ANDREW PICEENS BUTLER.
"Know ye not, that there is a Prince and a
great man fallen this day in Israel ?" was the
earnest, lamenting inquiry of King David, as he
mourned the untimely death of Abner.
May we not indulge in a similar inquiry of
griet as we notice the announcement, that An
drew Pickens Butler died, at the residence of his
nephew, near Edgefield Court House, on Monday
evening 25th of May last.
He is the last of the fine family of Gen. Wil
liatim and Mrs. Behethlen Butler. Their eight
children who grew tip to maturity-James,
George, William, Frank, Pickens, Pierce, Emily
and Leontine, are all gone. They, with their
parents, are in their Heavenly Father's House!
The venerable Mother, saw all her childrin, save
.1 udge Butler, go to the tomb; by a few years
she preceded him.
Jtudge Butler must have been in his 62d year.
He graduated at the South Carolina College in
1817. His graduating speech was remarkable
tbr its sound sense, and the forcible language in
which it was expressed. He was admitted to the
Bar, as we believe, in 1819. He first settled in
Columbia, but after the death of his gallant
brother, Maj. George Butler, he located himselt
at Edgefieldl. His practice was principally at
Edgetield, Barnwell, Orangeburg, Lexington and
As a lawyer, he was remarkable for his clear
perception 'of the strong points of his cases, and
for his forcible presentation of the same. He
came into the Legislature in 1824. He was one
of the aids of Gov. Manning from 1824, to De
cember 182ti,-hence he had the title of Col.
Blutler. He wits onte of the Governor's Aids,
who, with him, received and attended Gen. La
fayvette on his visit to Sorith Carolina, ini March
Ili ceember 1727, and January 1828. he was
one of the committee who prepared articles of
impeaichmnent against Judge Jamtes, for drunken
niess, and after they were voted by the House,
carried themn tup to, and prosecuted them before
the Senate. His heart bled for the old Soldier,
and Judge, whotm, it was his duty to prosecute
and that of the Senate, to remove. As soon as
the judgment of removal was pronounced in the
Seniate Chamber, in Jauary 1828, and the
House of Representatives retturned to their own
Chamber, Jttdge Butler moved to present to the
removed Judge, the salary for 1828, $3,500.
This was tunanimotus!y agreed to. He was in
the House of Representatives, or in the Senate,
until December 1833i. He married first, Susan
Antn Simkins, the secottd dattghter of Col. El
tdred Sitmkitis, of Edgefield. In a few months,
he followed her to the grav-e. He was married
a second time, to Miss HarrietiHayne, the daugh
ter of Williatm Edward Haytte, Esq., of Charles
ton. Shortly after the birth of their only child,
(.\rs. Hay~good, of Barnwell,) he was again called
on to tmourn that greatest of all calamities, to a1
husband, thte dleath of htis youg and lovely wife.
Thence forward, h'e lived a widower; his alaugh
ter, dttritng intfatiey, had very ntuch the care ol
his never enought admired sister, Mrs. Thompson,
His mother, for many years, cheered his solitary
life, by occupying his hiouse, arnd taking charge
of his daughter.
In D~ecetmber 1833, Jttdge Butler was elected
to and took a place Ott the Law Bench of So. Ca.
in the lalce of Jtudge Martin, who had died the

An incident, connected with the commence
mnent of his Senatoril lire, may here be appropri
ately mtentioned. On his passage from Charles
ton to Wilnmington, on his first trip to Washing
totn, the boat was overtaken by a storm whiel
retndered hter an unmanageable wreck. She had
been 48 hours at sea, the Captain pronounced
her lost. While shre was rollintg in the trough ol
the sea, and expected every moment to founder
J1udge Butler had all called forward, and desired
thart eatcht should know one another so that i
attv reached the land, he, she or they, might re
po'rt the f'ate of the others. An elderly negr<
woman (the Stewardess, perhaps,) said, "old
maste-r, thtis is no titme for introductions; yot
had better pray'." He said, "I cannot, buit pray
old lady if yotu can." She instantly kntelt dowt
and po'ured out a fervent prayer to God for deliv
erance. In a moment after, the lights of the
steamer setit from Wilmington, in search of the
missing boat, were seen, and the were saved.
Mrs. Thompson who heard the Judges' narration,
after his return home, said to him, " brothen
Pickens, that old woman's prayer saved you!"
In the various offices of a State Legislator, a
Judge arid a Setnator in Congress, lie did his duty
and did it well.
Tihe writer of this short notice, who knew
Jttdge Butler well, catn say with truth, that he
never saw him fail to meet the jtust expectation
of his frientds. His was a noble nature; he scorned
a mean or ungutnerousi action. He was enminent
for his wit and contvivial q1ualities; yet, in hi~s
exuberant hiumnor, he never inttentionally woutnded
the feelings of' any otte.
In action, lie was fearless; he was, however,
bty nmo umeans rash ; he well understood what he
wished to do, before he moved.
lie was niot what is usually termed an eloquent
spea~ker; yut in his speeches, he frequently uttered
stublimte thoughts clothed in imipassionetlelo
quen~ice. He spoke from the heart and to the
hetart, anid henice hte was always heard with atten
tion and pleasure.
Many of his opinions, in the Court of Appeals,
are remarkable ihor their clear, forcible, contine
inig argumneunts anid just concltusions.
ils work, his day of trial, atnd his journey
over life's rough ways, are ended. He sleeps the
sleep that knows rio wakinig, till time shall be no
R~eember him, friends ! Recolleet his fine
dorid face, his head of snow, his dancing eyes,
his manly frame, bitt above all, remember Iris
aohle, generous hemart of love to his faunily, lisi
relative"s his frienmds, his conitry, and even to his
pe-eis. Hatred hmad uo place in his generous
bosonm: he nmighut, and~ vey likely did, despise
matny of his enemies, Lhat lie p*sd them more
than' he ever hated them.
Tfhus recalling him, let his name live iin your

On all sides it seems to be cordially conceded

TWO DUELS NEAR HAMBURG*
We learn from the Augusta Coatittiliuoali.1 that
two duels were fought on Wednesday morning on the
South Carolina side of the river, a few Sundred yards
above Hamburg. The first took place between Mr.
PurnLirs and Mr. foortrFKET.D; the second between
Mr. PnATuER and Dr. AmILEPS. Messrs. Pniuips &
PRAYTH RE are the editors of the Lafayette (Alabama)
Tribirne, and Mr. AloonusanRs' and Dr. APPLEBY,
editors of the Lafayette llerald.
The distance was ten paces, and pistols the weap.
ons used. After the first fire in each duel, mutual
friends succeeded in adjusting the difficulties between
the parties. Fortunately, neither duel was attended
with any injury.
THE SUGAR CROP.
The following, from the Cincinnati Commercial ol

that should the season prove favorable, there will h
a larger crop of sugar produced this year in Louis.

breadth of land has been planted, and great attentiot
will be paid to the cane, the high prices stimulating
each planter to extra exertions."

Everything in this world hinges upon trying one'

REVISION OF KING yAMES' VERSION, N0. 5.
A numbaer of combatants, pro anal con, haavinmi
entered thec lists on thae Rivision question, we shal
Igroup together in as small a space as practicablk
Ia few thoughats more and leave the field.
We promised in this discussion to show that tb
conmng veso fthe Bible Union will be th
work, not of Sectarian, but of Christian scholar
ship-that Sectarianism is not capable of such:a
|Thec first proof whrich we offer Is, that there ar
no facts in evidence going to show that it ever ha
-done any thing of the kind. When did ever
number of denominations agree to put forth
translation of the scriptures ? How would it b
possible for sects holding different tenets, ti
unite in a translation which if faithful must of ne
cessity work the ruin of some of them?' The Blap
tists must have aaimmersion." That would c
-course kill off the Methodists, Presbyterians, &c
The Methodists could not get along without thei
"r Bishops." This would not suit the "indepen
dent " notions of the Baptists and Congregational
ists. The Episcopalians must hold on to " Eas
ter," as authority for the feasts of thme Church
aTo thais Presbyterlans would object as a relic o
Popery ; and so it would go on to the end of thi
chapter. Well those denominational characteris
tics never would be given up by the sects which
maintain them. Thiey could not be induced ta
submit their peculiarities to the test of a faithfu
translation. Each and all of those sects wouk
Ivery willingly agree to huave a translation which
would favor their views, bus not one thrat wouke
discountenance tbrn. The nearest approach eve:
made to sucha a thing, so far as we know, was tha
reunion of several denominatiouls in the Americar
Bible Society-to circulate the present; versior
without note or comment. But they all well kneu
that their preachers and missionarios would no'
fail so to interpret it as to secure their converts t<
their respecti~eedenominations. So that in faci
the " Union"a was wholly sectarian, however cath
olic it might appear in theory.
But while denominations are uniformly tenaciouw
of their distinguishaing features, and never can b<
induced to endanger them by an appeal to simphc
scholarship, thecre are many individuals connetedl
with thaem who can rise superior to party consider
ations: men whao love christianaity better than " the
churchm," who respect thre Bible more than the
creed, who are willing to submit the inaterpretationl
of the scriptures, to the only tribaunal which in the
existing style of thinags can determine it ;-i. e. to
the scholarshmip of the christian world. This is
just what the 'a Bible Union " has done. The
members of this society, which i open to all ot
God's word free frot any sectarian bias. They
have drawn up a constitution and laid down a rule
in reference to translating, that the translator shall
befaithful to the original; and under this rule
they employ any scholar, of any sect in Christen
dom, and the only question asked Is, is he honest 1
is lie competent 1 If there be sectarianism in this,
then may we despair of being able to get rid of it.
Now it would be unfair to deny that in one par
ticular the Immorsionists have an advantage in the
revision enterprise; which is, that in the transla
tion of Baptizo and its cognates, the voice of
Christendom has spoken. Methodists, Lutherans,
Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Romanists, nay, in
fidels, also, all bear concurrent testimony. So that
they risk nothing, and in the nature of the case
risk nothing on the translation of this word, but in
other respects we are not apprised of any advan
tage they have which is not shared by others in
the Union. It only remains to notice briefly one
or two objections to the Revision and we close.
1st. It is objected that t'e present version is
amply sufficient so far as respects the means o1
salvation. Let it be granted, and what then ? It
is not simple salvation only, that the christian is
to strive after; but to know and do God's will as
far as possible. Perhaps the worst translation ever
put forth might afford the means of salvation.
Any small portion of the Holy Scriptures might
serve as a lamp to light the soul to Heaven, but nc
one would assign this as a reason why we should
not have the whole Bible, and by parity of reasoE
we should have the best possible translation.
2nd. The sacred style it is said will be lost.
There are many who do not know that the
"style " of our version is simply the style of the
age in which it was made, and pertained to all
writings civil and religious, sacred and profane.
We apprehend the law books will afford many in
stances of this kind of style. A common sense
farmer might go into any of the law offices ft
Edgefield and find books written In a style that
would be about as intelligible to him as French.
Try it some day when you are "in town."
Now we confess to the force of this objection im
the mind of one who is seniinentally inclined, for
we labor under the weakness, as many would
term it, to considerable extent ourself. There are
few who are more sensitive to the power of asso.
ciation; but we should not mistake poetry for re
ligion, and the word of God should not be obscured
for the sake of sentiment.
8rd. " It will have a tendency to unsettle men's
minds." Perhaps it may,' arid if it should so un
settle them as to drive them to the study of the
scriptures, -a good work will have been accom
plished. But we look upon translations as so many
commentaries on the Bible and calculated to throw
light upon it, and if we could, we should -have
every translation to be found. This objection we
may observe has been urged against every transla
tion that has been made; but the execution of the
work has always falsified the prediction. We
might go on to state and refute other objections,
but deem it useless to do so. What we have writ
ten has not been prompted by sectarian feeling.
We claim to be as free from denominational preju
dices as most men, and appeal to our antecedents,
ministerial and editorial, in proof of the fact.
Let the Revision go on then ; help it on if you
can with a clear conscience; if not, keep cool,
Iyou need not use it unless you wish ; the Revision
ists have neither the will nor the power to force it
on the people, and like all others It must stand 01
fall according to its met-its. E. L. W.

AN IKPORTANT PIOPOSITION.
Ma. Enrron :--I noticed in the Richmond En

Mr. LACOUTURE of France, and Governor Wiss
of Va., with a design to bring about a direct com
munication between Lyons in France, and the port
of Norfolk, Va. Mr. LieNRE states influence
means and everything necessary (even the Stca
mer-s are ready to put on the Chesapeake line al
once) to accomplish so desirable an end on th<
part of France can at once be brought into requi

with that State. 'Tie true lhe has selected the State
of Van., as a trading point on account, of its nmany
advantages, but desires the entire South to unit<
her energies with that of Virginia, in order t(
carry out this glorious enterprise.
Gov. Wisn p~roposes to the Company to fit ui
one steamer, give thirty days notice of the day oj
her arrival at Norfolk, and Virginia and Nortia
Car-olina merchants will then meet and purchxas<
her goods and have a return Cargo of our producE
for her. This move will be seconded by every
true Southerner, or at least every one who truly
-desires the advancement of the South. Wouli
fthat every Southerner could see into the matter at
-clearly as Gov. Wiss. Their ethusiasm would al

them to ponder from year to year ever the disad
vantages resulting from the supineness of the peo

REVISIOlN R AXINED.
MIR. EDIT'on:-Wth your kinderess I beg leave
to trespass upon your patience again, and I think
for the last time, unless something more than has
been said upon the Revision of the present re
ceived version of Scriptures is said. I did not in
tend to hold an indefinite controversy. In the first
article I wrote, I simply intended to advance
my views upon the subject, and In so doing I
grought down upon my head two powerful Revision
ists, one under the mask-face of "BE. L. W." as
Air. EDXOhnDs, the very accomplished gentleman
and christian, I suppose calls all writems who de
and soni other writers. They however furnished
the printer with their name at the bottom of their
articles, so that any one who demanded it could re
ceive it from the Editor, without requiring it
through the nedium of the newspaper. When it
becomes us to sign our name to any thing we say
or do, in public print, we will do so. We will stop
least we are thought to be too sarcastic, and say
this, that though there are s, eming contradictions
in the Bible, they do not affect in the least the
doctrines therein contained.
Mr. Edmonds says your correspondent is sadly
at fault. " Revision " is older by several hundred
years than the political segment of the Union to
which lie refers. Mr. E. has mistaken us alto
gether. In our allusions we had no reference to
Tyndale & Frith Revision associations. We spoke
of the Revision of the present day, in the nine
teenth ceutury-the Revision of King James'so
called improperly, for King James did not revise
any Scripture, but this is what it is called in ourday.
Again Mr. E. saw no charge made against the
Bible Union at all-it was .ainst the Revision of
the Scriptures. We are -ry sorry we are at so
great a loss, as to be unable to furnish our friend
Mr. E. with any names from England or the North,
to establish what we assert, but we will come
home In our beloved old South Carolina, and give
names which are perhaps as good as England or
the North can furnish. Well, Mr. Norris a Bap
tist Preacher, and by the way a gentleman and a
christian too, says it is a fearful undertaking and
quite out of order. Mr. Porter, a Methodist
Preacher of high repute and a profound theologian,
a christian and gentleman, says it is treading on
sacred ground, and it would do for angels, not men,
such an undertaking. We are informed by one of
the members of the Baptist Church, that Mr.
Manly is bitterly opposed to it, and he is onn that
stands No. 1 with the Baptists, and very high in
this village as a learned divine. One of the sub
scribers to Mr. E's new Revision works in this
place, and a member of the Baptist Church, says
he has come to the conclusion to have nothing
more to do with it, together, with two Methodist
preachers, who give their decided opposition to
the plan under consideration. We could give
names for what we say, but we have taken this
liberty without advising them of our intention so
to do. If necessary we will do it at some other
time. The persons who we have referance to, live
in our village, not in England, where but few, if
any one knows the fact or not, of what their views
are on Revision of the scriptures.
I will conclude this reply by saying we hope
Mr. E. will furnish his readers with correct quo
tations from the English Bible, not as it is in his
piece, incorrect. We refer him to the Bible again
to see what it says. If a man cant quote correct
from his own mother tongue, the English, we hard
ly think him competent to quote from the orignal
Greek. There is nothing said in the 7th chap. and
7th verse of Romans, about covetousness, and in
stead of " but covetousness," it is "or covetous
ness." In Ephesians 5th chap. and 3rd verse, and
in Deuteronomy 6th chap. and 16th verse, it reads
"ye" instead of "you" shalt not tempt, &c.
Genesis, 2d chap. and 5th verse, " before it was in
the earth," is " before it grew," or in other words
it is a transposition-" before it was in the earth,"
is entirely left out in the quotation.
Now, if the scriptures have been translated more
than once and mistakes occur, we hold they may
occur again, for if men make mistakes from plain
English quotations, what may they not do from
Greek. But most of commentators say It is
seeming contradictions in the Bible not real; we
do not recollect of hearing any person say so, but
infiels or scepticks. THE BIBLE.
DEATH OF AN EDroR-0. H. Wells, Esq.,
who was Editor and proprietor of the Greenville
Mountaineer for nearly twenty-five years, died at
the residence of Mr. W. Hleine, of this city, on
Sunday last, of consumption, aged ffty-two years.
He retired from the charge of the Mountaineer
on account of declining health, and accepted the
situation of mail agent on the Greenville and
Columbia Railroad, hoping that the more active
duties of that otlice would restore his physical
strength. But the insidious archer had marked
him for its owni, and the prayers and kind atten
tion of friends could not save him from the irre
vocable flat which had gone forth, to which all
must bo0w in turn. By the advice of his physi.
ci he left Greenville a week ago, hoping that
a trip to the seaboard might be of advantage to
him, but the journey was too niuch for him, and
he sunk under the effort, and expired in a few
days after his arrival. He was greatly respected
an'd beloved by all who knew him, and his death
will be mourned by a large circle of friends and
relatives.- Charleston .1%ews.
DEAT H OF U. S. SENATos.-" Ion," the Wash
ington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun,
writes as follows:
Though not three months have elapsed since
the adjournment of the Senate, three of~ the
members of that body have, within that time,
fallen before the great destroyer. The decease
of Seniator Adamns, of Miss., has been followed
in quick succession by that of Senator Bell, of
N. H., and Senator- Butler of S. C. Thiey were
neither of them in firm health during thme late
session. Judge Butler for a number of years
past, has held a position in the Senate and be.

it shall re-assemble, could be more regretted
than that of the veinerable Senator from South
THE GRAT WesT.-A correspondenit of an
Ohio paper, writing from Iowa, draws doleful
and laughable pictures of frontier life. Here is
a sample of life where people expect to get rich
before they know it,. and pay five, ten and fifteen
per cent. for monecy per month. Delightful place
to live, no doubt. We reconmmend it to the thou
sand and one persons now in this vicinity, who
seems to have taken the emuigration fever. The
correspondent above referred to, says:
" Debti debt I everybody in debt I Sell corner
lots to pay the merchant, then borrow of the
lawyer to buy real estate again; borrow of the
miller to pay the doctor, till there is nothing that
has anything like a fixed market. It costs too
much to live here ; it costs altogether too much
to die, for poor folks ; their cemetery lots anud
undertakers' bills are so enormous. A place six
feet long in a bunch of hazel brush, costs inure
thnn a lot in Greenwood, and all because there
is a prospect of a city some time in the future.
If it were not for prospects, what would become
of this wonderful State?"
AoTHEmR SPUT.-The latest intelligence from
Cleveland, where the New School General Asseum
bly of the Presbyterian Church is now in session,
represents that a division of that body is likely
occur. The dividing line is the old score--the
slavery question. it is said that the Northern
anud Southern delegates meet daily in separate
caucus, and resolutions will be finally reported
which will cause a formal separation. The ec
lesiastical bodies of the country seem to be
thoroughly imbued wjgh political strife.

NOT IN WASHINGTON CITY.
The following telegraph dispttch to the Pe
tersburg press, gives a fuller report than any
yet received by us of the riot in Washington :
WASUIIsGTO, June 1.-The municipal elec
tions commenced to-day forenoon. Much ex
ment prevailed in the second, fourth and seventh
wards, owing to large number of rowdies from
Baltimore, consisting of Plug Uglies, and other
organizations, that were known to have arrived
by the early train in the city, whose presence
itistigated more disorderly conduct than our own
citizens. Fights took place in each of these
wards. Pistols, knives and clubs were used with
deadly effect, and several persons were wounded
severely. The rowdies procured a swivel gun
and took it to the fourth ward polls, and
threatened to open fire Ton the polls if the bo
dy of foreigners were allowed to vote. In the
meantime, the Mayor, finding the civil force in
sufficient to preserve order, requested the Presi
dent to order out the marines from the barracks,
An order was issued, and one hundred and ten
marines were marched with fixed bayonets to
the spot, the rowdies assailing them with the
vilest abuse and epithets. When the swivel was
about to be fired into the. ranks the marines
charged and took it. The rowdy crowd fired on
the marines, side and front, and one man fell
An order was now given, and two platoons fired
into the cowd, sweeping them uiR Seventh street
and from the market house. The scene was
past description. After the first discharge the
rioters continued to shoot from the corners and
stalls. Several persons were killed and many
wounded, but it is believed more met their dea
by pistol shots than from the marines. The city
is now quiet. Another demonstration is feared
It had been pre-arranged that a large force
should arrive from Baltimore on the seven o'clock
train this evening, (Monday,) but hearing that
their friends were returning they desisted, in the
meantime the Marines are drawn up at the rail
road depot to receive them, should they come.
The Marines being on duty all day, the Secreta
ry ordered out the Light Artillery, from Fort
McHenry, and they were expected to arrive be
fore ten o'clock to-night. The mob have obtain.
ed possession of another cannon, and threatened
to destry the houses of the Mayor and Capt.
Tyler of the Marines. The families and valua
bles of these gentlemen have been moved to
places of safety.

Coxr.xo NEw CENTs AT THE MiN'r.-The Phil
adelphia Ledger says the demand for the new
cent pieces in that city is unabated. Of the
mode of making this coin at the miat it says:
There are at present nine presses engaged in
making the impressions upon this new coin; live
mills are also in constant operation forming the
rim on the coin previous to receiving the im.
pression. These last named machines are capa
of making rims upon three various kinds of coir
at the same time; at present, however, they are
engaged upon the new cente xclusively. About
one hundred persons in allare constantly engaged
in the operations of the mint, and at the preseni
time the whole force are employed on the c cent.'
Each of the presses throw off eighty-six finished
coins per minute. At this rate, working from
nine o'clock, A. M., till three o'clock, P. M., the
nine presses throw off each day the sum of $2,
786.40 in cents: that is, providing the presses
are kept going regularly.
Sixty thousand dollars of this coin, six mnil
lion pieces, were paid out on Monday and Tues
day, and orders are still coming in from all quar
ters of the Union, even from the south and south
west, where the old cent never obtained circula
tion-lowest prices there being graduated to the
smallest silver coin. From the present indica
eations the old cent will be hurried out of use
and out of sight, even sooner than were the small
Spaiiish fractions of a dollar.

transport of troops, to carry 10,000 mcii. "She
is expected," says the London Chronicle, " to
realize a speed of at least twenty miles an hour,
or to accomplish the voyage from England to
Australia (between which countries she is to
run) in thirty days. Reckoninig the cost at so
much per ton, it is said to b~e one of the cheap.

for the launching-or perhaps we should rather
say for her being lowered gradually down an in

accompanied by an official, appearing from the

ExTRAoRDINARY Rux AT BILAIRD.-A match
dame of billiards of 100 up was played a few
gays since at Madden's billiard rooms, New

mereiant of that city, and Barney Cristal, some
what celebrated among the "fancy" as an A
No. 1 player. The amateur gave Barney 25,
Barney p ing his carom game against his op
ponent's fu game, who ran as high as 76, Bar
ney being but 8; when, by exquisite skill and
good play, he overtook the 76, allowed him the
25, and won the gamie. This has been consid
ered the gratest run made by any player in the
United States, and we doubt if it ever has been
equaled in Europe.
SXCcoucN IN SPAIN.-Smugglinginthe North
and East of Spain is carried on to a greater ex
tent than ever, and the smugglers, when attacked,
fight for their property. The parlamento gives
details of a desperate affray in the neighporhood
of Saragossa on the 26th of April between 40
contrabandists and 20 infantry soldiers. The
latter were supported by20 cavalrymen, who had
carried them to the scene of action en crupe,
but the nature of the ground did not allow the
horse to act. A lieutenant and a soldier -were
badly wounded, and an ensign was killed. The
smueaglers made off, having four of their vum
ber ciled or wounded. They were escorting 48
or 50 loads of contraband goods, the retreat of
which they appear to have successfully covered.
