The celebration at Lincoln Hall, on Fri day evening, of Andrew Jackson's victory over the British at New Orleans, January 8, 1815. was the largest and meet harmonious meeting we have ever seen in the District of Columbia, The hall, at an early hoar, was filled to repletion with one of the most re spectable audiences ever seen at a public meeting anywhere, and, by the imtnens enthusiasm manifested, give evidence that the people Were thoroughly aroused every where over the Administration outrage to Louisiana. now. They forget that we are all Americans or freemen much more than we are Domo crats or Republicans. We Southern men have learned some things by bitter experience. We were once proud and lifted up, felt able to whip five Yankees apiece, and defied misfortune. We felt and spoke loftily. Mark what baa be fallen as. A mysterious Providence has brought us low iudeed. Our adversaries triumph, and "servants now bear rale over us.'

Fe.Fi Fo h um, 1 smell the blood of a V hue League man ; approve by my presence that I understand to be the purpose of this meeting ; namely, to revive the memory of events which shed lus tre upon the whole American people; to strengthen our lo-e of liberty and indepe dence by thinking of what they cost. It is well for us toloofe beyond the sad scenes of the late sectional conflict, and recall the common trials, common dangers, and com mon triumphs of earlier times that tbe spirit of the brotherhood may be reawakened in our souls. I am a Southern man a North Carolin- tan. This is tne nm tune l ever stooa De- fore a popular assemblage north of the Po tomac. It is a fitting time to give utterance to the real sentiments entertained by me and those who sent me to this Capital as their representee. I am here to promore peace. reunion, and revived feelings of fraternity among the American people of all sections. I am not hear to tear open old wounds, but to aid in healing them. As a citizen of the defeated and humiliated section, it might be thought natural for me to cherish bitterness and study revenge. And so, per haps, I might do if no one's fortunes but my own were at stake. But I cannot forget that in our homes there are innocent little prattlers who are to live after us. In our poverty we can leave them little else, but I want to leave them a happy, peaceful, free, well-governed country to live in. These, my countrymen, are the pledges of my pa triotism and the hostages which bind me to my allegiance. Most bartily, therefore, do I join with you in celebrating this day as a day ever memorable in the annuls of our common country. It is pleasant and profitable to recur to an event at the rjecollectiou of pride and satisfaction. The history of that event is so well known to you that I shall uot dwell upon its details. Will you pardon me for speaking from the heart, hi true simplicity and saying that while eifting here to night thinkiug of the event we celebrate and others too. which have occurred siuceone prominent thought has been uppermost, and it is this, that "pride goeth before destruction, aud a haugh ty spirit before a fall." The most striking thing to me about the battle of New Orleans is the arrogant spirit with which the British army marched into it with the impious cry of "booty and beauty" Upon their lips, aud the utter discomfiture which followed, with scarcely a scratch to the army of "Old Hick ory." It reminds one of the destruction of Seuuaehenb, when "The Angel of Death spread his wings ou the blast. And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed," - L It is impossible to avoid the thought that there are those who are at this moment seeking to subjugate that same city of New pie 0f Louisiana, that they are not vi K'iuis auu me mate ui ijouisiana, auu uo- ing so much of that same proud, reckless, and defiantly impious spirit shown by Pack- enham and his army. 1 he dissonmture will follow ; not bloody like theirs , but a political overthrow awaits the men who are actine thus recklessly which will prove, what as a Democrat 1 devoutly believe, that the peo ple of America still love liberty in their heart of hearts without respect to section or par ty.

I am be misunderstood a son of one of those sister States which nave been standing for ten years with hands crossed and bound with fetters waiting for the word of deliverauce to be spoken b v Congress whatever, when he was in command of a mailitary so servient to lawless orders as De Trobirand the other day, who only re plied to the protests of expiring liberty by saying, "I am a soldier, and have nothing to do but obey orders." Moreover there is another imminent dan ger, Our Presidential eleetions come very ofren. If States are kept in pupilage aud guardianship under Federal coutrol. how long will it be before such an election will turn upon counting out or counting iu the votes of some single State whose statehood is questioned by one party or another ? Or a State will have two governments, as sever al have now, two sets of electiors, the re cognition of one of which sets will decide a Presidential election. When such a junc ture arises, and wbo can say it may not arise in a few years, what assurance have we that it can be passed over peaceably ? Is there not too much reason to fear that there would be an outbusrt of convulsion from tbe Lakes to the Gulf, neighbor clutch ing at the throat of neighbor over the whole laud ; not a sectional war as we lately had, but a true civil war, desolating every town ship, county, aud State ? May God avert such a calamity. Having fought through the whole late war, I am able to realize the fearful evils of war. and I trust we may see no more of it iu our country. Rut what I haye said shows how easily it might come, aud that, after all, as long as we depart, in the slightest oegree, from the plain prin ciples of tbe Constitution we walk upon a volcano. It is time for us to take reckoning in soberness as to the dangers that environ us. and avert them by recurring to tbe funda mental doctrines principles ofpopular liberty which lie at the base of our institutions. It is time for us, also, to banish the spirit ot sectional strife and ill feeling, and, recog nizing each other's virtues as well as fruits, (for we all have both ) learn to forget and forgive, and be brothers again. We of the South are not perfect. Neither are we so bad as our eueuiies paint us. Rut 1 am not going uow to enter upon any defence of our people. Permit me to say, however, in behalf of the duwntroddeu peo- assas sins ; and the best proot of it is this : Kel logg lives, Longstreet lives, Packard lives. and many others whose crimes have affronted high Heaven and whose oppressions might make even wise men mad." In eonclusioo, let me pay a tribute to the horic patience and forbearance of the peo ple of New Orleans. They show that greatuess which is superior to all others the power to rule their own spirits. Such fortitude under sore trial would do honor to any race of men ; it is glorious ; it must be God-given. I hail it as the inspiration of coming deliverance and the harbinger of Louisiana's redemption. I thank you, gen tlemen, for hearing me so patiently.

A single vote in New York city, says the Express, made Jefferson President of the United States, and this one vote moved tbe poli cy ot the Government not only under Jefferson, but under his successor, Jsmes Madison.
