ftarThe late election of Hon. JAMES CHES
XII, as United States Senator in South Caro
lina, is stated by the Charleston News to have
been a decided triumph of the conservative sen
timent in that State. The News says : " Mr.
CJIKSNUT before election clearly and frankly de
fined his political position in response to con
versational inquiry. It was, in brief, that he
was a State-rights, anti-Convention, and anti
slave trade man. lie endorsed in the main,
lie Barnwell speech of Senator II AMMOND, and
the personal and political relations of these
! gentlemen place them in the fullest and most
salutary accord as colleagues. Mr. CHESNUT is
t in the prime of life, with ample margin of age
i for study, trainiug, as a statesman. lie has a
| clear and sagacious mind, even temperament
! and manner, firm and high spirit, and combines
| conservatism with decision. To a sufficient
readiness in debate he adds clear logic and
calm discernment. The purport of this Sena
torial election cannot be mistaken. It sustained
State-rights. It absolutely condemned the ag
itation of the slave-trade question. It indica
ted the policy that the people of the State
should not merge in any party ; but, when ad
visable, should co-operate as allies, not parti
zans, with the Democratic party of the South,

would receive the confiding support of his

one of the most finished and able lecturers of the

unnecessary. We can assure every one that
