Tlia Southern Patriot wishes to know our o. pinion as to the proper time and place of holding a Convention in this Congressional District. In matters of this sort, where expediency alone is involved, we are generally guided by precedent. In 1847, the Democrats ol tho district acted bar. moniotisly, and therefore widely, in selecting the 24h day of May as the time, and Greensboro' as tho plact of holding the Convention. We say then let us adhere to a precedent which has pro. ed to be good let the Convention be held at Greensboro' on th 24th (the 4th Thursday) of May next. Such is our humbla opinion, t nd the Patriot and the other Democrats of the District may take it for what it is worth. And while upon this subject, we would say further, as the Democrat of the District in 1147, nominated and elected W. S. Featheriton by a triumphant majority, and as there is no just ground of complaint against him thut wo knnw of, but on the contrary, as he has proved him sell a faithful and capable public aervaut, al ways truo to the principles of the Democracy, let them re-nominate and re-elect him, as we know thny can, and hope they will. Dut should ho declino running again, or from any other cause, should the Convention, in their wisdom, think proper to select some other good and truo Democrat as our Congressional standard beurer, we shall bo content, and shall give the nominee a decided and hearty (support. THE SOUTHERN ADDRESS. The address of tho Southern Delegates in Con ercss to their constituents, written by Mr. Cab huiin, is published in the Washington Imion ol the asth ult. We have read it with the deepest interest, and havo no hesitation in pronouncing it the ablest and most Important document of the day. As the Charleston Mercury says: " it ii full of power and dignity, and appeals to the Southern people on questions that touch not only their independence as sovereign Slates, but their safety as organized communities." Wo shall publish It in our next, when our readers will bo able to judge of its merits for themselves. It ! signed by 10 Scnatori and 38 Representatives, in fuithe.r alienttion, aud in the inevitable disso lution of the cmill-.teracy. Resolved, Thai the rcceully acquired territo. ry having been purchased by blood and treasure, ol w hich her full proportion was contributed by I ho South, she and her sons are entitled equally with any other portion of the Union, to the en. joyment of the same j this General Assembly, therefore, believing thai Congress possesses, uu. der the constitution, no nower to pass such a measure, ailoutinir similar language to that of the legislature of Virginia, hereby declare it as their opinion "that under no circumstances will the people ol this Mate be willing to recognise as binding, any enactment of the Federal Gov eminent, which has for its object the prohibition of slavery iu any lenitory south of the line ot tho Missouri Compromise, holding it to be the natu ral and independent right ol each citizen, of each and every Sine of the Confederacy, to reside with his property, ol whatever description, in a ny territory acquired by the arms of the United Stales, or yielded by treaty with any foreign pow. cr" Resolved, That in the abolition ol slavery in the District of Columbia, involving as it does, an exercise of power not granted by the consti tution, and designed at it is, as a means of affect ing the institution of slavery in the Slates, a gainst which it is aimed as a blow, should be re sisted on the part of the South, by whatever mean are best adapted to the protection of the Consti tution, the defence of herself, and the preserva tion of the Union. Resolved, That knowing no party names, or political divisions, on questions involving in their settlement and consequences, tho character, tho property and lives of those whom we represent, we are ready hi art and soul, with a united front, to join Virginia, the Carolina!, and tho oilier Southern Stains, in taking such measures for the defence of our rights and tho preservation of our selvra and those whom we hold dear, as the highest w isdom of all, may, whether through a Southern convention or otherwise, mggest aod devise.

It is signed by ouly two Whigs Gaylo of Alabama, and Tompkins of this State. Tho Union also publishes Mr. Berrien's Ad dress, which was offered a a substitute for Mr, Calhoun's, and wa rejected.

They have een with feelings of deep mortification, an off irt to dissolve our riou Union, by abolishing alaverv in the trictof Columbia, and applying the Wilmot Pro. viso ol our territorial organization of New Mexi co and California. As the result of such action on the part of our brethren at the North, we have seen ellorts made by the border State ot the South to call conven tion and manumit their slaves by Constitutional laws, and preparatory thereto, holding out en couragement to their citiien to send their slaves to the South, in order that there may be as few negroe amongst them at the period of their le gal emancipation as posibl. The State of Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, and Misotiri, wher slavery ha ceae I to be profitable, from the uncertain tenure by which they are held, ar e now throwing an immense black population on the extreme Southern Slates which i dejlined to increase w ith immense rap idity, until our S:ate will be overrun with a pop ulation that will constitute the moil dang-ro'j of all the enemies we shall havo to encounter. When the present border States f hall have emancipated their slaves, they will in time join the Northern Confederacy, until the day will tome when we or our children shall have to meet thi oucstion as citizen of a border State, and when, loo, the black population in our midst will present the mot appalling obstacle to our succes. If we are destined to be overwhelmed by our enemio, we do not desire to be driven from our home and the grave of our dead, which will be the inevitable consequence of an i.itie lobe met with the abolitionist in our rear, and a crowd of felon slave, which they have forced upon us, in our midst. To avoid this evil, we hold it to be our duty to keep those slave in the State north of us, in order to force those States to stand between us and those desperate fanatics w ho seem resolved to crush us. By forcing those State to retain their slave within their own border, tl.ey will never consent to manumit them, as they cannot permit them to remain amongst them as free negroes, and thus their interests will remain identified with ouis, and they will be forced lo sUnd by our side in the struggle for the constitutional right of the South.

On our first page, wilt be found a well limed and well written article from the Miseiseippian, on the iiibjecl of a State Convention, to which we direct the attention ot the reader. At no pie vious time, within llie last ten or fifteen years, perhaps ba there been so urgent a necessity for the Democratic party of the State lo meet togeth er through their accredited agents, delegates freah from among them and fully informed a to their wishes and opinion in older to settle upon the plan of the coming political campaign, and select their Candidate for the various State officers. A State Convention must be held, and we entire ly concur in the recommendation made by the Democrats assembled at the Capitol last Decem ber, that the city of Jackson should be the place, and the Jirtt Tvesduy of June next the time of holding tbo Convention, and w believe that ' this recommendation will meet very generally with the approbation of the Democrat in this part of the State. The W hig party, notwithstanding our greatly diminished majority at th Presidential election last fall, know that they have no chance of car- rying the State but through our divisions. "Un. ' ion it tvrrtu." Let this be our motto, and with (he proper energy, and the spirit of concession ' jtnd compromise as to men, w hich a fairly organ red State Convention ii calculated to engender and uirTuse througu our tank, we may oafoly count upon a glorioui vleory next November- O'ltk-ll)' Line. ARRIVAL OF GEN. T.WLOR IN NASH VILLE. Nashville, Tk.u. 7, 1849, 3 o'clock P. M. Gen. Taylor arrived at 10 o'clock A. M. Al. though thousands from the country were deterred from being here mi account of the Cholera, he . . ..... i. i- was greeted uy ommisiasuc snouts ot a great multitude. Alter moving at llie head of a large procession through the city, he was received by Gov, Brown as the guest of tho State in an address, lo which (Jen. Taylor re sponded in a speech of 15 or 20 minutes, which w ai earnestly delivered but which we could not bear. He will leave to-morrow 8th on the Dan iel Boone iu expectation of meeting tho Court laud al Sir-ithland. . RANG iV CO. Mr. Calhoun was again taken yesterday with a slight fainting fit in the lobby of the Senate, aud was carried to the Vic President's room. Alter taking somethmc ol a itimulalinc charac ter, he was restored, and left tho copitol for hi lodgings. It is said that he has only overworked himsi li and will soon be well. Some of his friends, however, are seriously concerned at his condition. I learn this morning he is belter, and that tie passed a good night.

Later accounts state that Mr. Calhoun had al moil entirely recovered, and though still feeble, was able to resume his seat in the Senate. Gen. Gbobgb McDcrna. The Charleston Mercury of the 30th ult. eayi : "We are much gratified in being able to state upon the authority of a letter from his physician which we have ourselrei seen, that the health of Gen.

The sentiment which actuate these gentlemen, and which prompted General Taylor to adopt them as the rule of his conduct, cannot be felt or undotstood by tbo herd of office ieekrs who would bar gain fir an appointment with the same coolne and indifference that they would show in buying or elling a plug of tobacco or a pound of mgar. They cannot appreciate Gen. Taylor'i motive for refining to promie ofiic to them. There is no logic by w hich they can be madn to under hand them! You mieht as well talk heathen Greek to them a ay the Preidenl cannot make inch promises without a violation of propriety. Propriety indeed! that' a beautiful word to utlor iu the face of a man who wants lo bo collector of the port of New Orleans! You would have a better chance of being listened to if you should talk about propriety lo a hungry ox in a clover field! But stilt the rulesot propriety exist in the mind of every gentleman ot high and honorable teelingi, and although not uiiduistood by vulgar oul, thev are not going to be transgressed by General Taylor." A large amount of machinery lor the working of the gold mine of Major Hcissand Commodore Stockton, in V irgima, ha recently passed thro from Philadelphia.

So says the history of all confederacies. Look at them. Th Amphyrtionic league, the Germanic con federation, the seven United Provinces, the thir teen Swiss Cantons. Let llie Democracy of the North remember these things, and then eschew, as they would fly the incantations ofthe serpent, the siren songs ol ancient toe who would enlist llieir feelings in a concert of action which is to end in arraying one half of the States ofthe Un ion against th other. MOREOFT?1E The Washington Union publishes a letter from Gen. Persifor F.
