From the Columbia i rtc Press ancl Hive. STATE RIGHT BALL. Tne grand drama is over—the State Right Call in ' Charleston, a pageant which every irn.i uf aou:;.l political morality-mug! contem plate with imnu of disgust limit approbation. At thi* *' entertainment something liko di vine hocurs wero alir.ven to bis Excellency by u few minions of power At is, tho las-! ions of patriotism that worn exemplified by «ta fathers of 1'ui snbr day* in Charleston, havo boen forgotten by some of tltoir descondnuts. They aio scckm* after strange gods, that their fathers know not. The shepherd lias dcpartod.from Israel, and the -people have erected a V olden Call' as the object of wor- • ll! p. Tins spirit of tho political revolution of 1800, once shed its Jight over the people of tli*t,ciiy, 80 famed in the leviilii iouary story for its pat riotism. But a new generation notv occupies tile theatre of uciion. Are the people of Ch alesion doomed tolse led lilto die servilo minions of a despot by u few designing and reckte-s politicians! Little more than half a dozen winter snows havo whitened, the mtum tains, since Governor Hamilton, with Mr. Hiyttb and ifco Prtteeu Editor of the Mercu ry enlisted the citizens of Charleston in an un holy political crusade against Judge Smith, avowedly ou the ground of his Stute Right doc trines. . They Were then die loud and clamorous ad vocates of (lie splendid system of linern d Iini provenient, Hie favorilo political bantling of Mir. Calliouii; lint was nursed into i rtion with So much paimr. il care by Mr. M Doffi - inihe House of Ropioseinaiivus, and Mr. Hay lie in the Senate. They wero enthusiastic suppur tors of this scheme of robbery of tho South; this most odious branch of the American sys tem. Judge Smith unmasked these political he retics.. He brought public opinion to bear on them through the Legislature of the stale with no much power, that they were driven from their unholy doctrines—a sudden light shoue On their benighted understandings. Behold- a miracle! Governor Hamilton, a gentleman of the most profound erudition, who hid been engaged in political lifo, and aihgted with tho first polinciuns of diis nation for tho greater portion of the days of his man- IiojiI; who had served in the great councils ot the nation, during the period when the two branches of the American System (the Tariff and internal Improvement} underwent th< most thorough discussion till Constitutional grounds by tho first meu of this nation; when the great republican leaders of.tlto Jeffersoni an school brought all tlm powers of their migh ty minds into action against the system: Gov enter Hamilton, whilst all this light wus'shm around him, remained in utter darknoss. Aim never did the light of truth burst oil his benigh t'd mind; till the people of this state proclaim ed more tiian once from their legislative hull, in a voice loud and commanding, the semenc* of,condemnation, against the unholy doctrine.- that lie had been sustaining with so much zeal. This produced the miraculous conversin'- of Governor Hamilton and his coadjutors, Messrs, H tyne -and Pinckney of the Mercu- ry. Governor Hamilton drew largely on the cre dulity of the good people of Charleston, wltoi- ho proclaimed that ho lud labored unt'er natural delusion,” and that the light of iruih for the first timo hurst on his understanding.— Pooplo of Charleston, this “trio” once led through mires and quicksands, to.tlio political sacrifice of the man who was engaged in the glorious strife of bringing this stato back to (In good old doctriuus of the republican iarnily ol 1800. Li a succession of numbers written by Mr. Pinckney, under i ho signature of “A Rppun- licau," and published in the City Gazette, in 1825, this Protean politician assailed Judge Smith for his opposition to the splendid schemes of Internal Improvement by the General Gov ernment. In hisspeoch before the Clariosophic. Socie ty, in the same year, this same Proteus of the Mercury delivered the most splendid encomi ums ou lito system of Iiiieruul Improvement mid of Domestic Munufnciutes. Tito conversion of these men to tho true political faith, proves that the mind of Judge Smith was clear and luminous, whilst theirs wero clouded and benighted. It proves that Judge Smith was jight—whilst they were all wrong. They h ive, however, never forgiven him 'or removing the scules from ihnir eyes.— To y h .to him will) die more mietucness, be cause no brought them from darkness to light. On whose understanding ought you now to rely! On iheso now converts to .he failh,(if thoy in truth aro really converted) or on he judgment of the Political Patriarch, whoso understanding was uevor misled by false lights: The man whom the Richmond Enquirer (die oracle of die republican Family ol Virginia) de clares "never has heeu wrong on a great Con stitutional question. ” " Are you again to be led away by the extrav agant and wild doctrines of dio “irio” tlmi lod you astray in former days! Are you to bloto hoi and cold at tho bidding of Messrs. Hamil ton, Hiyucand Pinckney! Are they the ora cles that uroto mislead you feiever! Are your Senses to be captivated by a splendid pageant! %i Thc State Right Dull." To whom given, and who moved die secret wires of this dra matic exhibition! The answer is plain. Moil, who but the other day proscribed die doctriuo of Stale Rights, and denounced with political vengeance, the man who endeavored to impress it on this state as tho true political faith of the south. The -violence of theso ever changing politi cians have done inconceivable harm to the Cause of reform at Wiisliiugtou. It is deeply Jell and lamented by the politicians of the whole south, whose imerast is identified with our Own—that the people of the onlightened city of Charleston shall fly from ono extreme of politics In the other at tho bidding of a few wild and inconsistent politicians, must he a matter of wonder and regret to the wise and vir tuous throughout this union. But thanks are doe to the God of nations, thatfbere '* yet a goodly number uf the inhab itant! of the city, that view this subject with tho Dyes Oi'-jrhxloin, aid who have not yet bowed down their understandings hoforo this unholy alliance. Chester, 19/A March, 1331 The Washington Globe, the organ of what. boon brought forward in Piiiliameiit on the 1st is called tho “Jackson Van Buren party,” has I March, by Lou! John Russell, with the unun- '.ow taken n decided stand against the propos- imous approbation ol jbe Government. Al- terous doctrines of Nullification. We. copy tho annexed paragraphs from that print, iu.ex emplification:-— “We liavo seen enough of privnto letters and public papers to satisfy us, that Mr. Calhoun’s ill-advised attempt to bring bis private quar rels imo tho political discussions of the country, has utterly destroyed all chances for his polit ical advancement, which his "nullification" ha left. “Tho nullification party unite in tho scheme of the Coalitiou, and strivo io persuade the peo- plo that they do not assail the President, bu those to whose arts they pretend he is a victim. They would havo us to believe that he is un der control, becauso they found on a memorabh occasion, that no artifice could deceive him, nor any influence swervo him from the great cause of tho country, and induce him to give his countenance to the interested schemes of partisans, however they might profess devu- tiou to himself. The public havo. not forgot ten the celerbrated Nullifying Dinner got up under* iho protenee of commemorating the principles of the patriot Jcflerson, and 10 which tho patriot Jackson was invited to lend the sanction of his presence. Toasts and speech es wero prepared to recommend tho new .doc- irines to which the Vico President had com mitted himself in tho South, and they were so artfully disguised in the garb of Stato Rights, that it was supposed, amidst the oiithusiasiu and applause of surrounding friends, the President from sympathy,.would catch (ho contagion, uud unite in procl iniing the principles of Nullifica tion, or in other woids, the-right of ono State to dissolve tho Union. A copy of tho toasts were placed at tho plote of tbo President,'that lie might be prepared to join in the spirit of the proceeding; but □<> sootier had ho run his eye over tho paper than he endorsed oil the back of it his own commentary, and put his veto up on it. This was like the night attack on the ( enemy, on tho twenty-third of December.-— He rebuked, at once, tho politicians who sought to entrap him, through thu consenting feelings natural to such nil occasion, by his premptory oust—-“ The Federal Union mutt bepreserv- d." From that moment Mr. Calhoun felt hat his principles wore out offavor; and lie esolved to tnko the ground that the President was the “victim of political intriguers," when '■e found him superior to all intriguers. He liiund that no (littery nor management on tho iart of hi itself and his friends, could bund the loblc-minded and single-hearted patriot, to givo he weight of his character and station to the losigh of artful and ambitious partizans, and ho i ts sought, through every avenue, to destroy iiat influence which he could not propitiato to 'is purpose.

G._A. VV ORTH, Gastiltr. tlc , you. We. City Bank, New York, March 21,1831. LATE FROM ENGLAND. Charleston, March 26. By the British barque Mary Catherine, arri ved at this port last evening from Liverpool, whence she sailed on tho 14th February, we <i ivo received London papers of the evening of lie 12th, and Liverpool papers of the morning d' the 14lh ult. Maticis appear to bo quite unsettled on the 'eminent. The Duke do Nemours, second ion of Philip King of lito French, had been ■Iecicd King of Belgium, but the French Gov- ■itmiem have rejected the offer, thus throwing nek on- thu Belgian Congress the question winch they supposed was settled. Tho place was not filled at our latest dates The British Parliament assembled oh the 3d ii February. Tho Chancellor of tho Exchequer has pro posed to Parliament to lay a duty of ono pen- ly pet pound onuli raw Cottons imported, with i drawback duty to tho same amount on all manufactured Colton exported. , In-conso- qdciica of this proposition, it will be seen by - eference to let tors under the commercial head of this morniug’s Courier, that the raw article had advanced 3-6d. in the Liverpool market, As letter writers have given different con structions of the intention of the British Gov- vommeut on this subject, we copy below the I uiguage used on the occasion in tile Houso of Commons, by tho Chancellor of the Excheq- ui'i, as reported in thu London Courier.— Whether a pcuuy per pound is intended to be dm whole duty, or so much in addition to the six per cent, now le-'ied, we leave to our rea ders to determine. In Committee oflhe Whole oftho Huusj of Commons, Feb. 11, the Chancellor of the Ex chequer said: “The next tax he was about to propose was one to winch ho anticipated objections, which objections would Imwover, be counterbalanced oy the advantages. Ii would be objected, lie expected, that a went to impose a new tax on jrnn of ourstuple manufactures, and would, be sides, be attended, by the inconveniences con sequent upon a drawback duty. He admitted, lie repeated, that these were objections; but besides his unwillingness to ta'mpor with a sta ple commodity by imposing a new lax upon it. the sum would be small, and only intended to meoithe loss which tho reduction of the duly uu the same article in another form would oc casion. The committee was aware, that by re ducing tho lux on printed Cottons, those con sumed by the poorer classes, there would be a loss to the annual revenue uf £500,000; and they were also uwaru that the ground of that reduction was, that the tax fell more particu- lurly ou the less wealthy classes. (Hear, hear.) Now he proposed to throw the tax over nil tho consumers of cotton, instead of one part, us tho duty®nt present pressed—(Hoar)—and thus save the revenue, und relievo iho poor consu mer of (lie article. (Hear.) This would be accomplished by a duly of Id. per pound on all raw couons imported, with a drawback duty to tha same amount on all manufactured cotfun exported. Ho had admitted (He objections to this drawback duly, and to the tax no the raw material of industry, but put to tlm Comroittoe whether the advantages, on the other hand, did not more than counterbalance ' (he objections. (Hear.) H" would take tbo revenue to bo thus derived si £500,000, judging by the average impoit of cotton for the last-few voars. The ; mport the last year of all was 179,200,000 lbs.; hut he would lake the average of tho preceding years—namely, 119,500,000 lbs. which at Id. per lb. would produce £497,000—that is to say £500,006 in round numbers." cy of the cause in unfavorable times. . r - (he - Thete were 191 oiombers present, absuluio Majority 96. For the Duke of Nemours 89; Hukoof Louchtenborg 675 Archduke Churlc- 35. None oflhe Candida os having tho major- y required, a second ballot was made, when >f 192 voies, the Duke of Nemoms had 97; iro Duke of Lcuchtenberg 74; aud Archduke Charles 21. .... Tho Duko of Nemours having the absolute majority of votes, the President prnclaime- Louis Charles Philip de Orleans, Duko oi Ncmouis, King ol the Belgians, Tho President then read tho decree of proc lamation, declaring the Duke King, on condi tion of his accepting the Constitution, and ta king the following oath:—“I swear to obsorve die Constitution and laws of the Belgian people, to mnniain the national Independence, and the integrity of tho teritory.” (Long and loud acclamations proceeded from the galleries and all parts of the ball, und wero repeated by the ciowd outside.) T.he cvem was announced to iho citizens by proclamations from the Provisional Govern ment, and from the Burgomaster, and by sa lutes of artillery. The London Courier of tho 12th February, publishes, in a second edition, an important communication from its Brussels correspondent, dated Wednesday night, which states, that n protocol from tho Congress of London, dated the 7ih uh. had been communicated to the Pro visional Government that evening; and that it not only declared, that the Fruucli Govern ment is resolved to reject the offer oflhe crown of Belgium fur the Duko of JMomuur*, but that it adheres to tho protocol of the 2(Mi January, and consequently disavows the letter of Count Sebustiuni. It further states, that, in the event uf the Duko of Leuclileuberg being again pro- C osed and elected, lie will not bo recognized y any of the flvo powors. Thu samo corres pondent, in a letter dated Thuisday dVening, states, that M. Bresson, tbo French Minister, had declined to sign a note sent to tho Provis ional Government with tho ubovo protocol, and that tho diplomatic commission had refused to lay the document before Congress, having re turned it to Lord Ponsonhyl There appears to itave been no regular figh ting between the Russians and Pules. A few trifling skirmishes had taken place, which were altogether offensive on tho part of the Poles, they havo mado incursions into tho Russian territory. It is said in tho English papers, that if thu duty on newspaper stamps und advertisements should be reduced, as proposed by the Chan cellor of tho Exchequer, newspajiers will bo sold at sixpence instead of sevenpence, and short advertisements will be inserted for four shil lings instead of, as now', six shillings and six pence. It is stated'i&‘ it London paper of the 12th February that policies havo been taken -at Lloyds' in which £5 is given, to rccciyo £20; if a declaration of war shall be made by the 5th of April.

Mr. O’Connell and the other traversers have, it will be seen by the intelligence which we insert in another column, pleaded guilty to the fourteen first counts of the indictment which had been preferred ugainst them.

Most Extensive Robbery.—Tho City Bank, in t.his city, was ontered with false keys between Saturday night and Monday morning, nnd the vault! robbed of upwards of two hundred thou sand dollars, all in bank notes, except 200 doubloons.
