THERE seems to be some doubt after al
whether Billy Bowlegs will go W~est. The
Savannah Courier of yesterday says:
e "While on their way to this city, we are
informed that Billy, once or twice, partook too
freely of' his fauvorite fire water." ie was patr
licular on such occasi-:ns to curse Gen. Blake,
especially when the Genieral could not hear him
On one oooasion. he went below among the
engineers and the General passed near by
when Billy lowered his voice, and with his pe.
culiar Indian emphasis, cursed-him most bitterly
-and wound up by sayinig, "lhe's rasent.-he no
general-he no big warrior." A .gentl'man
who conversed wvith Abram, thie interpreter,
informs us that the old fellow was very sullen
and moody. When asked if Billy Bowlegs
was actually going west, he shrugged his
shouldes and said, " Me hope so." Our infor
mant is of the opinion, fronm all he saw and
heard'.that th'e indians will not remove accord
ing to-agreement,.and- that we may soons expect
to hear of some stirring wvar news- frony Florida.
We trust he may he mistaken."

in consequence of the latter election coming on thena

result of our State elections is involved in considera

We reiterate the hope which we have before express
ed, that the old question of Secession and Co-uhpera
tion will not operato at the Polls. Thtere is no or
ganization whatever, that we are aware of, to thits
o ffect. At least for the party with which we have
been identified we can speak knowingly. With them
there is certainly nothing approaching to it. Expre.'
sions of amity and conciliation have been generally
interchanged between the leaders of the parties of
last year. Whether these have been candid expres
sions or not, will be decided by the state of the dif
ferent boxes, when counted out on Wednesday next.
TO THlE VOTERS OF EDIGEFIELD.
WE are requested to state on the part of Mr. iENRYv
Ha1.t., one of the candidates for Tax Collector, that
his absence from the feld for the last few weeks has
been owting to a severe attack of fever which has
greatly prostrated himn. lie is glad to be able to an
nounce to his friends and the public generally that
his physician, Dr. A. G. TEAoUE, considers him now
in a fair way for rapid recovery.
Mr. HI. has thought proper to present to the voters
of Edgefield this allusion to himself, lest somne, who
are not aware of his situtation, might stuppose that lie
bad grown indifferent to the election, which is far
from being so.
NO ONE WANTS THE OFFICE.
Tuttan is a vacancy in the nomination for Commnis
sioners of the Poor which should be filled. Thlis
vacancy wvas occasioned by the withdrawal of Mr.
.JAMEs RItuAaDSoN. The gentleman suggested in
his place (Mr. STaora sa) has also declined. We
have been at a loss to know precisely what should be
done in the premises. Our uncertaitnty was yesterday
relieved by a direction fromn the present Cuommis
sioners to renewv their nominiation of Mr. tctt.sato
soN. They regard it as a custom, almost as binding
as law, that their nomination shall stand unless the
most ample excuse be offered by the person declining.
We have thterefore replaced Mr. Rctapso's name
on thme ticket, with the understanding that said ticket
in to be the one generally run.
TO THE SOUTHERN ERA.
Omia esteemed cotemporary of Richmond, Virginia,
complains that we published in our paper a poetic
compomsition extracted from his columns for which dute
credit was not given. We assure our friend of the
Era that it was an unintentional omission. It was
not claimed by us as original. We never do tricks of
that sort.-But even a failure to- give proper credit,
for an article borrowed, Borders on- criminality. We
regret it and beg to be excused for it in this instance.
As is our almost unvarying custom to give our brethren
of the Press the full advantage of their original

think of the inpor tance of keeping up a good agricul
rural Journal in South Carolina. And we'have again
and again pointed them to the Farmer and Planter
(of Pendletony as an execllent publication of the Lind

our saggestions while very many have suffered it to

assure themr that we have examined this work with

tinue our entreaties to our liberaf farmers of Edgefield
in its behalf. Its publishers and editm ar struggling
with difficulties owing to their as yet limited sub
scription list. They must have help soon or the un
dertaking may possibly fall through. Will our en
lightened Tfow-citizens stand by and see this paper,
which seeks to advance their best interests, fail from
lack of a liberal support ? We trust not. Again we
repeat that it rihlily deserves encouragement and
should receive it.

FOR THE ADvERTISER.
LICENSE IN EDGEFIELD LLAG.
MTEssas. EnTrons:-Severe legislation to prevent
lhc manufacture and use of Spirituous Liquors is
ot of niodern date. It is by no means an origina
n-ention or improvement in jurisprudence by the
Yankees of Maine, or the people of Edgefleld. It
ins been triod at various tinics, in Englanl, Ireland
md Scotland, since 1643, and unitirmly with un
ritigated and unqualified failure. The use of Liquor
n England, was as free and uniestrited as water
antil the year above named, when the first tax
:small) was laid upon the "niakers and venders of
Ale, Beer, Cider and Perry" by the I.ong Parlia
nent, whose example was son after followed by
he Royalists, both sides deotaring that the tax
hould no lunger continue than the terminuat:o of
hie e:v:1 war then raging between them. But after
he war was over, it was found too profitable, for
3overnment to redeem its pledge, as Liquors of all
dinds were then in general use and regarded both
is a luxury and necessary of life.
This was the first excise duty ever collected in
England, whielt mode of taxation, asi Mr. Justiee
BDACKsToNE sayA, " from its first original to the
iresent time, has ever been odious to the Englith
>eople." Additonal duties were imposed in 1649,
mnd at the Restoration in 1660 the whole excise was
>haced upon a new footing and the list of " Licenses,'"
Nhich is a word as haterul to an Englishian as
l'ra' " Informer' is to an Irishman, was extended
u other trades and other artleles of ho:ne produe
ion and consumption.
Previous to the levy of this exe'sc, I can find no
omlplaint in Etglish llistory of the aLuse, or ex
cssiv*e use of spirits. But from sonie eauce or
ther, immediately after the imposition of the duty,
ho consumption of them began rapidly to increase,
mnd the anarchy and disorders attending their use
'arfully to multiply ;so much so, that early in the
-eign of George 11, the prevalence of Gn drinking,
lie cheapness of ardent spirits and thu multplica
iou of public houses for the~r retail use, were de
ounced from the pulpt and in the p'resentment of
osequencee to the health, morals and intellect of
.At length Ministers determined to put a stop to
i furthur use of Liquor, except as a medicine, and
'or this purpose an Act was passed in 173C, the him
:ory and effeets of which, deserve to be studied, by
ll who are elamorous for an increase of duty, or
ther imipedimuents to the use of spirits. The Maine
Lquor Lasw is mild a'nd leinknt to this Act, whose
Preamble is in the following words :" Whereas the
drinaking of Spirtuous ~iquors, or strong water is
become very coimnon, espucially among people of
lower, or inferior rank, the eonsant and exeesr-ive
use of which tenids greatly to the destruction of
their health, rendering them ta~t for useful labor
and bu iines, debaiuching their morals aiid inciting
heinto perpetrate all vices, and the ill consequen
eei rof t'ie excessive use of such Liqaurs, are not
eofinted to the resent generation, but extend to
tinture ages, andl tend to the dei'tructioni andu ruin of
this Kingdlom." The provisions of the Act we're
suchi as might be expected to follow a Preamble of
this sort. They wero designed not to reprtes the
vice of Gin drinaking butt to root it out altogthmer.
A duty of treenty shillings, or fur dollars and
eighty cents per gallon, was laid on all spirits. dis
:llehi at home, or imiported fromi abroa.1, exelusive
of a heavy license imposed upon all retailer.. Ex
traordinary encouragement was at thre same time
heldl out to informers and a fine of one hundred
pounds was ordered to be rigorously enforced against
those wvho even inadvertantly shouldl sell ste small
est quantity of Liquor that had not paid the full duty.
hlere was an act, which might, one would think,
have satisfied the bitterest eniemy of Ruin, but in
stead of the anticipated effects, it proucted those
direet'y opposite. 'The respectablle dealer wiithd rew
frwn a tradle, proscribed by the Legislature, andu at
whic.h lie could no longer manke an honest living.
But as the appetite for Liquor, or some other stim
lus being foundled in the comnst:tittion of man's na
tre, could not be destroyed, it must be gratified in
sonme way, so the spirit business fell almost entirely
into the hiatnda of tho lowest and most protligate
characters, who as they had nothing to hose, were
not detered fro:n engaging in the retail sale of un
licensed liquors, especially when backed by the
populace, who readily and rightly espoused the cause
of their best friends the smuggler, and unlicensed
dealers. The Revenue officers were openily as:sault
ed in the heart of London and other great cities.
Itformuers were hunted down like wild beasts, and
itnarhiy, drunkenn.ess, idleness and crime increased
wvth frightful rapidity. A dulteration of Liquor till
thein unknown, was extensively practised by the Re
tailer who paid hiis license, in order that lie might
compete with the smuggler and illicit dealer, wha
defid the law. The Earl of Cholinondeley an
nonced from his place in the Hlouse. of Lords, that
at the very momnt, when the sale of spirits was
declared illegal and the suippresion otf it attempted
by every possible means, upwards of scen millions
of gallons were annually smuggked into and eon
smed in London and the vicinity without paying
one cent or duty. " Within two years of the pass
ing of thc Act,"' says TIYDaL, in his Continuation
of Rappin, " it had become so odious and contempt
ible that policy, as well as humanity forced the Com
missioners of fixcise to mitigate its penalties." The
sanme hlistorian mentions that during the twoo years
in question, no fewer thant twelve tho',sand person.
were convicted of offiees connected with the sale
Under such circumstances, Government hadl but
one course to pursue, which was to give up the un
equal struggle, and accordingly in 1742, after the
short lived ex!atene of six years, and four of those
in a dying or deadl condition, the Act was repealed
and such moderate duties imposed, as were calcula
ted to incease tho Revenue by increasing the con
sumption of legally distilled and legally retailed
spirits. The Bill for this purpose was vehemerntly
opposed in the House of Lords by meet of the
Bishops and many of the Lay Peers, who exhausted
their Rhetoric i depicting. the horrors that would
o.ul fr.m tratini thme practie of Rumn drinking.
that tmteve unanswerably replied',1
tha teherte evils of the Practice right be it
wasn impossible to'repress then by prohibtory -
actnents and that the attempt to do so had been
prodletive of far more miuchWie, thair had ever re
sulted, or could be tpieted to result, from the
greatest abuse of spirits.
Sueb is a brief iwtine of this celebrated embargo
on the use of spirits, and such the fate of this first
attempt, by the strongest and best Government on
the face of the earth, to take away the taste for auch
an auicle, or at least lesser W consumption. The
experiment failed because it was at war with nature,
who is ever victorious over the fully of man. Eut
it is strange that tis same Q9oernment, disregard
ing the instruction and saggoat:n of its own history,
should have tried at a latet day, again to reverse
the law of God which reuires the use of stimulus
by man, to be again defeated.
A still sadder tale can be t41of Legis!ation against
spirits in Ireland. Wouldthat there were space to
give the harmwing story in ll its details, but if any
one disputes it he shall be pointed to the Record.
Certainly if entire prohibition :of the distillation or
retail of spirits, or if heavy taxes to prevent either
in an undue degree, enfore by constant surveilance
of the police and severest regulations of the military
could make a people sober, The Irish would be the
most so of any nation on earth. Besides other ty
rannical enactments, in orde to-encourago spics and
to bid for treaso- among brotheus, as well as to make
the possessors of property OIn heartily in the sup
pression of illicit distillation-and retailing, the novel
expedient was here resorted: to of imposing a heavy
fine on every Parish, Townlaid, banorland or Lord
ship, in which an unlicenscd Still was found, while
the unfortunate wretches cailght working in it, were
subjected to trnsportation fir even years.
But instead of putting down illicit distillation.
these unheard of cruelties rendered it universal, and
filled the country with bloodshed and even rebellion
to the civil authority, as well m' the military force of
the Government. Whole Districts were absolutely
disorganized, the only resultt being the exasperation
of tire populace and the perpetration of the most
revolting atrocities by then"ud the military. The
Rerenue Commissioners reported in 1811 that in
the teeth of the above barborous statutes and in
despite of the exertions of thepolice and military to
prevent it, six millions of galons were consuted in
Ireland annually that evadeo both the duty on dis
tillation and the license on retailing. It is said by
the Rev. Mr. CnmcNEsTLa, in his valuable pamphlet
on the Irish Distillery Les, publ:shed in 1818,
that " The Irish system seemed to have been form
ed, in order to perpetuate iIkbggling and anarchy.
It has culled the evils of both savago and civilized
life, and rejected all the -advantages which they
contain. The calamities of iviljzed warfare, are in
general inferior to those produced by the IriliDis
tillery Laws." Hence Engnd was driven in 1823,
not by humanity, but for tlie sake of her Revenue,
to reduce the tax on distibItier-And license. The
I consumption of Liquor that paid duty, immediately
arose in round numbers from 2,300,000 gallons to
8,000,000 annually, at which'it has continued, with
slight fluctuation ever sinep.'ometimnes much more,
soietimes a little less. Ireland was an unfortunate
country in which to make such an expemiment, be
cause not only of the tempcrament of her mn, but
of their extreme poverty bjrenson of British taxa
tin and consequent inability~ to buy Tea, Coflee or
Tobacco, as a substitute. .
The History of Scotlandfurnishes the same in-~
struotire lesson, as does, r' ire say, that of many
States on the Continent, a iyet wre Amerceans in
umany portions oif this ex sive country, wrhich is
breaking in two of its owi lht, disregarding the
admonition of. hy which
our " peculiar institutions' against that law of God
in the constitution of man, which -requres that he
shall use some stimulus. For a long time thme right
of citizens, to distill, retail; or drink Liquor as they
choose, was respected in. this country and nothing
but moral suasion was evr'rdremned of to prevenst

doing evil, so she copied the Mainism upon her ownm
statute book. Rhode Island has (lone 1:kew ise, and
many of the other States have tried untsuccesfumlly
to do so, but with every prospect of success, unless
the revulsion soon eomzes, which Ihistory declares
Here is a paragraph taken at random front one of
the Boston papers :" It is said that the Commtitee
of the friends of the new Ligior law in Bloston are
prepared to make one hundred complaints against
Iunlicensed persons in that city for violation of the
Ilaw, whenever it is thought proper to commelne
ope'rations. The Traaeller says, it is the united
testimony of the Watch Department, that there
never was so munch drunkenness at nigkt ins that
city, as at the present time." I see by the last Delta
that the Yanikee influence in New Orleans has
induced the Legislature of Louisiana to submit it to
popular vote, whether ariy " License to retail" shall
be granted or not. This incidenat of itself, shows
which of the Southern States is most Northern in
its politics. All of these circumstances along with
the known fact that the "Suns of Temperance" is
an active, butt secret organization, extending through
out thia whole continent, together with the addit':on
al fact, that the issue of " License, or No License"
has beenm sprung simultaneous'y upon nearly every
Village in South Carolina, at, the recent municipal
elections, induce the belief inmmy mind, that a mnoe
ment is on foot to legislate the ilainc Liquor Law
into the Palmetto State, the impolicy of which I
will further expose in
TEMPERANCE BUT LICENSE.

Missas. Enrouss:-As the Baptist Church of
this Village was undergoing repairs, I fee that an
acknowledgment of Christian courtesy is due the
brethren of the Mlethodist Church, for the use of
their House of W~orshlip, in this Village, for several
nights during the protracted meeting at Horn's
Creek, which resulted in Twasty-onme Baptisms.

CHARLESTON, Oct. 2d, 1852.
Muum.s. EDIToRs:-The weather for the past
w4 ek has been delightfully clear, cool and plensant.
A hancin; Autumn atmasphere, atd a sky of corn
lean brightness, have somewhat revived the flagging
energies, and driven away t'ie enervatiug ennui
which those are subject to. whom business or an
in:tbility to get away compels to spend the summer,
!oug and hot as it is, in a sulry, suffocating and
crowdel Southern city. But I fear we shall have
some weeks of mu :quitoe.s, dust and hot weather
yet. Our IndiaSuumer is yet to come.
The Yt.low Fever is still prevail:ng to some ex
tent in our milst. The Report this morning shows
a list uf seven deathas from Yellow Fever for the
last twenty-four hours. About thirty have died of
it during the last four days. But witiudll our Fever
and other sickness, they are dying faster at Savannah
thian they are here. The last weekly report showed
a mortality of one death in every 615 of the inhabi
tants, while our report f.r the same week, showed
only one death in every 651, and that was the largest
bill of murtality (66) that we have had in this city
since the epdeanic that followed the great fire in
'38. Business of all kinds is rather dull, and I
presume will remain so until the first of November,
when we shall look for some increased activity and
liveliness in the narket.
We had every prospect of a most extensive and
profitable Fall trade, and unusual preparations were
made by our merehats to meet it with an adequate
supply of goods, and I fear that a large portion of
then will have to remiain on hand for another sea
son. The uainmoth wholesale establishment of
BANCROFT, BE-rrS & MAnsna6ALL, has opened under
great disad:nntages, but I understand they are fill
ig large orders frots various parts of the South
anad West. It is the best finished and most exten
sive house of the kind in the Union, not even
S-ravArt's marb!e pn!acc in Broadway, New York
excepted. I understoodh last week that they filled
orders to the anmount of $90,000 in two days ; if
they can do such a business as that in a dull season,
I should infer that they would negociate hearysales
when -usiness was brisk.
A man by the name of Jonts A. Wit.Ev, was ae
ident y s!.ot on Wednesday last, by :l.e discharge
of a pistol in the hands of a lad. le died of his
woun Is this moring, and a Coroner's Inquest was
held over h's body, and the verdict returned "ac
eid. ntilly shot." Fire-arms should be kept ont of
the reach of biys, and many grown up anen could
dispense with the use of rerolvers and six shooters,
withoaut doing any injustice to themselves, or the
community at large.
The first nunber <.f a new daily paper was issued
here on the first inst., called the Daily Constitu
tional Union, published by J. B. Nixos, 48 Broad
Street, and Edited by M. JuDGE MOORE. It is
Whig in polities, and advocates the election of Sco-r
and GitAmA , the union of the States, and the giving
of the election of the Electors of President and
Vice-President to the people. It is a respectable
looking sheet, well gotten up, neatly printed and
editel with so:ie ability. It will have to d -pend
mrain!y for iti support beyond the limits ot its own
State, as the Palhetto soil does neat seem prolific of
Whig principles, especiatly of the Scorr and GsA
Ha.M school. ARCHER.
