We have: witnessed several such wild, limaticiil outbursts of public frenzy since the com- mencement of the present "difficulties, when it would have been dangerous to turn the in- flamed multitude in a wrong direction. First we desire to cull attention to the sub- ject of the southern slaves, which, despite all lliul can be done1, will thrust itself prominent- ly before tho people, and in a very alarming u-ay, too. We cannot better introduce this theme tlinn by tue following extract, of u speech delivered by Daniel S, Dickinson, at the Kit'th Avenue Motel, New York City, Slmcs. mid St..

Let us finish things while we are about it, und leave nothing behind us.'' If this had been some impulsive radical.apt to go off nt random, we should have paid biit 111 lie attention to it. Hut Mr. Dickinson is a representative mais. He has been a member of the United .Slates S..-naie from the "-real tiiuto of New York, and a candidate fo'r the .Presidency. The State of Virginia- once presenied him as her candidate to the Demo- cratic National Convention, and he declined the honor. For years he luis been the recog- leader of the most ex; re'iie pro wing of tho New York conservative DJIIIO- j ci'iils Under such circumstances, a deelaralinn like the above from him creates n. sensation, not temporary, but deep and lasting. Ilia ultcriiuce is copied and commented all over the North, nowhere- with censure, and oi-casionally with approval. 'Nor isitto.be denied that Mr. Dickinson spuko tho scnti- meiits of vast, nnmbers of people in the North. who are wearied out with.ilds nnandinjr ne gro excitement, und are resolved now to nuke a lini.sh of ii in some way.

The lime Una at length arrived when we emmot all'ird to slight this -mutter, with u few generous words. have struggled vainly to miiko our Southern friends i madness of the course they, .ire pursuing; but s nee they seem to be bent on com passing our ruin a-well tid I heir own, it is best: thai we should lay hare the whole wound am! probe it to the lull depth. Before doing so, let us repent that the piratical course the South, is purs'iing towards its Norihern creditors .must absolve us' from all considerations of fellow- ship. Those who choose to become ouilaws- must take the justice which is-meted to sm-li. We have, on a recent occasion, given' in full the infamous provision urged in Tennessee wiih regard to northern debts.

In a similar way, our vessels happening into southern ports have been seized before Hie coinmenceinent of any war, and the policy of privateering upon our com- merce is earnestly engaged in.
