The bU*U*jfrnttr says the doctrine of an " lrrepreaalble eonilct" bftwrw the two social systems of tbe North and of the South, sfter having been cit?d for a tine aa one of tbe mod signal evidence* of " northern fanaticism," baa now come to be a mo<t accept rd criterion of ' loyalty to tbe South and tta institutions;" but that very many among even tbe aeceaatonlats of tbe border alaveholding States are too unequivocally pledged in opposition to this doct.lne to offer any very flattering prospect of unity in tbe maintenance of such proposition as a thesis of southern political science. The vents Its spleen upon General Scott In the usual style. The Republican, 1b reply to the Baltimore Sir*'* article relative to this city becoming the capital of a southern confederacy, says if there Is any one thing which tbe free States have mtd? perfectly n _ < 9 RA 1 ? 1L -1_ J I >1 A ? 1 J AVI ? it ia lurir uricrnuaiuon to uuiu mis capital against all comsra. They will bold It at all costa of men and money, and not only tbia city itself, bat the approaches to It, and everything esaen'.lal to the perfect security of lta occupation. " Rbcokstbvctiox."?The revolutionary authorities of South Carolina deserve thanks for the promptness with which, on the appearance of Judge Robinson, the Virginia Commissioner to their "Republic," they flatly notified her (Virginia) that the "reconatructlon'' pies Is simply a miserable dodge with which her dlsunionlsts would cheat her people icto the abandonment of the Union. They* notify Virginia formally that Pouth Carolina does not entertain the least idea of ever again entering tbe Union, under any cir cumstances whatever. Or, rather, that those who at prewnt compos? her government, entertain do auch Idea. Their manifesto upon the subject a a fortunate one, because it completely explodes the only plea on which diaunlon is dared to be urged upon tbe great mass of the people of Virginia?aa tbe surest means of restoring the seceded States to their late federal relations We have for some time past known well that It is not tbe purpose of a aingle disunion leader In either of the seceding States except Jefferson Davis, to permit the (ao called) reconatructlon of the Union, it matters not what guarantees the North may proffer, if tbey can prevent it; and we also know well that If the border slavebolding States follow the example of South Carolina tbey will -j? a * - . -v b.iu|/if pisciu^ tuciiiKivra unaer toe absolute control of the disunion p*r ft leaders, from which they cannot escape so long as the latter bold thsir present pc wet in the extreme Sooth And that thus, instead of being themselves powers to strengthen the cause of reconstruction, they will be mere Instruments to prevent It In our day and generation; as the greater the influences (strength) swept Into their vortex, the longer will the affairs of the acceding States remain In the hands of their present usurping dictators. If the border slaveboldlng States decline fliu?ly to have lot or part with the seceding States, la two months after it becomes apparent to the world that the Incoming Administration la a conservative one upon the slavery question, the power of those dictators will vanish, and the people of the citrfm* 5nii?h *1? ? muicuui tucir lenifi, win very toon bold them to just responsibility. not only for the immense mischief tbey bave already worked, but for the much greater Injury to the public interest, everywhere, tbey certainly aim to work. *outb Carolina s explosion of tbe " reconstruction" plea will do more to keep tbe border slaveholding States from falling into tbe tolls of Disunion, than augbt that baa occurred since tbe 6th of N ovember last. | ' Maatlahd.?The Disunlonists, just now, arc Intensely Interested about th'.s State, and are training every ner*e and using every means at tbdi command to precipitate her into the whirlpool of secession. Assuming that the good old Commonwealth of Virginia will sever tbe tic which binds her to the Union, they argue heroically to show that Maryland, too, should be prepared to follow tbe severe example. But. * Maryland la a conservative State, aftd the aecea !on fever does not pervade ber entire body, would It not be aa well to counsel that Virginia cultivate a calmness of spirit, in order that sh< may tbe better judge of tbe important part >be li called upon to act in tbe great political drama Instead of endeavoring to inflame ber, that Mary' land may be scorched by the fire.' Maryland and Virginia should go band in bar.d now, aa In time* paat. Commissioners from these States met at Annapolis to make arrangement! regarding tbe navigation of tbe waters which divide them; but without completing thla busineaa, they, in a patriotic spirit, agreed to recommend that all the Scetes meet in convention to carry out a similar jurpose for tbe common advantage And out of thla arose tbe majestic structure of tb< Constitution and the commercial reeulatiom wtucb, while the substantial prosperity of tb< people has been advanced In a degree astonishing to tbe world, have secured to us a name wonderful in the aunals of trade, and, as a consequence, all interests have been marvelously benefitted. ** Instead of these two sisters being invoked U tear themselves away from their strong foundations, would it not be as well to encourage them to stand firm, In the right, and aa tbe center around which the other States may all again gather for the common good; not only of thirtyone millions of our own people, but for the freedom and happlnesa of the entire human race, ai effected by our republican and self-governing example? "Peace hath its victories, not 1cm renowned than war;? and in thla spirit we desire that all tbe States shall act.

Tbe President transmitted to tbe Senate with tbe message, a serletof resolution* adopted by the Legislature of Virginia, having in view the peaceful settlement of the exciting question now threatening the Union. He expressed his satisfaction st the patriotic course of Virginia. The Legislature of Virginia had appointed Ex-President Jno. Tyler commissioner to the President of ths United States, with Instructions to request of the President to abataln from all acta thst would lead to a hostile colliaion pending the proceedingscontemplated by the legislstlon of Virginia. However strong might be his desire to do so, it wss not in his power to make any arrangement with the commissioner. This power was only with Congress, snd he could only obey such lsws as they might ensct. Defence snd not aggression bad been the policy of the Administration from the beginning. He recommended to Congress that It should pass no law that might lead to a hostile collision of srms pending the action of Virginia, and expressed a belief that the Unlon of these States tvould be perpetusted on terms jnst and honorable to both sections of the country.

The Perslsns have hitherto been successful, and have rained several Important victories; but a great battle haa just been fought by the main body of ths Persian army, some 60,000 strong,and a large force of Turkomans, In which the Persians, under the Prince Hainza Mirza?the chl?*f . military officer of tbeemplre?were utterly routed, , and the greater part of tne army either killed or taken prisoners. The Shsh Is terribly exasperated by this defeat i and publicly declares that he will tear out the i bowels of Prince Hamza Mirza with his own , hands, and cause to be put to death all the soldiers ' who may have escaped alive It cannot yet be known what effect this defeat will n * " * " u?,c uuuu IUC I rrsiau rmpire, out it would not be surprising If It led to serious commotions, snd perhaps the overthrow of the present dvnasty.
