ure is being prepared here, which will cover the entire sectional issue in dispute. It agreed upon, it will leave no State a shadow of an excuse for seceding. It re-establishes the Missouri line, and extends it to the Pacific. Another correspondent, looking at the other side of the picture, says: The Southern boat to-day brought a large number of members of Congress, who are free in expressing their belief as to the purposes of the Southern States. In South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi Louisiana and Florida, they say there is no longer a Union party. The issue in each is between separate secession, and conference, and conference, and consultation.--No man dares raise his voice for the Union, nor is there any anticipation in those States that Union can last ninety days. Immediate secession is the prevalent sentiment. Since the arrival of the evening trains, there seems to be out one opinion about a dissolution if the Union, as no one believes the Republ
re depleting and robbing every day of its elements of vitality. In New England, says the Bulletin, the product of wheat fell off in ten years, from 1840, fifty per cent., from two million bushels to one million, and the decline has been going on since. If it is said that this is owing to the natural barrenness of New England and the diversion of industry from agricultural to manufacturing pursuits, what shall be said of Georgia, and the comparatively new States of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama, much of whose soil is naturally rich, but whose falling off in the production of wheat in the time mentioned, has been still more striking. The yield fell off from twelve million bushels to five in a single decade. The decrease in the great wheat-producing State of New York has been equally remarkable. In 1848, the crop was more than thirteen million bushels, while last year it dwindled down to six. Even the great Northwest, whose extraordinary yield last year has kept the price of flo
he President's plan South Carolina to postpone secession on the 4th of March next will hardly avail.-- As South Carolina member said to me this evening, "We have spiked that gun." Senator Seward is willing to grant the South Almost anything, but the Tribune of this morning says, "Let the winds howl on; the free States will not surrender their principles on account of threatened disunion." Greeley's own article states the case, but takes no decided ground, so there is no day light yet. All that money, beauty, place and power, can do, will be brought to bear in favor of Union. We shall see Southerners, heretofore fiery, backing down. Messrs Cobb, Thompson, Jeff, Davis, and Fitzpatrick of Alabama, have, it is rumored, yielded to the President's pious appeal for staving off secession. If so, the South will be paralyzed, and the Union saved for a time.--Mississippi is reported fishy. Still, it is believed that six States will be out of the Union before thirty days. Z.
From Washington Washington. Dec. 3, --Among the various prepositions for quieting the present political troubles, is that so much of the President's Message as treats of them be referred in the House to a select committee of members from all the States, to bring forward some compromise. Many who formerly believed that South Carolina only will secede, are now satisfied from assurances from those representing Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, that these States, too, will make common cause with South Carolina. There appears to be nothing which gives conservative men any hope for a continuance of the Union. The Supreme Court of the United States met to-day. Judge Taney and all the assistant Judges but Wayne, were present. They subsequently personally waited upon and paid their respects to President Buchanan. The members practicing at the Supreme Court Bar held a meeting and passed resolutions of respect to the memory of Judge Daniel. The Message will b
