A few days since, we endeavored to show, ut the pictures of rdkn and de:lation to e South, which the subjisiolists to Black .publicani domination were so continually awing, to " fright us front our propriety," -re unreal and flse. We propose now to verse the picture, and to show wVhat will obably be the consequences of a submission the Southern States, to the rule of Aboli inism at Washington, in the persons of essrs. Lincoln and Hailin, should they be ct(d to the Presidency and Vice-Presidency the United States. 1.

If, after all the threats of re ta-ce and disumion,- Imade in Congeas a3Wl it of Congress, the Southern States sink iwn into acquiescence, the demoralization the South will be complete. Add the pat. nage resulting from the control of ninety ur thousand offices, and the expenditure of ghty millions of mioncy annually, and they ust be irresistible in controlling the Gener Government. 2. To plunder the South for the benefit of e North, by a new Protective Tariff, will one of their first neasures of Northern etional dominion ; and, on the otherhand, exhaust the treasury by sectional schemes apjpropriation, will be a congenial policy. 3. Immediate danger will be brought to very, in all the Frontier States. When a rty is enthroned at Washington, in the xecutive and Legislative departments of the overnment, whose creed it is, to repeal the igitive Slave Laws, the under-ground rail ad, will become an over-ground railroad. hc tenure of slave property will be felt to weakened; and slaves will be sent down the Cotton States for sale, and the Frontier aes enter on the policy of mn'ainy themsdeves ce S 'ath. e 4. With the control of the Gevernment of e United States, and an organized and tri nphant North to sustain them, the Abuli mists will renew their operations upon the ith with increased courage. The thousands every country, who look up to power, and ke gain out of the future, will come out support of the Abolition Government. The ownlows and Botts', in the South, will ganize; and from being a Union Party, to pport an Aboli:ion Government, they will come, like the Government they support, bolitionists. They will have an Abolition rty the South, aof Southern men. The con st for slavery, will no longer be one be -een the North naid the South. It will be the South, between the people of the iuth. 5.
