We would romark that north ern men, who came lr the i South eigh icon or twenty years ago, and have be come identified with us, are generally u ue in our standard, and may be relied on j but those who have come amongst us within the last ten or twelve years ate, as a gefiera! tule adverse to the South and slavery. The reason of this distinction Is, thai of late yeais the peo ple of the North have ben pursuing Mr. Seward's advice as to the best mode of destroying slavery. '-Teach it, (says he,) under the parental roof, in your schools, and in your churches." Accordingly we see that nearly evory Northern, school book contains Aboli tionism, even those which are used in Southern schools. " '. " ' The consequence is, that the present generation are taught Abolitionism; they have listened to Abolition preach ers and lecturers; and they have heard their par-nts descant on the siu, iniqui ty and horroiB of slavery. Yet these young men are induced to come South on recount of the advantages of our cli mate and higher wages, Mid they re in our mid is t as preachers, teachers and editors. They are bold, manly and in telligent! and have a high opinion of thenisolvesj1 and of the country they carne from, arid a low estimation of those they are amongst.'' It is probable that whilst there is not a single Southern preacher, editor or teacher in the whole Notth, at least two thirds of the preachers, editors and teachers in the Southern Slates are Yankees. This vast host are true to their section of country, they extol its superior intelligence, virtue and enter prize, and are ever ready to speak diss paraglngly of Southern men, Southern hotspurs, and Southern chivalry. They aspire to give tone to Southern senti ment, and to lecture our greatest, a blest and purest men for daring to as sert the rights of the South, or resent the wrongs which are inflicted on us. Let. a. Washington City letter wri ter start a slander against the South, or the defenders of Southern institu lions, or let the correspondent of the Natchej Courier taunt us with cow ardice, charge the great' Southern movement as blustering and swagger ing, and that he always thought we would not fight, and hundreds of Yan kee presses throughout the South -take up the note and cliaunt ii in full cho- rus; and, strange to say, Southern men applaud the strain. ; ....., Bui let a Southern man say any thing about the Yankees, or attempt to place Southern character or valor on a footing with this resplendent people, and suddenly the whole host ot i ankee editors bristle up; their ire IS aroused, and they are astonished at the utiheard of audacity of so outrageous a thing as to say anything against Yaukeedom. Their columns are filled with glowing statements of the manifold blessings they have heaped upoii; us; they have built our cities, made our wharves, paved bur streets, carried on our com merce, instructed , our ignorance, and, by' their, intelligence and enterprize, redeemed us from barbarism.' 'Arid bavins sliown what a "great blessing thev are. then thev oo&il the phials of - j r -j r wrath or. the offending wight who dared f to offend so good and so sefu a pe"o- pe. At once, several,, hundred an kee pi esses in our midst pour out. their indignant denunciations against the devoted victim: no matter, what may be iVn imrirv of his ' life." 'hisMhtearllV 'of character, bis 'srtrn patriotism, or his long and brilliant public -semces, he will be'aUacked, and assailed, and be littled.'and belied,' with incessant ran cour, in every form which ingenuity and malice an dictate. ; .

And how was it with Senator Soulel Helared to allude to the del-' eteriousmfluenceofthe Yankeebought press Of Nev Orleans) and never be.! fore was such a how) and yell raised as this imprudent act called forth. The1 whol Yankee pack opened upon the unfortunate Senator, and as the tidings j spiead, five hundred Yankee pens were dipped in gall. . Senator Smle might lave aided lu the miserable trick ery and jugglery by which the South has been deprived of all participation in the territories of the United Stales; he might have burthenetThls coustiuiN ents with a tax to bribe from , slave holding Texas a purt of her territory to devote it to Fre'esoilism; he. might have voted for a bill to free negroes because the master intended to sjII theid, and thus pave the way for Abolitionism, ahd for all this he would be commend ed; but let him intimate that a Norths ern press is not the best counsellor and adviser of the South, and he commits the unpardonable sin, and no measure of denunciation is severe enough for him. i ', . .,- ! ,' Gov Collier on Secession. I assume that the right of secession is a clear right, reserved to the 'people of each member of iho confederacy up-' on entering into the Union. The tenth article of the amendments to the con stitution declares that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the slates, are reserved to the states res pectively, or to the people." Iii no part of thai instrument have the people of the several states' bound themselves to maintain a perpetual union. True, the preamble declares the object of the constitution to bo the formation of 'a more perfect union, &c.,' for 'the peo ple of the United States and their pos terity.' These terms only create a po litical partnership to continue for an in definite period, or until any member supposing it did not observe the pur poses of its creation, thought it proper to withdraw from it. Each party must of necessity judge for itself whether the articles of association have' been violated, ami whether ii will put off its allegiance to them. This right to de termine whether the compact has been infracted, results from the , failure to provide a common arbiter. In such a paper as this, t can do nothing more than mealy stale these propositions, without ar,uingor proving them by an extended reference to what has been said by others on the subject. I may however, be permitted to sny, that my opinion upon the point was formed by leading the debates on Foote's resold lion in the United States Senate, in 18 30 strengthened by the explanations of, and criticisms on General Jackson's proclamation in 1832. '.With all defer ence I would say that this right has beeh very recently so clearly stated, and ably defended, that it is difficult for any one. no matter how little in formed bf political and constitutional law, not to understand and admit it. But have-the people of this , state made up their minds to secede or are they willing to forbear still longer, in the hope that Congress will be restrain ed by a love of union, if not justice, from pressing measures, which, if per sisted in, will lead to such a resultl 1 have already said they have agreed up fe . j , f. of ( em ari on no definite, course ot action; yet l strongly disinclined to withdraw .from the confederacy, until other measures have, been unsuccessfully triad, to re. sist further aggression. , (', ... , ''A threat to employ force by trie fed eral government, to coerce the. south1 ern 'states or any one of them; into a bedience to the behests of Congress or the executive of the Union,' 'excites iu suppressive' emotions of indignation. So far from intimidating, it is calciilas ted to widen the . breach, and, drive to desperation; a people who are sensitive in the extreme a a sense of wiongs inflicted by those who were under the.

The' right' bf revolution- is o natural right.' Secession1 is conven tional Revolution is a right, we as sert,, in resisting oppression. r 'Secess sionisa withdrawal from a compact. The one Is always accompanied; -by ;.anj appeal to. at;n)8 -ino: .uuimu. ug ..( Th'eio is no reason why the o.lljer should not be peaceable. Two or nioie par- lies, for mutual interest, enter into b partnership to endure while it is agree able and advantageous to the contract ing parlies, each surrendering to the other certain individual rights to be, used and enjoyed in common, but re taining certain other rights to be en joyed by themselves individually, arid not by the concern. , The duration of the partnership is not specified. Very well. One of the parties after awhile perceives that the advantage of the con cern accrues almost enliiely lo the oth ers, and that they are even encroach ing on the rights and interests he spe cifically reserved . for himself in a word that the partnership has ceased to bo desirable and may be ruinous to him. He gives notice to his partners that he will withdraw from the concern, and they have no right to prevent him. He takes hia portion of the stock, makes bis bow, and peaceably retires. This is Secession. If he should seize a musk etrush into the establishment de nounce his associates as a set of scoun drels, tear up the articles, and force them to enter into a new one more a-, greeable to himself that would be Revolution. In this homely way we illustrate the difference between them. "The right of secession is acknowl edged by every . lepublican statesman. Virginia, Kentucky and the South gen erally, regard it as a fundamental right incidental to the - compact of Union. The Federalists always denied, and now deny It, Lomsianajournalists sneer at it!" Oh, the Solons!" Louisiana Statesman, For Southern Traitors. .The following extract from a late speech by the Hon. David Hubbard, of Aladama, in Congress is worthy of the attention of every man, who is a resi dent of the South. As Mr. Hubbard said, it is '.he conduct of Southerners, who have turned against the South, that is the real cause of all our difficuK tiesi , The Traitors in our midst en courage and strengthen the Notth,; in her continued aggression on us. Every sensible man at the : North, has a con tempt for these men, who are eating thei- OWN BLOOD, just as the Eng lish Earl had for Bruce. Will any of them do as Bruce did when reproached by the Englishman. We hope so, ., "Before I conclude, I wish to Bpeak a word to Southern . members, .and through them to the Southern people, upon the subject of our own miscon duct, arising from our jealousies and rivalship among one another.' It is our own divisions which have enabled the .Northern section of the Union to encroach upon the rights of our consti tuents., And our conduct here for the last ten years reminds me of an inci- dent.repeated in history, when England was trying to teduce Scotland to sub mission by arms. Sir William . Wal lace was the patiiotic leader of the Scots, and England, like oiir Northern opposers, had seduced many of the Scoiisli leaders into her armies, Rob ert Bruce among others. In these con tests, it is related that one day,' after a hard fought battle, Jbryce sat, down to meal with the English nobles, with his hand all besmered wflh the blood of his own countrymen slain in the battle; upon seeing which, a haughty English earl Could not conceal his disgust. "Look,' said he, 'at that bcoit, see how he eats his own blood." The insulting taunt , although true, cut Bruce to the heart. , He could not eat another mors sel," but quietly rose, from the. table without uttering a word. That night Bruce joined the standard of his' coun trymen, and never rested or slept, qui ellyuntil every hostile foot had been driven far beyond the "Scottish bor der.":V! ,. : . -'' ;":;. :: ! j. I, sir never heap a Southern man speak against his section of country, or read a southern paper opposed to us, hut I think that some cool, calculating Northerner, like the English nobleman, is expressing his disgust 'FOR THE FELLOW WHO EATS HIS OWN BLOOD." J When will every true hearted South erner, like Bruce, leave the camp of the oppressor, and join the standard of Ins own ' country f Until then, the North; will neither' regard our rights nor respect our feelings," : On! Rev. Neightiugale's toast was: Our fire fingitiei? May they be like old 'maids, "ever ready and never vvant- cd.

The tragedy of Nacogdoches,' arid the romantic incidents which led td the Texan war of Independence find their parallel only In the Roman history of Lucretiaand the elder Bruius. Juan Costa was" a person of great influence and biavery in the wild forests, but he fell under tbe displeasuie of Santa An na, and bis minton, Pedraa, the cora maudant of Nacogdoches, was sent s ai rest him. He arrested the father at his supper table, attended by bis only daughter a young girl of surpassing beauty arid intelligence. He loaded him with chains aud cast him into pris on, notwithstanding her tears and en treaties. , Finally, he proposed to free the father, if the daughter would con sent to sacrifice her innocence and hon or. She rejected the infamous propo silion with a blow in the face, when the armed ruffiah'swore aborrible Oath to execute his will on them both, and . than' . :-. i .'; '.,,, -, With dark eyes, tearless,, , glassy, fixed as those of a corpse, yet flashing a double portion of luminous fire, she mounted a horse and hurried away wildly around the country. She halt ed at every house, no matter whether Mexican or American, and rehearsed, in tones of thrilling horror, her fath er's wrongs and her own. All timid modesty, all weakness, bad vanished from her tongue, utterly consumed by the scorchiug, thirst for vengeance. She painted, in passion's fiery language, and with awful minuteness, the facts Of the damning deed; she bared her virgin bosom, and "snowed "the livid marks of the ravisher's fingers among the, mazes of those azure veins, along the surface of that expanse of snow, now so polluted and soiled, but before pure fas the gleam of an angel's wing. And still; wherever the beautiful maid wandered, a deafening yell of wrath and vengeance rose up against the tyrants. The people of both races aud all classes flew to arms, appointing a general rendezvous for the 24th of June, at tbe residence of the absent and now imprisoned Juan Costa, J'' It was there debated by the people, as to the mode of attack, and who should be their leader) but nothing being agreed on, the whole assemblage bid fair to break up In confusion,' when a tall and powerfully built stranger, who had just entered Texas from, tlm States, came forward and addressed the multitude as follows : , , "I am a stranger, but I am also , a man; and I owe my lifo, soul, body, health, happiness all all to a wo man my mother ! And if I,turn a deaf ear to the prayers 6f.,an innocent woman, asking my aid against a vil lain, may both my mother and my God curse me ! I go for one, and shoul.i you all stay behind alone to fight Col. Pedras and his armed ravishers of your wives and daughters." ; The speech was received with thrco tremendous cheers, and then a geneiN al shout, that seemed lo shake the soli d earth, uttered the first peal of the rev olution. ' " 1 "We will go! Death to the tyrant Freedom for? Texas! and the, , giant shall be our leader !' . . And then, for the first time,' was heard in the land of the wild oak, -a name destined to become an echo to the pulsation of4 all hearts the name of Thomas J. Rusk. s.m; i-i. ' , c ' The next day he led his raw trooj. to the attack of Nacogdoches, and stormed: every position against im mense odds, after an assault of four hours, the carnage being dreadful n both sides; and fortunately, among the slain, was found the body of the atro cious Ferdinand Pedras. ' ' ' ' Such was the debut of ftdsk in Te' as; and from that day his popularity has gone on steadily increasing, with out even a' transitory eclipse, or ho much as a cloud to dim its splendor. In vain, for three years, Gen. Cos manned his , arrest. Mexico j had trot soldiers enough to take him, and u 1845-6 he assisted to chase the last of these out of the country..
