THE KERCURY AND STANDAD CON3OLIDATED.
The Mercury, of the fifth instant, announces
that its proprietor "has purchased the Charles
ton Standard, with its subscription lists and good
will, and proposes to vu-rge the two papers into
one, and to send the Mercury to each of the
L. W. Spratt & Co., remark in regard to the
sale, that, "in duime so, they are assured they
have acted not against the wishes of the subst-ri
bers and advertising patrons of the Standard,
for they regard the Mercury as now upholding
the principles and g'eneral line of policy for the
promotion of which the Standard was first es
tablished." This is certainly news to us, as well
as. a great many iu our section. We have al
ways thought that the principles "for the pro
motion of which the Standard was first estab
lished," were as widely different from those of
the Mercury as any leading principles in the
South ever have been from each other-that
they were diametrically opposed-and we hope,
even now, that the Mercury does not place a
broad construction upon the above.
The notice of L. W. Spratt & Co., farther
states that the Mercury "is with the Democratic
party and sustains the Administration." This
is also to us news of import ! We thought that
against the tendencies and some of the leading
acts and principles of this party, at least,-that
the Mercury had ever waged a manful warfare.
Nationalism and consolidationism, such as prop
abated by the Democratic party, under existing
circunstances, we thought were regarded by the
Mercury as the shoals and quicksands of the
political sea against which the South- should
carefully steer, as involving her wreck and ulti
mate subjugation and ruin.
We are at a loss to conceive what new phase
of nationalism has been recently presented by
the Democratic party, which could successfully
recommend it to the favor and support of the
We think the Mercury should enlighten its
readers in this section upon these points. If an
actual construction be placed upoin them, the
only reasonable conclusion is, that it has changed
its course, and now stanels side by side with the
Carolinian, Edg.field Advertiser, &.-Suntr
We cannot but express surprse at the above
remarks, taken from the last issue of the Sumter
Watchman, calling in question the position of
the Mercury. We can see nothing t: hatever in
the language we have used to give rise to any
doubts, but will, in respect to our cotemupory,
notice the matter briefly.
In gegard to "upholding the principles and
general Tine of policy for the promotion of which
the Standard was first established," it is perti
nent to inquire what these were. In 1850, all
parties in South Carolina claimed to be State
Rights Democrats, believing in the right of se
cession, and the propriety of exercising it on the
occasion of the California swindle. These were
the principles. But a portion of the people,
headed by Cheves, Barnwell, and Butler, opposed
the policy of the separate action of South Caro
lina, after other had failed. They preferred to
wait for co-operate action of at least several
States. This was the policy, and the State. in
. convention, decided to adopt it. The Mercury
has long abandoned the separate action of the
State, and seeks bonafide the union of theSouth
for action on any proper occasion.
In reference to the Mercury being "with the
Democratic party, and supporting the Adminis
tration," we should really like to know with what
party it should be, or whom it should support.
The principles of the Democratic party are cor
rect, and the Administration is sustaining them.
We are not aware of any issue now before the
country which would compel us to be against
the party for a deviation from its principles, or
to attack the Admainistration. A definition of
oar Democracy may readily be found in the fol
lowing languave of August last:
We are no llational Democrat-that is, a taritif
Democrat, or an Internal Improvement Demo
crat, or a Consolidation Democrat. We deem
all these terms the expediencies of the most
miserable political hypocrisies to disguise the
betrayal of Democratic principles on the various
points of policy they designate-old Federalisms
-h-ross abuses of the Constitution-inventions
of the worst enemies of the Democratic party,
becanse polluting its integrity, belying its prin
ciples and degrading its moral power to the foul
uses of Consolidation. We are Democrats
simple Democrats, according to, the creed of the
. great and ilustrious founders of the Democratic
party, as laid down in '98 and '99 in their in
mortal production; and as contradistinguished
frem Latonal Democrats. We are State Righls
Democrats. Between a Democrat and a State
Rights Democrat, there can indeed be no differ
ence, for the one is necessam ily the other; and
we assume the latter, because there is no differ
ence in the meaning of the terms.
For the Administration, since the dismissal of
Walker, it has been as true to the South as the
most sanguine had any reason to expect. It has
stood by the South, and quarreled wit~h Douglas,
the great leader of tih# party. J..t has suffered
accordingly, and has gone through the trying
ordeal to the satisfaction of our best Southern
men in Congress. We see no reason for with
holding oar support-a support accorded by the
State and her members of Congress, anid there
fore give it cheerfully and comlially.-Me1rcrury.

DEATH OF HON. JOIEl A. QUITMAN.
By telegrapic despatch from Natehes, Miss., we
learn that the lion. Jonx A. QLITMAN died near that
city on the morning of the 17th inst., from a disease
contracted in Washington. It is generally known
that General Q'ITxAN was a boarder at the National
Hotel in Washington, at the time of the disease which
proved so fatal to so many persons; and from the ef
fects of which len. Qc'rrx~a never recovered.
Thus has fallen another strong man of the South
in the midst of usefulness and honor. Brave in bat.
tie, generous in iis social relations, and energetic in
his civil duties, Mississippi has lost in him one of
her most estimable statesmen. The whole country
will symputhize with her in this sad bereavement.
The pupils of our Female Institute gave a concert
at their Academy buildings on Friday evening last,
which was well received by a select audience. The
girls were looking very pretty, and discharged their
several parts with zeal and spirit. Miss Msans, the
instructress, presided over the performances with a
quiet and lady-like care. Sonc of the pieces were
executed very creditably. So wore some of the songs,
especially the duett by Misses M. S. and K. Cl. But
no one looks to an occasion of this sort for entertain
ment. Sutlicient, if the exercises give evidence of
progress among the scholars. Such was the case in
the present exhibition, as we are assured by several
persons who have children and wards In this institu
tion, and who of course know best the degree of their
"STATES RIG IITS."
The article offered by "A Regular Reader" upon
this subject, is declined for several rdasons. First, it
is an exceedingly crude re-hash of an argument
which no longer admits of contradiction in thais lati
tude. Secondly, the writer's tone of lamentation over
the degoneracy of his fellow-citizens conveys an un
founded imputation upon their good sense and patri
otism. And thirdly, we can see no point or justice in
his sweeping condemnation of the present political
leaders in our State. This cry of "States Rights"
seems to have became a very toeain with certain pa.
pers as well as individuals in South Carolina. If one
laud our good old President, or complimnent any
Northern patriot, or approve a measure whtich may
have owed its passage to the help of Northern votes,
or utter a hope that the Union may yet outlive the
shock of fanatical agitators, use is warned that he is
departing from the "good old States Rightss princi
ples of Sooth Carolina." And if he but hint at the
possibility of deriving benefit from the Democratic
party of the Uni'on, he is false to the teachings of Mr.
Caaux, recreant to the memory of other days, and

ful. All South Carolinians are States Rights mena.
All Sound Democrats too are Ststes Rights men. It
is almost as insulting now to doubt a Southerner's or
thodoxy upon this political doctrine, as his belief
of the New Testament. And yet a few wiseacres, here
and there, insist upon considering thenaselves the sole
defenders and preservers oif this sacred fire. But for
themn, the idea is, it would die in its ashes, and all the
hopes of republican freedom would tumble intg thu
chaos of centralization. Ridiculous delusion I

"THE TRUE POLICY."
Under this heading, our coteamporary of the Caro
linaian comments upon the position of the Mer51cury
as set forth in an article whaich we copy on another
column. It will he observed, by a perusal of the re
marks of those two ptrominent and influential jour
nals, that our dilferences in South Carolina are not
only vanishing, but are giving place to a strong corn
bintion of spirit and intelllgence on the plstform of
Southern Co-opration,-a platformn identical, as we
take it, with the Georgia platformn of 1852. We quote
the language of the Caroliaian, approving the ie
eury's course :
" In this policy, we believe the JIereuary will come
as near receiving the approbation of the unanimous
voice of the Stats as is within ths rnnge of human
possibility. We are not of those who conceive that
to harmonise and co-operate with the party once,is
to be considered as sacrificing all independence. and
becoming thereby a mere pawn of the political chess
board, to be put here or there as thes game of party
may demand. He who wishes to sell himself, or is
by aature so destitute of Individuality as to thus sac.
riflce his independence, could not be prevented, nor
'saved. Such men, in party or out of party, would be
mere cyphera-they could never be anything else.
The man of self-reliance and of distinct principles,
looks to those principles; his prime object is their
advanement-and he can consistently, and should,
unite with party to inaugurate them. To refuse to
do so is nothing less thtan recreaney to political duty.
When the party departs from those, then it is the duty
of the man of pra>.ciple to depart from the party.
Of this we have a most striking illustration in Mr.
Calhoun. We do not believe any ptublic man co-op
erated with the Democratic party with more intense
satisfaction than did he ; because, whea he acted with
it, he was acting for the principles of the States
Rights party. We sometimes found him co-operating
with It, and caucussing for its success. But the mo
ment the party deviated from its principles, his co
operation eased. Are we to learn nothing from his
example? Is it unworthy of our imitation? The
Southern States have a comamon interest-the guiding
star of their destiny is the same-and South Carolina
would be unworthy of "a place in the picture" of
the struggles for constitutional rights, did she piersiat
in adhberinag to the course of isolationu, and timidly
shrink from laying he'r stroag hanad upon the helma
and in the comnpanay and cotnfidence of her sisters,
embarking boldly upon the ceomon voyage.

It is really bracing to one's political animus, to per
ceive the evident indications of a returning unity of o:
sentiment and oneness of action among the political o
men and -the political journals of our State. The ej
feeling would seem to be general too among the peo.
ple, that the time is past forliigl-sounding resolves e
on the part of South Carolina upon each and every
issue of Federal politics as it arises. Fiery indigna- tl
Lion has been superseded in the public mind by calm I
determination ; and the consequence is, that whereas I
our State was once ever ready and eager to plunge h
into exciting measures of redress and resistance upon
every occasion of Federal wrong, she Is now prepared C
to weigh these causes mnure calmly and decide her -d
course in respect to them only upon a full survey of P
the threatened evil and after mature consultation with
her sister States of the great Slaveholding South. In
other words, her presentestablished policy is Southera
,union for ,Sutahern snfery,-this union to be achieved, t
not by ultra and impracticable spasmodic efforts to
break up the Amerieaan Confederacy, but by a steady
concentration of Southern thought and Southern en
thusiasm to the destruction of those influences which j
wage war upon our political rights under the Consti- a
tution, and to the repeal of all such Federal enact- S
ments as unjustly depress the interests of our section 2
or stand in the way of a complete recognition of our ,
equal rights as sovereign members of the American
Union. As corollary to our concerted action with the t
rest of the South, it is now also further understood o
that our only available policy is to act in connection c
with the Democratic party and the present Adminis
tration ; and this, for the manifest reasons, (1) that
the South herself -composes the strength of that par
ty, and (2,) that President Eucais.ax has fully es
tablished his claims to Southern confidence by his
resolute adherence to Truth, Justice and the Consti
tution. In the language of the Charleston Mercury p
moreover, " the principles of the Democratic party
are correct and the administration is sustaining them."
They are at least far more correct than any other po
litical creed of the day; it is for the South to guard i
against any deviation from the direct line of those a
principles. In this, there can be no shadow of doubt
that she will realize the hearty co-operation of the t
present patriotic Chief Magistrate of the United n
States. We are encouraged to take position thus as a
State, by the increasing prospects of reform which
invite us to enter upon this course of policy. There
is a very different state of matters existant now, from
that which surrounded us in the days of Nullification.
Then, the political tide was pouring on to Consolida
tion, and to the Tyranny o9f a reckless majority. Now,
the Rights of the States are emblazoned in bold col
ors not only upon the banners of the South, but upon
many also in other divisions of the Confederacy. Then,
a Protective Tariff of hideous proportions was bear- b
ing down with crushing effect upon our prosperity.
Now, the burden has been lessened at our demand,
until at length the dawn of Free Trade and Direct ti
Taxation is rising to view. A great change has like- f
wise come over the face of affairs since the more re- 1
cent days of our Secession nitvement. The "Cali
fornia swindle" was indeed a monstrous wrong,-well .,
calculated (as m.ny of us then thought and still (
think) to snap asunder the bonds of the Union. It a
was enough (wo thought) to arouse the South in all
her borders to action and revolution. But the mnajori
ty, in South Carolina as elsewhere, decided against
extreme measures. They hoped for better days, where
all the future scented dark and disheartening; and
it is not to be denied that in this instance, "Wisdom
has been justified of her children." The winds have
veered and the sky has brightened. The Dred Scott
decision, the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, andi
ti~p recognition of the Kansas Slavery Constitution,
are unmistakeablo evidences of this change. Thec
firm stand of the Democracy despite the dangerous I
defalcation of Douglass and his followers, and the
noble tone and bearing of the Administration, are as
surances that the change Is to be progressive in its re
sults. The South sees this ; South Carolina with the
rest accepts and trusts the olive-leaf of promise thus
held out by the Constitutional conservatism of the
country. HI.uxo.ND, Oaa, Dorca, KEnrT, MI.Es and
McQuuz,-almnost her entire delegation in Congress,
and representing every shade of opinion amongst her
people,-are shaping 4er coui-se consonancewith
this juist expectation 'df the triumph of the united
South. So, we doubt not, is our immediate represen
tative, General Bosn.x; although we are not cer
tain what divergence of views (if any) is indicated by
his late vote on the Kansas Conference Bill. As with
the public men of the State, so with the press,-weo
find the ranks, lately distracted by contending views<
of policy, gradually cementing and forming an almomsti
united phalanx in accordance with the course andi
counsels of our congressmen ; and these together re
present, we believe, the true mnind of the people of
South Carolina. Let then our brethren of the South
and the conservativp men of the whole country know,
that our little State stands united and ready, await-t
ing but the signal of her political friends, to enact
any duties that may be assigned her, which have for
their object the lRights of the States, the unshackled e
prosperity of all sections, and the integrity of the

sentative of tour mountain Congressional District, ~
lion. JAMEs L. Onn. Still a young man, lie has [
without apiparent efort succeeded in reaching onte of
the highest anti most honorable posts in te American I
Gloveranment. This success is certaintly inot of that I
flimsy kind which is sometimes attained b~y mere pier
sonal address; Neither can it be said to have resutlte,
as some have enviously conjecturedi, fruom political
trickery and intrigue. Col. Onna, we take it, is as far
from political dishonesty as lhe is from the practice of
hypocritical mannerism. His course has been that oft

whether in home differences or in Congressional con
troversies. Yet he hasi gone strait forward in an al- I
most unimopeided career of success. It is his manly '
ability, whtich bast carried himt along to his present
elevated position before the country. In testimony ,
of the fact that he lhas evinced the highest qualifica- ~
tions for that position, we.quote the following striking a
compliment paid to him liy the intelligent Washin'g- it

"Col. Orr has proved himself most capable of per- -
forming the arduous and responsible duties as presid- ~

presided with dignity and firintess; promplt in msak

the memibers; impartial in recognizing the claims of p
gentlemen from every section of the country to the
floor, ho won golden opinions from all.
Although Col. Orr has positively refused to again ii

EIONUMENT TO THE MEMORY OP PRESTON B.
Yesterday we saw a very beantiful monument
Sthe mtemory of our lamented Brooks, which
Snow compjleted and at the marble yard of
Ir. W. TI. Whlite, of this city. Th'is mionument
Sof the obelisk form, pure inarbule, of the finest
nality, and finished in the umost artistiec
uid workmanlike manner. It is fourteent feect .
igh from the pedimetnt, antd five feet att hawsm.
'ear tihe top or point of the obelisk, is a neatly ~
e'siigned arabesque, and below, in the centre
nmd front side 3f the monument, is the coat of
rms of the State of South Carolina, elaborately
-orked and carved by ap artist of great skill.
|eow this, and on the dise of the obelisk, is an
ry wreath, ini bold relief, encirelintg thme follow
tg approriate inscription:
PRESTON S. BROOKS,
Born in Edgefield Village, 6th August. 1819. (
Elected to the State Legislature in 1844.
lected Captain of Co. D). Palmettom Regiment, in
1846, and served during the Mexican War.
Elected to Congress in 1553.
nd died in Washington City, D. C., 27th Jan. 1857.
On another side, in a similar wreath, will ap
ear thme following:
" Ever able, manly, just and heroic ; illustrating
'uo patriotism by his devotion to his country ; the
holo South unite with his bereaved family in do
Lring his untimely end.".
And on the obverse side to the above, this
iscription will be placed :
Earth has never pillowed upon her bosom a truer
or.Heaven opened wide her gates to receive a man
On the back of the obelisk is this incription:
Preston S. Brooks will be long, long romembhered,
As one in whom the virtues loved to dwell; i
heo' sad to us, and dark this dispensation, t
We know God's wisdom orders all things well."
This msonument is a work of great beauty and S
-namnent, simple withal, and expressive in its t4
wering position, of his spirit of whom it is a t
Mr. White will, in the course of the week,
ud this monument by the railroad to Hamburg,

is to remain. There is prepared, we learn,

THE CUE AT GRAJITE SPRING. r
'Twas a pleasant time we spent on Saturday last,
s company with a number of gentlemen, at Granite jA
pring, the beautiful residence of that estimable and C
rue gentleman, Col. A. S. It was a day fraught with I
much real enjoyment and solid amusement, the mem
ry of which will create .pleasant. emotions in after
ears. By 10 A. M. the guests had assembled, and y
rith spirit entered at once in pursuit of the pleasure m
hat was in store for them. Interesting and health
avigorating games-ten pins, roulette, &c.,-were j
stroduced and prosecuted with considerable energy j
-and, in some instances, with skill seldom surpassed. I
nd delightful boat exenrsinns were made over the
'olonel's fish pond near by. And music-sweet mu
ie-the lute, violin and guitar, in the hands of Col.
m. S., C. A. and M. L., made the occasion doubly at. d
ractive with their dulcet and liquid strains of artis
ic music. And there was E. B., the "Joe Sweeny" c
f Carolina, with his Banjo in good plight, from a
rhich he extracted " Down in de wilderness," " Old ti
lob Ridley," &e., with the greatest gusto, and to the n
afinite delight of those present. In fact, all was
ife and animation. N
About one o'clock dinner was announced-and
uch a dinner! But we are compelled to leave a des- I
ription of that barbecuo dinner entirely to the im- t
gination of the reader,-we know our incapacity to s
lo the table justice. A desperate attack was made on
he well-prepared barbecue meats and other things b
pread before us, and after a pleasant and vigorous
ngagement of a half an hour's duration, the party p
etreated in slow and measured strides towards the
hady grove nearer the Spring. Here the side-split- a
ing anecdotes and well-told stories and the loud and
ong ha-ha's detained the merry company no ineon
But it is useless to say more. Sufiee it to state that
rith the good dinner, the choice fruits and melons,
he good music, fine amusements, and last, but not
east, the good liquors, we had as great a time as
wenty men could well stand.
Near sun down the crowd dispersed-under many
bligations to Col. S., for the kind and hospitable on
ertainment he had given, and with the heartfelt wish
hat he and his might be spared many long, long
rears, in the blissful enjoyment of peace, health and
appiness, at Granite Spring. "So mote it be." t
From the Charleston Mercury.
UNITED STATES SENATOR.
Mn. Eneron: We respectfully propose for the I
ffice of United States Senator from this State,
;he name of Col. William A. Owens, of Barn
well. Of the character and qualifications of a
rentleman so well and favorably known, it is
pot necessary to speak at large. He is in the
maturity of his manhood, being between thirty
ive and forty ycar-s of age, and from his active r
ud early participation in public affairs has ac
1uired an experience and knowledge unusually
xtensive for that period of life. To show his
sninent qualifications for the office in question,
t is only necessary to advert to his career at the
gar and in the legislature. Having entered
spon the practice of the profession of law im.
nediately upon attaining his majority, his tal
mts and dihigence soon placed him among the
oremost at the bar of his district, which was at
he same time numerous and able, and as an
aoquent and successful advocate he now stands
tuong the most distinguished in the State. His
>olitical career is known to all. He was elected -
Smember of the House of Rep'resentatives in
l4$, and retained his seat until 1R5M, when he
leined a re-election. T1his period of six years
vas an eventful one in our history, and many
lestions, both local and federal, touching tho
ighest interests of the State, and requiring the
argest capacity and greatest firmness for their l
ettlemnent, came up for discussion. -In, every: ,
lebate which arose, Col. Owens took a proma
ient and distinguished part, and established for
aimself a reputation eqnalled by few and sur
)assed by none of his comnpeers. His eminent
apacity for public office, united as it is with un
mpeachable integrity and spotless honor in all
he relations of private life, ought to be devoted
o the service of the State; and it is certain
hat, nowhere, in the present juncture of affairs,
vi his high moral and intellectual qualilica
,ions be more valuable and etiict than in the
enate of the United States.

DrIPARTED this life, at his residence in Edgefield
histrict. S. C., on the lit of May, 1858, LEVI Me
IANIEL. in the 80th year of his age.
The subject of this notice was born April 25th
79-joined the Calliham Church by baptism in the
ear 1828, and since that time has lived an orderly
nd consistent member of the Church ; and gave evi
ence to all that be had passed from death unto life.
We sympathize with his bereaved companion and
ildren, and with the Church with whom he was a
ember, in their affliction ; but truly it may bo said
f him, that "our loss is his eternal gain." Let us,
aerefore bow to the hand of an All-wise Providence
-ho " worketh all things after the counsel of his own
'ill," and prepare to meet our departed brother and
ther where the wicked cease from troubling and the
eary are at rest. PASTOR.
DEPARTED this life, on the 15th May last, at his
ite residence near Hamburg, WILLIAM FOY in
de 79th year of his age, leaving an aged widow and
ix children to mourn their loss.
The deceased was a son of PETEn Fo, who was
illed by the Tories, in this District, during the
loody struggles of the Revolutionary War.
In all the relations of life, he sustained an Irre
roachable character. He was an affectionate hus
and, fond father, a kind and obliging neighbor, and
n humble, heavenly-minded Christian, possessing in
n eminent degree the ornament of a meek and quiet
pirit. He was for fifty years a zealous and faithful
iember of the Methodist Church-lived a holy, pious
ud humble life, and adornadhis profession by a "well
rdered walk and Godly conversation."
His house was for many years the welcome home
f the Preachers of the Gospel, and long will they
old in grateful remembrance the favors received
rom his kind and hospitable family.
The last few years a his life he was called in the
rovidence of God to endure the deepest afflictions
ad sufferings. But he was wonderfully sustained by
he grace of God, and led through his fiery trials
rithout being overcome.
The writer of this humble tribute to his memory
as been well acquainted with him for many years,
.nd he can truly testify, that but few men of his ac
tnaintance have borne a more illustrious and anima
ing testimony to the truth and power of Christianity
han old Father Foy in his life and death. But his
rork is done, his race is ended and he is no doubt
;ono where the "wicked cease from troubling and the
reary are at rest."
When on the bed of death, In the midst of all his
ain and sufferings he was calm, and patient, and
sappy, and was never heard to utter a word of com
laint or murmuring. le often expressed himself
n the strongest terms of confidence and triumph as
o his future prospects.
Thus our fathers in the Church are leaving us, and
utering into their rest in heaven. May his surviving
amily and friends follow him as he followed the
laviour, and be prepared to share with them in the
ewards of the just. E. P.
