There is one fact showing that the wrolite all have a common origin and that is, they all have the same fi temal appearance, aud all are composed of lh same element in every part of the earth where they have been found. We have : given yon, in a condensed form, the opin ions of the most eminent philosophers in rr ! gard to the theory of meteors, yet every ! theory advanced to the preeent, is involved in impenetrable mist. Nothing satisfartorv is known in relation to the origin of these wonderful phenomena. Atignst 4tli, 18(30.

With in thirty y<*ars, tin general mind of the South ha* advanced from tin- notion tbat slavery is an evil, only to be tolerated from necessity—to a settled couviction that it is, j a blessing to both race*.

To Us nothing i is wonderful than that a man of Mr Kverett’* learning, candor and patriotism ‘ should be wiser on the subject of slavery at | the age ot sixty-six than lie was at lbrty-five. i The truth is, that Mr Kverett, in tin course of a long public life, has generally been moderate and conciliatory to the South, on this subject. For a brief season, he was borne in an anti-slavery direction by the current of a strong local sentiment, but his noble mind soon recovered it v conservative tone Os this, there are thrc6 conclusive proofs. First, Southern statesmen, who have had the beat opportunities of knowing ins views, have been willing to trust him in offices infinitely more important than the Vice Presidency is, in the usual course of | events. Fecund, the Republican* of the J North look on him as their adversary, and ; omit no occasion of reviling him. Third, in his official action, when charged with any part of th<- National Administration, he has been just to the South. Ac far hack as IK-ti, he thus spoke in Congress: “Neither ant I one of those citizens of the North to whom another honorable mem ber lately referred, in a publication to which hi* name was subscribed, who would think it immoral and irreligious to join iii putting down a servile insurrection at lb*- South. 1 am no soldier, sir; my habits ami education lire untuilitary ; hut there is no cause in which 1 would sooner buckle a knapsack to my back, and pul a musket on tny shoulder, I than that.” In 1811, he was nominated by a Southern l’resident, (Tyler, before his apostasy,) to j the post of Minister to Great Britain, lie i wasflmvffiv npjKised in the Foliate on account of the very letter and resolutions quoted by “l’aijr l’lay.” Among the Senators who v'.ffC'TT'**rtie nomination were Glny of Ken tucky, Hires of Virginia, and Berrien of Georgia. For this vote, and others, Mr Berrien wa* eensured by the Democratic Legislature of Georgia in 18 41, iu a series ; of resolutions, one of w hich stigmatized this 1 i vote by name. Among the votes against this resolution i* that of Charles J. Jenk ins, whom the Democracy have, in late years, ; been very forward to praise. In September 1842, Mr llerrien publish ed an addrt” to the people of tievreia.” vin dicating his opinions and votes. Wc CX- 1 tract his remarks on Mr Everett's noniina- j tion: “M r IVtai n ‘s NOMINATION The vote which 1 felt it my duty to give on the nomination of Mr Minis ter to tireat Britain, is the neat measure which the Legislature of Georgia has deem ed worthy of censure. The majority of that i honorable body have supposed, that the rr- i ! jet-lion of this nomination, would have given ! an efficient check to opinions unfavorable to : 1 Southern interests in relation to slavery— i aud they censure the vote for his confirma i tion. as not truly representing the wishes of : either political party in Georgia. With | great resjieet for those who have expressed i it. 1 thiuk this supposition is erroneous in ! l>oth particulars The abolition party were anxiously expecting the rejection of this i nomination, in the hope of turning it to ad* j ■ vantage, and the journals of the day will | serve to show, what a flame it would have I lighted up in the Northern.

Unconnected with the morality of the question, slavery had | ceased to exist, before he entered on the ‘theatre of life. The efrcuuisteuce* of hi* j"itioii, lii.- n-- x-iations, bisndueutioa, were nil calculated to give httu diflerent view* on that subject, from those which we entertain- ! ml Hud he been bora and educated among ua, oar vc ws and hi* would probably have > been identical A* it is, it i* true tbat in the course of a tsditical canvass in w hich he was a candidate, and the discharge of his of !,i■ ia 1 dulic. a- Governor of Massachusetts, h- expressed opinions, which conflict with ours, in relation to the right of I ongrsaa to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia, and to interdict the slave trade between tin Mates, and as to the admission of territories into the Baiun, where slavery prevailed.— But he wa- an early, I believe the earliest, ) and certainly one of the most decided advo cate* on the floor of Congress, of the rights of the South— of their exclusive right, to determine the question of slavery for them -|vfN, when to the astonishmentof the more timid, or more prudent of hi* Kastern breth ren he declared his readiness Ui shoulder his musket, in the defence of them. Besides, the question presented to me. a* an American Senator, acting under an ob ligation to support the Constitution, was Itbis- Whether a man whose opinions on the subject of slavery were opposed to mine, was i for that cause alone, disqualified from hold ing an office, for which, I was compelled to i admit, as every body else did, that in other : respect* lie was eminently qualified. No such test, could be found in theConstitutioß, , and in my judgment, it was the ultruism of human weakness, for a Southern man to at tempt to interpolate it there. We could have succeeded then, for Southern \\ big I Senators would have been sustained by an 1 mo-! undivided vote of the opposition, ac ting’ as a party, though many of them car- j ried their hostility to slavery father tliun Mr. Kverett did. But the recoil would have ; been tremendous. If with us, hostility to slavery wa* a disqualification for office, would not our brethren of the non-slave bolding States bare attached the same dis qualification to its advocates? Neitherpre- j tencc finds any warrant in the Constitution. The list of disqualifications, too, might have j been increased. Some of us entertain pc- . culiar opinions in relation to our Federal j Charter We are State rights men— | Cnioiiiat—Nullifiers. These several opiu- I ions are honestly entertained, avowed and j acted upon. They are more intimately con- j neoted too with our federal relations, than i those abstract opinions on the subject of j slavery- What would have been our feel ings, if a distinguished citizen of the South, j eminently qualified for a high office, to which ; he was nominated, should have been rejee- j ted by our non-slave-holding brethren, be- ; [cause be entertained them ? if the messages |of our Executive Magistrates, the publica j tions which hud been made in the heat of a j political canvass, had been ransacked to fix ! upon him some opinions in politics or in j morals repudiated by them? lam myself ! a slave holder, at least as deeply interested , in checking the progress of abolition, as ! those who question the correctness of my ! \ conduct on this occasion. for the whole pro- I due-live property, to which I look for the j support of a numerous family, consists of I slaves, and the land which they cultivate. ) Beyond my personal labor, 1 have no other ! resource. 1 have every motive therefore, as j a Southern man, and a slaveholder, to resist the spread of abolition. It was as such, i I that 1 looked at this question. It win a* a j ; Soiitlnrn mini, ami a e/uve ho/ihr, that / | voted for Mr. Krvntt. It. did more to | el abolition, than any vote 1 had an op- i pnrtunity of giving. It manifested a deter j ruination to ui/w/e the subject of da-’eri/ fmm the tSemih ('handier. It deeply con cerns us to keep this question from the halls of Congress. Not with my consent, or by my agency of mine, shall it ever come there. It is under our own bright Southern situ, and around our own domestic altars, that it should alone be discussed. I know that 1 Fcnalors from tbo South, who abstained | (Vein voting on this nomination, participa i ted in these views, and would have acted j upon them, iftheir votes had been necessary ! to sustain it—and one distinguished Houth i ern Senator,* whose devotion to Southern rights has never been questioned, who felt constrained from bis particular position to vote against Mr. Kverett’s confirmation, i transmitted to me, soon after, a voluntary and unsolicited written assurance of his ap probation of my course. Those who censure this vote arc, I am | sure, under equal misapprehensions as to j the judgment pronounced upon it by our 1 own citizens, of whatever party, who have i looked to the question uninfluenced by par tisan feeling. While l have been cheered | by the approbation of many of our most in ■ telligent citizens, conveyed to me person ally ami by letter, no contrary opinion has, : in a single instance, been expressed to me. ! Beyond the denunciations of a partisan ! press, and I would not now point to any ; one of these, I saw this censured, for the ; tirst time, by the Committee on the [State of the republic, of the Legislature ot Georgia. : 1 know, too, that while the nomination was i pending before the Senate, several Southern men who aero large slave-holders, expressed the strongest anxiety for its confirmation, under a conviction of the impulse which its * trjreMow would **'■ to the spread ol aboli tion.” * The legislature of 1842 continued the war, repeated the censures aud resolved to ; have no further communication with the : distinguished Senator ; hut in their enumer- \ ation of his offences, they dropped the Ev erett vote —his defence of it having been so triumphant as to silence even those braieu i assailants. In the election of 1843, his j friends made the direct issue before the j people of sustaining or repudiating him, and after a warm contest, in which his Scnatori- j lal career was thoroughly canvassed, his j friends carried the State, and the legislature ; of that rear passed the following resolution : ; “ licsoltni, That we aud our constituents ! (ipproee rAeroi/ ot the lion. John M Her- ; rien, in the Senate of the Tinted States, j and cherish an honest pride in his on light- i ened patriotism and distinguished ability.” j And this was the end of the matter. So then, in the still unreversed judgment of the j Legislature of Ga,, speaking for themselves ■ and their constituents, the support of Mr. I Everett for a high office is not inconsistent with “euKghtened patriotism.” Among those who voted for this resolution were Thomas Johnson, Anderson t'rafl and Wm if Elbert. Indeed, in that mem orable Conflict of three years’ duration, the ! Elbert members generally sustained Mr Berrien by their votes They were the ccnUrmen above named, and T IV.

His official condui t with regard to the affair of the brig Creole, and other matters affecting the institution of slavery was en tirely acceptable to the .South. Mr. Kverett was out of office from 1*4.) to 1852, when, on the death ofMr. \\ ebstcr, he was called by Mr. Fillmore to the De partment of State This appoiotmant was unanimously ratified by a Democratic Sen- j ate, Ho, uuifjpg thirty Southern Senators, not one Jpumi-to resist the uppoiutment of this aileJjjS'l “ frec-soiler” to an office far more influential than the Vice Presidency! While in this office, lie conducted a di plomatic correspondence on a subject deep ly interesting to the South—the proposal of England aud France to the United States, that the three powers should, by solemn con vention, renounce all intention of appropri ating Cuba—the de*igti of which was to ’ commit this country forever against the ac quisition of that island. Mr. Kverett, as the organ of our Government, declined the proposal in a letter, which, for cogency of reasoning, elegance of style and souud -Ame rican views, elicited the admiration of the whole country, especially of those who hope that the “gem of the Antilles” will, at some j j future clay, be ours. Os the letter and its j author, Mr. Dogglas thus spoke in the Sen ate, March 10,18515: “ Sir, if he had done nothing else to render his administration of the State Department illustrious, his name would live in all ooming time in that diplo- matic letter, as one who could appreciate the j i spirit of the age, arid perceive the destiny of ‘ the nation.

Tt is well known that he approved of the Compromise measures of 1850. Being in private life, he had no opportunity of voting upon them, hut his political associations were with their supporters, and the Union j movements at the North, designed to create a sentiment iu their favor, had his warmest i countenance, which was eloquently express- j ed in his speech in New York, on the 22<1 1 •lay of February, 1851. “Fair ll,ty” quotes from his speech on ! the Kansas Bill to show that he considered j the Territorial policy “f 1850 as applicable j only to New Mexico and Utah. This is j [true; because if the Missouri Compromise ! were left untouched bv those measures, as I i j he supposed it to be, there was not another ! foot of unorganized territory on which any j policy, new or old, could operate In the same speech, Mr. Kverett describes j himself as “a friend and supporter of the i ('ompromises of 1850,” and also says of them, “ I adhere to them; 1 stand by them.” He also speaks of the “ recoil of the con servative mind- of the tion-slaveholding States frbffi this harnessing and disastrous i agitation”—language which, uo doubt, well j describes the change which he has himself; experienced. Towards the cud of the same speech he j “says feelingly: “ with reference to the great “question of slavery—that terrible question “—the only one on which the North and “ South of this great Republic differ irrecon “cilahly—l have not, on this occasion, a “ word to say.

It is not surprising that a man who is ac j tuated by .such sentiments should raise his [ voice in Kanouil Hall against the savage en -1 terprisc of John Brown; nor that he should j be constantly reviled by the Republican party; nor that his supposed loss of popular ; itv t home, in consequence of his conser vati,'in, should, last winter, have been the j theaie of exultant comment in the Senate of the United States, by Mr. Wilson, the free ; soibr from Massachusetts. Hut that Mr. Kvcrett should be branded in the South as a “free-soiler” by those in whose cause he ; has thus suffered in his Northern home, is a melancholy instance of the madness of par tv.
