f Abolitionism, and it bases the foul slander upon the fact that James T. Brady, the Breckinridge candidate for Governor in 1860, and always an uncertain, unreliable politician, who never possessed the sympathy or confidence of his party, and John Van Buren, the erratic Prince of the house of Kinderhook, whose irregular, free and easy habits of life and political inconsistencies have rendered him a burden and source of anxiety to any party, attended and took an active part in an Abolition war meg the country to destruction, and of the glorious old party of the Constitution, whose traditions give the lie to the Tribune's assertion, we hurl back the foul slander into the teeth of its author. Whatever such shifting weathercocks as John Van Buren may say or do, the great Democratic heart beats true to the principles of constitutional liberty as taught by the fathers, which include the sovereignty of the States, the freedom of speech and of the press, the subordination of the military

In a speech at the Union League meeting, in New York, John Van Buren said: I do not think it to be a criminal offence to be thinking about who shall be the next President of the United States. I believe the John Van Buren said: I do not think it to be a criminal offence to be thinking about who shall be the next President of the United States. I believe the next President will be a Democrat. I think so because the great masses of the people are rather that way, and the Democrats are rather more familiar with the administration of the Government, and more clever, in my judgment, in the exercise of power than their opponents. But I doubt if the next President will be the candidate of the Democratic party I do not believe that any party organization will succeed as in the past.
my family, that safety which even the Turk affords ministers of religion, and the privilege of worshiping God according to the dictates of my condolence. Bad opening for the Union League-a mass meeting Beckon up. The Union Leagues in the North are coming to grief. A mass meeting, intended to be the opening of a series by the Union Leagues, was attempted in Utica, N. Y., a few days ago. The troubles of the day commenced by the infidelity of some of the Leaguers, among whom were John Van Buren, Brady, Daniel S. Dickinson, George Bancroft, and others, who entirely failed to appear and enlogize the "glorious old flag" as they had agreed to do. The League had paid the expenses of a large number of returned soldiers to Utica to join in the demonstration, but these heroes, it seems, played a very unfair game with their confiding employers. The Observer says: Early in the afternoon the soldiers began to "show their hand." The New York Zouaves procured a banner bearing a hands
hey must confess, were turned on peace. Among these penitent sinners was our frail and fallen friend of the New York Express. The truculence begotten by Sumter coned rapidly out at his fingers ends; the sword in his hand was exchanged for the plowshare, and the spear for the pruning hook; the volcano which had belched forth floods of smoke and lava became apparently extinct, and the vine and the olive grew peacefully on its frowning sides, whilst beneath their sheltering shades Brooks, John Van Buren & Co., gentle shepherds, sat and piped strains of harmony and love. But alas for human nature! A sad commodity at the best! And not much improved by a New York atmosphere! Not favorably developed by the career of a politician! The penitent Brooks has fallen from grace again, and like all reformed sinners, when they fall, he has become ten-fold more the progeny of Satan than before. Like the man deserted for a time by one devil, and having the chambers of his soul swept and garn

On the evening of Friday, the 7th instant, Continental Hall, Philadelphia, was crowded to overflowing to listen to an address from the Hon. John Van Buren, of New York. A rabid Lincoln sheet takes the following notice of tthe Hon. John Van Buren, of New York. A rabid Lincoln sheet takes the following notice of this speech: The speaker commenced by referring to the fact that in his own State there was but little doubt felt respecting the favorable termination of the election on Tuesday next favorable to the interests of the Democratic party. The feeling towards the present Administration, among the voters of his State, was such as to warrant the belief that the State would be carried by the Democracy by a triumphant majority. The speaker then read, much to the amusement of the audience, a
