Icier (ran: Hon. .1. n. I’oitixcU Bellow-Citizens: My object in addressing to« in this crisis ol our affairs, will scarcely be misunderstood. I am a Carolinian hy birth and principle, and nil I own in the world is vested in lands nnd negroes. 1 have ■ common interest then in the question bor fcre thfc country, and n right to express- my Ttetfs and opinions. 1 should not, lien over, hare departed from my detcrminmicm to abstain from tnkirg par m politics, if I liad ■ot lately enjoyed unusual opportunities oft ly blamed by both .iNi be conduct'and cliarncterot the riTci\ s ended much tr •haarving the — opposition msue at the North to dor institu tions j and if I bad not perceived from the tenor of the speeches ami writings published in the Slate, that tho subject is hot fully un derstood in-South CtwoVma. These speeches and writings have tended to irritate the feel ings ol some, and to alarm the fears of others, il Texas voluntarily chooses to compound n doubtlul title utid to accept tho oiler made her, surely there is- no cuuso for calling her hard nuinfs and applying to .such n people utitisive epitbeis. The next subject 'complained of- Js the abolition of'tho slave trade in‘the District of Columbia, and this measure is characterized ns advancing abolition. For inv own part, i think the scones we have so olteu witness ed in Washington, mid so often heard severe- “ 11 *-■ ftlicrn nnd Southorn .. arc to advance aboli-. Won than the passfigo-oflhii^lnw." "f It if,-certainly tube lumonled that the halunC'E'ol' power between (lie slavo nnd free .Status cot/lii not have been maintained in life Senate, We have struggled for it in vain, it is iviih Stales as with individuals—equitl- jfv of strcngili or of fortmio cannot he main- THIS COURIER, among our fellow-citizens of lho North.— j mined by either; lliit this is no legitimate Many, however, among thorn, have regarded j cause of strife or - 1 evolution, And yet we these outbursts of passion without resent ment, and have assembled together in recent meeting! to testify their devotion to the Un ion, ana their Arm determination to main tain the laws of the Country. On niio ill these occasions oil luy passage through i’liil- adelphia, I tvoasolicited to be pro.- out, that J might witness their proceedings, and hear taatimbuy to you that nor folJRv-jcilizcns of Pennaylvnnia were animated with the kindheat feelings towards os, and determine to tee the laws aflecting our property within their State. I resisted the importunities of my numer ous friends there, beenuse 1 did not desire to take part in the proceedings ofnnotlior State. A» a Carolinian, I darned to speak to toy fellow-citizens of Corolinn from my own home among them I did not niali to up- pear to (ebukc the winds and waves of our agitated sea from n distant shore, but icserv- ed my efforts to calm them until my return among you. Burin justice to tho great and good men who assembled at New York, Philadelphia and Boston, to vindicate tho laws and to declaro their Arm determination to maintain them, I feel bound to say, that they wero animated by the purost mid no blest motives, and hnvethroughmu, evinced the'most praise worthy zeal and patriotism. 1 am personally and Intimately acquainted with many of them, and believe that they will maintain to the utmost the sentiments they expressed on thoso occasions. Tho great error, it appears to me, that wo liuve committed, is that we have given ton much eonsequeace to the wicked and designing inon who strivo to produce discord among us •ad to destroy the peace nnd prosperity of the country, that thoy may reveal in the spoils, or elevate themselves to pow er, by pandering to the passion and prejudice of the vilest factions. Depend upon it tlieso men •re moral lepers, despised by the masses ns well os by the enlightened portions of tlio community everywhere. They me power ful for evil 1 know, becauso they arc organi sed and unscrupulous; mid from the period of lh(> first French revolution, when a .small or ganised fa:tion deluged Frnace in blood to the present day, wo all know tlio power ox- ercised by a well organised mid unscrupulous faction of the people, however insignificant in .numbers and character. The admission of California into the Un- -iou as a State, is hono-lly believed mid rep resented to bo the most prominent of our . wrongs, and the adoption of tlml elnui-0 of her Constitution excluding slavery, tlio great est outrage committed upon our rights. 1 .say. nothing of tlio irregularity of .the admis sion ol CuTtfornin, becauso V firmly believe that if tho clausa above alluded to hnd been omitted, the complnint of the constitution be ing violated in the fnct of her admission would havo proceeded from the North rntber than from the South. But I think (Imre is an er ror in tlio enusos assigned for (lie adoption of that clause. Tho exclusion of slavery in Cal ifornia is generally attributed, in tlio South, to tho improper interference of Government, whereas it arose from tlio spon'aneous fcol- ings of the people there. Tlio missisou of Mr. Butlor King, whatever were the instruc tions ho bore, w ns of no qse whatever. There, ns everywhere in this country, tlio people would nave revolted at the uncalled for in terference of the General Government. 1 have seen nnd conversed with returned •migrants from that State—sonio successful boyond their most sanguine expectations, whilo others wero disappointed and poor—- na poor, i me told that tlio remedy of (heat evils is to lie sougnt for in revolution ; for what is so cession bn revolution ? U the right of se cession to be found in tho Constitution ?. It existed, I grant under tlio old Confederacy, lor that was a l.o.iguo ; but the Constitution was limned and mlopied, lifer solemn delib eration, to tbi'in a more ported union of the Siolt-s. Tho lirst timo wo over beard of tlio right of secession was during tlio proceedings of tbe Hartford Convention, and at that peri od no people roccivcd tlio doctrine with iiioro indignation and contempt than our- selves. Intact if any .Slate possessed the power to secede from tl.o Union whenever il thought proper I'd do m, our Constitution would boa moikory, nnd unr boastedslicngth as a great and powerful nation, would be dos- pised by Rroign powers. It is true if Vir ginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi nnd Toxns, wero to form a Confederacy uiid agree to secede, there might lie no opposition for u time. But muiiy of those Stales form but tlio en trance and portico to tlio great edifice roared in the West. How long would tlio inhabi tants of tlio mighty structure ciiduto the privations they must sutler, if their ingress wero in tlio lianas of foreigners ? Would they permit Louisiana to bo ilia ally of some maratime power, that might occupy New Orleans, und hart ass tl.c internal c mime ce of the Mississippi valley ? 1 think nut. No lino can bo drawn that will not involve questions uf humidiiry mid right, only to lie so’tllcd'by the iSSf appeal ; and this country would soon exhibit the miserable aspect of tlio Spanish American Stales Besides, such a Confederacy would picscut no burner against the attack- of the Abolitionists of nil tiic . world. Tim sympathies of civilized Europe me against our institutions, and if tliov be not protected by the Constitution uud tlio much despised Union, our slaves would not be worth ten yc irs |U: chase. In such a Confederacy, how many causes of discontent would occur? How would we, with our habits of eternal agitation, bo satis lied with our station in it f Our relutive importance in tlio Sonlliern Confederacy would diminish every year unloss wo could change our habits altogether, nnd instead of devotingull our energies to political a 0 t.atio as w e have done for tlio last twenty years, turi) our minds to tlio promotion ol commerce, munuliicttires and easy communications by land and water from the interior to the Const. But, under the lend of .South Car olina such a Confederacy will never be form ed. Wo me unfortunately not renow ned lor our wisdom or prudence, nnd our taunts will 1)0 nliltu in vain to drivo our sister States in to measures of violence for the pust. What the future may bring tortli, time will show. But I warn the Northern men, who love their c’otmfry, and dcsiro to preserve (lie Union, that they most restrain their own ngitatois ; men, w hom my nivn sclf-rcspct prevents mo from characterising ns they deserve; mini, who are not families but political demagogues of the worst description, Using their money and abusing their talents to deceive nnd so- duco tlio people, nnd who would not liosi- inlo to ol ovale lliomselvcs to powor overllio rocking ruins of their country. The apposi tion commenced under my own eyes, to the iitftmous machinations of these men must be THURSDAY MORNING, DEO. 12,1850. ,l Should Congress at an// time exhibit its purpose to war upon our property,, or withhold our just constitutional rights, we standready to vindicate thosorighls, in the Union as.iong as possible, and out oft he Union when wt-sre left np other altern/iiivc." lion.

He takes tv fair view of the whole question; gives each fact its due weight, nnd arives at just.conclusions, evi dencing neither malice towards the North nor an im proper leaning towards the South and Southern insti tutions No unprejudiced mind can attribute to him any but the purest and most patriotic motives; he has no ambition to gratify—no lust for office—nothing to prompt him in this matter but the love of country.

So it ill Carolina. . The Legislature of this State ianow In session, and ach member is striving to show himself more South ern than tho South itself. Various propositions have been submitted,—some are in favor of the ofLpiing of the Nashville accouchment, a Southern Congress— some for secession—some for non-intercourse, and one fallow is for not being represented in Congress atoll. VVImt they will do is very uncertain.

On the other side oro to be found a gang of political demagogues, bankrupt in princi le, destitute of political integrity or moral worth, and whose only hopo of notoriety is to be found in the depths of infamy to which they may be able to preci pitate themselves.

We neglected last week to call tKfr atten tion of our renders to tho advertisliutsnl of Leonard Scott & Co., 79 Fultpn’-st., New York, who still continue the re-publication of four of the leuding Biiti»h Quarterly Re views, nnd Bluckwood’s Magazine. They have also commenced the publication of an Agricultural work entitled the “Farmer’s Guide to Scientific nnd Practical Agricul ture.” • \ It is useless for us to say one word in vor of the above works, ns- they have attain-' ed to n character in the literary world, which is sufficient commend uiotv. They ore the exponents of thediflerent pnrtios in England, nnd are indispensable to those who would keep pace with the political history of that country. Tho literature is of a higher and purer order than is generrully found in any other periodicals. The Farmers Guide will he a valuable' publication*, and persons en gaged in Agricultural pursuits, would, we think, be benefited- by subscribing for it.— For terms, &c., see advertisement in another column. In view or Oils-tttaitiKm of Un people fn the fre • States, it beeonU't the duty of gooit men nv tk^Bouih to be cautious whir.lt porty they aid by their conduct To excite and ngit. te th» Southern mind by violent appeals to'Sceriofied JSWRidices, and array the nuts of a mob fn Boston or any whe e else as nn evidence that the whole Northern mind is unsound upon the ques tions t.ow before the country, is not only unfair, but unwi-e. Tt is unfair, because it is not tiue. It is un wise, because, in the language ofn dittingu shed states man of South Carolina, " it gives too much conse quence to the wicked and designing men, who strive to produce discord among u», nnd to destroy the peace and prosperity ofthe country, that they may re vel on thu spoils or elevate themselves to power by pandering to the passions anti prejudices of the vilest faction*.” With th.:nta great nnd paramount object is \tr be considered nnd spoken of by us ns the truk ex ponents of Northern opinion, and every Southern tn rn nnd press, that by nn untrue .-taiement of facts, lielj s to keep up this delusion, ts g.viog aid and comfort to our enemies, unwillingly itmny be, but none the less effectually. If on the other h md we would speak of them, nnd regard them as they are, a lawless band of desperadoes, vagabonds and fee negroes, " moral lepers, despised by the masses, as well n< by the cn lightened portions of ih' community every where,” they would soon dwindle into cotnpnrathq^insi 4 nifi- esnee, and the contempt they so richly in rit from good men ol all parties every where, would be tneeted out to them. Lot uh look the facts then fairly in the face, and deceive neither our. ehes nor others Lei u- not be frightened out of our wit* because in Boston where there are hundreds of th'im&ods of people a mob of a w hundred attempt to ob.i ruct the enforcement of a law* It is the extremity of folly to he *o bndly scared fion* so small a c >use. And if indeed, we under nt** the str ngtli nnd importance of his gang, there fa still greater reason why weshou'd be careful lest we err n this matter. If we take part in the contest at all, nnd if our conduct can b* con-trued favorably to cither side, fat it be for th it side which is mo t favorably in clined toward us Let us not tell our friend- that ih y are powerless for good—that they are in tho minority, and are doomed to defeat and overthrow l»u> let us accurate them, nnd commend io th • favor of thu peo- uch men os have recently met in New Yo k.

California was peopled with unexttmplSd rapidity, and the emigrants were from among our most industrious nnd enterprising citizens. They were neither few in number nor dis qualified in character to frame u Constitution . for themselves; ihdeed, their atderly.conduct, while abandoned hy their legitimate govern ment, wns dwelt upon with pride by us, nnd excited the admiration of the civilized world We mVy complain w ilh some justice of the admission of California wilh the exclusion of slavery, hut if wo had depopulated South Carolina of our negroes and taken them to California, I firmly believe that they would have been expelled from the State ut tin; '’ - first meeting of its Legislature, fi t I know full well that tho pe >p!e there w ere dolcruiin-1 1$ appointment of Senator may be conic ,, j ,i' on soiub one whose heart uiid hand, nnd voice, ed not to admit ll.e.u.
