terms, welcoming his arrival and ten duriing to

plied at some length, but we must defer to
another opportunity any notice of his remarks."
road Commissioners Duty.-We, some time
since, called the attention of the Commissioners
to the law relative to the butting up of " Guide
Boards and Mile Stones," throughout the dis
trict, thinking, that a word to the wise would
be enough, and that the work had been ere
this completed, and. paid for ; we were some
what surprised, upon perusing the Greenville
M1runtaineer, of the 29th ult. at finding the fol
lowing editorial remarks upon the negligence
of duty on the pact of the Commissioners of
thisand Abbeville District, with an ext::nct from
the law annexed. -r% e would advise our Com
missioners to set abunt the work immediafely,
as travelling editors, like candidates. have very
little mercy upon negligent officers. and they
may, should some ill natured editor loose his
way, be nulted into damages.
From the Mountaineet.
Guide Board and Mile Stones.-We know of
nothing which gives the traveller more comfort
and satisfaction, when passing through a sec
tion of country he is unacquainted with, than
for the road to be properly supplied with correct
Guide Boards and Mile Stones. These remarks
were veryforcibly biought to our mind, a few
weeks since, whilst journeying upon a main
market road through Abbevillo and Edgefield
Districts. In those Districts, there are no
Guide Boards at many important forks of roads
(as we learned to our cost, in one instance, at
least) and a large number of the Mile Stones
are either incorrect or so unintelligible as not
to give the traveller any information at nil.
Similar complaints are made in the upper Dis
tricts of this State, but not to so great an ex
'ent. In order to remedy these evils, our Le
gislature passed a very saltury Act at its last
session, from which we republish the following
extract, and hope Commissionets bf Roads will
pay particular attention to iti
" Every Commissioner of Rodds. in his re
spective road division, shall cause nll the roads
in his division to be posted and nuihered. ned
at each Fork f said Roads a pointer declaiiu,
the direction of such Roads; and any Commis
sinner failing oir neglecting to do so. shall be
liable to pay the sun of tti dollars foe each
aid every such neglect, to be recov,-red by in
dictment in the Court of General Sessions of
the District wherein the same occurs, to he
paid when collected, to the Treasurer of the
Board to which such delinquent belongs: Pro
sided, no Commissioner shall be liable to said
penally who puts up said pointers at such time
as he works his road division."
Swindling.-We have been shewn a hand
bill, (says the Charleston Courier,) dated Lan
caster. (Pa.) March 30, describing the person
of a swindler named Martin Light, or Lisghtt,
who obtaine'd-from various persons some $1600
and for whose detection a reward of two butn
dred dollars is offered. The description is as

Annexation and the Texans.-Our read
ers may have seen it- stated in the papers,
that there was but one member of the
late Texan Congress, opposed to atnex
ing that territory to the United States. It
is dow said that the painful anxiety he
evinced upon gthe subject, his earnest and
serious opposition to the measure-aroused
the curiosity of members, when on inqui
ry, it was ascertained that he was a native
of the United States. and ran off to Texas,
under circumstances which might warrant
the arrest of n fugitive from justice!
