EDGEFIELD, S. C.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16,1851.
The Last Opinion of Calhoun.
PEOPLE of Carolina, hear the last declaration
of your great CALuouN, and let it sink deep into

THE Co-operationists, as will be seen, show a
majority of one votelpolled for Southern Congress.
We regret deeply that our Secession friends have
permitted this consummation. It was not even
expected by the Co-operationists themselves. We
do not know whether to regard it a fair test of the
strength of the two parties in Edgefield. It will
be seen thatnearly 1000 votes did notgoto the polls.
The Secessionists will claim a majority of these
absent voters-so will the Co-operationists. How
can it be decided ? We suppose, only by the bal
lot-box at the general elections. We could have
desired such a turn-out as would have settled the
question. As it is, the District has not yet fully
spoken out. If it is the voice of the whole Dis.
trict which we desire to have, it ought to be shown
by something like the whole vote of the District.
However this may be, we trust our Co-operation
friends, if in the ascendency, will take some steps
to avoid further distraction. We trust this will
be done in the interval between this time and the
opening of the approaching canvass for the Legis
lature. Much good may be done in this way. We
hope still for the best. Our heart is with our

We have to announce the death of HENRY

Hamburg, on Monday night last. Mr. ScrULTz
was a remarkable man-and his energies were
called out, through a large portion of a long life,
in works of great usefulness to the community in
which he lived. It is no undue encomium to say
of him, that there were few men of his day and
time who possessed more of the high spirit of dis
interested enterprize. He contended against ad.

smiled amid the reverses of fortune, many of

MIARK THE CHANGE!
IN February last, when it was thought that
South Carolina would present an undivided front
for secession on the score of past grievances, the
Augusta Republic used the followIng language in
alluding to our action:
Sourn CAROLINA.--SOme of the submission
presses arc striving to excite all manner of preju
dice against South Carolina. They admit that
wrong has been done the South, South Carolina
included. Was that State the aggressor!? They
will tell you no. Did she endeavor to deprive
the North of the common territoryi No. Did she
ever organize societies within her' limits to break
down any institutton at the North?! No. Did she
ever try to steal from the North her property of
any kind!i No. Did she, with a blind and reck
less fanaticism, ever threaten to destroy the
aece, the happiness,* or safety of citizens of the
North ? No. Did she threaten secession for
wvrongs on this slavery question, till the North re
fused her a foot of the new territory, and proved
that she was determined to degrade her as an in
ferior ? No. Can a true hearted Southerner
revile or forsake South Carolina, because she has
lost confidence in the affection of her Northern
Have not the States of the North united with
England and France, to persecute her and destroy
her institution of slavery, upan which her wealth.
prosperity and greatness so eminently depend ?
H as not South Carolina done everything in her
power to get justice and p reserve the Union ? Did I
she not modestly ask only for the Missouri Coin
promise line, whc would have given the North
two-thirds of the territory ? Were not her efforts
to get justice made in vain? Has not the North
grasped all the land, and, and is she not still de
faming, contemning, and hating South CarolinaI
and the South!?
Georgians, Southern men everywhere, can you1
rise up and take sides with the North agamnst
y-our own wronged and injured Southern sister ? I
if you should think that she would err in going
out of the Union alone, will you not say mi,
your hearts, go in peace and God Almighty pros
per you. Would you stand idly by and see the
sword of the North reeking withi her free, nob!',.
and chivalrous blood-see her the subject of gros
oppression in the first place, and the bleeding I
victim of cruelty and tyranny in the second ? If
Southern men would do this, there are not enough
righteous in this Southern land, to save it from I
Let every one observ-e well the tone and spirit of
this extract. And then let us see what the Au
gusta Constitutionalist and Republic of the present
day says. It is noto advising submission as the i
best policy of South Carolina, if the Co-operation 1
candidates are successful in the present canvass
for Southern Congress. Now many of our Co
operation friends have still as their motto "BRsis-1
tance for past aggressions." Yet those, with
whom they aze to co-operate in this matter, deem
the idea absurd. Had secession carried the day in
this State, would such language have come from
our Georgia friends? We cannot think otherwise
than that their language of February last would
still be the joyful tones that greeted our ears. Has
this change been the eff'ect of the secession or the
co-operation movement in South Carolina!? We -1
honestly think of the latter. We again say, let
our co-operation friends now look, first of all, to
co-operation at home.
GEORGIA HAS SUBMhITTED--.-WHAT NEXT?
TH E Georgia elections have resulted in the per
feet triumph of the Coas, STEPHElts and TOoMas
party-a party which professes absolute and un
hesitating submission to federal rule, and which
shrinks from Disunion with a holy horror. From
a leader in the Augusta Constitutionsalist (which
is regarded one of the principal exponents of the
Southern Rights party in Georgia) we gather the
fact that this latter party designs making a virtue
of necessity, by grounding their arms also in sttb
mission. The past is to be, as it were, swept from
the record and forgotten-and a faint-hope is to be
encouraged that a chance of united Southern re
sistance may possibly arise upon the perpetration
of some other more villainous outrage upon South- I
gia then a submission State of the lowest grade
It pains us even to make the suggestion-but we
fear it is no less true than melancholy.
Now the question forces itself upon us, what is
to become of old South Carolina ? Is she too to
follow with shame and humiliation under the yoke
of her oppressors? Have her citizens, at any pre
ivious period of her history, consented to become
the passive instruments of their own degradation
Will they do so now? Let both the parties, into
which our State is divided, reflect deeply upon
tis all-important question. It is one of the las
noment to us all.
The Secessionists (if successful in carrying the
State) propose, vith one united voice, ACTion
rhis they regard the path of honor and the path
of safety. And they urge that the mass of pi-oba
bilities goes directly to prove that AcTON, i
cautiously and skilfully taken, will be eminently
triumphant. Such is the course they recommend
as being entirely accordant with the past charac
ter of their State.
The Co-operationists (if successful in carrying
the State) propose, with one united voice, DELAY
This they regard the path of safety, and not a
variance with what is honorable. But unqualifie<
delay only differs from submission-Georgia sub
mission, in name. The inquiry then arises, wil
the anti-secession majority of the present week
(if such shall appear) indicate a prevalent feeling
in South Carolina in favor of unqualified delay
We are of opinion that it will not be entirely so
we hope it will prove almost entirely otherwise
Of a portion of that vote, we have no hesitatiot
in saying that it is designed to bring about the
tbsolute submission of our State. This portion
includes the bulk of the Greenville vote, and, as
we are told, of the Horry vote-also a portion o
,he Charleston vote, and a very considerable
1prinkling of a like character throughout the State
Flow large a proportion of the whole anti-secessior
rote Is of this grade, we are unprepared to say.
But we have been assured by prominent Co
)perationists, that with this portion of the anti
ecession vote, the Co-operation party (proper) has
to sympathy whatever. So far, so good. We are
ed to believe moreover that they have resolved
never to submit to the Compromise measures-ant
hat they are determined to resist on past issues
rhis is also an'agreeable assurance. And all we
tave to say in conclusion is, " come out, gentle
nen, with your mode of resistance as speedily as
he nature of the case will admit. Secessionists
all upon you to do so, that they may see whether
oerchance our dear State may not be saved the
lisgrace of further and wilder discord. Co-oper.
ttionists (who have become such from your pledge
if resistance) demand of you the redemption ol
hat pledge, and a plain exhibition of the manner
n which you design to preserve inviolate the fame
nd political influence of South Carolina."

MR. EDIroa:-From the perusal of a few
numbers of your spirited and valuable paper. I
m so well convinced of its usefulness, and the
bility which characterises it as one of tihe lead
ng journals of State Rights and Southern Insti
utions, that I sensibly feel that I have lost much
n not subscribing for it months ago ; but hoping
hat it may continue its usefulness in the great
nd good cause in which it is now engaged, I
nost respectfully request that you forward it te
You may think somewhat strange that I, once
Co-operationist, ahould at thnis stage of the
~ame, subscribe for one of the warmest secession
napers in the State, and espouse its doctrine; but
ir, let me tell you that there is nothing strangt
r Inconsistent in such a course. I was a Co
perationist it is true, but my principles wer
>redicated upon the hope, and a probability,
rhich did exist, of obtaining thne co-operation 01
mec or two of our sister States, and my under.
tanding of the Co-operation doctrine was that
f co-operation could not be obtained for pasi
prongs, the dlire necessity of separate actior
woul~i be forced upon South Carolina, anud thai
he should act, and in her troubles should receivt
ur cheerful support. What now is the aspect
f aflftirs ? Let us briefly examine. The recent
leetions in our sister States, and the certain de
eat of the Southern Rights party in the ap
roaehing election in Georgia, have set asidt
Drever the hope of obtaining co-operation for
anst aggressions, and "casts ominous conjec
ores'" on the remote possibility of the desired
0-operation ever being brought about by even
more flagrant and oppressive wrongs in the fu
ure. If we judge by the signs of the times,
ad the natural tendency of events, the fear
s1 conclusion is forced upon us that we are fast
inking into the meshes of consolidation, and a
elitical despotism. Issues were made in Geor
in. Alabama and Mississippi, on which were
ased the hopeful argument of the Co-operation
'arty of our State, and on which turned the desti
lies of the South and her peculiar institutions.
These issues have been "brought to judgement,"
nd the decision is Submnission, Union and Consol
lation, and he is read to little purpose. and must
e blind indeed, who judging from the past, and
almnly reviewing thne present state of affairs, does
tot foresee the inevitable result of these obnox
aus decisions, and the political abyss into which
re are fast being submerged.
In this sad extremity, the eyes of all true pa
riots of ste South arc turned with anxious so
icitude upon devoted Carolina. They see her
tanding upon the proud eminence of justice,
itates rights and National equality, with her
tnee raised in mid-air, waiting the fiat of her
lelegated authorities to strike the final, fattal
low. They look to her as the Inst hope for'the
reservation of political liberty, Southern rights,
ad Statc sovereignty ;the momentous questions

rom disgrace and federal thraldom ? Will sihe,
ike some other States, basely submit, and sink
tack into the vortex of ruin and degradation, so
kilfully prepared for her by her enemies? To
hese questions but one answer. No ! No ! No!
E~ven while [ write, methinks I hear the echo of

iroud defiance, and portentous indignation from

rying "Secession! Secession I Liberty or
I apprehend that no honest man, who walks
ad thinks, will pretend to deny that the course
Iready adopted, confirmed and ratified by the
ote and resolutions of every sister Southern
;tate, in relation to the aggressions of tine past,
as put to rest, or at least beyond thte reach of
ossibilih-, the qnestion of co-operation, and im
posed upon South Carolina the issue of secession
or submission. Then taking it for granted that
all parties are satisfied that co-operation cannot
be obtained, will the Co-operationists recede
from the position they first assumed, and submit,
or will they, true to the principles they first indi
cated, and ever declared, mount the platform of
resistance and separate State action ? This is a
grave question, Mr. Editor-it involves the issue
now presented to the people of Carolina, and its
final decision must determine for weal or for woe,
her political, moral, and physical destiny. I am
persuaded.that a large. portion of the Co-opera
tionists of the State, will in their final judge
ment, deprecate and repudiate the idea of sub
mission. I was a Co-operationist, and one of the
first to resist the tide put in -motion by the Con
vention of Southern Rights Associations, held
in Charleston, in May last. I was a Co-opera
tionist from the purest principles of prudence,
policy and propriety; and the motives and prin
ciples of that part, as expressed and published,
were only to prevent the State from acting pre
eipitately, or alone, until all hope of obtaining the
co-operation of one or more States, should man
ifestly become extinct. This is certainly the
platform first adopted by that party, and lie who
will gainsay the fact stands committed of such a
palpable misstatement, that he should never more
be trusted; he is, at least, an unsafe leader, or ad
viser, for honest freemen, men who are battling
for the great principles of truth and justice.
Well, the crisis has.arrived-the leaders of the
party, themselves, have in their public speeches,
and primary assemblies, declared their honest
conviction that co-operation for past aggressions
is a political impossibility, and in fact some of
them have gone so far as to address testimony to
prove the utter futility of longer counting the
assistance of the other slave States. Then what
is co-operation, but an idle song, chanted by
demagogues, and amateur politicians, to lull the
ignorant and unsuspecting into submission ?
I was a Co-operationist, I am a Secessionist,
and I verily believe that South Carolina is in the
right track for the preservation of her dignity,
her honor, her sovereignty and her dearest in
stitutions, and I believe moreover, that her separ
ate and isolated secession from the mouldering
and putridinous carease of a once glorious com
pact, is the only means now left, through which
the right of secession can be tested and secured
to the States.
Sons of Carolina look to your flag! Remem
ber the Submissionists tell you that disgrace and
ruin is certain in the Union. The Secenionists
tell you that out of the Union there caft be no
thing worse than " disgrace And ruin," and that
there is a chance, at least, for safety.
Secessionists go ahead, act well your part and,
permittoe divis cetera.

The Superintendant's Iffonthly
Report, for September,
Or -rE SUNDAY SCHooLs I- CoNNEcTIoN WITr
rRINITY (PRoT. Errs) CHURCn IN vHs Vir
Rsv. AND DEAR Sra-Our Schools have now
been in operation a little more than four months.
During this period, excepting two Sundays, on
which the weather wss very inclement, the
Teachers and Scholars have, with great-regular
ity, assembled each Lord's day in the House of
God, and spent an hour or more together. Praise
and prayer to the triune God have opened and
closed the duties of the School. The day, the
place. the regularity of meeting and the devo
tional exereises, all bespeak an object of interest
and grave importance, whether by catechism,
hymn or scripture-lesson, the truth as it is in Je
stus is brought before the mind of the learner.
The salvation of souls, thecn, is the manifest pur
pose for which the Teachers, with praiseworthy
diligence, are statedly laboring here. Could any
one Teacher be the instrument of God in turning
a single soul from the error of its way, would not
the toil of a life-time be well requitedi An im
mortal being would thus be pltucked, as a brand,
from the burnings of the "fire that never shall he
quenched. The golden harps of Heaven would
sweetly sound a strain of ravishing melody, while
the voices of the enraptured harpers would chant
the praises of Emmanuel's grace, for rescuing
one more soul from the destroyer. The Lord
Jesus himself, would sec of the travil of his soul,
and rejoice for the recovery of another straying
lamb: and the ages of eternity would only in
crease (as they rolled on) the delight, the peace,
-the unspeakable glory and bliss of the pardoned
and sanctified soul. Could the laborious teacher
witness such results, would not his cup of joy be
fulli May each of our number be thus joyful
It is true we are unworthy of such honors.
The new creation-the conversion of a soul, is
"from above"--from Him who is Almighty.
Yet the Lord deigns to use human instruments
as co-makers with himself, lie has crowned
with success the faithful'teachings and pursua
sive expostulations of many a praying Teacher.
Besides, the ago of most of our Scholars is such
as to warrant the hope that the communication
of religious trutth, now -made with affectionate
earnestness, still materially influence their future
lives. Early impressione on the human mind
and heart, are apt to be lasting. We know that
familiarity with vice in children, invariably pro
duces crime in youth and manhood. It was re
marked, many years since, by Bishop Gibson of
London, that the jail and pour-house of England,
were crowded for the most part by those who,
in the tender years of childhood, received no re
ligious education. Might nut examination trace
the abounding and awful crime of our owvn coun
try and time, to the same sad neglect? Let us
hope to do something toward staying this evil.
The truths of the Gospel, whieh we endeavor to
teach our Schollars, have a national tendency to
preserve them from the miseries attached in this
world to a vicious life. Above all, by God's
blessing, they wvill save themi from the sufferings
of the ungodly in thme world to come, and make
them holy and happy citizens of the new Jerusa
1cm-the city of our God. Let us he cheered by
the reflection that we arc here obeying one of the
very last injunctions of the "Good Shepherd,"
"Feed my LAras."
Having, as I intended last month, erased from
the roll several names, our present number is, in
the white School 34, and in the colored 74-To
tal 108. Though the aggregate number is a lit
tie smaller than at the time of my last report, the
actual attendance has been very much bctter than
ever--there having been present, Sept. 7th, 28
18 white and 60 colared-Sept. 21st, 30 whit
and 58 colored-and Sept. 28th, (to-day) Vi
white and 63 colored. The average attendanc
has beed 88 Schollars each day.

BELOVED BRETHRE-As the Cireilar Let

short communication in the form of a Cireu
lar, through the Committee on the State o
Religion within our bounds.
The information fro'm a few of the Church
es has been gratifying in the report of tw
hundred and sixty-nine baptisms, attende
with a lively state of things in Religion. The
Ministry also is increased in numbers. Ii
this department, we:have now twenty-on
Ordained Ministers, and five Licentintes. wh,
are statedly proclaimibg the truth of God t(
listening audienees, Two Bible Societies
and two Sunday Schools only are affordint
their aid to the labors of the Ministry.
But it is cause of sn're lamentation, that th
spirit of netive piety and zealous effort on th
part of the membership is very low. Poll
ties and the love of tiis world.are. it isjustl:
feared, absorbing the attention of the profes
sors of Religion to the awful neglect of Re
ligion itself. rhe Ministry too feel the en
feebling influence of these general causes o
spiritual deelension. -
In this state of things, deeply sensible o
the political difficulties. that are gatherinc
upon us. we have resolved upon a day o
fasting. humiliation and prayer, and have in
strueted the Moderator to request the Ge
vernor of the State to appoint the day, tl:a
may appear to him most suitable, and mak
it known by proclamation.
With unanimous voice, wre have resolve
to establish a Book Depository at Edgefiel
C. H., for the purpose of bringing to a een
tral point in the Association, Religious works
that they may be easily obtained, and at ver
moderate prices. And we have appointed
board for the management of its interests, t(
whose hands we have committed the fund
sent up for the purpose. One object of thi
organization is to supply the destitute gra

WILLIAM B. JOHNSON,
Chnirman of the Committee on the state o
It is now but two or' three years since th.
States of the North and South, with grea
unanimity and emphasis, declared their deter
ination, respectively, on the territorial quer
lion. The North resolved that slavery shoul
not enter the territory acquired from Mexie
-tle South resolved that it should. Congres
met, decided, and adjourned. And slaveryi
not thlere, and canntlt go without a certaint;
of expulsion. Yet, if Congresc had not aet
ed at all, and if the North had not resolvel
slavery would have been in every p)art of tha~
territory, and would have been permanent il
a full share of it.
The South did more than resolve that sla
very should go into the new territory. It in
sisted that fngitive slaves should be recover
ed fronm the Northern States. Congressnect
ed on this subject also, and -decided in farvo
of that recovery.
Thus, in that contest, the Southern State
were driven by Congress from the territor)
and were permitted to recove'r fnigitives
tthing never formally refused by any Northeri
Such a result, of course, excited great in
dignation in the South-but every onie of he
States but one has submit ted. 1In the North
however, never before was suich~ excirtemen
prevalent. The North has scorned to receiv
the surrender of the South, because therei
one condition to it, aind that is that a plail
conlstituitional right is to be enforced. Ac
cordingly, in Massachusetts, New York, ani
Pennsylvania, thle attempt to exercise thi
right has been met with~ popular violenet
Coulrts have been brokeni open. ofieers hiav'

ing to give $1000 towards a "Kossuth Fund,"
which he proposes shall be increased by vol
untarv contributions to $100.000, and well
invested for a noble exile. This is a manifi.
cent offer, but one becomes sceptical about
the sincerity of such generosity, when he re
members that it is made by the man who
fenped such a harvest by buying the fir.t
Jenny Lind ticket. This Kossuth Fund will
be as good an advertisement as the ticket
WiAT NEXT.-The Cincinnati Nonpariel
'By invitation of Mr. Wood, we yesterday
had the pleasure of witnessing Mr. McCor
mick's experiment of walking on an inverted
plane. The experiment was a private one,
only a few persons being present, and was
-made under very disadvantageous cirenin
stances, the preparations being neccssarily in
complete, and the health of Mr. McCormuick
being somewhat feeble. The experiment,
ho~wever, pnased off to the entire satisfaetion
of nll present. A heavy frame was erected,
with a slab of marble nine feet long at the
top, the under surface being polished like a
mirror. 'We saw the experimenter monnt his
platformi, and adjust his unwieldlv boots;
then, pineing both feet against the s'urface of
themableheswung himsel foff with his head
downwards. 1i.-connecting one foot from
-the slah, na plneing it firmly several inches
in advance of the other, he continued the al
ternate movement till he had taken ten steps,
and arrived at the othier end of the slab.
r"e held our breath during the experiment,
expecting momentarily that he would fall, but
he appeaired to walk as safely as a fly runs
along the ceiling. After his descent, howev
er, we noticed that he wa~s much exhausted,
owing to the excitement and exertion. The
pnblRic ehihition of this wonderful e.xperi
ment will tnke plnce at the Melode~on on
Mondny evening next."

Liver complaint. Dyspepsia, Disease of the Kid

by any other known preparation, as the cures

EDrns, consort of Samuel C. Edmunds,
Abbeville District. The deceased was in t1
fiftieth year of her age, and during the last year
two endured much and great suffering. H,
disease was one of the most intractable eharnet
but did not appear so formidable till about
month before her death, when it assumed a me
malignant nature, and under the malignant aire
tion of the mesa and the excessive metrorrahA
and euteric profluvia, she was made to suecum
She has left a respectable family consisting of i
affectionate husband and several children, t
gether with many other relatives and numerol
friends, to lament her departure. But for t]
consolation of her bereft friends she has left i
indubitable impression that she has left a world
misery for a region of bliss. A bout twenty-fol
hours (or a little less) previous to her death. sl
asked for a drink of water. :tid to be raised
drink it, saying to those about her, I un dlyin
and have beent all day, mnd you ill know it
Her request was granted, and she called for h
husband to go in and talk with her, lie underto(
the task but was so affected that lie could say b
little. During this her oldest son was standit
weeping at the foot of her bed-she asked wl
he was, and being told said. " my child weep n
for me.'' She told her husband she felt that sl
I had a home in heaven, &c., and that she w
resigned to the will of God. It was then agrei
upon to send for Mr. Wi. S IEADWRIGWIT,
gentleman of devout order. On arriving the:
he says she seemed very anxious to converse wil
some friend on the subject of her feelings. .
he asked her if she felt that "God had f
Christ's sake forgiven her sins." She replie
" Yes." Ie then asked her if she felt that sI
loved God and his people ? To which she sal
"I do love God, his people, and his eanse." Ar
furthermore she said to him. -I always did lil
you aind believed you to be a chrisitna; I wi
you to pray for and instruct my children, th
they may live right ;" and to her weeping frieni
she said, "don't weep for me." Mr. 11. aski
her if she felt resigned and could give up hi
family. Iler reply was. " Yes. The Lord w
take care of them." And being asked s1
heartily consented to prayer by Mr. H. Aft
which by her request her friends.unmted in sin
ing the well known hymn, "Children of tl
leavenly King." She joined with theni at
sung nearly the whole song, and about twen
hours after this expired. Thus ended the eartl
ly sufferings of our highly esteemed friend who

which are, affectionateness, dutifulness, and us
