Uov. Seeder /Removed. The President has removed Gov, Keeder. His offence was simply obeying the laws of the land, and desiring to prevent their violation by others.. As ihe MissQuri'mob who call themselves the Kansas Legislature express it,-he has proved a *crog'lo their proslavery/legislation, and therefore they despatched one of their number to Washington to ask President Pierce to remove him—and he promptly complied with their demand. The intelligence of this new outrage, though anticipated, will fall like a thunderbolt among the .people! of the North. Whatever may be the; reasons assigned for his removal, the real ohVis his resistance of the unlawful acts of the slave-drivers. This everybody feels, and so perfectly justifiable does his conduct with almost as much unanimity as their party appear, that the Democratic papers of Pcnnsylvania have ventured to endorse his course endorsed that of President Pierce,'in the. State Convention. And the people of Pennsylvania, of eve...

. The Evening Port on Platforms. There is much wholesome truth in the fillowing extract frpm that old and able Deriocratic papcr/the New-York Evening Pott. In a Convention of the Democrats of our State, called ^stjbefore the nomination, and but.little- more than a year before the election of a President of the United States, is the Slavery coutfovcrsy to be treated as if it had no existence, or is to be slurred over with ambiguqusjwords that bear a double meaning ? Wejare pretty confident that the Convention will hot be; guilty of the madness of approving! thq course of the Administration in the Nebraska affair; its members will understand that the public opinion will not endure an outrage of that oature; but will a Convention iasBehibled; for political objects fairly represent jhe will of the people, if j it separated without pronouncing an emphatic judgment on the-qucstion of Slavery- in t^ic Territories ? ; Lslst year ' the question of the Repeal or Restoration jqf the Miss...
