Ta NiAE or "Maar."-A friend :wants to
know if it be really true that the Pope has forbid
den the name of Mary to be given to cildren in
future. Our answer ia this: Could the concurrent
testimonyof the whole secular and sectarian press
of the country establish the truth of anything that
regards Catholicsor their Church, then would the
fact of this prohibitiona be unquestionable. For
there is not one of them that has not given curren:
cyto this rumor-most of them, we know, without
the least evil intention. But does not bur friend
know that the Pope i. not in the habit of using
the American press, politeal or sectarian, as the
medium throug which to make known his de
tr'eea? He prc'ms them inRome, and transmits
them to the Bishops of the whole worli. If he
pssed any sneh law-which we suppose, out of
deference to the united voice of the press, should
not be denied-all we can say is, that it does not
apply to American Catholics. Let our parents,
then,-continue to do as they have been doing; and
without scruple, having no fear of Roman Pope or
4merican Press before their eyes, gire the sweet
name of Mary to their children, whenever devotion
may prompt them to do so.-Catholic Macellany.
SalPPING LUNATI raox THE UNITrED STAT's
TO ERoPE.-The Liverpool Journal of the 25th
repeats a charge that it is the practice of the
State governments of the United States to ship
to Europe their lunatic paupers. It says:
Most of the sixty-nine lunatics fromn America,
who have been returned, as stated, came to the
workhouse in a condition of extreme wvretchied

;re represented as from all parts of the United
Kingdom, but two of them are putdown as from
Newfoundland, two as natives cf St. Domingm.
Most of them are iditots and imbeciles, most of
them h'opelessly insane, and one cargo is known
to have been shipped from a ltuatic asylum near
Boston, no one 'being appointed in. charge of
them.. Those who are sensible enough to give
an: account of themselves will be removed to
their own parisbes, but there are many who can
gve ino intelligible account, and one woman ap.
parent'yecannot speak at -all. The cruelty, as
yell as the injustice of the proceeding, will be
at once percesva4, from the fact that these poor
ereatures, in nearly-evary instance, long smne

spent the stre'pgth and vigor of theiv days in the

WHAT ARE WE TO DOI
The Democratic Party has sustained such serinus
defeats in the late Northern elections as to render Its
future fat.e a problem of great interest. ihiertos
many of us had hoped that the justice of its Cause
would continut. its dominance, as a party in the coun.
try, to tLhe extent of controlling the legislation of
Congress and the administration of the Government.
But tie recent developments are of a character to
reauce this hopefulness to a narrow and doubtful ba
sio. True, we cannot say that the days of Democratic
power are numbered. It may be that some reae
tion will take place in the Northern mind -in time to
cave the next Presidential Election to the Democracy.
There would rsem to be ground for this expectation,
in the ultra-sectional platform of principles already
indicated by SIwARD. The tendency of his ultraism
may pesibly be, to arouse the sound men and proper
ty-holders of the North to a true sense of the dan
gers that threaten the Union; Abolitionism may de
feat itself by its-own hot haste. Yet the immediate
signs of the times are full of meaning and dark with
coming evil. The tide appears at present to be against
our section, whatever reasonable hope of its ebb is
yet left us; And It is surely a period when Southern
men should take counsel together as brothers and ask
among themselves the important question, " What
are we to do?"
Our intelligent correspondent from Washington
makes a calculation, by which he arrives at the con
clusion that the Democratic Party may still controll
the next Administration. But this. it soems, can only
be done by a coalition with Doustas and his Anti
Lecompton wing of the Democracy. Now, the first
question for the South to consider is here presented : j
Can she, as a section, coalesce with a man who has j
proclaimed principles in regard to the territories so I
discordant with her own cherished views ? Or can
she, as the great element of Democratie strength,
consent to unite again with one who has deserted that
party, on a Southern question, at its time of need ?
and who, by the arguments he has used to save him
self at home, has not only weakened the Democracy
in the estimation of the country, but has afforded di
rect moral aid and comfort to its bitterest political
foes, and the bitterest opponents of Southern welfare?
Shall the South, can the South do this ? For one, as
at present advised, we would say that she cannot do
so consistently with either sectional honor or party
faith. We regard DoUGLAs' defection as the chief
evil agency in the late untoward results at the North
ern ballot-box: and it may thus come to be regarded
as the "direful cause of woes unnumbered" to the
American Uuion. As a politician, the Illinois Sena
tor is doubtless powerful, and able too as a statesman.
But we have ever feared him, since his two-faced ad. I
,vocacy of the Kansas and Nebraska bills,-touching
one chord fur northern ears and a totally different one
for Southern. lie stands forth, to us, in the light of
an ambitious and a dangerous leader of men. In one
point of view, he is to the Democratic Party what
AcnILLZK was to the Grecian Camp: able and brave
enough in fight, but too sensitive to the luxury of com
mand to harmonia. with other leaders for the common
good. le is worse than this, we fear': there is already
ground fur thinking that he would sell the camp to
the enemy, if it were needed to promote his own
But it is said, if we do not co-operate with DoueLAS
the Democracy is down forever. It may be so. And
yet it does seem preferable to risk that result rather
than fraternize again with one who has already de
sorted the feld of his friends, and who may do to
again at their hour of greatest peril. If he and his
followers are to come into the Charleston Convention
of 1860, we trust it will only be under the ban of
censure, or upon a full recantation of error. Whether
they come or not, the South, as matters now stand,
should claim the controll of that Cenvention's action
as a sine goa non to its erganization. She should not
only claim recantation and submission from the Doc
,us faction ; but she should 'sternly se to It, that no
Tariff faction raise its voles in that council, If the
face of things at the North shall not have become
changed before that time, the South should claim to
arrange the order of battle in the Presidential can
vass j And the should so arrange it, that it should
either terminate In victory to our banners, or he the
last political struggle of the Union. The great and
aufllcient argument for this course is found in the
truth, that the direct issue of disunion has become
necessary, to strengthen the frIends of order and jus
tiee at the North, and to ensure to them, and to our
selves, triumph within the Union, or peace without it.
1:t hss ljepp suggested that the Southern Legisla
tures should, at one take Into uionsideration the sub.
jeet, with a view of preparing in time for some mode
of concerted action, should the approaching emerges
cies of our position demand it. Would that it were
done ! WVhould that Georgia, or Texas, or Alabama,
or any other State, would take the initiative of reform
or disunion. As for our own State, she needs to do
nothing. She should leave the matter to the wisdom
of her sisters. She is ready whenever they are, to
make the final great fight. Let her remain as she is,
resolved but silent. If her sister slave States are for
disunion, so is she. If they are for fqrther struggles
in the U~nion, s is shep as long ap a bope of redress Is
left. She is of the Sout~h and with the Somith for weal
er for woe.
lion. A. P. Catmeoux, Presidcnt of the South Care
lina Agricultural Society, maintains that " the work
ing of the unjust government we liv'e under is the
cause of the low ebh of agriculture at the South."
The "unajust government" has done enough wrong
in all conscience ; but we must respectfully demur to
a part of the idea Mr. C~ratuouxm advances. Agricul
tore is not at a low ebb in South Carolina, or at the
South. It has been stadaily advancing for tha last
thirty years, and Is now striding on with renewed
vigor. Our country may not be so 'sightly' as a graz
ing or a farming country; but our agriculture has re
alized more wealth thaan any agriculture on earth for
the last quarter of a century. It is an error to decry
Southern agriculture. It las been jutst the kind of
agricnlture needed to develop th, resources of thes
South and the importance of negr, slavery. No,.
we admit, a time las come when mnore care is needed
to farm our resou-ees; and pari pasIsU with the ne
essity, a superior degree of agricultural skill las been
teadily manifested. We should not, if we cpuli, sl
ier tlap paist of our agricultural expcaienace.

I propose We give the numerous readers or the "Ad
rertiaer " my observations on the state of things (po
litically speaking) as they exist, and the' prospects,
dark as they seem to be, of the probable suecess of
the Democratic party jn 1860.
The fall elections, to which the country has been
Inoking with so much anxiety, have taken place, an4
the results are before us. It is not to be disguised
that serious disasters have befallen the great National
Democratic party; that the party has sustained heavy
losses no one can deny; indeed its rever'es are so
general, that at first sight they may seem appalling.
Every candid and intelligent man must admit that
the Democratic party is the only organization in the
United States that can sustain the Constitution and
preserve the Union. The overthrow of that party
therefore, would be the destruction of the confederacy
itself. How every man, every National man, will
naturally regret, and that most keenly, the day that
shall witness this organization prostrated and ren
The succession of disasters which the Democratic
party has encountered this fall in the recent elections
might be taken, as above stated, as an indication that
it is in a state of decay, and doomed to a speedy dis
solution, or at any rate that it would be so shorn of
its strength, as to becomo impotent as a National or
gaunization. But in my opinion such a conclusiod
would be based upon a superficial view of thesubject.
What are the positive results of the recent elections ?
Let us seo.
In the next Presidential election, supposing Oregon
will be a State, there will he 303 electoral votes, 152
therefore will be requisite to elect. Now can that
number be secured by the Democratic party ? Let us
examine and seo. The Southern Stntes are all certain
ly recure, with the exception of Maryland. This
would give 112, leaving 40 votes to be obtained from
the now slav'eholdiug States. If we are not mistaken
in the "signs of the times," they can be secured thus:
Indiana 13, Illinois 11, Wisconsin 5, Minesota 4, Ore
gon 3, and California 4, making precisely the requis
ite number of 40 votes. Now, this much I maintain
is clearly warranted by events as they now stand,
even in this dark hour for the Democratic party.
Amid this terrible wreck, the party shows sufficient
vitality and power to elect a President. And, more
over, it is not at all probable, that the party will at
the next election, or any future election, encounter the
obstacles which it has bad to contend against this
fall. On the contrary, there is every reason to hope
and believe that the elements of discord which have
now worked so much mischief in Now York, Penn
sylvania and New Jersey, &c., will be in a great
measvuje, if not entirely banithod from the ranks of
the party. Working in harmony therefore, which is
greatly to be desired, much of the ground which is
now lost, might be regained. With a united party
the Democrats could carry New York, Pennsylvania
and New Jersey, and if the City of Baltimore can be
rescued from the lawless rabble which now controls it,
the Democrats will carry Maryland. It is thus to be
seen, that the National Democratic party, even in its
present reduced condition, has in its power the ele
ments to save the Constitution and the Union, anid
flattering prospects of increasing strength amply suf
ficient to elect a President in 1860.
There is one view of the election's already hold that
should not be lost sight of, and should teach Demo
crats a lesson, from which they should derive son:e
prolt in the future ; it Is this: that neither branch
of the party, Lecompton or anti-Lecompton, has prof
ited by the defection, the whole profit having been
reaped by the Black Republicans, who have increased
their strength from eighty-five in the present House,
to one hundred and four in the next. Nothing as yet
has turned up since the recent elections, looking to
the formation of new political parties, out of the ex
isting elements. The fight in 1800 will be between
the hostile combination of Black Republicans on the
one side, and the Democracy on the other. With a
united Demtocracy the world cant beat us, and we will
elect our ma' in 1880, in spite of the combined forces
of the opposition. The friends of Judge Douglas
-say he will pursue a concIliatory course, and will act
in nison with the Administration. He is right on all
questions but the Kansas question, one of the great
et humnbugs of the age. Douglass is very strong in the
West, and will go into the Charleston Convention, (if
recognised as a memnber of the party in full fellow.
ship) prepared to act, he and his friends cordially
with the Democracy, and support moat willingly the
nomination. If he is to be ruled out and not recog
nised as a member of this party, the South will be
fored to takoeither an anti-Lecomptont man or a Black
Republican, as their candidate for the Presidency in
1800. The latter she never can, the former she might
be unwilling to do. No Lecompton man could get
the nomination under the then existing circumstances.
The Union of the party is greatly to he desired, hut
desirable as it is, I would regret to see it consumma
ted at the sacrifice of Southern principles. Con it be
done otherwise ? Time will tell the tale.

nearly completed as to its exterior, and presents a
truly striking appearance. It has gono up steadily
and rapidly under the watchful eye of the reverend
gentleman who has this part of the Catholic Diocese
of South Carolina in charge. He has stood by, like
a true steward of his Master, and watched the faith
ful placiug of each stone upon another. It has been
with hin a labor of love and duty. No single acci

of the work, and good nrder has universally prevailed
around and about the hallowed ground. Much credit
is due to all concerned, in view of the beautiful build

that our community is now about to be favored with
an institution that will prove truly and permanently

making Edgeield his home; and, having been tho

Mr. Games has qualities which would make him a
useful man to South Carolina in the gubernatorial
chair. His race in Edgefleld for the State Senate
was a strong one under the circumstances, and he
numbered among his adherents in the District many
of our best and most valued citizens. There is noth
ing in his defeat here that should operate against him
in any other canvass he may enter; And if his friendu'
seek to place him before the Legislature for the ofiee
of Governor, we think he should have an even start
with the rest, dis-enenmbured of any weight that
might be thought to attach to him from his late de
feat in Edgefield.
TH E RIG HT MAN.
Our Legislature will in a week or two have to elect
the colleague of Senator HAxxoxa, The post to be
flled is the highest had in charge by that body. At
this particular andl eritical juncture, it is a matter of
deep concerua to the Commonwealth to select the right
man for the place. Who that man shall be, it is for
our representatives to decide. Of course all of us
have proferences in the matter, but all of ue have not
the votes to cast. This is the duty and privilege of
those gentlemen whom all of us have helped to elect;
And assuredly it is to he expected that their choice
will be made upon the highest grounds of merit and
ability. The whole people of the Stato will look with in
tenso anxiety towards our Legislature in the discharge
of this imnportaut trupt. We cannot doubt that they
will scorn all dictation in the matter, and excute
their high trust in a manner that will fedoured to the
fame and honor of South Carolina,
THE "REGISTERK" AND HAMBURG.
Tutu Winnaboro Register again pelts Hamburg and
the Adeertier. It says so many cruel thipge, that
we know not where to hegin replying to them. The
safer plan is to give them all the dodge, and say no
more on the subject. We fear our racy brother is de
ficiet in the organ of roverence,-reverence for old
and good things, 'Shat selection of rhymes about
Sr. Pava manifest.. this fact; andl so 4oes the para
phrase upon sacred writ that follows the rhyses,
Hw then can we hope that he would do otherwise
than laugh at sublunary matters, however old and
Dt this we will say : If he lived where we live,
and " know'd as much as what we know," he would
change his tone about Hamburg. Just lot us tell him
*n incident to illustrate the spirit of our Haumburg
dealers. We never mention these things, except when
we have occasiop (as now) to do so. Well, sir,-one
of these dealers, whom you ignore so severely, sent
us the other day a fresh adyprtiscmpnt j and along
with it came a box ; and in that bog wore thsp fillow

One dozs bottles Ale,
Two bottles old Port,
Two do old Madeira,
Half-dosh boxes Sardines,
One bottle old Sadle-bags Whiskey,
One do beat Wheat do
One hex choice Segars,
And two bottles Pale Brandy.
Now this is the way, brother JRegister, that our
Hamburg men do the harndsome thing. With such
a array of quarts is view, den't you tive up your
