A GREAT SPEECH.
Senator Johnson of Tennessee has been making
. what Republicans and othir Unionists call "A
great speech." The Cincinnati Commercial says,
,;. "The common sense of the people of the South
.hat spoken, with the eloquence of iudixputable
facta and incontrovertible logic, through the lips
,of Andy Johnson."
, We have only room to givo the following extract
and which we trust will be universally received as
the eloquence of indisputable facta and iacontro-
DISUNION IS ABOLITION.
There are jnuny ideas afloat about this threaten
ed dissolution, and it is time to spcuk out. The
question arises iu reference to the protection and
jjrosoryi-.ion of the institution of slavery, whether
dissolution is a remedy or will givo to it protection
.1 avow bore; to-day, that if I were an Abolitionist,
land wanted to accomplish the overthrow and aboli
tion of the institution of slavery in the Southern
. States, the fust step that I would take would be to
break tithe bands of this Union, and dissolve this
Government. 1 believe the continuance of sluvcry
t depends upon the preservation of this Union, and a
campiiauct with all the guarantees oj the Constitu
tion. . I believe an interference with it will break
up the Union; and I believe a dissolution of the
Union will-, in the nd, though it may be some
time come, overthrow the institutiin of slavery
jionco we uiu bo many in cue jxortli woo desire
the dissolution of the union of ibeee States at
las most certain and direct and effectual moans
of overthrowing the institution of slavery.
. Lincoln has been visited by a fire-eater and bis
-blue cockade, and at the close of the interview the
President fileot assured him:
"You will find that the only difference between
you and cpe is, that I think slavery wrong, and
you think it right; that I am opposed to its exten
sion) while ycu advooate it; and that as to these-
Acurilg of ', the institution and the protection of slave
.property in the States w here it bag a lawful exis
tenoe, you will find it as great under my adminis
tration as it ever was under that of Mr. Buchanan."
A TIMELY SOUTHERN CAUTION.
It has been indignantly denied by some) that
the slaves it the South are deluded by what they
kave beard from the whites into Ibe belief that
Lincoln's eleotioo is a triumph of abolition. The
-following will show bow well grounded is the fear.
It is from the Panola (Miss.) Star, of Deo. 13:

owners taking some pains to correot a very false
Impression now prevailing among the negroes

Relieved by our slaves that they were to be free if
Lioooln was elected, or at least, they think some
how or other they are to be benefitted by bis elec

the consideration of the hotter judgment of our
fellow-citiions, whether it would not be best to
tell tbeni that the election of Lincoln had nothing
in the world to do with them or Ibeir freedom,
but has reference to the question of making new
lave States; that nothing has been done to change
tneir condition, by Mr. Lincoln or anybody else,
and that all the talk they bear about tbe slavery
question cannot in any way, free tbem.

BRAZIL AND NEGRO EQUALITY.
A correspondent, whose letter we published a
few days since, pointed exultingly to the foot that
England and France maintained harmonious rela
tions with the slaveholdiug Government of Brazil,
as positive proof that those nations would be equal
ly well diiposed to a Southern Confederacy. We
trust tho contingency may nover arise in which
tbe question ihay be practically ttsetod whether
foreign countries would be friendly or unlriendly
to a seceding nation carved off from the existing
Republic; but there are strong reasons why Eng
land, with hor peculiar anti-slavery notions,
should regard with much greater favor tbe Brazil
ian Government than any one likely to be formed
in tho southern part of the United States.
Of the total population of Brazil, which now
numbers near 8,000,000, not more than one-fourth
are whites, and tho remainder is composed of a
mixture of mulattocs, mestizoes, and blacks, slave
aud free. No distinction of color whatever exists in
that country, and in the language of a recently
putJi'snea encyclopedia, its laws "render manu
mission easy, and, once emancipated, the negro
'finds every calling and office as fully open to him as
to the whites. In the army or navu, in commerce,
agriculture, or manujacturcs, in social or political
position, color is no barrier to the highest success. It
results in this, tbat tbe danger of insurrection does
not exist. The humblest slave looks forward with
hope not only to future freedom, but to wealth aud
powel-." We learn, too, that eome of the most ex
tensive slaveholders, and men of tbe first rank in
Brasil, are negroes and mulatoes. When Gov.
Wise, of Virginia, was the American minister
there, during Tyler's Administration) he found
colored men of African descent in the Cabinet,
with whom he bad official business to transaot.
Indeed, with tbe exceptions that tbe Emperor and
royal family are of pure white blood, ond tbat
there is a considerable white population in tho
oountry, there is little or no practical difference,
far as the elevation and power of the colored
race is ooncerned, between Brazil and any pure
Great Britain, therefore, and France, might

PAINTING A WHITE GIRL TO MAKE

One day last week a gentiemah of this city
hailed an up country boat, Ibe Cora Aodorson, as
she was pausing, Greenville, Miss., whither be
had gone on business, to return bonis. Shortly lif
ter being under way, our Natchez friend observed
a pensive-looking little girl, aged about 9 of 10
years, whose black hair and yellowish brown skirl
would indicate tbat she was a ntiilattteis. TbeTe
was something sboiit hei that interested hind, and
he inquired of the captain concerning her. He
was informed that she was a slave belonging lb a
