Till: .CURRENT RECORD.
, Desiring to make a liibfal record of pas-
. ing poliicl events, we Eutjoin extracts from
the Messages of the uovernors fi ouuiu v,a
Txoiinm, Mississ-ippi ni North Carolina, to-
- their ' respective Legislatures m respect to
the extraordinary political condition of our
-- national affairs:
7 The Legislature Laving convened in regu
lar session on the 26th nit., Gov. Gist sent
in a lengthy message, from which we extract
"In looking forward to the separate na
tionality of South Carolina, many change
will have to be made in existing laws, a part
of which too, no docbt. will be directed to

be improper to bring to your notice tb lm
portance of a spe 4j postal art angement to

that the Postmaster at Cbarlt-eto'i, II m. At

Tnere seems to be nothing in the proposi

the Stale determines to keep up her supply ot
arms, it cannot be better duue thau by the
plan proposed. Copies of lelt rs from the
Governors of Georgia and Alabama, to M..j.
Eipley, were seul to me. Tney approve vt
tbe proposition, and promise to recommend
to their Legislatures-to bind themw-lves to
take annually fifty thousand dollars' worth

same finish and description; pro tided thej
axe of the lateat and most approved military
patterns, and manuUc tared ia one of tne
States mentioned. I would therefore recom
mend that South Carolina bind herself to take
fi:tv thousand dollars' worth of arms annual
ly, for five years, from Mj. Ripley, npon the
conditions mentioned above, and that a nego
tiation be opened between the three States to
etil- on the rile for the Armory. -

it is too late now to receive propositions

The existence or abortion of African
laveiy in the S tutheru States is now up lor
ii.ial Si tth-meiit belore lhat tribunal which
lias exclusive jurisdiction the p-ople of the
-southern Stales where it exists. It is true,
that the ioims of a trial have been
had. befoie the people of the non--lavehold-iiig
States. The institutions of the South
have been dragged before that tribunal, in
violation of every principle of the Constitu
tion and of common sense, and tried b- fore
a Court having no juri-Kjiction, and a jury
iguoiant of the law and the facts: and tbe
verdict thus obtained is, that slavery is sin
ful and must be d --strayed. We are told
thnt this verdict will be executed, lhat the
Northern mind will n-ver rest sitisfied until
slavery is i laced in such a condition as will
insure its ultimate extinction, and that all
the power the Southern States now have in
the final settlement of this matter, is t;
choose whether it shall be a peaceable and
gradual abolition or speedy atid violent.
These are the hard terms offered to fifteen
States of this Confederacy as if they were
conquered and not co equal States, as if the
supnior numbers of the Northern States
gave them the Constitutional right to regu
late tbe domestic affairs of the Southern
States without cousulting their wishes and
against their consent.
submission to 6uch a rule establishes a
despotism, under which the dearest rights of
he South-rn States are held at the suffer
ance of a people, ignorant of their wants
and hostile to their lights. If tbey were
houest and just, tbey are so utterly ignorant
of the capacities and necessities of the two
races which inhabit the Southern section of
ibis Confederacy, as to rei I'er it impossible

Tbat Mississippi may be enabled to soeak on
this grave subject ie her sovereign fcpaeity,-
x recommend mat a loavenuou be called to
meet at an early day. The Siate thus assem
bled win have a right to decide for itself the
mode ami measure of redress; for all viola
tions or tbe rights of her citizens or the
rights of the rights ot the State, either by
the Northern States, the people of the North
ern stales, or the rederal Government.
It ftW Government! is to-day in more imi
nent perilthan at any time since Washing
ton crossed the Delaware. That danger ari
ses not from tbe fact tbat Mr. Lincoln is to
be president for the nert four years: that,
were it unattended by other threatening cir
cumstances, would be a matter of small mo
ment. Uut when it is remembered tbat a
struggle has b?en going on, between the two
great sections of the Confederacy, for forty
years, the North struggling for domination,
for the power to iojnre and oppress the South,
tbe Southern States defending their existence
as equals in tbe Confederacy, asking nothing
but what was given by tbe Constitution and
guaranteed by oaths; and when that domi
nant, hostile. Northern section has attained
numbers sufficient to place itself permanent
ly iu the ascendant, aod add tbe powers of
tbe federal Government to its means of op
pression, well may we regard this as the
great danger that constrains men of all par
ties in the couth to bury parly feuds and
bind together fir defence. Our deliverance
Irom this great danger, in my opinion, is to
be found in the reserved rights ol tbe fatates,
to withdraw from inmrv and oppression,
which was retained by those who formed this
jovernmen', lor just sucn an emergency rs
this. Embodied in the reserved rights of the
States, is the soul of American lib.-rty tbe
great saving principle to which alone the
Southern States cau look and live. This sa
ving principle must perish under Black Re
publican rule. Then go down into Egypt
while Ilerod reigns in Judea, it is the only
means of saving the life of this Emanuel of
American politics, and wh-jn in alter years it
shall be told you, 'hat tht-y who sought the
lite of this Prince o' Peace and Irateruily are
dead, yen may come up out ot Egypt, and
realize all the fond bopt s ol patriots aod sa
ges, of peace on larth and good will among
mt-n, under tbe benign influence of a re-uuit
ed Government, deriving its just powers
from ih- consent of th- governed.
That th- State of Mississippi may evince
to her Southern sister States lb- interest she
fei-U iu the common danger, I recommend
hat comtni-siout-r8 le appoinw-d to vii.it such

or call conventions to lake into con-idera-
tion the lb

and w- in) ham in lb- most authen

I rtcoinm-nd that an appropriation be
made, io each voluuteer Company, ot a sufH
cieiii sum io piy all reasonable exp-nses at

and t qnipmeuts. so that the young m-n who
give tiieir liin- and undergo the labor of pre
paring tbem-elve as soldiers to defend the
rights of the Stftes may uot be required to
expend one dollar of their privut- menus. I
r ccoinmend that a coal of arms be edopteo
for the State of Mississippi. In view of the
unsettled condition ot our political affairs,
and the probable great derangement of mon
etary aud commercial relations of the coun
try, and to prevent ibe ruinous sacrifice of
the prep -rtv of the people of this State, I
recommend that an act be passed staying the
bringing of suits aud the collection ol debts
by execution sales, until tbe close of the
Utxt regular session of ihe Legislature.
As it is more than probable tbat many of
tbe citizens ol the border States may seek a
market for their slaves in the cotton States,
I recommend ihe passage ot an act prohibit-
ng the introduction of slaves into this State
unless tbeir owners come with them and be
come citizens, and prohibiting tbe introduc
tion of slaves for sale by all persons whom
Permit me, in conclusion, again to refer to
the great danger Id tbe State wbich has
brought you from your homes, and to exhort
my countrymen not to be "caught by the
fatal bait ot temporary ease and quiet," not
to submit to great, digracetul and certain
evils from a dread of others which may prove
lo be lrnagiaary. If we falter now, we and
our sons must . p y tbe penalty in tuture
years, of bloody if not fruitless efforts to re
trieve tbe fallen fortnnes of the State, w hich
if finally unsuccessful must leave our fair
land blighted cursed with Black Republi
can politics and tree negro morals, to become
a cess-pool of vice, crime and infamy.
Can we hesitate I when one bold resolve,
bravely executed, makes powerless tbe ag
gressor, and one united effort makes safe our
homes? May the God of our taters pnt it ia
the hearts of the people to make it.

After dealing with matters of State con
cern merely, and referring to the subject of
difference between the two great sections of
tie Union, and some of the events prejudi
cial to the South growing out of that differ-
edce,the Governor closes as follows:
'It is true Abraham Lincoln is elected
President according to th- forms of the Con

Third was the rightful occupant of tbe Bri'-

man because ol any detect oi bis title to tbe
crown, but against the more substantial fact,
tbe tyranny of bis Ministers and Parliament.
Tbrt power "behind the throne," and which
in the name of the throne attempted to de
prive them of tbeir liberties, is the one with
which they grappled. So it is with us It is

lely a item pl d, yet, an eflort to employ the
military power ot the General Government
gainst oue ot tbe bouibero Stales would
present an emergency demanding prompt and
decided action on our part. It cau but be
mani-est that a blow thus aimed at oue of
tbe Southern States would involve tbe whole
country in a civil war, tne destructive con
sequences ot wnica ui us eouid ouly be con
trolled by our ability to resist tnose engaged
in waging it. .
"Tbe civilization or tne age, surely. ought
to be a sufficient guarantee tor tbe prevention
of so great a calamity as intestine war, even
though, amid political coarges ot tbe magni

and not of force; and the employment of mil
itary force to control the popular will .would,
if successful, result in a galling and inexora
ble despotism. - ..
The prevention, then, of civil war and the
preservation of peace amongst us are the
great objects which North Caroliua should re
eolvenpon securing, whatever changes the
Government may undergo.
; Ia view vt the perilous condition of the
country, it is, in my opinion, becoming and
proper that we should have some consultation
1 with those States identified with us in interest
and m the wrong we have suffered ; and espe
cially those lying immediately adj tcent to us.
As any action of ours would of necessity ma
terialry affect them, it would be bat consist
ent with the amicable relations that have
ever .existed between us to invite , them to
a consultation npon a question that so deeply
affects us all. From a calm and deliberate
consideration ot tbe best mode to avoid dan
ger, much good might result, and no evil
-In thus proceeding we would show to the
world a disposition to exhaust every peacea
ble remedy for the solution of our difficulties,
and a firm determination to maintain our
rights Ma tbe Union if possible, and out of
it if necessary.'
"Such a step, too, wouldbe bnt a becoming
mark of respect to that considerable portion
of the people of the non-slavebolding Stales
who have ever been disposed to acknowledge
us as equals in tbe Union, and who have, on
many occasions, gallantly struggled to secure
our constitutional rights.
"I, therefore, respectfully recorurnond that
you invite the Southern States to a confer
ence, or such of them as may be inclined to
enter into consultation with us upon the pre
sent condition of th country. Should such
a conference te found impracticable, then 1
would recommend the sending of one or
more delegates to our neighboring States
with the view of securing concert of action.
"I also think that the public safety requires
a recurrence to our own people lor an ex
pression of th;ir opinion. The will of the
p ople once expressed will be a Ijw of action
with all, and secure tbat unanimity so neces
sary in an emergency like the present.
'I, therefore, recommend lhat a convention
of the people of tbe Stale be called, to as
semble immediately after the proposed con
sultation with other Southern States shall
have U-rminatt d.
The subject of our military defences will
require your early attention. I would re
commend a thorough reorganization of the
militia ar,d the enrolment ol all persons be
tween the ages of 18 and 45 years. Wiih
such a rtgula ion our muster roll would con
tain near a hundred aud teu thousand men.
"I would also recommend the formation of
a corps of ten thousand v luut ers with an
orgauiz I'iou separate from the main body of
tbe militia, and that they be suitably armed
"That your proceeding miy be conducted
in a spirit f harmony and c-mcili uioti, and
that th-y will r. dound to the honor aud wel

There was a public tu e'ing in tbe city of
Memphis on Saturday night last, in accord
auce with tbe recommendation ot several
geutlemeu of this city publisht d some days
ago. A number of resoluti.ms Were pre
sented, which were read aud referred, with
out d- bate, to a committee appointed for
the purpo-e. After tbe committee bad re
tired, speebes were made by Col. Paixe, Col.
Collins, Col. Tuokstox, C d. Cakkoll, G ti.
LouwuoD, Col. Looxkt, Dr. Borland and
Mr. Lek. The committee returned, aud made
two report, tbat of ihe m-tjoriiy was pre
sented by Edwin PicKtrr, Jr., that of the
minority by Col. Jonx Maktix the former
being tbe more ultra. Whereupon, Col. W.
K. POstox, presented a series of resolutions
independent of the committee. We have the
subjoined account cf what followed from the
Avalanche, the only Memphis paper which
reached us yesterday:
"The resolutions of Col. Poston were re-'
ceived with applause, when great couiusion
eusued. Fiuaiiy partial order was restored,
and the Cbairmau took the vote on Col Po -
ton's resolutions. The ayes seemed to have
it by ' a large majority, but the Chairman
fajled to make auy announcement of tbe vote.
Confusion again prevailed, during which the
Chairman said that if the spirit of restive
ness evinced was auy iudex to their feelings,
the Lord have mercy upon the Yankees when
tbat meeting came to face them. A division
was called for, aud the meeting was abktd to
divide, but the confusion was very great, iu
the midst of which the Chair agaiu put the
vote viva voce on the resolutions of Col. Pos
ton with the majority report added, aud this
was declared carried. Pending a motion to
adjourn, si ill greater commotion eusued,
mauy persons declaring lhat they bad only
voted tor Poslon's resolutions, and others on
the outside, who had gone without the bar
for a division as first called for, contending
tbat a hundred like themselves, did not uu-der-taud
the question as last put by lh?
Chairman, and did not vote at all. After
clamoring about the misunderstanding for
some time, the meeting, amid great fcoise
and conlusiou, dissolved. We have never
seen amore boisterous meeting, or one in
which good order was more outraged.-'
It is proper to add that all the resolutions
favored the calling of the Legislature togeth
er, and a Convention of the State.
Vermont Personal Liberty Law. The
Legislature of Vermont has refused to repeal
the personal liberty act of that State. The
vote was. yeas 58, (33 Democrats, 25 Repub
licans;) nays, 123, all Republicans.
TnRorGU to Decatcr. The Railroad hav
ing been finished from this place to Decatur,
Ala., trains are running through daily with
out breaking connection. This is now the
shortest route to Memphis and New Orlem.-,
and large numbers of pas-engers are availing
themselves of its advantages. The road is in
excellent Condi ion, and supplied with Gr.-t
class cars and machiueiy. It bids fair to be
one of the most successful roads in the South.
Reaction. A special el-etion was held on
the 27th ult. in the E ghth Miudl.-s. x district,
composed of the towns ol Ne-vAon aiid Brigh

The Washington correspondent of N. Y.
Times, says it is known In Washington that
an article which appeared in the Lexing
ton Statesman some days since, was written
by John C. Breckinridge. In this article
the ground was taken tbat there was "no
just cause lor revolution" that Kentucky
wonld not surrender the Union, but would
cling to it "with the devotion of the true socs
of '76." The following is the most import
ant paragraph of tbe article : 7 . .
"To our Southern friends we wonld earn
estly appeal to await the . full development
of Lincoln's policy, before striking the fatal
blow to the Union. Kentucky is a border
State, and, as such, tbe first aod greatest suf--terer
by abolition ascendency. Our State is
a barrier of protectien to the cotton States
against J anti-slavery aggressions. Our
friends in the Sootn can certainly bear the
administration of Lincoln as loug as we can.
Then, let them hetd the voice of Kentucky,
stand true lo the Union and not exhaust all
hope of yet maintaining tbe Constitution.
The Democracy of Kentucky, those men who,
in the support of Mr. Breckinridge, have
given earnest of their fidelity to tbe rigbts
ot the South, will appeal to the South to
give up whatever movements are now in
contemplation, and, like patriots, uphold the
Constitution and the Union. Do this, and
ail may be well."
