“ Vdmlsslon of (tie Softs.”
1 lie following, Irom the Savannah News

of a Vending by ail true Southern men. It is I
truth titly spoken, and shows the source of
much of the boasted soundness of Northern'
“ * l |u telegraph has brought us a synoposis
of tlie platform laid down by the National!
Democratic Convention, yet, as these reports
are imperfect, we shall abstain from comment
uutd they shall have appeared in a full and au
thentic lorm. There is one point, however,
that IS complete in itself, and to this we beg
leave to call the attention of Southern men.—
We allude to the admis ion of one half of the
Soil Shell, or Irecsoil delegation front New
l ork. to seats, and an equality of rights in the
Convention. I iiesc men, for the greater part
"t the last eight years have had no connection j
with the National Democratic party, but have
been engaged in a wild chase after abolition
philanthropy. They abandoned Cass, the Dem
ocratic nominee in 18-18, and went off under
the leadership of Ma tin Van Huron, and from
that day to this have been engaged in a con
stant and bitter wivfare against the South and
her institutions and n tierce opposition to ev
ery northern mail who was di-posed to regard
the constitution and uphold the Union. They
have more recently shown their hostility to
conservative principles by denouncing the Kan
sas-Ncbraska hill, a measure which, from the
r beginning, has received their uncompromising
detestation and contempt.
During all this period these Softs, or Van
Duron Harnburrtcrs as they have been termed,
have held no regular connection with the Dem
ocratic party proper, but have only tempora
rily allied themselves with its fortunes when a
profitable bargain was offered as the induce
ment. The last few months have witnessed an
instance of this-base surrender of their cherish
ed principles in order to conic in for a distrib
utive share of the spoils. Their burners have
been bung out for the last twelve months with
“ Down with the Nebraska bilk” and " No
more extension of Slavery ” inscribed upon
them, and yet at the approach of a Presidential
nominating convention, tiiey met at Syracuse,
and to meet the emergencies of the occasion,
hypocritically pretend to repudiate all they had
said and doiic on the question of slavery. These
are the men—these latter-day Democrats, whom
hunger and thirst have driven to the acknowl
edgement, of the truth and the adoption of cor
rect principles—that have been admitted into
full fellowship and as equals with true and law
abiding men, in the great national council of
the Democratic party. Does it; not look as
though they had determined to carry the elec
tion, without regard to the agencies by which
it is to be accomplished ?”
The Amrriran Platform—-The Compromise
Os 1850—The Kansas-Ycbraska Art.
The American Platform adopted by the Na
tional Convention last February, in its 7th
section, pledges the American Party to the
support and maintenance of the doctrine ot
nun inter . '-tit ion on the subject of slaveey by
recognizing “the right of the-native born and
itaturaliz.-d citizens of the United States, per
manently residing in any territory thereof, to
frame the , co .stitution and laws, and to regu
late their domestic and social affairs in their
own mod:.-,” with •■the privilege of admission
info tie- Union whenever they have the requi
site population lor one Representative in Con
gress.'' Should the American Party have a
majority in Congress, and Kansas ask for ad
mission into the Union with a Constitution
recognizing and permitting si a eery as a domes
tir instdul.on in the new State, she would he
prminify admitted—no question would be
made by the American members as to the pro
priety of admitting her as a slave State, be-
X. urn ■ they would represent a party which ac
knowledges the Tight of the people of u territo
ry, in forming u Slate government, to determine
tor themselves, without interference from oth
ers. the character of their domestic institutions.
This principle is derived by tne American Par
ty from the Compromise Measures of 1850,
approved ami made eflectivo by Mr. Kid more.
Ji is to be found in flic Nmv Mexico and Utah
territorial nets. The XTimers and Secession- j
ists of the South and the Aboikioiiists of the
North opposed aur. denounced it at the time. I
and the excitement they got up is too recent to !
lie forgotten by the patriotic Union men who
sustained it, mid uph-id Mr. Fillmore, and the
members el Congress who accepted it as an
Olive ‘r. ; uof prune. Hut at a later day tins
prlii-J, which had quieted agitation and come

in ire as a "limil sei tlcineiit" of the sectional is-
sues between the North and the South, was en
grafted upon the Kansas. Nebraska Act, but
in cnnwction with the repeal of the Missouri
restriction which bad been regarded as a sol
emn compact and covenant between the slave
holding States, by the leading minds of the
country, and by the patriotic, honorable mass
es almost unanimously. The criminal connec
tion of a good principle with an act deemed
by ouc section of the Union a flagrant breach
of good faith, caused the former, to a great
extent, to be lost sight of altogether. There
has, h iwever been time for reflection, and dis
crimination is doing it3 work, slowly indeed,
but surely Numbers who coincided with us
in our disapproval of the policy of the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise, although they se
in the uitn ilurnl f uls which are disgracing
Kansas, and bringing reproach upon our rc
publican institutions, the inevitable consequen
ces of that mo-.t useless and unfortunate piece
of legislation, are willing to acquiesce in it.—
There can be no restoration of the Missouri
restri tion 'Hie deed ha?ing been cmg immut •(*,
It must stand, like the skull of the pirate ele
vated at the fork of the roads, a warning to all
future evil doers. It is the bar sinister on the
shield of American Statesmanship—there it
must remain till future good deeds obliterate
the memory of its ingloriousness. Aequisccd
in, discriminating judgement is leading the pat
riotie to contemplate and recognize the goood,
principle with which it was associated— tie
principle of non-intervention. Although this
principle, as enunciated in the American plat
form, is identical with that in the Kansas act,
and declared in almost the same language, as
an opponent of the repeal of the Missouri res
triction, we shall support it. We shall do so
because it is the principle of the compromise
of 1850,and because it is the true policy ol
our government—the only peaceable solution
of the controversies between the North and
South on the question ofslavery. It is the pol
icy which the Whig party in the South when
Andrew Ewing, in 1850. declared tin y were
.•sounder on the question of the Union of the States
than the Democratic parti/, supported with zeal
and alacrity, in company with Maj. Donelson,
our candidate for Vice Presidency, and thous
ands of other loyal union democrats. It
is the policy against which the Nashville Dis

which drew from Oheve.s thetreasonoblespeech
Wherein he denounced the constitution of the

in the adoption of which Aaron V. Arown de

Union once, and is destined we b lieve to save
it again, if any thing can save it from the dan
gers which arc in prospect. What though the
political mountebanks, the office hucksters, and
the plotters of dis-union in the Democratic I

The Hero ol lVicaragna.
The gwltarit deeds performed by General
j Walker in Nicaragua, will compare favorably
with the victories achieved by warriors in olden
times. Since the hour when he landed with
lilty-six followers his actions have been equally
courageous in times of adversity. The dillicul
ties that he has surmounted would have been
fatal to one who did not happily combine with
in him valor, faith, and a rare adaptability to
circumstances. The Sonora expedition had
gained for General Walker the name of tillibus
ter , but since lie entered as a soldier of fortune
into the service of the liberal party in Nicara
gua, no action of his hears the slightest resem
-1 blance to fillibusterism. As the couutrymen
of his Scotish ancestors. Admirable Crichton
among others, have always been ready to offer
their swords where honor could be gained, so
with him but he has kept within the letter of
the law. and purged his name from the early
stain of being connected with movements of
an illegal nature.
It was this fact that should alone have been
sufficient to induce Mr. Fierce to recognize the
Rivas-Walker government immediately after it
was established. Thanks, however, to Walker’s
self-reliance and indomitable energy, the clouds
that hung over his future career have tieen dis
persed. and he has succeeded not only in crea
ting order out of disorder, bat iii subduuing a
vain glorious and blood-thirsty invading army.
The Costa Ricans have been severely chastised
for their presumption and brutality, and have
returned to their homes cowed and humiliated.
The invaders of Nicaragua were guilty of
acts of sevage cruelty ; death was declared to
be the fate of all who came near their path,
and from the atrocious slaughter of unarmed
prisoners at Virgin Bay. it is evident that they
would have fulfilled their threats, had tiiey pos
sessed the power. No doubt, General Mora
’ will now abjectly sue for peace ; but bis past
conductdotis not entitle him to receive mercy
at the hands of victors.
The glorious future that General Walker
I has ensured to Central America Cannot be too
j highly estimated. The American foot is now;
| firmly planted on the soil, and the sloth and!
j barbarism of ages must speedily disappear I at-:

ages, and its riches allowed to run to waste,
will now become a source of wealth to people

Central America is the high road to Mexico,]
and we think there is nothing improbable in
the supposition that, it may be the destiny of
Gen. Walker to carry peace to that unhappy
land. Asa son of the South, he will be at home
in either country, and under his auspices the
institutions of hit native State might flourish
there.— Chron. fy Sen.

.Hr. Jeakiii* on the Presidency'*
Mr. Editor. : Bein«r certain t hat even a mea
gre report will be interesting, I will endeavor
to present the main points ol a speech dclivt r
ed at the Superior Court of Jefferson count}’,
on Wednesday last, by the Hon. Charles
J. Jenkins, at the request of the American par
The speaker said »’he old W hig party, with
which many of those present and himself were
formerly associated, had been disbanded. The;
Deitincftiiic party —a great, and respectable or
ganization—against which himself and his
friends for a long while ardently (ought, were
still in the field. Another organization had
sprung up suddenly and with surprisingeUicien- !
ey, styled the ‘ Know Nothing” or American
party. Tnere was also, another called •* Meek
Republicans” about which he should have lit
tle to say as it was generally condemed at tic j
South. He belonged himself to no party.
Now, the ques ion is frequently asked, where '
shall we go ? Shall we go into the democracy? j
Me would not advise those of the American
party, who were formerly democrats. He did
not think they would feturn, because they had
so recently left it. He would address himself
to the Old Line Whigs.
For himself, he could not go into the Democ
racy. That party contended that it had not
changed and he conceded the fact. And in as
much as he had always fought against it, he
could fiot now adopt it.
Just here I scarcely thoilght the Speaker
allowed sufficient weight to the new circufiistan
ces about that party.
As to the American party, he had not from
the beninning liked its secrecy, its oaths and
religions intolerance. ‘Twas a bad precedent.
It was true, however, that the fir«t hail (he be
lieved) been thrown aside and the last modified.
It had adopted a platform on the slavery ques
tion—knOtvn its the 3 2th section—satisfactory,
as was also the Democratic platform on that
subject. Afterwards that 12th section had
been stricken out by a Geceral Council. Still
all this rrtiglit go for nothing had they accom
panied the nomination of Mr. Fillmore with a;
suitable platform. This they did not do.—
And in his opinion there was *no National
American party upon which the South could re
But yon wont goto the Democrats. What
will you do? Vote flbt Ms. Fillmore? Mr.
Fillmore, he s i id, he respected and highly ap
preciated. Since his reirtement, however, nfew
questions had arisen, upon which lie had not
published bis views. He (lectures himself fa
vorable to maintaining the present status of
congressional legislation on Ibe subject of slave
ry. He felt pledged to this course, by the ac
tion of (I understood) the Convention at Md
ledgeville, which appointed delegates to the
Philadelphia. Convention of Council.*
But, said he. if that should be done, there
is still another and an almost insuperable ob
jection to bis supporting Mr. Fillmore, and
that was the nomination of Andrew Jackson
Donelson for the Vice Presidency. Here the
distinguished and able speaker ridiculed his
qualifications for the office, and evidently dis
relished the bitter taste of the Democratic pill.
He seemed to forget that the Democratic
Americans required such medicine, and wished
to deprive them even of that, because ti hs.l
not the taste of that same "old coon,”
He made some excellent remarks upon the
prudence of selecting a proper man ibr that
office, in view of the death ot the president, and
illustrated them by contrasting Mr. Tyler'S Ad
msmstration and Mr. Fillmore's. He sugges
ted that, should Mr. Fillmore declare pioper
sentiments upon the slavery question, and an
electoral ticket be gotten up in Georgia, some
other man, than Donelson, ought to be run for
the V ice Presidency.
But what shall we do if Mr. Fillmore does
not so dcclure himself? Stand still?
It was not necessary, he said, for his person
al comfort to belong to any party. He could
wait. Is he was right in what he said, he
could not go to the Democracy. Those who I
thought him wrong why Jet them go. And if!
right in wliathcsaid 03 to the American party,
he could not support that. Yet those who)
-thought differently might join it.
By way ofwarmng, though notso in term?,
he said, that many others perhaps, like himself,
occasionally felt inclined to act with the Amer
icans just to pitch into the D raocracy. But
circumstances might urise which would cause
them to regret such a step ; by uniting against
the Democrats they might Itecome so entang
led as to find it difficult to right themselves.
I have not been able, perhaps, to follow the
order of the speaker’s argument, and much less
his language. His positions, I think, are fair
ly stated. It was not a setspeeeh; but un ex
pression of his views reluctantly to his old
Iriends, at their request. His speech was a
plain, earnest and honest expression of his senti
ments ; and in that view must have excited the
admiration of his audience.

Mr. Martj—Lord Clarendon—-Curious Disclo
In the foreign news by the steamer at Que

British interference in Central America, the
Earl of Clarendon is reported to have said :
“There lias been no disguise w hate ver w.tli the
U. .States Government. The object of the
British Government avowedly had been to pro
tect British interests. On the nth of March ,
Mr. Marcy said he entirely disapproved of the

it hkely to oust a shadow upon the reputation
of tlie United States. He observed that he
knew no better ptarr of preceding than' for the

What Will intelligent American citizens, who
feel any national pride, think of this disclosure.
There can be no doubt, if Lord Clarendon
speaks truly, that the Administration at Wash
ington has been guilty, of an attempt to prac
tice upon the American people the grossest
dupiiciiy, and deception. The New York Ex
We have called this a curious disclosure, —
and 1 so" in is. For. while the Washington
Union, the Philadelphia Pennsylvanian, ad
about all the other Administration organs in
the country have been.exhausting the vocabulary
for adjectives sufficiently strong to express their
detestation of British aggression in Central
America,—the leading members of the Cabinet
are expressing a desire to go into a sort of part
nership. (or "combination,”) against Walker,
with that same Great Britain. The game, thus
seems to have been.—to “shriek” out loud
against "British intervention" at home,—while
the key note over sea—in downing Street—was.;t —was.;
I "on the contrary, quite the reverse.”
I On the stb of March,—mark !—Mr. Marcy '
"entirely disapproved of the existing stute ofi
things in Nicaragua.” On the sth of May,l
or thereabouts the same Mr. Marcy experiences j
, a change of mind, though the • existing state |
jof tilings" in Nicaragua was pretty much the j
j same as it was at the time he presented his "mu- '•
tual protection” plan to her Majesty’s Secreta- j
jry for Foreign Affairs. These sudden conver-;
sioi.s are extraordinary, to say the least of them. \
and as the case standi' we do not see very well
how Mr. Marcy’ in view of Lord Clarendon’s,
declaration, can avoid un explanation.
Again—on the sth of March, Mr. Marcy!
“thought the state of things in Nicaragua was ■
likely to cast a shadow, upon the reputation of I
the United States." Yet. something less than
two months subsequently, we find Mr. Marcy)
writing a very elaborate despatch to the Minis
ter from Costa Rica, Mr. Molina, showing that
the United States were not. and could not be
held responsible for the-state of affa'rs in Nic
aragua.” Now, will Mr. Marcy ho good
enough to tell us—which are we to believe—>
Marcy to Clarendon—or Murey to Molina?
Lord Clarendon says there has been "no dis
gnis ” with the United Stutes Government—
We submit now, whether it is not incumbent
upon Mr. Marcy to show that there has been
no-disguise”—no double fn’cedness—no double
dealing abroad—and at, home—on his part?
