KENTUORY STANDS FlRM.—Kentucky

Tennessee, indicate a conservative senti

save the Republic. Kentucky has the

New York and Virginia
Governor Morgan, of New York, com
municated to the Legislature of that State
on Thursday the series of resolutions
adopted by the Legislature of Virginia
several clays ago, recommending the ap
pointment of Commissioners by the sever
al States to meet in Washington with a
view of adjusting our present difficulties.
Governor Morgan approves of the sug
gestion of Virginia, and in his message to
the Legislature of New York thus com
mends it to favorable consideration :
"The mass of the people of this State, and of
the entire North, are actuated by an earnest de
sire'that no honorable effort should be left un
tried to maintain, by peaceful means,the Amer
ican Union as it has existed for almost a centu
ry ; and especially to encourage every exertion
made toward an adjustment.of existing differ
ences by the loyal States.
"Holding sentiments in full harmony, as I
do, With these purposes, and with a view to the
consideration of such measures as may eventu
ate in securing to the citizens of Slaveholding
and Non-slaveholding States such mutual guar
antees as will fully protect the right of each, I
recommend the appointment of a corresponding
number of citizens of this State, in whose
character and patriotism the people shall have
full confidence, with a view of meeting, in the
same spirit which prompted these resolutions (
the representatives of Virginia, and of such
other States as may be there present, for the
consideration- of the objects indicated in the
resolutions herewith submitted.
"And it may not be improper, in the present
threatening attitude of National affairs, to res
pectfully call your attention to the importance
of every step taken in connexion with our Fed
eral relations. Acting both as trustees of the
past and guardians of the interests'of the fu
ture, we should remember that history,holdiog
us to our responsibilities, will record our acts,
not with the band of prejudice or of favor,but
with. calm impartiality. Let us, therefore, con
sider with- care our duty in the present emer
gency, and be ready to perform, fearlessly and
conscientiously, - the duties which our respective
positions have imposed upon us."
ANOTHER LETTER FROM MAJOR AN
DERSON.—Major Anderson was invited to
the grand Masonic festival to be given
by the Masonic Fraternity in Albany, on

very great that he would leave Fort Sum

pose,,but the Committee secured an auto
graph letter, which runs as follows :
Permit me to express the gratification your
Union-loving sentiments have given me. The
time is at hand when all who love the glorious
Union, under whose flag the country has won
the admiration of the civilized world, shall
show themselves good and true men. Our fel
low-countrymen in this region have decided to
raise another flag. I trust in God that wisdom
and forbearance may be`given - by Him to our
rulers, and that this severance may not be
"cemented in blood." •

balk of the deficit in the Post Office De
partment occurs in the Southern. States,
and the suspension of the postal service
in the seceding States will afford great
relief to the federal treasury. While the
New England States in 1859 paid a nett
profit to the Post Office Department of
867,557'07, the seven Cotton States—
South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ala

we should think the Administration would
not hesitate to abolish all the post routes
through those unprofitable as well as un
grateful States. Mail facilities have al
ready been denied to the city of Pensacola,

Southern States in rebellion against the

THE 'UNION MEETING AT NASHVILLE.
At the grand Union meeting in Nashville,
speeches were made by John Hugh
Smith, Esq., Governor W. B. Campbell,
Governor H. S. Foote, R. J. Meigs, Esq.,
and Dr. Thos. R. Jennings, successively.
Mr. Crittenden's proposition was approved
by acclamation. Captain Driver offered
the following resolutions, which were
unanimously adopted :--
Resolved, That no act of the Convention of
Tennessee which is not submitted to the peo
ple, to be decided by them at the ballot-box,
shall bind us ; that we will form ourselves into
companies, and resist all such by force of arms.
Resolved, That we approve the patriotic and
manly efforts of the Hon. Andrew Johnson to
preserve the Union, and all our rights within
"PERrsrt ComaimtoE."--This remark,
once made by a celebrated politician,
now appears to indicate the theory of one
of the new republics lately hatched out
"down South." Alabama has but one
seaport—that of Mobile—but it seems
that this has already become one too
many for the flourishing trade of the new
republic. Measures are therefore about
to be taken ,to sink vessels in the ship
channel of that harbor, as they have al•
ready done at Charleston, and thereby
prevent the entry and, departure of com
mercial vessels to and from Mobile. If
they are fools enough to blockade their
own harbor, and save the General Gov
ernment the trouble of doing it, we don't
see who need complain. We will venture
to say that they will soon get tired of this
kind 'orfurt. -a -

man in an sections of the country can draw his
own inference. It is well, too, that a leading
secession journal should thus relieve the Re•
publican party of all responsibility in the pres
ent crisis, as well as deprive the dough-faces at
the North of all further motives for abusing
those who have the courage to assert a
disapproval of the great wrong - which is
being perpetrated at the South. After
such a confession it would. be idle to pro
pose either concession or compromise, and
more than insane to believe that the secession
ists will be satisfied with any proposition or re
sult other than the entire destruction of every
form of. Republican government on this he
misphere. If such a desire, expressed in the
bold language of the Mercury, does net beget
and encourage an irrepressible conflict, nothing
will or can rouse the people of the free States
to a full understanding of our difficulties.
A glance from the gallery of the House at

grand politico-intellectual arena, on which
men struggle for the mastery, and where mind
bears away the palm of victory. The repre

time, finds himself surrounded by a strange

vided by party and geographical lines, and
singular, because each representative is intent

can only distinguish himself—that is, he be

The man thus conspicuous on the floor is not
the man who keeps the machinery of legisla

looks after the business of Congress--he is
merely known as a speaker, and to that class of
men, those eternally engaged in talkidg, the
country is indebted for its present confusion
and future gloomy confusion.
From the gallery this morning I could not
desist from making a loose observation of one
of the aristocracy, who has been creating as
much sensation throughout I!etinsylvania and

FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Correspondence of the Dally Telegraph
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 1861
Whin William H. Seward announced the
idea of an 'lrrepressible conflict, he elicited a howl
of disapproval which nearly resulted in his
own hunt of death. The doctrine was not only
denounced as dangerous, but those who at
tempted explain any of the positions of Gov.
Seward on this subject, were immediately de
nounced as Black Republicans. It seems now, how
ever, that this doctrine of an irrepressible conflict
has become one of the favorite arguments of
the advocates of secession to sustain their trea
son. It affords them the clue to rhetoric and
a reason for their designs to destroy our form
of republican government, and is thus descant
ed upon by the Charleston Mercury of the 18th
" The social and political organization of the .
South is, in all respects, theoretically, and prac
tically, different and opposed to that of the
North. Southern. institutions are essentially
conservative. It recognizes distinct order and
classes. It establishes them.. One-third of the
whole Southern population do not cast a single
vote. They are disfranchised. They are not
recegnized as citizens of the several States.
They are slaves. In South Carolina one half
the population of the State are in this catego
ry. The distinctive feature of South Carolina
is its conservatism in all things—its obedience
to its laws : its law and order ; its respect for
authority, divine and human. Southern socie
ty is unquestionably of an aristocratic cast.—
Every white mut is of a favored class. He is,
among others around him, 'a Roman citizen.'
Feeling his own authority, he recognizes that
which he has established. As a great political
philosopher, Burke defines it, he yields 'a proud
submission and dignified obedience.' Through
habit, association, and education, it becomes his
second nature. Southern society individualizes
men. Northern society conglomerates, cen
"They are two distinct systems of political
organization, bated on two radically different
theories of golernment. Hence Mr. Seward is
quite right when he says there exists between
them 'an irrepressible conflict.' They are in
direct conflict, one with the other. It is,there
fore, quite impossible to conceive how, under
one ballot-box, the two can co-exist in one gov
ernment. Men - may theorize that if the North
would adhere to the Constitution there would
be no difficulty. They beg the question. The
if is in opposition to the nature of things. Men
cannot be moulded, in their inherent nature,
to our wills. There are certain laws which
will always govern them.
"Under the existing Union the theory and
institutions of ionthern society, or that of
Northern society, will eventually give way.
For both to exist, continneand work out their
own ends, they must be separated.
"If there existed no other reason, policy and
theory alike would demand that the Southern
people should be a separate). independent peo
I want the Northern, and particularly the
Pennsylvania reader,to peruse and ponder these
paragraphs as containing the real sentiment
and objects of secessionary revolution, viz : be
cause the Southern aristocracy cannot longer exist un
der the rule of a ballot box in which the mud sills of
the North exercise, with thent,eguat and often superior
power. Even at this extended juncture of af

Mr. BIGLIM, (Pa.,) presented several memo

was a memorial representing fift_y_thousand

from anxiety for the safety of the Union, but
in no way countenancing disunion, yet willing
to yield any thing reasonable to the South, ex
pressing the belief that the resolutions of the
Senator from Kentucky are eminently just and
wise. He moved that the memorial be printed.
Mr. CannaioN (Pa) said that he also had pe
titions representing the workingmen of Phila
delphia, but expressing different sentiments.
He referred , to the speech of his colleague and
said that he bad been charged with endorsing
his speech. Certainly he never endorsed the
whole of it, but he was willing to do anything
to bring peace and safety to the country ; but
he first wanted to know if what he did would
be reciprocated; if it would bring back the
leaders of the rebellion in the South, for he
considered it rebellion.
Mr. MASON, (Va.,) said that the Senators from
Pennsylvania had expressed their willingness
to make concessions. The Southern States
have not asked concession in any forth. The
South has no complaint of the Constitution, but
that the Constitution has been violated and
their rights disregarded. They never asked for
concession, but only asked that the Constitu

be humiliated if they asked anything else, and
the North humiliated if they granted. They
only asked their rights.
Mr. Rum, N. H., said be had been listening
since the commencement of . the session for
exactly such a sensible speech as the gentle
man from Virginia had just made. ,He thought
from this announcement of the Senator that
there was still some prospect for the Union.
On this subject the Senator from Virginia had
expressed the very sentiments that he (Mr.

-warmer than the West Indies to procure a sample of the
beauty of Proserpine in a box. Atter some delay the

Fortunately hope was hand in the bottom of the box.

'of the story, for it invigorates the blood, aids the organs
or digestion, imparts strength to the nervous system, and
