NOTE-.3Y TIrE FoREMA.-Doar reader, you
will doubtless exclaim " Because why !" It is
out of my power even to suggest the reasons
which'the editor started to give for the question
being a tough one. I have followed copy exactly,
except in the last dash, which I thought proper to
insert that the thing might not look too abrupt. It
is certainly the biggest caption and the smallest
article I have had on file this year. It pro
bably was intended for this week's leader, and
was left unfinished by mistake. I hope, therefore,
that every reader will imagine it to be about one
column in length and very much to the point.
WILL YOU SUBMIT, CAROLINIANS?
HAD one stood upon a battle-field before the
unconquered legions of Rome and, pointing to the
apparently overwhelming host arrayed against
them, had he asked the question, " will you fly,
Romans I" it could not have been more startling
to the pride of CasAx's veterais than the above
written caption ought to be to that of the freet.n
of South Carolina. But the sad 'murmuring of
desponding patriots, growing continually more
general and more distin, forces upon us the
melancholj conviction that the'day has come
when the question should be putin its most naked
and shocking fortri. And now, for the first time,
we ask it with as much of despair as of hope.
We despair, when we bbserve the fearful indi
cations of apathy among the leaders of the party
which now claims to be the State. We hope,
when we call to mind the spirit of resistance
which still animates a large portion of the real
substance of, that party. We despair, when we
look to the rapid progress of Unionism, in our
very midst, and recall the.many causes calculated
to advance its strides. We hope, when we think
'that its premature boldness may yet draw forth
from both the leading parties, a torrent of indig
nation, which shall sweep it back into its former
insignificance. We despair, when we think of
the indiffetence, manifested by some who should
feel otherwise, to the dear-bought brightness of
Carolina's fame. We hope, when we remember
that thousands of hearts still glow with- un
diminished devotion to her honor and with undy
ing determination to strgli, while yet there is a
ray of promise, to make her futtire wdithy of her
But.the crisis will soon be over, and the terrible
suspense be ended. It will soor be' fully known
whether our beloved State shall retain Ier wonted
pre-eminence,-or whether thei sun of her glory
shall set in endless night.
Once more, Caroliniins, we ask yoil," will
you submit!" Ponder well the question, for'it is
that which you are now to decide.

IMPROVE YOUR ORCHARDS.
WE see many items going the rounds of the
papers, tending directly to prove that our South
ern climate is pecularly adapted to perfecting al
most every kind of fruit. All we require to make
our country a land of delicious orchards, as well
as cotton fields, is a little more taste, a little less
avarice, aid a considerable Modification of the
spirit of Southern enterprise. Our people have*
become grossly insensible to the true luxury of
living from an overweening desire to magnify
their dimes into dollars, their dollars into eagles,
and their eagles into hundreds and thousands.
Many are content to pass through life with no
more delicate gratification of the palate than long
collardis and fried middlings can afford, so they
gin houses in the Fall. Now we do not mean to
sneer at bacon and greens, for we like them well
enough in their place. Much less would we
speak disrespectfully of cotton bags, for we know
them to be the foundation of Southern prosperity.
But while we are willing to recognise these sub
stantial goods as the proper sub-stratum upon
which to begin to build, yet we are clearly for!
beautifying and enriching the superstructure to
the full extent of rational indulgence. What are
your cotton bags worth to you, if their possession
rrsit iat no increased exhibition of comfort, beauty
and luxuiry i~ WI'a~t does your gold, for whihh
you can change tien, benefit you, if you make
use of it only with the hannd of a usurer ? Is there
any philosophy or religion in thus perverting the
blessings of Heaven ? Did the God of nature
ever intend that you should gloat in secret over.
your bags of cankered silver, or that you should
draw forth only to double them upon the misfor
tutnes or indiscretions of others ? We cannot
imagine how htnnan beings, not to speak of
christian men, can hold up their hiends svbile per
petrating such abuses.
It has been said that "he who makes two
blades of grass grow, where only one grew be-.
fore, is to that extent a benefactor of his race."
But it is a matter of doubt with Us whether the
same could properly be said of him who makes
two bales of cotton where only one was made be
fore. Cotton is too nearly identical with money,
and the love of cotton bags is too nearly akin to
" the love of money," which S-r. .Jastrs pro
nounces " the root of all evil." A grasping after
wealth being the raging epidemic of the day, it
becomes a serious question whether too much at
tention to the cultivation of nn article, directly
calcufated to feled and increase that epidemic, is
worthiy of thei commendation either of the world
ly pl~ilosoplier or of the religious teacher. Yet,
if men, endowed withr reason, would be reasona
ble men, it would be exactly right, and our cotton
begs, after all, would be the very greatest oC
bfessings. And what we mean here by a " rea
sonable man"'is one who has much larger fields
of the "fruges terre" than he has of cotton--one,
Iwho uses the surplus proceeds even of his cotton
crop (not in shaving notes) but in improving and,
adorning his farm with every variety of comfort
and beauty which his circismstances in life will
fairly warrant him in doing. Such a man, in
stead of helping to impoverish his native soil, will
6e lending a hand nobly Towards making his
country s'gttrden of loveliness and plenty. Such
a man, instead of raising children for new coun
tries, will present suecr home attractions and home
preferences to his sors and daughters, as will
cause them to cluster around the spot of their
hiirth and to draw forth the complete resources of
their rmother earth. Such a man, instead of as
sisting' to swell the crowd of mere speculator's
and adventarers, will be giving to his State the
best and truest of' patriots. But we are running'
frrto a disquisition without intending it. All that
we would say may be embraced in a single sen
tence--and it is this: The Farmer is doing more
for his country than the Planter.
We have been led to these few rftections, by
having brought to mind that portion of a farmer's
occupation which may be called fruit culture.
And the immediate circumstance which brought
it to miad was a single apple, presented to us by a
gentleman who gathered'- it from a tree in this
very piney-woods neighborhood of ours. Our
readers need not laugh, for we assure them that
it was as large, firm, rich looking, and highly fla
vored as most Northern apples-and besides it
was a real winter apple. If any onie is still dis
posed to laugh and say " well, you, might have!
told us about the apple without all this stuff."
We auk them the following question and 'leave
them: If New-rov learned the great law of

AMELLING VS. SEEING AND HEARING.

To which the Soil of the South replies: "It is

hear not." -
The Advertiser takes the liberty. of suggesting
to his brethren what he regards a more fitting
answer to the question. It is this: Because New

Mal~. Eorroa :-In your paper of October 23rd,
you propose the folloing
" What is it that has caused thme decline of
sociality in our community of late years."
I must acknowh~dge to you, sir, that my brain
has been puzzled and mystified by that very
same query, times without number-and I have
thought and pondered over the matter until my
senses have heen los( in t perf'eet labyrinth of
conjectures, and the only way la whlic; I could
gather my scattered ideas was to concentrate
every suggestive answer into thiat most unenvia
ble feeling, attainment, inheritance, or wvhatever
else you may eall it-elifshness. Perhaps you
may differ with me in the belief thant selfishness
is either an attainment, or an inheritance. Well,
be it so. But alas ! for that love of one's self,
which causes its possessor to overlook all the
good in others. wvhioh causes him to hug his own
imperfections to his bosom, and bow down and
worship them as household God, which wrests
from his heart -the remembrance of that last
great commiandment, the diadem, the pearl of
price, the gift of a dying. Lord-" Love one
Selfishness I consider to be the worm gnawing

on their hearts in charaeters of gold, " Love one

FOR TUC ADVERTIsER.
Ma. Eooa:-The~ following is offered as a
i6lation to the questi 'in th Adnetiser of
23rd init.' Tid uestio is
"' What has caused the decline of sociality. in
our community of late years."
Theanaes are found in two places. First
At 'Home. - Second-4Abroad. Sociality de
elinesl in soie persoisfrai dises at home, in
oth eauses abrogd, and the causes from
both sources may unite in producing deelension
ii oths'.17 Imean by home, a man's own house,
family and.interest-byuabroad, whatever is
beyond these.inth community in which he lives.
,. Theregis more of the spirit-of individual
enterprise. A few men now do what many to
gethei formerly Iegageid iii, -nd one-iian by the
aid of madhineing the .experience of former.
yeirs,now d6s' what haif a'dozen or more were
thougltnecessaryrto perftrm, inpast years.: In
the days of reaping-books they:had "reaping
frolies." 'Theosotheltdes the work of Six
or more sickles. - A man now " shucks his own
corn," iahd " rolls hi"wn logs," and " picks
and gins his own cotto .-Formerly they had
" Cottenxpiekings$ an uitq( tin'gs," or " house
raisings" and " sewig 'doiaieliently, to bring
the "-boys and girfls" ttheand in the wind
up they had a.danceq. Oimerljtheyhad "fii
ger-picking frolics# t igitheseed out of the
cotton by the. flags~These gave way to
"hand gins," and the'se ;i turn were displaced
by the " saw gin."c TheseTdentical things may
not have affected tlia comnmunty, but the like
spirit anid clange eas doubtless effiected more
or less all operation..
2nd. Closely allied to individual enterprise is
necessity render a man unsocial, but it tempts its
possessor to be so.' A necessary element of so
cinlity is dependenqe, and whatever tenads to
independence tempts to unsociability. As a man
acquires wealth ho becomes independent, and
on the score of interest has less need of being
social. In sections occupied mostly by wealthy
men, there is not half the unaffieted and hearty
sociality which is found among men of less pro
3rd. In connexiots with wealth is generally
selfishness-the bane of social interest. Indeed,
want of sociality with many is but another
name for selfishness. Many men who once gave
their neighbors an. unaffected and hearty wel
come into the log cabin, accompanied by a frank
old fashioned shake of the hand, now receive
the stme men with the coldness peenliar to those
wvho do not need, but are afraid that the neigh
bor needs som'ething they have. As'n man be
comes selfish ho - becomes suspicious of his
neighbors and thus concludes he will not mix
with his dishonest neighbors. I admit many
honorable exceptions, but they are those only
who have tesisted the temptation.
In the second place I shall adduce some of the
enaises of a *ant of sociality found abroad, i. c.,
in the community.
1st. Occasions for social intercourse are fewer
than formerly. The social feeling can be kept
alive only by actital commingling, and if there ai-e
not oceasions for bringing the people together
the feeling will not only decline, but die. I say
nothing as to the good or eril of the occasion,
but that society must be society--to be such, oc
casions must be aflorded, and those occasions
such as to draw the people together in a neigh
borly spirit, unity of design, and commonness of
2nd. It may be said we have as many occa
cione for mingling together as formerly, but these
occasions aro select. or the persons expected to
attend are of a certain stamp. llere is a difler
enee between the rich of the present day, and
those of former (better) days in that respcct.
Formerly it was mueh more common for wealthy
men to make no distinctions on that ground in
their social intercourse tha it is now. There
has been added to wecalth, in the present day,
aristocracy, and sometimes they wcould bc sonmc
thing which they mgre not, and turn out to be
crab-apple aristocracy. Ihow few partie~s arc
now composed of all sorts, excluding of course
the pests to society. And even in a social nmeet
ig, distinctions arc often made with no other
iew tihan to shots that there is ground for so
doing. By throwing society into castes on social
occasions, there is made a number of societica
where there should be but one. And this pro
duces jealousy, recrimination and retaliation
among the castes in society. Thus society be
comes divided, then suspicious, jealous, and
ambitious, and finally belligerent. I am far fronm
agrarianism or any thing akin to it. But what
is the use of telling a nman that you are his su
perior. Hie knowvs it and you know it, even in
" meeting on the square."~
3rd. Another enemy to society is the bigotry
often found in a community divided into differ
ent sects of Christians. Men who were social
in worldly pleasure, become if united with differ
ent branches of the Church unsocial as Christ
ans. And even among the nmenibers of one
sect thon is on a sinful want of sociality,
muchniore siwaitdf th'aite arity'that "rejoiecth
not in iniquity."
4th. Again there are political divisions, and
subdivisions, and cross divisions, which tend t&
destroy sociality. These always existed among
us, but excepting the day of Nullification, there
was not that inveterate animosity existing after
political contests and ' nursed" from one term to
another for " righteous retaliation." The num
ber of contests and candidates now are perhaps
greater than formerly, and the party feeling
which originated with others, now dead, has
been transmitted in increased warmth and depth
on down to us. So we have stcreotyped, and
well remembered differences originating with
leaders in other days, and acted out at present.
5th. Where there have been several genera
tions raised in succession in the same place, it
would be almost a miracle if there would not be at
the present day some old, standing, fed up family
dif'erences perpetuated by children's children,
producing a want of sociality in famili(a similar
to that produced in parties by political contests.
May not this have its influence in producing
that " sad decline in sociality." Are not many
wishing the infirmities of the parents upon their
children in the shape, not of innrmities again,
but of hateful " iniquities."
6th. Nothing perhaps has tended more to
bring about the " sad decline in sociality" than
the unbridled, uncharitable and devilish lashings
and lappings of the long, loose and filthy tongues
of gossipers and tattlers. And if it were con
sistent with society I would recommend that one
half of the adult community be gagged, and the
other half plugged in the ear with bees-wax,
and Temain so till a generation of short tongues
and heavy ears grow up. TEMAU.

EXPLosroN, ATTENDED WITH LOSS OF LIFE.
-An accident occurred on our Rail Road,
on Friday night last, say the Charlestont
Courier, of Nov. 17, which, we are sorry to
say, caused thme death of three inidividuals in
the service of the company.-The new lo
comotive, James L. P'etigru, to which was
attached the ntight train of Freight and pas
senger Cars, in which were several Passen
trers, left Hamburg for thtis city on their way
downt. Whien in the vicinity of White Ponds,
about 17 miles this side of Aiken, the boiler
of the locomotive exploded whicht caused the
instantaneous deatth of Mr. Philip Scholle,
the Engineer, and the twvo Firemen in atten
dance, viz: Frederick Kruse and B. Brother.
The bodies of these unfortunate mien were
throwvn some distance fronm the track, and
and wecre dreadfully nmultihated. The boiler
head wvas found about 400 yards diatatnt fronm
the scene of di~aster.
Scholle and Kruse were connected by
marriage, and we learn are both men of fami
ly. The remains of the unfortunate dead
were brotught to thte city on Satuday, and
buried yesterday afternoon. None of the
pamssengers were injured.
We understand that a hiorse on one of the
cars was also killed. Thlree of the cars wecre
seriously damaged, and the telegraph posts
and wires injured.
SH ARKcEY's I~sTR UCTIo~s.-The Waslting
tont corrsponmdentt of the Baltimore Sunt sayv:
"Instructions htave been sent to Judge
Sharkey requesting him to repair immediate
Iv to IHavana. Thte tyrannical treatment to
'l'hrshmer has induced the Government to
hasten the departure of the American Consul
to Cuba. Judge Sharkey has been instructed
to saty to the Captain General that Mr. Thras
her is an American citizen ; and that hte must
be released from prison instanter. Mr. Crit
tentden's despatcht was to the point. The
Spanish Ambassador has been notified thtat
such instructionts have been Bent to Consul
Sharke~y, antd lhe hats been requested to for
ward said instructions to thte court of Madrid.
Mississe~ri EI.ECTION.-A despatch front
Louisville, dated 8th inst., states that Foote's
majority will be from two to three thousand.
Three union Congressmen are already knowvn
to be elected. Thlere will be a decided
Union majority in tihe House of Repmresenta
tives. 'rThe restult in regard to. the senate is
yet somewhat in doubt. Parties it is be
lieved will be pretty closely divided.
NEGR OES IN On EoN.-There is a territorial
law in Oregon prohibiting thte bringing or
coming of negroes into the Territory. In a
recent case against one Vandterpobl, brought
before Judge Nelson, this law was enforced,
and tItn negro banished from thte State.
TE SPEiERHIuP=-Y9tol 'eXtraet
rom the corrospondence :of the-Philadel
phia Ledger intimates that Mi. But,"nt
withstanding his co-operatioordoctrines, will
have some diaicultyia obtaiding the Speak.
." The- principal candidates for the Speaker.
ship are Mr. Burt, of south. Carolina; Mr.
Houston, of Alabama; Linn Boyd. of Ken
tucky, and, Mr. Disney, of .Ohio. - I-have not
heard any one else talked of .but-Mr. Bayly,
of Virginia. Mr. Burt is a goodlooking,
well-dressed, fine, gentlemanly- person, who
presides with great dignity over an assembly,
understands the rules of the House, and pos.
sesses very respectable abilities. But he
declared, in a published letter,-6t he hated
the Union, and a man wheo batei the-Union
has no business to be a candidate for the
Speakership, and meinbers of the House
have no business to cast their votes for him.
Now is the time to strike a final blow on
THE CUBAN AFFAI,-The 'W:shington
correspondent of the Charleston Courier says
that the'Spanish negotiationu'has at lst come
to a crisis. It is understood that the Pies
dent has concurred in all the views taken by
the Secretary of State, Ur'. Webster. on thie
subject of the Spnisli Minister. Propositions
have been. made to-Mr. Calleron,-the Minis
ter, which he will, no doubt,accede to, and
then the present and pressing-Jifficulties wilh
Spain will be adjusted, and -he - American
prisoners in Cuba and Spain will be released,
and sent for, and brought home.
Mr. Calderon, it will be recollected, deman.
ded not only reparation for the'injries and
indignities whieh the Spanish*Consul suffered
in New-Orleans, but he urged that the repara
tion should be Accompahied with unusual
formalities-that a salute should be given o.n
the return of the Consal to New. Orleana.
Wonder if Isabella will sanetion Mr. Cal.
deron's.:neeeptaince of the .propositions, in
lieu of the saltite,.in caseleaccede? From
late demonstrations, she may prefer to phigh.
