that the "American System," was pro

loving Cato, of toy devotion to that sacred
instrument. "Cato" admrits that "over
things imported a State may ins'itute reg
ulation." What "Cato" miteans by the
elegant phrase "institute regulation" I am
unable to comprehend; since it is one not
to be found in the law books, or in the Con
stitution. But this "regulation" lie tells
us is not to proceed to "prohibition."
Has the intelligence ever reached -Ein
met Lodee" that the people of South Car
olina in 1835 by an Act or Assembly. im
posed a tax nf one thousand dollars on
hlawkers and Pedlars? Does breaking up
a trade amount to "prohibition?" If so
we have by express Law "llrohiaited"
Pedlars from "selling or exposing to sale
any goods wares or merchandize" whether
"imported" or not. Ani our Courts have
never qniestioned the constitutionality of
this Law. I will not quarrel with "Cato"
about terms; hut shall simply proceed to
show the incidents appertaminn to the
"instituted regulation" of which lie speaks.
First, then the People of South Carolina
have a right to regulate the place and
manner in which one shall dispose of his
Merchandize. This is illustrated by the
case of the Pedlar already cited. That
they have a right to define the quantity
is liklewise manifest front an existing, law
in relation to retailers themselves; "Cato"
mey possibly know from experience, that
a retailer cannot recover for a less quantity
of likor titan a quart. That we have
a right to prescribe the person is equally
clear it being a penal off'ence in this
State for any one to trale with a slave.
Upon the constitutionality of these laws
our Courts have already decided.
But "Cato" still insists -that there is no
constitutional right in prohibit the sale
of anv article of commerce in which there
is capital nui labor." Ift lie sapient "Cato"
will turn to the 23d pane of the Acts of
Assembly of 1S20 lie will fild that South
Carolina" has -,prohibited" the introduction
or circulation of any hooks or pamliets"
calcnlated "to disturb the peace or securi
ty" of her citizens. I would like to lie in
.irnied by one so learned in tne Law as
"Cato" surely is, since he has undertaken
to instruct our Legislators. w hether books
and pamphldets are -'articles of commerce in
which there is capital and labor?"
But I have wasted too much time al
ready, upon the rodomantade of this va
poring scribbler. Nothing, as I before said,
but the considernion. that some, even more
ignorant than -Cato," himself, might be
iifluenced by his unmeaning jargon about
liberty and laws, would ever have induced
me to notice so silly a production. Whilst
we are discussing lie propriety of alter
ing or repealing a law already upon our
statute hook, "Cato" is rating about
constitutions & commerce. I believe that
we, the citi:ens of S. Carolina are freemen.
I helieve.("Cato's" opinion to the contra
ry, notwit list anding.) that we noto possess
the righi of making such laws as wce seefit,
for our own government, and that when we
lose this right we will cease to befreemen!
If, then. the people of S. Carolina choose
to alter, or repeal the present license laws,
or any other law upon their statute book,
I can not perceive that they are doing
more than, as freemen, they have a right to
to do. EDGEFIELD.

Indians.-On Wednesday last. Mr. Jo

county, who resides about four miles fron
the Sanday Ford in Jefferson county,
while going to superinted his negroes at
work, was attacked by a paty of Indians
supposed to lie about a dozen, who fired
upon him. Mr. Lee was shot through the
body. but we are gratified to leran, will
recover. lie was armed nt the time of
the attack, mnd gillantly returned ithe fire,
and although hadly hmrt, was enal.ded io
get on his horse and ride for aid. His
negroes fled home immediately, except
one valtiable slave, that is yet missing.
Criev were henril as the oiers retre.ited,
which indtces the belie that the slave was
probably overtaken by the Indians and
shot. Several citizens rallied as soon as
possible, and atarted in search of the In
dianus. They found the gin house of Mr.
Andrew J. Lee had been set on fire and
about fort y hales ofcotton destroyed The
