ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR.
EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 19, 13.3.
flao THE Editor having gone to the great-Georgi
Fair, we have seized the. ot.asion to get throngh thi
-tightest press of advertisements we have ever yel
encountered. After this, we hope to- give more
reading matter on our inside, both original and- se
The Weather and the Crops.
d7 a'dl'y spelt of several weeks dur
0 provetd eminently favorable to e
saving of the cotton crop, y
eiteshave ILady housed the great hulk of their
cotton. Corn and pea-vines have also been gathered
to-a considerable extent. If the weather remains as
beutiful as it now is, for two weeks more, the great
majority of farmers will have nearly completed their
fall harvesting. We are inclined to think-that all the
crops are falling a good deal under the estimates
made during the wet weather of August and Sep.
tember. If any one of them does not, it will be the
cotton crop. But even that is not expeated to be any
thing like a full one.. Corn is selling at- 75; cents per
bushel at this time, wvhich fact goes directly to show,
that a superabundance or it is- not anticipated. On
the whol&, we shall. make in this section *a tolerable
turn out only.-In the mean time,.the country is more
sickly than we have known it for some years, and
all are looking with more than ordinary anxiety for
hoary Winter's approach.
Wz cheerfully occupy a part of the space, reserved
for ounrelf this week, with a letter recently addressed
by Judge O'NEAItL to the Temperance Advocate. As
we have said that we regarded his advocacy of the
Maine Liquor Law from the Bench a " miss-step," it
occurs to us as being fair and right to give our readers
his Honer's remarks in reply to that point. In ex
tracting'this portion, we concluded to publish almost
his entire letten Ih reply to that part of it which
seems intendid for us personally, we have but one
remark to make; and it is, that we have never at
tacked Judge O'NEALL in any shape or form without
direct provocation on his side. Thank God! we have
more respect for gray hairs and long-tried services.
The Judge's expression of kindness we cordially
reciprocate, while we ignord all application of the
stercotyped allwion to.-, " gi--_- Tnany,,e
much regret it, if any language of ours has had
aught to do with engendering in his Honor's bosom
the feeling of morrification spoken of in the last para
graph of his letter. We are far from being unmind
ful of the high public service he- has rendered his
Wz think the town of Edgefield a great place, and
therefore say so. Every one else harps upon the
merits of his burg, and why may not we ? It is-a
matter of no interest to the world at large how this or
that or the other village may rank. But with " the
world at large" we have nothing to do. Our remarks
are generally meant for home-folks and neighbors,
and by "home-folks and neighbors" we mean our
readers. Now we have the weakness to think that
" our readers" are fully up, in point of both moral
and intellectual worth, to the readers of-any other
sheet in or out of America. And, upon the same
principle, we cherish the idea that our town-this
same little village of Edgefield-is one of the greatest
places "on top o' dirt." There are- a good many
reasons for ottr saying so, some of which we will
take this occasion to mention. In -glancing at them,
wve want all to understand that wve hiave been more
than ten miles from home several times, havo-" sen
the-elephant" as often as most men and have-a-pretty
fair rnotion of<"whvat's what," being able to distin
gutish " t'other from which" in a majority -of cases.
Thtus much being. premised, we go-on to indite the
Firs' ar.d'foemost then, we were born in Edgefleld
village. Down in the valley there, in the old house
nearly hidden from view by the intervening boughs
breatth of life. Ever poet, or orator, or man
feeling, who values his~ reputation for sentiment, at
the prire of a gingercake, will say, "tisis enough
write not anotther line-we all give up, sir, that you
would be unw~orthiy of your natal star, did you think
otherwise than you have saitd of the spot of youi
nativity."- But we prefer to travel a little further in
nmaking out tile reasons of our preference. The truth
is (please understand this remark "aside," as the
play-hooks have it,) we have got an article of some
sort to wudte, and we don't intend to be cut short by
any one's grainting the questiorr.
Secoendry then,. wve- grew up here. IHard by is the
"schiool-boy spot," where, under the guidance of
some score of masters from a Manity down to a Staf
ford, our young ideas were taught to shoot. Every
dell arid tdingle, every slope and hill-tide in the neigh
burhoord are connected with some remminscentces of
youthful frolic. Hlere again a sentimentalist pokes ir
his nuse and says
" The chord within my heart wvhich thou hast touc'd,
Vibrates in unison nith thine."
'That may be very true, gnd fellow ; but pray re
frain from interrupting the genial flo~w of our fancies,
at least until we have got half way down a column
You may then " tait it off" with any quotation you
poetic lore may suggest. To avoid your interferenc
absolutely, however, we will quit the personal an
sentimental reasons, for the opinion which we hav
tnade our text, and wind up -.iths the more matter-cl
fact items of " this great argument."
We proceed with the assertion that Edgefield is
-great old place. We so assert, because, among othe
things, she has given. to the State some of the fin
"Msme-- 1n history-becausie lir citi
stand their rights ang3 tie spirli e neso m
because, in all the social courtesies of life, her mer
and women have always been 'anfait'-and, to comt
down to her more present and immediate merits, be
cause she is still pursuing the good ord even. tenoro
her way--hecaiise she is furnishing to all around- the
very best facilities for educatinng the chiilrens of tbe
community in a finished manner-because she hal
all the advantages of a quiet, retired Southern town
filled with a well-ordered and intelligent population
with ample facilities for all the rational purposes o
life and without the rabbleishi characteristics of
Railroad-because, in short, she is all that mnty b
clainied for n pleasant, healthy, pretty country village
This summary of reasons we might enlarge upon
and in truth wve had at first intend'ed to have done
so; but. being convinced that they will not be con
troveried and seeing that we have very nearly made
out our half-columnn, we dismiss the subject as cor
dially as we embraced it.
Ta last number of the Southern Agricidtnrias
(which, by the bye, is an admirable one) gives a lettes
from A. B. ALLtEN, on the application of this famoui
manure. Mr.. ALLEN seems to have been experi
menting in thme article ever since its first introduction
into the States. We clip the following extract as
containing hints that may be useful to some of oui
" But of ibis I am already well satisfied, from oth-.
ers' and my own experience, that the best, the most
economical, and most reliable method of applying
Guano to any crap whatever, (ninless the land earni bi
irrigated at will,) especially in a Soamhern climate,
is to spread it broadeast in the fail of the year, at the
rate of 100 to 300 lbs. per acre-according to thme
quality of the soil-and plow it in from three to
twelve inches deep-the deeper the better-and ihen
re-plow in the spring far the crop.. By this methodl
the Guano will be gradlually givsng ont its ammonia,
&c.. to the soil, and by re-plowing in the spring, it
will be thnroughly mixed up and incorporated with
it, so that corn, cotton, anid the most tender gardet
vegetables, can be planted any wvhere in the soil so
treated. without danger of the Guano injuring from
causticity, &c. In fact, this is equivalent to making
a compost of earthi and Guana, and saves much labor."
In addition to his letter, Mr. ALLEN has transmit
ted to the Agricultsurist a set of rules for the specific
application of Peruvian Guano. We shall endeavor
to publish them in full next week. At present we
ive only the first one nf themt. It is as important as
t is brief, and we advise those who are now about
~aying in their supply of Guano to bear fl in mind.

FoR TH E ~A DVERTISER.
Ma. EDrToR: On .the " Five Noteh" Ronad,
leading fron Edgefleld C. H1. to Hamburg, about
two hundred yards from where said road haves
the Hamburg road tit Dr. Miis' plantation, there1
azis once a good bridge over the deep gully that.
erosses the road. I say " onee" because there is
no bridge now,. although the gully stil yawns an
impassible barrier to travellers along the public
highway. It is to be hoped that the Town Coutueil
of Edgefield will soon have tihe bridge rebult, as)
'strangers might have their lives , lost, or at lcnbt,
seriously endange.red by such a nuisance, particular
ly in night time. It is true that the Plank Road
has diverted most of the travel fronm the-Llaidburg
and Five Noteh Roads, still a few personus n6isa'nd
then yet pass the Five Notch IHighwvay, .i-hiehi
should be put in proper order for the neighiborhiod
use if for nothing else.

V ~:-, TO . W. ELE
-, A. H. Liitle,'before ti ey were
en don to regret the loss of atnothier favorabl-e.
F. WV. Selleek, the dashing, gay and chival
rie Solleek is no more,'tis no dreant that harro ws
our minid but a startling fact.
F. W. Selleek wa~s among the gallant sons of
Abbeville wvho rushed to the rescue of their
country's honor wheni the alarm was sounded.
and wa~s elected to the post ofl Lieuienant of
1 lirst'saw him in Chairleston, prior to our de
part tire for the seat of. war.-there our acquaimt
anee began, which soon ripened into intimnecy,
which contilnued unbroken until.
"Grim w ir had smoothed hit wrinkled front"
and we had landed upon our native land.
Lieut. Selleek possessed a spirit which made
the lif of a soldier a pleaisure to hinm, for when
gloom surrounded uis,-when despair bid fair to
Iake the place of hope in our breasts-his exu
berance of spirits would increase, and he acted
upomn the principle of "Conic whait wilt l'il
laug'h." From the ready attenmion to the comtu
plaints of his command, he s1on1 bee-ie a favor
ite, not only with theni, but with the ratnk and
file of the entire Regiment.
Among our superior omeiers and :among his
equals in rank he was extremely popular, and
drew around ham a large number of warm and
Idevoted friends. His jokes were proverbial, and
though his keen satire would strike some of hi~
victims to the quiek, still no offence wvas taker
ror meant. It was not uincommaon after he hac
Stortured some of his friends alm gtt parg
lion. t hgo- lu ea~i .saae9s iflo say what yota
es~ tut no0 onc else dare taunt mec thus.
At Contreras. lhe soon gave evidenice of hi,~
tnflinching bravery by the uncommon coolnest
and presence of mind which he dislayed during~
that short, but saingtiinary engagement. Even
when the air seemed thickened with the balls oh
the enemy, he allowed no opportunity to esenipt
him, to pass a joke with his inearesnt neighbor.
After the engatgement his compnny was de
tailed to guard the prisoners, by which order he
was denied the honor of a position inothe bloody
drama of Chiurubusco-wvhich disaippointed him
very much, but lie was too good a soldier to
murmur. He afterwn'rds said to us, whlen we
were lying on the field of Chiurubuseo, "Boys,
I wished and prayed to be with you but ifate or
dered it otherwise."
At Chapultepec, he fotight with the coolness
oaNeand the settled determination of a
I Muraturging Abbeville to "come on."
Stopping bitt a moment to breathe, after the
sallen) foe had given up the Castle, he rushed on
towards the Garita de Belen, and soon he was
seen far in the adv'ance. On reaching the Garitan,
he sprang up on the wall, and amid the booming
of a hundred cannon-amid the storm of' grapie,
cannister, andi rotmnd shot, he walved his handker
chief, and rave three chaeers for South Carolina.
The gallant Quitman, who was wvatching him in
tensely, and seeing the exposed position he was
occupying-for he wias literally drawing the-en
tire fire of the enemy,-ordered him down, and
in descending, he received a severe and painful
wvound in the leg.
He remained in hospital until his wround fully
Irecovered, refusing to accept of a farlough, but
preferringr to remain, and share the future toils
and hardships with the few-the very few, who
had passed through the fiery ordeal.
Alas, poor Selleek ! Your piee will now be
vacant, when your brother Palmettos meet 'round
the festive board, but they wtill not forget thien,
but even amid the scenes of festivity,. gey will
Idroy a "siit tear," vrhen .your na~ is men
tioned, and memory will hurry us back to those
trying and thrillingz scenes which we passed
throughb side by side, and which the world has
long since forgotten.
Brothers,-to us who are still permitted to
dwell on earth, these solemn admonitions should
teach us " to live " and teach us to " die."
Our band is small, and death is fast thinninig
our ranks, and before many suns have rnn their
course, onr bodies will hare been laid under the
elods of the tvalley, and our spirits inhabitants of
that undiscovered country, from wvhose bourne
no traveller returns.

for the sub-marine wire, on the improved phmn.is
