P„, the time for hol^iug the Nashville Convention approaches, what do we see ’ A well-concerted ' „f ,,f.,.ratien, harmoniously adopted, and likely I o.tc..iUd with energy and courage' Do we see the iouthem people rising, as one ipan, to second the view? of those who, in this matter, aspire to be their Ica-lers ? Are there any indications of preparation i ,r su momantous and hazardous a scheme as that of dl-memhcring a great republic against the conset.t ofapow erful majority, -who hold in their hands tnean.^ of re-iitacce and coercion formidable beyond those ■which are held by any other nation? Do we even hear the members of Congress, who .represent the s-.ti’h. .‘peaking the same language, insisting on the same Jemdniis, and declaring themselves ready for the airae alternative ’ There is nothing of ail thu. The nearer we come to the moment which is to decide this question, the are those who have been talking of disunion, prepared for the event. There is no concert among the sbx'.e holding class in the several states, and none even among their members of Congress. They are not agreed as to what they are to ask of the free .states ; they arc still less agreed as to what they will do, if their demands aro not granted. No step ha« been taken to provide the f'.rce with force, and resisting the federal in the attem p t it will assuredly make to enforce obedience to its laws. If here is a conspiracy fbe Union, there never was a conspiracy ] with so little forethought, not even a negro insurrec- ‘ 'ae would have supposed that the counsels cf Mr t'aihouo, who has been looked to as the principal mover of this project of separation, would have .‘ome It with those who have been so loudly threaten- isunion.

T h a t law, though crudely and most inartiScially drawn, was a practical security to tho female sex, of the most be­ neficent character. ?3o law has ever been passed in this state, probably, afieeting a larger variety of in­ terests,01, noneone ttblehniCQ hasaa beeneen moreoro universallyt n w n o m i i i i v j popn- lar, and none which it would be more impru­ dent or impolitic to repeal.
