A CURENT FRAUD. I
We find the following paragrauph running the
rounds of a certain class of. newspapers. It re- I
fers to the Fugitive Slave law:
-"rhe South has gained nothing but a loss by
this law. It was a stupid blunder on the part
of Southern statesmen. The value of the slave
lost is eaten tup if capture follows, while hatred
to the institution abroad and oppolsitiont to it at
home, are increased by its hard features a nd the
barbarous enforcement <f them."'-Ci,:rleston
We shall not say that such a paragraph never
appeared in- the Mercury, though we have no
recollection of it, and at least can assert that the
language at the close has nut now, and never
had, the approval of any one connected with the
editorship of this journal. .lif it ever appeared
in this paper it was by accident, and during the a
heated controversy that immiediaitely followed a
the Compromise acts. To quote it as pairt of I
the current opinion of-the day, is to practice a
gross imposition on the public. Concedingv the
right of Congress to execute that provision of I
the Constitution, we have never doubted that
the law was in form and substance a just and
proper law. Our objections to it were that it
would not and could not be executed, except min
so inconsiderable a number of caises and at such
cost and peril as to deprive it of its all imupor
tance to the interests of the Southern planters;
while. on the other haund, it assumed to be so
complete and effective a remedy, that its cont
cession was made an excuse by Southern tritm
mers for surrendering the most important inter- d
ests of their constituetnts and dooming thbe South
to hopeless weakness and inferiority in the
.But the use which is made of the paragraph
above quoted, is not the least curious part of
the fraud. As we said, if it ever did, by chance,
appear in the Mercury, it was some three yearsv
ago, when we were urgtng secesson as the only
way to save the south from the anti-slavery ag
gressions of the north, It is now quoted by
such papers as the Richmond Examiner, to prove
that the Mercury has lowered its tone on thed
slavery question, in compliment to the 'Presi-a
dent's alleged league with the free-soilers! Real- a
-ly these small politicians are about the coarsest, a
and least interesting specimens of the mounte- c
bank that even this juggling age can show.
-The Examiner need not be in doubt'as to the p
rounds of our support of the Adnministration. f
Ve have thorough cotnfidence in the President's I
good faith on the slavery question. We believe a
the Administration is favorable to free trade and
ecoomcal e~penditure, and will do what it can r
in that direction. Finally, we cannot but ac
knowledge that it is a working Administration,
and has put the affairs of the several depart ments *
n better condition than they have been for mah
ny years. Tbese are sufficient reasons for that
general support which we offer to the Admmds
tration. If the Examiner can find as goqd rea. a
vsons for opposing it, we shatll be glad to htear
them-Cha~e~OU Mrcur. t

DEATH OF MR. JOHN VRASER.-WC are pain
ed to announce the death of this old and honor
ed Merchant, which occurred on Monday. Mr.
Fraser was over seventy-five vears of age, and
w:.s, with a single exception, the oldest Mer
chant in Charlestor. He was born in Inverness,
Scotland, of highly reputable parentage, and re
ceived a good education in his native country.
le prepared for his after career in one of the.
lirat Commercial iouses of London. nod came
to this countrv in 1801. Atbout 1803 he wen
into buliness iunder the firm of Men:.is and Frat
ser, afterwards Cuit antid Fraser, and finally
Jnhn Frnser and Co. by which title it hay been
known le this ti:ne. Fur just half a century,
then, 11r. Fraser has been an es:tblished Mer.
ehmn; in Charleaton. and for a large portion of
that time he has hell rank among the fi:st.
In bu.,ines he was systematic, sagacious and
governeul by the highest sense of commercial
honor. His word was ever as good as his bond,
and in his whole h.log career no one has had to
e:ill twice on him for a just debt, nor has lie iev
er had a note protested.
In all the telations of life Mr. Fraser main
tained an unsullied reputation, nnd ripe in years,
ho descends to le grave amidst the regrets of
a whole community. to whom his stecessful
career has been an honor and a benefit.-Char
THE CoTToN Cio.-Mr. W. P. Wright, a

'"leceipts at the ports continue to fall off; the
deuri:sue now amounts to 432,000 bales. and on
Satrday last the deicit, as made up in New
Orle:nus, was 465.000 bales. It is quite pissi
ble, owing to the low state of varinis Sou:hern
rivers, very few of which ire in navigable coidi
tion, thait the teliit may reach 650,000 bales or
even ntire, and it is also probable that the m:.xi
umi to decrease when attained may dinioiih very
slowly fir mi any weeks there.ter. The large
and increasing deficit in receipts as compared
with last Valr give contidence to parties whoa.e
