On motion the House resolved itself into a
committee of the whole, (Mr. B. J. Johnson in
the chair.) and - took up the bills providing for
the election of electors of President and Vice
President of the United States.
Mr. McCrady, as author of one of tho bills,
explained its provisions. The first inquiry, he
thought, was whether any change was necessary;
and, secondly, what course ought to be adopted.
Some persons regard the present system as op
posed to the Constitution of the United States;
but he thought otherwise. That instrument, he
thought, left the matter free. le denied that the
present mode was strict ly an election by the Leg
ishature. As a matter of convenience the mnein
bers of the Legislature had been designated to
cast the vote of the State, to be given by such
of them as shall asseuible'for that purpose-not
as a Legislature, but simply as agents of the
people. The present practice, from its inconve.
nience and expensiveness, he regards as objec
tionable. Ile desired to give the people a direct
vote in the choice of electors. Hle was opposed
to multiplying popular elections, as proposed in
some of the bills presented, and ho therefore
provided for choosing electors at the time of vo
ting for members of the Legislature. Ile was
opposed to the arbitrary control of a mere nu
merical majority, and his plan was intended to
obviate stehl a result.
Mr. Dantzler moved the committee rise, report
progress, and ask le:-ve to sit again.
After some suggestions from Mlessrs. B. F.
Perry, Poppenheii. Middleton, Tillinghast, Tor
re, and McGowan, the committee rose, asked that
the several bills be printed, and for privilege to
sitag:ain at 2 o'clock to-tuorrow.
The Speaker having resumed the chair, repor:s
from committees were called for, and a number
were made, read, and laid over. Amotig them
was a report, by Mr. Sullivan, from the Commtt
tee on Education, to whom had been referred
so much of the Governor's annual message as re
lates to that subject, accompanied by a bill rela
tive to the Free School system, and a resolution
that 5.000 extra colpies of Professor Thornwell'a
report on Edneation be printed; which were
made the special order of the- day for Friday

We copy elsewhere a synopsis of the President's
Message, as reported for the associated press of
Charleston. Owing to the requirements made upon
our columns, by Legislative intelligence and other
matter, we shall scarcely be able to give our readers
this important document in full. We may possibly
prepare an abridgement of it for the first page of our
next issue. In the mean time, it will be seen, from
the ontline we publish this week, that the message Is
a paper of lofty sentiments and genuine States
Rights principles, well calculated to warm into new
ness of life the hopes of even those who had most
completely despaired of the Republic.
We have seine how or other had nn abiding confi
dence in the present Administration from its very
installation. As we thought then of its initiative, so
have we continued to look with approbation upon its
successive developments. And, although not long
since there was that in the conduct of one of its de
partments which by no means gave us pleasure, yet
have we studiously kept our face turned towards the
bright side of things, especially as the blur to which
we allude seemed not to affect in any material degree
the admirable proportions of President PtaacE's gen
eral policy. Looking thus and haping thus, we ob
serve with high satisfaction the tone of his first Mes
sage andl the system of measures thereby indicated.
The cheering spectacle is here presented of a
Northern President, proclaiming to the country, as
the ground-work of ii- official conduct, the strictest
and straitest principles of the most rigid Southern,
States Rights Democrat. And what is better still,
we know that this is riot a mere formal announcement
of a Party's creed, but a heart-felt declaration of
doctrines in which our Chief Magistrate has been
nurtured as it were and for which he has manfully
done battle from time to time, until they are now,
politically speaking, " bone of his bone and flesh of
To speak candidly, it is the knowledge of this last
fact upon which we chiefly rest our hopes of the pre
sent Administration. We are free to say that we
look mainly to one man for a restitution of the Federal
Guvernment to something like its original simplicity
and purity. Nor are we ashamed to add that FaANK
LtN PIERcE is that nian. Ilii principles are sound,
his honesty is above suspicion, and, until the contra
ry shall clearly appear, we are among those who
regarl his firmness of character equal to the emer
gencies of his term. Let him then but go on as he
has begun-let him tenaciously adhere to any line of
action his own independent inind shall suggest-let
him steer clear of the breakers of intrigue and cor
ruption-let hin, Ulysses-like, close his ears against
the Circean phrases of all who ,ball attempt to seduce
him from the direct path of duty,-and, it may be, lie
will he the chosen instrument of reforming the Ameri
can Government and rendering it perpetual.
True, we are taking it for granted that our Presi
dent is an uncommonly gifted man. And he must
prove himself such, or his Administration is destined
to be overwhelmed, perhaps ignominiously. For,
although it came into power by the almost unanimous
voice of the States, yet there was left in the opposi
tion a set of politicians, hurning with rage from their
titter disconiiture and swearing to be avenged upon
the lacad of him, who was placed forward as the ex
ponent of their conquerors. These nen are impelled
by a vindictiveness which will stiffer no rest and
leave rio stone unturnead or scheme untried by which
their revenge may be accomplished. They are al
ready conjuring back the spirit of Whiggery in a
guise to suit the altered condition of the times. Aye,
and " with the wisdom of the serpent" they are
stealthily creeping into the enmp of their victors and
cautiously scattering the seeds of dit-cord among those
enlisted under the triumphant banner.
Biut this is only a part, perhaps the smallest part,
of the datngers whlich threaten the present Ex-cutive.
Trhere ntre thaase, who have been loudest-spokeni in the
ratnks oif the D)emocracy, ns ha are now writhing sub

"Jt:.sts." the caatic correspondaent of the Savan
nah Courier, thus discourses concerning the late split
in thte famous Ctiasria Ethiopean Compatny:
" War has commenced in earniest among two rival
bands of Ethaiopean Singers in New York. It is well
kinown thaat George Christy has been for years the
earl, and itn cotnsequence of htis unrivalled s-kill ini
rattling " de bones," his versatility of talent in the
paun anal low comedy line, his imitation of fetmale
dancing, &.c., has enabled E. P., or "' Ned," as coin
tnoanly called, to amass a large fortune, while, as he,
(George,) thinks, withholading from him the compensa
tiotn due fur his exertions in pleasinig the public.
George wisely cotmes to the conclusion that lie wvill
start on his own bontes ; consequetntly lhe pills Ik
bontes in the keeping of Wood' conmpany, who, as
Irepoart says, are carryitag all before ltem.
Mr. Nedl. thean carries the war abntaost into tile
bowels of A frica, and endeavurs to get the courts to

Thtus wvags the world. From Presidlential Cahinets
dlown to Darkie bands, splits are the order of thte day.
Coiipanies split, and households split, and cominuni
ties split, and mercantile firtis split, and Democrats
split, atid lovers split, ttnd old coats split, and Acade
micians split, aye., aita eveti churches split-and we
see ito good reason to doubt but that sooner or later
ithe world at large will make one general split, and,
possibly, every thing be thrown back into chaos.
Some splits are destructive of botht parties. Othters
help both along. W'hile in a great majority of cases,
as " Jeemos" intimates, the goitng down of " one nig
ger" is directly contiected " wid ale risin' of a nitdder."
Occasionally we hear of what may lhe called an
individual split. Thell last item of the kind which
has reached our sanctuim is the case of a certain
intl-fatigable mistress of a household, not a hiunadred
miles from towvn, who recently split iher throat while
pouring a torretnt of elegant invective n-pon the head
of a delinquentt tire-woman.
T~he " Stato of Matrimonsy."
Sostr. months agao, Mirs. Partington was over-heard'
by somebody wonadering whether this " State of M1a
trimony" was onte of the Unitead States, (" Ike" at
the same timse worrying the Trum-cat.) The Ladies
Book for-Jansuary next informs the old lady that such
is thec fact, and botmnds the new State thus :
" It is bounstdead by a rinig on one side anal a cradle
on the othaer. The clinmte is sultry till you pass the
tropaics of housekeeping, wvhen squally weather sets
in wvitha such power as to keep all hands as cool as

Hodges and 'ullri Zustitutes.
Wx take pleasure in callinattention to the adver:
tisenment of these Academies. 'It will he seen that
ample preparatios's have. been made for the next
scholastic year.' Taking into consideration rhe s' tua
tion of Greenwood, the character and worth of the
gentlemen whto have the care of its schools, nnt! the
facilities afforded by theia t'o ~h. public, we should
say that ite Hodges and Ftller Instihutes were richly
deserving of liberal - encotragement. We bel-eve,
after all, that a country village is a-better place ror a
female ueminary than a Court-House town.
Wx have plenty of -good 'beef to eat now under the
excellent butchering of Mr. GOOsaN. And every
body expects to have quantities of hog-meat, provided
the hog-neat venders will tsake 41 cents for their com
modity. But chickens areagetting scarce, and eggs
especially so. We wnnt ten dozen exactly. Sellers
will please rpply at this office.- As for Flour, the
real Hiram-Stith is actually too high to bty, except
for weddings. And then eqrn bread, at prewrnt prices,
" mounts up fast," as Aunt Betsy Bucklalter would
say. Still, people mtust eat. And in order to do so pro
perly they nmust have someihing too eat.-However
let us iave the ten dozen eggs, and we'll get along the
best we can, ansi say no more about it.
Price of Zmands.
Tint price of lands in Edgefield is certainly nd
vancing with steadiness, if not with rapidity. On the
Saluda and Piney-woods sides especially, is this tlae
case. The reason is, that the advantages and merits
of those sections are onlyuow becoming well known.
We had feared that our Savannah-river lands were
rather retrograding. Theve fears were, however, en
tirely dispelled the other day by the prices of several
tracts, fairly sold. in tlist part of the District, one of
which went as high asfifteen dollars per acre. It may
be set down that lanads ar'e ristaig all over the District,
and they are cheap at that. We believe Edgefield to
be one of the best sections of South Carolina for ad
vantageous purchases of real estate.
Wi are glad to learn from various sources that the
town of Newberry is rapidly becoming an excellent
market for the sale of produce and the purchasse of
supplies. A day or two since we were Informed that
her streets had been for sune time back crowded with
cotton-wagons. Good prices prevail, ansi every iling
indicates protperity. We congratulate our friends in I
that quarter upon ile success which is crowning their
The Press Association.
It was our fixed intention to have attended the
meeting of the Press Association recently ield in Co
Imbnia ; but other and tniavoidalble engagements de
barred us this pleasure. We can assure our brethren
that our warmest feelings were with them. It is gra
tifying to observe the inrmony and coniality which
marked their gathering. Knowing many of the craft
as we do, our promise-is hereby given to be one in asy

Synopsis of the President's Message.
Tim. first annual Message of President Pierce,
was delivered on Tuesday, the 6th inst., to both
Houses of Congress, of which the following-is
a brief synopsis.
lie conmences by sving that the interest
with which the people lirok to the assembling (if'
Congress, nnd the ftlfilnent on that occasion of
the duty imposed on their new P"res"ient, are
the best evidences (of their capacity to realise the
hopes of tIhe founders of the government, as the
sole reliance of this Confedericy is on the jus
tice and iniellig(eniic of lie masses.
The country has abundant eause fur thankful
ness to God 'or the many. mercies showered
upoin the nation ; thus reco(nising the wisdom
of absolute religions tolerations, as no secure
relianee can be polaced npon any apparent pro
gress unle.ss sustained by national integrity, res
ting upon the trrnis of Revehithin.
With regard to our diplomatic reIaionns with
Foreign Powers, the President snys they have
undergone no ch..ngo since the adjournment of
te last Congress., and that those now pending
otf a disturbing character will probably be anica
Respecting tIhe Fishery question, lie says that
the United States never recognised the British
constilruetion of the Treaty of 1818, and t1.
with a view of extending the rights of AmerieM
Fishermen,and regulat ing the trade between
the United States and British American Posses.
sions, negoti:totios had been opened with a fair
prosptect of a favorable result.
In regard to the controversy upon the nittirs
in Central.America. lie says that Great Britain
has proposed an aminble arrangement, and our
Minister in London has consequently been in
st reted to enter into tegotiations on1 the sub
ject ; and lie also represents it as desirable that
the Boundary line between the United States
and the Briti,h American possessions itn the
North-west be traced -ind marked.
The relations with France are friendly, and a
treaty of Coimeres: and Navigation is progress
In regard to Cna, he says, that hie is hppy
to announce that since the last Congreiss no
unanthorised expedition had been litted out
from tile United States, and that shnuld any
s ni movements be unde'rtuken, li will repress
them by all the means in his power.
lie refers to several annoying sscetrrences as
havinatg taketn lh.te at lavana between our citi
ze'ns and Spasish sulijects, and says that prompt
redress cannot be obtained, because diplomatic
intercourse is not allowed lietween the Ameri.
can Consul and Captain General. To avoid
vexations delay. a propo-ition had been imade
to provide fi 'a direct appeal for redress from
the American Consul to the Captain General,
which the Spanish Govermnent had hitlher:o re
fnsed to agree to ; but that our Minister at Mad.
i I had been instrmeted to rensew the application.
lle also recommendsl a prompt adjinstmnetntt witi
Spain of tihe claim tor losses in the cane of the
shetooner A midad.
Concerning the ease of Martin Konzta, he re
eapitilates riets as sit forth in Mr. Mnrey's let
ter, and says that the principles and policy there.
in miaintained will be enforced whenever proper
oce-sion may anrise.
Our Commissisoner in China, he says, lis been
ins:rneted to avail himself of all occasions to
extend our Comnercial Relation with that and
other A!-iatic nations.
Ile mentions the arrival of Commooisre Per
ry's Sqinadron on tlie Ciast of Japati, bult states
tiat lie has not ascertained the elYeet of the Ex
p. dition on the Emperor.
lie refers to til! dislinte with Mexico regard.
