1866, and has now been over four years in ex

establishment of a daily Republican newspaper

GEO. BgIiGNER, 8c CO.
Harritiburg, Nov. 23d, 1860.
dr EDITORS of NEWSPAPERS who insert the
shove and call the attention of their readers to
the prospectus, will receive the Daily in es-
Kentucky for the Union.
The resolutions passed the other day at
s county meeting, irrespective of party, in
Fayette county, Ky., exhibit very clearly
the position of that State. Occupying a
central position in the Confederacy, Ken
tucky is shutout from intercourse with the
world, except through the surrounding
States. She is therefore dependent upon
the Union for the right of exportation and
importation, for the right of ingress and
sego e3s; and being exposed for seven hun
dred miles to a free State border, she is
dependent upon the Union for security in
the possession of her slaves, and for the
protection of her people from civil war.
In the opinion of the meeting, as express
ed by resolutions, "the permanent mann
am of the Union and the ultimate peace
ful and profitable existence of slavery in
the Southern States depends upon the
continuance of the barrier which the bor
der slave States now afford them against
Northern aggression. In view of these
great interests Kentucky is compelled to
maintain the Union, and she appeals to
the South, as a brave and chivalrous peo
ple, to stand by the Union as the only
/ope for the preservation of our great na
,tional prosperity, and the preservation in
peace of our Southern inptitutiono."
South Carolina's Past History.
A reference to the past history of South
Carolina will show that she took more de
cided steps towards secession thirty years
ago than she has taken thus far in the
present emergency. If it is LINCOLN'S
election that drives her to secession now,
it was JACKSON'S administration that in
cited her to disunion in 1832 If the
people are blameable now for supporting
LINCOLN, they were no less so then in
supporting JACKSON. If the South Caro
lina disunionists spout treason and abuse
LINCOLN, it is not likely that they can
excel their own performances in that line
against JACKSON and the Union in 1832.
Here is a specimen of the tone and spirit
of the South Carolina papers and orators
on the reception of JACKSON'S famous
proclamation. Their bluster did no harm
then, and it will be equally harmless now.
When "Old Abe" comes into power, the
treason plotters will find him to be as
prompt and determined in maintaining
"the Union, the Constitution and the
Laws," as was the lion-hearted JACKSON.
Here are the extracts referred to, as pub
lished in one of our Southern Union ex
[From the Charleston Mercury, Dec. 17, 1832.]
The declaration of war made by Andrew Jack
eon against the State of South Carolina, occupies
to-day - the larger portion of our columns. It
will be read with the feelings which so extra
ordinary a document is calculated to excite.—
This unhappy old man has been suffered by his
advisers to arrogate the power to coerce a State
of the Confederacy. He has issued the edict of
a dictator—an edict which time will• prove
whether he dares or can enforce. He has at
tempted in this proclamation to intimidate the
Whigs of South Carolina by threats, and to
encourage and foment insurrection and violence
on the part of the internal enemies of the State.
This document was received here yesterday,
and greeted with the indignation and contempt
which it merits. In every freeman worthy of
the name it has excited no other feelings but
those of defiance and scorn. Recreants will hail
it as a brave blow to the cause of treason.
[From the Charleston Mercury, Deo. 19, 18821
The crisis for which every intelligent and
resolute Carolinian Whig has long been pre
pared is come. The efficacy of our remedy has
been demonstrated. We were told it would be
inefficient ; it has proved so potent that an in
furiated administration has been compelled, in
despair of otherwise beating us, to resort to
brute force. We have always said that our
remedy was of right peaceful ; we never said
that it would necessarily be peaceful ; it is al
ways in the power of a bad man to outrage
right by violence, if unrestrained by principle
or a fear of consequences personal to himself.
General Jackson has not furnished the first ex
ample. There has been a Caesar, a Cromwell
and a .Bonaparte—men of towering genius—
who have stooped to play the usurper. Why
may not an inferior spirit without as much
heart as either, and with none of their genius,
aspire to imitate them in those actions of their
lives, which he alone can imitate, because they

the edict of a tyrant ; and if they were for war,
he was ready, and it behooved all- the citizens
of the State to meet the storm with becoming
manliness. He, for one, never would submit—
if driven from the seaboard, he was for carrying
on the war in the interior—if driven from the
interior, he was for a guerilla warfare in the
mountains, and if at last compelled to yield, he
would die contending to the last drop of blood
he had, to sustain the ordinance and the au
Southern vs. Northern Aggressions.
Those who say most about "Northern
aggressions upon Southern rights," say
nothing about the constitutional laws and
practices at the South, involving the
rights and liberties of citizens of the
North. It is an undeniable fact that in
at least four or five of the Southern States
freedom of speech is practically denied.
It would hardly be too much to say that
freedom of thought is almost denied in
them. For every week we hear of their
citizens expelling men whose sole offences
are a Northern birth and a belief, more
or less strong, in those free principles
which are cherished in the North. These
unconstitutional attacks upon Northern
men are not of recent Origin. They have
not been made merely in the heat of the
excitement which now prevails. But for
a long time we have been hearing of them.
Almost every steamer from the South has
brought home some victim of Southern
intolerance. There was practically no
protection for Northern men in those vio
lent States. Every traveler has been at
the mercy of a mob. We need not now
sit down to calculate the value to us of a
Union in which, while innocent, we are
subjected to •personal insults and violence,
and can find neither a safeguard against
them nor_redress for them.
The Right of Seoession
The right of a State to secede from the
Union would appear to have been consid
ered and decided by the framers of the
Constitution. New York was unwilling
to accept that instrument and join the
Union which it created, unless she could
terminate her connection with it at pleas
ure. Her proposal was to join 'for five or
six years, with the right then to withdraw
if she desired. Gen. HAMILTON was for
a time inclined to favor this proposition,
and he wrote to Mr. MADISON in regard
to it, in July, 1788. This was MADisoN's
NEw Yoxs, Sunday Evening

Ireservation of a right to withdraw, if amend
ments be not decided on under the form of the
Constitution within a certain time, is a condi

York a member of the new Union, and conse
quently that she should not be received on that
plan. Compacts must be reciprocal ; this prin
ciple would not in such case be preserved. The
Constitution requires an adoption in iota and voauvia.
It has been so adopted by the other States. 'An
adoption for a limited time would be as defec
as an adoption of some of the articles only.
In short, any condition whatever must vitiate
the ratification. What the new Congress, by
virtue of the power to admit new States, may
be able and disposed to do in such a case, I do
not inquire, and I suppose that is not the ma

and "adopted the Constitntion in toto, and
FOREVER," as did all the other States.
• It is a significant and cheering fact that
the vote for LINCOLN in the slave-holding-
States is more than twenty times as great
as the vote for FREMONT four years since.
The party has now attained a permanent
foothold in the South, and will steadily
and rapidly increase there. It is not too
much to predict that by the time another
Presidential election comes round, there
will be Republican States at the South as
well as at the North. Thus far the Re
publican vote is largest in cities and towns
whose commercial transactions with the
North open the way fora better political
understanding of us, and a removal of un
founded prejudices against us. The fol

From the Federal Capital. •
WASHINGTON, December 3
Among the various propositions, with a view
of quieting the present political evils is one
proposing that the representatives of all the
southern States—South Carolina excepted—
have a Conference and prepare a list of their
grievances, and what will satisfy them, as a
remedy. This is to be submitted to the con
servative Republicans, and if it meets with suf
ficient favor from them, then after the reading
of the Presklent'a message, that part in refer
ence to the political troubles be referred to a
committee of one from each State. This pro
position is discussed to-day. It is said that
several prominent Republicans have already
acquiesced in it.
The Supreme Conrt met in the new chamber
at noon to-day. Chief Justice TANSY, and all
the Associate Justices, except Judge WA:£10),
were present. After the adjournment they pro
ceeded to the White House and personally paid
their respects to the President. They alter
wards left their cards for the Vice President.

PERSONAL LOAMY LAW IN is a
little remarkable that Virginia has a personal
liberty law. It enacts that any person, con
ceiving himself to be unlawfully detained as a
slave, is authorized to sue for his freedom.
Such person, during the pendency of the suit,
must be kept in custody at the expense of the
person claiming to be the owner. Or the claim
ant may take the custody of such person on
giving bonds, in a penalty double the value of
the petitioner ($1000), by the fugitive slave
law, to have him forthcoming on the trial.
Counsel is assigned the petitioner by the State
to prosecute his suit, and he is allowed free of
cost, all needful process, services of officers,
and attendance of witnesses. The suit has pre
cedence of all other cases on the docket of the
and the question of freedom or slavery is to be
tried by a jury. If the petitioner obtains a
verdict in his favor he is to be declared free,

would seem to be a model community, and one

with him by affinity or consanguinity, settles
down, and nobody is allowed to come nearer
than a quarter of a mile of this enclosure; that
is his claim, and he is protected in his possession
by the laws of the nation, as though it were
his in fee simple. Merchants, mechanics, pro
fessional men, machinists, &c., are allowed to
live there by permit from the Council, but no
one is allowed to produce anything more than
is necessary for the use of hfmself and family
ourside of his trade or profession. Not a drop
of spirituous liquors is allowed to be given
away, or transported through the Nation ; and
all that is found by the officer is poured out,
and if found in any wagon, water-craft, or on
