A letter from Riga, dated the 1st ult.,says:
"The fears of a hostile visit from thge ships
f England and France, entertained by our gov
ernor, were so great as to induce him this sum
mer to have large quantities of stones sunk in
the channel to our harbor, so as to prevent the
entrance of at least the ships of the line. And,
indeed, this measure of precaution has been
executed with such success as entirely to im
pede the navigation. Now that the British
ships are withdrawn, several loaded merchant
vessels endeavored to leave the port, but the
obstructions were found to be insurmountable
and after several attempts to get out, the ships
were obliged to return to the port and discharge
their cargoes, some of them having suffered
considerably damage from bumping on these
artificial rocks, though the captains knew ex
.ctly were they were situated. The entrance
to our port may therefore be considered as
totally impervious to hostile ships of war, and
in the event of a peace, will require a vast
amount of labor combined with great expense
.0 clear away the obstructions, and restore
our harbor to the status quo ante bellum.
THE purchase of the Gallapapos Islands is
said to be a private speculation, and not a very
profitable one either, The story of the pur
hase by'our Government, for three millions
-f dollars, is doubtless coined to give conse
uence to the Islands, and help the purchasers
gut of their bargain. The country will be
etiered to learn that the Government is not
goig into the guano busIness.

To Me Patrons of the Advertiser.

iser since its commencement in 1836, to the present
time, and finds it neces-ary, for certain reasons, to call
in to his assistance, a younger and more eflicient man.
The business of the Ollice has been considerable for a
number of years past, and a large umount reinrin-1 un
settled on the books. Old a.coints for subscription,
advertising, &c., must positivrly be closed. His friends
and patrons must see this necessity; and it is earnestly
hoped that all indebted, will promptly and cheerfully
step forward and make full payment.
The Subscriber returns his heart-felt acknowledge
ments to his friends who have so generously patronized
him ; and promises that ie and his co-adjutor will
endeavor to do their duty to the utmost. They will
strive, if possible, to give more interest to the Adver
tiser, and they hope that it will lug continue to flour
He also is happy to say, that arrangements have
been made with the present Editor to continue his
services, as lie trusts, for years to come. It is not-at
all necessary to say anything of him, as he is well
known to the majority of the readersof this paper, and
has given proof of his fitness for the editorial chair.
W. F. DURISOE.
ir is but just to our establishment to say that for the
last few weeks we have been in an unsettled condi
tion. Several arrangements have been under consid.
eration bearing upon the futiare fate of the " Adver
liser." One after another has been entertained, can
vassed and rejected. At last, the following adjustment
has been'definitively adopted:
Mr. W. F. DuRIsoF (sometimes known as the " old
boss") and his son, Mr. D. IZOPER DCrirsoE (oirlhiti
erto skilful and always gentlemanly Foreman) are now
equally interested in the Proprietorship of the " Edge.
field Advcrtiser;"' while we, whose name has been
observable at the head of this editorial column for
some four years, still continue to act in the capacity
which is fast becoinirg a sort of second nature % iI
The accession of 31r. D. It. Dur.soE to the propri
etorship of this paper is one of the very best things
that could have happened for the' advancement of its
excellence and popularity. His worth of character ih
well known to this community; but his worth, as a
printer, is only well known to those who have been
connected with him in the business of a prining oflice.
In the future conduct of our paper, lie will he the act
ing and managing proprietor; and the reader nuy lool
upon this fact alone as a sure guarantee that the week
I ly visits of the " Adertiser" will grow more and mor
acceptable. But we all feet like doing orir prettiest
from imp to Editor; and so, n ith the hope that a legior
of subscribers may come into our fold during thisgoor

WRLL some one be kindl enioughr to inform us as to
the cause of certain apprehensions whrichr have been
expressed in this District, and, we believe, acted upon
in the city of Augusta, in regardl to thre condition of

was generally thought, from the chraracter of its stock
holders andl the well known ability of its financial
head, that thre Newberg~y Bank would at leasrtitand its
hand, through thick antI thin, with any or all of our
more youthful banks. But, to our surprise, a clamor
has been raised against it, first of ai. U'ntil somethirn
more condemnatory, than is at piresent known, shall
appear, we must insist that this clamor is nts unjust as
it is unfounoed. And we trust our editorial brethren
of Newberry will at once make its absurdity apparent.
We should take pleasure in giving circulation to any
d efence of this Inrstitution threy may think proper to
P. S.-Since the above was in the printer's drawer,
ve have breen shown a full statement, direct from the
hands of Mr. Bova (President of the Newberry Bank,)
to tie eff'ect that iris Bank hits nnt been in better con
dition since its establishment titan at present. His
exhibit, which now lies before us, makes aclearshow

plication of the Bank in Chrarleston failures, is em.
phatic. "By the failires in Charleston," says he,
""we expect to lose but little if anry tiring ; and did we
otre extent of our holdings, it would riot affect our
Edgefield & Cheatham Plank Road.
Fott the first time since its completion, we travelled
last week over this road; and we take the earliest op
portunity to say a word or two in regard to it. That
it is one of the very best built plank roads in the whole
country, cannot be denied. This opinion has been
given by more than one person of experience in scuh
matters. For ourself, being a stockholder and of
course very observantof its meritsor demerits through
out its entire length, we were more than satisfied in
passing and repassing on it the other day. It has the
appearance in every respect of being well located,
well finished and durable. To our fellow-citizens on
thatside of the district, it is a work of great usefulness;
and as the common expression goes, they stand migh
tily in their own light when they fail to foster and sup.
port it. with all their patronage on every occasion that
presents itself. Thus fostered, thus supported, the
company will do at least a safe business, the road be
kept in fine repair nnd its many advantages come to
be more and mOTre appreciated by those who shall fiul
ly test then. Unpatronised, unsupported, the compa
tiv iay become disheartened, the work be eventually
th1rown aside and these advantages lost forever to the
Western side of Edgefield. We call upon all citizens
in that part of our Distit to cast in their mite towards
the support of this road, every time (without exception)
they come this way. The dirt road may look good
enough a portion of every season. This winter being
ar. unusually dry one, it is manifestly in fine order.
Nevertheless we entreat you, ntow as at aU times, take
the plank road. Remember how nearly impassible
your dirt road almost always beccmes in wet weather.
Call to mind how valuable you will then hold this
plank road to be. Reflect upon the wear and tear it
saves you even when the other road is in its best plight.
Ponder upon the general, diversified, constantly recur.
ring, steadily continued facilities of a well-kept Plank
road ; and so act that the present company may pros.
per and your own best interests be essentially promo.
ted. The " Dark Corner," despite its shady name,
has been long considered one of the most enlightened
portions of Edgefield. Ilide not your light under a
bushel now. Stand square up to this work ofpublic im
provement. and shov yourselves to be the enlightened
people you have always been esteemed. Or else, let
it rot by your parsimony, and be the Dark Corner in
A Good Sign.
Although it would seem, from the universal com
plaint of the country, that there was scarcely ever a
tighter season as to money matters than the present,
yet we declare our opinion (as we have done before)
that al I of us are worse scared than hurt. This opinion
we b'ase upon several facts, one of which happens to
come within our own immediate knowledge. There
is now due, in the Conmissioner's office for Edgefield
District, considerably over one hundred thousand dol
lars, and with the exception of some half dozen cases,
no instruc:ions have been given to the olicerby parties
at interest to do more than urge immediate payment.
Does no: this show that, so far as Edgefield is con
cerned, men are disposed to weather out the present
pressure in a spirit of generous forbearance 1 We hail
it as a noble indication of the good feeling rnd wisdom
of our community-of good feeling, because it is kind
and Christian-like to be lenient under such circum
stances-of wisdom, because the aggregate interests
of our District n% ill.be best subserved by such a course.
Cotton may rise in it short time-the crops of our
farmers will then pour into market-money will be
made plenty, and all be well. So mote it be.'

Benefits of Advertising.
No man is more competent to give an opi:uion on thi
benefits of advertising thtan P. T. BARnnSt. In hit
Sautobiography, lhe gives rules for success in business
and among them, as of primary importance, lie placet
tLdvertising-not mere occasional advertising, but ad.
svertising upon a liberal and systematic scale. He says
"Adivertise your tiusiness. Do not hide your ligh
Sunider a bushel. Whatever your occupation or callinl
ny be, if it needs supplort from the public, advertist
it thiorouighly and etieiently. I freely confess rha
fwhat stuccess I have had in my life may fairly be at
tributed more to the public press tihan to nearly al
other causes comhined. There may possibly be occu
pations that do niot require adivertising, but I cannoi
well conceive what they are. Men in business wil
somteties tell you that they have tried advertising
that it did not pay. This is only when advertis~
duone sparingly anti grtigingly. Hormpathic do
adivertising will no~t pay perhaps-it is like half a
tion of physic making the patient sick, but effecting
noithting. Administer liberaily and the cure will he
sure and permanent. Some say 'they cannot afford
to ativertise ;' they mnistake-t hey cannot afford riot a
advertise. In this counitry, where everybody readt
the newspapers, the man must have a thick skull wh<
dues not see that these are the cheapest and best medi
umas through wvhich lie can speak to the pttblic, where
lie is to findl customers. Put on the apparance of bu.
Isiness antd generally the reality will follow. The far.
mer pilanits his seed, and while lie is sleeping, his core
anti potatoes aire growing. So with advertising. While
you are sleeping, or eating, or coniversing with one set
tf customers, your advertisement is being read by
hundreds andi thousands of persons who never saw
you or heard of your tbusiness, and never would, had
it tnt been for your advertisenient appearing so the

& Sheldon, banikers, of New York, hars suspend.
etd. The.y were the agents of the State of Illii.
tiois, and consequently no payment was made on
Tttesdayv of interest on the bonds of thatt State.
A telegratphtie despattcht says:
Mlesrs. War~dswtorthi & Shelon's liabilities
amiotunt to $2,000,000, but they show resources
largely above their liabilities, and there is reason
to hope that thteir suspension will be merely
ttemporary. Arraingements are in progress which
will protb'y result in making provisioti for the
paymeiint of the interest oti the Illitnois bonds in
a few dayts. The suspension hats been caused
by at failure to receIve expected retnittances.
'Te telegraph also announces lthe failure of
Messrs. Belchier & Co., stigar refiners, of St.
Louis. Their liatbilitics are said to be $2,000,.

The failtire of the bankitng house of Gen.
Laritmer, of Pittsburg, Pat., is reported.
rTE MMALS.-A gleam of sunshine, we are
hiappy to sta-te, has just appeared, which, in all
probability, wi'l dispel the fog in which the mail
facilities of this portiotn of our State lias for the
last few datys been enveloped. An offer made
by the Post Oflice Department to pay 8237,50
per mile for a double daily tail service between
Kingsville aind Augutsta atnd Charleston and
Kitttsville, and $100 per tmile for a single daily
servifce between Kintrsville and Columbia, has
been, we learn, accepsted by the South Carolina
Railroad Company, provided the schedules re
qtiired are not incomnpatible with the business
of the road. The otnly difficulty now in the way
of a speedy termination of the present unfortu
nate statte of affairs is, therefore, as to what
schedules shall be adopted; and wve sincerely
trust that, as thero aippears to be a conciliatory
disposition evinced on both sides-the Post-.
master Geiteral only, as we learn, requirtng such
schedules as shall preserve proper connections

those mail fatcilities of which they should never
have been deprived.-Charleston Courier.
RAILnOAD DAMAG ES.-A man named Croeker,
who was forced out of a car of the New Lon
don Railroad Company, because he refused to
pay an aditonal fare of five cents demanded
bythte conductor, whereby his knee pran was
broken, and othier injuries received, has been
awarded $8,200 damnages by the Court before

GEORGIA GOLD MINE.
WAsHIGTON, Dec. bOth, 1854.
MR. EDITOR:-One of the richest gold veins
in the South was discovered a few days ago by
a Mr. Jas. Brown, in Hurt county, on his own
land. It is in micaceous slate, about five feet
wide, and the ore I saW washed out.yielded $10
per bushel, and some parts of the vein give
from $20 to 850. The developments as yet are
very superficial, and only at two points; but If
it prove extensive of like quality, it -will eclipse
the celebrated Dorn Mine in Soluth Carolina,
which has produced in the last two years over
$400,000. It appears to be a specal God-send,
for no worthier man and wife live any where,
and they have now living twelce sons and eight
daughters, one having died, making her the moth
er of twenty one children, which she has raised
to be respectable and an honor to the country!
Such a mother certainly deserves Epension from
Government, and under Roman or Spartan rule
would receive it.
A AFFRA.-A very serious affray occurred
at the house of Thomas Murphy,'ih the corner
of Unity Alley and State-street, on New Year's
day. A man named McLoughlin;- and another,
became engaged in a controversy, -when -Murphy
interfered to prevent disturbance: -He was 1n.
successful, and starting for the gard, was fol
lowed by McLoughlin and stabbetin the abdo
men with a large nife. McLougHlin is charged
with the act, and has been lodged iti jail to await
the result. Murphy is in an exceedingly crit.ical
condition. In the absence of tife police, Chas.
M. Farrally, whom, under the soubriquet of
Handsome Charley, we have oeenionally men
tion, happened to be passing, and- taking upon
himself the responsibility of the arrest, bore the
prisoner off to jail.-Charleston Standard.
THE New-York papers record the suicide of
John Murphy, an Englishman, recently arrived
in this country, who had becomT deranged by
the want of employment, and the consequent
sufferinr- of his family. His family had been
without ood for two days, when the wife yield
ed to I - necessities, and went to the Commiute
of Rcloa for the Poor, to obtain some assis
tance. In her absence, the husband cut his
throat, and during the inquest upon the father,
the mother received news of the death of her
child from want of food. The case has excited
the sympathies of the citizens, -and doubtless
the remainder of the family will be taken care

son of the late Mr. Jefferson Richardson, in the
25th year of his age.
The writer of this notice was mneh with the de
Ceased during the two weeks immediately preceding
his death, and feels himself authorized to comfort
his bereaved relatives with the assurance that, from
his deep contrition, earnest prayers for mercy, and
all-absorbing attention to his spiritual and eternal
interest, coupled with the freeness and fulness of
God's mercy through Christ, they are privileged to
hope that he sleeps in Jesus, and that therefore
" when Christ, our life, shall appear, then shall he
also appear with him in glory." E. E. B.
DIED, in Aiken, of consumption, on the 26th Nov.
1854,' Dr. Joszrn A. A nDIsON, of this District. le
was a son of the late Allen B. Addison, well known
an one of the earliest and most worthy residents of
Edgefield village. The noble social qualities of the
deceased, his candor, generosity, warmth of tent
perament and Aindness of heart had attached to
him a large circle of relatives and friends. By his
untimely fall, a young and affectionate wife has been
made to mourn, and an interesting little boy-ias been
left fatherle.ss. But the support of the one is the
right arm of nli who has promised to be a father
to the fatherless, and the consolation of the other is
to be found in the blessed Word which has vouch
safed to the just a day of resurrection and reunion.
That our friend had his frailties (who has noot?) the
writer seeks not to deny. But that lie had his vir.
tues too, all who know him will cordially testify.
Yet it is not for man to ca!euhate the hopes of an
immortal spirit beyond the grave.
"No longer seek his merits to disclose,
Or draw his frailties from their dread abode
There they alike in trembling hope repose.
The bosom of his Father and his Godt !'"

cember last, Mr. Jos.eru D. A LL.S, son of the late
Mal. .1. C. Allen.
The deceased was in early youth, having not yet
attained his 2.th year. The disense was Typhoid
fever, which had been so flial iq;c fanily of hi

the subject of this notice had established for hin
