We do not Despair of the Republic. , Though our country is environed with perils , and seems to be trembling upon the verge of ru- | in, yet we do not "despair of the Republic," I but have an abiding faith that all things will j work together for good, and that the pillars of our Republic will be planted upon firmer foun dations than heretofore. Whether the "wish is father to the thought," or whether it is because, , as Goldsmith says, "Hope, like a glimmering taper's light, Adorns and cheers the way, And as darker grows the night, Emits a beigut£B ray," we know not, but our heart still responds to the hopeful strain ofthe song : "There's a good time coming, boys."

Union Voice In Georgia. One of the best articles upon the present cri- j 1 Is which we have seen was written by Hon. J. ' P. King, of Georgia, and published in the Geor- | | gia Constitutionalist. We are sorry that we have not room for more than the extract we give below: On tbe subject of onr sister States, one ques tion mast frequently occur to as. Why is it that we are so much more excited and so much more anxious for dissolution, than the border States? They lose five hundred slaves by the bad faith of the free States where we lose one, and should be more excited and more anxious for a changp, if by a change they conld look for a remedy. The reasons, I apprehend, are these: First, they appreciate the dangers of desolating border wars, with all their attendant crimes and destruction of life and property; second, they see no remedy in separation, bat only a tenfold aggravation of the evil. They are near neigh bors to people of the border free States, and un derstand the whole subj...

A Lesson From History. In the "Edinburg Review" for January, 1809, occurs the following passage: "If such immense benefits have resulted from the prosperity of the United States, how many times greater will be those which must necessa rily flow from the prosperity of South America ? If the population ofthe United States, amount ing, perhaps, to 6,000,000, afford so very extra ordinary a demand lor British commodities, what may not the population of Sooth America, extending to no less than 16,000,000, be expected to afford f Let the figures, -ays the New York "World," show now tbese expectation, have been fulfilled ; and let a prudent philosophy lay to heart the lesson thence derived: Population cf United States in 1809, 6,000,000 Population of United States in 1859, 30,000,000 Population of Spanish American Re publics in l_o9, 16,000,000 Population of Spanish American Re publics in 185y 19,000,000 Value of exports of the United States in 1809 $52,000,000 Value of exports of the Unit...

A Word of Caution. We would whisper a word of oaution into the ears of all persons in this State favorable to the preservation ofthe Union, and especially would we whisper in the ears of the members of the Legislature. The great anxiety which has been manifested for the call of a State Convention has not proceeded so much from a desire to have our rights maintained and grievances re dressed in tbe Union as to secure the first essen tial step to get Virginia out of the Union. The Legislature oan do all that the Convention could, save and except to get Virginia out of the pres ent Union—hence it is that we find all the dis unionists warm advocates of the immediate call of a State Convention. They would have the Legislature to call a Convention as soon as pos sible, and t...

For some time after the propriety of holding a State Convention had begun to be mooted, , we were unable to bring our mind to a positive conclusion in reference to it, but as soon as the _ evidence became very strong tbat it waa the purpose of the warmest advocates of the call of a Convention to use it for the purpose of seces eion, we felt it to be our patriotic duty to op pose it, and to raise our voice in warning tbat the people might be apprised of the danger to be apprehended. We felt perfectly convinced from the begin ning tbat a Convention would be called, but that did not prevent ns from forming and ex pressing the opinion that it would be unwise.— We feel tbat we would be unworthy the position of Editor of » publio journal if we did not pos sess the firmness to oppose whatever measures we might believe to be impolitic, however pop- | ular tbey might be.
