Predicted Twenty-four years ago.

--It is a remarkable fact that the present secession movement was foreshadowed just as it has occurred in a work called the "Partisan Leader," attributed to the pen of Judge Upshur, of Virginia, who was killed by the bursting of the Peacemaker. In that work, under the guise of a novel, it was professed that coming events were described. The Gulf States, it was described, had seceded in consequence of the election of a Northern President, and Virginia and other Border States were about following suit. An attempt was made to form treaties with foreign nations, and free trade was established, which gave the South an unexampled career of prosperity. The current of events twenty-four years later has given these predictions the form of fulfilled facts.
