APPOIN I'M ENT BY THE PRESIDENT, Jy and with the advice and consent of the Senate, James Liddell, of Georgia, to be a commission, er under the 17th article of the Cherokee treaty of 1835, vice Wilson Lumpkin, resigned. [from OCR CORRESPONDENT.] WASHINGTON, Dec. 31st, 1837. The debate in the Senate on Mr. Calhoun’s which 1 very briefly alluded toon Thursday last, was so important that a more ex tended notice will not be uninteresting to your readers, and the people of the South generally. Before this can reach you, you will have received a copy of the resolutions themselves; and I to" lieve the majority of reflecting and observing men will agree with tho opinion publicly expressed by Mr. Preston in the Senate, that though they em brace the principles which state rights men ought to bo ready at all times, to assert and defend, yet it is by no means probable that they will accom plish the object Mr. Calhoun professed to have in view—namely, to furnish a common ground on which all who are opposed to the abolitionists, may he rallied. Without assuming to be tho apologist of the party, whom Mr. Calhoun calls “the Nationals,” I yet must think it would be the height of injustice to say that they are in the mass either leagued with the abolitionists, or give them any countenance or sympathy. Thousands and thousands of that party are slave-holders or live among slave-holders, and have their dearest earthly interests identified with the preservation of the rights and domestic institu. tions of the States in which they reside. Thou sands and thousands more there aro in other sec tions, who, it cannot be questioned, would be rea dy to march, at tho slightest warning, and signal ize their fraternal and patiiotic feeling, their devo tion to thoWLTnion, the Constitution, and the whole country, by pouring out their blood, if ne cessary, in defence of the institutions, the houses, and families of their Southern brethren. Arc these men to be excluded from the common ground on which Mr. Calhoun proposes to rally the opponents of abolition, because they will not subscribe lo the principles of the State Rights School 1 On this new rallying ground, what is to become of tho •‘Proclamation” party—of Mr. Van BuFeii and his Southern friends who sup ported it, and tho measures consequent upon it I JTST all of both parties, “the Nationals,” and the so-called Democratic Republicans of tiro Procla mation school, hereafter to be ranked with the fanatical disciples of Garrison and Thompson 1 These are questions which naturally arise, when we find a gentleman of great ability and 'distinc tion, presenting such a rule of division as a ground of compromise. I need not inform your readers that Mr. Preston entirely concurred in the truth of the piinciples which Mr. Calhoun proclaimed. All stale rights men will probably acknowledge their soundness. | But he differed with his colleague in tho assump- j tion tho' the assertion of the principles would be an antidote to the fanatical spirit which inspires the Abolitionists. Mr. Preston declared, that tb*rc was a necessity for some other action—hide, pendent of any proceedings in Congress—into which the Southern people and their representa tives could go with perfect unanimity. He could not expect any security for the South, from the passage of any resolutions. “We, who represent scc'ional interest,” —he exclaimed—“are now warred upon by sectional prejudices and passions, and sectional!!/, must we protect ourselves!” He referred to the proceedings of the Committee appointed by the late general meeting of the mem bers from the slaveMioldtng Slates. No distinct plan, he said, had yet been agreed upon ; but whatever it might be, some sectional action, he maintained, was absolutely necessary. He would be ready to join with his Southern brethren, to make a solemn appeal to tho people of tho North -*■lo arrest the progress of fanaticism, —or to make a terse and vigorous protest to the Slates, against the proceedings of the Abolitionists, —or he would be ready to come here, surrounded by his Southern friends, and protest against any farther agitation of the question, in any shape, by Con gress. Whatever should bo done, ho hoped *■ would be done with unanimity by Southern men ! —that very unanimity, ho believed, would boa harbinger of success. In conclusion, Mr. Preston repealed that he had no faith in a declaration of abstract principles, i as a cure for this abolition disease. A prnclama- 1 tion, or a recognition of principle is not enough, j flic South must have some additional guard for their security. A man dors not think his pocket. ! book safe, because stealing is acknowledged to i boa crime : And so he could not indulge tho 1 idea, that the rights of the South would be re- j opectcd, and their interests safe, merely because ! (her. set of abstract principles is acknowledged! and maintained. Mr. Strange of North Carolina, said that if the resolutions were urged, he would vote lor them ; but he deprecated agitation, from whatever quar ter it might come. Mr. Calhoun answered sharply, that sucli lan guage ought to be addressed to the assailants, not those who acted on the defensive. Mr. Strange said, his anxious desire was to stop all agitation. Ho thought, that Southern men ought not to entertain any discussion on this sub ject. There was nothing to gain hy it. Every debate, ko believed, tended to poison the mind of some slave. His Southern friends might well say to the Abolitionists in such a controversy, “Heads, yon win,—tails, I lose.” Hero the discussion ended, and the resolutions were postponed to Wednesday next. M.
