New Penitentiary.
This subject la again before the Legislature
It seems that the number of convicts now ex
ceeds the estimate of the commissioners, as
stated in their last year's report, and upon which
they decided that a new Penitentiary was "abso
lutely ' indispensable. At tne loaen raiee oi
average annual increase, for twenty-five years,
upon wnicn ttiey Dasea meir calculation, me
number in 1864 would be 1478 This estimate
has mora than been sustained by the result. On
the basis of the annual increase of counties lor
the Drey ions nine tears, during which, rail
roads and telegraphs, by furnishing fscilities of
deteetion, greatly increase tne raito, tne num
ber la 1SC4 would be 1874. If we take the av
erase Of these estimates, 1676 will be tha num
ber of convict In 1664 on either estimate.
Tba tieceeaity of Immediately commencing a
new Penitentiary seems imperative upon the
Legislature,' tad we hope that tbe prevading
excinment on national affairs will not prevent
their discharge of a duty so indispensable to
the safety and interests of tbeir constituents.
' We copy the above from the Journtl of this
morning, and concur with it in the opinion that
the Legislature should, before its adjournment
provide for the erection of a new State prison
at some elligible point In the State. 1 no pre
sent prison has at thia lima, in our opinion, more
convict than oan be profitably employed at one
place, and indeed mora than la warranted by
prudence, to be confined in one prison. Anew
prison could not be erected and prepared for the
occupancy of convict one moment to sooo, if sn
sppropriation were mad for it immediately.

TUESDAY, January 29, 1861.
Mr. GASFXSLD "sild that' ths fiebita had
taken so wide a ranae that he felt.lt right at
tills time to submit bis views upon the whole
question of tha Commission and Its purpose.
There are some Senators who seem to assume
by their manner and bearing a certain prescrip
tive right to all patriotic and unpartisan motives
There ia a manner of cmphatlo ' statement,
which Is Intended, doubtless, to Inspire awe,
suoh as a certain seed lady, who wept profusely
at what she oalled tha holy wag of the minis
ter' head. Wa meet hero as peers: and he
granted no suoh assumed superiority of any Sen
ator. - :
Ha adverted to the abuse of the word compro
mise. Senators tell ua that government, all
law. all neace. rest noon compromise that by
oomnromlae God admit man to the loy of
Heaven. If by compromiser is msant tha sub
mission of the minority to tha majority, then,
said tho zpsike,, Its a waproaiUrj If by it
Is meant a yielding up of our peculiar notions
of expedlenoy or modes of notion, then am a
oompromlaert if by It is meant to grant all the
rights and guarantees to our Southern brethren
which tb Constitution afford them or
comltv reaalrea. them I am compromiser. But
if by it It meant that a man doing what be be
lieve to do true renounce ma political or ren-c-lous
faith ignore tbe best impulses of his
heart then is compromise a cheat a de
lusion a lis. In this latter sense there
had been' compromises in the legislation
of tba general government, and In every
case tbev had been productive of tremendous
evil. There bad been three chapter in the
history of compromise since the Constitution
waa adonted. The first was In 1819-20. The
question was Shall there be slavery In Mis
souri! Tbe Soutb threatened disunion it tneir
reauest wers not granted. And so, good, but
mlstsktn men, let tba curse be bo extended to
save tbe Union. Thcro followed peace but it
was a treacherous peaoe. Tbe second struggle
was ' 1832. South Carolina said : 1 will nullify
the Federal laws and If you dare to binder ma
I will disaolv the Union. Only one State ex
pressed sympathy with her. Disunion was but
a snark which could have been easily extinguish
ed. Jackson bsd lifted his hsnd to quench it
forever, when the cry of dissolution alarmed
that good man Henry Clay, and be came for
ward with Compromise. Carolina went out from
that conflict a boastful victor. The Union was
humbled. It had received the most fatal blow
that waa ever civen it.
Tbe third compromise of 1650-1 was a repe
tition of the same humiliation, and now we are
oalled upon to take another atep In thia degrad
lne process. And for whatT For having legal
ly elected to the Presidency the man of our
cboico. This course of compromise has demor
alized and broken up both the Whig and Dem
ocratic parties, and has debased the principles of
those men who bave engaged In it. These gen
tlemen who boast that they Ihave sunk the
partisan In the patriot, may yet find that they
have sunk the man in tbe compromiser. It is
becoming almost heritical in tbe eyes of those
patriot for a man on this floor to show the doc
wines announced by the 3,850,000 freeman who
voted lor Abraham Lincoln. And I now remind
these patriots of the fact that the vast majority
ot tbeee men are utterly and forever- opposed
to the advance or slavery into tbe terri
tories now free. Any compromise which prom'
isee to do tbis will be only a bollow truce;
treacherous compact, which the people will aev
er obey. Oblo, be was proud to say, bad re
solved to absolve herself from all wrong to her
sisters, and then she would cling to tbe Consti
tution as it is, and share its fate. ' It is now high
time to decide whether wa have a government
or not. If this union is no Union tbis nation
no nation, lot ua know it at once, and see its
fragments dash away In promlscous wreck. Let
us then, if we appoint commissioners at all, ap
point those who represent tbe principle of which
the South complain. But let as tell them the
whola truth that wa bate alavery as wa bate
tha catee of hell. And though we will never in
terfere with it in the State where it exists, we
will not submit to tha tyrannical demands of
tho whose motto "it ia to rale or tula tbeir
oountry.' - '
Mr. MOORE said that tha Constitution was
a compromise. Tha gentleman should bave
paid hi compliment to tb father of the Con
stitution, i b question tnen was unioo or de
struction, and it is now tbe question, and tbe
fathers, for the benefit of anion, framed the
Constitution : which bat a compromise
Tbs aria men who framed this - Con
stitution thought it was better to have un
ion with some or its en is then to ba without
tbe Union. '8e we think now. Let us make
another effort to- compromise. Let us appoint

8tata north and south New Hampshire, Mas

Virginia favor compromise to day, when abe
opposed it thenT It is to ba hoped tbe gentle
man from Butler will not -misquote Madison
again oa thia subject. But he( Mr. P.)admttted,
while ka regretted it, there waa a compromise
In the Constitution. It ka proved a festering
sore. It baa increased, until it now requires
mora skill to heal it than ever before.
Mr. HARRISON If tha oompromi of 1820
had not been disturbed, would w have now been
troubled with this question.
Mr. PARISH Tbe gentleman can answer
that ss wall as L But if that compromise bad
not bean mad, tha current would have set
against slavery, instead of setting in it favor.
Had it not been made, tbara would not In his
opinion have been ooa vestigs of slavery in the
country to-day. Now, wa know that whenever
tbe slaveholder have desired to compromise
upon slavery, they have always invoked the
spirit of tha oompromi, and perpetually they
have ever received the advantages which ben
efited alavery, and liberty has thereby lost
ground. He waa opposed to farther compro
mise, Because au aompromtM are mere ooo
eeasions to alavery. When tbis proposition
to appoint com mi si I oners waa made, be was
opposed lo it. But b might now yield
hi vi to r tb - msjority, because
there seems to prevail an idea . that some
good may flow from it. He preyed God good

to "guarantee tb right of slaveholders."
They invite all States tbatarewilliDg to do tbis,

It waa carefully axpeaeeed. . Why waa this in

When Virginia meet oa in conference she will

WniaBAS, Tha Commonwealth of Virgin!
baa appointed five Commissioners to meat in the

States, and after a full aud free conference, to

the unhappy difficulties., now dividing our ooun

Rttohed, by the Otner tl Anemblv tf Ohio,
That fire commissioners be elected by a Joint

to meet to iommisaiuoera. appointed by tbe
Commonwealth of Virginia and our titter States,

Virginia, and are fully eatUCcd thut tbo Con
stitution of tbe United States aa it ii, if fairly
interpreted, and obeyed by all sections of our
country, oontains ample provision within itself,
for the correction of all evils complained of,
yet a disposition to reciprocate the patriotic spir

moniously adjusted, all difference between us,
Induces us to favor tbe appointment of the com
missioners, ss requested.
Jfesolsea, That the Gorernor b requested to

Mr. STANLY said, they bava a "higher
law" in tbe Soutb. It oonalsta in inquiring into
the private business and opinions of Northern
men doing business in the Sooth, and if their
opinions do not suit them, said visitors are grant
ed leave of absence, and are sometime helped
away in a manner not Tery pleasant. Ho alluded
to the proscriptions of tbe press, and
denounced them aa being contrary to the spirit
of the Constitution, and thought the North
should demand a little concession oo the part of
the South. .. . - , , , , ,.-,.. ;
Mr. KEY aked the Senator wbat course he
would propose for saving ths Union.
i Mr. STANLY I would recommend the
course pursued .by .Genoral Jackson; I woold
enforco tbe laws. Ohio has dona do wrong,
and should make no sacrifices. He did not
know, however, but States should be permitted
to secede peaceably. However, he thought Ike
bast way to preserve ttb Union was to rigidly
enforce tbe laws of the country. - Tbe whole
difficulty originated lo the election of Lincoln,
and nortneru JJemoorau are lending aid and
comfort to tbe enemies of the country, by the
course toey. are purisiog.. ue aetended tbe
Republican party against the cbargenf favoring
"oegroequality,'? ice. . ,
Mr. STANLEY said the controversy Is in re
ality between the decision of the people oo the
sixth of November spd tbe Southern pro-slav
ery I tes, lie alluded' to tbe division of the
democrat lo tbe Charleston and Baltimore Con
ventions, and said that mora than three fourths
of, tbe people of the United States had deolded
sgainst a slave code for the territories, and yet
this waa the issus that was lo destroy the Union.
He doubted very much whether any good would
result from this commission, or whether the in
vitation was extended In a fraternal feeling.
Wa are asked to extend slavery Into territory,
ana esuonsn n py uw, sod evea to make Ohio
a highway lor the droves of chained slaves to
travel over, and ha waa not willing to take back
bis sentiments, or.hls votes In opposition to both
of these principles. Certain Senators, he understood,-
were willing to aocede to these prop
ositions, humiliating as they are. He never
could, . Jlesaid that it had bsen charged oo this
flsorthat Ohio had been guilty of nullification,
and that, too, in a mora cowardly manner than
the nullification of Mississippi,- "

like to vote lor it-? ue bad moved to re
commit Itha two report yesterday that they
might agree, liut tne committee bad not
agreed as he expected. . They had gone fur
ther from bis views tban be baa expeotcd. He
did not for s, -moinout suppose tho committee
would change the mode of appointing tbe com
mission. Excentlng thia roint he accepted the
balance of the report most cordially. He still
was uncertain how he should vote. He slnoere-
y desired however to vote for tha report. He
then issved to 'amend to strike Cut tha first

Monroe proceeded to commend the high char'
actor of the Uovernor, and demonstrate the
propriety of anmcrlng this appointing power up
on blot, n ue s eiuo" tuougnt ,- tne exercise
olY the power on K the part , "of the
General Assembly Is the exercise at least a
doubtful constitutional power, and it is accepted
ai a maxim that the Legislature ouibt not to
exorcise doubtful powers. The decisions of the
Supreme Court would Indicate that the Legis
lature ha oo right to eieroieo this power.
Ho was opposed also to exolude any department
of the Government from the business of making
these appointments. He would line to bave all
departments and alt interests represented in a
fraternal spirit, bat it doss Dot seem feasible to
inelude all departments of the State, constitu
tionally and legally to do this. In such a mat
ter as Ibis he was bound by no prfjudloes, but
earnestly desired that everything possible should
be done to sootho the distractions of the country.;
Mr. HAKKISUN did. not propose to prolong
thia discussion." Were it not that I desire the
Senate to understsnd why a portion of the Com
mittee came to this agreement, 1 should say
nothiug The truth is, the country is so dis
tracted that we should bs acting instead of
speaking. If this Legislature does rmt act in

themselves in Convention and do it. 1 speak

ate controversy between the two Houses con
cerning tht-mode 'ot appointing. 1 'revised
my views and consented mat tne uorernor
should make the appointments, but sinoe
then the House has appointed them by the
General -Assembly. Vv Believing immediate
aotion vital, and believing tha - House would
waive its action, 1 agreed to tbe report before
ua. - Now 1 believe if we should fail to make
these appointments I think It woold be a shame
to tbe state. 1 am willing to ssennce almost
any prelerence, and am not particular who ex
ercises the appointing power.:. 1 would nave
the members ot tho Legislature waive, tnei
party prejudices and ' act like patriots, so that
these Commissioners than goto wasbinctoi
and do all in their power lo settle the distrac
tions of tbe country. , t .1 ! i j ' -
Mr. MONROE said 'the Question of delay
had two sides, whether thn appointment by
Joint Convention, or by the Governor would be
most speedy. He thought if early action is
beat, the latter woold be found best.
Mr. PARRISH explained why, as a member
of the Committee ho had wavied bis obleotions,
as expressed yesterday. Reflection hail settled his
convictions, and good faith required of him
oppose tbe amendment or Mr. Modtoo. Tbe
mode of appointment is a question of expediency
It seems in harmony with .tb spirit of the Dew
