stand on the same constitutional platform that

that, as there is an abundance of corn and hogs

death was caused by the rupture of a blood vessel, or

Ireland, and had been living in Hamburg some fifteen
years. He was a peaceful and law-abiding man. He
was about forty-five years old.

COLD WEATRER, AND COTTON.
~The breath of winter has been felt in our latitude,
but not yet with blighting In une i'e~ehave
been visible but not killing. The chainge I. a de.
lightful one,-healthful and bracing. Cotton how
ever is not yet touched on the uplands; It would not
matter if it had been, as almost the entire crop hai
matured. It is a mistake though, we think, to calca,
late upon the present crop being an undsually large
one. The rush to market would lead to this supposi.
tion. But this has been owing to the fact of the early
maturity of the crop, muperadded to the circumstancec
of fine prices, The plnters have, on these accounts,
been able to gather and willing to sell rapidly. Ai
least such has heen the case in Edgo014. We have
lately seen numerous cotton-fields in both . the pine
and oak lands ; and nearly the whole crop is open
and out,-most of it sold doubtless, Judging by onr
imediate section, w~e should say that-there are good
grounds for thinking that the crop of cotton standa
at present over-estimated. One thing it is delightful
to hear,-would that we could nll ace it! It is, that
money is becoming abundant throughout the country
and that the rates of money are rapidly falling.

MEDICAL COLLEGE OP GEORGIA.
The annual course of lectures in this institution
(says the Augusta Const itutionaliet,) began on Monday,
the 1st Inst. The exercises commenced with an ap..
propriate prayer by the Rev. Dr. Wilson, followed by
an introductory lecture by Prof. Hf. P. .Campbell.
The theme of the speaker was the character of the
inedical sciences, and their intimato relation to other
sciences. The subject was handled in an able and
interesting manner, and was well received by a large
audience of students and citizens..
It is due to Professor Campbell to state that Pro.
fessor Jones was the orator for the occasion; but
owing to his indisposition, the duty unexpectedly de
olved upon Professor C.; though we must say that
his addrdss gave no evidence of the haste with which
it was prepared.
From the number of students in attendance on the
irst day of the course, there is no doubt that the
cass will be a large one.

SENATOR HAMMOND'S BARNWELL
This admirable speech is displayed In full upon our
first page. It will receivo the close attention of the
people of South Carolina. It presents the indepen
dent views of an honest statesman and a man of
genius, actuated by a high sense of duty to his home
and his country. Let It be studied and heeded ac
Senator HAxMOND will perhaps be attacked upon
several of his points,-indeed he hs been attacked
already by the Charleston M/ercury, and one or two
of Its carping contributors. But lot us bear in mind
that the words of Wisdom are oft-times unpalatable
to the excitable and impetuous ;-And yet these last
are not without their uses. Checked by & superior
prudence, they servo to keep freemen awake to a
sense of thu difficulties that necessarily surround
them. Had they the reins in their grasp, then in.
deed would freedom at once become another name
for revolution. But held subservient to a matured
foresight, they act as a sort of alarm-guard against
all possible foos. Sometimes these foes are imagina
ry ;-but sometimes too they are real; although huge
ly magnified, it may be. It is the true statesman's
province, to direct this enthusiasm In the right chan
nel, if it be based upon realities; or to quench it i1
founded upon imaginary fears.
Such, as it appears to us, is the present course o
Senator HaMMoND. Respectful to all, and regardfu
of every one's honest opinions, he yet talks of things
as they appear to his own sound intellect. He speaki
confidently, because he soes clearly. Frofn the stand
point of his high endowments, he finds safety for the
South in the future of the Union. Yet, not over
trustful of his own prescience, he avows that, if mis
taken, he is ready to go with the foremost in any no.
cessary measure of Southern action.
We can but believe that the Senator's lofty and
truthful position will command for him the more cm
pfete confidence and admiration of South Carolina.

It is with m1elancholy satisfaction that we pay the
last tribute in our power to a friend of long standing
by copying a just notice of his life and char'acter from
the obituary department of the Charleston Mercury
No more perfect model of a Southern gentleman I
left living, than was tko lamented deceased. Sub

"Mr. Alston was a son of Wm. Algernon Alston
Esq., of Georgetown, and nephew of the distinguishe<
American, Washington Alaton. He wasn a native o

studies at the Virginia University. His planting In
terest and residence being in Georgetown, he repre
sented one of-the parishes of that District in the Stat
Legislature for- several terms. During this time, hi
very faithfully served his constitueney; and while hi
entire course, as a legislator, was conservative in
high degree, he never permittgd himself to be misles
by passion or swayed by prejudice. In 1854 he re
moved his residence to his native city. A priacipa
motive for this move, was the education of his chil

aceomplishment. It was here that thei leading fee
tures of his character fully developed themselves. J4

he ardently sought to be useful. Although he dik
not participate in the strife of ambition, nor seel

city in particular. His chief desire (and to this hi
used uneansing effort) was to generate and Inspiresa

Fired by the success of this temporary exhibition, anc

had searcely laid the foundation when he was suatchet

His private virtues were not less to be admired thai

THE BLUE RIDGE TUNNEL.
The Walballa Biannecr states that 800 hands are
now engaged on the great Tunnel of the Dlue Ridgi
rail road; that the progress is 52 feet a day; and thal
it is confidently believed the work will be completed
in 20 months more. This looks like a determination
to succeed. Let the Tunnel be finished, and it fol.
jows, irresistibly to our view, that the road will go on
steadily to its final conpletion,
The Bannsser suggests further aid from our Legis.
lature, and says:
"If South Carolina has any favorite ob'joct on
which to bestow her assistance, itshould be this Rail.
road. Our next Legislature, so far as we can learn,
will not hesitate to do all it can to put the State of
South Carolina In almost immediate connection witi
the great Mississippi River, and with all the WVest and
North-West generally. It is the true policy of the Pal.
metto State to bind Tennessee, Kentucky and the neigh.
boring slave States closely to her bosom, so that in
case of any serious eruption in the Union, she may
find not only interested friends, hut sistorly assistance
from the closest ties of neighborship and association.".
All very well, except that it is rather difficult to ap
preciate our progressive cotemporary's use of the

a sort of political small-pox? Which?

OBEIT UA R Y,
Miss FRANCES BROAD WATER is no moure ! She
breathed her last aboet 3 o'clock Monday morning,
the first of November, in the 23d year of her age,
daughter or Mr. Guy BROAn'waMn.
She was truly the pride and ornament or the family
circle. Sometimes a widowed sister claimed and re
esived her compiany and her kind and useful atten
tion ; and then it was a consolation to the family, and
especially her aged parents, to know that FANxy
would come home again. But alas ! now she Is gone
nevermore to return. May the disconsolate family
and friends of the deceased have the oonsolation of
the word of God, which says: " But I would not have
you to be ignorant brethren, concerning them which
are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as others which
have no hope ; for if we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, even so them which sleep in Jesus, will
God bring with him." She was baptised on a profes
sion of her faith, at the Baptist Church of Christ at
Rehoboth some four or five years ago, and adorned
the profession she made with a well ordered life and
pious conversation. " Blessed arc the dead that die
in the Lord." .D. D.
DIun, June 16ith, in Edgefield District, S. C., Mrs.
SUSANNAHI CAUGGUMAN, wife of Rev. Exx~Uxt.
CAUUMAs, in the 52d year of her age.
She becamo a member of the Evang. Lutheran
chu-ch in eairly life, and more than 27 years ago she
embraced Chriat In the parden end remission of her
sins bmy a living and evangelical faith. She found
great pleasure in training up her children in the nur
tur0 and admonition of the Lord, anid for their use
fulness in his kingdom; and she lived to see them all
converted to God by a saving and evangelical faith.
She wras kind and affectionate to all, and her hand
was ever open to administer to the wants of the dis
tressed. Truly brother Canghman and his motherless
children have lost one whom they never can forget
one for whom they may weep and mourn ; but they
tnourn not without hope, for they have every assu
rance, if they hold out faithful, they shall all meet her
again In the kingdom of immortal glory. She bore
her affliction with resignation and christian fortitude,
and the nearer she came to the portal of death the
stronger her faith grew; and would often exclaim,
" I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith, I
have finished my course," Ac. Thus she feel asleep
in Jesus. The writer preached at her funeral from 2
Tim., iv: 78. J. B.L.
