Affairs nt the A.uioaal I'npitml.
Washington, Jan. 7.
The Black Republicans are very much
alarmed at the increase of the union senti
ment in the South. With one or two
States out of the Union, leaving the
House and Senate in their hands, they
were perfectly delighted, and actually be
came so overbearing as to render their
presence intolerable. Within the past
few days, however, their tune has chang
ed very much; now it is all aiarm aud
fear lest the Soutli take possession of the
general government, and administer the
affairs of the country upon sound. Consti
tutional democratic principles, restoring
peace, harmony and prosperity to the
country in such a manner, and with men
at the head of the government as would
command the support of every Northern
State, excepting, two or thiee in New
England, who might go out of the L nion
with their abolitionism anil their hungry
horde, with certain advantage to all con
cerned. It is settled beyond all question
of doubt that Lincoln will never be Pres
ident of these United States. The South
cannot, and will not submit to be ruled
by an Abolitionist, no matter how plausi
ble and mild they may profess to be, tlicit
feelings and sentiments are as well under
stood at the South as at the North. A
party wlncti is composed oi men who re
ligiously believe that slavery is not only a
sin hut a crime against the law of God,
can have no half-way compromise ground
to rest upon. To permit tlie government
of these States to pass into the hands of
such men, with its immense patronage and
power, should require a little serious con
sideration, particularly when the people
of this Union, nearly two to one, have
pronounced against it With Lincoln in
the Presidential chair, we should have
nothing but civil war for the next four
years. And surely while the South are
resisting the enforcement of Black Re
publican principles, it cannot he expect
ed that the brave and stalwart Democrats
at the North, who compose the active
and able men, would remain indifferent in
such a conflict. Strange and startling
events will occur here within forty days,
such as no doubt will be approved by ev
ery sincere lover of good government
and sound conservative principles, which
are the only ones by which the affairs of
this Republic can be administered upon,
and restore peace and prosperity through
out the length and breadth of the land.
The Chamber of Commerce of New
York, alarmed at the present state of af
fairs, sent a committee on here last week
composed of two Black Republicans and
one Democrat. The Republicans openly
and publicly stated their regret for hav
ing voted for Lincoln. I am informed
that one of them went so far as to call
Abraham an old scoundrel. Thurlow
Weed is here to-day, full of compromises.
Thurlow is strongly in favor of the Union
as he wants it—that is, he dont want
divided pap. What glorious pi ;king these
gentlemen will have from the granite
hills and cotton factories of New Eng
land, for that is all they will ever have if
our friends in other northern States stand
firm to the good old principles of our par
ty. Depend upon it, tlie South is a unit.
The I'Vmliiiritic* of l*«'liin.
A letter from tlie seat of war, in tlie IHoniteur de
VArmer, states tliat Pekin is built in the form ol a
polygon, its northern portion offering a parallelo-
surrounded by a tnrreted wail, with towers at
short intervals; outside of this wall is a deep ditch,
and beyond this enclosure a circle of suburbs, as
densely peopled, as busy and as compact as is Pe
kin itself. The eapitol of China consists, in tact
of two cities, the North, or Imperial City, and the
Sotuli City 7 . The former is called the City of Tar
tars: and the latter the City of the Chinese. They
are separated by a turreted wall, and communi
cate only by three gates, of which the middle one
is reserved exclusively for the Emperor. 'I he
Tartar City contains the Palaee of tlie “Son of
Heaven,” (the Emperor ) a mass ot buildings cl
every size and shade, pavillions, pagodas and gar
dens, equally extensive and indescribable, which,
it is said, takes a month to go once over.
The population of Pekin audits suburbs ex
ceeds two millions. Sixteen gates communicate
between the suburbs and the two cities within the
walls; on either side of each gate is a party of sol
diers, who act as policemen. The principal streets
especially in the northern portion, are wide and
handsome, but the gieater part ofboth tlie towns,
consists of narrow, dirty, crowded lattes, rendered
yet more disagreeable by th-> numerous hucksters,
traders and cookshops, established on tho narrow
'i lie Chinese are fond of raree-shows, and Pekin
contains many exhibitions of puppets, learned ani- |
ntals, dancers and conjurors, giving the town tin-
aspect of an immense fair. It also contains nu
merous pajodas built of porcelain, painted in the
gaudiest colors, and surmounted by pointed roofs.
As for the carriages of the Pekin grandees, they
are described as resembling boxes ot soap set upon
wheels.” and drawn by oxen harnessed in the
roughest possible fashion. Pekin contains nothing
analagous to tlie handsome public buildings which
adorn the capitals of Europe. Even the imperial
palace shows no attempt at architectural design,
and is, like all Chinese erections, a mete shapeless
agglomeration of walls and roofs.

We find the above in a Republican paper of this
city, (the Times.) as a quotation from one of Lin
coln’s speeches. We have every right, therefore,
to presume it is correct, especially as it was cited,
among other extracts, as a proof of hi* conserva-
tivism. Let us see, for a moment, where this
new and startling doctrine would lend us
According to Mr. Lincoln, the negro voters un
der tho State laws ot Ohio, Massachusetts and
New York, are citizens of the United States. If
so, then he will be bound, as President, to give
them a passport to foreign countries, which will
place them on a par with any white man from the
North or South. In this way Jefferson Davis or
Senator Mason might, find himself some day dining
with one of his own runaway negroes, and that
old tory. Lord Brougham, would probably take the
occasion to remind him of the fact.
But this is not all. If negroes become citizens
of the United States, then, according to the Con
stitution, they are entitled to all the privileges
and immunities of citizens in every State of the
Union. Flence negroes could go South, could
travel in every “slave” Stale, could go where
they pleased, &c., and thus break up every police
regulation which the Southern States now have
for the good order of their society: and Mr. Liu- \
coin, according to this doctrine, believing them j
citizens, would be authorized to nse the army and
navy to prosecute them in those rights! What a
condition would not this place ns in! The idea is
simply ridiculous and it is strange that any man
of sense would, for oue moment, indulge in such
a monstrous eoncepiion. It the northc r u States
can turn every free negro into a citizen of the
United States—if this is the banquet to which the
leader of the “Republican” party invites the
white men of this country—if negroes are to tule
Americans then, indeed, has the spirit of American
liberty fled, and the sooner we all know it the bet

Shocking Muicidc-—An Kiniiirnt Divine
Shoots Himself through the limit.
A sad tragedy occurred last Sunday evening at
the Spencer House, which has cast a gloom over
a large portion of our community. The Rev R
C. Rice, of Eminence, Ixy., one of the most emi
nent and distinguished divines in the State, ended
his life by committing suicide. Dr. Rice arrived
ita this city from Philadelphia on Saturday eve
ning- The clerk of the hotel assigned him a room
to which he immediately repaired. At noon on
Sunday the chambermaid knocked at the door and
requested the occupant to tise. The Doctor came
to the door - and stated he was indisposed, and
would not leave his room. The chambermaid
thought nothing of the matter, and merely said to
him. “You bad better take in yonr boots He re
plied, “Never mind; I’ll not need them.”
Later in the day, and toward evening, the clerk
thought strange at not seeing the Doctor, and ac
cordingly sent a potter to his apartment, in case
he might he too ill to rise from his bed. The por
ter knocked twice, and.not receiving any answer,

body of the unfortunate man lying on the bed.—
An examination showed that he had shot himself
through the head, the hall entering on the left side
and passing almost entirely through. The body
lay on the bed, with the face toward the wall, the
left arm outstretched, with the pistol still tightly
clenched in the hand.
On a table by the side of the bed was a letter
directed to His Honor the Mayor. Mr. Bishop was
sent for, who opened the missive, and found it to
contain these words:
“Please have my poor body pnt in • genteel

One needs he in his [Lincoln's] presence bnt a
few minutes to be convinced that, notwithstand
ing the awfully responsible and even critical posi
tion in which he is placed, he has lest nothing ot
his proverbial geniality of disposition, his buoy
ancy of spirits, or his love ot dry humor, good
joins and droll stories. The man has a terrible
penchant for fslory-teliing. He seem to forget, at
times, his pi sit ion ns President elect, in his recep
tion room, and to feel that he was again “on the
circuit” in soiie* country-seat, court adjourned, at
torneys about the oar roomJire, whiling away the
evening hours with amusing reminiscences and
ludicrous aneedo'es. I verily believe he would
crack a joke at the crack of doom.

Lincoln, in conversation, is very apt to take
what the garoons of the cafes of Paris term “ze
true positioned’ Ameriqne” (the American position)
—that is: his feet—enormous feet, too—aro very
apt. in the excitement of conversation, to become
derated to a position on a store or convenient table,
some ten inches higher than liis head. Through the
space between his elevated heels, the American
statesman is supposed to be gazing speculatively
at future fields of conquest and annexation, while
at the same time is sternly bidding the rest ot man
kind definance. If the F'reneh interpretation of
our American posturing be correct, I am happy to
say that I know Lincoln takes the true American
posi toil—takes it often and readily. When that
long form swings itself into the White House door.
I doubt, hut it will create consternation among
many of the exquisite habitues of Washington.

The Charleston and Savannah Trade.—The
South Carolina secession has not yet very materi
ally affected the business of the Charleston and
Savannah lines of steamers, though its influence
is felt to some extent. The business of the
Charleston line on outward trips, both in passen
gers and freight, is light, even for this season of
the year. There are fewer passengers, particular
ly. of merchants, drummers and persons of that
class. Tho return business from this port, how
ever, is more active, than it was last year, and the
slime is trne of Savannah; while both iines iiave
more steamships on service than during the last
season. Large quantities of cotton and rice are
coming forward, freights are better than they
were last winter, and the passenger lists larger,

yet on account of secession. The Charleston

The “Protection of Washington.”—General
Mrott carries out the Biark-Hepnbliran
AVo are not suffered to forget that Gen
eral Scott continues his “military disposi
tions to protect Washington.” He is
gathering troops here from the remotest
frontier. To what extent his tactics affect
exposed settlements, and imperil the lives
and property of families that have entered
the wilderness in reliance upon federal
guardianship, matters not to him, or to
those whose work he is doing. He is re
solved lo “protect Washington”—that be
ing the phrase most convenient to garnish
the purpose of helping Mr. Lincoln when
he comes to enter into possession of the
Presidency. Therefore, General Scott’s
“military dispositions” are pushed for
ward vigorously. Even Kansas must suf
fer. The troops whose entry into the city
and gallop to the arsenal, hours before
daylight on Sunday, startled slumbering
citizens into a vivid sense of war’s alarms,
have been brought from a post which they
occupied for the protection of the sparse
seltlenfeuts of Kansas; leaving Montgom
ery and his thievish, murderous crew to
prosecute their plans with impunity. And
brought for what? Stationed in the
Washington arsenal for what? To “pro
tect” the city, forsooth, from imaginary
enemy! To arrest secession in Maryland
and Virginia! To preserve the District of
Columbia for the black-republicans, and
the White House for Mr. Lincoln!
It is not easy to write seriously upon a
subject so essentially ridiculous as this no
tion of “protecting Washington,” and
taking care of Mr. Lincoln in advance of
his arrival. Who has threatened Wash
ington? What are its advantages in a
j military point of view, that the South
should be supposed tube foolish enough to
; heed its possession as a place to be fought
j for? As for Mr. Lincoln’s inauguration
' here, who cares a straw? Who proposes
to meddle with him? Secession will not
be stopped by his appearance here. And
though he be crowned King upon the
Capitol steps, “who’s afraidj” We echo
Mr. Seward’s inquiry, “Who’s afraid? *
This talk about “protecting Washing
ton” is nonsense. But it is the excase
under cover of which General Scott sad
his black-republican allies hope to gather
hordes of armed Wide-Awakes and anti
slavery volunteers at this point, that by
one great demonstration the South may
be frightened from its propriety! If <=ur
explanation be doubted, we refer in proof
to the manner in which the Scott policy is
heralded and applandcd by black-repulli-
can journals. They know well that with
out some justification this impudent at
tempt to create a military dictatorship
would be indignantly hooted down; and,
therefore, they keep up the cry that
"Washington is in danger,” and that
“troops must obcollected for its defence.”
Kcyond the black-republican pale, Gener
al Scott’s proceedings have no defender.

Mrs. Swisshelm who according to Prentice is well
versed in the subject, gives some excellent advice re
lative to the treatment of babies. As our esteemed
friend “Locai" of our over-the-way neighbor, disclaims
any knowledge of “Infantry tactics' we rummeud it
to his special attention. Mrs. Swisshelm believes
that one-half of the children born die in the fiist year,
and that ninteen out of twetny die from cold and

prevailing idea is that babes areehiiledtoHeath,and
that in summer oi winter the greatest care should be
taken to keep them warm. She says: Keep the
lmby warm ! Warmth is life. Cold 'is death. We
think it unnatural to have their little bald heads bare—
believe that the air on tht* t»calp it* a constant and
dangerous stimulant to the brain—believe that Na
ture, in her efforts to keep the head warm sends too
much biood to the bead; and that this is one fruitful
cause of the brain fevers, tee.., which carry off so
many children. If it were right arid proper to have
tlie scalp exposed to the air, Nature Would not have
clothed the human head; and until the natural cover
ing comes, an artificial substitute should be supplied;
but upon this point we do not hope to influence any
one. Dutch babies wear raps, and how could any
lady of tusfe have her baby look like a dutch baby !
Just ho and Dutch babies generally live, laugh and
grow fat, for they are “emothrrrd in flannel” and
feathers, and kept all in “a sweat.” Dutch mother'
do not keep their babies for model-artist exhibitions*
They cover them up. keep them warm and quiet, aud
raise a wonderful number of sturdy boys and girls.
We treated onr baby on the Dutch plan, aud never
lost a night’s s'eep with her.
A baby should never be laid down to sleep, summer
or winter, without having something warmed by afire
nnd put in its crib, on which it should be laid, and
carefully tucked up. Inwiit-r, in an ordinary sitting
room, there should be a thick b lnket. double and well
warmed, between it and the bed; the babv linsn’l heat
to 'pare to warm all the bedding around it every time
it wants r. nap, and it should be so warm while sleep

laughing, while a blue cold sleep, such as most babies
have, makes ono cross and fretful.
The New York Evening Pori says of Mr. Jefferson
Davis, in allusion to his recent speech :
“He has been a ringleader in the eonneils of treason
for many years. His principal stocs. in trade as a
politician has consisted of his extreme Southern senti
ments. As early as 1850 he began to stimulate dis
content and to menace a rupture of the confederacy.
He has ever since worked upon Southern passions. He
has induced the ignorant to believe in the practicabil
ity of schemes which were to him only parts of a polit
ical game. But now that the horrors of actual civil
war at the South rise before him he grows siek of his
labors. His last speech in the Senate is, in its whole
tone and manner, a confession of error- No ono
can read it without feeling that Davis has prepared an
entertainment for himself which he is not ready to
eat. A good deal of the old arrogance is in it,—tha
arrogance of habit; the bitterness cannot he disguised;
but the voice is subdued, deprecatory, almost suppli
cating. Compared with the roar of Iverson or
Toombs, bis roar is gentle as a sucking dove. He
wants peace if he can get it, lie wants <>«-i,cilintion if
he can get it. he wants delay if he dare to ask it. He
assures ns that no assault upon the Capitol is intended ;
the evils of civil war produce the most vivid impres
sion upon his mind ; and -his profoundest wish is, that
tlie old friendly intercourse of the sections may re
main.' The poor apprentice has been working with
tools that he cannot handle.”
A fair specimen this of the styla in which Southern
sponded toby the black republicans !
If any speech delivered in the Senate during tha
present session merited kindly regard at the hands of
the North, it was Mr. Jefferson Davis’s. In tone, in
manner, in argument, it was as frank and generous an
overture as anv Southern man could make without
transgressing the limits of self-respect. Discarding
reproaches, avoiding aggravation, turning aside
taunts, Mr. Davis addressed to Northern Senators
an earnest and impassioned; we liad almost said
a pathetic, appeal for justice within tlie Union;
with master hand conjuring np reminiscences of
common glories in the past, and arraying in full
est force the duties of the present and the dnngers
of the future. There was a magnanimity in the ef
fort which would have commanded the respect of any
party not sunk below the standard of ordinary de
Mr. Trumbull's reply proved at the moment that
the Black Kennulienns were unable to appreciate
the spirit in which Mr. Davis had spoken, or the
scope of the argument upon which he rested his ap-
peal. And now the Evening Port, which, of all the
Black Republican press, most affects the air of cul
ture, out-Truinbulls Trumbull in insolence and vul
We trust that the lesson will not be thrown away.
The Southern mnn who now talks of sustaining the
Union, aud would have the Black Republicans act
honestly, may see in the abuse levelled at Mr. Davis
the reward that is in store for himself. His appeals for
friendly eoneession will be cited as proof that lie 'grows
siek of bis labors’ in behalf of the South. His employ
ment of any other tone than that of menace will be pa
raded to show that he is “subdued, depreentory, al
most supplicating.” His final effort to preserve the
Union will be held up to derision as a demonstration of
personal cowardice; as evidence that “hr wants delay
if liedard to ask it ” that ‘he wants peace if he can
get it,” at any price!
Mr. Davis's courage stands high above ary need
for vindication in reply to black republican assaults.
And if lie with his bnliinnt record as a soldier, is to be
singled out for accusation as one who is afraid to do
his doty, who may hope to speak of peace with the
North without subjecting himself to the imputation of

They aro farts which serve to illustrate more forcibly
than labored rhetoric the absence of all sympathy be

dominant party of the North aie two peoples, and no
