The New York Tribune has the follow comments
on the admission of New Mexico:
If it be true, as Mr. Sherman asserts in his reply
to the invitation to a public dinner in l'hiladalphia,
that slavery can never be established in New Mexi
co, it is folly to expect that olTering her admission
as a slave State now will be accepted as a sufficient
concession 4lo pacify the South; Jf it isnot rue
tljat Slave lyJcan never be established there, then the
concession is one the Nortlf should neverthake. In
either case, the proposition is an unwise one, conced
ing too much for too little, and one which .does lit
tle credit to those who made it. Let it be under
stood and remembered, and it ought not to bs neces
sary at tliis late day to enforce it, that when the
Republican party asserted at the ballot box the
doctrine of no more slave territory, they meant that
that dictum should apply not only to all Territories
belonging to the United States now, but to all that
byniny possibility ever should belong to it They
mcaHtlO put this question beyond a peradventure,
and'tb give notice to hold good thenceforward
and fforever that the extension of slavery,
whethel) posaibje or positive, was prohibited
forever. This was a good doctrino on which to go
through the canvass. It is equally good as a bound
principle of Government, as we all believed ; and
now let us stick to it There is no safety lor ua
elsewhere. It is not impossible, though we hope
not probable, that .the South may accept the ad
missionjlipj JfewMcxi&o as a Istate ,as a sufficient
compromise. Suppose they db this, will it be be
cause they consider the privilege of carrying slave
ry into that State all they need aak for ? Not at all.
WC; all ofjasinow better But it will be because
thoy welcome a concession, whereby the North fails
to cnfqrcetho principles of non-cxtcn&ion of slavery,
trustinglo time an opportunity to turn that concoa
sion to.thcir oYn advantage, and the time and the
opportunity wiU'not long be wanting. Admit New
Mexico with the privilege of holding blaves if she
pleases, and there is a precedent to plead in favor

'Ttie'Louisville C!i(rier"says: "The arguments for
submission to the North have gone through so many
phases that it is difficult to follow ihem. We sub

aa. that of it itself would be, in view of the otTen
sivc sentiments he has uttcred.-and is known tov en
tertain which has awakened that ternado of pop
ular indignation which is now sweeping 'over -the
South. It is not the mere platform, upon which he
was nominated infamous as that is to the bouth
crn man but it is the determined, aggressive spirit
of Abolition, indulging and sustaining the party
which has secured his triumph and the overthrow
of the Constitution. It is the unappeasable hatred
which that party cherishes, and has ever cherished,
for slavery and the slaveholder, that proclaiming
to us that there is an "irrepressible contact" be
tween them and us. It is that the" Chair of State,
once occupied by -Washington, is to' be desecrat
ed by the chief of a party which has risen upon
tho principle of .denying' to the citizens ot fifteen
sovereign States that equality of rights secured to
them iu the common property of all the States. It
is that an institution existing at the formation of the
Constitution, and now the lounuation ot the wealth
properity and happiness of twelve millions of peo
pic, is to be outlawed, and the moral sentiment of
the world invoked to make it, and those who toler
ate it, hateful. It is that the President elect owes
his triumph to such a party, that he has pander
cd to such a sentiment, and that the Govern
ment is to be administered for such a purpose
that the State of Mississippi has resolved whatever
may be the issue fearlessly to appeal to tho God of
battles the justice ol her cause, and the arbitrament
of mankind. Come what may, though it should cost
every drop of blood and every cent of property, she
will never submit to the domination of such a party
anii ot such a chief,
In that appeal, she invokes no sympathy or com
passion, bhe has fullv counted the cost ot resist
ance. She has not rashly taken her position. A
necessity too strong and imposing to be disregarded,
demands that she should assume the guardianship of
her own rights and honor. She will never consent
that either shall be under the control of a govern
ment hostile to her and hers. She ardently desires
the :o-opcratiou ol her sisters, having a common in
terest and destiny. She defies and despises the
malice of her foes. Shu has sent commissioners to
all the slaveholding States to invite their co-opera-
tion in dclencc ot common rights against a common
enemy. She bids me, as her representative, say to
her chivalrous sister, lenncssec, that she has too
often illustrated her heroism in arms, and her wis
dom in council, to donbt that, as upon the deathless
plains of Chalmette and at the storming of Monterey
they stood shoulder to shoulder, that they will be
separated now. when the holiest cause that ever in
spired the humah heart, summons them to the con
Misnissinni knows and annrcciates the lovaltr to
the Union which has ever distinguished her sister.
The sentimei.t has an abiding place in her own
bosom. To it she is ready to sacrifice everything
which a proud sovereign State may or dare sacri
fice of care, comfort or convenience, ner honor
and coistitulional rights she may not, dare not nur
render. For tho honor of tho national Government,
she has sacrificed hecatombs of her best sons. To
vindicate her own honor she is ready to sacrifice
her last son. and herself disappear from the mip of
nations, bhe bids me say that " she loves ana cher
ishes the Union ; that she remembers, with the kind
est leehngs, our common origin, with pride our
common aehievmcnts, and has fondly anticipated the
common greatness and glory which has seemed to
await us; but that origin, achievements and antici
pation of coming greatness, arc' to us as nothing
compared to this question; that it is to us a vital
question; that it involves not only our liberty, but
what is greater (if to freemen anything can be) ex
istence itself." So, viewing it, and-despairing of a
returning sense of justice with her haughty and vic
torious foe. she has determined to welcome death
rather than submission. She considers a dissolution
of the Union a great, though not the greatest calami
ty. In the language of her own warrior statesman,'
the fearless, the chivalrous Davis, "She would cling
tenaciously to our constitutional Government, see
ing as she does, in the fraternal union of equal
States, the benefit to all. and the (fulfillment of that
high destiny which our fathers hoped for and left it
for their sons to attain. She has seen tho national
flag surrounded byithe Hags of foreign countries and
the pulsations of her hearthave beat quicker with
every breeze which displayed its honored stripes and
brilliant constellation. She lias looked with vener
ation on those stripes, as recording the original size
of our political family, and with pride upon tliat
constellation, as marking the family's growth. She
glories in the position her own star holds in the group

see ii degraded from its present equality, she would

to denounce their chosen chief as a traitor, if in the

more relentless than a war of races or of castes. It

Nearly a quarter of a century ago, when this vora'
clous' demon was in its swaddling clothing, andahe
nnrses in charge made their first requisition upon
Congress in tho shape of Abolition Pe
titions, Mr. Calhoun raised his prophetic voice
in words of wisdom and warning, wliich,
if lieeaetl, would have arrested .the terrible
catastrophe- now imminent and unavoidable.
He "then declared 'that aggression Should' not'
be met by concession ; that those who acted upon
the principle that it should, were prepared to become
slaves : that if an inch was conceded, concession'
jwoulu follow concession, compromise wpuid louow
compromise, until our ranss wouia oe so broken
that effectual resistance would bo impossible He
counselled that the enemy should be met on the
.frontier witlj j Csvd determination to maintain our
iwwifi- --very hazard, rracing the subsequent
.history and career of that spirit of aggression
which had seized the Northern mind, he undertook
to predict that however sound the great body of the
;non-siaveiioiuingbtates then were, that in the course
of a few years they would be succeeded by those
who will have been tauzht to hate the people and
institutions of nearly one-half of this Union, with a
hatred more deadlythan one hostile nation ever-cn'-
tertamed towards another, lie said it was easy to soe
the end. By tbe necessary course of events, if left
to themselves, we must become, linaliy, two people.
It is impossible, under the deadly hatred which must
spring up between tne two great sections, if the
present causes are permitted to operate uncheck
ed, that we should continue under the same political
system. The conflicting elements would burst the
Union asunder, as powerful as arc the links which
hold it together. Abolition and the Union cannot
co-exist As the friend of the Union, I openly pro
claim it, and the sooner it is known the better. Tho
former may now be controlled, but in a short time,
it will be beyond the power of man to arrest the
course of events. We of the South will not, cannot
surrender our institution. The subversion of them
would drench the country in blood, and extirpate
one or other of the races. I quote his words,
and as I repeat them who is not struck with the in
spiration of liU utterance, and the fulfilment of his
prediction? What heart does not send up the
prayer, "I would his counsels and warnings had
been heeded." But they wcro regarded at the time
as the sickly abstractions of a dreamer and meta
physician. Men, in their impotence to reach the height of this
great arguraent. uot gifted with his far reaching sa
gacity, adopted the opposite policy. "Others, for a
while, seemed struggling 'ncath their argument, he,

deed of my mission is to know that Tennessee,
like Mississippi, will bear all, brave all, but never
submit to be ruled over by a Black Republican Ad
ministration. Events are crowding upon each other
with startling rapidity. The Rubicon is already
passed. Xulla relrorsun vestigia, is inscribed upon

baa flung to the wild winds free her banner of
State independence, and back from the Spirit

the arms and hearts of her fcumters and Marions,
her Pickens and Rutledges, now echoing m tones of
thunder in the ears of their descendants

'last torch or liberty snail burn men sieep me nicm

carnival not with slow and measured tread, but
with all her banners, waving, and ready to charge
with all her chivalry. Before I could doubt it-I
should have to obliterate the brightest pages of my
country's history ignore the undying laurels with
which fame decked the brow of the immortal Jack
son, on the plains of Chalmette and the more recent,
but as undvinc harvest of glory wliich were
gathered by ,her sons amidst the storming of Mon
torev. If sush a doubt were forced upon my mind
as a native of the State I would throw myself
upon her bosom, and In the language ot another, 1
would exclaim : Oh Earth, Earth, Earth 1 as did the
Hebrew Prophet when wearied out with the perver
sity of his countrymen, he turned to his native soil
and adjured that, to eeeif he could not arouse with
in it some answering spirit If such an appeal was
made to the soil of Tennessee, in such a cause, it
seems to me that tho very genius of the place
would spring forth, and trumpet tongued, sound
the call, which from the topmost height of her
mountains to the depths of her valleys would sum
mon her host to the rescue.
That somethinc must be done, and speedily done,
aye, before the ruins of Government shall pass into
the hands of our haughty and insolent foes, the
tamest submissionists admit Yieldiug to the senti
ment of resistance, wliich wells up from the great
popular heart of the South, her statesmen and pa

Vhat said the illustrious ex-President Fillmore in
his speech at Albany, in 1856, when contemplating
the very event which has occurred the election of
a sectional 1'resident and which, though not tbe
cause, is the occasion of the wide-spread excite
citemcnt at the South: "Can thoy," (referring to
the people of the North,) "have the madness, or the
folly, to believe that our Southern brethren would
submit to be governed by such a Chief Magistrate ?
Suppose that the South, having a mijontyof the
electoral "votes, should declare that they would have
only slaveholders for President and Vice-President
and should elect such by their suffrages to rule over
us at the North, do you think you would submit
No: not for a moment. "Do ,you' believe that' your
bouthern brethren arc less sensitive on this subject
than you are, or less jealous lof their rishts?
If you do, let mo tell you you are mistaken: and
therefore you must see that.if this sectional party
succeeds, it , leads inevitably to the destruction of
this beau til ill laono reared by our forefathers."
Again.-in his speech at liochester, the same season,
referring to the same event, he saidi "-the success
of such a party with such an object, must be a dis-
oiutoq ot the Union." :!J
wnac s.na the lion. nr. vaiiandigham. member
of Congress from 'Ohio! "I tell you, hs a Western

Nelson,) that when you of the South shall have at-

that frost will conceal: that steel and poison will
do their- work of destruction .to the human system;,
arid (half 1 await the slow process of experiment
to ascertain their rational and inevitable effects ?"
This was spoken in answer to the -question whether
the South would be justified in resistinir tho elec
tion of a Northern sectional candidate on a sectionaL
I quote a passage from a single other Northern
statesman, (Hon. Caleb Cushing,) on the same point.
After arguing to them the practical result of the
election of such a candidate, he says: "I repeat,
confidently, if Mr. Lincoln is elected, the Republi
cans will have to burst up at once, or attack the do
mestic rights of tho South. What, then, will the
people of the Southern States, attacked in'thcir con
stitutional rights, their domestic peace, their proper

they passively submit to be conquered subiects-of
New England? No. I do not hope, believe or doubt
what they will do. I know they will defend them
selves to the uttermost first with constitutional
means; in fine, with all the means of defence which
God and nature have committed to them; and if they
were not to do it, they would be recreant to the
blood of Washington, of Henry. Carroll, of Rut-

who are intent npon the overthrow of our constitu

the tocsin of civil war is sounded, and the land
is drenched with the blood of brothers, "I trust in
