THE SPIRIT OF '32,
TuE STATE MANUFACTURING HEr. oWN
ARMS FoR DEFENCE.-As in the manufacture
of ma'berials for domestic consumption, so
also in that of Arms for her own defence, the
State of South-Carolina is gradually paving
her way to that career of independence which
will yet conduct her to prosperity and wealth.
Withithe construction of a Powder Magazine
and Depot for the reception of arms, on the
Citadel Square, the Ordinance Department
have takes another step which will be hailed
with more general satisfaction than the loca
tion of the Magazine appears to have given.
They have orderd to be cast within this State,
two Batteries of Field Artillery, consisting
of .eight '6 pounders, and four 12 pound
flowitzers-the material to be bronze-the
pattern the same as used in the United States
Arumy-carriages for these twelve pieces are
alrs to be furnished with all requisite imple
mets-the contract to be completed, and the
work ready for delivery by the 15th day of
June next. Here is a fine opportunity for the
enterprising proprietors of our foundries to
come out'and show what they can do, under
State patronage, and in a good cause. It
would be inconsistent to call upon our neigh
bors or foes to furnish us with sticks to break
their owu heads with, and there is no earthly
reason that we should be reduced to this ex
tremity. We can make our own cannon as
well as our own cotton bags, (which were
once made to serve the same purpose at New
Orleans,) or our own clothing and daily food.
We have already shown that we can, with
our various factories, clothe ourselves, eat
ourselves, physic ourselves--nd now we
have a chance to snooT ourselves without
calling upon the Yankees to supply the mate
SECESSMON AND NULLIFICATro.-A declara
tion of Gen. Jackson is quoted by some edi
tors, that Secession and Nullification are the
same; that both are treasonable. The opin.
ions of distinguished politicians are often as
wide from the mark of common sense, as
those of other persons. To nullify is to net
insopposition to the constituted authorities
while acknowledging their legal force under
the Co'natitution ; and this is treason.
Sicession is an act of sovereignty by
which the-compact is annulled by one of the
coniracting parties on account of a violation
.f its conditions. There is no such thing as
-constitutional secession; the ground of se
-cession is that there is no constitution, be.
.cause the charter is broken, and therefore
.does not exist. The State has merged a part
only of her sovereignty in a common stock
of authority and when this authority is abused
or the conditions of the grant violated she
resumes her delegated trusts; is a sovereign
State, and cannot commit treason. This is
We admit that this conclusion canrot be
Teached through the mazes of legal techni
calities'and precedents. Why ? because not
-one 6f the former applies to the case in hand,
any more than it would apply to the atmos
phere of the moon-and there are none of
the latter on record that admit of the least
.application iti the premises. This is an origi
nal question, and cannot be solved or explain
ed through the musty folios that come down
to us'through~ th~e despotisms of ages,' and

.nar~hia1 and imperial notions of liberty and
equality and the rights of man.-Wilming
Loox ouT FOR COUNTERFEITS-Bank of
South Carolina.-Some years ago our com-.
mnunity was troubled with counterfeit bills on
the Bank of South Carolina, and upon a stir
being made, they were suppressed until with
in a few days since, when one was discovered
in circulation again, and since two more have
been offered. T.hey are supposed to be five
dollar bills of the old "Bank of West Flori
da," "Apalachieola"-" Bank of West Flor
ida," and " Apalachicola," having been eras
ed, -and "Bank of South Carolina," and
SCharleston," placed in the stead; and in
some it is so wvell done that it takes close in
speetion to discover the fraud. The oldest
issue is signed ".Goodard, Pres." and J. C.
Wiggins, Cash'r:" the last issue, "J. S.
Cogdell, Pres.;" Ca shier'saname unintelligible
but appears like former issue; both well exe
cuted. First payable to "J. Hale," latter
payable to "W. Jones." The former has
the letters " A a,"'with a-under each letter,
the latter the letter "A," the little "a" ap
parently erased.-Wakulla(Fla.) Times, 12th
SAD INCIDENT AT SEA.-Letters have been
received at Augusta, Me., from Mr. and Mrs.
Severance, who left here some months since
in the ship Gentoo, Captain Dovens, for the
Sandwich Islands. The letters are in the
Kennebec Journal. In a letter from Mrs. Se
verance dated Dec. 1, off Valparaiso, she
gives the following account of a melancholy
"Our number of passengers is eleven.
The officers and crew twenty-six now. One
of our -number is no more. On Monday
morning, the 18th of November, of Cape
Horn, Thomas L. King fell from the foremast,
struck the railing, and thence fell into the
sea. He soon disappeared. The scene on
deck for a moment I can never forget. It
wvas blowing a gale, the waves running moun
tains high. Attempts were made to get the
boat out, hut all in vain. He was a healthy,
strong and good boy, about sixteen years of
age, from Boston. The captain, at 12 o'clock,
called all hands into the cabin; the church
services were read, a hymn sung by the young
ladies, and thus was done the last for that poor
boy. God in mercy prepare his dear parents
to meet the affliction with submission.
IN AID AETER TnJE HONEY Moo.-When
Hon. Trumau Smith, Senator from Connecti
cut, returned to Washington wvith his youth.
.ful, accomplished and handsome Alabama
wife, somebody asked him how many slaves
she had. "Only one," said Truman, bowing
tow, and placing his hand upon heart-" only
one, who is proud to be her slave." This
wvas very good. A correspondent of the N.
York Herald gives a suplemnentary anecdote
a month later. On the night the platform
gave way at the Washington Circus, Mr.
Smith was present with his young wife, and
it is said that when the crash came, ho ran
for the door, leaving the lady to shift for her
self. Another lady, observing it, remarked,
pointing at the honorable Senator from Con
neticut-" Look! look! there goes a fugitive
LoNGEvTY.-A negro man, the property
of Mr. Newvnan, of this city, died, yesterdaiy

Gov. QVITMAN.-The-re]wrts Qtruitedoboiii
to the efleet that it was in proof that - Gov.
Quitinan had addressed-a large crowd of the <
Cubans at a Club room in Lafayette, above v
New Orleans-that he had purchased Cuba t
bonds, &c., are absolutely and unconditional- d
lv false. When applied to, to take command (
of the expedition, he instantly declined on ,
account of the station he held; and so care- t
ful was he of violating the laws of neutrahi
ty, that he did noteven inquire into the means
and plans of the expeditionaries. lie felt a
warm interest and sympathy in the expedi
tion, as did thousands of others, including
ourself, and he gave letters of introduction
addressed to the leaders of it, to several gen
tlemen who had served with him in Mexico, t
who were determined to join it, and whom he t
felt solicitous should receive such stations as]
their merit entitled them to. This, with the
private loan of some small sums of money, t
is about the extent to which lie was "impli
cated." We have these facts from a near 1
friend of the Governor, whose word has
never been doubted or called in question.
And for this (we have authority for saying)
cabinet conclaves have been held at Wash
ington, and venal letter writers have been in
structed to declare, (for mean purposes) that
the government had evidence "to convict
him ten times over." Upon such a flimsy
pretext, this indictme'nt has been urged, for
get ful of all courtesy due to the State Gov
ernment, to the extent of forcing the Gover
nor to a resignation.-Vicksburg Sentinel.
THE EXPENSES OF GovERNMENT.-The
supply bills which are before Congress in
elude an expenditure of nearly forty-seven
millions of dollars, is follows: The Defici
eney bill, amounting to about $2,500,000; b
Civil and Diplomatic, $6,500,000 ; Army and t
Ordinnce and Fortifications, 810,500,000;
West Point Academy, $200,000; Navy,
$10,000,000: Indian Expenses, $2,000,000 ;
Post office, 85,500,000: Mexican Indemnity,
$3,600,000; River and Harbor Appropria
tions, $2,000.000; Light House, $400,000;
Coast Survey, 8180,000; Pensions, $1,500,- <
000; Total, $40,880,000. Besides these there
will be an odd million or two for the bounda
ry commission, special Indian negotiations,
and the usual annual indefinite and perma
nent appropriations, not estimated foi of $5,
500,000. These sums together will make the
total appropriations of the present session
amount to somewhat over fifty millions of
dollars. The aggregate is arrived at without t
taking into the account such contingencies as
the passage of the French Spoliat ion bill, the
Amistad and the Ritchie claims. The vaunted
superior economy of a republican over a mo
narchical government is likely soon at this
rate, to be an empty boast. The great annual
expenditure of the French and United States
Governments is the theme of comment in tile
British press, and a portion of it seems rat her

most as much for the people to govern them.

Post, speculating on rumored divisions in the
State, has tie following paragraph. Our rea
ders will note the definition this abolition a

" The Secessionists, therefore. in South C
Carolina, are likely to be divided into two %
