We have been informed that Col. B. T. EL.

The latest accounts fron Cincinnati, tr '
Tucsday morning the 7Uh inst., state that J
further outrages had been committed since Sa
turday night, and that tie city wasgettingquiet.
Congress.-This body adjourned on Monday
the 13th inst.. afker au Etra Session offifteen
weeks, during which time the majority hasdone
nothing but devise Was and Means, to ruin the
PtacAa X. BarTLE, Esgr., Ex-Governor of
this State, was nominated by the President as
Indian Agent among the Cherokees. on the last
night of the late session, which nomination was
confirmed by the Senate. The first gentleman
nominated fur that office, was Mfr. Adams of
Virginia, who, report says, war the person who
took Mr. Bott's letter from the Eichmond Cof.
fee House, and sent at to the President. The
Washington correspondent of the N.Y. Express,
thinks, he was probably rejected by the Senate
for committing that act.
The Laze Rains.-We learn from various
sources, that the rain which fell on Thursday
last, was more destructive to the Crops, Mills.
and Bridges, than any other that ever fell in this
section of country. The rain in our immediate
neighborhood was .omparatively light; but the
upper part of this district and A bbeville, have
suffered much. As far as we can learn, all the
Bridges, and nearly all die 31iills on Stevens'
Creek, Cunfectown and Hard Labour, (in this
district,) and Long Cane and Little River, (in
Abbeville,) are swept away. Smith's Bridge
on the Saluda River. we understand, is gone.
Many ofthe wates courses were from 4 to 6 feet
higher than ever known before. It is presum.
ed that the injury will be greater to the Corn
than the Cotton Crop, as the Corn is generally
planted in low places, and much ofit was entire
ly covered with water for several hoursamid we
fear that thaterup, though quite abundant, will
be cut very short in many places.
The New Cabinet.-The following from the
Mediseaian of the 16th inst., are the appoint
ments made by the President and confirmed !wy
the Senate, as Cabinet Officers:

From the Hamiurg Journal,I6th inst.
A few moments after II o'clock last 1
night, and just as our paper was going to
press, an alarm of fire was given, which 9
has caused a delay to our regular issue.- J
The fire was fist discovered its the sto:e
of 31r. George Parrott, on Centreone door r
above Mercer street, and adjoining that of a
Messrs. Sibley & Crapon, on the corner of y
Mercer and Centre streets. The. house e
being of wooden materials mostly. were
soon enveloped in flames, which immedi- b
ately caused the destruction of both houses.
Here the progress of the flames Aere ar- s
rested, and we learn, that the btildings
were insured. The total amount ofgoods l
lost will not exceed $40.000. of which r
about two-thirds nrc covered by insurance,
If is no doubt the work of an incendiary,
and we hope. that in a dhy or two, he will p
be brought to justice. But if we were to C
stop here in speakitig of our narrow ebvape 1i
from destruction, we should not he dischar. It
ging a duty of obliation antl thatakfulness
which we owe to the fire companes andti
to many of the citizens of Augusta, for their h
great exertion extended to our people, in t
subdning and arresting :he progress of the r:
fire. We owe them much, for it was by h
their unceasing labor and activity that i
saved the city frotm a heap of ashes, as c
the wind was then high. and every thing P
wits favorable for a general swieep of the A
flame<. No sooner was the alnrn of fire I(
given, than they forthwith repaired to the c
scene with engines nod axes, anti rendered Is'
us that relief which we were unable our- 0
selves, to lay hold of. Great praise is due
to the fire companies of Aunusta, nud we p
believe that there is none tnore vigilant ti
and capable of performing their duty than .t

My Dear Brother: As I was on Friday.
ist, closing a con nioteation for tlietecor
er & Watchman, in which I had attenp
!d to correct some mistakes, fallen into
y writers in their statements of the adjust
ient at Baltimore, the paper containing
our letter to the Eelitor, onl the subject of
Irother Fuller's communication to him,
eached me. Although I trust, that the
bove mentioned communication, which
on will see, before th is letter reaches you,
ill convince you of your mistake in re
irence to the "compromises," as it has
een called,and, I would hope,will also finin
anvince you of its propriety, yet, lest there
bould remain the least dissatisfaction in
1e mind of a dear brother, whom I so
ighly regard. as my brother Duncan, I
Dadily make this effort for its removal.
take the liberty of making it in ibis pub
c manner, because your dissatisfaction is
ublicly made, and because, if your judi
ious mind has a donbt of the propriety of
te adjustment, the minds of ninny others
any be like%% ise disquieted.
In your letter to the Editor, as referred
) above, you say: "But it will perhaps
c tid tts, that the compromise made at
:e Triennial Convention has removed eve
difficuly ; and that we of the South,
ive no further reason for complaint.
Vhat think you, brother Editor ? Is that

ect ? It cotitains no uisclaimer against
,holitionijis or their principles. thereby
aring untouched the main subject of diji
illy. Will such tertms of confederacy be
ihbscribed to by us down South ! For
tie I think not."
I presume. my Brother, firn your ap
roal (of the li.esultion of your Associa

bkolitionists from the Convetion, is "such

such terms of confederacy the South could
jbscribe." Nou permit me to assure you
itsuch an adjustment was absolutely
npracticable. because unconstitutional.
