Calhoun s desertion from the whig ranks and his Union with the administration party his followers in Congress As we mentioned in our paper of yesterday have become the open advocates of a dissolution of the Union. Having Esca Good from the restraints imposed upon them by their connection with the great constitutional party oath country they now give full vent to All their Long suppressed enmity against the integrity of the confederacy. A few weeks ago a s. C. Member of Congress wrote a letter to the Charleston Mercury stating that he had prepared two resolutions to submit Ted to Congress one of them Quot declaring that the Constitution having failed to protect the South in the peaceable Possession and enjoyment of their rights and Peculiar institutions it was expedient that the Union should to dissolved and the other appointing a committee of two members from each state to report a it on the Best Means of peaceably dissolving it. Upon the appearance of this publication several papers called upon the Charleston Mercury to give up the name of its correspondent. That correspondent it appears is or. Run to of the u. S. H. Of representatives. Or. R. Has published in the National intelligencer and Globe of the s4th inst. A Long address to his constituents Tho citizens of Beaufort and Coll ton districts vowing the authorship of the letter to the Mercury and giving a copy of the Ruso Lions which to had drawn up to be submitted to Congress.

Men will then be looking out fur Chance and be filled with vain Hopes and tears. Instead of relying upon themselves Uliey will be leaning upon others until the dread catastrophe come and sweep them Down Tho rapids. I he path of safety and Honor is Ever the same. To de a demanding our rights is Une rally to abandon them. Quot the Southern slates Are destined to no Oom Mou Fate in the history of nations. They will be amongst the greatest and freest or the most Abt of the nations. History presents no such bomb Ian Tion for Republican Liberty As that which exists amongst them.

Moreover be see and hear that not alone Indianapolis but almost throughout All Indiana this David hath persuaded and turned away much people saying that mud turnpikes be not Goott roads. 27. So that not Only this our Craft is in Dan her to be set at naught but also that the Temple of the Groat goddess classification shall be disposed and her Economy should to destroyed whom All Indiana and the world worship eth. 28. And when they heard these sayings they were full of Wrath and cried out saying Quot a Kat is of the 29. And the Whol City was filled with confusion and of he land of Lawrence and Andrew of j Eia Ware and the Region thereabout Davids s fellow labourers they rushed with one Accord into the Senate chamber. 30. And when David would have gone it likewise the nullifies suffered him not. 21. And nine other men friends of David desired also to go in but a certain physician which was from the land of Perry drove them away say ing that they were possessed of devils and that if they did but touch the sleeves of the Nullifier a like evil spirits would enter Thern likewise. 32. Some therefore cried Quot taxation Quot but some Quot deep Diggins Quot for the Assembly was confused and the More part knew not wherefore they were come together 33. And they Drew Othniel a tip Ife out of the system men they putting him Forward and he Beckon cd with his hand and would have made i defence unto the senators. 34.

Victoria will be fortunate inde if the loss of her jewel shall augur Only the loss of the canadians. She has come to the throne in times of peace of the world is deceptive. The War of opinions is More Active than Ever was the clash of swords and the life of no one of her age can be expected to close without wars tumult editions and rebellions. Her entry upon the stage is not More promising or splendid More fat acing Ling to the people or hailed with better a Guries than was that of unfortunate Maria Antoinette. The transit of the latter from the throne to the scaffold was Brief and violent. Her example is not without its profit even to those who Cam y look upon the a i Critie.
