of alarm to the -friends of

J The New York Courier thinks no polit
ical movement or catastrophe would be
so fatal to African slavery as a dissolution
: of the Union. We quote:
4,The Constitution which created and
preserved that UTnion, secures the institu
tion from foreign interference, in those
, States where it now exists. It may not,
, it cannot, prevent the exercise of moral
; influences aimed at its destruction. The
enemies of Slavery at the north may
1 preach against it, may denounce it, and
do all which can be done indirectly to
bring it to an end: they may encourage
'slaves to run away from their masters;
they may aid them to evade the law
which justifies recapture, they may do
much to render slave'property insecue, to
make slavery odious in the eyes and
thoughts of men, to prevent its extension,
to weaken its foundation, and thus ulti
mately to secure its abolition. But allthis
will be partial, gradual and doubtful.

Atchison was to make a speech yesterday

gone to the Platte country, Atchison's

that it was not without a very apparent
motive that Atchison left his own ravage,

TEMPERANCE AT THE UNIVERSITY.

41 The present condition and character of ihe
Univt isity of Virginia, contrasted with its for
mer slate, furnishes one of (he most imptessiro
and pleasing illustrations of our views. " Moth

writing from that beloved seat of cience, I

The merchants of New York and New Ort

would shorten the steamboat travel some 1000
miles,, would reduce the time between thd cities
to tour days, and would avoid the dangers 01

pay well, and be of great public utility.
