EDGEFIELD, S. C. it
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 4, 1854.
T 'uFm last two days have been the busiest we
har had in a twelve-month, and we have conse
quently given place to communications and other
satter with peculiar satisfaction.
ATE, a dun! Its the very season for it. Every s
body else is dunning, and why may not we? Our
subscribers need but a hint. We think there are no
better nor more punctual newspaper subscribers in
the State than ours. A few sad exceptions there are
of course. We scarcely ever heard of a flock that
had not some black sheep among them. So it is with
our flock. But we have topes of the very worst of
them yet. Now then, dear subscribers, is the time
we particularly need funds. Cull in and settle. Wi~e
know you will.

Carrier is from the pen of Mr. Jons A. CuArMs of

respected correspondent "Satu,la" without agreeing

any one who may desire to take up the cudgels. The
chance is good for a pretty little fight-a paper fight

negroes to have been carefully raised and well trained.
They are nearly all of them family negroes of excel

likely. It will be a great opportunity for investments
in this species of property.
We are requested to state that there is a mistake in
the published hand-hills of this Sale. The terms
should have been as they are in this number of our
paper " credit until the 1st January next, with inter

his property in this District. That it will he a certain
sale there cannot be a doubt, as the Colonel (mnuch to

" The !'ate of the Administration."
Stxii is the caption of an article fro the "CottIon U

i is a tisatue of groiitilless assintnpmiiits andu ahsuird T
preictions'. It is a mtost iniserabile effort to produce ,g
i: the pulic rni feelings of contempt for the pre- r,
sent Admititration. Its pomaprus ipse-ditrits are inter- t
spersed with such extreme assertions as the-se: "The i

suiers," and that very soon the de-sertion wiill lbe et
complete. In fill view of the certamtty that the Adi
ministration has strong, powerful anid energetic sup. th
porters in all parts of the Union, this sentiinias
wiveacre proc-taims thatt it is shortly to he left alonte in ei
its gloy. We will not allude to his prophecy for 'SG
my further thatn to say, that we prefer applying toC
ie Spirittal Rappers for light upon the probable i
vents of that period. oi
Th'le Cotton Plantl is uistually conduicted well, biut th

nd deliver it much nearer to the Depot of the Au

:oint it will ultimately find its way. The one mil
inn of dollars yet to be procured (if they be procured
it a!l) will be obtained solely with the view, and
ruin among a claps that will effect this end. It is
seless for us to close our eyes to this fact. Wit
ness the developments that have already been made
upon this point and deny if you can, that our con
:lusions are not manifest and undeniable. Already
have the corporate authorities of Augusta, intere-t
ed that City in this euterprise by an important sub
scription to its Capital Stock ; and already is her
press congratulating itself upon the benefits that
will result to her citizens from the building of this
road. It is true, that a leading and intelligent mem
ber of her Council in a Resolution offered by him
denied the power of that Corporation to subscribe
funds in aid of a Rail Road, " neither terminus of
which was to be located within the Corporate lim
its of the City," but the right was affirmed aa the
proposition carried, by a vote of 6 to 3 ; and sub
Maquently, when another member sought to obtain
an expression of opinion from the citizens upon the
propriety of this movement, the proposition was
loust by the casting vote of the Mayor. The move
ment. of these gentlemen were doubtless ad cap
tandurn. and intended merely to feel the public
pulse ; while the Mayor being one of the initiated,
was fully aware that all obstacles will ho removed,
and every objection.ovrcime. A nd here it may
be proper to mention, as forming a curious and in
teret .ag commentary upon the history of these
proceedings, the fact that the deliberations of the
Council con this subject were, on moti'on of a mem
ber, held with closed doors! 1.4 not this a faet as
signifie.nt as it is ominous ? t es it not prove. that
movenents are on foot with which the public are
unacquainted, and wh:ch require secrecy for their
suce.-ss ? There is but little doubt. that A ngusta
will become interested in this Road to the amount
of three hundred thousand dollars; and Savannah
to a corresponding or greater extent. Are not these
significant indications of the designs of thyse p.,
ple ? Are they not ominous forebodings of evil to
our State, her ntropoalis, and her favorite enter
ptise ?-both of which are at once, the (objects of
her pride and her boast.
But, .r. Editor, is additional evidence of the
hostility to our State and her interests on the part
of this Company wanted ? If so, it is to be found
in the selection of its I'resident and his known op
position to Charleston and to the South Carolina
Rail Road. It may be true, that your correspon
dent is better informed upon this subject than are a
majority of your numerous readers ; and if no, an
imperative sense of duty prompts hiit to the diselo
sare. The acts of a public man form a portion of
the history of the age in which he lives, and as
such are the fair and h'gitimate sui jests of public
criticism. llIaKau lieceroN is now a publie man
and his char.tcter and conduct, his motives'aud de
igns, are of course, subject to this ordeal. Upon
this subject, however, we are admonished to be
courteous and rerpeetful. A just .*nse of proprie
ty oin our hart, as well as a proper digrec of respect
for the feelings of others, alike dictate thtis course.
Anzd we must be permitted also. utterly to disclaim
any iintentional di'resp'ect to Mir. Ilerennox: For
it is with the public ntan ratther thtan the private
citizen, the President otf a Company, and not .Mr.
IL'iiiSON, that we intend to deal. Besideai, htis
mnotives and designs form a pronminlent place in the
picture, anid are the mnost salie-nt points oif this en
