es|i. Rditors:--A-is,.ustl on the firs
bf May, 1t'e young ladies of oar village. I
:would wish to believe, had a pleasant little
arty, and- passed a few hourstogether, in
a most charming and. agreable.manner.
The day was fair, and the sun was
frig,ht, and beauty was brighter still; and
every thing but one conspired to make
their ceebration entertaining and amusing
}n the highest degree. I assure you Messrs.
Editors, that that one thing wanting, was
not the light hearts and buoyant spirits of
s'weet sixteen-it was not the grace and
loveliness. of youthful, innocence--it was
not tbe overflowing.soul. and the desire to
dispense the blessings of peace and happi
ness. and joyous mirth to all around ; but
it was,,the presence of some delightful
yung fellows, some gallant young me', to
have called into exercise, and to have been
the happy recipients of those grateful
charms, which otherwise, would have
been lavished on the cold and "idle wind
that regards them not." A girl without a
bov, a woman without a man. is like the
tender flower of May, deprived of the ge.
Dial influence of the sun-its beautiful
tints lie concealed in the bud, and its per
fume and its fragrance wastes away and
dies without tasting the lovely breath of
I could not have conceived of, a May
party without boys-and I think such an
invention is truly refined. and worthy dft he
'age. There is something about it rather
prudish. I am afraid there are some an
cient maidens in our quiet little village;
and if there are, as much as I love gallant
ry. I warn them in time, to beware.
- I'Twere better they had never been born,
than to incur 'lie vengeance of my wvaked
wrath." I heard some time nno, of a
queer sort of a convention of some of the
softer sex in our town, and I feared then,
that we were on the eve of a revolution
we now realize the fact. I will say one
more word, by way of admonition. If I
have the least intimation agtin o1 the or
ganization of an old maids society in the
broad limits of this village, I will take a
torch in' one hand & a trumpet in the other,
and I will explore every street. and latie,
and alley within this incorporation, and I
will call forth every thing in the shape of
a bachelor, and I will form one of the
coinpletest old bachelor's cluns. or anti
alt-maid's socie tis ever read of in history.
" A word to the wise is suflicient."
But I will conclude thia short descrip
tion,by observing.that the Queen of May,
was regularly crowned. and looked as
sweeens the blosso-ns that adorned her
diadem. Her ministers too, were decked
out in hanidsgme colors, ttnd resembled the
most perfect little angels. The usual cete
monies were performed with grace and
dignity. and the little girls dispersed with
sad little hearts.

and then gathering ht with the greate t la

pondenicy and gloaar seems already to be
hanging over the whale of our State. We
are already so poorly recompensed here
for our labor, that about half of our citl
:ens are unemployed.-indo-stry languishes
with us-the energies of our people are
-- dissipated in idleness-and the whole face
of the State presents a mnelancholy spectit
cie of lands uncultivated-Of itllues to
decay-and of a population sunk in itdu
eitie. and wretchedness, and pauperismn.
I speak as tine having sme acquain

bi the fatal truth, wrhenm I say, that the
prfound apathy that now reigns over our
people, is' truly alartsintg tu every toan
who has a proper conception of their condi

Shall they be suffered to continue in their
p resent state of listlessness and inactivtty?
I ......, it-,nw soenmaond spirit .wilt-rule it
otherwise. I would rather see aty other
calamity ihat could befall us. I would pre
fer that our State should be desolated by
foreign invaders. Give us anything under
the sun rather than the want of. employ
ment; give us famine; pestilence, or blood
shed, or the sorest of the afflictions of Hea
ven, in the place of a negative evil, so ut
terly dlestructive of every thing like hu
man improvement. and so wholly repug

our institutions, and to the safety and
prosperity of a republican form or govern
In passing through this, and some oth
ers of the Southern States, a stranger
would be completely shoiebl at the incil
culable numbers of hearty, robust young
men, who follow no bccupatihn under
heaven, but smoking cigars. di inking bran
dy, and, loafing and lopnging about the
different cutes, and towns. and villages.
Indeed. it has become so common in this
part of the world, for a gentlemnan of pro
perty and education to do nothing. that it
is aloist disreputable, even for a poor
man. to labor for hmis support. As for a
yoube man of wealth and stanling in the
first circles, to endeavour by his assiduity
and industry to improve his estate, such a
thing is scarcely dreamed of. If he were
to presumte to adopt a course of conduct so
so absolnt. lv vulgar, be would be shunned
and mocked at by all his gay companions.
Geutleneti of pleasure, and. gentlemen of
leisure. with their lily white hands, are
the duly current stock amodngs us, and
the only stock that is acceptable at our
markets of manhood and beauty. One of
our dashing belles would he horror-struck
at the sight ofa pairof sonhurt hands, or
of a hronied, dad manly, and noble brow.
Even in srad own little village of Edg

every thing that is manly by any village
in the South.) and in all the villages of
my acquaintance. in the State, of a soft,
and clear, and hptmy day. whetithey anat

The very extreme of their enterprise,
scarcely hurries theta beyond a game..of
whist. or lue, or brag. it would ho n'iiib
better for them if they would gamble ijt
tIe, and exhibit at least some.sympijs'of
life atd spirit. I firmly believe, that even
that abominable vice woild-be less sinful

by a bountiful Creator. . .. .
If our people .ould he induced to take
an interest in the establishntottt of manu
factories, and the rearing of manufacturing
-towns amongst them. it might stir theta
up to some activity. It might at least.
excite in them a spirit of speculation. and
lia1 in rey humble opition would be fully
worth an ellirm. T1hose who still have in.
dustry and enterprise enough to be addict
ed to play, could play at higher and more
decent gamwes than sevenutp andfaro bank/.
Even ii it should tutrn out that our State
is nut adaupted to manmufacturing purposes,
whlichi is not at all pro'bable, the money
lost in the speculations and enterprises
cotmmenced, would be mney wrell expen
ded, onder all citeumstances otf the case.
In the name of God, I pek .whtat do our

and itnfinitely more pertniciouis int its cant

Bum, I ha-d red~rved fomi the cojicloision
oft this communi'at ion. ahtiter cotidmera
tion in favor of introdingmm manufaetures
amongst us, which has always struck me
as bemng of much more than common' ti
portance. Every iodi'vidutal loves to be
independent. and to feel as'securs wvittuub
hitself, as his n.eani will allow-icde
pendence tmakes him proud and happy,
and gives birth to the noblest feelings end
the noblest sentiments that arnimate the hu'
men heart. Inuependence too, in a state
or nation, is cert ainly the greatest blessing
that God in his goodness could bestow ,up
ont in; and te more perfect atnd complete
that indepeedence, the more perfect and
salutary becomes the blessing to the ped
pe. Now it does seem to me. that weo of
South Carolina and Georgia. ought to be
able to furnish for ourselves from ihe pro*
ducts of our own industry, every necessary
article of consumption that we could re
quire. We ought not to depend upon the
North, or the So'uth, the East, or the West.
for our foodor raiment, or any thing we
use. Our lands are fertile--our pasturage
is good-our climate w ill raise the pro

any kingdom or state on earth; With the
materials abounding in all parts of these

quatntities to be found, We ebuld, raise..and

luxury of life that the most fastidions tastes
could dermiard. We might le, perfecily

tshamed. any longer, to ask others for ar
ticle which we could raise onrselves, and
for the obtaining of which,. we are coam
pelled to pay a tax that would support a
little kingdom. and thai would line our
states from the mountains to the seas, with
the most costly manufacturing. establish
