This wan welt enough until iu compliance with the prevailiDir fashion", he attempted to raise mustache," when ouo tide grow hair see no abatement in the volume of fonati cism, and no ebb in its current. Moral victories wo ha,ve, achieved, , but jthey , have not save 1 us from the assaults of fanaticism, and will not save us from them. The great industrial interests of tbe world ; the uo changeable laws of humanity, and physical geography, have compelled both Eneland aud l'Vuuoe to acknowledge difference of races) to subordinate the uucivilized to the civilized j to aggregate labor in the produc tion of tropical staples, ; and to derive that labor from those fitted by nature for its ex ercise. But there has tact) uo revolution, either progressive or incipteut, in the senti ments of the people of either country upon tho subject of slavery us it exists in the Soutlieru States, anil their L'overnnienta have been the less ' active.' . in propagating fauati cism.' Commercial jealousy and rival do minion will always keep Great Britain from any policy which will induce prosperity, to the States of the Union. Ilor statesmeu may bo convinced of the folly of Abolition ism; her soholars may know that slavery always existed ; and her philosophers may understand and concede that it is a normal relation betweeu the white and black races but her government will eontiue to prop agate fuuaticism, and her counsels to stir up anti slavery hate. ' Iu the field of the world's debate we may win rictories, but these tri umphs will not stay back the progress of lauutieism. The laws of human action are beyond the reach of such argumentation as these victories flow from.' Nor have we gathered from them any substantial revenue of gain in the Southern States. I see no parting of the cloud, and no pause in the muster of tho elements there. When I first eutered Congress, there was but an insiguifi cant number of Abolitiouists in the House, and but two, I believe, iu the Senate. Since then, I have seen them Swell in numbers till tbey.Jieized tho powers of tho House, and iu tho Senate there are now about tweniy three. In eighteen ' yeurs their popular voto bus increased from forty to fourteen hundred thousaud. Like mildew aud blast like pestilence and famine Abolitiouism has swept through the free States, aud girdled them round with a belt of deadly Influences. IS there be any power to stuy .the ravuiKs ot tins moral sirocco, it baa not been exert ed. Pulpit and press, lecture hall and lyce um, State machinery and partyorgauization, have sunk beueath its pesiiient and deadly brcatu. In my owu Congressional career, I have soeti the Whig party die ; its lesions dissolve, its glories melt away ; and us proud Duuuer, illustrated with splendid achieve ments, and bright with heroic memories, folded over the grave of its jjreat leader : and the Black Republican party an amalgam of isni, a base conglomerate of opposiug elements tied together by fanaticism, step into tue DelU, instituted by hatred to the South, nd greedy of sectional power, aud just fail to seize the sceptre ol'suu icss. Nor is it weaker Dow, than when it so insolently gnsped at the control of the government. Tho most, sanguine anticipate a desperate coutliot with it iu the next Presidential election, aud its success would not violently contradict 5 the . indications, of the times. No less hostile, too, are the designs of this party to the South. It has formally announced its intention to abolitionize every department of the government, and use them to the overthrow of slavery., .The Supreme Court even is to be remodeled, that it min istrations may subserve the cause of Abol tionism. Where, then, are the promising signs ot .a "returning sense 01 justice on the part of the North I , Whero is the u sil ver lining", in the cloud ? : Abolitionism is a moral disease for which I can see do speedy cure. have seen it stated tlutt all the Northern Demoeratie nominees for Congress are pleda- erf to disregard the provision tn the Confer' ence Bill requiring. Uie ratio of population for a , member to Congress before Kanms should. be admitted . into the Union, Tins provision, just in itself, necessary to fair dealing between the members of tlie .confederal cy, was incorporated in tlis bill aith more than ordinary legislative solemnity. It was an agreement entered into under cireumstan ees vihkh invested it with the sanctities of a compact. -To it faith teas plighted. It can ' not be broken, by the, Nortliern oarty to it without perfidy. If it be true that the Nor thertt' Democratic nominees 'art pledged to violate it then it shout Xo. tny mind thit Northern fanaticism it increasing and that resistance to it it giving wayt - If the North breaks faith upon thit point, the ties between the two wingtoftltt party will be weakened, if not dissolved.

V ' ' "'. . If the heavens, then,, are overcast with olouds, what is our policy ? to my judg ment, our policy is blear and obvious. We should Support the Administration and co operate with tlie Democratic party,' as ap proximating nearer, to us than any other. . IM ; I. -.1. - ! ' 1 V llli,'t ' 51 .!.;' " ''until such cihbporatiou involves the sacrifice. Since the beginning of the last , session of congress its geueiul policy has received my earnest support, I may have objected to isolated acts, but no oue can be expected to approve all tbe acts of any .Administration. Administrations and parties must be judged by the general results of their policy , and principles, and not by exceptional acts. Mr. Buchanan's Administration has been made niemorublo by a aeries of brilliant successes. He has done ull he could do, siuoe the opening of Cougress, to maintaiu the rights and expec ations of the South. Eveu if the party of the North waver, I believe Mr. Buchanan will stand firm. ' I believe, there fore, that bis Administration, in the future, will be such as we cau safely and cordially support. Good policy also requires that we should co-operate with tbe Democratic party. In the progress of fanaticism, its Northern hosts have melted uwny until they are now but a minority in most of the free States. As the Northern wing of the party decliued, the Southern wiur, however Btrensthened. This declension of tho one, and increase of the other, have continued, until the party has lost control cf nearly every free State, aud has obtained control of every Southern State hut one,. ; The slavery agitation has weakened the . (party . at the Nortb, aud strengthened it'at the South. In this pro cess, tbe whole machinery of the party has falkn into the hands of, the South,, except that which is called National Conveu thins. Issues have thus been made which have tried tbe party and driven from it the timid and wavering. Its policy, too, has come very much uuder the control of tbe South. That a desire to conciliate Northern opinion, aud thereby, through party strength, keep pos session of the guvernmeut, has too often aaJ improperly buuu manifested by Southern uieu, is tiue; but it is equally true that the policy of the party, for tho last few years, has Been uiaiuly Southern. This policy it has often been unable to eany out, because of defections in its Northern rauks ; but it has still cluug to its policy, and the deser ters have remained iu tho camp of the ene my. 1, The South has the general control of the. party, and if. its issues and policy be improper or dangerous, she has most of the blame to bear,. it is iu view of this ascen daucy of tlio South iu the counsels of the party, that I think tue party purer than ii has been, aud that good policy requires our cooperation with it. 1 . .f But, while I would advise the State to oo operate with the Democratic party, I would strougly couuscl against being merged in it, I would not create auy artificial ties to bind her to the party a moment looker than sound policy dictates ; , nor . would I weave around her auy moral restraints, springing from ultimate association, to keep hr from independent action, whenever such may be proper. , While, thou. I would not tie the state to the Democratic party wouiu oounsoi uer to act witu it. 1 do not very clearly see what other policy lies before us. , The slavery question has become para mount, in fact exclusive, and upon it alone parties are uow founded. The Black Re publican aud tbe Democratic parties aro now contesting the field, aud the battle is be tweeu tliemj for, really, at tho present mo ment, no other organized party uppcars iu tile fight. It is true thut there are differen ces 111 tlio ranks or each party, but these differeuces are now expressed in organized f i f l U . .1 1 1 I . lurws. uur oouineru iiiguta rrieuiis are now acting with the Democratic party, and oonn a separate ana opposing organization. iiesiues, wuat eise cau we dor . (Jan we retire from the field, like Achilles to his tent, and see the fight raging around ' us witnoui saaiiug in its iortuues t (Jan we organize a separate "and independent party at this moment 1 Upon what issue ? ' What recent development is there upon which we can rally and concentrate a new party! 1 here is no capable aud direct issuo upon which we can now proceed. If it ' be true that tho Black Republican and Democratic are the only two organized parties in the field, and we must oppose the Black Repub lican party; and there, is no issue upon which we can organize a new party ; then what is left to us but to co-operate with the Democracy Thus I advise co-operation with the Deniocratio party. . . , I said, that there were differences in tbe ranks of the party. , I think there is a dif ference between National and States Rights Democracy ;, but I do not think that that difference consists., in. tho, one looking to national parties to save ,ua, and the other not, This is confounding a special and minor effect, with' au .active : aud general cause. The difference consists in their sev eral constructions of the powers of the gov - j eminent and interpretations of the constitu tion.' Tho true distinctiou is between con solidation and confederation. These variant constructions of the powers of the govern ment Were originally developed upon the questions of Tariff, Bank, and Internal Im provement. These questions have . given way under the inroads of fanaticism; add upon the issues now before us, no division of opinion exists at the South upon the powers of the government. If new questions of I economy or finance arise, tbe old differences will again be developed 5 but at present they are allayed.! .i 1 : ,-..: y. a .'!i ; 'lm -!.' '; dren. The skies may seem serene, and the waters appear tranquil, but the elements of mischief are mustering in the one, and rooks are hidden beneath the other. If the Dem ocratic party continues to hold the govern tnent, and our rights are protweted, we may remain at peace, but if the Black Republi cans succeed; the Union must perish. Tt matters not who its leader is, or what its platform of principles msy be, its asceudancy, if submitted to, must be the subjugation of the South. The natural appetency of every dominant party, especially if it is sectional, is to oppression ; and when this is sti inula ted by fanaticism, ruin is the sure result. I would sooner seo the South ravaged by mil dew and blast, pestilence and famine, than see her proud head bowed to Black Rcpuhli -can rule.. If ever she once submits to Abo lition ascendancy, sho must fade away into ruin, or her'courage upon the field most win back what her submission bus forfeited. If she once yields, her history is written in tbe annals cf Mexico. Stained in blood, thrun ken in spirit, and restless between anarchy and despotism, stauds thut beautiful laud, " uukiugaomed aud a widow," iuvokiug some spell of conquest aud renovation. Will the South court such a fate ? No ! : With her immense resources and her teeming cu ergy, hers is a splendid destiny. It uuy require her to establish a new .confederacy, but she is equal to the task. ' At least, it forbids her submission to Black Republican rule. Never, with my counsel, will febe submit to this. And if she does, never, with my consent, will South Carolina submit. She was the John the Baptist of the Revo lution, and if her honor requires it, she mustagaiu be the fore-runner in defeucu of our common liberty aud civilizatio n. A moment more, gentlemen, and I have done. -1 believe the South is more united now than at any former period of her history. I believe, too that events are eoming on that will press her still more closely together, and that it is madness now to divide and dustract, Hq incurs a fearful, responsibility who- uu necessarily throws into her midat a disturb ing element. The South will soon be com pelled to fight her fiercest and greatest battle; in all probability it will be her last, battle in the Union. Let there be no dissension in bor camp, and no cjuaxrcling among her eliil- From the Washington Union. RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF SOUTHERN CIT IZENS IN TUE TERRITORIES. 'We have met with paragraphs for some time that express our views more clearly, or that meet the straggling objections which berjin to get abroad at the Sou'h against 1 he Nebraska-Kansas bill more fully than those we copy below. ' The complaints which have been made against the clause of the bill known as the Badger amendment, which provides that nothing in the bill shall be bj construed as to revive any laws in force prior to 1820 in the territories north of 36 de. 30 ruin., "pro tectiug, establishing, prohibiting, or exclu ding slavery" complaints which are based upon tlie objection that 1 he old Spanish laws favorable to slavery there ate not revived by the clause repealing the Missouri Prohibition, which hint in effect abolished them do not seem to us to be veiy, well founded: or. if well founded, do not seem to us to have much force. The olJ Spauish laws, whatever they were, were not ''repealed," in terms, by th Missouri Prohibition, but were only repealed in effect while that Prohibition was supposed to be valid. Wbeu it fell uuder the ured Scott decision the old Spanish laws, so far as the Prohibition bad affected them, resumed all the vitality they ever had ;' for while tbe N ebra.ka-Kansas bill did not profess tc revive thera or to "legislate slavery into the Tern tories," neither did it purport to prevent theii revival, or to ,; legislate slavery out of the Territories." That bill neither did the one thing nor the other, but left the question as to the revival or non-revival of those old laws entirely unaffected by any thing in i'seif con tained ; and thus, inasmuch as the Missouri Prohibition has been decided bv the Supreme tourt to nave beeu from the first unconsti tutional, null and void, it never operated and never could have operated o repeal those laws. If, therefore, those laws have nevr been repealed in any other manner, they are certainly not repealed by the uneonstitution al, null and void Missouri Prohibition ; and, as nothing in the Nebraska-Kxnsas bill is to be construed as leviving, or preventing the revival of the old Spanish laws, those laws, so far as this bill is concerned, are precisely in statu quo ante the Missouri enactment.: The objection that the Badger amendment prevents the revival of the Spanish laws is, therefore, not well founded. But even if it were, and if those old laws were still dead lying lifeless in their graves by the opera tion of the Nebraska Kansas billrstill, wed" not see that the rights of tbe Southern peo ple in the Territories are much the worse off' for the fact.. We are inclined to think those 1 old laws are myths at best, and that they have occupied a much larger space in the imagi 1 natious of politicians than they have ever done in the statutes and codes of the old Spanish territories. . At all event we think the rights ot southern citizens in tho terri tories are much more safely, protected uuder the regis of the constitution than they would be under the forgotten legislatiou of an an cient and alien jurisdiction. The Supreme Court of the United States finds an ample pioiecnon ior mose ngiiia in uie constitution of the Union; and, for ourselves, we think it much safer for those rights that august tri bunal should find them there thau that it should have to seek for them in the obsolete statute books of a defunct government and of a foreign language. Ibis court has declared that the right of iiroperty In slaves, "and the right to protection or this property from the laws and courts, exists. The Nebraska-Kansas bill gives the slaveholders the right of immediate appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States upon all conceivable questions affecting the right of properly ir slaves 'that ean arise in tbe local courts of the Territories. These local courts aro constituted of judges appoin ted by tbe President of the United Ktates, a national . otfiuer, who will always, we trust, be the elect of a national party, ana who is bound by his oath of office to support, the constitution ot tne United Stales, winch guaranties the right f southern citizens in fcUJ (II.V1 IV. ritorieseven where a majority of the residents may happen to be unfavorable to it ; and we are glad to be confirmed in this position be so tin rr.ucbj i southern journal as the Charles ion Mercury, from which we copy the follow . ing able ailicle : The Died Scot, decision determined that the southern people had h right to colonize our Territories with their slaves, and that, their slaves, like any other property, were entitled to protection in our Territories.-. r- But it has been said slave properly, tTxtst. as property iu a Territory, reqirres special legislation by a territorial legislature. If therefore, a territorial legislaiuie, beiiiir, bv a majority, abolilionisi, should not think proper to pass the special laws necessary for tbe protection of slavery, it must expire. The answer to this position is very simple. It is based on a false assumption of fact. It is not necessary f-.r the existeuce of slave ry in a Territory that there should be special laws passed for its lirotection. , Slvs Hr P tv iroperty just as any other subject of proper y. The courts of the United States in a Territory have only to administer the laws protecting all other property ia their appli ca ion to slaves, and the projection will lie sufficient. For instance : it is felony to steal a boise or a watch, for it is not necessary that there should be express statutes in a Territory declaring a horse or a watch l be property. Let the same law be applied lo stealing a slave. It is a criminal offense to beat cruelly, lo kill wantonly, any animal. Let the same law be applied lo the protec tion of the slave. If a mail keeps and usfs his neighbor's animals, he is amenable to damages, and so would he be in hai boring ; slave. All the judges of a Territory are ap. pointed by the President of the United Stales, by and with the cousent of the Senate, and n t by the peoplj or the legislature of a Teriitory. If a tenitoiial legislature should pass laws prohibiting or abolishing slavery in a Territory, the courts in a Territory would declare I lie ni void. If they should pass laws declai ing that the laws protecting all other kinds of property should not protect slavety they would beset aside by tbe j.idiciary. As long as a Territory is a Territory, slavery, under the constitution of the United States, must be protected as property, and the courts of tbe Territory, under the appointment and control of the head of the federal govern ment, mi s' e 1 o ca the protection, if the de cree of the Supreme Court of the United States is enforced. When a territoiial gov ernment is organized iu a Territory, all the principles of the common law are either put in force by the act creating the government of a Territory, or they enter the Territory with our citizens propria vinore : aud thus our citizens enter a 'Territory with 41! the guarantees for the protection of persons and property which tbey enjoyed iu the States. The-e Hie simply sufficient for the protection of slavery; and all argument going to show the omnipotence of squatter sovereignty, either by action or non-action over slavery in a Terri'orv, are false. Thb Mkch anic. A young man commen ced visiiiug a young lady, and appeared to be well received. Oue evening he calied at the house when it was quite late, which led the girl to inquire where be had been: 'I had to work late 10 uight,' he replied, 'Do yon work for a living?' inquired the astonished 'ill. 'Certa'nlv,' replied the young man, ' I am n mechanic' 'My brother doesn't work.' she remarked, 'md I dislike the name of me chanic, ' and she turned ud her orettv nose. This was the last time the mechanic visited that woman. lie is now a wealthy man and has one of the best of women fo" his wife. The younir woman whcdis!iked the name of mechanic is now the wife of a miserable fool a regular vagrant about grogshops and she, noor and miserable girl, is obliged to lake in washiug, in order to support herself aud children. Ye who dislike the name of mechanic. whose brothers do nothing but loaf and dress beware bow you treat the young men who woik for a living. Far better disregard the well fed pauper, with all his rings, jewelry. razen-faced nes, and pomposity, and take lo your affections tho callous-handed, intelligflut, industrious mechanic. Thousands have bit terly regretted their folly, who have tinned their backs on industry. A few years of bit" ter experience .taught thera a severe lesson.
