the tendency of too much electioneering is to beget
evil, let the observant man only watch the corrup
tion of the ballot-box in our larger cities.-and even
in Columbia and Charleston, where the contest for
office is keen, and the meanus of prostitut:ng the
privileges of the citizens are at hand and are'more
abundant, and let him see how bold can become the
self-abasement and degradation of iien, who boast
themselves Republicans and freemen, in as chi-al
rofis a State as South Carolina. Their votes are
actually, often bought and sold in broad-daylight,
and I learn, that they are sometimes positively penned
up like beasts -ind dumb cattle and feasted and
drenched with liquor, by some of the contending
champions of liberty, who on the day of the elee
tion, are to receive the united suffrages of this band
of freemen and unterrified Democracy. We our
selves have seen the like abroad, an4 I say, God in
his mercy forbid, that so wicked a practice should
extend to our people, and especially should pervade
the whule'eountry. If it should so extend itself, I

Whilst though, I would guard the freedom of

auspiciaus time for my aspirations after office. I was
elected to the Legislature not long after my return
from the war; and seeing that our brethren of the
North were' about to appropriate to themselves ex
clusively all the remuneration we had received for
the blood and treasure and lives, I saw lavished by
the united North and South, it is poss-.ble, that un
der excitement from so deep a provocation, my con
duct may have partaken of rashness for the moment,
and I nmy have given evidence or a violence of
-character, which actually did not, in general, belong
to me. I certainly do not regret the course I pur
sued, or retrict a principle I then avowed. We had
been wronged.beyond endurance. I had to seleet
my plan of conduct, and cleave to the safest plank I
could ind, in the midst of a violent tempest. It is
probable, that from the ardor of my - nature, future
commentators on my conduct wil: charge ime with
a readiness to leave the vessel before she was quite
in a s:nking mood, and I only w:sh that the times
had been a little nore quiet, so that nien could have
properly estimated the real metives that gove rned
me, and so that I could have clearly exhil.ited some
of the prudence as well as boldness of my nature.
I judge myself that I ai a con-wrvative in disposi
tion, and not ;nc!ited to make alterations in govern
mlent unttil they become inperiously necessary and
slenanded by the people, either to censerve their
rights, or to relieve their buidens. In my opanion,
that is the only safe rule to adopt.
But, as it was the- faishionl to plaeo-ne in thaeent
gory of Rcvolut:entists, I am fully conavinced that I
lost my last election, fromt havmng been miisjudgedl as
an advocate of the division of this DI)srit-a pro.
ject I could notgell espouse, and especially agitate.
ui-.it were iincontroveriible that a majority oef all
igl e,-dwere in favoer ot it, and hiad ai
plan ' og . well matured, and unless its
practicabil ty seemed probable,-anid then, unless its
benefits were made clear to my per ception. I have
a kind of patritec attaichment to the wvhole District;
and as a large District has mocre pewer thtan a smaIl
onle, if it only has the wisdomi to propterhy exercise
it, I coenfess that it wvould be with somec reluctance,
and some serioeus misgivings, that I 'coeuld looek en

its tractionis miade insto such potential Districts at
Lexingteon or Satxe Geotha.
No onie can fully co~nceive, with how much pure
<1elight, I woule imaintain and vinidicate the viewvs o1
the friends of my b. ehoodl, or with what paini it is,
that I ua compelled to differ with them in senitiment,
It is dlue to thema, though, that I sheeuld speak cut

If I should b:- so fortunate as to be again elected
I will strive, with all mcy might tee mnake the Distriec
and State. a useful member:; for I am atmbitiones, and
I love reputation, and I love my cotentry.
As our State is gettig along well aiid harmoni
ously at this juntcture, I will endeavor to preserve
her in the saume peaceful track. A nd as wee all scerr
to be prosperoeus and happy, I shall generally oppose
myself to all chainge, especiatlly to revolution, with
out a stringent cause, and unless it is made as clent
as sunlight, that such a chanige will rend~er the peo
ple more prosperous, mnore wealthy, more happy, and
mnore contented. Somec modification and reibrm ofi
the military system of the State mtighit be found' ex
pcdieiit and beneficial: but it is the course and prac
tice of wisdom never to make a radical alteration in
government until such nho~ratio:: bo"ome highly es
sential, and until tihe defects of the government be
come very ahparent, as weell as very grievous, and
actually insupportable to the people governed.

From early life she has been a devoted and a

She was a kind and afftetionateviother, a loving

The experience of a twelvemonth has fully satis
fled us that no miore competent young gentleman
an be found in the State than the oiie now at the
head of our Academy. The best proof of this ir
the general satisfnction given by him last year,
backed by the additional fact that his School, at the
termination uif its first week for the second year,
numbered 43 Pupils.
The Trustees desire to assure thle Public that
their united efl6rts will be given to the cause of
their School, and a continued and complete supervi

can then be well attended to.
The Building is in comfortable condition, having
three large fire-places (one in each of the larger
