VVe have assumed that there has been au unauthorized assumption of power not delegated to the Federal Government ; but it is not every assumption that would justify, morally speaking, as extreme a measure as "secession;" for it is only when it becomes an evil too intolerable to be borne, that State sovereignty should in terpose her broad shield to protect the citizen. The right may exist, long before it should be exercised, for although our Government is strictly a Confedency proper, yet we at the same time hold there is amoral J?.

It should be resorted to, provided you have first exhausted all the honorable means at your disposal. Think ing that you have not, we should make one more and if that be disregarded last effort. It is true that you have again and again remonsiraieu against unconstitutional en- free soil spirit of Congress (whose encroach ments we have hitherto too long submitted to,) but we have likewise to make headway against public sentiment at the North, which seems do set at definancethe only part of the compromise that enured to the benefit of the South. Nay, worse than this, if possible; for we seriously fear that the very Government which is looked to for protection, with all its gigantic resour ces, is physically incapable of giving re lief, so long as the Northern sentiment shall remain so vitiated and corrupt. Now it is perfectly immaterial to you, where the wrong is, so that the wrong exists, and is of such a nature as seriously to affect your prosperity. If the legislation of Congress, as to the restoration of your slaves cannot be enforced at the North, for the reason, as has been alledged by her most prominent men ; that it was not in conformity to, and in coincidence with the known and established principles of their respective State Constitutions, guarantee ing the right of trial by jury, it is just as complete a nullification of the act, as would be a refusal of the Executive to enforce it. The only difference is that you should bear the former much longer than the lat ter, or than any farther aggressions by the general government. There is no way for you to reach this their recreancy to plighted faith, without embarrassing too much your own people. Make war upon them you cannot, for that is forbidden ; confiscate their property you will not, for that is beneath you, and should only be resorted to when every thing else has failed. Neither are we so perfectly certain that you have the con stitutional right to resort to the impost or ad valorem duty of which you speak, par ticularly in the shape which it is made to assume- If the impost or advaloremtax can be imposed at all (of which there can be no doubtj it is limited in its extent to the rate per cent, required to execute your inspection laws, which would not be one per cent.

Broadwell, bound from Philadelphia to Mobile, to take her station on Lake Pon chatrane, was lost on the night of the 50th ult., off Cape Hatteras Light bearing N. W., supposed about ten miles distant, in 7 fathoms water. Six of the crew were picked up at sea on the following morning, by the.Schr. Champion, Captain Bartlett, from Boston, and arrived heie last night, The remainder of the crew, 16 in num ber, have not been heard of. The following report of the loss of the steamer has been furnished us by Capt. Bartlett. The starboard after guard was started by heavy sea, which caused the boat to le'ak badly; at midnight broke the expansion pipe, which entirely disabled the engine; then kept the boat before the wind for 3 or 4 miles, and anchored in 7 fathoms water, with 5 feet water in the hold. The crew then picked their boats and the first boat with 6 of the crew on board, left the steamer about a quarter past two o'clock in the morning. The other two boats with the Captain and the balance of the crew had not yet left, but is supposed to have done so in a very short time afterwards. The following are the names of those that have arrived at this place: John S. Lodge, 2nd Eng.; Staten Morris, 2d Pi lot; Alfred Thomas, Watchman; Charles C. McDonald, and Jacob Harris, deck hands; and John Mailman, fireman. actments, and again and still again have iney oeen presseti upon you. ino longer ago than the last session of your Legisla ture did you most solemnly resolve tha the enactment of any law which shal abolish slaverv or the slave trade in the district of Columbia, or shall directly or indirectly deprive the citizens of the States of this right of emigrating with their slave property into any of the Territories of the United States, ami of exercising owner ship over the same, while in said territor ies, will be an act not only of gross injus tice and wrung, hut the exercise of power contrary to the true meaning and spirit of the constitution.'' These resolutions passed both houses by nearly a unanimous vote, ami were laid before the Congress of the United States. Were they heeded ? No, entirely disre garded. And why ? For the simple rea son that the South has been so sensitive, so ultra and jealous, and withal scolded so much, that the Yankees began to think that like a barking dog you would not bite; and so it was. And it may be said, and we seriously fear will be, that even though you should now take the still higher ground, that you would withdraw from the Uniou, that it would be productive of no other effect (unless it should be the unanimous senti ment of the whole State,) than to make them still ;laugh atyourcalmity, and mock :when your fear cometh." Nevertheless, it is a duty which you owe to every thing sacred to yourselves, to the State, and to the South to the peace and the security of the domestic hearth, to a common aucestry, and to kindred blood, that you speak out. Yes, you own it to the very American name which awakens so many pleasing reminiscences, and comes down hallowed by so many kindred associations. But much will depend upon the manner in which you do speak. Recollect that the k difficulties which now surround us are more alarming than at any previous time ; for we have not only to contend with the COLONIZATION SOCIETY. Mr McLain, the Secretary of the society, read the following abstract of the proceed ings of the past year: Since the last annual meeting, four of the Vice Presidents have died, viz: John Kerr, M. 1)., of Natchez, Miss.; Hon. Jonathan Hyde, of Bath, Maine; Rev. C. C. Cuyler, D. D., of Philadelphia, Pa.; and John McDonough, of New Orleans. Six expeditions, with 507 emigrants, have been sent to Liberia. This is a larger number of emigrants than have been sent in any one preceding vear, except 1832. The receipts of the Society have been 864,973 91 which is considerably above any former vear. The legislature of Virginia have appro priated thirty thousand dollars a year, for five years, to aid in colonizing the tree colored people of their own State, lhe law limits the amount appropriated to each one to twenty-five dollars for an adult, and fifteen dollars for a child. This will not cover half the expense of their trans portation and their support for six months in Liberia. The legislature of Ohio have passed reso lutions urging the recognition of the inde pendence of Liberia by the United States government. It is thought they will make an appropriation to aid the Colonization Society. The money speat by Ohio in legislating for and taking care of her free people would more than send them all to Liberia. Many of the very best colored people in the State are preparing to go to Liberia. Memorials from all parts of the State have been sent, praying the adoption by the general government of some efficient plan tor carrying on colonization. j The legislature of Indiana have taken strong ground in favor of national action to advance colonization and the suppres sion of the slave trade, and the recogni tion of the independence of Liberia bv the United States government- An appeal, signed very numerously by citizens in Kentucky, has been presented to the legislature of that State for an ap propiiation, which it is thought will be made. The subject has also been discussed in Tennessee, and will come before the legislature at the next meeting. The New Jersey Colonization Society has petitioned the legislature of that State for an appropriation. The Missouri Col onization Society has petitioned the legis lature of that State; ami the New York Society are about to do the same thing. The sentiment is becoming general that the several States must make appropria tions for colonizing their own free colored people. The State of Maryland in 1832 appro priated 200,000, and has planted a colo ny at Cape Pal mas, which is in a prospe rous condition. The steamship project, now before Congress, is one of the most popular measures in all parts of the country which has ever been proposed. The report of the Rev. R. R. Gurley, ot his mission to Liberia, has been pub lished by the United states, and is replete wun important information. The Massachusetts legislature have char tered a board of trustees for establishing a college in Liberia, and the effort meets with much favor. The Alexandria high school, at Mon rovia, has gone into full operation, and in creased attention is paid to the subject of education in Liberia. Extensive purchases of territory have been made adjacent to Liberia, the most important of which is the Gallinas, the noted slave factory. . ' , DREADFUL STEAMBOAT DISASTER! Over one hundred lives lost I Cincinnati, Jan. SO. 1851. The steam boat John Adams, from New Orleans, bound for Cincinnati, while on her way up the river yesterday, struck a snag near Greenville, and in less than five minutes thereafter, she parted and sunk. Over one hundred lives were lost by the disas ter, including all the deck h r.uls and fire men except two. It seems that the cabin parted from the hull and floated, by which means the cabin passengers were all saved. Most of those lost were foreign emigrants, who had gone as deck passengers. Their names are not known. HORRIBLE AFFRAY, ALL FROM A KISS. Capt. J. M. Martin has given us some particulars of an affray which occurred at Shirt tail Bend. Miss. E. P. Johnson, a planter, gave a party, at which Seth Cox and lady, I)r Gilbert, and many others, were present. During the evening a son of Mr J., who had but lately returned from school, avowed his intention to kiss every lady present. Accordingly he commenced by kissing Mrs Cox, Mr C. became angry at this, used harsh language toward the young man, and slapped his face. This led to a general fight. Bowie knives were drawn, and in the affair Mr Cox, Dr Gil bert, and young Johnson were dangerous ly wounded, and three or four others severely. Dr Gilbert was cut in the head, and the blood gushed from the wound to the ceiling. Mr Cox's brother had inti mated that if his brother recovered he would settle the difficulty. We believe Seth Cox and lady are both from this part of the countrv, and vJ. known here. Louisville Ky.) Journal 20lh. SUICIDE. Mr Henry Picard, keeper of a grocery store at Elizabeth City, N. C, committed suicide on the 28th ult. The Pioneer says : It seems that in his desperate r esolu tion to destroy his life, Mr P. first attempt ed to cut his throat, and inflicted upon himself a frightful wound ; failing in this, he took down a gun, put the muzzle in his mouth, and attempted to blow out his brains but it would not so off. He finallv seized a canister of powder, to which he applied a torch, and a terrible explosion followed, tearing open the windows and shattering everything in its way. The unfortunate victim of Itis own rashness was found in a shockingly mutilated con- dition, Out not yet dead! He lingered until the next day, when he was released from his agonizing pains by death. In the upper story of the . house his children were asleep : and but for the explosion finding free vent through the lower win dows and doors, they must have shared a common fate. Intemperance, superinduced by domestic troubles, is assigned as the cause. CHURCH STATISTICS.

Wilmington and Manchester Rail Road. The regular annual meeting of the Stockholders of the Wilmington and Manchester Rail Road was held at Ma rion Court House, S. C, on Wednesday and Thursday last, the 29th and 30th of January. The President states in his report that one half of the line has been graded, and that the other half is under contract for grading. It was resolved that should the town of Wilmington, in its corporate capacity, subscribe one hundred thousand dollars, that sum shall be, when paid in, expended for Iron, to be laid down on the Eastern part of the Road, beginning at or near Wilmington. The meeting recommended the issuing bonds to the amount of 8600,000. This course was taken instead of authorizing the issue for the reason that two-thirds of the Stock was not represented that pro portion being requisite to sanction the measure. It is proposed to hold another meeting at Marion Court House on the 12th of March, for further action on the recommendation. General Harllee, was re-elected Presi dent of the Company, and his salary raised to 83,000. The Directors elected are as follows: N N Nixon, J A Taylor, Henry Nutt, T D Walker, Wilmington; Alfred Smith, Columbus county, N C; J E Gregg, Marion District, S C; E W Char es, G J McCail, Darlington District, S C ; J J Moore, W A Muldrow, Sumter Dis trict, S. C. Chronicle. Liquid Leather. Dr. Beruland, of Larria, in Germany, is said to have dis covered a method of making leather out of certain refuse and waste animal substan ces. He has established a manufactory near Vienna; no part of the process is ex plained; but it is stated that the substance is at one stage in a state of fluidity, and may then be cast into boots, shoes, &c. Such a discovery is not improbable. Papal Bulls. A Pontificial ordinance is called a bull, from the Latin word bulla, which means a seal. v. The name of the seal passing in time to the document, they were called bullae or bulls. . The French word bttUelin - is derived from the - same source. Standard. : , . s -t- , , ConN from Baltimore. The crops of grain were so short in this State last year that large quantities of Corn are imported into Fayetteville, Wilmington, Newbern, Beaufort, &c, from Baltimore. It is sold here at 80 cents per bushel, whilst corn from the neighborhood in wagons and carts readily brings 90 cents. Observer. Died. Rev. Walter Cotton, formerly Chaplain in Capt. Patridge's Military Academy in this place, and since a Chap lain in the U S. Navy, died in Philadel phia, Wednesday of last week. He was author of several works, which are popular with the reading public, and was for a time one of the principal editors of the Phila delphia North American. The steamship Great Britain, that was wrecked in Dundrum Bay, was sold for S90,000 about one seventh of its original cost. As it is an iron vessel, the bargain is a good one for the buyer. Richard K. Cralle, Esq. of Lynchburg, Virginia, the chief clerk of Mr Calhoun when he was Secretary of State, has ar rived at New York with the intention of superintending the publication of the work of Mr Calhoun on the Constitution of the United States. South Carolina has ap piopriated ten thousand dollars towards publishing the work, and, in conjunction with Mr Calhoun's familv has appointed Mr Cralle to carry out the intentions of the Legislature. Present to Damel Webster. The friends of Mr Webster in New York are about to present him with a marnificpnr carriage, which cost 81,400, and a pair of horses worth Kl.UUO. lhe carnal has just been finished. Baltimore Clipper.

This Is certainly something "new under the sun. " Tapping. After a consultation, several physicians decided that a dropsical patient should be lapped. Upon hearing of the decision ofv the doctors, a son of the sick man approached him and r exclaimed, .".Father! don't submit to the operation, for there never was any thing tapped in our bouse that lasted more than a week." v ' : FRANCE. ;t; ,v-',:i ' The last news from France induces the belief that a great crisis in French affairs has taken place. - The quarrel between Louis Napoleon and General Changarnier, the commander of the army of Pans,; had become a question of such grave political imnortance that another revolution, may spring from it, which will give a new. di- reciiou iu me ucsuum .-iauc - - years ago America was rejoicing over the revolution of 1848, and indulging in fond hopes at the birth of the French republic. But since then the feeling in America has undergone a change. The hopes which were enkindled by the overthrow of the Bourbon dynasty gradually faded away. Even the first efforts of the provisional gov ernment tendeu.to obliterate them, by ex hibiting the fact'that even the ablest men of France were not prepared for genuine republicanism that republicanism with them was a mere abstract idea, and not a practical force, which it must become, as part and parcel a constituent element of a people, before it can produce any practical good. Liberti! jEqualiti! Fraterniti! though shouted in wild chorus by all the mobs on earth, will never establish a republic. The men who utter those words must know their meaning, and see that their rulers know it; they must know their meaning, and understand the great truth that where there is no law there is no liberty and no equality. Republicanism is not licen tiousness. It is moral and law-abiding. The mere fact that the French people elected a Prince for President, for no oth er reason but because he was 'the nephew of his uncle," proved that although repub licanism had driven monarchy from the tongues of the French people, it had not become an element of French nature, working its salutary effects silently and surely in the French system. Dead. The Hon Horace Everett died at his residence in Windsor, Vermont, on the SOth ultimo, in the 72 year of his age. Mr Everett was at his death one of the oldest members of the Vermont Bar, and for fourteen consecutive years he represent ed his district in the Congress jof the Uni ted States. Robert Rantnul, dem. , has been elected Senator from Massachusetts, by the coali tion of the free soilers and democrats. The term is only till the 4th of March next, at which time the term of Mr Webster would have expired. The place had been filled by the Executive appointment of Mr Win-throp. LIFE. BY CHARLES MaCKAT, A traveler through a dusty road. Strewed acorns on the lea. And one took root and sprouted up, And grew into a tree. Love sought its shade at evening time, To breathe its early vows; The dormouse loved its danarling twigs. The birds sweet music bore, It stood a glory in its place, A blessing evermore ; A little spring haJ lost its way. Amid the grass and fern ; A passing stranger scooped a well Where weary men might turn ; He willed it in, and hung with care A ladle at the brink, He thought not of the deed he did. ' But judged that toil might drink. He passed again ; and lo ! the well, By summers never dried, H-s cooled ten thousand parched tongues, And saved a life beside ! A dreamer dropped a random thought, 'Twas old, and yet was new ; A simple fancy of the brain. But strong in being true; It shone upon a genial mind, And, lo ! its light became A lamp of life, a beacon ray, A monitory flame. The thought was small its issue great, A watch fire on the hill, It sheds its radiance far adown, And cheers the valley still ! A nameless man, amid a crowd That thronged the daily ma rt. Let fall a word of Hope and Love, Unstudied, from the heart ; A whisper on the tumult thrown A transitory breath It raised a brother from the dust, It saved a soul from death, O germ ! O font!

FOR THE REMOVAL & PERMANENT CUR!? OF ALL DISEASES ARISING FROM AN IMPURE STATE OF THE BLOOD OR HABIT OF THE SYSTEM. V Among the many-and important discoveries of una gcuciauuij. js uue wnose laine will be writ ten, as with a sunbeam, in the history of the past. SAND'S SARSAPARILLA stands forth alone, and by its own works proclaims its power that mute eloquence so irrisistibly affectine in the appeals of the suffering for relief have been answered. Thousands of cases of diseases have been cured by this invaluable Medicine, such as are not furnished in the records of time. These things are not done in secret places. They are brought before the world to substantiate, beyond doubt, the healthy virtues of this preparation arid the facts untold, although gigantic, are as plain as the light of day. The Sarsaparilla is combined with the most effectual aids, the most salutary productions, the most potent simples of the vegetable kingdom; and its unprecedented success in the restoration to health of those who had long pined under the most distressing chronic maladies, has given it an exalted character fur nishing as it does, evidence of its own intrinsic value, and recommending it to the afflicted in terms the afflicted only can know. ' It has long been a most important desideratum in the prac tice of medicine, to obtain a remedy similar to this one that would act on the Liver, Stomach, and Bowels with all the precision aDd potency of mineral preparations, yet without any of their deleterious effects upon the vital powers of the system. Although posessed of powerful healing properties, it is entirely harmless, and will not injure the most delicate constitution. When in perfect health, no effect is produced by its use, except an increase of appetite; but when disease is seated in the frame, and carrying fast its vie tim along the path of life, then its mysterious influence is felt and seen ; it enkindles new life and vigor, and brings health and strength to the su fieri ng and diseased. SCROFULOUS AFFECTION OFr THE EYES. Winchester, Ky., Oct, 18-10. A. B. &. D.

My limbs were covered with ulcerous sores, so that I could not wulk during the whole Spring and Summer. In this situation I commenced the use of your Sarsaparilla, and after taking two bottles was entirely cured. I must also tell you of another wonderful . cure. My brother wa afflicted with this scrofula in his head, so had, his physician told him the loss of his sight was inevitable, and permanent blindness seemed tn be his f ile.
