'Ther~e are three points of' view in
which every question, t hat comnes be
fore thle country, should be regarded
by the Statesman ; first, its bearings
considered nationally, secondly, its
bearings considered sectionally, and
thirdly, its beari ngs upon the interests
of the State of the representative.
Perhaps a regard to self preservation
aid self' interest would suggest their
ii p(rIanlce in icoiiverted order. low
ever that may be, those three phases
are immediately suiggested, by every
subject, to the leg_-islator. Nor is
either o. thern unimportant. No true

As the acquisit'on of Cuiba can have
no special bearing upo I the Stae of'
South Carolina, but can oIly effect her
as her interests are iiseparally coI

Mr. Boye accordingly only notices
the importance of the acquisition as
it may affect the general go vermnielt
and as it may aflfect the South. lie
