WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1858.
RULES THAT MUST IN FUTURE BE OBSERVED.
All advertisements from this date, not amounting to
more than $10, must be paid for in advance.
Merchants and others advertising by the year, will
be required to settle every six months.
No paper will be sent out of the District unless paid
for in advance.
All letters on business connected with the Office, to
receIve prompt atteition, must be addressed to the
I Edgefleld Adrertiser."
To these rules we will rigidly adhere. Therefore,
tako notice and act accordingly.
We ask attention to the articles of " PINCKNEY,"
and of " S," on the first page of this number.
pZSeveral editorial items, comlluications and
advertisements have been crowded out this week.
They will receive attention next week.
OUR LATE LOCUM-TENENS.
Our best thanks ire tendered to our friend, M. W.
GAa-r, Esq., for the handsome and efficient manner
in which be has filled the chair editorial for us during
tho past two weeks. We hope at no distant day to
soo him adding the influence of his graceful and for.
cible pen, permanently, to the 'press-gang' of South
Carulina. It would be, for him, but an agreeable ad
ditlion to the duties of his prufession, and, for his many
friends, a matter of sincere congratulation.
The Corner Stone of the Catholic Church will be
laid to.diy (Wedue-day) at II o'clock, A. M., by Tery
Rev. Dr. Lvscu, of Charleston. An appropriate dis
course will be delivered on the occnsiou.
We understand the ceremony is one of much solem
nity and interect. The l.everend Divine, who ottici
ates onl the occasion, has the reputation of being one
of the strongest men in his Church, ut least in the
South,-and thos who attend will dontltless hear
sotiething instructive and edifying.
SI.LE OF THE BURTON NEGItOES.
See the atdverticsment of thiu sale. Thu lot of
slaves i., it choice one; uild, as the leg:.!ees are all
minors, fair lirgaies m:iy be expected ; and, what is
more. good lug indulgence may he reckoned upon
w' suppose. The ruling prices or negro property are
uw-iihan-get hv the timies. In truth, the demand for
l!av- labor is so largely on the increatse that no di
ninution in prices cal be lookedl for, except in acci
dental enses. Oi the contrary, it is probable thati
prices will advance, much higher than at present,
within the next two years.
While on the subject, we mnay mention that at a sale
in this iiiinedliate vicinity, not aweek ago, a lot of 17
slaves sold at tin average price of $8G6,76. Of these,
two were nearly 50 years old, and six or seven under
eight years. Two yountg women without children
sold for $2,565, onie bringing $1,350, the other $1,215.
Boys and men sold at from $1,200 to $1,400. Three
of thtesochrought an aggregate price of $3,810.
The wet term has prevailed for the past month or
two, and our farmers were never more backwardl in
their operations. Almuannes to the contrary notwith
standing, we have had little tsr no winter duri'ng the
witer mionths. So it is very pirobable the old tyrant,
with his icicle crown, will assort his right to reign
through at least a pairt of the vernal quarter. AndI

.As yet, the oat crop is not half sown, lBut little
stubble land is hroken up. Gardlens are scarcely be

tardy in the extrenme. Bumt a had beginnin'g often
makes a goodi eniinig. Let not the husabanmn lie

verified in agricultuiral itatters. lie not in a hurry'

TWO VALUA ISLE WORKJS.
Mr. JosuicA Novies, travelling Agent, has for sile
a few very valuable looks, and. prominient iamong
them is "Fleetwoiod's Life of Christ" and "'The lie
ligious Deniminationts in the United States." Th~ese
two excellent volumies we have just given a hurried
examination, bttt cheerfully say thatL we are well
pleased with them. The " Life of Christ"' is ia mans
sivo work, embracing a large amuount of the most
useful and iinteresting reading. It is hiandacumely
gotten up, and is well spoken of by every one who
has given it a puerusal. 'rho other volume, "The1
it.ligious Denoimitions in the United States."' is a
large octavo, containing lmore thiin a thousand pages,
and quite a number of flue engravings. It is just
the hook that the peole want, and will commend
itself wherever known. I
These volumes are for sale by Mr. Novas and his

Whoever says the times are tough, says the truth.
liut lie whio goes further, iind pronomunces thema insur

'lition oif the miercantile piurt of thec community,-(and
it is doubtless trying in the extreme)-the great bulk
of our Southerin population, the tfariing anid planting
intereat, is ini a healthy andl safe condition. Butt a
-um:il proportion of our last cotton crop has yet b'een
sold. Throtughoutt the cotton States this iissertion
hbolds true. In South Carolina, fromn all accounts, it
is uniquiestiounbly so. To conie nearer yet to our p'ar
tieulasr h'ome, it is certainly true of .igeticld District.
A gentleman of considerable infortuntiont and indis
putable shrewdness remarkedl to us but yesterday,
that he suppo.sed there was yet un-soldl cottonu anmongst
us to the value of at least $200t,000t. Without ex
amininzg closely his opinion, we nre inclined to thiink
his estimate ini the piromiss ot very wide of the mark,
Now, suppse this eotton converted itti ensh during

payment of debts. Imagine the dotible, triple, qiuad
ruple application of this money to the relef of credi
tors in the various ramtifications of trade. A pays B;
-B with the samne money pays C;--C py D;--and
so on to the end of the chapter. What must he the
result? The $::00,000 would sit once liiquiidate one
million of dollars of indebtedness. The diffictulties
of the hotur would be swepit away "like clouds beforec
a Iiiscaty gale." Good, iund easy, and hapspy, and
joyful times, would comeo with the pleasant breezes of
the approachinig Spring. The 'blues' would vanish
from the firesides of our merchants and men of busi
ness. The landl wotuld rmile with the summer Crops
again ; andi by the returnt of the next harvest, all would
be found latughing at the panic'of '57 uind '58.
Farmers and Planters ! it is yours to bring about
this happy result ! Sell your cotton ! Circulate your '
means! IHelp the weak dependents upon your wealth ! I
Eschew avarice! Be Christian philanthropists in a
practise ! Meet the crisis with the generosity and I!
promptness common to your noble pursuit, and des- E
pite the hopes of gangrened misers and money-lenders, I
all will be well.

A hurried business visit to the metropolis of South
'arolina enables us to indite the following brief notes
1. That Charleston is one of the most rolid, sombre,
nd respectable, of American cities, has been the
emark of more than one sagacious traveller from
ountries beyond the seas. It is as true of her now
s at any former day. She is "solid" in her real
state valuation - "solid" in her commercial opera
ions; "solid" Wher aims and expectations; and
'solid" in her ways and means. She is "respecta
le" in her tone of sentiment, social and political;
'respectable" in her inen and measures; and "r
pectable" in the reminiscences of her ancient worth.
Ve have interlarded our commendation with the
rord "sombre," which surely needs no explanatory
ddeadumn to any one who has ever seen her antiqua
ed wooden tenements and dingy blocks of brick and
2. And at Charleston, in the Institue Hall, on the
tight of the 22nd ult., from a central seat, amid a
ttinerous and brilliant company of delighted listen
rs, we hal the pleasure of hIaring Thalberg;
DHALBER, the foster-son of the Muses, the superior
if Liszts, the father of mighty Fantasies, the des
ot of Demisemiquavers; an angel of peace in his
xalted melodies, a demon of excitement in his tor
andos of musical rage. Such, and 'such-like,' are
he phrases of laudation showered upon the head of
his celebrated master of music, who is now moving
ud making money amongst us. Of course the style
of this praise is obnoxious to the charge of bighfalu
enism. But the meaning of it all is nothing more,
hUnth at Sigistund Thalberg's comuand of the piano,
tnd his control and direction of its mechanical pe
'uliarities, haIve reached a degree of excellenco which
uian fangers and human tanste have never before
ueen known to aehieve. As to the real pleasure af.
rorded by his instrunentalization, we doubt if ten
n a hundred iand their expectations equalled. His
mxecution is marvellous, but not inspiring. His music
,s beautiful, but not entrancing. And this may be
readily accounted for without disparaging either his
renius or his skill. The truth is, the piano is not the
nstrument with which to reach and overwhelm the
soul. After all is done with it that can be done, It
itands before us (. an istr'uinant. We see art, art,
rt, in itE intonations, front beginning to end. Its
omin atinas of sound may become pleasing or sur
prising, suothing or startling, according to the mood
ur taste of the paerformer. Yet it can never express
the impulplee of true genius to the full. Indeed its
availability to this end appears sadly contracted,
whea coinpared with the power and beauty, the haIr
mony and richness, of various instruments uniteal.

,periority in tone, of both the violin and the horn ;
and the piano must lae regarded a second or third
rate instrument even in the hands of a Thalberg.
And when we say that Thalberg fidls below the ex
aectations of nine-tenths of hais hearers, we lay the
lificiecy to the instruaent,-not the miusicinn.

ad at soul-felt enthausiasma, which carry every auadi

piano haa moore of scientific cultivation, and more of
geaniuas. Yet, outside the ranks of toiling professors,
Viuxtemps will comtmand ten plaudits to Thalberg's

We had also the pleasure of seeing nueh of Mr.
RU.vv, of the Ifrus, who is staying at the Mills'
[louse where we stop d while down.
But our limits adm ish us that we must hasten on
to glance at other matters.
7. Business in Charleston is evidently in a state of
stagnation. The wheels are turning very slowly.
And yet there is but little alarm, and scarcely any
sueing. This latter fact we have from a member of
the bar. The disposition on every side is, to ease off
the pressure as gently as may be possible. While all
are more or less cramped in their moneyed resources,
but few have chosen the unfeeling alternative of tax
ing the unlucky debtor with the costs of a suit at law'
The generil course of creditors is that of forbearance
and encouragement. Pnce the cheerful appearance
of almost every one you. meet, in the business tho
roughfares as well as upon the fashionable prome
nades. The debtor is happy in the opportunity of
redeeming his credit by economy and a close atten
tion to the business of his calling; and the creditor
is happy (and is it not a happiness to every right
mind ?) in affording that opportunity to honest indus
try. In this respect, the city of Charloston is setting
a noble example to the State at large. Let it be fol
lowed in every District and town, and the hard times

8. The Sabbath is more generally and becomingly
observed in Charleston, than in any place, large or
small, we have ever visited. Early in the inorning of
that blessed day, the bells of the various churches
sound the call to worship ; and soon the side-walks
are filled with church-goers of every age, sex and con
dition. The remarkably correct demeanor of the on
tire population, in this iiniversal recognition of relig
tous duty, Is well calcufated to impress every stranger
with an adequate idea of the high morality which pre
vails in Charleston life. We remember hearing a
venerable gentleman say of New Orleans some years
ago, that "It was surely a God-forsaken place." How
different with Carolina's Queen City? And how hon
orable the contrast in her favor ?

CHARLESTON, January :;0, 1858.
Our musical community are in perfect cestacies over
the delicious treat they have been enjoying with the
inimitable Thalberg and his gifted colleagues. These
world renowned Artists fully realized the high expec
tations raised In advance of their coming. The three
Concerts at the Iustitute Hall brought out the most
brilliant audieuces ever witnessed iu Charleston. The
great Pianist is a complete master of his instrument,
as the deafening applause of his auditors from night
to night, amply evinced. Vieuxtemps Is equally un
surpassable, whenever he " takes down the fiddlo and
the bow." The Vocalists, Big. Lehman, Madame
Johansen and Miss Kemp, are valuable adjuncts in
their exquisite Ballads, Duetts and Cavatinas. They
are expected to return to the City after visiting Co.
lumbia and Savannah, and will give two more Con
certs on Monday and Tuesday evening, at the Hiber
nian Hall. The "hard times" did not prevent our
devotees of sweet sounds from paying $1,50 for "re
served seats," nor did those who were disposed to re
serve the extra half dollar for some future occasion,
complain of the inconveniences ayd discomforts of
the "dollar seats," so they were enabled to get with
in hearing distance. In consequence of these and
numerous other attractions offering during the week,
our annual visitors have come to the City at an unu
sually early period. The season of Concerts, Balls
and Parties, Lectures and Exhibitions has already
commenced, and the Races next week will bring down
the balance of our country friends. There are one or
more parties or soirees, public or private, in prepara
tion almost nightly, and in every house where there
are "young pe-ple" who take part In the "pomps
and vanities of this wicked world," you will find
Cards with the inscription: "Mrs. - -, No.
- Street, at home - evening - inst., at -
o'clock." A superficial observer would perhaps infer
from appearances that our worthy matrons must be
"great gad-abouts," when the circumstance of being
"at home," on a single evening of the week is suffi
ciently worthy of note to be blazoned abroad on
printed circulars to a whole circle of friends and ad
mirers as " an event !" But this id not a just infer
ence. We have many excellent mamas who are real
ly " discreet, keepers at home, not given to wine, and
love their husbands" as St. Paul commands; but the
little "Young Americas " of the household, who have
actually entered upon their teens and finished school,
must, of necessity, "come out this winter," and poor
dear mama must emerge from her Rip Ynn Winkle
hermitage of twenty years, to " matronic " the sweet
children, and see that they don't get into mischief
a most unthankful undertaking by the way, which
naught but a mother's blind partiality could recog
nize as practicable in these "fust " days of juvenile'
precocity and prematurity.
The first St. Cecilia Ball comes off on Tuesday eve

in the retail Dry Goods line ; for a ditferent dress and
accompanying " fixings," must be provided for each,
and kind papas can go any lengths in "hard-times,"
it being considered discourteous to send in a bill, and
ridiculous to ask for the money, " while the Banks are
doing nothing !"

of Mr. Martin Taylor, a Revolutionary soldier.
She was born in Newberry District, S. C., April 2nd
1787; moved #o Edgefleld with her brother David
about 47 years ago; and was married April, lst 1829.
She was Baptized into the fellowship of Little Ste

nearly 45 years past. She moved her membership
to Gilgal; from thence to Mountain Creek, whore she
remained a consistent member till her death.
She was afflicted with a chronic sore for more
than four years previous to her death; and finally,
was seized with the Dropsy of the Chest which tor
minated her existence. She was truly a devoted
Christian, an affectionate wie, an indulgent mistress,
and a kind benefactress of the poor. She was indeed
a subject of much and severe afflictions; but endured
them with the most Christian fortitude repeatedly
saying "Not my will, but the Lord's be done-all

He possessed an aniable disposition, a warm and
generous heart, and bore with Christi'an fortitude the
severe afflictions he had to pass through. Never was
a murmur or complaint heard to escape his lips, but
he often expressed his willingness to die, humbly
trusting in the meritA of a Crucified Redeemer. He
was perfectly sensible to the last-slpoke calmly of
his upproaching dissolution; and a few hours befo&e
he died requested his sister to send for his friends
that he might bid then farewell. Whilst sinking in
the cold embrace of Death and no longer able to
speak, lie would hold out his j.eble hand to his sym
pathising friends who stood around his bed-side, and
gently piress their hands in token of his undying af
fection and gratitude for their kindness to him.
Thus he passed away with the old year, and e're the
glad New Year dawned on earth his happy spirit hail
winged its way to the God that gave it. Peace to thy
