Cabiet Speculations.
The newspa‘pers are busy fixing up Mr. Lin
coln’s Cabinet, for him. As is usual after the
election of a new President, 311 sorts of rumors
are afloat with regard to the policy he intends
to pursue; but for the most part they are mere
rumorswilhont any more substantial foundation
than!" the imagination of those manufacturing
them. The New York fifbwzs gives the Inflow
ing as the composiiien of the new Cabinet, upon
the authority of a Springfiel-i paper, lan! at. the
same time discredits its authority :
38mm of 5tate..............W. H. Seward.
Secretary of War............._ 121'. Blair, Jr
Secretary of the Nuy....... . ..H. .W. Davis.
Secretary of the Treasury... . ..J‘ Sherman.
Secretary of the Interior.......Johu Hickman
Postmaster-General . .. . . . . . . . . .H. Etheridge.
Attomey—Genenl... . . .. . .... . .‘S. T. Logan.
It is very well to speculate upon the proba
bility of Lixcomi’s selecting such men as Sm?-
m, Bum, SHERMAL‘, DAVIS and menun as
his constituzionsl advisers, but the Senate will
have something to say with regard to the com
position of the Cabinet—and not. one of these
men could pass the ordeal of the conservative
majority in that body. If Mr. meonx con
sults his own comfort he will not try the ex
periment of gluing extreme men in his Cabinet.
If he sincerely desires to alloy the sgitalionin
the country, and lo convince the South that he
does not meditate any assault upon their con
stitutional rights, he must from the commence
ment of his Administration cut t he whole Seward
school of agitators and select. his advisers from
‘mong Lhc moderate men of his party-ofwhom
there are a number in every‘Northern State.
Mr. Lincoln is supposed to be a man of ordinary
sagacity—somc of his‘supporters say a con
servative of the Henry Clay school. If this is
the case, he will not be inclined to rush into
difiouitics at the out start of his Administration,
by attempting a course of policy which cannot
be successful. The Senate must be consulted
as to the composition of the new Cabinet, and
if meomz is a. wise man he will not venture
upon the experiment of nominating men who
are sure to be rejected, and thus be compelled
to select his Cabinet oflicers from among a class
of men who are not his first choice. Making a
virtue of necessity, the wiser course would be
to appoint men to his Cabinet who can be con
firmed by the Senate. ..
Movements at the South.
The news from the South continues to be of
an exciting character. Senator Cnnsum‘, of
South Carolina, notified the Legislature, now
in session, that he had resigned his seat in the
United States Senate. It 15 also stated that
Mr. Toonns has resigned : and it is supposed
that. the example of these Senators will be fol
lowed by others who favor the secession move
ment. TheLogislature of South Carolina passed
11l not providing for the election of delegates to
a State Convention on the 6th of Dacember, to
assemble on the 17th, for the purpose of deter
mining what course the State will take in the
present emergency. The bill originally pro
vided for calling the State Convention in Janu
ary, but as the Legislature is entirely under the
control of the secessionist-s, and their object is
to precipitate disunion before cool judgment
takes the place of passion, the shortest time
poesibie for the assembling of the Convention
was allowed.
The Legislature of Georgia determined, after
Wile discuss-ion= not to proceed immediately to
the election of a United States Senator in the
place of Mr. Ivsnsox, whose term expires on
the 4th of March next, because such proceed
ing would be taken as an intimation that Geor
gia intended to remain in the Union after the
inauguration of the Lincoln Administration.—
A bill was under consideration which, in ac
cordance with the recommendation of the Go
vernor, proposes to tax all articles manufac
tured in States nullifying the Fugitive Slave law.
Pennsylvania is enumerated among the list. of
nullifying States, which is a mistake, as this
State has no law upon her statute books in
tending to obstruct the execution of the Fugi
tive Slave low. Such a. law as the Legislature
of Georgia proposes to enact by way of retali
ation would, unquestionably, be in violation of
the Federal Constitution. This is not denied;
but the Georgians say that the precedent they
intend to follow has already been set by the
Northern States that have passed unconstitu
tional laws to prevent the execution of the con
stitutional provision for the rendition of fugi
tive slaves. As two wrongs never yet -made a.
right, we do not see the force of this reason
ing; but we do see how the mouths of the Re
publicans, who have enacted and are now up
holding those nullification laws, are effectually
9510.51,“ from Obiefling to the course which
Georgie proposes to pursue. Let the Northern
States which have passed personal liberty bills
clear their own skirts of the stain of nuilifica
tion, and then they will be in a. position to re
ln-oye Southern States for reserting to “noon.
stitutionsl means of defence.
Too Knowing by Far.
The most marvellouSly knowing set of fol
lows in the world are the Washington eorres~
pendent: of the New York papers, who impart
to the public daily intelligence of the precise
state of the President’s mind concerning the
troubles at the South. How these enterprising
correspondents manage to discover exactly what
the President is thinking about, and when he
he is calm, and when agitated, is very myste
rious; but itis clear that they know all about
his mental exercises. One d3} We are reliably
informed that the President has finally made
up his mind not to resist secession, but to use
all the power at his command against nullifica
tion. Just as we are trying to comprehend
what this means, and settling down into the
conviction that it must he true, because given
uponthe most unquestionable authority, am).
the! one 01' these well-informed ccmspcadcnts
plunges us again into doubt when he says—" It
“ is reliably stal ed that the President has deter
“mined to enforce every federal law in the
“ 5011111; 1101‘ Will he, as has been hinted, re
“cOgnize any distinction as existing between
“nullification and secession.” This ought to
settle the matter. Our reliable informant talks
as if he knew all about it, and had either ob
tained his information by moons of a private
illifl‘ViEW, at. which the President opened his
own mind, in the strictest confidence, or also
was upon the moslintimnte terms with the Pre
sident’s valet, to whom great men always cou
fide their secrets. But even this information,
furnished by the porrespondent of the World,
is liable to a certain degree of painful sus
picion; for the equally well-informed corres
pondent of lhe'Trz‘lmne uflirms unhositatingly
that. “the President is still in doubt what to
“do. He is apprehensive of troubles in the
“ South, but does not know how to meet them.
“ His feelings are with the South= but he is
“ afraid to assist them openly.”
This is an entirely difi‘erent account, of the
condition of the President. Which of these
equally rcliablqsmtements shall we accept E’—
The wisest course is to come to the conclu
srou lhat these correspondents know nothing
whatever about what they write, and that their
prczended information is furnished in pursu
ance of a contract to get up a. certain amount
of gossip daily for the amusement of the pub
lic, who prefer false news to no news at nll.-—-
Those enterprising correspondents are abso
lutely ignorant about what they write. They
have no better means of ascertaining what
steps the President intends to take in case of
serious troubles at the South than we have;
and we undertake to say that the President
will not shrink from the discharge of his duty
in maintaining the laws against any attempt. to
violate them, no matter how disagreeable the
conseqtzonoes may be. The insinuations so
freely indulged in by his enemies, that he has,
or will, encourage the Southern States to secede
or to nullify the laws, are entirely gratuitous
and unfounded, and will be proved so in the
What Ought the South to Do 2
1n appealing to our citizens, before the elec
tion, to render such a. verdict in that great
contest as we believed would preserve the
Union and the Constitution in their integrity,
we freely expressed our apprehensions of dan
ger in the event of a difl'crent result. The
crowning calamity, which the South has ap
prehended—the election of a President upon
the issues and devoted to the principles advo
cated by the Republican party—has fallen
upon them and upon the nation. It is yet too
early to understand the real sentiments and
intentions of the Southern people under this
decision. Telegraphic accounts of excited
feeling and action in afew Stat-es reach us, but
it is possible they are to be regarded as the
outbursts of the first feeling of indignation at
Northern action, rat-her than as the deliberate
declaration of the immediate future policy of
the States in question. '
t In the first place, says the Albany Argus, the
Republicans will only have possession of the
Executive Department, with Congress and Ju
diciary against them. The majority in both
Senate and House will be so decisive as to edec
tually prevent the passage of any laws giving
effect to any offensive theories of Republican
ism. The South, therefore, is safe from ag
gression, so for as ofi‘ensivo legislation is con
cerned—mere strongly fortified even, than
under the present Congress. It is also safe
against Mr. Seward’s threatened rc-organiza
tion of the Supreme Court against it. That
body can only be changed, by filling such va
cancies as may occur by death or resignation,
and the Senate can exercise u. check upon
filling those improperly.
The only increased danger, therefore, to the 1
South, is from the Executive. What can the
President do? How can he invade Southern
interests, fenced in as he will be, by opposition
in the co-ordinate branches of the government?
What power has he to strike a single blow
against Southern rights 2 We know of nothing
that he can do or leave undone, materially af
fecting questions of pending interests to the
South, unless it be to refuse to execute faith
fully the Fugitive Slave law. We are aware
that his party has plundered to the Abolition
feeling against obedience to this obligation of
the law and the Constitution, and has passed
State laws nullifying and arresting it, so far as
such laws can. But Mr. Lincoln in the Presi—
dential chair, clothed with the responsibilities
of that position, is in a very different situation
from your irrepressible agitatiors on the stump
or in the Legislative Assembly, and he dare
not refuse to execute the Fugitive Slave law.
The curses of the present and future genera
tions would brand him as a perjured traitor,
and the Constitutional process of impeachment
would expel him from the Presidential office,
should he thus refuse obedience to the law and
the Constitution. Moreover, it is only due to
truth to say, that there is no reason to believe
that Mr. .Lincoln will be disposed to shrink
from the performance of that duty—as it is
well known that he stands publicly pledged, by
his speeches in the Illinois campaign, to the.
execution of the Fugitive Slave law.
No—we beg leave to suggest to our Southern
brethren, that the accession of Republicanism
to the power and responsibilities of the gov
ment—unless rash and violent action at the South
shall supply it. with vitality—will be the certain
death of it. Its impotency to accomplish a
tithe of what it has threatened and promised
will reveal its hypocrisy and false pretences,
and disgust its more rabid supporters, and they
will drop it and turn their backs upon it. Mr.
Lincoln, as a. matter of absolute necessity, when
once in ofiice, must become conservative—must
execute the laws and obey the Constitution—
and this course will disappoint the fanaticism,
which has animated his Party and elevated him,
and Republicanism will be stricken down within
a laingle year, :13 By paralysis. 7' We say ”"3
will be the case, if our Southern brethren will look
at the matter in the light of philosopily and com
mon sense and wait a little, in quiet and repose,
for the progress of events. If they will do this,
we at. the North will be able to take care (If
Republicanism, and in another short year, the
crisis will have passed, fanaticism will have
burned out and a healthful reaction will give
renewed life and vigor to the body politic. But
if unwise and rash counsels should prevail in
some of the Southern States—if premature ac
tion for separate State protection should occur
nn'l secession from the Union, or even serious
demonstrations in that direction, be attempted,
this might furnish sufiicient excitement. and
outwerd Pressure to hold the Republican party
together and continue this hated struggle. Its
only bond of union is the slavery excitement,
which will quiet at the South, and Lincoln“ in
the Presidential chair, impotent to accomplish
anything which fanaticism has anticipated as
the fruits of victory, will prove a rope of sand,
and the discordant materials, of which this
political organization is composed, will fall to
pieces and repel each other.
Such—we, who have sympathized with them
and fought for their constitutional rights, say
to Southern men—arc our dispassionate views
of the present crisis and of the action and pol
icy which wisdom and patriotism demand. We
ask for them the calm consideration which be
comes the occasion. Southern men owe it to
themselves and their own bench—saying noth—
ing about courtesy to their hosts of true friends
at. the North—to act in this emergency with
dignity and deliberation.
Asmm‘an MASDAMUS.__T/ze County Commis

In the Supreme Court yesterday Judge Wood
ward delivered an opinion in the case of the
Commonwealth vs. the Commissioners of Al
legheny county—application for a. mandamus
compelling the respondents to make provision
for the interest due on the bonds issued by the
county to the Chortiers Valley railroad. The
case was argued at length at a recent sitting of
Ihe ooiirt in this city; it is only yesterday that
its decision in the matter was made known
The opinion is a well written paper. The
decree of 'the court is, however, against the
commissioners, and they will now have to levy
the tax as ordered, or run the risk of being
puished for contempt as before.———l"£ttsburg

just come to light in California. Some time
since George Wilson and two of his “friends”
got. drunk at Reed’s Rancho. Marion county;
his “ friends.” not so much the worse for liquor,
“ amused” themselves with soaking the clothes
of' Wilson with whisky, and to make sure of
their project, they poured a considerable quan

his shirt with the liquid, after which they set
fire to the clothes of the wretched man. He
remained there abandoned without a charitable

the arrest of the murderers.
