ARRITAL OF TEE STXAK ARA *IA
The Steamer Arabia arrived at Halifax, at
midnight, on Wednesday, bringing one weeks
later news from Europe.
IlVERPooL, Oct. 15.-Cotton.-The Arctic
arrived out on the 12th. Her news had a fhvo
rable-effect on the market, and all qualities ad
vanced 1-8d, except infeFior. The market was
poorly supplied with Fair and Middling Orleans.
The sales of the week were 37,300 bales, of
which speculators took 3.500, and exporters
3,250. Fair Orleans 6 5-8d, Middling 5 3-4 to
7-8d; Fair Mobile 6 3.8, Middling 5 5-8d; Fair
'piands 6 14, Middling 5 1.2 to 5.8d. Stock,
exclusive of what is on ship board 753,000.
The money market is unchanged. Consols
for money 9* 3-4 to 92.
TURKEY AND RUsSU.-The Sultan announced
that if Russia does not evacuate the Principali
ties in fifteen days he will commence hostilities.
A proclamation of war has been posted up in all
The combined fleets have been invited to Con.
The Black Sea is free to neutral flags.
THE New York Express referring to the posi
tion of England and France in relation to the
Koszta afftir says
It is important, as a political and historical
truth touching the position of two of the princi
pal governments of Europe, that the real-state
of the ease should be stated. We, therefore,
state that Mr. Marcy has been-and in tha case
of the French Minister-more than once dis
tinctly inforned of the dissent of the two most
friendly Powers of Europe, to the doctrines laid
down here in tho case of Koszta. We read in
our Vienna correspondence of an entire concur
rence of opinion among the representatives of
the Allied Powers i:: Austria, upon this subject,
at a recent interview among them, and we be
lieve there has been the same concurrence of
opinion at Washington. But be this as it may,
we have authority for saying, that Mr. Marcy
has been informed by M1r. Sartiges, a second
time, that the French Government did not dis
approve of the views of Austria in regar,l to
Koszta, and that he has been called upon to cor
rect the semi-official statement of the " Union,"
both in regard to the pos4ition of France and
England; but he has declined to do so, for the
reason that the official statements were made in
his alleged absence. The Government, there
fore, stands in the position of publishing to the
world a state of facts which is not true-to wit:
that France and England had been silent specta
tors pending the discussion of the question;
whereas, both Governments wero prompt and
earnest in expressing their views to the Secreta
ry of State, with less formality, to be sure, than
Ahe more despotic and interested Powers of Eu
rope, but neverthvless, with hardly less earnest
ness and spirit.
. RAILROAD usASI.-On Friday evening,
(14th,) about dark, the large locomotive loca.
hontas, drawing a train of loaded ears, ran off
the track at_ Schuylkill Haven, at the bridge,
plunging down an enbankment of some twenty
feet, draggging with it some dozen cars, which.
together with the locnmotive, were much
broken. But the most remarkable incident of
this accident is the miraculous escape of two
men, who were seated in the express office at
the time, a small building standing about two
feet from the track, and diree:ly in the path of
the engine. The house was pitched down the
bank, and split in two, with the locomotive fast
upon it, and the men, who were quiet ly smoking
their cigars at a comfortable fire, rolled out at a
crack made by the conenssion, and escaped with
a few slight bruises. There was a can of Iluid
in the otlice, which enught fire immediately, Coll
suming the bUildint, books and palpers, the
flames extending so furiously as to bar all
efforts to save them. TIhe engineer and fire
men jumped from the engine in time to escape

ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR,
EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 2, 1853.
V1 O Sunday, 13th inst., the Rt. Rev. Dr.
DAvis will hold an Ordination at Trinity Church in
this village. The rite of Confirmation will be ad
inistered on the same or the preceding day.
t-P PLFASE turn to Jossrru -WmmLDEN's adver
tisement. It will be seen that he offers at No. 601 East
Bay, Charleston, Paints, Oils, Glass &c., in any quan
tity to suit purchasers.
We advise the- reader to look over the various-ad
vertisements of sales which are soon to come off, thoue
by M. L. Boxn.ux, Admin., the. ommissiqeryand
others. Great chances these, for pe1-ons who ore look
ing out for lands, negroes and the like.
WE paid a visit the other day to the new Steam
Mill of CHIatSTIE & M110Is within four miles of our
village, and must take this occasion to record our
high satisfaction of what we there witnessed.
Te machinery was built and put in operation by
Mr. Gr.oiav SINCLAIR, of Columbia S. C. To say
that it is creditable to him as a mechanic is but mea
gre praise. We do not exaggerate in asserting that it
entitles him to a high position among the members of
his craft. Every part of it is perfect and the whole
has been put together with the skill of a master work
man. As an evidence of this, five hands can at this
mill, turn out lumber at the rate of one thotsand feet
per hour with a single circular saw. This was done
in our presence with apparent ease.
True merit ever deserves commendation ; and we
should be lacking in our duty as a gazetteer, did me
fail to notice the excellent handi-work of Mr. i x
CLAIR as exhibited in the Steam-Mill of CntiSTir
& 3Mists. We advise the owvners of Piney Woods
throughout Edgefield to turn their attention to Steam
M1ills. Well conistructed and properly managed, they
must pay. ___
Guano. Bo Cautious !
A learned gentleman front Maryland lecttured one
day at the late Augusta Fair tupon thc snh'ject of
soils, manutres &c. We did not hear him throughout,
as we were otherwise occupied a part of the time.
A gentleman, who, listened to the lecturer miuch mnore
patiently than wen did, informs us that he annouinced
the broad opinion, that Guano wouud soonter or later
impoverish any soil to which it might be applie~d.
This takes us aback all at once. We were just abott
ordering enough of the article to cover over a fifteen
acre wheat field, andI now-.
Who's got any cotton-seed for sale!i
Glad to see it.
A late number of the Charleston - ME'rcury, speaks
of the first turn-out and vcry handsome appearance
of the MIontgomery Guards, a new volunteer corps
under the conmmandl of Capt. Wri.t~t Loner.
Capt. Locus was for some years a citizen of Edge
field, where he made many friends by his gentlemanly
deportnent. We are pileased to see him takinig his
poition among the aspiring yountg metn of Charles
ton ; and hope for him a successful cnreer. This he
will be nmore than apt to command, if Fortune frowvn
not ttpon him too severely.
The Nassau Litorary Magazine.
A young friend of oturs, now in Princeton College,
senls us a copy of the above periodical with thte re
quest that we "notice." We do so cheerfully. The
M3agazine is a ver y handsome pamiphlet, is puhlished
monthly at Princeto's and edited each month hy some
member of the Senior Class, no one occupying that
post for more than one issue. Any member of the
class has the right of contributing to its columns at
any time. The Editor for September senms to have
been hard rnn, if wve may judge from the very jum
bledt dish of gossip we find' itn his department. Of
the contributionis in this nutmber, we shuuld say that
the one upon she character of Ingo is en titled to the
palm; it is briefly and forcibly drawn..
Some 'uch publication as this might be adva ita
geoushy established in our own College, for the early
exercise of the talents of those who are to be the
future editors, critics and authors of the State.
Origin of Names.
Wisr. men are so'mctimes great fools, and good
writers are not uinfregntently very stupid. fin a late
nutmber of the Southern Reciew, may . he found an
elaborate article in which, amo~ng oilher thuings, con
siderable space is occupied with a sort of disqnsitiun
upon the origin of sundry names of places, rivers and
thmngs. Thte writer finids that Clineh Rtiver is so
called because a fellow, who was crossing the streamn
on a raft with some others, toppled over into the
water and in his terror cried out to his companaions
" Clinch toe-clinch me !"
This is about equal to the supposition that " Poco
taligo" sprung from the circumstance of a low-ecnun
try African having observed to some of the old set
tiers, who had discoverec a mammoth terrapin on the
spot which now bears that name and were trying to
coax it into crawling,-" Poke her tell he go !" A nd
i is decidedly inferior to the legend which tells that
Savannah river derived its name from act of a
pretty girl, whose name was ANNA, It g fallen
out of a pleasure boat "in the old times," upon
which startling occurrence all aboard simultaneously
exclaimed-" Save ANxA !"
" Submission Men."
A " Sotithern Patriot," of late date, exults in the
reflection that, whatever parties may have heretofore
existed in South Carolina, now all, ALLt are "sub
mission men" And its even too true. But some
have become so from choice, brother Patriot, while
others are placed in that category Ay the dire force-of
Corn in Dast Z'lorida.
Tsar. only serious objection we have heard urged
against this n ow favorite part of Florida, is the great
uncertainty of tihe provision crop. We were speaking
on this point the other day to a neighbor of ours, when
ie informed tus that a nrutual friesi of s both (who
has a plantation in that part of the coontry) had made
this year ff!y bushels per acre throughout his entire
crop. This is magnificent-enough to make "Jtm
VACGus " hinmself smile with satisfaction. We are
glad to, hear of such success,--hope somebody may
make such crops forev- - -id a day.
While a gentleman comes in
from our? 's us that a caravan
Judgo O'Neall Again, Perforce!
IT seems to be our fate to run against his Honor,
the "Faher Matthew of South Carolina," whether
we wish it or not. Only two weeks since, we fairly
knuckled down to the old veteran, and that too, as we
thought, in the most respectful terms. We supposed
then that the arms of our rebellion were finally ground
ed. Yet here we are, again led on by our evil genius
into the lion's lair. This timte,lhowever, we are in ex
cellent mood and propose to say nothing caleulated to
offend the most delicate nerve of his -Ilonor's sensi
bility. We would only " write a word or two to ease
our conscience " as a set-off to the following remark of
the Judge's which is the latest fling ie has made at
us. We copy from a letter of his, addressed to the
editor of the "Temperance Advocate," from Barnwell
October 18th.-Yestenlay I eharged the Grand Jn
ry, as usual; and again, notwithstandling the Adver
tiger's censure, ventured pretty strongly to recommend
the Maine Liquor Law. I think our friend of the Ad.
vertiser will fMid that lie is in this, ashe was in politics,
This " politics" of ours, to which allusion is here
made, must be the advocacy of Secession which clta
racterized our_?iftble sheet during the year 1851. If
we areirbi in this supposition, we grant his Honor
that we were mistaken, egregiously mistaken in our
first calculations as to the result of the memorable but
unfortunate contest of that year. The cause of our
mistake was the taking for granted that South Caroli
nians in '51 were one and the same in mind and spirit
with South Carolinians in '32. In this particular, our
reckoning proved utterly erroneous, and we were de
ceived as. to the whole result. But mistaken or not,
we rejoice to remember that we were, in our " poli
tice," with those who sought to illustrate the doctrine
of State sovereignty and maintain the high character
of South Carolina by a determined course of resistance
to the aggressions of an unscrupulous majority.
But the Judge thinks that we are again to be " mis
taken," and that the Maine Liquor Law is to be the
next grand achievement in our State. We don't
know that we ever sail it would not be. South
Carolinians are getting akbut, as low-down in their
notions as the people of-any other State; and we shall
not be much surprised if they shotid think it "all
right" for one, clothed with the almost-sacred robe of
justice, to preach the doctrines of bigots and fanatics
from the Bench. Neither would we be astounded,
should this Circuit Crusader succeed in getting up a
movement of some sort throughout the State in favor
of those doctrines. We will not pretend to say
whether. it will succeed-or fail, lest we might be
By the way, speaking of " mistakes," we rather
think hii Honor is about as liable to them as most
men. In his first letter to the Temperance Adrocate,
from Edgefield, which we published some two weeks
ago, he says (in his zeal togcompliment the,North)
.hat-Joinx ADAs first advanced the idea of our In
dependence and led the way. This is a mistake for
which we think the learned Judge has no excuse.
Besides betraying a singular ignorance of the history
of his country, his mistake is against his own section
RicnAaD 1[EsnY LEE and PATRICK HF.nRY of
Virginia, and CHtaIsTortEa GADSDEN of this State
were :he first men in America ever known to speak
of -eparation and independence. Besides it was not
Jois ADA31S of 31assachusetts %%ho first led off'there,
but Sumuel Adams, if history be correct. As far
back as 1765, eleven years before the Declaration of
Independence, there was a Convention held in New
York to prepare for concerted resistance, and South
Carolina was the only colony South represented
there. She had the chairmen of three committees in
that body. And yet the Judge undertakes to instruct
the country that the North led off In the great cause
of Independence, and, what is still more absurd, that
thcreforc we muit now follow the Yankees in the
lead they have taken in the Temperance cause. And
here his Honor blunders into another " mistake."
The Yankees are not the leaders in Temnperatnce. If
it is the real Simon Pure leader in Temperance that
his Honor is wanting, he must go to Mahomet himr-elf,
who is after all tihe Great Father of Temperance soci
eties and TIemperance laws. He made it a fundatmen
tal rule of his religion that his disciples shottld never
touch~ one drop of wine, and did it too, doubtless, by'
wvay of contrast to Christ, who turned water into good
wine as ins first miracle. The great falt of the 3Ma
hiommedan Rteligion is that it mnakes every thitng turn
upon the observnce of certain forms and abstinience
rfom woinc. So, with TIempheranoe societies--they will
take temnperance as a substituta for vital religiod. The
tendency of the thing is to make men satisfied with the
external observatnce of certain'conventional rides,
thereby letting humanity downr from a high and holy
communion of the heart with its Maker. There are
mtteh loftier virtues thtan simple abstinence from strotng
drink. Elevated piety is as much above mere Tem.
perantce morality, as is the sublime Religion of Christ
superior to the sensial creed of Mahiomet.--But .Judge
O'N.EL, and his followers seek to lead mankind to
sobriety and morality by othier meanis tihan those which
Chrnist -has satnctioned. Perhaps thte Judge ssilt say
we are " mistaken " in this also. We shall see.

the other for 26 negro slaves, 5 mules, 2 wagans,
4 horses. I yoke of oxen, 12 head of cattle and 2.5
hogs, for the consideration of $12,000. But it is
not true as stated by him, that Joon Toseixiss
gave the widow of FRANK ToIrciss. at that or any
other time, such insttruments as he refers to in that
connection ; but onl the contrary, on the 29th day of
the sante month and year in which deeds referred
to were executed, he executed and delivered to
FRANx To.triciss, Eimtiultaneoialy, with the surren
d:r of the deeds, an instrument by which lie ac
knowledged that lie " relinquished till the right, title
and elaimi to sundry property, deeded to him by F.

two wagons, by whicl iistrtt(ent it was certitied.

These were the tranaftions between FRANK

Q(.%mra SPRINGS, Ga., Oct. 12, 1853.
Wi take the following extracts from an an
thentic work, published by Mr. Williams, who,
from a long residence in China, has been ena
liled to write knowingly upon the various sub
jects embraced in his work:
" The denseness of the population has long
since driven out all wild quadrupeds: and there
are also few domestic ones, such as are found in
Eastern count riess. Beasts of burden are in a
great degree super.seded by the means of trans
port affordeI by the numerous rivers iid canals
and by the coolies or Porters, a cla's of athletic
men, who take the place of animals in carrying
burdens and in dragging boats. Animals are ex
eluded, to leave more food formnen.. There;are
no neadows for feeding cattle ; but the.ptire
-il is ui-ed in faising food for the inihabi ts.
Wild-gtts are sometimes caught, and consi red
a great dainty. WMinkevsi.are foundin the Sdith
west provineis. What few hors aind asses -are
found in China are small, and very inferior in
every respect. The buThlo is -dmetimes used
in plowing. Dromedaries are used between-Pe
kin and Tartary. Tnere are also hogs, goats
and sheep. There is but one variety of dogs in
the country, an anital about one foot high and
two long resembling a small spaniel. Raits are
very abundant and furnish the common people
with meat. They are very large and destructive
Of the birds in China, there are the eagle, the
falcon, the magpie, crows, sparrows, cormorants,.
vurlews, quails, pigeons, larks, pheasants, the
rico bird, and many species of aquatic birds.
Cormorants are used by the Chinese ft.r catch
ing lish. The falcon is imperial property, and
the magpie is sacred to the reigiing family.
Fish forni a very important part of the food
of the Chinese,and'great care is taken in raising
them in artificial fish ponds. The gold and sil
ver fishes are kept in glass globes as ornaments.
Among the fish eaten are the col, sturgeon,
mullet, carp, perch,sea-bream, &c,; er.b fish and
oysters are common on the coast.
. The larger species of reptiles are unknown in
China. Frogs. lizards, and fresh water tortoises
are common. Venomous serpents are very rare.
China lproper contains 1,300,000 square miles,
and the dependencies, which cover an area of the
whole etmpire, 5 30,000 square miles. Though
the depindt-ncies, conisting of Chinese Tartary,
Thiblet, Little Bucharia, and the peninsula of
Corea, are three times the extent of China it
sell, in other respects they are vastly inferior to
it, being in great proportion comparatively des
erts, withi a straggling and rapacions population,
petlaps altoget her not one-tenth in number of
thote of China proper."
JUVFst LE PRECOCITY.-The Tyler (Texas)
Telegraph of a late date, has the following ie
count of a " smart boy."
A good deal has been said of late about the
precocity of American youth, but all that we
have seen of them is completely outstripped by
a " Mexican " boy of San Anonio. He attempt
ed to vote at the late election, but from his
youthful appearance his vote was challenged,
and it was proven oti oath that he was but thir
teen years of age. The Ledger says that ie has
a wife and child one year old, and for the sake of
gratifying curiosity, the editor of that paper was
led to consult a physician on the subject, and
was assured that this ' boy ' could not have been
exceeding eleven years old at the time of his
What vill our little sharcrs, who exult at the
