If 'be spectacle of a wniat soul, strup
glinpr heroically With the waves of ad
versity, is pleasing to the gods, the spec
tacle of a great people transfixed with
the arrows of misfortune, and bleeding
at every r pore, yet tittering uo exclama
tions of anguish or of anget and neither
losing faith in Heaven, nor in its own up
rightness is truly sublime. Such an ex
t hibition, grand and effective to ail minds
which can appreciate moral greatness
the South now presents. If the preccp
tions of their enemies were not complete
ly blinded by party p issions, they would
feel more reverence for the South in its
misfortunes, than when at trio summit of
its prosperity, it guided and controlled
the destinies of this great nation. With
communities, as with individuals, it is
only the fires of adversity that reveal the
true character, and prove whether it is
made of gold or dross. To such an or
deal has the Son’ll been subjected, and
we assert that the result has demonstra
ted that it is an essentially great peo
ple and will he remembered and admi.ed
in history as much for the serene forti
tude and noble dignity with which it has
sustained the direct calamities us for its
brilliant statesmanship in the period of
its power • rid influence, and for that
magnificent valor in ha tie which has ex
t- rted the admiring acclamations of the
What this South was in the days of
her former greatness we] all know. It
was she who gave to the world its “one
Washingti n,” the man raised up by
Heaven for the achievement of American
Independence ; the man whose wonder
ful energies and capacity combined with
the most spotless purity of purpose nd
of character were the principal agency
in the successful conduct of the American
Revolution and the triumphant, establish
ment of the reatest Republic of modern
times. It was her Jefferson who wrote
the Declaration of Independence ; her
Patrick Henry whose eloquent voice
thrilled like a clarion blast the hearts of
a struggling people ; her Madison who
illuminated with his wisdom the true
principles of the American Constitution,
and her Marshall who remai s to this day
the unapproachable glory of American
jurisprudence. The sagacity of her
, statesmen in the national councils con
ducted the United States on a career of
progress and prosperity unexampled in
the records of nations, and the splendid
genius of her soldiers in the field crowned
with immortal chaplets our military re
nown, It was her Winfield Scott, An
diew Jackson and Zachary Taylor, who,
from the snows of Canada, to the tropic
sands of Mexico, gave to the world ex
hibitions of the superior martial skill and
prowess of our countrymen to foreign
enemies which it had ever seen, and it
was the consummate statesmanship and
all embracing patriotism of her Henry
Clay, which three times saved the Union
he loved so well from the perds of divis
ion and civil war. Th se, the fathers of
American greatness, were children of the
sunny South, of the great and glorious
mother, at whose breast they were nurs
ed, on whose hip they first stood erect,
from whose lips they first learned those
lessons of patriotism, viitue and valor
which made their country great among
the nations and their names immortal
Nor has the South contributed less to
the material than to the political and
military importance of the nation. The
vast domain of the terming and p oduc
tive West was given by the South to
the American Union. It is no fi ure of
speech hut the literal truth she has been
the Mother not only of Statesmen, but of
States, and those States the most fertile
and destined to become the most popu
lous and powerful of the Ar erican com
monwealth. The wonderful variety and
extent of the peculiar productions of her
own of cotton rice, tobacco, and
nsfv-.j st res, have laid the foundations of
American commerce and contributed by
far the greater part of the revenues of
the uMtiisis Strip from .American pro
. and wealth the elements which the
i-viuth )>as contributed, and what would
-4>naio ? What would have been the
Revolution without Washington ? What
its growth and fortunes but for the gift of
the South to the United States of the
richest portions of its territory, and t e
commercial manufacturing and national
wealth derived from the products of
Southern agricultural industry? De
prived of those accessories to its great
ness, the United States, if it so mnch as
exist'd, wovld be a fourth or fifth rate
power without rank or respect among
AH this glory of the South is past, and
how does the land sit desolate that was
once so radiant with beneficent power!
Stripped of four thousand millions of
property bereaved of tin hundred thou
sand of her children, shut out from the
Union which she did so much to build up
and enrich, she yet maintains a compo
sure and fortitude more marvelous than
her pioudest achievements in the council
and the field. Despoiled of her earthly
possessions, looking hack upon the most
dismal blight that ever came upon the
fortunes of a people, looking forward to
the gathering of sombre clouds thatthret
en her destruction, with earthquakes
rumbling hen ath her feet, and at her
head anguish and despair tugging like
wi'd beast no querulous complain drops
from her lips no frown of indignation or
i patience disturbs her brow; there is
sadness and resignation, but notone ab
ject glance in her heroic eye.
“The Xiobe of nations! there she stands.

The very sepulchers lie tenant less

—Ry the steamship North l’nint, yester
day was received a freight one of the
first, if not the first, that ever came by
steamer through from England to Savan

way-billed direct from Liverpool here.
These.came to Baltimore on the steamer

that the celebrated Fisher Ames, one rs
