the issue in Tennessee, to be pat in a few

.Disunion; A Leson from History.
In the Edinburg Review for January, 1S09,
occurs the following passage:
"If such immense benefits have resulted
from' the prosperity of the United States how
tnanv tame greater will oe tnose wmcn must
necessarily flow from the prosperity of South
America? If tbe population of tbe United
States, amounting, perhaps, to 6,000.000
afford so very extraordinary a demand for
British commodities, what may not tbe po
pulation of South America, extending to no
less than 16,000,000, be expected to afford? "
Let figures, says the N. Y. World, show
how these expectations have been fulfilled;
and let a prudent philosophy lay to heart
the lesson thence derived:
Population or the United States in 1509 S.OOO.oro
- " " 169 30 ,000. 0 0
" ' Spanish Am: Repubs 1809.16.000 O' 0

-- " - 18 9.300 000 .000
t .. . u. gp.-xm. Republics, 1859.. 8a 000,000
From this statement it appears that, while
in a period of fifty years tbe population of
the United States increased fivefold, that of
the Spanish. American Republics shows only
an increase of one-fifth; and that the exports
of the latter, which were probably greater at
the commencement of tbe century than those
of the former, are now but one-fourth their
value. Such being the difference in the
growth of these countries, to what is it to
be ascribed? Let ns cite an impartial wit
ness. A writer in the JTortk Briliih Recieu
for November, speaking cf Uruguay, asserts:
"The pastoral resources are very great,
but war and misrule have smoasly re
tarded -their development." Of Cbili he
says: Mts prosperity would go on advancing
were all the obstacles to immigration re
moved, and the internal peace of tbe country
And of the Argentine confederation:
It is painful to consider how so magnifi
cent a country has been misgoverned. Eith
er embroiled with neighboring republics, or
disturbed by intestine tends, this vast terri
tory has scarcely begun to develop her re
sources." - -
Let those, then, who undervalue the les
sons to be learned from the bLstory of foreign
nations and of former times, at least take
warning' rom ' the fate of Mexico and tbe
South: American republics; and from a re
gard, for their material interests, if from no
higher motive, cling with an "immovable
attachment" to that Union "which was adop

ColchbU, (S;C.y December 5; 1860. "
Yesterday the debate in the House of Rep

ties arrayed agaidst each other in the matter
of organizing an army, and the manner of
appointing the "commanding ofScersused
scathing language, and debate ran high
throughout tbe session. So far as I am able
to judge, both tbe opposing parties .are led
on by bitter prejudices. The Joint Military
Committee, with two or, three exceptions,
have pertinaciously clung $o the idea that
standing army of paid volunteers, to be
raised at once, to have the power of choosing
their officers, np to captain, and to require
all above to be appointed by the Governor,
is the organization for the times. Mr. Can
aingham, of tbe House, who is put forward
6y the committee to take all the responsibili
ty of extreme sentiments, has openly avowed
bis hatred of Democracy in tbe camp. He
considered tbe common soldier as. Incapable
of an elective choice. He and others of bis
party wage a bitter war against Democracy,
and indicate an utter want of faith in tbe
ability of the people to make proper choice
The Dartv oanosed to this, the predomi
nate party, is ostensibly ld in the House by
Mr. Mc jovvan.of Abbeville, and Mr. Moore,
of Anderson. These gentlemen have a hard
fiffbt of iu Thev repn-sent the democratic
sentiments of the rural districts, are in opprv-
siiion to the Charleston clique, who are urged
on b7 Edward Rbe tt, Thomas Y. Simmons,
and B. II. Rh-tt. jr.. of the Charleston Mer
cury. The tendencies of these gentlemen are
all towards a Dictatorship, or monarchical
form tif government; at least it appears so
to mv mind, and I find myrelf not alone in
the opinion. They fight beart and soul for
an increase of Gubernatorial power, and one
of their number, as I have already stated,
openly avows his desire to make tbe Gover
nor a military chieftain, with sovereign
See tbe working of their views. They
will enroll a body of ten thousand men lor
an ostensible purpose. That purpose is al
leged to be the protection of their homes,
wives, altars, firesides, and other patnotic
intentions. They place the supreme milita
ry power into the band3 cf tbe Executive;
be appoints whom he pleases, and certainly
be will choose none but those of his way of
thinkin?. Tbe officers will impart senti
menu to the men, the country will be under
the rule of the army, and one mm at the
head and what next can easily be imagined.
The nower of the Rhett party bas already
been telt. Tbu3 far it has been in tbe ascen
dency and it has grown so powerful that
there are fears that Edmund libett, of the
Senate, will be elected the next Governor.
If this is the case, tbe thing will be all on
one side, and the worst is to be feared. Tbe
election of Governor, you know, is by the
Legislature. All the dominant power has to
do, therefore, is to pitch upon a man, and he
is elected. Certainly they win not c noose a
person who does not reflect their sentiments.

The opposing or inorougniy ueaiocrattc

secession sentiments, are nevertheless bitter
sticklers for popular rights and will stand

obtain few concessions. They have caused
tbe armv bill now under consideration to be
modified to such an extent that the Governor
shall appoint general and field officers by and

About the only Democratic paperat

"We denounce and defy Disuni6nist3, and
we will make war upon them till the people

their might and trach them, and teach all

and the debates exceedingly able and inter-
esting, but no-programme of Coagressional
action was agreed upon, or indeed seriously
urged. f 7i
Senators from States where Jthe Legisla
tures nave oeen called, or conventions order
ed to consider tbe present position of federal
affairs, held that tbe subject had been taken
out of their hands, and-were quite unwilling
to commit themselves to any course of action
in Congress. Tbey said no earthly power
could arrest the tide of dissolution, and that
the only question to be considered is one of
r construction. With tbem the proposition
ot benator Powell, to raise a select commit
tee, met with no favor. It is even doubtful
if any of them would consent to serve on
such committee.' y.
Tbe right of secession seemed to be almost
unanimously conceded in '. tbe caucus, and
the doctrine of coercion as generally repudi
ated. Indeed, it is not certain that any Sen
ator, except Crittenden, dissented from these
views, and even be did not think coercion
wise or practicable. It was in this regard
that tbe action of Sonth Carolina was consid
ered so potential. She was determined
go out, and when out the other fourteen
slaveholding States were committed to main
tain her. Whether her action was .wise or
unwise; they held it to' be right, and tbey
would not stand by and see war waged on
ber for the exercise of that right, though an
impolitic step for herself. Thus, it was held,
if South Carolina goes oat she mast be treat
ed as rightfully out of tbe Union, and permit
ted to remain out, else war between theelave
holding and tbe non-olaveholding States must
follow. But South Carolioa need not go out
alone. One of the most conservative and
intelligent members of the caucus stated to
day that the developments bad convinced
bim that disruption to tbe extent of five.
not seven States, before the 18th of January
was inevitable, and that nothing that can be
done in Congress will arrest the disasaster.
Tbe great effort now among the Southern
men is to set together and to induce all tbe
States to act together, in order that they may
be able to command such new guarantees
for their lights as are necessary in case ot re
construction, or to be able to take care of
themselves if it be determined that the free
and slave States must separate forever.
1 nis new and important and tormal pro
gramme has been presented for the consider
ation of toe Southern Senators, and was
talked over in their caucus. It emanates
Irom Lamar, the able representative from
Mississippi. The first object is to get tbe cot
ton states to postpone - nnal action so as to
give time to the other Southern States to co
operate with them. The plan is to have all
tbe Southern States in separate conventions
at the same time, and to adopt the present
government of the United" States at first.
without any .alterations; to- provide for tbe
execution of all laws and treaties, and for
tbe general and peaceable operation of all the
machinery of the present government, even
alter several btales bad solemnly withdrawn
from the Union, and invite all the other
States to join them, with the hope that New
England will stay out.'
lbe first feature ia the programme is to
have ail tbe Southern States in separate con

fect understanding that tbey should on the
same day adopt the same ordinaces verbatim

Second, that such ordinances,' whilst sever

Enforcement of the Laws.
The new theory of federal impotence, to
which Mr. Buchanan, with limping inconsis
tency, gives in his adherence in tbe messagf ,
reduces tbe government of the Union to a
contemptible nullity. Gen. Jackson did not
so regard it when be issued tbe celebrated
proclamation which did bim more honor than
any other act of his life. . A government
without power to enforce its authority, like a
man without a will, is a pitiful and despica
Under the old confederation we had pretty
much such a piece of imbecility, as Mr. Bu
chanan declares tbe Constitution to be. It
passed acts by which tbe States were morally
bouud; but it could only look on and let
them do as they liked about obeying then:.
It was precisely this defect that tbe present
constitution was designed to remedy; and if
it lack the power of enforcemeat, it fails of
the chief object for which it was created.
Washington, in tbe last years of the Confed
eration, wrote of it as follows:
'We have probably had too great an opin
ion of human nature ia forming our Confed
eration. "Experience has taught as that men
wlil not adopt and carry into execution
measures the best -calculated for their own
good, without the vUervenlion of a coercive power.'''
Mr. Curtis, in tbe first volume of his able
history of tbe Constitution, gi ves'tbe follow
ing summary , of .-"Washington's opinion, on
this pblnt.loanded on a letter in tbe ninth
volume of SparkB's "Writings of Washing
ton:" , . : - i
He was also satisfied that, whatever par
ticular system was tq toe adapted,- it mast bu
one that would create a pational sovereignty
and give it themeans-of coercion. What
tbe nature or mat coercion ought to be no
had not considered; but that obedience to
the ordinances of tbe general , government
could not be expected, unless it was created
with the power of enforcing tbem, all his ex
perience during the war and all his observa
tion since bad fully satisfied him."
We repeat, if Mr. Buchanan's theory is
true, the founders of the Constitution did a
very different thing from what they intended.
Instead of rearing a monument of wisdom,
they presented- an offering -of imbecility and
folly. Th6 World. .w,:

New York, Dec. 14. Tbe steamer Arago
passed Cape Race, but the sea was too rough
to board her.
Philadelphia, Dec 13. The grand Union
meeting assembled at noon to-day in Inde
pendence Square. It was opened with prayer
by Bishop rotter. Mayor Henry presided,'
assisted by a large number of vice-presidents
and secretaries, tbe names comprising large
numoers or weaitny ana influential citizens.
Resolutions were offered and adopted pro
claiming attachment and reverence for the
Constitution, earnest and endearing love for
tbe Union, and deeply deploring the fact that
some or tbe states have placed upon their
statute books acts evading and defeating the
provisions or tne constitution, and pronouc-
ing such acts in violation of a solemn com
pact, appealing for their repeal, pledging
that the statute books of Pennsylvania shall
be-carefully-searched and every statute, if
there are auy such invading the constitutional
rights of sister States, to be at once repealed,
recognizing the obligations ot the fugitive
slave law, recommending tbe passage of a
State law recompensing owners of rescued
slaves, submit to the d cisions of the Su
preme Court as to the rights of slave owners
tne lern tones, and recommending that
the 'disputed qnestions be 1 forthwith sub
mitted to the Supreme Court; approving the
BaggMtion of. a cuaveniltru f- delegates
from the States contemplating secession, to
suggest a remedy, with tbe firm conviction
that tbe propositions of such convention will
be received by other States ia a fraternal and
concilia ory spirit; appealing to their breth
ren in tbe States cookmplating secession to
forbear, reminding them of the innumerable
ties which bind us together as one neonla.
Tbe resolutions also condemn tbe denounc-
ng : of slavery as it exists in the United
States. . '.. , ....
Tbe stage was gaily decorated: also many
of tbe private and all of tbe public buildings
were dressed in nags with' appropriate mot
toes. One of tbe flags at the Hotel had tbe
motto, "Concession before .Secession." The
gathering was as large as ever assembled in
Independence Sqaare, numbering about 10.-
500 persons. Mayor Henry said, we meet to
intelligently consider the immediate danger
which threatens the perpetuity of the Uuion
without - any partizan or personal motive.
This danger has been brought npon as very
rapidly; th Republic is still in its infancy,
yet we must now meet on tbe ground where
the Declaration of Independence was pro
claimed with despair in our hearts. Only in
the sovereijaty of the people, and their
prompt efforts C4n this Union be perpetUAled.
We meet to declare onsbaken confidence in
the Union tind a determination to defend its
integrity. ; If any Disunion sentiments have
been proclaimed by any portion of tbe coun
try they mast be relinquished. -Wemu8t re
store public sentiment to the old standard,
and the misplaced appeals from our pulpits,
lecture-rooms, and presses against a section
of. our common country m ist be frowned
down.1 Tremendous cheering. J It has been
these "violent appeals that have mainly
brought about this sad state ot affairs. We
must preserve the Union at all hazards. "So
long as our social institutions do not contra
vene with the principles of tbe federal' com
pact none may justly luteriere. - - ; '
k. The resolutions were amended to a call for
a general Convention of all Stales instead ot
Seceding States. . 'u 'it''O'l
(. Joseph Clagereoll then - addressed tha
meetiuj.; He ipoke stroDgly ia favor ot th.
proposed Convocation or Congress of dele
gates from all the States to be held in tha
Hall of Independence. He cautioned the
people against violence unless we have a
civil devastating war. We have all to lose
by Disunion. It is important that the public,
sentiment be changed, that we no longer
consider each other from tbe North or from
the South.---He referred - to the speech of Mr.
Stephens, . of Georgia, whose name was re
ceived with bear'y cDeers; his kind sentiments
we most beanily reciprocate and echo back
to tbe peopla ot Georgia and the South. We
mast repeal . those hostile acts passed by
eleven States, interfering with Southerner
in- recovering their property. Applause.
We mnst show our good feeling by ucangund
not by words alone, and show tbe Sou4;bf
we will do.- nothing, to interfere' witi. ,:;t'
rights, bat everything to protect tbem rH'bat
we are : their brothers, . iriends, and fellow
citizens. It is folly to suppose that 'this
country can be divided it must be a union
in peace or a anion in war. " '
. Judge Woodward, of the Supreme Court,
said we mast consider calmly the position of
tne faouth, and ass wbetber tbey may not be
iu8tihed in their apprehensions. Toe pi it
form ot the party which has just sacctedid
ia electing its candidate to the frequency is
undoubtedly considered hostile to the iusli
tutions of tbe South.
Charles F. Lex.ciiy solicitor, said he had
no doubt that tbe action of Ibis meeting
would be highly endorsed by a majority of
those who cast their votes for tbe rresdent
elect.- He spoke as a Northern man on
Northern Boil. In doing so tbey would not
abandon a principle. Tbe vote of Pennsyl
vania was not influenced by tne slavery
question. Tbe main issues which the recent
contest decided in this State was tbe protec
tive policy; any danger to the South would
be repealed ; by hosts of young men lately
conspicuous in the political clubs of the sue
cessful party. Let Ibe fugitive slave hiw be
implicitly obeyed. . We may preler tbat it
should be slightly modified, but as it I-, it' is
tne law of the land and let us submit to tbe
dicieioos of the Supreme Court. He ouly
spoke tbe sentiments ot the Governor elect.
Faint cheers for Curtin.1 He read a tele
graphic despatch Irom tbe Governor of Mary
land to Mayor Henry denying the report
tbat he intended to convene tbe Legislature
or tnatbtate. Mayor lieory read a despatch
from a meeting of the Pliiladelpbians now
holding at tlietitlb Avenue Hotel ot iSew
lort approving the action or their native
city, v . ' -
Theodore Cnyler, President of the select
council, spoke earnestly and patriotically on
the question ot the day. This was no hour
ftr crimination and recrimination. Forget
ting all party ties or questions of expediency
we must unite :d keep step to the music ot
