The public pulse for the last week or two
seems to be in a passive or quiescent state, w
apparently awaiting events anticipated to tl
come with the Ides of March-and upon the te
nature of those events there seems to be no ti
settled opinion. Indeed, no one appears to J
have a decided op rcon upon any subIViter" wl
policy of the U. S. Governagm at lies in the or
ence to the seceded Se eveloped within the an
womb of u Irtnight. ad
net;a or Peace--which is it to bet Opin- pe
ions upon this suhject seem to be abhut equal TI
ly divided in the public mind. Our wisest "w
sud shrewdest politicians favor the former, it
many of whom considering it an inevitable
event; while these are others, cautions and de
discreet in the formation of their opinions, re!
who adhere to the belief that peace will pre th
vaiL If so, it will be the flirt instance on re di
cord of the withdrawal of a boly of people n1o
from their Government and the formation of cit
another or new Government within the origi- of
nal boundaries of the first, witl,hout the col:i. tic
sion of arms. Llogever, this unprecedented co'
occurrenui i,ay t4ke place. Much that is i
uniprecedr'utud-niuch that is great and god. `Ti
Ike may he ihold for and looked for thlrouhl o
the superior intelligence and expanded minds all
of a fee and vituous people such as ours.- "u
'the "Pen is mightier than the Sword"-and wi
the epoch of its aublimest victory may now gr
be at hand. ' lie
Late intelligence from Washington seems to de
verify the belief that tlhis vict ry is to eliuec. I l
)espatches in the 'icay'i.e of Wedine day. a
which that cautons journal says can be isn- th
plicitly relied upon, assert that the incormnti at
adinini-tration will not blockade our ports nor
attempt to collect the revenue, atl that a vol ii
untary surrender of the frte andl mtiltary Tr
posts will he made if they are i ot attacked th
before the new adm;inisrat;ion c nures into th
power. If this is so-if this declaration, the ui
truth of which the Piaiyune so read y en. se
dorses, really emenates from the offlicial head thI
to hbe inaugurateli next Monday, asserteld in t
all earnestness, then there will be no cause tl
for war-peace will continue, and priosperty, at
and qu et and happy homes, which have for a re
season been dti-turbed, wi'l anain rev:s:t nour fi
people. If,-aowever, this decleration should
be a ruse, to deceive the South, we cannot see 1
what advantage cou'd accrue flroml t to the oi
Government of Lincoln, as the very fiat in- t1
dication to retake the for I, &c., or if they are as
not surrendered, or the Northern troops are t
not withdrawct from Sumtcr anl Pickens im. s=
mediately after the inauguration, the Southern
Confederaeywill consider such evidence as tan
tamount to a dec.rlhation of war, and at once
order our troops to take them-and to order

While Washington is now the attractive P

iration of the Government of the Southern a
Confederacy. In the construction of its con- i
stitution, which was to have been reported is
on Wedpesday, the people may rest assured
that the fullest latitude will be given to Son- I
them industry and interest, and that the fu.
tore of the Confederated States, if unaccom.
panied by war, will be brightened with a gran.
dear that Republics and a united people, hi
therto, have never ezperienced. c
Looking then to the political barometer as f
indicated by the sentiments and upressions
of the people North and South, as well as by
events, we can see nothing that foretells that
the hurricane of human passions and ambi
tions, typified by the clash of arms and the
roar of artillery, is soon to overspread and V
darken our sunny land. We shall continue
to believe, till stern realities undeceive uan
that the present is an age of peace as well as 1
an age of reason..

have rceived rom the pullihenrs, this highly
interesting periodical for March-its equal, as
a literry work, to our taste, to be fonnul no

Shamroch," and "Pontise, or the seige of De
troit," both illustrated, the latter, a historical
and highly intelting sketche, s alsoi the illuh
trited article of "Adventuires on the New
foundland Banks." It contains, besides, its
usal amount of mliscellaneous and historical
matter. Our readers must recollect that this

By 'resterday's ?laial.
We are of opinion that we shall place but
little confidence in future in telegraphic des
patches. It now appears that, in the Peace
Congress, Franklin's plan, a mordfed one of
Guthrie's, was the one adopted, and that by
a vote of 9 to 8. But, as we say els.where,
it matters but Ittle what plan or whose plan
is acceptable, it will Ie of short duition -
Congress, however, will vrjtct the plan that
has been adopted, so it is reported. Thus,
has ended in a fizzle, the Soutlerners say, the
Peace Conference, which has adjourned.
Messrs. Bell, Loug!as, Rives, G*,thrie and
.others, have hail an interview with 1Mr. Lin
coln, and earnest'y entreate.l hmi to interpose
for a settlement of the difficulties.
It is rumored that Mr. B.ll will be invited
te a sat in the Cabinet.
In the Southern Congress an export diuty
of an sighth of a cent per pound on cotton
has been passed. A resolution was adopted
inquiring into the expediency of constructing
several steel Iplated frigates. An act was pass
ed to borrow fifteen millions of dol'ars, paya
ble in ten years, with 8 per cent interest.
We perceive nothing of special interest in
the proceedings of the Legislature, by this
mail.
It is reported that i"mense quantities of
goods are being shIpped from New York to
the South, to avoid the new tariff of the Con
ederated States, soon to go in operation.
SialRIon I Prlot.s.--.s the times ca;ll
for fire-arms, we would nmformri the reader
that Mr. O. S. Jcssases, Jeweller, 20 Camp
street, New Oileass, (whose advertisement is
aen weekly In our columns) is said to have
thei moet superior description of ptstol that
hs ever appeared in the South. We are
eorry that we are not able to explain their
merits, not having seen one. Give Mr. Jsh
imxes a call, when you visit the city.
Ta Tows TMu.-A shooting affair
occurred on Monday night at the resi
dence of Mr. Lafyette Caldwell, whiich
created much excitement iit the city
yesterday. Mr.' ('hares McMain, an,
honorable and high-toibtd ylntg man of
this city, together with sutie of his
friends, were on a visit a,. Mr Call
well's house, anl becoming offended at
what they thonght ungentlemanly con
duct on the part of Mr. C. before the
ladies, they left the house, and imme
diately dispatclhed a messag( byy Mr.
McMain for an explanation. \While e
deavoring to deliver the message; Mr.
McMasin received a wound in the right
side of the breast just below the armpit,
which is pronoomced to be serious by
the physiciaps. Several shot passedi
between the parties in quick succes
sion. After wounding' Mr. McMain,
Mr. Caldwell delivered himself up to
an oeeer of the jaw.

Were we tio venture a prediction, we
r would say that we here have tile thgerm
- of a Republic which history, at no far
distant. day, will reeol d as thle rmost
I powerful and wealthy of ancient anlI
Smodlern timel. It will grow, and that
- too, rapidly, by addition frmlr the North,
a from the South, and froti the WVest. Its
1I ;verlnlenclt, iUl'Aedtl of every nition
t, li of , l.llidati ln, tii, state will hesitate
to, take Phelter unller its viiilgs frol any
Sfear of lIsinu its sivereignty. The bur
dens of that iGovernment will le light.
It will be administered according to til
h Southern idea. In the exercise of itt
powebs it will be conflied within thie
Slegitimate sphere of thel Constitutiii-.
It will not lie used as til eungiare of car
Sruption. It will not ihe used an~. in.
f strument for executing tllho(ie prijectsa
S.which be~otg only to the State Givln,.
n IleIts or indlividuai enterprise. It will
Sbuild no railroads or ca alsh. It will
K undertake to build itp no tnanufactur
s ingu interests at the expense of ther
ainterests. Hence, its hurdin,s will lie
Slight, alt consequntlly thle trade will
be nearly or quite free.
t Capital, which has for thle last thlree
Squarters of a century been aggregatigl
in Northern cities, will begin to turn
h Southward. By degrees, the tralde o
n Boston, New York and ai Philadlphia,
Swill decrease, whilst that of Charles
tr tn, Savannah, Mobile, and New Or
leans, will proportionately increase.
- Immigration will also turn thitherward
SThe North has lost, irrevocably lost, we
y fear, her largest and best ctatomer
SOur futurewe may read in the past of
Canada. Negro symnpathly, which ha+
- of late been so active with us, will, i
Le a few months more, be like a tale tha
s, is told. We shai hear no moro of sla
Svery in the South, than we now hear o
a- it in Cuba and Russia. From Nei
England, at least, the sceptre of empie
is has departed forever, and that throuig
the folly of her sons.-Bawgor (¶k.
