Xlie Beggarly Shifts of the Siaunion-
The extremists of the South, it seems,home
bausted their catalogue of denunciations of
Messrs. Bell and Everett. They have ac
cused them both of unsoundness, of abolition
. sympathies, of everything calculated, in their
opinion, to weaken them in the estimation of
the Southern people. They have been an
awered and expos-d. They have been put to
route on the hustings, in the newspapers, ev
erywbere. And as a final resort they are
attempting the game of intimidation on the
friends of Bkix and Everett. They have
played card after card and lost trick after
-trick, until within two weeks of the election
and now are aiming to frighten the men who
cherish an affection for the Uuion, aa it wa
handed down by the fathers, from its defence

Of Mr. BRECXirRiDGE, in the State of Louisi
ana, in its impression of the 19th inst.:
But these leaders (for Bell and Everett)
are doomed; let them mark that. Unless
they intend to join openly our sectional ad
versaries, ihey had better be recanting and
going on their kuees to ask forgiveness and
reconciliation at the hands of the Suuth. Un
less they are prepared to commit overt as
well covert treason, let them look to their
fate hereafter. If they can slink from pub
lic execration into obscurity, they will be
fortunate. If they can hide in 'some bound
less contiguity of shade,' and thus save their
names from being gibbet ted on the climax of
scorn and inlamy, they will be thrice hap
py." They, in effect, tell us the present oppo
nents of Breckinridge will be gibbettei with
out benefit of clergy. Having secured, as
they fondly believe, the election of Lincoln,
as they laid down their programme and di
rected their best energies to do, they are Dow
industriously, though covertly, playing the
last act in the drama, preliminary to the
grand tragedy of revolution. They have
known from the outset that, in addition to a
Republican triumph they were bound tohsve
a majority of the Southern people to vote
their ticket, before they could risk the bloody
step of disunion, A mfjority vote lor Bell
la the Southern States would baulk all their
plans and leave them high and dry on the
barren shores of defeat. They would cot
dare inaugurate a revolution in the face of
an ascertained majority against them iu the
Sooth. And knowing that Breckinridge
now has not the shadow of a chance for elec
tion, they are endeavoring to rally a majori
ty of the votes of the South in his behalf, thus
not only weakening the conservative Uuion
ranks, but rendering Lincoln's election more
certain, and paving the way to the speedy
achievement of the primary object of disun
There is but one way lor the people, the
honest, conservative, patriotic masses to

is by rallying to the polls, and speaking

pursued by the enemies of the Union. Such
threats as those launched by the Courier are
absolutely contemptible. We only notice

for diunion. He is preparing: the minds of

disunion as a positive good. He says that
"he thinks Lincoln's election already settled.

as an expression of popular sentiment.
Jackson Democrats of Alabama, do you hear
what this bold precipitator says I II you
vote for Breckinridge you are committed to
open secession. Are you willing to rush
madlv out of the Uuion before the Southern
States have met iu convention and decided
this question. Mr. Pugh thinks and boldly
declares that " disunion is not an evil, but
a positive good." Do the people of Alabama,
and especially of the Northern part of the
State, where the body, and life, and soul of
the old line Democracy reside, believe that
dim u ion is a positive good." Aye, do the
honest men who have been betrayed into the
Breckinridge rank, believe that by support
ing that ticket they are bringing disunion
upon themselves! Mr. Pugu thinks that the
supporters of Breckinridge will all join in
the mad cry of di.suniou. Does he speak for

denies the voft impeachment,' and the En

backs the Ennuirer, and adds, that the offer

again, as follows

Wc have heretofore published the pledge
under -which organizations of Minute Men
are being formed in South Carolina and Ala
bama. We learn from the Columbia South
Carolinian that there was recently a parade
of these men in Columbia. The Carolinian
says of it
On last evening, the organization of the
Minute Men of Richland marched in torch
light procession through the principal streets
of the city. There were about three hundred
in ranks, making a very imposing and bril
liant display. They each wore a red scarf,
with the letters M. M. imprinted ou it. The
organization is rapidly extending through
the fctate and the South. It is designed as au
organization for the preservation of the in
terests and institutions of the South, and tlie
formation of a Southern Confederacy. The re
cent elections will doubtless stimulate its
growth, and we would not be surprised if, in
a month, with proper drill and discipline, it
furnii-hts au army strong enough to maintain
any independent move that may be made by
the Southern States."

The Statesman and the S-oIdler.
Count Cavour message to the Sardinian
house of deputies, is the most statesman like
paper which Italian politics has elicited, from
the outbreak of the Piedmontese war, until
the present time. It is at once broad and
patriotic, firm and temperate; it is politic,
generous and forbearing; personal feeling
u nooiy mergeu in we puoiic interest, and it
is especially remarkable for its recognition
of ultimate moral principles. Highly as we
have estimated the abilities of the Sardinian
minister, and much as we have respected the
chivalric nobility of his character, we were
not prepared for a paper evincing a wisdom
so comprehensive, and which mast give him
ine nrst ranK among living statesmen.
' The highest evidence of ability is afforded
by tne statesman wno can judge impartially

Cavonr speaks of the great movement of his

in such a minister. The heroic bnt impuls

that straightened and restrained him. In
the presumption of success, like the prince
in the fable who sought to draw off the
troublesome magic ring, the dictator de
manded the dismissal of the prudent minis
ter. Cavour was too great to be angry ; he
felt proud of the glory of Garibaldi ; while
the latter as just at heart as he is hasty in
impulse soon acknowledged his error and
the unanswerable strength ot the minister a

dence which both acknowledge sent the hap
py repulse or Capua; at tne moment worth
more to Garibaldi and to Italy than a victo
ry. This salutary and deoidid check helped
his better reason.
Cavour says, in effect: while we painfully
sympathize with the people of Rome and
V enice, we can only help them by strength
ening and consolidating what we have train
ed. We must leave something to that neces
sity of event, which will bring about a har
monious result in process ot time. Treat
ing the opinion and feeling of Garibaldi with
generous courtesy, be goes on to show that
the provisional and revolutionary state in
Naples and Sicily must be changed for a
regular and stable government, before fur
ther operations can be conducted with the
least hope of success. What he relies upon
to work for the deliverance ot Rome and Ve

of the prosperity of the other provinces upon
the people of those states, and the probable
change in the attitude of Napoleon as the
protector of the Pope, making the (independ

The respect which Cavour manifests for
Napoleon, while it is politic, commends itself
to I he better feelings of all who know what
moral obligation is. If gratitude was ever
due for a service which made the difference
between independence and slavery, it is due
from Sardinia to France and Count Cavour
honorably acknowledges the debt. It is
much the fashion to cavil at Napoleon's mo
tives, and it is easy to argue that they were
selfish. But, however that may be, the fact
remains that Sardinia owes her independence
to the gallantry ot France. Cavour is not
willing to incur the penalty of ingratitude
by rushing upon destruction. "In our pres
ent circumstances, to confront the French
troops," Bays he, "would be not merely un
heard ol folly ; it would be grievous iault
lbe part of the message, however, which
shows most clearly that the mind of the Sar
dinian minister has grasped the subject ot
Italian liberty in its broadest view, is that in
which he reters to the f opish see. We quote
a part of the paragraph:
' 1 he question of Rome is none of those
which can be solved by the sword alone. It
meets on its way moral obstacles only to be
overcome by noral forces; and we are fully
confident that, sooner or later, those forces
will bring into the gates ot that glorious me
tropolis a change consistent with the wishes
of its people, with the aspirations of all good
Italians, with the true principles and the
lasting interests of Catholicism."

completed with all possible dispatch, as it is
entirely graded except some two or three

is in a very forward state; the piers are above

Messers Editors: A few years since,
spent twelve days in traveling with a gentle
man from Europe; andaa we were somewhat
alike we learned as mnoh as we conld from
each other, our books and papers, and we
both came to the conclusion that Stone Coal
was one of the greatest powers to give wealth
and strength to a Nation j sod without it Great
Britain would be dependant upon others; and
if the people of this country would act wisely
we would be the greatest nation on the globe.
From what we could learn, the coal fields of
the world are distributed as follows: United
States, 196,000 square miles of area; British
North American Provinces, 7,530; Great Bri
tain, 5,400; France, 984; Prussia, 960: Bel
gium, 510; Bohemia, 400; Spain 200; Russia,
190. The extent of the Pacific and Asiatic
coal fields is unknown. From these geolog
ical coal statistics it is not difficult to predict
what country is destined to be the future mis
tress of the world in wealth and power. If
little England, by the aid of her coal, has
obtained such control of the world, what
conld we do if we would let each other alone
and do as England has done? I fear we will
act like the Lion and the Bear and let the
Fox get the prize.
I sometimes think England is aiding the
demagogues in drawing our attention from
those things that would make us great and
independent; as such, I think we would do
well to examine some of the hints given us
THE LIOH AND THE VOtTR BULLS.
Four Bulls whioh had entered into a very
strict inenaship, kept always near one an
other, and fed together. The Lion often
saw them, and as often had a mind to make
one of them his prey; but, though he could
have subdued any of them singly, yet he
was afraid to attack the whole alliance, as
knowing they would have been too hard for
him, and therefore contented himself for the
present, with keeping at a distance. At
last, perceiving no attempt was to be made
upon them as long as their combination held,
he took occasion, by whispers and hints, to
foment jealousies and raise divisions among
them. This stratagem succeeded so well
that the bulls grew cold and reserved to
wards one anotner, which soon after ripen
ed into a downright hatred and aversion:
and, at last, ended in a total separation.
The Lion had now obtained his end: and, as
impossible as it was for him to hurt them
while they were united, he found no diffi
culty now they were parted, to seize and
devour every bull of them, one after another.
THE APPLICATION. .
The moral of this fable is so well known and allowed.
that to go about and enlighten it. would be like hold in?
a candle to the sun. A kingdom divided aaaitut itself
cannot ttand, and as undisputed a maxim as it as, was
however thought necessary to be urged to the atten
tion of mankind, by the best men that ever lived.
And since friendships and alliances are of so great im
portance to our well being and happiness, we cannot
be too often cautioned not to let them be broken by
tale-bearers and whisperers, or any other contrivance
of our enemies. - .
Manchester, England, is the greatest man
ufacturing city in the world. The steam
force employed in its various mills and facto
ries amounts to 1,200,000 hone power. To
produce this enormous motive, 20,000 tons
of coal are consumed every twenty-four hours,
or 9,300,000 tons in tho 313 working days of
the year. - ' '
The power of one horse Is equal to six
men, ana steam ana nre wore wiinout rood
and never tire, and they have made little
England able to bay our stocks and State
bonds, and I don't blame her for trying to
control us, so as to keep us as hewers of wood
and drawers ot water for ber. '

The Greatness and i Decline
From Ute French of llonore de . JJahac.
O. XT. WIGHT & T. K. UOODRICH,
In one Elegant Volume, 12aio, Cloth.
Bctm t CasLETOlt have got out the first of their se
ries of the novels of HosoKt pk Balzac translated by
Messrs. O. W.Wiuar and F. B. Goodrich, both gentle
men Divorably known iu connection with original and
translated works The present is entitled " The Great
ness aud Decline orCcsar Birrotteau," and the transla
tors introduce it with the following Preface : " That
he Novels of Honore de Balzac " "sava th Londui
Critic, are immeasurably the greatest works or Ihev
kind that Friace indewl, we oukl suid,' any olher
country has ever seen, does not admit of. the Hlight
est dispute. That they go deeper into the human
heart, represent more truly the human passions, and
redect with greater accuracy the phasaa of human life,
than aay other novelist has ever been able to do, im
admitted by all who know anything about the matter.
Some may object that there are featurus in his comio
silions which render them undesirable subjects of
study to the young and pure. To this we reply that
we are not of that opinion. Bulzac bmcket vice but -to
scourge Iter; he drags her forth into tile light of day,
sets her up in the pillery, and calls nor by the right
name. We believe that so Cir from having a demoral
izing effect, the careful ai:d thoughtful erusal of Bal
sac's writings can have no other result than to increase
the love of virtue aud the dread of vice "
