r preparation, for arming and organizing our military, and for framing the Constitution of our new Confederacy. No Southern State can, without great imprudence, danger and injustice to all the rest, move until all are ready to move, and should, in the meantime, get ready to move, especially ready in a military sense, before political measures shall precipitate us, while as yet, unarmed, into civil war. Upon these points I may hereafter ask to be heard. In Caroline county, Va., on the 10th inst., a meeting was held, which adopted resolutions advising a convention in this State, denying the right of coercion, and asserting the right of secession. The letter of Secretary Cobb to the people of Georgia has just been printed, and will be dispatched South at once. After referring to the origin and purposes of the Black Republican party, he says: Can there be a doubt in any intelligent mind that the object which the Black Republican party has in view is the ultimate extinctio
discussion and adoption of every important national measure. Virginia has ever been found in the right place, or not far from it. She took the lead on the question of abolishing the slave trade, as the debates in the Convention that made the Constitution will show. She bore her full share in the war of the Revolution, and in the work of forming the Constitution and gathering the original thirteen scattered and separated colonies into one great State. In the great nullification struggle of 1832-33 she was ready to act a part worthy of her position and renown. She sent one of her ablest sons, the late Mr. Leigh, as a commissioner, or sort of ambassador, to South Carolina, who pleaded in a masterly manner, in large assemblies of the impetuous people of the Palmetto State, the cause of Union. This same mission she has again to perform, and exert her just and honorable influence over the people of all the extreme Southern, or "Cotton States." She can do what no other State can do

, then, invoke the spirit of our fathers of the first American Revolution, when they declared themselves independent of Great Britain. Let us instantly prepare ourselves, and let us, in due time and form, proclaim our separation from the North, and our separate and independent existence as a people; and let us, like our forefathers, pledge to each other in the maintenance of that position our lives, our fortunes, and sacred honor. Your fellow-citizen, Philip St. Geo. Cocke. Nov. 30, 1860. N. B — I am not to be understood as advocating or advising what is called immediate secession, nor indeed any precipitate or aggressive action that might invite or provoke a physical contest with the North. We are in the right — let us by all means continue to occupy that position. We have only to know our rights, and to be determined to maintain them. We must, however, take time for conference, for deliberation, for preparation, for arming and organizing our military, and for f

eavored to place before you the facts of the case in plain and unimpassioned language, and I should feel that I had done injustice to my own connections, and been unfaithful to you, if I did not in conclusion warn you against the dangers of delay, and impress upon you the hopelessness of any remedy for these evils short of secession. You have to deal with a shrewd, heartless and unscrupulous enemy, who in their extremity may promise anything, but in the end will do nothing. On the 4th day of March, 1861, the Federal Government will pass into the hands of the abolitionists. It will then cease to have the claim either upon your confidence or your loyalty; and in my honest judgment, each hour that Georgia remains thereafter a member of the Union, will be an hour of degradation, to be followed by certain, speedy ruin. I entertain no doubt either of your light or duty to secede from the Union. Arouse, then, all your manhood for the great work before you, and be prepared on that day to

afety in the Union are at an end, and it only remains to be seen whether our manhood is equal to the task of asserting and maintaining independence out of it. The Union formed by our fathers was one of equality, justice and fraternity. On the 4th of March it will be supplanted by a Union of sectionalism and hatred. The one was worthy of the support and devotion of freemen, the other can only continue at the cost of your honor, your safety, and your independence. Is there no remedy for this sting the Southern States to secede, do they expect to have peace at home, in their union of free States? If they expect such a thing, they will be doomed to a bitter disappointment. Having the control of the Federal Government after the 4th of March, they will, unless they make sufficient overtures to the South, have to decide whether they will allow the Southern States to secede peacefully, or whether they will resort to coercion and war to keep them in the Union. Should they choose coe
Monday has the following: Bishop Fitzpatrick (Catholic,) yesterday requested his congregation to offer up prayers to Almighty God to preserve the American Union, and in the course of his discourse he characterized our nation as the freest on earth. Rev. Mr. Johnson, of Bowdoin Street Church, also prayed for the Union. Other clergymen touched upon the condition of the country. The Rev. Dr. Dewey and the Rev. Chandler Robbins delivered discourses in favor of the nation. Bishop Brounell, of Conn., and Bishop Meade, of Va., have issued prayers suitable to the crisis. The free States in the event of a war. If the Black Republicans succeed in breaking up the present Confederacy, as seems to be their aim, by forcing the Southern States to secede, do they expect to have peace at home, in their union of free States?

the other can only continue at the cost of your honor, your safety, and your independence. Is there no remedy for this state of things but immediate secession? None worthy of your conservatism has been suggested, except the recommendation of Mr. Buchanan, of new constitutional guarantees, or rather the clear and explicit recognition of those that already exist. This recommendation is the counsel of a patriotic statesman.--It exhibits an appreciation of the evils that are upon us, and at the same time a devotion to the Constitution and its sacred guarantees. It conforms to the record of Mr. Buchanan's life on this distracting question — the record of a pure heart and wise head. It is the language of a man whose heart is overwhelmed with a sense of the great wrong and injustice that has been done to the minority section, mingled with an ardent hope and desire to preserve that Union to which he has devoted the energies of a long and patriotic life. The difficulty is that there will
