From IIh, .Gefeberry Sun.
We are amuo e those who believe that in the
passage of the 'isas Con fereice bill, the South
has only yielded to another Comliroinise, anad
that Quitman and Bonham were the only two
who acted consistently, though we are not in
clined to censure others for their vutea. As the
m-atter stood the question was undoubtedly upon
the admission of Kansas with the Lecompton
constitution. The Democracy favored it and
contended for it without any alterations. Its
submission to the people under an enabling act
as contended for by louglas, was considered,
we believe, as a rejection of that constitution.
Well, we ask if this very thing has not been
done ? The conference bill ap~iears to recog
nize the Lecomiptoh c mntitutiona but gives it the
go by, and is based upon a contingency. That
contingency is a land ordinance. If the people
of Kansas vote, res, she is admitted, if not,
she is rejected. it is plain, though, that Kan
sas has vet to vote before she can cone into the
Union. *If nay, it will be years befire she can
come in, and the very end accomplished which
the Black liepublicanss wanted, that she should
not come in under the Leconpton conistitution.
Now, whatever may be said, the South has been
deceived, and that by acceding to a compromise.
In the prophetic words of Mr. Jefferson, years.
ago, written by him. "It, the question, is hushed
for the moment but this is a reprieve only, not
final sentence," and we believe with Mr. Cal
houn, that a " compromise gives us no security."
Let us be done with compromnises.
From the same.
MEssns. Qt'tTxA AND BosnHA.-These two
gentlemen (one tho. Representative of the 4th
Cong'ressional District, Gen. Bonham) cast their
votes recently against the Kansas bill. We ad
mire the principle which actuated them even
if " they diferced with u almost uena nimous
South and with all te.f'e Xil.-ful Nor/crn D)emo
cruey." We are not disposed 11) reflect censure
upon those Southern iembers, who voted in its
favor, influenced, aswe presume they were, that
it was the best policy for the South at the present.
But it is gratifving to us to see men exhibit
firmness, strict adherence, and din unswerving
devotion to that straight forward, direct line of
duty which should characterize the true states
man. Mere Expediency as regards policy of a
subject des not authorize men- to depart from
the paths Li. duty. Nor does it establish the
fact that the satter is disposed of. A high,
noble, firm determined stand is always the best,
while it proves that those maiantaiing such a
course can be depended oi. Time will devel
ope that those two genitleimen, who stood isola
ted as it were, iniiltained the right and proper
position. Such evidences characterize the pa
triot and the statesnian.
From the Laurensville Herald.
If the South has gained anything by the Con
ference Bill, or is likely to he benefited, we
should like to see wherein. If the princilde up
on which the Southern members stood so stren
uously, and spent so nuch breath in defending,
is not virtually abandonied, we would like to be
informed of the principle jbr wehich they did so
* * * * * * *
We are truly pleased to see the name of our
-immediate Representative, M. L. Bonhamn, re
corded against the bill, and we feel assured his
constituents will cordially endorse his vote, and
say " well done, rood and faithful servant." Tile
veteran Quitmian, also voted against the hollow
anid evasive comlpromiise. Bonham and Quitmnan
alone, of' all the Southern Democrats, stood
firnm against the political triek.
From f/he Same.
H~ox. 31. L. BoYuiAM's SVEcH.-We6 have
received a copy of this able speech, upon the
Kansas Conference Bill, which we have placed
in the hands of the compositor for niext week's
issue. The views therein expressed by our wor
thy Representative meet with our most cordial
approbation and endorsement, and we hope
every man in the 4th Congressionial District wil
carefully read the speech.
From the Newberry Conservatist.
Mnssas. BoSUAX AND QURTA.-In our last
issue we had barely time to inform our readers
that the bill reported by the Kansas Conference
Committee had passed both houses of Congress.
A record of the votes shdws that Messrs. Botnhamn
of this State, and Quitmanof Mississippi, were the
only two Southern Democrats who did not vote
for the bill. The Conference Dill, as it passed,
can not be made out more nor less than a com
promise, another compromise to which the South
has submitted, even in the face of the avowal of
certain of her Representatives that they would
no longer consent to further compromise, upon
the real question at issue between the two sec
tions of the Untion, viz: Slacery, which hias
been the undisguised bone of contention through
out mte whole 'ansas agitation.
* * * * I* * *
By this action alone, these two Reopresentatives
have proyen their worthiness to til the seats
they occupy, and, for ourselves, we feel confident
that the rights of their constituents are sate in
their hands. Let us therefore accord them our
hearty " well done."

This Bill seems to have been supported by the
Southern members, and many of our cotemipora

any cause of gratulation, though we have not

shall regard it, until we shall have been better

Congress, the Hon. M. L. Bonham, for a copy of
his Speech delivered in the House of Itepr-esen

we shall take pleasure in publishing in whole or

TEKE DiNNER TO SENATOR HAMMOND.
We had hoped to be able to furnish the proceedings
of the late'dinner to our worthy Senator, Hion. J. HI.

At the conclusion of the Senator's speech, the com

a most disastrous fire. The Abbeville papers contain

TRE EPISCOPAL nAiL.
The Fair given by the ladies of the Episcopal con
gregation in the Odd Fellows' and Masonic 1all, on
Friday night the 9th inat., was really magnificent
Whilst the arrangement fur the occasion was char
acterized by a proper poetic taste, and by a liberality
bordering upon extravagance, the attendance was
brilliant in the extreme and unalloyed joyousness,
filled the fast fitting hours. The stage at the head
of the Hall was handsomely fitted up for a Post Office
and Fairie's Grotto. The Post Office was cSred with
a whole grove of arbor vitisa, with a window in the
centre for the dietribution (of letters, any quantity of
which sentimental scribbling, the young ladies and
gentlemen were the recipients of. On the left of the
office stoodgie I4irie's grotto, canopied by a bower
of evergreen, enwreathed with flowers. Iimediately
in front of both was placed the Piano Forte, the skil
ful execution of which, by several ladies, mingling
with the sweet and thrilling notes of the Aute and
violin, in the hands of a most exquisite performer,
spread a charm of melody over and enlivened the
gay assemblage, and was decidedly a most pleasant
and potent feature of the occasion. The moment the
terpAichorean storm burst forth diffusing its harmoni
ous strains, the Hall became one vast whirl of youth
and beauty, amid a swelling tide of grace and break
era of gallantry. But we will not dwell upon the fes
tivity which was unbounded from the firat to the last,
or descant upon the different bright cynosures of
beauty's brigade. Fascinating as was the occasion, and
delicious as was the music, b-y far the most solid
charm of the night was disclosed by the advance up
on the supper tables. The tables did not groan, be
ing used to such labour, but fairly ascended heaven
ward with pyramids of fruits and obelisks of confec
tionery, amid Islands, and deserts of clasic ruine,
such as epicurean. delight to grope amidst. It is
needless to say that the guests assaulted the tables of
good things with a will. In fact, the charge was
made with a perfectly vandalic disregard of conse
quences, and when the last dying echoes of the knives
and forks resounded over the hall, the wreck if not
melancholy, was certainly sublime to behold.
After supper " the feast of reason and the flow of
soul," was renewed with redoubled vigor, and the
"wee small hours" of the night had already ap
proached before the gay multitudes withdrew from
the scene-aching, but happy. In regard to the
aching, we should say the gentlemen were subject to
two kinds-that aching which arises from much fierce
exercise of the pedestals, and the less painful but
more incurable aching in the region of the heart,
which necessarily results from a whole night's festivi
ties with the bewitching belles of old E dgefiell.
In conclusion, we must be allowed to extend our
cordial congratulations to the ladies who prepared
this charitable ovation, the remembrance of which
time will not speedily obliterate, and felicitate them
on their proud success. TIMOLEON.

AN INTERESTING LETTE FROx nEWnEEY.
NEWBERRY, July 23rd, 1858.
Ma. Entroa :-While the invalid and pleasure-seek
er are leaving for the mountains of North Carolina,
Newberry still retains its activity and liveliness.
First, there has been the Agricultural exhibition,
which brought together the planters of Newberry
and neighbouring Districts. It is surely a great sat
isfaction, this con rentison of Farmers, where they can
exchange views and suggest means of improvement.
This annual meeting together will produce and circu
late opinions, and even if those opinions be sometimes
erroneous, they are beneficial, for "a walking error
is always better than a sleeping truth."
The votaries of Thespis have been agreeably 'en
tertained this week by a series of Drawing Room
Entertainments by Mr. FnANK Rsa and Lady, assisted
ly Mr. L. BuxAnn. These entertainments have
been chaste and excellent, and the superior manner
ia which the dif'erent characters have been rendered,
stamp the company as one of'decided talent. We
have seen many worse players than Mrs. Rau in Bur
ton's and Laura Keen'. She is remarkable for her
versatility of talent, and proves to he almost as
varied as Protes himself1sg
struck," assistecd last night in " The Toodles." The
piece was played well, Mr. BanNAnD sustaining well
the character of Toodles. We bespeak for this com
pany great success in this State, wherever they go.
The Female School of our Town certainly claims a
short notice, under the care of WILLIrAM HOOD, Prin
cipal, and Mrs. AynauasoN, Assistant and Instructress
in Music, Drawing, Ac. Mrs. Axnuasox is a Ladly of
great worth and erperience in teaching, and she can
already proudly point to her jewels in the society
around her, Mare. AnDERsoN was elected Principal
in the music and ornamental department of Spartan.
burg Female College last winter, but she could not
think of severing the ties of mutual confidence that
bind her to this place. The Spartanburg Female
College thus bestowed on Mrs. AND'ERSON a merited
compliment, and at the same time showed their abili
ty to make able selections. Mr. Hloop, the able and
efficient Principal, is a gentleman of renmarkale ac
tivity of mind and precision of thoug~t, and has the
ppcujiar tpit for imparting knowledge palatably and

ana mastered by the school, Although Mr. Hloon is
a diffident and retired man, yet the community and
some of our neighbouring Districts have found out his
ability and success in teaching, and encourage him
with their patronage. Indeed, on attending his ex
amination last week, we were surprised to find so
many young ladies from other Districts. The first
day was occupied in examxining the younger girls of
the Academy, and ever and anon the exercises wcre
enlivened with music, both vocal andl instrumiental.
The pieces consisting of waltzes, duetta &e., were
well executed and would have done honor to older
heads. The instruction in vocal music, although a
new feature, meets the approbation of all-for while
it is attended to, only as a recreation, it is cultivating
the most soul-elevating of all sciences. The class on
the first evening which was examined in Physiology,
Chemistry and Natural Philosophy showed that they
practically understood the questions put to them, for
the answers were accusate, and that without quoting
merely from their text books. fOn the second day the
youngg ladips wpre examined in Botany, Arithmetic,
gfeehanipal rtlilosophy, ke. W~p llRiegd the classes
in Botany had been required tQ keep Thephariumqs,
and to write out a complete analysis of pagh spec'ijqsn
plant, a systepi of instruction at once imprpssive and
useful; apd productiye pf grpat accuracy of thought.
The claus in Mechanical Philosophy were reqjuired to
defined, give rules, aud then solye problems en the
black board. The TLover, Projectiles, Quanpery and
Machinery were beautifully discussed, andi some of
the young ladies showed themselves equal to grapple
with the diflicultios presented. We might go threugh
all the dif'erent branches but must desist. The young
ladies gave a musical Porrne-ous Bie-where Guar
dians, parents and pupils returned home welleconvinced
that at the Female School of Newberry, that instrue
tion was being given, which would make bright orna
ments in society. We wish the happy girls a pleas.
ant vacation, and that nothing may cloud the sunlight
of joy which the endearments of home will produce.
Mr. Iloon has made the Female School here a fixed
fact. His ability-strict attention to everything con
nected with the school, extending oven to the Acade

The Trustees of Newberry College held their regular
meeting last week and elected Mr. WUmTmL Principal
of the Academic Department. This gentleman is a
graduate of Roanoke College, Virginia, and possesses
rare qualities as a Teacher and scholar. Rev. Aus
PAe, of Maryland, was elect'ed President of the
College sometime ago, who is extensively known as
an Author and Divine. The Academic Department
of this College will begin the first Monday in October
next, and the College proper will open the first Mon
day in July 1S59-with an able corps of Professors.
The Trustees have Instituted a system, nar In this
country, which will be the means of preventing ex
travagance in dress, viz: that of requiring all the
student. to sa niormE dress. This Is the estab
lished custom In the>German Universities, which are

that they must .suceed. CIVIS t
fROX OR EU~NOPZAN COREPONDENT.
-LEIPZIG,. June 24th, 1858.
The twenty-fourtlof June in Germany is Saint
John's day, and reckoned as the beginning of sum.
mer. It is one of thi many festivals or holydays of
the Lutheran Church, and of all, the most beautiful
in its observances. I.must try to tell you something
of if. The day is peculiarly devoted to the remem.
brance of the dead. "And yet oe sees little else than
life and gaiety-a remarkable but not incongruous
union of mourning and rejoicing.
But first, a word about German graveyards. In
the poetical language of the country, a graveyard is
called either "God's Acre" or "The Court of Peace,"
16d God's acre is as religiously kept and cared fur as
God's house. The rirest, freshest and most tasteful
of all Hower gariens.in Germany are the graveyards.
In them is no unadorned spot to be seen, no mound
upon which the turf is not thick, fresh and green; no .
enclosure, however humble, without Its roses, lilies -
and vines. In all oouintries are the costly tombs andt
monumoetn of the rich more or less alike; but in no
other land are the lo'vly graves so beautiful as in
This morning then, as early as Eye o'clock, God's
acre in Leipzig was thronged with a busy crowd of
men, women and children, all bearing flowers, flow
ere, flowers. Flowers in baskets, flowers in childrens'
wicker wagons with infant faces peeping out from
among them, flowers In handbarrows, flowers made
into huge bouquets, and all manner of rieh exotics
and dainty bloomlings in pots and vases. And then
there were all imaginable emblems and devices in
flowers, crosses, crowns, hearts, anchors, lyres, harps
and stars. In the room above every grand hereditary
vault, around every Iolished marble shaft, around .
every time-worn and moss-grown tomb, by the sido of
every emerald mound, was seated a busy circle of
fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends. Long,
long wreaths were plaited and wound about and
about these lass resting places. The hillocks were
thoroughly moistened and thousands of glistening
flowers stuck in among their green coverings. The
pots were buried so deep in the turf, that the graceful
stems rising from them seemed to spring out of the
graves bosom. And the emblems were arranged in a
hundred ideal and touehing forms. The picture was
as pure, as b'right, as lovely as the flood of morning
light, which poured down to illuminate it. This was
the mornaing's task'.
Lato in the afternoon, when the sun was nearly
gone, the same laborers; in holyday attire, returned
to look upon these works of love. At this moment,
it is near midnight, and. many are still there; they
are sitting with clasped hands and are not conscious
of the lapse of time; their thoughts are in heaven.
Most faces were gay and happy, but there were also b
many that told sad tales of desolation. In a lone
corner, by a plain gray stone, knelt a pale, attenuated
boy of apparently sixteen; his faee was noble and
intellectual, by his side rested a pair of crutches.
-Around a low cross at the head of the stone, he wound
a wreath of forget-me-nota and lilies of the valley, tl
two tiny flowers not found in our own beaming south,
,but here, by every brook-and considered almost sa
cred. Could any others be so, fitting for such a pur
pose ! *Forget-me-nots, which have the color of boav 3
en, and symbolise hope, and lilies of the valley, clear
as sunlight and emblematical of spotlessness from the
world ! And were not "the lilies " tots honored be.
fore all the flowers of earth, when called upon to bear
witness of the all-providing love of Him ini whom we
live and move? An hour after, when the daylight
barely glimmered end the dew was beginning to fall, si
the pale boy was stretched upon the gray stone, and
his crutches, which he had drawn up also, again rested n
by his side. lie wept! Such tears are more eloquent
than the proudest mausoleum, and such a wreath is d
far nobler thanr a monarch's crown !

Its long sweep of bee crags, looming up grand,
stern, huge, sombre an blime, like the battlementsfo
of some inrial genii. I is that we see rising up tor
graceful as a Grecian ma, from the brow of yon ina

of the "burst furnace a volcano ? But while we loi

nothiag but a cloud, natural It is for one, amid
surroundings like the fall into a dreamy reverie. tr
The willing captives of ey for the moment, we are t

very hart of thaetAld. .hc .e ar standing? _ton
ire we In danger of being swallowed up by an earth
juake? I trow not. This is Tunnel Hill, ulas Stump
louse mountain, and those explosions are the blasts
n the "great tunnel."-The Blue Ridge Railroad,ex
ending from Anderson to Knoxville, will be 195.
miles long; 52 miles in our own State, 17 in Georgia,
3 in North Carolina, and 53 in Tennessee.
The Stump House Tunnel is one mile 572 feet in
ength ; Its entire grade upward in a Westernly direc
Ion is 66 feet; it is 20 feet high by 16 in width-an
ipening large enough, it would seem, to admit any
rain of cars. I saw it stated in the papers, some
ime ago, that the Blue Ridge Tunnel in Yifrginia was
uund to be too small, and I have been surprised to
sarn that many of our intelligent citizens had gotten
hemselves into the belief that this piece of infurma
ion had reference to the tunp I1vuee Tunnel.
But 4 am about todigress. Therocky mass, through
rhich the tunnel passes, is composed mainlyof quartz,
rhich, according to Dana, is an'essential constituent
f granite. It is due to truth and science, however,
o state that there is also a gnciss formation, or in
ther words, that in some places the rock is made up
f thin parallel plates, capable of being separated by
plitting. Though this latter feature would escape
ho notice of a casual observer, for at no point in the
unnel has a prop dr an arch been found necessary.
Vherever the full section is excavated, the tunnel is
omplete and self-sustaining, both at the top and at
he sides, and will thus remain for years.
From the Eastern portal, the tunnel is open 1200
aet. Curiosity generally impels visitors to explore
his artificial cavern, although the gloom, the smoke,
he horrid din, and the constant dread of a premature
xplosion are apt to work fearfully upon the nerves
ud upon the imagination. After stumbling and
roping along the darkened way for a considerable
Lstance, one is rather surprised to Bnd, in such a
lace, a brace of smitheries in full blast; but'it is nec
ssary for the black-smith to follow up the work so
hat the drills may be kept in good order. , The ring.
ig anvil, the shooting sparks, and the stench of salt
etre bring to mind the fabulous story about the Cy
lops assisting Vulcan to forge the thunder-bolts of
ove. And as the Cyclops are fabled to have had but
no eye, in the middle of the forehead, almost hidden
y the lowering brow,-the little lamps, "making
arkness visible," and suspended from each work
ian's oil-cloth hat, are not at all calculated todetract
rom the illusion.
Shaft No. 1 is now useless except for ventilation,
nd it serves admirably for that purpose-the current
f air rushing alternately, up and then down, through
he opening. Standing more than 170 feet beneath
be surface of the earth, and catching a glimpse of the
Ino sky through this shaft, one is prepared to set a
Ight estimate upon the light of day. Not quite 12
ion ths ago, I could go into the mountain, from the
.ast end, only 420 feet, but on this occasion, I went
a 1200 feet, or nearly one-fourth of a mile!
At shaft No. 2, which is 226 feet deep, the progress
f the work is very good,-the excavation having
ecn carried 50 feet East, and about 70 West. The
ontractors are prepared to take out the full section
r the tunnel at this point.
No. 3 is the only shaft not finished, but will be
rought to grade by next October. Here an unusual
uantity of water has been encountered; for a while
uis summer, 2500 gallons p'er hour were brought out
-now reduced to 1600. A beautiful oscillating en.
ine and a fan for sending fresh air down to the toil
ig miners, have been added atthispoint. The black
nith's shop here, and also the one at No. 4, is con
ected with the fan, and thus the labor of two hands
t the bellows is saved.
At shaft No. 4, the slide and cage apparatus may be
:en. Two sets of uprights about five feet apart, ex
und from the bottom to the top of the shaft; between
less, passes up and down a hugh box, attached to a
rong cable and having pieces of Iron on the sides
iactly fitting the upright timbers. This arrange
oent works somewhat like a railroad, and there is no
aance for the box either to oscillate, or turn in any
irection; the advantages are safety to hands, and
uch greater power and capacity for serving the men
slow. Formerly, about 25 operatives could be em
loyed here, but Inow from 50 to 60. The hardest

KALVIA PEACIlEs.-The Charleston Courier
of Wednesday contains ti e following notice of
a shipment of picbes from Kalmia, the resi
dence of the Hon. Win. Gregg:
KALMIA PEAiiH ES.-The productionof Peaches,
this season, at Kalmis, a barren sand-ridge, two
miles heyond Aiken, in this State, has been
most abundant. On Friday last, the 16th inst.,
750 boxes, and forty five baskets of peaches
were picked and packed at that place, and ship
ped thence to Charleston, via the S. C. Railroad,
in four heavily laden cars, the boxes -for New
York and the'baskets for Charleston; estiraated
to yield a return of about S4,000, no inconsid
erable item to be realized, in a single shipment,
from the otherwise sterile sand-hills of that re
gion. A box contains about a bushel-and-a-half,
and a basket about three peeks. The founder of
Graniteville is entitled to the credit of having
thus made the barren fruitful, and the desert to
rejoice and blossom as the rose-manufactures
and horticulture have alike owned the impulse
of his enterprising spirit.
The compliment to the enterprise and indus
try of Mr. Gregg, is as just and well deserved
as it is flattering. No man living, has labored
4o much or so successfully, or contributed more
to the development of the resocirces of South
Carolina than Wm. Gregg ; who is, among the
ablest, most enterprising and practical men in
the State. A State but honors herself, by hon.
)ring such men as Win. Gregg.

VINE GROWING ABOCIATION.
Aixrmi, S. C., July 15, 1858.
In pursuance of an invitation extended through 2
the solumne of the Barnwell &ntinel to the
rruit growers and agriculturists of the section -
contiguous to Aiken, a large and respectable
number of citizens convened this day at the
Town Hall, for the purpose of organising a
Horticultural and Pomological Society.
The meeting was organised by calling Judge e
Robertson to the chair, and Mr. Wood was re
iuested to act as Secratary.
On motion of A. De Caradene, Esq., a com

to draw up a Constitution for the Society. In
conformity to this resolution, Messis. Caradene,
Ravenel, and Purvis were appointed by the
chairman, who reported after a short time a

The annual meeting of this Society will be
held on the third Thursday of July, at Aiken,
It is made the duty of the directors to manage
the property and business of this Society so as
best to promote the interests of horticulture in

Such, Messrs. Editors, is a succinct synopsis

The cultivation of fruits for market is attract
ng more and more attention every year, and "
ituated as this section is, it has peculiar advan- 0
ages for the growth and shipment of the same.
From the interest evinced on this occasion it
s hoped that the citizens generally, who feel an
nterest in agricultgire, will unite with us in the
uirtherance of an enterprise which tends to ad
