gW Mr. JoHN SENTELL, is our authorized
Agent to collect all monies due this Office, either_
for Advertising, Subscription or Job Work, and
give Recipts for the same. -
SW' Attention is directed to the advertisement
of Messrs. SNOWDEN & SHEAR in another col
umn. These dealers are among the oldest and
raost fashionable to be found in the city of Au
g7 We are indebted to the Hon. DAi1EL
WALLACE for a copy of the speech of our distin
guished Senator, Mr. R HETT, in reply to FOOTS,
and in relation to the Compromise measures.
Foa the future we will receive advertisements
up to-9 o'clock on Wednesday morning. Itis de
sirable that they should be handed in on Mondays
and Tuesdays, that the press of type-setting may
be less. But, ta any rate, let them come to hand
by the hour above mentioned. Otherwise, they
must be delayed a week.
Oua readers will find in a communication else,
where, some interesting particulars of the fire
which occurred in Hamburg on Saturday evening
last, and of the sad circumstance connected with
it-we mean the burning of the child.
"IIA.scRGa" has our thanks for his kindndss in
forwarding an account of the terrible affair.
DICKENS' HOUSEHOLD WORDS,
Turs interesting " Weekly Journal" continues
to reach us regularly. It contains much reading
of a very entertaining kind. It is re-published at
New York by ANGEL, ENGEL & HEwITT, who
attach several pages of New York advertisements
to every number. Price $2.50 per annum.
Tints paper has been very much improved, as
far as its dress is concerned. It has now a very
handsome head-piece, emblazoned quite distinctly
on the top of its first page. There are few better
looking newspapers than the Alvocate. But its
politics-Oh, L! And, by-the-by, that last ex
pression of ours brings to mind a piece of vindie
tive poetry we observed on the first column of the
Adcocate's said first page, by " Ola Sta." Is the
Editor of the Adrocate at liberty to tell us what
could have made "1 Ola Sta" so terribly ran
courous! It may be that a good tale hangs thereby.
THE DUE WEST TELESCOPE.
WITH this new name, the paper, which was the
Er-skine Miscellany, has jtust come before the pub
lic. It is a well-selected nane. Since the
extinction of the Columbia Telescope, it has not
been adopted until now. May the present Tele
scope equal the Telescope of the past!

DIR. CAREW OF THE DIERCURY.
Tuts gentleman who has been for a long time
at the head of the Mercury Office, dissolved his
connexi:'n with it on the 26th inst. The paper
now pa.;es under the control of Mlessrs. IIEAaT
By the withdrawal of Col. CAREw, the edito
rial fraternity of our State has lost one of its
staunchest and most infhuential members. For
one, we are free to say that he carries with him
into his retirement ottr warmest admiration of the
course hre has so steadily pursued in his editorial
capacity. ottr most unafTcted regrets that he is
lost to us, and our sincere wvishtes for his continued
happine~ss and prosperity.
For thte new firm of h:Ar & TAaSE we wish
cotmplete success. Untder their guidance, we have
all confidence that the 3Mercury will continute to
occupy the prominent position it has hitherto sus
tained among the plolitical journals of the Southt.
WE see an advertisement in the Augusta Con
stitutlionalist and Rleymbdlic over thme signature of
W. H~sants, which if not exaggerated, wilt b~e
"glad tidings of great joy" to the atfflicted. He
professes to be able to cure most cases of disease
in a marvelouisly short time--the period of treat
ment varyingz from three to fifteen hours. We
know nothing of htis sybtem, except that he calls
it an " improved" one. Mr. IHarris may be found
at the FEagle and Phonix Ihotel, in Augusta. i~e
says that Editors will servo the cause of humant
ty by moticing his Advertisement. If so, we have
done our part.
SOUTH CAROLINA COLLEGE.
FaoMi the College Catalogue for 1852, farward
e I to us by somne attentive friend, we gather the
There are now in the College 199 students, (of
which nunmber only nine are from the large,
wealthy and intelligent District of Edlgefield.)
The Professors' Chairs are filled by gentlemen
of ability and fame. The Library contains about
eighteen thousand volumes, and is continually in
creasing by an annutal appropriation from thme
Legislature for that purpose.
The two Literary Societies have also very neat
Libraries of their own.
The Lecture Rooms are thoroughly provided
with perfect apparatus.
Thme necessary College expenses amount to
about two hutndred dollars, for thte Collegiate year,
- (9 months) exclusive of books, clothes, room-fur
niture and travelling expenses.
THlE FORREST CASE.
Turs dirty aflixir has ended, and we hope it will
not again be brought on the ' tapis.' FoRREsT
has been pronounced vuilty of adultery--his wife's
innocence established--and an alimony of $3,000
has been allowed to her. The Tragedian may
play Othmello over Desdemona on the boards well
enough, but in real life, it seems, he has failed to
"put out thte light" of his fair consort. Thtree
thousand shtiners per-annum are enough to illumine
the life of most people. W~e hope it will be
enough to brighten Mrs. FoRREsT's future days.
WE heard a gentleman talking, a dlay or two
ago, about preparing to plant water-melons.
"HIit being" that for fifteen or twenty consecutive
days ptreceding (?) thme ground had remained con
tinuotusly frozen, thme remarks really made thte
cold chills run over us. Says he, " I'm going to
havo my ground prepared forthwith, and I'll plant
a part of my patch te first of March." We
went to the fire and warmed imumediately--But it
is a fact, and we are told the gentleman was
right. So ye, who wish early water-melons, go
and do likewise. Put a half bushel of manure to
a hill, and thett broadcast lightly, and then plant
carefully, and then let your plants come up, and
then let them run, and then let the young melons
* begin to come, and then let them grow ever so
large, and then nait till they get ripe, and then
pull them and eat as much as you please--Provi.

EFFECTS OF THE RECENT FIRE,
WE call the attention of our readers to the pale
of 11. R. SrAx, Esq., which is to take place on
the 16th February next. We have ascertained
that Mr. StAxx's losses by the fire are much
greater than was at first calculated.
31r. S. has done much to improve our town, but
does not feel able with his present means to re
build upon the ruins of our late fire. Neither
does he feel at liberty to make private sales of his
property, for fear of injustice to his creditors. He
therefore ofliers his property on long credits, at
public sale, with the view to satisfy their claims.
His property is very valuable and is becoming
We hope (in this connexion) that the present
opportunity will be seized to enlarge and beautify
our public square. With the addition of the
ground, covered by the recent fire, it could be
made the most commodious and handsome 'Plaza'
in the State.
Besides the increased losses of 31r. S., it has
been ascertained that the losses of several of our
merchants were much greater than was first sup
posed. We fear that the effects of this disaster
are not yet all told.
By any thing said above in reference to Mr.
SPANN's aflriirs, we hope the impression will not
be taken up that the business of the Hotel will be
suspended. We have certain information that it
will be carried on in its usual style without the
THE KOSSUTH FERMENTATION.
TiE people of the Northern cities are raving
with their usual wildness upon the subject of
KossUT and Ifungary. It is spoken of in various
prints as a kind of " Wildfire." We regard it as
nothing more than a slight fermentation, which
will be felt only to the extent of a mobocratic
denonstration here and there. It will, doubtless,
soon pass off, leaving the whole aflhir " flat, stale
and unprfitalc'' to every one, unless it lie worth
a little to the maker of certain KossUrru Iuts
which we see advertised.
BJut KossUrtn is a great man and a very clo
quent orator, and an enthusiastic patriot and a
good General. Andi perhaps we may be found at
fault in our prediction after all.
The great Maygar has certainly come upon a
mission which does more honor to his heart than
his head. Of the patriotic impul-es, which in
epire him with the zealous desire to carry deliver
ance to his oppressed country, there can be no
question. We have never thought that there was
anything sinister in his intentions. ]ut it has
been a source of surprise to ts that he should
have entertained, for a inoment, the hope of draw
ing the Amrerican Government into the broils of
Continlental Europe. It only shows how little lie
knew of the principles upon which our Govern
merit has been administered 'ab initio.' In sup
posing that those principles would be abandoned
in the case of flungary vs. Austria, and that
Yankee prowess would rush into an engagement
with the soldiery of far-distant and unrealizable
Russia, Ko.sS'rM " reckoned witheut his host"
most indubitably. Ile should have known better
-perhaps he really did, but wished to try the ex.
periment as a last chance. It seems to us, upon
slight refl-:ction, that the currentef the age would
have to lie reversed in toto, before America could
embark in such an unprofitable undertaking as
that of interference with the quarrels of Europear
poes The tide of successful enterprize ii
pouring with uninterrupted strength and celerity
towards our side of the Atlantic. The gardem
spot of the world is here--and tunmeasured re
gions of valuable territory are yet to he occuptiec

A merican genius. The acting, moving, rushing,
scrouging, roaring, bullying, dcsperate, talented
specimens of humanity are all hastening hither
ward, arid nto eye is east back upon the old wvorld
of Europe whlich has been left behind. For any
one to imagine, under a'1 the circumstances ol
the case (one teth of which wve have not hitted
at,) that American time andi talent cotuld be sub
sidlized for any ptirpose, uniconniected with Amer
ican) prospects, has thme setnblance, to our view, oj
slicer madniess. Yet, as we said before, Kosse-ri
is one of the imaster-minds of lie day and lie niay
-but nio! it is imnpos'ible. T1hme bubible of excite
mient wvhich tie has raised wilt soon burst, and he
will return to his ho-me to deplore the Fatality
which must and will prevent the Americans frome
helping him or his country.
FINE FUN FOIR SATURtDAY NEET.
WE have thme pleasure of announcing to the
lovers of good sport, and that too on the authority
of several gentlemen of pitmctuad hunting habits,
that a real Red Fox niilh be turited loose forta
chase on Satturday morning next about one hout
before day. The spot selected for the openitng of
Cte game, is the Rted Hlill, on the Cohlumbia Road,
two and a half miles fronm the Village, and neat
Col. IIL'tr.-r's cross-roads. All, who wish to enjoy
this unusual exhibition, are itnvited to join its the
chass. Now if this were in Enighand, the ladier
would doubithess be iincluded by this invitation.
But being here, whlere customt scarcely permits to
the fair sex a participation in past-times of this
sort, we hardly know what to say about it. We
will however venture, at all hazards, to say,
" Come on, ladies, if yout choose." The promise
may be fairly made that for every " Diana Ver.
notn" wvho appears, ae "FtANK OssAL.Ms-roNE
will lie in attendance.
Gentlemen are requested not to bring puppies,
curs, fice or any mongrel retinue. Good blooded
fox-hounds may be entered, stibject to the orders
and commands of the leader of the chase. Pon
honor, gentlemen and ladies, this is no hoax.

A DrsCovERY INTER ESTI'G To Ft.ontsTs.
The Paris correspondence of the St. L onis
Republican tells a most becaut iful and' inter
e~tn icvry, which ha~s lately been madue
by a celebrated Parisian JHoruiculturi:t, by
tie nanme of JIlobart:

roonis a few weeks since, an:d I assure vou I
have nto reason to regret the long walk I had
taken. Beneath a large glass case. four or
ive feet high. and as nmatny in circumaference,
were placed pots of roses, japonnicns, pmiks,

enveloped in the green leaves of its calix,
that the color of its tiower could niot even be

Fire in Hamburg.
IIADIiaURa, Jan 26, 1852.
Ma. Erroit,-On Saturday last, 25th inst., n
at about 6 o'clock or a littlo after candle light,
the alarm of Fire, called our little community to
the house occupied by Capt W. W. SALE, which
was on Fire in one of the Rooms, on the second
floor. The almost instantaneous cry of " Child s
in the Room," spread terror and dismay into the
hearts of all. Several determined efforts were
made to rescue tho child, but the conviction
forced itself upon all that life had become extinct s
by suffocation, and that it was thus placed be
yond the teach of pain. No entrance could be!
effected into the room, so rapid had been the
progress of the flames. Thus perished an in
teresting and lovely little girl, aged about three
years, the child of Mrs. OLIVER, sister of Capt.
SALE, and at a time too when its mother' was
from home on a mission of charity-ministering
to the sick.
This sad calamity was at first thought to have
occurred from a candle in the iands of a little t
servant girl, sent by the fhmily, (as was their
custom) to remain with the child, but circum
stances recently developed lead forcibly to the
conclusion that it was the work of Incendiaries.
The circumstances are these i-A few minutes
before the alarm, two members of the family i
smelt something burning, and one looked into I
the fire-place in the room where she was, btit
seeing no fire there, concluded that it proceeded
from the yard, and paid no further attention to
it. In a very few minutes, however, the cry of
Fire was raised, and a rush made for the Room,
but the work had been done,-the flames pre
eluded the possbility of reaching the bed.
The smell of smoke previous to the alarm, the
fact of two men, apparently strangers, having
been seen proceeding from the direction of Capt.
SALE'5 house and parting company at the first
Corner, the attempt to fire a Store on Centre
Street, the night after, at about the same time,
and in the other extremity of the town, lead to
the conclusion that other than the candle in the
little girl's hands, was the cause of the disaster
which has cast a gloom over the whole commu
nity. I will further remark that the street-door
was open, and the room in which the family
were assembled closed, thereby facilitating the

A WIllOW'S CONFESSION,
Whenil was a maiiden, just seventeen,
My first sighing lover was Jonathan Green,
Tho' poor, yet to me was lie sweeter than honey.
But I married a dunce for the sake of his nioney.
Death soon took him off and left me his pelf,
And left me to choose again for myself;
A widow at twenty, enriched by a dower,
Will always have suitors enough in her power.
In solitude mourning T never could tarry,
A second I therefore consented to marry;
But having selected my man in the dark,
No wonder I caught a hungry young shark:
Put old sheriff death, with a sort of ca-sa,
Arrested andi carried the youngster away.
Twice miarried aiid widowed and now nearing

But him I soon found a miserly elf
That loved mec fur nothting at all but my pel~f ;
But death, my old friend, in the midst of his
Miore kindly than ever defeated his schemes.
To find a good husband I thought was in vain,
So widow for life I resolved to remami;
But ere the young grass o'er nmy last one could
There flourished before mec a buxom old beau.
M1y heart was soon melted, I own it with shame,
Again I consenited to alter moy naime;
Again was I ch~eated, and cheated still worse,
What wunman so often has found such a curse ?
But " the piowers combined" of whiskey and
Soon rescued the wife by roasting her dandy ;
Now was I a widow of three score anid ten,
Determined as fate not to marry again:
Not even the fairest and fondest of men ;
But the vows of a widow how hard to manintain!
For somie hiavc asserted, the older she grows,
Thue fonder she gets of the handsome young
And thom' she wecre wvithered and dry as a mium
With lean lantern-jaws all toothless anid gum-my,
Yet still would she never be wvary and wvise,
BuLt yet might be caught in spite of her eyes:
For dotage, we know, is hut childhood renewved,
So the follies of youth will again be pursued;
The truth of the adage cannot be denied,
Since marriage again (to my sorrow) I've tried.
The youth was so sprightly, so charmingly fair,
I yielded, I own, in a fit of despair ;
To you, gentle reader, it need not be told,
The youth was in love, not with me, but my gold.

NAVAL PREPAi:ATIoN.-The Norfolk ler
d learns that orders have been issued by
te Navy Department at Washington, di
?eting the comianders of the yards at the
iveral stations to report the cost of repair
ig and litting out certain vessels now in
rdinary. At the Gosport yard directions
ave been given to get ready with all possi
le despatehl the U. L. sloops St. Louis and
evant, likewise to exatir.e the U. S. fri
ate United States, and sloop of war Fair
eld, and ascertain what time would be ne
essary to get them in condition for service.
The Herald thinks that these are indica
ons that the government is not exactly sat
ified with the existing state of affairs on
ie other side of the Atlantic, and it felt a
ttle apprehension lest it might be involved
some diliculty in the event of a rupture
mong the European powers. It is thought
I;Lt Mr. Secretary Gmtham has acted with
ecoming prudenice and sagacity, in prepar
ig to inegt any contingency that may arise
rom the bursting of the cloud, already stir
harged, on the opposite continent. We
ave an extended commerce, and every
ieans should be afforded for its protection.

The circumstances attending his death were
s touching as the event itself was inelancholy
lie left his home to visit an afilieted friend
ci Georgia, and while returning to his family,
n Tuesday the 13th, near the village nien
ineil. there occurred a collision of the ears,
iV which he had both legs horribly broken anid
angled. lie lingered until Saturday the 17th,
onversing- at intervals, cally and rationally
eith his wife and friends, and the good people
f the vicinity, from whomi he had extended to
in every act of humanity and kindness, when
h1ut ii Oclobk in the afternoon, his spirit was
aken to his God.
His body, accompanied by his immediate
onexions-by a deputation from the fraternity
f Masons, and by Dr. Read, an excellent gen
lemni, who attended him in his last illness,
eached his own house on the 21st, and being
net by a large concourse of citizens was buried
it his family burying ground on the 221, by the
eople, the Odd Fellows, and the Masonis.
The funeral cerenionies were comienceed by
n appropriate discours.- from the lRev. If. C.
ierlong, after which a procession was formed
iv the two fraternities of Odd-Fellows anp
ainsons, together with the fimily, friends, and
teighbots of the deceased. and according to the
:,lein mystic rites of those Orders present,
he body was deposited inl the earth, there to
twIit the S1nnno1s of tihe but day.
TIus our friend met death wit resignation,
:urage, and fortitude, and was buricil ail tile
ympathisiing tears ofa whole community bowed
lowi with sorrow, at his sad and untimely end.

The deceased had been nit exemplary meni
icr of the Baptist ehureh for several years, and
ied in full cominion and fellowship with his
,rethern, expressing, to the last, an abiding eon
idence in his justiieation by faith, through the
ierey and goodness of our ascended Gud.
1ie was a public-spirited citizen, anid had
illed several posts of hionor and profit in the
District, with credit to himself, and distinction
o hi.4 fminily.
Ini the several o>fiees of Captain of a company,
if hcritt's assistant, and of Tax Collector for
he District, (which post lie hld at his ideath)
i bore himself so meekly, that while lie per
rnied his responsible duties with scrupulous
txatness, lie was as muche beloved for his
iodesty andI good inature, as he was trusted for
us tidelity in all his public engagemnents. Th~e
naignity of human nature could not find a
uiilie acet of his life, ort an omiission to do one,
vithi which to uphraid himiu while living; and the
>reathi of scanidat ean now find nothing with
,vbichl to attaint his mieimory.
As an Odd-Feilowi and a Mason lie stood
igh with his brotheris, and we hame reason to
ilieve that his jnidgmient and knowledgo were
!teni consulted by ltem. As a hiusbaiid, as a
hher, aiid as a friend, his course through life
is beeii above reproach. The writer if this
iia flcted tribtute, has been his famiiliar frieind
ori the last two or three years, and cetiversat
ithi his whole p'rivate business anid dealingzs,
mud he here takes ;t melanchioly pleasure in
caring testimioniy to the integrity of all his
rasationis with miiankind, and to his whole
:onduet, as a public oticer, as an unwavering
levoted friend, and as ai pattern and a blessinig
o the society ini which lie moved.
If his friends have been thtus early deprived of
is kinid and cheerful initercourse, anid of his
rudent counsels in their differences with one
mo'ter, they' bear still ini their memiior':es, his
ire exaimplle, teachitng them to measure their
oduct by the rules of honor, justice, anid
rth. If his children, in their tender years,
mve been deprived of his guardiani care, lie has
et his precetpts engravein on thecir hearts, anid
ic has left them, together wvithi his exanmple, an
imiullied name, to sustain and animnate them in
heir cointenitionis with the world, anid to cheer
hem on in the paths of rectitude anid virtue.
f his aflicted wife has beeni bereft of a husbandi,
rhose place in her houtseholhd and in her ntree.~
ins entn be suippliedl by no other friend, she has
ith her still, his dear imiages, nestlinig tin her
osom, to reminid hcr of her duties, to lighten
le cares and burdetis that fall so heavily upon
ir, and, in afew more years, to lie thec comfort,
le support, and the pridec of her life Anid
ie has also the assurance that him shte loved
est, is now, from his toils set free, restintr with
le spirits of the blessed, to which gmoal she is
toubly encouraged ton direct her aiiim amnd to
peed her course, that sheo may meet the ihtther
f her children, where friendls part not, and
rhre the ties of love are never severed.
In thius dwelliing upon the life of my frienid,
nd utpomn his last struggle, 1 ean abniost realize
iclieeuntiful lang~uage of the poet.
'O'er the col sleep of death, smiles and roses

iends to lanment his departure. He wats an af

Whlile his friends lament their liss in his
