! A correspondence has come to light through tne
jcolumn, of the ^Savannah
Gen. Cass and Mr. R. J. Moses, of Florida, a del
egate to the Baltimore Convention. This corres
pondence occurred previous to the meeting of that
Convention. Mr. Moses, like any other man of
good sense, knew that the Nicholson letter was an
artfnl production—that while by that means Gtn.
Cass endeavored lo clear himself of the Wilmot
proviso principles that he had expressed, he had at
the same time so ingeniously worded the letter, that
in the event of his election, and his consequent ap
proval of Abolition topics and laws, he could repel
any charge of deception from the South, by taking
up that very letter and proving from it (as truthful
ly as a miuister could from the bible that a God ex
ists) that his opinions upon slavery, his hatred to it,
were there manifestly expressed. Tfthere is a loathe
some creature on this earth, and one who deserves
the desecration of all good men, it is that man who
perverts the mighty intellect which God has enrich
ed him, by employing it in the furtherance of base
and deceptious purposes: such a man, beyond all
contradiction, is Lewis Cass. Reflect, Loiiisiani.
ans, and do not bend at the shrine of his intellectual
powers, and be the dupes of his chicanery !
If Gen. Cass had not attempted by the Nichol
son letter (in his peculiar tray) to place himself in
a favorable attitude before the South on the ques
tion Slavery, then he might with a great deal of
propriety, in his position as a candidate for the Pre
sidential nomination, decline to answer any in
terrogatories upon that subject; but after he had
expressed himself in writing upon this matter, and
a Southener, a delegate, addresses him a letter, re
questing his explicit meaning of certain ambiguous
sentences—sentences that were rather dark for
Southern eyes—he should, like an honest man and
a gentlemen, havegivena plain, direct and positive
answer. He was thus addessed bv Mr. Moses; and
his reply—such a reply!—in which he encloses, as
sufficient explanation, the very letteu about which
in some passage«* iMr. M. wished to be more en
lightened—is a direct insult to that gentleman and
to the whole South!
Here is the correspondence :
Coleman's Hotel, }
Washington , May 19, 1848. j
Hon. Lewis Cass:
Dear Sir —As your name will, in all probability,
be prominently before tlie Baltimore Convention,
tobe holden on Monda)' next, for the purpose of
nominating a candidate for President of the United
States, and as I shall have to cast the vote of the
State of Florida, in conjunction with my col
leagues, should they arrive, (or alone, in any other
contingency.) it is desirable that the Delegation'
should be informed of your views upon the right of
slave-holders to migrate to new territory with their
slaves, that we may know how far they accord with
the instructions under which we are directed to
act. F will, therefore, respectfully inquire—
1st. Whether you still adhere to the positions
taken in your letter to A. O. P. Nicholson, Esq., of
December last?
2d. If so, am I correct in construeing it îo mean
that, yon consider lhat the inhabitants of a territory,
before they form a State Governrment. have a right
to establish or prohibit slavery, as they may deem
most consistent with their local policy ?
3d. And lhat, the policy so expressed is the
paramount law during the territorial probation,
changeable only by the people of the territory upon
the formation of a State Government, or under
such Legislative sanction as they may direct?
There is another matter, but 6lightlv alluded to in
your Nicholson letter, !o which I will also direct
Do yon consider that the slave-holders would
have the undeniable right to migrate, with their
slaves, to any Mexican territory that may be annex
ed to the United States—or would you tegaid it a
doubtful matter, in consequence of the institntion
of slavery not having been recognized in said
territory by the Mexican authorities immediately
preceding the acquisition ofsuch territory, (suppos
ing it should be acquired?)
Your reply will enable the delegation to deter
mine whether, under certain circumstances, they
can, consistently with their instructions, cast the vote
of Florida in your behalf as a candidate for the Pre
sidency. Yours, respectfully,
Delegate from the State at large.
U. S. Hotei ., May 31, 1848.
Dear Sir: I did not receive your esteemed favor
until yesterday, and I have been so much occupied
that I could not answer it before.
I had supposed that my sentiments upon the sub
ject to which you refer were fully undeistood by
my Southern friends; but as yon seem to desire in
formation, / enclose you my Nicholson letter, which
CONTAINS ALL I HAVE to say upon the subject.
Respectfully, yours.
To R. J. Moses , Esq,
We Cannot Comply .—We have received from
Mr. J. D. B. De Bow, a circular respecting State
statistics, making about two columns in our paper,
which he, as superintendent of the Bereau of Sta
tistics of this State, requests us to publish; besides
to send him a paper containing whatever statistical
information we might collect through the means of
such publication ; and concludes by saying that it
must be done gratuitous, as the State has made no
appropriation for such printing.
Now, with all due respect, we would inform
Mr. De Bow, that we never made any pretensions
as a phylanthropist—that we can see no personal
benefit accruing for such labor on our part—and if
the State cannot afford to pay the printer for such
woik, then the wölk, as far as we are concerned,
must go undone. We toiled for many years, to
acquire a knowledge of r our business, and since
that time have worked at it in every capacity, and
the result has been, that we are just about as poor
now as when we first commenced, in consequence
of working for every body but ourself. It is now
time to atop. And the State, through its agent Mr.
De Bow, must excuse our uncharitable feeling, for
we have considerably less funds on hand than its
treasury, and have considerably better use for our
hands, than to allow them to toil a day gratuitously
for it* interests.
The Opinions of a Democrat,
[Correspondence of the Southern Sentinel.) >
Bayou Grosse Tete . Sept. 20. :
Mr. Editor: I have been kindly permitted to co
py the following extract of a letter written by a gen
tleman residing in Washington city to a friend of
his upon this Bavou. The gentlemen are both De
mocrats, and the letter was not written with the ex
pectation that it would meet the public eye. I am
not permitted to give the name; but you may rest
assured that a knowledge of the parties warrants me
in saying that implicit confidence maybe placed in
the honor and veracity of the writer. He has been
for several yeais residing in Washington, where Iiis
standing and acquaintance with the leading men ol
ail political parties, has given him an opportunity of
obtaining coriect information with regard to the
principles and opinions of those men, and of cor
rectly judging in whose hands the
South can most
safely trust her interests in the present crisis of po
litical affairs. Yonrs, &c.,
"Washington , September, 1847.
* * * What are your politics as regards the
Presidency ? My opinion is. decidedly, that the. South
ought to rote to a man for General Taylor. I have
seen enough here to convince me that the South
has nothing to expect at the North from either Dem
ocratic p;;it_v. The politicians of every party at the
North are united against us on the slave question.
I state it without hesitation, not as nil opinion but
as a fact, that Cass is as thoroughly against ns upon
that subject, both in principle and feeling, as the
most rabid abolitionist or whig in any of the free
States. I am astonished that in South Carolina,
especially, there should be fonnd a single public
man, with any pretensions to intelligence, who
could think of going forhiin. The slave question with
ns is, and ought to be. paramount to all others, and
in the recent language of Mr. Calhoun, at Charles
ton, we ought to 'rememberthat the Southern man
l «'ho is farthest from ns in general politics, is closer
to us lipon thai subject, than the Northern man. be
he whig or democrat.' Cass has been a Wilmot
proviso man—he has been opposed to it. Every
word Mr. Miller of the Senate, from New Jersey,
said ah »tit him on that subject, I know tobe true.—
And now, to gain Southern votes, lie would make
us believe he would veto it should Congress adopt
it, in organizing California and New Mexico. In
(net, he is any thing and every thing, to every sec
tion of the country, to gain his election. I fear he
will be elected, (not on account of his general poli
tics, for generally we agree.) and just so sure as he
is the South will be sacrificed. A Norlhern man I
cannot trust upon that subject, and especially Cass,
for he has no fixed constitutional principles, and in
him I have no confidence, when his interest is con
cerned. He has an utter contempt for Constitu
tional restraints, when they oppose any of his che
rished projects. Nor am I wholly satisfied wilh
General Taylor, as a candidate to vote for : but if
upon the slavery question I am destined to be sac
rificed by a man of my choice (though he be one
of two evils,) in the name of God, let it be by one
of the same kit with myself. If the South is des
tined to be ostracised from all the benefits of the
Union, let me have the honor of having it done by
one of her own sons, and save her the disgrace of
blindly calling in the aid of a Northern man for the
consummation of the deed."
Letter from Mr. Fillmore.
In the Buena Vista, published at Jackson. Miss.,
we find the following letter from Millard Fillmore.
It requires no comment:
Dear Sir —I have the honor to acknowledge the
receipt of your note of the 9ih inst.. enclosing a
piinted copy of the resolutions adopted by the
Rough and Ready Club of Raymond on the 5th inst,
and desiring to know wether the political senti
ments contained in those resolutions are in accord
ance with my views. ;
The tenth and eleventh only, speak of my views
and though I cannot feel justified in appropriating
to myselfall the flattering compliments contained in
those resolutions, yet I am happy to say lhat they

Please to make my acknowledgments to the mem
bers of your Club, and believe ine, respectfully,
John B. Peyton , Esq., President.
The following are the resolutions referred to:
10. Resolved. That we recognise in Millard Fill
more, the Whig candidate for the Vice Presidency,
a genuine republican , a pure patriot, a man of exalt
ed intellect and higlk acquirements—one who has
served the republic long and faithfully in the civil
department of Government, whose every act mani
fests that he is a true devotee of liberty; whose
name is prominently identified with the Whig pcrty.
and whose talents and patriotism justly entitle him
to the love and admiration of his countrymen.
11. Resolted, That the charge of abolitionism,
recklessly adducedaginst Millard Fillmore, by un
scrupulous partisan opponents, for the purpose of
exciting sectional prejudices against him, has no
foundation whatever in truth; but, on the contrary,
is triumphantly disproved by the solemn declaration
of our candidate for the Vice Presidency, uttered
long since in the councils of the nation, tha,t Con
gress has no power, under the constitution, to inter
fere with the institntion of domestic slavery as it
exists in the States of this Union; and that therefore
we feel well assured that Southern institutions will
never be assailed or molested by any act of Millard

raising the frame of a sugar house, on the planta
ion of Mr. Golding, on Little Caillou, (says the
Thibodaux Minerva of the 15th inst.,) when by
some unlucky mishap, a part of the work gave
way—killing Mr. Golding and Thomas May
instantly, and severely wounding several other per
sons who were assisting at the raising.

The Barbecue at Pass Christian.—A spi
rited and interesting account, by one of the editor s
of the Picayune, is given in that paper of the grand
barbecue at Pass Christian, last Saturday. "Per
sons from a distance of thirty-five and forty miles
were on the ground; persons of different political
sentiments; of different grades and rank in soci
ety; yet all was harmony and friendship." Among
the sentiments given on the occasion, was the fol
lowing, by the ladies of Pass Christian:

of honor, giving to the world their appreciation of

The General was addressed by the Hon. John
Henderson, and the reply of the old warrior we
give on the first page of to-day's paper ; it is highly
interesting, and should be read by all; it is thus

soul and pur'e patriotism of the cood old man.

The Mob at Cincinnati .—A correspondent of
the Chronicle, alluding to the late fatal and sangui
nary riot at Cincinnati, growing out of an alleged
outrage upon a little German girl by two returned
volunteers, says:
And now, Mr. Editor, what do von think this
mob has resolved itself into ? A melancholy yet
splendid humbug! The little girl was not only
unmolested, but the poor soldiers were altogether
innocent themselves. They were indicted because
the avaricious and almost brutal father of the girl
hoped to get some money in the shape of land war
rants from them. The father himself, fearing an
arrest, has fled the city, and now the tide of public
feeling is settling against him and in favor of the
prisoners. What a world we live in and what a be
ing of contempt and iniquity is man.
