EDGEFIELD C. 11.
TiURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1840.
We deem it necessary, to make an apology
or the bad appearance of our sheet this week.
Notwithstanding our great exertiomis, we have
been unable to procure a supply of paper at
Augusta, where we have usually imade our pur
chascs, for some time past. We are compelled
to print this edition on paperdimimitive iii size,
and of various colours. Truly. tie Advertiser
this week, looks like Joseph's - coat of many
colours!" Jesting aside, we regret this, and
will spare no cost, or pains. to obtain a full
supply of good paper as earl% ;I possible.
In.consequence of the small size of thissIheet.
and a scarcity of hands at present, we canoiit
according to our promi.se, publish tie full te
turns of our District elections this week, hmt
will do so in our next paper.

Accident and Death.- We miited to state in
our last, that on the7thm int. as .\lr. J. W. St:l
naker of this District. was ridi g jimt eef tihe'
Village, on his ctutte home, he was tiruowui
violently from his ioise .gainii-t a tree. and so
imuch injured, that lie died early iext mormnr.
A jury ofimquest was unimioned, who relportcd
that his death was caused by I 11l fro'm his

and extensive itforn.ation.
The general electioi ii this Distriet. lis ter
minated most successfully for the Democratic
party. We felt confident of this result a long
time since. The muisreoresentatmis, perver
sions of frcts, and humubuggrry of tIme Whigs.
which they have emiplo: I-(d, with some sicce!SS
in other quarters, have had no efltct upo; the
erlighteied citizens of Ed-etichl. All their ef
forts to enittap the unwary amid the iginPracet. ianl
to seduce them into the support of 2ecir /ede-ral
candidate for the Presidency. leave proved uiii
vailing. All their plis te ex-te a fi-eling in
favor of the old General, am ongst us, have
proved utterly abortive. It was seen. that
the highest nutmber of votes obtaimed (n the
Harrison ticket, amnounit d to 4,1. It mi-t not
be supposed, by our readers abroad, that all
these votes were given by Whigse.
Previous to the elecion. we heard it said. that
at least one of the Whig camdidat. < fer thee Le
gislature, would receive a number of Delmo
cratie votes. We know. t;ht ie did receive
somei Deimocrattie votes. thmotigh we cannoimt state
