CHARt1ir2TON, September 18, 1958.
Dear Adve,tiser: ln re'uming my weekly chit
chat whh' your readers. permit mne to begin with my
warmest good wirhes to youraelf and themi, 1r your
health and happiness.
Our regular .eriod fir the re-opening of buasiners
for the Fall and Winter .anpaigu has duly arrived.
but I fear, from preeit indications. will ucessarily
be for some time postpeed. Since my !ast. the Yel
low Fever has not only become an epidemic, but, as
you state in your last paper, it is but tdo true, that it
"is raging" in some particularly infected portions of
the lower part of the City. Our daily Journals are
giving you, eandidly, and fully, the whole facts of
the case for they are well awage that any attempt to
disguise the truth or allay exaggerated fears, is worse
than useless, andonly serves to cause tlistrust abroad.
There is no disposition here to deny that the Fever is
prevailing extensively, and increasing daily, and
that many of the caes are of a very malignant type
At first it was confined entirely to the shipping and
to the lower orders, aud continued for several weeks
to select its victims from the most crowded and filthy
neighborhoods. Moving with slow but sure pace it
made its way gradually through the heart of the
City, and has at length reached the upper Wards,
which have heretofore enjoyed a most remarkable ex
emption. It has now secured a firm footing and but
for some unforeseen interposition which we have as
yet little reason to anticipate, there is no ground to
hope for its fisal disappearance until frost. We would
therefore advise all of our frieuds who are absent,
not to think of returning befure that anxiously looked
for period. Our oldest physicians recommend, that
all of us, whether native or unacelimated, should
avoid all unnecessary expopure to night air, or change
of air; that those who are already at home remain
there quietly, and that all who have left should stay
where they are. All children and minors (under 21)
are alike liable to the disease, and there have been
several instances of fatal cases among negroos residing
The mortality however, bas so far, fallen short of
1854, as statistics recently published clearly show.
- The epidemic of that year enmmenced about the
third week in August, and the first official report was
made on the 19th, announcing 4 de.umb. The largest
number of deaths was for the week en-ting 16th Sep
tember, (thefifth week of its reign) 127. From that
date it began gradually to decline until the 25th No.
vember when 5 deaths were reported-Total for 1854
-618. In 1356, the first report appeared on 9th Au
gust, (1 deatb)-the fever gradually increasing until
4th October, when it reaches its maximun 32, and
then declined rapidly until 22d November, when one
death was reported. Total for 1856, 206. The firet
report for the present year was one death for the
week ending 7th August-the fever steadily increas
ing but altogether confined to lower part of Tradd
and Guignard Street., Bedon's Alley, and such re
sorts,-until the beginning of September, when the
announcement of 73 deaths produced a general feel
ing of apprehension among our citizens for the safety
of their unacelimated friends and children, and al,
persons who designed leaving at all were advised to
do so at once. Many who pruferod running the or
deal of acclimation, having all their interests here
for life, decided to remain, and wore urged by no
meaus to change the air, and to avoid all exposure.
Last Monday's report (103 deaths) brought us to the
end of thc .irth ucrek,-the totid number of deaths
amounting to 250-against 365-for the sixth wouk
of 1854, ending 23d September,. when the decline
had commenced. On Wednesday night, the wind
.blow heavily, with torrents of rain, producing a
marked change in the atmosphere, the Thermometer
falling to fl3* (the lowest point since 12th May last)
-and we have since been enjoying a delightful spell
of clear bracing October weather, bitting and slue-ping
with closed doors and windows. Whether this change
will eventually oheck the progress bf the fever, (the
tine being now at hand when we may look for some
Improvement, in accordance with former experience)
remains yet to be'seen. Monday's report will scarce
ly he a fair critarion, as the largest amount of mor
tality which it records may have occurcd in the early
part of the paat week.
-There Is hardly any other topic broached-It is the
engrossing theme of conversation every where, at the
corners of the streets, in every group-every fammily
circle-and yill continue to be so, until the arrival
of the great Frigate Niagara, which is daily expected
of our Bar, to carry away the Africans from Fort
Sumter. This event will, for a short time, break in
upon the monotomy, and gives us something else to
talk and think about.
As the Frigate will not probably he able to come
into the Harbor, our Steamers and Tugs will bu in
requisition, and no doubt some of us will try hard to
get a glimnyse of her.
You hare of course kept pace 'aith the history of
the captured negroes, and are piosted upi In all that
has occurred since the arrival of the Echo, including
the several transfers of the captives from the Brig to
Castle Pinckney, and thence to Fort Sumter-the im
prisonmnent of th. crew, examinations before the
United States Commissioner, andI proceedings in the
U. S. District Court. The trial takes place at Co
lumbia on the 4th November, before Associnte Justice
Wayne of the Supreme Court. The negroes will re
main at Fort Sumter In cuistody of the U. S. Marshal
until their final transfer to the Niagara.
A vast amount of discussion has b~een elicited-a
good deal of bravado wasted-and perhaps a valua
ble fund of solid reasoning brought to bear upon the
questions involved in this transaction, which may re
sult in something being hereafter done to effect a
compromise between the conflicting demands of law
and public opinion on this subsject. Thu general sen
timent here is, I think, opposed to the )'enail feature
of the law which makes the Slave-tradle piruuey. The
reflecting portion of our people are not rabid on the
subjet of re-opening the Slave-trade. They have
no '-higher law'' doctrines to excite them to rebellion
against the laws of the land--and (as, is the case with
spany in reference to the infliction of capital punish.
anent for any crime) while natural feeling revolts at
the m~ode of punishment, they are, with very few ex
ceptions, prepared to uphold and abide by the laws of
their coutry, whatever the malice or jealousy of their
Northern brethren may assert to the contrary.
In these dull times, but little can be gleaned from
the scanty records of the business world. There was
a fair demand for Cotton in the early part of the
week, but dealers were unable to come to terms, so
that the sales have been limited to about 1450 Dales
at 91@121 cents ; 97 Bales having changed hands at
the last named rates. The receipts during the week
amounted to 2384 Bales. 1,000 Bushels Maryland
*Corn sold at 90cts. We have received some 5000
Bushel: of wheat by Rail Road-6442 Bushels were
exported coatwise. $1,05 lhne been offered and re

3451 barrels. The trade in these three articles has
been seriously affected by the stringent Quarantine

DEATHI OF Ma. B. F. CHEW.-The death of
this worthy citizen took place on Thursday after
noon. He bad long been confined to his room
by a dropsical affection, and as his family and
friends were aware for months past that his dis
case was incurable, his death was not unexpected.
Mr. Chew was a gentlemian of high integrity ;

A LOVELY SEASON.
The autumn has come in most beautifully, with a
cool, pure, bracing atmosphere, and skies of the love

stood, at an early hour in the morning, at between
50b and 00*. There was a rumor of a slight frost,
but that must be a mistake. Cotton is opening rap.

THE KANSAS CONFERENCE BILL.
Our readers have been surfeited with opinion after
opinion upon the Conferencemeasure of the lust session
of Congress, from private as well as public men. If 1
they have seen the mutter as we have, the impres
sion must rest upon their minds that those opiuions
have scareely~ heen suppoirted with ordinary plausi
bility. Iidecl, so far as arguments have been attemp
ted at all, they have been of that lame and far-fetched
kind which are over indicative of a weak cause.
Knowing that all ars tired of the matter, we should
perhaps abstain from continuing the vin discussion.
But it is right that the other side, to which we belong,
should have at least a single showing. That this
may be given in as brief a space as possible, we here.
to append a statement of the whole question as pre
sented by the lion. C. C. CLAY, of Alabama, in a let
ter addressed to his constituents. Hoping that each
and every reader will give the distinguished Senator's
reasoning a close examination, we dismiss the topic
at once and altogether.
Read the argument:
The Conference bill involved no concession of our
rights or interests, and no abandonment of sound
principles or good policy. If the Senate bill was
acceptable to the South, the Conferenceo bill should
be, in my opinion.
The Lecompton Convention, not content to get Kan
saa into the Union on equal terms with other new
States, with suicidsil folly demanded better terms than
had been granted any of them; claiming four see
tions of land in every township for schools; all salt
springs, gold, silver, copper, lead or other valuable
mines; five per cent. of the nett proceeds of the pub.
lie lands, sold by'ore or after admission : seventy-two
sections for a seminary of learning; and every alter
nate section for twelve miles on each side of two rail
roads, one erossing the State from her Northern to
her Southern, and the other from her Eastern to her
Western bunndaries-in all more than 23,000,000
acres, when her just and equal share, compared with
Alabama, wuald have been about 4,000,000 acres!
No one in Congress was willing to grant this arrogant
and unrighteous demuand. No State had been granted,
or had asked, half as much on applying for admis
sion, and some had been refused admisrion with much
less asked for by them. Ohio asked admission with
objectionable boundaries, and Congress refnsed it. lut
passed an act, providing that if a majority of her
people, at the ballot box, assented to certain modifi
cations of boundaries therein proposed, sie should be
admitted hfproclamastion of the Presidlent. Th'e same
thing happened with Michigan, except that Congress
referred her terms of nelmission to a convention of
the people, to be called for that purpose. Arkansas
demanded more land than Congress would griLnt, and
new terms of admission were proposed und submitted
by Congress to her Legislature-as the power o de
ciding had been conferred ongho Legislaturo by the
Convention that framled the Constitution. So Con
gress refused to admit Wisconsin and Iowa on the
terms they nasked, and proposed and submitted to
them, respectively, other terms of admission. The
demands of those States were moderate compared
with those of Kansas. Should an exception have
been made in her favor, by granting her about six
tiues as much land as wits her share, or had been
granted other new States ? In previous cases of re
fusal to admit a State on the terms she asked, Con
gress had proposed new terms, and submitted them
to the decision of the people, or of their delegates in
Convention, or of their representatives in the Logis
lature, and made her assent to them a condition pre
cedent to her admission into the Union. Why depart
from past practice in the case of Kansas ?
Kansas had no right or power to prescribe to Con
gress, and Congress had no right or power to pro
scribe to Kansas, the terms of her admission; but
each had the right and the power to dissent from the
terms proposeil by the other. Congress exerted this
right and power by refusing to admit Kansas with
the immense dowry Aie askdd, but offered her admis
sion with ani equal portion with her elder sisters.
This was done boil in the Senate and in) the Confer
ence bills. Each bill acknowledged the authority of
the Lecomipton 4'nvention-the validity of its action
-the ratifiention 11Y the people of the pro-slavery
clause submitted to their vote-the right of the lieu
ple of a territory, when establishing a State Govern
ment. to adopt a cnstitution without submitting it to
a popular vote, and to form and regulate their doumes
tie institutions in their own way, subject only to the
Constitution of thme United States-and each acepted
thme Lecomnptoan Constitution ias repiublicani in foirm,
agreed and proinised to admitKanmsas under it into
the Union, and actually did admit her on an equal
footing with other States, pirovided she chose to come
in with equal and like grants of land for schools,
roads, &c., &c. The only difference seized and com
mented on by the Southern opponents of the-Confer
ence bill, is this: it did, while the Senate bill did not,
expressly and formally submit to a vote of the pseople
of Kansas the question of admission upon the new
terms of land grants proposed by Congress instead of
those priopesed by Kansas. lint this was dif:'rence of
formi, not of substance. hand the Senate bill become
a law, Kansas would not thereby have been brought
into the Unioan, because tier terms of entering it had
been rejeted, and other and less favorable terms had
been substituted without her consent by Congress.
She would have had the right and the power to stay
out of the Union, and would have been out till she
expressed tier assent to the new terms of admission
propiosedl in that bill, hysomue declaration of words
or of acts, such as a vote of acceptance or the elec
tion of U. S. Senators, nd piutting in motion the
machinery of a State Government.
To deny this is to deny the free agency of Kansas,
and her right to choose the terms of tier admission
into the Union, and to claim for Congress power to
coere her into the Union against her consent. The
doctrine of state rights denies Comngress power to
make or untaiko a State, or force a State in or out of
the Union. Under the Senate bill, Kansas coulad and
would have assen ted or idissented to striking oil~iher
ordinanace, and substituting new andl less favoraible
termis of admnissioni, and coul~d antI would hiive elected
to come ini or stny out of the Union. The Conference
bill simply acknowledged that right, and provided a
mode of exercising it, but dlid not ail could not con
for the right. It wans a rIght of Kansas, which Con
gress could not give to or take from her, and did niot
give to tier by the Conference bill, or take frot her
by the Sennte bill. This, it seems to me, no advocate
omf state rights or strict constructionist can deny, and,
if true, the difference between the two bills was in
form, not ini substane.
But seome Southronas opposedl the bill because, they
said, it submitted the constitution to a vote of the
peeple, and somne Northerners opposed it because,
they sail, it did not submit the constitution to such a
vote. There is nothing in the lanaige or spirit of
that act to warrant the assertion that it submitted the
Lecommpton constitution tom a vote of the people, but
munch to contradict the assertion; fof it aeknowledged
the conastitutioan taa be the act of the people of Kin
sias, to be republienan in form, anal to be acceptable to
Congress, bait declaired the terms of andmission dle.
manuded by Kansas were unnemceptablu, paroposed
other terms and submitted them to a vote of the pao
le. It is true thiait the paeop~le might vote aagainist
the terms proposed, inot beeanse they were unaccep
table to them, but because the Lecompaton constitu
tiun was unacceptable to them. Bait what hadl Coma
gress to do with the motives of the people aof Kansas ?
It could not legislate rensons for their acts inato or
out of their heads. It should not have been deterredl
from doing its dhuty and respeeting the rights of Kan
sas by letting her chooswe whether she would come in
to the Union unier the Lecompton constitution, with
5,000.0010 acres of landt granted to her, insteutd of the
23,000,000 demanded by her, from feaar of her refusal
to enter the Union becanuse of opposition to that cain
stitution, and not because of dissatisfnection with the
quanatity of land granted to tier! She might have
refused for the same secret reason to come Into the
Union under the Senate bill.
Hence, I repeat, there is ano objection to the Con.
ferenee bilt that does not obtatin aigaitast the Seante
bill There are objections to the Semnate bill thn~t do
not obtain against the Conference hilt. The Senaite
hill, by the Green-Pugh amndament, declared the
right of the people of Kaansas "at. all timues to alter,
reform or abolish their faria of goveranment in such
manner as they may think proper, Congress hereby
dislaiming amny authority to inaterfere, &e.,"--which
truism seemed like an apology to Black Republicans
In and out of Kansas, for adamitting her under the
Lecomapton constitution, and a suggestion to them to
come in, and immedIately thcrer fter to change their
constitution-a policy which some of theti advocated.
Again, the Senate bill made n provIsIon about Nana
sas in case of her refusal to come into the Union un
der the Lecumpton constitution. The Conference hilt
is free from the Green-Pugh amendment, and declares,
if Kansas refuses the terms therein proposed, she
shall not be admitted into the Union till "it is as
ertained by a census, tdy and legally taken, that
the population of said territory equals or exceedis the
ratio of representation required for a member of the
Hous'e of Representatives of the Congress of the
United States"--a declaration by law of a sound gen
eral principle, which may tend to suppress those fre
quent conventions that have destroyed all peace in
Kansas and in Congress, and may keep her a territo
ry for many years, wvhere, under the Nebraska-Kan
sa act and the Dred Scott dleision, Southrons haive
a right to carry and hold slaves.
I think nothing was lost by the South in thes Con.
fereneo Kansas act, either in the abstract or the con
crete, in principle or practical rhaults. It amaitained
the right of the peopale to form a slaveholdinag State
in torritory north of 36 30, proposed to admit sucht
a State on equal terms with other new States, aind
offred her straaag inaducemnents to ciame inito the Uanion,
by declaring, if she did not accepat the terms proposed,
she should slimy out till she attained the populiation
that would entitle her to one representative. What
has the South laist by its adoption anal the rejection
of the Senate bill? If Kansas bad entere the Union
under either bill, she would have adldedl two votes to
the Black Republican force in the United States Sea
sto immediately, and short after. aniothier vote to the
same sido in tihp louse of Itepresentatives, and would
soon have expelled slavery anti slave-holders by lawI
from their limits; for a mjorlty of the nmemborsa

were of that party. Oar rights have, at least, Federal

done to establish slavery there.
For the Advertiser.
Mli. Emon,-Dcar Sir: In your comments on
Gov. ADAMS' letter to the-" BOsnIxA Dinner," in my
opinion, you have certainly put an unwarranted
construction. I cannot see that he places negro
trailers upon a footing with'" the negro stealers who
visit the African coast on missions of plunder and
robbing." His whole argument is levelled, if I un
derstand him rightly, against the law which suppres
ses that trade, and taxes the South to support a Navy
for search ; and, if that 1kw did not exist, it would
be as just and right to purchase slaves in Africa, as
Virginia or Maryland, If slavery be right his argu
ments ar,-aud the.only thing for us to consider is,
whether it is the interest and policy of the South to
bring slaves from Africa, (if the law (if Congress
debarred it was repealed.)
If that law should ever be repealed, rest assured
we of the South would consider our interests enough
to decide whether to engage in that trade or not. I
would like to know how the African-trader could force
his slaves upon our soil, unless we, who are interested
in its culture, purchased them? And before we be
came purchasers we would well weigh our interests,
and make calculations, of the probable results arising
therefrom. We must certainly give up the right of
holding property In man, and weaken our argument
for its support, when we say it is piracy to purchase
them in Africa, or elsewhere, only as the law makes
We of the South are too prone to become Nation,
alized. and see all things -through party, for sake of
party, and change State Rights into Party Rights.

cept, with a few, and Co-operation has succeeded in
its place. I am willing to be termed a Co-operationist
fur resistance, but not according to the order of the
day, Co-operation for Conpromisc and Submission.
The doctrine of State Secession is now changed to
whole South Co-operation-but another name for
Submission. Mr. Borems is reported to have said that
" the election of a Black Republican President in 1860,
will be sufficient cause for Secession." Will the whole
South Co-operato and say so? Oh, no. That would
endanger the Democratic Party-the party that must
check the encroachments of the Federal Government,
and hold FnED DOUGLAS, or whoever the Black Re
publicans elect, at bay, and save the Union.
Sir, the South, as a body, will never secede. If
Secession over takes place, it will be by one State
stepping boldly forward, in defiagee of the General
Government, drawing the sword, throwing away the
scabbard, fully determined for liberty or death to be
Article1, Sec. 10, Constitution of the United States,
"No State shall nter into any treaty, alliance or
Confederation." low would the South co-operato
unless in p lain violation of the alsove clause ? Think
you that there will ever be a general outburst of in
dignation at one time, against nay Act of the Pederal
Goverunmcnt, sufficient for the whole Suath to see,
eye to eye, and rise simultaneously to shake off their
shackles, without a previous treaty of alliance or
I believe, as Col. Pear.s once expressed himself,
what the South wanted was an "issue," and that
issue must he made by some State independently,
upon her own reserved (State) Rights. Col. Picxxss
made the remark in consequence of the Act of Con
gress dismembering Texas, and his hope was that one
would reject the Act, and not accept the bribe, and
thus mnake an issue upon which the whole South
could unite and contend for her rights. This was
the fighting point, and the issue which Col. Pmucexxs
so gloried in, if anade, because he believed the time
had come, which in making that issue, the South
would unite andshaye her rights in'the,Union, or her
liberty out of it.
Look back upon the past, and by it judge the fu
ture. After our great men (mostly umembers of Con
gress) had, by Sleech after speech, alarmed thme State,
tellinig the people how their rights were usurped, how
degradled it couldi be for them tamely to submit, and
quietly wear the chainis of Slavery ; callinig upon
thmem to arouse, assert their rights amid f~marlssly
maintain them ceen unto death. After they hadl
mado the peopmle believe they were in earnest, and
had actually put theom in motion to perform or die,
see wihm what precipitancy the greater number cooled
down, and hogan to tell thme dear people, that remally,
there wams nomt so much to sub~mit after all; and that
perhaips there might he danger-yea, great danger
most bloodly issues, slavery,-yes death-if we assert
our rights andi move another step. Stop ! Please wait
I heard one of our greatest men, in his liblic
speech, say (upon the Texas que.stion) that it was
merely a difference of opinion-thme same as two lair
ycrs would differ about some point of law. That up
on this question, the South and thme North differed in
opinion,-it was only a difference of opimnion. You
see how our great mencm can bring down one of the
most important issucs, to a mere difference of opinion.
The more iwe beconme Nationalized, or afliliato with
National De~mocracy, the worse it will be for the South.
I am no prophet, neither lay'clmaim to the power of
Spirit Rupping, but if ever this Union is dissmlved it
will be by onle State stepping boldly forwrid and
making an issue upon which the rights of the South is
involved. And nmy lil'e upon it, the South will make
her cause their cause, as certain as water, by thme laws
of grnmritationm, will run downhill. But if we wait for
cooerationi, it will always end in comproumise and
siomijslon. Yours Rtespectfully, H.
For the Advertiser.
Ma. EDInRon-I was very mchl mnortimed to o' -
serve in your last issue, a card over the signature of
M. WV. GrarY, wherein lhe saw fit to revive cer
ain sad reminiscences of the past that grated harsh
ly-ye-a sorely-on my feelings, the necessity of
whiichi I cannot perceive. And, In vindication of the
character of one 1' ho was near and dear to me-a
beloved brother, who for many years was my only
guardian and protector,-! now respectfully claim a
hoct space In your columns.
I do riot now, and never d'd blame Mr. GAaRY, for
de'eniding his client, but I do think that lie might
have defended his. ease equally as well without revi
ving the character of my brother in the manner he
has. Mr. GAR appears damirous to convey the Im
pression that the "urmfortunate deceased " occupied
the low position in li e of a Card-case keeper for a
Faro Banik." But many of the people' of Edgefield
listrict know that this mu not correct, His many
friends I am proud to hemvi, always recognized hi m
as a genteman. Though a poor man, and one who
hd to struggle hard to maintain hIs family, yet I de
fy any man, to say that he ever departed from the
strictest honesty and integrily. And, even, if, on th'at
uifortunate occasion, in the kindness of ihis heart, he
did keep the " card case," it was at the solicitation
of those presenit, who he though~t were his friends.
Like, poor fallen oman, lie too had hisi fau'lts-one of
them was, that lie occasionally visited the card table.
(And it may he that the critical Mr. GAr does like
wise-more so perhaps than ever did thme deceased.)
But I do m.om think iliat it was tight in Mr. GAaR to
revive the faults of the silent sleeper, and forget his.
ther qualities of time head and heart. This Mr. GAR
mas done, and done injuriously. Bunt J leave the mat
er-it is to me an unpleasant subject. Thme public, I
trust, will do the memory of my brother justice, and
rot let this stain which Mr. GAuR has published
gainst his mecmory, rest heavily over hIs enhiappy
ramily amid relatives.
Ini this connection, I desire to say that Mr. GARav
d rot give through your paper the version of his
peech as I understood it. I think his langusge was
o this purpose:
" That monuments were not intended fir mechanics
td humble citizens, lint that they were intended for
hree distinct classes, viz: Statesmen, Chieftain, and
Monuments, tIle gentleman well knows, have been

-A hat the Solici:or said to him on this oinit I Does'
he not remember the remark ? If lie duoes riot, I will
give it to him. Mr. OwrNb taid, in tubstance, " lie
hoped that what the " Junior Counsel" (alluding to
Mr. GARv,) had a i about the mechansies won d have
no bearing with the Jury; for if the istandard which
the "Junior Coumel '- judged them by was estab
hlshed, God only knows what would become of them."

than himself. They had always been upon
speaking termns, and of late young Smaithisen be
came passionately attached to her. b~eing ready
to accompany her at all times, and willing to
make any sacrifice to win her atffetions. As his
char-acter was not such as to seure him the es

advances were annoinig to her. He w-as only
tolerated on account of their famniiliarity through

like a mtonomnaniae towards her, accosting her
upon the streets, solieiting walks, requesting in

telling hinm she wns too busy to talk with him,
he drew a pistol and shtot her, the ball entering

nonte; and i'inding relief in a dose of morphine
ten years ago, andY being afraid of an injurious
effect upon the stomach that a continued taking
of opium in any form woutld produce, I conclu
ded to try snuffing1 morphineC, and alwvays finding
relief in a few minutes after sulinig a smnail
portion of morphine, atbout as large as a grain
of wheat; and having known it tried byothers,
and never without speedy relief, unless the head
was so stopped up that the morphine could not
be di-awn up, I have concluded that the discove
