A Trip down Soath.
. The last week .of the contest in,
wc got a tsste of Southern democracy. The
Wide Awakes of Wheeling, Va., haying been
assaulted by the rowdies and being mo weak
themselves to bold a meeting in opposition
to the rowdy element, they called on their
Pittsburg brethem to aid them. It w.ie ac
cordingly arranged to have a grand parade
in Wheeling, on Friday Dight, the 30th of
Nov. Fifteen hundred Wide Awakes were
to be present, and with this force little dan
ger was to be apprehended from rowdies.—
Five hundred men were to go from Pittsburg,
five hundred were to he picked up at Steu
benville acd other points along the way, and
, five hundred were to Le raised iu and about
When the tima came for leaving Pittsburg,
the day was so wet and stormy, that instead
of five hundred men but one hundred repor
ted themselves at the Depot as bound for
Wheeling. With this meager force, bowey
er, we immediately set out on a special
train, expecting large recruits along the way.
When we arrived at Steubenville, whera we
confidently counted on a heavy reinforce
ment, we found only a few men, and a Tel
egraphic Dispatch' awaiting us, from the
leading Republicans of Wheeling, who bad
been informed of our progress, requesting us
to go back, and also informing us that the
parade bad been postponed. The Steuben
ville men returned to their quarters, but the
Pitcsburgers were not to be turned back so
easily. -A couiicil of war waß at once called,
and the Hon. Robt. McKnight was the first
speaker. He urged the Pittsburg men to re
turn, but ibey were immovable, in their de
termination to go to Wheeling. We tried
our hand, but it was like pouring water on
a duck's back —go to Wheeling they would,
and go to Wheeling thpy did. Mr. Bingham
of the Pittsburg Journal, also counseled them
to return, but without avail. Having failed
to induce them to go back, we resigned eur
elf to our fate, and on went the train amid
loud shours and huzzas for Wheoling. We
could not, for the soul of us, help thinking of
John Brown, Harper's Ferry and a gibbet—
it was a ghost "that would not at our bid
When we reached Wheeling, it was dark
ne pitch, and raiuiig We intm.diately d
eiubarked and formed into line. Only eighty
men took their plaoes in the ranks, but these
eighty were as brave and daring men as ev
er trod the soil of Virginia. With drums
beating and colors flying, we crossed the
wire bridge, (a beautiful structure,) and en
tered the town in the midst of a shower of
rain. In lees than five minutes the streets
were lined with thousands of people, men,
women and children* Our men bore them
selves gallantly, and their seeming total in
difference to the rain and wind, appeared to
strike the Virginians with admiration. Oa
we went, through mud and wet. saluted ev
ery moment by the jeers of the mob, aud
cries of John Brown—Abolitionists—stone
them, etc. Here and there a lair daughter
of Virginia would wave ber white handker
chief in grateful recognition, and then, per
haps for the next dozen bouses, we would bo
hissed at from almost ovary balcony. The
mob frequently seemed threatening, but we

opened for us, without any violence from the
We held cur meeting without much an
noyance. The building was densely packed
during the speeches, and but few interrup
tions occurred, After being most hospita
bly entertained at the McCiure House, by
our Virginia friends, we set out for the cars.
On our way to the Depot we wete set upon
by the rowdies, who had gathered in great
numbers along the line of march. Many of
our men were knocked down, cut, bruised
and otherwise hurt One only, we believe,
was shot. At length wa reached the mouth
of the bridge, and the falling of the ponder
ous gates, after the Wide Awakes had pas
sed through, shut off the mob and endeu the
Notwithstanding the complimentary es
cort we got out of Wheeling on Friday night,
we returned on Monday aud spoke there
again on Monday evening to a very large au
dience. This time tbey let us go in peace.
An nnwize saying l from Wiso
Gov. Wise, in a late speeob said that, "ao
help him God, if Abraham Lincoln is elec
ted he would resist his inauguration tc the
The moment Mr. Lincoln was elected, the
Constitution of the United States took him
under its care and provided for his inaugura*
tion. If Gov. Wise dares to disturb the op
erations of that Constitution he becomes a
traitor. Mr. Wise bas nothing to do with
Mr. Lincoln's inauguration. The Constitu
tion of Virginia provides for the holding of
slaves in the Commonwealth of Virginia—
John Brown went down to Virginia aad dis
turbed that Constitution in its operations,
and for that John Brown was hung. The
Constitution of the United States provides
for the inauguration of the President, and if
Gov. Wise violates its operations it will bang
bim, just as the Constitution of Virginia
hung John Brown. A. word to the wise is
We see our cotemporariee are much exer
cised about the division of tbe State and na
tional patronage. This is right, we would
rather see them manifest anxiety than indif
ference. The opinion of the public Press
ought to be consulted, for upon tbe Press de
pends the popularity of the administrations.
It is perhaps, after ail, the beet criterion
for its business is to watch the progress of
the canvass, and it seldom fails to mark the
deserving. The noisy active canvasser, as
well as the quiet worker, is pointed out, and
by the aid of public Journals alone, we
would not hesitate to make two-thirds of the
appointments that belong to this State, and
make them judiciously too.
Mr. Buchanan neglected to consult the
Press, (and it should reflect the wishes wf the
people,) in making many of his appoint
ments, and to this he is indebted, in a great
measure, for the failure ofhis administration.
But there is another great source of power
thaf must bo consulted by the official ia be
| stowing bis patronage—the politicians. To
j the anibi'iou* office holder, who looks beyond
I his present position, their wishes are of the
J utmost importance, for to disregard them is
' to preclude all possibility of future emolu
We feel confidant that neither Col. Curtin
nor Mr. Lincoln, will make any appoint
ments without due consideration. The wish
es of the people will be carefully consulted,
and no appointment made that will not give
perfect satisfaction. Let the people of the
District to which the appointment belongs,
control it. Let them express their preference
through their leaders, and let tbem see to it
that no favoritism is shown—and that no
drones creep into office. We have plenty of
good inen for every position in the gift of the
Governor and President, and none but active,
efficient working men should be placed in of
fice. There is one class of men that the par
ty in power seems bound to keep; they do
nothing to advance tbe interests of the par
ty, yet they must Be constantly kept in place.
It is time this pauperism was put an end to,
let the drones bo set aside—let the people and
tbe politicians agree on their candidates—
let the Press, without fear, favor or affection,
name tbe men, and let them be placed in
power, and four years from now the Repub
lican party will be invincible.
The Disunion Sentiment.
However much the people of the South
mnv affect to deplore the election of a Repub
cau President, they have the satisfaction of
knowing that it is the result of an unwise
policy, on the part of their own leaders.—
Since the days of Calhoun, the Southern ab
stractionists have gone wild over the doc
trine of "State Rights," and carefully nur
se 1 their one idea, until it culminated in an
c.pen and avowed disunion sentiment.
For years, they have sought a pretest to
raise the banner of revolution, by demanding
concession from the North, and have been
foiled in their efforts, because the Northern
do ffloetaey, in blind subserviency to Darty,
were always ready to yield to their demands.
They demanded a Fugitive Slave Law, be
cause t iey thought the North would not vote
fur it; and when they found the North ready
to swallow the pill, it was made still more of
fensive, by Mr. Mason, of Virginia, who, to
defeat its passage, introduced a provision
which authorises the Mershal of a District to
call on any person, within the hearing of his
voice, to aid him in arresting a fugitive eiuye,
under a penalty. Even this was acceded to,
fcrtLc sake of peace, and the bill became a
The next pretext was sought in a repeal of
the Missouri Compromise—not because they
wanted it, but because they thought the de
mand would be refused. The Northern
members, however, came up to the require
ments of their Southern task-masters, aud
that wise restriction which had been a "foun
dation of peace" for thirty years, was broken
down, to gratify the aggressive ppirit of the
The disunionists, still finding their ecbemee
thwarted py the yielding conciences of the
Northern democrats, determined to force an
issue that would drive off the party cf the
North, and thus increase the agitation and
excitement at the South, by making the elec
ticn of a Republican President certain.
Tcey therefore went to the Charleston Con
vention and demanded the recogn&tion of
slavery in the Territories by Congressional
intervention, and a slave code for its protec
tion, as a plank in the democratic platform.
The plan succeeded. The Northern del
egates refused to aceedo to this demand, the
disunionists seceded, under the lead of John
C. Breckintidge, while the majority nomina-.
ted Mr. Douglas, under the banner of Popu
This plan was matured and carried out by
the Southern leaders, for no other reason
than to stir up commotion at the South, so as
to precipitate those States into revolution and
disunion. And now the threatened secession
is to be attempted. Their complaint of North,
em aggression on Southern rights, has been
shown, over and over again, to have no foun
dation in fact; find their demand fur protec
tion to slave property in the Territory is a
"feigned issue." There is no Territory to
which they could send slaves, and if their
was, tbey have no negroes, to send ; and if
tbey had the land and the negroes, tbey have
not the population to eend with them. Thus
it will be seen that the whole plea for disu
nion is with out cause, originated on false is
sues, to gratify the selfish designs of ambi
tious dsmagogues ; and the sooner they are
convinced of their error, the better for the
peace and safety of the country.— Carlisle

A North m View of the South.
First let us present the case of the North,
as it should be regarded by onr fellow-couD
trymen at tbe Smith. On TuesJav last, the
people of the United States elected their
Chief Executive Magistrate to serve for four
years after the Fourth of March, 1861, and
their choice is ABRAHAM LINCOLN, of Illi
nois. This.act of the people is looked upon
by some of the citizens of a minority of the
States as good cause for severing their conneo
tion with the Union, and thereupon they de
clare their purpose to secede. If there is any
thing in this act to justify secession, it must
be in tbe manner of Mr. LINCOLN'S election ;
in his conduct and character as a public man;
or in the au'horitative declaration of princi
ples of the party by which he was supported,
So far as the election is concerned, is was
conduced in perfect conformity to the Consti
tution and laws, just as every other Presiden
tial election has been; and therefore theye can
be no room complaint on that score. As
to Mr. LINOOLN himself, he has served in
Congress, and has occupied a conspicuous
position in the public eye as the competitor
of Judge DOUGLAS for a seat in tbe Senate
of the United States ; aDd he has, therefore,
a record upon questions of national politics
upon which ho can be judged. When tested
by this touchstone, (and it is an ordeal from
which not a few of our statesmen sometimes
shrink,) it will be found that he has never
cast a vote, nor expressed a seDtiment, as a
public man, in which he has not the compa
nionship of CLAY, WEBSTER, FILLMORE,
EVERETT, and their compeers—men whose
patriotism is undoubted. Moro than that,
they are men to whom tbe people of the South
were perfectly willing to entrust their politi
cal fate. Hence if the political record of
ABRAHAM LINCOLN presents an act done by
bim, or any principle of public policy that
he entertains, which makes his eleetion a just
cause of secession to the people of the South,
the record of CLAY, EVERETT, WEBSTER or
FILLMORE would have furnished the same
cause, if either had been elected to the Pres
idency at this time; yet, who would be in
saue enough to maintain such an absurdity
The same cource of reasoning will lead to a
similar result as to the platform of principles
upon which his party placed bim before the
public. There are, of cource, wide differ
ences of opinion in regard to the soundness
of tbe different matters of policy declared in
the resolutions passed by the Chicago Re
publican Convention. This had always been
so, and will perhaps always eaotinue to be BC.
But whatever differences of opioion may ex
ist, truth requires the admission that there
is nether principle nor sentiment in those
resolutions that has not, at all periods of our
history, been held by statesmen who were
henored and trusted by both South and
North when 'iving, and whose memories are
cher'shed by all patriote, now that they are
If these principles, when held by such men
were consistent with fraternal relatic ns and
Union in the earlier and purer days of the
Republic, it is difficult to conceive, how tbey
of themselves can furnish just cause for dis
solution now Examining, in this way, this
vexed and vexatious subject of disunion on
account of LINCOLN'S election, the conclu
sion is inevitable, that nether the mode of
his election, nor his record as a public man,
nor the authoririve exposition of the princi
ples of the party by which he was supported,
furnishes any tenable ground on which any
of the Southern Stales caD-justify their alleg"
ed purpose to secede. This is the Northern
view, end, if our Southern brethren could
only contemplate :t calmly, those who would
not admit its entire and perfect reasonable
ness would be very few indeed.

Treason ! Treson !!
The steamer Keystone State had to haul
down the United States flag and put up the
Palmetto flag before ker arrival at the port
of Charleston. At least is so reported here
by passengers just arrived from that city,—
There ha<3 been no telegraphic communica
tion with it to day .—Phil'a. Inquirer.
If true, this is. carrying the joke rather
far. Only think—has it come to this, that
the American flag can no longer enter our
own ports. This is treason, and it Is the du
ty of our Government to crush treason when
ever and wherever it rears its horrid crest.—
Will Mr. Bucoanan enforce the laws of the
Government ? When South Carolina in 1833
rebelled under the lead of John C. Calhoun,
and hoisted the Palmetto flag, Gen. Jackson
said, " by the Eternal he would hang the
traitors high as bamen." That ended the
rebellion. Will Mr. Buchanan go as far ?
The President is sworn to support the Con
stitution, and he must now do one of two
things, either resign his office or enforce the
laws of the Government. To remain inac
tive is to perjure himself. He mutt act, and
we wait to see what he will do.

COLUMBIA, S C., Nov. Bth—The sneaker of

from Virginia, tendering the services of the

IMMEDIATE SECESSION OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
Efforts were mede yesterday in the Legis

ordered on the 4th of December, and the Con

A large body of citizens called on the Fed

demonstrations. Theoficials returned thanks
in spiritef addresses.

The Charleston Courier publishes a des
patch from Washington, which stated that
President Buchanan wiil resist nullification,
but not secession.
WASHINGTON, Thursday, Nov. 8, ISCO.
THE SECESSION MOVEMENT.
The President is greaily embarrassed.—
The tecedsrs know that if they wait till r.ext
4th of March, it will be impossible to do any
thing, even in South Carolina. If they
strike now, the President will be forced ei
ther to resign his office or to use his official
power against them, as he swore to protect
the Constitution, which they violate by leav
ing the Union.
The Constitution contained yesterday a
strong disunion article, said to have been
written by Ilowell Cobb's Assistant Secreta
ry. The President was immediately ap
proached by gentlemen of high standing,
who expressed their unqualified indignation
against his organ. This morning's Constitu
tion revokes the disunion article of yesterday
and comas out flatly, although with a little
twisting, in favor of the Union and against
secession. Mr. Iloweil Cobb, being thus re
buked, is said to have resigned his office.—
At least, that is rumor ail over town this
There vrill ba no secession. In South Car
olina and Georgia, the leaders want to se
cede for the purpose of getting into the Uni
ted States Senate.
The Mail publishes a despatch from
A| lalacbieola, stating thu*. McQueen Mcin
tosh, the Federal Judge of Florida, wiil not
hold office under Lincoln.
We have some men in Pennsylvania who
will aecrpt the situation. One or two law
yers might be found in Bellefonte who would

do no better, just let him write on and we
