South Carolina Again.
AVe alluded a few days since to the past and
present attitude of South Carolina towards the
Southern States, and ventured the assertion that
she was loosing much of the Calhoun-spirit, that
characterized her in years past—quoting also from
Northern journals to sustain us in our opinion.—
We said in figurative language, that we feared
that the “star of South Carolina that had so long
guided ‘.he patriot by its effulgence, Arc.” was
“being eclipsed by the clouds of Unionism, con
Our conservative cotemporary of the Savannah
Republican affects a laugh at what we said and
appears to be amused! It says that that star has
- r- - ~ *9 „*wl * it
Las been ki ti*o hi*fit- ‘'and begins to brighten as
it approaches the u terestial globe.
We arc not surprised at the “observations” of
our cotemporary. They tally-precisely with those
taken by Northern astronomers for the last forty
years—that star has always appeared “high”
when viewed through a telescope planted on
Northern soil and through the mist and fog of
Unionism and every other sort of ism. to the
naked eye it. lins been visible at the South and
known by its effulgence and brightness. It only
glows dim as it goes North want and approaches
the standpoint—the “terestial globe”—front
whence our cotemporary takes his observations.
We do not mean to question the purity of our co
teiupprary’s motives, the is good enough
hut simply to dotj.ee the remarkable coincidence
of his calculation of distance with that of obser
vers nii the plains of Boston or some other distant
Slavks in Richmond. —We learn from the
Richmond Examiner, that the sales of this Stock
in the Richmond marts during this week, average
about *B*o,ooo per day. Notwithstanding the
ilireet importation opposition in Georgia; the jui
ces still keep up at very high figures. We see
that down South one of the Wanderer’s late car
go of imported live Africans —“a stout, likely
and tractable young fellow, aged 14 ’ —was sold
in Augusta, for $260 only. Boys of that stamp in
Richmond, are knocked down to the tune of 1200

Wen re pleased to see from the proceedings of
Congress published in the Daily G lobe, that the
lion. Senator, whose name heads this article, is
beariqg a conspicuous part in the debates of the
session. In the debate of Friday, the 24th inst.,
we find the following remarks made by him up
on the bill granting relief to the widow of the
late Col. Trumbull, which are so consistent with
justice and a high sense of duty, at the expense
uf par natgne. (hat we
Mr. IVERSON said:
1 know it is a very ungracious thing to on
pose a bill of this sort; for the bill under consid
eration is certainly one of those eases which ap
peals strongly to sympathy. It is uothing move
nor less than a mere gratuity. There is no jus
tice nor right in it, uor is it pretended that there
is any. Ido not rise, however, for the purpose of
debating tuis case, but to state a fact to the Sen-*
ate. We have a bill upon our table, just sent from
the House of Representatives, which grants a pen
sion of ninety-six dollars, a year to every officer
and soldier who is alive that was engaged in the
war of 1812, and to the widows of those who are
dead. By a calculation which has been made up
on very reliable data, that bill will draw from the
Treasury $18,000,000 a year : and here is a prop
osition tw extend oven that system, to given pen
sion to the widow of an officer who died in the
service, without any evidence that his death re
sulted from wounds or from disease contracted in 1
the line <>f his duty. If we do it in tills case, I
ask what is the reason we should not <lo it. as the
Senator from Connecticut has very properly said,
in every case, and not only grant a pension to
the widow of every officer who dies in the service,
but to the widow of every soldier; for I do not
see the least distinction between a soldier and an
officer? If one is entitled more than the other, it is
the widow of the poor soldier who trudges along
anil exposes his life on all occasions, and who has
nothing to leave to his widow and children to
support them. Officers have high salaries: they
have high social position; they have many advan
tages that soldiers do not have: and so have their
widows and surviving children. If, therefore,
there be any regard to justice or propriety, the
soldier ought to be entitled to the bounty ‘of the
Government rather than the officer. It is a mere
gratuityut is a proposition to take out of thetrea
usy money which has been put there by the sweat
of the brows of millions, to feed those who have
been already pampered by the government. That
is the long and the short of it: hut I do not in
tend to debate it. 1 shall ask for the yeas and
nays on the passage of the bill.

gomery Advertiser, writes as follows.
Some of the mysteries attending the Ministry
of John Forsyth, in Mexico, will soon be Cleared
P- On Tuesday Mr. Clay, of your State, intro

lay before the Senate the correspondence between
the Mexican Government and Mr. Forsyth, Min

which resulted in the suspension of diplomatic
relations with Mexico by the l nited States lega

We are glad that Mr. Clay has taken this pre

that Mr. lorsytk’s official acts in Mexico will
bear inspection, and it is time the country were

Gen. Jefferson Davis and Judge Houston
rj in the Territory -ve-
Wkorn did G*o T> ’
“trifling - ‘ .-avis mean to characterize as
c,. p politicians” in his 4th of July bpecch at :
jt “Who are the “musquit-oes” which buzzed ,
such agreeable music in the ears of his Northern j
admirers on that interesting and to him eventful l
occasion? Gen. Davis says: “The publisher ot
that “sketch,” of his sea speech, has already an- j
nounced that it teas not a report and for its lan
guage J could not jw>dy be considered responsible.
To this it is needless that I should add ahy thing.’
It strikes a plain man that it would have been
quite as easy and a great deal more satisfactory
if he had said so, for Gen. Davis to have just said
out, in an announcement as clear as the “crack’
of his “Mississippi rifle.” “/ never used the lan
guage attributed to me by “the publisher of that
sketch.” He does not say this, evidently because,
he did use it. But he says in effect; “altbo’ I
did use. it, the “publisher of that sketch’ says
“the sketch” is “not a report ” and I ought not to
beheld “responsible for it!” What! JEFFER
SON DAVIS not “responsible” for the language
whicji he used! And, why not ? Because a
“sketch” of a speech, is not a “report!” and “the
publisher ot the sketch” says he ought not to be ]
made “responsible !” Surely his Southern friends
will be satisfied with this endorsement of his Aor
them admirers. Perhaps so!- But, I prefer to
consider him “responsible.” Indeed lie so con
siders himself, and proceeds on this basts to ex
plain his meaning. Let us hear him and do him
justice. Mr. Senator Davis magnanimously
waives the exculpatory announcement of the “pub
lisher of the sketch of the 4th of July speech at
S ea” and says: “But I have treated it and will
treat it in the view necessarily taken by thtise who
construed it before such denial was AN liat
nor has the “publisher of the sketch.” The “pub
lisher of the sketch” says it was not a “report”
of the sea speech. Very.well, but, did Senator
Davis use the language attributed to him by the
“sketch ?” The “publisher “does not deny that
be did. Gen. Davis does not deny that he did. —
The “publisher” says the is not a “re
port’’—and we all knew that before. lie adds
that Gen. Davis “could not justly be considered
responsible for the language” of the sketch. Pos
sibly not. But ibis remarkable that the “publisher”
does not deny that he -used it ! There is no “de
nial” .in the case. Gen. Davis is “responsible”
for it! lie does not wow deny using it. He makes
no “ deniall” but reasons out the case : why treat
it arguendo, when it is a mere matter oifact and
one word of “denial” would settle the whole mat
ter. But Gen. Davis not only does not deny using
the language attributed to him, but bo confesses
it! and most adroitly avoids its force.
He says it would have been “strange indeed”
if he should have “sought, an occasion to heap
reproachful language upon the State Rights Dem
ocracy.” lie was of them—had stood with them
“in the hour of gloom and defeat,” and they, “in
the period of greatest advefsty had no cause to com
plain of his fealty.” This is all over true audit did
seem “strange indeed” to see him standingup in the
midst of their enemies and using language at all
capable of sued/ a construction —language that
could require explanation. But Gen Davis say’s
and we believe him, that he did not mean to ap
ply the stinging epithet of “trifling politicians'’
to the “States Rights Democracy.” We rejoice
that lie did not. We regret that he gave any oc
casion for such an impression. He says he intend

who seek to preserve the government as our fath
ers found it. Sd. What did ho mean by saying
“and this great country will remain united” in
spite of these “trifling politicians.” He says that
he meant it would remain “united to protect our
National flag (!) whenever a foreign power pre
suming on domestic dissension should dare to in
Doubtless this is wbat lie meant, but how un
fortunate that he did not explain what “Union”
it was lie was so zealously defending. Certainly
his audience and the public maybe excused for
thinking he was talking about none other than
our “glorious Union,” and more especially, as in
BbuiiniTgnTwr/ot%"By v, ?.fe ; ypri\tim Trn i: Jtffrn
tlio foes of tho United resistance to a “foreign
flag.” We have never-heard that any Southern
ultra ever yet took the ground that as long as the
Federal Union exists, the Union of Arms against
a foreign flag should not exi. t.
Wc are not doubting that the distinguished or
ator has truly told us whom he meant by “tri
fling politicians,” and what sort of a “Union” he
was defending. But we say it is unfortunate that
he did not sufficiently explain these tilings to his
Northern audience, to prevent misconstruction,
and that ho did not, is manifest from Jtho fact that,
he has no quarrel with the publisher of his speech.
If he had done so,the reception which the Northern
press has given his explanation, is in evidence
that his march through the Northern States
would not have been so triumphant as it was.
After all. it seems there arc hut two points up
on which the Southern Rights Democracy can
justly take serious issue with Gen. Davis. The
first is his substantial agreement with Judge
Douglas in his Squatter Sovereignty “heresy.” Of
this we have sufficiently spoken.
The second point of disagreement between the
gallant Senator and the Southern Rights Demo
cracy! (and he never says “Southern Ilights De
mocracy,” but more mildly “States Rights De
mocracy,” with which we have no special quarrel)
is one of a radical character. lie says, “I hold
now, as announced on former occasions, that
whilst occupying a seat in the Senate, I am bound
to maintain the government of the Constitution, and
in no manner to work for its destruction: that the
obligation of THE OATH OF OFFICE. Mississ
ippi s honor and MY OWN, require that AS A
SENATOR of the United States, there should be
no want of loyalty to the Constitutional Union.—
Whenever Mississippi shall resolve to separate
from the Confederacy, I will expect, her to with
draw her representatives from the General Gov
ernment, to which they are accredited. If I
should ever, whilst a Senator, deem it my duty to
assume an attitude of hostility to the Union. I
should immediately thereupon feel bound to resign
the office, and return to my Constituency to in
form them of thefact. It was this view of (he ob

rious occasions, to repel, with much indignation,
the accusation of beinga disnnionist. while hold
ing the office of SENATOR OF THE UNITED
This is a most extraordinary position for a
radical Southern Rights or State Rights man like
the distinguished Senator of Mississippi to take.—
He evidently conceives himself as he says, “a
Senator of the UNITED STATES,” and not of
MISSISSIPPI, according to the State Rights
theory. The “oath of office’ hinds him in a de
spotic “loyalty” to the “ l mou.% hut not to fi
delity to the STATE: as a ‘Senator’ he must light
for “the Union’’ at all hazards. It is only as a
private citizen that he can help Mississippi in “the

alty to the Constitutional Union and again, of
his being “bound to maintain the Government of
the Constitution,” but the proof is'ample that he
I simply means “the glorious Union.” and the
“Government” “dry so.’’ What is that proof?
Why that nobody ever thought of asking him to
work in “any manner for the destruction of the
Constitutional Union.” The “States Rights De
mocracy’ has lifted no traitorous hand against ‘the
Government of the Constitution.’ It is for the Con
stitution—in defence of the Constitutional Union,
and for the maintainance of “the Government of
the Constitution,” that States Rights men work
ever and every where. Senators and citizens to
gether! An “oath” to support the Constitution,
we hold to.be an oath to support the Rights'of the
States, and that a Senator by virtue of his official
obligations is all the more bound to work for the
destruction of an unconstitutional and the main
tninaneeof a Constitutional Union. Whatever is
right for the citizen, is right for the Senator. —
Senator Davis is “loyal“ to government as such.—
The “States Rights Democracy is loyal to Con
stitutional smdjree government. The Senator is
a military man and obeys orders. The Southern
Democracy adheres to the principles of the gov
ernment and stands by the rights of the South,

I as out of it. . , ‘
It is not onr office to doubt Jefferson Davis de-
votion to the South. We do no such thing. Ilis
jiatriotism. bis eloquence, his gallantry are all
beyond question. Nor have we any disposition
to discredit his statesmanship, though that is not
so well attested.

Restorative has passed the ordeal of innumerable

power of the roots on the denuded places, and
causes the fibres to shoot forth anew—that it dis
solves and removes dandruff, prevents grayness,
restores the hair to its original color when gray

imparts the sofness and flexibility of silk to the
hair, and keeps it always luxuriant, healthy and
