EDGEFIELD C. H., Sept. 20,1855.
AMessrs. E. H. Britton 4- Co::
DEAR SIas: I have received your Circular,
asking if, as a member of the Legislature, I am
willing to contribute ten dollars in promotion of
your design to procure " the services of ef ient
sten ograhers, to be present in both branches of
the South Carolina Legislature during .its next
session, for the purpose of publishing a detailed
report of the proceedings of each House, pre
cisely as published in the Washingtun Globe du
ring the session of Congress."
=In reply, it affords me great pleasure to assur
you, that I will most cheerfully contribute the
amount solicited, and further, that in my judg.
ment, nothing is more wanted in South Carolina,
at this time, than the successful prosecution of
the enterprise which you propose to undertake.
The Political or Legislative History of our
State.is almost wholly unknown, for while it is
true that the reasons and causes which led to
the enactment or amendment of many of our
Jaws, may -be found in the Introduction and
Notes to Brevord's Digest of the Statutes, or in
the learned opinions of our Appeal Court, and
oceasionally in the Annual Reports of Execu
tive Offlicers, or in contemporaneous newspaper#
yet the great mass, of our legislation is left, un
explained by any published book or document
with which I am acquainted.
And the sources of information above indien.
ted are costly and scattered, as well as sadly
defective, besides being inaccessible except to a
few professional characters. I know that the
aipublishev records of the several departments
of the Government at Columbia, sometimes
throw additional light on particular legislation,
yet, even with the aid of these, I have frequently
searched in vain for a satisfactory -history of
changes in numbers of our most important
Statutes. No person can properly expound any
law without a perfect knowledge of the real in
tention of the law.making power, and a full view
of all the fnets, causes, reasons, circumstances
and necessities which induced the etnctment of
that law. And es the .emergency for deciding
authoritatively every vital construction or inter
pretation of which a Statute is susceptible, does
notL arise in many cases within a shorter period
than half a century, or untijl long after the au
thtors of such statute may have passed away,
the conclusion must follow, that without some
record of the debates upon said statute at the
time of its adoption, the people, the lBar and
the Judgies, in their expositions of it, will have
to be guided by vgue tradition, dangerous an
ojog, or unsafe hyothesis.
reports of t ga ve ummtuees, an a i
the speeches or comments of its Representatives
upon every proposition submitted to their con
sideration. England whose Government consti
tutes the model upon which ours is formed, has
long jkept such a record of her legislation as the
one of which I speak. Congress has done the
same for more thaw a quarter of a century, and
so have some of the States. As far as my in
formation goes, South Carolina is the only Staite
in the Union, the publication of whose -legisla
tivo proceedings is not foil, indexed, bound and
labeled, in a becomIng manner. Even poor and
thinly settled Floridn, with less than a fifth of
the population or wealth of Carolina, finds the
means to issue a record of her legislative pro
seedings that makes ours look contemptible.
The debates in our Legislature will doubtless
compare favorably with those of any other
State Assembly on the continent; yet, as a gen
eral rule1 they are all lost to us, and, as a conse
quence, one's State pride is always bumbled.
whenever he compares the meagre report of
proceedings and speeches at Columbia with
those which come from Albany or Baton Rouge.
The contrast is so great, that it diminishes the
veneration which heshbould feel for his Legisla
ewse, ed the pleasure or instruction which he
.ught to-derive from perusing the published de
tails of the -conduct. of his Representatives,
iwhen met together, is absolutely little or none.
Itis almost as beneficial to know why, how, or
.by whom a law is passed as to know the latw
itsulf.; and the objections to, or arguments
against a-statute, are as useful in explaining it,
asare the .seneoasin favor of it.
By far the greater number of laws that affect
our personal or property rights, are passed by
.the loeal Legislature, and it does seem to me,
that as we py for a proper record .of Congres
sional legisltion by taxation from custotas, so
we ought to have a better and more permanent
one of the actings and sayings of our separate
legislature. I for one am willing to aid the un
dertaking by a permanent contract on the pairt'
of the State, especially if the work can be ac
complished for so small a sum as fifteen hundred
or two thousand dollars, or for even twice that
amount, and provided further, that the printing
he done in form for *idig In voting for such
aimeasure, I should feel t It was discharging
my duty as a Representative of the people,.ac
cording to the dictates of my honet judgment
and for the best interest of my country.
For these reasons, your projected enterprise
has my unqualified approbation, either-as a Rep
resentative or as a private subscriber; and, al
though I am unalterabl opposed to the politics
of your paper as regas Know Nothingism, yet
I am ready to aid your project with every means
at my command. I sincerely believe that so
geat a desideratum in .tho future Legislative
history of the~ Stats as you propose to supply,
will meet with the cordial support of the people
and their Representatives. Hoping eternal life
to the " new era in South Carolina journalism"
which you prmise to inaugurate, if sufficiently

PRUITS AND FLOWERS. . ~ g
We present this week, for the inspection of fruit t
lovers and flower-cultivators, two very attractive ad- W
vertisements. One of them is from D. REDMOND, t
near Augusta Ga, and the other from Susteua & s.I
CRAMMOND, Pomaria, Newberry District. Both nur- t'j
series are replete with the choicest varieties of trees and
plants. Orders sent to either establishment will be
proptly and faithfully filled at standard priees. It is A
our good fortune to know both Mr. Suxa and Mr. bl
REDonD; anid we undertake to guarantee cornplete hi
satisfaction to all who may apply to them. Here are itt
two superb orchard and garden conservatories, one oi a
either side of our District. Within our borders there vq
are many, many localities precisely adapted to fruit re
culture, and many acres of yard-room that might be o1
beautifully adorned with the thousand and one lovely G
varieties of La Rose. Will our farmers, will our ladies
slight these- opportunities ? Now is the time for this
kind of Improvement. Make out your orders andl send Is
them on. Either REDMOND, or SUMMER & CatM-a
tOre, will honor your paper on sight.

out this plan, sets an example worthy of imitation.
If all of us would adopt and adhere to this course, the
business of our calling would he at once more lucra- ha
tivend more pleasant. It does seemi to us, that, in
consideraion of the -industry and. skill manifested in ti
the conduct -of the "Croiaian," as well as from t a r- pr
collection of the heavy loss sustained by its proprietor wi
in the fire of 1853, the subscribers to this valuable. da
journal should step forward at once, to a man, and re,
not only pay up their dues but renew their subsci-ip

TRIP TO AUGUSTA.
WITHIN the past week, we have taken one of those
rasant trips to Augusta of which we always make
ation once, and sometime twice, .per annum.
tppening to be-down at ti same time-with several
ry pleasant Edgefield people, anttt-e.dust happern
to be laid, and happening still further to find our
agusta friends in good spirits, we had what we may
lt-eall a delightful time.' The little we have to say
the, trip, shall be sered. 1p in tl*.most laconic
One word about the plank road: It does tolerably
ll down tothe Cherokee Ponds; but from that place
any to Hampburg it. is abominable. There ough-to
forty hands this moment at the business of repairs;
a saw only four on the whle line. It borders upon
imposition to charge travellers for such.a succes'
ma of jolts.
Iamburg is busy .this season. A good deal of cot
a has been sent there already, and a great deal more
,confidedtly expected. The cotton-buyers in Ham
irg are understood to be liberal and -air; and this
et never fails to draw trade.' There are establish
ants too in Hamburg that will compare with the
at. To cite but a single one, we defy any Southern
ty to show a more complete hardware house than
at of RoBINSoN & JacxsosN, or two cleverer fellows
an thu men who own it. In the line of-heavy gro
ries, Hamburg is welLknown to be abundantly sup
ed. Add to this that she has one-of the best Banks
South Carolina, and. some idea may be formed of
e inducements she ofiers to the public.
Augusta was more brisk and lively on Thursday
at than we have seen her look for marry a day. The
erchants seemed to be generally full of work. In
a dry-goods line, -WARD & BI7acIAIn were crowd
I. In the clothing business, NEway & Co. appeared
have a little more than all hands-could accomplish.

rocks and do the fair thing alt the- way through. -The

ebest location in Augusta, especially for families.. Ii
in the very heart of the Dry Goods business, which
akes it just the place for ladies who go to shop. The
-esent landlord is exceedingly obliging and his ser
tnts are very attentive. The table too is good enough
ad the rooms are excellent. There is one advantage
hich this hotel has over the others in Augusta-we
ean.the fact-of its affording a comfortable Ladies'
rdinary, easily accessible by a private entrance from
ie Ladies' Parlor, This. advantage needs only to be
entioned to be appreciated.- For the information of

is now kept in fine style by PLUMs & HAtCr, who
rye up a very nice lunch at the right time of day
ad afford an excellent glass of anything you like to
ash it down with. Altogether, JENNrNs' house Is
ready a good stopping place and promises soon to be
still better; for the old man is evidently bent upon
erting himself in the right way.
In short, (for we have not space to say more,) take
e old 'clty of Augusta up one side and d->wn the
her, it is a considerable spot of ground. We oEdge
:ld may well congratulate ourselves upon r in
easing prosperity. She gives us facilities (in con.
in.ion with Hambug) whihLt few other part, of our
ate enjoy ; and those amongst us, -who refuse to ad.
it thme fact, or profit by it, are actuated by little bet
r thmau a spirit of contracted prejudice. They.are
ung injustice to a business town of real usefulness
ad standing in the way of their own interests.
WHY THIS DIFFERENCE..
AT other Courts in South Carolina the attendance
'freign lawyers seem to he almost multitudinous.
ut in Edgefield we scarcely ever see more than two
-three visitors from the Bars of our sister districts.
See what the Chester "Standard" says, in speaking
the last session of.the Court for Chestsr :
"Among the foreign lawvyers in attendance were
pt. J. M. Ruitland, R. B. leylston, Es. J. Z.
....--,l V.. r'.I: r R. Mer .n~and.&LStor,

hompson, of Un'on. W. F. DeSaussure, Col. Gregg
d Hon. E. J. Arthur, of Columbia, and W. A.
oore, and J. Williams of Lancaser; also C. Chain
rs, of York."
Observe also this from a Greenville paper:
" From Anderson we notice Messrs. Broyles, Reid
ad Sloan. Messrs. Boho, Choice and Carlisle, from

The reason of the difference Is, either because we
Iveta better bar than most Districts, or because we
at live on a Rail Road.

Tax Greenvilla "Enterptise"~ says that during the
t Court, week for Greenville District, such a thing
a drunken man was a rare sight. We believe the
hiy of village restriction works well enough for a
ar or two.. It has done so with us in Edgefleld vii
e. But it is to bq teared, after all, that the remedy
not permanant in its nature. Break up the habit of
inking liquor in a certain way, and men will not be
aw in finding out some shift by which to obtain their
rated "drops." During our last Court It was evi
nt that every one got liquor who wanted it. A half
ee or a dozen persons threw in and bought three
lIons at a time, from which all of them drank abund

Ma.- EDITOR :-I have- been haritssed to the car
educational fot a series of years, and I have drawn, a
I thought, with assiduityi alacrity and patience. I an
beginning to find out, however, that it is an up lAil
business. To drop metaphor, I liaa*come to the so
lemn conclusion.-with the light of experience shinini
in my eyes-that The vocation of a school-master Is no
to be choen hy tlhose,ho desire health, cheerfulness
fortune, or honorable diatinction. In the first place
the compenisation, in most instances, is wholly inade
quate to the serviceseenifered; in the second place
the considcet'on- Ae. claim to notice-thAe degree q
respectobile~ Which-attaches thereto is~not common
arats with' she:respuciibility; in the third place,i
shatters the nerve., it in'uees a feeling of"deep ani
brooding melancholy," It spoils the best disposition
It undermines the comltution, and galvanizes th.
mind into a sort of-' ' odic action, which border
too closely on inmstiy I am at times inclined to thi
opinion, thlat the task Sisyphuis was light in comn
parison with that oV'a conscientious and sensitiv.
pedagogue. In rollin hat great stone up the moun
the mountain, what a nobte prospect- of the Elysia.
feldsu was spread out before him! And how exhilera
ting it must hare been to stand on that lofty eminence
and watch the progress of the fated stone as it wen
thundering adown the rugged steeps of the. mountain
The incredulous may smile, but I have in my mind'
eye many an intelligent gentlema.., who would not
assent to every assertion that I hare made. But, .e
haps, after all, I shouild not have written these sen
tences, had not Soudi. Carolina, my notace State
through her agents regularly appointed'-in Edgefliek
District, employed myself and others to teach her In
digent children, and then refu'ed to pay any thinj
more than elesn per cent, on the amount due at the
end of the last quarter in 1854. The Commi'sionere
of the Free Schools for Edgefield, at their last siuing
repudiated School Reports passed in December last tc
the tune of eight hundred dollars. And why? The
Comptroller General gave information by letter that i
was illegal for the Commissioners to pay old debts:
that is to say, accordIng to the Statute in such casa
made and provided, no pert of the sum of $3,600, I<
which the District is annually entitled, can be usec
this year by the Board of Commistnera in liquidatior1
of the debts contracted last year over and above that
amount. If such a law does disgrace the Statute booki
of South Carolina,!I hope for the honor of the State
that it will be expunged by the legislature at its nexi
session. Unless this be done, and unless the Commis.
sioners be'allowed to pay the Teachers their just dues,
I for 'one shall feel very much like emigrating. IfI,
or any other man, should hire a number of men te
work twelve months, -and at the end of the year, It
should appear that moy salary was insufficient to pay
all that I owed them, then as a matter of course I
should have to make a draw upon my salary accruing
the, next year for the wherewithal to settle up old
scores. And who will have the eff'rontery to say that
Governments are not hound by the same'principles
which are of force in private life!i
It may not he improper, at this point, to say some.
thing in relation to our Free School system. It is be
coming fashionable among every class of citizens to
assert, on almost every occasion, that this system
works badly. But the money appropriated is all ab.
sorbed-very eeonosuicaily expended. In what way I
In educating the orphans and poor of the State. Bj
whoma r these children instructedI Jy teacherI
examined and approved of by the Commissioners of
Free Schools. Who appoint. the Commissioners?
The L.egislatur.. And yet there are twenty thousand
men and women (whites) in South Carolina who can
not resed and write! WI at is the natural inference.?
Tat there is a lacief money-tiat the Letgislature ap
prprianes too eperingly. I hold that education should
be free as water. Our schools ought to be common
to all without distinction. But until such schools as
these are thrown open to the pudtic, it is worse than
folly to cry dowu our present system of Free Schools.
Let the system be backed by a larger parse, and my
word for it, we shall see the cause of education flour
ishing like a green bay tree, from the sea board to the
KI1IG5VILLE, S. C., October 26,
A serious accident occurred at about half-past
one o'clock this afternoon, on the South Caroli
na Railroad, to the train from Augusta for
Charleston, a mile and a half above Branchrille,
a secoond claka car having been crushed into
stoma by tiie displacment of a bar of iron.
The car waewded, mostly with negroes, and
eve~ one was cut more or lead, one boy serious
ly. Capt..Crews, the conductor, wats badly hurt.
Mr. England, the baggage master, was cut in
two or three )iaees, but not seriously. Groat
praise is due Ihis gentleman and Mr. Matherson,
the orpress messenger, and Mr. Rabb, the en
gineer,for their promptness in assisting the in
jured. I had-no time to find out how far the
care were damaged. A boy named Miller had
his anele cttt badly.

the 27th Sept., 1855, after a protracted and painful
illness. Mrs. SARAH ANN STARKE, relict of the
late Major W. W. STAR., in the 52d year of her age.
The death of this most estimable lady leaves a void
in a large circle of friends which can. never be sup.
plied, and wsill ever be deplored. Her cheerful and
genial spirit, her gentle and unaffected manners, and
er social and generous disposition, enlisted the sym
pathies of all who approached her ad inspired gratifi
cation and delight. Her society aforled a long day
of sunshine and gladness; her unselfish nature pre
vented the intrusion on others of whatever personal
afflictions she may ever have experienced; her griefs,
if any, were hers.exclusively, while her joyoUttnen
derived in part from a vigorous constitution and a hap
py temperament-was imparted to her associates. If
the softer and sweeter.traits of her character were
eminently attractive and pleasing, the more sterling
qualities exacted the respect and won the esteem and
affection of friends, and endeared and auadhed her to
relatives and connexions by imperishable ties. She pos
sessed practical judgment in a high degree; a'd extra
ordinary energy.. She was the model of a wife, a de.
voted mother, an affectionate daughter and sister, a
charitable, steadfast and reliable friend, a pious and
sincere, yet unohtrurive christian of the Presbyterian
sect, having been a member oC the churchr for many
years; and of a purity of heart and a divinely forgiving
disposition, which, all in all. rendered her on-among
the kindest, the truest, and the best of womankind.

DIED, on the 28th Sept., of congestive fever, after a
short but serious illness, ALEXANDER, son of ED
WARD HowLE, aged 16 years and 4 months.
In his early life lie was noted for his singularity of
habits, being very different from boys of the same age,
choosing rather to be none than join in their favorite
amusements. Having recently connected himself with
the Church, and being a punctual member of the Sab.
bath school, he had by his general deportment evinced a
Christian dharacter, and being a dutiful son and a
kind r.nd affectionate brother, has left many sorrowing
friends. But we trust "that our loss is his gain."
DIxD, on the 11th inst., in the 77th year of his age,
JOHN SUMMER, of Pomaria.
The simple announcement of his death is sufficient.
There needs no long recapitulation of the life of use
fulness he has just completed, to bring him within the
remembrance of the many who knew him, who en.
joyed his hospitality and admired the industry, frank
ness and contentment he -continually displayed. His
many friends will be saddened by the intelligence, but
none ought to mourn-since lie has been permitted to
finish his fifty years of toil, and allowed a season of
rest, even in this world, to look hack with satisfaction
upon a well spent life, and calmly await the approach
