Mr. E'iitoi : We Concluded our last article
with a comment on the road from Wil
liamston to Wilson's Uridjjc, on Saluda
River. The crops from Wilson's liridge
to Cowan's Bridge on Reedy Itivor, arc goncr.dlv
pretty good. The Into corn has been
greatly injured by the late drouth. In the
lo\Y.jr n.irt of (Iraohville and utmor mrfc of
? r i
L turaus district, they have not h.-id any
rain, only one or two small showers ("just
enough to lay tho dust) for k'ix or seven

well, from the fact that a grout many of the
placcs we passed wore pleasantly associated
\rith the past. We arrived at Kdon, in
Laurens district, just us the bright (tod of
day was shedding his last resplendent rays i
o'er hill and dalo, and ^ildin<c the lofty ,
oaks with its mellow golden hue. The
sccnc was enchanting-?the nir fragrant with
the hanging foddor, which had beon gathered
just long enough to produce a di'lieious
odor to those who have uny tasto for
farming. Eden is situated in one of the I
ploasantcst and healthiest portions of tlic 1
district. And if one of the most romantic
places in a district surrounded bv beautiful
oaks and hickorys?roses and varies ited
flowers,and twining tendrils?and occupied
by a kind and accommodating gentleman,
ami u number of lovely and highly accomplished
young ladies, with plenty of all the
neoessafifta of lifo will constitute an Kd'un
in this country, the place is right'y named.

Col. Orr has never failed sis ;i Southern
man to appreciateand understand the Northern
National Democracy in their relations
to the South and to the Union.
At the South the opponents of the Democratic
party labor to defeat it by making
Southern Democrats believe that all Northern
Democrats are Abolitionists. On this
point Southern men are art to be too eredlilting*

is treacherous to tin: Constitution, they denounce
the whole indiscriminately, and thus
furnish the Abolitionists with the argument
they use must effectively to draw oil' Northem
Democrats from their fraternity with
the South. Looking back, we find that
tho united Northern and Southern Democracy
have twelve times electcd Democratic
Presidents. In neither ease could they
have succeeded without this union. Look
j* i ?? ? n i .1

The nu neriial h.it..lice in the 1 . t< htweeu

T'c idont but with the National Democrats
oi the .North, when united, they always

Now llio practical issue 011
State lli<>'ht? has eoine down to the Mile
upon question of the power ot' Congress
over.slavery in the Territories. On every
other point the Northern and Southern united
Democracy have achieved permanent
First, th?"y settled it, that by the Consti
tuliou no State had granted to Congress any
power to interfere witU its domestic institutions
; and that consequently its forms of
labor are its own, just as inviolable as its
forms of faith.
Historical research litis developed a great
fact to strengthen this position now impregnable,
viz: that t lie colonics instructed the
delegates they sent to the Congress, that
they should agree to ueclarc the unilea euiov.ies
independent only on the condition
" that the regulation <fl- the internal a flairs
of each colony should bo li ft to its own
Legislature." John llaucoelr. of Matsa
chusetts, was the fivst ti? introduce this principle
into tlio Constitut'oti of tlio United
States, hy his nincuduignts, ' reserving to
the respective States all powers not delejjnted
to the United States." But Massachu
setts hsu- persistently repudiated Hancock
and the Constitution, and demanded con
solid.ition : first, when she wanted her coin moroo,
nnd second, when she wanted her
tariff to rulo the Union. Now she demands
Northern consolidation to rule the South
by insisting that Congress sh ?1! prohibit
slavery in the territories. Defeated everywhere
else on the former dogmas, she has
just defeated herself on the last, by her
iiepTesentatives in Congress voting for the
Crittenden-Montgomery bill for tho admission
of Kansas. thus conceding that the new
States shall decide the question asto slavery.
Tt is Encouraging to note the progress of
the argument and tho force of constitutional
truth. First, thoy were compelled to
admit that Congress has no power over
slavery in tho old States ; when they inaisted
that they could restrict it in ? now State
and struck at the sovereignty of Missouri.
Hut tlitt Nftrihnrn nnil Southern
cy nettled the prinoijile thero that u now
St ito comes into tho Union with all the.
poworH of an old State, because CoQgretw
chh admit nothing loss than n St'to. Th*
ofior iuude in that adjustment wag admitting
<1 ji'OUJI I iUlU Ufi it u!v!S!&m of th?*
rights of tho States in tho Territories.?- i
From flint error sprang up tho conflict on j
tho i??Mo uf tho. powur of Congress to prohibit
slavery in tho Tcrritorlow, ?n?l hero ?
great swarm of jjpmoeruts ufc tho North
rushed into Abolitionism. Tho honest
HltiOMg them woro misled by the specious
argument, that if slavo Inbor wont into n
Xcrrfoery, free hrbor murt do
lint the National Dcmocvnt.s saw live soj>li- j
istry and replied. " by the game rule, that
it' tree labor only is to be admitted, that excludes
the South with her labor, and that
i is unjviHi tomo jHmtii, lor tlie Territories I
i belong equally to nil."
A sound I'mou man could not fail to
see, that to settle the constitutional question
of shivery in Territories, the same rule
\vn8 to ho applied i;* in the equality of the j
()!ll and IH'.U' S'f^tos mill flint tv-.u n
equality of sill t Iso States it) all tlie Terri'
