ENGLAND aND T uE u1ium I!A s,
The bubble of the recent war rumors has ex
ploded somewhat sooner, qpd with 'a somewhat
more unmistakable sound of the collapsing bub
ble, than we had anticipated; though we suppo
sed from the first, that the idea of war with Eng
land, frjn any cause of difference now existing,
was a mere chimera. But we have now before
us the evidence that the whole thing, from be
gbiing to end, is a fabrication, the object of
whih has apparently been to influende the mar
kets,like the famous story of the capture of
Sebastopol a year ago. It has had its effects,
and some speculators made a handsome profit
by the panic in Liverpool reported by the last
The National Intelligencer of Tuesday failed
to reach us, but that paper of Wednesday has
the following significant paragraph :
" In our brief pars ph of yesterday, referring
to recent correspondence between the Govern.
of the United States and that of Great Britain,
it was inadvertently stated that the latter had
not replied to the request to make known defi
nitely its construction of the Clayton. Bulwer
Treaty. The reverse is the fact. The British
Government has made a reply, agreeing to the
construction of our Government and submitting
a different construction, but leaving the question
open for further negotiations. The correspon
dence has not been angry or unfriendly in its
tone on either side. Indeed, from the urbanity
and courtesy which is known to characterize the
parties entrusted with it, no harshness or diplo
matic impropriety could have been expected.
This disposes of the Central American ques
tion very quietly, and very much to the taste of
all reasonable people. The cats and rats-the
Kinneys and Walkers, and their Spanish equiva
lents, may make prey of that miserable region,
but the lions and eagles will not quarrel over
such ignoble spoil.
In the Washington Union of the same date,
we find a still more comprehensive declaration,
evidently coming from an official source. At
the conclusion of a long article discussing the
motives that could have led to the recent very
stupid and malicious demonstrations of the Lon
don press, the Union uses the following decisive
" Whichever of these various conjectures as
to the object of the proposed expedition is cor
rect-if any such expedition there be, which is
in itself very doubtful-in every view of the
subject, it contains nothing which ought in the
least to trouble the equanimity of this country,
or which threatens in the slightest degree the
public peace. We are satisfied, upon such in
quiry as we have been able to matce, that no
cause, inducement, or plausible pretext of war,
or even of serious misunderstanding, can be
found in any. question now pending between
the two countries, and that, therefore, no appre
hension on the subject need be entertained by
the friends of peace, either in Great Britain or in
the United States."
So ends the farce, which has, however, been
not exactly a farce to a portion of the merchants
of the two countries.
The laughs will be very discordant in Liver
pool, at least. In this country the effect has
been trifling. But there is one grave lesson to
be learned from it, which is worth remembering.
The first news of a possible war with the Uni
ted States reversed and disordered the Liverpool
markets.. What would be the reality of such
an event ? There has never existed before so
great a trade between two nations as that which
is now carried on between England and the
United States. To break it up by a war, would
be to' tear asunder the main life-currents of both
countries. Fifty millions of people would in
stantly feel, by the mere fact of war, without
retbrence to the ravages of actual violence, that,
the value of all their property had suffired de
preciation-that a blight ha~d fallen on the earth
--that the ground was cursed for their sake.
Coinpared with this, the licensed robbery of the
seas, the plunder and burning of cities, and the
deadly collision of hostile fleets and armies,
would bie small calamities. For the working of
such woes to humanity, we ought to have a
great and noble justification; one which would
*net only satisfy the passions of the present, but
.the calmn and severe judgment of posterity.

SAvANNAH VALLrEY RAHLROAD.-A conven
tion of the stockholders in the Savannah Valley
Railroad Company was held at Anderson C. H.
on Wednesday, to consider the present condi
tion and future prospects of their road, and to
determine the course proper to be pursued so as
to secure its construction. After the meeting
was orgbnized for business, a committee was
appointed to report upon the various matters for
the consideration of which the convention was
ealed. This committee reported -in substance
that the road could only be built by abandoning
the scheme of connecting with Hamburg, and by
crossing the Savannah river at' Bullsluice and
connecting with the South Carolina Railroad at
Augusta. This report was adopted. To enable
the company to make this crossing and connec
tion, it was resolved to memorialize the Legisla
ture of this State to amend the charter.
Upon the adoption of the report and resolu
tions accompanying it, thoses-representing the
stock taken by citizens of Hamburg and of a
portion of Edgefield District, protested against
the action of the conventioni and withdrew from
all articipation in its proceedings.

THE IMP IN THE CHAIR.
"EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY."
TuE season has rolled'around when it becomes our
lot occasionally to squat down upon the chair editorial.
We appear this morning before you, gentle reader, for
the first time this winter. We promise nothing, pro
ferring that our acts should show, &c.,&c.,-you know
the rest. We believe it was Catu, the censor, who,
when attacked at a tea party, by Astyages of Persia,
on the score of his baldness, indignantly replied in his
broad vernacular-" E naihilo naihil ft." The same
thing may be said of us in thecourse of our labors. In
fact, we expect it. But, like Phedrus the son of Can
ute, we will go on our way rejoicing, utterly regard.
less of the slings and arrows of outrageous fools.
Ta following handsome note was politely sent into
the " Advertiser Office," a few days ago, by Ma.
CRANE, of FRAZIEa's Store. The apple accompany
ing it was large enough for as all, and as red and as
beautiful as the eye could desire. Thanks to Mr. C.
His note is given as a model for others, who may find
it in their hearts to remember the Printer:

IT will be seen in a card elsewhere that the Pro
prietors are calling on you to come forward and settle
up; and in our humble opinion we think every one of
you should do it, for if that article "Money" aint
scarce about this Establishment, then we are nigAtly
mistaken. Why, to tell the honest truth, (what some
Editors never do,) we have not seen a ten cent piece,
our weekly wages, for lo! these many days. And we
can truthfully exclaim, in the refined language of
Newton, the poet:
" It has been so long since we saw a dollar,
We would not know one from a horse collar."
NOTICE, HUNTSMEN I
The shade of Nimrod has appeared to us in a dream.
He swears that he will henceforward blast the. luck of
all huntsmen who run half-grown Foxes, or who catch
Partridges in traps. They are equally henous offences
against the laws of true sport.
At the particular request of our sweetheart, and for
the preservation of an article we are wofully fond of,
we present our lady friends with the following very
valuable receipe. We hope some kind matron will
try it on a couple of jars, and if it proves good, send
us a jar in part payment for this piece of information:
To KEEP PaREsatVEs.-Apply the white of an egg,
with a suitable brush to a single tbickness of white
tissue paper, with which cover the jars, overlapping
the edges an inch or two. When dry, the whole will
become as tight as a drum.
This'is the third week of November 1855; and we
fid ourself without a stiver in our vest-pocket prepar
atory to the approaching Christmas holidays. The
circumstance naturally suggests the enquiry, wvhether
or not we shall be caught thus penniless on the third
week of Nfovember 1856.
THlE DAY WE CELEBRATE.
To.day, we are informed, the last brick has been
placed upon the highes:, and best building ever erect
ed at Edgefield C. H. We mean the Odd Fellows
and Masonic Associational Structure. (When we
write, we cannot confine ourself to common terms.)
We regret to hear thr~t some of the subscribers are so
mirerably slow in giving their obligations to the Asso
ciation for the balance of their subscriptions. Can it
be, that repudiation is to be the order of the day in old
Edgefield ? " Get away, vile thought !"
Muon has been said of the probable prices of this
article. Our opinion is, that every body ought to sell
at 8 cens-better t'ais, certainly, than the chance of
much less. We have a pound and a half saved out of
sundry egg bakets, and rather than wait till npring
we will take an even dame for the lot.
OUR BUTCHER SLIGHTLY TAKEN.
A rmw evening. since we heard a gentleman accost
GooDMNa, our energetic butcher, w hto has so strenu
ously endeavored to keep us from starving during the
past summer, with the following question, " Hello,
Bill ! If a pound of beef coat ten cents, how many
teeth is there in a handsaw 1" He gave it up immedi
ately. But his invincible assistants, Pete Murrel and
Pate Blocker, when we left, were multiplying the age
of the last beef they killed, (which they said wasn 23
year. old,) by the number of hairs in his tail, to find
the answer. We have not heard the result yet.
A remarkable instance of childish sprightliness oc
curred in this vicinity on Saturday last. The litdle
boy's name was Ned this time. A bird flew in at the
window, whereupon his mother exclaimed, " Looli
Neddy at the pretty little birdy." And Neddy did
look, and was delighted. How simply beautiful, and
beautifully simple !

A Deplorable Accident, Almost.

For the Advertiser.
Ma. EDITOR: It is not our custom to write for the
papers; but we 'think if there ever was a time when
men should express their views publicly and freely,
now is the time.
We are well pleased with the article, of your worthy
correspondent, "LUDtuAtsTKR," which appeared in
the Advertiser sometime ago; and can readily assent
to his remarks upon the hard lot of the school-master.
To use the metaphor of your correspondent, we have
been harnessed to the same locomotive for several
years, and begin to feel very much like running off
the track. The vocation of a teacher is far from be
ing pleasant, remunerative or honorable. He is the
constant victim of liars, slanderers, tale-bearers and
every other class of persons, who have nothing else
to do, but to meddle with other people's business. He
tries to please everybody-Can he do it! Impossible!
He will miss it as far as the old man and his son and
darkey did in the Grecian fable. One is displeased
because the teacher spares the rod. Another thinks
" Young America" should rule instead of being ruled,
therefore, his children must not be whipped. Another
says he commences too late and dismisses too early.
Another is dissatisfied because his children do not re
cite lessons enough during the day; he judges .their
progress by the number of leaves they turn. Others
assume to themselves the title of "Connoisseurs," and
endeavor to set themselves up as standards to be gov.
erned by, and of course they are displeased if the
teacher does not follow their different plans of teach.
ing. We might point out a great many more frivolous
objections that are raised against the School-master,
but we forbear, because, if we could point out all the
whims, notions, caprices, plans, &c., in regard to school
teaching, and apply the rule .of addition to them, the
sum total would be a heterogeneous mass of nonsense.
To conclude this part of our subject, we do desire to
see teachers occupy that position which their merits
We will new say something in regard to the Free
School System. It seems to us that writers uponthis
subject, have overlooked the true cause of so many of
the poor class being uneducated in South Carolina.
They say it is the lack of money. Not so. This only
acts as a remote cause by diminishing the number of
Schools. It is the Teachers tt at suffer most from the
close-fistedness of the Legislature. We know of no
instance where any Teacher has excluded an indig.
ent pupil, because the public would not pay his tuition.
Ask the pror parent why he does not send his children
to School, and you will learn the cause immediately.
His reply wilt be, " I can't fix my children of to
School like my neighbor. I have no dour, nor no good
clothes for them, and. if I send them to school in this
condition, the finger of scorn will be pointed at them."
The Legislature may appropriate millions of dollars to
educate the poor; but so long as this false delicacy,
or selfish pride exists in the bosom of parents, they will
not be educated.
Ilow is this to be remedied I lst. We know of no
better plan than to enact a law compelling every man,
who is not able to educate his children, to send them
to School at a certain age, and keep them there a cer
tan length of time. 2d. Let our Commissioners be
educateasmen, capable of carrying Teachers through
a thorought examination, and let them Iho paid for their
services. 3d. Let every Teacher undergo a thorough
examination, (net merely a form as is now the case,)
before be can receive a dollar from the public. And
lastly, let our Legislature appropriate money sufficient
to pay the Tuition, (paid by the citizens,) of every
Orphan and indigent child in South Carolina.

During the forenoon a Wooden cross, which
had been erected was forcibly pulled down.
Early in the afternoon an American flag was
raised amid the cheering of a considerable num

to the exercises and the occasion. Mir. Russell,
acting Mayor, pulled the flag down amid shouts
of "hustle him out" and hisses. But on his
leaving it was again put up. A rush was made
for the corner stone which had been prevtously
laid and several attempts made to remove it
from it's setting, which was prevented, as we
learn, by the exertions of Marshal Walker and
Mr. Constable Leach, who kept the crowd at
bay. The Catholies, finding they would be op

DIFFICULTY wIH SWtERLANID.-The New

upon the Council of that Confederation for their
reason in refusing to allow an adopted citizen of
the United btates to reside at Basle, and we

They may that the individual in question having
been exiled on account of certain political crime',
the Government approves the conduct of the
police, because, "by his becoming z, citizen of
the United States, he has not lost his quality of
fugitive in regard tohia former fatherland, and
hence the former resolutions of the Government 1
still apply to him." They. also say that the 1
acquisition of a new citizenship is used by many
fugitives, not as an end, but merely as a means
of re-entering their former position under the
protection of a new.government and continuing
their former . intrigues. Therefore, taking this
view of the matter, the "Bundersath" has deter. I
mined first to inquire more particularly into the
personal qualites and relations of the obnoxious
person, and- reserve its final decision for the
result of these inquiries. In conclusion, they t
observe that the American Minister having con- i
fined himself solely to the desire to learn the I
motives of the proceedings in the case, there
cannot, consequently, in the most remote man
ner, be a question oT international conflict."

the rows, and afterwari, not being able to de
