EDGEFIELD, S. C.

W. R.," besides several advertisements are unavoida
bly crowded out. Our correspondents must excuse
us. We cannot help it.
MRerry Christmas !
" A merry christmas," say we, to each and every
one of our readers-to old and young, to grave and
gay, to men and women, to boys and girls, to farmers
and fiddlers, to preachers and peace-makers, to law
yers and lovers, to merchants and mechanics, to
doctors and dyspeptics, to bishops and blacksmiths,
to printers and pill-makers, to all, TO ALL a " MER
RY CHRISTMAS." Stop-to all did we say? Yes,
to all save gossips and back-biters. And for each one
of these we wish a ride with a witch on a broom
stick for every night of Christmas week.
Death of Capt. '. 3. Smith.
Tu District of Edgefield has lost another of her
most high-tuned.citizens in the demise of CArT. J. B.
SMITH, of M11. Willing. This melancholy event oc
curred on Thursday night last.
CArT. SrnT has deservedly ranked among the
most popular men in the District, and was honored at
one time by his fellow-citizens with the largest vote
for the Legislature which had ever been polled in
Edgefield up to that date.
While serving the public, his f ithfulr.e a was above
question. And in priva-e life, his integrity, kindness
and hospitality wereal ways beautifully conspicuous.
Few better men have ever lived.
What our Legislators have done.
We might briefly say that but little has been done
during the Session of our Legislature which has just
closed and that we are very well satisfied with that
little. But custom requires us to go a little further
and to be a little more specific in our remarks. In
decd, were we not so, there might be some little room
to suppose that we felt a little superetlious about the
matter, which is very far from being the fact.
To proceed thet, the Legislature, among other
things, have chartered the Columbia and Angusta
Railroad Company. We felt from the first that there
would be no difficulty in bringing about this consum
mation. Although it may result in affecting certain
tither interests injuriously for a time, yet there was no
reason, supported by fairness and justice, why the
charter should be refused. Our Legis.lature saw this
.t a glance, and the consequence was prompt action
in the premises and favorable to the petitioners. It is
gratifying to know that the South Carolina Railroad
Company receded from their first position of unfriend
liness towards tjhis new enterprise. The Charleston
Mercury reckoned very unskilfully when it spoke of
the prayer of the applicants as a " bold" step which
would but " lead to mischief." It was, on the con
trary, a most feasible demand, and is likely to iring
about benefits of no ordinary kind, not only to a large
portion of our own State, but to the great travelling
public of the country. We gather from reliable au
thority that the work will be taken hold of at no dis
tant day with avidity and will be built independent
of all aid from the State or its fiscal organ. This is
what we like to see. It proves the enterprise to be a
practicable and a wise one. If it be true, as we have
heard surmised, that this direct inland route will
draw annually from the South Carolina Railroad
much more than a hundred thousand dollars wor:h of
travel, two conclusions are at once apparent. The
first is, that the stock will be among the very best in
tho Union--the second, that a tnecessit y fur the Road
is already existant.
The Legislature have also appropriated two hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars towards the conimua
tion of the new State House which is already undler
the hands of the builders. This will be followed up
necessarily by another quarter of a million at the
next Session, and another at the Session after, and so
Ott until thme noble work shall he cotmpleted. We take
it thtat the entire cost is ultimately to exceed a whole
million of dollars. This looks as thotugh our le-gisla
tors were entirely parad opibus, or at least considered
their dear co:Etituents to be so. It wotuld seem too
that all idea of ever changing our seat of government
had completely vanished. The building is to be one
of stately ditnensions and htight architecttural excel
lence ; yet we very tmuch doubt wvhethter it will ever
echo back the like of noble sentiments and patriotic
eloquence which have rung arottnd the n all. of thme
old wooden building which is so'on to he no mitre.
But we are not opposedto the construmction, of a State.
houise, which shtall cntbine thte requtisites of secturily,
durability and beauty. And conceiving the work
now authorised and provided for one of that characc
ter. we regard the appropriation a dlefensibtlc one.
The Legislature have also jointly resolved that
Commander INGR~sttAM be presented with a sword by
the State. Thme Governor is to select attd present it.
We are canfident his Excellency will carry out the
compliment as elegantly as any 'other man livitng
c')ull do it. This is very well. IJaAt is, frotm
all accounts, a nole fellowv, besides being a Sonth
Croinian. His Kozta alfhir was handlsome, and lie
deserves the sword. Give him a keen blade and a plain
scabbard-and let a diamond, if you like, adorn the
A Bill has also been passed, prohibiting the collec
ttt'n of demands agaimist students in Colleges and
Institutions of Edtucation it:r 'ughoutt the State. This
enactment will probably prove itself to be one of
those nugatory things which stand for a few years
and are'then repealed. It will do but littde good to
wartds putting a stop to the old " tick" system which
has so long prevailed. We may he mistnkeni, and
hope we may be. Let it be tried so the fulil. In the
latitude of New England it mnight do. Bitt so lomtg
as the yottths of the sunny Soutth retain the bright
sentiment of htonor they yet cherish, so long will the
merchant trust to that hontor fur indlemntity against
all damages on their account.
Some six or seven Btatks have been rechartered by
the Legislature and one or two ne w ones ittcorporated.
Some three or four new Railroad Companies have
been incorporated, besides the one metitioned in the
outset of this article. But help ha~s been giren to
none of them. Nor are we at all displea'ed at this
feature of thme winter's legislation. rTe precedent of
assisting Railroads with thte credit of the State was
being taken advantage of to such an extent as to be
come alarming. We never favored it and are among
those who rejoice that it has been aboliklted, if abol
ished it really be. But the lust of corporations is
ravenous, and will, we fear, show itself again and
again, like the many-headed Hydra, seeking whtat of
the people's tmoney may be flung into its capaciuus
thrat. Let the people be on their guard against thim
licentious spirit-and let them instruct their represen
atives that hereafter Railroad enterprises are to
stand or fall according to their merits and the ability
f their supporters.
Thme Legislature have furthermore exempted the
srvivors of the South Carolina volunteers, in the
Florda war, from ordinary militia ditty. Poor fel
ows ! mamny of them are on the free list itt Heaven by
this time, we hope; and the greater part of those
alive are too 'ld for duty any how. Thte gratitude
f the Republic comes late enough-bjt " better late
There are various other enactments mostly of a
oeal or private character. A list of them will be
ound on our first page, amounting in all to forty-six.
Upon the whole, wve think the Session has passed
ff creditably to all concerned. Some things were
ushed aside, which many will regret. Chief among
hese is the erection of a monument to CAI.mtouN.
We have heard some of our most prudent and eco
omical old citizens speak of the rejection of this
roposion with deep mortification. Otsr candid
opinion is that it would have been fervently sanction
d by the people of South Carolina.
P. S.-Those who wish to see at what rates the
taxes are to be imposed for the coming year will find
n another column a short Bill, which we commend
o their scrittiny.
All the better for being~ done quietly.
MA rTIN KosxrA has arrived, and, mirsbile dictu,

e Times in regarding this time " best reception of
l l ,I
Eon. Mr. Boyce.
We observe that this talented member of our Con
gressional delegation indicates, at the outset of his s
career, a determination to deserve the name of a faith
ful and active sentinel upors the watch-tower. Al
ready has he thrown out his feeler upon the Tariff
question, in the shape of a resolution asserting the
doctrine of his State upon this all-important branch of 1
federal politics. That doctrine is the raising of only
so much revenue as may be needed for an economical
administration of the Government, by an imposition of
duties which shall bear as equally as possible upon
the different seetions classes and interestsqf the Coun
try. We doubt not that Mr. Boyce is armed cap.a
pie upon this question, and we shall expect to find him,
when the fight comes on, bearing himself right gal
lantly against his opposers.

Agriculture and Mechanics. Each number contains
about fifty engravings. We think it the cheapest

u'rrs gentleman has shown himself one of the
most accomplished Speakers the South Carolina
House of Representatives has ever had. We learn
that his recent valedictory remarks to that body upon
their adjournment were received with the deepest

other day that the entire House seemed devoted to
him. Col. SuMoVs, by his courtesy, dignity, impar
tiality and ability as a presiding Officer. hall iinpreis
ed himself upon those with whom lie has served in a
manner tha will be long remembered.
The battle is at hand.
IT is apprehended that the Pacific Railroad ques
tion will be sprung in Congress at no very distant
clay, and that the contest for the mastery will be a
furious one. The Washington correspondent of the
Mercury says: " A violent and vital struggle will
ensue upon this measure, with the Soutk and the Ad.
ministration on one side, and the North and West on
the other. "The South and the Administration on
one side !" There's a marvellous turn of Fortune's
wheel, for her votaries to wonder at. Yet it is as
true as it is strange. And we fancy the luck will be
right thankfully profited by. The fellow-ship is ac
cepted and we will fight it out to the last. So have
the Southern etates resolved. Let their champions
in the Federal Congress spurn the provoking jealousies
of spoilsmen. and prepare for something higher and
more honorable. Let them compass the full breadth
and depth of this great argument, and study to defend
the Constitution in its purity and simplicity. So
shall " the South and the Administration" triumph.
Tue Independent (Abbeville) Press makes the fol
lowing sensible observations, prefatory to sundry ex
tracts from and comments upon th. President's mes
sage. Our cotemporary gives precisely our notion of
what a document of the kind ought to be. Thus
writes the Independent :
"'Tte first annual message of President Pierre has.
ju.<t reached us through the columns of the Charleston
Courier. It is an admirable document, sensible, per
spicous, nosdest and temperate. Its style is rather
singular, though we think it all the better for that.
It is historical, not controversial, and is free from the
slightest shile of partizan feeling. It seems to us an
undignilied impropriety in a President to intuse party
feeling and controversial argument into his message.
