The New Cotton Fields.
The following is Dr. Livingstone's letter
describing his discovery in Africa of a nex
cotton region. The South need not feel
any great alarm, we think, of any very
early competition from this quarter :
To the Editor of the Manchester Guar-
dian-Sir : You are at liberty to publish
the enclosed letter from the brother of Dr.
Livingstone. Ile'6ends me six samples of
cotton, whicly" value as follows : No. 1.
7 1-2d to 7 3-4d; No. 2, 6 3-4d to 7d;
No. 3, 6 3-4d to7d barely ; No. 4, 6 1-2d
to 6 3-4; No. 5, 5 1-2d to 6d; No 6,
5 1-2d to 5 3-4d; all exceedingly useful
qualities, particularly the four first, The
two last will be substitutes, till improved,
for East Indian cotton. The cotton may
be seen here.
Yours, truly,
THOSE. CLEGG.

"River Shire, Nov. 4, 1859.
'"My Dear Mr. Clegg ; We have just
returned from visiting the Lake Nyassa,
the source of the river Shire, and, what -is
of greater importance, have discovered a
great coltt,,n-growing and cotion manufac-
turing country. The cotton is of two
kinds, native and foreign. The native is
short in thfstaple, and feels more like
wool than cotton. The foreign appears to
be of good, quality, with a staple from
three-fourths, of an inch to an inci in
length.- It is perennial, and requires plant-
ing only once in three years, while the na-
tive has to be planted annually in the.
highlands ; yet the people prefer the latter,
because, they say, it makes ,the stronger
cloth. We remarked to a number of in-
telligent-looking men in one village. -You
should plant plenty of cotton, and perhaps
the English will come soon and buy. it.'
,'Truly the country is full of cotton,' re,
plied one elderly man, who Was a trader,,
and had travelled much ; and our own ob-
servatfous confirmed the truth of this.
Everywhere we saw it while passing

Largest City in the World.
If the following account is true, London
is no longer the metropolis of our planet.
That distinction beloihgs to the Japanese
city of Jeddo, which a correspondent qf
the Boston Traveller thus describes: "But
what shall I say of this greatest and most
singular of a'.l cities 7 A volume is needed
to describe it, without attempting to give
its history. I have read of old Nineveh
arid Babyln below the ground, and seen I

miration on both sides of the Atlantic;
but one living Jeddo above th3 ground is
worth a hundred -old fogy cities below it.
I cannot give you an idea of it, it is so
unique, so unlike everything except itself,

so impossible as %ou wdl think. I have

A iteration of, Liquors.,

On -Wednesday. last Dr.' Hiram Cox,
Liquor Inspector of Cincinnati, lectured
in New York, at the request of liquor
dealers of that citv. In some tests made
before the audience, a specimen of "genu-
ine Otard brandy" yielded prussic acid.
A. sample of Port wine yielded sulphuric
acid (oil of vitriol), and another ot sherry
did the same. The Times says: "The
Lecturerisaid that he had been Liquor In-
spector of Hamilton county, Ohio, for five
years, and dunmg that tim..- had analyzed
2.67, samnple- o.f every pL.--ible variety of
liquors, includmi, nWines and malt liquors.
OuL of th'ii tninb;.rhr lie wlt found 350

nii-\ed liquors, wvith alcohul, &c, and in
the ba~l:uice weri foutttlau~lpi.u rie acid, red

mrost every varied,, of pojison. In Phila-
delphia lhe analyzed s;iuiple.ltuom some
tihirty different stures of w-in'es, ales and
brandies. In one ease of lager lbeer, lhe
found sulphuric acid, albumen sulphate of
iron, salt answerer, but not a solitary
per" cuitage-of malt, or th flavor of hops.
In the city he did aot find a drop of pure
brandy. |mitationis were made there, which
would deeeivo th~ebest,.onnoiffsleirs~and yet
so pernicious that aspin, would eat through
the coats of the stomach and desdoy a

A Substitute for Preserves,
A lady writer in an exchange, commun-
icates the following bit of information ob-
tained where she 'took tea last."
A dish of what I took to be preserves
was passed to me, which, upon tasting, 1
was surprised to l*arn contained no fruit.
The ease with which it was prepared, and
the trifling cost of its materials, are not its
chief recommendations, for unless my tast-
ing apparatus deceived me, as it is not usu-
ally wont to do. it is emphaticaly a tip-top
substitute for apple sauce, apple butter,
tomato preserves and all that sort of thing.
Its preparation is as follows,. Moderate-
ly boil a pint of molasses from five to
twenty minutes, according to its consis-
tency, then add three eggs thoroughly
beaten hastily stirring them in, and con-
tinue to boil a few minutes longer, when

I arrived here at a very late hour last
night, on an oil train, and might as well
have come on train oil, a^we were sixteen
hours behind time. "All trains are behind
time here. I learn, ownii to the accumu-
lation of oil on the track at this-nd of the
road. The oil fries out of the ground and"
lubricates the rail's for a great distance.-
We 6houldln'% arrived here at all if trie pas-
sengers hadn't got out and sprinkled the
track with-cigar ashes.,
I slipped out of bed (nobody 'arises'
here; we all- slip into bed and slip out,)
at an early hour this morning and began
my investigations. I found a section eram
bracing fourteen thousand acres of laud
chuck full of oil* springs.
HOW THE WOMEN FRY DOUGH-NUTS.
Drilling is unnecessary here, as the oil
boils up iu springs, sometimes to the
height of twenty-five feet, and is caught
in tin pails as it comes down. On a hot
day, I am told, it is no unusual thing to
see the women frying dixgh-nuts in these
jets pf oil.Tno balds (of dough are dropped
into the jets, where they arc allowed to'
toss about like a cork in a fountain, until
they are fried by the heat of the sun.

Twenty armed Lou&!anians fifty yards
behind their champion and his seconds
and surg-eon, and oppbtite them as far be-
hinid Bowie and his seconds' and surgeon,
twenty armed Mississilpians. Behold the
heights of Natches thxonged with specta-
tors. and a steamer in' the river rounded
to, its deck black witht passengers, watch-
ing with a deep 1hitret the scene. Tho
plan of fight ,was- 1o exchange shots
twice with pistols, a-d to, close with
knives, Bowie being armed with his own
terrible weapon, At the first fire both
parties escaped. At tie second the Louis-
ianian was too quick i'd took advantage
of Bowie, whOowaited the word. At this
Bowie's second cried ,:oul play 1' and shot
the Louisianian dead._ -The second of the
latter instantly killed the slayer of his
-principal. Bowie droic his knife into this
man, The surgeons w crossed blades,
while, with loud battle cries, came on the
two parties offierinds, the light of battle
in their eyes. In a' moment t-the whole
were engaged in a feariul conflict. Dirks,
pistols, and knives were used .with fatal
effect, until one party drove the other from
the field, I do not knaw how many were
killed and wounded in all, but it was a

The Last Good Night.

Close her eyelids- press them gently
O'er the dead and leaden eyes,
For the soul that made them lovely,
Hath returned unto the skies;
Wipe the death-drpps from &er forehead,
Sever one dear golden tress,
Fold her icy hands all meekly,
Smooth the little snowy dress;
Scatter flowers o'er her pillow-
Gentle flowers, so pure and white-
Lay the bud upon her bosom,
There-now softly say Good night,

Though our tears flow fast and faster,
Yet we would not call her back:
We are glad her feet no longer
Tread life's rough and thorny track ;
We are glad our Heavenly Father
Took hor while her heart was pure,
We are glad he did not leave her
All life's trials to endure ;
We are glad-and yet, the tear-drop
Falleth ;for. alas we know
That our fireside -will be lonely,
We shall miss bur darling so.

While the twilight shadows gather,
We shall wait in vain to feel
Little ai ms, all while and dimpled,
lound outr necks so softly steal;
Our wet cheeks will miss the pressure
Of sweet lips so warm and red, *
And our bosoms sadly, sadly,
Miss that darling's little head ..
Which was wont to rest there sweetly;
And those golden eyes, so bright,
We shall miss their loving glances,
We shall miss their soft Good Night.

When the morrow's sun is shining,
They will'take this cherished form,
They will bear it to the church-yard'
And consign it to the worm:
Well-what matter ? It is only
-The clay dress our darling wore;
God bath robed her as an angel,
ShU hath need of this no- more ;
Fold her hands, and o'er her pillow
Scatter flowers all pure and-white,
Kiss that marble brow, and whisper,
Once again, a last Good Night.

Customs of the Japanese.
In view of the anticipated presence of
the Japnaee u ;wtv,,asgy in 'Wachington, the
following from a correspondent of a New
York paper will not be considered *al-

iciously cuts his own throat. What, you
may ask, does he gain by this ? -He gains
his'lawsuit, for the dJguQMl land inevita-
bly. bedones th_, proper lty; o, Ws fa.ily.
A similar aberration of intellect prevails,
among the Japanese. Upon, tbp least pos-
sible provoca4ion a gentleman will seize
upon his sword and rip up his oyn bowels.-
Very fre quently Whule families are ordered'
by the government to do this deed upon
themselves, and they obey at once. The
poor Japanese, if any one offers him an
indignity, must sacrifice himself wherever
he may happen to be, or else consent to
live among his suicidal fellow-countrymen
a disgraced and lost man.
>With a party proceeding one day on an
excursion into the country we were fol,
lowed by two officers of the government
who performed this duty nnder strict
compulsion. Our American friends were
--thrown into a savage mood by the ofcur-
renee, ana-&fid~r-ft-hlrnse-r'ti.d bask and
closely confronted these officals.tHKL-loP

thiat^ we might safely aver, had never been
committed before, and which could only
be avenged by death WYithout, therefore,
making the slightest attempt at retaliation
on the body of his adver-sary, he unsheath-
ed his chief sword, which, beautifully
burnished, flashed for an instant in the
sunlight. The Yankee, meanwhile, extri-

It was needless, for at two strokes--two

As he reached the ground he cast up his
eyes at his adversary, and seeing him
standing near, apparently with no inten-
Lion of following his example, he express-

held. We Were all filled with dismay at
this strange event; while the brother of-
*ficial surveyed us with threatening looks
of the most intense horror. 'He expects
you to kill yourself in like manner and
with the same sword,' said the Sandwich
Islander. The American muttered out
something to the effect that he was not
such a fool. Meanwhile the distortions of
the dying man were painful to look upon;
the officer motioned us away, and went
down on his knees beside the wounded
body, and before he rose, a few seconds af-
terwards, the man was dead. ,

From the Charleston Courier.,
Florida aud Texas.
,-. : NO. I.
GAmtOVISLE, FLA.. April 1, 1860.
As a great deal ofedelusion prevails, beth
North. and South, respecting the relative
advantages which Florida and Texas pres-
ent to the emigrant, and as a long resi-
denqe in each of these Stale* has enabled
me to derive correct infurmation on this
subject. I 'propose communicating through
"your widely circulated journal, inra series
of brief articles, such facts as I think may
be useful to those who desire to emigrate
to those count lies.
As the first consideration with every
emigrant should be the character of the
climate in which he intends to make a
permanent residence, I shall commence by
discussing, first, the chlmate of Florida,
and then that 4,f.Texas.
The clitaitle of Florida, and especially
that of tihe Peninsular, taking it the whole
year round, is much more agreeable than
any other in the United Slates; and in-
deed it would be difficult to find a climate
in any part of the world so agreeable as
this. The winters are delightful- five days
'out of six being bright and cloudless, and
of the must agreeable temperature. In
the Southern portion of 'the Peninsular
frost is never felt, and even as far North
as the Suwannee River there are generally
but two or three nights in a whole winter
that ice as thick as a half dollar is found.
Carver, in discussing the winters in East
Florida that the most delicate vegetables
and plants of tile Carrabee Islands exper-
ience there not the least injury from that
season ; the orange tree, the banana, the
plantain, the guava, the pineapple, &c.,
grow. luxuriantly. Fogs are scarcely
"iOwn there,'aud no country can be more
salubrious.'"
The.winter in Florida resembles very
much that season which, in the middle
States, is termed the 'Indian Summer,"
except that in Florida the sky is perfectly
.clear, and the, atmosphere more dry and
plasticc Rain but rarely falls during the
winter months in Florida; three, four,
and not unfrequently five weeks, of bright,
clar and cioudleis days occur continuous.
ly. This is one of the greatest charms of
the winter climate in Florida ; and in this
respect it forms a striking contrast with
41ruoit every Stattjin the Union, and es-
pecially with Tei*aR, C't.foriia and Ore-

Contrary to'wbat might" be expected,
tllW.i&jmnfcr weat her in:EXst- Florida is
muc- rmre agreeable, and its heat.less
oppressive (though ils duration is much
longer,) than that which is experienced in
the Northern and Middle States. This is
attributable, in a great measure, to its pen-
insalar.position, which causes it to be fan-
ned on the East'by the Atlantic breezes.
and on, tlie West by those from the Gulf
of Mexicu, both of which can be distinctly
felt in the centre of the State. Besides
Whi, the Nirtheast trade winds play over
the whole Peninsula. The SUmmner nights
are invariably cool-and even the hottest
days are seldptn, oppresive in the shade.
'.This'is' more titan any State North of
Flhrida'can-boast, and is probably owing
to her; peninsular character. Paradoxical
as it may seem, tile thermometer ranges
much higher during the Summer months
in New York, Boston and Montreal, than
in -St. Augustine, Tampa Bay, or Key
West. in tio former cities, the thermom-
eter frequently ranges as high as 100 and
105in toie shade, and that, too, without
any breeze to relieve it ; whereas, it but
rarroly ranches as high 90 at, any of the
'1-tler places. I am credibly informed

treme South olFlorida) for fourteen years,

climate, diseases, &c.. of Florida, remarks:

*in anada, than it does along the coast
of Floyda. This is shown by meteorolog-
ical statistics in this Bureau."
The'sumtner in Plor-ida mayj be said to

"tiop, of warm weather is nearly twice as

Mers in East Florida, that there is but lit-
tle-'c0i)11 between themn and the winters;
and mfany of the oldest inhabitants say
that they prefer Elie former.
The, season in Florida are probably as
favorable as in any other State in the
Union, There' occur there. as in every
other "State, occasional droughts of too
Slollg.9tration, and there is sometimes a
sttip tindarce of rain ; but, as a general

One of the great virtues of the Florida cli-
mate".e, that nearly a0l the ram falls dur-
ing the productive season of the year;, and
that durin;, the winter months, when -rains
are but little required, they rarely fail.-
.,Ue reverse 9f this occurs in Texas, Cali-
fornia, Oregon, and in nearly all th.e Mexi-
can States.
As respects health, the climate of Flo.
rida stands pre-eminent. That the penin-
sular climate of Florida is much more salu-
brious than that of any other State in the
Union, is clearly established by the medi-
cal statistics of the army, as well as by the
last census returns. In proof of this the
most conclusive evidence call be present-
ed ; but it will be sufficient here to quote
a few remarks from the Report of the Sur-
geon-General- on this subject. General
LaWson states: 'Indeed, the statistics in
this Bureau demonstrate the fact that the
diseases which result from malaria are of a
vauch milder type in the Peninsular of
i0lorida than in any other State in the
IUnion. These records show that the ra-

of the United States. In the Middle Di-
vision of the United States the proportion
is one death to thirty-six cases of remit-
tent fever; in the Northern Division, one
to fifty-two; in the Southern Division, one
to fifty-four; in Texas, one to seventy-
eight ; in California, one to one hundred
and twenty-two; in New Mexico, one to 1
hundred and forty-eight; while in Florida
it it but one to two hundred and eighty
seven.
"The general healthfulness of many paits
of Florida. particulady on its coast, is pro-
verbial. The average annual mortality of
the whole Peninsular, derived from re-
turns in this office, is found to be 2.06 per
cent.. while of the other portions of the
U16ited States-previous to the war with
Mexico-it is 3.05 percentt"
In short, it may be asserted, without
fear of refutation, that Florida possesses a
much more agreeable and salubrious cli-
mate than any other State or Territory in
the Union, and that her seasons are more
favorable to the production of Cotton and
Sugar and Cotton than any other Southern
State.
Howdoes the climate of Texas compare
with that of Florida 7 Extensive as Texas
is, there is no portion of that vast State,
between the Sabine and Rio Grande, that
possesses a climate at all comparable with
that of Florida. The extremes of temper-
ature are much greater in every portion ol
Texas than in any portion of Florida. As
far North as the Sabine the mercury fre-
quently rises as high as 104 in the shade ;
as far South as Aransas Bay it frequently
falls so low as to freeze salt water and
kill the fish This latter phenomenon I
witnessed myself, In the winter of 1845-6,
when the whole margin of Aransas Bay
was fringed with thick ice.
But it is not merely as respects the ex-
tremes of temperature that the climate of
Texas is so much less desirable than that
of Florida. Texas is, by the regular and
frequent prevalence of Northers, afflicted
with a climatic curse which is entirely utn-
known in Florida. The se Northers which
may be regarded as a Texas "institution,"
are tremendous Northwest gales which
suddenly spring up, and sweep with un-
broken fury over vast prairies of the West,
then over Texas, and finally exhaust
themselves in the Gulf of Mexico. They
last, on the average, about sixteen hours.
and recur, on the average, about twice a
week. They-prevail at all seasons of the
year, so that they are an everlasting afflic-
tiot h Iii .winter they are felt as cold as
cold gales, which not unfrequently cause"
the mercury to fall forty degrees in half
an hour. In sumnier they are strong,
blustering, dry hot winds, which "parch
and destroy," after tho fashion of a "siro-
cco." In short, these Northers, as I said
before, are the curse of Texas ; for, were it
not for these, she would, notwithstanding
the great and sudden extremes of temper
ature, have a'n agreeable climate during
the sumnmr season, when for about six
months in succession, there falls no rain.
and the days are bright and cloudless.
As respocts health, the climate of Tex-
as, though far inferior to that of Florida, is"
probably on the whole much better than
the climate of several of the other Soqithern
States. The malarial diseases are not
generally of so grave a type as those which
prevail In Arkansas, Mississippi.and Lou-
i1iana.
It is scarcely necessary to say, that a
climate which is characterized by such
sutdden and great extremes of temperature
and afflicted by such frequent Nort[Lers,

ing. generally very fertile, whenever the
"season happens to hit" an enormous crop
can be made, But, so generally do the
seasons mifs, thlit one good crop out of
fW4 is about' the -averagfe resu t. Hence,
although we sometimes hear of verve large
crops beiftg iade in Texas', these are only
exceptions to the rule of 'lheir. failure, and
it is notorious that stock raising is much
more prbtital~e. than Flanting iu nearly
every portion of Texas. Indeed, the Mex-
icans wet'o, from loug experience, so well
convinced of the unreliable character ot
the seasons in Texas, that they resorted to
irrigation as the only means of obviating
the evil .
If the statements which I have here
made be correct--and I challenge their re-
futation-it must be admitted that Florida
presents to the emigrant three cardinal
advantages over "lexas, viz : A much more
salubrious and a much more agreeable
climate and seasons much more favorable
to agriculture.
In my next I shall discuss some other
matters relating to those States, which I
trust will prove~t-a~lto thogsgjyw-ttffend
to emigra~tt- frm their present homes. .

A SUGGESTION.
"To our brethern of the Florida Press
we would respectfully suggest that, by way
of courtesy, whenever advertisements oc-
curring in, one paper, are designed to be
copied by others, or another, that the pa-
per in which it originates shall mark the
samo in the copy. sent to, such! papers, or
paper. This will save to all, a great deal
of searching over the exchanges, and pre-
vent omissions of copying, which some-
times occur in spite of scrutiny."
[Jacksounille Standard.
The above suggestion is an excellent
one, and shall govern us (or the future.-
The adoption of the course recommended
by the Standard would save much trouble
and loss of time.

Two Men Killed!


J53E\Ve insert by request the follow-

LINES
On. the Death of Mrs. Mary 111ildenstein Rob-
ertson, the wife of the Rev. William H. C.
Robertson :
Our buds have-faded-winter's frigid breath
Sigh'd o'er their bosoms, and they fell away,
And in our household bov ers the ice of death
Bids rose and lily ere their prime decay,
And see-a paassion-flower from tropic skies
Beneath our drifted snows, not without requiem
lies.
A brilliant daughter of the Cuban vales,
Of generous mind, impulsive, strong and high,
Twined the home-tendril where our northern gales
Sweep grove and forest with their minstrelsy,
Bore in our classic domes a studious part,
And planted friendship'a germ in many a genial
heart.
Her filial piety, intensely warm,
Whose gushing tenderness no limit knew,
Clasp'd day and night a Mother's wasted form,
And o'er her falling powers protection threw,
Cheering the darken'd soul with comfort sweet,
And girding it anew, life's pang to meet.
Then came the sacred vow for good or ill,
The life-long study of another's joy,
The enraptured and unutterable thrill
With which a mother greets her first-born boy,
The climax of those hopes and duties dear
Which Heaven's Unerring Hand accords to wo-
man' sphere.
And then the scene was ended, and she found
What here her ardent nature vainly sought,
Unwithering flowers, and music's tuneful sound,
Without a shadow, or discordant thought,
And entered through a blest Redeemer's louir
The never-changing clime of perfect rest above.

Good friday.
It has not been ascertained at what time
the Church set apart this day for the con-
memoratiou of our Saviour's passion and
death, but it has been clearly shown that
these stupendous and awful facts were
celebrated at a very remote period. Tilere
is no fast or feast so thickly hung with
the moss of lime as this solemn anniversa-
ry. Its most ancient title was Holy Fri-
day; it was also called Long Friday, 'from
the length of the offices and fasting on that
day.'
Good Friday was considered a famous
day with the wrinkled and bloodless olid

THE CONN ECrICUT ELECTION 11
The election in Connecticut has termi.-
nated im favor of the Ab,.,lifbn or Black
Republican party. Much importanc& had
been attached to the result of this elec-
tion, as every effort had been put forth by
the Consqrvatives to rescue the Stale from
the dominion of their opponents. The
contest was warm and animated on both
sides. Every portion of the State was
thoroughly canvassed and flooded with
thousands of documents. Able speakers
harangued' the masses and money was
freely spent in the purchase of votes. De.,
mocratic papers foretold a victory, on the
ground of futile assertioni that public sen-
timent had undergone a change, and spoke
cheerfully of the numbers who would rally
to the music of the Union.. Where are
they ? Alas they only exist in imagina-
tion. New England is hopelessly and ir.
redeemably abolitionized, and will support
the nominee of that, panry. Maine and
Connecticut have raised the gloomy stand-
ard of Black Republicanism, and Vermont,
New Hampshire, Massachusetas an(" ,hode

HAIL STORM !
The good people of Fernandina witness-
ed more ice on the afternoon of the 5th
inst., than they have seen during the en-
enLt.ie-, past- Winter. The hail-stones
however, were not sufficiently large to
break window-'panes or perforate cabbage
leaves.
ARRIVED!
That long looked for cargo of ice. Our
friendsin the interior will be rejoiced to
learn that they can now obtain ample sup-
plies of this very desirable luxury, It
may be as well to mention in connection
with this subject, that the Editor is rather
partial to a dish of ice-cream, particularly
when prepared by the fair hands of---

Let Your Beard Grow.


In'Timothy "'itcomb's' letter to young
men, we'fnd the following, in reference to
man's hmriute appendage:
.'You find as you come into man's estate
that bair has a ten dency to grow upon
your face. It is the mark by which God
meant that men and women should be
distinguished from each other in a crowd.
Thatahair was placed thert.by infinite wis-
dom, but your fathers have been cutting
it off from their chins in small crops fur
thirty or fifty years, thus impugning na
lure's policy, wasting precious time, draw-
ing a great deal of good blood, creating a
great deal of'bad, and tryiug to ease from
their faces the difference that was intended-
to be maintained between them and women,
Ifyou are a man and have heard-wear it.
You know it was made to wear. it is
enough to make a man with a decent com-
pliment of information, and a common de-
gree of sensibility (and a handsome beard)
deny his kind, to see these smooth-faced
men around the street and actually show-
ing themselves in female society. Let us
have one generation of beards,'

W PROSPECTUS
OF THE
*" CHARLESTON MERCURY,
A Political, Commercial and Literary
Newspaper,
P Published Daily anwl T7 lleekly..

THE PRESENT IS A PERIOD OF UN-
US.UAL earnestness in political matters. The
raid of JSOiH BROWN, and the sympathy ac-
f coded: to hrim throughout the North, have opened
t tie _eyes 6f.,the Southern people to the dangers
tha menace their civilization, and have essen-
tially contributed to widen the breach betweenn
the ppetions of the Union. The Convention of
the'N"atiorial Democratic party, to sA it Charles-
-< ton in April. will determine the destiny of that
-great organization on an importnt occasion.
Frpt, its deliberations will be seen, whether it
lands true In rital constitutional rights of the
south where its strength exists; or whether, by
tacit corsent, yielding these to anti-slavery al-
lies at the North, whfte it is almost powerless,
it will seek official success, devoid of principle,
and fall before the condenimintion of a betrayed
South,'with a: Southern party rising from its dis-
organization. After the Convention will com-
mence the sectional struggle of the Presidential
election, which may turn the scale in favor of.
northern mastery in the Government, bringing
subjugation for the South beneath the sway of
the hostile majority. In a time so full of great
events und so pregnant with good or with evil for
the future, political principles become of grave
moment., and State politics are recognized as
topics of kc~p mi rest to all who are worthy the
anine of citizens " a confederated Republican
Government.
