On the other side of thme river, the " Stucdent'sc ros
trum,'' is seen at nu elevation of '700 feet. Th<
rock wall, beneath the rostum, with its wel
f.'rm~ied fire-place, and its st~raight seanms giving
the apupearance ouf having beena built by the mason
is bgh sublime and curious-a nmster-p~iece and a
tbe same time a freak of nature. And then the
I'oanming waters of Oceatnna, pcouring over a preci
pice 120 feet in hecight, presetnts a scene of unriv
.alk( d beamuty and grandeur,-a scene which is no1
to be eff'aced from the memory until the last em
!ber is col upon the altar of life. At this entran
wing iocale, our guide became animated and comn
snunicative; "he was carelessly learned and blunt
27 elotgueaf.h After making sbtna ap t qlotation:
from Byron and expressing his regret that the no
ble Barb never had an opportunity of visiting Tal
lulah, he told us it always seemed to him that
"Oceanna was forcing out diamonds by machine
ry without being measured." Tempesta is 110
I feet high, and Ladore the fifth and last of the cat
aracts is 45 feet high. The most interesting point
in going down to these falls, which are not far
0 apart, is the " Trysting rock." This romantic
I spot has already been celebrated in story. Ac- b
# cording to our guide's account, the ovephanging c
rock here was once the witness of a very touching
little love scene. Many years ago, an old gentle
man with his wife and daughter were making the
r descent to Tempesta; but the young lady becom
ing weary stopped to rest at the Trysting rock.
Whilst the "oll folks" were enjoying the scenery
I- on the margin of the river, and whilst their lovely
2 daughtor was lost in reverie, she was suddenly ac
Y costed by one whose voice had power to make her
heart bound with the quickened pulse of emotion.
e The lovers, long separated by Mammon's hard poli
cy, had at last met; but their interview was brief
a and painful. In vain did the young man, whose
only fault was poverty, beseech his betrothed to
it fly with him to some distant country, where they
id might spend the balance of their days in wedded
b:iss. The young lady was tenderly and devoted
" ly attached to her parents, and therefore inexora
ble as fate. With a cry of despair the baffled lover
darts back up the rugged steep, and is never after
wards seen by her, who loved, and yet refused to
, follow himl. But the excitement was too much for
that fragile being. When her fond, but erring par
ha ents returned, they found their child in a swoon,
and it was several days before she was sufficiently
d recovered to tell whom she had seen at the Tryst
ing rock. But to continue the description,-after
e gettina down to the river, you are brought face to
face with much that is interesting, sublime and
picturesque. Your attention is directed to a minia
ture lake, where in 1837 an English Clergy man,
named Hawthorn, was drowned whilrt bathing.
g This is called " Hawthorn's pool." A short dis
tance below, may be seen -the precipice 50 feet
high, over which a gentleman by the name of
lanks once fell into the water without being
drowne 1, or materially injured. This Is known as
Hanks' sliding place." On the other side of the
river, in a lofty wall of granite, you see the " paint
rocks " of a bright orange tint. Tempesta and
Lodore dashing impetuously over the great steep
Is rocks, are " sublimely beautiful." Delight and
awe strive for the mastery in yourbosom. Having
lingered as long as possible, you turn to leave these
S inspiring scenes with a feeling of regret. On go
e ing back to the Trysting rock, you feel inclined to
- sit down awhile, and londer upon what you have
seen. It tills your heart with gratitude and joy to
- think how much of the splendid, the eautifil and
e the sublime-what an infinite variety of view
h1 Tallulah has ever on exhibition for the lovers of
nature. The mind beis now to take in the niag
Y nitude of that terrible chana through which the
- river goes leaping over a series of falls and rapids
V until it makes a descent of at least 400 feel in less
ae than a mile. * eccan view," a high ridge of a
s mountain a little West of Talilah, is a favorite re
sort about suin set. I was much pleased with what
r I saw here. On one side, the horiron is graced
>- nad diversilied~ by the Currahee, and at hundired
ur other blue pieaks. Towards thea rising sun the vast
eexpanse of the " low country," ha< a peculiar ap
7- pearance,-something like that of the oceana.
e, Ik-ence the namaue of this view. '1 he le,:end of Tai
v. Ilulah is perfectly in character with the locality, uad
Ld also with the suaperstition of the lndians. Ini the
o olden times, a clan of the Aborigines who lived
k East of the Sahuda, sent out a select company of
Is warriors to make an explorationa of " Terrosa's

Lo, ers of the tribe wvefe despatched to look for the

ad thae Falls o'f Talhulah. By thae way, Terrora or
is ITallulah is the Indinan for terrible.

is a valley remarkable for its productiveness and

A Card to the Public.
A Report having been recently circulated with
a design to injure me seriously in this community,
---of which I was ignorant until the 9th inst.--I
take this method fully to contradict the report,
and beg leave to refer my friends to Mr. H. A.
CGAY, of Edlgfefld Villace, who, I think, will
give perfect satisfaction on the subject. As the
rumor appears to have had its origin from the cir'

THE COTTON CROP.
Baninotuni Cor'-rY, As.A., Sept. 8.
Massas. Emmroits: .I have just examincid care
fully my own crop, and the crops of' some of' my
neighbior., and have also conversed with a ntm
ber' of planters in this county, and from all the
countrv Sotuth of this to thme Florida line. The
result of nmy observattion and calculation is. thait
the cropI of this section will be very short. Inm
myown neighborhmood, the crop may, it' the fall
ia very fitvorable' one, slightly exceed the crop
oft last year', but the planters South of nme rep.
resent that their crop will not be so good as last
year. The weed is ge nerally good enough, but
it is poorly frutited, 'The proapecct no0w ioth
ing like so good ais it was three weeks ago. Th'le
leaves are tnrning red and ftdling off,~ antd the

IM . PEEY ON A ORTIMEN TU- 1
The talented editor of the Greenville Plriot, I
Maj. Perry, who recently took a trip to the
North, wrote, while absent, several excellent let
ters for his paper-from the number we clip the
PRIILADEi.PIiI.. August 30, 1857.
We have just returned from a pleasant ride
over the city of Brotherly Love. Philadelphia,
is a beautiful and delightful city, very different
from New York. The Fairmount water was
pure and very beautiful. The open squares are
delightful. They afford a pleasant walk for the
citizens, where they breathe pure, fresh air, after
being confined in their stores and shops. There
ought to be something of the kind in all great
cities and large towns. In Boston we were de
lighted with the Commons, which contain a large
number of acres. (seventy-five I believe,) which
were given by Governor Hancock on the condi
tion that no houses should ever he built on them.
The Girrard College, which we have just visited,
is a magnificent marble palace, built for the
education of the poor boys of the city. There
is something ludicrous in the idea of erecting
such a palace for the education of ragged chil- 1
dren. How much better it would have been for i
the founder of this College to have given the
fund which it took to erect these buildings, for
educational purposes; but he wished to leave a
monument hearing his own name in marble,
and, therefore, directed millions to be spent in
erecting those buildings.
The North and the South are very different
countries, but we hope they will ever remain one
great Republic. In all the Northern cities the
foreign population have taken the place of the
African race at the South. They perform all
the inenial duties, are hotel waiters, backmen,
police officers, draymen, boatmen and laborers
of all classes. There is a very decided charae
teristic diffeirence between tie North and the
South in all classes. There is more spirit and
a higher tone at the South, whilst there are more
industry and energy in the Northern people. In
dividuality is everything at the South, whilst ag
gregation prevails throughout the North. The
pride of a Southern planter is to live on his
plantation and be monarch of all he surveys;
but the Northern's ambition is to be one of a
company whose object is to improve and civilize
the country, and make money. The Southern
people like to stay at home and enjoy themselves.
The Northern people seem to be always travel
ing. Between this and New.York there are six
or seven daily trains of railroad ears running,
and each train carrying hundreds of passengers.
The other day I got in a large train from New
York at Burlington, and had to stand up in the
cars till I arrived opposite Philadelphia ! Not
a seat could be had in the whole train of ears!
There is one regulation adopted on the North
ern Railroads which ought to be enforced at the
South. No passenger is allowed to earry more
than fifty or seventy-five pounds of baggage. I
have seen gentlemen traveling from Columbia
to Greenville with a dozen trunks, and no extra
charge made for them. Such a thing is not toler
ated on these railroads, and ought not to be; but
on Northern railroads the charge is only one,
two and three cents per mile, whilst we charge
five! Would it not be more wise and just to
charge less and make passengers pay for extra
I find that very few of the Railroads in the
Northern States pay dividends equalling seven
per cent., notwithstanding theimmense travel on
them. This surprises me. The railway from
Philadelphia to New York pays a fine dividend
on the stock, but very few of the other roads
pay anything. Most of the railroads companies,
too, are greatly in debt.
The INortheirn people keep very few private
carriages. This is a terrible expense at the
South, and ought to be reduced. To keep a
carriage and horses for a drive of two or three
hours, once or twice a week, is paying high for
a little recreation. Here you go aboard of a
heautiful steamer and run up to Burlington
twenty miles, for twelve and a-half cents ! The
expense of carriage and horses at the South
leaves nothing to improv-e our houses and grounds.
At the North, every poor mann's cottage is a neat,
tidy aflaiir. Instead of keeping a parcel of lazy
domesties to wait on you, the Northern people
wait on themselves,- ands have everything about,
them much neater and prettier. Instead of hav
ing extensive grounds. unimproved, they have a
few acre~s, welf improved. Which is preferable ?
I have had thte pleasure of meeting several
South Carolinians at this hotel, and amongst
them. Mr. Nance and Mr. Carwyle, of Newber
ry, with their families. MIr. Springs and famnily,

ject of light and heat, which has attracted con
siderable public atten'tion. He explodes, by ex
perment, the notion that light retards the burn
ing or decomposition (of fuel. The Doctor has
sbown that fire burns as well in light as in dark
ness. Ie also proves that cold weather expe
dites the burning of fuel, because the atmos
phere is moroe dense. Wood will not burn as
rapidly in summer as in winter, or as fast on the

WORCHESTER, September 8.
A convention of the young men of this vicini
y favorable to the election of Hon. N. P. Banks,
r., for Governor, was held here this morning.
About thirteen hundred persons were present,
md the utmost enthusiasm prevailed.
Senator Wilson made a speech to the Conven
ion, endorsing the Americanism and Republi.
anism of Wm. Banks, the candidate for Gover
ior. He also said that President Buchanan had
3romnulgated the opinion that the Constitution
arries slavery wherever it goes, and he wished
his monstrous doctrine repudiated. The elee
ion of Mr. Banks, he said, would speak the voice
>f Massachusetts in opposition to that dogma.
When Mr. Banks made his appearance he was
!alled forth with great applause. He delivered
i lengthy and eloquent speech. He reviewed
he Republican movement from the start, attri
ating the National defeat to the want of manly
ioncessions. He said:

of a parent to select a college for his sons, se
cording to his own judgment of what is best for
them. No one has the tight to hold up to pub
li censure the exercise of this privilege. But

Ifyou wish to enjoy a REAL GiOOD CIGAR
one that will drown your troubles-throw your'
cares aside-cause you to forget your debts and
rlebtors too-enable you to be more lenient to
wards your enemies-make you love "i Wife. Clii
diren and Friends," with renaewed ardor and affee
tion-and, in short, to render you, for the time
beig, happy and comfortable, call on C. H.
KENNEY, at the Hamburg Cigar Store, and such
a Cigar you can obtain. He always keeps on
hand a splendid variety of the BEST BRANDS,
and sells them very low-yea, as we heard a gen
lenman and a good judge of a fine artice, say,
a Charlie Kenney keeps good Cigars-excellent I
mnight truthfully add-but lie sells them too cheap
-ruinously low."' llowever, if he sells them
wvithout receiving a remunerative profit that is his
fault. And besides lie is ever desirous -of selling,
and says lie can afford to sell cheap. Therefore,
we again say to each and every one, " Whenever
rou go to Hamburg to sell your Cotton, to buy
your Groceries, or to pay a Bank Note, always
alk in to the Hambnurg Cigar Store, and get a
at full of those Chnicc Cigars."
Mr. A. R AMS EY, Post Mlaster at Edgefield, Is
Agent for Mr. Katy, and also keeps a goed sup
ply of fine CIgars Ii Store. Try themr.
