got up an immense cencourseat Medina, or Albany

where again the honorable Senator from Ohio was
the mouthpiece to proclaim tins now creed, put

On that occasion the honorable Senator, I believe,

We regard this as the most sensible resolution
npon this subject we have yet iseen, , The idea
that a dissolution of the Union, itself the very worst
of evils, can be regarded as a remedy for any grie

the BiUiinore American, " analagous to that w hich
prompts tho morbid mind to contemplate suicide as
a means of deliverance fran the trouble of the
world." The fanatics of the North are greatly
chagrined at the waiit of unanimity ut the South
in support of Mr. Calhoun's ultra measures. . They
see, plainly enough, that agitation in this quarter,
would beget, or keep alive, agitation there and
they hopo to succeed in. tlie avowej design of dis

There is rpy friend from Oiiio (Mf. Allen,) on
the other side of tho Cliambcr who has also per
formed memorable feats upon the kattle-tields of
hi State, Why, sir, Ohio has been tlie Flanders
of this country iu the ward which have bpeji car
ried on for tee last twenty years. Many and-desperate
have been the battle-fialds there, snd many
and desperate have been the battles fought upon
those fields. . Laughter. And I believe both of
the honorable Senators who now represent that
State in llii body have been field marshal iu those

wars, and, of course, the glory accruiog to those
who bore conspicuous part in them, wliose gen

men marched deliberately forth, aud with a self-de-yotioa
scarcely paralleled in the . world's history,
exposed themselves to all the dangers, fearful as
they were, of those conflicts, where man met mau
front to front, assaulting and assaulted with that
terrible Instrumcnt.tbe sword of the tongue. Laugh

the people," continued to trace matters along down,
khowing what had been the position of such a par
ty at 6iich a time, and what had been the position
of such and such individuals at such and such times;
overhauling the United States Bank question, rear-
guing the aubtreasury scheme, extolling the Mexi
can war and the acts of the Administration, till, at
last, the-people would stand it no longer, and they
cried out again, M These are stale matters ; what
have you to eay on the question of tho proviso ?"
Laughter. Still there was no response to this
very reasonable inquiry. Then there was ft re
mark made by some one, " Jackson we know, and
Van Buren we know j but who are ye ?" Re
newed laughter. This occasioned a general shout
and brought matters pretty much to a close, and
the affair was tennina'ed in this lame and Impotent
manner. The people did not recognize the mission
or tho, doctrines ofuiy hororablo friend. They
were heretics, and had not become indoctrinated
into the faith of litis new creed, which had been
set up by (his new prophet, and therefore did they

Mr. President, these matters will come out a
