j' In publishing a very brief account of the
bondition of the Banks in Charleston. in a re
tent number of our paper, the Banc of the
State *as inadvertently amitted. At present,
ive haveno paper at- hand containing an ac
tount of the ciculation, amount of specie. &c.
in'this Bank. Will one of our city papers send

Cold Weather.-During the past week there
ivere'several days of quite cold weather, and
is inter - lothing was- indispensable. On Fri
day and Saturday inornings frost fell in this
placeand'tQ some extent, checked the growing
The Hon. A. P. Butler, one of our Senators,
arrived at home, in this District, a few days
ago. Dlr. B. obtained leave of absence from
Washington in order to see a near relative who
has long been suffering from severe illness, and
is not expected to recover.
.Capt. Preston' S. Brooks.-We were recent.
ly favored with- the perusal of a letter written
bry Capt. Brooks now in Mexico, to a relative
in this: place.: He states that he is ita most
pleasant quarters in San Angel, surrounded
with uniany'omforts and even 'luxuries. We
think it ded4t'hinto notice a difficulty which
-nceurredietween him and some privates of rte
Pennsylvaiaregiment. These men had treat
ed lim.a with .considerable disrespect, and he
brought them.o-their senses.by.a summary
chastisement.; He knocked. onedown and oth.
-ers were conriarsbaled.- Tlhey were severe
-ly punished hy-the-Court. This chastisement
excited some dissatisfactihn-for a little time, but
the Officers of the Pennsylvania regiment were
soon satisfied with the-propriety of his course,
and h'e wa'sinvitd y them to a supper. The
bestfeelingafteriards prevailed. We would
not al.ude;_toduedifficulty if vry incorrect ac
counts of it had ot beecircilated.

7'Our Regiment is pirerty well satisfied, hut
.Filii'nl it wouild be some bette-r pleaseJ if it
was brigaded 'with aouthern'-troops-. If such
were - the case, the social intercourse of thet.
men would be morie free: We' are ini Gen.
Cushing's Brigade, in which there is not a
Southern regiment except our owvn. There is
n even a Western regiment with tts.
Our 'nen are now an good health and cor
respondling spirits. They kidep- themselves as
clean as regulars; andl are .thae boat natured,
best liehaved soldiers in- tl:e army. If .von
could be a wvitness (fthetr conductiin garrison,
it-would please you tmore -than atnyrthing you'
have heard of them in battle.. They- are mo re
respect ful to iheir officera than any volunteers
ina Mexico, and I always fe-el s pride in contras
ting. the:ir behavior with tihat ofi other-soldiers.
.We never have men in the general- gnard
Jiouse, and every titan appears t.o consider
liimself the r'epresentative ot the c! aracter anid
pride of his State. Trhey were tatught that great
l esson by ol. BUTLani who made it 'lhe chief
object of a discipline, to teach lisa men to be
gentlemen. and patriots. I feel too sensibly
that-the'lossof' onr first cuommanrder can never
be'supplied.. Wehave otlhers who are brave.
gallant, and devoted to their State and country,
-but we have none so oniversally belovedlanid -
Tiijd by the men, anid none posssingt. in
sdiminent a deg ree, the flaculty of' making their
,dwn spirit the spirit of the corps. C,,t. Butler
controlled us all as lie wished, and every man
-loved him the mnnre. the more he came under
his inafiuence. The hishest compltimenat l-couald
pyan officer, would be to sy, that he .made
hisn-own spirit thae trenitas of hie regianeant : for
'no man, an an ardnaous camnpaign, can wield
su~chi power over tte. minds of nmen, unless hais
heart is oh the paureat gold. Th'le Regimnent
'et feels its orphaanage,and the most whole.
-sotae indfuence now exercised cver-ir, is hy the
recollection of the paecepts of its old commnman
*mander, und by thec lingering spirit ofius depar

srved the people of this District the last
four years in the Legislature, and I am s
satisfiel that the capital of that Baivk, is
beyond the control of the people of the
State, and it certainly will remain so un
til the people of the State generally are
better informed as to the true condition
and management of the Bank. I am in
favor of a thorough investigation of the true
condition of the Bank being annually made,
and a full report of the same published to
the people of the State. setting forth the
liabilities of every person to the Bank

securities, and how long each debt has
been standing over, and whether the debt

It seems to me that the Bank (which
ivas instituted for the benefit of the great
body of he -people of the State) has be
come a source of favoritism, and a politi
cal machine, by which the politics of the
State are too much ruled, and as such, a
political evil; and such always'has been.
and always will he. the efiect produced by
Government Banks. Should I be one of
the choice of the people to represent them,
I shall vote for such measures as may be
best calculated to ascertain the true cnn
dition of the Bank, and to lay the same
fairly and openly before the people of the
State, and to require the Bank debtors to -
pay thmeir debts to'the PRank, in sucht an
nual instalments us will discharge their
debts to the Bat.k, by or before the expi
ration of the present charter, that. the peo

TO THE VOTERS OF EDGEFIELD
GENTLEMYta .-1 have always been of
the opinion, that the delegation to the
State Legislature should he eqal through
out the. District; and to be. eqal. there
should be two Representatives from each
regiment, there being three regiments in
the District, (under such reflections) having
some sectional pride. together with the
knowledge that our portion of the District
paid a very liberal portion of the tax of the
District, I-thuoght, of a right. we should
,have a member to the- Legislature, and
solicited several men whom I thought bet
ter qualifieirtn fill the'place than my hun.

p to this tm ,, ohey have "praiised thie
nidt shameful iii sitionion the cimntry mer.
:bant,. without any fear of 'etection. But
n new era in the trade has come, and the
Pek'n Tea Company claims the honor of its
ntroduction. They were the first to raise the
Banner of.Reform, on which it has inscribed
PURE .TEAS AT |HONEST PRICES.'
A- complete revolutionf as beet' the conse

mountof tiasl,-and introdnced ibeitei clas. of
Teas than his yet ever been soil. Importers
>f Tea often comie to tie to get for their own
tae. and for their friends, the fine qualities they
can find nowhere else.
3. We have reduced prices more than 25
ler cent. both in Black and Green Teas. The
whole sale giocers say we are ruining the
rade, and call tis huttbugs. This we have
lone' already, and now see what we are ready
1. We will.sell Teas by the single cheat, hall
best, of 14 lbs. box, at the same price that
wholesale grocers pay -to the imp.orters when
bey buy by the hundred packages.
2. The wholesale grocers always allows 13
or 14 lba, tare to the half chest. This is a cheat!
We wtll allow. in most instances, 15 aer 16 lbs.
are on the same.

'How can yo do this?" asks the country
nerchant. This is our'answer. We are con.
ent with 7 per cent. profit, instead of 25 and
i0 per cent. a la wholesale grocers. .
An Etalish Importer lately boasted to us that
te could make 'iore money by sending bad

We are resolved to overthrow this fraud, and
tow call upon agents in every town in the
