Hamburg Resolutions Again.
WEcan but declare ourself much pleased with the
explanation made by the Chairman-of the llamburg
meeting, in reference to certain expressions of the
Hamburg Resolutions which seemed to be fraught
with harshness and ill-feeling towards the friends of
Col. I'tuCKENs. It will be seen that everything of the
kind is disclaimed. This is right-it is generous.
For ourself. we regret every thing lke sharpness or
severity which has been engendered by this election
There is no necessity for any thing. of the sort and
there is no benefit likely to accrue, from the indul'
gence of such feelings, to any one. We have advised
against it, and still do so.
WEare told that the Hotels now kept in Columbia
by Messrs. JAxxEY, & Co., and by Mrs. FLEMING,
are very superior. The former occupy the old stand
of EDGAa, more recently -MArts's. Mrs. FLFtNG
has.*rcceeded Mr. JAx.Cav in the American. Every
one going to Columbia should test the qualities of
these excellent estabplishments. The bare names of
their proprietors are enough to guarantee to every
-visitor the most respectable and satisfactory treat
ment. Refer to their advertisements in this number
of the Advertiscr, and read them carefully.
A negro lad, some nine or ten years old, belonging
to Col. SItuEos CHitsTIE of this vicinity, was ill
stantly killed'on Monday last by the running gear of
a Gin. lIe haid climbed upon the cog-wheel, and in
attempting to get dowin was caught lty the evolition
of the trundle head. His head was awfully crushed.
This should be a warning for all farmers as to the
importance of exercising: the utmost. precaution in
keeping away fron Gin Houses (when work is going
on) all chaps except such as are absolutely needed
The Wishington. correspondent of the Charleston
Standarrd says it is generally supposed at the seat of
government that our distinguished Senator has been
ofTered an appointment in the Cabinet.. The thing is
said.to be satisfactory to every wing of every party.
The writer thinks the Judge will not accept. Forour
own part, we did not see the wisdom or policy of Mr.
JIUNTEa's reftisal of a Secretaryship ; nor can we
Row see any impropriety in Senator BUTLER's refus
ing to take office. Our obojection to lits doingsowold
be based principally upon the loss our State would
sustain by being deprived of his eminent services.
An Acknowledgement and a Complaint..
WE are indebt d to lion. D. WALLACE for a pam
phlet copy (of Mr. WOODWARD's Speech upon the
Tariff, upon which speech we commented briefly in a
late ntmber of our pap::r. With this and one or two
other exceptions, we have received nothing from
either our Senators or Representatives in Congress
during the present Session. We hope their amanuen
ses have not blotted out our name fronm thte lists of
thteir South Carolitta constituency. We can assure
them we are still here and knocking along about the
samen as ever. Knowing that this thing of sending
home Pubilic Documents, Speechtes, &c., isleft entire
ly to lired clerks. we hereby enter outr complaint
against tems for neglect of dutty in our case.-.and
hope that some of our members wvill have the good
ness so to correct thteir employees, that we may htave
the beatitude of appreciating the frantking privilege
at least once a montht. Otherwise, we may be re
duced to the necessity of applying to some benevo

A Call Upon Our Warmers.
Oca planting season is near at utand. 'Te agricul
tural portion of our comniuttity are becoming more
and more busy, more and more pushin~g as the open

and in late, and proprietors are surveying the pro
gress of preparatiotn upon their farms or plantations
with interest and anmation. The "gee, hawv" and
"get up, dar" of active laborers are beginning to
resound through every valley from early morn to
evening's close. The winter's severity is almost
passed, and, in a fe w wveekls, httdditig vegetation will
begin to enlivent the face of nature. And nowv for
the call we have to make tupont otur farmers.
It is, that tey wvill emblrace the opportunity be

anothter, throutgh thme columnts of otur paper, their
opinionts and preferences (and the reasons therefor) in
regard to the various modes of planiting and cutltiva
ting corn and cottont, peas, potatoes and vegetables of
all kind.-the kind and quiant iy of manure used for
differentt produtciions, thme ntanner arnd time of apply
ing it &c., &c. Our columns are open to all for this
purpose. We hope there are farnmers who will accede
to otur propositiotn. It tmight restult int advanitage to
many, while it woutld cost no one mutch trouble or
labor. We wotuld be glad to keep the " Farmter's
Department," of our paper regttlarly filled with
original communications, from our own intelligent
fellow-citizens, bearitig directly ttpon thme matter-of
f.tct experience of our owvn district. Let each one
take that branchi of agriculture in which lhe is most
successful and give to the public, concisely and
plainly, the method of his success. We promise to
revise and print all such comuntications accurately.

For the Advertiscr.
To the Editor of the Adveriiser,
DEAR SIR: The construction placed by some on
the proceedings, published in your last issue, of a
meeting held in this place on the 27th ult., has ren
dered a= explanation. some!what necessary. From
those procedinigs it is .upposed there were " harsh
ness a-id ill feeling' entertain..d towards the variot.s
supporters and friends of Col. PIcKENs. But I as
sure you that " no harshness or ill-reeling" was mani
ifisted or entertained on the occasion, and I am quite
sure that the gentlemen of the Committee by whom
the preamble and resolutions were reported, were
actuated by very different feelings. and higher mo
tives. And as Chairman of that Committee, I can
say with the utmost sincerity, that we had no per
sonal f-cling to gratify, no disposition to charge an
intentional elTort to weaken Capt. Bnooxs'clianevs
(of election. We are personally friendly towards
those gentlemen whose names we know to be asso
ciated with the friends of Col. PicKENs, and we
know tlhem to be gentlemen of undoubted integrity,
and tihe utmost sense of honor. Our object was sim
ply to declare our approval of the course adopted by
Capt. Baoocs. We desired in some degree to
counteract the effect which might have resulted
from the recent and unexpected demonstrations in
behalf of Col. PrcKENs, and the peculiar circumstan
ces of his present position. We apprehended as the
result of these demonstrations, that the friends of
Capt. Broons in the coterminous Districts woul.]
infer that lie was unsupported by his own District,
and, as a natural consequence, would desert him
because of this misapprehension.
CIRMIII-AN OF TIlE COMMITTEE.
IIAUSURG, Feb. 7, 1853.
FOR THE ADvFRTISER.
AT a meeting of the citizens of Liberty Bll and the
surrounding country, on the 4th inst., to consider
the propriety of nominating a candidate for Con
gress, on motion of Maj. TusEnIAN, Capt. En
sIONI IELCIi R was enlh-d to the Chair, and S. F.
STrP'ENs aplpinimted Secretary. The Chair request
ed that S. F. S-rEPr.ns explain the object of the
meeting, which being briefly done, on motion, a
Committee of three were appointed to prepare busi
ness for consideration. The Chair appointed the
followimg gentlemen, viz: S. F. STErnF.Ns, J. 1.
TaLBCIr.T and G. J. SmrrArnD, who, after some
deliberation, reiorted the following Preamble and
Resu'utions, wlich were unan:nously adopted.
WiEREA.s, A dvision of sentiment prevails in
our District, as to the respective elainms of Col.
PiccxENs, and Capt. BnooKs, to the support of the
peoplo of. Edgefield, and
WuREAS, Capt. Bneoxs has through our D*s
trict Press, intimated a desire to heam from the
voters of his. native- District, magnanimously resolv
ing to-abide their decision, and
WAERE As, Col. PICKE4s, though modestly re
fusing to run, has finally yielded to the wishes of
ninny friends, ta-serve (as an inenmbent duty) if
elected, though the place is not of his own seeking,
or desired as an aspirer, having filled it at a former
day with honor to himself, and to the satisfaction
and apprbbaton of his constituents.
1. Be it thcrefore Resofred. That in the opinion
of this meeting a want of unanimity in our District
at this time, a0out the pritate initer sts or the indi
vi lual claimas a f two menris to be deprecated, and
would not only be subversive of the public interest,
but the injustice to ourselves would be extended to
our neighboring Districts.
2. Resolred. That at this juncture of our politi
cal affimira, we shotuld divest ourselves of prejudice,
and with sober, second thought for the comamon
weal unite upon that tanm whomn we consader best
able to subserve the interests of the wh-ole Con
gressional D istrict.
3. Resolved, That int our opinion, Col. Pcrcxss'
reputation as a Statesman, his expe-rienmce in polities,
lisk intimate relations with the distinguishied and
leading politic'ans of the dlay, (to say nothing in
vidiously of his distiniguishied ability,) eminently
to the interest of our own District, our Congres
sional District, to the State -at large, ais well as to
the gratification of thme whole south, we n-'w nomi
nate and wit! sus'ain him.
4. Resolred, That whilst we look to the interest
of our country first, we entertain feelings of the.
highest condidenation for our friend and fellow-citi
zen, Capt. P. S. Bnaooxs.
On muotion of Mr. PF.nnrx, of A bbeville, it was
ordered that the procedings be published in the

Mr. Uhtooixs has not only wronged and iisulted
the people of the whole Congressional District by
a'temptitng to revive past issues and turn each
brother's knife against hmis neighbor's throat, but hue
has been peculiarly offensive and doubly insulting
to the voters of Newberry and Lexington. lHe
artfully makes a charge against himself, for the pur
pose of arousing the prejudices of thme two emal
Districts above named, ,vhich arc beyond a doubt
somewhat overshadotwed, by Edgefielad, Abbeville
and La-urens, especially the former. HeI says " I
am imupliedly charged with forwardness, and of
causing this District (Edgefield) to hazard the loss of
the Kepresentative to wohich she is entitled by the
extent of her territory and large popualation."
Impliedly charged by whom ? By no one. but
expressly charged by himself, to curry favor in the
small Districts, and particularly in Newberry,
which he ventures so grossly to flatter.
What does he mean by pireserving " the in
tegrity of the vote of the Distriet" or "of parali:
ing the District by a division of its vote," or by'
other equivocal expressions, except that lhe wishes
to create the impression in Newberry and Lexing

if there be any such party, which Captain UROOns
knows is not thme ease, who clain, the Rlepresenutative
for Edgefield not on account of the merits of their
candidate, but fromi " the extent of territory and
large population of our District."
Mr. Baooxs'mnotive will doubtless be seen ,through
the clod of ignorance and vanity which lhe seemis
tro think envepes Newberry and Lexington, as well
as Edgefield. It is a pity that he shows his hand
so plainly, since by so doing lhe must lose the game.

For the \dvertiser.
THE CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION!
Mr. Eurro: We regret to see that Edgefield is
about to become distracted with the personal diffi
eulties of Col. PicKEys and BnooKs. The voters of
Edgefield and this Congressional District should have
nothing to do with the personal difficulties of any (if
the candidates; when political differences arise, then
we think it proper and just for the people to deter
mine which of the two candidates are right. In the
present case we think they are both wrong to thrust
their personalities before the people in the approach
ing election. Let them settle their difficulties else
where; we are satisfied beyond a doubt that neither
of them stands any chanoe to be elected, and we
have a proposition to make to the friends of both
gentlemen, coming front a PICKENS and BRooKs
nman. Let us ltave the gentlemen and their imie
diate friends to settle their d:ffileulties clsewhore, and
vote for one of the other candidates or a sompromise
man. This man we propose is Col. J. FomsTit MAAR
SnALL of Abbeville. The people of Abbeville have
tried him upon the battle field and so well were they
pleased with his services in Mexico, that they elect
ed him to the highest post within their gift. This
was Senator. He served them four years in the
Senate, and as an act of their approbation, they re
elected him to the same post without opposition.
This of itself, coming from such intelligent and high
minded people as Abbeville District can boast of, is
a sufficient guarantee for the people of Edgefield to
vote for one of her favorite sons. Another reason
why the people of Edgefield ought to vote for Col.
MARSHALL is, that on every occasion whilst in the
Senate, lie has voted for all of our Edgefield candi
(lutes and for all measures appertaining to our pros
perity: for instance the Savannah River Rail Road,
and the Hamburg Plank Road. le is a man pos
sessing a high degree of moral courage, a well culti
vat.ed mind, a fine debater, and a man entirely de
voted to the interest of his State. Such a man we
can well entrust with our interest and institutions.
Let us, one and all, give him a hearty support.

Correspondence of the Advertiser.
CIIARLESTON, February 5, 1853.
This is, or rather has been, race week, as perhaps
you are already advised in this day of Rail Roads
and newspapers; for news one day old, is now con
sidered stale; and the time is fait approaching,
spoken of by the wise man, when there shall be
"nothing new under the sun." I understand that
tlie sports of the turf have been tich, racy and ex
citing, with any number of vis'tors, speculators and
sharpers, from far and near. Some belonging to each
of the above-named classes ars now wearing full
pockets and smiling faces, while a proportionate num
ber (if the unfortunates have been caught napping,
and only awoke in time to clap their hands upon their
empty pockets, finding the nest warm, but the bird
had flown. The latter class may be recognised at
any distance by their blank looks and care worn as
pect, with a general lankness all over.
OLE BULL, the great Norwegian Fidiller, halted
here a few days on his hurried liassage South, and
gave two concerts at Mil*tary I1all, from which lie
pocketed over S.',000, to enrich, and provide for,
his recently planted co!ony in Western Pennsylva
nia. MAURICE STRAKoscu and his amiable lady, the
late AMLra PATTI, and her little sister" ADA" about
eight years old, played an important part, and adlded
much to thme interest of the occasion. OLE BULL
ranks high, not only as a violinist, but also as a pi
laatlhropst; and who kniows but that he may yet
rival Wu.Ls PENN, and build a second c'ty of
" Brotherly Love ?" Success to him, his cause and
his fiddle, and may he weave his gat-land, not of the
lightning's wing, buit of gossamer threads of goil'l!
I mt a man this morning in Broad street who
seemed to be attracting considerable notice, as he
passed rapiidly along, bendinig under the weight of a
b-ig, which was suspended from his arm by a long
strinmg, and danmgling almost to the ground, was
probably filled, not with the musty records of the
Star Chamber, but with bills, blanks, briefs, &c., all
tied in separalte bundles with red tape strings.
What strnek mec most forcibly was, the bag's being
newo; we ar-e all not unfamiliar with an old green
hag. somiewhat faded, and sundry small holes in it;
but this was a new and improved pattern, but rather
a bad imitation of the old1 one. It shiotild have been
labeled thtus--" Little boats should keep near shore."
Upper-ten-dom has beent thrown quite itito the
shade, aind our citizens taken entirely ab~ack, atid
made to stare most wonderfully, by the sudden ap
pearance, on King street, of a most splendid aind
e->stly equipage, in the shape of a niagnificent Lan
dau, drawn by a span of dashing grays. Where
the thing caime fronm, and whose money bought it,
and who are the fortunate owners, have puzzled the
most prying and inquisitive. Some are ready to
believe it an optical illusion-a spectre from the
spirit w-orld, sent to mock the pride and ponmp of the
inhabitaiits of this puny planet--but there it is, every
afternoon, between the hours of four anid five, dash
ing along the most crowded part of 1King street, in
the broad glare of ilay, and distinctly visible to the
naked eye. " Thereby may hang a tale," and if it
is ever " unfolded" to the public satisfaction, I shall
not be slow to informt yotn.
The weather has changed from tho cold, chilly
blasts of an almiost Northern winter, to the mtild
balmy temperature of spring. Yesterday the ther
mometer stood at 60* above zero, and to-day the
breezes are as soft as those that waft the young rose
into being, and open the tender jonquil to the genial
embraces of an April sun. We have had tno rain
for three weeks, and the streets are dry and dusty
-the sky is perfectly clear, and of that "clear cer
ulean" that itidientes fmiir wveathetr for some time to
conic. Well, we will not complain of the present
dry, warm weather, although a little unseasonable,
for December gave us enough of cold, wet, disa
greeable weather to do us all the wvinter.
The annual Jockey Club Ball came ofi' with un
usual pomip and parade, oii Friday the 4Ith inst., and
quite a turn out oif the sporting clique, their wives,
daughters and sweethtearts, assembled at St. An
drew's Ihall, whe-n followed dancing and feas.ting,
cbatting, coquetting and flirting, with any niumber
of epilogues, interludes aind afterpieces, just to fill
up, and keep the spirits from flagging until the con
clusion of the fifth act, whih I fear caite rathier too
late for some of them. The gallmt steeds throtugh
the day, performed their duties upon the turf most
no~bly, and kept the track like animuals who under
stood their duty; but some oif the biped coursers
Golted duriing the evening, and others wecre distanced,
althouigh the wvimier wore his laurels well. May

For T HF ADVERTISER.
H a. EDITOR :-In tleAdvertiser of the 0.6th in
stant, I noticed a very uncourteous and unkind
charge made upon me by S. S. Touirvrxs, Esq.
I seems to be writtefi, as a reply to a communi
catim, that I made :o the ditizens of this District,
through the Adreriiserof the 19th inst. lie hta
thoight proper to deal in assumptions foul and tin
gen!rous. le sets out by stating that I was lis
posed to charge the Managers of Elections at Din
ton'-I, iloward's and Graniteville with having wilful
ly mis-stated, in naking their re turns. Nothing could
be lurther from my thoughts, or design ; on the
contrary, I entertained no doubt, but that the elee
tion was held, and conducted honestly and fairly.
and that the usual for ms had been observed so far as
to secure the rights of all; nor do I believe that my
communication can he' made to convey any such
meaning. I intended to state the facts, as regards
the result of the election, and no more. In all pre
ceding elections such ifotices had been made, and I
saw no reason why it should be deviated from in the
present ease. I think was at least lue to the pub
lie, and I do not sup*e the truth will offend any
one unless it argues gply for the Esquire. lie
further says, the objt of my communication is to
get up the belief, thar1 am a persecuted man, and
that there was no groturd for the protest, and so on
.1 am free to state, thn't I do not supposc that there
was ever an election held in as large a District as
ours, but that there might have been some exception
taken on account of some slight error. I supposed
he had taken exceptiors to some uniniportiant opin
ion that perhaps had Trequently been made before,
without design. Ile adds that whe'n I wrote my
communication, I knew that the boxes at Dunton's
and I loward's were not opened but one day. I am
at a lss, even at this time, upon that subject, for I
see by a marginal mark of his, that he says " when
he entered his protestjhe was in error in supposing
that thle box at Howard's was open only one day."
I know that he stated in his protest, that " the Mana
gers cf Elections at Towles', at Dunton'v, at Nai;'s.
at Io-ward's, and at Ivers other places, did not on
the 3rd and 4th drys of January, meet, open and
hold the polls, and hold the said Election as required
Now I must statebitjt the range which lie ha
taken, or allowed himself, is so wide that it would
be difficult to know what he did mean ; whether
they held the polls nue day according to law, or
that they did not hold it in confornity with the law
le says, I " knew that the box at Graniteville was
not opened at 9 o'elock A. M., and kept open t'Of
4 o'clock P. M., as required by law."' I was not
informed as to what hour -the pills was opened, Or
at what hour it was closed, for lie did not state in
Ile says, in efe.-, that I have rris -stated when I
said that I took it for granted tl-.at tie polls licld,
returned, and certified to by the 31anagers were
fairly conducted. I think I itay say' that I will
stand justified in miaking that assertion, for I do
know that the Chairman of the Board of Managers,
.refused to receive a 'return rade of . box, because
the b( er of it was not a Manager, and therefore
could not certify to its correctnes, consequently it
was reasnrable to sup a, that all which were re
ceived were according t law.
As regards his statement about the inqiiry being
imiade by General JoNEs, whether I Vas Post-Master
at Fruit 11ill at the time of my election, I hive in
reply to say, that I understood General Joxr.s to ask
mec whether I was Post-Mlast er at the time or my
election, and if I was exercising the duties or rost
Mlaster, which according to rmy under-standing at the
time of<.ur co~nversuation wars, whether I was exer
cising th e functions aiid benefits of the office of Post
Master at that time (the tirre oif thre conversation,) I
told him no, I was not Pos--Master at that time, ha:
had resipned before thre extra session, and had sent
my resigantiorn for d, formally to, the Departmrent,
but did roat o~ther it hiad been received or
Post-Manster at Edgeficlhl, for the precise date, as lie
did see rny resignation, and seal. and send it for
ward for me. i thiink he replied that it did noit
mat ter whether it had been receiveda or no-t, or words
perhnaps ta that eflect.
Should there be any difference of opinion betwceen
General J.oNes and myself about what lie under
stood mc to answer to his inquiry, I am confident
that it was owing to his miisuederstarndin~g of wtvri
nmeaning I intended to convey.- I know that he
would not mnisconrstrue internrionailly.
Thre lionse w-as in Session ar. the tiime when the
conversatiarn took place between us, in the lob'by,
after which I returned to my place in tire Ilouse,
whtere I remanined till its adjoaurnrment. That even
inrg T called on a friend (and other legal gentlemen)
whno was of opinion that I had resigned at the proper
time, though lie promised that on tihe next day lie
would exaraine the precedents in such eases, and
answer me more to his satisfaction. Thea next even
ing I saw hinm anrd I think it was on Friday or Sat
urdlay of the same week, that I made tire facts known
to thre House. Whren the cornmunicantion was read
by the Speaker, a Member rose arid otl'red a reso
lution to th- effect that the sent be declared vacant
arid Writs cf Election issed, forthwith. A Memn
berfromn Charleston objected, tipon the ground, that
it was a matter not only affecting the Alember, but
also Iris constituents; and proposed that the matter
be refercd to the Conmmitte:e upon Privileges and
Elections, that the qucatiori might be bettled for all
time to come, as threrc were similar eases coming so
frequently before the Ihouse. Another distinguish
ed1 lawyer then addressed the Ihouse, andr stated
that he would give tire opinion as a lawyer, that the
Constitution, properly corrstrued, meant that tire
time of elligibility applied to the time of taking tire
oath, though hre said he believed that timne-honoredl
precedents had decided to thre contrary-, and hre was
willing thrat the matter should go to the appropriate
cormmittee, after which thre matter wvas placea be
yond roy control. The report was very lenrgthy,
enibracing a great deal of information, that wvill serve
as matter of referenee for the future.
The Esquire charges mc with: attempting to manke
the impression thrat he was not a ecandidate. .inst
thec reverse was the fact. I Juul entertain somte fe-ar
lest it might not be wvell understood that I had op
position, and his friends manage tire matter so as to
defeat mry election. Whren I made the inrquiiry
whether Ire had consented for Ihis nnie to be art
nounced, I was not singular ;his namie had been
brought forward by Iris friendhs, and thre opinion
was enrtertained by some that Ire would rrot run.
About that tinme I was informed by A. J. Sair:.y that
S. P. Tosrrxrxs told him that S. S. Toarrxiss was
not a candidate. It hars happened that seine of thec
rirst men in this Distriet have withrdrawnr their
riames after being arnourrcd as candidates; arnd
lie opirnion was entertained that it was derogato~ry
:o thre high notions of a gentleiman to be a candidnrte
rader such circumstances. Onr thne 22d of Decem
i,eIrhis name.~ was announced in the Advertiser, said
o be by Iris friends.
Yet after this, there w'as a corntrariety of opinion
bout Iris candidacy ;consequrently the eause of amy
nquiry of Mr. Kxv and others. Mfr. KF.- was di
cetly fronm tire village, and said to be his warm
riend. lie said S. S. Toarrarss was a enindidaate,
fcer wiih the fact was extended bry my friends and
rayself to the following places, viz: Graniteville,
Intehers', thre Lutheran Church,Lybrand's, Ilol
enbake's, Whrittlevs, Sardis' Chrurch, Rhrinechart's,
erry's, Cotleman's k Roads's, Col'. C'lary's, &c.
lie says I have the face to conceiliate men, that he
as not, and insitruates that I wvent to L. H:ill's
ore for that purpose. On the contrary, I went to
ie Village to settle rny accounts with thre merchants.
After having been to Messrs. PENN. FRAsxrFrt,
ImLrVAN, and WIrnrLrA5rs & Cfnnrs-rnE, I proceeded
contracted last Spring, before I knew there wits any st
unkind feeling existing between us. I paid the a- b,
count and bought one pound of pepper, from Mr. o
WisE, which I could not obtain elsewhere. Thisi is b'
the purchase of goods the Esquire alludes to. Mr. Ir
Wise was the on!y person I saw in the Store.
IIe says also " One Vote" was Cast in this Flee- f
tion for me, aecompanied by the declaration of the il
v ter that, " lie had seen beuer ien hung." If the U
voter who entertained such sentiments preferred "
voting for me, what must have been his op:nion of
the Equire ?
As to certain other moral grounds, which the
Equire seems to be concerned about, that is stale
stufn, which was urged against ie last summer, and
d-eidtd upon by the people.
I am now fifty-six years of age. I was born ani
raised in this District, and have never lived any
where ese-hazave been in public l;fe ever since
l11; have so managed my affairs, that I never
had suite nor contioversses at law. Although, I
have been a merchant for at least twenty years I
have sued but very few persons all my whAle life,
and ily every act has been seannied and dreded upon
by the people. They have sustained me, and have
made such demonstrations of thir confidence, that 1
the publie mini cannot be misunderstood. I am
willing at all times to trust myself in the hards of
the people of Edgelield. And if they should at
any time or under any circumstances think fit to
repudiate that which they have twice done, I will
submit to it without a murmur.

FOR TnE ADVERTIsER.
GREEN WOOD, Feb. I, 1853.
Ma. EDITOR: It is a maatter of surprise to many,
that Edgefield District higs so far be'hind her sister
Districts in tie progress of improvement. Is Edge
field blind to her interest I Or has nature bestowed
upon her gifts, with such a profisive prod:gality
that she desires no more ? Perhaps there is not a
District in the State which possesses more weali
more intelligence, and I may ndd District irlde,
than Edgeficd-then why is it, that Railroads excite
so little interest 7 It is trut-, the Legislature has
granted a charter for a roal to run along the valley
of Savanaiah IRiver, whieb is to be a p:art of the
Rabun-Gap Road, but tl:s is not what she wants or
or needs. Why not strike at once a blow, which
will secur-: hir best interests?
No District in the State can boast of greater
local facilities for build:ng a pernanent road than
she can t add to this, the sympathies and interests
of Abbeville, Anlerson, Pickens and Greenv:lle,
and you will see how easily she could rob Columbia
of all her hard-earned laurels, by building a Rail
road from Ilamburg to un;t with the Greenville
and Columbia Railroad, at New Market or Green
wood. We much prefer carrying our Cotton to
Ianmburg because we have Augusta also at cot
mand. Such a road would add greatly to the com
fort and convenience of the Upper-Districts as well
a4 Edgefield. Permit me to make one more sug
gestion, and I will leave the subject with you.
oIld a Convention of your own citizens, appoint
your delegates to visit us, and I flatter myself that
you wi:l not be disappointed in obtaiining help to
build a Rniqad, whose stock will pay, and whose
object will be a mutual benelit. 6 REENWOOD.
