1ION. JAMUS He l1AMRnONs.
Much of our space this week Is devoted to the late
Beech Island speech of our distinguished Senator in
Congress. It is unnecessary to ask for it the careful
egnsiderstion of every South Carolinian. Standing
forth (as General Hfanosa does) the embodiment of
the temper, the wishes and the sentiments of one of
the zmost enthusiastic combinations ever arrayed in
behalf of any single man in South Carolina,-and
approved (as his.course thus far is) by the acclama
tiouns of those who in his election were the advocates
of other gentlemen,-it Is to be supposed that all
will eagerly seek to learn his views in full upon the
present condition of the country. These views are
made patent in the clear, strait-forward, downright,
and solid reflections to which he has given expression
in this address to his friends and neighbors. Emi
nuntly conservative in tone, he is mainly so in view
of the best interests of his State and section. Cau
tious in %e promulgation of any future line of action
for the South, he is em idently influenced by strong
aversion to grasping at any premature and futile
issuo which might injure rather than advance the
cause of Southern political safety. Ilopeful of a
triumph of the South in the Union, he is not without
apprehensiV that the last great alternative of disu
nion may yet become necessary.
But the exercise of this alternative, it will be seen,
is contemplated by our Senator as comparatively re
mote and imaprobable. It is indeed more so than
many of us had supposed, if the electiuu of a Black
Republican President is to be twice effected before
the Southern people will unite in that direction.
Viewing such an event upon its first occurrence as
the inauguration of mierule and rampant anti-slave
ry legislation, we had supposed that it would be the
generally recognized signal for marshaling our
Southern political batallions. on the last great battle
field of the Constitution. We had supposed that it
would be a fit occasion for the assembling of the
Southern people in their State conventions, and as
the next step in general Southern convention, to do
clare for the last time, in solemn form, the Constitution
al boundaries which no power in the government on
any pretext should again' overstep ; and having done
this to await the issue of disunion calnly, leaving the
responsibility of its consummation on the heads of
our opponents and enemies in the government. It
may well be though, that from his prominent stan
point of observation our able Senator descries hin
derances to-sueh a course which are not. now apparent
to those of us whose opportunities of knowing are so.
much more limited. It may he that the election of a
Black Republican would, as to the first instance, he
regarded the mere result of accidental combinations
and not as arising out of a system of hostility to our
section. Or it may be that Black Republicanism,
eveuf though in power, would quail before the moral
force of the Constitutional party at the North, of
which General 1[AiMoNIP speaks in ruch terms of
compliment and confidence, and might possibly enter
upon the government in such a spirit of fairness as
to disarm Southern indignation, at lest to the extent
of averting an assembling of our Southern host.
However this may be, we ar 16th to bellere that
Abolitionism Is to triumph over Democracy In the
next Presidontial election. And whatever the causes
that may lead to such a result, we trust that it will
at least be the oceasion of kindling our Southern zeal
into one common pillar of fire by which political
reprobates in every portion of the country may be
terrified into silence if not awakened to the dictates
of justice and patriotism.-lut we did not design
dissenting from our distinguished Senator's view of
this mptter. fl is prbably right. Our hope is,
that the contaned triupiphs of the pemopgey will
leavo no opportunity for testing the point, andi that
neithar in 1860 nor In 184, nor In all comIng time,
will the might of AbolitIonism, in any shape or guise,
he installed at the head of the American Govern
ment. Here is work for every patriot,-to prevent
so damning a stain to this vast temple of Freedom,
which was founded with such pains-taking and solici
tulde by the men of the Revolution, and which we are
bound by so many obligations of duty to preserve
inrilje against the assaults of both foes from
abroa4 an4 tralIqrs ig oli Hiidst- In this cause It is
now well settled that South Garolipa Is to act with
also the sentiment of the people of the State. If it
were at all doubtful before, we presume it is no longer
so since the direct, manly, practical avowal of Sena
tor IIAxxoND. Intellectually strong as that gentle
man has been beretofore acknowledged to be, hie now
stands before the Stat. in thp light of a practical
statesman, a wise counsellor, andl ap indepppdppt
public servant. In proof of ih, wp refvr every
taan to thep elersted, bold and conservative seutiments
of his late spoech at 1Dech Island.
We InvIte especial attention to the compliment paid
to our immediate representative, tien. BosuaxM, in
the course of the Senator's comments upon Kansas
matters. It evinces a magnanimous spirit of gener
osity towards one with whom he has differed on a
point of policy, but for whom he entertains no dimni
opt4in of regard on that account. We are of opin
ion that Ihis (p the ggpral r-entiment of the reading
public in regar4 tn q get umr's dieergeneo from his
colleagues, and froin thp 4Jhp gopthprg dejsgsmgips,

disposed tupi gs#Fp that yoep, but all are 'pore thatn
willing to cut it alowo ai the rp~egit of coquieatious con
viction and an earnest desire to advane the good of
the South. Such hams all along been our own feeling
in the matter-(whleb we have also distinctly cx
pressed)--and such is our feeling still, although de
idedly differing from our mensber us to the vote to
which we have made allusion.

THE LOVED AND LOST.
My little ones! my precious blue eyed babes! -
Whose loving words sweet music made fur me
Are gone-all gone! Their gentle lute-like tones,
Which, to their mother's ear, were soft and sweet
And soothed so miany cares of life apart,
Are hushed in death's cold sleep. And oh!
The rapturous kis, the warm, the glad caress
Whose soft electric charm subdued my soul
And made me dream of Heaven here on earth
Have vanished now. Yes! like the diamond dew
Which comes from Heaven in the early morn
When all is fresh and bright-whose sparkling drops
Stay but a moment, telling us of peace,
And joy, aud love,-the attritutes of Eden
And thon are gone before the heat and strife
And air of worldliness have chased the %heen
And purity from the new-blown flowers,
They loved to deck. -
As thosc pure drops exhale.
And seek their native skies, so the dear ones,
Whose little beings twined about my heart,
Hlave gone and left me. Earth' was too impure,
Too full of sin for thore whom God did love.
I strove to teach my little ones to love Him,
And oftentimes, at the still twilight hour,
I bade them look beyond the brilliant clouds
Whose gold and purple bathed the setting sun
Into the gates of pearl and jasper made,
And view with eyes of faith the gentle oke
Who interceedeth even now for earth,
Poor wearied ones!
And now I know,
They lovee him well,-for every night
They laid their little heads upon my knee
And whispered artlese prayers to Ilim,
The gentle shepherd; and Azrael cone
With outstretched wings to bear them hence,
They bade moe not to weep, for they
Were not afraid to die. Tie world,
The callous world, thinks that I have forgot
My little ones. But If they knew
How great a pang is gnawing at may heart,
All through the dlay, although I often smile;
And how at night, when her great ebon wings
All girt with jewels shadow earth and sea,
How oft my pillow is bnptized in tears,
How oft my sleepless eyes, amid the gloom,
Long for the sight of those-my lott ones
Oh ! they would pity me. No human heart
Could be so dead to mortal anguish here,
As thus to pass the lonely inourner hy.
Oh, God! have mercy in my hour of need,
When this poor heart so sore and broken feels:
Oh, hind it, my Redeemer, thou whose love -
Took in the little ones on earth. To thee,
To thee alone, I look for sympathy.
To thee T come in my soul's agony
This dark tlothsemane of mortal woe,
And when to me the last sad hour shall come,
When my freed spirit takes its onward fight,
Oh, grant me this, that my glad heart shall meet
My angel children near my Saviour's feet.

LETTER ROK EUROPE.
HOTEL LEINFELDER, Mcmru, July 5th, '58.
After a charming journey through the happy land
of Bavaria, I am at length seated In her proud Capi
tal, Munich. My companion do voyage, an Amerien
Dutchman from New York, entirely worn out with
novelty-gazing, has gone to bed in the broad day time,
expressing the conviction that nothing short of a nap
from now until the final day can possibly restore him
to freshness. In this strait, my own legs being ex
ceedingly the worte for wear, and my tongue lacking
a victim, I lean hack and exclaim " venerated A drer
ria.'r, show further proof of your long-suffering kind
ness, and again lend me your ear !"
Bavaria, beautiful, beaming flavaria, is like one uin
broken garden, one vast continuation of mountain,
plain and valley, watered by shining little rivers, and
dotted with hundreds of smiling towns and villages.
All is under the highest culi-ation, and the people
appear happy and well to do. The present sovereign,
king Max Joseph, and his father, king Ludwig. 1st,
who abdicated after his affair with the fearful Lola
voted te progress, to art, 'and to the welfare of their
ountry. The nobility are enlightened and wealthy ;
their lordly castles top the mountains, and their airy
villas border the glistening streams. It is a Catholie
ountry, and in every field and by every crossing,
stands a crucifix or a cross upon which bangs a cru
sifix. Before these, the peasants as they pass to and
from their latbours, always bend the knee and bow the
hecad. Some of these crucifixes are real works of art,
while others are rude and homely.
Speaking of - peasants, reminds me of the unac
ountable costume of the peasantry of Altenburg.
The women wear from the waist down to within two
nes of the knee a closely knined garment, which
its perfectly t~iht to the figure, and, but that it is not
ivided into two legs, would have exactly the appear.
anee of' a pair of short hose. With this they wear a
ight jaecret, the sleeves of which are enormo~usly
arge and full. Upon their heads a contrivance ot
alico with a horn in front and wings behind. Upon
heir legs, white, black or bluc stockings tied below
he knee, leaving thus, three or four inches ot the
nked flesh visible, A perfect pirovince of muoeld ur-.
t~e ! Just imagine an old ,romuan (for they at least
oght to cover upi the protuinent points !) in such a
rim-little short of " Georgia summer dress !"
Give me roomn for two or three curiosities of a lia
arian village. A favorite resort in such a village is
he Mlkdiarden, an ornamental enclosure, where
rowds of people go late in the afternoon to drink
ilk. Hiere they sit about upon benches and under
rbors, while numbers of little girl.<, young girls and
ld-young girls, go around and distribute tall glasses
f the whiitest, purest and sweetest milk. Clabber
nd sugar Is also to be had, nd it wias re-commendedl
o me by a native as an astounding novelty. I took
hereof, and ate like a cormorant, but without disclo
ing that I had been raised upion it. SMilk andi clab.
er however do not form the whole bill of fare of a
ilk Garden. Little boys march upi and down with
uits of hard boiled eggs strapped around their should
r, while othipra ptyrform the sanme evolutions with
ala of fresh rolls. The passion of German people
or hard hoiled eggs amounts to positive idoila try !
While in this sarmo village, I took an early morning
wejk, quite into the country, and it being market dlay,
Imwt the tmerry rustics hurrying to town with their
arket rstuff. And hear the manner at transpo~rting
uh stuff! A cart containing thrge newly slain
alves, drawn by a teneet team, composed of a
poamn and a doy; the dog first, the womsan as lead
orse. Another cart full of large cans of milk, drawn
y two gaunt grey hounds; and these tagged with as
customed a gait as Piney-woods oxen. Still another
cart with a huge barrel of beer, drawn by a most dIi
inutive ass, lean 'nd lame. The charioteer in the
latter case was an ola lady, exceedingly farouche in
spect, who smote the ass until he faIrly galloped.

Emma Evans, a girl fourteen years of age, died
suddenly in ork on Sunday evening from
fright. It appears that on the evening named,
deceased went with her father and others to a
saloon to get supper, and on returning to Mr.
Martin's house she went in the basement way,
'followed by her father. As she entered the hall
the servant girl culled out "halls," or squiething
that sounded like that word, and Miss Evans
became suddenly frightened and fell to the flag.
ging. Every effort was, immediately made to
restore her, but she continued in-a swoon and
died in a few minutes. : Dr. Benton made a post
mortem examuination of the body and found that
a blood vessel in the brain had. been ruptured,
and the jury rendered as follows: "That de
ceased came to her death by a shock to the nerv
ous system in being frightened by thinking she
perceived some strange shadow in the basement
above alluded to." In Baltimore, Tuesday night,
James Shannessy, a lad of 15, in passing a
house, was rushed upon by a dog, which so
frigntened him that he staggered and felT to the
ground dead. The emotion had burst an artery
of the heart.
Ti NEGmo RACE.-Bayard Taylor, writing
from Egypt, says:
"Those friends of the African rge who point
to Egypt as a proof of. what that race has ac
complished, are wholly mistaken. The only ne
gro features represented in Egyptian sculpture
are those of slaves and captives . taken in Ethi
opian wars by the Pharaohs. The temples and
pyramids throughout Nubia, as far as the Daref
and Abyssinia, all bear the hieroglyphy of mon
archs, and there is no evidence fi all the Valley
of the Nile that the negro race ever attained a
higher degree of civilization than is at present
exhibited ii Congo and Ashantee. I mention
this not from any feeling hostile to that race,
but simply to controvert an opinion very preva
lent in some parts of the United States."
A gentleman, who employs a great number
of hands in a manufactory in the wist of Eng
land, in order to encourage his work people in
a due attendance at church oh a.late fast day,
told them that if they Wnt to church they. would
receive their wages for that day in the same
manner as if they hai been at work. Upon
which a deputation was appointed to acquaint
the employer, that if he would pay them for
over hours, they would attend likewise the Metho.
dist chapel in the evening.
SEx.tTon Bt'lT.Sa AND SIritUtAL.Ism.-The
late Senator. Butler, of this State. beinJg one of
a coterie at one of Mrs. Brown's and Miss Fox's
spiritual manifestations, asked, with much seem
ing concern, when and where his Aunt Betsey
died. The prompt answer of the spirit designa
ted thd time and place of the good old lady's
death. " You are wrong," said the judge, "for
two reasons. In the first place, Aunt Betsey
did not die then and there; and, in the second
place, I never had any Aunt Betsey." Mrs. 13.

the moral and social condition of the free negroes
in that community. We make the following
extract from one 'of its articles: What is the
fact, as developed in Greene county-? What
has been added to our strength, as a'producing
community, by the influx of negroes ? We find,
upon examination, that some two or three hun

the fruits of gambling, or are those whose mas
