The Telegraph accidentally stumbled upon a
truth when it stated yesterday, in the course
of an article detailing certain fabulous outras
ges committed upon Northern menat the South,
that “ the South has much causefor complaint.”
But the effect of this admission was entirely
destroyedby the announcement made in the same
column, that n so for as the Republicans of the
“ North are concerned they have no concessions
“to make.” No concessions by the North to
allay just complaints on the part of the South
is, therefore, the position of the Telegraph,
supposing, for the sake of argument, that it is
responsible for any position it takes. '
WI have repeatedly urged as an argument
to induce the South to delay secession and await
redress within the Union, that the “inept-«si—
ble conflict" must soon break out between the
ultra and the moderate wings of the Republican
party. The debate in the Senate shows that
that conflict has already commi'eneed.~ Mr.
DIXON, Republican Senator from Connecticut,
and. Mr. Wane, Republican Senator from Ohio,
are as wide asunder its the polls. Dixon is
willing to make concessions—Webs has no
concessions to make. Dixon denominates the
disciples of stsnn’s irrepressible conflict a
small and insignificant faction. Wans evi
dently regards this principle as the vital power
of Republicanism, to be maintained at every
heard. The issue isalready made up between
the factions of the Republican party; Their
lending men must soon show on which side of
the widening chasm they "stand; and then out
ofthe conflict may come the necessarycomj
promises and concessions necessary to preserve
the Union, if the South will. only forbenr for, a
time'.. 4
Wade’s Speech.
e Backbone is a very good thing when exer
cised in behalf of the right; but a very bad
thing when made to stiffen up wrong. The Ith '
speech of Mr. Wm: in the United States Sen-.
ate, declaring his unalterable determination not
to compromise or concede anything for the sake
of, the Union, evince: the bed temper of the
ultra Repnblieans. The Tribune calls it a
“ch, luminous and authoritative statement of
“ the principles and purposes of the Republi
“on party.” What that authoritative state
ment was, ma? be gathered from such expres
sions as these—“l would sufi'er anything be
“ fore I would compromise in my way. I
“ deem it no case where we have aright to ex
“ tend courtesy or generosity—l will yield to
“ no compromise." .
Nothing but compromise can save the Union.
The choice is between compromise and disu
nion. _When a man says he is opposedto com
promise he is in favor of disunion, and in that
position Mr. WADE and the party he represents
stand to-day. They interpose their stubborn
wills against any fraternal settlement of the
diiiiculties distracting the country, and the only
hope remaining is for the people to rise in
their Strength and subdue the obduracy of this
reckless and domineering sectionalism.
The etfect of Wms’s speech is to dampen
the hopes of a peaceful settlement of our dif
ferences, and to encourage the Republican
‘party in maintaining a position of hostility to
.the South. It is not thorspeech of a states
,M.fihose mind grasps, and whose affections
embrace the whole country, but that of a party
leader; 'who would maintain a destructive party
organization at every cost and at all hazards.
It does not evince any broad comprehension of
the cause and character _of the Nation’s peril,
hot 8. narrow, sectional spirit. incapable of ti
:'sing;ahove the atmosphere of the stump.
The Ohio Senator cannot understand why
the South should be alarmed, because the Re
publican party have as yet committed no act of
which anybody can complain. He thinks it
strange that they should act now upon fears of
what may hereafter ensue. It strikes us that
the alarm of the South is not so very strange
and unaccountable, considering that the Re
publican party have already succeeded in the
infamous achievement of straying one section
of the Union against the other in deadly hos
tility; and considering furthermore that in the
same speech Mr. WADE expresses his determi
nation to exclude the South from participation
in the benefits of the common territory of the
Union. ifhe ever gets the opportunity. If the
South is-now acting from mere apprehension
of 'l‘” may happen to them in the future, have
they ‘10?- good reason to fear} the hostility of
Bid! men as WADE when they obtain control of
the General Government? Parties and men do
not wait for actual events in shaping their
course. They uniformly act from apprehen
demand, anticipation of what the future has in
guy. forithem, and the South is no exception
to this general rule. This truth might be ela
borated, but its statement is suflicient for the
present. -
Another portion of this Ipeech is devoted to
nominations of the South by reason of their
alleged treatment of Northern men, as an 011'.
set to the complaints made concerning the
Personal Liberty acts of the Northern States.
"We have no security in traveling nearly one
“ half of this confederacyfi’ exclaims the Sen
ator. Why are Northern men noteeeure in the
South? It did not use to he so. We will an

along the Abolition ranks, as if the South‘si'he‘
guilty of some monstrous outrage in ‘not per

treason to exercise their vocation. In such a
state of general alarm it is not improbable that.
some innocent finenvmay sufi‘er with the guilty;
formen Whoseifipprehensions are excited cannot;
be expected to discriminate justly in all cities;
It is certainly a lamentable condition of society,
but it. is entirely attributable to the intermed
dling of the Abolitionists of the North with
affairs that did not concern them in the least.
As ~soon as they cease to send emissaries to the
South to whisper treason into the ears of the
slaves, that soon will the South cease to regard
Northern men with suspicion, and no sooner.
Mr. Wann complains of an evil of his own
creating. The Southern people are in the habit
of treating most Northern men kindly who
mind their own business; and so sure are we
of this fact that we would undertake’to start
to-morrow and travel through every Southean
State, including South Carolina, without ap
prehension that we would be molested- Mr.
WADE might not be secure if he attempted to
proclaim freedom its the normal condition of all
men from every street corner; but it would be
his own fault if he was invited to proceed
northward on pain of violent expulsion.
There is just one other allegation of this
speech that deserves notice, because it is dwelt
upon frequently by the Republicans. It. is
Said. that “ all this trouble is a matter of pre
‘fjudice, superinduced'by listening to the ene
“ mies of the Republican party.” The charge
is that the South has obtained exaggerated
ideas of the principles and purposes of the Re
publicanparty from misrepresentations of Dem
ocrats. Now, the Democrats of the North have
never brought any charge against the Repub¥
lican party which was not warranted by their
platform antithe speeches of their leading man.
Congress has been the focus of all political in
telligence for years pastyand Southern men
obtained their impressions of the Republican
party _from intercourlse with its representative
men and from hearing and reading their
speeches, both in Congress and during the late
canvass. If the Republican party has been
misjudged its own leaders are accountable. ~ If
they have been denominated John Brown men,
Ethey deserve it for electing-Axons“, whose-id
that John Brown was right, Governe'l‘i of ’ Mas
sachusetts. If they have been called‘Abolié
-tionists, they deserve it for applauding the
speeches of Salmon, Gunning-s and Lov'roor.
‘They have no right to recognizel‘such men as
:leaders and then repudiate responsibility for
their teachings; and they are‘unjastified in
charging the Democeats of the North with mis
representation of ,the Republican party, when
we have done nothing m'ore than to repeat and
warn the people againstthe doctrines of their
own' leaders. ‘ _ ',‘ ' ' '

WHIBIAS, Alarming dimensions have arisen between
the northern and southern States as to the rights to the
common territory of the United States, it is eminently
desirous and proper that such dissensions should be
settled by the constitutional provisions which give
equal justice to all sections, whereby to restore peace.
Therefore, '
Resolved, By the Senate and House of Represents
tives,’ that the following article be proposed and sub—
mitted as an amendment to the Constitution, which
shall be valid as a port of the Constitution when reti

north of lslitude 36 degrees 30 minutes, slaveryor in
voluntary servitude, except punishment for crime, shall
be prohibited; while south of that latitude, it shall
remain; and in all territory south of that latitude,
slavery is hereby recognized as existing. and not to be
interfered with by Congress, but be protected as pra
perty by all departments ofthe territorial government,
during its continuance as a territory. When territory
north or south of such line, within such” boundaries
as Congress may prescribe, shall contain the population
necessary for a member of Congress, with a republican
form at government} it shall be ndmittedinto the Union
on an equality with he original States, with or without
slavery, as the Constitution of the State may prescribe.
2. Congress shall have no power to abolish slavery in
plieces under its jurisdiction, or ‘ in states permitting
s every. .' ~
3. Congress shall have no power'to abolish slavery in
the District of Columbia while it exists in Virgina or
Maryland, or either. Nor Congress ”shall never, at any
time, prohibit the officers of the government, or mem
bersof Congress, whose duties require them to live. in
the District of Columbia, and bringing slaves, from
holding them as such. »
4. Congress shall have no power to hinder the trans
portation of slaves from one State to another, whether
by land, navigable rivers, or by sea“. .
5. Confiess shall have power lay-law to pay the owner
who shall apply the fullvalue of the fugitive slave in
all cases when the marshal is prevented from discharg

In all such cases the United States shall have power to

Correspondence of the Patriot and Unit":
Wunmeron, Dec. 18, 1360.
We hove had the strange spectacle“ in Congress yes
terday of one branch passing a' resolution calling
upon the Legislatures of the Northern States to
repeal all their Personal Liberty bills newton their
statute books; and all other laws that in any way
conflict with the Constitution, and such men as
Owen Lovejoy, of Illinois. voting for that resolu,
tion, whilst in the Senate Mr. Wade,-of Ohio, was
making an ultra. Abolition tirade against slavery.—
I was Wofnlly disappointed on hearing Mr. Wade,
who made a. hurengue which was much more suited
to a congregation of hotthended, rampant. Aboli
tionists, on the Western Reserve of Ohio, than the
floor of the Unit-ed States Senate.
Mr. Wade is not a. man of ability. I had given
him credit for talents which he evidently does not
possess. ~ His effort yesterday was full of stale, hit
more denunciation of the institution of slavery, was
ill-timed, out of place, and did not please anybody.
Even Senator Wilson, of Massachusetts, was dis
pleased, chagrined and disappointed. It, aboundod
in the most common-place phrases, and as an at
gnment is almost. beneath the dignity of contempt.
No man in the Senate was pleased with Mr. Wade’s
speech yesterday, except, perhaps, that other fan
atic, Sumner, whose supercilioue smile now and
then, at some harsh remark made by Wade, might
be taken as an approval of the bitter tirade of the
Senator from Ohio. , .
When asked by Senator Powell, of Kentucky,
whether he (Wade) approved of the conduct of
Gov. Dennison, of Ohio, who hut a short time ago
refused to deliver up a fugitive from justice, on n
requisition of the Governor of Kentucky, he eve.-
ded the question by a. species of special pleading
unworthy ofa statesmen; and-when asked by the
some Senator if he (Wade) was in favor of the ex
ecution of the Fugitive Slave law,‘ he sknlked, by
saying that he did recogniie the‘ right of the Son
ator from Kentucky to interrogete him.
Mr. Wade made‘ one declaration, however,,the.t
wee significant of the determinntion of certain Re
publicans like himself. and that was that “today
for compromising between the North and the'scuth
was gone; This, I ran, will he found lamentably
toetrne; but the Republicans will find that when
they are ready to make such c..-compromise as is
needed to save the country, that the hour will have
'passed awayfiin which each a compromise could
have been made; They will find that they have
just addedthe ounce that broke the camel's back,
and the reality of all their teachings will burst upon
them' with fearful trutht'when the Gordinn knot

The President and his ' Assailants.
Having failed in‘the‘ir attempt to force the
firesident into the adoption of the coercion
policy, the leading Lincoln journals of the
North assail the Exeeutive with amalignity
never exceeded in partisan controversy. The
Courier and Engiu'rer, the Times, the Tribune,
and the Block Republican press generally, ex
haust the vocabulary of abuse in animadver
sione' upon- Mr. Buchenan’e capacity and mo
tives; and th'eyj'eceive aid and eneonragenient
from the mercenaries whoboast of their‘inde
pendence, whilet ready to sacrifice their best
friehd (an the altar of sensation journalism.—
Only the atrocity of these attacks redeems them
from contempt. Vit'uperation, and slander,
and downright, unmitigated falsehood are juin
bled together throngh whole columns of attack,
witha pertinaoity which springs from baflied
mischief and long-pent hate.
The conduct of the Administration in the
crisisis the pretext upon which Mr._ Buchan
an’s assailants proceed. _ They rate him and his
ad risers roundly on; the alleged ground oflfi‘im
beeility,” “indecision,” “weakness," “-trea
son ;” the Tribune reaching the climax of atro
city by publishing statements impugning Mr.
Buchanan’s sanity. and declaring its hope that
theyeare true; and others attaining the. top
most folly byxgravely calling upon him to re;
sign his oflice into other hands!
The cause of this disgraceful bitterness of
spirit lies upon the surface. Mr. Buchanan
has incurred the displeasure 'of the Lincoln
party ,by his repudiation of the coercion theory
and his firm refusal to permit a. resort to force
as a means of preventing the secession of sove
reign States Pretending, as some of the Black
Republicans do,‘ so far to “hold the right of_
self-government sacred” as to object theoreti
cally to State subjugation, it is plain that the
whole party practically favor coercion, and are
anxious that it shall be employed against the
acceding commonwealth's. They would like to
have Mr. Lincoln’s battle fought by Mr. Bu
chamn. They would infinitely prefer that Mr.
Buchanan should employ the resources of the
Federal Government in subduing independent
States, than that Mr; Lincoln should have the
mortification of findlng him Self the chief ofli
cor ot' a section, as distinguished from the Pre
sident of the United States. Mr. Buchanan
wisely declines to be the Block Republican
cat’s-paw. He refuses to precipitate the coun
try into civil war merely to serve the purposes
of the opponents of slavery. He will have
nothing to do with the tactics of those who,
under the plea of preserving the Union, would
convert the federal authority into an odious
despotism, and wealthy, high-spirited commu—
"nities into, theatres of. bloodshed and desolax
tion. . : ,

a course would be but the carrying out of their
ultimate and unelterable schemes. But they
are not, therefore, to be regarded as trustworthy
commentators upon Mr.' Buchanan, or the line"

is not a coercionist. He is not an opponent of
Staterights. He is not an anti-slavery emis

stripe. And having promulgated the reasons
'which lead him to accept the no-cocrcion view
of State and Federal _relations, as understood
by national statesmen, North and South, the
only path of patriotic duty open to him is that
to Which he quietly but steadily adheres.
Rave and abuse and falsify as they may, Mr.
Buchanan’s assailants will not succeed in per
suading the country that he has acted in a man
ner inimical to its interests. He has proceeded
‘ in the only .way that admits of the preservation
; of peace, the restoration of confidence, and the
i reconstruction of the Union under happier
auspices that are at present attainable. The

H: used to be a rosy,;heolthy’-looking fellow,
full of flesh andrigor—Ahe is lean, pale, melan
choly. He has become afraid of dying since
he has grown rich, and spends'l’nost of his time
over medical books or in conference with some
doctor or other, for he has three or four phy
sicians infee. The other day a child of one
of his gnrdencrs fell “sick of the small-pox. he
had himself vaccinated instantly, and wished
to force all his friends to follow his exemple.
Although he has been master of the estate
only 3 few months, he is already for selling
out; a poetical brook winds through the park,
about a hundred yadrs from the house, and he
has taken it into his head that it breeds rheu
matism and chills. This'whiin has disgusted
him with his country-house, and nothing will
do now but it must be sold. These people, who
were so happy in their mediocrity of wealth,
have become miserable. _Every fall 'of funds,
every piece of political news, drives sleep-from
the wife’s eyes; shelooks forward to thel'uin
of her estate as something imminent. Every
change of the wind, every variation of the
thermometer throws the husband into a fit of
irreooverable desponden‘cy. 'Wenlth has do

negroes, Vlz:—-—Levi Jenkins, aged 35, under
sentence of death for rape upon a negro girl;
John Chennon. aged 18. under similar sentence
for the murder of e lovely white girl of 14
summers, and a. colored woman of 18 years,
for. the-murder of an innocent babe, of fourteen
mo'nthq', suffered the penalty of the law, at
Georgetown, Delaware. In the presence of
about sixty persons, comprising the sherifi's
jury, military guards, physicians, &e., in the
jail-yard, (and hundreds without, crowding the
trees, walls and house-tops,).at precisely one
o’clock, the drop fell, and all three were
launched into eternity—two 01' them dying in
one minute, and the third only showing some
muscular contractions for about ten Inmates-
The Rev. Mr. Hough accompanied them fo the
scaffold and ofl'ered up a prayer. This gentle
man had previously visited them in their cells.
Two of them seemed a good deal concerned,
Whilst the murderer of the girl was apparently
careless and indifi'erent. Neither of them had
anything to say.

A correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph
vouches for the following;
A new and highly valuable invention has
been put into practice here. It is a printing
machine, dispensing with the use of all other
assistance. save that of mechanical apparatus.
No persons are required to feed it with paper.
or to remove the printed sheets, both processes
being accomplished through the instrumental
ity of the machine itself. The paper for this
purpose is supplied in rolls many hundred
yards in length. The machine first euts'a sheet
of the requisite size, then prints, and finally
throws it of a newspaper ready for the reader,
Allthat manual labor is required to do is to
bring forward fresh rolls and take away the
printed sheets. Thus, in the Vienna State
printing-oflice, ten presses are attended to by
one man onlyl - . '
