It was our good fortune to hear this distinguished
orator in Augusta, Friday last, tpon the occasion of
delivering his famous Address on the Life and Char
seter of OGostE WAusrNaToN. An immense audi.
ence of ladies and gentlemen, filling the spacious
Presbyterian Church of that City to its utmost ca
pacity, attested by their presence and rapt attention
their high appreciation of the noble orator and his
more noble theme. We do not remember to have
witnessed, at any time. a scene in whieh the fascina
tions of rhetoric more completely swayed the hour.
Arriving late with a friend, we were only able to ob
tain a seat in the remotest corner of the building,
having then between ourselves and the speaker the
great bulk of the assemblage. Yet such was the per
fect stillness which prevailed, the almost breathless
silenee with which each hearer drank in every portion
of the address, that scarcely a single word or accent
escaped us. It was a high degree of decorum, eviden
cing at once the excellent material of the brilliant as
semblage and the magic powers of the man who thus
held them enchained for the space of two full hours.
The receipts of the afternoon considerably exceeded
one thousand dollars, all of which, in conformity with
Mr. EVERETT's liberal purposes in the matter of the
Mount Vernon purchase, is to be placed at the discre
tion of the Ladies' Mt. Vernon Assooiation. le has
thus already been the direct instrument of raising
over twenty thousand dollars in this hallowed cause
of the daughters of Washington; and he continues
unwearied and unflagging in his generous expendi
ture of time, talents, and personal trouble, for the ad
vancement of their suocess. That success, according
to a late dispatch from Richmond, Va., has boon ren
dored certain, and the title of the "predial shrine"
has been transferred to the incorporated Mt. Vernon
Association. To no single agency is this consumma
tion more largely attributable, than to EDWAntD Ev
rEatT's superb oration -and the consecrated uses to
which he has devoted it. In the record of the achieve
ment, his name will rank brighest in the constellation
so strangely called into existence by the fervor, and
perseverance, and love, and semi-inspiration, of " The
Southern Matron " and her American sisterhood.
Of the oration itself, the press has adopted the poli
cy of avoiding to speak with critical particularity;
and this doubtless with the tacit purpose of leaving it
an entirely fresh treat for each successive audience.
Sufficeo to say, that it is from beginning to end a rare
and entranoing array of oratorical gems, of "thoughts
that breathe and words that burn," of lofty senti
ments, of chastened tropes and figures, of living,
moving pen-paintings, all enhanced by a framework
whose every component part is drawn from the "well
of English undefiled." Criticism of course could lay
claws upon some of its featuresc, (upon what could it
not?) and carp at some seemingly important errors
of omission. But it would be graceless to do so, at
least now in the midst of the oration's run of applause
and in view of the rich fruits it is bearing in a cause
consecrated by the purity of woman's love and the
emotions of a grateful patriotism. The address will
soon be published, and then the tripod's acumen may
be allowed to test its sharpness to the full. But at
present, let the general meed of admiration stand un
reversod, unchecked. Let the distinguisbed orator,
with him brilliant performance, be cheered on, in his
virtuous mission. Another day will decide whether
the present public has been earriedaway by an unthink
ing furor, or whether its hoart-decision has not rather
f been consonant with the severest rules of taste. For
one, we acknowledge with delight the charmed influ
ences of the orator's power, and are indisposed, while
still under them as it wore, to take exception to one
or two supposed defects of manner or matter. Where
perfection is so nearly attained, the critics should take
to themselves the caution,
" Procul, procud este, profuai."
Kansas, after all the confidence of Southern men
in and out of Congress, has not been admitted under
the Lecompton Constitution. The defeat of the
measure is chargeable at last upon Southern men.
The Southern Americans preferred playing false tc
their section rather than vote with the Democracy
and hence the result.
Yet the measure has been so rejected by the House,
as to leave open no fighting issue, no disunion Isue,
It'was defeated by the' audiitii father ceme
which would throw back upon Kansas the settlemon1
of the whole matter. The Senate however has not,
and it is thought will not, accede to the Crittendee
plan of adjustment; and, as we learn from several
sources, there is a probability that Kansas & Lecomp.
ton will be ecarried through yet.
But it appears to be the feeling of southern me
now, that the whole Kansas turmoil has been a hum
bug, and that no issue of disunion should or cac
spring out of it. What then ? Are we to have nec
state-action from Texas, or from Alabamna ? 01
course not. No Southern man in Congress is sus
peted of even dreaming about such a thing. The
question is all a delusion, a fiasco. " There'. noth ing
Sin it." Vapor, and smioke, and empty thunrder, all.
So the end is not yet. lint it is coming in afe
years perhaps. How? Well, Seward will be elected
President, and then the South will certainly be off
So this is to be the next ground-work of agitation,
When the year 1860 shall roil around, then we shalI
see what we shall see. Probably it may be as little
prolific of disunion as the present annte doumini
But, to take the other view, abolitionism rmay carry
?the day, anarchy may stalk abroad with glaring eyes
and fanaticism may spring upon the temple of oui
Sliberties and tear it into rorty thousand pieces. 0

DEAR Sin: I notice an editorial in your last jour
nal and also an extract from the Evening Newit, in
both of which my name is used in a way which ro
quires a response from me.
I have answered the Evening News, and beg that
you will do me the justice to publish that answer
when you receive the News thatcontains it; and that
you will also give a place in your journal to this com.
I have no objections to-the publication of any quo
tation from any of my essays or speeches if it be done
fairly, and I set at defiance all " Yankeedom" to make
a handle of any thing which I have said or written to
place me in a false position before the people of South
Carolina. Mr. HALIiN quotes from my address de
livered to the South Carolina Institute, and published
in the Evening Keres, afterwards in De Bow's Review,
July, 1857, page 123. I would like very much to see
that Essay published entire in your journal, for I am
satisfied it would do me credit, and show that Mr.
HANLIN has made garbled statements.
Any one who will visit Graniteville, can see for
himself, how I appreciate female character, and what
I have done for the labouring people of South Caro
lina. Yours, respectfully, WM. GREGG.

TO LITTLE XAJNIE 3JE, IN HEAVEN.
" Birds of Paradise still long to fee
Baek to their natire natwwin."
Hast thou left us little darling,
Cherished flow'ret of our love?
Left us for " Our Father's Mansion,"
In the realms of light above I
Left us ore the dew of Heaven,
Innocence, had left thy heart,
Faded ere the world's false sunshine
Bade that holy dew depart.
Gone to join God's white-wing'd angels,
Happy, blessed little band,
Gone to sing pure love's evangels,
In the holy promised land I
Where the sunlight fadeth never,
Where no cloud can ever come,
Where the flow'rs bloom on forever
In God's own eternal home !
Yet e'en tho' the stroke full gently,
On the little Bower's heart,
That blighted its short spring-day blooming
With Death's blasting icy dart,
The parent stem that lent it being,
Out whose loving heart it grew,
O'er its loved one now is drooping,
And tears, the broken lower, bedew.
For her now, blest little angel,
Raise thy pure and holy hands,
In thy Father's sacred presence,
Where thy blessed spirit standp.
Pray for thy heart-broken parents,
Who cherished thee with fondest care,
And pray for all who here still love thee,
Angel, ever bright and fair!
From the Charlestun Evening News.
TO THE EDITOR OF EVENING NEW8.
KA.mu, March 30th, 1856.
Dun Sin-My attention has just been called
to an article in your journal of 20th inst.. call
ing on Mr. Sas. H. Tayloi fo'r an explanation of
certain quotations made by Mr. Hamlin, in an
swer to Gen. Hammond's speech, also, to your
paper of 22d with Mr. Taylor's reply, and some
remarks from you in reference to mvself.
As to my birth place, Mr. Taylor is right. My
father was a citizen of South Carolina during
the Revolutionary war, and was attached to the
militia as a soldier in the defence of Charleston.
After its surrender, on his march as a prisoner
to Ninety-Six, in Abbeville District, he escaped
from the enemy and moved to the State of V'ir
einia, where I-was born. I have been a resi
aent of South Carolina for thirty-four years. I
do not know Mr. Hanmlin, and hiave' never had
any correspondence with him.
I presume he quotes from my address to the
South Carolina Institute. The essay was dcliv
eredin.sCharleston, and first published in the
EReliinj News. I am satisfied that its republi
cation entire would relieve me from the reproach
iihthat gentlemar's g'arbled quotations might
bring upon me, and afford conclusive proof of
my patriotic intentions and desire to promote
the best interest of my adopted State.
The essay abounds in proof that General H1am
mond's position is correct, and shows what a
powerful and independent people we should be
were we to add to our great staples the mechanic
arts, and greatness that abound amongst us, and
how entirely independent we could render our
selves of a people, who, since the delivery of
that address, have shown themselves to be our
You wvill find the essay republished in Dellow's
Review, July, 1851, page 123.
In page 13:3, 1 use the following language:
" From the best estimates that I have been able
to make, I put down the white people, who ought
to work, and who do not, or wh'lo are so employ
ed, as to be wholly unplroductive to the State, at
one hundred and twenty-five thousand."
In this estimate, 1 intended, of course, to in
clude male and female, old and young, all the
country people, who obtain from the soil a mere
living and no surplus, besides the middle and
educated classes, who would be stimulated to
action by the introduction of other branches of
industry than planting cotton. That class would
embrace those who are educated at our military
schools, to lit them for carrying on the arts and
commerce of our State, who now have to eni
grate t'o other Stattes to seek employment. Every
cotton factory operative calls into action at least
three others, to carry on the v'arious branches of
industry that spring from that source.
Mr. Hamlin couples the above quotations with
another passage in the essay, (page 135) where
I speak of our poor sand hill population who
occupy the barren lands of the State, and who
are in reality but little in advance of the Indian
of the forest. They constitute but a small por
tion of our white population, and being almost
wholly uneducated, would be elevated and made
usefu llby factory employment.

"We have been called upon to state that the
duel which was to havc beeni fought at WVest
Point yesterday between B~en Lane Posey, Esq.,
and samuel G. Rteid, did not take place, owing
to the refusal of the challenging party, (Mr. Po
sey,) to agree to the terms proposed by Mr. Reid.
The weapons chosen by Mr. Reid were Mississip
pi rifles, and thme distance thirty paces."
The Montgomery Advertliser of the 9th inst
sy:"'Alas, what perils do environ
The man who meddles with cold iyon'"
" The duel did not conme off. The parties
wre all on the ground-Mr. Posey aent his chal
lenge. Mr. Reid accepted, to fight with Missis
ippi rifles, at thirty paces. Mr. Posey declined
.to fight with rifles, and it was thereupon notified
that Mr. Reid and his friend would be on the
ground at 6 A. M., Thursday, the 8th inst., with
rifles, to give him the redress ho had demanded,
and that failing to appear they would feel dis
charged from any further obligation to remain.
Tey had previously refused to receive any fur
ther communication from him. They went to
the ground, waited one hour, and returned. Mr.
Posey attempted to re-open 'negotiations ;' they
refused to iotice any communications from him,

Augusta, Apr 12 tf 14
State of South Carolina,
W HEREAS the last General Assembly of
South Carolina, with a wise forecast and a
liberal regard for the public welfare, based as it is
so essentially on the good sense and virtue of her
citizens, enacted a law by which the Commission
ers of Free Schools are authorized to establish a
Normal School in the city of Charleston, to which
the country districts will be entitled to send a cer
tain number of pupils.
And whereas the enterprising Board of St. Phil
lips and St. Michael's have now in operation. at
their excellent public school in the city, weekly
exercises, which will serve to exemplifyr the bene
fits of such an establishment.
Now, therefore, I recommend to the several
Boards of Commissioners of Free Schools in the
State to appoint, at their next quarterly meeting,
on the fourth Monday in A pril, and depute one or
more of their number to visit the said public school
(St. Phillips street) in Charleston, at their conve
nience, so as to be able to report the result of their
observation at the'quarterly meeting, on the fourth
Monday of October next.
Also, I do hereb'y invite all the Teachers of Free.
School-scholars throughout the State to coime apd)
see for themselves how the .said Public School is
conducted,' and what are the uses of a Normal
As the expenses of such a visit might put it out
of the power of many to come, however much
they may desire it, I will venture to say for the
good citizens of Charleston, that the houses of
many residents will be opened to any Teacher who
shall be provided with a letter of introduction, or
with the certificates of the President and Secretary
of the Board of Commissioners at home. Failing
in tils, or in case a public house is preferred, It af
fords mec pleasure to announce that Mrs. Kennedy,
of the American Hotel, in King street, will, on ac
count of this Departinent, take care of any Teach
er of a Free school whso will deposit with her, his
or her certificates from the President and Secreta
ry of the District Board of Commissioners for
which he or she may be emp~oyed, from the first
of June to the fifth inclusive.
Furthiermiore, I appeal to the proper authorities
of the railrnads and other public conveyances, hy
means of which they must reach the city, to in
struct their several agents, upon the exhibition to
them of the said1 certiticates, to pass all such
Teachers of Free Schools, and one Commissioner
from each Board, going~ down fur the purpose
herein set forth, for one fare, going and returnmng.
I am assured that the Commissioners of Free
Schools for St. Phillips and St. Michael's will take
pleasulre in atording every facility to the Teachers
ad others, to observe and profit by the improved
methods. Visitors will only have to apply to C.
G. MEMMINGER, Esq., Chairman, or to any
mnember of the Board, at thme Public School h ouse,
in St. Phillips street, to he admitted at, the proper
A fixed time has been mentioned, from the first
to thme fifth Junec. Better for all parties, if it be at
all convenient, to adlopt this app~ointnment; but if
there be impediments to prevent any Teachers
from coming at that time, the Commiissioners will
receive them at any other time in May or June,
including Saturday as one of the days.
