consolidated despotism at Washington, whieh is
destined soon to be as irresistible .'s it is i'espo:ie.
placing the South completely at the mcray of the
North, utterly destroying her equality and liber
ty, plucking the fruits of her honest labor, and
despite every barrier of the Constitutian, sub
jecting her to a wretched state of slavery, from
which she can never be redeemed unless by the
ultimate right of revolution ; a remedy always
difficult to be exercised and often doubtful in its
This is but a feeble sketch of the chapter of
our wrongs. To a people, not slumbering over
their interests and liberties, no comment on these
grievances can be necessary. They speak in
trrmpet tones to the brave and the free of all
sexes. They call to arms! to arms !
So much for the past. What are our pros
pects for the future? Will not the Government
continue to over-tax the South, and distribute
the revenues to favor the interests of the North ?
Will not the most extravagant appropriations
still be made for the benefit of the ruling majori
ty in the Union ? At the very last session of
Congress $50,000.000 were appropriated princi
pally to the North and West, while the Govern
ment is indebted to an amount exceeding $100.
000,000. Will not this reckless extravagance
cause the South to be continually oppressed by
taxation? Will not the central power at Wash
ington go on increasing, till, utterly destroying
States rights and State sovereignty, it will reduce
the Southern States to mere dependent provinces,
and the Southern people to mere laborers for the
North ? Will not abolition fanatics still agitate,
and invoke all the perverted powers of the Gov
ernment to effect their hellish purpose of abolish
ing slavery in the States ?-So sure as there is a
God in Heaven, these things will follow, unless
checked by some strong exertion of Southern
power. We will know the Government in fu
ture only by its burdens and its exactions, and
by its distribution of the apoils,which, as ill-hoard
ed wealth, it forces from Southern industry. We
can look for nothing but one uninterrupted train
of tyranical and oppressive measures. Ilanks,
Tariffs, Internal Improvements, prodigal appro
priations of the public lands and moneys, wicked
schemes of abolition, and every shameful act of
oppression which the genius of despotism can de
vise, will sweep over these Southern States, like
fell besoms of destruction, carrying with them
ruin and devastation. The South will be a mere
tributary of the North: paying her stipend as
regularly as the slave performs serice to his
task-master; and suffering impoverishment and
ruin amid the most systematic industry and the
most fruitful labor on the face of the globe.
Insulted, oppressed, down-trodden, with no
hope of relief save in our own efforts, under the
will of a just God, what ought we to do, what
can we do, but resist with all our might, and
with all the means the God of nature may place
in our hands, the blind and heartless tyranny
that oppresses us ?

The Z'urman Uiniversity.
I-r will be seen by the proceedings which
we publish below that the prospects of the
success of the Furman University, which was
incorporated by the Legislature of South*
Carolina at its last session, arojuite flatter
in e late our coinmunnity and
State, that an institution af the high carac
ter which the Furman Unversity wvill possess,
has been located in this delightful region of
South Carolina, to dispense its blessings and
advantages to the present and future genera
tionis. in our opinion, no better location for
a College exists in the South than Greenville
affords. With our delightful climate and
the accessibility of Greenville by our Rail
Road which is in progress of completion, the
magnificent site selected for the College it
self, together with the very able and learned
corps of Professors already engaged. and the
additions of others which the Trustees of the
University have it in their power to com..
mnand, must give the institution an attraction
and popularity that will at one command
success and prosperity.
The necessary funds for the endovwment
of the University hatve not yet been secured
but we learn that the agents employed to
obtain subscriptions are sanguine of success,
and that they now promise to make inimedi
ate activo exertions in waiting upon the
generous and liberal throughout the State
for their timely aid, and if so, beifore the en
suing winter the necessary funds will doubt
We heartily concur in the resolutions below
and trust that the citizens of' Greenville will
liberally respond to the call which is matde

FREE COLORED.-The Washington Union,
after alluding to the statistics of the colored
population which we published a few days
since. showing that the free colored popiuha
tion of the United States has only inereased
8 1.2 percent, in the last ten years, and that
in New England it has actually diminished,
" There are those alive who have traced
the fortunes of negro families that were
taken from Virginia and Maryland to the
New England States about the close of our
revolutionary war, and who can prove by
unerring figures those families have decayed
and perished almost as rapidly as the abori
gines of our country. The tendency of the
r' ro made free, if placed in contact with
the white man, is evidently to a state which
unfits him more and more to multiply his
species, and contribute to the civilization of
which lie is rather a mournful spectator than
an intelligent friend."

iT 1, SUBSCRIlER possesses a Receipt to
enable any person to make lee, in any cli

process is simplc, and can be aeco'mplished by
the most limited understanding, so as to produce
from even warn water, in, the hottest climate. a
'UR!E ICE, equal in every essential to that
formed by natural causes. The luxury of always
having at oneN will, in the beat of summer, a
pure and delicious Ice, will readily be conceded;
and its advantages, in cases of sickness cannot
be too greatly prized. By this same process
warm wLter can he rendered delightfully cold in
about 5 minutes. and ice creams, with many other
luxuries, can be made in from 10 to 20 minutes.
The following notice of this great discovery is
taken from the New York Sun:

value to all living South."

I BEG leave respectfully to inform the citizens
of Edgefield, Village and Country, that I have
commenced a MERCANTILE BUSINESS in
the house situated between Mr. BAz's Store
and the Court House.
My STOCK, consisting of all the varieties
usually found in a Village Retail Store, has been
recently purchased in Charleston, from Houses
that import their Goods,principally, direct fron
Europe. And I flatter myself, that an ex
perience of five years in an Importing and Job
bing House in Charleston, together with other
facilities, has enabled me to get a STOCK of
GOODS. that will, in point of STYLE and nae,
compare favorably with any Establishment in the
place. Persons wishing purchase Goods for
CASH or on a credit untirst of January next,
will loose nothing by giving me a call.
A small share of patronage is earnestlysolicited.
