press our views on a question, in our opin
ion, of greater importance to the United
States, and particularly the southern por
tion thereof, than any which the country
has been called to ilecide, since the De
claration of ludependence-that, if there
over was a time imperiously demanding
the sacrifice of.all party viens and univer
sal devotionto the public safety, that time
is the present, when the most imminent
danger threatens the tranquility and con
tinued union of the confederacy.
"That we regard the people of Texas
as our brethren in every respect, but chief
ly emigrants from our own country, who
carried with 'them to the far West the
same love of freedom, and the institutions
for its preservation, which distinguish the
Unied States-that whatever may be their
destiny, we can but feel a lively interest
in their welfare. and sympatbise with
them, as we have dpne, in all the events
of their fMture history.
" That we consider the re-annexation
of Texas a matter of national policy sus
tained by the interest and honor of the
nation, and which should be regarded by
all-as a question, whether British or Amer
ican feeling and interest shall predominate
among American freemen -that, being
purely a national question, we deprecate
.the introduction of party feeling on an oc
casion which calls for the unanimous co
operation of all patriotic and honest hearts
in securing the immediate arrangement of
the Treaty stipulations.
-" That we highly appreciate the public
motives of the President of the United
States in effecting the Texas treaty, and
honor the prudence and-patriotism which
led to its proposal-that we believe, to the
fullest extent, the importance of the views
presented in his message. and the neces
. aity of immediate annexation, if ye intend
to thwart the designs of our enemies and
maintain the integrity ofour Union.
"'That, if the American Senate should
'prove. recreant to its trust, and should from
party motives, or mere sectional jealousy,
reject the Treaty,'we believe the whole
country, indignant at the outrage, will rise
in mass and demand what is alike essen
tial to its interest and honor."
Texas Meeting in Chatham County,
(Ga.)-A very large meeting, irrespective
of party, of the citizens of Chatham Co.,
(Ga.,) was held in Savannah on Wednes

similar in character to those which have
been adopted in other parts of the South
era country. The Georgian remarks :

From the Globe, May 17
May 16, 1844.
Gentlemen : You will do me the jus
tice to publish in the next Globe the en
closed letter, voluntarily offered me by
my colleague, and with it my asservation
that, during fifteen years' service in the
House of Representatives. I bhve- failed
asseldom as any other member of that
body, be he whom he may, to give my vote
on any question directly or indirectly con
nected with the tari8'policy of the country.
I am your obedient servant,
Alessrs. Blair & Rives.
SENATE CH AME ER,
Mlay 16, 1844.
Sir: I have seen in the Globe of this
mnorning an allusion to the time and cir
cumstanlces under which you resignedyour
seat in the House of Representati-ves and1
took your seat in the Senate of the Uni
ted States. Th'e article in the Globe does
you injustice. I know, from frequent con
versations with yon, that your wish and
previous initention was to remain in the
House of Representatives until the tariff'
was finally disposed of in that body. But,
when the treaty for the annexation of
Texas became the subject of discussion in
the Senate, I suggested to you the pro
priety, in- my opinion, of your taking your
seat in the Senate without further delay ;
and although you agreed with me that the
Texas question was one of paramount
importance, yet 1- feel convinced that you
left the House before the vote was taken
upon the tariff' with great reltuctance; and
that you wvere only induced to do so from
an overruling sense of public duty, grow
ing out of my conviction, and' the convic
tion of your other friends in the Senate,
that the executive action of the Senate on
matters connected with the.Texas treaty
must necessarily commence, as it did com
mence, on the very day you took your

Interesting Decision.---The General
Methodist Conference, now in session- in
the city of New York, on Saturday last
made an important decision touching the
right of ministers in that persuasion'to hold
slaves. Tbe facts are thus briefly stated
in the New York Tribune:
At the last meeting of the Baltimore
Annual Conference, Francis A. Hardin, a
travelling preacher, was suspended from
his Ministerial functions for refusing to
emancipate five slaves which had come
into his possession by marriage with Miss
Susan Swan, of St. Mary's county', Md.
From this decision he appealed to the
General Cotference, and after devoting
nearly four days to an inyestigation of the
case and a hearing of the parties, that
body on Saturday last rendered a verdict
agirming the decision of the Baltimore
Conference, by a vote of] 17 to'. 56, thus
settling the principle that a slaveholder. in
a State where the laws do not render
enieucipation impossible, ought not to be
ordained as a preacher in the Methodist
Oregon.-The St. Louis Democrat
says, that about five btndred individuals
have already collected at Independence
and vicinity, for the purpose of emigrating
to Oregon. They expect to be joined' in
the course of the present month by about
fifteen hundred more persons, who are
from amongst the most hardy pioneers to
Wisconscin, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa.
The IWeather.--For some time past the
country. has suffered for want of rain. On
the river lands, especially, we understand,
the growth of corn has been much retarded,
and in many places destroyed by the grub
and other insects. Ot Sunday last, how
ever, we were visited by a refreshing rain,
and the clouds at present indicate contin
ued showers. The Cotton prospects are
favorable, although the stands in some in
stances, are deficient, yet, on the whole,
we have every reason to expect abundant
crops. - The Wheat looks well and is for
ward for the season.-Cheraw Ga:etuc.
The Brig Francis Lord.-We had a
terrible British outrage reported as having
been perpetrated upon the coast of Africa
which went the rounds of the papers some
four or six weeks ago. We published at
the time the fact, that the owners of the
brig had received letters from the Captain
dated after the outrage was committed:
which made no mention of the affair. The
brig has now returned, and Capt. Brown
states that a musket ball was fired from
the British brig Alert, and the ball passed
over the Francis Lord; that the comman
der of the Alert immediately hailed the
F. L. and said she perceived that a ball
had been fired, that it was not designed,
and that he regretted the accident and
would inquire into the cause of it. After
arriving at 'Sierra Lone, the commander
of the Alert came on board the F. L. and
stated that the accident happened through
the carelessness of the gunner who had
been severely punished for it, and he made
all the apology which could he asked of
any officer or gentleman. Capt. Brown
did not mention in his letters, because he
was entirely satisfied, and counted the in
cident as not deserving further notice.
A Cotton Factory is about to be estab
lished in Buffalo. Under the extravgant
duties imposed by the present Tariff, such
tmanufactories will be establishted all over
the country. Millions of -capital will be
invested, multitudes of persons will turn'
their attention from other pursuifs to this,
the business will be overdone, the markets
will be glutted, a crash 1yill come, and
thousands will he ruined. ThIs will be a
just retrib~ution for attempting to enrich
ote class of otur fellow citizens at the ex
pense of others.-N. Y. Jour. of Corn.
Murder Will Out.-We learn verbally
a strange story of a murder said to have
been committed at or near Chippeuva. A
Captain Brunt~lage, who some . years ago
run a little steamboat Victory between this
port and Chippew~a, and who has since re
sided at or near that place, is the party
implicated. A woman and child were
living with him. Some time ago, but how
long we are not informed, the woman, who
had somse six or eight hundred dollars in
cash, and her child disappeared, but no
suspicions were aroused, until one morn
ing w hen the sexton wvent into the grave
yard and discovered a new made grave.
He wondered who dug it, and the incident
giving rise to some remarks, it at last came
to the ears of a half crazy fellow, called
"old-Moses," living in the nteighborhood,
who related the following story. He said
he was lying in the grave yard the night
before, when Brundage brought in a wo
man and child and buried them. The
grave was immediately opened, the bod
ies of the woman and child were found in
it. Brundage was forthwith arrested, and
is now in the jail at Niagara awaiting his
trial for murder.--Buffalo Cor-. Ada.
A SNAKE STORY.
Lynching .Extraordinary.-A case of
lynching basn recently occurred in Anson
Co., (N. Carolin~a.) of quite a novel and
interesting character. The parties enga
ged, were two large coach whip Snakes,
the assailants, and a worthy. citizen of An
son, the recipient. The latter was traveling
through the woods when, towards night-fall
he was attackedt by two enormous snakes,
who wound themnselves- round his body,
and inflicted on him a summary and ex
tremely severe punishment. He was of
course, dreadfully frigbtened, and after
feeling in his pocket, in vain, for his knife,
succeeded at length in choking one of his
assailants, which having disengaged froip
his person, he flung some distance from
hint, when the; other left him. lie was
severely cnt, by tbe lashes inflicted upon
him, and still remains on his person the
marks. The above has been related to urn
by gentlemen on whese veracity we fully
rely, as a fact, and we record it for the
singularity of the occurrence, challenging
at. the same time the belief of our readers
in the truth of the story.-Cherato Gazette.

Editor of the Hamburg &mrnal :
SIR-Yotlr last paper has been received and
has been carefully considered. if your reply,
to us, was intended as a specimen of wit, we
will not deny that you have been eminently
successful, the severity of your satire being
only exceeded by its refinement. We think
it, however, somewhat unfortunate for your
cause, that you should haye selected this
occasion to indulge your genius in that way;
for though we inay attribute your reply
to the more superabundance of brilliancy;
others may be so uncharitable, as to suppose
that it resulted fiom your inability to defend
either your own course, or the principles of
your candidate. In short, that it was a mere
device to avoid replying to questions you could
not answer. The world you know is not char
itable. We are led to this remark, too, from
the impression which your course has made
upon our own mind. We are not, we must
confess, entirely free from the suspicion that
you do find some little difficulty in answering
our questions, and, at the same time, maintain
ing your consistency. When we think of the
dilemma in which youi are placed, we some
times almost regret that we ever began this
correspondence, and we would, even now,
drop it if you.would only open your columns
for a fair discussion of the great iqdestions at
issue. The truth is, we do not, for reasons
which we will explain, blame'you for support
ing Mr. Clay; but, only for the manner in which
you do it. We believe, i'eover, that till we
began this cotrespondence, you were not con
scious of any inconsistency in trning from Mr.
Calhoun to him. We look upon your present
support of Mr. Clay as the result of accident
and want of politicar information, rather than
the want of integrity: In a fit of honest indig
nation, against Mr. Van Buren, for intrigteing
Mr. Calhoun out of the nomination'by the Bal
timore Convention, you declared you'rself in
favor of Mr. Clay, without thinking of his prin
ciples. We suppose, that, if the'trath had been
known, you had been supporting Wl. Calhoun
without any particular reference to i. . You
went for him, as you would have gone for any
friend, who was a candidate for Tax Collector,
or the Captaincy of a Beat Company, 6ecause
you liked him, and not because you saw in
him, the embodiment of a set of principles,
which would, you believed, if carried out, con
duce to the p~ermanence of the Union, und the
prosperity and happiness of the whole country.
'Twas the man not the mneasure' yo' were
supporiing, a'nd such we believe ari the feel
ings which now influence you in su'pporting
Mr. Clay. You go for him, because you like
hitii, and dishke Van Buren, unconiscio'ts that
by so doing, you' are assisting in the establish
ment' of a systemn of policy, which must prove
highly detrimet-al to' our interests, subversive
of the Constitation, and, destructive' perhaps,
of the g'avernment itself. If we be'not incor
rect ha this opinion, you m'ay, in one seneid of
the word, be eaid not to have a'dted ando'nsis
tently.' For, we suppose'you' to' ha94.t een
influenced by the same motises i'n suppoi-ting
both Mr. Clay and Mr. Calhoun-piersonal
predelictibmi. This is the ohuly explanation,
which our confidence in your integrity,. will
permit us to make ofrthe apparent patadox of
changing, in one week', from the dupport of
one of the'se distinguished iudividuals,to that of
the other, who are the-verj political antipodes
of each other. It is dangerous ini polities,/as in
private affairs; to trust to th'e guidance of ifas
sion and prejudice, instead pf settled principles
and views'of sound policy; and he' who dos'
must expect to commit many errors; and, if in
public life,' to be frequently subjected to the
mortificatiozf ofseeing themh'esposed. -Should
this be your sittuation, it is your mis'or'tun
not our fault. But, be that as it may, you may
rest asured that'you cant gain nothing by lon
ger silence. Thetcarges have been-made, and
if you do not answei-, they will liei thken pro
conafeaso against both you and your candIdate.
W7e will only add; in this connexion,' that we
shall, on your own acdoubt, regret to learn
that our surmise, as to your motives, for sup
portinig Mr: Clay, is incorrect'y for wa would
not willingly believe, that you know Mr. Clay's
principles, and support him because you ap
prove of them. In odr'oinort; it is better to
be weak than criminal. The leaders' of his
party, in the South, who understand-his poli
cy, and appreciate its fatal tendency, and yet
support him, and attempt, by appeals to poput
har prejudice, to blind the people to their own
interests, deserve, in our opinion, the deepest
condemnation, and the bitterest denunciation.
They ",know the right, and yet thme wrong pur
sue." But you, we have never Classed among
these-we have believed your's to be "an er
ror of the head, and not of the beart," and have,
therefore, exCused much that would otherwise,
have deserved deep and severe censurb. This
belief, ad our kind feelings towards you per
sonally, render it peculiarly unpleasant to us,
to be forced to inflict pain upon you, as we
feel we do, by continuing this correspondence.
On our own account, therefore, as well as. on
your's, wve wish you wouild either frankly ac

We will hazard the assertion, that it is the most
extraordinary .production, under the circum.

urging upon us to support Mr. Clay. We sti

to join you, heart and hand, if you could re

are unintelligable-many of which are inde.

For the Advertiser.
Mr. EnIro.-We saw with pleasure; an
editorial in you last number, as well as in one
of your preceding numbers, calling upor the
citizens of.the District, to hold a meeting on
next Sale Day.
The object of that meeting, of course, will
be to pass resolutions relative to the Annexa
tion qf Texas. Annexation has non become a
question of deep excitement throughout the
whole Union.. The people of the United States
have not yet become so dead to the truest in
terest of their country, as to reject the finet
portion ofthe habitable globe, when voluntarily
offered to them. Thank God, Henry Clay and
Martin Van Buren are notable to lull the whole
country into passive obedience to their will,
and total indifference to the glory of our re
public. Public meetings are being held front
one extremity of the Union to the other, assert
ing the Independence of Americans; and eve
ry newspaper inimical to Great Britain and the
fanaticism of Abolitionists, is filled with resotu
tions calling for the immediate Annexation of
Texas, and denouncing the treachery' of those
politicians who have shown themselves capa
ble of sacritiuing not only the lItest interests of
their country. but even its honor and glory, for
their own political aggrandizement.
Let us meet then, on next sale day, ind at
least complain of our wroug, if we cannotre
dress them. A modification or reduction of the
Tariff of 1842, has not yet taken place, but has
been most shamefully neglected, and the rights
of the South have been treated with profound
est contempt. If, however, we enter fully and
zealously into the dischaige of our duty, we
are led to believe, it is not in Henry. Clay and
Martin Van Buren, the Abolitionisti and M.an
atfacturrers of the North, or even the British Par
liament itself, to cheat us out of our dearest
rights, and to rob the American republic of the
finest portion of territory the dun efet ilione
We hope we sall see the whole Districi at
the Court House on next Monday, ready and
willing to express their views on the great
questions thirt are now agitating the country,
and their strongest indignation at the donduct
of those public men, who have shown them
selves so utterly destitute ofevery sense of pub.
lie duty, as to reject the choicest -boon ever of
fered to this country, from ulo other motives
under heaven, then' to' giatify their insatiable

" Annexation" to a man-'-soily, and sore of
the Jadiestoo;'-but wlat! shall we go away
thirty mires to a rieeting-leave our farns anc
other avocations this busy season. for three
days, to speak ouf synipathy for a suffering
peoplei This would be puraiseworthy, byuti
would require moulething uiore thani the sorrou
that the Frerchin'* expressed to th'e own'er o
a drowned h'orse-his' alr-while others were
standing round with 6uplifted hiands and' 6per
mouths, speaking their so'rrow, ho put a live
dollar bill into the poor man'a hand, and ths
addressed t1:e gaping crowd, "Me sorrow bin
wid on'e five dollar,. The F'tenchaman's sor
row was heartfelt; or, if! might be allowed the
expression, it was tangible. , Well, now, I say
our sympathy must be greater thtan the French
man's, even to get a chance to speak our sorrov

Court House,.threoe days time, and five dollar
of the needful, it matters not how asuch the
citizens of the Saluda Regim'ent areii: favor o
" Annexation,". they mire th~irs debarred from

much' they are in favor of the. Arnexation' o
Texas'to the United States, they are' more ii
favor of a Divisiqn of Edgefield Jbistrict. I
mat'tra not how far their sympathiu may rut
for the citizens of Texas, they feel the tmutl
and a ppositeness of the provrerb, that "cleatrits
should begin at home." Therefore all the idli
time, and surplus funds that we'have, will be
more fidy appropriated',, adeording to the law
of nature. in ~u rthering ou'r planito obtain the

The truth is, Mr. Edit'ir, the subjec t of' "Di

Thiis is an unmanly insiuation. It is not tha

Asto the Barbecue at Elchadsanvillb, dti the

in tinie,-I had come to the condilusiorr that i
did not suit the people, and of course the idea
was tir be dropped. It is too'late ntmw to act a

Coton.-There - is. no alteration to notice
from last weok's. prices. Fair cottons go off
readily at ruling rates. whiledescriptions below
these are dull sale, and in many anstatets there
is a difficulty in pushing them off. Our quo.
tations are from 44 to 7 cts-principal sales
51 to 61 cis., with a dull market.-Journal.
COLUMNDI, May 23.
Cotton.-There continues to be something
doing in this article-mostly in store lots-and
prices range from 5 to 74 cis., extremes. Very
little, however, brings over 74 fromf: wagons.
AUGUSTA; May 23.
Cotfon.-Since our last notice of the trade,.
the cotton market has assumed a duller aspect,
dwing in a great measure to the unwillingness
of holdefs to make conceasions, and the advi.
cee daily eipected from Liverpool by the Bri
tannia, which is to bring dates to the 4th of this
month. The stocks in the American ports
have been reduced pretty largely, more so,
however, in the Atlantic ports, and the receipts.
every where are very light. The receipts in
this marljet are not worth mentioning; the
stock is still large, though the shipments to Sa
vannrli have been somewhat large. The prices
quoted in our review of last iThursday have
been barely maintained; the exttemes are 4& to
7 cents; and the sales effected, which were
few, have been at prices ranging from 5 to 64
cents. In the present condition of our market,
it is impossible to give any correct account of it.
