SLICK AXD niS COMPANY. This distinguished personage, we .fcsva been In': - formed, is very tangible, but not very-visible.) He and his company "prefer the darkness rajjber; than light." " In days of yore, when the western country was infested by refugees from Unsold states, hang. ing upoirthe skirft of society and sitting the" law at defiance, Capt. Slick and his company were- tolerw ted; not because the better part of society bad no respect tor law and order, butram the necessity of the thing'. And, moreover, we believes that the,said Slick's company , in those days, was composed of jjru.- dent, temperate men ; men who never inflicted punish' -.

One man armed himself , with three (vns, pistols, dirks &cr planted himself at the market-house, & swore if the law would not defend him that he would defend himself, Manyjithers . were similarly armed, and in a sunilar humor for blood & carnage.

'J0RTH AM ERICAMC REVIEW.' In the C.X1X number of the above work, there is an article, on the great Senatorial DlIhUc, on Mr, Foote's resolutions, at the last session' of Congress in reviewing which, the writer is naturally enongb led to the consideration of Sauthera;p6litks-:the nulllfyingsysten&c. So far as we' are capable ef judging, this article it worthy of all praise that can be bestowed upon it. We wish we could be in any . : wise instiuuiental in it's being read by every citizen i 1 ' in these United States, particularly' by South Caro- Jinaand Oeorgia. We suspect that the Southern politicians have beep honestly deceived in the spirit and import of the so-much-talktd-of Virgiuia aud Kentucky resolutions; and we hope, after' a pern. sal tf the article in question, together -with Mr. Madisoh's letter, they will ingenuously acknowledge lU ;s As the Reviewer observes: It must happen to . every man, not professing the somewhat rare en. dowment of infallibility, to have occasion, on great x and ditiirult points, to revise his first impressions and in the complicated relation of naiibnal politics, ' the man who boasts that he has never changed an , Opinion, boasts only that he has never acknowledged . , nor corrected an error.

Nonne,sure-' 4y, will undertake to draw a distinction be tween the doctrines of. Virginia and Geur-y. fjia in ISDl. and those ol South Caroliiia in H 1828, to the advantage of the latter.

On the day that the Intelli gence should be received, that South Carolina hfd obstructed the execution of a law of the United Rtatts. the Presidents if lie did his duty, would call out the militia of North Carolina, ot 1 ennessee, and ot ueor- gia,: to enforce it tas Gerieral Washington Called out the militia of New Jersey, renn V'lvania, Virginia,:(ind Maryland; in 1794;' r'av.: he would cull out the militia of South Carrlina herself, for one cf the three cases, which the Cnvtitution provides; and the example of Massachusetts has well taught the States of this Unin to beware of with holding their militia, when called out under an act ot Uongrev or ot undertaung' to judge for themselves whether the exigency exists.' (Then the port 'of Charleston, if declared tree by South Carol nna, would be put in a stute of blockade-by Congress. The Columbus, and the Independence, and the Franklin, and the Brandy wine, and the Lexington, would .one by one take their stations on the edge of the bar; and last of all, the poor old Constitution herself, al most coeval with -her1 afflicted namesake, would obey the unwelcome summons. She would come, not skimming over the waves like the sea-birdthat scarce wets- bis bo-, som fcn their showy crests; not ringing with glad shouts, and the rapture of anticipated triumph; as when she ranged like a mighty monster of the deep, beneath the castles of Tripoli striking them dumb as she -passed; or as when she spread her broad and glorious banner to the winds, and rushed, like a strong man. rejoicing to run a race, on the Guerriere and the lava. . Her dark and weather-beaten sides would loom slowly and .mournfully from, the deep. . Who . will not weep, that shall see her sadly dis playing her beautiful banner, witb one bright star veiled forever; witb one dear1 stripe effaced, one ofthe old thirteen, that was emblazoned upon the broad folds, when they were fiisvuhrolled on the morning of Independency; rjl was nt obliterated, when tht'yvv,"f4 trailed Miing, torn and dragged witu'lTooCf in thedaysof the court-; try's tribtilation; but now.nhis, voluntarialy blotted from1 them by S uth Ctrolitia her self?

By the necessity of the political system in which we live; a necessity liHonger than mm and stronger than par u-v, whatsnever State slmll drop from thiaiTi'ipn, will fall into the arms, of England. We know that this WouU be a bitter necessity toa patriotic State, but it would be her inevitable doom. Scarcely will the squadron of the United Sta'es have appeared off the waters of Chail-stem, to engng reluctantly in a civil war With their I . , . sVirjil.Ceorgic.

Carolina. Into what con dition will this plunge the United States, or the disunited State? We freely admit, that it would plunce the United States into an abyss of suffering. On South Carolina itself, it would bring a t'irer scourge than foreign or civil war, a 6dihm pfuxquam tlvilt in which, irt the most terific sense: a man's foe thaU. be (host oAjf own kouaefiold.- vi . ins is nut ne idiiyuage ot one who loots with indifference at the irdens; real or Imaginary,-of any part of the Uiiion..Tt is not the language of taunt' or derision.-.

The Exports for this month will make the total Foreign Lxports reach about 850,000 hels-, mid to this the estimated consumption in the United States at 130,000 bales, and it will make the last crop reach 980,000 bales. v-;; t vv v " : At present it is impossible to make any thing like a rorieet eslimate.of the' present crop; this Stale will evidently fall full one third short of the last year. It ia estimated that Georgia will export but. little short of what she did the last season, owing to the increased cultivation in the back counties of that State. - N.Carolina will fall short nearly in proportion to this State; from Virginia we have no correct information. Our advices from Alabama and Ten. ncssee are unfavorable; but in those States the cultivation has been considerably extended the present year, and may make aprhe deficiency, ; which otherwise would have occurred from the dry season From New Orleans, jtiev write, that it it estimated their exports will exceed that of the past season. ' Mum led to believe,, from all the information I can collect, that the present crop of the United States, will fall but little short of the last, if any. . , It it well now to turn our ultention to the supplies Great Britain and France will receive the ensuin" year, front other Cotton growing countries. The enhanced value of Cotton in Great Britain over the ruling prices of last year, is fully 20 per cent, at our latest dates, and should prices go up to 7d a 8d. the advance will be 25 per cent. This will evidently augment the supplies from In. dia, Brazilnd Egypt, and draw every bale from the United States, and may create a re-action in prices ; this must evidently be the case, should the consumption fall off materially. This I am not apprehensive of, unless the late revolution in France should draw some of the European powers into i contest, of which there is but little prospect from the feelings of England and other powers towards France, on the late change of affairs in that country; nor do I suppose, even remotely, that the Manufactories of France will be disturbed. ' Cotton has evidently, with all other articles of produce for Eoreign Exports, been affected, uiore or less in prices, by the Tariff, and will continne to he affected, to a greater extent every year, while it remains at the rate it now is. Its effects for the last two yffars have not been so much felt as it will in its future operations The heavy import of Goods from Europe, prior to the Tariff taking effecr, (and in anticipation of it) with the large amount jmiuj--gled through Canada, has kept the market supplied. The smuggling trade has been checked by the efficient measures taken by the Officers ot Government and the surplus stock of goods being now nearly exhausted pi-ice of botii.VVaollfcrtanJ Cottnn fabrics will advance indeed, they have advanced in New York 15 to 20 per cent liut the greatest injury of u.c i miner i not in we ennanceo .value 01 goous; they are still lower than they were previous 10 the Tariff. The Planters fee it most ia the balance of trade with Great Britain and other countries. If we do not take in exchange their Produce or Manufactures for ours, we must sell ouy Cotton and other produce to them for; cosfl, whiih has, and will continue' reduce the rale of Exchange our Ex.-ports being greatet than our Imports. Great Britain and France must have our Cotton, and if we do not tajte their manufactures in payment they must pay for it in cash, and the. planter will have to bear all the expenses of its transportation to the United States: for the price will be taken off the Cotton and other produce, to cover those cuarges: or what is equivalent, the rate of Exchange will be reduced so as to cover them. - Withiu the last vear exchange has gone dowp 5 percent, equal to a "half cent on upland motion; anu 1 nave no Hesitation in saying, that in another year, it will go down S per cent, and continue until specie can be sent to the V. States on better terms than to aegotiateon England or Fiance. - - - . .- .. . Should Cotton conti noe to advance in Europe the advocates of the Tariff may attempt to argue, that 11 nas no oao eiiect on prices: ims rise, II any, will only prove, that the European manufactories cannot do without the article; and could it be obtained from any other country on better terms, the United States .would not receive their custom. The advance does not prove that the Tariff hat no evil tendency.. The difference of exchange will still be paid by the cultivator, and the higher the price of produce, the larger will be the amount ol exports, end the. greater will be the difficulty to receive payments while foreign manufactures are excluded by protecting duties.- r .. . ; t . . Our dotes of the 3d August from Liverpool, advise the Cotton Market as remaining steady. The tales of the previous week were not so extensive, but prices fully supported ; quotations foi Uplands, 6jd a At these prices, thipments could not be made with the present rale of Exchange, to. save above 10 a l'i at in quality.; From the disturbed state ot France, but little had been done in the Havre Market. Prices, however, had been fully sustained and even tome n.all advances spoken of. v , " The sales with us of the new crop, have been entirely confined to Agents for the Northern Spinners and Dealers, at prices loo high to warrant shipaienti to Liverpool with hope of saving ; -'. From every view I can take of the prospects before us for the ensuing year, I am led to the conclu sion, that prices tor Upland Cotton will range from lOlo 12 cents as in quality. Speculators may at timet advance the Liverpool Market, but a withdrawal of the consumers from' it will bring prices down, to as to render shipments extremely hazardous above those rates.-'-. . . ; ; v ' , This, however, it only my individual opinion, and my friends are as able on this subject, to form at correct ideas os myself.
