WEBSTER'S DEATH-ITS POLITICAL EFFECT. Tho question is osketl on nil sides, what effect will thodenth of Mr, Wr nnm have on the Presi dential canvass? In our bumble opinion it will not change the probabilities in any of iho S'ates of the Union, except possibly in Georgia and Alabama. In Massachusetts, tho Scott ticket was sure of a plural ity of about on oilO. Now tint the Wkbitkr lickot is d'siioscd of by bin death, the result mny be an increase of the plurality for Scott, but it does not make the State any mro sura for the Whigs, In New York, llie Wkhsteu movement was confined to a few permits, and bad no ndvucn'e even in tho papers that urged his claims brote tlio Whig National Cntivention. We regard thai State as sure for Scott by many thomanda, and it was not supposed thnt this movement would draw i tr more ih in two or three thousand, nmi that, nl most exclusively in New York city. It is possible that, in a very clso race, iho Vr,nTrn ticket might have secured enough Whin to have changed Iho re-fiilf, but this wnn not probable. In Georgia, the parties are so split up that the sharpest politician does not know how to classify them.

It fa a d nnoi "The Whigs had rained a very pretty Ash pole on ono corner, in ibis same village nf Springboro. The Locos gut together Irom this and adjoining town ships, in sufficient numbers lo raise a Hickory on the ppostte comer.

There are some men who become so desperately wlckud, so far gone in Iniquity, that thoy throw off all disguise, all pretence of decency, and openly avow tho moat obnoxious, and anti-American viewa. They not nnly confeaa this, but appear to riot and glory In their aliauio. So it is with ibe Statesman In relation to filibusteriim, and plundering generally. In an article on tlita aabject, we charged that Locofocoism, with Franklin Pierce at its bead, waa in fuvor of fitting out expedition! from our citiea to attack the territory of nations with whicli wo ore at peace, and with which wo have treaties, wherein we have solemnly guarantied to them lhat we would prevent audi expe dition! from our territory. The term "fHibuiteriim" comprehends the whole idea. It means a total disre gard of tht) laws of nations a total ditregard of our solemn treaty stipulations, and a disposition to fit out from our ports, expeditions againat the cities and terri tory of other nations, for the purpose of seizing them nnd appropriating them to our own oso. It meana a bold avowal of tho doctrines that governed the famous Buccaneer pirates who bo long held away in the Weit India Islands, and spread terror and dismay over tho fairest, richest portions of the Western Continent. Under the thin pretence of patriotism, it tramples under foot the moat aacrrd of all safeguards to liberty. It violates treaties and laws, under pretence of putting down tyrants, who also violate tho same. It makes brute force, and not law, the controlling power, nnd thus sanctions and upholds the very foundation and essential element of all tyranny. There is no such thing at tiberly without law. And the parly which starts out with the theory that It ia right to violate law, to trample upon treaties, to set tho laws of nations nt defmnco, is aiding tyrants and despotisms, every where, and doing far more to demoralize and destroy true liberty, than it can possibly do to build U up by all ite humbug pretences of regard for freedom and hatred of oppression. It Btrikcs at the root of all freo government, nnd justifies the most outrageous tyranny. Such is " fillibusterism." And when the Statesman finds its party and its leader charged.with it, what is its defence! Hear itt " The Journal need not waste strength and lavish ink to enM that such aro the principles of ihe American Uemocracy, young and old." Again " Charge all thnt, as often ns you please j you need not spend lime to prove it." The Statesman declares that these nro the sentiments of Framcmh Pixrcr, that he is a ftlH buster, nnd that, if he is elected President of ih United States those filibustering expeditions will he en couraged, fostered and upheld ! Thn avowal has, at least, tho merit of boldnes. Nobody cau, hereafter, Bay that lhey have been decetv- tt. The plain, naked question, ia here presented to the people of Ohio, Do you dosiro to approve theao views? Do yon wish to give your sanction to this policy for our government ? We have treaty stipulations with Spain, and are bound lo protect the territory of that nation ngainst armed piratical expeditions from our porta. Our Government must put snch armed bands down by force, if necessary, or stand op before the world and refuse to do II, By I refusing we fn effect declare war. We put ourselves out of the pale of civilized nationa. We refuse to recognise the binding force and validity of treaties.

Let tu be fully underlined. Let no lying scoundrel go about and miarepreaent ui on this subject. Let us state our idee of sympathy, and ibe way we may le gaily and morally exercise it.

The United States hnaalwaya claimed thii right. Oen Scott hna fought for it, and on the deck of a Britiab ihip.'Vheu a prisoner, he vindicated it, when he pro tected the poor Irishmen who were under him.

Editor Ohio State Journal Sir: Will you permit an old Waahington, Jetleraon and Madiaon Republican, through ibe medium of your paper, to offer a few thoughts to Freosoilera and Anti-ilavery men, on tho subject of the pending Presidential elee tion T I profess to be as old, and aa consistent and uniform a Freetoiler, and am ns radically opposed to hitman slavery, nnd to nil " compromiiei," except the neceaia ry compromises in the National Constitution itself. My judgment, on this qneation, waa eatahlished during the agitation of the fur-famed " Missouri Question," in 1810-20. I then thought, and atill think, that slavery should have been forever confined to its original limits, unless the people of the slave States should take measures for aboliihing it (Acre which, doubtless, aome of them would have doue, long ere this, if it had been thus confined. For it is not the pecuniary interest in slave labor, that lies at the bottom, in all effort a to extend the ay item, but that unfortunate "compromise," in tho Constitution, which aecurea to communitiea holding this " property," a preponderance of political power. And, had our Southern brethren possessed an equal share of that pure patriotism which induced the freemen of the North to accept tbut provision, they would themselves, long since, have proposed aome amend-ment to renounce tho odious distinction, ao degrading to true dignity, and to every just seme of Republican equality nmong American freemen, Hut the evil is upon ua, and there are but two practi cable remedies for it Revolution or Non-Extension. No good citizen of tho North, would propose ihe former f yet all such may, nnd every fii f " patriotism nud national justice should, impel them to cooperate in favor of the latter nnd timo, patience and persever ance will, most assuredly, secure ihe object. Here the inquiry suggest itself: How ia thii to be effected! I anawer emphatically, by all who truly sympathize in thii matter acting unitedly, and voting together Id all our national elections. I believe tt Is generally, If not universally, conceded, thnt the Whig party ia tho conservative party of thii country and that their policy ia best adapted to the practical, permanent good of the country. It la alio well known, that all its Northern adherenta, at leait, are reliably sound on Una most exciting of all questions of National interest, or feeling. We, all of ns, know full well tlmt General Scott or Franklin Pierce moat be the next President. None of atippoae that there is even n possibility of electing Hale, the man of your first choice. Wo likewise know, lhat the manner of bestowing or withholding our vote, muit, In all proba bility, catiae the election of a friend or an enemt. The position if these candidate! is now known to the American people. On nil qtieslions of national policy, held in common by tho Whig! and Freeaoilera, a Protective Tariff, Nntional Internal Improvementa, including Western Lakes, Harbors, and ihe channels of Western Rivera, those grcnt arteries of our commerce, together with tho Land Reform, General Scott ia believed to be strictly orthodox ) and upon the sub ject of Slavery Extension, his aympathiea are all on ihe side of freedom, fully coinciding with every just feeling of the North. Pierce, on the contrary, by hia every public act and vote, has ever uatslned the op. posite position. His votes in Congress are all recorded againat these vital principles of national policy, and nf Weatern interests and improvements and upon the question of slavery, who is more bigoted than he 1 Tbe record shows that he voted with the South against tht right of petition, ami that alt hia sympathies and acta have tended, if thoy were not thui designed, to con ciliate Southern men, and to pander to their imperi-oua, though unjust and demoralizing demanda. Abun dant evidence evidence that cannot be controverted, has been freely spread before na during the progress of thii campaign. Further it is known that General Scott, although a soldier of almost nnequaled merit, is eminently a " peace maker, and on several occasions, by hia akillful and diplomatic management, has prevented hia country from becoming involvtd in tho calamities of protracted war. On tbe other band, It la shameleBily proclaimed in tbe highest organ of the Democratic party (their Review fertile present month) thnt Pierce's sym pathies aro all in fivor of Rtvolutionary Fillibusterism! and that the conquest and annexation of Cuba, with its immense slave population the violent seizure of the Loboa (guano) Islands ihe annexation of the Sandwich Islands, nnd tho control of the government of Central America ! are to bo among tbe events with which the Deinorrncy is tn glorify itself during the four years of anticipated administration of Frank Pierce. Nor is this all. " The colonists of Australia" ((quote from tbe Review) " fermenting with our Californian free-compniiiomhtp, are already about setting on foot a Revolution in that distant island continent," in which the sympathies and aul of llie doughty General Pierce nre to bo efficiently co operative 1 1 The Reviewer after becoming largely iidlitrd, arrivea nt ibia concloaion: " It remains for Pierce, the stnmlard bearer of American progress, to bring these matters nil right ! " My friends, for such I must bo permitted In style yon, and such we truly nre, in every patriotic ioitinct, although, deeming It nnnecessary and unwiae, 1 have not united In the separate organization of your party, believing that every practicable, auhitanlial benefit we aeek, would be more easily and surely achieved by cooperating quietly and peraeveringly in the wiae and consistent policy of our Whig friends " My friends," I repeat, I have hastily laid before you, in thia hrief article, what I conacientiotialy believe tn be ihe true posit inns of tho two prominent candidates for the Presidency. The policy which will gov ern each, if elected, is so distinctly nnd plainly indicated, thnt "he who mna mny rend," and "wayfaring men, though fools, ennuot err therein." What, ihen, ia tbe solemn duty of American free men, in thia important crisis? It does appear to me ihnt there can be but one response in thn deliberate judgment of every lover of justice, ot morality, of free dom! ! General Witi field Scott ia the only man from whom any progress ia to he hoped for, on ibe preaent occasion, and 1 trust that many of you will march boldly to the polls, on the second proximo, and with me cast a willing vote for the noble Patriot and Heio, who has reflected more honor upon bin country, than nny man living. A FREESOIL WHIG. General Houston hns arrived nt his home in Texas, completely disrournged with the prospects uf 1'txnci and KtKO, many of bia southern meetings being entire failures. General Scott wns welcomed back to Washington by an immense ansemblsge of citiiena, on Frl- Ho ii lh head of the establishment that manu-idny last. He waa addressed by tbeex Mayor of Wssh- l ington, la an eloquent speech. THE LAND Jtf FORMERS. A committee of ihe " Land Reformers " of the city and county of Now York, devoted to the cause of 41 the freedom of the public lnndi in limited quanti- tiea, to actual settlers only," publish an address in the Sew York Tribune, signed hy twenty-five names, in which thoy advise their friendsio vote for Gen. Scott. Referring to the three candidates in the field for ihe office of President, thoy proceed to say: " As between these candidates, ia there anv chnirnf if so, what ia it 1 We think there ia, and we advise all Land Reformer! to vote directly for tbe candidate of the Whigs. In bia letter accepting the nomination, he ban unreservedly and unequivocally declares! him self in favor of ihe aettlement of Ihe Pubho Dumaiu hy actual occupnnts only, consistent wiih Ihe equal rights of ihe whole people iu lhat great nntional inheritance. Pierce, nu tbe conirnry, is not merely silent, but in his letter of acceptance mnnt unqualifiedly given the approval or bia judgment to tbe platform of principles ndopted by the Convention which nominated him, one of the planks of which is a resolution going as far sa nny resolution can go, to sustain and continue the traffic in ibe public lands as a means of raining revenue to meet Ihe expenses of the National Govern in Mil.

The Judge reserved ihe case for decision at the October lertn, and accordingly yesterday he pronounced hia derision, which waa decidedly adverse to the Church South, The decision was quite long, going over tho case in detail, and giving the ground of decision on each point.
