FEL NA DEMOGRAT
.Tnt OOUTr-W1IAT IS HIR DUXi'
Afterib very animated sealon of thtee
days, the Ntional Know Nothing Abolt
tionist QOuqavtion whiohast this nonathat
twe Mtsouri compromise as ap 146.104
qf plighted faith, call for its restoration
aaspdder that, if efforts to that end fail
is bopgrus, admlseion intq the Unioq
mbould be of anyo now stato tolera,
In glvoery, and formed .out of territory
which that instit titi was excluded
y the compromise. This, there Is no lo
or any doubt about it is the settled policy
of that powerful cohort of abolitionist and
Free sellers which know nothingiste has
brought into existence; a policy which
strike ats the toot of oar most sacred priv
ileges as Southerners, and which, if carried
out, will eventually randernind the foun
dation upon which our Constitution re.
poseL.
In view of this k ~obect, n whek we 'are
all pe:soually interested, we appeal solbmn
ly, and, we hope, not without necessity, to
tihe soiber sense of the peopleof the south,
to 'prepare themdelves for the politieal
struggle in which they must erelong be
oalied'upou to play their part. We are
far fromo wishing to kindle anew the torch
of sectional strife, or to array unnecessari
ly one portion of our union againit the oth
er. Our platform is the Constitution and
the Union, and if the north will stand by
and adhere to it as we are determined to
do, we will be among the first to labor
with her until fraternal harmony and frior.d
ship be restored between the various sec
tious of the country. But, until we have
tangible evidences of this wish on her part
to cultivate friendly feelings with the south
and to respect not only our acquired rights,
but those incidentally deriyvd from theFed
eral coml,act, we must stahtd on the watch
tower of defence and urge true southern
crs to tlhat protection and vigilance which
their interests so imperatively require.
One of the strongest weapons of' de
fence which nature and our institutions
have endowed man with, is EDUCATION.
It is at once the fulcrum and the lever
the basis and the spring of action. It is a
subject which has awakened the attention
of our astutest statesmen, and which has,
time and again, been presented to the con
sideration of the south, as one in which
her interests are indissolubly involved.
We do not mean that southern education is
the only measure of defence to which it bo
hooves us to resort. There are others,
which we will in due time lay before our
readers, but, among the most important, is
certainly that under consideration.
We have before us an able and well writ
ten article upon this subject, by one of the
ablest pens of the country, and we take
pleasure in recommending it to the close at
tention of southern parents. Let the pa
triotic admonitions it contains be hceneded
ore it he too late, and may its recommenda
tions be at once carried out. Let our mot
to be " It is time that the south should be
doing something for herself."
The system that has been pursued all
alonjt;by southern parents of sending their
sons to the north to complete their educa
tion, is unwise in its political aspect and
dangerous in its social bearing. It is but
one of the many modes that have been pur.
sued, of draining the resources of the south,
and of pouring into the full lap of north
ern enterprise her wealth and tihe products
of her industry. Thus impoverished by
her own folly the gratitude of these hInefi
ciaries of her bounty is manifeisted in the
unworthy taunt that southern men and
southern institutions are inadequlate to the
develo pument of the resources of the conu
try. We have not at Iresent the means of
makingi a calculation of the aunonut of this
inmmense charge upon the south, but we will
at somne future day take occasion to do so.
Some idea of the amount, may however be
formed when we remember the number of
students from Virginia who flock to the
medleal colleges of Philadelpnia alone.
It may be fairly estimated, that in this sol
itary instance, nearly $50,000 are lost to
thie state of Virginia anrnuully.
It 'roeelds no profound political economilst
to convince a southern man that thie monroy
thus y'car by year carried out of the state,
and lavishecd at thie north is as absolutely
lost to her citizens as if it was thrown into
tIe sea. ThIe unhappy condition of hle
land, wasted and desolated by alnsenteeism
is an illustration of the evil which must re
suit from such a course. Thero the propri
otors of the land reside principally in neg
land, and lavish in tire extravagances of
lrondon life the exorbitant rents wrung

dissolution of the Union,,,. while .their
sous were imnibiing the fodoral doctrines
of the Dane school in Camnbridgi, or hang.
ing upon the eloquence of an abolitionist
in Fanouil lHell.
With solemn earnestness, arising from
the importance of the interest at stakd;;we
appeal to the south to Consider well thb
subject to which we have thus briefly alls
ide. Train your sons at home, amid the
institutions which they must live, and which
they umy be sunnuoned to defend. If you
would lhave their views enlarged and cul
tivated by intercourse with other sections,
lot theul travel and learn the groat lesson
of life from their own observation on sqci
oty, rather than in the lecture room of an
abolitiouniprotessor. Above all, let it nevy
er be said again that a southOrn young
man contributes to the wealth of a maem
moth corporation, which in its choice of a
professor of law, discards as unworthy f
their conlidenlce tihe iman who would defend
the laws.of his country against tile baw
assaults of' it fanatical mob.
