Col. N. G. Tatlob, of East Tennessee,
Elector for tbe State, will deliver an ad
dress, in tbe Representative Hall, at the
Capitol, at 7 o'clock, this evening, Decem
ber 5th, on tbe political questions which
axe now engrossing public attention. The
people, without respect to party,te invited

This question is ofien asked us but we
have no answer to make, for the reason that
we know nothing of the Governor's inten
tions on this sul j cL "We bear of no oppo
sition from any part of the State, nor from
any party, to the preposition to call tbe Gen
eral Assembly together. Whether be will
wait till all the counties of tbe State bold
primary meetings and request him to take
the step, we know not. The Governors of
Virginia, North Carolina and Uissia-ippi
have, each, recommended a conference of the
Southern States, a measure org) d by those
who favor tbe calling of our Legislature to
gether in extra session. It occurs to us as
highly expedient and proper that Tennessee
should respond. It 'occurs to as also that
Got. Habkis ought to be satii-fiVd by fhis
time that it is required of Tennesst-e to do
something. It ought to be further known to
him, from the ordinary channt-ls of informa
tin. that such Ls the sentiment of tbe pecpl;
Oi the State. We now propound the ques
tion so often put to us: Will he convene the
Legislature i.i extra session?
The Rupture In lue Cabinet.
There have lxen many reports at various
times that tbe Cabinet of Mr. Ecchanan was
on the eve of being broken up. It now st ems
to be generally conceded that Mr. Cobb will
withdraw in a day or two. nd that be will
be fallowed by Secretaries Floyd, of Virgin
ia and Thompson, cf ilis-is-ippi. The re maining
mcmtu r Irjm tie Sniitbei n Sta'e-.
Mr. HoLT, of K-n'lickv. appears to l.e so
absoitxd in the Po i OflL-- D--p-n tm-m
that be 1ms not bad lime to attend u ihese. 11'
tie out-ide m vetnents. Kiom ba wo can
learn, it is probable tli;it Mi. Cobb will r.--tire,
and that he w ill be fuliouol by Mr.
Thompson-, and. p-eiLlv, by Mr. Flotd.
Tbe prospect that the last hour of Mr.
Bcchinan's administration will be as gloomy
as were the firct ones bright, is exceedingly
favorable. But tbe extent to which the wel
fare and perpetuity cf the Union are involv
ed in these troubles, is anything but gratify -log
to the patiio 's heart.
Jlr. Secretary Cobb.
For several dajR rumors havo preva'Jed
that Mr. Ci eb, of Ga., is about to r sign his
position in tbe C.ibinet of Mr. EccHiXAN, on
accocnt of his difiereiices with the President
on the snbj'-ct of the abstract rigtit of seces
sion. The Quid Aunc' in and about Wash
ington, especially those whose djily bread
depends upon furnisbiug something attractive
for the newspapers, have held ih matter up
in every p sible light and ascii''d to it ev
ery possible motive. Some say Mr. Cobb has
bankrupted the Federal Treasury, aiid wi-h-es
to fli e from the tumbling ruin", and "tl e
wrath to comef Others, that he d- sires to
be elected to tbe Senate frtm the State ot
Georgia, and goes borne to check-male the
intrigues of some of his i?ciivc opponents in
that State: Others still, th t he is thoroughly
imbued with the secession spirit and wants
to go to the Georgia Convention, to aid in
disrupting the Union: While others yet, say
that he is near the end of his terra of service
in Washington, and having a serious repug
nance to being laid on tbe shelf by staying
at tbe Capitol till Lixc lx is inaugurated,
goes home to be ready for anything that may
turn up. Tbey all agree, however, that he is
about to give np his place in the Cabinet.
Action of ITIlasiSklppi.
The Legislature of M'ssissippi adjourned
on the 30th nlL, having passed a bill provid
lag for a State Convention, and adopted re
solutions appointing Commissioners to other
States. The junior editor of the Memphis
Avalanche, Mr. Clcsket, who was present du
ring tbe sitting of the Legislature, says the
feeling in favor of secession was unanimous,
but 'that there was "a minority which on the
issue of co-operation or separate State action
would have strongly favored the former,'
but "the discussion of the question of sepa
rate State action was not regarded as a prac
tical one, as there was no one who believed
that a contingency would arise which would
present Mississippi as withdrawing by her
self. Indetd, the assurances were so strong
that South Carolina would go out on the
18th of D-cember, that Georgia, Alab tni i.
and other Cotton States would follow her.
that tbe idea of Jlis.-is.-ippi being placed in
an anomaly of going out by herself if she
took a decided stand, was not contempla
ted." The resolutions mentioned above, request
the Governor "to appoint as many Commis
sioners as in his judgment m 7 be nece.-.-ary
to vUit each of tbe slave holding S at-s, and
designate the State or S ate to which eac:.

The Convention law provide for the clrc
tioa of delegates on Monday, tbe 20; b day ot
December, 1860 giving each county as many
delegates as it has representatives in tbe po
pular branch of tbe Legislature. The dele
gates are required to asstmble at the Capital
on tbe 7ih day ot January next, and to "pro
ceed to consider tbe then existing relations
between the Government of tbe United States
and the Government and people of Mi-sissip-pl,

If 1 am correct in the belief that all, or
nearly all, of the people of the Southern
States agree in. viewing these acts of the
Norib'-m States as vrongns disloyal to the
G- n ral G'-vernment. and unjust to the South
then upon this ngrument I found a belief tbat
wt- can, as reas' liable men, abandon our an
tagonisms, aod divest ourselves of our unkind
and unjust suspicions against each other, so
that vv miy be enabled and inclined to
hold disp s-ionate. free and fraternal coun
sels, and thus Bgree upon a common state
ment of our wrongs; a common mode of se
curing our rights, a common line of conduct,
in the event ot failure to secure our rights,
and finally, if driven lo tbat necessiiy, a
common destiny of the South, 'for weal or

blinded with lauaticism and drunk with tbe

"Whither thou goest I will go, and where

be my popb, and thy God my God.
Tbe Lord do so to me and more also, if

II there cannot be an honorable union of all

from our equality, I shall yet seek for fit

But, my countrymen, it is plain and de
monstrable to my understandings that we
cannot do oursthet justice, if we are not
agreed as to tbf fact of our laboring under
wrongs; or if admitting our wnng-, we are
still fatally bent upon undertaking tbe re
dress of these wrongs, only a whigs, or as
d- mocrats, or in any other partizan capa
city. Tbe first great question now presenting it
self to tbe South, rn people fur solution, and
which must be solved before we can accom
plish or ought to attempt anything else, is
simply whether we, as a people, have the vir
tue to forget tbe party hatred to which par
ty training bas so long inured us, and re
gard each other as brother Southerners, re
cipient f common wrongs,' aud linked to a
If the virtue and self-denying spirit of the
Southern people aie not tqual to this task
(and I grieve to admit tbe task is not a light
one ) then the next wisest course for us to
kdopt, is to remain, if. possible, inactive; for
in tbat event our party organizations will be
kept up, our p.trty passions and prejudices
will be constantly on' th-t alert,; and what
ever is proposed on one side willbeadva
cat' d with iud. soi imiiia iug zeal by the nd

Tbe prevention of these evils can only be
accomplished, so far as I am able to see, by
our ceasing to be either Bell. Breckinridge

I have faith in my fellow-citizens of th

We rpeak thus explicitly, because, next to I ?
tbe danger, that the Soutit will presume on
the readiness of the North to concede much
rather than allow tjie Union to be dissolved,
we deprtcatt the irjilatioa- which, threats .or
apprehensions of force are certain to produce.

How; this urust oierie.in I iCreizJoa where
itojhs atcoouted a, cpwariis. to.be universal-
lv despisetl and spit upon,-we need not ay.
We propose to wrest this potetft'enjrinefrom
the disuotonists by saytogJTrankty ,tothe-
Iwv&.St a tes: ' -If ' y 6u i choose" to leave tbe
."JJiijpn, leave it; but let us "baveVno quarrel
about it . If you .think -it a corse -tq yon
and an unfair advantage to us, repudiate it,
?4and see if you are not mistaken". " 1 yoa'are

"for our pari we have done, very well with
'you, and are ..quite' willing to,, keep along",
"witu you; but it' the a-sociation isiiksome
"to you. we have too much stll-reepect to in
"'sist on its continuance... We bave lived by
"our industry thus far, and hope to do bo
"still, even though you leave us."
. Tbey who think to salve over the wideuing
chasm between the Free and th Coitou
Siatt-s are utterly unaware of the 6ertoii-'
ness of , the. matter in issue.' We are confi
dent that the Fire-eaters, instead ot being in
any degree placated by a promt-e of the
.North to evince greater z -al aod diligence in
catching runaway slaves, would rather fe 1
insulted by it. Lincoln's election, we must
repeat, was not tbe cause of the secession
movement, but only seized as affording a fa
vorable opportunity for bringing it to is-u .
Tbt South especially South Carolina is
poor, deeply iu . debt, aud with faint- pros
pects of improvement. No- people who de
vote th' ir euergies to the growing of one or
two bulky staples buying almost everything
they eat, drink and wear, ever failed to ruu
deeper aud deeper into debt until utter bank
ruptcy supervened; aud a slavhulding com
ffiunify is least lik-'ly to prosper under this
rdinons system. Tbe South owes this day
every pound of Cotton, Tobacco, Rice and
Sugar she bas mad" or will "make from the
cr-p ol 1860; yet her buildings are generally
shabhy, her furniture poor, and scanty, her
homes destitute of comforts, and her soil
wa-ling away. Her poorer white people are
indoleot, improvident, and ill at ease. Cut
off from the North, -many of her states
men fancy ' she wonld fabricate for her
self, and soon be a perfect hive of mechan
ics and manufacturers. To this end, they
now think of providingby law that slaves
shall be employ. d only in Agriculture and..
Household service, opening all the. arts to
white en-rgy and ambition. This would pro
bably', work tbe overthrow of Slavery , in a
generation or twoj but that is not our affair.
We repeat that only tbe sheen of Northern
bayonets can blind the South wholly to the
evils of .-secession; but that may do it. Let
ns be paiii-ut, neither speaking daggers uor
using them, standing to our principles, but
not to bur arms, and all will yet be well.
