to the opinion, that any coinnimit tal on
the subject now, is premature. We con
fess too, that we would like In see some
evidence of general amnesty by the oli
Union party, in the choice of the opposite
part v, to the Legislature, from the districts
where they held the ascendancy. The
nullification districts have in many cases
set the example of electing their old oppo
nents, but if it has been followed in a sin
gle instance by the Union districts we can
not call it to mind."
Our residence in this State, since the
old party lines were borken up, does not
enable us to speak conjidentlv, in intters
relating to iitem. Wv'e knov very little
indeed in relation to them, and have nev
er cared to enquire. We presonie, how
ever, that the "old Union party" have
inanilested no disinclination to support
their old opponetils, on any proper occa
sion: at any rate wo have never heiard otf
any hing of the kind; and, if we miktako
not, Kershaw Dittrict is at least "a single
instance," where, having tlthe ascendati
cy," they have elected b-come of the oppo
site pany to the Legislature." liut, even
though there were, as yet, no such partic
tilar instance, is it not sutlicient, that they
have every where acted with us, cordial
ly, honestly. and zenlously, throughout the
State, in the several Districts, tl the
Legislature, in support of our coinion
priNciples and measures ? As a striking
instance of this, within our knowledge, we
may mentiotn, that when we were invited
here toadvocale those common principles
and ineasures, it was alike by Uniun men
and Nullilires. Oti suggestigla to one of
the latter, (among the reason which deci
ded its at first to decline.) that we should
perhaps be objectionable to the Union In
dependent Treasury men, in consequence
of out former zealous advocaey of the
principles of Nullfication, he said no; that
when they were asked if we should be so,
they declared not in the least, as; fully and
heartily concurring with them, on the ex
isiing great question at issue, they should
he eqiually as well salisfied with tts, as if
we had licen a Union man; And when our
Prospectts was issued, their acts fully jus

It alrTrds us pleasure, thus openly and
publicly, to testify to their liherality, itm
pariiality, and good faith, and, utder all
the circuimstances, it is certainly dute to
them from us. We frankly submit it to
our hithly respected contemporary of the
Mcssenger, if this he not a strong and
over ruling set -oflto his objection ; mani
fested, as it has been, not in "a single in
stance," only. but by the Union istricts
oenerally. We presume those Districts
have not, in any plain and( unequivocal
manter, refused to support them "of the
opposite party," who it is probable have
never ofTered themselves t) them as candi
dates; and if t hey have not particularly
called them out, this may very fairly be
attributed, as rm ucl to thati honorable deli
cacy of feeling, which would naturally
prompt a minority, to hesitate in ofrering
unsolicied polit:ial favors to the men of
tle majority, as to any disinclination to
supportthe. It is plain, that these acts
of concession and coiciliation, should be
from the strong, to the weak-the majori
iy, to the minority-not from the weak to
the strong. lfsuch has been the case, so
far, it is as it should; -and we rejoice that
out- friends have set a most noble and
maenanimous example of it, in the nomi
nation of Col. Riehardson, which cannot
be Itistaken-which is an honor to hu
manity, and puts to shame, the miserably
narrowv and contracted condutct so common

a most singular comtmunicationt, in the
Chiarle'ston Courier, of Tu'esdlay last, sign
ed "The Low-er Country," qutestionitng the
propriety oif the nomination, and the mode,
&c., and putting forth Judge David John
sotn, in opposition to it. Weo are utterly
unable to perceiv-e any thing in it "out oif
the usual course;" but, not having time
or ro at present to show that it is niot so,
wvill barely 'ematrk, that if the writer a
grees with Cad. Richartdson, ini politics, it
is rather astonishing that lie shotulad nomri
nate Judge Johnson; and if he agrees with
Judge Johnson it is not at all suirprising;
hat lie opJpos the nomination of olt.
Richardsotn. In the latter case. how cain
he assutme to sp~eak for- a party lie so thor
onighy difTers fromi 7-or, int the formuer-, howv
reconcile it to his pr-inciples, to nomintate a
moan so dlecidely opposedge them ? We
should like to see him "defi ne his position,"
in this matter!
We entertain a-high respect for Jtudge
Johnson, persoinally, but, as we dleclaredi
when lie w'as advocated by the Telescope,
last suitmier, it is altogether oum of the
question, for tts, 0or ottr political f'rienuds,
either of the ohal Nullification or Union
party, to support a thorough Clay; andI
United Statcs Bank man, for- the highest
ohlice in the State.
If the writer in the Courier agrees with
Judge Johntsoni, let him come oat openly
andh say so, andI thereby give a good reason
for supporting him, against Col. Richard
son; but, in such ease, w'hat right has he
to decliare himself "not well satisfiedl," &c.
as though some injtist ice had been done
to him, or his c.andidlate ? And if he a
grees with tis, and Col. Richardson, antd
yet expects uts to support a man diamerri
cally opposed to us in principle, from be
ginning to end, might we not well say to
him, "Is thy servant a dog, that he should

We hnd last evening by the Liverpool
packet ship Patrick Henry. news from
Europe nine days later than before, viz: to
the 26th of December. The lBritish Queen
which has been looked for so earnestly,
for a fortnight past is not coming. She
arrived at Pori routh,1England, Dec. 25th,
after a boisterous passage of 25 days, and
and would lie over until 1st of Marh.
The steamer Liverpool had not arrived out
and it was doubtful whether she would re
urn until spring. Old Atlantic roars and
rages so in December, that the steamers
have their match with him. The wid
packets get along quite as well and rather
better. The news from England is or but
moderate importance. It was excepted
that the 1st of January would show a do
clinte of id per lb. on cotton at Liverpool,
but this fall was expected to be produced
by the news carried but out by the Queen
confirming the large crop calculation.
Of course we are as much in doubt as he
fore as to the effect of that news. In the
absenceof that news the cotton market
remained very much as at our previous
