Office, Bellefonte,) Jan. 3, 1861. 3t. 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." Washington's Prayer 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 ngton. " 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 hard-eavaed victories. 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 tify their sympathy with her husband and their approbation of his conduct. Mrs, An derson was too unwell to receive calls, bow ever, but during tbe afternoon visited Mrs. Col. Scott. Major Anderson's yonngest son a boy of about twenty-tine months old, at 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 they bad one hundred guns fired in the Park on Tuesday evening, in honor of the Presi dent and tbe gallant Major. It was arrang ed that similar salutes shonld be fired at tbe same time in Philadelphia, Boston, and oth er cities." Blaf A number of years ago Mr. Webster was at a dinner table, bis opinion of Mr. Buchanan, and replied that "he was a politician, but no statesman." It is curious that a short time after, Mr. Buobauan was asked his opinion of Mr. Webster, and re plied, that "be was a statesman, bat no pol itician." In both judgments, contempt was expressed—Mr. Webstsr despising politi cians who were net statesman, and Mr. Bu chanan despising statesmen who were not politioians. Passion is a very keen observer bat pwretched reasoner. It is like the telescope, whose field is clearer tbe more contracted it 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.

Jaekson. in bis re* t ire area t at tbe Hermitage, wrote hie will with his own hand' In it/ among ether he* quests, are two, whiuh cngbt, at this time, to be published far present reading. These sentiments therein expressed, in this solemn document, evince more tban Roman patriot* ism, and should sink deep into the hearts of the people. llere is tbe literal Jnngnage of tbe dead : "Seventh. I bequeath to my beloved neph ew, Andrew J. Dwnelaon, eon of Samuel Don eleon, deceased, the elegant aword pfseented to me by the State of Tennessee* veiik this in junction : That he fail not to use it when neeeesary in the support and protection of our glorious Union, and for the protection of the constitu* tional rights of our beloved country t should they be assailed by foreign enemies or do* mestic traitors." "Eighth. To my grand-nephew, Andrew Jeckson Coffee, I bequeath the elegant sward presented to me by the riSe company of New Orleans, oommaaded by Captain Beal, as n memento of my regard, and to bring to his recollection the gallant servioos of his de ceased father, Oen. Join Coffee, in the late Indian and British war, under my command, and bis gallant conduct in defence of New Orleans in 1814-.15, with this injunction That he wield it in the protection of the rights secured to the American eitizaa under our glorious Constitution, against all iave* den, whether foreign foes, or inteaane trait* ore." 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 Telegraph. 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'* on er the government oat of ite present dii>- enlty, have been sadly disappointed. He d i utter one bold, manly sentimen*, but ac" 4 the part of a bitter partisan. The Dou*l. a journals throughout the country have littU to say about the speeoh, while the Admini. tration presses are loud in its praise. D u glas cannot forgive the Republicans far elect ing Honest Old Abe President. t&" We learn from Washington thai tb retiring representatives from Sooth Carolina sent back bj the CommiMfoners, whom Mr. Buchanan wouldn't treat with, and oollso ."! a little stationery that was due them. Tim was the principal business transacted by those Plenipotentiaries. It appears that $. 5 worth of stationery, is allowed to eash nni ber of the House. The South Carolina rep resentative* wsrs at Waehingtoa only tb--s wesks, and, of course, did not use u the r allowance. But in the excirmeat of the rt elution they forget to call for their eta ion. ery account before they left. Thia wna the buainess the Embassadors finished.
