No Surrender of Prineip'e.
The home organ of the President elect,
which no doubt speaks " by authority," is
an article nnder tbe above caption says that
"the receDt Presidential battle was fought
over the question of slavery extension. The
Republicans took ground in favor of free ter
ritories and the right and duty of Congrees
to exelnde slavery therefrom. On that ground
it conquered, and ike represents;', ton shonld
see to it -that there is no flinching from that
position—no surrender of principle, We
want tbe President elect and the Republican
members of Cungreea to say to the South and
to tbe world, that slavery shall not pollute
another inch of free toil belonging to this
Government, if it ia in tbeir power to pre
vent it. We have eteadily opposed the res
toration of the Missouri Compromise line,
and are equally opposed to any other legis
lation that shall surrender any free territory
to slavery. We are just selfish enough to
want it aU for freedom. When States are to
be formed out of tbe Territories, then let the
people framing those States say whether they
will or will not have slavery, and let Conn
grese respect tbeir decision ; hut until that
time let the Republican party use nil its pow
er to keep the territories free. We are op
posed to any amendment of the Constitution
that shall give to slavery further guaranties,
rights or privileges beyond those now given.
We want to see our government turned back
into the channel in which its framers origi
nally placed it—a channel leading it to free
dom—and we are utterly opposed to legisla
tion looking or tending in any other direc
tion. Slavery is the creature of local law,
and slave-holders, as such, have no rights or
privileges uud -r tbe Constitution—except a
Congressional representation of their peon
liar property, and a national law for the ren
dition of fugitives—and these are all the
rights they eyer ought to have, and, in onr
bumble opinion, all that they will ever get.—
We believe that slavery will ultimately be
come extinct in this country, and wo do not
want to see any legislation by Congress that
shall extend the period of its existence. We
would not interfere uith slavery where it ex
ists by virtue of Stita law—we would not de
prive it of any rights it now has under the
Constitution ; but we would have Congress
use its power to prevent the extension of tbe
evil. Republican members of Congress have
pledged themselves to this policy, and they
must live up to it or basely betray the trust
reposed in them by their constituents. We
believe that Mr. Lincoln is planted firmly on
this ground, and will not abandon it. So far
as he sod the Republican party can accom
plish it, tbe Territories shall be free. The
character of the States'to be formed out of
tbe Territories must be determined by the
people who frame and adopt their Constitu
tions. There will be—there can be—no
abandonment of this position by Mr. Lincoln
or bis party."
In thfßf days when nothing is held sacred,
and people for a shadow are ready to break
open and destroy the Temple of Liberty, like
midnight burglars robbing a church, every
thing in the least calculated to bring them
back to a realization of the'r condition is a
gain on the side of right, justice and human
ity. It ia in this spirit that we publish the
subjoined, which comes up as if from tbe
grave at Monnt Vernon, at this critical mo
ment in onr history:
" In the rammer of 1776, Washington, ex
ploring alone one day the position of tbe
British forces on the banks of the Hudson,
ventured too far from his own camt, and was
compelled by a sudden storm and the fatigue
of bis horse, to seek shelter in the cottage of
a pious American peasant, who, greatly
struck with the manner and language of his
guest, and listing at the door of his chamber,
overheard tbe following prayer from the Fath
er of his Country:
" And now, Almighty FatLer, if it is Thy
holy will that we shall obtain a name and
plaoe among the nations ef the eartb, grant
that we may be enabled to show our grati
tnde for Thy goodness by our endeavors to
fear and obey Thee. Bless as with wisdom
in our councils, success in battle, and let all
onr victories be tempered with humanity.—
Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened
minds, that they may become sensible of
tbeir injustice, and willing to restore our lib
erty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy
servant, for the sake of Him, whom Thou
hast called Thy Beloved Son >. nevertheless,
not my will but Thine be done."— McGuire's
Religious Opinions and Character of Wash
" A Bio THING."—Mr. Buohanan, on the
fonrth day of next Marob, will be like a cer
tain Knickerbocker Governor we have read
of. He can exclaim, "I am the most popus
lar President the country ever had. I went
in unanimously, and—l go out unanimous
ly and so far as the sentiment of the
American people is oonaeroed, a load
"amen" will answer him on every side.
IT®* QOT. Blaok has vetoed a bill passed
by the Nebraska Legislature to prohibit sla
very in that Territory. The House,
er, repassed the bill; and the Couooil will
also lepass it.
The Voice of Henry Clay.
During the debate in tbe Senate in 1850,
on tbe "Compromise Measures" ef that year,
Mr. Dawson, of Georgia, declared that tbe
eontingenoy bad arrived which compelled
the calling of a convention in bis State to
provide for the extreme remedy of disunion.
Henry Clay followed him, and in the course
of his remark*, threw eat thejfollowing pa
triotic sentiments, which every man at this
time ought to read:—
Now, Mr. President, I stand here in my
place, meaning to be unawed by any threats
whether they come from individuals or from
States. I should deplore, as mueh as any
man living or dead, that arms should be
raised against the authority of the Union,
either by individuals or by States. But af
ter all that has occurred, if any one State,
or a portion of tbe people of any one State,
choose to place themselves in military array
against the government of the Union, I am
for trying tbe strength of tbe government
[Applause in tbe galleries.] lam for ascer
taining whether we have a government or
not—practical, efficient, capable of maintain
ing its authority, and of upholding tbe pow
ers and interests wbieb belong to a govern
ment. Nor, sir, am Ito be alarmed or dis
sauded from any such coarse by intimations
of the spilling of blood. If blood is to be
spilt, by whose fault is it T Upon tbe sup
position, I maintain it will be the fault of
those who choose to raise the standard of
disunion, and endeavor to prostrate tbe gov
ernment ; and, sir, when that is done, so
long as it pleases God to give a voice to ex
press my sentiments, or an arm, weak and
enfeebled aa it may be by age, that voise
and that arm will be on tbe side of my coun
try for the support of tbe general authority,
and for the maintenance of the powers ofj
this Union. [Applause in tbe galleries ]
Refusing to Abandon the National Songs-
A correspondent of one of onr Southern
exchanges announces his determined opposi
tion to the abandonment of tbe National
Songs, as indicated in tbe action of certain
publie gatherings in Sooth Carolina and
Georgia, confessing tea peculiar love for tbe
brave old strains under which our fathers
fought and won. The writer naively adds:
I sincerely believe I never could learn to
get entirely over a certain moisture of the
eyelids that always comes to me When listen
ing to the sweet and stately melody ot the
Star Spangled Banner, whether iseoing from
a company of mimic soldiers in the broad
glare of day, or whether at nightfall, gently
swelling over moonlit waves from a far-off
line-of-battle-ship. Nor do I think 1 could
easily conquer a certain tingling of the fin*
ger-ends, and a peculiar combatiye tendency
which will creep oyer my usually qniet na
ture, when tbe soul-stirring notes of Hail
Columbia, marching oawa;d like an army to
the field, suddenly breaks upon my ear.—
Much less, ia yiew of tbe fact that even
Yankee Dcodie, played on a two stringed fid
dle by a negro boy, seated upon a cotton
bale, will c.: use emotions patriotic in char
acter. would I guarantee to nerve my heart
to utter forgetfulness of aby other of our na
tional melodies, endeared to us by so many
recollections of brately-fonght fields and
B§g* The New York Herald says: "Major
Anderson is tho man of the hour. Tbe
pie of the Northern States heartily endorse
bis conduct, and in almost every principal
city, guns have been fired in his honor—
Mrs. Major Anderson is, es we have before
announced, spending the winter at the Bre
voort House, and on New Year's day, hun
dreds of the leading citizens of New York,
irrespective of party, ealled upon ber to tes

their approbation of his conduct. Mrs, An

traoted much attention by bis dress, which
was an exact fao-simile of that worn by bis
father at Fort Sumpter. The action of the
President in sustaining Major Anderson, so
gratified the Democracy of New York, that

Blaf A number of years ago Mr. Webster
was at a dinner table, bis opinion of

that a short time after, Mr. Buobauan was

An Incident i fort Snmpter.
A gentlemar. who recently returned from
Port Snmpter, details in a Baltimore paper
an impressive incident that took place there
on Major Anderson inking possession. It is
known that the American flag, brought away
from Port Moultrie, was raised at Bumpter
precisely at noon on the 27ih alt., but the
incidents of that "fl.-.g raising" have not
been related. Ir was a scene that will b-* a
memorable reminiscence in the lives of those
who witnessed it. A short time before noon
Mnjor Andersoh assembled the whole of his
little force, with the workmen employed on
the fort, around tbe foot of the flag-staff.—
Tbe national ensign WHS attcched to the
cord, and Major Anderson holding tbe end
of tbe lines in his hands, knelt reverently
down. The officers, soldiers and men clus
tered around, many of them on their knees,
all deeply impressed with the solemnity of
the scene. Tbe chaplain made an earnest
prayer—sueh an appeal for support, encour
agement and mercy as one would make who
felt that " man's extremity is God's opportu
nity." As the earnest solemn words of tbe
speaker ceased, and the men responded
Amen, with a fervency that pc.hsps they
bad never before experienced, Major Ander
son drew tbe " Star Spangled Banner" up
to tbe top of the staff, the band broke out
with tbe national air of " Kail Columbia,"
and loud Eind exultant cheers, repeated again
and again, were given by the officers, sold
iers and workmen. " Soith Carolina had at
that moment attacked the fort, there would
have been no hesitation npon tbe part of any
man within it about defending that flag."
Hew Way to Collect Old Debts
One good thing might come of a dissolution
of the Union. When Mississippi repudiated
her bonds, issued in the great inflation of 18-
35 6, the British bondholders appealed to
tbeir and the subject became a
matter oi diplomatic controversy between
England and the United States. England
wanted to coerce Mississippi, but as that
State could not be touched without attaoking
the Union, whioh was not responsible for the
bad faith of tbe reca'citrant Mississif pians,
the segis of tbe Federal power protected rhem
from the consequences of tbeir crime. Sup
pose, however, that Mississippi secedes and
reasenmes her sovereignty. There will then
be no one between ber and the power of
Enghnd, whioh would soon be on tbe Gulf
with a fleet to assert the claims of her citizens
to tbe payment of these ancient bonds, aud
enforce justice by tbe strong arm.
FINANCIAL ASPECT CF SECESSION.—It puz
zles us to understand how the new " South
ern Confederacy" is to establish its public
credit. Are they fools enough to suppose
that capitalists will lend mo.iey to a confed
eration of States who admit tbe right of se
cession, and are pledged to its recognition f
Under jnc'n a system, any capricious State
might at any time take * " miff" and secede,
and overthrow the whole finances of the con
federacy. We predict that when the agents
of tbe new republic go into the money mar
ket to raise funds upon the faith in their
public credit, they will see rather bine times,
and find a dreadful stingency among money
lenders. Then some ot those hotheads will
realize the fact that secession is not going to
be a very fanny affair after all.
Dsg" Gov. Hicks, of Maryland, is entitling
himself to the lasting gratitude of all the
friends of the Union. Tbe most desperate
efforts have been made to induce him to re~
voke his d 9 ninatii ■ not to convene the
Legislature. But he stands firm—neither
seduced by persuasions nor awed by threats.
The o ject of tbe secessionists is to get a
State Convention called, and, if possible, get
Maryland out of the Union before tbe fourth
of Mareh, so as to take possession of the
Capitol—prevent Lincoln's inauguration—
start tbe Southern confederation in Wash
ington, and claim to be the tiua United
States Government, demanding recognition
as such from foreign powers.
jjigr Hon. Jameß H, Campbell, a member
of the Honse Union-saving Committee from
Pennsplvania, writes home to the Miner's
Journal that he thinks the time for compro
mise has passed away. " Concessions to trail
tors wilh arms in iheir hands, canngt be made."
To make them is to permit the Government
ts be coerced. This is the sentiment of the
entire population of Pennsylvania, except a
few dirt-eaters who are still chained fast to
the pro-slavery difunion faction. Let Mr.
Campbell and his fellow-members of tbe
Pennsylvania delegation vtit d fast by the
Union as it is, and they may rely upon their
constituents to back them.
965" It Is suggested that if -South Carolina
will not oome back into tbe Union, all tbe
States shall go over to ber. She could hard
ly refuse so magnifioient an offer. The
names of the States might b changed, and
the National Capital could be removed to
Charleston. We should still have a glorious
nation, the whole of whiob weald go under
tbe general name of South Carolina. If
Mohammed will not go to the mountain, let
the mountain go Is Mohammed.

The Southern Eeign ci Terror.
The Southern fire-eaters have gone from
bad te worse, till at last there is hardly a lo*
cality in that section where Northern men
are safe, either on their travels or in their
homes. Orders to leave on short notice, tar
ring aud feathering, lynching and assassina
tion, constitute the programme for the bene
fit of Northerners, without distinction. The
fact that a person is from the North, is pri
ma facia evidence that be has "no rights
which Southerners are bouad to reepeet,"
and all gocd citizens are expeoted to assist
iu toe administration of slaveooracy penal
ties. But this course of proceeding is not
oonfined to persona from the North alone, for
Southerners who dare to express the senti
ments of Washington, Jefferson and Clay,
are treated with similar attention. The la*
test example is found in the ease of Joba
M. Butts, who, although a slaveholder, is not
considered sound on the "divine right" of
the slaveholders to rule the country and
make the United States a slave empire; and
who has also expressed in terms of honest
boidnsss, bis oppoeitioa to the disruption of
the Union on account of the denial of that
monstrous pretenoe of the slaveholder*. Pa*
pers are in oiroulation at Richmond, and
elsewhere in Virginia, for signatures, and
are already numerously signs 1, requesting
Mr. Bolts to leave the State as soon as he
can pack his duds. In visw of snob a spirit,
and such a condition of society, the free peo
ple of the North are asked te surrender the
Territories of the United States to the exclu
sive occupation of slaveholders.— Harrisburg
WST Stephen A. Douglas made a charac
teristic speech in the Senate last Tuesday.
He spoke in favor of the perpetuity of the
Union, and against secession, but dsolared
that coercion was not the proper oonrse te
hold the Southern States in the Confederaey.
He was in favor of compromise, even at the
sacrifice of " my great principles"—non-in
tervention by Congress with slavery in the
Territories. He savagely attaeked the Re
publican party, and denounced Mr. Lincoln,
charged him with having given utterance to
unsound and dang * MIS doctrine, These
who had been looking to Mr. Douglas to p'*
