03* We would direct the attention of our reader*
to the following communication of William Mason,
which we copy from the Macon Telegraph. ft ex
hibits, ia a masterly and pungent style, the real ma
ttes of thooe who bare recently prored recreant to
the cause of the South. It shoan ap Mr. Cobb, ft*
Southern Right* Ticket
HON. CHARLES DOUGHERTY,
HON. WILSON LUMPKIN,
CAPT. ISAAC S. VINCENT,
COL. JOHN H. LOWE.
TH* CLAY COMf«OI»t«I.
What is it T If the people of Georgia would at-
tentively, calmly and eerionsly consider it, there
coold be but one answer. Mr. Clay, who is the
avowed enemy of slavery, conceived it mad carried it
throngb Congress. He controlled some Southern
Whigs—Benton some Southern Democrats. A
portion of these men were deluded—others saw in
it, and embraced it, as a lever, which was to ele
vate them to National power and place. Bat we
repeat the question—what is this Clay Compro
mise J In violation ol the Constitution and Laws,
it has~~exeluded Southern men from California,
which contains within her bowels more gold than
can be found in the whole world besides. But for
this tyrannical prohibition, thousand* ol Soutliern
men, with their slaves, would before this, have
been in California digging up the precious metal,
wfitch would have been sent home to circulate
among ms and ewell the volume of our mete lie
currency. The cotton caop, short as it is, might
have been diminished 50 per cent, and the price of
that article would, in all probability, have been
higher than ever before known. But the North
determined that she would eeize upon the whole
eowHff=-g«Id, silver, and all—and we crouching
slaves, are bidden to hold our peace and submit.
One third pert of Tests, which sooner or Jater
would have been formed into three or more slave
States, has been wrested from her, and delivered
op to free-soilism. The South has been deoied
any ehara in the territories of Utah and New Mex
ico. In truth, after doing all the fighting, and en
during all the hardships and privation in conquering
the territory, we have not gained one acre of it—
we cannot call one inch our own. Our Northern
masters possess the whole, end we are urged and
entreated to submit. Slavery ie virtually abol.
isbed in the District of Columbia—for certainly
Northern principles." No man, who has bestow-
ed the slightest attention upon current events, will
deny that Mr. Cobb never could have been elect
ed Speaker, had be not voted tor the Oregon bill.
He refused to sign the Southern Address, which, it i
seems to as, no man, with a true South -rn heart,
coaid object to, for tear of giving eflence to the an
ti-ala very Democrats. Forthis be was rewarded,
in being elected plurality Speaker. But this, it sp-
pears, is not sufficient to satisfy the cravings of the
young" statesman. His ** advent"’ to the Presi
dency is made sore by advocating Clay’s Compro
mise, which was intended to annibilste, at one blow,
all that is valuable and dear to the Sooth.
Now, this fanciful conceit of the Presidency,
rves only to elicit a smile from those who are
ore competent than ourselves, to fathom Mr.
Cobb’s iatellectnal depths. They regard it
out-pooring of a degraded subserviency, or the
phantasm of a distempered dotage. For oar part,
we iorline to the belief, that the Organ, like Haro-
let’e players, merely spoke the speerb as it was com
manded to it.
It will be perceived that William Mason also
pours some heavy broadsides into '* Hamilcar
Toombs. This gentleman, three months ago/wai
about to swear his children to eternal hatred to
the North, and every body and tver^ thing connect-
ed with it, but all of a sudden he becomes “as gen
tle as a sucking dove.” It would appear that hii
envy was aroused by Mr. Cobb's success, and be
determined if possible, to go ahead in catering to the
Northern lust for dominion. Presto, change, is now
the watchword of Southern politicians, and the poor,
doomed South, prostrate and bleeding, is to be aban
doned—aye, trampled upon, by those in whom she
once fondly and confidingly put her trust.
Bat we will detain our readers no longer from
the rich and spicy repast which awaits them, in
the subjoined communication :
From the Macon Telegraph.
" Not that I loved Cxur less, bat that I loved Rome
As, when of old, the candidate for initiation to
the Eteusinian mysteries, stood pale, timid and
tremblingat the threshbold, so does William Mason
approach the snbject of the present paper; for
though he thought himself amply able to cope
lion.” Ido not pretend to aay‘ that
tioo ia act the coaraetbe South should have for-,
marly contended far, but I do amp to «ay, that
it should never have been made an argument fay
a Southern man to favor the" passage of that odi
ous bill; particularly when the case
that, thoagh the argument was Tight in the ab
stract, in this
privetbe South of her rights; non-intervention,
like all other principles, is desirable when it bears
equally upon opposing interests, but when it give#
all to the North or take* all fi
heart, should be at once repudiated by every trne friend
the South. Mr. Cobb s letter was another
table expedient to secure Northern popularity by
advocating Northern interests; but we, too, were
be conciliated, and so Mr. Cobb offers ns the
catch-word, M non-intei
allegiance be owed his constitnenta; giving ns the
shadow for the substance; telling us that the
Clay Compromise guaranteed to ns the ** non-in
tervention of Congress with the slavery, question,
and that we were indebted for its success to ibe
love and interest (*God save the mark!”) of
Northern 'menof iron nervespnd patriotic hearts.’ ”
This position reminds me of a story of the white

“ Do yon take tke buzzard and I’ll take the tur

buzzard; whereupon the Indian said with char
acteristic gravity, and an intnitivb sense of right,
44 Yon no say turkey to me nothne!” And so it
Is that tEe North says to ns.** Do you take non
intervention (as implied in the Omnibus) and
we'll take yonr territorial rights, or well take yonr
territorial rights, and you'll take non-interventiony
but they don’t “ say turkey" to us at all.
Let os return to our subject. Yon say, Mr. Cobb
that there has been no violation of the Constitution,
even then you should have opposed the bill as be
ing adverse to Southern interests; but there has
been a violation of the Constitution. Sir, you

of the several payments, accumulated at
interest, for the number of years which t
may expect to live.
If the insured is at the age of 20, he may ex
pect ,to live 25 or 30years more; and for$18.90
paid every year, the company agree to pay $1000
to the family of the insured, whenever his death
may take place; because, $1000 is the accumulat
ed value, at compound interest, of the several pay
ments of $18.90 continued lor the 25 or 30 years
which the insured will probably live. If the party
die, sooner or later, after one payment, or alter fifty,
the company pay $1000 to the surviving family.
If the insured is aged 22, he pays 820 eveiy year.
If five persons at this age should insure for $1000,
and live 10,20, 30, 40, or 50 years, the first would
pay $200, the second 8400, the third $600, the
fourth 8800, and the fifth $1000; but the hei
each would receive from the company the same
amount, viz: the $1000 insured. Iu a mutual
company, when the profits are applied to npon the
payments, the whole $20 would not be required
every year. So that for a less sum than $20 paid

plaints, for which it has been recommended, viz :-
Coughs, Colds, Influenza, Bronchitis, Asthma, and
Consumption in its incipient stages. No other
medicines has proved more efficacious.
Various remedies, it is true, have been offered
and puffed into notice for the cure of diseases of
the lungs; and some have been found no doobt
very nseful; but ol all that have yet been discove

the most unimportant of all, than in the South at
the arrow will fall blunted and harmless. Before
setting out, however, let me be understood; I
have the utmost respect and admiration for Mr.
Cobb in Ids character of an amiable and worthy
gentleman, bearing very nearly the sams relation
to him, aa the man who said to his friend, W I
love yon but d—n your principles !**
commence wi th Mr. Cobb at the tame
epoch aa we did with bis beloved u confreres,”
Messrs. Orestes Stephens and Pylades Toombs—
irted that the South has secured the the year 1848; for at that time he'first proved
u.11 v— a .l ■ f K j M to , he g oat j lt | urei j the golden apples of
availability; it was the year in which the glori-
champion, Mr, Stephens, so valiently slaugh
tered the Clayton Compromise; it was the year in
which 44 Hamilcar” Toombs broke down the effort
to establish a Southern Press; it was the year in
which Howell Cobb refused to sign the Southern
Address,and John C. Calhoun surprised and mor
tified, said to hia friends, 44 Mr. Cobb, of Georgia,
longer with ns.” In thatrefnsal was opened
the door to Southern defection, and you, Mr. Cobb,
accomplished in this, the faint glimmer of yonr
ulterior designs, the first break In the Southern
Delegation; you truckled to the North and then,
by a course of specious reasoning, endeavored t»
gild the bare mclal of the transaction, knowing at
that very time, that yonr object was the speaker-
ihipof the House, and that this step was a neces
sary one to obtain the support of the free soil mem
bers. It was a momentous season for you, and
fortunate; at tbe time of your detection from our
interests, the firm ol Stephens and Toombs, angry
and disappointed at the loss of their expected plun
der, bad dissolved partnership with the Northern
party ; and though yon had all changed positions
and were still opposed, they threw away their
Totes, not liking you, but preferring you. perhaps,
to Mr. Winthrop, one of their late abolition friends,
and whom Mr. Stephens bad indeed formerly
nominated in cancns; had it not been forthis, Mr.
Winthrop would have been elected; as it was,
yon were tbe fortnnate one.
Thus was yonr object accomplished—you gain
ed the speakership and then entered your mind
tbe idea'of snatching the tempting bait of the nomi-
for President or Vice President in 1852,
nnected with this idea the intention of
... __ Free-Soil vote. Thuz it happened, that,
Ia appointing committees for the House, you found
room oq every possible occasion for the Abolition
and Tree-Soil membeni; and the policy of this

A TaUsds Nature.—A cob of Ictiian
corn, which in size and shape exactly
resembles the human hand, has been
brought to our office. The four fingers
and thorob are distinctly , marked.—•
The thumb alone is a little defective,
being larger in proportion than the thumb
of the human band, but in all other re
spects the resemblance is perfect. The
fingers are delicately furmed, and the
whole presents the counterpart of a fine
female hand. This curious object grew
upon the farm of David Clarke, of
Dariby, Tompkins county. The owner
was in the act'ofiaking it to a friend ol
his, who he said was jrum» a hand,
when tbe person who exhibited it to us
obtained possession of it. The corn
having been boiled off, the cob now
remains an object of great curiosity.—

necessary, answered. There can be no peculation,
speculation, or fraud in this business, as ths. law
prohibits old debts, mortgager, sales,or any other
claims, from, touching.or recovering out of them
till they are issued and held by the owner. A fe
licitous provision! Whan these bounties are re
ceived by the soldier, I will, (ii he wishes it done,)
locate it for him on the most fertile public lands, as
I shall then be in possession (as I am now) of the
most satisfactory information with regard to these
lands. The soldiers should not be too sanguine o(
a speedy realization of this long deserved boon, aa
there are between two and three hundred thousand
boonties to be issued; it requires time trouble and
labor to collect the testimony, to examine and ap
probate it, and no less to issue the bounties. But
the mi»st important steps in this business are early
selection of an intelligent an experienced Agent, bis
early collection of the testimony, and ita speedy
presentation to the Secretary of the Interior, as he
will issue the bounties seriatim—first applied for,
first issued—as the Mexican bounties were; also,
tbe testimony will oceasionally.be rejected, mod re

claims. And now, permit me, my old feUow-offi-
