CHARLESTON. February 6, 1858.
The Race-week and its lively accompaniments con
stitute, of course, the all-absorbing topic at present in
social oircles. Wednesday, the opening day, was
bright and genial, and our fashionable prumenades-as
well as the course, the centre of attraction-presented
a most fascinating array of fashion and beauty, and
a gorgeous display of equipages, noble steed. and
liveried coachmen, in fine contrast with the vulgar
mob of bhoys, in the shape of ganblers, pedlars, loaf.
erc, thieves, drunkards and blackguards, with whom
our February carnival is an annual harvest of specu
lation and debauchery. Thursday and yesterday
were altogether unpropitious days for all out-door
amusement, disappointing most of the young ladies
in their visions of glove-bettings and flirtations o
the Course. The City is still crowded with strangers,
and the Hotels well filled with merry guests. Our
public Halls are all occupied for various purposes.
Lectures, Exhibitions, Museums, Concerts, Soirees,
Balls and Parties-the Opera House, Anniversaries.
Convocations, Artist's Galleries, all contribute their
ample share in collecting crowds together, and afford
ing occupation and entertainment to our visitors.
Almost every evening of the week has been appro.
priated to some magnificent Ball, Soiree or Reception,
among which the SL Ceciliaaud the Jocky Club Balls
always hold the lre-eninence, as the regular annual
re-unions of this particular season.

The latest New York Fashion-the Peasant Petti
coat-has not yet found its way here. Your fair read
ers are pirobably aware that this novel iden was intro
duced by Queen Victoria who observed it in the c
tume of the peasant girls at her estate in Balumoral,
Scotland. It is iniproperly calledl the "Scarlet Pet
ticoat," on the same principle as blackberries nre said
to be gran' when they nr e ml--for with the exception
of a ve-ry few in which the embroidery is done in scar
let wool, this color is seldin adopted, green or purple
being prefered. It is made not of flannel, but of a
fine all-wool material, motre than twice the thickness
of ordinary flannel, and is worn over a small qtuilted
hoop. Tihe dress worn over it is looped up on one
eide to display a portion of the boarder of the p.etti
coat, andl one hand raises the other side to keep it
from the pa:vemient. Only two or three have as yet
appearedl on the streets of the great emporium, and it
is not yet certain whether the new style will becomne
popular. Efforts are strenuously made at the same
time to revive the lung narrow skirts of our great
grandmothers, in oppolsition to the enormous hoops of
the prcsent day. If these should b~e successful, all
the ladies will then look as if they had just got over
an attack of dlropsy and gone into consumption, or been
suddtenly metammorphoeed from hogsheads into lmy
poles. rShort waists and gored skirts will carry every
thing before them-and then how many who noiw
shine as stars of the first magnitude will be shorn of
their fair proplorti-na, and come duwn to very moder
ate dimnnious. Bonnets are still worn pretty smalt.
Colored vel vets, black or dark green, are very fashion
able among the Northern ladies.
Our Charleston ladies are running their New York
sisters pretty hamrd in the muatter of personal adorn

coming very nervous on the subject of those twelve
dollar bonnets and fifty dollar silks, of which they
hear so much in these hard times. With the great

This gentleman has been placed in custody, at his

THE aDGEILD MALE ACADEMY.
We have pleasure in stating that this institution
opened on Monday last with about fifty students. M2a
ny more are expected to arrive at an early day, Mr.
LrZSLY, and his assistant, Mr. DowTrs, are at their
posts, and already, if we may so speak, in med in. res.
We shall now undoubtedly possess the advantages of
a first rate School for our boys,-among the best (if
not the very best) in the State. It Is reviving, to
know that the classic old spot, where AnMsTnoNG,
MCCLINTOCK, MANLY and STAFFOrn, have severally
wielded the birchen sceptre and trained the young
idea, is again to have the true fire of literary emula
tion kindled on its reinstated altars by a scholar of
equal worth and ability with the best of those re
spected magisters of a departed day. That academic
grove is one of the places, whose associations will
ever be dear to many of us who have now passed the
iron gate of manhood. With Gray, in his "Distant
prospect of Eton College," we can feelingly say of
that grove and its surrounding country,
Ah, happy hills, al, pleasing shade,
Ah, fields beloved in vain,
Where once my careless childhood stray'd
A stranger yet to pain !
I feel the gales that from ye blow,
A momentary bliss bestow,
As, waving fresh their gladsome wing,
My weary soul they seem to soothe,
And, redolent of joy and youth,
To breathe a second spring."
But we are running headlong into the poetical,
when we were really intent only upon the practical.
Wo repeat then, that we have now a preparatory
classical school of high order; and all who are con
venient to its benefits should congratulate themPelves
upon the new and superior facilities thus placed in
their way. Let no one detain his son or ward from
these facilities from an apprehension that the school
will be too large. There is a degree of rivalry and
spirit and enthusiasm begotten in a large academy,
which is seldom to be found in small and obscure
schools ; and this very thing is peculiarly calculated to
fit our youth, tirst for a manly and successful career
in College, and next for taking a prominent post in
the occupations of after life. Let then the Edgefield
Academy become an educational conventicle, where
at least the noble boys of old Edgefield shall come
together, and, arm in arm, and heart to heart, he pre
pared to g(, forth in search of higher knowledge, when
they shall have cre.litably passed beyond its walls.

WvAvr, who, in conjunction with P. HI. B~ITaImr,
Esq., are talso its editors. It is democratic to the core
andl wartmly favorable to the administration of Mr.
BattAN . It is also decidedly conservative, and has
already taken issue, very boldly aid ably, with the f1.
libusterinag spirits whonm WVAr.Kn's late proagress
through the South West kindledl into life. The ON
fedeaon, we have no doubt, represents the true-blue
deutocracy of Alabama; and any one desirous of
keeping himself correctly informed in Western poli
tics would do well to take its weekly issue. J. J.
Srineatms, Esq., its senior proprietor and editor, is well
known to the country as late Minister to Belgium
fromi thte United States. He is mareover a Carolinian,
and a gentlemaan of clear intellent ntd lofty tonto.
We of'er to outr old college class-mate, and his
worthy coadjutors, our heartiest wishes for the per
KANSAS AND THE UNITED SOUTH.
The news from VaIbington City is atpresentwatched
with intense anxiety. pending the discussion and dis
posal of the Kansas. question. The President has
sent to Congress his message upon the subject, and
that body is now deeply cngaged in its consideratiun.
As a matter of course, he has taken tho strongest nod
highest grounds in favor of the admission of the new
State under the Leepmpton Constitution. For this
ho commands the plaudits of the South, and of all
right-thinking Democrats the country over; while
the Republicans and Little Giant-iter denounce his
message as a stupendous misrepresentation of Kansas
The letter-writersfor our Southern papers inclino
to the opinion that Kansas will come in as a Shove
State, despite the efforts of the opposition to tho con
trary. DocoT.Ass's desertion has haii the effect of
drawing off a few Democrats from the support of the
administration ; But the defection, thus caused, is not
regarded of sufficient extent to endanger the chances
of the Lecompton applioation.
There is one most gratifying feature of the passing
struggle, to which our attention has been directed by
a gentleman whose position enables him to form a
correct opinion ; and it is, the almost unprecedented
unanimity prevailing among Southern members on
this vexed Issue. Neither is this unanimity a simple
agreement on principle. It is a deep, strong-flowing
stream of sentiment and feeling, carrying along with
it the hopes and resolves of our patriots and states
men at the Federalpapital. They are neither clam
orous, nor disposed to create any premature excite
mient on the subject in controversy; yet are they
none the less keenly alive to the true posture of their
section in regard tI'ireto, as well as to the direct
hearing of an adverse decision upon the honor and
character of themselves and the people they repre
sent. This union of the heads and hands and hearts
of Southern Senators and Representatives, is the
thing of all others most to be desired for the weal of
our country. "United, we stand," and with us stand
the hopes and prospects of free America. "Divided,
we fall,"-and with us must fall the temple of our
liberties. How gratifying then, in the present junc
ture, to know that our Congressmen are banded as
brothers, and ready, shoulder, to fight to the last en
trenchment for the triumph of Constitutional right,
or, failing in that, to confront the enemies of their
section and demand an equitable partition of the
Confederacy and its possessions.
But the time for the adoption of this last, dire al
ternative, is surely not yet at hand. Let us rather
hope that it may never come. The present firm unan
imity of Southern members, is a pillar of strength to
our cause, which will be seen and feared by the North.
Let that unanimity be but kept unbroken, and even
the madness of Ablitionism will quail before its
power. It will not only carry the President's Kansas
policy to a successful issue, but it will rule the Gov
ernment and shape the country's future destiny.
There are true and sound men enough at the North,
to ensure to the united South a series of victories in
her steady pursuit of justice under the Constitution.
With these and with- the power of the Government
on her side, and with a cause that rests upon reason
and religion for its justification, she cannot surely
fail to save both herself and the Union of which she
yet forms a mighty division. Let us trust then that
the aduission of Kansas will be but the first of a
succesrion of measures which will end in the reforma
tion of American politics and the salvation of the
Amercan Union. But let us ever bear in mind, that
to secure this end, the South must stand unted.

paper, recently started at Newberry C. Ht. by Mesers.

MILITARY SCHOOLS. du
Ma. Eniion:-I see one of your correspondents is th,
down upon the idea of a Military School at this place. lie
Hle objects on the grounds, that it cultivates the Mili- in
tary spirit too much for sober civilized life, and its du
ties ; und gives the feeling to youth, that the military en
glory, is the great g1ory. lin
I must respectfully enter my objections to his views. a I
Do men receive their education at schools? Ianswer us.
"No." The School and the College are not to give the
education necessary to man, but only to p~repire Ain# thl
for his education, which he will be getting as long as cal
be lives-and if he would be educated, he will be a hi:
much harder student when he quits College, than he lea
was before. This is the uibrokeu experience of the tio
truly lerned in all lands. Then, what is the bit: of ha
the school and College ? The propsr ;nswer to this sol
question is. "to train the misrd and senses to simple is
and direct,'w:iods of acquiring knowledge." It is inj
.wtien'ch how to discipline the mind, and keel) its'
powers concentrated on a given thing. Any thing
that does this, makes the great preparation for getting
knowleuge. The military habit, is the habit that isR
trained. And I can conceive of nothing that will give
this tralotng better. MathematIes to the mid and
discipline to the body at the same tiine, seems to me, c
to lie advancing towards perfection in the art of teach- )
ing. It is thcory and piractice together. Pt
I amn at a loss why your correspondent " PzsexNav " rc
shuld dread the military spirit in the South and in ap
South Carolina. For himi to, do this over the name of la
"Piekn " is curious. The South is now the weak-it
et half of the Union, and what is more she is not
suffered to enjoy her rights, intnet in this l'nion. In st
the matter of Cilifornia she was insultedl by the Fed- st,
eal thovertnment-allowing those who were whipped ej,
out of their country by Southern valor and money, to pr
sly to Southern men "you shall not conie here with sa
ynneo property andl live, lbut Yankees may." She has in
been'i plunderedl by the Fedleral Tariff, and' she hias toi
been dlegradled by the Northern half trying almost i~
sccssfully to hem her in b'y prsrbn her boun
d~ris, whilst theirs are inthiite. No'w, when the
crowning act is nearly fmni~tbed in the matter of Kin
sea, is this the tiime for " P'IseKxss," that hionoured
name, to, rail out ingniinst the Militairy spirit in his en

As an unplensaint ditfieulty lhis arisen betwecn one ini
~f y neighbors aind niyself, and as many rmiors aire
uflot in regard to saidl iieuilty, I have dleemied it '
necessary to give a true and plain i-tatement of the iii.
fets as they occurred, and let the community judge i
who is ini error.
On moy mioving; where I now live, Mrs. Hlerlonig
asked perisisiont to turn her turkeys in toy calf pits
tore. I gave her leave provided they did nt get in
t ~e fields that I tendled. Year biefore last they wereu
driven in moy onts-tieldl, tty near any b,-. I whipp'1ed '
the negro that nmindled the turkeys twice ouit of may

when I was not uboumt. Last year the turkeys were 1m
again ini my onits-lield. I haid oats on the rand. I i
ent wordl by my son to Mrs. HIeiug to keel. themni
out ; they were kepit out only a short time. About this coli
time the Hlerlongs got tuadl with me, and as far us iny IIu
Church rondl went through their land1 it was cut full
of trees. Their guinleas were every anuy in toy oats.
Oie Suinday as I was passing, I saw some of theirto
negroes hutnting guinea nests in miy outs-field. I told
them to keep the guineas and themselves out of liy
plan tation. I was afterwards told by HI. M. Hlerhong cot
that te negroes told Mrs. Herleng what I sail. 'The bieu
guineas were not taken away. Soon after the turkeys
were again drove in. I saw.- them more than once Pol

end pt over the fence. I suppose it could not fly fr
over. This was done just across the road fromt Mr. (
Hlerlong's. Whenever I went towards whetre they frol
were, they were hurried off to the yard. tha
At last I could stand it noe longer. I went down to
the road and called Mike Hlerlong frotm the store. 1 thi
told hint what I had seen, and asked him to tell his to
motier, for mae, to keepi her turkeys out of moy field. dat
I to~ld him I did not wish to injure any thing she had,

if I ever caught themt in my field again, I would posi- 9
tively kill them. They own that she wits told tile
Afterwards I teld Mr. Hlerlong, at Enmory Chapel, that
I would not stand the turkeys ont my oats any longer ; tiot
hut so soion as my oats were sown last fall the turkeys gla
and guineas were In again. I waited till they were act
in three days before I shot them, for I had reason to _.__
believ they were not out of sight long at a time. The
third day I shot, I think, three or four turkeys and --
five guineas. They kniew where to get them after they
wre- shot witthout any word fromt me ; and I have E
been told by one of the family, that they were look- Tai
