Speech of Hon. James L. Orr.
Wo have devoted much of our spaco to-day
t > the characteristic speech delivered by Col.
Oiut, at Craytonvillo, where a public dinner
was given him by his friends and former neighbors.
Tho speeeh is plain, consistent and
statesman-like. lie is decided upon every
?unjvci niiu question wnicn no touches, ami
lie elucidates them with n clearness and force
peculiarly his own. I lis remarks on re-oponing
the slave trade arc pointed and convincing.
With the balance of our Congressional delegation,
with one exception, (Gen. Boxham)
Col. Orr approves the' English conference
bill, and defends, with signal ability and suetlio
, .vx'VMtnv I'm VJ , tliivi inn IOU3 wr*
dial co-operation with it. In the Union, it if
the only liopo of the South : but, in the last
resort, the South muM rely solely on herself.
The future policy of the State seems to he
clearly indicated in this speech and that of
Senator Hammond's, at Beech Island, as now
In .1 few months, as Col. Our feelingly rc- j
marks, lie dissolves his connection with nsas
our Representative, of his own motion. Entering
public life in his youth, his career,
short as it has been, 1ms been marked with
unexampled success. Although fortune may
have favored him, yet, he is indebted for bis
present position, to his own efforts nml tl?o
; ability with which his Creator endowed him.
Occupying one of the highest positions in the
government, and upon the eve of retiring to
private life, he states his opinions anil convictions
with manly independence and fuir|
ness?giving wise counsel, as becomcs the
statesman and patriot.

men, with good character, should ho placed

j of trust, and of profit. Youth accomplishes
by application and perseverance, ami, where
ability .shows itself, (as in this case) the honor
conferred is mutual, and the benefits great

As matters of future reference, as well as
present curiosity, we give the messages of the
Queen of England and the President of the
United Slates, as transmitted over the Atlantic
telegraph wire :
rue Jlon.the President of the United States: !
The Queen desires to congratulate tlio President
upon the successful completion of this
groat intornatiftnal work, in which the Queen
has taken the deepest interest. The Queen
is convinced that the President will join with
her in fervently hoping that the electric cable,
which now connects Great Britain and
the United States, will prove an additional
link between the nations, whose friendship is
founded upon their common interests and reciprocal
esteem. The Queen has much pleasure
in thus communicating with tho President,
and of renewing to him her wishes for |
the prosperity of the United Slate*.
Tho President cordially reciprocates tho
congratulation of her Majesty the Queen, on
the succoss of tho great international outerprize,
accomplished by the science, skill and
indomitable energy ot the two countries. It
is a triumph more glorious, because far more
useful to mankind, than was ever won by conqueror
on the (ield of battle.
May the Atlantic Telegraph, under the
blessing of Heaven, prove to boa bond of perpetual
peacc and friendship between the Kindred
nations?and an instrument destined by
Uivinc Providence to diffuse Religion, Civilizntioii,
Liberty and Law, throughout tho
world. In this viow will not all tho nations
of'Christendom spontaneously unite in the

and that itscoimuunicnticnssliallhc held suerod
