is much more of an Abolitionist than Mr.
FILLMORE, against whom they produce
him as a witness. Let us appeal to the re
cord. Among the proceedings of the Sen
ate, in Executive session ou the Mexican
Peace Treaty, Wednesday, March ,
the following occurs:
" Ou motion by Mr. Baldwin to insert at
the end of the fiiftb. article the following
words, to wit :
" J'roi-i'M, That there shall be neither
slavery nur involuntary servitude in the
territories hereby ceded, otherwise than in
the punishment of crimes, whereof the par
ty thall have been duly convicted."
After debate, the question was stated,
'shall these words eland as part of the
fifth article V
And it was determined in the negative :
Yeas 15, nays 3.
Those voting iu the affirmative are
Messrs. ATHERTON, Baldwin, Clarke,

! Let us briefly glance at the three Presi-

Le nominee of the democratic party, he is
certainly a man of medium fair good tab

quired a considerable fund of experience.

was wise to sink himself behind bis plat

the speaker read Buchanan's speech in ae
oeptauoe of tho nomination.) lie says the
platform is "broad and national enough for
the whole Democratic party," not for Whigs.
(A laugh.) Mr. Preston, of Louisvill", with
the Whig shell yet sticking to his head, had
already got so high up among the Demo
