GLAD TO HEAR IT
WE understand that the ladies of the Baptist
'Seving Society, of thii-ple' have-gone to work
in earnest to raise -funds, for repairing and re-.
painting-our old-Baptist - Church. This is-Just as
it should be, or rather as it should have been a
year or two ago-but" better late than never."
We wish this public-spirited (perhaps weshould
say Chris:iati-spirited) society a speedy. accom
plishment of their object. And merely to help on
a little we will any to you, ladies, that you may
send to us, as soon as you please, ten dollar'
worth of your articles at your own prices.
WE take pleasure in announcing to the public
that Mr. ALDRIch has secured, for the musical
-department-of liis Seniinary in this villige, the
services of Mr. A. KOEaBEa, a- German but late

Mr. K. is decidedly the most brilliant. Pianist
we have ever had in Edgefield,. and we -have no
doubt of his capabilities as a teacher. On yes
terday, we had the pleasure of hearing him in
several piecies; and we have not been more high
ly gratified in this respect, -fr many days, than
we were by his splendid execution. We were
specially pleased with Mr. K's. own composition.
Among these last was a Sacred piece, an-9ver
f4rei a Marcir, a Gallop and a Sh'otiscli, all
excel.ent of their. kind.

-We find in a letter, written py Judge O'NEArLL
to the " Temperance Adeocate," the following
expesions touching the senior Editor of the Ad
-"I knew well, -without the comment of thme
Editor of the Edgefeld Advert iser,-that I was not
" the stur of his idolatry." Indeed I should be
sorry to be the subject of idolatrous worship hy
any one, and espenially should I tremble if te
enemies of Temperance mere to praise me."'
If there be any meaning at all in this language,
it must be that his Hlonor intends to iay at our
door the charge of enmity to Temperance. Some,
in our situation, would stamp calumny upon the
inuendo without delay or hesitation. But the
Judge's present position, before the people of the
State, induces us to prefer pointing lhi' to hi's
error and asking his re-consideration of the over'
Our first fault seenms to have been a neglect to
land Mr. PnstLrr WHrrE and his Temperance
speeches. Our second,,we suppose, was a refusal
to do better upon receiving the dictum of the
Judge. And for this we are ranked among the
enemies of Temperance. If there be any thing
else, (which has appeared from our pen) in the
least calculated to authorize any. such charge as
his IHonor has thought prudent to-prefer against
us, let him produce it. Or elso let him stand con
victed before an impartial public 'of- doing an
humble fellow-citizen, but one of-equal rights
and-equal character with his own, the mostasin
gular and uncalled-for injustice.
It is only necessary to append certain expres
sions of ours, published in the same number
which contained our first brief vindication of the
course we had pursued in this matter. Besides
concluding that paragraph with -the assertiori of
our beleif that what we published "had resulted,
here, in advantage to Mr. WutrrE's influence and
to the Temlierance' causeas connected wvith that
gentlenian," we had, in the 'same column a short
notice under the heading, _" Temperance," a part
of which ran as follows:
" We have received a circular from Judge
O'NEArLL, as President 'of the " State Temper
ance Society," for which we return our thanks.
The proposition is briefly and forcibly set forth of
raising a Temperance lkund for the 'more active
propagation of temperance principles throughout
the State, by the purchase of Books, Tracts &c.;
adb the emlomet of suitable Lecturers.
T e circular shows, that -Sduth Carolina is
