TUESDAY MORNING, SAN. 22, 1861.
THE NATIONAL CRISIS.
For the Patriot and Union
MESSRS. EDITORS : Our country is threatened
with ruin. Civil war, with all its untold hor
rors, is staring us, spectre-like, in the face.
Our Senators at Washington rise complacently
in their places and dare to tell us that " the
day of wicked compromise has passed," thus
proclaiming to the world their ignorance of the
very meaning of the term they employ, for
Webster says "compromise is an amicable agree
ment." If, then, compromise means amica
ble agreement, I ask those Senators what our
whole Constitution is but a compromise? What
is every law on out- statute books, National or
State, but a cinspromiet ? What is the funda=
mental principle of every , government on the
face of _God's earth but a compromise ? What
is the whole structure of civilized society based
upon ? What are the relations existing between
man and man, between virtue and vice, based
upon, if not compromise ? What is all law but
a compromise," anansicablemeetnent" between
the people on one hand and the government on
the other—an agreement by which the people
grant allegiance: and support to the govern
ment in return for the protection of life, pro
perty and 'reputation, it affords?
Can a government be formed without it, and
if formed, can, it be maintained by any force
whatsoever ? Never ; and for the proof I ap
peal to history. If, then, the day of compro
mise has peened, our glorious, blood-bought
Constitution vanishes-into thin air; if the day
for compromise has passed, then the day for
the observance of All law is passed. If that
be true, then the day for anarchy to mount his
bloody throne has.: arrived, and _the • day for
physical strength and brute force to step in and
assert its authority, is upon us, when the
weakman succumbs to the strong, and the doc
trine that might makes right prevails. No
nonsensical balkier, even though , he does rea
son in high places about ' empty sounds instead
of real ideas, can convince the people, in whose
service he is, that the day of compromise can
ever pass away ; but we know that it will live
forever, shining bt:ightei and brighter as time
rolls on, converting : the; nations of the earth
into a great family, where peace, harmony and
good will alone will prevail ; 'when govern
ments, no longer`necessary, will fade away like
shadows passing over field& Then will that
forerunner of the_ great judgment., the mills
ntum,--have come. ' - _
Before concluding, Mr.. Editor, permit me to
record the opinion of one of England's bright
est intellects upon the subject of compromise.
I quote from Lord Macaulay's miscellaneous
"We know of no great revolution which
might not have been prevented by compromise,
early and graciously made. Firmness is a
great virtue in piibliti affairs, but it has its,
proper sPhere. Consp iracies and insurrections
in which small minorities are engaged, the out
breakings of, .popular 'violence, unconnected
with any extensive .project Or durable princi
ple—are best repressed by vigor and decision.
To shrink.from. them is to. make theni formida
ble. But no Wise - ruler will confound the per
veld* taint with the slight local agitation. No
wise ruler will treat the deeply. seated discontents
of a great party 40 lie treats the conduct of n
mob *hick' deeitioyo , mills and power-inoms.—
The neglect vt this " distinction has heen fatal
even to:governments strong in the power of the
nwno, In ill- movements of -the human mind
which tend to great revolutions there Ina crisis
at which moderaie concession may amend, con
ciliate and preierve." COMPROMISE.
THE ()RDAS COMMITTEE 'OE CONGRESS AND
THEIR LA:BOWL—NO COMPROMISE.
From the New York Herald, Jan. 19.
We publish this morning a heavy budget of
interesting mat ter bearing upon the crisis, em
bracing the records of the labors and the re
ports of the Senate committe of thirteen, and
the House committee of thirty-three at Wash
ington, and the report of the Senate committee
at Albany, "to which was referred so much of
the message of his Excellency the Governor as
relates to our national difficulties," all of which
we submit to the careful consideration of our
The journal of the United States Senate
committee, we apprehend, furl:Mies a conclu
sive exposition of "the true intent and mean
ing" of Mr. Seward's late remarkably amiable
and conciliatory speech. He was one of this
Senate committee of thirteen, and participa
ted, at least to the extent ota yea or nay, in
its proceedings. The Crittenden compromise—
which is considered by conservative Southern
men the least that will be acceptable even to
the border slave Statee—WMl the first thing
tried in committee; and how stands Mr. Seward
upon ihe record? Upon the first proposition,
re-establishing the Missouri Compromise line,
the committee were thus divided
YEAB.—illetsrs. Bigler of Pa., Crittenden of Ky.,
Douglas of 111 , Hunter of Va., Powell of Ky., and Rice
All Democrats except Crittenden, old line
NiTl3.—Messrs. Collamer of Vermont, Davis of Mis
sissippi, Doolittle of Wisconsin, Grimes of lowa, Sew
ard of New York, Toombs of Georgia, and Wade of Ohio,
All Republicans but two, Davis and Toombs,
This, so far as Mr. Seward is concerned, is
a specimen vote. The second proposition of
Mr. Crittenden, denying to Congress the power
to interfere with slavery in those places over
which the federal government has exclusive
jurisdiction; his third proposition, denying to
Congress thc power', to abolish slavery in the
District of Columbia while slavery shallcontinue
to spat in Maryland and Virginia, or either of
those Siates ; his - fourth proposition, declaring
that Congress shall have no power to binder
the transportation of slaves by land or water
from one State to anOthei . , or to a Territory in
which elaves are permitted by law to•bwbeld
and his fifth
. proposition, for indemnity, to the
owneti for, fugitive shies rescued by mobs, or
smuggled,: off: by underground railroad agents.
in Ahefree,Stat4s, were all equally unacceptable
Seward.. Against, every one of these
ProD9o l 9Rill in their ,order, and even 'against
reeOMMeedleg, a repeal of the_ antl , keetiTe.

States,.his-Tote Avillbeloy* rfoorliea. ;
It 411 OUP made manifest ,that . 11 4. Seim*
as the authorised oracle tof the President elect
and the RepuiAloan party, is opposed at this
titto to any ectneensions whatsoever to the
"slave power." - We now perceive very clearly
that the only point is his late speech o f any
practical value is his declaration that "whet'
these eccentric secession and disunion move
ments shall have subsided, and calmness shall
have resumed its wonted sway over the public
mind, say one, two or three years hence, then
and not till then," will he' be ready to vote for
a convention of all the States, to inquire what
amendments, if any, it may be deemed expe
dient to make to the Federal Constitution. This
late speech of his has been aptly described as a
Btondin tight-rope performance. Upon a slen
der cord, Mr. Seward, with hishalancing pole,
has crossed the deep chasm which now divides
the South from the North; but his bridge is
nselass, for it is utterly impracticable to the
undisciplined feet of ordinary mortals.
Mr. Senator Hale, in his speech on the Sub:
ject at the opening of the present session of
Congress, declared that secession is revolution
and civil war; Mr. Senator Wade, of Ohio, next
in order, declares that, as a Republican, he has
no compromises to make;. Mr. Seward, the ap
pointed Premier'or the nee administration,
says the same thing in words and in acts; and
if anything more is wanted to show that the
Republican party has shut the door &gained any
compromise, we submit the vote in the Senate
yesterday on the motion to take up the Critten
den propositions. It will thus be seen that
the Republican Senators were a unit against
the Motion. They all appear to share in the
opinion of Mr. Seward, that it is too soon for
compromises; or in the opinion of Mr. Lincoln,
that it is too late • or in the judgment of Ho
race Greeley, that the Republiean party have
effected a' settlement of the slavery question,
and are "sot to be bullied" out of their victory.
_House Committee of Thirty-three, one
from each State, from the secession of two or
three members, proceededto business in a bro
ken condition. At the conclusion of their pro
tracted and fruitless labors, they came into the
House in three or four detachments, each with
its report. That of Mr. Corwiu, the chairman,
considerably diluted, embodies the compromise
scheme of Mr. Crittenden. The - report of Messrs.
Tappan and Washburne declares in favor of
the Constitution as it LS. and urges the enforce
ment of the laws. Mr. Charles Francis Adams,
(son of John Quincy Adams, and political rep
resentaiive of his father,)-wae disposed, at first,
to make some tionbessions of principle to ap
pease- the South; tint the members from that,
section in the committee having refused their
support to a resolution declaring "a peaceable
aCquieseence" in Mi. Lincoln's election, the
ditty of every good citizen Mr. Adams takes
back his proffered' olive branch, and has no
compromises whatever to propose.
Thus, in both houses of Cengress, all efforts
at a compromise have fallen to the ground.—
The Republican party has no compromises to
make. They intend; first, to see " whether. we
have a government or not ;" and then, one, two,
or tlire,e years hence, they may, perhaps, listen
to reasonable poufhoyn complaints. The term

or, before that day it is feared that two-thirds,
if not all, the Eouthern States will be out of
the. Union. To meet this condition of things.
Me. Lincoln will enter upon hie administration

necessity will probably be an extra session.—

States, we believe, which have not elected their

elect in March anffApril. And in these elections
we again urge another effort for a compromise
by all Union men opposed to the do-nothing
but enforce the laws policy of the Republicans.

it to be her duty to secede, she is willing to

Two nights ago Fort Pickens, Florida,' was
in immediate danger of an assault, but since
that time, a dispatch, signed by numerous se•
cessionitus in Congress, has been sent thither
to their friends, urging them by all means to
avoid a collision with the Federal troops.—
There seems to be no danger, therefore, of. an
immediate conflict in that quarter.
Col. Hayne, of South Carolina, will remain
in Washington ten days or two weeks longer.
His visit hero has been productive of,great

made on Fort Sumpter.
The Alabama members of Congress will await

Georgia will remain here until they receive' an

adopted by the Convention of that State.
Active measures are in progress to have the
course of Virginia, in sending oommiseioners to
Washington on the fourth of February, re-'
