For the Empire State.
A. A. Ganlding, Esq—
Sir : I will ask the privilege of your col
umns to join issue with the Editor of the Amer
ican Union, on an editorial of his of the 26th
of July, in which lie has undertaken to prove
Ms riatform a better one for the South than
the one adopted at Cincinnati ; but instead of
proving what he set cut to. do, he has digress
ed far from his subject, and is pricking at the
old wound made on his political body last Feb
ruary by the repudiating of the American Plat
form of June, 1855, and which he has done all
he could, or at least all he to heal, but
his applications being only ISew \ork Freesoil
and Tennessee Grease, have proved thus far en
tirely futile in making a permanent cure, and
he is trying to see what effect it will have on
his wounds by contrasting his Platform with
that adopted by his political opponents at Cin
cinnati ; and if he does not do better than in
the article above mentioned, he will fail to con
vince the minds of the American Party, tlio’
it may be an unction to his own soul, and I
hope he will produce some argument of suffi
cient strength contrasting his Platform with
the one adopted at Cincinnati, so as to give me
a chance to join issue with him on the subject,
which I would be glad to do at an early date,
until which I will drop that part of the subject,
and turn my attention to that which seems so
near the gentleman’s heart, to wit : the repu
diation of the Platform of ’55, and the adop
tion of his Platform. I will endeavor to show
wherein the American. Party has lost bv the
repudiation, not believing, however, that I shall
make it sufficiently plain for the Editor of the
American Union to see it through the cobwebs
of “party” which surround his political vision,
but to show him that some of the American
Party will not repudiate the old Platform and
accept his, but will try to find one which bet
ter coincides with their feelings.
The 12th resolution of the Platform of June,
1855, reads as follows: “The American Party
having risen upon the ruins of, and in spite of
the opposition of the Whig and Democratic
Parties, cannot be held in any manner respon
sible for the obnoxious acts and violent pledges
of either, and the systematic agitation of the
slavery question to those parties having elevat
ed sectional hostility into a positive element of
political power, and brought our institutions in
to peril, it has therefore become the imperative
duty of the American Party to interpose and
give peace to the country, and prosperity to
the Union ; and as experience has shown it
impossible to reconcile opinions so extreme as
those which separate the disputants, and as
there can be. no dishonor in submitting to laws,
the National Council has deemed it the best
guarantee of common justice and of future
]>eacc, to abide by and maintain the existing la ic s
upon the subject of slavery, as a final and con
clusive settlement of that subject in spirit and in
substance, and regarding it the highest duty to
avow their opinions on a subject so important
in distinct aoul unequivocal terms, it is hereby
declared as the sense of this National Council,
that Congress has no power under the Constitu
tion to legislate upon the subject of slavery in the
States where it docs or may exist, or to exclude
cm/ Mate from admission into the Union be
cause its Constitution does or does not recognize
the institution of slavery as a part of its social
system ; and expressly pretermitting an expres
sion of opinion upon the power of Congress to
establish or prohibit slavery in any territory, it
is the sense of this National Council, that Con
gress ought not to legislate upon the subject of
slavery within the Territories of the United
States, and that any interference by Congress
with slavery as it exists in the District of Co
lumbia, would be a violation of the spirit and in
tention of the compact by which the State of iSla
i yland ceded the District to the United States ,
and a breach of the National faith”
These are the words of the 12tli resolution,
which the Editor of the American Union repu
diates so readily for the Ith resolution of his
Platform ; and for fear some may cavil, and
think it is not really the 12th resolution of the
old Platform, because it is published in a De
mocratic paper, I will state for their benefit,
that it is copied from the Chronicle & Sentinel
of June the 20th, 1855, which certainly would
not falsify any thing to the injury of its party.
No true American need be ashamed of that
Now I will give all in his Platform that ;
‘ squints’’ at the slavery question, for there is j
nothing in distinct and unequivocal terms, that ’
the recognition of the right of the native born
and the naturalized citizens of the United
States, permanently residing in any Territories
thereof, to frame their Constitution and laws,
and to regulate their domestic and social af
fairs in these, or made subject only to the Fed
eral Constitution, with the right of admission
whenever they have the requisite population
for one Representative in Congress. 1 ask any
candid reader is there any thing in the above
saying Congress shall not legislate on the sub
ject in the Territories of the United States ?
Oh, says one, it says the right to regulate their
domestic and social affairs.* Well, what does
that mean ? Did it mean what the 12th reso
lution did ? Yes. Well, why not put it in
plainer terms ? There is only two reasons that
I can see for not doing it. The Freesoil wing
of the American Party can hold it up to their
fanatic constituents at the North, “no slavery
mentioned here ; they perfectly repudiate the
slavery question in their Platform ; give you
all you ask for the sake of the Union.” Yet
the Editor of the Union compares his oppo
nent’s Platform to a “Piebald.” I thank thee,
Durr, for that word suits you exactly. The
other reason, and the one I reckon that influ
enced the Avise minds at Philadelphia, to put in
just so many words, Avas to set an economical
example to the public in condensing their Plat
form into as small a place as possible, and to
give more room in their columns for windy ar
tides on “Americans shall rule America,” as
t hough we Avere under the government of a for
eign Potentate ! Does it say that Congress
shall not have power to interfere with slavery
Avliere it does exist ? If it does, I tvould like
to see it. Or does his ‘Piebald’ Platform say
Congress shall not legislate on slavery in the
District of Columbia ? No, not so much as
‘squints’ at it 1 the Editor of the American
Union well knows 1 The Abolitionists have
long contended for that one thing, and .all oth
er parties have denied Congress the right to in
terfere with slavery in the District, in as bold
language as his Party did in their old Platform,
and quoted above. But his Platform has given
this bone of contention to the beloved of the
North as a sweet morsel they have long wished
to roll under their tongues for lo these many
years ; and in return, they were expected to
take a dose of “Oil” from Tennessee, and who
knows but the wise heads which framed ms
Platform, expected said dose of “Oil” to re
turn them the bone again at some future time,
Avith good interest ?
The Platform of 1855 not only agreed to
abide by, but to maintain the existing laws on
the slavery question as a final and conclusive
settlement ol the subject in spirit and in sub
Now what does the 13tli resolution of his
Platform say 1 I will not, however, trespass
upon the readers of your valuable paper by
quoting all the resolutions, but will only quote
sufficient to show what a great difference there
is in the two Platforms. In reference to this
question, it says, “opposition to the reckless
and unwise policy of the present Administra
tion, as shown in re-opening sectional agitation
by the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and
us shown in the vascilating course on the Kan
sas and Nebraska question.”
Thus spoke the builders of his Platform !
What an “about face” in less than nine months!
In June, 1855, they endorsed the Compro
mise Measures, the repeal of the Missouri Com-1
promise, and the Kansas Nebraska question.— !
In February, 1856, they abuse the present Ad-;
ministration for passing those very measures ! j
11 is not necessary here for me to speak of the |
present Administration ; but suffice it to say, i
that in the repeal of the Missouri Compromise,!
an odious restriction against the South was re
moved from off the Territories. So thought
the American Party last year, and now very
few will endorse it. Why ? Decause we had
to do as we have done to carry a Northern State,
and to male cur Parly a National one,
Probably you may carry a Northern State,
as I hear Fillmore and Fremont’s friends meet
on the 4th of this month in Pennsylvania to
unite for the purpose of defeating Buchanan.
A victory gained by such an union, would in
deed be in accordance with his Platform, and
you are welcome to all the honors accruing from
such an union, as far as lam concerned. But
1 know there are many of the old American
Party who will not endorse his ‘Piebald’ Plat
form, and would say to all of the American
Party yet on the old Platform, read with atten
tion the Piebald Platform, that Mr. Fillmore
so eagerly endorses, as well as expressing his
feelings and sentiments ; and if it contains his
views, the old cannot, for there is all the differ
ence between the two. This Piebald coincides,
to some extent , with the one on which Fremont
stands, or at least there seems to be a good deal
of sympathy between the two, as so many
Southern Americans desire to vote for Fillmore
side by side with Fremont, if he would but re
sign, and a great many wish that he would do
so, as it would greatly benefit Mr. Fillmore in
his hopeless cause.
Also, get the Platform of June, 1855, con
trast the two, and sec for yourselves if the par
ty you acted with last year have not repudiat
ed all of their principles, excepting their wild
hunt after Foreigners and Catholics !
“Disgust” after office was another of their
cardinal principles. Why it was not engrafted
in his Piebald Platform, I know not ; but per
haps in his future editorials in contrasting Plat
forms, he will give us the reasons, as it appears
to suit his feelings.
ltcmarkable. well I would like for him to
show those that are on his Piebald Platform :
where the Cincinnati Platform endorses Filli
busterism and Squatter Sovereignty, as he
thinks it is the principal ingredient of said Plat
form. So come up to the stake in your next
contrast, which I hope to see soon, as I have
taken up the gauntlet w h icli you have so galantly
thrown down ; and you would do more honor to
your feelings in battling for that, than pricking
nt the old wound of last February, of which
W. S. Jones, Editor of the Chronicle & Senti
nel, now a strong Fillmore paper, said, was not
at all adapted to Southern latitude, or indeed
in any latitude where the people possess suffi
cient patriotism to maintain the constitutional
rights of the South. What a comment on his
own paper, and many others in Georgia. I
endorse the Chronicle, and believe their asser
tions, and believe there arc many, very many
Americans South who will knock off the shack
les of party, and do the same next November.
DR. W. R. MOSELEY—Dear Sir: Having last year been
treated by you for a Cancer on my face, 1 feel it a duty
I owe to you, as well as the afflicted, to state to the public
generally, that I am entirely cured of that loathsome dis
ease which troubled me so long. The Cancer was on my
face near the left eye, and it has, by the application of your
medicine, been effectually cured without the use of the
knife. lam confident from experience, and from what I
hare seen of other cases, that your remedies are the least
painful, and the most effectual in removing Cancer, of any
other known in this countrv. Respectfully vours,
Witnessed by COLBERT GENTLE.
