. DEATH OP JUDOE DERRIENI.
The sssbjolnod notice of the late Judge Br.a azxN is
copied from the Charleston Courier. In his death,
Georgia has truly sustained the loss of one of her most
noble sons. But his fame is a gem, as bright as the
brightest, and will be set by the future h~istoriana, prom
inent in the diadem of Georgian worth and talent,
there to beam wIth purest lustre for ages to come.
Our condolence is respectfully tendered to that portion
of the .famlly of the deceased-residing in our commauni
Our telegrahic column records the death of JOHN
-McPaErssoN IE aRalN,a srivorof the first school of
-distinguished statesmen in our sister State of Georgia,
and a citizen no less esteemed and esemplary for the
nobter, hus, too often neglected qualities or heart, than
for abilities and station...
After assiduously counting anti winning the
highest local honors of the laborious and exactimg
profession of the law, and devoting huis ripening talents
to public services in various way., Mr. BERaiEN'
was'elected to the United States Senate, and presided
overits Jndiciary Committee in the term of 1827-9.
On the first installationi of Andrew Jackson, in March,
1829, Mr. BEaniRN was elected and confirmed as
Attorney General, to succeed WILLIrAM Wa a-r; and
it Is a striking illustration and confirmation, both of
professional and personal merit and worth,thttthis
selection-niotwithstanding the embittered animosities
of parties, and the exacting examinations consequently
given to all the cabinet nominees-was received with
general and nearty approval.
The deceased served his state ably, nobly and with
honorable aceeptance, in sundry trusts of worth and
grave responsibility, and In all exhibited the hitgher
and better qualities which a Sotuthern constituency
appreciate and honor, when found in such rare con
junction with superior- talents.- He had .borne long
and faithfully in a varied career, the honors which
tihe untesssee confidence .of his countrymen could
bestow, and his dleath has canonised another bright
exemplar worthy of beitig held In reverence by those
who would serve their country.
TilE DUTIES-OP THE PRESS.
The Colombia Exassiner puts forth these truthful
"Gentlemen of the Press, we are called to a high
-and responsible station in conducti-. g the free press of
a people. Whilst the press of the United States is free
io print and to promulgate such opinions and doctrines
as it ay see fit, without the interference of the Cottrt
-of Star chamber, or procuring an imprimatur from the
Stats, yet It behooves'us to guard wvell its purity and
fidelity--to keep it strictly within its legitimatesphere.
We oneive the first duty of a press tn a government
like ousto be to ineulcate a reverence fo*r the Consti
gotion,g7ndacseerfUl obedieneeto the laws of the coun
try. Ba long s the provisions of that compact, which
assoctates the States in political union, are jealottsly
observed by all parties, so hurg will our liberties he
safe. That maasterly production of pure patriots has
withstoed many a shock ; it has been deviated from in
many instances, yet, thanks tothe indomitable Patriot
ism of the American people, It still survives-the- bea
con-light to the people of every nation, kindred, and
tongue, who seek for liberty. Throughoust the politi
cal history of the United States, we are proud to say,
the atudent thereof will discorer that the statesmen
and the people of the South have ever been found
ramong Its warmest supporter' and most vigilant con
servator.. South Caroina, among the faithful, will
also be found prm-eminently devoted to the preserva
tion of the Constitution.
Apropos to the above, Gen. GAat.INGTON, of New
berry, (in taking his leave of. the fraternity) thus cx
presses his idea of what an editor ought to be:.
ee Heehould feel that he is a sentinel on the watch
tower, called upon by the duties of his position, to give
the people warning of the approach of danger. Such
a vocation, when pursued with an honest devotton to
Tr'tth antd 'the best interests of the country, reflects
the highest honor upon him who follows it, and en
titles him so the highest praise. But the political
asountebianks orthes hieling demagogue, who would
*put in operation a stipendiary press, and prostitute
the honorable profession of editor fur the promotion of
men and not principles, deserves the contempt of all
honest men, and the infancy which he is sure, sooner
er later, to incur.

The President says, while amicable relations exist
with mIll nations, some -grave questions are pending in
regard to Central America. He says it was the un
doubted understanding of the United States that the
convention with Great Britain would seenre perma
nent peace and independence to those States, and no
dominion should hereafter he exercised by the United
States or Great Britain; but the lattere still. asserts
authority over the Mosquito coast,' and construes the
convention so as to maintain her present control. It
is impossible for the United Sates.toacquisse in this
construction. Although the United States and Great
Britain maintain conciliatory coerespondence . upon
thLi subject, the difficulty cannot long remsiin mide
termined without involving in ~serious.anger the
friendly relations which it Is the -interest as well as
the dIuty of both countries to cherish and pyeserve.
He entertains doubts as to the final termination.
He treats at length on the violation of our neutrali
ty laws, in recruiting the foreign -legion. He says
sonie officers implicated are of high official position,
and beyond legal jurisdiction in this country, and
entered the business with a full knowvge of our
laws and international policy. The subject is still
under discussion by the two Governments.
A misunderstanding also exists between the Hudson

by Denmark, for the reason that the proposition of

thus accruing to our commerce.

lHe speaks at great length on tihe constitutional rea
tions of slavery-says it has been a matter of painful
regret to see States conspicuous for their services in
founding the Republic, and equally sharing its ad
vantages, disregard their constitutional obligations,
although conscious of their inability to heal admitted
palpable social evils of their own, nn'l whtichi are
cotmpletely withtin their jurisdiction. They engage ins
the offensave and ho'peless undertaking of reforming
domestic institutions in other Sttates, wholly beyond
their control and athiority-while the people of the
Sutthern States confine mlheir attention to their own
afl'airs, not presuming officiously to inte-rmeddile with

after noticing the efforts making in Slississipii Loutis

EXTRACTS PEON THE LETR OF AN OCCA
Paars, Nov. 29th, 1855.
"I have much to say, but will just pause a momen1
to mention Mr. MAsoN. F- -'a letter was.very grat
ifying to him. I saw it In his face when he read it
especially the allusion to his health. He is isolated
here, and thankful for. any approbation. He took oc,
casion to pay me several compliments; promised tc
invite me to tea, and to introduce me to his family
and begged me to attend Mrs. MAsoN's receptions.
There it all ended-I have waited in vain for the
promised invitations to tea-they came not. The ex.
planation is, that Mr. Mason, one of the beat men it
the world, is at present a paralytic, whose memor3
(one ofthe first faculties that old age,yields to an in
curable disease) is impaired: He forgg me in five
minites and will probably tever recollect me again.
A word more about our legation: It Is current here

some months previously. invited his creditors to mee
him on a certain morning at twelve, at his chambers
They assembled, and lWd the pleasure of learning thal

work-wLich demonstrates from the records of the Ie
gation here the absurdity and inutility of foreign Min
isters. The last chapter will give a description of the
model of -a perfee , ' r.' The picture is drawr
from a Louisiana rought here some years ago,
who has acquired rench. language, and who is,
they say, indispensibe at the Legation; and whose
services are r.ot only demanded in Paris, but who has
also been sent for from Spain and Russia to install
our redoubtable diplomatists.
The other morning, after having my hair cut by the
Emperor's barber, I met my French Teach or, a Hun
garian, a Republican, a Refugee, and a professor it
one of the Colleges here. He informed me that N
Gabon advised me to go at once to Halningen, to se
the operation of pisci-culture. This advice I followed
and went to see M. Gube, at the College of France
who gave me a letter to M. Chabot, the Director o
the fish manufactory, established by the French Gov
ernment; and that evening, Monday 19th Oct., I
started on the Western Rail Roead. I slept that nighl
at Chalous, and the n'xt morning made the tour o
the immense Champagne cellars of M. Jacques & Son
These are the largest in the world, consisting of twent)
paralel passages, each nearly a quarter of a mile long
rssed by four others of the same length, besides v
number of shorter ones. They are fros - ten to forti
feet under ground (being cut under a bill) in the solik
rock, and their width is from ten to fifteen feet 01
more. Their height is from ten to twenty. Theil
whole length, not including a new series now in con
struction, is estimated at six miles. At present the]
contain 4.000,(.00 and upwards of bottles of the wini
of Champagne. These bottles are corked by machin
ery and the corks are said to cosi nearly $30,000 pei
annum. Champagne is a manufactured wine; I sau
them pour a tin cup full (about two large wine glasses
of burnt sugar and brandy into each bottle, and an
informed thatevery bottle passes two hundred timei
through the hands of the workmen before it is read]
for market. I met the agent at breakfast who gavi
me his prices-which are from 5 fr. to 5 fr. per bottle
the higher prices being asked for the vintages of 46 it
49-the lowest that of 52. Two years are necessarl
to complete the manufacture of ti-e wine, and he tolk
me that at five years it might be ,considered as full3
developed. It costs 5 sous per bottle to deliver it a
Iavre-I took a short tour through Chalons befor
proceeding on my journey. On entering lie loftq
massive stone arch, which forms the Southern gate o
the town, over which may be seen the towering steeples
of two christian Churches and the roof of the palaci
f the Bishop, I read this decree written in large char
acters on the gate : " Destitution is for bid to ente:
Channa"- Voila a text from which might be preach
ed a sermon more solemn, sotrow ful and true than an)
which the philanthropy and vivid imaginations ever
of Abolitionists have devised. At I p. m , I took

If you wish to give an idea of this country to any
body, you need only take a piece of paste-board anm
colour it green and reddish brown, to represent thu
plughetl land and the crops of wheat, and allow an3
child so arrange at pleasure on this paste-hoard the
contents of a box of toy houses and trees-and I an
sure you will have a correct nmodel of the provinces o
Champagne and Lorraine. Their trim poplars, ant
precise farm-steads ; their streams resembling bauly
constructed ditches ; their leaden sky and naked hilla
and plains seem rather to have been manufactured ii
some immense toy-shop than to he the face of nature
This continuouts nudity is to me sickening, and I carn
conceive of any thing which would produce a like
unpleasant sensation except the sight of a bald-haeadeu
wman. The produce of the country is gran of varn
ous sorts, including buck wheat and corn, thme lat ter o
a small yellow variety used only for .feeding poultr:
and at Strasburg for producing the " Pale's defoi
gras"-also beets in immense quantities, for makini
sugar and brandy. The whole country is sadly ii
want of ditches.
I reached Strasburg about midnight, and the nes
moring my first care wan to procure a French guide
(for the people here speak German for the most part
in order to enable me to despatch the Lions. Thea
conssted of the fortifications-a wall of stcne and earti
of 40 feet in height or more, with sluices by means
which the waters~of the river ll,whtich passes tharoug
the city, may be spread over the whole surroundini
country in a few minutes to so considerable a dept
as to render the approach of an enemy impossible
then the foundries for cannon where I saw a furnic
capable of holding 25,000 lbs. of melted brans, and I
workmen who are paid 4 fras. for 10 hours labor a da
and who make 25 cannon per month. The labor is
the most appalling nature. I saw one poor fellow wht
warn cutting the solid brass with a chisel and mall
ie was apprenticed to work for 20 years, as inde
were all thme rest ; for the government never change
its workmen here. After this apprentice-ship,
believe, the government takes care of them. Tis
not slavery thaough!
I was lastly conducted to the Great Cathedre
(which was commenced in the eleventh century) wit
its front of " woven stone," with its arched door-wa
on which are written with the chisel of the Sculptc
the whole historypof the Bible, and its spire 474 fee
in height, (the tallest in the world-higher even thta
the great pyramid.) Ih is still one of the wondersc
the world. But more wonderful than even the Cathe
dral itself and its statues (sculptured in a speciesc
red sand-stone, brought from the Vosges Mountali
and the expression of which excels anything I bav
seen in marble) is the clock which it contains. Thi
clock was constructed in 1325, but having ceased sine
1789 to work it was reconstructed with the moder
improvements in 1842. The frame is about 40 feeti
height. In the Astromical portion you see the planel
revolving in their exact period.; the eclipses of the su
and the moon and all the phases of the latter; th
equinoxes, &c.-all indicated at their exact epoch
with Mathematical precision. In the Ecclesiastics
division you have the Calendar of all thc :estivals
theChurch calculated ia perpeluo. Beside the face <
the clock stand two Genii, who strike the seconds
above and in the centre stands Death with his scythi
-he strikes thie hour. At each quarter of an hour
figure passes before him from left to right and disal
pears. The first quarter, this figure represents Infancl
it passes, and at the second quarter Youth appears o
the left of Death. Trhe third quarter, the place<
Youth is supplied by mature Manhood; at the las
Iquarter he tot, goes his way, and decrepid Old Ag
takes his post. Hligher up still stands the Savior.
On the summit is the Virgin, surrounded by thtre
K Iings, andl on the extreme right a lingo Cock. Whos
the clock strikes twelve, the disciples pass befor
Christ, and he raises his hands to bless them ; at thm
same time the three Kings bend themselves before thm
Virgin, and thes Cock flaps his wings and crows thricec
while a " carillon" set in motion by the machiners
plays several different melodies. Scnwrra.aus, thm
architect, was occupied five years on the Mathiemati
ca calculations, and the construction consumed si
a.. ut, enough of Strnshourg.
After dining on a "parecffocigras," which I don't
like (by the way, in Strasbourg a goose sells for 4 fre.,
while its liver always sold separately brings 5 rrs.,
more) I took my ticket for Basle, the end of my jour.
ney. By ten o'clock I found myself in bed in the
hotel of the three Kings, whose foundationR are wash
ed by the far famed Riine: The next morning I en
gaged a Voiture to carry me to litningen, about 5
miles distant. After sodie difficnhy in finding the
road, I reached the establishment, and gave my letter
to Dr. Chabot,a young Frenchman of the purest.French
type. He 'ofered me both his hands at once; hurried
me up-stairs to his room; iave me two glasses of dif
ferent kinds of Swiss liqqor to drink; told mc he was
going on a tour through witzerland, to inspect the
various operations then itaprogress on the lukes and
water coursiis, and insisteidn my accompanying him;
asked me my age; bope~tre should be friends ; pust
his purse at my disposal; told me he was engaged to
be married; (ai'se'efet) pronised to introduce me to his
betrothed, with whom'I whbld have mich pleasure,
as she spoke English; she lived among the mountains
of Switzerland, and -we would see her in our
voyage! lie went with me to Balse to get my earpet
bag, and advised me to take lodgings at hit boarding
house at St. Louis, a small village just on the confines
of Fraice and situated hilf way between the city of
Balse and the "Fish Factory."

perations of fish culture. They are simple enough.
I feel myself thoroughly and practically informed in

Mr. Allison said that there was no disposition on the
i part of the North to wage'waragainst the slave States,

The deceased was ..known aid love4 by a largi
ircle of friends in this District, to whom *she hal
rongly attached herself by lter many- modest ani
miable virtues. In the several relations which sh4
ustained during her short life, as daughter, pupil
ad wife, she'was an. example of what Is lovely h
oauth, and devoted and affectionate in woman.
She had been married less than two years whei
ier husband, then in the first flush of early manhood
as by death, taken from her. From a shock s4
evere as that which one of her affeesionate dispo

ent, it was to be expeeted that she would greatl;
uffer. But few of her most intimate friends wer
repared for that depth of tenderness . which. in it
truggles was destined to wear out the body an
iterly exhaust its vitality. Many, yoang and -vigo
ous ns sie, fall victims to disease, or are cut off b:
ad and sudden calamity. But few likeher diewit]
heir young henirts crushed by a weight of afflictioi
dhich nothing earthly can relieve.
Though surrounded by many dear friends, an
ling all of a mother's fondness for her infant child
et her heart had been too long buried in the grivi
f her husband to desire life. and nsa noble Chris
an woman she died, feeling with the Apostle, the
