RE-OPENING THE SLAVE TRADE.
The Augusta Dispatch and other ultra jour

an article in the Richm-mridI Eii.tinirer in oppiu)
tion to re-opening the save tr.ide, ia wirich,
anong other things, th:t paper sas:

Now, we countbasi inability to discover treason

fore further damige is inflicted upon that unity
of sentiment now so happily prevailing at the
South. Why agitate longer? No plan has been
proposed toacconplish the object suggested-no
p lan can be d4-vised. The Constitution and
aws art-opposed to it. Yon cannot repeal or
modify them. Not only is it impossible, under
the laws, to introduce iarev, but It is equally so
as.to African apprenticas. That has been de
termined by the law oti. ers of an Administration
as friendly'to the S.,uth, confessedly, as we have
ever had. Surely it wiili not be proposed to re
sort to surreptitious means. With custom houses
in the hands of Oflicials sworn not to wink at
illicit traflie-with revenue cutters .long our
coast, watching every bay and practicable harbor
-to say nothing of our cruisers and those of
other nations-capital would never adventure
risk so great to property and honor. But, be
sides all this, the people among whom it is pro
posed to introduce these slaves or apprenticesdo
not want them-are opposed to the whole scheme
-and will continue their opposition. The whole
affair was regarded from the first as an imprae
ticability, and was started for political effect. It
failed as to that, and we beg the press not to
make it a firebrand to consume the ligaments
that bind in brotherhood the Sjtztheru people.

AN UNFORTUNATE RENCOUNTER.
We very much regret to learn that a most unpleas
ant and almost fatal affray occured In Hamburg on
Saturdamy last between Maj. Gaunsan and his son
JToux GAIJ'DNsa and Mr. B. L. HA LL[, three of our
most valued and respected citizens.
A friend furnishes us with the following particulars
of this sad affair, which we publish as given:
" There emane near being a fatal rencounter here on
Saturday afternuoon. It seems that there was a difli
culty betwun Mr. S. W. Ganonsu and Mr. 13. L. HALL
-and Mr. HALL. had knocked Mr. Uannmarmn down,
when Joux Uiuosmut drew a "Repeater" and shot
HALL. four or livibtimes, giving him as many wounds
-fortunately none of themi are thought to be dan
gerous. It is a miraceo that Mr. HALIL was not killed
upon the spot as the parties were separated but a few
feet when the shots were fired."
A MELANCHOLY SUICIDE.
On Monday the 14th inst., Mr. WxsrL.Yv WVare,
of this District, shot himself with a' shot-gun, caus
ing instantaneous death. Hie must have placed the
muzzle of the gun in his mouth and pulled the trig
ger with his toe, as he had one shoe off. The load
mutilated the mouth In a frightful manner and
lodged in the back of the head. The jury of inquest,
we understand, ware clearly convinced that it was
very evidently a case of intentional suicide, and
rendered their virdict accordingly.
Mr. Waysan was an interesting young man, having
just attained his twenty-first year with bright hopes
and glowing prospects ahead-of highly esteemed
and worthy parentage, and being of an unassuming,
courteous and kind disposition was well beloved by~
a large circe of friends. With his afilicted relatives
we sympathise in their sad bereavement.
TEE CELEBRATION AT GRANITEVILLE.
Our good friends of this flourishing little Town,

gentlemen may be expected. A great time is expected.
And we hope to be there.

This distinguished gentleman proposes to give Lec
tures in this Village, Thursday, Friday and Saturday

comes with the highest recommendations as being a
Lecturer of much "solid learning, ripe culture, and
manly vigor ;" and the Rev. Mr. MonscoeKc, a celebra

speaking of his lectures, " They are written in an
easy, flowing style, and while sufficiently ornate to
gratify the taste of the most fastidious Rhetorical
Professor, they possess a simplicity that attracts even
thechildren of an audience."
His lectures everywhere are highly spoken of, and
represented as being mort instructive and interesting.
We hope our citizens will turn out en masse to hear
this certainly meritorious gentleman.

MINISTER TO ENGLAND.*
It was rumored in Washington on Thursday last,
that Judge Roosevelt, of New York, had been ap

pm The July No. of the Southern Culticator ia'
Mr. G. L. Px;, Agent, the man who keeps up
with all the important improvements of the age, has
just received a number of Dayton's Exhausters,
which we consider an invaluable requisite to all who
wish to put up and preserve Fruits, Vegetables, &e.,
in their natural state. 'The " Exchalttier" is a most
simplo invention, easily underitood and managed, and
one that cannot fail to answer the purpose for which
it wA intended, viz: the removing of ill air from
the can or jar that would otherwise come In contact
with the Fruit or other article desired to be preserved.
It is certainly a complete arrangement, and just the
thing that every good housewife in the land ought to
be in possession of. And we are of the opinion that
any of the "lords of creation" who fail to supply the
"gude wife" with the " Exhauster" and a dozen or
two of the CalN*, is a close listed fellow, not worthy
of such delicaeies, (either now or in the dead of win
ter) as nice Peaches, Plums. Pears, Cherries, Black
berries, Green Corn, Pons, beans, Tomatoes, &c., &c.,
which, with the aid or the E.luatater, can be kept
for mouths, in perfect freshness'.
Those in want of the "E.cha ater" and Cats should
call on Mr. P. at an early day, as they are going off
in a hurry. -

"The village of Williameton contains a population
of near 700 inhabitants, celebrated for their morality
and liberality, as well as thrift and enterprise. They
have three Churches, several schools, and various ele

inducements to the citizens of the low country, who
have been going North and elsewhere for pleaure or

that4he practice of Southerners pouring out their
money on extravagant Hotels in the North will be

ANOTHER LETTER FROM TE KOUNTAINS.
Pia-cts DisTnicT, S. C., June 23, 1858.
MI. EDnTon:-The last month has not been very
prolific of news in this part ofithe country,-nothing
snusual or startling has tranapired. And I thank
[leaven that-such is the cspse This last assertion
nay seem a little strange, coming, as it does, fro0
one who is constantly on the Qi viae for something
novel or thrilling with. which t..fill out a sheet now
Lad then for the benefit of your. readers. And why,
it may be asked, should a correspondent, or any one
else, be thankful that there Is no news? It oes
that all is reell. It might sometimes inply a state of
things bordering on stagnation. But at the same
time, it argues an absence of storm, and flood, and
conflagration; of postilence, and death, and " grim.
visaged war;" of robbery, and murder, and suicide.
Instead of those evili, so shocking to humanity, peaseo,
and health, and all the sweet charities of life
"Love's intellectual law !"-reign supreme.
In 1854, the Columbia and Hamburg Railroad was
in agitation. This was intended to constitute a linu
in an Air-Line Road between New -York and Now
Orleans. The project, however, wits a failure. But
now, strange to say, the same idea is about to be car
ried out by an Air-Line Railroad connecting Ander.
sonund Atlanta, and crossing'the Savannah, or the
Tugalo, more than one hundred miles above Augusta
This line is to be continued from Newberry, across
tho country, in the direction of Chester and Charlotte.
At the latter place, it will branch off towards Dan.
ville, Va., where it will intersect the East Tennessee
and Virginia Railroad. By reference to the Map, it
will be seen that those three links would enable the
traveller to pass from the great Northern Mart to its
rival at mouth of the Mississippi, withoutever devia.
ting very far from a bee line. Now there are thou.

to seek smumer quarters every season. Many ol

Railroad would take thoi within;tn or twelve miles
of Tallulah Falls, where, according to impartial trav
ellors, you may witness a grandeurbf cliff and cataracts
superior to that of Niagara, a beauty of landscape
equal to any thing of the sort bepeath Italian skies,
In short, all of our watering places and summe
resorte, together with the surrounding country, would
be made to flourish and prospc. In a fOr years,
iuch of our water power, now running to waste
would be made to turs an honest penny by beini

would necessarily onsuo. The genial glow of this
prosperity in the "up.country" wiuld be felt in Char,

By the way, a theory in connection with this sami
Air-Line Railroad has been advanced, which is rathei
fuscinating to us back-woodsnon, and withal quit
plausible and original. It is briefly this. Natur
has designed that a portion 'of our' Southern State.
should supply the world with' cotton -'for all time t<
come. In performing this Hlerqulean task frought
as it ever will be, with so much' of profit to them

not to ho expected that those States should raise stocl

acts as they were found to exist. I know there are
ome-and I am sorry to say, not a fear, but princi

ong homilies In praise of the "whole soulod sons of

in mind that the poor simple-minded man that thawe
the frozen viper soon had reason to repent of his geo
orosity. My Bible (which I invariable adopt as m
rule of action) teaches me that "he who providet
not fur his own houshold has denioe the faith an
is teorae than an iafdel."
Another inducement to hold the sessions of the Al
lanta Medical College during the summer season wa
found in the fact that at that period of the year healt
is to be found at its ultima thule in this city, whil
the most of large cities and towns are suffering unde
the fatal epidomiscs so prevalent of late years in th
Southern states. Atlanta, the seat of the College, I
located in a high mountainous country, being blesse

It has been said by the enemies of the College
