fourth Alonday in.Noveniber ; and a gene
ral invitation has been given to the citizens
of thesStatc, to send Delegates to the Con
vention. from each District in the State.
i the propriety and utility of the Conven
tion, there has been a general concurrence
of opinion throughout the State, and many
of the Districts. have already de'monstrated
the deep interest which they take in the
matter, by holding public meetings and
It has not hitherto been the practice of
Edgefield, to be behind her sister Districts,
in giving demonstrations of the willingness
of her citizens, faithfully to perform all the
claims and duties which mav belong either
to a sense of high public spirit, or to an en
larged patriotism. It will not become her
past character, to lag behind her sisters at
the present time. I trust that every plan
ter in the District, will feel that lie has a
personal interest in this Convention, and
that tinder the influence of this feeling, a
general assemblage will take place in the
Court House, on Tuesday of Court, im
mediately after the adjournment of the
Court. to select a suitable number of De
legates to represent this District. The
various considerations, which recommend
this Convention, and the important results,
which may be the fruit of its labors, can
not fail to occur to the mind of every one,
upon the slightest reflec'tion. In the first
place, it is the first Convention of Plan:ers,
that has been called within ithe State,
since theRevoluttion,of which we ha% e any
recollection. We have held Free Trade
Conventions and State Rights' Corven
tions for the purpose of asserting and vindi
cating the political rights of the people.
We have had frequent Professionil Con
ventions or Associations to extend the
limits, and to promote the interesting
cause of science in both law and medicine ;
yet Agriculture, which is the Ibster-mother
-the Great Arch, and very Key-stone
upon which all other interests and pur
suits depend, and upon which alone they
- can have life and being, has been shame
fully neglected. The expediency, nay al
most necessity of such a Convention, at
the present juncture, must lte obvious to
all, and it would be little short of a waste
of time, to resort to the use of arguments
to recommend it. It is universally con
ceeded, that Agriculture, the oldect and
most essential employment of manit, is the
paramount interest of civil society, and
thi by her labors are supplied all the di
vcrsificd materials, which engage and sus
tain the various departments of life. The
-Earth is the fruitful matrix of all vecget
able, and the kind and bountiful supporter
of all animal existence. It is the final
resting place of all matter, whether it ex
ists in organic or unorganic forms. It is,
therefor6,-an interestin'g branch of know
lede, which teaches the proper use and
treatment of the Earth, and the various
modes by which its fertility and productive
ness may be not only preserved, but ii
creased. It is a melancholy fact, that
gross ignirance trevails anong all ranki.
and conditionis of men upon all the~ prinei
Iles of Agriculture, w'hethier consieired in
the light of an atrt, or sciencc. Thue likre
igntorance prevails in relatin to the sim-*
ple element~ary principles of ihe Earit,and
to their modes of furni~hinig food, to platnts
in their variouts combinatins. In fact,
vegetable physiology is as little understuotd
amrong the butlk of agricutlturists, as ihe
laws and principles of the sublime science
of Astronomy. They look upotn the stur
fa'ce of the Earth, atnd its vegetable pheno
mnena, with the same wtonder and want of
comprehension with whlich they contem
plate the starry hceavens and their periodi
cal changes. In view of this state of
things, much good toay be expectedi to
suceceedi the labors of the Conivention.
Among the most prominent benefits may
be the followinig:
It may lead to a geological sturvey of the
State-to a discovery of its mineral re
soutrces-to ant analysis of its various
earths, and to imiproved modes of fertiliza
tion and cuiltivation of the soil. It may
create a pervading feeling of inerest
among the planters uipon the subject ;ni ma
lead to the formration of Agricultural So
cieties throuighout the State-to the en
couragement of Agriculitural Papers, and
to the diffusion of general and useful in
formatfion through them :and oilier modes
of communnicating the interesting results
of investigation and experiment. Such
are some of the fruits of the aniicipated
Convention, suflciemt at least to commietnd
it to our favorable consideration, and to
induce us to unite our efforts in the good
cauise by sending Delegates from our Dis

Mr.. E ditor.
Yesterday morning at broad daylight,
moy hands, (20 in ntumber). entered the
cotton field. Th'le result at itight, weiebed
by my overseer, in the presense of Mr [1.
and myself, was 3,:302 pioundts ntet cotton
.--an average of l10) pound3 per hand.
It may, perhaps, not be amniss to statte,
that onte of mny rery best hantds (reported
sick) did not pick. Five hanids were un

The premitum wvas a gallon of whiskey,
a~da poundl of tobacco. The oficers oft

And I will venture to say, no two Indians
ever acted with more caution, in the selee
tions of their combatants for a bullplay,
than did these two sable generals.
I visited the field about sun rise. The
generak surrounded by their own soldiers,
bad posted themselves on opposite sides of
the field. I could hear not a word, save*
now and then issuine fron the mouth of
one of the Cummanders-in- Chief, a Bend

was weighed and stored away in perfect
silence, and breattless anxiety. After
which, the prize was given to lucke
John, and his " brave boys,".in the'midst
of shouts, hurrahl, hallooing, singing, and.
dancing ; while mortification and di,trss
seemed depicted tn the co4utenances of
the vanquished party.

li the life and character of this exem

inenber, to admire, and to imitate. Al
though somewhat retiring and taciturn in
his intercourse with society, the sterling
qnalities of both his head and heart failed
not to tmake a favorable and lasting in
pression upon his arquaintances. and to
secure for him their cordial and confiding
resp'.ct while living, and their unfeigned
regret for his death. In the various reIn
tionsof private life, his conduct was exem

just and upright ; as a friend. sincere and
disinterested ; as a son, dutifil and a!Tee
tiotiate; as a neighbor. kind and conci
liating; as a citizen, f;ithlful and patrio

lustrated, in his dealings with society. the
truth of the moral sentiment, that an
" Honest man is the noblest work ol

quirements of the important maxim and
