VARIETIES Letter of Major General Wool to a Member
of Congress.
TROY, December 10, 1860.
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.

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
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.

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

of all the States, individually as well as col

An English Portraiture of Abraham Lincoln.
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

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

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.

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

Sikodlab Sckni in Santa Ft. The Santa
Fe correspondent of the St. Louis Republican,
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.
The dance went on, and the" multitude weut
off. and the Indians becoming weary and ont
of breath, soon marched away in the same
order as. that in which they first made theii
grand entree, " " - 1

The Pacific Railroad Bill.
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
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 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

Objection to the Crittenden Resolutions.
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
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
