It may bo set down as certain that 'when
in this emergency, a body of men get to
gether in a professed Union-meeting and
gravely recommend the North to submit to
the incorporation of the Breckinridge plat
form into the Constitution of the United
Stales, ns a remedy for present troubles,
that none who have ever called themselves
Republicans, and tliat few or no Douglas
Democrats arc represented therein. That
dirt-eating, we are happy to say, lu» thus
far been confined to the supj>orters of John
Bell and of John C. Breckinridge, aided,
possibly, by a few cowardly merchants
who arc for anything or anybody that will
insure a larger share of Southern trade.
The Philadelphia meeting is no exception
to the rule.
There ecems no longer room for doubt
that the Old Pub ic Functionary lias re
fused flatly to respond to the call of the
officer in charge of Fort Moultrie for men
and ammunition to guard the property of
the United States against probable attacks
by the Charleston mob. It is even reported
that Gen, Cass contemplates resigning, in
consequence of the traitorous policy of the
Administration in this regard. We have a
word for old 3lr. Buchanan's private ear.
If Fort Moultrie falls into the hands of the
ruffians who are now plotting disunion,
and if the disaster is traced to his door, he
will be held responsible for the crime of
Treason—one of the definitions of which,
in the Constitution, is “adhering to the
•‘enemies of the United States, and giving
“ them aid and comfort.” It will be a new
excitement, decidedly, putting an ex-Presi
dent on trial for treason; but the prisoner
miy rest assured that hi? last end, in case
of conviction, will b: more universally ap
phu.lcd than any other event in his career.
Meanwhile, lei not 3fr. Buchanan's con
federates in South Carolina fancy that the
capture of the forts is a step in the right
direction—a more calculated to lead the
■wny to the political millennium. It will
be only the beginning of sorrows. If it
costs them but thousands of dollars to take
Fort Moultrie, it will cost them millions to
bold it
About a year ago wc called attention to
the subject of the efforts being made to im
prove the modes of manufacturing flax so
as to bring it within such limits of economy
as would enable it to compete with cotton.
TVe then spoke of the matter chiefly in its
bearing upon the agricultural and manu- j
lecturing interests of our own Stale. The
present condition of the country gives it a
national importance. We are glad to
loom through a communication to the Bos
ton Journal , that the efforts to perfect this
manufacture are still continued, and that
progress is made. Willi a copy of the above
communication wc received four specimens
of the flax-fibre, in ns many stages of pro
gress, with statements of cost., No. 1 is
marked 44 Flax as broken up in the fields of
the West—baled and sent to Boston. Ma
chinery movable, if desired, from field to
Held. No maceration is required.” No. 2
is 44 Flax-vool) which mixes with wool in
any proportion, and costs five cents when
made in Boston.” No. 3is 44 flax-cotton,
which can be made within eight cents.”—
Of this the staple seems to be short, and
the manufacturer docs not claim that it will
spin well alone. The specimens of print
ed goods calico, is said to be half flax-cot
ton and half Southern cotton.
On the whole, wc cannot say that, on
this showing the thing is yet a complete
success. Bui a good show of progress is
made, and wc arc disposed to think that
the perseverance and ingenuity which has
accomplished so much will j'ct achieve
greater triumphs.
We should have been pleased to receive
more definite information than the writer
in the Journal seems disposed to give.
Were the specimens made from flax which
had ripened its seed ? Where can the ma
chmcv for use in the field be had ? What
price can Western farmers rely upon get
ting for the fibre broken and baled? No
experiment, or invention, now in process
of development, seems to ns of more inter
est than this. The soil of the West is par
ticularly fitted for the growth of flax, and
we can readily furnish the raw material to
an amount equal to the cotton crop of the
South, if we can have a market at rcmunc
ncrativc prices. And we hope yet to see
in this direction new development of the
energy, resources and rewards of free labor.
Under the above caption the New Or
leans Picayune calls attention to the fact
that the interests of thcriavcholdlng States
arc not homogeneous—that already in the
progress of the movement for a Southern
Confederacy, the germs of future contro
versy, growing out of conflicting interests,
are plainly to be seen—and that, should
secession ensue, u a new line of sectional
ism'’ which shall divide the slave States
themselves, would be ns strongly marked
upon tbe map of the Southern Republic, as
that which now separates the slave Stales
from the free. The view taken by the
Picayune is undoubtedly correct There is
nothing more certain, whatever else may or
may not be the result of a division upon the
line of Mason and Dixon, tlum that it will
transfer the u irrepressible conflict" south of
that line. It cannot be otherwise. The
border Slates grow slave labor for market
—the gulf States furnish the market Here
is a conflict of interest that has no middle
ground of adjustment In the gulf States
the belief is now universal that
slavery is morally right—a great civ
ilizing and Christianizing institution.
Both interest and duty therefore combine
in demanding the reopening of the African
slave trade. The interests of the border
Slates arc adverse to this mode of spread
ing tbe gospel among the heathen, and tlgur
sense of duty in the matter Imrmonizcs
well with their interests. One polity or
the other must prevail, and the struggle
over it will be fierce and unending. Sowell
is this understood, that the Gulf or Cotton
States propose to obviate the difficulty by
framing the fundamental law ol the new
Confederacy without the intervention of
the border slave States. This is one reason
why separate action is so strongly urged
by the cotton States, and why a convention
of the slsvcholding States is so persistent
ly opposed. But the effect, after all,
would only be to change the point over
which the conflict would be waged—in the
one ease, as to the incorporation of the
provision into the fundamental law; in the
other, as to its repeal.
Then again, in the event of secession,
the border slave States would become man
ufacturing Stales. Senator Hunter, of Vir
ginia, pictures in glowing colors the desti
ny of the border slave Stales, and portion,
larly that of his own State, by reason of
this fact Virginia, he says, would soon
become the New England ot the new Con
federacy. Of course the new New Eng
land would demand a tariff lor the pro
tection of her new industrial interest
But South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi
and Alabama would resist a protective
tariff just as resolutely when demanded by
the border slave States as they now do
* when demanded by the free States. Their
interests are the same in this regard
whether they remain in the present Union
or withdraw from it Secession would
only transfer the tariff ccnflict, not settle
iL . „
But if the border slave States become
manufacturing States, it will be but a short
time before they will appreciate the fact
t>i*t alavdry is a great detriment to their
progteea. The leaders in the secession
movement have the sagacity to foresee this
result, and they propose providing against
it, bj prohibiting the introduction of slaves
from the border States into the cotton*
growing States. But this will only orsat*
anew cause for strife in the new Confede
racy-only add a new element of bitterness
to the irrepressible conflict
Again, the sugar interest of Louisiana is
now protected by a duty upon the foreign
article. The planters of that State receive,
in effect, a bonus of S3OO on every SI,OOO
worth of sugar which they send to market.
If Louisiana goes into the New Confedera
cy, she will not consent to give up this ad
vantage ; and she will resist it the more
because the free Slates would at once ad
mit foreign sugar, duly free, if not actually
discriminate against the Louisiana article.
In either event she would lose her best cus
tomer. Any attempt to abolish or reduce
the tariff on sugar by the New Confedera
cy, would cause Louisiana to unite with
the border slave Stales in favor of ft grand
protective system. Likewise, the interests of
Louisiana would demand the freedom of
the Mississippi to the commerce of the
Northern Confederacy. New Orleans
would fall rapidly into decay if this source
of her commercial prosperity were cut off;
and that city controls the policy of the
State. Here arc elements of discord—the
seeds of an irrepressible conllict—that
would soon bring forth their appropriate
Sooner or later these facts must impress
themselves upon the Southern mind. If
deliberation Is permitted, secession will
not occur, unless South Carolina prove an
exception. If the South goes off precipi
tately, experience will lead to repentance
ami restoration. At all events the people
of the free States have but one policy to
pursue; that is to stand where they have
always stood, upon the Constitution and
the laws—conceding whatsoever these de
mand and nothing more, and demanding
all tliat they arc justly entitled to under
them. Beside the ineffable meanness and
poltroonery of making concessions in the
face of a tlircat, no permanent peace could
be secured by granting them. Slavery, to
maintain its foothold in this country and
under our civilization, must be constantly
aggressive. The moment it submits to
what the Constitution and enlightened
laws alone grant it, that mox ent dates its
decline and final overthrow.
the bust resolution.
Our readers will perceive tho impossi
bility of forming a correct opinion on the
Rust resolution, which fias been adopted
by the Committee of Thirty-three, when
we tell them that the telegraph gave it to
us in the following incomprehensible phra-
Resolved, That In the opinion of tbisCommittcc
ih.* exiting dl‘contents among the Southern peo
ple and the growing hostility amon" them to the
FederalGovernment,are irrcally to he regretted,
.md that another such discontent and hostility,
without Just cause, arc not any reasonable and
nrnper constitutional remedies and effectual guar
antee* their peculiar Interests as recognized by the
Constitution, necenaanr to preserve the peace, and
the perpetuity of the talon, should he promptly

By dint of comparing it with Mr. Mor
rill's amendment and examining Hie vari
ous voles taken on the various propositions
before the Committee, we felt authorized to
lick it into some sort of form and comeli
ness, thus:
Resolved, That In the opinion of this Committee,
ihc cxinllug document among the Southern peo
ul-% and the growing hostility among them to the
Federal Government, arc greatly to be regretted:
and that auvh discontent and hostility arc not with

Under the circumstances, wc are not pre
pared to criticise the action of the commit

a needless concession of the only vital issue
1 1 the controversy, to-witx that the exist
ing discontent among the Southern people,
and the growing hostility among them to
the federal government, arc not without
food cause—the cause being the election of
Lincoln and Hamlin. Such a declaration
would be an unpardonable folly, if not a
political crime. But it is not proper thus
io construe the action of the Committee
from the unintelligible dispatch which

Lord Macaulay’s writings have forycarsbccn
about os widely known, os greatly admired, on
this as the other side of the Atlantic. He has
now passed away, and like Irving and Cooper,
England has not, and may not have for many
generations, a man to till bis place In the liter
ature of his conntrr. The publishers have
laid their countrymen under many obligations
by issuing an accurate and so elegant an edi
tion of the writings of the great English essay
ist, and though most gentlemen of cultiva
tion have many of the essays of Macaulay in
other forms, they will be willing to add this
beautiful edition to their libraries.
The publishers claim, and we believe justly,
the following among other advantages of the
edition before us:
The essays have been arranged in exact
chronological order, so that their perusal af
fords, so to speak, a complete biographical por
traiture of the brilliant author's mind. No
other edition possesses the same advantage.—‘
A very full index has been especially prepared,
—without which the vast stores of historical
learning and pertinent anecdote contained in
tbe essays, can be referred to only by the for
tunate man who possesses a memory os great
os that of Macaulay himself In this respect
It Is superior to the English editions, and
wholly unlike any other American edition.—
This edition also contains the pare text of Ma
caulay's Essays. The exact punctuation, or
thography, etc., of the English editions have
been followed. The portrait of the photo
graph by Claudet, and represents the great hir
torion os he appeared in the later years of his
life. The biographical and critical introduc
tion is from the well-known pen of E. F. Whip
ple, who Is fully entitled to speak with author
ity, In regard to the most brilliant essayist of
the age. The typographical excellence of the
the publication places it among the best that
have been issued from the ** Riverside ” Press.
The appendix- contains several essays attrib
uted to Lord Macaulay—and unquestionably
his—not found in any other edition of his mis
cellaneous writings.
We need scarcely advise our readers to call
at Griggs's and purchase the work. The edi
tion is entirely accurate, and probably a better

Editors Chicago Tribune
In my last I gave you some account of the
Quartz add, and the future prospect of that
branch of mining; also the superior agricultu
ral advantages that this country possesses.
Believing that the thousands of your readers
look with eager eyes for any news that may
tend to throw more light upon this wonderful
countiy, I will give them some facts, that they
may have something to talk over these long
winter evenings. I mow propose to speak of
the silver mines, for they arc worth speaking
gf. They are now the all absorbing question
In this city. These mines arc from one to twp
hundred miles south and west of here, and are
found crossing out and running nearly in a
»tralt 'course up and down the mountains,
while their descent are to all appearances near
ly perpendicular.
I will now give you some evidence of the
real value of these mines. A friend of mine
lias Just arrived in this city direct from the
mountains, and brought with him a small
handful of silver, varying In size from a bird
shot to nuggets of eight to ten pennyweights.
Tills is no humbug. He obtained it by piling
up a large quantity of wood, putting on his
rock and making as intense a lire as possible,
adding occasionally more fuel,until he felt sat
isfied that if there was any mineral of any kind
it must melt out After letting the whole cool
on; the ashes were raked over and a nice little
lot of something very much like silver was
found, and having doubts in his own mind,
brought it here, when I took a small piece,
about the size of a buck-shot, to the mint bauk
of Clark, Gruber «fc Co., whose statement I
will, in their own hand writing and over their
own signature, Inclose in this, which you arc
at liberty to publish. Clark, Gruber & Co.
have proposed to take stock in these mines If
after a full and thorough test they prove 0. K.
Now if there is any men who are in every
sense of the word reliable, and have the enter
prize to take bold and form a Joint Stock
Company, not less than live nor more than ten,
and send a reliable man who has eyes and
brain?, and whose statements can be depended
upon, we arc ready to furnish the claims, with
the understanding that no expense for ma
chinery tliall be laid out, before the mines are
well tested, and proved beyond a doubt to pay.
Now, will the American people always be
damphools, and let the English lion get his
paw upon all the silver mines in the world?
It i» a well known fact they control the silver
mines of South and Ccntr.il America and Mcx-
ico, and have made a grab at the rich mines of
Carson Valley. Now is it possible that we have
not capital and enterprise enough to open
these almost fabulous mines ? I think wc have
—if the court knows himself
The rich placer diggings that have been dis
covered some three to six hundred miles south
of here, have drawn thousands of miners in
that direction this fall. They arc said to be
the richest placer diggings ever found in this
country. As they cannot be worked before
spring, when the snow goes off, wc must wait
to know the real truth about them.
As I have already exceeded ray limits, I will
defer until my next some things that will be
of interest to those who intend to come out
with merchandise early in the spring. Wc
have just had a little brush of a ten days win
ter, but now wc are enjoyinga most delightful

Last summer, IL F. Sickles, Esq., of Moline,
in this Slate, met Eldad N. Williford, a slave
holder of St. Louis, and during a political dis
cussion, abet was made of a certain amount
of flour, the manufacture of Sir. Sickles,
against one of Mr. Whltford’s negroes, on the
result of the election in this State and Now
York. Nothing more was heard of the bet
by Mr. Sickles, till after the election, when be
received a letter from Mr. Whitford Informing
him that the negro was rightfully las, and that
he mustcomeand take possession of him. Mr.
Sickles immediately went to St. Louis, took
possession of his property and went before the
City Recorder, obtained Charley's free papers
and handed them to* him, telling him at the
same time that he was a free man, and could
do with himself as he pleased. The joy of the
negro was unbounded at the thought of his
being able to say that he owned hUnset/! The
negro is about thirty-live years of age, and is
what they term down South “a good likely
negro,” active aud smart, and would have
brought In the Southern market from $1,200
to $1,500.
These facts we gather from the Rock Island
New Kind of Express Freight.—The
NorfolkfVa.) Day Book states that an individu
al named Boulewarc passed through Raleigh,
N. C., on Wednesday last, in charge of the
Express Company, close shaved, aud hearing
on his back the marks of a hundred and fifty
stripes, well laid on, and consigned to Horace
Greeley, New York. The consignees arc citi
zens of Wlnnsborough, S. C., and his punish
ment arises from his having uttered Incendi
ary language—probably saying that he voted
fur Lincoln and Hamlin.

It was rumored in this city yesterday thotr
Caleb C. Woodbury, who we all supposed was
dead, was seen in Chicago not long since. /,
i It will be remembered that he was Ports’"
master at White Pigeon, in this State, was
arrested for robbing toe mail, examined by U./
S. Commissioner Wilkins, and held to boil Uf
,$4,000, or in default to be Imprisoned in the
Jail ot St Joseph county. Also, that he war
taken home by U. S. Deputy Marshal Moore,
on the 18lh of August last, to procure ball, if
possible, and that while in his own house he
"retired to his chamber to change his
and take a short nap, and that not making hii
'appearance In dne time, the chamber door w&
burst open and he was found lying dead in hl£*

and the presence of some of it in the room; led
naturally, to the belief that be committed

Various Sitters Relating Thereto.
[From the Pittsburgh Gazette, Dee. 11.]
We have been shown a letter from Mr. Har
ris, the agent of B. A. Fahnestock <fc Co., who
was rudely expelled from New Orleans by a
mob, for the sole offence of being a Northern
It is not true, as stated in the Chronlde yes
terday, that Mr. Harris voted for Lincoln, nor
did he boast that be had so voted and was glad
of it. Mr. Harris did not vote at all, not being
ut home at the time of the election, but was a
Bell man with strong Breckinridge proclivi-
The expulsion took place bn the 27th ult
He liad been in the city a day or two, attending
to the business of the firm, and was sitting in
his room at the hotel, when he was waited up
on by a committee, who compelled him to go
down stairs, where he met an excited crowd,
and was presented by the foreman of the Com
mittee, who said:
“ Look at him, and see If he U the man yon
want.” The mob shouted, “Yes, that’s him.
th e d—d abolitionist;” “out with him;”
“ we’ll fix blm“ lynch him,” etc.
But the speaker, or as he proved to be, the
chairman of the Vigilance Committee, pro
ceeded : “ Mr. Harris is accused of being an
abolitionist—of being the agent of an aboli
tion house —of having said he was glad of
Lincoln’s election —that he voted for him, and
was proud of it. He is represented as being
an unfit person to remain in this community.
We will examine him.” [A voice—“ Examine
the devil—bang him.”
A Mr. Nathans was then presented as wit
ness, who stated that he met him in Morrison's
store, that he did not deny being a Black Re
publican, and that he said:
“Let the South secede, nobody cares; the
North can get along very well without the
South, and he for ouc wantod to chow them
who will suffer the most; and he was’nt afraid
of the South—no indeed, not he.”
Mr. Harris denied all thcscallcgations; sent
for Mr. Morrison to show that it was not true,
and made a speech to the crowd, in which he
admitted that he was in favor of secession, as
the quickest way of settling the present diffi
culty. ‘When Mr. Morrison arrived, the crowd
was so great that the proprietor of the hotel
insisted that the Committee should go with
Morrison and Harris to Harris’ room, and re
port the result of their investigation to the
crowd. This was done, and for the rest we
leave Mr, H. to tell his own story.
“Here I threw open for their inspection
some of my private correspondence, letters of
introduction, &c., several of which letters be
ing from men well known to the committee,
they expressed their entire satisfaction, and in
fact my position gained the full approval of toy
<zcc«vr, Jfr. Xathans. All of Mr. Morrison’s
telimouywas also in my favor. The report
of the committee was, ‘Harris is all right.’
But that would’nt do. Harris must leave
town, to say the leastJihoutit—anda majority
were in favor of lynching him under the cir
cumstances. I was thereloro told, ‘The cars
leave in 40 or 45 minutes; can you get ready?’
I said yes, and at once packed my trunk.
* * * A carriage was ordered at an
alley, in the rear of the hotel, and I smuggled
through the back way unknown to the crowd.
When once in the carriage, the horse galloped
at top speed to the depot, arriving just in
time to get aboard the cars. As the train
moved olf, I felt some relief, as may be sup
Here it will be seen that the committee and
even Nathans, his accuser, were perfectly sat
isfied that Harris was not amenable to the
charges made against him; hut the mob had
come determined to lynch him, and would not
rest satisfied otherwise.
We learn that several other Pittsburghers
have been expelled in like manner. In
New Orleans seems to he given up to the do
minion'of the mob, who hunt out every Nor
therner who arrives and compel him to leave.
New Orleans ought to prosper under such do
minion as this. We do not wonder to hear
Uuit there were ten commercial failures there
in one day, and that the business of the city
is dull.
Wc have heard meu attempt to prove almost
everything from the Bible. But the latest dis
covery is that secession Is enjoined by Paul.
We find this in a South Carolina paper;
“in the first Epistle to Timothy, chapter •»
Paul lays down the duty of to mas’
tens and of masters to deal justly with their
servants, and adds: 44 These things exhort and
teach- If anv man teach otherwise, aud con
sent not to wholesome words, even the words
of our Lord Jesus Christ, aud to the doctrine
which Is according to Godliness, he is proud,
knowing nothing, but doting about questions
and strifes of words, whereof comcth envy,
strife, railings, evil surmisiugs, perverse dis
putlogs of men of corrupt minds, and desti
tute of the truth, supposingtbiit gain is Godli

The telegraph brings us news that will bring
the Mood into every American’s face, and cause
a rising in his throat like that which oppressed
old Lear. South Carolina is considering a bill
in her Legislature providing for the observance
of certain holidays in the State, the sole ob
ject of which seems to be to strike out, and as
far as she can, annihilate the Fourth of July.
What docs this mean? Wc have refrained
purposely from ail excited language against
lids deluded Stale, but wc cannot refrain from
asking the object of this enactment Is It in
tended to exasperate this great American con
federacy t Is the object to bring on a crisis ?
Is the design to create an impassable barrier
between those who once gloried in a common
, country ? Is It desired to provoke the mighty
West, and the North, two of whose States
count each three millions of people ? Is this
the meaning of peaceable secession, that every
movement should be as insulting as possible?
Does South Carolina wish to bring «n blood
shed, that all the other Southern States may
thus be forced to join her? How if Kentucky,
and Tennessee, and Missouri, should stand by
the Fourth of July, instead of desiring that it
should be stricken from the page of history?
Tlic New Orleans Ihita has an article on
“ Alleged Violence,” in which U speaks of the
South being “so deeply aroused and so justly
indignant,” and says that owing to the “faith
lessness and arrogance of the North,” it is not
surprising “if some of the excitable of our
population should manifest their feelings in
words and acts xnorecmphatlc and violent than
have generally characterized them.’* The Ddla
has made diligent inquiry, and has not been
able to verify anv charges of violence towards
individuals. It states the case of Mr. Glenn,
of Cincinnati, us follows:
Mr. Glenn, the Cincinnati sugar buyer, made
himself rather offensive by his boastful excla
mations in regard to a man who is believed to
be the enemy of our institutions and people,
which naturally excited the disgust of his lis
teners, aadinduecd his friends to counsel his
departure from the city. But Mr. Glcuu re
ceived no violence, not even an insult.
The idea that Mr. Glenn made himself offen
sive by “boastful declamation” is absurd. Ev
ery one who knows Mr. Glenn, knows that he
Is incapable of boastful exclamations In such a
case. And if ho Is, has a beastfnl exclamation
become a crime in New Orleans ?—Cincinnati
A letter from Charleston totheN.T. Tribune
has the following interesting developments of
a sudden reaction thathas taken place in South
“ Although upwards of eighteen hours have
elapsed since tho polls of the election, held
yesterday (Dee. 0), closed, the result is not yet
known, ‘i his comes from no great labor iu
the case, for anywhere else the votes could
have been canvassed in three hours; hut It Is
the way things arc done here. Enough is
known, however, to render it certain that
Rhett & Co. have had n narrow escape from
defeat, and that even, if chosen, they will stand
pretty low down on the list of delegates.
“The country will never know through any
purely South Carolinian sources the very truth
of this election. The important fact in the
case is the development of a minority (if It Is
not the majority) sentiment on the subject of
secession in Charleston, and, it Is now believed,
throughout tho State. This sentiment, while
It is not anti-secession in its essential charac
aclcr, Is at the same time opposed to the policy
of precipitation. It Is the result of a dawn
ing sober second thought, which, while It has
not yet advanced so far as to forbid secession
altogether, demands that, if done, when it is
done, it shall be with decency, and after lime
has been taken toconsnlt withtheolhercotton
States. It demands that there shall be delib
eration in the case, and an absence ot violence,
if possible. It sars that when the convention
convenes on the l'7th, it may appear to be the
soundest policy, instead of rushing headlong
to a simple enactment of the programme of
the ultras, to delay first for weeks, then
months, or then years; and that, If so the de
lay shall be had.
“It is not difficult to see that sneb a senti
ment, havimr the power of expressing itself in
action, affords some grounds for the hope that
the course even of South Caro.lna is not en
tirely predetermined. As an additional evi
dence of the existence of such a feeling, I
quote a resolution adopted by a meeting in the
Spartansbnrg district u few days previous to
the election, and which yon will look for in
vain in the columns of the Mercury:
M ‘Eifoirfif. That according to our opinion.
South Carolina is now acting rather ha*til*: that
the Convention was wiled prematurely; that the
meeting c.f the Convention «honld not have taken
place until the middle of January or the 3r-t of
February, so that the course the other Southern
States will pursue might be known.’
“Of the successful candidates fur the Con
kventlon It may be assumed that Judge ila
mrath will stand at the head o! the list. Al
though the Judge resigned bit scat on the
bench, and thereby placed himself at the head
of the rebellion movement, apparently, he has
hitherto been a conservative man, prone to de
liberate, opposed to precipitation in all things,
/and In most things quite the opposite of the
Rhett fire-eaters. Notwithstanding that he
persistently refused to allow his name to be
run for the Chnvcntion, the solid men and
-thinking classes, who, committed as they arc
io secession, dreaded to commit the question
/to the leadership of the Rhett party, took him
up. The fact that the Judge heads the lists,
and that Rhett, if not beaten out-and-out, is
chosen by a low majority, has its significance.
It is what no one wonld have dreamed of as
.possible in Charleston, ten days ago. It is a
Oct which should hero be stated, that this op
position to Rhett & Co. had not developed it
self in an organized form forty-eight hoars
before tho opening of the polls. Could there
hare been a week’s time, I will not undertake
-josay that a positive Union party would not
have developed itself in South Carolina. ~
j “ When the real state of things in Charles*
1 ton comes to be understood in the country
portion of the Stale, the effect will be impor
tant.* It is foreshadowed already In the sur
prise which gentlemen from the country now
here express. They had been taught to believe
■'That Charleston was a unit in favor of the ex
trema policy of precipitation; that the old
cooperation policy had died oat. and that
however other parts of the State might doubt,
there would bo no use hanging back. Charles
ton exerts a powerful influence over the entire
State, and never more so than In the present
crisis. The actual state of things now devel
oped hero will give the country license to
t liink. Hitherto nobody has enjoyed that pri
vilege byt the leaders.”

gerheads with the Legislature. The' Gover
nor, it appears. In the message vetoing the bank
suspension bill, intimated that some of the
members had been bribed. A few days ago
the Governor sent in an explanatory message,
iu which he substantially alleges that if they
had been innocent of bribery, they never
would have misconstrued him. They, in turn,
lave resented it by a unanimous vote of con
demnation, as follows:

Parson Brownlow, of the Knoxville UAu/, is
evidently not “inlove” with the secessionists,
m the following little dipping from his paper
amply demonstrates:
This machine of government, so delicate
and complex in its structure, and which cost
Us great architects so much labor andthought,
tomuch oflhcspritof concession and com
promise, and our fathers so much of blood and
treasure, is to be broken to pieces, to gratify
a set of corrupt, ambitious and disappointed
demagogues, who find that they can never
preside over these United States, and hence
they seek to build up one or more contempti
ble southern confederacies, and to place them
selves nt the head of these. The fiddling and
dancing of Nero, while Rome .was enveloped in
Jlamcs, was not more .brutal, hellish, stupid
mid wicked, than is the conduct of these coun
try-destroying, God-defying, aud bell-deserving
traitors to their country, who write and talk
thus flippantly of the most momentous event
that the human mind can conceive!
Florida was ceded to the United States
by Spain about forty years ago, in considera

valuation of the fractious Stats Is only $49,000,-
000, and yet her people complain of being mal
treated, and vow they will secede.

The Case of the Illinois Sheriff at New
Orleans. -
[From the N. O. Crescent, 6th.]
Deopped Like a Hot Potato.—A well
known and respectable produce merchant of
this city was, bsl Monday evening, arrested
upon acquisition from the Governor of Illi
nois, and the warrant of the Governor of Loui
siana, and taken away that same evening, lie
surrendered so quietly, and sold so little be
fore leaving, that his friends had no idea of his
arrest. After he left, in custody of the Illinois
Deputy Sheriff, the facts became known to a
certain extent, and there was much talk and
excitement about town.
Friends of the abducted merchant, not en
tirely understanding the business, requested
us and the other reporters not to make any
publication till the whole thing should be
known. We consented, not so much in a spirit
of accommodation, as from a desire to report
knowingly, if wc did report anything, and be
cause we had no certified facts as to the why
or wherefore of this extraordinary proceeding;
all owing to the silence of the merchant him
self when ho went away.
Wc now bear, that when the Illinois officer
and his prisoner readjpd Vicksburg, some
facts os to the arrest hkd been telegraphed
then:, and the gallant Vicksburgers took it
upon themselves to inquire -why an officer
from Abe Lincoln's State was dragging north
ward a well known and responsible merchant
of New Orleans. The inquiry was followed
with sudden results. The Illinois officer nar
rowly escaped lynching, and was glad enough
io slope without his prisoner. The merchant
was treated with all kindness and polite
ness, and will probably be laughin'' over
rim adventure with his friends In this city to
ibcrc was a civil lawsuit of some years
standing between our man and a man In
Illinois, who were once associated in the
steamboat business. There were lawsuits
on both sides, as we hear, in New Orleans
and in Cairo. Latterly the Cairo man. in his
suit, obtained judgment against tbc New Or
leans man for some two or three thousand
dollars: and tho latter, having uo sellable
properly in Illinois, was. upon some finding
a little stronger than that of mere indebted
ness, sent for, and arrested and taken away,
as abovo narrated.
Alexander Norton, produce merchant of
Poydras street, was the man taken away, and
r>o suddenly dropped at Vicksburg. His ene
my in the law doings was one Davis, with
whom he once had an interest in the steamer

Words of Prophecy and Patriotism.
[From the Illinois State Journal.]
In December, 3SUO, it appears, by the turning
over of some old newspaper tiles, a political
discussion took place at the hall of the House
of Representatives in Springfield, between Mr.
Lincoln, who was then a Whig leader, and
Messrs. Douglas and Lnmbom, who were Dem
ocrats. It will be remembered that that was
about the commencement of the enthusiastic
campaign of IS4O, and which resulted in the
defeat of Mr. Van Burcu for the Presidency.
We copy from the concluding part of Mr. Lin
coln's speech, the following eloquent outburst
of patriotism and devotion to principle. Said
•‘Mr. Lambom refers to the late elections
in the States, and from their results, confident-
Iv predicts that every State lu the Union will
vote for Mr. Van Bures at the next Presiden
tial election. Address that argument to cow
ards aud to knaves; with the free and the
brave it will effect nothing. It maybe true;
if it must, let it. Many free countries Lave
lost their liberty, aud curs may lose hers; but
it the shall, be it my proudest plume, not that
I was the last to desert, but that I never de
serted her. I know that the grc*t volcano at

spirit that reigns there, is belching forth the

the imps of the evil spirit, and fiendishly
taunting all those who dare resist its destroy
ing course, with of their cf
fort, and knowing >#is» I cannot deny that all
may be swept awayl ' Broken by it, 1 too, may
be; bow to it, I never wilL
“The probability Dial we mav fall in the
struggle, ought* not to deter ns from the sup
port of a cause which we deem to be just; it
shall not deter me. If ever I feel the soul

sions not wholly unworthy of its • Almighty
architect, it Is wncnlcQntemplatcthe cause of
dr countrr, deseifjd by all the world besides,
audl standing un boldly and alone, and hurl

without contemplating consequences, before
high Heaven, and la the lace of the world, I
swear eternal fidelity to ths just cause, as I
deem it, of the land of my life, my liberty, and
my love. And who, that thinks with me, will
not fearlessly adopt the oath that I take. Let
none falter, who thinks he is right, and we may
succeed. But, If after all we shall fall, be it
so. We shall have the proud consolation of
saying to onr conscience, and to the departed

A Nsw Breed or Sheep.—A report lias late
ly been made to the Society of Acclimation of
AnimnU in Londcn, of a new breed of sheep,
or at least npimaU resembling sheep* except m
sire, found in countries adjacent to the run
janb, India. The animals arc called Purik
sheep, »nd hfte the most diminutive of the ovis
funify, the fall grown ones being not larger
than lambs of ‘Vfew weeks old. The Purik
sheep baa small ajouc?, a fleshy carcase, the
mutton is excellent* and It yields three pounds
a year of veiy fine wooL The ewes generally
give two lambs a year. The great advantage of
thj<? over other breeds is its domestic habits—
living around the cottages as quiet as a bouse
dog, and feeding upon all sorts of waste gar
bage, scraps of fruit, vegetables, crombs of
bread, shreds that are frequently wanted; eat
ing them from thehands of anyone who offers.
It is thought that the Purik sheep would be
salted lothe climate of England, and exactly
adapted to the wants of many cottagers. If so.
It wonld also salt many in this country- It
would bo a great object to get an animal to
consume the kitchen garble, less objection
able tb*n the hog, and the ilesh of which wonld
afford a more wholesome food to the common
people, too many of whom live, so far as meat
is concerned, almost exclusively upon pork.
It is supposed that this kind or sheep would
make rather Interesting pets, of which children
would be particularly- fond; and we approve
anything in** would be likely to displace
worthless dogs In their affections* and at the
lame time add to their happiness.

The people of this State Lave bad cause for
thanksgiving on account of the success which
has attended the tilling of their fields, nnd the
other pursuits of their industry, during the
past year, but I have information from the
most authentic and reliable sources that the

ing from the failure of their crops, and that
the scanty supplies cf their harvests will re
duce them to laminc during the coming win
ter, unless assisted by contributions from
abroad; it seems proper to me, therefore, that
from our abundance wc should give to the re
lief of their distress, and in accordance with
this view, I, John Wood, Governor of;the
State of Illinois, appoint Sunday, the C3d day
•■f December, instant, os a day of especial effort
iu behalf of this humane and Christian object;
nnd X would recommend to the ministers in
charge of the various churches throughout the
State (where such effort has not already been
made) that upon that day they present this ob.
jeet to their congregations, andsolieit contri-

Coaid the Sad Disasters by the Recent
Severe Storm liave been Avoided ?
The New York Commercial
article on the recent severe gale and disasters,
It will be remembered by some of our read
ers that on Friday It began to rain here, and
(luring the hlght the storm increased in sever
ity, the wind blowing from the south-east until j
after sunrise the next day. In the morning it
changed to the north-west, and so continued
for a lime; but during the day and evening it
chopped round to the south-west, blowing ex
ceedingly cold; while nearly every speck of
cloud disappeared from the heavens. Early in
the morning th;ce different currents were ob
served at once moving in the atmosphere,
within a distance of probably not more than
two miles from the point of observation,
in the space ot twelve hours the thermometer
fell over 50 degrees.
Now, all accounts from the lake regions rep
resent that the storm blew from the vest. At
Buffalo, it broke out about one o’clock, A M.,
on Saturday; at Oswego somewhat later, in
both places, as well as others still further
North, snow fell abundantly. In the neighbor
hood of Watertown, It Is now from twelve to
eighteen inches In depth.
The conclusion appears to be that the cen-*
ire of the storm, i. e. the part where most rain
or snow fell, and toward which the wind blew
from every point, was between New York and
Buffalo, probably in the region of the moun
tains; that it moved toward the Northeast,
and its course became more severe and de
structive; and tluit this motion drew after if
the regular Northwest blast, so that it was felt
in this region as If proceeding from the South
west. But it was the old, original, dry, cold,
unrelenting Northwester, nevertheless; only
altering its course somewhat to fill up the va
cuum made it the nucleus of the storm, in its
passage along a line nearly parallel with that
of the sea coast.
For nearly two weeks previously we had
been favored with mild weather, during which
time the atmosphere was filled with moisture
from the ocean,inviting, at this season of the
year, a violent collision. Every day’s delay
would probably make it only ihc more de
structive. AH that required, then, on Friday
morning, was the receipt of telegraph dls
p itches at the great lakes and elsewhere, stat
ing the character and direction of the wind
currents, points from one to two thousand
miles apart. We believe It will be found that
the storm raged on Lakes Superior, Michigan,
, aud Huron, many hours before it was fell at
Buffalo. It will probably be found, too, that
the telegraph could have been employed to
give warning us far West as Detroit, if not
Milwaukee, of the approaching visitor; all that
was wanted was some person sufficiently fa
miliar with tlie philosophy of the winds to
calculate when aud where the storm would
make Its appearance.
This journal has repeatedly called attention
to the subject of atmospheric currents, for the
purpose of showing that the storm is as much
the subject of fixed laws as the growth of the
oak or the phases of the moon. Let these Be
correctly understood, and the telegraph be
regularly cmploved to report them from the
most distant points, and hundreds of lives, as
well as millions worth of property, may yet
•n: saved every year, by the simple instrumen
tality of a system of signals along our sea
coast and on the Western lakes, it Is time
that Chambers of Commerce and Boards of
Underwriters gave this subject the attention
which it deserves.
Bast Indian Cotton.
[From the N, Y, Economist.]
The cotton-supply movement in England
has at last taken a decidedly practical turn.
After a great deal of random'speechifying and
iiitlatcd writing, with not a little Quixotic ac
tion also, the men of Manchester have deter
mined ou showing their fidth in their theories
by their works. At Icngiha bona-tidc corpo
ration Is launched, styled the “Cotton Com
panyj’ (limited), with u capital of $500;1)00, and
thirteen directors, the pick of the cotton lords
of Manchester. The object of the Company is
to dovclopethc cotton trade of India, confin
ing its operations chicily to the district of
Dharwar. The prospectus ol the Company
thus describes its intended operations; “The
first efforts of the Company will be directed to
tnc cotton-growing district of Dharwar, in the
Bombay Presidency. The urgent representa
tions of tbc Cotton-Supply Association have
Induced the Indian government to commence
the construction of a x»ier and harbor at Scdos
uevaghur, and also a road seventy miles in :
lengtu, leading from that port into the heart
of the cotton district. In Dharwar. 1.50,000 acres
of American cotton are now grown, the value
of which cotton, in the Liverpool market is
13d to Old per lb. At present this cotmu is
used only for mixing with the native variety,
to give it value in the Bombay market. It is
intended that the company should establish
itself In Dharwar for the purpose of buying
: this cotton direct tromthe grower, cleaning,
packing, and shipping it from Scdos'-evaghur
direct to this country- By offering a fair price
to the ryot for this cotton, it is the opinion of
Dr. Forbes that the area under cultivation may
bo rapidly and extensively augmented.”
The prospectus sets forth at great length the
reasons that have led to the formation of tbc
company. It is asserted that the efforts of the
Cotton-Supply Association have demonstrated
“the important fact that India, Africa, Aus
tralia, South America anil other quarters of
the world can and will furpish cotton in un
limited quantity and of excellent staple.” The
position of the United States in relation to the
supply is thus alluded to: “Our dependence
nnon America lor four-fifths of our supplies,
gives to that country a virtual monopoly,which
3. An annual excess in outlay of eight to tin
millions sterling forthc cotton we consume.
i The perpetuation of a system of stive la
bor, liable to interruption from disease, insur
rection, and other causes.
h. A periodic or chronic anxiety, arising
from the dread of injury to the crop by frosts,
disease, worm, drought, inundation, and many
other acciden’s from climatic causes.
4. A constant liability to frauds, from adul
terations with sand, dust, Ac.
5. A consequent and serious fluctnaiion iu
our total annual supplies.”
The company proposes to introduce ma
chinery into India for the purposes of cleaning
and racking cotton, which it is supposed will
ns.if»‘rlully improve its quality aud price. Nt
co-luions have been opened with the Govern
in'Mt. of India, which has promised to meet the
of the company, by making grants of
i::nd lor buddings and oilier necessary purpo
-c -. aud to generally aid the prosecution of
ike c!ilcrpri»c. The projectors estimate that
theveau place a cotton eqnal to American hi
Liverpool at 4d.per lb, and sell it at fid., thus
realizing a profit of 50 per cent, on their
outlay! ♦
