How the Secession Plot was Hatched.
TI10 " Life and Correspondence of John A.
Quitmnn" comes at an opportune time. Gen.
Quitman was a secessionist of the stmitcst
sect, a prophet of the extremo school of South
ern rights, a defender of every filibustering
seheme, and an earnest advocate of the pro
ject of a Southern Confederacy. Tho whole
secession movement which lias just Inkcn
place has been carried in close accordance with
bis plans. Its present and future policy, as far
as can bo judged, is exactly what he urged.
An intimate triend and militnry comrade of
Jefferson Davis, their views of Southern prog
ress and expansion were alike. We are enti
tled to regard Gen. Quitman's views, as dis
played in this biography by a friendly hand, as
indicative of tho designs of the Montgomery
Government. Yet he died over two years since,
and his plans and policy were of no recent
date, len or fifteen years ngo they were
plainly given out, and they add another proof
that the destruction of our Federal Unton bos
been plotted and prepared for a long time,
without reference to any fancied grievances of
the present.
John A. Quitman, like many of tho bitterest
opponents of freedom, first drew the breath of
me at me tree nuriu. xiu wua uyfu ui imiuu
beck, N. Y., in 1793, and laid the basis of his
robust frame by enrly rambles among hills and
fields. When about twenty years old, furnished
with a fair sharo of school learning, a stout
heart, and a scauty purse, bo set out for tho far
wot, men no turiner man umo, to stuuy law,
and carve out his future. Here he traded his
pistols for Cruise's Digest, an! studied law to
good purpose, acting also as agent of,the Land
Office, lie foresaw tho future wealth of Ohio,
and the wonderful effects which would be pro
duced by tho " grand New York canal," which
was then in progress. But money was scarce,
and professional duties hard in that half-settled
region, ill supplied with roads and markets,
and without largo towns.
The prosperity of tho cotton regions invited
bis intelligent gaze, and in the fall of 1821 ho
bade farewell to tho community at Delaware,
where be was generally esteemed nud respected,
and set out on horseback for Natchez. There
be settled, obtained, by great good fortune, a
hare in tho prosperous law business of William
B. Griffith. Natchez was a small place, but
considerable trade centred there, and it was
not an ill prospect for an active young lawyer,
when there were one hundred and twenty in
dictments tried at the first term after his arri
val. From early life he was n Democrat, oppose 1
to what wera then called Ilamiltonian views of
tbe Federal Government, and he entered into
politics with vijror and determination. Like
most of the frontier politicians, a story is related
of him that he won an election by his skill at
a shooting-match. lie was elected to the Leg
islaturc, and was afterwards made Chancellor.
His taste for military pursuits resulted in the
formation of an excellent volunteer company,
under his own care, and ho received various
commisssions in the militia of Mississippi,
which brought him into notice when the Mex
ican war broke out. His services in that strug
gle were valuable, aud are related by his biog
rapher in a spirited stylo.
In 1813 the great question of repudiation
arose, the final decision of which has fixed a
lasting stain upon Mississippi. Fivo millions
of dollars worth of State bonds wcro issued
and disposed of in the ninikct, under an act of
the Legislature loaning tuo credit ot tho state
to the Union Bank. Much logic was chojrped
upon the question whether the issue was made
in conformity with tho constitutional provisions
upon the subject ; but the grand fact was and
is undisputed, that the Stato received and used
the money, and then refused to meet the obliga
tions ; whilo tho very Governor who issued and
signed the bonds was foremost in the cry of re
pudiation. Not n soul dreamed of such a con
summation till after the money was squander
ed in extravagance and party corruption, and
then, when innocent holders in Europe were
to be tbe chief sufferers, tho unhullowed yelp
General Quitman was of opinion that tho
bonds wcro illegally issued, but that they ought
to be paid upon principles of general justice.
But it seems that his sense of justice was much
modified by the tone in which it was asked.
Humble petition did very well. But, on the
bond-payers' side, it was argued that England
would mako reprisals, and seizo the cotton of
the State in compensation.
"This roused the pride of our people. Mil
lions they might havo been prevailed upon to
concede; liberally they would have given, had
the application been put in soiuo other form
than a peremptory demand for payment, but
Dot a dime would be yielded to insult and men
ace. It was on ono of these occasions, in a
public meeting, after Quitman had pronounced
a warm appeal for tho payment of tho bonds,
that the speaker who followed him spoke of
English cruisers in the Gulf, and tho right to
seize our cotton. The patriot orator immedi
ately rose, and, with a voice of indignation, and
bis whole frame trembling with emotion, said :
' Sir, in that event, 1 join my countrymen who
oppose the payment of the bonds. My sword
ay, sir. the last drop of my blood, shall he spent
in resisting the demand. My State, sir may
she be always right; but, right or wrong, the
State, sacred, intangible, and uuprofancd, for
ever !'"
At tho outset of tho war, by tho earnest soli
citions of many distinguished Southern gentle
men, Quitman received tho appointment of
Brigadier General, and joined the little army of
General Taylor. lie rendered gallant service
at Monterey, whero a horso was snot under him.
"On tho 22d, Quitman, with Bidgcley's bat
tery, was ordered to hold the woiks he had
stormed on tho preceding day. Tho position
was uncomfortable ; they were exposed to an
incessant cannonade, and the corpses of tho
slaughtered Mexicans had become offensivo ;
the weather was wet and cold ; they had nei
ther blankets nor fire. Tho general shared the
faro of bis troops, and established his quarters

on ono of ltidgeloy's guns. It was rere his
faithful "ervant Harry, who had followed the
assaulting colninn, was heard remonstrating
with his master, and imploring him, ' for tho
sake of mistress and tho children,' not to ex
poio himself no much. 'Take care of your
self, Hftrry,' snid the general. ' Help tho wound
ed ; keep ai near mo as you can. I must push
011 with tho foremost, und trust to Providence.' "
As to the conduct of the war, General Quit
man's fixed opinion wn, that it should bo one
of conquest aud occupation, and not a war on
what he styled Polk's feeble maxim, to conquer
a peace. " He regarded, and justly regarded,
the great bulk of the Mexicans as a bastard
and robber race, incapable of self-government,
and fit only for servitude and military rule."
His desiro wus to subdue and annex the whole
of Mexico, and govern it by tho sword until the
people were tutored and improved by immigra
tion enough to be incorporated with the Repub
lic. The writer of this biography, himself an
earnest Southern Bights mtn, thus expresses
one argument of the aggressive school:
"Humanity and interest, tho stability of our
institutions, and a wiso forecast for the future,
demand of us more than the intervention of nn
abortive diplomacy. Civilized communities
provide guardians for the helpless and imbe
cile, and defences against the lunatic and the
outlaw. Mexico is, and long has been, in this
relation to us, and as her next neighbor aud
nearest friend, and for our own safety, we should
establish these relations with her, with or with
out her consent. American protection and im
migration would soon restore peace, and be the
guaranty for her future prosperity."
It seems now well established, and is believed,
both by our citizens and by observing foreign
ers, that the secession of tho Gulf States is but
the execution of a conspiracy which has been
ripening for years. This movement has been
occasioned partly by tbe belief, real or assumed,
that great pecuuiary gain would result to the
cotton States by forming a separate Govern
ment, and partly by the pertinacious plotting
of hungry demagogues, anxious for spoils and
honors which they saw wcro avoiding their
grasp in the Federal Union.
As early us 1850, and. apropos of the ques
tion of admitting California, General Quitman's
letters, while Governor of Mississippi, foretell
the movement of last winter. He asserts that
secession is necessary and unavoidable, and ad
vises a Convention to annul connection with the
Union, and to adapt the organic law to the new
state of things, "aud that, meanwhile, an effect
ive military system be established, and patrol
uuues most rigiaiy emorcea. ne recommenas
Ihe formation of n central committee to arrange
Elans, referring to Colonels Davis, Thompson,
rown, and others. " In the mean time, every
patriot should leave no point untouched where
his iuflucuco can be exerted. Cheer on the
faithful, strengthen the weak, disarm the sub
missionists with instructions, send the fiery
cross through the land, aud summon every gal
lant son of Mississippi to the rescue."
When Lopez was preparing for his ill
starred Cuban expedition, he had, as is well
known, the most active sympathy and aid of
Gen. Quitman and other ultraists. The plan,
like Walker's expeditions, which met with like
sympathy, was but a step in the scheme of se
cession. It was supposed and contended by
these plotters that, to use tho words of our au
thor, " Cuba, once free, and her resources nut
in motion by an energetic will, the regenera
tion of Mexico and of tho distracted Govern
ments to the South of it would follow, and a
new empire, the centre of the world's produc
tion and commerce, governed by the great
principle of unrestrained free trade, would
soon be established."
In 1851 and 1832, tho correspondence be
tween Quitman and various editors and politi
cians of the extreme school lays down rules of
conduct which fully explain and account for
tho recent scenes in the Charleston Convention,
and separate secession of South Carolina iu
advance of any similar movement elsewhere.
An extended und active organization was kept
up in tho counties ; uieetiucs wcro held, and
the question of secession discussed year after
year. All the arguments of interest and pre
judice which ingenuity could devise were
sounded in the eais of the impetuous Southern
yonth. Candor could not deny nor art explain
away the backwardness of the South in the
arts and practical application of mechanics, in
commercial enterprise, in popular wealth and
improvement. But ull this was persistently
attributed to the fatal effects of the Federal
Union. The institution of slavery, of course,
was a blessing, aud could not for a moment bo
admitted to have anything to do with produ
cing this backwardness. On the contrary, it
was an element of sure prosperity, if it could
only bo extended westward and southward
over the warm cotton regions of Mexico and
Central America, and reinforced by now im
portations from Africa.
Tho whole blame of tho comparative failure
of the South to keep pace with the North in
the race of improvement was laid upon the anti
slavery sentiment, which retarded the growth
of slave labor in tho natural way of importa
tion, and prevented or embarrassed the acqui
sition of more. territory, and upon tho alleged
inequality of taxes produced by the tariff sys
tem. These derived strength only from the
Federal Union, which wus thus represented as
a huge upas tree, distilling deadly poison upon
Southern hopes and enterprise. The present
generation ot Southern men has grown to man
hood iu the midst of such teachings. Is it to
bo wondered at that many have imbibed erro
neous notions of political economy and Ameri
can policy, which nothing but experience will
We have not time to notice the other features
of General Quitman's life. He served a term
or so in Congress, and died in July, 1838. His
Congressional course was of the extremest
school, and his great speech 011 Southern rights,
as his biographer calls it, seems to us one of
the most cloudy and illogical attempts at frit
tering away the Constitution which even that
school has ever achieved. In it we may per
ceive, however, tho indications of that belief iu
Comontions, und acquiescence iu their over
riding tho Constitution nud laws of the State,
and the principle of seeking tho opinion of tho
people, which has so singularly characterized
all tho secession movements.
The sovereignty of the State, that mysterious
entity winch is always rampant in tho seces
sionist mind, and always ready to be offended,
exists, it would seem, not in tbe Constitution,
not iu tho Legislative or Executive depart
ment, not even in the.peoplo of tho State, nor
in all of these together; hut in a Convention, j
which may be deemed to compromise the sub
limated quintessence of democracy, and is par
amount to all the others. We may be par
doned for suspecting that the real secret of this
theory is, that the Conventions are moro easily
managed by designing politicians, being as
sembled on short notice, and in the midst of
popular excitement and passion. Such seems
to be tho teaching of history.
These volumes aro prepared in a creditable
manner, and published in attractive form.
They present the topics discussed from the ex
treme point of view, and as such are not with
out especial interest at thts time. It is evident
that all of General Quitman's connection with
the conspiracy to withdraw tho cotton States
from the Union is not hero unfolded. It is not
yet time to disclose the plot and its workings;
we can us jet only pick up hints here and
there, and judge from, manifest results.

DR. SCHENCK, the Lung Doctor. The Pro
RUP, the inventor of SCHENCK'S RESPIROME
TEH, the only instrument that can to a certainty
detect the slightest murmur of tho respiratory
This is of great importance to Dr. SCHENCK,
to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether
it is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dytpcptic Consumption, and whether it
is both lungs or only one that aro diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCHENCK to get examined that have been ex
amined by their family physician, who told them
that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a
closo examination with tho Respirometer, it is
often found that it Is an affection of the bron
chial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of
the liver and tone to the stomach, the sufferer is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough Is certain death to the pa
tlent. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation
of the blood; hemorrhage follows, and, iu fact,
stopping the action of the very organs that
caused the cough.
Liver complaints and Dyspepsia are the causes
of two-thirds of tbe cases of Consumpllon. Per
sons are at this time complaining with dull pain
In tbe side, bowels sometimes costive and some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoul
der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at
other times drowsy; everything that is eaten lies
heavy on the stomach ; acidity, belching up
wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time
in this way. Let them take a heavy cold, and,
before they get rid ot it, then another, then is
the time to know what to do, then is the time to
go to Dr. SCHENCK and get your lungs exam
ined, then is the timo to know what cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, und then
tho lungs, liver, und stomach, are all put into an
Inactive state, and, before tho patient is aware
of his situation, the lungs ure a mass of sores,
and death must soon follow.
pectorant which does not contain any opium,
nor anything calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by tho SEAWEED
TON 10, to Improve the tone of the stomach, and
restoro a healthy action of tbe digestive organs,
with the MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a
healthy action of tbe liter. When these are ta
ken together, or as indicated, they are sure to
bring the constitution back to a healthy state
when affected by any of the above diseases. Dr.
SCHENCK believes that too much cannot be said
in favor of the curative powers of the MAN
DRAKE PILLS. Their action Is peculiar, but
certain, in ull cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of the whole system,
and often passes under tho name of CONSUMP
TION, when that disease docs not exist at all, or
if It does, is readily curable by a proper atten
tion to restoring a healthy action of tbe stomach,
liver, and other functions, whose duty it Is to
eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the
animal organism.
Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life
sometimes several months, by keeping the bron
chial tubes free from the putrid matter which
impedes their functions, when the lungs are too
far gone to cure. There is no medicino that can
cure Consumption when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every
one would know their true condition before ta
king bis medicine.
Ho treats no diseases but those of tho Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, aud makes no charges tor
advice, or examining lungs iu the ordinary way,
or as physicians generally do ; but for a thorough
examination with the Rt spirometer he charges
three dollars, and wishes every one, rich or poor,
that has a Cough, Pain in the Side or Shoulder
blade, troubled with Cottiveness or Diarrhoea,
Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir
its, Restlessness nt Night, or any other disease
leading to Consumption, to call ou him as above
ana get nls advice.
Often, a twenty.fite cent box of SCHENCK'S
MANDRAKE PILLS will riruove the cause of
this great terror of the country Consumption.
