EDGMrIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 8, 1852.
gB- WE refer our readers to a communication on
another column, addressed by our representative, 31aj.
Joln C.-ALUMN, to the Ilouse of Representatives, in
refereitee to the-difficulty which seems to have aritew
npon, the subject of'his holding Federal office et the
tinm of his efectinn. The explanation is satisfactory
s-us, and we hope it will be so considered by the Le
gislature. Standing however upon technicalitics,
a that body seerr" disposed to do, (and very properly
in the main,) a new election may be ordered. If so,
iso Lake it for granted that the same member will be
retumed if he desires it. This, we believe. is the
tynal course, and one which recom-nends itself to the
god sense of every one.

day's proceedings, not having room to copy them in
In the Senate, on Thursday, Mr. GRIFFIN from the
Committee on Incorporations, reported several Bills of
Incorporation without amendment.
Mr. CHEsNUT, from the Committee on Agriculture,
submitted an unfavorable Report on the Resoluition of
Senator GIST, in respect to the expediency of passing
a law to keep stock within an enclosure, to obviate
the- necessity of other fences. [This is what we ex
peeted wovid be the fate of this proposition. The re
port of the committee will d-btess he sustained. Ani
enactment of this kind might do well enough in cer
t Lain thickly settled and generally cleared districts,
Huch as Fairfield for'nstance. But in much the larger
portion of our State the forests are too extensive and
the mast, pasturage, and so forth, too vanmable to
admit of this policy as yet, It would be prematurely
debarring many citizens old privileges, to the use of
which the owners of real estate them.selves have
scarcely ever interposed any objection. In fact the
largest land-holde., as well as the smallest, would he
put to great inconvenience. For n% hereas now their
droves of cattle, hogs, &c., roam at large during tie
summer, over their own possessions as well 'as their
neighbors', under Mr. GIS-T'S law they would be forced
to the heavy extra expense of extensive fencing to reap
anything like the same advantages.]
Mr. Moss, from the Judiciary, made unfavorable
reports on several Bills to increase the number of
I Magistrates. Ile presented a favorable report upon
the hill to alter the Constitution so as to niake Lexitng
1 ton the only name of the District, which now hears
it in common parlance, Saxe Gotha having been the
name heretofore by which it was recognized in the
constitution. [This measure, havig now been before
Itwo Legislatures, will he-comne law.]
Mr. M AZYCK, of the 'Finance Committee. reported
tmnfavorably on the petition of the Stockholdrrs of the
Hambnrg Bank. for the renewal of their charter, and
made a favorable report for the incorporation of a new
Bank in Colunbia; to be called the Exchangc Bank.
[How is this 1 Wonder what oir Bank has dono to
be thrown out of favor! Some informality in the
ite Senate received Judge EvAss' letter of ae
ceptance as United States Senatnr.
Senate sent a message to the IIouse proposing in go
into a ballot for Law Judge on Saturday the 4th inst.
[We un.'erstand that DAwINs, YoUNs and SuLt.t.
TA! are spoken of for this- seat. The first mentioned
has the prestige of having been nearly successful on a
former occasion, which will go far to elect him.]
The bill to limit the .htrisdiction of Magistrates, in
small 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 tie Spartashurg and I'niot
Railroad, was agreed to-yuas 27, nays 1.. So it was
sent to the Iose for concurrence.
A bill to prevent assaults with concealed weapons,
was also agreed to and sent to the lionse.
Nothing else of interest transpired in the Senate otn
In the House, on the same day, the following parti
culars are worthy of note.
Mr. McGow.ts, from the committee on the military,
seported unfavorably on a Bill atilorizing Colonels of
Regiments to levy their own fines ; also,.on a hill to
diminish the duty and reduce the salary of. Adjutant
and Inspector General. Mr. Cnosso% presented the
report of the minority in favor of th last named Bill.

DANIEL WEBSTER IN PRIVATE,
ON thme outside of this week's Adeertier, we have
plncedl two letters front thme pen of DANIF.I. WEasTER
whichl have recently been goimng mthe roauds of thme
papers. Thmey are said to lbe taken from a csollectionm

Ox the 11th ultimo Queen VICTORtA read her speech
in the British Parliament. After expressing het "deep
torrow" for the death of ARTua, Duke Wellington,
[Ier Majesty goes on to express the friendly relations
rtow happily subsisting with her government and all
atier foreign powers.
During her remarfes we find the following allusion
to the recent difliculty between our country and Eng.
land. arising out of the fishery question:
Frequent rind well founded complaints on the part
nf my North American colonies of infractions. hy cit
izens of the tinited States. of the Fishery Conrtetion
of 1818, induced me ts dispatch. fur the protection of I
their interest a class of vessels better adapted to the i
service tian those which haid been previously employ
ed. This step has led to discussions wiih the govern
ment of the United States: and while the rights of
my subjects have been firmly maintained, the friendly
spirit in which the question has been treated. indnces
me to hope that the ultimate result may be a ntittully
beneficial extension and improvement of our commer
cial intercourse with that great Republic."
Thus we perceive that the Queen chooseis to deno
minate the steamers, which her government Pent for
the protection of the Fisheries, decorated with port
holes, and charged with those infernal engines whose
"rude throats" thinik4ed against our defenceless
skiffiT, nothing niore than "a class or vessels better
adapted to the service than those which had been pre
It has been said that there is nothing in names. The
great genius of her majesty's realm wrote that ,a rose
by any otier' name would smell as sweef,-' and we
presume she is not inclined to doubt its truth. It may
he that those war steamers were adorned with port
holes merely for the sake of ornament, and that their
cannei were intended to roar only con occations of
festivity-but our trembling hiehenten undoubtedly
were of a.diferent opiniot.
The latter portion, however, of the clause above
quoted shows that John Bull and Brother Jonathan
are desirous of mutual peace and harmony.
The speech further recommends the adoption o(sncft
a liberal, just and generOnypolicy towards Irelaid as
shall cause her to rally front the depression into which
she has been stink by the sufyering of late years.
Nothing of importance has yet come before Parlia
ment. Mr. Villiers gave notice that on the 22d uit.
he would place a disteinct motion before the House
with the intention of compelling Ninisters to declare
their policy decidedly and unequivocally, as their
language had been vague and defective. This motion
we trust -will he productive of beneficial results. Mr.
V. was supported by Lord Joti Russxi., Mr. ConnEN,
3fr. Gt..sosTror, Lord PItAst RRTON, and Mr. IHoxa.
The neis front Fran-e is highly interesting. In
deed ere this we may take it for grastod that NAro
I LFOIll sit upon the French throne. The Senate
after deliberation have voted to Louts NAroLeKox the
SeNotlus Conoullum for thie re-establishment of the
Empire. In consequence whereof, in accordance with
the. power thus placed in his hands, the Prince imme
diately issued hitis decree convoking the people through
out the Republic to pronouce for the acceptance or
rejection of the Senuus Corsudlitm. This pretenled
piece of repttblicanisin it oftTring the ncceptance or
rejection of the crown to the people. is plainly nothing
Ihtt sham, and perfectly in accordance n% ith the policy
of NAI'ot.EON. In fact the President of the Senate
himsetf in bis speecl to that body proclaims or rather
commands the French vote, viz: " The popular in.
stinct which acclaimed NArot.EoN 1, to-day revealing
itself anew, hails by the name of NAPo.EoN 111, the
Prince iho for four years has governed FrInce with
sointieh wisdom and skill." Tihe following is the pro
position presented for the acceptance of the people.
" The people will the establisliment of the impe
rial dignity in the person of Louis NAroIt.ox HONA

Hos.artn-re famtily, in the mannier prescritswd by the
Srea Consultuin of the Nov. 1852."
J.ot'ts NaroL.oY in his messitge to the Senate ex
presses his coneviction of thte dangers of accepting and
wearing thte crown, but quiets all his fears and appre
hensions by the fact. that as be represents the Ippulat

however of experience we believe there is quite enough
in the reason of the theing to suistain that side of the

overstrained to some ; yet we.believe it to be founded

never shall forget two remarks, mode to us by gentle
men of expertence and intelligence nearly fifteen

freshness of soil, and when this is said the muarvellonig
story of their superiotity =.ended.
The old States have proierbially the advantnge in
point of health, the means of education and the facil

and for remunerative prices. They have the advan.

organi7.ation. And, tnder the improved systemi (if
culture which is rapidly gaining grotmd, they are but
little, if at all, behind in the aggregate of their farm

culties of worn and impoverished lands to contend
, with. Bet tre' wurk of reclaiming them, as proved by
the experience of numbers already, is a work that

man who feels properly the duty of acting well his

of the fact, that while filling his coft-s hy silow bnt

We might go on- to speak of thle henedts whiefi
have often restulted to individuals anti to crni
mutnities, growing diretly out of the adverse cfremW.
-stances of a poor soil anid stinted iWeans. We might
allutde to the many uisefulhand even noble traits whicli
are called into being by the. compelling power of im.
perious necessity. We might tell of men who hrave
arisen to the highest pit'-h of renown, of nations
which have become the :.miration of mankindl, ant

South Carolina is still one ~of the garden spots of thi
earth. Our lands even are as fertile upon ther whlole
as those of any State this- side of the Mississippi.
Even in view of money making alone, there is yet
among us a large scoipe for anecessful exertion. We
are all, or nearly all, coming to our senses rapily3
upon the subject of preserving anti improving the ihlb
and valleys of our beloved country, (foir Cartolina is
our ctoutntry, and would that we all felt it more n m
mtire!) Those hills mind valleys are even at this tda
far from being exhausted. And if our valuedl tobl cit
izens, and active, intelligent young people would give
up this migratory spirit, bmy whsich they are being in
duly impelled, and would stand firm with elanuish at
tachmnent to their homes antd firesites-if they would
tdetermitne to make it the proud business of their lives
to develop what isyet left to us by the benefice~nt G'iver
of all Good, in twenty years (wvith impartial legilaitionu
on the part of the Federal Gtvernment and fostertng
provisions on the part of our State Government) this
dear country of onrs would be seen to " bhtosstom as
the rose." Yes, when california's gtolden streams
shall be spoken of as brilliant but deceptive paths to
wealth, 8. Carolina shall yet be as a yonthful goddess,
eruwnetd with fruits and fltowers, holding in one hand
sheaves tf rich grain, as the mark of her abundance,

R EST FOR THBE PILMETTOS,
Ti CtommitteC on the Military have repoirteil
favorably on a " Bill toexempi members of thme Pal
metto Regiment from Militia and Patrol diuty."
That's exactly right according to our notions. We
have thonght it ought to be done ever since the
brave fellows retutrnmed fruta the wars, and we ntejuice
to see that there is now a prospect of its being carried
into efi'ect. We know mtusbers of men who, foir
passing through the contparatively sinecurne service
of oldngoflceseveni years, are nowv tupon the " free
list, grinning fromi timue to time with the most pro.
oking self-cnmuplarency upon those of its whoue have
still to " toat our shot-guns" in the raniks. Now we
maintain (althmngh it will not help us itndividua~lly
ote speck, for wve are not Mexicans,) that t'oe Pal
mettos, each tine of whom has enduretd mnore and
done more to honor the name of Carolina than any
forty militia Captains or Colonels either, shioultd be
added to this list forthwithh. Common justice, to say
nothing of gratitude, detmandls it at the hands tof manr
Legislature, and we trust this Bill will not be left
among thme unfinished business of the presenat Sessioni.

DESTRUC1IVE FIRE IN KAMURG
On Wednmesd ay night blat about ten o'clock,
our town was disturbed by the cry of ire. The
fire o'iginmted in the I'lanter'< lintel, owned by
James Matheny, and occupied by hitm and W.
C. Bewlee as residetices. It is a tenement house,
and is not known in which department the fire
originatled, but was first seen hurning from Bew'

as to give but little time.to save any'hing, anad
that in nitih dagined condition.
Mr. lat heti-, lost tearly al his stock of goods
and fitrniture,'amouinting to abont $3.500 inde

except $100, on the lotel.

Messrs BritidirY & Rosanmond, whieb was som

vered h insnrance. The house belonged to It.
W. Owings. We were niot able to learn wheth
er it was insured or not.
The last. was a large two story wood build
