In no Slave State did the supporters of Breckinridge unite in any Fusion movement whatever; and it was a very open secret that the friends of Breckinridge generally — at all events, throughout the Slave States--next to the all but impossible success of their own candidate — preferred that of the Republicans. The Washington Star, then a Breckinridge organ, noticing, in September, 1860, the conversion of Senator Clingman, of North Carolina, from the support of Douglas to that of Breckinridge, said: While we congratulate him on the fact that his eyes are at length open to the (to the South) dangerous tendency of the labors of Douglas, we hail his conversion as an evidence of the truth of our oft-repeated declaration, that, ere the first Monday in November, every honest and unselfish Democrat throughout the South will be found arrayed against Douglas-Freesoilism, as being far more dangerous to the Sou

He must be squelched, See Mayor Henry's speech; also his letter forbidding G. W. Curtis's lecture, pages 363-7. or there could be no further Union. Haman, surrounded by the power and pomp of his dazzling exaltation, bitterly says, All this availeth me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai, the Jew, sitting at the king's gate. Esther v., 13.

I knew of many who were in favor of the Union, but who were intimidated by threats, and by the odium attending it, from voting at all. Such was the case at thousands of polls throughout the South, or wherever the Confederates were strong enough to act as their hearts prompted.
