ADDITIONAL BY THE AMERICA.
The English journals generally regard the
success of the allies against Sebastopol as com
,., plete enbugh for all useful purposes.
f The Paris Debate contains the following notes
on the present occupation of the allied army,
from the pen of Col. St. Ange:
" It has been asked if Sebastopol is tenable,
so long as the Russians remain mastelt of all
the forts on the north side, which line the 'sea
in front on-the town? Undoubtedly; it may be
held.in spite of this. It is true that the occupa
tion of the north by the Russians prevents our
entering the roadstead and the port. What
need have we of them when we already possess
excellent harbor? Have not our fleets aire tdy pass
the winter without incurring any danger in these
waters? It has also been asked if the allies
will have to undertake, now or later, the siege
of the forts on the north side ? There appears
to be no absolute necessity for so doing.
,,The forts on the north side can neither pre
vent our occupation of Sebastopol, nor can they
thwart our operations in the interior of We
Crimea, on account of their eccentric situation.
We should not be surprised at their being
blown up '.o soon as the Russian army is com
pelled to retreat from the neighborhood of Se
ba.,topol. For the present the allied army holds
its strong position untilthe occupation of the
town shall have been properly 'arranged and its
chief defences thoroughly repaired. It does not
appear to have anything else to do at present.
The Ruesi:atn army, for its part, occupies the ex
cellent position of Mackenzie, strongly entrench.
ed lined with redoubts like our own. The Rus
sians will probably continue in observation be

allied army gives signs of some movement."

The-death of General de Salles, who made
the-attack on the Central Bastion, is not con

his death from the explosion of a mine. Gen

" Something like an approach to the actual
lose 'sustained by our allies on the 8th instatnt
has at length been obtained. In a telegraphic
commeauiention to the Ffench i~overnmnent, -Mar

including 240 officers, have gone to the hospi

however, thme opinion of the mazrshtal that they
do not exceed thte ordinary proportion, viz:
'about one third of thme anber of the wounded."
The Globe, referring to a statement of thte
Mortning Post, that the total English loss in
killed atnd wounded at the attack of the Redan
was 2.000, says that of that number between.
five and six hundred were killed. We learn
from the last oficeial di.'patcha received by Lord
Pantmure, thatt the number of officers killed is
26, wounded 114, and missing one; total 141.
It has been estimated in the absence, of thme
officeial returns, that the number of men killed
would be about 220, antd wounded 1,596; total
1,817. According to ids calculation the total
of men and offieers killed and wounded would
Russri PAslC.-It appears that not less than
1,200 guns of large calibre haave been found by
the ahsat Sebastopol. It is thought the Run
siana will have made an attempt to redeem their
-defect by again attacking ut, and it is rumored
, s-day that the government was in expectation
oftthe news of a great battle. During the as.
sault the Russian artillerymen were killed at
their guns, but it is affirmed that with that ex
ception, a panic took complete possession of
the arm at the appearance of the allies in the
IR~ako' Tower. Their hasty retreat was oc
casioned by the fear that we should fire on the
bridge and tatke them prisoners.
A telegraphic despatch from Balaklava, dated
Sunday, 9th Instant, 3 A. M., states that 650
Rausan soldiers and 27 officers were taken pri
sonera in the Malakoff on Saturday.
PROTECTED CAMPAIGN 03 THE DANUBE.-The
Vienna correspondent of the Independence
speaks of a new and important, diversion by the
Western Powers on the Lower Danube, and it
-is said that the co-operation of Austria hmas beeni
declared necessary for the complete success of
the operation. It is said, however, that the cx
p edition ie actually decided, and that Gen. Letang
Is expected daily in Vienna.
DENMAREI AND THE SotND DUis.-A letter
from Berlin, in the Augsburg Gazette, states
that the Danish government has declared itself
willing to reduce the Sound Dues for all coun
tries. It Is said that Austria has strongly re
commended Dennmark to make this concession,
and that this latter Power will shortly mako its
intentions known to all the States interested in
the question. In the course of a leading artie
on the same subject, the Pays expresses a
firm conviction that an European Congress
must assemble before long to discuss and regu
1ste not only the question of the Sound, but
.evursl other., which have remained for some
time in suspenso.
Tns NoRTH SIDE OF SEBAsTotor.-At the
latest advices the Allies were not in possession
of the.North side iof Sebastopol, where the for
tificati'ons are of great strength, and command,
4 on account of their elevated position. the oppo
site shore. An American, who is serving as an
officer of the medical staff in the Russian army,
-gives the following description of the forts on
the north side of tihe bay:
"On the north side of the bay is also a sue
cession of hills, some of which are very high,
and running in every direction. You find on
them all bastions facing in every direction.
These bastions and redoubts extend up the bay
for a mile or so from the city, and some of them
are very effective, pouring nearly a continued
stream of bells across thme bay into the enemy's
battery which is nearest the bay. I think'it
very doubtrul whether the Fren'eh would be
.able to hold this city for any length of time, if
they could get possession of it, from the fact
that the hills on the north side are taller than
those on the south."
RECEIFTS OF Frwua AND Gajwm.-The receipts
of flour and wheat are materially on the in
crease, both by the Erie Railroa:I and the Hud
son river boats. The arrivals of flour yesterday
by the latter amounted to nea-ly 18.000 barrels;
wheat 41.000 bushels; corn 65,000; and .oats

EARLY KILLING FROST.
Wr have been visited th's fall by an unusually early
killing frost. The hopes of farmers are thus bligb'ed,
and the Cotton Crop, which has never been estimated
even as high as an average crop, is cut short. In
many places where the crop of Cotton was thought to
be the most promising, the frost has killed the top
crop, and we thus judge that the crop will fall con
siderably below former iexpectations. A gentleman
who has noted the early frosts in formner years, has
kindly furnished us with the following statement: In
1852 the first frost was on the 15th November; in
1853, on the 25th October; in 1854, on the 15th No
vember, and in 1855, on the 7th and 8th October.

Itt order to put a stop to:the numerous and never
ceasing cries of the anxious multitude which are con.

FROM NORFOLK AND PORTSMOUTH.
Wi are happy to state, (says the Richmond "aDea
palch," of Friday last,) that the Fever has almost en
tirely disapr.eared from Norfolk and Portsmouth.
There was not a single death in the fatter city during
the tn enty-four hours ending with sunset Wednesday.
There are several old cases which may terminate
fatally, but the disease has ceased to exist as an epi
demic. There were only five deaths in Norfolk for
the 24 hours' ending Wednesday evening. The stores
on Market Sqnare were open, and the town had begun
to assutme a cheerful appearance.
" HURL r~a FOR GEORG.II."
IT will be seen by the following results of the can
vass in Georgia, that the Anties have carried the day,
and that the Know Nothings are not such an all-fired,
powerful party, after all their secret machinations to
subvert the liberties of thne old empire State. We re
joice that the old lady has again " skinned thec cat."
TuE RESULT OF TnE CANVAS.-We have oficial
and tnoaficiat returns from ninety-three counties, and
there cannot be a reasona'ble doubt of the re-election
of Hi. V. Johnson, by at least two thousand votes over
the joint voites of Judge Andrews and Mr. Overby.
The vote for the Prohibition candidate will reach
about six thoausand.
The election oif six anti-Know Nothings, and two
Know Nothinags to Conigress, is generally admitted.
There will be a very decided majority of anti-Know
Nothings in the Legislature.

food, and drank nothing but plain dilutent drinks.
He eschewed tobacco in every form. Every morning

CUMMifG'S LECTURES ON ROMANISM.
Ma. EDITOR :-In common with many thousands, I
have been much interested-in the perusal of this work,
and nothing is farther from my intention than in any
way to disparage It, fdr it is in myseimation The
Book of the present.generation, as reipecls the sub
jects on which it is written.
I simply wish to place in comparison .one of the
finest passages of the author and an extract from a
sermon by CnairsTas Evars, of Wales,.an ecen
tric Baptist minister, who died in ]838, worn out with
age and successfully faithful labors. This extract
from the "one-eyed Welchman," Is think, will not
suffer by comparison with the production of theerudl 'i
Dr. C., though much of its beautyand force is perhaps
lost in the translation. The permission to insert thei.
articles will be respectfully appreciated by
Truly yours, B. L. W.

some part of our world, many miles in circumference,
filled with the diseased, the dying. and the deidi
Love, like an angel of mercy, comes down from the
uppersanctuary, and looks upon the gigantic inclosure,
weeping at the painful spectacle of the dying in all
their stages of disease, and the dead sleepip beneath
the shadow of despair. Approaching one o the gates,
Love finds a sentinel stationed to guard it, and asks
his name ; he answers, ' I am Truth.' Love asks, "Is
it possible I may enter here to heal the dying, and hid
the dead arise I Truth replies,' I have wnne n, The
soul that sinneth, it shall die; and I cannoteancel-it.'
Love hastens to another gate, and finds another senti
el, and asks his name; and his a-sewer is, 'I am
Holiness.' Love says 'Cannot the dying be restored
and the dead be made to live ' Holiness replies, ' I
can permit none that are impure to escape from their.
congenial residence, and hold communion with'the
holy.' Love goes to a third gate, and finds there a
sentinel whose name is Justice; Love asks the ques.
tion, 'Can the dying be healed? can the dead be
quickened ? may I enter to redeem the one, and to re
store the other?' Justice .replies, 'I have weighed
them in the scales, and it is written upon them all,
Altogether wanting.' Love asks, Then what is to be
done? I would recover the dying, 1 would quicken
the dead. How is it possible to accomplish it!'- Jus
tice, and Truth, and Holiniess reply 'If an atonement
can be made adequate to our demands, we will sur
render the keys intrusted to our care; and not only
may the dying be recovered, and the dead live, but
we will assist to accomplish it.' Love returns to that
residence from whence it came, and announces the
solemn and faithful fact, that either all living crea
tures in our lost world must sink into hell forever, or
some glonous atonement must be made, so-efficacious
that all the attributtbs of God shall be glorified, and
Love enabled to reach and reclaim the perishing ril
ty. The question is asked, amid the millions of TIea
ven-' Who shall go for us? Who is prepared to bear
the curse and exhaust it, to magnify the law and make
it honorable!' All heaven ts dumb; angels are
dumb, archangels are dumb, the seraphim that burn
and glow around t' a everlasting Throne are dumb.
At last, 'a still small voice' proceeds Irom the Throne,
as of a Lamb that had been plain, saying, 'Here am I,
send me; lo, I come!' That Saviour descends to our
world--assumes our nature-for usendores the curse
for us obeys the law-for us takes its sting from death,
and its triumph from the grars ; and as the mingled
tones of agony and triumph-' It is finished'-reverber
ate through the earth and reach the heavens, Justice
resigns it, keys, Holiness fings open its tes, Truth
declares all threatenings met and satisfi , Mercy on
ters the inclosure with more than Gilead's ianlm; the
dying are reste'red, the departed are quickened, the
tomnbs of the dead become the tabernacles of the livin,
the wilderness rejoices, and Zion's courts resound

'Suppose a vast graveyard, aurrounded by a lofty
wall, with only one entrance, wilich is by a massive
iron gate, and that is fast bolted. Within are thou
sands and millions of human beings, of all ages and
classes, by orre epidemic disease bending to the grave.
Thte graves yawn to swallow them, andat they must all
perish. There is no balm to relieve, no physician
there. Such is the ce~ndition of man-as a sInner. Alt
suave sinned ; and it Is written,' 'The soul that ainneth
shall die.' Btit while the enhappy race lay In that
dismal prisoni Mercy came and stood at the gate, and
wrqptovr the melancholy scene, exclaimingg 'O that
I might enter! I wo~ald~ bind up their wounds.; I
would relieve their so'rrows; I would save their souls!'
An embasy of angels, commissioned from the court
of Heaves to some othaer world, paused at the sight,
and Heaven forgave that pause. Seeing Mercy statnd
ing there, they cried :-' Mercy ! canst thou not enter!
Canst thou look upon that scene and not pity!i Canat
thou pi:y, and not relievet' Mercy replied : " I can
see !' and in her tears she added, ' I can pity, but I
cannot relieve!' 'Why can't thou not enter!' in
quired thae heavenly host. 'Oh!' said Mercy, 'Jus
tice lies barred the gate agains~t me, and I must not
cannot unhar it!' At this moment, Justice himnself
appeared, as if to waicu thie gate. The angels asked,
' Why wilt titou not suffer Mercy to enter!' He stern
ly replied: 'The law is broken, anid it must be htonor
ed! Die they or Justice most!' T'hen appeared a
form among the angelic bend like unto the Son of
God. Addressing himself to Justice, he said : ' What
are thy demands!' Justice replied: 'My demands
are rid; I must have ignominy for their honor, sic-k
ness lirtheir health, death for their life. Without the
shedding of blood there is no remission!' ' Justice,'
said the Son of God, ' I accept thy terms! On me be
this wrong ! Let Mercy enter, and stay thie carnival
of death ! ' What pledge dust thou give for the per
formance of these conditionsl' ' My wonnl; my oath !'
'When wilt thou perform them!' 'Four thlousand
years hence, on the hill of Calvary, without the walls
of Jerusalem!' The bond was prepared, and signed
and sealed in the presence of attendant angels. Jns
ice was satisfied, the gate was opened, and Mercy
entered, preaching salvation in the name of Jesus.
The bond was committed to patriarchs and .prophets.
A long series of rights and ceremonies, sacrifices and
oblations, was Instituted to perpetuate the memory of
that solemn deedl. At the close of the fourthotusandth
year, when Dantiel's 'seventy weeks' were accom
plishied, Justice and Mercy appeared on the hill of
Calvary. ' Where,' said Justice, 'is the Son of G'ad?'
' Behold him,' answered Mercy, ' at the fool of the
hill!' And thern lie came, bearing his own cross, and
followed by his weeping church. Mercy retired, and
stood aloof from the scene. Jesus ascended the hill,
like a lamb for thet sacrifIce. Justice presented the
dreadful bond, saying, 'This is the day on which this
article must he cancelled." The Redleemer took it.
What did hae do with it ? Tear it in pieces, and scat
ter at to the winds? No! he nailed It to his cross,
crying, 'It is finished !' The Victim ascended the al
ter. Justice called on holy fire to come down and
consume the sacrifice. Holy fire replied: 'I come! I
will consume the sacrifice, and then I will burn up the
world !' It fell upomn the Son of God, and rapidly con
sumed his humanity; hut when it touched his D ely,
it expired. Then was there darkness over the whole
land, and an earthquake shook the mountain; but the
heavenly host broke forth In rapturous song-' Glory

FOUNDLING AT A CAxIP MEETtNSG.-On Mon
daty morning, 1st inet, some little children wan
de'red out into the woods near the Methodist
Catmp Meeting ground at Mount Olivet meeting
house, near Piekensville in Pickens district, and
about one hutndred yards outside the range of
tents, they found a newborn infant by the side
of an old' log, covered over with leaves and
trash. The children ran back and told their
mother, a kind hearted lady, who went out and
brought in the little stranger, and dressed it
and took care of it. Another lady asked for
the child to be given to her, and has adopted it
and bestowed upon it the name of Matrthaa Early.
The unnatural woman is not, known. We learn
some suspicions attach to a particular women.
The child, when found, was supposed to be
only a few hours ohtI, and from the situation in
which it was placed, it seems to have been aban
doned to perish unobserved. The horrible and
shocking purpose of the mother has been dinnap
pointed. The fear of public shame and dis
g race was doubtless the cause of her conduct.
Such tan occurrence is moat ra:-e in our country,
but it proves that there are among us, here and
there, worse than heathen hearts, " without nat
ural affection," and who, an in this instance,
reject every appeatl of the Gospel sounding in

elk-hearty cheerm from -his aulitory, and the
grand old. mountain re-echoed the welcome to
the-descendant of one whose noble deeds on that
halflowed spot gave new !ife to those gallant
spirits who were struggling for the liberties of
theircountry. There were few on that grotnd
who did not catch some of the inspiration of the
occasion, or who did not feel amply compensated
for the toil of the journey thither.
It.would be folly for me to attempt to furnish
you with any'abstraet of the eloquent discourse
of the distinguished and gifted orator. Your
readers know-him too well not to -feel assured
that he did justice. to his glorious theme. For
genuine heart-reaehing. and heart-stirring elo
'quenes,,we have rarely,'.if ever, listened to a
more successful effort. He enchained and ven
raptured his audience for over two hours, now
with his glowing and des-riadve eloquence, and
anon with his beautiful imagery, his chaste and
truthful groupings of the noble spirits who led
their countrymeu to vietory. Distinguished a3
Col. Preston has been for' his previous efforts
and I have heard zany of them-this, I must
say, was his best.
.It is needless.fo say that his address was well
received ; the ringing cheers and thundering ap.

gave abundant eaidepee that he had carried the
hearts of that vist'assetablage who stood before
Col. Preston%:was followed by Mr. Bancroft,
who, in the remarks he made, paid a very hand

well received byihe audience, and I am sure was
highly gratified withsthe spectacle before him

alter of liberty erected by God himself, and con

On the platform we observed the venerable

other invited-guests, who had come to honor the
occasion. I was informed the dinner was boun
tiful, consisting or everything that was good,
and elegantly prepared.
I regret to safy that- the enjoymrnt of the day
was clouded by a.serious accident which befel a

XORE THAN THY 3A30AINED 1O3
Our readers are already aware that a endtrse
of lectures on slavery is to be delivered during
the ensuing winter Il Boston, which, we.believe
has been part of the regular.amusements of that.
city for a number of years pant. With the view
of attracting more than the customary share of
public attention towards th-se systengarized ef
forts of fanaticism,- invitations to lecture have
been extended to reveral distinguished states
men, whose views on the constitutional question
of slavery are known to be pre-eminently sound
and unyielding. We have already published the
Iommenably brief reply of Senator Donguls,
in which thnt gent leman takes the wisely liberal
and patriotic stand that as a citizen of a non
slaveholding State he had no right to interfere
with the constitutional domestic institutions of
a sister State. A similar invitation was extend.
ed to Senatnr Butler, of South Carolina, -but a
similar deelension was not received-much to
th3 surprise, we doubt not, of the committee on
invitations. Unlike Mr. Douglas, Mr. Butler is
a citizen of a State where slavery is a long es
tablished and' universally recognised institution.
He is not only willing to teet in person the is
sues raised by the abolitionists, but he Is pre
pared to raise others which we presume. they
will have no relish for discussing. lie says in
".As you request it, I will indicate the general
topics upon which I will speak, should I deliver
the lecture in Boston.
"First, That whilst the Slates were colonies,
slavery was introduced and allowed without dis
tinetion of section, and that then, by the comity
of these political communities, the rendition of
fugitive slaves was more certain than now under
the provisions of the federal constitution.
" Second, That when federal authority under
the old federation assumed jurisdiction over the
subject, and the introduction of slaves was pro.
hihited, it was done by the votes of northern and
southern members, without distinelion of section.
" Third, That when the slave trade was open.
ed by the authority of the present constitution,
the measure was sanctioned by votes North and
South, without distinction of section.
."Fourth, That this trade, from 1790 to 1808,
was carried on in northern vessels and by north
ern slave merchants, and that they mainly derived
the profits of it.
" Fifth,-That these slares were captured by
northern adventurers, mostly by violence. or
fraudulent seduction, and were sold to the south
ern planter for a fair consideration.
"Sixth, That these slaves came to the south
ern planter as ignorant barbarians, and by his
tutelage they have been converted into useful
and intelligent laborers.
"Seventh, That by the gradual- improvement
of their condition they are well fed and clothed.
"-Eighth, That the three and a half millions of
slaves introduced directly or indirectly by the
North could not be set free without consequences
detrimental to both sections.
"Ninth, That in a fair account between the
sections, the North has been a gainer by the use
of slave labor.
These topics would take up a good deal of
time, and of course I would reserve the liberty
of amplifying or of adding others to them.
"Very respectfully, your obed't serv't,
"A. P. BUTLER.

SPAIN AND TlE ALLIEs.-T.he Spanish corres
pondent of the New York Times writes that
the project for bringing Spain into the alliance
against Russia is at an end, He says that the
people of Spain are against it, and that Generatl
Espartero has decided to go with the people.
This is an imnportatnt step, if it proves to be
well founded; anid the T1imnes is inclined to
credit it, from the confident tune with whticht it
is announced by its errespondent.
AAnAm BANE.-Thcre was a rumor in town
yesterday that the Atlanta Batik had failed.
We understitnd two gentlemena passed through
this city on Wedsaesda'y, on their return to Uni

about one hundred thousand dollars of the
notes issued by the banks in both cities. The
amont on the Bank of Griffin was promptly
redeemed in specie. Bdt a small portion of the
Atlanta B-mk bills were redeemed and they left

with ite inducements offered by buyers, hats
caused many thousand bushels to change hands
recently in thtis and Anaderson districts. The
price ranges from $1.15 per bushel. Flour is
selling at $6 per barrel.
In Charleston, since July last, 320,000 bush
