Letter from Mr. Toombs on Amending the Constitution. Acousta, Dec. 15. --It is understood that Mr. Toombs is about leaving for Washington. He has just published a letter referring to the fifth article of the Constitution, in which he says: If the Constitution be amended, the amendments should be such as could neither be evaded or resisted by abolition States, and give full and ample security to Southern rights. Then if the Republican party will vote for the amendments, or even a majority vote for them in good faith, they can easily be carried through Congress, and thus thinks it would be reasonable and fair to postpone further action until the Legislatures of the Northern States could be conveniently called together for definite action of amendment. If the Northern States refuse, be urges Georgia to secede, at the furthest by the 4th of March. The Georgia Legislature adjourns next Wednesday. There is nothing transpiring here of general interest.

That neither Congress nor the people of a Territory, during its Territorial condition, shall by legislation or otherwise, annul or impair the rights of property recognized by the laws of any of the States.
