¿t¡Sm . A KXÁCTLT AS Wt PBEDICTED. It has not been very many wee lis and days since we told the people of the South, what we supposed would be the resiilt of the re- vira! of the slave trade. We thought the idea itsért" foreshadowed ila consequences, but we did n'Ot look to see our prediction so soon end no promptly Verified. His Excel- lency, Gov. Adams, boldly advocated such a measure as s sort of collateral protection to tbe South and Southern Institutions. The Hon. R. Barnwell Rhett, with a wreckless- aess of reasoning rarely equaled, plead in thunder tones any alternative that would secure the disolution of the Union. And as s matter of course, would prefer a disolu- tion, together with a war with half of Eu- rope to remaining longer under the Union flag of tbe stars and stripes. Would it not be well for such fire-eating disunionist— such pliable political demagogues, to pause, ere their madness results in distruction to the very institutions that the^ themselves would save and...

®¡is|tugton^nteric¡tu¡ UTO PASTY MEN The celebrated Dean Swift, in a passage of one of his essays, has hit the true char- acter of a neutral in politics to the life. He very properly says that whoever gives him- self this character, you tnay depend upon it, ia of one party, but it is such a party as he is ashamed to own: for even while he sajrs he 5s of no party, you niay observe from the whole drift of his conversation that he is plainly prejudiced in favor of one party, and that, too, always the worst. The true rea- son for his not declaring his preference is, that he thinks the party is not yet strong enough to protect hiin. The justice of the cause the goodness of the intention, is en- tirely out of his calculation. The only dis- tinction he goes by, is to be politically of no party, that he may be occasionally of either. Others there are. who are really of a party, and do not know'it; they carry on designs which are kept secret from them ; and these indeed are such insignifican...
