TRRIS AFFAIR IN FLORIDA.
We received, yesterday, the following letter
from Tampa, in which is recorded one of the
greatest outrages that ever disgraced a country
of law. We have no personal knowledge of the
writer, and the reader will form his own opinion of
its reliability. From recent iidications froim that
quarter, we entertain but little doubt of the cor
rectness of his statenents. We cannot believe,
however, that mere political hostility is sufficient
to drive men to such desperate extremities.
Touching the appeal of the writer for protee
tion, we can only refer hii to the Governor of
Florida, whose dity it is to crush out, by aid of
the military if necessary, all such diabolical pro
ceedings and their authors.

LYNCH LAW IN XARYLAND--SLAVE PROP
EET!-TAE AND PEATHERS.
Thze slave ownecrs of Kent county, Md., have,
within a year or two, sutfred heavy losses by
the runninig off of slaves, not less than sixz y
having escaped in 1806, and a large numlber
since. These mysteriotis escapes created ino
little excitement. Some five years ago a slave
belonging to Dr. Davidson, of Queen Anne's
county, ran away, but was apprehenaded in ief.i
ware and ret uned to his miaster. A forged
piass or certificate of freedom, it is sitated, was
found upon him, evidently disguised, whch lie
stated was furnished him by a inmi namedci Jas.
L. Bowers, of Kent county, and who was well
known to enitertain strong anti-slavery senti
ments. Bowers was subsequendly arrested, and
tried, but for want of sutticient evidence was
acquitted. Since then suspicion has been dj
rected against him, from the fact that his imnme'
diate neighborhood tuffered to a considerable
extent from the loss of this kind of property,
.and on Wetnesday night of last week a number
of citizens, setting all fornms of law at defiance,
proceeded to his residence and tarred and feath-.
- ered him. The particulars are given in the
Kenat News, as follows :
" From ten to thirty personis were enigaiged in
. it, one of whom succeede~d in decoying Mr.
Bowers from his house between the hours of I10
and 12 o'clock by pretending to have brokena
his carriage, which required assistance to m.,nd
,it. Upon Mr. lJ.'s arrival at the road, (which is
distant about one hundred yards from his house,)
he was seized and secured by the party who
quickly proceeded to place him in a carriage to
be conveyed to a plaice previously selected for
the purpose. His screams were soon heard by
his wife, who immediately started to the pilace
-whenethey proceeded. and camecup with the party
before they had carried oil' lier husband. Hier
* fears for his safety were f artially relieved by
being told that lie would receive no personal
violenace, but that they intended to take him to
jail for some offence he had committed. Mirs.
Bowers returned homeo whilst the posse carried
him to a woods some haltf mile distant, where
he was stripped, tarred and feathered, aind af'ter
-promising to leave the State within twenty-four
hours lie was permitted to depart.
"They then wenit to the house of a free negro
niam ed Butler, and iniquired if a certaini negro
womnan nameiLd Tillison was there. To this ques
tion he promptly responded no-the house was
then entered and the inadividual soon fonnd,
whereupon they admiinistered to hinm a severe
flogging. The woman who has a strong infu
stoan of the Anglo saxon, was taken some dis
tance from the house, and the upper portion of
her person subjeeted to a similar application of
tar and feathers.. This womana, it is alleged,

.to be about fifty years of age, dwarfish in ap
pearance, scarcely weighaiing fifty pounids, and as
e~ettdto excite a great influ enace upon the
aa.jre superstitious portions of blacks. Sihe leads
a migratory life, and is usually found in the
houses of free negroes. Her advenit in this
county has been followed by thec escape of
slaveu, on more than one occasioa.
" The commoni report and statement in justi
facationa, are, that nothing but a sense of wrong

alop~t the course pursued. That the frequent

'IRON. M. L. BONIAM.
Our member, General BosNIAx, reached his resi
deuce near this place on Saturday last, in fine health
and spirits. We welcome him to the quiet and repose
of his pleasant home. After the exciting scenes of
the late Congressional Session, a season of retirement
and leisure must be peculiarly grateful.
It will be seen that the Ladies of the Episcopal
congregation in this place hold a Fair at Masonic &
Odd Fellows' Hall on Friday evening next. A very
racy and agreeablo festival may be certainly antiCi
pated; and as the purpose Is to aid the weakest de.
nomination in the place, it is hoped that the good
folks of all the other congregations will generously
lend the help of their countenances and quarters on,
the occasion. A variety of music will add its charms
to the evening.
The best lot of bacon we have ever known to
be offered in this market may now be found at the
store of the Messrs. Hnisox in this town. It is a
sight worth seeing,-large, sound, clean Tennessee
bacon,-hams, shoulders, and middlings. Those who
wish to supply thomselves with a superfine article,
would do well to call very soon if they would not
miss this fortunate opportunity to season the pot with
meat of the very nicest quality.
DR. T. D. MATHEWS.
This gentleman has delivered several lectures in
our town under very disadvantageous circumstances.
It was scarcely known throughout the place that his
lectures were to come off, and a good many persons
were al.ent. This (Tuesday) evening the Doctor
will deliver another one of his interesting series. le
has received high commendation in other places, and
those who have heard hinm here express themselves
highly pleased with both the manner and matter of
his performances. We trust that the gentlemanly
stranger will be comlimentedl this last night of his
series with a full house. It will speak badly for us,
to suffer a literary lecturer of acknowledged intelli
gence to pass from us discouraged and perhaps
chagrined. Lot it not be so. The lecture this even.
ing is upon a most interesting historical topic, and
ali will be improved-by hearing it. Besides this, Dr.
MAvutaws is a South Carolinian, of amost respectable
low-contry family, and is earnestly ambitious o~f
showing that the South can produce her owa lectu
rers as well ae.,her own orators, statesmen and poets.
A BOUNTEOUS SEASON.
Within the last day or two this vicinity has been
blessed with profuse showers. The land has been
thoroughly soaked, and the early corn may be pro.
nounced safe. There now remains but little doubt
that this erop in Edgefield will be a most abundant
one, perhaps unexampled in the history of the district.
From all piarts the reports are highly favorable to this
conclusion; and these tatter rains, general as they
seem to have been, must render the caloulation next
to certain. An old farmer's saying Is: "'if your
grond is too wet to plow on the 4th of July, look
out for a fine yield of corn." Such is the case now.
Let us then praise His name who giveth all things
liberally, and look forward with thankfulness to the
good tIme'a cmnig. And let our corn-sellers slacken
their grip upon the curucrib key, and sell to the
eey ac duly tuodified rates.
The best fruit ealls in use may now be had at. Mr.
I. L. Psxy's store ill this place. They are of earthen
ware, and so arranged as to be at once simple and
certain. Without having tried themn-(they are a
new ilsnprovementt-we venture the asertion that
they are the mtost perfect fruit can thus far invented.
At he same time, they :are not miore costly than the
til cant, or at any rate buit little mnore 5o.
The best fruit to put up in Gana is the peach. Out
of twenty such tried two years ago, we lost hut one.
The peach is also the nmost delicious fruit to preserve
thus. No nice house-keeper should he without a sup
ply of this delicacy for winter use. The present sea
son is a great one for peaches, and Mr. Praxx has the
cans to put thpm up in. Those, who fail to make use
of them, are depriving themselves of the cheapest and
best means of furnishing a most delicious winter lux.
cry at but slight cost.
SHOES AND MATCIIECS.
Two of the crying wants of the present damy, are good
shoes and good lucifer-matches. What has get into the
world alt of asudden, that it has become so bard to get a
good shoe or a good lucifer-match ? Will not some
one of our dealers set his head to the very useful tack
of laying in, with the next season's goods, a lot of
genuine old-time shoes, and a thousand gross or so of
unequivocal lucifer-utatches? The people would net
grumble so much about other things, if they could
only get good shoes and good lucifbr-mautches. Among
the goods of life, there are few things more necessary
to comfoet and good humor, than good shoes and
good lucifer-matches. And we again say, who of our
merchants will solemnly vow thlat hereafter, if it be
possible, the people of Edgelield shall have a chance
at good shoes and good lucifer-matches.
BLACKBERRY BR IANDY.
The most singular substane submitted to our edi
torial inspection lately, is a bottle of brandy, made by
Dr. Tincus of this village, of blackberries. It is a
limpid, colorless liquid of most agreeable odor and
highly pungent taste. It seems to be a decidedly
butter brandy than that nmds of the peach, and there
is no mora dillhiulty in its manufsauture, It may be
that the blackberry will yet become one of our most
saluable natural productions. In itself, it is a health
ful, almost a medicinal berry. The cordial and jams
made of it, are thought worthy of a place among the
various preparations of the medical dispensary; nd
we do not see why blackberry brandy should not also
becom a most useful as well as a very genial drink.
W e trust our enterprixing friend will push the matter
sn to success. He might thus pierheps mark an era
i the history of stimulating beverages. As at present
bested, a bushel of blackberries will make a full half
gallon of first rate liquor without the foreign aid of
strychtine, or any other poisonous agent.
Dr. J. HI. 3., of the Dark Corner, has deposited on
cr table two of the finest beets we have ever seen,
rory large, very smooth, very solid, and very perfect
ivery way. It must be an excellent garden where
hese beautiful beets grew. The piney woods have at
ength been surpassed.

COMPLI ENTARs DINNER,
A great dinner is to be given on the 22nd inEtant
at Beach Island, in honor of Senator lAHNOxNo's re
turn home. The entire Carolina and Georgia delega.
tions in Congress are invited to attend. Large and
munificent preparations are making, as we under
stand, to entertain an immense number. From the
well-known spirit and hospitality of the Beech Island
era, we lrediet a glorious day. It will be a rich treat
enough, to hear our distinguished senator speak to
his beloved constituents in 4 thoughts that breathe and
words that burn." But when, superadded to. this,
a noble feast shall grace the day, and the presenco of
a high-strung auditory animate the grove, while
strains of exciting music shall blond all hearts in har
mony and enthusiasm, may we not safely recken up
on a really delightful occasion. Who will go?-may
we not rather aik-" who will not go !" It will be a
pleasure to us all, to join in this demonstration of
applause to the civic bero in whose honor the dinner
is given. It niay be too that we shall there see rome
of the other Congresmoaen of the two States. We
have heard with pleasure that General BIsUNiAM will
probably speak. So perhaps will one or more of the
members from Gcorgin. Let us then go down like an
army with banners. and eijivy the ample hospitality
of our generous Beech-Irland neighbors.

it in print. Perhaps no other State in the Union can
boast a more perfect history of her colonization and

THE CELEBRATION AT GRANITEVILLE.
We visited Granitovillo on last Friday, and had
scarcely emerged from the gloomy shades of the
Piney woods, when the rattling of the drum and the
shrill note Of the fife gave us token that fell prepara
tion was going on for a successful celebration of the
glorious Fourth. As we crossed the bridge, the
" Washington Guards" and the "Graniteville Volun
teer Company," equipped in all die accoutrements of
glorious war, marched in'eolumn by us. The gallant
bearing of the men seemed to imply that they were
perfectly indiffe.rent whether die voice of the people
was "still fur wrar" or "inclined towards peac,"
full well they appeared to be prepared to fight in the
field or "dance to the lascivious measures of the
lute."-And herewe may say that the only deficiency in
the preparation, for It was a deficiency, despite the
excessive icat of the we~ther, was that thgro was no
chance given for these ndn to exhibit their grare in

Mnm. Enuoin:-I send you for publicntion the fol
lowing well-mecrited tribute to Gov. Haxxosn. from
th~e Wahlingtoun Correspondence of thie New Orleans
Crecent. It will be observed lie draws a contrast
striking indeed between the dignity of the sentimuents
giren utterance to by our Senator and "the garish
finahes of hasty resentment"' made use of by Douo
L~AS, Tooxas, SrEWAnn, ]Ii.E and others. These
few well-timed remarks of Senator H.ixosmi reclaim
for a while the ancient reputation of the Americnn
Senate, and light up for a moment, in resl.lendeniit
col-rs, the nmemory of tie days when the Senate
House resounded with the clash of such inutelleet.. as

for popular favor always indulged in uy the leaders
of a turbulent faction.

Senator Hammond in a shurt speh the most sensi

Mn. EDITOa.-As it may be of somie interest in these
dull times to many of your readers, I propose giving
you a short sketch of varicus items, noted In a trip of
some seven hundred miles to the great West.
I left the Augusta depot at half east 2 o'clock, A.
Mon the morning of thq 1ith June, and after a dull
monotonous ride of a few~ h urs, was again ushered
Into the beaming light 6f da-when the variegated
scenery of the country,' eihlanced occasionally by
sprightly conversatIon, va:Iished all, the effects of
Many of the Towns and Villas situated on this road
leading from August. to Atlanta, exhibit an order and
taste creditable to the proprietors. Many additions
tere made at most of them to our comnpany; and,
Fromn an occasional remark, I was impressed with the
ds that most of them were en t(geir way to Atlanta
or the purpose of witnessing the execution of End
ord J. Crockett, on die 18th nIt., for a: participation
a the murder of an old gentleman by the nameo of
,andrum, near Atlanta, on or about the 8th day of
pril last; and strange as it may sound to feminine
sars, there were many of their sex In these additions,
ith the same thing in view a 'those of the sterner sex.
Arriving at Atlaata, anudhauing but a few moments
,o detain there, I oeecupied my time in promenading
he spacious Depotat this place, and i:ong many oth.
ticulars of the murder of Landrum and confession of
Crockett, which I think would be eminently more ben.
eficial to parent and child than the desire of witness
ing the execution of a criminal, as there are many
good moral lessons contained in said pamphlet fur
both old and young. The work.can be had of Wm.
Kay, of Atlanta, by remitting 30 cents for the book
and 3 cents to pay the postage thereon.
After leaving Atlanta, I had a pleasant ride of 138
miles to Chattanooga, on the Tennessoe River, where
we stopped for a little while to refresh the inner man
with a hearty supper at the Crutchfield House ; which
which being over, we again wended our way by din
moonlight down to the River and around the base of
Lookout Mountain, which had quite a picturesque ap
pearance. After passing this, exhausted nature tried
to assert her supremacy, which was, with about equal
chances of success, continued through the night. Be
Ing somewhat refreshed by the dawning of day, if
not by sleep, busy curiosity was again on the alert in
viewing the surface of the country, the crops, Ac.
We were now in the Northern portion of the State of
Alabaua. The surface of the country was almost an
unbroken plain of land, mostly in cultivation, and of
a quality of superior production. Although many
large fields gave unmistakable evidence of lung ealti
jation, yet roost of them, where anything like culti
vated, had fine crops of corn and cotton upon them.
The scenery and face of the country changing so
rapidly after leaving this garden spot of Alabama,
though still passing many towns'on the road, anxiety
began to manifest itself in the desire to exchange the
original ticket for a card with the distances and names
of the towns thereon ; though the desire wan never
gratified from Chattanooga to Memphis, a distance of
312 miles; and chance only of enquring of a know
ing passenger or of the conductor, was the guide.
Whether Sodom and Gomorrah were passed, I have
not yet learned.
This is a desideratum so important to the traveller,
that I think the managers of the road should forth
with attend to it, and have such cards, as all other roads
have, for the convenience, and I might say, company
of the traveller.
Passing this great Sahara of unknowns, I arrived
at Memphis on Friday the 18th, where I put -up at
the Gayoso House. After am refreshing night of de
lightful repose, I arose somewhat late the next morn
ing, and to my great disappointment, found that the
Hon. Mr. Quitman of Mississippi, who had taken
rooms there, had departed on a boat before I loft my
room, as I much desired to make his acquaintance,
both on account of his chivalrous bearing on the field
of battle and in the halls of legislation. I was soon
repaid however, in a great degree, by coming in con
tact with one of the junior partners of the well known
house of G. Z. Waldron & Co., of Charleston, S. C.,
who, in coinpany with myself, were shown from base
ment to attiek of this mammoth House, the Gayoso,
through the kind courtesy of Mr. Cockrell, jr., son of
This House in many points certainly has few, if
any superiors in the United States,-being four sto
ries high, and covering an area of one acre of land;
and for elegance of furniture, symetry of arrange
meat and majesty of appearance, certainly has no
uperior in the world. It is situated upon an eleva
ted point of land, within a short distance of the great
father of waters, which at this time was within an inch
or t&ro of high water mark, to which it no doubt would
have attained and perhaps surpassed, but for the
breaking of a levee some few miles above Memphis,
on the Arkansas side of the River. The river, it is
supposed, Is forty miles wide at this point. But to
the Gayoso again. It is capable of accommodating
eight hundred persons, and cost nearly a quarter
million of dollars. The carpets, curtains and up.
holstering are from the celebrated house of A. T.
Stewart, New York. The halls and sleeping rooms
are all covered with rich tapestry, Birussels and ta pest
ry v lvet carpets-and the parlors with English me
daIS carpets ; anddn the ladies parlor is a center
table, carved with great artistic skill, from solid rose
wood, that cost six hundred dollars. The bedsteads
are all of solid mahogany. The dining room is 172
by 40 and 25 feet high, and consequently contains
173,000 Cubic feet, and the walls are rich in fresco
paintings, executed with admirable..skill and design.
While npon the dining room, it is but just to remark
that there is a great discrepancy between the prompt.
ness, efficiency and system carried on here and in
similar first class Hotels in other portions of the
country, which I suppose will ho remedied by the
energetic proprietor at no distant day. There are
several other good houses in the City, though I
would recommend the weary traveller to the "Gayoso,'
where no doubt, ho will he as well cared for as at any
other place. I close this episode of the "Gayoso,'
w'ith the simple remark, that Mr. Knowlton, formerly
of Charleston, S. C., is at the head of the office.
whose urbanity of manners and known qualities of
eart, alwaps ensure a hearty reception; and weho~
taste and judgemaent it is hoped will he directedl to ant
important want in the said-to-be Reading Roermi,
where you only find a multifarious mass of businen
cards of- no interest to the traveller.
After leaving Memphis upon the Mississippi and
Tennessee Ratil Road, I had a pleasant ride of 50
miles to Sardis in Panmla County, passing through nt
rib section of country, well itnproved, and which.
but a few years ago., was inhabited only by the red
ma, the hear, panther, deer and snake. Speaking
of snakes, we witnessed one of the must singular
snake murders a few miles from Sardise, that has ever
occurred among the whole of sntakedome. Riding
along at a rapid pace in a two horse buglry with a
near relation, I desied a large black snake a fe-u
paces ahead of us, to which I directed the attention
of the driver, with a view of running the wheels over
him, but the aim was missedl by snaky's withdrawing
ia hea.-d upon the appromach of thce front wheel, hut
thrusting it between the spokes of the hind wheel.
which, going with considerable velocity, caught himt
about centrally, and whirled him around and around
fr some time, lacerating his head at every revulutinn
against the front wheel, axle, &c., until death was the
cnsetuenrc. I doubt, whether, among all the "snake
stories," this has a parallel in history.
And now, Mr. Editor, let us take a short review of
the crops anid cltose for the present. The corn and
cotton up to Chattanooga, isonty tolerable; wheat sor
ry, oats not worth cutting. In North Alabama, South
Tennessee and North Mississippi, they have been
flooded with rain latterly, the consequene of whicl.
is, generally, foul crops-some of which are 'lost.
The oat crop upon the whole route, is almost a com
plete fuilure-very few indeed even trying to save seed.
I expect to start in a few days, for the central per.
tion of the State, from whence, perhaps, you may
agin hear from nme. PANOLA.

LIES WRITEN TO NY DEAR ANGEL WIFE.
Oh ping to me, lovo and when you sing,
Oh let it be a joyous lay,
For heaven knows how glad my heart,
When e'ar I hear you sing or play!
And though im absent now, my love,
Long, long weeks I've been away,
Yet still my hearts the same, love
My spirit hearkens to your lay.
But oh ! how lad I feel, love,
On this bright summer's day!
One kias!-one warm embrace, love,
Would glad my heart and make me gay.
But then I know you smile, love,
And often oz your knees you pray,
And even when you sing, love,
You think on me so fur away.
Then bless thee dear! my angel wife!
Nor from thy side I'll longer stray,
But to thy arms I'll ly, love,
With thee to laugh, to weep, to pray!
May heaven bless my dearest lure,
May heaven be her strongest stay !
When death shall separate us, love,
And when our mortal frames are clay;
Our spirits then shall meet above,
Where night shall never gloom the day;
Where sorrows ne'er shall come, love,
To mar our peace, or lead astray!
And where we shall be happy, loro,
Nor sigh, nor groan, nor wish, nor tear,
Shall over move our spirits, love,
Or mar our peace and quiet there!
And there you'll be an apgel, love,
As you are now an angel here!
But there you'll spend in praise, love,
A lie that now is spent in prayer!

" Another of those black-hearted., fiendish and
attrocious deeds which cry aloud to Heaven for
vengeance upon the perpetrators, has, from the
publicity which has been given to it among the
Mormon people reached us. The fourth wife of
a man living in the vicinity of Salt Lake City,
whose name for the present, I shall suppress
a young, amiable,-rehned woman, beloved by all
who knew her, somewhat superior to the common
mass, from the influence of early education-be
came impatient and heart-sickened at the ab
ject state of misery so rapidly gnawing the very
cords of her soul, and determined, if posible, to
make an effort to reach the camp of the army.
Her husband got some hint of it. He immedi
ately mounted his horse, rode to Brighains's of
fice, and asked of Brother Brigham what he
should do with her. Brigham told him. to cut
her throat, and thus save her from eternal dam-.
nation. The brute went home, and told the
popr woman to prepare to die. She, seeing the
earnestness of his manner, fell at his feet, beg
ging, praying and imploring him for mercy; but
he, while she was thus kneeling before him, took
her by the hair and cut her throat from ear to
DEATn By LIGHTSIN.-We learn from the
Winnsboro' Register., that Charley and'his wife
Kate, negroes belonging to Mr. Win. Wylie, of
Fairfield District, were killed by lightning on
Saturday afternoon last. They were in the field
at work, when the rain commenced falling, and
went into their own house for shelter. The man
threw himself across the bed, and his wife sat
down on the floor near his feet. The lightning
passed through the roof and killed them both.
KILLED nY Lian~xixa.-We regret to learn
that on Saturday the 26th ult. during a severe
thunder storm, two small negroes belonging to
Col. John N. Williams, of Society Hill, were
killed at his plantation on the rivers, by a stroke
of lightning. There were three under the tree
at the time, and the third one was badly stunned,
but has recovered.-Cherato Gazelle.

near Rodger's, bridge, eight negroes, belonging

hardly realize the condition of things along the

Blurlington Railroad, he stated that passengers
were carried by the steamboat seven or eight
miles from Burlington to the Oquawka station,
to reach the cars on that road, and have not less
than five feet of water all this way. In the
route lies the farm of an old settler, who had in
one field two hundred acres of as fine wheat as
ever charmed the eye, and the entire crop is cov

makes regular trips across this wheat field.

Itf it will be any. further consolation to.her or
