NEW YORK COiR.ESPONDENCE.
Sr. NICHOLAS, NEW Yon, Jan. 14
Mr DEiA COLOEL:-Confined to the Interior of
the St. Nicholas, and cut off from fa ieuds and sight.
seeing by floods of rain, it has occurred to me to in.
dite an epistle to the Edgoyjeld Adrertiaer ! In to
doing,j uld I be presumptuous ? A German proverb,
in grea epute says, " boldly ventured is half won,"
so acting thereupon and without further ceremonies,
I begin-feeling that should these details be not meet
for the public eye, their private circulation among
certain friends, will at least, be not unaccestable.
After a stormy and most villainous passuge by Sea
from Charleston, I am again safe upon the bosom of
mother earth, and so-journing in the marble palace,
whose natne stands above. My first feeling upon
reaching New York was one or great amazement at
the mild and beautiful weather-as clear, soft and
sunny as beneath the loved sky of old Edgefield ; and
so, I am told, it has been all the fall and winter.
'Tis raining at this very moment to be sure, but still
quite warm. Does not this, under present circum.
stances, the pressure in the onay narket and desti.
tution of the poor'. seem like the watchful care of
gentle providence? New York is a 'world of itself,
and truly the most wonderfr place in the world-and
the St. Nicholas is yet another world. To spend a
night and day within its walls is of itself a grand ex
perience! The royal magnificence of this Hotel seems
to increase year by year; and in every appurtenance
for convenience or pleasure, it is certainly unparalleled.
To see the grand dining hall alone, blazing 'rith gas,
crystal and silver, radiant with beautiful and beauti
fully arrayed women and high bred looking men*
animated by the cotnstaut stream of white aproned
and gloved waiters, all enrelsised within walls of msir
rors and pink and silver frescoes, is worth a trip fronr
any part of the-shall I say world or Uniun ? And
the viands rest assured, detract in nowise from tha
picture-morning, noon, era and night they art
spread out in infinite variety and glorious available
ness. But how annoying are some of their regula
tions ! For instauce, when one does'nt eat fish to bi
obliged to sit and flirt with fork and spoon, literall.)
.- .. restitng upon one's oars, till others have consumec
untold quantities. Such rules are positively insult
ing-especially in a free country ! '
The St. Nicholas sems to be the rendezvous o
very distinguished people-in the pairlouirs attd at thi
table, one meets individuals fameus in polities, letters
art and fashion. And here too are to be seen some
nay many, of the most countryfied, backwoods-look
ing and unpresentable specimens of the Anglo-Saxor
race 'tis possible to imagitne. They keep one con
stantly in mind of sights seen at a Western Canm
Meeting ! Last evening. observing the psarlouirs ant
passages unusually thronged, and the pserformers o
a well known band running to and fro with their in
strumenrts, I concluded some tretmendous hero or data
cr or singer or refugee, nothing less than Sumner
Walker, or P'aulding, Fanny Ellaler or liosati, Jenna
Lind or Grise, Kossuth or M~artin Kosta, was ab'ou
to come or go. flreathless with curiosity, andi witi
eyes widle open. I singledl out from amnontg tihe crowd
an unworthy looking individual, whom I judged
might be safely inrterragatedl. I d~d interragarte himu,
and his answer was " a dinner of the hard ware Mler
* chants." Bahb! to hare ones ideas dragged suddenly
down from orations, vivats, grandl arias, &ce., &ce., te
pots, kettles, gridirons and grates.
3My first achievement in sight-seeing (there being
no music) was the Ravels. These have bseon playing~
at Niblo's exquisite theatre the longest and most suc
cessful engagement ever heard of-were they to sta~
in New York fromn January to January agatin, I verily
belive they would never lack a house rammed, crammed
and j.ammedl. Strange how people love nonsense
for these same ltavels prlay nothing but utter non
sense. ]Jut ino, I beg pardon of you, enchantini
lievels, for in thinking of your plays, I forget your
monstrosus and miraculous agility ! The star of thc

Thursday, which is in New York an almost genera]
reception day, anti consequently I met and saw many
sights during the undertaking. Pouring into and
out of every house at which I called was a throng ot
elegantly bedizened gentlemen and ladies. And oi
the latter ! Arrayed in what is hrere called carriage
Costume-pink, blue, green anrd crimson silks, flounced,
fringed, velveted, buttoned, stripedi, streaked and
plaided all at once-such as in our land we never see
even at grand balls. And velvets, sables, ermines,
cashmeres, jewels, laces, flowers, feathers and last,
but bty no maans teust-hoops. Oh the mountainous
and gigantic hoops ! The space over wIch Didk

exceed five minutes, and it seems necessary, or fash

St. Vitus dance, all the time. After "good morning"

EDITOR PRESENTED WITH A BIBIE.-The Ral

"1 Some pious person has presented Squire
Ridgeway, of the Whig, with a beautiful Bible.
The Squire is in a quandary as to whether the
unknown donor intended the gift as a rebuke
for his sinfulness, or a reward for his piety!
There can be no earthly doubt that the gift was
designed us a reward for very great piety, (!)
and as a stimulous to renewed vigor in wrestling

Sfresh lot of line country cured Bacon, which they are
selling very rapidly to our citizens at only a slight
shade abo-ve the Augusta market-barely enough to

efforts to compete with the merchants of Hammburg
-and Augusta should receive the hearty coigmendation
of the trading community, hy bestowing on them a
3generous encouragement whilst they are laboring sc
assidluously for the benefit of our people. They aro

are, as above stated, selling at low figures for cash.

high sense of honor and moral wortm entitle him to
the confidence and patronage of our citizens. Mr.
Do wni, his assistant, is a genitlemnan of high character
and attainments, and will no doubt do himiself credit.
There is no reason why a first class Academy should
not be established in our village. Containing within
itself all thme prerequisits, with a large iind wealthy
IDistrict to sustain it, a High School might be lo
cated here which in point of efficiency would be equal
to s.ny in the State, amnd supereede the necessity of
our boys and young men going abroad to procure
,even a primary education. The temptations to dissi

" Boys will be boys" wherever they are plaeed, and
it is only necessary thait the villagers should bring
their disap~probation to bear upon anything like ini
subordination or riotous conduct, to which all boys
are prone, to suppress it. We feel no hesitancy in
saying that with a fair support from thme country, the
efficient and public-spirited Beard of Trustees will
build up a School which will he the pride of the Dis

the exercises in this Institution will be resumed on the

-SOCIETY AT THE SOUTH.
The society of the South, we regard as in some re
spects superior to that of any part of the world. The I
English are proverbial for their reserve and stateliness t
-the French for their elegance and vivacity, and we T
of the South are a kind of intermediate of the two, r
having the "fortiier in re" of the former, and the e
"eariter in modo" of the latter, beautifully and bar- v
men' usly blended together. This we regard as the
seer t of the fascinating infauence that is exerted by 1
Southern ladies and gentlemen at home and abroad. t
But with all the many advantages that society at the J
South enjoys, an observing eye will not fail to per- c
ceive a want of sincerity pervading the intercourse of I
the sexes, which can be found no where else. Even un- I
der the easy familiarity of Northern society, there ex- I
ist greater confidence than with us. The spirit of
coquetry seems to prevail in our midst as a mania. It
has infused Itself into the various relations of South
ern society, and has become so common, that but lit
tle if any confidence now exist between opposite sexes.
This disease of society is not confined to castes. The
high and the low, the educated and the uneducated,
are alike subject to t. Neither is it limited to one
sex to the exclusion .of the other, or even to the un
married, for some that have assumed the holy vows of
wedlock are voted decidedly fast.

seed of his eternal unhappiness; and she, a gay, bril

boudoir and sleeps calmly and quietly-the measure
of her vanity being full to overflowing. Our young
hero follows up in quick haste his seeming good for
tune, and early declares his enthusiastic love. She,
true to her nature, affects the utmost surprise at his
feeling revelation-she coldly looks upon him, and
with a haughty nod of the head rejects his proffered

with society, turns woman hater, and veeks pleasure

self-love for the passing moment, and this too regard

'Tis woman's whole existence."
We regard the practising of such arts by a lady as
quite a fault, but with all their faults we can but like
them-and will endeavor to overlook this trait of
their character, for the charming creatures cant help
it. But in a man it Is feminine and absolutely dis
honorable, and as such we must condemn it. It must
be regarded as one of the evils of Society, and is,
withoutdoubt, a gre&agback to thedivine institution

crease of population than all the fallacious principles
promulgatedhby Malthus and his deluded followers. We
have no remedy to suggest and must else by wish

We have received a begitiful Pitcher from the Fac

ever seen from China. We understand that it meets
with ready sale. This Factory was established some
time in the year 18S57. We are glad tosee this addi
tional developement of the resources of the State,
ind wish fair the company abundant success.
Our friend Mr. M. who has just given this Pitcher
a very critical examination, suggests that the only
defect that he can discover is that it has inthing in,

We acknowlelge the receipt of an A'ldress dlelivored
before the " Euphemian and Pheclomatheon Literary
Societies of Erskine College " by RIeniAD YEADoNJ,
Esq., the distinguished editor of the "Charleston
Courier," on the subject of " Slavery, and its Federal
itelations." We have read this address with much
pleasure andl profit, and regard it as exceedingly ap
propariate to the times and the occasion, for there is no
subject upon which not only the younig men of the
South but even the old aroso lamentably and ignorant as
that Slavery. Whilst the Northern intellect is concen
tratedl upon this subject, in order to find sonic weak
point of attack, we remain inactive relying utpon the
truth and strength of our cause. Few of our great
men have written upon this important questfinn. It is
true we have many speeches on the subject delivered
in Congress, but they usually appecar ini a perishable
formi. We know of but one book on this subject,
which is a compilation of the pieces written by Chan
cellor Hlanm'in, Goy. H[Axxosal and Dr. Sunross of our
State,' and Prof. Dew of Virginia, styled the "Pro
Slavery Argument." Mr. YEADOS has ably andl sue
cessfully brought forward the Constitutional and is
torical argumnut upon this subject. The address de
serves tobe incorporated with the pieces above referred
to. The whole address is written in an easy and unia
dorned style, bearing -impress of elaborate research
and close logical reasoning; thme exordium and perora
tioni evincing that the author is also well skilled in
the graceful and eloquent use of language. We com
mend it to the careful perusal of all who may be so
fortunate as to secure a copy.

A DESPERAt~TE But'RLAR.-Last evening, about
ten o'clock, (says the Charleston Mr-curmy of thet
21st,) a black fellow was discovered by a German
girl upon the premises of Mr. Schiroder, opposite
the Mills House, in the act of rubbing a atrunk.
The girl raised the alnrim and attempted to seize
the fellow, who gave her an tugly cut with a
knife, and attacked the mother-in-law of Mr.
Scroder who ran to the assistance of the girl
dealing her a very severe stab in the shoulder.
The fellow then leaped from the window, but
was pursued by Mr. Schroder, jtunior, who laid
hold upon him, but was obliged to loose him,
from the desperate manner in which the fellow
ut him about the face. The rascal was finally
secured and lodged in the Guard House byofficer
Hicks, who, with his usual promptitude, came to
the scne of action
We have road attentively the papers from the Cap
tol, hoping that we might find something upon which
a post our readers-they are almost devoid of news
matter. The death of Senator Rusic has been an.
iounced in the Senate and the House-appropriate
ulogies were delivered, amongst them in the House
ras that of the Hon. L. M. KrTr, of this State.

We observe in most of our exchanges the announce.
nent of a newly written life of Arnox Bran, by J.
?ARTox author of "Humorous Poetry of the English
rWinguage," " Lire of Horace Greely " &c. We have
Llways read with great avidity every thing connected
rith this remarkable man. The conflicting notices of
he above work, coupled with the hope that we may
ind something in it to extenuate the faults of this
nan of genius, has quickened our desire to secure
md peruse it. We regard the biography of Bunn a.s a
Ine subject for the student of character, possessing
nany qualities to excite our admiration, and not a
low that we must unhesitatingly condemn. His char
toter is a strange parodox. Some regard his reputa
ion for gallantry as giving more interest to his life
;han his varied successes as soldier, lawyer, or states
man. The same idea is often expressed concerning
Lon Bnox, but to us their numerous intrigues seem
is the spots upon the Sun, which serve by the great
,ontrast to exhibit in still stronger light, their more
manly achievements. Bunn's scheme of Establishing
v Western Empire, to say the least of it, was a splen
lid dream and must be regarded as ewinating from a
master intellect. We like Buna for his constant and
anceasing love for his daughter. In his last hours he
ay helpless gazing upon her beautiful portrait with
yes moistened with the tears of affection; as strong
to was his love for her, this peerless lady reciprocated
it to the fullest extent. In one of the clauses of her
will she exhibits that posthumous modesty, that must
Bver secure the admiration of all who duly appreciate
this most fascinating characteristic of her sex. May

Mn. ED-ron-Dea'r Sir: By a letter received from
Fn., to a female friendn in Beach Islanud a few days.
since. and that letter fromi a teether, we learn of the
death of JOI[N TAVELLE, who emigrated to that
state about one year since, in the 23rd year of his
age, fronm a shot fired by an Inditan in the lig Cypreso'
near one of their towns.
This young mant enrolled himself in Capt. Wm.
Cone's Company of Mounted Volunteers on the 23d
July last, anti had been engaged in active service up
to thme time he received the fatal shot. Ie was some
distance in advanice of his comrades, when the report
of a rifle was heard, and on nearing the spot, they
found poor TAVyML~ra mortally wounded. Hie expired
in a few minutes, and his last word and breath was
Every mtail which arrived from the seat of war, his
mother, Mrs. T., was a regular enquirer at the P'ost
Olice, anxiously expecting a letter from herson. At
length a letter arrives-the anxious mother opens it,
and learns from Capt Cone the death of her darlitng
boy! What feeling was this letter calculate to excite
in the breast of a fond and affectionate mother !
Death has terrors wheui attended by the soothing
hand of a mother, surrounded by all that the heart
could wish, but how much more terrible is death amidst
the battle shock,'- when the last cry that greets the
ieparting spirit is the shout of his victorious comrades.
This may some what soothe his agony, but then it is
that the memory of the dying youth will turn to his
nother's house, and the comforts of his boyhood's
koae, hut all in vain.
The alacrity and cheerfulness with which he per
ormed the ditties of a soldier, gained for him the con
idenice of his cotmrades, and the esteem and commen
hations of' his oflicers.
The deceased has been known to the writer from his
faucy, and his kind heart, mild temaper, and amiable
lisposition, won for him the regard and love of all
sho knew hint. But lie is gone!-gone to exchanige
ho earthly vetmtnents for the robe of immortality.
'Let thte mild flowers grow, and thiemocking birdsitig,
Wh'ere the youth sleeps, in the land of hisadoption;

Ma. EDITOR:-Wo do ni set up to be a censor of
public morals, nor to make an unnecessary parade
ibout small matters, but there are somo irregularities
in the administration of our town affairs which hould
je corrocted. On Saturday nights gangs of negroos
anl be seen congregated together conducting them
!elves in a most boisterous and disorderly manner, evi
iently too under the influence of liquor. Thu ques
tion arises where do they get liquor and why are they
idlowed to collect in such numbers? Our newly elec
ted council Is composed of gentlemen of energy and
intelligence, and we sincerely hope that they will keep
on the "que rire " and correct the evil, for unless
they do, it will do away with the possibility of con
trolling our negroes and preserving order.
MELANCIOLY DEATH OF A MisEn.-A few
weeks since, a Spanish gentleman of high con
nections, named Stephen Despratt, died in Lon
don, under circumstances of a most extraordi
nary nature. Although in the possession ol
wealth to the amount of $150,000 he was so
penurious that he denied himself the common
necessaries of life, and finally carried his fright
ful avarice to such an extent that his landlady
was compelled to call in medical advice in con
sequence of his being discovered in an insensi
ble and exhausted condition in his apartments,
the result of actual starvation. On a post mer
tem examination, the stomach was found empty,
and in a withered condition. His apartments
exhibited a most extraordiney collection of mul
titudinous trash, picked up by the wretched old
miser for years past.

Mrs. MARTHA C. STEVENS, in the fiftieth year o
Mrs. STvNcs had been for nany years confined t
her bed, yet she submitted to the chastening rod witl
cheerfulness, and bore her afflictions with patience t4
the end. She was not a member of the church, bu
had professed faith in the Lord Jesus, long before th
close of her earthly pilgrimage, and would have uni
ted with the Baptist Church but for physical inabilit;
to attend at the Sanctuary of our Lord and Master.
She was an affectionate and doting mother; a go<
wife: and as neighbor, was kind and charitable; an
her death was deeply deplored by all who knew he,
She leaves many relations and friends to mourn thei
Dir.D, on the 15th of December, 1857, at the resi
deuce of her husband, Mr. BExrr Ho.HLLAiD, Mrs
ELIZABETH T. A. HOLLAND, daughter of Benj
and Martha C. Stevens, in the 31st year of her age.
Scarcely had the tears of mourning been wiped from
the weeping eyes of the family, for a kind mothr
err death again invaded the Sanctuary and took from
their ranks a sister, a wife, a mother.
Mrs. HoLLANr united with the Baptist Church a
Little Stevens' Creek when 14years of age, and by i
well-ordered life and Godly conversation adorned t,
her death the profession she then made. In all tb
relations of life she was kind, dutiful and obliging.
She leaves an affectionate husband and several chit
dren, together with numerous friends andi relations t
mourn their sad bereavements; and whilst we deepl:
synpathize with them In their loss, we have ever;
evidence to hope she inherits a blessed immortalit;
beyond the grave.
DIED, on the 10th inst., at the residence of her son
Mrs. MARGARET THRAILKILL, relict of Mr. Job:
Thrailkill, aged about seventy years.
She was a native of North Carolina, but for mana
years'a resident of this District. She embraced re
ligion many years ago, under the labours of Rev
Carson Howell, and united with the Bethel Baptis
Church, of which she remained a worthy and consis
tant member until her death, bearing the testimonl
that she had a good hope-that hope that mal:eth nol

botbpure and steadfast.
