Go forth! like the dawning of day:
May the plnnoe on thy casquobe the star of the
A ud thy brand be the Bush of the fray!
I love thee, yet ne'er be it said
That love did thy spirit restrain;
I had rather behold thee a hero, and dead,
Than a coward in lire to remain.

With glory return or return not ta Inc

For eneh crimson gash like a ruby appeats
On the rront if it be but disp!ay'd.

One Pear on thy back would awaken despair,

With glory return, and be welcome to me.

MR. GREGG AND IKALMIA.
We owe an apology to Mr. W. GREGG for several
blunders, in his letter to the people of Edgefield,
made by us thro' inadvertence. It is rather late now
to cortect them. Stll we do so: In line 58 it should
have been, " when the day of payment comes-in
lIne 70 " ten thousand"-in line 89, people in place of
deodle--in line 95," tWenty miles auay from a railroad
in the interior"-in line 134, "from the seabord to
eecry important section."
By the way. in regard to what we said of NALMIA
lately, see our outside for a fuller article upon the
ubject, from the Charleston Courier.
COME AND SETTLE--EASY.
Many good friends, yes very many, are owing us
each the little matter of $2. All those littles put to
gether might amcount up (who knows but we 1) to
something con-sid-er-a-ble. Now come, aye come
and bless the printer with his dues. It will only cost
each of you a very small amount of trouble and will
smye us much botherment. Come and settle-easy ;
without fuss and feathers, without halting and hob.

Father Ritchie)-W E shA t. !
A GENEROUS PROFFER.
The Edgefleld Brass Band instruct us to offer their
services to the General Committee of the Baooxs
Dinner for the occasion of October 3rd. Their usual
price for an exeursion of the sort is from $30 to $50,
according to distance and trouhle. But en considera
tion of the high esteem they place upon the gallantry
of their Congressional Representative, they unani.
mously and heartily agree to play for his dinnergratis.
All they ask is to be quartered in tolerable comfort
the night previous somewhere in the neighborhood.
It affords us pleasure to testify here to the excellence
of our young band, and to suggest to the Committee
the propriety of making arrangements for their a
comodation. They desire to he notified if their ser
vices will be acceptable. This can be done through
But let not the:r offer preclude the attendance of
more bands. The Edgefield boys would be glad to
meet others there in tie spirit of fraternal rivalry.
LetiAbbeville send her bond, and Newberry hers.and
Lexington and Laurens theirs. Tle more the merrier.
Let martial strains respond to martial strains over the
whole ground, until every heart shall throb faster and
every pulse beat higher.
THE FALL TRADE.
We must drop a word of kind advice to all our old
advertising friends, whether at this plece, at Ham
burg, at Augusta, or elsen' here. The Fall Trads is
about opening and you all wish to do a fine business.
To effect this in as full a measure as you deserve, you
must advertise. The facts of the age all show that to
secure success, merchants and other dealers must ad.
tertise. Now, we are the Advertiser. Hear ye that
and act accordingly. But there is always danger in
delay. Shakespeare himself instructs the world thnt
what-ver ought to be done, "'tis well 'twere done
quickly." Mind you, October is~at heand. Every one
is beginning to cast about as to heow, where anti with
whom he orslee will du his or her fall trading. Make
your showings, gentlemen, as soon as possible. While
it will of course result in helping u' a lit tle, it will
surely redound to your beteest a thousand fold. We
write thce words of common sense and reason. Mlark
them and ponder them well.

also entable us to fo.rme some better idea of the real loss

The Doe West Telescope excepts to our speaking of
Due West College as a School or an Academy. We
assure our brotheer that we designced nothing super
cillious or in the least degree disrespectful by the ap

upon the Southe Carolina College, there was neot a
spark of hostility felt towards any other Institution of
learig in the State. For the College at Due West
Corner we have long had a high degree of respect.
We have known its character for excellence from
various sources; aced we trust its sun will never set.
Still, this does not interfere with our argument for

the heads and souls (and particularly the souls) of his
ten thousand readers. There is nothing in his arm
chair gatherings that makes them seem like great cold
meetings or auditors compelled by mere forms of pro
priety to give some veteran of belles-letters an atten

that he is ' seated in this chair' ar.d old Knick ' in

of dried sticks and the singing of a fay-kettle on t'e

have a ' swig o' suthin' (from China only, of course)

We have been drawn unwittingly into this brief
panegyric upon one of the first gentlemen of the craft.
All we designed, upon sitting down, was to give an
extract or two from the September number of the
Knickerbocker. But our pen ran off into a preface,
and, seeing that it was inditing ' the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth,' we followed on be
hind like an " old dog Tray ever faithful."
And now fur a glance at ' the table' for September.
But before we begin, there are some Literary Criti
cisms preceding it, to one.of which we must barely al
lude. It is the notice of IleNaT CocKBUaN's book
on "Scotch Society in the Olden Time." Frum the
choice sitracts presented by the critic, we can but
judge it to be one of the most interesting publications
of the day. ' Until we had completed its perusal,"
remarks the Knickerbocker, "we took it to bed with us
every nighi ; and it requires a very entertaining book
to tempt its to ruminate bedward with a volume in our
hand."-(Will Mr. RAMSAY of the Post Office be good
enough to send on fo'r a few copies of this work?)
So we come to the table. Sit up:
We are first presented with a letter from Paris upon
" Eating an Ear," going to show how those Parisians
make delicacies out of anything and every thing Prov
ideice is pleased to place before them. The editor in
his introductory observations says:
The triumph of the French cuisine htere r-corded,
remtnds us of a remark made by a Frenmchmn to 3Ir.
N. II. Carter, fortmerly editor of the old "Netw York

abh'-sm, of our early Amnerictan travellers in Europe:
"' You have grand countree in Amerique: ath, oui

lic chef de cuisine was right. The tender epidermis
of a fresh-killed doe has its uses as a component oif,
nay as a ' stock' for, soup, which only a French cook
thoroughly understands. Yet it is not, in its first
stage, "zec buckskinpantaloni !" But hear our new
