The 'Greeks condemned to death any man
who probounced thename of him who fired:the
Epheslan Temple. Thirty years ago, to talk of
the dismemberment of this confederacy was
deemed knavery or insanity. There was a si
ered sentiment educated into the hearts and
minds of. yopng men for the preservation of. the
lthion, that displayed itself through their liyes
ad actions. He who talked idly- of the possi
bility of snehan event4 was frowned'down by
thereprobgtion of his fellows, while the grave
,nlaimore-matured shook- their wise heads in
holy horror at. -his sacrilegious sentinients.
Those days have gone. What was a rarity then,
has now almost become a habit. Even newspa
p prate as -glibly of the .dissolution of the
union as they would describe an inauguration
ball ora grand fete in high life. Nor is this
all.. These lucubrations are-not eonfined-to the
journals of any particular section of the country.
We find them in the North and in the South:
in the East and in- the West. We see some
that are characterized by a most unbecoming
tlolence, while others are marked by a not less
at a aing calmness and deliberation. To trace
tofts.usurde this grevious state of things, is no
easy or grateful task. To say when and with
whor it n, and the causes of it, would ex
pose us tot censure of being eectionalist, and
)%,-at. the risk of this, we propose to ourselves
this morning some comment on this subject.
. -We were bred to value the Union of these
Btates above all price, and its dissolution as-the
greatest of all disasters. But this was at a pe
tiod.when, if the rights of the sovereign States
which composed'it had. began to be impaired,
there was yet the *trongest hope that reason,
jutie, aid patriotism, would assert their empire
and crush in the egg-the foul spirit that would
deserate our institutions and throw- back into
chaos the beautiful order which had been struck
fron it by the sages, and patriots, and founders
of the Republic. How. vain that hope has pro.
ven-bow futile all human effort to realize it!
dDon give up the ship," were the noble words
of;ensburagement of one of our gallant cap
tains. Don't give up the Union, until further
effort to save it isdihonor, and the persistance
in wrrong- and outrage upon the rights of the
South~ would makea ber, a. scoff and a by-word
imong~adl the nationsof the earth! Don't give
up the Union, until thie North, bloated with
greed and fanaticism, shall, like the eruel daugh
ters of the old king, continue to abridge the
privileges, to insult the dignity, and to destroy
ibe righits of the South, who has contributed su
larigery to the power, greatness, and prosperity,
of which she is so justly proud.. How near-at
hand thelfearful cons.ummation of this wicked
p~arpose may be, it is not for us to say. We
apprehend,.however, from the signs of .the
timei, that it is not far distant.

Statesinto the Unfoi, are given out as the main
Sobjects-of legislative exertion by the Freesoil
and Abolition' party itt the next Congress!
When we remember that the next House of
Representatives in composed of a very large
number, if not a majority, of this party, we may
not he considered alarmtists, for saying- that they
ure at least making fearful strides towards the
exiecution of their dread purposes. Who shall
inay that. this Union shaoul sand another we
ment after the enactment of such laws?
The institution of'lavery was inaugbratei
into our system when the thirteen States formed
the confederacy under whch we .now live. It
was -inaugurated into it, because in all the
tattes sLavwery was not only recognized, but had
an actual existinuce. If, then, slavery existed in
the. several States which formed the Union ,-and
the riehl of p'roperty' in slaves was-not only not
i ected by the Constitution which they
-aigreed upon, but .absolutely permitted by it,
how-shall they interdict it now, either within sin.
ter States or the Tcrritorieu, the common pro
perty of all the States? In Boston, the Athens
of America, God save thie mark ! it was a com
mon thing to see slave sales advertised i her
philanthropic newspapers! By what authority,
then is the objection to it made now? There is
tiut one source to which, in the- -very nature of
things, we must look for thia authority. That
source is the Constitution. Well, we have but
one -Conatitution from the heginning; and if
tbat Constitution recognized and permitted slave
ry, where is the power aboce the Constitution,
-that shall contravene it? Abolitionists may:
bneak the Constitution1 if they have 111e power
-so may thie armed bandit take the treasure
from a defenceless traveller-but, until that in
stfument is destroyed, we have as much right to
our slave property as they hanvi to any species
of their own. A new constitution might be
framed, which, taking the place of thie present
one. wou'd interdict slavery in States and Ter
ritories; but then a new -union must be-formed,
:and the States .becoming parties to it would.
hay.. a right to go in or stay out of it, wJali this:

t is the case now ? Simply, that coming
inte'the Union, with this privilege guaranted
them -by the common instrument that binds;
them, they are, by an ex post facto enactment,
prohibited from- the enjoyment of this privilege.
IThere was no limitation upon this subject speci

EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1855.
OUR ADVERTISING PATRONS.
Tie best thanks we have to offir are tendered to all
of them. Next week we propose- to allude to each
oils of them in the proper way.
WE are informed that Mr. HUGH Duirts, a respec
table old citizen of our' District, came to his death
recently in.the following unlucky manner: He left
his residence on Thursday-the 23d August, .and .nbth
ing was seen or heard of him untiltbe-Sunday follow.
ing when he waa found, near Bethany Church, in an
old field gully, himself and horse both dead. The
horse was blind and, it is supposed, stumbled and fell
into the ditch, carrying the old man along with hm.
Tas readers's. attention is directed to a card in
another column addressed " To the Public," in re
gard to a horse and buggy lately found in thje woods
near the Old Wells. 'The circumstances of the affair
are a little inexplicable at present.
-WHAT WE SAW.
HAVING been absent for a couple of weeks on a
visit to the up-country of our State, it will be expec'
ted of us to indite something thereto appertaining.
We shall acordingly proceed to speak in Chapter I.
with all possible brevity of what we saw.
First and foremost we saw five miles of the worst
road in South Carolina, between Edgefield Court
House and Mrs. Dr. Niceor.soN's. From her residence
on to Ninety Six, the highway wasina condition which
spoke very well for the pride and public'pirit of those
of our fellow citizens who I ave at in charge.
We saw the little Rail Road village of Ninety Six,
which appeared 'to be in about -the same condition it
was this tie last year-no .better, no worse. Mr.
WALKERa, the inn keeper of the place, accomodated
us'foranight ith a degree of kindness and consider
ation for which we must return our thanks. -
We saw the Greenville and Columbia Rail Road
.with all its appurtena'nces of carn, depot., turnouts,
et cetera. .Some officious individual a year or two ago,
impressed us with the idea that this road was well
nigh worthy~ef a place in the -category of hiumbug.,
that it wver badly built, badly managed and afforded
thie most uncomfortable description of riding. Prson
al experience, which is a very-good thi:ig to be guided
by occasionally,~ rtas taught us quite the opposite of
.hess impressions. The nonstruetion of the read, its
~'adjunci's, its direction, the comfort-of its cars and the
Inoothness of their running, appear to usgpbout-as
domxendable as ondthe majority'of Rail Rcads: Th&
eatighouses too upon the line are spoken of In high
terms, especially the cne kept by Dr. CAL.HOUN at
Greenwood, The country through which this road
passes from Ninety Six to Greenville fell much beloW our
preconceived estimate. It is decidedly poor and unInter
esting, except perhaps where the valley of the Saluda
exhibits occasiona.! spots of low-ground fertilty.-ln
connection with the Greenville and Columbia Itoad
we should not omit to mention that one of the pasen
gertraln conductors is a praiseworthy youIng citizen
of'our District, a son of old-Mr. VAN' MEDL.OCK whom
some of our readers wvell remember. We heard young
MEDL~OCK spoken of as an industrious, polite and effici-.
We saw fine crops of born from Edgefield to Ninety
Six and pretty good crops, considering the land, from
Ninety Six to Greenville. The cotton- all the way
seemed to be rather weedy. It was as. rank-and 'vigo
rous in many places as. the heart could desire, but
vidently hackward--too backward indeed to make any
thing like a full crop unless the approaching fall should
prove a very late one. The fodder everywhere seem
d to be well saved,'and in one or twio places we ob
served the gnod, people at the very pleasant-looking
businesof hay-making. One field in Greenville Dis
trict wvas remarkable- for. its multitude of hay stacks.
We thought at first it must -bc TImothy or some other
f the fancy' grasses, but were informed - by a negro
that it was the "genuine old crab."
We saw an amrazing scarcity of fruit of every kind.
We saw Greenville, the romantic village of the
ountains, wvith her Reedy River Fells, hter Furman
nstitmae build ings, her newv and tasteful Court House,'
her stylish Episcopal Church, her Mansion' House
nd pther hanidsome buildings. We saw her many
plesant suburban residences, her beautiful roads, her
fine mountain prospects, lier brave old oaks and her
mooth green-swards. Greenville is indeed a charm
lg old place, taking her altogether. Some' persons
ere kind enough -to say in our presence that Edge
field was a pretty a village a any in the State. We
cannot think so. True,-our litile place'is neat enough
and clean enough for most sublunary' purposes. But
then we hav'nt got the mountain air, nor those beauti
u undulations of.Mothier .Earth known si mountain
spar, nor- the majestic groves and dashing streams,
all whlich distinguish. Greenviile and her- environs
Greenville is at present however in the act of tranui
tion from a villsge to a town,^wheiher or not to the
ofrt ana pleasure of its inhabitants' we hesitatb
o debide. 'At all events, the rattling ahd fussing
nd general confusion attendant u~pon a Jittle inland
ity become every summer morn palpable. -The ba
sines. prospects of the placd ame said to-be brighitening
rapidly. - Her lotsare gilowing continually in value,
her citizens are making inoney in avery way, and in,
fine, her prosperity is regarded ns a fixed' fact.
, We saw, furthermore, aif -that beautiful but unpro-.
ductive country from Greenville -to Caesars 'Head.
We saw Cmsar's Headi andilExlHAGooD; and from the
top of Csar's Head .toe thought toe'sa one half .of
reation. It is not in'us just at this :itbe'to'-give a de.
ieription of that glorious-scene.. Thes imaginative and
enthusiastic mind of Lamartine himself hould at first
rlnk hack aghast from the tidertilng. Ehat with
he wide spread hoiion towards the South, the Blue
i ge and-Sautda -'Mountain. towards the Nofth anid
East,'the everlasting old Table Rock In. the West
looming up from .amid the neighboring .peaks like a
irttess lit for Jupiter Tonans himself; and -the'ten I
ousand hills and vales and lights and -shadows and
iisti and:Boating.. clouds of -the'vast plain ,below, it -
iinded enough tco fill the-most irreligibus heart with e

road. Judge WADr.AW was on his return home
frem anextra Court at. Laurens. -In regard to the
Presidency of the South Caroline. College, he spoke
in positive terms of declination.
We saw a great many people, dressed in all- their
best, watching the arrival of the Cars at the William
ston Springs.; but as the train tarried only a minute .
or two, we had no tiine to spot any particular one of,
the crowd.' Al of thein however looked very ni&ei
and tidy, .one or -two of -the fellow. indeed rather
At Greenville, we saw'a great maly persont. first
among them we must be allowed to mention our bight
toned and popurar Governor. He wan attinded'by a
Staff of as gallant' Cavaliers. as ever followed a com
mander to the field. Wherever they wept, a chivalric
atmosphere was engeudered.' It was our good foWtune
to belong to a.party In visiting Cesar's Head of which
they were the life and spirit.. We had also with us
R. B. B. Esq., a very talented and a. leading member
of the Fairleld Bar, .Col I. D. W. for along time a1
eocieintreesentative-from the Pee Dee Country in
our State Legislature, and several dashing and hand
some younger gentlemen frem other parts of the coun
try. .Tiere were ladies too in the company, some of
whom might well have figured in a tale of romance.
We will not be charged with fitlsnmenei in this re
mark, after it is known that the '" beauteous belle. of
the Big Pedes," (we quote fttaaIej.. Paav) was one
of our ps rty.
But we saw other persons-well worthy.of. mention
besides those who belonged to that delightful moun
tan party of-durs. There was Col. J.A. A. of Was
camaw, a gentleman who for real politeness, elegant
manners, high cultivation. and liberal sentiments.has
scrcely his superior in South Carolina.-'There too
was Maj.' B,. F. -P. the well known Editor of the
" Southern-Patriot," a man whose rhigh social woili
and graceful hospitality would suffice to cover amoun
tain of such political' sins as he 'stands'cheargeab'le
with in the eyes of some of his good'fellow-citisens of
There also was Col. B.'J. W., the whole-sould ene
my of Know Nothingism and the staunch advocate of
all that Is pure and lovely and. of good reportin South
ern politics. Col. W. is at present a Representative
from Georgetown in the Lower Branch of our Legis
lature and one of the most active, talented and. influ.
ential of the junior members of that body.-And there
too, last but not least, was General WADDY Taour
soN, a thorough-bred gentleman of the old. school, a,
lawyer of ancient repute, a politician- tence prepositi
and a man,-whose soul is still illumined by the mellow
light of other days when an enthusiastic admiration of
the beautiful and sentimental weire as -natural to h's
years.as they liave-ever been to his temperament.
We could speak in- terms the warmest and most
complimentary of a dozen others, ladies as well as
gentlemen, who have been gracing and enlivening the
upcountry with theit presence. But we proceed to
something else. -
WHAT WE HEARD.
A friend remarked to us while absent that for his,
own part, he had heard but twp subjects mooted since
he left home; and these had been. presented to him
again and again in the shape of the two following
interrogatories: let, Are. you % Know Nothing? and
2ndly, Did you go to BILLY Doax's wedding? And,
to say the truth, these were about as prominent topics
of conversation as any. of the-season.
We heard that the wedding was all Major B. F.
Perry-described'it, and that it was. looked for as a
matter of cours that our friend, the Squire, would
purchase some handsome lot in or about Greeneille,
and erect upon it-a beautiful summer residence. But
we really hope the Squire will stick to old Edgefield.
His-liberality can find abundant scdoie for its exercise
int improving and benefitting his native district. Let
his immense treasures he applied in -part to lifting
Edgefield, up before the State, by endowing her
schools and advancing her works of public improve
ment, and the name of Was. B. DoRN wili-be en'grav
en upon her history and the history of 'Carolina for
all time to'come. But let those treasures be frittered
away by too much scattering and saabdtvision, .and
such may nobt hle result. The-ceidy way to make
one's beneficisnce 91.t~.toghe enduring.-good-of- his.
'iellowiu'en ito obncctrats ii'upon -somne one Ioint
and some feiw given- objects. What is done, is then
done thoroughly and well. We speak now of Mr.
Doax only in his character of a public benefactor;
of his private arrangements we of course have noth
ing to say. Yet we must hope and believe he will re
ist all these Greenville tendencies. In fact we doubt
very much whether he haes ever thought of such a
thing as locating-there. We are only giving what
-We heard a good deal-toc of Know N'iothinglsmt in
Grenville. Some said there was a considerable
showing of the order in the District, but others
thoght it was a -great'mistilke. There are undoubt
dly a few about the Court Ilouse. Itis well known
that any sort of an isrn can attach some adherents
i~but a Court House1 -Greenville Court House, wve
mppose, is not unlike the rest of them. But in the
mountry, the .sound and unsophisticated country,
:whether-in Greenville District or any c ther district
in the State) we doubt very much whethie r Know
othingismn will ever -be able to make the leasthead
way. We heard that there were some -Know Noth
ngs also at Spartanburg Court House. It was said
hat an agent of the order was travelling from-Court
iouse to Court House throughout the-.upper . portion
if .the..State for the express purpose of organizing
lodges. The idea seems to be, that it isonly necessa
~y to get a few Court House fellow's interested in the
ause to make it spread like willd.fire. Heaven save
We heard much said about the Spartanhurg dinner
o Col. Oaa. It was at this dinnier that Col. KErrm
ifired with that- gentleman as 'to the propriety of
iouth Carolina joining herself to the National Dem
cracy, in the next Presidential scramble. Col. Otta
naintaned vehemently that she should, do so-; while
3o. KEsrrrpeerred that she shnuld stand by and
ook on in silene, holding -herself prepared to vote
vhen the time came with that quiet and self-posses'sed|
lignity whiohbhas marked her conduct on similar oc-I
siuns inthe past. -A gentleman of high intelligence,
ho is a native of Union and waa present at, this din
er,-gave it to us as his opinion that the sympathies-of
he audierice Ilowedl strongly'with Col. Kurrr. From
11 we have heard, we should - say that Col. Oaa is
yealy mistakcen if.he.expects thus to lead -the State
f South Carolina into the melee of Federal politics.
t suits neither oo-operationists-norsecessionists. The
ndicatous given out by te'lt Charleston Meeting,
omposed as- It was of men of'both these parties,
eleet very trqly the sentiments 'of the people of
iuthi Carolina.- And it was certaintg a hazardous
renture to- denounte' thaat meeting, or rather that
seeting's platform, as-we :hdard.Col. Qaa did.
We heardanuch said of the Rabun Gap Railroad
.dof the great:fiieukties- which lay in the way of
is accompllshmdnt. .It turns out to be a.-work- of
nmense labor and cuan onlj be completed at an im'
tense outlay of sponey. Many- are despairing of iis
ccess in view of the millions that will .ba' stilt re

eal of work has already been done upon the route
o much perhaps to be thrown away. And this will
robably he made the ground of appeal for further aid
rm. alhe State. Other works of magnitude have
en achieved6y the same. line of policy.
Wobave thus writen very briofiy.-and -hastily. of
'vhat woe saw" " whom we saw"., andl what we
card." For the rest,.we miay say generally thafthe
p-counry.is very pleasant thie .presentseason. WiI
andton and Chick's Spthigs have been crdyaded for
imd weeks. AMd we left Greenville, or at least the
ansion-.lIouse, full to overllowing.' Many '-ere

LATE AND IMPORTANT FROM EiO0.
NEWV ORLEAs, August 25. -
The steamship Orizaba has arrived at this
port from Vera Crus, with advices to the 22d
Santa Anna left the city of Mexico on the 9th
instant with an escort, of 2500 men. Two dayc
after, however, seven or eight hundred of them
revolted, killed one or two officers and joined
the insurgents. Santa Anna then ;determined
to abdicate, and embarked on thm 17th instant al
Vera Cruz for Havana.' 'The Alverez platform
has been adopted. General Carriera has been
appointed Provisional President, and Larvega
Commander-in-Chief. All State prisoners have
been liberated. The mob gutted most of the
houses, including that ef Santa Anna's mother.
in:.aw. The appointment of Sig. Vidal as Min
ister' to the'-United States has been revoked.
Sig. Vidal arrived in this city in the Orizaba.
Fuller advices state that Santa Anna left the
city of Mexico under the pretence of quclling a
revolution in Vera Cruz. On the 13th the citi
zens adopted the plan of Ayutla.' The Univer
sal newspaper office and many houses weore de
stroyed. Forty persons were killed and many
wountled by .the military..
Delegnies met in the~City of Mexico on the
16th instant, according to the request. of the
Provisional Government, :ind elected Carriera
for six months, and ordained the freedom of the
Press. Thme statue of Santa Anna was thrown
down by the populce;
MEXco.-The intelligence from Mexico has
been for. some time expected. The curtain has
now finally closed on the political career of
Santa Anna. With a resolute spirit, he could
:ot withstand the course of adverse circum
stances. Without funds or -troops on which he
could rely, he presents the singular.spectaele of
a ruler fleeing a second time fr-om his capital,
and- scekimg personal safety on'foreign shores.
Thus expires, the scheme of building up an Im
perial. Guoerniment, having none of the- muterials
for suech a system,' neither revenues, military
power, or a inobility for .its support. The loy
alty asf the Priesthood, eveni, was doubtful. The
tenur-e ofrpoitical power was too frnil and inse
cure to last beyond' the duration of those artifi
ial resources by which imperialism in Mexico
was propped. A confederated government wvill
now be formed, but whether it iiJ be estab
lished remains amonig the. doubtful results of
the'change.'rThat there is suffioi'ent patriotismj
and ability in thme leaders is less qitestionable
tian that there is that intelligence in the mnass
of the Mexiennus' vhich will enable them to ap
preciate the advantamge4 of such ii system.
EXPUL~tuoN OF THlE GR EE~rS.FRO.1 EaYPT.-We
publish to-dlay a portion of the correspondence
between-our fellow-citizen, Edwin DleLeon, esq'.,
and the Govrnent of Egypt, in relation to the
epulsionv of the -Greeks, 'by order of the Sultan.
Tthe following seems to be thme state of the ease.
Thbe Sultan of Turkey- being .under obliga
tionus to France and England, when the Greek
conspiracy broke out, determined to remove.
from his dominionus all of these people who
happned to be there. lHe gave orders to his
Viceroy to have them ejected from Alexandria
und Uniro,.immnediately. Fifteen days' notice
given to remove themselves, their familiesand
their business. Tliere' was no one to protect
them, and in. their distress they applied to our
Consul for assistance. Mr. DeLeon had some
doubts as to his duty, but decided to attempt
what he ecould. He wrote to Mr. Spencepour
Minister at Constantinople, asking his kind in
terference with the Government of thme'Sltanm.
He also wrote a letter to Mahmoud Bay, which
we 'pubish, .with 'the reply.
.Although discouraged by this, reply, -anud by
the response of Mr. Spence, he had thes sati4se
tiondf having the matter arranged satiisfnetorily
o-the parties. -1t is gratifying to us that Mr.
DeLeon's interposition was a means of advane'
cing the claims of' humanity, and adding- honor.

Am INGE?tOU5 DEviCE.-The Sultan's favoriu

and take the on~e whmom ho could kiss. The
dwarf, like all other men, was ambitious to have
a long' wife. .While the, Sultan's five:hundred
wouen, who knew;h -terms according~ to which
the dwarf was per ed to choose, were laugh
ing at the' nimkin, he went up to one of the
rallist-and handsomest of them, and struck. Ipr
sudden blow on the stomach. She collapsed
ith the pain, and, before she could recover, he
abht lher by the nieck and gave her the dread
dkiss. ' The Stitan kept his-word, and the tall

tor Advertiser contains the following Columbia
One night last week, at the residence of Ro
bert Wilkinson, Esq. tno young men were
sleeping in his piazza, and, a little before day
break they were aroused from their slumbers by
the noise of the dogs in -the front yard. - They'
immediately arose from their bed, and looked in
every direction for the cause of the distutbance,
but could see-nothing. Finally one of them,
who was standing near 'the outer edge of 'the.
piazza, happening- to look downward, discoeied
a large Panther, standing with his fore foot up
on the piazza, and, within about. ten .iniches of
his own feet-his Panthership seemed to be
quite indifferent to what was going' on around
him. Our friend, whose feet stood in so close
proximity to his majesty's paws, being unarmed,
uttered a hasty shriek, and immediately sought
his double-barrel, but upon. drawing .trigger at.
his Panthership the cap exploded without tiring
the gun, and the second barrel being tried, did
likewise; anotherdouble-barrel was in the.mean
time produced, and, provoking to think, both the
treacherous percussions on this gun also failed,
his Panthership still standing with his feet upon
the piazza, quietly witnessing the futile attempts
of his affrighted assailants to take his life ; about
his time however his majesty concluded to take
wider survey of the premises, and descending
from the piazza, he deliberately strode about the
yard for a short time, occasionally slapping over
a dog which might-chance to obtrude a-little too
near his majesty's person, and then returned
to the piazza and resumed his former position;
again, coolly facing his assailants, who, having
taken advantage of the truce afforded by' his
majesty's brief absence, had replenished their
gun tubes with fresh caps, and, upon his return
renewed the assult; fortunately for our friends
their gun fired this time, and his majesty was
slain; he proved to be a male, ani one of the
;argest ever seen in these parts.
Tun LiQUOR LAW ix MAINE.--The Supreme
Court of the State of Maine,sitting at Augusta,
decided on Thursday last, in the caseof John
Hersand, sentenced by a police court to fine and
imprisonment for' selling a glass of liquor, that
under the " Maine law" of 1855, judges of mu
nicipal or police courts or justices of the peace
have no power to impose a fine of twenty dol
lars and imprison a person chargt d with selling
liquor-in violation of that act, which can only.
be done by indictment and trial by jury. The
question came up under a habeas corpus, and
the opinion was delivered by Chief Justice
Shepler. The prisoner was of course dischdrg
ed. The effect of this decision is tocenmpletely
nullify the law, so faras the -manner and form
of its execution has been attempted.
Both the Whig and Democratic State Con.
ventions of Maine -have passed resohdtions de
noncing this law. In the Democratic Conven

he had signed the liquor-bill,a yet:che was now
so well satisfied of the extreme and unjust pen.
alties inflicted by the act, that he woulid never,
if ever placed again in the Gubernatorial chair,
sign ai similar act; but. on .thae contrary, would
do his utmost to obtain the repeal of the pres

set in it. lIe tried t'o sell the same horse and buggy
to Mr. Mlathis, and also to Mr. Miller, both living
