DAILY, 810 00 TRI WEEKLY, 5 00 WEEKLY, 2 00 i* - 1 ' ? STATE RIGHTS MEETINGS. From the Mabauu Commonwealth. Public Meeting.?The propriety ofu Public Meeting, without distinction of party, in Marion, on the 2d Sept, prox., to take into consideration the action of the late Southern Convention, and give an expression of sentiment in relntion to the important questions now agitating the public mind, is respectfully suggested by Many Citizens. Aug. 8, 1850. Agreeably to the above call, a very large number of the citizens of I'erry county assembled in the Court-house at Marion, on Monday the 2d inat. The meoting was called to order by the Hon. Johp 1*. Graham, on whose motion Gen. E. 1). King, and Hon. J. F. Cocke were appointed chairmen, and John G. Mnrkhnin and John , Moore requested to act us secretaries. The object of the meeting having been briefly stated by Gen. King, on motion a committee of ten was appointed to draft resolutions. The following gentlemen constituted the committee: to wit, Col. Henry C. Lea, lion. J. 1'. Graham, A. S. Toler, R. T. Jones, Samuel Jemisou, Luke Smith, Wm. Muckle, Dr. I). Adkin, R. C. Carlisle, Jos. Daniel, who alter deliberation reported as follows: 1. Resolved, That recognizing as we do in the proceedings of the Nashville Convention, and in tiie general tone and sentiments of the resolutions and address adopted by that body, a spirit of concession and compromise, on the one hand sufficiently tenacious of the honor of the South, and or the other duly regardful of the preservation of the Union, we do hereby approve and ratify the same. 2 Resolved, That the territories of the United States are the common property of the people of the United States, and as a corollary to this, the citizens of every State have the right to remove with their property into any of these territories, and there to be protected in ics use and enjoyment, by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Yet as a measure of conciliation, we are in favor of a division of the same, in accordance with Vnc platform of the Nashville Convention, to vtt,the line of 36. 3D, commonly niivnru ira njtj Missouri V/ompronuse line, wnn tifl expr.-sa recognition of the right of property in slnves south of that line. 3. Resolved, That the admission of California into the Union, with her present limits, and the clause in her constitution prohibiting the introduction of Southern institutions into any portion of the vast territory she pretends to claim, would be an intolerable insult and outrage to the Southern poople, a virtual adoption of the Wilniot l'roviso, and should be resisted by our members of Congress and citizens generally, by all legal and constitutional means. 4. Resolved, That we fully recognize the right of Texus to the extent of territory as defined in her law of limits in 1836, and admitted ut various times by the Federal Government; nevertheless, as a proposition to Texas is now pending, and likely to pass the Congress of the United States, in reference to this question, and the Legislature of Texas has been convened to consider the same subject, we think it right that the decision of the whole matter should be left where it most properly belongs?to the Shite of Texas and the Federal Government?asserting at the same time our opinion that in case the parties cannot agree, then it will become the duty of all the Southern States to sustain Texas in the maintenance of her dignity and ri rhts. 5. Resolved, That in view of the system of plundering the Southern people of their slave property, carried on by organized societies in the non-slavcbolding States, sustained by public sentiment in all, and favored by Legislative enactment in ninny of those States, it becomes the duty of the slnvehdlding States to adopt retaliatory measures against every State in which Jaws intended to embarrass the recovery of fugitive slaves exist, and wo respectfully recommend the consideration of this subject to pur State Legislature at its next meeting. 6. Resolved, Tliat we yield to no body of citizens in ardent attachment, to our Federal Union; but we love justice and the Constitution better than the Union. 7. Resolved, That we recommend to the patronage of our fellow citizens the Southern Press newspaper, recently established at. Wjmbinirtnn City, for the defence of Southern rights and opinions. The question being taken on the adoption of the resolutions, they were adopted unanimously. R. T. Goree, esq., offered the following resolutions which were adopted with but one dissenting voice. Resolved, That the thanks of this meeting be tendered to John G. Markhuni, esq., editor of the Alabama Commonwealth, for the able, zealous, and efficient manner in which lie has advocated the rights of the South. Resolved, That while some editors of both political parties have been hesitating nnd reasoning, lie has boldly taken the only honorable ground for the South and has fearlessly and ubl ' maintained his positions. Resolved, That in consideration of these facts, this meceting recommend the Alabama Commonwealth as worthy of the patronage of every truehearted Southerner,and especially of the people of Perry, without distinction of party. On motion of Col. Lea it was Resolved, That a copy of the proceedings of this meeting be sent to our Senators and Representatives in Congress, nnd that thanks of this meeting be, nnd they are hereby tendered to the i Hon. S. W. Harris, for the able and zealous manner in which he has defended the interests of the South during the present session of Congress. On motion it was Resolved, That the proceedings of til's meeting be signed by the officers, nnd published in the Alabama Commonwealth, and that the newspapers of this State, and the "Southern Press" be requested to copy the same. The meeting then adjourned. E. D. KING, ) . J. F. COCKE, (' Vhamnen. JoHsaMiRHUl,) John Mooke, $ From the Georgia Times. Pike Kkot Meeting.?The citizens of the sixth and tenth districts of Muscogee county, gnve a free barbecue on the 31st of August, the olject of which was to invite discussion on the great Southern questions now so deeply agitating the public mind. At a preliminary meeting the following officers were appointed to preside over the meeting: George Wiley, President, Ililiard J. Williams, Vice President, John D. Howell, Secretary. The President having called the meeting to order, a motion was made for the appointment of a committee of five citizens, whose duty it was to report to the meeting suitable resolutions for the action of the people. The following gentlemen were appointed : James M. Rcnfro, Chairman; John R. Sturges; J<-el Williams, Samuel Johnson, Henry J. Elbeck. This committee having retired, Major John II. Howard ' was introduced to the meeting and spoke for aii hour with great force on the encroachments of the North upon the South. His speech consisted entirely of argument, and was so conclusive that none of the opposition speeches touched it in its effects upon the people present. On the conclusion of Maj. Howard the committee on resolutions made their report and laid before the meeting the following resolutions: The continued agitation of the slavery auestion, in and out of Congress, by the people of the non-slaveholding States of this Union, has brought the country to a crisis in its political . condition, which demands of the people of the South especially a free and unequivocal expres-1 oion of their opinions. Therefore ' 1. Resolved. 1 hut the government of. the United States is a creature of the sovereign States of this Union?sovereign and equal when they formed it, and sovereign and equal ufter it was established; and that any act of the Con- : gross of the U. S. that tends directly or remotely | to destroy the right of each und any State to a community of interests in its benefits, is a violatton of the Constitution and should not be borne. 2. Resolved, that the pretentions of the North to exclude the South from an equal enjoyment of tho Territories acquired by the blood and treasure of all, is such an act of injustice and inequality as wo cannot and ought not, to submit to if we wish to maintain our self-respect as freemen. 3. Resolved, That an attempt by Congress to abolish slavery in the District or Columbia, and the slave trade between the States, would be a usurpation of power calling for the unqualified resistance of the slave States. 4. Resolved, That we cannot stand by and set) the army of the United States marched to Texas to maintain tho boundary which President Fillmore, without authority of law and in violation of express treaty provisions, has assumed, to prescribe an separating that State from New Mexico, and that tho people and State of (Georgia sliouId and will go to the rescue of Texas at the report of tho first federal gun. 6. Resolved, That the boundaries of Texas are those conquered by her prowess from Mexico, defined in her treaty at San Jacinto?defined by her constitution and laws?maintained by years of occupation and hard-fought field ack nowlcdged by foreign powers?tho cause of the war with Mexico, and re-defined and re-acknowledged by tho United States as well as o.xieo in tho treaty of (iuadnlnujie Hidalgo. (>. Resolved, That in regard to the territories, tho South must enter all on eyual terms with the North, or divide; tluit we are willing <?n Q? -to /.../ ,,,,// IV UIIUIV VII VV OW, I'Ml. CIHll ? "? ???? ** ? <?'" 7. Resolved, That aluauld California Ik; admitted with her present boundaries, the Governor of Georgia should instantly call a Convention of the people, and that we will stand to what that Convention proposes, "at all hazards and to the la t extremity." 8. ResoI.ved, That the course of llowell Cobb, of Georgia, meets with our unqualified censure; that it is derogatory of his duty, as a citizen and representative of a Southern State, and that our thanks are due to our senators and other representatives in Congress for every well stricken, blow for Southern rights, nnd that we have only to regret that they have not struck o/lener and harder. After the resolutions were rend, Nicholas Howard, esq., moved as a substitute a set of resolutions, which lie read and asked to he received. James Johnson, esq,, then took the stand, and spoke for an hour. This gentleman, eertninly, argued his side of the question with great ability, but the stumbling blocks he found in the way on rising to the great question of aggression on the South, were such that he resorted to sophistry nnd involved himself in somo contradictions. H. L. Defining, esq., followed Mr. Johnson in a speech, which, to judge from its effect upon the meeting, was a great effort. There was a silence?a straining of the eyes uml cars of the audience to catch every word, except when the speaker rose into eloquence upon the wrongs of his country, and then there would be an outburst of applause. Mr. Bonning continued for an hour, and was frequently cheered, particularly on bis taking his seat. A motion was then made to net on the resolutions, but objections being made by N. Howard, esq., the meeting adjourned to dinner. At three ocloek tho meeting organized again, .and Col. Alexander McDougald took the stand, and spoke for half an hour. This Rpeaker appeared to labor to prove that the whole movement had for it* object the breaking up of the Whig party; lie seldom touched the Southern question, and then very slightly. His speech contained more humor than *\it. Martin J. Crawford, esq., now took the stand, in conclusion. There was a sharp sparring between Mr. Crawford and Col. McDoumild as to 1he hitter's position with the.Whig party, and the manner lie, (Col. McD.) fold acted on certain political -question*. The questions of Mr. Crawford became so pointed that the Colonel objected to them, and the subject was dropped, Mr. Crawford proceeding with his remarks. Mr. C. left a good impression on the minds of the people of his ability, and they gave the evidence of it in their cheers on taking his seat. The question was called for by all parties ? The first question was on the reception of Mr. N. Howaril's resolutions, as a substitute for the original resolutions. A motion was made to lay the substitute on the table, and the yeas and nays were sounded, which resulted in a large majority of yeas. The minority claimed a division, which was agreed to, and a division took place, which showed but twelve persons in opposition to the original resolutions. The question was then put on the passage of the original resolutions, and tbev wore passed. The yeas deafening?the nays weak and far between. On motion, the meeting adjourned. GEORGE WILEY, President. John I). IIoweli., Secretary. brum the l,olumbus (.Miss.) Democrat. Pcrnuc Meeting.?At a general meeting of the friends of the Union, held at the Town I lull, in the town of Macon, on the 15th of August, 1850, to take into consideration the Compromise Bill, pending before the Senate of the United State , it was moved, and seconded by l)r. Lvles, that the meeting adjourn, so that the friends of the Compromise Bill and the adv ocates of the resolutions and report of the Nashville Convention might hold separate meetings if they thought proper : which motion was carried by a large majority. It was then announced that the friends of the Compromise Bill would assemble immediately at the Court House; whorupon a large mnjority of the citizens then present in the Town Hall, returned and assembled in the Court House ; of which meeting tire following is a report viz : On Monday the 6th instant, the friends of the Compromise and of moderate measures met in the Court House in this place at 2 o'clock, P. M.?The lion. John Hardiman and the Hon. O. C. Eiland were recpiested to act as chairmen and Messrs. Wm. M. Daniel and Robert S. Could appointed secretaries. On taking the chair Judge Hardiman congratulated the meeting that they were assembled as the friends of the Union, and invoked a spirit of moderation towards those who differed from the members of the meeting on the exciting topic of the day. A committee from a meeting assembled in the Town Hail was announced and through its chairman, I)r. Pant, made a proposition for a discussion of the questions of difference between the two meetings. On motion of Elisha Dismukcs, esq., a committee of three was appointed to confer with the committee of the other meeting and report arrangements for a discussion. Messrs. Dismukcs, Beasley, and Martin, constituted the committee. The following resolutions were offered by G. H. Foote esq. Whereas, the Union of there States and the Constitution, have secured to us prosperity, happiness and national wealth at home, and greatness and renown among the nations of the earth ; and whereas from present indications, serious apprehensions are indulged for the safety of the Union, in consequence of the fanaticism and injustice of some of our Northern brethren, and the rashness a'd indiscretion of many of our citizens of the slave holding States. Therefore, He it resulted, That we, a portion of the citij zens of Noxubee county, without distinction ot party, now assembled, hereby avow before the wo rid, our deep and abiding attachment to the Union as it is. That for tlw? perpetuation of its j ponce and glory undivided, we are willing to submit to any adjustment of the question arising out of the acquisition of territory from Mexico, which is honorable and just in its terms, and that w? appqpvn of the main features of the Compromise Bill before the Senate of the United States, and will cheerfully submit to it with such just amendments as may be adopted, should it become a Jaw, Resulted, That wc tender our heartfelt thanks to all the friends of the Cotnpronii.su hill in the d Senate of the United .States, for the zeal, energy h and firmness with which they have defended the t Union and hid them Cod speed in resisting nl! ii efforts at disunion, and in seeking to perpetuate t tliis glorious Republic as a monument of grati- v tilde to our ancestors, and the ark of safety to t millions of freemen yet unborn. P C. E. B. Strode, esq., seeoiided the resolu- i< tiniis supported them in a few [Mitriotie remarks, t after which, tlicy were unanimously adopted. p The following resolution was offered by C. s E. B. Strode, es<|., and ututniuu'Vsly adopted : <J Resolved, That wo entertain the highest re- o speet for the Hon. H. S. Footk, our senator in ti Congress, and believing him to he a patriot and f a statesman, will give no countenance to the s attacks recently made on hiui, and congratulate a ourselves that lie is our senator. v J)r. William J). Lyles offered the following r resoluti >11 which was also uiuininuttulyadopted: p Resolved, That we do not despair of the lie- g public while we have such men us Henry Clay, ? Jjewis Cuss, Daniel Webster, and H. Dickinson, p in the American Senate?men who are capable v of sinking section into country?who are capo- v Ide of feeling tii.it they are American citizens, tl not lucre factious partizans?who speak for no ri locality; kilt their whole country; and that they h arc entitled to receive the thanks of our whole v country for their manly and statesman-like de- 'l fence of the.compromises of the Constitution, s C. E. JJ. Strode, esq., offered the following r' resolution: 1 ltf.su/ieii, That we hereby form an association o fertile Constitution and Union us it is, and that we declare ourselves a permanent association to last during the present crisis, and that our chairmen and secretaries Ire declared elected duly as ofliccrs of this association. The resolution was unanimously adopted. Oil motion of Strode, Dr. W. D. Lyles was requested to address the meeting. After a spirited und eloquent address from that gentleman, it was moved that tho Planter's Advocate, he requested to publish tho proceedings of the meeting, and that the Jackson and Columlms papers especially,and papers throughout the State generally, he requested to copy; also, that a copy of the proceedings be forwarded to the Hon. If. S. Footu. The meeting tlien adjourned, to be assembled at any time by tlio committee to make arrangements for a discussion. JOHN IIARDIMAN,) ,,, . O.C.EILAND, Win. M.

The citizens of Effingham county, irrespective of party,assembled at Springfield on Saturday, 21st August, J850, for the purpose of taking into consideration the late action of the Congress of the Ur.ited States in relation to Southern interests, and the alarming crisis to which the country has been brought by attempted unconstitutional legislation against slavery, when Philip C. Pendleton and Thomas R. Hiries, esqrs., were appointed chairmen, and Lewis Myers and A. W. Daly, esqrs., appointed secretaries. Philip C. Pendleton, esq., one of the chairmen, in a clear and forcible address, explained the object of the meeting, and stated that the meeting was ready to hear any proposition which might be submitted. Whereupon, Capt. Wm. Jenkins submitted the following resolution which was put w by the citnir and adopted. Rssolved, That a committee of seven be an- j pointed to draft resolutions appropriate to the ou jects of the meeting. ; The chair appointed the following committee, J viz., Benjamin Gnunn, W illiam Jenkins, Dr. R. a Dawson, Cant. L. Gnann, Robert Mingledoof, [ Jolin C. Neidlinger and James Wilson. j The committee after a short absence, returned, n and by their chairman, Cupt. Wra. Jenkins, made (. the following report: (] The committee appointed to draft resolutions, , after having strictly examined the subjects before them, and the resolutions adopted by the late Mass 1 Meeting at Macon (staking out the 14th or 15th 1 resolutions as inapplicable to the objects of this s meeting) concur in the opinion, that under ex- v isting circumstances, they cannot be modified in ? the slightest degree, without comprising the rights , and honor of the Southern portion of the Con- i federacy, nnd beg leave to offer them for the ndoption of this meeting, us containing and expressing their feelings and sentiments. 1 The resolutions of the Mass Meeting lately held 1 at Macon, were consecutively read, with the re- t port of the committee, ana submitted by the s Chair, and were unanimously adopted. I Mr. J. W. Williams offered the following reso- ? lution, which was adopted: j Resolved, That a committee be appointed by | the Chair, to consist of three, who shall wait on ' the Hon. Levi S. D'Lyon, and Col. Joseph L. | Sengellton, then in the village, and request their attendance at the meeting. 1 The Chair appointed J. W. Williams, C. Morgan, and Joshua Seckinger, esqs., who performed the duty, and reported that the two gentlemen had aceptcd the invitation and would uttend the j meeting. After the adoption of the report of the com- l miltce of seven and the rending; of the resolutions | adopted by lite mass meeting at Macon, Colonel , Singleton, was called 011 by the meeting to address ] litem, and responded to the call in a speech of an ( hour, which breathed the true Southern spirit, advocated with manly eloquence the much abused and injured South, and sustained the resolutions of the Macon meeting as the ultimntum of the ' South. Col. Singleton look his seat amidst the cheers and applause of the meeting. I Judge D'Lyon writ then called for, and informed by the Chair, that it was the desire of the meeting , that he should address them, when he responded ! in a speech of considerable length, occupying an ' hour, and left unon the minds of his hearers an i.v> ' pression, that the South was in imminent peril, to avert which prompt and united action was neces- ! sary. The address of Judge D'Lyon was an able 1 effort, and alto wed that he possessed a perfect ' knowledge of the subject. H. E. Cassidy, esq., being next called upon, rose, and in a neat and eloquent address, sustained the resolutions, and concurred in the sentiments , expressed by the previous speakers. The following resolutions were then offered by Captain Wm. Jenkins and adopted. Resolved, That, as the intention of the meeting this day was merely preliminary to a mass meeting of the county, that a meeting of all the citizens ' of the county irrespective of party, be called at Springfield, on the 21st day or September next, and that-a. committee of three be appointed by the ; Chair, to correspond with speakers in different ] parts of the State, and request their attendance on e occasion. 1 Resolved, That these proceedings be published j in all the gazettes of the cities of Savannah and Augusta, and that the several editors are respect runy rcqursitru iu lumjiiy wall iiiin i t'siMiiuuii.

"There are two classes of agitators now at work in the United States, who may be consid- , ered rivals for the prize of general detestation. 1 They nrc the Abolitionists of the North and the Abolitionists of the South.?Staunton S]xxta- : /or." i There is a class at the South far more detestable than both of these together, of which the Spectator is a worthy member. They are the Sulrmixsionintn?a tame, craven-hearted set of unprincipled politicians, who, under the hypocritical pretext of love to the Union, are aiding ' and abetting the Northern Abolitionists in their > ruthless crusade against the rights of the Mouth, I and the sanctity of tho Constitution. "It is dif- < ficult to determine which of these parties"?the , principals or their accessories?"deserve the | I highest honors for their zeal and proficiency in I wickedness;" but the palm of infarnv, we think, 1 should bo awarded to Uie latter?the SubntissiottitU of tho South?who add hypKrisy and < treastm to their native meanness.?Lynchburg i Rpjmblican.

Mr. O'Reilly, of Buffalo, J 3 Bishop of Hartford. j Tint Prowect..?The great question of tlie ay seems to be,'as to the fate of the several bills efore tlie House, which lately composed the domic t omnibus hill of the Senate. The Wusbugton Union urges the necessity of the passage 0 quiet the dangerous excitement which perades the country, while tlie lnlelligKtv.tr sings he same song to a dilierciit tune. This latter mper declares that there is no difference of opin-; an oil this subject. Tiiat from ull quarters of lie coiMitrv, without a dissenting voice, the leople demand the adoption of these heartless cliemes of plunder. Divested even of the name '('compromise, and from the begtumng, destitute f any principle entitling them t:> that appelhiion, they now stand in their nude and bald dearmity, as so many breakers in the way of tlie hip of state. The friends of the difl'erent metures, dilfering only in the degree of affection r'liieh tliey have and bear for their several f'avoites, and well knowing ho.v little trust is to be laced in the engagements of men who are enaged in a common system of plunder, cannot gree among themselves as to which shall have recedenoc. This is the first difficulty in the ray of the bills, but there is little doubt that it rill be overcome. There is another still more hreatening aspect, though sneered at by the alml party organs, above named. NVe allude | i) the opposition of the Southern members, to ( rbieh with singular unanimity,they stand pledged f nd committed before the country, by every eontitutional mode of resistance, jt they agree to rsist these hills in every way, they cannot pass, lut, it may he, that, confident that the measures an only be delayed l?y their opposition, they oay give way, and suffer the wickedness to lie icrpetrnted, which they cannot finally prevent. Vc confess there is little to he gained by delay 1 l<vivt. iii our ruiinion. if the South is not nre-! tared now to redress her wiongs, wo cannot hoc hut she ever will he ; and we believe that the lassuge of tlieSe hills will present as perfectly s possible, the points tit issue between its. Of nurse, we do not mean to indicate any objection o the bill fbr providing a territorial government o Utah, which lies to the North of our ultimauui of thirty six and a half, north latitude. The Texas and the California billsarc the real pirates, nd to those our attention is directed. The ormer measure meets with lit! lo favor from the dtras of the North, who have little idea of payng Texas $10,000,000 for that which may be i.id for the taking jis they suppose. In the uean time, there is every indication, that Texas vill deprive them of any uneasiness in that |uarter by refusing to take the bril e as annlterintive to the sword. From indications of popuar sentiment in Texas, there is every reason to >el:cve that she will put down the insurrectiolaiy govei uineut of Anita Fe, hy her own strong irm, and thus put Mr. Fillmore's boast to the est. Our own opinion is, when the crisis comes 11 earnest, this warlike individual will buck. The Compromise Bill, es. The Constitution.?The Compromise Bill has been defeatid. It ought to have been defeated because it vas unconstitutional. But its defeat was effectid by the meeting of two extremes. The Aboitionists opposed it because it did not shear the south of quite enough rights, while the Southern neinbers opposed it because it was a violation if the Constitution. That it was a violation of he Constitution can be clearly elucidated. That nstrument is a written contract of Union between lovereign states, each of which is a voluntary larty to the terms and conditions therein conained. It recognizes slavery as an institution if property, and guarantees protection in its enoyment, any where in the Union. It thus places ilaves upon the same footing with horses. No lower is granted to Congress to regulate proicrty in horses, becauso it would be an unjust nd despotic encroachment upon the private ights of the people, those rights that they did lot surrender when they became parties to the Constitution. For the very same reason no ? i /-i jui.. lower IS yiVOIl to l?U KiiC'i iiiuvmio nun lie private property in slaves. Does any one uppose that tlie sovereign states of this Union vonld have become parties to an instrument that granted to Congress such an absolute and tyranlieal power ? The idea is unworthy of respect. Wo defy the acumen of the most ultra nholitiolist to point to a clause in that instrument, vii icli either expressly or implied.y, positively or legativcly,directly or remotely gives to Congress he least shadow of a right to interfere with the object of slavery, in any manner, shape or form. ?ut would the passage of the Compromise miount to congressional interference? Clearly, t proposes to admit California with a clause in ler constitution prohibiting slavery forever.? L'hen by congressional interference the YVilinot Proviso would he imposed, deceitfully imposed ipoii the South. It. proposes to cut off a slice ;>f the territory of Texas and append it to New Mexico, in order to equalize slavery and Free3/xilium Wlni! ? d ;i wnvorr?i<m fur the base purpose of balancing' sla cry, which is constitutional, with Free-soil ism, which is more than unconstitutional. Texas is as sovereign as [his Fe leral Government, and no power that the mn shines upon has a right to dismember her. It proposes, also, to abolish the slave trade in :he District of Columbia. Suppose it were to ibolisli tbc trallic in horses in the District of L-'olumbia, is any man in the nation,no much of i fool or a knave as to defend that net. Would not the people rise up in mass, shoulder their muskets, march to the capitol, gibbet the tyrants, and in their rage demolish every vestige of a government which had become a hot bed of despotism Yet can any man prove a distinction, :onstiluliorialltj, between the ayts We place thorn both upon the same ground?.we believe such to be the true Southern doctrine, and that the people ought to send no man to Congress, who does not view the subject in that light.? Choctaw Co. (Ala.) Re port or. "Non-intervention."?.Since the doctrine of non-intervention, which was once i; shield to protect, has been converted into a sword with which to assail the South, it has acquired wondrous charms. Horace Grcely thinks it, as practised by the Administration, while much loss dangerous to the Union, scarcely less efficacious for Northern purposes, than the Wilmot Proviso. lie seems to have abandoned the latter and espoused the former. As carried out In the form of the Executive Proviso, it excludes slavery from California; as embodied in the Clay Compromise, with the aid of the Mexican law, it excludes it from all the other Territories!? What moro oan any Frec-soiler ask ? The Administration succeeds in its purpose of bringing into being, a State Government in prrluAinxr slavery! ar.d bv its airent. Butler King, induces that Government to cncloso the whole Territory in that Free-soil State:?and this is " non-intervention!" Congress buys from n slave State 130,000 square miles of her Territory, to he eonvertod Into Free-soil: and this non-intervention! The same mighty authority abolishes the slave trade in the District of Columbia, preparatory to its abolition between the Slates; and this too is 11011 intervention! Well may the outraged, indignant and insulted South exclaim, with the charge of a single word: "Be these juggling Jittuls no more believed That nailer with us in a double sense, That Keep the word of promise to the ear, And break it to the hope." County Delegates to the Nashville Convention. Wo see that several counties in this State have appointed Delegates to this Convention. John Erwin, of Greene, in a let ter recently written on the subject, says : ' In some quarters of the State they are appointing county Delegates, which, 1 hesitate not to say, is a most injurious course. There should DC none but State and District Delegates." In the conclusion of the address of the Nashville Convention, the following language is isod: "We recommend to you, and we exhort you, o send Delegates from .every county and Disrict in the Southern States lo meet us when ve again assemble." We therefore think that Delegntes should be ent from every county in the State.?Kufaulu( democrat. From the Norfolk (Fa.)Pilot. If Southern representatives had stood firm in maintaining the rights and interests and honor of their co mutuants,this whole question could easilv have been aettled upon ju*t and eaual terma. It ia well known that Lhe North did not mean to leave the question unsettled. But their policy waa to settle it upon terms which ahould secure to themselves the largest gains of power, and leave to the South the least possible remains of rights. This must be evident to every man who has given any attention to the proceedings of Congress upon this subject during the present session. Unfortunately for the country, they have found too many from the North, ready toco-operute with them. But, whilst we cannot hut deplore the defection of a portion of the Southern representatives, yet we rejoice that another portion have stood up manfully contending for the recognition of our rights, and the preservation of our interests. Though but a feeble band in point of numbers, yet, clothed in the panoply of truth and justice, they have, for more than eight months, withstood the opposing host, und, by their indomitable firmness, compelled the proud majority to abate their unjust demands. To their unshrinking resistance do we owe the repudiation of the Wilmot Proviso, to aominr, over which votes of praise are daily sounded by the Washington Union, and other kindred presses.? To their untiring efforts are we indebted for whatever is valuable in the fugitive slave bill, and to their unyielding firmness may we also ascribe the saving of more than twenty thousand square miles of Texan territory from the tender mercies of free OUHUilll. But yet these noble spirits are denounced as extremists, ultras, disunionists and other opprobrious epithets, heaped upon them for the purpose of breaking down their influence, and that too, by southern men. But these efforts will signally fail. The great body of the southern people have too much intelligence not to perceive who have defended and who have abandoned the high and sacred trusts committed to their charge, and they have too nice a sense of justice not award to each a merrited condemnation or approval, according as their acts may justify. A Cause or Southern Pusillanimity.?The South is celebrated far and wide, for the hospitality, generosity and kindness of its citizens. Northern men have availed themselves of this sectional characteristic to come and ' pitch their tents" amongst us, and have found homes, reputations and fortunes. These men are the first to intrude themselves upon public attention, and to volunteer their distinguished services in high places. They find commanding, lucrative and honorable positions in society and State, such as teachers in our schools, lawyers, doctors, editors and politicians; and no sooner is this done, than they attempt and often succeed in giving tone, shape and character to public sentiment among us. Their opinions are in accordance with first impressions, and these first impressions are in opposition to the morality and political policy of African servitude. Hence in all questions, in which our peculiar domestic institutions are concerned, they are not for us, but against us, and often take sides overtly or covertly. Thus a contraband public sentiment is imported in the South, which, in all its elements, is directly adverse to our interests. From their personal weight of character, their daily and close associations with us, they gradually instill the poison which weukens and enervates the Southern mind. Then follows as a rempte, but certain consequence, futal security, indifference to our rights, pusillunimity, submission. Now, that we can have the past to look back upon, wbq cannot trace the tame submission inclinations which are by no means rare now-a-days, in the South, to misplaced generosity in the first place, and then to the attentive andience which we have given to Northern teachers of politiculnnd moral principle. It is not our desire to give offence to a single human being, by these remarks ; nor would we be understood as classing all Northern ipen alike in this respect. But the critical condition of the South, requires that weshould spea't out, and nothing hereafter shall prevent us fVom saying boldly wlint we think. Upon the vital subject of Southern rights, the South should cease to give ear to Yankee teachers, whether they reside in or out of the State. Tl.... .1 .......... ...... x ucy arc utiiigciuun gi/unocuuro, tt c iiiuai iciy wholly up on ourselves in (his trying emergency. These Northern men have already contributed in no small measure, to bring the South to the very brink of the yawning chasm. Will they be permitted to lure us into the gulf below? The "IYootltn llorst" has already entered the city of our strength. Let us prevent it from disgorging its countless number of armed foes. Southern men, slaveholders and the friends of slaveholders beware how you follow the lead of Northern men! "Tims? Danaos, el donaftrentes."?Oxford (Miss.) Organizer. " The Organizer is mistaken in supposing that we objected to that paper publishing an account of what is called a " Union meeting." But we did and do still object to the attempt maile by that paper, to create capital for a crusade against the Union, und in favor of the Nashville Convention." The above is taken fVom the Whig Star of Thursday last. The chaige that we have attempted to " create capitul for a crusade against the Union," is grossly and absolutely false. This is the mildest language that we can employ in its denunciation. Our position is well known to our readers, and could not have been unknown t? the editor of the Star, when he wrote down the libel upon us. We are determined for the future, that such slander shall not escape us. We have no concealment, and if this charge were true, we should not hesitate to acknowledge it. We write what we think, and think what we write, Our opinions are our own property, and we expect to entertain them without duress, and to speak them without fear, as long as we live. The columns of the Organizer will famish the best refutation of the Star's libel. We have been, and still are a consistent, and fast friend to the Union. The Constitutional Union?the Union in which slavery is recognized, and the equality of the States guar BTiiecu; uui m me same niiir, we are jusi as inimical to that effigy and mockery of a Union, in which the abolition of slavery is recognized as a dogma, and the equality and nationality of the States denied. And if the time should ever come, when we nre compelled to select between domestic slavery 011 the one hand, and the Free-soil Union, on the other, we shall not hesitate to make and avow our choice, and that choice will look to theprotection of the South, her properly and her people. We have a calculating love of the Union. We love it for what it is worth without the idolatry of the craven subiniRsionists?and when it censes to be what it was designed to be?the Union of liberty, equality, fraternity, then we may be written down a disunionist. That time may he in a twelvemonth. It may be, we could wish it would be, never. Until then it is injustice without mensure, assumption, without parallel, nnd falsehood without remorse, to call us an enemy to the Union. ?Oxford (Mi.) Organizer.

We regret that our engagements will not justify us in giving a somewhat detailed account of the meetings referred to. The several speakers on both occasions took bold and elevated ground on the subject of State Rights and the duty of the South to maintain them at all hazards, There was no advocacy of a weak and enterprizing policy on this subject. Our rights under the Constitution were faithftilly and eloquently defended, and those passages in which the speakers adverted to the attempted degradation of the South in the Clay Compromice, and counselled resistance and de. nounced submission, the hearty applause of the true people, the feee-hearted, liberty-loving, tyranny-despising yeomanry, showed their hearts lobe in the right place, on the side of the South, nnd that come weal or woe, union or disunion, they "know their rights and will dare "maintain."?

Tbe PRESIDING OFFICER laid before the Senate u petition from the embryo Slate of New Mexico, brought here by Col.

Mr. SEWARD moved that tlie memorial be printed, and referred to the Committee on Territories. After debate by Messr*. Yulek and Dickinson ugainst the reference, the motion to refer was laid upon the table. CALIFORNIA BILLS. Mr. FREMONT, pursuant to notice, introduced the following bills: A bill to provide for opening a road actons the Sierra Nevada, on the line -of the Rio de Ion Americanos and Carson's river, and the pass at their head, us the commencement of opening a common travelling road between the present wentern settlement* of Utah and the State of California.

A bill to relinquish certain public grounds in San Francisco to said city. A bill providing for a recorder of land titles in California. All of which were read and referred The bill for the relief of the American Colonization Society, indemnifying them for the subsisting some five hundred negroes discharged among them from the slave-ship Pons, captured by an American cruizer.wus read a third lime and passed. slave tu.\uk in this district. The bill to abolish the Slave trade in this District, was, on motion of Mr. CLAY resumed, as the special order of the dny. The question was upon the amendment of Mr. SEWARD, providing for the abolition completely of slnvery in this District. When the Senate adjourned yesterday, it was upon an unfinished debate on the subject of the Cublic regulations of Charleston, Savannah, Moile and New Orleans, with respect to free colored persons entering said ports on board Northern ships, and their detention in custody. On the resumption of the bill this morning, Mr. Soule took occasion to explain and vindicate the police regulations of the city of N. Orleans with respect to free persons of color entering said port, as cooks, stewards, &c.,on board ship or steamers from Northern States, and exhibited that these regulations did not involve those enormities of confinement in jail, as would appear to be the practice from the remarks of the senator from Massachusetts, (Mr. Winthrop.) Mr. S. maintained also the right of the Southern States to protect themselves against the incursions of free negroes ; and that the senator from Massachusetts could not claim, under the Constitution, that the free negroes of Massachusetts should be entitled to the same privileges in Louisiana as her white citizens, although such negroes may be admitted to these privileges in Massachusetts. Mr. BERRIEN, made a similar explanation and vindication of the police regulations ofSavan" ? -5 -* ^ i- 0 . l _ nan, snowing mat ueorgia was exempt irum inc charges brough into the Senate yesterday against Southern sen ports by the Senator from Massachusetts, [Mr. Winthrop] in the letter which he read from a certain sea captain of said Slate. And with regard to that letter, although not specifically endorsed by him, that letter, in met, had gone out to the country with the weight and character of the authority of a senator of the United States, notwithstanding the statements in that letter had not been sustained by a particle of valid testimony. This very interesting and animated debate, upon this incidental subject, of which a report will be given hereafter, was continued by Messrs. Winthrop, Berrien, Ewinc, Butler, John Davis, Douglas, Soulk, and Dickinson, for a couple of hours, when the question was taken upon Mr. Seward's amendment for the total abolition of slavery in this District, and rejected: as follows. Aves.?Messrs. Chase, Dodge, of Wisconsin, IIai.e, Seward, and Upham.?5. Noes.?45. And the bill was reported as from Committee of the Whole to the Senate, with several amendments, providing for certain polico regulations with respect to free negroes, and imposing certain penalities upon kidnappers of slaves from this District. Mr. CLAY hoped these amendments would be stricken from the hill. He was gratified to hear of the passage of the fugitive bill by the House, which left only this mensure of the whole series of the general adjustment to be settled. As for slavery, it was gradually dying out in this District;? but the existence of the slave trade within this Capital was very odious to theJNorlh. It was expedient to abolish it. But as the amendments to the bill would endanger its success, lie hoped they would be disagreed to, so that the simple abolition of the slave trade might be provided for. deficiency dm.i.. On motion of Mr. Dickinson, the slave trade bill was laid aside temporarily, and the deficiency bill from the House, providing for the pay and mileage of the late delegates from the territories, and of the senators and members from California, and the Oregon delegate, and making $50,000 appropriation for books, &.c. On motion of Mr. Dickinson, the $50,000 for books for the House was stricken out, and the item was turned over to their contingent fund. Mr. BENTON moved that the mileage of the Oregon delegate and the California members of both Houses, be charged according to the most usually travelled route within the United States; and spoke of the route by the South Pass as the great inland travelling route to Oregon and California. Fiftythousand emigrants had gone out this year by this South Pass route. Mr. GWIN opposed the amendment, and asked his colleague to say what was the time required to travel tlie South Pass route, Mr. FREMONT replied that the California settlements might be reached from the Western frontiers of Missouri in forty days. It would be easy to travel out with the annual emigrations; and the members might return by the same route with a sufficient escort and at sufficient expense. Mr f4WIN rnnlpnilpfl flint tho nnlv trnv#>)?#?fl route to and fro, between the Atlantic roast and California, was the Isthmus route, outside of the United States, and that it was unjust to make a discrimination against the members from Cnli-1 fornia. Mr. ATCHISON thought the amendment proper enough. No member was authorized to charge for a route outside ofthe United States. Mr. GWYN insisted that thia amendment would be an unjust discrimination?that the mail route to California was by the Isthmus, and that from the travelling expenses and the dangers of the sickly climate of Pannma, (which nearly cost his collengue his life, besides $8,000 expenses for his journey in, with his.small family,) the California members were entitled to the mileage of this route which they were compelled to travel. Messrs. PRATT, RUSK, CLAY, HAMLIN, DQDGE, of Iowa, and GWYN, continued the debate, when the amendment of Mr. Benton limiting the mileage of the California members to the route by the South Pass, was agreed to. Mr. HAMLIN moved to amend so as to limit the future purchase of books, by either House, to a law of Congress. Rejected, 20 to 25. Mr. DODGE, of Iowa, moved to strike out the item of $,50,000, turned over to the contigent fttnd of the House for the purchase of books. Theainendment was debated by Messrs. Dodoe, Underwood, Badger, Dickinson, Douglass, j _.i _?.i .uk ... or aiiti ouicrs, iiuu mcii tojrvicv, i?f Mr. DOUGLAS moved to amend the hill by providing that the California members of both Houses shall he paid their per diem for this session, commencing from the day when the Consti- i tution of California was officially communicated to Congress, Agreed to. And the bill was passed. Mr. GW1N gave notice of several bills be should introduce for the establishment of lighthouses and harbors, and for the refunding of certain revenues to the State of California. And the Senate went into Executive session. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Thursday, September 19, ISfiO. Mr. McCLERNAND, of Illinois, by consent, presented a memorial of Miss D. L. Dix, in behalf of the deaf mutes and the blind in the United Slates, which was referred to the Committee on Public Lands. Mr. THOMPSON, of Pennsylvania, stated 1 that it was desirable that the Seriate bill entitled I an act to amend the several acts establishing District Courts of the United States in Florida, and to provide for writs of error and appeals from said courts, should be amended in some particulars, he therefore moved that the Committee of the Whole be discharged from the consideration of the said bill, arid tnat it be referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. Agreed to. Mr. STANTON, of Tennessee, asked consent K F "* to have the Committee of the Whole discharged from the fhrther consideration of the bill providing for the establishment of a line of war steamers to the coast of Africa for the suppression of the slave trade, and the protection of commerce and colonization, and have it recommitted to the Committee on Naval Affaire, Objected to. Mr. THOMPSON, of Mississippi, called for the regular order of business. Ths SPEAKER stated that first in the regular order of business, was the consideration m the reports from the select committee, on the KWING INVESTIGATION. Mr. M1LLSON, of Virginia, having the floor on the question, spoke an hour in reference to it. He objected to the range which the committee had allowed themselves in undertaking the investigation of subjects not committfd to them. Their report repudiated the allowance of Virginia military commutation claims, the puymenl of which, he maintained was just, legal, and honorable. The committee had over-stepped the limits of their duty in assuming to look into those claims, and denied the law in denying them. He concurred, however, with the committee, in pronouncing the payment of the Barron claim as unauthorized by law, although the recipients of that payment were gentlemen of high character in his own State. A A? lUlf I ?nw l,?,l /.nnol.wlo,! AHCI Lul miAJXJUVfil WHVtu?vM, ? ??. |/?V vioiiH qeestion was ordered. Mr. RICHARDSON, of Illinois, also, as chairman of the committee, being entitled to make the closing speech on his report, was assigned the iloor, but before proceeding, the morning hour having expired, and the House proceeded to the business on the Speaker's table. Senate bill for repairing and continuing an old military road in the State of Arkansas, was read twice, when Mr. JOHNSON, of Arkansas, explained the necessity of pussing the bill and hoped that it would now be put on its passage, lie referred to the gentleman from Kentucky, [Mr. Marsuall,] who, he said, (tassed the road in a military expedition to Mexico during the late war, as one familiar with its condition. Mr. MARSHALL made a statement of its condition and the expediency of repairing it, and Mr. STANTON, of Tennessee, also advocated its passage^ Mr. WHljTE, of New York, moved that the bill be referred to the Committee on Public Lnnds, and demanded the previous question, which was ordered and the bill was referred.

Senate bill entitled, an act to extend the port of New Orleans, was rend twice, and, on motion of Mr. ua ."stiiii., ot l,ouisiuiiu, mere being n<> objection, the bill was ordered to a third reading and passed.

Senate bill amendatory of the act of 1793 providing for a more effectual execution of the constitutional requisition which requires fugitives front service or labor, escaping from one State into another, to be delivered up, was taken up, read twice, when Mr. THOMPSON, of Pennsylvania, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, obtained the floor and proceeded to explain briefly the provisions of the Dill. Having done that,* he remarked that he was aware that ordinarily all bills should be referred to some Committee. It was true the bill had not been printed by the House, but it had been for some time before the Senate, and had there been fully debated, and its provisions, he presumed, were wellunderstood. They were in conformity with the Constitution which was binding upon all. He therefore moved the previous question. Much opposition was made to the motion, which was indicated by requests to withdraw it? demands for tellers, <fce., but the House seconded it, and the main question was ordered to be put. Mr. STEVENS, of Pennsylvania, moved to lay the bill on the table. Lost.?Ayes 66, nays 113. The question then recurring on ordering the bill to a third reading, it was agreed to. Ayes 105, nays 73.
