RATIONAL POLITICS IN TOE SOUTH. .< Sectional mr a VaKm Pwtjr-nit ChtricMon lUrcwry Dtiionutu 1 ttte Know KotHti>x? rt? Oiimm litite George U?. [Viwia the Cbarleeten Mercury ] TBI UNION OP THJt SOCrB. VJe bold it to be impossible tor any national par ty lo protect tbe Soutn. Tain fact has been grow lag m re palpable at each successive crisis in tie war open slavery. In 1835, when tbe war broke *ai, the conservative men at tbe North, in a body, aaiied against abolition. T My saw that it touch*l ?fc? vitai and most sensitive chord in tbe South, and believing that there *u a spirit among her poople wbieb would not tolerate each insolent interference, iae? trembled lest it would prove latal to the Dawn. Dm?6i to tbe Union, from anti slavery aggression n tee one band, and die resistance of the South on the other lormed the key mre of their arguments ?nd aopeals. Atherton,of New Hampshire, m?oe it tbe thfine of hie speeches ?nd the point of his tannins resolutions on tbe subject of slavery peti tteni i. bilaa Wright, tie giant loafer of New Yorb , artcred it again and a* am in tones of prouhetio warning. And Daniel Webster, with hi* band upon ?he .(institution, and in eloquent tributes of patriot ic Wive, declared that anti-slavery, it unchecked, would destroy the Union. But the South took f -om tbe mouths of the con servative men of the North this potent argument, when, by hai roomiest on. abe taught them that she might be iiosu'.ted and trampled una with impunity. Tbe memorable lesson then taught has never been erguten. it disheartened and destroyed the friends ?i ate South at tbe North, aud aided new vigor and )ntio>ence ? her enemies. Wnat hat been the c >t sequencs? In each buccbssivs struggle from that 4ay io this? in '46. apon tbe Wiimot proviso; in '50, ?pen Per exclusion from California, and Utah and Mew Me juoo- -b^r friends at the North h?ve quailed ?efore abo-ition, fallen in spirit and numbers, until now, m me prospect ol aggression fiercer than ever eefore, sbe finds nereelf without any support a', tbe North, wr.h her tat hope- tbe democratic party? prostrate beneatn fanaticism. Such are the biaer and mortifying trnits of that miserable policy wcich ailed ?? peace, pea ?*," woen the wat.ii srord of toe Gcutb sb jiiid Lave b<?en. disuaion or our rights. The> North rices not believe in Sontaern reswunoe. II remembers her past fond and angry threat*, all tiding id word i ?nd nothing more. It seea that while it ip rapid] j sd'anring in po?er, the Sooth is fallirg behind, and its srroean e follows tbe change. But, mrre ;tian a ), it calculates upon tbe Magic of ?ffic^aaiid honors? toe spoils of President!*' ele; iwnfa ? to buy up Slattern politicians and c*lm aid aiieai the bouth. Tne game has succeeded so offon reform, why fbQuld it fail now? Tons tne l'ear of Southern stiirit ana of Snntbem strength no loage' disturbs or cne fcs the designs ot f-uiaMci?m, and parties can no longer be rallied at the North wit i tbe view of propitiating tne flouth, lest her resistance should atfctroy tbe Union. Ru" J there oouid arise in tbe North a party so held a* to peril its own strength at boms by pledges t* l*ift Souvh, it is absolutely 'ertain 'bat it sriil v.o iaietbtm. They wilt be made wichmt fifth, and tic ia ted without compunction. Our experience on tbat point is amu.e. On toe tariff? a me ware which had its opponents in boto soctlons of tne Unicn? the democratic broke its faith a?aui and again. At each national convention it renewed He pledges to the policy of free trade, yet they Maud unredeemed to this day. And tbe very las; move made upon tbe subject, Secretary Ontario's project, was a palpable descent irom the modifl a tioa ol '46. What hope, then, of Northern faich ?pin a qnesthn far more intense an i controlling, wnkb has banded the whole North together? the qnemion of slavery? Fanatic en has fixed tbe sump of death np*n any parry or man at tne North that dares oe trne to the Sontb. It points to the ignominious fate of the democratic and whig parties as a warning, which none :an disregard and 11 'e. It brings all to the altar, and makej th ;m s vaar the ?ath of eternal hatred to fie Sau*b. No p'edges, then fore, of regard to her institutions can be kept by Northern narties. Nor can the South derive safety from national paioes, for anotner reason. Tbe North ia tbe aggressor-- tie South the aggressed. fhe crusade upcQ her baa been steadily a?sumlng a type more ud more uncompromising. The only terms upon which a party can be organized in, that the Sjath should acquiesce in being wronged and degraded. Ifce North will not yield, and the South mutt, else organization can be eft'^.ed. Time wa* when compromises were possible. Bit can there bs any ob the Kan su issue ? Must she not bs eittur ad mitted or fx Ju led as a slave State ? What ea thly chance does any pir'y at tie Norih sUal wi\zi goes for her admiseion on that ground ? Arid bow can the S.uth affiliate with, or find sifety in, any party which deserts her on this qtjestioa ? N j ! ft m written in the bitter experiences of the put, that tbo North teels neither reaped nor fear of tbe Booth? that tbe plsdges of national parties are obeats and mockeries, and that th;re can bs neither safety nor honor in them for the South.

Ice alternative of tae delegates is tlaiu; it is Law or Fillmore: and tbeir decision w<ll be watched with eagerness oy tbe while tu'.i m. It is n' deniable that Mr Fillmore Is a very s'/oag man in Louisiana. especially with t.he adhe.-enfs of the Aiuerkun order, and hie partisans are b >ta numerous aid intlumtid.

Botwemustnat !ors;et, at the same ticvo. thr.t outside t.ais au'i a few o tier 6ta,r#s, Mr. Fiilmo-e has no real strength, aad tha'. bis pro?pect< were openly ridiculed at the Pailidel pbiu Convention. He is too thnrougly ooua'A'.ited to the oil wbig pa ty, with all its oeculiar formu la", principles, ideas, and machinery, to hi accept ble to the new, autochtonal o.-ga?ti7.at.ioi which BPiunir up with such unparalleled rapidity, and con trived meanwhile to s-tike its roots so deep. He may rest under the shadow of the old trbig viae ana fin trees, but there is no pU e for him ia toe datknefs ot' the gieat American baujan waich spreads so umbtageously, far and wide. It is unnecessary to detail the ssriea of ascidents or <n*.vltabte comblnatlonB.if y >u will, which brought Mr. L&w before the people, in tbe character of an aspirant for the nigbest office of the United States. Great movements often spriGg from small bsgin nirga, and scarcely six mouths have elapsed since tbe first mention wss made of his name in connec tion with any political station, and yet it is a tiwer ot strength to-day. The centre wbich stnr, forth ita motieat radii trom New Orleans, has now a cir cumference wbich embraces tbe strongest and most intelligent States, and its sweeps bacome wider and wl(?er every month, every week, every day. It was objected at first that Mr. Law wai not a regular politician, and bad never s?rved an sporen ticeship to statesmanship. He had cot apent veirs in the study of locil or national politics, and w.u rarely or never iu the Tanks of any party exesot cn elect) on day. But the answer of his frlenls con tenced that this fa^t went to establish his fitness as tbe representative of the new party, which roae fro a the ruins of the old organizations, and waich neither sought nor solicited tbe countenance of tbeir leaders, but waa sought by them. He is aa oiigiral man, they said, and therefore bsst suite! to represent an original idea. Besides, he is entirely national, as Am%ri22.n as the Alleghinies or toe Hudson, and endowed with the robust com mon sense and indomitable will wai :h are regarded as the foremost characteristics ot the Am9rican patty. So his advoctfea reasoned, and so bis cmse pro grepsed. The Know Nothing portion of the Penn sylvania legislature aocapted aim as a candidate - New Jeiaey followed suit? the flag of the G apesbot was run up to the p?ak by the national section of the paity , and the Commodore was fairly afl oat. Since tt>en the qualifications of Mr. L?w have been freely c in vasted? bis antecedents ex iminsd ? his availability discussed, and the result wis tut his popularity with the Philadelphia Convention w.?s notoriously greater than that ot any other candid ate, and the North ana Booth combined in t ieir estimate of his chances. It a nomination (or the Presidency bad been toroed upnntbat body by in judicious zeal, there is no l inger a shadow of doubt but that the Commodore of the (? rape snot, wnose name ia connected with our greatest national en terprises, and is as familiar ia California as on the new Harlem Bridge at New York, would have teen the unanimous choice of the delegates. And now that the matter haa beacon a g'ave reality, we beg leave to inggeat to the An eru-ai Oooadl of Louisiana a few aubat viUat reasons for the preference of Ueorge L>w over SiilUrd Fillmore as their Htandard bsarer in the next cam-paiga. It is lor the delegates to decide whether the** raisons are found or not. They are briefly as follows:? 1st. The or ginality of the American parly is its chiel characteristic. It acknowledge; allegiance to none of the old org-vnlzatiDns. I w leader* are new men; its litual is even move novel? its objects a -e prcul .tr U) itaeif. It must therefore eelect a ne*r map f ft it,? Presidency, or ahow itself in a grossly i?c nfisic^t light? a man woo has never bsen om mined to the practical working of the aic enc par ties, but is still gifted with great experience and 1a tn.tive pjiiticai talent. Thm ne'?isity obviously fxcitidcs Miilard Filimore, and i'< gives ths nomtna tier; to (ijotge Lam. 2d. The nominee of the party should not ba a lawyer or professional office seeker, for tne adoption of ?uch a msn would belie tne originality of tie party and reduca it to the old vul *&r level. As AmiricAtiisai drew lti best supj> >rt from th i msr cuiitLs clatHi'H pt the oonimun'ty, a person in inti mate oom'iiumon with tjose cusses and b.vongiag tot'ntm himself, shonld b? selected as i'-s represen tative. Tbls is a principle wuicn involve* tbj sue cess or failure of the party. Those wao cuinot appreciate it are behind the times, an* this prtaol pic, 8gaio, gives the nominat: >tj to tieorge L??, wbile it .rievocably rules oat M.llaru Pill more. 3d. The fortunate candi laveihoald be as welcome to tee nsople at large as to the commercial cl tMi ? a self made man woo alone could appropriately repn wnt the patty which e<s*ys to consolidate the nationality of the American race; and h?ra sgisn ? Jcorge l.aw appears as the man of tne c rim, for tie is quite as poou ar with the working classes as with the moneyed men of the United States. Persians no other individml of tho present day eo cloady unites the respect of opposite and apparently aat% gonistlc sections ot society, a id no stronger claim than ibis could bo urged in bis favor b tfore the Louisiana State Convention. 4th. He p.isMsses a truly American mlad? bold, speculative, and at the same tim s conservative. It would be impossible (or him to be a common-place President. He would do something, or die; but in the fiercest whirl and inspiration of his energy, he woj.d adnerc strictly to the constitution rtf the country to which he has always luen a dev >t d subjact. The laws would be safe in his band*. foe flsg of the nation wonld be respected, and he would require no " special agents" and Irresponsible de tectives to vindicate his foreign or domestic policy. 5. He is a non sectarian, and wonld never degrade himself by joining in rt liglous squabbles. He is not a bluetligbtTpreacher or a Crom wellian saint, but an American gentleman , of liberal feelings and eni trged views. Sncb are the grounds on which we venture to suggest that (ieorge Law should be prefored to Millard Fillmore in the Americas Conn Ml of Louisi ana. We bave ontlined them hastily, bat candid v, and send them forth for what tbey are worth. We trust we will not be accused of any undue Interfsr "oi e, inasmuch as our real object is to see both par. ties the democratic and American? putting in no mination their best men, so that l&.r>*> may )>?> a gal lant camjia'gn, and not a mere caucus- a struggle to ? all fortn the intelligence and enthusiasm of the people, and not a miserable game of pushpin, intel ligible enly to tbe few who happen to be initiate I in its recieti.

Beside politics tbe principal topic of conversa tion during tbe past fortnight has bean tbe coir firmation ol' the claim koown a<t the Bolton ft Bir rm claim, to lands adjoining the city of Sao Fran cisco. Tbe opinion and decree of confirmation in ihis claim were given on tbe 5th ins!., tbe former bring given by Commissioner Fardwell, and con curred in by Commissioner Thompson. The initla ?ory proceedinas in tbis case were commenced be fore the Land Commission in March last, aad siooe ifcat time no stone has been left uuturned, no means tat could be applied neglected, by parties who were interested to defeat the claim and prevent its confirmation. A most voluminous maw of testi mony has been taken, and a large amount of legs] ore expended in the endeavor, but all to no pur poee. As the contii m it ion of tbis claim is a matter wf.ish wi.l materially affec , in all time to come, the best interests of 8a u Francisco- giving confidence, as ir. must, to f crsons desiring to come here and settle, that there are such things as valid land titles here? a short history of tbe claim, end description ct tLe property confirmed, may not ba uninterest ing to those, in all portions of tie world, whose eyes are now turned upon California as a future residence, or a field for speculation. tbe lands embraced witiln the grant wb'sh has just been confirmed to its present holders are those wtich formerly belonged to tbe mission of Dolores, tbe church establishment of w&ich is located about thiee miles ecnth ot the oentre oi rur city. All this mission proi>erty, which at onetime, in toe early history ot California, embiaced nearly all tbe laad lying wi'Lin the territory, and which belonged to Uie cbureb, was ecculari/.fd by an sc'. of the Mexican Congrees, and thereby maie government pioperty, and rendered subject to the tame corUu ^:nm? and liabilities an otner government lauds. On the 10th of January, A.
