are not in Mexico -with the object of
intervention. The Imperial Govern?
ment has constantly repelled that
doctrine, as contrary to the funda?
mental principles of our rights.
Mexico is at present ruled by a regu?
lar form of government. Anxious to
fulfill the engagements it has made in
respect both to the persons and pro?
perties of foreigners, when the neces?
sary arrangements are made with the
Emperor Maximilian, we shall be so
far from repudiating the results of
our principles as regards, interven tion.
that we shall, on the contrary, accept
them as the guiding mle for all
powers, and it will then be easy to
foretell the time when we shall be
able to effect the return of the expe?

The prominent point of interest in
the news is the speech of the Empe?

French Legislature. The Emperor,
in his speech, said:
The opening of the legislative ses?
sion permits of a periodic exposition
of the situation of the empire, and
the expression to you of my views.
As in preceding years, I will examine
with you the prinoipal questions !
which interest our country abroad.
Peace seems assured everywhere, for
everywhere means are sought for of
amicably settling difficulties in place
of contending with the sword The
bonds which attach us to Spain and
! Portugal are still more strengthened
by my late interview with the sove?
reigns of those two kingdoms.
You have shared with me the gene?
ral indignation produced by the as?
sassination of President Lincoln, and
recently the death of the King of the
Belgians has caused unanimous re?
In Mexico, the Government found?
ed on the will of the people is being
consolidated, and the opposition,
conquered and dispersed, have no
longer a chief.
The national troops have displayed
valor, and the country has found
guarantees of order and security
which have developed its resources
and raised commerce with France
alone from $21,000,000 to $77,000.000.
As I expressed a hope, last year, that
our expedition was approaching its
termination, I am coming to an
understanding with the Emperor Max?
imilian to fix an epoch for the recall
of our troops before their return is
effectuated without compromising
French interests, which we have been
defending in that remote country.
North America, issuing victoriously
from a formidable struggle, has re?
established its Union, and solemnly
proclaimed the abolition of slavery.
France, who forgets no noble page of
her history, offers up sincere wishes
for the prosperity of the great Ame?
rican Republic and the maintenance
of amicable relations, which will
soon have had a century's duration.
The emotion produced in the United
States by the presence of our troops
on Mexican soil will be pacified by
the frankness of our declarations.
The American people will compre?
hend that our expeditions, to which
we invited them, were not opposed
to then: interests. Two nations,
equally jealous of their independence,
ought to avoid every step which
might affect their dignity and their
NEGRO SUFFRAGE IN THE PENNSYL?
VANIA LEGISLATURE.-After a debate
of several days in the Senate of
Pennsylvania upon the resolution ap?
proving the action of the Pennsyl?
vania Congressmen who voted for
negro suffrage in the District of Co?
lumbia, and instructing the Senators
of the State to vote for the same in
the United States Senate, it was on
Thursday last sent to the Committee
on Federal Relations by a vote of
yeas 18, nays 12. The Democratic
Senators, we learn, voted solidly
against recommitment, in order to
bring their opponents to the test
upon the resolution. Mr. Lowry,
the most radical' of the negro fanatics,
voted with the Democracy. The rest
of the so-called Republican Senators,
although having, with Lowry, spoken
so broadly in favor of the "principle"
of universal siiffrage, did not think
it politic to make that au issue in
Pennsylvania; they therefore voted
solidly to recommit.
This, of course, is a mere evasion
and delay. It proposes the question
of negro eqnality, but it holds it sus?
pended over the people; and the only
question is, when can such a meara re
be carried?-Albany Argus.
Paper money is rampant every?

Who H?tes tn? UnUm* .
Our attention has been called to
the folio-wing extract from an edito?
rial in the Louisville Democrat, which j
we have been requested to publish:
The African race \ is an eternal
source of agitation. We have had
nothing to compare with the experi?
ments upon the liberty of the negro
and the slavery of the white' man.
The party in power always hated the
Union as it was. They did not much
disguise their abhorrence of it before
they got power, -and now they confirm
what was in faj?t plain before-that
they cannot Abide the old Constitu?
tion and the 'old Union. . They- re?
solve to change it essentially. Not a
vestige, of the old Government .will
be left. Then it will suit radicalism.
It will give the radicals power, and
that is what they want. They would
not dare to submit these changes to
the whole people North and South
to the people that are to five under
it. They are to-day a minority, with
purse and sword, babbling about free?
dom, which they care nothing about,
except their own freedom-their free?
dom to domineer over and persecute
other people. They do the work of
their fathers, who came to this coun?
try to free themselves and have the
opportunity to oppress and persecute
others. They entertain us with the
same cant, and snivel about right,
justice and God; and whilst they
usurp power and commit perjury,
they put on a sanctimonious face and
prate about righteousness and justice.
They are a body of revolutionists,
with an utter disregard of- all that is
sacred in covenant engagements,
written down and ratified in constitu?
tions. They are doing what they can
.to justify in history the late rebellion.
When men hereafter inquire why the
South attempted to secede, they will
look what sort of Government this
party that attained power made; at
their perversions of the Constitution ;
at their vindictive measures toward
the Southern States; and they will
j not wonder that the South rebelled.
If the party in power would make
such changes by such means, and
adopt such arbitrary and despotic
practices toward the Southern States,
who Cordd blame them for making the
effort to cut loose from such a power?
Neither North nor South ever con?
ferred on the Federal Government th?
power to do such deeds. They never
consented to the existence of such a
power. It is not written in the bond,
and has no sanction but the purse and
But no consideration will stop this
fanaticism. It is mighty to destroy,
but incapable of building up. All
countries have at times been cursed
with it, and we must have our day.
THE "ARREST" OF GOVERNOR MORE?
HEAD.-Many erroneous statements
having been in circulation in regard
to the arrest of Governor Morehead,
at the late Government sale in this
town, it may not be amiss to give a
true account of the matter, as we
understand it. The Governor claim?
ed the property, or at least damages
to the value thereof, but by a ride in
law, before he could proceed to at?
tempt to recover damages, it was his
duty to protest against the salo, which
he attempted to do, intending in the
same connection to make a proposi?
tion to which no one could take ex?
ception, and which would not inter?
fere in the least with the progress of
the sale. But he was not allowed to
proceed far with this proposition,
until he was told by the officer con?
ducting the saleto "consider himself
under arrest." Of course, the Gover?
nor said no more, and the sale went
on, though, we believe, but one or
two of the buildings on Governor
Morehead's land were sold, the people
declining to bid on the others. Late
in the evening, the Governor was no?
tified that, in consequence of his age
and the inclemency of the weather,
he would not be required to go to
Haleigh that night, if he would give
his sacred word of honor to be in
readiness to go there when Tequire d.
This he did.-Greensboro Patriot.

Valuable and Extensive Water Power
in the City of Columbia for Sale.
Ordered by the Legislature of South Caro?
THE undersigned Commissioners, ap?
pointed by the General Assembly of
South karolina, at its late session, will
receive bids for the valuable WATER
POWER known as the COLUMBIA CANAL,
until tho first dav of April next.
The Canal is eight thonsandsix hundred |
and fifty-four yarns long, and tho average ?
fall for the first three miles is fourteen feet,
commencing at ten foet at Upper street, in j
Columhia, and attaining nineteen feet one ?
inch at Bridge street; the remaining two
miles, from Bridge street to its month,
commences at nineteen feet ten inches, and
attains a fall of twentj'-five feet. Fine
building sites exist between the canal and
river, g.ving complete protection to build- i
ings and machinery from freshets. Tho
State, through the "undersigned, will con?
vey tho canal and all its appurtenances,
together with the right of way for sixty
feet on each side of the centre of tho canal
to the purchaser. Compensation to tho
adjacent land owners for the right of way,
to be made by the purchaser, on the same
just and equitable terms that the right of
"way was conveyed to tho Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company, by Act of
15th December, 1845.
This power has been accurately surveyed
by Prof. John LeConte, of tho South Caro?
lina University; his report, together with
the Act of the'General Assembly and this
advertisement, has been printed, and may
bo ?btained by addressing Jas. G. Gibbes,
Esq., Mayor of Columbia.
Prof. LeConte estimates that by doubling
the original capacity of the canal, as re?
quired by the Act, that the power secured
to Bridge street will be 355 horse-power,
the average head being fourteen feet; and
from Bridge stroet to its mouth 532 horse?
power, with an average head of twenty-one
feet, and a current of ono foot per second.
With a current of two feet per second, the
powers would be 710 and 1,064 horse-power;
and if the machinery is not run at night,
tho power may be doubled by accumiuat
ing water in reservoirs.
"As the supply of water," says Prof.
LeConte, "which may bo turned from the
river into the canal at its head, is almost
unlimited, the canal can bo enlarged to an
extent commensurate with the demand for
water power. H desired, it may be made
to supply water to the extent of 5,000 horse?
power or more. In fact, by very simple
arrangements, one-third or one-half, or
oven more, of the whole water in Broad
River, might be turned into such an en?
This water power is literally within the
city of Columbia. The city is now supplied
by railroads penetrating nearly every Dis?
trict in tho State, furnishing the produc?
tions of cotton, rice, wheat, beef and pro?
visions, with little expense at this important
The city of Columbia is supplied with gas
and good"water, the climate is salubrious
and nealthy, being above the miasmatic
region, and invites, for pleasant settlement
and society, merchants, artisans, mecha?
nics, manufacturers and persons of for?
tune and leisure.
The property will he sold on tho following
conditions, to wit: 1st. The purchaser
shall, within two years from the date of
conveyance, complote the widening and
deepening of said canal to atleast twice ita
origininal capacity. (Its original capacity
was fifteen feet wide at top, eight feet at
bottom and four feet in depth; to double
it according to Prof. LeConte's report, it
will require tho removal of 36,107 cubic
yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yards of
stone to Bridge street, and from Bridge
street to its mouth 22,176 cubic yards of
earth-no stone to bo removed. ) That the
same shall always be kept open for boating
purposes, free of charges, to where it is
now used. (This will not interfere at all
with the water power for driving machine?
ry, as boats only descend as far as the first
lock, near Upper street.)
That tho water shall not become stag?
nant, and that it shall not be used for other
than hydraulic purposes.
That one-third or tho sum bid shall be
paid within thirty days after notice of ac?
ceptance of bid; one-third at the expiration
of six months therefrom, and the remain?
ing third at the expiration of twelve
months. Titles delivered on payment df
first instalment, and that the title horein
proposed to be convoyed shall revert to the
State, on default being made of any of the
foregoing conditions, including payment
of all the purchaso money.
This water power with its "location, in the
judgment of the Commissioners, is un?
equaled ly any in the State of South Caro?
lina, and not surpassed by any in the

the Commissioners with references as to
the ability promptly to make good the
