titm o the rights and protection of th
intercuts of New Iinhiml, must alwa
stand as immortal in its infamy, if seces

States. The act of New lailaud wnsth
more unjustifiable and inexcusable, hi
cause it was the very essence of luca
selfishness. The war, undertaken it

to the riyht of impres-ntent. which ai

Without attaching too much impoi

that the riL,'ht ol secession was churned U!
a very real and live doctrine bv the New

The latter, in the time of the trouble o:
the former, when the war cloud restct
heavily upon it, when New Iinlam.
bhu id had been shed, generously am
magnanimously declared that the cans
of New Kniiland was the cause of Nortl

to lose and nothing in prospect to ain,

But the New EtiLjlander was never
wanting in the resources ot ingenuity
either in politics or mechanics. She has
always had a happy facility of shaping
pretexts into principles, and making ex
pediency the rule of statesmanship. She
trims her sails to the wind of policy.
When she was dependent upon importa
tion for her wares and merchandise, she
was the advocate of free trade. Mr.
Webster, who immortalized himself in his
defence and maintenance of protective
high tariff views, won his first spurs as
the champion of free trade. The wind is
again changing, and the time is not far
oft', when in the advocacy of free trade.
New England will need another Webster

In the ever changing conditions of pub

can ask for the South, if we should think

The 51st Congress was oicned yester
day under circumstances of auspicious
harmony. The supremacy of the repub

recognized formal declaration of the su

The apprehension might exist from pre
vious declarations that the republican
majority would make dangerous and in
stilting use of its pow er by compelling, or
attempting to compel, members elect
whose scats were to be contested, to
itaud aside until their eases had been de

wo are jilad to bo able to say
that notwithstanding the
influx of now stores, and the
largo stocks of goods, the
"Hig Kaekei Store" retains
all its old friends and adds
new ones daily. The reason
isplain and easy of under
standing. We warrant every
thing wo sell to bo as repre

anybody in Ashoville, iindcan
easily undersell anyone. We

that we can easily sell them
