Hoke had the additional misfortune to ln

taken out of her hands by her daughter,

the child was suddenly missing-she w

perauco Convention of South Carolina,
m was holding its semi-annual meeting. Its
ts sittings continued through two days, and
;h closed at a very late hour last night. About
.one hundred delegates were in attendance
from dil'erent portions of the State. The
ri. body contained many men of talent and
,-, influence; and the debates were able, exci
Stiug and interesting, yet characterized by
great kindness, and unnttimuity of senti

b by Mr. Bowman, Editor of the Tempe

P eloquence and sound argument.. The
prinical object of the speaker was to ex

Edgfield, and the Hon. J. B. O'Neall, the
)> President of the Convention.-The latter
h gentleman explained at some length the
,. present existing license laws of the State.
tOn the L.ast evening the speakers were

the speeches were excellent, abounding in

about one hundred individuals signed the

great influence,-(Ladies of course.)
The most important subject discussed
in the Convention was the License System,
s or the Aiken Resclutions- Twelve months
id ago, at the Aiken Convention, resolutions,
were passed to petition the Legislature for
k the privilege being given to each District

Be like the petitions of our fore-fathers to-the
s British Parliament. The subject was
s. brought before the recent Convention, and
k after an able and lengthy debate the Aiken

1e again petitioned by thousands ; and the
th prospect is, that South Carolina, like New
as York, will soon stand "redeemed, regene

Its object is to carry out the principles so

an adequate. fore at hand to. enforce it."
There can be no..dubit but at the time
that Commodore Stockton declared all
the ports of the west coast of Mexico in a
state of blockade, he was satisfied that the
troubles in California were at an end. If
such had been. the. fact, he would have
had naval fore auflcidat to have enforced

number were'severely injured, when the

good deal of excitement during the after

A NOTHER CASE OF NEURALGIA -
CURED BY RoWAND e MAGIC LoroIN
Mr. J. T. Rbwanid.-Si-Several weeks
since, a daughter of mine about nine years-'
oll, was attacked with the most excrutcating ..;- 1
pains in her hands, limbs and :various- partsof a
the body. For several days she was almost
frantic from pain, uttering cries and shne
continually ! A burning fever coming on, it
seemed almost impossible that she could live.
When in this condition and not having closed -
her eyes for 36 hours. a friend of yours called
and applied- your celebrated MAGIC LO
TION, and in less than five minutes the pairr
was entirely removed'!' A few hours- after.
the pains returned in some measure, but yiel. - v '"
ded as at first, almost'instintly to the Lotion,
and contrary to my expectations, my child re,
recovered and is now in good health; . .
