„ ,THE DEFECTION OF DOUGLAS.”
Under this captivating title the Richmond
South of Saturday last, (the 12th inst.,) de
votes a column of denunciation to STEPHEN
A. DOUGLAS, of Illinois: The ,article opens
as . fellows :
1::'" We are no longer allowed to entertain a doubt
of 'Senator Douglas's determination to abandon
,the Democracy and enlist in the service of the
Black 'Republican party. In his speech of lust
Wednesday, he not only reproached the President
with the utterance of radical and essential error in
' the — Message but distinctly declared himself a
eliampiot - of ' Black Republican interests in the
Kansas controversy. Of course this apostaoy was
getoted With the unaffected applause of the party

'Of Senator Douglas. He was a-politician of con
', sideiable promise. Association with Southern
gentlemen bad smoothed down the rugged vulgar},
es of his early education, and he had coma to bo
quite a decent and well-behaved person."
"r'Ne do not underrate the sensibilities of
the people of the South when we say that

Dommas, will excite the indignation of every
honest man in that quarter of the Union.

Virginia, to the humblest editor in Mississippi,
is solemnly covenanted to defend—the plain
principle that, the will of the majority shall
'We have been told here, in the free States,
by a few politicians, that we must wait for
the development of events before speaking out
against the organized. villainy in Kansas; and
• yet, in the midst of these counsels, the Rich
mond South,- and other journals, indulge it:
such denunciations Mr these. It is only a few
days "since the Administration came in for the
censure of these papers, because it would not
displace and disgrace Governor WALKER ; and
now that they suppose they have induced the
Admiuistratioa to surrender to them, (in which
we fondly believe they will be fearfully disap
'pointed,) they turn about, and draw their dag
gers upon STEPHEN A. Dorm:As, of Illinois.
His offence is certainly a capital erne. He
stands by the principles of the Kansas bill:
-He demands that the pledges of the Northern
and Southern Democrats shall he fulfilled.
Ho implores that the people of Kansas shall
be PerMitted to vote upon their own Consti
tution. He protests against the sway of an
arrogant and confessed minority in that Terri
tory.. Let us see how much more culpable
his preseet position is than that of JAMEKM.
' MASON AND R. M. T. HUNTER, Is 1850,
when, in the ease of California, they, together
with JEFFERSON DAVIS, A. P. BUTLER,
PIERRE SOULE, DAVID R. ATCHISON,
-and others, demanded that the majority of the
people should vote upon their own Constitu
tion. We copy from their protest, published
in the Congressional Globe, of August 1, 1850,
as follows :
"In sanctioning this syLtoin of measures, thii•
Government will admit that the inhabitants of its
Territories, whether permanent or transient.
whether lawfully or unlawfully occupying the
same, may farm a State without the previous au
thority of law without even the partial security of
a territorial organisation framed by Congress;
without any . legal celestes or other efficeent
- deuce of their possessing the number of citizens
necessary to authorize flee representation which
they may claim; and without any of those safe.
guards about the ballot-box which. can only be pro
vided by law, and which are necessary to asap
tain-the true sense of a people. It will admit, too
that Congress, having refused to provide a Gov
eminent, except upon the condition of excluding
slavery by law, the Executive branch of this Gov
' ernment may, at its own discretion, mete seta
inhabitants to meet in Convention, under such
rules as it or its agents may prescribe, and to
ferns a r t,t, ato
----experx - - out those also of fifteen States of Con
federaey, by including, territory with the pur
pose of excluding those States (robs its enjoy.
meet, and without regard to the natural fitness of
boundary, or any of the considerations which
ehould properly determine-the limits of a State
It will also admit that the-Convention thus milled
into existence by the Executive may be paid by
him out of the funds of the United States, without
the sanction of Congress; is violation not only of
the plain provisions of the Constitution, but of
those principles of obvious propriety which would
forbid any act calculated to make that Conrentior
dependent upon it; and last, but not least in the
series 'of measures which-this Government must
adopt and auction in passing this bill, es the re
lease of the authority o f the United States by the,
Executive alone to a Government thus formed
and not presenting even stifficient evidence of its
hewing the assent of a majority of the people for
whom it wad designed. In view of all these con
eiderations, the undersigned are Constrained to be
lieve that this Government could never be brought
, to admit a Slate presenting itself under such cir
cumstances, If it were not for the purpose of ex
cluding the people of the slaveholding States from
all opportunity of settling with their property in
that Territory." -
This paper, thus Wined and sustained, was
filed against the admission of California, after
the people had voted upon their own Constitu
tion, after they had elected their Representa
tives- and Senators its Congress, and when no
objection was urged from California itself
against her admission into the Union. Apply
the objections of the Southern Senators to
California, to the case of Kansas, and what a
rebuke they inflict upon all who now crimi
nate Judge Donato and his friends! In
Kansas, (Which, Wits organized under a system
of legislation, of which popular sovereignty
is the very life and soul,) there is no at
tempt to prove, on the part of the ad
vocates of the Canine Constitution, that
the ballot-box has been guarded; no at
tempt to - show that the majority, have
been represented ; no census has been taken;
and whole counties were flagrantly and
, insolently disfranchised at the election for
delegates to the Constitutional Convention.
Messrs, HUNTER, MASON, and thh rest looked
primarily to the majority principle in Cali
fornia, while they aro now quoted as utterly
discarding that principle In Kansas! It is. ,
true that in the one case they pleaded for sla
very, as mainly interested in the majority prin.
.ciple, while in Kansas the minority principle is
essential to the preservation of their peculiar
institution." Judge ,Domatas stood by the
majority in both cases, and Is nobly consistent;
Vat how can a Southern paper object to his
. course now, when all. these Southern leaders
at this moment clamoring for the- minority
lute in. Kansas, demanded that preeisely the
same" guards should be - thrown around Cali
, forDia that are now insisted upon by the
Democrats who oppose the Lecotupton Con,

The Californian papers, files of which we
have received to the 20th ult., continue to agi
tate the question of the seaworthiness of the

line of steamers employed by the Pacific Mail
Steamship company. The bad accommoda

passage in them, are also severely, even an
The popular vote, at last election, recog
nising the State debt of California, was about
being carried into eirect, new bonds being in
preparation under direction of the state Trea
surer. These would be issued, on and after
New Year's day, to those who hold old bonds
of the State. Some doubts having arisen as
to the constitutionality of the law by which
the Debt of the State was Submitted to a Tote
of the people, a ease would immediately be
made, in order to have that question filially
settled by an adjudication in the Supreme
Court. Cad such a course been pursued be
fore the repudiated bonds were originally
issued, a great deal of loss and inconvenience
would have been avoided.
Tho necessity of retrenchment in every de
partment of the State Government is a point
very strongly urged. The San Francisco Her
of November 11, says: "The expenses
must be reduced, not so much as a matter of
justice to tax-payers, as of absolute necessity.
The cortsatutiOnaLlimit bag already been
No more debts can be contracted,

And tit; farmers. Under these circumstances,
it is plain that the expenditures must be kept
within tbu receipts for the future. This is a
fact which should not be lost sight of during
the session of the next Legislature."
Upon the affairs of the Mormons, the reve
lations from California aro most startling.
The San Francisco Herald siys: ‘c The Saints
are 'ln arms, and eager for the fray. Out
lying posts have been established, 'oe moun
tain passes possessed, ambushes planned, and
localities selected in which' to cache the valu
ables of the Mormons. Great Salt Lake City
has been abandoned by its male population ;
the Indian tribes aro in arms, and acting as
picket-guards to the Saints; magazines of pro
visions have been stored, munitions of war
prepared and distributed, and everything has
been converted into a general fund to prose
cute hostilities against the Government. Our
citizens have been waylaid and slain by hun
dreds on the plains, by the Mormons and their
savage allies; others have escaped only by
being in their employ, and supplied with pass
ports from their military chieftains."
Further than this, the head of the Medical
Staff of the Mormon army has proclaimed
that, should the United States troops succeed
in forcing their way into the Mormon settle. ,
clients, measures have already been perfected
to ot burn every city, town, and village in the

that they had the men to do this, who were 'vat

terminate all opposition, and compel obedience
to the laws and the Constitution, is strongly
urged, and the citizens of California are em

THE POSITION OF PARTIES IN KANSAS
The Republican party in Kansas are in open
arms against the action of the Lecompton Con
vention, and determined to put into operation
the Topeka Constitution in opposition to it.
The Democratic party in Kansas have called
a Convention to memorialize Congress to pass•
an act enabling the people of that Territory to
organize a State Government. This is the posi
tion of Judge DOVOLAN.
As to the Lecompton Constitution, it can
scarcelybe said to have a party in its favor in
Kansas. The action of the Convention is con
demned with a degree of unanimity unparal
leled in the political history of any pertion , of
the United States. The whole Democratic
party of Kansas was pledged by its candi
dates, in October last, to favor the submission
of the whole Constitution, and nearly the
entire party is in Aver of adhering to
that pledge. Of twenty papers in Kansas,
but one advocates the Lecompton Con
stitution. All the Democratic papers, (with
one esception,) which have been denounc
ing the Topeka movement, are equally
hostile to the Calhoun contrivance. As near
as we can judge of public sentiment at this
distance, at least nine-tenths of the people in
Kansas are bitterly opposed to the Constitu
tion which the Lecompton Convention has at
tempted to fasten upon them against their will.
All Governments " derive their just powers
from the cunsent of the governed," says the
Declaration of Independence. The governed
in Kansas do not consent to the Calhoun Consti
tution. This is perfectly clear to all. Where,
then, is it to derive its just powers from I We
beara great deal of Et's° positions in these times.
Can there be anything false in a position
which merely demands that a fundamental
truth, which lies at the whole basis of our
Government, should be acknowledged—in a
position which asks that the future State Gov
ernment of Kansas shall possess "just powers"
derived " from the consent of the governed,"
and not merely unjust powers derived from
other and less reliable sources I

The greater number of citizens condemn the
fillibusterism of General Walker, and believe
with Mr. Buchanan that alt such enterprises
complicate and embarrass the vital interests of
the country involved in our foreign relations.
Notwithstanding this, the news that Walker had
landed himself and forces at Punta Arenas,
without molestation, was received with a feeling
much akin to delight. •

faction by Mr. Ouseley, the Braid' Minister to

with groat quietness and enjoyment during the

whole affair with a complacency that goes far to
substantiate the rumor that there Is an under

Banks and Steadman are not content with their
- succe;s over Wendell in securing the Rouse
printing, but now endeavor to secure also the
Senate printing. There are some buff a dozen
candidates for this position of Senate printer. I

in a single year would seem to afford some ground
