We here heretofore omitted to edrert to the brief
bat significant speeches of these two distinguished
Northern Democrats, on a recent occasion, in the
State of New York. We desire at the present time,
however, to call public attention to them, as the sen
timents and opinions of the gentlemen named are
important to a true understanding of the position of
tho Northern Democracy on the subject of slavery
in tho Territories.
When Senator Douglas made the speech to which
we hare reference, he was on a visit with bis bride
to his mother in Ontario county, New York, where
some of his personal friends and political admirers
gave him the compliment of a public supper and
hall, furnishing the opportunity to indulge in a few
remarks. We find a report of the speech of the Il
linois Senator in tho Ontario Repository. The main
portion of it waa devoted to explaining to his old
neighbors “ the true character of the Nebraska bill,"
which, as always, he claimed was based upon the
principles of self-government. After an elaborate
•xposition of his doctrine, he proceeded as follows:
“The objection to thU doctrine, u applied to our new
Territories, that tho people of such Territorier, if left to
themselves, might legislate into their country the crime
of slavery, as well as other crimes, be answered by show
ing, from the well-known bi>tory of the United Slates,
that in tha exercise of this right of self-government, in
stead of so doing, tlx of the original thirteen colonies,
which commenced by being elavelioldiug colonies, had ac
tually emancipated their slaves without the least coercion
from the Qovernment of the United States ; and Ike tome
result would follow, at Ac tkougkt, in other tlarekoldeng
Motet, if the citizens of the Hon •slareholding Stales would
only give them the privilege of tool ing their own laws in
their own way ; and the Territories, in particular, where
slavery hat wot yet been introduced, were in no tiANUxaor
If anything could surprise us in these days of mo
dem Democracy and consequent political heresy and
profligacy, it would be the falling of sentiments like
these from the lips of an able and distinguished lea
der of the dominant party of the Union—a North
ern politician of the national Democratic school,
who is constantly held up to us by lus party com
panions and allies at tho South, as a Northern man
of unexceptionable Southern principles. We freely
admit ourselves that Senator Douglas is among the
soundest, most reliable and deserving of the North
ern Democracy. But if the soundest and most reli
able of the Northern Democrats announce sentiments
like those we have quoted, what must be the charac
ter of the opinions in respect to slavery entertained
by the vast majority of the men at the North with
whom he is politically associated ?
We here find Judge Douglas—this peculiar friend
and defender of tho rights of the South—boldly de
nouncing and anathematizing slavery as a “crime,”
and declaring that it is “against the general con
cience and prejudices of the people of the country,
North and South.” Admit the truth ol the Senator's
assertion in respect to our cherished domestic insti
tution, and what woulj be the consequence? Why,
Southern men would be I ore ver estopped from sayiug
a word in defence or justification of slavery. Indeed,
tbey would be compelled to co-operate in any move
ment or effort having for its object its overthrow and
utter abolition. Being a “crime,” it could not be
upheld or recognized either in the States or in the
Territories, without a gross and shameless violation
of all law, human and divine. And such is the view
of slavery which Judge Douglas would promulgate
as a “fixed fact" among his political followers, and
impress upon the public mind, not ooly of the North,
but of the whole Union and all the world beside.—
Verily, if we believed, as Senator Douglas says Le
does, that slavery is a “crime,” a Sense of duty, pub
lic and private, would impel us to encourage and as
sist in all propositions and efforts which might be
sugge ited for its complete and speedy annihilation.
We should undertake no longer to defend, palliate or
excuse what we considered a “crime," anil “against
the general conscience" of our own and all civilized
countries. And if Judge Douglas has any respect
for consistency, to say nothing of moral and political
obligation, be will renounce all specious talk and ar
gument on the subject, and unite at once and cor
dially with Harrison, Philips and Fred. Douglass in
the effort to (title and abolish slavery whcievor it
exists throughout God's heritage.
And so, too, according to the opinion and wishes of
tho Democratic Senator from Illinois, the institutions
of the South will never find a foot-hold or receive re
cognition in any of the Territories of the Union. Be
ing "against the general conscience ol the people of
the country, North and South," as Judge Douglas
assorts, of course those Southern men who believe
slavery to be no “crime" must surrender all idea of
its further extension, and content themselves with
having it “cribbed, cabinned and confined" within
its present limits. Even should the people of Kan
sas or any other of our Territories see fit to adopt a
i'lMaSlnSm. _I i_i- ., . ...
tion of slavery, and then apply to Congress for ad
mission into the Union, Senator Douglas and those
who think with hitn would be compelled—il sincere
and honest in their view of the sutyect— to reject
their application, upon the all-sufficient ground oi
discountenancing and opposing what they believe to
be a wrong and a “crime," and “against the general
conscience" of the country and of the world. There
can, therefore, be no more slave States added to the
Union. The united South of itself is not strong
enough to secure the admission of Kansas or any
other Territory into the Union with a pro slavery
Constitution; and the “allies" of the Southern De
mocracy at the North will lend her no aid in the
matter, because in Jtheir consciences they believe
slavery to be a “crinio" and a curse I Such is the
entertainment to which the anxious and expectant
South is invited by the most prominent ami mtlucn
tia! leader of the Northern Democracy. Such is the
vein, yet titling, conclusion of that monstrous sys
tem of humbtiggery and deception, which the De
mocratic party have practiced upon the honest cre
dulity of the Southern people for so long a setioa of
years Forever promising additional strength and
security to slavery, and yet sustaining aud putting
men in power who avow their purpose to oppose its
extension and hem it in forever, because, as they
say, it is a “crime" and “against the general con
science" of the people I We invoke the attention of
Southern men to the views and intentions of the
Northern Democracy in regard to .Southern rights,
as foreshadowed in the significant extract from the
speech of senator Douglas. If hta opinion of slavery
is the prevalent one of Ids parly at the North, then
indeed has the South been deceived ami cajoled to
its ruin by those Northern political syrens.
On the same occasion upon which Judge Douglas
delivered the speech upon which w« have comment
ed, General Shield, another distinguished leader ol
the Northern Democracy was called out, and re
aponded hy saying that ’he was opy/cW to thr ti

It ia not without regret and laortificwtion that we
Kara noticod the peUUoo to Congress of the enters
priaing propriety of thaCWlina Line of Steamer*,
■ettfng forth that it will be impossible, at the re
‘Incad compensation allowed for the mail service, to
continue the line any longer, and requesting Con
graaa to take hia ■ teamen* off bis hands. This ia a
■naMar which seriously affects the pride and feme of
the whole country, and should receive at the bands
of Congress that carelul and deliberate consideration
to which it is entitled. For one, wo think it incum
bent upon Ooogrea to awnrd to the Collins Line
•uch compensation for mail service, as will serve to
keep it up, without loss to the ownor. The paltry
consideration of a few thousand dollars should not
be permitted to work the ruin of what lias so deeply
excited the national pride, and contributed so largely
to the national glory. l.ct Congress, therefore, de
termine to sustain the Collius Line of Steamers, if
it can possibly be done within the bounds of reason
and propriety. We subjoin, because we cordially
endorse its sentiments, the following article on the
subject trom the New York Mirror:
“Wherever the uaae and fame of lha United Slates
hare penetrated—from Indus to the Hole—the Collina line
of mail steamers ia kuoen as the roost splendid exponent
of American Ingenuity end emerpriae. It ia the Niagara
of American skill. Bunding recently on the deck ol the
magnificent Adiutic, our eyea taking in at a glance the
beauty and magnitude of her fair proportions, we fell a
thrill of hearty national pride and patriotism exulting in
•uch a tangible and glorious t xliibition of the nation's
strength. We have no fears hut that the Adriatic, when
the hour of trial comes, will rxeell all the great achiere
ineuU of the ocean, and add largely to the respect and ad
miration for American enterprise which the Collina line has
done ao much to engraft upon skeptical Europe.
“It is therefore an bumbling confession for an American
to make that this great enterprise, which has contributed
so largely to foster an honest national pride and to en
hance the fame of American prowess abroad, has not re
ceived from the government the support which it had a
right to expect, .ud thxt It* or jeetor has given notice that
it will be impossible, at the reduced compensation allowed
lor the mail service, to continue the line without Urnisb
ing the great victories it has won. Ur. Collins has been
compelled to request Congress to Uke his steamers off hia
hands, and it is not improbable that the whole couccrn will
be closed up befoiv the 4 th ol March.
“With the withdrawal of the Collins line we must give
up our supremacy on the ocean, and courses that the long
struggle between British and American ocean steamer
skill fiat resulted In the victory of the former. For the
purpose of competing with the Cunarders, several of which
have been built for t'ie express purpose of beating the
American steamers, Mr. Collina has actually expended
more than the additional pay allowed by him at tba last
seasion. He has reduced the time required in crossing
llie ocean one fourth—the average 10 days being brought
down to 11J—has compelled the Cunard line hi shorten
their time in the same ratio, has saved thouaauda of dollars
to the country in the shape ol interest, and has diverted
into our treasury Urge amounts for postages, hitherto ab
sorbed by the rival lines.

have rewarded with a statue or a civic triumph—Mr. Col
lin* may not improbably have occasion Tor aelf-congralula
liou if he can save hie -icanicr* from the hammer. Tlda
is the gratitude ol an enlightened Republic iu the Nine
teenth Century? Or lather, it is tbe kuaviah imbecility ol
Congress, which will squander hundreds of thousands at
the beck of parties organized for purposes of gigantic
spoliation—which lays millions of acres of public Linds at
the feel of Railroad monopolies—which rivals the public
prostitute in selling favors to the highest bidder—but
which stand* ready to rut the throat of the only line of
American steamer* capable of competing with Europe, and
so plays into the bauds of England, whose policy it is to
run our ships off tbe ocean.
Christmas and New Year.
As Christmas and New Year arc nearly upon us, we
hope to be pardoned lor offering a few timely suggestions
and hints to our wide and constantly increasing circle of
readers. We made an appeal a year ago to the subscri
bers and friends ol the ll’Aiy, which was responded to
with alacrity, and in tbe most liberal and generous spirit.
We deairu to reuew that appeal at the present lime, and
to request our readers to act upou it with promptness and
a hearty good-will.
Chriitmaa a: d New Year gifts are the ouly oues which
editors and proprietors of newspapers ever ask for ; and
these they wish to obtain only in the shape of new subscri
bers to their respective journal*. And such new sub
scriptions can hardly bs considered as gifts, toi the rea
son that the donors themselves receive ample compensa
tion for tbeir favors in the information and gratification
they derive from tbe July pAruaal of a paper filled with
varied, interesting and valuable matter. Nevertheless,
for the sake of peace in the family, we are willing to re
gard every new subscription to tho ICAiy, from now to
the middle of January, as a apecial Christmas or New
Year gift to ourselres, which we promise to be duly thank
ful lor, and which also will serve to inspire ua with new and
more zealous endeavors to entertain and gratify our rea
ders to the utmost eitent of our power. The present aea
son of the year, ton, is particularly appropriate for Dew
subscribers to enrol their names upon eur books. It is a
•eaaou of enjoyment and gayety, and surely no man, with
brain* in his head or * heart in his bosom, can either be
joyous or gay, to siy nothing of being clever, well-in
formed and entertaining, who denies himself the pleasure
of reading hi* own newspaper, paid tor with hia own mo
It is a circumstance bordering almost on the marvellous
aod certainly in ths highest degree discreditable, that there
should be one or two hundred thousand voters in the
Steto, and yet fully two thirds of them, if not more,
living from year’s end to year’s end without ever seeing a
newspaper, unless they be so fortunate as to fall in with a
stray number belonging to sonic body else. Not lea* (ban
one hundred and fifty thousand qualified voters of the State
—grown up men, over twenty-one year* of age, with beards
upon their face*, and perhaps with a family ol children sur.

themselves off Irom source* of information And enjoyment,
tbe loss of wheb can be compensated for in no other ilirec.
tioo whatever. Not even books—the best hooka of the
best authors—ran possibly supply the place of a newspa
per. Rooks are moie of the nature of a luxury, while a
newspaper i* a living daily necessity—as much so a* meat,
or drink, or the vital air. A newspaper ia a history of
daily contemporaneous life, public and social—a record of
facts, event*, and circumstances daily and hourly transpi
riug aud al.ke interesting to *11—“ a map of busy life, its
fluctuations aod it* vast concerns”—wbilo books lor tbe
most part tell u* only stale of the past, not a* important bv
half to our every day well being, enjoyment, and progress
*» the carious, important, or entertaining things which
the newspaper daily dispenses with such a habit of pleas
antness and with such clock-like regularity.
Apart, however, from the actual pleasure derived from
the habitual pernsal of a good newspaper, it is the solemn
social and political duty of every head of a family and of
•very voter ill the land to subscribe to tome public jour
nal or other. No man does justice to himself or bis chil
dren, unloss he is the recipient of a well-conducted news
paper. Nor can any on* of the vast number of freemen
in the State, who now take no paper, voto understanding
ly in any election or upon any question, without taking a
newspaper. It is not with subject* that engsgsd the
thoughts and consideration ol past generations that we of
the present have to deal; but It h with present questions,
la’-ely arisen and now arising, which we are called upon
to investigate and deride—and these questions all hear a
close and intimate relationship both to our individual in
terests and to the national welfare. As men and a* citl
sena, therefore, it i* our July to Inform ourselves in re
spect to them, and this can onlv lie done successfully by
reading carefully the newspaper, where subjects of every
line and variety are dsiiy considered and discutaed, and
where useful hints and suggestions enough may be picked
np in tho course of s week to eicito the reflections and
interest of the reader for a whole year.
But it was not our purpose to set forth all th* edvan
tage* of the gewspaper, or to d- liver a eulogy upon it*
value—and so we forbear. We conclude, however,
a* w« began, by modestly requesting each of our present
subscriber* to forward us a Christinas or New Year'* gift,
In the shape of an additional new eubarriber; and then no

WesuisuTOa, Dec. 20, 18M.
Kach Hours of Congress, after making a feeble effort at
a diversion into the ordinary channel of legislative buai
°***» ha* again relapsed into political disputation. Day
by day, some doughty champion of tho North, or of lbs
South, undertakes to enlighten the country ou the politi
cal issues of tlie times; and parados, with ostentatious zeal,
all the cast off and worn-out trumpery of the late canvazz.
The peoplezre getting tired of this sort of thing. This
everlasting slavery agitation serves only to strengthen
Northern fanaticism, and induce a feeling of still greater
exasperation at the South. What practical good is to
be effected by it, it seems difficult to determine.
It cannot be denied that tho Democracy of the South
hava made concessions in regard to tho doctrine ol squat
ter sovereignty. Time was uhen they averred, with un'
mistakrable emphasis, that it was something to which
they would never submit. Now, they are willing to leave
the question to the decision of the Supreme Court. When
they sis teld that the Kansas Nebraska Bill ia interpre
ted io the North as recognizing the dogma of squatter
sovereignty, tbey protest that, for themselves, they are ol
a different opinion. Yet, they my, if the Supreme Court
so decide, they are williug to be bound by that decision,
and aubmil to it Thus, if tha Supreme Court shall decide
that squatter sovereignty is contained in the Nebraska
bi’l— the principles of that bill having been accepted as
the Democratic creed ia reepcct to Territorial organiza
tions, the Democracy til the South stand pledged to up
hold it. This is, beyond doubt, a retreat trom the high
ground which the Southern Democracy formerly main
tained on this question.
On Thursday,Gov. Jones, of Tennesseu, made a* elabo
rate speech in the Senate, sustaining the President's
message, and making a vigorous assault upon Black Re
publicanism. Gov. Jones is a man of ability, and an ora
tor— but his speech, in point of strength of arguinrnt.
bore no comparison to that which Pugh, of Ohio, delivered
a few days previously. e
..V-■ or anwanwif.
Wilson is a type of the meunust clou of anti-slavery
fanatics—without ability, without fairness, and without
any of that Senatorial dignity which, under all circum
stances, characterises Seward or Foote. After tbe per
sonal disgrace put upon him in the Senate Chamber, by
Crittenden, near tbe close of tbe last session, it was sup.
po»ed tbit Wilson would exhibit some show of decency
and modesty in the Senate. But be appears to be, in no
respect, changed, lie is tbe tame low, dirty, offensive
demagogue that be always was.
Mr. Weller ol California notified tbe Senate, a few days
ago, that as soon as tbe holydays were over, he should
call up his bill of the last session, providing for tbe con
struction of a railroad to the Pacific. Mr. Weller has ex
hibited extraordinary xeal in the advocacy ol this measure
—and there is no doubt of there being a majority in both
branches of Congress in its favor. There is very little
pro-pect, however, of the passage of the bill, owing to the
rivalry existing among (he advocates of different routes.
Tbe North Western States, with their usual avidity in
monopolising the pal.onage of the General Government,
insist that tho road shall be built through Iowa. The Wes
tern States claim Memphis a* the proper Eastern terminus,
and the Sooth Western States are in favor of the El Pa,o
■ oute, along the line of the U'id parallel. Between thrse
conflicting interests, the bill will probably be lost. Even
should it pass, it is probable it would be arrested by the
Executive veto. It is but just to Gen. Pierce to say, that
so far as internal improvements oy the Geuural Govern
ment are concerned, he baa adhered to tbe doctrines of
the Democratic pisiform with undeviating consistency.
His vetoes have been overruled by bis own party friends.
The probability of a disruption of the Democratic party,
before tbe teiminatiou of Mr. Buchanan's administration,
iurreasos with the developments ol each successive day.
In fact, unless the Southern Democracy quietly yield all
tbe concessions which their Northern and Northwestern
allies demand of them, I do not see how it is to be avoided
They must yield their opposition to the construction of a
Pacific Railroad by tbe General Government. They must
yield tlieir opposition to the squandering of the pnblic
lands upon railroad companies in tha Western and North
western States, and the public money upon improvements
of the Northwestern rivers and harbors. They must sub
scribe the odions doctrine of squatter sovereignty. They
must consent to tbe admitsioii of Kansas as s Freo State.
These arc the conditions upon which peace is to be main
tained in tho great Democratic family. Will they be ac
cepted by the Southern Democracy * I think not. Thev
cannot do it without a surrender of principles which they
have always protested were of vital importance.
Tho attempt of John W. Fomoy to securo an election lo
the Senate from Pennsylvania was generally believed here
when it wu first mentioned, to be a boax. Subsequent
inhumation confirms the truth of it, and there aro many
persons here who predict confidently that Foiuey will be
successful. It is a remarkable fart that Forney has never
yet failed in any ol bis undertakings. His whole life baa
lieen a series of continued successes. Even when the
•Senate elected Nicholson alone as its printer—leasing For
ney out on account of the bad odor of his name and char
acter—it was satisfactorily ascertained afterwards that
Forney had a private understanding that on* balfthe prof

favorite candidate of Did Buck, aa would appear prcbabls
from the open advocacy of Ills claims by Mr. Buchanan's
home organ ?

attempt to get an additional appropriation from the Trea
sury. lie pretend* that he loee* money by carrying the

were aa high In Petersburg as la Blckwaod. wd o oom*
durable quantity from Lynchburg found Its way to City
Point Thin circumstance, which rare It occurs, alarmed
the Board lato a redectiou on wheat and lour, which haa
rinc* bran advanced.
The decreased revenue lo *M may with propriety be ael
down to the account of decrease la the through tonnage,
for by refers nee to matimaut page SI?, we fiud from the
receipu lor A.ague! and September, when this tonnage is
generally going through, that the deficit — compared with
1SS4, is over $16,000. The President does not enlighten
us In any of hie reports aa to the deciruse in through loo
aage paying the highest rate of tolls; but by a calculation
of the decrease and increase of all the articles mentioned,
sad coaapnring these wilh tha total decrense in tonnage,
(which is the only way we can estimate it,) we have a de
crease ol over 12,000 tons, and but for the large iucrease
ol local tonnage, the deficit moat have been much greater.
The President however, proves by flgnree that the re
ceipu lor the leal six months up to 1st of October, 1666,
were grester by over $-16,000 than the aix months prece
ding. This 1 am pleased to see, and if it coaid not be ac
counted for in any other way than a steady increase In tha
business of tha canal, I should be still more pleased. Bat
to the tacts.
The last six month* commence the 1st of April,

THU, wilh the advance on toll# on wheat in September,
yielding $:i,000 over September of last year, make up
the sum total. With a large crop of tobacco, and the
Virginia St Tennessee Railroad bringing to Lynchburg in
creased quantities of wheat, no doubt there' has been a
considerable increase in each articles ; bat how is it with
the through merchandise? YVo find, by a similar calcu
lation, that it has sti'l farther decreased some 8,000 tons.
Thus, within the past two Teats, we may aafvlv set
down the iituinulioo at 20,000 tons; sad, while the com
pany are congratulating themselves with the advantages
uf the Virginia A Tennessee Railroad, they are permitting
the cream of that trade to pans through other chanuele,
when it will not cost them an additional cent to Carry it.
I will eudeavor at some future time to show that this is
not only cutting off the revenue from up toll, but is ren
dering them unable lo compete with the South-Side Rail
road in carrying down freight; and will also give some
suggestions as to the manner of regaining this trade and
aiding the permanent iucrease of the revenue.

Dx.tR Sir: Your favor, inquiring whether I would be
a candidate for re-election to Congress i* received. I siu
in the daily receipt of letters making similar inquiries and
therefore avail myself of this public way to answer them
all. I have never, at my own instance, announced my
self a candidate for any office. I believe the people should
confer offices upon such person*, as in their judgment.
dictation, or caucus nomination. Tho people of oar
district entertain, so Iar as I aru able to lorm an opiuiou,
tho same great eonsiitmional principles, which have ever
guided my action, and upon which depends, in niy opiuiou,
the permanency ol our institutions; but there is at this
time, a seeming difference of opinion between the majori
ty and myself, as to the means to be employed in the ad
ministration of tbe government, to advance our interests
and maintain our institutions.
1 believe in my heart that the continued agitation of
the question ol slavery, is fast loosening the bonds tbit
bind us together as one people, and must ultimately end
in the destruction of the best interests of our section ol the
Union, if not iu the destruction of the Union itself. Thu
party with which I formerly arled, and whose original
principles I still and ever shall maintain, has allowed itself
to be diverted from the iiuinta nance ol thu principles of
democracy, as inaugurated by Jefferson, and successfully
enforced by Jeck*ou, and has accepted the sectional issue
which the fanaticism of tho non slaveliolding States has
Irom an early period iu our history sought to bring about,
but in which effort they never could have been successful,
bad it not been lor the conduct of tbe present admiiiDtra
tion and its friends, in the last ami the present Congress
In proof of this, we hsve seen men ol all parlies who
are as far apart as the Northern and Southern poles, upon
great constitutional questions, welcomed without the re
cantation of a single political opinion, into the ranks of
the Democratic party, upon (ho solo condition ol giving
their support to the nominees of the Cincinnati Conven
tion, thus exhibiting to the world a par tv organization,
having nothing in common but the name—adopting u
platform upon which tho tillibuetera, tiro caters, federal
ists, lieu suiters, and co operation disunionists alike could
stand—each putting his own construction upon It—re-en
acting the platform of 1852 which proclaims eternal ho*
tilitv to a system ol internal improvement* by tho Gene
ral Government, but taking care before they adjourned, to
adopt a resolution favorable to a Pacific Railroad.
Virginia anti-internal improvement Democrats voting for
u Presidential nominee, who but three years ago made a
speech in Philadelphia, expressing the sentiment* contain
ed in the letter, which he, in .September last, quietly dis
patched to California, assuring that people tint he wa* in
favor of expending the treasury of the nation in the con
struction of a rsilroad to their borders—co-operating with
amt having for their leaders (lie men who hsve voted
awsy millions for the construction of woiks of iutemsl
improvements in the West sod Northwest, snd at the
same lime refusing to receive lor Virginia, who gave away
an empire, a few millions ol teres of land, to aid her in
her present struggle to complete her public works uow fast
going to decay.
Iu view ol these /acts and the further fart, that such a
policy was daily weakening the South and strengthening
tlie Noitb, and the still further fact that this same self sty
led Democratic party, was as much tbe creature of slavery
agitation as the Black Republican party of the North, I
could not, in tho conscientious discharge ot my duty to my
country, vote for Die Cincinnati nominees. In this I dif
fered with a majority of those I have the honor to repre
sent. Looking to that vote, and to that vote a/unr, I have
determined not to be a candidate for re-election.
I am prepared to give Mr. Buchanan a fair and honest
support, should he, in his administration, keep in view the
old Democratic land marks, and to act by him, as I did to
ward* President Pierce, whose vetoes I sustained when he
was deserted by many who are recognized us orthodox ex
ponents of Democracy.
1 have endeavored faithfully, and to the best of my abil
Ity, to discharge my representative duties I am willing
my Congressional record shall undergo the aevvrest Dem
ocratic scrutiny. I have given no voto which, upon re
flection, I would change if I could, and ran say tl at,
while the district may get a representative posses-ing more
wisdom ami greater experience, they will never get ono
who will serve them with more industry and zeal.
I shall reUre to private life, strengthened in the correct

From Tha X. Y. SrprtM.
Wl>en Burlingame (truck upon the idee of “an anti
alavary Bible/* and “anti-slavery Ood,” he but pithily em
bodied the idea of two churches. Northern and Sot'tliern,
(the two Biblca,—the two Oods) which the Abolition In
fluence* In the Church have carried out to an alarming
eitent. Burlingame's realiaition, however, is yet far be
hind what the real Alarmists now desire, and are attempt
ing,—and that ie, the creation of a Literature, which shall
cut tba North Irotn tha South. The Independent, for two
or three year* ha* haen publicly struggling to convert th*
great National Tract Hoeialy into an Abolition Tract Soci
ety, ami in the end, will probably dragoon ila reluctant
manager* into obedience, aa it baa dragooned many into
the ranks of Abolitionism, by changing an old into a new
nam* ol Republicanism. But while the Independent baa
been thn* publicly at work, under cover, all the Abolition
energies of the North have been gathered In noma of the
the Public Houses for tba circulatiou of au Abolition Up
erature in the Soothem State*.
The Publishing Houses ol tills Country—of this Conti
nent—wit may aay, aro in this City, Philadelphia and Bos
ton ; lor here w* now really do the work lor (boot all ol
.Spanish America, and for the Canadas North, and the
British Province* East. Many of the** publishers, —and
more especially tri Boston,—have been banding all their
energies upon Atrolltlon Literature, and this Literature
| lias been ciieolated far and wide iu the Southern States,
through Southern Book Stores; and, it may be, lisa been
in part, tlm mea « of escillng the recent slave in-urrec
tiooe there. Not only enormous effort* have been used to
give therm work* circulation South aa well a* North, bat
■ hi* class ol Publisher* hava pitched upon the New York
Tribune, *• tha honk organ of their advertiernients, not
alone to carry the advertlaeroaiits of their Books, but to
make it necoatary for Southern f link sellers, to hsve the
Tribune in their Hook Shops, and thus to circulate the
r Ahoflrhnitsta of that Journal in all the reading rendezvous
of th* ahofa Southern Country.
Now, Book Publishers, in a Irae land, of frv? discussion
have a right to do all lid* sort of thing, •* know,—and
thus, in a R. public ol a| St ties to m*k* war upon I ft of
them,—trwt it i* a right that etiat* in no other country
tinder earth, —and that could not eil*t liar* a day, If the
f'oion were broken up. The Right, however, we speak
of, i« a legal right,—but only a legal right,—and when
viewed '>y the light* ol papiotism, inP-r-Stale good neigh

ly reason, looking to the history of the world, that a Lite
ratuta, in the and, reign* over a people,—and to tba go
rammcol of a hostile Literature, tba South l* no more
likely to submit, thau to a hostile political government.
Nevertheless, tba Northern Abolition tooling to doing all il
can, in ail ways, to crests that Literature,—and Book
Publisher* are aiding them with their capital aud mean*.
This Abolition hostility, the other day, etproeaed I tea If in
a New York Abolition Journal, in a hostile criticism upon
a uorel recently written by Mr*. Wm.O. Rives, ot Va.,—a
lady, whose ltla North, aa well aa South, in Europe as wall aa
in America, baa given her opportunities for observation f»r
beyond wbat are usual with her sex, and who, therefore,
wa* eutittod at least to respectable criticism. ▲ most elo
quent and popular uovcitet ol tbo South—Mr. 8yturns, of
South Carolina—was recently aAuinfout of Now York city
by the *a mo Abolition peraousand Abolition Ice lings; a man
who haa Jou* honor to our literature and to our Country,
and *ho has had no more to do with politics, or slavery,
thau Washington living, while Thackeray and Dickens—
Englishmen, in education and feeling hostile to both the
Northern and Southern State*—are fritA by those same
Abolitionists, to an client aiekeniug oren to tbu /Wed.—
These Abolitionists, indeed, do uot treat a countryman as
well as they trout a foreigner.
The British Journals and Reviews, aware of the point*
of our country desinsd weak in Europe, hare recently sent
over bore, aud put under pay, the Northern Literati whom
the A boh.ion Book Publishers of the Nerth have started |
and fostered into life. The Edinburgh Review, it seems, ,
has recently found a South Caroliua born American, Hr. ,
iug in New Yotk, who is ready to sell hi* pen, not only ,
iu abuse of his wliol* country, but of the particular acc- |
tion from whence ha came. B* indites untruth* to trarel
th* world over, through tlialgroat organ ol Public Instruc- ,
tion ; to damage hi* couulry aud Republican institutions.
The tendon Times, see, lias stipendiaries here, to do
iu British Abolition work ; that is, to reduce lif.ecn
Sialoa of our Republic—one hall—to the miserable con
dition to which British folly and Isnaticism hare reduced ,
Jamaica and other British West India colunier. These 1
unnatural writers, il Amcrieane, thus do a double trade,
here,—one for the homo market, and for the Abolitiou
Book Publishers, aud tho other, for the British market,
its Edinburgh Reriews, Ac., Ac.
We do not know that there to any remedy,—but now
that the Republic has nearly the two Bibles and the two
>>.xi* 01 Burlingame, witn tnc soutu uarotiii* aud Btui
chusclt* madmen thrown in, and has come very near hav
ing two countriim from purely aectionally organized parties,
it need* but a Southern Literature, and a Northern Lite*
rature,—a* wedges driven in,—to coin pie to the isolation
and eepaialion. It is but justice, however, to sav,—such
great Publishing House* as tha Harpers in the North, with
almost all in Philadelphia, and a few iu Boston, have nev
er given in to this m-liiwn/iiiay of our Literature,—never
directed their capital to that purpose,—never, especially,
patronized that nperiea of Literature. Other* than Ilia
Harpers here in New York, we might name with like cred
it,—hut wo name them a* the great house ol the Kapub
lic,—successful lor thirty years, by remembering the whole
Republic, and proffering intellectual aliment for ail that
Republic. Such bouses deserve monument* of gold fur
tha gtxxl they do to Idle rature,—National Literature,—
Republican Literature,—and in this connection, they
should aver be mentioned with praise.
Tho British Publishers, ol late, seeing the success ol
onr Northern Abolition Publishers, have hit upon some
method al the Cuatoiu House not quite comprehensible to
us, bv which they bring in their Abolition sheets here,
with little or no duty, to the great damage of our Print
ers, Paper Rakers, Book Binders, Ac ,—immense cla&sex
of our own Nortliem society. Heicaln-r we may touch
upon this mischief, in connection with kindred subjects.
