-The Eugiish papers contain a correspond?

minister of this country is a member of the
Church of Rome, and, being such, not only
declines to avow ir, but gi v-.< through a long
lite all the external signs of belonging to a
different communion, is a question ot great
political Importance, and this not only In the
presect, but in any possible condition of the
Liberals or of any otner party; for lt Involves
the question whether he is the basest crea?

would be the sma'lest of punishments which
he would des wc."

with several anti-Grant Republicans, who are
at work organizing an opposition < arty, to co?
alesce wiih the Democracy to prevent Grant's
re-election. All that resuJ" d at the meeting
was a universal acquiescence .in a resolution
declaring in favor of the one-terni principle
for the Presidency. The anti-Giant Republi?
cans expressly declared that they desired to
leave the Democratic parly free from all coa
Utlon, yet to leave it prepared to act with
vigor and wisdom at the proper lime. In the
meantime, the 'one-term' pm y will soon be
ready. It is assumed, to develop its line of bat?
tle. All lt 13 proposed that the Democrats
shall do, as an independent organization, is to
supp?t. the 'one-term' principle and declare
for lt in caucus or convention."

The Condition of* Mexico.
Little doubt nov/ remains that the r?volta
against tbe authority of President Juarez
various parts of Mexico amount to an at
tempt to revolutionize the entire Republic
The Tico Republics, of the 11th ult., ?3 the
journal of latest date from the capita], and
announces the mortification and disappoint
ment with r>bich it is forced to retract its
prognostications of the prosperity the coun
try would enjoy from the re-election
Juarez, and to admit that all hopes of peace
had vanished. The revolutionists and their
sympathizers assert that the armed move
ment "will not disturb the equilibrium
"commerce, weaken confidence, or affect
"the industries of the country; and that
"will soon be over." In other words, the
originators of the movement design merelv
an old-fashioned Mexican "revolation,
which was merely a species of military elec?
tion, with little or co bloodshed, promptly
decided, and not very seriously interrupting
the business pursuits of non-combatants
But Juarez is a man of known firmness and
pertinacity, and it remains to be seen wbelh
er ire will acquiesce in considering the new
civil war in that light.
The ODly recent events of any importance
in. that contest are the successes of Trevino
at Saltillo, and the disturbance in Sonora
and Einaloa,: in which latter the people gen
emily took no part, and "there was no blood
"shed." The usual accompaniments ol
such affairs in Spanish-American countries
-forced loans from the merchants, with a
compensatory reduction of export and im?
port duties-indicate that at Mazatlan and
Guayaroas, as at Monterey, the revolution
means chiefly a renewal of the time-honored
alliance between illy-paid olficiuls and mer?
chants inclined toward smuggling. Tue
capture of the City of Saltillo by the revolu?
tionists, reported at Matamoras on the 5th
instant, would be a decided progress on
their part. Those familiar with the history
of General Taylor's campaign in that coun?
try io 1S47, will remember the important
strategic position of that place in connec?
tion with the Puss of Angostura or Buena
Vieta, a few leagues to the south of it.
The country between that pass and the rich
aud fertile section around the City of ?an
Luis Potosi is sparsely peopled, and bot fur
its mining settlements would be almost u
iesert. The occupation of Saltillo by Tre?
vino will thus probably secure to him the
northern half of Ihe State of San Luis
Potosi, and enable his allies in the States
immediately west of it, Zacatecas aod Du?
rango, to revolutionize them more success?
fully than they have heretofore done.
Should the supporters of Juarez in Souora
and Sinaloa be ut the same time ?giUlued by
the revolution'sts, the latter will then be in
control of alt Northern Mexico, and in a
position either to establish their "Sierra
"Madre Republic" or to join Diaz in esta?
blishing iu the CentrafSiates and the nation?
al capital a government which will keep
them quiet by "free zones," light laxa1.ion,
or none at al], aud a liberal share of otflces
and public plunder to their semi-feudal chiefs.
The manifesto issued by Diaz is by no
means a brilliant document, and it is not
surprising that it has met no cordial re?
sponse from his fellow-countrymen. He
abuses the government in general terms,
and assures the public of his own disinter?
ested patriotism. He invites each State to
send three representatices to a convention
which shall "give the programme of the
"constitutional reconstruction, and name a
"provisional president of the Republic, who
"by no means ought to be the actual deposi?
tory of the powers of war." The changes
he proposes in the constitution ure : The
electiou of presideut by the people directly,
instead of, as now, through the machinery
of an electoral college; ineligibility to that
otflce of every person who, daring the pre?
vious year, hud at any time exercised "any
"authority or charge the functions of which
"extend to all the national territory ;" Con?
gress uot to have any power to designate or
elect high public functionaries, (as, for in?
stance, a president when there is no choice
by the electoral college or the people;) trial
by jury to be made geuerul; and the in?
terior customhouses, (at which goods are
taxed on passing from one State to another,)
to be abolished. It will strike every otie
that, even if tnese changes are desirable, it
may well be doubted whether they are worth
a civil war, even one of the miM-mannered
style in fashion among Spanish-Americaus.
A main point in the programme of General
Diaz, a general substitution of outs for ins
ia the public offices, is not expressed, but
is, of course, silently understood by every?
Pot Call? the Kettle Black.
Representatives Byas and Myers are deter?
mined to take time by the forelock, and re?
lieve themselves thoroughly of their accumu?
lated bile before the passage of Mr. Wilkes's
bilL When one "honorable member calls
another honorable member "a liar," and the
aggrieved member retorts that his assailant
?3 ?a thief," it is not surprising that an at?
tempt, however vain, should be made to de?
clare the use of bad words a penal offence.
But.the operation of the bill should be con?
fined to the members of the General Assem?
bly while that body is in session, and, if the
penalty could be changed to a stoppage of
the per diem of the offenders, the new Blue
law might be regarded as a public blessing.
Even the gentle Bowen was shocked. That
guileless individual, accustomed to the se
rone prohnity of Ck)tigress, was so shocked
by the vituperative language of his legisla?
tive colleagues that he instantly' moved that
the offenders be brought to the bar of the
Honse, and apologize for their conduct.
Fellow-feeling made the members wondrous
considerate, and the resolution was nega?
tived. Alas 1 for the oleaginous Bowen.
Senator Sumner, we are told, is about to
introduce a DOW bill to facilitate a return to
specie payments. His plan is to issue every
month ten millions of interest-bearing legal
tender notes, similar to those issued in
1663 and 1864, and cancel a like amount of
greenbacks, the process to go on until all
the greenbacks are thus replaced. The new
notes proposed shall bear five per cent, in?
ter?s:, and shall be paid in coin at tbe end
of three years, or converted into five per
cent, bonds, at the option of the govern?
ment. By these means, Sumner thinks, a
resumption could be reached without a shock
to business or serious disturbances of prices.
Sumner's plan, it is claimed, bas the ap?
proval of many eminent nuanciere, bankers,
and business men in New England.
ID. MCINTOSH, Esq., the President of the
Executive Committee of the Darlington Ag?
ricultural Society, reports that the late
County Fair was pecuniarily as well as pop?
ularly successful, the receipts being $1250
and tbe expenses $1170. It is now proposed
to form a joint stock company for the Coun?
ties of Darlington, Marlboro' and Chester?
field, tbe annual fairs to be held at Buch
places as may be found most convenient.
THE County Commissioners of George?
town County report to the Legislature that,
durjDg the year ending October 31st, 1871,
they drew and audited claims for $10,785;
the amount of the tax for the year beiDg, at
four mills on the dollar, $8661. The de?
ficiency, therefore, is $2124, or twenty-five
per cent. This is one more proof of the ur?
gent need of a change in the laws regulating
expenditures for county purposes.
