The great contest for Legislative honors, caens off
on Monday end Tuesday last, and the votes were
ocanted and declared on Wednesday evening. The
vote polled was not a very large ones the attention of
our citizens generally being more absorbed in the
ares and sympathies of the social circle, than in the
terusoils of the political arena. Still there were suf.

THE LATX FAIR.
Our agricultural fair of Friday last, passed off with
Ilying colors. The exhibition as a whole was worthy
of the district. The stuck show was especially fine.
ln the household department there was a capital ar
ray of good things. The hadies-work department,
and the department of Fine Arts, were also credita
bly Ailed. In the mechanical department, an admi
rable sawing.machine, by Mr. TILLxA WATSOs. Jr.,
attracted much attention. A vert complete little
clock i likowise worthy of particular mention, made
out.and-out in this village, by Mr. F. H. CANDr.E.
Many other articles were highly meritorious, but we
have not time to speak of them at present. .
It is cause of congratulation to our society, that its
third annual Fair has been so decided a success.
We invite the reader's attention to the election re

This is enough. We do not say that we admire
this style of prose composition,-certainly not as ap
plied to common narrative. It may though be effac
tively used (if well executed) on subjects of a florid
poetical cast; but there is danger in its too frequent
use. A pompous and turgid manner of expression
may be thereby engendered, from which a writer will
find it difficult to free his plen when his subject shall
require directness, terseness,-about abruldtness of
expression, to show it forth aright.
STATES RIa1ITS AND '0lIE DEMOCRACY.
Attention is asked to the following extrnct' from
lon. James L. Orr's Craytonville Speech. It repro
sents that gentleman's political opinions in a mure
faviorable light than some are disposed to view them.
Reflecting men *ill read and decide fur themselves
the extent of Col. Orr's nationalism. We are no apol.
ogist for him or fur any other politician. Yet it is
but fair to let him speak fur himself, While others are
so freely canvassing his merits as a stateaman and
assailing his purity as a patriot. Without further re.
marks we append the extracts.
"4I now proceed to consider the power and purpose
of the Democratic party to uphold the Constitution
and preserve the Union. I was gratified to seu that Sen.
ator Hammond, in Iis late speech, declared that he
did not perceive the signitienney of the term "State
Rights Domocrats" and "National Democrats" at
the present time. The organizat-ion of the party it
upon certain declared principles-they are general,
and address themselves to the confidence of men wh<
subscribo to those principles residing in all suctlons
and if the party is designated as the " National De
mocracy," it Is because its tenets are not restricted to
any section, but emubruee the whole Union, and not be.
cause any of its principles are centralizing or consol.
idating. It has outlived the WhIg party, the Know.
Nothing party,'and I trust it will survive the republi
can party. My observation teaches me that those in
the South who aro most bitter in their denunciation
of the "National Democracy" (as they are pleased t<
designate it) are either Know Nothings or per me dis.
unionist, and as I have no principles in common witl
either of them, I havo for years been content to re
coive their strictures and animadversions with patien
I say to you fellow citizens. that the Dumocrati
party is entitled to your cordial sympathy as well w
your zealous support. It is the only exponent of tht
principles you have tcheriebead for many long years
and is the only patyh willing and able to mainutaih
your rights in the Union. When it is defeated o
disintegrated, yuu must choose between a submissiom
to sectional fanatical domination and a dissolution e
the existing Glovernment. Its principles have re
ceived the sanction of my judgment from umy earlies
mamnhood, and since 1852 1 have acted in full harmo
ny and fellowship in its organitgation, and why
There had been In 1850 and 1851, in nmost of th
Southern States, a boutest between what was callei
the States lIights and Union parties, growing oute
the passage of the Compromise measures. It resulte<
in a determiinationi on thme part of the South to aequi
ese in it ; and whe'n the convention met at Bhaltimor
in June, 1852, to nominate candidates for the Presi
Idency and Vico Presidency, I found thero (as a spet
tator, and not as a delegate) both wvings of the De
9tgy~tidi ,*Rjghts..gT.Ugin y4g~
united in adopting a platform of principles. Tb
contest of'50 and '51 bad revived into a living issu
the old States Rights doctrines of'98 and '99. Exceli
Iperhaps in Virginia and South Carolina previous
that time, they had nearly become obsolete. Thm
iState Rights men insisted that these resolutions shout,
be,incorporated In the platform, andl become a vita
article in the Democratic creedl. It was unanimoust,
conceded, and the resolutions of'98 and '99-the ver
cornerston-the highest exposition of States Right
was incorporated in the platform. It made the Dem
-ocratic creed perfect, and from that, I determine
upon a hearty and cordial affiliation with the party il
its organization. In 1856, at Cincinati, these princi
.ples were re-adopted, and the Democracy from Main
to Texas, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific, ar
pledged in the most solemn manner to the suppor
and maintaimnance of the strictest reading of the State
Rights doctrines. Every man, therefore, of that faiti
must affiliate with the Demecracy, If he expects aid il
enforcing his views on the administration of the Gov
enent. The Democratic party, if it continues tru
to its creed and principles, is as good a States Right
party as I desire to associate with. I go further-ni
conscientious maw can be a Democrat standing 01
that platformi who is nut a States Itights wan. Witi
those undeniable facts before as, does not the asump
tion of a few persons in the South that they are put
e.rcellensce the States Rtights Demnocrats rest upon I
narrow basis? The feud between the two wings wa
buried at Baltimore in 1852 by all uniting on a com
men platform; the treaty of amity and friendship wa
reaflimed at Cincinati In 1S56, and is it good faith ii
either of the former wings to make a peculiar appro
priation of any of die tenets of the common party. I
Madison and Jefferson arc authority, then the Dtem
oratie party is imbued with alt the elements of Stati
Rights. If their views are considered too moderati
for any medern statesman, then such may except t,
the creed of the Democracy; bet believing as I do
that it is the only pirinciple upon which this Giovern
ment can be safely or justly administeredl, I sin per.
fctly content to take the exposition of the able ant
patriotic men who formed the Constitution, and whn
luidated its principles during the administration oi
?4r, Pierce placed himself on the platform of 1852
whep he acpptsd the nomination. Did not every aci
of Ihis 4dmnisistrating ,;lgbbig gsawprying fidelity tt
its principles ? Mr. iluchanas did the sams thing in
lS8fi. Tn what single act of his A4dnqinistration ham
he repudiated the platform, or ignored any article ni
the State Rights creed? So it will hemi 1tl0, and witl
continue as tong as thle Democratic party maintains ith
organization. It could scarcely he otherwise-the
Executive, upon his nomination, solemnly pledges
himself to his friends and opponents that he will ad.
minister the Government in strict contjprmity to the
principles laid down by his friends; if those principles
do not, reflect his sentiments, and he cannot carry
them into execution, every aentiment of honor would
ipel him to decline the nomination. When he ex
epts, to prove faithless to his pledges, would entail
on him such deep dishonor as to drive bim In shame
from the face of society; and I undertake here to say,
tat no man who wiltlever become the standard bearer
f themeocracy for the Presidency will have the
tsgferty tp [p.itorgqusly abatndon die principles and
platformp ysppq whieh he is elected. What has the
emocratic party doas to manifest its faith by its
'york? The statutp book or 1ongtap 'ri show that
*l yesur .egastitsltlopal rights are iop aaqrs fmelly re

have been for forty y'sprs, an4 you arp inqshtp4 Wit
the Democratic party for It all.
Whenever the Democratic party ceases in good
faidi to execute its professed principles, I shall
cease to support it. Whenever that party fails to lay
down correct principles, I shall ab'jure its organiza
tion. Till die happening of one of these events, my
voice and vote will ever be at its service. When It
perishes, the wreck of the Union will cover Its grave,
and I look upon the happening of that catastrophe
with more solicitude as I grow older. A eobbler'in a
few hours can destroy the meat splendid architectual
lgjJ; to restore it in its symmetry and grandeur is thu
,work of ypyg nf patipat toil bymaster mochanies. It

native was presented to the Sopth of contInuIng in ties
Union m's inferiors in the rights and privileges of a
common -Government, or to ~dissolve the Union, we
should not hesitate in choosing the latter. Neither
States nor individuals can look upon life as a boon, if
it is to be spent in disgrace-conscious of self-degra

Oh! tell we not my sol hath gifts
The lofty and the high;
They cannot bring that happine's5
For which I o'er muOt sigh.
I'd give them all for one kind word,
One gently whispered tone
That spoke not of my fame, but loved
Me for my heart iloe.
Oh! tell me not in measured words
That genius bright is mine,
I only want one loving heart
Around my own to twine.
Call not my lot an envied one,
The chilling laurel wreath
That shades my brow, but serves to hide
An aching heart beneath.
Oh ! tell me not that poesy
Breathes in my simple lays, 16
I seek not adwiratiop's-smile,
Nor careless words of praise;
If all the fame that earth can give
To day could be my own,
I'd willingly resign It all
To hear one loving tone.
Say, dust thou funey can live
Upon the world's applause ?
Paine cannot crush the canker worm
That in my bosom gnaws;
It can not still those bitter throbs
The sensitive'must feel,
Nor with its trumpet burst respond
To woman's heart-appeal.
Must I because the fatal gift
Of poesy is mine,
Leave every feelingof the heart
In loneliness to pine ?
The lowliest cottage Iaad that breat!is
To summer winds her sigh
And dreameth but if simple things
Is happier than '

L ANws loXNET.-thie Home Juurnal for thi
current week is thus severe on Ladies' Boninets
We quote for the ladies:
"A bonnet is designed to protect the head ani
face, in the e.iternal air, from cold, dust, light
etc.: and to do this, it should cover the head ani
shade the face. And, for ceiiturics it was so con.
structed as to performn these oflijes. Within e
very few year. from the present time, however
bonnets have been gradually reduced in size, nn
til the face is entirely exposed, and all of th<
head is left uncovered except a circle on the
back of the head about six inches in diameter
the very place which is already abundantly pro
tected from cold by the coil of~ a lady's hair, con
fined there by her comb. So that, in fact, a boin
n!et, has ceased to fulfil any of the conditions oj
its constructions; and, " but for the namue of the
thing," might as well be abandoned altogether,
This is an extraordinary result. The bonnet has,
for all practical purposes, ceased to be an article
of a lady's costume. Her face, therefore, is wan
tonly exposed to the bright burning rays of the
sun, which indeed a parasol may ward off; and it
is boldly exhibited, both in front and in profile,
to the public gaze, against which no parasol can
ayail. Then, her hair, which unlikp the short
hiair of a man, cannot he readily bpushed aiid

beinig far the moat important-this unnatural ex
posure of the bare head to the extreme cold of
our wiinters, leads many women to a premature
Why is this ? .

exercising her prerogative of the one woman

Dran, at her father's residence in this place, r
Monday the 18th instant, LAURA J., daughter of W.
F. DiisoF., Esq., in the thirteenth year of her age.
How melancholy is the record of Death, when
youth, and health, and loveliness, are made to fall be
neath his relentless blow ! How painful, when the
innocent bud is blasted that was ju.t beginding to
disclose its fragrant blooming to all around! Such
was our gentle LAURA. Dear, dutiful child! She
has been snatched front our hearthstone foreier, and
the mournful memory of her many endearing traits is
all that remains of her. No! No!-there is more
than this. There is the certainty of faith, which tells
us that her immortal spirit has flown away to Heaven,
there to await the coming of the beloved ones she has
left behind on earth. Oh ! that we may be enabled
to follow where she has gone before us! Farewell,
blest angel, for a while.
Of earth's ties bereft,
One hope is still left,
We'll all meet again in the morning.
Di.p, in Edgefield Village on the night of the 13th,
of October, ISAAC MATIIIAS JONES, in the 18th,
year of his age. The melaneholt gloom and deep
feeling of grief that pervades our whole commu
nity, evinces a proper appreciation of the sad cir
eumstances that caused his untimely end; and is an
appropriate tribute to the many virtues that adorned
the character of the unfortupate deceased. He was
no ordinary boy: you had but to look upon him to
see that nature had stamped upon his brow true no
bility. Possessing all those rare and noble qualities,
'both of the head and heart, that are sure to win the
admiration of every one, he was justly estoented a
universal favorite. lie was a dutiful and obedient
son, kind and affectionate brother, and a generous
and devoted friend; enjoying not only the confidence
of his schoolmates and companions, but by his fasci
nating manners he had won the hearts of many older
than himself. le was intellectual, handsome, cour
teous and brave; in fact he possessed all the elements
that go to the formation of a perfect man; and had
he but lived to have cultivated the brilliant talents
that nature had given him he must have realized the
hopes of his parents and friends, and fulfilled a high
destiny in whatever sphere of society he may have
moved. It is true, that. he was not free from that
waywardness that is incident to his age, and that is
the usual accompaniment of superior mental endow
ments. If he had any faults, in the eyes of the charita
itable, they leaned towards virtues side. His death

f It is seldom that we are called upon to mourn a
more afflicting dispensation of Providence. This es
timable young lady was just entering upon lifu with
, the fairest hopes of earthly happiness. Possessed of
a large share (of those charms which adorn her sex ;
sh had, also, an excelledt and cultivated mind, and
a heart full of affection and kindness and charity.
Instead of the bridal favors, i-he wits soon to have
worn, she was decked in the habiliments of the grave.
It was not for her to bear the weight of years, but a
sail destiny prepared for her an early totub. She
bore her fate with christian resignation, saying, with
her last utterance, " coume unto me, all that are weary
an.1 heavy luden, and I will give you re"L" If we
drew our consolations from the philosophy of earth,
in vain would we find couiderations to assuage our
grief. This we can only gain front the revelation of
christianity. From that inspired source, we feel that,
though she is dead, she yet liveth, and that our loss
is her very great gain. Per gentle spirit, in throw
ing off the fetters of the flesh, has but plumed itself
for a speedier flight to the bosom of her Saviour and
