THURSDAY, DEc EMBER 10, 1840.
The Hon. F. W. Pickens left last week,
for Washingion, to take his sent in Con
gress, which was to have assembled, on
Monday last. We trust that we shall be
able, to present to our readers the Presi
idit's message next week.
We have noticed in some or our ex
chnnge papers, au account of a duel which
receutly took place between Mr. P. S.
Brooks and Col. L. T. Wigfall, of this vil.
Iage, im which it is stated, thal both wete
mortally wounded. in justice to the par
lies, and for tile satisfaction of their dis
anut friends, we pre happy to state, that
the parties were but slightly wounded, and
are nearly restored to health. Mr. Brooks
is at present at his father's mansion.
We are indebted to our Representative,
Dr. R. C. Guilliu, for the Report of the
Committee on Privileges and Elections,
touching the Richland Election.
Soulth Carolina Senator.--The Hon,
JoHN C. CALHOUN, hias been unanimously
re-elected U. :. Senator, for ttie term of.
six years years from the 4th of March
On the 1st inst., the following gentle
men wrere chosen Electors for this State :
Messrs. John Crawford, James J. Cald
well, J. S. Ashe, Alexander Mazyck, H.
D. Johnson, Wm. Willie, J. S, Jeter, W.
HI. Cannon, John Btwbanou, T. J. Good
wan, and John Jeukins. The Electors
niet on the 2nd inst., and voted for Mar
tin Van Buren for President, and Littleton
W. Tazewell, for Vice President.
It affords us great pleasure to atnnounce
to our readers, that Julius J. Du Bose, the
talented cditor of the S. C. Temperance
Advoente, has been elected Treasurer of
t he Upper Division. A more judicious se
lection could not, iii our opinion, have
been made. Mr. D. is a gentleman and
scholar, and well qualified to discharge the
duties of his office.
On the 1st inst. the following gentlemen
were, admited by the Court of Appeals,
to practice in the Courts of Law, in this
Messrr. R. G. Barnwell, Samuel D.
Barron. Levi S. Bowers, C. R. Rryce,
W. W. loyce. John Coleman. E. M..

At the sane time the rollowing, gentle
men were admited to practico in the
Courts of Equity.
Messrs. Jn. Cunningham, Wi. Cer.

The weather foar sonme weeks piast. has
becen: unusually mild and plensant, until
within the last fuw dlays, during which. it
huas utndergoine a material change. A cold
northenst windl.accompnnied with rain.
has imineeccd mna:15 of our citiz- us to-draw
on their overe.ats anud capls, and produced
qiie a sensation in then wood market.
Maiy similar movemenats, indlicated a
readiness on thme part of our cotmmunimy, to
wvelcomne the st'rn monarch of the North.
Winier has inmled arrived. The ener
gies of nat ore are prostrated. Tjhe leaves
of the forqst are fast falling to the ground.
The branches are stripped of their ver
diure, and the cold north wind chants the
reqtuiemt of the dying year. The w'oods
aire silent and descrted, atnd where but a
short time since, the blithe melodies of
birds, was heard nothing now meets the
ear, but the crenking of some broken
branch as it swings in the chill blast, in
symphhoiiouJS cadence, with the solitary
hooting of the distant owl. The long
evenings arc enjoyed by the young and
gay, while the m-mi of contemplat otn, is
drawn to reflect on that final close of
earthly interest, dlesires and anticipations,
which usher in the witier of death.
WVe perceive by otir exchange papers,
that the United States Mint are coining
dlollars smaller in diameter, than those
now in circulation. We sh.al' not oppose
this alteration, provided the number is ini
ereasedh in proportion , for we now, find it'
impossible to retnin any of them long
enough in our posseesion, to ascertra
whether they are large or small.
