WEDNXESDAr, Dec. 2.
The Senate met at 12 in., pursuant to adjourn.
The followiing preamble and resolutions were
received fron the House of Representatives,
and were unanimously aduopted:
Whereas, during th'e past year, the people of
South Carolinta have be.,en called upon to mourn
the loss of three of. the most eminent of their
pablic men, it is but futing that this Legislature
shotdd express its owil feelings, and the sense
of the people of the State, in view of this public
bereavement, with which it ht pleased God, in
his inscrutable wisdom, to visit us in the death,
first, of Cheves, atnd then of Butler, and now of
Hamilton. The Comnwealth has experienced
a loss, not so tuch of service as of worth. They
were all advanced in life. For a long time pre
vious to his death, Langdon Cheves htd been
from choice, and the infirmities of advancing
years, entirely removed from the sphere of active
participation in political affairs, but even in his
old age and in his retireneut, the integrity of
his character and the grand proportions of his
massive intellect, retained their blended symine.
try; and, now, as we survey his finished life, it
is dillicult to determine in what light the picture
is presented in its most attractive features,
whether as the able advocate and the incorrupti
ble jndge, or as the statesman of enlarged and
liberal views, who, in his earlier political life,
espoused the cause of the impressed and captive
seaman-in the prime of his manhood rescued
the country from great financial distress, by an
able admtinistration of the a Vrs of the Bank of
the United States, and who, in his old age, 'pro
claimed, trumpet-toingued, the wrongs of the
injured Sotith.(itf Andrewv Pickenis Butler it is
not necessary here to speak. lHe has been too
recently amongst us, and was too fitiuiliarlyv
known to those who honored himi with the high
est olliees in their gif't, to require att this time a
r.eital of his virtues and1 his worth. His recent
intellectual conicts otn the " floor of the Senate
of the United States, and his ardent devotion to
the State, to the South, and to their institutions,
wvill illustrate his ndherence to dutty anduu the
faithful performance of his public trttsts; while
the general warmth of his benevolent nature
will keep ever greeni the affetction of those who1
enjoyed his conlidence and esteem in privatte
life. But while we mourned the loss of thetse
distinguished compatriots, and were preparing.
to wreathe at chatplet for their graves, how ap

ade a speech in the Legislature, upon the Blanks. fo
would afford us pleasure to lay it before our read- ab
Sat once, hut we cannot do so for want of room. lIn er
e course of a few weeks we shall endeavor to tepuba
h it. In spite of speech-making however, it seems
dite clear that our Legislature intends doing nothing
a financial way this session. The majority think
at nion-nacJion and forbearance towards the Blanks
ake.. tfb.-to policy just at thIs juncture.

is one thing however which I was really grieved to
serve. The ten water-oaks planted twenty-fire
ars ago by Col. BLADIN, near his then residence,
a all in a state of rapid decay. These were the
at trees of the kind planted in Columbia. Since
an, long rows in a number of localities have been

tn is, that twenty years mere will find them all per
ing in their places, and that the pileasant air of

a garnish nakedness of aspect, at once uncomfort
le and uninviting to the eye. Against this howev
the Athenian pride and taste of the Columbians

CHARLESTON, December 5, 1857.
Our amusement season is not yet ovieroalthough the
December holidays are about commeneing. The chief
ovelties of the week have been two different Classes
f Musical Entertainments, each drawing their full
ihare of patronage. At the Hibernian Hall, M'llo
Emilia Frezzolini from the Italian Operas of Paris
Ld London, and St. Petersburg, sung before crowded
nd fashionable audiences on the evenings of Tuesday
nad Wedresday. Her voice is a very high soprano,
owerful and well cultivated, and she is regarded here
s anl artiste of high order. Her dress was richly
agnificent, aud her person commanding, but the
ewiapers and critics are sadly at fault in enumera
ing among her other attractions a pretty face, that
icing an exceedingly rare po/session with singers
gnerlly and Italian Prima Donnas especially. She
was assisted by Madamo Amelia Patti Strakoseb,
whose beautiful simple ballads " Coining through the
Rye," and "Within a mile of Edinboro." are always
rresh .. the hearts of a Charleston audience'and al
ays ensuro a rapturous encore, also by Maurice
Rtrakosch, the great Pianist, and Herr Kletzer on the
Violin, a combination of gifted artists. The Troupe -

The Campbell Minstrelslhave been making the spa
:ious Institute Hall nightly resound with noise and
mirth, and filling its commodious galleries with my
riads of grinning sons and daughters of Africa, who
grow boisterous over the counterfeit presentments of
themselves on the stage, while scores of white folks
re making merry below, over the spectacle of strang
gers, "taking off their negroes before their faces."
The Troupe has suffered greatly in the loss of several
of their most valuable and well known performers.
Others however have been added, whose introductory
delineations of the most amusing characters give
promise of these vacancies being in a measure sup
plied. The Brass Band which fiJls up the interludes
is very grand, but entirely too noisy for the limits of
an enclosed apartment, as sundry aching heads in the
crowd of spectators can feelingly testify. If " the
Campbells " will allow a frequent patron to venture a
gentle suggestion, I would take this opportunity of
recommending the chief jester of the concern to re
sume his seissorings, and cut out a few now scraps of
jokes for future use, as the old stalo remnants, to which
they cling so affectionately, have already gone the
rounds of the country papers. If they should come
up your way, perhaps the Adrertiscr could furnish
them with a few accessions, as I have reason to know
that there is a humorist in your sanctum who can
turn "Patience sittingon amonument" into "Lsaught

impromptu pun, retort or song, as occasion may re

The Report of the President of the North Eastern
tail Road Comipany, has just been published. It
states that since the 5th October last, trains have been
running regularly and without accident between this
City and Florence, the .Northern extremity of the
oad. 'The expense of building the Road to Florence,
was $1,0i2b,95; the assets are estimated at $1,0:32
00; the equipment of locomotives and cars, real es
tate aud slaves, $2,O1 5,000 ; the debt of the Company
on bonds, notes and contracts is $1,035,910I. They
are petitioninig the Legislature for the passage of An
Act authorizing the State to guarantee tho bonds of the
Company to the extent of $100,000. For the 9
months ending 1st October, the daily receipts aver
aged $112 50, and from. Nov, 15t to 10th, $40 5.
On the 48th day alter thoa opening of the road, it
earned within four dollars lper dany, enough to cover
its daily expecnses. The Compiany have matured and
adolted at plan for the extinction of its debt, some
what similar to that of our City Council.
" Itunell's .hoJ/ajue " for December, is highly
spoken of by the paress. The success of this work is
qie a feather in our lite'raary cap, and shows that we
have- a slight tinge of romance left in our composi
tion, which tumammou anad 'hard-times " united have
ot been able entirely to exterminate. No oneo who
knows any thing about periodical literature ina this
latitude, could ever be fool eniongh to sulppose, that
either the enterprising publisher or his able co-work
er, have entseros upon so haopeless aun undertskinag,
with the view of Jeriving any considerable pecuniary
profit from their patriotic labors. They deserve anid
arc receiving (so fiar as it goes.) the grateful " r/
done " of their readlers. When will our reading -omn
munity learn and take to heart the lesson that the la
borer in the field of letters, as~ well as in any othser
field, is entitled to a lilting reward for Ale toils and
sacrifices? Our Magazines hiave never before been

He was an honest; unassuming citizen, greatly-be
loved by his neighbours, and a worthy leading mem
ber of the Baptist Church for many successive years.
No man was better prepared to meet his God, and he
sunk quietly to rest, leaning apon the arm of his
aviour. Ho was a standard of morality and truth,
and will long be remembered with esteem by his
neighbors as a virtuous, upright man-who raised
around him for the benefit of his-native District, a
large and estimable family.
The habits of life of this venerable old citizen were
well known to the writer of this brief tribute. Ho
gras uniformly temperate in all tings. fareifty yars:
lie was scrupulously 'exact in the disohlrgd of M1.
Christian duties. During nearly all of that time he
was one of the chief pillars of the old Red Bank
Church in this Distriot; and most truly may it be.
said of him, that lie adorned his'walk by a holy life
and a godly conversation. In his intercourse with
men lib was an example of moderation and kindness,
slow to anger, full of benevolence, and over ready to
forgivo offenees as he hoped jo be forgiven of Heaven.
But the good Christian is gone to his reward at the
right hand of Jesus. Yet long will his virtues remain
behind on earth, as landmarks to guide the younger
members of his Church and community on the true
road to God and His eternal glory.

Bur so far as the deceased is concerned, her husband

_A GOOD COMPARlSON.
The 11e. William Roulatt, a well known Methodist
lergymain, residling at Naples, draws the following
amusing but apt comparison b~etween Dr. N'Ltane's
ee-brated Vermnifuge., prepared by Fleming Bros., of5
P'it.biurgh, P'a., andl a ferret:
-'A Ierre t, when pilaced at the entrance of a rat-bobs,.
enter.s dhe aperture, travels along the passage, seizes
uip,m, the rat, extermimates his existence, and draws
the animal's defunct carcass to the light. And in like
man ner have I found Dr. .lI'Lane's Aanericman 'ersni
f~. to operate upon wonoss, those dreadful and dan
gerous tormentors of children. This remedy, like the
ferret, enters the aperture of the month, travels down
the gullet, hunts round the htomach, lays hold of the
worms, shakes the life out of the reptiles, sweeps clean
their den, and carries their carcasses clear out of the
sytmu. This, at least, has been the effect of the Ver
mifuge upona my children."
A neighbor of Mr. Roulatt, Mr. John Briggs, adlopts
the simuile of the reverend certifier, thus both giving
their most unequivocal approval of this great specinie,
after having witnessed its operation upon their own
children. Let others try it, anod be satihied. ..
