THE LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
We present the following details of the At
lantic's advices, which we extract from our
[Vienna Letter to Constitutionel, March 3.]
THE APPoNTMENTS OF ALEXANDE.-Intelli
gence has been forwarded from Berlin that
Prince Menschikoff is recalled to St. Petersburg
from the command he has held in the Crimea
since the commencement of hostilities, and that
he will be succeeded in that position by Prince
Gortscakoff, who commanded the Russian for- i
ces last year in the Principalities. It is also 1
stated that General Rudiger has been summoned
from the high position he held in the army in
Poland to take the direction of the ministry of
war, in place of Prince Dolgorouki; and it is
surmised that General Bibikoff, the Home Min.
ister of the Empire, will be removed. If this
statement be confirmued, we may now very pro
bably take leave of Prince Menschikoff, whose
name has been and will ever remain so unfor
tunately mixed up with these transactions.
The'appointment of Count Rudiger to a high
er position in the government is creditable to
the judgment of the new Emperor. This offi
cer was the same who entered into negotiations
with Georgey in 1849. to bring to a termination
the Hungarian campaign, and who afterwards
endeavored to check the reactionary measures
taken against the Magyars. He is a man of
experience and moderation, whose influence is
likely to be decidedly opposed to that of the
fanatical Russian party, which has attempted to
give to this war the character of a national eru
sade. If it be the resolution of the new Em
peror to persevere in the negotiations which are
about to open at Vienna, and to make the neces
sary concessions for the restoration of peace, he
will need the authority of wise and firm coun
sellors to render that peace acceptable, and even
endurable to the Russian nation.
TuE POLICY OF THE NEW EMPEROR.
On Friday afternoon, a few hours after the
death of his father, the Czarowitch proclaimed
his assumption of the throne under the name of
Alexander 11 Nicolaiewitch, and received the
homage of the dignitaries of the realm. The
whole garrison was to perform the same cere
mony on the 3d. On the 2d, Count Panin, the
Minister of Justice, put seals upon the private
cabinet of the late Emperor, in the presence of
the heir. The Empress, though much affected
by the death of her husband, is said to have
been better than might have been expected after
the shock she had received.
No authentic intelligence has yet been receiv
ed from St. Petersburg, as to the state of pub.
lie feeling. It was rumored on Wednesday that
despatches had been received in Paris, which
describd the Rutssian capital as in a state of
great excitement. The nobles had met secretly
with a view of raddressing the Emperor on the
suibjiet of armiog the serfs. They proposed
pointinmg out to Alexander the ruin which would
..ceompany such at step, and the internal dangers
that might follow. It was expected thatt St.
Petersburg would be plaiced in a stateof siege..
The war party had already begun to threaten.i
The Emperor was reported to have declared his
intention to follow out the policy laid down by
Nicholas at the Congress of V'ienna. Prince
Gortsebakoff 's instructions had been confirmed.
G;eniual Paskiewitch wats opposed to the arming
of serfs, and had addressed time Emperor on the
The reigning Empress of Russia, Maria Alex

The following is the Lotndon Times' version1
of this extraordina?ry affair: "General Forey's
return to France is announced. This officer
commanded the corps employed at the siege be
foro the arrival of General Pelissier from Africa,
and it is rumored that he has fallen into disgrace.
To him is attribut~d, justly or otherwise, the
failure of the bold coup de wain attempted by
General de Dourmel, and in which the latter
lost his life. There is now in Paris an officer
who states that he was one of the number who
actually entered Sebastoipol on the occasion."
The gallant effort referred to was made on the
glorious, though terrible day of lnkermann,
when the French, in repulsing a sortie, followed
the reratn Russians into the town. General
Forey is therefore, if what is stated is true,
chargeable with cowardice in tnot maintaining
the advantage he had gainied, for it is presumed
that, if he had done so, Sebastopol would that
day have fallen, and he would hiatve been the
greatest man of the campaign. If he threw
away then the chance fortune had thirtust into
his hands and sacrificed hinmself, and, for the
time, the allied army, such a man deserves the
severest punishment; for, had Sebastopol been
occupied on the 5th of November, 20,000 brave
English and French soldiers would not have
sickened and died, from starvation and disease,
on the barren hills before that beleaguered city.
We cannot believe it is true, at least we hope
it is not; but we have given the authority for
the statements which point to an adverse con
GEN. QuAN.--A Natchez correspondent of
the Boston Journal, in reply to the Washington
rumors that the Government has positive assu
rance that General Quitman haa nothing to do
with any fillibustering expedition against Cuba,
"Quitman is as dearly engaged in his piratical
schemes as ever. Hie left his home a few days
since for New Orleans, where the expedition is 4
talked of as certain-all the "positive asstu
rance" of the United States Government to the
contrary notwithstanding. It is a matter of
surprise and grief to many of our citizens, that
twenty or thirty young men of this city have
within two or -three days left their hiomos to
embark in this enterprise, risking therein their
lives fortune, and what is more, their honor."
THE great California tree will be exhibited in
the Park at New York previous to its removal
to the exposition at Paris. This tree cost the
owner .S12,000 to cut it down and transport it
to New Y ork. It is in sections, and it will take
tn me'n at least ten days to erect the tree in
the Park. The body of it is thirty feet in diame

California, it is said, saw the tree growing at

EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 1855.
TO OUR DELINQ,UENTS: FAREWELL :
Tu time has come when, in accordance with the
esolution we long since adopted and in obedience to
,he dictates of common sense, we must hid you fare
vell. Together htve we communed, in every mood
'rom grave to gay, for many pleasant seasons; And
Ne had hoped that every one of you would have shown
>y your conduct (in regard to the limes,) that you
-ecognised our right to live upon the legitimate fruit
)f our often difficult and always honest exertions as
ditors and publisl era. But you have ignored alke
ur requests and* our demands. We therefore send
(ou now your last number of the 1 Edgefield Adverti
rer." You cannot think hardly of us for taking this
iecessary step. It is what you would all do if similar
ty dealt with. Are you a merchant! If you had a
:ustomer who for years had been trusted by you for a
imall sum and, as often as you applied to him for
iayment, had constantly neglected your claim, you
vould certainly sell him no more goods. Are you a
Farmer? The man, whom you had accomodated
vith bread year after year, and who (although able)
'esolutely refused a settlement at t!.e end of that time
-that man you would drop as unworthy to be accomo
ated longer. Are you a Lawyer? a Doctor! a
[eacher? T e same argumenturn ad hominem will
pply in every case. And is the Printer not a man
oo, like the rest of you? Shall he alone he kept out
if his rightful dues ! But why ne.'d we reason upon
he subject? It is with regret, old friends, that we say
o you, "Farewell!" But the word of parting must
ie put upon the record. We have enough of paying
ubscribers (thanks to the generous crowd!) to " puth
ong keep moving" without you. That you can do
ithout our visits, is probable enough. And even so
et it be !-Valc ! Longum Vale!
ROBERT SULLivAN, Edgefield C. H: Our readers
vill perceive, by referring to the revised and enlarged
Advertisement of Mr. RoBEkT SULLIVAN, that ie
mas now fully opened his new and sut erb stock. We
vere in his store the other day, and, in looking around,
:ould not but be struck with the neatness and com
deteness of every arrangement. We say the truth,
vien we assert that his goods are of the best and his pri
es very moderate. Let those who doubt, call and see
A. G. RAMSEY, P. 31: We are requested by Mr.
IAMsEY to call attention to the positive necessity of
>repaying all letters that are designed to be mailed.
Dlhcrwisc they will not be despatched to their destina.
ion. Some thirty have already been deposited, unpaid.
'heir respective writers had better look to them.
and every one, without further notice, would do well
o bear in mind that this Regulation of the P. IN. De
artment is astringent one, and must be enforced.
M. FRAZIER, Edgefield C. H: The full and very
tttractive advertisement of Col. FRAZIER, in our pre.
ient issue, will of course be read with interest. The
olonel's establishment looks brilliant and beautiful,
lecked as it is with the rainbow colors of a hundred
lry-goods fancies. Turn to another column for the
WIL.IAM SHEAR, Augusta, Ga: We need scarce
y say anything in commendation of this old and popu
ar house. It's sterling merits are well known to all
,vho trade at Augusta in the line of dry goods. It has
>een said that Wm. Su E ARa keeps one of the best stores
n the Southern country ; and we beleive there is a
;reat deal of truth in the remark.
WE are indebted to Mr. WtITE, of Green wood, for
L bag of cotton-seed which he denominates the " Cal.
ouun cotton-seed." They are in our office and may
>e examined by any who like. This seed is said to
'qual any uplands now in use, whether for productive.
ess or excellence of staple. Should any desire to try
the present season, they can procure the seed in
mall quatntities, at S1 per bushtel, by applying t o Mr.
.M. Nicueotas at th-a " Carolitna Hotel."
A~ONG with others, we have been favored by Capt.
ons LtrsCosIDE, of our village, with a portion of
is very ntice Florida syrup. It is reatlly arn excellent
.rticle to accompany hut biscuits and good rye-butter
n the way of lunch.--The Captain itnforms us that he
aises it in abunxdanc~e on his place in Florida, as dto
lost of his brother planters there. They use it abun
lantly for their negroes. This is certainly one advan
age, and a considerable one, which the Floridianis
ae over us.
THE INSTITUTE CONCERT.
Mrs. RAYMOND and hter scholars gave a dlelightfulI
'oncert, on Friday night last, mn the large hall of the
eml Institute, before a brieliant anid attentive au*
tence. The young ladies and little girls performed
heir parts in better style decidedly thani we ht-vs
ver before known them toglo. There was a neatness,
.n accuracy, a propriety, a spirit about the whole
ifair which reflects, high credtt upon the exc-ellent
tdy who presided and directed during the evening.
ler girls on this occasion gave such manifest proof oh
heir admirable training, that we cannot imagine how
.oy one can lunger distrust the advancement of their
augtters in this beautiful art of Music, when tunder
ra. RAYMON's charge. There was a new feature
n the audience too, which gratified us exceedingly.
twas the respectful attenttiun which every one, little
oya and all, exhibited towards the lovely performers.
rhe circumstance, we thought, evidenced not only
hat the hearers were entertained pleasanttly, but that
here was an atmosphere of true gentility previailing
hroughtout the evening. We doubt not that every one
eresent felt itndebted to Mrs. R. aned her chtaring
cchool for this very agreeable concert.
0a Wednesday last the Court House at this place
:aught on fire from a spark that fell upon the roof.
['ho flame was discovered when quite small, and by
he activity of several daring citizens, was arrested at
nn early stage of its progress. Otherwise, Edgefield
Nold have been to-day without a Coturt House. And
he confusion in the state o: the Public Recordsw which
Dust have occurred, would probably have been felt
y the District for many a l-on. day. This circum
tance strongly suggests to the Commissioners of Pub
ic Buildings, not only in Edgefield but elsewhiere
hroughout the State, the great necessity n~ hich exists
r fire-proof Court Houses, at least to tthe extent of
in or slate roofs. We are glad to observe that sever
t of ur on n Commissioners are impressed with the
mportance of this thing ; and we shall confidently
ook to them to act out their feelings in this regard at
ts early a day as they may find practicable. Sorely,
t would meet with the highest acceptance from the
,vhole people of Edgefield.
By the bye, it occurred to us the other day, afte
his threatening fire wa'.rs extinguished, that there had
mene been a Fire Engine and a Fire Company in the
rillage of Edgefield to meet occasions of this kitnd,
knd we naturally asked, what has becomne of this am
>f our city police!? Some said in reply that " they
,verestill in existence, btut that the Company never
urned out ! and that the Engine was used to supply
WrrT'rs Boiler under the hill with wvater from the
:elebrated creek of Beaver-dam! !" How is this,
lolonel of the " Bloody 7th!?" Is it enough to exempi
nen from militia duty, that they merely keep up the
came of an organized corps, without the first symsp
o of real efficiency ?-And how of-the Engine,
thr. INTNDANT of Edgefield, or whoever has the care
if such things!? Is it not tho property of the Town,
Lnd should it not be kept ever ready for the purpose
vhich was had in view by those who purchased it
h'e ask these questions suggestively, with the single
nttion of drawing out a true statement of the case
'rom those better posted thtan ourself.
DULL TIMtES AND DOG FIGHTS.
Since Court, our town seems to have fallen back
nt the same old channel of peace and quiet which
isually characterises it. To break thu monotony,
eral exciting dog fights have been gotten tip ant
eeral more are pending. One clay in partic:ular,
here seemed to be a mancia upon the subject, match
ifter match having been made to the great delectation
if all beholders. This is encouraging the breed of
>ul-dc'gs in a manner at once effective and edifying
:ffective, because it fully tests the durability of out
leveral kennels-and edifying, because, the lookers-on
have. a fine opportunity of learning the various bull
fog grabs, from the throttle to the leg-holt. Besides,
A NEW RAIL ROAD PROSPECT.
THE Directors of the Savannah Valley Rail Road
Company have recently held a meeting in Hamburg,
for tae purpose of consulting upon the several ques
tions of importance to that. Company. Among other
things, the Augusta subscription of four hundred i
thousand dollars was rejected, as we understand, on 1
rccount (mainly) of certain conditions with which it'
was clogged. Another item, of lively interest to many, I
is the determination to institute forthwith the survey
of a line, to run from DoaN's Mine in Abbeville Dis
trict, as direct as possible to the Village of Aiken on
the South Carolina Rail Road. We suppose the ulti
mate intention is, when Charleston shall have placed
her figures in handsome style upon the books of the
Company, to locate the road, or at all events a branch
of it, according to this proposed survey.
We have said that this is a matter of lively interest
to many; we may add, that it is scarcely more so to I
any other community than to the one in and around i
the Town of Edgefield. By an examination of the i
late map of South Carolina, which is thought to be
one of uncommon geographical accuracy, it will be
seen that a direct line front Dorn's to Aiken will not
run more than four miles below this place, say some- I
where near Horn's. Creek Meeting-House. But any I
one acquainted with the very hilly-almost precipi- i
tous-character of that region, must see at once that I
to run a Rail Road along there would be next to an I
impossibility. The best wiay, and in fact we regard
it the only one, of avoiding the difficulties of this di
rect route, will be to diverge slightly to the left in i
coming down, after passing Beaverdam Creek, so as I
to strike the ridge between Beaverdam and Horn's
Creeks ; or, which may be better still, to follow the
valley of the Beaverdam into the very Village of
Edgefield. Either deflecti' it would necessitate the
location of the Road sufficiently near to us to be of
great utility, while neitherone would increase the dis.
tance between the two termini more than a mile. Of
course the practicability in either case would have
palbably the advantage over the direct line.
It would thus seem that circumstances, one way or
I another, are bent upon giving us a Rail.Road. The
chance now dawning upon us, through the Valley
Company's operations. is quite as cheering as any we
have heretofore had. If the intent is a bona fide one
on the part of that Company-we see no reason for
I doubting that it so-and if Charleston shall co me
forward (as is expected) readily and full-handed to
the help of the work, it may be carried out at an
early day. Who knows but that in this very way, so
little anticipated in all our calculations, we may soon
enjoy Rail Rotd facilities to our hearts' content !
But the reflection next suggests itself, shall we, the
denizens of so respectable a burgh as Edgefield, sit
down with grinning satisfactio: , and see other people
build a road by which we are to he immediately and
largely benefitted, without so much as moving a finger
towards its assistance ? For one n c answer, No! We
I should step forward with the spirit of men, and meet
the enterprise, not only with cordial well-wishes, but
with substantial aid. " How !" it may be asked. We
answer, by tur. ing over the subscription, which we
proffered to the Greenville & Columbia Company, to
the Savannah Valley Company. The objection will
be raised, that a portion of this subscription *would fly
I off, if the attempt were made to divert it from its
original purpose. Granted. And yet, if we know
any thing of the men whose names are appended to
that subscription list, one hundred thousand dollars
would stand firm, provided lie guarantee were given
that we should have a Rail Road certainly and speedi.
ly. Neither would this involve the least breach of
promise towards the Greenville & Coluinbia Company.
Consider the position of matte-s between us. We
have made up one hundred and fifty thousand dollars,
which amount has been tendered to the Greenville &
Columbia Coin any upon certain reasonable condi.
tions. This sum was raised, in no inconsiderable de
gree, upon the hopes created by the President of that
Road himself. Of his own sincerity in the matter
we have not a doubt, nor of his earnest desire that the
connecting link between Ninety-Six Depot, or Green
wood, or a point near New Market, and some point at
or near Aiken, should be built. But his co-directors
seem not to have agreed w ith him. They have deter.
mined that now is not the ilme to enter Upn t2ia work.
Our proffe~r, of one hundred atnd fifty thousand dollars,
lias beetn slighted if not despised. Sticht being the
state of matter.,, what hinders but that we proceed to
turn over our said subscription, or as much of it as
may be, to the Savannah Valley Road. Free are we
to admit that the connectinig link just alluded to is
the one we ,hould choose on several grounds. Bit
this opportunity is closed agtainst its ; and, in the very
nick of time, another presents itself. Shall we slight
it, anid he cut off forever from the peculiar benefits of
the age ! Or shall we lay hold upon the occasion with
energy, and show that we are willing to w'ork in any
harness for the common good of our District and State!
tet us be on the alert. Time flies. Enterprises are
on foot in every quarter of the country. Let not Edge
field Village be the only place where they are frowned
ISome few nights since, a palpable ellort was made
to fire the matin block of Buildings on our square-we
mean, the Park Row block as it is called. T1hte incen
diary liad placed beneath thte back steps of Col. Cntis
'riE's store, combustible materials of ditferenit kinds
and among them a large piece of fat ightwooid. At
the time the fire was discovered, the lightwood ha-h
begun to bturn freely and the flame was rapidly taking
hold of thte steps. Luckily, a gentleman sleeping in a
room near the sp'.t, awoke in time to drag the burning
pine from benteath the steps before they had well
ignited. And thus our town narrowly escaped another
disastrous fire on ithe very spot wihere oite occurred a
few years ago.
This was evidently the work of an iticendiary. That
there is danger about us cannot be denied ; and our
citizens cannot be too watchtftul under the circusmstan
ces. We conceive it to be the duty of our Town
Council at least to offer a reward for thetdiscovery and
apprehension of the villain who has here sought to
perpetrate one of the darkest ofliences in the whole
caalognie of crimes.
A DAILY ft[AIL.
WE have I efore us a letter from the Post Office
Deartment, forwardedl to us hy our attentive Congres
sional Representative, lion. P. S. Batoxs. It is in
reply to one addressed to the Depar:ment by Mr.I
Bonxs, on the subiject of a daily Mail betwveen Au
gusta, Ga., and Ninety-Six Depot otn the Greeniville
& Colombia Railroad. Our memiber wsas informed of
the earnest desire of many of his Edgefield constituents,
that this Dail y Mail line should be granted ; and with
most praise-worthty promtptitude he applied to the pro
Iper officer, urging in strong terms the ttecessity of thte
inc. We are sorry to say that for the present the ap
pl.iati has gone by the board. Bitt in the letter
efore us, the hope is held out that the arrangement
may be made so as to take effect at the nest general
letting-out of contracts for the U. S. tnail-seivice.
Would it not be well to get up a petition forthwith to
this end!i Who does not desire a daily channel of
intelligence, connectinig us with the world arotind!i
Now is our chance to proicure it. Let it be pressed by
all means. With the present disposition of the Depart
ment in regard to the mtijter, a strong petition, backed
by the influence of our energetic Representative,
coutd scarcely fail of success.

news of the Czar's death was proclaimed by the man
agers of the several theatres, the announcement was
Ireceived with tumulluous cheering. In Paris, the
police arrested the ballad-singers for chanting verses
disresp etful to the dead Czar. Let each one draw
his own conclusion. To our view, the contrast is de
cidedly in favor of the French.

of tier houisehold establishment, receives 600,000

"Newspapers aire to a town whit its adver

man of business at a high cost. They concen
trate public nttention upon -its buildings, its

every name and class, uppermost to the publie
mind. They go into every nook and corner of
thme surroutding country, inito every mian's door,
and to every man's fireside; they go abroad to
very great distances, into other communities,
iamotng strangers, exciting an interest amuotng its
concerns, atid spreading information of its

more the pttblic itt large hear and read of a town
or country, the more they are tempted to see,
visit and explore it. WVhat would a merchatnt
be if his name were unknow~n to the public, and
his business were as obscure as his name?
Whait would a merchant's sign board over the

he did not send it with a catalogue of his wares

would ho tempted to visit a town that had tno

accidentilly, and oncee in a year or a life lime."
A good ttewspaper gives more importunice to
it town thatn till other agencies combined. What
passion is more universal than the passion for
reaiding newspapers anod learnting the news?
Whatt disposition is more general and uncon

BURNING THE WOODS.
The following well-timed remarks are from the
Charleston Mercury, while speaking of the sad
ravages of the destructive conflagration which
hias been so recently raging in all sections of
this and adjoining States :
These are the evils which follow the burning
of the woods merely, but when to them are ad
ded the destruction of houses, settlements, fen
es, rovisions, and at a time when the planter
is bending all his energies in preparation for the
coming crop, it is impossible to condemn the
euatom m termis too strosib, or to recommend'
the resort to measures too harsh. It is an evil
which should be correeced by the most efficient
legislation, imposing severe penalties upon those
who for their own iittle interests recklessly in
liet ineatlculable loss upon others. These tires
usully origiinate with men who have a few eat.
tIe, set fire to oither people's woods in order
that they may have early pasturage. A wisp of
lighted straw begins the work which ends in
such consequences as we have spoken of.
T[hle thing is so easily done, a.id the chances
of detection so remote, that nothing but the
most active legislation, vigilantly enforced, will
prove of any L.vail. To us the idea is intolera
ble, of people being permuitted, every season, to
commit such acts of impunity--acts which ex
hmibit the mtost criminal disregard to the property
aid interests of others. A iiublc forest is toO
rich ain inheritatnce to be thus ruthlestly destroy
ed. It is the supiport anid hope of a people's
agricultural future, no less than the pride and
ornment of their possessions. And the codes
of civilized nations visit with severe punishment
the very conduet wvhich in South Carolina
knows no rebuke. it is full time that some
thing pratctical be done, and with these remarks
we leave the matter to the planters cf the State,
whose interests have suffered so long and dearly
from the prevalence of the custom.

LAWS AT NEW. ORLEANS.-Julan Pays, coinvic

has been sentenced to thirty days imprisonment
in the Stte prison. Thme Judge who sentenced
him said :
" As you have been found guilty, it becomes
my duty to sentence you. The laws allows me
to sentence you for twenty ye-ars or less, at my
disretion. Tfaking into view all the circum
stances of your ease, not the least of which is
that you are the first who has been convicted
of the offence, and.the fact that you are repre
sented by all to be a mamn of mild and peacea
ble temper, that you haive been, during a resi
dence of twenty jears, honest and uprignt in all
your relations of lire, and that you h-ave never
e.fore bee charged with any violation of law, I
shall, therefore, seintene you to thirty datys,
imprisonment at bard labor in the State prison.'
"B Js THERE YE T?"-Considerble curiosity,
ot to say excitement, has been arotused in New
Orleans by the phrase, "Is there yet?1" posted
up about the city. Speculations differ as to
whether it shall be understood r?s referring to
some Know-Nothing society, or as bearing uponi
the fiuhan qtnestion.
