generally believed that her first step would
be an alliance with Great Britan, which
while it would nominally pn serve to her the
ssmhlance of liberty, would virtually place
hlr in a position of hopelors and grovelling
dependency. The experience ol history
piovet conclusively, from the relative posiiion
of the parties, that this must be the certain
result. That such is the design of Suth
Carolina, in esse of successful secession, it
shown by abundant testimony. The speech
es of her orators, and Ihe general tone of her
press, display such a purpose. Not many
dsjs since wo saw, in one of her papers, this
idea advanced. The writer, in advocating
prompt sreestion, and coije::uritig its im
mediate results, argued that tho Federal Go
vernment w.uld probably withdraw its officers
from the Custom House and its troops from
Fort Moultrie, and would rely upon a fleet
stationed in Charleston harbor for the collec
tioo of duties upon foreign imports. Then
sseuming that in bcr new position of an inde
pendent power, South Carolina wcu'd have
Ihe right to form any commercial treaties
with foreign powers which she thought ft',
he supposes Ihsl a Ilriii.h vessel arrive! and
that she it either diuen btck or together
with her cargo confiscated. I hit, the wrt

M'e can hardly find fit language with
which lorxprtssnur abhorrence of such trea
sonable hopes and designs. It it bad enough
surely, fur any State to pint the peaceable
dismemberment of this great Union, but lo
calculate with pleaureupon its involving our
country in a war wiih a foreign power and
that too, our ablest and most inveterate ene
my argues a degree of baseness at which
even Aaron Burr would have recoiled. We
ara not willing, however, to believe that this
sentiment is common even in South Curolina.
There ara many misguided men there, it it
true, who, under the baleful influences of pas.

Pecuniary obligations to the conductors cf
newspapers seem lo til more loosely cn men's
consciences than almost any oihtr kind of
debt. They will take a paper for year after
ear, and derive all the benefit and amusement
which the labors and outlay ef ill ceoduclors
can furnish, yet ihey often teem to think lhat
it is perfectly consistent with honor and de
ed cy never 10 pay a farthing for the consid
eration they have received. Few persons
have any idea of the enormous expenses of
laige newspuper establishments. When we
ttiko into consideration those expenses, the
small sums which compose tht aggregate of
newspaper accounts, and the numerous doliu
quenciet of subscriber the wonder it, not
lhat so many newspapers die, but that any
live.
'i he particular case, cf Mr. Ritchie, ii, it
is 1 1 up, aggravated by the desertion of,hii par

ferences, we cannot but regret that a life ef
