that the Southern Disooioniets ana the North
era Abolitionist are both struggling to ac
coo.plish the lame object. Toombs, Rbett,
Vanoey, and otber disonionisti, say there is
oo safety for tbe institution of slavery bot
actual and final secession from tbe Northern
State. Tbi is precisely tbe doctrine advo.
cated by tba Abolitionist of the Garrison
school, wbo denounce tbe Constitution ol
this glorious Union as "a covenant with death
and a leagoa with bell." None rejoice
more at the secession movements of tbe Soutb
tbao Wendell Phillips, Garrison, and otber
of that class. Wendell Phillips, a few days
since, declared io a public speech at Boston,
that "Disunion was Abolitiouism,"and would
accomplish what they desired.

On Saturday evening, Gen. Cameron ar
rived in Philadelphia, at the Cirard Houso,
where be was serenaded by bis political

tbe hotel, where Gen. Cameron made a con
versational speech, io wbicb be referred to
tbe secession movements, and to the deplora
ble condition of the country. He said I
I am one of those wbo supported tbe
electioo, and mean to sustain tbe adminislra-
tioo of Mr. Lincoln, cordially and faithfully
upon tbe principles laid down in tbe Chicago
platform. But 1 atn willing to make any
reasonable concession, not involving a vital
principle to save this great country from
anarchy and bloodshed, and to preserve the
proud posiliou.whicb it occupies bcrore tbe
world. It is oot necessary to take a step
backwards in supporting tbe resolutions of
Mr. Crittenden, which seem to meet tbe lull
approbation of the people of tbis city, if it be
amended so as nut to extend to territory
hereafter to be acquired, and not to remove
from it tbe feature which proposes to mcor
purate into the Constitution the doctrine of
the tired bcott decision.
1 prefer to leave tbe Constitution on that
subject as made by our fathers, nntil reason
shall have again assumed bar proper fcway
over tbe public mind, in otber words lam
ready and williug that tbe Missouri coin pro
mise shall be restored. Tbe repeat of that
measure led to tbe organization of the Re
publican party. Upon that question it gained
its strength and secured its victory. If now
our Uniou loving brethren of the Slave lior
der fctutes shall be willing to nnite witb us in
its restoration, and accept tbat as the basis
of settlement of existing difficulties, wby
snould we nesilale thus to meet tiietn T
These sentimeats I took occasion to ex press
a few days since, in my place in tbe Senate of
tbe Coded States, in doing so 1 did not
mean to endorse all tbe sentiments expressed
by my colleague ( M r. Biglor, but only meant
cordially to express my opprouatioo or tbe
spirit and seulitnem in favor oi tbe Union
wbicb he expressed. I did, however, express
my willingness lo support and vote for his
proposition, if tbat would satisfy tbe voilenl
men of tbe bomb, aud bring them buck to
tbeir doty.
His proposition is simply to submit tbe
Crittenden amendments to a vote or tbe
people for tbeir adoption or rejection. As a
last resort, when Congress shell prove itself
incompetent to adjust existing difficulties end
when tbe disruption of the Union into two
Confederacies shall become inevitable, 1 shall
bold it to be my dutylo join in an appeal to
tbe people to tuke the mutter into tbeir own
bands, aud determine in tbeir own way, as
they may deem best.
For a life time 1 have never yet seen pub
lic opinion wroag, lormed after duo delibera
tion and reflection. This is a Government,
not of States, but or the people of tbe States
and they will oot suffer this glorious Confed
eracy to be destroyed at the dictations ol
selbsb agitator wbo may be governed by
personal ambition. Failing in all efforts,
either in Congress or by action oo tba part
of tbe people themselves, to restore concord
and harmony, and civil suite must come opoo

It is well known that England and France,
bave been Baking extraordinary eiTorts to relieve
themselves from their dependency on the United
States for the supply of Cotton. That they bave.
In a measure succeeded, is evident from the fact
that one-third of their supply now come from
other quarters. Tbat the war with China had
much to do with this matter, we always believed.
That country now produces much more of that
staple than we do, and wsuld be able to supply
England and France, aa will be seen by the fol
lowing correspondence of the New York Times i
"Tbe far-seeing Emperor of Franca only
availed himself of Chinese outrage opon a
French missionary as a pretext fur obtaining
Coolie labor for tbe cultivation of cotton iu
Algeria, that France may obtain her supplies
thence, and be independent in tbat particular
of tbe reBt of tbe world. Travelers io Cbioa
inform us tbat tho valley of the Yaug-lse-Kiang
is twice as large as tbe valley of tbe
Mississippi, and that it is wholly a cotton
belt. This great valley is cultivated by irri
gation, and yields a crop of cereals besides a
crop of cotton, oo tbe same soil, during each
year, without exhaustien of tbe land, which
is fertilized by the water that is Bowed upon
it from lime to time. Jn view of this fuct,
John Mitchel's statement tbat tbe cotton
crop ol Cbiua is six times as large as that of
all our Southern ftlutes IB not so surprising.
It will be remeiuber-jd tbut live or six years
ago, Hon. Humphrey Marshall, then Minis
ter tu China, reported ollicially to 'the Slate
Department tbut tbe cotton crop of tbe vol
ley of the Yaog-lsu alone exceeded tbe en
tire cotton crop of tho United States. The
reader will bear io mind that this crop was
raised upon only a portion of the district
named. It is estimated tbat tbe Yana-tse
Valley is capable ol producing ten times the
amouut of cottou produced iu tbe American
Slates: wkile it is notorions that Chinese
labor ul home is the cheapest in the world
for the laborers, wbo are coolent wilb earn
ing a bare subsistence, live chiefly upon rice,
are simple io tbeir babits, aud require tnutth
less clothing than is indispensable for our
negro bluves. Cbiuese laborers, too, besides
being cheap and abundant, are fur more in
telligeut thun nogro laborers, require a less
expensive system of supervision, and can ac
complish nio re work in a given liuie aud do
it better. From the population distributed
aloug the Valley of the Yang-lse, France cun
now obtain precisely tbe description of labo
rers she now needs for Algeria.
It will eveutually tara out that England
bus obtained some concession wbicb give ber
an opportunity to trade wilb the interior of
Cbiua, oo the Yang-tee River, and we may
t-xpucl to see British merchants, at an early
day, settled iu the towns all along its naviga
ble length. Through their instrumentality
Ihe Chinese will be induced to improve llioir
system ol coltoti-raisiug, improved agricul
tural implements, witb American cotton seed
and gins, will speedily be introduced, and iu
vunous ways the production of cottou will be
eucouraged and stimulated.
Tbe important facts and suggestions above
noted, seem to iudicate tbat Culten is not
much lunger tube "King," at least so far as
France and England ore concerned." S.
HOW at.ttait WoltKS
The Washington correspondent of the
New York Lxpres writes :
"A relative of Col. John I'reston, of South
Carolina, states tbut in a recent interview
with that gentleman, he informed bim that
he regarded himself as a bankrupt, end that
all his friends in South Carolina were in the
same condition, including bis brother in law,
Wado Hampton, always regarded as one or
tho wealthiest men of the tioulb ; tbat there
was no money iu circulation, and no possibili
ty of collecting debts' Col. Prestou is a
Stale Uigbts man and co-operationist, but
be was not altra enough to be elected to the
Convention. Ity hit marriage witb the
daughter of General Hampton, be is the
possessor of a very large estate. If he, and
others of equal we.iltb, are suffering for want
of money, it may easily be imagined what is
the condition of persons of moderate menus."
Tbe Wasbingtoo correspondent of the
World narrates tbe contents of a private let
ter from Soutb Carolina, io which tbe writer
says that "persons who, at other times, are
well off, are sorely embarrassed for tbe ne
cessaries of life for themselves and tbeir de
pendents. There is but little money io cir
culation, and when our scanty stock of pro
visions is gone, where lo get a fresh supply
none of us can tell. The premonition of im
pending calamity weighs down my spirits and
makes my nights wakeful." The writer makes
the following suggestion :
"I think if the act of magnanimity would
not be taken as a taunt, or construed into
giving aid and comfort lo the enemy, t would
tie a qooit tiling (or the merchants ot Act
York to load a vessel with breadstuff's, and
sead them to Charleston, to be distributed
among the poorer classes, ss no evidence of
fraternal affection, wbicb would be revived in
full force if South Carolina would give op
ber neuatural position."
The same evil and troubles are spreading
themselves io Cieorgia and Alabama.
CP NoRTHaaff Central Railroad Cox
rim. In the report of the Comptroller of the
Slate of Mary land, is the following item relative
to the financial condition of the above named
company :
"There was received into the treaauiy from
this company, during ihe fiscal year, the sum of
3 10,01)0 only or the $911,000 annuity due, in
accordance wuh the proviaiom of chapter 2M of
the Acta of AaaemMy of 1 H -" 4 . Jn consequence
of this default Ihe Comptroller, as required by
law, instituted legal proceedinge againat the
company, and the eminent legal gentleman
appointed hy your Excellency special attorney in
this case, in coujunctiun with the State's attorney
of Baltimore city, has obtained a judgment
againat it, and an injunction restraining the
company from applying the receipts ot Ihe road
lo any other purpose, except to defray neeeaairy
repairs and txpenaes, until ilia claim of the State
shall first have been aatisfied. The quarterly
payments due from this company have been
regularly received up to about eighteen months
ago, aud it is lo be hoped that tb load will
hereafter be conducted in aurb a manner aa to
re-establish its character and relieve its embar
rassments." The Philadelphia North American, referring
to these difficulties, aays :
"The Northern Central Pailroad ia vehement
ly attacked by the IJaltimora Kepublican, (Dem.)
aa in the interest of Penm ylvania. The work
shops have beeu removed from Ualtiiuore into
this fetale, and the organization, il ia alleged,
will soon also paaa into th bands of Pennsylva
nia. Well, seeing tbat tbe greater part of the
road lies in this Htale, and that nine-tenths of
tbe business u derivtd fram It, this is not very
extraordinary. Tba trouble, probably, lie in
tba fact that the road wsa built by Pennaylvaniana,
while Uattiuiore expects to reap the wbole benefit
of it."

biscuit opon a steamer comiug in. Along
the beach batteries bave beeu thrown p of
sand, and tbe young men stationed there are
prepared to give a good account of any vessel
that will bave the temerity to enter."
To the same effect write maoy intelligent
persons from Alabama and Mississippi. A
letter from the former State says :
"It is astonishing to see bow ready all are
to be enrolled in tbe Southern army. Tbe
best men of the country mechanic!, planters
merchants, lawyers are anxious to take a
share in the defence of the country. It
would seem ordinary that such a slate of
things would produce low spirits among the
people, but this not the case here cow. I
am acquainted witb the history of tbe Italian
campaign, and 1 venture to Buy there is as
much enthusiasm among our peoplo in re
gard to fighting tor tbeir rights than there
was in Garibaldi's ranks. As a singular in
stance, 1 want to mention C. White, of tbis
county, a brother-in-law of President Lin
coin, wbo bas joined the volunteers, and bus
gone to help to tuke Foit Morgan."
We find in tbe l'ittsburg Journal the sub

The same issue of tbe same paper remarks :
