CON'ORrss. The tesslon of Congress wh'th
commence to-day, will bo tho most memoi
ble which has jet occurred in tbla country,
under either the Atllclea of Confederation, f r
the present Constitution of the United State;,
not excepting even the session when the Dec
laration of Independence) wan agreed upon.
We have; eight times tho population which then
existed, to be aflecb-il by political events, and
the questions now presented for solution, are
more pregnant with lmmsdlale and practical
Now,-ai then, there Is a course of affilit
which Is Invincible la It general current, but
it may be partially modified by the policy ul
legislation, cleared of obstacle by a wise fort
eight, of dammed up for a brief period, only
to become at last a more Hweeping and des-
tractive flood.- Let us trust that a body which
ought to represent the intellect ot a great peo
ple and a great age, will rise to the) " height
of this great argument;" that tomo Mlrabeau
will appear' tat our National Assembly; and
that revolutionary events will be met with
revolutionary sagacity, promptness and coui
age. THE HEQBOES.
We publisti, on the outside, some interesting
and autbentio accounts of the behavior of the
negroes near Port Royal, and of the measure
being taken by tbe planters on thri coast cf
South Carolina and Georgia to pratant their
property of that description from falling Into
The letter pt General Drayton confirms th
statements made here about a week agoby a
lady just from that vicinity, that the majority
of the negroes are disposed to remain peace
ably upon ttatlr plantations, and to continue
their ordinary labors. Undoubtedly they ex
pect to be freed, or rath'r. they suppose them
selves to be already tree, by the flight of their
old masters and overseers. But Instead of
their proving to be ferocious savages."! tlooie.''
as the phrase is, to murder, ravish, and bum
as the case has been pictured to us in fancy
sketches, they prove to be docile and peace
able, just as we know the negro to be In plain
prse and matter of fact. Tbe same alarms
were sounded to the British people, while the
Emancipation Act was under discussion, but
the event proved that tbe eight hundred thou
sand negroes liberated uuder it, passed into the
condition of free lorn wilhjut a slaglj act of
violence, and they have proved themselvis,
now for more than thirty years, the most loyal
and law-abiding subjects of the DrltUh Crown.
The Fame thing has been true iu the more re
cent experience of tbe French colonies, and
wonld have been true of St Domingo, it eman
cipation there bad not been complicated with
wars between the whites and tbe free mulattoes,
and by the attempts of France to retain "its
hold of the island by force of arms. It will
prove to be true in this country, to whatever
extent emancipation may result, either from tbe
wise policy of those who wield national power,
or from the good fortune of events.
The coast planters In Georgia and South
Carolina, as well as the slaveholders of the
cities of Charlestons and Savannah, are, as will
be seen, hurrying off their slaves Into' the Inte
rior for sife-keeplng. Their masters, Instead of
drawing an Income from their labcr, must now
feed and clothe them, in the hope of the return
of the time when they may be worked cgaln.
The losses of the planters, wherever our ar
mies go in regions like that of the South Caro
lina coast, must be ruinous. The whole crops
of the year are lost, and substantially nil their
negroes, because tbe few they can save by run
ning tbem eff will hardly pay tho cost of keep
log them in Idleness during an Indefinite period,
Tbe entire slave property of South Carolina,
convertible into cash before this war began, at
more than two hundred millions of dollars, and
yielding n heavy per centage upon that valua
tlon, is in jeopardy, and Uh most its owners can
now hope is to save some little remnant of It.
Such an engulfing of private fortunes has not
been witnessed by this generation. The cupi
tal of the Charleston bauks, which consists of
tbe notes of planters, or of merchants whose
solvency depends upon tbe solvency of plant
ers, disappears like vapor before tbe sun.
South Carolina will continue to exist on the
map, but tbe South Carolina as we have known
it In politics and in Industrial economy, Is
now in its death throes. Its milllonairei of
yesterday, are paupers to day. Their punish
ment equals tbeir crimes, and has been as
speedy as It U signal.
So loDg as the great slaveholders of tbe
Southern coast bad nothing to do but-to Bend
to their Northern border to fight, the " poor
whlteB " of whom tbey were only too glad to
get rid, and to Bupply tbem with arms ttolen
from the national arsenals, they were able to
regard the progress of this war with compara
tive complacency. But now that it Is 'brought
borne to their own doors, it is a ery different
affair. It Is the vulnerable heel ot thl rebel
Achilles, wblcb is found at last. Tin negroes
upon the great plantations, wboie labors have
sustained Southern crodlt, are now reached,
and the whole fubrlo la tumbling luto ruin.
Great und memorable will bo tbe fall thereof.
Wintkii QuiRTLns. -The Cltronlcle of yester
day sayB, we know, not upon what authority
that " It is generally understood that General
UcUlellan bis Issued orders for tho estab
lishment of winter quarters am ng a large
portion cf the army," but that it must m,t bo
understood that It Iu nny way inu rferes ulth
tbe advance of the army, ur lis progieM to
Tub Cnnoxicui and Skcrtart Cameron.
We notice with great pleasure the change In
the tone ofrtbe Sunday CbronicU, on. the sub
ject of Mr. Cameron's endorsement of Colonel
Cochraue's mode of conducting the war. Sud
den conversions are not uncommon, and are
sometimes profitable. We hope now to have
the aid of our able contemporary In sustalulng
the Secretary of War la his manly and sensible
course, as evinced by bis late declarations.
