l'roni llio Boston Atlas. A VOICE FROM THE SOUTH.

They says "It is confidently hoped that all those who arc of opinion that nothing short of effectual Federal Legislation can savo the sugar plan ters from tho absoluto ruin brought upon them by the struggle of tlio last seven or eight years between them and foreign labor, will not fail to nttend." Tho tiro piefaces it with the following well-timed remarks : Convention or hie Si-ovn Planters.

"IIONO R." Mr Wiso is a Duelist. Ever since ho camo into Congress it has been understood that ho was in favor of settling difficulties " in an honorable way." Thoro havo been several " passages at arms" between Messrs Wise and Stanley. Wo havo an account of one of 'tlioso rencontres in the last National In telligencer. Mr Wiso demanded an expla nation in relation to " bull-dogging," used by Mr Stanley in a privato debate, as an off set to a cliargo from Mr W., that tho Com mittee of which Mr S. is Chairman, had "dogged" the Custoin-Ilouso Commission ers. The reply and rejoinder wcro as fol lows : Mr Stanley. I say again distinctly I made the re ply about bull-dogging for the genllcnian from Vir ginia, and iiiKiided it for him, and him alone let him take it. Mr Wise. That is exactly such a reply as I should have cxpcclcd from a coward. The object of Mr W. in casting tho cpi- I thet of " coward," was to provoko a chal lenge from Mr S. with n view to obtain some advantngc in the fight. This strips duelling of all that goes to excuse or palliate a bar barous practice. Tho practice, in tins form, degenerates into deliberate, dastardly assas sination. When challenges spring impul sively from a sense of injury, they have been tolerated by a false codo of honor. Hut when a professed Duelist is found fishing for TEMI'BHANCE SPEECH. A crowded Temperance meeting at tho groat Tabernacle Church in Now York, was hold last week, it having boon announced tint Mr. Marshall, tho reformed member of Congress from Kentucky, would be present. Wo cannot better occupy a column than in giving tho out lines of his eloquent address, as copied from the New Vork Express. Air. Marshall paid, ho had prepared his ini .igit'tit on, in some measure, lor the scene in n filch ho found himself ; ho had anticipated somewhat the strangeness of tho emotions in standing before the vast assemblage ho was now about to address. That lie in tho month of May, should bo standing before such an an ditnty, land for such a purpose, might well be considered one of tlio phenomena of this grcal moral revolution. The sketch which hail been road by the gentleman who had preceded bun, forcibly shows this to bo one of those great epochs which havo advanced man to that high Mate of civilization in which he now stands. Nothing in his experience in his own State, and it had been far from limited, had shown him any thing like this. Why,, gentlemen, in tho cities of Louisville and Lexington, where tin fortunately I am well acquainted with tho for mer consumption of alcohul (laughter) par ticulary in the city of Lexington, whieh stands in the centre of tho district I havo tho honor to represent in Congress; in those citio, I am credibly informed, Ihe poor misguided man who imbibed tho idea that a dram was necessary to his comfort, could hardly find one in those an cient strong holds of dram shops (laughter and cheers.) Some four months ago, nobody carod loss about temperance or temperance Horietios thin your humble servant, and I acknowledge it with sliainu and contrition. Heloio that time 1 a challenge or higgling for an advantage, ho "over went into a temperance meeting in my should be thrust ivitlinniil.,, ml,, f. l.nnnr" liri'v If ''-v chance I picked up a temperance and " chivalrv." Mr Stanley, after exposing this stratagem as an unworthy attempt to get an advant igo, proceeded thus bitterly: "At the early part cf Ihe session I chose to discon tinue all intercourse, with that gentleman. I did llus voluntarily, for ieauns satisfaclory to myself. Tho gentleman teems always to arrogate to himself a su periority over nil other nun. I have never fell my infeiionty, cxeept in eauine cpnhlies j noi liavol ever seen his superiority lo other men in human virtue. The other day the genih man, in choosing to apply to Mr I'eyton lemarka which wuuin'endcdfor h'ini'-e'f, said, it Whitney haJ been hull dodged, "be had not been oll'iee dogged." Now, sir, I presume this was intended for Ihe cnmmittie or for me, us by my in strumentality tho rcput was brought to tlui House. I had said that Mr Whitney had been bull-dogged in reply to a remark lint the committee had been dog. mug tho I'onimis loners. Well. sir.

I otico read a beau tiful classical fiction, of a maiden pressed toj baldly by some enemy to her purity and honor, who invoked the gods for rescue. In answer to her petition, the fablo goes on to say, she was transformed into a fountain of clear gushing water, and being still pursued she ran under ground and through the ocean in safety, and at length re-appeared in a distant land in all her pristine loveliness. Let the temperance caiu-o follow tho example of the Arelhusa, and in its necessary passago through the muddy waters of political strife, hko her refuse to premit the pure and limpid stream to be tainted by tho briny wave. (Loud applause). Mr. Marshall taid it was possible ho might speak again mi this subject during his May in tlio city, nod ho should be happy to give all who were still under the thraldom of the baleful scourge of intemperance, tho benefit of his own experience. A considerable portion of his pri vate history, ha said, had been put in circulation and in some instances much more than the truth had been told of him. This was the nat ural conscipionco of bin former habits, but tho truth was bad enough. Ho concluded his ad dress with a thrilling appeal to young men, who. under the inllucnce of fashion and false notions of biuotrv and superstition, hold aloof from the cause of temperance. Ho appealed tothcmtocnlM under its broad banner, if for no oilier reason, on the score of its happy cflcts upon tho physical man, causing tho blood to hound in healthful currents through every vein, making tho eyen even of the old inebriate to gladden in the sunlight of a now nature. Mr. Marshall sat down amid thundering plaudits. l'rovious to Mr. Marshall's speech, the So cratary of tho Union read a brief sketch of the forthcoming annual report, in which it is csti mated that the whole number enlisted under the banner of tho Waslimgtouians in the United States is not less than half a milium. Of this number 'JUU.UOO are in the Western States, and it is supposed that every seventh man of them i.i aretormcd drunkard. MR. FORWARD'S TARIFF BILL. Wo find the following synopsis of the new tariff project of the Secretary of the Treas ury, in tho New York Commercial Adverti ser. "Mr. Forward commences by stating that he is not yet quite well informed enouslt upon the subject of taxing sales at auction, of goods imported or oth erwise, as means of reserve, to give an opinion at present. His sentiments as to a 'home valuation' given in his report of December last, on the finance-, roinain unchanged. He is in favor of continuing the existing mode of assessing aj tulurcm duties, guarding it by addition al precautions against fraudulent invoices. In drawing his bill, ho has resarded the necessities of the Government in future years. In making this calculation, he has not proceeded on the tn-is that tho anual appropriations by Congress will he mate rially, if at all, reduced. Tho necessary meas ures for the national defence forbid such an assump tion. He gives estimates of expenditures in 1S12, 3 and 'Al as the measure of income necessary lo be raised during that period.

Tlio "conscientious scruples" of Hullcr arc amusing enough. According to Mr Collector Hoyt's account, liutlcr was so terrified nt the iniquity of thu Tory ofiico holders that ho would not receive half the pay ho wus entitled lo and lltiyt was obliged to read him a democratic lecture, " as well in reforenoo lo his own benefit as to Ihojiublic inferos!," to induce this devout man to necop! any compensation at all for his patriotic services; The efficacy of Hoy t's lectures may be inferred from the following extract from I'oindcxter's report. The sums paid to Butler by the Collector do not ir clude his fees on Custom Ilouso (Solids which wero put in suil, and which wero paid by private persons. These fees amounted to several thousand dollars annually, over and ibovo tho enormous sums paid to him by tho Collector. Hut to the report: Olkaninos rnoM l'oisnr.xTEn's Kkfort. Ilcni. F. Iluller.

Such is thu sympathy and conso lation tlio working-men havo to expect from tho Tories.
