If so, then we must decline giving to our Charleston contemporary the desired information. * * We may not betray the Old School organ which was so injudicious as to follow what, in our view, _w&s but the prompting of the simplest and most natural of Christian feelings in suggesting that we...

_FOBEIGJff. England.—The Parliament were debating about Garibaldi in the House of Lords. Lord Brougham took occasion to speak a kind word for Garibaldi, and expressed the opinion that the Constitution granted to Naples would be a great failure, and he hoped it would fail to save the detestable tyrant of Naples.
