CWA RTETON COE!'ESPONDENCE.
CHA1I.ESTON, February 13, 1858.
Although "the Races" have Lid their day, and
many of our visitors with whom thy constituted the
main attraction have departed, we are u.st left withoit
ample resources of enjoyment for all who remain.
The gaieties have indeed barely commenced, and eve
ning entertainments are as much the order of the
prbsent and the next, as of the opening gula-week of
the season. We hear of nothing but balls and parties
and frolics, while the preachers are reionstratimg
from the pulpits, warning of the near approoch of
"Lent," and remindiug those of their henrers who
have formally "renounced the pomps and vanities,"
as well as the majority who have failed to do so, that
the great objects of life are not exclusively confined
to those "gilded halls " where they
"Dance all night
Till broad day light,
And go houte with the girls in the naorning."
Some startling appeals and a good deal of very plain
talk have becii rung into the unwilling ears of the
beaux and belles at Church, " going in at one side
and coming out at the other," while the restless list
eners are counting up last night's conquests and lay
ing new enares for to-morrow night. Every place of
amusement, good and bad, draws its little crowd, and
the Churches look as much like flower-gardens and
variety-stores, as it is possible for millinors and dress
makers to nauke them.
The second St. Cecilia Ball comes off at St. Andrew's
Hall on Tuesday evening next. The " Corypmeans "
announced their third vocal and instumental Concert
for Wednesday evening last. Their corps of singers
* and performers has been largely extended by the ad
mission of a full choir of ladies, whose sweet tornes
now relieve the monotony, so much complainmed of in
some quarters, occasioned by the employment or male
- voices excluisively at the opening concerts. To the
efforts of this enterprising Association we are indebted
for much of the inereasing interest in music, recetly
awakened in this City.

may conduct him.
The Campbell Minstrels have been showing up the
"darkey" characer at the Theatre. They are held
ins very high estimation here, in their place; but as the
immodiate successors of the English Opera Troupe,
the policy of the arrptngemecnt maay appear in the e-yes
of sensitive critics to admit of discussion.
Williams' Panorama of the Bible is on exhibition
at the Institute Hall. It will doub~tlei's attract atte
tion. The scene opens with " Chaos," and contionue'
down in historical order to the Uabylonish Captivity,
illustrating some fifty of thu most sublime and inter
esting events in Biblical History. Such exhibitions
as this are instructive as well as entertaining. ando
should ho encouraged.
Max Maretzek is expected here on Monday evening

WASHINGTON CITY, Fzn. 6.
DEAR Co.-I propose, if it should meot your ap
probation and that of your numerous readers in "old
Edgefield," to give you from time to time, as oppor
Iunity offers, my observations on the affairs of the
nation, as they develop themselves here in the Fede
The Kansas question, of all others at this time, in
terests the South most, and is now before Congress in
a tangible shape. Yesterday the President sent in
the Lecompton Constitution, accompanied by a Mes
sage strongly recommending its acceptance. This
Message is one of the ablest state papers ever written.
It covers the whole ground. The President's defence
of the legality of the Lecompton Constitution is com
plete and unanswerable. His argument in favor of
the admission of Kansas under that Constitution, is
equally irresistable. The President, in the stand he
has taken on this important question, will be sup.
ported by the unanimous South, and all good men
at the North. It cannot be denied however that
many Northern Democrats will follow the "Little
Giani." Judge Douglass. Strong efforts are being
made here by Douglass' friends to sacrifice the South
for the sake of peace und harmony in the Democratic
party. I, for one, hoj.e and trust, fur the sake of the
South, that they will fight every inch of ground upon
Lhis Kanas questinn. The administration mut be
ustaiued and Kansas ndmitted under the Lecompton
Lonstitution. If the South, as she is asked to do,
hias to sacrifice principle and every thing else to mnke
lie Northern Democrats stick to the party, I ay
ut them go. If the country is not now in a del,lora
ie crisis, it never was. The speeches which followed
the Message in botk Houses furnish evidence of deep
gitation on this Eubject.
It is impossible to tell at this time what will be the
'ate of the Kunsus question in the House. The issue
epends upon the action of some ten or a dozen inem
ers who have not defined their position. If 24
't.rthern DemocratE go with Douglass the measure
Kill be defeated. As yet but 17 have formally coml.
nittod themselves against admission. These 17 men
,ers are confident of defeating the Lecompton Consti
.ution, but they calculate upon the co-operation of ten
r twelve meinbers alluded to above. The Washing
on correspondents of the New York Tribune concede
hat the administration will be sustained in the
It is likely that a hill will be introduced to admit
,'tih Knas and Minnesota at the same time. The
Douglass men will support this plan, if they find they
annot def'eat the admission of Kansas. Indeodl it is
,ossible that Douglass himself may avail himself of
lie opportunity thus offered to recede from the wrong
io nh'b'ha tak-I; ~for it seems To-~~ b'!~U
erstood that he is just beginning to realize the ex
ent of his self-de:;truction.
It is currently' rumored that the P'resident designs
emonving from of0iee the partizans of Douglass in lli
wis, to umake room for Administration Democrats.
rho anti-Douglass Democrats of that Stato are in
avor of such a course. I do not know whether or
ot the President will yield to the wishes of hisfriends
u Illinois on this subjet. lBut the rutnor is that he
will do so, and has greatly alarmed Douglass, and
nay modify his oppuositions to thu administration.
Threa Southern Senators will vote against tho ad
nision of Kansas, Crittenden, Bell and Houston
di Know Nothings. The proposition however will
pas the Senate.
There is little douubt that the Lawrence, Stone &

of the uost valued of companions. A hundred occa

MR. GREGG'S SPEECH.
We conclude this week the publication ef Mr.
GanREGGs speech on the Dank Question, as delivered
y that gentleman during the last session of the South
arolina Legislature. Those who have read it, will
have seen that it is creditable to its author in nmany
respects. The debate was one which elicited no marked
ntere<t, although there were sundry speeches of more
or lesas merit which tho occasion called forth. Among
these, Mr. Gnneno's was not the least effectire. Pre
eded by-a reputation for expertness in money matters,
iis views were looked for with interest; nor did he
fail to meet the expectations of his hearers. In our
own opinion, this effort is the best production of Mr.

THlE CHARLESTON MIERCURY.
The now p~rospeetus of this paper may be found
among the advertisements on our third page. Atten
tion is reqjuestod to what it sets forth. The .Meresry
is a paper of many proud associations. For years
it hs occupied the position of a leading Southern
Journal; and hy its devotion to Southern rights and
interests, has weoll sustained itself in that enviable
attitude. Boasting, in its long and brilliant career,
a succession of talented and spirited editors, its very
name has come to be thought of as inseparably con
nected with the intelligence and chivalry of the sun
ny South. Under its present efficient management, it
cannot well fall below its established popularity, or
do discredit to its historical anteedents. Its proprie
tor and conductors have our best wishes for a con
tinued increase of the weal and prosperity of their
old and favorite press. But turn to the prospectus.
fa Bishop Henry B. Bascom, one of the Bishops
of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, died on
Sunday the 7th inst., at the residence of the Rev. Mr.
8tevinsn, in Louisville, Ky., where he had been a
tig time ill.
The great issue, the trilal, o10tion, of the present
(perhaps the last) Session of gros, is that of the
admission or rejection of Ka under the Lecomp
ton Constitution. For the Mislon; the President
of the Union occupies ths ;Wsupported by almost
all the Southern memliersJ: a goodly number of
sound headed Northerners. or the rejection, Black
Republicanism unfurls its - er,,backed (to its own
evident amazement,) by Doa oass and his dupes.
The struggle will be a d one. The element
of Abolitionism will be w t up to its highes
pitch by its frenzied high- tW; And the ambition
of power scarcely led the rbellious arch-angel to
more daring resolves than i, 1ll beget in the heart of
the so-called " Giant of th it." To moot these
dangerous influences, JAMU& BUcuAWAN stands forth
fortified with the triple panio of Truth, Justice and
the Constitution; the good and sound men of the
North have solemnly resolved to sustain him in his
noble course of independeniduty; and, last but not
least, the insulted South now arrayed in solid
column, prepared to meet dg issue like patriots, with
out excitement, without bitLrness, but with the un
flinching determination to Eld-no more to the ag
gressions of an avowed e"ty. The contest must
then be a powerfal one, saniMighty in its results, for
weal or for woe.
The adoption of Hsarl olutions, of Enquiry
and Investigation, is far ft-om being regarded by
Southern members a reject of the Lecompton ap
plication. It is not even, u was at first said, consid
ered equivalent to its postp ementto another Session.
Mr. Speaker Ona has appo d the C ommittee under
the Resolutions; and thatImittee are already at
work. There would seenno be no doubt of their
preparing their report, in , e-to act upon it before
the adjournment next Summer. Such is the calcula
tion at Washington. W'eVae therefore to expoot the
docision of this issue by Clujsress within a few months
at the farthest.
Let then the Representatives of the South stand
firm upon the high grouid they occupy before the
world. Let them announp to the country their plat
form, with a distinctness th will admit of no mis
construction. Let them concert their plans and devise
the line of action they will take, should Kansas be
deliberately rejected on account of the slavery ques
tion. Let them perfect at publish to the American
people this proposed action,' and the reasons of its
adoption,-not threatenuinl, but dispassionately, and
with the intent of avoiding (if possible) a dissolution
of the Union. Let them eall upon the enlightened
world to witness, that thb are moving upon high
principle and for the rihtful conservation of their
political and social insti. ions. And, over and above
all, let every man of the- "pledge his life, his for
tune and his sacred honr" to the stern and unfalter
ing use of all his powers in the attainment of that
great esd. Thus will the.outh, through her Sena
tors and Representativesl appear in the strength and
majesty of her own good4ns e. *Thus, will the poo.
ple of the South be broug t to rally around their
leaders with one united. shout of approval. Thus
will we triumph, atzd saio the Union and ourselves.
But undefined and doubtful measures, and ill-concer
tod councils, will but and in further compromises
and the further degradatioh of our section. "A lung
pull, and a strong pull, aid a pull all together," should
now be the Southern watohward.
Hearing that the ladie of our Baptist Congrega.
tion had set their headstto -improving their Church
and Church-yard, we walked in that direction a few
mornings since, and foid all that we had heard to
be true. The interior of Me House is freshly painted,
in good style; and the yard has been laid off with a.
view to cultivating shruibbery and flowers amiongst
the graves of the departed. The rearing of rich ever
greens over the tombs of the dead, has ever occurred
to us as being a most appropriate tribute of affection,
emblematic, as they auie, of constancy and hope,
constancy in the attsc ments of life, and hope for
their renewal in a bighs and better world. With a

The Patriot & Maji. Perry.
Our last " Patriot & Atountaineer" is not at hand;
but from an exchange before us we pluck the follow
ing notice :
" The Greenville (S. C.) Patriot & 3femntuineer, of
the 11th inst., contains the valedictory of the lHon. B.
F. P'erry, who for seven years has been the editor
of that paper."
We can scarcely realize the continued existence of
the Patriot without Ma'or PIanY at its helm, so
imseparably and so forciby associated have they been
from the first morning ii which that paper saw the
light. Our impbulse is, ta enter a protest against this
severance of old tics. Jut we suppose it is one of
those things that must hppen to all papers and all
men alike. Be it so. I parting from the distin
guished editor of the Periot, we accord to him the
palmn of success in thindillicult department of the
literature of the day. Fir papers have been more
eagerly sought after, or rnd with more pleasure, thian
the, 'atot of the past wen yenrs. Though differ
ing from its editor on sut~ry political points, we now
do him but justice in sapg that lie has ever taken
his grounds with manliess and maintained them
with unwavering- consistey. While expressing our
sincere regrets that the eis of another vocation re
quire himt to leave the niks of the fraternity, we at
the saume time offer outwist cordial wishes for his
future health, hiappinesiud continuced success.

DEATH OF COL. WADE HAMPTON.
The announcement, yesterday, of the death of Col,
WADZ HAMiroY, (says the Charleston .ercutry, of the
13th inst.,) occasioned equal sorrow and surpriso in
our-community, in which he had mingled but a short
time previously, and apparently in his usual healtl
ajnd spirits. Col. IAxi-To, by his many high and
generous qualities, his large hosipitality, his dignified
and eourteous bearing. was one of the representative
men of the State, and was esteemed and admired
wherever known. He was taken sick on the Missis
sippi river, and was landed at Natches, where he died
on the night of the 10th instant. His remains are on
the way to Columbia, in charge of his son, C. F.
JOHNSON'S NEW MAP.
Having examined this map with some degree of
care and scrutiny, we are prepared to speak of it nore
fully than in a previous notice. It is certainly the
most extensive map of our country yet published. In
addition to the United States and Territories, there
is also given, in one corner of the broad sheet, a very
satisfactory map of the world, exhibiting the relative
position of each hemisphere, and showing at a glance
not only both sides of the Atlantic but of the Pacific
ocean also. On the main map, the lines of the new ter
ritories seem to be faithfully and accurately drawn.
The railroad routes throughout the whole country are
also laid down, and the projected routes, including the
several schemes of the great Pacific Road, that is to
be. The coloring of the map is brilliant and its typo
graphical execution as distinct as need be. Indeed,
taking all its features into view, JouxsoN's New Map
strikes us as being an admirable work. As such we
commend it to our readers. It will make a handsome
and inost useful addition to the furniture of every
intelligent citizen's hall.
The agent, Mr. Johxsox, is at present in our Dis
trict, and will call around as generally as possible.
We heg to bospeak for him a favorable reception.
The reader's attention is pointed to the following
very cheering paragraph from the Charleston Eening
A'cXca, of the 8th instant:
"The times are improving. The prices of Ameri
can produce are advancing. Cotton has again reached
a paying point, and assumed steadiness at all points.
It has also commenced to come forward freely, and
planters, with a certainty of remunerating rates, can
now powerfully aid in effecting and sustaining a mon
otary reaction. The banks of Philadelphia, Baltimore
and Washington have just resumed specie payments,
following the previous action of those of New York,
whose money plethora begins to find relief in even
low rates of interest-less than G per cent. on first
class paper. A similar condition and process exhibit
themselves in England. France still earlier recovered
her equilibrium, and the return of confidence through
out Europe is marked in its progress. Consols have
gone up to over 95, showing that cnpitalists, where they
can have confidence, are assenting to the most moder
ate rates of interest. The advices from Manchester
are favorable, and trade indicates revived activity and
steadiness. The receipts of gold from California and
Australia continue full, and the flow of a re-swelling
credit is everywhere felt.
Our cotemporary has watched the moneyed crisis
with constant concern, and from his position, is ena
bled to estimate shrewdly its probable duration and re
sults. That he has reckoned arightin his presentob
servations, is most earnestly to be hoped. With him,
we think the indications decidedly good for a happy
clearing-up of the financial 'spell,' which has hung
so gloomily over the people for the last bix months.
In the country, as in the cities, matters are becoming
easier every day. The rise in the cotton market will
at once throw a large amount of bank bills into cir
culation. The crop will be no longer held back.
Every planter will sell, and ought to sell. If he has
no debts to pay on his own account, he probably has
friends who have. To these he taight lend his funds
on good soecurity, at 10 per cent if he will not do so
for less. The moneyed troubles of '57 and '58 may
end in a happy juhilee, if every one will thus act.
Such in point of fact is the course now being adopted
by the planters. On our side of the State there has
not been, after all the tlhreats to creditors, anything
like the sucing that was anticipated. Return-day, for
Edgefield at least, is passed, and no great harm done.
hundreds of thousands,-of indebtedness, will be
liquidated amongst us by the proceeds of the large
remaining portion of, our cotton crop. At 12& cents
per pound, there is enough of the staple yet unsold
to make money abundant. The cotton-buyers in
Hlamburg are up to the mark, as usual; the Hamburg
Bank too is liberal in furnishaing them the means of
paying full prices. And Hlamblurg money, suspension
or no suspension, is as good as Mr. Dorn's gold in
these parts. Treasury Notes could be no better. On
ly let there be enough of it, and all will be well. We
warmly congratulate our rcadlers upon the promising
appearances of the hour, and wish them a happy is
sue out of their monetary afflictions.
Do You Wisha to Learn the French ?
The trustees of the Edgeficldl Male Academy have
the opportunity of engaging a superior teacher of
French. They cannot do so upon the proceeds of their
school solely. The assistance of a class or classes out
side is necessary to secure the services of the teacher
they have in view. H~e is an eduen ted Frenchman,
and by character a gentleman. All who desire to
take advantage of the opportunity now within reach,
will pilealse report their names, tid areek, to Major (1.
A. Aimsox, Secretary Bloard Trustees, Edgefieldl Male
Academy. We can then soon tell whether we are to
have a French teacher or not.
The Committee appointed under the Resolution of
MIr. H~tunts, to take into consideration certain ploints
n Kanusas nffairs, consistsof seveni Black Republicans,1
mne Know Nothing, and seven Decmocrats. It thus
ippears that thme Know Nothing holds the balance of I
>ower, and, without enquiring, we take it for granted I
hat he is sound upon the nigger question. Among
lhe Democrats are the t wo wheel-horses, Qurvu~x and
rFvEPHEys. The fairness with ahich this Com mittee is
unetituted, will make their adljndication of the qjues- I
tons referred to them tiig:l in effct, pirovided there c
e any thing like a general agreement among them. t
