GREAT NAMES TO-JUSTIFV GREAT EH RORS. The habit of using a good name to cover nn evil deed is as old as civilization itself. It has been a practice with the advocates of Disunion to use the names of Washington, Jkpfebson, and Madisom, to shield and sanction their designs—and this has been done North and South. Even Mr. De Bow, President of the late Southern Convention at Knoxville, Tenn., coujd not refrain falling into this 1 practice. We copy from his speech the following passage: ThoughthenI am unwilling to make any more of the kind of sacrifices which are asked for, to save the Union, and havo bosn forced by high and imperious necesaity, to become reconciled to the idea of letting its enemies if they will, consummate their mad purposes, and force upon us the vlttttOus'add putriotio purpose of dissolution, I yet yield to no one in my estimate of what the Union Mtofi GkDftble of twioming, 1 **^ of wfcat blessings it might nave conferred upon mankind, if administered according...

They constitute the governing agencies of the other side of the water. It would be just as sensible to consult the foot or the great toe of a manJm order to ascertain what tho intellect and tile will propose to do; as to counsel with the smaller States of the Continent in order to foretell the future political movements of Europe. Such, at all events, has been tho past But great changes, inaugurated by the Elder Naj>oleok, and rapidly recurring under various phases, with widely different objects and purposes, stimulated by different...
