The Statesman for the Session of the Legislature. The Secessionists in Favor of the Constitution.
The South Carolina State Convention, on
Wednesday, adopted V report recommending
tbat proper measures be taken lor the forma
n.m t,f a Southern Confederacy, by tbe appoint
ment of Commissioner, to the alavcboldiog
set..,. ..kin? thorn to call Conventions to con
their Dolitical relations. The South Car-
voted Ibemeelves out of
VitU4 juweiwii. . ' -
the Union: but they evince a strong disposition
unt to remain out alone. They scorned wait
ing for tho concurrence of other States belore
n8siuir the Secession Ordinance; but now hav
ing committed that revolutionary act, they are
eieer for sympathy and co operation. Tbis is
at lcaat a good sign. It may cause delay, and
the very tflort to form a new Union may lead
at Ust to the persuahiou thtt no better can be
formed than the old one, under which we have
lived and prospered for nearly three-fourths of
It would appear tbu the msmbeis of the South
Carolina Convention themselves are convinoedof
this; for tbe report they adopted suggests (and
tbe suggestion is intended for the benefit of other
slavehjldlug States n well as South Carolina;
that "the instrument called the Constitution
tbe United Stites, is a suitable and proper basis
to he urr.,.j for a provisional government."
Tbe report then ewe on to reason upon tbe pro
priety of its recommendation, Sua rtn the high
est compliment to the framers of the Conalnu
tioo and to the instrument Itself, as "a good
form of government for those sufficiently virtu
ous, intelligent and patriotic, to cause it to
; fairly and honestly construed and Impartially
' Neither the Constitution nor the form
' government adopted for the confederated States
is at fttult. Both are admirably adapted ia
form and struoture for the purpose intended
What then is the difficulty, tbat the South Car
olina Secesjionirts are unwilling to remain long
er under that, form of government, and yield
obedience to that Constitution, which iseo aupe
rior to any new one tbey can devise, that tbey
propose to make it the basis of their new bouth
n rnnfodpracvl There is no pretence that
the Constitution has been perverted by the Fed
eral Government, In any of its departments.
The only objection hinted at in the report, ac
cording to the telegraphic account of it, Is tbat
ia some of the States the Constitution has been
mUlnterpretated and. violated. Now that very
thing has occurred often In South Carolina and
other Southern State), aa well as at the Nortb,
and will unavoidably occur in any Confederacy
of States tbat can be formed with" a'wrltten
Constitution. For infractions of itself, by in
dividuals and by Statet, the' Constilntion has
provided a remedy by the powers vested in Con.
eress and in the Federal Courts. Secession
and the formation of a new Confederacy will
not remedv the evil, but increase it; because
tbe new Constitution will be constantly for
lone time, subject to questioni of interpretation
and construction, which havo been long ago
settled and forever put to rest under our present
oae. : - -"

Iii 1859 we bad a Democratic, and in I860, a

here in the beginning of tbe year, sticklers for
reform and retrenchment, but the above items
tell bow their legislation has operated. Tbey
auspended the school Tibrarjf tax entirely, and
reduced the school tax proper, one-tenth of a
mill, while they Increased the Bute Debt or
Sinking Fond tax one-half of a mill, and tbe
General Revenue one-tenth of a mill, thus
making the difference in tbe amount of taxes
In the county as above stated.
We would be pleased to have our eotempora-

of tbe State, so that the aggregate inoreaae, in
the whole State, might be obtained and present

The Pennsylvania Legislature.
Both branches of this body organized at Har-
risburg on New Tear's day. All the officers
are Republican. Mr. Palmer, of Schuylkill
eounty, is elected speaker of tba Senate, and
Mr. Davis, of Venango, Speaker of the House.
Oor. Pace er delivered hia message to the Leg
islature on Wednesday, a brief account of which
was given in our telegraphio despatches of that
date. It appears to be in the main of a con
servative character . It is noticeable that Gov
Paceee recommends that the master be permit
tod to retain tba servioee of hia slave, while
sojourning in Pennsylvania; and also that tbe
Missouri Compromise , be restored. On
this latter point, he differs from Gov. Morgan,
of New York, who is opposed to the restora
tion of the line.
Gov. Paceer's term of three years expires
the 15th Inst , when his auooetsor, A. G. Curtin,
will be inaugurated. Tbe latter : baa' already
selected his Cabinet Samuel A. Purviance,
of Butler oounty, to be Attorney General, and

my duty honestly and fully, and trust tbat tbe
good sense and juetioe of the people would give
me credit for good intentions, even if my Judg
ment should turn out not to bave been good, i
must confess that I regret that the capers are
roakiue so much of my position here, i do not
deserve the least credit for what I am doing,
which ia nothing more than any one else should
do In my position, and, perhaps, not half so
well as many others would ao. l receive near

tnem irom strangers, l nope tnat it will not be
long before something will occur to give me a
