We are authorized to announce R. S.

Clerk, if Lafayette County, at the general
election in November, 1851.
OT The Editor has been absent during

Resolutions of the late Nashville Con
vention. They are of tbe right sort
highly creditable to the wisdom and
firmness of the body from which they
eminated, and deserve tbe serious con
sideralion, and hearty approval of ev
ery free man and patriot in the South.
Let the people in five or six of the
Southen States, if no more will act
carry out the recommendation of the
Convention, to hold a Southern Con"
gress or Convention, at as early a d ay ,
as practicable; and our prospects will
soon begin to brighten, in the rising
glory of the South. Let us discard
all fear of evil consequences, in the
course which right, and peace, and
destiny alike uree us to pursue. A
bright and glorious future awaits us,
if we shall be true to ourselves!
express their indignation at these ceaseless
encroachments are led off from their duty
by a worldly spirit of demegogueism. The
writer speaks contemptuously of what
he is pleased to call "the continual harp
ing" upon "southern rights." Such are
the "sentiments." And now for the pint.
A number of southern men of both parties

in New Eng'andf In what light are the

garded by their brethren of iho North?
Why with hardly the common.decencies of
society, not to say kindnesses of brother

For the Organizer.
Had the "North Carolina Preacher"
kept himself out oftho newspaper.", the
'SovTiiKxif Treacher" would have done
the like. IId the Star withheld its
endorsement from the one it would never
have heard of the other. We supposed
that the Star would have been content to
leave the two anonymous writers to the
jugdment of (he public, without the aid of
its twinkling light but we were mistaken.
It takes up the cudgles In defence of the
North Carolinian, and reads us a lecture
for not according with him. 1 his is quite
natural. The farther off the friend, the
better the Star likes him; the more remote
tbe government, the more devoted the
Star1 allcgeance to it. At least this is
true, if words and actions are any signs of
the aff ctions. W hat word has it ever
spoken in favor of the South; what reproof
has it ever uttered to the South, worst
enemies at the North? We regret that
the Editor of the Asteroid has forced him
self into our controversy, 1st because wj
really and truly like lb- - - n.,d 2(i
CSrlt is reported that tbe submis
sionists have a majority in the Geor
gia Convention.
SPEECH of Hon. Lang Jon Cheves in the
Nashville Convention.
We have read, with inexpressible delight,
this masterly and incomparable production,
s . a is ' m J . LU I I
"n,"j B"" " u ao not see what is to be gain
Herman and patriot nowj.ving in Pj by a victory over him. That we really
South. . I r(ljeem h.'m, is proved by the fact that we
'take his paper and actually read it the
most tormenting sheet, that ever atllicted
a man of southern predilections, home-
born attachments, manly spirit ami devo-
lion to the fundamental principles of his
government.
, We vori'y believe that if a band of in
furiated abolitionists should march into the
capilol. gag every southern Congressmen,
usurp all the oflir.es of the country, ex
clude the South from every foot ol the
common domain, forbid her to deal jn
slavery, or to remove them from State to
. Had we the power to do it, and i
it were desirable on the part of that great
and good old manLa ngdn Cheves we
would instantly metamorphose him into a
young man of twenty.five year, and give
him a lease on hi life of a thousand years.
We regret that it is impossible for us to
publish the speech entire, and to give parts
of it would mar it just proportion, and not
satisfy the reader.
The Star of the Union," Our
neighbor has droped bis former name,
ll'hig Star" and adopted the above.
He says under that title he is willing
to sink or swim, as the people of La
fayette may determine. We lliink
he would do well to prepare himself
with a life-boat; there are breakers
ahead!
State, or to recapture them when runaway
and then tax her unmercifully to pay the great political parties of the day, and stab
not fail to see, namely, that the people of
the South were kept in ignorance by the
party presses in the country of the mis
chiefs plotting against them at the North,
resolved to establish a press that should
look to southern interests alone, and which
should be free from the old party trammels.
Accordingly they got up the "Southern
Press" that is to say, they offered such
encouragements to the establishment of
such a press, that the Editors of that Jour
nal were led to establish it. Whatever may
be said against that Paper, every candid
man must confess, that it has kept the
South faithfully warned ot the dangers
which threaten her from all parties of the
North. And this is more than any other
Press in Washington city now does, or has
ever done. It is conducted with dignity
and talent. Its Editors believe that there
is no hope for the South, nor indeed for the
Union, but in prompt efficient, united re
sistance and that at all hazards, to the reck
less, desperate spirit of fanaticism which
is raging at tbe North against the institu
tions of the South. So think thousands
of as pure patriots as ever graced this or
any other land. This is the Press which
tbe "North Cnrolina preacher" singled out
from all others, as the object of his marked
contempt; and peradventure his clerical
character, might not diffuse bis ' spirit"
abroad among southern christians, he ap
peals to them to know wheiher they "tho
disciples of the crucified'1 are tobejftgf-fc;
to by a Jew-' a despise,.- ;fih7Nazarine."
That G,en!.;.'j is a" co-editor of that Paper
me North Carolinian forgot to inform his
fellow-christians. The particular sins of
that Paper, he forgot to enumerate. That
the same paper, in its advocasy of Southern
Rights has not gone a nails breadth be
yond the resolutions of almost every Leg
islature of tho Southern States, the "North
Carolina preacher" probably did not know
or knowing, chose to lash over the
Jew's shoulders. Here is his "spirit11
wh ch commends itself so potently to the
Star. We confess tnat we like neither the
"sentiments" nor the "spirit." We regard
them both, as decidedly partisan and un
charitable. Who can read the articles.
without seeing precisely where the author
stands? Who can read it. without per-
a
ceiving that under the guise of pastoral
counsel, .he was commending one of the
and chri-tian forbearance, and In all the
dignity and self-respect with which they
invest him. And if his North Carolinian
Oracle is of the same "spirit," then as Paul
did to Peter, when he found him trimming
between two branches of the primitive
church, we are ready to withstand him to
his face, because he is to be blamed.
The Star correctly interprets our com
mission, and when we preach, we endeavor
io follow it to the letter: though we verily
believe that if ever there was a time w hen
a minister of the gospel would be justified
in preaching resistance to northern interfer
ence with southern institutions, this is that
time); when the northern pulpits of every
name, are sending forth anathemas
against the South, and justifying a most J
glaring infraction of the Const. tution, by
infuriated mobs of negroes and fanatics.
To preach resistance to such wretches,
would be to preach obedience to law and
the arrei-t of anarchy. To preach the obli
gations of truth upon '.hone numerous as
semblies, legislative and popular, who
huve vowed in the face of heaven and the
world that they would not submit to further
aggressions from these desperadoes, we
are not sure, but that such preaching would
at this lime be allowable; but in our
sacred office we are no; disposed to treud
upon doubtful ground and therefore we
never touch them iu-J,1;? puijnf.
It sSfris that a statement which we
of your life, your liberty and your property
without lifting a finger to oppose them?
and cannot you distinguish between calling
upon the southern people at every hazard
to defend the constitution, and calling upon
them to revolt against a plain equitable
rifhtious law? "Obedience to the laws of
the country!' Yes that is just what we
want ; and we would have i', at the peril
otlife, or we would cut our connection with
those who disregard it, and cannot be
coerced to respect the laws of the country.
You cn the contrary are so ultra pacific
that your rights are of no consequence to
you if you must needs defend them laws
are of no value to you, if they cannot bo
sustained without force and constitutions
are nothing, if they must be supported at the
peril of the Union! If this be your reli
gion ; why in the narno of concienco cher
ish it ; but -it does not happen to be the
religion of

PLANK ROAD
A petition signed by a large num
ber of respectable citizens of oar coan
ty was mailed a few days since to our
members of the Legislature asking
a charter to build a Plank Road from
Oxford to the Mississippi River. We
rrgrct that this petition was not got
op sooner, as the Legislature ad
joarited before it reached the Capitol.
Some of the petitioners having trav
eled over, and thoroughly examined
the country through which the Road
is proposed to be built, they thus des
cribed jt in their petition:
"The Road to be located on the
best ground, lo cross Tallahatchie

to become history is just asceitain as
any thing that lies in the future. To be
sure, it will all take place under the forms
of law but it will only be the more dss
picable and fatal on that account And yet
this, and its kindred Presses throughout the
land, are not only unmoved by tbe dan
gers which surround us, the disgrace
which has befallen us, and the ruin which
threatens us, but they fasten themselves
like bodies of death upon all w ho cherish
the pride of freemen, and the spVit of their
noble sires, and there hang weakening
by their dead-weight and suffocating by
their exhalations to such a degree, that
already there is scarc'y a ray of hope, that
the South will ever command the strength
aerdful to escape the destiny which Is full
in view before her. Her honor is rone.
