We IT before tbe readers of the Patriot,
. this morning, a brief account of the meeting
it Philadelphia last week. The resolutions
indicate a desire on the part of the people of
-that city to do justice- to the Sooth, and we
' hope their Influence will prevail throughout
the State. Worthy of note, in this connec
tion, U the - statement in our telegraph
column, that the entire delegation from the
old Keystone State are disposed to act as be-
nmM them in this important crisis. Tbe
South asks no concessions; she demands only
. ber .constitutional rights, and these must be
warded her. Pennsylvania has it in her
power to do much towards securing ber in
them. It is with ber to say whether she will
exert her influence to that end or not.
Got. Jobnton't Proposed. Amend'
ments to tbe Federal Constitution.
The resolutions submitted by ex-Gov. Ax
, ; drew Johxsos, in the U. S. Senate on the
13th insL, proposing amendments to the Con
stitution, provide:
" 1. That in the election of President and
Vice President, each State shall be iaid off
into a number of districts equal to the whole
number of Senators and Representatives
such State may have in Congress. The peo-
l- pie of each district shall vote directly for
resident and Vice President, aftd whoever
. obtains a majority in the district shall be
" deemed to have received one vote, which
" shall be certified by the Governor of the
State! iThe election shall take place the Erst
. . Thursday in August, and Congress shall
' be in session and receive and count the rote
on the first Monday in October. If no one
receive a majority of all the votes for Presi
dent, then the election shall be referred back
to tbe people, who shall on the first Thurs
day of December following, choose between
the two persons receiving the highest num
ber of votes for President.
The same is the case with the Vice Presi
dent unless there shall be a choice for Presi
dent and not of the Vice President at the
first election, in which case the Senate shall
. choose the Vice President from the two high
est candidates. The President in 1561 shall
be chosen from one of the slaveholding
States, and the Vice President from one of
the non-elaveholding States and in 186S;
the President shall be chosen from the non
slaveholding. and the Vice President from
the Elaveholding States, and so alternating
every four years daring the continuance o
the Government.
2 That the Senators in Congress shall be
. - elected directly by the people.
3. That the Federal Judges hold their oQ
ces for the term of twelve years, instead of
daring good behavior, und to be classified eo
as to have tbe term of one third of them to
eipire every four years; also that racinci
occurring in the Supreme Court shall be filled
by persons one half of whom shall be cboeen
from the slaveholding and the other half
from the non-slaveholding State?, so that the
Court shall be equally divided in that re
spect. Gov. Johnson al-io submitted, at the fame
time, another resolution, as follows
"Resolved- That the select committee r.f
thirteen be instructed to inquire into the ex
pediency of establishing, by contitut.occl
provision: 1. A line running through the
territory of the United States, not included
- within the States, maikng an fiitable and
jast division of said territory, south of which
line slavery shall be recognizfd and protect
ed as property, by ample and full constitu
tional guarantees, and north of which line it
shall be prohibited. 2- The repeal of all
acts of Congress in regard to the restoration
of fugitives from labor, and an explicit dec
laration in the Constitution, that it is tbe du
ty of each State for itself to return fugitive
slaves when demanded by the proper autho
rity, or pay double their ca?h vaiue out of
tbe treasury ot the State. 3. An amendment
of the Constitution, declaring that slavery
shall exist in navy-yards, arsenals. &c or
not, as it may be admitted or prohibited by
the States in which such navy-yards, arsenals,
JLc., may be situated. 4. Congress shall nev
er interfere with slavery in the District cf Co
lumbia, so long as it Ehall exist in the State
of Maryland, nor even then, without the con
sent of the inhabitants and compensation to
- the owners. 5. Congress shall not touch the
representation of three-firths of the slaves,
nor the inter-State trade, coastwise or in
land. 6. These provi&ions to be unamenda
ble, like that which relates to the equality of
the States in the Senate.''
Recent elections in a number of the lead
ing cities and towns of Massachusetts for
Mayor and Aldermen, show a decided change
- in public sentiment against the republicans.
In all of them the conservatives made heavy
gains, and most of them show a complete
revolution. This reaction, we hope, will con
tinue until the Bay State la redeemed. It
has already had effect at Washington; a friend
there, from the South, writes us that the re
publican leaders admit that their power is
broken. The South will yet secure her rights
in the Union if she but act firmly and dis
creetly. - - - -
We learn from the Memphis Appeal,
that the Douglas Democratic Siaie Conven
tion, which -was called to meet in this city,
on the 8th of January next, has been post
poned to a time not yet designated. The
came assi'med for the postponement is the
unsettled condition of the political affairs of
the country.

The Philadelphia. Meeting.
. On Thursday last a public meeting was
held in Philadelphia, called by a proclama
tion of the Mayor'of tbe city.. The Well
ington telegraphic correspondent of the Cin
cinnati republican preeses, bent on mischief,
have characterized it as a humiliation meet
ing, and a failure. It may have been a hu
miliating and contemptible spectacle in the
eyes of .fanatics, who are doing all they can
to coerce the Southern people into revolu
tion; but to all patriots it was a sublime
spectacle, giving them hope and encourage
ment in their efforts to save the ship of State,
and to start her once more upon a smooth
sea, and under fair skies, on her glorious
voyage. -ct!plfA
American (republi
can) publishes the proceedings of the meet
ing in exlenso. They fill seven of its ample
columns. It says the two ''hours devoted to
the meeting witnessed a general suspension
of business. Market and Third street, Front
and Water streets were as deserted as on
Sunday; the Courts adjourned at 12 o'clock;
the doors of the public offices were sealed,
and from all directions, at tbe hour named,
people were wending their way toward the
site upon which was first pronounced the
declaration of American freedom, tt sanc
tion by their presence a demonstration for
the perpetuity of the Federal compact.
At half past eleven o'clock the officers of
the meeting the Presidents and Vice Presi
dents assembled in the chamber of Select
Council. Thry were joined by the Judges of
the Courts, the presidents and members of
Council in general, and by a large number
of influential citizens. There were also pre
sent numerous clergymeu, and many of our
prominent merchants and manufacturers.
The staging erected in Independence square
was very spacious, and was entirely occu
pied by the officers of the meeting. In front
of it, far beyond earshot of the loudest voice,
stretched, to use the trite phrase, a sea of
beads. No meeting fo large has ever been
held in this city during the memory of the
present generation. When we say that
twelve thousand upturned faces surrounded
the stand of the speakers, we make a small
estimate of the numbers in the throug. '
To this scene, the procession of orators
and officers moved at the appointed hour.
First came the Major, arm in arm with Bish
op Potter; next, the Presidents of City Coun
cils, then the Judges of the Courts, while the
officers of the meeting completed the line.
The reserve corps enfiladed in double rank
through the Slate House hall, and between
them passed the line to the stage erected di
rectly in tbe rear of the building. The spec
tacle that met the eye was impressive, sol
emn and unique. We have seen dense
throngs of people during the excitement of
political campaigns, we have seen large mul
titudes assembled for various purposes, but
in the history of the country the meeting of
yesterday, alike in itsol jocta and its numeri
cal strength, stand alone. The proceedings
of the meeting were conducted amid a si
lence mat, in view ot tbe multitude assem
bled, was a sufficient commentary upon the
importance of the occasion, and upon the
earnestness with which any approximation
toward disunion is deprecated by the people
of Philadelphia
After prayer by Bishop Pottek, Majr
HtNKT was called to the chair.
There were together several hundred Vice
Presidents and Sretaries, represeaUDg the
leading parties. Their names having been
read, Mr. J. B. Mters offered tbe following
resolutions :
The people cf the city r.f Philadelphia
having assemoled in cheerful obedience to the
proclamation of the Mayor, i?ued by request
of their Councils, for the purpose of testify
ing tht-ir love fr the Union and their devo
tion to it perpetuation, ana to the strength
ening of those bonds which hold ns together,
whe'.ner of the north or the south, the east
or tbe west, as on? great and united people,
do resolve
First. With one voice and united hearts,
we proclaim our attachment to and reverence
for the Constitution or the United State?, and
our earnest and enduring love for that great
Union which it creates and protects a love
which is not sectional but national, and that
greets our brother from whatever State he
comes, as a partaker with us in that noblest
of all inheritances, the title of a citizen of
the United Slates.
Resolved, 2, That the usefuln-M and tLe en
durance of the Union both depend upon a
faithful observance, by the people of all tie
States, of all the requirements of that Facred
instrument whieh the wisdom and tbe patriot
ism of our fathers framed, and under whose
provisions we have become a great and happy
people, prosperous and renowned among tLe
nations of the earth.
ResUved, 3, That we do, therefore, most
deeply deplore the fact that some of the
States of this Union have placed upon their
statute books enactments which evade or de
feat provisions which the framcra of the Con
stitution wisely inserted for the protection of
valuable rights of citizens of other States;
and that we pronounce all such acts to be
violations of the solemn compact by which
we are made one people, and that we earnest
ly appeal to our brethren of those States in
stantly to repeal all such enactments.
Resolved, 4, That the people of Philadelphia
hereby pledge themselves to their brethren of
the other States, that tbe statute books of
Pennsylvania shall be carefully searched by
their representatives at tbe approaching ses
sion of tbe Legislature, and that every stat
ute, if any such there be, which in tbe least
degree invades the constitutional rights of a
t-ister State, will be at once repealed, and
that Pennsylvania, ever loyal to the Union
and liberal in construing her obligations to
it, will be faithful always in her obedience to '
its requirements.
Resolved. 5. That we recognize tbe obliga
tions of the Act of Congress of 150, com
monly known as tne fugitive blave lw, and
submit cheerfully to its taitb'ul enforcement;
aud that we point with pride and - satisfac
tion to ihe recent conviction and ' punish
ment, in tbe City of Philadelphia, of those
who had broken its provisions, by aiding ia
the attempted rescue of a slave, as proof that
Philadelphia is faithful in her obedience to
the law; and furthermore, that we recom
mend to the Legislature of our own State,
the passage of a law which shall give com
pensation in case of tbe rescue of a slave by
the county in which such rescue occurs, pre
cisely as is now done by existing laws in case
of destruction of property by the violence of
mobs. . , :
Resolved, 6. That as to tbe question of the
recognition of slaves as property, and as to
tb question of the rights of tlavowai:ra in
tbe territories of the United States,, tbe peo
ple of Philadelphia submit themselves obe
diently and cheerfully to the decisions of the
Supreme Court of the United States, wheth
er now made or hereafter to be made, and
they pledge themselves faithfully to observe
tbe Constitution in these respects, as tbe
same has been or may be expounded by that
august tnbunaL And iurtner; tcey recom
mend that whatever points of doubt exist
touching these subjects, be in some amicable
aud lawlul way forthwith submitted to the
consideration of said Court, and' that its
opinion be acceptedjas tbe finaikuid authoi ita
tive solution of all doubts as to the meaning
of the Constitution in controverted points. .
Lttolctd, 7. That all denunciations of cile
ry, as existing in the United States, and of
our fellow citizens who maintain that institu
tion and who hold slaves under it, are incon
sistent with that spirit of brotherhood : and
kiadnes which ought to animate all who
live under and profess to support tbe Consti
tution of tbe American Union.
Jiaoited, 8. That we cordially apt rove the
suggestion that a Convention, or Congress of
Delegates from toe Mates contemplating se
cession be held for tbe purpose of consulta
tion upon tbe causes that Induce them to med
itate such a step, and of suggesting such
remedies as they would propose: aud that it
is tbe firm conviction of the citirensof Phil-J
adelphia that tbe propositions made by such
convention would be received by the people
of the other States in a fraternal and concil
iatory spirit, and with an earnest desire to
remove all grounds of just complaint.
Raoleed. nnauu, nat we appeal to our
brethren of South Carolina, ot Georgia, of
Alabama, of Mississippi,- of Florida, and of
such other States as are considering tbe
question of seceding from -the Uoion, with
all the affectionate earnestness we can ex.
nmi. to forbear. That we remind them of
tbe Innumerable ties which, bind us together 1
as one people, ana wmv" seem - w us bo
strong that no-power short of that which
par)yzes all memory, and effaces all history,
can eeparate ;us, that the ashes of those
brave men who fought with us and for ns ret
f beneath our soil, aud that thev have in their
keeping the bones of our soldiers who per
ished in their defence; that our glorious in
stitutions, under whose guidance and protec
tion we have attained so great prosperity and
renown, and which have made this Union of
States tho joy and hope of -oppressed mil
lions throughout the world, weie framed by
the wisdom, built by the toil, and defended
by the blood of a common ancestry, and can
not perish without an eternal reproach to
us, their children, if we destroy so great and
so fair an inheritance.
- At the end of the reading," the Mayor put
the question to the multitude: "Shall these
resolutions of union and harmony in this re
public bo adopted?" when tbe united voices
of the vast assemblage went up in one tre
mendous ate! followed by nine cheers for
the Union. ;
Speeches were made by Hon. Joseph E
Esq.! the President of the Select Council,
Mr. Cutler, and Hon. Isaac Hazlehcrst
Of the meetin?. the resolutions, the
North American Eays ,' -
And a great meeting it unquestionably
was great in the impulses which led to it
crreat in the numbers, and great in the char
acter and FDirit of the vast majority of those
who participated in it. The people of Phil-
adelnhia desired to make It an occasion lor
marking their devotion to the Constitution
under which they have so long lived and
flourished, and of their determination to
abide bv the Union which have been their
pride and glory. To this end they came to
gether, ready to make any sacrifices of mere
opinions; to agree to any propositions, which,
involving no surrender of principles might
open the way to a peaceful settlement of tbe
troubles which now distract tbe nation.
With the resolutions, abating some ex
travagances of phraseology, and aside from
the glosses of some of the speakers, the body
of those present no doubt cordially con
curred. - ' " . , j
Mr. I intoin and lit Cablut. . -
The Springfield (111.) correspondent of the.
Cincinnati Commercial eays supporters of Mr,
Lincoln, formerly whigs, have, since the
election, urged him to select as members of
bis cabinet, such men as Bell of Tennessee,
Guthrie, of Kentucky, Gilmer, of N. C
and Etheridce, of Tennessee. Mr. Lincoln,
he says, appreciated tLe spirit in which the
recommendations were made, but was un
able to perceive their reasonableness. Hence,
he desired an opportunity to convey the
views be entertained on ' the subject, in a
semi-official manner, to the interested parties,
The publication of Mr. Bell's letter to Mr.
Bckwell afforded that opportunity, aud be
caused the following queries, heretofore re
published by us, to be made in tbe Spring
field Journal:
' "We see such frequent allusions to a sup
posed purpose on the part of Mr. Lincoln to
call into his Cabinet two or three Southern
gentlemen from the parties politically op
posed to him, that we are prompted to ask
few questions.
"1st. Is it known that any such gentlemen
of character -.roold accept a seat in the Cabi
net? . ' .
"2d. If yea-ou what terms? Does he sur
render to Mr Lincoln, or Mr. Lincoln to him,
on the political differences between them? or,
do thfv enter upon the administration in
cpen opposition to each other'
The CommrciaTs correspondent adds that
the tenor of Mr. Bell's letter "demonstrates
differences of opinion between its author and
tbe President elect of so radical a character,
as to preclude the possibility of an eventual
understanding, without a flagrant and d:
crcQita'ol-j abandonment ot settled convic
tions on one of the two sides.'
' He also says
I understand, that to-morrow morning s
Journal will contain a leader on Mr. Bell's
letter, inspired from quarter?, and I bez to
direct your attention in advance, to it.
We Lad hup-.-d that the views of Mr. Bell
touching the question of slavery, and the
issues growing out cf it, connected with bis
views in regard to the- sectionalism of the
republican party as expressed in the Senate
ia ISoS, were sufficient to satisfy all parties
that be could , not, even if bis Southern
friends desired him, accept a place in a re
publican Cabinet. The fact that he has been
recommended, as stated by the correspondent
above, by supporters of the President elect,
Is bat another evidence of the failure of ev
en moderate republicans to realize the im
minence of tbe dangers which overhang the
Union, and He seriousness of the revolu
tionary movements in the South. If they
realized these things, in their true and terri
ble significance, they would feel assured
that no public man in the South, opposed to
republicanism, and . entertaining Mr.
Bell's views, who has any character to lose.
could be induced to accept a seat in Mr. Lin
coln's Cabinet, and that it is folly even to
think of such a thing. Let Mr. Lincoln"
look amongst republicans for bis Cabinet;
and, having selected them, let ' him, if he de
sires to preserve the Union, strike the ban
ner of sectionalism, and aid in securing for
the South guaranties of her coutsitutional
For the Daily Patriot.
The 'Tcrsonal Liberty" Act.
Editors of the Patriot: I beg to put
the public upon their guard against the ar
ticle you "yesterday copid from the Kational
Intelligencer, professing to give "an authentic
analysis of ail the statutes passed by the
Northern States, and represented to be more
or less in conflict with so mucb of the Con
stitution and laws of the land as relates to
the recovery and rendition of fugitive slaves."'
The oversights andomiseions are important.
I have not time to revise the article as to all
the S.tatcs. JJat I .will illustrate by disclos
ing the errors as to a single. State Massa
chusetts.. The Massachusetts Act not only
gives to .the slave the right of the writ of
habeas corpus and trial by jury, refuse th use
of the jails, and prohibits State officers from
acting under the act of Congress, &o, as ad
mitted by the lnttlligtacer, but it resists the
Coostitctionand law3 In the following im
portant particulars, suppressed or overlooked
by the LiUUigencer: ' . . , .-
1. It toi-s, not Itw than J 1000 'and im
prisons not less than one year, all persons
other than the claimant of the slave, .who aid
ia removing a fugitive from the State under
the laws of Congress. This applies to all
Marshals, ' Deputy Marshals, any posse they
may summon, or any bther 'persons giving
the master aid. See tec. CO. ch. HI, Revised
Statutes."- l ' ' ''- 5
2. It gives to the fugitive the right to sue
all sdeb" persons for damages. lb.' ' 15 -
3. It provides that no ex parte deposition or
affidavit "shall be ; ma da evidence for' the
claimant. - Permit -me to explain this :If
your slave, escapes from you at Nashville,
and goes to Massachusetts, the act of Con
gress provides that you may appear before
the Circuit Court of "Davidson county, and
make satisfactory proof of such escape, and
that such slave is jour prcperty. " ."Whereup
on the Court is required to cause a record to
be made of 6uch proof, .' with a description of
the fugitive-slave. And upon your present
ing a transcript of Ibis record authenticated
by the'attestalioa of the Clerk and the seal
of the Court, to a' United States "Judge or
Commissioner la Massachusetts, with addi
tional evidence,'!!1 necessaiy, of the identity
of the fugitive? the law reqa ires that he shall
be delivered up to you. But . the Massachu
setts act regards this evidence before "the
Tennessee Cdurtas'ex parti!, and provides that
ft shall not be evidence la your fa Yor.-Se

no presumption shall arise In the master's 1
favor 'from' proof t iat the fugitive' or-anyof
his ancesters had been actually hehin a slave,
without proof that such holding was legdL
lb. The people of Massachusetts hold that
slaves cannot be held legally otherwise than
under. .some .."local law." .Whatever proof
you might make therefore, that you had held
the" fugitive as a slave, you could not prove
that you held bim legally in Tennessee, be
cause in this Slate there happens to be no
local la-r establishing the institution of slav

5. The f Majssacliusi-tts. act requires the
claimant to "state in writing the facts" on
which he relies "with precision and certain
ty," to prove each essential fact by two wit
nesses, In" the presence of the fugitive,
among which are that he not only held bim
as a slave, but held bim legally and if he
fails in all this if the negro is not recover
ed, be is deemed an injured party, and may
sue his master for damages in snch proceed
ings. Sec 62. ..
So you will perceive that the Intelligencer's
"authentic analysis" is only calculated to
mislead. Tbe Intelligencer is altogether a dif
ferent paper from what it was when Mr.
Gales lived. I have seen it stated that it wonld
probably become Mr. Lincoln's organ.
For tbe Daily Patriot.
' IUr. ZVicUoIson's Letter.
Tte best thing we have ever seen from the
Honorable Senator. It is calm, just, sensible,
pacific. ' Such sentiments do him credit.
They assume only the suitable credit, rights
and dignity for the State of Tennessee
God grant that every man of influence, in
official or private station, may concur and
make known such views. Let them be in
culcated throughout these Central States, and
the imperishable honor and glory will, in all
probability, bi earned or accomplishing a
work in ' which our posterity and all lovers
of peace and free government "tbe world over
and to tbe world's end," may rejoice with
joy unspeakable and ever increasing.
'Blessed are the peace-makers," is a just
sentiment announced by highest authority,
and is so just that it may be regarded as an
ordinance of Heaven a law as truly appli
cable to States (an aggregate of persons) as
it is to an individual.
These Central States owe it to their posi
tion, to tbe character and rights they have
acquired, and t-o the certain, speedy and
profitable development of their natural re
sources, to assume and maintain a position
of independence, to be self-possessed, acting
as mediator between the North and the
South. Then, if they fail in preventing the
threatened disunion, and fail in efforts to re
construct a United States Government such
as our wise, good and great men transmitted
to ns, and under which we have prospered
as no other people have ever grown and
prospered: If they should fail in either of
these most laudable objects, then let them
stand aloof from all "entangling alliances,"
bold, upright and independent,
grace iu every step,
Ia every gesture, dignity and lore."7
With what ineffable scorn, contempt and
ridicule would the people of Kentucky and
Tennessee have been looked upon, had either
of them arrogated the right to break np this
government? If one State has the right to
secede, so has each other. But, however
many the causes of offence there might be to
the people of these Central States, if all the
other States surrounding them were harmoni
ous and strongly united, these Central States
could not secede. They on tbe outskirts, for
whose harbors, ports, navy and army we
have contributed our millions of dollars,
have no right to destroy the integrity of the
government break the cordon sanitairc. But
this is done. "ii day. South Carolina the
least democratic, the least republican, the
least free, and the least annoyed, but the
most aristocratic of all these States has
manifested utter contempt of the solemni
ties of the great covenant between the States;
Las treated her sister States with such in
dignity as precludes her from the sympathy
and commendation of all who are resolved to
maintain self-respect and entitle themselves
to tbe regard of an impartial and enlightened

this demented career, this sentence will be

But this can never be. However applica
ble such an epitaph may be tor any other
State, it shall never be said or engraven as a

THE Academy offers some peculiar advantages,
among which , we think are the following ;
1. A. tvell euclOMed Yard of aboutSaores,
within the incorporated limits ot Xashviiie, thus af.
fording Pnpiis unrestrained freedom in healthful re
creation, and still subjecting them to the restraints of
a refined and intelligent society.
- 2. UulldfngS) in extent and Buitablenen), for all
school purposes, unequalled in the United States by
any Female School ; aud these surrounded by pave
ments and corridors, offering constant inducements to
children, to breathe' the fresh air, without regard to
the weather.
3. Jeeurlty from Fire These buildings are
heated by steam and lighted by gas, and thus free the
parents of our pupils from at least one source of con
stant anxiety about their children.
Ileal (It unequalled in any Female Echo J, in
this or any other eouniry. Though one of the largest,
and a part of the time the largest, Boardiding School
in the United States, yet but three deaths have oc
curred among its pupils in nearly 45 years.
5. ' Kon-nrciatrlan. It is well known to all ac-i
qaainted with the Academy, that a Baptist, Episcopa
lian, Methodist or Presbyterian, sends bis D tughter
here, perfectly satisfied, that in no respect will offence
be given to his peculiar views, and yet equal
ly satisfied that the principles of our common religion
will be daily inculcated.
6. lHicrnalCare. Thisexnrepsloaexcites no
expectation which is not fully met in the Academv.
A suitable number of ladies, of piety and refinement,
dovote their entire time to the supervision of tho ex
penses, tbe morals, habits and health of the Boarding
Guardians and parents, who for any cause, mav be
