THE LATE FAIR.
The Edgefield agricultural exhibitiun of Friday last

CHARLESTON, October 17, 1857.
I am sorry to think that my very first letter from
ie Metropolis must be the medium of bad news in
ec financial woirll. For a week past there has been
othing talked or thought of here but Suspended
anks and depreciated Bank Bills--and such a con
iotion has been stirred up as Old Charleston has nev
r had the pain of witnessing since the memorable
risis of 1837. The suspension exercises commenced
n Saturday last, the Bank of the State leading the
an, followed up on Monday and Tuesday by the
outh Western Rail Rond, South Carolina and Peo
le's Banks. The paisie which.ensued, chiefly among
3ose who, une.ceustomed to Bank operations, natu
ally became suspicious of the availability of the bills
f the Suspended Banks, was at once taken advan
mge of by the knowing ones, and notes of the Bank
f the State-the very best circulating medium ex
ant,-were freely sacrificed to the rapacity of specu
rttrs, to the tune of 10 and 15 per cent discount.
u such a condition of affairs, all confidence seemed
D be lost for the time being. Many were afraid eith
r to receive or pay out their small bills. for fear
ither of being unable to pass them or to obtain change
n making purchases-and consequently. both buyers
nd sellers were brought to a stand, and many good
pportnnities of making sales lost. On Thursday the
Planters & Mechanics" and the "Farmers & Ex.
hange " Banks followed suit. By this time, the ex
itemuent had subsided and a better understanding of
he nature of the difficulties seemed to prevail. It
ris shoiun satisfactorily to the inexperienced in
kinking scieneo that the bills of the Bank of the

urrency that could be immediately substituted for

easures were set on foot to relieve the community

meeting on Wednesday to talk over the matter and if
ossible devise some means of delivering their eon
tituents out of this unfortunate dilemma, but came to

Actuated by patriotic impulses, the deceased

tirs required his presence nearer his business con
ections; and perhaps, he had also seen reason to
espair of the pro-slavery movement in that Ter
itory. And he returned home to die of Typhoid
ver, before-he could ever behold the sorrowing
ice of a Mother who doted on him, as the child
f her old age, and before he could embrace the
