The Inttlttgene*r, In replying to Southern correspondenta, relative to the President elect, apeak* of Mr. Lincoln's past political course as eminentlr conservative, and quotes from Senator Benjamin's speech, of tbe 23d of last May, to show the confidence reposed in him by the South, when a representative in Congress. The Constitution contends that the rejection of the Crittenden amendment* to the Constitution by the united Republican vote in the Senate establishes the folly of expecting even the most moderate recognition of Southern claim*. The Rtpubliean says: " We have ha^l quite enough of a sort of Unionism at the South, which is nothing but contingent disunion," and.that ' the question is not who is for the Union, if they can have it remodeled to suit them: but who is for the Union as It la under tlie old Conatitution of 1787 ?" It laya the reaponaibllltyat the door of the border States, and urgea them to arreat the progreas of diauniou and treaaon The viacinia Movbmkst?Wm hmak, what ov tbi Night??Virginia is promptly Inaugurating the movement which, it is no longer to be doubted, bids fair to bring tbe troublea of the times to a Deaceftil and haoDV termination, feith. out the destruction of the Union. It ia the plan . of inducing both the aeceding States and the General Gorernment to abstain from hostilities until the border slavehol<)ing States can demand In a fraternal spirit of all the authorities of all the rest of the States that they will, in a national convention, consider the existing condition of the i nioii, ana remeay iae evm, uy me aaopuon 01 the Crittendea propositions or whatever else that may prove satisfactory to those who simply seek to secure for all time to come within the Union, the institution of southern slavery against unconstitutional encroachments on the part of the Gen eral Government. ? The news from the ?outh received within the last week, proves? 1st That South Carolina Is already heartily sick and tired of the position In which she stands, . oil tw.* *1 1 a _ .# n . j . i. i?? iiui idc popular vovc ui ucorgia ana Alabama la largely against following South Carolina's example; 3d. That Arkansas refuses to hold a Convention even, antil after tbe 4th of March ; 4th. Tnat Tennessee has determined to refer whatever her Convention may do to the people, which cannot be done before tbe 4th of March ; 5th That North Caroltni is by no means likely to set precipitately in tbe matter, and that her authorities, repudiating Mr. W. S Ashe's acts of i?bellion, have offered to restore to the United State* the forte h? caused to be seized ; 6th. That Virginia has accorded to her people tbe right to sit in judgment upon whatever her Convention may do, and is also engaged in urging a plan nnder which the whole trouble may easily be accommodated without the destruction of tbe Union; ?th. That Maryland continues firmly to scout the intrigues of the disunionists ptr i? to Involve her in the disunion movement; 8th. That Missouri has decided that whatever her Convention may do, shall also be duly submitted for popular ratification or rejection. In proving these now so very important facts, the news in question proves unmistakably that the consumption of the scheme of the conspirators to drag the whols South out of the Union before the 4th of March is, already, a dead failure; and?Mt a wholesome reaction has certainly set in In all quarters of the South, that, beyond question. di?al pates the probability of the destruction of the Union, and promises a speedy settlement of the troubles by action of all the States in National Convention, represented nor by their Congressmen, principally solicitous each of strengthening his hold on poaitlon In public life, bat by citizens Without embarassing records aa public men, who see before them their chance to come into public life only through earnest exertions to repair the miachief which Congresahaa for twenty-live years past been gradually heaping upon the head of an abuaed country. Hats I Not Pboihocncbd It ? Thebefobe, It It So'?Nothing could be wore ridiculous than the pretention! with which the New York Tr-ibun* iHumn to pronounce the views of the President elect to be diametrically opposite to the poaitlona aaaumed by that functionary^ premier in his recent tenatorial apeech. It ia well known that in the composition of the Cabinet, Mr. Lincoln unceremonioualy rejected every man urged upon him tuspected of sympathy with the ideas and narncsea of th? Tnk??? i? conaecton with the slavery question; selecting u the bead of his administration and hit chief adviaer the very man, of all others, against whom the New York Tribun* entertain* the bitterest conceivable hostility. We need hardly remind the public that Mr. Seward'a *psech has b?en received by the whole Republican party press, except the New York 7Vi6m?, as the authorised exposition of the President elect's position with reference to the troubles of the tlaaas, If but because he (Mr. 9.) Is to be the chief of the new government. The fact that the Tribune undertakes to poohv ? * - " poon senator seward'a authority to apeak in Lincoln^ behalf and Taunt lta own, nnder nil tbe circomatancea of tbe eaae, la aim ply proof positive that despairing of otherwiae Influencing tbe Incoming admintitration to make common cauae with tbe abolition lata, it la bent on trying the experiment of bollying It to that end. n v.... . iiariiBivK ?i u? uDnuncemtni a rew (day i since that the Congressional representation f Alabama was about to withdraw from Washington, which determination, by-ttae-by, Is understood to have been reconsidered for the time being, (as the north Alabama delegate* In their Convention refuse point blank to sign the sects, ion ordl nance, and thus, so far, block the wheels ef d union fir *?,) caused a multitude of regrets to be expressed her* at the prospect of losing Senator Fltxpatrlck from the councils of the nation. We question whether any other public man has mors earnestly and sincerely condemned the rouses of those who seek to destroy the Union for the sake of Its destruction, than Senator P. ?- f~. v.. Li ? a -* .ur ruimcauy i man or good sense and enlarged patriotism, never having done a foolish or regrftable thing In the discharge of his public duties through the long series of years he has been in the Senate of the United States We wish he could at once repair to Alabama for the time being, where his Influence in behalf of moderation, popular rights,and sound patriotism would be worth more than can be expressed, to the cause of the eventual security of the rights of the South without the total destruction of the - - Rmanuoja Dieeainge and beneflts which tb* people of Alabama, In common with all the rmt of the clttxeos of tb# United States, enjoy by and through the Union. UZ^Snow fell on Monday night to the depth of Is inches in Western Alabama and Eastern Ml* umppt " Tbb Niwi'iio* Alabama, that the delegate* from the northern portion cf the State refuse to sign the ordinance of secession passed by the Convention, unless that be amended so as to make it Inoperative until after the 4th of March next, was doi unexpected in us. in view 01 me iaci iosi very large public meeting held in Huntsvllle, the third largest city or town in the State, recently resolved that the people of North Alabama will take up arint against the disunion movement,unless the ordinance (of secession) be submitted to popular acceptance or rejection. The position of North Alabama is Immensely strengthened by the fact that an analysis of the vote of the whole State in electing delegates to the Convention, shows that the disuntonists ptr it, though able to control the Convention, were really In a minority fit mnr? than t*?n thmiftar.ri vntM: th? rnnnllec voting with tbrm living few white# and iT.any blacka (population), while those voting against them have comparatively many whites and few blacka. It Is hardly to be doubted that North Alabama will have her way In thla matter, insomuch that It Is no longer to b? doubted that a large majority of the population of the State is aevlnst immediate accession t and that havinir her way In it, ahe must necessarily d< f-at the scheme arranged by the disunion secret managing committee here, to bold a Provisional Congress of seceding State*, at Montgomery, Ala., early next month, declare Robe.-tM.

We learn by the?last steamer that the old King of Prussia, Frederick W illlara 1V , Is dead, after n protracted illness resulting in temporary insanity. He ascended the throne about 15 years ago, and on the '23d of October, 1830, he gave up the management of his personal affiirs to his brother.

Gkxkkal Scott's View?.?The Intelligencer of thla morning publishes the views of Gen. 9eott upon secession,written October 29,1^60. In which the position Is assumed that the right of secession mav be conceded. In order to save time; but It should be Instantly balanced Dy the correlative right on the part of the Federal Government to reestablish, by force If necessary. Its former continuity of territorv. If the i'nlnn w>? nnr? KrAk.n there would be no hope of reuniting the fragments, except by the sword, and it would then be better to suffer these fragments to form themselves Into a new Confederacy. General Scott expresses his political sentiments as sympathizing with the Bell and Kverett ticket, but he does not apprehend any unconstitutional violence or breach of law from the Administration of Mr. Lincoln. He advised the prompt garrisoning of all souioern ioris, ana Mrs: w ltd tbe army faithful to Its allegiance and the navy?probably equally so. and with a Federal Executive, for tbe next twelve month*, of firmness and moderation, wblch tbe country has a right to expect?moderation being an element of power not lea* than firmnest?there la good reason to hope that tbe danger of secession may be made to pasa away without one conflict of armi, one execution, or one arreat for treason " In relation to the lines of demarcation that would be established between the new Union, in case of dissolution, he could not accurately apeak, but many of them might be approximately drawn In advance as follows : i. The Potomac river and the Chesapeake bay to the Atlantic 2. From Maryland, aloni; the rrpit ?f ih? Allpohanv ( rwrha r*m tK? ui v ? a \ , vr r~ K.UC iuu^I range of mountain*, to some point in the coast of Florida. 3. The line say from the head of the Potomac to the west or northwest, which it will be moat difficult to settle. 4. The crest of the Rocky Mountains. Of the Federal property In the South he said From a knowledge of our southern population It Is my solemn conviction that there is some danger of an early act of raahneaa preliminary to secession, !> : the seizure nf some or all of the following posts Forta Jackson and St. Phllln. in the Mississippi. below New Orleans, both without garrisons; Fort Morgan, below Mobile, without a garrison; Forts Pickens and iMcRee, Pensacola harbor, with an insufficient garrison for one; Fort Pulaski, below Savannah, without a garrison; Forts Moultrie and Sumter, Charleston harbor, the former with an insufficient garrison, and the latter without any; and Fort Monroe, Hampton roads, without a sufficient garrison In my oplulon all these works should be 1 mined! ately so ga'risoned a* to make any attempt to take anyone of them, by surprise or coup Jt main, ridiculous. These s-ntiments expressed before tbe Presidential election and before secession was looked upon as at all probable, are particularly interesting at tbe present crisis, ana give to the country an Idea of General Scott's sentiments upon this important subject. irr A statement in the New Vork Evening Post, of Sergeaat George McFadden,wbo was employed under Major Anderson, both at Fort Moultrie and at Fort Sumter, gives rather a different version of the state of affairs in Major Anderson's garrison to that generally received He says that Fort Moultrie was in a much better condition for Att... a.._ ? -- .u?u > ? > juiuKi, iiiii nearly an me guns were mounted, and the men Id good condition. The appartns for mounting guns was left at Fort Moultrie Fort Sumter Is cold, and unfinished,' and some nine or ten of the guns were imperfectly mounted. The guns of the fort cannot be depressed sufficiently to defend the fort, as they are mounted for long-range shot, and any object within a inile and a half of the fort could not be harmed. He also states that Major Anderson Is very short of provisions, having only fifty barrels of flour and one or two casks of other provisions They have no fuel, and are comnellMl *?.?? whatever can be (pared from the fort He say* that with 100 determined men he could take possession of the fort in half an hour, at the position of the gun* will not admit of their bavins any effect upon a company within one mile. Major Anderson never asked the workmen to stay with him; but, on the contrary, was anxious to get rid of so many extra mouths to feed. Nobth Cakolina Cosvxktiqn ?At the determined demand of the Hon Bedford Brown, a conservative member of the NotIi Carolina Legislature. the Committee on ?( to whom wu e utrusted tbe consideration of a proposition tor tbe calling of a State Convention, agreed to lnsrrt in tbe bill reported for tbat purpose a provsion that tbe action of the Convention ball be submitted to a vote ft the people for tbelr ratification or rejection.

Balsam or Wild Cherky ?In our columns this week appears an advertisement of Wlstar's Balsum of Wlid Cherry. If It renlly be a superior article, and there Is much reason to think so, the prejudice In many cases just against Patent Medicines should not effect it; ant', the proprietors of the medicine brine before the public good evidence of its beneficial effect, from some of our most respectable snd reliable citizens, who have Ions need the article Jno Wells Simpson, Esq . of this village, to whom references was allowea to be mtdf in th# tfl0-?~? ?- ?. . v. w? ?uc oaiHU, II the requrat of tbe proprietors, antborttee a* to say that he bu used the Balsam In bis family for tbe last ten years, and has found it, from his expertence, to be very valuable remedy for coughs and coids.

In the opposition to this institution the republican party bad grown into power, and had succeeded in obtaining possession of the Government. Their principles were in direct hostility to the interests of the South: secession was but Its logical result; and he, for one, approved of secession under existing circumstances. He denied the right of the Government to coerce a seceding State, and said that the South ?? termined to have equality In the Union, or-lnde pendence out of It. Mr. Sicklea denied tbe right of secession, approved the course of Mai. Anderson, and said that while It would be difficult to get a regiment to march from New Y?rk into a seceding State for the purpose of coercion, they were all ready to defend the national flag, no matter where it was hoisted; and If a Southern Confederacy was formed, it was tbe duty of the North to extend over it a territorial control.

The proceeding! of tbe Convention were harmonious. Tbe resolutions were adopted by an almost unanimous vote, declaring that it is the prompting of patriotism and dictate of wisdom to mace an earnest effort to save the Union by conciliation and concession. Therefore, we are willing to accept tbe amendments to the Constitution proposed in the United States Senate by Senator Douglas sad Senator Crittenden and the Border States' propositions, or any other whereby harmony may be restored between the people of the different wtiAi,. u> the country. We deny the Constitutional right of any State to secede from the Union, and we are equally opposed to nullification at the North and secession at the !*outh as violations of the Constitution. Th*t in tbe opinion of this Convention, the employment of a military force by the Federal Government to coerce Into submission the seceding States, will inevitably plunge the country In a civil war. and entirely extinguish all hope for a settlement of the fearful Issues now pending before the country. Therefore, we earnestly entreat tbe Federal Government and the seceding States to withhold the arm of military power, and on no pretext whatever tilhrlnw IK- - 1 ..v navivu w me uurrurs oi & civil war, until the people can tak* tucb action as the trouble! demand.

On the other hand, the oonfi'lenoe of the puhho ia eo much abueed by a e1a*e of self educated and self-extoling practitioner*, who pretend to have discovered infallible ipeans to prevent diseases suoh an we have described. lh*.t mnamer&hl* dilRna lita ?r round the iubjrct. Speoifion for a'l the Ilia of life are discovered daily and hourly, especially in the department to which I hare d*roted my time and attention. Plasters, lotions, fto, Ac., are brought before the astonished world as possessing powers inifcllibi*. According to their own assertions they hare nsver been known to fail; and what ohanoe nas he who has deroted his whole life to inquiry, bit to honAfltlv nnnfuil that th* H?viitinna at ra?nr? inrnua hit expectation*; that Her waya are often inaorntable, and all that he can do ia to atndy, to learn, and to try to cnre, without profeaaing that every malady ia anbject to hia superior akiil. Moat urgently do I recommend tboae who are af fiieted with Coma, however harmleaa they mar appear, however easily renoved, never to have re conrae to the knife. The moat appalling apaama< convulsions terrible to behold, and lock jaw, have attended on t*e wounding a branch of a nerve by a oo.nmon p?n knife, aaalao hemorrhage, aoaroel? to be arrested. I am not fond of giviag cases, for I am ?orry to find that erery empiri" who praotica* any branch of the medical profession, fancies that the true avenue to employment ia to rarrate extra ordinary ease*, whether true or not, because he fanoiee that people will see something in what they read which may remind them of their own (offering. I would refer to vast nnmbera of example*, which I have encountered in this oity, if I thought it neoeuary to mention it. I strenuoualv recommend thoae who anftor from Corna, nerer to have *eoouree to the knif", to the razor, or even to the aoiaeora. bat to plaeethemael vee, te toon aa posaible, under the manacement of tome one who hu lone b?en akiliod in their ear*. SufTerera from Coma will ind temporary rati*/ from plunging the foot in a hot pednlarism, jourincc in. from time to time, hot wat?r. The dieraaed part ahonid be aaaiduoutly rubbad with a dry, rough towel. In the greater nrmber of inatanoee thia prooeaa will be followed by the looaenmg of *1 11 1? ? * ins ob iuu> ui?t?ooe; uiws wilt M neitner psln nor uneaainesa left, although the oorn will remain, till relief ia obtained, without the danger whioh outtiag may produce. It ia impossible to be son pletely rid of a Corn, unless extirpated by a akitfful aod experienced operator. If I spp'ar somewhat tedious in this matter, {if I hare been guilty of repetitiona. 1 truat that 1 may be exeuaed for an earnestness and an anxiety on a aabject whioh 1 conceive of more importance, almost, than any rutea I oovld lay down. It is a maxim I would have a atartliog taught to repeat?it ta a aentenoe which ahcu'd be repeated in the ear of every a u tier er from oorne-itu a Toioe which ahoald beeohotd baok on every eooaeion ?
