ylae of Freedom. During the absence of the committee, Baker P. Lee, Jr. Esq., responded to a call in his usual felicitous and eloquent manner; and when it was announced, during the progress of the meeting, that the flight had commenced at Sumter, the enthusiasm was intense and the applause deafening. As soon as the meeting adjourned, the crowd proceeded to make preparations for the erection of a secession pole and flag, the latter of which was made by the fair fingers of the fairest of Hampton's daughters. I hear that it is in contemplation to erect one on a larger scale, next Saturday, as this, gotten upon the spur of the occasion, is not commensurate with the spirit of those who had it in charge, nor of the people. Wild hurrahs and volleys of musketry greeted it, as it flung its folds to the breeze; "And many an eye danced to see That banner in the sky." The welkin rang with loud calls for "Hope," "Hope," to which that sweetest of Virginia poets gracefully resp

s controversy with Gov. Gilmer, in 1840, to the endorsation of the Helper Book, and his speech at St. Paul, Minnesota, has been one illustrious series of disinterested friendship and fraternal affection for the South. We see the manifestation of this same brotherly feeling in the appointment of Chas. Francis Adams and Wm. L. Dayton, both defeated candidates of the Black Republicans for the Vice-Presidency of the United States, to the most important foreign missions, those of St. James and St. Cloud. It is not less evident, in the judicious selection of that celebrated philanthropist, Joshua R. Giddings, as Consul general at the Canada terminus of the underground railroad, and of the valorous Burlingame as Minister to the Court of Victor Emanuel, to say nothing of the Red Republican, Schurz, (is that his name?) the White Republican, (I suppose we may call him,) Cassius M.

Mother of Empires; how the bluch of shame tingles my cheek as I write these lines ! If you will submit to abolition rule, tear down your glorious "Sic Semper Tyrannis," and raze the battlements of Yorktown; let "time's effacing finger" wipe out the record of your earlier history; let decay and ruin be written on Mount Vernon and Monticello, and desolation on the graves of your Henry and your Nelson; let your children, already ostracized from all offices of trust, except at the price of disloyalty, be banished from the homes and graves of their fathers, and then granting them some "sweet oblivious antidote," let them die in humiliation and obscurity, while all Yankeedom shall squat and trade upon thy lovely plains, thy quiet valleys, and thy mountain summits.

t three, To make a new Thermopylaeæ !" Our young men are already rallying beneath that flag of which we have before spoken.--Two sons of Hampton were recently in commission at Fort Barrancas, Fla.; two have since gone to the sunny South, to seek service in the army of the Confederate States; one Lieutenant in the United States army, and one Midshipman in the navy, have resigned, to fight the battles of the ever-glorious seven, and other are preparing to imitate their noble example. It is but just to add that all of these chivalrous soldiers are former students of the Hampton Academy, and one Professor in that institution but awaits the trumpet's sound to hurry to the conflict. The above facts speak the sentiment of Elizabeth City, and if the rest of the States responds as well, Virginia will not much longer be field in inglorious vassalage to an abolition despot! But this letter has already, I fear, exceeded proper limits, and I forbear to pursue the theme. Palmetto.

gentlemen of both the old dead parties, unanimously reported resolutions, which were unanimously adopted by the meeting, affirming the right and duty of the State to dissolve the unholy alliance which now binds her to a Northern Abolition Union, and declaring that, heeding alike "the instincts of self-preservation, the suggestions of interest, and the demands of honor," she should seek shelter beneath the Œgis of her own sovereignty, and unite her destiny with that heroic band led on by South Carolina, the Thermopylae of Freedom. During the absence of the committee, Baker P.

Gilmer, in 1840, to the endorsation of the Helper Book, and his speech at St. Paul, Minnesota, has been one illustrious series of disinterested friendship and fraternal affection for the South.
