A Glance at the Times.
A very few days ago oar country seemed in
the midst of prosperity almost without a paral-
lel. Everything looked bright for the future.—
We have abundant crops, good markets at fair
prices end general health tbreagUout thecoua-
try. There wis nb reason that could be divined
why. a recurrence of the times of 1857 should
aweep o’er our land—no cause why a financial
panic brought about.' Notwithstand
ing a 11. this, owing entirely to political causes,
the nature of which we propose to glance at,
our country is startled by Bank suspensions,
rapid decline in stocks, extreme tightness in
money matters, prostrating for the time old and
stable institutions—always, and now, regarded
as perfectly solvent—and all the excitement of
n money panic seizes the public mind. - What
jgplitical difficulty has brought on this trouble?
all agree that there is no occasion at
this time for a money panic. This is not a crisis
brought about by over-tradiny or any extensive
qbute of credit, which causes led to the crisis of
three years ago. Our country bad began to re-
cover from that shock. Those not able to stand
up under the difficulties which came upon them
then, went clown, and those who suspended tem
porarily, resumed.
The present suspensions of Northern banks
and decline in Northern stocks, is owing wboly
to. the action of our Southern brethren, and while
we do not intend to indulge in reproaches against
them at this time, in the midst of difficulties
created by their own folly, we desire to advert
briefly to the reasons given for the course pur
sued by certain party leaders—ambitious, bad
men, of the cotton States, whose only motto
. seems “ rule or ruin." That there have been a
few individuals, of the class above referred to,
in the far Southern States, who were desirous
to see this glorious Union dissolved, for the
pqrgose of starting a Southern Confederacy, we
full well know* but until this time all their ef
forts in that way produced no effect on the popu
lar sentiment, either North or South, which was
“The Udion, it must and shall be preserved.”
The election of Mr. Lincoln is seized on by these
persona as a pretext and stated to be a cause
for the breaking up of the States. That the
election of a President, strictly in the manner
provided for in the Constitution, under the prin
ciple that the will of the majority shall prevail,
should produce consequences such as these, is a
new feature in our country’s history.- Without
waiting for the President elect to be inaugura
ted, or to make one move in any manner inter
fering with the Constitutional privileges or
rights—without giving him a chance —a portion
of the Southern people, or rather self-constitu
ted representatives claiming to not for the people,
declare this cause for secession, hnd boldly pro
claim their right to secede.
In this they are clearly wrong. The Consti
tution of the United States is a compact'of the
several States—a hand that binds all together.
It recognizes no right of one State to secede
from the rest—no way in which a dissolution of
the Union can be brought about. If South Caro-
lina, or any 1 othhr State, should resist the col-
lection of the revenue, or in any manner vrar
against her sister States, the Executive of the
country should hold the violators of the Consti-
tation guilty of treason against the General
'-'Government and treat them accordingly. That
the present Chief Magistrate may profit by the
example of Jackson we tnnch desire. While we
do not recognise fce right of the Southern States,
or tuiy of dhem, to resort to measures of this
kxnd,wefully recognize their right to have all
■ 'laws passed for the benefit of themselveaor their
property, by the Congress of the United States,
carried out in good faith by the Northern States.
However objectlonal the act of Sept. 18, 1860,
commonly called the. “ Fogutive Slave Law,’’
may be to many, people of the North, salt is
worded, it-is the law, and all good citizens should
and wiil obey it. AllState,enactments in force,
that either In letter or spirit seem to conflict or
interfere with the power .to enfoise the■;Fpgu
'■; should herepealod. We see in
: dlfferent Sonthern exchanges tSaCPenneylvsnia
la-blassed as cno of the States that hos on its
Statutes a " personal liberty bill.” Penneyl*
mia has not now nor never had spy such law,
; has her legislature passed pny act since
• j ir dWing 18S0 that could in any monnerbinder

year. If the act of 1847, or the one .imetiph
pt it, looks that way, wo think it should!*
pealed. That be ‘
.owing to the decision of the SjtPJ‘*! , * ie
Court ot the United States in the case of Prigs
figoaut Pamtj/lvania.
AU fmr minded men of the North, and.espe-.
daily of this State, recognise the right of the
Bonfli, under the Constitution, to a fugitive slave
law—a law by which they may recapture them.
We are not aware that any legislation of this
State has ever in any manner had the effect of
interfering rilib the prewiit of Congress.—
Ifthrireis any such on oar Statute Book, the
nextlegislatare shonfal repeal it i
T|» President elect by bis published speeches
m hie debate with Judge Douglas m the Illinois ■
CSJapaign of 1868, distinctly givesitashis opin
ion -that the South is entitled to a fugitive slave
law, And that the law i should be enforced.—
Again it is unquestionably true that the States
complaining that this slave law is not enforced
and bold it good cause for revolution, are so sit
uated that no 'slave can escape from their limits.
The border States, that might complain, do not
do so. If Sonth Carolina would observe the
sensible plan of minding her own buemese, we
doubt not her people would live more pleasant
ly and more at ease, and the other States get
along fall as well. ,
We trust that a spirit of moderation will per
vade the minds of all lovers' of our Union, and
that we will continue 'long in the future, as in
the eighty-ydors of the past, to be the United
States of America, on benign influence
of liberty on all the world around.
All reasonable men must agree that there is
no cause for a dissolution of the Union or the
Recession of any State, apd certainly as little
cause for a financial panic which would in
volve the country in ruin and distress, situ
ated ns we are in 1860.
Qodey’s Lady’s Book for January, 1861,
is already on our table. It contains three steel
plate engravings and a colored fashion plate su
perior to any heretofore published in this or
any other book, besides innumerable engravings
of pattern work, embroidery, &c., which are
alone worth the subscription price. With this
number Godey’s Book enters upon its thirty
first year. We deem it entirely unnecessary to
add anything to what we have already said
about Godey. Wo will furnish it to our advance
paying subscribers at $2 per annum, which is
§l,OO less than they could get it for if they were
to send for it themselves.

Heretofore they have fulfilled ail their promises
and even done more than they promised, conse
quently we look for a good work during the en

ble determinatpf “Old Hickory” in the

Jackson arc fable in the present case
and ai e irrepn| and must be endorsed by
every good iitijn the Union : Gen Jackson
said:— 1 ,
“It would rfsuperfiaoos to add anything l
to show the nil of that union which connects
os; but,'as erfus opinions on this subject
are the foundl pf doctrines the most des
tractive to ouijce, I must give some further
developementiy'views on this subject, No
one, fellow ci£ has a higher reverence for
the reserved ri of the States than the magis
trate who nowllfesses you. No one would
make a greateisonal sacrifice or official exer
tions, to defeoem from violation ; but equal
care must be b to prevent on their part an
improper iutince with, or resumption of.
the rights theye vested in the nation. The
line has not bio distinctly drawn as to avoid
doubts of the exercise of power.
Men of the baotentions and soundest views
may differ in t) construction of some parts of
the Constitutic|>ut there are others on which
dispassionate |ction cau leave no doubt.—
Of this nature pars to be the assumed right
of secession. I’sts, 113 we httVe Kecn> on tbe
alleged uudivhkovereignty of the States, and
of their havingined, in this sovereign capa
city, a compaoihich is culled the. Constit
ution, from whij because they made it, they
have the right tcede Botu of these posi
tions are erronfl. and some of the arguments
to prove- them been anticipated.
The States have hot retained their
entire sovereign It has been shown .that, in
becoming parts a nation, not members of a
league, they sujider many of their essential
parts of The right to make trea
ties, declare wjlevy taxes, exercise exclusive
judicial and powers, were alLof them
functions of sotign power. The States, then,
for all these iiftaut purposes, were no longer
sovereign. Till®!- 111110 ® of their citizens was
transferred in - first instance to the Govern
ment of the U|d States ; they became Ameri
can citizens, aowed obedience to the Coueti
tution of the Hed States, and to lows made
in conformity!! l the powers it vested in Con
gress. This I position has not been, and can
not be denied How, then, can tUpt State be
said to be s«reign and independent, whose
citizens owesdience to laws not made by it.
and whose gistrates are sworn to disregard
those laws vn they come in conflict with those
passed by aiher? What shows conclusively
that the Stapannot be said to have reserved
an undivjdeiovereignty, is, that they express
ly ceded theght to punish treason—not trea
son agaiustbe separate power, but treason
against tlmaited States. Treason is an of
fence againsovereignty, and sovereignty must
reside with t power to punish it. But the re
served rightif the States are not less sacred,
because theiave, Tor their common interest
made the Geral Government the depository of
these power The unity of our political char
acter connoted with its very existence.
Under Government we had no sepa
rate 1 Char,act; our opposition to its oppressions
began as Ufd Colonies. We were the United
States undeihe confederation, and the name
was perpeued and the Union rendered more
perfect by £ -Federal Constitution. In none
of these stqa did we consider ourselves in any
other light an as forming one nation. Treaties
and allianc were made in the name of all.—
Troops weirnised for the joint defence. How,
then* witlull these proofs, that under all
changes ofiir position we bad, for designated
purposes, si with defined powers, created na
tional govurnents —how is it, that the most
perfect of t>se several monies of union should
now be coiderod as a mere league, that may
be dissolve at pleasure ? It is from an abuse
of terms, ompact is used as synonymous with
league, altugb the tnie terra is not employed,
because it ould at once show the fallacy of the
reasoning. It' would not do to say that our
Cimstitutic was only a league, but it is labored
to prove it compact (which, in one sense, it is)
and then targue that, as a league is a compact,
every counct between nations must, of course,
he a leagr, and that, from such an engage
ment, eve sovereign power has a right to se
cede. Et it has been shown that in this sense
the Statenre : not Sovereign, and that, even if
they wen and the Constitution had
been forad by compact, there would he no right
in any or Stale to exonerate itself from its
So obvjus are the reasons which forbid thiS
secession,that it is necessary only to allude to
them. Te Union was formed for the benefit of
all. It vis produced by mutual sacrifices of in
terests ad opinions. Cau those sacrifices be
recalled ! Can the State who magnauiiliously
sirrrendisd their title to the territories of the
West, reitll the grant? Will the inhabitants of
the inlad States agree to pay the duties that
may be pposed without their assent by those
on the Alantic or the Gulf, for their own bene
fit? N<;ono believes that any right exists in a
single Site to involve all the others in these
and couitless other evils, contrary to engage
ments slemnly made. Every one must see that
the otbe States, in self-defence, must oppose it
at all hoards.
Thesiare the alternatives that are presented
by the CinvCntion. A repeal of all the acts for
raising jjvenue, leaving the Government with
out tbejniJans of support: or an acquiesence in
the of our Union by the secession of
one of )ts members. When the first was pro
posed, t was 1 known that it could not be listen
ed to fir a moment. It was known if force was
applie] to oppose the execution of the laws
that limuat be repelled by force—that Congress
could jot, without involving itself in disgrace

This then is the position in which we stand.
A small majority of the citizens of one State in i
the Union have elected delegates to a State Con- i
vention. That convention has ordained that all 1
the revenue? laws of the United States must be |
repealed, or that they are no longer a member I
of the Union. The Governor of that State has :
recommended to the Legislature the raising of an
army to carry the secession into effect and that
