THURSDAY MORNING, SEPT. 20, 1860.
A our contemporary gives o much promi
nence to the views of Gov. Letcher, and in
each manner as to make them controvert the
position of Judge Douglas, we suppose, then
i a happy accord of sentiment between the
Governor and the Union and American. We
are sorry to fee this indication. We Lad
hoped to see our contemporary arrayed on
the aide of those who reject the idea If such
resistance as Gov. Letcher contemplate, and
who do not entertain the doctrine of secession.
A weak and unfair device to tnd avor to
convict us of disunion sentiment. We uavk
never held that the electiox of the
Black Kepcblicax candidate fob the Pre
hidexct wolld be 8cffictext cause for
DLScxiox or secession. Union and American.
Oh, no. neighbor! We did not des-ire tv
"convict" you of "disunion sentiments." Wt
depired to give you a chance to repudiate the
idea of the election of Lincoln being "suffi
cient cause for disunion or secession ,' ai.d
are gratified that you availed yoursc!.' ol it.
Hooper, of thi "Mail," take note the
"Union and American" - is with us and
against you in the attempt to "fire the South
ern heart." and precipitate the South into a
revolution in the event of Lincoln's elec
tion ! So when yon are to be hung for trea
son, you need not expect your editorial
brethren up here to do more than t-Lcil a few
tears over your fate.
Hon. II, B. Holmes for fircekiiiritlse
The Hon. B. R. Holmes, formerly a mem
ber of our State Legislature, and a leading
and influential politician of Yazoo county,
has openly, and without evasion or qualifica
tion, severed his political relations with the
enemies of the Democratic party, and has
come out boldly in favor ot Breckinridge and
Lane. His letter announcing this purpose,
teems with sound thoughts ar.d words of burn
ing patriotism. It will be found in our col
umns to-day, and will richly repay perusal.
We find the above ropablL-bed in the Uniun
and American of yesterday. We take it lor
granted that our contemporary, after inform
ing as that it "has never held tbat the clec
lion of the Black Republican candidate for
the Presidency would be sufficient cause fui
disunion or secession," dovs not mean to cu-
dorse lbs Mississippiin' opinion of the lcttei
of Jlr. Holmes. What ol.ject, then, can it
have for republishing the Mississippi m's re
marks? We presume the object was to ac
quaint its readers with the fact tbat a "lead
ing and influenti&rLopponent of the democ
racy in Misw.Mppi had joined the Breckinridge-Yancey
faction. If so, why not give
the readers of the Unim and Americm the
reasons of Mr. Holmes for his change of po
sition the "sound thoughts and woids o!
burning patriotism" which he brings to beat
to sustain the caase which he has tspt ascd ?
Mr. Holmes i3 a disunioah-L In the Con
stitutional Union party he was out of place
He sought that party, or fraction of a p uty.
whose objects and princ:p!es are most ncarh
allied to hid own. He did not do so Lecaust
be thought there was a chance for the suc
cess of the Breckinridge-Yancey men in the
Presidential election; for he admits that tiiey
will be defeated. He believes that Lixc lx
is bound to be elected, and in that event he
is for preventing his inauguration ui the
Union, if possible, out of the Union if neces
sary. Rather than submit to a republican
administration he would "grapple with the
pillars tbat support this tottering fabric
called the Union, and drag it down." It is
bat natural, therefore, that he abandons bis
old allies and musters under the flag which
flies above the disnnioait-U. No doubt he
feels'at home there. But our contemporary
mast feel a little odd In such company.
For the benefit of such of the Union aud
American's readers as also read the Patriot,
we republish the conclusion of the letter of
Mr. Houckb. Here it is:
I believe, however, that the Republicans
will elect the President. What then ? Once
in authority, the Republicans have vowed
they would acknowledge no Constitution that
shields the institution of African slavery, and
having openly sworn thus, they should never
be permitted to stain, by their touch, the pub
lic institutions of the country, the keys of
the Federal Treasury, to our torts and arse
nals, to violate the Federal Court or pollute
the Federal chair, by placing in it the repre
sentative of a party who openly swears there
is a law higher than the Constitution of their
country. This should be prevented in the
Uuion, if we can, out of it if we must. The
inauguration of a Black Republican as Presi
dent of these States, would be an overt act
tor the overthrow and utter destruction ol
the Southern States, to prevent which, self
protection tbat first law of nature bids us
resist; resist if to the cost of the Union itseJf;
though it should iuvolve the Republic in civil
war. Ttt, sirs, rather thin submit to a disgrace
so black and damning, tee tliould grapple the Jul
ian thai support tlii tottering fabric called tie
Union, and drag it down about their heads, bury
ing thou hell-imps beneath its ruins. .
Respectlully yonn, -
To Messrs. Armistcad, Epperson and Phil
fpST' If any further proof than we have
heretofore given, were necessary to demon
strate the truth of the charge that the dis
union leaders of the South broke up the
democratic party with a view to secure the
election of Lincoln, and to use that event as
a pretext to break up the Union, it may be
found in the fact that they still persist in
running their candidate, when the only effect
of it is to aid the election of Lincoln, by di
viding the conservative, Uuion-loving oppo
sition to him. i They, now concede that Lix-
coL will probably succeed, with Breckin
ridge on the track ; jet no one will doubt
that if be were off the track, Lincoln's de
feat would be certain. H that calamity shall
befal the country, therefore, the B keck in
ridge party alone can be held responsible for
it and for all its consequences.

wh- would held oflioe under Liucdn if elect

to observe, Mr.Clingman is for disunion in
that event. For if you shut up the Post
Offices and stop the malls, close the Federa
Coart, and discontinue the performance of
all the necessary duties under the Federal
Government, disunion follows : Mr. Rodman,
Bieckiniidge Elector in theNewbero District,
id out lor disunion incase of Liocoln!s elec
tion. The Bieckinridge paper at Tarboro
tsikes the same position. All through the
South, we bear ot Breckinridge men declar
ing ior disunion in case of Lincoln's election,
and at the same time declaring tbat Lincoln
will certainly be elected. We should be sor
ry to see this if xe had any idea that Lincoln
wiil be elected. We do not believe he will
b?. The managers of the Breckinridge
movement are doing their best to secure that
result ; but the people will disappoiut them
ln the aicantime it would b much more to
tU-; credit of thee lire-eating geutry if they
would advocate dissolution no. After the
th'ctioc, decided cou.-titutiouaily, we ate iu
honor bound to abide iU results, and wait lor

election of no mau constitutes that cause.

Sucu won id appear, ironi oinciai uocumenis,
to be the fact. We have before us the pub-
li-h' d statement ot tho Third Auditor of the
Treasury, (transmitted to Congress iu Febru
ary la-i.) of tbe accounts in the Treasury,

mained unsettled, or on which balances ap
oear to have been due more than three years
prior to July 1st, 1859. On page 23 is to be

charging Gov. Stevens with a '-balance, Sept.

What is Tuoight of Mr. Breckinridge's
Speech. The Cincinnati Commercial, a Re
publican paper, and rather disposed to give
a favorable view ol things anti-Douglas and
anti Bell speaks as follows or Mr. Breckin
ridge's late effort at Ashland. Il says : ,
Mr. Breckinridge met many inconsequental
points successfully, and evaded the thing of
consequence. The speech is one of consider
able force, in that it presents the Southern
sid.j of the Squatter Sovereignty feud in the
Democratic party very clearly and calmly
and makes out a good case. But it is weak
in tbe ouly point about which the great mass
of the people of the country felt interested
and nine out of ten of the readers of the
speech willl express disgust and contemptu
ous derision at bis failure to answer the Nor
folk questions. Several gentlemen stepped
into our effue, as the speech was being re
ceived, and iuquired in respect to it : -How
has he answered those questions?" He did
not answer the questions simply because he
dared not. Th re is a considerable portion
or bis supporters who avow themselves in
lavor of a dissolution of the Union rather
than see a mmlter of the Republican party
at the head of the Federal Government. He
did not presume to offend this class. After
this, bow -flat, stale, and unprofitable" is all
his wordy dec amation about devotion to the

Bite of a Rattlesnake Cured in Two
Hocus. The Petersburg Express publishes
the following from a reliable correspondent :
A carpenter, while engaged a few days ago
in pulling down an old house, aud in remov
ing some of the rotten timiters near the ground,
was bitten bv a rattlesnake. In a lew mo
ments his finger was swollen to four times its
natural size, and a red streak commenced
running up his hand and wrist. A deadly
languor came upon him, and his vision grew
dim, clearly indicating that the subtle poison
that wascour-ing through bis veias was rap
idly approaching the citadel of life. But a
remedy was tried, merely by way of experi
ment, which, to the surprise of all present,
acted like a charm, tbe component parts of
w hich were onion, tobacco and salt, of equal
parts, made into a poultice and applied to
tbe wound, and at the same time a cord was
bound lightly about the wrist. In two hours
at terwardi be bad so tar recovered as to be
able to resume his work. I knew an old ne
gro who cured a boy that had In en bitten by
a wad-dog, by the same application.

The Questions Propounded to ,TW r

Hrecltinrldze at l.exiaeton
As a matter of interest to our readers, we
give below the questions which a Breckin
ridge Elector sent up to Mr. Douglas while
be was making his speech - at 'Norfolk,- with
tbe answers of Judge Doughs: See Patriot
of Friday. "
These questions were, sprung upon Judge
Douglas with! a view to bis embarrassment
and prostration, bat he answered them with
out a moment's notice, and answered them
boldly and outright, bidding defiance to con
sequences. He then requested that the
same questions should he put to Mr. Breck
inridge. The Yancey Elector,, who had ap
pointed himself Grand Iuquisitor over Judge
Douglas pledged himself that they should
be put to Mr. Breckinridge and auswered by
him. They were put to him by the whole
counlry, by newspapers, by orators, and by
voters. He had days in which to prepare
his answer.- Mr. Breckinridge had appoint
e(l a tim' and a place for the vindication
ol himself, and promised lo group logi ther
and refute certaiu grave charges preferred
agaiust him. The people assembled lo hear
him. He spoke, but what a monstrous and
nominating discrepency between the note of
preparation aud the performance. He deni
ed that he had ever expressed a disunion sen
timent. Who said that he hail? He denied
that he signed a petition for tbe pardon of
old John Drown. Pshaw I He denied that
he ever joined the Know Nothings. Who cares
if he did or did not? The questions are
dead and gone. Nobody cares a pin for
them one way or the other, if these consti
tuted the "torrent of defamation," much el

with great propriety, have keen saved to Mg.
Breckinr.dge and his friends.
But what answer did M.. "nckiurlige
make lo the great questions wI..oti were pro
pounded to Mr. Douglas, and which are- now
rocking this Union from centre to. centre.
HE NEVER ALLUDED TO THEM. He
denied what was never charged upon him,
but he dare uot deny tior aduttl that his party
are ltent upon the dissolution of the Union
iu a certain contingency ; and that marv of
his supporters support him for thu n.xAved
reason that his runuiag will m; - that con
tingency a certainty. . 11c was .ar.iiJ to ans
wer the question so boldly answered bv Mr.
Douglas. He evaded them. The timj for
evasion and political diplomacy has passed.
lfie people are interested in these great
questions, aud the people will have an answer
or tin y will repudiate the Presidential can
didate who evades tne true issue. Mark that.
if William Lloyd Garrison's "Libera
tor" speaks iu terms of warm commendation
of the nomination of Mr. Andrew for Gov
ernor of Massachusetts. It calls it "a cheer-
ng sign of the times," not only on account
of Mr. Andrew's moral worth, "but particu
larly because he represents the highest phase
ot political anti-slavery feeling as yet devel
oped; thus showing that Massachusetts 'takes.
no step backwards but is, on the contrary.
steadily advancing iu the cause of huavaaity
This tendency of radical republicaaism in
Massachusetts toward the vortex. c4' abolition
ism ought to excite the alarm of the mod
erate members of the parly,, lest, from a de
fensive attitude of resistance to the extension
of slavery, it should assume an aggressive
one, and aim at unconstitutional objects.
From Florida- A genlleniau writing from
Silver Spring, says: "Hopkins will be our
next Governor. We will send him across the
Suwannee with one thousand majority from
the East. Five hundred majority here se
cures his election." Roll on the ball, friends
in Florida; victory is just ahead of us il
will soon be within our grasp. Let every
man do bis duty, and the day is ours. Work,

and keep the Bell ringing continually. Ah
The Health ok Charleston- ThcCbir
of Monday says: "On enquiry at the City
Register's office, wc learn that no additional
case of Yellow Fever had been reported from
last week up lo the time of our visit Sunday
forenoon. The Dispensary physicians report
their different wards in a state of continued
gocd health, aud we have also the concurrent
opinion of several physicians of largo prac
tice, that the Break-Bone Fever is steadily
on the decrease."
A Breckinridge Elector Declined. In

Translated from the French, original exjiressly for tL
editiooby O. W. WitaiT and F. B. Goodrkm (-' pji-fc
Tinto''). : ' " ' ' - .
Has been little known because he has been little Iran.- -lated.
Except by reputation he is almost utterly un
known, in America. "Over the whole catuinect of
Europe, however, (to quote the words of Charus
Dickess in "All the Year Round,") " wherever tuf
literature of France has penetrated, his readers are
numbered by tens of thousands."
PICKENS CONTLVUES :
" Unquestionably, Balzic ranks as oue of the f a
great geniuses who appear, by ones and twos, in o n
tury after century of authorship, and who leave their
mark inelLceab'y cn the literature of their age."
