SCHEMES AND CONJEeTURES.
The battle of the Presidential election having gone
by, leaving a comparatively calm-field, the political
acumen of ihe country is keeping itself employed (as
usual) with schemes and conjectures of every grade
Of the schemes nfloat, one of the most important
in appearance is that of Senator TooMBs, of Georgia,
in relation to the taxation by the Southern States
(each of course for herself) of any or all such com
modities from without their borders as are not import
ed immediately into their own marts. The Senator
cor.templates, by this process, the establishment of
direct trade, with its many advantages, and the en
riching of our State Governments. Bnt others con
tend that such enactments would operate tyrannical
ly, inaemuch as Southern merchants (who are pre
sumed to he the best judges in-snch matters) prefer
the present mode of obtaining their goods, through
the great port of New York, to any more direct road
of importation ; and that, ergo, it is not better for our
people that direct trade he established by a prohibition
upon all other channels. While there is some ri-azon
in this objection of expediency, it is yet to be denied
that the past practise of Southern merchants is a
fair criterion by which to estimatethat expediener.
Long habit has acou-stomed them to regard importa
tionq. via New York, sufficient for all their mercan
tile ends and gnd enouh for all purposes of South
ern economy. Whatever may be the additional cost
incnrred. by reason of the State and Municipal taxes
of New York, the merchant does not lose it. It be
comes a part of the price of his merchandize and
upon which he markes as much profit as though, at
that price, lie hiad imported his goods direct. It is the
consumer who sustains the injury, and no one else ;
and the consumer, properly enlightened, is the man
to determine the expediency of the proposed change
upon its correct grounds. While, therefore, we de
mur to this manner of objection to the scheme of Col.
Toomas, we are not prepared to say how much better
(if any, in the present condition of things) direct im
portation woull prove to be than the present mode of
receiving foreign goods, through the manifold facili
ties of New York enterprize. A broader and a bra
ver scheme than that of Senator Toomas is visible
through the policy of Free Trade, already foreshadow
ed as a part of the American Democracy'l future
creed. Still, the honorable Senator's plan is striking,
and there may be more in it than some are willing to
admit. It is a very good thing to think about at all
events, in the absence of anything better.
Another of these vacation-schemings is purely anti
democratic, and has keen engendered by the belief
that the Democratic party must in a short time fall to
pieces upon the slavery question. It is said with
great confidence by the man-uverers of this strata
gom, that the Northern Democrats do not mean to
stand up to the principles of the Kansas and Nebraska
hills, and that the party will split upon this rock of
dissnsion. Whig, Know Nothing and Abolition pa
pers and politicians are catching at the idea with the
avidity of drowning men, and we regret to see a few
journals in the Democratic ranks lending their assent
to the proposition. From the evidence thus far ad
dnced, the whole idea would appear to be but the
figment of dreamers. Before it can become a reality,
the greatest party that has ever battled for the Right
in any country, must prove recreant to the essential
elements of its strength. It must turn upon that
Constitution, which has been the basis of its power.
anl trample its sacred folds into the dust. It must
renounce its greatexponents or the past-its JEFFER
soX, its J.tcsos-, its CALtnoUN, its DALLAS. ye, and
its BUCtANAN too--and consent to fraternize with the
co-adjttors of sich men as GREE.Y, and GA aAsoN,
and SuUm ca. We are not willing to indulge, for a
moment, thte thought of so infamous a back-sliding.
Our source of Hope. nowe, is the pillar of fire which
leads on the great Democratic column. Until that
fire is extinguished, we are of those wvho regard these
pre-dictions of a Democratic overthrow with increduli
ty, if not with scorn.
Othier schemes are talked of. EEP' Thmeanne.ration

Of the class of conjectures, the most notable have
peculiar reference to the incoming Adlministration.
Who is to be Secretary of State ? who, of War ? who.
of the Treasury? who is to be the occupant of this,
that and the other post of honor, or of profit? whlo is
to be minister to the Conet of St. James ? who, to
France ? or Russia ? or to Blelgium? whto, consul to
Havanai who, to Liverpool, the richest berth of
them all ? various are thme conjectures on all these
puiints of ititerrogatiomn. Curiosity is on the wing
frtgn mortnirng till tnighot, anid Ingennmity is put to her
otmost stretch to tdicover thte correct answer to each
enquiry. The otnly one matter all seem to agree
about, is that Senator CAss is to be Premier. As to
the rest, smrmises are as plenty and as dlissimilar as
the tbirds otf the Truopics. Each Quidntunc has his
gness, wvhiich lie is pleased to call a strong probahmlity.
Washington letter-writers (a small hireling brood at
the best !) talk with the most impudent confidlence
nhott the appmintmetnts, ench one hinting significanthy
that hois informatiort is from the best possilue sotirces
andl may be relhed on. And yet eaeho ouie of these

namues. Of course it is all pure conjecture, madle up
fromn street-corner conversatiotns. Old Bnck, we
have no dotnht, wvili keep lois own counosels until the

meon as will formi, by thme combination of their genius
ando patriotism, a bulwark for thec Constitution against

tion. rThe first great desideratum is, that thme Federal
appointments be made from among thtose who deserve

have been educated in thoe school of theConstitution,
and whose powers of judgment and thought are fully
rirmed and mattured. It is such men alone, who can
properly meet the pemoditng crisis in American affairs
antI disappoint the expectations of those, the wide
worlod over, who secretly hiope to witness thie disrup

to that opinion. If mankind areio fond;.of change

us believe, why is it that we havto tear ourselves

friendship? 'Ihe trees, beneathbose shade we
have often rested, the ripplingstreamlets, with

A rad accide~nt ha-ppened in this vicinity a few
days ago. John O.borne, a youth about fourteen
years old, in attempt~iing to drimb his oxen through
a gate, was caught between tlbe eart and the gate
post and intsuantly killed. It was supposed that his
neck was broken. Poor little fellow ! lIe staggered
back two steps, :tnd fell to rise unamre. lle ntever
spoke ngaiin, or showed any signts of htfe except a
slightt quivering of the undler lip.
There is a Flouring Mill in this neighborhood
which deserves special noitie. There mnay be many
others of the ,'une sort in operation throughout the
Staite, tbut your correspondent has ttever heard ol
them. lBy an ingenious cont;rvanxo, the " seW

cloths to the stines, anud e..nverted into superfine
flaur. The wheat, shorts and middlings atre all
ground toecther, the latter being conveyed into tha.
eaye of the stone, whil.-t the formaer runs in fronm
te happier as usual. What you gain by this method
of grind ng is this : out of one hundred bushels of
wheat, for instance, instead of gettinag sixteen bar
rels of tine flour, four of middlinags and one of
shorts, you get twenty-one barrels oaf tine white

it is one that may yet assumn -.n imiporltnee in

Th.e volenno is not extinct, but only aleeping,

Should Louis Najoleon ally hiimself with

We have not forgotten. that when the Govern.

because it uffurdcd an asyluin to Louis Napoleon
after lie hnd -become tnd outcast, branded and
proscribed as' a revolutimist and traitor, the
Swiss Goveriuuunt -remained firm, and -refused
w ith hersie b'o4iness, either. tosurrender or ex

Siras.bonrg wan thin profuse in espressions of

the enjoy ment of unlimited power, inoluding'the
power to. rrqiite lis -benefactors, lie even pre

riahtenus reistai-e .to the arrogant demanda of
Prussia. But the exactions of political expedi
eney are as boundless as his ingratitude is base.
Everythini-hnor, gratitude, moral obligation,
and ft mav be interest, must be sacrificed to a
sense of polilcal expedieny. Here is what
the ungrateful monarch said vhen he was about
to retire front the country which had given him
an asylum. Comment is unnecessary:
"Switzerland has demonstrated, during a
month by her energetic protests, and now by
the decisions ef the great Councils which have
assembled up to the present time, that she was
prepared to make the greatest sacriices for the
maintenance of her dignity and her right. She
has done her duty as an independent nation. I
shall perform mine, and remain faithful to the
voice of honor. I may be persecuted, but I
never shall be dishonored."
"In voluntarily quitting to.day the only coun
try in Europe in' which I-found support and pro.
tection-in withdrawing from places which had
become dear to me in so many respects,1i hope
to prove to the Swiss people-that-I was worthy
of the marks of esteem and. affection they lav
ished on me."
DTY ON SUGA.
The queslion of the duty on sugar has attrao
ted some attention, and 'nuy of our Northern
exchanges are clear in the conviction that it
would be better to abolish it. From statements
made it appears that though the crop has great
ly fluctuated, there has still been a steady in
crease. Last year there was only 100,000 hogs
heads, each hop-head weighing about 1,100

that it amounts to 260,00Q hogsheads, or the
one-t th uga nsumed in the United
State. derest .umstances, it is con
tended y the Journal: of Commerm, of New
York, that as a mneasure. of prudence, as well as
of justice to the South, thl sugar duties should
be continued in equal proportion to other duties,
whose object is to encourage domesoc produc
tion. We think free trade wonji be better.
Every headof a family pays threEaztsa pound
upon all the sugar he nsumes, and this is more
than the collateral tage to him. of having
it-'raised in Louisiana, ether than in Cuba; in
fact, to us on the Southern Atlantic sea-board,
it would be better to have it raised in Cuba, for
then we would start a commerce-in exchange for.
it. Still, if protection is to be kept up as a set
bed policy, and if the North is solicitous to
draw out from all the bifrthens of it, so as to
leave them on the South, we would hold on to
the sugar duty to the extent to which they con
adine, that they will share in. supporting the
government, which without would seem, to set
tle entirely upon us.
As a source of revenue this duty on sugar has
at least the merit of going more directly to the
revenue of e country than any others. The
suga im' .is 850,000,000, upon which the
dty is two cents per pound. This yields $17,
000,000. There are imported 40,000,000 gal
16ns nolisses'aL five. cents per gallon, making
$2,000,0003 together $19,000,000. Of this
only about six millions goes to the support of
the Louisiana planter, while $13,000,000 goes
into the treasury of the United States; and of'
this the North pays at least the one-half. By
the sugar tax we have a hold on themi to that
extent, and as it is almost the only one for
which they are not abundantly compensated by
sonme collatiterl advantage, if we would ever
have their aid in an adjustnment of the tariff, it
is manifestly our policy to hold them on to this.
* CHANGE OF PUBLIC OPINION.
The Daily Newis, of New York, a conserva
tive Democratic journal, expresses the belief
that a change is taking place in the public opin
ion of the popular mind in relation to Federal
poliics. It says:
"Since the election of James Buchanan a
change has come over the spirit of the popular
miiid, at least itf we may judge from the mode
rate tone of~ the press in every part of thc coun
try andt of all shades of' opiniion. The ultt-aists
and extremiists of every quarter stand rebuked
by the triumph of the Democracy and its rep
resentative man. James Btuchanaan. The Ne
braska bill expresses perfect neutrality on the
great exciting question of the day-it eschews
at once radicalism on either flank-it was a
measure not of compromise, but of jumst mnoder
ation, atnd its spirit is perfectly expressed in thme
character of the great statesman of Pennsyl
We are pleased to notice this also in the modi
fled views of some of the most violent opponents
of the South at Washington, and while they
still retain hostility to her institutions they dits
laim much of what constituted their capital in
the late contest. Our private advices are that
the Black Republicans are a good deal di cour.
aged, and that a favorable reaction is in progress
at the North. Much depends on the incomin;
adinist rationi and the sagacity of Mr i. ]lucha
nan, in whom we have conidenmce. ie knows
full wvell that during his term the fate of the
Union will I.e decidled, and we have no doubt
he will give the weigmhit of his influence towards
the preserv~atin of egnal rights under thme Con
stitution, as lias been done hby the illustrious pa
triot, President Pierce, wvho hans so nobly dlone
his duty to the country during hais term.~ The
South has, with a sintgle exception, voted for
Mr. Bluchanan as a Constitutional Presidlent.
and will support him as such. As our political
union depends on popular opinion, which can
only be permanent whent based on constitution
al principles, it is essential to its existence that
there should be a change, and that speedily, in
those sections where the Constitntion has beeni
a dead letter. The South is now the conserva
tive element of our Government, and with per
fet union among ourselves wve can perpetuate
not only the protection of our rights, but time
confederacy which, with all its difficulties, is
the best polity that the world has yet seen.
Many a man shifts his sinis as men do their
clothes, they gt off one to p~ut on another; this
is but waiting on the devil in a new livery.
