Senator Dougina uud Uia Mrcogth.
While flatly repudiating Senator Doug'asatid his Squat
ter Sovereignty Free-soil heresy, we are compel!-. d in
candor and honesty to admit, what we religiously believe,
that he is the only man in the Democratic partv, who
aland* the remotest chance of obtaining the electoral
vote ol a single Northern State. We believe that the
nomination of any other man of the party, whether
Bre keuudge, Hunter, Guthrie, Wise, Lane, Seymour, or
Johnson, would be followed by a disastrous and over
whelming defeat in every one of the non-slaveholding
States. In short, if toe national Democracy hope to
succeed in the coming Presidential election, there object
«an only be accomplished, it possible of accomplishment
at all, by the nomination of Judge Douglas and the coc
ucntraiioa of their entire strength. North and South,
upon him. That nineteen-twentieths ef the Democracy
of tae North are his warm, devoted, and steadfast friends
aud decidedly prefer him as their candidate for the Prt
fluency to any other nan, admits of no doubt whatever
That, If be be the nominee of the Democratic Conven
tion at Baltimore, the Democrats of the North would on
ter upon the canvass with an clastic and cnthusiaetii
spirit, and put forth all their energies aud resources tc
secure hie election, and would suc.eed in carrying at lew
•ome six or eight Northern States, is a proposition, »e
behove, that is equally clear. For no other man eou'd
the Northern Democracy bai'.lc with the slightest degre
of re-d—for, Docglas Is identified with all their conflicts
with all their trials, with all their triumphs, and with al
their disat.rs. Ue has been their brave and dash in-,
leader in every fight for upwards of twenty years,and has
endeared himself to them by a thousand strong and pre
cious ties. He is their representative man, their gallant
leafier and their i-nnstant freiid Indeed no «t itesnisn
within the length ami breadth of the land enjoys the high
and proud distinction ot i>04ses»ing such a mighty ho-t
of ardent and enthusiastic friends—men who would fight
Ait battles with even greater cheerfulness than they
would fight their own. Not to nominate him at Balti
more would disappoint, mortify, and dishearten them all
and for no other candidate could they pit forth a single
vigorous effort; and the consequence would be the loss
of every Northern State to the Democracy, and, not ouly
their ignominious defeat in the Prcsidentialjcontest, but,
their absolute annihilation as a party.
Such is our sincere and deliberate opinion of the
strength of Douglas in the Northern States, and of the
fatal consequences to the Democracy, «« a party, which
would Inevitably follow his rejection and repudiation by
the forthcoming Baltimore Convention. Nor are »e alone
in the malutenancc of these views. Many of the stale
•st and discree test Democratic organs at the North en
tirely concur with us. The New York Journal of 1 o/n
i/nra, for example—which is not a Douglas organ, but a
Democratic organ, ready to support any nominee of
the partr, and which protessis to look only to the suc
cess of the party—boldly av ows its opinion of Douglas'
Strength In the great State of New York, in these em
phatic and significant words : * t'caukn*»t compel* in to

tion of the Journo' theCleave land P,'ai>idealer,a prom

Douglas can carry New York, he can carry enough
Northern votes to eiect him 'V .‘ r i q/i So ‘Atm

Douglas organ, boldly dccl.ua - “that the friends of Doug

Such are the view* and calculations ot the Northern
friends of Douglas ; and, though perhaps partaking of
exaggeration soni< *hj;, yet they serve to deiuonstrate
two great tacts, to wit. the superior strength of Doug'as
lu all the free St.ites, and the sanguine confidence felt by
hi* friends in his election, in tb-» evert of his nomination
at Baltimore. We perfectly agree with those Northern
friend* of Douglas that he is Wo oa y inxn in the Dera
o-'ratic party who stands the ghoo of a chance of ob
taining the electoral vote of a single Northern State.—
And, then, in all Lie Southern State* he ha* likewise
troops of friends - but whether enough to give him
Homy Southern electoral votes, remains for the future
to determine.
Take him all in all. therefore, Doug'as is the strongest
man in the ranks of the Do hoc nicy; and, if nominated
at Baltlmore, will obtain a large number of Northern elec
toral vote*—enough to elect him, his friemis think,
without the aid of the South. I* Douglas, then. 44 the

The Preaa aa< the Polltl. lai.
It ia charged upon Mr. Greeley that he brought about
the defeat of Mr. toward at Chicago, *» a piece d pri
vate vrngaance, ..a per injuries received from the great
man. We know nothing about thta particular cue, but
we Jo know that, a* a class, public men treat the preaa
vilely, aud that, using it as the means of getting up in the
world, they, when once established, seek to destroy it,
treating with a peculiar vindietivenea the beat friend of
their dark days. Of coarse, no one is so absurd as to
expect anything from their gratitude, but one would
think that common sense might render them forbearing
toward whet is a power that in the long run is sore to
pulverize all who come against it. We are glad that
there is occasionally to be found an editor who directly
resents the insolence that is tendered him by way of re
ward for his labors, and that he is not unsuccessful in
li'iuidatiug the debt thtt3 incurred. We conld point out
a dozen men of note, and of talent also, and certainly no
worse in most respects than other men, who are utterly
oroken down because the press, in the independent dis
charge of its duty, has resolutely opposed them and their
pretensions. He, who runs a tilt against a firmly estab
lished and independent organ of pub ic opinion, may
thereby prove himself a very brave and daring man, but
he will be sure to fiud himself a dead one, in a very short
4outht-ru Literary vita* near.
The following element appeal in tx half of Southern
Literature, as connected with the Messenger, comes from
one of the most talented gentlemen in Eastern Virginia
We cordially endorse his sound and patriotic views.—
The Jane number of the Messenger wiil be out in a few
days, aud will contain articles upon the “ Ditleronce of
Rice betweeu Northern and Southern People,” “Givi*
L bertv,’ *’Cruwtoid the Sculptor,” a humorous i/fuj
(rated article, a capita! sketch called ‘ lUuuibal a Nig
ger," “A Lecture, not on the Devil,” lx sides poetry, Ac.,
Ac. The Editor's Table will contain »n account of the
Compliment ry Dinner given to John K. Thompson, Ksij,
ptevi is to hi- departure for Augusta, < ieorgia, aud much
other interesting matter.
But here ia the appeal allude 1 to t
1 am ia hopes that a brighter day is dawning for the
Messenger. Surely it is our duty, as Southern men, to
•upport this periodical, which has stood so long at the
i. ad of Southern Lit raturo. If it became our duty in
limes past, how much more does it devolve upon ns
tow, to give it a libers! suppoit, sinct the North is ar
aved against us both iu literature and politics. The
jride which we feel for our section, our own self-respect
is a people, should prompt us to this step. Wo have
•laved fools to the North long enough—we have built
id their ci ies thro’ our commerce, ami we have sustain
-d their traiky literature,until the Sou'h has surrendered
hem both without an effort at competition, and it is time
*< should turn about aud seek our own independence.—
Aye, sirs, we want aa independent commerce, and par
veala; ly an iudej- niiot literature. We are grateful to
■we lhai Virginia is nuking an effort towards indepen
le ice, commercially speaking, in establishing direct coni
iit.ui.- ition with lovcigu ports, and surely her people will
U-pei e in a literary [ooit ol vi"w. Vo
cut easily accom.l - . this by cutting off trom Northern
1 jew-.papers aud periodicals, and rallying around those of
own section. And will not our ciuz-u* of the South do
ir * W It not oar Virginia people do it? Where is your
State pride, those natural iustinots which tell von that in
iu '.he s ime propoitiou you are l'orgiug manacl.- |0r vour
selves, whether we epeak to polit-cs or literature?—
Shall we he bound auy longer to the ear of Northern en
terprise? Or shall we a.—ort our indepeud -nce, and
maintain it, by giving the Me»*enger ami the rest ol
southern publications, a cordial and liberal support?—
This, citizens of the South, is lor us to determine. Fired
'iv x burning zeal for our own section, we cannot resist
the temptation of making this appeal.
The whinin g Lliliia of Democracy.
We invite attention to the article iu another column,
which wo copy front the Vicksburg Whig, showing the
antecedents of some of the delegat' d, who represented
he Northern Democracy—“the nitural allies of the
South"—in the late Charleston Convention. It but proves
what the Soutltc. u Opposition have ever charged, that
the Northern Democracy are utterly unsound and treach
erous, a-;d that the only hO[H> of th-• South con?i-ts in a
cordial union of Southern men ol all parties with the con
servative elements of the North, which are found in the
ri- ts of the Constitutional Tuion party.
Nor doe* i! s dissection stop at the Northern delegites
done. The Western members of this beautiful national
') parry, i' appears, are in bad odor also, as will be psr
c-ived from the article below, which we copy from that
ird nt Democratic * eet, the Oxford (Term ) .Vrrewg.—
Speaking of one ex-Oov. King, of Missouri, who was a
delegate to Charleston, it says :

must look for -ound principle- and sound candidates'
It It) Titer Dili Not U- tire.
The following article, which we copy from the Hunt*
ville (Ala.) Ihmocrat, suggests the id< l that the delegates
from this, and other Southern Slates, who remained in
the Charleston Convention after the withdrawal of the
disorgiuizers, were not governed by the most patriotic
motives. Rich of the remaining delegations had “an
axe to grin-!,’’ i: appears; and held men in higher es
teem than principle-. What have our Virginia delegates
to say in rep!v to the suggested charge? If the charge
be true, it would -ee-n to us that the fact ouly places them
on the platform of the secede ra, who. after all their pro
fcc-ion * of devotion to principle, retired really because
they wore not sure of their power to defeat Douglas.—
Uca, and not principle-*, therefore, if we take the word
of the oarti - to the contest, were at the bottom of the
trouble! at Charleston:
I'nnA i‘he 11 uHitrilh Drmoemt.
It is a note-worthy fact that each of the leading South
ern Delegates that remained in the Charleston Couven
•ioa after the di legates from Alabama aud other South
ern States retired—to wit: the delegations from Vir
atas, T**np- --“o, and Kentucky—each had a candidate
for the Presidency. Virginia bod 11 enter, Tennessee had
Andy Johri-OD, aud Kentucky hail Guthrie. Mach ot
th m « t on electing its mat:, ut d placed the success
of their mart above painciple*. They urged the nomina
tion of eandi lat * *>eforc the adoption of a platform—
thus making p*ru/an vi->ws, the eloc'ion of a man supe
rior to the tr. lintenanee of sound principles.
On the contrary, no one of the withdrawing delega
tion* had an v in in to prescut for the Presidency. They
preferred me*.* ncs to turn, Democratic principles to
party success, ti:e rights and equall y of the South, to
the empty triumph of a party without principle, the
maintenance of the Constitution, to concession to Free
•01 i*m, the unbiased, deliberate decision of an impartial
- iprime Court, to the opinion of Senator Douglas, un
der the bias of his aspirations for the Presidency, the
i' fluences of his educated prejudices against slavery,
and the pres-are of au overwhelming anti-slavery senti
ment at the North.

j|T!ie Charleston Jfmury thus handles the recent letter
af the Bon. A. H. Stephens:
Mr. K.ephens rests his counsels on the fact that the
South, it: the Katisas-Xebraska act, rurremb red all right
10 protet on by Congress to slave property in our Terri
ories. Suppose the lact to be as hr alleges—he himself
pronounces it unconstitutional. H- recalls to remem
brance, how he strenuously maintained that the South
ern people had a constitutional right to the protection of
Yeir slave property in our Territoties. Well, then, as
Je voted for the Kansas-Nebraska m t, he convicts him
*e!f of Laving bartered away and surrendered the con
ititution il rights of the South in our Territories by the
erms ot that act. He convicts himself of faithlessness
o the constitutional rights of the South, and then he
lives thnt goodf'tilh requires the Southern people to up
icld his faithless’ ess atd treachery, am! abandon their
chts lorrver. What an honest, safe counsellor for the
k'uth’ B :t the fact is uot as be averts it to be, that
he South, in the Kansas-Nebraska act, surrendered all
ler right to protection bv Congress to slave property in
■ur Territories. The debates la this Senate, which we
uhJished a few days ago, show that when this pretension
'»» set up by Mr. Douglas, it was promptly met aud re
u hated by almost every Democratic Senator on the

To the Editor of the Richmond Whig :
fbe accompanying communication from N. C. Cren
shaw, E->q, was written for the June uumber of the
“Southern Planter," but did not reach the hands of the
editor in time for its appearance therein.
To defer its publication for a month is to withhold from
the farmers, the opportunity of testing his experiments
during the coming harvest, in regard to the ascertainment
of the beat state in which to reap and stack the crop- a
subject of commanding interest to the agricultural com
munity. I hope you will therefore publish it in the Whig,
and invite communications respecting the results of ex
periments, which farmers are iuvited, by Mr. Crenshaw,
to institute, to test tho truth of his conclusions.
Yours, trulv,
SHRrBBttnr Hint, Hanover.
Friend Williams In compliance with my promise,
I send thee the following statement:
Sonic vears ago, I hired a man to cut wheat who did
not give me satisfaction. I discharged him. As he left the
fi*ld where the hands were at work, he passed through
a piece of wheat that was just in the dough state, and,
being angry at being discharged, cut a row through the
field. The season was a wet one, and the rust attacked
that field. When we came to reap it, I found the row
he cut and left on the ground, well-filled, plump wheat,
while ail around it was scarcely worth cutting.
Some time back I saw a recommendation in the Plan
ter from-Harnett, to proeeed to cut and shock wheat
in wet weather. As an experiment, I cut and shocked
13 shocks of wheat, that was barely ripe, in a drizzling
rain. Some days afterwards the weather became fiue. 1
opened aud dried 10 of the shocks, fearing to risk so
much. I found them keeping well. The remaining three
shocks cured and kept as well as any shocks I put up
that season.
I mentioned this circumstance to an old and experi
enced farmer, who inforrntd me that the wheat kept be
cause it had not fully matured and dried when cut. That
when wheat b-esme fully matured and dry, it could not
be put up wet without spoiling, as it would certainly heat
and sprout. He further said that he had cut and shocked
green wheat that cured well without being opened.
Last harvest, I cut and put up a shock of wheat in a
very green state, which cured well; the grain was plump
and fiae. Having heard that seed wheat should always
be allowed to thoroughly ripen before being cut, I kept
that shock and sowed it to itself; it came up as well, and
is now looking as well as the rest of mv wheat, on the
same quality of laud. I therefore conclude, 1st. That it
is best to cut wheat that is likely to have the rust as
soon as it i9 in the dough state. 2d. That it is not safe
to cut aud shock wheat fully matured except when dry.
1 do not wi-h any farmer to do more the present sea
son than make experiments to test the truth of the above
conclusions. Respectfully, N. G. CRENSHAW.

We have taken some little pains to condense a sketch
of some of tht dclega cs from the North to the Charles
ton Democratic Convention; not that it makes any dif
ference at all with the Democracy who are in their
councils, if they only profess to be good Democrats
nu.t aid in -eruring the -poiU. If -itch men happen to
be in any wise affiliated with the opposition, in the
most insignificant movement, the whole fire-eating press
proclaim- to the South the deplorable fact, and calls
upon the country to rally to “the only parly to pre
serve the institution of slavery.” The honest masses
will find out, too late, however, for the welfare of the
country, that the loud professions of the Democratic
party arc ail humbug, aud that they are always intent
upon the spoils, be the consequence- what they may to
the country.

earthquakes in south America—remarka
ble phenomena.
The season bus been unusually pro!ifi • of earthquakes
in South America. A letter dated Callao, April 27th,
says ;
On the 19th inst., a very heavy shock was felt at
three-quarters to two in the morning, which lasted eighty
seconds. It was said to have been the heaviest shock
that had been experienced siuce the submerging of old
Callao, and the general opinion is that Lima and Callao
cannot stand a much hea\ier shaking. However, on
Sunday, at half past 1 P. M„ the ground commenced to
shake in good earnest, hut lasted only fifteen seconds,
doing in that short space of time the estimated damtfge,
in Lima, of one million of dollars, in Callao about twenty
thousand, and in Chorillos about forty thousand ; and de
stroying several estate* in Canete, which may be set
down at two hundred thousand dollar*. It) Manta trees
were rooted out of the ground, and one of the mountains
clo-te bv was rent in two, and produced a volcano of hot
betid water.
The earthquake then took a northern course—the
greatest effect was in Canete; the greatest stHte of
alarm exists. All the public squares are occupied by
families, who prefer the open air to their insecure
houses. Up to the present time slight shocks continue
to be felt; I have counted twenty-eight, but there have
been many more.
Da Monday, in Callao, an alarm was raised that the
sea was receding from the shore, and presenting the
same phenomenon as in 1749, during and preceding the
sinking of old Callao. People were to be seen running
about greatly distracted, and a geueral panic prevailed.
All the roads leading out of Callao were lined with af
frighted sinners, fleeing from the wrath to conte. Spe
cial trains were running all day carrying away hundreds
to Lima, whilst the most devoted of fanalies went to Bel
la Vista, and took from the church the image of the
Seuor del Mar, the same that was used in 1749 ; a pro
cession was formed, accompanied by a band of music and
a guard of honor, and the image that was to calm the sea
and bring it back to a proper sense of its duty, was car
ried down to the mole with all the pomp and ceremony
the church could afford. After remaining a short time
it was carried ba«^; to the church of Santa Rom, where
it remains to be used aguiu, in case the sea should again
be refractory. The same evening a proclamation was is
sued by the Perfect, calliug the inhabitants back to their
houses, assuring them that the alarm was false, and that
if in case the sea began to show symptoms of ovet flow
ing the city, the fact would be announced by the firing of
three cannons, so that there would be time to escape.—
As yet tbe greater portion of the lamihes who left Callao
uave not returned.
Socthirs Politic*.—The Louisiana State Central Com
nittee have refused to call a new State Convention to
deet to vacancies in the delegation to the Democratic
National Convention, caused by tbe withdrawal of dele
gate* from the Charleston Convention, on the ground
ihat tbe Baton Rouge Convention alone ha* the power to
ieciare whether vacancies exist, and to fill the saute: and,
furthfr, becauM Ux«t« it not »uffi«*ot time fer tht M-1
aembling of a new Convention prior to the 18th of June.
They therefore call upon the State Convention w!Jcb met
at Baton Rouge ou thn ftth of last March, to reconvene
at the same place ou the 4th of June. The Louisiana
Democratic Association thereupon issue a call lor a new
State Convention, to be held at New Orleans on tbc Stb
of June, for tho purpose of selecting delegat'd to repre
sent the State at Baltimore on the 18th of Juno.
The course of the Texas delegates at the Charleston
Convention appears to meet with the approval of the ma
jority of the papers of the State. We understand that
these delegates, on the authority of the Democratic State
Executive Committee, in view of the impossibility of
holding a State Convention in time, will retqfn to the
Convention at Richmond, prepared to adjourn to Balti
more and join in the Convention there, provided there
be a good prospect of the Southernplat form being there
adopted, or one of similar conception and of jects.

The wheat crop in Rockinglnm county, is not doing
so well at this time. From .-ome came or other its grow

We learn from Col. Townrs, State Senator from tho
Danville district, that the crjps In the above district are

abundant harvest should nothing occur to injure their

The Staunton Spectator says:—A few weeks ago we
reported that the prospect for a good wheat crop in this
county was better than had been known for many years.
Now, however, we have a vary different tale to tell. The

Of Amherst county, the Lynchburg Virginian says :
“We continue to hear the most discouraging accounts of
the growing wheat. A gentleman from Amherst vester
d iv told us he had that day observed a field on one of
the best farms in the county, which, under ordinary cir
cumstances, would have brought from twenty-five to
thirty bushels of wheat, which he feels assured will not
now yield one bushel. Tho joint worm has never be
fore committed such ravages in this section of the State.
Th ■ Farmvilie Journal says: Every report that reaches 1
us confirms the statement made in our last issue in regard
to the unfavorable prospect for a crop of wheat in this
section. And our own observation, though limited, has
prepared us to credit all such reports. During a short
ride iu the country a few oveuings since, we saw a por
tion of three crops, and we must confess we never saw as
indifferent looking wheat before. In some places, we
think it w.ll not yield a peek to the acre, while none of it
can possibly turn out more than half a crop. The th

A writer in tho Alexandria Gazette says of Rappahan
nock county: The wheat crop in this vicinity is ruined in

thought, two weeks ago, would make 15 bushels per acre:
I doubt now if it will make five. I do uot think 1 can
make one-third of a crop, and the farmers who used
guano seem to fare nearly as badly as those who did not.

expenditures, providing hereafter that no person shall he 1
printer, either to the Senate or House, who is not a prac

The printer elected to either branch to give bond and se
curity in the sum of *25,000, and the present prices to
be reduced forty per centum, the resolution to take effect
from its passage.
Mr. Haskin, the chairman of the committee on public ,
expenditures, (who had investigated tho subject of the <
public printing.) spoke of abuses of the present system. (
He said that the coutr&ct system has proved au abortion, ,
hence there was a necessity for a reform. He charged
the President, together with Attorney General Black, of '
having distributed patronage or profits from the printing j
>f the post-office blanks, to bolster up and sustain cor
rupt partisan presses, mentioning in this connection, the
Pennsylvanian, Evening Argus and Constitution. He
ihowcd the enormous increase of the exDcnse for public
printing; and in conclusion be said that, by the adoption I
)f the resolutions reported, the government would save
annually a hundred thousand dollars <
Mr. Barksdale inquired whether Mr, Haskin did not I
vote for printer for Mr. Defrees, who authorized a dc
rlaration to be made in the republican caucus which ,
aomiuated, that, if elected, he would give half the profits
’or electioneering purposes.

plea-uro bore this testimony to Mr. Heart, who ia his po
litical opponent. 1
Mr. Clopton, of the minority of the committee on pub
lic expenditures, proceeded to oppose the establishment
of a government printing olliee, on account of the in
crease of the executive patronage, and because he was
not convinced that there would be a saving by the adop
tion of that plan. He advocated the letting of the
printing by contract to the lowest responsible bidder,
aud defended the President from Mr. Haakin’a charge of !
usurpation and violation of Uw, saving it came with a
bad grace to charge corruption on the President, the At- j
torney Heneral and others when the Republican (tarty who, :

The Baron left five or six children, the two oldest hav
