of the question of slavery at the North, which has, at length, produced its malign influence on the slaves, and deprived the Southern home of that sense of security so essential to family happiness. He does not think, however, that this evil will be increased by the election of a Republican President, who is so wisely limited in his power by the Constitution that he has but little power for good or evil.--In view of this and the additional fact that the election was a constitutional one, Mr. Lincoln's election is not regarded as cause in itself for dissolution. The South, too, has Congress , and the Supreme Court. As to the nullification laws of the Northern Legislatures, unless they are repeated, and without unnecessary delay, "it is impossible for any human power to save the Union." If it is not done, the Constitution is violated, and the South "would be justified in revolutionary resistance to the Government." While the President acknowledges this right of the South to res
ined on the same ground. Mr.--offered a resolution that the Chairman shall appoint the committees unless when the House shall order it otherwise. Mr. Morris, (Dem.,) of Ill., wished to offer an amendment, which he read for information, as follows: Resolved. That we are unalterably and immovably attached to the Union of States; that we will recognize in the Union the primary cause of our present greatness and prosperity, and have as yet been nothing, either in the election of Lincoln or from other sources, to justify dissolution, and that we pledge our lives, fortuned and sacred honors to maintain it. Objection was made to Morris' resolution, that of Boteler being distinctly before the House. Mr. Barrett suggested that each committeeman be selected by the State delegations. Mr. Kunkel suggested instead of the words "perilous state of the country," that Mr. Boteler incorporate in his resolution the language contained in Mr. McClernand's proposition.
Important Announcement. A telegraphic dispatch from Springfield to the New York Herald, dated November 30th, 1860, contains the startling intelligence that of the previous day, being Thanksgiving day, Mr. Lincoln, like the rest of Anglo-Saxon mankind, feasted on a roast turkey, and, having special cause to thank his Maker, attended devine service." "In this electrifying piece of intelligence, the Turkey," as is meet and proper, is mentioned , and "divine service" last. We pass over England, that it is the hub of the whole of the creation, the axis of the entire universe, and that when it thanks God that it is not as other men, everybody else is doing the same. The great point, however, is that the eating of a turkey by Mr. Lincoln should be now telegraphed over the United States, when a year ago, a turkey buzzard ending his dinner on a rail, would have been just as likely to have had his performances published. What a race these sycophants are! We have no desire to d

From Washington. Washington, Dec. 4. --While the President's Message is lauded by the residents of the border slave States as a grand, statesman like effort, it is received with unmitigated condemnation by the Northern and Southern extremists. The spirit evinced by members to day in defining their positions, has fallen like a death pall over the hopes of all who ardently hoped for a restoration of amicable and courteous relations between the North and South. The last hope, based upon the reported willingness of the Northern nullifying States to rescind their obnoxious enactments, have vanished by the assertion of several Republican leaders, that Lincoln, being constitutionally elected, will administer the Government according to the strict Republican interpretation. The report that Fort Moultrie will be reinforced by U. S. troops, is without foundation. The Secretary of War's report recommends no increase in the army.
