incensed against South Carolina. for boldly
struggling in a cause, which they have solcinly
declared to be just and righteous, and which ir
a few years, they look upon as inevitable ?
The natural and civil relations-subsisting be
tween the various Southern States, and the na
tureu.f. the contrpversy now between the Nortd
and the South, utterly negatives any such con.
elusion.' Such conduct would, in our judgment
be cotrary to reason and experience.
Butfurther. The Southern States, far fron
believing themselves involved in the contest b3
South Carolina. will be forced to regard them
selves as part authors of the conflict. For is il
not in the power of these States by their combi
ned ef'orts in Congress, to prevent any strugglel
.Who believes that.if.as a body, Southern mem
bers in"Congiress, should sternly resist co-erciot
by the .neral Government, that force wouh
be employed? Should the North, against th<
remoustrances of the whole South, forcibly re
sist the secession of South Carolina-what
would be the inevitable result? The; eertaia
and sudadea.dissolution of this Union. The
Southern States, therefore, hold this issue com
pletely in their own power;, and knowing and
feeling th-at the cause we espouse is- just: that
our common wrongs. to redress which prompts
our action, are grievous and severe ; and that
each State has the right, for causes deemed by it
sufficient eaceably to withdraw from the Union
-they oouild never regard South Carolina as
as -involving them in a contest with the Gene
ral Governmeut " without cause." Unless by
the most strange inconsistency and suicidal poli
cy, they will consider themselves identified with
us in this great issue. These States will render
us aid, and at no distant day, join us in a South
ern Confederacy. They will certainly withhold
all aid and sympathy from the Government in
its attempts at co-ercion. It would be highly
unjust and ungenerous to our sister States to
suppose them capable of any other course.
How now the other Southern States could
ook ispon South Carolina in this contest as ac
tuated by " faetious and selfish motives," is to
us wholly inconceivable. To indulge such a be
lief is to-have a poor opinion of the spirit and in
telligence of the Southern people, or to take a
very - superficial view of the S'outhern cause.
In that cause, as we are led to regard it. are in
volved great and everlasting principles, which lie
at.the- bottom of Southern freedom and safety.
The sorereignty and indeendence of the indi
vidual States-the insti utan of slavery-the
&ubject of taxation : these are the watchwords
in theSouthern camp. On these issues, rest the
-all in- all of the Southern States. To maintain
them to the utmost of our strength, with our
blood and our treasure, is an imperative duty, to
tegleetwhicli, is to involve ourselves in ruin.
The other Southern States feel'the growing
imp ortance of these issues. They know they
-n never give in to the necendency of Northern
power, without -losing their freedom and inde
pdtidence; without giving up their institution of
slatery; without subjecting' themselves. to an

Telegraph, in commnenting on the principles
of the Union candidate for Governor, who,
it appears, has iii sunidry specbes denied the

"The controversy between South Carolina
and the General Government is not one of
her own seeking, neither does it concern her
self alone. It is as much a contest between
Georgia and Alabama with the North, as it
is of South Carolina. Whatev'er diffeirence
of opinion .there may be with regard to the
action of the latter State at this time, it is
impossible in the very nture of things that
the neighboring States should bide with the
Federal Government, and aid in her s.ubjuga
tion,' without sealing their own doom. A
State coerced into-submission by the General
Governmen, when reraistngits aggressions
on the institution of 'lav'ery, will be a proc
lamation to the whole world that abolition
is triumphant on this continent. It will be
virtually telling the enemies* of slavery

majority in 'Congress. If the people of
Georgia. desire to let their voice be heard on
the side of effectual resist'mee to Northern
aggression, let them afllrm the right of" a
S~tate to secede, -although they may never

THE CHURCH CAsE.-The latest informa

we have in regard to the law suit., is embraced
in the following paragraphs taken from the
leading editorial of last 'week's issue of. the
Christian Advocate and Journal. We hope
the offer of the Northern book agents will
be received in the -spirit of frank and kind
reciprocity, that all further litigation nud
trouble will be forestalled:
"It is a fact which will, no doubt, be re- I
garded of great importance, that under this
recommendation, the Book Agents of New
York and Cincinnati are brought to a point
from which they are anthorized, by the Gen
end Conference, to offer a settlement of the
ease by -arbitration." In the plan for a 'pa

between the Methodist Episcopal Church.
North, and the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South. adopted at the General Conference of
1848, is found the following resolution:
"2. Resolved, That should the agents
find, upon taking such legal counsel, that
they have not the power to submit the case
to voluntary arbitration, and should a suit at
law be commenced by 'he commissioners of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
said agents are hereby authorized then, and
in that case, to tender to said commissioners
an adjustment of their preferred claims by a

" We are advised, that. under the authority
given by this resolution, the agents at
New York and Cincinnati have resolved,
without unnecessary delay, to offer to settle
the claims of the Methodist Episcopal
-Church, South, in the mode contemplated in
this resolution. How the offer will be re
ceived, we are not able to say. This mode,
of settlement would soon end the contro
