Oaxsoriauao, Aug. 9. f
Messrs. Editors :-lIlavinig seen In your I
paper last week. an account of the accident
which happened on the rail road between
Branchville and Orangeburg, calculated
to mislead the public and do injustice to v
those who have charge of tb repairs of that I
rod, I have taken some pains to examine r
the spot where it occurred, and ascertain c
all the facts connected with it, and have no u
hesitation in saying that the passengers f
wereentirely mistaken in supposing that r
it was caused by the lpreading of the tim- n
bers (planks) of the plantation bridge, or I
road crossing. The flange o' tle wheel of I
the locomotive mounted on the rail near a
the centre of the bridge, and the wheels left '
neither rail until they were entirely clear a1
of the bridge, and could not possibly have I
touched the planking. The farm bridge %
or road crossing of a few planks spikcd a
to the cross ties between the rails. even if
they had spread so much as to touch the
rails, could not possibly have caused the
accident. Neither was it caused by the
spreading. or any derangement of the
track, for that has not been touched, and t
is now as good as when !aid. It was ow- '
ing to this portiou of the track being in
such good order that the locomotive with I
an unusually large train of about twenty I
burden cars besides the passenger train) I
was proceeding at its usual rate of twenty b
miles an hour. I have examined the en- V
gine, and could see no indications of the
butting block having struck the plankin:;
of the bridge, as some have supposed. It
is true, part of the frame of the butting
block is broken off, but that was done on C
another part of the road at a former time. t
At the time I examined the road, it F
would be impossible, from the appearance d
of the ground, to form any judgement as to 11
the immediate cause of the accident; but 11
I have no hesitation, from all the informa- d
tion I can collect, in concurring with tile
statement of those who had charge or the r
train, that it was caused by a piece of tim- "
her inserted, by design, between the plan
king of the bridge and the rail, in a manner Y
as to throw tie engine off the track.
This is the first accident that has happen
ed to the train which hits regularly made 4
one or two trips a day for upwards of thir. a1
teen months, running a distance of about c
20,000 miles without interruption, exce pt
one week after the great flood last spring.

LODI, S. C. Aug. 6. 1811. 11
On Wednesday evening the 2Sth ult.. tb
this neighborhood was visited by one of i
the most destructive storms that I recollect
ever to have witnessed. Iletween the b
hours of 3 and 4 o'clock, tiwo clouds rose.
one in the West, the other in the North, i;
and when they came together the most pro- a
fuse torrents of rain detcended for about '
one hour, accompanied by wind, thunder
and lightning. The daniage done to the b
growing crops is immense; but the injury
lands sustained by the washing rains, is, if ms
possible, still greater. Many small farm
ers estimate their loss at frot 150 to $2110,
and I do not consider the estimation at till
extravagant. A gentleman in this vicini
ty had a valuable uegro woman killed by
lightning during the storm.-Grecarille t

Nothing deserving particular notice lha oc
rurred in our market since my last report: the
detand for Cotton having gradually subsided.
anId the aspect of buiness, in general, having
exhibited rather a quiet appearance. The ar
rival of the Acadia. at Boston, with later intel
Ilgence fromi fo & markets. has had no per.
ceptible effect ian bs Coton market, as the
accounts were not of a nature calculated to pro
duce any improvement.
The prevalence of tunst.al had weather for
the last few days, has no dout contrihuted in a
great iensure to the falling otTin business. Pri.

that the stock of Cotton now on hand is light,
and feeliig asnured that there luntst he a steady

Upon the whole, it is generally admitted that
there will Ie no material fluctuation in prices.
iand but littie improvement is expected. until i f.
ter the opening of the fall trade.
The demand for Flour continues steady. and
holders are firm at tse previous qpsotations. We
note no change in prices.
The recent arrivals of Corn have been smfli
cient for the demand. and I copy the last gjoo
