Jefferson Davis Mississippi has just is the Louisiana convention Bas passed a unanimously been elected president the con  i Resolution declaring that it receives with the federate states North America. Hon. A. H. Stephens Georgia wan elected vice president by a similar Rote. ---.-. Latest from Washington. Such invasion the soil the South it All hazards and to the last extremity. The lower Branch the South Carolina has adopted resolutions condemnatory the principle coercion and affirming the duty the state to resist the passage Federal troops. The resolutions declare that seceding states acting in their Sovereign character through convention having withdrawn whether by secession Resolution the Federal authorities have no Power under the Constitution to make War upon and subjugate these states any other states which May hereafter adopt the like action and that it will be the duty the constituted authorities North Carolina to the passage Federal troops through her territory to coerce and subjugate a seceding Southern state and that North Carolina ought to resist any attempt at coercion either by land sea by All the Means in her Power. Virginia Missouri and Arkansas have adopted similar resolutions and we have no doubt that the first attempt at coercion would unite the entire South in the language the resolutions As one the republicans know this and will never attempt coercion. Coercion. The National Zatelli Eucer is habitually mild As our readers know and rarely Speaks with vehemence upon any subject but it will be clearly seen by the following article that it decidedly opposed to the idea anything like coercion the policy observe that Man our Southern continue to protest against the doctrine coercion while the Legislatures some the states Are burdening their people with heavy taxes in order to put them in formidable military array against prospective invasion by the Fede ral government we would deeply regret to believe that there was the least foundation for any apprehensions this score for whatever May be said and we think justly said in opposition to the right secession it must be apparent that the coerced retention any state in a nominal Union with her sister states would create an anomaly in our government even greater than that which it sought to remove. coercion no a right it certainly is in a remedy Subr the wrong it purports to cure a Noe so far from heating the breach it could Only serve to make the schism wider and More incurable. No Power logic can Ever suffice to convince us that the fathers and founders thu government intended in any Way directly indirectly to recognize the right secession and thus to Plant in the b Jay politic the seeds it sown dissolution and death but again Stine Tew our civil being any such resort is had to civil suicide it is Plain that the vital spark cannot be reanimated by the Shock arms. Thus far it must be admitted that the Federal government has manifested any thing but a disposition to coerce the seceding states. It has rather preferred to practice for Bearance i the presence acte Rofeh Tirro. Feeding from any foreign Power would by to serve. The gangue thinks that this added , Tva resulted in immediate to the Bill oblast session which is Ditill in for be War.

Thiu we suspect is merely the old Story the Imp Clience Camp Lile restraint and control always Felt by the citizen soldiers this country when not in Active service. No specific charge appears to be made against maj. Chase. Hints cheer is Friendly to a generous diet promotes vitality and capability Lor action but High living is not always Good living. Lei All your Hes be nutritious but Plain and wholesome. Three meals a Day Are enough and the second be not promptly digested the third should be omitted. The latter should always be Light and taken at least two hours before bed time. Nothing should Ever be taken Between the regular meals. Regularity in the Lime taking meals is particularly important and we should allow no Ordinary hindrance to interfere with it but we must not eat when we have no appetite. It is better to wait till the next meal time. Eating without an appetite is one the most fatal common errors food taken under such circumstances generally remains for a. Long time undigested and May become rank Poison in the stomach. We should also avoid eating when greatly fatigued when excited by any violent emotion. Tranquility Aud cheerfulness promote digestion. Chatted food is half digested the proverb says and truly. A meal eaten slowly to the midst pleasant conversation is a Lily assimilated and at once invigorates the body and brain another composed the same viands but eaten rapidly and in silence May prove but a clog upon the energies both. Eat slowly Mast Cate thoroughly and possible rest awhile after each meal. In reference to Quantity wit can Only say eat so much As the system demands and is capable assimilating. And no sore. Drunkenness is deplorable v destructive. Kitchener says but her demure sister gluttony destroys a Hundred Tor her Job. Physical per action. Stupidity a , says . Buckland left on the rocks never go Back to the water on their own Accord they wait till it comes to them. This peculiarity was observed after a landslide on the Oast Dorsetshire England which bits great weight forced up a portion the Bottom the sea. On this suddenly elevated bit ground there happened to be several lobsters who doubtless thought the Low tide had taken place with uncommon celerity and that it Koukl return again. Anyhow the foolish creatures waited for the tide to come up and cover them. course it never did come up again they remained in their places and died there although the water was in Many instances Only a few feet from their noses. They had not the sense to Tumble into it and save their lives.

Westcott the committee arrested in Freestone county a my by the name Gilbert and brought him Back to Palestine where he was surrendered to the civil authorities. 3gr the newspapers publish the monthly statement the United states treasurer showing the balances subject to draft in the slave states on the 1st inst., As an indication the amounts that May be obtained by confiscating such funds in the part the seceding states their citizens. This statement was True at the time its Pul location but it is no longer so. Eor example $6,892 is set Down As in the bands the depositary at Galveston. The sum $7000 Bas since been drawn for and placed to the credit the disbursing agent the census Bureau to pay the officers engaged in taking the census in Texas and is paid to such persons on the usual warrants. The balance the funds at Galveston have been appropriated towards the expense the Public building now in process construction Here and there will still be a deficit More than fifty thousand dollars for that work to be paid out other funds the United states. There is reason to apprehend that Louisiana Bas seized inadvertently funds intended for this building and the fort at Galveston. Eos. Civilian publications having been made in my absence both in the news and Texas Christian advocate calculated to a lire my character have to request you to give the following unvarnished statement a place in your valuable paper. Last August when at the North a tit was instituted against me in Kings county on transactions which transpired about ten years since in which it was attempted to Nake me account for the acts others Over whom 1 had no control. Being a nou resident i wa3 held to Hail. Having a Good subs Antral defence i employed a lawyer to defend me and deposited with him my papers and after my return Home i sent him other Dormi edits.

True there is a respectable minority that convention who opposed this act not because they desired to preserve this Union but because they wished to secure the co operation All a m Jonty the Southern the planting Stales. There Are Many co operation its but 1 think not one unionist in the convention All Are in favor withdrawing from the Union. I am therefore warranted in saying that this is the act the freemen Alabama. In taking this m Unen Lous step they have not ated hastily a advisedly. It is not the eruption sudden spasmodic and violent passion. It is the conclusion they have reached after years bitter experience enmity in Justice and injury at the hands their North Ern Brethren after Long and painful reflection and after argument Perssion and entreaty have failed to secure them their constitutional rights. Instead causing Surprise and incurring censure it is rather matter amazement not reproach that they have endured so much and so Long and have deferred thu act self defense until . It is now nearly forty two Vears since Alabama was admitted into the Union. She entered it As she to 3 out it while the con Deracy was in convulsions caused by the hostility the North to the Domestic slavery  the South. Not a decade no sen ice a Lus hum has elapsed since her birth that has not been strongly marked by proofs a a the growth and Power that anti slavery spirit it the Northern people which seeks the overthrow that Domestic institution the South which is not Only the chief her Prosperity but the very basis her social order and estate polity. It is to Day the master spirit the Northern states and bad before the secession Alabama Mississippi Florida South Carolina severed most the Bonds the Union. It denied us Christian communion because it could not endure what it styles the moral leprosy slave holding it refused us permission to sojourn even to puss through the North with our property it claimed Freedom for the slave brought by his master into a Northern slate it violated the Constitution and treaties and Laws Congress because designed to protect that property it refused us any share land acquired mainly by our diplomacy and blood and treasure it refused our property any shelter Security beneath the Flag a common government it robbed us our property and refused to restore it it refused to deliver criminals against our Laws who fled to the North with our property our blood upon their hands it threatened us by solemn legislative acts with ignominious punishment we pursued our property into a Northern suite it murdered Southern men when seeking the recovery their property on Northern soil it invaded the Borders Southern states poisoned their Wells Burnt their dwellings and murdered their people it denounced us by deliberate resolves Pond a meetings party Enn mentions and religious and even legislative assemblies As habit Ual violators the Laws god and the rights humanity it exerted All the moral and physical agencies that human ingenuity can devised diabolical malice can employ to Heap odium and infamy upon us and to make us a by word hissing and scorn throughout the civilized world.

The platform the a publican party 1855 and 1860, we regard As a libel upon the character and a declaration War against the lives and property the Southern people. No bitterer offensive calumny could be uttered against them than is expressed in denouncing their system slavery and polygamy As twin relics it not Only re Roaches us As unchristian and beaten feb but imputes a sin and a crime deserving Universal scorn and Universal enmity. To sentiment is More insulting More hostile to our Domestic Tranquility to our seat order and our social exis Fence than a contained in the declaration that our negroes Are entitled to Liberty and Equality with the White Man.
