A Few Hits-?The Southern Patrio', (the
paper recently establishei^fft Orcenville, l>y
our fiiemls, 31 essrs. Perry <Si Klford, whose
opinions us gentlemen and lawyers, we would
regard with much deference, on any" question
except a political one) was not only lucky in
obtaining a good spoonful of pap i:i advance of
-^publication from the President, but was also
heralded into light with any quantity of pulls,
and*fl by distinguished men. This we believe
would be called by Sheridan the "puff preiimi
nary," aiid it is well understood by our friends
down East By the application of this puff,
our Yankee publishers can start any periodical
with a goodly list of subscribers, while other !
men more modest, have to toil on year by year,!
uiui Southern Journals have often led a Jan- i
guishing existence foe years. Our friends of j
the Patriot, however, are more lucky, foi in ad- j
dition to the thousand negroes and several hun
dred thousand dollars worth of property, and
the two thousand subscribers, they started with j
a supply of letters, all expressing the '
knowledge and belief of the writers that the
Soul hern Patriot would revolutionize (< recti- j
ville, or turn aside Reedy river, or manifest its j
appearance by some striking phenomenon.
Among other salutations in advance, which i
were sent on to be ready in time, is the follow- j
ing extract of a letter, which we are tol l was
received from a gentleman of distinction in !
Richland district." "1 a n realh impatient to :

fintm t nm anro everv Southern Patriot reveres
the name of Washington, as well as his precepts,
ami of coarse loves our glorious Union, ami is
ever ready to defend its stars and stripes. I
am not alone in anxiety to see the mountain
herald?many gentlemen have inquired of me
to know when we should see it?Dr.
told me on Saturday last to say to you, that he
was never so anxious to welcome a paper, as
he was to see yours. As soon as it appears
you may expect geveral subsoiihers from this
neighborhood/' We trust the impatience of
the "gentleman of distinction in I'ichlaml dis
triet " iiiioxv fully satisfied, ns by this lime two
numbers must have reached him, with "pictures
to match too?the first number having a likeness
of John J. Crittenden; and the second the
same old Dr. Jacob Townseud looking sort of
a print, .which has passed in the South for a
likeness of Lew's Cass, the gentlemanpwhH is
so astonished that any body should conceive
he was not a candidate for the Presidency in
1852. .
We only meant to give our readers, however,
a little hint or so, and here it is : Is there
not at least one gentleman of distinction in
Richland, and 'every other district, who can
profit by the example here given, and try to do
something for the paper which expresses his
seutinreirta, or which ho thinks is advocating
the right course f We ask for information, and
we pause for a reply.?Columbia Telegraph.
The California correspondent of the New
York Tribune. wiites as follows:
"Our Legislature is on the eve of electing a
U. S. Senator, arid we fear the result, thousands
of our. peofde are from the Southern States,
many of whom in the highest offices, and are
constantly urging the introduction of slaves into
the State. All our journals, and we have
many, are either silent on the subject, or speak
openly in favor of the institution. A wrong
impression obtained at the North in regard t
the adoption of California to slave labor. In
point of fact, no State in the Union is more favorable;
none where slave labor could be more
Iinifituhly employed. No State in the Union

have proved otherwise?and in all probability
that which nature intended, it will vet Ik* in

As for the genius who expects to astonish
the natives by endeavoring to supress the resources
of the country, we think that to do so
he will have to export some of those supernatural
agents from his own favored laud, hut we
scarcely anticipate it bv remarkable evidences
of gcniu6 or talent which his productions in the
way of journalizing will exhibit.

Abolishment of the Cat?Its Advantages.?Capt.
Mcintosh, of the frigate St. Lawrence,
in a letter from Rio Janeiro to a friend ,
nt New York, speaks highly in tavor of the advantages
resulting on board of his vessel from
the abolishment of flogging. He has also substituted
double duty as a punishment, instead of
the irons. The good men 011 board of his vessel
are, however, in favor of the lash. The letter
" I shall never have a difficulty in managing
j ii crew, ii the uoverumeni win give me, as uicj
! have it this time, capable officers, and gentleI
men, to assist me. 1 have some bad men, it is

When shail the Convention le held ! The act
of the Legislature says, the Convention shall l e
held iifter the meeting ot tne noumern r ongress,

upon a day.
Shall we wait until after the Southern Congress
shall have met? It we wait until that indclinite
day, we ma" as well at once abandon all thought
of the Convention and prepare to submit with a
grace as little ill as we can command. But we
are not prepared to abandon the idea of the Convention,
and therefore, the earliest daycontemplnted
by the . ct of the Legislature should he fixed
upon as the time for the assembling of the Convention.

may take the place of action, and instead of
the pride of success, shame and tu judication.

Senators Rhett and Houston.
Our Senator Mr. Rhett, has recently in thp Senate
of the United States, corrected some ol the
misstatements, and untruths of the notorious Texan
hero, in regard to South Carolina, and her laws,
I Constitution, &.c. Mr. Houston s ill seems writhj
ing under the lash, which lias been applied to him,
j and will let no pportunity pass, of indulging his
! wrath against I'alme^-dom lor the castigalion
i which he has received from time to time for his
j misconduct. We think Mr. Rhett, has sufficient|
ly shown that his late "tissue of untruths" are
i gratuitous a rid ituquaiincu "assertions imcriy nes;
tituto of foundation." General Houston states
' upon his authority that tho Constitution of Sou h
Carolina is obviously fashioned upon an aristocratic
"'lhc people, as such, li.ive very little control
oft)flairs. No man can vote who does not
own fifty acres of lan I or the equivalent, or pay
a high tax. No man can he a member of the
Legislature whoso freehold is not worth one
J hundred pounds sterling, clear of debt, or be
j tho Governor with less than fifteen hundred*
i pounds sterlings free of debt. Tho elections
! are all confined to members of the Legislature,

Sheriffs and Parish Judges. The Legislature

I United States, and can change or amend the
Constitution when it sees fit. The (lovcrnmont
is a complete oligarchy?even more so
than in Rhode Island under its royal charter.
One of two facts must be evident: the people
have no genuine spirit of freedom, or they
would not have submitted so long to this oppressive
dominion of mere wealth. In no other
State would ft have been tolerated so tamely.
In Rhode Island they have turned when trodden
upon, but in South Carolina they seem to
wear their chain without a murmur; and yet the
self-constituted leaders of her councils have the
cool impudence to designate others as 'submissiouists.'
These descendants of the Huguenots
and cavaliers have peculiar notions of freedom

laws and Constitution of the Federal Government,
or secede from tiio Confederacy. This
state of things clearly proves that, of all men
in the world, the good people of the Palmetto
Statp are the best adapted to faction and discord.''
After Mr. Rhctt has examined each article in
Mr- Houston's version of the Constitution, and
nvnlnineH the true statement oflhines. as thrv
really exist, showing that a large number of the
local officers are elected by the people, indeed the
people in the end elect all theft" officers. lie shows
the Texan Senator, that the election ot" United

ofthcConstituton of the United States, a fact w)|ilh
every man ought to kuow?to say nothing of
Stnaiort, who liko our San Jacinto hero, can de
scant so eloquently on liberty^ Royalty to the
Union " &c. Mr. Houston is very willing to admit r ,
