-The Rev. Gin-and-MUk Smythe preached
his farewell sermon on-Tuesday to his Eleventh
street (New York) congregation, and will
now take charge of an up-town church, where
his favorite beverage is not tabooed. In his
sermon, he used as the basis of Iiis discourse
the text, "Paul preached to them, being ready
to depart on thc morrow." Mr. Symthe, i* is
stated, was much affected during, the delivery
ot portions of his discourse. He told his
hearers that lie had preached faith, repentance
and Christiiui charity toward all, but he feared
that his congregation had not greatly profited
by his teachings. Some of them had acted
rashly, hastily and unkindly. He feared that
the blessing of God could not rest upon such a
congregation. Io conclusion he said that,
though this was the last sermon he should
ever deliver in this church, he trusted lt was
not the last time he should preach to many who
now heard him.
Wiping Oat Old Scores.
There are so many slips between the cup
and the lip, especially in political tea-par?
ties, that we are not disposed to pin our
faith to the declaration of our Washington
correspondent that the debate of Tuesday
last was the practical disruption of Hie Rad?
ical party in the Senate. This Radical party
bears a great deal of disrupting. According
?) precedent, and every rule of both decency
and deviltry, it ought to have disrupted
long ago. But it tlon't disrupt, and may
possibly stand the racket of a more acrimo?
nious debate than that in which Senators
Ferry and Morton figured so conspicuously.
Of course Radicalism must disrupt some
day. It is laden with-and-, and ts
burdened with --, and -is guilty of j
-, (the reader will please supply each
hiatus with a projectile of the proper size,)
and the party must go to grief even if it
attain the rusty antiquity of the famous
'one-horse chay" before the fated period of |
collapse and ruination.
Returning to our muttons, we desire t o
say that we leave Radicalism in Wash ing
ton to take care of itself, as it doubtless can.
What we have to fight against is a bad gov?
ernment hers in South Carolina, which
government pinches all classes and all
colors, and is, as The Kation says, a dis?
grace to civilization. Our work, like charity,
begins at home, and we will heartily wel?
come Amnesty even if it does not disrupt
the Radical party.
The whole thing is too bad. We want
to wipe out old scores and begin afresh,
%pd for the life of us we cannot see that
there is any danger in making every South?
ern man eligible to any office in the gift of
the people Where is the peril of it ? Even
if General Lee were anxious to become post?
master at Lexington, and President Davis
desired to take his seat in the General As?
sembly of South Carolina, they would be re?
strained by a tender feeling of consideration
for younger men, who crave the official
bench. Neither of the distinguished gen?
tlemen whom we have named would find
any laurel wreath in any place of profit or
trust that the people can bestow. They are
first in the South to-day as yesterday, ' and
the White House at Washington has no
temptations for mea whose images are en?
shrined in the innermost heart of a brave
and generous people. And as much may be
said, ia their degree, of tho other South?
ern men who are now under tho ban. Many
of them would not hold office if they could;
many of them could not if they would, < t#tt
disabilities out of the way, ) and most of the
rest will _ave to^ draw straws with fresher
and younger men.
We assure Congress that there is no immi?
nent danger. Universal Amnesty may be
proclaimed in a hurry, and yet the sun will
shine, and the corn and cotton will grow, in
the Southern portion of that i ti ter es tin 5 in?
heritance known in song as

The French Constitution.
The Constitution, on the ratification of
which the French people were recently per?
mitted to vote, and which they confirmed by
so overwhelming a majority, was promul?
gated January 22d, 1852. It has been sub?
sequently modified by an Imperial Decree,
December 2d, Y-Bo? ; by the "Organic" De?
cree, December loth, 1852, and by several
Senalus Consult?. It vests power in the
Emperor, in Ministers appointed by him, in
a Council of State, a Corps L?gislatif, and a
Senaje, which ?3 the "moderating power" or
pouvoir pond?ratelo: Ail changes in the
fundamental h-V of the State arc proposed
by the Sens..-.. If sanctioned by the Empe?
ror, they become Senalus Consult?. The
Senate, as it at present exists, cannot be
termed part of the General Assembly. It
moves in a.different sphere from the Corps
L?gislatif. The former has charge of the
Constitution, the latter of the ordinary laws.
One is a constitutional and the other a legis
The amended Constitution is very concise.
It is divided into six chapters.
Chapter first recognizes the grand princi?
ples of 1789.
Chapter second confirms all the powers
heretofore grauted Louis Napoleon by the
people, regulates the succession, by allowing
the Emperor to choose his own successor
among his descendants, excluding always
females and their heirs. It regulates royal
marriages and provides for a regency.
Chapter third gives the governiug power
to the Emperor, with the aid of the Minis?
ters, Senate, Corps L?gislatif and Council of
State. It provides, however, that the Con?
stitution can be modified by the people at
the suggestion of the Emperor. In other
wordB, if he does not like the experiment,
he can set aside the whole machinery of |
government, and, through the army, con?
trol votes enough to get such powers as he
Chapter fourth makes the Emperor re?
sponsible to the people, to rhom he has a
right of appeal. He is responsible to no one
else, and Ls given by this chapter pretty
much autocratic powers.
Chapters fifth and sixth relate to the Sen?
ate and Corp3 L?gislatif. The Senate, com?
posed of life members, is called and prorogu?
ed at the will of the Emperor. So with the
Corps L?gislatif. Its members are elected
for at least sj? years. The Bittings of these
bodies are public, but at the request of any
five members in either house the proceed?
ings become secret.
Tho other two chapters are general in their
The practical effect of the Plebiscite on
the 8th instant, by which this Constitution
was ratified, is undoubtedly to strengthen
Louis Napoleon in the eyes of France and
the world, by giving once more, to the pow?
ers which he has virtually usurped, the
sanction of a formal popular vote.
The Letter of Colonel D. Wyatt Aiken.
We call attention to the letter of Colonel
D. Wyatt Aiken, printed in our is3ue this
morniug. Colonel Aiken declares, with em?
phasis, that if his remarks in the Immigra?
tion Convention have given offe?fe, it is be?
cause they were misunderstood.
CAPTAIN T. C. DUNN, candidate for Con?
gress, addressed the electors of Marion on
Thursday last. The Star says: "We feel
"confident that we express the general
" opinion, when we say" Captain Dunn left
" the impression on his audience, that, do
" what they might, the race was simply one
" of Honesty vs. Dishonesty. It is essen
" tinily so, since the speaker avowed him
" self a thorough Republican, and hence as
" to politics the candidates do not raaterial
" ly differ. On motion, the meeting ad?
journed, generally well satisfied with what
" the speaker bad said."

WE are glad to see that Senator Sawyer
is an out-and-out foe of proscription and dis?
franchisement If he had talked for a week,
he could not have put the whole case better
than in Baying that the South is now obliged
to take, as office-holders, "men who are in
" competent and rascals." Mr. Sawyer is
an honorable exception on both counts.
No WONDER that the people are loaded
down with taxes. A Radical sheet in this
city charged the State TWO THOUSAND DOL?
LARS for publishing, as an advertisement,
the new Code of Procedure. And the prir
cipal stockholder in this Radical sheet ir it.
K. Scott, Governor of South Carolina,
A CURIOUS account of the "Sampson
" affair," as compared with the "Tolbert
" affair," is given by our Columbia corres?
pondent. It is plain enough that the Ring
are afraid of an investigation, and will avoid
it, if to do so cost them thrice thc amount
of Sampson's bail.
THE Mackey faction did all they dared do
to break up the Reform Meeting at the Hi-,
berniaa Hall on Monday night. They de?
mand Free Speech for themselves, but are
not willing to accord that privilege to
others, _ _
OF THE forty delegates chosen to represent
Charleston in the June Convention, sixteen
are colored men. The Reform Mass Meeting
had thirteen colored vice-presidents and two
colored secretaries. This is "toting fair"
from the start.
A GENTLEMAN of this city, a shrewd cal?
culator, declares that the article of The Na?
tion, denouncing thoScott Government as "a
"disgrace to civilization," has gained 5000
votes in this county for Retrenchment and
WHY do not the Radical papers print the
scathing articles of their own organ, The

ment of South Carolina tobe "a disgrace to
'. civilization ?"
