W. R.," besides several advertisements are unavoida
bly crowded out. Our correspondents must excuse d
us. We cannot help it. t
A merry christmas," say we, to each and every F

Death of Capt. J. B. Smith.
Tut: District of Edgefield has lost another of her
moat high-tuned.citizens in the demise of CArT. J. B.
SMIT, of M'. Willing. This melancholy event oc
curred on Thursday night last.
CAPT. Susrti 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 t
for the Legislature which had ever been polled in J
Edgefield up to that date. I
While serving the public, his f tithfulr.e a was above t
question. And in priva'e life, his integrity, kindness I
and hospitality wereal ways beautifully conspicuous.
Few better men have ever lived.
What our Legislators bave 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 its to go a little further
and to be a little more specific in our remarks. la- i
deed, were we not so, there might be some little roon
to suppose that we felt a little supercliious about the I
matter, which is very far from being the fact.
To proceed then, the Legislature, among other
things, have chartered the Columbia and Augusta +
Railroad Company. We felt from the first that there I
would be no difliculty in bringing about this consum
mation. Although it may result in affecting certain1
ther interests injuriously for a time, yet there was no 1
reason, supported by fairness and justice, why the
charter should be refused. Our Legislature saw this
at a glance, and the consequence was prompt action
in the premises and favorable to the petitioners. It is i
gratifying to know that the South Carolina Railroad
Company receded from their first position of unfriend
liness towards this new enterprise. The Charleston
Mercury reckoned very unskilfully when it spoke of 1
the prayer of the applicants as a " bold" step which
would but " lend 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 hnilt 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
the Union-the second, that a necessity for the Road
is already existant.
The Legislature htave also appropriatedl two lhun
dred and fifty thousand dollars towards the contmnuna
tiun of the new State House which is already untder
the hands of the builders. This will be followed up
necessarily by another qtuarter of a million at the
next Session, arid anouther at the Session after, and so
on tuntil the noble work shall he completed. We take
it that the entire cost is tultinmately to exceed a whole
million of dollars. This looks as though our legisla
tors were entirely parati opiburs, or at least considlered
their dear conhituents to be so. It wuld seem too
that all idea of ever changinsg our seat of government
had completely vanished. The budlding is to be one
of stately dimension's antd high architecttural excel
lence ; yet we very mutch doubt whether it will ever
chto back the like of noble sentiments and patriotic
eloquence which have rang around thme w~alls of the
old wooden building which is somon to he no mo~re.
But we are not opposed to the coastrnct-iosn of a State
house, which shall combhine thus requisites of security,
durability antI beauty. And conceiving the work
now austhorised and provided for one of that chlarac
ter, we regard the appropriation a defensible onte.
The Legislatture haave also joaintly resolved that
Commander Isaat~suaa be presented with a sword by
the State. The Governor is to select anud present it.1
We are nfldent his Excellency will carry out thei
cospliment as elegantly as anty -othaer man livitng
c'ubll do it. Thtis is very wvell. Isonitatm is, froms
all accounts, a noblhe fellowv, besidles beinag a Sousth
Croliniasn. His Kozta affair was hantdsome, and lie
deserves the sword. Giv-e him a keen blade antd a plin
scabbard-and let a djamonad, if you like, adorn thse
A Bill has also been passed, prohaibiting thse collec
ion of demands againast strudent's in Colleges and
Institutions of Education tl.r >ughuout thec State. Thais
enactment will probably prove itself to be one of
those nugatory risings which stand for a few years
and are'then repealed. It will dlo biut little good to
wards putting a stop to the rold " tick" system whicha
has so long prevailed. We may be mistaken, and
hope we may be. Let it be tried so thse fulil. In thse
latitude of New England it might do. Buat so hontg
as the youths of the sunny Soustha retain the brighat
sentiment of hsonor they yet cherish, 'so long will thse
merchant trust to thaat honoF for insdemnaity agasiost
all damages on their account.
Some six or seven Blansks htave been rechuartered by
the Legislature and one or two ne w ones inceorporated.
Some three or fouar new Railroad Companies have
been incorporated, besides thse one menstionted in the
outset of thsis article. But heclp has been given to
none of thsem. Nor are we at all displea'ed at this
feature of the winter's legislation. The precedent of
assisting Railroads with thte credit of thte State was
eing taken advantage of to such r'n extent as to be
come alarming. We never favored it and are among
those who rejoice thsat it has been abolishaed, if abol
ised it really be. But thse lust of corporationss as
ravenous, and will, we fear, shtow itself again and
again, like the manay-hseaded Hydra, seekissg what of
the people's mo'ney may be flung into its capacious
throat. Let thse people be on their guiard against this
licentious spirit-antd let them instruct thteir represen
.atives that hereafter Railroad enterprises are to
stand or fall according to their merits and the ability
of thaeir sutpporters.
The Legislature have furthermore exempted thte
surviors of the Souath Carolina volunteers, in the
Florda war, from ordintary militia dutty. Poor fel
lows ! many of them are on the free list its Heaven by
this time, we hope; and thae greater part of tose
alive are too old for duaty any how. Thte grasitutde
of the Republic comes late enough--bast " better late
There are various other enactments mostly of a e
local or private character. A list of them will be 'I
fosad on our first page, amotuting in all to forty-six. a
Upon the whole, we think the Session has passed
off creditabaly to all concerned. Some things were
pushed aside, which marty will regret. Chief among I
these is the erection of a monument to Catous. d
We have heard some of our most prudent and ec- si
nomicarl old citizens speak of thte rejection of thtis y
roposition with deep mortification. Oasa candid it
npinion is that it would have been fervently sanction
ed by thte people of South Carolina.
P. S.--Those who wisht to see at whsat rates thec j I
taxes are to be imposed for the coming year will find n
in another column a short Bill, whicha we commend 's

MA-rIN Kosz-rA has arrived, and, mirabile dicfu, t

ul and active s.intinel upon the watch-tower. Al
rady has he thrown out his feeler upon the Tariff
testion, in the shape of a resolution asserting the
octrine of his State upon this all-important branch of
:deral politics. That doctrine is the raising of only
a much revenue as may be needed for an economical
dministration of the Government, by an imposition of
uties which shall bear as equally as possible upon
he diff-rent seetions classes and interests of the Coun
ry. We doubt not that Mr. Boyce is armed cap.a
*ie upon this question, and we shall expect to find him,
then the fight comes on, bearing himself right gal
ntly against his opposers.
We are indebted to Hon. L. Iii. KEIrT for a copy
f President Pierce's first message.
The People's Journal.
We have received a new publication with the title

The battle is at hand.
Ir is apprehended that the Pacific Railroad ques.
ion will be sprung in Congress at no very ditiint
lay, and that the contest for the mastery will be a'
urious one. The Washington correspondent of the
fercury says: " A violent and vital struggle will
nue upan this measure, with the Soulk and the Ad.
ministration on one side, and the North and West on
he other. "The South and the Administration on
ne side !' There's a marvellous turn of Fortune's
wheel, for her votaries to wonder at. Yet it is as
rue as it is strange. And we fancy the luck will be
ight thankfully profited by. The fellow-ship is ac
-epted and we will fight it out to the last. So have
he Southern etates resolved. Let their champions
n the Federal Congress spurn the provoking jealousies
if spoilsmen. and prepare for something higher and
nore honorable. Let them compass the full breadth
nil depth of this great argument, and study to defend
he Constitution in its purity and simplicity. Su
hall " the South and the Administration" triumph.
Tnt Independent (Abbeville) Press makes the fol.
owing sensible observations, prefatory to sundry ex
racts from and comments upon th. President's mes
age. Our cotemporary gives precisely our notion of
what a document of the kind ought to be. Thus
rites the Independent :
" The first annual message of President Pierce has.
nt reached us through the columns of the Charleston
:'ouricr. It is an admirable document, sensible, per
pienous, modest and temperate. Its style is rather
ingular, though we think it all the better for that.
t is hi-toricnl, not controversial, and is free from the
lightest shtade of partizan feeling. It seems to us an
mdignified impropriety in a President to intuse party
eeling and controversial argument into his message.
