DEMOCRACY TRIUMPHANT. WHAT NEXT?
Faom the various items of election intelligenee
received by the late mails, we gather enough to ren
der it certain that FRANKLIN PIacs has been
successful in reaching the Presidential Chair. And
we must take the opportunity to say that we are as
much gratified by his election as we could have been
by that of any man North of the Potomae. Our
Congressional Records bear most ample testimony to
the fact that lie has ever stood boldly for It for entire
non-interference with the domestic institutions of
Che South-in short, that he has invariably voted
and acted, in regard to this question especially, with
our own Calhotm, Without exaggeration, it may be
-aid that but few, even of our Southern politicians,
have spoken more decidedly or voted more regularly
,.n the side of Southern interests than has FRANKLIN
PItECE from the remote Northern State of New
Hampshire. In addition to this degree of political
soundness, it is something cheering to hnow (as we
do from information variously derived) that he, who
is to occupy the highest and most influential position
in the United States for the next four years, is a man.
not only of strong mental ability, but of high princi
ple and noble impulses-in other words, that while in
piossession of ani intellect saflicient for the skillful
guidance of the helm of State, he ha3s a heart 1.rge
andi liberal enough to crnfrie hins to appreciate the
right and to purtie it with dteisive envegy. To know
then that we are to have at tihe head of our govern.
auent a man of anch qualific'ationis is, we repeat,
cause of congramiulntion. It is certainly i consum
m ion which, sis tumithos ago, could scarcely have
heeni expected. rie mere triumph of the I)eino
cratic Party is not the point which we desire to
emnphasize: for that has all along been certain enough
-hut thu placing of one in the lead of our affairs.
who thoroughly sympathizes with our section and has
never lievitated to espouse our cause with generous
enthusiasm, is an indiention of retrrning reason, at
least in the Democratie ranks, which should not be
,lightingly regarded by the people of the South.
FaAsmim .tN PtEscr is our avowed friend. Ie has
just passed through the ordeal of a Presidential can.

up-mo Iis hanner, unretracted, unmodified. We have
every reason tip b.-ieve that lie will remain faithful
to his antecedents. We have grounds to hope that
the tendency of his adminiistration will be to give the
Southern States that " equality in the Union," which

. RE-DISTRICTING THE STATE.
TirE duty of re-arranging otr Congressional Dis
tricts devolves upon our present Iegislature, and, be
ing the work of thelapproachinig Session, will be dis
charged now in a few weeks. It is a business which
should be well considered, and which should be regu
lated, as nearly as possible, in accordance iwiihh the
wishes of the various Districts. As uric means of
ascertaining these wishes, we would suggest that the
Press of the State should signify, at as early a day as
possible, what each one regards as being the prefer
ence of the section it represents. Soms general ex
pression, to this efect, might be of considerable aid
to those gentlemen who may undertake the prepara.
tion of plans to be aibmitted for adoption, and des
patch might thus take the place of prolonged confu
sion. For. ourselves, we are impelled, by what we
feel and know to be the desire of many of our fellow.
citizens, to express our preference briefly and can
The Congressional District we desire is one made
up of the four Districts, Laureus, Newberry, Abbe
ville and Edgefield. It is unnecessary to say that we
mean no disrespect to Lexington by this preference.
We would willingly be associated with old Saxe
Gotha, dial riot our being so involve an extension of
our Congressional District which wotud place its ex
tremes unduly distant front earl other. The arrange.
inent we propose above is recommendrd, we thitnk,
by several considerations. First, it would give us a de.
gree of compactness wtld c irtiguity. othernise unat.
tainable. Secondly, it Aoubl cotmrprise a pecunharly
hominigenrouts population. Thirlly, it would be pro.
ductive of greater harmony and satisfaction frtom the
fact that there i4 .dnost coinstant interoirse bet weeti
the citizens of these tramed Districts, and there would
consequently prevail amongst us a better understand
ing. grealer liberality towards each other and a tie
cessarily higher tone fitan we could hipe for under
any other arrangement. Fourthly, these Districts
make up what has been known since the days of ti
tevolution as the Old '96 District, and the associa
tiis which hang tarontid that hallowed remienibranec
woa!d be as liiks to bind us together for all ine.
Thieee reasons, superadded to tie fact th:,t it is, be.
yoid a doubt, the desire of these Districts to be tir
mited, indtice us to present the combin:i-in as una
eminently proper to he made by our Legislature, amk
we respectfully reguest it at their hands.
We have understood that the interests and pros
pects of different Congress-men will probably have
sIme bearing otn the arrangement of the ne w Dirtriets
To this we beg leave to enter our most earnest ob.
jection. This remodtelling is not Ihr the advairen1w
of individual interests, nor is it for this generatior
alone. It is for the people's advantage anti the State'
futurer as well as present well-being. And we thinal
it shiould be etersined with reference to these con
