* * * Let it be remembered that Colum

in insisting upon three things.
L That the Blue Ridge Road shall fix. its
eastern terminus at Anderson.
2; That. Charleston shall not have a shorter
or moreldireet connection with the Blue Ridge
Road than-that affbrded by the G;eenville Rail
3 That thetraffie destiied for Charleston
shall pasetli-ongh Columbia.

Let -us examine now its bearingr upon the
'Gi-ee-nville Road. We do not yet know the ex
act distances involved, but Charleston will cer.
- tainly be from..fifteen to twenty miles nearer
.Anderson by the Savannah River Valley Road
than by the Greenville Road. This, thmi, is de
- isive of all the trade from the West whose ul
timate destiation shall be Charleston; the
Greenlle Road will get none of tht. Let u
um up all its effects. -Columbia will not ce
the transit through the town, of the Charlesto
trade. The rival towns of Augusta and Savan.
nah will be furnished with a better cunneelion
with the Blue Ridge Road than Charleston
not only depriving Columbia of the .speetae io
trains passing through the town, but. despoihing
Charleston'- and' the State of so much of the
Western tradeltobiher with all of its direct and
incid'ental-.advantages.' Columbia will lose r

these intereste conducted thiemnseles in thi
emergency ? Have they "isouinded tihe toe-it
and-rid the 1angof oppbsition ?'' Far, very
from this. The Greenville Railroad and the
Coluinbia -South. Carolinian are silent: : Tht
pecople' of Anderson are actually engag'ed in ma.
king apeeches thirough the e'onntry, in support ol
the Savainnah River. 'hley Railroad, and.-havei
*- even subscribed a very laurge sum in aid of the
enterprise. To this subscription they have af
fixed a condition. WVhat is it ? That the Rail.
road shall come to Anderson. They insist. (and
-Columbia and the Greenville 'Railroamd unite in
support of the measure) they- insist that the
Blue Ridge Road shall fi its eastern terminus
at Anddrson, and that the Savannah River Va'l
l ev Road shall g.o there and mneet it. Had they

*they could have done no more. Hand the. Green

~ ith thiieinterests of Anderson, Columbi, and
the Greenville -Railroad? We have shown what
will resnlt, from the construetion of the Savannah
R4ver.Valley Railroad. This cannot be half as
bad for eitber of these interests. The trade of
Columbia with the interior region tributary to
the Greenville Road will remain undisturbed.
Nearly all the local traffic on this Road will con
tine unmolested. Hamburg and Augusta will
not be brought nearer to Anderson and as near
to Greenville as Columbia, causing the loss of
trade to one and traffic to the other. Columbia
will receive all the goods intended for distribu..
tion in- the Middle Districts, coming by the Blue
Ridge, and the Greenville Railroad will get the
transportation. What is destined for Charleston
and the Atlantic ocean will take the straight
road to Aiken. It has been suggested that a
compromise might be effected. That the Blue

what would.GoluInbia or the Greenville Raji

the"96 branch, and not pass -through Columbia.
All the business of Greenville, and the whole
region around having the same destination, mid
-that now passes through Coluombia, would .take
the same course. The Greefaville Ratlroad would
-sain 40 miles of transportation from the Blue

Our Advertising Columns.
BuSINESS men are now properly appreciating the
benefit to be derived from advertising in our paper.
We are glad of it, on our own a(count as well as
theirs. The circulation of the Advertiser is daily and
rapidly increasing. It is very certain that there is no
better medium on this tide of the State, for merchants,
manufacturers, and tradesmen generally to use, in at
tracting public notice to their respective wares. We
not only insert all notices committed to us handsome
ly and conspicuously, but we have a habit of direct.
ing the attention of all readers to them, which amounts
to almost the same thing as a double advertisemeit.
Those who have not yet tried our colunms for purpo.
ses of this kind would do well to think about it.
This week, we give several new Advertisements
One is from Mesrsrs SNOWDEN & SHEAa, an old anti
well tested firm, whose successful mode of doing busi
ness is perfectly well known. A second is from R. L.
DELPR, who has received, some stuperior Cotton girts.
A third one is the notice of JoElt Ctiaar, who is
going to open the old Atnerican of flamburg in newa
anid improved style.
Then there are some advertisements wshich have
been in a week or two, viz: that of BEAU. & S'ro

ATTENTION is directed to the notice published by
us this week, of application to he made for a charter
of aPlatnk Road Company from this place to Rtich

enterprise is being enkindled in the bosoms of ottr
fellow-citizens -in place of the apathy- which has for
some time characterised them. Notwithstanding the
wrong inferences of the " Hamburg Republican" and
" JouN Paosa~ss," we are a friend to improvement
in all branches. of industry. We only .advocate the

'11a caption denotes the situation in which we.
find ourself placed this week. On the first page of
the present number will be seen- an extract from. the
" Hamburg Republican" upon the " Edgefield Adver
tiser%" It seems to have been provoked by an article
in'dur isue of the 17th inst., in' hich we spoke gen.
erally of the severa? railroads and.:railroad projec ts
which are now engaging the atteition of our fellow
.citizens.. The IRepublican" attempts a vein of quint
sareasm towards us which we.must say is by no
means a-fiailure. We think his piece apretty well
written one as-far as mere style and taste are con
cerned. But inasmuch-as hi does not meet us upon
a single material point, we see no. kind of necessity
for 'a reply.' All that die can do therefore is to invite
the attention of- ourreaders to his remarks. It does
not belong to the'Aost.extreme courtesy of'the.Pres.
to do mori. -This is the first of the iwo 'fires which
we have assisted in presenting against ourself.
The other'is the communication of "John Prc.
gress,,-' in an~other part of this page. As to the com
'plimentary allusions to our Editorial ability whici
Johnpiles on at the outset of his piece, we can but
exclaim in the language of " Little Nan, " La !
John 'youfatters now, Pm sure!" But -flattery is a
very sweet thing and exerts an influence to which all
men yield themselves op. , We are not different'fromi

it rather took, as there were several oilier South

the impression initended that we never broachaed the
subject again. . This effort was made some what after

country once more tot look to the future wvith hope,
Secession iwas originally wiell meant, and was a

manaiged, its to dwinidle-into a contemnpt:ble scram
ble betiween the lead.:rs of die State, for the politi
cal aseendency, was nevertheless, most- highly
beneficial to the whole South, -and conservative of
the Constitution of~ the land. To it, and to the
general aiixiety and discontent it inspired through
out till of the slave-holding Staites, my be justly
ascribed our pre.sent security, tho unaiversal and
unqjualified acquie-scenee in the compromtise, and in
the Bill for the rendition of fupitive slaves, the lib
eral complex'on of Pi-e~ident P3ERCv.'s Cabinet, the
promotioni of so many sterlitig State liights men, to
high and responsibleposts in the Government, and
the radical and -hiappmy e'hange of the whole repub
lic on the sul.j'eet of Slavery.
It must be admitted, nevertheless, that, although
nullification aimed "a noble stroke, "-at a high
tarif-still its consequences to South. Carolina were
not. of unmixed .good. In the eagerness of her
eloquent Statesmen to promote -free-trade, and to
throw off the odious hurtlien undler which we iwere

that had been iimposed upon us,.and made: war.

G irernment, as p etexts used by the friends of high
dseriminating duties. for exhausting the treasury,
and inducing something~ I:ke a necessity sfor adopt
ing their favoritesneasures. *So far as internal i
provements iiere thus. abused, by a sordid, unscru
puouis rljority, it was .unquestionably right to
o r opposition, to'themn-or, at least, such a course
in -our-distinguished headers were excusable under
the appialling cicumistmees-that, so threatenedj
overiwhelmning ruin aid -degradation to the South.
Such ai mode of iiarfare, though, in my bumble
judgement, wais unphtilosophical, and gave evidence
rathefr fihe fertile resour ces of advocates, and of
that strong instinet which "snutred.tyranny inthe.
~tinted gale," -than of that high. courage which:
dares to redress wrong on tle moment of-.its inflic

scorns an indirect method of resenting injustice, -it
m attera not how -indirectly soever, si itay be-perpe

To denounce internal improvements, wvhich, ab

country, because Northiern numaufacturers iiere
base enough to make them the instrument and the'
medium of aggression upon the cotton-groiwing and,

General McDUFFIE, by the resistless strains of his
matchless eloquence, precipitated the State into a
ver'frenzy, and himself exc~ted to a degree, whol
ly to deprive judgment of the helm, he carried
others beyond all the bounds of propriety or com

the use of broadcloth, because it- was manufactured
by Yankees, and eatehing-his' coat by the button of
its talc, exhoi-ted thed - to "-tear off the gilded
