I. W. IIAYNE.
WAsmIZrGToM, Aug. 7, 1852.
k' DEAR SIR: It may be, perhaps, my duty,
in reply to you'r letter, to' express some of my
opinions uipon the more prornineift political
questions which now engage the pubhi mind,
especially as they may aficet the State of South
With a firm belief that the Constitution of
the United States has been undermined by con
struction, and the interests of the South sacri
ficed by compromises, I can entertain no opin
ion that could favor either one or the other.
When the Missouri Compromise was adopted,
I believe a fatal breach wats made in the Con
stitution, and that the elements of the dominant
majority were then introduced into this govern
ment, ihich now assume to rule the destines of
this country. This measure had the sanction
of great names, and pure patriots. I neverthe
less think it a fatal error, influenced, perhaps,
by lights which time and events have shed upon
its operation, and which were not apparent to
those who adopted it. It was regarded, how
ever, as a part of the system of this government
for a. long time; and if it had been observed in
good- faith,- perhaps the South ought not to
Save disturbed it. But its spirit and principles.
have been notoriously disregarded and violated.
With this certainty before me, I would have
1eeh false to my own convictions, if I had been
Willing to adopt any compromise involving any
concession by the South. And I am not now
willing, by any opinion whlich I may express, or
any course of policy which I may pursue, to
give any sanction to the Compromise measures
of the last Congress. Time has not made
them more acceptable to me than they were at
They met with my opposition while they
were under discussion, and my protest after
they were passed-and my judgment can never
be reconeiled to approve them. They afford no
security to the South ag-aiost the agitation of
halls of Congress, and in the assemblies of the
people and Suate Legislatures of the non
slaveholding States-not only uncbecked and
uncontrolled, by compromises and platforms,
but, in every successive state of its aggression,
is ratified and sanctioned by them.
With regard to the admission of Ca-lifornia,
my views upon that subject have been frequent
ly expressed, and reinain unchanged. That
State having been admitted without precedent,
it has opened to the majority the power of
making and moulding States, rather thani ad
mitting new States into the Union according to
the Constitution. Justice amid candor, howev
er, require me to say, that California has no
temptaitions from interest, that I can see, to be
against the South on the doctrines of free
trade, and at present, perhaps, iione on the
subject of African slavery.
WVith these views, it is impossible that I canl
take any interest in the Presidential election, so
far as to give any positive countenance to the
doctrines and measures of the Compromise ;
and I cannot overlook or disregard the fact, that
both the candidates for the Presidency stand
upon the Compromise, as a part of their plat
form-each of the great parties having solemn
ly incorporated it into its political creed. I can
Dot abandon the principles upon which I based
my opposition to these measures, or approve
now, what I disapproved andl denounced a few
months ago. Notwithstanding my personal
regard for General Scott, aiid my admiration
for his high military fame, I am the very anti
pode of his school of pulities, and would be
compelled, if he were elected, to lake an act ive
part against his administration, if it should be
condubted upon the doctrines which lie main
tains, and guided by the associates with whom
he is allied. With General Pierce, 1 might have,
politically, nearer aflinities. In doctrine, he is a
strict constructionist, of the State Rights
school, and so far as it regards thme South, I
believe he has no prejudice or bigotry, and
would do his duty to her according to the Con
stitution. But both my experience and obser
Vation teach me, that it is in v-tin to look here
for the reform of this government, or to hope
for the security of the South as the result of a
Presidential election. The disease which we
would he~al is radical, and unless there be ap
plied some enforcible power to confine the
federal government within the sphere prescribed
by the Constitution, it must become an elective
despotism=. In my deliberate judgment, this
enforciblo power will never be found in any
Chief Magistrate that will ever be elected.
The power to regtulate commerce alone, wvhiich
may be so used as to exhaust the means of one
section to build up the prosperity of another,
unless controlled, will, like Aaron's rod, swal
low up all the rest.
These being my convictions, I do not desire
to see South Carolina absorbed in any organi
zation looking to a Presidential contest. If
she cannot be the champion of the whole South,
let her assume the humbler and more unpre
tending office of being the sentinel of her own
honor and interests, and the firm and consistent
friend-of- her natural allies. It may become her
duty to- vote in the approaching Presidential
election, and if so; that duty, though disagreea
ble it may be, should be performed but, in
doing so, I should be sorry to see our Stale
descend to wage an internecine wvar at home.
When the time to vote shall aitvey, let her take
choice of the alternative presented, and vote
for the candidate least offensive to herself re
spect and political' principles. Impressed as I
am at present, I tinmk the State should vote the
Democrat ticket, in preference to the Whig. It
is her duty to maintain that this is a confedera
y of sovereign States, instead of a consoli
dated empire, subject only to the will and wis
dom- of- a bare majority. I would not have
South Carolina to forget that she is one of
these sovereign States, and to suppose herself
bound to conform, in all things, to the policy of
parties in her sister Southern States; yet I I
think it is hor true policy, on questions of great
* and- vital interest, which involve the public I
-safety, not to wholly isolate herself from thmeI
Sttes with whomehe is most nearly identified.
n-the practice and- observance of this policy,
she may findi a motive and justification for
asting her vote in the approaching election for
President. In deciding upon her course, ehe
sh.u be gomened. not by those partisan feL
ings, which too often constitute the elements
which enter into a contest like that now before
the country, but by those high considerations
of patriotic duty and devotion to principle, to
which she is indebted for her present rank, po
sition, and consideration among the -States of
I am, dtar sir, with very great respect, your
obedient servant, A. P . BUTLER.

DIVISION OF PENDLETON.
We notice in the Anderson Gazette a petition
which is to be circulated in Anderson and Pick.
ens districts, praying the Legislature to alter the
Constitution of the State so as to divide Pen
dleton into two election districts. The reasons
set forth by this document for the desired change
are the following:
"Because, since the apportionment of repre.
sentation, to wit: by a treaty with the Chero
kee Indians, concluded in 1816, two hundred
and twenty thousand six hundred acres of ter.
ritory was acquired by the State, which, by sub
sequent amendment of the Constitution, wat
made a portion of Pendleton district, without v
corresponding equivalent in representation.
" Because, by reason of this large accession
of territory, it now contains nearly 100,000
acres more than any other electoral division ir
"Because, of the 280,385 white inhabitant:
of South Carolina, the large number of 26,229
being nearly the one-teuth part of the whole
reside in the electoral limits of Pendleton dis
triet, whilst she is now only allowed one forty
fifih part of the representative power of th<
State in the Senate.
"Because, if Pendleton district was dividei
into two election districts, the districts of An
derson and Pickens, respectively, would rank a
the fifth and sixth election districts in the Stati
in point of population.
" Because, in point of taxation, Anderson an(
Pickens districts are, respectively above th<
average of the political divisions of the State.
"Because, in all other respects, the districti
of Anderson and Pickens are independent o
each other, and this act alone is required t<
complete their separate organization, and elevat
them to the position of the other election dis
tricts of the State.
" Because the public convenience and the ne
cessity of preserving the harmony and goo(
feeling of the citizens of the two districts, re
quire that this division should be made; espe
cially as it is in strict accordance with justici
and political equalitv,and no infringement upo
the constitutional rights of others.
It will be recollected that the House of Rep
resentatives passed this bill at the last sessioi
by a large vote-yeas 101, nays 12. The Sen
ate had also given it two readings, but on the
second reading, had added an amendment to th<
effect that no present judicial district of th<
State should be divided into two or more jndi
cial districts, without the constitutional tnajority
in both Houses. This amendment was rejectei
by the House, and on its return to the Senati
in its original form, it was defeated b-v a vote 0
22 yeas to 18 nays; two-thirds of that body no
voting in the allirmative, the bill was lost.
The considerations above specified shoulk
have their weight in influencing the members o
the Senate to accord to the people of Pendletor
what they ask. The facts and statistics set flortI
by the petitioners show the propriety of thei1
prayer, and from the votes given in both house!
last session, we are inclined to believe the nex
Legislature will give the mefasure its as-sent
W~e do not think that the people of these tw<
large districts should be debarred from privi
leges which they consider their right, by an,
apprehension of contingencies that, may nieve
occur. We have all confidence in the potlitica
integrity and conservatism of thme people of th
upper districts, and therefore would dou nothin
to foster sectional jealousies. or to estranug
them from those whose interests it is the dut
of all to protect and maaintain.-South Carolin

The entire amount of gold in circuilat ioni
said to be ?48,000,000 ; of which th~e wear ain
waste is stated to be 3 1.2 per cent annnally, o

and manufactures is as follows:
In the United Kingdom...3,500,000
Other parts of Europe..1,600,000
United States.... ......... 500,000
In Birminigham alone there is a weekly con
sumption of gold for chains only, amounting t<
1,000 oz. The weekly consumption for gok
leaf in London is 400 oz.; in other places ii
Great Britain 184 oz.

so enttirely novel and interesting us to dererve a small

that shoiuild emerge. and in the Shanty a Mahogany
Collina brought up by a husband for his yet unifound
wife. There were two stands near by for the sale of
Lernonade, Oysters, Pies, Cigars arnd Tobacco; so
a uic-k is the spirit of trade to avail itself of an advan

While we were upon the ground the body of a lady

twdashore behirnd a boat, by a rope around her
waist. Shec wvas dre-ssid in a black silk dress, anid ag
diamond ring glittered upon her darkened linger. H~er
-jong loose hair floated tupon the wvater. Whether shte d
lad been young or old, fair, or the corttrary, beautiful
or phtini, no one couild connjecture, so hideously black-c
ene-d anal distorted was her countentane, aitd swollen ..

to gaze up~ona this dlistresasing spectacle, a man brought A
news that the collfin alluded to had fotind its occupant.

which proved mo be ihe one of which lie was in search."

?lEssas. EmI-ons :-The author of "A SEcEssioN
IsT TILL YE-r," hits seen with some surprise, your
comments upon the short article you did hin the
favor to publish a few weeks sine; and as he does
not choose to be made to occupy a false position to
wards Mt. PICKENs, le is under the necessity of
again troubling you for a small space in your col
tumns, for the purpose of correcting an error into
which you scom to have fallen.
A plain man, one unskilled in the niceties sand
subtleties of langutge, and untaught in that school
of diplomncy, a part of whose teaching is, that " lan
guage was given to men to conceal their thoughts,"
always uses such language as will best convey his
mieaning. Such a man is the atthor of " A SEcEs
SIONIST TILL YT," and such the language he en
dtavored to use in the article referred to. That lie
has been misunderstoyd, is unfortunate ; but lie
feels that it nust be attributed to your misfortune,
and not to any fault of his. For, if to speak of a
gentleman in terms of praise, and to eulogize his
talents and his virtues, be the language of irony and
sarcansm, then, indeed,is the English language with
out llealling, and the less honest people have to do
with it the better.
The writer of " A SF.cFnsoNIs-r TILL. YT," SC
far from insinuating that the " casual intimaey'
which exists between Gen. PalcE and Mr. PicK
Ess, should disqualify the latter for the office of
Senatur, actually adduced instances, in which this
"intimacy" with former Presidents, had failed te
seduce Mr. PicxENs from the service or his eon
stitauents ! Atnd he cat asstfre the Editors of the
Adcertiser, that however highly the people in their
" portion" of the State, may prize tle integrity and
honor of Mr. Ptcxexs, that at least a portion o
them in this "section" respect thenselres too high
ly to insinuate anything of the sort, or to makc
covert attacks upon the reputation or character o
Mr. PiCacNs, or any one else. He deemed th<
mtlentica, by " JonN LAftEs" and others, of thi;
at personal intinacy," as unfortunate, and if coming
fron friends of Mr. P., as imprulent ; for the rea
sun among maty others, (which is unnecessary t<

A large po'rtiona of the peoie of South Carolhina

"This bridge was crected in 1832-3, tupon

built of biack eyprtts timtber, and have stood
since thte bridtge was btuilt. Thecir reniewal wa

antd workmen were teagaged it that operattion,
and had succeede'd iaa replacing aboant haalf the

THE HUMIaMD TO MS Wa
I ask thee not to yield thy love,
For that even now is mine,
I ask thee not thy faith to prove,
Thy heart is truth's purest shrine,
Thou cans't not paint the lilly fair,
Nor gild the mine's pure gold
Nature has lined a richness there,
Which art can ne'er unfold.
But oh ! I have one poor request,
Sanetioned by gods and men
Thy power can give love a zest,
Say will you grant it then ?
She smiles assent-what is it-life
The favor now disclose;

DOR'S GOLD MINE.
We find the following- letter respecting this
extraordinary mine in the last Dahlonegah (Ga.)
OAx LAND GROVE, July 27, 1852.
DEAR nts:-I now set down to comply with
my promise to you when I last saw you, in
giving you a statement of the monithly opera
tions of Wmn. B. Dorn's gold mine in Abbeville
District, South Carolina:
In the month of March 8 hands yielded 28,430
In the month of April 8 hands yielded 17.172
In the month of May, 8 hands yielded 14,4201
In June and July up to the 23d 14,039
Making in all from the 1st of March last, to
the 23d inst. the sum of eighty-four thousand
sixty-one and at half dwts. with only eight hands,
and a small circle mill, propelled by two mules
which only pulverize tbout firteen bushels el
ore per day. I have no daubt that one of out
best pounding mills in Lumpkin in one day, in
such ore as this mine produces, would makc
twenty-five or thirty thousand dollars.
Thi vein widens as they go down and retnin
its usual richness. They are not yet withir
forty feet of water level. Should it pass watel
level and retain its prtsent size nnd rielints
the probability is that its end will never be
reached by the present generation. If the ridh
shoot thai he is now operating on should give
out at water level he has then got the best gold
mine that I know anything about. Tho vein
shows plaitly on the ,urface, a distance of three
quarters of a mile in length, and has been tested
in several places which slows a width of some
thing like four feet, and tests to be worth from
otto to two dollars per bushel, and seventy oi
eight feet of that above water level. Now jusi
itmagine to yourself a vein three quarters of a
ile in length, four feet wide and eighty feet to
waiter level, how long will it take eight handt
to exhaust it ? That of itself, to say nothin
of the rich .-hoot they are now operating on, i:
a large fortune, if the proper machinery wa
applied. There are a great many visiters daily
frotn all parts of the country. You have nevi
seen, I venture to say, such an excitement it
your life about gold, as prevails here. I do no
think there will be many rocks left unturr.et
and broken open by Christmas next in Edgefiekt
Distritt-very near every person seems to bi
on the look out for the precious metal. Mr
Dorn, in addition to his rich vein, has tw<
branches of first rate deposit mining ground.
I have nmde several eximiniations in theoun
other place that I thintk will pay. The coutntr3
grenerally. is too level for a deposit, so if an:
of otnr citizens should have a notion to coi
Shere for thte purpose of deposit mining tell thten
to stamy away. Yours, truly,
THE New York Herald, of the 10th inst,
Igives thte following birds-eye view and pamssing
comments on the subject of the fisheries:
" The affair seems to assume a mote serion:
aspect every day; and, unless a great deal o
caution is exercised by. both governments, thxi
-mm s-fut'erFs e's our provin
cial neighbors, may really termitnate more seri
ously thtn was~ at first apprehended. If the
statenment of thte passengers and crew of the
Americnn schooner Lion, of Brookhaven, whtiel
was seized off Prince Edward Island, is correct
the British are certnimily enarrying tiings rtthe
beyond their proper limits. Those on board lhb
Lion at the time, state that she was becnlmed
and fully three nijles from the lhnd. This mus
be inqnired into with promptness, and if the
story is correct,shte rmtst be released. Accordinj
to a despatch from Boston, another schoonet
the Florida, was captured and taken into Chnr
lottetown, on the 5th inst. By thme way, this
subject will be the order of the day in ite Uni

ExTRAORDNAnY FFnoelTY OF A IloRS.-A
case ot feroeity in a horse rarely equalled has
given rise to law p'roecediregs before the courts
of Rotten, France. Ott the 24th of November
last, a farmer natmed Blanchard, of Verelire,
(Euire.) p)ossess'ed a horse, and in his presence,
and wvith his consent, a horse-dealer named
Lavoipaierret sold it to a farmer named Delaise
ment, of Corney. The next dhay Blanchard told
a yentng main in htis service to convey the horse
to Delaisernaemft. The latter, however, refused
to receive it, un the ground that Ihe had learned
that it was tkeions and dangcrous. Itt returning,
the horse several times attempted to throw the
youtng tman, and at lensgth,~ becoming qutite fero
ious at the restraint which the rider imposed on
him, he baounded ereet in the air, and succeeded
itt getting him off his back. Thre anim~al then

himself as ivell as he was able, but the horse

When lie arrivcd,his mouth was stained with
blood, and bits of flesha were still adhering to it.
The young man, who was so dreadfully treated,
had to have his eg amputaited. He subsequent
ly brought ani act ion against Blanchard, Delaise

Our country takes of Brazil one-half of its im

all of which enters our ports free of duty. Bra.
zil, however, imposesa duty of 30percentupon.
the flour from the United States, 45 per cent on
our furniture, 150 per cent on carriages, and
admits nothing under 30 per cent.' Mr. Sehe'nek,
our present minister to that country, has enides4 7
