the TracAlm.
Doubtless many well meaning people n
the South are sincerelj conTinced that it is
within tbe rightful power of Congress to
legislate for the protection of slavery in tbe
territories, aud that that power onght to be
exercised when occasion calls for it. We are
disposed to scconl to the masses of the De
mocracy in sevtral of ibeSunlheiu States
where the demand is much insisted ou, blu
est sincerity, and c-nscienctous earnestness
in their eUorU to asserl the doctrine and se
cure its application. With this concession
we d'etre now to say that in the hand of the
leaders who are making the most noise on
the subject, and who threaten all sorts of
dire calamities to tbe South unlet- it is suc
cessfully a.-.icrUil and applied, it is au un
mitigated sham and pretense.
A certain cla-ts of those leaders, we hare
seen for tbe last ten years, any one may see
by reviewing tb; political events of that
time, is bent on destroying the unity of the
jiieeut government of tbe? United States.
They seized, at an early day, upon the sub
ject of domestic slavery, and the exciting
questions growing out of it, a the most
practicable expedient for exasperating the
popular passions of both sections, and tlx-y
Lave never -l the agitation of them rest.
As soon as one issue is decided they have
another ready to spring upon the country.
Ten years ago they supposed they bud suc
cess within their grasp. Having thrown
every obstacle a quick and diabolical ingenu
ity could suggest, in the way of the passage
of tbe Compromise Measures of 1S50, on the
final triumph of those measures, they initia
ted a dissolution movement by assembling
a convention, of diguuiouista in this city.
The sober sense, the conservatism wisdom,
the patriotic instincts of the people of tba
South were stronger than was calculated,
and tbe attempt was a disgusting failure.
Ia the ensuing State elections, these tlia
oniouists were rebuked and overwhelmed
with confiusioii ami defeat.
Iinpudontly enough they retreated from the
terrible shock of pomilir indignation, and

Blould urge the demand to an h-sue in Con

bo completely and hopeleanly that thk-y could

The following article which we copy frfm
the Hantsville (Ala.)' Democrat, suggests tbe
idea that the" delegates from this, and other
Southern States, wbo remained in the Charles
ton Convention after tbe withdrawal of the
disorganizers, w-re not governed by the most
patriotic motives. Euch of the remaining
delegations had "an axe to grind," it -pears;
and held mtn in bTgher esteem than
prit.cipft. What have our Tenuessee dele
gatTi to say in reply to the suggested charge?
If tbe charge be true, it woild s-'em to us
that the lactouly places them on the platform
of the sec-ders, who, after all their professions
of devotion to principle, retired really because
they were not sure ol their power to defeat
DoL'tit-AA Mtn, and not principle, therefore,
if we take tbe word of tbe parties to th eon
test, were at the bottom of the troubles at

making partisan view.', the ehc:ion of a man

the Presidency. They preferred measures to

A. JLeiter from Jlr, Seward.
New York, May 24. The following letter
has been adireraed by Mr. Seward to the gen
tlemen or the Central Republican Committee.
who invited bim to attend a meeting for the
ratification of the proceedings of the Nation
al Convention:
Aubcbx, May 21, I860.
Gexti.bme.v: I will not affect lo consult
tlie sensibility with" which I have received
the letters iu which you and so many other
respected friends have tendered to me ex
pressions of renewed aud enduring confi
dence. These letters will remain with nie
as as urances in future years, that although
I was not uawilling to await, even far anoth
er age, tbe vindication of my political prin
ciples, yet that tny did nevertheless receive
the generous supiort of many good, wise and
patriotic men of my own time.
Such assurances, bowever, made under tbe
circumstances- now existing, d-rive their
priceless value largely from the fact that
they steal upon me ihrough the channels of
private correspondence, aud although un
known to tbe world, you will at once per
ceive that such expressions would become
painful to me, und justly offensive to the
country, if they should be allowed to take
in any public or conventional form of mani
festatiou. For this reason, if it were respect
ful and consistent br your own public pur
poses, I would have d -.laved my reply to you
until 1 coal 1 Lave had an opportunity of
making it verbally next week on my way to
Washington, after completing the arrange
ments for the repairs upon my dwelling, rt-n
dcred necessary by n recent lire.
The same reason determines me also to de
cline your ki.id invitation to attend the meet'
ing in which you propose sotn- dcinonstra
lions of respect to myself. While so justly
considering the nominations which have just
been made by the -National Convention at
Cnicagj, at the tame lime it is your right to
nave a frank ami caudiil expression ot my
own opinions aud sjiitnuento ou thai import
ant subject.
My friends, knowing very well that while
they have always g'-ueroily made my pro
motion to public tiusts their own exclusive
care, mine has ouly been to execute them
faithfully, so as to be able, at the close of
their assigned term, to reMn them into the
bands of the people without forfeiture of
the public confidence.
The presentation of my name to the Chi
cago Convention was thus tlu-n their act,
not mine; the disappointment therefore
theirs, not mine.

The decease of William UamplK-U Preston
adds a notable asterisk to the roll of the
South Carolina College fer th'! gifted Class
or 1S12. In that year he left the clas-ic
shades of that institution, in a class of thirty
five, of whom few few aie now surviving.
Of these few, our city bus several represen
tatives Hon. Henry L. Pinckney and our
patriarch teacher, Ebciiczcr Thayer. Our
honored friend William Cain. Ex-Lieut. Gov
eruor, is another survivor of the Class,
whose most distinguished exponent now is
Chief Ju.-tic3 John Helton O'Neall. The
veteran diplomatist and genuine representa
tive of the old school of Curolina gentlemen.
Col. B aufort T. Watts, is another of the
honored survivors who will drop a tear to
the memory of a la-loved classmate.
Col. Robert H. Goodwyn. President of the
Branch Bank, lit Columbia, is, we b-licve, the
only survivor now resident in that city, so
long favored with the presence of I'p-kIoii,
und so deeply cherished iu the ntlVctions ol
bis capacious heart. His heart, indeed, was
as laige, morally speaking, as his brain, and
he loved his friends as lew men evirlovid.
He deserved their love which he iu return
rcc ived, and no man was more gifted in the
nits and graces whieh adorn con vei sation,
or was more ready to pour out his services
for Ins friend- iu social entertainment.
It is indeed a singular instance ofdservcd
l licity, on which the surviving friends of
tlie great and jilted Orator will d.vcll with
ph asing recnlht-tions, that he oulliv cd and
.conquered all political asperalies and prejudi

Practical Jokes.
We remember of bearing a story of a fel
low who aroused a venerable doctor about
12 o'clock one winter's night, and on his
coming to the door coolly inquired:
"Have you lost a knife, Mr. Brown?"
"No," growled tbe victim.
"Well never mind," said the wag, "I
thought I'd just call and inquire, for I found
one yesterday."
We thought that very cool, bat the follow
ing story of .Neil McKinnnon, a'Newr York
wag, surpasses in impudence anything with
in our recollection. Read and judge for
yourself :
When tbe celebrated "Copenhagen Jack
son" was British Minister in this country, be
resided in New York and occupied a bouse
on Broadwiy. Neil one night at a late
hour, in company with in bevy of rough
riders, while passing the house, noticed it
was brilliantly illuminated, and that several
carriages were waiting at the door.
"Holloa!" said the wag, "what's going on
at Jackson's"
One of the company remarked that Jack
sen had a party this evening.
"What!" exclaimed Neil; ''Jackson have
a party, and I not invited! I must see to
. So, stepping np to tbe door, he gave a ring
which 6oon brought tbe servant out.
"I want to see the British Minister," said
'Yon mast call some other time," said tbe
servant, "lor he is now engaged at a game
of whist, and must not be disturbed."
' Don't talk to me that way," said Mc
Kinnon, "but go directly and tell the British
Minister that 1 must see him immediately on
special business."
The servant obeyed, and delivered his mes
sage in so impressive a style as to bring Mr.
Jackson to the door forthwith.
"Well," said Mr. Jackson, "what can be
your business with me at this time of night,
which is so very orgeat!"
'Are you Mr. Jackson?" asked Neil.
"Yes. sir, I am Mr. Jackson."
"The British Minister?"
"Yes, sir."
"You have a party here to-night, I perceive,
Mr. Jackson."
"Yes sir, I have a party."
"A large party, I presume."
"Yes sir, a large party."
"Playing cards I understand?"
"O, well." said Neil, "as I was passing I
merely called to inquire, what's trumps."
Ro8Ewatkr MiRTTBDOM. The New York
Tribune docs not sympathize with Mr.
Tbadeus Hyatt in Lis voluntary martyrdom
It says:
We have no respect for rosewater martyr- -
dom. Martyrdom is a very serious and r .
very rests ctable thing, and we do not like to
see it cheapened. If Mr. Hyatt chooses to
put himself in the way of being provided
villi a residence in the Washington jail, out
of which he can walk the moment be choose .
by following Ihe example of men quite ar
conscientious as himself, we do not feel our
selves called upon to bold him up as a great
sufferer for a great principle.
He settles nothing and elucidates nothing
by remaining in confinement, except th
power of the Senate lo punish for contempt : .
be does not avail himself of the writ of hibtat
corpus to test the legality of bis imprisonment;
be does not rsk, or does not induce nb
friends in the Seuate to bring up for discus
sion in that body the question of their power;
be remains in jail on a technicality ol Iegis
Iative e'iuuette, and we have too much re
spect for martyrdom to acknowledge that it .
comes under that category. We need first to j
be couvinced that any sacred right ot the '
citizen has been violated in his person, and
next that his isfthe most judicious way 01 as
serting that right.
Our District Convention.
A proposition has reached us through our
cotemporaries, the Rutherford Teleirajth and
hraiikun Revitio, in regard to the District
Convention for the nomination of a Presi
dential Elector for this the Fifth Distiiet.
TheOthof June is suggested as a suitable
riiuie for holding the Convention in Murfrees-
boro'. While we bad hoped that Gallafiu
would have been chosen as the seat of the
Convention, thinking we would put in a plea
for our goodly city, we yet readily accorl
with our esteemed friends of Rutherford and
Williamson, and promise to meet them iu
Murl'rcesboro on the 9th June.
We trust the delegates who weie chosen
in our County Convention will bear iu mind
the ensuing 9th, and lie in attendance prompt
ly. We want to see old Sumner fully repre
sented iu Ihe Convention, which, we arc con
fident, will put upon tbe track an able and
eloquent champion in the cause of BfcLL, aud

A dispacth in tbe Courier of Ttieaday, 22 I
Inst., reported the capture of another slaver
on the Cuban coast by an U. S. steamer, and
the transfer ot her living cargo to Key West.
We have received from a correspondent at
that place luller details of this affair.
The WyvulAtt, Cupt. Staxlkt, arrived at
Key West with her prize ou the night ot the
12ih inst.. at nine o'clock. She is called the
bark WiUvnni, and has on board a cargo of
five bundled and titty Africtus. The person
in command gives Wkstox as his name, al
though it was reported at Kiy West that his
real name was TowxsE.vn. The Wyandotte
made the capture on the 11th inst., near the
Isle of rin--s. When first discovered by the
ir, the slaver was laying lo, and had several
lighters around her, the arrangements for
landing her cargo being nearly complefob.
As the WymidtM was noticed the captain
of the Wdiuinu made sail, ami used - every
exertion to escape, but aa the wind died
away she made but little headway, aud was
soon overhauled by tbe WyandUU, and her cap
ture effected.
Most of the Africans are in a weak and dis
eased state, aud many deaths have occurred
since their arrival at Key West. They have
been turned over to the custody of the U. S.
Marshal Morena, who is somewhat p-rpexed
as to their proper disposal. He has no place
lo put them, aud there is no lim tier at Key
Wot suitable lor building even temporary uc
commodaiious for them. In addition to this,
both food and water were becoming scarce,
the sudden addition of so large a number lo
population hating nearly t-xhausttd tbe sup
plies ol both thco necessaries.
It wa very gnemlly hoped at Key West
that the government would lake early steps to
the two c irgos of Afiicans removed. Tnl
was considered the more desirable and neces
essary Irom the apprc hentiou. very gen- rally
entertained there, that more cargos would bt
ndded to their already overburtut-iied commu
nity. Th.i accounts received by these two
ai rivals, jusii'y ihe rx-li-f that several other
vessels are eiiher ou the way, or hovrring
near the Cuban Coast, waiting a favourable
oportuuity lo discharge their liviug freights.
