LETTER FROM HON. M. L. BONIIAM.
To the Camden Dinner to' Hon. Jus. C/tcsnut.
Eduefiki.d, Sept., 1850.
Gentlemen :?It would give me pleasure
to join you in doing honor to our fellow- I
citizen, the lion. James Chesnut, Jr., who >
will deserves the compliment you are about j
to pay him; and, I regret that my engage- |
tnents, pi ice it entirely out of my power to
be present with you.
The Presidential election, in its results i
exercises much influence over the legislation
of this country. The principles of the
candidates, as usually indicated by the party
platforms, or by the party press, or by the
candidates themselves, are those supported
by the successful partv for the siNiceedlnnr !
four years* Hence, il is of consequence to
determine wisely the principles nnd candidate
to be supported by the South in the
approaching election. The question whether
she should consent to support a candidate
who is not avowedly opposed to the
u?u>muu u> oijuanci ouvcrt'iyiuy in I'iC
Territories, is ono of serious jmport, and I
am graliBed to believe that, the weight of
your demonstration will be against supporting
any advocate of that heresy so dangerous
to Southern Rights.
The Kansas Bill of '58, commonly
? known as the English Bill, having been acquiesced
in generally by the South, and
desiring, as I did from the begining, that
there should be no division in the South
OD that ouostion. I nlmnM nfnl>oV.U

again have adverted to my vote against it,
but for tbe extraordinary course which
Benator Toombs has recently thought proper
to pursue in reference to that measure and
the votes of Gen. Quitman and myself.

his vote ir. favor of the Bill before the.
people of Georgia, and in doing so, at Lexington,
on the 26th August, used the follow*
ing language, as reported the Augusta
Dispatch of the 30th August, which language,
up to this date, is uncontradicted,
no far as I am informed, viz:
"He reviewed the Lecompton constitution
?-alluded to tllft vnfjtl nf Onilmtn on/I
J3onbara, who bad voted against it. He
would as soon draw two names from the
Grand Jury box in Ogletborpe country, for
political leaders, as to select them. He
Ictie'w of no two men living with less qualifloat
ion to ioatruct the people. He defended
Douglas, and said be would vote for him
sooner then for any ma* of the Opposition
tfotth or ,South Jn
Of course the Eoglish Bill is mean(, as
Gen. Quitman And myself both voted for
the Senate Bill.
It ia difficult to discern the object of this
, fling. If he raeaut to contrast himself, with
Gen Quitman and myself as political leader^
and instructors o^ibe people, with the
view to impress on the mind's of bU' tearers
a proper estimate of the valua of- tho En#
glisb Bill, it ?raf, to say the least, ? mode
of argument towards a coieinporary of
more than questionable delicacy. Towards
tlio dead, it will strike all right-minded
persons as most indelicate, undignified, and
unbecoming bis bigh post. Good taste in
debate, however, has never been regarded,
I believe, even by his admirers, as tho peculiar
forte of the Senator.
As to tho forco of tho contrast in his
own mind between Quitman aud himself,
the Senator's vanity greatly deceives him,
if he supposes that many who knew them
both ngreo with him. Gen. Quitman always
commanded in Congress, and in tho
i South, tlie coofidence nnd respect of not
only his own parly, but also of liis enemies.
Can as much be said of tlie Georgia Scnalor,
even as to bis own parly ? Quitman was
tbe consistent and eliosen leader of tbc
Southern Right party. Does that party
ever lake counsel of Mr. Toombs ? Of what
party is lie tbc honored leader, that be
should disparage the memory of as true a
patriot, as honest, consisteut and fearless
leader as the South has even had ?
The Senator was a member of the House
in'50,and opposed the admission of California.
Iler constitution, irregularly and
without precedent, had been gotten up nnd
brought before Congress under military
dictation, and her hurried and irregular
admission subsequently "imparted validity
lo the unauthorized action of a portion of
the inhabitants of California, by which an
invidious discrimination is made against
the property of the fifteen slave-holding
States." Speaking in the debate of the
rights of the South to an equal participation
in all the Territories, the Senator said :
"Deprive us of this right, and appropriate
this common property to yourselves ; it i*
then your government, not mine. Then I
am its enemy, and I will then, if I can,
bring my children and my constituents to
the altar of liberty, and, like Llammilcar,
I would swear them to eternal hostility to
your foul domination.1' And yet, after
the consummation of this great wrong to
the South, unliko the Carthagenian, the
Senator reversed took to swearing by the
compromise measures of '50' of which the
California swindle was not the least objectionable,
and consistent at least iti this, is nt
it still. And, now t jo. he is fast beroininor
tlic advocate of Senator Douglas for the
Presidency, who will accept the nomination
of ;he Democratic party on the squatter
sovereignty platform, or not at all. The
Senator's moral and mental structure does
not enable him to appreciate the lofty patriotism,
the unswerving political integrity,
the stern adherence to principle which
characterized John Anthony Quitman?a
"that was, to this,
Hyperion to a satyr."
I shall not imitate the Seuator, in vindicating
my vote against the English Hill,
on llie ground that the Senator docs not
command my respect as a leader. But, I
will hero assure bim that, his estimate of
myself is not higher than mine of him.
The Grand Jurors of Oglethorpe, I doubt
not, possess the average intelligence of tbeir
class elsewhere in our country, though the

for political leadership from his nsiDg it as
a disparaging standard of tho fitness of
Gen. Quitman and myself for that distinction;
Some of them I suppose, would represent
the country with credit, and would be no
ignoble leaders nnd instructors of the people*
They would, perhaps, be none the worse
that they havo not been so long in Washing
ton as himself. Now, the Senator offers
the ckinccs of drawing, for our counterparts,
the best men in tho box, with the
hazard of drawiue tha most indiflf.?w?nt

On the iTili of July, 1S04, a young
man from New Hampshire arrived in Boston
all but penniless and all but friendless. lie
was twenty-two years of age, and had come
to take the first steps in the career of lif?i at
the capital of IS'ew England. Three days
afler arriving in Boston he presented himself
without letters of recommendation, to
Mr. Christopher Gore, then just rcturne \
from England afler an official residence of
several }*ears and solicited a place in his
office ns clerk. His only introduction was

i had heen there a week before Mr. Gore
j learned that his name was Daniel Webster!

street, (now Kingston street,) in Boston, and
while he was in attendance at the commencement
at Dartmouth in 1804, to re
ceive his degree, Daniel supplied his place.
At that school, at the ago of ten, I was
then a pupil, and there commenced a friendship
which lasted, without interruption or
chill, while his life lasted, of which, while
mine lasts, the grateful recollection will
never perish. From that time forward I
knew, I honored, I loved him. I saw him
at nil seasons and on all occasions ; in the
flush of public triumph, in the intimacy of
the fireside, in the most unreserved interchange
of personal confidence, in health,
and in sickness in sorrow and in joy ; when
early honors began to wreathe his brow
and in after life through most of the important
scenes of his public career. 1 saw
him on occasions that 6bow the manly
strength, and, what is better the manlv
weakness of tbe human heart; and I declare

and of men, that I never heard from him
the expression of a wish unbecoming a
good citizen and a patriot?tbo utterance
of a word unworthy of a gentleman and a
Christian ; that I never knew a more generousspirit,
a safer adviser, a warmer friend.

Two hundred and twenly-nine years ago,
this day our beloved city received, from the
General Court of llio Colony, the honored
name of Boston. On tho long roll of
those whom she has welcomed to her nurturing
bosom, is there a name which shines
witti a brighter lustre than his ? Seventy
two years ago, this day, the Constitution of

of the people by George Washington.

* Description by Mrs. Eliza Buckministcr
Lee, Webster's Private Correspondence, 1,
A RUSSIAN LADY.
We were now on- board the Sylphyde,
proceeding from the Neva to Peterhof.
Nothing remained of the clamor that had
been, but the low mumbling of a krtot of
naval courtiers near the wheel, who, alike
indifferent to the raging elements, the
pitching boat, or the creature sufferings
aiound them, continued their discourse in
broken phrases, between lone drawn whiffs
of JewcofFs "superlatives," for which privilege
they had preferred paying a two-shil
ling fare in our steamer to a free passage in
a erown-boat, where smoking is prohibited.
To somo such weighty consideration we
were probably indebted for the company of
a lovely woman who sat opposite to us,
and whose Madonna-like countenance I had
been intently admiring for some time ; foiy
thrusting a small, delicately-gloved hand
into the pocket of her eashmere morningdress,
she pulled out an embroidered case,
from whence, leisurely selecting a paperoa,
she shut it with a loud snap, and returned
it to her pocket, looking round meanwhile
as if in search of something, which,
in my ignorance, I supposed to be some
rough surface, whereon to rub a lucifer;
but one of the naval smokers, before
alluded to, better acquainted with the nature
of the difficulty,, gallantly approached
her, and proffered the lighted end of his
cigar. The lady rose, their heads drew
near, she obtained a light, and gracefully
thanked him ; be bowed, and tbey both resumed
their seats, she?the beautiful Madonna
!?sat there puffing away most manfully,
her elbow over the side, and her legs
across. My friends informed me that she
was really a woman of some consequence,

BONAPARTE'S LOVE-LETTERS. I
The great Napoleon, when absent on his
campaigns, used to write the most tender
love-letters to his wife, Josephine. Here I
is one of his short war-notes: "I write I
very often to you, my dear love, but very l
seldom hear from you. You are a fickle, s
ugly, wicked creature. Perfidous! to de- s
ceive a poor husband and ardent lover! I
Must ho forfeit his rights because he is far <
away, burdened with difficulties, cares and |
fatigue? Without his Josephine, without <
the assurance of her love, what remains for
him on earth ? What 0.111 he do ? A
thousand loving kisses.?Bonapate." ,
The next is curiously lender: "I don't
love you a bit; on tbe contrary ; I detest | ,
you. You are an ugly, wicked, stupid <
hussy. You never write td me, and you 1
do not love your husband. You know the
delight your letters afford me, and yet you I
send mo only half a dozen hurried lines. |
Pray, madam, what do you with yourself <
all day ? What important business is it j
that prevents your writing to your fund j
lover ? What affection stifles and puts
aside the love, the tender and constant love,
you promised me ? Who can this new
wonder be, this new lover, that absorbs all
your time, tyrannizes over your dnys, and
prevents you from thinking of your husband
? Take care Joseohine. some fine
night, the doors closed, and I'll surprise
you. But seriously, I am very uneasy, my
dear love, at receiving no news of you ;
write me four pages immediately, full of
those charming things that fill my heart
with tenderness and delight. I hope to
embrace you before long, then I shall cover
you with a million burning kisses."?Bonaparte.

of the LondoD Times. We copy a portion
of his narrative:
"One of the most interesting and novel
departments of the establishment is that in
