FOR THE ADVERTISER.
-. & :RPlank Roads.
MR. EmITo;-lnagain recurring to the
subject of Plank gads, I propose to show
their advantage, in sotto respects, over
Rail Roads.. On the great routes from the
Atlantic Ciifes to the valley of the Mis
sissippi, where hundreds of travellers pass
daily, Rail Roads possess as great advan
tage over Plank Roads, as the latter do
over common Roads. No one, 1'presume,
would advocate the introduction gf Plank
toads on these great routes, fur'purpnses
of travel. It is in agricultural countries,
where the population is sparce,as with us,
that Plank Roads possesa great advantages
over Rail Roads.
In the first place, the cost of a Plank
Road, ready for use, is only about one
tenth of thecost of a Rail Roadready for
use. (I include in this, Locomotive, Pas
senger and Freight Cars, Water Tanks,
&c.) The cost of attendants for a Plank
Ituad, is less than one tenth, of what it is
on a Rail Road. The money expended
for Iron, Locomotives, Cars. &c., for a
Rail Road is sent out of the State, while
the amount expendedl for a Plank Road, is
retained in the State, and even in, the
District. The Timber is here, and needs
only a Steam Engine, to convert it ituo
Lumber. The Labor is among us, and
needs only proper direction, to be availa.
ble. When completed, the R->ad will be
here, accessible to every oue, benefiting
every one, injuring no one, and can he
used at all times, and at all hours, by the
poor and rich, old and young. ,his some
what different with Rail Roads. .Having
certain hours of departure, the traveller is
oblhged to leave, when the regulation of
the Company requires, or he'caunAot travel
Many are of opinion, that .if the Rail
Road was near them, they have only to
transport their Cotton to the nearesbpoint
on the Rail Road, and that they will re
ceive their supplies brought by the Road
at the same point. Such will.sumetitnes
be the case, but not generally. - A Rail
Road may pass through a man's planita
tion, and within twenty yards of'his -Gin
House, and unless there is a station or turn
out at the place, he may be compelkd to
wagon his Cotton. and other produce, five
or six miles to a station ; and still the Com
pany may be disposed to grant him every
acct'mrnmodation. Turn.outs are expen
sive, and are only constructed where the
wants of the Company require. The
trains have their regular time of departure,
and if they are stopped on a single track,
to take on Cotton, ot other produce, they
interfere with other trains, besides, it
would he necessary to take hands on the
train to load, and if the Company- were
disposed to accommodate, they. would be
prevented by circumstances. There are
other objections to shipping cotton, by Rail
Road, when left'at turn-outs. dr stationd,
it often lies for days. exposed to ihe wea
ther, until a Car load is collected, or it is
convenient for the way-train to take it on.
If a planter is subjected to the trouble of
loading and unloading his waton, if he
was near a Plank Road, he would prefer
sending his Cotton in that way to market.
No one, I presume, .supposes that a Rail
Road from Hamburg to Edgefield, would
pay 6 per cent dividend. .T1i!principal
advantage expected to be obtained when
that project was agitated, was'to facilitate
the transportaiionl of produce, atnd which
I have endeavored to show, could be ac'
comiplished by lank Roads. Many be
lieve a Rail Road from H-amuburg to Edge
liuld, would out pay the expense of rn.
inig the Cars. .[n evidence of thi4. they
cite the case of the Portsmouth and Roa
nuke Rail Rood. It was ini operation
several years, whlen not paying rtunning
expensus. thte stockholders were assessed,
to defray the expense of runnitng the Cars.
Finuding it an expensive business, the road
was abatndotned, andi no Car lies run over
it for several years ; the road is still there,
a strikitng proof, that Rail Roads are not
pronitatble in a sparsely populated country,
- FOR TUF. ADvERtTIsER.
luR. Ento,-Being invited by you.
andt called for again by Saluda, to give a
few nmore ideas aboutt Plank Roads, their
cost &c., I cheerfully resume mty pent, to
write for the Roads, attd when the time
comes, will help to butild them. But I
am really afraidl that my Saluda friend
and I,-will be discouraged, unless we htear
favorable news from some quarters. Be
ing~a countrymatn, and not mixing much
with the people, I am not able to say
whether our endeavors to stir~ up our
fellow-citizens have becen successful; bit
this I know, that if they would take the
same interest in Plank Roads that we do0,
we would soon have a rond with a double
track from Hambutrg to Edgefield C. HI.,
and a single track from Edgefield to Ab
beville C. 11., antd ono to New berry C. ii.,
and one to Greenville via Camibridge.
And now, Mr. E~ditor. some will sny where
is the money to build this mighty road to
come from ? Let every one do his duty,
and the money will he forthcoming. Let
Llamhiurg atnd A ugust a subscribe $100,000,

Edgefleld District $100,000. Abbevillo
District $50,000, Laurens District $50,
000, and Greenville District $50,000,
which will be 8400.000; and that will
btuild the road atnd branches. The dis
tance from flamburg to Edgefiald Coutrt
Hlotuse, over a level country, is ahnut twen
ty-five miiles, the grading over thamt part
of the road willinot cost much. WVe will puOt
down the grading and layingtdown at $500
per omile. It takes 142 000 feet lumber per
mile, single track, or 284.000 feet double
track, n hich can be had, deliveretd on the
road at $7 per 1,000--which.will be S1,968
per mile. We will put the cost of double
track at $2,500 per mile, and it wtdl cost
$62,500 to Edgefleld Court flouse. Dis
tance fronm Edgefield to Abbeville C. II.,
fotty miles, say 81,100 for lumbcr, and
$600 for grading and laying down, it will
make $1,700 per mile, or cost of Road to
A bbeville 868.000. Thea distance to New
berry is ablouit forty mniles, cost the same,
i. e. .868,000. Distance to Greenville via
Cambridge, about ninety miles. cost 8153.
000. So yout ,-ill see we can buihil nearly
twvo htindred miles of Plank Road for
S$51,500 and part of that will be double
Having now given some idea cf the cost,
I hope the people will not be afraid to give
a helping hand. You, that ont the well
timbered pine lands of our District, erect
Steam-saw Mills, and they will be more
valuable than the placers of California.

The same subject Continued.
We bate given some historical exam
ples of the evil tendencies of mnnovation.
How are we, now, as a nation acting up to
these warning lessons of the past ? It 'is
greatly to be feared, that we,: like many
nations that have preceded us, are going
in the broad way to ruin. The spirit. of
change is already rife in our:land, though
the existence of our government, deies
little more than half a century. The
States are fast receding from the admira
ble Republics founded by our ancestors,
and falling into the shmckling Democracies
of old Greece and Rome, which neither
secured individual liberty, nor contained
the elements tf self-preservation. See
what has occurred in New-.York, under
the boasted name of reform! All thatwas
venerable and time-testbd in the political
fabric has been ruthlessly torn down, and
'new whimsical additions iade, to suit the
vitiated tastes of modern progressive Re.
ftrners. Nothing has been left in the old
family.ma::sion to fix in the imagination
of the young patriot, feelings of respect
and veneration. The orderly spirit of
Hamilton and Jay, so infused into all the
early state economy, is departed, and in
its stead, the mobocratic genius of Tam
many hall, rules the Ctmmouwealth in
This infection, indigenous to New York,
is fast over-spreading our whole country.
Mississippi is seized with it : so is Ohio:
so Kentucky atid Georgia, and other States,
and the evil, we solemnly regret. is grow
ing every day in our own midst to an
alarming extent. What! Shall we too
follow trio mad career of Greece, and
Rome, of France and New York ? Shall
we destroy our liberties by gradually frit
tering away our noble Constitution, till
no Charter tights are left us? WVhen that
great document is gone (and when man
gled as the Constitution of New York, its
epoch is anarked) there will be-little hope
left for ns. We will go the nay of all
disorganizing. lawless nations. Our gov
ernment will soon degenerate into the
worst form of consolidation. The will of
the numerical majority will control our
destinies ; and of all species of Tyranny,
the world has ever known, that of an un
restrained majority is the worst. - One ty
rant may be dethroned or assassinated ;
but this many heeded monster of nppres,
sin can never be removed. It possesses
the power of perpetuity an! ubiquity. - It
is sempiternal, omnipresent and omnipo
tent. It unina physical force; ands moral
power-the sword and the purse; und no
alternative is left to the minority but to
submit or to dissolve the bonds of society.
It is with theta ty'anny or Revolution.
This would, indeed, be a gloomy pros
pect fur a nation's liberties'
To guard, thterefore, against thiq reek
less spirit of change, which so well tcnda
to do away with our very Consmtu tions
atd to destroy all established order and
usages, is ihe first duty of the s'atesmaIn and
patriot. There is. we solematly believe,
no evil in our political affuirs, which re
quires more powrerfutl resistance. It is the
bane of our land. It nmightt do wvell to
place utpon it, itn some way. strong legal
checks. Demosthenes itnts us. that
among the ancietnt Loorians, in order to
check itnnovation, it wans enacted-" If
any~ onc proposed a law and that law war
rejected. the indiridual sujired deaak."
There is more wisdom int this lani, tban
woutld seem on first blush.
Let us look inore speciatlly to some of
the incidents of this daongerous spirit. In
the'first place, it has a most fatal tendenacy,
from the fact, that it always comes forth
under thte name nod pretext of Reform.
-Reform," is a word that pleases the corn
mfont ear ; for it conveys the idea of some
thing good anti ennobting. In its proper ac
ceptatiotn, it sigttifies improvement. When
applied to political tnatters it ts generally
ntsed to mean, thte getting rid of abuses by
just and equitable amtendmtents. T his ts
worthty of mthe htighest regard of thte States
matn. Butt unfortutnately, now-a-days, by
a sort of mnetotnymy, people take the stgu
for the thing siguifiet-thte name Reform.
for the ideas it embraces: while oftetn the
only tmark of reform present itn a tmeasure,
is tlte name alone. Let us, Fellow-Citi
zns, reflect, that every change is cot
reform, thottgh it may assuame that style.
Th'le name is oftetn given by desiening tnetn,
the better to infla~me popular prejudice and
tot coturt pnpularity. As a tmaxim of gene-.
ral cautiotn, it may be allirmed-That in
novators--those who cotnstantily desire
catnge, in out' politicatl instituitios, are
antiReformers: for they often inspede the
progress of natiottal atdvancemetnt by ig
terrupting te operation of salutary law9'
and institutions ! Beware of those, thetn,
whos perpetually cry, chtange ! change !
Anothenr grievous evil arising from tis
spirit. is, that change has a' tendency to
beget change. No propensity of our na
ture is pano active and powerful than a
desire for novelty. And like the indul
getce of aty other strong passion, the
more it is exercised, the greater will be its
desire for gratification, atnd the more diff
cult will it be to restrain it within proper
limits. Give undue indttlgemce to this
graspitng spirit, and you destroy all thte ele
tents of conservatism in a comtmutity.
The work of tdestruction will follow as
surely as thme order of titme. Attd once
fairly begun, there is no reasonable chmeck
to its progress. Every thir~g must give
way to gratify a vitiated public taste, or
to suit popular errors. Nothinsg will be
venerable enough to escape the hatndsyf
desecratiotn. The stately etdifices of state,
and~ the Temples of our Holy Religion,
will fall at their approach. Then may
we see, the wisdom of a long line of an
cestors neglected and despised-our Con
stit ut ions gone-our virtuous mattners
abadoued-anttd gradually all our ime
honored institutions, w~hich etmbody the
virtues and wisdom of any past ages.

Another evil of ibis spirit, is, its tenden-. M
cy to unsettle important fixed opinio's and vi
principles. It must strike the most casual be
observer, that there already exists in our ed
country, an alarming deigree of. practical ,v
infidelity-we do not mean alone, as to re- ht
ligious matters. but likewise in morils and ov
-politics. Vhere are wye to find the true le
faith touching thes'e important branches'of co
knowledge, on which rest the w.elfare and be
pirinaueney of all well-ordered govern-. to
.;ieni ? There seem, indeed, -to be few ed
iixed-principles among us. It would be g,
diffcult for any of us-to .define our moral, or
political, orreligious creed. In all these, th
-Ae seem all things to all men. Religious, er
moral and political sects are multiplied isl
among us without number. And every 11
sect has-its precepts and practical- -rules of
diction. There is .no true faith to which
the national. niind can recur. No one-can te
point to a standard of national religion, to
natinnal- morals, national politics, or na- tic
tional literature. The rule ofaction in the .w
political world is the will of the predomi-. tit
itaint faction. Every man cuts his faith to so
suit his sect or !action, and changes his G
sect or faction tosuit his personal interests. pi
How amid such a multiplicity of rules and
conflicting opinions, can affairs long have w
a sure established order? Add~ this state th
of thines is becoming more alarming every- to
year of our national existence. The spirit ih

These men statrd out eminently on the

the "golden aces" of their country-peri.-.
