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
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.

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'
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-

large majority are in favor of the convention !

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

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.

been pereistenryscfuscd. Still, although such
a course has seemed to my mind sirable,

a body would be at some distant day convened.

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,

The debate in the Senate, to-day, was full

men who heartily hate ea'h other, and who
would seem to bo panting even for each others

No Ground to Stand Upon.

but the other day that Cm Bancs' ttepubliraa
members in her LefMnture voted in a body
against repeatug cr moilifying the obnyxious
measure. In I'luladelphia, a few days since,
a meeting was held to devise the ways and
utters of ''saving the Union;'' hut when the
real spirit of the meeting wtr, pat l, I its lest,
a motion in fttvor nfscinding the iiuiiifica
tionaws of that Suns, was voted down bv
an overwhelming major'ty; thus showing that
the meeting was decide . iy in favor of a Union
but not of preserving (h- t uion which our
fathers formed "to establish justice and sei'ure
domestic tranquility.'' In his seat in the
Jenate, John P. Hale, one of the chosen ora
cles of Black Republicanism, arrogantly pre
sented to the South the alternative, of tamely
submitting to a Northern free negro despotism
or of being coerced to live under su a rule
at the point of Northern bayonets.
With truth, therefore, has the New York j
loumal of Commerce sate that Southern
Unionists have no ground whatever to stand

mercy and toleration would he idle, for Black
Bepublican faith is worse than Panic; but even
this valueless boon is denied them.

The Sespbnse.
The New York Times is reckoned among
the most moderate of all the Black Repuli .can
org.tns; and hence due weigh; must lie given
tm its utterances. It does not evince the
slightest symptom of toleration for the ptvp
osition that the I'nion must tie saved by the
repeal of the "personal liberty," or nullifica
tion laws that arc written upop the statute
books of no less than thirteen Northern States.
Se far from recommending the repeal of those
infamous enactments which have alreidy vir
tually rj&itroyed the Union of tlte Vonttita

gress "amend the fugitive slaveduw, and that
remove the rausei nf those bills."

tide has set in which the people have a right
to congratulate themselves upon "a tide
which promises to bear ui'on its surface rr ich
more of comfort to the South than the rciieal
of all the personal liberty laws ever cacttd.
By our telegraphic report yesterday it will le
seen that the flow of gold from New York to
'the South has commenced, and that about one
million of dollars have betn'sant since ,ist
Saturday. Here is a turning olthe tide worth
talking about. The South no more buys the
manufactures of the Xorth and the conse
quence is our cotton, our toLUcco anu our
sugar are not tischanged for Northern manufacture.--
but must be paid for in gold. Our
cotton must be had, by the people oPXc i
York, either for themselves or their European
correspondents and there will lie much more
gold flowing in this direction, almost a con

purely sectional candidate for ttw Presidency 1
upon the singh i.La f hostility to the i-ghta

appear strano lo Iiiti that there should lie
such imminent danger of a d'tsorutioii jf the

principle ipon which Mr. Lincoln had boon
elected. The issue, and never in iny presi

was wliethcr equality elwuld be the idea af this

"Oh Thou who driest the mourner's tear,
How dark this world wouk) be.
If, when oppressed and wounded bare,
We could not fly to Thee."
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

was called to endure, her whole life and ctar
ncter was a beautiful exemplifloatioo of W
tuanity in its most exalted form.
