Post to explain to his readers, why it was that tho friends of Mr. FILL- MOKE ami Mr. FKKMONT had united upon the same electoral ticket. The editor of the Post tiatlv denied that such union had taken place and called on us for the proof. Well, here it is. Wc take tho following from the Huntington R Indiantt Gazette, a Fremont paper: FOB MESIDENT : JOHN C. FREMONT, of New York. FOR VICK PRESIDENT ! WM. L. DAYTON, of New Jersey.

We clip tho following from the same paper: Coalition between Fillmore and Fremont. “ The Fillmore State Convention of Indiana have just UNITED with the FKEMONT or BLACK REPUBLICAN PARTY, by nomi nating the SAME ELECTORAL TICKET for the State. If any of our Democratic friends have been feeding themselves up with the hope of u DIVISION among the American and Re publican parties upon the State ticket, they would do well to give up that hope as utterly futile. “The friends of Mr. Fillmore should now go to work to secure a majority of the popular vote of the State of Indiana for him; if they Micci i'd, of which wc have no doubt, the Elec toral vote will be cast for him. Let there bit no CLASHING between the friends of FILL- MOKE and FKEMONT, bccauso their caus-t is ONE CiUSE. Let tho energies of the friends of each be directed against Buchanan, and wc will have no more slave soil to curse our government.” Here is die proof, Mr. Ivins, from a Fill more paper. Hew do yon like it? It is tint way all your paper-, talk in the non-slavcholu- ing States, while yottr papers swear in the South that the EQlmore party is the only na tional organization in the country. What hy pocrisy! Let the reader mark that it was a MILL'MORE STATE CONVENTION that brought about this coalition. Does the editor of tin' lVt want any more proof? Wo hare r austaiueil the assertion wc made, by a Fillmore ■♦►jiaper, which ought to be good evidence with the Post. There is one of two things very cer- lain. t!ie editor of the Post is wofully ignorant of what is going on North, or he is trying to lead os tray the public mind. Which is it ?— Cleveland (Tcnn.)

AID FOR GEORGIANS IN GEORGIA. The Columbus Times proposes that the dif ferent counties in Georgia send delegates to convention to assemble in Atlanta, on Wed uesday, 1st October next, for the purpose of organizing a State Association, with affiliated clubs in aU the counties, to raise men and means for Kansas. This proposition seems to meet with 'general approbation, and wc ccrcly hope that it will be carried into effect It is unnecessary to argue the importance of such a movement. Our friends in Kansas need our assistance, and it is certainly our duty and ought to he our pleasure to help them. We would have preferred our owu city for the place of meeting, as it is more central and accessible than Atlanta; and the Atlanta Ex aminer suggests that the time be changed to some day previous to or early after the first of October, as the American party will hold their Slass Meeting there on the second of the mouth, and the two assemblies might conflict But these are immaterial points. Let the time and place be definitely fixed upon, and let us hold a Convention, with full representations from all quarters of the State, to adopt such measures as may seem most expedient for sus taining the pro-slavery party in tho Territory of Kansas. We would suggest the propriety of calling a meeting in Macon at an early day for the purpose of appointing.delegates to the above Convention. 'Whig Convention. The pseudo-Whig Convention which assem bled in Baltimore on the 17th inst., must have been composed almost entirely of self-consti tuted delegates—men who happened, at the time, to be within convenient distance of the place of meeting—for very few of the States had previously appointed representatives. It was made up mostly of Knownothings, with a sprinkling of Abolitionists and possibly a few so-called old fine Whigs. They sung “ balli- lujah” to the Union, lauded Fillmore and the greasy Tennesseean, and finally concluded with the grave formality of ratifying the Know- nothing ticket. They adjourned on the 18th, to meet again in 18G01 The whole thing com menced with bogus and ended in farce. That’s all. Attention Democrats! On the first Saturday in October next, there will be a grand Democratic rally of the people of Jones, Twiggs, Bibb, Baldwin and other counties, at Mountain Spring Church near Griswoldville, on the Central Railrord, a short distance below thb city. Among other speak ers, Hon. A. H. Stephens, Hon. Rob. Toombs, and Hon. Wm. L. Yancey have promised to be present. It is worth going many miles to hear either of these distinguished orators. Ex tra trains will doubtless he run, and wc hope our friends in Bibb will go down in sufficient numbers to carry off the fine Banner which will be presented to the largest delegation Let the Unterrificd Democracy turn out in full force on this occasion—let us have a glo rious rally worthy of our strength and our cause. A free barbecue will be given, and ample preparations made for thousands. Another Lie Exposed!

A correspondent of the New York Day Book in goods, and all suffered more or less damage sa ^, : . f t,„ , ■ b The prospects for Buchanan and Breckin ridge are improving in Michigan. We now feel as though wc were out of the woods, and can safely calculate upon carrying the State this fall. It is stated that Mr. Breckinridge really made a proposition to Mr. Buchanan at the Wheatland, yesterday, on the subject of his itbdrawal. The plan is to get Mr. Douelson also to withdraw, and unite the Democratic and American tickets in the persons of Fill more and Breckinridge. Such a ticket Mr, Breckinridge thinks will be likely to succeed against Fremont and Dayton. What is to be done about the two platforms does not appear. Nor have we learned what response Mr. Bu chanan made to the proposition. Notwithstanding we are aware of the Journ al Si Messenger’s predilection for one-sided statements, we nevertheless appeal to it to do a simple act of justice by copying the follow ing paragraph from the Pennsylvanian, a pa per which is in all respects perfectly reliable. It disposes of this unquallified lie and its un principled author in a very summary manner : We copy the above paragraph from the Phil adelphia Bulletin of last evening. The editor of that paper is a member of the Christian Church and day after to-morrow will once more bend his knee at the altar of God, with the profound self-conviction that in pub lishing this paragraph he forged and uttered a deliberate, unqualified, wholesale lie- It will be seen that it is a clear and straight ont statement which renders the guilt of the knave who fabricated it all the more darning. The oath of poor Uncle Toby which broke from him in regard to the dying soldier was wc arc told wiped out by tho tear of the angel who recorded it, but a lie like this so cold blooded and malignant, will stick to tho hypo crite who made it to the last day of his life. We believe our city contemporary who help ed to circulate tho above contemptible fabrica tion, is not only a “member” but a minister of the “ Christian Church.” Enough said.

Southern Methodism has made rapid advances in its educational efforts, having not less than 8.000 students in its num erous colleges and academics. In 1845 its Sunday School Society was formed. Now there are over 2.000 schools, nearly 93,000 scholars, 14,0(M> teachers, and 17,000 volumes in the libraries. Five thousand dollars have been collected for the Tract cause.

NEW YORK, 17th Sept. 1856. jltr. Telegraph : I was in New Jersey yes terday, and in conversation with several gen tlemen who, from the drift of their talk, I pre sume will vote for Fremont, found that they were willing to concede that State to be very donbtful. * The Buchanan men count upon it with certainty. I saw the other day,'a gentle man from the interior of Pennsylvania, who from his high position and character must be as well posted as any man there, ne says wc need feel no anxiety about the old Keystone. She will go for Buchanan by twenty thousand. From Illinois I saw a gentleman today’, and he says we are sure of that State beyond a doubt, and that nearly all the Fillmore men of Illinois of whom, by the way, he was one, will concentrate their votes upon Mr. Buchanan. The Maine election, however, has inspired the Fremont party with a swelling confidence, and they are already beginning to lay out an administrative programme. I stumbled upon a Fremont fugleman, the other day, who gra ciously informed me that it was in contempla tion to run a Fremont Electoral ticket in Georgia, as the Colonel had “a great many friends in that State.” “Ah 7” “Yes, and how will it run in your judgment?” “I answer that question, Yankee fashion, by asking an other—“how would an electoral ticket’headed no more non-slaveholding territory—no more non-slaveliolding States run .in New York1" Why, not at all!” “Then, how could you expect a ticket for no more Slave States or territory in Georgia. We believe 'our social organization to be as good and as Constitu tional as yours, and are just as unwilling to put it under the ban of political proscription. 1 Thereupon followed a talk upon the ques tions in issue, and the probable result ofFre mont’s election, should it happen. The fugle man was profuse in professions with regard to the very conciliatory policy “we” intend to pursue towards the South. He promised Georgia one of tbe most important Cabinet appointments under the new administration and thought the name of the appointee would astonish me were I permitted to hear it. thought as much, for myself aud the gentle men in question, whoever it might be. I saw Fremont, the other day—a dark com plexioned, swarthy man of 43—though some seven years younger in appearance. I should say he is about fire feet eight in height, and weighs 140. His forhead is low, but broad— eyes deep set and very close together—nose (his best feature) long and straight—and no thing, either in face or manner, to found a fa vorable opinion upon, in respect either to character or talents. An inferior, or at least ordinary looking man—such an one as, among a thousand strangers, would be about the last designated as a candidate for the Presidency The luxuriant, brigand development of hair and whiskers which delight the Jessie Clubs in his pictures, are minus in the original, and far from being abundant. Ilis beard strag gles thinly over a considerable surface and his black hair uniquely parted in the middle is manifestly beginning to assume the same con sideration. J. C From the Federal Union, Sept. 1C. Col. Flournoy’s Letter. We cheerfully comply with the request of Col. Flournoy, contained in the note below Sandkrsvillk, Sept. 10. 1856. Gentlemen: Yon will oblige me by giving the following communication an early insertion iu your paper. Respectfully yours, R. W. Flournoy, To the Public. After an absence of a month from the State, I was mortified on returning home to find any- doubt expressed in any quarter a3 to my polit ical position. I am consoled, however, in sup posing, that whoever has, for a moment, doubt ed where I stood, must have possessed a very limited knowledge of my character, and none whatever of my feelings I did not suppose my position was a matter of any consequence, but as it seems to have been of sufficient im portance to be misrepresented, it is at least due to myself that 1 should distinctly state what it is. There were other gentemen whom I prefer red to Mr. Buchanan, and whom I should have been pleased to see nominated in stead of him self, not because 1 doubted the soundness of Mr. Buchanan, hut because he is rather too conservative, or in other words, he is not qnite fast enough for me. But after his nomination, I became perfectly satisfied, as I should have been satisfied with any man nominated by a national convention of the Democratic party; unless by any possibility that nomination had been conferred upon either Mr. Van Buren or Mr. Fillmore, then I should not have support ed either of them. So far as Mr. Fillmore is concerned, he is tiie last man on earth I would support for any office; in fact there are no combination of cir cumstances that could possibly arise that could induce me to give him my support. In the first place, I do not consider him sounder up on the slavery question than Mr. Fremont; and in the second place, he has the blood of some fifty American cittizens upon his hands, which not all the water that flows down the Mississippi for a thousand years could wash a- way. His friends are ever boasting that he has been tried; ’tis true ho has been tried, and came so far short of doing his duty under his oath,that I place him lower than any man now living. So far from demanding any satisfac tion from the Spanish Government for the vio lation of an existing treaty which guaranteed to every American citizen a fair trial when charged with a capital offence, he did not even demand an explanation of the barbarous mur der of Crittenden and his unfortunate followers; but did' humilate this government by requir ing that the flag of Spain should be saluted inNew Orleans. Upon this charge I challenge any respectable friend of Mr. Fillmore iu Georgia to defend his conduct; and I hereby pledge myself to meet such friend any where m open and fair dtscussiou. At no period of my life have I been so well satisfied with the correctness of the great prin ciples of the Democratic party, nor of the im portance of their success to the welfare and lappiness of the peoplo of this country. At no time has it presented so imposing a posi tion, nor one that more justly claims the ad miration aud support cf every man at tho South; and if I have not been as active in the contest as I have sometimes been, it is simply because I did not conceive it to be necessary. But to-day I feel that it is to the Democratic party alone, we can look for the preservation of tho Union, and the rights of the South un der the Constitution. I desire and roqucst the Central Georgian to give this lottcr a place in its columns, R. W. Elournot. The U. S. Army in Kansas When the Freesoilers in Kansas, committed their first serious depredations and captured Pates’ command, and the “ border ruffians' organized a force to bestow upon these rascals the punishment they deserved, Col. Sumner with his United States troops intefered to pre serve t'nc peace, but the effect was to protect the assasins in their work of blood and pillage. Yhe Pro-slavery men were the law and order men and must obey Col. Sunnier, but the crimes had been committed, the blows had been stricken, and for the sake of law and or der the guilty must go unpunished, and still remain good citizens of the territory. Thus ends the first lesson. Col. Sumner from some cause is removed and Gen. Persifer Smith given the command. Affairs in Kansas were now to be wisely and successfully managed. Gen. Smith was from the South, and at least would not be prevent ed by sympathy for the Freesoilers from doing his duty in protecting the law and order peo pie of die territory. Let us see how he has discharged that duty so far. Jim Lane had been for months in the suberbs of Chicago, and other holding places raising an army of desperadoes for the avowed purpose of blot ting out the pro-slavery party in Kansas. His acts and objects were notorious throughout the whole Union, and were well known to Gen. Smith. It was also well known that he had succeeded in raising his army and was march ing the long and difficult route through Iowa and Nebraska. He.was permitted to enter the heart of the territory with all his men, arms hand, without the slightest obstacle offered by Gen. Smith’s command. As these events were transpiring the trial of the free State prisoners for various crimes was about to begin at Lc- compton, and it was well ascertained to be Lane’s first purpose to release them from ar rest, and set them at full liberty. His force every on-e knew not to be less than five hun dred men well armed and disciplined, and to meet all contingencies that might result from such circumstance, Gen. Smith dispatches an overwhelming force offifty dragoons to execute the laws at all hazards. The army of Lane committed their murders and robberies all around and in musket shot of Lecompton, and it is said were only prevented from a success ful attack on that place by a heavy rain.— The people of that place are driven off. The prisoners are not tried—are now on bail for treason, equivalent to an absolute discharge and the laws are not executed in spite of Gen Smith’s very extraordinary precaution in or dering fifty men to put to flight five hundred. And thus ends the second lesson. The true fathers of the territory, and their friends on the border in Missouri rally to pun isli these scoundrels as they justly deserve. They raise an efficient force and enter the field determined to capture Lane and break up his Abolition den at Lawrence. But Gov. Garey reaches the territory and “ commands all armed men to disband.” Of course the law and order men must obey—on the other hand orders from the Government are also issued to Gen. Smith commanding him secure to him all the militia necessary to main tain order and suppress the insurrection and that no' military operations shall be carried on in Kansas otherwise than under his instructions.” The orders also narrate that the “hostile at tacks” of the invasion through Nebraska seem to have stimulated to unlawful acts of the same character parties on the border of Missou ri” aud Gov. CJeury is expected “to maintain the public peace, and bring punishment upon all acts of violence aud disorder by whomso ever the same may be perpetrated.” The ab olitionists will be too smart and hypocritical altogether to run the risk of a fight against the U. S. troops sustained by the Kansas militia. They will pretend to respect the command— may give up a few unimportant men as pri soners, and will run off or conceal Lane. Thus the law will be executed—thus the horrible crimes committed will be punished and the Freesoilers will remain to vote at the election, and make night attacks on the peaceful citizens. And such (we fear) will be the end of the third lesson. The army in Kansas then in view of the ob ject it proposes to accomplish, is a veritable humbug and acts as a cover and protection to crime and rebellion. The people of tho terri tory have never required the United States troops to enforce their laws. They have al ways been fully able to do this, and had they been permitted at the time Col. Sumner inter fered, quiet would now pervade the territory. Peace will never be restored until the Aboli tionist are “ paid in their own coin”—one good whipping will settle the whole controversy, and it will never be done unless the citizens are let alone. When nothiug will do a man, or set of men but a fight, there is no recourse but to accommodate them. It might be inferred from this, that we attach blame to the Administration, bat we do not. We believe the President to bc sincere in his desire to give full protection to the laws and powers that he” in Kansas. It is an error arising from the belief that nothing short of the United States army in Kansas could pre vent serious and permanent civil war. And then the views of the Administration have not been executed with any discrimination, or demonstration of the necessary responsibility, as yet, by either Sumner or Smith. How long will ?uch a state.of tilings continue?
