CHAIMESTON, February 13, 1858.
Although "the Races " have Lad their day, and
many of our visitors with whom they constituted the
main attraction have departed, we are not 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
prtsent and the next, as of the opening gala-week of
the season. We hoar of nothing but balls and parties
and frolics, while the preachers are remonstrating
from the pulpits, warning of the near approach of
" Lent," and rewinding those of their hearers who
have formally "renounced the pomy's 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 ';ildcd balls" where they
"Dance all night
Till broad day light,
And go hoie with the girls in the norning."
Some startling appeals and a good deal of very plain
talk have been rung into the unwilling cars 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 snares for to-morrow night. Every place of
amusement, good and bad, draws its little crowd, and
the Churches look as much like flower-garder.s and
variety-stores, as it is possible for millinors and dress
makers to naike them.
The second St. Cecilia Ball coUtes off at St. Andrew's
Hall on Tuesday evening next. The " Coryphaans "
announced their third vocal and instumenLal Concert
for Wednesday evening last. Their corps of singers
* and performers has been largely extended by the tad
mission of a full choir of ladies, whose sweet tor.cs
now relieve the monotony, so much complained of in
some quarters, occasioned by the employment of male
voices exclusively at the opening concerts. T-o the
efforts of this enterprising Association we are indebted
for much of the increasing interest in musi-, recently
awakened in this City.

The Campbell Minstrels have been showing up the
" darkey" characer at the Theatre. They are held
in very high estimation here, in, their place; but as the
immediate successors of the English Opera Troupe,
the policy of the arrpngeme~nt mtay appear in the eyes
of sensitive Crities to admit of discussion.
Williams' Panoramua of the Bible is on exhibition
at the Institute flail. It will doubtless attract atte
tion. 'The scene opens with " Chaos," and continuaes
down in historical order to the Unabylonishi Captivity,
illustrating some fifty of the most sublimne and inter
esting events in Biblical H~istory. Such exhibitions
as this are instructive as well as entertaining, and
should be encouraged.

Death of Capt. Wnm. Logse.
With much of sadness and regret it is, that we re
!ord the death of one towards whom we have occupied
he most friendly social relations for a number of
ears. Capt. Wxi. LocU died at his residence near
Ihis place on Tuesday evening last, after a brief
Ilness. le had many qualities, both of the head and
)f the heart, which made him, among his friends, one
)f the most valued of companions. A hundred acea

MIR. GREGG'S SPEECH.
We conclude this week the publication ef Mr.
nrca's speech on the Bank Question, as delivered
y that gentleman during the last session of the South
'arolina Legislature. Those who have read it, will
a~ve seen that it is creditable to its author in many
aspects. The debate was one which elicited no marked
trest, although there were sundry speeches of more
r les merit which the occasion called forth. Among
hese, Mr. G anco's was not the least effective. Pre
edod by a reputation for exporiness in money matters,
is views were looked for with interest; nor did ho
l to meet the expectations of his hearers. In our
wn opinion, this effort is the best production of Mr.
laeO-s pen,-certainly far superior, in logical so
nence and consistent reasoning, to his Rail Road
peech of the pareviouts session.

WASHINGTON CITY, Fat. 6.
DEt CoL.-I propose, if it should meet your ap
probation and that of your numerous readers in "old
Edgefield," to give you from time to time, as oppor
tunity 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
torests 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 paperseverwritten.
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
mam1de hero by Douglass' friends to sacrifice the South
fo.r the sake of peace and harmony in the Democratic
party. I, for one, hoie and trust, for the sake of the
South, that they will fight every inch of ground upon
this Katnsus question. The administration msit be
ust:taiued ani Knnsas admitted under the Lemcoupton
Constitution. If the South, as she is asked to do,
has to sucrifice principle and every thing else to nake
the Northern Democrats stick to the party, I any
ict them go. If the country is not now in as delilora
iWe crisis, it never was. The speeches which followed
the iessage in botk Houses furnish evidence of deep
agitation on this subject.
It is impossible to tell at this time what will be the
fate of thu Kunsas question in the Ilouse. The issue
repends upon the action of some ten or a dozen mem
bers who have not defined their position. If 24
N.orthiern Democrats go with Douglass the measure
will be dceeated. As yet but 17 have formally com-i
itted themselves against admission. These 17 mem
ters are confident of defeating the Lecompton Consti
tution, but they calculate upon the co-operation of ten
r twelve memnbers alluded to above. The Washing
on correspondents of the New York Tibunea concede
hat the administration will be sustained in the
It is likely that a bill will be introduced to admit
,.tih Kansas and Minnesota at the seine tinme. The r
Doglass men will support this plan, if they find they
annot defeat the admission of Kansas. Indeod it is
ossible that Douglass himself may avail himself of ~
he opportunity thus offered to recede from the wrong
ierstood that he is just, beginning to realize the ex
ent of his self-destruction.
It is currently rumnorod that the President designs
emioving from oflice the partizans of Douglass in Illi-b
nis, to make room for Administration Democrats.(
Tue anti-D)ouglass Democrats of that State are in b
rvor of such a course. I do not know whether orr
ot the President will yield to the wishes of hisfriends
iu Illinois on this subjet. Bunt the rusuor is that he
will do so, and has greatly alarmed Douglass, and
ay modify hi's opposition to the administration.
Three Southern Senators will vote against the ad- 1
iission of Kansas, Crittenden, Dell and Houston-f
ll Know Nothings. The proposition however will
pass' the Senate.
There is little doubt that thn Lawrence, Stone &
Co., investigatig Co:nmaittee will expose a good deal
sf rascality before they are done. The general im
presion is that it will be proven that ex-Speakor
Banks handled a considerable pile of that $37,000.

hoops, in the place of rope, for holding the bale

and has many warm advocates among planters,
warehousemen, cotton packers, shippers, and
others. We do not know anything about the su

THE GR.EA -ISSUE.
The great issue, the on, of the present
(perhaps the last) Session o ngross, is that of the
admission or rejection of K a naa uder the Lecomp.
ton Constitution. For the X ion; the President
of the Union occupies.the vi2_snpportod by almost
all the Southern membersA . a goodly number of
sound headed Northerne r the rejection, Black
Republicanism unfurls it i 'backed (to its own
evident amazement,) by doiass and his dupes.
The struggle will be a derate one. The element
of Abolitionism will be wr it up to its highest
pitch by its frenriod high And the ambition
of power scarcely led the lious arch-angel to
more daring resolves than I,- .1 beget in the heart of
the so-called "Giant of thest." To meet these
dangerous influences, JA i CeANAN stands forth
fortified with the triple pa of Truth, Justice and
the Constitution; the good,!4nd sound men of the
North have solemnly resolved to sustain him in his
noble course of isdependei , uty; and, last but not
least, the insulted South i.now arrayed in solid
column, prepared to meet tl. issue like patriots, with
out excitement, without bigraess, but with the un
flinching determination toIe'dno more to the ag
gressions of an avowed. The contest must
then be a powerful one, ant.nighty in its results, for
weal or for woe.
The adoption of HAR wsolutions, of Enquiry
and Investigation, is ft being regarded by
Southern members a rejoio. of the Lecompton ap
plicatioi. It is not even, s:was at first said, consid
ered equivalent to its postponement to another Session.
Mr. Speaker Ona has app- the Committee under
the Resolutions; and th mmittee are already at
work. There would seemto be no doubt of their
preparing their report, in &ewto act upon it before
the adjournment next Sunder. Such is the calcula
tion at Washington. Wolare therefore to expect the
decision of this issue by CIdgress within a few months
at the farthest.
Let then the Represonts tYes of the South stand
firm upon the high grouu they occupy beforo the
world. Let them announpi to the country their plat
form, with a distinctness tbt will admit of no mis
construction. Let them cobiort their plans and devise
the line of action they will take, should Kansas be
deliberately rejected on ai6ount of the slavery ques
tion. Let them perfect A4:publish to the American
people this proposed action, and the reasens of its
adoption,-not threateni4*, but dispassionately, and
with the intent of avoiding (if possible) a dissolution
of the Union. Let themcall upon the enlightened
world to witness, that they are moving upon high
principle and for the rightful conservation of their
political and social institgens. And, over and above
all, let every man of the' f pledge his life, his for
tune and his sacred hondj to the stern and unfalter
ing use of all his powerd the attainment of that
great ed. Thus will th outh, through her Sena
tors and Representatives, -pear in the strength and
majesty of her own good use. Thus, will the poo
ple of the South be br t to rally around their
leaders with one unite hout of approval. Thus
will we triumph, and sav thl Union and ourselves.
But undefined and doubiM measures, and ill-concer
tod councils, will but Jud in further compromises
and the further degrada on of our soection. "A long
pull, and a strong pull, aid a pull all together," should
now be the Southern watchward.

uf that paper."
We can scarcely realize the continued existence of
the Patriot with-ut Mnbor Pxaar at its helm, so
inscparably and so foreihy associated have they been
from the first morning ii which that paper saw the
light. Our impiulse is, ta enter a pirotest against this
severance of old ties. Jut we suppose it is one of
those things that must hippen to all papers and all
men alike. lBe it so. It parting from the distin
guished editor of the Pariot, we accord to him the
palm of success in this difficult department of the
literature of the day. Enw papers have been more
eagerly sought aftcr, or rad with more pleasure, than
the.I'otriot of the past aven years. Though differ
ing from its editor on sudry political points, we now
do him hut justice in ayng that he bas ever taken

sincere regrets that the cils of another vocation re
quire him to leave the anks of the fraternity, we at
the same time offer ourjnost cordial wishes for his

DEATH OF COL. WADE HAMPTON.
The announcement, yesterday, of the death of Col
WAnZ HAxIroN, (says the Charleston Jercuirt, of the
13th inst.,) occasioned equal sorrow and surprise in
our-community, in which he had mingled bat a shor
time previously, and apparently ii his usual healti
and spirits. Col. HAMPros, by his many high and
generous qualities, his large ho.4pitality, his dignified
and ceurteous bearing, was one of the representative
men of the State, and was esteomed and admired
wherever known. He was taken sick on the Missis
sippi river, and was landed at Natches, where he die
on the night of the 10th instant. Ilis 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 o
care and scrutiny, we are prepared to speak of it more
fully than in a previous notice. It. is certainly th
most extensive map of our country yet published. Ir
addition to the United States and Territories, there
is also given, in one corner of the broad sheet, a vera
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 Pacifi
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, Jouasox'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. JobsoS, is at present in our Dis
trict, and will call around as generally as possible.
We beg to bespeak for him a favorable reception.
The reader's attention is pointed to the following
very cheering paragraph from the Charleston Evening
News, 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
etary 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-lees than 6 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 capitalists, 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 ostimate shrewdly its probable duration and re
sults. That he has reckoned aright in his present ob
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 six 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 might lend his funds
on good soecurity, at 10 per cent if he will niot do so
for less. The moneyed troubles of '57 andl '58 may
end in a happy jubilee, 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 Stato there has
not b~ecn, after all the thireats to creditors, anything
like the sueing 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 12b cents
per pound, there is enough of the staple yet unsold
to mnake money abundant. The cotton-buyers in
Hamburg are up to the mark, as usual; the Hamburg
Bank too is liberal in furnishing thenm the means of
paying full prices. And Hambhurg 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 readers upon the promising
appearances of the hour, and wish thenm a happy is.
sue out of their monetary afflictions.
Do You Wish to Learn the French'I
The trustees of' the Edgefieldl 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. Hie is an educated Frenchnmn,
and by character a gentleman. All who desire to
take adlvantage of the opportunity now within reach,
w~ill please report their namecs, this ur.e, to Major (G.
A. AnDIsorS, Secretary Board Trustees, Edgefieldl Male
Academy. We can then soon tell whether ,re are to
have a French teache-r or not.
The Committee appointed under the Resolution of
Mr. Haunns, to tatke into consideration certain points
i Kansas affairs, consistsot' seven Black Republicans,
rne Know Nothing, and seven Democrats. It thus
ppears that the Know Nothing holds the b~alance of
power, and, without enquiring, we take it far granted
that he is sound upon the nigger question. Among
th Demnocrats are the two wheel-horses, QUITxAN and
SE::Eas. The fairnesswith uthich this Com dmittee is
ontituted, will make their adjtudication of the qlues

For thc Advertiser.
MR. EDITOR :-I know that you are an honest man,
and always like the fair thing. You were kind
enough to say of us that we fairly gained the " wet
ticket" on last town election. I hope you will still
be kind enough to let us be heard through your col
umns. I wish to answer a piece of stuff which ap
peared in your last over " S." about liquor matters.
Now, Mr. " S." a word to you sir; what sir, is your
rule of morals as a citizen of South Carolina? Is it
South Carolina law? That is my rule-my law; but
isee you are a Seward-man. You go for "h.igher law."
I acknowledge that the license law of the State al
lows the council to go higher or lower as they may
judge best ; but my object is to show that you, so far
as the town council is concerned, are a -higher law
man, may be an abolitionist. The town council has
given us license to retail. They knew it would do
good ; so they did it. So far as I and my brother re
tailers are concerned, we have gone into it for our
- eiea~l nSvantare and good_, and not for charity.
There are some of uis,rf know, a tattue squeamirsh about
making the confession ; but I am a plain man, a South
Carolinian, (i. e. I live here,) a free-man, and will
speak what I please; sa that I "speak truth and
shame the Devil," (if there be a personal DeviL)
Do you think sir, that we are such fools as not to
know the influenco of liquor-drinking ? You reason
that it will "injure heailth." Do you think liqour
dealers are such asses as not to know it ? You talk of
" weeping widows," " ragged orphans," and so on, as
if you were lecturing a school-girl to make her cry.
Now sir, let mec tell you, my calling is made of "stcrn
er stuff;" I know all the namby-panmby talk about
wasted health, and wealth, and mind, and morn~ds, nnd
the purity of society ; I know it is all true, every word
of it, and more ton. But let me tell you, sir, that we
sell lignor.t/at tre may make money. We would! all
like the business better, if these evils didl Rot follow;
but we take the money, and let those who patronise
us, take the evils.
(Now if the Editor were in my bar room, I should
stop writing and say "let's liquor up.")
I will let you know, sir, we have a strong bold on
the community. Don't the ladies drink syllabub?
do't mntromns have their cooking with liquor? Don't
churebh folks drink drains? Didn't some of them vote
the "Wet ?" Donn't even somme of your great temper
ance men argue for our side now ? Don't all this heclp
us?' I heard of a prem:her not lung since who
preached against frolieking, (I don't belong to his cun
gregation,) and if I had kept conmpany with his mem
bers, I should have heard some oft them not a week
afer say, no doubt, "he did imore harm than good
by it." So it is with liquor,-I have no doubt anuy
have said of your trash, "it will do niore harm than
You threaten us with Hell and Damnation in Eter
nity, sir. I will have you to know that there is no
Hll and Damnation in Eternity. Some of the best
citizens of this town, sir, of education too, can prove
there is no Hell the other side of Jordan. And if I
make money in ie, I will risk hereafter.
Now, sir, I will advise you to save your efforts to
bing us to tears in fear of your Devils and Damna
tions. Make those efforts to your granny, who be
lieves in witches, ghost' and devils, and make her
stop her groanings for her grand son, who was stabbed
in a drunken frolic at College. I hear the dimzes
chinek into my tin-box when the men and boys ask
for a drink--and shall I stop for'your say so ? Now,
1 tell you, sir, that you might as well " whistle jigs
to a mile-stone and expect it to dauce," as stop me by
" 0 turn sinner turn,
Why will you die ?"
I just give you a little taste this time. If you
grunt again, you may hear from

HARD TIMES--A REMIEDY
One good result is certain to follow this general
overturn. The mania for overtrading and extravagaut
expenditure has received a salutary check. When
men got once more fairly on their legs experience will
have taught them a useful lesson. The recklessness
of trade will scarcely be repeated in view of the prob
able contingencies of reverse. Fashionable folly will
comport itself severely. As a remedy against all the
disasters which this state of affairs has occasioned, we
recommed the disappointed to try their luck in S.
