Tbra mm nothing about him that auggeated the prettig of noble birth, and hia niece never dreamed that the blood of an hundred Earls flowed in his veins and her own. It wa. left for the romantic Miss Agnace. to enlighten Mtdtlein's ignorance on this poipt, which she did in a long epic, narrating bot Iiis Grey "waa the grand daughter of an English Lord, and was to go to England, and dwell in a castle, with a draw bridge, a port cullis, a moat, and turrets, and bat tlements with rooks flying about, all overgrown with ivy, (the latter em belliahment not being, it is presumed, appropriated by the rook,) and that now she was lady something, instead of only Miss Grey 1" Madalein was quite bewildered by this rumor f her brilliant destiny, but in a private! in terview with her uncle, she learned thai it waa substantially true. Her uncle, Sir George Htstings, was the younger brother of Mtdtlein's giand father by her mother's side. Her moiher, she was informed, "having disgraced herself, by an alliance with the pl bian sou of a wealthy banker, waa disowned bv her noble relatives, and left Englni with her young hus band, after finding a reconciliation wiih her family impossible. The in dignxoi father, in (he meantime, had to yield alibis other children to the avenger Death, and saw his brave sons, one fair daughter, descend one oy one. in a mournful procesaion lo the grave. Worn out, more through grief and disappointment, than by the infirmalies of age, the noble lord, feeling himelf netr the close of his own career desired to make his pence with his only child, and invest her and her desevnditnis wi h his lordly title nd vast domains, but alasl when he uome lo trace her up, the old man found death had been befcre him, nd only one grand daughter was left lo inherit his wealth and ances tral name. Sir George Hnstings was authorised, in her grand father's ok me, to offer this sp:endid inheri tance to MMBiatiA. Tsm condition were, that if still unmarried, lord Pet cy'a grand dxughter hould remain so, until her grand father found a suitor for hei, worthy lo be endowed with the sanction of his osent. Would she accept this brilliant offer on these terms? Learning from Mr. Arnand, ihai his adopted daughter was still free. Sir George had written to lord Percy of the tact, and suggested the propriety of making a will in her fa vor." This Inteltgence started and owrjojed Madalein beyond ezpres ion. Tha mystery that enveloped her antecedents was now made olear. She exulted in her noble birth, for it was another offering to lay upon the ahrin of her love. But when she fotnd (lie conditions oo which she was 10 receive thia title to nobility, and boundless wealth, bade her sacrifice that love, she answered with a noble corn; "Tell lord Pv rev. for his grand daughter, that she disdains the offer of hie lordly name, and untold wealth oa the conditions he proposes. He eiiled my muiber, for the crime of wedding where she loved, from his afleetions, aad suffered her to meet her death on foreign shores, and left her infart daughter to the protection of strangers, who proved truer than kindred, and when be would make aitonemenl for his sin be proposes to Je it til hie own terms. Mo 1 I do aot accept lord Percy' bounty. I will wed wbe I love, "and when I choose, and no man ahall choose for me." "Spoken liko a Hastings," said the Baronet in an "aside I i hoik my dear niece," be said to Mad alein, "Vou Ao chosen, Is it not so?" "Yes," leplied Miss Grey, ' it Is true. I have aot yet mentioned it to Papa, it is a recent eve .t." "I am sure." Sir Geoige continued, "I can claim tha pleasure nf having aeea the hap py man. Is .it Mr. Vane Vf "It is Mr Vana " answered Madalein, her indignation softening at the sound of dial dear name. "I will give you a week, to consider the offer of your grand father, Madalein." her uncle aaid, aa he roae to terminate the inter view at the enu of iha.1 lime, you nan give me your final decision." "I have already given my final and ir revocable dwoiBion ." M tdalein give hemeelf but Utile uneaaineaa about her patent to noksliiy. She had yoath, wealth and love for her inheri tance. whyJhould she covet more? Ska woniiered at her foster father's anaioua iinporluniliea that she ebouM accept (he conditions of her gr ind fathwr'a offer. 8he HttW thought that the wealth, the inhn . no from her Uiher. ha! all b . n iiandered in nopeleM speculation through the noaeat endeavors of Mr, Amard to incrvaas it. Mr. Arnard's drieetlon and preoccupied mann r, ainoe lo r re turn, had ettreettii Madaleln's notice, but h appealed so dltreead whan .he inOMlieil into the nau of his in. happiness, that she forbore to ies ion him. Nh reoieved loag aid leader epistles from Vane, glowing a ith eloquent protestations of love j.J impatsane and her ehief delight an. I occupation was inaiiswsrmg them Mm tohi htm of her noble lineage, In whl.ik she lo.i,.. bc4ud U was aomi thing the world esteemed, some thing more to bring bias, btft ske did not I Ht but that for her love she might buflonie the hennas of all conn nl wealthy home. What was in r tii'pitse and oliagrin when Mr. Arnard eoohl no longer soaoea1 from liar that aha wae not the heiress she oppoMtl afcerMrtf, but only the posses sor of a very modest competency! and that ihis was the reason of his anxie ty concerning her acceptance of her grand father's offer. This change in her fortune did not in the least influ ence Madalien's decision. She lost no time in informing her lover of it, but she did not insult bis manhood by an intimation that she believed herself Itss dear to him because she was no longer an heiress. The usual time elapsed, hat no reply came to Mada lein's last letter and anxious and dis appointed aad supposing Vane III, she wrote again but still no answer came. She was too unworldly to harbor a suspicion uu worthy of his honoi, but m weeks went oy, and no liaiogs came, and hope grew fainter, and conjecture failed to give a plausible answer to her fears, the slow convic tion grew upon her that her lover was untrue, but strange to My, tbe cause of bis inconsistency wu never asso ciated in her mind with her loss of fortune. Why dd he not write ? She had written again and again un til her pride forbade to do so sny more. Even her love and faith could Mod no apology for suoh neglect. She waa most wretched. No one should know of this, leaat of all Mr. Arnard, who enraged at her obstinacy in refusing her grand father's offer, had spoken sneeringly of her hastily formed attach men t for Vane as the cause of it and predicted that she would aa hastily repent it. Afraid ihat her unhappiness would be remarked. Madalein' pride came to her aid, and under a visit of auumed gaity and indifference she masked her aching heart, and no one knew how wearily it beat, as weeks and months pasted away and brought no clue to the mys tery of her lover's silence. How sick at soul she was of the part she felt compelled to enact duiing the day. but the might waa her own. and in the blessed seclusion of her chamber she was alone with her grief, and there, after loeking the door, and extinguish ing the light, as ihough it were some guilty secret, she sat down and com muned with it. She could only won der why he did not write ? but as all her answers failed to saiiafy her she would grow indignaat and persuade herself that she had acted unwoman ly in allowing horself to be won so easily, hut notwithstanding, her re morawful self accusations, and her in dignation towards her lover were sure to be followed by passionately tender recollections of him. of bis glorious beauty, of his fond love Tor her, of all his noble and endearing attributes and the blissful hours they had pass ed together. Did she icpent her ' has tily formed attachment?" No I she believed it was worth a life time, after sorrow but to have lived for this much joy. But time elapsed and brought no intelligence of Vane; even the period arranged daring their cor respondence for a visit passed with out bringing him, and Madalein be gan to consider the past a dream to beautiful and impossible to be real ised. She wns as one who having ciosMd a lovely sunlit Isndscspe, en joying, bat half unconscious of its beauties as she passed, had reached the shadow of a gloomy mountain be yond, and with backward glances wondered at tbe glories behind, but with steps advancing deeper and deep er into the shadow of the mountain Sir George Hasting's admiration of his ni ce increassd as their acquaintance progressed. He found herself reliant and premature, muoh beyond her years, and her personal charms, uni ted with her accomplishments and ae quirmebts made a complete conquest ol his heart He bad been greallyplens ed with Vane's patrician beauty and noble bearing during their short inter view, and aa he had uffered from disappointment in love, in early life, he felt the warmest consideration and sympathy for the lovers Though bom and reared an Englishman, much travel, a liberal education and a gen erous spirit hsd disabuMd his mind of the prejudices of rank and made him a cosmopolitan. He WM profoundly impressed with the noble simplicity of our republican institutions, the cnar acteris'.to independence of all classes of Americans, and regarded our young commonwealth M a growing giant, that at no very remote day would become the standard bearer of the nations of the world. He was not, therefore, undecided what course to pursue towards his high born niece and her republican lover on reoieving unexpected intellig nee of lord Percy's decease, who dying in the belief of his grand daughters exemption from all matrimonial restraint (for Sir George, waiting to lest Madalvlu's de cision, had not informed her grand father of her plebian engagement,) had endowed lo r with all nis estate, appointing Sir George Hastings her guardian, without whosu oonMnt ehe waa not to marry, the penalty of which inlriiigment being (he forUturo of her inheritance Honestly flunking thai the happiness and welfare of hie oeioe depended on his uoosent to her mar riage (having heard from Mr. Annul of the los i of her properly ) and hav ing every confidence in the superior ly of her judgment, and her ability to choose for herself In this important matter. Mattings made no delay in utiormmg her of the contents of her grand father's will, and his own will -ingneaa to aatt her In aeeepllng It on hvr own terms, A lew months ago tins imelligsnee would have given Madalein unbounded pleasar, but now what mockery it Memvd to bsr, this offer ol wealth and rank, what poor eom pen alion for blighted hope and love betrayed, Sir George oS erved with aurpriaa and dlMppoint meni the ooldneM with which she re ceived hi ii'lmgs "Do you not un deMtewd my love, you are now lady Grey and free lo wed when you ehose? "And if 1 choM not to wed at all1" replied Madeline. "Why ihu you srs lad Grey still at your pleasuio," I ltirn.il lir nnrle nnt knowinir what ......... .... i to think of this unexpected answer "I wonder." be continued in a play ful manner, "if my neioe has changed her mind and thinks that simple faith is no mate for "Norman brood?" Ah my child true hearts are better And if I have changed my mind." she said, interupting him, and smiling to hide the pain his words gave her, "is it not what the world expects of me?" "Great God ! so young, and yet so worldly I 1 did not expeol this of you Madalein. are you nincere?" "Never more so," she re plied, turning away with .nock gaity, for she felt her firraneM deserting her, and wm too proud to expose her se cret, and too jealous of her lover's honor to accuse him. Madalien's fa vorite recreation after tbe fatigue at tendant on her effoits to appear cheer ful during the day. was a stroll to the lake beyond a northern strip of woods which lay between Beechwood and the lake shore. Hitber she bent her steps as usual, one evening to ponder her fate, ("drab colored destiny," Miss Agnare would have said.) It wm early summer, and the herded clouds roamed in peaceful beauty over tbe blue pastures of the sky; the sweet country air fanned her vexed brow, and on the faint breese was borne the distant mellow lowing of sweet breath ed cows. The pastoral loveliness of the evening and the suene soothed her sad soul; she thought of her youth, her beauty, her wealth and rank, she pictured to I erself her English home, the "marble halls" of l.er proudances tors storied, and turrated and ivy bound, the vast domains of centuried parks, and English grass on which grazed antlered deer; the pleasant lakes where swarm majestic swan; the ruslio peasantry in picturesqu cos tume; the liveried servants coming at ber back, herself the lady of all these, and felt strong and proud. Why sboald the mourn ? Were not those things bettjr than love ? Love was but a cheat, a glorious lie! For a moment she exulted in the thought, but the memory of the pat sweept over ber, crying "what might have been, what might h ive been," and wrong her soul with such sweet an guish, that tears fell on the noble pic ture and dimmed and blotted its beau ty forever. After all she was but a woman and ibis mighty loe filled her soul like a great inougLt of immor tality and all the poor toys and bub bles of rank and wealth sank into pov erty before it. Proin the eminence of r . her prosperity she yet looked upward to where the star of love shone afar off; impoverished of love, how poor with all her wealth she felt. A she paced the pebbled shore wiih slow steps and thoughtful eyes, a shadow fell at her feet, and startled, looking up, the tall Dgure ot Alourton Vane i ao.j mat sue wouia ioiiow mm wine confronted her. With a cry of glad 'ends of the earth, (although the ge surprise and joyful recognition, which :Ography '.f his hopes embraced no sounded a triumphant defiance to her more traveling than is included in a pride, she sprang involuntarily to-1 bridal trip) and finally circling within wards him. but the next instant re- the limits of his most exacting ex- . ..... . . coiled, and with upraise l warning hands and haughty eyes, stood mo tionless and white as a marble statute. The sudden suspicion flashed upon her like an inspiration, that ber lover 1 a . was a mercenary lortune-hunter, lor it occurred to her, for the first time, at I that their correspondence had ceased winging back, and made summer nnd from the date of h-r informing him of' musio in his heart once more, the loss of ber wealth, and he now - made his appearance almost simulia- Border Ruffians in Baltimore Ear ntously with her return of fortune Murks of the Despotism of 81ave For moment Vane stood irressolute, j ry In the Monumental City, while all the crimson glory and bright- Xhe Baltimore American, of Satyr nss of expectation faded from his day furnishes ihe following report of the face, but the next he stood forward breaking up of a Republican BMÜM and throwing b.s arms around her, , tDJt cil of which W0 ,mWf) H,reR(1 drew her wuh loving violence to his had an account by telegraph.

"Can you not believe, that l hav uffered too when days, an1 weeks and months, passed away and brought no answers to my anxiou letters, and rumors reached m of your brilliant destiny, until at last grown deapera e with suspense and hope ilef-1 ed.

I dar ed t'i hope Madalein that the motive which influenced Mr. Arnard lo change his plan and make this con fession was your unhappiness, for he gave me no clue to it, but earnestly entreated roe to come to Beechwood and ittterceed with you to forgive him." Madalein, who had been so ag itated and worn by the trying events of the last few months, felt that nolh ing could ever astonish her again, and and received this unexpected intelli gence of her foster father's mansu vering with little surprise. She knew that the motive which had instigated him to seek her lover, and make this explanation, had been induced by the change in her fortunes under Sir George Hasting's auspices, that her uncle and foster father bnd been ma king mutual disclosures which had re sulted in the latter taking a sudden journey, which he announced was on important business, but which she lit tie dream d was to bring such happi ness to her. She perceived that Vane was yet ignorant of the turn her af fairs bad taken, for he went on to say, "I have not come, dearest, lo tempt you to refuse your grand father's splendid offer and share my meaner fate, bat I come to vindicate my love and truth to you, which ever will re main the same, even ihough, oh God I Madaline you reject iL" She had ris en from his embrace as soon as the irst shock of emotion had subsided, and stood with head erect and arm tightly folded, proudly gating on him. As the moonlight fell on the blond beauty of his hair, it seemed to her excited imagination a royal crown ol gold, and he a king at whose feet, the dowered daughter of an earl, she was w rthy to kneel. But what ever act of sell-immolation Miss Grey medita ted, in iew ol her lovtr's perfections, waa forestalled by one of those unpul , v of our common human nature. I i i. a, as. t m which force us in the direction of our inclinations, and without knowing how or why, she found herself in bis closely embracing srms, her head upon his bosom, vehemently protest ing that she would die for him (which was far more than he wished her to ! j . . .. i t J r . . , . pectutions, settleu down on the assu rance that she would cling to him 1 through life, and repose beside htm in idsath. But all this was very sweet ' flattery to Vane, whose hopes, like l.!J-La ....l-' . r t- f otros oeiore "tne winter ot nis dis content," bad flown away, now came ed member of the Society of Friends. Agreeable to notice, a number of the friends of Freedom assembled at Temperance Hall last night, but the meeting was of short duration. A number of persons opposed to the party were in the Hall, and before the organixation was completed some one proposed three cheers for Fremont, which wm followed by three groans, and three cheers were given for Fill more, and three for Riichansn A general melee then began, nnd the Hall was cleared in a fsv minutes, some of thu party escaping out of (he windows. Oneol the members of the meeliog succeed d in gelling out of the crowd with the loss of his coat, and was followed by a crowd nn to Baltimore street, where he took refuge in astore and left by the rear low But few persons were slruok. the oh jeot being apparently to bruak up the meeting without using serious person al violence. Though our clttsens are universally oppoMd the principles which the meeting advocated, the course pursued was disreputable, and oan only help the oa.tse it was inten ded to crush.

Wbiuht Sir- Since I wrote my last letter :j your Excellency, I have hsd the pleasure ot spending sn afternoon snd night in your city. I was plessed to witness the rapid growth and development of our Capitol. Formerly, trade was confined to river towns, but the building of railroads introduced a new era, and Commerce, "shitting, turn ed the other way." It wss the afternoon preceding the O'.d Line demonstration st the Tippe csnoe Bsttle-Ground, snd lesrning that Douglas, Cats, Breckenridge and other magnates were to speik, though I hsd made srrangemcnts to go Westward that night, I remained until the next day to learn irom the tips of those men the true principles of the party. Before I describe those speeches, sir, may I ssk you what fitness there is In an Old Line demonstration on that Battle-ground I It is my opinion, sir, that the Devii, much as divines of your church ssy of his meanness, wss aston ished above measure when Bright, Wil lard, Cass, Douglss snd Dickinson arose on that ground and lauded the memory of Harmon. He surely rubbed his hands with glee and said, "Well, well, this bests my time! I remember 1840 theae meo were then shouting British Whljrs,' 'Bank-bought Whigs.' 'Old Granny Petticoat Harrison!' Now. it's 'Noble Whig Parly' Brave old Whigs' -Glorious Henry Clay!' These are entitled to my pitchfork, split-foot and tail. Bright heads me, snd 1 alwsys did own up to Willsrd." But to that meeting. At an earlv hour, Senator Bright your much loved friend, Governor made his appearance. Almost immediate y he asserted that be honestly believed thst the design of the Republican orgsnisstion and its leaders in Congress, was the dissolution of the Union! This wu modest language to come from a Kentucky slaveholder to Indiana freemen! Heslsossid: "This canvass is essentially a contest between the North snd the South." AIo thst those with whom he scted, including old National Whigs snd Democrats from the North snd South, were in lav or of ihe Union as it is, despite North ern fanaticism. This wss the substance of sll thst waa said subsequently by Senator Cass in his dignifl d platitudes, Douglas In his half-drunken gasconade, Preston in hia stilted botnhsst, and v.mraelf in the partial repetition of that "asms old speech," endeared to all the people by a thousand recollection; Mr. Breck enridge in his really dignified snd cour teous remarks, Willsrd in his coarse ta ving and brutal falaehoods, and Helm in his mouthing nothings. Now, Governor Wright, I shsll nail thea fslseboods to the counter. I as sort that the Old Line party have gone into this contest with simply one grest principle, vis: the indefinite extension of slavery, and secondly, if you cannot succeed, I shall show that your leaders (for, Governor, you Northern politic isnshsve your leaders ind'drivers,) are prepared and determined to dissolve the Union. The first position I prove thus: Sen ator Bright. Ex-Officio Vioe President, the man whom Indiens Democracy de lights to honor, saya: "Thia canvaaa ia essentially contest between the North snd the South ." Admitting thst he ac te,) with and for Ihe South. The same sentiment, only more boldly ssid, is in the lollowing quotation from the procee dings of the Demo, racy of Farquier co., Vs.: 'Resolved, That the paramount issue) of thia curvsM is the slavery question, to which there csn be but two sides, the one held by the Blsck Kepub'.icsns, and the other by the Democracy, snd thst those who sre not lor us and with us, arc against us." Now is there anv concealment! Here the object of the struggle is openly avow ed. There Is no whining sb-jut tha Constitution, but a bold avowal we fight for slsvery; and son tell ua, sir, in your eloquent speech, that the De mocracy North and Smith Is one. It may be said this i selecting sn extreme Southern view. What asy ycu then, to the following from thst truly Democrst ic sheet, the N. Y Day Book. We repeat, slavery, negro slsvery, snd negro slsvery extension, is the sole question before the country, snd to be settled st the soprosvhing Presidentisl election. But the Demoorscy sre nnt eeposed to tlavtry exlcntton. There u not one tlngl' Democrat in the whole North opposed tu th extension of Southern socie ty, or io calkd extension of slavery " Will you, sir, repudiate thlsl It is th language of sn organ of your party, pub lished on fres soil. It boldly sacrlbes slavery extension to you snd your ssm ci nr., and asys thst in the whole North NOT ONE SINGLE DEMOCRAT is opposed to ll ! ! I know that good old Democrats say .they sre opposed to the extension ss much as we sre. But u course they are hypocrites, or elss thay sre duped by the party letders. The Richmond Enquirer ttstes still more openly the groimd lo be occupied t y the I).- morracy of the two sections, and as Democrtcy Is one every whee, ef ciime you. Mr . endorse it. Yet the blush ol shamn must mantl even your cheek. No wonder, sir, thst you ssy, sfter sndoralng ths following extract. t'-at you would have Hie preaehar who would prMib atfiiiut the pmiouiluni of Ksutas hsnged, li.it. lr, please read from tbe Rich mond Enquirer: " We must show thst African slavery Is s moral, religious , nstursl,and, prob ably, III the general, s iir-r.snry Inslltu Mat of aocley.

Northern Democrats nsed mat o. thus far. They do net seek to extend slavery, only aoree to it extention at a matter of rijfkt onomtfrntl, They may preler fhslr own soelsl Institution system to ours.

They cannot consistently maintain that slave is immoral, inexpedient and profane, snd yet continue to eubmit to its exten sion." Now, sir, hsving demonstrated th first, let me briefly demonstrate the eec otd, snd show that tbe men with whom you act, those noble Southern Whig and Democrats, are avowed diaunionieu, and ready to step out of the Union, on less the bondage of the blsck man shsll be extended everywhere . I shall give vou here s clsss of quotations from Southern men, to give them from Nor thern Old Lmers is needless they sre mere echoes. Pleae read wbst follows. By Sena tor Yulee.of Florida: "For my part. I am ready to proceed to extreme measures, even to the disso lution ol the Union." By Senator Brown, of Mies.: "If the Wilmot proviso is sdopted.it will raise a storm thst will .sweep awav Ihe Union, and I pray God devoutly it win ao so. By Mr. Morse ol Louisiana: "The Southern man whs will stand ep and ssy be is for the Union, 'now and forever,' is more dangerous to the peo ple he represents .than those who are in open hostility. If California be tram meled with a preamble declaring the territory now free, I am willing to dis solve the Union.' By Mr. Stanton, of Tennesee "When the Wilmot Proviso is adorn ed, I and the South are ready to walk out of tbe Union." By Senater Butler, or South Carc'i ns: "I do not make the salvation of the U nion ike persmouut question." By Senator Mason, of Va.-. "It is time the yoke was thrown off snd the question settled." By Mr. Colcok, of Gaorgia: "If ths Wilmot '.proisvo should psss in sny form, 1 will introduce s bill for the dissolution of the Union " By Mr. Mead, of Va.: "If you exclude us, I sm not willing to submit. W intend lo have the lend peaceably if we ean, forcibly if we must." By Mr. McWiUie. of Mies.: The people of the South know their rights, and will maintain them at all hazards, even should disunion result. The South must defend their rights, even at th expense of blood." The following resolution wsssdopted at a Congressional caucus of Southern Democrats, held inWasbington, in Jan uary, 1840: "Rssolved, That the dissolution of tha Union is preferable to the submission of thel South to the Wilmot proviso." Now, sir, with such s Record a Dem ocratic Record of Infamy, Treason snd Disunion, how dsre you and your col leagues stand up and denounce better men ss seeking the dissolution of the Un ion? Sir, you are beaded with men who boldly avow treason! You ssy you can make the same speech North snd South. Thst Is well, for unless you can make the ame one, what ooe can you make) But you stare not go 8uth and say the man who advocates disunion Is a .Trait or! Yon dare not. Shall I not say the Old Liner who says he belongs to a party desiring to perpetuate the Union of Slates is t mistaken msnl Sir, you close an administration in soms respects honorable snd useful, most sadly and shamefully. You close it banded with and laboring for the suc cess of sn avowed disunion party! Yours in sadness, ISAAC RIGHT How They Cheer. A New Yorker was recently sent out West by th National Democratic Asa oc.stion st Washington, to ascertain whst was best lo be done In order to get up sn effective opposition to Republican ism. He came, he ssw, but did not con quer. After attending vsrlous public meetings, snd feeling the public pulse, he wrote bsck to ths Association thst It wss utterly useless to attempt to stem th tide fiat waa setting in for Fremont and Freedom, snd closes his letter iu tbs following slniflcant style: "Obedient to my instructions, I have attended vsrious Republican meetings throughout tbe different Western States, and am forced to conlee that the thusissm I hsve witnessed speaks poor ly for the success of our esuee.

Moreover, separation involves the abandonment of nationality a rending aauodor of that glorioua flag which now command respect on every ses, and is s signal of protection to s commerce whie.i girdles the world with wealthy argosies. Whst nstion which now stand io awe of the United States would care to do homage to aay of the petty Republic of a ence glorious confed eracy! It is not folly but sheer midsummer madness to talk of se per sting from a confederacy, which in union is all pow erful, lo become as distinct governments the scorn snd contempt of the whole civilixed worM. Mark further what fol lows. The Government of the United; States, during th pressure of the Mex- ican war. required a loan. It was ta ken at once and at a high premium. Recently, th Bute of Virginia, bv merely threatening diaunion, found her bonds unsaleable in foreign markets, snd if she wss capable of carryin out her threat, thev would aot command purchssers st sny price. But is the Enquirer, while hurling its denunciations sgainst all who differ from it in opinion, quite certain tat it speak h sentiment of Virginia? There is a hardy, iransmontane population within the limits of that Stats, which, notwith standing th fierce pugnacity displayed by our cotemporary, can never b rous ed to join its rebelious cry. Still leas could it be brought to carry out, in prsc rice, the treason whieb the Enquire presche . If amy uuion at all take place, it will 6s the secession of Wettern Virginia from the seaboard counties- but not Irom the Union. Csrolina fire-eaters have pointed oat, in magniloquent sentence, the admira ble capabllitlM of ths South forcsrry ing on a defensive war. They hsve ahown how batteries, placed in this pus. and rifles bristling oa thst hillside, could work destruction oo un advancing foe. CoL Brooks baa. moreover, adviaed, ia the event of Fremont's election, that a gsllsnt army of Southerners, equipped with bowie-knife snd revolver, hall march in grim prooaaion to Washing ton, and siese upon the Government sr chleves snd treasury. Our impulsive neighbor of the Enquirer straightway blows a bugle-blast, snd raises the war cry of th old Covenanters, "To your tents, O Israel!" But neither th de fensive capacity of the Southern 8tatea. nor the teoipting suggestion of Col. Brooks, nor "the windy suspirationa of forced breath" of the Ri:hmond En quirer, can stimulate patriotic people, proud of their national renown, glory ing in their national prosperity, rever- ncing their national destiny, aad sen sible of tbe power which that national ity insures, to aally forth on o Quixotic sn expedition, or even to attempt to crush out ths memory of the past, and the hope ot the foture, by an act wbieh would eairaii upon their posterity a bit terer destiny than thst which befel the children of Adam under th weight of the primeval curs. It Is confidently asserted by th D morracy that their great strength Iis st th South, na accordingly they claim for Mr. Buchsnsn every Southern Sum. W do not car to wsk them, justyt, from o pleasant yal delusive a dream, though we csn sssurs ium it wss not sn "snglfs whisper" which ssado their slumbers j lyou with such tidings.
