The following text is presented here in complete form, as it originally appeared in print. Spelling and typographical errors have been preserved as in the original.

LET US FRIGHTEN THEM. – This is virtually the language of a portion of the Breckinridge party at the South, spoken with reference to the Republicans. As an instance, we copy the following deliberate statement from the Charleston’s Mercury’s review of the political aspects of the times, and we bespeak for it the candid attention of all our readers:

The Presidential election turns upon a single fact. If the Northern people believe that the Southern people will dissolve their connection with them, should the Black Republican party succeed in electing Lincoln to the Presidency – Lincoln will be defeated. Should they, on the contrary, believe that the Southern people will submit to Black Republican domination, by the election of Lincoln to the Presidency – Lincoln will be elected.
