Tba lutflltgmttr is to-day devoted to yes WftUy'i Congressional proceediaga ??"* the ?aw? of the day Tba Union thai teraelJ *?d effectively aums up thi results to bf ?chi^vcd bj committing tba Kansas imbroglio to a special committee of tba House : "Mr. H?rrl?. of Illinois, a recruit to the Re publican", is ?elected to lead off He open* the work with a most formidable effort to clothe a committee of the House of Representedve* with all tbe powers usually conferred by State legis latures, by which the will of the people is ascer tained upon any given question. The first as sumption in this process is this: that the federal government has been in rebellion against Law rence and Topeka; the second Is, that it is the Crvlnce of Congress to conduct State and terrl tal elections, and to decide their results; the tblrd is, that those who legally adhered to the act of 1^5! ought to be punished and degraded ; the fourth is, that the "iniquitous rebels" and those "mob-law men" denounced by Mr. Doug las and .Mr Harris a year and a half ago are now disfranchised patriots and political martyrs, whose vindu at ion Is to be the chief object of this new holy alliance in American politics." WASHlNG'Tobf NEWS AND GOSSIP The Tore of the South.?We take tbe fo' lowiog extract from the Augusta (Ucorgia) Com stitutionahat, a conservative, influential, and always moderate and well-balanced journal, tu show the temper in which the South, one ar 1 all, view the current efforts to defeat tbe ad miasion of Kansas into tbe Union with the L - compton Constitution. We know not a single newspaper published south of the Potomac thut fails to subscrilw to tbe propriety of these views. With that unanimity on the part of the south ern pres.i of all parties, is it not clear to tho most obtuso comprehension that the defeat ol tbe Leeompton Constitution will instantly aroase tbe South to measures of self-protection such as must suggest themselves to the miudi of all wbo comprehend tho importance of tbe material interests she seeks to protect against tbe successive aggressions of tbe anti-slavery aentiment of tbe times f The following is tbe extract to wbicb we refer: " The people of Kansas, acting in stilct con formity with a law of their Territorial Legisla ture, which Congress, the Kxecutive ai.d the Federal officer* of the Territory, have repeatedly recognized as regular and of binding force, have held a convention to frame a constitution and State government?have adopted a constitution? and after submitting its most iuiportaut feature to a popular vote, and obtaining for it the popu lar sanction, have presented this constitution (o Congress, with an application for admission into tbe Union under it. But the Black Republican Krty of the Territory denied the authority of the ?s under which these proceedings were taken for tbe formation of a State Constitution, and re fused to participate in thein, and the Black Re publican party of the Union resists the applica tion of Kansas for admission Into the Union, because, as they allege, the constitution it pre sents does not represent the will of the people of the Territory These are the facts of the case. Nobody contradicts them?nobody denies that tbe Lecoiupton Constitution is the will of the people of Kansas, legally ascertain*d? noUdy doubts but that the opposition to that Constitu tion is founded in the inveterate hostility of the noitberu section of this Union, to the admission of any new slave State. No one doubts that such la the aecietoftbis opposition, and yet we are told we must not meet it, but quietly succumb to it and Yield Kansas to preserve the Democratic Krty and perpetuate its lease of power! that the mocracy of the North will be . pi it in twain by its admission, and tbe South, abandoned by them, be left to the mercy of a hostile majority in Congress ! "The reply to all this, which we cannot believe it Is necessary to suggest to Southern Democrats in Congress, is, that they are placed thereto pro tect the interests?not of the Democratic partv, but of the South, of the people of Kan?as, and of the whole country?that tbev cannot buy northern support by abandoning southern rights or south ern intetests. or make the great principles, for which tbev are contending in this Kansas im bm>gllo, subordinate to the interests or necessi ties of a party. The demand of the South is the unconditional adimsoion of Kansas under the Le eompton Constitution, and upon it must her Rep resentatives insist, whatever mav be its effect upon tbe fortunes of the Democratic party. That party is an instrumentality?not to secure power aud to retain it. but to assert principles vita! to the existence of the Union, and the equality of the South in it, and carry out these principles in the practical administration of the government It becomes Worthless to southern men when it shall lose tbe ability or the wih to carry out these principles A Mistake* .Polict.?Tbe policy of expe'l ing all tbe free negro population from Vir ginia is again being agitated throughout the State, niw with far more earnestness than be fore. We have never discovered its wisdom or propriety. There is no reason why the laws of tbe State should permit a single tree negro to be a vagrant, and therefore a nuisance and pos itive injury to the population in whose midst be or she dwells, as so many thousands of them are, in Virginia. They should, one and all, be oompelled to labor steadily, systematically and profitably. Tbe rigid execution of rigid po lice laws to that end. is all that is wanted to make thein profitable to tbe industrial inter eata of the State. We do not believe in tbe idea that they are not to be controlled easily and profitably. Tbe extradition of those of them already driven North from Virginia has already done infinite mischief to the cause of tbe rigbta of the South in the Union, and acarcely less to tbe interests of the States in wbicb they now dwell. In Virginia they can ba easily managed; as they cannot bo in New "i ork and Ohio, for instance, where Utopian no tions of the rightsof the black man so uuiver aally prevail among the whites. Hallox-i.tg IicroRE Getting Oct or the Woods.?We are not a little amused with the excitation of many of the Republican-party in Washington over tbe vote of yesterday ia the House, by which the reference of the Kan aka mcasage to the standing Committee on Ter ritories waa defeated by one majority. Those gentlemen evidently imagine thut it involves tbe rejection of the Lecouipton constitution by tbe House They deceive themselves amaz ingly. indeed To us. and to those even of their own siie who are competent to judge iu auch matters, it embraces assurance almost as atrong as Holy Writ, that when tbe bill to ad mit Kansas as a State on that constitution eomes down from tbe Senate, as it surely will not long hence, it will go through the ilraise in ?bort order. We are rarely deceived in such | matters, and stake all our reputation for the accuracy of our prediction of results in similar cases, on the eorrertaess of this intimation of wti li is desliued to be the result of tho current Kansas imbrogiio in tbe House. We have abid ing faith in the cobesrvenera of the Demoeratie organization Hone Thiths - We find in the New Yoik Hr rahl of the ith inr-tanl, an article upon th? tendency of the agitation of the slavery quej tion as involved in the present phase of the Kaaaaa imbroglio which deserves special at tention, for it is replete with truthful state ments of facts aud sensible deductions from tbem. In it, after republishing a paragraph from a Washington letter to the New York Trt. tun*., alleging that unnamed Southern Sena tors and representatives regard the Kansas difficulty with favor, because tending to bring about a dissolution of tbe Coufederaey, tbe Harold says : " It Is in tb'.? view of the subject that the use ttoaal content upon this l,e< ompton constitution aeeumes Its uioat alarming proportions. It 1* In tble view that tbe present crisis becomes the ?KAet ? ? - * i?--..4 ci i*i* ijfi'omfi lUf most inomentons of any In the country's history alnce our colonial revolution. We believe that tbe bulk of tbe Southern |x-ople are still attached to tbe Union, as we know the hulk of the North ern people to be But these Northern anti-slavery tru?*d*s of thirty-odd years have been produc ve of their bitter fruit* In both ^ur mn,t popular Protectant churches have been torn ?7XrPupSn Muon and Dixon's I in. ;our ?fc rient sectional reciprocity of ?ocHI harmoav nd confidence have given way to Sou'hern vigi lance committee. <maln.t ttoohtle* et?l*-am? nd Noithern iind?rground railroad. Wom than all, the go?d old polllical principle of *?c ltonal concession. I. fast giving way to the law of sectional supremacy ana coercion. " Such is the existing atute of things when the North?already possessed of .Ixteen free estate, against fifteen slave State*, and with two new free State constitutions awaiting th. action of Congress?still threaten* the useless, and worse than uaeleaa insult to the South, of the rejection of the Kansas State Constitution, because of the mere abstraction of slavery. Wltnln six months, in any event. Kansas will be a free Slate; and thns, with nineteen free State, against fifteen slave Stales, ar.d with two or three of tho* un dergoing the tranaition to free States, the reader will detect some method in thla disunion mad ness of the Southern pro-slavery ultras. The very existence of the white and the Mark poptilttion of the cotton States depends upon the absolute ntegrity and security of their Institution of slave ry. Hut wh.it security will they have for the fu ure against Northern aggressions, If from North ern prejudices against the South Congress .shall refuse to recognize even the abstraction of slavery in regard to Kansas ? That is the question. "To make the matter worse, so intense lias the fanaticism of our ultra Northern abolition sis be come since the election of Mr. Buchanan by the solid vote of the South agaiuat Mr. Preinontthat our abolition societies have been fused into a gen eral Northern disunion faction, upon the simple ground that the North should cut loose at a single blow from all its debasing associations with sla very. This is something , but the overwhelm ing pressure of the general Northern anti-slavery sentiment, resulting fiom the Kansas-Nebraska bill, U much more Thus the Northern vote ol lJ5<i has emj hatically warned the South that the day of compromises upon slavery is forever gone, should this small concession of tl.e Lecompton constitution be refust d Upon this t? st q. es ion. thertfo e, the solemn and momentous issue ol disunion inay depend, with all its Immeasurable disasters to the peace, prosperity and industiial interests of the country, und especially of tbe North. '?Granted ti a leading Southern politicians be lieve that "the true inteiests of both the North and the South leqol.e ase| aration. and that they are det?i mined to bring it al>out,,, what bcttet Erovocation for deliberate a-tion could they ave, under the state of things deaeribed, than the rejection of this l<ecompton constitution ' I?et it fx* rejected, and we may expect as the next step the secession of the Southern representative? from Congress in a bodv, and an appeal from them to their State legislature* for immediate action in h half of a southern confedeiary. " 'The times are out of joint ' Th<* sentiment* of trateruity, conco d, and mutual conciliation Which have existed between the North and South exist no longer. Distrust, hat rid and fanaticism North and South, have succetdrd; and in every res|>ect, among politicians, parties and people, unsettled, confused and (evolutionary Ideas pre vail. To the mischlcts of the prolonged agna tion of slavery, we tind, at this crisis, the demo, raliziug ? flVcts of the late financial levulsion in full play among all classes, pai tie* and section* of the ( on lit iy. And here we would uiliiionisli our Northern people that while we are slowlv recovering from the disastrous consequences ol tue late financial panic, we are threatened, upon this outside issue of Kansas, with the most dis astrous panic and revulsion, including all oui financial, commercial and industrial interests, that human imagination can conceive, lu fact, the calamitous consequence*, financially and commercially, to the North, from a dissolution of the I'nion, are beyond the limits of human calculation But the rejection of this Lecompton Constitution, from the disunion inclinations ol the South and tbe de-potic. anti-slavery tenden cies of the North, may bring all these calamities upon us before the close of Mr. Buchanan's ad ministration, *' Is this the time, then, for Northern Demo crats in Congtes* to be chattering upon quibbles of " popular sovereignty" in Kansas, when the test question is the test of S uithern confidence in an overshadowing Northern Italatice o power lor the future? Southern men declare that the Union is au expensive concern to the South, but we know that it i* immensely profitable to the North. Southern politicians believe that the South could get along more cheaply and ?afely ai.d prosperously out of the I'nion than lu it; but we know that, separated Lorn the South, the immediate effect to the North Would be au over whelming panic and revulsion Our railroad storks, lank storks, manufactories, shipping and commercial Interests, real estate and the wages of labor, would go down in tbe general crash, involving us, from Boston to Kansas, In univeisal bankruptcy, widespread destitution and confusion. " We call, therefore, upon Northern men in Congress, and upon Northern men at home, to consider what they are doing. We call upou our commercial men of New York, and upon out manufacturing men of the Northern Stales, here, there and everywhere, to look to the momentous contingencies involved in this desperate purpose of abolition agitators to inflict an insult upon tbe South, which Southein men are disposed to in vite as a provocation for secession and a separate Southern republic. Now is the time to think aud act; and there is not much time to lose. We must resto:e the lost confidence of the South lu the good faith of the Noith to the principles and spirit of the constitution, before we can hope to restore the peace of the Union The South i? j alous, because she is Weak; the Noith should be generous, because she is stiong." Th* Assassination or Mr Stover?Wi omitted to mention, in noticing th. recent cow ardly attempt to murder Samuel Stover, Eeq., by some member of the band of Jim Lane's se eret oath-bound followers, that be had just beer e'ected to be State Senator (Democratic) foi Leavenworth county of Kansas Territory. Ai the election of the 4th ult. resulted, the Demo crats had one majority in the Senate and th< House was tied. Thb> atteiupt wa- made whollj to effect tbe political result?the destruction o' the Democratic majority on joint ballot thui to have been effected. It is practically to aid and abet the political schemes of such personi as him who way-laid, to assassinate, Mr. Sto ver, that the Lecompton Constitution meets sc strenuous opposition in Congress, it pains us to have to write. Baltimore.?The persistent anti-slavery at titude in Congress of Mr. Henry Winter Davis is creating no little excitement throughout the South. Its immediate effect is to inducc the Southern newspapers of all parties to publish strong appeals against according the trado of the slaveholding States to a city that persists in sendiug a colaborer with Messrs. tiiddings A Co. to the national legislature From the tone of many articles in Southern journals ou the subject, we doubt whether the effect of the oourse of Mr. Davis in the House will not be to drive millions on millions of her annual sales of merchandise away from the city he represents. ? The Gist or the Controversy.?Wo have to .ay to our many thousands of readers in the South and Southwest, that it is perfectly well understood by their representatives in both Houses of Congress, that the renl question in issue on the Lecompton Constitution is, whether another slaveholding State shall or shall not be admitted under any circumstances whatever, into the Union. Such is the cause of quarrel ?if we may be allowed to call things by their proper names?between the Administration and the main body of tbe Democracy on the one side, and the Republicans and their nomi nal Democratic allies who are seeking to outbid them for tbe favor of the anti-slavery vote in I8?i).
