*AIE'S NT ]BORN To SORRtow.-ThO record
of huma life is-r more melancholy that its
ouse; the hours of quiet enjoyment are not
oted; the. thousand graces and happiness of
sociallife, the loveliness of nature meeting us
at every step, the buoyance of spirit resulting
from hesith and pure air, the bright sun, the
starry frmamen al that cheers man on his
road through his probationary state, that warms
the heart and makes life pleasant, is omitted in
thenarrative, which. can only deal with facts;
and we read of disappointment, and sickness,
and death, and exclaim, " Why is man born to
sorrow.? He is not so; years of enjoyment brace
the soul for the grief when it comes; and when
it does come, it comes mixed with so many
alleviating circumstances, for those who do not
wilfully reject all the lesser pleasures which the
loving Father of all his works has with so ten
der a care scatterecd at our feet, that even the
grief is far less in the reality than it appears in
THE TUEF.-Flora Temple, who has been con
sidered the mistress of the American turf, has
been beaten by a young mare, the Rose of Wash

2.37. Flora has been in 2.30, but is not likely
to retain her laurels. The match came off at

of St. W. A DAXS, in the 34th year of her age.
The subject of thisnotice was remarkably pleas

Death is at all times solemn ! But when it comes
in our midst and takes from among us the young

Is doubly solemn. The deceased was the pride of
her parents-an ornament in the social circle, and
truly loved by all who knew her. But alas! she
is gone!-Gone from earth to heaven! Trans
planted by Heavenly hands to bloom in immortal
youth and beauty eternally in the Kingdom of
'God. For the last three years she was an exemplary
member of the Methodist Church.
"I'Deafest Susan, thou ha# jeft us

But 'tis God who hath bereft us
He can all our sorrow's heal."

T E publication of this journal, from circum
. stances beyond the control of the proprietor,
has been suspended for some months. Having re
eently received much encouragement from good
-and true men, it is proposed to resume its publica
tion without delay, as a
LITERARY AND POLITICAL JOURNAL,
And we are encouraged to believe on such a basis
as will preclude any probability of failure.
As a Literary Journal, it will be devoted to the
develupement of SOUTHERN TALENT. There
is no paper in this State and very few in the South
ern States that make Literature a distinct and
prominent feature. The aim of the Conductors of
THE EXAMINER will be to elevate it to a high
standard in this department, which will be under
the control of one of the ablest and most experi
enced editors in the State, JOHN G. BOWMAN,
Esq , a writer well and favorably known through
out the South.
As a Political Journal, it will at once take ground
and abide by the old landmarks of
THE CALHOUN STATE RIGHTS PARTY,
owing no allegiance to any National Party, nor
seeking to advance its interests by subserviency to
any local elique whatever. It will be entirely in
dependent in its expressions of opinion on public
men and measures-in short, the aim will be to
make it a faithful representative of the people, and
a fearless advocate of the interest of the State.
The position of the South at this juncture-the ap
parent truckling of the appointees and organs of
the Administration to the Free Soil or Black Re
publican Party, as exhibited in the course of the
Governor of Kansas. demand that the Press of the
South should shake off the shackles of party, and
unhesitatingly define its position, and avow its de
termination to maintain and defend the rights of
the Southern States. It is now too late to deplore
the formation of sectional parties-the South, as a
Section, must fieht her own battles or be over
whelmed. This department will be under the di
rection and management of W. B. JOHNSTON,
Esq., long connected with the Journalism of South
Carolina. :nd who is well and favorably known as
an experieneed Editor.
We consider it due to all who may be disposed to
sustain it, to avow that in politics the RXAMINER
will be essential a State Rights Journal.
The paper will be continued in the same hand
some style and forni as before-a large quarto con
taining eight pages and forty columns of matter
WEEKLY at Two Dollars per annum. It is also,
in contemplation to issue from the same Office and
up'n the eame political principles,
THE DAILY AND TRI-WEEKLY EXAMINER,
The Daily at Six Dollars and the Tri-Weekly at
Three Dollars per annum.
We have all confidence that the State Rights
Party of South Carolina will sustain at the Capital
of the State, such an organ of her ancient and well
deflnewl principles. Every consideration of patriot
ism. intetret and safety demands that in conjunction
with other true journals of the State, such an organ
should be established and maintained. These de
irous of subscribing or contributing in any way to
its support, will please address " Editors of the
Examiner," at this place.
