p7 In consequence of the length of the Ad
dress of Mr. Calhoun, and the extracts from
the Speech of Mr. McDuflie upon the Tariff,
we have been forced to omit considerabler mat
ter intended for this day's paper. We advise
our readers to give the above named articles
an attentive perusal, as we feel satisfied that
they will be well remunerated for their trouble.
07 Accotding to promise, we intend com
mencing the business of erasing from our list.
after this number, the names of such persons
as we think it useless in forwarding our paper
to,on account of their backwardness in paying
sp; therefore, those who do not receive the
next number, may expect to receive their ac
couts, "laufttLN attested," with orders, to
those into whose hands they will be consigned,
to prosecute to the full extent of the law. Up.
on receiving returns from our collectors, we
will publish a Black List, which shall contain
every name, (without respect to persons.) which
they return non est.- This Defaulters may rest
assured is our last call.
g7 We lay before our readers to-day, the
admirable Address of the Hon. Jons C. CAL
noun, "to his political friends and supporters,"
withdrawing himself from all connexion, with
t the Convention about to assemble at Baltimore
in May next. We, from the outset of the pre
sent Presidential campaign, contemplated that
something of this nature would be the result,
therefore we have not been disappointed. The
politicians with whom we expected to3have to
contend, to procure the nomination of this able
statesman, were, generally, of that class, that
little political honesty was to be expected from
them. as they had every thing to gain, and no
thing to lose; consisting, chiefly, of those who
had been discarded from office, by the present
administration, who expects, could they again
elevate Mr. Van Buren, to be replaced in some
sag birth, for their strict adherence to his prin.
tiples. With such opponents in a Convention
we saw no ray of hope for our Southern states
man becoming the nominee; the wire pullers
at the seat of goverment, having long since de
termined that the mode proposed by the South
ern Democrats, of voting in the Convention,
was injudicious, and would not give the North
that power which they conceive themselves, on
such occasions, entitled to, and which the South
have, heretofore, for the sake of Union.too tame
Ky submitted to.
Under such circumstances, all Southerners,
should hail this document as a second Declara
tino ndependence, as it speaks the maind of
veyindependent man. The die is now cast,
-and the question now before our citizens is,who
will South Carolina support for the next Presi
dencyi All her actions speak for themselves,
and plainly says: she is not in favor of a Ta
riffman, nor an Internal Improvement man ;
she abhors an United States Bank; she cannot
make friends with those in favor of assuming
the States Debts, and squandering the revenue
from the public lands; she is opposed to the
mutilation of the Constitution, by destroying
the Presidential Veto, tire safeguard of the
-South; in fact, she is at open war with all the
principles advocated by the opponents of Mr.
Calhoun, and we have no doubt she will act
wisely, and do as she has heretofore done in
such cases, select her own candidate.
As -our leader has retired so honorably from
the field, we lower our flag, and carefully pro.
serve it for a future day, when perhaps it may
be unfurled to the breeze under more favorable
Fire.-Our citizens were aroused from their
slumbers, on the night of the 30th ult., by the
appalling cry of Fire, which mound had not been
heard in our village for a long time ;-upon
repairing to the spot from which the light ap
peared, it was round to be the Blacksmith shop
-of our industrious citizens, Messrs. Glover &
Bushnell, which was totally consumed. Their
loss is estimated at about $300. Our Firemen
promptly repaired to the spot, and rendered
considerable service, by preventing the adjoin
ing buildings, iv'hich were all of wood, by their
exertions, from taking fire.
Mad Dogs.-Wo have been informed, that
a Dog passed through a section of this District,
o f about 15 or 20 miles, upon the Saluda river,
on the 9th tilt., perfectly mad, biting all the
dogs, hogs, and cattle, that came in his way.
Our informant states that a number of dogs
which were bitten by him are still retained by
.their owners, and that a fine steer, the proper
) ty of Mr. 3. H. Howle, which was bitten, went
mad upon-the 30th or 31st nit., about twenty.
one days after receiving the wound, and was
killed by its owner. We would advise the
owners.of all dogs to keep them up, after they
heye been bitten, at least onec month, least they
do an irrpparable injury to some of their own
family; or their neighrbors.

0T We regret exceeding: to learn from the
last Baptist Advocate, that that valuable Jour
nal is to be suspended for a short time, if not
altogether'.' The cause assigned, is a want of
sufficient patronage. All other denominations
support their.periodieals much better than the
Baptists. Several ineffectual attempts have
been made to establish Baptist pape's, in this
State and North Carolina, but, unfortunately,
not one has been able to continue in existence
more than two or three years. We do not
know the precise cause, but we fear it is, in a
great measure owing to the selfishness in the
majority of this denomination.

and towns along the Rio Grande. The follow
ing are the specific objects laid down to be ac
complished by the campaign, viz:
First-To procure a sufficient number of
Mexican prisoners of the highest ranks and con
sideration, to be held by our Government as
hostages for the good treatment and final re
lease of our citizens, prisoners in Mexico.
Second-To transfer the horrors of war from
our soil to that of the enemy, by destroying
their towns, breaking up their settlements, and
driving the inhabitants beyond the mountains.
Third-To support and pay our troops by
confiscation of property and forcing contribu.
Another bill proposing the annexation of
Texas to the United States had passed to its
second reading in the House of Representa

Foreigh relations. A correspondent of the
Houston Telegraph, writing from the seat of
Government, states that all the Representatives,
and all the Senators save one, composing the
Texan Congress, are in favor of annexation.

UY' The Washington (Wilkes Co. Geo.)

says that a wealthy English Company have
purchased a large tract of land (about 8000
acres) in South Carolina; seven miles above
Petersburg, Ga., on the Savannah river, in
cluding great water privileges, for the purpose
of entering largely into the business of manu
facturing cotton goods, &c. It is intended, it
is said, to import all the requisite workmen
from England, who are to be settled on the
land; thus forming an English colony in the
borders of the Palmetto State. We shall en
deavor to procure some further particulars rel
ative to this singular enterprize, as we doubt
not some of our readers will feel interested in

their cotton built up so close to them."

Mssrs Editor.-! understand that the
Students of Franklin College enacted an
other of those disgraceful scenes, for which
they have so distinguished themselves, on
the. occusion of she visit to Athens of Mr.
Joh W. Hawkins, the distinguished Tern
perne reformer.-This gentlemen was
molested on both nights of his lectures,
and the conduct of the students to him,
and the disrespect to the audience, was
such as almost exceeds belief. This is
not the fet uaneof th~ee literary row
dies. Mr. Taylor, another Temperande
lecturer, was equally badly treated. It
would. seem that these students learn as
much laziness as latin, and much more
rudeness of conduct than either good sette
or good manners.
They are thrice welcome to the wreaths
which encircle their brows-won and
worn in a cause in which every victory is
adefeat, and its highest honors-disgrace.
I understand also-that the Prifessorswere
not present on either occasion, nor many
of the citizens, in consequence of anticipa
ting a disturbance from the 'Students.

that there exists not the slightest necessity

We respond most cordially and heartily
to every thing which has been said, in the

Mr. Aiken is well known to every citizen
by the kindness and affability of his man
ners ahd deportment, there will be presen

unanimous support. No better earnest
can be given or required for the proper
performance of any duty that may be con

ability with which he has ever discharged
the public trusts that have been commit

Candler Broton.-This counterfeiter
passed through our village in the stage on
last Monday in charge of two persons on
his sway to Charleston, to undergo his
trial. We understand that on Tuesday
morning at Cedar Springs in Abbeville
through the culpable negligence of the in
dividuals who had him in Charge, and
who taking bim on without a single iron
upon his limbs, he escaped and no effort
what ever was made to recapture him.
The full amount of the money was refun
ded together with the reward offered by
the Charleston Broker, to the individuals
who had him in charge, and they said it
woul4 be no gratification to them to have
him hung. So justice and the gallows
are robbed of their legitimate victim-Be
tween this and Pendleton they permitted
him on two occasions to get out of the
stage alone and leave it fifty yards. When
the driver at Cedar Springs told the two
persons in the stage that Brown was ma
king oli, one of them pti his head out of the
window and said. "Go it Brown save
There is but little use in hunting up such
soundrels as Brown if they are thus per
mitted to buy their escape.
The Charleston Mercury of the 2d inst.,
says ; "Brown was found in the jail at
Newport, as has been before stated, where
he had been placed for safe keeping, and,
after shewing the proper authority and
paying the promised reward, he was pta
cee in Mr. Lloyd's custody, for the purpose
of bringitng him down to the place where
be had committed the offence. Some re
sistance was made by Brown, in the first
instance, to his removal, and it was neces
ary to use force to place him in fetters and
get him into the stage. After travelling
a daj or two in this way, however, he he
came more tractable, and the road being
rough, he complained much of suffering, in
consequence of liis hands being confined.
His intreaties for release, and promises not
to endeavor to escape, finally induced Mr.
L. and his companion, as an act of hu
manity, to release his hands from confine
ment, and thus free he travelled one whole
day. A fter leaving A bheville, he desired
that the stage should be stopped, and on
the door being opened Brown took to his
heels, giving his keepers leg bail for his
appearance at the next Court of Sessions.
All attempts to retake him proved fruit
less, and it is to be hoped that he has re
eived such a lesson as will prevent him
from making another attetmpt to swindle

market, and.the state of trade in a prosperous
conditiod, our cotton market has gone nu sev

were 86 ets; to-day we raise prices up to 10
cents, making the extremes 8 to 10 cents, mak

the cotton they can lptirchase, at the gomn rates:
and every appenrance indicates a sound and

Cotton.-The receipts during the week has
been moderate and principally by Rail Road.
We stated in our last weekly notice that the
market exhibited at the close of the week, a
drooping tendency, and we quoted a decline at
from a Ito f a cent. On Friday night last we
received accounts per the Britannia bringing
intelligence of an advance in the markets on
the other side of the Atlantic. This gave an
impetus to our market here. and considerable
activity prevailed until yesterday, when the
market exhibited some dullness, which grew
out of the firmness of holders in claiming the
full advance of J a cent, which had been pre
viously established, and a disinclination of buy
ers to operatr-rpon such terms. Extensive
sales were effected during the first of the pre
sent week, at prices ranging from 86 to 94 cts.

Cotten.-The receipts are still very small, bnt
the market has been very animated since the
arrival of the late favorable advices from Li

quotations of last week-say htis of a cent.

native of Rtichland county, Ohio, where his pa.

last three years lie had been a resident of Sonth
Carolina. and the past year-of Greenville Vil
lage. Ihis correct moral habits, rinwavering
ge-ntlemnnly deportinent, and general sauvity
of nianners, won the respect and esteem of all
who knew him. But lie has been snddenly cut
of';and the fond hopes entertained of his future
usefulness, forever blasted: We have reason
to believe, however, 'that their loss is his eter

pain and sorrow for one of never-ending bliss

It may be some consolation to his aged pa.

during the short and pasinful illness of their de

friends and skilful Physicians could bestow
and fcir a few of his last hours, the solemn and
affectionate nIlices of the only bkother he had
in this section of country. H is remains were
followed to their silent resting place (in the
