THE OJIERJF THE EMON. SHALL IT BE DESTROYED OR;PRESERVED. SUi XI Fll' A\ T 11* DH ATION S. SIGNS IN OUR SOUTHERN SKY. From the Mobile (Ala.) Register, Douglas and Jo hnscn.) A REVOLUTION BEFORE US. —And so wilf come Disunion when it comes. And so it was intended to corr.e. The programme was skil fully arranged. Divide the South ; paralyze the million and a half conservatives of the North who, backed by a united South, could have crushed the Republicans ; encourage the hopes and redouble the energies of the Black Re | publicans ; elect Lincoln, and then—Hurrah j for disruption and a Southern Confederacy I j That's (he programme of the leaders. Many honest B. &.L. men do not see it so and do not believe it yet. But they will se it. When the banner of civil war is raised and commerce is deranged, when the price of prop erty is disturbed, capitalists withdraw their money from circulation and the distrust and doubt, which always come aiong with great po litical changes, appear : when B. &L. planters who have followed the mad hurra alter an ab straction in the Territories find that in groping at a shadow they have lost the substance— when their lands and negroes, feeling the chil ling effects of the rrrpat change, tumble down fiftv or sixt* per cent in value, and nothing goes up but the price of powder and ball, and nothing is at a premium but new inventions ol ppicoao;™ and -yuicl-repeating rifles, pis- j tols and guns. And now we stand within a brief month of the grand finale ! Merchants, planters, capi talists, mechanics, working-men, fathers, hus bands, brothers, nay, wives, mothers, sisters and daughters, look it in the face', and tell, as your pulses quicken and your, cheeks blanch, lor what good end will this mighty change from safetv to peril, from peace to war, have been invoked ? There is but one answer, and it will be "we have broken up the most magnifi cent empire the sun ever shone upon rather than allow American citizens in American Territories the privilege of SELF-GOVERN MENT." That's all. That's the whole dispute. II there is anything else, as God is our judge, we cannot findit. For this, we are brougnt lace to face with the hour when a great empire may fall in the throes and agonies of dissolu tion. The Advertiser, (Breckinridge,) of the same place, gives a brief report of a speech by Gen. Walker, of that State, made lately fat Cowpen Springs, in Lauderdale county, from which we extract briefly : "In reply to the question, "What would he do if Lincoln is elected ?" Gen. VV. said, drawing himself up to his full height, and in the sublimest strain of eloquence, "that, come weal or woe, so help him God, he would not submit, and he would take the banner ot the Constitution and plant it where the honor or safety of Ihe South demanded, and that he would defend it with his life and fortune against Sar acens or Moors ! His answer was noble and grand, and nobly was it answered by the crowd. One old gentleman whose white locks and tot tering lortn indicated that he had run his "three score years and ten," called Gen. VV. to his chair, after he closed, and, with tears running down |h is cheeks, said, "General, I wish I was young; I would fight and die with you." Ido not honestly believe, except two or three Douglas leaders, that there were half a dozen in the crowd that dissented from Gen. Walker's speech. Our people are now thor ougly aroused. SOUTH CAROLINA A SECESSION UNIT. From the Charleston Mercury, (Breck.) The question of separate secession of South CaroKna in the event of Lincoln's election, and other States in the South failing to lead, being premature, and not a subject for action before the Legislature, has not been made an issue in the canvass. We believe that the delegation, almost to a man, will vote to arm the State and call a Stat® Convention, and place South Caro lina by thesideof Alabama. Our readers will remember that the Governor ol Alabama is in structed to issue writs of election, and summon a convention of the people of that State, within forty days after it is ascertained that a Black Republican is elected to the Presidency. Hon. J/Slideil, United from Louisiana, has published an address to the peo ple of the United States, in which the fallow ing passage occurs : "There was a time, and that, too, not very remote, fellow-citizens, when the word disunion fell upon my ear with painful dissonance; when I had unbounded faith in the perma nence of our institutions, and rejected, as al most blasphemous, the mere intimation of the possibility of their dissolution. The Union had no more devoted worshipper at its shrine than I, when, at the bidding ot I took my seat in the Senate of the United States. My views on that subject have since been undergo ing a gradual chaoge, until by slew degrees, ] have reluctlantly arrived at the conviction that unless some great, and to me, unexpected rev olution shall take place in the sentiment of the free States, we cannot with safety and honor continue the connection much longer. From the Petersburg (Va.) Bulletin. In such a condition of affairs, with a hostile [ power marching upon us, their destructive pur- j poses blazoned on their banners, how idle, how 1 worse than idle, how criminal is it for the South to suffer itself to be divided on unimpor tant issues ? As one mun the whole Sooth would present a United front to the advancing j enemy. And yet, contending factions Jdistract her counsels, and in their mad strife for ascen dancy, destroy her efficiency. But we cannot ; believe that such a state of things is to continue, j We canno' believe that men will be so blinded ! by a party zeal, as not to see that a common j danger threatens all, which can only be averted j 'bv a union of our entire strength. The insti-j tutious of the South are placed m serious peril, ; her independence is assailed, and her subjuga tion determined |on. Retreat is impossible, j We must lace the danger when it comes. Sur- • render means destruction, and compromise is j treason. In the Union the battle is to be fought, and that right quickly. It becomes then, the duty of every Southern man to rally to the defence of what he holds most dear, the institutions under which he was reared, and the Constitution which upholds them. Let past differences be overlooked, and pre sent feuds be buried, and, in the presence of a | common danger, let us be united in a common defence." From the Clayton CAla.) Banner. We have but little doubt that South Caroli na is prepared to secede in the contingency sup posed, and if no other State will lead, though heretofore we lavored co-operation, we now say j let her go first, if within three weeks after the j election of Lincoln, Georgia, Texas, Mississippi, ! Florida, or Alabama failed to lead off. We name these States in the order we prefer in reference to the popularization of the move ment. But how ? It must be by coup d'etat, or it will fall through and tail. South Caroli na, with her abstractions and nonsense, will be tor calling a convention and discussing, in field and fireside, the question of disunion. This lolly will end only in servile insurreciions.— Already the mere Presidential canvass is pro voking them everywhere. The direct ques- I tion ot the Union or Disunion of slavery vel nun, ~;il iuc;iably f?ive them birth. The Legislatures have sovereign power, ana oy prompt action may avoid this disastrous result, and lead their constituencies to the haven ot security and rest. Let the Governor convene the ordinary Legislature, let them next day de clare the Union dissolved, and pass an act, de nouncing as traitors, putting out of legal pro tection, whoever may gainsay the measure.— This done, and universal suffrage, with its uni versal slavery basis, is perpetual. Wit If any other course schism and bickering ensue, and an enemy's party i- organized among us, which backed by the federal power, will effectually cripple and destroy us. Here is a brief article from the Auburn (Ala.) Sketch Book, of the 25th ult "Whether there be secession, revolution, or j what not, one thing is certain— Lincoln nev- } er can be President of the Southern States.— ] He is not so elect ed. We will have no Pres- j ident then, until the Black Republican parly j recede from ttieir position and allow the elec- ! tion of a national man. or until forced by their : refusal, we elect one lor ourselves. To do that, J we must fight. God grant to avert the threat- i danger. But while we thus pray, we urge our people to look the matter full in the ■ face and prepare themselves. As unmeaning t to some as may now seem these red striped coats and waving plumes seen occasionally up on our streets, it is well enough to have good guns and plenty of ammunition." From the New York F.xpress. We also received the following important private letter from one of the most intelligent and patriotic Union men in the State of Geor- j gia. The writer is no fire-eater, no fanatic, 1 no disunionist, or but he records the sentiment of his city and State in regard lo one who originated "the irrepressible Conflict," and who has declared that "he hates Slavery as much as any Abolitionist," and who has said "the Republican standard must not be lower ed a hair's breadth !" SAVANNAH, Ga., Oct. 13, 1860. Mj Dear Sir.—What I write for the papers is too apt to be set down to a desire lor politi cal effect, and, therefore, I drop you this pri vate note that vou may know the real condition of things at the South. The result in Pennsylvania has electrified this whole section ot the 1 nion. The friends of an independent confederacy are jubilant, while the news has fallen as a Pall of Death on us, who through every trial, have stood by the work of our fathers and hoped for an era of peace. Ido not even yet despair, but our friends, almost unanimously,are'firm injtheir con viction that the election of Lincoln is no longer a problem. What is to come after it, God on ly knows : the idea of peace is utterly prepos terous. The more conservative men in the South are now for setting our houses in order, for calamity, in some form, is obliged to come upon the country, should a sectional govern ment be placed over us. We—the Union men of the South—have heretofore fought gallant ly and with success; but r.ow our arms are stricken down and our hands tied. My honest WHOM; KI iirer, 292' i. VOL. 4. NO. is. I conviction :s, before God, Ibat the election of Lincoln will not be submitted to by a majority of the Southern States, and such will be the for) ot excitement that is sure to follow the an nouncement ol such an event, that all the con servatism of the South will be but as a leather before the storm. The North now has the hopes and the destiny of the country in its hands. May we not hope that the unpropi tious result of the late elections will fire the pa triotic men of the North to some powerful and unusual effort to stem the tide of anti-slavery fanaticism, and save the Union from the disas ter that so imminently threatens it 1 I hope so, and just here is our only trust. Do not place it in the power of even a minority at the South to involve us ail in one common trouble : for I tell you. come what may, right or wrong, wise or foolish, a collision between the people of the South on the issue "of sustaining or making wai upon a Black Republican gov ernment will never take placy. The North may rely on this. I have never before felt so downcast and de sponding with regard to political affairs, and I write you this hasty note lor your own private information, and with the hope that you will present the issue to your people in its true light. Oh, that they could only know, and in time, the real sentiments of their Southern brethren on this momentous question ! 1 am very truly yourr, Hon. Erastus Brooks, New York. WORDS 0I JACKSON, The following is an extract from the fare well address of Andrew Jackson words fitly spoken, and worthy of the consideration of every citizen at the present time:) The citizens of every State should studiously avoid pverthing calculated to wound the sensibility or offend the just pride ol the peo ple of other States; and they should frown upon any proceedings within their own borders likely to disturb the tranquility'of their politi cal brethren in other portions of the Union.— In a country so extensive as the United States, and with pursuits so varied, the internal regula tions of the several States must frequently differ from one another in important particulars; and the difference is unavoidably increased by the varying principles upon which the Ameri can colonies were originally planted ; principles which had taken deep root in their social rela tions before the Revolution, and therefore, of necessity, influencing their policy since they became free and independent States. But each State has the unquestionable right to regulate its own internal concerns according to its own pleasure ; and while it does not interfere with the rights of the people of otber States or the rights of the Union, every State must be the sole judge of the measures proper to secure the safety of its citizens and promote their happiness ; and all efforts on part of the people of other States fo cast odium upon their institutions, and all measures calculated to dis turb their rignts or ;propnt_r, or t put in jeopardy their peace and internal tranquility, are in direct opposition to the spirit in which the Union was formed, and must endanger its safety. Motives of philanthropy may be as signed for this unwarantable interference ; and such men may persuade themselves for a mo ment that they are !aborii% in the cause ot i humanity, and asserting the righ's of the human race ; but every one, upon sober reflection, will see that nothing but mischief can come from their improper assaults upon the feelings and rights of others. Rest assured, that the men i found busy in this work of discord are not i worthy of your confidence, and deserve your I strongest reprobation. THE REASON WHY. "We are for Douglas," savs the Missouri Re publica.., "because we like the man. We are tor him because he is a Union man. We are for him because he lias never breathed a senti ment hostile to the interests of the South, or of the slaveholding States. We are for him be cause he has done more for the South, and the ; whole country, than any statesmen now living | We are tor him because he lias the talent, the ; independence, the will to assert his opinions in i eve rv State, town and village of the Union, and : unlike Mr. Breckinridge, will answer any ques tion put to him. We are for him because all the corrupt, worn out and dying politicians are against him, and because his election will bring into political life the young, the ardent, the talented, the brilliant men of the country, hith | erto kept in check by the thumb screws of old J fogy partisans, arrogating to themsplves the right to dictate the political issues before the country. Douglas is just the man to lead such a party, and we do not intend to advocate any other man in this election.
