Hon. Reuben uavis, ol Mississippi, is at the head of this scheme. of The Speaker of the House has appointed the following as a Committee of one from each State, to whom the Hou- ordered a reference of that part of the President's Message re ferring to the existing crisis in the Confedera cy : Corwin, of Ohio, chaiiman; Millson, of Vir ginia ; Aihtus, of Massachusetts ; Winslow, of North Carolina; Humphrey, of Xew Yrk; Boyce, Of South Carolina; Campbell, cf tenn syfvnnia ; Love, of Georgia ; Ferry, of Con necticut; Davis, of Mary lund; Robinson, of Rhode Island ; Whitely, of Delaware ; Tap pan, of New Hampshire ; Stratum, of Kcw Jersey; Bristow, of Kentucky; Morris, of Virginia; Nelson, of Tennessee; Dunn, of In diana; Taylor, of Louisiana; Davis, of Mis sissippi ; Houstou, of A'abama ; Morse, of Maine; Phelps, of Missouri; Rust, of Arkan sas; Howard of Michigan; Hawkins, of Flor ida ; Uaiuiitoo, of Texas ; Wushburne, of Wisconsin; Cuitis, of Iowa ; Burch, of Cali fornia ; Windooi, of Minnasota ; Stout, of Ongfm. , , . TTfe otiject of this moemsnt is to patch op another Compromise to which to anchor tfi frail barque ol 'the Union for anothei orief sea son But wc venture to submit that the game of "Compromise" has had its day and is effect ually played out. What else have we been doing but compro mising for the last forty years?" The spirit ot Abolition aggression developed itself when Missouri applied for admission into the Union; and its rapacity was appeased for the time, by the "Missouri Compromise" which wounded the compact of Union in its vital part and inflicted a stigma upon the institu tions of the Southern States. The North il lustrated its honor and good faith by insisting upon the enforcement of that compromise when it would oj erate to the exclusion of the South from the Territories : and by repudia ting it when its observance would have secur ed to her a sharty f those Territories The repeal of the two-thirds rule was an otaer concession 1 i Northern fanaticism. When that object of Abolition and of Soutb 35 -"nservative" desire, was attained, we were told that peace would spread her gentle tvii!., cjF tlic land. In 185U, another "Compromise" was found to be necessary to "save the Union." Cali fornia wist admitted with her illegally and ir regularly fonulU Constitution because t pro hibited slavery from thfl immense Pacific re gion for the purchase of which the South had contributed aan than her due proportion of blood and treasure Iciou" was shorn of a large portion of Oer territory that it might be dedicated to frcesoil and a measure was passed pli!ing the institution of slavery under the ban of the common government, in the form of a law prohibiting the selling of slaves in the neutral ground of 'ho District of Co lombia where every citizen of the United States has a right to stand upon a footing of periet'tvquality. To indemnify thf South for thes wanton and grievous inflictions upon her eights and. tier honor, the fugitive slave law was passed a measure to which she was entitled under the Constitution. Ijut, even the poor boon oi the faithful cxcutitfi of this law has been denied to her. Thirteen non slaveho!ing States, have absolutely and un conditionally nullified it i and the Southern man who goes into a Northern States, to re- so at the peritbf his lif.i his liberty. So much for Compromising ! The South is at last sick and tired of the vile business. It is another nam'- for Southern sulsinission and dishonor and for Northern treachery and per fidy. Tho labors of the above Commuter will re- rcsult in smoke. The attempt to d"ise an other "plan of adjustment" vigl have one goo jffect It still convince the basest Union ist in the South, that nothing wilt appease the grasping spirit of the Black Republican party, but a complete, surrender of all the South holds dear upon the altar of a Union that no longer subserves the purposes of its creation. Mississippi is represented on the C tmniittee by Gen. Reuben Davis. Whatever we may think of the propriety of formi.t g nucha Com mitUc itnd of enacting.

Message of the Governor of Louisiana. The Legislature s$ Louisiana assembled in extraordinary session on Monday last, with a view to the sectional issues. The Message of the Gevernor takes higs., stroug ground and encourages the hope that Louisiana will stand upright in the mighty crd'mn of States that are hastening forward to rescue their rights and institutions from the clutches of the fanatical, intolerant and unscrupulous North ern Black Republican majority which has seiaed the reins of the federal government. After a brief buJ clear statement of South ern grieveances, and of the thick-gathering calamities which raust now upon the South as te resulU)f Black Republican rulo, Gov. Moore recommends the immediate call of a Convention of the people of Louisiana with a view to the adoption of such measures for their safety and protection as the occasion de mands. He statqtltat while a- Conference or Conventiua of : tho slaveholding States ia dewraljU', ti iwtioss-ef Coi'iiwa iiold not be "unreasonably postponed" to secure siy'i conference, and that in any Kent the final step should be taken "htft the day arrives for the inauguration of a Mack BtjfAtican Pre' identy This policy, if adopted by the peoJe of Louisiana, will secure to Mississippi and the other States that design acting, their co-operation. That it will be adopted, is manifestly in dicated by the temper of their Legislature. A Baton Rouge correspondent of the Picayune, a paper of exceedingly moderate tone, writes : Most of the members have already attired. They are generally very quiet in the enu&Sfe- atinns nf tlinir Koiititnont in rpfruril In thtSi- question of secession ; but the fact that large majority are in favor of the convention ! that is be calledWrM'w in .Sow "fftpaH rate Sta n.- ..-; -.l-s i 1.-1- -- undoubted. m & aut. ucuoii, unt ssiwnwnnssEec eResswa, is The following eUlacts from the Message of Gov. Moore, setting forth his recommenda tion for a call of a Convention his opinion that secession should ,be a fact accomplished before the 4th of March and that in any event Louisiana should go to the assistance of any sister Southern State upon which the arm of federal power might be laid to prevent her assumption of her reserved powers will be perused with much satisfaction by the great body of our readers : Its-irder, therefore, thtt the future position and proper policy of the State of Louisiana may receive tho thoughtful and calm consid eration which it deserves, and that her citizens may have an opportunity of giving form and expression to their views in this regard, 1 recommend to your honorable bodies, to pro vide for the election of members of a conven tion, as soon as may.k? proper with due regard to time, to yhom shall be committed the duty and responsibility of determining that position and shaping that policy so far as affects the relations of Louisiana to the Federal Government. That o&pvention will meet consult and decide 1tetriout rfigi&d to my opinions, aft-contained in this nressagc, but I do not tHhk it proper, under existing emer gencies, that I, the Chief Executive officer ol the State, sntiuld omit the expression of my convictions as to the course which d"ur State ought to pursue. I have earnestly dircd that a TOnfifajice or convention or the slavehofcling SRfttes should be held in order that1 they might counsel together and act tstedly in this graved crisis. I still desire tliat such a conference ! shall be had, if practical'! in point af time. Louisiana ought not to reluse to meet her sis ter 3laveholding States in -Council, and there -unitedly determine uponafinn demand to be matte ot tftr oi thei h testae . ttMi ot their obnoxious legislation, and the guarantee and security ft those rights which have so long been pereistenryscfuscd. Still, although such a course has seemed to my mind sirable, and I had hoped that a practical jam pratSC ble plan might ere (his faave lieen'su-'trests to I accomplish, this obiect.T do n&tMitk the a&on of Iouisiana should bewtreasona'oty postpijnetl under the mere hope or expectation that such a body would be at some distant day convened. It sltoukl meet ojonce, ani aetermine af (nvs, before tlte day arrives for the inauguration of a Black Bepublican President. I do not think it comports with the honor and self-respect of Louisiana, as a slavehold ing State, to live under thei Government of a Black Bepublican PreHen$- I will not dis pute the fact that Mr. Lincoln is elected ac cording to the forms of the constitution ; but the greatest outrages, both upon public and private rights, have been perpetrated under the forms of law. This question rises high above ordinary politicalconsiderations. It involves our present honor and our future existence as a free and independent people. It mttf be said that, when this Union was formed, it was intended to be perpetual. So it was, so far as such a term can be applied to anything human : but it was also intended to be administered in the same spirit in which it was made, with a scrupulous regard to the equality of the sovereignties composing it. We certainly are not placed in the position of subjects of a European despotism, whose only door of escape from tyranny is the right of revolution. I mairdain the rigid of ew:h State, to secede from the I'nicm, and, themfore. what ever course Louisianm may pur.. nOw'if any attempt should le nmde by Hie fleral GbSteni merit (o coerce s jwn'yii Stated and compel her to submission to ai authority which she has ceased to recognize, I sltotdd unhesitating ly recommend that Louisiaia assist Iter sirter State with the same alacrity and couraf 'that the Colonies assisted ?ach other in their strug ele acainst the despotism of the Old World If I am not mistaken in public opinion, the convention, if assembled, iei7 decide that JUu isiana will not submit to tlte Presidency of Mr. Lincoln.

How can we offer a word of comfort or of consolftion to those who are so sadly bereav ed. Unler such an affliction sympathy is un availing to lift up the heart bowed down with grief, and words are inadequate to soothe tne pain of a wound too deep for human remedies. God can heal the broken neart, nut numan aw terances are al' hus'ed in tlie outbreaking of inconsolable grief. Only those of us who knew her well, know how much her friends and relatives have lost. So bcautifol, so" truthful, so gentle, so kind ia all relations of life, so affectionate, so self-sec -rifiring, so conscientious in the performance of every Christian duty, so patient o sor ing and so resigned to whatever of trial she was called to endure, her whole life and ctar ncter was a beautiful exemplifloatioo of W tuanity in its most exalted form.
