Previous to the passing of the bill in
the Senate to abolish the slave trade in
; the District of Columbia, Mr. Seward
moved an amendment to abolish slavery
also therein which was rejected, 5 yeas to
-45 nays Messrs. Chase, Dodge, Hale,
: Seward and Upham voling for it. On the
17lh inst. on the second reading of a bill
providing for the punishment of persons
enticing slaves from the District, Mr
.Hale moved an amendment so as to abol
ish slavery in the District, which -was
negatived 9 to 41. Messrs. Baldwin.
Chase, Davis of Massachusetts, Dodge of
Wisconsin, Ewing, Hale, Hamlin, Sew-,
ard and Winthrop, voting for it. Mr.
Upham was absent, or he would doubtless
from his previous vote have voted in the
affirmative. And Mr. Dayton accompa
nied his negative vote with the declara-
tion, "I am not prepared to vote for a!
proposition of that kind at this moment,
m and under existing circumstances." Thus because its Constitution-was inconsistent
wc see that in the short space of a few with the Inderal Constitution, but because
. it did not prohibit slaverv, in open viola-
davs, the open advocates of the above lk)n of consli(utiona, r,lts. and Inving a
proposition, ' doubled their number, and majority at the time, passed the comprom
the Southern Press says "how many were rse line of 3S 30, and prohibited slavery
waiting like Mr. Dayton nobody can tell,
but certain it is among the naj sare many
whom every body knows to be no friends
to slaver', but avowed friends of free-soil,
which is one of the many aliases of abo
lition." Some of the "ultra' Union men, recent
ly avowed that the passage of the -above
measure by Congress would be sufficient
cause for "revolution" on the part of t he
South. Yet in less than a week, after the
"adjustment" measures had been passed,
its advocates doubled their, number in the
U. S. Senate, heretofore regarded as the
most grave, deliberate, and conservative
body in the world. Surely this is a pro
gressive age.
From the Newbern Republican
(Jpln his speech delivered in the

in his senses believes Congress will ever
be guilty either of the 'outrage or the fol
ly of abolishing slavery in this District,
excepting of course iho-se fanatics who
think the Constitution is an agreement
with Hell."
Nine Senators voted to abolish slavery
in the District the other day, and among
them Mr. Winthrop, for whom Mr. Stan
ly voted for speaker of the House. Mr.
Stanly then voted for one of those "fanat
ics who think the Constitution an agree
ment with hell.' "
To the Editor of the Tarboro' Press.
Sir: Thc northern cry is, tlniOn!
Union!: while the southern cry is, the
Constitution and equality of rights,
guaranteed by the north and south when
they formed and ratified the Federal
Constitution. The. south has kept her
faith, and has suffered millions on mil
lions of dollars by northern aggressions
and a violation of faith to the compact.
1st. For thc sake of the Union. Virgin-
ia gave up her Northwest Territory, as
large as all the old thirteen Stales. " This
was slave territory.
2nd. The Ordinance of 1787, abolish
ing slavery in the above territory, (by
northern voles chiefly,) was an act of gross
injusiice lo the southern Stales; and Mr.
iviauison saui, "without the shadow of
constitutional authority;" yet for the sake
r4U TT:.. ...
u uiuii, v.igima and the southern
Mates submitted to be plundered.
3rd. When Virginia made the cession
not more than five States were to be form
vuuuioi saiu territory. j he north has
ot kept the faith, and yet the south fo
the sake of the Union submits to aggres
4th. We know that slaves are a belte
population than free negroes, yel five
slaves count only as three free negroes;
thereby diminishing our Representatives
in Congress. The South submitted to
this wrong also, for Uie sake of the Union
5lh. The north now claims a right to
take more of our Representatives in Con
gress, and proposes to amend the Consti
tution to suit fanatics; and therefore says,
no new slave State shall be admitted into
the Union, and thereby deprive us of our
guaranteed representation.
6ih. Direct taxes were to be propor
tioned amongst the States in the ratio of
their representation; this constitutional
provision has not been adhered to, and
out of about 1050 millions of dollars, the
amount of customs levied by this govern
ment, the south has paid 7S9 millions,
while the north has paid only 249 millions,
instead of her rateable share of 605 mil
lions, and thereby has plundered the south
out of 35G millions of dollars and yet
they are not content and still are bent on
further aggressions.
7ih. The Constitution provides that fu
gitivc slaves shall be given up, &c. Yet
in the face of the compact, the north has
refused to deliver up our slaves and is
still encouraging a gang of robbers and
thieves to steal the property of the south,
in violation of law and the Constitution,
and still wc hear the cowardly cry of
"Union," where there is no union. The
torics and traitors of the Revolution did
no more.
Sth. In 1S19, the north opposed the
admission of Missouri into the Union, not
north of it. Still the south submitted to
this aggression onher constitutional rights
for the sake of the Union.
9th. The noith now spurns

36 30, and claims all the territory south ;

and robbers south of us, for the use tf
rogues that bid defiance to ail la .V and or-j
Jer, and set at nought the Constitution, '
contrary to southern rights, morality, and
good government? Justice forbids it,
good faith forbids it. The security of the
Union oflh;c once happy States forbids
it. Every thins dear to the rinhts of
v c r . O
reemcn, to the prosperity of the cdnfede-
racy, and to liberty itself, forbids it. And
the mass of the people of the southern
States, in defence of their constitutional
ights, the preservation of their wives and
children will forbid it. None but rob-
bers, cowards and submissionists, that
will survey thc whole ground, will advo
cate ncgro.slealing.
Thc north cannot live and prosper
without a union with the south, while the
south can live and prosper without the
north. If equality of rights and justice
are not secured to the south, and her
rights are respected, we say there is no
union. Therefore the south snould be
fore submitting further, form a union and
provide ways and means to protect our
just rights.
On Monday next, the present session
of Congress will close, and both Houses
are rapidly disposing of the business be
fore them.
The Senate was engaged, on Monday
last, in discussing several Appropriation
Bills. The House passed the Naval Ap
propriation Bill, with an amendment abol
ishing Flogging in the navy.
In the House of Representatives, on
the lGtb; Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania,
gave-notice that on to morrow, or some
subsequent day, he would ask leave to
bring in the following bills: ;
A bill to alter and amend the existing
revenue laws, so as to afford reasonable
protection and encouragement to Ameri
can labor; .
A1 bill to abolish , slavery in the Terri
tory of Utdh;" .
bill to repeal so much of the acts es
tablishing territorial governments in New
Mexico and Utah as recognizes slavery in
said Territories, and as pledges the nation
to admit new slave States into the Union;
A bill to repeal and annul the Fugitive
Slave law, passed September, 1850.
From the Southern Press,
More Spoliation. The bill to grant
the public lands of Oregon to actual set
tlers, has past the Senate. It provides
for the donation, of 320 acres to each
family, native or foreign, whether natu
ralized or not.
People of the South! You arc now, by
the lute adjustment, excluded from nearly
. iti
ait uie immense puunc domain, except
upon the condition that you renounce
your slave property and the institutions
you prefer. And the lands, thus wrested
from you are givzn not only to Northern,
but to unnaturalized European emi
grants. The policy of Ibis Government,
ofyow Government, is now to take your
property and give it lo foreigners to pre
vent you from occupying it you, by
whose valor, and treasure, and labor this
land was acquired.
Your right to a share of this land was
as valid and as sacred as lo your own
homesteads, it was as much vours bv
natural, public, or civil law as any proper
ty you own, or any people .own. It has
been coifiscalcd already in Oregon, and
soon will be in the other Territories and
States, where public lands remain.

relieve themselves of the presence oftheir
colored brethren. In all the winning va-
jriations of which tuneful cant and hypo

song of emigration to Liberia to that
African Eden is chanted in full chorus
by the whole band, and their anxious af

and expecting large accessions in the way

we learn from the following paragraph in
the Baltimore Sun9 in which it is assert
ed as an item of news, without any com
menUwhatever: -
The Ohio Colonization Society has
purchased a tract of territory on the Coast
of Africa, with a view of settling it as far
as practicable with colored emigrants from
that State. Ohio being on the borders of
of runaways and emancipated slaves.
In anticipation of future evils from an
undue fit op or lion of that class of popu
lation, they favor the colonization pro
ject as best for both whites and blacks.
. Vicissitudes. The editor :.of the New
Or leans Delta, who is a friend of Senator
Foote says: :
"The General came tothis city some
years ago,-with the view of being admitted
to the bar.; He was examined about the
same time we were. He was rejected
we'were admitted. He is now a Senator,
and wc a poor editor.".
New Cars and Locomotive. Two
new Cars have been lately added to the
means of travel on our Road. These were
necessary at the present time to accommo
date the increased travel on the Road, and
to make up for two Cars in a slate of
blockade beyond Quankey Creek.
These Cars we look upon as beyond
the reach of a puff. The one we examin
ed is finished in tire very best style and
6rnamcnted with superior taste. They
would be called splendid Cars on any
road in the Union. , They will seat 50
passengers each " They were manufactur
ed by Richard Imlay of New York.
There- has also been added a new Loco
motive Engine, called the Mechanic, of
power sufiicjent to make 35 miles per
hour with a lrain.
Wc are rejoiced to find the enterprising
spirit of the Directors ol the Hoard, rise
with the increased business of the Hoard
and the public favor. Those who have de
plored their losses in the Stock of this
Hoard, may now look for better things

in perspective. JVilminglon Com.
