The Abolitionists and Democrats of Massa

fruits of which, is the division of the public of.
fices between the two factions. Mr. Rantoul,
a democrat, is to fill the unexpired term of Mr.
Webster, in the U. S. Senate ; and Mr. Sum

to fill the succeeding full term.
The Union denounces this alliance in the
strongest terms. But it all amounts to nothing.
So long as the abolitionists hold the balance of
power in these free States, just so long will
they be able to control either one of the great
Parties, and make them work in whatever
traces - theyi please. Standing between the
Whigs and Democrats, theyran turn the tide
of almost any struggle and make il serve their
