From what we learn fromn some of the
districts'in this State where at the last elec

contest was mamntained, we are induces
to believe, that it is not intended to be re
newed this sunmmer. In Abbeville, wi
understand, that party lines will not be
drawn, there being yet but one candidat<
of the whig faith in the field, and a de~ter
mination being expressed by many here;"a

in their vastes by party considermations.
The majority in the State is so great, than
eve if some three or fuur districts should
after a regular party contest, elect whij
members, they would constitute such
small minority as to be powerless. Unde
these circutmstances, and from the addi
tional one, that no election can be held Co

Gentlemen :--Your informant is not
mistaken in his views relative to "public
opinion,'' in the Bridge case. He can

left to a Jury. a verdict would have been
a wtarded to Mr. Shuhma withesat leaving
sYour correspondents "Eye !~e

ow whoe expected to receive mode @
JMr. :Shuhtz in the event of his kce.
- 'a huse hopes were bias~erd when they heard
t the testmonuy ; that on behalf of the defent
,dants being extremely well arranged, and'
conclusively showing the injustice of Mr.
aShulta's claim." True! the Lastimony
of Lthree witnesses; the same number of
sour l,:ater writers, seem to have succeeded
r better before you, than before the Chance!
. There is no accounting for the depravity
, of mankind these days, in their doing and
ayings, even of those of high or low dere

aMr. Shults has acted as apy honest man

factory arrangements with the owner there

sAs for the firing of Mr. Shnltz's cannon,
your correspondents are entirel mistaken,
