Meeting Qf the Suthrn lors- 9
Feeling at Present.
Yesterday was an interestin and an ex.
citing day in the SO i rV?.ALL.ACE of
(1tur state having obned t floor in the
House the day preceding, I stepped into
that side to near him. but found that his op
itgaE boing heard was precluded un
til next week, in conseciuence of Friday's
being assigned to the consideration 'of
-? privalte bi'Is. Monday being also set apart
for "motions," he will probably not be able
toobtain the floor until Tuesday iext. A
streng energetic and able argument may be
aiicipated from him, for ai more fcarless
nvrepresentative' of Southern rights, and a
more stanuniulupholder of the imterests of
his section, cannot be found on that floor.
* A btronog intellect, vcTgent reasoning, and a
scortf) ajuterfuge aypocrisy, einrac
te- iUtteraritis'f Mr. VA1.LAcr, a,
all times and all places; for lie is thorouirl
.*.y.l"honest man; ns well axsa faithful rep.
resentative of the District which las ob
tilid'the services of so tiziunch and true a
Sethrohbin wo'd and in aet. - Our Delega
tion in the House have hitherto been sileit,
tfqr any want of zeal, or enth6siasm in
the cause, but .solely' for the reason that
N.eir tend' s apposed the enemy might
';operve'rt their support a'nd advocacy of the
jneasures proposed to factions ends, and
gain color from their avowals of the pre
ended origin and ends of this agitation.
.1t labor of love on the part of Lhe Ad
rhinhtrAtii organs at the Nort h. and their
s iymp thisbra at theSouth, has been to piro
A5 ce the impression.that this, controversy.
now; w1aritir between the sections, is but. a
revival of the old Nullification quarrel, and
our Representatives have held their peace
thus far to disprove so foolish and
frivolous an imputationi-as groundless as
it is ab-urd.
The tne haiis arrived, hownever, when it
is neaeswiry for every oi todeline his posi
tion, aid Mr. W"ar.sm:. will 4pe. tI hail
h 'the*.South Cirohaiv lclemation-to be
dlowe'd, miost rrbl:y,y by Mr. Onu, aid
T Mr. Co.coK, it a proper interval, both of
thepO'gent!emoI having vainly enuhdavored
to obtain the floor for soce timae p-ast.
Nowoe doubts the positioni of South Car
lina, nor her readiness or desire to "take a
place in the picture;" yet her Representa
tives feel- bound to give a forimal assurancO
9', the fact a body that seeis incredui!ouls of
the existevnce of Southern spirit or Sou i
er intelligence-jud-ig from the toie
and tenor of its proceedines.
Finding that nothing wiis to he done in
the Iouise. I adjourned to the Senate, in
'-time-to'hear the speech of Mr. Siaci.is,
which was as thorough a Free-soil a pro
duction, as HALF or SEWARD could have
givenbirth to. This speech (to tie whole
of which, I listened most attentivelv-think
ing of that sword all the while,) confirmed
most conclusively the suggestions as to the
-.opinions of this gentleman, made in the
Telegraph last suiniier, and at that tine so
positively contradicted, on the authority of
some of his friends, who werx doubtless not
fully "posted up" as to his sentinients, for lie
- not only declared that the instructions of his
State required him to vote for attaching the
Wilmot proviso to all Territorial bills, but
- em hatically added his own conviction of the
propriety of such a procedure.
lie went even furthcr,and assailed the in
stitution on ioral grounds, declaring it to he
against natural rights, and used ve'rv uncom
pliPe ntary terms relativo to OIw _etser'al sui.

--suggested by thle proeediigs of thme flast
lay's sessions. T1ho feelings of the pirivate
mani may lean towards the peopille who have
so higly hoinored him--hnt this pubilic
iianifestation of his policy and opiinions
would certaiinly not iisucre himii anorther
-tiumphanl reception in Sottth-arolia.
But let this pas--for~ his publdishedu speer b
