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. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Monday, June 30, 1856. 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of the 6 of march 1820, either pro tecting, establishing, prohibiting or abolishing slavery, be and the same is hereby repealed, pro vided that any person or persons lawfully held to service within cither of the Territories nam ed in said act shall be discharged from such service, if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 York. 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 Missouri. . Messrs. Ready, Sneed and Zollicoffer of Ten nessee. Messrs. Paine, Puryer and Reed, of North Carolina, Messrs. Foster and Trippe of Georgia. Messrs. W 11 Smith and Walker, of Ala bama. 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 Compromise. 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 capitulate: 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. [For the Empire State.] 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. Respectfully, Yours, R. Toombs. From the Times & Sentinel. \Vko Wants to Bet. Columbus, Aug. 1. 1856. Messrs Editors: —The Columbus Enquirer and other Fillmore papers in this State are at tempting to persuade the people that they have confidence in the election of Mr. Fillmore, by publishing the votes taken on Railroads, at Watering Places, going to Fish Traps, &c. &c. Now if any man has been persuaded that Mr. Fillmore will be elected, let him back his judg-| meut. 1 wll bet One Hundred Dollars that no man j can name three States which Fillmore will get. SIOO That no man can name four. SIOO That no man can name five. SIOO That no man can name six. SIOO That he don’t get six. SIOO That he don’t get seven. S6OO That he does not get a majority of the electoral vote. All the bets to be taken togbther. The money is in the Agency of the Bank of Char leston. Come and cover it. . FISH TRAP. Straws in the Wind. We extract from the news department of the Chronicle if Sentinel , of 20th July,- the following items : “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.” This is a delicious morsel for the I lllmore men. Moore will be the Adjutant of the Black Republi can regiment, under the command of that arch Ab olitionist, Thomas Corwin, of Ohio. “WxsHiNafoN, July 16.—The Pennsylvania del egation are prepaying a call for a Union Conven tion of Republicans, Americans, and all other ele ments opposed to the Administration’s policy and the Cincinnati platform, to meet at Harrishurg od the second Wednesday of September, for the pur pose of forming an electoral ticket, which shall rep resent these interests fairly, and concentrate all ef forts in one practical direction. ’Phis'movement finds favor generally, and inspires a confident hope of ultimate success.

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.” Persons will be careful to ask for DR. McLANE'S CELEBRATED VERMlFUGE,manufactured by FLEMING BRO., of Pittsburg, Pa. All.other Vermifuges in compari* son, are worthless. Dr. McLane’s genuine Vermifuge, also his celebrated Liver Pills, can now be had at all respectable Drug Stores. None genuine without the Signature of FLEMING BROS. Ilollowfy’s Ointment and TJlcer, Wound or Sore, even of 20 years standing, may be cured by these celebrated medicines.

Wood’s Hair Restorative, for producing hair on Bald Heads, and restoring Gray Hair to its Natural color. rpiIIS astonishing and unequalled preparation has never X failed to produce a growth on Bald Heads, when used according to tlie directions, and turn hair back to its orig. inal color, after having become grey, and reinstate it in all its original health, lustre, softness, and beauty. Removes atonceall scurf, and unpleasant itching, scrofula, crup tionsand feverish heat’ from the scalp. It also prevents the hair from becoming unhealthy and falling off', and hence acts as a perfect Hair invigorator and Tonic. A gentleman of Boston writes to his friends in New Bed ford thus: 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. July l, 1855. Yours&c. - 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. SARAH J.

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.
