CHARLEST'iN. March 27, 1858.
Our people are proverbially foi -1 of going into ex
tremes. After a complete surfeit of dissipation of
every kind through the winter, which even the arri
val of Lent at first failed to put a Stoi, to, the scene
suddenly changes, and public attention is absorbed in
a serios of excitements of a very different character.
The papers are filled every tiny with advuri-ement'
of I 'ia J'?C,yrr J !/MtL.-ind there is a very evi
dent iisupoition to gut up revlval< in many of our
churches and religious bodies. The Young Men's
Christain Association are holding daily prayer maet
ings at early hours of the norniug. In the Metho
dist Churches meetings have been held nightly for a
fortnight past. Union meetings are held at the Cir
cular Church every afternoou, which are attended by
Protestant Clergymen and Laymen of various de.
nominations, and also at the Masonie Hall and at the
Temperance Hall in the t'pper Wards. The Episco
palians are keeping Lent, and will have as usual,
daily services during Puesdon week. Our Hebrew
brethren commemorate their Passover about the same
time, and the annual ceremonies incident to this peri
od of the year arc in preparation among the IRuman
Catholics. So that with our whole r.ligi'.us commu.
nity the present is a smeson of special prayer and
self-examination. The last named exercise, will, I
fear, if conducted in a proper spirit of humility,
prove more now than ever, a pretty hard ordeal fur
the great majority of us to go through, and happy
will it be in every respect for those humble souls
whose inordinate self-l',ve and devotion to maimon
should not be too strong to unable them to acknowl
edge the painful truth that they are "no better than
they should be."
While our young folks generally have been indulg
ing freely in the '"pomps and vanities," "young
America " is not slow in deviling juvenile resounrces
of amusemtent. "Kiting" and "picking eggs " all
pear to have run their course, and Bull~oonae are in the
. accend-ancy. These exciting diversions, together
with marbles, balls, tops, pluffers, bilbo-ketches, and
- the enlivening pastimes of " shinny," " toucher,"
"prisoner's base," and others which will recall to
many of your grown-up readers, innkable pleas
ant associations of childhood's happy days, serve to
fl up very profitably the hours of "recess " and in
tervals between school-rccitationas, until the welcome
arrival of the Easter holidays now near at hand, when
all the boys and girls who can get away, make a gen
eral rush for the country.
The Theatre has been re-opened for a short Spring
season. Bronne, the famous comedian, Miss Raymond
and Miss Shaw, are among the stars figuring on the

An inquest was held ont Sunday lest at the Marine
Hospital, on the body of Alfred Douviand, a native of
Belgium, seaman from the Schooner Shepherd a
Mount, who died on Saturday afternoon of wour.dls
received on board of the Schooner. It appears that
the deceased was struck b~y Andrew Wade, another
seaman, on the right side of the head, with a hand
spike, inflicting a terrible wound. Captain Smith.
the Cotmmandler of the Sch"'oner, kept Douvatnd oni
board 'tilt Wednesday 1ith, and then sent him to the
Hospital, and sailed immediately for Georgetown, S.

His researches in this interesting field have been at
tended with valuable results. The learned Professor
Agassis, says in a letter to Professor 1H., which is ap
pended to this Essay, that "nothing has impressed
him so deeply for manuy years past as the eight of
these bones," and that he considers their careful study
in all their relations as " of the utmost importance to
the progress of science."

MR. KEITT AND THlE " OLD GUARD."
Our limits have prevented sour copying tihe late
speech of Mr. Kr.mn upton the Kansas qunestion. It
was conceived in his usunl eloquent style asnd prc.
sented the argument in a forcible light. The follow
ing are his closing remarks, in which it will be seen
that lhe pays a very handsonme incidental tribute to
the " uldl Democratic guard." His allusion to Presi
dent Becnias is particularly beautiful:
Sir, events are drifting to a dissolution of the Con
federacy. The slavery question, it would seem, will
slit it, as it has hitherto preserved it. Feudl, rival.
ry, jealousy, class strife at the North, havo been kept
down by a foreign war, by that section, against the
South. But for this, they would long since have
risen up and shaken down the fabric of tlovernment
and society. The South, too, has been masde firmier,
andi pressed closer together by her resistanoe to this
war. Through it beth sectiomns are being rapidly
consolidated. This onsuohidtation has hitherto been
prevented by the Democratic party. Its ranks are
now being thinned by desertion, andi broken through
by assaults. When it gives way, the bands of this
Union will be burst asunder. The President still
stands firm, crowned with civic honors, covered with
the love of the people, and guarded by the patriotism
of the country; he still holds the citadel of the Con
stitution, and has planted its flag upon the topmost
turret. The South sustains him, and the "old guard
of the free States" have loekesd their shields aroundi
hin. They have rejected the blandishments of local
patronage and the sedluctions of leauders once trusted,
and have stood to their duty andI their color,. The
"old guard" of Napoleon, which haud carried his ea
gles all over Europe, and shaken them out only in
victory, were drawn up to see the Louvre stripped of
the glories and trophies they had gathered there, and
to give in their adhesion to the new powers. They
saw glories and trophies both disappear ; and stirred
no feature, and moved not a step, while these were
borne away. But when their loyalty was asked to
the new powers, they indignantly scorned the propo-.
sal. Like the " old guard" of Napoleon stands the
old guard of Democracy in the free States; it still
stands true to the traditions and testimionials and
histories of its past; it scorns thme ad yances of fanati..
cism; nor, without .triking a. b7ow, will it tallow omie
of its glories to bie sullied, or one of its trophies to
be removed. WVill you, who have been in this old
guard, take your former plauce in its ranks; or will
you go over to another standlard, and swell the legions
of the enemy? Your answer will be historical. Make
it well, and make it wisely.
Wt The House on the 27th inst., refused to expel
Orasmus B. Matteson, the member from the 20th
Congressional District of New York. The session

thadsc....n o arr... afrs.
We of Edgefield should hold ourselves fortunate in
being so conveniently near to this brisk, enterprising
and useful city. Besides being decidedly the most
prominent and popular business mart of Georgia,
Augusta is rapidly growing to be one of the most im
portant market towns of the Southern States. Her
railroad connections, now running out in almost every
direction, are making her one of the most considera
ble depots of southern produce; and this central po
sition, under the auspices of good banks and a high
order of business energy and skill, is steadily work
ing out for her a commercial future, which must re
dound greatly to the prosperity of her own people and
to the advantage of all her surrounding country.
Already doos she afford facilities in many departments
of trade which few Northern towns, and none in her
own latitude, can surpass. Her cotton merchants,
her produce dealers, her grocers, her dry-goods men,
her manufacturers and her mechanics, are superior to
those of any city of her size from Maryland to Texas.
In some respects she has the advantage of even her
larger competitors of the seaboard-esyeeially so in
the important dep'artment of country produce. She
is fortunate moreover in possessing an active and en
terprising class of leading business men,---men who
are ambitious of a well-grounded success for their city,
and who spare neither pains nor the outlay of their
means to attain it. To back these laudable aims of
her capitalists, she also numbers a long list of vigi
lant, accommodating and skilful dealers in the various
branches of trade,-dealers who, acting upon the idea
that "a nimble sixpence is better than a slow shil
ling," present inducements that not only draw cus
tom from the country around, but tend materially to
esist the growth of the city's population and her
consequent proiinenee and usefulness. It is from
this point of view that we regard the beautiful city of
Augusta, in congratulating the people of Edgefleld,
and all others on the South Carolina side of the Sa
vannah who are convenient to her, upon their good
farttne in being thus advantageously located. Ot is
because they thus are in the enjoyment of facilities
wi-ieh few communities in the South, and none cer
tainly in Carolina, can claim to possess. Is there any
room, for instance, to compare the facilities offered by
Columbia with those of Augusta ? And if not-(as
every one must concede)-a contrast cannot surely be
instituted as to Camden, or Newberry, or Winnsboro,
or any other of our rising points of trade. Augusta
has overwhelmingly the advantage of them all wheth
er as to location, ability, or strength of population
and the people of Edgetield, railroad or no railroad,
have in her such a commercial emporium as no other
community in South Carolina enjoys. We do not
even except the surroundings of Charleston herself,
partly for the reason that they consist chiefly in
swamps and frog ponds; but even if in place of these
there were a population like our own, it would be only
in a few thiugs that their position would excel ours.
It nay perhaps be suggested that we overslaw old
Hamburg in these allusions to Augusta. Not at all.
llamburg and Augusta are one and the same city in
effect; and we are glad to know that the people of
the two places are willing to be regarded thus, of
course we mean as to all commercial purposes.
Whether our Hamburg friends are willing to this con
struction or not, is it not true that Augusta is gradu
ally absorbing both them and their trade ? But how
ever this may be, the two places are as one to us in
the remarks we here make. We have them both in
view, when we say that Etlgefield is better located, as
to market privileges, than any other district in South
Carolina. W e hope that Hamburg's lamp may hold
out to burn, particularly in the cotton-buying busi
ness; but i it should not, Augusta's certainly will.
As an estabilished southern city, her place upon the
map is likely never to be less prominent than it now
is. The chances are inany that it will become more
anal more consplicuous with every succeeding year.
Wet trust so at any rate, not only for the sake of the
advantages our people would thus have insured to
them as it were, but on account too of her own clever
population anti their most laudable spirit of proagress.
Let us hope then that the people of Edgefield will
not be slow to appreciate thmeir advantages in-this re
spect, and to profit by their use. In encouraging Au
gusta, we encourage a young city whose future pros
perity can butt act most favorably upon our own wel
fare ;-we help to create not only an emporium of
traade at our doors, but a place where we and our chil
drenm may occasionally hear anal see whatever of ex
cellence the fine arts may display or science may bring
to light, and that too without either loss of time or of
mioney ;-we assist in erecting (it may he) a southern
metropolis almost within view of our homes; and we
also thus show ourselves to our Georgia neighbors in
the light of brethren whose social and political affini
ties are not tranmelled by territorial limits, or at least
whose business negotiations are not held subject to
such metes and boundaries. Once mere then we say,
let us helpa Augusta, for in so doing we help ourselves
aind encourage southern progress.

of thte vessel may be perceived floating in gulf stream
water, while the other half is in thte common water of

WASHINGTON. NEWS--THE VOTE.
The Kansas Adnilision Bill, in an unobjectionable
shape, has passede "Senate by a vote of 33 to 25.
PUGH of Ohio votaIs agalnst it reluctantly, under in.
structions, or the vote would have stood 34 to 24.
The House, it is thought, will also pass the Bill, but
by a close vote. Were the Southern Americans true
to their section, there would be no doubt as to the re
sult; but they are no e Douglas, the Faithless,
has used his wholepowerto defeat the Bill, and,as was
to have been expeetid, has drawn from its support in
the House a sufieet squad of faithless Domocrats to
endanger its passage. It is hoped however that even
in spite of his maonstroes exertions the measure will
pass, and thus comparative quiet be restored to the
country. Senator Toombs of Georgia has given the
"little giant" a terrible castigation, beneath which he
is said to have completely succumbed.
If the Pugh amendment is offered in the House,
some southern men will vote against its adoption. It
is understood however that they will vote for the Ad
mission Bill eventually, with or without that amend
ment, which of course they are led to do by every
motive of prudence and patriotism. Such being the
understanding, we imake no comments.

1. The Texas Almanac for 1858 was compiled and
published by RicHiassoN A Co., of the Galveston
News, said ILcHAinaoN having years ago held the
rod of preceptor ino ur Edgefield Male Academy, and
whom many of us (hWpupils) still recall to mind with
feelings of respect and esteem.
2. The said Almanac is now before us abounding in
information, statistical, historical, biographical and
local, pertaining to the past and present of Texas.
3. And we proceed to excerpt therefrom such Items
as we can find room for.
4. If we observe. n'o method in serving them up, it
is because our friends of the Almanac have not done
so before us.
5. Texas has 43,878,847 acres of land, valued at
$61,863,202; so valued for purposes of taxation.
6. Texas has 113,217 negro slaves, 189,355 horses,
and 1,610,700 cattle.
7. Texas permits'the selling of vinous and other
liquors under bond for good behaviour and $250 per
annum license-tax fn every instance.
8. If a husband or a wife die in Texas, the survivor
continues in the use of the community property (if
not subject to debt) having only to furnish the Chief
Justice of the county with an inventory of said prop
erty; and this whether there are minors in the case

Parties may agree upon any rate as high as 12 per
cent. When more is reserved no interest can be

but are not considered profita'ale, being very destruc

11. There are onehundred and sixteen counties in
the State of Texas. i'
12. "Every species of soil adapted to every species
of production may be found in this State," is the
Almanac's very general remark.
13. The health of Texas is generally pretty fair,

Nothing perhaps conduces more to the happiness
and well being of a people than a healthy sound car
rency. All other matters may be properly adjusted
and adapted to the real necessities of men, and yet,
derangments in money matters may blast the fairest
hopes and brightest prospects. This has been proven
to us Again and again, and although we have been
near ruin's door, not only since last fall, but often be
fore that time, in consequence of the fluctuations in a
deficient currency, yet we still continue to pursue the
same unsuccessful course with but little alteration or
change. When we retrospect the past, what can we
hope for in the future but desolation and wide spread
ruin, without a permanent change in our pecuniary
matters. But a few years since, and it was a very du
bious question with many whether the State Bank
should be continued or not; but that excitement soon
subsided and instead thereof a mania In favour of the
formation of new Banks sprang up almost in every
section of our State. So much did the peopleget in
favour of Banks that had not a timely check been
given, there might have been ere long, a Bank at eve
ry Court House in the State. About the year 1820,
the spirit in favour of Banks had gone so far in the
State of Georgia that almost every merchant of note
had a Bank. The result was that In a few years sub
sequent to that time many of the merchants and their
Banks, with many farmers, were bankrupts; and we
think it very propitious indeed, that a timely check
has been given to the formation of new Banks in our
State. We plainly see that even now our weal or woe
is at the mercy of the Banks.
Nothing could perhaps more effectually produce
that state the most to be dreaded than permanent and
lasting derangements in the Banks. This is fully
proven to us by the recent fluctuation that has taken
place in pecuniary matters. Many of the strongest
men have not been able to withstand its devastating
effects. Knowing then as we do, the contingency
which rests upon almost every thing in consequence
of the very precarious and uncertain condition of the
Banks, what shall we do? Tear down the Banks? I
would answer, this should not be done precipitately
or in haste. I would give a specified time to all to
prove their solvency and at the expiration of that
time, all that were found by a thorough investigation
of their real condition to be defective or insolvent
should be dispossessed of their charters.
To add facilities to the transaction of business and
the conveying of money from place to place, I have
always been in favour of a State Bank and Branch
Banks of the State at every important place of trade,
ntwithstanding there are many and very serious ob
jetions to such a Bank. I think a well conducted
Bank of this kind might be made to contribute essen
tially to the revenue of the State. But to place it in
the power of any man or set of men to use three pa
per dollars to one in specie, and many of them no
doubt not only seven to one, (as the President states)
ut much more, is unjust, unequal and absurd in the
But this is not all, these men have it in their power
to puit our all in jeopardy,' and' bring upon us the
greatest calamity whenever they see proper, as has
been recently proven by their suspension.
How it is possible for any one, after being informed
of the real condition of the Banks, to say that he has
entire confidence in the solvency of the Banks we
know not. It is really startling to read the accounts
given us of the Banks by able writers. It is enough
to arouse every man to action, to see his imminent
We shall not oppose any man for voting against the
Banks. We have no need of but one Bank, and that
should be the State Bank. This could be made to
supply a sufficient amount of currency to answer all
our purposes, and the State be much benefitted by the
interest of the money in use. Those Banks that have
withstood the storm of suspension and have continued
all the while to pay out the coin, certainly deserve pat.
rona;e; but we say unless the Banks can be better
conducted than hitherto-Tear down the Banks.

The circumstances of the case are as follows:
It seems that Jacob Kitchen and one Herrin had
an altercation about some matter, when Whit
field Kitchen, the son of Jacob Kitchen, came
out of a room near by and made an attempt to
stab his father. His step-mother met him, and
prevailed on him to shut up his knife, and told
his father to go off, which he did, to the kitchen.
The son, however, and Herrin, pursued him, and
stabbing fight ensued, between the father and
son, and Herrin gathered up a cudgel and struck
the father. as his son left him, the son inflicting
a desperate stab and Herrin a blow with the club
of which he died in a few minutes. The son al
so received a wound in the chest, from his fa
