EDGEFIE LD C. 11.
TrtunsDaY, AYa 10. 1838s.
We publish to-day several items in rela
tion to the Charleston fire. It will be seen
that this distressing calamiity haP excited an
extensive atid deep-felt sympathy. Mfany
of our neighiboring towns and villages have
already given earnest of their sincere sor
row, by making handsome pe'eunmary dona
tions for the benefit of the sufferers, and
among these we cannot omnitto mention
Wilmington N. Car-olina, Augusta, and
Columbia. The last Columbia papers in
form its that that town has contributed the
liberal sum of upwards of $9000.
The very commendable zeal which this
latter place has manifested for the resusci
'tation of our once fair city, now in ruins,
wsill find, we tust, a most hearty response
throughout the up-country. The burning
of Charleston is a great public calamity.
It is not all, that hundreds and thousands
wvho but yesterday enjoyed the comforts of
opulence, are now robbed by the devouring
- element of every thuing; that widlows antd
orphans, pinched by chill penury, now
crowd the once busy and prosperous streets,
to ask the charity of the passing stranger
who may visit the scenieof desolation. This
is sufficient, more than sufficient to impress
--the hearts of the charitable and benevolent.
It is not the call of a heartless city upon
others to support their miserable and desti
tute, lint the call of a community now al
- most powerless in its resources, fromn no
--fatbit of its own, and whose whole history
is rich in'acts of beneficence. Charleston,
to her honor ho it said, is pre-eminent in
lier works of charity. No city, we believe,
in the world of her size, takes better care of
her poor aind necdy, and these are sutpported
by the voluntary contributions of her citi
But we have said that this is a public
catamity. Will it not be so regarded by the
citizens of the State from the sea-board to
tl mountainti! From the day when the
gallant Moultrie repulsed the invaders of our
soil, and earned for S. Carolina, in his de
fence of Charlestou, one ofthe proudest lau
rels in out revolutionary history, what true
son of the State has not rejoiced in her grow
ing greatnesa and importance! Whose hcart
does not beat with gladness at the recollec
tion of a Laurens, a Rutledge, a Gadsden,
a Pinckney and others! How large a chap
ter she fills in the history of our State!
There are associations numerous and varied,
which come to all with a power which --at
not be resisted; which make ever& citizen
claim Charleston as his own, his cherished
city. Advancing in her career of prosperity
with a rapidity hitherto unknown in her
history, with the energies of her citizens
concentrated upon the important enterprize
ofa direct trade with Europe and the whole
world, thus freeing the South from the com
mercial thraldon under which she had so
long labored, she is suddenly arrested by
the calamitous visitation which we have
recorded. In this point of view, the blow
falls heavily upon every citizen of the State.
To open a new channel of trade, nd to
produce a great commercial diversion, is at
all times a work of herculean labor and dif
ficulty, requiring large capital and uncom
mon energy and enterprize. This is iar
ticularly the case in regard to the great
scheme of which we now speak. Most of
the Southern States are moving in the ttat
ter, but it is a fact that upon Charleston,
from her position, depends uore than upon
any other point. In a work so essentially
Southicro, we would not take the positon
that if Accomplished, to Charleston alone
must be accorded the glory. No-alone
she could do nothin,; but without her co
operation. the enterprize will fail. She is
now in ashes. A large portion of that ca
pital which would have been directed to
this object is now lost, and the people-the
State-must take the matter in hand.
What can be done, is the question. It has
been suggested that the State should loan
its credit; that it borrow the required a
mount, and loan to every person desirous to
rebuild, one half the value of the lot, on a
mortgage of the property and insurance,
with interest; and to secure the State a
gainst any chance of loss, the City corpo
ration should bind itself to indema.ily. It
is also suggested, is a further security, that
the edifices should be of brick or stone, as
then they would be placed beyond the reach
of fire. For ourselves, we see no reasona
ble oljection to this mode of relief. That
it is a wrong principlefor individuals to look
to Legislatures for a relief from their pecu
niary distresses is true we admit, but we see
nothing dangerous and nothing wrong in
extending it in the present instance. It is,
we say againa, a pablic calamity, and in all
simailar cases it is thte part of wisdomt and
policy in Legislatures to do it. T1he State
would be a gaianer by it, and does it becomae
it to sacrifice its dearest inaterent and that of
hter whtole citizens, utpon a maere abstractiona?
There is nao possible dager of loss, and a
restoring the broken fortunies or her chief
city, she contributes to the solid prosperity
.if her etire people. Assured as woihave
been that this is the only plau whicha promai
ses relief, we are sincerely anaxious if notne
better can lie dlevised, :hat it succeed. We
have given it in our p~aper that it may re
ceive the sober reflectiotn of our readers,
and we believe that it will commisend itself

TlE FIRST OlP MAY.
The day came in beatifully. The hea
vens were bright and cloudless, and gentle
zephyrs wafted the perfume of flowers from
varions gardens al the surroundingw forests.
A genial warmth was difFused abroad, and
excited such pleasurable feelings, that ttere
existence was a luxury. All appeared to
be animated by one kindly feeling. Ma
trons were busily engaged in preparing de
licious cates for the palate, while on all sides
were tripping their lovely daughters, gath
ering verdant boughs, and culling the sweet
est flowers. These they carried to the place
selected for the annual festival of young
maidens. In the spacious garden of Mrs.
11. a throne, enwreathed with flowers and
surrounded by green branches, was erected.
Graceful trees spiread their shade over the
spot, and roses & jionquils bloomed around.
At t little distance was an elevated stand for
the tmsicians. '1Two lovely young ladies
p)resided over the piano and guitar, while
the harp was touched by the fingers of an
accomaplishied mtatront. Somte young gen
tlemen ptlayed out the flute and violin, wvhich
greatly added to the harmonty of the occa
sioni. As the (lay dleclined, the sky was
ove'rcast, and the freshening 'orcezes which
agitated thte branches of the trees, gave in
dications of an imtpending storm. 13Ut soon
after the stan had shed his lust bright beam,
the air wits still. Twilight sucetded with
a softened gloom, and the stars shone out
w ith unwonted brilliance. Chandeliers and
festoonod lamps suspiendedl in various parts
of the garden, diffused a tempered splen
dour fatr around.
The fleratld ttow approaches, hearing a
lofty May pole encircled with varie-colored
flowers. She announces the ap~proacht of
the Queen, and the tmusicians play atn etn
livening tmarch. A trop of smtiling young
virgints succeeds, dressed ini a style most
suitabtle antd tasteful. Auid nlow conmes Flo
ra, ther Qtueen of the Flowers, with her at
tenaltnts. Shte tuakes a short address, atnd
thietn the Qtueetn of May, accompanied by
her beautiful Prime Minister and Maids of
linnor, ascends te thtrone.
Music's soft notes now fill the air. There
is a pa~use. The Primie Minister addresses
the Qnmeent, and places otn her brow a crown
of flowers. The Queen reslumnds ia a grace
fuil mnantner,and thetn fills her verdantt thtrne.
All countteniances are now lighted upl with
joy. A t a suitable hour, the Royal Majesty
repairs to a magnificent entertainmient. A

Bright, glorious Summer o'er the earth
Ditlused her warmth, and frolic mirth
Attendant ever on her train,
Far banished care, and want and pain.
A smiling face all Nature w'ore,
The flow're their sweets exhaled once more.
The plumaged inmates of the wood,
Sung as they sought their simple food.
The lower tribes partook the joy,
Which seemed to L without alloy.
But this was not-%% ith raging thirst,
And burning heat, the earth was cursed.
Summer departed-Autumn came
Her sister, and sel looked the same.
The husbandman now saw his toil
Rewarded by thie yielding soil.
Delicious fruits the season crowned,
And plenty was diffused around.
All blissful seemed-=but soon came woe;
Disease laid many a lov.d one low.
And now 'tis Winter's gloomy reign,
Earth's locked up by her icy chain.
No more the cooling Zephyr's blow,
The purling brooks no longer flow.
Hushed are the warbler's tuneful throats,
On air no more the music floats.
'Tis gloom prolouud-all Nature's dead;
Hope seems from earth forever fled!
But hark! what sound salutes my car!
'Tis thepirst warbler of the year.

My heart o'erflows, I cannot say
What bliss has crown'd me on this day!
Welcome my subjects to my sight!
To see you is the Queen's delight!
I thank you for the love you've shown;
May I prove worthy of my throne!
Preeminence I would not claim
O'er my lov'd sisters, they're the same,
In rank with me; each fills her throne,
And reigns a mighty Queen alone.

Fair youthful Queens the sceptre swvay,
And all the williug homage pay.

A land where ne'er stern Winter's gloom
Is felt, a youthful Princess reigns;
There spriug smiles o'er her hills, her plains.
In the cold regions of the North,
I see a Queen step prouadly forth;
Youth, beauty ou her steps await,
And love and joy appear her fate.
In the broad space of Britain's isle,
O'er ev'ry brow there breaks a smile;
All tongues her youth, her worth proclaim,
All shout Victoria's honored name.

IIE Proprietor of this Establishtment
gives notie, that he is repairing and
fitting it u) at considerable expense, and in
a superior style,and will have it ready forthe
reception of company by the 20th of May.
It is situated on the great Eastern and Vest
ern Lino of Stages, from Salisbury via.
Lincolnton to Ashoville, &c. (a stage pass
mng there every day in the week but one).
The country around is broken and prover
bially healthy, and besides the mineral
properties of the wuter. there are many in
ducements to turn the attention of invalids
and others towards this place. Its prox
imity to the lower country-the cheapness
of iving-the excellence of the neighboring
society-the abundance of game, an. the
rich field aff'orded to science, especially to
mineralogy and botany, are facts not to be
overlooked by the'travelling world. But
it is in the mineral qualities of the Springs
that the great attraction to this spot consists.
The proprietor has no exaggerated lists of
cures to present to the public, for he has
just taken possession, nor would he deem
it a compliment either to the good taste or
sagacity of the public, to present such if he
had them. But he has the assurance of some
of the most scientific physicians and chom
ists, to the raro and valuale properties
of these Springs. In 1824, Professor Olm
sted, (now of Yale College) made a strict
analysis of this water, anId pronounces its
foreign ingredient s to be : Suiphuretted H y~
