Un our nrst page win oe iouna anoitier article on this subject from the New Orleans Commercial Times, whicli is worth reading by all who would understand in what light the great npproaching aniislavery contest is viewed at the South. The writer rcfers iu strong terms to the National Era just eslablished at Washington. Papers generally inthe Slave Siaies have been moderate in their expressions respecting it, wbiïe they all view it as a decisive evidence qL the onward progress of antislavery feeling In the North. Whether the esiablishmcnt at Washington willneet with violence, is doubt ful. Our own impression is, (hal the danger, ïf any wili arise from some small local aíFair-, such as rcmarks in the paper on the escape of Skves from the district, or somcthing of thftt kind. Things of this gort will often rouse up a mob, when dissatisfaction is fanned into violcnce by a few leading, inderested persons. How-erer the Doctor is jnst the man for the tation. He has lived through severul mobs : ho is careful and wary about giving needless oiTence ; but in defending his rights he will be found neither a ■ervile nor a doughface.
