f& It Is reported that Dishep Onderdonk has
been irestored to lisi official position, by the Pro..
Senator Chesnutss Position.
It is not in our power this week to publish the
late speech of SENATOR CREsNUT before his con
stituents on the other side of the State. We may
be permitted, nevertheless, to state its general
scope, and to give a few extracts showing its prac
The speech as a whole is worthy of the honora
ble Senator and of the position he ocoupies in our
Congressional Councils. Its calmness and high
tone arc admirable; and he covers the ground he
proposes to discuss with decided ability. We are
in no respect disappointed in the speech. It coin
cides to all intents and purposes with the views
expressed a year ago by Senator HAMoND in his
Beech Island and Barnwell speeches ; nor does it
differ on any essential point from the recently
published views of Hon W. W. BorcE.
The Senator first gives an interesting review of
Southern policy in respect to the Union. He con
clusively shows that from the incipiency of the
government down to the present day, this policy
has been fair, liberal and conservatire,-that the
South has contributed largely over her proportion
ate share to the strength and power of the govern
ment,-and has made eareasion after concession
for the peace and stability of the Union ;-In a
word, that she has been true to the memories of
the founders of the confederacy and faithful in all
things to the obligations transmitted by them.
The second division of the speech is devcted to
a discussion of the great question between the sec
tions, and the dangers of the approachi'ng "irre
The Senator then addresses himself to the ter
ritorial questiAn with remarkable directness and
perspicuity, showing the fallney of Judge Douo
LAS' argument in several of its prominent features,
and upsetting the theory of popular sovereignty
in the territories as claimed by that statesman.
These are the main topics discussed by Senator
CREsNUr in a speech which must have occupied
him more than an hour, and which, we doubt not,
will be received as an argument with general ac
ceptance throughout the State.
But in times like these, the people wish to know
precisely the extent of the practical advice dealt
out to them by their leaders. Wo propose to make
a few extracts from the speech, that the extent of
Senator CussauT's counsels may be seen.
His first practical suggestion is that of Southern
union. A part of what he Pays on. this point is
quoted in another article of our present issue; the
reet runs thus:
"-I am persuaded there are no fundamental differ
eucc3 which ought to divide the slaveholding
States. They have equal intelligence, patriotism
"Having common int'rests, they ought to have
common purposes. i know they have been divided
in some measure by recent issues in the demo
cratic party. They ought to be especially wary at
such a time how they allow themselves to be tempt
ed, like boys, to display their agility by catching
at every apple of discord which the adversary may
throw among them. They should accept no issues
which are cunningly devised only to distract.
Of such a character in the pretended issue of a
lave code by Congress for the territories. When
id the South ever ask for such a code? We do
ot want it. It is the last thing shat should be
asked of Congress. If tendered, we would accept
the gift of no Euch Trojan horse.
The proposition to re-open the African slave
trade has not yet attained strength enough to di
ride the South. I regret, however. to see it intro
inced. With great deference to the distinguished
zentlumen who urge it, it seems to me as another
Pandra's box, without even hope at the bottom.
As mnensuro of public policy, it is altogsether im
>ractiiable at this time. The State gave the pow.
r to Congress to proshibit it; Congress has done
). Utilil the obligation is cancelled, South Car
ina will not put in the plea of non lfuesitum to
ier own boud. If urged as a political issue in
he South, it will divide the State Rights party
rom the Sabine to the Potomae,-from the Atlan
ic to the Mississippi. It becomes ur wisdom.
hereforo, in the present condition of affairs to let
Will you next ask, wh at says the Senator on the
ourse to lbe adopted bsy the South in regard to the
Presidential contest ? We answer with the follow.
"The present indications are, that the Sotuth is
irding on its arm'r for te eg g y~i" "'t th
,an of battle; and that it intends to fight with a
ugged energy that will allow no defeat. I trust
t I sanction no other principles than those of
he constitution, which are broad enough to em
>race every true man in the republic; in fact, let
he battle be for the constitution, and against the
uetmies of the constitution, and not merely for the
letion of a President. In my otpiiini the elec
ion of a President will be of little or no avail, en
ess it bring with it a sentiment that will replace
he constitution firmly on its basis, and thus estab
ish the equality of the States and the rights of
oth sectioins alike-otherwise the battle will re
ur with greater odds against us. In such a eon
ot 1 will heartily join with those in whose fate I
m bound, however little I may expect from the
If you say the Senator is not suiliciently expli
it, we answer, this is all that he has thought pro
er to announce. But from what is suaid, the in
ercnce sppears fair that Senator Cnrasser would
ave Sotuth Carolina go into the National Demto
ratic Coniveintioni with the Southern States and
ntend for a nr.minastion that shall cairry sound
.nstitumi'.naal principles into power. It umay be
hat the laitform of principles upon which the
minee shitll -tand ought to be made to cover
istinctly the rights of the South in the territories.
ut perhaps we draw too far upon the Senator's
.gcage on this point. Fur we observe that he
sewhere see'na -o look to the Courts as our pri.
nary safegt'ardl in the territories, and does not
otmpate any kind of movement by the South
r her Repre-scntativyes unlhess a " territorial hegis
ature should undertake to limit the jurisdiction of
ts Courts so as to exclude the rights of slavoown
re." But take the Senator's words as they stand
n reference to this matter; they are important:
"I a ffirm tlisat the courts, territorial aind federal,
n their proper order, will mul mnust take jutrisdic
ion of all causes properly instituted, to determuine
he rigbts of property, no matter whcthecr that prop
rty be in slaves, clucks or oxen. An~d they will
are jurisdiction under the constitution without
tatute. Bunt, if a territorial legislature should un
ertake to limit the jurisdiction of its coutrts, so a-~
Sexc-lude the rights of slave-owners, then I uan
letake to sa that, having thus manifested as pur
p-se to make war upoii prsoperty instead oif giving
t prtcin it has ceased to perform the miain
:lonetiur. of g.vernment, ansd iught to be abboliehed.
-ne having a just conception of the obje-:ts oh
; einisacut, r;tn hesitate to say thast ny govrns
nenil, of watever forsmn, n-herever existing, whieb
.lierately, and,. as a system, usdku war sn the
1roperty sit her citizens, ought to lie abolished."
3May wec not .dduce froim this paiss.sgo the eoui
elusion, that Senat'r Curasser sees no neeeisity
for any present addition to the Cincinatti pinst
form, being con'inced that the courts "ise Sldn
wil" stanad'y ensr right.s, and if thsey are psreven
ted, that then we will have a living isate to fight
for, viz: the abolishment of the usurping tersitorial
government. This is sound and sensible doctrine,
ant. we- hospe we interpret the Senator correctly.
-The only iothe'r practical point upon which Sen
ator Cnrasser touchea, is the considher.stison, wrhat
are we to dto if a Black ltel.uhle-n lhe els-etedl

" Quashio " ands his whole famnily dawm tso the tir
ria c~mce is "puerile andc uaurd." Bunt still, stays
he, "if this combination " (of the Faee State'
aainst us) " is effected, we taust have this cosnflict
which threatenis to be irrepressible indeed." The
programme of the diouminaint Republicans is given;
1st. The remodelling of the Jtdiciary; 2nly, Thet
abolition of slavery in the District of C,luimbia:
3rdly, The suppression of the slave tradle between
the States, &c, &c., Then says the Senator:
But at whose cost is this mischievous folly to be
repeatedi That's for yosu to thinik of. Strange
as all this may seaim. it is the utterance of am Senn-.
tor of intellectual afhihjty, of gentle manners, lbut
unflinching purposse-ohoe wis, wouldl be ats fit a
successor to the distinguished nsenator~ from New
York, as any in the republican ranks. If this
party, chieftaineud as it ise, should be permittedl to
holdi the reins of governmest, such will be "s the
bill of fare " of that feast to which youa will he in
vited. (Jo to it with what appetite you may, for
myself I would nione of it.
Whether or not this means that the South should
move for disunionm on the election of a Black Re
publican President, the rpider nmust determine for
himself. We are somewhat ;t a, !sso, becanse the
Senator had a little while before spoken as fo~leqs:
" If this party be not overthrown by some signal
an'd crushing blow, in a few years it will prsobably
asorbi the entire politicail power of the freessoil
States; and, by consequence, the' t ical power
rf the Union. Whenever it can c-, .mantd the un
divided patronlage and distribution of the public
munaey, by seizing on the the Executive as well as

Since the appearance of Senator Cuare s's
speech, the minds of many South Carolinians have
doubtless been led to look back to the spoken sen.
timents of Senator HAMMOND, for the purpose of
comparing the views of the two, and of ascertain.
ing the difference, if any, between them. Those
who have done so, will be surprised perhaps to
And, that, as to any definite line of political ac
tion, Senator HAxxown went quite as far a year
ago as Senator CHESNUT did last week. Indeed,
the only diference of any consequence between
them, is to be found in this: that while the one
looks confidently to the success of the South in
the Union, the other sees a cheerless prospect and
a dreary future. Both are equally loyal to the.
best good of their section. Both urge the union
of the South as essential to her success in or out
of the Union. Both are alike sound on every prin.
ciple connected with her rights. Both counsel
caution, forbearance and moderation, as the true
groundwork of her policy in the future. While
neither one of them looks to any immediate issue I
involving disunion; neither of them advises action
of any sort on any existant wrong; neither of
them is a disunionist per e ; neither of them fa
vors the Slave Trade agitation, or any other fire
brand of dissension; neither of them gives any
counsel likely to interfere with the Integrity of
the Democratic party in 1860; And neither of
them sees any near necessity of a Southern Con
Upon the two topics which fill out nearly the
whole of Senator CEsNUT's speech-his history
of the South and his argument on popular sov
reignty,-Senator HAMMOND did not express him
self at Barnwell. But he did in his speech in the
Senate; and all remember his condensed and pow
erful presentation of those points.
Even in the difference between them which we
have indicated, they both couple their convictions
with the same declaration of undivided allegiance
to the South. Senator HAMMOND said, even in the
midst of his hopef I confidence: "But if the
South determin -, and whenever*she determines,
to throw off her Northern friends and dissolve this
Union, I need hardly say that I shall, without
hesitation, go with her fully and faithfully."
Even under his strong belief that the great bulk
of the Southern People did not seek disunion, he
still announced the opinion that they would
"promptly accept it as an alternative rather than
submit to unconstitutional abridgemients of their
rights." And did he not further say that "the
dissolution of the Union is an alternative that we
have always at command, and for which we should
be ever ready ?" But, more than this, is it not I
true that even upon the matter of a Black Repub
lican Presidency, he is fully as definite and as
determined in opinion as his junior colleague?
Read the Senator's emphatic language In his Barn
But if I am all wrong-if my facts and reasoning a
are false, and my hopes delusive-if, in 1860, they w
beat us-what then? These are questions that ol
may well be asked. And the answer is obviouv. b
We must be prepared; and the very efforts we
must take to prevent such results will better pre.
pare us than any course we can pursue that I can
see. We must be prepared, I say, to take care of
ourselves, whatever may come. It is clear that
the slaveholding states of this confederacy, what..
ever hazards they may choose to incur by remain
ing in alliance with a majority of uon-slaveholders .
now so inflamed against them, must ever and at
all times hold their destinies in their onn handr. gr
They can never permit any foreign power to
legislate in refereneo to their peculiar industrial ?
iystem. whether to abolish orto modify, or impose )3i
ndue burdens on it. Such legislation must bo ,o
resisted with all our means, anrd without regarl to /
ny consequences. If it should so happen that
he free States of this Union, Iing now, and al.
rays to be, in a majority, do establish a political '
inc between the two sections and the two sytens. -
if labor, legislate upon it and maintain it. then
hey will form a power as foireign to us as an' a:
:ation in the world, and wve cannot submit to it. .ga
We respectfully challenge those of our contem- te1
aorarics who hare condemned the views of Senator
IAxxoND, but are now extolling those of Senator
'HESNYT, to' take the speeches of both, and make a
urn', *'ttney do noit arise from the task convinced

and in my judgment weill, combine those States
against us. In such event, what have we to ex
peet? We must have "the irrepressible conflict"
waged in hot earnest.
So that the " bill of fare " in the next preceding
quotation is not to be arranged, until a Black Re.
publican shall have been elected, and afer that,
the power of patronage shall have combined the
Free States against us. Now we confess that this
does not look near as much like distinct advice is
the downright position.tanken by Mr. BorcE, vis:
that the South ought to move for dissolution im
mediately upon the election of ia Black Republican.
Does, or does not, Senator Casu'r's language
warrant the assertion that be counsels any such
movement in that specified contingency? We
So far then as we understand the practical ad
vice of Senator CHEs::ur, he, like Senator HTAm.
MosD and Mr. Bovec, counsels caution and union
in the Southern ranks as an indispensible requisite
to any movement for disunion ; he is indefinite,
in fact may be regarded to have said nothing one
way or the other in relation to the State's going in
to the Democratic convention; he is most probably
(by iapliestion) In favor of some sound Southern
man as the nominee of that convention ; he in
olines to advise some Southern movement -on the
election of a Black Republican to the Presidency,
but is by no means as positive so Mr. Boycz; and
he does not seem to advise, any more than Mr.
Boyce or &nator HaxxtoNn, certainly not so dis
tinctly as Gener.l BosuAX, that the South should
demand a recognition of her territorial rights over
and above the Cincinatti Resolutions and the
safeguard of the Courts.
We are satiefied, for.one, with the advice of Sen.
ator Cnssic, as far as we can ascertain it from
this speech. We are not cavilling at him or his
views. But we do most respectfully remonstrate
against the injustice of those journals which con
demn Senator HlAntstoxn and Mr. BoYcE, and yet
lanud and applaud Sentdor CHESNUT. In principle,
the three are agreed ; nor is there yet any evidence
that they will diverge ii practice.
The Mercury Loses Its Temper.
In a recent article of the Charleston fercury,
entitled "SOUTH AND NonTM," we find a concate
nation of epithets which we do not remember to
have seen out-done by the New'York Tribune in
its most angry days. Certain allusions by our
contemporary to points that have been made by
Mr. Borcs and others, render it sufficiently clear
against whom he designs to hurl this tirade of
detraction and abuse. It is with deep regret that
we find ourself called upon to notice such an arti
cle in an esteemed South Carolina journal; the
more so, as that journal has a prominence and a
circulation abroad which will carry its shafts far
beyond the limits of our State, and may thus con
vey an estimate of the style and temper of our
State press not conformable to the generous sym
pathy and fraternal forbearance which prevail
amongst us in political as well as social life.
It is to be hoped that this article of our contem
porary was written without diliberation. Surely,
the usually thoughtful editor of that paper could
not have observed thuheaping.up of obloquy which
his pen indited in the instance before us. Look
at the bitter phrases in a wass, and say whether
you have ever before seen anything like it in
outh Carolina journalisin : Contemptible eoirse,
ll storts offeffitire.-braze cfontery ad tratic'
uts policy,-base and lypocriticael pro.fesCionoe,-ce
reyard then with a loathing, abhorrence, and con
empt, utterly ine.rpreoeible ;-these aro some of
the amiable terms that figure in the .lfcrcury'
little article of a half-column. Of courae no one
will regard such wild invective otherwise than as
he unlucky ebullition of a distempered eal.
here can he but oe feeling amongat reasonable
en at the South in view of .such displays of tem
er, and that feeling is one of deep nmortifiestion,
-having in it far more of sorrow than of anger.
e ask our contemporary to pause in this course
finfamed vituperation.> We ask him to remoember
te~1te to the weal of our Southern honmes and
resides, though differing as to the method of
acring and perpetuating that end. We call up
i his view the proud prestige of the Charleeton
fereury itself, and its noblo msision in the cause
f Southern Union-and we ask : is violh.nt la
~uage like that we have just quoted, in any way
alculated to sustain its well-merited celebrity or
o promote its ability for good in the future ? Al
hough the Adcrrtiuer may perchane come in for
ts share of the 3ferrury' denunciatory outpouring,
e are yet far from retorting a single epithet. but
ontent ourself with recommending to general at
ntion, the subjoined emphatic advice, given
vith the earnestness of a true patriot by Senator
CusUT, in his late speech at Camden:I
In my judlgmeit, the first great imperative ne
esity of the South, at this juncture, is amon
man.<';II thusr who comjwleea it.
Those wcho ,'re altrony, nwess bear with the injirnu-ni
ie of the weack, whether of hot hunate, turdy tactwun
e orerruuiitiontse nuuel. Do this anti all will be
right. To effect this, the South nmust counsel
'gether a ith rasndor, courtesy ead toleration'. N o
nei, has the right among eqaals to gsreumte that he
al ctogether right, und uthecre alttgether wronyg.
uch presuinptioin is harsh und offensire, and can
eni only in disaster. I cauntioNa sy cvMntryniea
yeintnt the i,udiulycee of any such temaper.
Another mark of the unkind tone of this e-ingu
lar article, and one too which muanyin this latitude
will repe-l, is the unnecessary andi far-feteched fling
at the Honu. F. W. PicENs, interjectionally e
grafted uhon the following sentence: "RBE? J
nicaran (l-itely beplastered with praises by the
Un, F, W. PiegEcNM. in a letter from St. Peters
urg. as worthy ofcall conjfdruacc anti admiration)
got up the isothermal line &c. &c." Now what is
the siinple truth of this remiark by Col. PIcKE-NS?
iscsing the question of popular sovreignty with
aecgency and orthodoxy whi'ch even the )Iereurg
canot tind f'ault with, he camne to allude, in the
coclusion of a friendly corresponence, to one
with ehiite he rememberedl to have conversed
-aly in years past ott this v'ery subject; and these
rc his wordls: The lHon. Rt. J. W.Ken has a
mind emiincuit/.y gnultiied to inrieereyute thee ao,
rerc raer. of uiieereignty, and I feel sure he
ould agree with the views expressed above, i~e
has a hiyh eand conmpreheir~ genaius, and I recol
eet one we had a full conversation on sovereign
ty and sovreign piower, in which we exactly agreed."
Jfrom this natural homnage of intelleet to intel
et, the Jlsrcury draws the gratuitous sneer we
hae copied,--gratuitous, because the remarck of
Col. lKEx5 eunntat be macfe to warrant the .ler
,.ye's inaterparetation (see our italies) withaiut dlis
tortiun and exaggeratiin. Bat this is not to be
