BY CASTERS. all he She was my friend; a dark-eyed beauti ful girl! They say that opposite natures attract each other; but true as that mar be there was a great exception to tbis theory in our case, for we were much alike, and cherished a most tender affliction for each other. ' I remember well the beginning of our mutual admiration, and the incident that rendered ns inseparable friends. We were pursuing our studies with a few- others under the superintendanco of Mad ame Hester, a lady very highly educated and refined, and most worthy of the re sponsibility committed to her charge. 1 thought ber a most lovely woman, ana un til then bad considered the rest as being en tirely, beneath my notice. I sought no companionship with them ; it made me half angry to nave to listen, to wnat seem ed to me, their senseless talk and silly laughter. sol always sought some seclu ded retreat, when we were permitted to leave the school room. My mother used to tell ... Ant. ,1T me l was a "strange cniia, ana wnen i mingled the little 1 did with the world I know they thought the same; but 1 cared not, nay, rathered gloried in my strange fancies and uncongenial nature. I may truly say that 1 was no love-sick sen timentalist, that was . what I scorned above all things. I never fainted nor grew poetic over birds and flowers; but 0, how I loved the grand, the sublime! I would go alone and f it on a rock for hours, wnlch ing the great waves of the powerful river, or stand charmed fascinated by the roar of the majestic falls, as they plunged down into the restless depths of mist and fonm. But Virginia Hale! ' she came to us an entire stranger. My schoolmates seem ed rather to regard her as an iu trader. I knew she perceived their jealousy, though she said nothing; but I had often seen a half scornful smile play over her face as some whispered taunt reached her ear. I admired her exceedingly, and thought u I could gain ber confidence, in " her society I could forget many wearisome . hours. I knew bhe had a proud heart, yet warm and passionate as my own. One day, in the warm flush of the sweet summer, I took my book aud started for my favorite retreat. I remember how beautifully blue the sky was, and how rich and dark the shadows foil under the grand old trees; and standing there tinder the arches of the trembling leaves, was the beautiful young stranger the ouly one I would have named an intruder; as she heard my footsteps she turned to go away, but I sprang forward and caught her hand, saying : You are welcome here, will you let me le your friend V ' She clasped my hand tightly in her own, and pressed ber warm red lips to mine. I was answered and then continued "You are proud and fiery, so am I ; you look' like a queen sometimes, but that makes mo love you ; I detest these little bugs that crawl on the ground all their lives. She laughed as she replied : "There could not be a better mate for me: we will make a glorious team won't wet" ' , Then we sat down in the beginning of our acquaintance and tried to unfold hearts to each other.' rroud and haughty as she seemed, there was a grand religious ele ment in her nature, and a deep-toned feel ing that acknowledged, with reverence, the supreme greatness of the Creator, that bowed with meekness and humility to the demands of a just and unalterable law. I was satisfied then. I thought I had found the beautiful compliment which should afford delicious communions wiLb a soul whose aspirations were what I had loug sought for in others, vainly. 1 know it seems strange to the plain, practical portion of humanity, that there can be such restlessness of spirits, such tossing of souls but happy are they who escape this, which is indeed a very terror to it victim. But enough of this. Time flew gaily on bearingthat sweet summer swiftly away and too soon bear ns to our sad parting. We were alone that last hour we were permitted to spend together on earth. We knelt down to gether in the dim twilight, when the stars were rising slowly above the beautiful world, when the young moon was climbing the eastern hill and there breathed out ber vows of sweet remembrances and eter nal faith. I severed one dark lock from her head, and as I wound it around my fin ger she said; "Corrinne, when that turn's gray know that I have forgotten." They were strange words I did not think of death! I returned to my borne. The monotony was broken, often, by let ters from Virginia Hale. As months ad-, vanced, it seemed to me that ber vague wild fancies were now subdued. So I wrote and asked ber "if the fire had gone out of her heart f" I told her "in the place of the glorious 6un, she was growing tender as a summer's eve." I remember her reply I remember bow, for a moment cruel, wicked thought flashed through my heart at the knowledge that , even bad been supplanted, and 1 crushed tbe letter under my feet; that letter! that told of "one whose love was to her more than life P In my selfish love I had not thoueht of this. l gathered all her let- Lers together, wuo a poirait see naa given me, (L did not look at it then,) and wri ting one brief, cold note, sent them to her. Verv anicklv came back an answer, but I cast it into the fire, and as the flames curled up around it, I exclaimed bitterly: "I never will love, never win irusi again never, never I ' ; .' I was young then; years of experience have taugbc me a needful lesson. Well, years passed on went and came unto my life, with its feverish, fitful flow, brought me pain and weariness, but my heart was not humbled not yet, not yetl oini x gloried in my proud, unapproacba' ble nature. At last, one night I was left alone. 1 could not work my hands trembled, I could not read, for my heart would not be controlled it would think in spite of roe; gparn them as stoutly as I might, thoughts on W come; bitterest of all thoughts of Virginia. I heard a knock at the door; half dreaming, I arose to open it, supposing it to be some neighbor who had come. Before I reached the latch it was thrown open, and a letter fell at my feet. I tore open the envelope, and therein was a lock of black hair, and in her handwriting these words: "Come to me Corrinne! Come quick, before it is loo late! Come, before in the grave I shall forget you that lock of hair will soon be gray." It twined around my fingers carelessly pleadingly I thought aud I could not shake it off. ; It was near midnight, but I packed to gether a lew things I should ' need for my journey, and threw my nerveless frame up on tbe bed for a few hour s rest, cut l could not sleep. It seemed all those long hours, tilt morning, that the black cold curl was hanging to my finger. - At last morning came, and I stepped upon the cars and secured a srat in front of two gentlemen. ' I knew nothing of their conversation until I heard one of them mention the name of my destination. I sat still and silent, while they talked of a powerrul epidemic that spread terror and desolation over chilled hearts; and hearth stones where the few galheied to mourn over their woe; where the many were hur ried to the silent grave; where the streets were filled only, with what served for hearses. . . . 0, blackness! darkness! my heart stood still and then beat fast, till it seemed it would burst my brain reeled had I taken the fever f A fearful thought but I must live to see her. So I rallied, aud with a mighty effort strove to face the ter rible reality with a brave and strong heart. It was near midnight when we entered the scourged city. Shrinking from the gaze of the wondering passengers, I re quested a gentlemen to secure for me a private conveyance to take to the house of my friend. Upon bearing her name, he started and gazed inquiringly into my face. An expression of pain passed over her fine manly features, as he replied : '1 am her brother if you like, we will go together." I had felt so desolate and alone, that it seemed pleasant to find a friend, and I ac cepted the proposition gladly. Little con versation passed between us, and we soon arrived at the house. Lights were moving to and fro; but an awful stillness brooded over the place. My companion opened the door and we passed through the ball ; here he turned to me and said: "perhaps you would like to rest awhile before seeing her." I shook my head and gasped I must see her now! I caunot sleep I, cannot rest nutil I have seen her." He looked wonderingly at me, and pas sed several rooms; at every door my heart beat faster with a terrible excitement. At last he opened the one and we entered. I knew there were but few there; but I on ly could see a white couch'in a corner of the room. I knew some one removed my bon net and shawl, and then I looked long and eagerly at the form before me.- Herhead was thrown back, and her long, unbound hair hung in heavy locks over her white breast, ; In one band was clasped tightly a bible, bound in blue and gold tbe bible that I had given her long years ago. I went nearer, and laid my hand on her forenead. It was ice, ictl Merciful Father! She was dead ! . I did not faint nor cry. I dropped on my knees and laid my face close to. hers. I remember they tried to have me get up, and some one smoothed my uair and a voice whispered tenderly in my ear; but I clasped my arms around her neck and beg ged them to leave me, leave me alone aud they did so.' I should have filled with a vague chilling fear at being left with any other dead form ; but after the first fearful thought rushed by, it seemed blessed, that the grave had not yet hid her face from me; and I clasped Ler hands within my own, and pressed my feverish lips to hers, long and lovingly just as I used to then -just as I used to in the sweet "long ago; and looking balk I dreamed. . I know not bow long it was before tbey came to me. I awakened, and then came to me so strangely palpable, the whole truth, ma king me so heartsick! so desolate! But the funeral came, with its pomp and show with its black plumes aud solemn pall with the sod heaped up from tbe cold sepulchre, . with tbe slow breathed words: "I he dust shall return to its orig inal dust, but the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Then the sickening sound of the turf falling upon the cofin-lid while I stood praying unto trod that tears might be giveu me, so that the fire of this agony might be quenched. . But that bour passed into tne unrecall ed ; and 1 must awaken to life's duties again but not yet, not quite yet. As 1 was preparing to return to my home, an old and faithful servant, that had watched over my friend from her infancy, came to me with a package in her hand as tears rained down ber wrinkled cheek, she told me that the last earthly request of Virginia was, that she would not fail to give or send it tome. I did not open it tken; I wanted the quiet, secluded, little room at home for further thoughts, so I waited. The time seemed long tor my eager inind to be in that self-imposed suspense, but like all wearysome hours was soon passed. Soon as I could escape for the night, from inquiries and kind greetings of loved ones, I sat down and with trembling hands removed the wrappes from the pack age, l here was a little ebony box, deli cately starred with gold, and in it was a manuscript in the shape of a little book, and wound round it a lock of hair. Why was this! a simple lock of hair; and yet it made me shudder and grow cold I Was always to be haunted with a lock of .hair! I resolutely took it in my band, and lol threads of silver! it was growing gray The manuscript was as follows: "Corine 1 cannot write "dear bless ed friend," as I used to, and sometimes bard cruel thoughts steal into my heart ; then I am tempted to leave this undone, but even for your good, will I impose this task upon myself. Something tells me, that here, I shall never behold you, but you will look upon ray face when it has grown white and cold ; and then Corinne, I know, lying underneath that pride ot heart there will still beat warm pulses for your poor friend. When I am dead they will say I had the fever; be it so; but 0, 'twas" not alone the fever of my frame, it was my heart Corinne, my heart, was con sumed in the fire of its own long conflict ; if it is not sin to say it, death waves so chilling to the fearful multitude seem to be passing sweetly, smoothly, over my tired spirit, and I clasp it tightly to my heart for fear it ic ill get free from me: If I had written to you the first few months we were married, it would have been to tell you of love that satisfied me and I drauk of the sweet cup till it almost sickened me, but still held out my feeble bands and cried for more more ! He charmed; fascinated me, my husband, Ernest Lighton, and day after day I loved him more and more. O how I loved bim, but of this 1 cannot write much, for it seems to weaken my nerveless hands still more. We had lived thus just one year and purposed celebra ting the anniversary of our marriage. He had one sister whom he tenderly loved. She came many miles to be present that night, and after the affair was over, we urged ber to remain with us and she did She was a fair, proud girl, and I could plainly see that bhe almost idolized her brother Ernest. She was uniformly kind and pleasant to me, and I was iunocent and unsuspecting until one night fueling slighly indisposed I retired to my room and had been asleep; I awoke and not finding my husband in the room I went towards the drawing-room intending to , . T l.t l-l .1 seen mm. as l passea me norary, toe door being slightly ajar I heard the sound of voices iu the room, and also heard my own mentioned. I thought I would keep still a momeul and then spring in sudden ly as I had often done, and surprise them. Pity me, O my friend : I will relate the conversation near as I then knew, for I was bewildered and astonished. I bent my head forward and could see that their backs were to me and she bad her arms around his neck, and as she knelt down by him, and the soft, catlike tones came to me iu these words: "You do not love your sister as you used to Ernest; and she is not worthy of the love vou lavish upon ber. She is selfish and exacting and you are so patient with her your wife I mean H-rnest, or whom the world calls your wife, 0 it maddens me to knew and feel that now I occupy only a second place and I am alone, alone. O, Ernest it is terrible ! But away with this, I scorn it, though sometimes I indulge in it just to fret my proud heart; but be a womau Ernest; crawl at her feet if you will. I verily believe you would kneel down and let her feel rest on your neck He sprang up quickly and taking her at arm's length and looked her steadily in the face, saying: "Enough of this Augus ta Ligbton ! If you have wrecked your own happiness don't stay here to destroy mine; as for your insinuations and sarcasm they are nothing to me now but I am no thing but a man aud I warn you, I dare you to say another word 1" 1 . She raisea nor glorious eyes pieaaingiy, but he continued : "You stay, hereafter, on conditions; do you know them ! She bowed her head and rose to go. Then he looked at the sister he used to lead by the hand when he was a little boy, and his consci ence whispered that perhaps he had spo ken too harshly, so he stepped before her and said : "My sister let there be peace be tween us," and again she laid ber bead on his breast and wept passionately. I went back to my room. Well, he bad said nothing to censure me, but to defend me; but a fearful thought stalked a grim spectre thiough my soul. I looked gloomi ly into the future. As I sat there forgetting that he would expect to find me asleep he entered the room. Why was it ! But I know I raised my eyes defiantly to his. He seemed not to notice it, but took me in his strong arms and kissed me over and over again, and told me many times how well he loved his wife. He made some commonplace ob servations about Augusta. Then I know not what it was forced the bitter words from my lips. I exclaimed, "she is a ser pent, Ernest a serpent that will ruin our peace; that will fix a great gulf beetween you and me. He was astonished beyond measure and tried to reason with me, but I was to excited too listen ; I threw myself upon the sofa aud feigned sleep; I could hear the sobs come from his heart, I piti ed him then, and went to bim, and told him I loved him. He asked me to unsay those words, but 1 would not, then. I have re pented since, but 0, what pain and suffer ing has led me to it. He was very angry ; none but God new the agony I endured for a few days; but it passed away and I was happy again. I tried ot please bim in every way, and he seemed to love me more than ever and was by my side con stantly. For his sake, proud as I was, I tried to love our sister; tried to be kind and forbearing. I must hasten now, for I write of hours that are steeped in bitternes; hours whose fear and doubt and desolatiou have woven their black pall over my life, only say of her she accomplished her de signs ; that by her almost superhuman ef forts she succeeded iu alienating my hus band'saffection from me ; that on her death bed she was a prev to most terrible remorse and confessed all, to him me together; but but O. it was too late Uoo late 1 1 bad stifled all my love, had summoned all my pride to meet bis coldness with indifference, and now no tears, no prayers could call it forth; tbe idol is shattered ; the sweet incense up on tba altar is consumed to ashes; yet even as I hope to be forgiven, do I forgive her, all; and him likewise. . Farewell, dear friend, why should I wish to, stay here! why may I not say, that here, all have deceived me I it is a bitter thought but now 1 must put away all bitterness, and look ing away to .the serene, drawing morn of eternity I think that I can say : It is well that by a cross I have been rained thus. The light is fading: thus my life. Fare well, farewell, Virginia." When I had finished it seemed as if I was awaking from a dream. The clock struck one; solemn and deathlike fell the sound upon my heart, and the great error of my life rose up sadly before me, when I thought how I, whom she had trusted, might have conforted ber. I had joy af terwards. I loved and trusted and was spared the bitter cup, but it seems as if I should not intrude upon this sad history with the noisome revelry of pleasure, and its language must be surpressed, while thought with silent footstep treads over a grave of hurried hopes, and lifts the shroud folds from the poor frozen heart. ' Hayti for Emigrant Negroes. A colored gentleman, named J. Dennis Harris, has written a book of travel in the Carribees, in which he treats of the social and material condition of Hayti, and urges the emigration of negroes to that island : Mr. Harris gives the preference as a place of settlement for colored emigrants from the United States to the country under the jurisdiction of the Dominican repuplic. The large ana oeauinui lsiana oi riayu is capable of supporting a population of twen ty millioi.s; the number of its inhabitants is scarcely one million. The largest, finest and most thickly peopled part of the island is in the possession of that part of the col ored race who speak the Spauish language, aud who live under a different government from those with whom the commercial ports of the United States have the most frequent intercourse. In this part of the island the populaliou does not much ex ceed a quarter of a million. The climate, it is affirmed, is as healthy as that of Vir ginia, the sou is prodigiously fertile, the heat is not intense, and the fruits as fine as any produced within the tropics. On the beauty of the country and the excel lence of its productions, Mr. Harris dilates with an almost poetic rapture. At present the immense resources of this part of the kdand are almost useless for want of the necessary skill and other means to shape them for the purposes of life. - There are magmheent forests and no saw-uiills; the boards and beams for build ing are consequently imported from the United Stales. There is no finer climate or soil for coffee, but there are no planta tions; yet coffee grows wild on the waste lauds, and its grains are consequently of an inferior quality. Bees build in clefts of the rocks and in every hollow tree in such abundance that the women collect the hon eycombs, wash out the honey in tlte brook and send the wax to market. There is no planting of the cane; it springs up sponta neously, the inhabitants cut and grind it in wooden mills, and make a sugar of poor quality in small quantities. Oranges, lem ons, limes and cocoanuts of tbe finest qual ity abound, bnt there is nobody to collect them and pack them for the markets. ' In short, here is a country of great beauty and rare fertility, abounding not only -with the means of comfortable sustenance, but with a variety of resources which might be con verted into mines of wealth a country which al this moment offers as great in ducements to colonists as it did when first discovered by Columbus. The govern ment of the country invites and encourages the incomer, provided he bo of the agri cultural class, or one who follows a trade, supplies bim with sustenance and tools, and protects him in his contracts with the people of the island. It will soon become a grave question iu those slates which shall adopt tbo policy of emancipating their slaves, what shall be done with thein. The island of Hayti will offer to those who are willing to emi grate, as vast numbers of them doubtless will be, a country witbin easy reach trom any of cur ports in which their social equal ity wiil be recognized, in which they will not be obliged to pass through that dan gerous process of seasoning to which they must be subjected on the African coast, and to which nature seems to invite them, by offering the most liberal rewards, even to moderate industry. To the island of Hay ti five limes the number of persons now held iu slavery within the United Slates migh pass, without making il over popu lous. Mr. Harris is of opinion that it is the destiny of the mulatto race to found, iu the island of the Gulf and the Provinces of Central America, an Anglo-Arican em pire of a high degree of civilization. He denies the truth of what some assort, that the mulatto race is not healthy and prolific, at least wilhin the tropics, and cites the testimony of Moreau de St. Mery to prove that of ad the inhabitants of St. Domin go, the mulatto is the longest lived. From his white ancestors he inherits intelligence, enterprise and a taste for the arts of civiliza tion; from bis black progenitors strength, soberness, and a constitution suited to hot climates. Mr. Harris expatiates on the prospect opened to the growth and pros pects of ibis mixed race in the tropical re gious of our coniinent; where the pure white race becomes feeble and degenerate. To tbosJIwbo take an interest in the fi nal destiny of that family of the human species that has been transplanted from Africa to the New World, we can com mend this work as having an important bearing on that great question. Wealth in Mississippi. The Vicks burg Whig, of the 8th inst., says : "It has been estimated that the taxable wealth of Mississippi, in land and negroes, in the year of 1860, will ainout to the handsome sum of $553,100,000. The es timate for the county of Wairen is put down at 1 19,500,000. Hinds is put down as the richest couuty, her estimate being $29,000,000. Lowndes conies next, $26, 00,000. Yazoo and Bolivar, $25,000,000. Madison, $28,000,000. Marshall, $22, 000,000. De Soto, $20,000,000, etc." The Charleston Mercury exclaims, the Lord deliver the Democratic party. If it is in an interesting- way we hope ha will. Vote of Ohio—Official.

Ladies caged birds of beautiful plu mage but .sickly looks pale pets of the parlor, who vegetate in an unhealthy at mosphere, like a potato germinating in a dark cellar why do you not go out into the open air aud warm sunshine, and add luster to your eyes, bloom to your cheeks, elasticity to your steps, and vigor to your frames! Take morning exercise; let loose your corset strings, and run up the hiils for a warer, and down again for fun; roam the fields, climb the fences, leap the ditches, wade the brooks, and after a day of healthy unrestrained liberty, go home with an ap petite acquired by healthy enjoyment. The blooming and beautiful young lady rosy-cheeked and bright-eyed who can darn a stocking, mend her frocks, com mand a regiment of pots and kettles, feed the pigs, milk the cows, and be a lady when required, is the girl that young men are in quest of for a wife. But you pining, screwed up, wasp-waist ed, doll-dressed, consumption-mortgaged, music-murdering, and novel devouring daughters of fashion and idleness you are no more nt lor rontrimony ttian a pullet is to look after a brood of four teen chickens. The truth is, my daar girls, you want less fashionable restraint and more iioerty ; more Kitchen ana less parlor; more leg exercise and less sofa; more puddin and less piano; more frank ness and less mock modesty. Lose your waist strings and breathe in the pure at mosphere, and become as good beautiful as nature designed. PRENTICEANA. The Southern Confederacy thinks that tho vulture must be feeding upon the heart of Mr. Buchanan. If 'the vulture baa no thing else lo eat, we are afraid the unfor tunate bird will starve to death or find it self poisoned. Some of tho South Carolina young wo men are said to be busy manufacturing Disunion cockades for the men. May eve ry mother's daughter of them live and die an old maid. A Sumpter county (S. C.) paper says it can speak for the people of its county, that thev "will "t move from their posi tion." VVe suppose the Sumpter men are as obstinate as so many Sumpter mules. . The crops promise well. The corpse of of the Democratic party seems to have ma nured the land. VVe are glad that a parly which was of no use in iu life, turns out to be of tome in its death. From the Cleveland National Democrt. Suggestion Worthy of Consideration. I The following, from a veteran of the "Old Jackson Guard," one upon whose Democratic shield could be written, "Ever Truthful," with the edorsement of all who know hinr as to its truth, is worthy ef the highest consideration. A portion of the Democratic parly have broken off have followed, as the blind followers of Juggernaut follow their idol, tbe fortunes of one who owes all of his fame to the Democratic party, its princi ples and its organization, and "Douglas and his wen" are no longer with us nor of us. By coalescing with tho enemies of the Democracy by fusing and making com mon cause with the Know Nothings against life long Democrats by openly striking hands and making alliances with tbe Black Republican sectional enemies ' of Democratic principles, to eject from the Senate of the Uuiled States men who, like Chevalier Bayard, were knights without reproach in the Democratic army, and to fill their places with an open enemy and a blind follower of the smallest idol ever set up for the worshopof a Christian or a sen sible people, they have placed themselves beyond and out of the Democratic organi zation, and their leaders are no longer withiu the fold of the faithful. Such a view of he field, doubtless, im pelled the veteran to write the following, in order to purge tbe paity of its impuri ties to shoot the deserters, and to again rally, as of old, with an honest party, of honest, self sacrificing men, who enlist for the war, not for principles tljey hold to be above price : Suggestion Worthy of Consideration. MILLERSBURG, O., Oct, 17, 1860. C. B. Flood, Esq. : Sir In looking over the battle ground of the 9th. count ing tbe slain and the number the Blacks have taken, one is constrained to inquire, whence all this! are our troops not as val iant as ever! are the not as willing to con tend for the right as ever! There is a reason for this overwhelming defeat. Per haps commanders are not skillful, or have adopted a new system of tactics. Like the Battle of Bladensbiug, too many try ing to command, peradveuturer. Possibly relying npon the horses and chariots of Egypt, depending upon individual will and strength, going lo do battle without con sulting sovereign wisdom, with whom the st rength exists. One lesson learned "Let those who think they are strong, take heed least they fall" "Alas, how fallen, poor squatter." Friend, I am not despairing; there is salt , enough left to preserve the . Democratic party and its principles intact, and with it the Union. Should we not rise for years again to empire, if we are faithful to our trust, we can hold and yield influeace suf ficient to hold the disturbers of the com mon peace iu check. I know, and you know we all know that neither consti tutional or legal obligations interpose any barrier to their progress, Constitutions, law and obligations imposed all sink iuto insig nificance before their higher-law nations. Now, I propose that the National De mocracy perfect their organization -hold their Slate and County Conventions nom inate and vote for our candidates thus nom inated, if we should have but one vote in a county. To this end, I suggest that we hold an Eight. of January Convention at. Columbus, a gathering of the Old Jack son Guard, aud nominate our candidates for Stale offices, good men and true, and adhere to them through good and evil re port.. Yours respectfully, D. P. LEADBETTER. That there is salt enough left to save tho party to form the nucleus of an or ganization that, wilhin the next four years, will make the Ohio Democracy more pow erful than it has been since the day its would-be leaders commenced their base pandering to the fell spirit of abolitionism our faith is strong, and, in all he says, we indorse the letter of our old Jackson friend, and make his recommendation our own. "Hoist with their own Petard." The "Bell-rinn-ers" have been laboring to o show that the election of Lincoln will pre cipitate the Southern Slates into revolu tion, and that the only way to prevent the catastrophe is to elect Bell. It seems that this nice little game of intimidation is one that two can play at. The Richmond En quirer says'. ..r If Virginia, proving recreant to the South, and unfaithful to the high position she has formerly held, should, in this can vas, vote for John Bell, the Southern States will immediately become alarmed for their safety, and abandon a Union in which Virginia, baviug ber soil out-raged by Black Republican invasion, had com pounded for peace by deserting the South. Those States will not permit ber to enjoy her shamefully purchased peace; but, by forbidding the importation of Virginia ne groes, will return the poisoned chalice to her lips, and to compel nr i i very dres. A vote for John Bell by Vir ginia will properly be construed at the North as an overture to Black Repulican ism and by the South as a shameful truck tn Northern fanaticsm. and bv tbe world as an advance step toward abolition. Will not such an oninion "fire to the Southern heart," and "precipitate the Cot ton States to a revolution !" And yet with all these facts before them, the oppo sition call themselves Union men. What an imposiliot upon public credulity.
