Since my last, we have had a very acceptable
change in the atmosphere-iving us-several days of
seasonable, lracing weaitl:r.
The Report of the Board of ilcalih, published on
Wednesday, conarmns is.l thei atsurances you have re
ceived of our alit-st oiuttire exeuiption f.-tn the dreaded
epidemic, concerning which so tuany exaggerated re
oris are still prevailing in the country. Only ten
(10) white persoins died during the week. arid of this
number, all with the exception-of one case of Yellow
Pever,'and one of Searlet Fever, were from chronic
or ordinary diseases. For a week past we have hoard
of no other cases. and all apprehensions have ceased.
Our financial isticulties are gradually passing away.
The excitement abot the DManks has .ubsidel, and
bills not only of our own but of other States, whgre
suspensions bnva been the order of the day, freely
pass current aiong the intelligent iortion of our
business community. A nmeeting of the Directors or
the suspended Banks was held on Tuesday lat. at
which arrangentouts were ent.red into to nceit the
issues of each other in pnytuetmt for all dues, and on
deposit from cusltomers. Several of our speci-pnying
Banks have recoived large rewittances of gold during
the week, and coitinue to brave the crisis manfully.

confidence, and Lo inspire us with strung hoapes of a

TIE SENATORIAL CANDIDACY.
The election of a Senator, to fill the place of the
m1onted BUTr, is one of the matters of stiperior
terest which is to come before our Legislature at its
preaching session. Prominent among the names
leh have been placed befoar the State, is that of
on. F. W. PicKESS 'of Edgefiold. As .some of the
her candidatos for this high and responsible position
me deemed it necessary to say, through their friends,
at they are certainly in the field, we have thought it
it right to make a similar statement in regnrd to ou'r
imediate fellow-citizen. That there may then be no
isconstruction of his position in the matter, we say,
ton sufficient authority, that the friends of Col. PicK
cs will certainly press hirname for the post in ques
un, believing Laim to be eminently qualified to dis
iarge its dutiis in a manner that will prove accepta
.o to South Carolina; and, in thus speaking, they

AUGUSTA, FOR TIlE WINTER.
Having spent a day in the city of Augusta last
'eck, we extract therefrom an item or two.
1. Augusta never offered finer inducements in the
rious branches of trade than she does this fall.
2. 'he Iusiuess of the season is considerably do
yed by the moneyed difficulties of the passing crisis.
3. Merchants are waiting with great anxiety for the
aning-to-town of their country friends; in fact,
iey are keenly on the lookout.
4. The consequeneo will be. the briskest possible
ampetition when the trade is fiirly opened.
5. The manifest intention on the part (if sellers, is
nick sales for small profits.
6. The season being put off liter than usual, tie
usiness of the winter must be accomplished in a
ore limited speace of time.
7. Hence (that is., from these several facts) the con
lusion may lie drawn, that Augusta, during the next
ro nmnths. will lie a wonderful fline plaee to get good
'S. And to aseertain where to get them, consult our
11. Augusta has theatrical amiusecuts in progress,
nd will continue to hmo them fro.n time to time
uring tho winter.
10. Sie :also un'irls Ovster-Houses.of good quality,

11. or do we mean by this to say, that sie has
a goot Hotels. The " United States," and several
tijers, are still there, doing as well as the hard times
12. And, spenking of hard times, it just occurs to
that the people of Augusta are lokuingremnarkably
heerful under the pressure. It goes to lrove that
icy are a philosophical smrt of folks, as little apt t

Congressional Distrioth ieeitintly'delivered a speech cr t
at Yorkville, ii whiich he diatliotly announces his po- hea
aition in regard to tihe Dixmo4racy and the Adminis- she
tration. His grounds are.:procisely those of the the
Southern Rights Demop:'atie.arty of South Carolina; not
and, as an 1iumble.ezpogentof that party, we hail Shc
with pleasure this tiJMely. ditlara.ion of opinions on oe
the part of Mr. Bove. W ekll knew, from his po- me
litieal antecedents, that si hnaust be the complexion an
.of his politics. But while he was still silent, there pri,
was room left for rumor to ,mis-state his position and wb
for partizanship to advantage its cause by wrongly gre
construing that silence. It is on this account that anm
his many friends throughout the State will learn with to I
much satisfaction, that hohistaken a fitting oppor- is I
tunity before his immediateieostbituents to announce the
his views with a directness tha doe's not admit of dis- car
frtion. We believe nowlia, with the exception of
Messrs KEITT and McQuiau@%ur Congressional dele
gation is united as to 'thedaluty of South Carolina
towards her sister States V the South and the conser- th
vative-patriota of the'whole iountry. The nature of Stf
that duty is thus set forthlbyl'Mr. BorcE:
"Shall we join the Kno othings in opposition i
to the Democracy? To do go.would be absurd in the
extreme, because the Know'INothingd are dead at the th,
North, are dying out at the south, and are organized
on erroneous priuciplee, an4 on too narrow a basis. It 1
is urged in some quarters. that we should disregard
all other parties and fortn'a'great Southorn Party;- th
but this is liable to oventh~ming objections. In the
first place it is impracticafe, for you cannot form a So
great party without the.bos of success. The fact ap
that if the whole Souti; ,e"e united into one great
Southern Party, it yould-be in the Minority in both
Houses of Congress, antd.ihe Electoral College, ex- thc
tinguishes the hope of ditch a party accomplishing Ar
anything. It would be the organization of despair, I
and yont can never organi&s a party under the spell
of death. If-I an right'.sp far, then, as that this ex- we
elusive Southern party camhot be formed, there is no ri
use to wake this ;nefietual;effort. But if it could be
forded, the fact that it could accotamplish nothing,
being a minority party, would., in ty opinion, be a P
conclutire objection againAit." a f
And again, lie remarks: set
"To securo our rights inito Union, there is but one we
way protising any hope of.succcss, thtit is, to forni Et1
an allitice with a Northern conservative party, strottg
enough by the co-oporatioft, to control the Govern
inent. The DemocratIe party, is the only party that an
answers this description. -The principles of tho Dem- thi
ocratic party are unexceptionable upon the questiont
of slavery; non-interventiolt by the General Govern- to
ment; equality in the teritories; the right to hold St
slaves in all territories; t6iright of every new State
to adminmion into the Union without reference to its
doinestic institutions. .1 afmit that the genius of the all
Northorn Democracy in-obiedienoee to the instinct of an
sehf-preservation under th. pressuro of a home public by
tentiment, does desire to.ee free, intAead of slave
States, grow up. The costeluion I draw is not of non- O1
action with this party, 'but of co-operation under tho
guard'of a prudent vigilbuce. Lot us in this respect
be guided by the genius -' Mr. Calhoun. Under his
great leadership we acted hitl that party, but we did wh
not beconto its blind parisans. I would pursite the is
same policy. One thing should be renembered, the a
South are in a majority nthe Democratic party, and
if they act with sufcieo liserotion, they need not
suffer detriment from t allies. Thoy could and th
Ishould -seo that they did tit place power in any but

wards the presentadmi .sc tion, Mr. Bovcr.'s view
is identical wit4 that which has all along been ex
pressed by those of us who have advocated concurrent pO
action with the govornm iA and the democracy to save PA
the constitution, the rigi of the South, and, if possi
ble, the integrity of the 1-public. Like him too, we en
have steered clear of the "'fanaticIsm of nationality" th
on the one side and tIe fanaticism of isolation" on
the other. Neither haany of us forgotten for a U
moment, "that the cause of the South is outr para-w
motunt piurpose." With a clear record on all these
points, we can safely, afj do most heartily, endorse
the expressions of aentia t which follow: ,o
"So far as Mr. Bueha 's Administration is con
cerned, I will gladly sa in it when right-I will o"
firmly oppose it wheji4 the wrong. And I trust of
such will ever he the a ' tde of South Carolina; for p
sad indeed would he ow isition, if through a frantic .o
z-eal, we should prefer th*triumph of a party to the or
interests of our countr There are two dangers
which beset us In this S the fanaticism of~nation- -Pt
ality and thie fatnataeisms isolation. The first seduces g,
us with ita visions of 'dm~eur-thme second mtisleatds
our judgmenot wit i. iotie fervor. We must
avoid b'oth extremtes, 'valling ourselves of theri
advantages of btoth, avoid the dangers of either.
Acting with a National-party, we must not forget that o"
the cause of the South is our paramount piurpose."
The speech from which we make the foregoing ex- Ct
tracts (and which "by the way has been very hand- dt
somely reported by the "Yorkvihle Engquirer") is rep
reseted as having beetn received by the citizens of
York with "warm and cordiald applause." The E"t- be
guire itself, we are pleased to observe, characterizes w
it as "highly conservative," tidding, at the same time,
that it "seemed to give universal satisfaction."
Thtis is not to be wondered tit. Such sentiments,
propmerly expressed, would doubtlees receive thte sane- ipl
tion of every district and parish in- South Carolina;
Because, they are the suggestions of an enlightened ph
prudence, clad in the paneply of a stern patriotism. E"
.We trust that our friends of the extreme wing of the tW
Carolina Denmocracy will now ground thteir arms, and, de
if possibile, unite heartily in fully testing the wisdom
of thte advice of the Hion. Mr. Iloyen, which, we etm- of

WoIA's DEvo'rfor.=-Ot-of the dark scenes
of murder and outrage that attended the massa
cre of the English residents at Cawnpore, there
comes one of those incidents which through all
ages have proved. the heroism of woman and
their devotion to those who have secured their
love. When the unfortunate Englishmen were
led out to death; their wives followed and, cling
ing to them, asked only that they might die with
them. History has recorded no more touching
scene than must have presented itself in the
Cawnpore slaughter house, when these women
with their arms around their husbands claimed
the privilege of suffering with them. But the
ferocity of their captors denied to them so much
of merey. The pinioned minister who prayed
with and for those who with himself so soon
were shot, hewn and hacked to pieces, is also a
grand feature in the terrible drama.
Hoeiwn.-Abont 8 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, a rencontre took place between Amos Smith
an'd John Riley, in which the latter was killed.
Some dispute had occured between them pre
vious to this time, and iiley had gone into MC
Inni's black smith shop, on Chalmers-street, to
see Smith and settle the matter with him. A
quarrel ensued upon their meeting, during which
Riley, as it appeared from the evidence taken
at the Coroners Inquest, struck at, or hit Smith
with a shoeing-hainnier. Smith, with a shovel
defended himself, and struck Riley a blow upon
the head, from the effects of whiich he died al
most immediately. Smith gave himself up to
the police and was taken to the guard-house.
Coroner Kingman summoned a Jury of Inquest,
who listened to the evidence of witnesses, and
rendered a verdict that the deceased came to
fils death from the blow of a shovel in the hands
of Amos Smith.--Charleson 'andaard.'

a seat in the United States Senate. It is not
our province to speak of the peculiar claims of
any one, but we venture the assertion that, if
South Carolina cannot be faithfully and nobly
represented in the person of Col. Pickens, she
may well mourn the untimely* loss of Judge
Butler, for we think no mai in the State would
approximate nearer this noble statesman than
REnucTiox s Parcs.-The chief alleviation
of the present financial difficulties is to he found
in the fall of prices now going on, and which
must continue until the necessaries of life reach
a proper le\-el of cost. The inflated charges
made for all such articles, for several years past,
have been symptoms of the disease,nuotthe health
of pecuniary affairs, which-has just reached its
crisis. They have compelled persons in our
cities, in great numbers, to incur expenditures
beyond their means; and it has been a hard
struggle with very many, not merely to keep up
appearances, but to subsist in comfort. The con
dition of things will be much more healthy as
these prices go down. To persons in moderate
circumstances, and to the poor, the blessing of at
change in this respect will be incalculable. Re
cent prices have been founded on no permanent
reasons, but were spasmodic and unnattiral, and
the idea ought to be sedulously contemplatedand
insisted upon of a general reduction, to last f.r
beyond -the severity of the present panie.--Boa.
