0. BARRETT a: 00.,Harrisbnrg, Pa
Mr. Howem. Conn has resigned the allies of
Secretary of the Treasary, and will depart from
Washington on Thursday fo_r South Caroliue,
with the intention of visiting the Secession.
Convention, in that State, on the 17th inst.—
It is rumored that the vacant Secreteryship
has been ofl‘ei-ed to‘ Mr, Guthrie, of Kentucky,
and that he has telegraphed his acceptance.
IN the debatein the United States Senate on
Monday last, Mr. DAVIS, of Mississippi, said
that “ the remedy is in the patriotism and af
“fection of the people if it exists at all.”—
And again—“lf there is anything we can do,
“it is to get evidence that such hostility
“ (against the South) does not exist. I be
“lieve it does not exist. If you can submit
“ sdchevidenee, I feel that the bitterness will
“cease.” At the very time Mr. DAVIS was
using this hopeful language, the people of Bos
ton were furnishing the required evi‘lence of a
fraternal feeling towards the South, by elect
ing a Democratic Mayor by a majority of over
three thousand. Day seems to be dawning.
Tm: discussion in the United States Senate
on Monday last was marked by unexpected
moderation on both sides. Even Mr. CHARLES
Sums. managed to open his month without
breathing insult and threats. The conciliatory
tone Vof Mr. _ Jansnsox Davrs, heretofore
regarded as a leading secessionist, the declara~
tion of Mr. Gasman, of Missouri, that his duty
was in the Union, and the entire repudiation
of the doctrine of the “irrepressible conflict"
by Mr. DIXON, Republican Senator from Con
necticut, are all hopeful indications. The fol
lowing extract from the speech of the last named
gentleman shows decided disapproval of the
sentiments of Seward and Lincoln:
There is a class of men, North, and perhaps South, of
small numbers and influence, who assume that the pre
sent controversy is a conflict, as they say, of two civili
zations. That it cannot be reconciled—that freedom on
slavery must now, perish. The great body of those whom
I represent don’t thus believe. We believe there is no
conflict in the systems of labor in the difl'erent States
which is incompatible to themceful existence of our
Union. We still believe that the slaveholding and non
slavehclding States may revolve in harmonious spheres;
that if the question of slavery downy the Union, lt‘will
be not because, in the nature of things, it could not he
rightfully adjusted, but because the statesmen of the
country were incompetent to the task.
The Betrayed and the Betrayers.
Pennsylvania is naturally a conservative I
state, and she would not have ranked herself
with the States that precipitated the present
difficulties upon the country, had it not been
for the deception practiced by leading men 'in
the interest of the Republican party. We are 1
satisfied that the I‘m-301'“? of the citizens of this
State 5° deeply "ET“ that her electoral vote ;
was given to Lincoln, that if a vote could be
taken to-morrow the verdict of #1": 6th of
November would be reversed by an immense
majority. Pennsylvania was’misled. She did
not believe that in voting for Lincoln she was
purchasing Republican success at the fearful
price of'dissolution. Instead of heeding the
warnings of those who saw the coming tempest,
she was beguiled by the flattering promises of
the Winners; the M’MICEAELE, the POLLocxs,
and other politicians of the mob species, who
promised that the downfall of Democracy should
be the elevation of laborand the inauguration
of a blessed 'era of commercial activity and
industrial prosperity. But ,i’ennsylvania at
last sees the pit into which these blind guides
have betrayed her; andif it was within her
power: she would retrace her steps. It is,
however, too Imm talk shoutthat.- The deed
is done“ LINCOLN is elected by the vote of
Pennsylvinis, and he may heiiuau‘gu'rated, _on;

to assure the people that there is no danger of
a dissolution of the Union. The danger is so
actual and immediate that even they are
compelled to recognize it. Neither can they
fail to appreciate the truth that they did not
eomprehend the magnitude ofthe issue involved
in the Presidential contest; or, if‘ they did,
they purposely blinded the eyes of the people
to its true nature. If they really erred blindly,
and were blind leaders of the blind, it is their
duty now to make all the reparation in their
Power, by humbly acknowledging their error
and foregoing all aspirations in the future as
leaders, teachers or representatives of the
people. After running the ship upon the sends
it is time for them to abdicate the pesition of
helmsmen ; and hereafter to devote the remnant
of their influence to restoring this old State to
the conservative position which she naturally
should occupy. By adopting this course these
leaders may save themselves from some portion
of the execration of a deceived and betrayed
people, and be permitted to retire to a. decent
and peaceful obscurity. But if they insist
upon braving just public indignation, they may
be assured that retribution in some form will
finally overtake them.
Too Late.
Even the most hopeful are constrained to
express the conviction that all plans of com
promising our diferences have come too late
to prevent secession. The Washington Star
fears that the time has passed when Congres
sional action might have been efi'ective even to
delay the secession of the cotton-producing
States. But, as “_while there is life there is
hope,” we can only pray that the appointment
of this committee may result in some Congres
sional action that will strengthen the purpose
of conservative menat the South to induce
Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia to pause
for a season ere committing themselves to the
measure of South Carolina.
‘ Seeing nothing ahead to assure us that they
may accomplish that end, we can but hope that
the diSahilities which both extreme sections
drill, _feel from disunion accomplished, will
speedily result in a reconstruction of the Gov
ernment upon a more satisfactory and a safer
basis. It 'will be the peculiar labor of the
border States, slaveholding and noneslnvehold
ing, to bring about that end. Three things
are necessary to its accomplishment. '
Ist. That civil war shall 'not grow out of the
withdrawal of the cotton-producing States of
the" Union. : Else the border slaveholding
States will all speedily follow them. v =
2d. That there he no' interference upon the
part ot‘ Englanduand Ennce in our internal
difiiculties whereby the extreme South may be.
stimulated to hold to the position they are ap
parently about to assume. _ :
. 3d. :Thatithe effect of the secession upon the
business interests of the North shall speedily
teach her that she has lost far more than she
has gained by anti-slavery ultraism. .
- we" are hopeful with reference 'to the first
and third of these propositions, though doubt
ful as to second. The anti-slavery measures of
England and France have from‘ first to last
been directed to the end of dissevering this
Government, in order to cripple the so. rapidly"
progressing manufactures of our Northern
States. That object having at length been
accomplished, we fear they will leave no efi‘ort
untried to make. it a fixed fact for all time to
come, so soon as they may decently step for
ward to influence the seceding States to refuse
overtures for the reconstruction of the Union.
Correspondence of the Patriot md Union
WAsmafrox, Dec. 9, 1860.
‘ The caucus of the Southern Senators, held at
the Capitol yesterday, like all the other meetings
that have taken place, resulted in a failure to de
vise any means whereby to avert the threatened
danger to the country; and thus .we are left to the
same painful state of unfiety as to the future that
we have all sufi‘ered during the past week. All
that I can see in this state of afi'eire is the dread:
ful certainty that there is no earthly hope that'the
dissolution of the Union can be much longer pre
vented. '
i The secession sentiment is no longer confined to
the cotton or Gulf States,hut is spreading from the
_Golondo to thesonthern line of our own State.—
Texas is as rampant for disunion as South Carolina,
and ere long Maryland and Delaware will he as
fatally possessed as the most rabid disunion State ;
in the South. It is matter of astonishment to find i
the South so persistent in this secession movement,
and can only be accounted for on one hypothesis,
and that is that it is a question of resistance,“
humiliation with them, and they prefer to.go out
of the Union, rather than remain in it and be hu
miliated to s. state of inferiority, under the rule of
men who have proclaimed their hostility to them
in advance of their triumph. _ -
Mr. Iver-son, of' Georgia, the _other day in the
Senate said that it is the interest of the South to
secede, but here I think is the ground on which the
people of the Southern States are making a flute!
mistake. Perhaps, if 3111’ the dreams. of Southern
grandeur and magnificence that flit athwart the
imaginations of our ardent Southern friends can
he realized, or half that is conjectured, then it ‘
might be the interest of the South to secede. If, ‘
without. effort, they could teke in all Mexico and.
Central America, and form out of those eonntfiee
joined to the fifteen Southern States one, grand
Southern Con federacy or Empire, then there might
be some truth in Mr. Iverson’s declaration, that it
is the interest of the South to secede. But if all
this is to be accomplished—if it is ever to be oe
complished—after a long series of years, amid toil
and blood, and at the expense of a protracted war,
then indeed it will be found: that‘those Southern
philosophers who have persuaded the people of the
South that it was their interest to sever their con
nexion with this Union, will discover that they
were false prophets, who came to the people with
lying tongues to lure them to destruction.
It is not in the nature of things that the South
will he benefited by accession. No; the North and
the South will both sufi'er, and it is hard to deter
mine at this stage of the proceedings which section
will suffer most. So far as more dollars and cents
are coneerned,_l believe the North will be largely
the loser, in the loss of her trade, in 'tho prostration
of her manufacturies, and the depreciation of 'all
kinds of stocks and real estate that must necessa
rily follow dissolution. But the most lamentsble
of all aspects ,to View this question of amnionf of
dissolution in is‘the efl'oot it' will have in rotsrding
the progress of 933"”! religious liberty, uogqully‘

the people of Mexico for the last quarter of a cen
tury, nothing but a distracted family of military
serfs. bound to the car of every haughty upstart
who may have impudence and daring enough to
place himself at the head of an army, to harrsss
other petty State communities, until both their
substance and themselves shall disappear from the
'face of the earth. This country once severed, it
will he found when they come to re-eonstruct it
that _the task will be one entirely too great for the
small men of our day and generation.
These States will spring up into as many petty
Republics as there are States, or at least as there
are sections. For instance—tho great State of
New York, whose greatness has been brought about
directly by the trade of the South and South-west,
will set up for herself. She cannot go with New
England, because the interests of New England as
such and those of New York are diverse and an
tagonistic. Pennsylvania, with ‘her vast mineral
and manufacturing resources, must have a tarifi'
for the protection of her iron interests, which New
York nor New England cannot assent to, “ditto!!-
sequently, Pennsylvania must set up for herself.
The great West must set up for herself, and form a
Western Republic out of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,
lowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, dam, &e.—
Then we will have the Southern _Bepuhlic, embra—
cing all the States south ‘of Mason and Dixon’s
line, except the Pacific States—California, Oregon,
and Washington—that must form a separate gov.
ernment. It requires no forecast to see how utterly
weak and exposed to danger will all‘ these small
sections be, even suppose that all this would be ac
complished in an amicable and peaceful manner.
The fable of the bundle of sticks is an illustration
in point. When bound together they resisted the
same power to break them that could easily do so
when the ligature that bound them was broken, and
each 'stick was subjected to the destroying process.
Letru'szresist this thing called secession with all
our power .as long-as we can, in order to save our
country from certain destruction. . .
It is said that a distinguished Southern Senator
received a dispatch from Springfield, Illinois, from
old Abe Lincoln, to the effect that in the course of
a very few days a letter will appear, from under
his own hand, in whichhe will. give the country
such assurances as allvwill befsatisfied with. But
we must wait and see what the nextp‘fow days may
bring forth. If Old Abe can stay the present state
of things, and give peace and ,tranquilitj to this
country, and, above all, prevent the catastrophe of
secession or disunion. ' I f'orone wouldhe disposed
to toss up my cap with a hearty good will in honor
of that man,l believe, with the reverendlchaplain
of the House of Representatives,'in' his sermon to
day on the present state of the country, that=it will
require a higher power than the puny: arm‘ of man
to restore our people totheir once happy “union of
hearts and union of hands,” so that the machinery
of govereinent may you as itwas-Vivont toAdo

That we are on the eve of one of the direst ea.—
lamities that could possibly befall our beloved
country every true patriot musthdmitg'hut how the
evil may be. averted in work of wisdom that thould
command the best minds of, the country. Who,_
then, of our leading men has the patriotism and
sageoity to control the storm which has been
gradually growing‘for yenrs to its present height,
ready to; burst with its fury and to destroy the noble
fabrie'of the Union, reared with so much blood, the
which till within so recent a. period has had such
a deep hold on the attentions of the people? But
no singlemind can control the storm. The peo
ple, the business and practical part ofthe people:
must now rush to the rescue, and already theysare,
beginning to speak in tones that are not misun
dersood. , A great ehnngeg or rstherawakening up,
of the masses is now taking place, and the pres
sure of public opinion is becoming so great that
those who are soon to occupy the places of power
will be forced to repeal all. obnoxious laws and to
give such guarantees for the future that our deeply
wronged Southern brethren may feel that security
may hereafter be depended upont that their. pro
perty may not he ruthléssly torn from them, or
their rights invaded. V .
This is not a time for reoriminetions. All true

which was engendered by a hotly contested eleo

to‘ preserve for ages to come, in stability and firm

blame rests, _there is certainly one lesson that

Mound City, three hundred strong, and deter

combined forces would be sufficient to capture
Montgomery. Lieut. Scott had been disabled
by an accidental shot through the leg.

SENATE—The House bill. to provide for the
paymentiof outstanding. Treasury notes, au
thorising a loan, etc., was called up.
Mr. Rice, (Minn.) objected to taking it up. ‘
Mr. Cameron, (Penn) was in favor of con
sideringit. The bill was taken up by a vote of
89 yeas to 37 nays.
The ten million treasury note bill was re
ceived irom the House. Mr. Rice moved its
reference to the Finance Committee. Agreed
to. , -
The resolution of Mr. Powell referring that
part of the President’s Message relating to do.
mestie afi'airs. to aselect commit-tee, was taken
11 .
er. Hale, (SN. H.) ofl'ered a resolution in
structing the ommittee on Military Affairs to
inquire whether the expenses of that branch
of v thepuhlie service cannot be reduced without
detriment to the safety of the country; and if
so, that they be instructed to report to what'
extent and what particular branch or branches
can be dispensed with or reduced. The reso—
lution was adopted.
Mr. Bigler, (Pat) then took the floor, having
yielded it yesterday for an adjournment.
He said he would go with the Senator from
Illinois (Mr. Douglas) and. with the men of
every party who will devote themselves to the
great work of resistance to the impending
danger. '
Mr. President—Through weal or woe, I am
a Union man. lam for the Union as made by
oUur fathers. lam for the Constitution and the
Hanan—Mr. Cobb, (A 192,) said he did not
rise to make a. speech, but to exprese'hie, anxi
ous desire that the Select Committee should
commence business and present the result of its
deliberations in some tangible form. Hisihope
was. however, faint, as to any useful.result.=. -If
anything- was to be done to save his State from
seces'siou .it must be done at once. '
The election for delegates to the State Con
vention takes place on the 24th inst, and the
Convention meets on the 7th of January: What
means these crowded galleries? His answer
was the excitement which perrades the public
mind, not-only here, butlhroughout the coun
try. all looking to Congress to do ' something:
He hopedthe: House would stop the debate, and
do somethlng, if possible; to produce harmony
among the people. ,There was a, pure gleam
of light from Boston which may ultimately
have a 'goodj'efi‘ect ‘on the. public mind. Let
the North show a returning sense of justice,
and the question which now agitates all, will
be taken into the hands of the people for pro
per adjustment. . . , ,
He trusted that the. Committee would do
something to handonize the distracted public
mind; He knew that Alabama would not
remain in the confederaCy longer thanthe 15th
of January, unless somethinghe speedily done.
He was not a. Secessionist. , He desired peace
predicated on the principles ofthe Constitution“
If we could have that you would-help :us; to
remain in the Union" aslong 'as: the 2sun shall
shine, and my prayer " shall "be sent forth for:
the perpetuity of this Government.. - z . ,
- Mr. Davis (Miss) briefly'gave'the reasons
:why he should ‘senegon' the Union Committee.
_He might be blamed or.censured,'but in acting
where his conscience approved, he defied the:
opinion of the world. He stood here, not as
the representative of his own preference, but
of the interests of hiscon’stituents. He re
gretted much that the resolution under which
theqommittee’w‘as raisedcame from the dis;-
tinguished-ason' .of Virginia. He had enter!
tainedi the opinion that the ‘Southern members
‘shouldwithdraw-and leave _the Republicans to
submit. a report. for consideration ;«.but this
could not he done. The Constitution was suf
ficientfor the pretection'off Southern rights, if
executed in the letter and spirit. If our Gov
ernment rests. for its continuance on public
opinion, he could have no hope from that:
source, nor that it could be preserved by com-'
promises or the use of the. sword. ‘ . .
The Republicans have destroyed the only
bond which can bind the Union. The subject
matter referred ‘to_the Committee did hotbe—
long to this House, It grew out of principles
and systems in the Northern States directly at
war with the safety and material interests of
the South. If any action is taken at all, it
should originate from the Northern States.
. The House then voted and refused to excuse
Mr. Hawkins—yea; 95, nays_lol.. ‘ 9
Mr. Hawkins, (Floride.) - Lest silence should
be construed into eo'nsent to serve on the com
mittee, he wished to say with all deference and
good-feeling for those who voted againlt his
request, that. he would not serye. V
. Mr, Boyce, (S. C.) asked to be excused from
serving on the committee. ' ‘

The pony express from San Francisco passed
_here at. 5 o’clock this morning, bearing'a pack

important connection with political movementhin s.
