TO THE CITIZENS OF EDGEFIELD.
FELLOW C1T1ZPXs:-All in our village, and even
most, if not all in our District, are aware of my hum
ble efforts to build a Catholic Church at the Court
House. The liberality and generosity of many among
you have encouraged me to do so, and have given the
first momentum to my movements. The rapid pro
gress of the work, and Its present fine appearance,
have induced many to enquire, "Where did the'money
come from?" "When will it be finished ?" To an
swer these enquiries and to gratify our numerous
friends, and all benevolent citizens, I pen this commu
In order to co-operate with the first contributors
and further their commencement, I have traveled
South and Northward, on a collecting tour. No one
could be better received, more kindly treated, or more
goncrously aided than I was; not only by Catholic
Bishops, Priests and people, but even by many of the
various Denominations, whose acquaintance I had the
pleasure of making long before Edgefield was inclu
ded in my mission, and whose generosity proved that
I was not forgotten by them, though time and absence
had intervened. So far as Iwent I was indeed every
At the very start, I made it a primary duty to pay
from the funds collected by myself, for the Lot on
.which the Church stands, and even for the cost of the
Title Deeds. And hence, I wish now publicly to state,
there is not one dollar contributed by Catholics
or others in Edgefield District, appropriated to that
purchase. Their contributions have been used as
they intended, solely to aid in building the Church.
The recent crashing and suspension of Banks in
duced me to return to Edgefield with what I collected.
On or about the 1st of last January, I entered the
quarry. There I spared neither personal labor nor
toll in bringing from afar, the necessary implements.
I gathered around me faithful laborers, competent
m.chanics, and a very skilful and efficient foreman,
Mr. P. WusEismt; and assumed myself, without any
contractor, the worrying functions of general super.
intendant. The walls soon rose above their founda
tions, grew upwards with the advance of each Winter
and-Smmer month, andnow, with ripening Autumn,
they are finished, roofed and nearly slate-clad, against
the approaching winter.
The Church, even as it is, in its beautiful Medieval
Architectural appearance, the design of Mr. Nisanssic,
Architect of our State House in Columbia, seems al
ready worthy of God, and an ornament to our Vil
lage, both which objects I had constantly Iu view from
the beginning. Rt Rev. Dr. LYXcE, when here a
few months ago, said it was the finest specimen of
masonry South of Baltimore. It is4he assertion of
gentlemen who have seen both, that it now ranks next
to the Cathedral in Charleston, and has no compari
son in the Diocess.
Thus, instead of half burned brick, or a sort of
that seemed to offer at first, and with ihich we deter
mined to build,-through the kindness and permission
of friends, I went from field to field in search of bet
ter stone, and finally succeeded with great labor and
considerable expense, in reaching here and there as
much One blue and gray granite as sufficed to the lres
eat; and soon I hope, with God's blesaing, I shall
have quarried as much as will finish the Turret.
Thus, instead of mere common discolored and un
sightly stone walls and shingled roof, which was all
our most zealous friends at first could hope for, we
have now, through the goodness and favor of God, a.
beautiful granite Gothic Church, which is nearly
But what shall I say of our fellow-citizens who so
generously patronized, encouraged and suetained me ?
Shall I name those gentlemen who bestowed so many
favors and afforded me so many facilities? It would
be invidious to do so. The disposition was general,
and in order to be just, I should include all; for all,
of all denominations, were personally kind, roartly
and encouraging to me. The mute walls of the
Churcb and my silent gratippl~e, are far more expres
sive than a load of words, of what I feel; and that
feeling and appreciation shall, with God's blessing,
increase with the years lie may allow me, and last
till my death.
I might now begin to plaster had I the mneans. But
I have not. It took all, and much more then I had,
to sustain the work thus far, to put the Church se
urely under cover, and to pay off fully all the Me
chanIcs, 8tone Cutters and Masons, and also the la
borers. I am .onsequenmtly compelled at present to
suspend the work on the Turret, which is already
above the roof, and must of necessity givo It tuore
than ample time to settle. Hence I can neither now
nnish the Turret or begin the plastering, till the debts
alret 'contracted for roofing and slating are paid,
and unt:l we shall have in hands besides, what will
enable us to fit the Church for divine service. Pru
dence and justice dictste this course.
To meet these obstacles and to resume and finish
in duo time, I hold that God is as good now as ever,
and wrill be. With His blessing, and with the re
nwedl exertion of our few but zealous and generous
Catholks, anJ our inany co-operating friends, who
recently doubled their flp4 rphscriptions-with the
payment of gmpip subscriptions thast arp still due
with the liberality of those gho have not yet contribu
td, and who may be disposed to aid us; these, to
gether with my own humble efforts, will, ere very long,
nable us to finish and enter the Church-and there
to adore and praise the God of our salvation, and to
pray from our hearts, with charity unfeigned, for the
eternal and temporal happiness of all of every clsa's,
in and out of Edgefield, who everywhere contributed
te aid us.
With high regard and deepst gratlitld, I api, ful
lo-citizens, your very humble and devoted servant,
For the Advertiser.
DuAu: Ention :-I read an artice in your papmer of
last week that dont suit me exactly, and I want to
write and tell you what I thiulk about it, that is if
you will let me. You know I am an old mann, and a
very plain man, only a farmer,-neither rich, proud,
nor city bred-still I think you will give me a small
space in your valuable and useful paper. The arti
cle I speak of was headed "Poets and Poetry," and
ppeared to me to be an attempt at criticism on news
paper poetry. Now, Mr. Editor, I dont believe in
critiising one another; and you know there is an
old snying that " people who live in glass houses must
not throw stones." I dont mean any offence to any
body, but that is an old saying you 'know. And
another thing, I think it looks like casting reflection
on the Editors to criticise what they sOO fit to pub
lish ; for if any thing is sent to thepi and they 4ont
thiak it fit to put in the paper, why all they haye to
do is to leave it out, and say nothing about it; and
it dount look right to me for any one to make remarks
about poetry that the Editors think good enough to
All women are not gifted alike-some are gifted in
one way, some ini aniother. Now my old lady has the
gift of maklqg ths abust lighten broad and the sweet
est butter in all the country round--and I consider
that a great gift. We have been maurred. nqw nigh
rtyars,. and by beingr careful. have managred Sn
scrape together some property but we were both
mighty poor when we ware married, though we were
mighty happy too, for my wife had the gift of sing
ing over the wash tub, and I consider that another
great gift. She would dance over the house with her
Jroom and duster and leave every thing behind her
as neat as a pin. To tell you the truth, Mr. Editor,
I consider my old lady a very gifted woman-though
she never did attempt to write poetry to my knowl
edge in her life.
-'here is Miss Liddy Lovepraise a neighbor, of ours,
who writes any quantity of verses about being deser
ted, and deceived, and broken hearted, and craving
to be loved, and all that sort of stuff. Well, would
you believe it, she asked me and my wife Jemimy, to
take tea with her one evening. So we went,' and
such a tea sure enough ! To sum it up in a few words,
I consider that about the worst meal of victuals I
over sat down to; and still Miss Liddy Lovepraise
considered herself a very highly gifted person. But,
as I said to Jemimy after we got home; "Well,
honey, I had rather have your gift than hers; for
you make yourself and every one about you happy,
while she makes herself and every one about her
miserable, with her sighing and dying, and toaning
and groaning, and cannot even cook a decent meal of
But there is still another woman I want to tell you
about before I close. You know little Mrs. Sparkle,
or at least you know what delightful verses she sends
you for your paper, but you would searcely believe
how much she does beelde. Why sl is a littlc piito
of a creature not much larger than a fairy, and-would
you believe it ?-does all the washing, cookiag, and
general housework for her family-has four children,
the oldest three years, the second two, and a pair of
twins not yet a year old-keeps evt-ry thing as neat
as wax, and always has a pleasant word and the
smile of an Angel for her husband whenever he comes
home. And such poetry as she writes! Why it fairly
makes my ears tingle and my mouth water for more
of the saue sort. Now, I casP-ide her a real down
right gifted woman; one of the right sort'1 nop of
your love'lorn damsels, publishing through the pa
pers that no one is fool enough to marry them; and
wishing themselves dead in consequence of it.
Jeminy wants to know if I aint going to send my
letter to some of the Augusta papers-but I tell her
no, not unless you refuse to publish for me, or as you
would very politely say " decline." If such should
be the case, then I should be obliged to send to Au:
gusta to get my letter published. But not without,
I believe in patronising home inttitutions. I be
lieve mighty strong in the Edgeleld tideertiser; and
I believe in the Editors stronger yet, and think they
are capable of working a reformation in their paper
whenever it is needed.

now address you, who, ilthouigh he comes from
a distant part of the country, yet knows no
North, no South, no East, no West--noithing
but his country-and who is a tinrm chamipion

ADDRESS. OF MR. JAMES GARDNER.
Fellow Demeerds: Under the confederated
system of government unider which so many
States and commnunities live ini happiness andl
prosperity, there are a few great principles
recognised wvhich are deer to the hearts of Dem
Cats throughopt the bpod pxtent. # this
Viiii. 'Amo~ng 'those prmnciples are religious
freedom of opinion and wvorship, equality of
ciil rights as Amnerican citizens, the sanctity
of private p,roperty and .the sacred, abnegation
of all interf'erence In the domietic affairs of the
separate States--allowing each State and Terri
tory to make her own lawa, and to gtted to
andl regulate her affirs in her own way. Un-m
dr this system'of' the great liational lDemnocet
tic party there extists through these principkes a
cotmnonom bond of brotherly sympathy and union,
which will cause the citizens of Massachusetts
to find a warmi and hearty welcome in the sun
ny plains of the South, and mak~e thp-ite
of' the 'utlt4 fed at lhone though he stands
qmpting the sun's of a northern climate. (Loud
pheermng. T Jnder these principles the peopile
of New 'ngland and the people of your p.wn
omonwaltll have thriy'pmi in prosper'ity i
their commneroe whitens the ocean; and the pro
ducts of their looms and of the workshops of
their miechanics challenge admiration through
out the civilised world. The people of the
South are glad to see the prosper-ity of your
peolek while you pursue your legitimsate rights
udrthe laws which you create for yourselves.
Uder these circumstances they are happy to
see you prosper. It is only when you trespass
upon them--it 's only when you pegjt&
c roagh gag jglts o& your ofen, th't- we ar-e
Ispospdto feel towards you that jealousy and
hotility, that spirit of conflict which inspired
Iyour fathers and our fathers ini that great con
Itest which resulted in the Declaration of Inde

the magificeit subuirbs 'o your city, that I
passed the Old Elm under which George Wash
ington exhibited bis commission as commander
in-chief of the- American forces. He was a
southern man and a slaveholder, yet he drew
his sword for principles as dear to the S-ruth as
to the North, feeling that they were principles
common to us all while we were struggling for
the rights, not of-free negroes, but of white
-m-n, and to establish a government for the An
glo Saxon race. (Tremendous cheering.)' Par-.
don me, fellow-citizens, for alluding to another
fact-for alluding to the gallant ancestry which
fought those battles. I have no misgiving that
in'recalling the fact 'that slave holders helped
to fight the battle of Bunker Hill the Demo
crate of Boston will have less veneration for
their memory. It was only this afternoon..that.
I visited your Museum, and there I saw framed
upon the wall a bill of sale of a negro, from one
citizen of Massachusetts, to another citizen of
Massachusetts. It was In the year 1771,. and
only four years befo.rq the great battle of Bunk
er Hill. Afterwardi, fellow-citizen,. your an
cestry saw fit to get rid of that' institutionr;
they did so in their own wisdcni, in their'own
good time, and in their own way, without in
iumanity to the slave and *ithentdetiiiiint to
t'eir own pockets; they did so without dicta
tion fron abroad. They did F.o- of their own
free will and accbi-d; -they did so because they
believed it was for their interest to do so. And
now the States which recognise the salle insti
tution claim the privilege of doing -the same
thing, when and how they please; and only jf
it shall please them so to' do. Whatever wed-,
we shall scorn all dictation from any .source or
any auarter uipon that subject. (Cheers.)
Fellow citizens, whe-n that great battle for
constitutional liberty was fought in this country
for the Anglo Saxon race; when the banner
then unfurled was unfurled over thirteen col,
iiies, twelve, if not thirteen, -of thooM colonient
recugniaed the in-titution of lavery. ~ Gradual
ly, however, that institution ieceded to that
portion of the country where it. now lives; but
it did notearry blight and desolation in its train.
On the contrary, oummunities, moral and religi
ois, exist am.1 prosper.whem- that institution
flourishes. .The same gospel, the same Christian
religion, the sae principles of morality, the
same love of the principles tof civil and religious
liberity,' as well as the freedoms ot the ballot
box and the purlty of the judidiae .reniie which
exist among you;now exirt - and ier uherished
there. -- - - -
The objection to Democracy by* the Blae'

chartcr of American liberty and the great char
ter of the constitution, which provides th.t the
rights of .tie seyeral States sball be.strictly. i

(Loud. applause.) I believe that while the
Democratic party holds together in itii integrity

that this Itejublic is safe, and that her'peuple

comes worse than a heap of sand, scattered to

our fathers banded together are fnr.aken. (Tre
mnendons appllause). But, ibllow citizens, I be
1jore the worst of this great seetjional entent -is
piast and gone. The issues which we imet in
1851 have been one -after-another closed and
settled. Even " bleeding Kansas" hias ceased to
bleed. 11er wounds are healed, and it is not
foir a southern hand to tear them open. Fanat
ic- and demagogues at the North may endeav
or to stir up bad blood and again fan the fires
of fanaticism; apd load tho good sense of the
people of Massachusetts and New England fronm
their legitimiate pursuits- fronm their coiimmerce.
their manufactures, and their mchanic arts, to
plunge agii in the strifes of dlemagogues and
rekindle the fires of fraternal'-hate. But they
will find no more material -and 9:el to feed their
unnatural firecs. T1he South remains quiet and
peaceable, and is cayable of takinug care of her
self, yet holing to that muaxim declared biy thme
great Jackson, and w~hichi I find inscribed un
der his portrait in your beautiful City IHall
" The)y will nsk for nothing but what is ight,
and they- will subimit to, nothing that is wrong."
(Great cheering). If. fellow citizens, you will
respect that pirimeiple on their piart, the national
Democratic party is sure to achieve a glorious
triumph in the land consecrated by the blood
of Concord, Lexington and Bunker Wh1 The
national Democratic pa.ty will yevt triumph in
this good gld agse, for tiie people of the South
are unwin~ig to believe that they are severed
forever in'syinpathy from the people of Massa
chusetts. (Cheers ) When I go home I shall
tell themt that I saw to, miuch good Democratie

result, for good 'Democfatic -seed'hs sown upon
