t of opinion, not of force, of mutual affection, not of the sword, which they support. The measure of Coercion will only consolidate the whole South as one man, whilst, on the other hand, it will not unite the North, but divide it, and, in all probability, rally to the Southern side multitudes of brave and patriotic men in the free States. In any event, the Champion of Force need not expect to find the blood of Yorktown extinct in Virginia, nor have the hunters of Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana, who made New Orleans memorable in the late war, left behind them degenerate successors. If a few raw militia men, having only a temporary earthwork defence, could drive back and annihilate the choicest soldiers and conquerors of Europe, we apprehend that the Wide Awake levies of Lincoln need not expect an easy victory. Moreover, it is evident, if Coercion is to be employed against Secession, it is becoming every day more probable that the new President will have a wider theatre for
the majority of the people. But many are devoted to her cause, and I have heard from a man who mixes with the lower orders that secession is on the increase among them. At the Theatre we have a drama of the French Revolution, which the managers, I suppose, deem appropriate to the times. A gentleman just returned from a month's sojourn in South Carolina tells me that never before in all his life has he seen a whole people so imbued with a deep, solemn purpose, as are those people there. "If," says he, "any man wants to be cured of the opinion that South Carolinians are acting in a fit of wild, rash passion, let him spend three days among them, and my word for it, he will find that he has been dreaming. This is an uprising of the whole people. They will never come back into this Union until they are conquered." I received a letter from Louisiana last night, which closes by saying, "this State will be out of the Union, as certain as fate, by the 1st of February." Zed.
nvention yesterday afternoon passed the Ordinance severing the connection of South Carolina with the Federal Government; and that Commonwealth, therefore, must now be considered, as she herself desires to be considered, no longer a member of the Confederacy, but a Foreign State! There is an oppressiveness in the thought which must fall with crushing force upon every patriotic near!, and give rise to forebodings of even worse calamities to come. Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, we fear, will go next. Our future is impenetrably dark; and, new that the first link is sundered in the chain which has bound us together in one great family of States since the days of the Revolution, we feel that only the hand of Almighty God can save us from destruction. [from the N. Y. Tribune.] According to the general expectation, that State has gone out of the Union; but if we do not forget that it is not the first time she has done so, we shall tremble the less. We re
