Contemplating a materia! improvement of

luaking the necessary irrai getwets for that
purpose, and as we look with conlifidence to our

have determined to give them this early notice

Though a semi-mnonthly issue was deeinied
to be the most expedie'nt in Tfi coin!i;ce

wheti the ground which'it occupied,"being ex

and when our domestic resooreeswere yet un

when a weekly publication isdemantded. -En
teriaieing this conv'ictin,-we have resohed to
issue tlexn.stning volme wieklv, a'nd to make
such improvemtits in the appearance and plat

and that to refuse to extend to tky S(imbern

die slaveholding States withholding from them

Here are great principles-such as it should
seemno Southern man could fil to find ample
motiye for sppporting. Does Mr. Preston re
persisted aga.n1t the earniedt regnests of' his col.
memiber that he rose in his sent and m4iiVaid
league in his monti, to lay this resolution .oir
the table? Jr hg.has forgotteri, he will excuse
the people, woere at leisAre for remembering.

his pian? By no mens. It looked to the
satnction of a'general principle of which his in
tended motion was. nt inidiviltial application.
But it would.he seemed to thiik, take a little ol
the gloss offotom his movement-so, 1. it ;Ip
eara. frotin a little peenil vanitily. a speck
of self titerest, he 6pposed and defeated a reso
Iesticidftiimitg tfy- equal rights of the South
ern Staies 'under the Cenestitutitn. Ilad we
not a right to suppose that hietIight have an
eqntni self-interest in pleasing Harrison and his
northern allies on the Bunmida question, an-i
if so. that a like motive iight possibly produce
a like effect?
There is one other instance which mny hnve
been in the pings qf1hc qlirleston Mleeting
when they mdulged .n a sipposition which
51r. Preston ' osi 3lirs so:deregatory to his
well known and uimpeachable devotion to the
Somth. The following paragraph -has to our
eye the aspect of a very old and familiar ac
qnnintance-bas'r Senator forgotten it?
