Wednesday Afternoon, February 18, 1861.
PRESIDENT LINCOLN COMING.
The Committee appointed on behalf of
the Legislature will meet President LIN
COLN at Pittsburg to-morrow, where he is.
expected to arrive, and we have no doubt
that final arrangements will then be made
by which he will arrive here on the 22d
of this month. Preparations are already
in progress for his proper reception and
entertainment by our citizens generally,
without respect to party.
A Howl from Alabama.
Jeremiah Clemens, ox-Senator from
Alabama, has written a letter to a friend
since the secession of his State, expressing
dolorous foreboding of the result of re
volution. In the Secession Convention,
before the adoption of the ordinance, Mr.
Clemens warned his colleagues that the
act they were about to commit was trea
son, and that, if unsuccessful, it, would
subject them to all the pains and penal
ties of that highest of 'all political crimes.
He announced that he voted for the or
dinance under solemn protest. In his
last letter he indulges in these mournful
reflection,s after the deed is date:
" We are out; we have bid adieu to the stars
and stripes, and abandoned the high privilege
of calling ourselves American citizens. lam
not ashamed to confess that I could not restrain
my tears when the old banner which I have
followed through so many dangers was torn
down, and the flag of Alabama was raised in
its place; I cannot restrain them now when I
am writing; but the deed is done---a new era
has dawned, and all that I can promise is that
no effort shall be spared on my part to prevent
it from becoming an era of disgrace. Ifs we are
not already- involved in a war we soon will be.
Titre is no hope of peace, and he is but little
better than a madman who dreams of a long
exemption from invasion. I shall meet it
when it comes as a soldier should, and fight
through it as long as a hope remains ; when
everything is lost, as I fear it may be, unless
wiser counsels should prevail than those which
have heretofore directed us, I shall drag my
body to the nearest battle field, and lay down a
life which has lost its value."
UNION SENTIMENT OF NORTH CAROLI
NA.-A letter from Mr. Gilmer, member
of the House from North Carolina, ap
pealing for compromise, contains the fol
lowing striking passages:—
The free States now number eighteen, the
alavelitates only fifteen. The free States have
majorities in both Housei of Congress ' and - these
majorities soon to be increased. The free States
have the surplus population to settle and make
free States out of the Territories. The slave
States have no surplus. Comnion sense ought
to teach the people of the free States that the
chances are all on their side. They very well
know that if they were to grant all that the
slave States request, the laws of cliniate soil
and productions will settle the question at last;
that'the result will be precisely the same under
any of the theories about which the politicians
of the two sections have each other so much by
0 0 0 We have only to have the people
—the industrious masses—look at these ques
tions practically and in their proper bearings,
and they will at once have this quarrel settled,
and the great ship of State again floating at
ease and in safety.
I would have them at once pull up' their
stakes and come pitch their tents around Wash
ington, and command their representatives to
adjust the difficulties which now divide the two
great powerful sections.
Honest Talk About Secession.
In the subjoined'expressions of regret
at the decree of the Georgia Convention
in pronouncing a formal severance of the
borid which unites that State with her
sisters under the Federal Constitution,
we- have the 'evidence of a sentiment
which we are assured would be confessed
by , a majority of the Georgia people if
only thb question of Union or Disunion
could be distinctly and directly brought
before them. We quote from the La
grange (Geo.) Reporter of a late date :
"The deed is done ! Our rights. are—not se
cured / We have been fled and drummed—and
voted out of the Union. We still love the Union.
We love our old Government, because it was
established by the strong arms , and the blood
of as true men as the world ever saw. We
never did have' any war to make on the Govern
ment, but always regarded it as a priceless in
heritance bequeathed to us by our Revolutionary
fathers, and we have adored the Union of the
States because that Union was formed and ce
mented by their blood. We have given them
up and have now left the sacred chambers of
our fathers. The action of Georgia may be right,
and it may be wrong."
THE I,IAIIGURATION UNION BALL AT

Last summer the Democratic party al
lowed itself to be split in two and its
union dissolved at Charleston and Balti
more rather than grant a slave code for
the territories. Yet the politicians of this
same party are now encouraging Southern
treason by demanding that the Constitu
tion shall be mutiliated by having Crit
tenden's slave-code tacked on to it. These
dirty politicians contend that this slave
code, which the Douglas doughfaces re
fused even to put in a Democratic plat 7
form at Charleston, shall be made part of
the Constitution of the United States, or
disunion shall be permitted to do its worst.
Unless this be done they openly „assert
their determination to back the rebels
with their sympathies, Their money and
their arms . ! Such is the patriotism of
the politicians. With the people it is dif
ferent. Men who have not become cor
rupt and mercenary speak in different
terms. They say that this Government
was built by the shedding of the blood of
thousands, of as good men as ever lived—
that it is the best and freest government
that ever existed, and must not and shall
not be destroyed without a struggle.—
They are ready to pledge their lives and
all that they have for its perpetuity.
FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL
Correspondence' of the Daily Telegraph,
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 1861
Tennessee has responded to Virginia, by
nobly sustaining the -canoe of the country and
the Union. The election in both States indi
cates more than a mere' devotion to the Union
of American States. It portrays a people's
adherence to principles, at a time when their
prejudices and passions are sought to be aroused
by the demagogues in their midst and the fana
tics abroad, who, under the guise of professed
humanity and religion, are.yet the bitter foes
of a union and reciprocity ty which the sub
lime lessons and truths are inculcated and sus
tained. The/noble decision of the masses of
Tennessee was produced as much by the rancor
and precipitancy of the people of the Cotton
States, as by the manly frankness and noble
conciliation of the masses from the Middle
States. The course and assurances of such
men as Simon Cameron in the Senate,
had much to do with the result in Tennes
see. It gave, to the Union men in that
Commonwealth a starting point and fur
nished them with the very weapons with
which they have so completely demolished the
secessionists. When Simon Cameron declared
that he and the people of his State were will
ing to meet the people of the South on- fair
ground—that they were willing to do-them
justice where a wrong was perpetrated—and
that they regarded this Union as inestimably
more important thari.any of the issues now di
viding parties, it awakened the sympathies and
admiration of the people of the border States - ;
and the elections in Virginia and Tennessee are
part of the resiilt of these noble expressions
and manly invitations to peace. With such
words to quote, as uttered by Senator Camer
on, Andrew - Johnson could assure Ids constitu
ency. that the object of the Republican
party was neither aggressive to -the South
or a. direct interference with its peculiar
institution . ; but having constitutionally tri
umphed, it was the duty of every good citi
zen to insist not only on the inauguration
of Mr. Lincoln, tut to sustain him in all his
efforts to vindicate and enforce the laws. The
'shrewd men of the North must see the utter
impolicy of driving the conservative sentiment
of the South into a eripPort of the last mea
sores adopted at Charleston and Montgomery;
and seeing ;this, they .must be satisfied, after
the election in Tennessee and Virginia, that
Senator Cameron's course during the impend
ingot:lsis has been both sagacious and correct.
The good that he has produced in giving Penn
sylvania so much influence in the settlement of
our difficulties; will be discovered hereafter,
when Pennsylvania. asks for legislation from
the States she - has preserved from revolution
and ruin. Added to this; it has given to Re
peblicitnism in, the Southwest a tone and a
'tempe'r which it has never before possessed,
and which must gather to its ranks the ablest
business and professional men iMthat region.
I have just'seen a telegraphic dispatch from
Montgomery,. Ala., to the effect that South
Carolina.objects to the election of Davis and
Stephens, for President`and Tice President„re
votively, of the Southern Confederacy: Both
these gentlemen are imfavor of areconstruction,
(so this dispatch alleges,) and for thit3 reason
the Palmetto people protest against their elect_
ion. South Carolina will Submit
. to nothing
but absolute , and, eternal separation from her
benefactors, and therefore resists every propo
sition to re-adjust or forever settle the difficulty
WO which the precipitancy of that State 'alone
has plunged the nation. She now declares her de
termination to secede from the Southern Con
and make it a test whether they shall
compel her to join in the uncertainty and share
the responSibility of her own creation. Thus
early has South Carolina shown her dispositicin
to rule or `ruin in the new, as she did in the
:old - Union, and unless the State is placed under
strict surveillance, I would not be astonished if
she yet- accomplished -thee onfusion of the

THE FLYING ARTILLERY quartered at
Washington are very objectionable to
Gov. Wise's Secession Army, the latter
being only calculated to act as Infantry.
Taking possession of undefended build
ings is one thing, but marching up such
a long straight street as Pennsylvania
Avenue in the teeth of a battery which
fires twenty times in a minute, is quite
another and different one. When Wash
ington planned the Federal City, it
was remarked by one of. his officers that
no capital in the world was so admirably
arranged for the dispersal of a mob by
Cavalry or Cannon. The traitors who are
striving to undo all Washington's work,
execrate this as much as the rest. Gen.
Scott, however, appreciates and avails
himself of it.

I have spoken but once before this in Cincin

Presidential election. On that occasion, in a
playful manner, but with sincere words, I ad
dressed much of whit I Said to the Kentuckians.
I gave my opinion that we, as Republicans,
would ultimately beat them as Democrats, but
that they could postpone that result longer by
nominating Senator Douglas for the Presidency
than they could in any other way. They tlid
not, in any-true sense of the word, nominate
Mr. Douglas, and the result has come certainly
as soon as ever I expected. I also told them
how I 'eirpected they would . be treated after
they should have been beaten_, and I now wish
to call their attention to what I then said :
"When we do, as we say we will, beat you,
you, perhaps, want to know what we will do
with. yon.: I will tell you, as far as lam au=
thorized to speak for the Opposition, what we
mean to do with yob. We mean to treat you
as near as we-possibly can as Washington, Jef
ferson and Madison treated you. We mean to
leave you alone, and in no way to interfere
with your institutions—to abide by all and
every compromise of the Constitution. In
a word—coming back to the original pro
position—to treat you, so far as degenerate
men—if we have degenerated—may, accord
ing to the example of those noble fathers—
Washington, Jefferson and Madison. •We
mean to remember that you are as good as
