It is very easy to set, that a want of
time.on iite. part of the tommit tee, ould
beget the habit of trusting to the statements
and calculations of the Bank officers, and
thus practically make the 10th Section of
the Charter the exclusive rule of action in
the premises ; t bich Section, the Act of
1824,'nis intended'to anetid; otherwise.

tore it seems, that the Legislature had
crme,to think that it really bad no power
"',t examine minutely the affairs of the

consequently, during the Session of 1843,
it 'enacted, " That either 'Branch 6f the
Legislatnre,'shld hereafter, havefull pow

tidn which thjy' may deem necessary from
the Bank'of jhe State of South-Carolina
or the Branches thereof; and the said
Bank and Branches. are hereby required
to furnish any -information called for by

is; more, this Act is-styled " an Act. to

O'ldhorpe Uounly, i1pr;l22.'1847.
I have used, for the last three years, a ia
chine that was made by R. S.. renshaw. of
Crawlordville. Ga. I considor it one of the
best Gius I have ever seen. Two small mules
will gin, with a great deal of ease, three bales
per day, and 1 <in not think the ii i Gin in
Georgi:t that can excell it in n. ing tine cot=
ton. In fact, Mr. Crenehaw hustso!d a great
inany Gins in this county and lhert. and I
think every man who purchased is perf:ctly
satisfied. All of his Gins which have been
sold in tiis county, and they are nott a t-w. ron
light, pick f:ist; and whn't is better than all. when
the cotton is carried to market it sells for the
very highest price.

Taliaf:rro Counly. Ga.
This is'to certify Ihat I purchased of .. D.
Hamnmack last year, a 45 saw anti fi ictin cot
ton -in, which sakes superior cotton to aiy
gin I have ever had. I carried to Angusta a
part of my crop last fall, which was proannnced
by one of the best judges ofcatto in Augusta,
to be the fittest lot that was in his warehouse.
Two of my neighbors lately sold their crops,
ginned on any gin, and obtained five-eighths ot
a rent per lb. above the market price. I have
not sold my catton, but feel confident of getting
the highest market price when I do sell From
all that I know of Mr. Ilammack's make of
G.ir.s.and there nro several in operation aroutd
me. I would say to those wishing to purchase,
they would do well:to try Ins ba-tore purchasing
elsewhere. . M -RTHA GtFFJN.

I hereby certify that I puchased of. J. 1).
Hammack,'Iast"year; n forty -sity anti friction
cotton Gin, which perforied as-well asiiy gin
I have ever seen tried It nade cotton egmal,
in my opinion, to that of any ufthe Carver gins.
which are so Ili bly prised for their cotton.
My gin and gir,botnte were consnmed by time,
and ns.a report has gore abroad that the house
was fired b:the gi. I take this opportunity to
say. in justice to Mr. Matntnack, that it is iIlse.
I think l! can.with confidence recomiment his
Gins to titosevishing to purchase, for this ra
