EDGEFIELD Cs H.
WSBssDAYr, OCTOBER 4, 1845.
COLD WEATHER. -
For several days after the rain which recent
ly fell, the weather was quite cool. The tem
perature was like that of November. Since
October set in, the temperature has been
We learn from our exchanges that these
destructive insects are making serious ravages
upon the grass, grain, fodder and vegetation
generally, in seveial of the upper Districts.
We understand that a worm or eatipillar of a
destructive character, has made its appearance
likewise in Edgefeld.
OUTRAGE AT LEXNGTW19 C. R.
We learn from a commu nication in the
Temperance Advocute of the Ist inst., that
the Court House at Lexington was forcibly
entered, and that the bust df Judge O'Neal
which was placed in a room in the building,
was taken out by some person unknown, and
carried into the street and treated in a shocking
, manner. Great excitement among the friends
of the Judge, was produced by this affair.
We perceive from the advertisements of
Messrs. J. J. Howard, H. L. Jeffers, Pearson
& Walker, merchants in Hamburg. that an
abundance of corn will be kept constantly on
hand to supply the *ants of the planters and
others. If necessary it is probable that other
gentlemen in Hamburg will also keep corn
enough for the public. In all appearances,
there is no probability that corn will bring an
extraordiansy price in Augusta, Hamburg,
Columbia or Charleston, during the year.
We in common with the rest of the communi
ty, feel under great obligation to these con
mercial houses, which have taken such prompt
and efficient means to meet the pressing ne
cessities of the people in this season of suffer.

CONFESSION OF JON. B. GOUCH,
We hasten to lay before our numerous
readers the confession of John B. Gough,
made at Roxbury, before a c6mmittee of
Mr. Gough appeared before the com
mittee at the hour appointed. His ap
pearance was much as heretofore, with
the exception ofa fallen and softened ex
hression of countenance, which became
him on so peculiar an occasion. Having
been requested to speak, he gave utter
ance to the following confession. which
was pronounced in a firm and manly but
modest tone -

soda was drawn for me ; but the man had

Cordial as a substitute. Such was the
peculiar effect of this cordial upon me,
that I lost the use of my reasoning facul

ardent spirits revived in me, as if some

[a passing Lothian's corner, I met a
young woman, an acqaintance of some
years' standing who was tying her shoe.
Being dark, I accidentally touched her el

and called me by my name; I stopped,
and after a moment's conversation, she
requested me to call with her and see a
fallen sister whom she was desirous of
rescuing from the abyss of ruin.
As it is a part of my mission to redeem
the lost, and to raise the fallen, I gladly
consented, although myself standing on

and the sister of myffemale companion.
Afler a tetidious conversation. a feeling
hardly to be described in words came over
me-the burning, raging appetite for li

the house only added to the flame. I gave
money to a young woman, and procured

THE TABLES TURNED ON TE Ano
We notcied some time ago, that the
survant maid of the family of our fellow
citizen, W. B. Hodason, Esq., had been
brought up before a Judge at Northamp
ton, Massachusetts, under a writ of habeas
corpus. We find from the Northampton
papers, that this girl has sued the Aboli
tionists, who had thus insulted her, and
laid her damages at $1000. In default of
bail, Dr. Hudson has in, consequence been
imprisoned. The trial will come on at
the October term of Common Pleas, in
We are highly gratified that this case
has .been.hroughs I .I& U-..,. d.
mined whether a Southern gentleman
may not pass through the Northern States
unmolested by the pestilent, fanatical Ab
olitionists. Their outrages have .so long
been tolerated, that they seem to have
forgotten that the servants of the South,
and their masters, have any personal
rights in the North, During the past sum
mer, they have been particularly active
in hunting Southerners. The fact of a
Southern man being seen with a colored
servant, free or slave, has been suflicient
ground for them to apply for a writ of ha
beas corpus, to send the Sheriff to the
private apartments of the family, follow
ed by a mob of ragamuffins, and to drag
the servant by force before a Judge.
It cannot be doubted, that habeas cor
pus, in such cases, becomes an instrument
of gross outrage and oppression, instead
of being a beneficial provision: of law.
Tro check these outrages the present ac
tion was brought. Mr. Ilodgson has,
moreover, made such complaint before
the Grand Jury, that these importinent
fellows will be indicted for riot and dis
turbance of the public peace. He will,
besides, bring a civil action against the
ringleaders, for damages sustained for loss
Last year, a Mississippian was brought
back to Northampton, a distance of twen
ty miles, with a colored servant, under a
writ of habeas corpus. In this case, it
turned out that the girl, was a free woman.
It will hardly be believed that such an
outrage was perpetrated with impunity,
yet such is the fact. At Utica, in New
York, a few weeks ago, a gentleman from
North Carolina had bis nurse forcibly ta
ken from his house, but she returned to
her family with feelings of great Indigna
ion at the insult thus offered to her loyal
ty and attachment. No action in this
case was instigated against the rioters.
It is certainly high time that Southern
ers should know if such outrages are sus
taned by the lawe of the Northern States.
It impossible that they can be; and we
have no doubt, that before Mr. Hodgson
has done with these fanatics, they will
learn to respect Southern masters, and
their servants too.-Sawannah Georgian.
The New York Evening Post, speak
ingon political patronage, says that the
General Government controls the ap
pointment of 14,000 Postmasters, 14,000
Deputies, 1,000 Mail Contractors and
Agents, 2,000 Revenue and Lighthouse
officers-making in all 31,000 public de

appointments, and all of them 54,000.

A British Fleet for Oregon.-T he N.
Y. True Sun says that the British Fleet
recently noticed, "consists of two 104
gun ships, four frigates and three steam
ers. Under the guise of an experimental
squadron, it 'is, in fact, a squadron of ob
servation, sailing with sealed orders, and
having on board a full regiment for Ore

visable,-and also:a governor for, the terri
tory, should circumstrnces warrant his as
suimng that position to carry out the in
structions under which he has been sent.
Such, we learn from a gentliman. directly
from England, and who was at Spithead
at the time of the sailing'or 6e squadron,
was well understoodamong the officers
of the squadron to bethe objects of the
mission on which they were about starting.'
The Chivalry of our Fater.-During
the revolution we bad, says ibe St. Louis
American, but twenty.five vessels of war,
of every class; yetsmall as our little na
vy was, it shed a halo of glory over the
whole land. It vas stated in the British
Parliament by the first lord of the Akdmi
ralty, that the Americans. had captured
784 English vessels, worth $12,500,000.
At the close of the revolutionary war we
bad in commission 1751public and private
armed vessels, carrying 2500 guns and
14,000 brave and gallant seamen. This
force speead over every sea, and for en
terprise and daring, never was surpassed
in the history of the viorld. 'All this time
England had 200 ships actively- engagel
in the service, when the war closed she
had but 40 left.
The census of New York has been at
ken recently in accordancatwith an. Act
passed by the last Legiiihture of that
State. In seventy two-.citig and towns
the increase of population ding the last
five years has been nearly 23 per cent.
If the increase throughout the rest of the
State has been in proportion, to the in
crease of these cities and towns, the pop
ulation of New York is half a million
greater than in was in 1840.'
A Praise to the United States.-The
schooner Albert, of Boston, and recently
commanded by Capt, Woodbury, arrived
at the Navy Yard below Philadelphia,
Sunday, in charge of a Liedtenant of the
Navy and crew placed on board from the
U. S. brig Bainbridge, of the Brazil sta
tion. The A gwas abandoned to the
United States by ier commander, after
being seized a a slaver. She is now
brought in as a prize, and it is said, with
some 20 or 30 prisoners on 4arid, either
thoselbelonging to the Albert, or some
other vessels similarly situated.
A Blow is usually regarded as an indig
nity, but not always so; for we learn from
a JPitsburg paper, that in consequence of
the coal soot,,of the atmosplere of the
American Birmingham, the ladies have
rather a troublesome tilne of it in regard
to their faces. Thus saysk (be journal
aforesaid, "whenia lady's face iecei'ves a
descending Bake, her nearest friend blows
it off. To wipe it would onlimake bay
worse, and singular to say, thejgreatest
kindness showniby the ladiesto each other
is when they come to.blons."
Intermarriges and Insanity.-The Cin
cinnatti Herald contains as article on this
subject designed to show that intermarria
ges of blood relations always : tend to de
prave the race, and often lead to insanity.
It is shown that in Catholiechuntriea,
-sieu. w I. tmm,niaurrlm anneteU,
cases of insanity are very - few, while in
Protestant countries they are of frequent
occurance. Thus in Spain the proportion
of instanity is but one to seven thousand
one hundred and eighty-four, while in the
United States they are one to eight hund
The Benefits of Adverliing.-We
were informed yesterday, by one of our
Dry Goods' merchants, that one single
advertisement was the cause of his selling
to one gentleman nyve silk dresses, which
with the "Buins" amounted to upwards of
nienty dollars! This gentleman saw the
advertisement in the paper, brought it to
town with him, went to the merchant
without looking elsewhere, called for the
goods, and purchased them.
if one advertisement sells ninety dollars
worth of goods, 'who can estimato the
amount that may be sold by advertisug all
the time.-Peters burg Rebublican.
Diamnonds.-While at Gainesville last
week, we were shown two diamonds (ons
weighing, we believe, 34 and the other 3!i
carats,) which were found in a gold mine
belonging to Doctor Banks. We also
saw a more valuable Diamond found
some timeosince, and which having been
ut in the form of a brillhant, and hand
somely set in a breast- pin, is ir. possessioni
of Doctor Daniel- We learn that the

has invented a mode of working the Fire
Engine, by which it can be operated by a
less number of men, and with much great

mode. By insans of a screw, turned mn a

is lifted from the ground when required to
be set in motion, aud the hind aheels
made to serve as fly wheels.. With the
aid of a rope attached to the wheels, the
machine can be worked by 8 men or 200,
so that any person at a fire disposed to
lend a land have only to lay bold of the
rope, and assist to give motion to the fiy
wheels. Mr. M.s has obtained a patent,
and a machine on his plan is in process
of erection, and be ready for service under
