ho'.v does It prove ii ? IJecause, heretofore, while
there have no doubt been free-soilers in bi'tli the
wljig and democratic National Conventions, still
they were not so rabid as to withdraw from their
(larty associates and front their convention merely
because a majority passed the above resolutions ;
but these northern know-noihings, ii seems, are
such rampant abolitionists, and hule the South Hiid
its insiitutions so intensely, tijat they w ill not even
remain in a party conveniitm ihut pleases ibt-m in
every other particular, whose majority dare agree
to abide by and maintain ccitain Unis, piK>-sed in

thon, can our southern know.noihing friends con
gratulate themse lves or the South upon the pas
sage ol their platft>rm, ichen they had to puss it by

There was an energy in her tone of voice, a dre
