What dues It Mean?
Wo published a dispatch in our last issue an
nouncing the fact that three Spanish and two
French ships of war bad anchored off the Island
of Sacrifices, at the entrance of the bay of “V era
Cruz. Considered by itself, this demonstration is
not devoid of significance. Nor is the conclusion
which wc would naturally derive from such astute
of things, relieved by a consideration of the rela
tions existing between the Spanish and Mexican
Governments. Through all the mutations of their
several fortunes, each preserves for the other a
deep-seated, unrelenting hostility. A remem
brance of his former wrongs—nurses the hatred of
the Mexican for his anc;ent oppressor, while
Spain, decrepid, degenerate and demoralized
though she be, with hardly vigor enough to wield
the sceptre over her greatly circumscribed domin
ions, indulges an unprofitable, yet unappeasable
ambition for dominion over her once rich and
flourishing colony. Nor can it be doubted that
she has ample cause for quarrel and for demand
of satisfaction train tlmt >/Lul wmnlu IrwW/1
if stao had not, her case would bo an exception
from the condition of all other nations who have
endeavored to maintain commercial relations with
Mexico. She is in debt to everybody, she has
infracted the rights ofevery people, and the politi
cal convulsions to which s'uo seems doomed,have so
exhausted her resources, and reduced her finances
to such a state of depletion, that she is lclt without
the means of payment of the one or of reparation
for the other. Yet, we cannot think that Spain
intends more than a threat by her present attitude.
She must he satisfied that this Government will
notallow her, or any other power, for any consid
eration, tq, obtain a foot-hold upon the Gull, ihc
United States must in time, inevitably succeed the
miserable factions which sway the destinies of our
tawny neighbors. Spain, too, knows tull well,
that she holds Cuba by sufferance of us, and that
a rupture of peaceful relations with this Govern
ment would imperil her title to the Queen of the
Antilles. If, however, her valor should override
her discretion, if emboldened by the promised aid
of France and England, .she should practically
contravene and assail the long-enunciated policy
of the United States, we shall have a fine time in
Gulf this winter, and when the smoke of the con
flict clears away, Jonathan will be found sitting
cross-legged in his Cuban Hacienda, luxuriating
in the fumes of his royal Cabanos. The game is
increasing in interest.
The Cass Herran peaty.
Tho treaty negotiated between General Cass
and Senor Herran, for the settlement of the ques
tions growing out of the Panama outrage, says
the Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia
North American, will be submitted to the Senate
for ratification, in the form in which it was amend
ed by New Granada. The Minister addressed an
explanatory letter to the Government, which re
lieves the modifications of their objectionable fea
tures; and meantime New Granada has agreed to
suspend the collection of t l, e onerous tolls claimed
to be imposed on the mail and other matter pass
ing over the Isthmus. In fact, the officers of our
squadron liave boon inutruototl, in tin- last, reeorr,
to resist these levies by force, should they be at
tempted. So that ihc New Granada difficulty,
which has first and last so much exercised the
public mind, may bo regarded as definitely settled,
and the President will inform the country of that
fact in bis annual message.

President of the Senate.
We published on yesterday, the beautiful little
address of the lion. John E. Ward, delivered upon
■ the occasion of resigning the presidency of the
Senate, on last Saturday morning. In the after
noon of the same day an election was held for
| that office.
The following gentlemen were nominated :
Guerry, of Randolph, Ward of Butts, Whitaker, of
Fulton, Cone, of Bullock, Thomas, of Gwinnett
and Colquitt, of Muscogee.
Mr. Colquitt declined the nomination : He said,
with great deference to tho honorable Senator
from the county of Union, who had announced
his name, that he must withhold the use of it, in
connection with the office of Presidency of the
Senate. He was not insensible of the high honor
sought to be conferred upon him by many warm
and enthusiastic friends of this body, nor was he
ungrateful for this expression of their partiality,
but when he looked around the Senate Chamber,
and bebeW so many more worthy of the position
than himself, so many more entitled to it by vir
iue of their long service and experience and wis
dom, he would violate his own sense of propriety
were ho to struggle for the honor attendant upon
success in the contest.
He was stili young—life was before him, and
the bow of promise was yet painted in the horizon
of his future, but there were those around him,
the sun of whose years was setting beyond the
western bills, whose names were inscribed up* n
the pages of the proceedings of the Senate, ere the
light of Heaven ever shone upon bis ‘ ttl ‘”
were emiuenuy nt lor the honorable position to
which he had been nominated, and who should be
elected. A choice could be made from those
names which had been announced. As for him
self his highest ambition and aspirations were to
serve faithfully the constituency whom ho had the
honor to represent, so that when he returned
home, having occupied a seat upon that floor the
first and perhaps the last time, he could receive
from them the plaudit of “well done, thou good
and faithful servant.”
The balloting was then entered into. On the first
ba’lot, Mr. Guerry received 43 votes, Whitaker 5;
Cone 12, Ward, of Butts, 14, Thomas 28.
The second ballot was as follows-: Guerry 51,
Whitaker 6, Cone 8, Ward, of Butts, 11, Thomas
23. So the Hon. T. L. Guerry was declared duly
elected President of the Senate.
Mr. Colquitt moved that a committee of three
be appointed to conduct Mr. Guerry to the Chair —
That committee were Messrs. Colquitt, Hill, of
Harris, and Tucker.
On taking the Chair, Mr. Guerry thanked the
Senate for the honor conferred.
On motion the Senate adjourned until 9%
o’clock, A. M., Monday morning.
Davis vs. Douglas.
Senator Davis, in a speech recently delivered by
him before the Legislature of Mississippi, repudi
ates in the following manner the doctrine of
Squatter Sovereignty” which he was represented
by Senator Douglas, in his late contest in Illinois,
I have been represented as having advocated
“Squatter Sovereignty” in a speech made at Ban
gor in the State of Maine. A paragraph has been
published purporting to be an extract from that
speech, and vituperative criticism, and forced
construction have exhausted themselves upon it,
with deductions which arc considered authorized,
because they are not denied in the paragraph pub
In this case, as in that of the charge in relation
to my position in 1552,’ there is no record with
which to answer. 1 never made a speech at Ban

Senator Douglas, in a speech at Alton, adopt
ing the paragraph published, and evidently draw
ing his opinion from the unfair construction which
bad bet II put llpOlL - Quote from
h made toy me at Bangor, to sustain the po
sition taken by him at Freeport. He says :
“You will find in a recent speech, delivered by
that able and eloquent statesman, Hon. Jefferson
Davis, at Bangor, Me., that he took tho same view
of this subject that I did in my Freeport speech.
He there said :”
“ ‘lf the inhabitants of any territory should re
fuse to cuaet such laws and police regulations as
would give security to their property and his, it
would be rendered more or less valueless, iu pro
portion to the difficulty of holding it without such
protection. In tho case of property, in the labor
of man, or what is usually called slave prop
erty, the insecurity would be so great that the
owner could not ordinarily retain it. Therefore,
though the right would remain, the remedy being
withheld, it would follow that the owner would be
practically debarred, by the circumstances of the
case, trom taking slave property into a territory
where the sense of the inhabitants was opposed to
its introduction. So much for the oft repeated
fallacy of forcing slavery upon any community.’ ”
It is fair to suppose, if the Senator had known
where to find the speech from which this extract
was taken, that he would have examined it before
proceeding to make use of it. And I can but be
lieve, it he had taken the paragraph free from the
d.stortion which it had undergone from others,
that he must have seen it bore no similitude to
his position at 1- reeport, and could give no coun
tenance to the doctrine he then announced. He
“The next question Mr. Lincoln propounded to
me is, ‘Can the people of a territory exclude slave

comes into the Union as a State?” .1 answer em
phatically, as Mr. Lincoln has hear 1 me answer a
hundred times, on every stump in Illinois that in
my opinion, the people of.* territory, can, by law
tul means, exclude slavery before it comes in as a
Staie. [(,beers] Mr. Lincoln knew thatlhad given
ihutanswer over and over again. He heard me argue
the Nebraska bill on that principle all over the
titute, iu 1851, and 55, and 56, and he has now no
excuse to pretend to have any doubt upon that
subject. W hatever the Supreme Court mavhere
alicr decide as to the abstract question of whether
slavery may go iu under the Constitution or not,
tho people of a territc ry have the lawful means to
admit or exclude it as they ] lease, for the reato i
that slavery cannot exist it day or an hour anv

regulations can only be furnished by the local
Legislature. If ihe people of the territory are op
posed to slavery they will elect members to the
Legislature who wi.l adopt unfriendly legislation
to it. It they are for it. they will adopt the legis
lative measures friendly to slavery.
matter what may be the decision of the Supreme
Court on the abstract question, still the right of
the people to make it a slave territory, is perfect
and complete under the Nebraska bill. 1 hope j
Mr. Lincoln will deem my answer satisfactory on
this point.” ~ .
Tms is the distinct assertion of the power of a
territorial legislature to admit or exclude slavery:
ol’ the first in the race of migration who reach* a
territory, the common property of the people of I
the United States to enact laws for the exclusion i
of other joint owners of the territory, who may iu !
the exercise of their equal right to enter the com- !
nion property, choose to take with them propertv
recognised by the Constitution, but not acceptable
to the first emigrants to the territory. That Sena
tor had too often and too fully discussed with me
the question of “squatter sovereignty” to be jus
tified in thus mistaking my opinion. The differ
ence between us is as wide as that of one who
snovuu assert the right to rob from him who ad- I
mi ted the power. It is true, as I stated it at that i

I stated it, that slave property peculiarly requires |
the protec ion of society and would ordinarily be- j

would seek to seduce the slave from his master, I

protect each other in any suit which the master
might bring for damages. The laws of the Uni
ted States, through the courts of the United
States, might enable the master to recover the
slave wherever be could find him. But you all
know, in such a community as I have supposed,
that a slave inclined to abscond would become ut
terly useless and that was the extent of the ad- j
Revision of the Tariff.
Some of the papers andpolUiqps are, we per
ceive, agitating the question ofToe revision of the
Tariff, and it is said that Mr. Cobh will in his
Report recommend that a duty shall be imposed !
upon Tea, Coffee, and perhaps other articles now j
; on the free list, while Mr. Buchanan will probably, !
in his Message, recommend an increase ofthedu- j
ties on iron.
There is no need for any of it. In the first
! place, before Congress can act upon it, there will
j be evidence that the present tariff will raise money
enough even for the extravagancies of the govern
ment; but if this should net be so, there is amuch
better plan to be adopted, and that is to curtail
expenses. There are many millions of dollars of
the expenses of the government which might be
cut oft', and ought to be, even if the government
had the money to pay them. Stop the appro
priations for internal improvements ; reduce the
array, reduce salaries—any thing but irnposo ad
ditional burthens upon the people.
This shows the insidious and dangerous charac
ter of this mode of raising revenue. The people
have been compelled to retrench and economise,
and by reason of it they have paid less to the
government than when they were extravagant.
Why should not the officials of government re
trench and economise too ? There is now no ex
cuse for the expenditure of so much money. Pro
visions of every kind are low and the expenses of
living have greatly diminished ; let their salaries
If the revenues were collected by direct taxation
who would think now of proposing to increase the
taxes ? No body. So far from it every body
would go for a reduction of the taxes. Not so
with this system ; the L-os people are able to buy
the more they mu pay for them. Then we say.
let us hear no mo- . about increasing the tariff—
reduce the exp- tses, and reduce the tariff too.

government ought to spend. —Corner Stone.

The United States in Central America—The British
Fleet (o Aid Martinez Against Walker.
Every information which reaches this country
from Central America appears strongly to confirm
the opinion which many people in England and
in the Uuited States have never hesitated to ex
press, that the descendants of the Spaniards in
the New World have proved themselves to be total
ly unworthy of those privileges of self-government
which, for nearly a century—in theory, at least—
they have professed to exercise. The same obser
vation, with still greater truth, may be applied to
the existing condition of affairs in the neighbor
ing republic of Mexico—a State the civilization of
which has so far retrograded that the aboriginal
institutions which Cortez and his followers sub
verted may be said to have presented more the
form and substance of settled government than the
wholesale and long-continued system of brigand
age which prevails in every part of Mexican ter
ritory. To Europe, the spectacle of a people the
constant victims of successive revolutions—at one
time clamoring for an Emperor, as in the case of
Tturbide and Wanta Anna, and at the next incon
sistently joining the standard of the first adventu
rer who has the courage to “pronounce” for change,
careless whether that’ change involve the restora
tion or ihe downfall of the power of the priest
hood, the one great point of Mexican politics—to
Europe, we say, such a spectacle must ever be
fraught with feelings of deep and permanent re
gret. The people of the United States, however,
have shown a very different appreciation of the
condition of Mexico. By the comparatively quiet,
but wholly dishonorable, course of annexation,
Texas first fell into their greedy grasp, and more
recently California, one of the richest countries in
the world, has by force of conquest become an in
tegral portion of the great North American repub
lic. It hardly can be said, even it Mexico
tosa left, -jitvae—r na powerful and aggressive
neighbor, that its inhabitants would have firmly
and steadily pursued those paths of peace and do
mestic improvement which lead to national great
ness and to national prosperity.
That Texas and California, under the rule of
the United States, are infinitely better governed
than any portions of Mexico is a proposition
which cannot with justice be disputed; and
though Europe generally would view with some
surprise the practical enforcement of the Monroe
doctrine to an extent- which would confer upon
the United States absolute and uncontrolled do
minion over so valuable a territory as that which
still belongs to Mexico, yet the change would no
doubt contribute directly and largely to the bene
fit of the Mexicans themselves, and to the securi
ty of all strangers who reside in that part of the
world. Recent accounts disclose a state of anar
chy which has never been exceeded in the most
barbarous countries. Insurrection, bloodshed,
forced loans, confiscation of property, mark the
progress of every adventurer who obtains a tem
porary triumph. So long as these outrages were
confined to Mexican citizens neither England nor
any other power had a right to interfere ; but
British subjects have been exposed to brutal in
sult—they have been imprisoned, their property
has been confiscated, they have been compelled
to pay ransom, and tho authority of the British
Consul and s the protection of tho'British flag have
i been claimed and exercised in vain. Full and
adequate reparation for these flagrant violations
of public law must promptly be ei.forced ; but if
every Mexican town on the seaboard were bom
barded internal anarchy might still reign su
preme, and no real security would be afforded
that the government would either have the incli
nation or the power to prevent the occurrence of
such outrages. We have stated the case simply
as it is. England, no doubt, will obtain effectual
redress; but stiil there will remain those elements
of disorganization and utter feebleness which
hitaerto have rendered Mexico a disgrace and a
nuisance to the c nnnuuiiy of civilized nations.

We are informed from Washington that he is “well

has at length been signed, and that the British i
admiral on the West India station has very prop- j
erly rece.ved orders to act against Walker and his j
confederates should President Martinez demand \
his assistance. Under these circumstances, we j
cave a very confident belief that the demand will
be made, that the assistance Jof the British admi
ral will be efficiently afforded, and that Walker
will be taught the useful lesson that private war
fare upon land can no more be tolerated than pi
racy upon the sea.

Four Overland Routes to the Pacific
One feature of Mr. Buchanan’s policy is of un
impeachable popularity. This is the establish
ment of a set of continental mail routes —not a
single one, but several of them—through our own
territory to the Pacific. Each of these lines is not
only a happy & enduring bond of inter-State har
mony, but it is the cheapest and surest means of
Indian repression. Every regularly traveled route
is equal to a series of forts, aud are ten times as
valuable, and may be had at a twentieth the out
lay of a regular military post.
Of the four overland routes now settled upon the

A Boy’s Trials.
The Springfield Republican has a capital artic
le on this subject. Here are some extracts :
HIS REGULATIONS WITH THE “OLD MAN.”
We suppose that the first severe trial a boy has
to undergo is to submit his will to the old man,
whom he is taught to consider his father. To be
restrained in doors at night, to be forbidden to go
in swimming five times a day, or to be hindered
from pinching the rest of the children just for fun,
is an interference with natural inalienable rights,
every way injurious to the feelings. And then,
when upon some overwhelming temptation, the
boy asserts his independence of parental control,
and receives a “tanning” with a switch from a
quince bush, either upon his back or his bare feet,
it becomes really a very serious thing. We never
oouid occ cxiUit thv ouuin ur an operation iiKo this
was at all assuaged by the affectionate assurance
that it was bestowed out of pure love.
SITTING WITH THE GIRLS.
The next great trial of that boy is to be obliged
by a cruel master to sit with the girls at school.
This usually comes before the development of
those undeniable affinities which, in after life,
would tend to make the punishment more endura
ble. To be pointed out as a “gal boy,” to be smil
ed at grimly by the master, who is so far deligh
ted with his own ineffable pleasantry as to give
tho little boys license to laugh aloud, and to be
placed by the side of a girl who had no handker
chief, and no knowledge of the use of that article,
j is, we submit, a trial of no mean magnitude. Yet
we have been there, and havo been obliged to “sit
up close” with big Rachel, laughing aud blushing
till we came to bate her name. We wonder where
the overgrown frowzy creature is now, and what
I the condition of her head is !
THE FIRST LONG TAILED COAT.
We do not believe that any boy ever put on his
long tailed coat without a sense of shame. He
first twists his back half off - looking at it in the
glass, and then when he steps out of doors it seems
to him as if all creation was in a broad grin. The
sun laughs in the sky ; the cows turn to look at
him ; there are faces at every window ; his shad
dow mocks him. When he walks by the cottage
where Jane lives, he dares not look up for his life.
: The very boards creak with consciousness of the
strange spectacle, and the old pair of pantaloons
that stop a light in the garr t wind >w njd wiih
derision. If he is obliged to pass a group of men
and boys, the trial assumes its most terrific sta&e.
Ilis legs get all mixed up with embarrassment,
and the flap of the dangling appendage is felt
upon them, moved by the wind of his own agita
| tion; he could not feel worse were it a dishcloth
worn as a badge of disgrace. It is a happy time
j for him when he gets to the church and sits down
with his coat tails under him ; but he is still ap
prehensive with thinking of the Sunday school
and wonders if any of the children will ask him
to “swing his long tail blue.”

like derangement of tho stomach, to state, thßt
the use of oue single bottle of this medicine proved
of incalculable benefit, having freed tho stomach
from all sense of depression, and removed every
symptom of dyspepsia. I would also remark,
that two other mouthers of ray family, who were
afflicted in a similar manner w ith myself, were en
tirely relieved by the use of a single bottle each.

• WOOD’S HAIR RESTORATIVE.
This Restorative for making the hair grow,
stopping its falling out, restoring gray hair to its
original color, is becoming more celebrated. All
the quack nostrums are giving way before it.
Three fourths of the mixtures for restoring and
beautifying the hair, do it more injury than good.
They burn it up, destroy tho life at its rootsjmake
the hair fall off, and produce premature baldness.
But Prof. Wood’s Restorative may be relied upou
as containing nothing which can in any manner
be injurious to the hair, while its success in ac
complishing what it pretends to do, has been ver
ified in hundreds of cases. We advise gray heads
and heads getting bald, all who wish to save their
wool or obtain anew stock, to get a bottle of Prof.
Wood’s Hair Restorative. — N. Y. Democrat.
Sold by all Druggists in this city, and by deal

The Great Premium Disinfectant I
A MAGNIFICENT PITCHER was awarded it at
the Alabama State Fair at the recommendation of
a special scientific committee, who pronounced it supe
perior to any similar agent now in use. Besides its
strictly disinfecting uses, it may he most advantageous
ly applied as a therapeutic agent in the follow ing cases:
All putrid diseases, salivation, sores, ulcers, burns,
fresh wounds, removing stains, destroying bad breath,
curing stings, softening and whitening the skin in bath
ing, and especially in limestone countries, where the
water is hard, in making it soft, by pouring a few drops
into a basin full of water. Read what is said of it:
You would confer a general good by using means for
its general introduction and use— More than fifty citizens
of J-z. burn.
The best and most efficient preventative of conta
gious diseases now in use.— Auburn Oazet.e.
We advise our friends to try it, by ail means—Mont
No one who has used it once will consent to do
without it.— I’vskegee Republican.

were it not the case. Southern Christian Advocate.
It is a most effective and powerful combination. It
should be used everywhere. It will not disappoint you
as a disinfecting agent. Holmes Steele, M. D.
