the Grain crop.-For several days (it
ring the past week, the weather was bright
and warm and the sky was scarcely over
cast by a cloud. The season was highly
favorable for cutting grain. In several sec
tions ofraountry which we have recently
Been, the fields-give-promise of an abun
dant harvest of wheat and nats, We hope
that the farmers will not be disappointed.
In some places rust has attacked the graiin

grain in this, and may adjoining sections.

*the great injury nvhich the late frosts did
to the fruit. We are pleased to say that
-the damnge done, was not so great as we
supposed. From our own observation,
We rdsey -that the yield-of-fruit, will be
plentiful in many sections.

are much needed in Georgia. li no-South

making greater efforts to advance their
cause. In none do they use -more unscra
pulous menns, to overthrow the-principles.
It is with no small surprise that we observe
the increasing zeal and activity of the few sup
-porters of Harrison in this part of the State.
They shew an energy and perseverance worthy
of a better man, and more suited to a better
cause. It is true, that thet is no heresy in
politics or morals; no cduse, however perni
cious in its tendency, but Nvhat has found -its.
supporters among the ignorant, or the discon
'tented seeking gain by a change of principles.
But that there should be men, intelligent men.
in South Carolina, who were nurtured upon
her soil, and should have imbibed a love for her
interest~and institutions, now yieling their sup.
.port, and rendering their allegiance to Hlarri
-son, is a matter of' no small astonishment to tus
W~uhat is the cause that Harrison has become so
-suddenly, the object of all their political aflfec
tions, and the sole idol of~ their public adora
tions ? "' Upon wvhat meet doth this man feed,
-that he has grownm so great ?'' Is he supported
'by them, because he is identified wpith 'adil sits
tained by a coalition of parties, hostile to the in
!terest of the South, and wagitng wvar upon her
ihslittitionsl Or have they bee dite dissatisfied.
with the ancient doctritnes andi prmnciples of the
State, which they were once wont to honor
and revere ? Whatevei- mayv be the mnotive fcr
-their present course, it is certain, that as new
'recruits, they are now fairly enlis4ted under-the
motley flag, which Harrison has "raised at the
head of the colttmn."
Let us see of what materials t'bis formidable
"column" is composed ; of wvhich, the leader of'
the -Federalists, Mr. Webster, lately so proudly
boasted. 'The first in place, and first in the af
fections -6f'thiir Chief, are the Abolitionists,
formidible-in untinhers, aud-dangerous in fanat i.

to an Abolition Society, at the tender and in

still true to his first Icove; -and has recenitly
given 4rndubitable pledges,'of hie de-votion aind

Dear" Sir:-Ii has suited the puirpose of
some-of your opponents in this District, to
circulate the suspicion, with the view of
prejudiciiigfou in public opinion, that you
are secretly in favor of Ceneral Harrison
for the Presidency and consequently op
posed to Mr. Van Buren, and to the fIa
vorite measure of his administration with
the state, an Independent Treasury. I am
persuaded that a systematic elort will be
made through the public press, or other
wise, to connect you with the Harrisnn par
ty andel especially to excite public preju
dice and opposition by the false and un
generous insinnation that you are inclined
to favor the "Preston faction" in opposi
lion to Mr. Calhoun. Believing that these
surmises are utterly utnfounded and thai
they have been fabricated and circulated
for party-effect, I have taken the liberty of
addressitng this curnintie:ttaion to yot, tlt
to have anly donts of my own remloved.
bit.dhat.yon may have an opportipity Of
placing youir true opinionis in relation to
public tmie and Measures, before the entun
try. I have always understood that you
were a zealous suppnrter of the Sub Trea
sury hill, as imodified by Mr. Calhoui, and
that in the present division of parties, you
preflerred Mr. Van lluren for the-presiden
ev. over the noninee of the irricburg
Coneiiion, whose politics are at least
doubtful in relation to several measures of
vital interest to the South, on which the
present adninistration is with its. I have
suposed that you, like myself, have felt
that von coul naintain the relations of
private friendship and social intercourse
with old and cherished acquaintances
such as Col. Preston, with whom we now
differ upon an essential measure of reform,
withotit'the slightest abatetnetit'of devo
tion to your political creed,or tle least Con
promise of ptiblic duty. That while you
are prepared to give to Mr. Van :Buren
and to the leading measures'of his admin
istration. your cheerful and firm 9upport,
you-.lo not feel any political obligation ti
sacrifice younr private friendship -upon the
altir ofihe intolerant dlemon-of party. If

Dear Sir:-Your letter of the 25th tit.
reached me only this eveising, and I sit
down to answer-it at once. I cannot -en
press the sentiments I -entertain on-the su h
jects to whieb.you refer, so 'wll as yout
have done it for nie. We have been so
liitle accustomed of late years,to any seri
ons discussion and division on the Presi
dential question in S. Carolina, that I hard
ly ex'pecced to hear it suggested as a test in
any election in our State. I have never,
hoiveVer,'besitateil'to expiress my opinion
on the subject. 'I ~con'fess that Ir. Van
Buren has agreeably clisappointed ne in
the firmness and consistency with which
he has administered the Go'vernnent aid
that his leading measures so 'far, havePnet
mny cordial aptproblation. Without pledg
itg mtyself to atny todiscritminate suipport
of his Adiniistratiott, I have nto hesitation
now, in sayinrg that I prefer hiim to Genm.
liarrisotn, uponi every grottnd, and am
uder existinig circumtstancees, in favor of
his re-election. ..
I have always been atn adv'ocate of thte
[idepjendent Treasury, with 'tibe specie fen
ture, and of a very thorough reform in the
present banking system. which having
served its timte atnd growno into a most dis
astrotus abtuse, should be replac'ed by some
safer organization of credit.
As regards Mr. Carhoun, no-interruption
whateyer lhas occurred in our personal-Or
political intercourse since 1 first entered
public life. WithCol. Preston., 1 havelta-d
no piolitical ecommunicalion for .three or
foutr years,. and during that 1ieriod have
rarely 'met liim. I enitert in for him per
sonally, however, the sentiments I always
did, and it will not he tmy faut if otur social
relations (do not 'continue the sanme as here
tofore. With re'gatrd to "ot lhers" who may
come' under thte dlenomninationi of the "Pres

ntever yet yielded upI a private frie rnds hip
for political differences dione, atnd I do not
emtitem plate dcintg so brt*any consideration
which public lire can ofIer.

was atwaked by a call for aissistance to
remtove the slaves and property from the
ferrv, (Hlariksdale's Ferry,) aissistanlce was
itmt'iediately sentt and as soon as conv'e
nienit I went downw to the water. The

hills in'Cbrolina to the bills in 'Georgia
was one vast sheet of water, near a mile
in extent : horses Could bo seen going
down, fodder stacIs, strings of fence, cows
and calves, every 'hin; which came in the
way, wereswept offby theitnighty current.
Even Chanticleer wvith al, his progeny, not
being web footed.'perched theimselves up
on the topsof the h6*uses, hidding a hasty
adieu to their endearel home, as they
were borne off by the current to visit new
climes and seek new homes. The Ferry
flat (n hich was saved only by the vigilance
of the ferryman) having matde on.e trip to
the hifls, could then; be se en in the distance
"bult ing the-waves on its.errand of mercy.
TorttinaMily 'no livss were lost at thi< place
lbut all ele except two hiuses were swept
arvay. The dwelling, being.stpported by
its chimney, and another log house, which
stood just in its wake, remain as witnes
ses that the pliace was once a settletment.
The water continued to rise rapidly until
near suni-down, hugging the hills, exten
ding tup creeks and branches for miles,
covering every foot of land which deser
ved the nIme of low grounds. Never
since the pale faces cbmncttted cutting
down the deer thickets, has the Savannah
known such a rise. Notahle as was the
Yazoo fresh, about 46 years ago, :his fresh
at thin place was two feet higher, at other
places more, and the current undoubtedly
tutich stronger. Trees which had stood
the stortns for more than fifty years were
torn iltp by the roots ind carried off. It
seetned iht the God of the waters revelled
in the desolation which marked his foot
steps. Severil eribstf corn which had
been put ttp in Ihe fields were carried off.
Some plantations were swept of their
houses, provisions. every I hing. One farni
ly of 7 or 8 whites at Fergusoi's ferry
were carried oil. and all -drowned e.cept
one or two.' Great as was the apprehen
siwi of injury done to the pnntations, yet
it fell far short f tlie-real damage. Now
that the vaters have reseded, the planta

letter to the Citizens of Charleston, in
which lie underakeso'.fiake ain assei'tiou
about Virginia, that the Voice of the Peo
ple will not sanction. "'You, fellow-citi
zen', 'says he.)' have declared vour opin
ion, that the re-election of'Mr.'Van Buren
is expedient for this great interest, (South
ern Institutions.) Other citizens ofCharles
ton think otletise. The great slave
holding Slute of Virgitia-hasiin -the-most
emphatic way. declared that she thinks
otherwise." The State -of 'Virginia has
niade no such decluFation. The majti'ity
of the poplilar vnte at the lIist election,
thutaghi iven undomr every sortof iniug,
which the Whigs could master tp, and
while ot' large 'counties did not at all
come out in their strengh, wasiT 'favor of
the Administration. In November nex,
it Will swell to thousands. lhow, in fact,
can Mr. Preston expect; that Virginia can
go'h-gainst Mr. 'Van Buren, in 'relation to
Insitutions, wifen he is tolemnily pledged
(and gaitn in iliecourse of this very month,
in black and white) to vetiamy bill which
may trench upon those Institutions-and
when Gen. 11'. expressly declres, that lie
will give tio such pledge to friend or lbe?
Does Mr. Preston think that Virginia is so
infatunted, that she will forsake the man
who gives her the most unqualified pledge
uf support, in order to elect a inan who
will give no such pledge? If he wig, utin
tIer such circumstances, give Gen. II. the
"generous confidence" which his "Con

of Virginia-are rather too considerate to
