Recently Mr. John M. Butts delivered a.
very strong and able speech at Taylor's
Springs, iu Rockingham county, Virgiuir
in favor of Mr. Fillmore. He was replied
to bv Mr. Harrin, the Democratic elector
&r that district. During his speech Mr.
""ris several times alluded to Mr. Butts',

man who bad propounded the inquiry,
whether he considered an admission of the
eon-titutional power of Co-ogress to legislate
on the subject of slavery iu the Territories
an in-uperable objection to a caudidate for
the Presidency ?
Mr. Harris. I certainly do.
Mr. Botts. Then you, of course, would
not vote for Bit if I were a candidate, and
held the opinion ?
Mr. Harris. No; and, so help me heav

who subscribed to so daugerous and odious
a doctrine !
