THE CHARTBR OF IARYLAND
Ma. EDITOR --In the foot note to Kent's
commentaries, (1.646,) it is stated that Mr.
Kennedy, (Hon. Jno. P. Kennedy, I presume,)
in his address before the Md. Hist. Soc. in 1845,
bases the claims of Maryland to liberality, not
on Its legislation, but on its charter. I have
made every effort to get a copy of this address,
but It is out of print, and I have not succeeded.
If the note in Kent's Com. represents him truly,
then we have Mr. Kennedy's testimony, that in
all the legis'ation of Maryland, there was noth
ing that established or recognized religious lib
erty. If lie finds all the liberty in the charter,
of. coarse he finds none anywhere else. This
charter came from a Protestant Prince, and not
from Lori Baltimore. So if all the liberality
of Maryland was inits charter. the credit is due
to the British Government, and not to the noble.
man just named. Moreover, if the charter
really did establish religious liberty, the case is
all the worse for Lord Baltimore and his colony ;
for in that case with a liberal charter before
them, they enacted illiberal laws, and by bloody
and barbarous legislation, broke through the
restraints, which a Protestant government had
thrown around them.
It is not the fact, however, that religious
.liberty was established by the charter. Hildreth
speaks truly when he says, that there is not the
slightest hint in that. instrument, of any liberty
not already recognized by the existing laws of
England. (Hild.1.208) such liberty was not
much to boast of, for it-was with refugees from
this, that this continent to a groat extent, was
peopled. But-in order that my readers may
judge for themlves, of the character of this
instrument, I ill quote all of it that bears upon
religious matters in any way whatever.
Sec. U.- Merely describes Lord B. as u being
aniniated with a laudible and pious zeal for
extending . the christian religion " This was
merely a customary formula. Bozman, the his
torian of Md. calls it cant.
Sec. IV.-Gives to Lord B. "the patronagea
advowsons of all churches, whieh, with the
increasing worship and religion of Christ, with
in the said region * * * * aforesaid, hereafter
idtall happen to be built, together with the license
aqd faculty erecting and rounding churches,
chapels and places of worahip, in .convenient
and suitable places, within the premises, and of
causing the same to be dedicated, or consecra
ted, according to the ecclesiastical laws of our
Kingdom of England."
.Sec. X.-Grants to all coloniists, " all privile
ges, franchiise, and liberties, of this our King
dom of Enelanid, freely, quietly and peaceably
-t have andpossess."
'Sec. Xl.-Provides " that no interpretation
ot the charter be made,'by which the holy riles,
... .. nf .Cad and the .irue christian rs t
sempergund ,aulla fiat interpretatio, per quam
sacrosancto Dci, et rera christiana religio, im
muta tiene, prejudicio, rel dispendio, patiantur."
This is all of the charter that has the least
refe.rence to religious matters. Sec. X. grants
only the liberty tf Enigland, a liberty from which
- our fathers fled, and under which thousands per.
isked in- dun ons, or by the sword, or at the
stake. Sec. XXI. really esablishes the nation.
*al religion of~ England. "The holy service of
God and eh true christian re'ligion" could hon
estly and .:irly mean, only that which was es
tablishaed by law in England. Otherwise it
would make a Protestant King and Government,
say that the Romish worship ind religion, were
the holy worship and service of God, and the
only true christian religion, the very thing, which
the law and Government of England protested
ag inat, and utterly repndiated. This provis
ion, it will be seen, literally hand-cuffed the
Catholie power in the colony, and was an effec
tual bar to its growth forever. The same ob
ject was partially accomplished by. that part of
seed V which prohibits Churches from being
dedicated or consecrated except " according to
the ecclesiastical laws of England," a mode of
consecration which no Catholic would or could
submit to. Without some provision <.f this kind
more or less 'stringent, than these, it is absurd
to suppose that the Protestant Government of
England, fierce as was the hostility to Catholies,
would ever have gratited the charter at all.
-Thus Jar, there is nothing in the charter that
savors of liberty. Its only object, so far as we
hare yet considered, to have been the protection
of Protestant colonist, from aggression on the
part of Catholica. Sec. WV., it will be seen con
ferred on Lord B. the advowson of nll the
churches that might be. built in the province;
and indeed if the~ charter contained no other
objectionable feature than this, its claims to hib
erality would be nugatory. For what is anO ad
vowson I It is a right, conferred by the govern
ment, on an individual, to say who shall be the
pastor of a church, without any regard to the
wishies, or religious sentiments of those who
listen to his ministrations, and who are taxed
for his support. Such a right as this, is not
consistent with religious liberty, in any extend
ed sense, or American sense, or true sense.
5nppose a Roman Catholic noblemian in Ireland
or even an American citizen residing in New
York, aye, or even one of our own citizensi resi
ding in Georgia, were to receive authority from
the State, to dictate a pastor to the Basptist
Church in Augusta. Think you not that the
good people of that fraternity, would enlist the
sympathy and aid of the 600,000 Baptists in
the United States, and indeed the aid and sym
pathy of many other seets, if not of all others,
ad that the whole body, would so far forget
theaiuties of meekiness, gentleness, long suffer
ing and forgiveness, as to rise in their might,
and enact scenes similar to, but more dreadful
than those which terminated the career of Laud,
Stiafford and Charles!
- But enough; there was no liberty in the
charter of Mlaryland. Here let me notice that
air. Stephens in endeavoring to prove that
religious liberty was established by this instru
mnent, unhappily ror himself, quotes this expres
sion fi-om Bancroft: "Christianity was made by
the charter the law of the- land." Does not
- ir. Stephens know, that if any one 'religion,
(the Christian religion for example,) is made the
law of the land, any and all other religions, (the
Jewishsfor example) are made unlawful, or at
least in some respects placed under disabilities
and proseription ? Where the unhallowed union
of Church and State exists, can there be reli
gions liberty? 'Never, never, never !

THE " Southern Times" is before us, a very ably
edited literary paper, of Montgomery, Ala. We
gladly acknowledge the exchange. The " Times"
has been compared by some with the " Home Journal"

latter is the more sparkling while the former is the
more solid of the two.
"The "Jefferson (Texas) Herald" is also placed
upon our list with much pleasure. The news from

Major TIL.MAN WATsON, of this District, has re
cently endowed. a scholarship in the Furman Univer
sity. This is a fine example which other gentlemen
of wealth might follow with credit to themselves and
service to the country.-We hear also that a good
deal was done to the same end at the late meeting of
THE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION.
WE omitted to mention last week that the Edge
field Association had held its annual meeting, with
the Dry Creek church, and that every thing passed
of in the utmost harmony. The village church and
the association have not yet made up their unfortu
nate difficulty; but we learn that the indications were
very favorable to a speedy adjustment of the matter.
It is hoped that all will be well again in this regard by
the time the next meeting of the Association shall
have been consummated. The largest crowd ever
assembled in this District is said to have been in at.
tendance on Sunday of the Associational term. It
was variously estimated at from three to four thousand
souls. Much good preaching was had. Among our
younger ministers we are pleased to learn that Mr. B.
FRANKLIN CoaLEY, is taking a prominent stand.
His is the example of one wi.o has risen by his own

LARGE EARS OF CORN.
ON yesterday we received from a lady in our town
several years of mammoth co n, said to have been sent
to us by a friend-in the good village of Greenwood.
Our friend incog has our warmest thanks for his
very kind and estimable present, though we are afriad
but one or two ears aft~all will fall to our shire, as
the netghboritng farmers chanced in our office just
before return day and cabbaged the greater portion.
Our devil told them it was from the Red river bottoms.
Perhaps they will not grieve to learn thtat in truth the
field from which said ears were gathered lies In their
ative State. We have reserved half of that biggest ear
for you, Gen. B., as you you were kind enough to
count the grains thereon. Think of it, agricultural
societes oneear of corit with over 1200 grainu thereon,
and this ear not larger than many others of the same
Icrop. But you need not apply for a single grain, a
others are ahead in the as emble.
which " the times of-sergsiibij from the- presencd of
the Lord" are experienced to an unusual extent. Re
ports of enthusiastic religious meetings come to us
from every part of the country and thousands are said
to have been gathered within the pale of Protestant
Christianity. How riduculous, withs these constantly
recurring-facts before us, are the fears for Protestant
ascendancy int- America as expressed by the Know
Nothings! The Lord himself is teaching His people
with what weapons and by what eneans to advance
His cause. Let them beware how they resort to that
earnal warfare which is but the invention of man for
his own selfish ends. The breast-plate of Righteous.
ness, the shield of Faith and the sword of the Spirit
-these are the Christian's armoury. Political asso
ciations for purely political ends can do religion no
good. Shun them as a means of advancing the cause

A REVOLUTIONARY FIGHT.
Wa beg to direct the readers attention to an extract
upon our first page In regard to the battle of Cedar
Springs, fought by CLARK and his gallant band of
revolutionary patriots. In doing proper justice to the
real hero of that occasion, Mr. Witsxtrrn has at once
merited the meed of impartial research and contributed
an important item to the revolutionary history of
South Carolina. It too often occurs, that by purely
onesided statements of revolutionary in:idents credit
is taken from those to whom it justly belongs and at
tached to other. who deserve it not. Such was likely
to have been the case in the instance now considered,
had not the Industry of Mr. Wissurrn sought out
the truth and published it. What we have learned,
from gentlemen conversant with this revolutionary
engagement, goes directly to prove the correctness of
the account we this week publish ; and we Aind pleas
ure in calling general attention to a matter of fact
which renders honor to whom honor is due.
MONROE'S JOURNAI, OF FINANCE.
Wr. are -in receipt of the September number of this
valuable publication. It is really worthy of extensive
patronage. This will be evident enot/gh to the com
mercial and financial reader, when we tell him that
every number containts well-prepiared article. upon
such subjects as " Banks," " The Credit System,"
" The Growing Crops" &c. &c., besides a full state
ment of the condition of all the ,Banks in the United
States ist respect to the rates of exchange upon New
York.-But how is this? We observe a remarkat the
head of the long list of banks: ga" You had better
refuse the issues of all banks not hereia named ;" and,
as sure as fate, the Newberry Bank is not on the South'
Carolina list. There is some mistake here. Newber
ry money stands very well at home. People take it
in payment of debts about as readily as they do the
moneyof any other country bank. The Journal is in
error surely. Mind your cards, gentlemen, or we shall
think you but feebly posted upafter all.
However, to take the other view of the case, we
always thought this recent chartering of petty country
banks over the State was very badpolicy--unworthy
of South Caroling1 Legislators-and wo should not
wonder any day to jee them burst up .one after the
other. The Journal may not be far wrong after all.
KING'S MOUNTAIN CELEBR ATION.
W observe that various communities throughout
the State are manifesting a proper interest in the ap
proaching celebration of the battle of King's Moun
am. Present appearances indicate that the affatir is
to prove entirely successful, and we only regret that
Edgefield has not thought proper to identify her name
with the occasion. Thousands are expected to attend
the dinner and ample preparations, says the "Yorkville
ngirer," are making to entertain all who may come.
The millitary of the State will be repreuented to some
considerable extent. At night, a grend ball is to be
given at Yorkville for the benefit of the chivalry and
beauty that shall be then and there assembled. Doubt
less te whole celebration will be handsomely carried

TAE SiPARTANBURO DINNER AND COL.
Tan Spartan quotes our language in regard to the
feeling at the Spattanburg dinner -and says: 'We
have conversed with may persons on the positions of
the respective gentlemen named by the AvrtiuW
(Col's. Oaa and' Karrr,) and, except the gentleman
fromUnion, we have yet to hear the first endorser of
Col. Ksrrr's views." -And doubtless he from whom
we derived our information had conversed with quite
as many as the Spartan has. Here is one gentleman's
opinion of matters against another's. An editor is as
often wrong as any one else; and, to speak the whole
truth, be is about as often right too. We therefore
conclude that a great many at the Spartanburg dinner
favored the respective views of both the cofressional
gentlemen alluve-named. But then Spartanburg is
not-the State; neither is Col. Oaa's District the State.
As for Praacs's administration, we have all ip..
proved it. And. doubtless tlhe vote of South Carolina
will be cast for him again if the opportunity occurs.
But why not vote as we have generally done t The
chief influence of our State in such matters is that
which results from the sound tone of her politics. She
can exhibit this better outside of a Baltimore Conven
tion than in one. It may always be safely calculated,
upon which candidate for the Presidency her choice
will fall. Because she makes that choice on princi.
ple. Her mere vote in Convention would be a very
small matter. Her moral influer ce there might- be
something at the start ; but we fear even that would
soon be lost to her in the giddy whirl of political pas
sions inseparable from this grand American scramble
for the loaves and fishes. Let the storm of contending
factions rage around her. She best fulfils her destiny
by preserving peace within her borders and looking
calmlj out upon the troubled political sea. She thus
not only keeps spotless the character of her people and
unsoiled the skirts .f her political leaders, but she
stands as a beaconlight of Truth and Principle for the
whole country. .040
Tuza: is cause of congratulation for our district at
arge, in the fact that only two hundre and silty-six
cases have been returned to the approaching Court of
Law. It shows a condition of things in our midst that
must be truly gratifying to every heart of ordiharily
human instincts. There can be . no doubt that the
people of Edgefield are largely in debt. The Pales of
the last two years are sufficient to place this matter
beyond question. It must be true too that the major
part of this indebtedness remains unliquldated. How
could it be otherwise with the tightness of the money
market for the last eighteen months. But, thanks to
a kind Providence, a- year of abundance is at length
before us. The extraordinary fullness of the in.coming
crop is now a certainty. Although cotton is in places
deficient, yet the general yield promises to be nearly
an average one; while the whole country is profusely
supplied with provisions of every kind. It may be
expected that pork will be cheap. Bread-stuffs too
must fall to a very low notch. While cotton will in
all probability command highly remunerative prices.
It is this happy combination of circumstances that ac
counts for the present lenisney of creditors. They
have considered the matter wisely and humanely ; and
the course of forbearance they have so generally adop
ted is worthy of much commendation. The effect,
we hope, w ill be a full and free circulation of " the
needful" during the approaching winter eascn. In
view of the generous line of conduct pursued by credi
tors, it becomes debtors now to stir their stumps, gather
up their incomes, sell their produce and pay up as
speedily as possible. If every one of them would fol
low out this course wit h a determination of applying
the whole proceeds (not imperati ely needed for neo
cessary family expenses) to the ~ttlement of theit
notes or accounts, a season of buoyancy and brisknesu
and general releif would soon brighten the face and
cheer the heart of society everywhere. Nous eerryna

There spoke a Unionist and a Submisuionist of the

fixtures and dependencies. It is renouncing all tha

of Southern statesmen, Joux C. Car~noUN, sought 1<
inculcate as of the last importance to the security o:
his section, and adopting the poor slang of suelt
men as fearedl him In life and hated him even it

STATE OF THE CHURCHES.
UNDER this head there will be an mnteresting sched
ule in the forth-coming Alinntes of the late Baptist
Association for Edgefield. Six hundred and twventy
persons have been baptized within the last twelve
months, and thirty three restored. This is exclusive
of the large accession (nearly a hntndred) to the Dap
ist church at this place. ilany additions have beeri
made also to the Methodist church. There denomina
tions largely preponderate in Edgefield. Indeed there
are very few, of other sects, within our lrmits. The
Lutheran'creed prevails to some extent on the Salnda
side, and about our village here there are a good many
Episcoplians and some dozen or so perhaps or Catho
li. The two first branches of Christians, however,
may be said to have swept the District.
Tue United States census for 1850 shows the popu
lation of Edgefield (as to free whites only) to be some
sixteen thousand. Out of this number there were
rendered in five hundred and thirty-six adults who
could neither read nor write. This certainly would
look as though the "School-master was abroad."
But he not alarmed, fellow-citizsens of Edgefield.
