lives of the . oinit'rv must arrest the guilty I
narrooay 0 of
Washington, JefTeraon, Adams and Itancoik
and the institutions they helped to rear. still
1,,.,.,-r among us. does it not become patri
ot" men to seek by all honorable and direct
lean" to rescue ibecommon country Irons its
present dangers ! Throw oft the shackles of
liartv and invoke tha better sense ot all par
! lies and sections In favor of Union,
under the motto of "The Country aad nothing
but tbe Country." Fling abroad Ihe national
banner and turn from oar midst the waters
ot bitterness Turnusidetbefaauticismof the
North, and bid the Hotspurs of the South be
still. [Applause.]
This Convention, he continued, was assem
bled to do no ordinary wcrh. The ship of
State was being driven upon an unquiet and
tempestuous ocean ; and at such an hour when
so much-was at stake—when tbe heart ol tbe
patriot almost sinks within hint- tho respon
■ii.iliiv that devolved upon Hie conservatives
was of th-' w.ighti.-st character. They could
no, -lurk it if they would, .md would iioi il
itiey could The saieiy and altimateaeoarity
of the country depended upon them. It was I
no ume to wrangle over minor matters. There I
should lie ton one Hag, and Hint Inscribed
•Ihe Country, the Constitution and Hie I
Union." [Cheers.] i
The Chairman next alluded to the John
Drown a flair, m terms of withering condem
nation; also to the author of the Helper Book.
Justice had been visited upon John Brown,
and he ti.ped it was only suspended a* to the
other. (Applause.] Tbe scorn and contempt
of all go.xt men should be visited upon the
persons who recommended the Helper Hook,
lint ii was not to tie denied that al both ex
tremes of tbe Union there were tiiii|,iiet
spirits, who, regardless of consequences,
rushed in "where angels bared to tread."
While professing attachment for the Union,
their conduct manifested that they were dis
union is ts. The Speaker alluded to the va
rieus proposition, brought forth by the politi
cal parties of the day. He denounced the
fire.eaters of Doth sections: condemned the
Black Republicans, who. under the guise of
devotion to the Union, were seeking to scatter
every element of Union to the winds.—
And" a* if to add fuel to thellame, South Car
olina, which has always been prolific of revo
lutionary si hemes, sends a Commissioner to
invite the mother of States and of statesmen
to a sectional conference. He hoped Virginia
would not touch that thing. Let hel do some
thing more rational. Let us unite and battle
aguiuet these schemes, all of which, unless
arrested, must lead to the same frightful and
caiamitcus result. Let us demand protection
t-.r our properiv of every species; demand
Bvory Immunity which ihe Constitution guar
antees, aud protect ourselves in the Union, iv
preference to certain ruin ~«, of it. Let us
demand that the Confederacy as our fathers
made it, Shall be preserved, aad that the flag
.hall wave, aa of old, over a stable, free, and
constitutional Ualou. [Cheers.]
He counselled liiinness, but not rashness;
decision, not empty resolves; and. if the Con
vention pleased, nn expression in favor ol
placing Hie Slate in a condition to meet any
emergency. Then, if Hie time should come—
which might Heaven avert—when we could ao
I longer submit without dishonor, then tne
j mode ol resistance that belongs to every peo
ple would belong to us. When the disruption
shall come, and the people in a moment of
madness pulldown Ihe only Temple of Lib
,-riy the world has ever known, the hopes ot
the wis.- and good will have Bed forever.—
While we are ready to guard the honor of Vir
ginia, fet as aid lo build up a grand National
Conservative Union party, which shall roll
back the waves of fanaticism and restore hope
to the patriot's bosom. i
The Chairman here made a handsome allu
sion to tin, day and Hie occasion, and eulo
gised the memory of Washington. Ha hoped
Mo-ship ot State would ride on, ami that the
blessings of civil and religious liberty might
!„• conferred upon tlie present generation and
upon posterity.
I He sat down amid loud applause.
Mr. 11. W. Thomas offered the following res
olution, which was adopted : I
i Resolved, That a eoaunittee of fifteen, one from
each electoral district, be appointed to recommend
si,liable and jieiinanent oiiioers Un this Cony. v

as follows "Whilst 1 have no particular ob

of the country, to go forth to battle for "be
C institution. [Applause.] The Cbairinnu has
I most eloquently told you of the tearful
I dangers that beset this glorious Union.
Whence come these dangers I No man
more cordially detests the fanatical pro
ceedings of the traitor. Black Republican,
I than I do; but he ia not alone to blame for ihe
I present troubles thai beset us. The Democratic
party not ihe masses, but the leaders and
spoilsmen are one of the twin-brothers iv
this mischief. (Applause.) Yes, ihe Demo
crats have kept alive the mischief, by denounc
ing cdl other, ihau their party as A boll lion -
i»ts -us traitors to the South. | Applause J I
will not waste your time by detailing how ihe
Henna-rat* have kept alive this mischief; it
would take too long to do so ; but by their act*
the Black Republican party has beeu built up
and strengthened. And bow? By inak- j
nig slavery tbe only test for the Pre- |
sideiuy I Since Whig candidate has
been' denounced a. an Abolitionist. Clay,
Taylor, Harrison, Scott—all native Virginians
—have been denounced as unsound on the
silvery question. |A % nice--"and Fiournoy,

were mi*taken, ao tar aa my opinions are con
cerned, bat Virginians so distinguished aa
Clay, uad Harrison, and Taylor, aad Scott,
could not have been unknown to them.—
All four of those dUtiuguUhed men were
beld up iv Virginia, their native State, as tin-
BOUadou the slavery question, and not to be
trusted. [Applause] Thua all olher qnes
tious were sunk in tbeone question of slavery
- and the only question, put to candidates for
places were— "are yon found on the slavery
.I notion '." "I am." "Are you a Democrat !"
•■Thank God, I am not," and at once you are
said to be euaonod. [Oreat applause] 1 di»
--«to reler to the present Executive of Vir
. [applause,] but bad. Win. 1,. <toggin,hls
nent, been an endorser of the liuffner
pamphlet, I would have fled from hira. As a
Whig, that set would have stamped bis un
soundness. In the present Executive, ihe
tjrloak of Democracy was amply sufficient to
screen him from the siigb teat" imputation.—
[Applause] Mr. F. then argued to show lhat
the Northern people, ti tilling that the only is
sue iv tin* South win slavery— that all indus
trial pursuits were set aside, and that the
Issue, was entirely sectional, began to affiliate
with |he Abolitionists and strengthen their
hands. Notcontent with r!eclarir<i;:tgainst Vir
ginian*, this party, lor Presidential purposes,
laid violent hand* on the Missouri Compro
mise, re-opened a question which had been
finally *.>tt!e.l, anil than drove into the
Black Republican ranks thousands of cou
servatlve Northern men. [Applause]—
No man can ton the anil delest the principles of
the lilack Republican parly mote than I do:
hut are not the Democrats responsible for their
strength I [Applause.) Can peace ho restored I
to our distracterl conn try by -riving the control
oi government into the bands of either of these
parties I Ami her.- let me warn yon not to be
again deceived, as m ts&u, by tbe appeals of the
Deanocrats to desert your own patriotic stan
dard bearer, Fillmore, aid them to elect Bu
chanan, ami thua defeat Fremont, and forever
breakdown the Black Republican organisation
and save the Unkm. [Applaaoe.] Thoasaada
of good unit true Whigs were deceive'l by this
cunning device, and Buchanan was elected,
but the Union is ye, in danger. Never be de
ceived again. Buckle on your armor, make
your nominations, fight your battles for the
Constitution and tlie Union, [applause,] and if
the election of President gwes to the House of
Representatives, let it go there. [Applause]
Fight for the Constitution and the Union,un
der your own banner, and leave the result
With the got)of battles and the storm. If the
Democrats appeal to yon toaidr/it.,, i„ defeat
ing the Black Republicans and saving the
nioii, toll them thai the country ia not safe
iiieir hands. Suppose that Douglas is their
■inii.ee and is elected,.wilt the question of
.vers/ tie settled, and peace restored to tlie j
no try I Certainly not. The question will
ily be postponed four years, and tbe Black
.'publicans will only be enraged at their de
al They will say, "You got Illinois and

tiiv man can be, but dissolution is not the

I were made for that gentleman, and be

on this the anniversary birthday ol
c Washington, assembled ia council
indeevoriag to work out some plan
ie preservation of the Union. That
lould liuve to si.uiiil the alarm, and
,-n of every section, "your country is in
r—rally to its rescue." [Applauee.J

and the treasonable designs ot tbe Black
blieaaa. [Applause.) The Hotspurs ot
,uth tell us it is lime to counsel together,
repara tJ take sleps for tearing down
eatttiful fabric. The Black Republicans
9 North, wlio have driven the poor In
dians ti, the verge of the ocean to get their
lands tell us they are ready to destroy tins
I' moil to free Hie negroes. Tbe conservatives
oi -ill sections tell these tire-caters to let. the
lair fabric alone—to curry oat the provisions
of tbe Constitution—and thus preserve the
only tree government known to the world —
rApplause. 1 Some talk of a general cor-yen
uoti lo amend the Constitution. Mr. I. deri
ded that idea as ridiculous-declared the pre
sent Constitution, if Btrtctlf adhered to, was
good enough for hiin-nrged the South to de
raaud its rights in the Union, and to maintain
them at aU ha/ards-to demand the repeal of
all objectionable laws, and cave, as his opin
ion, that the conservatives of the North would
aid in securing those right-. He closed by a
handsome eulogy to the Constitution to me
Union, and to tbe Father ol hw Country.

ami repented for t*enty years. It was made
against Gen. Hanisou by tbe mine party who
supported Martin Van Buren, then called the
Northern man v» uh Southern priuciplee.
The speaker alluded to the statue of Henry
Clay, which lately arrived in thus city, aud
eulogized the patriotism of the women ol the
Stale, which led IhUUB to pay this tribute to
the memory of a man whom posU-rity would
say was one of the benefactors of his age.
Mr. .lannev said he was opposed to laying
down their arms in order lo enlist in the ranks
of the Democracy, with the expectation of be
ing able to carry slave property into Hie Ter
ritories. If it was not known before last
Thursday, it is now known, that the Hag to be
carried by the Democratic party will be in
scribed "Stephen A. Douglas and Squatter
Sovereignty." He then gave a definition of
squatter sovereignty, and proceeded to show
that most of the emigration to the Territories
would be from the North and from Europe,
and composed of people opiiosed to slavery:
and that if they laid down ibeir arms and
went over to Democracy iv Ihia expectation,
they would find that "their hopes bad been
wrecked. Tlie North has done ,is a grievous
wrong, which" must sooner or later be redress
ed ; but he would say that there bad been no
action iv Congress which instilled a dissolu
tion of the Union. [Applause.]
The speaker then traced tbe progress of po

He could not say bow long the aggressions
of the North must be borne; but il they be
came too great, let tbe Legislature of Virginia
call a Convention, and let that Convention
specify the course to be pursued. While bis
owa allegiance to the I.'uiou should never be
broken, lie would yield prompt obedience to
an edict of the people of the State InOoeven
j lion assembled.
Alluding to tbe Whig party, he said if they
j never became the dominant party, it was no
matter, so they saved the country. They had
j in times past bad periods of glory and gloom;
but he thanked Q d they never bad to blush
with shame. [Cheers.] Let them apply u> the

'IliE.ciii Oi' an Indian Princess.—Eunice
Man wee, the last full blood of the Pishgacb
tisok tribe ot Indiaus, died at Amenia, N. T,
on the irth instant, aged M 8 years. A letter
When Gideon Manweesemum, who was the*]
last Sachem of this tribe, ruled, the tract was
laid out in oblong strips, so as to give each 1
family an equal right to tbe fishing and bulit
i eg grounds, and the separate fields the Indians
were compelled to cultivate. Gideon is said
to have been a good ruler, compelling the In
dians to work, and prohibiting drinking, a
tiabit which is fatally fascinating to tbe Indian.
i'h.-v are said to have greatly prospered uudei' I
his reign. On the death of Gideon the office ol
Chief became vacant, though Eunice inherited j
the blood and distinction of royalty. During
tlie Revolution the tribe was quite numerous. I
furnishing a hundred warriors; now only nine
families of half-heeds (about tifty in aft) re
main. Eunice has been twice married, hot of
nine children she has not one living. With I
tier first husband, John Suttany, she came to
Kent, but ho dying, she married Peter Sher
man. In 1-il she was baptized, and received
into the Congregational Church In Kent, and
her subsequent life gave assurance of the sin
cerity of her faith.
