the profound regard I entertain for the
wisdom, firmness, and patriotism of my
fellow-citizens of Georgia, will not justi-

honor and obligations of the people of
this Stale to the country, its laws, and its
siitulions, I doubt not will receive their
Warm support, in an hour of danger, when
your institutions are in jeopardy your
feelings wantonly outraged your social
organization derided your honor deeply
wounded, and the Federal Constitution
violated by a scries of aggressive meas
ures, all tending to the consumation of one
object, the abolition of slavery. The
common territory of all which you have
an equal right to occupy and enjoy, has
been denied you in the solemn form of
law, under prepenses the most shallow
it well becomes you to assemble, to delib-f-'ate
and counsel together for your mu-
tual preservation and safety, whatever it
may cost. The extraordinary events by
which we are encompassed and the meas
ures will demand or justify, must be left,
as it should be, to the patriotism, firmness,
and prudence of the people themselves.
Upon them devolves the duty of redress
ing present wrongs, and providing other
safeguards for future security neither
the one nor the other of which, however,
will ever' be effectually accomplished, un
til by patriotic efforts, perfect harmony
and concord of feeling are restored, and
concert of action produced among the
people of the South.
In view, therefore, of the atrocious
Free.-soil sentiment and policy, not mere
ly of the non-slavcholding Stales, but of
the Government of the imminent peril
to which the institution of slavery is re
duced by the -act of Congress, admitting,
the State of California into the Union with
a constitution containing the principle of
the fVilmot Proviso, and in defiance of
our warning and earnest rcmons!ranp

c j - - v
diversity oi opinion exists in some of the
Southern Slates, as to the proper mode, of
redressing and avoiding the
dangers, which all must see and feel; let
me, fellow eitizens, earnestly entreat you
to cultivate for each other, n deep abi
ding sentiment of fraternal regard and
confidence, and approach the task from
which there is no escape, of deciding upon
your duty to Georgia and the country,
with a firm step, but not without calm,
deliberate and patient investigation, con
sulting neither fears or dangeis on the one
hand, nor permitting yourselves from ex-
asperated feelings of wrong or. the other,!
to be rashly urged to Extreme Measures,!

Dangerous Exploit. At Baltimore,
on Thursday afternoon, Ilerr Ryninger
accomplished the feat of walking on a sin
gle wire from the roof of the Powhattan
House, foot of Broadway, to the Euro-,

Broadway. The wire was about tho
thickness of those used on the telegraphic
line, and extended about four hundred,
feet, commencing at a height of forty feet,
and gradually descending to the ground.
This wonderful feat was performed with
the greatest ease and facility .and appa

J3The Capitol of the United States
is to be improved very greatly, as will be
seen by the following from the Union:
The Senate were yesterday engaged on
the civil and diplomatic appropriation bill.
They added an amendment providing
$100,000 for erecting two wings to the
Capitcl, for the purpose of making more
convenient halls for the two houses of
Congress an arrangement whicrr we
trust will be executed without delay, for
the present hall of the House of Represen
tatives is decidedly one of the worst in
lhe world for hearing; and, secondly, they
appropriated $10,000 for the accommoda
tion ofthe Turkish ambassador, who has
recently arrived in the United States.
He is now in this city, dressed neatly,
but in the extravagant style of the Turk
ish costume. He visited the hall of the
House of Representatives yesterday, and
received a cordial welcome.
Machine for Milking Cows. A very
curious but simple apparatus for milking
cows was exhibited at the rec nt Stato
Fair in Albany. The milking of his cows
costs a dairyman much time, trouble apd
embarrassment. This contrivance gets
- rid of all the labor, and spare nine-tenths
more than four or five minutes.
