The following letter wrw addressed by Judge Douglas to the editors of the AflkuX, Memphis, Tcnn. ? Washington, Feb. 2, 1861. I have this moment read with amazement an editorial In your paper of the SOtb ult., In which you assume that 1 am "favoring the immediate withdrawal of the remain ing States from the confederacy, as a peace measure, to avert the horrors of civil war and with the view of reconstruction on a constitutional bvls.'' I inaplire you by all those kind relations which have so long existed between us, and which I still cherish with so nn ch and gratitude, to do me the jus tice promptly to correct tho unaccountable error Into which you have been led. In regard to secession, whether viewed as a goverMsental theory or as a mat ter of political exjiediency, I have never bad but one opinion, nor uttered but one language?that of un qualified opposition. Nothing can bo so fatal to tne peace of the country, rq destructive of tho Union, and of all hopes of reconstruction, as the secession of Tonn-ifweo nr.d tne border States under existing circumstances. You must rr member that there are Jisunio- lata among the party leaders a' the North as well as at the South? men whoce hostility to slavery is stronger than the>i> fidelity to the constitution, and who believe that the dis ruption of the Mos would draw alter it, as an inevit able cor sequence, civil war, servile Insurrection an t flrully the utter extermination of slavery in all the Southern States. They are bold, daring, determined men; and1 believing, as they do, that the constitution of the United States is the great bulwark of slavery ou this continent, and that the disruption of tho American Union involves the inevitable destruction of laveiy, an I is an indispensable necessity to the a ta.umoui of that end, they are determined to accomplish ih-jir para mount object by any means withiu their uowor. For these reasons the Northern disunioni'ts, like tho dis union's of the South, are violently opposed to all com promises or constitutional amendments, or efforts at cm ciliation, Whereby peace should be restored and the ( Hum preserved. They are striving to break up th>? Union under the pretence of unbounded devotion toil They are struggling to overthrow th* constitution while pro fessing undying attachment to it, unl a wi'lingn-re to make any sacrifice to maintain it. They are trying to plunge the ceuntry into civil war as tho surest means of destroying the Union, upon the plea of enforcing the laws and protecting the public property. If they can defeat cve(j> kind or adjustment or compromise by which the points at issue may be saiisractonly settled, and keep up the irritation, so as to induce the border States to follow I the cotton States, they will feel certain of the accomplish ment of their ultimate designs. Nothing will gratf'y them so much, or contribute so effectually to their success, as the secession of Tennessee and the border States. Every State that withdraws from the Union increases the relative power of Northern abo litionists to defeat a satisfactory adjustment, ai l to j bring on a war which NMf or later Mat end iu tirial gejiariition and recognition of tho independence of '.wo | contending sections. If, on the contrary, Tennefieoe, North Carolina and the l>order Slates will remain in 'be Union, and will unite with the conservative and Union loving men of all pirties in the North in the adoptier. of such a compromise as will be alike honorable, sife and just to tlis people of all the si?t, |j( peace and fral?rnal fei ling will so? ii return and the cotton States come lut-A, and the Union be tendered perpetual. l'ardon the repe tition, but it cannot bn too str> u ;ly impress, d upon all who love our country that sonopciim aru war will be tho destru tu n not only of :he preeeut I uiou, but will blast all hopes of reconstruction tipra a roustitntieBnl basis. I trust you will on mo the justioo to publish this noto in your next tsau". S. A. DOUG MS, ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMER JOSEPH WRIT NEY?fULL DbTAlLS UF HER TIM*.

The follow rng is the portion which treats of ?h0 reUtiona of Texas to the fe deral government and '.othe other States: Tie peculUr a tilt u/,3 <Jf our relations with the federal government will, I '.rust, command the earnest attention of tbe 1 e>. is^i urn. y\ hila the proud structure of govern ment built oy v jt fathers, seems tottering to ruin, an<l F( me 01 its pi'V'irg ue alreany tern loose by tbe hand of internal ilvv.-nsion. we miy not alone contemplate the f*-vne and await Us total downfall. As part yet of that eti iictur?L the solemn duty presses upon as to prove faith ful to the trust imposed by tho put riots and sages of the r ast, and to restore It to Its original pride and gruiidr iir ir we can ; tuid 11' we cannot to see that our own libet '.its perish not beneath its ruins. Ibe election of the bl >ck republican candidate to the IVtstdoLcj bag involved ibe issue of the permanency of the g> vertraeni u|>on the busts laid down by fts founders. The principles of iht ir party, as developed In the p i-*sage ol laws in many of the States subversive of our rights and in cor.tlmia aggressions upon our institutions, have at lust obtained a foothold on the government itself. The struggle b is been long and the encrsaclunont gradual, ami at last, lhtougb our own folly and dissension alone, ba<i resulted in placing one department of the government in the batiits of those who have a^gresoed tvpon us. Tbe question pi 1 sres itself upon our consideration whether it is hekt to abandon tbe go\prnment and aokrowledge that our (cmi itution is a failure, or to maintain every consti t itionul right guaranteed to ua. Tho gi levanc s of wuicb wo complain have thus far originated wiib tbe Stutes, and not with tbe federal gcrverrmen'. They b-ive, disregarding their coosM* tional obligations, interposed to obstruct tho federal (overt meiit in its efforts to administer the govern 11.' >it in ucci rdance with tbe constitution; and though the n'.\'TMneni hns not in all oases been successful in its > floj is In our behalf, yot tbere b-ts been no lack of wdlii gi ess or its part. The prospect, however, of the government going into the hands of a paity whose itis tegitrd <d the constitution is Its sole band of union, leads to 1 he belief that fedt 1 al aggression is inevitable, unless such Breuns are adopted as will not only restrain the d< mlnant paity wKhin tho bounds of tho constitution, but lead it to abandon all designs of perverting the powers of gcvernnunt to serve its unconstitutional aims. Wore governments formad in an hour, and humau liberty the natural 1 rsuit of revolution, less responsibility would attM% to us as we consider tho momentous ques tion before us. A I' ng struggle amid bloodshed and pri vation secured the liberty which has been our boast for three tp.arteis of a Century. Wisdom, patriotism and the noble concessions of great minds framed our constitu tion. Long centuries of heroic strife attest the progross ol l'roi d?ni to this culminating point. F>e the work of centurii u is undone, and freedom, shorn of her victorious garmt nui. is started ou! onco again on her weary pilgrim age, hcpir.g to ilnil, al tor centuries have passed away, anoilier dwelling place, it Is not unmanly to piuso and at least ci deuvor to avert the calamity. Tbe Executive Ice."- as i.ecply as any of your honorable bod) the necessity for such action en tho part of tho sUvcbolduig >'tales as will soiuroto the fullest extent every right they possess. Self-preservation, if not a manly live oi liberty, inspired by our past history, prompt tins determination. But becantmtfcol thattbeso dictate batty and uncoucerted action, nor can ho recon cile to his mind tbe idea that our safety demands an im mediate separation from the government ere we havo stated our grievances or demanded redress. A high re solve to miintiiin our constitutional rights, and failiog to obia n tbem, to risk the perils of revolution, even as our lathers risked them, should in my opinion actuate every citizen of Texas; but we should remember that wo owo duties arid obligations to States having rights in common with us, ard whose InetitutKi'ir are the same as ours. No i.ggrrsalon can cme upon us which will not be visited 1 pon thrm, and whatever our action may be, it should be ol that rbaiacl' r which will bear us bltmeless to posterity shouM the step bo fatal to the interests of those States. ,W0Til>g ,un c,^t!on of Mo*r? r.lncoln and In n I'll. 2 h3io' ," v'.yo1 h;l4 ??'??

Referred to the Committee oo Judiciary. A revolution that any ordinance withdrawing Uiifi State from the Union, shall be referred to the people lor ratification, was laid ?>n tho table. ?un the ground that the Committee on Federal Relations Bad already reported joint insolations embracing such reference to the popular vote; fully recognising the. Convention that is to meet on Monday, an'l giving ltd members the aamo miletge per diem us to the legislators. This report and Its resolu tions are the tpecial order of the (lay for to morrow, at eleven A. II. A Mil from the Senate was taken up in tho House, di recting Mr. jobns, the Comptroller, to pruoeed imme diately to Washington city to procure all money that may be due to this State, ;.nd bring It home, to be deposited in the Plate Treasury, was i>a?iOfl finally, by suspension ol' rules. The amount is about (180,000. A bill for frontier protection was introduced and re fernd to the Committee on Military Affairs. In the Semite a bill ha* been introduced by Mr. Throck morton, providing for aConvention of the people's dele gates, another, by Mr. Herbert, recognizing the conven tion of the 2Xth Inst.; another, by Mr. Uritton, provides for the election by the Legislature, of three commission era to attend the Convention projtosed by Alabama and South Carolina at Montgomery, Ala , all of which are be fore the Committee on State Affairs. HI It is admitted on all hands that the legislature u iu favor of Immediate secession by a majority 01 throe to one, and thcro is no doubt the bills pending for giving the sanction of the State government to the Convention thut nu ts on Monday, will be passed with very little op position, except from the.Govornor, and will be easily passed over his head. VOTE Kt)R THE CONVENTION. The aggregate vote of forty three counties fcr tbo Toxns State Convention is 10.198. Tho samo counties gave 32.667 votes at the Presidential election. The falling oil is thought to be due to the (act that the action of the Convection Is to be submitted to the decision of the people. In the Galveston Chilian of the 25th wit., we find the following news from the Northern frontier:? The Weatherord jV<ui contains tho following Items of Indian news:?A party ?f 111ty two Indians surprised a enmp of twelve boiTalo henters, at Bound Tiinbor, on the Brazos river, on Tuesday, January 3. and took their horses. The men, being so far outnumbered, made no rt pittance whatever, but made their way to Captain Hops' camp on foot as speedily as possible. ThSJ did not know to what tribe the Indians belonged, neither could thoy t(U in what direetiou they were travelling. Captain Rogers, of Kllis county, who went out some time tince to the Indlun region with a company, having concluded to return homo, on reaching Weatnerford and learning of his appointment by Governor Houston to raisn seventy men, determined to accept the appointment, and at onct enlisted some twenty men and sent them out into Jack < ounty, and Ml on his'way back to Kills to complete his company. '1 he Xewt anticipates good results from the volunteers now gathering on the frontier. It says that active pre parations were m^ide for an expedition against the In dians, to organize at Lost Valley, in Jack county. A number of men htve passed through Woatnerford en route for the place of general rendezvous, and at this time there is encamped near town a company oi lwenty nine lino looking and intelligent men, from Limestone and Freestone counties, well mounted, armed and equipped, on their way thither. The Aews says:?Those who have deserted their homes on the frontier may now safely return to them, as the rangers out will be able to effectu ally protect them. For our part we consider that in two weeks from this time tho frontier will be safer than It has been for two years. GEOBOIA. OCR JIILLJSPtiEVILLE CORRESPONDENCE. MlLLKTHikYlIXK, Feb. 1, 1801.

The Georgia Convention contains a large share of our best talent. Its deliberations are conducted with calm ness and dignity. The signing tho ordinance of secession was marked with seriousness, and many hands were meved by sad hearts to thii important duty. Georgia has been a Union loving State, and nothing but a doep seated conviction of danger to lifo and property, under abolition rule, has driven her to secession. Tho Conven tion consists of three hundred delegates, all of whom "but six have signed the ordinance of so cctsion, and those six have spread >ip..n its minutes u pledge of fealty to the State, so that Georgia is now a unit, and starts upon her new career with the universal acclamations el" her people. The republican papers, in the face of these facta, persist ently mirteod their readers by gross misrepresentations, they vlllify us as mob'icrats, terrorizing at the polls and suppressing the real feelings of the pestle at the lale election.

Order to the Comnrcticut MilUia? Bow it it lUtponded to by the " Wide Awake*' and Oo ' ercicmitti cf Stamford?Only Tm> JCnhst J* For a long time put the ''Wide Awakes" at thia place and many prominent leaders of the republican party have been crying out against the administration for not having courage to execute the taws and coerce the South. About two week* since Captain Heoker, of company E, of this place, received an order from the Governor to till up the ranks of his company by enlistments, &n<l have it ready to march at the shortest notice. In compliance with said order, Captain M., although a strong democrat, went to work at once to till up his company?requiring for fchat purpoao about sixty men. Not only did he use strong personal exertions among all with whom he met, but, in order to give greater pub licity to the matter, he advertised in our paper that he would be at the Town Hall last evening to receive the names of those desirous of enlisting. At the appointed time he was on hand at the hall, where quite u concourse had assembled. After making a neat llttlo si>e?ch, setting fourth the ' t>jectof the meeting, and earnestly culling ujkju those pre sent to hand in their names, in response to the call of the Governor, only two responded to the invitation. And one of these, who came seven or eight miles, supjioMed he was to receive eight dollars per mouth from 'lato, and was greatly disnppointed when alterwards he was told that was not the ?ase. Not a "Wide Awake" made his appear anco for enlist ment nor one of the rabid republicans who havo been d mu>ii g ho unmercifully the present administration. llow does this correspond with the declaration made by Mr. Ferry,a member of the present House from this Congressional district, who seems to have g:>ne over en tirely to tbe abolition istsv In his late speech against the majority report of the Committee of Thirty-three, and against every other honorable measure for the restoration of harmony and (Jnion in our distracted country, in speaking ol New l-'ngland people, he said:?? The impulse which lies deepest iu their hearts is not the miserable fiction miscalled honor, but the living and eternal verity of duty, at whose call they wi'.l, it need be, lay down the implt merits of peace and waik as calmly up to the cannon's mouth as they now do to their daily toil.

This attempt, then, to enlist men to tight against tbe South under existing circumstance^ ought to be a warning to all non-compromising republicans. And before the Hon.

LINCOLN '0 BOMB. The following from the Spnnglleld StaU Journal la ao * Interesting account of a recent Interview between Mr. Lincoln and a Southern gentleman? We had a long conversation a day or two sinoa with V very intelligent gentleman from the South, who conversed freely upon tha subjects that now cccapy tbe minds of all the citizens of this republic. Thia gentleman had called upon Mr. Lincoln, and be sayfl that the idea at "raw head and bloody bone*"?the beast with "Beveto heails and ten horns"?at once passed from his mind. Hf sajs?"Weuld to liod that all of his people o >uld set him! The mere sight of him," said he, "would drive secession out of the heart ol every honest Southerner. It i* tiue," said he, "that if ho were in Washington to day , and talked as frankly and as candidly as he does here, it probably would do no good, for thoae who would see him would not be convinced of their error tha lack of justice in their movements of treason, under any circumstance." This conversation naturally tended to convince ua that an opinion we have long entertained was earrect. Th<J people or the South do not know ua. They are not allowed to read republican papers down there; they learn nnthimg cf the true principles ol the republican party. A large pri (Nirtion of them do not read, while a larger proportion ol them read nothing but secession papers. Wo have am , rious uoubts wh> tber a true edition of the Chicago plat form was ever read by one-tenth of the people of the Southern States, lhey never see an article in tQeir paper* quoted from a republican paper in the North unless It be the breathings of some fanatic; then they diah it oak with all the gravy that they can pile upon it as an expo sition of the principles of the republican party. Anything that meets [treir sight that does retted the true pur poses and principles ol the republican party is at onc<! suppressed. Ihe papers i.h^t contain it are declared in ccndiary, and withheld from circulation, lhis is one of tbe means by which such a state of feeling has been pro* duced in the South, and it only remains for them to ItnoiF the truth, and we fell sure that the revolutionary senti ment that prevails there will soon be quieted. We believe with our Southern friend that any honeak Poutberi er who will but for a moment see and converse with llr. Lincoln, will go home disarmed of all fears of oppression at his hands, mid a'l feeling of secession will, j be at once banished from his heart. TUB CITY OF CAIRO OPPOSED TO BE1TBLICAN ABQ* L1TI0M8TB. The City Council of Cairo, III., has appropriated a largft sum of money for thojiurpose of purchasing arms for tb<T use of the city, to defend itself from becoming, in possi ble emergencies, a republican-abolition camp. It la sail that so great is the indignation of all parties in Souther* Illinois against Governor Yates, on account of his Ut4 coercion message, that were he to go there now his per* son would hardly be sale. THE ANTI-CIVIL WAR. TO T11E EIHTOlt OF THE HERALD. I beg leave to encloso a few extracts tending to r(< move the general but erroneous Impression that tb6 (tamers of the constitution never had in contempla* tion, and, therefore, failed to provide for, the con tin* gency which now exists in our national affairs. Mr. Randolph, in tho foderal.convention which formed the constitution, introduced resolutions in which ws find the following clause:?"And to call forth the foroe of th? Union against any member of the Union failing to fulfil Its duty under the articles thereof." When this clause came up for discussion, Mr. Madisoa} author of a large portion of the "Federalist" and subse quently President of the United States, observed "that the moro he reflected on the use of force, the more h<| doubted the practicability, the justice and the effloaoy of it, when appliod to people collectively and not indl* vidually. A union of the States containing such an in gredient seemed to provide for its own destruc tion. The use of force against a State would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment, and would probably ba considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound, lit hoped such a system would be framed as might render this rcsotTrce unnecessary, and moved that the clause bit positioned," which motion waa agreed to netn. con. (Elliot's Debates, vol. v., pago 140.) The subject coma up subsequently, and after debate in which Mr. Gerry, of Massachusetts, declared " that he was against letting loose the myrmidons of the United States on a State without its own consent," the clause was rejected, not withstanding the protest of Governor Morris, of Now York, that "we lirst form a strongman to protect ua, and at the same timo wish to tie his hands behind him." (Vol. v., page 438.) When the constitution was submitted to the States fo? ratification, Alexander Hamilton, in the New York Con vention, remarked, "It his been observed, to coerc# the States is one of the maddest projects that was ever devised. A failure of compliauce will never be confined to a single State. This being the case, can. we suppose it wise to hazard a civil What n picture does this Idea present to our view. A complying State at wir with a non comp'y iDg SI lite; Congress marching the troops of one Slate into the bosom of an oilier: this St'ito collecting auxiliaries mid foi mmg |* rhaps a mujorltv aramst the lodcral head Here is a nation at war with Itself. C?> any reasoiwblc man be well disposed towards a govern ment whiih mnkis war and carnage th'j only means of puppet ting itself?a government that rau exiBt only by the sword? Kverj mch war must involve the innocent wiih the guilty. This single considaratlou should b? sufficient to dispose every piaceablo citiz-n gainst sucb a government. But tan we believe that one State will even unfit r ittell to be u ed as an instrument of coercion? TLo thing is a dreutn; it if impossible." The attention if our Statu legislators is specially in vited to the coLcluding portion of the remarks of iholr great predeeeeeor. tow rnor LI s*oith, of Conm cticut, who was a proml n< nt member ol the Federal Convention, while explain ing tin pro|x,s< d constitution to the Convention of that Stale which subsequently ratified it, said:?"Hen-e we fee hew nteetsary for lb-' Union Is a coercive force. The only question is, iliali it be a coercion of law or a coercion of arm*? '11kme is no other poeslblo alterna tive. Where will thosy who oppose a coercion of h?r ci uie outv Where will they end? A necessary cjnse iuer.ce of their principles is a war of the States, one ugaiost the ether I am fftr coetcloii by law, that coorcion which acts only upon dedinq1 nt indi riduals.

If wc> should altempt to execute the laws of the I'nion by send ing an ai wed force against a delinquent State, it would involve the- good atin nad, the innocent and guilty, in the raive calamity.'' (Kl.lot's Debate*, vol ii., page 197.) The same sent menl* substantially were uttered by Messrs. I'awes uno Itul'us Kiog, etf Massachusetts, and Mr. McKian, of I'enusylvanla, in the debutes e?n the con - I rt il lit ion: and as late as 1H20. durinfptho Missouri Com | pr< miseagitation, Ihonias Jefferson, in a letter to Mr. ; Hush, in of the idea which he embodiw^ln the l'i duration of ltnl( pendence, nays:?1"We exist, ui) aicquited as standing proof, that a government so tnoe'elled as to test i ontinually on the will of the whelo s<>ciety Is a practicable government."
