When only ihe empty formf of a unco free goi

ces, we would counsel passive acquiosconce in th
laws of the conqueror, so long as thoy are, o

relaxation uf any lawful moans fur tho final tr

And although a cloud uf gluom and uncertain

And lastly, wo should rolax none of our efforts

look to tho ballot in our own State for a grcn

Royalty in Sad Plight.
Isabella II, Queen'.of Spain for twenty yoars
past, bas beon drivon.from ber tbrono and Crom
her country. She has sought refuge in France,
where she is now inhabiting a castle owned by
Louis Napoleon. She is ? homely lady of forty,
and, in view of the fact that she weighs 2< O lbs ,
it tnight be said of- her tbr?t ?he is '-nb sardine."
A sardine che certainly is, however, as retard?
her royalty. She is not a person of good charac
ter or good morals ; no moro than waa ber mother
before her. There are three branches of the
Bourbon family; the Fro/icb, now long in exilo;
the Italian, driven from the throne of Naples a '
few years back; and' the Spanish,, now driven
from tho throne'of Spain. Tho Bourbons have
been bad pooplc, and' now they aro protty well
gone to the dogs. At present thero seems hut
small probability that any of them will txtt
reign again. Queen Isahella II combines in her
person tho vices of both the Italian and Spanien
branches, her motherbeing a Neapolitan Bourbon?
Her husband ii a wretched nobody; ho is her
cousin as well ns her husband. By him, sho has
two or throe children ; and by divers other men,
a much larger nu tuber. Her younger sister is tho
wifu of the Duke do Moutponsicr, a son of tho
dethroned Louis Philippe of France.
This naughty and corpulont queen has, atlast,
by hor misrule and her misdeed?, so provoked the
indolent Spaniards, that they have risen and
driven her out of the country. Well'Tor her that
with her crown was not demanded the head that
bore it! Such thing* havo happened in France
The loaders of tho revolution, Marshals Prim
and Serrano, have organized a Provisional Gov
ernment, which is working so well that the whole
country is in profound ponce. Franco is neutral.
Louis Napoleon receives Isabella not as a queen,
but only as a woman in distress. This is ominous.
Napoleon scents trouble. He is discreet
And amidst all this, tho question on: our side
of tho Atlantic is: Shall wc not now acquire Cu

Old South Carolina vs. New Sooth
HR. EDITOR : I would thank you to publish (ho
following views in reference to the proper way to
make np a case to test tho Constitutionality of
tba Reconstruction Acts before the Supremo Court
of the United Stutes :
" New States may be admitted by the Congress
j into this Union ; Lut nu nao Stute ?hall le formed
or .-erected icithin the Juridiction of any_ other

Tho word "Jurisdiction" means tho power to
The Delegates to the Convention which mot in
Colombia in 1SG5 were elected by whito men only ;
and by authority of this Convention an olection
wai bold for members to the Legislature, at which
'election nos? but white men were allowed to vote.
It appears therefore that the body politic of
South Carolina.was, at this time, composed en
tirely .of tho whito race, and that tho Constitution
established by tho Convection did not admit into
the body politic tho -negro race ; bot, on thc con
trary, expressly excluded tit at race from all par
ticipation in tho government of thc State. To
the Legislature elected aa above was submitted
the amendment to tho Constitution of tho United
States, proposed by Congress, which abolished the
institution of Slavery, which Amendment hus, in
consequence of its adoption by this Legislature,
and the Legislatures of other Southern Suites,
become- apart of the Constitution of the United
States. To this same Legislature, at ita session
in 1860, was submitted the Amendment to the
Constitution known as Article XIV. This Amend
ment the Legislature rejected, partly for the rex
sou that Congress was by this Amendment at
tempting to incorporate into the body politic of
the Southern States a new race of men,-new and
not known to the Constitution of our great Sires.
'From ihn foregoing, it is plain that the Congress
did, at least as late December 1866, recognize tb?
body politic of South Carolina as being-composed
entirely of the white race. Nevertheless Congres?,
has, by means of the Reconstruction Acts, at
tempted to form and erect within tho jurisdiction
of South. Carolina-one of the-'Old Thirteen-in
defiance of the action of her Legislature, and in
despite of the Constitution of. tho United SUAes,
anew body politic,-a new State, made up, ip
greater part, of the meanest and dirtiest materi
al?; a State in which the negro far exceeds in
numbers the white man. If this attempt of Con
gress succeeds, then will these new States he en
titled to all the comity due from one State to
another State; thon will these new States be toe
equals, in the Senute at least, in Legislative pow
or of any of the oldest and most powerful and
glorious States composing our grand Republic;
then will the white man's government, in tho
South at least, be subverted, and negro rule inau
gurated. Horrible calamity ! alike disastrous to
ciyjjfUberty, and to the material prosperity of the

Popu lar Disgust at the Results of Negr
The New York correspondent of the Ai
guata Constitutionalist, writing under date t
October 5, say? : j, - <
Whatever may be the result of tbe-elcctio
in November-whether it bc -the success (
Grant and Colfax, with a Congress lo tn a tel
or the choice of Seymour and Blair, with
House to support them-there is one thin
especially sure, and that is a very decide
modification of Northern opinion in favor x
Southern whites is gding'tm, ancT'-iio wher
more plainly than in the Republican port]
There is growing up much uneasiness respect
in g the nature of the monster to which ne
gro suffrage at the South has given birt!;
The negroes are, proving themselves so ag
njressivo and insolent, so dead'to all'mod?r?t
counsels, sd ready to use their nhmericf,
strength for purposes which do not come with
io the (ange of political powers, that genuin
alarm begins to bc felt. ?? .
It begins to be more fully understood, too
that Southern men, with habits and ?duca
tion which have become component puris o
their natutc, cannot and will not. endure ne
gro domination, nor their attempts lo forci
themselves into social equality ; and tint tbi
only way in which sanguinary conflicts cai
be avoided is by assuring the negroes tba
they have strained their tether, and must bi
content tb recede a little from the advuncet
position which they have assumed in the ad
ministration of public affairs. Remember, 1
nm drawing the picture of the future in it*
worst aspect, a* indicated by the change o
tone in the party whose prospects of Bucees*
are now considered the more promising. Ir
case of Democratic success, how mucfi bright
er tbe vista!
The changes in the. tone in dominant Re
publican circles is foreshadowed by the At
lantic Monthly. That is a very pronounced
Republican organ-nearly up to the Sumner
standard. It has been publishing for nome
months a periesof articles entitled " The Man
and Brother," which deal -largely in the
characteristics developed by tho manumitted
slaves. These articles profess to be.the re*
corri of the experieuce of an- officer of the
Freed men'* Bureau. The article iu the Oc
tober number details incidents said to have
occurred at Greenville, S.- C. In this negro
suffrage i* frankly admitted to have been a
" choice of evils;'' that itu" full of danger ;"'
that the emancipation has improved the con
dition of but few of the negroes ; has benefit
ted the mass of the whites much more ; that
the negroes are not at all likely to be able to
compete with the whites for pr??minence in
any walk of life ; arid that they remain poor
und -thriftless where even an European pea
saotry would be prosperous. This is-telling
the iregr?phiUst, who are principal readers ol
the Atlantic, some plain truUis, which are
likrly to cool ih?ir ardor-to have tho negro
made a demigod.- The Atlantic seems al?"
anxi -us to have cfje people of the North fullv
understand the true slate of feeling ut Ihe
8i>uth ; to this end it puhiishrs nn article en
titled '. Edmund Brook," being the autobio
graphy of a house servi nc negro man. Il is
written, as I happen to know, by an accom
plished lady of .South Carolina, whos.- efforts
jh the walks ol' literature date since the dov
ng of the war. These two artiel.-s will do
S ..tithe rn men good to read, although the
first contains much that is disagreeable in
detail, - -
It may be noted, also, that the Republican
orators have ceased to defend negro suffrage
as intrinsically right ; it is merely excused
on the ground of immediate necessity.
ALBERT KING HILL, the elder of two Sons

dead tn be safely bousod in Heaven, and liberated
from the cures, aaxictios and temptations incident
