Such is the caption of an ar ticle which met our notice day or two ago, in violent party piper, loulh of us. We allude to it tor the purpose of saying that the - author of the entitnent,no matter who he is, or where he hail from, know but little of the deep eaied love of Union, which reign in the heart of the American people of all jiirlies, If he supposes that the breaking up of any psrlv as such could sound th death of knell or thi Union. It i a gross and outrageous libel upon the people to sup pose that they ere so wedded to any party, as that the breaking Up bf Hint party should operate in theTUvisinn of the Union. Thar is no party so pure, o elevated, so devoted to the Union, that iu instant and utter ex tinction would so phrenzy and madden the people, that they could find no solace for their wounded pride and love of party, that thry would not atop short of a dissolution of onr glorious American Union.

Stale. A gettrtactlng of the stockholder of the Souther) Pacific Railroad Company, will be held LouirilIe,Kaluckjr,oo Thursday, th Illinois. The Nashville Union snd A- merican contaios the following philosophic paragraph about the result in Illinois: "There aeema to be no doubt that the Ieir. islsture of Illinois will contain a majority of nve iu each nous in lavor or a re-election of Judge Douglaa to tha Senate of the United Slate over the candidate of the Abolition ists, Mr. Lincoln. This is certainly a very great penonal triumph. We wish we felt able to call it a Democratic triumph. Judge Douglaa ha some friends even among the Democracy in Tennessee, who, while dis agreeing with him on some points, strongly sympathize with him in hist contest with Lin coln, and believe that hia futuro political life will tie without reproach. While we have none of that "generous confidence" which excuses error with the hope of future amend ment, we shall yet bo glad to see the hopes of our friends rather than our own fears realized." Considering that the whole power of the administration ha been given to defeat Dou glas, and, consequently, to elect hi aboli tion competitor, and that the paper quoted from ia an administration journal, giving it an unqualified support iu nil things, the above paragraph exhibit degree of pleasantry, if not commendable, at lenat amusing.

Th following article, which w find in the Memphia Bulletin, of the 3d, so fully ex presses our own opinion of Mr. Seward, and hi foolish snd wicked course, that w wik lingl; adopt it as our own : Sk WARD AND THR SoUTH. William II. Seward is not entitled lo the prominence given him in the South. The most that can be said correctly of him is, that he is the most tulented anti-elavery man in the North. He is not, therefore, Hie most influential. He heads a ruction ss dors tierrrtt Smith. The bulk of the republican pnrty do not follow hi lead, nor recovniae Mm as the represen tative ot their opinion and policy. They correctly regard him a in unprincipled in triguer for the Presidency, without the sub stratum of single national sentiment to commend hint lo the support of tiis Ameri cau people, and have, therefore, kept him thus lr . .i . V. background tlie presidential field, black with impotent passion, frothiug with harm less rage and all alono with his woe. He struggles, it is true, to the footlights of the atiigti erected by the snli-aliivery architects of the North, to spit hi abolition virus at lie audience or the Union, but ia Hung back lo th rear to resume his appointed place. Seward is nearly worn out He ha been upon the alage too long, and hia role is near ly ended. Hia last aupenrunce will entitle him to be taken off the alage and deposited in the asylum of decayed actor. Hi own audience, the resounding North, are hissing him on lo the crave thnl inpes lo receive all who enterluio treasonable thoughts or the Union. He has presumed too far upon the frea- oil sentiment or the INorlli tiy avowing sen timents which every sine man north of Ma son snd Dixon's line, knows, if generally made the basis of action w ill drive the South to disunion. Every man in the North knows that hi Inst manifesto is but a d)lng strug gle to attain the Presidency, and that if he fail new, the winding sheet, th hearse and the grave are all that remain for him. Des perate as his plunges are, they are perfectly harmless, for there is a wall of public senti ment enclosing him, and over whose A iming battlements he can never leap. We do not, and cannot aymputhise with those journals of the South that seem to regard Su ward as nothing less than a chained monster to be turned loose to devour the South at a single meal, when hia keepers shall deem the time come to strike the chains from his limbs. We have nothing to apprehend from him but ebulilioiis of race, and the noise of the death. rattle in his throat Nor do we, or can we aymputise with those who deem that, in otder to correct pupiic sentiment in the North, the obliteration of all political divis ions in the South is necessary: that we must become s unit democrats lo Irighten the Noith back to their wits. Nor are we of those who regsrd the people or the North as cowards, or deititotn of personal pride and s proper degree ol'self-resect, to be threaten ed with impunity, and kicked when conven ient, into such policy as we may dictate I North and by the North, without isoumern interference. They iiiuhI determine for themselves whether or not they will make the destruction of Southern slavery a funda mental condition of remuiniui; in political, if not in fraternal relatione with the South. If conservatism shall be overthrown and the apiril of the Union lie ruthlessly annihilated, and the South w ill need no bugles to rally her suns. We sre, to w hatever party we may be attached, s unit when the tread of the oppressor shakes our hills and the shad ow of disaster fling themselves over our plains. Lfoal Advertising. Mississippi wss the first Slate in the Union, we believe, to at tempt to Interfere with th business interests of printers, by establishing a rate beyond which they should not charge, for the inser tion of sny legal advertisement inaerted in their papers. We notice in our Jackson, Mis sissippi exchanges, that Mr. Ware, of Rankin county the free Stale.as it used to be called ha introduced "a bill to repeal the law regulating the fees of printer for publishing leo -I notices." That is a sensible move on the part of Mr. Ware, and we hnpe to see the legislature of our sister Stain have the good aense to pass his bill. It was from the legis lature of Mississippi that the wiseacres of this Stale, a few years since, undertook, by law, to regulate the price which the owners of presses and types should charge for their labor. The'misernble, shnrl-siglited folly thus inaugurated in Mississippi, and subse quently adopted in Tennessee, still remains unrepealed upon our statu'e bonk. To the honor of Mississippi, we record this honest effort In blot this disreputable law Irom her code, and to place i rioters upon s fair and equal fooling with other trades snd profes sions. We hope, at least in this, to see Ten nessee follow her example. Having followed Hint State in a wrong movement, we hope our next Legislature will not be slow to fol low them in a prompt and energetic retreat from S.ist wrong. Aash. Daily jVirs.

Ijist year he predicted lo everybody that the revulsion wa s mere panic, and he believed In prophet Seward's Vaticination, that it would disappear as suddenly t il occurred. lis assured the despondent that the spiing business would restore every thing, snd when it failed, then he fell back upon the fall, and now when that has collapsed, he isqui'e santruinesbout next spring. It would be just as well for Mr. Cobb lo omit the treasury report this year en tirely, or to give the country results without illustration, which hardly pay the printer. If he will defer hia arguments unlii next year, the opposition will acre to relieve the gov ernment of all the expense of publication. We don t want any belter evidence to satisfy our people why they shall take French leave of the Democracy. Labor Deposit or Counterfeit Mont. The Wheeling (Vs.)

FEDERAL POLITICS asd THE SLAVE RY" QUESTION. rFrost the New Tee Herald One or the most refreshing, comprehen sive, conservative, suggestive and instructive speeches on federal politics, in connection with th slavery question, that wa have ever published or ever read, we spread before our readers this morning. We refer to th speech of Senator Hammond, delivered to hi con stituent at Uarnaell Court House. South Carolina, ths other dny. Contrasted with the late abolition harangue of W. II. Seward st Rochester and Rome, it present us, In the boldest relief, th differwc between th view of a calm and inquiring statesman and th desperate electioneerlM tricks of an am bilious and unscrupulens deMagogn. In Us experience hav chsngwd UfSoiiVC laroflua nulliher into ths moil poveft(y advocate of union, peace and harmony; e Ibe other ease, the Kansas agitation apptr e have trans formed the coolest snd shrSwfiest of our anti slavery leaders into Hi moil fiolish excesse of fanaticism. .-f ') leaving the views of Sv'nilor Hammond upon Ksnsas to speak fey themselves, w turn to the broader politit.-f issues of the future which he so ably dfettissear He be lieves that the South can slU maintain herself w illtio the Union, and node the constitution "control its action in UrW affairs;" and yet he concedes, subeliruthRy, that the ex tension of slavery within swfpreaent territo. rial limits has reached iU terminus; that Mexico snd Central Anerieayue wholly una vailable for slave SUtee,di "cannot be touched without contamination," and that Cuba itself is "forbidden fruit." Nor i this all; for while he fully rvtigtiie the con tinually increasing pressureJof Northern free labor, from our constant accessions from Europe, he utterly opposes the retaliatory chemeof the revival ef th African ilnve trade, as impracticable and' visionary. He is eatisfied with the sclf-sustiiulng resources of the South ss she stands, olid look with dis trust upon Cub a gravryard of negroes, the demand for which uptn the Southern State would be more prejuiVcial than profit able I But th most conspicuous view in which Mr. Hammond presents the success and se curity of slavery in Hie Sooth is In connec tion with the practical results which have followed (he abolition excitement and ex perimenta of England and France, and th thirty year of our Nurtherrt 'abolition agita tion. ders, and thai while the farmer has been driven to the coolie syslemfof slavery, the latter has openly returned tj the African sys tem and tratlic. Within the same interval our political Northern agitation has not only resulted in doubling the value of Southern laves, but has brought about a union of the South in defence of the institution, which renders it, in connection wilKMlie necessities of commerce, perfectly safe tnd impregnable for the future, and entirely competent to protect itself w ithin or without our existing confederacy. Best or all, no doubt, to the mind of Mr Hammond, is the conviction which he enter tains thnl thore can be no snti-alavery issue in the future upon which "the abolitionists of thi country can ever muster their legion ss they did in 1856." We incline to a con currence in this opinion, and to believe that henceforward, to I860, liie practical issues or tho government and tits practical exigencies of the country will come more snd more piominently into the foreground, until nig gers snd the nigger agitation are entirely su perseded in the reconstruction of parlies and party questions for the Presidency. That Kansas-Nebraska box of Pandora hasdons its work of mischief, North and South, and the conservative people of both sections, with "the sober second thought," will repent and atons for their late debasing carousals of sectional excitement and folly over this mis erable experiment of Presidential intriguers. The only remaining obstructions of any moment to a pacification upon the shivery question are W. II. Seward, his new aboli tion platform, niidwlle sectional Presidential clique whose object is to thrust him forward as the anti slavery candidate of the North n"-" - r-w J"Ats in the Sou'.h. Upon such sn organization of parti-.- in 18G0, all the pleasing anticipation of i uoIi conser vative men us Mr. Hammond may be born down in the fierce war between sections and sentiments, North and South, upon slavery. We believe, hovuwer, that unless thi arch agitator, Se'.variTIshall be caat out by his psrty, he and his party will iu the end be overwhelmed with something of those divis ions and disasters which they would bring upon the Union. The curtain is lifting upon the great drams of the future.

How beautiful and manly is that pow er by which the resolute man passes unmov ed thrutigh tho dangers. - Sir William Walker,(th Filibuster) we see, has arrived at Washington, but whether to "call out" the President of the United Status, for recently "proclaiming" him, or not, does not appear. The General, however, is expected in this city in the course or a day or t'vo, to speak for himself. It is expected that the errand of this model manifest destiny man in New York has some thing In do w ith another attempt to enlist a few hundred "young and able bodied" men, to "develop thu agricultural resources of Ni caragua;" but it is difficult lo believe that there is any foundation for the suspicion. Not tin. L Walker is not just as much of a fillibiister ss ever, but that we do not believe he can drum up fools enough in New York lo storm n barber' shop, much lea to sub due Nicaragua. Ilisformerexpeditions were productive or an immense qunntity or dupes, who still survive in this neighborhood, snd whose recollections of sweet William's bad tieatmenl, we funcy, are sufficiently fresh snd vivid to operate as s potent counteractive to any scheme of his for "Irying it on" again. Ilurnt children have a proverbial prejudice against fire, and, w e repent it if the General is coming to New York, in the expectation that the day of dupes is not yet gone by snd not being gone by that it is still posai ble for him to drum up recruits here he might as well stay w here he is. His journey "due north" will not pay expenses. In New York, even among "tho people that dou'l sleep in houses," he is looked upon os a "lame duck." .Yfir York Express. Join Water to Cure Scalds.

The morrow wa thanksgiving, snd from early morn had Mrs. llanti been busy pre paring for tha great dinuer of tho coining day. More than two months before, sh had promised Sammy, that "if he wa n good boy. nnd behaved himself," he might go to his grandfather I-ec's lo spend Thanksgiving. And the motherless child hud hoped and planned, and been happy upon the evants ol that dsy. He had many liniee gone to bed supperless, and never cried at nil, because he fell asleep thinking of the dinuer ho should have at his grandfather's. AlthoiiL-h but two miles away, his step mother seldom allowed him to go there, be cause, as she averred, "They set him up against her, and made him look uglier than ever." But once in a while she was obliged to let him go, for fear that people would "talk about it." She was s first-class mem ber of the church in Inglcnook, snd her praise for charitable deeds and kindness to the poor, was in all the neighborhood. rne was one of those chttaliana, wnoi ' rigm hand know what the left hand doetb," aud whose religion w as for th pruis of mail, r..ther than the approval of God; and whoe judgment I leave fur a just Judge to pro nounce nt s coming day.

No human friend knew of the wrongs done io ins cuiiiiisn na ture: of Ihe harsh repressing of all exuber ance and joy; and of the bitterntsa wh'uh grew op in his heart toward nil but his grandfather. He was like his mother, and sitting on her father's knee, he had been told I,, the, old man how irentle on J lovely she was, snd that shs was with angels now, and he s motherless boy. So the young child's heart clung to the old man who wss kind to him, and ths great boli day of the year was that upon which he could gel sway from the sound of h'.i step mother's lrfiliB. nil J th fear of her hand whi n he could leave the chill fireaide l home, where he always sat behind the new family groupe, e r ' and would climb upon lbs Up of old Mr. Ue, and with his soft curls lying close to the w hite hair of the old man, listen lo the to. rie told of hi mother, snd then hsve a nice supper upon the round table, drawn clo to 11,. iir..
