EFXCUTION OF PINTO,
The Charleston Mercury in noticing the re
cent execution of Pinto in Cuba, remarks:
"The bloody execution of the Duke D'Eng
hem, by Napoleon's order, and the hartless fate
of Marshal Ney, fall below it in black atrocity.
The facts are now pretty well ascertained. The
auditor of war, whose assent to the sentence of
capital punishment is demanded by the' laws of
the Island, positively refused to sign the war
rant, on the ground that no sufficient case had
been made out against Pinto. The chief, if not
the sole witness, was a vile wretch, who had
been previously condemned for felonies and par.
doned, and beame now the tool of the Captain
General, in his bloody purpose, against his for
mier friend and Secret.ry. The refusal of the
Auditor of War scemed only to have incited
Concha the more, and contrary to all law, pre
cedent or humanity, he instituted an arbitrary
court of four, which should revine and overrule
this decission. But, so tlagrant was the wrong,
that even this court were equally divided, whetn
Concha, bent on the life of his victim, and in
censed at the protection which law and mercy
threw around him, decided hituself the question,
and ordered Pinto's execution in twenty hours.
He met his fate calmly and bravely, protesting
his innocence with his dying breath. Such are
briefly the facts of this foul murder.
It is asserted, and not without plausiblejusti
fication, that Pinto, in his rel.ttions as secretary
of Concha, was possessed of evidetice going to
show that Concha himself had meditated trea
son agpinst, the Spanish Government, land the
establishment of a dictatorship over Cuba. To
Concha's guilty soul he was therefore a contin
ual dread. Hence the resort to such proceed
ings against him, and the fiendish malignity
with which lie persued him to his death. He
was determined to rid himself of the witness to
his crime at all hazards, and without regard to
law or right.
It is not for us to intermeddle with the deal.
ings of other Governments with their subjects.
till less do we advertise ourselves as the cliam
pions of the oppressed in all quarters of the
globe. It is enough if we protect our own soil
from tyranny and cruelty. But there are acts
which strike a chord of common sympathy-acts
so luminous in their enormity, and their outrage
upon humanity, that we would indeed be un
worthy of the name of tmen, if we passed them
by unnoticed. Such was the murder of Man.
uel Pinto. And a people among whom such
things can be done, cpenly and with impunity,
are entitled to the sympathy of every brave and
generous heart. It is unfortunate for Spain,
that her officia: dares so to act, it this time,
when all over the country the fate of Cuba is
regarded with still deepening interest-when
the Government is compelled to practice the
sternest vigilance to prevent the attempts of
bold adventurers--when our relations with Spaini
in regard to this very Islan~d-have become angry
and threatening-at such a time, a fact like this
is well calcutlated to sever the thread which sus
pendis the sword. The best and soberest may

by the promptintgs of a common nature, give
eneouragemenit to the enterprise.
THE BRITISH IN~ TH E IEA.
One of the witnesses, a ship-master, examined
before the Roebuck Committee, gave the lollow
inig testimony regarding his observations and in.
formation obtained in the Crimea:
"When I was there I was told of Lord Cardi
gatn's horse force-they could only muster fifty
at the most. Ail their manes and tails were
eaten oft. They had eaten each other's manes
and tails ofT. The men were ragged and very
lous~y, many of thetn. I went into the French
camp. The tpen there seemed quite a contrast
to our men ; they were building huts, not otily
for themselves, but for the Biritish. I left Batla
klarat in the steamer Ci:y of Londotn for Con-.
stantinople 5 January. Weo were to tow a batr
qjue, the "Monarchy," conveying sick. The
captain of that vessel told my captain that 20
had died, being frost-bitten. and lie said that
many of their legs had rotted oft; and they had
thrown them overboard."
Another witoess testified that lie saw soldiers
eating their rations raw for want of fuel to cook
them. The samue witness described Admiratl
Boxer, who had comumand att Balaklava, as " a
very intetuperate old mnazi who gave very extra
Tlhe chaplain to the First Division gavo evi
" At the time he was at the camp there was a
great deal of icikness. I satw the hospitals
every day. The patients were lying on the
gro~und, sotme on bushes. * * * * Thte
bodies were carried to the gratves itn blankets,
and the blankets were takens oft; an order to
that effect beitng given, in consequence of its
being reported that the bodies were dug up
again and the blankets stolen. The only time I
ever heard soldiers making complaints, who
were not sick, wats when they complained of
their comrades being exposed by the blankets
being removed. There were matny wild dogs,
but they had enough to eat from the deatd hior
ses, without digging up the burial ground."
Another extract from the testimotny of Mr. G.
Dundas, 31. P., will sufiice'to show what British
.soldiers suffered :'rom aristocratic incompetency:
"As to the state of the men, their uniforms
were all in rags, and they seemed to be ina
slate of extreme dirt and misery. The conditiot
of the itnfantry was evetn worse than that of the
casvalry, on account o'f the greater distance of
their encampment from Balaklava. Their uni
forms, for the most part, were tattered, and gen.
erally they wore great coats over their uniforms,
but their trousers were in rags. He had veen
men get hold of sandbags atnd wrap them round
the lower part of their legs, as somse proteelion
against the mud atnd cold. As to their food, lie

Accoms Tro Mas. WEsTE.-The New~
Tribune, of Saturday, says:-- Yesterday after
noon, as the catrriage of Mr. Curtis was paissing
through Fourteenth street, the horses becamt
frightened and ran away-the driver losing al
control of them. Mrs. Webster, widow otf the
late Daniel Webster, was in the carriage at thme
time, atid, becoming alarmed, jumped out of the
vehicle, in conseqttence of she was severe
ly itnjured. She was throwl with great violence
upon the pavemuent, and striking upon her head,
was badfy cut. Sonme citizens, who witnessed
the occurrence, hastened to her relief and con
veyed her, in a state of insensibility, to the
dwelling house No.76 Fourteenth street. Medi
cal attendance was promptly at hand, and Mrs.
WV. recovered sufficiently in a short time to be
conveyed to her residence. The injuries she
sustained are of a very serious nature."
SUDDEN DEATH.-We regret to learn that Mr.
Levi Williams, died suddenly while on his way
to the Village, on WVednesday ipet. It is suppo
sed his deaith was caused from Apoplexy. He
was foutnd about 4 miles from this place, lying
by the side of the road. Mr. Williams was an
old and respected citizen of this District.-Lex

ARTHUR SIMKINS1 EDITOR.
EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 1855.
THE editor having levanted* to Charleston, for the
purpose of attending the Fair, we are permitted
by the boss in command to take as wide a row as we
see fit. If we can possibly confine ourself to a column,
we shall try to do so. But the upheavings of genius,
which swell our bosom at the bare sight of that old
arm-chair, premonish us that this may scarcely be.
We shall see.
*Bear in mind, brother quills, that we have been the
Jrst man to introduce this bcautiful word into the
'parlance' of the craft.
ON the eve of going to press we received a long and
very descriptive advertisement from this .well-known
House, but too late for this issue. We are informed
by a friend, and a gentleman of fine taste, that Ga.tv
BRoTHERS are now receiving and opening one of the
Largest, Prettiest and Cheapest assortment of Goods
ever offered in Augusta. Whenever you visit that
City be certain to give them a call.
THE BLACK LIST t
THIS week we commence, according to promise, the
"Black List." On another column will Ie found
a, " List" of ten of the hardest cases that a poor prin
ter ever had dealings with. We never saw any of
them, but we imagine, that they are ten of the mean
est and most loathsome looking whits men now to be
found. We have no sympathy for them-in fact they
have no more need of sympathy than a billy-goat has
TIIE RASCIIE FAMILY.
WE had a special invitation to attend the Concert
of Saturday night given by Prof. RAsCHE and his
interesting family, and were well pleased *with the
varied and excellent performance of each and every
member. Master ALFRED just beats all creation
with his fiddle, and lie is, in the language of MooRs,
the great historian,
"Just as good a fiddler as ever draw'd a how."
But W5i. PARROw, that " Shanghaie" fellow, is
the chap that tickled ts; and we took such a fancy
to him that we named our old bob-tail rooster after
him. Should we ever have the pleasure of seeing
him again, we'll know him by his " crow." May
crowded houses and great success attend Professor
RAsCHE, his musical prodigals and BiL.. PARtow
wherever they may go.
HAvING to occupy the inside chair this week, we
supposed it to be the inalienable right to turn over the
Editor's papers with a free hand. And we further
supposed that, in doing so, we should find some little
editorial tit-bits which we might read, revise and ap
propriate. Our supposition was entirely erroneous.
The only thing we found, which even squinteol ti
wards the business in harid, was a scrip of paper with
the following memoranda scratched upon it in a very
rude and inartistic manner:
1. RALttRoADs AGAIs.
2. GRANITEVILLE AND MR. GREGG.
3. TmiE EDITOR'S " LEADER."
4. PETIGRU'S ORATION, &C.
This, we suppose, was the bill of fare (so far as de
termined upon) for our present number; and, although
we cannot well imagine what we shall say, yet re
garding it to be our duty to say something under each
of these captions, we proceed to the task with a diffi
dent Iteart, a nervous hand, hut a first rate steel pen:
Again and again have we descanted upon Rail
roads and their advantages. Again and again have
we written about the iron hors,.- with breast of brass
and main of smoke. Again and again have we at
tempted to exhort our people into a Railroad fever.
And, again and again, have our Railroad articles
failed of suc-cess. So much so, that wve are very near
vowing never to write on Railroads again. And, if
that ain't sticking to our text, we don't knouw what is.
2.-GRANITEVILL.E & GREGG.
IThese two words, being the names of Edgefield's
flourishing manufacturing Village and of the distin
guished founder thereof, both begin with a G. This,
to our humble view, is eminently suggestive of the
fact, that there are two very expressive English mono
syllables beginning with the same letter-we mean
great and good. The application need not be piointed
3-TIIE EDITOR'S " LEADER."
Our private opinion is that the Editor's " Leader,"
as they call it, is jttst about the 'hillest I art of a
newspaper. In times of peril and excitement, wi en
momentous questons, bearitig upon the home rights of
thme reader, ii re to be discussed aiid determi nedl, they
are admirab'e afFauirs (these "leaders,") provided they
lead us along the high-road of honor and principle.
Bitt this eternaul rounid of dull, prosy, speculatory dis
sertation uipon suchi matters as the " Eas'ern Ques
tion" in all its changing pthases, or the "' Adinistra
tion" with its whims andI caprices, or " Kntow Nothi
ing-ismn" with its perishable absurdities-suich as this,
we say, is intolerable. Give us short, racy paragraphs
all the time, unless you havo sonie truths to evolve
bearing directly upon our rights andl interests.
That is a right tight paragraph, Colonel, but w e
always endeavor to .speak plainly the honest convic
tions of our heart.
4.-PETlIGRU'S OR AT ION, &C.
Not having been honored with a copy of this pro.
duction, and not finaditng the Editor's copy in his
drawer, we beg to be excused from pe'petrating a
criticism. It is perhaps well, both for 3Mr. PETIGRU
and ourself, that such is the case. Because, whenever
we call to nmind the drawling affectation of his niasal
twang, we feel as though it would be a good thuing if
somebody would fairly jerk the hide off of him. This
we should be tempted to do in the matter of his ora
tion. The next thing of coturse would be a ref ly front
Mr. PErTottU. Then wouldl fullow a rejoinder front
us-then a rebutter from Mr. PF.TTIGitU and a sub
rebutter from us. And so the public would at leingth
he glad e nougt. when Mr. P ETIGRaU and oulrselfshiould
reach the end of ouir controversy. Taking this view
of the matter, we say it is well both for Mr. Pr.TIGR U
andi ourself (and we miay adid, the reading public of
the United States,) that the said Mr. Pr.TiRa's said
oration is not before us.
Now here we are somewhat flusierateud. What the
Eitor meant to acknowledge, it is imnpossible for us
to tell, having no clue to his sins of omission and
commission. We suppose thereforo that we must
make a clean breast in our own intdividuial case. Here
Gentle reader, on Monday night last it so happened
that we were left alone in the establishment knownt
as the " Advertiser O1lice." Searching about, as is
our custom when left alone andl unoccupied, we foundl
under a heap if lierary matter a little old black
cunck bottle about half full of real goued R. G. whis
key,-deposited there, we suppose, by the Editor, for
his own individual use. Blessing our luck, we drank
health after health to the God of Solitude, until at
length, to our amazement and ctnfusion, the room
b egati to turn around, the old press was multiplied
into a half dozen, there were ten candles where only
one stood before, and every thmog else undlerwvent a
Isimilar transmogrification. Suffice it to say that, for
the first time since last Christmas, we were tight.
And, hoping to be excused by the " old man" and
Ievery body else, we hereby " acknowledge the corn."
WE have glanced rapidly and generally over our
host of exchanges. They are all well laden with
sweets and solids, jests and jottings, facts and fancies.
The motto in Uncle John's old copy of Salmnagundi
would suit some of them well:
" In hoc est hoax coin quiz et jokeses,
Et smoke 'em, toast 'em, roast 'enm folkses."
To one and all, the " Imp" of the Advertiser would
say, " Push along, brave lads! There's a good time
a coming for many a poor fellow who now toils on,
through foot teen long hours out of the twenty-four,
undimayed. " Never despair" is the language to live
or die by. " Be sure you are right, and go ahead,"
will take a fellow over to ' kingdom come' when noth
ing else will.
E' THEz " Sebastopole" is thme title of a new
cloak for the ladies. So called, we surmise, because
COUkTER, or SCOOTER, or both together, propound
a question this week'to the Colonel, which we in his
absence take upon us to answer.
We hold that a man who burns his neighbor's fen
ces intentionally, is as much under the instigation of
old Satan as the one who applies the torch to the very
house his neighbor sleeps in. (SEE 26 BRIGToN,
ON TIM FIRE LAWs.) But if this thing bp done,
indiferentc animo as it were,-that is to say with no
prepensatory maliciousness-why, of course (45, BoL.
IVAR, ON TIlE EvIDENCES OF GUILE) there is mitch
to lenify the ma'tter. Still, even then, the culpability
is highly condemnatory in the eye of Justice; and, ac.
cording to recent decisions by the Courts, it is not en
tirely certain that proof of non-malintentionableness
*ill hereafter screen the offender from exemplary
punishment. We therefore warn all such gentlemen
to be upon their guard. A new process, it is thought
will be gotten up to suit this particular class of mis.
demeagors. It is to be designated as a trespass in the
nature of a " Quare clausum conjlagravit."
TO OUR SWEETHEART.
DE.R NANCY :-In order to show you that we
never, never forget thee-not even whilst we are
adorning the Editorial sanctum with our humble pres
ence, and thousands of eager readers are anxiously
awaiting cur soul-stirring effusions-we have conclu
dled to indite a short article for our mtual benefit.
Well, you recollect the other night at the Concert
when that little red-headed, patridge nosed, owl-eyed,
big mouthed miss was asked who was that with you,
she said, as a smile covered her face resembling
" Death on the Palo Horse,"-" Oh, me! why, he is.
nothing but a printer's boy." And Nancy, if we ever
felt like chawing up flint rocks, this was the time.
Oh, good gracious, we was so hot-our blood fairly
biled in our veins; and if it had been one of the mas
culine gender, he would've got awfully whipped. We
was so mad, dear NANCY, that we wis afraid to go
home with you, and taking everything into conside
ration, we know you'll pardon us for our conduct
Since then we have gradually cooled down, and
have forgiven the poor girl-it was ignorance that
caiused her to use the remark. Read the following
extract to her, which we take from one of the first
books of the country. It will cut her a little, if it
don't lead to repentance.
"NOBODY BUT A PRINTER ANYtow.-Such was
the eneering remark of a person residing not a thou
sand miles from the door of onr sanctum, in referring
to the profession we follow in pride. " Nobody I ut a
printer," in sooth! It makes our blood run rampant
through our veins, to hear such expressions fall from
the lips of those nursed on republican soil. "Nobody
but a printer, anyhow !" Who was Benjaman Frank
lini? "Nobody but a printer!" who was William
Caxton, one of the fathers of literaturo? "Nobody
but a printer !" Who was Earl Sanhope! "Nobody
but a printer !" Who was Governor Armstrong, of
Massachusetts? "Nohody but a priter!"
Who were Governor Bigler, of Pennsylvania, and
Governor Bigler. of California! " Nobody but prin
ters !" George P. Norris. N. P. Willis, Joseph Gales,
Charles Richardson, James Harper, Horace Greely,
Bayard Taylor, Robert Sears, and Senators Dix,
Cameron and Niles-who are they! " Nobody but

son that chooses can't be a printer. Brains are ne
THE ELOQUENCE OF LANGUAGE.
IN all our reading, and it was very varied until we
got to dabbling in ink, we have never met with any
thing at once so expressive ar:d so elegantly wrought
out as the following. It is said to have been an of.
hand apostrophe to his home, enunciated bythe cele
brated Brudder BoNEs, on the occasion of one of his
benefits. Read and admire:

MURDER.-We sincerely regret to learn thi
particulars of a sad event which occuresd ii
Chester District, on Friday last, and resulted ii
the death of a slave Andrewv, the property o
Mr. Richard E. Kennedy, at the hands of
oung man named Bell. The boy', who hat
been hired by Mr. Bell :ts a laborer on his farm
ran away several weeks ago aind remained in thi
woods tintil Fridiy, when he was cnught ant
whipped so severely and unmereifully as t<
ause immediate death. His skull was t'racture<
in several places, and the entire body mangle<
in a most horrid manner. A jury of inques
rendered in a verdict in accordance with thesi
facts. Mr. Bell has niot yet been apprehended
From ai personal acquaintance with Mr. Bell
we cannot but be deeply painedi, as wdll a:
greatly surprised, ait such tin event. He hat
hitherto borne an irreproachatble character, an<i
we had mairked hima as an honest, inoffensivi
and kind-hearted young man; anid we must be
lieve, that the fnects as relaited to us have beet
much exaggerated. Should they prove to be
trie, however, the crime is one of an almos
unparatel ed enormity, and, committed unde
peculiar circumsttanees, it calls for thne executiot
of the utmost rigor of the law.-Yorkville En
THE ST. Louis Republican states thiat order
have been received from Washington for tht

Gen. Harney, to. the Western Plains, with
view to the chastisement of the Indiauns wht
hve, for years past, been engaged in depredau
tions upon the property, and the murder o
American citizens. It is understood that 1,201
of the troops are to be stationed at Fort Lara

.IarroRTs OF DRY GooDS.-The imports o
dry goods at New York for the last five weeks
according to the Journal of Commerce, amoun
to but 8i4,828,560, which is $3,080,601 lea
than for the same time in 1854, and $4,956,75
less than for the same time in 1853. It is ever
less by 8757,258.than for the corresponding pe
rod of .i852, a year in which the total dry good
landed at the port amounted to only sixty-oni
millions of dollars. This decline is more raii
than was expected, and hits done mucht to giri

SEBASTOPOL CANNOT BE TAKEN.-The Nev
York correspondent of the Charleston Courie
makes the following report of a recent convet
sation with Mr. Marsh, our late and highly in
telligent Minister at Constantinople, on the sub
ject of the war and prospects in the Crimea:
Mr. Marsh maintained, very decidedly, th
opinion that the allies can neither conquer th
Crimen, nor take Sebastopol. So far as th
peculiar energy and prestige of the late Czar
formed an element of the Russian strength, th
power of Russia for defence may have been di
minished by his death; but an accession of nem
elements may be brought to the national power
by enthusiasm with which his memory ma;
be erished and his policy sustained. Wil
not the whole nation respond to the emphati
prayer of Alexander 11., that "in his persot
might be exemplified the incessant wishes anc
views of lteter, Catharine, of Alexander, an
his father ?"
DEATH OF A SLAVE IN SYRAcusE.-DOII
Robinson, a colored woman, died at Syracus, N
Y., on the 25th uit. The most, remarkab'e fea
ture of her character was her resolute persis
tence in maintaining the same relations to he
mistress that she held to her Virginia master; s<
that in spite of the laws of New York-in spit
of the peculiar atmosphere of the city of isms
and in the very smoke and dust of the under
ground railroad, she lived and died the property
of our most excellent and benevolent lady
friend.-N. Y. Paper.
HoW THE CZAR's DEATH BECAME KNowN.
The Queen Dowager of Holland is the late
Czar's sister. Her Majesty wished that the news
should be kept secret, but in the first burst o
her grief she involuntarily communicated the
loss she had sustained to the persons about her
and at once it spread like wildfire-the livi
thunder leaped along the wires to Berlin, Parit
and London-nnd ere those eyes, before whici
sixty millions of serfs were wont to quail, were
fixed in their sockets, Lords Clarendon ant
Puilmerston were communicating the news t<
the House of Lords and Commons, some tw<
or three thousand miles distant.
THE Mississippian says that $10,000 have

THE LATE ZEBULON RUDULPH.
This worthy gentleman was of German extraction
on his father's side and Welsh on his mother's. His
pateinal grand-father, Michael Johannes, was born or
the Prussian part of the Rhine, and served seven years
in the army of Frederic the Great.
Removing to America, with his wife Anna, lie set
tied at Elkton, Maryland, where his son, Jacob, was
burn, Sept. 8, 1726. Jacob Rudulph, by a seconc
marriage with a lady of Welsh origin, (whose maiden
name was Jacob,) was the father Zrbulon Rudulph
the subject of this notice,-born at Elkton, Jan. 30
From 1ichael Johannes, down, the family were al
tenacious of the splelling and prontinciation of thi
name, with the letter u in the second syllable. not o
-Michael Rudulph, so distinguished in the America
Revolution, as a Captn in Lee's Legion, was a sop
of Jacob by his first marrIage-half brother to Zebu
lon. and a little more than twelve years older than he
Zubulon Rudilph commenced business on his oiwi
account, as a merch:ent and miller at Elkion, in 1794
In 1797 lie was married to Abby Mlarray, of Philadel
phia, a lady most honorably connected there; and ii
1798 they removed to Camden, S. C. From that place
they removed to Columbia. S. C. in 1811-to Edge
field District in 1821, and to Lowi des County, Ala. il
The greater part of his ear'y life %as spent in th
profession of a merchant ; lie settled a plantation, how
ever, on the Congaree in 1813, and fron, that time til
the close of his lone life, lie continued to inte.est him
self, personally, in the hesiness of farming. His firm
profession of religion was in 1806, under the ministr
of the Rev. Dr. Andrew Flynn. A few weeks afte
joining the Presbyterian Church in Camden, he wa
made an Elder of that church. In this capacity, Mtw
he served the Presbyterian Church itt Columbia, anti
his change of denomination. Whilst residing in Co
lumbi.a it became a question in his church whethe
the children of those who are not themselves member
of a church are entitled to baptism. Resorting to th
I scriptures for facts and arguments to settle this ques
Stion, 'r. Rudolph was surprised to find the scripture
entirety siletnt on the supsject of the baptism of infari
children ; and, after long and prayerful enquiry, h
was led to embrace Baptist .yws. With olier adlul
members of his family, lie wias baptized in May. 182(
Soon after he was elected a Deacon of the lied lBan
Baptist Church, Edigefield District, and lie also serve
as a Deacon the Baptist Church ont Ash Creek, nea
thse place of his late residence. Ini religion, Mir. Rtu
cdulphs was eminn-tly a man of prayer and faith ; hi
c-onversatioin an i letters invariably taking a rel glon
Iturn, and his whole inifluence, public and private, he
ing" ever itn favor of decided, scriptural anid earne~s
pciy In at the qualities of a judicious, well-bialari
cdmind, and in those which constitute a truly .oo
aduseful man. Mr. Rudutlph was excelled .by fewv
and such was tihe universal estimate of him where I,
Iwas known, that lie was always a marked man
every circle he entered. To go ~nto particulars, migli
he interesting to survivors and instr..ctive to the young
*but it wotuld seem too much like the language oif pane
Igyric to be wvelcomne to asensibility refined atd modes
