Gcntlemen:-A report havinggained rene.
ial circulation that I am about to remove
from Greenville, several young ladies at a
di.tance who were about to enter the Sehool
have been induced to delay. In order, there
fore, to correct this nistake. vou will confer
an especial favor by giving this publicity.
The School has never been in a more flour-!
ishing condition, and, so far from removing,
I am about to build a new Collegtiate lnst.
tute, and to settle permanently in Greenville.
Every :rrangenent has been made for a large
number of boarders. I am well :ware that
my success in Greenville has excited the en
vy and malice of sonic who are personally
interested in my removal; this feeling, to
gether with my ivell known political position,
as opposed to submission, has given rise to
secret efforts of some and the persecution

BEDSTEAD FoR AN INvALID.-Dr. Henry R.
Frost, sometime since, presented to the South
Carolina Medical Association, a bedstead, to
which an aparatus is attaeed, by which frac
tures of the lower extremities of the body
may be treated by suspension. It was ex
hibited at the South Caroiina Institute Fair,
in November last, and is a very ingenious in
vention. The Doctor's assistant, 51r. John
Clark, met with an accident by which his leg
was fractured, and being a mechanie, coi
ceived the idea of fashioning this contrivance
for suspending it. The aparatus consists (f
an iron frame, plated with brass, fistened by
two screws to the bedposts; to this a rod is
attached, upon which two small rollers, con
nected by a wooden rod with corresponding
posts, are al'owed to run. Connected with
this by brass pullies is a trough, in which the
fractured leg is received. With the aid of
cords the limb is elevated or moved in a
horizontal position, front one part of the bed
to the other, the body closely following its
movements. The bandagcs being applied it
can be made to rest in the trough, and sus
pended when required. By means of this
novel aparatus the surgeon is enabled to
lesson the flow of blood to an inflamed mem
ber, and the patient to vary his position-sit
up, read or work without assistance.-Chas.
A STAPEDE.-A party of adventurers,
styling themselves 4 Sable Minstrels." yes
terday gave out that they intended to give a
grand concert;" posted large bills, adverti
sed extensively, and persuaded a too coni
ding public that a rare treat was in store for
them. At night the doors were opened. the
hall brightly lighted, and an audience of about
one hundred expectant admirers in atten
denee. The hour otf performance being long
past, the audience begman to show signs of
impatience, then to cry aloud for the exhibi
tors to appear, when one poor wretch-the
scape-goat of the party-did appear, and in pi
teous accent announced that P. T. West, the
great delineator of the pas de African, had
taken the pas Espagnol, or in other words, had
"walked Spanikh" with all the money collected
at the door. Here upon arose a general shout.
Some cried 'sold' some demanded t heir money
back, and some were disposed to give tip the
money willingly it' they could but creep out
unperceived. But the umajority were niot so
easily appeased. The screen was broken
down, a general stampede ensued, and the
last wvhat wasm seen of the Sable Minstrels
was a man with a violin going at the rate of
about tifteeni knots an hour down flay Lane.
THmE Omto NULLIFYING LAW.-The Wil

commenting upon the law just passed by the

MiL. Eirron:-Tlhe accounts per Arctic and
Franklin are at hand. Our Cotton Market is in
a dtepressed sitc i very little selling and not
much disposition to purchase. Buyers generally
are apprehensive that when the accounts reach
Liverpool of the inreased receipts in this coun

this side of the water some Weeks Vince, it will
materiall less n prices in that market, and they
dread its reaction here, consequeitly deakrs are
operating with a grat deal of caution. In addi

At the commencement of our labors, it was
