page 48i).
On January 17, 184.‘i. Millard Fillmore is
recorded as voting agiiinst tlie repeal of tiie
Bankrupt act. See Hou.se Journal for that
session, page 21.3.
It will, tliorefore, be seen that .Mr. Bu
chanan lill) NOT vote for tlie Bankrupt law,
but tiiat .M r.. Fillmore Dio ; and moreover,
tliat Mr. Buchanan voted FOR THE REI’EAL
of the law, and Mr. Fillmore voted again.st

VALUABLE ACCESSION TO
By far the most important acquisition to
our ranks ia the west, is that of the St.
Louis Republican, the ino.st able, ndiuble,
and extensively circulated political paper
west id' Now York. It has for many years
been the leading paper and acknowledged
organ of tiie Whigs in Missouri, Iowa, IHi-
nuis, and all Western States South. It
comes out for Buchanan iu tliis wise :
“ We make two points in defence of our
course—the first is the utter impossibility
of the election of Mr. Fillmore, in the pre
sent state of parties, or any arrangement of
parties brtwe»n this and November—and
thi^ next is, that as between Mr. Buchannn,
the Democratic, and Mr. Fremont the Black
Republican and Aboliiion candidate, no pa
triot—no man who wishes to see this Union
Cemented together, instead of beir.t; broken
into fragments, ought to hesitate in de
ciding in favor of Mr. Buchanan. Put tbo
BUn-k Republicans in power by the election
of FrenuMil—give Seward niul Wilniot,
Preston King and Giddings, Wentworth
;j.id Chase, .Sumner and Pu echer, Lovejoy
and Parker, and tlie three ♦Iioustind politi
cal preachers who have made the men of
‘he Free .States mad by their infamous .np-
peals for a dis-^olution of the Union, und
a desecration of the pul[ut -jmt these men
in charge of the government, as they would
i)e when they had Fremont in leading string.s
—and then what would be the situation of
th(‘ fifteen slave States, having interests pe
culiar to tliemsidves, which this party aro
sworn to crush and destroy ?
Tills is the issue, and the only issue, in
the coming election. It is an issue which
puts tbe Union in jeopardy, and which the
Black Republicans wou.j glory in .«e(dng
take place, rather than they should not be
suecesstul in their piditieal aspirations. In
a contest of this kind, Mr. Fillmore is no
more than any (>tbor man; wo want succes.^
in the ih t'eut of the enemies of the Union,
and Mr. Buchanan’s election presents tbo
only means for the accomplishment of thi.s
d>ject. He can heat Fremont, and it is the

VISIT OF A SLAVE TO THE NORTH.
Messrs. Rowland & Bros., of Norfolk,
Va., own a slave. .Tames Wih'y, whom they
permitted some months since to make a tri[>
to the North to see the curiosities. They
not only gave him a permit to take a p:is-
sage in the New' York steamer from Nor
folk, bnt al--c gave him the necessary funds .
to bear his expenses. He vi.^ited Falmouth,
Fall Rivi r, New Bedford, and sundry other
abolition towns in Massachusetts, and on
Saturday last returned home, via Phila.lel-
phia aiul Baltimore. The Noriolk Argus

was in New Bedford he met .‘several fugi
tives whom I'.e rec.^gnized as former -laves
in Norfolk. They supposing he hud runa
way, received him witii down cast looks,
and a.ssured him that he had come to the
wrong place, and remarking that they were
■‘making out” very po..rly, having t" labor
very hard, and get luit p>oriy p:;i'^ in re
turn: tiiey expressed great di'.'at. 'uctiou
at the treatiiii lit they received at the lands
of their aboUtiou friends. Jin, t, M tin-in

cn a visit, and w.iuid return to Norf.dk iu a
few days. At several of these towns in
Ma>sachusett5 he was importuned by the
Aboliti.mi.'ts to remain, a'.'Uring him that

a few d'.iys since with the bill, and said
he had cmie from Ea^'t Hartford to gi-t gold

who was in the compa:iy of the late crowd
which passel though (>ur town for Stilt
Lake, we learn, had no leas than four hus
bands. Slie is said to have been an intel

that women have as good a right to have a
number of husbands, as a man iiad to have
as many wives as he wi?hed, provided the
men were all mem'oers of the Mormon

Every one conversant with the continent
of Europe understands the phrase, “Eng

anything l>ut good manners. A mixture of

And yet thf^ British JotinmI.s cry out,

There is a bad school for iis in England,
certainly. A modest, intelli^^eiit, learned
