In accordance with the new Census, the Leg

of the old deiegation, we believe, will he can

chosen vithotpt opposition.
Mr. BegvY, it is understood, retires. and we
observe in the last Abbeville tnnevr that the
Hon. F. W. PCrKEss is brought fovward for the
vacancy. lie has altso been nominated in Edge
field, the District of his residence. We are far
from wishing to interfere in such matters, but
we cannot help rejoicing at seeing this distin
guished Carolinian named for a seat in Congress,
where he has in former years shone atuong the
most brilliant and able defenders of the pririci
pies and cause of the State. We hope this call
to re-enter the public service, will be favorably
responded to by Col PIc16E.". His long ex
perience in polities, and- his long. servire at
Washington, would give weight to m delega
tion, and fill the void occasioned by the re
tiromenit of Mr. BURT.
The circumstance that, more than any other,
has lowered the dignity and undermined the au
thority of the House of Representatives, is tie
practice, especially at the North, of perpetually
changing their Representatives: so that each
new Congress is composed of a disproportion
ate number of men who understand neither the
rules of legislation nor the politics of the coun
try, and whose whole course is devoted to ob
jects as ephemeral as their tenure of oflice. It
it devoutly to be hoped that this principle of
" rotation" will never be introduced into Sorth
Carolinaand that the time mnlay iever come when
any portion of her citizens shall consider it an
objection to a candidate, that lie has been al
ready crowned with distinction, and lars gone

SOUTHER N FACTS.-We publisht tho following
" fsae~ for the next edition-of Uncle Tom's Cab

There died lately in a lower coutnty of Virgin
ia, a mulatto man 'who had been anttumitted by
hia master, and who was, unader our law, one, of
those persons who wvas permitted to remain in
V irginia. 1-is muaster, hal, with his liberty, left
him a respectable property, and this mani, by in
austrv. accumulated an estarte of $25,000. He
h.ai purchased hais wife, who was a slave, and his
chijldren were, therefore,.his own prope'rty, as'
well ais his wife.
Falling~ into bad heatlth, he went to Philatdel

that his health wats worse than hte thought, and
that he could riot live, he wrote to a relative of
has old master to come otn for him, which this
gentlemant did, antd stayed with hinm,and brouaght
him back to Virginia at his request. He died
.ihortly after his retutrn, not long sincee, and by
his tlrt will left alil his estate to tis gentlema~n,
as well as hris wvife and childretn, wvhro are thtus
thre slaves or his friend, trutsting of course that
he would care for them, and provide for them.
He was tin intelligent, wealthy man? whlo knew
the conditiotn of colored people itt the Northern
Sates, th-at prefcrrcd to leave his wife and chtii
drena and all his property to a whlite man, to send
itng thtem out of the State, to live as free persons
withr a finue estate.
T1heseo are notariotus and recorded facts, and
can be proved if detnied; and there are manty

which might be m-ade public, to lput to shamne the

when he will harve an opportunity of joining
with other memibers of thte Sena-te in welcoming

its perusal awakened in our bosom sensations of pride
and satisfaction. And we lay it befre our readers,
tnder the belief that they too will be similarly affect

Without meaning any disparagement of other as.

that Col. Picirrs should be our next Representative
in Congress. But lie has thought proper to decline a
contest for that position. And, inasmuch as lie cannot

SENATOR MASON UPON CUBA,
Tur Senate Chamber of the Union has been
somewhat enlivened, at an enrly stage of the present
se.*ion, by a debate arising upon that portion of
President Ftl.LsonE's Message which refers to Cuba.
Among others, Mr. MAsox, of Virginia, participated
in the discussion, advocating non-interference with
the rights of Spnin in the matter, but determined
opposition to any attempt, on the part of any other
government whatever, to gain possession of this
great prize, by treaty or otherwise.
The Senator from Virginia take. the high and, as
we conceive, the only tenable ground, that "any
attempt, whether made by individuals In violation of
the laws of their country, or by the Government in
its politic capacity, to dismember Cuba from Spain,
would tarnish,forever iarnilsh, our national fanie."
And yet he gives it as his opinion that " in the full
ness of time the fruit will ripen and fall from its
parent stem." In another place he uses still stronger
terms. Granting that Cuba may not he ours in this
generation, nor even in the next, he still feels confi
deat that " come to us it will, (sooner or later,) just
,aA certainly as the world revolves on its axis." M1r.
MASoN then, (after differing distinctly with the
President as to the impolicy of annexing Cuba under
any circumstances,) concludes by asserting, that
" whenever the hour comes, when, in good faith, and
with due regard to national honor, we can incorpor
ate Cuba as one of these United States, it will be
done and Europe may find it best to hold her peace."
Fer our own, part, we are gradually coming to the
conclusion that, after all, the Cuba furor will resem
ble the Kosse'rt fermentation in one point at least
which is, that it wll turn out to he " all smoke and
no fire." Iere now is a Southern Senator, announc
ing to the country his attitude upon this question, and
the cue will lie taken, doubtless, by the advocates ef
Southern Rights generally. And what in that atti.
tude ! A right and honorable one, beyond question.
But what does it amount to. in view of the develp
ment of any progressive steps towards the attainment
of this stronghold ? Let us briefly examine. First,
Cuba (it is announced) is not our property hot Spain's.
Right enough, but certainly a proposition familiar to
every school-boy. Secondly, we tnmst not snatch
Cuba from Spain, for the very good reason that we
have no earthly right to do so. Neither is this any
new interpretation of international law. Thirdly,
we must have patience. " Watch and wait" is now
the generally adopted Southern maxim. And, fourth
ly, in a few generations, (fiery Fillibusteros, attend!)
in a few generations (when the hot blood of 1853,
that flows so ad'illy at the thought of graspitg
Spanish wealth, shall have been chilled in death)-in
a few generations, (when a re-production of the same
fervor in the year tineteen hndired and one'shall
have fallen a victim to the same sickening disap
joiistinent)-yes, in a few generations, Caha itast be
ours. At least, so says 31r. MasoN. But, with all
possible respect for this dittinguished. Virginian's
opinions, we itst regard even this well-pruvided
remark of his in the light of a bare and unsupported
assertion. To allow it the merit of prophecy, would
he going a little further than our judgenient can in
any w ibe sanction.
Because, there is no proof wiatever that Spain has
the most remote intention of parting with Cuba, to
any government, on any teirs. If she had, there
are the three great powers of England, France and
the United States, each one of them standing ready,
with all its means, to defeat any attempt, on the part
of either of the others, to reduce into possessian this
much-coveted "Queen of the Antilles." Great
Britain and France, with their immense walth and
power, their contiguity to and direct influence over
old Spain, can always succeed in preventing a ces
sion to the Uunited States. On the other hand, it is
by no means probable. that either of thema will ef fect
the acqui.-ition, with a full knowledge that a blowldy
strtiggle nith Brother Jonathan is to be the certain
conseqpuence. JIIow, then, it can be othierwsise than
that uha muist still remain in statu guo, for at long
and indefinite period of time, we arc at a loss to
It is thought that some such causes of offence, as
recently transpired at tjie port of flavana, will soon
give us the pretext, and that the rest will be easy
enought. This we regard as the ilimsiest chtance
imaginable. Spain is now ftully awake to eur inten
tions, and will certainly be on her guard for the
future. It woiuld be placing a poor estimate upon
event Spanish diplomacy to suppose that we will ever
again be allowed.,to occuapy any thing like the van.
age ground in collisions of this kind.
Thlere is another pirospect, however, of a rather
more hioperful character than the rest; which is, that
Cutba may throw off the Spanish Yoke, declare her
Independence, accept our rccognitione of thte sanme,
and eventually knock for admiittance into our Union.
This would be grand. It would give tts the rig~mt,
(and we already have the might) to receive anid p
tect the darlitng beatity against a world in' arms.
Yet even this is among those dim and undefined
visions which lie entirely in the womb of the future.
Upon the whole, althiought we desire the acquisi
tion of Cuha as much as most people, we yet regard
all ho'pes of i-ts speedy' accomplishmnent as partaking
much.l mnre of fancy and enthusiasm than of either
reason or jutdgmtent.

be some good sense in prtihiting intermarriage anitg
blood relations, for this, is unquestionably one of the
most fruitful causes of idioey and other evils. But
the interdiction unpltd in'the above qcry, strikes us
as being fully as absurd as we had suliosed it to be
Tue Cheraw Gu:ctte oflers sonme very well-timed

Though varied aid interesting " it is designed," says
the Ga:ette, "to stab while it entertain-." The ob
jectionahle point is its etnity to our Southern system
of servitude. Without having seen the book, we are
yet prepared to accept the Ga:cte's vie w of it, as our
own, and to caution our readers against etneourtgiing
its sale. Do we not see continually the great impor

ourselves to make this tdea one of our fixed South

Mr. Stockler, of the Aldrich Female Seminnry, pro
poses to form a singing class among such ladies tnd
gentlemen of this plhace and its vicinity as may desire
imiprovemtent in that degartment of the Finie Arts.
Mr. S. is an uncommonly capable instructor, as we
undlerstatd, and it is hoped that mtany will take ad
vantage of the opportunity lie no0w presents. We

made good by proper 'tr.\inting, of several, alre-ady

TunE Concord Patriot, (which paper is published
near General PtEitcE's residetice atid speaks in this
instance as one havitng authority) anniotuces that the
President Elect is fuilly deteriniined to judge for him
self in regard to the men who shall comtpose~ his
Cabinet. (Etcellent.) TIhe States rare remiinded that
all of them cannot be represented therein. (Astonish
ing revelation !) And, what wvill be mnure interesting
to the rank and file of the Great Unterrified, is the
assertion thatt there will be ino proscription of mien
because they have in tinmes past belitnged to this or
that section. of Demoeracy. 'The Presidenitial "Sun
shall shinte upon the righteotus anid thte unirighteouts,'"
so theynare stamped with the broad D;-moeratic seal1.
