Meeting at Anderson.

of the meeting nt Anderson last week, says:

tho advices from Georgia, Florida and Missisi

j that eo-oper.".tion will be had. It* the leaders in
I Georgia are not deluded, she will join our State
in secession, and com* weal 01 conic wo*, she will

The New York Tribtidtf otf the Right of
The right of a State to dissolvo .her connection
with this Government has long boon
n question of serious consideration. The
old Federalists denied it, but sincc the doctrine
of iStule sovereignty bus been more
thoroughly discussed, the right of its exercise
is becoming generally conceded. Northern
politicians never boldly took up the cudgel
for the rights of the States ns sovereigns,
until tire passage of tlio Fugitive iSlavo law.
Then they began to declaim against the tyranny
of the Federal Government, nnd ventilate
strict construction. For this reason,
wo are disposed to regard the jKissage of the
Fugitive Slave law as a very fortunate occurrence.
It gave (Ircely and his party a
tendency in the right direction, and forced
them in their efforts, to sustain themselves
in nullifying that law, to assrtmc the strongest
State flights attitude. To this do we
attribute it, that the Tribune can write such
a sensible article as the following, vindicating
the right of peaceable secession. It is an extract
from its editorial columns of the 9th instant
"The telegragh informs us that most of
the cotton States ars meditating a withdrawal
from the Union because of Lincoln's election.
Very well ; tljey have a right to meditate,
and meditation is a profitable employ
mem oi leisure. \v o have a chronic, invincible
disbelief in disunion as a remedy for
either Northern or Southern grievances; \>o
cannot perceive any necessary relation between
the alleged die -so and tiiis ultra
heroic remedy; Mill, we .-ay, if anybody sees
lit to meditate disunion, let them do so unmolested.
That was a base and hypocritie
row that the House once raised, at Southern
dictation, about the ears of John Quincy
Adams, because, he presented a petition for
the dissolution of the Union. The position* r
had a right to make the refjuest ; it was the
member's duty to present it. And* now, if
the cotton States consider the value of the
Union debatable, we main tain their perfect
right to discuss it. Nay, we hold, with .Jefferson,
to the inalienable right of eommuni /
ties to alter or abolish forms of (iovernment
that have become oppressive or injurious;
and if the cotton States idiall become si'.isfied
that they can do better out of the l'nion
than in it, wo insist on lettitip them go in
peace. The right to secede may bq a revolutionary
one, but it exists nevertheless; and wo
do not see how one party can have a right to
do what another party has a right to prevent.
We must ever resist thp asserted right of any
State to remain in the l'nion, and nullify or
defy the laws thereof; to withdraw from the
Union is quite another matter. And whenever
a considerable section of our Union shall
deliberately ro.-olve to go out, we shall resist
all coercive measures designed to keep it in.
We hope never to live in a lteptiblio whereof
one section is penned to the residueJiy bayonets.

liberty, if iiot tlu* abstract right of secession,
we must insist tluit the step be tnken, if ever
it shall be, with the deliberation and gravity
befitting so momentous an issue. Let ample
time be given for reflection ; let the subject be
fully onvas.sed before the people, and let a
popular vote be taken in every case before.se- ?
cession is decreed. Let thepeople.be t?>!d just
why they are urged to break up the confederation
; let them have both sides of the question
fully presented ; let them reflect, deliberate,
then vote; and let the net. of secession
be the echo of an Amistakablc popular fiat.
A judgment thus rendered, a demand for separation
so backed, would either bo ncquieseed
in without the effusion of' blood, or
those who rushed upon carnage to defy nnd
defeat it, would place theinselvcK .dearly in
the wrong "
