VIEWS FROM THE SOUTH "
" But I grieve to see o many elements of national
prejudice, hostility, aad selfishness, sti im? and fer
menting with activity and acrimony." Washington
Irving' late Letter .
An interesting letter has been put into our
hands written a few days past by one of the
Klo -itipjis oi ooutn Carolina.
-if his views arc correct, it would be high time
tor every man, who loves the Union, to be on
the alert. He criticises the late proceedings
of the Convention, and the more Tccent exhi
bitions in Charleston and he comes to the
conclusion, that there is a party in South Car
olina, whose object is to bring about a South
ern Confederacy, and ultimately a separation
of the Union. He contends that " the nullifi
cation of the Tariff was one of the schemes by
M'hich these politicians hoped to accomplish

Version of some of the remarks which were,
recently made in Congress, upon the essen
tial difference between the labor of freemen
and of slaves, &c. &c. and by pourtraying in
the darkest colours the liberticide character
of the "bloody bill, they calculate upon being
able to produce a union of feeling, and ulti
"mately, a union of action among those, who
have hitherto remained unseduced by their so
phistrv and declamation. Havne, and Ham
ilton, and Harper, and McDuffic, and Turnbull,
have openly declared, that the battle with the
general government is not over that it i3 just
commenced, &c. &c. that the States cannot
protect its rights without being armed for de
fence and resistance. The Report of the Com-i
mittce upon the Enforcing Bill declares that
- these States' (ihe Southern) " constitute a ,
minority, and are likely to do so for ever.
They differ in institutions, and modes of in
dustry from the States of majority, and have
different, and in some degree, incompatible
interests. They arc to be governed, not with
reference to their own interest, or according
to their own habits and interests but according
Jo the prejudices of their rulers, the majority.

system constitutes bu,t a small part of our con

GREAT FIRE IN MONTREAL !
The New York papers of last evening, furnish j
statements of the destruction bv fire on the evening!
of the 24th inst. of the "British American Hotel," one
of the largest and most splendid edifices in Montreal,
The following particulars we find communicated in
the New York Commercial Advertiser:
At a quarter before eisrht jlast evening, while the
company were assembling lor tne soiree luusicai
ot the Messrs. Hermann, at the Uritisti American
Hotel, the alarm offireinthat noble edifice roused
he numerous inmates from their respective occupa
tions, and belore almost the alarm had reached the
street, this splendid Hptel exhibited one mass of fire,
extending its sway Irom one floor to another, produ
cing a scene ol awful grandeur and desolation, scarce
ly paralleled in the history ol Montreal. About thir
ty ladies and gentlemen had assembled in the large
ball room to attend the Concert the boarders and
other inmue3 ware engaged at tea, when the
blaze of a lamp, suspended jon the branch of one of
the evergreens, which formed the decoration ol the
rpassage at the Bachelor's ball, and which have re
mained undisturneci since mat penou, communicated
with the whole range of trees, and produced one in
stantaneous conflagration, I which soon raged with
the most destructive and irresistible fury through the
entire building, leaving the inmates to secure their
flight by ladders and through windows, possessed
only of the clothes they wore, without even'a moment's
opportunity to secure any; of their baggage or pro
perty. With difficulty the concert room was cleared,
by taking the company down by ladders placed to
the front windows, the flames rushing into the room
from the burning evergreens in the passage, and pro
hibiting all egress by that channel. 1 he scene ol
confusion that ensued baffles all human description,
and all attempts to secure! property proved hopeless.
Some articles ol lumiture jwere removed at the only
favorable moment, nut, we regret to say, that many
of the boarders lost all they possessed.
Fortunately for the cause ol science and philan
thropy, Captain Back secured his baggage and scien
tific instruments, which had been so arranged as to
be ready for his movements to Lachinethat evening.
The Messrs. Herrmann &1 Co. who were about com
mencing a concert, lost every article of money, pro
perty, and instruments thty possessed, the result of a
leng and honorable professional career, including
among the latter a violinc'ello of peculiar power, and
which"3 cost nearly 200.i; Mr. Lidel Hermann, in
making a desperate rush to secure his trunk, got him
self dreadfully burned in the head and face, and is
otherwise, much injured, (but was at last dragged
away and saved by the active mtertcrence ot Mr.

fire, but through the activity ot tne various engines
were speediiy saved. All attempts to extinguish tne
fire in the British American Hotel having proved
unsuccessful, the whole building became m forty mi
nutes a heap of ruins, hi very eye was now turned
to the Bonsecours Church, the steeple and spire of
which, it was generally (thought, would spread down
wards to the building, but owing to the practice of the
engines on the roof an! eaves, and to the most heroic
devotion on the part of Mr. Joseph Poitras, carpenter,
assisted by a soldier whose name we have not learned,
the church was savedj Poitras and his companion
cut a hole in the steeple; with an axe, surrounded bv
the smoke and flames of the burning spire, as well as
that ascending from Rasco's Hcrtel, and aller exhibit-
in the most daring courage and insensibility to per
sonal danger, Poitras effectually succeeded in cut

which he effected with an ax and saw. The Thea
