The- New Yorlc Herald Giving up tlc
Union SometU ins Practical for the
Blaufi to Consider.
Within the last few weeks, we have given
incontestible evidence of a deliberate pur
pose, formed two years ago and shaped into
a well defined organization, and cherished
by certain ultra democratic leaders in the
South, to dissolve the Union and revolution
ize the government of the United States.
Every day brings forth additional proof of
the entire truth of the allegation. On the
27th we printed extracts from a late letter or
Mr. Keitt, a member of Congress from South
Carolina, characterized by a loity tone of
defiance, and deliberately declaring his con
Tictions of the duty of the South. All the
quotations we have heretofore made were
from supporters of Mr. Bbeckinrioge at the
South, which clearly demonstrated what those
leaders expected from his candicay. A
conviction of the truth of these charges ha?,
at length, found a lodgment in the minds of
some men at the North ; and this morning
we publish the response of the N. Y. Ilercdd,
which is earnestly at wmk for Mr. Breckin
ridge also, and which, according to the Union
and American, 'has perhaps a greater influ
ence than any other one paper in the Uuion
with the hundreds and thousands of conserv
ative men in the Northern and Middle States
engaged in mercantile and manufacturing
pursuits." To this response wc invite the
attention of reflecting men of all parties. It
must be remembered that the Herald has re
peatedly, of late, exp ensed the belief, th: t
the election of Mr. Lincoln is a foregone con
clusion; and even in the article under consid
eration, admits that Mr. Lincoln -seems mor
ally certain to obtain a majority of totes in
the electoral ct 0 ge." With this adm'ssion,
the Herald proceeds to comment upon the
letter of Mr. Kkitt, which it publishes in the
same impression, and that of Mr. Yancet to
3r. Slaughter, which it mis-dates ; and
then makes up its mind to see the Union slide.
Whatever we may think of the political man
agement of the Herald, whether we regard
this as merely and designedly a "sensation
article' got up to produce excitement and
alarm and to put in motion certain influ
ences in theNorthornStates to produce certain
effects In favor of BnECsixKiiE ; whether it
be considered as a btrategic movement of a
partisan or the sober fear of an earnest pat
riot, there is no doubt but tbat it possesses a
substantial foundation, that it rests upon a
substratum of truth, which should cause all
men of all parties and sections to pause and
reflect. It foreshadows some of the immedi-
coasequenceg that are to lie anticipated
continued forcing ot secuouai li-sues
upon the country. This Northern supporter
of Brsxunridge marks the great outline of
the result with terrible and fearful clearing.
It Uj8 the Southern Senators and Represen
tatives 'in Congress, instead of going to
Washington, as they have done throughout
a long period of national union and natioual
prosperity w 11 go to Richmond ; and if the
people of the Union, acticg in the usual mode
at the ballot-box under the high sanctions of
the Cons imtioa. declare against Mr. Bklck
ixridgk, they will then and there open a Con
gress in due form and proclaim Mr. Brecklv

from presenting a picture of the scenes that
would follow such action ; but with an eye
glaring upon the disaster tbat must follow,

Thelnfott Elections. -
Several of the Southern States hold elec
tions early in the month of August North
Carolina on the 2d, and Missouri and Ar
kansas on the 6th. Full tickets are in the
field for State officers in each, but only inMis
souri is the division line very distinctly
drawn between the friends of Breckinridge
and ; Douglas. There is also a State Elec
tion1 in Kentucky on the 6th, for Clerk of
the Court of Appeals. .
Missouri will choose a Governor and State
officers and Seven Congressmen. Four can
didates are in the field for Governor Han
cock. Jackson, Breckinridge, Democrat;
Claiborne F. Jackson, Douglasite; Sample
Ore, Know Nothing or Union ; and James
B Gakdexhibe, Republican. The Democrat
I ion held preTion8 to the Charles
ic Convention held previous to the Charles
ton Convention, nominated C. F. Jackson
for Governor. He has been stumping the
State for several months. Having recently
declared for Doculas, the National Demo
crats held a Convention and nominated Han
cock Jackson. The vote for Governor, how
ever, will be no test of the relative strength
of the Democratic and Douglas parties in
Missouri, as Senator Green supports C. F.
Jackson on'tbe ground that he stands squarely
upon the platform erected for him by the
Convention that nominated him. Mr Green,
it will be remembered, is an enthusiastic sap
porter of the Breckinridge ticket.
The voteJ of Missouri for several years
has been as follows :

There is quite a number of gentlemen in
the field for Congress, representing all shades
of politics. In some districts the Democrats

A considerable number of our citizens as
sembled at the market house Friday night,
moed thereto by a notice in the morning pa
pers that the supporters of the Douglas and
Johnson ticket would have a meeting there.
At an early hour, Dr. Ucrlet, President of
the Docglas Association introduced to toe
audience Hon. D.C.Hcmphrets, of Alabama.
After a brief reference to his descent from
Tennessee stock, and hi claims to be heard,
in support of Douglas and Johnson, he sta
ted that he intended in his speech to prove
First, that all the candidates for the Presi
dency, with the exception of Lincoln, were
committed to the same doctrine in regard to
slavery in the Territories.
second, that Mr. Douglas was the regularly
nominated eamiidate of the Democratic
Third, tbat Mr. Breckinridge was tbc can
didate of the disunionists
In support of these propotitions he made
an elaborate argument which it would put
anv Erekixkidge orator to bis metal to an
swer successfully. He clearly proved the first
proposition, so far as it relates to Messrs.
Douglas and Bkeckwridde, incidentally pla
cing Gen. Lane in the same category. But,
he failed to show that Mr. Bell coincided
with th.ni. The record of Mr. Bell has
not been sufficiently investigated by the
democratic speakers. Those who are dis
posed to do him justice, and wc regard Mr.
Humphreys as one of thm have relied too
much upon what has been charged by bis
enemies who have sought to pervert and
misrepresent hi3 views upon all questions.
We commend his record to the investigation
of all who seek the truth. They will find he
entered public life with fixed principles, and
that all bis acts were regulated by them,
with au eye to the promotion of the interests
of the people, without regard to sections, to
the protection of the constitutional rights cf
all, to the cultivation of Iraternal relations,
and to the preservation of the Union. And,
withal, they will discover that he has been a
firm and inflexible friend of the South.
The remaining propositions were also
proved. In the elucidation of the second it
was necessary to speak somewhat in detail of
the proceedings of the Charleston and Bal
timore Conventions, and to comment upon
the action of the seceding delegates. Hia
comments upon the latter were made in no
unkind spirit, but they were severe in their
truthfulness and justness. In this connection
he commented also upon the reason given by
secedinz delegates for retiring to-wit : be
cause the rights of the South were denied re-
gnition and contrasted the former views
Caleb Clshixg. who retired with them at
Baltimore, uttered in his memorable speech
m Congress sgainst tne numiwiuu vi
eas with a clause in her constitution authori
Congress sgainst the admission ot ArKan
zing slavery, with the course oi ine iorm
Western democrats who remained, and who
had ever, as he averred, stood by the South,
and interposed themselves as a shield between
her and the abolitionisU and black republi
cans. He also contrasted with Mr.Crsaixo's
views passages from speeches of Mr. Doco-
las, and assumed that whilst Mr. D.had ever
. , i r- . ,
been a stern and unrelenting foe of black re-
blicanism, and an able and honest defender
the rights of the South, Mr. C. had laid in
Massachusetts the foundation upon which
had been erected the superstructure of abo
litionism which now overshadowed all parties
in that State. Mr. Humphrkts alluded also
to the reason assigned by Mr. Butler, of
Mass., for withdrawing at Baltimore to-wit:
a delegate from Georgia had been permitted
to make a speech in favor of re-opening-the
African slave trade.
In making good bis third' proposition he

he was now the leader of the Brkctixrixje
party. . In Alabama Mr. Yancet had, be said.
leader, bj the democracy. True, be had
erred on the electoral ticket in 1856, but
not until that canvass was he recognized.
The democracy of Alabama had really no
sympathy with and could not approve the
movement in the State Convention, under his
auspices, which led to the secession at
Charleston. He spoke of Mr. Yancey's de
nial tbat he was a disunionist, quoting and
commenting upon his declaration at Balti
more that he was neither for the Union nor
against the Union, for disunion nor against
disunion. , If, said Mr. IL, he (Mr.' Y.) was
not for the Union he would not care if it was
destroyed ; if be was not against disunion,
he would not care if it came. His remarks
upon Mr.Y. were forcible and altogether ap
propriate. As a whole his speech was one of
the most effective made here Tor some time
Made in every county in the State, there
would be an end to Breckixridge-Yaxcey-
ism. We have not attempted a sketch of it,
because we could not do bim jastice.
Mr. H. was followed by Mr. Borxixs, of
Hamilton county, who made a brief speech,
much to the satisfaction of his audience, it
the applause which greeted it was any indi
cation of it.

ing, with the object of the appointing of Com

the State at large and for the Districts.
. At the conclusion of his speech, Mr. Wat
terson moved the appointment of two com
mittees of five each one to present to the
Convention suitable resolutions, and the
other a committee of five on organization.
Hon. Wm. H. Polk, of Maury, brother of
the late President Polk, seconded the motion,
stating that there was a misapprehension as
to the hour at which the preliminary meeting
of this morning should be held, and the regu
lar convention of this evening, and offered,
as an amendment, that the committees which
should then be appointed by. the President,
report to the convention at three O'clock in

The Chairman, Hon. V. K.Seeyexson, then
tendered the Convention bis most cordial
thanks, for the honor conferred en him. He
stated to the Convention, tbat be could only
pledge himself heartily for Douglas and John
son; he bad not mingled much in politics du
ring his life; he had learned, when a boy, to
venerate and love General Jackson, and when
old enough to take part in the politics of bis
country, he had co-operated with Jndge Cat
ron and Governor Carroll in establishing
Democratic principles in this section; tbat be
bad assisted at tbat early day in establishing
a Democratic organ in this city the Union,
and tbat be held a deed of trust on tbat pa
per; be didn't know what bad become of it;
he did know that his money teas in it; be had
observed the course of the Union at the open
ing of this campaign, and believed the course
it bad taken would have a tendency to ulti
mately break up the Democratic party; he
also stated tbat bis honest convictions were,
tbat when the people could learn all the facts,
they would rally to the support of Douglas.
We sent delegates to Charleston,he continued,
not to secede ! these delegates returned from
Charleston and went to Baltimore, and there
they were persuaded off; he said Mr. Breckin

could not carry a single Northern State;
to vole for Mr. Breckinridge would be U to

The Hon Garret Davis, in a letter to
George D. Prentice, excusing himself from
attending a Bell ratification meeting in Lou

the secedcrs candidate :
"Mr. Breckinridge is a gentleman of good
talents, of fine manners, and easy and grace
ful elocution. His habits are indolent, and
bis attainments and thoughts superficial.
He is cool, cautious and selfish, and yet a
fine boon componion."
Garret might have added tbat this melange
is seasoned with an undue proportion of van
ity. The daguerreotype would then have been
A Remarkable Meteor.
A meteor of unusual size was seen in the
East last Friday' night, - The Philadelphia
Ledger says of it :
About half-past nine a very extraordinary
meteor made its appearance in tbe heavens1
The writer was riding in Broad-street, below
the city, and had a fair view of the phenom
enon in its whole course. It rose in tbe
north-western part ot tbe heavens, from a
cloud which was not revealed until the light
of the meteor made it visible. Tben an ob
ject, about tbe size of tbe full moon, and as
bright, suddenly started from the cloud, tra
versed. In a direct easterly line, the whole
extent of visible space, dropping fire appa
rently, in its course, like a rocket, till it
passed so far eastward as to resemble a red
ball about twice tbe size of the planet Mars,
risible in tbe south-east. So soon as it dis
appeared, a flash like heat lightning, revealed
a cloud to tbe eastward, low down in the
horizon, which continued to emit flashes of
light for half an hour afterward. Tbe phe
nomenon at one time seemed to separate
like a rocket when it bursts, but the larger
portion keeping in a straight course towards
tbe eastward. It was witnessed by many
persons, and caused considerable wonder
ment for tbe time, and was certainly tbe
most extraordinary appearance that we ever
saw in tbe heavens. In motion it was not so
fast apparently, as that or a rocket,tboogh its
height and the vast extent of space that it
traversed, proved tbat its velocity must have
exceeded tbat produced by any known force
which we are acquainted with. The phenom

for the future tbat we regard tbe present

of tbe confederacy an event which, at first

therefore, t lay before the country this morn
ing tbe evidence tbat the South has already
made arrangements to secede peaceably from
tbe Union in tbe event of the election of
Lincoln, who seems morally certain to obtain
a majority of votes in the electoral college.
We commend, then, to the careful attention
of our readers tbe elaborate manifesto of the
Hon. Lawrence M. Keitt, and tbe brief, but no
less important, letter of tbe Hon. William L.
Yancey, which will bo found in our impres

gentlemen are ranked as "fire-eaters" at the
North, but we know, also, tbat they represent
the general feeling in tbe cotton States, and
tbat tbe cry of secession, which was raised
four years ago, comes up now with redoubled
vigor, and that some ot tbe most prominent
Union men in 1856 are now foremost in tbe
ranks of the seceders.
If we examine Mr. Keitt's argument critic
ally, we shall find that his premises are
plainly stated, and bis conclusions worked
out clearly and logically. He employs no
bombastic phrases by way of illustration ;
his etyle is calm and temperate, and he writes
like a man who expresses the deliberate con
victions of a powerful party, rather than one
who gives vent to bis own crude and ill-digested
fancies. In bis letter the position of
the republican party is fairly stated. He ac
cepts for the party creed Mr. Sumner's view;
first, that slavery is barbarous, andtheSouth
necessarily in it savage state; second, tbat
the South, being inferior in every way, is to
be held tributary to the North, which section
is hereafter to be the sole fountain of politi
cal power. What follower of Lincoln's ban
ner can deny that these are the issues ot bis
party, as presented by Seward, Sumner,
Helper and other leaders and teachers of the
republican masses. Mr. Keitt proceeds to
prove that the "impending crisis" is npon us
that the "irrepressible conflict" is "a living
and terrible reality.' He asks, pertinently,
what would have become of the government
bad the black republicans held tbe executive
power when the John Brown affair took
place at Harper's Ferry. His sympathizers
would have sided with him as a matter of
course, and the land would have been de
luged with fraternal blood. The motto of
the South is "Equality in the Union, or Inde
pendence out of iL" If the party which
John Rrnwn rpnresented succeed in the next
Mr. Keitt calls for a union of all parties
in tbe South tor Breckinridge and Laue, but
he bas evidently very little hope of their
election. He is prepared for the inevitable
result. He advises secession, and points the
way towards such a consummation, and
closes with a description of the rottenness of
our political system, in wbicb, though over
drawn, there is too much that is undeniably
The letter of Mr. Yancey advances the
same conclusions as that ot Mr. Keitt: and
since the 10 of June the 44 League of United
Southerners" bas not been idle. Already
the cotton States are prepaied for revolution.
The piece is loaded. The torch is lighted.
The cannoneer stands by bis gun waiting for
tbe fatal signal.
It is not alone the evidence of Messrs.
Keitt and Yancey which we have upon this
subject. The influential Southern presses
declare that the issue is between the urth
and the South, as represented oy Lincoln
and Breckinridge ; that the South will be
defeated, and that the State Legislatures
must be prepared for the worst. In the
Gulf States the feeling in favor of secession
seems quite unanimous, the border States
are undecided, and there is a dark cloud
which means mischief hanging over Virginia.
The great landed proprietors ot the Souih
believe that, in the event of Lincoln's elec
tion, there would be no adequate security
for their property, and they are, therefore,
preparing to reassume the powers delegated
to the general government. We cannot re
sist the conviction that they are terribly in
That the South can secede, if united ia tbe
movement, there is no reasonable doubt.
The vote of that section will be given to
Breckinridge and Lane. The Southern Sen
ators and members of the House would go
to Richmond instead of Washington. Con
gress being opened in regular form, Mr.
Breckinridge would be declared President of
the United Southern republic, and the gov
ernment may be organized in a week after
the result of the November election is made
known. There is really nothing to prevent
such action on the part of tfca South, and
there is every reason to dread that it may
In view of this state of things, we deem it
to be our duty to warn parties interested of
the danger which threatens them. So far as
we can see, the Breckinridge movement at
the North will avail nothing. Lincoln will
be the Northern President, and Breckinridge
the Southern. The confusion into which our
commercial and monetary affairs will be
tnrown cannot be described. Trade wiil re
ceive a blow compared to wbicb tbe storm of
1857 was a mere flurry; stocks will go down
to within a fraction of nothing; all kinds of
property will depreciate in value, and the
fortunes accumulated by years of toil will
be swept away in a moment.
We advise our readers to prepare for the
coming crisis. Between this time and Novem
ber something may be saved from the wreck.
Merchants who have dealings with Southern
traders will do well to close us such affairs as
soon as possible. Holders of Southern State
railway or city stocks, or securities of the
general government, should realize npon
them at once. Bankers at borne and abroad
should prepare themselves for the inevitable
panic in nnanciai anairs. ine crisis is im
minent. Tbe dissolution of tbe Union is a
fact already determined upon. Let us be
prepared to meet the doom which tbe trading
politicians and crazy fanatics of the day have
precipitated upon tue republic.

Bailey 8 Springs, Ala., July 12, 1860.
Gentlemen: I am in receipt of your fa
vor of the 7th insL, informing me of my no
mination lor Elector of the 7th Congression
al District of tne State of Tennessee, on tne
National Union Ticket, by the convention
wbicb met at Waynesboro on tbe 5ib inst.-
While I consider it a high compliment to
be chosen as one of tbe standard bearer in a
crisis, second only to one in importance in
American hietory, lor the good of our great
and glorious cause, I would have been grati
fied bad tbe convention nominated some one
else. My recent ill health bas rendered any
active participation in tbe cauvass doubtful.
But being now unengaged in the bepe of a
speedy recovery, and being not only willing,
out anxious to do battle in a cause tnat ad
dresses itself to tbe heart of every man who
loves bis country, and desires the perpetuity
and integrity ot our Union, with all its con
stitutional rights, I cannot not now decline
the position you have tendered me. And to
soon as I am able, 1 shall lend evtry energy
of my nature to the advancement ot our ti tec
honored and glorious principles.
Please accept tbe assurance of my warm
est thanks )or the pleasant terms in which
yon have made known to me tbe action of the
convention you represent.
Respectfully Yours, .
