“'ill the South Resist?
The following letter from a Georgian to the
Journal of C’vmmcrrr: is written evidently without
any intention of threatening or frightening the
North, and withal in a tone so calm that. it
should be read by every Northern man. While
we cannot concur in many of the reasons ad
vanced in justification of immediate resistance,
in case of Lincoln’s election, we are not blind
to the indications of danger that the South will
resort. to defensive measures. This danger in
far more imminent than Northern men dare to
realize. Revolution and civil war may over
take us while. we are reposing in fatal security.
The reality of the danger cannot be contro
vex-ted by the smears of the Republican press
whenever this subject is mentioned; but this
tone of reckless levity displays :1 deep-seated
sectional animosity which tends to increase
It. is agreed by this writer that it. would he l
the height. of madness to delay action until
Republicanism had absorbed all the powers of
the government, so as to render resistance on
the part of the South futile. This idea- proceeds
npon the supposition that the Republican party
will remian a compact organization, advancing
steadily to the practical realization of the ultra.
Abolition doctrines promulgated by its leaders
—that the object. of the party is to render the
South powerless in the government and fi
nally to abolish slavery in the States. But
this view strikes us as erroneous, from the
fact that the Republican party is composed of
dissimilar elements= which will war with each
other as soon as the patronage of the govern—
ment is distributed; and this internal conflict
will deprive it of power to push forward any of
its aggressive measures: and finally compel it
to assume some new and less dangerous shape,
or expose it to the assaults of the conservative
parties of the country. It appears to us not.
only probable but the next thing-to certain that
Republicanism will culminate and decline as
rapidly asit has risen, if the South will con
sent to unite with the conservatives of the
North in resisting its measures within the lim
its of the Constitution. The following is the
communication :
' AEGIISTA,GE., Oct. 19.
To the Editors of the Journal of Commerce:
The result of the late elections in Pennsylvania, Ohio
and Indian: have made a. profound impression upon the
Southern mind. Whilst we generally believed that
Lincoln would be elected, yet some faint hope was in
dulged by man} that Pennsylvania, at least, would come
to the rescue of the Constitution and the Union. This
hope has been dissipated. und now Lincoln’s election is
universally conceded. We have ceased to discuss the
relative merits of Bell, or Breckinridge, 01' Douglas.-
All feel and admit that the success of either of these
gentlemen would only postpone for a shorttime the grim];
issue which the people of the South have to meet. How
should they meet it is now the problem which mostly
engrosses the public mind. The only remedy we have
over hen-d luggcsted in resistance, at an y and every haz
ard. Those who oppose this suggest no other remedy
for the impending evil. .
The suggestion has been thrown out by some of our
Northern friends, that Lincoln will probably be in a
minority in the next Congress, and will, therefore, be
powerless for harm. But this suggestion makes little
impression, for we well know that by the new apportion
ment the Republican party will gain largely, whilst the
Sent]; will become weaker- “"2 also know that the
Senate is rapidly becomingnbolitionized—Bigler, Pugh,
Fitch and Lane must give place, on the next 4111 March,
to four Republicans. In the meanwhile. all the free
States, through government patronage, and the steady
growth of anti-slavery sentiment, (fostered as it would
be by Southern submission) will become more and more
hostile to our institutions. It is argued by our people
that it would be the height of madness to delay action
until Republicanism had absorde all the powers of the
government, and rendered all resistance to their destruc
tive policy futile.
It is said generally at the North, and by some few of
the South, that resistance is imnroper, because Lincoln
will be elected under all the prop‘cr Constitutional forms,
This fact seems to have very little weight with our peo
ple. We know that the Constitution provides for its
own amendment, when three-fourths of the States shall
concur. The addition of a. few um". two States will
constitute the majority necessary to oholish Slavery
throughout the land. Does any one but u demented Aba
litionist believe, for a moment, that such umuncudment
would not be utterly subversive of the spirit of the Con.
stitution, and justify resistance ? So we deem Mr. Lin
coln’s election, though in accordance with Constitu
lions] forms, uviulntiou of the spirit of the Corlhtitu~
tion, because the pnr‘y which he leads avows purposes
which are utterly subversive of that sacred instrument.
suppose that the Senate should refuse to ratify any nom—
ination made by Lincoln, or the House of Representa
tives refuse to vote any supplies, would they not keep
within the letter of the Constitution ? yet what u howl
would go up, and justly, to", from the Republican (jump.
So. then, a. compliance with the forms of law may be so
managed as to ptOTe utterly subversive of all the ends
for which government is established
It is a mistake, quite common in the North, to sup
pose that all the disunionists are for llreckinridge ; and
the quiet submission of the South is argued from this
fact. Bell meny Douglas men, are equally hostile to
Lincoln’s clec'ion. and in proportion to numbers, are
equally determined upon resistant“. What the State
0: Georgia. will do in the cunt or Lincoln‘s election,
we are not now prepared to say ; but men who are
usually WBll posted in our State political matters, say
she will undoubtedly resist. Our L“gisl:\ture meetson
the first Monday in November. and will doubtless call u
convention to detprmiue upon her course. Alalmnm. has
My proVlded for such u. contingellcy,and will doubt
less be foliou'ed by MiSSISSHIDi, Texas. Florida. and
probably other States. The North may rest assured
a“: South Carolina Will prommly secede, if one other
State will join. In all probability, she will do no, if
necessary, alone. If she should secede. nothing short
of divine interposition can prevent further secessiuns~
and if any attempt is made to coerce her, all the ‘= cog.
mu States” will certainly follow. It IS a. fact worth
remembering that no man in Georgia: would venture,
except in private way, 1:0 WEEK‘S! fioercwn; and ninety
nine of every hundred of our citizens, whatever they
might think of the policy of her course, would not
stand by, and see her subdued by federal pourer. .

Can Lincoln be Defeated '2
Our-impression, since the result of the election
in this State, has been that the chances of
defeating the election of LINCOLN were almost.
hopeless : and we have not hesitated to express
that conviction, believing that. it was better to
prepare for the worst than to hold out any
delusire expectations. We cannot concur in
the policy of affecting a confidence we do not
feel, for the purpose of bringing out the vote.
Such a course is not only' attended with a cer
tain degree of personal degradation, but it has
a. tendency to impair the confidence of the
readers of a newspaper in its sincerity, and to
detract. from the force of honest convictions.
But while. the election of Lincoln has appeared
to us highly probable, we are not entirely with
out. a, reasonable hope that these gloomy antici
potions may not be fulfilled ; and we would not.
have any Democrat relax his efforts to secure
the defeat of the Republican party. It would
add immeasurably to our regret if, after the 1
election, it should turn out. that, Lincoln only 1
carried this State by a few thousands, and that ‘
he might have been defeated with proper efforts. ‘
Democrats should always have the courage to l
labor for the right, and to deserve success if ‘
they cannot command it. Perhaps our pros- ‘
trating defeat in this State has led us to take
too gloomy a view of the prospect. We observe
with pleasure that the Pennsylvania election‘
has not. dampened ti‘e ardor of the Democrats
and Union men of the State of New York, and
that they are laboring zealously in the good
cause, with high hopes of administering to the
Republican party a fatal check. We should try
to strengthen their hands in this work. We can
do better than to stand by as mere spectators
of the conflict in that State. We are no longer
in the van of the battle—hut we can encourage
those that are by our sympathy ; and, above
all, by our zeal in the cause of union against
Lincoln. To win the battle in New York there
must be a thorough union of all the conserva
tive elements _: and union in Pennsylvania tends
to content a closer union in New York. In order
to show our readers how gallantly the true men
of New York are contesting the field with the
enemy, we publish the following encouraging
article from the Journal of Conn/Mire, a news
paper that is not in the habit of manufacturing
spurious enthusiasm for political effect :
WHAT IS Wursn I'o Exsnm: LISCOI.S’S Dunn—An
erroneous impression appears to have. taken possession
of the minds of many anti-Lincoln men in and out of
this State, respecting the chances for carrying New
York against Lincoln at the November election. The
divisions and difl'erences among the anti-Lincoln men,
in the early part of the campaign, led to the belief that
the State was lost; and themi‘dre. in all the estimates
and calculations upon the Presidential question. the
thirty-five votes of New York have been set down in
favor of the “mil-splitting” candidate. ' This will never
do. The chances in this state are by no means so des
perate as many have supposed; and we beg leave to as
sure our readers, that it is entirely possible to prevent
its electoral vote from being mat for the Republican
The impression: which gained possession of the public
mind in the early stages of the campaign, were natural
enough under the circumstances. but are by no means
justified at the present time. Then, the anti-Lincoln
men had separate tickets in the field. and their olforts
were quite as much against each other as against the
common enemy.' Now, this entire strength is concen
trated upon one. electoral lirket. The Republicans never
had a majority of the vote of New York State, and if
proper exen ions are made, they will not have a majority
in this election. They are positively and unquestiona
bly in a minority of all the votes in the State. The
only question is, shall the vote be brought out, so as to
secure a. full expression of the sentiments of the electors.
If this can be. done, New York will rule for the Union.
ticket, and Lincoln will be defeated. ‘
The Tribune, whose senior editor has been perambu
lnting the State, making Lincoln harangues, sums up
his obst-rvations in the extravagant estimate of 70,000
for Lincoln North and West of Albany N 0 such result
is probable. But taking his own est-himlefar that section.
tgfllw Statewet Lincoln mu be beaten by thousands. The
majority against Fremont in the counties excepted from
Greeley’s estimate was about eighty thousand; and even
if the Northern and Wrstern counties give Lincoln
70.000, which we by no means believe, the combined
vote against him in New York city and the island and
river counties will be such as to consign him to an igno
minious defeat. The only doubt about the result in
New York is: whether a- full vote shall be polled. Thut
done, and the Republicans will be‘defeuted, and the
country saved from the calamity of their politiculdomi
nation for four years to come.
What we want, then, to ensure success. is faith. and
works. Let the anti—Lincoln man at the "State believe
in the possibility of success, and act accordingly. This,
and this only: is required to srwe the country from the
worst evils which e-m befall it. Let us quit. wrangling
and go to work. There is but 11 fortnight left for ac
tion, but. rim} is quite sufficient to achieve a victory
more lit-inhuman any recorded in our politiCul annals.
Let such 0!: ctions as Brady’s State ticket be re
moved, and a. concentration of alert upon the electoral
and State tickets be made, with a determination to
march up to Albany with enough majority to annihi
late the boasted 70,000 of the Republicans, and a few
thousand to spare. And then let the Union nxen North
and West of Albany prove the falsity of Republican
estimates, by reducmg Lincoln’s majority in their sec
tion to one-half the figures so ostentatiously paraded in
his behalf. What say the anti-Lincoln men of Central
andWestcm New York 1' Will they meet us even—their
minority to be no greater than our majority .’

The shock of earthquake on the 113th inst.., was
very violent at Quebec. In many cases men.
women and children rushed from itheir dwel

was shaken down and the jointings of wooden
buildings opened The Quebec Gazette says :
“ At. the Martello towers, on the plains, the
effect was very great, old soldiers resident in
them stating that. the shock exceeded in inten
sity those experienced by them in the East and
West Indies. At Beauport Asylum all the in
mates that could ran out of the building, while
those who had not such opportunities ran
shrieking through the wards and corridors. In
several rooms the plaster was shaken down, and
strong joints were forced open by the motion
given to the building. It is also reported that
the lighthouse at L’islet has been partially
fractured by the shock. At Lorette, doors
were shaken from their places, and crockery in
cupboards smashed to pieces. At Point Levi
the motion of the earth was violently felt, and
fear and terror prevailed everywhere. On the
river, too, the trembling, vibratory motion was
communicated to' the shipping.”
A Mrs’remons OurnAGH—Ayoung ladywho
had been attending a. religous meeting at Ober

of the principal streets, about seven o’clock in
the evening, as she was going to her residence.
The assault was committed by a. man, who, for
the purpose of making sure of his object, used
a large club. The screams of the young lady
reached the ears of some of the residents of the
neighborhood, who immediately proceeded to
the place. They found a. lady’s glove upon the
sidewalk, with spots of blood,‘ but neither the
perpetrator of the outrage nor the young lady
were to be seen. Being unable to make any
discoveries, and the excitement increasing as
the intelligence spread from one to another, the
alarm bells were rung about 11 o’clock at night,
in order to call out the citizens generally. The
object was so for successful as to bring out. a.
brother ofthe young lady upon whom the us
sault. was committed. He stated that. his sister
was knocked down, as mentioned, buthad been
enabled to rests-h home. Who the wreteh was,

well county, 11]., were murdered on me 10th
inst, during his absence. On examination it
was found that the fiendish crime had been
committed with the back part of an axe, with
repeated blows. Nine wounds were found
upon Mrs. Orendorf, seven of which were con
sidered sufficient to produce death, if dealt
singly. The youngest. child was much man
gled about the head; the eldest seemed to have
made its escape from the house, and was caught
in the yard and stricken down with a club. All
the drawers where valuables were likely to be
kept had been opened, and from $3O to $4O
and a Colt’s revolver taken. A young man who
had lived in the neighborhood but a~short time,

Mn. Yuan AM) THE VICE Phenomena—-
The proposition to put. Mr. Yancey up for Vice
President- on the Douglas ticket having been
attributed to George N. Sanders, that. gentle
man‘publishes a letter, in which he says he
made the proposition or remark casually and
Without. previous thought, and that it. “was
only responsive to the spirit. of goood-humored
raillery which prevailed” at the table of the
gentlemen in whose house he and several others,
of difi'orent political sentimenls, were invited
to a private dinner. He had no idea, until
recently, that, any one considered his remark
to have been anything more than a joke.
THE Uncons—The fabulous unicorn has
been found by a traveler. He says: It exists
in the interior of the Thihet in India, where it
is well known to the inhabitants. It is the
same as the unicorn of Scriptures, and is men
tioned by ancient writers. It is said to be
about the size of the horse, and extremely wild.
It is seldom ever caught. They have a. horn
projecting out from their forehead. They go
in herds and are to be met with on the borders
of the Great Desert.
Recently on the coast of Cuba a. Spanish man
of-war steamer threw a. shot across the bow of
the United States vessel Crusader, when Capt.
Mafiitt replied by firing ditto, hoisting his
colors and steaming down, with his men at
quarters, demanding what he meant? It was
a. mistake. The Crusader looked something
like the City of Norfolk, the slaver, and hence
the misapprehension.
It should be remembered that the Constition
of the State of Ohio restricts the right of suf
frage to white citizens of the United States, and
that every negro vote is a plain violation of the
law. We think it probable that more negroea
voted in, Ohio for Judge Brinkerhofl‘ than he
has a. majority over Smith. We hear more or
less of their voting in almost every poll. White
men are rapidly losing the government of Ohio!
A New York paper deseribes a new ploughing
machine, by which it is said that three furrows,
each a. foot wide and a. foot deep, are not. only
turned over, but thoroughly stirred up and
pulverized, the operation being something like

a. manner that it keeps the earth flying around

POPULATION or Ohio—lt. appears from the
new census that the State of' Ohio has now a
population of 2,343,982, which is an increase
of 363,714 since 1850. This is better than the
first, reports had led us to expect, though not
up to the expectations subsequently formed by
the people of Ohio. Their State seems to have
lost. much of its progressive spirit.
