.It has been spread through the District,
whether 'designedly or not, we cannot. tell,
that our'meeting here on Saturday last, to raise

'we take this occasion to say, that such a ru

nuirable meeting; and instead of its hai-ing been
broken up in a raw. as it has been asserted,
everything was carried on in the best spirit
imaginable. To be sure. towards the conchu
sion of the proceedings, there was an animated
little discussion, but if there was anything like
an- ill naturcd controversy, we confess that we
were wholly ign'orant of the fact, although we
were present. There is a very wide difference
between speaking warmly, and speaking in
The meeting, from the first, was not intended
to be a large one, nor to be a meeting of all the
citizens of Edgefield. The call -which was
made through the papers, was addressed par
ticularly, and in so many words. to the young
men of the district, in order to give them an
opportunity of volunteering for the Mexican
war, and of consulting on the preparatory steps
to be taken, to obtain their reception by the
President of the United States; and we here
take the liberty to say, and we are proud to be
able to do so, that several young men of our ac.
quaiutance who would do honor to any section
of the country, most nobly responded to the
call made upon their patriotism and the ir valor.
The fact is, we were enabled, almost entirely
to complete that day, one of the best volan.

part of the State.. There were no signatures
obtained iri public, nor was there a call made
for them in public, but ihere was a handsome
number of as tadsome and gallant gentlemen,
as there are is, the State. who enrolled their
names as volunteers for the war. both in the
morning and in the evening of Saturday Inst.

Perry, near Perry's Cross Roads. Saluda.
The course of the wind. was about due
North, and ranuing in width, from fifty to
one hundred yards.
The following are, as near as can be
gathered, the particulars of the desolation
it spread on the premises of Mr. Perry.
His dwelling house was thrown down,
and even the sills were rmoved. The roofs,
and a few top logs were taken from the
meat house and from rhe burn. The fetc
ing, in some places, was swept even to the
bottom rail. Some very large trees were
blown down; two, in particular, were ta
ken up by the roots, and broken off. and
then carried to the distance of forty or fifty
feet. A wagon. standing near the barm,
was carried some fifty feet, and consider
ably broken. A pig pen was bourne off.
witt a pig in it, neither of which has ever
been seen since. Amuut eightorrten hush
els of corn was blown away, nod has never
been found from that time. The house
hold furniture was nearly all destroyed
some blown entirely olf; and a large chest
containing the most valuable wearing tip
pamrel of the family. and all of ilr. P's
papies, was carried comnpletely away.
The chest w"as brokent into pieces, amtd
some of its contetms were found a nmile
from the place am which it started.
But strange to relate, adbhoiagh there
were temn in family, none of them were
killed. Mr. Perry, hi-m wife, anid iwom chil
dren, and two negroies were injutred, but
none of them fatally. Andlwhait is stramng
er still, two of the children hmad gone to
bed. and the bedsteadl upon which they
were lyimng. was bmlownm off and brokemn.
amnd thei bed i'self "as turn into atoms,
snnd the children were thrown into the road
w ithouat receiving the slighmtest injury."
here was noii a thing killed Ott the place,
not even a chickent, so' far as could be as
