30RE ENDS OF TR CALI LANDRD-SIGNALS
TamITY BAT, Aug. 7.-The Atlantic cable is
a complete success. Signals are being trans
thitted through the whole extent. It may, how
ever, be several days. or perhaps weeks, before
it is opened to tl e public.
TRINITY BAT, Aug. 7.-Both ends of the tele
graph cable are now successfully landed, and in
perfect order-signals are passing momnvtarily.
HALItAx, Aug. 6, P. M.-The Newfoundland
Telegraph line went down last night, while Engi
:qeers were engaged in landing the cable. Nothing
has been communicated since. It is generally be.
lieved here that the Agan:emnon had reached
DlBPATCITO PEIDENT 3uCEAZAN.
Nzw Yoax, Aug. 5.-President Buchanan, at
Bedford Springs, Va., received the anuounce
ment of the success of the Atlantic cable, from
Oyrus IV. Field, (through the Associated Press).
Mr. Field stated to him that assoon as both ends
of the cable were landed Queen Victoria would
send forward a measage and the cable would be
kept free until Mr. Buchanan sent his reply.
WASUINGTON, Aug. 5.-The government of
New Granada otlicially objects to the passage of
the United States troops over the Isthmus route.
Our government, it is generally believed, will
send forward the troops over the Isthmus, not
withstanding the objections of the Granadians.
SvictD--A SAD O0U0tEcE.-lenry D.
Newkirk, a native of Newburgh, or its vicinity,
a N. Y., committed suiciAe on Wednesday night,
at his room in the U. States Hotel, by cutting
his throat with a razor. He had taken the pil
lows from the bed, laid thon upon the floor, and
placing a snal) tub so a-s to eatch the blood. laid
down, and leaning over the tub, severed the jug.
ular vein and the windpipe at a single stroke,
causing a speedy death. Scarcely a drop of
blood fell on the floor, and when found yesterday
morning, he was lying with the pillows under
his hea , and the razor still in his hynd. The
only cause we hear assigned fur the commission
of the fatal act, was a general depression of spir
its, principally caused by ill health.
Mr. Newkirk was about thirty-eight years of
age, and was generally esteemed as a quiet,
- orderly citizen. lie was engaged in the clothing
trade in this city about the years 1849 or '50,
since which time he has been at his home in
New York, until 1857, when he returned to this
city. We believe he has been engaged in no
particular business for the past year.- C ronicle

PaoFEssoR 1lAaNE. DECLUNES THE PaRESI
DEwcy or WII.LIAX AND MARY.-By a letter just
received, we learn that the Rev. Robert W.
Barnwell, of South Carolina, lately elected to
the Presidency of William and Mary College,
,has written to Ex-Pr.sident Tyler, the Rector of
the College, declining the appointment which
has been tendered him. This is much to be re
gretted. The privilege of Mr. Barnwell's inti
mate acquaintance and friendship, which we
have enjoyed for several years, enables us to
bear full testimony to the loss of anticipated
usefulness which must result to our venerable
Alma Mater. The varied scholarship and high
intelligence, the inspiring eloquence and extraor
dinary force of moral character, combined with
all the energy and enthusiasm of early manhood,
render Pro?. Barnwell the man above all others
for the position of chief administrative officer
in a collegiate institution.
Mr. Barnwell declines, with much regret, the
position offered him. His position at Columbia,
8. C., affords him every opportunity which he
desires - for the elevation of the standard of
scholarship in his native State, and he feels un
willing to relinquish a task which he has lately
assumed, and still regards as incomplete.--ich

Housemian, a well known citizen of Cincinnati
died on Sunday night. He was taken sick three
weeks ago, ana on the first day said, " in three
weeks I shall die." His milkman was present,
and told him he should not talk so. He asked
the milkman what he wuald bet on it, and after
sonic conversation it was agreed that if he died
in three weeks the milkman was to supply the
. family a year, for zathing, and if not. double
prce was to be -said for milk a year. This was
done jestingly bythe milkman. Mr. Hlouseman
insisted daily that he would die just at the time
mentioned, and prepared accordingly. His
prophecy proved true.

Xae iANCET's LEAGUv-MOVBrXr .
Mr. WnIMAx L YANCET, a distinguished citizen
of Montgomery, Alabama, has originated a move
ment for the formation throughout the South of what
he designates as "1Southern Leagues." We barely
alluded to this matter in a previous number. That
our readers may be enabled to judge better of the
merits of the enterprise, we here copy an extract
from the Constitution of the Montgomery Association
of Leaguers, framed perhaps by Mr. YAScRT himself:
coNTITUTIloN oF Tue NoNTOooERT LEAoUK OP UNITED
"Believing that the South is In need of some effi!
cient and organized mode of concentrating public
opinion upon'public men and measures, and of infiu.
encing and guiding political parties with a view to
the advancement and protection of her constitutional
rights-and that the want of this has enabled all po
litical parties to sacrifice those rights to their own
And believing further that it is the duty of the
South to use all proper means to maintain her rights
within the Union, with a view to being justified be
fore the world in resuming the powers she has dele
gated to the General (lovernment, in the event she
fails to obtain justice in the Union, we organize our
selves under the following Constitution: e
Art. 5. The object of this League, is, by the use of
proper means, to create a sound public opinion in the
South on the subjoect of enforcing the rights of the
South in the Union. Among its primary ideas are:
1. No more compromise of those rights, either in
party llatforms or in national legislation; 2. A full
recognition and maintenance of those rights, as.para
mount to the safety of the Federal Administration
or the success of National Parties; 3. The elevation
to the public councils of the ablest and purest South
Art. 6. This League will nominate no candidate
for any office, State or Federal-but its members are
pledged to use all honorable means to secure the
nomiqation, by the respective parties to which they
belong, of sound, able and pure men of the Southern
It was at first heralded, that the aim of Mr. YAX
cEy and his colaborers was disunion, or, in the lan
guage attributed to some one of them, the " precipi
tating of the Cotton States into revolution." It now
appears that this construction of their purposes is
erroneous, and that their avowed aim is to "enforce
the rights of the South in the Unioin." Reg .rded in
this light, the movement is entitled to the respectful
consideration of the Southern people, at least in so
far as it contemplates, in good faith, the strengthen.
ing of our section in the political contentions that are
likely to rondor famous the next few years of our
existence as a people. It is asserted by aportion of
the Alabama press, that the object of the now move
mont is power and office for its originators; but there
appears no just ground for doubting that it does in
reality spring from a zealous regard for the rights
and the honor of the South.
And yet, like many other erratic demonstrations
which claim merit on the ground of "good inten
tions," the inauguration of the present ef'ort at this
particular juncture is certainly about as unwise as it
may be allowed to be patriotic. It is so for many
reasons, among which are the following:
1. Because, disavow the point as its authors may,
it is simply the formation of a new political party.
While still insignificant, it is very possible that they
may adhere to their proposed " fundamental law," is
Mr. Y.xeay has it, " of never nominating a candidate
for any office State or Federal." But once let them
acquire sufficient numerical strength in any State to
decide elections, and it is worse than folly to suppose
that "Leaguers" will do otherwise than elect "Lea
guers," and what aro they then but a party?
2. Whether a party in terms or not, the tendency
of the thing is, towards Southern distraction. Take
any one Southern State, say Alabama, as an illus
tration. There stands the Democratic party in strength
and confidence, operated upon by the belief that their
own organization is sufficient for all purposes of South
ern triumph in the Union. "Southern Leaguery"
lifts its head to the light in a new, separate and dis
tint organization. At once then" old guard" is aroused
to reflection. "What does this mean ?" say they.
" Are we, with our well known Southern feelings and
principles, suspected of unsoundness, that this new
bantling must step forth to ceorrect the bearings of
our policy ?" The spirit of opposition has its birth
on the Instant. The old ,party sees the n'eo party,
under whatever professions disguised, and treats it
accordingly. Strifeland wrangling immediately en
sue, and if the sense of the people do not decide
that it be crushed' in its infancy, a political schism
follows and the State is distracted by opposing fac
tions. Such is the course of this question now in
Alabama. It' the people shall say that the Demo.
eratic party is not sufficient to the end of Southern
safety in the Union, and that Leaguery is, then Lea
guery will have its day, and with It the undoubted con
troll of office in Alabama, State and Federal. But
in the mean time the Democracy will fight on for vie
tory, strong in its hopes of eventual success; and
thus will Alabama present the spectacle of a divided
people when most it is needed that each Southern
State shall stand peaceful and united. In Georgia,
and other Southern States, the consequences might
be more disastrous, for there the division might re
suit in placing Know Nothingism in power, thus per
haps sacraficing both the Democratic party and the
South in one fatal campaign. But all this is the
merest absurdity of conjecture. Such a revolution
cannot surely be effected in the now-cemented ranks
of the Southern people. Yet such is the tendency of
Leaguery, involving a risk of infinite loss without the
prospect of attaining any good that is not already at.
tanable through tho Democratic organization.
3. And this anticipates a third position against the
new development of Mr. YANCY; and it is, that the
Democratic party is an organization of Southern
strength every way calculiated to meet and avert the
present and the prospective perils that threaten the
peace and well-being of our country. To be con
vinced of this, look to the principles of that party,
-look to its aims,-look to its acts. Are they not
all in consonance with the best interects of our sec
tion ? Hlow could it be otherwise, when the Demo
racy and the South are now almost co'nvertible
termsi The bone and sinew of our section, its talent,
its patriotism, its worth, arc already organized un
der the Democratic banner. Will Leapaery be com
posed of better materials than this ? Is it not a high
pitch of vain-glory, to say that all this ability, all
this energy, all this zeal for Southern rights, now
congregated in the Democratie ecanp, is utterly in
suficent to do what the true grit of LEAGUERtT is go.
lg to do? Surely these gentlemen of the LEAou~s
do not consider what it is to have fought such battles
as have been fought by thIs "old guard'' of the
Consttution; they underrate the worth of veterans
whom experience has taught to temper boldng with
wisdom, fiery zeal with rational conservatIsm. Wlho
will say that our Southern interests would he as safe
in the keeping of an untried band of extremists
(patriotic and brave though they be)-as in the watch
ful guardianship of a host who have hitherto fought
but to conquer, and among whose leaders are to be
found all the ablest statesman of the South ? Have
regard to the complexion of that host at this time.
See along Its line the proud Insignia of every South
ern State. See at its head a venerable Statesman,
resolute in his high purpose of vindicating the Con
stitution against the assaults of Fanaticism in what
ever slhape they may come. Mark the onward, up
ward course of the march already marked out by the
political engineers of that gallant army. The Rights
of the States, the Rights of .the South, the Equal
Rights of every Section of our country, make up in
part the pledge they swear to redeem before the
world. A temporary calm now reigns over the land,
an armistice in the great civil contestfthat is advanc
ing step by step to its final issue. Yet there stands
the column of the Democracy over ready for the
confict. What though a DOuGL.As has played false
to its claims upon him! An Arnold played false
to the Whigs of the Revolution. Now, as then, will
h treason fall powerless before the might of Truth.
(famop4 by bis treachery, the army of the Consti
uiop repalis rosnuifte and calm,
" Still as the breeze hat 4rea4fql as Ille storm."
If any human agency nan save the Rlepublic, it ls
this Democracy, of which the Sopth constitutes the
centre, that will achieve that result. And yet Mfr.
Yacar would have us believe that his new-fangled
eague. must be the Instruments of our salvation,
and that without this precious remedy all is lost.
The contrast which the bare suggestion presents oil.
tally borders on the ridiculous..
Whon we further view Mr. YAxesv's proposed ae
friends at the North; and wlencw also remember his
invidious gings at the "OlilmInIon' In regard to
her trust-worthiness before thi South; it will surely
occur to every conservative jabi that his scheme is
the indiscreet production.of an indiscreet though
gifted author. It is mattor f regret that- he has
thought proper to Ay off in 'this meteoric exhibition
of a seal without wisdom. His services, rightly ren
dered, might be inestimablejo the cause of the South
and fthe whole country. Datonfidence ever slackens
in one, who advises badly however honestly.
From a letter, dated St. Petersburg, 12th July, we
pluck a few passages that may not prove uninterest
ing to the inquisitive riader. We do so at our risk,
as no single part of the letter was designed otherwise

he will not, he can just step ,over the branch.and take

its social institutions ; based upon asystem contradis

" The streets, the canals, the sto~rcs &c., &e., are

And now, having madle this public theft from a pri
ate letter, we are glad to add that our Minister at
the Court of St. Petersburg had reached that distant
post in safety and health, both he and his family, and
that he was preparing to eater at once upon such du
ties as demanded his attention.
Several responses have been kindly furnished us in
regard to this Regiment of the late War. The fol
Ilowing is published as being the most complete:
Mv. HLIt~An, Pike Ca., July 20, '58.
Mr. Editor :-'- noticed in your paper of the 14th
July an article captioned, "Information Asked," and
as I am in possession of the informaitiorr dosiredl, I
take the liberty to respond.
The Regiment was commanded as follows :
WILLIAx Yousonrnoon, Colonel, who also sup'er
sded Col. CAntEn.
-- Hones, of Abbeville, Lieut. Colonel.
-- HA-rn-E was a Captain but acted as Major.
PATrer NOE., of Abbeville, Pay Master.
LAynt Moss, of Edgefteld, Quarter Master.
-- CUIPPaN, of Edgefleld, Wagon Master.
-- McMUnruv, of E.lgonaeld, Adjutant.
JosBu SrALIsWOaTH, of .Edgoeield, Serg't. Major.
1. Capt. PAuL. Ronoas, of Abbeville.
2. " --iHl-Tin, "
. -- WVAna, "
4. " Jonx Kir, of Edgefield.
5. " Joux CfAvu~tx, of E'Jgofield.
6. " Bax. FRAZIRs,"
7l. " youv MILLED, ,
8. Lieut. Joux T. CoLUMsxw, " in place of M.
P. HoLLrO WAY, Captain elect.
No such Captaina as OLDs and MARsR were in
the Regiment. ~They coimanded Beat Companies at
home, but were not in service. Capt. CuscAruAx'a
Company served under Col. Youvantoon as stated
above. This statement I know to be correct, as I
was present 'luring the whole term of service under
command of Lieut. CoLEsxAM, who filled the vacancy
-ccasioned by sickness of Capt. HOLLtOWAY.
Yours, Ac., G. L. McC.
By another response .we find that this Regiment
was mustered into service at M~asn's Old Field as
late as Dec. 11th, 1813,and was out only a few months.
YoOMGDtoon was appointed by Gov. Alstou to take
command on account of Col. CAnTER'S health. Col.
C. died at Camp Alaton.
By this same response-we find that Sax. PBRRIN
is named as one of the Abbeville Calitains.
pi# The Home Journsaiper-petrates quito a blunder,
in saying that the late dinner to Gov. HIxxovo was
given at Charleston. Seeing that it was at Beech
.feland, he perhaps imaglasd that It mnust have been
on the sea-beard. We bog to Inform the Journal,
that this is an inland island, and located In the rem.
petable district of Edgeleld, being surrounded by
the waters of Savannah River and sundry creeks
which form a continuous water boundary.
p- Hoen. JAMas L.. Purzaau is nominated in the
LOAPERS IN A PINTING OFFICE. I
An exchange says: "The composing room of a I
printing office is not the place to tell long stories, or I
argue points in metaphysics.-Read, ye loungers, and
" A printing office is like a school; It can have no
Interlopers, hangers-on, or twaddlers, without a seri
ous inconvenieuce, to say nothing of loss of time,
which is just as good as gold to the printer, as though
it metallically glistened in his hand. What should
be thought of a man who would enter a school and
twaddle first with the teacher and then with the schol
ars-interrupting the discipline of one and the studies
of the other ? And yet this is the precise effect of
these loafers with the course of business-distracts the
great attention which is necessary to the good printer.
No gentleman will ever enter it and presume to act
the loafer. He will feel above it, for no real man
ever sacrifices the interests of or interferes with the
duties of others. The loafer does both. Let him
think, if he never has, that the last place he should
ever insinuate his worthless and unwelcomed pres
ence is in the printing office."
,60 Professor ROBERT W. BAuNWRL., of So. Ca.
College, declines accepting the Presidency of William
a;d Mary College, Va. le will not relinquish what
he regardi his post of duty to his own State.
_SO- A new Temperance Organ is to be established
at Bennetsville in this State, and Mr. It. JUDGE MOORE
is to be its editor.
gV The health of the City of Charleston is said
never to have been better, at this season of the years
than at present. Not a case of yellow fever, even at
j0- It is proposed to erect a monument, at Jnmes
town, to Capt. John Smith, the Founder of Virginia,
-and who married Pocahuutas.
W It is not what we earn, but what we save, that
makes us rich. It is not what we eat, but what we
digest, that makes us fat. It is not what we read, but
what we remember, that makes us learned. All this
is very simple, but it is worth remembering.
fie- By taking revenge, a man is but even with
his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.
p Longfegow, in his beautiful story of " Key
anagh," calls Sunday " the golden-clasp which binds
together the volume of the week." A pretty idea.
W' An entire Chinese regiment has been senten
ced to wear women's clothes for five years, for aban
doning an untenable fort during the recent attack
upon Canton .by the French and English forces.
Most cruel punishment we imagine.
_20- Spurgeon says of prayer, " that it is the rope
of the belfry; pull it, and it rings the bell up in
Heaven. Keep on pulling it! and though the bell is
up so high you cannot hear it ring, depend upon it,
it can be heard in the tower of Heaven, and is ring
ing before the throne of God who will give you an
swers of peace according to your faith."
83 Our "inp" says: A young lady of more
beauty than senso-more accomplishment than learn
ing-more charms of person than graces of mind
more admirers than friends-more fools than wise
men for attendants-is a coquette.
.AV- An editor out West, in speaking of his do.
mestic increase, vents his great and overwhelming
joy, in the following poetic strain:
"Sound the stage horn, blast the trumpet,
That the wailing world may know!
Puilish it through all the borders,
Even unto Mexico!
Seize your pen, oh, dreaming poet,
And in numbers smooth as may be,
Spread afar the joyful tidings,
Betsie's get another haby."
g" A lady at her marriage, requested the clergy
man to give out to be sung by the choir the hymn
" This is the way I long have sought,
And mourned because I found it not."
gg A love-sick swain, in describing a kiss, says
It is a draught that passes through the system like a
bucket of water through a basket of eggs. Won
g' Horace Walpole tells a story of the Lord
Mayor of London in his timie, who hiaving heard thkst
a friend had the small-pox twice and died of it, In.
quired whether he died the first time or the second.
pm It is said that the last words of the late Win.
T. Porter, editor of the Spirit of the Times, were,
"I want to go home." Hie had no family, and in the
delirium which preceded dissolution, was probably
thinking of his boyhood's home.
pr In our North Carolina exchanges we find the
" Married, in - county, North Carolina, by Rev.
--, Capt. Graves to Miss Nancy Graves.
The graves, 'tis said,
Will yield their dead
When the last trump atkes the skies,
llot if Glod pleamse,
From Graves like these
A dozen little folks may rise."

Mn. Emvon.:-At the time I accepted the nomina
tion, and permitted my name to remain in the Ad

lature at the approaching election, I thought it pro.
babl,that I might be absle to canvass the District ;
but from change of circumstances, and thme ill health.
of a portion of my family, I find It will be Impossible
to do so.
Being well aware (from the custom that has form
rly prevailed, and still continues to prevail in the
present contest,) that it is highly necessary for a can
didate, to thoroughly canvass the District to secure
his election, therefore permit me, (as truly grateful
as I am to my kind friends who nominated me, and
the many who gave me the assurance of their hearty
support,) to withhold my name from the contest ; and
withdraw it from appearing among the list of candi
dates in the columns of your paper.

LETTER FROX THE SPRINGS.
WILLIAMSTON, S. C., Aug. 6, 1858. i
Dar Advertiser:-Should I succeed in making
his brief letter readable, I shall have satisfied my
.pectation, if not my ambition. For he who would
iave the audacity to atteapt to suggest something
itriking or original at this warm, dull, monotonous
reason, should fear the combustibility of his brain,
Ld be under serious apprehensions of finding, at no
listant day, suitable lodgings in the Asylum, if not
dready a fit subject for its walls. The truth of the
matter is this, that it is worth any mah's life, these
lays, to think with a fixed determination,-the heat t
producing haziness of the brain, thence vapors, until C
the intellect Is totally obscured by clouds-but, unlike 9
sur atmospheric clouds, no refreshing showers decend
to cool and moisten its soil, nor bracing breeze fan
the surface. Occasionally some stray thougkt either
breaks into the dry and parched brain, and keeps up
% commotion until the equilibrium is restored; or
ith stealthy step, (indicative of guilt) makes its en
trance, but at the first reeognition crouches lowly, and
ides itself like some guilty thing. This peroration,
take it, is quite sufmcient to prepare you for what
rolloirs, however intensely dull and stupid.
I arrived hero sope three weeks ago, reasonably
ound in body and mind; but, whether my departure
ill find me so, admits of considerable doubt-since
many of your fair readers well know what terrible
inroads a pretty girl can make on the constitution of
the most robust,-afortiori, on one, who cannot boast
a superior physique.
Having been here last summer, what was my sur
prise, when looking out of the ears, the new and gi
ganticHotel, with its imposing front, its huge and
massive columns, met me full in the face. That so
much work has been done in the last few months, and
titrt, so tastefully, speaks much for the energy of the
Proprietors, and the systematic industry of the Super
intendant and workmen. To say that the building is
sufficiently large to accommodate three to five hundred
persons, Is giving you quite a sufficient idea of Its
magnitude, without specifying more particularly; and
to assert that the quantity and quality of creature com
forts, of the house, correspond with the external ap
pearance, is commendation enough. Of course, eo one
comes here In the expectation of finding the luxuries
and magnificence, or conveniences, of a Saratoga or
Newport-nor even the style of some of the Virginia
Springs; yet he finds everything about the premises
in very good style, plain, unostentatious, neat and
healthy-a kind and accommodating landlord, and so
far as I have heard, obedient, attentive and honest
ervaits. He who expects more, will be disappointed.
I shall say nothing of the medicinal qualities of the
water, being incompetent to judge. I can only say
that it has one virtue In a superlative degree, and
that is a negative one, harmlees, for it excites my
wonder and stretches my imagination to coafeive
how persons can gulp down such enormous draughts
of water, without suffering in consequence. There
are persons hero, who tell of miraculous cures pro.
duced by these waters, but as it is always diffiult to
eliminate the apparent and real causes of disease, as
also thu supposed from the known elements of cure,
so is it diffeult to fix the precise standard of faith in
the virtues of the water.
I found a considerablo numler of persons here on
my arrival, (and scarcely an invalid among them)
since which time the number has been gradually in
creasing, and Is at present overfiowng,-being from -
three to four hundred persons.
The amusements are precisely those that persons
take pleasure in who have nothing to do, viz: prom.
onading, riding, dancing, various kinds of games,
and-und, lastly, but not the most inconsiderablc,
cour5g. (Of course, I take no part in this last,
facnactingU pastime, being excluded on the ground or
the want of years of discretion.) To mnmuure in
the mazy dance, tripping the light, fantastic toe, with
some pretty blue-eyed sylph, is quite enough of itself
to untring my nervcs; while the mere touch of one
of their rosy fingers, carries an electric shock through
my whole frame, causing me to tremble like a coirard.
Bt in justice to myself, I must say that I am getting
over my extreme nervousness, and begin rather to
like the sensation than otherwise.
The youth, and beauty of Edgefield, is fairly repre
seted here, and already I hear of conquests being
made by some of the fair ones of your village; and
be not surprised to find on their return, a boat of
captives, young gallants (the symbols of victory)
chained to Cupid's triumphal car. Methinks I se
some of their good parents shrugging their shoulders,
and giving other exhibitions of their unensiness, on
reading this paragraph.-I would say a word of the
beautiful and charming representatives of Saluda and
Turkey Creek, but I feel incompetent to do them jus
tice, and shrink from the undertaking.
Let me digress. Since Idiave been in this part of
the country, I have visited Greenville and the Moun
tains. While at the former place, I had the pleasure
of hearing the Oration of Col. Casswr', which was
truly an intellectual treat. His subject was " Politi
cal and Religious Progress," and I must ay It was
one of the moat beautiful efforts of the kind I have
ever heard. His flights of fancy, his brilliant meta.
phors, and appropriate similes were magnificently
beautlful,-while the wild luxuriancy of his images
was only equalled by their freshness, making them
appear as if the morning dew was yet upon them.
When printed, it will be my delight to furnish you I
with the first copy of this address I can obtain, We,
that Is W. of Augusta, J. D., Eseq., of Edgefleld, and
yself, have just returned from visiting Table Rock
ed C:sar's Head. We found them possessing all
he grandeur and sublimity that have been ascribed to

uxhaustion, we came to the unanimous conclusion1
bat we had paid dear for our whistle, and moreover
roted the salubrity and mildness of the mountain at

legres) all cant and humbug.
Yesterday was the Great Political Mass meeting at
it this place,-there having been, I think not loss
