THE EMPIRE OF SOUTH CAROLINA. QuKtllctiiini ill motion I South Carolina about ready to "do or die!' Great Excitement in Buncombe ! fjy The Charlulon .Murcury. tnc organ ot . - i 1 Mr. Calhoun, hxi deteniiineu to suppon L;ius and Butler, and thinks the vote of the State y will hp rrivnn to tliem. It states that it was forced into tliis position by the organization of a TVor parly in the State. The "chivalry" of Sonth Carolina can't go for Taylor at any rate. , They perceive "the most alarming conseipien- ccs" as likely to flow from his election and the triumph of Whig principles, and "a Taylor ..mi i f - ...i. Party" having been formed among " the tierce democraciu" of their Stitc, they think it about time to raise the banner of Cass fy Butler ! It appears that our respectable nullifying brethren of the Palmetto Stitc resolved on get ting up a littlo private thunder to welcome the return of John C. Calhoun and Mr. Butler, their Hemtors. So a great gathering, which filled the Theatre in Charleston, v. as assembled on the I8th instant and a portentous amount of indignant patriotism was evolved. llr.Cu, iiouti in the most solemn manner, and with a great frown, recommended his Oregon policy of & montcrly inactivity" on the Presidential question ; and spoke darkly uud gloomily of a "great slruggli" that was to ensue between the North and the South, w hen tli3 question of Slavery in Sew Mexico and California came to , , . ,ii be settled, next winter, lie rather expected it would be carried against South Carolinia, w hen he thought it advisiblo tint tlio Kingdom of South Carolina in general, and the "whole South" in particular, should be " prepared !" As for the " great struggle" itaelf, with a dreary and unromantic vision of "gnus and baggoncts," Sir. Calhoun, in conclusion, that He did not court il.linl he would not shun it ; nnd oMashe was he wns williu, to po tnroupn in. share ul Ihe contest Whereupon universil Quattlcbuin raised a mighty shout that is supposed to hive shaken Buncombe to its centre, and knocked tlio "Tuy- lor party" into fits! Buiicombe, we believe, is 'in .Vorfi Carolina, but it is apparent that this great "demonstration" was intended for that lati- tndc. On the 21th, five days after, a groat mertirg was held in CharkMon "to nominate a ramli. dte for the Presidency.''

Attain: the irreut Holy Alliance at lluff.ilo, nhuiidantly favored with Hen Butler's chief want when he was financiering in Sandy mil to wit: "the Htatcd preaching of the gospel.' The Rev.

The sp'ech ol .Mr. Shalier contained pas.sage ihe strength and eieg-inee ol w huh pave un mistakable evidence ol u masterly and highly culii vnlid intellect. The burden ol" his sgieech was nu abortive attempt to convince the lew whips pretent, llial Gen. Taylor was not pledged lonou-inierleu-iiee with Ihenciiou of Congrns itiuii the subject of Slave ry extension. The Signal and Allison letters were read uud commented upon in ast)le, borne portions of which smacked strongly of ptltijvggin. In his endeavor to show llial the conclusion drawn therefrom by Ihe whips was llie result of " tjtee ions reasoning" he hinneil stood forth a glaring e.;an'plnr of what he was laboring loeipose. But the weakest point in his sjHtcli was that in which he assumed that Gen, Tay 'or, in declaring his intention, 111 the event of luseleu lion, to leave ull matters of domestic poliey" to the action of Congress, designedly made use ol'llie phrase domestic poliey, as inapplicable to the Pacific Terri tories. He said they have in England three policies, viz. the doineslic, Foreign and Colonial, each distinct from the others ; and as Gen. Taylor used the Bag- liMInffH,gf,i.e.,i.iSi ueunuei.looitnS recogiuiing those, well known biiglisliihslinclions. He failed to . , , , , , . , . mention what must have been present in bis mind.

"All, that seems desirable in order lo gratify ihe " hopes, secure the reverence, and sustain the dignity " of ihe nation, is, that it (ihe executive department) "should alwi)s be occupied by a man of elevated tab "ems, of ripe virtues, of incorruptible integrity, and " ol tried patriotism ; one, who shall forgei his own " interests, and remernVr, llial he represents NOT A " PARTY, HUT THE WHOLE NATION ; one, ' whose lame may be rested with posterity, not opon " the lalse eulogies ol favorites, but upon the folid mer "it of hiving preserved the glory, and enhanced the " prosperity id the country."
