EDGEFIELD C. H.
THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1841.
.-The JHon. F. W. PICKENS, arrived
home from Washington, on the 12th inst.
The great length of the Inaugural Ad
dress, which we publish to-day, must be
-ur excuse for the exclusion of other valu
able matter which, in consequence, has
been crowded out.
The Rains.-Since our last paper, a lar
ger quantity of rain has fallen, than has
been known for many years. Much dam
age has been sustained by the loss of bridg
es, and we have no doubt that low ground
plantations, upon the rivers and creeks,
have suffiered materially. The Rail Road
soo, must have been much injured, as up
:to the time we write, we have had no
quails from Charleston or Columbia, since
uTesday, the 9th inst. The mail due at
-this place from Hamburg and Augusta,
on Thursday morning last, did not arrive
.until Saturday evening. Hamburg has
again been overflowed, but the damage
was comparatively small, as the rise in the
Savannah was so gradual, as to give the
merchants sufficient time to save the most
valuable of all their goods. The injury
to Cotton has been trifling. We publish
an extract from the Hamburg Journal,
giving a more definite description of the
freshet, which will be found in another
column. We learn, by report, that the
Rail Road Bridge over the Edisto River,
.has been swept away, and much damage
.otherwise done to the Rail Road. We
-hope, however, to have a Charles:on and
Northern mail before our paper goes to
The observation of our readers, will have
corroborated our own. that there is a gen
eral tendency, at present, toward a reduc.
iea of credits, and an increased circum
spection in giving them.- Men warned by
experience, are less eager to sell goods,
property, or products, on credit; and less
ready to consider a mere promise to pay,
in future, however formal, the synonyma
ofactual payment. Coincident with this,
is their increased reluctance to run in debt
not universal, by any means, nor perhaps
4o general as it should be, but far more
prevalent, than a few years since. We
trust that the events of the last few years,
with the controversies now in progress,
will work out a thorough reform, in the
- matter ofcredits; we have no fear that
"have greatfaith in the credit system, and
dislike credit without system. We hope
t o see more regularity-more security
and more system in the manner of giving
credit, than has hitherto prevailed in this
country. We hope to see the day, when
the man who needs to borrow a few hun
- dred of dollars, to improve his farm, or in
crease safely, and advantageously, his bu
siness, will he almost certain of obtaining
it on perfect security; while at the .same
time, the whole business of petty indebted
ness-of accounts running on with the
Merchant, the Tailor, &c. &c., will be
dispensed with altogether. Under such a
state of things, there would, at any rate,
be fewer foolish and improvident purchases
*made, if payment were invariably requir
ed, on the delivery of the article pur
chased. The subject is worthy the atten
tion of all business men.
We have received the " Magnolia, or
Southern Monthly," published by P. C.
Pendleton, at Savannah, Ga. The terms
are five dollars per annum, in advance. |
The Contents of the number before us,
-are entirely original. Among the contri
butors to it, are W. Gilmore Simmis, Esq.,
of South Carolina, and the Hon. Richard
a Henry Wilde, of Augusta, Ga. There is
much matter in it, of an interesting and an
- .perior character. The mechanical execu
tion of the work is very neat. We hope,
that this periodical w-ill not be suffered to
languish, like too many of its predecessors,
but that it will receive a generous patron
mjge from the Southern public.
The Paineaville (Ohio) Republican,hav
ing died of, a short time since, the Editor
. of the Conneaut Gazette, has caused to

* The Spirit of the Times," is the title
- .ofi spirited lit'le paper, just started in
* Charleston, under the stiperintendence of
A. 3. Muir, Esq.
We learn, says the Charleston Courier,
"that. the Hon. Win. J. Grayson, late
member of Congress. from Beaufort and
Colleton District, will certainly be ap
pointed Collector of the Port of Charles
ton; and that this will probably be the
only oficial change that will be made by
the new administration, in that city."
A Grand Rewoard.-The Legislature of
Kentucky have passed a resolution offer
ing a reward of 83,000 tor the discovery
of the cause of the Milk Sickness in Cows,
It is said that John Jacob Astor orNew
York, has lost a million of dollars by the
failure of the United States Bank.
For the Advertiser.
Ma. EDITOR-I was so much pleased
with the moral of the following beautiful
lines, which I read a short time since in a
newspaper, that I must ask the favor of
you to publish them in the Advertiser.
The sentiment contained in these stanzas,
should be impressed upon every human
heart. If it were more generally felt, who
could estimate the amount of good it would
"I HAVE NO INFLUENCE."
What if the little rain should say,
So small a drop as 1,
Can ne'er refresh those thirsty fields,
I'll tarry in the sky!
What if a shining beam of noon,
Should in its fountain stay,
Because its feeble light alone,
Cannot create a day ?
Doth not each rain drop help to forin
The cool, refreshing shower;
And every ray of light to warm,
And beautify the flower ?
Another Freshet.-The heavy fall of
rain, which continued for some days have
swollen our river to a fresher, coming tip
to about four feet of last May's flood. The
river commenced rising on Tuesday last,
and did not get to its height until about 12
o'clock at night on Thursday.
The lower port of the city was overflow
ed, and the water rose into sone of the
store-houses, from 3 inches to 3 feet.
W-. are, however, gratified' to learn, that
but little damage has been sustained, with
the exception of a few thousand bushels of
salt, that could not be raised in time. Pro
fiting by the lesson received last spring,
our merchants began. in time to move their
goods up, and thereby have come off with
a very trifling loss: the hand hire being
the greatest item, if we except the salt, as
before stated. Market street, on which the
business formerly was done,- kept dry and
comfortable. The water had to rise some
three feet more to overflow it.
We have been informed by one of our
merchants, that he has not lost 124 cts. by
the freshet, although the water was idf his
store. The warehouses have escaped, not
a bale lost, and the damage done to the
cotton, by the water, will not exceed two
hundred dollars, notwithstanding there are
some thousand bales in store.
The bridges are repaired, and every
thing in pretty good order.-Hamburg
Journal, 13th inst.
The Freshet.-Our citizens, up to yes
terday. when it was observed that the
river was falling, had been laboring under
the most intense anxiety for the previous
two days, in fearful anticipation of su-h
another freshet as that of last May. They
the river did not rise within fve or six feet
as high as on that occasion, consequently
it did not get into the city. . The injury
therefore, s confined exclusively to the
wharves, the extentof which cannot be as
certained as they are yet covered with wa
ter. Hamburg has however suffered again
considerably, as a great portion of the busi
ness part of the town was inundated, and
the water standing from six inches to three
feet in most of the stores. The loss of
property will however be small compared
wtth last spring as the rise in the river was
so-gradual as to give the citizens warning.
The injury to plantations on the road is no
doubt great, but we have had no intel
ligence of the extent. The Rail Roads
too, have probably come in for a consider
able share of the damages, as we have had
no mails since Wednesday from any quar
ter.-Chron. Sj Sentinel, 13th inst.
Commencement of the College of Charles
gon.-Our community united yesterday,
with unabated enthusiasm, and in undi
minished numbers, in the celebration of
the annual commencement of this valued
and cherished institution, which imparts
the blessings and advantages of a liberal
education to its sons, without estranging
them from "the sweet endearments" or
hollowed influences of home. The pro.
cession was formed at the College, and
was the largest ever known on such on .
occasion in this city-and forming a part'
of it was his E xcellency the Governor ot
the State, with his Aids, the Mayor and
Aldermen of the city, the Reverend Cler
gy, and the United States, State and City
Judiciary. Ott entering the Church a
beautiful and brillantspectacle wasexhib
ited-its spacious area was thronged with
the beauty and fashion of the city-presen
ttng the appearanuce of a great flower gar
den in the bloom of living lovliness. We
regret much that a pressing and indispen
sable professional engagemneut denied us
the power of attendance until near the close
of the exercises, Ithe last speaker but one
having commenced before we arrived) and
has consequently disabled us from giving a
detailed comment on the several perfor
mances. We have been assured, howev
er, by competeur judges, that the whole
performance was in the highest degree
creditable to the institution and the class,
and that the latter fully realized asSeniors;
their brilliant promise as Jutniorq, at the
previous annual commencement. They
all evinced a manly, elevated anti inde
pendenit straitn of thought, an easy, distinct
elocution and graceful delivery,and a style
of composition,. a t once chaste nd eloquent;
and taking the last twvospeakers as a test.
our own judgment confirms the report of
others. It is worthy of note, as setting an
examptle for imitation, that the addresses
were of that judicious length, which broke
none of their pleasing effet, by fatigning
the attention of the audience.-Charles

By the U. S. Stoamcr- den. Taylor,
Capt. Peck, we Irave received from our
attentive correspondent the subljoined let
Lieut. Alburtis, with IS men, was at
tracted by the report of rifles to the spot
where the Corporal lay, and 70 or 80 In
dians rejoicing over his body.
Lieut. A. gave them a volley, which,
he thinks, killed a number. The Indians
then offered battle, and after sustaining
himself for an hour against this AIrce, and
having exhausted his ammunition, lie re
tired to his post. Reinforced, he sallied
out a second time, and another fight ensu
ed, but the Indians forced him to retire to
his post with two men of his force killed
and six wounded.
The Dragoons and Infantry are in pur
suit. Nothing new from Tampa. The
Indians have not gone west.
Correepondence of the Savannah Georgian.
FLORIDA, March 3d, 1841.
Under (late of the 15th ultimo, I appriz
ed you of the negociations gning on, and
of the expectations of many in relation
thereto, but warned you not to place any
reliance upon the ud ians. Have my pre.
t'ictions been verified ? Listen. Yester
day, Lt. Alburtis, Comt'g. company K.,
2d Infantry, was attacked at his post (Fort
Brooks, on the Oclawaha) by 100 Indians,
supposed to be Alleck-tuste-nugee's band;
the circumstances, (so far as they have
been ascertained from a soldier just from
the scene of action.) are these:
A Corporal, out hunting, was killed;
some of his comrades who escaped, report
ed to Lt. Alburtis that the Indians, in force
were near him. Taking with him 18 men,
he sallied out, leaving the rest of his com
pany in the block house, with orders in case
they were attacked not to yield. Lt. Al
burtis, in a few moments, fell in with the
Indians, and an action commenced which
lasted upwards of an hour. Our brave
men were forced to retreat, but lid so in
good order, keeping up a continued fire un
til their ammunition was exhausted. Be
ing cut off from their own post, they retir
edI to Fort Russell. Capt. Barnum, with
a large force, immediately started in pur
suit. A command of fifty men from Fort
Hoimes were also out together with 100
dragoons from Pilatka. . The soldier from
whom the above islderived, says he believes
but one man was killed unai five or six
wounded. A number of Indians were seen
to fallduring the action. We shall have
the full particulars to-morrow; perhaps
this afternoon's express may tell us some
thing. If.the Way Bill contains an endorse
ment, I will endeavor to obtain permission
of the Quarter Master to copy it.
FURTHER AND LATER FROM FLORIDA.
The schr. Empire, Capt. Southwick,
arrived here last evening, from St. Augus
tine, by which vessel we received the fol
lowing extra, from our attentive correspon
dent at that place:
Office of the News,
ST. AUGUsTINE, March 7.
Information reached here last evening,
that an express arrived at Pilatka, from
Fort Russell, on the night of the 4th, bring
:...... .....as,. omr. D., lws, -with
*one hundred men, (including nine mount
ed,) came up with the Indians, (whom Lt.
Alburtis had been compelled to retreat
from, on account of the smallntess of his
force,) at the - head of Orange Lake, and
commenced an attack upon mthem. Capt.
B. had placed the nine mounted men in
ambush, as a reserve, and led on the ethers;
but finding theindians in such a body, he
made a signal for the mounted men to come
up. No sooner was the signal made, when
the Indians, having cut off these men from
the main body, fired upon them, killing
six, !and the other three retreated to the
Fort, being wounded. The express was
immediately sent ofi'to Pilsika, without
knowing any thing further. The wounded
men state that Capt. B. was still fighting.
Capt. Cat r, 2d dragoomns, with one hun
dred men, was sentout from Pilstka a few
days previous, and returned shortly after
the express had arrived from Fort flussell.
He immediately supplied his men with
provisions, and started for Capt. B's. bat
tle ground. It is impossible to give the
particulars, under such a circumstance.
There is no knowinig the loss, as yet, that
Capt. B. has met with. Lieut. Albertus
had lost six or seven men the day before,
in his skirmish with the Indians, and wvas
forced to retreat on account of their numn
ber. This looks very much like "peace."
P. S.-T. S. Brown, the Canada Gen
eral, who wvas appointed to treatiwith the
idians, after going to Tampa Bay, was
not countenanced by Gen. Armistead, and
was very wisely given permission to return.
The Indians have not beetn shipped from
Tampa Bay. They are, no doubt, to be
let loose again ! .

The perfectly safe, unerring, and success

bythe useofMOFFAT'S LIFEMEDICINES
is no longer a matter or doubt, as a reference to
the experience of many thousand patients wid
satisfactorily prove. During the present monti
alone, nearly one hundred cases have come ti
the knowledge ofMr. Moffat, where the paien
has, to all appearance, effected a permanen
cure by the exclusive and judicious use of th,
Life Medicines-some eight or ten of thee
had been considered beyond all hope by thela
medical attendants. Strch happy results are
source of great pleasure to Mr. M. and inspiri
him with new confidence to recommend the
use of his medicines to his fellowy-citizens. -
The LIFE MEDICINES are a purely VE
GETABLE preparation. They are mild ant
pleasant in their operation, and at the sami
time thorough-acting rapidly u ion the .'ecre
tions of the system-carrying op all acrimelli
ous -humors, and assimilating with and purify
ing the blood. For this reaqon, in agravate<
cases of Dyspepsia, the Life Mcdicmes wil
give relief in a shorter space of time than an)
other prescription. In Fever-and-Ague, In

impaired appetite, and in every disease arising
from an impurity of the blood, or a disorderci

has -dways proved to he beyond doubt grealy
superior to any other mode of treatment.
