Ieet!ns f tUe lOtU Ditrlet Club. .
A meeting; of this Club took fUce Friday
night, on which occasion Rcs-ell Houston.
Esq.. was the epf;ak r. lie fpoko for about
an hoar, the chi-f ol ject of his remarks be
ing to enforce the proposition that there i in
t!je Government and the laws no cause of
JiMontent that our government is? really
the best on the plohe. as perfect as man can
make it. the p?ople enjoying under i ia the
highest aeCTt-e. the blessings of peace, pros
lerity, and civil and religious liberty. What
ever causes of complaint there might, be.
arose from tbo loose ideas of liberty which
prevailed among the people, end the non-execution
of the Lues. Ia the elucidation of
this proposition he referred to the case of the
United States ra. Booth, in Wisconsin, w hich,
after going through the courts, and resulting
in tbe imprisonment of the defendant for n.
Kisting in the escape of a fugitive s-l.ive who
hud been arreted and w as in charge of theU.
!. officers; the prisoner being gubseijuently
released by a mob, and backed by a mob in
the place to which he fled, defied successfully
tbe power of the marshal who attempted to
re-arrest him. Such cases as ihu?, which
cause discontent and bad feeliug in Iul-South,
and encoura.e rcrUtauce to ihe laws iu the
North, were amply provided lor, and all that
was necessary to put a stop to them w as. a
rigid enforcement of tb laws. The- execu
tive was arnied with the whole ruiiitiry
power of the government, and ought to xer
cise it, when tbe other means failed, to put
d .vn mob law, and to command that respeet
and obedicuce to thi authoiity u! the laws
of the country that was due them. The lost?
of a few lives the lo:-s eveu of many lives
was nothing compared with the loss of gov
ernment and civil liberty which niu-t follow
the continufd success of unrestrained past-ion
and lawlessness. Iu this connection Mr.
Hocstox dwelt, for a lew moments, upon the
importance of that clause of the Constitu
tional Union Party's declaration of princi
ples which pledges its candidates to an en
forcement of the laws.
The demand for the enactment of laws by
Congress for the protection of slave property
in tbe territories. Mr. Hocstox said was un
necessary. That description of property,
like other property, was already protected
by the Constitution, and tbe demand for pro
tective laws was only a means of irritation
and agitation. To sustain his position that
slave property was already protected in the
territories, be cited the resolution of the dem
ocratic State Convention of 1859. (held two
years after the rendition of the Dred Scott
decision), declaring that "slavery and tLe
rights of slaveholders are prUtclel by the
Constitution of tbe United States, i-.ud by an
' appeal to the actiou of the judicial tribunals
of the Union.7 This declaration of th Con
vention was true in ISoP, and is true now.
Why, then, demand protective laws of Con
cress now, but as a means to stir up excite
ment, to irritate the people North aud South,
and to prolong the strife an J ill feeling w hich
has prevailed for years pa.-t ?
Mr. IIotaTOX was hopeful cf the sccce.ss of
the Constitional Union cause, to the support
of which he invoked all who desired the
preservation of our institutions. The con
servatives of the North, he believed, were
rallying around oar standards, satisfied from
the condition of affairs in the South, indica
ted by the recent elections, that the chances
of success were more favorable to BKixand
Everett than either of the other tickets, and
tbat upon them there ought to be a geucral
union to defeat Lincoln. In corroboration
of this position, he took up the Southern
States, one by one, and showed how utterly
hopeless were tbe chances of either Docoi.as
Interspersed tbrough his argument, were
occasional references to the nominees of the
Constitutional Uuion Party, illustrative of
their eminent ability, their unimpeachable
integrity, and acknowledged fitness for the
high positions ihe people are asKed to bestow
After Mr. IIolstox closed, in response to
calls Col. Gums, of Wayne, made a few ap
The Game of Uras.
Under this caption the Union and American
furnishes its readers with some good reading
from the Patriot of lfcoG. But it is furnished
with a view to convict us of playiog tbe
"game or brag." We must assure our neigh

any other game. What we said in 1S56
about the prospects of Fillmore was the
truth at the time it was said ; bat unfortu

September were changed to gloom by tie

It is no idle compliment. Our young friend
Goli.aday has, we are assured by competent
judges, conducted the canvass in Williamson
with marked ability, tact and discretion:
Ed. I. Gotj.adat. The canvas of the cin
didates for District Elector has closed in this
county, and we wish to bear testimony to the
faithful manner in which onr standard-bearer
has dope bis duty. Coming among us almost
a total stranger, "aTyoulhtofamennknown'
it is not to bedenied that there were some
misgiving as to bis utility to cope, with bis
competitor. Gen. Bate was well know n as a
politician, acd bad a high reputation as an
able debater, and an eloquent epeaker; nnd he
is alio the senior, by several years, of M r. G
which of cooire-gave him more experience.
But when tha champions came to m-asnre
swords when tbey rnet fce to, tace .in the
war of intellect it was soon found Ihat Mr.
Golladay was a full ma'cb for bis more expe
rienced competitor. Without indulging in
any of the prejudices of a parliz-in, we tbink
thai all will assent to tbe above. We would
not underrate Gen. Bate. He is a man of
learning, of ability and ebxjuence, but he has
been completely met at every point, and it is
saying little enough to say be has not gained
a single advantage.
But were we to le-echo the eentimints.'of
Mr. Golladay "s party friends, we should say
that bis was a complete triumph.- Day after
day he met bis opponent, and as often con
quered. His arguments were convincing,
bis eloquence enchanting, and his intercourse
among bis friends was such as to bind every
heart to him. No man ever made so fair a
reputation in. so short a time. He came
among ns uuknowu he goes with the char
acter of one of the first debaters and orators
Mr. Golladay has a blight future before
him, and wherever he goes he will have the
ardent friendship of the Union boys of "Old
Williamson,"' aud their most earnest prayers
for his prosperity.
The speakers at the Breckinridge
neeiing; oo Ttesd-jy, Messrs. Harris, Ewlug
and Nicholson, referred to the anion Iteiwcen
tbe Bell and Doaglsa men in New York, la
terms of disapprobation.. Now, lor what. was
the union formed? For the exprcrs purpose
of beating Lincoln. it men who claiu. to
be tbe peculiar friends of the South denounce
it. Wby do they denounce it? Because they
see in it the precursor of the inglorious de
feat of the Breckinridge movement. &rar
There is not a man iu the United States,
who knows anything, who does not know tbat
Bkec eixridoe cannot carry the State of New

Ewino and NrcuoLsoy, is iol in favor of con
solidating all the forces opposed toLrxcoLX,
aud thus defeat him in New York, and make
sure his defeat in tbe L'nion? Do Messrs.
Ewrxo, Harris and Nicholson really desire
the election of Lincoln-, that they look with
disapprobation upon tbe surest means of de
feating him? If they do, let theni anuounce
it in direct terms, and take their places along
with Yani ev, Rhltt & Co., on tbe "open s:a
of d't.-uuton." W want no evasion upou
this sul'j'tt neither do the Union-lovitig
people of Tennessee.
'Tlicy would Vote I'or liougla,"
All of the speakers at the Breckinridge
meetiug on Tuesday. Gor. Harris, Andrew
Ewitig aud Senator Nichnlsou. said that tbty
would vote f. r Douglos if they thought that
he was tbe strongest man iu this State against
B-ll. It they are sincere ia this, why did
tbey aL-t iu bringing out Breckinridge, and
thereby weakening Douglas? Wby did they
assist iu dividing the party iu this State?
Tbey say that they would vote for Douglas
ia a certaiu contingency. Tbey would go for
bim if tbey thought he w as the strongest man
against Bell. Now would the fact of Doug
las lMug the strongest man m ike bim any
sounder on the slavery question than he re
ally it? We think not. Jf he is sound on ihe
slavery qtiestiuu, he is sound on tbe slavery
question whether he gets one vote or a mil
lion. If he ia ui.-x.tiud on that question, as a
matter of course he is unsound whether he
gets a miliiou votes or oue vote. He is still
Stephen A. Douglas, tbe champion of popu
lar sovereignty, tio matter how large or how
small may be nis vote.
We wi?h our readers to remember that the
"head and front" of tbe Breckinridge party
in this State have admitted th.it Douglas is
sound enough to suppoi t, il he i the sir jngest
man against Bell.
Capt. Travis can't beat that shot, made, by
the Somerville Democrat. It as thoroughly
lays out tbe arguments of these Breckinridg
ers, as was the bjdy of Hector alter being
drasged around the walls of Trov.
Seward, or Cieorgia, on lite SeeIer
and Vance V .
Hon. James L. Seward, of Georgia, a warm
supporter of Judge Douglas, baring been
stigmatiz-.-d by Yancey as an infamous cal
umniator, is out in a spirited response. He
shows that if Lincolu is elected the aeceders
will bu re-ponsible, and further remarks that
the present representatives iu Congress, most
of whom are scceders, mast make the elec
tion if a't all, provided no election is made
by the people, and should the Southern States
secede and prevent an election, the Union
con id not stand the shock. He says :
Does cot the past conduct of the seceders
foreshadow what their future policy will be?
For these reasons and upon these premises I
have argued that there was, in my opinion, a
purpose to destroy this Government. I have
argued tbat intelligent men understood the
effect of their movement, concerted and
agreed upon, and that rhey certainly intend
to accomplish the object which would legiti
mately result from their conduct. The
promiuent position which Mr. Yancey took
iu the secession from the Democratic Conven
tion, tb"! disunion sentiments attributed to
him, and wbieh are apparent from his public
declarations, have subjected his acts to criti
cism, aud I can not admit tbat his public ca
reer is exempt from scrutiny, or his opinions
from proper review and ju&t commentary. I
shall exercise the full freedom of speech iu
regard to public men and measures in this
cauvass, and shall draw my own inferences
from their acts as to tbe effects w hic-h tbey
will produce upou the country, avoiding per
sonal offence to any one.
I am a native of the South, born on the
soil of Georgia, largely interested in slave
property, and thall judge for myself what is
due to Southern houor and Southern rights,
aud express my opinions freely and fully. I
have carefully endeavored to avoid personal
ities, yet I shall not be deterred lroin review

spirator against the Government, whose

Foreign Intervention iu TOexico.
The Timet says it has authority for stating
that the Mexican question is on the point of
being settled by the intcrveution of the Great
Powers. We quote:
"France, England, Spain and Prcssia have
signed a convention tor the pacification of
Mexico, to which they invite the adhesion of
the United States, but which they purpose to
carry into effect without tbat adhesion, should
the United States refuse it.
"The bases of toleration for all religious
opinions, and of a modified establishment for
tbe Roman Catholic Church, are understood
to have been already accepted by the Consti
tutionalists under Juarez on the one part,
and by the Clerical party under Miramou on
the other. An armistice of twelve months
duration is to bo declared between the re
spective leaders, and during this period those
portions of Mexico occupied by each are. to
be held without dispute by the actual occu
pants, joint action being taken to secure the
carrying on of the necessary business of the
public administration and maintenance of -order.
At a time to be hereafter fixed, the
people of Mexico are to be called upon to
elect between the principles represented by
the two factions, and the respective leaders
pledge themselves to resign all their authori
ty and arms into tbe hands of the Govern
ment thus designated under the sanction of
the intervening Powers. t
"The grounds of this action, already sub
mitted to tbe administration at Washington
are, that tbe party of Juarez, whica might
have been established as the Supreme Execu
tive more thau a year ago, under tbe terms
of tbe treaty proposed by fcenor Ocampo
through Mr. McLane to the Washington Gov
ernment, has demons'rated its incapacity of
conquering power, and that tbe United States
bave definitely abdicated their pretensions to
aid it in this conquest; tbat tbe ' party of
Miramon in like manner has proved itself
depeudent upon an i.-olated intervention by
Spain, which is in every point of view unde
sirable; aud that tbe interests of tbe subjects
ol the intervening Powers and of civilization
generally, can no longer be left at the mercy
of the partisan warfare which bas raged for
six years in Mexico, aud has reduced the
country to the very brink of chaos.
"Our owu Government is understood to
have anoouueed that while a pacific interven
tion of the sort contemplated, if it fails to
command the assistance, cannot provoke tbe
hostility of tbe United States, no armed in
terference to euforce its provisions must be
made without due previous notice, communi

ILVS received simoultaneously with its issue m Xew
York, M.UUON HARLAND'S XEW Coot,
By the Author or Hidden Path, Aloue and Moos Side.
Tlie scene' of the story of Xewu-tU is laid id the
South. The time, tbe beginning of the present centu
ry. The customs and events of those days are traced
with fidelity and spirit, yet so skillfully interwoven,
with the narrative, that the reader is not wearied by
statistics or dry historical details. The homes of fifty
years ago seemed as familiar to him as those he visited
but yesterday, and their inmates differ little from the
meuaud women with whom he associates daily. The
pictures of humble life are graphic and refreshing. In
no other work from the authors pen can there be found
greater variety of incident, more artistic deleneatioo
of character, more earnestness of thought and vigor of
discriptiou, and certainly no other contains a plot so
ttrBHng in couceytio and so ably managed.
Tho reader cannot but remark how irresisubly yet
naturally he is borne along by the tide of events.
There is no need after he is once in the current to ex
plain the ominous tittle that frowns at the top of the
page. Before the XetnetU is nn vailed Ihe reader feels
her subtle influence, understanding by Intuition that
there are hidden springs and secret wires under the
feet and hi the homes of the unsuspecting objects of
her vengence and the pertinent motto of the authorers
fully proves that retribution though somtimes slow w
Also a fresh supply of the
