COLUMBItA. Decr. 9, 184'3
Sir-In consequence of indisposition I was
deprived of the satisfaction of being present at
the delivery of the speech by Mr. Preston, on
Tuesday evening last, at the College Chapel.
and am therefore unable to give you an ac
count of how it'- came off." but from what I
can understand from those who attended, Mr.
P. acquitted himself in it masterly style.
Both Hotses of the Legi.'.ature are moving
on with their businesa with the velocity of a
locomotive under a heavy pressure of steam, and
from what I learn rost the members, there
will be, barring accidents, lots of important bn
ainess traisacte.d this session.
On Tuesdry and Wednesday last, the Conr
of Appeals was occupied in the Augusta Bridge
Case, wl- ich, on account of its loug standing.
and tike immense capital involved, created coo
siderable excitement. The venerable fann
aler of the Bridge appeared in Court. and by
permission of thd Judges, plead his own cause.
which he did, not with the sagacity of a well
feed lawyer. but with the eloquence of an injur
ed man. who wanted nothing but the proceeds
of his labor in by-zone years, he was attentive
ly listened to by the Court and audience, and,
in my humble opinion he has been much ir,
jured. The old gentleman has been much in
disposed. but he acquitted himself in a manner
that would have been a cedit to an able attor
ney---he has my wishes for his success.
The Conventions of Bible, Agricultnral, and
Temperance Societies. came of well, and no
doubt, will be beneficial, eventually, to ont
State. as it has a tendency to gather into Con
vention a large number of our citizens, who
otherwise would not become acquainted with
the policies best to be pursued in the different
sections of our State, towards the advancement
of those great causes. The Bible Societies
has done much towards ameliorating the evils
attending the want ofeducation; the Agrictl
tural Societies have, by their researches, much
eniched our Farmers and Planters, generally,
in useful knowledge ; and the cause of Tern
perauce has acted upon both as a main spring,
moving thousands to flee from the "error of
their ways," tanmd in unbnerous instances. turn
ing barren fields into gardens. under the hands
of those who once were the followers and wor
shippers of King Alcohol.
The t oad drawn together by the meeting
of the Conventions have nearly dispersed. and
there are but few strangers here. (save men
hets of the Legislature.) The office seekers
have gone to their respective homes. those
who were appointed, no d'nht satisfied, and
those who were defeated finding fault with the
uncertainty of politicians.

their constituents bills, resolutions, &c. thrown
on. or tinder the table, he forced to stay at
home and attend to feeding their pigs and men
The el-eti..r fib Judges will come off I ex
pect the first of next week. One would sup
pose. from the large batch of youiig Lawyers
admitted to practice at the present session of
the Court of Appeals, that crime was rapidly
on the increase in our State, or that our tise
Legislators had it in contemplation. perhaps,
to double the Jude,-ships. to may profitable
livings for the old lawyers, and make room fur
the young ones.
The President's Message has been received,
and is spoken of. by some of the knotting ones,
who pretend to be judges. as a very excellent
