THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
The following letter from tle Washing
ton correspondent of the Baltimore Sun,
has some importance as an indication of
the view which it is the oiject or the Ad
ministration to impress on the country.
They send ageuts and iuducenets to Cal.
ifarnia to urge on the formaiitn of a Sate
government, and now they seek to shelter
themselves under their own act, as if it
were a necessity forced upon the country.
A motley horde of adventurers from all
portions of ihe earth, inundate thiq region
with the hope of speedily gathering wealth
and then returning whence they c.ame.
These men can spare time enough from
their gold digging to frame a government,
and the act is to be presented to Congress
as the legitimate exercise of their right by
the people of a Territory! Tie -passen -

. Wo are only at the threshold of the
California controversy. It is a mistake to
suppose that even the California Conven.
tion has disposed of the slavery question.
It turns out that the article restricting sla
very had only passed the Committeeof the
Whole, and sub silentio. It had not been
'reported to the House at the date of the
last advices. It is manifest that there is
to be an opposition to it at the ne t stage
of proceeding. Not even Dr. Gin, of
Mississippi. offered any oppositin to it in
the preliminary singe; but, accordipg to
theNew York Tribune, Dr. Gwin's spe.
cial mission to California i as to defeat the
The Administration sent out Gen. Riley
wiih special instructions to proniote the
formation of a State government, with a
view to get rid of this disturbing question,
but several private individuals of energy
and itifluence also went to Califor-ia with
a view to secure a constitution unrestricted
as to slavery. There is to be a severe
struggle still'in California before the anti
slavery article is adopted.; but it will be
adopted, and the scene of strife will, there
fore, be transferred to the United States
But there is still another difficulty in the
rear. Another portion of California, em
bracing the Mormon settlements, now con
tains a few slaves. and the Mormons, in
their form of government, have not exclu
ded slavery. When they come forward
with a State Coostitution, then will be
another controversy. The South will be
really in a helpless predicament. First,
they will be forced to permit the admission
of one State, with a restriction of slavery;
and, next, they must consent to the exclu
sion of another State, because it does not
restrict slavery. The South is, in fact.
called upon to admit three non slavehold
ing States, from. the newly acquired ter
ritory, to say nothing of Atinesota, Ne

at our doors. The South. now on a foot

Mr. Benson, in one of his allusions to M r.
Calhoun, makes the followitng statement :
"A Senator of the United States, lie
had swornt to support the~ Constitution, and
twice attempted to commit treason against
his country, and again was willing to re
niew the infamy. In 183-2. Jackson would
have huniged him as high as Hamant, which
was seven five feet six inches-the warratt
was in the bands of thte A ttney General,
who wvas ordered to have is served utpon
the niext move on the part of John C. Cal
houn, who, wvhen informed oftbis by Letch -
er. of Kentucky, was frighstensed into a chill,
quasiled, and from that hour the nullifica,
tion of '32 was dead."
Admitting this statement to be true, that
the nullification of'32 wvas dead from that
hour, it is a little cotnsolitng to reflect that
it did not die until it hads killed ste high
tasriff of '28,'and the system of protection
forever. But so far from is beina dead,
we. shall be somnewhat surprised if is does
rLot yet contsign Mr. Benton himself to the
tomb. The nullification of '8-2 was notht
ing tmore nor less than the hold and pa
srsotic assetion and maintenance of thie
rights andi remedies of the States against
the usurpatioins of te General Government:

first acts or his administration was to enter on
the Italian war-a palpable attempt to repress
the gallant energies of the Italian people in be.

and thus lesson his own chances for royal power.

enemies of his country: the opposers of its

They speak too distinctly the heart-felt wish of
the French President to clothe himself, at the
earliest practicable period, in royal purple.
This intetioti explains the second inquiry
we have raised. Unible to control the clever
and experienced ministers in his late Cabinet
the President seeks out for those who have no
national reputation; who are no leaders of par.
ties or factions; and whom he expects to use as
his ready too's in the accomplishment of his

of a great blunder? He has himself little solid
popularity: no military glory, no civil reputa

step fatal to his wild project. His weak mitnis

means of reducing hitn and themielves to con

SOUTHVRN RtGtTS.-Our neighbor of
the Intelligencer. speaking of the recent
defect of the democrats in the State of
New Yotk, says.
"The attempt to secure the "leaves anti
fishes" of office, by a sacrifice of South
ern Rights. has resulted in the overthrow
#;f the vile conspirators."
Now, it is notorious that the undivided
sentiment of the whig party in New York
is in favor of free soil, while there is a div
ision among the democrats on the sante
subject.-one party being like the whigs,
in favor of free soil, and the other party
being positively opposed to it. Whai hene
fit, then can accrue to "Southern Rights"
by the defeat of the democrats ?
That the thing may he seen in its proper
light, we clip - the followitig significant
paragraph from the New York Tribune
of the 6th inst. The Tribune i- known 14
