OUR VILLAGIC STOtES.
Messrs. BANa & BUTLRa have resupplied their
shelves for the winter, as will be teen by their card.
It is needless to speak of the taste and exoellenoce of
tiis house, here, where it has been so lung and favora
bly known. Broadway cannot buast a man of more
taste than BUTLER; and BLAND is but another ron
- doring of -A No. 1," in every respect.
Mr. EDMUO Paxx ha also a very full aud a very
beautiful stook of goods. The old man has tried him
self this season, and beat himself too. His many
friends and patrons cannot fail to bo delighted with
his fall exposition, especially when rhown up, as it is,
ly the most obliging and politost of clerks.

Cards come in.
- ONE OF TEIE VER Y BEST.
VaN WzzNcL's clothing store is located a door or
two below the United States Hotel in Augusta. It is
a really fashionable establinhmeut. His tailoring de
portment is well appointed, and his cloths are of the
best. There is no better hourc of the kind anywhere
than VAx Wixxis's. This the Augusta gentlemen
well know, and he wishes the Edgeleld gentlemen to
know it also.
ANOTHER. GOOD ONE.
BtGqo's clothing store is an attractive place to one
wanting a good article at a moderate price. Biosox
has a varied assortment; and what is more, he has
our old friend and follow-citison, Jous Lyox, to
tell the people about his fine stock and to strike
every man's taste centrally. L6.i always could do
this to a T.
THE SWEETh 5f YET.
Gus Pmnaaica's eenfeotionery still takes the lead
In the realm of candies, sugarplumu,. fruits, cordials,
wines, segars and all that sort of thitsg. There he is
.at his old stand, with every thing in eiien brighter
condition than usual. Nobody needs to be told
where this extensive cunfeotionery is looated.
ACCIDENT IN IIAMBUILG.
We learn through our Hamburg correspondent that
a sad accident occurred there on Saturday last, the
30th ult. A youth about seventeen years old, by the
name of TuoxAs Sa:Lma, whilst at work on the new
bridge of the South Carolina Rail Road, fell into the
River and was drowned. His body had not been
found on Monday morning.
A FINE OPINING.
Attention is asked to the notice of the Trustees of
the Edgefield Male Academy. We hositate not tosay,
that for an elicient teacher here is one of the finest
openings in the State. Will the Carolinian, in copy
ing advertisement, please give it a brief editorial no.
tice. For a first rate teacher (we want no other) lib
eral arrangements will be made.
It is perhaps due to Mr. Nicicensox, P. M.
at Big Creek, in this Dietrict, to state that a letter
which hsome time since forwarded to us containing
, $10 and which we supposed lost, and of which we had
spoken to some of our Big Creek friends was re
ceived in due time at this Offie, but through the neg
lect of our "Beell" was misplaced for nca~r two weeks.
.Mr. N: Is a prompt and an attentive Post Master, and
we return him our thanks for various favors.
At the risk of re-arousing the "Newberry Vindic
tives," we till say "old Hamburg ;" and we will
moreover say, "hurrah for old HamburgP But it is
not the '4 Vindlctives" we are after this time: It is'
the Winnsboro..Regisr, who has been twitting old
-Hamburg in connection with her late fire ; says he
did not think there was $5,000 in the burgh, to be
lost; and adds an expressIon of wonder, as to how
v many more than five people are there to lose by fire.
We will tell you, brother Register, that there are
mere thing;, not only in heaven and earth, but in
Hamburg also, than you have dreampt of in your
philosophy. -There are perhaps no "spetted mice"
for an editor to show up to an admiring constituency,
-such as the one Mr. Sxanv showed to you, and
which was caught---(sersbile dieru)-by so sublu
nary an artifice as "a common wire mouse-trap."
-But there is a set of the best cotton-buyers there in
all these Southern States of ours, who give the best
of prices, and could supply South Carolina, if need
be, with the best of planter's goods of all description;,
and of groceries, liquors Ac, &c., all which it would
be entirely too tedious to enumerate. Yes, brother
Register, we repeat it because we know it;-they are
the best ootton-buyers in the South. They were giv
ing 11) the other day when your redoubtable Winna
boro buyers, according to your own account, could
only squeeze out l0j for the choicest article ; And
the week your men succeeded in buying. 182 bales,
ours bought more than a thousand. That ought tio
be talk enough to settle the question. And this is
the course of affairs all the winter, and every winter,
with us. We respectfully defy you, brother Register,
to beat Hasuno with Winnsboro,-we had almost
saId you might throw in Cotton-town of Columbia.
But this would perhaps be going a little too far. Cor
tain it Is though, that Winnaboro' can't come it, with
all the Cotton-buyers and spotted mice she can pro
And then if we chose to go on and contrast our
Hamburg Bank with your little Fairfield concern,
but, no ! we wont press the eontrast. The very idea
of comparing Hamburg with Winnaboro is enough to
raise up the shade of SacULTZ. Come,-" no more oif
that, Hal, an thou lowest me."
Messrs. WooLEr A Soxw, residing between Granitc
ville village and the Graniteville Depot, have estab
lished a bat-making business which deserves honorable
mention. Tbey exhibited specimens of their work at
.our late District Fair, which readily took a premium.
Their hats of all kinds commanded general admnirn
tion. Having procurod one for our own caput, we can
speak advisedly upon the subject. Mr. Wota's
fine dress bats are of superior quality; and, though
-very taking at first sight, they decidedly improve on
acquaintance. The one we now wear is a capital hat,
and we like it better and better every day. General
McGowa, of Abbeville, wore ofl one from his last
visit down this way, and we have no doubt he is de
lighted with It. AlU who have tried them, like them.
An experienced dealer in the article examined ours
the other day, and, not knowing it was of Bdgefield
manufacture, frankly gave the opinion that it was a
first rate hat. This is the -candid expression of one
who trades with the beat houses of New York. Mr.
Wootar not only makes flee hats but common ones,
-not only men's hats but boy's hats,--plantation hats
and business hats,--young America's hats and Sena
tors' hats. We wish him much good luck in his busi
ness. He ought to be encouraged In his handbpmo
-and useful branch of manufactures. Mr. WOOtaY,
we had almost forget to say, took the premium at the
last Charleston Fair, and we confidently predict that
he will do so at the approaching Columbia Fair.
Why? Because his work is good, and no mistake.
Under the circumstances, should not Mr. WooLlY be
encouraged, especially by the people of Edgefield
among whom he has east him lot? Surely he should.
Send down then to him' at Granltevlle;-send your
sneasures and order your bats. Try him,. merchants.
Try him, planters. Try him, all of you. His enter
prise Is a good one. us work is good. Him prices
are fair. His hats are both fine and oomfortable.
Try him once, and we veoiture to say you will try
him again. _

AUGUSTA ;-RR FALL TRADE, C.
Having spent a day or two of the past week in this
Sny little city, we note briefly a few facts and ro
1. It may not. from present appearances, he long
before it will be both improper and incorrect to speak
of AuorsSA as a "194tl city." Indeed it is by some
considered wrong to do w. now. A city with mtire
than twinty thousand inbubitants is no insignificant
plate even in the old countries; and here at the South,
where towns in general grow slowly, it must be al
lowed to take a raak of decided respectability. Au
GUavi's growth has been so rapid of late years as to
form an exception to the rule of progress among our
Southern cities. The geography-makers have not,
been able to keep up with her increasing numbers.
The very latest of them, of 1857, report her as having
a population of 15,000; whereas it is thought, and
one of her most prominent and accurately-informed
citizens so remarked to us the other day, that 22,000
would scarcely be above the mark. This increase
continue. to advance daily ; and should it not be re
tarded ly any future counteracting cause, A UGUSTA
will become in less than twenty years one of the iost
populous and important cities of the South. The
railroads which converge, in her bosom as it were,
have been the principal influences in unfolding her
capsilities. There is no reason that these influences
should not become more potent as the country be.
comes richer. A single other road though ought to
be built, to hisure the city's prosperity. We mean
one to load out through tie heart of Edgefield and
Newberry distriets on the South Carolina sile, in the
direction of Winnsboro or Chester. Such a road
would effectually secure to Arousm almost the sntire
trade (of not only Edgoileld and Newberry, but also
of Abbeville, Anderson, Pickens, Greenville, Laurens,
Union and Spartanburg districts; and it would proba
bly also draw a large portion of the trade of Fair.flold,
York and the other Northern districts of our State.
We say, if the people of AUausTA desire to clinch the
nail of their prosperity, this is the road for them to
build. They would also receive by its instrumentality
their full proportion of any trado that may hereafter
be brought on by the Rabon Gap route; and quite as
effectually too as they could have done by the lately
contemplated road up the Savannah Valley. The men
of AvacsrTA are both sagacious and hold In their en
terprizes, and it will be matter of rurprise if they con
tinue much longer to overlook the advantages within
their grasp which we have barely indicated. It is no
vision of fancy to which we would call their attention,
but a reality that would tend as much as any other
means that can be named to mako their beautiful
town the Cincinnati of the South. Do this, and the
merchants of CAarleston would not be slow in estab
lishing their wholesale houses in your midst. There
is already some temptation for them to do this. In
crease that temptation by increasing the links of
your already varied advantages, and you will have
them certain. What then might not AcaUSTA aspire
to among the cities of the South. Those extensive
commons of hers, so superbly adapted for the purpo
ses of a great city,-would then be speedily converted
into equares of industry and wealth, and many a
magnificent block would arise where to-day the cows
are grazing in undisturbed freedom. Surely nature
intended those commons for a considerable purpose.
Destiny is now almost pointing her finger at them as
a spot to be called into requisition in the economy of
Southern prosperity. Lot the men of Av UusTA be up
and doing, nor suffer the present day to paso unim
proveo. They are already known for their energy,
and skill, and nerve. Now is the moment of their
fortune. They should strike while the Iron is hot.
There are advantages within their reach of manifold
value. Now is the hour for securing them. Carpe
diem, and AUGusTA will yet he, what all who are con
venient to her most earnestly hope she will be, the
groat inland city of the South.
2. The Fall Trade of AucusTA appears to have
been never so large as at present. Business men are
driving a good season in almost all the departments
of trade. In consequence, there is a look of hope and
vivacity about the whole place. The limits of busi
ness are daily extending up and down Droad Street,
on the eross streets also, and on the street parallel to
Broad, near th'e rive'r. Up Broad Street, in the vi
cinity of the Planter's Hotel, rent has eaneid9 ea.
or fear hundred per cent in the last two or three
years. Down Broad Street, opposite the Augusta
Hotel, and indeed on both sides, the improvements
are many and permanent. Every tenement too is oc
cupied, from the lower to the upper market, and so
occupied as to give evidence of the stimulus of a gen
uine prosperity. The cotton trade is large and stir
ring. High prices have been readily paid thus far
during the present season. Planters have been satis
fied to their heart's content. They have therefore pur.
chased liberally, they and their wives, and their
daughters ; and the effects have been largely felt in
the dry goods business. A more splendid- array of
articles in this department was never seen in AUcustA
before; and they have taken wings and fluwn into
every part of the surrounding country, marked down
to the lowest remunerative prices. We advertise for
many of tihe very heat of the dry-goods houses, and
have had occasion to examine their stocks. As of
these, so of the grocery establisments,-the shoe, the
jewlry, and the drug houses,-the music stores, and
so on,-they are all in spanking condition, and all do
ing well. See our columns fbsr the best AUGUsTA
houses of all kinds. We congratulate them upon
their present ceerful and active reason. Nor does
our congratulation spring from the consideration of
their generous patronage of our paper, but rather
from the good will we have always had towards their
city and from a consciousness of the advantages that
continually acerue to our people from the increase of
her means and facilities.
3. The season of theatrical amusements has not
yet opened in Augusta. But a good onec is anticipated
uder the management of Mr. MancrANT. His com
pany will bea there abount the 20th inst. An English
Opera Troupe will supply a portion of the winter's
amusement; and among the stars of the legitimate
drama, Miss ELazA Lo A~s is announced. It is proba
ble, as we learned, that un experiment will he made
upon our Edgefiuld boards by a puortion of Mr. MAn
cnaw's company dutring Christmas. We imagine
that many of our citizens would rellsh a few good en
tertainments about that time, especially if Miss Looax
is to be one of the party. In Augusta the drama is
poorly sustained. Those who lead the ton never turn
out except at a representation that is really rechcrulae;
and then there is a large religious class who never
visit such places. We scarcely know whether they
are right or wrong in this. Each one's conscieneo is
his own best monitor in such eases. AUcGUSTA is cer
tainly far more a city of churches than of theatres
and balls; and doubtless the customary order and so
briety of the plae are attributable to this happy fact.
Yet this remark is not made in enmity to the Drama.
If as the world goes these things must be, why in all
reason let them be arranged properly and enacted
well. And if it is still to be the course of things that
young people must visit'thesescenes of comparatively
innocent pastime, it is certainly rational that they
should do so within the influence of parental authori
ty and under the check of a prudent moderation.
4. But we are spinning a somewhat longer yarn
than was intended. One word, before closing, about
the Plater's Wotel of Augusta. It is a delightfull
quiet and orderly establishment, and in most respects
a remarkably well-kept house under its present pro.
prietorship. The table is decidedly good and the ser
vants are admirably disciplined. Their attention,
both at table and elsewhere, is prompt and satisfacto
ry. Many visitors concur in regarding the Plater'.
one of the very best hotels in the eountry. Those are
our sentiments at any rate.
An exchange gives the following truthful observa
tle, which some we wet of might profit by :
"When you see a man in business who will not ad.
tertise or take a newspaper, look out for a mean,
penurious skin flint, too tight to enjoy good health,
and who holds a penny so near his eyes that he can't
see a dollar." -
pmEx-Gov. John J. McRae, recently elected to
Congress from Mississippi, as successor to Gen. Quit
men, is in favor of re-opening the slave-trade. In a
letter to the S'outlera Citizea he says: "It can be
demonstrated, I think, that the whole mass of the
legislation of Chngreas, and consequently the action
of the treaty-making power, is unanthorised by the
THE EDGEFILD PLANK ROAD.
It Is not our present purpore to cast censure upon
the. managers of this road. True, it Is for the
most part in bad condition and in some places exceed
ingly rough. But we know that the Company have
had lossos and diffioulties of no alight magnitude to
contend with, and the knowledge of this fact disposed
us to judge them leniently.
But many peek to learn how much longer this pro
bation of adversity Is to continue, and whether it is
not nuw ne: rly time that the old debts of the Compa
ny were liquidated and ,norglabor pt to the work of
r.buildingy the road. It is hoped that tho income of
the current season will be amply sufficient to effect
both of these ends. And we think the indications
point to this conclusion. A limited number of hands
aro now engaged in relaying tie worst parts of the
road. Their progress is something less than a hun
dred yards a day under the most favorable circum
stances. Yet even this is something doing in the right
direction. We trust It is but the harbinger of largely
increased operations at an early day. If the compa
ny could but find themselves able to renew as much
as two miles of the road per month, it would be an
ovent to be rejoiced at by all of us. Can it not be so?
We appeal to Mr. Cunar, the able and esteemed
president of the road, and ask Lim, in behalf of an
anxious public, if it will not be possible to increase
his working force to this extent within the next six
months? It duoes seem to us that the true policy of
the Company, now, is to devote all their profits to the
reconstruction of the road. If the people could have
reason to believe that this were done, we can but think
that they would be satisfed, and, more than this, that
they would determine, all of them, to help the Com
pany on with all their custom at even an increase on
the present rates of toll. Certainly every reflecting
and good citizen would do this. All are fully aware,
who are aware of any thing at all, that this Plank
Road is a 'hin of the highest utility. If each one
will think over ie matter, he will assuredly come to
the conclusion that the change back to the old sandy
road of past days would be a serious misfortune to
our District. Let then the Company show that they
are in earnest for the speedy re-building of their road;
let them make this clear to the people by some-such
actual increase of labor as will justify the expectation
that in a year or two all will be right again; and it
may be deponded upon, we think, that ovary planter,
and farmer, and wagouer, and traveller, in the Dis
trict, will come to the rescue with a spirit of liberal
encouragement. The Indications then, we repeat,
seem to be, that such is the company's intention. It
really cheored us the other day to trot over a few
hundred yardsof new road. It makes every one feel
glad to. see even these little beginnings of the right
kind oPl repairs. Can we not mopo that they will be
increase.d? When Mr. Cunar shall have saved this
road to the District, he will be entitled 0o the proud
position of a public benefactor. Our belief is, that
he intends to do so. Let us all then lend a helping
hand. With you ask, how? The answer is, by
fostering the eitort with our patronago unfailingly.
It is needless to say what we mean by this. Every
one undarstanls us. Lot the people all do their part,
and we are persuaded that the Company and the Com
pany's president will do theirs.' Thus will the road
be renewed. Otherwiso, it must eventually fall into
ruin. Let it fall, and we will regret, too late, advan
tages lost, perhaps never to be regained. Let it fall,
and Edgefield may well be pointed at as the Rip Van
Winkle of South Carolina.
Let us think of this matter, follow-citizons, and let
each one of us do what his good sense dictates in the
premises. But especially, Mr. President and Gentle
men of the Plank Road Company, Increase your work,
-ncrease your work, IF IT BiE POSSIBLE.
CHAnLEsTOx, October 29th, 1858.
, Tho frequent and increasing depredations on Mail
Routes from this City to the Southward, have exci
ted so general complaint as to attract the attention of
the Poat Offie authorities. On Friday last, a letter
was addressed to the District Attorney informing him
that the writer had a few days* before met the mail
rider on the Jacksonboro road, and after passing him
a quarter of amile, ho found aletter lying in the road,
,ptmarke'd,.opened and apparently dropped. Fursther_
-raitin -froiberies between Adam's iun and
Charleston having been communicated to the Dis
trict Attorney, he took measures for the arrest of
W1m. Simpson, one of the mail riders Implicated, who
was taken and lodged in jail by the Deputy Marshal,
while engaged in delivering his letters at the Post
Offie. In his bag were several letters which had
been opened, and four were found on his person. The
ease will be trIed at C'olumbia in Decemaber.
A negro-boy, 17 years of age, was arrested and
placed in the Guard House last week, suspeeted of
having been concerned in some of the Incendiary
work lately going on in the Upper Ward. Hie man
aged to escape from his imprisonment, but was pur.
seed and discovered at his owners premises, corner of
King and Queen Streets. On being a second time
detected, he sprang from an upper window and es
caped. Again the Polico were after him, and found
him near the Iine Street Rail Road Depot, (i femude
drews. The account ho gives of his escape from.the
Guard House is, that be succeeded in getting out of
the cell when the door was opened, crept stealthily
into the yard of the Captain of Police, went into his
Kitchen for a drink of water, and elipped quietly out
into the Street, saluting the ladies of the house as be
passed by the door.

by Rev. M. N. Strickland, to WIrLLrAx L. TrDwELLr,
on the 20th January 1858. Thus was cut down in
the bloom of early life, by a sudden and distressing

that our Saviour has said, "Suffer little children to
come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the
Kingdom of Heaven." B. F. W.
