'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.

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 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..

Tiie error may be discovert d too late to repair the injury it inllicts.

By far the most important acquisition to our ranks ia the west, is that of the St. Louis Republican, the 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 ; 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 duty of every good citizen to aid in the work.” ‘ The Vi^jilance Committee of San of the surviving i>arty, who is now an in- j j.^ancisco have notified Senator Bigler of mate o# a lunatic asylum, standing, as it dof>s. with the lower branches full of life and verdure, wiiile its top is dead and b atless.

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 says : ‘•When Jim (for this is his familiar name.) was in New Bedford he met .‘several fugi tives whom I'.e rec.^gnized as former -laves in Norfolk.

Slie is said to have been an intel ligent lo.»king individual. Siie contended 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 Ciiurch.

And yet thf^ British JotinmI.s cry out, “Wiien will Americans learn manners?" There is a bad school for iis in England, certainly.
