THE SUCCESS OF THE ATJJES.
The Paris correspondent of the National In
telligencer, remarks that the avidity with which
the recent successes of the allies have been
seized upon in Paris and England, and made to
minister to the gratification of national vanity,
proves how sorely national vanity is wounded
by the limited success which has crowned their
eight months' gigantic efforts in the Crimea.
The correspondent remarks the studied and per
sisting silence of the. Monileur. the government
organ, concerning the loss of the French in the
attacks of the nights of the 22d and 23d, on the
Russian advanced works. It is believed that
the French losses are not so very " much- smal
ler" than the Russians; an:i that, in fact, they
are in large and unfavorable disproportion to
the value of the success which they have pur
" It was, no doubt," says the correspondent,
a most gallant and heroic affair; but does it
weaken the defence of Sebastopol? Was not
the capture of the post necessitated by consid
erations connected with the defence of the allies
themselves in their own entrenchments, rather
than with that of the besieged fortress? Was
not' the success purchased at fearful, almost ru
inous cost-like the other victories of Alma,
Balaklava, and Inkerman ? Will they be able
to keep, have they kept, the post they so gal
lantly conquered ? We remember that only a
few weeks ago another similar advanced post of
the Russians was stormed in the most glorious
manner by the Zouaves; but the victors, after
driving in the Russians, were unable to retain
possession, for the place was swept by Russian
cannon on the battlements of Sebastopol. In
like manner, I apprehend, the recent success
in front of bastions Nos. 5 and 6 will be founi
to count but little towards the capture of Se
bastopol. In fact, it is confidently stated that,
previous to the resignation of Gen. Canrobert,
at the time of the last suspension of the allies'
bombardment, the generals chiefs of the artille
ry and engineer departments, officially informed
the Commander-in-Chief that their science, skill,
and power had done their worst against Sebas
topol and were exhausted, and the Commander
in-Chief must henceforth ask success from other
instruments than theirs.
"1I cannot, therefore, calm and disinterested,
but not indifferent looker on as I am, allow my
self to consider, as most Frenchmen are doing,
in view of this gallant affair of outworks, the
fall of Sebastopol as near at hand. If this little
episode in the siege, the attack of an incidental
out-post, built in one night and tequiring two
to conquer, has cost a loss of life that the con
querers recoil from announcing, what may be
expected from the recital of the grand poem, the
storming of Sebastopol itself, in face of its
twelve hundred pieces of artillery, its thirty
thousand bayonets, its barricaded streets, and
its system of internal defence, converting every
house into a fort? Imagination siekens over

A cherished friend, " of infinite jest," transmits his

GEN. GREEN AND HIS ARMY.
W E hear of depredations in every quarter by this
distinguished enemy of the Growing Crops. There is
a likelihood however that he will be pretty generally
discomfitted at an early day. Some few instances
there may be (about 71 miles down the Columbia road
for one) in which the victory shall be his. But in the
main the rout of his troops will be as complete as could
be expected under the circumstances. A subscriber
in the Mount Willing neighborhood speaks of the con
fiet as a somewhat doubtful one in those parts. We
wish him a safe deliverance. "There is now," he re
marks, " an attempt at an armistice between the Gen
eral and ourselves in order to give us time to gather
our oats; but, like Santa Anna, he violates all truces

intelligence and skill, on every side, which ought to
be brought together for purposes of mutual advantage.
And an Agricultural Society, as proposed in to-day's

brother farmers; be up and doing. Here is a highly
commendable Dist rict undertaking which appeals to

CORN PROSPECTS--PRICE OF FLOUR.
A few more weeks of seasonable weather will en
sure to the country an enormous crop of corn. From
every part of this State, of the Southern States, and
in fact of the Union at large, we are ini receipt of the
most gratifying intelligence. The like was scarcely
ever known. In anticipation of an overwhelming
harvest, old corn is falling rapidly in price. It comt
manded In Augusta, but three weeks ago, one dollar
and thirty cents per bushel. Ninety cents is now the
top of the market, and the price is still giving way
daily. Some think it will fall to sixty cents within the
next month. There is a reason for this, separate from
he bright p: ospect of the current year-it is the utt
xpected fine yield of the oats and wheat crops. A
friend, writing to us from one of the upper Districts of
ur State, says that farmers there "are endeavoring
to engage f lour at eight dollars aud a half per barrel,
to be delivered at the railroad, but that very few such
bargains had been effected." He adds (and it may be
relied on) that "the general belief among buyers is
that there will be plenty at air dollars." All this is
highly cheering. The "good time a coming" (and
which we have been so long hocping to see) is at our
very doors, thanks to the Great G'.ver !'
A FAITHFUL CONTRACTOR.
We learn that Capt. RtcaAtno WARD, of this Dts
trict, who has been for a long time a mail contractor
n several routes in South Carolina, has just termina
ed is connection with the Columbia and Edgefleld
ine. This cConnection was of thirty yemr standing ;
and during all that time, as we are informed, scarcely
a single failure has occurred. While we have no
doubt of the new contractor's ability to manage the
business properly, we yet regret to see the Captain
leaving this old accustomed post after so long and so
faithful a discharge of its duties.
Tits is the season for pic-nics and fishing frolics in the
ountry; and our young people in various parts of the
District are making use of it as they should. We hear
of sundry little affairs of the kind, some over, some
yet to take place. It is pleasant to know that the
young world around are enjuying themselves, even
though one is prevented from participating. There
is an indicativenass of life and h~ealthm and fine feeling
aout it that no good man can observe without satis
faction. Why raise the finger of caution and reproof
to dampen these innocent delights of youth! Why
stop them in thte midst of those pleasures so natural to
the glow of young blood, to tell them that all is vani
ty ! Why hush up their gushing laughter with a ho
tally upon the Ills that await them and which must, ere
long, be encountered ! All this they will learn time
enough. For the present-the happy present--let
them "gather their rose-buds." As the inimitable
Taoas Gaav has written,
" But ah ! why should they know their fate !
Since sorrow never comes too late
And happiness too swiftly flies.
Thought would destroy their paradise
No more ! Where ignorance is bl iss
'Tis folly to be wise !"
Tuz Lexington Telegraph makes thte following be
nevolent offir :
O Ys! O Yus!!--As we desire every citizen of
the District should read the " Telegraph,' any person
who is not truly able to pay for it, we will with pleas
uresend it to him gratis.
Say not after this that newspaper publishers are de
ictent in the milk of human kisdness. Thie only
law to be found in this proposition is, that it is very
questionable whether twenty men could be found in
South Carolina who would come forward and ac
knowledge thatthey were. not able to pay the little
sum of P2 per annum for a decent and Interesting pa
per. Suppose that, in lieu of this uncertain charity,
we adopt the plan of sending a few copies weekly to
our poor-houses, jails, asylums, &o. Would it not
evince more actual humanity? .

TE offloers of this society extend a cordial invita
tion to sister societies throughout the State to make

OUR STUMBImING BLOCK.
WILL the South unite to withdraw herself and her
institutions from the ruthless interference of her Nor
thert' confederates! Will she concentrate her powers
upon some movement which shall have for its object
Southern Rights and Southern Prosperity under a
Southern Government? Or will she clingto the Unjon.
as it is, preferring its unequal burdens, snd the insults
of unscrupulous majorities, to the proudionsciousness
of being free and unfettered ? It would seem natural
that but one reply to these interrogatories, unqualified
and unmistakeable, should spring from every South
ern heart: that reply is, " Let us unite-Let us be
free." And such, we believe, would be the response
of our section at this time, but for the prejudices of
party rancor and the shackles of- party tactics which
exist among us. In South Carolina, we sometimes
wonder at the influence thus exerted upon the course
and bearing of our several Sister. States. Because,
free from the divisions which distract them, we can
not fully appreciate the might of. this influence. But
that it has been felt continually, and is felt now to the
serious delay of that grand Southern rally,which alone
can place us high and dry upon the rock of political
safety, does not admit of doubt. This party spite and
these party trammels, it becomes us to abjure and re
nounce. They are the stumbling-block in our path
way, and have begotten in many quarters a degree of
enmity among those who should be brothers, which
seriously threatens to make Southerners the instru*
ments of crushing Southerners. Whiggery and De
mocracy, in their hatred of each other, behold not
that great and common enemy so steadily engaged in
effecting their common degradation. In their hot con
tests for local and mere partizan success, they become
blinded .to the truth that every such success but in
creases the infatuation of the victcrs and the bitter
ness of the vanquished, thus driving them all togeth
er nearer and nearer that gulf of national abominations
which stands gaping to receive its victims. Virginia
and Georgia may be pointed to as demonstrating at
this moment the truth of these reflections. In the first
of these States, a difficult contest is just over, in which
her people were fiercely arrayed against each other
-the one party fighting under the banner of the Na
tional Democracy, the other under an equally Nation.
al flag in which the colors of Whiggery and Ameri
canism were strangely blended. Is not.Virginia, as a
consequence of these exciting differences, further to
day from unanimity at home on Southern grounds than
she was before this contest begun ? In Georgia, a
similar battle is now progressing. We see the animosi
ty of one National party against another increasing
daily. Heart-burnings and feuds are its certain con
comitants. At the end of this warfare (whoever
shall be successful) is it not clear that these home dis
sensions will have done their work and that the chan.
ces of uniting Georgians upon any platform for'South
ern security will have become more hopeless perhaps
than ever ? The evil is incurable so long as National
party organizations are adhered to by the people of
the South. For just so long will the demon of Discord
find ample ma:erials to work upon amid the confirmed
political prejudices of the old parties and the wild her
esies of the new.
We are amiong those who hope that this view of our
difficulties is becoming evident to Southern intelli
gence and that it will at no distant day be acted upon
by Southern patriotism. This hope we base upon the
improving tone of the Southern people, as manifested
within the last few months by the press of our section,
and upon the palpable fusion of the several Northern
wings of our National parties-which fusion, having
its origin in a common hatred of Southern slavery,
must and will startle the South into action. We are
awarethat there is yet, with many democrats of-the
South, a disposition to believe that the remnant of
their party at thre North (which hasatood firm) should
be fostered and encouraged by a wvarnm support from
the party South. Some, indeed, affect a large degree
of confidence and tell us that this gallant remnant is
yet to leaven the whole lump of Northern politics to the
final salvation of the Union on Constitutional grounds.
Such is thre tone of tihe papers at Washington
and of sundry regularly employed Administration
shets in a lower latitude. But it is vain to dupe thre
country with any stuch hollow hopes. Tire fact is too
prominent, that tire North is nearly as one man in op
position to the equality of tire Southern States in the
Unign. The evidence is too- strong, that .Whiggery,
Democracy and Americanism are alike inveterate and
implacable upon tihe question of Southern servitude.
Unless thre Soth shall stretch forth her own right
handand trust in herself alone for help, sire is to be
overwhelmed and disgraced before tire world. And it
is this earnest conviction wich causes urs to detest all
exisant party organizations and to urge some new
combination, wich, whrile it shall be avowedly see
tional in its cast, may yet prove an Ark of safety to
our whrole counrtry.
THE ANTI-KNOWV NOTING ARGUMENT
WiviuiN the last month we have presented our read
ers with tire "Speech of Hlon.'A. H. Svaruaxs" and
" Three Letters" addressed to Hon. A. P. BUTLI.E by
a writer whose name is not given to the public. To
our view, the two documents. together make up an ar
gument against the New Order sufliciently convincing
to determine every fair and reflecting mind. We re
gret to have heard tire objection thrown out, that tire
second letter, of thre " Three" we have givenr,smacks
too strongly of Cathelicity. This is entirely errone
ous. We selectied the letters, to some extent, because
of tire mildness, courtesy and fairness which charac
teised tis very portion of thnem. They breathe no
spirit of intolerance-no bigot prejudices. The ques
tin of Roman Catholic interfe.rence with the Civil
anthorities of earth is broached in the necessary prose
cution of the argunment. It courld not have been avoid
ed. But thre tenets of that Church (other than those
which bear upon this particirlar point), the creed of
that Church, its merits or demerits, its purities or im
puritics. are neither discussed nor alluded to. How
then, any enlightened and liberal reader could have
conceived tire notion that tire argument is objectiona
ble because of too mutch Catholicism, we cannot easi
ly understand. rThe pity is,-(and we here speak in tire
best spirit imaginable,) thrat many otherwise good Pro
testants are too much under the inrfluence of a rabid
enmity against the Chrurchr of Rome to admit thrat any
thiggood can come out of it. Tire justification some
times offered in tis connection, that suchr enmity is
engendered by tire still more bitter htostility of Catho
lis against Protestants, is of but little avail " in foro
couscientie," and still less whren subjected to the test
of thrat Religion whichr teaches men to "love their en
emis." It wotuhd he far better, we respectfutlly mug
gest, if both Protcstants and Catholics would learn
some charity towards each othrer, at least so muchr as
might enable threm to see each other's names in print
without abrhorrece.-But we are perhaps saying more
ttan tire occasion calls for. Yet to say nothing,when
our selections are unjustly animadverted upon, is not
oir habit, especially whcn (as in this case) those se
lections exhnibit sound views, while they are at the
same time marked by candor and an honest desire to
expose the wrong.
AN APPOSITE TEXT.
Some of tire Democratic journals in Virginia are
very facetious in their remarks upon their victory, and
one says that "Sam's" funeral sermon is to be preach
ed from the following text:
" For we are but of yesterday, and know-nothting,
because our days upon' earth are a shadow."-Job,
chap. 8, verse 9.
So true is it that the Bible, like Shakipeare, con
tains something for every possible ease. To illustrate,
a preacher In England once desired to attarck certain
tall head-dresses then in fashion among the ladies. He
soon found the verse--" Let those upon the hrouse top
not come dot,"and tire last four words,withr the slight
prefix of a k to the second, made his text. The quo
tation from Job though, fits the case of the Know No
things without straining or interpolation.
AN EDITOR'S OWN DRINK.
TEa following recipe for " an editdr's own drink"
was given to the world by tire " Kentuckian" and is
declared to be the favorite lpotation of.McGoonwtN,
tre notorious man of tire " Paducah American."

OLD DIAlA1S MESSAGE.
-Soatx years ago, a gentleman of this place sold intc
freedom an old negro woman named DIANA Baooxs
She was taken to New York,' where she has since
been living. Having been purchased and made fret
by the charity of a certain citizen of that State whc
knew her mother, it is toibe supposed that the same
charity has continued to extend to her the necessaries
of life ; and we may conclude that she occupies al
least a medium position among her fellow-blacks o
the North, whether in point of comfort or respectabil.

says: " Tell 'em all" (meaning her former fellow-ser

poor old creature felt every word she uttered and tha
she would joyfully come' back to her cosy kitchen
chimney corner at the South, if she knew how to of
fect it and had the means of doing so.
No Southerner can pass thro' the North without be

visit we ever made to New Yt rk, an occurrence whic
took place upon our landing at one of the wharves o
that wealthy metropolis. Tyre was, as usual, at the
time, violent competition among the hackmen for the
custom of passengers. With the rest, an unlucky ne
gro was pressing forward to reap (if possible) sum
small share of the day's earnings ; but in doing so, b
happened to interfere slightly with tihe chances of
whie driver. Immediately the butt of the white man
whip was turned and the negro lay bleeding beneatl
the feet of the crowd, uncared-for and trampled or

A gain:-we were strolling once after night-fal
through the streets of Utica, and got lost, as we sup
posed, at some distansce from sour hotel. Hurryini
along, we ubserved an old negro man plying this wood

Of course we do not deny but that there may be

FOR THE ADVZATIetR.
MR. EDIoa :-In the editorial columns of your
last issue I notice a paragraph under the charmingly
unique and sentimental caption, "Poetry ads Squash
es," in which you :express great gratitude to a val
ued friend of my own for a " mess" of the esculent,
and a sort of dubious comment on the relative mer
its of the spontaneous emanations from the brain of
an humble worshiper at the shrine of the muse and
a vegetable coaxed into existence by the daily la
bors of a sooty son of Ethiopia. - Now, be it-recol
lected by yourself, Mr. Erroa, that although
through the kindness and laudable pride of th.l
donor of the squashes, you enjoyed a dish tender
and delicious, yet it was but the product of the soll,
nurtured by the old gardener, while the effusions
which my too prejudiced mind soothes itself into
the belief sounds like poetry, are the offspring of
my own brain. Now, how you could imagine that
there could exist, even among my own weak-mind
ed,.soft headed, easily flattered sex, two ladies, who
could feel and nurture a jealousy toward each other,
when the subject for rivalry was poetry and squash
es, is more than I can account for.
I will confess in all humility that we are easily
duped. but think, nevertheless, the fact very obvi
ous, that your tirade wis gotten up for no other
purpose, than to coax from my friend Mrs. B., who
raised such nonpareil vegetables, a liberal supply of
(I would say" garden sap," as the Yankees do, but
that the echo to the ear is not agreeable,) her vege
tables for the gratification of your epicurean appe
tite. Of course you knew that, if a spirit of rivalry.
was engendered by your challenge, the squashes
were much easier come at than ideas from a brain
encumbered with the cobwebs of every day life ;
and so you would secure a quota of the good things
from Mrs. B., and still keep clear of a super-abun
dance of milk and water poetry from me. Fie !
Fie ! Mr. EDITOR! Such a piece of skillful general
ship ! As to the influence over myself of the green
eyed monster in all his odious ferocity, allow me
here and ever to disavow all loyalty to a tyrant so
malignant. For of all the weakne'ses of humanity
I look upon rivalry, and its consequence jealousy,
to be among the most abject and despjcnbe-wheth
er in the domestic relations between lawyer and his
brother lawyer, physician and his brother physician,
poetaster s'nd housekeeper, or any thing else. I
contend that the world is wide enough for us all,
why then should we envy each other ?
In conclusion, Mr. EDITOR, you wind up with the
" And thus the poetry, and the squashes, and
Rose Cottage, and Mrs. B., and the printers. and
the Editor and the paper, and all," (which means of
course his Satanic majesty and all his imps,) " will
pull together like a company of horses in Pharoah's
f Is not that perfectly beautiful? Indeed we would
make a showing out. We would out BARNUM, the
t mermaid, the wooly horse, the Aztec children, Cali
f fornia cedars, baby shows, Jenny Lind and all other
humbugs gotten up for the benefit of the credulous.
After acknowledging the indebtedness of Mrs.
B. and myself for your unqualified flattery, I bid
you good evening, hoping that your appetite imay
not fasg so as to prevent your enjoyment of all the
delicacies heaped upon you by my sister housekeep
ers, nor your love for the beautiful blunted so as to
disable you from appreciating all the rich and glow

A BEACE OF ANECDOTES.
Mla. Enrroa :--Permit me to discharge my week
ly debt to you with two anecdotes that occur to me
this morning. You have doubtless known in the
world of fashion nmany persons who while afe~cting
taste in musionl matters, evinced an utter want of all
real appreciation by gross inattention, on rare musi
cal ocensions. There is a story told of a famous
German which points to-this defect in listeners, and
the manner in ~which one of high culture and re
fined sensibilities reproved it. Let me denominate
A MUSICA L REVENGE.
IivAN, the celebrated composer, when in Lon
don, was not a little piqued at the dull insensibility
Iof some of his auditors, who during the excution
Iof his finest symphonies were sometimes observed
unapping. He resolved to give a hint of his displeasure
through the medium of music itself. Fur this pur
pose lhe composed a piece under the title of a Turk
ish symphony, which, beginning in a soft lulling
style, soon set a portion of the company nodding,
when a simultaneous burst of the cymbals, double
Idrums,trumpets, etc., broke their bonds of sleep asoun
der. 'This object was no sooner efeicted, thian bin~king~
gain into a tender murmiur, the orchestra soon re
newed its astounding fortissimo, and nignin roused
them like a peal of thunder. These alterations of
Isoothing softness and startling crashes were repent
e d till the alarmed 'sleepers, finding they could not
close their eyes in security, determined to remnain
fawake and listen to the music wvhich they had af
feted to come to hear.
Without pretending that there is any connection
between the foregoing incident and the one which
follows-further than that Hlavo4 and the bird
were musicians, and the sleepy auditors and the old
woman behind the bar equally obtuse-I will pro
e eed to fill out the measure of nmy letter-sheet ; and
tthis time, I beg to offer a remarkable instance of
THE LOYALTY OF A BIRD.
LtJord P., an English nobleman, paid his addesses
to a lady- who was fond of biras. She had seeni
and heard a fine Canary bird at a Coffee house near
5Charing Cross, and entreated him to get it for her.
The owner of it wvas a widowv, and Lord P. offered
to buy it at a great price, which she refused. Find
ing there was no other means of obtaining the bird,
he determined to change it ; and getting one of the
same color, wvith nearly the same marks, but which
happened to be a hen, lhe wvent to~ the house. The
mistress usually sat in a room behind the bar to
which lie had easy access. Contriving to send her
out of the way, he effected his purpose, changed
the birds, and soon after her return, took his leave.
He continued however to frequent the house te
avoid suspicion, but forbore to say any thing of the
bird until about two. years after, when, takig ocea*
sion to speak of it,'lie said to the landlady, " I would
have bought that bird of you, but you refused my
money for it-I dare say you are by this time sorryv
for it." " Indeed, sir," said she, " I am not ; nor
would *I now take any sum for it; for, would you be
lieve it I from tho time that our good King (James
aII., to abdicated in 1688) was forced to go abroad
hand leave us, the dear creature has not sung a note."
ICOMPLIXENTAEY TO HON. P. 8. B00ES.
The Laurensville Herald in noticing the ex.
amination at Cross Hill Schools, in that Distriet,
'thus notices the address of Col. Daoozcs, deliver
"ed on that occasion.
After the school exeroises, Hon. P. S. Brooks
ws veannounced, who addressed the assembly in
one of the most able discouraes, on the subject
oof education, we have ever had the pleasure of
listening to. Unlike too many of the addresses
at school examinations, it wvas dignified, practi
cl, and abounded in points of eloquence and
magnanimous thought. -.We feel conftidenit every
heart present heat approving response to each
sentiment he uttered. Never shall we forget
him when he portrayed the affection of the mo
ther for her child, and when, at the death of
'that child he repeated, "It had fallen into its
SFather's arms, who had taken it to a botter
world, that its mother might be induced to fol
Slow it there." We are sorry that circumstances
would not permit.Mr. B. to publish his address
as we aro satisfied that its. perusal would have
afrdedrat nleane to our re.nders.
WHO ARE TEE AGEBZBBORS.
- The Boston Post, a journal which, in the-hot.
bed of abolition, stands almost alone in its vin.
dication of the constitutional rights of the South,
quotes the following from that accomplished
gcholar, careful observer, and true. man, Rev.
Dr. Adams of Boston. In his South Side View
of Slavery, among other passages-of like import
is the following:
" What had the South done to injure us, ex.
cept t'hrough our sensibilities on the subject of
slavery? What have we done to her, but ad
monish, threaten, excommunicate her, stir up
insurrection among her slaves, endanger her
homes, make her Christians and ministers odious
ja other lands."
* * * * * * *
"What has sl'e ever done, except in self-de.
fence, in our long quarrel, which, upon reconcilia.
tion, would rankle in our memories, and make it
hard for us to forgive and forget? Postively
not one thing. We have been the assailants,
she the mark ; we the prosecutors, she the de.
fendant; we the accusers, she the self denying
This is a fair and just statement of the ease.
How could it be otherwise ? What motive has
the South for aggressions upon the North 1
How could she extend slavery to the free States,
if she would, and what would she gain by it it
she could? The very word Abolition tells the
whole story, and gives the true position of the
two sections. Abolition! Abolition of what1
Of slavery. Of Southern institutions. The
North has no institutiont that the South wishes
to abolish. Of course, then, in the language of
Dr. Adams, " they are the assailants; the South
the mark; they the persecutors, she the defen
dant; they the accusers, she the self denying
Yet, as the Boston Post tiu'y says, these
men, leaders of this abolition crusade, have the
audacity to denounce the South as the aggres.
sors, and to insist that this spirit of aggresion
is so predominant among Southern politicians
that any honorable union or co-operation
with them by any Northern party is idle. They

epittles, and thousand other slang phrases, every
honest and upright Northern man (and there are
still multitudes of such) who raises his voice is
behalf of the Constitution and of equal justice
to all sections. France, in the bloodiest day:
of its first Revolution, was -never cursed with
enemies more dangerous to the peace, good or
der and happiness of society, than the miscreants
who are fanning the flames of abolition fanati,
cism in the North, and laboring day and night tc
dissolve the Union and kindled the flames of
insurrection and civil war.-Richmond Despatch
GREAT SURGICAL OPERATIo.-One of the
most hazardous operations known to surgeon:

had been growing two years, rendering her life
an intolerable burden. It had become attachei
