YANCEY'S MEMPHIS SPEECH. Frum the Union and American, July 31, 1858. The Southern League Extremes Meet." It is tomewhat remarkable that fanatics at the North, and the ure-ealers attheSiuth, represvntii-g as tncy do.lbo extremes of political and social antag onism, should be found aiding each other iu t le pro motion of a common purpose. Garrison aud his fol lower ara not more earoett In their efforts for tbe dissolution of the Union and the destruction of the Confederacy ,tban Hie Southern ultraisls who are con slamly uiUaniing the pnbli- miud by fervid appeals to their passions and prejudices, intended to kind'e dissensions between the suctions, and weaken the bonds which bind them together. While the aMi tionists denounce the Constitution and the Union, "as an unholy compact," the aulkirtand nlruiaU-t cf the Suutkcrn League, are striving 'to precipitate thctouth into a revolution." Both eitreuieji agree in thinking dissolution desirable, and they rival each ol her iu thcir liusuUty loth it calm conservative policy bo:b would counsel mutual forbearance between the different portions of our Confederacy. The ojj ct coueniplated in the organization of the Southern League, is one wkick no patriot canapprort.

It asoiiuies an ettitnde uf refittince to the gcne.al ftmrnment and it an aeomed preparation fur open rebellion. It is not a combination of men uniting together for the redress of their common wrongs, or lor the establishment of a great principle. No each sacred object aanctihes the movement, or extenuates the recklessness of lbe who paroeipalo in it- it ii bated uptm consider ation tf pecuniary advantage ahme. Coiton is the bond wnich unite them togclDer. t'otum is the King that wields its golden sceptre over their heads, and they bend submissively to its dominion. It is humil iating lo confess that Ibe noble spirited tree men of tne South have foi gotten their obligations to their country, not because its government was uujust, or lis laws oppressive, but because they think Incur )e cumary interests would be promoted by a dissolution of the Union. They seem to regaid roitou as the only test of fidelity to the SouUi, the only tie that binds the Southern sisterhood together. They regard the States which do not prouuee it with distrust and suspcion. They banUh them from their councils, and refuse them their confidence. From the Union aud American, Sept. 9, 1658. Col. Yaneey'a Letter to fllr. Pryor. We Ond In the columns of the Richmond Enquirer, a long letter from Col. Yancey to Koger A. Pryor, Esq., of the Richnioud South. Neither thenoveltyof the sentiments which this document contains nor the ability with which they are maintained, entitles it to the slightest attention. The orgauizat.ou and objects of the southern League, and the scheme for "precip itaung theCottun Mates into a Kevolutoiu," a pur pore which was avowed by Col. Yaucey in his letter to Mr. Slaughter, have already been discussed iu our columns. Tne letter belore us only reiterates views which have been hitherto expressed by Col. Yancey himself, and by many others of that class of politi cians who, fading to gaiu distinction by their talents and ability, seek to obtain notoruty by the advocacy of extreme sectional and disorganising measures. The characteristics of tne document are prolixity, egotism, and imbecility. It will do no barm. CuL Yancey defends his former position, that the iu terestsof the South must be commuted entirely to the Coltou States. Now we do not doubt that the true interests of the South might be earely entrusted to the people of any of the Southern States. We believe that Col. Yancey 'a own SlaUi Alabama is as laliu lul to the South and as loyal to the Union as any oth er, and among the evidence of her fidelity we point to the fact, that the large body of her citizens have refused to unite iu this factious and disorganiz ng movement, or to elevate its author to a HiUou in which be could propagate his opinions. We believe that all the Cotton Biules will vigilantly guard the honor and luterest of our section , and that beliui is strengthened by the fact, that they discountenance the scheme which t'U. 1'am.cy hat set onfuvt to rrecipilate theminto a revuluti'm." Hut while we acku'jw ledge this, wo repel any in sinuation which implies a suspicion that Tennessee is less sensitive to tho honor of thu South, or that sho would be less prompt in recisliug any invasion of our cuminou rights than any oilier member of the con federacy. We deny tue ju.-uco of Coi. Yaucey 'a charges, aud the correctness of the facts by which he seeks to sustain them. e i We are not astonished that Col. Yancey places bat l.tUe tru?1 in Tennessee. 'Ibe home of Jackcou aud Polk is not propiliuns to the growth aud nurture of ttisonion doctrines, nor do the cople of this 6lat- re gard with much faeor men who entertain the cicrs which CoL Yancey exprestet. The Mate or Tennessee fully reciprocates Coi. Yancey's feelings towards her. We "don't think tliat any of the Mates hsve a great deal of conn lence in bun. t ne allegation that the delegates from Tennessee in he Methoaist Conference roted against striking out the anti-slavery clause in the discipline, is U'ally false. Every obligate from Teunessee voted mjaar vf Urtkiaij out that clause. It m finally -untrue that we mtintain upon our Mipreme wntu a man who openly declares that slavery is a moral, social or po litical evil. These statements of Col. Yaucey 's, ais pjy the mast difjracrful ignorance or a mod culpable disregard for the truth of his acserttvns. And such is the material of wuich uiis tissue ot absurdities con sists. Such is the man who assumes to pi escribe five r the S-iulhem Stales of the confederacy as unwor thy of the CouQdf-nce of the Southern x-opie. We shall pause long belore we abandon tne principles we have learned irotn Jackson aud Polk, and tbe gre.it fathers of our Democratic faith, to listen to the teach ings of Wm. L. Yaucey. From the Union and American , October Hi , li. UUam L. Vance) . We must apologize to our readers for aaiu ! tra ding this gentleman's name upon their uottce. Ter is nothing in either h-Jt posiLiuO or taleuts to entitle him U the attention be has received, but the malig nity of his assault upon our Slate and the injustice of his charges against a res.iectablo deuomuiation of chruuaus in our midst deaiauded from us a public exposure. It is the ptrt of little minds t persist in error, when conscious of having; commilled a wrong, and ace are not astonished that Mr. Vance y rcptatt hit misrepresentations. Feaiiug ihc impudeuce of his as sertions may be received as evidence nf their truth, we will present the facts wb.ch ilr. Yancey has per eerted, and leave the reader to determine whether we nave done him any injustice in our nenul of the alle tious contained in bis letter to 14r. Tryor. Iu that letter be expresses the opinion that the State of Jen. ncsste is unworthy ofconhtieuce where the intercJs of the South are iHoolced. The subsequent action of that body (tbe Met hoc is t Conference) with reference to the subject is studioudg suppressed by Mr. Yancey, and we are jusiiued iu tne the belter, inasmuch as he had the procoediugs of the C inference before him, that be lias perpetrated an ntentumal injustice agaiuct lis members, in order to Kuslaiu himseu 111 the false petition raicA he had as sumed. If he had pubusnea be lollowmg statement from the Advocate it would have disclosea the t'iug 3C9S9 or mis aianuuurr that "uie Delegates from Ten nessee voted agaiust struving out tbe anti-slavery clause of the discipline." "We do not expect either tr-th oa jcsiics from a man who will assad the jmi triuttsm of an entire Stte on such pretenses as these. I We can dispose of Mr. Yancey without resorting to ! Latin. The obtuaeness of intellect w hich this rare specimen of log displays cau scarcely be described in any languaae, but plain English will seem well oough xo characterise the BasuiBHa or bus coancrT. We have devoted more time and space lo Mr. Yan. My than be deserves. We shall leave him now to en joy the notoriety he has earned, or to sneak back from snfamy 'to tsuijntficance. Tenxessk Browxites WRmrrNo. We received yesterday a letter from a gentleman of position, la Tennessee, from which we learn that the Bell men there are denying that Hon. Neill Brown said, in the Bell Con vention, that he would give op all the negroes in the South, in preference to the Union. Denting it, ah? That is tbe first we hare heard of it, and we get it from the Montgomery ilaiL The Miril seems to be more Interested in Tennes see afiairs than those of Alabama. Suppose you move up this way, where you can get things at first band. Pennsylvania Cheering. . Tbe State Executive Committee of the Constitutional Union party of Pennsylvania met at Uarrisburgoa Wednesday. Tbe Hon. Henry JL Fuller presided, and every Con gressional District in tbe State was repre sented. From all part of the State cheering acooants were received, and a strong dispo sition was manifested by Ibe members lor a anion of all national men against the Repub lican party, A committee was appointed to elect Presidential electors. Aaaaalta of tho Iw' " Got. Brown. . - la the Constitutional Union Convention which nominated Mr. Bell for the Presiden cy, Ex Gov. N. S. Brows made a speech. There was, at the time, great excitement, and much noise and confusion, in the Convention. It was not to have been expected that a speech, made under such circumstances, could be reported fully and correctly. Several re ports were made, all of which were faulty, more or less, and neither of tbem did justice to the speaker. He had no opportunity to revise either ot tbem. Under tbe circum stances, it would be manifestly improper to bold him responsible for what was reported. Nevertheless, some very ardent democrats, gentlemen of microscopic ' vision, blind guides who "strain at a gnat and swallow a camel," have taken a sentence from tbe body of tbe fpeech, and comment' upon it, im peaching . his loyalty to the . South. The Montgomery it ail, the zealous recruit drawn by the Breckixridoe-Yanceyttes from the Whig-American ranks, not to be out-done, follows the pernicious example. The lesson inculcated in its self-imposed duty of doing penance for its doubts of Mr. Brecxixridue's soundness on tbe question of slavery, predi cated upon tbe Tippecanoe speech, in 185G, ought to have made the Mail more circum spect, if not more charitable. But, until tbe Jfail has become "master of a situation" amongst its new atuciates, we shall not ex pect it to be either circumspect oi charitable towardd its late compatriots. Charity to any ot them now, before the shell has been en tirely removed from the newly hatched chick, might cause ita sincerity to be doubted ; aud that would be unpkasaul, to say the least of it. So, we will not ask it. But, tbe de tached sentence lrom Gov. Brown's speech. Here it is. Read it : I am oue of tbe men who say here iu tbe presence of my brothers from tbe North, and before the world, that I would not swap tbe Union of these States for all the nigner, and all tbe manufactories and all tbe railroads in this country, aud all tbe chips that swim tbe ocean. Candidly, what is there in this lo object to? How does it affect Gov. Brown' loyalty to tbe Soutb ! How does it show that he would not be prompt to stand by tbe South in the maintaimtuce of her rights that he would yield oue jot or tittle to the demand express ing iu strong and for able terms of northern sectionalism? It is only bis estimate of the value of the Union. He might own all the manufactories, all the ships all tbe railroads, and all negroes in tbe country, and be will ing to exchange tbem for a government wbicb lias been tbe source of so many blessings to bim, aud to tbe nation ; and yet not be willing to perpetuate that goverumeut at tbe cost of a single constitu tional right. Aud such is tbe case. Tbe ed itor of tbe Mud may own a hundred negroes, a be ouce owned a farm. Would be not, if bis life were in danger uud could thereby be saved, yield the lact one of tbem, and tbat farm too? Ot course he would. Yet, he might value bis life so much less thau bis honor, be would sacrifice it rather than sub mit to iusult or depradation- And this illus trates the position of Ex-Gov. Brown in re gard to tbe Union. There may be men in the South would yield up their rights to bold slaves, for the poor boon of preserving a Un ion in which they had become degraded. We have never seen one ; and we trust we may never see an American so lost to a sense of honor. We are quite sure there are no men cf this sort in Tenuessee. Her9 is not a soil that produces such characters. Neither is it a soil in wbicb disunionism thrives. Come up to Tennessee Mr. Mail, instead of going North, the next time you need an air ing, and mingle with our people. It will im prove your health physically and politically; and you will go home with a keen apprecia tion of tbe high qualities of Tennesseeans like Ex-Gov. Browx; and like Tom Marshall, when stricken with a conviction of the injus tice be had done Uenrt Clay, make atone ment for the course you are now pursuing. Lincoln looking to tub Bell Party, Sooth. Gov. Bebli, now ot Tennessee, and a stump orator of tbe Bell party in East Ten nessee, said in a recent speech (we find the fact in tbe Nashville Union,) "that if Lincoln should be elected President, iu the formation of his Cabinet, and in the selection of Fed eral officers taken irom the Soutb, he would look to ibe Bell party in the Southern States for bis material." Planters of Alabama! you will 'hear simi lar talk in AUtlxtma, it Liucolu shall happen to be elected ! Will the people ol tbe South stand such doctrine ? If so, slavery will not exist five years longer ! Montytiiery Mail. This is the greatest slur we have yet seeu ou the chivalry of tbe South. We tell the Mtil tbat tbe existence of slavery is not to be affected by such doctrines. Iu spite of North era abolitionists slavery will exist, securely exinl. in tbe Soutb, a hundred years hence. Have faith iu the iislUittion of your sunny clime, man, aud don't be blubbering like an overgrown clown every time some fellow lets off a speech that only shows himself an ass. If you go on iu Ibis way, every child in Montgomery ciiy and county will le laugh ing ut you. But, about those officeholders under Lin coln. Hear the Courier and Enquirer. It says that not long since a number of Southern Democrats met at the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York, tbat they took iDto consideration the probability of Lincoln's election, and agreed generally that he could not fill the federal offices in the South, and that tbe Union would, as a consequence, fall to pieces. A rich plauter from one of tbe lower South ern States, said ''Gentlemen, you are mista ken. The offices will be filled. You know I am a true Southern man, tbat all my inter ests are identified with the South tbat I am now an old man, and have never held or sought office. But, I would take charge of the Custom House at , and hold it un til Mr. Lincoln could do better. And so it will be elsewhere!" Now. Mr. Mail, this was not a Bell man, nor yet a Docgla man, but a Bkeckixriogk man. It was not one of those 'who3 noses are pointed in the direc tion of the federal swill troughs" "thank you, Jew, for teaching us these words" but a thrifty old planter, who cares nothing for of fice. And you may be sure tbat there will be hundreds of Democrats those "whose noses are pointed in the direction of the federal swill troughs," who will take all Lincoln may have to give. A misrepresentation Corrected. , ' . Woodbprt, Tens, Aug. 24th, 18C0. Editors op the Patriot Gent: On the 28th day of July last, when a portion of tbe Breckinridge democracy of Cannon County held a ratification meeting, and Governor Harris was speaking of the. equality of the States, I remarked that he and I were together on that doctrine, that I had always been of that belief, and that I bad always been a Whig. From what I said then, the report has been put in circulation that I was for Breckinridge. The Utuoa and American re ported the conversion of an old line Whig on that day. I suppose its informant alluded to me. I write you this note, that yod may say for me, that whoever circulates that report misrepresents my position. ,-. I believe tbe democrats report many pri vate men like myself, as converts to tbeir faith, thinking we will never deny it publicly. I am for Bell and Everett, and I never have yet seen our -party so' much of a unit in Cannon as now. Our men are warm in the good cause of tbe Union, the Constitution and the Laws. Backsliders are being re claimed every day, and good men are coming to us from the ranks of tbe democracy. I remain ery respectfully, yours, Ac, JOHN C. MARTIN. "Protection or Blood. Our readers will remember that the above words were quoted by us in one of our arti cles on the 'conspiracy to break op the Union, as the sentiment of Robert G. Scott, of Ala, uttered in a speech made by him at Rich mond, Ya., soon after the Baltimore Conven tions. .We did not say that Mr, Scott used those words, but we stid tbat be was "re ported" to have unfurled the Breckinridge banner with the war-cry of 'protection or blood.' We got that "report" from the N. Y. Exprtt. Our quotation of it bas drawn a letter from Mr. Scott,' dated -Flney Place, near Claiborne, Ala., Aug. 13, 1860," which we find in the Richmond Enquirer of tbe 21th inst. He says: 'I certainly never have in any address made by me at Richmond or elsewhere uttered the sentiment attributed to me in the Nashville Patriot." We thus give him the full benefit of bis denial. And inasmuch as our exposure bas created an un usual fluttering in the disunion camp, we beg to say here tbat it gave us much pain to Bee, iu the course of our investigations in pre paring that exposure, so many gentlemen of good character involved. Nothing ; would afford us greater gratification than to be con vinced tbat every one ot the "conspirators" had abandoned the treasonable sentiments therein attributed to them severally, and to bail tbem oue and all as true friends of the Union as it is. We were impelled to that in vestigation ond exposure by what we con ceived to be a solemn duty to our country; and while our owu self-respect, no less than our sense of justice, prompts us to note every denial or explanation which the persons in any way implicated may have to offer, that same convictiou of duty admonishes us to hold them to the strictest account, aud to guard against every effort to dodge or equivo cate. It is, therefore, tbat while giviug the denial of Mr. Scott, we beg to submit to our readers the following other passage from tbat letter, giving an outline of his views on the rights of the people iu the territories: "To these views I have added that so soou as this or any other Government shall fail or refuse, in any case whatsoever, effectually to afford the ample legal protection, which is due to allot its citizens, in tbe particulars referred to, tbe only remaining remedy for the wronged citizen, is to seek ond se cure the withheld protection," by his own strong arm. And this would be only accom plished too often, and ibat lamentably, by violence and blood. That iu the absence of all governmental protection, meu would seek, as best they could, the vindication of their rights of property, by brute force, and it became the wise and patriotic of all par ties, well to consider and calmly decide, shall this great and fundamental principle of pro tection be maintained and vindicated in all canes whetsoever aud in all places; or tbe dread calamity overtake na, of a people maintain ing tbeir constitutional rights by the use of the bowie-knife or rifle. It thus plainly appears, tbat, though Mr. Scott did not utter tbe seutiment in tbe words attributed to him, be plainly staled that unless the protection he insisted upon was granted, it would be secured "by vio lence and blood," and that the right would be maintained "by tbe use of the Bowie-Kxm-k or Rifle." He stales the case quite as strongly as the reporter for the N. Y. Ex press, and utters a sentiment substantially the same as that of "protection or blood." He places the alternative between protection and "violence and blood," and between pro tection and "the bowie-knife or' rifle." We, therefore, take Mr. Scott's letter as not only a vindication of the "reporter" of the Rich mond speech, but also as a substantial vindi cation of our use of it, as an impressive and appropriate finale to our exposure. Brethren Dwelling together la Unity. AN ELECTIONEERING TRICE. Charlotte, Aug. 21, 1860. Mr. Bcrch Dear Sir: Mr. Haywood re quests me to say that Mr. McCann charged to-day, that Gov. Harris, Messrs. QuarTes, Dunnington aud Burch went to Baltimore to advise secession from tbe Democratic Conven tion. Mr. Haywood demanded his authority for the statement. Mr. McCann said Harvey M. Watlerson authorized him to make the charge all round the district. I heard Mc Cann charge it. T. C. Morris. The charge above mentioned is absolutely false. Gov. Harris, Messrs. Quarles, Dunuington and Burch, however, fully approve ot the conduct of those of our delegates who with drew from the convention. Union and Ameri can, Aug. 23, 1860. The charge that Gov. Harris advised seces sion from the Democratic Convention is here in pronouncpd "absolutely false." Of "Messrs. Qcari.es, Dcnninuton and Blrch," in regaid to the matter of advising, we know notbing. But, in the Union and American of Sunday, July, 1st, 1SC0, giving a report ot the Breck inridge ratification meeting held in this city the day previous, we find the following in the report of Gov. Harris' speech on that occa sion: ' "When argument and persnasiou bad been exhausted, utterly failing to induce that con vention to place itself upon a sound national platform, and to declare those principles up on the maintenance of which depends the rights of every American citizen, as well as the perpetuity of the Government and fur ther, when the convention had resolved to override every principle of justice, as well as every usage ot the party, tor the purpose of excludiug from tbe convention the regularly appointed representatives of the Democracy of a number of States, for no other reason than their opposition to tbe nomination ot a single aspirant, I advised the Tennessee DELEGATION, SO FAR AS I WAS COXSCLTED. TO TAKE THE COURSE THAT HAS BEEN PURSUED bt them L e. lo secede. I APPLAUD them TO-DAY FOR HAVING DONE 60." As to the propriety of that secession, non nostrum taittas lUes componere. In other words, it is none of our business. But as to the questiou of fact in regard to the advising. Gov. Harris, if the Union and American report is to be credited, certainly did advise such ac tion. Whether he wen', there for that pur pose or not, bis going resulted tbat way. Yancey's Speech. Important Omis sion. The Memphis Avalanche publishes what pur ports to be a full report of Mr. Yancey's speech at that place on the 14th instant, but it is due to truth to affirm that a very impor tant part of tbe speech is not contained in the report of the Avalanche, Towards tbe conclusion of bis speech be made what we considered an appeal in favor of disunion on the happening of a certain contingency ; this part is left out of tbe speech as published. We are sorry of this, for if every voter could read tbe part to which we refer, the Breckin ridge cause would be materially damaged. Where is the remainder of the speech? The reporter took it down; did Mr. Yancey sup press its publication? However this may be, one thing is certain, and tbat is, the part to which we refer has not yet seen tbe light. Can it be explained why it was omitted? We think it was not permitted to appear in priut because it was manifest that it would injure the Breckinridge party. If this charge is in correct, let H be refuted by the production of that part of tbe speech which it seems has been consigned to an inglorious oblivion. Again we ask, where is it? Let it be pub lished. Somerville Democrat. .J, Since Mr. Yancey's speech has been adopt ed as a campaign document by the Breckinridge-Yancey Democracy of this State, it becomes a matter of some importance to sup ply the part, the suppression of which is dis closed by the Democrat. We have seen it stated tbat the speech, as delivered, bad tbe effect of opening the eyes of quite a number of men who bad been supporting tbe Mary land Institute nominees, and causing them to change. 'Whether or not it was a fear of other changes tbat led to tbe suppression, of coarse we cannot say. ' Fortunately, we can supply tbe suppressed passages. The "Ava lanche" was oot tbe only paper tbat reported the speeclu Tbe N. Y. "Times" had special reporter present, and, in the VTimes" of the 2 1st, we bare bis report. In tbe main it dif fers with the reporlrof the "Avalanche? bat little. It, however, contains, the passages suppressed in the "Avalanche" report. We copy them. They-come in after Mr. Y.'s comments on ' tbe Montgomery League, fol lowing immediately tbe paragraph commenc ing. "Rise np yon Bell and Douglas men." It will be noted that the inevitable tendency, if not the direct intention, of tbe?e passages is to bring tbe minds of bis bearers up to tbe standard of resistance and revolution. ( Tkey can mean' notbing else. ' Here they are! - ' There is not a word, a line, or a sentiment in that Constitution that every true patriot at the South, and at the North; too, don't in dorse. The- theory of tbat league prevails to-night to-day, and will prevail, I hope to God, in November next, and will rescue tbe country from tbe harpies who will feed on its very bowels. Such is "tbe military leaguer," and this League tbat makes me a disunionist, a Catiline, and a conspirator against our rights. , ...... . As far as disunion is concerned, Gov. Win ston, in a letter to the Legislature of my State, recommended tbat the Union should be dissolved; and, in a letter to Mr. Figures, he did the same thing. Mr. Figures has done the same thing. John Forsyth was also for disunion. Mr. Seibel, now a sabmissionist, was openly and avowedly a member of a dis unionist club. Herschel V. Johnson, the Douglas candidate for the Vice Presidency, was a disunionist member of a Convention, made disunion speeches, and yet, with these great and prominent members of the Doug las party, yet supporting Douglas, they charge tbat it bas no effect on the Douglas party. But as to myself, who support Breck inridge, my support makes him a disunionist, because 1 have said that we being refused our Constitutional rights, in tbe event of that I am for separating from tbe government of tbe higher law tbat is to be built on the Con stitution. I have not forgotten that there are lessons other tban tbat of Washiiie'u.i' farewell ad dress. I have not forgotten Washington's life, nor have I forgotten tbe lives of Han cock, Jeffersou, Patrick Henry, John Adams, aud that glorious baud of patriots who joined in the Revolution of '76. and carried it to a successful result. I have uot forgotten tbat Declaration of Independence tbat is now on record aud is thought to be tbe most precious of all political documents, t-';inding side by side with tbe Constitution, i i tbe regard of tbe enlightened patriot. I have not forgotten tbe traditions of tbat Declaration. 1 have been educated in the school of tlu Revolu tion. I was not taught to revere the toryisms of 1776 or of 1860, or to revere that coward ly submissiou to wrong vt bicb the lories en deavored to teach their countrymen of 177C. I kuow it is said to you, you are a prosperous people; you have thousands and hundreds of thouauds.and you may a fluid to have some of these constitutional rights of tbe Territories trampled upou, but you bad better preserve halt the loaf. "Half a loaf is better than no bread," wa3 the doctrine of Washington, or of Hancock. These men were worth thousands. Hancock bad bis ships at sea and bis ' stoics on land all pro tected by the British army and navy. Wash ington had bis hundred nesrroes and bis broad acres, and to bim the British Govern ment was not actually a Government of op pression. But the British Government, which was bis borne Government, that Government did trespass, as they believed, npon their constitutional privileges, and undertook to tax tbem three cents upon each pound of tea. I am told a pound ot tea a week would be a large allowance for almost any family to use, $1 56 a year. Washington, with $20,000 or $30,000 a yearly income, and Hancock, with his $40,000, and many other rich men could have lost that amount out of some little bole in tbeir pockets as tbey walked tbe streets, and not have known tbey bad lost it. Men in all ages are precisely the same. There are Washington now in this country, and God can raise ibem up in the hour of our coun try's need, when it is necessary to do so. There are Uaucocks and Adams now, and when the necessity comes the hour will show that the nerve of that day will be found now. Men are the same in all ages. They only differ as education makes them to differ. When there were men to creep up to Wash ington, and say, "You are the pet of the British Government don't dissolve the Union;" or to Hancock, saying "You have your thousands; don't for $1 5C a year launch forth into the sea of anarchy; if you do you will lose millions, and with a halter round your neck die tbe death of a traitor; you have not cannon uor foundries; you have not even a Governor." What was the answer of those men? We need not suppose what tbe answer was. Precisely such things were said, and those glorious men gave an answer, and that answer is upon the illuminated pa ges of history that have come down through tbe vista of a century and tbat answer lingers ou the ear of every man, and it is music to every man, and inspires bim with courage to do as his ancestors did. They an swered, we have got "millions for defence, but not one cent for tribute." Applause. Have you degenerated from that day ? Wben ttie Douglas and Bell men come to whisper in your ear and tell you. you have thousands aud thousands, tbat this we con tend for is a small matter and don't you risk it, what is Washington, Hancock and Adams to you, are tbeir lessons worth anything, or is the teaching of some Douglas man to be taken on this bead in preference to those of Washington? What did old John Adams say? The school boy kuews what be said, it is not a matter of conjecture, it is a matter of history; it is one of the glorious sayings tbat embalm the memory of our sires aud which will keep thiin embalmed. They are lessons taught us by these meu by seven long years of Buttering; thousauds of tbe lives of tbe gallant and good aud true were sacri ficed, iu older that these lessons should be bought. That old and noble patriot, catch ing inspiration from tbe God of battles, him self, said: "Siuk or swim, survive or perish, give me the Declaration of Independence." But the Douglas men, tbe Bell men, who know so much more than old Adams or Washington who are so much more patriot ic, so much more gifted iu true statesman ship and in patriotic wisdom tell you that it is treason Yancey is speaking; be is a con spirator. Precisely such a charge, too, was made during the Revolution. Washington was called a rebel. Old Carroll,' of Caroll ton, when be went forward lo sign the Dec laration, was told tbat be would escape, be cause there were so many Charles Carrolls in the State; aud then, when every drop ot ink was proclaiming tbat be was a rebel, be wi ote out in large and bold characters bis name, "Charles Carroll, of Carrollton." Old Pat rick Henry, to whom we are more indebted for the Revolution tban almost any man, wben freedom was young, when she bad to bide in tbe boles of the mountains, when she did not dare to show her banner before the British troops, there was oue bold patriot who dared to meet the power of the House of Burgesses of Great Britain. Wheu he was letting them know what were these truths, and putting them to tbe King, upon tbe throne, that he bad better beware ae Caesar once had a Brutus, many of these eubmissionists, these shriekers for govern mental union and power, those men of tbat day whose children are not all yet dead, dared call out "Treson, treason." "I tell you," Patrick Henry said, "I trust I yet have 6ome of the spirit in my veins to say in tbis ball, if tbis be treason make the most of it." Ail that tbe South asks, and all tbat I ask, and all that I have ever asked, has been tbat tbe compact which my fathers made with your fathers and their fathers, as the rule tbat they pledged themselves to see should guide them and their posterity in all times, in Government, in relation of the two sections, shall still be the rule of legislation between tbe two sections. But when there is a high er law abroad that will disregard this com pact, find it in the way of tbeir selfish pur poses, and trample it under foot a party getting possession of tbe mere constitutional form of Government, but in ntter destruction of ibe checks and balances of the Constitu tion .shall overturn tbe Government of Wash ington, and shall place in power a Govern ment utterly at war with it. I tell you, for one, I am absolved from all allegiance to that Government. My allegiance is due to the subverted Government, and although it may be in a minority, here is one man that will stand by it, . live or die. Enthusiastic cheering. j. : ; .. - 1 ?

" The substitution or tbe word "northern' ' for tbe word "other" makes a vast difference in fbe meaning and offrnsiveness of Mr. Yancey's remarks They meant that he had 'no faith" that Tennessee, Kentucky, Mis souri, Virginia and Maryland would -"stand-' up to the rights of tbe South ;" and were an insult lo the people of those States. The Union and American', in-1858, regarded it ia that light, and denounced it iu proper lan guage, although our contemporary now re publishes Mr Yancey's speech and offers it as'a campaign document : 1 v- 9Ir. Hrecklurldse'a Plea for becomlu "'" I JIountebanlc. f Iu bis letter accepting the invitation of re tainers of bU to make a speech, Mr. Breck inridge says . f It may be well to group together and refute, in a public and authentic manner, accusa tions remarkable for tbeir number, tbeir in justice, and the persistency with which they nave oeen urgea against me. X feel tbat it would be unjust to my principles, any triends, and myself, to remain longer in silence be neath this torrent of tbis defamation ; and I hope to repel every charge which has been made to tbe satisfaction of all candid and honorable men. Tbis then is his plea for laying aside tbe dignity of bis position, and consenting to play tbe part of a Presidential stump speaker. Is it a sound plea ? Is be the only candidate for the Presidency against whom "accusa tions remarkable for their number, their in justice and the persistency with wbicb tbey are urged," have been made? Have not all candidates for tbe Presidency, since the adoption of the constitution, experienced sim ilar treatment? Did not bis party pour tor rents of deformation upon Harrison, Clay, Taylor, Scott and Fillmore ? Was not Gen. Scott denounced most bitterly in 1852, be cause on bis journey from New York to Ken ucky on business, be made a number of speches, in response lo demands of his sup porters, speeches not of a partisan or politi cal character, as Mr. Breckinridge proposes to make? Are not Mr. Breckinridge's sup porters forming tenents of deformation now upon Douglas? Are they not slandering and and calumniating Jonx Bell in the foulest aud most disreputable manner ? Mj. Breck inridge's plea is not a sound one. It will not do. It is a mere pretext. He has not been subjected to one-tenth part of tbe "defa mation" which bis supporters are pouring up on Docglas and Bell. He bas been treated with more than usual respect and courtesy. If he speaks at all it ought to be to return thanks to his oppouents for the leniency ob served towards him. But, Mr. Breckinridge sees and feels his weakness. He sees and feels that he has not now the remotest chance for an election ; but he is vain enough to believe that he may by entering tbe canvass as a stumper in bis owu cause, do something to better his fortunes. This is the true reason for the course he has prescribed for himself. . But be cannot arrest tbe judgment of the people. He may speak every day until tbe election, and he will still be leaten. "Revolutions never go backward.", His doom is written; he cannot escape it.. OUK COHIUJSPONDKIVtK, River Ilnx, White County, Tenn., i August 22, 1860. Mr. Editor: To-day Col. T. B. Murray and Mr. Stanton, electoral candidates, ad dressed a very large crowd at this place, upon the political questions of the day. Col. Murray lead off iu a speech of one and a half hours, laboring bard to try to prove Mr. Bell unsound upon the slavery issues, and also tried to show him a disunionist Col. Murray is one of tbe ablest of his party, but his looks irnd manner shewed tnat he was upon untenable ground, and that he feared his antagonist. He never attempted to de fend Mr. Breckinridge's S.juatter doctrine, nor did he defend Yaucey & Co.. but said B. was not respousible for what they had Baid, and admitted he had said before the Baltimore Convention tbat be would support Douglas npon tbe Cincinnati Platform if nominated. Wben be bad taken bis seat, tbe invincible Syd. Stanton, tbe Boy Orator from the hills ol Old Jackson, rose, and after a few remarks to the ladies, and the voters of White for tbeir favors in tbe past elections, he pitched into Col. Murray and bis secession candidates and their leaders, in such a style as was never my good fortune to hear before. Stanton's speech was one worthy of a statesman of any age, although he is apparently but a boy, and has raised himself by bis owu exertions from obscurity. Yet be bas made a reputa tion in this Valley that others could not win ia years. He showed most conclusively that the Union party and Col. Bell were the only true party to be relied upon to save the country; vindicated Col. Bell Irom all the foul charges of favoring Republicanism ; showed from his speeches that he had always been in" favor of slavery and the true friend of theSontb. His witberiug rebuke of Ibe Yanceyites lor trying to dissolve tbe Union was as great a display of oratorical power as I have ever listened to; and then his appeal in behalf of tbe Union and tbe Constitution was most splendid, and brought the tears from tbe eyes of several gray haired fathers and mothers'. Col. Murray's 30 minutes rejoinder was a perfect floundering let-down, and Stanton's was. if anything, an improvement on tbe first speech. You may rc6t assured that the Union is safe in tbe bands of such men as Stanton, and that be is fully equal to bis task.- It was very amusing to witness tbe move ments of our very clever Judge and our ex compensation Congressman, and the bearded tcion (a son of another Judge,) scotching around for Murray, all apirants for the next Congressional race. But all did no good, for the unanimous voice of tbe honest masses was that Stanton bad bim, and was a mntch for all of them. " WHITE. ' Darbytille, Ohio, Aug. 26, '60.

HAG AN ILtS received Siiuoultaneoosly with its issue iu New Yoik, MARION HARLAND'S NEW BOOK, NEMESIS. By the Author of Hidden Path, Alone and Moss Sale. The scene of the story of A'emetis is laid ia tbe South. The time, the beginning of the present centu ry. The customs aud events of those days are traced with fidelity and spirit, yet so skillfully interwoven with the narrative, that the reader is nut wearied by statistics or dry historical details. Tbe bom. of any years ago seemed as fainiiiar to him as those be visited but yesterday, aud their inmates differ liule from the men and women with whom be associates daily. The pictures of humble life are graphic and refreshing. Ia no other work from the authors pen can there be found greater variety of incident, more artistic detenc&thiu of character, more earnestness of thought and rigor of description, and certainly no other contains a plot to striking in concejitum and so aUy managnl The reader cannot but remark bow irresislably yet naturaC y be is borne along by the tide of events. There is no need after he is once in tbe current to ex plain the ominous tittle tbat frowns at tbe top of the page. Before the Xemcsis is un vailed the reader feels her subtle influence, understanding by intuition that there are hidden springs and secret wires under tho feet and in the homes of the unsuspecting object of her vengence add the pertinent motto of Uie autboreri fully proves that retribution though soraluues slow i always sure. Abo a fresh supply of the , I11DDEX PATH.

Foster this gifted daughter of the South with the expandinf sunshine of appreciation aud refreshing dews of praise. Stimulated undeveloped genius, to walk In ner steps, emulated her achievements, show her honors, and the cry that the Sooth has no literature, is silenced fore ever.
