SYRACUSE, N. 1.,-JulyI6:
MaI teco -I have just arrived at the City'ol
ist, Almy tour in Canada West, and am just
enjoying a full-" panorama" (as Pat would say,) ol
God's own'country. Edgefleld District, thrnigh-the
columns of. the." Adiertiser,'-the first number l
have seen since I left Carolina. You may. guess i
is quite a treat in these far-off regions to- get the
passing events of the'day in our District so fully
presented' to us. Though we are over twelve hun
dred miles'distant, we are at home when we pore
over the news of the " Advertieer"
I have been conversing with Queen Vie's sub
jects a few weeks, and they aire quite sanguine about
the Eastorn War and their foster mother's ultimate
success. Upper Canada is making rapid progrem
In agriculture. Farmers- ase felling the- stubborn
oaks df the .forest with fire and steel. They are an
nihilating the 'wilderness, that the noon-day sun
- may smile on the new-born fields of grain instead of
on the gloomy forest thatso lately defeated his efforts
to warm the sod. Hundreds of acres, that were
covered with huge ilmbert'o years ago,' are now
sending forth luxuriant crops. We went out through
those parts that are bounded on the South by Lake
Ontario and were well paid for: our toil on behold
ing the glowing -prospects of the crops. On every
aide were to be seen copious fields of wheat,, oats,
rye and potatoes. If no unforseen destroyer blights
the proinise, otkr Canadian neighbors will shipa vast
quantity of provisions ; for ther never had such
crops or such a quantity of seed in the ground.
The country as far as I have seen is broken ; one
hillock looms top after another aid forms a continu
ns succession of plains and mounds. Some of
these mounds break of very abruptly, forming a
cene like appearance at thetop-but on the sides of
the most abrupt the traveler will find a verdant
vegetation.' -On the road between Rochester and
Syracuse, N. Y., the crops are mnaturing fast and
promise an abundant -yield, with the single excep
tion-of Bern. .ikis rather poor, owing, no doubt, tn
the late cold rains-but on the slopes of. the hills it
ie making considerable progress, and' the low-lying
grounds may spring up under July's sun ; but there
cannot be an average crop of cornin this 'part of the
country, as most of the formers have plowed a por
tion'of it up and 'sowed buckwheat in its place.
'The liquor mercihants of New York in some e
the towns and villages are getting the Maine Law
eficiently ladled out to them. In Syracuse and
Rochester several arrests for drunkenness have been
made, and in most instances, the parties fined and
sent to jail. Some of the jails are pretty well oc
.eqpied by'sellers and drinkers of the forbidden ar
ticle. It is recorded that one man took home a
barrel of whiskey, which he left in his wagon over
piglt -Ian the morning he found the bungout and
the barrel empty. As he was in the habit of abusing
his wife whenaie..draink,- it-is surmised that she
executed the "-writ of destiietlon". herself. It is
,also reported thatover si'thousand dollars worth of
iqur-changed hands the day before the law took
effect in. the City of Rochester, to private citizens,
and-mest.of the buyers sere Maine Law advo
eates. As we are opposed to such enactments, and
cannot get a bumper of the " critter" when we are
dry, we must beat our retreat to those States that
are sober withltrzm laws and prohibition. Though
prohibition -does not affect rite as much . as the de
plornble ate of mny pocket; for on-sounding it this
morning, I find myself without, a singledime.

MaaRsa, on the 12th duly, by Rev. W. 'Bodie,
A. R. Aar.a, Esq., and Miss PansDai G'aoar,
both of Edgefield Distriet
DiED, after a short but painful illness, on the
evening of the lth July, at her mother's residence
in Graniteville, Misr NANCY KIRKLAND, aged
19 .years, 1 month and 2 days.
She made a profession of the religion of Christ in
1853 and was baptized into the. fellowship of the
Graniteville Baptist Church, of which she continued
an exemplary member till the day of her death.
This young lady possessed naturally an amiable
disposition, and by the grace of God, that meek and
,quiet spirit, the price of which is above rubles. Thus
gifted of Heaven she could -not fail to gain the es
teem and confidence of all who knew her.
The writer of this brief notice eo'ld but exclaim,
as he saw her former friends and' associates gather
around her dying bed, to smooth her pillow, and' as
far as -mortal hands can asistin bearing the depart
ing saint's desponding spirit up in death's tremen
dons hour, pour consolation into the bleeding heart,
" Behold how they loved her!" Sh, is gone. and
never more shall we meet her in the sanctuary of
God, in the family circle, or as we k by the way.
S" Dearestsister thou hast left u0,
Here thy loss we deeply-feel
But 'tis God who hast bereft us,
He can all our sorrowsaheal.
"Yet again we hope 'to meet thee,
When the dreams of life are fled ; -
Then in heaven we hope to greet thee,
Where-no farewell tear is shed." S. B.
DIEn, at her residence in Abbeville District, on
Sunday evening the 15th inst., Mrs. Lucinda Mor
ton, widow of Tho'. W. Morton, deceased, in the
64th year of her age.
The deceased left some relatives, and a number
of friends to mourn their loss. But they mourn
not, as those without hope; their departed relative
and friend having been' a regular member of the
BaptistChurch for some twenty-two or twenty
three years. And for four yearsseven months and
one day previous to her decease, had been the con
stant sufferer of a very-painful disease-Paralysis
of which she died, which protracted suffering not
only was well calculated. to discipline her spirit for
ghe abode of Heaven, but was painful'to those who
witnessed' it these several years. And it is indeed
. source of great consolation, that for months after
months, she was not heard to murmur at the ex
tremity of her affliction as unjust, but prayed rather,
" Lord-if it is thy will, take me out of my suffering."
Tlese were her own words not many days before
she was taken. and on occasions previous.
This estimable woman,. out of a once prosperous
offspring of eight children, left behind her but an
only son in delicate health. What was she heard,
then, to say. in review of all this bereavement:
" The Lord gave and the Lord taketh away, blessed
be the name of the Lord." Her last illness continu
ed two weeks and a day,and almost the last I ever
heard her say, was, to repeat two lines of the
" And must this feeble body die,
. This mortal frame decay ?"
her reply was calmly,.yes.
At a subsequent time, and when very feeble in
deed, she uttered in a weak but audible tone of
voice, these four lines:
"Then will my happy sotil
Stretch her wings in haste,
And go to tell
That Jesus has done all things well.
