VERY DESTRUTIVE 1RESR1TS!
Loss $2,000,000 !!
A dispatch from Albany, N. Y. dated Nov. 9,
A tretpendous flood occurred here last night
in consequence of the recent thaw, causing an
immense amount of damage to property. The
loss is estimated at $2,000,000.
The city during the night has been the scene
of the utmost confusion, owing to the combined
evils of fire and flood, a fire having broken out
whilst the flood was 4t its height.
Laborers have been working all night in re
moving goods from the first floor to the second
floors ot the stores in the lower part of the city,
where it was thought they would be safe, but,
at 11 o'clock the water began rising rapidly,
and the workmen had to desist and run for
The water continued rising till four o'clock
this morning, when it reached a point three feet
.higher than ever before known, flooding the
whole lower portion of the city as high up as
Green street. The lower parts of Herkimer
and Hudson (parallel)streets are submerged to
the first story and Broadway is flooded from
the Exchange to the Delaven Hosse. The
stores and cellars on the west ide are filled
with water, and all the streets between Broadway
and the river are navigable by boats. A large
number of cattle have been drowned.
At three o'clock the fire bells wore sounded
in different parts of the city, adding to the ter
ror of the scene. Warren & Son's building on
Broadway, and Messrs. Gilson & Dalton's plhm
ing mills, and Barrett's warehouse on the pier
all being in flames at the same time, owing to
the slaclting of a large quantity of litme. Ow
ing to the height of the water, it was impossi
ble to get the engines to the tire, and therefore
the firemen proceeded in bouts with buc-kets,
and succeeded in cunfining the flames to the
buildings in which the fire originated. T1he
glare of the conflagration upon the rushing wa
ters of the river and the devastating flood in
the city rendered the scene one not soon to be

A MURDER.-An.z affray occured on the 2f5th
ultimo, between two negroes belonging to Robert
Jackson, of the upper part of this district, atnd
another belonging to a Mr. Wilson, who resides
in Polk county, Northi Carolina, which resulted
finally in the'death of the latter. The circum
standes, as near as we can learni, were as fol
lows: There were a nunmber of negroes collected
together in a negro hiotuse on Mr. Jaekson's plan-I
tation and it seems that the negroes who anter
wards got into the affray, were playing cards and
betting. Thle, tnegro of Mr. WilIsotn being more
lucky thant the other two, won all of their money.
Thien ensued a quarrel. Stones were thrown,
and finally an axe was aimed by one of Mr.
Jackson's negroes at the negro be-longing to Mr.
Wilson, which produced the fatal wound. Thu
negro was takeni to his master's plantation ini
North Catrolina and survived several days.
He was buried without a coroner's inquest be
ing held over tho dead body, but was anterwards
disinterred by the Coroner of Polk county, in- I
qunest held, and verdict found according to the
above facts.-Sxaraburg Expyress.

past two o'clock, in charge of the Sub-Com
mittee of Edgefield District, who had been depu.
Led to proceed to Washington, and conduct the
remains to Edgefield Court House. At the
Georgia depot, they were met by a Committee
of the City Council, and citizens of Augusta,
and convejed to the Council Chamber, in the
City Hall, which was appropriately draped in
mourning-for the occasion. The box enclosing
the metalic case in which the body was conffin
d was here removed, and the remains placed
in the centre of the Chamber.
Dulring the hour they lay in state, the Cham
ber was visited by hundreds of our citizens,
anxious to testify, even by this unsatisfactory
demonstration, their respect for the memory of
the lamented dead. At half-past four o'clock
the remains were removed, and placed in a
earse, drawn by four horses, which had been
obtained from Charleston to convey them from
Lhis city to Edgefield Court House. The pro
ession was then formed under the direction of
Col. J. B. Campbell, of the Augusta volunteer
Battalion, and preceded by a band of music,
playing un appropriate dirge, escorted the re
mains through the principal streets of the city
to Hamburg. In this long funeral cortege were
the Clinch Rifles, Ogluthorpe Infantry, Irish
Volunteers, Washington Artillery, Richmond
Hussars, the Fire Comnpany of the town of
Hamburg, the Fire Companies of this city and
the llook and Ladder Company, acting as the
escort, wvhilst following the hearse, were the
members of the Committee of Augusta and
Edgefield District, in carriaiges, the Professors
and Students of the Medical College, and a
large number of citizens. The streets through

AN AFFECTING SCENE.-A Washington cor
respondent of the Montgomeary, (Ala.) Adrerti
ter anid State Gazette, describes a truly touching
ene that occtured over the dead body oif the
amented Brooks. hIndescribably painful must
'iuve be-en the death of one so loved to thme veii.
rable and devoted Judge Butler. No wonder
hat lie wvept like a child, for within the wide
ange and circle of Mr. Brooks' acquaintances
aone '- know but to love him, none named him
mut to praise."
No one having even the comimon sensibilities
if our nature, can read whiat follows unmoved:
About ten minutes after his death, the vene-rn
ale old Senator, whose locks are now white
with the frosts of agc, came into the room, and
pon seeing him cold in the embrace of death,
Lhe himself upon his.bottom .izi went a. if
his heartr would burt from its bound- Judge
Butler has lavished the attention and affection
of many years upon Mr. Brooks, and he seemed
to.be the important object of his solicitude and
existence, and while the death-sweat still stood
upon the brow of the immortal sleeper, the old
man called to the fleeing spirit in tones of sor
row, that moved the pitying hearts- of those who
stood round to tears--" My. boy, my boy, my
boy !" and such a scene of mourning and sor.
row, as was witnessed there, cannot be compre
hefided, 'niich less repeated here.

A desperate rencuntre occurred near the house of
r. ALFRED HATCnER in this District wigiin the

to one of the parties. The combatants were BENJA

but not seriously. OVERSTREET was reported yester

The subscribers turned over to us by C. W. STY.Es,
Esq.,-late of the Edgefield Infonner-are reminded
that their subscriptions upon that score are now expir

should notify us at once. We will be happy to num
her them among our readers, and shall be pleased to
hear from all of them to that efyect.
The reader will acquit us of egotistm in the use of
this caption, when he considers what follows.
Kind friends (gentlemen of prominence and infin
encehavc been pleased to place unr natme before the
public as a candidate for a seat in Congress. Others,
some of greatei' merit than we, and all of equal claims
-have also been nommnated by frietids of high char
acter and position in our district, Of course, the pros
pet is one of distraction and discord among the peo
pe of Edgefield. Several ciriz-ens of intelligence and
probity have spoken to us, in terms Qf deep regret, of
the condition of things which, has here so stiddenly
sprung up. We have felt the force of their opinion
and now act accordingly.
With the most heart-felt thtinks to otur friends in
Edgefield and elsewhere, we mtst decline a pilace in
the Congressional race now about to occur. If there
is any one thing in political life we would avoid more
than an other, ii is the being in any wise a piarty to
local and personal dissen~ions in th.e matter of our Fed
eral representation. 'Our view is (especially now,
with the sad calamity before us which necessitates a
new election,) to let it pass ifl' quietly and amicably.
If either of the two dlistinguished gentlemen (Cot.
PIUenss or Goy. IIA~missa,) who have heetn nomi
nated for th~e post in qutestion, will accept, we hold it
to be th~e duty of their juniors to retire front all oppo
sition to him. If not, there may (and probably will)
ense a scramble. We do nut wish to be a partici
pant in, or an accessory to, any such contest.
We trust our friends will enctur with us it, this ap
ptreciation of matters as they stand. Canidly, we
prefer the po..ition of an independlent South Carolina
Editor to a place in Congress uder the circumustances.
Our friends will jnstify us in saying that we have
nt had the remotest instrumentality in the netntion of
our namte in this connection.
The laree Barn of Hon. F. W. P'icEcxss, two miles
fron this place on the Newberry road, was conisumned
by fire on Friday eveing last, involving a very conu
siderable loss to thme owner. The building was 90
feet in length by 48 in bre-adtht, tawo stories high, with
Granary, Corn-shellers, Thrasher, Fan, Straw-entters
&c., &c., complete. In the ha-emeiit were some 25
or 30 mules and several blooded mares. Two of the
mares and five of the mules were hturnt to death.
Tweity bne of the munles were saved with compara
tively little injury. A bout 2700 bushels of corn, be
sides a very large quantity of fodder, oats, wheat and
peas, were lost. Out of a bulk of about 3000 hushels
of corn in the shuck, some seven htundred bushels
were saved by hauling waiter and throwing it up' ii
the buriiing mass'. A long atnd commodious Cow
hioue adjoiniug was als.o burnt, and also a shuck
barn. The total loss is estimated at $5,000, and may
perhaps prove to liavs been even more. Col. P. states
to us that lie has no doubt it was the work of an in
cendiary. Ie hasi grounds for the belief; and1 it
would be well for every one to keep on the loo~k-out
against a like misfortune. It is hoped the perpetra
tor may yet be exposed and pttnished as he deserves.

however, upon being informed that the General

ro THE CITIZENS OF THE 4TH CONGRESSIONAL
My nane was on the 4th inst., announced as a
:andidate for Congress. It was desirable that any
such announcement should have been deferred till
he remains of our late lamented Representative
4ad been deposited in their final resting place. It
xvas made by friends, upon the information, that
mother name would also be announced the same
lay, and with instructions front one of those
friends, that if no other candidate should be an
ounced, my name should be withheld. Through
ome misapprehension, it appeared and could not
ivell be withdrawn unless I had decided at on.ce
ot to be a candidate.
It is with no little diflidence, that I become a can
idate for a place which has been tilled by one who,
beyond doubt, struck the best Llows that have been
struck for Southern Rights. But I do not feel at lib
erty to decline a canvass which friends-perhaps too
partial-think I should undertake.

DEAR -:-I will not attempt to tell you how
many times I have commenced to write to you and
been interrupted. At last I had fixed upon Tr:este
as the spot from which you should receive my long
elayed reply to your letter.
The hardships which I have encountered since I
left Munich to my arrival on the shores of the
A dilatic surpass description. We started from that
ity, (a Peruvian and myself,) in ant uncommonly
heavy post wagon (on runners, for the whole coun
try was covered for a couple of feet with snow.)
The pace or this was the slowest, some three miles
an hour or less, and at every aelay we stopped
moore than half an hour. Nothing in Germany
omes up to time. Nothing goes fast. Having in
vented the clock, this people seem to consider it
their privilege to sit smoking and drinking, and
watch the hands go round. They are not lazy.
There is always motion, but so dragging. so slow.
Perfect rest would be preferable. After ten hours
we found the snow was mehing, and then came
thirty-nine long hours of cold and damp discomfort,
for we were seatel so that we could not stretch our
limbs-eur knees wedged against the board in front,
our heads almost touching the top, and no earthly
chance for a change of position. Nighat and day
over that waste of melting snow and under a grey
leden sky we dragged oan. At least wve were in
formed by jolting over the large rounmd stones thaat
we were apparoaching Viennat. Arrived, we with
difficulty pulled our stiffe~ned1 limbs out of the nar
row box and putting our efifets on a wheel barrow,
made the best of our way to a hotel.
What shall I say to you of Vienna, or of Austria.
Imagine a Chaurcha with a baa rack on one side anad

and a bureau or police ;at every door a solalier with

will find a file of the military drawan up, thecir bayo

TRUE, "GONE BEFORE."
Close the leaden eyelids softly,
On the death-dimmed, darkened eyes;
Press the folded hands all meekly
On the heart that ne'er shall rise
In wild throbbings swiftly, proudly,
In its conscious strength and might
God bath called him, and the glory,
Of his life-star's set in night!
Yes, the star that shone so brightly,
With the halo-light of fame,
Hanging, trembling o'er his pathway,
Gilding o'er his much loved name!
Iath set for aye, are yet an earth-stain,
Quenched aught of its radiant glow,
While its shining was the brightest,
On life's billows, onward flow!
God forgive us for repining,
At His sadly strange decrees;
Dashing from his lips the life-cup,
Ere lie tasted its deep lees I
Yet 'twas best-perchance the roses,
Wreathed around that cup's bright brim,
Would have withered in their blooming,
With Time's blighting soon grown dini!
Yet our tears are falling sadly,
For our champion smitten down,
With fame's flush still on his forehead;
God hath called his spirit homc!
Let the earth fall softly, lightly,
On the heart so strong and brave,
A nation's tears the turf shall moisten,
A nation's tribute to his grave!

THE LAST CHAPTER.
On Friday last the remains of Hon. PaRsToN S.
Baooxs reached Augusta in charge of Messrs. FRA

field; Messrs SuSna, PaA-Tr and McLzxoaE of New.
berry; Messrs KtRKwooD and LowNDE5 of Charles
ton; and Mr. GiaRs and a College Committee from
Columbia. The coffin was taken in hand at the depot
by the Mayor and Aldermen of Augusta and quietly
conveyed in the City hearse to the City Hall, where
it-was placed in state in the centre of the large and
handsojne Council Chamber.'Hundreds were there
in mournful silence, to look upon the scene. Scarcely
a word was audible for minutes at a time, as the im
mense crowd came and went in orderly succession.
The feeling was evidently deep and unaffected; and
will long be adverted to by many citizens oif South
Carolina then present, as sumanifestation at once
grateful to us and honorable to Georgians.
At a quarter past 4 o'clock P. M., it was announced
that the procession was formed without, and ready to
accompany the corpse to the town of Hamhurg on the
South Carolina side. The coffin was again taken in
hand by the Augusta members of Council and carried
to the street, where it was placed in a large and ele
gant hearse drawn by four black horses, which had
been procured for the occasion through the Mayor of
Charleston. The procession consisted of a troup of
Cavalry, four uniformed companies of infantry, along
train of carriages and a number of citizens on foot
the whole preceded by a band of music with muffled
drums. The length of the .column could not have
been leA than a half-mile. As it passed through
Broad Street, almost every piazza, balcony and win
dow were crowded with ladies, eager to witness this
sad tribute to the gallant deceased. Many of the
prominent business houses were closed ; And the
whole occasion was, every way, one to be long re
membered. We cannot avoid repeating, that the man.
ner in which our Augusta frends have acted in this
matter has drawn many a heart towards them, and
has gone far to make us feel more warmly alive to the
fact, that Georgia and Carolina are indeed sisters,
bound together by ties of feeling as well as of interest.
At a little before dark the procession halted in front
of the American Hotel, Hamburg; when the coffin
was taken from the Hearse by the officers of the
Volunteer Companies,and deposited in the Hotel par
lor, which had been appropriately hung wtith black
The escort from Augusta then returned to that city;
And the remains of our lamented representative were
in the keeping of his constituents and friends. A
guard of Honor kept watch during the night.
Early in the morning, the entrances and rooms of
the Hotel began to fill with anxious cit:zens, who
came to drop'a tear upon the cold, polished lid, that
concealed the face and form they had so lately admi
red in life. A younger brother of the deceased, ob
serving the kindness of this demonstration, requested
three particular friends to examine the face of the
corpse and, if proper, to exhibit it through the glass
plate underneath the outer case. It was found to pre
sent still a most natural appearance, and every one,
old and young, male and female, had the opportunity
of looking hurriedly upon the pallid but still regular
features of PRFsToN S. BaooKs.
We must not omit to mention here, the readiness
and zeal evinced by the people of Hamburg on this
occasion. The town authorities had every necessary
arrangement made, and the citizens generally entered
into the manifestations of respect with much cor
At 9 o'clock, A. 1)., (Saturday) the coffin was con
veyed by the Hamburg Committee to the Hearse. It
was escorted out of the corp'rate limits by a large
number of citizens on foot, under the command of
Col. STUART HARtRISON, one uf the Marshals of the
preceding day. Upon the hill above the town this
escort opened ranks, facing inwards; And the Hearse,
flanked by the Field Oflicers of thieth Regiment, and
fllowed by a number of carriatges conveying the va
rious committees, passed through on its way to Edge
fiehl Village where the interment was to take place.
At half past 3 o'clock P. M., the cortege, now vcry
largely increased biy the falling into line of many car
riages on the route, approached Edgefleid. The ap
proach was announced by a signal gun fired in the
outskirts of the Village. A few miles out, the head of
the procession was met by the Edgefleld Hnssars,
(Capt. GRIFFIN,) who then conducted the advance.
Within sight of the tosvjg long array of citizens
was marshalled on either ideifi the road, who were
at once placed in line immediately in front of the
Corpse, the v. hole under the guidatice of Maj. S.
S. To3Iratus, ass-istedl by Lieutenants ADAMS and
PENN. And thus the entire proce~sion entered the
village square. We liad not, until then, fornmed a cor
reet idea of the numbers in attendance. rThe large
area was literally filled with men, women atnd chii
dren. The body was at once tuken intoi one of the
smaller apariments of the Court H~ouse, that the family
of the deceased might in private take their melancholy
leave of it. It was then placed upon the table of the
Court Room ; and thousands caine to look for a mo
ment upon the strong man stricken down by the hatnd
~f death in the mid career oif hiis earthly exertions.
Not the least affecting part of this scene, was the num
ber of servants who camne crowding in, by permission,
to see the face of the dead once more before it went
down into the grave; among them, a weeping old
woman whio had nursed the deceased in his childhood.
At letig' h, the privilege of looking an adieu having
been acco~rded to all, the remains were again placed
in the Hearsc, th~e procession again formed, and the
saddenedi assembtlage were soon mc: once more around
an ope-n grave In the Village Church-yard. On one
side of it sleeps the dust of the father oif him who
now goes to make one more among the pale nations

briefly tells the enid of an infant udaughter, gone before
