TE RIGHT OF BECESUION' no
Quite a lengthy discussion of this subject has
been going on between the Courier and News; f
and latterly, the Edgefield Adeertiser and the
former, have had an amusing tilt on the same
battle'field. We have hitherto refrained from
mentioning the centest, because we thought, and Di
still think, that it will all end in smoke. The fol
question has long been settled in favor of the x
right of secessien, and the eloquence of the Cou
rier can never overturn that firm-fixed opinion.
But it resembles too much the metaphysical
jargon of the school-men, to begin at this late Ti
day the discussion of the abstract right of seces- in
sion. Were the right established incontroverti- T1
bly, "Father Yeadon" would next object to the s1
practicability of exercising it. Were he driven ss
from this position, "the old man eloquent"
would find an Asylum in a Platonic Love of the th
Union, a phantasy of the brain, an imaginary 0
she-Cupid who directs the headless arrows of the
Courier. If there was any stopping place to
the retrogade movement, we could patiently
await the issue. But if we wish to unite the a i
South, and promote her interests, there is one gr
common ground on which we all can stand. do
There is one right which even sophistry cannot ob
deny us, the right of Rebellion. That right rio
cannot be refused us, without casting an impu- C
tation on our heroic ancestry and on that long
list of bright names which history immortalizes P'
as synonymes of heroism and patriotism.
The State-Rights party can find a sanction be
for their politics under the right of secession;
the Union party, if they have any scruples of
conscience about the existence of such an ab
stract right, can co-operate with them and dis- ~
pay their heroism under the right of Rebellion, hi
Tose craven spirits, who have determined to re
endure every outrage and oppression must con- Pt
tinue as heretofore to " charm with the whistle al
of a name," themselves and their deluded fol- wi
lowers. The only question then, worth afig, is
the expediency of a separation of the Union, and
if the Courier and the Neras, wish a theme .
"worthy of their steel"-pens, let them estimate '
the value of that Union. We believe firml in a'
the dogma of the sage Bentham, that utilt is
the only safe' and sound basie of ' eilation. of
Once contine a pepei what direct.on their ts
interests lie, and tedifference between " twee- hi
dledum and tweedledee" vanishes instantly. It ki
is a sickly patriotism that inveighs against cal
culating the value of the Union, and chivalry hi
on stilts that effects to treat nations like indi
viduals, and act the mock-heroic at every viola- P
tion of an imaginary code of honor. If the ~
"governmental organization" which our fore- P1
fathers have handed down to us, has failed to "
secure that pence and happiness to the North fe
and South, which they intended to secure to ha
them, what fools we are to debate about the 51
propriety or the right - of making a change for d,
Instead of displaying a laudable reverence for
our forefathers, we should be disgracing themby .
our ignorance and imbecility. When convine
that they were oppressed-that the laws of the
old world were fettering the genius of the new,
our forefathers did not stop to debate the idle k:
question of a right to secede or rebel-which
ever term sounds the best " to ears polite" cc
They felt that heaven had never sanctioned *l
and never would sanction, the plundering of bi
any people, whether done opely or perpetrated of
under the fiction of legal right, and in that be- hi
lief, they were strong. But even then, " when hc
the souls of men were tried" there were many Ci
who preferred the "glorious Union" with Great
Britain to independence out of it. If the peo
ple of the South think themselves oppressed, nm
if she is convinced that the civilization and ge
nius of the two sections of the country require
different laws, if she can direct her destinies to
her own advantage independent of the North,
then say we, that the right of secession is clear
ly made out and the expediency of it incontro
vertibly established. Like the right of Revo
lutiog this right may be disputed at the point
of the bayonet, but the blood of millions can
not wash it away.
We refrain from any nice distinctions on this
subject, since it is an easy matter to make a
distinction without a difference. It is an easy
thing for ingenious sophistry to construct a
labyrinth, which will bewilder and entangle
the unwary, for there never yet has been a
traitor since the world began, who did not plead
some plausible excuse in justification of his
treason. Arnold has his defenders, Caesar his
eulogists, and Bonaparte his admirers and par
tisans. Those who have pre-determined to desert
the Southern cause, can easily plead a love of
the Union-an indefinite nothing-to justify
their wourse. Union !-there is no uion. In
this instance it is a word without a correspon
ding idea; for there is not and never again can
between North and South, " They stand apart
like cliffs that have been rent asunder." When
we hear men pleading an " over-righteous" love
of the "glorious Union" as an excuse for dis
tracting the counsels of the South, we consider of
it the unequivocal index of folly or hypocrisy. tih
We are accustomed to attach different ideas
to the words Secession and rebellion, but the
right of both when brought to a practical issue ,
rests upon the same foundation. A rebellion
may be peaceable as well as a secession, or in ce
both cases, force may be called in to coerce the
seceding party. But we promised to avoid all at
hair-splitting distinctions. " The war of the
Giants" has worn threadbare that filagree non

The late fire has reminded some of our citizens that

eater security of our village property; and we un

tain the other. Thisis laudable, and should be car

THE COURIER AGAIN.
Although the Courier uncourteously reiterates its
rough expressions in regard to ourself-and that too
after the amende honorable wasmade on our part- _h
yet we are willing to drop the matter just where It is,
so far as any offence is considered. We suggest to our th
older brother though, if we may venture witout dis
respect to do so, that a supercilious tone of comment
is not more becoming to extreme age than to early fio
youth; perhaps less so, as censorious people might set fri
it down to a soured heart, whereas the same judges an
would excuse a boy (who had only seen some twenty
summers since leaving his Alma mater) on the score pe
(pardon the pun!) of his youth and Inexperience. de
The Courier's sur-rejoinder perhaps demands that ale
we should say a word or two of rebuttal, (another pun Is?
here hovers around the tip of our pen, but we will not
yield to the influence of example) and we proceed to
'say our say:' of
1st. The Charleston Courier says: Sa
"We intended, first, to be witty, and there are people,
as slack-ioitted as ourselves, who think we succeeded, ce
or, at least, by no means made so "dead a failure," r
as did the Advertiser in discharging its harmless vol
ley at us." T
It was not only a "harmless volley," we may con- M
tinue, but a really serviceable one, as it has been the
instrument, in the hands of Faust, of supplying mat- U
ter for more than two long columns in the Courier;
and that is something these dull times. But more
than this, it has given the Courier the meed of " wit,"
which some "people" have been awarding to it at
our expense. Very well-we do not complain. We
are the Courier's benefactor in wreathing its fae with
a smile of complaeency which, but for us, had'never
relaxed its facial muscles.

4th. The Charleston Courier republishes, for our ry
benefit, Its request of the 9th ult. addressed to the ne
Edgofield Advertiser. It was this:
" The Edgefield Adrertiser.-Our good and esteemed
friend of the Advertiser promises to re-publish 'that
gallant article of the Ne,..,' upon the Patriot and of
Courier. Will it do us the favor and the justice also, is
to re-publish our replies to the News, in the Courier, co
of the 3d and 4th instant, and especially the latter, W
in which we repel the charge of "partisan and un
generous fings at men and parties in this State.' SO
None Verrons." - cie
The Advertiser greatly regrets not having seen this pa
request until now. The friendliness of its language me
would certainly have saved both of us all this spar- fro
ring. But n'importe-its all in a man's life-time. We be
are 'making friends' as fast as possible, and why re- be
gret it now ? If the Courier yet wishes 'us to repub- as
lish its replies to the allegations of the News, it has -
only to say so. see
Lith. The Charleston Courier's 8th count we trans- W
fer without comment to our columns, as being at once
dignified and correct-correct, except in construing ye
what it elsewhere terms a "harmless volley" into an g
"onslasght"-to suit it purposes:
8. " The Edgefield Advertiser says, it seeks no eon- th
troversy with us; yet, it is both ready and willing to
meet us on any question and in any way. Now, all ri
we have to say, on this head, is that the Advertiser ta
made an onslaught on us, not we on it; and we think de
we can challenge the minutest search of our past re
cord, to show that we haveinot only been ever courte- w
ous to both our juniors and seniors of the press, but th
that, in editorial controversy, we have never beens the wi
aggressors. At times, we have hit back very hard, ar
we admit; but we have both borne and forborne much
from the country press-not, however, from the Ad- N
vertiser. Like the Adrertiser, we trust pe
" We dare do all that may become a man; N
Who dares do more, is none."
The 9th plea of the Charleston Courier is coupled us
with one of those long parentheses which leave it In ev
doubt whether the after-remark is to be applied to the of
subject-matter of the parenthesis or to what went be- oc
fore. Under the circumstances therefore, we beg leave na
to enter the Irishman's demurrer of an Alibi.

After all this, the Charleston Courier has a Post th

ser mean by "our categorical strictures ?" Does it hi
mean that we applied the cat-o' nine-tails, in our " fu-.
rious charge " on itF Or was it only imitating Mrs.

It was a writer in RussaL's MAGAZINE that accused se

of the best, and most ancent, and most liberal, and it
most varied of our American Monthly Magazines- s
and withal, it was untrue ; at least we could now re
flect upon the Courier with egual truth. We could ni
say that it would not let one of the compounds of at
cat pass unsubsidized, if it was the last cataplasm ap- C
plied to rescusitate its own fainting existence. But to a

a-sleep ; and all the while, as we slept, broken ideas _
of Bagpipes, cracked Hlaut-boys, and split Gourd
vines came crowding upon our dormant mentality in u
pell-mell confusion ; yet, ever and anon, we could dis
tinctly hear above the storm of discordant rhapsodies it

A CALM--AND WHAT NEXT
Politically, there is nothing of great and exciting
interest astir upon the expanse around us. An occa.
sional storm-in-a-tea-pot arises to amuse this and that
locality with its short-lived and limited 'fussing.' A
little more news from WALKER and his Revolutionists
comes along now and then, toletus know that the Nica.
raguan strife is still progressing. The Atlantic steam.
era continue to bring accounts of the markets as usual,
with more or less of conjecturing as to the tendencies
and drifts of European diplomacy. Calafornian gold
is reported too from month to month, by the San
Franciscan ships ; although the quantity that finds its
way to our ports is on the decrease. ELI TxAvln's
enterprise still engages a little attention, more from
its absurdity of course than from any expectation of
its being carried out. The illing up of a few vacan.
cies in Congress, also elicits some local excitement.
(We have just had an election of the kind in the '9
District-not yet known who is the member.) Even
Kansas matters are more stagnant than they ought to
be; although we believe the South is doing something,
about in spots, for the cause. Washington items have
lost their spice, since the new administration has set
tled down to hard work, the rush for appointments
having in a great measure subsided. Our good old.
bachelor President has done nothing yet that the op
position can make capital of; and so the political can
onading of parties is suspended for the nonce. The
cold Spring of '57 seems to have had some influence
in chilling political as well as agricultural affairs in
our section of the Union. Indeed, the sea of politics
with us for a month past has been so nearly frozen
over as almost to admit of a comparison with the ice
fields so forcibly portrayed by the lamented Kane.
Our able and respected cotemporaries of the Charles
ton Mercury and the New Orleans Delta have repre
sented (we mean no disrespect by the allusion) the
deep hoarse barkings of the distant Walrus; while
another press has attempted an exploit not altogether
unlike that of the great Arctic voyager when he
strove to fasten his brig to the "low rocky island."
There is this difference though between the two cases:
whereas the bold voyager had his "noble ten-inch
manilla " to rely upon, the adventurous editor had on.
ly a rope of sand. There is' this other difference:
that the Arctic storm was one of fearful magnificence
and fraught with iminent peril to its witnesses, while
the political whirligust scarcely disturbed the equa
nimity of a single beholder. But we fear we shall at
this rate obliterate all resemblance between the two
occurrences. Suffice it to add that the Advance could
not be fastened to the rocks, and South Carolina has
yet to be tied to the ice-berg of Centralization. We
repeat, it is an icy political calm that is upon us.
Whether it portends evil or good, may be briefly con.
sidered in another paragraph.
Some imagine they bear the low muttering of than
der from beyond the seemingly smooth horizon. Oth.
ers speak of it as the rumbling of a coming earth.
quake. (How rapidly one gets from the Pole to the
Equator in this hazardous business of similes !) Many
sit with folded hands awaiting the next political de.
monstration. While not a few believe there is no
great danger after all to be apprehended from the pre.
sent posture of affairs, provided the Administratioa is
true to the Democracy, the Democracy true to the Ad.
ministration, AND OTH TRUE TO TE CoNsTIvuT103
Of this last number are some of us in South Carolina,
and for these reasons: The Democratic Party of
these United States is not only now in power, but has
many chances of remaining so. Its strength is on the
increase in almost every State in the Union. The
current has been Bowing strongly in this direction for
several years and it still advances steadily. To say
that it will be reversed, is a naked assumpti'on having
its origin only (so far as we can see) in a dogged dis.
position to look exclusively upon the dark side of oum
prospects as a people. This triumphant party finda
its chief enemy now in Black Republicanism. By
these two armies is the battle of our fate to be fought,
Can there be much doubt as to its issue ? It is as im.
politic to undervalue the strength of our opponents aw
it is to overestimate our own. We therefore admil
that the Black Republican Party of the North is for
midable; formidable not only from its wild fanaticisn
and untotored prejudices, but formidable also from its
actual numbers. Its strength, however, is not the
strength of right or of law; and it is a faint hearl
that can accord to lts dark masses the prestigeof ap.
proaching success, especially in view of the powerful
position and bright-waving banners of its great one
my, the Democracy of the United States. At the pres
ot juncture, how stands the array on either side!
With us, may be found the entire strength of the Soutl
and all the sound-hearted men of the North-againas
us, Black Republicans ; with us, the Constitution e0
the United States-against us, the Higher Law ; witl
us, the Supreme Court--against us, no vestige of con,
stitutional right; with us, the patriotism of Washing
ton-against us, the treason of Arnold ; with us, en.
lightened Freedom-against us, grovelling Anarchy
In such a contest can there be the hesitation of fea:
as to the final result, if all do their duty? Let the
Democracy cling to its principles, let the South come
up as one man to the conflict, let the Administratios
prove itself worthy of the Democracy and the South
and the victory is ours. We hold the triumph of thi
Democracy synonymous with the triumph of the
South. If it should prove otherwise, then indeed wil
have come our real day of trial.

their mother gave birth to another child, whorm
she brought home with her. Now the question
arises, if that child, born on the soil of Scotland,
is bond or free? If born free, how can it be
held in slavery here ? And was not its intro

A xARAGRAPH 7R0K . x.1
(oMrrrED noX IS L'vhIr oF LAsT wa.)
Several years ago, I heard a truthful man relate
the following story of a remarkable fight in the
mountains. In committing the narrative to wri
ting I give it this caption:
" THE BATTLE OF LIFE."
The beams of the morning sun rested on the
gray craggy peaks of the Blue Ridge. The loud
scream of the eagle mingled with the hoarse voice
of the cataract. A hunter with poised rifle was
scanning the light graceful figure of adeer. Sud
denly he Is anticipated In the work of death by a
prowling panther. A prodigious bound and the
long sharp teeth of the blood-thirsty beast were
fastened in the throat of the unresisting stag, and
in a moment it lay on tbe earth a lifeless and bleed
ing mass. For a few minutes.the panther, sitting
like a cat upon the trunk of a fallen oak, licked
his gory breast and contemplated his coming
feast. A crash is heard In the adjacent thicket of
laurel, whence a huge bear is seen emerging,
fierce, shaggy and determined. The panther and
the bear, with a piercing cry and a solemn groan
known only to glooms and solitude, meet in dead
ly fight. Each found his equal id the mortal strife.
The panther is crushed to death in the strong arms
of the bear, whilst Bruin is complety disembowel
led by the elaws of his antagonist. So, the three
animals fell a prey to the astounded huntsman
without the waste of a single round of ammuni
tion. And thus we see how "the battle of life"
is literally fought among the inferipr orders of
creation. Wouldn't such a spectable as that be
worth twenty pageants on Broadway'1

THE BOUTHERN QUARTEBLY REVIEW.
In the course of the ensuing week the 4th
Inumber of this ably conducted Quarterly will be
issued from this office.
The forthcoming number will p rove to be one
of the richest that has been published, and it is.
to be hoped that the friends of Southern Litera
ture, will rally to its support and ensure its per.
In order to prove to our friends, our desire to
sustain the work, we think it not improper to
state that we have paid out and incurred a debt
in its publication during the past year, amount
ing to....................... $9,343 24
Of this amount we have paid in cash.$4,173 20
Liabilities yet to be paid..........2,170 04
Total expences .............$6,343 24
Of this sum we have received...1,919 90
Excess paid out, over receipts .. $4,423 34
On examining our books we find the
amount due ......... .......... 5,200 66
Profit, after paying expenses ...$778 32
If the above amount could be collected, we
would be enabled to pay off' all liabilities and re
alize a profit of $777.32. And when it is known
that $3 per page is the price for articles publish
ed in the Reciew, the reader must see that the
work can be easily sustained if those who receive
it will forward their dues.
The amount of $5,200 66 found to be due
does not include arrearages prior to the year
just closing, and hence, we are encouraged to
go on if the subscribers to the Review now in
arrears will do us the just ice by remitting at an
early period the sums due by them for the work
delivered last year including the number shortly
to be delivered.
We are not asking alms. We 'simply entreat
those who have not paid to do so, and we will
endeavor to carry on the RevWW under the con
viction that the people of the South will ultimate
ly determine to support, liberally, the only work
of its character now issued in the South.

tenced to be hung on the 15th May. His coun

The prisoner is a young man only twenty
years of~ age, of very good appearance, good
education, and appeared in the Court room well
dressed. His parents are both living, are of
the highest respectability, and are wealthy.
His mother is a very pious woman, has written
several religious volumes of interest, and also
preaches the gospel; and in consequence of
these facts'a good deal of feeling was elicited
both for the young man under accusation and
for the prosecution.

DISEASE OF TEE LIVER.
When the celebrated Dr. Rush declared that drunk
enness was a disease, he enunciated a truth which
the experience and observation of medical men Is ev
ery day confirming. The many apparently insane
excesses of those who indulge in the use of spirituous
liquors, may be thus accounted for. The true cause
of conduct, which is taken for infatuation, is very f, a
quently a diseased state of the Liver. Nor organ in
the human system, when deranged, produces a more
frightful catalogue of diseases. And If, instead of
applying remedies to the manifestations of disease, as
is too often the case, physicians would prescribe with
a view to the original cause, fewer deaths would result
from diseases induced by a deranged state of the Liv
er. Three-fourths of the diseases, enumerated under
the head of Consumption, have their seat in a disea
sed Liver. Dr. M'Lane's celebrated Liver Pills, pre
pared by Fleming Bros., are a certain cure.
