COOK & CO ASKING TO BE LET ALONE 13 NOT AGITA TION. Wc find men, both Xorth ami South, still deploriDg tho agitation of the slavery ques tion, and proclaiming that it must be put down. There is no asitation iu the South. All that our people a.-k is lo he, let alone! The North has Dot only trampled on nur Constitutional rights, armed and equipped with a thousand spears, to be put into the hands of a servile race, to cut the throats of men, women nnd children. Southern men citizens of Virginia the S'ate that gave birth to Washington hnve been drug god from their beds and murdered like dogs on the way side, and when we complain of these wrongs and outrages we are called A g i-t a t-o r s I Pray, what lire we agita ting ? Why, simply, whether or Dot we had better submit or contend for our Constitu tional rights whether we hud better give up all as lost or contend for honor. The South cannot yield the North can. In the North slavery is but an abstract ques. tion, whilst in the South it is a practical one. We have about fifteen hundred mil lions of dollars vested in this kind of prop erty for agricultural purposes, &c. Cotton is the great staple of the South yes, it is tbe " feamson s hair of America and the market price for this staple regulates the price of all Southern aud Western products, and also the value of the stock upon your farms. When we bear in mind that the people of the North are the beneficiaries of this great staple, produced by slave labor, anu ior tne cultivation oi wincti no other is well suited, their prejudice and aggressive policy can only bo attributed to the blindest fanaticism, or a total disregard of the alle giance which they owe to tho federal Con stitution. 1 lie south would be able to prosper out of the Union quite as well as the North, if not better, due bouth is less dependant upon the North than the North is upon the bouth. What could the North do without tho market of the South? For half a con- tury we have been building up their mart? and commerce by resources and trade from the South. We even buy our iron North, whilst our own mines are hnrthened with' this valuable and indispensible mineral The people of tho South will lose nothing if the North forces her but of the Union, We know nor. what destiny awaits the bouth, but this we do know, that wc are for the South. In times like these we have but one motto, and that is Decatur's: "My country : may she, always be right : but, right or wrong, my country." If tbe South is right in resisting Kggres- sintj, nnd should insist on "equality in the the Union or independence out of if," we sido with her; if wrong, still we clina to the South : " whither thou goest I will go; and where thou lodgest I will lodge; thy people shall bo my people, aud thy God my God." THE SPEAKERS. The ''Occasional" corr-spondeut of the Philadelphia Press, says : The speaker of the first Amorienn Con irress was a Pcnnsyivatiian Frederick A. Muhlenberg and he was re-elected to that post in the third Congress, lie was sue needed Dy jotinainan Dayton, or rut w Jer sey, the ancestor of the present Hon. Wm. L. Dayton, of that State, who remained in the chair for four years. Then came Geo. Dent, of Maryland, in the 5th; Theodore Sedgwick, of Massachusetts, in theCth; Nathaniel Macon, of North Carolina, in the seventh, eighth and ninth; Joseph V Var oum, of Massacusetts, in the 10th and 11th, aud then Henry Clay. .Mr. Clay was a model speaker of the House. He began in that capacity when just thirty four years of age, and served in all about ten years. He occu pied tne ch- ir (except during part of the Thirteenth Congress wheu Langdon Cheves was chosen to fill the vacancy occasioned by r. Clay's resignation on his appointment to act as one of the commissioners to arrange the treaty of Ghent, aud during his absence in the second session of the Sixteenth and the Seventeenth Congress,) until March 3d, 1825. After Mr. Clnv came John W. Taylor, of New York, in the Nineteenth Congress, and Andrew Stevenson, of Virginia, in the Twentieth, Twenty-first, Twenty-second, and part of the 1 wenty-third ; John liell, oi Tenncssej, in the Twenty fourth, and J imcs K. Polk, of the same State, in the lwouty- fifth and Twenty-sixth. Mr. Polk was re garded as only second to Mr. Clay. His promtitude and integrity, his impartiality and his courage, endeared him to men of all parties during the most excited period in which he acted, and, no doubt, made biui promineut for the Presidency, which posi tion he attained in a few years after his re tirement from Congress. Ho was succeeded in the Twenty-seventh Congress, by Robert M. T, Hunter, of Virginia, who was elected after a severe struggle, as a Whig. Follow ing Mr. Hunter came John Into, ot Ken tucky, in tho; Tweuty eightli Congress, and in the extra session which ensued, John W. Joues, of Virginia. John W. Davis, of Iu diana, presided over the Twenty-ninth Con.. ijresis; Robert C. , Winthrop, of Massachu setts, over tho Thirtieth,'', Howell Cobb, of Georgia, over ,tho Thirty first; Lynu JJoyd, of Kentucky, over tho Thirty. second; Na thaniel P. Banks,' , of Massachusetts, over tho Thirty-third, and Jatncs L. Orr, oi S. Carolina, over tho Thirty-fourth. The corpse of John Brown arrived in New York on Satutday evening, the 3d inst., and was taken in charge by some friends, by whom, on Monday, it was conveyed to Al bany. While in New York it lay in state in tbe Bowery, and was exhibited to a num ber of , citizens favorable to the Brown and Helper programme. ( THKMS Tliree MUSIC.

Musio, from the lofy pines, In deep under tones, Sweeps adown the long drawn aisles Of temples, nature owns. And music lifts the nspcu's Gleaming, quivering leaves ; The storm king conies iu mudio, And the tempest grieves. All nature lives in music. Cradled is the earth, lu lullabies of birdlings, Songs of summer birth. AH steeped in varying musio Are the passing years. And still above in musio Roll the solemn spheres.

The Liverpool Mercury says : Reports are current as to the approaching double matrinirmial connections between tbe royal fatnilifs of Prussia and Holland, which will tend still further to increase the intimacy which already subsists bet we m them. Tho first that is spoken ot is the marriago of tho Princo of Orango and tho Princess Alexandrine, daughter of His Roy i Hicbnoss Prince Albert of Prussia. I lie princess has frequently been referred to as the probable future consort of the Princo of Walos, Lut it would appear that other ar rangements are now thought of as to tho future Queen of Encland. Tho second mar.. riace, which id now tho subject of specula tion in court circles at Berlin, is that of tho son of Prince Albert of Prussia with th daughter of Ilis Royal Highness Prince Frederick of the JNetlierianas. Mr. Gowcn, the American contractor for removing tha obstructions from Scbastopol haibor, bns now finished his work with the outer line of sunken vessels, so that they do not ' obstruct navigation. Tuo largo frigate Vladimir, was successfully raised October Dollars Per Annum, in Advance DISUNION. Tbe disunion sentiment prevails in Viri ginia to a considerable exteut since tha Brown excitement. The most conservative have been forced to become lire-eaters, whom they have denounced as plotters against tho Government. Even the Richmond Whig has ceased to abuse that class of politicians called extremists, and instead of counseling, as it did a few weeks since, a coalition of all the elements opposed to tbe Democracy to defeat it iu the organization of tbe next Congress, it now repudiates any sympathy with the Republicans, even for the spoils, and will hoist the Southern flag alone for shelter. The ltepublicnu of Savannah even thinks a good drubbing would do the aboli tionists good. When these old fogy, con servative, union-loving journals speak out so boldly, tbe States RiL'hts Dartv mav know that tbe last barrier to a uuited South upon the basis of true independence is being bro ken clown, lbe mother of the states, tho Union, bus graduated her children, married them off, and tbe old roof being too small for all, a common interest would seem to de mand a suparution to prevent disputes and opeu the way to wealth and prosperity. Columbus (Ga.) Times. Democratic Meeting in DeSoto. A meeting of tbe Democracy of DeSoto was held at Hernando, on Mouday, the 5th inst. The Hon. Mr. Clapp made an eloquent speech in advocacy of Southern Rights and South ern honor. He was followed by Hon. Tom. Harrison, of Holly Springs, in an able and convincing address, taking strong Southern grouuds. No resolutions were passed. Delegates were appointed to attend the State Oonvention, which meets in this city next Monday. Among the delegates, we notice tha names of two members of the Legisla ture from that county. Hons. Jas. D. Rnf fin and J. C. Culberts.m, and such other gallaut Southern spirits as Jas. R. Chalmers, F. Labouve, Jas. E. Mathews, V. II. Mem wether, and others. In place of resolutions, a fine Military company was fully organized. A good course. Gin. Starke's Amendments to ths Federal Resolutions. We stated (in a letter from Jackson,) a few days ago, that Gen. Starke, the Senator from Bolivar, had offered amendments to tho resolutions oc federal relations, already published by us. The following are his amendments : Resolved, That the resolutions he re corns mitted to the Committee on State and Fed eral Relations, with instructions to amend the first resolution so as to declare it to be the duty of Congrers to pass nece3fary laws for the protection of slave property in the Territories of the United States. Also, to amend the second resolution so ns to declare the election of a Northern sec tional candidate to the Presidency, will jus tify the Southern States, and make it their djty to dissolve all connection with tho Northern States, and to establish a Southern confederacy. 0 The Banner to Stand or Die Br Under this head, the infamous book of Helper, indorsed by tbe Governor of New York nnd sixty-eight members of Congress, merchants, munufacturers, &c, has this among its recommendations: "No pa'ronage to prosslavery merchants; no guestship in slavewaiting hotels ; no fees to pro slavery lawyers ; no employment of pro-shivery physicians ; no audience to pro sl.ivery parsons." People of tbe Sonth, will yon not retalis ate upon these men in their own kind F Will you not give them a taste of their own medicines ? Richmond Dispatch. A lady in Xenia, Ohio, after having been troubled for some lime by slanderous letters addressed to her friends, appealed to tho 1'ostinaster for relief. He put a private mark on five postage stamps, four of which wore sold to the suspected individual. In two or three days two of the four marked stumps came back on letters addressed to the lady's brother-in-law, and to her minister. The writer was soon invited to the residence of the lady, when he was treated to a cow hiding by tbe injured female and her sister-in-law. Georgia Moving. The citizens of Mas con and Columbus (Ga.) have formed Vitri lanec Committees, vested with power to djul summarily with all suspected characters, re sident or imported. In the latter city, three itinerant book agents were overhauled, and their characters being investigated, sulheient evidence was adduced to justify their expul sion from tho city, which was accordingly done.
