SWEARING IN OF TME VICE M~ESIDEraT.
The New Orleans Picayune says: " We have
Iseen favored with the following extract from a
private letter from Matanzas, received in this
city by the Crescent City:
For the first ime in the hidtory of the Re
public hias the m)1an1 chosens by the people for the
second post of honsor. takens the oaltlh of otlice in
a foureign land. Williamu Rufus King was, on
the 4th inst., sworn in as Vice Presidunt of the
United States, at thle Cumbre, near Matauz:as.
" Tbe day was a msnsst he-utiful one ; the clear
blue sky of the tropies over our heads, the eme
r.ald cirpet of Cuba be:wath cur feet. and the
delicious sea breeze of these latitudes sprinkling
its coolness over all of us. Koly in the morn
ing Conul Rodney, deputed by judge Sharkey
to admninister thle (;,th,, left towni onl horseb-A
for the Cumubre, accompanied by several Amer
can gentlemen. A pleasant ride of three miles
brouglht us to the estate where Mr. Kinr was
residing, called La Cumbre, (tihe peak) from its
situation on the culminating point of the hilIs
that immediately surround Matanzas. The view
from here is one of the most beautiful the eye
ever looked upon. Far as the vi-ion could
reach in this ek-ar blue expan-e, the beautiful
vAlley of the Yumuri extended with its winding
river, its var.ying fields of green and gold. dotted
here-and there with white sparkling buildings
thait rooked like pearls set upon emerald, and he
brown hills stretched far, far away il tihe dis
tance. No more lovely or more impressive spot
could have been found in the whole world for
the ceremony, and the solemn frrandeur of the
act and the scene shed its spirit oversus.
" The oath was administered by Consul Roil
ney to the Vice President, who 'was ready and
waiting-our arrival. The-volante was bronlght
up0 to the door, and Mr. Killg stepped into it, inl
order to ride into latanzas before the sun
should be too high to mike it unpleasant. The
whole cavaleade, consisting of' some twelve or
fifteen American gentlemen. immediately nunn.
ted and Torming as an escort aroumid the earriige,
accompuinied the Vice President to town.
"The Creoles who had gathered on the lawn
round the house, uncovered, and mainy a heart
felt " God be with you," broke from their lilps as
we rode away. On ihe road to town the ta
tives, whenever we met them, silently uncovered
as- we approached, and.as we pa:ssed sped after
us the same universalsalutatiou. A few Span
iards, standing in gloomy ire at the doors of
their shops, viewed us in silence, or muttered a
sullen ajo as the dust from our horses' feet ILw
in their faces.
".lr. King left Mantanzas on the sam'o d:.y
for the estate of Mr. Clartrain, in. the partidio
of Limonair, about eighteen miles frsm here.

In 1847, with free trade, they arose to ten mill

to ponder. WVhen theo United States were colo

With freedom, those colonies have become not

Wir have to say I the enliglitened public of Edge
field and the adjoining districts that we-have now in
full proress a )reliaratiory Classical Fchool for hoys,
of a character that will compare favoralh with an,
other like inst iution in the State. This is Iot an idec
anl matter-of-course pa"i. It is the expression of a
fact, of which we are well satisfie-I and of which any
one, who chooe. to test it, will also become cii.
N iee:1. And we . this method of calling pubic
attention to our aiademy, h,:autse we think it onteit
to receive a lirge ant! liber:l share of patronage,
from our own !)ictrict at least. The village of Edge
field has been fo.r a lo-ng time shunnedl by mrinv who
have had boys to educat c, frit an idea that the
mneans of dissipatron wero rea-liy ni-inhe here by
any youth whi-ose prop-ensvi:s might lead him to the
scare- of them. This idea has been exaggerated
from mroth to mnou t, until our towni haus become to
be considered by somre a ve-ry Sodlom. The result liar
hien that utnduir apprcleensions have bee-n created
among parents and guiardianis, atnd our male schools,
of late years, have beeni rather avoided thantr sought
after. What we have to ray upon this subiject in the
present connexiotn is, that we are really noit awvare of
the: truth of the asrertion that schio-!-hoys are now or
ever t-av beeni at all mnore cxpo: ed to vicious infin
ene-s here than a: any othecr vil lage in te land. We
believe the idea to hat-c beecn started on very instulli
cietnt groitn-l. Becaruse t wo or three of o-ur teachlers,
who cared but little about their occupation anid at
tended to it as a hateful ta:k, suitered miss-rule to
prevail with all its concomi:ant evils, these eff-ets
tmtlst needus bet aritrued by soime to an aw ful ima

A Brief Memoir of the lato Hon. N. L.
IT has occurred to us that nothing, at this time,
would be more acceptable to the great mass of our
readers, than a short sketch of the life and leading
characteristics of that excellent man, whose name is
at he head of this article. Though the grave has
closed over him for weeks and though his every foot
print lia been forever eflaced from 'the paths which
lie walked among us in life, yet is Ite still present to
the heart of many a friend and admirer, and many'
many days will elatpse before the impress, which his
virtecs stamped upon the general mind of our com
munity, shil be obliterated. It is this belief which
has impelled tis to offer to the people who sustained
him through a long career of usefulness, the follow
cmg plaint acid unadorned narrative.
NvrrnA.v Lirscosie GRFutN was the son of Ricu
Alan ld 3A RY GRIFFIN. lie was born in the neigh
horhood of Wiite Hall, Abbeville District S. C.,
on the 9th of Feb. 1803, his father having removed
from Laurens District to that locality some years
before the date of his birth. lie was raised upon his
father's farm, in the retirement of country life. Of
his early education we are unable to speak, further
than to say that lie enjoyed, under the care of liberal
minded parents, whatever facilities were within their
reach. And althotigh ie had not the advantages of
a collegiate course, yet his education was as complete
at tie excellent schools, for which his native district
has been long celebrated, could impart to an active
aid iinisitive mind. His greatest proficiency was
attaited at the academy once sitnated at Church-hill
inl the lower part of Abbeville. It may be remarked
here that but few of his compeers, with the best edu
cational opportunities, have passed the ordeal of a
watelifil critic-ism more ruccessfully than himself.
Ukcause ie souhl simplicity and directness in all he
said, aid eschewed the use of ornament or the-dis.
play of borrowed beauties as unsuited to hii aims
and purposes in life.
Mr. GrtIFFN commenced the study of law, at the
villaze of Cambridge, under Mr. WHITNER, (now
Judge WiiTNER of the Court of Common Pleas in
this State,) soon after the expiration of his school-boy
lays. In February 1824, at the age of twenty-one,
ie was admitted to the practice. He immediately
sttled at Edgefield C. H., for the prosecution of the
profession lie had chosen. Abont the year 1826, ie
entered into a copartnership with our present Senator
in Congress, lion. A. P. BUTLER, then. in full site
cess at ;his har. This business connection remained
itibroken until the elder associate was clectei to a
Judgeship. From that time Mr. GaivFiN pushed his
ow: way with an amount of energy, industry and
perseverance which soon placed him in the foremost
rank of the Edgefichi Bar. In his profestsional char
acter lie had succeded' in commanding the entire
confidence and unwavering reliance of a numerous
list of clients. The simple reason of this was his
punctuality and accurney in all the details of busi
niess. together with his imntustally skilful and successful
conchct of all suits coivnit:ed. to his charge. To.an
nconmon degree of cicickiess and shrewdness in the
application of fitting legal authority to the facts of his
caseg, he added a strong co-nmon sense and know
led-re of men which male him a formidable adversary
to the most astute and learned members of his pro
fesion. At tle time of his death lie was in the full
fruition of the most a'nple rewards of near thirty
yearsof unreinittiog toil and close attention to busi.
ess. Tet thoe' who would not fail look to the ex
ample set for them by NAorn.is L. GairFiN, and, if
natcure has not stinted them to an unusual extent,
sutccess must be theirs.
Blt, ahbuttgl Mr. GitIFFIN was thus constant and
strict in the discharge of his office duties, lie wvas not
thereby weanced from all the more animating aspira
tionis of men. Even in the mnilitary, lie rose, by his
merits as atn oflicer and popularity as a comrade, to
the conmmandl of as fine a corps of Cavalry no South
Caroliina ever prodclcedc. We allude to that long
estackhhed company, the "Edgefieldl Hutssars." lIn
this capacity, Mr. G R cFFcN curved for several years,
taking such pride accd manifesticng such interest in the
macageent of his corps as miighit have led the most
casnal observer to remark that in -this, as in every
thing cc which hce atterupted ini life, a faithful dis
charge of every duty and-a determination to succehd
in attaicning rome degree of excellence in her oflicial
hearingz, were the mtotives which actuated him. To
ary higher rank in the military thtan the Captaincy
of the " Idguhield Hiussars," Mr. GisinFFiN never as
piredl, perhaps because lie believed that thioughi a
hihcr grade might be reached, there was scarcely to
ce fountt:l ancther tmore gratifying to its iceumtbeint
than thie lead of a gallant and genterous set of fellows
wio ever evinuced an esprit de corps of the most
chivalric ca-c. Certain it is that in all the struggles
of Mr. GmFccrN's after life Ice never looked towards
I old brothecr-sdliers in Tait.
Icc thce politics of South Carolina, Mr. GncFF'iN hcas
lo lccg participated moure or less, andl, in the latter
rers of his life, to a very considerable extent. le
id:s hcavinig served his District with credit jn the
lower lhmve of our Lecgislatureahe had been, at the
tie of hcis death, for seven gunsecuttive years in the
State Secnate, lacking hut one session of rcmpleting
his sec-on-1 term. it this latter body lie had acqcuired
so hhi~h a repuitation for efiriency and legislative
ablitiy as: to draw from one of his nmost canidid and
discriiiating Cio-Seniators the remarkphlat lie had no
superior icn that assembllage of talent and experience.
Indeed Mr. GarFFN had scarcely reavlhed the meri
dianc of hic cacreer whlen lie was snatched from the
stage of human avtiocn by the decree of an inscrittable
but all.wike Providence. Had lie been spared another
decade, it is not improbable that the State at large
would have found abundicant cauise to manifest hter
appreciationt of his whlucesome influcence in lier coun
cils.-ln thic compulexioni of hcis politics, Mr. GaIFFIN
was a thiorocugh-goincg States Rights Democrat of the
Socth Carolinia School. During the heated strtugghe
of '33, he was a Nullifier of the most undoubted stamp ;
and, believinug that the action of his State had at that
ie acievedl in a large measucre the redress for which
ste contenided, hce s'aw no suflicient grounds to doubt
that simcilar rescults wo'uld follow her action ina mtich
more recent contest, lie was accordingly found, in
15, promliinet'i in the ranks of the- Secessionists of
South Cacrolinca. Jin all his acts however duringth'at
cotest, Mr. GRcIFFIN, while exuhubiting earnestness
aid an honest enthusiasm in what lie believed to be
:. oble effort of a free anud independent State, invari
ably abstained from inivecttve or denunciation towards
his oppontents, preferring the mild but cogent weapons
of reauson acnd common sense.
laainug thus very briefly glanced at the puiblic
curse cof our deceased fellow-citizeh, let us approach
with def.:rence and respect those more sacred rela
tions whlich lie sustainied towards his family, and his
It the month of May ,'1824, Mr. GncIFFIN was
united by marriage to'Miss ANN BUTLFER. For nearly
wenty-cine years they had "climbed the hill of

the many " ills that flersh is heir to." She, now, is in

appiness it will be to soften acid soothe their mother's

In August, of the year 1831, he became a ennvert
to "the Christian Religion and joined the Baptist
Church at Edgefield village. Of this body he re
mained a prominent and usiful member ip to he day
of his death. le had for a long time occupied the
office of Deacon in that Church, and was known by
hundreds to have maintained a spuless character fIr
humble piety in all his relations as a Chriitan and a
Church-member. He w,ardently solici~ous for the
welfare of his Master's kingdom, and ne-;er omitted
an opportunity of promoting it. It was his custom
for a long'time to lecture the colored portion of his
Church periodically. Ths goiod he thus effected is
known to Heaven far bettqr. than to the Worlil. Mr.
GatFFrN was a man of few professions- Even ulpo
his death-hed he made ,o ostentatious Jisplay of
sinctity. But, calling his amily around him, he told
them with the most plai ciomposure that his reliance
upon the attonemegt of Christ was firm and unshaken.
He then addressed a few short prayers to the Thrcne
of Divine Grace, one for each of his afflicted family
and, lastly, one for him9el Not long after, without

"Extract and Publish."

MESSRS. FOOTE AND BENTON.
These two gentlemen, who have very little ii
common, seem to agree in the determinatiom te
give as much trouble as possible to the party tc
which they profess to belong in their respectivc
States. Each has- announced himself a enindi.
dae for the United States Senate, and ore nl
them (Foote.) has already taken the field in ad.
vocaev of his claims. We find the followib
item in the New Orleans True Delta, (f the 1511
" Governor Foote, of Mississippi, has taker
the stunip. to ask the people to elect a Legisla
ture fhvorable to his election to the U. State!
seniae. le was to commence his tour of th,
State by addressing the people of -linds county
at Raymond, to-day."
What may we expect to see, as the result o
this snpreme selfi.shness or vindictiveness? fo
one or the other feelinir must promp the move
ment. There will probably be opposing demo
cratie enndidates in each of the counties of ith
State-between whom not a few Whigs will bi
run in the Legislature. For if Foote succeed
in bringing out candidates pledged to his sup
port, wilI not other npirants have friends in thi
field pledged to their support? The probabl
consegna'nce will .be the perpetuation of Demo
eratic dissensions; ad the return of a Whig i
the United States Senate.
We are led to notice the conrse of Gov. Foot
because we think it should receive, at once,
pointed rebuke from every Democrate paper o
the Union. We do not blame him for de.sirin
to go to the Senate. But we do unequivocall
condemn the course by which he seeks to brin
about his election. if a true Democrat, It
should be content to wait until the Legislatur
is chosen and assembled, and then submit hi
claims to a canens of his party. If noninate<
by that caucus, and duly elected by the body
let him go as Senator to Washingt on. It not
let him stay at home.-Savannah Georgian.

THE LATE TROUBLE AT ItoNDUnAs.-By the
i brig Helen Jane, from Truxillo, Honduras, Feb.
, 27th, which arrived at Mew York on Saturday
r morning, we haIve the following account of the
r trouble on the Mosquito Const:
- About four mouths since the commandant at
F Truxillo dispatched troops to Limas, (in Romain
River, to put a stop to the cutting of mahogany
, by the English, they refusing to pay the duty
i enacted by Honduras, on the ground that the
place belonged t6 the-Mosquito King, which
i Honduras afways denied.
The English entters were driven off-the Eng.
lish flag-hauled down, and the Honduras troops
permanently stationed there. The mission of
the British steamer " Devastation," at Truxillo,
was Io demand the immedinite withdrawal of the
f troops from Limas, with the intimation that if
r the deniand was not complied with by 12 o'clock,
- the Enaglish commander would proceed to re
move them by force. He also stated that a
claim for damages tr English subjects, in con
sequence of their havinaleen driven off, would
hle tmade. He likewise detnanded that English
subjects should not hereafter be interferred with,
The commandant of Truxillo complied with the
demand under protest, and the troops at Limis
- were removed. The people of Honduras, claimr
> Limas as indisputably a part of Honduras, and
deny the right of the English to cut the valuable
mahogany without paying the usual duty.
f SILK MANUFACTURE.-The quantity of silk
r annually consumed by women and balloons i.,
so great, that it is really astonishing how worms
1and mulberry trees keep up the supply. Ac.
cording to the Paris Review there are in France,
no less than 130,000 looms for silk, of whiel
the prodnets amount. to three hundred millions
I. per annum. The faibrics of Lyons yield about
, or nearly two third of that sum- moiety of
, the whole is exported-three-tifths of the ex.
ports from Lyons; the United States consune
the greater part. Competition is foPrmidable
I abroad especially in Great Britain 'nnd Germa.
nv: but it was acknowledged at the Great Ex.
I hibition that Lyons retained pre-eminenrce in
designs and tissues. The 70.000 looms of L~y.
ons oecnpy 175,000 individuals; one-half of
these are dispersed over a radios of from twenty
to twenty-five leagues, the others are in the
bosom of the ei.y. There are three hundred
manufacturing firms, embraeing from four hun
dred ant fifly to five hundred names. The aver.
age earning of the operative is 30 cents per day.
FuENcw FLEET To NJcAnACUA.-It is stated
that Louis Napoleon is about to send a naval
force to San Juan de Nicaragua to demand from
the municipal authorities I here satisfaction for
fines levied by them upon French subjects for
their refusal to comply with some of the de
mands of the authorities of that place. The
French government, before deciding upon this
course made a demand upon the British govern
ment, but tlat government replied that it hand
no resposibility in the ease, for by treaty with
I the United States, it. had relinnqished all au
thority and dominion there.
A CALFOnImA DIAMOND.-It is stated that a
diamond in the rough, as large as a pigeon's
egg, has been dicovered in Tuolunime county,
California, which is to be exhibited in Stockton
-nd San Francisco, and then brought to New
IYork. A correspondent of tle San Francisco
Herald says it has been earefully -and scienti
tically tested by Dr. F. Banks. a graduate of
the Medical University of Loniinana, who pro
nonnatees it, beyond all doubt, to be a diamond
of very rare ptnrity. It, is said to be " larger
tIhan thac crown diamond of England, which is
valued at ten millions of dollars." This is
rather too tougt a story to believe- without
futrther evidence of its truth.
