WE are told1 that these entertaining performers, (the
one of magic, the other of comic singularities,) are
again in our town. Last night they drew an audi

of seats. "Olh, what a fall was there, my country
men !' But we art' glal to know that none of you
were injnred by the catastrophe. For all were so
much amused that they "squatted upon their hunk

will be again a crowded house. In the language of
our enrapt red brother of the Newbery Sentiel, (when
speaking of the " recherche" entertainments of the

be there !' Butthere'll be a plenty without tts. And
another thing, they beat the Cmacrossrs to death.

Tit Spring Term of this Court commenced its
sitnitig at this place on Monday last, Judge WIIT.xaR

have won for hi im the adaiiration of our citizens. We

On the first day of Court, Col. BAusrxFT called ttp

in reference to the tnournful event of lIon. N. L.
Griflin's death, whereupon the Judge made a feeling,

that the Clerk of the Court be instructed to enter the
resolutions upon the record. The District its not yet
fully felt the great loss rustained in the death of a
man so truly useful is was Mr. GnsFFI. As one of
the first instances of its practical illustration, much

not been oflicially declared as yet. The result is
however well kntown. Catpt. P. 8. finooxs, of

other competitor. Col. PaeEss is next. Then
comes Mr. SCLLtTVArN of Lausrens, and tafter him
Capt. 3. Fosrm 3MAnsitALL of Abbevillc.
To thle metnber-elect we extetnd our coungrat uhations.
We were for another getntletmatn tt is true ; but this
does not prevent its now from wishing for the lion.
P. S. Baooes a brilliant anid useful career.
As to Col. Icxcvs we dlo nsot know wvhether his
friends have really any suffieient cause tohbe mortified
at the result. To those of them who are so we wvould
say.'' keep quiet-it is useless to exhibit ill-temper
on an occasion of the kind--hesides it is in bad taste
atnu is apt to prove itnjurious to the cause in which
yor feelinigs arc enlisted. It has been so already atnd
will he sn agaiin."
As to Col. P. himsel'f, we are very sure that lie has
no cauise for mortificatiiin. Nor do we hueliee that
he feels any. From the beginining to the endl of the
matter lie has hsad no desire to go to Congress. Five
weeks befoire the election he positively declined, lie
there thought the matter w~as at an enid and wvas
grealy relieved by having extricated htimself (as lie
hougt, completely,) from the usnpleasant position.
h~is reannotsneement was ttrgedl by many friendls of
his old Congressional District, lie saw that they
were deeply solicitous about the matter. lHe yet diud
not replhy to thseir demandls. The thing was contittued
until lie felt that it was but the path of duty to suffer
those desirone of doing so to use his natme. Re-an.
nouced in this nmannier, lie was again known to be a
candidate onsly two weeks before use election. Hie
did not stir from his home to attendl a sitngle gathering
of any kind. Nor do we believe that a dozen private
electineerinsg letters were written in his behalf, lie
was rtti upoun public grounids, and it wvas bselieved bsy
his friends that the people, viewitng the matter in this
light, would elect him, flat the people thoitghtt pro
per nsot to look uipons it in this light, except to some
extent in Abbeville and Edgefiel, attd consequtently
(as might have beets expected utnder these circtum
staces,) lie stooid no chance Sefore them. Still, al
though left far beliinsd by Capt. llaoovns in the Dis
tricts of Laurens, Newberry and Lexington, lie wa
several hutndlred votes ahead of any oilier gentleman
its he Old Congressional District.-We drop these
remarks thtat the true character of this race may be
understood, and we close them by expressing te hope
at all may find cause in the future to be satisfied
with the result.

For th- AtIvert:ser.
Mr. Editor: Man is a being of many it:t s
there are duties whiheli he owes to the world, those
wh:ch lhe owes to his coi try, adil those which lie
owes to the State in which he lives. Now, we are
not about to 1-cture tie people of Edgefield District
oat their manifold ditties to the world, their Country
and their Stn:e. We lenve this for the Diviie, ie
Moralist and the St-itesntmn. Neither are we about
to speak with thetm on thltC domiestce dlut:es, whtich
Ithey owe to tle:r wives-anl children, but asslign that
task to Mrs. CADLP. whoa is able to do it not ef
feetually. We are about to address them on those
duties which partake sometwlhat of a municipal char
aeter, and ubich belolg to thea exe'usively as
ciizens of Edgefield Distret.
In the absence of political exctement, and at n
time when thre is no important politeal issue before
the people of aur State, we consider this a proper
sencon to discuss and agitate those questions of a
local character. whicli 'al esentiail to the develop
mcint and protperity of onr Di.str:et. If we r, fleet
Iupon the variois questionA which affet our inter
ests as a Disttict, we shiall find none in which those
interests are more deeply inviolvel than itn that of
Ra;lroads, or a eeap, stfe.and expedhitious mode of
transportation, anid we will venture to say that there
is no great question, of vhich our people manifest
such an amonit of apathy and itdifference. Tt is
unaccountably strange that a people who are aver
avake to their pioltcal intere:sts, and who watch
over their insititions with a jedous and s~epless
eye, should ba. si profoundly inidifferent to ether
great and important sibjects. The one under con
sideration would infusetnew life into the alparently
worn outt energ;ies or aitir Di.triet, woul.l fortify our
inst itutionts, by developing new fields aof enteristie.
which waotld !nerease .the demtands fi r labar atid
enhantce the vs.'ne of atur'slave's.
Several y. ars ago the cuonstructiont of a ailroaid
froni or necar Aiken to. .Edge;field Court Ilouse, was
thmorough'y ag't-ted ; the adlvatnages to be d.:rived
froma such an untdertaking acre ably and eloqauent:y
tages, wvith a e arter and a large amnountt of stock
subseribedh, to our 'injaly atnd eour shtane, we ab:mi
doete work. The. termninationa of that tnfinitr
remnds us fort hbly of 11e tmounit.iint thaat was itt labor
and broughit f~fth a mopse.
Sinace that Ltme many at tempts have been mna'e
to aroutse our people to a senase of their interiset and
their duity, 'but as regards :vecessary action, thos.e
attemapts have leeni futile aind vtain. Should we Ibe
cnt off fromi par ticipating int til. Ritbun (Jap ru-ut -
(which we certianly shaill.) it becomes to its a seri

State, shall stil " slumber and sleep,'' while those
Distriets whlich are our~ inferiors ini wenith,. popiu'a

to wealth. influenice and prospernity. It reonaims for
us to say whaether our Vistriet, which has ever heena
feoremiost to aet her part in lie caanne;ls nad te
battle fields of her counitry. will foar the future haag
as a dead wveighlt, in the chariot whteels of oaur Stita-'s
progre ssion. Goad' forbid thaat .such should be the
case !We yet have r:e n'iden -e int ouri peCopIe, and
we htope the ti~tne is not far distattt, wvhen they will
arouset themiselv es and s-e thic necessity for a prac
tieal antd utnited ..-flert, for the purpose oif estabhlh'n
a Raironal fromt or near Aiken to outr Viilage. This
route has I-een surveyed antd pronouncedl the ceap
est antd most adaantagcens one wve could tinid. It
cant be built as theap as aty road int the counitry o

This Railroad wlould prove itself a mtocst poerrul
agent for the developmenctt of the variedl restonree's
of our District, ande further enahtacemeint oaf our
landed pro'perty ;aitd while it wouhul pay good dlivi

worn out hinds w-mid again bet enlaL into use, anad
by the appliention of inmproved meithodls of atgrienia

In no~ District in our State are thec elemcets of

A Railroad to connect wvith the South Carolia
Railroad, would remove the greatest obstacle with
which we, as a District, hanve to conttenid. The coast
of transporting our vairied produacts which nowu hmoag
hecavily upon us, wo-uld thena be tritling itndeed. Our
