' -■ i ■ i - - I • Bcsiarks of Hob- H- 8 t Hoy. j Wo find i- the Jifxltimore American, ol J a late date, a of the address ol our distinguisWl countyuian, H. O. S. Key. delivered at. a county meeting at , Prince Frederick in Calvert ou the 11th 1 ultimo. The President of the meeting (Col. Nathaniel Duke) in introducing; Mr. Key ttttked .that haring reebnlTy' ink , with Mr Key, ami conversed with him - upon the issues of the day. and the best i means of restoring peace and harmony to the country, and of removing all causes of the present unhappy dissensions, be be came impressed with the propriety of an address by Mr. Key to the people of the . county, and accordingly, on consultation with many other citizens of the countv. earnestly invited Mr. Key to attend the meeting, which, after urgent solicitations, ’ Mr. Kcv assented to. ! Mr. Key. having been introduced to the meeting spoke substantially as fol (lows: '1 hat having yielded to the solicitation iof Mr. Duke and other friends, he ap peared with some diffidence and hesitation, in view of thu exciting and alarming ques tions now agitating the country —-questions ’ requiring the greatest degree of wisdom for their solution. That the high regard which he had always entertained for the people of Calvert, and the kind conridera* I tion with which he had ever met at their hands, made him always ready to respond ,to any call to appear and consult with them upon the questions of the dav. That heretofore in his visits to Calvert be had appeared ns a champion in party contests; and he could wish that such wi re now tin case. But more momentous issues were now presented to the people of that coun ty. and to the whole country—issues in their magnitude and importance absorbing all mere party conflicts, and obliterating all party lines. In such a state of affairs he hoped all party prejudices ami heart burnings would be laid aside, and sacrifi ced to a firm and decided effort to promote the beat interest of uur Sluts uml of tiu; country. Our country, founded by sages and patriots, and cemented with heroes' I blood. now renowned and honored throughout the world for its arts and it arnis, for its free institutions, and its equal laws, for its rapid advancement in all that constitutes a nation’s wealth and a nation's power, to which the the struggling peo ple of other climes look us the beacon light to guide them to a harbor of safety, and whose institutions they are striving to im itate—that country was now environed with |*orils of the most alarming and mo mentous character, which threatened the whole fabric of the Union with destruction. A sectional and poscriptive party, trampling under foot the solemn guaran tees of the Constitution and the laws made in pursuance of its provisions to secure the rights of our section of the confederacy, having succeeded by a mere brute majority in securing their ’ section al triumph, was now rioting in the full assurance of wielding the whole power of tho (Jovernmont, and boasting of the approaching accomplishment of their fa natical schemes. Even Senators of the i United States were heard pronouncing! the election as a verdict of a jury of! the country in favor of making the Con 'stitutiun a Constitution of freedom throughout the land ; that blacks were to he on the same footing with whitet in the rights of citizenship, and that a “higher law” than the law of the Constitution was to be freely resorted to to promote their sec- 1 lioualaggrandizement. In the ir*olcnee of their shouts of victory, they do nor hesitate to 'proclaim that there shall be no more slave States, no more Dred JSc-ott decisions, but that the Courts of the country are to be re cons’ructed. the Constitution construed al together ia In-half of freedom, and the South stripped of its rights in the com mon territory of the nation. 1 Mr. Key did not think that the South looked upon the election of Lincoln as so 1 much in itself cause of alarm and disqui-) pt, but as being the culminating point | id sectionalism—as an index of the ob jects and designs and tho unfriendly feel ings of the Northern section of the Con federacy. i For himself he confessed that he wns overwhelmed with horror when he con sidered the dangers that beset us, aid the perplexing problem of the •olution of tho momentous questions cal .icg for sj-eedy and decisive action. That he loved this Union, and would do anything consistent with the maintenance* of our constitutional rights, and our bon- 1 or and equality in the republic. What i-hall be the position of Maryland in the i crisis? Her social ;md other interests and the nature of her institutions, her evm- ‘ parities and her feelings, all combined to unite her destiny irrevocably with the South. Shun.d not her voue be heard in the midst of the danger? Mr. Key thought that Maryland should consult with the States of \ irginia. Ttnnessec, Ken tucky, North Carolina and Missouri, the States really the most interested in ques tions in dispute. That Maryland, from her position. from her conservative chant* | *r am] past hi ftory. coaid appropriately act as the pacificator iii the eaermii ‘ But hour was she to act? She convening the Iffgudatai* in enter that i 5 Convention of the people may he prompt Ij Ueil. Speedy action was ad) iuinnf ft**, **Wirofa tPw days or aV* weeks might be fatal. The border Sfatei should unite in a calm and emphatic de> mand for the removal of all causes of cow plaint, of all unfriendly and hostile legis latum, and the enforcement of ail thr constitutional rights of the South, an 1 for ample guarantees for the future, and ( failing in that, he did n *t hesitate to anv that the lot ol Maryland should, without further delay, be cast with her Southern ; sis.ers. That this wa.- no day for recrimi nati-m of our sifter States of the extreme ; South, our partners in a common dan ger. The issue, whether rightly or wrongly made, whether precipitately made or not, was before us. and was to be met. Thu* he had no word of complaint to utter against South Carolina. That her people must act as a consideration of thoir best interests should dictate; that he had hopes that li*-r precipitancy may be the means of bringing the vexed question to a solution, and in securing our rights, and finally bringing security and peace. He earnest ly Imped that from this nettle danger we may pluck the flower safely. That lie belived the hearts of the people of the Republic throbbed with a warm desire to preserve the heritage bequeathed to us by our fathers. ’J hat l\g spoke as a slave holder and an old citizen, who had all his life devoted great attention to tlia affairs of the country, and could but pledge him self that what he said was the dictate of ago ami the honest sentiments of a true heart. W hat was to he done? .South Car <dina was responsible to her own people, Maryland to her own. Maryland war; pledger! by the last Legislature to act when the crisis should arrive. That he had no doubt of the devotion of the Governor to the bust interests of the State nnd of the Southland that be would endeavor to oar rj o, it the true wishes of the people, when it become apparent that a meeting of the legislature was desired. That the Legis lature, when assembled. would doubtless promptly call a convention and tbits place Maryland in a position fo act as t!io emer gency may require. That in conference with the Middle States a firm appeal should be made to the North to correct its untoward public sentiment and section al hostility, which was more to be de plored than any mere legislative enact ments. which were as nothing and void when brought in conflict with the federal arm in enforcing the laws of the land. That all our rights under the Constitution should be guaranteed, and failing in that, it will then be lime for Maryland to stand side by side with .South Carolina. With out such guarantees there must be a Southern Confederacy. But yet calmness and firmness should be used with sincere h<>pe of restoring peace and stability to fair Republic. That he doubted not but that the county which gave birth to the ( itief Justice of the Supreme Court would be true to the rights of the Sntth, as announced by that august tribunal. Mr. Key spoke with much force and eloquence, and appeared deeply moved by tbc momentous nature of the subject. Ilis remarks were listened to with profound at tention. and called forth repeated applause, from the audience. It is regretted that greater justice cannot be done to Mr. Keys' remarks in this imperfect sketch. U pen the conclusion of Mr. Key’s remaks, and after addresses from other g( nilemen were heard, the meeting, on motion of James fc*. j Tongue, E.-qr, unanimously tendered their thunks to Mr. Key for Lis able and elo quent views upon the crisis of the Union. TO MY CONSTITUENTS. Ever since the meeting of Congress I have watched with intense, at times hope ful. but now fearful interest the progress of events; and I feel that the crisis has arrived when I should be derelict to niv duty as your representative if 1 did no't solemnly warn you of the perilous situation of the General Government. It is not my present purpose to enter upon a discussion of the unhappy causes which hare led to the dangers which surround us on every side, but simply to announce to you the existing condition of nur public affairs, in order that you mav. in conjuctiou with our citizens' in other portions of tht Mate, prepare to meet the gathering storm which, in nv jndg t. nothing bufGoo’s Providence (that has been so often heretofore interposed for our safety) can turn from its destruc tive cour-c. 1 have almost lost all con fidence in human power to avert the ca lamity which threat, n* ns. f can sec no ray of hope to s.*.iie nr to a!br the justly exur-ptrated feelings of the South in the antecedents ef the Preside d elect. 1 5r m pi nice.-, oi hU cuuiidvntiai ■ L, —U— L. __ ■ the rf^rosen- In the meanwhile. uv arc drifting with i fearful rapidity towards revolution, and, .! probably. eivti war. with all its attendant I horrors: and there is lib rally nothing being done, in the only quarter where anything ran he done, to avert, or even temporarily to stay, our onward course to a dissolution of the Govern ment. It is my firm conviction, based on information of the most reliable charac ter, that, unless there can be effected a speedy adjustment of the existing difficul ties between the two gr?at sections of the country, satisfactory to the Souih and conservative of its rights, before , the constitutional termination of the pre ' sent Congress, six States of the Union, and probably seven, will no longer re j main members of the Confederacy, ' And yet. in the midst of this revolu tion “as yet bloodless,” while our politi cal edifice is crumbling into ruins— whilst .Sutcs arc in the very act of re solving themselves into their original ele ments ot nationality, which will probably he followed by the internal disintegration of other States. Marylan 1 is left bound hand and foot, without the power of act ing through her legitimate authorities, ; and almost defenceless, save in the stout , hearts and nuked hands of her brave and gallant sons. j In this emergency Ido not hesitate to say that it is a matter of imperative neces sity that our Legislature should be con vened. without delay, for the purpose of calling a convention, through which the ' people may act in their sovereign capacity. ; and decide, when the exigency may exist, the fntare of Maryland—to interpose, if possible, for the preservation of the Union, bat, if unsuccessful in that patri otic effort, then to determine what course of action would he mo*t cansiotent with j her her interests and her ! dignity. Surely the people may be j • trusted with the exercise of those high pie- ‘ ;rogativcsl If not, to whom shall we | confide them ? It is yet possible, nay probable, that if by forbearance and inuder itiou, a civil war at the outset can be avoided, a new, powerful and homogeneous confederacy may be formed by the gravitation towards Maryland, as a common nucleus (with W ashington as its Capital) of numerous States, under the impelling force of a mu tual interest ami common policy, exclud ing those States from whose barbarism, misguided euthanasia and fanaticism have proceeded “all our woes,” thus rendering it possible that we may “pluck the tlower safety from the toltle danger In view of these considerations and of the innuinenry of the danger by which we are threatened. [ respectfully suggest that primary meetings, without distinction of j.arty. be bald as soon as practicable, in each election precinct of the Sixth Con gressional District, in order to secure a fall and fair expression of public opin ion on ;he proprieiy of calling the Gene ral Assembly together; on that question all may unite without pledging themselves to a future policy. ! As for myself, I shall remain at the post of duty to which you Lave called nn* with the earnest desire, as becomes four representative, to use every effort to re store peace and tranquility within the bor ders of the Republic, and to exhaust eve ry measure of conciliation to preserve the Union, not incompatible with yor rights and honor.

The [ . v '->u il g man paid a visit to the’ old family I H - nt - where indeed be was accustomed to 1 spend his summer vacations, to collect the innumerable documents the French law requires the officer who performs mar riages to have in his ham's before he '•lamps the civil contract made before . him with its Meieau and Persian char acter. He asked his father for his mother's burial certificate. The father was ex tremely embarrassed by this appeal; but as no banns could he published until the burial certificate had been lodged at the mayor s office where the marriage was to he contracted, the father at last broke silence, say ng: “My dear boy. 1 have for a great many years concealed a Secret from you, because its possession would prove a painful buithcn to you and because the honor of our house is inter ested in its maintenance, and your lender years have hitherto rendered you inca pable of preserving it. Tour mother lives. She is a lunatic. Come with me, and I'll let you see Imr.” He carried his son, who was trembling with emotion, into an old lower which formed part of the architecture of the t chateau, and they went to the top of it. i The chamber on the lust floor was the lunatics cell. Ho opened the door, tho son entered it. ard kneeling at the poor woman's feet, sobbed; “Mother ! moth-' er I in a most heart rending manner. 1 1 hose touching appeals, which would ..have moved stone idols almost made no impression on the poor lunatic. Her stare continued as vacant and her lips as son, his soul ; sick at the 'Vuae poctaclc, then gently! 1 upbraided his father for denying him the melancholy *o,ace of sharing the at tentions he. the father, had bestowed upon his wife wreck for so many years. 1 lie father repeated the excuses he had! first given of his son's youth and the importance of the secret to the family’s happiness. It became necessary to avow this mis-’ fortune to th<- bride's family, and they , naturally desired to sec for themselves, as the story that the wife was dead and the story that she was crazy, seemed some- i thing awkward, which needed explana tion. Several members ot the family went down to the distant chateau, and the p..or lunatic was introduced. As soon as she; • saw herself surrounded by witnesses she • said in a calm tone: “I am not mad.
