e Atlantic and along the Gulf of Mexico, is in the hands of the slave owners. The mouth of the Mississippi is theirs; the Missouri, and Arkansas, the great arteries of the extreme West, are theirs. Virginia pushes a spur of territory to within less than a hundred miles of Lake Erie, and thus divides the Atlantic free States from the West in a manner highly dangerous to their future union.--Indeed, it is doubtful whether the connection between New York and New England, on the one hand, and Illinois and the neighboring States on the other, could long survive the total separation of the South. The North would have a territory as straggling as that of Prussia, and the Western region would soon find it advantageous to dissolve its union with the Eastern. In the meantime, all the riches of the New World would be in the grasp of the Southerners.

Illinois Legislature. Chicago, Feb. 2. --The Illinois Senate Committee on Federal Relations yesterday reported that, with the earnest desire for the return of harmony among all our sister States, and out of respect to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Governor be requested to appoint five Commissioners to attend the Convention at Washington on the 4th inst. The second resolution says that the appointment of a Commissioner by the State of Illinois, in response to the invitation of the State of Illinois, in response to the invitation of the State of Virginia, is not an expression of opinion on the part of this State that any amendment to the Federal Constitution is required to secure the people of the slaveholding States adequate guarantees for security of their rights, nor an approval of the basis of the settlement of our difficulties, proposed by the State of Virginia, but is an expression of our willingness to unite with the State of Virginia in an earnest effort to adjust the present unhappy controversy in the spirit in which
