of the Southern people has leenstirred to ie
bottom ; they mean 1htLL they have seen tn
pending danger and desir etion ; thwy mean
that they have borne it as long as it is a vir.
tue to bear, ad they meat tha e ahey will not
fi~rleit the character of fr'men. I tell the
honorable Senator that he may mistake that
feeling. Do you suppose it is possible that
nearly half the States of thet Union, your co.
States, States associated with you, shall be
compelled to bear all the burdens of a foreign
condition ; that while we are linked together
as if fraternally we must k-ep standing ar
mies on our borders, be continually harassed,
irritated, disturbed, stirred to madness, and
that we shall continue to bear all these bur
dens of' a foreign attitude, and take none of
the compensating good? The thing must
stop. The Conastitution was wisely conceived,
skillully, admirably constructed, sleunate to
all the purposes ijr which it was iniended ;
bat our present condition of affairs throw
wide open all the portals for our invasion and
destruction. it is for you to shut them, or,
with the help of heaven, we must shutthem
our.-elves. Call it treason, gentlemen, and
make the best of it ; but I tell you that unless
these things cease, much as we have adored
the Union, much as we have sacrificed fCo its
taintenaine, much as we are willing yet to
contribute to uphold it that it may scatter its
bleszings to unborn millions, it becomes our
honor .ad our existence to maintain ourselves.
We cannot peruit the [nioii to be a mere
badge of servitude. We cannot permit it
eternally to be upon us as an incubus, crush
ing out out very life and breath. Regard it,
gentlelen, as it is; your minds cannot come
to a different conclusion. I have too much
respect fur the courage of the North to sup
pose that they would tolerate such a condition
of things if' it wete reversed. They would
not; and yet you presune to d.nounce it as
treason, becatse we say that in a condition
of' things which we cannot tolerate, we will
sunder the Utnion, pull it to pieces, column,
base and tower, betore we will submit to be
crushed by a government which is our own
as well as yours ; to which we con ibute as
well as you; and which we will defend with
our li*e's blood as well as you, as long as it
zhall be a guvernment securing to us, as to
you, equality, life, and liberty.
Mr. P-residett I did not design to go so far;
but I felt that some of these remarks were
due to the inquiries which were made by the
honorable Senator front Wisconsin. What I
have said, I believe. .\y purpose was to ask
the Senator froma 1llinois whether his amend
ment was not a mnere tumatter of party tactics,
an.l whether he would not withdraw it, so that
we might b. permitted to come fairly and
sqnarely, without eIbarrassmeat, without
bluntin'g the edge of this inonuiry, to a consid
eratiol of* the true question which is before us.

formed the last duties previous to interment with
mechanical precision, and without shedding a tear.
Her first words were spoken at the grave, when
the sexton had raised his spade to throw earth
upon the coffin. "Nay," cried Katie, arresting
his arm and showering a lapful of flowers into the
grave, " I alway. covered mother up, and she
used to say I did it so gently." There were few

Northern Opinion of Non-Intercourse.

The great basis of Southern strength is agri

through protection to Noi thern interests, half
of the ,trength that natui ally lotigs to it is
