D THlE PItESI DENT ELECT. Abraham Lincoln is Presidentelect of the United SRates. All the Northern States, with the excep- 1 lion of gallant and glorious New Jersey, have hel roted for him, and in most of them his majorities ma are very great. These majorities are more signifi rant and suggestive than anything else-more so me than the election itself-for they unmistakably in- ad. dicate the hatred to the South which animates and controls the masses of the numerically strongest Tur ection of the Confederacy. In emergencies of this kind it is the height of Ge folly for men to strive to shut their eyes and stop I their ears against stubborn facts. Especially is sae this proposition true in regard to the people of the tha threatened section. They, of all others, should lok at the facts as they are, and should prepare b themselves accordingly to meet whatever circum. nal stances it is legitimately inferrable the future may ing have in store for them. They must, if they would sta pluck the flower of safety from the nettle of dan- in ger, neither be blind nor deaf nor inert. They are mast boldly, but deliberately, calmly and ju- ar dicioasly, meet whatever questions or dangers Northern abolition sectionalism may force upon Lie them-and to meet them as they should be met, vio the sooner the proper steps are taken the better for all the parties to the controversy which seems era to be unavoidable and imminent. In a crisis like this there should be neither hesi tation, vacillation or faltering. We should either tir submit quietly to Abolition domination, and do no- is r thing, or we should go to work with resolution, par rudeonce and inflexible determination. If we are tot going to submit, let us do so without any fuss or stil excitement. If we are going to fight, let us pre pare for the conflict while we have time, without art ostentation or parade, and then go into the battle del determined to preserve our liberties or perish in sou the attempt. If we are going to act at all, let us act forthwith ; but, in tile name of common pro- viol rriety, let us have as little talk as possible, no of matter which alternative is adopted. Since the election of Lincoln most of the leading Northern Abolition papers have essayed the her- Re nlcean task of reconciling the Southern people to his on Presidential rule. Having succeeded to their heart's of content in elecling him--having villified and ma- Soc ligned the South throrgh a long canvass, without I measure or excuse--they now tell us that Mr. Lin coln is a very good man, a very amiable man; that he is riot at all violent in his prejudices or partial- br ties: that, on the contrary, he is a moderate, Pa lridly-tempered, conservative man, and if we will ve ouly submit to ris administration for a time, we will ascertain that he will make one of the best S. 'residents the South or the country ever had! ' Will you walk( into my parlor said the spider to the fly." Op Now, as it is generally believed most things are or possible, Mr. Lincoln may be all that these Aboli tion journals say he is. But, we do not believe a it word they say. We are clearly convinced that they are telling falsehoods to deceive the people tal of the South, in order to carry out their own sel- no fish and unpairiotic P, rposes the meor easily. They know that, althlough Lincoln is elected to the Presidency, he is not yet President of the United co States, and they are shrewd enough to know that for grave doubts exist whether he ever will be. The chances are that he will not, unless the South is quieted ; and if any such catastrophe happens, all Vi their past labors and all their expected plunders o0 and spoliations will elude their rapacious grasp. Hence the indecent and hypocritical haste with Vi which they are attempting to conciliate the South- gr ern people. We propose to measure Mr. Lincoln by his own standard. None of his friends in this or any other So atitude can object to such measurement. Mr. Lin- Pr coin is quite an old man, and we shall quote noth ing against him which can be charged to thile indis- So cretions of youth. 20 Some years ago the free negroes of Ohio pre sented Gov. Chase with a silver pitcher as a token of their affection for him. The ceremony of pie sentation took place in Cincinnati, and Abraham gc Lincoln was present. Mr. Lincoln was called wi upon, and made a spcech. In that speech he fre said, I embrace with pleasure this opportunity of de claring sny disalpprobation of that clause of the Constitution which denies to a portion of the col ared peopl e the right of suttrage. to True rdemoeracy makes no inquiry about the olor of tire skin, or place of nativity, or any other circumstance or condition. Iregard. therefore,the e.clursion of the colored people, as a body, from a the elective francllise, as incompatible with true lo1 democratic principles. Mr. Lincoln made a speech at Peoria, Illinois, on the 16th of October, 1851. Here is an extract hb from that speech: ler That no man is good enough to govern another sa man ithront the ollther's consent. I say this is the St leading principle--the SHEET-ANCHOR of Amer iconr lhlpublicariesn. * * t * The ataster not only governs the di sntae without Iis consent, but he governs him by a Cr set of rules altogether different from those which lie prescribes for himself. Allow all the governed an EQUAL VOICE IN TIIE GOVERNMENT, and bh that and that only, is self-government. lowe,'ili arIif or Liucoln, pa 279. to On the 1Ith of June, 1858, Mr. Lincoln delivered Ti a set speech at Springfield, Illinois. Here is a paragraph from that speech : We are now far on tie fifth year since a policy was initiated, witr the avowed object and confident promise of putting an end to slavery agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation Pr has not only not ceased, but ras constantly aug. th mented. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. Ahouse divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this Government cannot endure permanently half slave and Ialf free. I do not expect the IUnion to be dis solved; I dr not expsect tihe hiouse to fall ; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become e all one thingor all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest tihe furter spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the be lief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, ar or its advocates will push it forward until it shallt become alike lawful in all tihe States,old as well as new, Northi as well as South. Still later, in a speech at Chicago, July 10,1858, s we find Mr. Lincoln promulgating sentiments like } these : If I were in Congress, and a vote should comte up on a question whether slavery should he prohibited in a new Territory, in spite of thie Dred Scott de cision, I would vote that it should. N All the foregoing extracts prove Mr. Lincoln to he a thororgi radical Abolitionist, without excep tion or qualification ; and in the last one re declared his willingness to vioatrIe is oath were hie in Con gress, sooner than tllow slavery to roist in a Terri tory. If lie was to anxious to perjore bimself as a Congressman, it is borely tonsible lie will be par ticrlarly aClrnpilIorro about iris oath to Pereidient. We have pre-cited the abore extracts, not with a view of stirmnlatiag excitement, hut tor thie general information. We wisir our people to he fully posted, eo trat ahen they art, they may act advisedly, and swith frll knohrleidge of every im tortant matter pertrirnig to the past which has anybeariag upon tsie present.

The author informs us, through his preface, that this work was written withoflt a view to publication. We have always deemed it very dangerous to publish books under such circumstances, especially if a writer ex pects much faime from his laboirs. After reading a few pages of " Will he Find Her," we see no rea son to change our opinion in this matter. DOMESTIC IN'ELLIGIENCE. Movements of Georgia. ArcScTA, GA., Nov. 10.-Meetings are being held throughout the State of Georgia for the for mation of minute corps. A meeting is called for to-night at which decisive measures for the secession of Georgia will be adopted. A Military State Convention is to be held on Tuesday next at Milledgeville. A delegation of South Carolinians is visiting teorgia. It is reliably reported that several hundred thou sand men are already enrolled at the South, and that the enrollments are still in progress. Agitation in New York. NEW YORg, Nov. 10.-Business Is perfectly stag nant. News from the South is of the most alarm ing nature. The working classes are thrown in a state of agitation, which the Tribune and Times try in vain to suppress. Sonthern bank bills on Europe are scarcely negotiable. Southern State stocks are on the decline. The organs of the Union party are pressing upon Lincoln to issue a proclamation promising not to violate the interests of the South. Gold shipments to the South, to purchase North ern exchange, are increasing. Great Excitement at Charleston. CHARLESTos, Nov. 10.--Intense excitement con inues to prevail throughout the city. Everybody is making preparations to resist all attempts on the part of the North to encroach upon the consti tutional rights of the South. The Palmetto flag is still being hoisted. A large crowd assembled and marched to the arsenal with the intention of removing the arms deposited there to Fort Moultrie, but they were un successful in their attempt. The excitement is growing more intense and re sistance meetings are to be held in different parts of the State. Action of the South Carolina Legislature. COLUMBIA, Nov. 9.-The Committee on Federal Relations has reported- bill calling a convention on the second Monday of January for the purpose of taking measures against the dangers incident to South Carolina's position at the present moment.

S. Senate. FromWashington. Wasms(oroox, Nov. 10.-In official quarters no apprehension exists that further seizures of forts or public property will take place in the South. The report set afloat that President Buchanan intends issuing a proclamation is erroneous. The members of the Cabinet held a meeting to take into consideration the events in the South, but no formal action was taken. Virginia Gone for Breckinridge.

A great crowd of men, composed of all the late parties, jammed Armory Hall on Saturday night: the object being to organize a body for contingent military service under the title of the "Minute Men of New Orleans." Dr. Dirmeyer called the meeting to order, and the following gentlemen were nominated and unanimously approved as offi cers: Presidern-Dr. G. A. Nott. Vice-Presidens- E. Dussumier, A. Da Sola, John P. Uondon, Major A. G. Bianchard, Dr. G. W. Cronss, J. J. Michel, J. B. Houghton, H. W. Reynolds, John O'Brien, Jon. Laborde, E. Blessey, Jo. Salomon, O. W. Sadler, James Strawbridge, Major A. H.

Qo'rk. Dr. Nott, the President, on taking the chair made a brief but warm speech, and submitted the following preamble and resolutions, signed by himself and 277 other citizens: Whereas, Itis certain that an Abolition candi date will be elected to the Chief Magnistracyof the Union, upon the avowed and undisguised declara tion on his part and on the part of his supporters, that the common Government shall be adminis tered for the destruction of the rights and equal ity of the Southern States in the Union; and, whereas, we recognize the right of any sovereign State to withdraw from the partnership of States whenever, in her sovereign capacity, she may de termine that the objects of the Confederacy have been perverted, or not carried out in good faith, therefore, Resolved, That we, the citizens of Louisiana, ac knowledge our allegiance to our State to be para mount to our allegiance to the Federal Govern ment; and that, whereas, Abraham Lincoln has been elected President, we most " solemnlypledge our lives, our fortunes, and oar sacred honors," to maintain at all hazards and to the last extremity, any course she may adopt for self-defense against the Federal Power. Resolved, That if any Southern State determine to secede from the Union, we will, by all means in our power, assist her in her resistance against any effort on the part of a BIlack Republican Admin istration to coerce her back into the Confederacy. Resolved, That it is the sacred duty of Southern men, in the present alarming crisis, to forget past political differences, and to unite together as breth ren of one household, in determined opposition to the policy of the Black Republican party. For the accomplishment of the purposes above set forth, we hereby pledge onrselves, and cor dially invite men of all parties to join s who prefer independence out of the Union, to dependence, degradation and oppression within it. signedo) GUSTAVE A. NO'rT President. and 2;T otier nonam. The resolutions were adopted enthusiastically, with three cheers for South Carolina. Mtr. Chalmers spoke ; Mr. J. J. Michel also, and Dr. Austin. All were brief, but warm and to the point; and all were much cheered. Mr. Michel's question, "Shall we submit to- our enemies, or re sist?" was responded to in deafening shouts, "Re sist! resist to the death ! " Dr. Austin, at the close of his speech, offered the following draft of a memorial to the Governor of Louisiana: This Excellency, T. O. Moore, Governor of the State or IGuistall : The uddersigned, your memoralista, citizens of New Orleans.and of the State of Louiasiana, deeply impressed witto the conviction that the result of the recent electin.-fOe--President of the United States, in elevating a Black-IeptBblifan to that high office, is evidence of a deep-seated hastility on the part of the North towards our State ! common with the other States of the South; and in view of the fact that many of our sister Staten are taking counsel through their Legislatures, an I to what shall be done in this emergency, would re spectfully request your Excellency to convene the Legislature of our State, at as early a day as prac ticable, to take such measures as they may deem necessary and proper to vindicate and secure our rights. This was adopted, and very numerously signed on the spot. Mr. W. C. Capers addressed the meeting in strong and glowing terms. He had worked with the Bell and Everett party, but now knew no other party than that of the South. A resolution was adopted, that the meeting or ganize under .the name of " The Southern Rights Association of the State of Louisiana:" and papers were issued to receive the signatures of all desiring to join the same. The following gentlemen were then appointed to draft a constitution and by-laws, and select per manent officers, and call this meeting together thereafter : A. H. Gladden, George Seymour, H. H. Chalmers, tB. MI. Turnbull, J.. J. Michel, E. Blessey, G. W. Dirmeyer, M. M. Simpson, H. A. Clinch, J. M.Bon ner, James Strawbridge, A. P. Avegno, Joseph e Salomon, Joseph Laborde, B. S. Tappan, C. T. Nash, W. C. Capers. My r. Robert Hunter, of Rapides, Judge Cotton Capt. IIenry St. Paul and Mr. J. M. Bonner sue cessively addressed the meeting in the language 0 suited to the occasion. Capt. St. Paul announced that his company, No. 1 of the lhasseurs h Pied, had tendered their services to Gov. Moore. The enthusiasm of the meeting was very great, during all these speeches. S A blue cockade was shown as a sample of what all the Minute Men of New Orleans are expected to wear, whenever called upon to turn out: it be Sing understood that whoever accepted such a cockade, stood pledged to take up his gun and march to the fight whenever it should offer. The meeting then adjourned; and after the ad journment, a great portion of the crowd enrolled their narmes as members of the Minute Men of New Orleans. SOUTHERNERS PREPAREI CLEAN OUT YOUR POP GUNS AND SHARPEN YOUR TOOTH-PICKS. Mayor Monroe yesterday received from Boston a telegraphic dispatch, signed by a " Mr. Whaley," to this effect: That the Black Republicans are thoroughlyorganized to attack the South upon any attempt at secession; that they have employed Gen. Shields, of this country, and Gen. McMahon, of France, to lead the army, which will number a million of men, or more; and that if called out, their first movement will be to seize and occupy the cities of Boston, New York and New Orleans. A bloody civil war, adds Mr. Whaley, is inevitable, and the South should be prepared. We believe there are many, in the present state of public feel. ing, who could be induced to believe this dispatch. The Mayor simply treated it as a very cheap ans paltry specimen of wit, or attempt at a sell. The author, if known, would doubtless be kicked, ever in Boston. DEATH OF EDWARD DOUGHERTY. Edward Dougherty, shot by George Woolly is the Fourth District last week, died on Saturda; evening. Coroner Beach yesterday set about hi: inquest. The post-mortem examination by Dr Berthelot, aided by Dr. Lemtey, showed three bul let wounds; one a flesh wound in the right arm one a serious wound in the right side, the bulle lodging in the muscles of the hip ; and the other the fatal wound, in the left side, the bullet enterin, between the eighth and ninth ribs, fracturing th latter, wounding the spleen, causing a sligh hemorrhage, and resulting in inflammation an death. The circumstances of the tragedy will b a made known before the Coroner, to-day, at 1 Soclock, at Recorder Adama' office in the Fourt District. 0 OTHER INQUESTS. - The Coroner yesterday held an inquest on th n, body of Wm. Henry Peck, a native of New Yorl I years of age, found dead on board the steoa ship Tennessee, which arrived here on Saturday from Vera CGoz. Verdict, consumption. The de ceased was a river engineer, and hadgone to Vera Cruz for his health. Peeling that he was dying he concluded to thorn and take one more look at bhome; he was so feeble when he boarded the steamship at VeseCrns, that the Captain advised him not to come, as he did at believe tim able to survive the roughness of the voyage ; at he in sisted upon coming, was kept on boarodan. at. tended to, but died asthe steamship was ooming up the river, and when near the Quarantlie. Hav ing but little money with him, the Captain and crew of the Tennessee- generously raised a sub scription to have him deoently buried in this city,. and his relatives, if he leaves any, will be glad-to e know that though sick and friendless among strangers, the fact of his being an engineer brought him new friends, who did all they could for him and buried him decently. The Coroner yesterday- held inquests on two babies, one from Pennsylvania and the other frem Mexico. Dentition in one ease and marasmus in. the other, were the verdicts readered. Also, an inquest on the body of Hugh Longe, an Irish levee laborer, 30 yearn of age, found in the river at the foot of St. Philip street. Verdict, ac cidentally drowned. Deceased, with other labor. ere, was at work loading a ship lying third from the wharf, on Monday last, and disappeared myste riously. It was not known what had become of him till his drowned body turned up, and the con clusion was that whilst at work he fell between ships from the staging when no one else was near. JACKSON BENEVOLENT AS.SOIATION. This Association, composed principally of the German mechanics and tradesmen of the Third District, yesterday celebrated their fourth anniver sary by a grand turnout, parade, the dedication of their tomb in the St. Vincent de Paul Cemetery, and a dinner at the United States Hotel The procession was largeandelegant. Theban ners and flags were beautifully decorated, and there were two bands of music. The members were all in fashionable black dress, with blue scarfs, rosettes, and bonquets in their hands. After marching up town and around and down again, the procession continued on down to the cemetery on Lonisa street, back of the Mexican Galf Railroad, where they inaugurated their new tomb with due ceremony. John Leggett, Esq. made the oration, and did justice to the occasion and to himself. The dinner at the United States Hotel was a t sumptuous affair in all respects. The tables were loaded with all imaginable substantials and delica cies, and there was no end to the vinous accom paniment. There was much speeching and toast- ing of a happy character between the officers and members of the Association and their guests ; some account of which we would give had we the room in these columns. THE H. R. W. HILL DISAiSTER. Coroner Bench on Saturday proceeded to inves tigate the causes of the fearful accident on the above steamer, by which so many persons lost ' their lives. The jury sworn consisted of Masers. Gee. O. Beares, C. H. Waldo, J. A. Sylvester,. - ess Addison and J. B. Poindexter. e The firstwitnese examined was Mr. John Chrisy, a engineer of the steamboat Natchez. He testified as follows: From the examination of that part of the boiler that gave way, it appears that it was produced by natural causes. The ends of the fboiler were part cast iron and part wnrought iron. The cab""iron head being thicker. than the flange and boiler, caused the contraction and. expansion f to be uneqal. The consequence wan an unequal strain every time the boiler was heated, which caused this cast iron head tobe gradually oracked, until it could stand but little pressure and gave way. I am satisfied there was plenty of water In the boiler at the time, and can see nothing to came ens ie tolbe attached to the engineer. I am not aaeeltinted with the engineer of the boat, but I un derstai'dthese head ends have been on the boat some six or ~even years. i Jorhn . Marsdh, Upited -Slafea Leol Isepector, m sworn---I have seen te. boilers before the explo tr sion; I corroborate the statement of Mr. Christy as far as it goes. I had the stei ho gauges taken down Id after the explosion and examilltd them; I found the one in the cabin correct, the others had been injored by the explosion; she was allosed to carry i 120 pounds of steam; I am. not petsofdlly at. II quainted with the engineer; I am told that he ieid ly been on the boat ever since she was built. Celi iron heads are no longer allowed on the boilers; that is they are not put on, but those having them r- revious to the passag of the last law on the sub lo ject are permitted to retain them. rs I found the safety valve set at t5. 2a010ipounds. She was allowed 120 pounds. I do not think the I explosion could have moved the safety valve. Should a boat be in danger, and it be necessary to to put an extra amount of steam to get out of diffi culty, although the process be dangerous, it is left to the officer to choose the lesser danger of the two, in attempting to. save the lives of thepan. sengers. There are two safety valves on board of , steamboats; one is under the control of the engi neer; the other is not; it is the government safety valve, placed there as a check on the engineers. i . .n B. reteroto, awon.- It am an engineer by ph profession; I am now repairing some of the T. wrought iron work on the Hill. eI concur in the opinion of Mr. Christy. I have examined the casn iron boiler heads; the cracks in them I judge to in have taken place by gradoal giving away. One it. of them I examined particularly. I consider the cast iron head as safe as the wrought iron I have dfound both defective upon being removed, which ed is caused by too constant heavy pressure. Eoagi =d, neers being allowed a certain pressure by the in. specters, they often strive to keep up to thisde high ent mark- this is an unsafe practice. I would, i" tpermitted, by law, use a cast iron head as well as a wrought iron one ; but Iwould never carry more at than 150 lbs. on any boiler. I consider that our ed boats are allowed to carry too much steam. (apt. T. H. Newell, of the Ritl, sworn.-On the "C night of the accident, about 11 o'clock, I looked at a the gauge, and saw the steam was at 115 pounds. ad I walked out and was pacing the deck, congratn. lating myself upon the prospects of our speedy ar rival, when I heard something give way. I had no id- dea of an explosion. I ran to see what was the ed matter, and found that the boatwas leaking badly. I ordered ier head to be turned ashore. As we did so I heard the boat was on fire aft. All handswere immediately put to work with the buckets, to pau the fire out. I found that the head of the boile OP had given way. The explosion made no loud re. port. The change of the valve might have beeon na produced when the boat listed, as we got heron "1the bar. The engineer, Mr. Peters, has been on the boat some six or seven years. I would truslt e my life and property in his hands at any time. y Wm.1.Petlers, Eginer, sworn-I am firstengineel ed on the H. H. W. Hill; after the boat snagged ant , got on the bar, it listed, which might have caused the change in the valve, by throwing the weight el a the lever on one side; if sunch a thing had taker nt, place I would not have noticed it,unless I had beet py on top of the boilers; this Government valve it somewhrlat hid from view; I have never interfere( with this valve; it is a point of honor among thi le, engineers neve to meddle withit unless in thb eve eergeocy indicated by the inspectors ; I have et- necver noticed any leak in the bsiler-nothing thb could indicate a crack; since tihe explosion I hay eb. examined the boiler heads and found three of thee id crocked ; ispoke with blr. hIeek, the striker, wb li was billed, alter hIe had been hurt; he was all we text and his loot words to me concerning the accidee were thathe hlod tried the boilers and there we plenty of water in them. Aflter considering the evidence, the jury found verdict exhoecratiog the officers of the boat froi cny bIione, but declaring tlat,in their opinion, lb isy cast-iron boiler heads are unsafe, and recoosmenl ing ltalt they shoohll be no longer used on any boa Dr. In connetlion with this, we are informed b tot- Capt. Newell that be tis had all the boiler head h 'n bt s.,,,,.,t onho.s,, trd hisbat. aomeot otiron use instead of cast iron. COMING TO A FOCUS. The imbroglio between our two good friends t Monroe and Emerson, (one Mayor of the city and d the other the Recorder of the First Distriot,) ap. e proaches a climax. Nothing but law can settle 0 their differences as to thie line which divides theio I jurisdictions. A peremptory order of the Chief ol Police, posted in the First District lookup, forbids the officers to dis charge any prisoner on the order of the Recorder, (excepting those arrrested on hih e warrant,) unless the order be signed by the Mayo; or Chief of Police. It Recorder Emerson, yesterday went, as al Recorders ely do, onody, to oebaL the priaoners, and fne ead s4eb . . e, as had only disturbed . . por, jft , ont, etc. He could not order the oa te fdbebarg tib man or that man, because If they oe M ovd they would certainlyhe bdidmised byt asaapee eoeers, the Mayor anad the Chlet ofPsa , . fl the Recorder took the keyls adt had opened the cells and disoharged ta - ers against whom there was no ser.towea charge juse at se he ad done (we mean n the keys, but as to the discharge) on amiayp viou 8emday morning, Mayo. aw roe, hearing of this aetito of lba .. 0 corder, ordered the *ofettio b arge tolfeakebsp keys of the eels, so tbatthe Recorder eidg apt use them again.
