It i almost too lute to nay anything farther of
the great political levolu'.ioa w hich haa trans
pired in this State, and yet, it Is fraught with
results so important, I must give it a patsing
remark. It has gone abroad that the Dsrnoc rat
io Convention at Syracuse tvtrd down the reso
lution on the Wilmot Proviso and slavery.
This I am informed, though true in e fleet, was
nut done in form: the convention did not vote
at all on the tneritu of the resolution, but dodg
ed the issue by laying it on the table at the out
set, it being understood by thn knowing ones
that it would be d.togerous to the unity of the
party te risk a direct vote upon it: and that it
would be an easy matter on the heel of the con
vention, and in the press of business, to giro it
the go-by, without incurring the responsibility
of open opposition to the doctrines it contained.
Thus it proved, despite the earnest efforts of
the frienus of the measure, and of a most effec
tive and eloquent aneech from the author of the
revolution, David Di diiv Firm, Esq., during
which, and throughout the debate upon it, the
Old Hunker aud their allies mad the most
phrenxied attempts to drown discussioa, and
committed excesses which would hav shamed
a decent pandemonium; and the convention ad
journed, orrather scattered, in th most beautiful
disorder, at ism t' clack a Sunday miming.
Such scene as her transpired, and "such
phaututic tricks " are seldom seen except by
th'i frequenters of Old Tammany, in our city.
They dispersed, eni with the delusive hope that
they had given a quietas to this agitating qnea
tion, but all th salt in i-yracuse could not pro
serve a decayed carcase, or prevent the ntlluvia
there arising, from reaching the olfactories of
those who hav breathed th untainted air of
The Coaventioii of Young Democraia, at
Herkimer, which fallowed quick upon the heel
of this tit Syracune, where Wilmot himself,
Joh Vax UraxM. l. lU-DLr.r Field, and Cax
sscli.inu were leading spirits, and the action
tlmre taken en them vital questions, have thrown
tho Democratic paity in this Stale, and 1 may
say, throughout the North r du tomLat;
ef which ftct, the lecent elections in this State

Th c'o.; trine of this resolutoa were aiHritisd
by th Whig Convention at .Syracuse, and also
by th Whig of Massachusetts, at Springfield.
1 v know where tho people are, it is only neces
sary to observe that the Whig ticket here was
near 40,000 in the sscendsnt at ths last election,
and th issus in Massachusetts was almost as
decided, in proport on to th n luibsr of votes
The only fesr is. that as th great struggle
for political ascendancy approaches, in th
presiiientisl contest., tbe hopeful signs of re
turning consciousness, or resscisnr if you
please, ia the North, will di sap rear, and the old
party lilies be as distinctly drawn as before.
Such it is confidently predicted by the new dis
comforted Democrats, will be the case, and I am
aorry to confess my own inclination t that be
lief. The Speech of Mr. C ay, as you w ill bar
seen, has produced a profound sensation at the
North and Esst, and his given birth to nsw
and brighter hopes among the friends of peace:
the lovers of their country, aud the enemies ef )
war, rapine and blood. A 'cord .al shake of th i
baud which I ence enjoyed with Mr. Clay, in a 1
large crowd did not make me a Whig, ner has.
the career of the great Orator and Statesman f J
the Went had the eBect to make me one of his
admirer, yet, I am ready to confess a thrill of
pleasure, ia common with the thousands who
listen to his voice as to an oracle, at the unex
pected aDd emphatic condemnation it now ut
ters of this " ununtural " and unchristian war
apon our neighbor: aud the voice that is now
levaled t speak out so clearly, in this hour of
the Halloa's greatest peril, should certainly
command devout atteoiion, and be hedd a
the vsic of a warning spirit; may it prev
each to thi nation. The North is gsltiug Ursd
of this war, not that they have a particularly
Christie regard for the livee of the thousands
of innocett men, women and children who are
to be its victims, at least such scrapie are
confined to a very fw but the sport is too
costly, and the protpect of haring to foot the
bills, will yet make l.hetm cry out lustily for
peace. This would long ng bsv been the
c ae, hid a direct tax ben levied to meet tke
expeiiSSf of th war as they have accrued.
Disgusted and heart-sick as I ant at sush exhibi

Having recently perused with mOcb interest,
an Atidreee delivered before the Colonization
Society of Bowling Green, on the 4tb of Joly,
132, b)-Hon. Joseph U. Underwood now
United State Senator, I cannot resist my in
clination to make lomn extracts from it
Speak.iug of th evils of slsverv the distin
guished ijenUetnan oteerves: l"he first, and
oae of '.he greatest evils of negro slavery, is,
its iufluence uoon the minds and habits of our
children. Tbey learn, at a very early period, to
expect the performance of every work by a
slave. They will not, when parental affection
yields t their wislies, do anything for them
selves, which has the appearand of labor.
Tbey must be waited on, aud have all things
done at command, by ulaves. Thus, in infancy,
habits are contracted which last through life
The chdd grows up to manhood, aceustomed to
rder a !ave instead of wailing on himself. He
looks upon labor w ilh contempt; considering it
lit for slaves only, and calculated to degrade
freemen. Should a man, reared with these
opiuioL aud habits, be reduced to th necessity
of laboring in afurlife, he generally exhibits
an inert, hirt-broken disposition, and most
commonly sink ts inslgnihcanc in the hovels
of diss pinion, lucre ts nons oi tuai energy
about him which distinguishes t!ios who have
been btourht up to labor. Prostrate these by
adversity, and they straggle and rise again.
Bring the son of an amuent slaveholder, who
haa been reared in idleness and luxury, to pov
erty, and he rarely, if ever, regains a competent
livelihood for himself and family. The condi
tion of females reduced to pov-1y, after having
been reared ia affluence, and accustomed to be
waited en by slsves, ia infinitely worse than
that of males. Unaccustomed to discharge the
indiipensabld home-hold duties, nd altogether
untitled te endure the laborer thetn, tney sin in
to despondency. Thelrilliant hopes indulged by
such a woman, in her morning ef lifo.give place
to th nniraish of disappoiutnient Jlerworld of
flowern U convertdd into thorax. The bitter-
nese of her existence is often afgravated by th
reflection, that be;: miseries have heen brought
on her by th imprudence of an idle husband,
reared by an indulgent father t' no business,
and taught to depend on the labor of slave for
everything. Earti becomes pnrgatory to the
mind and person f a female thus reared and
thus reduced; her only consolation is rengion
her ontvhoDe is death." pp.9, ID-

evils of slavery. Nor let it be supposed that

The Georgia Legislature hav two reports,
(majority and minority,) befer it on th (ab

abstract right of each citizen, of every State,
to reside with hi property, of every description,
within such territory as may become th com

aud tak strong ground against it, asserting
that they apprehend no danger from th acqui

Th L sin c racy of the free States, without
