We find Utile in tho above to winch wc crn
biect, that we copy it in full, offering some
comments; The llrcord says : "And what is
th position of the South, pray ? Is it a position
of antoconlsm to the General Government?"
yfaj reply that thi is the very question in dis
pute." Our ovn' opinion is that she is in no
position of antagonism to the General Govern
ment, twit Um si i ft- was ia a position of antngo
ijisra to the Nortli, and placed there by the North
herself., The movement in favor of the Wihnot
Proviso was wholly sectional, and if met at all,
the opposition must be sectional ; and such op
position, to be cfli'dive, must be united and firm
This, however, does not necessarily presuppose
nullification, as there are cuniliiutioual means of
Apposing the ptssge of such laws. We niid it
would be " placing ,Wi -ori in a false position
towards her sister States of the South," to repeal
the, resolution, It would be equivalent to pro
claiming that Missouri will uot "co-operate
with theslaveholding States in " studi measures
as may be deemed pecessury for our mutual
protection against! the encrnachmenls of North
ern fanaticUm" a dcelurat ion which might rea

all hhi where the two jectkija might oei-iijiy
aUgouif lis positions.
We stated ia the article referred to in tlie 1
Record, that we had ho Intention of iliicissiig
the p-iWipk eontaincd in the Jackson llesolu
lions, flie subject not teeming to be of tufUcient
Importance" but, a the Editor of lh Rtcvrd
serm't to hare token tip the idea that we favor
all the positions laid down in the Resolutions,
we will briefly review, Hum, as it is somewhat
disagreeable to be so eniirely inisundcrsood.
The first resolution declares that Congress has
no power to legislate u the subject of slavery
so as to affect the inslittrtion in the States, the
District of Columbia, or the Territories.' We
fully" concur In the opinion that Congress has
'jno power' to legislate upon tli sullied within
the Stales but with 'regard to Uie District, of
Columbia and tlio, Territories, we must conf.ee s
the questions' 'en too tibstrusa nd complicated
for our limited knowledge, "thai the Wilmot
Proviso," as urged ' in the second . resolution,
would bit '4' calculated to alienate one portion of
the Union from another, and tend ultimately to
disunion," we presume will hardly be dented at
this stage of oitr tiatiotial experience. ' The third
resolution wps a fair and honorable offer. The
famous Fifth Resolution, the one all the fuss is
about, reads as follows; "
'' 5. That in the event of the passage of any
act by Congress conflicting with the principles
herein expressed, Missouri will be found in
hearty co-operation with the slavelioldirit; States
In such measures as may be deemed necessary
or our mutual protection against the encroach
ments of Northern fanaticism.
As rcmarkod by:the liecord, the resolution is
" uncertain and indefinite in. ila character wc
therefore feel' at liberty to give It such a con
struction, as wc think will show that it oiighl to
remain unrepealed : Congress might pass the
Wilmot Proviso; if this had boen done it would
have been" In bppsiiioni to the wishes of the
entire' South ; by many ' considered ' one if a
scries of encroachments to which it would be
dishonorable and dangerous longer to. submit;
the originators of 'tins resolutions contemplated
the passage of thd Wilmot 'Proviso nnd legisla
tion upon slavery in the pUtrict of Columbia, as
encroachments on Southern rights. They might
eiterlin that opinion without lessening the
force of the warning they ntterod. It 'was
belter that this expression of opinion, supported
and endorsed as it was by the Democracy, be
.forc.Benton's appeal -than as now th majority
of, the Stale should come before than after the
passage of the measures against which they
were directed. Then let them remain as a
warning, for tho danger is not past, and will not
be (ill the South turns' her attention to Coloni
zation as a substitute for Extension of territory.
Nor do we on our part hesitate to express the
fear that the Wilmot Proviso might be followed
i . . w . ...
at some future time, when the North may have
become much stronger, by an attempt to abolish
slavery in the States; and then indeed must the
South come to her feet, for the General Gov
ernment will have started out of its sphere on a
course woful to , the , South and woful to the
whole country. Viewing the question as above
Set loAh, we agree with the Legislature when
it virtually says: We must protect our country
against such disastrous laws; no Southern Stale
can do it singly; therefore we must "co-operate"
with. each btiier ih "such measures; as msty be
deemed necessary.'' &c. Now ought not Mis
souri to "co-operate ' with her sister Slates of
the ; Soutii, oii the slavery question, so long as
they, keep , themselves . w-ilhiii constitutional
bounds? But, somo say, South Carolina was
threatening secession and nullification, and this
co-operation was pledged lo her. We beg Ihese
geuticmen to recollect that South Carolina is not
tho "South," by a jugfull. Besides, these Jack-
soii Resolutions were in response to certain
resolutions sent to our Legislature by Virginia
and Florida. If thoso resolutions contained any
nulliiica'ion or secession sentiments, we pre
sume ' the Virginia mid Florida resolutions
would have been long ago and often paraded
before the public by Col. Benton 'and the Benton
papers, to show the treasonable nature of the
"co-operation" asked of Missouri, and to
which she had responded aye,

out the West, to-be influenced in on eminent
degree, by the success or failure of their efforts
in this respect. Wtdl, at last it passes ; now
let us glance at this vote on the River und Har
bor Bill, and sea who were its friends. On the
passage of the bill in the House, the vote stood :,
103 ayes, 75 nays. The Whig vote was 70 ayes
and 5 navs; tho Democratic vote 70 nays 33
ayes. In the Senate, on the 24th inst., tho a
mendments made in committee of the Whole,
were concurred in. These amendments appro
priate $00,000 for the Mississippi ; !,00,000
for the Ohio;' and $40,000 each, for the Arkan
sas and Missouri rivers ; and $150,000 for the
purchase of snag-boats, dredging machines, Sec,
for thosa rivers. 'They also make an appropri
ation for a survey of the Falls of the Ohio, fur
ther amended by tho Senate so as to provide for
an e(iiiiaf? for enlarging the Louisville Canal ;
another appropriation was for a break-water at
Wankegan. I n the Senate, the rote on the
bill as amended, was 35 ayes, 23 nays; all but 2
of the negative voles being Democratic, nnd the
Whig affirmative vote carrying the measure.
How many more such votes will be required to
convince Western Democrats that their parly is
inimical to Western interests, and that their
true and practical friends are the Whigs ?
