    BAD STATE OF THINGS. – The Wilmington Journal says that “politically there is a division of the Union – there are two countries. New England has as little affinity with the United States as England or Russia has. She is wholly represented by persons antagonistic to the principles of the constitution, filled with hatred to the South – isolated in all their ideas. We cannot really see any sort of motive for keeping up the name of a political connection, when all the reality of Union has passed away.”

    This is very bad. After all the trouble we had here at the South two years ago to save the Union by electing Buchanan, it is certainly hard to find out that our labor has been lost, and that instead of salvation Mr. Buchanan’s administration has brought destruction to the Union.
