From the South Carolinian
THE 30'JrR CAROLINA COLLEGE.
The following, was asldessed to the Governor
by one of the Alaunni of the South Carulina
Uollege, who has traveled on the Continent or
Europe, as an offering lor the benefit of his loved
ama Mater. It contains the substance of a pre
vious conversation on the subject of College re
form. We have obtained it for our columns, in
order that it may be more generally virculatod:
b His Eccelleney R. F. I. Allston.
DEAR SIR: In compliance with your request,
I have hastily thrown togeth-r my views un the
college reformu, atl such as they are, I respect
fully submit thetm for your consideration.
I repeat what I said to you in conversations
-it matters iittle what name we give the insti
tution, whether eolleg e or university, providei
there be a proper arranug.'ment of discepline an'
In providing fur the bccess of an institution
of learning, two things mintity are to be consi.
ered : first, the provisi.>ns made fbr the discipline
and government of its members; secondly, the
methods of instruction pursued therein, or the
appliances for the aeg-isition of knowledge.
It is chiefly in reference to the former, I think,
that our Coilege has failed to develope the grand
results, which, from its fine endowments, might
reasonably have been expected from it. It has
been found wanting in the very element, which,
above all things, constituted good govern ment.
I mean a community of feeling and of purpose
between the governors and the goverued; be
tween the professors and the students. These
seem to have exhibited towards each other a coun
atatnt anitagonism. Little impressed by their
mutual obligations to promote each other's wvel
fare, they have entertained toward each other
feelings of indifference and independence, and
for nearly forty years have clashed in their con
duet, to their mutual inijury, and to the great
detriment of the institution of which they have
been constituent parts. It needs no philosiophic
pen to predict that no change for the better-can
occur in future, uniless some positive reform,
new elements of discipline shall be introdneed.
In is a wrell established principle in govern
ment, whether as applied to small bodies or large
ones, that there utust be one power to majke laws
-aseprate one" to judge them-and another'
to superintend their execution. Among . a peo
pie accustomed to political liberty, no govern
mnent can be successful without such a distribu
tion of power. And the principle is as applica
Lie to the College as to the State. A large
number of the ofienes committed within the
College walls have personal concern with some
one or other of the Faculty ;and we could as
soon expect a commeunity 01 citizens to be sati
fiejd with the adiminia-trationi of justice, which
authorirzeS the otfenedI to sit in judg:nent over
the offender, as t" expoet a satisfactory adminis
tration of the Celiege laws when the' Professor
is allowed t-o go reeking from the scene of per
sonal insi.tt. tos judge and pass sentence upon the
etudent who ha3 offende-d him. Such an admin
intration is against thuecourae of nature and of
reason, tand can never succeed, though npplied
under the mnsst farr.rable circumstances. It is
one of the great priniciples of go)veruinet nd
of public libe-rtv. that ant impartial tribunal msust
stand between 'the injured and the acised-and
it is an-ather treat principe-, that the law shoinkd
be execu'-d in a p iSSiiesa'5 spirit, according to
the~ rul:-s of a mcercifutl iustice.
Tho flrir thing, then, to lbe sought afoer inl

whether he- be called P'rssident, Chancellor,
Proctor or Rector, whoise..duty it shall he, in con
junction with the Faculty, to have an eve to the
conduet and diliigence of the students, anid, wh.,
removed as far as posssile from all temnptations

iege laws, &c., in which it is often necessary to
intvastigate and dec~ide juicially and impartially.
In the .iecondi phic:, then, there should be a

the headl of it, ha~via. ri'.y G Iined powers,

tion to law is worth mnor to the yonug moen iu
a Rtepublicanr Goo-ruament, than all the vanssry
notions oft genttlemantily conduettt they cani possi
bly acquire in the so-called schoosls of honor.
But true gsentlemnlny condutct is ovter tand be
yond the law. It is the offs-pring of a .ative
getnerosity of character, which th-. law can haild
out and perfect, hut can nover destroy. Besidhes,
young mnu when they comne forward inito lf,
are comparlled tto obey the lawa of their coutntry,
and to ob-erye the forms and jutdgmtensts of o':r

than that to whichi they would be sutbjected by
the college courts?

Take, then. some promsinent and experienced
member of the bar (at Coslumbia,) give him a
salary of eight hundred or a thouisand dlollars,
and requeire'him to hold court in College one or
two days every week, to try all offences that may
be brsught before him by the officers of the
College, or by the studonts themselves. Nothing,
in my judgment, would be better calculated to
a..e..'e ord= and discipline in the College than'
such a court. Its decisions would be acquiesced
iii by the students, because it would be an inde
pendent tribunal, standing impartially between
them and the Faculty, and the professors would
find themselves thereby relieved from the unnat
nral and unpleasant situation of judging in their
own cause, which is so often the source of their
.Wad is said to have introduced a dis
cipline something like this, in his Academy at
Willington, Abbeville District, at which were
congregated from 180 to 200 students from eve
r part of the State ; and in many of the Ger
ntian Universities, especially that of Berlin, hav
ing upwards of 2,000 students, and 150 profes
sors and teachers, this court has existed with
the happiest results.
Here, then, would be in the College the three
necessary elements of a good government-the
trustees acting as a legislative body; the judge
as the judiciary, and the presiding officer as the
executive. Under such an organization, I ven
ture to predict the course of the College would
l)e smoothly onward, and the additional expense
could be more than twice repaid every year of
the existence of the institution.
The next point to be considered, is a reorgani
zation of the literary department of the College.
in my own opinion, more would be done for the
success of college instruction by the establish
ment of a few high academies in the State for
the prf paration of young men, than by any
other ueans which can, at present, be adopted.
Still, some changes may be introduced in the
-:iege curricuhun that inight better adapt it to
the existing state of things among us.
1 ca:.iot concur in the opinion of some, that
students should be required to take only three
branches, and to choose entirely for themselves.
A plan of study should be prescribed, and de
grees conferred as a reward of merit and dis
Unction. This I take to be absolutely necessa
rr as a spur to the ambition of the young, and
as the only vay of securing a proper standard
of scholarship. It is unnecessary to resort to
the inuuastic degrees still retained in the conti
ental universities, such as Doctor of Divinity,
Doctor of Law, Doctor of Medicine and Doctor
-f Philosophy. This would be unsuited to the
state of things among us; but may not some
thing like the following be adopted with suc
Require each student upon entering College
to taka: fvee branches, two of which-fbr in

and the o'her three be chosen by himself. But,

arranged, as conveniently as possible, to suit the
variou. callings in life, to which shall be attach

1. Should add a Law Professorsmp. but more
to serve the purposes of a genera l'ed ucation
than with a viewv to professional ends. In addi
tion to the above, students should be allowed,
if they choose, to take additional branches; but
on finishing either of the above courses, which
can be .basily arranged for a form of four years,
they should be entitled to the Baccalaureate de
gre'e of the College. They, however, who may
adopt the first plan named-i. e., pursue the
studies of their choice afler the two prescribed
hv law-should not be entitled to the College
dgrees, but simply to a certificate of proficiency.
2. The instruction should continue to be dia
lectical and not altogether by prelections, as .in
3. The professors should be allowed a small
fixed salary of $1,000 or $1,200, with the privi
legeof charving pupils who take their branches
asmuchs 10, or less if they choose. In thus
proportioning the pay of the professor, to somei
extent, to his diligence, ability and learning,
his be-r etioris will be secured, and there wiil
~e establishecd between himself and the studeim
a tie of friendship, which would greatly assist
in the goivernment of the institution.
4. Ia addition to the regular professors, there
should be licensed teachers, who may give in
strcton in the College. .A ny young man who
may obtain p-rmuission from the Trustees for
teaching and lecturing in the college, should be
allowed a smnail salary of $500 or $600, with
the right to char-ge pupils whio may attend his
instrucohn fronm $1 to $10 each..This will openi
a field of liteary labor -to the young man of
talent in the State. and will do more for the
cause of learning than any reformn which is like
v to be made. It will form among its a class
6 literary nmen, frotm whom the College may
alway., lhe supplied with able professors.
5. Er. h regular professor should be required,
in the co(urse of the academic year, to deliver
mtlyl public lectures, otn some subject in his
dearIient, and the same privilege should be
exenedJ to the private teachers.
6. A stanidard of galiitication for admission
into' the CoXllege should unquestionahly be estab
1ibed, amnd the age oif seventeen fixed for the
time of aLdmission. The object of the institu
tion is to elevate tlie standard of scholarship.
Ti e-tf--et this. students shouldl have ampl: re
partioun beibre gaining admittance into it. Had
we the State academies above alluded to, gradu
mttionm in them would be a sufficient passp~ort for
acninssioni into the College; but in the absence
of these, an examination~ test is the only way to

MR. KEESE COLLECTING.
A member of our Firm is at this time out collecting
the dues of the Alcertiser Offiec. No one, we fool
assured, will turn from him without a prompt res
ponse to his call for funds. Our claims are many,and
singly very small; but, all together, they will make
up a pretty um,-a sum that will enable us not only
to pay our debts, but to place our paper upon a higbor
ground of progress than we have yet ventured to
assume. While our many friends throughout the
District are receiving the rich reward of their fine
crops, they will surely remember the printer's due,
and act accordingly upon seeing our friend and aso

TIIE BATES LAND.
Persons wishing a home in a healthy region of
country where the lands are productive would do well
to examine the advertisemont in reference to this
largo territory of land, which has been divided into
tracts to suit purchasers. The writer of this para
graph has soon a portion of these farms, and there

any one wishing to make a good investment.
We publish this week a very sensible artieo on the
South Carolina College, and ask for it a careful peru
sal. It first appeared nearly a month since in the
South Carounian. We reproduce it now, as contain
ing hints-of real importance in the existing condition
of College affairs. The opinion appears to be gaining
ground, that reform.and improvement are necessary
to'the proper success of our State Institution. But
reform of what kind ? improvement to what extent ?
are the questions of difficulty that remain to b
tlig-ino e per -
nent or more explicit than the communication we
copy. Happening to know it~s author we can eonf..
dently'commend his views on this subject to general
attention. They are the views of one who not only
has the real good of the College deeply at heart, but
who is well qualified by his talents and informnation'to
pronounceo an opinion in the premises.
A C5IEAP AND GOOD PAPER.
Any one wishing to subscribe to a good paper
Southern in politics and principles, and a largo well
tilled journal-would do well to send on their names..
with one dollar to the Seie Yourk Day Book, prlior to
the first January next. The Editor says:
" The prie of the weekly Day Book has been put
down, to all who subscrihe beliore the first of January
next, to $1 00 a year. This is pretty cheap, but as'
our object is toi put a Dema~eratie p'aper into the handls

FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.
GIsAvITEI., S. C. November, 21, 1857.
Mn. Enrroun:-A3 I have just come from the "up
runtry'' to this Manufacturing Town, it is hoped
lhat a "brief-mention" of matters and things that
caeo under my observation or of which I heard, will
not prove altogether void of interest to the readers of
the Adt-crtier. A very singular homicide occurred,
the other ay, a few niles above WValballa, in Pickens
District. Two men, under the infiuence of liquor,
were seated by the way-side playing cards. " On sud
den heat and quarrel," the two drunken gamblers.
commenced fighting as they srat. At last, one of
them (the names arc not .-emembiered) seizing the
other by the hair and pullhg his head over to one
side dealt a blow with the fi't upon his neck. Instant
reath was the result, and i was supposed that the
nman's neck was broken.
The corn erop in Pickens aund Anaderson is excel
lnt, and it is "elling at fity cents a bushel whenj de
liveed. Flour, 1,cr barrel, fromu four dollars and a
half to six. Bacon from eghteen to twenty cents a
pound. (Good bnceon, howver, can lhe bought in I
Augusta at founrtcen cents.)
During the last four or fit years. the people about
Ableville village have bee, building, painting anal
newmod,'elinag thecir houses a most wonderful ana
ner. The " Marshall Ilnae" almost rivals, and
somewhat resemubis 'rn Chirleston Hlotul. The new
Graite Range. und the n Cort House with itsi
cli.dl colnumn.: wounld lbe auonamentl to any " pub. i
ic sqinare." I saw hands anerk on cuiverts fo'r tihe
more effectual drainage of ti,. qjuare anutdie streets.
At Cokesbury, I saw the "inwaonie Institute" for1
young ladies. This handermi edifice ca~et thirteen
thusand fiv-e hundred dolkr. ($l.3,500.) Durninge
the presenit yeiar, bet' :en sorory anid eighty paupils j
have been in attendance; a sti greater number isy
expected next. year.
Capt. L.. iteyuolds, of White aill', hams some of theo
fnest stock I have seen in a lot time, Hie showedn
me a mutle, only nineteen monthmold, which is nearly g
ifteen banids high. Accordieg i menisurenment thisv
mammoth colt has yet a foot toroiw ! The Captain ec
speaks of taking his big mule de'n to the StaL Fair h
ne-.t fall, and if he should conale to (10 so, it is as t
god for a cuap as a -~ thrip is fo.; ginger-cake." J
I visited bous's Gold Mine-and was gratified 1
with all that I samw and heard. me geretleomanly amndt
intelligent Engineer s t the mill informed mec that
Mr. Donsx got fifteen hundred dars worth of gold a
out of his wine last week. A sy handsome busi- p
ness these not hardh, but shin-p'ter times. o
The planters in Abbevillo aroolding back their B
cotton upon the ground that thegures on this aide H
of the hwny deep do not at all rrespond with the as
price in Liverpool. This, I fuinwill prove to have di
been bad policy. .di
As I appmroached' Edgefield Vike, the drapery of S<
the forest reminded me that I r crorssing the line Ie
wheh separates thu upper from tiow country. And b h
I can say, in the sincerity of my-art, that I heard
the autumn winds sighing througie long-leaf inies C<
not without emotion. thi
Hamburg still maintains its reation as a first- Pr
rate cotton Market. There are nuo many stores in mn
this plae at present, as in formdmes. But those eh
Mrchants, who hars renmined, mindoubrtedly sel- en
ling on reasonable terms and doi well. I stopped
at the "' Carolina Hotel" kept by .LYoX, formerly
of Edgefield Village. If the we traveller wantsst
good fare, kind attention and innate charges, let
him go to the Carolina Hotel in )burg. e
It is a pleasure to transact busim with such men an
as reside in Augusta, Georgia. TIMerchants there eru
have on hand, fine assortmients ofds, and judging dre
from appearances, I would ay.t these "panic enl
times" have af'ected their business ' in t very slight me
degree. I never knew till the othay that Augusta cal
had been made a Port of Entry, anat the people of ing
that pleasant and flourishing Cityier have or are So,
to have a Custom Htouse. Su,
From Hamburg I, went down i Beech Island. Ca:
here are some peculiarities abohis part of the Hei
oun try. It lies in a curve of tiavannah river, Gri
tua isalmost cut off fronithe main i on the East by and
orse and Hollow Creeks; It is ier a peniinaula tur
s so thickly settled -a to resemble a Townm Thi
ionsequence is, there are more roads there than yet
!ould "shake a stick at" in a week. Some one ha
vittily remarked that this section of country ought ti
>o called Road Island. The courtesy and hospitality o
be good people in Beach Island have left a most fa4
forable impression upon my mind. Long nit/ thse
I stopped a short time at Kaolin the new Villag
iituated about one nil a half miles South of Bath
Ilaolin is the Chineese term for the clay of whiel
.rockery ware is made, and this is the name givei
:o this new manufacturing Town. Mr. FARn.in
'he proprietor, found out thatkaulin abounded in thi
ricinity of Bath by mere accident. He was connectei
ith a crockery factory in Vermont, and a Dentist o
1hamburg having sent him some of thu clay fur mak
ing artificial teeth, he was delighted to find that i
was the very thing he needed. (Heretofore the Com
banies in the United States have been under the ne
cessity of importing their kaolin, or clay, from Eu
rope.) Mr. F. has on hand a quantity of beautifu
ware,.somie of which is transparent. Kaolin is dew
tined to become one of the most important manurac
turing Towns in the United States. The material i
abundant, and of the best quality, fuel is plentiful au,
cheap, and the fiancial hurricane his wafted a num
ber of the very best of workmen 40 help along wit
this new enterprise. I feel grateful to Mr. FAnA
for his kindness and politeness.
Graniteville is remarkable for its thrift, energy an
animation ; it seems to be the very impersonation c
miethod mNd comfort. The neat cottages, the flowe
garden with its beautiful shrubbery and fountain
playing in front of the Factory buildings, the prett
streets, the overshadowing peaks of sand and kaolin,
all-these things are admirable, and well worthy c
mention. I have the pleasure of announeing the in
tereating fact, that, in Graniteville I procured nin
new subscribers to the "Adrertiser," all but one pay
ing in advance! The people of this far-famed Tow
have my best wishes and kind remembrance.
But this scrawl is already too lengthy. I ma
write agai from some other point in the Dlstriet.
Sincerely Yours, E. K.
For the Advertiser.
Ma. EDITOR:-I notice in the last Advertier an at
tiele signed, "A TAx PAYER," who wishes to kno'
if the former Treasurer of the Board of Commissiou
ers of the Poor did not deduct.his commissions froi
the superabundant amount transfered to the preser
Treasurer, and insinuates that the present Treasure
has no right to a per cent for receiving. In reply,
admit that he deducted 2. per cent for receiving fror
the Treasurer preceding him, but nothing for th
Judging from their Reports, my predecessors wer
of the opinion that they were legally allowed 2j pc
cent, on any and all the money placed in their hand
to be disbursed for the benefit of the District, or m
least the Poor of the District, and 21 for the disburs<
ment. I have been governed by the precedence whic
they established, and if it is wrong, I am of cours
willing to refund the amount in question, and,
right, (and I have reason to believe that it is,) "TA
PAycn" is safe and no harm done.
In regard to the difference in the result of the a
sessment of 10 and 20 per cent in the General Tax,
have only to say that if the amount given me by tli
Tax Collector as the aggregate of the General Ta
collected by him be true, there has been no mistake i
our calculation, I ate quite confident.

Wednesday's Programme wound up with two Balls
in the evening, which are spoken of by those who at
tended them as "recherche" affairs in their way.
The Cadets and their belles, (as is always the case
when they meet.) spent their time delightfully in the
i merry mazes of the dance and promenade, and report
says that more than one sctt of confiding hearts were
lost amid its windings anit revolutions.
l The forenoon of Wednesday was also dedicated to
f the Annual Commencement of the Citadel Acadeny.
- Between 10 and II o'clock a largo and imposing pro.
t cession was formed at the Institution, and marched to
the Military Hall, where a fashionable assemblage of
- both sexes awaited the opening of the exercise& of
this always very popular occasion.
I The space to which I am entitled in your columni
- must necessarily exclude any thing like detailed
- notices of these performances. The efforts of thc
I young Cadets were rewarded with liberal exprossioni
1 of admiration from all quarters of the spacious Hall,
- and the Oration of Capt. Magill, (one of the earliesi
graduates of the Institution) before the Alumni,
i though delivered at a late hour, and after the protrac.
ted exercises of the morning, was warmly appreciated
1 by those who had the privilege of hearing it, notwith
f standing the noise and confusion which always pre.
r vails among audiences on such occasions.
3 Thursday, (Thanksgiving Day,) was observed as a
r general holiday. The Banks suspended operations
- many of the stores were closed, the ladies went tc
f Church, the gentlemen to their various innoconi
amusements, and the loafers to the grog-shops and bil.
This is the first day of the Regatta, and while I
write, multitudes of pleasure-seekers are wending theii
way to the scone of the expected contest, where many
anxious competitors are awaiting with buoyant hearts
the result of their preparations for the great race

t and ending at'the New Bridge. To-morrow being ti

I The arrival of so many of our country friends
2 among whom, the Merchants and men of business arc
0 fairly represented, has given a brisk impetus to tradi
and our streets are wearing a business-like, as welt
0 as a lively and gay aspect. The ladies are out daily

t brilliancy of their rich costumes.
