Sbnatok Masoji's Hon* ^rsakixo ?Tbe largest meeting ever held In that town was convened in Winchester, Va., (where Senator James M Mason resides,) on the 9th Inst., to take into consideration the state of the times. It was composed of the formers, mechanics, and working* MAP. A# r^^.UW V* n n/4 ?sr<?K * unanimity resolved? "That the dismemberment of the Union would entail upon us a longer and blacker train of woes tban baa ever, yet, in the Providence of God, afflicted any people.*^ "Tbat the trouble Ml been brought about by the wanton and wicked fa*atiei.<m of the North, sod the gasconading folly and sinister selfishness of the demagogues of the Soy'.k " J I "That experience will not have demonstrated th? itr practicability ef maintaining the Union " 'That n general convention of all the States, as provided in the Constitution, should be called as speedily as possible, in which the (*oi:tb should, with o ie voire, and a united front, demand and ' obtain their rights " " That we recognise the Government of the Federal Union, within the sphere of it* appointed dutiea and delegated powers, as positive, potential and paramount in its authority over every Individual c'tizen of the Nation; and entitled to the good faith of Staie obligation under the Constitution and the Lawa." " That ho State, or combination of States, of the Federal Union can absolve herself from her duty to her co-States under the Constitution, exoept by the issue of a Revolutionary appeal to the God or Nations on tbe merits of her cause." "That, as the hasty and precipitate course of South Carolina has been, avowedly, predicated upon tbe Intention to make tbe ruin or the Confederacy remediless, rather thau to redress her wrongs in tbe Union; and is imminently calculated to involve all the siaveboldtng States in the desolating wofi of a civil war, without tbe exercise of tbetr discretion as to the inodeand measure of meeting tbe exigency; therefore we deDrecate her conduct, as 111 advised, unjust, and disreapectful to her sister States of the South," Thia notable meeting broke up with three cbeers for Jackson, three for Maj. Anderson, three for General Scott, and nine for the Union'" Verily, Senator James M Maaon, who la one of the moat rampant dlaunioniata per se in the Senate of the United State*, is not " a prophet in hia own country."

As matters now stand !n Charleston, though the General Government hss not fired a single gun in defense cf its authority and property, two months of "secession" have absolutely and entirely destroyed the whole butinets of that lately flourish log city, put the whole State under martial law, and subjected the lives and fortunes of all of every position in society to a reign of terror unequaled In the history of the civilized world. Derhans. ' ? W - J since the original French revolution. It being clear tbat such results there must speedily disgust the people of the South everywhere with "peaceful and constitutional secession," South Carolina thus promptly conies forward to ask the (jovern! incut to accommodate her with the deaired change in the phaze of the affair' That she will be accommodated, is hardly among things possible. 3 How Thsy Raisk th?

He assured them hat Texas knew what was for her interest, and she would take care of her own institutions. Texas had suffered from abolitionism, and th^rewasbut one alternative to preserve the Union, and that was for the North to make prompt concessions to the South. Mr. Stanton replied, that the republican party bad no idea of abolishing slavery It was a local Institution, and not national; and here the differ* ence of opinion had arisen. The South claimed as a constitutional right the privilege of taking slaves Into the free Territories of the States, and th? North claimed that slavery could only be established by a special law. Mr. Rust said the propositions of Mr. Critt#n> den had not been recompiended by the Committee of Thirty-three, and that the committee, on a direct vote, bad repudiated what purports to be a report.

What this quiet may portend it is impossible to foretell. It may offer the opportunity for reflection, reconsideration, and reconciliation, or only prove delusive by giving way to fiercer outbreaks and more decisive results. All we can say is that It exists, and a quiet unlooked for and unaccounted for exista. In the meantime the South Carolina amM*saitor or commissioner Is at Washington,and the aec-et of bis instructions Is so well kepi luac uoiiiing but the most unsubstantial rumors have currency. It Is said that South Carolina demands the unconditional surrender of Fort Sumtrr, but as she has made that demand before It seems Improbable that her Commissioner* have no other errand.

Senator Rust's previous letters prepared him somewhat for this action, which Is her* at trlbuted to the Pacific Railroad bill mv before Congress. the road aa proposed passing through Arkanaaa. It la the opinion, however, of well informed Southern gentlemen, that Arfcanaaa cannot posatbly atand against the overwhelming aereaaion sentiment prevailing in Mlaalsaippi and Loniaiaaa. Lettera from the Interior of Loniaiana, received here by planters, state that alavea are daiiv growing more diaobedient, and puniahroent (a daily inflicted m caaea where the laah haa not before been uaed for montba A case la mentioned where a lady deserted her plantation, leaving it In charge of negroea, and fled to New Orleana.

Mr. Lamar baa telegraphed to JtflVraon Dav'a that, although they carried the secession ordinance in Miaalaalppi, It waa with great diflculty, ana mat mrre-wai a powerrui party oppose 10 them; that the first faux pat made would place them in a minority. The Senate today allowed the Pacific Railroad bill to overalaugb Mr. Crittenden*a resolution. There la an evident deair* on the part of the republicans to paaa thla bill, aa well aa the bill admitting Kanaai aa a State, before taking any action on any of the propositions for compromise and conciliation.

Curtln was Inaugurated Governor of Pennsylvania on Tuesday at Harrlsbure. In bla address be pledge* hlmaelf to atand between the Conatitation and all encroachments instigated by hatred, ambition, fanaticism, or folly. He aaya the election of the President has he?n made a pretext for disturbing the peace of the country by wresting from the Federal Government the powers which tbe people conferred on It when the Constitution waa adopted. There haa been nothing in the life or acta of Mr. Lincoln to warrant the excitement Blinded in their judgment, a p*rt of the people are now precipitating themselves into a revolution. He saya that if Pennsylvania has any laws infringing on the right of any State that contravene any Federal law. or obstruct their execution, thfV OHL/ht tn hp Ppnnavlv^nli Kta nevt r faltered In the recognition of all the duties imposed .by the national compact, and will, by every act consistent with devotion to the lntereata of her people, promote fraternity and peace between the states. When trade was prostrate and Industry paralysed by adverse legislation by the General Government, Pennsylvania waited patiently. No voice spoke disloyalty or treason, and na arm was raised to strike at the sacred fabric of the Union. It will be our duty to unite with the people of the loyal just and honorable measure* for conciliation If they are just and moderate the danger may be averted. Oars Is a National Government, having all the attributes of sovereignty Among these is the right of self-preservatlon. No State, or combination of States, can cvcue uur aiMoire iDtaiKirn irom uw oongation? of the Union. Pennsylvania will never acquiesce in such a conspiracy, nor aaaeat to doctrines involving the destruction of the Government. If it Is to exist it must have power adequate to the enforcement of the supreme law In every State It is the first duty of the Federal Government to stay the progress of anarchy, enforce the laws, and Pennsylvania will give its united, honest, and faithful support The people mean to preserve the Union at every hatard. ICT" Gov Yates, of Illinois, in bis Inaugural address, avows the doctrine of the "lrrer?r???ihl? conflict" between freedom and slavery, but insists that it doe* not necessarily disturb the relations of the State* He denies the right of secession He declares that no seceding Stale shall embarrass or interrupt the free navigation of the Mississippi; recommends the militia to be put in readiness to protect the State or respond to mv call of the federal executive for the suppression of rebellion or enforcement of the laws How Georgia was Cakkiid for Sbcessio*.? It seems that on the day of election in Georgia despatches were circulated through the State as AI AL-A - " nung iwi ?ue umiea states troops were bombarding Charleston. The Augusta Constitutiona list says" We ire clearly of the opinion that Georgia bas been carried for secession by the grossest frauds, in the way of tbese sensation dispatches, that were ever practiced on a confiding people; aud we embrace tbe present moment to warn them not to be deceived during tne session of tbe Convention by similar tricks Address to the Catholics or Sr. Lona.? Archbishop Kenrlck, of St. Louis, has Issued a brief address to the Roman Catholics of that city, exhorting (hem in the present disturbed state of the public miud to avoid all occasions of public excitement, to obey the laws, to respect the rights of all citixens, and to keep away, as much as possible, from all assemblages wherethe indiscretion of a word, or the impetuosity of a momentary passion, might endanger public tranquility.
