C'AP'F. P. 5, BROOKS,

COL. J. F. MARSHAL&
g2' Wz have received from Maj. Jons C. ALLi,
a reply to the charges of S. S. Tomrxit, Esq., as
published in our last number. This article is una
Voidably crowded out, as has been the bulk of our edi
sorial matter. It shall certainly appear next week.
9' WE were instructed last week to omit the-al
lusion to " Howard's 6ox" in the first portion of Mr.
Toxt is'communication. The piece being set up
at the timt, and there being some difficulty in taking
out the words, we thought, upon consultation with a
particular friend of Mr. T., that a correction by a note
would suffice. The article, properly, should not have
contained the words above mentioned. We make this
explanation, as being due to Mr TomxPKis.
Wx publish this week the account of a meeting
of Capt. BaooKs' friends, in which severe imputa
done arp cast upon the friends of Col. PircEis.
We also publish a communication in reference to
Capt. Bitooxs of severe cast.
Our suggestion to all is to write in milder mood.
We dislike that our paper shoaid become the recep
tacle of personalities or of any thing the direct ten
-dency of which may be to lead to such. In political
warfare, ee believe it is the custom of the Press to
publish strch articles without charge until they reach
a rejointder. They are then charged as advertise
ments. Such at least is the course we have adopted.
And, in pursuing this course, we hold ourselves in no
manner responsible for results.
Tit editorial department of the Andrerson Gazette
has again prssed from the hands of Maj. .AXEs HAs
atson. We had just been congratulating ourself
upon the pleasure of exciimgirng a littitr pleasant
raillery with our friend, s the Sprfng came on and
merry thoughts began to rise uppermost. When lo!
he makes another sudderr bow and says " good day"
to the fraternity. Well, " peace to thee and thine,"
ofr chum !-To Mr. Jon V. 3llooRE, who is now
to edit the Ga:ette, we cordially extend the right
hand of fellow-ship and wish for him that best of
editorial gifis, the ability to present an inviting feast
fronr a meagre larder.
We add to our exchange list this week " 7h
Southera Veckly P'ost," a weil conducted Family
Newspaper published in Raleigh N. C., and edited
by C. 11. WILEY and W. D. Coox, at two dollars
That very excellent publication, Dickens' House
Aold Words, continues to reach us punctually.
So does Scott's Weekly Paper.
And the Gcoreia Home Gazette.
And the Olive Branch.
And the Picks and Picaymnes.
And the Dollar Maga:ine.
And a good many others.
But where, tell us where, is old L. A. Goxir gone ?
]Parmer and Planter.
Wx have received the first number of the 4th
volume of this useful agricultural publication,- and
feel gratified to find it in a progressive condition.
Besides the gentlemen who have been hitherto con
cerned in its management, we find the ames of those
well known brethren of the craft, 3Messrs. R. F.
Brxrson and F. BerT. connected wvith the business
as assistant editors. With this combination of energy
and talent we anticipate for the Farmer and Plantr
a successful y'ear, and one that shall be but the fore
runner of a permanent and profitable career--profita
ble alike to publishers, editors and subscribers.
The Hamburg Mieeting.
Ix the proceedings of this meeting, it is alleged
that the effort lhas been made to drive Capt. Bnooxs
- . from the field.~~We,know of no such effort. - No ob
nothing more than a suggestion of the propriety and
expediency of Capt. Baooxs' wlthdrawing in favor
of Col. Picxinss. With that note the parties who
solicited and demanded the nomination of Col.
Pzczess had nothing to do. In respect to the meet
meg. at Lott's and Mt. Willing,, we suppose they were
prompted by a desire to have Col. PucKEcNs' services
as a Representautive in Congress, together with a con
Yietion that such men were rieeded there at this time.
Wnere is the imnpropriety of their ntomination ? We
'imagine every one wvill be at a loss to discover it.
They form a portion of those " three thousand sane
freemen" and had quite as clear a right to express
their preference for Col. PrcxEss, as had another
moiety of these " three thousanid saule freemen" to
express theirs for Capt. Baooixs. No one will main
tain that because they ha-:e thus signified their choice,
It is therefore the choice of the District. Neither will
jt be inferred that because a meeting in Hamburg has
indicatedl a preference for Capt. lBaoOncs, he is
therefore the choice of Edgefield. The latter meeting
doubtless claims to he one of independent 'men. So
do thge others. Where is the harm--where is the wrong
in all this ? It lhas been the accustomed mode of
pro'ceeding in all stmeh political elections, arid will
eontinue to be as long as the freedom of opin
But the resolutiotis go on to assume that there is
"dictation" in this matiter. Is it in thme letter of " ten
citizens !" We see nothing of it. Is it in the pro
ceedings of either of the meetings which nere held
to nominate Col. PiciEzEsI We can find therein
nothing of the kind. Is it in any article which has
appeared in our paper! We are perfectly unconscious
of any such motive, and are willing that our pieces
should be thoroughly dissected and examined., While
urginig, in one or two short articles, the pre eminent
claims of Col. Plexmcrxs, we have studiously avoided
a depreciation of others.
Where then is this " dictation !"
- There is an incongruity between Capt. Bnooxs'I
communication of last week and the Ihamburg meet
ing's Preamble, which is perhaps accidental. For, f
whereas the communication states that a certaitn re
ported conversation between Col. Pmcxeis.s and 1
Capt. Baoozs was heel in March 1852, the Preamble 1
gives for it the date of October in that year.
As to the allusion in the resolutions to, the fact that
Col. PICKINs has been brought omt at " the eleventh
hour," we would merely ask, have not thme people a
right to reserve the decision of titeitr vote until tihe ~
"eleventh hour !" If-sus where is the impropriety of ~
a new candidate being offered to them at that hour? Cr
Of course there is none whatever. '
But we have no more room for conmment or erkicism, d
Of the harshness and ill-feeling displayed by the o
meeting towards the 'various friends and supporters of
Col. PicicRNs, we ca.onmly say that we regret toset
it in gentlemen of such- seinsibility and generosity as h
are those whose names are givcen in connection
with the proceedings. And we-ask tdiems in kindlness,

Wi are right glad to find that the Florida fever,
which flushed the brows of tmany of our good citizens

Ir is really cheering to observe the decided improve- Ie
ment which is.aowf rapidly-takiig placs in our village. tl
Buildings are being renewed which had become rusty
from long neglect and others are being built up on
vacant lote. Among the latter are three intended for
stores or shops, and one for a Family Grocery. All
are to be occupied as soon as completed. A single
one of our citizens, AvoaR BLAND Esq., expects to
have five new store-rooms, and several offices ready o
for occupation within a year.-Our jail is nearly b
done and will present a fine appearance. Our new
Male Academy is about done. Our Odd Fellows

we snppose will be soort on hand. Several smaller
buildings have been put up of brick and mortar.- C
Others are contemplated-and, upon the whole, the r
indications of improvement are clieringly manifest.
The Nowberry Sentinel. b
The Editor of this paper is utterly wrong in sup
posing that certain commendatory remarks, in a late
paragraph of ours about the Greenville and Columbia b
Rail Road, were designed merely as the disguise of a p
sneer. We have ever, in private and in public, spoken a
in laudatory terms of the energy and spirit with which a
this difficult work was begun and has, until recently, fi
been carried on. When others predicted years ago u
that this idea was nonsensical and would fall stillborn,
we repeatedly maintained the reverse. This we did,
Lecause we knew (perhaps as well as the Sentinel)
what description of men originated the work and for
a long time stood manfully by it. That we have,
within the last six months, lost much of our confi. ti
dence, upon the question of its proving either a very it
great or a very profitable work, we do not deny. Su a
have many others even of its former supporters, if we 1
onderstand the Sentinel of the 26th ult. But we still e
wish it success, if it were only to exhibit to the people d
on this side of the Saluda what they have lost by
their apathetic indifference. And we repeat that this
success is merited, if it be never realised. At the
same time, we have a perfect right both to feel and P
express surprise at a piece of intelligence like that
contained in the Anderson Ga:cic in reference to -the I
deprecation of this stock, and the Sentinel has a per. t
feet right to explain, if it thinks proper, what caute' r
have produced this sad deprecation. Such would -
have been a more effective reply to our so-called |

EDGEwoGD, Jan. 30, 1S53. Y
Ma. EITOR: Dear Sir: On my return home lIst
evening 1, for the first time, saw a communicition in
the Advertiser of the 26th inst., from Capt. PartESTON
S. Baoouis-in which lie publishes a conversation -
he held with me during M4arch-term of Court 1852.
There is nothing mioro uncertain in construction
than hurried street conversations, particularly when
hleard by persons with different views and wishes.
Mv recollection of the conversation is substan
tially as follows: Capt. BRooKs met i te in the
street and said he was sorry to see our naits ap
parentTy in conflict in the last paper, and that if lie
had known I was to be nonmiuntedi he would not
have allowed his name to be inserted-or sonic such
words. I replied that I did not know it myself e
until the paper appeared, for I had refused to allow
several gentlemen, who had applied, to put m
name in, and that I was going to see the Editor
then about it. I said also. I dil not wish to run-it
would not suit mte, or be rleasant-or rather, not at
all desirable personally. Ile then turned off and.
said, well you will be elected Senator'it'any rate.
It was a passing conversation, and this is the sub
stance of all I recollect of it. A t the conclusion of
what Capt. BuooKs publ;shes now of the conversa
tion, he says, " A nd I think, he addled, it (the
nominattion) might have the effect of keeping othiers
This is an entire mistake. I never conceived or
uttered such a sentiment. I never couldi have conu
acute I to surh a nomination with snch a view, andt
wi.a'. shows it to be a misapprehension, is that I went
immediately to the Editor-and at my request thet
nomination was entirely altered in the next paper;t
by inserting expressly that if had been maddwithodtj
As my conversation htas been published I think it
not improper to publish the following letter froim
Capt. Bitoozs to me, as it gives precisely the proper 1
ecmnstruction and inference from the 'above eenver
Sation, simnply as I really meant what I said then andil
no niore. I attached no importance to it, and never a
thought of it again until lately. . ~ ~

FOIL THE ADVERTISER.
AT a large and respectable meeting of the friends
Capt. P. S. BRooKs, held in the Town of Ham
:rg on Saturday the 29th inst., for the purpose of
insidering his claims to the suffrages of the peo
e of the Fourth Congressional District, on mo
in his Honor, the Intendant, WN. SrnRsS, was
Lled to the Chair, and T. SErrimus liERioT Req.,
quested to set as Secretary.
The meeting being organized, C. W. STYLES, Esq.,
iefly stated the object for which they had assem
ed, and submitted a motion that the Chair appoint
Committee of three, for the purpose of reporting
as'ness for tie occasion, whereupon the Chair ap
,inted C. W. STYLES and T. P. MlAGRATHK, Esqrs.,
Ad Dr. J. W. SToxas. The Committee retired,
id in a few minutes returned and reported tho

WnEREAs, Col. F. W. Picraxs and Capt. P. S.
nOK5 both citizens of Edgefield District, are can
dates for the House of Representatives in the
ederal Congress. And whereas the former at the
me of his nomination in the Edgefield Advertiscer,
October last, intimated to many gentlemen, and
rmong them, to Capt. Bxooxs himself, that the an
onneement was maio without his knowledge or
Dnsent, and that he would in no event be a candi
ate. And afterwards virtually confirming this
itimation, by sufiering his name to go before the
,egislature at its recent session, among the names
roposed for the Senatorship, in the Senate of the
;nited States. And again, after his defeat in that
'leetion, by formally withdrawing his name from
lie Columns of the Advertiser, where it had been
etained for months, only for the purpose-it seems
-that the - Printer might get his fee." The
oters of the fourth Congressional District were led
y tie conclusion-as of course-that Capt. Bnoons
,as the Edgefield Candidate, and that he would
ave no opponent at home. But Col. PIcXENs,
eing solicited by a number of zealous friends,
'iclded to their entreaties, and alloteed his name
gain to go before the people: Titus opposing
,apt. BROOKS, a fellow-citizen of his own District,
the eleventh hour, after having given hiim to un
erstand that he would not oppose him. And with
perfect knowledge that Capt. BnooKs had been an
vowed candidate for eight or ten months, and that
c h.id canvassed the Congressional District for
car that length of time.
And wnEREAs an eflort has recently been made
y the friends of Col. PICKENs, to induce Capt.
Rooxs to withdraw fron tle cantest iin his favor,
nid for the aceomplishment of that obje.t, they have
dopted means which we deem caleulated to preju.

eld village and vicinity, proftssing fiiendship for
te Captain (and we doubt not their sincerity, or tle
onesty of their purpose,) requesting him to with.
raw fron the canvass and in favor of Col. PicK
Ni, urging as their reasons, that if both lie and
k1. P'rcmasecotntinued in the field, it might be the
icans otf depriving Edgefieldi of the Representa
ye; and furthter, that by withtdrawing hte, Capt.
ImlooKs, would " strengthmen himnself with thle frienzds
f Cul. PicKE~s, and exhibit a ntagtnatimlous and
is-nterested patriotism," that would insure hmis
trecess at sonme future period. Therefore, consid
ring that Capt. Unaoons' claims are, at least equal
.t the claims of Col. PtcKEss, ujpon the voters of

Ma. EnTo,--I elaim the acknowledged privi
lege of an humble voter, to make a few remarks
upon the very peculiar correspondence, published in
the last Adrertiser, at the request of Capt. Baooxs.
Public men are public property in this country, and
every citizen has the right, not c.nly to criticise and
examine the principles, qualifications and conduct
of his Representative, but he has also the right uf
discussing the relative merits or demerits of Candi
dates, as well as the means they employ to secure
their own election, or defeat that of their opponents.
Indeed, both the private and publio character of a
Representative or Candidate belong to the people,
and as one of that body, I presume to comment
upon the singular correspondence refered to above.
If Capt. Baooas.had thought well upon what he
was doing, or if he had conferred with his niost ju
dicious friends, he would, I am sure, have hesitated
long, very long, before giving publicity to that cor
respondence. By so-doing he has not only griev
ously injured hims'elf, but greatly benefitted the
man, whom he has wantonly sought to wrong, and
whose election it is his darling purpose now to de
feat. But he speeds his arrows at game too high
for a feeble hand rendired more weak and nervous
by conscious inabilitj, and the shaft which he ment
to carry political death to Col. Pactaxs, will re
bound as harmless from the bright' integrity of that
gentleman, as did the frail javelin hurled by Priam
against the impenetrable shield of Pyrrhus. Capt.
Baoors, instead of erecting a pillory for Col. PicK
zxs as lie intended, has in reality built one for
It may well be left to.the criticism of public opin
ion, to say whether or not Capt. Baooxs has been
guilty of a gross violation 'of good manners, in pub
lishing a correspondence, meant to be solely private.
The same august trilunal will have to decide wheth
er lie has not violated another wholesome regulation
of society in retailing to the world private, enasual or
unguarded conversations, alleged to have been held
with Col. 1'cxEs and his near relative, the Editor
of the Edgefield A4teriser. But unfortunately
for Capt. BRooKs, this alleged converition with Col.
Picxzns may never have occurred, simply breause
it is an imnposibility. He speaks positisely that
"during term-time of the Court, in March 1852,"
himself and Col. Picias were nominated in the
same paper for Congress. That " on the day after
the paper was issued," he approached Col. Picais
and expressed his regret that their names should
appear siniultancously and "in seeming conflict for
the saent position." To which he says, Col. P.
rephed that " he did not wish to run-that he had
refused to run-that he had no idea of running
that his friends irefre urging his claims to a Seat
in the United Statio Senate." To wchat Seat in
the Senate. could Col. Piexrss have referred in
this conversation I There was then no vawancy in
that body from South Carolina, and none expected.
Mr. Rurr never resigned until after the Conven
tion refused to secede, and that was the cause of
his resignation, which bears date 30th April, nearly
two months after this conversation is alleged to
have taken place. It is almost. common law in
South Carolina for a United States Senator to be
re-elected as often as he may desire, and it is pre
pusterous to say that Col. Picmrss ever thought of
opposing Mr. Rurcvr, who was not only the incum
bent, but was also a -brother Secessionist. Col.
Pmcxess' name was never mentioned, either pub
l'ely or privately, in connect ion with any candidacy
for the Seinte, until after Mr. RnEu'r'r resIgned, anid
I udefy any mian to prove the contrary. Capit. Baooxs
may have desired that 'Col. Plcaans should oppose
Mr. Thnr'r'r, but no one else ever thought of it seri
ously. So nmuch for the covert ebargo against Col.
PicKEss that he at .irst advised Mr. Baooas to
maintain the field from which he now widies to
drive Imn. Whether tis mis-stateinent, to use a
euphemrismr, was delib.erately made by Capt. Baooxs,
it remrains for an intd~iy w
.cmsuvanig ge'nerl3%fails, simply because he
omnits some -precatution--which should have been
- taken. Capt. Urooxs omitted to examine dates,
and hence the aniacrniism which mars the beauty
of his story.
Hie has by his com,,mmniention not only wronged
Col. PlcKess, but alsokhie gentlemen to whom his
letter is addresscd, as: well as the whole people of
the 4th Congressional District. Upmon~what ground
does lie assume to hoW the following insulting Ian
guage of the people whom lhe Reeks to represent.
" The opposition to mec is -'chiefly political. It was
amy hope that past political dliffierences would not be
regarded in this election. In that hopie I have been
disappointeel," &e., &.c. Have aniy pubmlie meetings
been held, or letters written, or rumors spread, to
preach a Secession crusade against Capt. B3aooxa
No, he cannut locate, or put his hand on orie-he
had no cause or excuse for penning the above quo
tation. except to mrake a *..w appeal to the pirejudices
of ultra Co-operationists. lie muay disclaim any such
intention, but he will find it ditlicult to give any
other e.xlplanation of his wordls. Te'n of asi resputa
ble mna as threre, are in Edigefield District thought
proper t( address him a note, requesting him to
withdraw in oar of Col. PICKNSs. All of these
gentslerneon wer e his private friendsnand eight of themr
his politicl synmpathisers in the late meainorable
struggle. Ye't Capt. Baooxs cries persecutio~n, per
secution, himself both the voice and ehmo of it, for
no one else ever utteredl it, or heard it, till he spokce
it. Does it signify persecution because eight co
operationists refuse to vote for Captain Baooxs and
prefer to support Col. Pincxc~ss, who though lie was
a Secessionist is as they believe, aStatesmuan of pro
fo.und ability, ripe experience anid national reputation!l
No Mr. Editor, this is niot thre piersecutioni which lie
really feels in his heart. Ice knrows that a free pet'
pIe are always divided upon questioins of both p~rin
eiple and policy. Yeat I venture to say, tha.t lie re
memibers with delight the fact that this Congre~
sionral District was lately 'onivulsed with excitemrent,
abiout separate State action, lie also remembers
with still more oxquisite pleaisure, that there are
four candidates in the field to represent us ini Con
gress--three Seeessionists and only on'e Co-opera
tionist, who is fortunately he thinks himiself. But
this pleasure Ihas sonme alloy as every sweet muust
have its pain. Capt. Baoorcs is well advised from
Distory and froni Mr. CA~noea's inestitrable Book
ar Government, that 'the peculiar straetare of our
State Constitution pgevents the cortinued existence
af parties in South Carolina after the excitenmert is
aver which gives them birth. It is the knowvledgeI
af these facts which haunts Capt. Baons and makes
urn shout Chost Ghost I when there is no Ghost.
t is this knowledge which causes him to d'g at the
uried remiains of Secess:on and Co-operation, withr
he hope of breathing life afresh into their putrid I
arcasses. Who does not see through the flimsyt
lisguise i d who will not mark the man that thus "
lures to throw fuel on the fires of party strife or I:
o- fan its flames, that he ninay have borrowed light '
o reach that position and rank, whieh his po!itical hk
agaity arid just deserts e'ould never attain in thle
almr arid unelouded jurdgrment of thre people ? Ex- 0
opt with a few ultra partisans of either side, the 0
nestion of Secession anid Cu-operation is matter of 1
history as the late elections for the Legislature and 0l
)istict offices show. But even If the parties were
:il4 iihve arid welil organised, what claims Capt. nm
coors can have upon the Co-operationa party I fu
n at a loss to perceive, ie was, or aspired to be oi
render of that party, and yet lie deser'ted it in the fu
mar of its utmost need, because, as he informs uis, w
a " self-respect" forbade Iris being in a " minority;" sI
r the fear of the latter, was thne cause of his with- A
~awal as he afterwards eonfessed1 in his significanmt nr
arifes'te to the Co-opeation voters of thne 4fth de
snogremennal Dlistrct 'Thus. Tie led .t .. hi e
danger was distant, but as soon as it drew near, he
retired to the rear like ISoTEIN when sont with ye
his posse, to arrest GABOR. th
" March vnsals ! I'm your leader-and will bringW
The rear tip; a wise general never should b g
Expose his precious life-on whhkh all rests.
I like that article of war."
The Capta'n s-ays with th..t b-com'ng modesty
so natural to himt, " Let the friends that I have beC
but vigilant and I an confnldent of my e!eetion, even
though Col.'PicxKExs is in the field." Thus it seemes 1
he.is " confdet%'V of his election over even such men ja,
as Messrs. MARSHAL and SurLvs, as well as Col. CC
PlcKiss. What are his superior e!aimse to aseat in m1V
Congress, that Capt. Biaooxa siIhould urge them with
such indecent vehemence and with such overwean
ing confidence ? will not a voter rather ask whether
Capt. Baoos is fit to be a candidate at all, or not, D
instead of whether lie has been a laborious election- T
eerer, " nne months," or even twelve? Mr. Baoois I()
certainly performed no feats of incredible valor iu SO
Miexico. 1lis Legislative labors are noit known to (
fume except the unofficial act of his having been a
member of the committee to invite M1r. IlOAR, the
crazy Abolitionist to leave Charleston. Ilia profes- A
sional success at the Bar has asiuredlly not been of a
character to warrant this conimunity in supposing a
that their Contitutional rights, would be safe in o
his keeping. All of these claims then, Military, I
Legislative and Professional, even when combined C
with a white and spotless moral charecter, are in- a
sufficient to induce this people to vote for, ir. E
Baooxs instead (if Col. IPrcx srns, who has more poP- rc
ularity and influence out of Sonth Carolina than a
any Statesman within her borders. Both of our k

feated Col. PicxEss for Governor and the United
States Senate, his old Congressional Di-triet, the 8
country around " Ninety Six," the home of his father a
and the scene of his grand father's exploits, still has I.
unbounded confidence in his ability and integrity- 1
its inhabitants call upon him agnin it serve them. u
Ile responds to that cll, but not by eteeoneering
or treating, or travelhig with Circuses. Ile preers
to say of a seat in Congress what the immortal
Lowsurs said of the Presidency. It is in "office C
neither to be solicited nor de Clined." Ile is willing a
to do battle for the South during the diniiistratti.n v
of Gen. PIEacr, with whom lie is known to be a
favorite and an influential friend. But he is not a
willing to go to Washington at the request. or by 9
the suffrage of any nman, whose vote can be bought e
with an insincere shake of the hand, or a drink of
adulterated run, and such in my opinion are the sea
timents of a majority of voters in the District of
Ninety Six. Capt. BRooKs is I fear, over " confi
dent" of having the heels, botton and track of his f
competitors, who though they mtay have been out of it
sight and out of hearing in the race, will bear down
upon him now with fearful rapidity since lie has
crippled himself with his own letter, which thrusts
daggers into his popular:ty that I forbear in nerey
to pusi deeper. It is truly unfortunate that his letter
was ever written or published, for many reaFons not
given here. Ile seenis afilieted with an unhappy 1
propensity to write hiiself down and I suggest as
a text for his thoughts the next time he writes for
the papers, a couplet which I learned when a boy:
" A mbition oft its fiondest hopes will kill
By heedless scratching with a gray goose quill." c
Its motrali would beoof service to him,, and is kindly
comenaded to his most scrious considerntioni by

CllAltilTON, Jan. 22. 1853.
T see, Mr. EarroR, fromi a late nuiibcr of your
paper, that you haeve been amusing yourself, and
perhitps seeking the beneficial results of a little re
laxation from the arduous duties of the sanctum, by -
a flying visit to the beatutiful aiid thriving. .cy of
V tfEiineTi*rrrimrsi a , ..n , y a
'fortuxitousc train or circumstances, had my lot east at
"ne of the crack IHotels of that city of trees and
"ingnificent distances," about the same time.
Thlere.was however this diffe.reec-you steepped at
the United States, (a most excellenct house by the
bye,) andl Inat thle Auguta, about whlicht there is a
tracelling report thcat it is the best house in the
city, anid I lhave no doubt that Nuei is the fact.
There is onee faeet hoewever that will adm~cit of neo
catvil, and that is that Augusta is not short oef a
goodly numbiier of most excellenit Ilotels, and the
weary traveller whio stops there may feel perfectiv
easy otithe score o~f good bed and becird.
Thte first thing theatstrikes a 'trang'r in visiting'
Augusta for the first time, is thce greait waste of ine
garens anid buiildhing leots, ine the unusuetal width of
Broai and Greeni streets. The fenet is, they acre too
wide ihr any tuse, giving the h'euses ten either side a
atunitedl and dwarfish appearance. If' the geood peo
ple of Cha~rlestoni could transfer some of the surplus
width of theose streets toe their great comnmercial
mart, and f'avoerite proeniade, IKing street, it igiht
result in a greact adl vantage to each. The next thcing
that struck mnc as peculiatr, was the unusucal numicber
of Drug Stoeres f'r nt city of its size. One mcightc be
led bcy theis, to foirme n uenfavrnbitle ospincioni of the
health of the place, btut ats fair as I cotuld lcea,it has
beeni unif'ormliy gonel. The~y miust lay in an addi
tionial sto~ck for their I Iacmeburg neighebcra. With
all her fatuls, (and she has probably ats few as comi
mnily faell to the let eel Cities,) I nmust say theat Au
guesta, bectih as it regards leer lenationc anid arrange
entt, is onie o~f the heandmm~nest and nicst pleasat
places of its size I leave ever~ ceen. Anmd ini tihe
sprineg aned summtner, when the trees acnd gaerdens are

'cut the drawbeack of feorbiden fruit, or a nmoderne
