EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 8,1852.
7' WE refer our readers to a communication on
another column, addressed by our representative, Mlaj.
JoHN C.-ALUa'. to the Iouse of Representatives, in
referefte to the'difficulty which seems to have arinej
uporsthe subject of(his holding Federal office t the
tinm of his efectfrtr. Tie explanation is satisfactory
so-us, and we hope it will be so considered by the Le
gi'slature. Standing however upon technicalities,
9a that body seefra disposed to do, (and very properly
in the main,) a new election may be ordered. If so,
We. take it for granted that the same member will be
returned if he desires it. This, we believe, is the
mnal course, and one which rccommends itself to the
rod sense of every one.

the Capitol at Washington, upon the death of DANIEL

and slept in the room where he labored. One of his

of his death. The blow was evidently aimed with
murderous intent, for the jugular vein was entirely sev

from the RepuMlican. There was insurance upon the

through considerable tribulation this Fall. It has ill

- I-r wiill ho seen, among the Lecgisiativo proceedings
of last week, that Judge EVINxs was duly elected to
represent South Carohtna in the United States Senate,
for the six years beginning with the 4th of Miarch
next. The Judge is an excellent man, and should he
succeed in discharjging the duties of his new position
as efficiently as he has done those of thme Bencht, thme
State will have additional reason to be proud of her
Edgefimeld's preference was of course for another.
But shme has no complaint to make. She knows her
self sufficiently honored in contributimtg omne Senator
to the service of the State. Feeling thu. sihe had an
other son fitted to m-ustain the characte: of Somuth (a
rodina upon'the same floor, she ventitred 'to present
him for the State's acceptance. The Legislature hans
decided that a different person should occupy that
high position, and we yi.eld ottr hearty accord. We
do this thte more cheerfully that our candidate hans thld
himself aloof, in the qttiet of his home, awaitmtg thmat
decision as in duty bound, withottt an ehlort to direct
or control the body whose duty it was to make it. All
other candidlates mnay have donte likewise. If so, they
have no cauise of repreach, no ground fornmortificationt;
but shounld all be contented to hope that the Settator
elect may. by the wisdom of his course, reflect much
honor upon himself and thme State lhe represent.
CONVENVTION OF EDIlTORS, PUBIlShlERS, &C.
Tats body met in Colttmhia on Wedmtesdamy thme
first inst. As we anticipated, there wvas a highly
respectable attendance of thme craft. Mr. P. 3M. WALt
.AcE, of the Xpasrtan, presidled over the deliberation
of the meeting. and Mr. IR. M1. S-rOKEs, of the Lau
ensille Hecrald, acted as Secretary. Perfect har
mny prevailed. The business, which called these
gentlemen together, was transacted with exetnplary
dispatch. A permanent association was formed under
the name of the " Somuth Carolina Press Associtatiott,"
and a Constitution was adoptedl for its proper govern
ment. It was agreed to hold annual meetings for thme
future. The officers for th. coming year are RI. W.
GttsEs President-P. 31. Wari.t.AcE and WV. R.|
TAT.a, Vice-Presidents--E. HI. Barr-rON, SecretaryI
and Treasurer, and T. J. WaRREN. Orator. The
net meeting of the associationt will be held on tihe
first Wednesday in December 1853.
The members wvere kitndly invited by thme hospita
ble proprietor of the American Hotel, 3Mr. JA NNEYT,
so a dinner on Thwssday last. We observe also thtat'
magnifacent entertainment "' was given to the
body, os Wednetsday eveningf, bty time Editors of
Columbia and other citizents. In short every thing
connected with the occasion of thmetr assemsblitt,
passed ofg admirably..
We had expected to-kave been with otur esteemed
Blrethren en that ocecui-ion, but cireuimstances of a
painful natutre prevented one of us and unavoidah!e
litidrances the other. It affords us pleasure, however,
ti say, fbr eurselves and for the Proprietor of the
Adertiser, that we may be considered as hmavimng
subscribed the Constitution which wvas adopted, and
tmat we will take the first opportunity of applying!
regularly for admission itnto the Association. 31a~y it

Wi' oliservee thai 35r. AsntxORE, one of the promi

into the Legislature of our State a Bsill to diinish

continue them entirely between tihe lit of 3May and.
te 1st of October. We imagine this wol provo to

In the Senate, on Thursday, Mr. GRIFFIN from the 0
Committee on Incorporations, reported several Bills of
Incorporation without amendment. t
Mr. CnEsNU'T, from the Committee on Agriculture.,
submitted an unfavorable Report on the Itesoluition of
Senator G1sT, in respect to the expediency of passing
a law to keep stock within an enclosure, to obviate
the- necessity of other fences. (This is w hait we ex
peeted wo(ld be the fate of this proposition. The re
port of the commhittee will d.,obtless he sustained. An
enactment of this kind might do well enougt in cer
tain thickly setdett and generally cleared districts,
such as Fairfield fur instance. But in much the larger
portion of our State tle forests are too extensive and
the mast, pasturage, and so forth, too vataibla to
admit of this policy as yet, It notidd be premiaturely
debarring many citizens old privileges, to the use of
which the owners of real estate themselves have
scarcely ever interposed any objection. It fact the
largest land-huldej, as well itas the snmallest, would he
put to great inconvenience. For whercas now their
droves of cattle, hogs, &c., roam at large during the
summer, over their own possessions a well as their
neighbors', under Mr. GIsT's law they would be forced
to the heavy extra expense of extensive fencing to reap
anything like the same advantages.]
Mr. MIosEs, from the Judiciary, made unfavorable
reports on several Bills to increase the number of
Magistrates. Ile presented a favorable report upon
the bill to alter tihe Constitution so as to make Lexiig.
ton the only name of the District, which now heasrs
it in common parlance, Saxe Gotha haviig been the
name heretofore by which it was recognizel in the
constitution. (This measure, havitig nlow been before
two Legislatures, will become law.]
31r. MazycK, of the 'Finance Committee. reported
unfavorably on the petition of the Stockholders of the
Hamburg Bank. for the renewal of their charter, and
made a favorable report for the incorporation of a new

has the prestige of having been nearly sucacsfulon a

The bill to limit the Jurisdiction of 3fagistrates, in
smaall and mean cases, to their respective beats, was
discussed, voted upon and checkmated.
The bill to authorize the State to grant additional
nid in the construgion of tife Spartathurg antid 'niotn
Railroad, was agreed to-yuns 27, nays 1-1. So it was
sent to the House for concurrence.
A bill to prevent assailts with concealed weapons,
was also agreed to and sent to the lIhonse.
Nothing else of interest transpired in the Senate ott
In the House, on the same day, the following parti
culars are worthy of note.
Mr. McGow.s, fron tile committee on the military,
eported unfavorably ot a Bill authorizing Colonels of
Regiments to levy their own fines ; also,.ons a bill to
dimini.-h the duty and reduce the salary of. Adjutant
and Inspector General. 3r. Csossos preseinted the

On Friday time 3d inst., butt little of interest occur
red. Several lavorable reports were umadle uponm tihe
chartering of Banks. Omne of thmese, we perceive, is
for outr nieighborimg village of New berry.
A Bill to incorporate the Biechanige Batnk (above
allmded toe), received its secnmd readinig, and wvas sent
to thme House. Several oilier bills mof ineorponrationi

D.4NIEL WEBlSTER IN PRIVAtTE,
ON time outsiide of this week's AdLcrliser, we hmave
placedl two letters from the pen of Dayist. WEisTER
wimch have recently been goinmg the runmmds of time
papers. They are said to he taken fromi a ciillectioni

ON the 11th ultimoQueen VICTOarIA read her speech,
rt the British Parliament. After expressing het"deep
Orrow" for the death of AaTuR, Duke Wellington,
ier Majesty goes on to exprei the friendly relations
ow happily subsisting with her government and all
ther foreign powers.
During her remarl's We' find the following allurion
o the recent difficulty between our country and Eng
anld, arising out of the fishery question:
" Frequent land well founded complaits on the part
f my North American colonies of infractions. hy cit.
zens of the lInited States. of the Fishery Contertifon

nV subjects have been firmly maintained, the friendly
pIrit in which the question has been treated. induces
ne to hope that the ultimate result may be a mututally
>eneficial extension and improvement of our commer
iial intercourse with that great Republic."
Thts we perceive that the Queen chooses to deno
nintate the steamers. wbich her government sent for
the protection of the Fisheries, decorated with port
loles, and charged with those infernal engines whose
rude throats" thun4ed! agninst our defenceless

It has beensaid that there inothing in names. The
reat genius of her majesty's realm wrote that "a rose
by any other name would smell as gweet,." and we
presume she is not inclined to doubt its truth. It may
be that those war steatners were adorned with port
holes merely for the sake of ornament, and that their
ennnen .-ere intended to roar only on occasIons of
estivity-but' our trembling hssherinen undoubtedly
were of a.different opinior.
The latter portion, however, of the clause above
quoted shows that John ull and Brother Jonathan
are desirous of inutal peace and harmony.

The newis from Fran-e is highly interesting. In
deed ere this we may take it for grarsted that NAPO,
L.:oX Ill sits upon the French throne. The Senate
after deliberation have voted to Louis NAroj.zoN the
Senotlus Consultuma for the re-establishment of the
Etnpire. In consequeice whereof, iin accordance wit I
tha power thus placed in his hands, the Prince imme
diately issted his decree convoking the people through
out the Republic to pronouce for the acceptance o
rejection of the Senulus Consultum. This pretende
piece of repuiblicantism in offering tie acceptance o
rejection of the crown to the people, is plainly nothin
hut sham, and perfectly in accordaice with the polic]
of NArot.EOx. In fact the President of the Senat
himsef in his spe'cl to that boody proclaims or rathe
commands the French vote, viz: " The popular in
stitnct which acclaimed NAroj.EoN I, to-day revealini
itself anew, hails by the name of NAP'oLEON 111, thi
Prince n% ho for four years has governed France will
so much wisdom and skill." The following is tie pro
position presented for the acceptance of the people.
" The people will the establishment of the impe

Xe.natus ConsutiIum of the Nov. 1852."
I.om'me NA ro.F.o in his message to time Senate ex
presses his cotnviction of the dangers of accepting an
wearinig the crown, but quiets all his fears and appre
hendions by the fact. that as he represents the popula

bly over-rated. Tht1. olier contained a piece of advice
* which we transcribe pmeeisely as it -was given to us.
" My young friend," saijthe Western man, " as long
as you see efore you at home ajn prospect of a com
petency, remain in Carolina. I have fully tried both
countries, and this in my honest opinion." It was an
honest opinion, fur it fell from a man unusually free
from p ejudice, yet strongly attached to the State ol
i It would t mponible,'within the limits oif a news
paper article to argue at length the advantages and din
advantages of old and new countries. brome of ite
most prominent we will rapidly glance at before con
cluding these refnarks.
vfre new States have tie advantage geerally in
fresmness of soil, and when this is said the marvellon'
story of their superiority ik.ended.
The old States have proverbially the advantage in
point of health. the means of education and the facil
ities for dispoing of produce at convenient markets
I and for remunerative prices. They have the advan
SItage n the moral and political elements of their social
organization. And, under the improved systemr o
culture which is rapidly gainin' ground, they are hle
little, if at all, behind in the aggiegate of their farm
ing and planting products. True, we hate the diffi
I cubies of worn and 'npoverished Is-nds to conteni
with. But thre tork of reclaiming them, as proved h
the experience of numbers already, is a work tha
pays well, and will continue to pay better every yea
as true agrienitural science advances. Besides, to I
main who feels properly the duty of acling well bi,
part in life, there is real satisfaction in hefnrgconscirm
I of the fact, that while filling his cofers f)y slow hit
regular additions, he is at the same time bringinj
b-auty out of deformity, prosperity out of " decay
gloom and desolation"-.that he is repairing and re
r newing scenes which once were of the brightest char
acter and are still rendered dear by most gratlefrl re
miniscences-that he is, by his own determined lan
I and skill. (under the blessing of an approving Provi

of perhaps the same old fields by whose almost spon

argument like this, we are aware, may ranch ht fev

We ta might go on- to rpeak of tilieeneffts whie

munities, growing directly out of the adverse ciremtI
stances of a poor soil nidstinted nieans. WVe migi

which have hecome thea.umiration of mankindl, an
wvould carry us far beyond our limits. Neither don '
think it necessary to ocenpf' this grostmd in our ir
stance. We are among those who believe tint ol
South Carolina is stil one of the garden spots of th
earth. Our lands even are as fertile upon the who!
as those of any State this side of the Mississippi.
Even in view of money making alone, there is yet
among us a large scope for successful exertion. WV
are all, or nearly all, coming to our senses rapidl
upon the subjiect of preserving and improving the lill
and valleys of our beloved country, (for Carolinai
our country, and would that we all felt it more nn
more !) Those hills andl valleys are even at this da:
far from being exhausted. And if our valuedl old cii
izens, and active, imtelligent young people womuhi giv,
up this migratory spirit, by which they are beitng itn
duly impelled, and wotul stand firm with elainish at
tachbment to their homes atnd firesides-if they' wotih
dt-ernine to make it thme proud business o'f their live
to develop what isyet left to na by the beneficetnt Give1
of all Good, in twventy years (with impartial legishatiot
on thme part of the Federal Government and fostertn;
provisitna on thme part of our State Government) thi:
dear country of onirs would be seen to " bhosomi n
thes rose." Yes, when pZalifornia's goldetn streami
shall be spokena of as brillianit but deceptive paths t<

erwnedl with fruits and flowers, holding in one hant
sheaves of' rich grain, as the mark of her abundae

REST FOR TiiE PILMAETTOS,
Tat: Committee on the Military have reported
favorably on a " Bill to exempt memabers of the Pal.
metto Regiment from Militia and Patrol ditty.'
That's exactly right according to our notions. Wi
have thmoughit it ought to be dlone ever since the
rave fellows returnued fromt the wars, and we rejtoice
to see that there is now a prospect of its being carried
into efg'et. We knowt nimabers of men whor, for
pasitng through thme cotiparatively sitneenre service
of holding oflice sevetn years, are nowv upon the " free
l'ist," grinning from timea to time with the most pro
vokinug self-comuplacency upon those of us whoi have
still to " toat our shot-guns" int the ranaks. Now we
maintain (althongh it will not help us ttndiviuttally
one speck, for we are not Mexicans,) that the Pal
mettoet, each one of whotm has endured more ande
done mrore to hotnor the name of Carolina thtan any
forty militia Captains or Colnels either, shotuld be
aded to this list forthwith, Common justice, to say
nothing of gratittude, demnandls it at the huands of unrt
Legisatura, and1 we trust this lBill will not be left
among the unfinished business of the present Session.

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN( EAMBURG
On Wednesd ny night la1st aMbout ten 'clock,
our town w as disturbed by the cry of fire. The
fire originated in the l'iantter' IItel, owned by
James lathenvy, and occupied by Iim and W.
C. Bewley na residetctes. It is a tenement 11111e,
and is noi known in which department the fire
originnted, but was first seen burning from Bew'
lev's tenement, and burned with such rapidity
a' to give but littie time.to save any (lting, and
that in niti- danaged condition.
Mr. 3latilelv, i'st nearly all his stik of goods
and furniture,'alountinig to about $3.500 inde
pendent of the Hotel. lie ihad no inlsulrance,
except $100, on the I lot el.
The next caugit was the Grocery Store of
Messrs Brinldh-l & Rosnm'nd, whlichl Was soonbl
enveloped il l 'ines, griving time to save but lit
tie. Their loss, about $4-,000, pretty well cn
vered hv insurance. The house bieliiged to Rt.
W. Owings. We were not able to learn wheth
er it was insured or not.
The la-t. was :t Intrge two story wood build.
ing, owm-d by the fatmbura Bank, in which
were two, store ronfins and two private residen
Ces. One hlnir the honue waoq ocenplied by
I.1.onard Suber, as a grocerv store on first story
and the second, as a dwelling. 31r. tutber lost
nearly all of his stock tof goods and furni:ire.
lie was 1111 in-nred to the amoint $(iOO on hiS
stock of- groverie. lie is the worst snlTi-rer
amtlonig tuniftortunate, as his :l . malily, consisted
in his store and hiuse furniture.
The other hal w.sOr-ullied Iy John Usher,
as a grocery store, and Wilninm .fitler, as a fam
ily residence. Mr U-,her's loss is abont $4000,
fully covered with insulrance. Mr. Miller had
no insurance on ils h urniture, but saved the
bett portionl (of it.
The block. conisting of these three bniblings
were coittnule in the short titme fot about an,
hour and a halt. The houses burnel with sueh
raptidity. that it was impossible for the Engine
Conipanies to do more than they did.
