SOULH CAROLINA RAILPOAD.
The annual report of the President of the
3outh Carolina Rail Road Company, dated Jan
iary 25, 1855, has been laid before the Stock
iolders. It exhibits a very satisfactory condition
)f the Company, and of the operations of the
Road-for the past year.
We make thg following extracts:
*Statement A shows the income for
the year from passage, freight,
mails, &c., to be.............1,363,008,i8
And the expenses of management,
ordinary and extraordinary, equal
to 42 12-100 per cent ........574,146,13

For the year to the credit of Surplus income,
being an excess of $99,298,18,100 over the bal.
ince carried from the legtimate business of the
year previous, wbich, upon reference, will be
een was $152,592,61,100.
* * * * * * *
The past year has been one full of causes cal.
:ulated to depress every business interest, and
to retard the general prosperity of the country.
lmmediately, thetjincome of the Company has
been much effected by the short crop of 1853,
nd the sudden appearance of the epidemie in
'his city about the opend.ng of our fall trade;
vet notwithstanding this unfavorable state of
ihings followed as it has been by the present
stringent condition of the monetary affiirs of
the commercial world, we have every reason to
be satisfied wi.h the income for the year, and to
:ongratulate ourselves upon havinag done as well
s we have under such adverse circumstances.
During the year, there has been added to the
improvement of the Road in the shape of turn
auts or doublo tracts, about rour miles; and
hirty miles of the road have been entirely re
built with new timber, chairs, and pikes; and
by the first of May, the bridge and trestle across
he Wateree swamp will be completed. All the
breaches in the Congaree embarkment but one,
iave been filled, and that is now being done.
The cost of this improvement, amounting to
ibout $75,000, it will be observed, has been
:harged as " Extraordiniary current expenses,'
md comes out of the income for the year.
The Trestling between Aiken and Graniteville,
.ve are now filling with earth, and the cost of
he work for the past year, amounting to
$18,477,06, has been charged to " Property in
road,' to which the original account for avoiding
the plane was previously carried. It 'will be
icessary to expend upon it this year about
D40,000, and the year following $22,000, mak .
*g the cost about $80,000, of putting that por.
on of the road in a permanent cundition.
During the present year it will be necessary
,o provide the line of Road with station houses,
lepots, wood sheds, additional turn outs, and to
mrove and enlarge at Charleston and Colunm.
ia especially, the accommodation for receivinag
Lad delivering freight, and for repairinug and pro
ecting our increased motive and car power.
L'e probable expense of which will be met by
ur surplus income without affecting the divi
lends or increasing the debt."
The following statement in reference to the
-esponsibility ot the Road, for daua:'ges and lost
~rtights, is of interest to our merchants, and t)
il who make use of that Road in the transpor
at ion of mereltandize.
"Our Western connections, we regret to say,
xre not as perlect as could be desired. The
ractice of receiving and forwarding goods, free
of charge, has caused %uch heavy losses as to
:ompel this Company to abandon it altogether.
Tue arrangement for the down freight is far
rom being sausfactory. For the p.st few years
he practice has been with this Company to pay
lor damaged and lost freight by the receipts oh
he other roads, but the heavy losses lately sus
ained by all the roads, in damages have deter
nined the connecting roads to terminate their
iability at Augusta-ai~which point the respon
ibility of this company commences. We are
oL however without hope that the interest of
he roads and oft the public, will iniduce a further
ffort to establish a more perfect and efficient
trrangement than has ever yet existed ; and no
:impany, and no portion of the public is prepar.
ed to sacrifice more for such a consuutmnation
han this Companiy.
MASUFACTURE OF RUrn.-Probab!y the only
manufacture in the Northern States which is~
sarried on profitably at the present time is that
a. rumn, itnd this was never before so profitable
is at the present tithe. Tue distilleries all
througha the country hamve orders for many wceeks
mtd months ahead, at, prices which yield thema a
'undred per cent profit. This state of thaings
as been occasioned by the prohibition of the
listillation bf grain in France and Belgium,
wich has caused hirge orders from those coon
ries for rum from the United 8tanes. Every
maket ship from New York for France and
3ermany now carries out all the rum which catn
me had iin the market as part of her cargo. The
rtile sells at 47 a 48 cents a gallon and the
roit may easily be calculated, whenct it is known:
tmt the moilasses cost but little mio:e than 20
ents a gallon, and oine hundred gallons of mo
asses wall make 95 galloats of ruin. A large
ortion of the molasses in the United Stateshs

hat period in our nation's history, when our New
Englanid brethren were so busily and profiably

niauactured rumn very profitably itndeed; for
ith it they purchased the negroes in Africa,
mid sold them in theo Soiuth for cash and molas

iquities which they ascribe to tae slave trade,
ut they were also guilty of the enormity of in

freatly to the debaesement of that poor,degraded

This was indeed a profitable period in the

A Rule without Exceptions !
ALL Persons who fail to settle their indebtedness

thorised. As a Co-partnership has been entered
into it is requisite that all out-standing debts should
be collected forthwith.
Ei Hon. P. S. Baooxs has our thanks fora paper
gT' WE are requested to state that the Rev. Dr.
BOYD, will preach in the Methodist Church in this
Village, on Friday night, 9th instant.
Death of James Griffin.
IT- becomes our melancholy duty to record the de
mise of another old and valued citizen of Edgefield
District. Mr. JAMES GRIFFIN, Senior, departed this
life, at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. D. F. HOL:
LINGSWORTII, in the vicinity of Edgefield village, on
the 3d instant.
The fat hers of the Districtare all fast passing away.
Another decade, and perhaps every cotemporary of the
fine old gentleman, whose death we are now noticing,
will have been numbered among the millions underthe
sod. He himpelf had lived to a good old age, having
well nigh reached his three score years and ten. With
a frame slight by nature and apparently frail, he had,
by habits of prudence and moderation in all things, at
tained a period of life far beyond the great majority of
men. But the slight cord of existence (slight indeed
when we come to look at the thousand trials to which
it is constantly subjected !) must break at last, for the
careful as well as the indiscreet. And our worthy
old fellow-citizen has but shared the common fate.
Consolatory indeed must it be to his relatives and
friends to call to mind the truth that he has sunk to his
grave in peace after a long life of probity and useful
In Mr. GRIFFIN's death, we have lost a most exem
plary citizen, one who had. the good of his District,
his State, his country warmly at heart. We hold up
his life, to those who are coming on to fill his place, as
a pattern worthy of imitation.
Death of Bishop Capers.
TuE papers annoutnce the death of this Christian
veteran, and most truly do they add that a " great
and good man has fallen in Israel." Nodivineofany
denominatian has ever commanded more universal
esteem in South Carolina. He was full of the milk
of human kindness, with an intellect of surprising
strength and an integrity that knew no warping.
GEOaE McDUFFIE once. said of him, that he was the
greatest pulpit orator of our country. And all con
ceded to him that purity and meekness which form
the distinguishing feature of a true disciple of Christ.
His brihit and intellectual eye spoke not more truly
of the mind within, than did his mildly-expressive face
reveal the true and trusting soul.
We first knew Bishop CAPERS in the South Caroli
na College, in 1835. He was propessor pro tem. just
previous to the re-organization of the College, which
took place in 1836. There was bin one feeling among
the young men in regard to him, a feeling of love and
reverential respect. We believe that such has-been
the experierce of every society or community into
which his lot has cast him. What more noble evi
dence of the " great and good man" can be aflorded
than this wide-spread array of heart-felt approbation!
There is one which it is not permitted to man to see.
It is the crown of immortal glory to be placed upon
his brow by the Great High Priest who sitteth upon
the right hand of Grid on high.
Browning & Leman.
Turs now famous Ctiarleston House offers to the
Southern trade the highest inducements in their line
of mercantile business. It is admitted to be the first
establishment of the kind in the Southern country.
For fullness and variety of assortments, fairness of
pricus &c., its proprietors have already established
their reputation upon a secure basis. All that is re
quired now to enable ur Charleston Merchants to af
ford a better market for Dry Goods than, New York it
self, is something like a general run of Southern cus
tom. The house of BRowNING & LEMAN, ranking,
as it undoubtedly does, best among the best, merits
especially the support of all good Southern Merchants.
And we commend their varied advertisement on an
other column to such of our readers as are interested
in mercantile matters.
WE observe that this Institution is now thoroughly
appointed ini every respect and ready for a large pa
tronage. Dr. CH A RLES S. GANTT, of Greenville, has
recently been elected to a professorship in place of
CustssiiNs, resigned. He is spoken of by the Rev.
JAxEs P. BorcE, in a letier to the Southern Baptist,
as a gentleman highly qnallified for the position. We
heard, in some way, that the College was not likely to
be so well filled thiis.year as it was in 1854. Our in
formiation was, in all probability, incorrect. At least
we hope so. From what we saw of the University
last Summer, we should say it was well-managed anid
worthy of a large support.
The Charleston M4ercury supplies a condensed ac
count of the claims now urged! before Congress, on the
score of these spoliations, which we adopt and copy
for the information of our readers:
"Ini the years 1798-9, the Uited States were in a
slate if qusi war with the iheni Republic of Fran~ce.
Privateers, cruised iand nade captures; natiri vessels
met anid fought on the high seas; and on land there
was the array of armies, in anticipation of a formida
ble war. T1hen came the revolution which placed
Bonaparte at the head of the French Government.
The United States urged upon France indemnity for
the confiscations of thet prei-ediing years. It was an.
swered that they were made under authority of a Go
vernmuenit that hadh passed away,* and like assignates
and cour inentat money, they had no more a vinte. In
short, the French Governmient refused in acknowledige
or satisfy these claims ; but as the urgency of them by
the United Siates was disagreeable, they had inserted
in the treaty, for the purchase of Louisiana, a provi
sion, that thiefuirthier prosecution of thiese clainms by our
Guverninetit should he discontinued.
"It is upon this provision that these claims wholly
rest. It is maintained that thie United States received
a consideration for their relinquishment, and thereby
aims.po themselves the obligation of satisfying the
It is needless to remind the political reader thiatthese
claims have been urged upoii Congress again and
again with unfavorable results. At length, there is a
strong probability of their heing satisfied in part. A
bill appropriatingflve millions to appease thes vulture
like rapacity of these claimants, has passed the Senate
Iand may soon pass the House. The Washington cor
respondent of the Charleston Standard thinks it will
pass that body by some twenty-five majority. " The
outside prestire in behalf of the measure," says lie,
" is very great. Any number of lady claimants, un
der the bill, are beseeching members to vote for it
and the money influence in its behalf is also plainly
seen to be at work in the lobby." Ladies and money ;
Both at work for the measure ! The thing is fixed as
suredly. Anid, just or unjust, let them have it. Dotbt.
less they need it. A few of them perhaps deserve it.
At all events we shall hear no more of French spolia
tiotns. Uncle Sam's money has to be spent one way
or another anyhow. Cormoriints must bitten on it.
Cram them well-stuff them to the full. Honesty is
but a jackass, to stand there braying out lessons of
justice and right at such a tirhme as this. 0! Mores !
Not Bad. t
The Corner Stone (Columbus, Ga.) saysa good many
original things fremn time to time, occasionally spicing
his views with a tiouchm of humor. Speaking of the
great probability of Kansas becomiing a slave State,
he thus essays 1o poitnt out one of the prominent rea
sons for her becominitg such:
" If these were flush and speculative times the Yan
kees would be flocvkinag there, building up paper cities,
paper Banks and paper Railroads, and the Southern
people womuld be going North to show off their finery,
and to be insulted by the negroes at the watering places.

' Faith and be jabers,' said Paddy, ' it is all that I can
do to stay where I am.' Those of them who have

run away from their debts they will leave their prop.

Give it to Him.
WE copy below, from the Evening News, a pretty
severe drubbing of ir. MORTIMER, present Proprietor
of the " Southern Quarterly Review." . This gentle
man, itseems, has thought good to tear away the
" Review" from her old, accustomod moorings in Char
leston, and to locate it anew in Baltimore. By the
way, has that $20,000 lottery ticket anything to do
with this business ? It look, a little queer that Mon.
TIMER should draw that ticket in Baltimore one week
and make known his inteition of removing the
"Southern Quarterly" to Baltimore the next. Of
course the " Review" ceased to be purely Southern,
and, for one, we are done With it. When we " go a
catting, we go a catting :" and, upon pretty much the
same principle, when we subscribe for a Southern
Review we want a Southern Review. But heed the
remarks of the Evening New.:
THE SoUTiERN QUARTEiLY REzvEw.-The Jan
uary. tumber of this periodical we have just received.
We observe, with surprise, that its publication has
been transferred to Baltimore. That swork so emi
nently Southern, begun in South Carolina, and sus
tained fur so many years by -the talent, learning, and
enthusiasm of the most eminent writers and politicians
of the State, should now be removed to the neutral
atmosphere of Mlaryland, is certainly to be deeply re
gretted. It was unfortunate that the'proprietorship of
the Review should have passed into the hands of a
man without capital, one, too, unidentified with us by
a single previous tie of interest or blood. It was still
further unfortunate that he should have undertaken a
business for which, it seems, he was no way qualified,
either by temper or experience. Unquestionably, his
management-or his want of management-has prov
ed most disastrous.
In nothing that we can discover have the interests
of the Review been advanced. Its pecuniary embar
rassments continue the same ; it has lost its distinctive
characteristic as an exponent of Southern sentiment,
ability, and influence, by being removed to an alien
soil on the very border.of the free States, and lastly,
Mr. Simms, the accomplished editor, whose signal
efrbot to sustain the work had won for him the highest
approbation of the public, has been compelled to aban
don his labors under circumstances di.creditable to
the judginentand good sense of the proprietor.
In consideration of all this, it cannot be expected
that we should notice the publication with favor. In
fact we look upon the Southern Review as dead.
The periodical that now goes under its name is a non
descript nurk, which we regard with distrust, and
shall not presume to commend to the patronage of the
All Amongst the Leaves.
As a good many of our yoting friends have probably
heard SLOMAN sing his famous " Derry, derry, down,"
we give them below a set of words, admirably adapt
ed to the same air, which we find in our musical port
folio. Although different from those usually sung by
SLOMAN, they are by no means without merit as a
comic song. There is another English " Derry down,"
very different from this one. The spirit and sprighth
ness of the verses we give chime in very handsomely
with the bold and careless character of the air for
which thry are intended. Try it.

terly of the cost of the war. The London
Times gives the total expenises for twelve
months at eighty millionq of~ dollars. For the

utless peace shatll be declatred. 'lThe catlculaition
is that at least one hundred millions will be

raised annually, as long as the war maiy last,

THE RusmN~ SEavtCE.-.Every recruit whto
is drafted itnto the Russiatn military service is
obliged to paiy two roubles, or about at dollar
and a hltfl towards a fund for retired soldiers
and invalids. This fund is distributed in grait
ities of from twenty to twenty-five rouble's
each to atid soldiers nnd invalids, upon their
withdrawal from service. Besides this, those

THE TESTIMONY OF AN EMKY.
WE extract from the Kansas Herald the fol
lowing remarks of Mr. . H. Howe, the leader
of an emigrant aid band that left Cleveland for
Kansas on the 28d of October last. Although
his exploration of the country was made at arn
unpropitious season of the year, his observations
have extorted from him the following testimony
as to the peculiar adaptation of the territory to
slave labor. Such a confession is not without
its significance. It should induce a free emigra
tion of slaveholders from the Southern States,
for not only are their principles, as Southern
men, involved in the settlement of this question,
but their interests, as individual, as agriculturists,
as capitalists. are also dependent upon the intro
duction of slavery into Kansas. Let us hope
that these views of an opponent of slavery, and
of an agent, of the system of forced emigration,
will not be without their effect in producing such
a consummation. The letter from which the
following extract is taken, bears date " Steamer
on missouri Rivor, (down,) November 19th,
- I made a very thorough xploration of the
quntry. It is one of vast and almost unbroken
prairie, almost destitute of timber-but the soil
is of the richest character. Water abundant,
and plenty of stone, with some evidence of coal.
" Time and money will enable men of the right
stamp to possess these lands, subdue and cultisate
them, and concert the countryinto a very garden-a
farming paradise. Men without means can do
nothing there at present. THE COUNT S is EMi

SLAVEHuLDERS CAN GO THERE wITH PLENTY OF

AND CULTIVATING THESE LANDS. .

to prevent it, KANSAS 18 SURE TO BECOME A
.Emigrant ArD Companies (as they are term.
ed) are doing very little indeed to accomplish
their object. They have encouraged hundreds
of pour well-meaniing and honest people to leave
their homer and rush into the Territory without
means to sustain themselves there, who must
suffer everything but death, and many of them
that, if they remain-gr leave the country, and
go where they can provide for their fitmiles."
A DUEL ; THE QUAKER CITY.-On Thurs
day afterno n, one of those ridiculous exhibi
tions styled, satirically, "a hostile meeting,"
took place between two young men of this city,
one a boarder at Jooe,' Hotel, and the o.her a
sojiaurner at the United States. We suppress
the name out of pity for the parties. The two
young geitlemen had a quarrel on Thursday
m'n.ring, in the course of which one of the
parties ea.led the other a "coward." Hereupon
the gentleman to whom the epithet was applied
felt ca.led upon to scnd a chal:eng i to " pistol
and cuffee." The challenge was accepted, and a
meeting was arraiged to take place somewhere
inl the vicinity of Girard College. But this was
considered dangerous ground, and the scene was
chaiged to a grove near Camden.
The seconds had resolved to treat the affair
as a joke, and the pistok were loaded according
ly, without any missile that could create a call
for tlesurgevon. The belligerants were escort
ed to the ground before meitioned, and the or
dinary preparations made for the fight, In the
meap1jime, tle young gentiemen who had appli
ed the epithet of coward, began to think the
afluir had gtn... jiit -fr enough, and, Acres-like
w.1s indi.-posed to " face the music." He was
seized n ith a .,hiver, and his courage left hiu at
every p"re. But the tremendoius words " one,"
-'two," were spoken; " three" was about to be
pronoiunced; when our trembling friend dropped
the pistol aid took to his heels. He never
stopped until he was safe on board the ferry
boat, and under thei protectiotn of the captain.

tory of Kansas; their ulterior aim to affect and
overthrow it, in the slave holding States; how
the interests of Missouri were involved, and con
eluded by urging the adoption of all justifiable
measures, to counteract the aggressive move
ments of the northern fanatis.
\Vhen Mt r. Routt concluded, the following pre
amble and resolutions were submitted by the
committee, and unanimously adopted:
WHEREAS, a spirit of hostility to the Southern
States, and especially to the institution of slave
ry as it exists in those States, has become so
pervading and intensified in many of the North
ern and Northeastern States as to threaten, if it
has not already caused, a disrupture of old party
organization. and to unite the opponents of sla
very of all classes and grades in a concentrated
effort throughout the non-slaveholding States to
organize in their stead a great Northern Aboli
tion party, under the captivating cognomen of
Republican, whose every principle is at war with
the constitutional rights and domestic institutions
of the Sonthern and slaveholding States; and,
whereas, inl thus abjuring all allegi-mtte to and
severing the ties which hitherto united them un
der other auspices, and reconstructing around
ratnk abolitionism as the nucleus, a great seltotn
al party, an exposition of whose creed is foun~d
itn its avowal to restore thte Alissouri restriction
to the T erritories of Kansas and Nebraska. the
atbrogation of the fugitive slave law, the restrie
tion of slavery by Congress, to the States in
which it exists, opptosition to the admission of
any more slave States; oppositi-n to 1he acqui
of any more territory, except upon the conuditionu
that slavery shall be forever prohtibited therein
we see an aggressive movemettt, which shtould
be met in a spirit, by citizens of'the slaveholdttmg
States overlooking all the minor obhtgatiots of
mere party tidelity ; antd, whereas, the e'natnmet
by Congress, at its last session, of laws for the
organization of the TIerrittories of Kantsas antd
Nebraska, etnbodyintg thte grea t principle of poptt
lar sovereignty and thte right tof self-governmtntt

Resolcred, That we regard the course of Abo
litionists antd Freesoilers in reference to the Ter
ritory of Kansas as at lawless cru.eade against
the institution of slavery as it now exists ttere;
and that their ulterior object is to overturn the
instiltution of slavery itt all the shaveholding
States. We, therefore pledge ourselves to de

A bolitionists and their etutissaries are at work;
