WEDNEsDAY, FEDaUARtY 21, 1344.
W1e will cling to the Pillars of the Temple of
our Libertes,andifit mustfall, ce will Pcrish
amidst the Ruins."
7 We publish with pleasure, the commu_
nication of " Many Planters." upon the subject
of tie Governor's election, having some time
since declared our columns open to the friends
of all the candidates; and at the time of mnak.
ing such declaration, being fully convinced.
that the people had little to do with that elcc
ti'm, after having mentioned who was the can
didate of our own choice, we had determined
to drop the subject, and as regarded our self,
tallow each and every candidate,through their
friends, by the aid of our columns, to have a
fair hearing; knowing what little influence we
had, could avsil nought, we had come to the
same concljsion with our friend of the Ham
burg Journal. "that there ik but little to he
made in pufing and blowing for men who cares
nothing for its, and know us not from a side of
sole leather." and, who just before they are
elevated to office, will bow and scrape to every
one they meet; but, after they are snugly seat
ed, carry their heads so It igh, that they know
not a "poor dvcil" of an editor, unless he be
one of those cunting. hypocritical mortals, who
has been raised from the dust for their use, and
is ever at their heels for orders-that is, to
know what is the will of the incumbent, or who
is to be denounced, through the columns ol'his
press to please his master. So long as we have
been at the head of a press, we have used eve
ry means in our power to stear clear of all
party Cliques, and in making our present choice
we never consulted any nn or set ofan, but
from motives, which we are confident is pure,
have selected Mr. Seatlrook, as the most litting.
of the candidates now before the people, to fill
the Gubernatorial Chair. he having been for a
number of years, and still remains, the leader
in- all great Agrietltural mo'einents in our
State, and a practical, as well as a " Book,'
Agriculturist. That there has been Cliques in
our State, at all Gubernatorial elections, tie
presume, no one will deny, but, at this timt: we
are not acquainted with the secret proceedings
of the friends ofeither of tho nominees, there
fore are unable to say which is the no rnince of
the strongest and most powerful Clique. We
are satisfied, that'utder the preseit state of af
fairs, it would puzzle a wiser head than ours to
tell who was the "People's Candidate," as the
"dear people," have so little to say, as regards
who shall be the Governor of our beloved State,
that at least one-eighth of the population at the
present time, can hardly inform you who is the
Governor, or how lie is elected; their repre
sentatives make them a Governor, and that is
enough for them to k nowv, as they are elected
to attend to that, in connexion with other buisi
ness, they think, as is getierally the case, that
what their representativcs do is right. There
fore, the idea of any onte of the endidates now
before the people.beinug the "people's candidate"
is fitllacious, as neither has been nomjiunted by
any body of the people, but by what may be
termed in every sense of the word a clique, the
people, or at least thme great body of the m never
having been consulted upon the subject. We
have long since stated, and still adhere to the
principle, that the election of Governor belongs,
of right. 'to the people, and until our Constitn
tion is so amended as to pttt into the people's
hanids the glorious priviledgo of v'oting per cap
ita, for their Governor, they never can expect
to have a " People's candidate," but must sub
muit to the rule of Cliqucs.
Having been reqnested to notice our friend
" Many Planters," we have been forced to take
-this mode of doing so, to clear our skirts of the
charge thrown out towards us of being under
the rule of a Clipse.

It will be fortunately for the U. States
if this new controversy should be taken out
of the hands of the time-serving politi
cians and popularity-hunters with which
the country is infested. The Oregon
question is a political hobby which certain
Westorn members of Congress were de
termined to ride for their own selfish
ends. They discovered that political capi
tal could be-made out of it. A debate on
this subject had been opened in the Senate
apparently, for poti lar effect. Fortunately
the firmness of the Committee on Foreign
AtFaires in the Senate removed the ques
tion from the dangerous arena of legislative
debate and wisely placed it with the Ex
ecutive department, where it will be con
sidered free from the contagion of political
passions and the influence of political cal
culations. Let un hope that the same for
tunate issue that accompanied the Ashbur
iou Treaty will attend the result of the
present negotiation.-Charleston Patriot.
From the Pendleton Messenger.
We alluded last week to the manner in
which Ma. CALnour's letter was spoken
of by some of the papers as a withdrawal
of his name from the presidential canvass;
and expressed the opinion, that it could be
regarded as nothing more than a declaration
that he would not permit it to go before a
convention composed as that at Baltimore
will be of delegates not fairly chosen. We
have seen no'hing to change that view of
the subject; and we find that we are far
from being singular in our opinion. Besides
the expression we have heard from vari
ous other quarters, we find the following in
a letter from the Washington correspon
dent of the Charleston Mercurq, which
shows the view taken there.

Cotton.-The receipts during the week have
been light. Since our last report the market
has been subject to much flucituation. From
the advance then noticed, a decline commenc
ed, upon the receipt of the first irregular intel.
ligence from Europe. and the market sank to
the condition of the previous weak. On Tues
day evening we received intelligence. appa
rently more favorable and the market had re
vived at the close of the week, and an advance
sustained of fully one quarter of a cent. Very
little has been doing during the week. The
market closes, however, under more favornble
auspices. We quote the extremes at from S to

there is now considerable coining in, by bouts

about 4 acent since our last report. and not yet
recovered from this decline, under the infin
ence of the late favorable advices from Liver
pool. the market is nevertheless quite animated,
and some improvement in prices tnay reasoua
