For over half a century the people of the American Republic have been proudly point ing to their system of Government as the best yet known in the world's history ; in fact we have claimed it as the only system under which the problem of self-government could be successfully established. So perfect have wc considered this system and so prosperous and happy have we been under it that we have thrown open our ports and extended our arms in viting the oppressed of all nations to come and share it with us. From thirteen we have swelled to thirty-three States ; since the adoption of the federal constitution we have gone on conquer ing and to conquer, buying, annexing and ad ding Territory until our domain extends from Her Majesty's possessions in the frigid North to the line of the Mexican Republic in the South, and from the Atlantic on the East across the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific in the West. Our people to-day are the most pros perous as a nation that the sun shines on, and as such are the envy of the nations of the world. Wc have more individual wealth ; less individual poverty, and by far more general comfort and prosperity than v.ny other people on the earth's surface. And too, on account of our system of Christianity and facilities for Education, wc1 arc Capable of doing more to elevate the ignorant, the oppressed and depres sed thrtn all the other nations of the earth put to gether. Not only are the hills and valleys of our own extended land dotted with churches and school houses where moral and religious truth is imparted to the masses of our own people but Our missionaries with Bible in hand haVc found their way to almost every land, and With our men ami substance we are labor ing td elevate the oppressed of other lands who know not whatiive institutions are. In all history ancient ami modern rio parallel is to bo found. Our g'rrfwth, prosperity, insti tutions, privileges civil and religious, stand alone without .an equal ; rnd yet they tell us that this signsitic structure must be demolish ed, and that on it, ruins tir possibly a dozen Republics mu.-t vprmg up. And why, pray ? Are we at war with aiiy foreign power V No. We are "at pcai'c with the whole world and the rest of mankind," but we war with each, other. There is 'the trouble,- Thirty million White people cannot agree as to what position three million creatures belonging to an inferior race shall occupy, and on account of this in significant number of an inferior race, totally incapable of self-governmont or self-preservation, Who were thrust upon us without our consent, and by the cupidity and avarice of that government which vow so deplores tlie exist ence of slavery here, the best Government upon the face of the earth is to be broken up. Avert it Heaven ! We of the South think that it is best for the African and for us that the relation of master and slave be continued, while a portion of the ISorth affect to believe otherwise. Now wc of .the South don't care What opinions they hold or how they express them, just so they keep "hands ofF" and observe the Constitution of 3fce United States. That instrument provides ,th a person held to service in one State escap ingisto another shall be surrendered up when demanded, &c. Hence all "personal liberty bills" .and all .efforts by the people of the North to prevent .the capture of fugitive slaves are vio lative of the Constitution of the United States, .and the people of the South have a right to de mand that these laws should be repealed and .that all aggressions by the nullifying States .should cease ; and this demand, if made by a united South, backed up as they would be by jthe million and a half of patriots at the North who voted against Lincoln, must and would be jieldcd. The Censtitutwn is no failure ; our glorious Union is ah that eould be desired, and if .those who are called to rule over us would observe and Veep the oath which is administer ed to jthem all these internal dissensions would be banished from the laud. Had the succes sors of Franklin Pierce enforced the fugitive .slave law as he did, in every instance, all " per. sonal liberty bills" would either have been re pealed or rendered inoperative before this time, and the present troubles would have been aver ted. The trouble is not an the law then but m a failure to execute it Sh&U ihe (Government le broken up then for jexistUig causes without one final effort to save it ? We hope not Let all the powers of the Constitution be exhausted ; let a Convention of all the States be demanded by the South, and $rhen the Convention assembles if the North refuses to yield what the South has a right to demand, let the delegates from the Southern States be clothed with power to declare the Union dissolved and proceed at once to frame a Constitution for a Southern Confederacy. This far we are willing to go but no farther. TTe are opposed to all separate State secession as not only ruinous to the State or States which secede, but also to those other Southern States which they attempt to drag into a movement which they cannot approve. But South Carolina is determined to go, and this determination 8 based, whatever they may say to the contrary, on the expectation that in a conflict jyUh hc General Government, which she means tp precipitate, other Southern States, though they may not approve her course, will - make common cause with her. If then North Carolina and other Southern States which favor a combined iOFemeDt to repel Northern ag gression do not intend to be involved in a precip itate movement with South Carolina they should speak out and let her know it, for as will be seen by the following letter from one of her most pro minent men the time for her to secede has been set : . LETTER FROM' GOVERNOR HAMMOND. RedcIiffe, Nov. 21, 1860. Gentlemen : I have just received your dis patch. It is impossible for me to reply with your flattering request. South Carolina will certainly secede from the Union on the 17th or 18th of December next. She intends to try it fully, at all costs. No more compromises of any sort. She will take no guarantee, but will go out high and dry and forever. If Georgia will back her, there will be but little or no trouble. I only wish she had called her Con vention for the'day before, and gone out first. We don't want to lead. We will gladly give Georgia the lead and all the honors. Let her put forth her hand and grasp them. She is, and must be, the Empire State of the South, and South Carolina will have, perhaps, a hard time without her sustaining arm. Your obedient servant, J. II. HAMMOND. Committee of tiie Mass Meeting, Columbus. Now we ask is North Carolina ready or willing to take up arms in defence of South Carolina du ring the present month, or will she wait until she can arm herself and go with the united movement which all the other Southern States invitos. Delay, if it does not serve to arrest the dread calamity altogether, will at least give us an op portunity to prepare ourselves to meet it. Twelve months ago, soon after the Virginia raid, we advocated the arming of the State, and called upon our rulers to move in the matter. They did not move, but now when there is cause to apprehend danger there is a party in the State that seem eager to precipitate us without preparation. If men with wisdom equal to this crisis should rise up and stay this storm men able to preserve the Union on the principles of the Constitution, which guarantees to every State equal rights, their names will be venerated by the generations who are to come after us as we now venerate the names of Washington and his compatriots. God grant that such men may be found ere it be too late. If South Carolina goes out of the Union alone and is permitted to stay out alone it will not be twelve months before her people, those of them in moderate circumstances especially, will be runing from the State to escape from the intolerable burdens which her attempt to support a government will impose. They must have an army and navy ; fortifications and li'dit houses along the coast; an internal postal system, and all the other machinery of an independent confederacy. I low is she to obtain the money ? She cannot raise it, nor support a separate government, and hence her attempt at self-government, if permitted to go, and stay out, will be a miserable failure. Be it understood then that while wc favor united action and united, resistance to further oppression from the North, we oppose separate State action as reckless, uncalled for, suicidal and ruinous ; and we shall insist that North Carolina keep her hands clear of any movement which does not look to a tin i ted 'front. " Uni ted we stand, divided we fall." If South Caro lina chooses regardless of our protestations and the protestations of her other sister States, to go out alone, and a conflict should ensue be tween her and Mr. Buchanan, we are for leav irv them to settle their own difficulties, while j the other Southern States should move on quict ! iy in their preparations for a final demand upon ! the North for a redress of grievances. Wc arc : not willing to surrender this Union without a i final struggle to save it. Call us a s?i7,texion j ,'st for advising this temperate but decided j course if you please, but. we feel as tens of j thousands feel North, South, Eas. and West, that if we tear down the present temple wc shall never construct another like it that if we lose, the present Union and destroy the present Constitution the light of freedom and free in stitutions goes out for a tiwe, if not forever. Wo smnt'nl to our countrymen, is not this Union worth preserving V We appeal to our Northern fellow citizens, who are our aggres sors and oppressors had you not rather do us justice and forever hush the voice of fanaticism and mock philanthropy in your own dominions, than lose all that you enjoy under the present Union ? If so then pause ; repeal your obnox ious local laws which are violative of the Con stitution of your Country and which rob us of our property. Do this do it speedily, and all may yet be well. If you do it not there is not a man in the whole South but is ready to take the fatal leap though he knew certain and sud den destruction awaited him. The North may now save the Union ; the South cannot. Her resolve has been made and from it she will not recede, though many of us may deplore the intemperate haste of South Carolina and other of the Cotton States. We all love our property in negroes much, and we love our honor more, and we tell the Northern people that the Rubicon has been passed ; it is the last feather that breaks the camel's back and as we are loaded down wc can bear no more. Aye, not only so, we demand retraction, apolo gy and satisfaction for the past. We repeat, it is alone in the power of the North to preserve the Union the South can notwill she do it ? We shall see. Realy we fear this is the great turning point in the world's history times that make the stoutest heart tremble. Geo. 1. ISisscIl & Co. Mr. Editor: Your notice of the impertinent letter of Geo. P. Bissell is published in the Times of this city with the following comment : We copy the following from the Newbern, North Carolina, Daily Progress, of Nov. 15, 18G0. That paper seems to look upon it as in very bad taste for a business letter, and de nounces it as " insolent." It Was directed to the Cashire of the Bank in Newbern. To the fellow-citizens of Bissell, who know what a perfect snob he is, and how utterly des titute of the qualities that mark a gentleman, his letter is quite consistent and characteristic. May the South continue to have such defamers as he! CIV lb. Hartford, Conn. Nov. 27. The Vote of ''Egypt" Complete.

' THE VIEWS OF SENATOR MASON. Senator James M.

Raleigh, Nov. 30th 18C0. - Mr. Editor: The Senate met at eleven o'clock to-day and was opened with prayer by the Rev. Mr.'WaithaL The Journal was then read and approved. Mr. Street offered a reso lution " to instruct the Judiciary Cpmmittee to enquire into the expediency of consolidating the office of Clerk and Master in Equity with that of Clerk cf Superior Courts." Adopted. Mr. Burton introducen u a Bill to increase the salaries of the Judges of the Superior Courts, and for other purposes." Passed first reading ordered to be printed, and referred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Turner: "A Bill to incorporate the Hillsboro' Military Academy." Passed first reading, and referred on motion of Mr. Eure to the Committee on Corporations. Mr. Walkup : " A Bill to revise and amend the Militia System of the State." Passed first reading and referred to the Joint Select Com mitteeon Military Affairs. Mr. Chas. II. K. Taylor, Senator elect from Granville county, appeared and was qualified. On motion of Mr. Dockery a brief leave of ab sence was granted to Mr. Rogers Senator from Northampton. A message from the House, announced the passage of Mr. Morehead's Bill to incorporate the Gardner Valley Mining Company, together with sundry amendments. The Senate, on motion of Mr. Morehead con curred in the proposed amendments. Leave of absence, for to-morrow, was granted to Mr. Speaker Clark, by the unanimous vote of the Senate. Mr. Walker was appointed Chairman pro tern until Mr. Claak's return. The Senate then adjourned. The pavement in front of our Post Office is crowded eyery afternoon by members and others, awaiting the opening of the mail. This evening a youth by the name of Smith, drunk, and consequently noisy, was ordered to be quiet by Mr. Parker, one of the town of ficers. Becoming violent and abusive, he as saulted Mr. P. with rather a dangerous looking knife. A brief struggle ensued, in which Mr. Parker by dint of sundry blows from the stick he carried, succeeded in quelling the offender and escorting him to the Guard House, with out sustaining any personal injury. Messrs. Boyce and Ashmore, members of Congress from South Carolina, addressed a large audience at the Yarborough House to night. They boldly advocated an immediate dissolution of the Union, and their disunion sentiments elicited no little applause. There were many Union men in the assemblage how ever, and whenever they let fall any expres sions which were at all conservative, or allu ded to their past (alas ! that it should be past !) devotion to the Union, the adherents of Bell and Douglas applauded while the ultra supporters of Breckinridge were silent. Mr. Boyce is possessed of some intelligence, and his speech., as a speech, was passable ; but Mr. Ashmore, his colleague is grossly illiterate. I lis speech was an ultra failure, mortifying to his friends, and violative in every individual sentence of the plainest gramatical rules, lie said "shincd" for "shone" " Son-thron" in variably for "Southern," and indeed succeeded in rendering himself ridiculously ludicrous. I should not "write so severely of him, though all I've said is true, had he not assumed so ar rogant and presumptuous a manner in preach ing his gospel of treason. Before these speeches were concluded the Court House bell began to ring and a brilliant bonfire was kindled in the street. This was but the inauguration of the most enthusiastic Union meeting I ever yet have seen. The Court House was soon respectably filled. The meeting was organized by the election of Ev erard Hall, Esq., (of the Register,") President of the meeting, Messrs. George W. Haywood, Si las Burns and Frank I. Wilson, Vice-Presidents, and Mr. William II. Finch, Secretary. When the meeting was fully organized, the Hall was densely thronged crammed to its utmost ca pacity. The fire-eating assembly over the way had joined us. The lion. Z. B. Vance was then introduced and received with the wildest en thusiasm, cheer after cheer ascended, and the j walls shook with the applauding thunders with j winch we greeted the gallant ..Mountain iov. The lateness of the hour lack of sleep and space alike prevent my attemntingto say much now of his truly magnificent effort. Clear, logical, convincing, eloquent, witty, sarcastic and humorous, no one could uo it justice.

I learn that Mr Holden will be placed on this committee. He , iunored Messrs. Boyce and Ashmore, and with other leading democrats was present at this meeting, which cooled the ardor ol many a wearer of the blue cockade. Yours, daily, QU ID N L'JS C. Raleigh, Dec. 1st, 1S00. Mr. Editor : The Senate proceedings of to day possess but little interest. 1 will give, however, a oriel s3'nopsis : Mr. Bledsoe introduced "a bill to alter tne 1st section of the 28th chapter ot the Revised Code." Read 1st time ordered to be printed, and referred to the Finance Committee. Mr. Thomas, of Davidson : " A bill to author ize E. B. Hampton, Sheriff of Davidson, to col lect arrears of taxes." Referred to the Com mittee on Propositions and Grievances. Mr. Dowd: A resolution to raise a select committee to enquire into the expediency of creating another Judicial Circuit. Referred on motionof Mr. Uarringer to the Judiciary Com mittee. . , Mr. Burton : "A bill to divide the Mate into eight Judicial Circuits." Ordered to be printed, and referred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Thomas, of Jackson : "A bill to amend the act of 1783 concerning the Cherokee In dians. Referred to the J udiciary Committee. Mr. Arendcll : "A bill to appoint a Mayor and Commissioners for Morehead City. Re ferred to the Committee on Corporations. Mr. Turner : "A resolution requesting the Governor to lay before the Senate papers and correspondence relating to the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal Company, and to inform the Senate if the works of said Cam pony were un der mortage to whom, and for what amount. Adopted. Mr. Thomas, of Jackson : "A bill to amend the charter of the Hanging Dog Turnpike Com pany. Referred to the Committee on Internal Improvements. Mr. Thomas, of Jackson : "A resolution in structing the Committee on Internal Improve ments to enquire into the expediency of amend- ing the act ot concerning me iu-muu Turnpike. Adopted. The Senate then adjourned. There was another large and enthusiastic mnntinirnfthft Union men to-nisrht. The use of t.hi Commons Hall had been asked and grant cd without a single dissenting voice. At an the hall was densely thronged the galleries were crowded with beautiful ladies and very many were compelled to stand with scarce ly standing room. The meeting was organized by the election of Quentin Busbee President. George T. Cooke, J. J. Fcrrel, Jeff. Fisher and Henry J. Brown, Esqrs., Vice Presidents. Frank I. Wilson and Wm. II. Finch, Esqrs., were ap pointed Secretaries. At the meeting held at the Court House on Friday evening, to which I have formerly alluned, a committee of seven was appointed to draft resolutions expressive of the views, policy, and feelings of conserva tive. Union-loving men of all political parties. This committee, throngh its cixiirman, W. W. Holden, Esq.. reported a series of resolutions, which looked to the maintenance of Soutiierx Rigiits and Soi'ttiern Honor, in the Uniox, and under the Constitution if possible, while boldlv repudiating and spurning all idea ot Sub mission to further aggression upon the Consti tutional rights of the South. Mr. Holden ad vocated their adoption and deprecated hasty se cession. He thought the rash action of South Carolina dangerous, impolitic, and highly inju rious to her Southern sisters. But I must be brief. Mr. Holden's remarks were received with warm applause. Henry W. Miller, Esq., was then called for and addressed the meeting for more than two hours. Eloquent, logical, and convincing, his effort made a profound im pression on every mind. , - , . A communication from the ladies of Raleigh was sent from the galleries., accompanied by a beautiful boquet, as a compliment to the Hon. Z. B. Vance. - f Mr. Vance arose amid prolonged cheering, gracefully thanked the ladies', ably advocated the passage of the resolutions, and fully dis cussed the momentous issues arising from the impending crisis. When Mr. Vance concluded the resolutions (these resolutions arc to be intro duced in both branches of the General Assem bly at an early day,) passed by acclamation and the throng dispersed. . QUID NUNC. ORIGINAL PO&RY. 16 the Memory f a Vouhjc Connirt, itlnry Thom . BY LAURA EGGLESTON. Farewell Mary! thou art sleeping, Nevermore, to wake in time Manjr friends are sad and weeping. And affliction' waters chime. Gleams the rainbow, pure and holy. Then it passes from the sight ; Fades the rose and lilly lowly, And the brilliant day in night. Thns the young, the good and giltctf. Perish in life's weary track ; When the hand of Death is lifted And tee do not wish them back ! Mary thon art blest and singing With the bright immortals now; In thy hand the gold harp ringing, And the crownlet on thy brow. All thy suffering past and ended. Sorrow, trial, care and ill, And redeemed, thy soul ascended Eden's vast, celestial hill. In Eternity's dominions In love's everlasting suu. Now expand, angelic pinions, And the race immortal run. Mourning husband ! kindred weeping. Look to God and trust His love ; Though your gentle friend is sleeping, Her pure spirit lives above. Love. O, love the men Saviour, Follow in His path divine ; Oh ! bow blessed is His favor, " Richer than the golden mine. " Of more value thin the sparrows. Are ye," said the King of kings; And we need not fear Death's arrows If we love the " heavenly things."' Yea, in faith and tmst supernal, Let us spend our fleeting time ; Till we go to " things eternal," In the spirits natal clime. In the moral vineyard holy, Work unseen all round us lies, Eaise the fallen, weak and lowly, Ope the sinner's mental eyes. When receding from onr vision. Is this earth with each fra.l thing, Sweet the plaudit from Elysiam, "Well done," on our soul, will ring. Gorman, N. Y Nov. 6, 18G0. Wife of William Thomas. Impromptu : Musitigs on a little Black-Cap. BY LA UK A EGGLESTOX. I sat by my casement. Perusing God's Tome; Round attic and casement The storm-king did come, In Autumn's last glory, The wild winds did ravo, And sang a sad story, Of flowers in their grave. Of youth too, and gifted. That died with the rose ; Methonght sadly sifted, The rain, sleet, and snows; On earth's bosom faded, To shroud it in white ; And Luna was shaded In clouds, ere 'twas night. I saw sofrly fluttering My easement along, A wild songster littering, A heart-thrilling song: Cold twilight, advancing, It seemed to plead. For food, at me glancing, To tell ot its need. Unclosing the shutter. So gently and still ; ' Sweet bird ! " I did utter, ' Come feed on the sill.'' The bird wild, but trusting, My sympathy sweet. Flew back, softly dusting, The snow-pearls, and eat. O ! sweet was the vision, In tempest and storm ; And thoughts of ElJaii About me did swarm. The great God of Xatnre, The wee birds doth feed. Our blessed Creator, That knoweth our need ; And storm, and wind-wailingy All passed from my ken, But God's love unfailing, And goodness to men, Exalted my spirit In piety's stall ? What doth he not merit, The Saviour of all Come, trust Him, ye mortals, And learn of his lore ; And enter the portals, Of Truth evermore. My musings were over, The chicadee fled, In darkness a rover, To find its wild bed ; The storm too, had ended, The pure stars came out, And moon-light descended, From Heaven's high court.
