said. Now I am not a Yankee. There is no New England blood in me, and I do not answer impertinenatsoever, which New York, Pennsylvania, and New England could not stand upon. I learned from him t our day. I remember that it was the men of New England, who lived only two or three times as long as we have lived, I say, since these men of New England invented the greatest political discovery iican states in America was the invention of New England. I have always admired and respected the people of New England for that great discovery, which, after having been put into successful operatitic or republican state. You, gentlemen of New England, do not like always to hear the word democrut of secession in California, secession in New England, and lastly, you begin to hear of secession I was a boy, Massachusetts and some of the New England States got the same idea of contumacy for tt; that, whereas, when Massachusetts or any New England State, gets in a pet and proposes to go out

d a patriotic rage that envelopes all parties and all classes throughout the Union States henceforth. The President has issued his proclamation calling out 75,000 men to put down the rebellion, and convening Congress on the Fourth of July. Gov. Morgan of this State, will at once call out a contingent of 25,000 men, and Gov. Curtin of Pennsylvania will do the same. New regiments are already forming rapidly, in anticipation of the proclamation. N. Y. Sun. It is now for the people of New England, especially, and of the great North-West, who have so earnestly demanded a vigorous policy, to prove the sincerity of their zeal by rallying to the support of the Government in this hour of its peril. Treason has boldly lifted up its head; it has marshaled its hosts; it has bid impudent defiance to the Government; it has cannonaded and taken a celebrated fortress; its Secretary of War has had the insolence to make a public boast that the Secession flag will float over the national capita

mparatively brief space from Broadway to the Jersey City Ferry, to be numbered by dozens or by scores: every building seemed like Captains of Fifties. It was flag, flag, from every window from the first floor to the roof, from every doorway,--in short, it was flag, flag,--and of quite large sizes, too, till the wearied eye refused the task of counting them. Such was the display along the route of the Seventh. Such is and will be the route for all noble troops entering our City from the New England States. Around the Armory of the Seventh Regiment crowds gathered at an early period of the day, and moved on, only to be replaced by other crowds. So the excitement was kept up, till towards three o'clock the throng became stationary. It was, by no means, an ordinary crowd. Well-dressed ladies, men whose checks can be honored at the best Banks for as many dollars as would build a church of excellent architecture, were among them. They were about to witness the departure of the Sev
President, which was a brave and good one, was issued on Monday morning last. Its effect upon a patient, forbearing, and long suffering people was like the blast upon Roderick's bugle horn--'twas worth a thousand men. It was like the presence of Napoleon at the head of his army, which the combined despots of Europe were wont to estimate as a reinforcement of one hundred thousand men. It was the first trumpet-note of freedom. Its echoes reverberated among the hills of peaceful and happy New England, across the fertile valleys of the Susquehanna and the Genesee, and over the broad prairies of the West, sweeping them like their own destructive fires, until the dying cadences were lost, mingling with the paeans of rejoicing that came answering back to us from that last and brightest star in liberty's greatest constellation. Never before was a Government so cordially sustained by the people. They have responded to this call upon their patriotism with a loyalty, a devotion and enthusia
usetts can finish up. (Cheers.) Blame me not that I make every thing turn on Liberty and the slave. I. believe in Massachusetts. I know that free speech, free toil, school-houses and ballot-boxes are a pyramid on its broadest base. Nothing that does not sunder the solid globe can disturb it. We defy the world to disturb us. (Cheers.) The little errors that dwell upon our surface, we have medicine in our institutions to cure them all. (Applause.) Therefore there is nothing left for a New-England man, nothing but that he shall wipe away the stain that hangs about the toleration of human bondage. As Webster said at Rochester, years and years ago, If I thought that there was a stain upon the remotest hem of the garment of my country, I would devote my utmost labor to wipe it off. (Cheers.) To-day that call is made upon Massachusetts. That is the reason why I dwell so much on the slavery question. I said I believed in the power of the North to conquer; but where does she get it?
plause.) God bless you, women of New York! Rome in the days of her culminated power never witnessed scenes like these. The world has never seen it. Here palatial parlors are devoted to the manufacture of useful and necessary articles for sons, brothers and fathers, who have gone to the war. (Applause.) You have met here to systematize your work and to invite the cooperation of others throughout the land. Let me tell you they will come from every green hillside and every valley all over New England, my home, and from every loyal State. (Loud applause.) They will cooperate with you; they will form one grand central point, pour in their contributions, and send to you those who are competent to alleviate the sufferings of the sick and wounded. (Applause.) They will cooperate with you, with their humble hands and their means — will join with you in their prayers to Heaven, to aid that cause which all know to be so just. And with your cooperation — with your prayers and appealing to t
d who addressed you last night, (Mr. Toombs,) as he recounted the evils of this Government. The first was the fishing bounties, paid mostly to the sailors of New England. Our friend stated that forty-eight years of our Government was under the administration of Southern Presidents. Well, these fishing bounties began under the e wise for this Legislature to do this now is the question. To the convention, in my judgment, this matter ought to be referred. Before we commit reprisals on New England we should exhaust every means of bringing about a peaceful solution of the question. Thus did Gen. Jackson in the case of the French. He did not recommend rand the other Western States, will compel their Legislatures to recede from their hostile attitudes if the others do not. Then with these we would go on without New England if she chose to stay out. A voice in the assembly — We will kick them out. Mr. Stephens--I would not kick them out. But if they chose to stay out they mig
if they appear, it will not be, their kindred say, to fight with their best friends. In the free States the people of color are eager to help on the loyal side. They have for many weeks past formed themselves into companies, and got themselves drilled and armed — refused at present a place in the loyal forces, but resolved to be ready for the call, which they believe will come. The authorities of Pennsylvania have refused a passage through their State to companies of free negroes from New England and New York; but the black volunteers extend their organization week by week. They are not a very large element in the population; but they avow their determination to offer themselves to a man, leaving only the infirm and children out of their training system. They certainly believe that the question is that of the abolition of Slavery; and their preparation has the religious fervor and solemnity which befit such an occasion as the redemption of their race. Under such circumstances,
le to give an idea to one who has not seen its manifestations, the people of New England and the populations of the Northern States, whom they regard as tainted beyoinduce us to submit to any union with the brutal, bigoted blackguards of the New England States, who neither comprehend nor regard the feelings of gentlemen! Man, w limbs. She has been bound in a Maxentian union to the object she loathes. New England is to her the incarnation of moral and political wickedness and social corruhe land. Believe a southern man as he believes himself, and you must regard New England and the kindred States as the birthplace of impurity of mind among men and oy. Who fills the butchers' shops with largo blue flies! Assuredly the New England demon, who has been persecuting the South till its intolerable cruelty and ipresentatives — for he will not call them the ancestors — of the Puritans of New England, and he thought that they were animated by the same hostility to himself. H
‘76 being selected by the British as the centre of their operations, commanding, as they did, the Hudson Riher, and acting in connection with a force from Canada, their march into Westchester was designed to control the two principal routes to New England, by the way of Rye and Bedford, and so out off the American army from its eastern supplies. Washington, penetrating their designs, skilfully conducted his forces northwardly from King's Bridge, moving in a line parallel with the British, keepthful and eloquent expounder. New York, herself the noblest eulogium on the Union, following close behind with her gallant Seventh, reaching Washington by a march already famous, and insuring by their presence the safety of Washington. The New England States, Pennsylvania and the Great West, pouring in their quotas with generous rivalry, and our foreign population rising instantly to the grandeur of the occasion, and hastening to the defence of their adopted country, present features of str
