THE CLOs. Or THE VoLUM.-The
'present numtber -completes the 4th Volume
"of ihe Edgeflield Advertiser. We return
our sincere thanks to those putictual sub
scribers, who have taken our paper for
some years past. We ha-ve labored 'un
ceasingly for their edifleation and amuse
-ment, and we hope not altogether in vain.
We have furnished them, in our columns,
with many good State Rights documents
and speeches, Agricultural essa-ys, 'selec
-tions of foreign and domestic new's, mis-.
cellatieous articles. communication's n all
sorts of subjects. and last and least of all,
'our own editorials. We are grarefal 'for
'former patronage, (as the'inerchants ray,)
-and hope for a comt inuance of the saie.
To that numerous class, % ho. so far a
we arc concerned, have suspended specie
payments, bank note payments, skin plaster
payments, pgyment it their own riotcs. 6r
any kind ofpayAents, *hat shall we say ?
The argument with them, is almost ex
:hausted. We have appealed to then.,
entreated them,-coaxed them; we have
done every thing, but threatened them.
Doubtless. many of them say, " It is vast
3y indelicate in you, Mr. editor, to he con
tioually aiviii such broad hints to yOur
subscribers ! We will cease to take your
.paper, if you dont mend your manners !"
We admit that there is some indeteccy in
asking payment of money due. Bat our
-ereditors waive all ceremony with regard
to us. and we must do likenise, towards
'our debtors. If these last mentioned per
s'mns will now pay the several sums, which
they owe us, we will, like good Christians,
forgive them for their past offentces to
wards us, and will cheerfulfy commence

The Conmpt roller Genei-a's tnotice to) the
Tax Collectors and other officers, int rela
tiont to thte kind of monmey, to he received
in paymetnt of Tax'es, we understand has
produced sotre excitement in the 'commt
mity. The clause of the Tax Act of thle
labt session, requiting the taxes to lbe paid
" in specie, paper meditimt, 'o- the hnotes of
specie paying bac~ks, of this state," is j'ult
the same as lhas been in every tax act for the
last twenty years; and a isomnent's reflec
tion will satisfy any one, thtat a majority
of the Hlotts of Represtatatives, cubiid hot
contsistently htave votedl to dis.pense with
'such a r' qutisitionznow. That 'i-ach oif

unanitmiity, a bill to cotmpel lh'e suspeunded

We understand also, tifat some misap
prehentsiont exists, in relation to the tax on
Jltnds. Some suppose that the tax of "30
cents ad valorem, ott every httn-'re dollars
of the value of all landus t"ranted ini this
State,"' is a tax of I0 c'ent. on every htun
tired dollars of the real vatlue. But those
who put suc'h a construtctiotn upont the act,
entirely forget that int 1815, atn act wvas

and thast the tax imposed, is itt referetnce to

GENEIAL HARRISON ON SLAVJa.-As
much has been said about i he opinions of
(jeneirAl lIlarri-1n1, on Slavery. we have
thought it but jut to make the,11'lowing
extract from an Address delivered by him,
t Vincennes, Indiana, two years since.
With regard to the present relations (if

The Chole-4.n Courier, an Administra

f.m the'question of slavery. But h1is o)in
ions on top subject, generally, if he has not
been mi'sr.-ireseau-d, are far froi being
1 insist that if the citizens of tlie 'n'n
slave-holding 'taaes can avail themselves
of the article of the Constitution, which
prohibits the restriction of speech, or the
press to publish any thin::, injurious to the
rights .f the Slaveholding States, that
they can go to the extreme that I have
mention.i, and effect any thintg further
which writing or speaking could effect.
But, fellow-citizens, these are not the prin
cipies of the , Constiution. Such a con.
struction would defeat ione of the great
objects of its formatsion, which was that of
securing the pence and harmony of the
States, which vere'parties to it. The lih
erty of speeeb and of the press, were given
as the most efflctual nienns to preserve to
eah and 'everv citizen their.bwn rights,
and t.) the States, the rights which apper
tained to then, at the time of their adop

that it would he used by the citizens of one
portion of the States, for the pirpoze of
depriving ihose c'f ani'her p6rtion, of the
rights which thev had reserved at the a

any concein or interesi. If slavery is an
evil, the evil is n% ith rhen. If there is
Euilt in it, the guilt it theirs, 6ot'hurs,'since
neither the States where it does not exist.

done by the force of public opinion, arid
that cantiot too soon be brought into ope

by the abolitionaists in the non-slaveholdiig
