Tue FRast Daove.-A small drove of smatl
hogs passed through here on Monday last. We
believe no sales were moad., in consequence of
the price asked, viz: 7j eent.. If that is to be
the ruling price for hogs, we're not in the mar.
ket, because we believe we can save money
by buying bacon and hams as we want them
next year. The reports that we now receive
from the packing establishments warrant us in
believing that, bacon and ham. will not command
over 12j cents next year, and we are not so flush
of money at present, as to pay in advance for a
-stock of, provisions which we can get fully as
cheap if not cheaper, by buying as we want

or 7 cents per lb., we don't see how they can

During the summer contracts were made at fig

THE.BLUE RIDGE RAILROAD.
IT il thought by some that the fate of this great un
dertaking is to be decided during the present seesion
ofour lJegilature; and the hue and cry in certain
quarters would cause a casual observer to conclude
that it is to be demolished at once 'without benefit of
clergy.' .In our own District an expression of opinion
has been given, inimical to the further prosecution of
the enterprise; and some have thoughtlessly concurred
in that opinion, as gospel, because it happens-to have
falleat from agentleman of known.financiering ability.
Unprepared (as we confesseourself tobe) For judging
in~lhpremises with .the shrewduaesser-'men'akllled-In
such operationr, we yet conceivet the' Blue Ridge
Ralroad to be a thing of sufficient magnitude to escape
instant destruction'at the least, frorn whatever quarter
the anathems of' condermnation may be hurled
Befure the Legislature of South Carolina shall de
termine to send it adrift as a monstrons absurdity,
there area some thingi thsat deserve to be well consid
ered and impartially weighed. It is a work that
promises great good, not only to Chareston but to our
whole State, and without which we may be utterly
deprivedlof all chance of successfeal competition for
the immense .trade of our Great liaterior, It is a
project that aims to secure to us the benefits of that
trade against alIkcontingencies, and whose advantages
cannot easily be over-calculated in view of thai rapid
strides of our country towards opulence and power.
its cost may be' heavy ; but it is to be judged of, pro.
perty, by the return it is to make not only to the pre
sent but to future venerations. It is to be considered
too, that our State heas already fairly committed ther
self as the leading spirit if not the prime mover of the
enterprize. She has in effect said to the world around
her, that the Blue Ridge Road is her own scheme ;
and her character is implicated In that her pledge has
virtually been passed to Georgia, Tennessee and
North Carolina, that it shall go on to completion. Not
only to States, but to corporatiogg and individuals,
ter guasi declaration has been given that this shall
be so. We do not say that these commnittals are of
that binadinag character which would not allow hter
to abjure the partnership at tier own luss. But they
are quite sufficient to make her Legislators pause be
fore they take such a step. The people, we maintain,
have given no expression of sentiment adverse to a
proper fostering of the work in question. Let not
then the bare fear of what they possibly many do,
deter atny menmber front a manly and independent
course in the matter. Let the subject be viewed by
the light of a wise forecast and not by'the imaginaary
fickerings of an anticipated public fury. We are
the tribunal, it is true, before whom an account of
our Representatives' stewardshtp must at all times be
faithfully given ; but nie look for a sterling indepen
dnce of thought and action jo characterize that
stewardship. Cringe to our possible displeasure in
advance, and you have lost already the highest re
quisite of good Legislators.
Before, then, ibis great enterprise is disowned and
forsaken, we warn gentlemen to canvass the whole
ground with a scrupulous regard to propriety as well
as expediency. Upon this very question may hang
the future well-being and prosperity of our State.
Although much that is forcible can be said against
involving ourselves further in debt, yet the array of
probable Advantages to accrue from this Railroad
may greatly overbalance all those objections. Twen
ty years hence, if thtis work be sufferedl to rot at this
stage of its progress, the charge of narrow ignorance
may be the lightest one that will be visited upon the
metn who stopped it. Twenty years hence, if this
same work be carried out prudently but energetically,
the Legislators who stood by and upheld it in its hour
of need may be classed among the greatest benefactors
of their State and Section. Without thereftre enter
ig into any discussion of the, real merits of the ques
tion, we caution those who are sitting upon it to be
ware lest they here make a decision that shall not
only bring discredit upon their sagacity but irretrieva
bly retard the onward and upward proggress of South
Carolina. It is a sort of custom with us (one too more
honored in the breach titan the observance) to plume
ourselves upon our enlightenment and public spirit.
Is it not well to reflect how poorly we shall merit these
self-commendations, when not only all our northern
Atlantic sisters, but Virginia, North Carolina, Geor
gia, and every other Southern State shall have out
stripped and distanced us in the great business of this
mighty utilitarian agei Stome of these have already
expended more than twice the estimated cost of our
Blue Ridge Road, to attain the precise facilities we
are in quest of; and yet there is no such word as
"fail" to be heard in their councils. Are we less
bold, less able, less sagacious, less determined than
theyi Having ventured a million or two of dollars

feared. to save ourselves in any way. "But," say i
the Aritators, " we must have dinanion. Tt Is our only ,
correct policy. Nor should we cease our crying aloud i
until it comes." What ! seek disunion now, when 4
the great body of the Southern people stand exultant i
over a triumph which they regard as synnnymous I
with a triumph of the Constitution ? notw, when we 1
present a united front against the divided and dissol. 1
ving factions of the other great section of the Confed
eracy I noe, when there is no Issue existant, or likely
soon to arise, upon whieb we could even raise a
decent neighborhood stampedet Is there not rashness
In the very idea ?
" Still," repeat the Agitators, " we must agitate for
isuninn in fituro. for disunion four years hence.'
(Or, they might add, at some other and more suitable
time.) "We must give no sleep to our eyes nor slum
her to our eye-lida until we have attained our great
end. It may not he next year-it may not even he at
the expiration of Mr. BucHANAN's term. But it must
come, or we are lost, lost, lost."-Lost! with a great
Captain leading on a triumphant majority to further
and more glorious successes! Lost, with the munitions
of war and provisions for the-troops at our command!
Lost, within a mighty fortress manned at all points by
the brave and true, and upon which the light of
Heaven rests with the peaceful assurance of Victory!
No, no, no! Cheer up, faint hearts! We have a coun
try yet, a religion and a God. To have coveted
disunion, when overt acts of oppression were crushing
your spirit into the dust and when the elements of
empire seemed in league to ensure your degradation
was both virtuous and brave; and History will award
to youfor that, the palm of heroic patriotis. But to
strike for it at a moment like the present, when all
things are conspiring to reform the government and
give us complete justice, would be scarcely less sense
less than graceless.
" But after all," cry out the Agitators, " it is to
Disunion alone that we can look for complete securi
ty ; and it would be a sinful neglect in us to hold our
peace whiile that consummation is yet unachieved. We
can only accomplish it by unceasing agitation ; and
therefore we must and will agitate."-Only accom
plish it by unceasing agitation ! Remember the fate
of one who cried " wolf," " wolf," until to his sorrow
none would believe him when he cried. There is
neither policy nor common sense in wearing out the
sensibilities of men before the time for actIon arrives.
Admisedly, that time (for us) is now pnstponed for
four years. W hy agitate at present for- a dissolution of
the Union, when a'noble couirse of conduct on the part
f tihe a dministration and the democracy may stultify
your croakings and falsify your pred ictions before the
South ! May you not thtus lose the confidence of your
people, bring discredit upon your cause arnd (what is
still worse) render any future real cries of alarm un
availing!te How much better, to buckle on our armor
for a fight under the Constitution and for the Constite
ion ! Bow tmuch wiser, to improve the day, in the
Union, for the perfect equality of cur section ! How
much more politic, to reserve our fire and enthusiasm,
in the cause of a Southern republic, for an opportunity
that may lend to that end the coloring at ounce of a
strong necessity and a high probability! Can we
succeed in it otherwise I Those who tell Ud that we

TIIE~ PLAY OF LAST WEEK.

by our Theepians, on Friday evenitng last, in a man
a r highly creditable to the company. 'rThe " DUKE
AaN'zA" and " JUr~tAxA" were as fine representa
tions as the regular boards are accustutied to afford ;
the former combmining the grace and dignity of a real
DUKE, while the latter looked and acted the accom
plished beauty and the remodelledt wife in a style thiat
brought down the involuntary plaudits of a delighted
audience. " V'ot-Axve" too was given in a vein of
genius seldom equaled upon any stage; while
" Roz.Anoo" and "COUNT.MoNTALBAN" were all that
a fastidious audience could desire. " B.it~ta zA a"
needs no praise of ours; as the universal judgment of
the evening was, that thme old man's part was never
better given. " ZamoRA," " JACQUEZ," and time
other parts, were all creditably represented. And,
upon the whole, a better entertaintuent thas not been
gotten up this season. An accidental circumstance
(not in the programme) rather marred the effect of the
play ; but when the public is assured that it was
deeply regretted by the company, and that pains iwill
be taken that nothing of the kind shall ever again
occur, it will of course be furgiven and forgotten
except by the prejudiced and unkind.

CAPT. TRADEWELL's ADDRESS.
The Charleston Mercury thus notiees the late ad
drm of this talented Carolinian before-the Academy
The Annual Address before these Societies was de
livered last evening, at Hibernian Hall, by Jlas. D.
Tradewell, Esq., of Columbia. The speaker was
greeted by a crowded auditory, and most ably and
faithfully did he acquit himself in the discharge of
the high and responsible duties of the occasion. The
subject of the Address was, " The Study of the Fed
eral Constitution, as the only safeguard of our Repub
lian Institutions." He spoke of our present happy
and prosperous form of Government, as the creatore
of thme Constituion, receiving its life and power, and
influences for good, from the operation and control of
that instrument. He attributed many of the evilsi1
which have befallen our Government, and many of the
dangers which now threaten it with subversion and
overthrow, to an indifferent study and superficial
knowledge of the nature and objects of the Federal
Constitution. His reasoning was cogent, and his ar
guments strong and conclusive ; and the frequent ap
plause with whiqh he was greeted, testified the satls
faction and assent of the targe and appreciative audi
ence. His Atddress occupied an hour and a half, in
which he fulfilled the expectations of his friends, and
held the interest and attention of the audience to the

On Monday (in the Sonate) little more was
ione than receiving, and hearing read, the brief
)ut exel-Ilent Message of Gov. ADAMS, of which
wo thousand copies wore ordered to be printed.
[n the House (on the same day) the Message was
slso the principal feature of interest. Me'nbers
gave notice of various bills to be Introduced on
succeeding days; but as few of these are likely to
become Act-ualities, I will not bother you with
their mention here. The Report of the Comptrol
ler General was this day received and referred
se usual. Among the notices of bills, there was
ne providing for an additional Law Judge; also,
tnother for thme establishment of a separate Court
of A ppeamls, a proposition which haui many friends.
On Tuesday, the President .of the Senate an
nouned the Standing Committees of that body;
and afterwards, prescntments of grand juries, re
ports of Free School Comamissioners, notices of
new Bills &e., &e., went on after the customary
hum-drum manner.. So ql.of theo Governor's
Message as related to the Slave Trade was referred
to a special Committee, consisting of Messrs. MA
sjesg, CsNUT and TowMshD.--13 the House,
the Speaker alro named the standing Committees.
Your members wero assigned places as follows :
Mr. Z. W. CAnwIL, to the Committee on Privile
ges and Elections, and tho Cotmmittee on Acts;
Mr. Roaa MEaTia, to thtat on Roa
Bridges and Ferries ;Mr. Wa. Gaso, to Internal
Improvmenats and to District Officers and Ollices;
Mr. J. BLACewELL, to Public Buildings and to
Veanctt Oficees ;Mr. M. C. M. UIAxxono, to Fed
eral Re~lations and to the Millitary ;and Mr. ASSAM
.IoNEs', to Agriculture and to Colored Population.
Matters of course, anmd void of interest, occupied
tihe htour after thme announcement of the Committees.
Anad then came up thme Slave Trade part of the

In the House. Proceedings not very interesting.
tir. Mzaximosa gave notice of a Bill to extend the
mystem of public education in South Carolinat. His

a he has assiduously studied the question for a

In the Senate. Several Bills were read this

very sensibly-conceived one, introduced by Mr.

The election for Treasurer of the Upper Division
mis-carried ,as did also that for Equity Commissioner
No news of importance outside the Legislature
The city is pretty well supplied with visitors and
the Hotel-keepers are renping their usual golden
harvest. Old Hun's in the place after all; although
it cannot be said that the other houses are not capi
tal. The State Bible Society has been in session
during the week, and the Temperance Convention
likewise. The Law and Equity Courts of Appeals
have their usual attractions and terrors, and various
Knights of the Green Bag an in attendance, hoping
to reverse their bad luck upon the Circuit. Certain
trembling applicants ror forensic privileges nre here
also, smelling out the questions they are to be asked
on examination-day. Thus far, we have had the
old style of Legislative weather, wet, heavy and
utterly unpropitious to the display of hoops and
flounces. It promises now to brighten up, and, the
lovely ones anticipate a fair showing next week.
Of the present Legislature, I cannot yet speak
justly. Mr. YEADON, of the Courier, promises to
say something for his fame, one way or the other:
and several younger members evince an ambition
" to do or die ;" but, as yet, nothing very great has
appeared above the horizon. Our elegant Speaker
SimoNs presides with.his usual grace and dignity ;
and the President of the Senate is not far behind
him in the " suaviter in mode." The other offi
cials, especially SLo.rN of the House, retain their
usual excellence and popularity. Next week I hope
to give you a more pleasant column. Till then
adieu. BR EVITAS.

but postively injurious. Extra copies of the paper
