Chairman Committee of Arrangements
A Significant Fact.
On the clam of Administration, March 4th,
there will be five living ex-Presidents of the
United States,—Van Buren, Tyler, Fillmore,
Rime and Eachanan. Every one of these
retired statesmen favors the plan of compro
mise known as the Crittenden plan, or some
thing aldn to it; while Mr. Lincoln, if the
Republican organs are right—and his speeches
may be taken as an indication .of his policy—
rejects all compromise, and prefers force. Is
his wisdom greater than the combined wisdom
of his predecessors ?
Attitude of the Southern Confederacy.
Some of the Republican papers are endea
voring to reinvigorate the drooping spirit of
el:tertian by representing the speeches of je t , -
rEasoN.DA - cas, President of the new . Southern
Confederacy, as breathing defiance and invi
ting war. The Praline says that Mr. DAVIS
talks of war as a "welcome contingency," and
it . more extensive preparations is the
Northern States than have yet been made. It
seeks to convey the impression that the North
ern States are absolutely in danger of an attack
from the troops of the Southern Confederacy,
with the evident intention of inducing military
preparations by the North. Now nothing could
lie:More false and dangerous than these state
ments. The inaugural address of Mr. D4tvis
does not contain a single word which even hints
at - aggressive war. On the contrary, he states
elearly and explicitly the desire of the sepa
rated stales for 0, peaceful recognition of their
independence. - If words like these can be tor
limed into a menace• of 'the North, we are at a
leas le Understand he*. Mr. Dayis says : "As .
"a necessity, not a choice, we have resorted to
"the remedy of separation, and henceforth our
"energies - must be directed to the conduct of
"our own affairs, and the perpetuify of the
"Confederacy . which we have forma If a
• "just perception of mutual interest. shall per

gi libleal career, my most earnest desire will

suits, and the integrity of our territory and
" jurisdiction be assailed, it will but remain for
sr uo, with firm resolve, toappeal to arms,. and
"invoke the bleising of Providence on a just
. "cause." .
The Unbalance of. this language is, that the
aaparated•States are in earnest, that they desire
peace; but if they are attached they will defend
theinselres. They don't tlmaton to make war
upon the Government, but if the Government
attempts to coerce them, then they will resist—
and their separate Confederacy would be a ridic
ulous farce if they did not. There can be no

Imecom's ckspacity froin tiut report of thg dis
ousel* botareek him 'laid Judge Dciti.imme
which Was Widely circulated by the partizans
of the former during the Presidential contest,
and triumphantly pointed to as - eVidertee that
LINCOLN was an intelleotual.matoh for the Little
Giant; cannot fail to observe a wonderful de
gree of inferiority between the late speeches of
the President elect and them attributed to him
in the Senatorial canvass. At the time the
pamphlet containing the report of the discus
!den Made its appearance, Judge DettOLAS pub
lished a letter stating that his own speeches
were not fairly reported and that Mr- LINCOLN
never made the speeches attributed to him.
There can be no deubt of the truth of this
statement. Compare the strong, vigorous and
able speeches of lineoome, as they appear in
this campaign document, with the weak, con
fused, contradictory stuff recently emitted by
him, and ample evidence is furnished that the
discussion with Douglas was "doctored" for
the benefit of the Republican candidate. We
now understand why it was that the Republi
cans always referred inquirers to this report as
establishing LINCOIdeB claims to etatemanship.
The evidence which Mr. LINCOLN insists upon
giving the people at almost every station on
the line of his circuitous route to Washington
of his total incapacity and frivolity, would in
peaceful times create no other sentiments than
those of disgust and contempt. But at this
critical juncture, when every word .is weighed,
it increases the prevailing alarm to think that
the administration of the government is about
to pass into the hands of a man who has the
heart and the mind to utter so much nonsense.
- As an indication M the effect of these
speeches upon the conservatives of Maryland,
we quote portions of an article on the subject,
taken from the Baltimore Ai/widen, the leading
organ and exponent -of this sentiment :
. "Any attempt at review of the particular
doctrine enunciated in any given speech would
be useless, because he contradicts himself con
tinually—sometimes in the next succeeding
effort, and sometimes in one speech we find
opposing views set forth. The most unac
countable feature in the case is the appearance
of gravity and dignity about the most frivolous,
weak, and unstatesmanlike productions it has
ever been our fortune to meet with. It is hard
to realize that a man who is to occupy the sent
of Washington is so entirely ignorant of the
state of this great nation, and so utterly un
equal to the emergency of the times ; as Mr.
Lincoln appears to be. When he tells us that
there is no crisis, no distress in the country,
nobody injured, and nobody disappointed but
a few scheming politicians, he either perpe
trates a very sorry jest, or he manifests an
ignorance and imbecility that are positively
appalling. A man who can talk flippantly
about an "artificial crisis" when there are
thousands upon thousands of his countrymen
suffering for the common necessaries of life,
and suffering because the success of his party—
whether justly or not does not matter—hes
boon the signal for the disruption cif the Con
federacy, such a man can. have but a very fee
ble appreciation of the distressing realities
"We are the more disappointed, because a dif
ferent course at this particular juncture would
have wrought so much on the side of harmony
and reconciliation. Mr. Lincoln ought to know
that there is a vast amount of embittered reel
ing now existing at both extremes of the coun
try, and a recognition of this fact, even in the
most stately and dignified style, with a very
slight leaning towards compromise And friend
liness, would have won him golden opinions
among true Aim:l46am everywhere. A total
silence upon all the vexed questions of the hour
.would have been far more appropriate than any
of the addresses he has delivered. The grain
of wheat that we are able to gather out of this
abundance of chaff- is in the reflection that a
man of experience and statesmanship, and of
undoubted intellectual ability, is to be the real
head of the incoming Administration. Between
Mr. Seward and Mr. Lincoln there is not much
difficulty in making a choice.
Let the People Decldg,
As the session of Congress - approaches its
close, and it becomes painfully evident that no
relief for the evils under which the country is
suffering can be expected from Congressional
action, the public mind becomes oppressed with
the sadness of our political condition, and de.
mands an opportunity to be heard. It is next
• to a certainty that there is no help to be ex
pected from Congress in any form available for
present relief; but that body can refer the
subject to the people, in the form of a submis
sion of the Crittenden prepettition, or some
similar plan, which can receive the authorita
tive approval or condemnation of the electors
of the country_
It is idle to deny the fact that the Northern
States are many of them shamefully misrepre
sented in our national councils - that the Sen
ators and Representatives holdng seats there
do not reflect the opinions of the people of
their respective States, and if the question
were to be referred to their constituents, their
doctrines and their political acts would be re
pudiated by an overwhelming majority. Be
lieving this, and not doubting that the voice of
the Northern States 'is for compromise and
peace, we demand of Congress, as the last and
only boon they can grant, 'that they allow the
people to pronounce upon the issues before the
country, and declare, by their votes, whether
they will allow the Union to be destroyed,
through the madness Of sectional animosity,
whether, by' adopting the proposition of the
venerable and patriotic Senator. from Kentuck,Y,
or something equivalent thereto, they Will grant
that justice to the slaveholding States, which,
if not fully equal tUtheir demands; will yet be
accepted as a basis of settlement; and lead,
even now, to a restoration of political relations,
and save the Union from disintegration.
The PeaceUonferene e at Washington does
not promise to produce the results desired.—
The incongruity of the elements of which it ii
composed, forbids us to hope for the good
which it seemed capable of accomplishing.—
Destitute of tie anthority to enforce its conoln-
Blois, could it reach those of a satisfactory
character, its action must be chiefly ream
mendatory, and to give such action any vslue,
it must be nearly or quite unanimims. To

They are mairepresented, in many instances,

Let the members of Congress from New York,

jority would now declare, by thousands, in
favor of an honorable adjustment, answer.
If the Peace Conference can agree to no
other settlement, it ought, at least, to unite
upon this, and recommend to Congress an im
mediate submission of the question to the peo
ple. We will be content with that appeal, and
we confidently believe it would result in a
triumphant vindication of the position of those
conservative men, who have sought to meet the
South with honorable concessions, and to stay
the tide of secession, by reason and not by
force. Dare the Sectionalists refuse this trial ?
Have they the hardihood to reject all plans of
adjustment, and withhold from the people the
right to speak for themselves?—iTournai of Coma.
Views of Jefferson and John Q. Adams
Respecting Political Crises.
Hear what Mr. Jefferson says: •
"With respect to our State and Federal Gov
ernments, I do not think that their relations
are correctly , understood by foreigners. They
generally suppose the former to be subordinate
to the latter. But this 113 not the case. They
are co-ordinate departments of our simple and
integral whole. But you may ask, if. the two
departments should claim each the sume subject
of power, where is the common umpire to de
cide between them In oases of little impor
tance and urgency, the prudence of both parties
will keep them aloof from the questionable
ground; but if it can neither be avoided, nor
compromised, a Convention of the States must be
called to ascribe the doubtful power to that depart
ment which they may think best."
With these remarks of Mr. Jefferson the
following declarations of John Quincy Adams
are in harmony. They are taken from a speech
of his, delivered in New York in 1889 just
fifty years after the Federal Constitution went
"But the indissoluble. link of Union between
the people of the , several States in this Con
federation, is, after all, not in the right but in
the heart. If the day should ever come—may
Heaven avert it !—lvhen the affections of the
people in these States shall be alienated from
each other—when the fraternal feeling shall
give way to cold indifference, or collisions of
interest Shall foster into hatred—the bonds of
political association will not long hold together
parties no longer attracted by the magnetism
of concentrated interests and friendly sympa
thies ; and far better will it be for the people of
the disunited States to part in friendship from each
other, than to be held , together by constraint.
Then will be tbe_time for rearertins iu-cue pre-c
cedents which occurred at • the formation and
adoption of the Constitution, to form again a
more perfect Union by dissolving that which
could no longer bind, and to leave the separate
'parts to be united by the law of political gravi
tation to the centre."
Will the present generation heed these les
sons of wisdom imparted to them by those
patriot sages ? Will the people of this country
show their - wisdom' by letting the seceding
States "part in friendihip" from us, and "leave
them to be reunited to us by the laws of politi-
Cal gravitation ?"

Brougham to the Birmingham conference, is

Cessna (Var.) Jan. 19,1661.
MY DEAR HILL—I have again to express my
great regret at not being able to attend the con
ference. You may well believe how deep an in
terest I take in it. There wants some such
thing to give one comfort in these times, when
such untoward events are, it is to be feared, in
progress. The difficulties unhappily inter
posed by various causes (some of a kind not
easily removed) to the settlement of Italy
under a constitutional government, freeing her
from the worst tyranny of modern, times and,
above all, the alarm felt by all the friends of human
improvement at the risk of disunion in America, are
naturally uppermost in one's mind at the present
time. How much it is to be wished that the con
tending parties in both Italy and America would
take a leaf out of our books, and learn the wisdom
as well as virtue of compromise and mutual con
cession ! Our constitution is the genuine re
sult of this wisdom. I heartily wish success to
the conference, and believe me, etc,

its riches are scarcely touched as yet. There
is no more danger that the wheat produce will

hydraulic pipes, fed by 6,000 miles of aqueduct,
may pour out their wrath without stint; the
300 quartz mills, that cost $3,600,000 may roar
day and night without fear of draining the

that there are single quartz veins in the State
which contain more gold than is at present in

Mr. Fenton offered the above as a substitute

The House resumed the consideration of the
bill reported yesterday by Mr. Stanton, autho
rizing the President to accept the services of
volunteers. The question being on its third
reading and engrossment,
Mr. Stanton said there was much misappre
hension as to this bill. It was erroneously
supposed that it was to raise an army to march
into the seceding States to subjugate them.—:
He called attention to the acts which the bill .
proposed to amend to show the necessity for
the present legislation. The law of 1795 pro
vides for calling out the militia for the suppres
sion of an insurrection in any . State against
the authority of the United States. The second
section provides for calling out the militia to
aid in the execution of the laws when they are
resisted by a combination too powerful to be
overcome by the ordinary judicial process. In
his judgment the laws cover eases of insurrec
tion against the authority of the United States ;
but he found that the ex-Attorney General
entertained a different ttpinion, and that it only
authorized the President to call out the militia
to aid the officers of the court in executing a
process to overcome combinations against the
execution of some particular law, and did not
authorize the calling out of the militia to put
down a general insurrection; but to remove
and to avoid this ambiguity the Committee on
Military Affairs had deemed it to be their duty
to extend the law, not-to any specific case, but
wherever there is resistance to the authority of
the United States.

FRANCE.—The speech of the Emperor to the

He says that he had endeavored to prove that
France sincerely desires peace and that without
renouncing her legitiniate influence, she does
not pretend to interfere where her interests are
not concerned. Non-intervention had been his
policy in the Italian complications, and his mo
tive for sending a fleet to Gaeta was to furnish
a last refuge for the King. Erroneous inter
pretations and a partial departure from neutral
ity at length necessitated its withdrawal. He
points to the recognition of the annexation of
Savoy and Nice as an evidence of the mainte
nance. of the rights of France, and to the pro
ceedings in China as a war for the honor of
France which is avenged. He rejoices at the
restoration of the Christian Cross to China, and
to the protection of the Syrian Christians
against fanaticism. He considered it necessary
to increase the garrison of Rome when the se
curity of the Pope appeared to be threatened.
