From the Mercury.
Georgia to Carolina:
Carolina trust mi.
Southern champion ! I adjure thee,
By the glories of the past,
With thy palmy banner o'er thee,
Trust thy sister to the last!
What though fearful men distrust thee !
f What though traitors bind my hand,
lii the corning battle must we,
Face to face as foemen stand !
On the day when thy bright star,
Rose in flame o'er Moultrie's fight;
And thy minute guns afar,
Told thy firmness and thy might;
When thy serpent banner fell,
Shattered midst the iron rain,
In the battle's fiercest swell,
Georgian's hand raised it again.
Carolina trust me.
In that dark disastrous day,
When by foreign folly led,
Patriot lives were thrown away,
Patriot legions vainly bled.
Highest o'er the cruel slaughter,
Standard of that gallant band,
Gift of Carolina's daughter,
If aped i? Georgian hand.
When the battle backward rolled,
Safe, though into fragments torn,
Stained with blood in every fold,
Was that sacred banner borne.
From a Georgian's breast they toound it?
"Tell her,"said he, " how I fell;
Tell, oh t;ll her, where ye found it,
For I 've kept my promise well."
Carolina trust me.
Georgia still hath many a son,
To help thee in thy sorest need,
To smile a peaceful victory won,
Or bleed with thee, if thou must bleed.
Clarke County, October, 1850.
White Slavery?The English System.?My
attention has been called to a speech written by
my countryman, George Thompson, with an intention
of delivering the same in Faneuil Hall.?
According to his own showing, it appears that his
object in coming to this country, was for the purpose
of agitating the question of slavery. I must
say, that 1 am greatly surprised that any Englishman,
but especially a member of Parliament,
should have come to this country for any such like
purpose. It appears that the sympathies of his
nature are of such au extraordinary character, that
they extend as farand as wide as "God's earth
that he knows of "no geographical boundaries."
I am sorry for this. I should strongly recommend
that his sympathising heart should be confined
within some certain limits. Suppose, for instance,
they were bounded on the east by the German
ocean, on the west by the Atlantic ocean, on the
north by the[Polar sea, and on the south by the
English channel. I venture to affirm, without fear
of contradiction, that he would find within the
limits here prescribed, ample exercise for all the
sympathies of his heart, be they ever so extraordinary.
There he might exercise his good disposition
to his heart's content, without being under
any necessity whatever of coming three thousand
miles in search of objects. I can assure him he
need never be at a loss for want of material to
work upon?distressed agricultural laborers, worn
out minei',?? and factory cripples, might easily be
met with at ev ery turn.
Unfortunately for these poor creatures, British
philanthropists are nil far sighted?they can see
objects at a very great distance, but nothing near
home.
There are several things mentioned in this remarkable
document which deserves particular attention.
Speaking of Ireland, he says, " In
meliorating the horrors of a desolating /amine in
Ireland." A famine in Ireland!! Who ever
heard of such a thing within the last twenty
years? Nobody! Let God be true and all men
iiars, there was no famine in Ireland!
\Vhat is a famine? In Johnson's dictionary a
famine is defined to be a scarcity of provisions?
dearth.
In proof of the assertion which 1 have here
made, I have copied the following paragraph from
it London l imes newspaper of the time to which [
lie refers:
"Poor Ireland exports more food than any other
country in the whole world?not merely more in
proportion to its people, or its area, but absolutely
more. Its exports of food are greater than those
of the United States, or of Russia, vast and inexhaustible
as we are apt to think the resources of
those countries are. Such a fact as this is very
compatible with a people being poor; but it at
least shows that one ought to inquire what sort of
poverty i' Stand on the quays of Ireland, and
nee the full freighted vessels leaving her noble
rivers and coves. You will there see, that, so far
from Ireland being utterly, radically and incurably
poor, barren and unprofitable, she is one of the
freat feeders of England; nay, its chief purveyor,
reland does this out of her poverty, besides feeding,
after a manner, an immense population. It
is this that addB so painful an interest to her miserable
state; that she should 'make many rich,'
and yet remain herself so poor, and be the author
of an abundance which she is not permitted to
enjoy/'
This at least shows that the " desolating famine"
of which George Thompson speaks was not the
result of the providence of God, but the mismanagement
of the rulers of the land. It is true that
i20,000 people perished for want of the common
necessaries of life; it is also true that ship loads of
provisions were generally sent from this country
for the relief of the suffering people; but it is not
true that there was a desolating famine in Ireland.
If the people had been allowed to eat the food
which God had given them, there would have
been no necessity for such benevolence on the part
of the American people. What would George
Thompson und his colleagues have said if such an
occurrence had taken place in the Southern portion
of this country ?
\vre need not, however, be surprised at these
sad consequences, when we consider by what sort
of people Great Britain is governed. Take Mr.
Thompson's own words: "1 blush to say, with a
few honorable exceptions, you shall not find in all
society besides, a class of men of more abject,
more soulless, more sycophantic and subservient,
more utterly unprincipled in their politics, more
corrupt, more ready to be the agents in the work
of corruption, more intensely selfish, or more regardless
of the interests of tne nation, than those
who control the elections in the vast majority of
the parliamentary boroughs of "the united kingdom."
Well may he blush to own it, if these are
component parts of that body of which he is a
member. For the credit of my fellow-workmen,'
I must say, that they have no part in sending such
men to govern the country.
In another part he says : "I have through evil
and good report asserted, that taxation without
representation is tyranny." And again?"The
present state of our representation is a libel upon
the intelligence and an insult to the common sense
of the people." And again?"Eighty years ago,
it was judiciously decreed that a slave touching
the soil of England shall be FREE." How shall
we reconcile these statements ? Are we to suppose
that notwithstanding "the insult to the com
mon sense or me people, ana "ine tyranny 01
their rulers," the people, in Mr. Thompson's estimation
are all free.
a What is to be n slave ? Is't not to spend
A life bowed down beneath a grinding ill ?
To labor on to serve another's end,?
To give up leisure, health, and strength, and
kill?
And give up each of these against your will ?
Hark to the angry answer :?'Theirs is not
A life of slavery ; if they labor?still
We pay their toil. Free service is their lot ;
And what their labor yields, by us is fairly got.
Oh, men ! profhne not freedom 1 Are they free
Who toil until the body's strength gives way ?
Who may not set a term for Liberty,
Who have no time for food, or rest, or play,
But struggle through the long, unwelcome day
Without the leisure to be good or glad ?
Such is their service?call it what you may.
Poor ill-fed creatures, overtasked and sad,
Vour slavery hath no name?yet is its curse as
bad.
Within the eighty years specified by Mr. Thompson,
thousands of her majesiy's people have been
bought and sold. I could furnish many instances,
did my limits allow; take the following as a specimen:
' On the 3d of April, 1816, Mr. R. Gordon
made the following statement in the House of I
Commons: j
?' |i appears that overseers of pariahe* in London,
are in the habit of contracting with the manu!
factilrers of the North for the disposal of their
children; and these manufacturers agree to take
| one jdiot for every nineteen eane children. In this
manner wagon loads of these little creatures are
sent down to be at the perfect disposal of their
new masters."
I will take another extract from the evidence of
L. Horner, esq., one of the head inspectors of factories.
He says?
"These children were often sent one, two, or
three hundred miles from the place of their birth,
separated for life from all relations, and deprived
of the aid which even in their destitute situation
they might derive from friends."
He describes this as " repugnnnt to humanity,
and a practice thut had been suffered to exist by
the negligence of the legislature."
In referring to the results of this inhuman practice,
he snys?
" It hns been known that with a bankrupt's
effects a gang (if he might use the term) of these
children had been pul up for salt, and were advertised
publicly as a part qf the property. A most
atrocious instance had come before the king's
bench, in which a number of these children, apprenticed
by a parish in London to one manufacturer,
had been transferred to another, and had
been found by some benevolent persons in a state
cf absolute famine. Another case, more horrible,
had come to his knowledge, while on a committee
of the house; that an agreement had been made
between a London parish and a Lancashire manufacturer,
by which it was stipulated that with
every twenty sound children, one idiot should be
taken."
The London Times of a recent date has a letter
of which the following is an extract:
"On Wednesday last we were coming from
Yorkshire to London by the great Northern and
Eastern Counties railway. During the time we
were stopping at the Shelford station, we observed
a number of young women employed in clearing
the weeds from a field on the south side of the station,
and a man overlooking them who held in his
hand a lar^e stirk. Our nff^nfi/xn uma
lo the man from the resemblance which more than
one person remarked he bore to a slave driver, although
the remark was made, that of course he
would never think of using the stick to compel application
to work. Judge what was our astonisnment
when we actually saw the man beat one of
the girls for neglect of work, and that so severely,
that the poor creature fairly winced under the infliction.
We could scarcely believe the evidence
of our eyes that such means of compelling women
to labor were used in our own country."
Will Mr. Thompson say that these people are
free agents?
I think, sir, I have shown that there is sufficient
material on the other side of the Atlantic on which
Mr. Thompson might exercise his philanthropy
without coming so far from home. There are
many points in the famous document before us,
which will bear commenting upon, und with your
permission I will turn to the subject again.
And am, &c., An Englishman.

The Late Elections?The Breaking up?
1820 and 1850?The New Revolution.?We are
I on the verge of a new revolution. Old parties are
! breaking up, and old party platforms are crashing
and tumbling to pieces in every direction. Upon
the slavery issues, the accumulations of thirty
years, we have had the agitation, the discussion,
the adjustment, as in 1820, but not the revolution.
It has to come, is coming, and has already commenced.
Tl>e causes have been similar; the results
will be the same, only more extended, more
striking, more complete and conclusive.
The late elections mark, significantly enough,
the beginning of the dissolution, notof the Union,
but of the old worn-out Whig and Democratic
parties. The Compromise measures of the last
session are doing their work in the most imposing
and decisive manner. A superficial politici n

preme power in the North. The Free-soil and
anti-slavery elements have, indeed, controlled the
late elections, against the late Compromises, and
to the practical setting nside of all the eminent
statesmen concerned. Mr. Webster has been cast
overboard in Massachusetts?General Cass has
been virtually condemned in Michigan?Mr. Dickinson,
the President, and his cabinet, have been
| routed in New York?Mr. Phelps has been superseded
in Vermont?while in Ohio, Illinois, Iowa,
and Wisconsin, the Free-soilers have carried off
the booty. From the Atlantic to the Mississippi,
with the exceptions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania!
there appears to have been a sweeping and
distglrous re-action of all the combined elements
of Free-soil, abolition, and nullification, destructive
alike to the prospects of the Administration,
Webster, Cass, and all concerned; and, upon a
superficial view, ominous of the disruption of the
Union.
At the same time, we find in the South that the
Compromise measures have been met with the
most deadly opposition. While the patriotic conservative
course of Gen. Foote, in the Senate, hus
been rewarded with the strongest denunciations at
home, and by hanging in effigy, the mass meetings
in favor of secession, Southern rights* associations,
calls of conventions, and extra legislative
sessions, render it forcibly evident that the slavery
adjustment is just as rapidly breaking up the old
political parties in the South as in the North.
The predictions of Mr. Clay that the Compromise
bills would speedily conciliate all parties, and restore
the era of good feeling, were exactly the
reverse of the actual consequences. They are
distracting and breaking up both the great parties
of the country, rekindling the agitation in both
sections?and strengthening the agitators North
and South, by recruits, from both parties. Now
for the application. What is to follow?
In all these movements and results, we see a
wonderful resemblance, and we may draw a close
parallel to the events of the Missouri agitation?
the Compromise of 1820, and its consequences.
Then, as now, Mr. Clay predicted the restoration
of peace and harmony. We secured them, and
shall again secure tliern; but now, as in 1820, we
must first have the inevitable revolution. In the
Missouri Compromise, patriotic men of both
paities and both sections combined. The dispute
was settled; but in tl^e political revulsion which
Followed, all' the leading Compromise men, excepting
Mr. Ciay, North and South, were utterly
sacrificed. Mr. Hale repeatedly, at the lust session,
reminded Mr. Clay, and the Committee of
Thirteen, that they would soon be turned over
among the burnt offerings of the Missouri Co npromise.
The prediction is already fulfilled; but
in every battle, the bravest are among the killed
and wounded, and the leaders of a forlorn bone
are generally left in the entrenchments. The
Compromise of 1820, and the adjustment of 1850,
each had their forlorn hope, and the lenders in
both cases are among the killed and wounded.
But the parallel does not end here. In 1824,
four years after the Missouri Compromise, there
was a scrub race for the Presidency. The Compromise
had worked on a political revolution?old j
parties and old platforms were scattered to the
winds. National conventions were out of the
question. Four candidates were put in the field? '
Jackson, Adams, Crawford, and Clay. The election
was thrown into the House?Mr. Adams
was chosen?and from that point we date the present
Whig and Democratic, parties.
The Compromise of 1850 ps running into the
same channel. Involving the same principles, it
must lead to the same result. The only difference
is, that the beginning of the new political cycle
covers a broader surface, involves larger questions,
greater interests?is more complex, more
intense, more excited, more momentous, better understood,
and will be more conclusive than the
transition of 18211. The late elections in the North,
and the agitations in the South, show that the
old Whig and Democratic platforms are broken to
pieces?that the statesmen of the late adjustment
are among the killed and wounded?that Clay, and
Cass, and Webster, and Fillmore, and Foote, and
King, and Mnngum, and Dickinson, and Cobb,
have no chance nt all upon the Compromises,
' North or South ; and that a new state of things,
I and a new set of politicians nre about to succeed.
I What is it ? Who are they ? We shall see in good
season.
A scrub race for 1852, we bold to be absolutely
certain and indispensable. Feeble and decrenid,
broken up and disjointed as they are,the old \V lug
| and Democratic societies may attempt to maintain
j a footing against the swelling tide of revolution.
| But what are their chances? The Northern Freesoil
interest will have a candidate ; the Southern
j rights men will have a candidate ; and if the old
j ??nigs ami uemocrats eacn nave a candidate, we
1 shall have the same number as in 1824, and the
I election will go to the House. With such n divii
sion of parties, Gen. Scott n.ight possibly secure
I New Jersey, and Gen. C'ass might get the vote of
I Pennsylvania ; but neither could possibly be elected
by the people. Sectional candidates will out!
run thenv, North and South. Nashville and Buf|
falo will f.rnish platforms to overwhelm Baltimore
and Philadelphia.
What, then, of the final result? We count upoh
a scrub race between four, five, or half a dozen
candidates, and that the election will be thrown
into the House. What then? The issue depends i
upon the Nashville Convention. Let that move
- ?
merit be followed up?let it be carried into the
Southern States?let a Southern rights party, upon
u Southern platform, either put forward a candidate,
or stand off in the canvass, and from the
three highest candidates carried up to the House,
the South may select their man upon their own
terms, and their own principles of public policy.
They will have the balance of power between the
rival candidates, and the game in their hands.
This looks to be as clear us the sun.
Here we end the parallel between 1820 and
! 18.10. We trace them from similar causes to the
same results?a breaking up of existing parlies?
! a scrub race?an election by the House, and a new
j organization of parties, upon a new policy; in fact,
a new political cycle. Wlio is to lie the President,
nobody knows. It can't be Fillmore, nor Webster,
nor Clay, nor Cass, nor Houston, nor even
Scott, from the strong appearances of the late
elections. The late Castle Garden Union movement
is blown to the winds. All the movements
< for a real national candidate are scattered to pieces.
A scrub race is inevitable. The South will hdld
the balance of power in the House. In one word,
the next President of the United States is in the hunds
of the .Mwhville Convention.

H on. J. Davis, and Hon. W. McWili.ie.?
On Friday last, the 18th inst., Hons. J. Davis and
McWillie addressed the people of Holmes county,
at this place. The crowd was immense ; say
six or eight hundred. Col. Davis opened the
speaking in one of his most masterly efforts. He
was received with great applause. After thanking
the people for the kind manner in which they had
received him, he told them that their rights had
been trampled upon, that the Constitution had been
violated, that it was useless for the people of the
South to look to the balls of Congress for protection,
that they had to rely on their own stout
hearts and strong arms, for that protection which
the Constitution had promised them.

famous measures, were powerful and conclusive.
In fact, they might be termed, in a homely phrase,
real knock down arguments. He dwelt upon the
dismemberment of Texas, with peculiar force and
power, and showed conclusivelyi most conclusively,
that the only reason why the General Government
should want to purchase Texas soil, was
to turn it into Free-soil.
His remarks to the ladies (God bless them)
who graced the occasion with their bright eyes
and sweet smiles, were truly elegant and appropriate.
He told them that some of the men might
be dnstards enough to desert their rights, yet the
ladies were always patriotic?he called to rnind,
in the most vivid language, the sufferings, the
toils, the privations of the matrons of the revolution
; he instanced their giving up every thing for
the cause of right and justice, and asked them if
I they would be less patriotic, in case of necessity,
than their patriotic mothers of '76. He said that
it was slander to think otherwise. After the speaking
concluded, the compuny repaired to a sumptuous
barbecue, prepared for the occasion.
At night, a most elegant supper was prepared
by that most worthy host, 11. Hester, and the gay
" tipped the light fantastic toe" to their heart s
content." So ended the great Davis barbecue.
The Lexington brass band, headed by their accomplished
leader, Mr. Kendall, flavored the occasion
with their splendid and martial music. The
committee of arrangements tender to them their
most sincere thanks.

(inhat Meeting 'of Cabvf.n and HAckken.
?A gtpieral meeting of the Cab and Hack
owners and drivers of Ibis city, was held, pursuant
to public notice, Tuesday evening, at
Arthur O'ljouneH's Ball-room, corner of Circus
I and PftjSras, streets.' There were between three
and four hundred persons present. The meeting
was called to order about half-past seven o'clock,
by Richard Condon, esq., being nominated as
! President, K R. Mack, as Vice President, and
William Boylan as Secretary.
There being loud calls for Col. G. W. Christy,
I why,it w?s general! v understood, had been spe'
cially invited to address the meeting, that gentleman
came forward and spoke as follows :
Mr. President ami Gentlemen: I have undertaken
the task of addressing you on the important
subject which has called you together, on a
very short notice. It is proposed, by many influential
members of your profession, to form
an association of the Cabuien and Ilackmcn of
this city, and it is proposed by ho doing, to promote
the interests of a hard-working and deserving
class of the laboring and industrial classes
of this community. If society itself were not
bound together by similar ties, although upon a
larger scale, we might seek for happiness in vain
in this world. Jf I am rightly informed, there
are about 400 or 500 of vour profession in the
I lie III
"Thoughts that breathe, and words that burn."
the late outrageous acts of Congress which
trampled the rights of the South in the dust. He
took up each of the bills of Congress, called the
Compromise measures, and showed to every impartial
mind the great injustice done the South by
their passage. No man certainly could have listened
to the facts and arguments of that great and
good man without coming to the conclusion, that
the rights of the South had been ruthlessly assailed
and trampled upon, that the Constitution
had been violated, that the late measures of Congress
termed the Compromise, were aggressions
and nothing else, upon the rights of the South.?
To say that the speech was able, eloquent, argumentative
and conclusive, is saying nothing more
than it justly deserves. He handled without
gloves, those traitors to the rights of the South;
who laid aside their allegiance to their constituents
for the sake of national reputation. He told the
people that some of the very men who had been
only a short time ago denounced, condemned, derided,
and abused, were now held up to the
country as the purest patriots of the land.
What has caused so great a change in the minds
of many ? Ah, we think we can answer this question?it
is for the sake of party?it is for the sake
of a " national reputation," on the part of some.
This is the way so great a change has "come
over the spirit of their dreams." They love party
better than the rights of the South, Some love
" national reputation" better than all things besides.
After Col. Davis had concluded his truly
eloquent and elegant address :
Col. McWillie wus introduced to the audience.

city of New Orleans, w Iio arc ever liable to vast
injuries from quite an inferior J'oio, not perhaps
in all exceeding fifty fellows, whom you very
properly designate by the term "Hats." They
are for the most part Northerners, who, because
they happen to possess the price of a horse and
cab, consider they have a right to come into
this city, where they have no interest at stake,
and make money legitimately or illegitimately.
One can easily toll those fellows, lor they will
not let gentlemen pass or repass without annoying
them with their impertinent importunities,
while your respectable cabman politely seeks a
recognition of the services whCoti ho fools he can
honestly and fairly render you. But here, where
true politeness is so rnueli appreciated, they, it
seems, sometimes find it hard to exist upon
their own hook : and so, in order to enable them
to go back to the North, when New Orleans begins
to get a little too hot for theui, from the
fact of the public becoming too well acquainted
with their persons, what do they do ? Why, they
connect themselves with one, two, three, or more
boys, as the ease may be, whose duty it is to
obstruct every one they meet, especially a stranger,
and if they can ascertain that his business
leads liim to any part of the city, agree with him
to bring him there for fifty or probably twentyfive
cents. Pleased with the proposal, the dupe
jumps into the cab, and at the end of his journey
tenders the amount of the fare agreed upon.
He is then told with a sneer, that " he can't come
that," and $2 50 demanded. It is in vain he
says lie has agreed for twenty-five or fifty cents.

Gentlemen, (continued Col. Christy,-) i have
had experience myself that way. Fearful of ever
again being duped, the victim will rather submit
to n hundred inconveniences than trust himself
again to the tender mercies of a cab-driver.
Thus it is that the honest and legitimate traffic
of the profession is diminished?I will venture
to say, to below one-fourth of what it, ought to
be in such a city us this. Imposed upon, the
passenger, when politely asked to enter one of
vour vehicles, an.crrilv renlies. ' I)?n it. I won't
ride at all''?so much is your reputation injured
by the malpractices of these rats. (Laughter,
and cries of" you're right.") I advise you, then,
to single out yourselves from these contemptible
few, and prove yourselves the legitimate
Oab-inen of Now Orleans, (dries of " we'll do
that.")
There is another set of" rats," (continued the
Colonel) who are known as "Levee Rats."
Their existence is even more injurious to your
interests. Steamers are daily arriving, crowds
of strangers land upon the Levee?particularly
a number of Californians, full of money. The I
moment the boat arrives, a crowd of " Levee
rats," in connection with the other rats, tell the
passengers that" they will be robbed?ruined
and they recommend a dray, or a wheelbarrow,
rather than run this chance. And is not all j
sucli worlt calculatert to injure your reputation,
ami defraud you of your legitimate earnings ?
If you permit n continuance of audi malpractices,
'tis your own fault. Do away with tliem,
and you will increase, not only your reputation,
but your .'50 or 50 per cent, at least. A man
would ride fifty times for once he does now, if
the cabs of your city were all under the 44 New |
Orleans Cab Society." A friend of mine, an J
American, who has lately returned from Paris,
tells me that the " one price" system works well
there. For instance, twenty-five cents a ride of |
a certain distance, or withhi a certain time, if j
you will. This rate may not be large enough,
but whatever the rate inav be, let it. be laid down i
by the Municipal authorities. If any one attempted
to impose an extra charge, let him be j
reported at the police office, and let him be fined '
'?r lose his license, if you U ill. If the tariff imposed
by your Municipal Councils were too)1
small, your association requiring i's increase, j j
would not be turned a deaf eat to ; the Council |
would not refuse to establish a remunerating '
tarilV. By this, nnd other means, to he yet devised
by your association, you would soon get
rid of your wharf, Levee and bull rats. Form *
yourselves into a society, take a list of numbers
of cabs belonging to the members of your association
; if any wrong be done, you can remedy
it.
Every craft has its misfortunes, (continued
the speaker.) but let me in conclusion, urge 1
upon you the necessity of forming a society for
your own mutual benefit at the present hour; say
twenty-five cents a member; and, more particularly,
to provide yourselves and families against
the probable effects of a dark day. The speaker,
at the conclusion of his address, was welcomed
by the hearty plaudits of the meeting.

B4.d Book* and Bad newspartas.?A publishing
house in New York, Dc Witt & Davenport,
hate sent ns :tcircuUr, owuafngtfiemaelves
from the guilt whiwt might attach to them from
the publication of u notbl called * The Monk
Knight," a grossly immoral and vicious work.
Th 'y say that they trusted to tlie high reputation
of tho author; that they have been deceived
witli regard to its immoral tone; and that they
have stopped printing the work. The house
may he innocent of wilfully spreading the infection
that will assuredly do its baleful work, hut
they cannot be loosed from all responsibility.
It was their duty to see that the work was free
from such objections, before a sheet of it went
to press; mid how is tho public to know but
this very card, which we perceive has been extensively
circulated, is not put out for the purpose
of attracting attention to the work.
The literature of the present day needs careful
watching. Parents should bo assured that the
works of fiction which find their way into tho
hands of their children, are free from the insidious
poison of licentiousness, infidelity, socialism,
&e. The land is flooded with such
'AM It b n .><1 r? 4 I1..1M SntMnHB/i taailAa m..?* k..
\>uiu?, iiiu. in muir iiuiiivuoo isiuus uiuy uu
traced tnuoh of the crime?the murders, the seductions,
the villainy and swindling that pollute
the larger cities of the North. They are finding
their way to our latitude, and the poison will
just be as fatal here as elsewhere. The prestige
of a high literary reputation avails nothing, these
publishers throw the blame of this filthy work
on the author; and literary writers having the
taste, the appetite being created, are obliged to
pander to it. * .
But this poison comes to us in a more insidious
form?that of newspapers. Some of the
Sunday papers of New York are ns vile sheets
as can be issued, making heroes and heroines of j
the most dissolute and abandoned characters, I
Scoffing at religion, nnd inuulunting Hocitiliam and j
every other ism that can degrade man or pollute ,
society. But it is not confined to these. Their'
literary weeklies?broad sheets, beautifully j
printed, filled week after week with columns of;
doggrel, whole pages of trash they call litera-1
tare; every murder, rape, robbery, and arson
they can cull from the papers of the country, |
piled up under the head of " news items," and j
any quantity of abolition sentiments woven in !
carefully in their editorials, are served up to'
Southern readers under the title of ' Family!
Newspapers," at the low price of one or two i
dollars per annum. Is it not so? And yet
hundreds of well conducted papers at the South
are permitted to drag out an existence marked
in every stage by unmistakeable symptoms of
?v*mv vi mnuioiui.vnw
Nor do we say this from any sectional prejudice
or predilection. From Baltimore to Texas
we know of no paper issued that is amenable to
such strictures as the above. The. entire flood
of this filth and pollution comes from the North.
These journals make their boast of their extensive
circulation, and we have no doubt but millions
of dollars go annually to New York, Boston
and Philadelphia for their sustenance and
support. As we love our children, the purity of
our daughters, and the integrity of our sons, as
we value the well being of soeiety, as we desire
the cultivation of a sound mornl literature at
home, these abominable works and newspapers
should be repudiated and dropped. The moral
obligations imposed upon lis by every social relation
in life, and our duty to the South at the
present juncture, demand such u step.
Saluda Factory, S. C.?YVe hnd the gratilieation
recently of visiting this factory situated
on the Saluda river, near Columbus, and of inspecting
its operations. It 19 on the slave-labor,
or anti-lreesoil system; no operators in the establishment
but blacks. The superintendent
and overseers arc white, and of great experience
in manufacturing. They are principally from
the manufacturing districts of the North and
although strongly prejudiced 011 their first arrival
at the establishment against African labor,
from observations and more experience they all
testily to their equal efficiency an 1 great superiority
in many respects. So us not to act precipitately,
the experiment of African labor was
first tested in the spinning depnrtinent; since
which, the older spinners have been transferred to
the weaving room. They commenced in that department
011 the 1st of July, and are now turning
out as many yards to the loom as was performed
under the older system. A weaver from
Lowell has charge of this department, and she
reports that, while there is full as much work
done by the blacks, they are much more attentive
to the condition of their looms. They all
appear pleased with the manipulations on which
they are employed and are thus affording to the j
South the best evidence that, when the channels
of agriculture are choked, the manufacturing of
our own productions wiil open now channels ot
profitable employment for our slaves. The resources
of the South are great, and it should be
gratifying to all who view these facts with the
eye of a statesman and philanthropist, that the
sources of profitable employment and support
to our rapidly increasing African laborare illimitable.
and must remove all motives for emigra
tion to other countries. By an enlightened system
of internal improvements, making all parts
>f our State accessible, and by a judicious disribntion
of our labor, South Carolinia mny more
.ban double her productive slave labor, and not
mft'er from too dense a population.? Debotrx
Review.
From Harper's .Vcir Monthly Magazine.
Burkf. and the Painter Barry.?Burke
delighted in lending a helping hand to genius
struggling against adversity ; and many who
were wasting their powers in obscurity, wore
led by bis assistance to the paths of eminence.
Barry, the painter, was among those to whom
lie had shown great kindness; he found pleasure
in the society of that eccentric being. A long
time had passed without his having seen him,
when one day they met accidentally in the street.
The greeting was cordial, and Barry invited his
friend to dine with him (he next day. Burke
arrived at the appointed hour, and the door was
opened by Dame Ursula, as she was called. She
at first denied her master, hut when Burke mentioned
his name, Barry, who had overheard it,
came running down stairs, lie was in his usual
attire; ins thin grey hair was all dishevelled;
an old and soiled green shade, and a pair of
mounted spectacles assisted his sight; the color
of his linen was rather equivocal, but was evidently
not fresh from the bleach-green; his outward
garment was a kind of careless roquelaire.
Ife gave Burke a most hearty welcome, aud led
mm into irre apartment wnicu serveu mm tor
kitchen, parlor, studio, and gallery; it was, how-1
ever, so tilled with smoke that its contents remained
n profound mystery, and Burke was almost
blinded and nearly suffocated. Barry expressed
the utmost surprise, and appeared utterly
at a loss to account for the state of the atmosphere.
Burke, however, without endeavoring
to explain the mystery on philosophical
principles, at once brought the whole blame of
the annoyance home to Barry?as it cauie out
that he had removed the stove'from its wonted
situation by the chimney-piece, and drawn it into i
the very middle of the room, lie had mounted
it on an old dripping-pan, to dt fend the carpet
from the burning ashes; he had in vain called |
in the assistance of the bellows, no blaze would j
com??hut volumes of smoke were puffed out<
pver and anon, as if to show that the fire could i
io something if it pleased. Burke persuaded |
Harry to reinstate the stove in its own locality,
md helped him to replace it; this done and the
windows opened, they got rid of the smoke, and |
:he fire soon looked out cheerfully enough on |
hem, as if nolhing had happened. Barry in- i
,-iied Burke to the upper rooms to look at his 1
uctures. As he went on from one to the other, <
le applied the sponge and water with which he 1
vns supplied, to wash away the dust which ob- '
icured them. Btirko was delighted with them, t
md with Barry's history of each, and his disser- <
ation as he pointed out its particular beauties, i
le then brought him to look at his bed-room ; i
ts walls were hung with unfrnmed pictures, |
vhieh had also to be freed from the thick cov- *
ring of dust before they could be admired : I
these, like the others, were noble specimens of
art In a recess, near the tirt-place, the rough
stiuiipkbcilateacl stood, with its coverlet of coarse
rug.
' That is my bed,** said the artist: "you seo I
use no curtains : they are most unwholesome,
' and I breathe as freely and steep as soundly as
I if I lay upon down and snored under velvet.?
Look there," said he, ns he pointed to a broad
shelf high above the bed, "that I consider my
j chcf-iTceuvre ; I think I have been more than a
; match for theui; I have outdone them at last."
Mr. Burke asked of whom it was he spoke,
i "The rats,"' replied he, "the nefarious rata, who .
i robbed me of every thing in the larder. But now
' all is safe; I keep my food beyond their reach, i
: I may now defy all the rats in parish."
j Barry had no clock, so depended on the erav-1:
ings of his stomach to regulate his meals. By 11
! this unerring guide, which might have shamed
the most correct regulator in a watchmaker's j
shop, lie perceived thut it was time for dinner;!
but forgot that he had invited Burke to partake
of it, till reminded by a hint. i
"1 decline my dear friend, I had totally for- i
! gotten, I beg your pardon?it quite escaped my
I memory; but if you'll just sit down here and
blow the fire, I'll get a nice beef-steak in a rnin- i
uto."
Burke applied all his energies to the bellows, j
! and had a nice clear fire when Barry returned
j with the steak rolled up in cabbage leaves, which
| he drew from his pocket: from the same roeept!
acle ho produced a parcel of potatoes ; a bottle ;
i of port was under each arm, and each hand held i
i a fresh Frenchroll. A gridiron was placed on i
the lire, and Burke was deputed to act as cook <
I while Barry performed the part of butler. While <
he laid the cloth the old woman boiled the potatoes,
and at five o'clock, all being duly prepared, i
the friends sat down to their repast. Burke's
tirst essay in cookery was miraculously success- '
mi, ior mo HieaK wan done to aamirauon, ana or ;
course greatly relished by the cook. As soon
as dinner was despatched, the friends chatted <
away over their two bottles of ports till nine
o'clock, Burke was often heard to gay, that this
was one of tho most auuising and delightful days
he had ever spent.
Punch on the Papal Bulls.
The late movements of the Pope with respect 1
to Great Britain have created quite a theological ]
storm throughout England. Of course Punch '
puts in his oar: 1
Under the head of "Foreigners making free
with England," he publishes the following:? (
Pio Nono having divided this country into (
Catholic bishoprics, it becomes absolutely neces- (
| sary that, if Britannia is really to continue to
rulo the waves, she must rule the sees also.?
We shall have to say No-no very peremptorily (
to Pio, with reference to the arrangement he has <
! made for planting the crosier, or crook?which i
he will be allowed to do with a hook?in the
soil of England. If the sort of thing contemplated
by the Pope of Rome is to be tolerated
here, we must expect other alien potentates to '
amuse themselves by cutting up the United j
Kingdom into little bits, after thc-ir own hearts,
and sending the dignitaries of ail sorts of creeds (
to supersede the ministers of our own religion, j
Unless a quietus is rapidly put to the arrogant ,
pretensions of Rome, and unless we rap the
pope's knuckles, as the only alternative left to
prevent our being obliged to kiss his toe, we
nny expect a few such paragraphs as tho following
to figure very speedily in our foreign intelligence:
The Hindoo government has sent over Hoki 1
Polri tn i-ftinmi'iipc his functions as Brahmin of 1
Battersea. Messrs. Laurie, of Oxford street, 1
have received <iirections to build without delay .
a car, with Collinge's patent axles, for the accommodation
of Juggernaut.
The Mirzam of Moolrah has sent over Bow ,
Wow to commence his sittings at Marylebone
as Mufti of Middlesex, and Rusti Khan goes to
Westminster Hull, to take his place in the Court 1
of Chancery as Cadi of Chelsea. We had forgotten
to state that the Bow-string is to be introduced
at Bow street, and Kooly Fooley will
preside at the burning of a widow, on a pile of
weeds collected from all the widows in the metropolis.
'1 he emperor of China has written to the officer
in charge of the Junk at the Temple Stairs,
desiring him to take possession of the temple,
and devote it too Budd; but we are happy to
say that the scheme has been frustrated by the
firmness of the Jack-in-the-water, who declared
emphatically that Budd should go and be blowed
before he?the Jack?would allow any trespasses
on the ground committed to his charge. There
have been further directions forwnrded to the
I Junk, desiring that Poo Loo should cement the
power of China in this country by assuming the
title and powers of Mandarin of Mile End, with
the privilege of issuing chops to any extent, and
Slater, the eminent butcher, is to be called upon
to provide, gratis, the whole of the materials.
Such are a few of the arrangements that may
be looked for, as the suite of the recent measures
taken by the Pope of Rome for establishing his | '
authority in England?provided always that the | '
measures in question are found to be effectual I |
for the purposes desired.
Mr. Cai.houn.?The Mobile Tribune, in no-1
ticing a new work on Mr. Calhoun, gives the
following reminiscence:
' We saw Mr. Calhoun at the Memphis Con
vention. When he reiarnca norac ironi 11 nc i
wrfs received every where on the Mississippi
river" with the warmest demonstration of atlectionate
admiration. At Natchez the boat (the
Maria) stopped near midnight, and the illustri-1
ous passenger was conducted to one of the
halls of the city, where there was a ball. Beau- j
tif u 1 women and brave men were in the midst of |
the dance, v. hen the approach of Mr. Calhoun i
was announced. Instantly the dance stopped.
He was led into the room and surrounded by a M
great multitude. Mr. Davis, now senator, received
him in an eulogistic speech?too eulogis-1
tic for good taste. When he closed. Mr. Cal I
lioun rose to reply with a timidity that was j
painful?a sensasion produced doubtless by the
extravagant flattery of Mr. Davis. lie was al
most incapable of speaking. He observed in |
abrupt language, that he was not accustomed to j 1
address "miscellaneous," audiences?and seeing!
that the word was ill chosen, substituted "heter-j
ogeneous," which was not much better.?Finally i
blushing like a girl, ho declared that lie was un- [
nccustomcd to speak unless to a fixed topic, and i
so sank down to his seat in confusion. There | 5
was hardly a man present that could not have
acquitted himself better. The audience how- j (
ever, saw the cause of his embarrassment, and
tbe liall rang with cheers, as though the spectators
were seeking to encourage the confidence
of a school boy delivering his maiden 1
speech.
VVc were once struck at hearing Mr. Calhoun. I
in an animated conversation, declare that the
conclusions of impulse are more reliable than
those of more intellect?a declaration, however
qualified bv the assertion that the impulse must
be under the guidance of intellect. In this, it
struck us at the time, he announced one of the
principal causes of his own greatness?the I
source of his almost Dronhetie investigation of I
the result of public events and measures."
Riot and I/jss of Life.?A friend who arrived a
yesterday morning from Blairsville gave us a few
particulars of a dreadful riot, which occured
near that place on Friday last, between two
bodies of the laborers 011 the Pennsylvania rail- j ^
road. It seems that these persons, known .as the
Lockport men, (from tho little town of that
name,) and the Packsaddle boys, (the latter, we
believe, deriving their names from one of the
mntrnctors,) resolved to decide their differences 01
by a regular pitched battle. They advanced to- 1,1
ivnrdseachother,armed with guns, pistols, clubs, w
ind other weapons. At tho first fire four fell
lend and numbers were wounded?some of them ?
nortally. The l.ockportors then made a charge
ipon their opponents and succeeded in coin- 1
jletoly routing t'.om. We learn from other ! Jiourc.es
tlwt Urn militia have been ordered out,i pr
jut that none of the rioters had been arrested.!

Major John P. Keller.
Resolved, That we hereby ratify and approve
of the aetion of the Union Southern Rights Association
of (Jh itham county, and pledge ourBclves
to sustain its nominees for the Convention.
Resolved, That the platform laid down by the
Southern Rights Association is suliiciently mild
for evey man who is opposed to tame and unconditional
submission and anti-slavery aggression,
to stand upon.
Resolved, That our attachment to the Constitution
and love for the Union is still cherished,
and [that we] pray that its blessings may be
handed down to the latest r.ges of posterity, but
as our faith iu Northern professions is weakened,
wo doom it the true policy of Southern men to
prepare their ininds in time for the worst.
Resoled, That we pledge ourselves as citizens
of the old District of Cherokee llill, to
sustain no man for any office whatever, tvhilst
our rights, as Southerners,, are in jeopardy, who
does not stand in the front rank of the defenders
of thoso rights.
The above resolutions were unanimously carried.
On motion of George Keller, the proceedings
were requested to bo published in the Georgian

After giving three times three for our candidates
and the cause, the meeting adjourned.

Interesting Marriage.?Yesterday morning
a very interesting ceremony was performed

af the patties interested uttered a syllable, it
took place at the Deaf and Dumb Asylum ; the
bride, groom, brides-maid and grooms-man being
ill deaf mutes, and the ceremony being conducted
intirely with the fingers. Previous to the marriage,
Mr. Peet, the President, made a silent address
