Mr. Fillmore’s Northern Supporters.
The Restoration of the Missouri Compromise.
It is denied that Miliafd Fillmore is in favor
•of the restoration of the Missouri Compromise.
We pass by the fact that in all the campaign
speeches he denounced its repeal, as the cause
‘of all the strife and confusion in the country;
aud is bound as an honest man and patriot to
‘restore it, if he can. We choose to try him by
another test. If all his Northern supporters
arc in favor of its restoration, it makes very
little difference what are his individual opinions
;as he is.plegded against the exercise of the veto
jpower and would not exercise it if his party
‘were to pass an act restoring it.

ADMISSION OF KANSAS.
The first question being on motion of Mr.
•Dunn to add an additional section to the m
structious offered by Mr, Stephens, it was re
ported by the Clerk, as follows:
Sec. 18. And be it further exacted, That so
much of the 14th section and of the 32d section
•of the act passed at the first session of the 33d
Congress, commonly called the Kansas and Ne
braska act, as rends as follows: “Except the
Bth section of the act preparatory to the ad
miss ion of Missouri into the Union, approved
March 9, 1820, which being inconsistent with
the principle of non intervention by Congress
with slavery in the States aud territories, as
recognized by the legislation of 1850, common
ly called the Compromise measures,’ is hereby
declared inoperative and void: it being the true
intent and meaning of this act not to legislate
slavery into any State or Territory, or to ex
clude it therefrom, but to leave the people
thereof perfectly free to form and regulate their
domestic institutions in their own way, subject
■Only to the constitution of the United
Provided, That notining herein contained shall
be construed to revive or put in force any law
or regulation which may have existed prior . to
the act of the 6 of march 1820, either pro
tecting, establishing, prohibiting or abolishing
slavery, be and the same is hereby repealed, pro
vided that any person or persons lawfully held
to service within cither of the Territories nam
ed in said act shall be discharged from such
service, if they shall not be removed and kept
out of said Territories within twelve months
from the passage of this act.

Here then is the test vote on the restoration
of the Missouri Restrieteon. The amendment
of Mr. Dunn, of Indiana, who is a Fillmore elec
tor, for the State at large,Jnot only proposed to
repeal those sections of the Nebraska Kansas
act which repealed the Missouri Compromise,
and thereby restore it, but also to set all slaves
free in Kansas aud Nebraska who were not re
moved from those Territories in twelve months
from the passage of the amendment. How
did Millard Fillmore’s Northern supporters
vote on this test question ?
It its difficult to ascertain who are his North
ern supporters. We take it for granted that
jill those members of Congress who voted for
Nathaniel P Banks, the amalgamationist, are
not his supporters. They all voted for Dunn’s
amendment however, and we are perfectly will
in<jp to give Mr. Fillmore as many of them as
Ills friends claim. They all unanimously voted
for the restoration of the Missouri Restriction.
But we will not hold Mr. Fillmore responsible
for the votes of these abolitionsts. .
If Mr. Fillmore has any supporters in Con
gress they must be found among those who vo
ted for Henry M Fuller, of Pa., for Speaker,
who was‘a candidate of the South Americans.
We have taken great pains to find out who
these men are by carefully examing the various
votes given for Speaker in the Congressional
-Globe During the different ballotings the
following gentlemen voted for Henry M Fuller
t 0 Messrs Bradshaw, Broom, J H Campbell,
‘Covode, Dick, Edie, Knight, Kunkel, Millward
Pearce, Purveance, Ritchie, Robers, Robison,
‘Todd Tyson, of Pennsylvania.
Messrs. II Bennett Bayard Clark, Edwards,
Haven, Patton, Yalk and Whitney, of New
Messrs Ball, Harrison, and Moore, of Ohio,
and Scott, of Indiana—2l.
Messrs. John P Campbell, Cox, Etheridge,
A K Marshall, H Marshall, Rivers, Swope,
and Underwood, of Kentuckey.
Messrs II W Davis, J M Harris, Hoffman,
Ricaud, of Maryland.
Messrs Kennett, Lindley and Porter, of
Messrs. Ready, Sneed and Zollicoffer of Ten
Messrs. Paine, Puryer and Reed, of North
Messrs. Foster and Trippe of Georgia.
Messrs. W 11 Smith and Walker, of Ala
Messrs. Carlisle pf Virginia, Evans of Texas
Eustis of Louisiana, Lake of Mississippi, and
Cullen of Dalaware —31.
Now by reference to the vote on Dunn’s
amendinent it will be seen that every solitary
supporter of Henry M Fuller, for Speaker,
from the Northern States, except Valk, of New
Ybrk, voted for the restoration of the Missouri
The evidence is conclusive that Millard Fill
more’s Northern supporters are all in favor of
the restoration of the Missouri Restriction.
There is another fact developed by this vote
worthy of special notice. Every Sonthem sup
porter of Millard Fillmore in Congress voted
against Mr. Duhn’s amendment, and thereby
declared that howeVer much Fillmore and his
Northern friends may denounce that clause of
the Nobraska Kansas act repealing the Mis
souri compromise, they were all for it, except
Cullen, of Delawere.
It is another noted fact that every Democrat
in Congress, who voted, voted with the South
ern members against Dann’s amendment* and
against the restoration of the Missouri Compro
mise, except Oliver, of New Yc^.
These votes conclusively show what North
ern party is friendly to the South. Let us re
Every Southern member of Congress, who
voted, voted against Dunn’s amendment, except
Cullen, of Delaware.
Every Northern Democrat who voted, voted
against Dunn’s amendment, except Andrew
Oliver, of New York.
Every. Northern member of Congress, not a
Democrat, who voted, voted in favor of Dunn’s
amendment, except Valk, of New York.
Every Northern supporter of Millard Fill
more, in Congress, jsvho voted, voted with the
abolitionists, in favor of Dunn’s amendment,
except Valk, of New York.
These are taken from the public records and
we defy any friend of Millard Fillmore to dis
pute their literal accuracy. They show th at
while the Southern members of Congress are
united in favor of the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise, they have no friends and suppor
ters in the Northern States except the suppor
ters of James Buchanan. Times <s• Sentinel.

WILLIAMSVILLE, Aug. 6,185 G.
Mr. Editor; Please say to “Hardhead” of;
the American Union that I have seen his non- 1
sensical sycophantic and slanderous article and j
by way of retort will suggest that he soften his 1
head and attack my political position, not my I
franchise principles. If he is disposed to dis- j
cuss politics let him come to the questions, say ;
in a few words whether or not the repeal of the j
Missouri restriction is a Pandoras’ box, out of;
which slavery agitation originated, whether or!
not he will restore the restriction for the sake
of peace; whether or not he can advocate the
principles of a platform which the Chronicle
and Sentinel said could not thrive in a Southern
soil. Whether or not he still adheres to the
Georgia Platform of ’SO. Whether or not he
still regards all opposition to the principles of
the Kansas Nebraska act in relation to slave
ry as hostility to the Constitutional rights of
the South, and all persons who partake in such
opposition as unlit to be members of the Amer
ican party. “Hardhead” might have been less
calumnious in his debut if he stands with the
South on the above questions, lie and I can!
still give Sams grip, otherwise there is an im- 1
passible gulf between us, as I am determined |
to support that party whose political principles,
best subserve Southern interests. ‘Hardhead,’,
softhoad, Sam or the Devil to the contrary not
withstanding. ‘Hardhead’ charges me truly |
when he says I was an advocate for Sam, so 11
remained until his death, after which I parti
cipated in his burial, and the expectation ofhis !
Will, one article of which was a dissolution of ■
the oaths Which permitted us to vote as free !
men. “Hardhead also charges me with being j
connected with Van Buren, Reeder, &c. —l j
will simply say that a man who lives in a glass
house, should not cast stones, a word to the
wise is sufficient. J. A. WILLIAMS.
We find the following letter from Mr.
Tombs, says the Constitutionalist, published in
the New York Herald, in company with a letter
from Athens, Ga. :
Washington, I). C., July 8, 1856.
Dear Sir :—l received your letter of the Ist.
inst., together with its enclosures. Your letter to
the London Times has become unnecessary, as you
will perceive from the present state of the ques- j
tions, discussed, and, besides, it is altogether too
complimentary to me, for me to have any agency 1
in sending it As I supposed, when I wrote you,
’ public opinion in England is right in regard to our
difficulties, and has made itself felt in Parliament,
and even the great Thunderer, (the Times) feels j
and bows to it. Our danger is not from abroad, it;
is at home. The election of Fremont would be the j
end of the Union, and ought to be. The object of j
Fremont’s friends is the conquest of the South. 1 j
am content that they shall own us when they con-;
quer us, but not before.

We extract from the news department of the
Chronicle if Sentinel , of 20th July,- the following
“Hon. Oscar F. Moore, the present‘Republican’
member of Congress from the Ross district, in Ohio
has declared himself against Fremont, and will
take the stump for Fillmore.”

We have often been surprised on visiting the warehouses
of the larger dealers in Drugs in our principal cities, to see
the immense quantities of those very popular medicines,
“Dr. M’Lane’s Celebrated Vermifuge aud Liver Pills,” piled
upontheif floors, their very beautiful labels, and the clean,
neat boxes, make a highly imposing appearance. We think
Fleming Brothers, of Pittsburg, who are the manufactured
and proprietors of these justly celebrated medicines, deserve
much credit for the neatness with which they place them
befoi-e the public ; in our mind it is a guarantee of the pu
rity and care with which they are prepared. We are told
that a bungling and washy imitation has lately made its ap
pearance. Purchasers had better look to it. See that each
wrapper is sigued “Fleming Bros.”

To your inquires I would reply, that I first commenced
using Prof. Wood’s*Hair Restorative, my hair was almost
white and had been so for the last ten years, and it was
very thin on the top of my head, and very loose, and pulled
out freely; but I found before 1 had used all of the second
bottle, (which was eight weeks,) my hail- was entirely
changed to its original color, (light brown) and is now free
from dandruff,and quite moist, lfiave had my hair cut 5
or 6 times since the change, and have never seen anything
like white hair starting from tlie roots: aud it is now as
thick as it ever was, and does not come out at all. It has
prevailed in my case all that I could wish to ask.

Gabdinkr, Maine, June 22,1854.
Dear Six- I have used two bottles of Prof. Wood’s Hair
Restorative,and can truly say. it is the greatest discovery
of the age, for restoring and changing the hair
Before using it, I was as gray as a man of seventy. My hair
has now attained its original color. You can recommend
it- to the world,without the least fear, as my case was one
of the worst kind.
D N MURPHY.
St. Louis, March 7 1854.
Prof. Wood: My hair commenced falling off some three
or four years since, and continued to do so, untill I became
quite bald. I tried all the popular medicines ot the day,
but lo no elfect. At last, 1 was induced to try your celebra
ted Hairßestorative,and am happy to say, it is doing won
ders. 1 have now a fine growth of young, hair, and cheer
fully recommend its use to all similarly afflicted.
A. C. WILLIAMS, 133 Second street.
Basin Mich., Aug. 1855.
This is to certify, that one jxar ago, I was quite gray,
and my hair so thin upon the top of my head, that I feared
its entire loss. In this condition, I applied for and obtain
ed a bottle of Frot. Wood’s ‘ Itestorative? and before 1 had
used one quart bottle, the gray hairs had entirely disap
peared and it had thickened up, so as to he full as usual and
it assumed a glossy appearance, gppeareully more beautiful
than ever it was before. Ido therefore, cheerfully recom
mend it to all those ladies who value a beautiful head of
hair. I will also state that I uso it now, occasionally, for
its healthy arid beautifying effects.

COTTON HARVESTER, FOR PICKING
COTTON IN THE FIELD.
THIS valuable machine, second only to the invention of
the Cotton Gin, is destined to produce a remarkable
change in the method of gathering cotton from the field
It will do the work of from three to five hands in picking
cotton from the stalk, and is evidently a lalwir-savung ma
chine. Its benefit to the Planter Is incalculable. It picks
the cotton clean and free from trash, leaves it in excellent
condition for ginning—obviates the necessity of exposing
the hands to heavy dews, rains and cold, and from the ra
pidity of its work, Will enable the Planter to prepare his
urop for market at an early day, leaving him time for the
improvement of his land, houses, enclosures and general
arrangement of the Plantation.
* is light, weighing about 8 pounds, is suspended by a
strap over the shoulders,and is operated by means of a crank
tiimed by the hand or fingers. The simplicity of this ma
chine is its leading feature—it is not liable to get out of or
der, and any negro of ordinary capacity, is competent to
use it; One harvester, with proper care, will last a series
of years: ; (
We are now seuirtg State and County Rights for the mam
tifa'cuife and use of the above machine. Any infomatioa
relative thereto,can be obtained by calling on A. Wilfibur,
