FEDERAL COURT.
This tribunal met in this City on Monday
last -Tudrjel BaBBoiTiPand Potter presi
ding;. The Court adjourned on Tuesday
evening, there having bees no business of
great importance brought before it.
The " STJ.YIhlllirS" attempt to
DRIVE the South into a svpport
of the Administration.
There was an extra issued from the
Standard office in this City, on Satur
day last, bearing on its face the osten
sible design of arousing the Southern
people in defence of their rights, and
proclaiming, on very questionable testi
mony, that a formal union' had ta
placu " between the Abolitionists and
Whigs." Such a declaration, however
unfounded, is calculated to excite deep
attention; an. I though, in the end, its
iiw it poison may caase its death, yet the
fear that some may bl eluded and im
puted upon by its Jesuitical conception
anil argument, nntl a sense of duty to
the South ami to (he Whig cause de
mands, that every citizen who values
his pure principles and who would
shrink from an union so monstrous,
should at once recur to his position and
promptly correct the public opinion thus
sought to bo itillamcd and misdirected.
We are not desirous to clear the
Noi (hern Whig Party of the chaige of
AhMitionism, at thn expense of any par
ty either there or here. But when the
f.icts are in mir favor when they in
controvei libl v hhow that the Whig par
ly of ihe north embrace as little of .iboli
liotxitm tm any party there and when
The ad mi ntsTa I i o itc rg ii ivfare end e a V or"
ing, in the face of these facts, to unite
tli.'in together they must bear the true
charges thrown upon them, and occupy
thiit position to which the candid jutlg
mcnt of the people may assign them.
On the adjustment nf the Tariff ques
tion. Abolitionism, although before agi
tated, began to extitc Ihe more imme
diate attention t.f the Union. The
South, the interested, the villificd sec
tion, was alive in a moment to the sub
ject. She saw the actors in this ex
pected tragedy, and tdie was prepared
-to scrutinize the course of the North
n'iihout respect to party. It was then
found that Abolitionism pervaded to
some extent the entire Northern body
politit ; and Southern statesmen at once
took their stand upon the Constitution,
j They reminded the North of their rights
but. despite of their remonstrances,
the Abolitiunists increased in respecta
bility and number, until in '3G 3T the
Southern delegation in Congress were
insulted to their teeth, with thousands
of petitions to abolish slaverv .some of
them from sieves. And it was on this
memorable occasion that Mr. Wise,
than whom a more incorruptible and
sterling Whig never existed.' boldly,
proclaimed that neither himself nor his
constituents would thus calmly submit
to insult; and, with the Southern dcle-
gatinn, left tlie hall.. Where were then Argus and is now paraded by the St.m
the Standard's democratic" brethren j dard to operate upon the South. P.ut

minitration, uxitkd with i up Aboli-
TION1S I S
lave carried the elections in
Ohio, (the State 4tcli this same Mor
ris represents, ) do we hear any regrets
of the Standard? Do we see any extras
announcing an 'important crisis, bi
with the fate nf this "treat country"?
Do we hear anv pious exhortations to
.. " i . . A
' adhere tj tlie Constitution".- Any
appeal to the pseutlo democrats to dis
unite them-reves from their, brethren in
Ohio? Any appeal to State Rights men,
to Federalists, to support those it may
deem the guardians of Southern libet ty ?
No! not one word to this ctleCt! Hut
when the Albany Anti-Slavery Society,
in an electioneering excitement, takes
its position beneath, the banner of a
Whiz candidate, we hear itsluutiest
and most ominous tones! "A League!"
and the assertion that the whigs have
formally united themselves to the abo
litionists! It would make the people
believe that the whole whig party ure
rak abiili'ionists and that no security
is offered to the South, should it refuse
now to march, "horse, foot anil dra
goons," into the ranks of the Adminis
tration! In the same number nf the paper
which promulgates this circular which
the Standard has given in an extra to
its readers, we fintl nn article signed
'An Abolitionist," in which it is plain
ly intimated that the Anti-Slavery par
ty will not support the whig candi
dates. They say that the "Whig par
ty, have no respect to the opinions of
the Abolitionists, in making their nom
inations to ollice,"and that Mr. Seward
savs he was nominated withoutany
reference to them." And it is notori
ous that tlie abolitionists look upon Mr.
Clay as their deadliest enemy. This
is proved by the abolitionist journals.
The course of the two leading Whig
prints in New York, the Star and the
Courier and Knquirer, in 'DfiVKSCE
OF SLAVERY, and the course of the
Evening Post, the leading administra
tion paper, in DIRECT OPPOSI
TIOS TO IT. and the manner in
which the abolitionists denounce Mr.
Clay as a slaveholder, constitute ut
themselves conclusive proof that the
'democrats' of the North are deeply im
plicated in Abolition schemes, and that
no victory can be achieved over the
Whigs there by them, without power
ful aid from their allies, the Abolition
ists. The fact is, in the late New York
elections Mr. Seward, the Whig can
didate for Governor, was OPPOSED
by the Abolitionists. This is proved
by the Courier and Enquirer of the ?th.
It says:
" If .Ibolitionitm .or in other words Trru
ton treann to the Union of the Slates in its
most oiliont form had not raised ita hideous
head among os, we mitrht proolairn, with certain
til, that VM. II. SEWAKD ia elected Govern
or. But the mavts who seek itlo!ilion of
alavery without regard to the Constitution ajiJ
ihe institutions of the country, have for a mo
ment setlticfil honest and high-mimled men into
their toils, and have thus given themaelves a
political importance whirh is aa transient aa il is
contemptible When lima is allowed for reflec
tion, all those thus deluded, will find expressed
in the teller nf Mr. SewnrJ, the only opinions in
regard to this exciting topic which any honrrt
man any patriot may hold without being guil
ty of treaton lo our Union. Then will political
abolition be held up ns a bye-word and a re
proach; and those who have temporarily yieldcj
to it, look with acorn and indignation upon ihe
unprincipled men with whom it originated
Thank Gon the Whige of the State and City
fof New York, while they leel as turn should
feci on this subject, have clearly demonstrated
that they al least, are prepared to hold .ibotition-
t'srt as only worthy of being associated with

tans. With lurm Itiey Have "couaigneu it to the
tomb of the Capuleta," and the great victory
they have achieved ia untainted with thia new
fairglod species of treaton to the Union." '
In New York, it will be seen, the
Whigs proudly proclaim that the "great
victory they have achieved is untainted
with tuis new-langled species of Trea
son to the Union" Abolitionism
Docs this look like a " formal union be
tween the ab'olitrenists and whigs"?
W'c believe thisrattempt to drive the
Southern people into the support of Mr.
Van lluren will prove abortive. It or
iginated with the Albany Aus. It is
its last hope. The cause of Van lluren
in New York is crushed forever; and
this trick upon the South is confidently
looked to as the only means of prop"
ping up his falling fortune. Bradish,
the Whig candidate for Lieutenant
Governor, in his overweenin"; ambition
for office, to gain the votes nf the Abo
litionists, gave in his full and uncondi
tional adhesion to their odious and fa
natical doctrines. This brought out the
famous bulletin of the Anti-Slavery So
tietv, which-was seized upon bv the

Whigs of the Sooth care not for parties
in this great conflict; they are,convinc
ed that patriotism will impel to the on
set every son of Southern chivalry
whose aid is desirable or whose assist
ance is'worth having. And if that con
flict be-now, let ihe Standard, letthe
pseudo democrats'' remember, that
true Southrons are too brave to be a
lanned- as they are too pure to be se
duced into Uie Van liuren ranks as
their onlv hope. They know their
rights they know, their position they
want no " democratic" advice, and
they will scorn the tongue that would
give false counsel or warning as they
will strike bac ihe traitorous arm that
would ove'rlhrowlhcir institutions.
We shall expose hereafter the unten

powerless ami contemptible. In the
mean time, from want of room, we close

tached such a tremendous importance..

.W'r ask the privilego of brethren, to set
forth briefly hut frankly, the reasons which
constrain us to cast our votes for WILLIAM
H. SKVYARI), for Covc-rimr.
1st. Mr. Seward is tho c..'. J.Jaio of the
party which, on tho floor of tionsirtss, nobly
vindicates the itiestiinahlo right of petition,
and as nobly asserts'tho freedom of debate;
of the artv, also, that sustain John Quiuey
Adam and William Sladr; of a party whose
views are liberal and tolerant.
2d. Mr. Seward is tho candidate- of the
party which, in our last Legislature,, passed
resolutions uitain.it ihe admission of Texas
into the.t'nion; agaitwt Pattern's jjao; resolu
tions; in fuvor of iho right of pt-ti lion; and t'i
ni-or olVrantiiijTtrial by jury to persons claim
luoitive slaves. Instead of the dt-inmoialiotis
and rc-vilitiijs with which ottr petitions' were
treatf'd in years past instead ol' tlireatcninir
us with penal enactments, the Whigs receir
ed and treated pelilious and remonstrances
with that respect and comity due to their con
stituents. .'Id. Mr. Seward is iho candidate of the
party that opposes tho re-election of a Presi
dent who stands pledged lo veto any bill a
bolishing slttvHw'ttiriTlsTRci of Colum
bia. 4th. Mr. Seward is ihe candidate oppos
ed to Governor Marcy, who in his messages
to the Legislature, has manifested, in simii
ineiit and sympathy, the bitterest hostility
to our cause; and who, as the prcsidiao olu
cer of a juiliiie meeting, while he was"(inT
ernor of the State, recommended the passage
of laws authoiiiirig a violation ofilie maid,
ami inflicting pains and prnaliic-; upon those
who were disseminatino- intidlioeneo and
truth.
5th. The re-election nf Governor Marcy
would g-j very far towards the re-election of
Martin Van Buren, whose measures and poli
cy are so hostile to the cause of human lib
erty. And, finally, because our knowledyo of
.nr. i-vwam irans us to cojilulo. inahu. rroue
I 1 I. n
ral soundness and integrity of his principles.
We view the jrreat question of a Nub-Treasury,
a Nalional Hank or the Ciirrc-ney, of
minor importance compared with the great
subject of human liberty; and bclievin.r that
Gov. Marey, will best nromoto tho irrent
causo of UiiivnrsaJEmancipaiion, wo shall
vote fordwfls-ourselvos, and recommend our
Abolition friendslo do tho same.
Wo are, respectfully, your fellow-citizens,
