"Washington, Dec. 13, 1S50.
President Fillmore's CoursePo
sition of Seward.
I see there are all sorts of speculations on foot
as to the manner in which the President will
treat those Whigs who are disposed to carp at or
upset the compromise measures passed at the
last session of Congress. Whether Mr. Fillmore
has addressed private letters, or letters which he
did not care to avow publicly, to particular friend
of his administration in the city of New York, is
of no consequence now. that Mr. Fillmore's opin
ions are on record in his published message, -He
there plainly expressed his satisfaction with
the measures called the compromise, and avow
ed his determination- so far as it could be done
in a paper of that ort to nphpld and maintain
them. It would seem to follow as a corrollary,
then, that those who oppose; these measures or
any one of them, cannot be friendly to his ad
ministration, and as a corrollary we may safely
assume that those who are not friendly to ' his
administration will not be considered his person
al friends. , . ' . a - f
. -i I think that Mr. Seward is too far sighted a
?tnan to attempt now even to assume an attitude
hostile to the administration) - It would" be "ex
cessively ' imprudent in - him to do so now, and
would cause not only the unavoidable defeat but
the annihilation of his party.'"- He must now luff
to the wind, keep althands on deckTahd make a
reef or two in bis topsail if he "would weather
the gale. Depend on it, we shall have peace for
' the remainder of. thia-sesion, and perhaps longer.
If an attemptis made to,runan ultra Southern
candidate for the Presidency, ah ultra free-soil
candidate will come up and be run by the North;
but the result will not be that the,elecjtion w ill
go into the House; it will only have the effect of
electing the Union ticket , byuari. overwhelming
: majority of the -fifpulous Jlmericanus, and not the
dupes of the htimbnggers. . That's tthe whole
programme of the next Presidential election.

character of genuine .republicanism has jcuuI

If there- is one act ,of our whole political life
which we review with , peculiar complacency, it
is that -under' all the.; circumstances of the case,
and vith all , the issues presentedvyo assisted in i.

ideniv of the United - States. M While a detailed

we tnay remark, that in view of the absorbing is
sue which then as now agitated the country the
recent repudiation of . Gen. Cass by a large num-,
ber of his amuhefn "friends, justifies ourrefusal
to supt0rt.him7 If it does nor vindicate our vote
for his opponent.- k: " -
The readers of our paper were never at any
loss to understand our position- in regard to the
important issue referred to the slavery contro
versy. Ve are and always have been a stedfast
advocate of the doctrine- that Congress is con
stitutionally bound to pass alP necessary regula
tions for the protection - of property of all " kinds,
including that in slaves, wherever, itexcreises
exclusive jurisdiction. - With these "views wc
should have felt ourselves alike recreant to the
cause of political orthodoxy, and the just claims
of- the South,' had we jiot repudiated ; the- doc
trines of the Nicholson letter and withheld our
support from their author. ' y ; '
It was under these circumstances, that several
prominent friends of Gen. Tnylor's "election so
licited us to occupy the posf which we now hold,
for the purpose ' of sustaining the 'cause which
we in Common expotised. - Their liberal propo
sitions, and kind partiality, "which' will always
be gratefully'remembered by us,' could not be
disregarded, and we were thus ushered upon
what was to us a new and untried theatre ,;. '
'."The subsequent history of the country with
its sectional convulsions the: various plansof
pacification the disorganization of political par
ties, is yet present in the scenes and effects which
are still developing themselves.
In this portentous crisis of the country our po
sition was promptly taken. -, We advocated the
policy of yielding to. the unavoidable results of
past history, as regards - the denouement ' of the
slavety question. We prefereds any settlement
of the question which saved the honor and po
litical equality of the south, to the hazard of dis
solution, believing that so ifar as . the extension
of slavery was practically concerned, nothing
that Congress either did, or omitted to do, would
0 - .
ultimately overrule the great, law of self interest
as applicable to the wants of that country over
whose institutions we were contendinsr. - When
the south secured her honor in the death of pro-
visoism, and her rights in regard to fugitive slaves
we thought that the fate of slavery in the terri
tories might safely be left to the prospective for
mation of State Governments by Ithe people
themselves. . d ,'. . ... , - , .. . . .- .
With these views, we early advocated the pro
priety of acquiescing in the adjustment bills of
the last congress although they failed to provide
special enactments for the protection; of slavery,
in the territories. We are as well satisfied as the
most ultra can be of the unfavorable effects of
that settlement, so. far as the emigration of slave
property is Concerned but we still believe that
the temporary exclusion of such property from
the territories will be cured by, the decision of . a
more sovereign tribunal than Congress a state
constitution, and upon principles nr ore .immuta
ble than a sickly philanthropy the great law of
self interest, .'i,-,. k -Yr.i. v"-
During the whole progress of this threatening
controversy we have endeavored tto regulate our
course by the most enlarged, and catholic prin
ciples of tolerance and kindness. Between the
Missouri Compromise, and the Adjustment, while
we conceived preference, we were ready to ac
cept that settlement most agreeable to the south,
since the safety, of the Union and not our hum
hie plan of settlement,was , the absorbing topic
oi solicitude.'.. . . ... H. -j .vw '-. - 1
AVe have, always made every allowance for
that smarting sense of injury and injustice which
we think is ordinately indulged by 'the extreme
opponents of the Adjustment.. -We have hence
scrupulously refrained- froni every thing at all
calculated to irritate their pride, or aggravate the
discord which had been unfortunately engender
ed. pur motto has been to'cxtenuate nothing
or set-down aught in malice.'f y-irU'--.-
Under the general operation of.such an influ
ence, we regard no man as an alien or, enemy,
simply because he deprecates theimperfections
of the jiate settlement. If in his purposes of re
sistance, as it is terrned, he will spare the Union
rthe great treasuryof the past and earnest - of
thejuturefWe will still have fellowship with him,
If, his measure . onredress; is limited to. theen
couragement of southern industry, in nil its bran
ches, and by nil practical means, we will from
the bottom of our . heart respond-amenl and
will endeavor to emulate Lis worthy example."

Gentlemen ' , Jv .'. , I v '..y'CJ
i . I received yesterday morning, on my
return home, after an absence of some day?,
your letter,, of the 3Qth uit.rrequesting me
to atienua political mecung.ui virruruuu
on the first'day. of your , Circuit , Court, on
which occasion, :you say,, an attempt ..will
be made to send forth a submusion voice
from the county of .Carroll.';. , , 1
I Just recovering from protracted.. illness,
it will be impossib'e for me.to 1 comply, with
your request, without endangering serious
ly niy health, if not my life., i,ft.,,. . .. ,.1
Allow me, however, gentlemen, in reply
to. your kind invitation, to say that I should
deeply sympathise with you and the friends
of the. South in your county, a county re
markable for the intelligence, moral worth
and hospitality of its citizen; shou'd it be
made to titter the craven voice of,submi?-
sion to the wrongs, past and present, which
a Northern majority in . Congress, with
Southern aid, have mliu t:d uponus. ,"v x
A very thorough canvass ot your coun
ty last Fall,, satisfied me that. the . body, of
the people were true in their allegiance to
the State and indignant at the wrongs
which then ' threatened us, and which, in
the name of compromise, have since been
fully consummated. Should she now ap
prove these measures by tame submission
without even ' the lowest grade of resist
ance comp?aiht,protest,ror remonstrance
.- it will 'be-theirefu't of misapprehension
of the issues involved between the Noith
and Hcuth.' '.t j:r
It is not to be concealed that the frier ds
of jiindcnt action in this State, though in a
large majority- between the ".imprudence
of a few, immediate ' secessionists and the
adroitness and indu.'trious zeal of a few
politicians' who are endeavoring to save
themselves and '-the Union, (which, by the
way, no one desires to destroy while it is
worth - preserving) have been thrust into
back ground, or assigned a false position in
public estimation. - ; -1
The friends of the rights and equality of
the States, (as I understand them,) while
disapproving of the late" measures (which.
in the name of compromise, robbed ' the
South of her interest in the vastrdomaiii
which she assisted in acquiring,) and claim
ing that Congress is boundunder the Con
stitution; to protect the property and per
sons of all the citizens of all the States
alike, in any territory overv which it has
legislative power, are still not in favor pf
ultra measures of resistance at this timc
While they respect and even3 admire the
patriotic ardor of the few Who advocate se
session as an immediate remedy for exist
ing evils, and believe they are less danger
ous to the Union, and more reliable for the
South than the free-soil advocates of the
compromise measures; yet they cannot ap
prove the present application of their rem
edy. Whie they -recognise the right of
secession, they are still desirous of resort
ing to more temperate and prudent meas
ures of resistance, which, by touching the
"pccunitiry interests of the North, may in
duce reflection, and preserve the Union in
its original purity and equality." '
The - extreme zeal of the non action or
submission politicians to make the impres
sion that all who do not 'agree with them
are disunioiiists, and to create party di
visions when no real 'difference'-should ex
ist, is" alike ridiculous and suicidal to the
Smith.' r V. v , .
'Our, salvation, and -the" safety of. the
Union, are, a.ike dependant 011 the preser
vation' of the reserved , sovereignty, - inde
pendence and equality of the several States.
These can only.be preserved, at this time,
by the united voice and power of the South:
So long as we arc wiiling and able to main
tain our constitutional rights, and. agree a
mong ourselves, that .they. shalL be preserv
ed, no aggression Avill be attempted, a It is
only when the friends of thevNorth, sprung
up in the South for party purposes, and be
come wijling to sacrifice- our rights and in
stitution?, by con vention.and' platforms, to
make Presidents, that either the. South or
the.Tjnion'areJn danger.. ,-Divi.-ion in Xhe

create- for even a'minority must have their
organ,, and a minority, party is generally
ample .to support themVi; Division is there
fore much more important to them thanJK
union of the people on. correct principles.
Notwithstanding the mighty efforts which
are being made, I believe the South will
not only be. united upon- moderate meas

to obtain our just rights so far as we may
