' MlLLEDGE VILLE, Ga., Aug. 30, 1851. tientlemen : I thank you for your kind and press ing invitation to u barbecue, to be given to Col. Rob't ilcMillen, the Southern Ilights"candidate for Congress in the Eighth District, on the first Tues day in September next. But official engagements forbid me the pleasure of its acceptance. Morgan court will be in session at that time. My personal acquaintance with Col. McMillen is limited, but I know him by repntation as a gentle man of high moral worth, brilliant talents, and sound republican principles. Such men I am pleas ed to honor, and sincerely trust the great cause whose banner he bears by the united voice of the Southern Rights party of hisdistrict, may be tri umphant. ; The contest in which the people of Georgia, in common with her sister slaveholdiug States, are en gaged, is one of vital importance. It involves the destiny of the South, and the federative character of our system of government. It is waged upon the light of a State peaceably to secede from the Union, The Gubnatorial candidate of the Southern Rights party maintains the affirmative, and the candidate of the submission party the negative of this great question. The one, that the right necessarily re sults from the reseved soveriguty of the States and the nature of the confederacy, and the other that it exists only as a right of revolution. The former insists that the general government has no right to coerce a seceding State ; and the latter that such seceding State must depend far the maintenance ot its position-'upon the stout hearts and strong arms of a free people." The one unhesitatingly and boldly avows that if a Southern Stale were to secede he would not obey a requisition by the federal gov ernment made upon him as the executive of Georgia, feiroops to fort e her back into the Union ; and the o'tltr declares-he "would convene the Legislature af the State, and recommend them to call a conven tion of the people" to instruct him in an emergency To. which the impulseslof the true Southern heart should be a sufficient guide. The great issue, thenf T repec, is the light, of a Slate to scede from the Ufcon and the correlativeiabsence of any right, on ayjovermncnt to force such a into file Union. It cannot be evaded bv TtM SENSELESS CLAMOR OF UNION! Till S GLORIOUS UNION ! The integrity of the Union is not assailed by the Southern Rights party iu Georgia. Its true friends are thas-e wlio insist upon maintaining the rights resulting from the sovereign- ty of the States. Its real enemies are those- who, from behind it; as a "masked battery," level their destructive artillery against its strongest outposts, by counseling submission to aggression, INJUSTICE and EOBRERY, because, i,ikk'a wolf in siikep's crs OTHixo," they cons tinder the", HYPOCRITICAL GARB OF COMPROMISE. Then let a vigilant people look well to th true and only issue involved in the pending campaign Ike righi of a Slatv pea ceably to secede from the Union, I would not, if time and space justified, enter into an argument in favor of the affirmative of this issue I believe it is understood by tho people. It has been a cardinal tenet of the Republican creed from 1798 down to the present day, maintained by Jeffer son and Madison and Macon, Lowndes and Troup, andjall the distinguished statesmen of that school, irho properly understood the theory of our Govern ment, and whose heart beat responsively to the great ; American sentiment which is at once the parent and the soul of Constitutional liberty. Argu ment is not needed to elucidate or enforce it. If i the people, shaking off the trammels of party and gpurnins the timiij counsels of TEMPORIZING ! SUBM1SSIONISTS AND SELFISH TRADESMEN in tiik wheat mart of POLITICAL BARTERING, will obey the hoxest impulses op TRUE SOUTH ERN SEN 1TMENT, they will- require -no argument to array them on the side oj truth, TnEta lIEAltlll CTOVl'X a vn THE CONSTITUTION. To detract from the importance of the issue in public estimation, it is insisted that it is mere abstraction that it will be time enough for Georgia to determine it, when she shall be culled upon to exercise the right of secession. This is but one of the hundred subterfuges of those who man the "masked battery ." The issue is vital. It has not been made by the State ofGeorgia, no bg the Sou thern States. It has been forced vpiorrvs by Federal aggression. It has been distinctly tendered by high authority, it was tendered by Henry Clay in his great speech upon "the compromise bills." lie said "if resistance is attempted by any State, or by the people of any State, he will lift his voice, his heart land his arm in the support of the common authority of this government." Threugh Mr. Web ster, the Secretary of State, it has been tendered by the KOTTEN DYNASTY OF THE FlLI.MORE A DM INSTIGA TION. For he has distinctly procla mea ine policy of the Cabinet to be coercion, if any State should at tempt secession. This issue, then, is upon us. Shall we not meet it? Shall tee inglorious shrink from its decision? It is true, that to past aggressions, Georgia has determined to offer no resistance. But the right to resist and to resist peaceably, without the terror of federal bayonets, she cannot yield; and now she is called upon to make the decision. Let her meet it with firmness and unanimity. Whoever observes the s' gns of the times cannot fail to see that the RIGHT OF SECESSION will probo blu at no distant day. ASSUME THE FROM AND MAGNITUDE OF PRACTICAL IMPORT- ANCE. The South is in a permanent minority in j our Federal Lesrislature. The tone of Nor: hern , fanaticism abates not in its frenzy and insolence. It presses 011 rapidly to tha consmnmatio i of its diabolical designs. And what check has the South upon its progress ? Have we any under the estab lished rules of parliamentary law ? Can we expect any justice at the hands of the present Free-Soil Executive and his Cabinet? Can we effect any thing by argument and appeals to the reason of our NORTHERN OPPRESSORS? CAN WE CB TAIN SHELTER UNDER THE BROAD SHEL TER OF THE CONSTITUTION ? NO ! All these are important as pack-thread to restrain an IRRE SPONSIBLE AND FANATICAL MAJORITY. What, then, are" we to do ? I say, let us bear to the last point of endurance, but let us never proclaim tJirough the ballot-box, that we have no right to secede, and that, if r? rfo aftHi ar-a in r prQnl. led as xnsur gents and revolution ista. It never, never . . v " o can be true, that our fre-fathers,j in the struggle 29, I860. of , 6 fought only to achieve that which is the right of serfs 113 right of reeolutivi. They hal that under the British crown. But thev struggled for mo,l:?7KIolonial sovereignty and thev won it. - V, "V5 t"1"" round im mediately and surrender all they had battled for into the power of an elective consolidation? Never, nver. Those who main tain such a position, falsify ai, tho ,listry 0f our revolution, mid bring dishonor upon the master spirits of it.sthnlhng and eve.itiful s-.-encs. The rtg.it of season must be mzinUiucl. It is that last, the only hope of the S'nith. Let us maintain it with unanimity, and w can ho.d in check the spirit of abolition and consolidation. But if we yield it, the whole theory ol our federative system is changed and we are in the power of those whose mercy is hke that of the wolf to the lamb, it we vield it. we not only proclaim in ndvance'Jthat we will sub mit to usurpation and aggression, but we do worse, -we admit that we have no right to resist, and that is political vassalagk. .

Night on the Father of Waters ! Night, with her sable veil lowering over the mournin ' citv of -New Orieans, The shrill roar of the escaping steam told all who heard it that tho steamer t-stern Relle bad cast olf her shore lines, and was now, like an tm ady caged wild bird poising herself on the wind, r to start her ht 11,1 the Mississippi. I was not a mo ne too soon, for ere I had reach ed the priui3uade dock, tho gang-p'ank was drawn in. "Good-Lye'' was sni I to those gathered on the .wharf ban lk .n-chu f fluttered in the brcez.', waiv ing an adieu, and we wcrj oil. It was when the cholera was raging so fearfully at the southwest, almost depopulating whole cities in a single day, and carrying death and desolation iu nearly every family. The panic was at its height i:i New Orleans. Bus iness of all kinds appeared to be utterly prostr.;t.-d before the resistless march of the dread destroyer. All, or nearly all, who ha 1 friends or pi-etmi.i; -,-ability, were intent only on placing themselves or families at a safe- distance from the deadly visitant. As a natural consequence, every boat or other conveyance, which had not ceased running, was crowded with the Hying and fear-stickea t ili zen. The Western Belle formed no exception to the general rule, and on this occasion, as she swung oh" into the stream, ;m observer could re idily have seen that she was crowded to her utmost capa-ilv. Ere we had rcache I the channel, 1 observe 1 the c tptain hurry p.ist me, muttering to himself, appar ently in great agitition : "Had I only known before we cast off yet some thing must be done, that is evident but what "r" "Give me the charge !" Cajd. ' Uoynods r dsed his C3-CS at the sound of the clear vnd sonorous but somewhat imperative voice that uttered the words, and beheld a tall, dark-featured and strikingly handsome man, who had hasti ly approached from the opposite direction, and who, instantly seizing his hand, said : "Captain, the engineer has left his post gone upward dead the cholera 1" and his gestures were significant as he spoke. "I am already aware of the fact !' said the capi tain, with anxiety in his tones, "but why do you evince such an interest iimthe matter ?" "whilo'his momentarily stern gaze rested upon the counte nance of the stranger, whose face was partly con cealed hy a heavy beard and moustache of glossy blackness. ''I am Lieutenant George Hilton, of tho United States A 1-1113, tut formerly chief engineer of the Prairie Bird, at jour service," sai l the stranger, in a hurried manner, mentioning a well-known boat, noted in years gone by for horspjed and superior accommodations. "And 3et 3-our object is to offer our services to me as engineer for the up trip ?" said Captain Re3'- nolds, inquiringly 'As you have intuitively perceived, it sani the stran'zer. . "Sir Lieutenant I thank 3ou, doubly thank you, and will avail miself of 3'our kind olfLr ; ac cepting in the same generous spirit with which it is made, and without further ceremony !" said the captain, as be warmly pressed the hand of the other.

"in the wildness of disheveled chtrins" was a beau tiful maiden of seemingly not over seventeen ;um mers, and eyes as bright as the jew.ls of a legal diadem.

To dash open the window, ana to bathe her feverish brow with water was the work of a mo ment. She soon revived, and to my eoger questioning as to the cause of her painful situation, replied, thai all her family had fallen victims to the cholera, with the exception of her eldest brother, who had recov ered from the disease only to exhibit sy Biru ' that dark anomaly ofthe human mind iusunity.

Walker himself is dead, and Douglas did not get the nomination at Charles ton, only and endorsement of part of a Convention at Baltimore, and has no more likelihood of being next President of the United States than Walker with the bullet holes of the Hondurans through him has of being President of Nicaragua.
