ADDRESS BY GEN. McGOWAN.
A copy of an address delivered during the past sum
mer, by Gen. SAMuEL McGOwAN of Abbeville, be
fore the students of Erskine College, is upon our table.
We regret that we hav. not time to sketch its beauties
and point to its excellences as we could desire to do.
It abounds in striking reflections and nobleser.timents
which we should be glad to place before our readers.
We must content ourself at present however with the
anticipation of plucking from its pages hereafter sundry
passages already marked for that purpose.
WE find that our old friend, Mr. G. L. PENN, has,
,till (as ever) on hand a supply of those excellent
cigars which console the smoker while they gently
inspire faith in the judgment of the caterer. He
has also a great many other nice things, buckwheat,
cheeses and many articles of similar stamp just suited
to the season. Drop in! Drop itt !
P A friend has furnished us with a long article
from the New Y-ork Observer, under the caption of
" The Bible and Slavery," but owing to its length and
the crowded state of our columns, we are compelled
to defer its publication for a few weeks.
We are indebted to our friend, Mr. MLLEa, for
several very interesting California papers, for which
he will please accept onr thanks. These sheets are
conducted with great ability, and do credit to the
State from which they emanate. They are on file for
the inspection of any who may wish to see and read
the news from the land of gold.
" WHAT ARE WE TO DOI"
TitE Mercury's three several articles, in reply to our
last article under the above caption, have just fully
come to hand-too late, we fear, to admit of so exten
ded a notice as their length and elaborateness would
seem to require. If we dispose of them somewhat
summarily, our cotemporary must attribute it to any
thing but the want of a proper respect for his v:ews.
Forconvenience sake, we shall take the Mercury's
articles seriatim. And, first, to the articleofNov 19:h:
It begins with extracts, from our reply, of such
passages as suit the purposes of a rejoinder, utterly
ignoring, then and thereafter, the many and strong
qualifications with which these passages are placed in
direct juxta-position. The conclusion is forthwith
drawn that our arguament is based upon two planks,
first the unity of otur State, and sccond a unioni of the
" First then," says the Mercury, "wtill the partici
pation of South Carolina in the Cincinnati Convention
prescrvc the unity of thc State 7" And a half-column
is devoted to thte elucidation of the negative of this
Ihere is a seemingly deliberate effort to distort our
views und mis-state our position, which we find it
difficult to excuse in so fair and high-toned a sheet as
.the Mercury. We did not say that our State's going
into Convetntion would unite our people. It was the
uippearanc-e of actutal divisions amongst us, the very
same to wihic-h the Mercuery alludes, that prompted
ouir suggestiotns in this matter. We had heard the
same ' cr y o f National Democracy in our mountains"
which startled thme Mercury's ears. We had witnessed.
the amigry response which this " cry" elicited from the
lowlands of South Carolina ; and we thought we
foresaw, to use the Mercury's words, that the result
might be to " produce deep divisions all over the State."
It was a time wheni such divisions were most earnest.
ly to be deprecated. And it occurred to us jutst then
to throw out a proposition by which they might be
averted. We ditd so conscietiously, and with asingle
view to the peace of our State and the Union of the
South. The .'Ilercury calls us to account as though
we had aimed a blow at the vet'y heart of South Caro.
lina's t onor. We reply in the rational and suggestive
tone of our first artdcle, still holding up the union of
oiur own people as aprereguiuite toany action the State
might adopt in the premises. Whereupon the Mercury
bestows upon us ihis three long-drawn articles,.the first
of which is expenided in combating a position which
exists solely in the brain of our assailant. We will only
now add that we honestly supposed our very guarded
proposition would afford a ground upon which all rea
sonatily conservative men in the, State could unite;
and, despite the Mercury's zealous exerrions to give it
an ungracious air, wre are disposed yet to hold to that
opinion. If the reverse shall prove to be -correct, we
have but acted thme part of an 'humble bat independent
Carolinian and shall experience no semblance of mor
tification that our views have been over-ridden. We
proceed to the Mericury's article of Novemaber 20th:
It opens withi a'flourish of trumpets, scarcely excell
ed since rtar ay of romantic memory when six heralds
sounded the entramice of a certain proud Templar into
"the lists of St. G"eorge, near to the Preceptory of
'remplestowe." A high-sounding paragraph, that
mnighit form the introduction to a Phillipic, leads our
cotemporary on into another, the burden of which is to
set f',rth the erroneous and unealled-for inuendo that
we are seeking " concealment" of our "obect" under
the proposition we have had the honor of promulging.
The injustice of such a fling has doubtless been per
ceived by the good taste of our cotemporary before this
and we prefer to forbear further comment thereupon..
The argument of the Mercary, to show that our
plan will have no good effect upon Southern union, is
embodied in the one-third portion of this second
article, and is to the effect as follows: First comes
the assertion that South Carolina's going into Con
vention with her sister States of the South must
fail in achieving any umion in defence of our right.
And the reason given is, because it can only effect a
union of the Democratic party. The assumption is
annexed, that it will Intensify the bitterness of party
feeling at the South and rather increase our divisions.
The triumph then of the Democracy in the Southern
States has amounted to nothing. A nd the hallelujahs
of the Mercury at each successive victory have been
but empty phrases. And Democratic majorities in
the Southern States are humbugs for any real good
How is this ? Did not the Mercury believe, In 1851,
that, if South Carolina had proven for separate State
action by the result of the popular vote, such action
would have been had ? Is itreally nothing for a party
to obtain control of a State ? Is it nothing for a
party to obtain control ofotne-half of the Unioni Is It
nothing for a party to obtsin control of the whole
Unioni If the Democratic party are in the ascenden
cy in South Carolina, does it not shape the course of
the State ? Is not the same true of Virginia, Georgia,
Alabamsa, Mississippi atnd the resti If then the Deme
cratic party are victoriousein all the Southern States,
is not the fruit to be the triumph of their policy what
ever it may be ? And is it nothing, looking at the
question front'this stand-point, to unite the Democratic
party South in defence of Southern Rights? This is
all we have ever thought to gain as the immediate re
suit of co-operation with our sister States in the mat
tr of the Cincinnatti Contentioni But the indirect
results might be greater, far greater. If we do not
bring the Democratic party in Convent'on fully up to
the notch of Southern requirement, we fail back upon
ourselves and become a united Southern party. Would
that we could become so at once and without any in
termadiate efifortin another direction. But this ef'ort
We are oompelled to make, to satisfy all in our ranks
that it is necen~ry to draw the line of demarcation
A.etw. e. dem.w gr..t v.eins. the Nort h and the
Sortt If we attain our object, the recogntuon of
Southern Rights, without drawing that line, can we
fail to be satisfiedI If not, we are united. Not only
will Democrats join hands, but Whigs and Know
Nothings will also come into the ranks in sufficient
numbers to swell the Southern Party into a most tri
umphant and controlling power. The latter political
organization especially is reputed to occupy high
Southern ground. Scarcely any are below the Geor
gia platform. What hinders then that all come to
gether eventually upon Southern ground? What but
unworthy jealousies and petty spite ? The Democratic
Banner South waves aloft with the determination
emblazoned upon it to secure Southern equality in the
Union at all hazards. Is there any better Southern
party than this in existence, or is there a probability of
forming one at this time? If not, where is the reason
in refusing to work witir the machinery we have at
hand until we can get better? The Mercury discour
ses of the happy prospects of Southern Union that were
lately rising up to view. What were these prospects
but the successes of the Democratic party? Are they
not still cheering! Or does it deteriorate them, that
South Carolina thinks of joining her strength to the
common cause in conformity with the common hope
of all her natural allies! We are told that any action
of the kind on the part of South Carolina will "strike
a pang to the hearts of true but scattered men who
have watched her course of independence with patri
otic pride ?" Does the Mercury speak advisedly, or
" by inspiration," In enunciating this fact ? For one,
we are cognisant of actual declarations by friends in
other States to the contrary ? Not a month ago we
had the privelege of a conversation on this very sub.
ject with one who has since become President of the
Alabama Senate. He was a staunch secessionist in
1851, and looked to our State then with pride as be
still does with hope. His language was unequivocal
in allusion to what he trusted would be the action of
South Carolina in the future. It was that she would
go heart and hand with her sisters of the South in
every measure possible for the promotion of Southern
power. He was one at least who would rejoice to see
his native State sacrifice hers.uples so far, as to act
in the present emergency with her friends. We in
line to believe that such is the sentiment of all our
old secession friends in the other States who are not
given up blindly to impracticable ultraism. Look to
the last resolution of the late Democratic mass meet
ing held at Milledgeville, Ga. Is it not abundant
proofof what our friends in that State desire us to do?
The same doubtless is the feeling in Virginia, Alabama
ahdlMississippi. And the head and front of our of
fending is, that, to meet this feeling as well as afford
our own State politicians a fair ground of agreement,
we have suggested a mode by which South Carolina
might do what the times seem to demand without los
ing sight of her grand political aim, Southern Equal
ity or Independence. Since the triumph of Co-opera
tion in South Carolina, the Mercury will surely not
maintain that we have or can have any other aim.
And we certainly could not have a better.-Why not
then make all our energies bend to the promotion of
this object! The Cincinnati Convention promises
to afford an opportunity for doing much in the cause.
If our men of character and political ability are sent
to it, they may mould its action or at all events direct
its results for Southern good. It is an extraordinary
juncture that we are passing; the meeting of that body
may he fraught with extraordinary consequences; and
it may be true wisdom for South Carolina to depart in
this instance (if never again) from her usual policy.
If she shall go with her sister States on the conditions
we have suggested, she will have sacrificed no princi
ple and may attain a great end.
We are loth :o follow the uncharitable example of
the Mercury in scanning the motives of gentlemen.
But there is a development in the latter part of this
second article which attracts our attention and
awakens some slight suspicion that oilier feelings, be
sides an absolute and undivided regard for the honor
of South Carolina, is at work in this heated opposition
to going into Convention. Trhere is an apprehension
expressed, that if the State now go into this measure,
it wtill be to " lend all her influence to these very
men"-meaning the " one or two skilful politicians"
who are for taking action in the premises with the
oilher Southern Statts. The circumstance, without
comment,. is sufficiently indicative of the way the
wind blows. Somne gntlemen have long been sen
sitively jealous of the control of South Caroli
na ; and rather than lose what they vainly conceive to
be their strong igrasp upon her neck, they would have
her play A chilles in his tent to the end of the chapter.
But perhaps the Mercury knows nothing of such a
One word as to the Mefrcury's insinuation of our
changed "allegiance." We are not in the habit of
vaunting our devotion to South Carolina. But we
think we can truthfully say that we "kneel at her
shrine" with as much of filial love and reverence as
do our cotemporaries of the Mercury. The colurs we
bear too are as unstained as are those of the Mercury.
And we intend to keep them so. Au to what we have
proposed or advocated in regard to the Cincinnati
Convention, our whole and sole object has been the
good of ou.deetion and the welfare of South Carolina.
So shall it be to the last.
We have neit' er time, space nor inclination to criti
cize the Mercury's article No 3., however prejudiced
we may regard some of its colorings of incidents and
facts. Our position restsenot on the policy or propriety
of Conventions in the gen-ral, bitt upon the present
imperious niecesaity for complete Southern union for
the salvation uf Southern interests.
THE P3ESIDENCY OF OUR COLLEGE.
SMANY names have been suggested for this high and
responsible position; aiid the Board of Trustees will
have to decide upon their relative claims in a very
short time. We have alluded to the subject again and
again as the different candidates were put in nomina
ion; and have felt prompted to indite a word of com
mendation in regard to several of them. Our corres
pondent, " ALUMexus," reminds ua that we have said
but little of one of the most prominent candidates
Dr. Faartcis Lxtaza. Our failing to do so has not,
we asure " AL~UMUS," been the result of any indif
ference to eur guceni professor's nomination.
We were one of the thirty-five students who hap
pened to have their College experience identified with
the darkest hour of our Alma Mater's history-we
mean the time wheti the old regime went out and the
new came in. It was ini 1835. Dr. Laza was then
prominent among the newly-created Faculty; andl
there nre sundry associations, which had their hirth
at that time, well calculated to keep alive within our
breast a mindfulness of his. integrity and worth. He
is now the only one left in the Campus of the brilliant
corps of instructors then installed. And it would be
unnatural in those, who knew him at his outset
amongst us and have been aware of his continued ex
ertions ever since, to neglect his claimi to preference
in the South Carolina College.
In a literary point of vie'w, Dr. LEtBza confessedly
ranks among the first men in Amer:ca ; and from this
fact alone the inference is fair, that his election to the
Presidency ol our State Inststution would enhance its
repuatiomn and extend its limits of usefulness. But
besides this, he has been and is still an improving
man. As a professor, he has been assiduous in the
discharge of his duties to the College and ambitious
of giving her a high rank among the Colleges of our
country. And if, as "AL~UxxUs" thinks, his popular
ity among the students is established and his influence
with them equal to the requirements of the Presiden
tial chair, we cannot see why his claims should not

For the Advertiser.
THE "SOUTHERN LIGHT"
The editor of the Advertiser will oblige me by al
lowing room for me to say, that, amongst many evi
dences of regard shown towards me, in efforts to ex
tend the circulation of my contemplated journal, there
has recently come to my knowledge the existence of
opposition, from certain quarters, on the ground of my
connection with the Church at this place; and, sin
gularly enough too, from persons professing for me
personally the highest esteem, and whom I was taught
in my childhood to regard as men of God, and whom
I am still constrained to regard as such, notwithstand
ing their strange opposition to the enterprise.
Well, in the name of reason and religion, of our time
honored and God-honored principles, has it come to
this! A Church and an Associatoi get into a contro.
versy which results in a separation. A 'man from
a distance comes to take charge of said Church,-bring
ing testimonials of good character and standing-is
received as such in the Churches and community all
around, and formally recognized as such by the
Association. This man proposes to publish a religious
journal, in the getting up of which and with the con
duct of which the Church has no more to do than it
has with the management of said man's plantation
and this, the private properly of the man, is decried,
on the ground of his being identified with the offending
Tell it not in Edgefield, lest the Catholics rejoice
lest the daughters of. the Universalists triumph. Think
of it, thinking men, and ask yourselves the question,
what would this principle eventuate in if fully carried
Iet me say a very few words in relation to the brief
history of the " SouTaxaN LoaT."
I do not know that I ever said a word to any of the
members of the Edgefield Church about this matter
until I had fully made upmy mind to it, and had made
arrangements for the publishing of the journal with
the junior proprietor of the "Advertiser." Just before
the close of the last Court of Sessions, I consulted a
number of prominent brethren on the subject, from
various parts of the District, all of them in the Asso
ciation, and some opposed to this Church,and without
an exception they at once approved of the enterprise,
and gave an assurance of their patronage and in
fluence. This determined my course. I then inform
ed some of the members of this Church of the matter,
and behold ! I met with discouragement and dissua
sion on the spot.
Now, if to obtain subscribers it is necessary for me
to deny that lam" identified" with this Church, then
let them not be forthcoming. I am identified with the
Church, and necessarily so, being a member of it,and
the Minister in charge. We are moreover on as good
terms perhaps, as any Church and Preacher in the
State ; but if God spares me to conduct the proposed
journal for the next twelve months, I think its readers
will be convinced that I am not a man to be used to
accomplish the designs of other parties.
In conclusion, I ask again in reason and religion's
name, if the course indicated by some brethren is cal
culated to bring about the much desired " reconcilia.
tion ?" Would it not be more politic, more christian,
every way better, to take the ground of the mover of
the resolution which separated the Association and
the Church, that the quarrel between them is done
that both parties occupy the same relation to the de
nomination that they always did; and that it is the duty
of both to lay aside all bad feeling, and pray and labor,
together if they catif, apart if they must, for the pro
motion of a common cause ?.
For my own part I have only to say, that having
visited and prenched at various Churches, andl been
received with a degree of cordiality, greater than
which I do not expect often to meet with this side of
Heaven, I fully and freely endorse the sentment:
And to such may all come In the blessed hope of per
fect love and unfading glory.

whom Prospectuses have been sent, to forward me
the names they have obtained, as we desire to com

E.TIlLXAN'S REXAEES AT THE ATE
In readIng a " Report of a meeting hteld int Aiken,
on Tuesday the 13th of November, to take into con
sideration the propriety and practicabtlity of dividing
Barnwoll and othier large Districts," and the accom
panying analysis of thte remarks of Mr. G. D. TILLr
MtAN, of Edgefield-(we use the word remnirks, as it
would be an unpardonable misnomer to dignify thtem
with the appellation of arguments)-we t ere forcibly
struck witht the following sentences:
"He began by enamerating the many evils whicht
all large jttdicial Districts suffered ; he contended thtat
such Uistricts promote crime, and th~at the streat ex
tent of Edgefleld and Barnwell was the prolific cause
of the many homicides and af'rays thtat occurred with
in their horders ; that a two weeks court frequently
induced parties to forego an adjudication of their dif
ficultie-s by law, and to settle themn by their own struong
arm ; that the difficulty of inducing witnesses from a
distance to attendl Court, often obstructed the proper
administration of justice, &c."
We are not prepared to adnaits that a large District
is subject to greater evils than a small one. The
evils of the one are counteracted by the benefits of
the other. Perfect juistice has never yet been reached,
and it is a well known fact to te initiated and ex
perienced, itat litigation is every where attended tw ith
veation, expense and uncertainty. The law's delay
is proverbial, and not incident to small or large Dis
tricts. Trhat such a sligl.t difference in the extent of
territory should be the "prolific cause of htomiciades
and affrays" is ridicul-rnsly absurd. We have always
been tatught that human-natture is a constant quantity,
and will be alike developed under similar circumstan
ces, and we can not admit that imaginary geograph.
ical lines can produce such differences, when the
laws and government are the same.
Are not these differences rather the evidence of an
abuse of the high-toned and chivalric spirit, that per
vades and animates their citizens, and which is alike
enobling and comendable!? The Hon. A. P. BU
rLza is correctly regarded a "representative man"s
of the citizens of Edgefield District. 'The following
extract is in direct opposition, and wholly incompat
ible with, the above quotation. Mr. T. is reported to
"That the lawyers would oppose it, from the fact,
that large Districts increased hntigation ; and that in
stead of seeking business themiselves, business was
brotight to them, and because as a body they were
competitors fur offices in the gift of the Legislature,
which was under the control of the Parishes."
It will be seen by reference to the first quotation,
that he said, "two weeks Court frequently induced
parties to forego an adjudication of their difficulties
by law." If he is not thus refuting his own statement,
I am at a loss to arrive at his meaning. Now this
division question affeicts lawyers a. a class, no more
tan other persons; for if the Districts are judicially
divided, lawyers can, and will attend the Courts ; and
if politically divided they will settle there, and, as a
matter of course, attend to the cases of litigation.
The maxim of Political Economy, that the supply
will equal the demand, holds true, in the case of law
yers, as in oilier professions.
Hie farther ay., "and that instead of seeking busi
ness themselves, business Is brought to them."
Now I affirm that lawyers as a chass do not seek
or electioneer for business; though there may be in
dividvai easceptions to ste general rule, lie also as
srs, " that as a body they were competitors for of.
fices in the gift of the Legislate, which was tinder
the contra I of the Parishes." So far as regards the
latter portion of this statement is is unsusttained by
the facts of the record. All of the offices in the gift of
the Legislature are conferred, by a joint ballot of the
Senate and House of Representatives, (except those
petty offices, the duties of which are confined to the
House and Senate.) There are seventy-four DIstrict
and fifty Parish votes in the House. In the Senate
the District votes stand twenty-two to twenty-three
Parish, giving a majority of twenty-three to the Dis
tricts. Hence, Is will be perceived, that Instead of
the Legislature being under the control of the Parishes,
it Is just the reverse, lint we are not surprised that
this ould-be-Statesman, with jaundiced eye, should
have mistaken these facts also. That lawyers as
pire to offices of distinction is admitted, and by all
fair and lhberal minded men, it must be regarded as a
legitimata consequence of their profession. In fact,
the public admiration which attends upon distinguish
edabilities, constitutes always a part of teir reward,
greater or less, in proportion as is is higher or lower in
degree. The Chancellors, Judges, Solicitors, and
two-thirds of the Senators and Congrese men are nnih

We have thus attempted to refute, in an humble (
manner, the charges preferred by this modern Is
mael against lawyers. For we waive the discussion
of the formation of new Districts, and the consequent
increase of our political influence to older and more
experienced men. But we ever hold ourselves ready
to attempt to repell and refute all insinuations, and
libelous assertions, that directly, or by implication,
tend to reduce the standard of our profession.
The soldier that lowers his flag in the hour of battle,
justly receives the rebuke and condemnation of his
fellows in arms; and I can but endorse the remark of
a distinguished Chancellor of our State, that "It is a
foul bird, that will defile his own nest."

THE COLLEGE PRESIRNCY.
Ma. EDITOR : Among the many aspirants to the
Presidency of our College, I regret to see you and
others so reldom mentioning the claims of Dr. LEIaEa.
He is certainly the very man foi. ie placeand emin
ently qualified to discharge its tijauts. In the College
I have reason to think his pupularity is now on an en
viably solid basis; and I doubt iahy man could be
selected who would wield the sceptre of Collegiate
authority with more discretion and fairness, or who
would prove in the end more tc table to the State
at large. ALUMNUs.

ARRIVAL OF STEAMER CANADA.
HALIFAX, Nov. 21.
The steatner Canada has arrived, with Liver.
pool dates of November.10.
Owing to the light stock, cotton at Liverpool
had advanced #d ott middlingfu'd" lower grades,
and 1.8d on-fair qualities.-with sales during the
week of 77,500 bales, including 25,000 for spec
ulation. and export. The stock was 423,000
bales, including 195,000 of American. The
quotations were: fair Orleans 6jd middling 53.8d.
The market closed steady.
Breadstuffs were active, at an advance of is
per barrel in flour 3d in wheat;and 2s Gd in corn.
Canal four 43 a 44s. Baltiutre 45s. Corn 47s.
Provisions were genera.ly unbanged.
The news from the seat of war was unimpor
tant. There were reports of batties near Pere
kop and Simpheropol, but they were doubtless
falie. The, l'urkiah Embassy had received des
patches, stating that the allied fleets comuenced
the bombardment of Nicolaeff on the 29th and
continued it during the next day. The despatch.
es do not state the result, and the story is doubt
ed. The latest authentic accounts say that the
fleets had done nothing in the Dnieper and that
Todlever was placing Nicolueff in a thorough
state of defence. Odessa would probable be
abandoned, and the guns taken to Nicolaetf.
The Russians continued to fire upon Sebasto
pol, and the French report the story that the
Russians were retrta'ing from the North side.
A difficulty had arisen between England and
Spain in regard to some disputed claims.
An insurrection was reported in Sicily, but
there were no details.
It is said that Russia has accepted the office
of Mediator between Denmark and the United
The monthly returns of the Bank of France
show a diminution of ?1,000,000 in specie.
There were various peace rumors; one of
which was that t deputation of diplomatists
would meet the Czar at Warsaw, to arrange fmr
the renewal of negotiations.
[ he panic regarding a war vith the United
States had entirely subsided in Englanid.
PUntcHASE. of CUBA.--A letter from London
to the New York Courier and Enquirer, informs
the public that the purchase of Cuba by the
United States, is possible, if-the latter wilI give
two hundred millions of dollars, one-half to be
npplied to the liquidation of the foreign debt of
Spain, and the other half to the liqtidation of
the home debt. One hundred millionis of dollars
is about one-fifth of the face value of the for
eign debt of Spain, which stated in full is ?100,
000,000, but the faith of spain is ojf such a I
nature that the bond-holders would gladly ac
uept one hundred million.iaf dollars frotn the
United States as a full payment.

District, Mrs. MA RTH A HOW LE, relict of the late
WILLI.AM HOWL~S, aged 69 years. Shte has left a
numerous family of Chtildren and Grand-children, toI
mourn liar lust.. She was connected witi Red-Oak
Grove Church, for 26 years, and was a dutiful and
loving wife, a kind and affectionate mother, and much
beloved by her domestics, and alt who knew her.
DIED, very suddenly of an appoplectic fir, whil-t
engaged in sawing board timber, ont the 20th Septem
ber last, Mr. H ENRY JONES, in the 43d year of his
Mr. JONEs emigrated to this State and District from
Virginia abont twenty-seven yeats sintce, and shortly
after united himself with theeBaptist Phurch at Da
mascus. He was an orderly member of the Church
at the tima of htis death, and was regarded as an in
dustious. law.ahlding and worthy citizen. In fact
e was, in the strictest sense of the term, " an honest
n-the noblest work of God."
He has left a disconsolate and affectionate wife, 1
with a large circle of frienids to mourn their loss.
May we alt f..llow his example of piety, and so live it
in this world that we will be prepared to meet thea
tyrant death calml:, with a fuilt asaturance that aftsr j
eatht, we have a happy and peaceful hums " nut made
with handts, eternal in the heavetns," and where
"In that pure home of tearless joy
Earth's parted f.-iends aal meet,
WVith smiles of love that never fade,t
And blessedness complete ;
'There, there adisus are sounds unknown, n
Death frowns not on the scene,
But life, and glorious beautty, shine,.
Untroubled and serene."

He was biorn in Edgefleld Distriet, South Carolinta, t<
November 27th, 1836, and died after'a long and pain
ful struggle, with Typhoid Pneumonia, Hie has left
a large ctrche of deeply-stricken relations and friends -
who mourn his seeming untimely los; for it is a loss
o society, rand Is so felt, thoughtlte deceased was a
youth of only nineteen summers.
Might we be prmitted to compliment poor fallen
ature, It wovld bpleasant to indulg here a moment ;
but suffice it to say, lhe was beloved by all who knew
im for his natural sweetneis of disposition, and high
toned moral character. It is said, he never violated
is father's command.
lHe was truly of great promise, and well enjoyed
bright hopes for his future career of lndnstry and hap- li
piness. But the Lord gave all that was good or of ii
romise about him, and the Lord hath taken away.-- d
'Blessed be the name of the Lord." And why should
ve weep! He cannot come to us, but it is certain we
hall go to him.
