Voice of Clay is 1839. A Warning against
Abolitionists. Abolition should no longer be
regarded as an imaginary danger. The aboli
tionists, let me suppose, succeed in their pre
sent aim of uniting the inhabitants of the free
States as one man against the inhabitants of
the slave States. Union on the one side will
beget Union on the other. And this process
of reciprocal consolidation will bo attended
with all the violent prejudices, embittered pas
sions and inplacable animosities which ever
degraded or deformed human nature. A vir
tual dissolution of the Union will have taken
place, while the forms of its existence remain.
The most valuable element of union, mutual
kindness, the feelings of sympathy, the fra
ternal bonds which now happily unite us will
have been extinguished forever. One section
will stand in menacing and hostile array
against the other. The collisslon of opinion
will be quickly followed by the clash of arms.
His Picture of the Consequences. I will not
attempt to describe scenes which now happily
lie concealed from our view. Abolitionists
themselves would shrink back in dismay and
horror at the contemplation of desolated fields,
conflagrated cities, murdered inhabitants, and
the overthrow of the faircat fabric of human
government that ever rose to ankaale the
hopes of civilized man.
Nor should abolitionists flatter themselves
that, if they can succeed in their object of uni
ting the people of the free States, they will en
ter the contest with numercal superiority that
must ensure victory. All history and expe
rience proves the hazard and uncertainty of
war. And we are admonished by Holy Writ
that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle
to the strong.
Thc Conqueror and the Conquered. But if
they were to conquer, whom would they con
quer? A foreign foe, one who. had insulted
our flag, invaded our shores and laid onr coun
try waste? No, sir, no. It would be a can
quest without laurels, without glory a self, a
suicidal conquest a conquest of brothers aver
brothers, achieved by one over another portion
of the descendants of common ancestors, who
nobly pledged their fortunes and their sacred
honor, had fought and bled side by side in
many a hard battle on land and ocean, severed
our country from the British crown and estab
lished our national independence.
ITis Defence of Southern Action. The in
habitants of the slave States are sometimes ac
cused by their Northern brethren with display
ing too much rashness and sensibility to the op
erations and proceedings of Abolitionists. But
before they can be rightly judged there should
be a reversal of conditions. Let me suppose
that the people of the slave States were to form
societies, subsidize presses, make large pecunia
ry contributions, send forth numerous mission
aries throughout their own borders, and enter
into macmnations to Durn tne Deautitul capi
tals, destroy the productive manufactories, and
sink in the ocean the gallant ships of the
Northern States. Would these incendiary pro
ceedings be regarded as neighborly and friend
ly, and consistent with the fraternal sentiments
which should ever be cherished by one portion
of the Union toward another ? Would they
excite no emotion ? occasion no manifestations
of dissatisfaction, nor lead to any acts of retali
atory violence ? But the supposed case is far
short of the actual one in a most essential cir
cumstance. In no contingency could these
capitols, manufactories and ships rise in rebel
lion and massacre the inhabitants of the North
Abolitionists in Mississippi.
The Memphis Argus, has received the fol
lowing letter from Mr. Samuel J. Hale, of the
firm of Berlin & Hale, clothiers, Front Row,
Memphis. It is dated at Friar's Point, Miss.,
Dec. 11, and is as follows :
There is great excitement in this community.
The people are in arms against the Northern
men who have been in the country but a few
months. On yesterday evening two gins and
a negro quarter were fired simultaneously,
doubtless by the procurement of these wretch
es. The night was lit up for miles around.
The vigilance committee were soon under arms,
and provided to the room of three carpenters,
one by the name of Hamlin, the others un
known, and took them and hung them to the
first tree, and stfiemfirds cut them down and
The town is now uuder arms, the military
are parading the streets, ad all is excitement
,and alarm. This morning the remainder of
the Northern men were sent up the river on
the steamer Peytona, some of them were brand
ed with the letters G, B, (gin burners) before
shipped. Fourteen gins bave been burned in
this county during the lst six weeks, and the
peophi have determined t stop it.
An Abolitionjsist was hanged, barrelled up
and ro&ed into the river at this point last wceka
and it was probably to avenge his deth that
the last gins ere fired. A negro implicated
the men who were hung. He said that they
had told birn all the negroes were to be free
next March, srhen Lincoln becomes President,
and that there wiji be a generaj rising of the
negroes then, ' '
The vjgilence committee hive sworn to hang
overy Northern man who comes here from this
time until the 4th of March, and all Euch had
oeuer oe in n i man Friar's Fojnt.

GENERAL SCOTT ON SECESSION,
A telegraphic report from Washington city says
that General Scott has given the President an el
aborate opinion in reference to the present condi
tion of the military defences of the country, and
what should be done in yiew of possible contin
gencies. He of course deprecates secession, and
begs his own State of Virginia to pause and bear
the ills she has rather than fLy to those she knows
not of. But, if secession occurs, he says it will re
sult not in the formation of two. but four distinct
nationalities. The correspondent gives the divi
sions as near as he can recollect them, as follows:
The first will probably consist of New York, New
England, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Io
wa and Minnesota: the second will ooHsist of In
diana, Illinois, Ohio, Western Virginia, and so
along down the Blue Ridge, taking in Western
'Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennes
see, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Texas.
The third will consist of South Carolina, Georgia,
East .Florida, Eastern Virginia, . and perhaps
Maryland and Delaware. The Pacific Elates will
constitute the fourthy - The General treats the
exclusion of the grain-growing States of the West
from a direct communication with the Gulf of
i.f e-riVn as an impossibility. " They will have free
course to go down the Mississippi, and yr'l insist
upon Pensacola as a nayal depot. He also gives,

A Gloomy Picture.
The Charleston Me rcury seems to exult at
the probable starvation and slaughter of a por
tion of its countrymen. Hear it:
The Tempest. Brewing at the North. Al
ready comes from the North, by every mail, the
muttering of the approaching storm the cry of
starving men. Already we see long editorials in
their papers, discussing schemes whereby men
can be fed who want bread. The want of employ
ment from the stagnation in business and failure
in trade, has thrown thousands of men tipon their
country who don't know how or where to find
food. The terrors of a Northern winter, and the
grim aspect ot Famine, is staring them in the
face. The work has but begun. In a few brief
weeks the unknown dread will have become a
stern reality. And then, when gaunt and shiver
ing men, women and children shall walk their
streets, not alone, or in pairs, but in desperate and
savage crowds; and when the shout shall break
upon the ear for ' breador blood;1' and when there
shall be Wood, but little bread ; when serving labor
shall sirike the props from under capital; and when
finally, that guilded temple at tbe North, built up
from robbery upon the South, shall fall, and Ra
pine among the ruins shall supply to the laborer
the means of subsistence then shall they realize
onr wrongs and our might, and at that day may
they call upon God, for he alone will heed them.
Our ear will be deaf to their solicitations. The
debt between us will be cancelled. As two na
tions we shall shortly face each other each to
guard its own interests. If the North is self sus
taining it will quickly rebound from its fall, and
hie on its pathway of prosperity and riches. But
should it prove otherwise, terrible will be the re
tribution they will reap. By their own licentious
acts they will have fallen and they will fall nev
er to rise again, but as a broken, needy and hum
The Value of Sabbatu'Schools. A fact
which ought always to be remembered in esti
mating the influence of Sabbath-schools, is
that very much of their work is " underground"
or, as one has said, it is in its very nature a pre
paration of the ground and a seed sowing, a
work very necessary to be done, but which
must be followed by other operations, or in the
joy of the harvest, if may be forgotten or con
temned. In many instances the Sabbath
school, while it has not indeed secured the
conversion of those who have attended it, yet
has been a restraining power in all the after-life,
and its instructions; carelessly recived, it may
be when given, revived in after years, have
prevented an outburst of wickedness which
would otherwise have been given way to.
The trophies of sabbath-schools are on every
hand, wherever the schools have been con
ducted with the true spirit and with perser
vence. From the various schools of this coun
try, thousands and tens of thousands of souls
have been added to the Church of Christ.
Many most precious revivals of religion have
commenced in our Sabbath schools ; many vig
orous Churches have grown out of them, and
they have frequently followed the tide of emi
gration to our frontiers, and supplied, for a
period, in many instances, the only means of
grace for the destitute part of the country. ,

The subscribers are now prepared to fill ordess for
the celebrated Utley Plow, (Patented in 1858), for the
for the counties of Carteret, Craven. Onslow, Joces,
Greene, Pitt, Washington, Beaufort, Hyde and Tyr
rell. The Plows are lor one horse or more. They
range No. 1 and No. 1, A. for one horse, No. 2 and
No. 2 for two or more horses. Each one of tbe one
horse plows can be easily and quickly changed into
four different, perfect plows adapted to all the various
kinds of work on a plantation, sub-soiling included.
An ordinary horse can easily plow a farrow 7 inches
deep and from 7 to 8 inches wide, throwing the' dirt
from the furrow almost as perfectly as a spade can.
It throws no dirt on the land side. Cotton or Corn
2 inches high can be plowed with it. The depth for
tbe plow to run is regulated by a screw in the stock
and may be altered in a minute with out the plough
man leaving the handles. The two horse plows
operate in the same manner except the changes into
different kinds. The plow is light and strong ; the
whole arrangement simple, durable and cheap. It
has taken the premium at all the State and connty
fairs at which it has been exhibited. Every farmer
who has seen them run here is delighted and pro
nounces it the best plow that they have ever seen.
So sure are we that it is just the thing that you
want, that if upon trial, it does not give satisfaction
you may return it at our expense. That you may the
more easily supply yourselves we will sell the right
to the following counties Greene, Pitt, Washington
and Tyirell which are not of easy accessto us. We
will also sell some of the other counties if desired.
We shall establish agencies in the different coun
ties as soon as possible if we find it advisable. Tli6
whole thing is Southern almost entirely North Caro
linian and as we are permanent citizens of Newbern
you need faar no humbug. A trial is all we ask.
