SUCCESSORS OF THE EMPEROR.
The question :is to who will be the successor
of the Emperor Nicholbs, snpposing him to be
really dead, hinges on the fact that the Russian
law provides that the oldest son of the reigning
monarch shall be his succestor. Alexander, the
oldest son of Nicholas, was born before his fath
er came to his throne, and the friends of Con
stantine contend that he, having been born
"under the purple," is properly entitled to the
crown. The distinction appears to be more
technical than real, though its decision may give
to Russia aisher futture Emperor, Alexander,
who is understood to be a pacific disposition,
or Constantine. who inherits both the military
habits and the ambitious views of his father.
If there really be this clashing of claims between
Alexander aid Constantine, it may possibly ex
plain the unusual haste with which the death of
Nicholas was made public. Constantine being
in the Crimea, and Alexander at St. Petersburg,
it would be a matter of policy with-the latter to
make known the death of his father, and to pro
cure his own immediate recognition as Emperor.
Constantine is known to be very ambitious, and
many anecdotes are current which indicate his
thirst for empire. He opposes the law of prim
ogeniture, and declares: hat the throna is the birth
right not of the oldest, but of the most worthy.
One of his confidants once surprised him in the
act of drawing lines on a map, and inquired what
he was doing? "Marking the boundaries of
my future empire," said he; " this," pointing to
the North, "is for my brother, and this" (the
South) "is mine." His name also, with the
fatalism common in Russia. he believes fore
shadows his destiny as the conqueror and ruler
of Constantinople. He has made Turkish his
tory, literature and politics his special study,
and is thoroughly acquainted with the habits
and charaiteristics of its people. ie is emphati
cally the leader of the Russian party, and if lie
succeed to the throne will abate no part of the
obstinacy or perseverance with which his father
has pursued the policy that Peter the Great
committed to his successors. Rumor also as
<erts that there is on file in the archives of the
Russian Senate a document similar to that
which gtve the crown to his fattier, by the re
nunciation of it by an elder brother.-Baltimore
DEATH OF THE HON. JAMES S. RHETT.
Died vestcrday, at 12 o'clock, the lion. James
Smith lnett, in' the tifty-eighth year of his age.
His funeral will take place at 4 o'clock this af
ternoo:i, at St. Philip's Church.
Mr. Rhett was about the city, attending to
his business in court, cheerful and well, on Fri.
day last. In the night following lie was stricken
with paralysis, and the attack was so violent
that, though he was visited with intervals of sen
sibility and seeming relief that gave hopes to
his friends, his physicians from the first pro.
non(ltced his case desperate. The functions of
life gratdually yielded one after another to the
power uf- the dlisease, tand he lapsed insensibly
into thte last sleep, which is death.
Mr. Rhett has long filled an honorable place
itn this c~omnmunity. Durintg his many years ser
vice in the Staie Senate, he was among the
most patriolti. faithful and influential members
of that body. As a member of the bar he held
l.igh rank,' both for ability antd fair dealing.
lie was in his profession, as in private life, a
gentlema~n. But his best and most shitning
quatlities appeared in social life. Never was
there a more genial man, or one who had a bet
ter taculty of difftusing thte warmth antd light of
a cheerful nature over the circle of htis friends.
And all this is ntow quenched, as it were a
fl.ane put out by a blast, atnd those who a few
days ago felt cheered by his very presence, are
enlletd upon to gather sorrowfully arounid htis
cold claty, and give up forever to God that cheer
ful, truthful and friendly spirit, whose track hais
beeni marked through life by so many endcarintg
asociations.-Charleston Mercury, 23d inls?.

QUEENx YICToRTA's ISA NIT.-The Washing
totn correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot, in a
letter of Friday, alludes to this report. i~e
Affairs in England seem to be in a worse con
dition than they have been in for centuries past;
and to add to her trotubles, I seec it stated that
fears tire entertained that the Queen is laboring
under the htereditary disease of insanity. I sin
cerely hope and trujst that this may be a slander
of the opposition. Shto is anxious to do right
if her ministers would let hier, anid I entertain a
high opinion of the conservative principles of
her consort, if his advice could prevail there
would be a speed~y peace, and it might be accom
plished niow, if Nicholas be dead, without loss
of honor; for England might say, we warred
agatinst him believing him to be ambitious of
extending his territorial limits; we are willing
to be ott terms of amity with his successor tuntil
we see sonme evidence of his being actuated by
the same spirit of aggrandizement. At all
events, whether successful or not, England
muighit consistently and honorably make the pro.
position. But would Ahexatider II entertain it.
He knows better than his father did the strength
of his armies in the Crimea, and the weakness
of his adversaries. Will he forego the glory he
might win by driving them from his territory?
Whoscan say ? There ts another consideration;
should England be willing fo entertaini this, pro.
posit ionc would France consent to it? I fear

WrTus the last few days the thermometer in this
latitude has gone down 35 degrees again, and early
vegetation is much nipped. Serious apprehensions
are entertained that the fruit crop in this vicinity is
materially injured. Garden vegetables have s l'ered
especially. We have heard of no wheat sufficiently
advanced to be affected by frost, but suppose if there
was any that it will soon look rather chop-fallen.
The abominable spell was introduced by a slight
snow storm which contrary to all precedent cleared
off cold. We had thought that winter was fairly gone
and in company with a majority of our brethrrn- of
the press had sounded his requiem, when here lie came
again hopping along on his crusty old shoes and trod
on our cabbage beds with a vengeance.
IT delights us to hear from various sources that our
old and valued friend, Col. Louis T. WIGFALL, for
merly of this village, is taking high rank both as a
lawyer and a politician in the State of Texas. This is
no more than what we all along expected with un
wavering confidence, knowing as we did the uncom
mon strength of intellect and force of character which
marked him from boyhood up. By Texas papers re
ceutly received, we learn that hre is beginning to mix
more freely in the pulitical affairs of the State of his
adoption. For no one on earth have we ready a more
hearty "God speed" thatn fir Loots TraEzEvANT

Os Saturday last the winds were up antd the fires

quite a display in this line in our inmmediate vicinity.
The woods wvere in a light blaze i n two sides of our

Turts fact is as yet uncontradico ; although some
ar still of the opinion that it is at least a premature
announcement. Yet quite as mutch ink arnd paper have
been exhausted in commenting upon the event and
i:s probable consequences, as though he were douhly
dead. One set is of the opinion that It wvill materially
affect thle position of Eastern affairs. Another says
this can scarcely be, as NxssEr.oRnc, the great coun
sellor, is still alive and at the helm, while the identi
cal generals yet have charge of the army. At any
rate, cotton has gone up a fraction, and the anti-Rus
sian world generally seems to he much cheered up.
We hardly know whether to be glad or sorry. We
want cotton to go op of courrse ; hut, on the oti er
hand, we want to see England arid France whlipped :e
little worse before our war ns ith them begiins.

unagricultural nuddle, that when there is a very
bad stand (from arty cause) the surest way is to plow
up and plant over again. But we arc erhaps wrong.

A "FLASH IN THE PAN."
TE lately-threatened intvnsion of Cuba, by an
army of fifteen thousand men under General QeITMAN,
has trrned out to be a perfect flash in the pan. After
all that was said about the splendor of the hero's
military genius, the magnificence of the enterprise and
the ripeness of the occasion, the sword that gleamned
so brightly about the gates of Mexico stilt slumbers in
its scabbard, and the army, that was to have followed
it as an oriflamme of victory, is simply niocre. We
had so oftent heard inutendoes and read on-dits hinting
at something mysteriously grand which was to be the
end of all this QurvTxAN and Cuba talk, that we were
realy unprepared for stuch an insignificant denoue
ment. How do you explain it, gentlemen fillibusters 1

DEATH OF ZEBULON RUDULPH, Sr.
WE see the death of this old citizen of our District
recorded in the Western papers. He expired, aged
86 years, at is home in Alabama, to which State he
removed in his declining dlays.
Mr. RUDULPH was for many years a useful and
highly respected South Carolinian. Friends in Edge'
field, and elsewhere throughout the State, recall his
name and character with reverence and esteem. A
high-toned ma'n and a zealous Christian, he scorned
what was low or disreputable, whether in his domes
tic walk or in his intercourse with the world around
him. Although no aspirant for public distinction, he
yet manifested the deepest interest of an enlightened
freeman in every thing appertaining to the werl of
his country, and especially of South Carolina. In
1832 we think it was, when the largest political meet
ing ever held in the District, assembled at the Court
I-louse to confer upon measures of redress'against
Federal oppression, a man was looked for to preside
over the vast and excited assemblage, and ZEDULOs
RUDUt.ri was selected. Ife was then sixty-four. but
still burning with all the fire of forty. This was no
ordinary compliment; fur it was no ordinary cecasion,
neither was it by any means an ordinary meet-ng. It
was a meeting of indignant freemen, resolved upon
vindicating their rights by the sword if need there
should be; and its presiding officer was selected with
a view to the dignity of his character and the pitch
of his politics. Edgefield's conduct in '33 was the
fruit, in great part, of that very day'. proceedings.
We have said Z.BULON RUDULPH was one wh
scorned a mean thing. As evidence of this, we
will repeat a single circumstence of which we were
personally cognisant: When it was first mooted,
years ago, that Marshal NEy and MrcuA EL RUDULPM
were identical, we happened one day at ZEULON
RUDUtLrt's house. The conversation turned Opon
this topic. MICHAEL RUDULP was Z uitr.o.'
brother. Our old frier:d very warmly discaimed all
manner of belief in the story tntil it should be clearly
proven ; and this,' for the reason that it exposed hi!
brother's reputation to the charge of having deserted
forever his wife and children in America. " I don't
believe," added he, " my brother M cHtAv.Lcould have
been guilty of such a thing. And if ie was, I shoultd
never acknowledge him even with the glories of a NEY
cast around his baseness." There spoke a good man
and a true; and such a man was the subject of out
SERENADING THE JUDGE.
We went out (some dozen good fellows) on Thurs.
day night last, to serenade our glorious old Senator,
Judge BUTLER, as a passing compliment upon his
return to Stonelands. The night was a little cold, but
otherwise all that we could desire; and the whole
party were in fine mood for doing the handsome thing.
Within a hundred yards of the house we halted te
prepare our lanterns, instruments, notes, &c. The
consequence was some little unavoidable noise. With.
out observing it, we had ap: roached much nearer the
Judge's office, in which he sleeps, than we reckoned
upon. The commotion tn our ranks, it seems, aroused
him out of a good old-fashioned country nap. And
his stern demand of" Whogoes there," had justabout
enough if the military in it to make our leader deem
it advisable to respond immediately. In reply to the
accord which we at once sounded, the old man's voice
was on a different key altoether. It told of the hos
pitable breast whence it proceeded. He saw our object
in a twinkling, and his hearty " Come along up, boys,
come along up," called forth a burst of melody which
only such genial tones can elicit. After-that, all was
right. Old "Stonelands" was made to ring again
with music, while its dist'nguished master, " accou
tred as he was" in dressing gown and boots, came out
in person and " bade us follow." So indeed we did ;
and (blame us not for rehearsing it, Sons of Tempe
rance !) the " Mountain Dew" which then and there
we tasted was of that old and oily kind which even
you might have excused as a cordial. But we cannot
further speak of the private hospitality here an nobly
displayed. On the part of the band, we would ex
press to the Judge their heart-felt gratification with
all that transpired on the or'casion. Our common
prayer is, that many years of his iseful life may yet
be spared to the country.
WHAT'S BECOME OF THlE GRAY
LAst fall, all the invalids in thtis vicinity were ex
tolling the Gray Sulpur water otf Edgefield to the skies
for its remarkably sanative properties. Everybody
and everything seemed to be astir Ott the subject for a
w eek, or a week and a half, or two weeks, or twe
weeks and a half, otr even ihree weeks. Since then,
the Gray Sulphuir Springs have been dropped entirely.
But this we suppose was because winter came on,
when p -ople did not need mineral waters. Now that
the Spring season is approachting with its heartburnt
and indtigestions (to be followved tip by the summet
with its fevers andI agues,) we shall expect to see our
mineral waters again brought into repte. As we at
last have a daily line of stages runining by us, on one
of the most direct routes between the upper and the
lower country, who knows but that strangers may hi
induced to soutrn and try our mineral spring!? Andi
thu stoppinig of one may induce the stopping of anothfr.
And thte healing oif two may lend to the healing ol
many. And the healing of manty tmay give our little
mineral spring 'eclat.' And the whole thing may re~
sut ini giving our town a good eatl miore conmpany,
and consequent chiertulness, thtan usually falls to itt
lot. Wouldl it not be well, in this view of the cause,
to have the spring and the spring grounds all refizedl
and rearranged in good time. Havinig donte this, out
hoelkeepers might advertise in the Chatlestun, Au
gusta and Savannah papers that they are reatdy t'
receive visitors, that the village of E Igefield is as
hetlhy as the mountains, and that (last but not least)
hre is a minerat spring hard by to wich every
one is entitled to go and drink freely. Hlas nobody
about Edgefield village a spark of P'. T. BAaSUM 's
mettle in his composition!?

THlE LAST FROM THE RABUN GAP.
Mr. GoUlR DIN still refuses to pay a cent to the stub'
contractors, and matters on the Itabun Gap line of
Railroad operations continue in a very disagreeable
posture. Probably there will be a lawsuit before the
dificulty is determined, and this, we fear, may occa
sion consiiderable unnec essary delay in the prosecution
of thte work. But we have thet opinion of several gen.
tlemen in that quarter that the building of the road ii
placed beyond contingency, and that its completion
cainot be easily post ptoned.
"iHOW ARE YOU OFF FOR GREENS1"t
Tiusexclaimed an urchin at our gale the other
day, whlo had come to "tborrow a mess." We told
him to go intio the garden, and the turnip patch, anti
every where else he thought advisable, and rake all
h saw. If Ito got his mess, it's more thtan we thought
at the time. But if lie had said " How are you ofi
fr chickens 1" we should have been still worse stuck.
And still worser, if turkeys had been the subject of
nquiry. Nobody seems to remember that we are an
editor this year. Hard luck !
More Breakers Ahead.
MANs' persons, and among the rest such clever gen.

A MoNG the newly arrived ' artistes' in vogue among

VESTVAL.L, who seems to be quite a favorite. Un.
like the " stars" in general, she comes down to earth
occa.sionally and mixes with mortals after a sort of
mormai fashion. That is to say she "goes ont" ad
takes tea occasionally, and permits herself known
otherwise than across the foot-lights and over the
heads of an orchestra. Conseusiently, she is wonder.
fully popular. And she appears to be supporting her
popularity, not only by remarkable excellence in her
art, but by a course of conduct highly characteristic
of a pure and elevated woman. Her pay is about
eight hundred dollars per month, pretty good wages
for these tight times! She was a pupil Of AERCA
DA NTE's, and is a native of Poland. In her own coun
try her name was WzSTWALLIVZEZ; but an Italian
pupilage has changed it into the somewhat more pro
nounceablo one above given.
"OLD DOG TRAY."
Teis is a very pretty song, with a chorus which
admits of being arranged into an excellent Quartette.
We append the words for the benefit of such of our
young friends as "don't know the tune but can't re
mem'er the words."
" The morn of lire is past,
And evening comes at last,

A bill has been introduced into the legislature

tion. A certain number of persons are to be
elected in each town by the inhabitants to act as
mediators. The office Is to be one of honor and
not of profit-no fee to be received except for
personal expenses or disbursements. The ean
ses of action of which this M.ediatiom Court is
to take cognizance are libel, slander, malicious
persecution, breach of promise of marriage,
assault, battery, false imprisonment, r.nd actions
of contract on claims not exceeding $100.
Parties may voluntarily appear before the conrt
without notice. A reconciliation effected before
this court, is to be a final determination of the
matter in controversy.
A trial of a newly-invented self breech-londing
and priming carbine has been ma-de at the School
of Musketry at Hythe. in England. Sixty shots
can be fired from this weapon in seven minutes ;
out of that number, at a range of one hundred
vards, forty-seven struck the bull's eye. Total
immersion in water of the carbine, loaded, did
not affect its explosive power, the fusee being
readily discharged. The rapidity of the firing
did not produce the slightest derangemnent, the
piece neither requiring oiling nor cleaning.
THE bombardment of Sebastopol was to be
gin as soon as all the guns were pliced and the
ammunition ready. It is said that the English
lines alone will fire away 420 tons of shot in
twelve hours, and the French lines nearly 800
tons; so that any one may calculate the amount
required for an incessant bombardment of fifty
or sixty hours. The English have already about
1,400 tons of shot and shell at camp, and when
about 600 tons more are added to that it was
expLeted that they would commence firing.

"Is THE CZAR DEAD?"-This (says the Balti

Maclane, Mores & Co.'s London Circular, by
the Africa. A postscript, written at the latest
moment before the steamer's sailing. says that a
rumor was current that the Empress of Russia

so marvelous as the Czar's death had taken place,
and an extensive business house as the above,
be so indefinite on the subject.
COMMERICTAL. CREDIT.-The Tallahassee, Flor

"In conversation the other day with an intel
ligent merchant of this placejust from the city
of New York, we were gratified to -learn through
him that Florida in the commercial world stands
second best on the list of States for promptitude
and punctuality. South Carolina first-Florida
second. Of the debts contracted since March
1854, South Carlina has paid fifty-eight, and
Florida fifty-seven per cent. All the other
States fall considerably below these figures
most of the Western States not averaging more
than twenty-five or thirty per cent."
QUEER DoDGE.-It has been discovered that
a keeper of a Inger bier celler in the Bowery,
for the purpose of evading the law reqiiring
him to close his place on Sunday, has been in
the habit of holding pretended religious services,
therein. officiating himself as the leader of cere

that I had to go on crutches, and in 1849 1 had one leg
anputated above the knee. In about nine monthsafter my.
other leg broke out in large eating and running sores from
my knee to mny fool, and discharged a great deal of offetn
sive matter. My groIn also broke out in large biles, which
discharged much offenstve matter, and at the same time
ty left hand broke out In large running sores nearly to my
elbow. The misery that I have suffered for the last two
vears I cannot describe to you. I was in such agony that
I never rested day ornight.
In October last my son brought me one of your bottle
wrappers; t1 read It,' and found record of some wonderful
cures performed by your " Extract of Yellow Dock ad
