policy of the whigs; and in the second place,
he came out openly for a National Bank-ano.

Botts has by this means thrown his friends in

To the Editoroftthe Hamburg Journal
SIa,-In addressing you on the subject of
Mr. Clay's opinions,- "we presumed you
would eagerly embrace the opportunity offer
ed you to furnish information as to his princi
ples and remove the prejudices entertained by
some of our citizens against him." This we
understand you to decline doing, unless the in
dividual who propounded the interrogatories
will publish his name, That individual is a
private citizen who does not desire newspaper
notoriety, and therefore declines publishing his
name But why do you desire his name?
Would a knowledge of it alter your views as
to Mr. Clay, or Mr. Clay's views as to the great
questions which are now agitating the country?
Suppose the questions had never been ask
ed by " Carolina," would you not have been
under the most solemn obligation, to those
who read your paper, and look to it for correct
information, to have explained to them what
are the present opinions of Mr Clay. and what
are the principles that will probably govern his
administrattion? From what other source are
they to derive their information, if not from thn
newspapers that they read? i it not a duty
that you owe to Mr. Clay. to explain bins prin
ciples, and put him right before the public?
We cannot believe, that you desire to hood
'wink the people, and by appealing to their
prejudices, induce them to forget their prier
plea. Such a course would be an insult to the
State of which we are both citizens, and it is
with a feeling of proud satisfaction that we as
sert, that such a course would prove as ineffec
tual, as it would be insulting. There is no
State in the Union, in which the theory of tax
ation, the Constitution, the forms and powers
of our government are so thoroughly under
stood as in South Car'olina. This state of
things ham arisen, not fr-om any superiority
~'which our people originally possessed over the
people of other States; but from the very able
discussiorn which these questions tunderwent,
immediately preceding our struggles with the
Federal Government, in 1832, and subsequent
to that time. Remnmuber the effect of the Whig
mummeries of 1840 in our State. We remem
ber it with pride. When we asked what prin
ciples were to govern General Harrison's ad
ministration, in the wvant of his election, we
were told of his being a pout man, and living
in alog cabin. We asked Mttr. Van Buren's
friends what we had to expect from him, and
Sthey at once answered fully, and apparently
with frankness and candor. We supported him,
though personally opposed to him. His
-friends have not redeemed their pledges on the
Tariff question. We, therefore, distrust him,
and then the question now is, who shall we
support in the ensuitng election ?
You had declared yourself in favor of Mr.
Clay. We desimed information as to Mr. Clay's
opinions before committing ourseif to him, and
therefore applied to you for it. It seems that
-you are not disposed to furnish the information.
Why, we cannot imagine. We do not wish to
hear of the " Mill Boy of the slasher,"-the
"Farmer ofC Ashland," and " Harry of the
West." We have only to do with the princi
ples which are to govern his administration.
We believe that &tr. Clay once was a Mill
IBoy-the name of his plantation in Kentucky
is "Ashland,"-that he now resides on that
-plantation, and is one of the wealthiest planters
in that State. We know that his name is Hen
ry-we' think it probable, that when a boy he
was called " Harry," and-as he lives in the
western country, we see no great impropriety
in his being called by those who would he Ca.
mnliar with him " Harry of the -West." We
must admit, howeyer, that it smacks somewhat
of demagogueismniand is, in'our view, so far
Sobjectionable. We think such things in bad
pir. Jefferson called '"Tom of the Mountains,"
though'he lived in the- montains of.Western
Virginia; or to have-heard .his praises sing to.
the tite of "-Clare de, ithen-:old. Firgine
never tire." Nor, do .e:iiotr hear our own
Calhoun called " N 'arinerinck,""or the "Mill
Boy of Lang Cane." Wlio would not feelthat
it was almost desecration thus to'designate this
great political philosopber of the nineteenth
century-? Whilst the Jurity of his principles.
the loftiness of is patriotism, and the brilliancy
of his genius, can :nekver render it necessary.
that he. or his friends, should ever resort to
uch vile means orcatching popular applause;
his high personal character, moral elevation
and dignified manners, will always secure hint
from the. application of such epithets,'as can t
not be agrenble to any one who has a proper
respect either for himself or for our people.
Butto return from; our-digression, we really
1wish to know Mr. Clay's views upon the points I
suggested. We wish to know the opinions of i
the Honorable Henry Clay, upon the great
questions that are now agitating the country
of that Henry Clay. who for the last quarter of 1
a century, has wielded more personal inflnence'
with the exception perhaps of General Jack.
son, in giving direction to the politics of this
country, than any other man in it,-of that
Henry Clay, whose inmense personal popular
ity, powers of persuasion' and decision of char
acter. will enable him, if elected, to save or ut
terly destroy the South. -We'desire to know
his opinions-will you give themeto us?
We would add another to the questions we
have already asked. What are Mr. Clay's opi
nions as to the annexation of Texas?
Should you still decline answering the inter.
rogatories, will it be asking too much of yon.
to request that you will publish this, and the
questions contained i n our last-piece, in your
useful Journal ?
We trust. howover. that you will not longer
withhold the information sought. We cannot
believe that you-are supporting Mr. Clay with- e
out knowing his principles. If you know them, I
and they are such as should recommend him to s
the people of South Carolina. why not pubiish I
theta? If on the contrary, the principles of Mr.
Clay and his party are such, as you know the
people, of this State, will hold to be dangerous
to liberty, subversive of the Constitutioniand
destructive of our dearest rights: you will not,
I am sure you cannot conceal them.
For the Advertiser.
Mr. EDITOR :-The following little fragment i
on Novel Raading, no doubt the impromptu et- I
fusion of some idle moment, was stolen not
long since from ayoutig lady'sscrutoiri. Should
you think it worthy of a place in your columns,
I take upon myself the responsibility of its pub
lication. If it may have a tendency to inspire
proper notions. and create a judicious taste,
among your fair readers, in this most fascina- r
ting kind of mental improvement,I shall feel
myselfsufficiently rewarded for the risk I in
in giving to the public an unfinished produc
ttion, without the caseni of its antl er.
Opinion is not doctrine, and I call upon no
one to acknowledge the suggestions which I i
shall here make. rather fnom observation than
experience, on the subject of " Novel Reading."
It will not be presumed that Ishall lay down
any dogmas on the subject. which has employ.
ed the criticisms of some of the wisest of the
age; but the field of discussion, though so long
open, has never yet been won, and the few
thursts, like a child playing with a giant's fea
thers, which I shall wake, will certainly not
decide the contest.
Of the several motives, which induce people
to read, the three mnoht prominent are, curiosity,
instruction, and amusement. To the first of
the-se, Novel reading is certainly indebted for
its origin; but whether the two last purposes
have been accomplished by the gratification of
that early inspired passion, is yet to be deter- I
wined by an investigation of the subject under
consideration. In order to this, it would, per
lhaps, be best to inquire into the nature of No
uels. A general definition has been given of
them. purporting that Novels arejictions or the
truth dressed in fiction; but'to speak more to
our present purpose. I would say, that Novels
are dramatic representations of human nature,
illustrative of the manners and characters of
different ages and countries, and written with
tl'e moral view of bring out the most fhvorable
able light, the good and beantifli parts of crea
tion. So far as they are copied from nature,
they present lessons worthy of being studied, as
we ate taught thereby, the various changes in
the tide of human feeling-the causes which
produces them-the manner in which they act
-and the results thereof. We are, moreover,
incited by the examples set before ns, to emu
late excellences rendered so attractive, and to
avoid inconsistencies, which are placed in so
obvious, anid yet so degrading a light. The
common error of Novel writers has been that of
using the Painter's license, to cast an invisible
and magic veil over the defects ofthe landscape;
and hence arises the supposition that Novel
readers look in vain ont earth, for that perfection
over which they dream in Novels. I am aware,
that the minds of somie, where warm iimaginia
tion pieponderates over a weak judgment. have
been inmred in this respiect by 'he superstitions
romances and silly love tales of a former pe
riod; bumt a standard NoveL of the present time
is the censor of the age; and plac-ed in the
bands of a discriminatinig reader, is an excel
lent - critique" on mind and nmaners.
Whilst thus urging that Novel are neither
altogether useless nor unsafe, I will admit that
their dreamy fas.:iiation and abstract tendency
have sometimes acted, like the "ignisfatuus,"
in drawing the young mindl from the sober
pathts of duty and science; but this defect htas
been owing ton the natural weakness hefore
mentioned; and it would be well if sutch per
sons were taught to use them as a boy does his I
whip and top, only as a relaxation from sterner
studies. Thus used, they have been known toi
produce on the mental a corresponding effecta
which exercise on the phtysiqal system, giving a
healthful tone and vigor to the mind. He who
does not stop on the h~ill-side of science. to gath
er a few flowers, miay reach the tolp sotoner, it .
is true, but it will be with a rugged brow, and
a care wvorn heart.
Perhaps the light attractive guise in whichi
Novels are written, is their best recommnenda
tioni, innaniucli as they irmpart lesson~s of wig
dow to the amusemnents of our leisure hours,
just as in iovtng through a garden of flowers.,
we receive mastrtiction from the hee, and see a
moral in the butterfly ; but their superior exists
in searching the recesses of human thought, I
and teaching us the arts by which its wvorkings
may be discovered-by linking in-the chain of
events the destmnies of men. and showing ns I
their- mutual dependence and relations. Thought
history teaches us how men hrae acted, Novels
iprepare tus to anticipate how they weilL act, by
illustrating the principles of action after the
most fan-iliar demonstrations. It is not to be I
denied, that there issome danger of forming too
high an estimhte of man's nature by these re
ly like spots on. the sun which do not impair
his brightness; but this objection may be lost
in that chiarity which enjoins, "biding -the
rail:s we see;' and if nOut thus lostat least tog
crated by the elevation of principle and refine
ment of feeling itinspires, and by the perfection
it supposes, ot'which human nature s capable.
Novels, like theatric exhibitions, impart ideas
ifgrace and elegance, and awaken the relish
:f taste to the keenest sensibilities. A look, a
word, a tone. a flower has its peculiar signifi
:ance; but these is blending with it such drea
ny fastidiousness,. so much ,abstract theory,
hat the Novel critic, though the best oferities,
.an scarcely be accounted for practical good
ate, and yet for the formation of style and
ianners, there is no better school. Here fancy
nd imagination have worked up the materials
iflenrning into.their most fascinating forms;
Ind it-is just as notch' impossible for the sus
eptible wind to pass through a Novel without
eceiving an impression of its character, as it
s for the sun to leave no trace on the opening
lower. Thus reflection will be formed, and a
ritical enquiry into the language and clarac
ers instituted. which lead on to the proper up
reciation of the beauties of a writer, and end
a the imitation of his style.
Thus we have come to the conclusion that
'iorels very well answer the three general pur
toesof reading. though we would by no means
ay, that they fulfil these purposes. Having
poken or their influence nit the mind and man
erc, it may not be amiss to say a word or two
f their general influence. Perhaps I might be
orrecting myself to say, that an ignorant per
Ot should never read a Novel. But hence has
risen the dangers ofits seductions, We must
mnow Vhat Iruth is, ere we tamper with fiction,
r. in other words. we must prepare our vessel
"ith, judgment, ere we trust it on the sea of
rnagmsation; to those, however, who reading
or amusement. look upon Novels as the real
nitations of human actions, honest, but mi.
nic representations of hunmn life, and who,
Iwelling on the beautiful and fair of nature,

-A .Remarkable Cure.-We witnessed a
few days since, a-successful ermaintion
in the treatment of a case of Double Club
foot. A boy, ahout 15 years of age, who
had. been from infancy afflicted with tbis
deformity, was placed by his parents after
many ineffectual efforts for relief, under
the treatment of Dr. L. A. Dugas of our
city. It was a singular case. The feet
were turned inwards; the heel was eleva
ted several inches from the ground; the soles
of the feet turned upwards and backwards,
and the whole weight of the body rested,
when the boy waa,standing on properly,
the outer side of the feet. .When moving,
the labor of lifting one foot over the other,
and the unnatural position in which they
rested upon the ground, rendered the boy
and object of commiseration to all who saw
him. He was under treatment for several
weeks. A successful surgical operation
soon enabled the boy to place his feet in
their proper position, and a piece of
mechanism, which confined his feet for sev
eral hours each day to this position, enabled
him finally to move naturally and with al
most perfect ease.
We notice this the more readily as we
understand it is among the first of such
cases in which the treatment has termin
ated successfully in our State.
Died, on the i7th inst.. at Edgewood, the re
sidence of Col. F. W. Pickens, Mrs. MARIA E.
CALxowro, wife of Col. James Edwaid Cal
honn, of Abbeville.
The deceased was in the 28th year of her
age, and death in selecting her ott as his
victim, has torn from us one, around whom
all the tenderest and most delicitte affection of
life were entwined, for her meek and quiet spi
rit, mingled with interesting accompishments,
made her a blessing and an ornament to the so
ciety in which she moved. She bore her lin
gering and very painful illness, with the forti
tude of a true christian, and with the cheerful
ness of a pure and a perfect lady.
She died as she had lived, reposing npon the
bosom of her Savior, and!that day can never
come, when her devoted -husband and those to
whom she was near and dear. 'shall ever forget
to drop a tear'on her tomb.
