? m:e.lite, with its hands ggaifrit nofi^iy ail other parties.
ft has manifested a dieporiiion tn do roiachief, which,
' backed hy a little more strength, might one day make
'* it dangerous. It has signalized its advent by spite
[. fully assailing the National Democracy, a Dein atretic
President, a Democratic Cabinet, sod all good South
r em Democrats who do not happen to regard the boisterous
infant undeserving of eminent consideration.
} Speaking through its disunion organs in South Car- ,
olina it has denounced the Old Dominion us a trui* J
tress to the South and pointed ut her the finger ot ^
scorn as s "fallen" and degmdeil State, the abandon.;
od prostitute of the Federal Government. It has '
laid its rude hand upon many of the most precious , (
1 household gods of the Democracy of Virginia, and
' sought to excommunicate tier as a worshipper ot ^
' strange gods in the Pantheon of Abolitionism. It; ^
I has, regardless ol history, and <>f the teachings of the , ,
great fathers of the State rights school, sought tf *
sever the ties which hind the South to'y.e?ogly iriocda I
j in the free States, 't bsj produced dissension, di?. | 1
f cord and tpigry feelings in the South by assailing a i j
, patriotic-, inmost and loyal Administration with _
; out sufUcient cause. It has taught to uiidermine j
J a newly elected Democratic President, before he ha? j
had time to writo his first message and to meet his (
' first Congress. I
And yet this party protends to sper.ij \q t.,e nam? c
! and by the authority of the ifl-ito rights party. Wo ?
r deny its Iright to speak tor ? r in behalf of the Stalo (
rights party of the South, w> long as it continues to ; ,
denounce the National Democracy, end the Adminis- ti
tration for claiming for t'.io inhabitants of a territory, t
tho right to determine at the polls what shall and what ^
1 shall not be their orgattio law. q
If it is a State rights party, it would be filled with J ?
a deep regard for the b'-st iutorects of the South.-- c
It would carefully avoid alienating from the South | c
that large and, powerful body of friends to her inati-1 a
rations a^d the supporters of her Constitutional i
! rights, who reside in the ?oo States. It would seek to *
, otrengthon rather than weaken tho Southern Stat??. "
It would labor to incroa?e the political influence of the c
i South and not tocoufiue it to a few small States.? t:
Arc these apparently the nims, purposes, aud oh- "
jects of this new orguuizaliunt Ou the coutrnry, we "
all know that the great object of their leading organs
1 has been to sever every tie which unites tho tl
j Democracy of the North imd South. Deny- i
| ing the fidelity of the Democracy of the free j w
; States, and ungrateful for their sacrifice?, they j 8
! chftrtrn nnon the onlv friends of the in th? frpn w
8tates, a betrayal of the South, when the nohle men ' d
thus unjustly denounced, nre bleeding and maimed ,
from wounds received in defenco cf the rights of the 0
South. ' fa
In vain, do we point to the hundreds of Northern ?
Democrats who have within the lost ten years ?uf- P
fered martyr.lom rather than desert the South, when b
honors and rewards wore within every traitor's irrasp. 0
Hetjardless of the Jevotieii of these men to the South,
tbefactiou to which we allude, <:?ntiiiiins its reckle.-e !!
assaults upou the Northern Democracy. 11
The South is iu a minority, and unaided by the w
National Democracy, she would be loft tbo raeiau b
choly alternatives of dishonor or disunion. Aided as b
we of the South have been by the Democracy of
tho North at $11 times, the terrible necessity of'di.v ?
union, if that assistance is continued, is very remote
But ouoe destroy tho nationality of the Democratic tf
party, out off the South from the sympathies and re- b
gard of the conservative tneu of the North, u
and disunion becomes inevitable. The purpose
of the Mnrurt/'* dangerous faation seeuis to
be the separation of the South from all hoi
powerful and influential friends- The tepdble ne- n

laim to any lasting consistency in its exhibitions eitlie
if facta or principles.
Hut there are several points we wish to touch upoi
ti the article befote us. First, it is slated that the South
rn States lights Democrats are working with tin
alack UnpttlilicAna against the Administration, aud
herefore, are to he tondtinned.
If the Enquirer mean* by this that the Southeri
eights Democracy do tiot intend any longer to linvi
(stated upon them, under the convenient terni o
National Democracy," an insidious anti-slavery par
V or policy, working foul ends under fair pretences
f it means that they neither intend to support now

iiiprinripled stock jobbing company ot iuterestoi

way our institutions for party succeed, the Enquire
i right. They intend, with Htu assistance of titni
nd sure coming vVwiiiu, that thu viper ehall hi
iclced out o1, ti.H Mraas aud hung up as an cxampli
nd warning, 'f'reachery and ingratitude will not hi
jsterwl.
llui, secondly, it makes a slight uiistal;j nheuil
alksof the "pretty figure a halt dogeti ir.ipractkahh
iecessionists will cut in Congreoc.'' It has to lean
hat the bulk of the IVujoeraey in the Cotton Statei

10 man or party can t>rvo at the aaiue time tin
sorth and South u ibis Confederacy. To attempt if
* to fall po',,e.:oss between the two. Their views tint
vi :l;e-are irreconcilable. Mr. Bi'cuakam's mistakt

it adherence to constitutional principles, lime
erving is uo longer stutwonaiiship. aud the Cottoi
itntes ore opening taoir eyes to the fact. A half doxei
