But this should le held out as a fact, and cot

North should appeal to the scne of right, to
the forbearance, to the interests political, so
cial and material of the nou-f-laveholding
States, at the same time asserting what
they believe to be the rights of slaveholdiog
States, and asking for them respectful con
sideration. They may tell their Northern
brethren of the wrongs we have Buffered un

there to forbear, while here we are blowing

ourselves, be displaying our wounds and
opening our sores aud lashing ourselves into
uncompromising fury and madness ? With
what hope, with what expectation, with what
design is all this doue ? Is it done to drive
our people into an expression f this temper

Hare we m Disunlontat among us?
The sectional agitation of the men who now
have Breckinridge for their candidate, has
at leugtb brought the Union to the brink of
dissolution. Judas Iscariot, after be had be
trayed his Lord, when be saw that he was
condemned to be crucified, h&d the conscience
to go and hang himself. But Judas was a
conscientious man compared with unscrupu
lous political tricksters, corrupted by long
service of an unprincipled political organiza
tion which lives literally upon public plun
der. The late elections in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana clearly indicate thit a cri
sis in the history of our republic is immi
nent that this wicked sectional war has gone
almost to that point where men throw aside
the argument and grasp the sword. And
now the agitators who have led us to the
verge of ruin, cap the climax of their audaci
tv of iniauitr bv raising their voices to a
louder strain, calling the people of the South
to rush right into revolution by supporting
the candidates of the disunicnista. An at
tempt is made to rally the South to the sham
of protection, which their most distinguished
leader in Tennessee pronounces a mere ab
straction. "The Union, the Constitution,
and the Enforcement of the Laws" falls short
of giving them satisfaction. But they are
pleased with the jingling sound of The
Constitution and the Equality of the States.
These are the symbols of everlasting Union.'"
As though the constitution did not itself
guarantee the equality of the States. "The
constitution is "a vile phrase," in their es
timation, but "the constitution and the equal
itv of the Statea" -is good." This clap trap
reflection on the constitution of our country
will answer their purpose in firing the Southern
heart, and preventing a cordial union upon
those noble candidates who represent "the
constitution, the Union, and the enforcement
of the laws." Thus, by forcing to its dire re
sult the sectional issue, they may precipitate
the election of LixCuln, and precipitate the
South into a revolution. What ether object
can Breckinridge papers have in Btill forcin
the sectional i.-ue, or attempting to force it,
upon the South? People of the South! the
i?ue ia onion or disunion. It is time to take
sides. If you ara for disunion, vote tor
Bkecxiridge and Lake. But if you are for
peace and ucion, vote for Bell and Everett,

a word was said of it! But our contempo

remarks touching the recent municipal elec

When the telegraph brought us the news
of the defeat of the K. N. candidate for May
or at the municipal election on Wednesday
last, we could scarcely credit it. It seemed
too good to be true, when it was confirmed,

about it. But there is no longer room for

on the Presidential question. In abort, it is

Barrow has just returned from a tour in
New York, after having made there more
than twenty speeches, which will tell in No
vember. In view of these facts, the voice of
public opinion here called loudly upon the
leaders of the Bkeckinridge party to send
North, man for man with the Union party.
But the leaders talked about it, and consid
ered it, and talked about it; and the people
said Mr. Nicholson ought to go, and must
go, and doubtless would go. Aud so Iuj did

no idea that he has auy notion of going
Hon. Andrew Ewino, whose heart is still
in the right place, did go, and the thanks of
a patriotic people go with him. but no other
distinguished Breckinridge leader of this
State has gone or is likely to go. They care
less to beat Lincoln for the Presidency than
to save Tenuessee for their own purposes.
Gen. Zollicoffer has also gone North with
Gov. Brown and Mr. Ewino. So it seems we
are sending two to their one even now.
The Philadelphia Evening Journal, a
Bell and Everett paper, iuviles the attention
of Southern readers to the fact that the po
litical -entimeat which has just predominat
ed in Pennsylvania is not the "Republican
ism"' which prevails in New England and in
the Northwest. Economical questions grow
ing out ef the "larifl" rather than the -la-
Tery" question controlled the result. The
same paper expresses the opinion that Mr.
Bell, from his known views upon the former
of these questions, could carry the bfate
against Mr. Lincoln if the friends of both
Mr. Breckiandge and Mr. Douglas would
withdraw their electoral tickets.
The Union and American of yesterday
tells us that it canuot unite with us in the
support "of those who are pledged to sustain
the Union and the Constitution upon which
it is founded, and the enforcement of the laws
under which it is governed." It insists upon
Breckinridge or nobody for the South and
Southern rights. We regret it. One appeal
less to the people. Will the Union cvJ Amer
ican enable us in getting the matter properly
before them, by republishing the extracts
which we make in our columns this morning
from a leading Breckinridge organ in Ala
bama, the Montgomery JfuU? And if it will
not republish them, will it read them and tell
us and the rest of its readers how far it in
dorses them, and precisely in what respect it
disagrees with them, if at all?
A Prettt Experiment. Professor Rogers
has solved the problem of seeing through a
mill stoue. In a paper read before the Sci
entific Association at Newport, he says :
"Take a sheet of foolscap paper; roll it op
so that the opening at one end 6ball be large
enough to take in the full size of the eye, and
at the other end let tne opening ne nut nan
so large. Take it in the right baud, holding
it between the thumb and the forefinger;
place the large end to the right eye and look
through it wiih both eyes, open to the light.
Ylu trill tee a hole through your hand.
"If you take it in your lefi hand, and hold
it to your left eye, it will be the same. You
will in both cases be astonished to see that
you have a hole in your baud. The illusion
is most complete.
From this and other experiments, he con
cludes that an impression made o;i the retina
of either eye canuot of itnolf enable us to de

that the visual perception belongs to the

-The Frankfort Yeoman, a Breckinridge
organ, says "Breckinridge has the drop game

Well, it is tunny to hear the organ boasting
that its master is practicing the low, swind

DISUNION AND ITS GLORIES.
Ei faila, Ala , Oct. 8, I860.
1st. The vroi-vect of U has now reduced the
nrice of cotton $10 per bale below its value,
and as over 00.003 bales will be sold before
the 6ih of November, the loss will be S5.000.0UO
to th South from this cause alone. This is
below the fiirure : every cotton buyer knoirs it.
2d. All the Southern Bauht have closed down,
shut up shop, and now refuse to put out thi-ir
bills iopay for cotton on bills of Exchange,
navab'e at the North after the 6lh of November,
because no Nortliem Bank will take Southern
Bank drafts or bills payable after tltat date, lor
tbe reason that disunion and war would caDcel
aud annul the debts of belligerents. Hence
a money crisis is on us. Ootton is going
down here, whilst it is rising in iuroj.e, aad
ruin. ruin, ruin is ahead ! Reason why ? The
Presidential election comes off the Olh of
Novemlier. aud disunion is threatened.
3d. If disunion stould come, bacon, now 16
cents, would theu be 50 lo 75 cents per pound;
corn theu $3 to 55 per bushel, and no money
to nav for it. There is not bacou and corn
enough in tbe Gulf States to feed our people
until the 1st of March. We have to buy lrom
Illinois, Ohio aud ludiaua, and other North
ern Slates, or starve.
4lh. Disunion is civil war. We are splendidly
prepared tor it animis opibvsque parali. Let
us see. We have no uiu.-kets, no rilles, no
cannon, no wheel-carriages for caunon, no
powder, no balls, no bacon and flour to feed
an army. No implements or munitions of tear!
Is not THI3 ti:ce? Let every honest mau an
swer the question.
5th. When disunion awl civil war cjtnrs, what
will the thousands do who have no bacon, no
corn, and no money to buy them with? Wilt
tbey starve, or lorm brigand clubs and rob,
steal and murder, before starving? Who
could blame tht-m. Would the Norlhicei send
us bacou aud corn to stop starvation here,
whilst at irar wiih ? No. The ide is ab
Ctb. All who are iu favor of civil war,
starvation, ruin, desolation, robbery, arson,
irurder, and the otter destruction of the
South, should go for DISUNION if Liucolu
is elected. TRUTH.
History shows us that citadels and forfe?
amply able to support and maintain them
selves, have yielded to an enemy without
firing a jrun!" The writer of the article in
the Confederation virtually recommends that
policy to the South to surrender, without
tiring a gun. to the legions of white and black
Wide-A wakes who compose the army ot Lin
coln! Shall we surrender without even ask
ing terms? Shall we be taken, as the British
took Walker, aud be turned over to destruc
tion by abolition white and black emissaries,
as Walker was turned over to death by the
No 6trucrgle for Stale sovereignty! No
contest for the rights of the States? Not an
arm raised to protect hundretN of millious ot
slave property. JNo; no: on.r "com at $
per bushel, aud bacon at 75 cents!'" only
these "and nothing more!'' are the cou
Theu let us adopt the logic of this writer.
To defend slavery requires that we should go
through au ordeal in which we shall have to
pay '"75 cenU for bacon aud $5 for corn'
slavery ia uot worth such sacrifices the
rights of the South are not worth such sacri
fices it is not worth such sacrifices to pre
vent each community iu the South irom be
ing an Obeilin, with a ' big nigger"' at its
head. Auy thing desolation the extinc
tion of the while race the predouiinace of
the black! hell itself anything; but high corn
and expensive bacon.
The patriotism of the writers of the Con
federation is lofty and smacks of tde "blood
of the Revolution !" Did not Patrick Hen
ry say something of a certain tory, in whose
ears rang the cry of "Beef! beel! beef!"
This Confederation patriot is better by a
whole syllable his cry is 'Bacon ! bacou I
bacon I bacon and submission "
It is trui that there is a hard money pres
sure upon the people 1 It is true that the
political uncertainties do affect discounts and
to some extent tbe price ot cotton; but it is
not true that Northern banks refuse to dis
count cotton bills. The Northern banks nev
er did that business. Tbey would be glad to
do it, to-day.
Gentle reader, fear not your bacon! The
South baa nearly four millions of Utfes ot
that which, ia the money market, is. Better
than even 'corn' or ' b icon." Slc4 off the
Northwestern corn or bacou and the same
process shut off from them (or their custo
mers,) our cotton; and the money will come
aye, the "cora"" and 'bacon," too for
our cotton, and the purch;iers be glad to
get it on any terms. If the price of. the Eta
pie is depressed now, it is t-imply. becajsc
tbe bank have managed to get control of
the crop; ir the banks are shocked or over
whelmed by political f.-ars, let them with
draw entirely and let tbe British aud French
come ia with their gold and silver as they do
i a Texas and bay our cotton.
'Corn! Bacon!"' From how deep down
in that patriot's person, proceeds tbejubiitne
cry of -Corn bacon!'
Bat. says this writer, in case or war, "we
have no musket, no rifies, no canaaa !'' We
thought this howl would come, when w
heard of the Joe-Taylor denunciation ot the
last Legislature, for appropriating a few
thousands to iha purchase of arms.
We expected, even then, that the advocates
of submission to Lincoln would turn around
aud laugh at the feebleness of our military
means! Surrender! screams the patriot of
the Confederation. Surrender! No arms!
no monitions! corn at $5 and bacon at 75
cents! ... . .
In God's name, where are the brave wo
men of this fair land, who first defied tbe
power of the British Lion! Let them come
tortb and take the places of recreant and de
graded minhood of the land! Will they
whine about 'corn and bacon,' when North
ern indolence is sending its mulatto hordes
to fire our dwelling aud desolate the land!
Forbid it, Heaven ! Our women are true
they will not counsel this base, cowardly,
perfidious, self-annihilating submission to Liu
coln and the Wide Awakes! - -
"Bacon I Bacon I Bacon I" The South is
told to submit to tbe leprous rule of aboli
tion, because, otherwise, bacon will be high!
Geu. Marion lived in swamps and led on po
tatoes, for months, during the revolution.
We require pleuty of bacon at low figures!

r&. Eichkisox' Bnrots in our columns niiiy be
found n advertisement ef Sherry WSno Bitters, pre
pared by Pr S O Richardson, of -outh Heading, Mass.
They are, as said to be, undoubtedly composed ef a va
riety of valuable and purely vegetable matter, and
from onr own experience, a well as others, we can
speak highly of their renovating and invigorating ef
fects upon the sy3teai. tTo have a good opinion of the
Bitters, as tbey are not a quack nostrum, but discover
ed, prepared, and vended by a regular physician, a
graduate of the college of our own -tatc, and who has
said but tittle in the way of puffing them himself, but
leave it to those who try them to judge themselves.
For the diseases that many are liable to in the Spring
and Summer, such as Debility, Dyspepsia, Billious and
Nervous complaints, we do not hesitate to say tliat
these Bitters will be found a safe, agreeable end ctfectu
al restorative. A3 good lialth is one of the groati-et of
earthly blessings, we would carry advise those labor
ing under such disease, to make a trial of Dr Richard-
eon's Bitters; they can do no harm, and may do much
good, aowc arc confident in many cases they have.
Vegetables and vegetable medicines are iinu.aost.ona

Tlte Oreatness ami Decline
From the French of Uonore de Balzac.
O. IV. WIGHT Jc'W. It. CJOODKICII,
In one Elegant Volume, 12irro, Cloth.
RrD & CaRLETox have got out tbe first of their ae
ries of the novels of Honors pi Balzac translated by
Meers. O. W. Wight and F. B. Goopbich, both gentle
men favorably known iu connection w ith original and
translated works The present is entitled "Tbe Great
ness and Decline of C-sar Birrotteau," and the transla
tors introduce it w ilh the following Preface : " That
the Novels of Uonore de Balzac," says the London
Critic, are immeasurably the greatest works of tho
kind that France indeed, we would add, anv other
country has ever seen, does not admit of the slight
est dispute. That they go deeper into the human
heart, represent more truly the human passions, and
reflect with greater accuracy the phases of human life,
than any other novelist has ever been able to do, is
admitted by all who know anything about the matter.
Some may object that there arc features in his compo
sitions which render them undesirable subjects of
study to the young and pure. To this we reply that
we are not of that opinion. SuUac touches rice but to
scourge her ; he drags her forth into the light of day,
sets her up in the pillery, and calls her by the right
name. We believe that fco far from having a demoral
izing effect, the careful and thoughtful perusal of Bal-
sac's writings can have o other result than to increase
the !rvc of virtue and the dread of vice"
