The Will of the People. Democratic usage has established in this county and district, the caucus system aa the proper mode of ascertaining the will of the people,—that; is, that nominations should be made by conferees delegated with authority by the county convention, these conventions deriving sheir authority from a scries of primary township meetings. Against this method we have nothing to say. When it is uncorrupted it is a proper channel through which to ascertain the real wishes of the electors. But the abuses of this system are grievous wrongs upon popular rights. Against these we shall always set our faces. Yet the system itself cannot now be a subject of comment, nor even is the subject of this article an abuse of it The last nomination for Congress in this district was not made by the intervention of the usual primary meetings required by the caucus system, nor was it changed to suit the wishes of a few by any abuse of that system. It mas made indirect violation of th...

This Congresional District has long been looked opon with deep interest by the whole nation—wo have been divided to some extent, into three partics The Democratic Party, proper—the Free-Soil Party, and the Whig Party. For the purpose of distinction, the first of these have been known as the Hunkers. The present campaign was en-, terednpon with a candidate of each of these parties in the field.

An Appeal to the Frienda of Free Soil in the 12th Congressional District. _ ' For the Register. 4 A cause so sacred aa that of keeping our vast Territories uncontaminated by slavery and transmitting to our posterity the feitila neldai of the West, where they can earn their own bread and ait under their own vine and' fig-tree, without having' the frown of Jahovah resting upon them for their crnelty and injustice to their fellow man—is of too much importance to be treated lightly at this time; and should call forth our best judgment in regard to the course we should pursue in the Coming Election. How stands the case! The Hon. David Wilmot who has done so much for our couse is no-longer a candidate, and to fill his place in the councils of the nation they offer ma" Free Soil Cass man," by the name of G. A. Grow. Now, if Mr. Grow was a true friend to Free Soil, why were the dough-face Hunkers so anxious to have him take the place of Mr. Wilmot! Would they who are 60-great stickl...

Destructive Fire!! From tha Carbondale Journal.- - Our village has been the scene of the most destructive fire which has ever before occurred in it—in extent of territory, and value of property amounting to five times the damage to our village in 1846. The fire broke out about 11 odock in ihe barn belonging to the Carbondala House kept by Mr, Thomas.. The wind being from the west and the material so combustible, it gained the mastery of all efforts to confine it and- soon set fire to the Hotel and to the store of T^Dickson & Co. and the i^. Coal Company's Office. The heat became so intense that the Post Office across the street next caught fire, from wbich it spread north and south, and ran with such fury that the inhabitants: and shopkeepers had not time to secure their property from destruction.. From the Carbondale House the tiro in a southernly direction burnt the residence of Mrs. Kaynor, and the saddlery shop of Mr. Farnum. There being some fifty feet between M...
