1VEDXESDAY, All'ST 21, . 1860. Horns Asl After a three weeks' holiday, frolicking about generally, and enjoying out-self particularly, ire are again at our post Our letters, written from ttie different stopping places, thanks to Uncle Sam, have not all got here yet We may here after have something to say about the political aspect of the country through which we passed. Correspondents shall be attended to as soon as possible. Acknowledgment. AVe are indebted to Mr. S. M. Shannon, of Adams' Express Co., for New Orleans papers in advance of the mail. A Uo, to Mr. Barrett, of the same Co., for the Tery latest papers from New York. AUo, to M. C. Allen, of the same Co., for late New York and Cincinnati papers. yf riveVenti Reward. Tins magnificent sum of money will be cheer fully paid to " that ingenious mortal" who shall account, in a satisfactory manner, for the appear ance of raosqutioes in Oxford, and inform us how, without "bars," we can prevent them from an noying us o'nights, w hen we are endeavoring to woo "Tired Nature's tweet restorer, balmy Sleep." f Is it true f A kuxok is in circulation here, to the effect that a proposition was niado, in the Bull and Ev erett Club of this place, on Saturday last to in vite Emer$on Ether idge toconie here and speak. VTc doubt this, because wo have not heard that any one was ejected, from the meeting ; and we think it but fair to give our Cell friunds the benefit of that doubt mm ' I '" y The University Campus. Tiieiie aro hundreds of persons former and present students of tho University, and others w ho will be sorry to learn that, of all tho mag nificent old trees that once adorned the campus, and with which so many dear associations arc connected, naught now remains wive a few till, unsightly stumps. They have been topped," and transformed, in appearance, into skeleton trunks of "squatterite" trees. It is said that they will eventually be improved bj the tnutila tim to which they have been subjected ; but wo fear tho promised improvement will not occur in our time. It is doing t.'ood. Mil. La au's speech, huit Saturday, is said, by several Opposition men, to have been entirely satisfactory to them. He cleared up questions which they had not previously understood j and, in consequence, they now comprehend the arti fices of those who have endeavored to mislead them. 1 The Cror. AVs have full and reliable information from ev ery portion of the county in regard to the crops. Tho crop of corn is a full average, for the county at largo, though there are a few localities in which it is unusually short This crop, as we have heretofore stated, is made ; but the crop of cotton, which has promised, until within a few days past to exceed tho average production, may yet be considerably shortened by the rust which has made its appearance in various plan tations; though it spreads so slowly that our planters still have reason to expect an ordinary crop, The Weather. Shortly after the date of our last issue, the weather, which had been unusually cool for this season, grew warmer and wanner until it becamo quite oppressive. On Saturday and Sunday last, the dust was to uso tho lanpiin jo of a learned friend of ours "rampant ' diffusive, and fugi tive ;" but a refreshing rain fell on Monday, w liicli lias tempered the fervid heat of the atmosphere, and transmuted each active particle of dust into a " sqimttcritc" t m Onr Towb. Tub various "improvements," in the matter of new building!, which we have hithorto mention ed, are all in a slate of forwardness, and, when completed, will change, very much for the better, the appearance of Oxford. Business, at present lit its that state of stagna tion which is usual in the month of August ; but our Mercliants are making preparations for an ear. Iy and activebusiness season. In less than a mouth from now, the exercises of the University will be resumed; and the return of the students, of it self, will sufiice to restore to our slumbering vill age an appearance of something having life about it S A Good Man Gone. W much regret to hear of the death of Capt Elexzeb Ckabtuee, Vice President of Comiuis sioners of Emigration, New York City. Cspt Crabtrec was widely known through the coun try, and beloved by all his acquantanccs. -A more extended notice of his public services is copied into another column. With his bereaved friends in Oxford we deeply sympathise, and can say to them, in the language of another: " There arc two sources of comfort even in the loss of so noble a man. One is the love of God experienced in this life in such a career ; and the other is the love of God promised to such faithful servants of his in the life to come." Personal. Tns Hon. Jakes F. Trotter, the new Law Professor in the University of Mississippi, was in town yesterday, in excellent health and spirits. We regret to learn that he will not be able to cs taUish his family here before the end of the year; though he will come here himself at the opening of the session. Plank Walk to the Campos. Fo the information and comfort in anticipar tion of those students of the University who re tain a vivid recollection of the days and nights when H was impossible to visit or return front Oiford without navigating through an expanse of mud which had no bottom," and which, in adhesiveness, went far beyond "SpauUlins' Pre pared Glue " because you could never get out of it, without help, or rcmovs it from your cloth ing, witbont an expenditure of money wholly on suited to the means of students we state, with pleasure, that the Plank Walk from the Campus to Oxford is programing. From the University grounds to the corner of Mrs. Evans lot, it is al ready completed. V' trust, that " in the course of human e vents," the corporation oi Oxford, the citizens, or totmbody else having an interest In the matter, ill continue; the walk to the public square.

OcTitW-nvm rrnm ahrnad, who d-irc 'to vi; it the University, j The Speech of lion. LQ.C, Lamar. Os Saturday last (the 18tn inst) thia gen tleman addressed his constituents at the Court llouse In Oxford.' Tho room was thronged to its utmost capacity; and the crowded auditory listened to the speaker with an almost breathless stillness, which was interrupted only by the numerous bursts of applause, which indicated their approval of what lie said, as some shallow sophism was exposed, some great principle vindicated, or some lofty appeal addressed to) the patriot ism of his hearers. He spoke for upwards of two hours, but was . compelled, by physical exhaustion, to desist long before he had con cluded tho discussion of all the questions upon which he had proposed to epeak. He intimated that ho would, at au early day, again appear before the people of Lafayette, and continue the discussion from tho point at which he now left off. It is needless for us to say that his speech of Saturday was marked by great ability. We doubt, indeed, w hether Mr. Lamar ever mad an effort more entirely worthy of his acknowledged powers as a debater, and his established reputation as a rising statesman. Many a man, who listened to his stirring eloquence on that oc casion, expressed his regret that the speaker, by accepting a Professorship iu the Univer sity, had rendered it impossible for his con stituents to retain him as their Representa tive in future Congresses. It is, of course, impossible for us, in a mcro sketch, to do anything like justice to a speech which was so logically compacted as that of Mr. Lamar. It should bo presented to the reader n to thoso who heard it ns a whole; and we trust that it in:iy yet bo so given to tho public. AVe did not hoar the exordium of Mr. La nmr. When we entered tho Court-room, he was iclating a conversation which he held with an able Opposition member of Congress, who was n delate to the Convention that nominated Dell and Everett, and who was boasting of the "platform" adapted by his party "The Union, tho Constitution, and the Enforcement of the Laws." Mr. Lntnar asked him whether ho considered "the Union" so w eak us to be in need of tho as sistance of the Hell tnoii for its preservation . "No !" was the prompt reply : "the Union is fief weal:, but, by G d, the Dell men are, nnd they need it assistance," Mr. I be lieved that this was true, and tliiit the real danger was, that tho Union would prove to be too strong for our rights mid our liberties. The (hargc is made by tho Black Repub licans of the North that the South is to.blume fur all the present agitation and excitement, nnd that charge is echoed from the stump by Southern gentlemen of unexceptionable morals, high character, and established repu tation. Mr. L. did not doubt that all who heard him were true men, who would act upon the maxim "Our country, right or wrong" in any contest with a hostile sec tion; and he besought them to bear with him while ho attempted to prove that this grave charge was not well founded, and that it should no lunger bo urged against the South, or the Democratic party, by Southern men, nt least. He then went forward to de monstrate, iu the clearest manner, that the attitude nnd policy of the North, from the formation of the government tip to the present day, has been hostile to ami aggressive upon the South, while the uttitudo and policy of the South, on the other hand, lias uniformly been conciliatory, self-saeriii.'ing, and dis posed to compromise. A distinguished Opposition elector nskoj here, the other thy, with nn apparently tri--umphaut air "What has the North done, since 1 85(1, of which we have a right to complain V Mr. Lamar was willing', he said, to look no further back than 1850 for causes of complaint. One of the points of the "ad justment" of 1850 was, the Fugitive Slave Law. That law conferred upon the South no new right: it was a simple recognition of a right previously conferred by the Constitu tion the enforcement of a constitutional guarantee, iu favor of the South, which led to the adoption of the Constitution the con sideration, without which that instrument would never have been agreed to by the j Soutn. Upon the statute-books of every one of the uou-slavcholdiug States, with a few rare exceptions, where similar wrongs had been prevented by a Democratic llouse or Seuate, or the veto of a Democratic Gover nor, there were laws which were expressly designed to defeat the execution of the Fugi tive Slave Law, and render its practical ope ration a nullity. The nature of these laws, with their peculiar provisions iu different States, were here stated by the speaker with great iniuufx'ness of detail. Besides, there were, iu all the free Stales, bands of men openly associated together for the avowed purpose of stealing slaves from the South, and transporting them beyond the reach of their owners, upon the "underground rail road ;" these men raise large sums of money by the voluntary contributions of the Northern people, and annually deprive, the South of property whose value may Lo computed at hundred of thousands of dollars; and yet, ! there is not a single Northern State w hose Legislature has enacted any provision of law that looks to the suppression of these out rages. Mr. Webster had said, that upon the refusal of the North to give up fugitive slaves, the South would bstio loa-rcr bound to observe the Constitution, upon the ground that a compact, broken on ouo side, was no more obligatory upon the other, Yet, the South has never yet retaliated, as she might have done, pet ween foreign nations, auch open disregard of treaty stipulations would be a legitimate causa of war. Still, in every Southern legislature, whenever any propo sition has been Lronght forward to make re prisals upon the North, it has been Toted down, upon the so!? objection that it wa in conflict with the tpiril of the Copsliluiion, , W t,.r. baMv! ,.ltl. . complainins of the conduct of mrioua 1 c , t c. . , , South.- StaU in niakinsr pmvhsse of ' . . , . , , . - rm ; but when we ronider tliat these pur- crt h'.twak-until af'crj-hajn, ,. in his, raid upon Virginia bad . attempted to carry out a programme act forth in a book which had received the written indorsement of sixty-eight members of Congress, and of multitudes of sympathiser throughout the Northern States, the speaker trusted that these precautionary measures, looking to the prevention of any similar incursions iu the future, would be ludulgently regarded by the people whose homes and hearth-stones they were intended to secure, Can we trust the North upon the question of slavery f It has beeu found that they will Dot execute that compact of the Constitution w hich provides for the extradition of fugi tive islatvs, because, they say, that provision of the Constitution is void, as being in con flict w ith a "higher law." If this be so, then there is no otlitr compact in tho Constitu tion, having refereuco to slavery, w hich wo can expect them to observe. Tbey will re pudiate every engagement on that subject ; for, according to their own avowed princi ples, there is no oath that can bind their con sciences. They have declared their purpose to destroy slavery, and they mean what they say. Indeed, they areadly regard the battle as fought, and their victory as achieve J. Se nator Wilsou complacently remarks that "ths South is now but a mere dependency of the North ;" and Mr. Seward observes, that "the only question the South now has to de cide for herself, is this whether she shall suffer slavery to bo destroyed quietly, or by the bloody hand of force, Mr. Lamar read tho report of a colloquy wlucli took place, mat winter, iu congress, between himself and Mr. Stokes, of Tennessee one of those intensely conservative South ern gentlemen, who arc fond of declaring that ficy intend to exact nothing unjust or uncon stitutional at tho hands of tho North. Mr. Stokes made this declaration upon tho floor . . Ilf( of tho lions;; but, when pressed 7 f- Lamar to specify the instance, in which even those men who were characterized as South ern "extremists" had demanded of tho North might that, iu itself, was cither unjust or un constitutional, Mr. Stokes, after repeated ut tcmpts ut evasion, was compelled to answer that he knew of no such instances. Southern Opposition men sometimes as cribe the present agitation to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. Mr." Lamar here proceeded to deliver a masterly exposition of the facts connected vt 1th that Compromise, and of the circumstances, under which it was repealed in 1854; and then he argued to show that it was not that repeal which caused the present agitation, but that tho agitation had its source and origin iu the settled belief of .. . i .1 X jl ...I.. .1... tiw. crrrvir m.isa ot inn .Minnirn Detune, uiai .... b. - - -ii slavery was a great moral wrmig, "- against God and man, which it was their sol- cmn duty to eradicate from flic laud as speed - ily as possible. Tha anti-slavery sentiment had taken complete, possesion of tho minds of a thoughtful and strong-willed people, and wo lind already witnessed something of its terrible energy in those disruptions of church es and of parties, which it had rent into frag ments whenever they presented themselves in its path.

Let the North once obtain the necessary pow er, and she will employ it as England did, nor need tho South attempt to delude her self with the expectation that her "soil, and climatic influences,'' will stay the progress of abolition for a moment after it becomes strong cuoitgli to enter upon the consummation ofi its purposes. ; Wc were told, the other day, that Mr. Bell's course of policy, in reference to the reception of abolition petitions by Congress, had been follow ed by the happiest results by peace and harmo ny. Of course, the anti-slavery men made no clamor npon that suhject, and why ? Because all they had demanded, on that point, was con ceded to them, and they were left free to go on to other works of aggression upon slavery. Could any man say that concession to any of the demands of abolitionism had ever been followed by an abatement of its spirit, or by the manifes tation of a purpose to stay its steps at the point then occupied ? Without entering into partic- ! ulars, the speaker would say that Mr. Bell's pol icy was infected w ith the error of supposing that fanaticism could be conciliated by yielding to a portion of its demands. He had yielded the point of receiving abolition petitions, he was wil ling to have yielded the point of abolishing slave ry in the District of Columbia, and he seems wil ling to continue to yield, so long as fresh demands are multiplied. Fanaticism, however, is not thus to "be dealt with. As well might you think tj stay the blood-hound in bis hot pursuit, by permitting him to take a small taste of your blood. ; Mr. L. quoted from ITenry Winter Davis, to show that the Litter gentleman believed the ten dency of things was towards emancipation or disunion. Do Southern men know all that is implied in that word emancipation t Here the speaker drew a striking picture of the state of things that wonld exist here, if the servile race were liberated. Men now say "they want peace! they want repose 1" They have only to sub mit to all that the North proposes to do, and they will late peace they will hare repose ; but it may be that the coward, w ho trembles in vkw of a distant prospect of disunion, will find. ,h V have develop. ed Uicmselves, that he Bed from a trivial to a , . - , , r t-t ' i tn"y 'earful pcnl, from which no way of escape I - ni r.m,; r,i. ... i.: i !.-. -Mr. FDlmcn faid, in lSiS, that the South; vnt Id not submit to the election of a President by a Northern sectional party. A Southern gentleman toll you, here, the other day, that rou aught to submit to it Abolition emissa ries heard that speech, and, doubtless, they hare written to theb? fellow-laborers at the North that Mr. Fillmore was mistaken; that the Southern people are leas brave than he supposed them to be; that a distinguished gentleman of Mississip pi addressed a large audience of Mississippians, and counselled them to submit and that he was not drummed out of the town in which be spoke ! There is yet one way, said Mr. Lamar, in which we may save ourselves by forgetting that we are Whigs and Democrats, Douglas men and Breckinridge men, and uniting together like one man In support of our Imperilled rights. It remains to be seen whetlicr we have magnanim ity enough to do this. Last winter, at one time, it seemed that the South (night yet be united. When, during the long and angry contest for Speaker of the House of Representatives, it was announced to him that Mr. Smith, of North Carolina, a Southern opposition man, had re ceived votes enough to elect him, with ths aid of the Democracy, the Southern Democrats went over to his support and actually elected him Speaker ; but before the vote was declared, the friends of Douglas, from Pennsylvania, who had voted for Smith, treacherously changed their votes, and defeated him. Southern opposition men then declared that the Southern Democrats had displayed such magnanimity, that they would support a Democrat, If ho were put for ward McClernand, of Illinois, was accordingly put in nomination, but the Southern opposition men declared that they could not vote for him, because he was a friend of Douglas. They did not hesitate to assert, that as between sqHatter , sovereignty and tho Wiimot Proviso, they hail no choice. When the Charleston Convention met the Democratic party was found, for the first time, to be divided by a geographical line. Tho Northern wing of the party insisted upon the dogma of squatter sovereignty. The South rejected it.

Wo be lieved, said Mr. Lamar, that the conservative Op position men of tho South would be with us in our efl'ort to repudiate a principle against which they had so strenuously prot"sted; but we ob serve, on every hand, signs, scarcely to be mista ken, of a general understanding that tho friends of Douglas and of Bell, throughout the country, have formed a close and intiniato alliance. The speaker here presented an elaborate explanation of squatter sovereignty, and of its inevitable ten dency to accomplish tho ends aimed nt by the Black Republicans; but, being greatly exhaust ed, he here concluded with nn eloquent nppcal to the people to cast off the thraldom of their 1 ii - i . . .. i .. t. lenders, aim rany, ukc uroiners, 10 mo oeience ( 0r their own homes and Ilresides.
