I^kktfie Senate.'' ?
The St. Louis/Bulletin says :l The pres? ent Domoerat&liiwjority in the^Senatecf? tho United States is*-sb larg% that tho un reflectin'g may be disposed to underrate tho importance of-t$rc late loss of two Sen afec^roia^aSialo of-Oregon, by a cor? rupt coalition between the Black Repub? licans and Douglas Freosqilers. But a otrrsory glance at the probable condition of parties :in tho Senate after .the 4th of March next, will satisfy any one that the Democratic .majority will bo so.smallas not to bo entirely reliable, and1 that, in a short time thereafter, th? Black Ecpubli cahs will probably havo control of the Sen - ate as well as the House of Rcpresenta1 tives. Alter the admission of Kansas, there will be sixty-eight1 Senators, of which thirty-five is a majority. At the begin? ning of the next Administration the dem? ocrats will have 'thirty Senators from the Southern States, and six from the North? ern, viz : one from New Jersey, one from Minnesota, tAV? from Indiana, and two from California, making a total of thirty six, or only, one more than a majority. - We have classed among the Democrat? ic Sonators, Mr. Kennedy, of Maryland, Who is not a Democrat, but who will al? ways be found voting with the South against the Black [Republicans; and wo have excluded Mr. Douglas, who will act hereafter with the Black Republican par? ty, and Mr. Bigler, who cannot be re-elect? ed this winter, owing to the Douglas di? vision in Pennsylvania, which will give the Legislature'to the Black Republicans. Hence it will"'be seen that a change of three will give tho Black Republicans con . trol of the Senate, and Mr. Douglas can ^^^^ O q?nd will doubtless bring about that change at the next cloction in New Jersoy, Indi ana'and Minnesota. 1 Not long since thcro was an overwhel? ming majority in the House of Represen? tatives, which was swejit away at the next election by the treachery of Stephen A. Douglas, who joined the Black Repub Keans in ii war upon a Democratic Ad? ministration, and thereby carried over a large portion of tho Northern Democra? cy into the ranks of the Black Republi? can party. Yet conservative men conso? led themselves'* with the reflection that the Senate could defeat any unconstitu " flional legislation on the part of the House ^'Representatives. When it became ev? ident that Mr. Douglas, by his course in tbe present campaign, was striving' to break: up tho Democratic party, and elect a Black ? Republican to the Presidency, and that there wore strong probabilities that he would succeed, inen s^?Ml?pfid that no harm j^ojjitU-fec"done,' and criod, "lookto the^Senate." - That last bulwark is about to bo swept aw'ay by the action of tho Donglasites, and should Lincoln be . elected, ho will, "have both branches of Congress favorable to him before his term is half finished. With the executive Jind legislative depart? ments of the government under their con? trol,' the Black Republicans can easily . carry out Mr. Seward's favorite ideas, and remodel the judiciary so as to abolitionize it also. Every department of the govern? ment will then be in the hands of the Black Republicans, and Lincoln's and Se? ward's " irrepressible conflict" will thou have, nothing to oppose its progress. These things call for serious reflection on' the part of those who would preserve the- equal rights of tho States. What protection can there be for our rights, with'every branch of tho government in the hands of the enemies of the Constitu? tion and of the rights of tho Southern : States? - ' Disunion.?Gen. L. P. Walker, of Ala? bama, we note, does not attempt to con? ceal his disunionism. In a speee? made recently at Cowpon Springs, in Laudor dalo County, he is reported in a Jotter to the Montgomery Advertiser as follows: In reply to the question, "what would he do if Lincoln was elected ?" Gen, W. said, drawing himself up to his full height, and in the sublimest strain of eloquence, th& come weal, or come woe, so help him ^God. he would not submit, and that he wtHuld take thobannerof tho Constitution, and plant it where the honor or safety of the South demanded, and that he would defend it with his life and fortune against Saracens or Moors! His answer was no? ble and grand, and nobly was it answered by the crowd. One old gentleman, whose white locks and tottering form indicated that he had ran his "three-score years and ten," called Gen. W. to his chair, after he closed, and with tears running down his checks, said, "Gcnoral, I wish I was young, I would fight and die with you." I do not honestly believe, except two or . throe Douglas leaders, that there were a half dozen in the crowd that dissented from Gen. Walker's speech. Our people arc now thoroughly aroused. ?-* Louisiana Moving.?The New Orleans Delta says that a number of the citizens of Louisiana, including many of the most prominent merchants of Now Orleans, without regard to party, havo addrosed to Governor Mooro a petition, requesting to convene tho Legislature of the S?a^?>45;jth a view of taking measures to meet the^gt^jjolitical crisis Avhieh now confronts the Soul The District of GbkimBr^^^^ R population of 75,000, having Im^U^ about one- third piurl i? the lasteten years. " AQ.Nuxir Men in Fiorida.?Tho Fer nandina-East Floridian says: "Wc are pleased to learn that a compa? ny of <;Mihute Men" has recently been or ?ganized in ?Fernandina, under the most favorable circtimstanccs. The association already numbers amongst its members many of our most respectablejyoungmen, who arc fully impressed with the cmor-' gency now so imminent, and who are pre? pared to defend and protect those rights whose destruction is speedily threatened. The *cbfuc"eo'ckado',-i3 familiar to many-of the citizens of Florida, and . the Palmetto State is not the only section where that emblem will bo worn and appreciated. From the tone and temper of the people 'of Florida, we confidently expect that the organization of " Minute Men " will per? vade every portion of the Stato, and em? brace within its ranks our best and most patriotic citizens. Success to it! -? St. Bartholomew's P. ARisn.?A corps of mounted riflemen, sixty-three rank and file, have been formed in this Parish, and aro known .as," Marion Men of Comba bahec." They have solected the following officers: W. J. Henderson, Captain; F. Hughes, 1st Lieutenant.

An advertisement in this issue announces to our community that there will be a Concert given at the University Chapel on to-morrow (Friday) eve? ning. From the programme, we safely conclude that the performances will be of that character to draw out a crowded house. Prof. Aichkl is known in this village as possessed of superior musical talent, while Prof. Rothschild is justly celebra? ted as a violinist. Let there be a full attendance of our citizens! Agricultural Society. We hail with peculiar pride and pleasure the ini? tiatory steps towards forming a District Agricultu? ral Society at this place. An intelligent planter lias begun the practical work, by soliciting sub? scriptions to purchase grounds and improve them. He has been successful to a great degree, and met with cordial encouragement and assistance from many of. our first citizens. A meeting is called in this paper to organize tho Society on salcday next. ^Evcry farmer is interested?our villagers are cither directly or indirectly to be bencfittcd. Then give the move an encouraging lift, and success awaits the Anderson District Agricultural Society. -+ Our Delegation. The Yorkville Enquirer, in an editorial glance at I the m?iub_crs of the Legislature rccl<u7ry^c1rtr?i!n7 speaks in the following complimentary terms of the Anderson delegation: " Mr. Haync is a son of the Hon. Robert Y. Hayne, a name very familiar to the heart of South Carolina. Hitherto a quiet, unpretending planter, he nevertheless -has the .olden time "Pre in his eye," and Anderson District'should be congratula latcd upon Iiis entrance into public life. It is suf? ficient to say that Mr. Mnttison heads the list. Mr. Moore is peculiarly ours. Wc have had with him, while in editorial harness, more than one "rough and tumble," and with variable fortunes. He will consider us as giving to him, on this occasion, a most cordial shake of the hand. Mr. Whitncr is one of the sons of tho Judge?a worthy " chip of the block." Hon. W. L. Yancey. We publish on the fourth page an interesting sketch of this gentleman, who has occupied so prominent a place in the important political movements du? ring the past few months. The sketch was written two years ago, and is evidently from the pen of W. F. Samford, Esq., a distinguished citizen of Ala? bama. He justly characterizes his subject ?9 "tho tribuno of the people." The esteemed friend who contributes to our col? umns, and whose articles arc designated witli an asterisk, does not, we think rightly appreciate Mr. Yan'Cet. Before seeing and hearing Alabama's favorite sort, We were in no wise favorable to him as a leader, but having tho privilege of being an 'eye witness to his course in the Charleston Conven? tion, done away with all prejudice We might have entertained towards him prior to tiiat time. The South owes Yancey a debt of gratitude for his fearless and masterly vindication of her rights, and the day will come when due reward will be given therefor. -*.-. " YouHg Men ! Your Country Cilia Ytra ! " There has originated in the past few weeks nn organization nil over the Southern States under the i style of " Minute Men," having for its object the maintenance of Southern equality and the defence I of Southern rights, "in the Union or out of it." i The objects for which these companies arc now j forming must touch the patriotism of every lover of his section, and cause his heart to beat with fresh impulses at the thought of defending in per? son the homes and firesides where reside mother, sister, wife or daughter. Hundreds and thousands are flocking within its folds, and the organization now numbers many " good men and true " in all the Southern States. In South Carolina alone, there are near five thousand from all accounts we have seen, and daily arc accessions being made to its ranks. But it is not confincu to the gallant, brave Palmetto sons.. Every State has its quota pledged to resistance?bound to march at a mo? ment's warming to the defence of their beloved country. Let the ball thus put in motion roll on unceasingly, until there is an army composed1 of chivalrous Southrons who are competent and pre? pared to meet the " Wide Awakes-" and their ?o workers, and vanquish them- on the battle-field, if necessary. We have been permitted to examine the constitu? tion which meets adoption by every company of "Minute Men." It is short and comprehensive, and full of meaning. Under it, we learn, that up? wards of seventy-five gentlemen have enrolled themselves at Pendleton. The badge, blue rosette, ie not seen upon the* streets' of our own town, but we know of many.here who regard themselves as " Minute Men," prepared to act promptly upon their country's call. It is expected that they will organize under that name at on early day. -?? Mr. Blackstock, a Baptisjlpreaclier . in Buchanan, Haralson county, Ga., was killed by a man named ' Philpot on the 1st hist. j j, Maj. ii. F. Jerry's 8pee<aV* We have in several articles heret?fc\c.revicwcd the policy of tho distinguished genhenan whose lntq_epeech appeared in our last issue, tfis views contained in this last effort do-not differ fr\m those promuled by Iii? in letter form," and wKch we have also published. In considering some\f the facts and positions laid down by him, we shal ne? cessarily be brief. V The first few paragraphs of his speech contan a statement of this political excitements which Ins agitated and threatened disunion in times past. W^ pass from these statements, allowing them all the> weight necessary to give his coloring force, and come to his enumeration of policy in regard to the Presidential election. He differs with those who say that Lincoln will be elected, and that disunion must follow. He does not " believe a word of it," and states thai, the fusion in New York will pre? vent the succens of Lincoln. Also, the hope was entertained by him that other States would decide the same way; but the late elections in those States mentioned shew that in neither can the opposition ! to the Black Republicans prevail. And wc con I ceive that even Maj. P. is now convinced that it is ( next to impossibility to defeat Lincoln, even with the boasted fusion in New York. The chain, there? fore, upon which he hinges this faint hope is utter? ly worthless. The election of "Old Abe" is al? most a foregone conclusion, and wc must prepare to resist or submit to his rule for the next four years ; and in case of submission, to continue, in our opinion, in n state of subjugation and impoverish? ment for all time to come. Maj. Perry think? vastly different. He entertains no fears for the institution of slavery, which is-tho issue in point. He denies tlio avowed and settled policy set forth by Lincoln himself and all the Black Republican leaders. Their purpose in regard to slavery in the States in distinct and abundantly explicit. They claim tho right to utter their sentiments, and pro? nounce their dogmas in our very midst. They in? tend to use the government in all its departments 'to accomplish their ends, and, as is stated in a re? cent letter of Soames, Black Republican Congress? man from Maine, urging radical abolitionists to vote for Lincoln, they expect to bring about " ulti? mate emancipation in the slave Slates by the intro? duction! 0/ free speech and a free press." To this we readily scsnt the " pooh ! nonsense?they never can do it," pronounced by Unionists of the Perry stamp. V c grant that it is true, too, for Southern blood will never submit, to such outrage; but when they have begun the consummation of their designs, with the executive, legislative and Judicial power in their hands, will we be better prepared to resist than at the present time ? No, and many of those who- counsel submission now would be found, wc fear, maintaining the right of " free speech " then, even if it amounts to dissemination of moderate ab? olition sentiment. Once pave the way for tins' and it will speedily result in teaching and pracr cally carrying out the doctrine of inciting slaves*0 throw off their bondage, at the endangermen'of the lives of masters. Fur be it from us to intimate that those who agree with Maj. P. would u/hold this course of things, but we honestly bcli/ve that tho pursuance of a submission policy at ,u\i time will eventually result in this manner. It is our firm conviction, and the view wc have nken-or-ft since wc first turned our thoughts upm'dic sub? ject. It would be cowardly not to crtmsel and take part in resistance, holding these vews. ^Bj^.aayr-Mtrjr'Perry, the Black Republicans arc widely separated from the abolitit?sts. They arc distinct and different parties. The Lincoln crew arc not in favor of interfering with slavery where it exists, and arc only nsiij the slavery question as an instrument to obtnu power and place. Docs the gentleman forget tH " irrepressi? ble conflict," the paternity of whicl lies between Old Abe and William H. Seward? Doos he forgot the practical working of that conflit, which means war to the knife, and which was illy exemplified in design, at least, by Ossowatimh Brown and his followers, and since then, in the ?st few months, all over the Southern States, to- greater or less extent? Is his memory so limiftd that he cannot recollect the burst of indginatiQ which went up from all quarters last winter, aid in which he un? wittingly joined, when the raid at Harper's Ferry was committed ? Interference with slavery where it exists is their purpose, nlthoigh remote may be their designs, and wc arc surpiscd that any gen? tleman of enlarged intelligcncand extensive read? ing, like Maj. P., should sect to deny the record and doubt the pledges anil avowals of Lincoln, Seward, and so forth. The ultimate tendency of these leaders will result in attempted abolition, the means employed will bclo incite slaves to re? bellion, murder, rapine am all the horrors that the devil and his minions an invent. They may care not a fig for slavery, i? Mty. Perry asserts, but they have built tip a jirty, Northern and sec? tional, upon the basis of encroachment upon the " peculiar institution," aid after obtaining control of the Government, theywill likely strengthen that party in every way posiblc. The monster they have created, like the /host of Bnnquo, "will not doWn at their hiddinj," and if disposed to stay its ravaging and dcsWctivc powers, they will only be crushed beneath.ho wheels they have set in mo-ion. It is further assctcd that, the bare election of it Black Republican 8 not sufficient cause to brea e up the govcrnmcn. In one sense, we admit the statement as true. But when the result will inevi? tably follow that he section to which wc belong will be placed iu a hopeless condition and meet with nothing saie oppression and insult, we raise the cry of resistance, and will offer our counsel, feeble though it be, for revolution itself in prefer? ence to what wc beiieve is abject submission and arrant disgrace. What did our ancestors light against? Not because of the galling tyranny that afterwards was attempted, but rather that they foresaw the oppressive heel of the miscreant upon their necks ? Thus it might be said, ignoring the history of Northern aggression, is the case with Southern people at the present day. Yet, in sum? ming up causes for resistance and disunion, we cannot altogether forget the base frauds and con? stant aggressive policy designed by Northern men during the last thirty years, and which the South, with forgiving spirit, now seeks to erase from memory should her equal rights be recognized at this late day. She is striving to obtain them?en? gaged in the last struggle, and some are found tvho would supinely resign them and submit to the in anguration of measures and policy which tend to weaken her cause and eventuate in her total ruin and degradation. Of this latter class, Maj. P. and his followers in South Carolina are an example. -? Gen. Duff Green has written a long appetd to the people of the slaveholding States, in the course of which he says ; " As to the institution of slavery, the march of science and the progress of events arc rapidly de? monstrating that it is a necessity resulting from the nature and condition of man, and to the whole people of this country "one of the chief sources of their welfare and prosperity." -o?

Editors: Perhaps ^nt no period of Jj? world's exietcheo has there becu such a^iverj?! of mattetjifor reflection and discussion ns^now, and never.was there such an array of disputants^frno are ready to wield the tongue or pen, as occasion may require, and no objection could bo urged to such a state of things were the subjects of discus? sion such ta arc calculated to benefit mankind, or redound to the good of nations ;' but unfortunate? ly so versatile is the talent of our land, so fertile is now the brain of man, that in casting about for new matter for reflection, he has let loose upo1 ?ciety a hetexogeucous. mass of ists anaMsDS. wilch, uricombatted, would sink our race inW a degradation, in comparison with which, the sa^gc life of our primeval forests would bo a paraHsc. ThcscVc lections are caused by'the state of fffairs that noV exist throughout our common cou^ry. I well remember the time when the a'cti<n of the abolitionists of the North, and the conseq?ent talk of scccitsioi at tho South, would both lave been pronounccd\rcason towards each other, treason to the whole country; aye, and treasop against the God wl'o had so signally assisted to tftablish this government; bu\ now, those two streets arc kept prominently before the respective sections. Why is this '.' Has there arisen any necessity for the interference of the North with an institution that has been eoutinually growingheitcr for both mas? ter ami slave ever since the eawblishmcnt of our present government? No nwh who understands the subject will pretend tlat/uch is tho case. We need not follow up the reading. It is sufficient for our purpose, at proscfc'to know, that such a state of things will soorj^kt l? drive the South in defence, of not onlyh'cr slaves, but of her very existence as sovereign States; therefore, this only question that nowif<rt* paramount significance to the Southern man V how shall' the separation be effected? and i/'Oes appear to me, that more gas is expended, aiu morc nonsense enunciated npou this subject, thn UP?? &ny other that has ever oc? cupied the pu'lic niiud. Scarcely h4 'he idea of secession taken root up? on Souther soil in 1S30 and '51, when some un? bounded f ntos discovered that it had to be effect ted by cr?Pcra,wn > that is, by a union of several or all o't?e slave States ; and strangoj^as it may appear 'his absurd idea has held its sway over the SoulK01"ten years. There is no such thing as co.cerat ion in secession. It can only bo effected hy ispdratc State action. If the States arc sover in their capacity of-States, then they had the nh1 to form the union, and although"nt> provision v*s inserted in the Constitution for a breaking up ? that union, yet the States hold that rifjlit by rirtuc of. their sovereignty, .whenever the .coaip.u! should be violated.by any number of the partners to the contract. The only question, then, that is of much significance at this time is, have [he arti? cles of agreement, or an}- of them; been violated or broken by any of the contracting parties? Most assuredly they have. Whcu this Confederation wai formed, most, of the States then held slaves, and I.have no doubt would have held thjcra yet, if the insfitutiou could have been madd^tp pay : but as it did nof.'^slavcry was- abolished in all shell: and in a few years the inhabitants of'those States discovered tliat they had got rid of an enormous sin. What unheard of sagacity. I h.vc no doubt but (hey had committed almost'any amount of sin. I have becu informed by pcrsois who were cognizant of facts as slavery then- apod in those States, that the most horrid cruelti? were then and there practiced by the ancestors of these vile hypocrites who now assail um, that they might if possiblo extort a fortune from two ex three staves. But lias the compact of the Statcsicen violated ? 'Ihc South has steadily adhered ti nit that she agreed to perform, uifd has since, fc the sake of peace, made compromise after conpromise, until these self-shriven ex-slavcholdcrs |iave come to the conclusion that they arc the Uiilqd Sfates. nnd Jiave assailed us in every c?nceifablo manner. Tlicy repudiate the Constitution, ad are really the only disunionistsof this country, pej incite our slaves to servile insurrection, an destroy our property in every conccivuble manor. They do l ny us the right to enter the comma territory with our property, while that territoryras fttaiitly paid for by the blocd and treasure of tjc South. In a wor.d,^thcy would throw all tlicburdcns of the compact upon the South, whilcithcy alone arc competent to take care of its iniunitics. The compact not violated, eh ? It Js been violated for years, and the South has bone with it until forbearance has long ceased ^to'C a virtue, and secession is now tiic only remly left, and will have to be resorted to soon, if li upon the elec? tion of Lincoln to the Prcsfcncy. Secession, then, being tlie lost resort, it i,tst be performed by separate State action?one State, upon the rights of her own individual soiteignty, declaring the compact at an end, so far ashc is concerned, and then may come up tho idcrof co-operation: a co-operation of the seceded St?s against a com? mon enemy. The ncrc clcct/u of Lincoln will not be a fundamental ground n- secession, for he will no doubt be cor?titutionaly e'ected ; but that election will say to is that theconpact will still be violated, and to i greater exen than ever; and having ground ahWy for suci ncoursc, there is no propriety in wtitiig to see h<v much morc we shall be reviled audiramplcd upa. Then let se? cession be the remc/y, but as wcvaluc all we hold dear, let not such rau as Yanccyllowell Cobb and Sam Houston be ojr leaders. * j Selectafer the Intclltcnccr.
