As for liheti and such men, they do the .South more harm than good. The Democrats know that, had the doctrines of a 11'rrid interpretation of the constitution and of Slates' rj,S which form the fundamental principles of the republican creed been faithfully carried out, lhe U nion would never have been in danger; and they show their confidence in such principles by clinging- to ihem and the name and org.mia.uion wilh which thev have Income identified. While on the other haiiu the Whigs, conscious that iheir cause is in a bad way, setk any port in a s'.orm, with such fishy Democrats as ihey can seduce by a plausible- name. Those who choose the VVhiji Union party, without principles, are, of course, at liberty to do so the National Dem ocratic parly, u ith coiistitutienal principles, is good enough for us. If the Union can be saved by the constitution, the Democratic party can save it; with nut the constitution, it is uol wofta saving." We commend the foregoing to the particular atten tion of the Editor of the Raleigh Register. Can that Editor answer it ? THE THIRD DISTRICT. Our friend Badger, of the Hornet's Xest, is " weed ing a wide row " among the Consolidationists of the Third District. In his issue of the 7th instant he gives a sketch of the discussion which recently took place in Chvulotte between Mj. Caldwell and Gen. Dockery, from which we make the followingextract : "We now come to the most important part of C en. D.'s remarks. In lhe foregoing he had only been say ing that he was ignorant, and givii;g his audience most convincing proofs of such being really the case. In the pail we shall mw refer to fie exhibited the blackness of his Tory heart, the depravity of his trait or soul. General Dcckery put on ail the austerity he could command, drew all the frowns over his brow thai he could muster, and drawing or contracting his counten ance into all the furiousness he could mimic, in a thundering voice, but trembling wilh his mighty emo tion, he said in effect: "ll South Carolina should secede, he would vote the President ships of war, not only ships of war bin steam-ships, not only these but gun-boats. He would not stop here, he would go sull further, he would give him alt lhe militia of Hie country to subdue South Carolina and coerce her back into the Union." If the Black Mountain had been in the neighbor hood and suddenly belched forth in awful rumblings as a volcano, it could not have astounded the persons present more. If Arnold had arisen in their midst, he could scarcelv have exeiterl mnrp surnrise. certain ly not more disgust. If Judas had joined Arnold, the fico could not have excited more scorn, more de testation, more heart-felt, deep, unmitigated contempt. We have never in our life seen the utlerance of any foul-mouthed, villianous sentiment tall upon an au dience with so overwhelming a feeling against the speaker. We have not hoa.-d of a single person, Whig or Democrat, that heard Gen. Dockery, that has offered a word on his behalf. Not a person who has dared go so far in this community as to offer an apology for his rash and unsouthern attacks upon the Southern rights friends. On the other hand indignation is gen eral, and even execration is found upon the lips of those from whom Gen. Dockery may have hoped to rind some small degree of praise and apology." We learn from the Charlotte Journal that a Whig Meeting was held in Cabarrus on the 7th instant, Which was addressed by Mr. Dargan. Mr. Dargan withdrew his name from the canvass, and . urged his fruHkls to support Gen. Dockery ; and the Meeting fledged the support of the Whigs of Cabarrus to the mer individual. Mr. Dargan is, then, in favor of coercing and subjugating South Carolina, in case she secedes from the Union. This is a fine position, cer tainly, to be occupied by a friend of Southern rights and of a Constitutional Union,' He would like to ee Southern interests and Southern rio-hts protected and maintained, and the Union preeerved ; but Whig il" Tl T37 '.nJ alway8' f Vrusl be. and force and I . ,i rf ,a8tres".

' The' Editor of the Tiale'igh Register U in theWbit !of denouncing the, right of secession and State apyer eignty, with much more bitterness than hejdoes our Northern assailants ; we say he denounces it that is all. He offers no arguments against it, but contents himself, and labors to satisfy his readers, with vituper ation, abuse, and slang on this important subject. His course in this matter is one of the strongest evidences which cbuM be offered of the weakness of his cause. A man who feels that he is rightand who is willing to have his positions examined and commented on, with a view to the development of truth, is not very apt to go into a passion and call names. Such a man will court and rather defy inyestigation than avoid it; and if he should have anything to allege against his opponents, he will do it in a temperate and well considered manner, and will offer arguments in sup port of his charges. Such a man is no the Editor of the Register about this t'me ; and for a proof of what we say'we refer the reading public to the coJurans of his paper. We invite the particular attention of the Raleigh Register to the following excellent article, copied from the last Wilmington Commercial : " Thb Right of Secession. If the doctrine of the right of secession is the absurd and extravagant no tion that its opponents declare it to be, we are sur prised that such bitter feelings are sustained towards those who sustain it; for there can be nothing very dangerous in anything incor.stent and unreasonable, among an intelligent people. We do not expect any administration in power will acknowledge this right, because it checks the poten cy of the will of the Federal Government, and is ap parently calculated to weaken its influence. But this effect can be temporary only ; for the result of such doctrine must be to give salutary power to the Exec utive Organ of a people, united in heart and mind as well as cemented in Union by law. We hope our readers will examine this important subject, with the coolness and candor which its im portance demands. Let us consider that the free States have perseveringly encroached upon the rights of the South ; and the public mind must now be con vinced' that no fraternal regard for us will stay the progress of this evil. Other motives must be brought j into action, to operate successfully upon our oppo- nents. The free States, like all other States in the world, ! are covetous of political power. If slavery is confined within its present limits, for the present, the power , u,,s respect. It is lolly to suppose iney win not continue to oppress as well as insult us, w-ihoutsome check of suflicient power to cause them to pause in their mad and reckless career. We contend for the right of secession as the best means of Dreservini the Union, and the only means they will grind us into tne dust. Ana will not, must not lhe south resist this consequence, even unio blood 1 What bound to submit lo the power of the Government under the operations ol a violated Con stitution, and no provisional remedy whatever 1 They know but little of the character of a brave and sensi- I live people, who suppose it possible that a civil war can be avoiueu, ior leu years, unuer mis unjust anu tyrannical policy. But let Whig Massachusetts and Democratic New Hampshire know, that when they rob our slavehold ers and insult our people, they trespass on the rights of citizens of sovereign Slates Slates which have the right to secede and the power to maintain them selves"in thatoosition. and thev will " mind the mu- I sic and the steps " better man tney nave nereioiore i done. Their interest and sajely will prompt them lo act justly. They will not jeopard the interests of trade and the safety of Union, for the sake of a moral abstraction, or even for the expectation of political ascendancy. We thus see that if the right of seces sion is acknowledged, there will be no danger of a civil war. Nor will the right ol secession be ever exercised, in all probability, because there will be no necessity for it. The States, as sovereigns, bound together by a Constitutional Compact, by a commu nity of interests, and by political sympathy, will re spect each other the only basis upon which a true friendship can exist. There must be no reliance on compromises, but a trust in the Constitution ; and the institution of slave ry must be left lo the decision of each State, and the citizens forming a new State. But let the right of secession be denied ; let the system of aggression continue, and the rights of the south.be left to the contingency of Congressional action, and the sympa- i thy of our " northern brethren," and the Union is in rapid progress of dissolution the elements of de struction are but ripening into action."

The following Resolution was adopted by accla mation at the Southern Rights Meeting recently held in Scriven County, Georgia : " Resolved, That in the event South Carolina se cedes from the Union of the North, and that the gov ernment of the majority should try to intimidate her from her just right to do so, we the members com- posing mis meeting oo pieoge ourselves in me race of the world to support her 'cause if necessary wilh our rifles to the death.

Fugitive Slate Excitement in Chicago. The city, for the past twenty-four hours, has been the scene of considerable excitement, occasioned by the arrest of a colored man claimed as a slave, by an agent for the alleged master from the State of Mis souri. Yesterday afternoon, Deputy Marshal Barker, in the discharge of his official duty, arrested the man, named Moses Johnson, upon State street, and con veyed him to the United States Court Room, in the Saloon Building, but in consequence of the prisoner not being provided with counsel, Mr. Barker very properly postponed the examination until this morn ing at 10 o'clock. Meanwhile the rumor of the arrest took wing, and a large number of individuals, including many color ed persons, gathered about the entrance to the Sa loon, and much excitement prevailed, it being known that the Marshal had decided to retain the alleged fu gitive in the Saloon Building during the night, and that a suitable guard had been set otfpr hurt. That several of the friends of the prisoner were invited to j remain wuu hud, is a sumcieiu eviuence 01 ivir. oar- ker's disposition to do whatever miffht be desired in the case, consistent wit ) t ie discharge of his official duties.

The Court Room was crowded to excess, hundreds were unable to obtain admittance. Mr. Manierre, on behalf of the defendant, raised the question of the jurisdiction of the Court, and Mr. Peck was speaking when we left the Court Room. The finale cf the matter, we are unable to give, as the examination was not concluded when we went to press. Chicago Journal, 5J. The Launch.

The reply of President Fillmore to the invitation of the Boston Council, has been received, in which he expresses his regret that his public duties will render a visit at the present time impracticable.
