The Journal essays the opinion that Douglas would give his right hand to be beyond the reach of the storm which is to follow! Douglas is not the man to shun storms, come from what quarter they may. The storms which free soil whigery raises to subserve its purposes he has buffeted for twenty years, and in every instance triumphed.-- This will not be an exception to the rule. With the PEOPLE at his back, the malevolence of the foes of the democracy cannot reach him. He defends the right, and the country will stand by him, despite the clamor of demagogues, and the wily efforts of free soil whigery, which seeks its profit in the sacrifice of popular sovereignty and the harmony of the confederacy.
