Dsab Sib : Agreeably to your request of the 8th instant, you will find my views, in part, en the state of the country, as follows: South Carolina ia again in one of her politico-spasmodic convulsions; and, as on a former occasion, is prepared to leave the Union. Her Bepresentatives in- Congress say that she has already left the Union, and this, too, without any wrong or injustice having been done her people by the Gov ernment of the United State. Iler present eourse is not unlike that of 1832 and 1833, when she resolved, on account of the tariff, to nullify the laws of Congress; and, if re sisted, to separate herself from the Union. In this she was foiled by the energetic meas ures of the distinguished patriot, Andrew Jackson, then President. Although pre vented at the time from executing her in tentions, her leading spirit have never ceased to proclaim Secession, and a determi nation to leave the Union Whenever an' opportunity occurred to casry out the scheme engendered of forming a grand slave Confederacy, to be composed of the seceding States, the Island of Cuba, the States of Mexico and Central America, and to reopen the slave trade. All which have been refer red to in tbe recent speeches of Keitt, Rhott, Judge Magrath and others. In 1850, '61, '52, '53 and '64, efforts were made preparatory to the formation of this Slave confederacy, and General Quitman and Captain William Walker were to assist in its accomplishment. The first was to revolutionize Cuba, and the latter to conatter four or five of the States of Central Amer ica. From want of means and capacity to direct such enterprise, they both failed ; con sequently the scheme was postponed until a more favorable opportunity might occur for its execution, ho opportunity, however, occurred which would justify the attempt, until the raid of John Brown at Harper's Ferry, which furnished the requisite means to prepare tfie minds of the people to enrry into effect their long meditated de signs. The Disunionists in South Caro lina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi did not fail to avail themselves of an occurrence go favorable to their purposes. Every effort was made to excite the people of the South, with the most urgent appeals for immediate Secession from the Union. The universal condemnation, North and South, of Brown and his nefarious conduct, and the expressed determination to maintain the South in all their just and constitutional rights, stayed the Secession movement. Thus stood the question until the meeting of tbe Democratic Convention at Charleston, in I860. Apprehensive that Senator Doug las, who was presented by the Northern De mocracy, would be the nominee of the Con vention for President, the leading spirits of disu ion broke it up, and divided the members and tbe Democratic Party into two factions, each of which named its candidate for President. Tbe Secessionists, with a ma jority of the Southern members, nominated Vice-President Breckinridge, aud the mem bers of the North, with a few from tho South, nominated Senator Douglas. At the same time the Secessionists openly and publicly avowed their preference for Lincoln for President over Senator Douglas, although the latter had, beyond any other Senator, de fended on all occasions the rights and inter ests of the Sonth, and even to the extent of their peculiar views on the subject of elavery. , Under these circumstances, with the Democratic Party divided, no intelligent person could doubt that the Republican can didate would be elected. That such was tho design and intention of the disunionists when they broke up and divided the Convention, could not be ques tioned by any oua acquainted with their long meditated designs; and for no other purpose than to be used as a means to excite the people of the South, with the expecta tion of concentrating them in favor of their fraud slave confederacy. . As tney preferred Ir. Lincoln to Senator Douelas. who had always been the advocate of Southern views on the subject of slavery, what object could thev have bad in favoring his election but to use it as the only and "last opportunity" of accumpiujuiu me ueugn, previously en gendered, ot separating tbe cotton States from the free States. Their object was at tained. Abraham Lincoln was elected to be President by eighteen out of thirty-three Stales. No State in the Union received the announcement with more joy aud satisfac tion than South Carolina, and because it would, as proclaimed by her lcaders,insure the long-wished-for object a separation of tue state irom uie union. For the same reason, in thecity of Charles ton meetings were held to celebrate the event,, when the citizens manifested their feelings 'ia "loud, 'long aod continuous cheers." The State, in its legislative capacity. denounced and pronounced Mr. Lincoln's election as a sufficient cause for the State to secede from the Union. A greater outrage on the Constitution could not have been com mitted, nor a greater insult offered to a free people.- Treason and rebellion were rife against the Union, for no other reason, a manitestea, tuan tnat eignteen oat of thirty three States exercised their rightful and constitutional prerogative 'of voting,- for whom the people deemed most worthy and best fitted to fall the office of President. It was not, however, tbe true cause, but a means used under false colors to execute a scheme long before concocted, and with which was connected, pernaps, one ol tne most promin ent among tha reasons which first dictated Secession the reopeninor of the slave-trade. in order to obtain slave Tabor at greatly re duced prices. To which may now be aided the creat and growing power of the free over the slave States, by which South Carolina mignt lose ner controlling influence in tne councils of the nation. . The foregoing facts are presented in order to show tbe motives and causes which.have prompted South Carolina and her leaders to proclaim to the world her intention of sepa- rating irom tne union, wuicu no circum. stance whatever can justify. To advocate Secession is treasonable. Se- cession is revolution and civil war. If so great a curse should befall our country, it would not fail to call forth all the baser pas sions of the bnman heart) blood would now in torrents, followed by pestilence, famine and desolation and all because a majority of tbe Suites have elected, constitutionally, a person to be President, whom the Secession ists of South Carolina do net like. Because a majority of the people have exercised the highest and most precious right conferred by the Constitution, in casting their votes tor a person whom they considered best calculated to nuuuuiaier uie tuituro u& iuo utuu, mo onlv free government on tbe face of the globe is to be destroyed I This must not, aud will not. be permitted. We can not allow the only free govern ment tbe last hop of the oppressed of the world to be sacrificed because South Caro lina desires it. Where liberty dwells there is my country, was the declaration of the Illustrious Franklin, This principle is too strongly implanted in the hearts and minds of the people to be surrendered at dictation. Where ia tua man to be found. SO lost to tl principles wbiuh governed the Father of his Uountrv ana fits compatriots in arm, mat. will not gay, with the diltinguiahed patriot. tbe bero of New Orleans And raw Jackson "The Union must and shall be preserved peaceably if it can, but forcibly if it must ?" Torn-event civil war. it onlvreatrires a faith ful and energetic execution of the powers confer rod bv the Constitution aud the laws nf nntiirretaa Ilr a iuilicioul annlic&tion of the army and navy, the peace Of (he country, would be preserved. If a sufhclent force was placed in the har bor of Charleston to defend the fortifications and other public property, all would be sale and South Carolina would not make any further attempts at political suicide. She says she intends to leave the Union I That is impossible, without a reconstruction of the Constitution which binds the States together, or by revolution. Until one or the other occurs, she must remain a Territory of the United States. If kept within the limits of her State, beine tho nead and front of the Secessionists, it will keep other States from Seceding. It will not be necessary to invade the State or to make war upon the people. Nothing is" required but to occupy tbe forts and harbors with a force sufficient to defend them. It is suggested that the Constitution oncrht to be so amended as to conform to the views and wishes of the South. The Constitution needs no amendment. All the South re quires can be accomplished through Con- ?:ress and the Supreme Court. It appears rom the press that Senators Davis and Iver son ridiculed the idea that the non-exocn-tion of the Fugitive-slave Law, or the Lib erty Bills of certain States, had any thing to do with tire Secession movement. They both, no doubt, nttered the truth. The movement is not influenced by one or the other, that is, so far as South Carolina is concerned. Her object at least that of her leaders is to leave the Union and form a grand independent slave confederacy. " Go not to the sword of Cte?ar to find the cause of the destruction of Roman liberty; seek it not in the camp; but go to the forum, thronged with inflammatory orators and as piring demagogues, with souls dead to their country's honor aud spotted with corrup tion. In conclusion. I have onlv to remark that I have no desire to see this model Republic follow the bloody and desolating example of tbe Mexican States. I am now and forever in favor of the Union, .its preservation, and the maintenance of the rights and interests of all the States, individually as well as col lectively, as guaranteed by the Constitution. i am, truly, your triend, JOHN E. WOOL. An English Portraiture of Abraham Lincoln. coin. A recent number of Once-a- Week contains the followingetfmusingly-elaitgerated per. sonal sketch of tbe next President : Abraham Lincoln is a eaunt ciant more than six feet high, strong, and long-limbed. He walks slow, and, like man thoughtful men (Wordsworth and Napoleon, far exam- Sle,) keeps his head inclined forward and ownward. His hair is wiry black, his eves aiu uittn. giaj, ins oiuilB ID 111111&, BlllCerO and winning. Like most American gentle men, be is loose and careless in his dress, turns down his flapping white collars, and wears hobitually, wbat we consider evening ureas, ma urau. is masaive, nis orow lull and wide, his nose largo and fleshy, his mouth coarse and full ; his eyes are sunken, his bronzed face is thin, aud drawn down into strong corded lines, that disclose the machinery that moves the broad jaw. This great leader of tho "Republican" Party this Abolitionist this -terror of the ''Democrats'this honest old lawyer, with face half-Roman, half-Indian, so wasted by climate, so scarred by life's struggles, wag born in 1809, iu Kentucky. His erandfather. who came from Virginia, was killed by the T. i : TT- .n i i , luuiaus, jub mumr uieu yunug, leaving a widow and several children. They removed to Indiana, Abe being at that time only six years old. Poor, and struggling, his mother could only afford him some eight months' rough schooling; and in the clearings of that new, unsettled country the healthy stripling went to work to hew hickory and gum-trees, to grapple with remonstrating bears, aud to look out for the too-frequent rattlesnake. Tall, strong, lithe and smiling, Abe toiled on as farm-laborer, mule-driver, sheeprfceder, deer-killer, wood-cutter, and, lastly, as boat man on tne waters ot tne Wabasn and the Mississippi. Thackeray's Latest Hero. Thackeray warns us that this new story is to be by no means of the sensation school. He says of his hero, " Philip r" He with whom we have mainly to do it a gentleman of mature age now walking the street with boys of his own. He is not going to pensn in tne lost cnapter ot these memoirs ; to die of consumption, with his love weeping by bis bedside, or to blow his brains out iu despair, oecause sue bos been married to las rival, or killed out ot a gig, or otnerwiso done tor in tbe last chapter but one. No, no ; we will have no dismal endings. Philip Fir- min ia well anil lieaetv nt iliia minnl. M.ma no man a shilling, and can enjoy his glass of port in perfect comfort. So, my dear Miss, if you want a pulmonary romance, the present won t suit you. ao, young gentleman, it you are for melancholy, despair and sardonic satire, please to call at some other shop, That Philip shall have his trials, is a matter of course may they be interesting, though they do not end dismally I That he shall fall and trip in his course some times, is preuy certain, ad, who uoes not upon tnig life-Journey of ours? Is not bur want the occasion of our brother's charity, and thus docs not good come out of that evil? When the traveler (of whom the Master, spoke) fell among the thieves, his mishap hag contrived to try many a heart besides his own the knaves who robbed him, the Levitas and priests who passed him by as he lay bleeding, the humble Samaritans whose hand poured oil into his wound and held out his pittance to relieve him. Sikodlab Sckni in Santa Ft. The Santa Fe correspondent of the St. Louis Republican, says: In the "piazza" yesterday a novel sight was presented. A band of Pueblos, some fifty in number, marched Into town in all the pomp and glorious circumstance of war, bear ing aloft four Navajo scalps, which they had recently torn from tbe reeking heads of as many Indians. After breaking their fast at the hospitable mansion of Commissioner Collins, they marched, in the form of a cres cent, to the musio of a drum of their own rude manufacture, accompanied . by their less harmonious voices, which at once brought business of every kind to m stand still. - - -i 'After marching around the M piazza " in tbe form in which they entered, tney halted in front of the " Palacio," in whieh the Governor resides, and, I presume( through respect to his official station, tney com menced the scalp dance, which was more wildly grotesque than the dance of witches in old Kirkaloway, Their costumes were varied, and seemed to have borrowed every color of the rainbow, whicla, with the alter nate shading of ocher. venuillion, and lamp black upon their ugly mugs, to the unin itiated, seemed as if pandemonium had opened her doors and let loose npon' our people about fifty of her very choicest devils.

To Ma ISdUor of Iht Daily Pratt The House of Bepresentatives has passed a Pacific Railroad Bill, but how the bill is constructed, or whit it really is, or who are me corporators nas to my knowledge not yet been published in this city. What I could learn of this bill outside tha City press, was that two linos are to be estab lished, one Aorta, and on South, with a view to heal sectional animosities. The other, and main features are: that Congress will give to the corporators first $96,000,000 in United States bonds, and every second section of the public land along the road. now. i nave no oojection to a racitic Rail road In fact a majority of the neotiln d. clared for it last November; but I protest in the name of this same majority, that they have not decreed by their vote that Congress shall squander the public funds, or the pub lic lands, for the benefit of a comparatively few corporators. I further affirm, that at least the Rentih. lican Representatives and Senators have no richt whatever to vote another acre of tha public land for railroad purposes; provided tbey feel themselves not bound to act ac cording to the Chicago Platform, of which the thirteenth article reads thus: "That we protest atrainet any sale or alien ation to others of the public lands held by actual settlers, and against any view of the free homestead policy which regards the settlers as paupers or suppliants for public bounty: and we demand the pasjage by Con gress of the complete and satisfactory home stead measure," which has already passed the House. This article clearly demands thn nfiq.qn.rrA of the bill, which had then passed the House. How far this voting of the public lands for railroad purposes is consistent with this complete ilomstead Bill, remains to be ex plained. a I have understood that the same bill pro vides to prevent the sale of the lands by giy. ing to every actual settler a certain number of acres rai' (other objects of the bill not withstanding.) How can they, then, pre vent such corporation from selling the land they have first granted to it? Although the same platform, in article sixteen says "that the Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient aid iu the construction of a railroad to tho Pacific," it by no means says that by such efficient aid Congress should enrich a cer tain class of citizens, called "corporators," by giving them first the money to build such road with, and then tho land as a bonus for their patriotic feelings. Now it says that the company shall have $96,000,000 in United States bonds to enable it to commence the work. Supposing they get this money, will they build the road to its destination? The.sume reasons and means used to get this first grant, will be used a second and a third time, before the road is finished. Have we not had this experience before in State legislation as . well as national? Will the Government, after having spent $96,000,000, and tbe land besides, allow this great amount of capital to be wasted? How are we to tell where these applications will end? If I have erred in the facts, you may be able to correct me by publishing both the Home stead and Pacific Railroad Bills complete, but nothing Bhort of this will convince me. A WORKING CITIZEN. A Supernatural Story Rationally Explained- Odd Freaks of an Amorous Girl. The tribunal of the Correctional Police of Gannat, France, has been occupied with a strange affair. A young man named Roux, employed in - a mill, on awaking in the morning found bis faco covered with blood, which came from a cut above the eye. This cut bad been inflicted while he was asleep, but by whom could not be discovered. The next evening a servant girl, employed in the family, having gone into the cellar for wine, cried out that the door was opened, that the cock of the casks had been turned, and that wine was flowing from it. That afterward, on entering her chamber, the same girl ex claimed, that various articles of linen had buen stolen, and they were subsequently seen lying near a river at some little dis tance. These circumstances were consid ered very extraordinary, and the only way by which they could be accounted for by the people of the mill was that the place was haunted a belief which the girl did her best to confirm. The next night, after she had retired to rest, she raised loud cries, and when some personB went to Bee her, she was found with several cuts on her face, and with blood flowing from them. She stated that she had been attacked by some men who had en tered tne mill to steal ; but that woji consid ered probable, and she was rigorously ques tioned. She then, after some hesitation, made admissions which cleared up the whole mystery. She had, it appeared, conceived a passion for a young man named Leboi, em ployed in tbe mill, but had never told him of ft. The foreman of the mill had threatened for gome reason to dismiss Lebel, and this caused ner to entertain sucn animosity to the fore man, that she resolved to be avenged. She accordingly went to his chamber to stab mm, but it so Happened tnat be bad got up in the middle of tho night, and his place in tbe bed was tasen by koux, woo, conse quently, received the stab intended for him. What the girl did afterward letting off the wine in the cellar, taking her linen to the river side, and inflicting cuts on her face- was to avert suspicion from her. In conse. quence, she was tried by the tribunal for cutting and (wounding koux, and was con1 demned to four months' imprisonment. Bbuabkablb Attack oh a Gkntlkic a. A correspondent of the London Timet gives the particulars of an extraordinary attack made upon a gentleman in London a short time ago. About five o clock in the after noon, when cabs, omnibuses, and foot pas gengera were crowding past ag usual, he passed tinder Temple Bar, en route for Greenwich. Ag he emerged from the arch be observed some men, eight or ten ia.all, drawn up oa each gida af the footway. He bad not advanced a step before they closed in and attacked him. They drove his hat over bis eyes, and endeavored to trip mm up. and otherwise assaulted him in the most violent manner. The gentleman kept his Socket intact, but he had his hand very much atnaired by being forced against the stene work of the arch. Of course, he had shouted " police I" with all his might, but of course no police had arrived. He then ran into Fleet-street, and soon found two constables chatting at the corner of Chancery-lane, lie told what bad happened to him, and re ceived tne cool reply, "aui yes, sir, tue econd attack to day.

Washiiioto!, January 10. Col. nayne called on the President last evening, and wag politely received. He stated, verbally, fully, that the purpose of his mission was to de mand the unconditional withdrawal of the garrison at Fort Sumter. The President heard him through, but then requested him to submit in writing, when he would consider it, and communicate his reply. This was all that occurred, and Col. Hayne is perfectly in the dark as to what the reply will be. He has been busily engaged most of the day preparing the document but the urgent solicitations of a large number of Southern Senators, I understand, have induced Col. Hayne to modify his views, and he has tele graphed this fact to Gov. Pickens, and asked For further instructions, and these Southern Senators insist on South Carolina doing no act which will involve a collision. Senator Davis has dictated and forwarded a letter to Gov. Pickens, which was written by another" Senator, in which he supplicates them to abandon any policy which would involve hostilities. Tho Cabinet has determined against hold ing any intercourse with any South Caro linians as Embassadors. It is rumored, and apparently ufon good authority, that Mr. Buchanan has assured the South that, while he can never recognize the de facto of South Carolina, or any other separate State seced ing, it would not be inconsistent with his former position to recognize a Government de facto, if embracing three or more States combined. Washington, January 17. Although the Republican Senators, yesterday, voted against the Crittenden Compromise, their chief objection was to that port to divide the territory which may hereafter be ac quired, but a measure of that character con fined to the present territory, meets with some degree of favor by the reports in both branches of Congress. It is known, iu most reliable Republican circles, that, so far, Messrs. Seward and Bates are the only gentlemen selected for Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet, and orobablv Mr. Willip, of Connecticut. The others will not be absolutely determined upon till the ar rival here of tho President-elect. New York and Washington News. New York, January 17. Jas. E.

"Tlie visit ot tbe JNew lork (Jongre9sional Delegation to the President is deferred, the Cabinet being in session to-day." The PotCe dispatch says : Lord Lyons, Mr. Schilleder, the Bremen charge, and other members of the Diplomatic Corps, have re quested Secretary Black to furnish official information, wbetber tne Uovernment of the United States will recognize the clearances of vessels which may bo issued by the State auioorities 01 ooutn varouno; aud also whether foreign vessels could properly pay uuuea w ouuiu varuium uuicen.
