the exclusive power to judge ofthe “elections, re

is no appeal. We presume, however, that a Black

Death of Col. Harper.
It 18 with pain that we have to announce the
death of Col. Win. 11. Harper, an old and esteem
ed friend. He died in his room at the Ogle
thorpe House, after an illness of long duration,
which, though it did not continually confine him
to his room, had exhibited for some time a chronic
obstinacy that prevented his friends indulging
hopes of his recovery. His complaint was chronic
diarrhoea of a complicated natuio.
Col. H. had been a resident of Columbus ever
since it could he called a city, and always enjoyed
the confidence and respect of our citizens, which
was his due as well on account of his integrity as
an extensive business man. as t>v his engaging
social qualities, sound judgment and varied in for
mation. Many circles have long lamented his
absence on account of ill health, and will now sin
cerely regret that he is lost to them forever on
this earth. — Enquirer.

FOR THE TIMES.
Opelika, Ala., )
November 29th, 1858. j
Messrs. Editors: I am a traveler, and in justice
to the accommodation and convenience of the
traveling public, allow me a line in your paper.
To passengers going West, this is llic regular
breakfast and supper house, and dinner to those
traveling East, (and not Columbus, as many erro
neously supposs) and yet, time is not given to the
hungry traveler to appease his appetite, although
sufficient, ample time is allowed by the schedule,
even to a Falstaff engineer. Why is it ? Let the
“knowing ones” answer ; this matter should be
rectified and at once, for not only is it an imposi
tion, a physical derangement, and mental annoy
ance to the traveler, who arrives here “hungry as
a wolf,” but it is a sore inconvenience and loss to
our good host Sledge, who makes abundant pre
parations and gives good Aire.
This place has had a bad name and deservedly
so, but as a passer-by. I cannot but notice the
great improvements since my last visit, both in
business and morals; formerly it was the resort of
many low, vulgar and degraded characters—hap
py the reform since that day, in the public morals,
dignity and of its people ; now there arc several
schools and churches under bright and happy !
auspices, good stocks of groceries, dry goods and
drugs, several new brick stores and elegant resi
dences are being erected, the improvements are
not springing up like a mushroom,but are gradual, 1
onward, occurring as the wants and necessities of
the people demand, and who knows but on my
next \ isit. I may sec Opelika ranked among cities, i
I will, in my travels, drop you a line occasionally, j
and m.i\ again have to revert to impositions, ;
which I think it is due the traveling community j

Horace Bell, ’whose and imprisonment

The Inlied Mates and Mexico.
One of the most important subjects on which
the National Legislature will have to deliberate
at their approaching session, and to which t ien
attention will doubtless be drawn by .he l resi
dent in bis annual Message, is the state oi our re ;
lotion® with Mexico. „ !
‘ Were there anything approaching to a respon
sible government in that country, or-were there
any reasonable probability of the establishment
of a government there which would possess any ol
the attributes of stability or have the will, e'en 1
it had the power, to act justly, we might m the
ordinary wav of diplomatic negotiation, hope to
obtain satisfaction for
zens, and an equitable adjustment oi their claims. ,
We might also insist that foreign nations, which, .
1 like ourselves, are in the position of remonstrant
creditors, should exercise forbearance, and ex
haust all peaceful measures before resorting to
compulsion. But in the present state of affairs in
Mexico, where anarchy, spoliation and crime
have taken the place of good government, hones
ty and social order, we cannot obtain redress lor
outrages by negotiation, because there is no gov
ernment with which to negotiate. Other nations,
whose claims on Mexico are as just aud urgent as
our own, are in a similar predicament.
In this dilemma, the President, whose constitu
tional powers become exhausted, when bis minis
ter had no longer any government in Mexico with
winch he could treat, will now submit the matter
with all the facts and information he possess, to
Congress, and it will be for that body to adopt
the recommendations of the Executive, or propose
some other and better plan, for the execution of
which it w ill confer the requisite powers upon the
President. ’Congress having refused at the close
ofthe last session to adopt the resolution present
ed by Senator Gwin, which proposed to invest the
President with full authority to adjust all our out
standing difficulties with Spanish America as to
him might seem best, it was not in the power of
Mr. Buchanan to tako one step more than he has
taken, without the authority of Congress. The
time is now at band when that authority will be
invoked. Public sentiment is not agreed on the
question how the United States ought to propose
to settle the difficulty so as to secure our own rights
without losing sight of those acknowledged prin
ciples and that approved policy, by which our
government has been guided in its relations with
the lesser States of this continent.
By some it is urged that the best course for the
United States to pursue is, to assume a protecto
rate over the republic of Mexico, such as has been
proposed by General Houston. To this we are
opposed, because we believe it would entail upon
us all the difficulties ancl responsibilities of the
government of Mexico, without investing us with
the necessary authority to enforce our views, and
control those to whom the executive pdwer would
be entrusted. It would tend to promote instead
of obviating disputes between us and Mexico, and
so far as other nations are concerned, would make
us, to a certain extent, answerable for the acts of
the Mexican Government, while in reality wo
should be powerless to do more than advise and
direct, provided our protectorate did not amount
to an absolute assumption of the government,
tYiftVh expensive, and
By others it is recommended that the United
States should use their influence, —their power,
if necessary,—to assist someone of the rival fac
tious in establishing a government on the firm
and durable basis, which should henceforth be
sustained against all other opposing factions, and
with which we, and other powers, could treat for
the adjustment of our and their claims. But the
present condition of Mexico forbids the hope that
this course would lead to the desired result. Par
ties in Mexico are so torn and divided ; the lead
ers arc so unscrupulous and selfishly rapacious, *
the people so utterly demoralized and dead to
patriotism and international duty, that it would
appear to be a task of more than herculean pro
portions to set up and sustain in power any one of
the factions which arc now wasting the energies
of their country in a selfish struggle for the up
per hand, as a means of self-aggrandizement—
not the welfare of the Republic. Juarez, and his
so-called “liberals,” arc the best of the rival par
ties ; but do they possess the elements of success ;
or has their conduct been such as to prove them
to be worthy of sustaining it ? Truth obliges us
to answer in the negative.
The military occupation by the United States
of the Northern provinces of Mexico, including
Sonora, Chihuahua, Durango, New Leon, and
Tamaulipas, as security for our claims, as a hos
tage for the satisfaction of the claims of other na
tions, and as an offset for our demand for their
non-interference, is another course that has been
suggested, but is in our opinion open to serious
objections. To promote peace and order, and
enable Mexico to regenerate herself, we might
purchase (if there is any power in Mexico compe
tent to sell) the sparsely populated portions of the
country, and out of the purchase money, deduct
our own claims and those of the most clamorous
of her other creditors, although we certainly do
not want, for the present at least, any more terri
tory than we possess. A people so entirely dis- ,
similar to our own in character and tastes as the i
Mexicans are, would be a very undesirable acqui- j
sition, until a long course of training under stable I
free institutions, bad qualified them for associa- j
j tion with us. Eventually, and at no distant day ;
perhaps, we may, by the force of circumstances, ;
be compelled to annex portions of Mexico to the !
United States ; but it would be a great misfortune i
it that necessity should be precipitated upon us.
The fruit will fall into our hand when ripe: but
until then, its attempted possession may be at- i
tended with very serious evils. Prudence, for
bearance, and a determination to avoid all armed
interference , unless driven to it by the direct neces-
S1 > ‘’ ; trust, actuate our public couusels,
and lead to wise and philanthropic results.
Xew York Journal of Commerce.
Senator Hammond's Speech.
“That speech, said one of our most eminent cit
izens to-day, a citizen too by the way, who went
for Fremont and Freedom in 1856 ! that speech is
a tract for the times. It is the right thing at the
right time, from the right quarter.”
We find this emphatic testimony to the excell
i ence of Gov. Hammond’s Barnwell speech, in the
letter of a Xew York correspondent of the Char
leston News, who is in ecstaeies over the favorable
impression which it has made at the North. So it
seems that Mr. Hammond has been so fortunate
as to secure not only the approbation ofMr. Gree
ley, but of ‘an eminent citizen, of Xew York, who
went for Fremont and Freedom in 1856. What
higher ambition can a Senator from South Caro
lina cherish, than to win applause from such un
expected quarters ? As Mr. Hammond and the
eminent citizen who supported Fremont in 1856.
were certainly not together then, some curious
people might bepuzzled to know, whether the em
inent citizen has become a convert to the doctrines
of Mr. Calhoun, which the Senators who represent
the state rights democracy of the South generally
entertain, or whether the views of Gov. Hammond j
have been so modified as to he acceptable to the
friends of ‘Fremont and Freedom.’ but o-ood unin
quiring national patriots will onlv see in this sud
den concordance, new evidence that the South is
on ‘rising ground,’ and find it another guaranty of i
the perpetuity of the glorious Union * 1

Worthy of Commendation,
The presof Georgia to *

does not give the meed of praise to Judge Crit
tenden. of Spaulding county, for introducing o
first bill in the Georgia Legislature which looks

litical purpose ever sought tt be a u 0 o lie , in

advance of Judge Crittenden, ever seem.,
thought ofthe interest of the press in the legisla
tion of the State. He has introduceed in the pres-
ent Legislature, a bill—
“To point out the mode of collecting newspaper j
accounts; editors .m nod to collect their claims ;
! at the point of ; livery.”
Such a bill : manifestly just. Under the pres- j
I ent system it s almost impossible for newspaper j
proprietors 1 : > collect the amounts due them, be- j
cause they a.e distr’ mted among various magis- j
trates’ districts, and each subscriber, no matter
what his post office, must be hunted up, h ; y; ina g.
istrate found out, and suit institute., m a particu
lar district, with no one to attend to the creditor’s
interests, before there is any possible chance for
collecting even a two dollar account. Judge Crit
tenden proposes simply to make it obligatory up
on newspaper subscribers to answer to the demand
of their papers. Say a man lives in Spalding
county, no matter what part of it, and fakes his
paper at the Griffin post office. Then let him, if
he is mean enough not to pay it without, be sued
in Griffin, and judgment obtained against him
there. Then, if lie objects on the ground that he
has paid, he can produce his receipt; or if he
says he has not received the paper, the post mas
ter is these to testify. Besides, responsible men
will be willing to undertake the collection of news
paper accounts, under such a law, where they now

From the Augusta Dispatch.
The Culture of Cotton.
The statesmen of England and the spinners of
Manchester are unrelaxing in their efforts
to render themselves independent of Amer
ica for cotton. The great bond of peace
between England and [America, says the Rich
mond Dispatch, is that which the cotton fields of
the South afford. Viewed simply as a bulwark of
defence against European aggression, the cotton
bales of the South are as effectual as a standing
army of live hundred thousand men, and a navy
as large as that of Great Britain. That country
cannot afford to quarrel with us, and would soon
er give up every point of controversy that now
exists between the two nations, or is likely to arise
hereafter, than run the risk of those calamities,
constantly increasing consumption of cotton has
produced a strong apprehension in England, lest
the supply should prove inadequate to the de
maud, and has added new energy to the efforts,
now making, to become independent of the Amer
ican staple. We do not perceive any signs of
alarm, or even solicitude, in the South, as to the
result of the British experiments. Dr. Livings
ton, it is true, represents cotton as being exten
sively cultivated in Africa, where the natives raise
it for their own use, and an able bodied laborer
* can be obtained at from twenty to fifty dollars per
annum. But, even if Africa could be brought in
to the field, it is not likely that, under the most
favorable circumstances, it would lie able for a
century to coine, to do more than keep pace with
the iucreasing demand of that period. The cot
ton fields of our Southern States are as yet only
partially worked, and, under the greater skill
and experience of Americans, can put all foreign
competition at defiance. At one time, remarks
the New Orleans Bulletin, it was supposed that
India could alone compete with the Southern
States; and when, twenty years ago, the British
East India Company undertook the experiment
of the cultivation of cotton, it was watched with
the deepest interest, and the results were looked
for with no little solicitude. Something was cer
tainly accomplished, but nothing of importance.
The total export of cotton from India ill 1835,
amounted to 245,000 bales, and in twenty years
thereafter, that is, in JSSS, it amounted to double
that quantity, It is true the London correspon
dent of the National Intelligencer states that the
problem of growing cotton in British India, is
now completely solved in the affirmative. But,
in the opinion of practical American planters,
who have visited and resided therefor years, for
midable difficulties to this alleged success, will be
found in the alternate long periods of wet and
dry weather. More recently, Africa has been |
thought of as a proper field for the cultivation of ;
cotton, and several English merchants have devo- !
ted especial attention to that quarter. Mr. Clegg, I
who has been the most active in the matter, says ;
that in 1852, only 1,800 pounds of cotton from
Africa were brought to Great Britain, whereas in
1857, the amount was 30,000 pounds, and with a i
still greater increase for the first five months of |
1858. Another gentleman says, that from Lagos j
the shipment of cotton in 1856 was 34,491 lbs. |
and in 18,57 was 114,844, while in the same year
not less than 500,000 pounds of cotton cloth,of na
tive manufacture, were shipped to Brazil. These
firgures are small, and are scarcely calculated to
attract serious attention.
