CUBA AND THE SOUTH.
One of the consideratione that natuarally
should influence opinion at the South, is that,
with the possession of Cuba, Spain is a slave
holding State, having interests and sympathies
in some degree idettical with our'. Like the
South, she tmust be opposed to that mischievots
Tegrophilism wnich has so deeply infreted West
ern Europe, and the Northern States, and thus
Spain breaks that plt:lanx of aggressive opion
ion, which threatens in so many ways to d islurb
the relations of peace. Naturally, SpAin is our
ally, and her interests would eecure her to us as
a friend. Our intercourse and trade with Ch b:t
would be favored beyond that (if States fiiile
to her on the questioi of slavery : and wif It finn
confidence in our friend.hip, the Scoth would be
counted the best safegu-trd for the perservation
of the industrial institutions ~f that great~td
Deprive Spain of Cuba, and she harno longer
any interest in the support of slavery. We tlhrow
into the ranks of our enemies the only nation of
Europe that now has atny svnpathy with our
cause, ani we add to the hostility of all by giv
ing a proof of an aggressive, grloing spirit, blin
ded, by the love of acquisition, to the comuonest
laws of right and wrong,and the plainest duties
of good neighborhood.
We are easting away all the advantages we,
might ea.ily secure, through the peaceable pos
4essiotn of tuba by Spain. Commercial rela
tions are already shaken. The tendency toward,
social intercourse with the South, which a few
years since was manifest was now quite cheked.
We are looked upon by the body of the Cuban
people as enemtios, watching opportunity to in,.
vade their soil, plunder their property, aitd break
up all their relations of social quiet. We oiv-r
hang them with an ever threateting danger. We
make them feel insecure in all their possessions.
The value of property must speedily feel the
effect of this state of things: and of all proper
ty none will be so sensitive to the b'ight of tlis
incessant disquiet, as the properly it slaves, anl
in the lands cultivated by them. Is it not the
height of political madness for the people of the
South to join in these treacherous demonstra
tions, the first disastrous effect of which ttust
fall upon that institution in the preservation of
which they are so deeply interested, and the I
strengthening of which is the very motive by
which they are urged into this most unatccounta
ble course !
It is certinly possible to drive Spain from thme
possession of Cuba by persisting in this couirse
of hostilily. Spain is poor at honme, atnd what
ever hter pride mighmt dictamte, necess'ity woutl at
last cnmpel hier to relintqutih a possession which
could no longer defray the cost otf its defence.
The United States, or somne othter ntation, mnight
then step into her placee. But fo)r thte Southm,
what sort of possession woutld it be, thus cover
ed with dearth, and filled with anareby, by thte
process through whieb it had beent obtaitned ? Its
slaves turned loose for want of pronitable emn

CVBA AND THE SOUTH.
W. copy this week from the Charleston Mercury
an article under the aiove caption to- wfiich we in
vite the special attention of our readers. The views
therein taken and the facts therein set forth are well
calculated to check the fillibustering propensitie of
Southerners. That Cuba is a prize, whetfier *e
consider the fertility of her soil, the richness of hier
productions or the peciliar advantages of her pouiiio,
cannot be denied. But that this prize is the rightfet
property of Spain is equally incontestible. And we
have ever regarded that rapacity which would seek
to seize upon this Island contrary to all international
law and with utter disregard of the commonest prin
ciples of justice, as being semi-barbarous in its char
arter, to say the least of it. Still, we are far from
being indifferent to the annexation of Cuba to our
Confederacy. if that event can over be brought
about by a fair and honorable course of proceeding.
Trute, the draw-backs upon the advantages, which it
is generally supposed would result therefrom, are not
inconsiderable. On the contrary they are such as
might requiro time and s4illful legislation to remove.
But it occurs to our mind at present that they are by
no means insurmountable. Once rightfully ours,
CNa would be speedily swarmed with the Anglo
American race, which. for energy and enterprise is
peraips ahead of even the pure Anglo-Saxon. Our
social and poli tical principles, under the direction of
such propagandists as would crowd that favored
region, would become dominant in a short time.
Twenty five years could scarcely pass by before the
last remnatnt of Spanish institutions would he dis
plhced forever. IHistory tenches us that in all such
political amalgamiations the weaker race has ever
been merged in the stronger. That it would so re
suit itn this instance cannot be reasonably doutibted.
)in fiet, if the excevsive inferiority of the old inhnbi
tants to the new-comers would have any effect in
iastening this end (as it undoubtedly would,) it may
well be questioned whether there is now on record a
chamnge of national character so rapid or complete as
would be exhibited in Americanized Cuba. As to
the assimilation of the races then, we imagine there
is no sufficient ground to apprehend the least danger
from that cause to our Republican principles or our
Republican manners. Even if it should impart a
slight Caustillian touch to the latter it might not be
But, as to the influence of this measure upon tie
pe-t:liar interests of the Southern States, our concliu
sions are not altogether as deflnite or an satisfactory
as upon the more genernI point. It is with reference
to thiog consideration that we lay before our readers
the remarks of the Mercury upon this subject. The
dangers un hiel our respected co-temporary regarls as
lying before us in that quarter are certainly not imi
aginary, although to our view rather magnified. We
do not desigi at this time to argue the question with
him. Our object is simply to suggest one or two
reflections which may tenad to modify some of his

With the Mercury's views as to the impolicy (to
say nothming of the injustice) of ofTectinig the acquisi
tion of Cuba by lawless and treacherous meanis wve
iave indicated above our entire concurrence. They

us to be very cleaur that if once the foot of American
power were pimanted, in a properly authorized manner,
upon this valuable posseision, there wvould soon be
an end of whatever turbulence mighit at first be dis
glayd. It is underrating thme over-awveing power of
tihe Amemricenn government to think othetrwise. If
South (:arlina, with all her ehivalry, dared not

Southmerner's. It presenats a real diflicuhmy which it
would be well for every otie to comnsider gravely be
fore crening to a definuite conicluasion upon this impor
taut subject. W~e confess that we are unable to clear
itp the obistructionms presemnted as satisfactorily as we
e-muidm desire to do. Our hope of betnefit would lbe
feemded upon thte belief, first, that Cuba would he

REPORTS OF,THE ATFDIIKY-GENERAL
Wi are indebted to the kind attention of our Rop
resentative, Dr. W. S. MOiLrYy, for several interest
ing pamphlets, among which are two Reports to His
Excellency, Mot. MFANS, Iby L. W. IIAYsE, Attorney
General of South Carolina.
One of these Reptorts - ni fl0te.sibject of the Au
gusta Bridge and the Navigation of the. Savannah
river. It is a full, explicit and satisfactory document,
reflecting much credit uponits talented author. Ile
argues against the claim, which lhns been set up by
some of the citizens of Georgia and advocated by a
portion of the Georgia Press, tothe exclusive jurisdic
fill of the State of .Georgia over the waters of the
Savannah, assigning low-water mark on the Carolina
side as the boundary between the. two States. He
shows that the Constitution of Georgia adopted in
1798, in accordance with theaConvention concluded
between the two States in 1707,?did not pretend to
assert any such exclusive righti, hii only claimed as
the boundary line, the Northern Branch or Stream
.of the Savannah, reserving all the Islands to the State
of Georgia. It is admitted.tlat a-certain Act of the
Georgia Legislature (1783) uses the expression "along
the North side tkereof;" lst,.this being the only time
it has been used, and teing linconsistent with the
terms of the first charter trp Lord PERCIvAl. JAMES
OuiaZTuorg and others, of their surrender to the
crown and of every other royal conmmfikin, and not
having been reiterated by the Georgia Legiotlature or
alluded to by the Convention of Oeaufort, it is very
justly pronounced "nugatory."
This point being established, it is only necessary to
show that the common lawprinciple," that proprie.
tore, with a stream dividing'them, own usque, ad.ilus
aque (to the middle of tb it'eeem,) applies to the
boundaries between natio'ns. Thie propokion the
Attorney General establishes conelnsively by the
force of such high authorities as VArEL, WttIAToN
and Chief Justice 31A asar.LL. "Territorially then,'
to use the language of the Report, " South Carolina
is in effect declared to be bounded (on the West) by a
thread in the middle of the stream (Snvanneah,)
where there is but one stream, but which thread (i
the case of the intervention of islands) deflects to.
wards her own shore, takes the middle of thee momt
Northern channel and excludis the Islands." Under
these views, it seems perfectly clear that no charter
of the Augusta Bridge, or any other bridge pas-ing
over the thread of the Stream, can be valid which
has not thee concurrent sanction of both States.
The argument is howeveriade still sironger by the
incontestible proor, presented in tlW articles of the
Convention of Beaufort, that the Savannah river ham
been made (independent of all other consideritions o1
right) a common hightway.'. equally free to the citi.
zens of both Stated." That neither. State then ham
the right to obstruct the .navigation (if thee channel
and that a bridge is such an - obstructiori, are pointit
whiech the Reporf substantiates by an irresistible
weight of authorities.,
Upon the whole, it does. seent to us that every
Georgian, who will read ihe argument of Col.
IIAYNE with attention, will :come to the conclusion
that, in this matter, each State mtt-look to the " co
operation of the other, and to efect such a result she
can only address herself to the comity and enlight
ened self-interest of her co-terminous sister."
Since writing the above, we have been informed
that Gov. Conn, (of Georgii, has written a letter ir
which lee says that thee true language of the original
charter from King GEoaiGE was that the boundar)
line should run " along the- most Northern part" oi
the Savannah river. Westill'thitk that the Conven
tion of Benifort settles theW'int, maintained by oui
Attorney General, indisputa6y.

We are not Masons nor the sons of Maeons-the

Discouruling caf the imperfections of man, as an ar
gement whey wec should judge cach other charitably,
and band together feir mutual aid and comfort, the
"lerfection and morality are inconmpatible; anal
as the whole cannot exceed in purity the constitulent
elements of its parts, the work, of man-real inde

his heofty muonuaments, or his beneevehent institutions,

" Contentced then must we remain wvith the omm

In answer to this question we make the following
statement which is as correct as we have, been able
to make it from a rapid survey of our advertising
About eight thousand acres of the Land adver
tised and about one hundred and eighty of the ne
groes are sold by orders from the Court of Equity
and the Court of Ordinary, for partition atnong the
legatees of the deceased owners.
Sone three or four hundred acres of land and
twenty or thirty negroes are advertised for debt.
Five hundred acres of Land, one hlotel, two houses
antd lots, a mill tract and fifty negroes are advertised
by gentlemen wishing to remove to Texas nnd
Florida. The owners have a plenty of property left
One flotel is sold for disolution of co-partnership,
both partners perfectly good and fixed residents of
the Distriet. Seven hundred and eighty-eight neres
of land are advertised by the Plank toad Company,
which is doiing a splendid business. Another Hlotel
arid several lots are advertised to be sold, on acconnt
of thme present Proprietor's dissatisfaction with the
business. We know no other reason.
We may have ounkmed some sales, but they would
not materially vary the above statement. Each one
