C THURSDAY, MARCH 20 1851. DEATH OF GEORGE McDUFFIE. Oun columns are put in mourning this week, on account of the intelligence, which has reached us from various sources, of the death of GEoRGE McDCFFIE. His better part, it is true, had been lost to us for several years; but the consummation of his mortal -career occurred on the II th of the present month. The noble victor in many a hard-fought field of forensic and parliamentary warfare, the man of stern integrity and iron will, the unsurpassed orator and the spotless pariot. is gone at lengrth to his long resting-phnce. The spirit, which had come from its Maker's hands, endowed with the rarest of human powers, and which, by the deerve of a mvsm e- I rious Providence, had been suddenly and completely stript of its Heaven-born plumage. has been liberated from its sad thraldom, and has flown back to Him from whom it came. While we can but drop a tear at the loss of even the emaciated body, in which once glow ed the genius and patriotism of one of the most brilliant and loyal sons of Carolina, we vet thank our God that it has pleased him to release, what lie would not, in his Wisdom resuscitate. How heart-rending, to all who knew him before, was the condition of the afflicted MicDuFFiE, during the dreamy existence of his last years! lie suffered-alas! in our short-sightedness, we kn ojTt-riitf may < have been thmi*fnt of his sufferings. For may understand the anguish of a de cayed intellect and a blighted fancy! Who can calculate the untold moments of intense agony a. down-stricken genius may endure. which sees, by the occasional fitful glimmer ing of its own embers, the contrast between its present imbecilihy and its former great ness? The fallen eagle, glancing back to the clouds where it once soared, conveys the h idea but feebly. And how know we but that our once exalted statesman may have ha:d some such glimpses of his wreek, during the mournful ordeal he was required to pass.- d While it is saddening to indulge the melan choly supposition, is it rot more so, to be lieve that his great mind had become utterly blank and dark, like the sky of a gloom% winter night, with never a ray of light to break the dismal continuity f' Does not iu. inanity shudder less to think that there were sudden flashes of truth upon his great soul. even though torturing for the moment, thai to believe that all was dark,-continuously i ark? But however this may be, the dread I .pell is now broken, and we can all find comn fort for the past, in the reflection tha:t his soul ,liich stru led in vain with its "mortal i of God and his infinite perfections. Mr. McDUFFIE was, for a long time, ii member of our community. It was here he ommeneed his public life. He studied lawI here, and wvent to the practice at our bar. Some of his most powerful anid eloquent speeches have been made to the people of Edgefield. From our early boyhood, we have been impressed with his goodness, as well as his greatness. Our citizens ha-;e ever known but one feeliing towvards him-a blended feeling of confidence and adcmira tion. The offerings of praise which have so often risen from their hearts, to reward his faithful exertions in their behalf, have been most unaffectedly sincere. And they mourn his loss with unspeakamble sorrow. We trust that arrangements will be at -once made, to hamve his Eulogy delivered here, amid the scenes of his first and of hi noblest efforts. And we would suggem Judge BUcTLERt, his 01(1 friend and co-memnpo rary ams the most suitamble person to diachiarge that duty. HOUSTON OF TEXAS. -Ourn Senators in Congress have recently had occasion to exhibit Senator Houston of-i Texas, before the American people, in a morei ridiculous light than any lie has yet appeared in. The hero of San Jacinto had thought proper to publish in thme form of a letter, a tissue of. imost glaring falsehioods in reference to the nature and character of our State go vernment. Mr. RE'rr, by leave of the Se nate, made a public exposition of t he untruth of his statements, aind fully convicted lhin, before the country, of some hailf dozen pal- 1 pable misrepresentations. to use the mildest< possible term. It is amusing to observe,. how the unfortunate aspirant struggled to rally his powers, to meet the emergency of I his situation. But ho was caught, and, de spite his floundering, was dragged upon the I beach. The remairks of Judge BUTLER were withering, but dignified. The State was no bly vindicated, and her assailant was held up to thme scorn of all honest men. This is the man, fellow-citizens, who glo ries in the announneement of your weakness and ignorance as a people, and prides himself on discovering that your intelligenice is ann empty nanie, and your independence a mock ery. Sad to tell, there are some would-be eaders, nearer home, who advise you to a temnporoiig aiid irresolute course, which, itf pu:-sued by y-ou, will lead directly to the veri fintion of this ruflian's assertion, and to the fulfilment of his secret desire. But he has been set down in the Senate chamber by our spirited Senators, and lie will be taught the sae lesson. again, by the' enlightened State lie seeks to traduce. DAliLINGTON FLAG.

Ix one of our Late numbers, we maide useI f several expressions in reference to an nr iele (af the above-named papaer, which we :ke pleasure in modifying. We perhaps re carded that article in too serious a light , and; uade certnain strictures which were unenulled or. These strictures, we have siance thought, nay haave sprung from rather a forced con truction of ccrtaina views taken by our friend f the Constitutionalist. Our excnse is that ucr comments wvere wvritten in haste, andal vithout time for proper revisioan. WVe hope le Constit utionatlist will take this voluntary mende, " as freely as 'tis freely given." In reference to the article, ini which he par ally replies to us, we amust say, that the kind xpressions for the weclfare of our Stat e, with hlieh lie concludes, are gratefully neknwl.. dged. At thme s:nnae time, we hope before ong, to convincee himt that thme several causes, rich he suggests, as likely to prove draw acks upon the prosperity of our separate xistence, are, for the most part, imaginary POWDERt MAGAZINE. THE citizens of Charleston seem disposed till to resist the removal of this Magazine as ordered by the'Legrislature at its last ses ion,) faom thme island, on whlich at present it ands, to the yard of the Citadel, which is ithin the city. Mayor SCHNzERLuE has con nuuinted with Gov. Ah..as on the subject. 'l'he Governor says lhe eannot see the danger if thae proceeding. The most skilful archi et in the State, (Mr. WIIITE.) has said that here can be no just apprehension of injurio esuls-thiat tihe Magazine, to be built, would at explode under the heat of th-- burning af all the suarrounding buildings-that, if ex alosion should result fruan enrelessness withlinu he Magazine, thec designed construction of t is such that thme force of the explosion vould bec expentded iaa an upwa:rd direction. vhile the Governor seems to be yet decided y of the opinion that the work should go on m expresses his readiness to give the objec._ ions of the city council the fullest conside ation. We are glad to hecar this ; beceause he Charlestonians arc certainly thme best udges of the injur-ies they are in danger of ,,mriner from this oration. OUR TRUE POSITION. IT is thotight by.t many of our "out-side advisers" that South Carolina is on the brink of a political precipice; and that another step will plunge her into a glph of ruin. Ma iy of her inside advisers also chime in wit h this prediction. and lift up their hads in hol' orror, at the enormity of our iropoed ae ion. One would suppose, fram their gloomy auguries, that we lived under a reign of Ter ror, more revolting than the world had eve known, or else, in a period of semi-civiliza-1 lion. where the strength of numbers over >owered the force of Justice and over-shad owed the beauty otgruth. A terrific pic ure of disaster, of~p - and of disgrnae is held up by many fnmiliar and fullY recognized consequence of resistance to op. Iression. Even a few of the generous ad ocates of genuine Freedom, have been led In tremble before the dark coloring of these ivil propliecies. and, like timid mairiners when cowling -clouds portend n.,storm, are eagerly .rying ialoud to their public sentinels, " Wat*chmen, tell us of the night, What its signs of poromnise are!'" As a reply to this anxious enquiry, we can iiot perhaps express our sense of "the hope hat is within us" more atfily, than by adopt ng the concluding lines of the stanza ve inve just quoted in parrt - - " Marinerr o'er yon dizzy height See that brightly beaming star." t is the star of South Carolina's destiny atch it with unerring devotion-as long as t sparkles on high, with its present brillian y, hope for the best and believe that it will ome; but when you perceive that its lustrel s dimmed and that it islinking into the low,i nurky atmosphere, now hr beneath it, theni flee to the iountains".or hide in the depthsl f some vast wilderness if you would notl vitness the extinction of the only well -rounded hope of Southern Equality and ndependence. These are no high-floivn expressions, ad Iressed only to the ear-:we design them as ppeals to the henrts and understandings of 1.tr citizens. They shadow forth a truth, -hich each one of us should be proud tol enlize-a truth, which otir real friend; at the outh will gladly admit and which our ene Mies, everywhere, cannot gainsay. And-it is his: That SoutirCaroijia is of all the sis ei hood, the most zealous and disinterested lefender of our Goyrnment as it should be -the most fearless and.uncompromising cne. y of our Government'as it now is. And e conscienciously bjieve, that upon the1 nshrinking maintenan of this position on er part, hangs not onfher honor, but the veal of her peopTe an he prosperity of the vhole slave-holding con try. Let us, for a mome ;review the generall rounds, upon which ro have nasumed thmi. osition, and which i icate the paramount mportneof min g it to the laist. We hrIo' which does not~ dit of denial, ti Psed-philanthropyI f the North, wfiJ afl the in/tuences it can. iring to bear, is determined upon thne destruc-I ion of the institution sof slavery. This isi heir manifest policy, which, in the pride and' solence of their growing power, they do ot pretend to disguise. We furt her believe hat it enn be said with perfect truth, that he politicians of the North, as a body, havy riven irrefragible proof of their disposition o pander to the wishies of this fanatical fune ion. For it is nndisputed by Southnern men. nt the late Compromise measures wverestu.. iously represented to that faction as an ~wering their designs, to all intents anel pur o)esC, if not, by special enactment, legislan ing their will. The gilded pill, which was dministered to the South in the shape of the1 ugive Slave Bill, is already producing the' ausa of disgust ; for it is almost demon ~trated, that this bill is futile and nugatory. t is, in a word, evident that the Abolitionists me gained by this system of measures, al most all that their hearts. can desire, while soutiern slave-holders have lost every point n dispute. We maintain, moreover, that this invete 'at e enmit y to Southern Slavery is not a feel ~g of sudden and mushroon growth-but men which dates back many years, and which is become ramified through every grade of forthrn societ y, high and low, law-abiding~ d lnw-contemning, until it has become in ~eparble from their social and politica:l char-t cter. It. is a feeling that owes its existence S much to the rpneity of Canpitalists and the1 calousy of white laborers, as to the frenzy. f faatics. This enmity was progressimg rapidly to the completion of its nefarious~ de-I gns upon our institution of slavery once1 before, although by a different course from ihat now pursued. This progress wais cleck ~d by the action of South Carolina in I1832. But the feeling of hostility only increased in rancor with this defeat, while it gathered up' dditional cunning far a renewed attnaek.' Seeing that the abolition party proper (far ina ne sense they are anll so) was gaining strengt h mvith wvonderful rapidity, our cool-headed op >oments determined at once to condnet the ame without seeming to participate in the 4rife. And even now, with the facet of col lusion proved by every prominent measure of the Compromise bills, they would have us indly believe that they arc infinenced in eir deeds solely by friendship to the South md devotion to thec Union. Thus have they lded duplicity to malignity ini their opposi 110n, thereby giving another evidence of their rlemoni:e determination to annihilate our power atnd prosperity. One other development there is to which y will briefly allude itn this connexion. Iti the tanifest disposition of Northern politi inns to run into consolidation. Here is mnother cause of distraction. which must tend most powerfully to. complete the dis ruption of the few remaining ties, that holdj together this confederacy of States; The reeds of the two great divisions of the [Union, are, upon this point, utterly antago niistic and as deeply rooted on etihner side as ong lnteliud cmoinins ever become.

The right of peaceably dissolving the Co- Iii partnership, by the single aetion of any one s of the States. is hooted at by the highest au- I thority of the Northern Unionists, as an ab- 45 surdity.

He is a dolt, who can v believe otherwise. Almost every system of measures proposed in the National Leghila- s tare, from that quarter, evince the taint of t this doctrine. IfV If there be any truth in the views abovet taken, it is clear that the hopes of the Union are gone-forever gone. Dissolution or L Consolidation is the only alternative left us. I In dissolution, the only hope for the slave- t holding.States is to be found.
