EDGEFIELD C. 11
THtURst)AY. AUGUST 6, 1840.
We have now coImenced the 27th Number
of our paper, and take this opportunity, as a boy
writing a letter would say, to infovrn our pa
trons, young and old, rich and poor. male and
female. and all without exception. that we re
quire, their assistance. In plain words, WE
WANT MONEY! Bread is the staff of life,
but monev is the soul of business, and we can
not go on without it. We earnestly tequest
all our friends who are indebted to ns, for ad
vertising. job-work or subscription, to pay us
that we may pay others. Six months of the
present. volume, have now elapsed and many
have not yet complied with our terms. If they
will pay us shortly. we will not enforce a rigid
exaction or our published ternis; but if they do
not. weshall be compelted to resort to this step.
'Many have not paid us for years; some have
never paid us a copper, and probabl nerer trill.
We again entreat all such. to hand us the
several amounts which they owe us. otherwise
we may inflict npon then, the most sumnary
pumshinent- we may erase their namesfrom our
subscription book. We teturn our heart-relt
thanks to all those who have paid us promptly
either inadvaice. or a short time after the coin
meneement of the volume. A thousand thanks
and a thousand 3ears of life. to all these good
fellows. By such. mir era't flonrisheth. May
they increase and multiply on this goodly earth.
We ca!l attetion to the followiig extract frotn
a letter written by the Post Master General:
"A Postmaster may enclose money to 'he
Publisher of a Newspaper. to pay the sub
scription of a third person, and Frank the
letter if written by himsrlf."
Whenever a pav ent for subscription is
made. it will he acknowledged in our paper.
within a short time aft-rwards. If we stould
inadvertently neglect to (o so, we beg our pa
trons, to remind us of it.
We are reqnested to state that Mr. Palnwr
will deliver a lecture on Tenperance. iii the
Baptist Meeting ilonse oif this place, tiis eve
ning at early candle-light. The community
are invited to attend.
We are indebted to the llon. F. W. Pickens
for a copy of the speech of Mr. Clay, of Ala.,
on the motion of Mr. Roanie, to print 20,000
copies of the Report of the Connittee on the
Congress adjourned on the 21st tilt., agreca.
bly to resolution.
A pretty present.-We have received from a
lady in this place, some peaches of a delicious
flavor. We tender to her our thanks for this
appropriate present. We love a generous and
a cheerful giver, especially, one of the gentler
Rain.-A great deal of rain has iilen in this
District. within a few days past. We fear that
that the low ground corn and cotton crops will
be mtuch injured.

pressed his unwillingness for South Carolina to
take part in the coining Presidential elertion.
The Judge however. is in favor of the Sub

TarifY. Ilow thent, does it happen. that none
of the leading administration papers advocate
this measure ? We have seen it stated. that no
Democratic press is now in favor of it. This
fact is snfficient to prove the falsity of the charge.
At a late Whig celehration in North Carolina
31r. Culpepper formierly a member of Congress,
and a friend of Gen. IHarrison, biasted of the
able Cabinet which he (Culpepper) could form
of such men as Webster, Clay. andI Preeton.
Hie and Generahi-Harr-ison are welcome to sutch
Feidera!ists as Webster and Clay, and the errat
ic Mir. Preston if their party succeed.
The Pran'deg pricilege.-None hav-e coim
plained more than the Whxigs. of th~e ahne~e of
the frankmgz privilege, yet none have sitnied
more thtan they. It is a well known fecet, that
WVhig-memnbers of Cesngress, hnve endiorsedl
electiotneering pamphlets as "Public Doc
melnts," and sent them by nail, all over lie
country. The Staten Islander says, that the
"Execntive Commiitee coitposed of Whig
membets of Congress at Washington, amiong
other parcels, sent by mail, five copies of a
pamphlet of sixteen pages. (mnakiing eighty
pages,) entitled "a sketch of the life and <ervi
ces of Wmt. Henry Iharrison." &c., dire-cted to
said paper. This parcel wase marked "Puliic
Docuenut.'' Iere, is an abnse of thme frakintr
privilege, of the most fl.cgrant chiaracter-. Yet
the imnmactulate men wvho perpetrate such enor
tnities, have the hardihood to comiplain tmost
loudly of their opponents!
Th'ie WVhigs have actually tmade theo great dhis
covery, that Mir. Van Buren was ait a hall in
Albany, whilst Gen Ilarrison somme hundred
miles distant, was gainitng at glorious victory.
Wonderful discovery. truly ! They chinekle
greatly, at the anties which little Van was play

Our Cotton market has declined full one
