TI10 " Life and Correspondence of John A. Quitmnn" comes at an opportune time. Gen. Quitman was a secessionist of the stmitcst sect, a prophet of the extremo school of Southern rights, a defender of every filibustering seheme, and an earnest advocate of the project of a Southern Confederacy. Tho whole secession movement which lias just Inkcn place has been carried in close accordance with bis plans. Its present and future policy, as far as can bo judged, is exactly what he urged. An intimate triend and militnry comrade of Jefferson Davis, their views of Southern progress and expansion were alike. We are entitled to regard Gen. Quitman's views, as dis played in this biography by a friendly hand, as indicative of tho designs of the Montgomery Government. Yet he died over two years since, and his plans and policy were of no recent date, len or fifteen years ngo they were plainly given out, and they add another proof that the destruction of our Federal Unton bos been plotted and prepared for a long time, without reference to any fancied grievances of the present. John A. Quitman, like many of tho bitterest opponents of freedom, first drew the breath of me at me tree nuriu. xiu wua uyfu ui imiuu-beck, N. Y., in 1793, and laid the basis of his robust frame by enrly rambles among hills and fields. When about twenty years old, furnished with a fair sharo of school learning, a stout heart, and a scauty purse, bo set out for tho far wot, men no turiner man umo, to stuuy law, and carve out his future. Here he traded his pistols for Cruise's Digest, an! studied law to good purpose, acting also as agent of,the Land Office, lie foresaw tho future wealth of Ohio, and the wonderful effects which would be produced by tho " grand New York canal," which was then in progress. But money was scarce, and professional duties hard in that half-settled region, ill supplied with roads and markets, and without largo towns. The prosperity of tho cotton regions invited bis intelligent gaze, and in the fall of 1821 ho bade farewell to tho community at Delaware, where be was generally esteemed nud respected, and set out on horseback for Natchez. There be settled, obtained, by great good fortune, a hare in tho prosperous law business of William B. Griffith. Natchez was a small place, but considerable trade centred there, and it was not an ill prospect for an active young lawyer, when there were one hundred and twenty indictments tried at the first term after his arrival. From early life he was n Democrat, oppose 1 to what wera then called Ilamiltonian views of tbe Federal Government, and he entered into politics with vijror and determination. Like most of the frontier politicians, a story is related of him that he won an election by his skill at a shooting-match. lie was elected to the Leg islaturc, and was afterwards made Chancellor. His taste for military pursuits resulted in the formation of an excellent volunteer company, under his own care, and ho received various commisssions in the militia of Mississippi, which brought him into notice when the Mexican war broke out. His services in that struggle were valuable, aud are related by his biographer in a spirited stylo. nEl-UUIATION. In 1813 the great question of repudiation arose, the final decision of which has fixed a lasting stain upon Mississippi. Fivo millions of dollars worth of State bonds wcro issued and disposed of in the ninikct, under an act of the Legislature loaning tuo credit ot tho state to the Union Bank. Much logic was chojrped upon the question whether the issue was made in conformity with tho constitutional provisions upon the subject ; but the grand fact was and is undisputed, that the Stato received and used the money, and then refused to meet the obligations ; whilo tho very Governor who issued and signed the bonds was foremost in the cry of repudiation. Not n soul dreamed of such a con summation till after the money was squandered in extravagance and party corruption, and then, when innocent holders in Europe were to be tbe chief sufferers, tho unhullowed yelp arose. General Quitman was of opinion that tho bonds wcro illegally issued, but that they ought to be paid upon principles of general justice. But it seems that his sense of justice was much modified by the tone in which it was asked. Humble petition did very well. But, on the bond-payers' side, it was argued that England would mako reprisals, and seizo the cotton of the State in compensation. "This roused the pride of our people. Millions they might havo been prevailed upon to concede; liberally they would have given, had the application been put in soiuo other form than a peremptory demand for payment, but Dot a dime would be yielded to insult and menace. It was on ono of these occasions, in a public meeting, after Quitman had pronounced a warm appeal for tho payment of tho bonds, that the speaker who followed him spoke of English cruisers in the Gulf, and tho right to seize our cotton. The patriot orator immediately rose, and, with a voice of indignation, and bis whole frame trembling with emotion, said : ' Sir, in that event, 1 join my countrymen who oppose the payment of the bonds. My sword ay, sir. the last drop of my blood, shall he spent in resisting the demand. My State, sir may she be always right; but, right or wrong, the State, sacred, intangible, and uuprofancd, for ever !'" WAB WITH MEXICO. At tho outset of tho war, by tho earnest soli-citions of many distinguished Southern gentlemen, Quitman received tho appointment of Brigadier General, and joined the little army of General Taylor. lie rendered gallant service at Monterey, whero a horso was snot under him. "On tho 22d, Quitman, with Bidgcley's battery, was ordered to hold the woiks he had stormed on tho preceding day. Tho position was uncomfortable ; they were exposed to an incessant cannonade, and the corpses of tho slaughtered Mexicans had become offensivo ; the weather was wet and cold ; they had neither blankets nor fire. Tho general shared the faro of bis troops, and established his quarters Life and Corresnonilence of John A. Quit man, Major General U. S. A., and Governor of the State of Mississippi. Ily J. F. II. Claiborne. New York: Harper & Brothers. 1SC0. on ono of ltidgeloy's guns. It was rere his faithful "ervant Harry, who had followed the assaulting colninn, was heard remonstrating with his master, and imploring him, ' for tho sake of mistress and tho children,' not to ex-poio himself no much. 'Take care of yourself, Hftrry,' snid the general. ' Help tho wounded ; keep ai near mo as you can. I must push 011 with tho foremost, und trust to Providence.' " As to the conduct of the war, General Quitman's fixed opinion wn, that it should bo one of conquest aud occupation, and not a war on what he styled Polk's feeble maxim, to conquer a peace. " He regarded, and justly regarded, the great bulk of the Mexicans as a bastard and robber race, incapable of self-government, and fit only for servitude and military rule." His desiro wus to subdue and annex the whole of Mexico, and govern it by tho sword until the people were tutored and improved by immigration enough to be incorporated with the Republic. The writer of this biography, himself an earnest Southern Bights mtn, thus expresses one argument of the aggressive school: "Humanity and interest, tho stability of our institutions, and a wiso forecast for the future, demand of us more than the intervention of nn abortive diplomacy. Civilized communities provide guardians for the helpless and imbecile, and defences against the lunatic and the outlaw. Mexico is, and long has been, in this relation to us, and as her next neighbor aud nearest friend, and for our own safety, we should establish these relations with her, with or without her consent. American protection and immigration would soon restore peace, and be the guaranty for her future prosperity." Till. FLAN OF SECESSION. It seems now well established, and is believed, both by our citizens and by observing foreign ers, that the secession of tho Gulf States is but the execution of a conspiracy which has been ripening for years. This movement has been occasioned partly by tbe belief, real or assumed, that great pecuuiary gain would result to the cotton States by forming a separate Government, and partly by the pertinacious plotting of hungry demagogues, anxious for spoils and honors which they saw wcro avoiding their grasp in the Federal Union. As early us 1850, and. apropos of the question of admitting California, General Quitman's letters, while Governor of Mississippi, foretell the movement of last winter. He asserts that secession is necessary and unavoidable, and ad vises a Convention to annul connection with the Union, and to adapt the organic law to the new state of things, "aud that, meanwhile, an effective military system be established, and patrol uuues most rigiaiy emorcea. ne recommenas Ihe formation of n central committee to arrange Elans, referring to Colonels Davis, Thompson, rown, and others. " In the mean time, every patriot should leave no point untouched where his iuflucuco can be exerted. Cheer on the faithful, strengthen the weak, disarm the sub-missionists with instructions, send the fiery cross through the land, aud summon every gallant son of Mississippi to the rescue." When Lopez was preparing for his ill-starred Cuban expedition, he had, as is well known, the most active sympathy and aid of Gen. Quitman and other ultraists. The plan, like Walker's expeditions, which met with like sympathy, was but a step in the scheme of secession. It was supposed and contended by these plotters that, to use tho words of our author, " Cuba, once free, and her resources nut in motion by an energetic will, the regenera tion of Mexico and of tho distracted Governments to the South of it would follow, and a new empire, the centre of the world's production and commerce, governed by the great principle of unrestrained free trade, would soon be established." In 1851 and 1832, tho correspondence between Quitman and various editors and politicians of the extreme school lays down rules of conduct which fully explain and account for tho recent scenes in the Charleston Convention, and separate secession of South Carolina iu advance of any similar movement elsewhere. An extended und active organization was kept up in tho counties ; uieetiucs wcro held, and the question of secession discussed year after year. All the arguments of interest and prejudice which ingenuity could devise were sounded in the eais of the impetuous Southern yonth. Candor could not deny nor art explain away the backwardness of the South in the arts and practical application of mechanics, in commercial enterprise, in popular wealth and improvement. But ull this was persistently attributed to the fatal effects of the Federal Union. The institution of slavery, of course, was a blessing, aud could not for a moment bo admitted to have anything to do with producing this backwardness. On the contrary, it was an element of sure prosperity, if it could only bo extended westward and southward over the warm cotton regions of Mexico and Central America, and reinforced by now importations from Africa. Tho whole blame of tho comparative failure of the South to keep pace with the North in the race of improvement was laid upon the anti-slavery sentiment, which retarded the growth of slave labor in tho natural way of importation, and prevented or embarrassed the acquisition of more. territory, and upon tho alleged inequality of taxes produced by the tariff system. These derived strength only from the Federal Union, which wus thus represented as a huge upas tree, distilling deadly poison upon Southern hopes and enterprise. The present generation ot Southern men has grown to manhood iu the midst of such teachings. Is it to bo wondered at that many have imbibed erroneous notions of political economy and Ameri can policy, which nothing but experience will correct We have not time to notice the other features of General Quitman's life. He served a term or so in Congress, and died in July, 1838. His Congressional course was of the extremest school, and his great speech 011 Southern rights, as his biographer calls it, seems to us one of the most cloudy and illogical attempts at frittering away the Constitution which even that school has ever achieved. In it we may perceive, however, tho indications of that belief iu Comontions, und acquiescence iu their overriding tho Constitution nud laws of the State, and the principle of seeking tho opinion of tho people, which has so singularly characterized all tho secession movements. The sovereignty of the State, that mysterious entity winch is always rampant in tho secessionist mind, and always ready to be offended, exists, it would seem, not in tbe Constitution, not iu tho Legislative or Executive department, not even in the.peoplo of tho State, nor in all of these together; hut in a Convention, j which may be deemed to compromise the sublimated quintessence of democracy, and is paramount to all the others. We may be pardoned for suspecting that the real secret of this theory is, that the Conventions are moro easily managed by designing politicians, being assembled on short notice, and in the midst of popular excitement and passion. Such seems to be tho teaching of history. These volumes aro prepared in a creditable manner, and published in attractive form. They present the topics discussed from the extreme point of view, and as such are not without especial interest at thts time. It is evident that all of General Quitman's connection with the conspiracy to withdraw tho cotton States from the Union is not hero unfolded. It is not yet time to disclose the plot and its workings; we can us jet only pick up hints here and there, and judge from, manifest results.

SCHENCK, the Lung Doctor. The Proprietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SYRUP, the inventor of SCHENCK'S RESPIROME-TEH, the only instrument that can to a certainty detect the slightest murmur of tho respiratory organs. This is of great importance to Dr. SCHENCK, to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether it is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleuritic, or Dytpcptic Consumption, and whether it is both lungs or only one that aro diseased. It requires constant and long practice to become familiar with every sound or rattling of a diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr. SCHENCK to get examined that have been examined by their family physician, who told them that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a closo examination with tho Respirometer, it is often found that it Is an affection of the bronchial tube, and, by getting a healthy action of the liver and tone to the stomach, the sufferer is soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine that will stop a cough Is certain death to the pa tlent. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood; hemorrhage follows, and, iu fact, stopping the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaints and Dyspepsia are the causes of two-thirds of tbe cases of Consumpllon. Persons are at this time complaining with dull pain In tbe side, bowels sometimes costive and sometimes too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; everything that is eaten lies heavy on the stomach ; acidity, belching up wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time in this way. Let them take a heavy cold, and, before they get rid ot it, then another, then is the time to know what to do, then is the time to go to Dr. SCHENCK and get your lungs examined, then is the timo to know what cough medicine to take. Stop that cough sudden, und then tho lungs, liver, und stomach, are all put into an Inactive state, and, before tho patient is aware of his situation, the lungs ure a mass of sores, and death must soon follow. SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" Is an ex-pectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly, but, when assisted by tho SEAWEED TON 10, to Improve the tone of the stomach, and restoro a healthy action of tbe digestive organs, with the MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a healthy action of tbe liter. When these are taken together, or as indicated, they are sure to bring the constitution back to a healthy state when affected by any of the above diseases. Dr. SCHENCK believes that too much cannot be said in favor of the curative powers of the MANDRAKE PILLS. Their action Is peculiar, but certain, in ull cases of torpid bowels or diseased liver, which is too frequently the primary cause of a broken-down condition of the whole system, and often passes under tho name of CONSUMPTION, when that disease docs not exist at all, or if It does, is readily curable by a proper attention to restoring a healthy action of tbe stomach, liver, and other functions, whose duty it Is to eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits which clog and render sluggish the wheels of the animal organism. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life sometimes several months, by keeping the bronchial tubes free from the putrid matter which impedes their functions, when the lungs are too far gone to cure. There is no medicino that can cure Consumption when both lungs are much diseased, and Dr. Schenck would rather every one would know their true condition before taking bis medicine. Ho treats no diseases but those of tho Lungs, Liver, and Stomach, aud makes no charges tor advice, or examining lungs iu the ordinary way, or as physicians generally do ; but for a thorough examination with the Rt spirometer he charges three dollars, and wishes every one, rich or poor, that has a Cough, Pain in the Side or Shoulder-blade, troubled with Cottiveness or Diarrhoea, Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spirits, Restlessness nt Night, or any other disease leading to Consumption, to call ou him as above ana get nls advice. Often, a twenty.fite cent box of SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE PILLS will riruove the cause of this great terror of the country Consumption. All of Dr. SCHENCK'S uitdiclues are prepared under his own supervision, nud sold, wholesale and retail, at his principal office in Philadelphia, No. 30 north Sixth street. Price of tho PULMONIC SYRUP, $1 per hot-tie, or six bottles for $-5. SEAWEED TONIC same as SYRUP. MANDRAKE PILLS, twenty-five cents per box.
