The Charleston correspondent of the N.
Y. Tribune says:
A conversation, which I could not help
hearing, at the Charleston Hotel last night,
conviuces me that the disaffection among
the slaves is more general even than I had
imagined. A member of the Convention,
who comes from the District of Prince
George, was relating to a friend circumstan
ces of a plot which he had discovered, the
ramifications of which extended for miles
around, and in which the servants of some
score of planters were concerned. Tho idea
which possessed the slaves seems to have
fired in Charleston Harbor, they should
make a stampede, taking with them all tho
property they could lay their hands upon.
The most pleasing part of the story to
tho relator seemed to be the remembrance
of the unmerciful whipping which he or
dered to be administered to the men and
women concerned in it. This is no singu
lar case; informarion reaches me daily,
which I do not intend to reveal, which
proves beyond all doubt that the first gun
fired against the United States Govern
ment will explode a powder magazine, the
vaults of which extend beneath the feet of
the whole South.
