But a description of the good things, bright

"Notwithstanding the strong impression made
upon me by my energetic young frieud of the se
cession party, and my admiration of the manner
in which he proved how greatly the men of the
present time excel those of the past, I was still
far from being convinced that the causes alleg
ed for his enterprise jwere sufficiently weighty.
Indeed, I began to feel somewhat impatient at
the peremptory manner in which he demanded
an implicit assent to each one of his statements.
With all my efforts, I could not understand the
nature of those things which are called aggres.
sions of the Federal Government.
I bad not the clairvoyance necessary for dis
cerning them.. I desired, therefore, that he
would cease for a season from playing the parts
of Lord Peter, and explain in a common way,
for the benefit of farmers and laboring men,
what those wrongs are, under which the State
is suffering. I feel no diminution, as one of her
citizens, of my rights under the Constitution.
I enjoy the same proportionate influence in ihe
Slate and in the United States as I have done
heretofore : my person, my property, my pur
suits are quite as much protected as formerly.
If I am wronged, degraded, insulted, how has
all this been done ? How has jt been brought
about without my feelings knowing it Are all
the States under a sort of mesmeric influence ?
Has chloroform been administered to the whole
South, except South Carolina ? It is not enough
totell me thai I am obtuse, insensible, spiritless,
and therefore unable to see, feel, or resist. I
insist on being informed, and not being .com
pelted to swallow the dogmas of any man, how
ever great a patriot be may be although claim
ing superior wisdom to that of rre.nklin or
Washingtop. Indeed, just in proportion to the
frequency and confidence with which the se
cession patriots insist on their superior honor,
honesty and courage, I am inclined to reflect
that it is nol very usual, to say the least of it,
for good men and brave men to boast of iheir
virtue or bravery ; and I am induced, therefore,
to demand the more pertinatiously a reason for
their opinions. The Sempronius of Cato's
little Senate, whose f'voice was still jor war,"
was not remarkable, jf the story be true, for the
fidelity with which he redeemed his pledges.
The Sempronu of the present day prove to be
as little trustworthy, even when, like those of
Bluffton, they profess to be eager for fights, nol
only when the cause is good, and the occasion
a fit one, but when they are in utter doubt
whether there be any cause or occasion at all.

In view of these faetg. then, and having been

the convention in question was numerous, re

dent doubtless represents a large cla?s whode
sire information in these respects, in order to
avoid the danger which they are conscious a
waits them. S
We answer, first, that to he best of our
knowledge and belief, Mr. Holmes, the fool
killer, is not located in these parts ; that he
has no permanent abiding place, his business
requiring that he should itinerate to and. fro
over the face of the earth and walk up and
down in it continually ; in short, that he is the
individual that struck Billy Patterson.
Secondly, if be is a sensible person, and en
tertains ordinary regard for his own ease, he
will hardly be present in his discharge of his
official duty at August Court j he would find
too big a job for htm to undertake at once, con

From a 4th of July article, in a Hartford pa
per, pointing out certain things which we the
people lack in this, 44 the greatest country on
the face of the airlh," we take the following :
We need, as a nation, more personal virtue
a greater individual subjection to law.
Crime is becoming too common amongst us.
Laws are yearly becoming less stringent and
erficacioirs in putting down vice. A disregard
to that'elevated standard of pure public morals,
which once was our glory and our safeguard, is
becoming more powerful every day. By the
destruction of public morality the loss of public
industry and thrift will follow. While we are
manifesting to other nations the apparent in
fluences of a free Government, our own condi
tion will too surely become the freedom of Ii
centiousnesp, not of law. Amidst such a de
terioration of public morals, we soon shall feel
Ihe influence of the demagogue, who can much
more readily control the vicious and the de
praved than ihe upright and pure. The in flu
ence of the demagogue, with his coruptions,
will float us surely to the brink of the cataract
lhat has engulphed every former rupubtic ; for
the demagogue and the military despot, in a na
lion like ours, are but succeeding steps oi that
same downward progress. r j
ffj Junius Smith writes from South
. j i
Carolina on the 4th of July that he was
enjoying a. cup of tea froln plants of his
own raising. He pronounces it the best
tea he ever tasted. J
Twiller, or Walter the Doubter, found the hab
it of doubting always calming, soothing, and se
dative in its naiure. He is described, by his
scrupulously-exact historian, as being "five feet
6ix inches in height, and six feet five inches in
circumference his face of vast expanse, his
cheeks seemed to take toll of every thing that
went in his mouth." In his time there was no
wrangling or fighting, no public commotions or
private quarrels, no parties, no schisms. He
doubted, but not to fight : on the contrary, there
was profound tranquility around him. It is not
so with the Van Twillers of the present day.
In New Amsterdam, to doubt was to slumber ;
in BlufTion, to doubt is to fight. The ancient
Walter, when in dubious mood, betook himself
to his pipe the modern turns to his musket ; the
ancient involved his doubts in a cloud of tobac
co smoke the modern hides his in one of gun-
powder. This diversity of temper and practice
is the more surprising since 'here is, as I am
informed, a perfect resemblance in the bodily
dimentions of the two doubters the Van Twil
lers of New Amsterdam and of Blufflon. There
are the same rotundity of figure, the same
breadth of face, the same toll gathering cheeks.
How, it may be asked, can he carry out his bel
ligerant intentions ? To walk is impossible
and no horse can charge under snch a moun
tain of flesh. It will be necessary for him to
fight from a howd ah, or some war elephant,
which the patriotic citizens of BlufTion will, no
doubt procure from India, in due time for the

olina ? Was the land ours ? Was nolThe case
simply this ? The people of Texas held certain
lands. Ii was doubted: whether they belonged
to Texas. A collision Lwas apprehended be
tween Texas and the United States, because
of this doubt. To settle the controversy, a com.
promise was made. Texas sold the lands, the
United States bought them. The difficulty
was adjusted, and civil war was avoidpd.
That is the very thing, my friend replied
you have said it that adjustment of the diffi
culty that avoidance of civil war is what makes
the wrongdone toSouth Carolina. But for lhat
atrocious arrangement of the dispute our distin
guished seceders. who b ave a decided fondness
for a strong excitement would have had a very
pretty opportunity for indulging iheir favoxite
fancy. It deprived them of the pleasure, in the
first place,, which lookers on alwas take in a
vigorous conflict of any kind. It gave them the j
same reason to complain which the neighbours 1
and especially the lawyers always have, when
two men are disputing the title to an estate, and
one offers and the otheil accepts a compromise j
spoiling thereby a ver) interesting case, and j
the fun and fees that might grow out of it. It !
took away entirely a most promising prospect
ofcivil war on a large scale ; and ypu know, our
designed lo convey a palpable sneer upon the
patriotism of those who had signed the call for
ihe meeting. Mr. Carroll comes out ihe next
day in a communication in which he deities the
the allegations, and appends the resolution he
had offered as evidence that he could have been
influenced by no such design. The Mercury
takes up the cudgels in his behalf, and express
es supreme sUrpTise how the meeting could
have 44 committed the unaccountable indiscre
lion of treating it with contempt. " Here it
is : .
Resolved, That while we cannot believe our
sister States of the South will submit, for any
considerable time, to the recent aggressiqns of
the Federal Government upon their rights, and
while we have full faith in their intentions to
co-operate with each other for the vindication
of those rights, we nevertheless declare that
to South Carolina is due the allegiance of each
of her citizens, and that much as we deprecate
her separate secession Irom the Union, under
existing circumstances, yet should her const itu
Jed authorities resolve upon such a measure, we
shall then hold it treason in any son of hers lo
oppose such determination.
Wemust confess our surprise, though at the
same time our extreme gratification, that such
- j: i U l i I- r:. T.
it uispusiuon tmouiu nave ucen m;iuo ui ii. u i
certainly does indicate the existence of a
healthier tone of public sentiment than we have
been accustomed to look for even in Charleston.
The doctrine thai the only, allegiance due from
a South Carolinan is to his own State, and that
the majority have the absolute power of control
we had supposed, met with the almost univer
sal assent of the people. We are glad there
fore that a meeting of compromising much of
the intelligence and virtue of the capital of the
State should have rebuked so wild and absurd
a heresy. Admit the doctrine in its full force,
and any State government may become little
better than an oppressive despotism.
Heretofore the advocates ofimmediate seces
sion have encouraged the idea, that whatev.
er difference of opinion might exist in regard
to the policy of this move, yet should it be de
termined on by a majority of the people, all dis
sension would at once be healed, and the ut
most unanimity of feeling and purpose prevail
throughout the Slate. The opponents, too, of
secession have generally yielded their assent
to these bold assertions, and rarely, if ever,
took any pains to deny them. In this way the
belief has become common that the decision of
the mere majority would control the destinies
of the State, and affect, most sensibly, the con
dition of the other parts of the Confederacy.
The action however of the Charleston meeting
will go far to dispel this illusion. It has posi
tively repudiated the doctrine that it is treason
to the Slate to refuse to sustain the act of a mere
majority, no matter how presumptuous and per
nicious lhat action may be. This but confirms
us in the idea we have for some time entertain
ed, that when the crisis arrives, the State will
have to conquer one half of its own population
before it can successfully make war upon the
ballance of the Union.
The Charleston Mercury, the organ of the
fire-eaters, is evidently alarmed at ihe indica
tions which the rejection of Mr. Carroll's reso
lution very naturally afforded. It winds up a
fretful and rather doleful article with the follow
ing significant paragraph:
"Are we not justified, then, in inferring that
there is in this movement an element ol no
small force that endangers its fidelity to the
principles it has avowed, and even threatens to
undermine its reverence for the allegiance
which the citizen owes to his Slate ? We trust
there is intelligence and patriotism enough in
the parly to save it from so disastrous a lesuh."
ic bulletins, however, having cjnf

NULLIFICATION AND SECESSION.
There is no doctrine when rightly un
derstood by the people, more odious and
repulsive than this. The idea of dissolv
ing the Union of these States, and plung
ing the country in a civil war appears to
strike the peaceful, contented portion of
both sections of the country, with horror ;
and'well it might, for they are the ones
who will have to suffer most, not only in
the safety of their person, but also in de- i the call issued for a State Con vent tor.

paid and it was offered successively lo the

estate, and was by eae-h of them refused. It is
a mistake that either Mr. Calhoun or his es
tate was embarrassed. His property, on his
death, was worth about one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars, and his debt due some bank
in South Carolina, was only about twenty-five
thousand. So that there was no embarrass

thirty thousand dollars, had been paid up by
his friends, they, on the refusal of his sons lo
accept it, forwarded a check fot ihe amount to
