MONDAY, MARCH 4* 1861, THE FINAL BEMANB. The laws ;in the Statutes-at-laige are those which the Democracy have enacted. They have been, almost without exception* approved by Democratic Presidents and Democratic Cabinets. The Democracy have a majority in the next Congress—in twlh Houses; and these laws cannot be changed without their consent. Where, then, is the chance for oppression by the power which a Republican President will ■wield? How can he, alone and unsup ported by Congress, control the policy of the nation? How can he touch the institu tion of Slavery or any of the collateral matters which influence it? These few questions disclose the barrenness and base lessness of the pretensions which the Se cessionists put forth, and show, to the satisfaction of all fair-minded men, that Secession is the outbreak' of an old plot, and that the election of Lincoln and the rule of the Republicans are but the pretence for a crime long ago matured and now consummated,. What, we ask, have we to offer to such men in the way of compromise, which they, up to their eyes in conspiracy, would be willing to accept and assume.once more the loyal ty that they have cast off! They tell us un equivocally: Change the public senti ment of the North—call man-selling right, permit it, as a right, everywhere, and the South will be content. Again, the inquiry comes—what Republican desires a settle ment upon terms like these ? "LEAVING IT TO THE COURTS.” " The Republican victory would he incom plete if it did not promise sooner or later to reform the United States Supreme Court That bench-full of Southern law yers* which gentlemen of a poetical tem perament call an “ august tribunal*” is the last entrenchment behind which Despot ism is sheltered; and until a National Con vention amends the Constitution so as to defeat the usurpations of that body, or un til the Court itself is reconstituted by the dropping off of a few of its members, and the appointment of better men in their places, we have little to hope for by Con gressional action in the way of restricting slavery. “ Leave it to the Courts,” is, sine* *• the Dred Scott decision was announced, the favorite dodge of the propagandists. Mr. Franklin seems to have picked it up— that defunct electioneering trick of Dong'- las—and incorporated it into His amend ments to the Guthrie proposition finally adopted by the Peace Conference. “Wc u will establish slavery south of 36 deg. 30 11 min.says he, “so that neither Congress “nor the Territorial Legislature shall have “ power to drive It out; and finally, after “ doing this* we will leave it to the Federal 41 Courts—the Supreme Court,” which, mis interpreting the Constitution as it is, and disregarding all the legislative and judicial history of the past, has already decided that slavery exists in all the Territories! The duty of the Court, if that "proposition, were incorporated into the Constitution, would be easy. Patting out of the way, the decision already made, and the known disposition of the majority of the judges to make any other decision required by the exigencies of the Slave Power, the Court, we assert* would have' no latitude of opin ion. By the express terms of the amend ment, the condition of the Territory to which it applies, is fixed; and not even the men who made the judgment in the case of Dred Scott would have the audacity to change it by judicial decree. Yet this Is the poor trick by which the extension of slavery is to be justified, and for resisting which Republicans are branded as fanatics and disturbers of the public peace. In Illinois, that dodge was killed off when Lincoln, who, more effectually than any other man, has exposed it, received 12,000 majority for President It cannot be re vived now, even by menace. WHAT THE? WILL SAT. The argument urged against the North is this:, 44 You imported the slaves and sold “them to ns. They came in ships, fitted “ out by your capital, manned by your sail ers, and the money proceeds of the car “ goes went into your pockets! What arc “ you making a fuss about slaveiy for ? It “Is as much your institution as ours. If it u is a sin, as you say it is, take your share 44 of it and let us alone. Don’t be mean it “you can’t be just!” This is the Democrt ic and the Southern position, and though the deductions from the admitted facts arc not warranted, they satisfy thousands of people, who need that or some other ex cuse to justify their political action. Suppose that we make a “compromise” with these slaveholders now, establish and protect slavery anywhere, if but in a single township, or a solitary family,— what will be the cry when the South makes the next demand ? Why this; “What “ arc you of the North blathering about “n£w? Did notyou plant it in the Terri tories south of 36° 30’? Had you not “the majority; are not you respon sible then? Has not the institution “your endorsement? Dare you say it is “ wrong, and thereby admit that you have “ forced a wrong upon others? You arc “not that kind of men. 41 We accepted “ 3'our action in good iaith, and thanked “you for it; and now we hold you to the im principle upon which it was hosed. If “slavery is not wrong in New Mexico, it is 41 not wrong in Illinois and the other free “ States; hence your resistance to what : We “ n&k—ifie right to have and hold daze 11 property anywhere—is absurd, and “we will dissolve the Union before we will 44 submit to it!” Such, we say, would he fair and strictly logical results of the premises which the compromisers assume—results from which the North could not escape. We ask, who among the Republicans, be lieving that slavery is a crime against'the white race and the black—a thing to be en dured where it is established, but not ex tended—wants to occupy that degrading position? Who among them, if willing to perpetuate slavery anywhere by his vote, does not sec that it would be far more de cent, honorable and just to establish it in the free States, which have Representa tives in Congress, who may resist the in fliction, than in a Territory, the people of which are powerless by their situation? Who does not see that the one thing aimed at is a recognition, and endorsement of slavery in the Federal Constitution; and that such recognition and endorsement can not be permitted without a logical surren der of the whole controversy. Do the Re publicans wantitclosed in that way ! SIATE EKDOBSESieNTS OF U. S. . BQMIS, ’ The recent endorsement of the bonds of the United States by several of the State Governments, and the actual repayment of money into the Federal Ticaauiy,by others, (Illinois being In the. latter category), re quire a few words of explanation to be understood by those whose recollection of public events does not run back to 1836. In the latter part of that year the United States Treasury was choked with a surplus of $42,468,859.88. There being nb ,J3u ebanans, Floyds or Cohbs at lhe head of government in those'days, it became a se ’ridus"question how to unlock t.hfe vast amount of dead capital, and get it back ihip the channels of .trade. It was;finally determined to distribute the surplus ip the various States in the; form of: a deposit in their respective Treasuries. Accordingly .an act adopted by Cdngress providing thtt'&einoney.-which should be in the un the first day of Janu ary, 1837, reserving the sumof $5,000,000, •should be deposited with such of the Stales (according to their representation in Con gress) as should,-by law, authorize their Treasurera to issue certificates, of deposit therefor, expressing the usual and legal obligations and pledging the faith of the State for the repaynient thereof, when ever the SecfelaVy of the Trcasuiy should requite the same to meet appropriations of Congress. The amount to he distributed ■was $37,468,859.88, to be paid over to the States in four equal instalments on the first days of January, April* July and October. The first three to $28,101,644.01, were paid, but the fourth, amounting to $0,867,31407* was withheld —the lederal government then needing the money. Under the operation of; the act the following sums were distributed to the several Stales: State . ATfibimt State. Amount distributed. distributed.

Nearly all the Northern States have responded either by authorizing their' Governors to guarantee the- bond?, or by issuing their own bonds for the amounts-in which they stand in debted to the general government NOT SATISFIED. The. Chicago Timet is of the opinion that the action of the Peace Conference* proposing to legalize slavery in all territoiy south of 36 deg. 80 min. does not meet the case at all* and it hints very broadly that nothing will suit the exigency which does not prescribe the same horrid rule for dH future acquisitions of territory / For the purpose of reaching a definite un derstanding, we * would ask the Timet to state exactly what would be satisfactory. The Breckinridge platform in the recent’ campaign was altogether an anti-slavery document, as compared with the voracious requirements of the Times . Everything for the nigger, provided he is owned and flogged by a white man, and nothing for the white man unless he owns and flogs a nigger—seems to he the animus ot that sheet. We arc gradually reaching the true issue of na tional politics, and we should be pleased to see the Democracy of Illinois take the field on the sort of platform winch the Times is now busy in erecting. Sngar Cane Grower* 9 Convention in Bureau' County. Pursuant to & public notice a convention of the sugar cane growers, of Bureau county assembled at Bacon & White’s Hall, in Prince lon, on the 21st nit, Dr. N.Bort, Chairman, and E. 8. Phelps, Secretary. Dr. Bort thought that good syrup, kept in a warmplace, where it will not freeze, will gran ulate into sugar. He exhibited some thus kept The Doctor raised considerable syrup in 1860, and was very confident that its culti vation would pay the farmer liberally. Hart N. Morris manufactured 1,000 gallons of syrup from six acres of cane. He exhibited some very nice syrup. He cut his cane October ,13th, placed.it in a large pile, underja shed at the north slde-of his- ham, and kept it dry He worked it up on, the 15th of,Noveinber. He feels confident that if cane is cutup before a hard frost it will keep for months, and will make excellent syrup, if only kept dry. It ■ should be put in when there is no dew on it. Mr. Giles said that green cane, cut up In the middle of September, and kept in a pile, not covered, mid worked in the middle of No vember, would make good syrup, and he ex hibited. samples thus made which were es : teemed better than that obtained from green cane just cut. - Mr. Morris thought cane raised on barrens made better syrup than from any other land, and in this Mr. Choate agreed. He thought coil much better than wood to boil with, as it produced quicker .evaporation and made . better syrup. He took the first premium for syrup at the County Fair in 1860, and he used coal instead of wood for evaporation. O. W. Giles manufactured 1,600 gallons of syrup in 1860. .He was of opinion that much depended on securing the com before hard frost, even if cut green. Jos. H. Brigham exhibited syrup made from Sorghum, Imphee, and Sugar Millet In his estimation the last named will prove the best variety. He thinks large canes not so rich as i smaller ones. He used four sheet iron pans . set on an arch, and made a barrel of syrup in • six hours. He made i,4OG gallons in all in 1860. John Masters manufactured SOO gallons of syrup. He exhibited some syrup from So r ghum, and some from Imphee. The Inf phee cane was frozen solid. When ground the juice looked like soap suds; and he did not suppose it would make anything, hut conclud ed to try it He bolle? it until he thought it would do for syrup. When cool, to his utter astonishment, it proved to be about one-third . sugar. He was confident sorghum would not produce sugar in such a state.. He thinks the only difficulty in making sugar .from Imphee is in getting it dry. Various persons estimated the cost of rais ing, and manufacture of syrup atfrom 20 to 40 cents per gallon. Those who had seen syrup manufactured by steam thought that the best and cheapest mode, as it would make cleaner syrup than pans. ■ All agreed that the syrup in cooking should be well cleansed and that made from frozen cane was apt to bum to the bottom of the pans, while no difficulty was experienced in this respect from that not frozen. Johnßelangec had planted his cane and corn Eideby side very early. Both came up well; but hard frosts cut the com down completely, while it left the cane nninjored. E. S. Phelps, Jr., .had the same experience as Mr. Belangee. In 1859 his com, vines, &c., were completely killed by the frost, while his Sorghum was not hurt. L. C. Field of Galesburg had a friend who planted his cane in a hot bed, and when about six inches high transplanted it into a field. He raised the beet crop of cane he had ever seen. ■ ~ E. JS. Phelps, Jr., had transplanted consider able in 1860 with decided success. It was as easy to transplant as cabbages. He trans planted in dry, hot weather, when cabbages .would have died, and most of it grew well. The necessity of having better machinery and arrangements for manufacture was dis cussed at considerable length. And courage -and perseverance was recommended to all. O. W. Giles of Wyanet, Hart N.. Morris of Arispe, and Samuel L. Choate of Indian town, were appointed a committee to have ihc sub* ject in charge for the ensuhg year. In regard to the above ConventionTlhe Bu reau County jScpxtblican from whose report we condense the aboveproceedings, says: There certainly can no longer be any doubt entertained of the ultimate success of cane growing in this county. Our farmers, during the' post four years, have given much atten .tiohtb this new branch of agricultural indus try, and the result , has been that within the last two years nearly, If not quite, one-half the .syrup consumed In the county has been manu factured at home. The quality of the syrup exhibited at the late convention was equal to the best golden syrup from New Orleans, free from any unpleasant flavor, and more pleasing .to ouftastc than any other syrup except the maple. Mu John Masters of Dover brought us two gallons, made by himself, which cannot be surpassed in any market. Mr. Masters i also made some very handsome sugar. There ; was a large amount of cane lost, owing to the ; scarcity of the mills, Messrs. Miller & Christ man sold about one hundred, they were able to manufacture.. We trust .there will bo mills sufficient for the coining season. Mr.. Corwin?* Amendment to the Con< filiation.

BUmal Ttmc—CommiMioneni to Appointed for T* Repuollcan* Not Farm Mortgage Bill m tbe Leglalatnjre. [Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.] . . MjLuisok, Wls., Feb. 23, 18G1. The Union Convention, called w by order of the Democratic Caucus,” ostensibly to send Commissioners to the PeacH Congress, met on Tuesday evening.l thought of sending you a fall account by the next mail, but concluded it would hardly pay to devote a whole letter to the subject, and therefore waited till there was something else to write about. Hon. N. H. Virgin, a conservative Republi can Senator, who has voted constantly to send Commissioners, was nominated Chairman, but declined the honor; whereupon Chas. D Rob. inson of Green Bay was called to the Chair, end James Armstrong of Janesville chosen Secretary. Geo.’ B. Smith,' Attorney General under the Barstow administration, from a committee of five Democrats appointed by the legislative caucus, reported a preamble and resolutions “ os a basis of action for the Union and con servative men of the State in the present time of National danger.” Setting forth that the country is on the brink of civil war, only to be averted u by prudent and decisive action that “ Virginia, which gave Wisconsin to the Union, had Invited a conferencethat before entering on a “ contest which must come ii all efforts at conciliation shonldlail,” it is a “para mount duty to be certain of the righteonstiess of our cause, and that in arming against rebel lion, we should clear our hands of injustice and disloyalty—if was recommended to re solve: 1. That five commissioners be appointed to meet those of Virginia in “an earnest effort to adjust the present unhappy controversies in the spirit In which the Constitution was formed and consist ently with its principles,” and requesting that said commissioners be admitted; 2. That justice would dictate before resorting to coercive measures to compel obedience to thelaws on the part oLany of our sister States, our statute book? ehould'fce purifiedof “ acts which make obe dience to a irortion of the Federal laws criminal,” and requesting repeal of such parts of the Personal Liberty and Reform Acts as conflict with the Uni ted States Constitution and Laws. S.That if bo deplorable a calamity should befall ne, asthatallthemeasnresof peace and efforts for conciliation should hopelessly fail, and having done our whole dnty to avoid fraternal strife and civil war, we will then array ourselves with all thefriends Of the government for its preservation, and , with Vie last defenders of the integrity and flag of the Union * will fulfill our whole duty as citizens of the United States. Hon- H. S. Orton, Circuit Judge and Captain of the Dane Cavalry—so warm an admirer of Seward- that because he was not nominated, he voted for Buchanan in *56 and. for Bell in ’6o—spoke in response to loud calls. Tn» re marks consisted of severe denunciations of those who underrated the danger, cried peace and dared to ridicule gatherings dubbed Union meetings; the highest eulogy of Senator Sew ard and his recent speeches, and an appeal to endorse him, os a common ground on which all could stand, a proposal which called out a tremendous aye; and advocacy of the policy of masterly inactivity toward the seceding States, where, as the speaker held, Federal X)roperty had been taken traitorous possession of, and arms supplied through high treason on the part of government officers. Regarding the territorial question as no longer a practical one, he said he was ready to do or yield any thing to restore the Union. E. 6. Ryan, Democrat, of Milwaukee, who was next called on, had- little hope, mourned, over the dissolution of the Union, but felt that tears would do nothing to save it He insisted that compromise on both sides (as in all the relations of life) was a necessity. The glori ous destiny to which all had looked forward was gambled away. Secession was a iact. Only one set of the United States laws —the postal —were executed in several States, and that on the principle of spoiling the enemy. Other States would follow if the doctrine of no con cession was adopted. Coercion could not save the Union. He had some hope left in Seward, whose recent speeches were in Wonderfully good temper and spirit He believed Lincoln was a manjof great resolution, calmness, pa tience, firmness and integrity, without a parti cle of fanaticism or a drop of coward or bitter blood in a heart full of love to every American citizen. He did not vote for him, but relied on his patriotism and was ready to second his Administration- He wanted Republicans to refrain from expressing their extreme opinions, if they had to put a gag in their mouths. The other speeches were of much lower tone and ability. Moses M. Strong, famous in Land Grant times, confessing it was no great sacri fice for Democrats to do so, since they were whipped, wanted the Republicans to yield their principles, and arraigned them for their past course. He was unwilling even to call Seces sionists hard names. Like a drowning man he was ready to catch at the straw of sending commissioners. He appeared surprised that Democrats’sincerity was suspected! If Lin coln took up the policy indicated by Seward, be was ready to “be a Lincoln man or any any kind of a man you please.” Geo. 8.. Smith expressed disappointment that Republicans had not united in this meet ing, though he had feared such a result when it was proposed. Hi* righteous soul bad been vexed and his sensitive nature hurt at charges of mercenary and partisan purpose in calling this meeting. He quoted Jacksou against coercion, insisted on compromise, though he would not say what; offered to give his bond that the Republicans should never be charged with backing down, if they made concessions to save the Union; predicted that Lincoln would recommend non-intervention with se ceding States, and that after his inaugural there would oe very few for war, and avowed his readiness to follow Lincoln and Seward in saving the Union. An u old fogy ” Democrat wanted to know how Lincoln could decline executing the laws when he swore to do so; hut could not get any satisfactory answer. Mr. Warner, an un compromising Republican, desiring to see what manner of spirit the meeting was of, when such a readiness was expressed to do any thing to save the Union, proposed to fill the blank in the resolution appointing Com missioners, with the names of Doolittle, Howe, Washburn, Potter and Hanchett. This was greeted with storms of hisses , and after some passages between himself and members of the Convent ion, was ruled out. Senator Bean, a radical Republican, mixed in, repelled the charge that Republicans loved party more than country, and referred to the recent sup port by the Northern Democracy of a rank disunionist, H. V. Johnson, and charged that their misrepresentation of the principles and objects of the Republican party bad caused the existing state of things. They were reap ing the reward of their own doings. He closed by repeating the Jacksonian sentiment incor porated in the Chicago platform, “The Federal Union—it must and shall be preserved,’’which was greeted with enthusiastic applause. After some further talk, a Committee to nominate Commissioners was appointed, from each congressional district. About half of the Committee appointed were Republicans, but only one or two acted. They reported Marshal M. Strong, M. C Darling, J. HL Tweedy, H, L. Douiman and Nelson Dewey, Commissioners, none of whom were present at the meeting, and requested them to proceed to Washington, unless the Legislature appointed this week! They were 1 requested to go decidedly a day after the fair, and 1 think I see them “on their winding way,” now that the Conference has adjourned. Smith’s resolutions were adopted. The object of the meeting—to divide and distract Republicans—despite of much eulogy of Republican - loaders, much tender entreaty, many honied words, impassioned gestures and professions of patriotism, was not accomp • llshed. The professed purpose of the meeting was scarcely alluded to and skillfully evaded. The thing was managed entirely by politicians like those whose names appear in the proceed ings—Beriab Brown, Lot Clark, LaDue, Fred. • Horn, C. K. Lord, A. Hyatt Smith, and others whose faces are familiar at Democratic Con ventions. As it is the only meeting of the kind here this winter, I have endeavored to give an idea of its spirit. The Farm Mortgage Relief hill was taken up in the Assembly yesterday, and occupied the attention of that body through a session protracted till the middle of the afternoon, i A determined effort was made to pass it to a ' final vote, but though it seemed to haveama • jority, the previous question could not be ■ brought to bear, cutting off amendments and i choking debate. A substitute was offered by Mr. Clark, simply providing that the question • of fraud might be tried before a jury in every case, and that the books and papers’ of i railroad companies should ho open to < inspection. This was finally voted down ; alter a good deal of filibustering. The bill i was advocated by Messrs. Moore, Johnson, : Webb, Frisby, and others, Clarke, Cavcrno, ; Bradford, Spooner, Reed, Knapp, Bailey and i others opposed it in its present shape. It was i urged that it was legislating for a class, pre i Burning fraud in every case; admitting the al - legations of one side and refusing testimony i ot the other; was a most iniquitous attempt 5 at repudiation, an ungodly abomination, and would inflict great hardship on widows, or phans. men of small property, and others whose means had been invested in these as first-class -securities. Mr. Bradford showed how many • had given these-mortgages-with their eyes • open, and forewarned that they might have to pay them. The Chicago Tribune and other authority was read to show what effect such legislation would have on the credit of the State. Many who do not &t all approve the bill, vote for it because demanded by their constitu ents, or in the hope that it may bring about an equitable compromise with the holders of the mortgages.. . Representatives of- the Farm Mortgage League and others are here urging the bul, and there is also a lobby against It. * The sis regiment war bill was tabled in the Senate yesterday. Plus. Visit of Jeff. Davis to HaJ. Anderson* -A gentleman who arrived here by the steam er Columbia, and who professed to bo well in formed on the subject, states that shortly after the arrival of Hon. JtifC Davis at Charleston, it was quietly arranged for him to pay a visit to Fort Sumter, which was accomplished pri vately. The interview is represented to have been an earnest and prolonged one, but all not Immediately in the secret were left wholly to conjecture os to what took place between him and Major Anderson: It has, however, been knowingly given out at Charleston that there will be «o fight at Fort Sttmter— great stress evi dently being placed' upon the fact that these two old acquaintances in the army cannot bo brought into bloody conflict with each other; On the other hand, it is believed that if the al leged visit had elicited any particular comfort for the great leader of the secession-movement, such good news wouldhot have been kept for private consumption merely.—JV.

The Rev. C. C. Hutchinson, agent of the New York Kansas Relief Committee, in his memorial to the New York State.Legislatnre, which is endorsed by'the entire New York Committee, shows that “Jive hundred and seventy-seven thousand nine hundred and seven teen bushels will be needed for seed and food, which must be transported to the interior, and at least one-third must be carried to those who cannot haul it* and at a distance from fifty to two hundred miles, at an average cost of 25 cents perbusheb” Tho Territorial Legislature of Kansas unani mously adopted a memorial to Congiess, and the State Legislatures, from which I quote the following: “ Not less than thirty thousand persons are now and will be dependent for subsistence,upon outside resources, until oar next harvest, and, in addition to the need of provisions and clothing, a large amount of seed wheat, cor i and potatoes will be required at an early day, or the citizens of Kansas must, to some extent, remain beneficiaries upon eastern liberality for the year to come. The snow, which has fallen in immense quantities all over our country, burying beneath the reach of our stock principal source of subsistence which remained for them—in the dry grass of the prairies—must inev itably cause the death, by starvation, of a large portion of our cattle, while, at the same time the roads are rendered impassible aud the people ex posed to greatly increased privation and snifering, from the difficulty of reaching the points where food is to be obtained; from these causes we have great reason to apprehend that cor condition In the spring must be most helpless, and hopeless,-with out a liberal and prompt response to this appeal. 1 ’ The foregoing estimate and appeal will give some' idea of the wants of the people of Kan sas. The estimates which have boen made are simply for bread and seed. If to this is added enough to purchase a few groceries and medicines for the sick and feeble, and shoes and necessary clothing, we find the amount required, adding the freights and expenses of hauling, will not fall short of one million of dollars. It is a question of life or death with hundreds of those poor creatures in the dis tant interior who cannot escape, and to whom bread must be carried or starvation will be their terrible fate. All the private contribu tions, with the legislative aid, that can be ob tained will be necessary to save the peo ple.

In behalf of those suffer ing thousands whose miseries 1 witnessed in my late trip into the interior of that afflicted country, I ask for a continuance of the liberal donations for their relief Potatoes wiR be required for eating and for seed. Many persons are threatened with scur vy. Potatoes, os a diet, arc well adapted to prevent and cure it. All who can furnish them are requested to inform the undersigned, and if they cannot furnish gunnies to ship in, let me know and we will supply them, and give directions how to ship. All other seeds should bs shipped as directed in my last report. I have been asked if grass seed is needed. I answer yes. In September I traveled through Kansas and at various places tested the prai rie grass, and found it dead, root and off, and tbe ground perfectly dry for a foot in depth. I fear the only grass for stock this summer will be found on the bottoms and in the timber. Let those who have grass seed to spare, send it, and please mark the variety so that it can be known and sent forward to be sown. W. F. M. Aunt, General Shipping Agent for Kansas Relief.

Henry Clay on Bhett« According to the report in the Benton abridgement of debates, vol. 16, p. 554, Henry Clay thus spoke, in 1850, respecting a South Carolinian, now quite notorious: Mr. President: I said nothing with respect to the character of Mr. Rhett, lor I might as well name him. But if he pronounced a sen timent attributed to him, of raising the stand ard of disunion and of resistance to the com mon government, whatever he has been, if he follows up that declaration by corresponding overt acts, we will he a traitor, and I hope HE WILL MEET THE FATE OF A TRAITOR. [Great applause in the galleries, with difficulty sup pressed by the chair.] Mr. Clay resumed: Mr. President: I have heard with pain and regret a confirmation of the remark 1 made, that the sentiment of disunion is becoming familiar. I hope it is confined to South Caro lina. Ido not regard as my duty what the honorable Senator seems to regard as his. If Kentucky to-morrow unfurls tbe banner of resistance, I never will fight under that ban ner. I owe a paramount allegiance to the whole Union —a subordinate one to my own State. ■ About Vico Presidents. A Washington correspondent of the Phila delphia Press writes: It is a curious fact that for forty years past t' c Vice President has either been at enmity with the President or has been lost sight of in the distribution of patronage, except where ha became Chief Magistrate by the death of the first officer of the Government. Mr. Cal houn and General Jackson had an early and a severe difference. Vice President Richard M. Johnson never wielded much power under Mr. Van Buren’s Administration. Had Harri son survived there can be no doubt that John Tyler would have been utterly ignored, and the same may be said of Mr. Fillmore who mounted over the coffin of Gen. Taylor into the Presidential Chair. In 1814, when Polk and Dallas were elected, the friends of the latter in Pennsylvania exulted iu the prospect of con trolling the patronage of the Federal Govern ment, because their justly distinguished favor ite occupied so close a relation to the Presi dent; but Mr. Buchanan, a shrewd, cautious, "scheming politician, located, at Lancaster, checkmated them, and, .before the 4th of March, 11:15, had not only put himself into. the Department of State; but had put his rival, Mr. Dallas, under a shadow. From that day to the expiration of the term of President Polk, Mr. Dallas had no influence whatever. The early death of the venerable William R. King doubtless saved Aim from a similar mor tification under the Administration of Presi dent Pierce. In 1356, when the favorite son of Pennsylvania was chosen to the high posi tion he now occupies in company with the young Kentuckian, John C. Breckinridge, wo had a striking exemplification of the fact that it is almost impossible for the President and Vice President to agree. - From the moment that James Buchanan entered the White House, his besetting infirmity seemed to be suspicion of all his old friends, and jealousy of the hand some Vice, President. Iu vain did the friends of the latter appeal for patronage. .They were coldly and haughtily excluded. The framers of the Constitution intended to • make the Vice-President a counselor of the President. In fact, his connection with the Senate, and the vote he receives at the elec tion, ought to put him before the Cabinet, hut the reverse has been occupied in England, for many years, by the heir apparent to the reign ing monarchy. One characteristic exception -is furnished to this rule, and that is the man nerinwhich Old Hickory trustedaud confided in Vice-President Martin Van Bnren. Jack son’s friendships were so tenacious,-that, • whether ho stood by a politician in petticoats or in pantaloons, he rarely gave up one to whom.be was attached. Von Bnren was not only his intimate and confidential friend, but his daily, counselor; and when themanofiron nerve mounted the second time to the highest office in tho world, he caused it to-be under .stood that Ms suqpessor should be the Yice : President," andthe flat was carried out, - ’ Tbe Climate at Charleston, A Charleston letter, writer' says Early Spring is coming upon us, and the peach blos soms throw their fragrance in theadjolnlng gardens.

THE TEXAS SURRENDER. Seizure of: Federal Properly. THE SOLMEBS WIIXIhG, BUT KOT PEK- MITTED TO DEFESD IT. Details of the. Treason of Gen, Twiggs. Gov. Houston Still J?ttf The Union. [From the Oairestoh TfeMrs df ite Slst.] 1 Last night the report reached here, via Houston* In an authentic form, that a body of State troops* under the command of Gen. Mc- Culloch, actingby authority,of the Convention, hod marched into San Antonio and taken pos session of thearms and other Federal property, there. ‘ r . . Gen. McCulloch’s move was hastened in consequence of it becoming known, that Gen. Twiggs had been relieved bybider of the Sec retary of War, and was to be succeededby Col. Carlos A. Waite, Ist Infantry, stationed at Camp Verde, in Kerr County, about ninety miles northwest of San Antonio» Col. Waite is”a Northern man; his views on the political crisis were not known. • Those of Gen. Twiggs were; it was known he wotild not stain ms sword with the blood of his fellow citizens of the South. The State Commissioners were ar ranrfng with him for an amicable transfer of the Federal property in his charge when the Secretary’s order arrived. Its cartness gave offense, adding to the determination of the Commissioners to act in order to avoid us far as possible any chanced a conflict with Cob Waite, and relieve Gen. Twiggs from the embarrassment of his position. San Antonio was in a state of intense excite ment lor some days previous-to the entrance of the Rangers. ’ Gen. Twiggs received the Secretary of War’s order on the 15th. Cob Waite jvas expected to arrive the next day. It was generally thought he would refuse to carry out Gen. Twiggs’ agreement, and would resist by force, .with the 120 United States troops ofiheU.S.Ai Arsenal. It was determin cd not to give him a chance. On Friday evening, the San Antonio K.’s G. C,, 200 in number—a well armed and equipped body—marched out to meet the comingtroops urdefMcGnilocb, from the Salado, four miles off. At two o’clock on Saturday, 300 of them— picked men —entered R-*™ Antonio on horse back as an advance guard. Later, 500 more marched in. Guards were. at once stationed around the Arsenal, over the artillery park and ail the government buildings. One.lettertoussaystbat after a council of the State Commissioners with Gen. Twiggs, the former obtained possession at 11 o’clock A- it., and the United States soldiers would march in a day or two for Indlauola. . Another letter to a gentleman, who has kind ly' placed it at our disposal, says: After the city companies took possession of the Alamo, Gen. Twiggs, accompanied bv M-ijor Nichols, met Gen. McCulloch In the Main Plaza. The horsemen piraded around tuem, and there was a burst of cheers as the officers met. A demand was made for the sur render of the Federal property, and the im mediate evacuation of the place by the United States soldiers, without their arias. The reply was, that every soldier would be shot down ere submitting to that disgrace. It was feared that a bloody strife would ensue. • At half-past 13 o’clock, however, terms were agreed upon. The soldiers leave town im mediately, taking their side arms and sufficient supply of stores to enable them to leave the State. They are getting ready to leave. They will camp at the San Pedro Springs, awaiting the arrival of Cob Waite. $1,785.41 Another letter says; ' Col. Lee, U. S. A., has just arrived, but too late to effect anything, even if disposed to offer resistance. The Rangers will return to tlieir camp on the Salado, and will at once march to take pos session of the other U. S. forts and garrisons on the frontier. It is thought they will be sur rendered without resistance, so large will be tbe force brought against them. The Lone Star flag once more floats from the Alamo. The Commissioners could have obtained possession of the battery at Fort Duncan; but their instructions,from Hon. Mr. Robertson, were to avoid, if possible, any chance of col lision with the Federal troops; and General Twiggs had repeatedly asserted to the Com missioners and the State Military Command ers that he would die before he would permit his men to be disgraced by any surrender of their arms; the men umober bis command bad never been dishonored or disgraced; and they never should be, if he could help it. This news, we presume, has been sent to tbe Federal troops on the Rio Grande, where it would do away with all chances of a collision with the State force that left this city a few days ago. The San Antonio Ledger , whose account agrees in the main with tnat of the News, adds: Although the streets and plazas have been crowded with armed men, not a drunken man was visible, and everything was peaceable and quiet; indeed, everything passed off with great satisfaction, except by the fall of a double barreled shot gun from a horse amid a group ofgentlemen, was discharged, wounding seven men and two horses. None of the gentlemen are dangerously wounded. The News of the 23d says: j The Federal property seized by the Texan troops at San Antonio, amounted to $55,000 in specie; 35,000 stand of arms; 2G pieces of mounted artillery; 44 pieces of dismounted artillery; any quantity of ammunition, and •ther munitions of war; and alarge collection of horses, moles, wagons, forage, etc., etc. The number of State troops present at the sur render wa-v 1,100, while Gen. Twiggs’s force amounted 10160 men. By the terms of sur render, the Federal troops were permitted to retain their side arms, two light batteries of four guns each, camp and garrison equipage, and the means of transportation to the coast. The agreement with Gen. Twiggs having been perfected, the Texas Commissioners issued the following circular: San Antonio, Feb. 18. The undersigned, Commissioners on tiic part of the State of Texas, fully empowered to exercise the authority undertaken by them, have formally and solemnly agreed with Bre vet Major General David £. Twiggs, United Stales army, commanding the Department o' Texas, that the troops of the United States shall leave the soil of the State, by the way of the coast; that they shall take with them the arms of their respective corps, including the battery of light artillery at Fort Duncan, and the battery of the same character at Fort Brown; and shall he allowed the necessary means for regular and comfortable move ment, provisions, tents, <&c., &c., and trans portation. It is the desire of the Commissioners that there should he no Infraction of this agree ment on the part of the people of the State. It is their wish on the contrary, that every la cilityshallhe afforded the troopf. They are our friends. They have heretofore affordedto our people all the protection in their power. They have been our protectors, and we owe them every consideration. The pnbiic property at the various posts, other than that above recited for the v uee of the troops, will be turned over to agents to be ap pointed by the Commission, who will give due and ppoper receipts for the whole to the offi cers of the army, whom, they relieve in their custody of the public property.

The Galveston Civilian of the 21st iust. has the following: We understand that Gen. Houston has been for some dajs.atTiis place on Galveston Bay, preparing a place of retirement for his old age. He arrived th&ro last Friday,.but traveled in the most private way, and avoided all inter ference with the present political agitation. He does not, however, we understand, wish by any means to be considered as oue of those eleventh-hour converts to secession, so many of whom are now claiming their reward. The Austin InUUUjcncer has been permitted to pub lish the following extract from a letter written by Gen. Houston to an old friend, wMch de fines his position, thus : “ You say It is reported that I am for seces sion. Ask those who say so to point to a word of mine authorizing the statement, I have de clared myself in favor of peace, of harmony, of compromise; in order to obtain a fair expres sion of the will of-the people. Dangerous as may be the precedent inaugurated by the Con vention, before the majesty of the law, which recognizes its power to submit the question of disunion to-the neople, I yield in the shine spirit that actuated Andrew Jackson, in pay ing the fine arbitrarily imposed upon him at New Orleans, lam determined that those who would overthrow law, shall learn no lessou from me.- . .. . . £ . . “ I still believe that Secession ■will brinu ruin and civil war. Yet if the people will,! can bear it with; them! ' I would fain not be de clared an alifcn from nay native home in old Virginia, to toe scenes of my early toils and triumphs in noble Tennessee. I wonld not, of ray own choice, give np the banner beneath which I have fought, the i .Constitution which I have revered, or the Union which I have loved and cherished, as the glorious and price less heritage bequeathed 'me. by; my fathers. Sixty-seven years of freedom, the recollection ; of post triumphs and sufferings, the memories . of heroes whom 1 have seen and known, and whose venerated shades would haunt my foot steps, were I to falter now, may, • perhaps, have made me too devoted to the Constitution and the' Union,-but be it so.

T. Tribime, Fit. 23th.] In the very heart of the great Talley, Hiichtay between the Arctic and the Tropic, the Atlan tic and the Rocky Mountains, Ilea the State of Illikois, the young Hercules of the West, touching Lake Michigan on the north and the lower Ohio on the south, with ihS fnaiestle Mississippi washing her entire .western border and the wabash skirting her for more than' half its length on the east Her growth dar ing the last decade has been realty more rapid ana considerable than that of any other State, .though some of the neweft hare increased in population by a larger percentage than hers. We believe her representation in Congress will be increased under the Census of 1860 by fbur Members; and we think no other State'-will gain so many; Her population has all but doubled during the last decade*, haying risen ' from some 900,000 to about 1,700,000. . _0 her States have each some peculiarity in which it may fairly claim precedence. Mich igan and (Wisconsin are both tar better tim bered, having an a&undance of Jrfhej whereas Illinois has not a stick. Pennsylvania, Vir ginia and Missouri are richer in minerals; lowa and Kansas have more undulating surfaces, and are (we think) better watered;; Ohio lies nearer to the seaboard; Hew England hasher manufactures, and New York her foreign com-, merce; but in average depth and richness of soil—in capacity ip produce groin and grass, , meat and vegetables;. Illinois is probably the first among the States, and surpassed by no equal area upon the lace of the globd. Originally, scarcity, and imperfect distribu tion of timber, with defective facilities for transportation and travel, were her great draw backs. Probably three-fourths of her.sni’iaee were prairie when, settlement commenced; while her timber was for the most part stunted and gnarly by reason of the high winds con stantly wrehchlng tmd. the fierce fires, fre quently scorching it. She had fio evergreens of consequence, and very few trees from which decent boards could be sawed. Many prairies were ten to twenty miles wide— some were thirty to forty. The deep, black muck which formed the soil was powdered into dost by drouth, or sodden Into mire by rain. The moment the prairie sod was cut through, the whtels of eachloadedvehielesankthrough half of each year nearly to the hub; and thus not only building materials, salt and groceries, but fencing and fuel were to be carted for long distances—a load of wheat being drawn to Chicago, and the proceeds converted into a load of. boards for fencing—the journey out and back often consuming a week. Many a load of produce thus marketed has seen nearly or quite its price absorbed in the inevitable ex pense of the journey out and in. This impelled the State to engage prematurely in the con struction of canals, which involvedherhcavily in debt without very materially improving her access to markets. Eailroads followed in due season, aud did her good service, while, being constructed mainly by private enterprize* whatever.advantage accrued to the public was so much clear gam. . Still, extensive areas of her soil must have remained unimproved, un inhabited for ages but for the construction of thc"liliaois Central Railroad. That great work, munificently endowed with wild lands by Congress, starts from Chlcnga in tbc North-cast and Dunleith in the North west of the State,aud converging to ajuuction near the centre, runs thence by a single line to Cairo iu the extreme South, at the junction of the Ohio with the Mississippi, the work hav ing thus a total length of over six hundred miles. And, though not run as the profit of the stockholders would have dictated, its course is precisely such as best conduced to the settlement and growth of the State. Mil lions of acres, else uninhabitable, are by It rendered among the most inviting and valua ble of any wildlands on our Continent: and though the Federal "rant covered more than- Two and a Half Minions of acres, we believe the Public Domain was Increreed not merely iu value but iu productiveness to the Treasury by this enlightened liberality. And though ihe stockholders iu the road have hitherto reaped no advantage, aud their stock is now considerably belo«- par, we feel confident that patience and judicious management will yet render their investment a good oue. . Illinois, already the fourth and probably poun to be the third Slate in the Union—for Virginia is already behind her in every ele ment of consequence aud power—is yet in her infancy. Of her soil, probably less than one fourth has yet been plowed; and her last crop —immense as it was, especially of corn—is but a fraction of what she can and will pro duce. We believe her product of this staple already far exceeds that of any other Slate, while in wheat, beef, and pork she is scarcely second to any. Her coal is hardly exceeded la abundance by that of any other State; near ly every loot of her surface is underlaid with lime; and her iron, though less abundant, is good. Her chief mart, though hardly thirty years old, ranks seventh among American cit ies; k promises ere long to be the fifth. Illi nois bids fair to have five millions of inhab itants in 1880, and to increase the number to leu millions early in the next century. Her career is hardly begun. Interview Between iflr. Lincoln and Uie City Authorities of Washington* [From the Nutioual Republican, Feb. 28.] On leavingthc Executive Mansion, the party repaired to Willard's Hotel, to extend a for nu'l welcome to the President elect After a lew minutes delay, they were invited into the principal apartment of Mr. Lincoln, where ihat distinguished gentleman was in readiness to receive them. The Mayor then addressed the President elect in the following language: Mr. Lincoln: As the President elect under the Constitution of tbe United States, you are soon to stand in the august presence of a great nation of freemen,, amt enter upon tbe dis charge of the duties of the highest public trusts known to our form of government, and under circumstances menacing the peace and permanency of the Republic, which hare no parallel in the history of our country. It is our earnest wish that you may be abic, as wc have no doubt you will, to perform those du ties in such a manner as shall restore peace smd harmony to our now distracted country, and dually bring the old ship of State into a harbor of safety and prosperity, thereby de servedly securing tbe universal plaudits of a whole world. I avail myself, sir, of this occa sion to say that the citizens of Washington, true to the instincts of constitutional liberty, will ever be found faithful to all the obli gations of patriotism; and as their Chief Magistrate, and in accordance with the hon ored usage, I hid you welcome to the seat of Government. MR. LINCOLN’S REPLY. Mr. Mayor : I thank you, and through you» the municipal authorities of this city who ac company you, fur this welcome. And as it is the first lime in my life, since the present phase of politics has presented itself in this country, that I have said anything publicly within a re gion of country where the institution of slave ry exists, I will take this occasion to say that I think very much of the ill feeling that has existed, and still exists, between the people in the section from whence I came and the peo ple hero, is dependent upon a misunderstand ing of one another. I therefore avail myself of this opportunity to assure you, Mr. Mayor,- and all the gentlemen present, that I have not now, and never have had, any other than as kindly feelings towards you as the people of my own section. I have not now, and never have hud, any disposition to treat you in any respect otherwise than as my own neighbors. I have not now any purpose to withhold from you any of the benefits of the Constitution, under any circumstances, that I would not feel myself constrained to withhold from my own neighbors; aud I hope, in a word, that when we shall become better acquainted—and I say it with great confidence—we shall like each other the more. I thank you for the kindness of this reception. The visitors were then severally introduced to the President elect, and a brief period was spent in social conversation. Shortly after wards the company departed, evidently well pleased with the visit. Mr. Lincoln** Position. [From a" Special Correspondent of tlio Eve, Post.] Washington, Fvb. 26, 1561. The reports of Lincoln’s inclinations, as given out in conversation, arc colored by the personal feelings of the narrators. One of these reports makes him say that no plan of compromise yet suggested satisfied him. Gov. Sprague and 'Judge Ames, the latter a Peace Commissioner of Rhode Is land, asked a special interview, which was granted. They are said to have urged Mr. Lincoln’s assent to the Guthrie proposition. Mr. Lincoln object ed, on the ground that it recognized slavery iu the Territories, aud he was elected to keep slavery out of the Territories. Judge Ames then reminded the President elect that the proposition, as amended by Reverdy Johnson, only ai?plied to “present” Territory'. Lin coln insisted that it would, by fair inference, apply to future acquisition, and asked Ames if he could get the Southern men iu the confer ence to adopt an amendment that this recogni tion of slavery shall not' apply to future acqui sitions of Territory. To this Judge Ames is reported to have an swered, “ Probably not.” Lincoln was then reminded that. Rhode Island voted for him chiefly as an old-line. Whig. This, he remark ed jocosely, was the worst reason he had yet heard assigned for his election. Rhode Island, observed one of the gentlemen, is a little be hind the other eastern States on the slavery question. Lincoln replied to this assertion of Rhode Island's political backwardness by an anecdote of a Sunday School in Connecticut, where a boy, iu answer to a question respect ing the attributes of the Deity, answered that they had three gods in Conn* etient, bntia Rhode Island, where he came from, they had no god at all As the Commissioners retired, Mr.Lincoln said perhaps he had been too un reserved, aud they might considerthe remarks as unsaid. “Wc wish we could,’’ was their re sponse, ns they left the room. This story is a part of the current anecdotes of “Old Abe,” and has produced'quite a sensation he»e. I cannot vonch. for the details of this report, but believe it to be In the main correct. A New Agitation in Charleston. The rebels begin to canvass with an air of .seriousness the suggestion whether the Fed eral Government will not embrace in its plan for reenforcing Fort Sumter, toe landing of troops on Jarvis Island, with toe view of at tackmgthe batteries in the rear.

Southern Trade Active in New York. Southern merchants arc making good use of the brief time allowed to them for the intro duction of goods “freeof duty,”, which, un der the ordinance of the ‘'Confederate States,” expires during the current week. Tbecf Is fully the usual number of Southern purchasers in town, as compared with previous years, at the corresponding season, and all with the view of replenishing their exhausted stocks of merchandise. In Warren, Murray and Cham bers streets, as well as other business locali ties, unusual activity was noticed yesterday In the shipment of goods; carts were observed with full loads of boxes of dry goods and other merchandise, on their way to various Southern steamers, which are loading for Norfolk, Sa vannah and Charleston. Upon inquiry among merchants, it appears that while there are manywishingto purchase on the “ usual terms,” eomparatively few ob tain credit, and these are old customers who have always promptly met their obligations. Those who have shown a disposition to lay in heavily, “ upon time,” have found I - difficult to negotiate in the present “unsatisfactory state of the country;” while substantial mer chants who have come with money to pay up old scores, and buy moderately, have met with no difficulty. A strong Southern house, with extensive conuections in all the seceding States, say they make it a rule to fill orders uniformly to collect ou delivery by Express.
