He Is a disunion man who means t< d-etroy one slngt* letter of that sa-r-d Instrument (Hood ) It kN been said that the South seeks t< Kgrandlse Itself at the expense of other sections tbat we want this government to carry slavery an< force it upon a people who not d'sireit. will all proper rsspect for those who ?ay this, I, as i aou'h?rn man, say tbat m every iou of its utter ance it is f<dee I Good > The South bas aggressed spon Bo section, nor dots she propose aggrcs s.on upon any *ectiou. Sbe asks do tectioa W Meld anything that is her s for her safety or To aer protection All that the South has ever askec of the government is to keep its hands off of us and let the Constitution worK its own way. f Ap clause ] The South has been aggressed upon her so:i has been trespassed upon: four-fifth* nt n territory, In which she a as equal rights, baa beei torn from her; and by the acta of government ah< hss been eflnded from-it Revenues are Uise< at the rate of three dollars in the Month to on from -any other section, for the support of thii great governfuent, but the South makes no com pte nt of me>? dollars ami ceal?

(Applause J All. then, that the South asks In this contest 11 tUat you sball observe the constitutional check' and balances with reference to her She is no' willing that her right* shall be submitted to Um will of mere numerical majorities. For bei fathers, her ancestors, her great patriots, we can not agree that it should be otherwise. It was th< written compact of our fsthers that the minority should receive protection from the Constitution and not the mere seltish and svaricioos will of i preponderant majority. Frrties divided them selves oriffinallv < ??? i " ' 0 j wwwum y u pun mat grfii principle. One desired that the majority abenld rule in all things, while the other?the Statei rights party of Uie country?desired it s boa Id h< different. This latter party carried day in th< formation of the Constitution, sad placed checki upon the advancement of the majority. And thii written Constitution was the compact bv whicl majorities ahotild retrain themselves with refer eate to the rights of minorities. Majorities need no protreMoa tare tlietr own power Hence it ii easv for the North to cry out for the I'alon at all hazards aad undar all circumstance*. It is ru; for the North. with its majorities of millions.

Minorities, gentlemen, ari the true friends of our Constitution, becam- tha Constitution Is their shlrld and their protectioi against the unchecked ud onllcensed will of a majority TApplaus^.j Hence it it that my section of the South standi by that Constitution.

It stated that ttier*- was being cast an immense propeller at that place. Now, sir, It la notso; they are preparing a mould for one to be cast in It also states that it was under the direction "of that skillful master in Iron, Hoffnagle." This too Is a mistake; the propelltr is to be made of brass, and is under the super vis loo of Andrew Leouard, who alone can master it. In reading the article 1 was struck with the im mensity of the propeller, wbuee three blades will be eighteeu feet six inches in diameter. 1 would like to know the diameter of its hub, for It Is con siderably larger than the Niagara's propeller, whose diameter Is only eighteen feet The article ?w iusi itie propeller was u> De pui upon Doara tbe noble Peusacola.
