and sey at
npoii the North, as the North has since
been upon her, she would have retained
her preponderance aud power over this
country. Had she been" grasping, or had
she sfuiply held to her own, she would iiot
be where she now lies, bleeding and plun
dered, at the feet of tho North--of that
.North which has received all its power,
all its-ability to butcher and to plunder,
at the bountiful and unsuspecting hand of
the South itself.
The next important step in the history
of our country was the purchase of Lou
isiana from France; -Hilda measure so
necessary to our national prosperity, and
which has contributed so unlimitedlyi to
our wealth, was absolutely opposed by a
portion of the North, because it would
bring slave territory into the Union. Vir-
rinia-had first voluntarily jriven all her
vast North-western territory to the Union,
and freely devoted it to noii-slaveholdjng
laws. : But immediately upon this great
and generous event, the North tried to
prevent the purchase of the territory; of
iLouisana, though it was indispensable to
our safety and prosperity, because if would
add slave territory to the Union, or, as it
was said, "added political strength to the
South." Vho was errasnine then? Who
was aggressive then! Who was gener
ous and unsuspecting, aud who grasping
and suspicions ?
By the lav, of France, slavery existed in
all that territory, and as this law was not
repealed by the act of purchase, it was still
slave-holding. Indeed, the-rights of the
inhabitants were expressly guaranteed to
them bv the treaty: and the laws of the
territory being slave-holding, the institu
tion was guaranteed and perpetuated sin
all that count ry
At the date of this purchase, in 1803,
there tvfiM t'iirht ftlaveholdine and nine
non-slavehohling States. Out of the ter
ritory then belonging to tho United. States,
the slave States could add but two ;to
their number, viz., Alabama and Missis
sippi; while the non-slavehohling "States
had five to be added, vur Indiana, Hit
nois, ."Michigan, Wisconsin, and Maine.
When all these were admitted, the North
would have fourteen Status, and the South
ten The acquisition of Louisiana-from

How fatally true was tins prophecy !
And the historian of this country's fall
will justify these melancholy words of
Jefferson, that it was the aggressive tem
per and unjust demands of the North
which proved our ruin. Had the South al
ways kept what belonged to her, and had
she never yielded any portion of her rights
to settle angry growls of disunion from
the -North, this country would never occu
py the disgraceful atitude it now does in
the eyes of civilized mankind. It would
have been infinitely better that New Eng
land should have left the Union, as she
attempted todoin 1812, or as she threaten
ed to do in 1820, and on several other oc
casions ; for the rest of the country
would have reposed for ever in the anus
of peace aud prosjerity.
The vast domain now covered by ten or
twelve non-slaveholding States aud territ
tories once belonged to the South, and
she was able to keep it ; it was through
an unsusjiecting generosity that she gave
it up. The population of the very terri
tory which was her gift to the Uniou have
turned upon their mother, to carry over
her bosom, with fire and sword, the med
dlcsom and intolerable spirit of New
England. If the South had been "grasp
ing" if the spirit of "incroachmentnhad
guided her couueils, the North would nev
er have had the preponderance of power
to work the ruin it has. Examiner. j

A Lesson to a "Lady-Killer."
A sensational Story is told of a young
"lady-killer," of New York, aud his hu
miliating experience in attempting to
form the acquaintance of a young lady re
siding in Elm street, in this city. The
names of both parties are suppressed for
obvious reasons. I The story is that the
young lady, who:is, of course, attractive,
was intently reading in tlie cars at the
Jersey City depot ou Friday afternoon,
when a note was! dropped in her lap by
an employe, who instantly disappeared.
In her excitement she put it in her pock
et without reading, and on reaching home
told her father of the occurrauceand gave
him the note, which proved to lie a re
quest for her adjdresa ;to be scut to the
care of a South William street merchant.
A consultation ensued, re.altiug iu a let
ter written by the young lady's uncle
"Heury" and copied by her, favoring his
friendship and appointing a meeting in
Military Park. She accordingly met him
there and he was unexpectedly conducted
to her home and introduced to the family
circle, which was assembled in full force,
and after an embarrassing reprimand was
allowed to depart with promises not to do
so again. Xeuurk (S. J.) Advertiser.
What a Max Shouldh't Do at the
South". The Itev. Dr. Talmage preached
yesterday on politics, being recently back
from a journey through the Southren States.
His text was: '"Give me a blessing, for
thou hast given me a southland; give' me
also springs of water." He said there had
been a persistent and outrageous misrepre
sentation of the feeling at the South toward
the North by correspondents and politicians.
"Of course," Mr. Talmage said, "If a man
jumps from the cars, dumps his valise into
the railroad station, goes to a plantation
and says: 4 We whipped you in the war and
we will w hip yon again. I come from Bosl

two personal encounters between them, one
of them was pretty badly used up by the
other. On the second occasion the defeated

swore that if the bther ever attempted such
