T HIS Wheel is adapted to SA W MILLS,
GRIST MILLS or other lacbine'ry, re
quirmg water power, and to all heads of water.
It will move Machinery with more power and
with a less quantity of water than any wheel
now in use, (except an overshot under an ex
treme high head.) It has been thoroughly
tested with different wheels in many parts of
the United Stites, (several c ases in thin State,)
and in all cases has proved superior.
The Subscriber is prepared, at any time, to
test it still further, with any wheel in this State.
It is nqt liable to be clogged or injured by sticks
passing tlTrongh, or impeded by backwater, so
long as there is it head above it. It 1i made of
Cast Iron, is very simple and durable.
SThe subscriber being anthmt-ize.: tosell Rights
of the said Wheel in Edgefeld District, is pre

cannot fail to give satisfactio'n and if required
will'apply them to Mills.

This may certify. that i have recently had

Patent Union Water Wheels, upon a very

the performance of the same. Discharging
about 160 inches of water, it ent during one

I have no hesitation in recommieiidiig it as a

We have been informed by Mrs. Rose, of a
cure perforned on her by Dr. JAYN E'S AL
TERATIVE, which proves itssuperiority over.
every other remedy of the kind. She has been
afflicted for the last sixteen years with'Necroses
or White Swellings, attended with ulcerations
and exfoliation of various bones. during whicly
time many pieces have been discharged from
the frontal bone of the cranium, from both hfr
arms, n rists and hands, and from both legs,
and from the left femoral borne, and from the
right knee. besides painful ulcers on other
parts of her person, which has bafiled the skill
of a number of the most eminent physicians of
our city-during most of the time her sufferings
hIve been excruciating and deplorable. Aboui
three months since she was induced to try Dr
JAYNE'S ALTERATIVE, which has had an
astonishingly happy effect upon her, by iemov
ing all pain and swellings, and causing the ul
cers to heal, while at the same time her general.
health has become completely restored, fo that
she now weighs some 251bs. more than shae did,

the Jp4ljc: 'iEch af -the articles composing
the r dreth Pills,. are-prepared in that way
whichlill secure their beneficial effects to the
svtem in the safest and. easiest manner. For
istan'c', some ingredients have to be prepary
ed in the vacun; that is, the air is exhausted in
the utensil, and remains so until a combir ation
is effected with other ingredients, which after
wards prevents the air from acting injuriously
ugpoi lre uidicne. Again, the proportion for
ingredien't'depends n'po its multiplying power
upon other ingredients. For the power of dif
ferent vegetable purgatives upon each other,
s governed by similar laws that, govern the
power offigures by multiplication. Nine ad
ded to fline, makes eighteen; but nine times
nine, makes eighty-one, . So it. is wit;h sone
vegetable purgatives. by adding dine parts
of one ingredient, and nine, parts oh another
ingredient together, the pov.er is in'creased,
not to eighteen, but to eighty-one. For exam
ple, either of the articles to produce any purga
tive effect, would have to be used to the extent
of eighty-one grains; bycombining.them oqly
eighteen grains have to be used. Again, ano
ther ingredient is found to multiply this power
again, which in a proportion of two grains,
would have no effect upon the aninaal econo:
my, but which. added to eighteen .grains of a
compond of two parts of nine giaains, each of
iwo ingredients, will again multiply the power
which they have.gained of eighty-one, to one
huadred -and sity'two. So agan, the mixture
of wonty grains can be agajna.mtltiplied.by an
addition oh' two g'rains, 16 the power of three
hundred ad twenty-fout grains, of the origi
nal power~ of the two first ingredients. Here
we have twenaty-two grains, wvhich as a purga
tive contain thiepower equal to three hundred
and twenty-four grains of either of thme articles
alone; nevertheless, also so powerful after
being thus comnbined,are safe in any quantity ;
always hiavinig ahbeneficial effect, and in no case
capale of doing injury, of whaich tbousainds

COaIMENCEMENT AT Ensetsz COLLEGE
The Commencement of this young, bu
flourishing lnstittte, took place on the 16t
ult. in presence of a large concourse of per
sons, from the surrounding country, and o
the friends and patrons of th. Institutiot
from a distance. The fact that the Asso.
ciate Reformed Synod of the South was te
meet at tiltat pace on the 18th, attracted a
large portion of,the church, to witness the
exercises on cormh:encement day.
. The exercises were opened by a solemn
and apt71rpriate prayer by he Rev. Dr.
Thornwell, of Columbia, after whieb, six
of the young gentlemen, graduate's, pro
ceeded, in order, to the deli'very of'their
speeches. And, we believe we speak the
universal sentimen't of competent judges
of such exprcises, that they were Withut
excepuOn ;of , a ver.y. igh orde'r... They
were marked by vigor of thought, force of
illustration, a masculine diction, and with
al, in perfect accordance with the sttictest
rules of correct taste.
The speeches b.eigq ended,, the Presi.

short but exceedingly appropriate Bacca

In the afternoon, the Anniversary Ora
tion before the Literary Societies, was pro
nounced by Col. J. L. Orr, of Anderson.
His theme was primary school Education.
We were pleased with the general senii
ment of the Oration, yet it occurred to us
at the time, that it bore evideut naarkb of
haste in its preparation, and as wanting,
to some extent, in the graces of elocution.
The exercises were closed with an ad
dress by W. A. Lee, a former graduate of
the Institution, in presenting the Society's
Diplomas to the men:is'rs pf,the Euphe
mian Society of the Graduating Cass. J1
will be sufficient :o remark in regard to
this performance, ,that it was or the. very
highest order-a finished production. It
was rich in thought, sparkling with classi
cal allusions--chase and elegant in diction,
and pronounced with animation, graceful
ness, and 'east.,, .
