As the o6j'ets of this association have been
uiisrepresented in sundry New York papers,
ir.- Wren, the President of the Grand Asocia
t16 of the Order, writes a letter to one of them,
from which we extract the following:
" The Order of the Lone Star was instituted
in the city of Lafayette, by a few rentlemten,
.ione of whom were personally icquaialed
with Gen. Lopez, although sympatheically
fhvorable to his expedition; consequently, the
foundation of the association was in no manner
to aid in the success of his liberating army.
The object of the original foundation was the
conservation of unadulterated patriotism at
home and abroad, and the society was purely
American in its conception, as its aim was to
guard the palladium of ouC nationality against
the insidious aggressions of interior foes, and
the assaults of open enemies.
" Believing republicanism to be the sole form
of government calculated to secure happiness
and prosperity to our land, and the only state
of political existetice coniducive to the universal
benefit of humanity, we naturally yearned to
wards its perpttuation among our people, and
i a introductian among other tations of the
globe; consequently, as we ourselves are loth
to wear the chains of monarchical and imperial
bondage, we are willing to extend all lawful and
legitimate aid and succor to the oppressed of
other climest struggling to strike off the shack
les of despotism; but in no way would our
endeavors io carry out so deserving and philan.

ourselves, our fatnilies, and our country. Our
object was never limited to a specific sphere; it
was general and cosmopolitan. We cast no
eye upon Cuba nor Mexico, but upon humani.

could be discovered in artms against their tyran

PoWEns' BUsT OF CA.HoUN.-The following
extract, fraom the correspondence of the Courier,
informs us that we will soon have among us
this work of art.. We learo it is to be present

sustained by the Greenville and Columbia Rail-lionl

ascertained to be much smaller than were at first

THE C03MING LEGISLATU:RE--ITS IMPORTANC.
rTuE business of electing a new I.~gislatutre is al
wa-ys a subject which should-coftiand the carefual
consideration of every citizen, who is at all mtnd ful
of the character and well-being of his State. -Ad
ty, ever inseparable from the elective franchise. In
our opinion, the approaching elections for represeta
tives present just such an occasion for care anal cir
cumspection ; and, to rupport this opinion, wa, imagine
it is otnly necessary to advert to one or two fnets.
It is well known that the charters of several of our
banks expire in the year '56 or there'abouts, and the
probability is great that these banks will all press
urgently for a re-charter before the Le'gisfatcure, sogon
to be elected, shall he dissolved. This circumstance
alone will doubtless give rise to discussionn; anal rtsult
in dIeisions that will affect (for good or for evil) the
best interestsq of our State for years to come. It is
not amiss to say thtat good judgemtent, sonme financial
ability anal, above all, firmness andl decision shoulad
form a part of the qutalificationas of those whaotm we
shall delegate to decide upon these very itmportant
In additioan to thi', there are several application..
for chaurters of Rail-Road C:ompanies to be acted upon,
one of which at least will be of great itntere.st to the
S:ate-wve mean that of the Rabun-Gap Rlail-Rada.
What may be the fate of thiq measure is beyond our
power to divine. We behmeve, if the matter be pro.
perly matnaged, that vast benefits wdll accrue to Southa
Carolina. Nor do we regard the stake which our
own District may have in this great praject to be in
any degree beneath that of ay othter section.
We trust therefore that our peoplo will see to it thatt
the inafluence whtich we may exert in the approachitng
Legislature shall be strong and effective. And this
consummation, we respectfaully suggest. will be best
attained by throwing aside all purely personal or par.
tisan predilectionas, and looking to 'the rs merits of
each candidate. We have now a ftull field before as
from which to select our representation; and we may
safely say that not one of the presetnt aspirants for
this honorable position will demur, for a single inn
ment, to our recommendation. If there were one
among them who wotuld base his claims to a seat in
the General Assembly of South Caroltna, at thais june
ture, upon any other ground than that of hais compara
tive waarth and qua'lilications, wve should strotagly in
cline to theo opinion that he was far from meriting the
honors hae would seek to grasp.
TIRE PENDLETON CAND)IDATES--"NE3IINE CON.
TuE Anderson Ga:ette of the 17th inst. informs ate
that the candidates for the Legislatuare in that Di,
trict are all "a itn the affirmative," as the boys say in
their debating societies. They are in favor of Pt ER cE
and Kaw, in favor of giving the eleenoun of elect. r,
to the people, in fatvor of rechartering thec State Bank,
itn favor of mnaking Anderson and Pickens election
distticts, and in favor of repealing thae hlomesteadl
Exemption Law. They take the stump regularly it
seems in that section. With us there is nothing of
the sort. No- political question whatever htas been
mooted. There was a talk of calling out our tmen
upon the quesrion of adtviding Edgefieldl. Whyv thec
subject has been dropped so unceremoniottly we can
not tell. If tho measure of creatting new districts is
an open one, we rather think the Salada people have
as strong a claiam as any others.

Usa this head may be fottnd six long and closely

GLANCE AT OUR POLITICAL PROSPECTS AND
IT is almost reduced to a certainty that the Demo
racy of America will succeed in placing their nomi
tee, FaANKLIN PIERCa, of New Hampshire, in the
"residential chair. Their success promises to be sig.
ial; and this result will most 'probably involve the
ntire defeat amnd dispersion of the Whigs. By this
ye menn that no party, worthy of a name, can much
onger hold together throughout the Union, upon the
>rinciples heretofore embraced by what has been
tuown as the Whig Platform. The tendency to run
nto two great sectional Divisions, is becoming daily
nore manifest; and we cannot believe that many
Fears will elapse before both Whiggery and Democra
:y will be entirely merged in the struggle which is
hastening on between these two Divisicns, and which
will certainly prove to be a deadly struggle for the
ascendancy. The political elements of the country
are in unexampled confusion, and from all the indica
tions it would seem that we are about to take a new
latitude and departure. CALuoUN and CLAY are
dead. and Wessrr.a will soon be off the stage. The
bias these grea- men gave to pai-ty operations will
now be lost and every thing will s'ettle down upon the
real sectional interests of the country. Thus' let it
be. The sooner the contest is brought about, the
better for the Southern members of the Confederacy.
It will be a hard-fonght battle; but if the South can
be brought to stand true to her best interests, the
victory may yet be ours. In viesw of the thickening
evidonces of sectional strife, it behoves those who are
now looked to for guidance in Southern Councils to
study the crisis and prepare to meet it with wisdom
and holdness. Delighted would we be ta seo our own
South Carolina statesman (and. although our Great
Light is ,.xtinguished. we yet have much of ability
and experience left) forgetting past differences, and
working together to place their State once more upon
high and common ground. It is very possible that a
wise and firm course, given to her politics at this
time. will enable her to recovor her lost position and
to command the sympathy of her sister States in the
future combinations which must arise.
And here we would take occaston to differ with
opintions which have been advanced in regard to the
importance of our representation in Congress. It ii
said by many that "it matters but little what de.
scription (of politioians we seni there niow"- -"one
man will do as well as another"-" the thing is out,
&c. &c. These are generally careless and nnstudied
remarks, it is true; but they are woefully wide of the
mark and should be guarded against most cautionsly.
It is a dangerous error to say that the struggle for
Southern Rights is over aid that now we can do no.
thing more than sit down in patient submission. On
the contrary. that struggle has just begun. What
Soutih Carolina atrempted to do last year was but one
of the first evidences of the indignant uprising of an
outraged people. Her movement would certainly
havo commanded the admiration of mankind had ii
progressed as it began. Butt our Southern sisters were
not yet ready for the contest. Many of the most in
fluential citizens af our State apprehended, from thio
cause, a failure-their arguments and appeals pro
vailed, and South Carolina paused and set aside her
preparations for ntininining tier equality or declarin;
tier independetnce. This wvas truly a sad result in the
estimation of many of its and, at the time, was bit
reasonable subject of mortification. But that deci.
4ion was final as to the past. antd there all have cher
fully agreed to lot it rest. To the future, not the past
shoi.I we now turn our thoughts and bend our ene:
gies. The next struggle will be one between thi
North and the South--betwen abolition and slavt
labmr-and here sumre!y South Carolina will beoa unit
With thte exception of a miserably small and tainte'
minority, we will assuredly be together in that grea
contest. Int anticipiation then of ihis restoration
amity and union in ottr ranks, let us begin even no'
to cottnsel together, as in former days, upon the duztie
and trials which are before us. The last great effom
toe fortify anid secure our pecliar instittution is a
hand. And the most matured wisdom, the ripest ex
perience anid the most consutmate sagacity our State
and powerfully in the American Conigress, where thi
great catuse is pending and mutst soon be tried.
Tnta Cotton market, it will be perceived, has open
ed at 101 cents. Twenty-odd bales front thme planta
tion of Cot. SmNa~t.-os, pronounced "middling,
sold for that price, aitd we see no reason why the
average prices before the close of the winter shout
not range between 18 and 20 cents per pound. Then
|is a possihility, indeed, a great probability that cottot
wvill command a much higher price this Fall thtan fto
miany years past.
It is a retnarkable fact (as noticed sometime ago i
the IleraMd) that there is an entire revolution ever
twenty years in our cotton market as in every thin
else. Trhi.s bring the case planters nmay very reasomn
bly anticipate a high rice for their cotton, for ir
1835 and '6 this great Southern staiple brought be
tween I8 and 20 cents per pound, and by 1855 the
wenty years will have rolled rouind. So that bort
experience and observation teach us to look out fo1
Betsides the above mentioned, fa'ct thters are various
otther inucidets which undoubtedly tend to udvanc
the price of ttho cotton market. The tremendous
amount of gold imported from California'for the twcn
or thuree years last patst hits given rise to a very large
circulationi-insomuch that inoncy is plenty, and can
be horrowed in almost any State at the lawful per
contage-ontr Banks are also inflated and their con.
ductors are gladly circulating the capital of thaeir
respective vaults. In fact our money market is not
only far better titan it has been, but thero is every
prospect of increasing prosperity.
Besides these, variotus local causes have occurrod ir
favor of our proposition. From all qtuarters, and
particularly since cotton has comtnenced opening, we
have heard of disastrous storms, whirlwinds, floods
&c., to the very great detriment, if not tihe entire
destruction, of whole crops, reducing by their tre
mendouis and disastrotus consequences the average of
the best plantations to about one bale to every three
acres. In thu low country as well as the rest the
woriu hits destroyed entire fields, s-hortening the crop
more thanut a half and very often ruining them alto.
gether-insonmucha thmat the respective owners were
compelled to abatndon any further efforts in planting,
and hire their negroes whten and where they conven
ietntly could. Indeed every thing apparently tends to
increase the prices of the cotton market. By some
hance, wvill, or fatality, all of the aforesaid causer,
the large amtount of gold brought itto the Union, te
anual qitantity of capital in the various banks, the
rroo and increasing circuilationi of montey, the disas
:rs to the genieral crop by the fury of the elements,
he ravages of tthe boil wormi, &c., have occurred
'iuktaneouisly, thereby necessarily produeintg a
-hange int commntercial and mercantile afluuirs, and
nost cerutmly an advaunced price in thte cotton market.
Tuea world is choek-full of it. Rathter the most
larinag specimen of it we have seen latterly is one of
he last numbecrs of the Washlington Repubslic, which
epresents Sco-~r-r' election as beyonad all doubt.
W.hreas, the whtolc mass of evidence is to the eon
nry. And yet there are those who will swallow the
epublic's egregiosity without a grimace.

MassNs. EDITORs :-Seeing sti.rticle in the A d.

supposed state'of things inCGienville, I cannot re
frain from correcting th ~ipression which it is
calculated to make. I have not seen the Southern
Baptist from which you seer. to have deduced the
conclusion that a very dire and. disagreeable con
troversy exists in the religiouge.ommunity of this
-town, and that a Oi state of fei-ling among us is the
consequence. Allow me t' 'ny, I do not think
there is a just foundation far such an opinion. I
am a member of the Baptist Church in Greenville,
and have full opportunity of judging, so far as that
denomination is concerned. . No great excitement
that I an aware of. certainly no bitterness (of temper
or undue heat lirevails'.among thmi, towards other
lellnomiuations, from the eminentuPastor, who now
preaches to the Chureh,. do'wn to the humblest
individual member. - It is trule the Episcopal, Meti
odist and Presbyterian Ministerthave been preach
ing lately against immerio, and in favor of in fant
baptisn as they call itand it mnay be that their zeal
is freshly aroused by the 4ptiin of a person who
was for many years a member of a Predobaptist
Church. But opposition-tgiWmersion slnd advo
Scacy of infant sprinkling is;nothing new or strainge
with them, and nothing p'euliar to this place and
this time. It is also true that Mr. Fuit3iAn intends
to deliver some discourses on the subject 4f Itap
tisn, and you know that gentleman well enough too
coclude with ie that thor will be nothing un
christian in temper or perfoannatice on his part. I
do not charge that the other Mlinisters have mani
fested any thing of the kind in their performances,
whilst of course I differ from their conclusions.
Religious controversy maybe conductea profita
bly, and it is in vain to exp-et there will not be con
troversy, so long as radical differences exist among
the professors of re-ligion. Ins'tead of deprecating
all dispute about religious matters, my own opinion
is the World wtouldi act wise'r to' let it take its course,
and to strive to judge impartially who is right and
most conformed to the trutigof Revelation. The
truth will always gain by frie discussion, and every
sermon is to some extent p controversy for or
against it. When Paul preached the resurrection
of tlte Saviour, and the whiole -Gospel which in lts
own language is " the wisdom of God and the
power of God," it seemed i very vain, silly atid
mischievous courtesy to the Runian digtuntary, and
no doubt they concluded wiA they saw the rage of
Jews about the same matter that " both parties
were equally to blanie." But no one has a right
-to decide in a tmere spirit of worldly courtesy or
censure that " both silles are inally to hblme'' in
any religious dispute until h e ascertains thiatthie
dloctrine advocated by~bothi gually terong. Per
haps the great fault of the ago is that religious nwu

chairs uon the toeps of tables, where the frantic me,

trom the sad fate which appeared almost inevitable.
Mr. C.nAs. l1sAMtoso with his characteristic mnitii
eenee and urbantity of heart for which lie is distini
guished, in addition to his personal efibrts, had re
freshments sent from his residence, four miiles die
tanut, and futrnished indiacrimiinately to all who
choese to partake of thenm. Capt. A. J. II.micyn,
wrhose heart like his person is neither smiall nor
lean, plied his boat on Sunday, eqsposed to thte burn-.

the needy, besides affording facili'ties of transit, to
those who desired to leave their he uses.
When a portion of the lower Bridge gave way
on Sunday morning, it happened that sour umnfortu

means of escape. Their situation was peri'ous in the
extreme ;with shouts and. exclamations of terror
they endeavored anmidst the roar <,f the rushing ,
wvaters to, make themselves heard begging asesistance.
IAt this period the current was frightful ;tnd to em
bark upon it in one of our frail skiffi (bteing the
only description oif craft available) involved con
siderable risk ;yet notwithstanding the threateniing
aspect of the surging waters two brave spirits, in

Front late on Saturdaf until the following Monday
the field that presented itself for doinig good was
indeed extensive ; it is a-plcasant refleetion to call
to reniembrance the many generous traits that dii
rinig that period were maniifested. Siro! ev iden:-e

ondentin'orms us, that a negro woman died

She was fond of relating incidents of the

accurred at,'or near Granhy.
The extremely advanced age at which this

trates the truth of Mr. Calhoun's opinion,
that there is no condition of human life more
