We have positive information from Wash

convert their colleagues to their new faith,

of unscrupulous politici na who expect agt -,

surface from the depths of oblivion to which
a peaceful state precipitates them. Listen
to those, aud impugn not their motives, nor
turn your denunciations upon them, who
seek - to establish- a right understanding
among you of the views nd opinions of the
leading men of the Noith. and of the people
of the Northern States. X Ml yoo, then, you
are deceived., Gov. Harris tells you in bis
Message, that all the Northern States bave
enacted penalties againBt the enforcement ef
the fugitive slave law. This is untrue. It
is hard to throw charity around such mis
chievous ignorance in the present excited
state of the country.. Gov. Lane, of Indiana,'
in bis late message, says there never was a
syllable on the statute books of that State to
interfere with the operations of that law. I
know- from along residence in that State,
that her people are as conservative, and as
true to the South, as Tennessee Or any other
State. Years before the enactment by Con-'
gress of the fugitive slave law, Indiaua pro
vided for the restoration of slaves that might
escape to her borders, by passing a law offer
ing $100 reward for the apprehension of any
such fugitive. I have given several letters to
gentlemen of this State addressed to friend3
in Indiana, to enable them to recover their
escaped negroe3. They were always success
ful, and, on their return, expressed the high
est satisfaction at the-' prompt 'assistance af
forded them in regaining their property. I
have no patience with these sweeping defa
matious that make no exception of a State
that has ever been true and loyal t0every
Constitutional obligation. What a keen
thrust Indiaua might give to Gov. Harris'
call-session that so boldly demands the re
peal of unconstitutional enactments by Nor
thern States affecting our rights, and at the
same time passes a retro-active stop law, a
thousand times declared unconstitutional by
our own and by all the Courts of the coun
try, and which will inflict far greater damage
to Northern creditors, than ,all the personal
liberty bills of that entire section ever did
to the whole South. I kuow the people of
Indiana to be as virtuous, as law-abiding, as
gallant a people as those of Tennessee, or
any State in the Union. They were so, when
I lived among them. They are still so, or
my blessed christian mother would not now
abide there and my brothers and sisters
would flee her borders back to their native
South. I stand here ready at nil times to
vindicate the fair name and honor of that
State, where wag the birth-place of all the
childreu I have. Yet that State gave 20,000
majority to Mr. Lincoln. Why? I will tell
von. and an explanation of that vote con
tains-, I think in a great degree, a solution of
tbe recent action of the North.- Un a visum
July last to my friends - in that State, we
talk d freely of the election. iNO hostility
to the South was in any insiance avowed.
My old Whig friends, expressed tbe highest
admiration for Mr. Bell, and lor his efforts to
prevent the repeal of tbe Missouri Compro
mise line. they , said, however, tney couin
not vote for him, because (knowing your
men better than you do theirs.) though he
had opposed that repeal, neither he, nor his
party, nor the press ot the boutn, advocated
the restoration of that line. That no man
would be sustained by a single Southern
State, who would advocate it that its re
peal, and the declaration by men of intem
perate z al in the South, that the free insti
tutions of all tbe Northern fctates should be
overthrown, and slavery should be planted
even around the foot of Bunker Hill, bad
forced the isue npon them that they musl
meet that Mr. Lincoln was an old-line Whig
maintaining the views of Mr. Clay, who had
expressed as strong opposition to introducing
Blavery into the territories as Mr Lincoln
ever had. and yet was willing to compromise
tne question that Mr. Lincoln was com
mended to their support by bis exalted per-
soual character and hi;h mental powers, and
that by bis election they meant bit to pro
tect themselves, and check the spirit of bla
very propagandi.-m in the South, that was
endeavoring to override every other interest
ot the country that they meant to cleau out
the foul Augtan stable at 'Washington, and
put their fiat upon slavery agitation for ev
er that after tbe election, it th? Ssoutn were
to manifest any disposition to a fair settle
ment of the vexed Question, they would be
met in a spirit of reciprocal conciliation
Tbcy asserted that they meant no more
wrong to the South in voting to interdict sla
very in all the territories, than the South did
to them in declaring their intention to force
it into all the tciri lories that they had the
same right that we baa, ana tnougn ineir
views were in accordance with the previous
action of the government from Washington
down, they were for peace, accord and con
cession, lor the sake - ot - the bnion.-
Betng a rational man, 1 mqst contess that
returned home with a better apprehension of
what our members of Congress mean, when
they come back lrom their conflict, at H an
ington and declare that "argument is ex
hausted.'- It does seem to me that thepres
ent attitude of the North is that of dignified
contistency, and certainly of praiseworthy
forbearance towards the South. Why, do you
justify the violence of South Caroliua, Geor
ci Alabama and .Mississippi in seizing gov
eminent property, and the act of fell treason
and war of the former in firing Into a govern
ment vessel? If you do, why do you not at
once imitate their example? Uut you do not
jusipy their course, lou say they have act
ed with precipitation, and that you are tor
preserving the Union. Well, if yoii cannot
sauction what they have done, do not the
Northern States tbow great magnanijnity,
that they do not resent these wunton out
rages to our government and to the honor of
our national flag? We fire np iu great indig
nation, and our sapient Legislature passes
death-breathing resolutions, because, after an
aggressive 'act of war by a. Southern State,
aud after extensive arming preparations in
the South, some of the Northern Slates see
proper to tender aid to the general govern
ment. Have;they not excelled us iu a spirit
of patience under great provocation, such as
they never would have submitted to from the
most powerful loreign nation on the globe ?
Do we approach them on the subject of com
promise in a spirit ot conciliation : No; with
arms in our hands, we demaud their humilia
tion, and by all tbe sacred memories of Bunker
Uill, Lexington, I rentoa, and Concord, neith
er the South nor any other power on earth
cau achieve tueir Humiliation, lhey are
our equals, and it is ray pride to say we are
their?. V e are one people, all Americans,
and no such words as humiliation, subjuga
tion, submission, or cowardice, cau be found
in the yocaouisry or our lamny traits. I
want no humiliation. I -w ant a fair and
honorable adjustment, without leaving any
rankling sense of. thaine aud degradation.
Can we get it? I say we can. ' Already have
the Governors ot many ot the principal .North
ern Slates recommended the repeal of all of
fensive laws on their statute books, and ad
dressed words cf friendship to the South.
Some of them have recommended the adop
tion of Mr. Crittenden's resolutions. Mr.
Bigler, of Pennsylvania, votes lor these reso
lutions, and his colleague, Mr. Cameron, de
clares that whenever tbe South manifests a
sincere desire for accommodation he will
meet her upon terms ot equal conciliation.
Messrs. Trumbull and Harlan aud Sherman
have met the occasion eo far as to propose
the admission, at once, of the whole of New
Mexico as a slave Slate all the Southern
territory we own between tbe Slates and Cal
ifornia.- Mr. Armstrong has receutly made a
great and conciliatory speech lrom the Re
publican side. - Mr. Trumbull, who spoke by
authority for Mr. Lincoln, said at Springfield,
Illinois, that "Mr. Lincoln, though the can
didate of the Republican parly, as Chief
Magistrate will neither belong to that nor
any other party. When inaugurated he will
be President of the whole country, and will
be as ready to defend and protect the State in
which be has not received a solitary vote,
against any encroachment npon its constitu
tional rights, as the one in which he has re
ceived the largest majority. . The Republican
party are fortunate that they have it now ia
their power to prove inai tney never wieuu-
ed. aud do not inieuu, any cuctoaenment
upon tbe rights of any State or auy section."
Mr. Lincoln himself, about the same time, in
responding to a call from an immense crowd,
said, "in ur rejoicing let ,us not express nor
cherish any harsh leetings towards any citi
zen who. bv bis vote, has differed withns,
Let us, al all times, remember that all Ame
rican citizens are brothers of a common
country.' and should dwell; together in the
bonds of fraternal feeling." At a recent n-
lerview." 80 states a correspondent of.theM,
Louis Democrat, when asked if he thought the
Missouri Compromise line ought t be re
stored. Mr. Lincoln replied that,1 "although
tbe recent presidential eiefitiou was a verdict
of the people in favor ot lreedom in fcil toe
territories, yet, personally he would be will
ing lor the sake of tbe Uniou to divide tha
territory we now own, if, in the judgment of
; tbe nation, it would save the Untou and re
store harmony." Mr. Seward, the premier of j
disappear in tbe presence of the great
tion or union, so iar as i am evaci-rut
shall so " This speech is characterized
throughout, in the estimation vf candid
miuds, with a tone of . (in its own language)
the " utmost - morjpraiion. - - ioro"aranep,
nd conciliation.'' Horace Greeley, com
menting on it, says, " Governor tsewara
indicates a purpose to pu.-n concession i"
the utmost verge," and, as if catching a kind
lier spirit from that speech, though hereto
fore utterly uncompromising In bis send;
rnents says: '-were any evidence gtvrn oy
the secessionists that they could be placated
by moderate and reasonable concessions, w-e
hould be willing to see mem mr-i in a spin
at least equally conciliatory." Now take all
this in connection with the many large and
enthusiastic Union meetings held iu the
Northern States, and the fact , that we have
1,500.000 of voting mends in the North, ana
laro-u accessions to that number daily, and
the iunate love ofjthe Uniou that animates all
good men of tbe country,-and what need
bave we for precipitate ac iou; why indulge
rancorous bitterness and hurt anatnemas
and inrectives at men who necessarily have
to feel their way aud approach us, the incen
sed pary, with caution? Such a spirit on our
part inevitably repels, and postpones the hour
of reconciliation. I am sure from the moder
ated tone of the Northern press, and lrom
every received principle of common sense,
that the Republican party desire peace wnen
ever it can be had without mak ng them as
sume the position of a vanquished p rty.
We make our deman is upon them as m tne
Union were a boon, that in infinite charity, we
were willing to allow to tbem. and that they
were the only party to derive any good from
U. I am not surprised, nor am l angereu,
that the preposterous exactrwris of such men
as Huuter and I'verson, meet with supreme
disdain, and that the insolent, dictatorial
bearing, aud the insincere, sptcious ana
trickish voiingof Davis, Toombs, Wigfal! aud
Hemphill, should have tbro.vn the Republi
can side npon the reserve. These men do not
represent the Lnton spirit ot the aoutn.
When we are told in the Albany Evening
Journal, Gov. Seward? orgn. . and partly
edited by his son, that the Republican p trty
are now willing to throw aside the aad
issues of the past, aud to take up the Umng
ksius of the piesent, let; us not by excitauis
endeavor to keep alive those dead issues.
Cease this eternal harping upon Northern ab
stractions, aud sophisms that have died with
the occasieu of their utterance. The past is
unalterable the present is in our hands, to
mould it as we please. The difficultR' in
the way of adjustment lie not so much in our
hearts as in our pride. M object is, if pos
sibly, to apply some soothing emollieut to the
latter, aud leave the former lteer in their
nobler pulsations. Surely Messrs. Lincoln
and Seward bave uttered some hard sayings
to Southern ears; but those sayinys were ad
dressed to Northern people, all of their own
way ot thinking made in healed canvasses
.ind for electioneering purposes. Much
stranger did it sound to us, when a candidate
from our own section a pro-slavery man
the fire eater's candidate, Mr. Breckinridge,
declared to these same Notthern people at
Tippecanoe, that he belonged to no party
that favored the extension of slav. ry. Ah!
?ir. Fillmore declared that he was opposed to
the extension of slavery; in favor of abolish-
ng slavery in th District of- Columbia, and
of interdicting the slave tr -.ffic between the
States, yet he made us a model President, and
we all love hun. Why are we so implacable
towards Mr. Lincoln, who stands pledged not
to abolish slavery in the District ol Columb'a
not to interdict the slave trauic, not to ltner-
flere with slavery iu the States and who de
clares, "I never have said, nor do 1 now say
that I will not voe tor tbe admission ot an
o'her p1 ive State." Why are we so implaca
ble? Doubtless to a great extent because he
was a sectional candidate, and we feel that
we have no hold upon him iu obligation lor
ourvctes. Yet bad we not better act upon
the m ixini sufficient unto the day is the eil
thereof." Are we not brave men, abje at one
time as well as another to vindicate our
rights? Have we suffered any wrong yet?
No. Had we uot wait until we have bett. r bo
fore taking a staud ol inflexible hostility? Is
it not un American maxim to "give every
man a chance?" Shall we by an nnreasoua
ble.ungenerous and unmauly opposition,
drive the new administration into unavoida
ble enmity to us, and give it the justification
of no other alternative? Surely, surely not.
But doubtless too the Southern miud has
been shocked and off-nded by filse represen
tations of Mr. Lincola's view in regard to ne
gro equality. -
I have seen extracts going the rounds from
his speeches, where I understand him as as
serting the priuciple that the law is no re
specter of p -rsons, and when, to catch aboli
tion votes, like Mr. Breckinridge, lw runs
out the theory of our Government, "that all
government should be with th" consent of the
governed," aud "no taxation without repre
sentation." Tennessee might afford not to
be very sensitive at such applications, as I
cau remember twenty-five years ago her free
negroes were allowed the right of suffrage.
But to give his true views on this subject,
the following txtract from Mr. Lincoln, is a
withering retutation cf Gov. ITirii.' charge,
that "it has in the person c 'he President
pler.t. asserted theeauailtv of t.. s black with
the white race " These are the puxual views
of the "President elect:"
-I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of
bringing about in any way the social and po
litical equality of the white and black races.
I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of ma
king voters and jurors of negroes, nor of
qualifying them to hold office.nor to intermar
ry with white people; and I will say iu addi
tion to this that there i9 a physical difference
between the white and black races which I
believe will forever forbid the two races liv
ing together on terms of social nnd political
equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so
live, while they do remain together there
must be the position of superior aud inferior,
and I, as much as any other man, am in fa
vor of having the superior position assigned
to the white race."
Is there a slave owner in the boutu who
goes further than this ?

AS. Air. Lincoln IS now me a itsiueak acui

with what little time I had at my disposal,
to "pour oil upon the troubled waters." and
do what I could to bring about a better uu-
rstanding aud renewed Iraternat reelings
between the divided sections of my country.
I feel that all depends upon that all depends
upon our content to be reconciled. I would
be willing to stake my life upon the disposi
tion ot tbe Worth to meein iu; oomu m

never entertained any of this sectional feel

to me a one ot my eyes, a iooa. up ui

which attaches to the Cres- of my Re

wearied souls will una ineir uum rai. a

consecrated in every true American u-art by
tho Siincion . of War-bington, Jefferson aud
Madison, and challenges tho approval of all
men in its ordination of successful liberty,
and the happiest government on the earth.
I fight no wrongs outside of its ample pro
visions. Trusting lauhiuiiy to tue puuuipiv
of self-government, I feel confident that the
American people will do right. To err is
human : but when the predominating spu n is
patriotism, I never fear an ultimate return to
justice and duty. Then let us have patienue
equal to the great interests invoivea.ajiu c
time for tho torm of passion to blow over.
There is no occasion, for a Convention. It
can but aQ' rd hope and opportunity to the

Letter from tbe Seatnern. Klgnt
' - Nashville,- Jan. 31, 1861.
Gextlkmex We are in receipt of your
letter of thi date. In which after stating the
Impolicy of any division of sentiment in
Tennessee, you propose to us that you: will
immediately decline'and leave us without op
position, if we will pWge ourselves if eleet
d. "to insist in our State Convention that
Tennessee shall " by the 4tbr of March next

that may by that time bave dissolved their
connection with the Federal Union,''.on cer
1. Should the Commissioner from Virgi
nia, Kentucky and Tennessee deem it unne
cessary to submit any plan of adjustment to
Congress and advise tbe withdrawal of their
respective States from the Union. A majori
ty of the Commissioners from any State to
be regarded as speaking the voice tof tbe
Commissioners from that State. ..-
2. Should Congress refuse to propose such
amendments to the Constitution as may have
been agreed upon by the Commissioners in
the Washington Conference from the States
above-named. It being farther understood
that as a condition precedent to tbe uniting
of Tennessee with those States that may have
withdrawn from the Union, said. States shall
adopt the Constitution of the United States
as the basis of Tht Government tjiey propose
We have given this letter all due consid
eration, and whilst admitting the importance
of harmony in our action, we cannot accept
that harmouy at the expense of our convic
tion of right and duty. We frankly admit
that we have the utmost confidence in tbe
Commissioners from Virginia, Kentucky and
Tonne-see about to assemble at Washington.
We look with the most intense in
terest to the result of their deliberations, and
if they should deem further attempts towards
adjustment of our difficulties visionary and
useless, or it thy agreed upon amendments
to our Couj-tiiution to be proposed by
Congress to the States, aud Congress should
decline the proposition, we should feel deep
ly grieved at such a result. Our; confidence
in the future would be greatly impaired, and
wc should consult earnestly with the border
slave Slates so as to make some other united
effort for the salvation of the Union or a com
mon destiny with the whole ISo'uh. We cannot,
however, agree to pledge ourselves in either
event to pursue the course you have . indicat
ed. In the eveut of our election wc shall be
but the representatives of our people, and if
we can ascertain their judgment iu the con
tingencies above referred to, musl obey their
wishes or resign, and we cannot anticipate
their action. Furthermore, we would not
now be willing to make-supposiliuos cases of
this character, and then give pledges, which
could not be recalled, that we would act in
a particular manner. It may be that tbe
contingencies referred to iu your letter
might arise, and yet other circumstances
might occur immediately after or contempo
raneously which would affect our own action
and that of our sister slave States remaniug
in the Uuion. At the time of our nomination,
and since, our general views of the course and
policy to be pursued by the convention were
given to the public, and we cannot now con
sent lo modify tbem. '-
