R F.ED A CO. ft jested Communication, not retnraed, nnlesa by Etiquette in Public Meetings. A communication in another column calls upon our cotPmpornry of th Enquirer to jrrfat and publish a "Code of Etiquette,'' o be f ed bj- people wbo attend pnblic meet ings, teaching them ubat sentiments, und b ben to applaud. The idea is a pood one, w ftw will deny to our cotemporary aa ele gance and finish tlint admirably qualifies Lira Tor fuch an undertaking. When tha notk makes its appearance, we intend to fut outfelvcs through a course of twining, accotdirg to ifs directions. A Coup d'Abortion. It was rumored, last evening, that a sort cf fttb'e attempt hud been md! to get up a special meeting of the City Council, to be composed only of members of the right Slrij-e, to pass resolutions in favor of the Crittenden Compromise. The plan, we have bctn informed, niiicarried ; but another cf foitwil! probably be made in time to snve the country. Truly, this is a day when very body should be passing resolutions as fast a possible Prayer and fasting have txtn tried, and, for the credit of Divine rrovidence, we grieve to say, have utterly failed to So the business. Something mu.it be done ; and if resolutions the effectual Bid ftrveut resolutions ol a few favored i) nines of our municipal legislature will not do it, there's little use in holding on any longer. Like the Southern Senators poor mourners we must, forever, despair for tie Republic. Pickens and Stealings. It is known that South Carolina laid the light-fingered hand of her independent sov ereignty on the United States Sub-Treasury, at Charleston, and seceded it as they call Stealing down there. Governor Pickens, who bod a balance due liim of about $3,000 on salary as Minister to Russia, sent his account lately to the Depart ment at Washington, when the President in structed the Secretary of the Treasury to pay him off by a draft on the Sub-Treasury at Charleston. Great occasions develop great men. Who ever before suspected Mr. Buchanau of being a joker ? This is worthy of Joe Miller. We can imagine how Got. Pickens looked w hen he got that draft on the South Carolina 'loot" for his pay. Doubtless the Southern heart was fired more than ever. It is clear that the South Carolina revolution was pre maturely precipitated, or Got. Pickens would never have left that balance in the band of the enemy. Perhaps this is the cans of bis pacific overtures to the Govern ment. He wants to square op that balance, before the State goes clear out of the Union, just as the South Carolina members of Con gress returned to the Union, after they were quite out of sight, to secure their little bal ances of Congressional stationaey. Glo rious, chivalrous, skinflinty empire! Soreness of the Commercial on Circulation. The Commercial talks of a " letter-list con troversy" in the newspapors. There is tone. The letter list was awarded to the Duly Pnsss on sworn evidence of the largest circulation within the district where the law requires evidence of circulation, and vhere only legal evidence of circulation can be taken. The Commercial does not dispute the award or the fact; nor does any other paper. Therefore there is no letter-list con troversy. The Commercial, however, is publishing Statements of its circulation outside the limits where legal evidence could be taken. That it has a right to do. It is customary for newspapers to make favorable represent ations of their circulation. We published the CommtrciaTi as an advertisement, and will be glad to do it again for the same con sideration. But no paper has yet thought it worth while to question it. So there is no controversy about that. Newspaper men understand these things. The most brilliant bubbles of circulation are often pricked by the test of the letter-list award. The Commercial mentions what it culls a sworn statement to the Postmaster of the total circulation of the Commercial In all places. The poetoffice law requires no such statement. It would be wholly impertinent. Legal evidence can only be made of the cir culation within the postoSice delivery. That the Postmaster decided to be within the corporate limits of the city. Any other evidence had no more bearing on the case than if the Commercial had Bworn to the cir culation of the Dollar Commercial, or to the number of cylinders in its press. We need not. inform those who know any thing of tha rules of evidence, that oaths or affidavits taken outside the legal rules, in any else, are no oaths or affidavits at all. They involve no penalty, and are therefore Simple statements, and to be judged as all other newspaper statements of circulation. The Commercial claims to have a large cir culation. We give it joy therefor. It claims to have s greater aggregate circulation than the Daily Pbkss. As far as the legal evi dence goes, it has not so great. Its published Statement shows an increase of 2,033 in the five days next after its sworn statement to the Postmaster. It is a very handsome in crease for a paper of limited circulation ; and this difference is calculated to make its sworn statements item excessively moderate. The Commercial talks of S sworn statement Cf the Daily Prim of its circulation outside the city. We have shown that the law S bows no such statement, and that the Post- mtfitir could sot require any. He has no business with any such statements in his cfiict; eBd the Commercial, therefore, charges by implication that the Postmaster has gone outside the province of his official duty, be used tor aa illegitimate purpose. The Commercial' $ evident soreness over the award of the letter list, disarms such an im plication of its force, even if it could other wise have had aay. If we thought the play worth the candle, to go into sn exhibit of circulation outside that established by legal evidence, we might how some curious comparisons with the tVmaifrciol and that, too, without spread ing a statement over a vast surface, but tn towns where the ihowinir can be eaailv veri fied by the curious. VS e may pay a little aiifotifo to tnis ui snotner article. '- i A Few Thoughts Pertinent to the Times. It is time for men to begin to think and speak cf the political condition of the coun j try, and the relations which they bear to it, as it deserve?. It is time that the silly twad- die about concession, and conciliation, and compromise, and additional normern guar antits had come to an end. If the people of the North have any manhood, it is time to show it to look it, and to talk it, and upon suitable occasions to act it. The question is becoming pertinent whether we, the people of the Northern half of what was the United States, hare any moral courage, any just notions of our own dignity, any dis tinctive qualities such as are necessary to constitute us legitimate social elements; or whether we are only an accidental combina tion of the material for concessions and com promises. This is a point which, before the country can arrive at a state of permanent tranquillity, it will be necessary, practically, to settle; and the sooner it shall be done, the better it will be for all parties. The strength of the South is in the weak ness of the North. Southern agitators know, ar.d knew from the beginning, that in re spect to all the material elements of power, we are tastly their superiors; but i5y counted with confidence upon our want of courage and sagacity to use these advantages; and thus fur, it would seem, they counted correctly. Whatever the real sentiments of the renl people may be, the sentiment spoken in their name by politicians and popular bodies, can, with a very few exceptions, be described by but one word: cowardly. Even Republicans gentlemen charged with Abo Hlionism, with enmity to tho South as their sole pnnciple and rulo of action seem to recognize the extent of Southern demands as the measure of Northern concessions. The question virtually is: Gentlemen of the South, what will jou have ? What will yon take to be pacified, and to unCro the South ern heart? The beacon Republican of Ohio, the mighty Tom Corwin, points tho way, and exhausts the resources of his magnifi cent penius in seeking for places to concede something. Congress, flooded with petitions to save the Uuion at any price, seems most solicitous to learn what there is in its power to give ; and the great statesman of the Em pire State the Premier-apparent of the com ing Administration generalizes, and shrouds his opinions in sentences that are almost oracularly obscure. There ore complaints of the poverty of spirit the treachery of Mr. Buchanan, in leaving the fortresses unguarded and the na tional property exposed ; bnt in what respect is the conduct of Mr. Buchanan more than a practical exemplification of the sentiments expressed and the spirit manifested by great bodies of wealthy and respectable merchants of New York and Philadelphia? If these merchants were ready to go down in the dirt before the majesty of the South, why should he not also show proper respect to its de mands ? If they thought it no wrong to com promise away the principles of the Constitu tion and their own rights as citizens of the United States, why should he trouble him self about a few items of national property ? If the merchants of New York' and Phila delphia were right, Mr. Buchanan was right ; If all had been given which they were mani festly willing to surrender, the rest is nardly worth the trouble of looking after. Historians agree that the capital error of Louis XVI, ot France the result of which was the loss of his head, and the overthrow of his government was in yielding to the demands of a populace in a state of insurrec tion. The wisdom of all ages has taught that before the time to talk of concession or conciliation can arrive, arms must be laid down, and hostile demonstrations suspended. That our statesmen if such a thing exists in America have not learned this first les son of statesmanship, argues nothing for their sagacity. We may easily inaugurate the doctrine that eternal compromise is the price of the Union ; but when it is done, w but will the Union be worth, standing as it will on an inclined plane, with a perpetual tendency to slide? One compromise is the parent of another; and when compromise becomes the standing specific for Southern inflammation, Secession panics, like theagues of the Southern swamps, will enjoy a period ical recurrence. We have tried compromise once. The de mon of Secession was thought to be finally laid by the sagacity of the "Great Compro mise" of Kentucky, in 1833. We now see that he was only drugged into a temporary slumber, to break loose again with increased rampancy, at the first favorable opportunity. We are simply realizing the legitimate effect of the compromising proclivities of leading anti-Secession politicians of the nullification period. The weakness then, is the measure of the spirit of encroachment now. Had that controversy been settled upon sound principles, this one would not have arisen. The personal effect of the compromise of 1833, was to bar the way against its author to that lofty seat toward which, his eyes, for a whole life-long, had been directed. He gained a sounding but inconsistent title for no "Compromiser" is "Great" and lost his moral ascendancy. With the masses whose instiucy'.are truer than those of thepoliticians his name ceased to be a talisman; ana ne fell, when he thought he had within his grasp the object of his highest ambition. Yet the scene of 1833 was dignified by the talents and sincerity of the able, though mistaken men by whom it was enacted. It was the original drama with the original cast; and"as much superior in its aspect to the present repetition, as the real Don Gay- feros and MesaliixU were to the puppet thow in which their persoaa and adventures were poorly imitated. It is a rule of right all over the world, that they who Beek justice should do just ice the doing being a necessary condition to tho title to recover. The South demands of the North the repeal of unfriendly legis lation. Did it never occur to any body that, taking the history of the country from the beginning, the balance of unfriendly legislation is greatly upon the Southern side that ten statutes in Southern States owe their origin to enmity toward the North, to one in Northern States, owing its origin to enmity toward the South? It is true that through a difference in circum stances, the unfriendly Southern legislation has not been very potent to affect Northern interests; indeed, it has, in most cases, been designed to aggravate Northern feelings and inflame Northern prejudices. Abolitionism has been intensified by the passage of .tat utes apparently intended to add W the dis comforts of slavery. The confessed motive for the enactment of a great number of laws by Southern Legislatures, has been to Insult the people of the North, and to express in an official manner the contempt which the South entertains for the Northern J character: and it is scarcely more than a Jim sle. c the cntiie free colored fopu'atlon of two of the cotton States was thrown, by acts of their several Legislatuies presenting to btie the alternative of expatriation or tilt Into slavery at mid-winter, and many ot theia in estate of pitiablS destitution, ripen tlie shores ef Ohio, and the neighbor ing Northern States ruthlessly driven from thoir native homes and their possessions, not because they were unwholesome or danger ous citizens, but because their coming here would be a cause of Irritation and annoy acce. Looking at these facts, and the ques tion arises:. Which side has the best reason to complain of unfriendly legislation? Upon which rests the obligation to begin the work of repeal ? They who seek justice should do justice. The South demands so it is said additional Northern guarantees, for the protection of what? Its property; which some times makes use of its native powers of locomo tion to escape Into, or through the Northern States. Have we nothing to offset for these accidents no additional guarantees to ask ? A Southern roan may travel from the Ohio to the borders pf Canada, without risk even, of annoyance ; while in more than half the Slates of the South, the life of a man be lieved to be from the North, is every mo ment in danger. To be suspected of having Yotcd for Mr. Lincoln, Is good cause to sub ject a wayfarer through Southern territory to the violence of a mob, to murder or to expose him to tortures, in comparison to which death would be infinitely preferable We of the North have a high sense of na tional honor. A Prussian or an .Austrian comes to the United States, and declares his intention to become a citizen of that great and rising Republic, whose glorious stars and stripes are so noble a theme of inspired poetry and eloquent euloginm. He goes on a visit to his native land, and is there sum moned to the performance of some obliga tion from which be bad never been released by the government under which he was born. The news reaches the United States, and straightway the whole nation is in a fever of patriotism and philanthropy. Threats of exterminating war are freely in dulged in the public press is in" a Same. The Administration is besieged with exhorta tions to put on its fieriest aspect of demand and defiance. The diplomatic corps is set in motion; and every application of remon strance and intimidation is put at work to rescue our fellow-citizcu from the thraldom into which he entered with a full view of the consequences. These violent performances usually suggest contrasts that are instruct ive. A peaceful man of a Northern State is drawn by the exigencies of business, and in the belief that he is protected by the benign provisions of a common Constitution, into a Southern State : he is beset by men who find in the fact that he came from the North suffi cient gronnd under the pretense that he is an Abolitionist for making him the victim of the direst cruelties and indignities. Tar and feathers are the mildest regimen ; im prisonment, privation, confiscation of prop erty, and 500 lashes are moderate: naked and mutilated, he is either finished off at once by the halter, or bound hand and foot Is put into It canoe upon some river to sail away, and, if he survives, fall into the hands, of a new horde of tormentors. Is there any justice in store for these mur derers? Not that was ever heard of. They are esteemed as uselul and praiseworthy cit izens at home ; and as yet no Northern State has seen fit officially to signify its disap proval of the practice. For this omission for the absence of effectual measures to put an end to these inhuman deeds we of the North stand disgraced in the eyes of the world. We have not even protested. These details of the worst crimes that ever dis graced humanity, furnish for the day an item for our newspapers; and we fasten to forget the indignity and our own shame as soon as possible. We even coolly, and in a most lamb-like spirit, propose to give additional guarantees for our own good behavior. In Heaven's name, when is this imbecile trifling to come to an end. "Secessionis" so says the organ of in surrectionists "suspends all Northern debts, and war extinguishes them." So tender are we required to be of Southern property, and so liberal are they with ours. Millions of dollars in Northern property are virtually confiscated already; for even those who would vote against Secession do not hesitate to take advantage of this summary bank rupt law, and repudiate their obligations. The North owes the South nothing; the latter always being the debtor party. It is thus that the South holds the Northern soul in its grasp, and squeezes from it the cries that break from our great commercial marts for new guarantees. Guarantees for what? That we will submit and compromise and con cede and conciliate, until, having parted with our sense of right, our moral force and our claims to protection under the Constitution, we become fixed as subjects of a Southern oligarchy, and our boasted free and inde pendent States humble provinces of a South ern empire? The cry is ever for more. When we have once embarked in concession, the only natural end is in perfect submis sionthe only remedy in rebellion. It is time for the North also to begin to think of rebellion. Our Constitution we are told was made for freemen for citizens : that it will not answer for subjects for slaves. Let us look to it. It may be conserved upon such terms that it will not only be useless to us, but will serve as a testimonial that we were unworthy of it. Broken and subverted, and yet permitted to stand, it may become even an instrument for our enslavement as well as an enduring monument to our dis grace. The War Quailing for a Space. Tie war seems to have receded while. The South Carolinians, when they saw that their bubble bluster was about to be punctured by cannon balls, did not re quire so many men to hold them from fight ing. They appealed to negotiations, hold' ing that peace, to them, bath victories far greater than war ; and that the tree South Carolinian is ever mightier with the pen and the tongue, than the sword. The Star of the Wetl having returned a 1th the troops to New York, the Brooklyn had nothing to go in for, when she arrived off Charleston harbor; SO she will probably re turn, like tbe King of France, in that cele brated campaign. . . Itisprobublethatthiugswillremalnintfafu quo tot a while. If Mr. Buchanan's knees don't give outand there are several Secre taries manipulating them constantly the Government can be getting together a suit able expedition to re-enforce Fort Sumter, while the negotiation is going sn; and fins ice ad. the seu will probably eat up the South Carolina Army if they have to wait lore. , In the meantime, South Carolina and Georgia talk of sending off Commissioners t negotiate alliances with France and En gland. South Carolina never really re vol u tioaiVcd front ! England, and she always wanted to' get back into colonial de;end ency.' ' - . .... -. 1 The same tory spirit actuates her now as in 1776, when her Governor offered to sur render to the British, and abide the event of the war; and when most of her wealthy men addressed a memorial to the British Genera, expressing the same hatred of the Revolutionists that they do now of the North ern men. A local application of hemp to these Commissioners before they start would be an excellent preparation for their mission. South Carolina talks of Commissioning pirates to capture the California steamers and their treasure. The South Carolina idea of State independence is some thing like that of the Hibernian, of liberty in America: "No hanging for stealing." The wish is father to that thought. There will be a South Carolina hornpipe danced on a single string when any vessel of that stripe shows its nose outside. The Compromise of the Democratic Members of the Ohio Legislature. The Democratic members of the Ohio Leg islature, have, in caucus, adopted the com promise which was agreed upon by the com mittee of the Congressmen of the border States. Tbo propositions of this plan are mostly either settled by the Constitution, or unimportant. The only one that touches any question involved in the present troubles, is that in regard to slavery in the Territories, and that is ambiguous. It proposes to di vide the Territory by the line of 3G 30' ; prohibit Blavery north of it, and prehibif Congress and the Territorial Legislature from abolishing, prohibiting, or in any man ner interfering with slavery south of the line. This continues that "paltering in a double sense" which was introduced into tho Cin cinnati Platform. That resolved for "non interference" with Blavery in the Territories. It is notorious that the Democratic Party never agreed upon its meaning, and that the South .were exasperated by what they claimed to be a breach of iaith on the part of the Northern Democracy, in the interpreta tion of this term. This was the occasion of the Richmond Enquirer' keeping at the head of its columns the declaration, "No more double-faced Platforms." The South claimed, and justly too, that it declared only against action hostile to slavery, and therefore implied the duty to protect it. The Northern Democracy pre tended that it declared against any power of Congress to do any thing either for or against slavery; and they got the term twisted around into "non-intervention," the term which Douglas always used as the principle of the Cincinnati Platform, and which the mass of the party believe to be the one really used in that article. This is no time for double-faced phrases, especially for those whose disputed meaning has helped bring on the political disturbance. If the Democrats mean that slavery shall be protected in the Territories by the General Government and the Territorial Legislature, let them say so. If they will not grant this, as a concession to the South, let them say so, that the South may know what to depend upon. This is due to them ; and it is due to the Democratic Party in Ohio that its prop ositions for a compromise Bhall be put in plain, honest terms. ' Furthermore, why Bhould the Ohio De mocracy propose to exclude slavery north of this line? It is quite superfluous; and no considerable part of the Northern people ask it. That Territory will Inevitably be free, and why should an uncalled-for prohibition be put on a question already settled, to make material for future agitation. That prohi bition was very offensive to the South while it existed. It never affected the fate of slavery in the least. They repealed a com promise to which they conceded considera ble sanctity, to get rid of that which they regarded as wrong in principle, unconstitu tional, and an infriugoment on the equality of the States. To put it in the Constitution will greatly aggravate the evil. That instrument is now held to be sacred. Even the Secessionists profess to be seceding expressly to preserve its sanctity. It is so because its founders restricted it carefully to principles which were good for all time, leaving questions of policy to legislation. How long will that sanctity continue if things, which In legis lation have been condemned as wrong in principle, in violation of the equal rights of the States, and therefore unconstitutional and void, shall be put into the Constitution in order to fasten them upon the people beyond repeal ? Tke idea is monstrous. - It would thrust sectional legislation into the Constitution, and drag it into our party contests. Men would cease to respect it, or to be bound by it. We have a Constitution which all loyal men respectand which even rebels are com pelled to profess to hold sacred. Let us preserve it as it is, and leave party questions to the fate of parties. And above all, let us not attempt to canonize things, condemned as wrong in principle and sectional in prac tice, br cutting them In a sacred Consti tution. HOME INTEREST.
