failed to imnros n:e with any reasonable

It was through the Hon. Fernando
Wood of New York, that the announce-
ment was first mndo to Ihe public., that
terms of settlement were mndo lo the.Tac-
obins nt Washington in Decemler last,
and by them rejected, w hich, had they
beer, accepted, would have been "satis -
factory to the people loth North tnd South,"
No response, ether than a faint denial,
nnd which was ut once promptly met by ,
Mr. Wood, was mnde to this.
Since then, Mr. Vallnndigliam made
the following declaration :
"Or. the 12th of last December, when
from the city of Kichmond information
came lo tho city of New York thnt there
was a disposition lo compromise and re
turn delegates to the national Congress
and be obedient to tho Conslitu'icn nnd
Laws, and thus icstore the Union as it wns,
the President, on that day, rejocted tho
proposition, and tno damning evidence of
rejection ex:sts in cw lork over nisown
autograph but there is an obligation of
secresy nt present, nnd tho letter hns not
yet been given to the public."
To this no response whatever, so far ns
wo have seen, bos been made. Is it true,
or is it false f If false, that fact can be
easily demonstrated. But if true, what a
fearful responsibility those who are drench

giving over fourteen hundred thousand
votes for freedom ; ami a disclaimer on
meirpari mat mo isorin intoniiea thereliy
to touch slavery where it has long existed.
TiieSouth knew all this bolore; and in as
failing the North as intending to interfere
with shivery in the Southern Stater, mere
ly either gavo vent to thoir fears as guilt
olten does; or desired to obtain from tho
north an apology for rebellion against the
authority to which she the North bad
so long bubmited.
Now: such members as thus anolomsed
for the north, betrayed their trust. W hat!
fourteen hundred thousand freemen go
down on their knees beforo three hundred
thousand slave drivers, and make npoloi
gies ana beg forgiveness : When those
fourteen hundred thousand voted in Nos
vember last, they voted as men not as
slaves; and their representatives ought to
be aware that the charges of President
Pierce were not only false, but so clearly
false, as to be h hoHy unworthy of notice.
In makint' nnolog eg they have cratifk-d i
the low vunity of the slave drivers, and en-,
couraged them to continuo thoir efforts on
Kansas, nnd to practice fresh insult and
outrago ou tho north. We have yet to
reap the fruits of theso apologies. Had
Wsuster stood firm in lSjtt, the south had
not ventured on the experiment of 1j4.
The slave power is weak, but united, steal
thy, cautious and cunning, and when the
time for action comes it is audacious.
It is fortunate that the north holds two
remedies in her hands. The first disun
ion which is a rapidly yroioimj idea, and is probt
able : the second it striking the slave power
licadbi, abolishing slavery, coistitutinn or no
constitution. The north has the power to do
either. As yet it lacks only the will. Pro
gress however is constant ; and in the com
ing quarter of a century, ono or the other
will take place ', and if ihe first then the
second follows, for it is the Union that keeps
slaver' alive. The Abbervillo iS. C. Spccta

Webster obtained n commission as cap-
toin ot cavalry from Governor Picrpout in
November last, on a forged letter of rec
ommendation. !n tho meantime he wns
captured by the rebels, was paroled, nnd
had returned to his company; but the fact
of the discovery of ihe forgery having
leaked oul, Captain Webster pnseeu with
in ihe rebel lints to escape a trial by a
Federal court martial. It is suppose J that,
under these circumstances, he was ngnin
nr res led bv the rebels, nnd tried nnd con
victed for vioWtiug hi parole. Not much
is known of Webster beyond what is
above 6tnted. lie was thrown unto the
surface by this rebellion, from somewhere
ir Toxns or ihn West, and was regarded
,IS a very ignorant but daring and resolute
fellow. He dealt with the rebels without
mercy nnd without fear, nnd is reported
to have killed a rebel otlicer, not long be
fore his second arrest, by cutting his throat
from ear lo cur.
