more consequence than matrimony totht
happiues- and be-t interest of those who
think of entering into its solemn relations.
But very few give the subject the consid

It is idle to attempt to smother these
great issues, or to misrepresent them by
the use of partizin phrases, which are mis
hading and delusive. Tho peoplo will
look beneath such expressions as "intor
vnntion," '.Congreshional slave code," and
tho like, and will penetrate to the real
questions involve!. The frien Is of equal
itv do not, nnd never did, demand a "Con
gressionol slave code," nor any other cede
in regard to property in the Territories.
They hold" the doctrine of non-intervention
by Congress or by a Territorial Legif-
ture, either to establish or prohibit slavery,
but they assert (forlifie.f br the hiahest
judicial tribunal in the Union) the plain
duty ol he reeralUovenjment, ... all

Inexorable logic, which works its steady
way through clouds and passion, compels
the coutry to meet the issue. There js no
evasive middle round. Already tho
signs multiply of a fanntic d and growing
parly, which denies that under the Consti
tution, or by any other lav, slave property
can exist; and ultimately this strugglo
must come between this party and the
National Democracy, sustained by ill tho
other conservative clement in tho Union.
I think it will bo impossible for a can
did man lo discover hostility to tbo Union
or a taint of sectionalism, in tho resolu
tions adopted by the Convention. The
Constitution and the Union reposn on the
equality of the States, which, lies
like a broad foundation underneath our
political structure. As I construe them,
tho resolutions simply assert this equality.
They demand nothing for any State or
seelion that is not cheerfully conceded to
all the rest. It is well to remember that
tho chief disorders which have afflicted
our country havo grown out of tne viola
tion of the Slate equality, nnd that, as
long as this great principle has been ics
pected, wo havo been blessed with harmo
ny and peace. Nor will it be easy to per

the wisdom, power andinfluence of a Clay,

Your friend and fellow citizen,
To Hon. Win. IT. Ludlow, of New York :
It. P. Dick, of North Carolina: and others
ot tho Committee.
Cut your coat according to your cloth,
is au oil maxim, and a wiso ono ; and if
people will only square their ideas accor
ding to their eircumsttinefs, how much
happier might wo all bo! If we only
would come down a peg or two in out no
tions, in nceordanco with our waning for
tunes, happiness would bo always within
read.'. It is not what wo have, or what
we have not, which adds to our substracts
from our felicity. It is "the longing for
more than we have the envying of i.hoso
who possess that more, and we wish to ap
pear in tho world ol more consequence
than we really tiro, which destroy our
peace of mind and eventually lead to ruin.
I never witnessed a man submitting to
circumstances with good humor nnd good
s?nso so remarkably as my friend Alexan
, ,.r Wil emot. When 1 first .nv him

to the balanco sheet being struck,
I As I observed, he had been r.t school
with me, ami, on my return from the East
Indies, 1 culled upon him to renew our
old acquaintance, ami 'congratulate him
, upon bis recent success.
"Mv dear Reynolds, I nm delighted to
: see you ; you must come down to llelem
Castle; Mis. Willemot wi!l receive vou
1 with pleasure, I am suro. You shall see
my two gills." 1 consented. The chaise
stopped at a splendid mansion, and I was
ushered in by a crowd of liveried servants.
l-.verything was on the most sutnputoiH
and miinilicent .-ale,
Having paid my
respects to the lady of the house, 1
1 red to dioss, as dinner was nearly ready,
- it beinis then half past s-ven o'clock. It
. was eight before wo sat down. To an ob
sol vation that I made, expressing a hope
that 1 had not occasioned the dinner to
bo put ,(!", Willemot replied .- "On the
contrary, my dear Reynolds, we never sit
down until about this hour: how people
can dine at four or five o'clock, I cmnot
conceive. 1 could not touch a mouth
ful." The dinner was excellent, and I paid it
the enconiums which were its due.
"Do not be afraid, my dear fellow my
cook is an artist extraordinaire a regular
Gordon Wen. You may eat anything
without fear of indigestion. How people
can live upon tho bnglish cookery of the
present day, I cannot conceive. I sel
dom dine out for fear of being poisoned.
Depend upon it, a good cook lengthens
your days, and no price is too great to in
sure one."
When tho ladies retired, being alone,
we entered into a friendly conversation.
I expressed my ndiuiration of his daucht
ers. w ho certainly were very handsome
and elegant girls.
"Very true they are more than passa
tie," replied ho. 'We havo had many
oilers, but uot such us come up to expec
tations, lijronets are cheap now-a days,
and Irish lords are nothing. I hopo to
settle them comfortably. Wo shall see.
Try this claret; you will find it excellent,
not n headache in a hogshead of it. low
pcoplocan drink port, 1 cannot Imag
ine." v Tho next morning he proposed that we
would ratlle round tho park ; and we 3t.
off in a handsome open carnage with four
greys, ridden by postillions at a rapid pace.
As we were whittling along, he ooserved,
"in town wo must of course drive but a
pair, but in tho country I never go out four horses nhich is delightful ,
it makes our hpirits clastic, and vou feel
that tho poor animals are not at hard la
bor. Pal her than not drive four, I would
prefer lo stay nt home."
Our ride was very pleasant, and in such
amusements 1 passed one of the most
plensont weeks that I ever remembered.
Willemot was not the least altered he
was as friendly, as sincoro, ns open-heart
ed, as when a boy at school. I left him
pleased with bis prosperity, and acknowN
edging that he was well deserving of it,
icugii ins ideas hitu assumed such a
scale of magnificence I went to India j
when my leave expired, nnd was absent!
about four years.
j On my return inquired after my a year. On my return, I found that my

circumstances nnd expectations had been ! quarters. He wm at. Brighton ; nnd hav
I greatly altered. From many causes, such ' ing nothing belter lo do, put 'myself in
