The Cornmencement Opened upon us yes
terday, as has been the caime immemorial
almgost, dark, glooy and lowering, with in
evident propensityina. the weather towards
potn.In spite hovr-ever of this state of
facts, which has become almost inseparably
connected with the oceasion, the exercises
-%vere inter esting, and the Chaptel was crowded
to its utmost capacity of room, either for sit
ting or standing.
The valedictory address of President Pres
ton was short, but appropriate, eloquent and
sfirring, as addresses from him on all ocea
-sions are acknowledged to be. A few brief
but pregnant allusions were made by him to
the eventful crisis, and the lowering storm
-whose coming is heralded by the signs of the
.political sky. Danger and commotion, and
disturbance, were at hand,and a grand drama
perhaps was being brought on the stage,
whose chief parts were to be borne .by the
young men of the present age, and by the
young graduates of the S. Carolina College.
In view of their entrance on the public sphere
-of life at such an epoch, he gave them a brief
admonition to be men, true and honorable,
high-minded men, and to be Carolinians.
Their post of duty, of labor, and of action,
was where the Palmetto waved-and that
sacred emblem, whether caressed by the gen..
tle whispers of peace, or turn and tattered by
the angry god of battle and storms, was to
them an oriflamme for life.
The lesson thus brief, imparted by one
whose abilities dnd experience, and historic
reputation, qualify him to speak "as one hav
ing authority," saik deep in many hearts, and
if we read aright the emotions and resolves
portrayed on many a face, that lesson will not
be soon forgotten.

DIED, at his residence in this District, on the
11th day of October 185), RICHARD P. QUALES,
Esq., in the 39th year or his age.
The deceased had been a consistent momber
of the Baptist Church. for nearly 20 years; and
at the time of his deuth was the Clerk of thd
Bethany Church. He was punetual In iis at
tendanoe upon the public exercises of tho san'
tuary; and enjoyed the preached word, and on
soie occasions was most deepy aiffeeted under it.
The last occasion on which the writer of this
brief notice, saw him, was under preaching, anul
whilst the preacher was describing the nature
and power or faith in Christ, his feelings were in
unison wish those of the miniister, and he seemed
almost overcome. le was strict in his obser
vance of secret devotion, often retiring to bow
in secret supplicati'an at the throne of grace.
It was his pleasure to witness the conveision of
his eldest child, in the 12th year of her age, and
to see her firmness in her Christian profession.
His last illness was of short, but painful duration,
and from the niainer in which he was aIleeted by
the diseatse which terminated his existence on
earth, he said but little in regard to' his dying or
his prospects after death. But the manner of his
life gives an assurance unto his finnilv and survi
ving friends, of Iris preparation for death, and of
his happy entrance into the saints everlasting rest.
Ife has left a wife and seven children, and a
large circle of friends to miourn his departure.

Surgeon's Mate to the 6th Military Dist., United
States Army, and attached to Gen. Pinckney's
Siall', winter and spring, 1815; haging the commis
sinns of such service from the proper officers. now
in his possession, and believing that he can iden
tify by his own oath every soldier in Nash's and
Few's lReaiments, and a large proportion of those
in Col. Thomas' regiment, encamped at Camp
Covington, and in Gen. Bllackshear's regiment at
Darien, as well ats many of the Regular soldiers
commanded by Col. II. V. Milton and Gen. Jack
son in August, 1814, particularly in Capt. Twiggs'
Company of Infanry, Capt. lessia's Rifle Com
pany, and Capt. Proctor's Company of Cavalry of
the '8th Regiment, United States Army, believing,
ie repeats, that these circumstances ostensibly
point him out as pre-eminently prepare< and quali
fied for stch an office, respectfully ol ers himself
as an Agent to procure Bowly Lands for the sol
diers of these companies and wars.
Added to the above advantages, he has 1.r
ence, as he was an agent for procuring soldier's
bounties for services in the Mexican war, and sue
ceeded in every case even after other agents had
failed, and where the case was complicated, by the
soldier's having served two tours, dying there, and
leaving scarcely any proofs of identity or heirship.
In addition to these, he has all the laws on the sub
ject. the Secretary of the Interior's.' lnifesto, his
decision upon the two tours of service, entitlement,
horn one is entitled, &c., all the necessary .forsa,
copies of oaths, method of ilentifying the original
soldier, or, if he is dead, his widow, orphan or
other heirs, and all other papers necessary to se
cure his success. lie is also in correspondence
with the Secretary of the Interior. who is sole ar,.
hitcr (or judge) in this matter, and whose istruc
tions in all cases will be imaplicitly obeyed in order
to insure success.
iHe hegs his felloiv soldiers to remember that
identification is one of themost important items in the
testinitony, and consequently that his being a ble to
swear to their identity is an essential favor which
they can obtain from no other Agent ; and they will
see therefore that 'tis most to their advantage to
engage his services. He has had several applica
tions to secure bnonties.and some are on their way,
or at Washington ere this. and bounties will soon
be returned to him. With the above basis to pre
dicate the selection of an agent upon to obtain
their bounties. my fellow comrades, in these tours
of war service, are assured, that I will obtain their
Mounty Land Warrants for them as.certainly,
quickly and chcaply, as any other Agent, antd upon
the principle that it Iobtain no boutny for them, I
will ask no zal; and I will ask none till they re
ceive their loitnty Warrants in due legal form.
Those who wish to intrust ma with their agency,
niust direct their letters to me (posinge paid) at this
