CosbuxA., Thursday De. 2.
DXAn EarroR :-I cheerfully drop you a line or two a
as requested in your favor of yesterday.
No news of particular interest to-day. All the
speculation aoat is In regard to the forthcoming U.
S. Senator. It will probably be decided to-day.
Ao.rus stands no earthly chance.
I was in the Senate during most of the sitting this
morning. Nothing of importance transpired. At
least nothing of importance was ejected. This is
not the week for ending causes. That species of
work, and of wholesalo decapitation of bills, will be
entered upon next week.

The agony is over, and Col. CnassUT is U. . Suna'i
tr after all said and done. I think the office is as
well filled as could be expected under the circum
stances. CoL. C. is a most courteous man, and a wor
thy and true Coroliulan. He received 92 votes, beat
Ing Gov. ADAM$ 38 votes. I suppose the Governor
takes his defeat well; his temperament Is bouyant
and sueb things dout hurt him much. His friends,
I think, made quite afsax pas In bringing out a cer
tain publication entitled " An Appeal to State Rights
snon." It contained invidious comparisons and or
bitrary discriminations which were far from being
palateablo to this sensible Legislature of o-.rs.
FawAy, Dec. 3.
To-day, in the Senate, the usual order of business
(nothing concluded) went on, until after the election
of a Senator to fil the unexpired term of the late
Judge EvA.Ks. Col. CRUM UT having been elected to
this vacancy also by an overwholming majority, re
signed his chair in the Senate and delivered a brief
but feeling valedictory.
An election was immediately held for President of
the Senate, in lieu of Col. CnUEsNUT resigned. It
resulted in the choice of Mr. PoaTER from Charles
ton. He was conducted to the chair by Colonels CAn
noL, and HAUrvOx, addressed the Sonate In terms of
gratitude, and the body fearthwith went on with busi.
sesa. a very slight amount of whiol, was transacted
efore that dignified assemblage of pnoaumnen ad
journed for dinner. It was, altogether, a pleaant
day in the SCnat, especially to CuS.NUT and his
friends. Some wag said, that " pindars used to be
the rage in the Legislaturo, but CAesnuts carried the
In the House, to-day, one or two matters worth
1. The Blue Ridge business was made the special
order for next Tuesday.
L The Jadiciary Committee reported unfavorably
onapetitionof sundry citizens of Edgheld, Lexington,
lVaruwell & Orangeburg, praying for a new Judicial
,district to be called Calhoun. The petition was said
to have a thousand signatures.
3. Mr. SPaATT, of Charleston, introduced resolu
tions about the Slave Trade, looking to the repeal of
*l1 Federal enactments restrictivo of the Trade, in
streting our Senators In Congress on the subject &c.
It was attempted to fix their eonsideration for Thurs
day next. But there was objaetion made. One
nember remirked that " the House bad many sub
joet, before it of much more pressing importance."
Still the vote on fixing a day was a tie. The matter
will yet ho discussed, hut it occurs to your corres
pondent that the tide is at present adverse to any
action on the subjoet.
4. The last item I have to mention for to-day is
the re-election of General JAuxa Joxzs as Commis
sioner of the NewState House. Thaulove hasbeen made
(which I remember the A.derliser warmly advocated
last summer) to increase the Commissioner's salary.
Very many here think it ought to he done, but whether
they will be withheld from voting for it by a false
apprahension of disfavor at home, has yet to be 'tes

Neat week will be a gay week here, and many
visitors are espected. The graduating class at the
College is spoken of as eaove the average ; and Com
suenoement day -is locked for with interest. The in
stitution Is flourishing. 4iur old friend, Dr. Ltsoans,
holds his own and is still a great favorite in the Col.
lege. He is in fine humor this session, and, I am
glad to say, in capital health. The Doctor has much
to do with giving lone to the College. Ho has also
not a little to do with making strangers like Colum
bia. Hie Is hospitable and kind after the Edgefield
style of years gone by. Bless the old doctor!

.Allarge -meeting of the Israelites of the City was
held on Tuesday evening to give expression to their

The Senatorial Election has been a prolific topic of
speculation during the week. The final result came
to us thismnig byTelegraph. The choice of Hon.

HKE NEMXT DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION.
A point is sought to be raised in South Carolina In
;ard to the State's being represented in the next
mocratie Convention. Some would do no more J
an throw cold water upon the suggested propriety
our taking that step, while others are making their
position to it a plea for the advancement of their
tims to office, State and Federal. Let us for a single
Dment try the wisdom of this opposition by the
uch-stone of common sense.
What will the State forfeit by going into that conven
on? Not an iota of her cherished principles; for
r delegates would go with all these emblazoned up.
i their credentials and charged to defend them
,inst attack or modification. Neither will she sac
Ue a particle of her independence; for she will not
D bound by the Convention's action if it does not'
cet her approbation. Nor would she suffer the least
iminution of her dignity or honor; for there will be
irginia, and Georgia, and Texas, and Alabama, and
11 the rest of the slave States, to warrant by their
reence the worthiness of her course. And as to any
isk of her influence as a State, it would surely bo in
reased at the South by this more close aliliatiun with
be representatives of Southern sentiment; and it is
nly at the South and for the South that she seeks to
uard that influence from decay.
But would she lose nothing by refusing to enter in
o that Convention? She would at least lose the pres
at privilege of assisting, by her advice, in giving di
ection to the great current of opinion upon which her
lostinies are floating, and must continue to float, one
Lnd inseparable, with the woal or woe of the slave
olding South. But there is danger that she would
ose yet more than this. Look at the peculiar rola.
ive positions of the Democracy and of the South.
[o'uk ijseed at the truth, that now the Democracy a

We entreat gentlemen then to beware how they
press their opposition to this matter of the Charleston
Convention. And we especially warn the people of
the State to guard against the approaches of such
politicians. They are unwise counsellors, and, if suf
fered to do so, will place the State in a falso attitude
before the South. Let us heed thaem not, but watch
the developments of the day for ourselves; and whun
called for by the South in the Chsar~eston Convention,
we will be there in obedience to the dictates of duty,
sgn gelnuson sense, ands self-praservation.
THE esJg gggg RAILROAD.
The report of the Presidssjm Rf ?h ikf) to the
Legislature is a very able document, and wn Will en
deavor to lay a portion of it before our readers at an
early day. It strongly urges the Legislature to make
t1VBhUL JtJII ' ta.te enterprise; and
Thle quesap p ps ihleut, as i~t is momentous.
The figures of its eost is ar tling; and yet they
seem small, when all its future l.Ienosfts to jp State
at large are fully estimated. The conclusion, drawn
from the history of railroad advantages, would seem
to warrant a present venture for a great future good.
There is another' gagsideraticn that should be kept in
view. If the State is to sIng) her assistane at the
present progress of the work, the Idea seems .to ob
lain, that her subscription up to this date is to be an
entire loss. That being admitted, the practical (lees.
tion comas to this: Is there any prospect of building
the balance of the road, and of equipping it, at a
cost which would warrant thae bplief that the road
would hereafter pay back to the State a responable
annual dividend upones her fat ure subscriptions. If so,
then the argument on the one side, is for throwcing
array more than a mnillion of dollars, doing no good
to the vital interests of the people of the State; and
on the other side, for continuing the work to comple
tin, losing no more to the State than the opponents
of the road would lose to her, while at no further risk
of loss a judicious investment would be masde result
ing in incalculable advantages to the whole State.
Some of the prettiest shawls of the season are to
be found at GRAYt & Tuntear's, in Augusta. In win.
ter, the shawl is certainly one of the inost important
articles of a lady's dress. There is so much of inde
scribable effect about the comfortable thing, ,cehen
tutfefully aeIrrtedl. But iute will do no good without
a proper assortment for its ;ppplo exarcise. This as
sortmnent ought to be full and varied, or tasta is neces
erily cripipledi in its action. Just such an assortment,
we beg leave to say, may be found at GnAS' k Tint
fEY's. What a nice christmnas gift one of those beau
tiful shawls would be, from husband to wife, or from
Irother to sister, or from son to mother, or from uncle
o niece. Yes, they are lovely things,--those varied
rd brilliant shawls at Gnavm & Tunr~sr's; and we
dvise every cue who finds it convenient to take a
peep at them in paseipg..
The Edlglefild members of the legislature went to
ork at the outset of the session like men in earnest,
is they asould be. We were down there for a few
iys, and could but observe how much like old stagers
hy wont at it,-steady, quiet, observant and intelli
;ent. Msjor J)Ous's eyperiencc, of three terms, ena
>les him to act as a sort of guide to lhpo rest. But
ey are all doing their parts handsomely, in apd .of
Iemselves; and we think the District has reason to
io more than satisfied with her representation.
In the Senate Col. CARnorLL Is winning the admira

W blieve our delegation were somewhat divided
:the election of Senator, every man voting indepen
antly for the candidate of his preferene; and this
the best rule of voting yet discovered. -Doubtless,
oy are all contented with the result. The bulk of
se people certainly will be.
Our members are non-committal men in matters of
action. We hope they will stick to this. Every leg
lator should reserve his decision in these things, at
ut until the whole issue in question is fully made.
Is only thus, that he can do full justice to himself
ud to hisconstituents.

The choice of Col. Cucasui,-as the colleaguo of
lenator HAaOND, is creditable to the discretion and
udgment of our Legislature. Without any such
bility as usually pertains to leading statesmen, the
iew senator is yet a man of clever parts in an intel
octual point of view. In character, he is admirable.
[n his political inclinations, he is sound and conserva
ive. In Inanners, he is bland and affable without a
ouch of sycophancy. In sentiment, he Is liberal and
dlevated. Such being. the complexion of the man, he
>ught to be a great favorite. And indeed ha is so.
Every one who becomes acquainted with Col. Cuss
N oT, is apt to like him. - His prepossessing address
and fine tone of feeling will 'tell' any where. They
will Loll in Washington City, and in the Senate of the
Union. They will reflect honor, too, upoun the State
of South Carolina.
In speaking thus of the-new Senator, there is no de
sign of throwing his mental ability Into the shadow
of his other qualifications. It Is at least equal to that
of his more active competitors for the Senatorship.
Col. CHESNVT makes up, in cautious circumspection,
wha, he lacks in brilliancy- of genius. His inental
powers are such as will give to his political acts the
iapress of wisdom, if not of originality. Perhaps
this is the very order of intellectual endowment best
suited to the duties of a United States Senator. Just
at this time, there Is especial need for the exercise of
this inmportant faculty of caution In tho deliberations
of the Federal Legislature.
We therefore join with others In congratulating the
Stato upon the election of Col. JASS.a CusNUT. It Is
nuspicious of good. Side by side with the powerful
strength of his wore matured colleague, the people
m'y con1fidently expect that South Carolina, on the
lour of the Senate of the Union, will contribute her
full proportion of services in the, perilous contest of
sections that now threatens so much of danger to free

Here, they have jna~s two very great mistakes: One
is, the attempt to draw a party isnd in outh Carolina
when no real differences exist. The other Is thie pun
lication of this pamplhlet, however laudable and hon
est the purpose. ~It Is a causeless attack upon our
Senator, and i only tendency is to beget heart-burn
inga for future distraction.
This sesquipedal adjective is much bigger than the
office in South Carolina to which it applies, at this
time. Gubernatoried aurhority has almost as much
sound as polinphloiuboioltulusa; but it does not re
alize to the mind any such sense of miijesty and re
sistless power. The fact is, we are coming to think
too little of this office. Our first men are not placed
in it often enough. The consequence is, very few of
them now are disposed to seek it. This does not look
exactly well in State Rights mien. We ought to think
mare than we do of the position of Governor and
.We ought to increase the salary and (if practicable)
the power of the position. And especially ought we
to compel our men of first rate ability to tako it and
elevate it by their genius.
The probability is, that Col. J.rEs mr, of Lau
rens, will be elected Governor this session. His oppo
nents are Mr. Gist of Union and Mr. I. D. WILsoY of

IG9 PRICES OP NEGROES.

irrived in the last issue. A considerate correspon- CO

tienco and he shall certainly be supplied with all the
begislative Information worth knowing, and a good
Jual not worth knowing. It has come to be about as
necessary to tell the people what the Legislature did
,ot do, as what it did do. Otherwise, they would not
obtain a suC.rient account of the wisdom and lack-of- BI
wisdom displayed by their Legislative servants. Of tw
the present Legislature we must however remark, in to
the general, that they are a capital body of fine- tit
looking and efficient men; and we know, almost as fe
well as we know anything, that the Commonwealth
is safe in their keeping. The talent of the House is nu
to be fouund among the men who have just reached
the full maturity of life; Yet there are some old
members, without whom the wheels of Legislation
would drag for a while,-tho invaluable chairman of
of the Committee of Wlaorys and Means, for instance.
But the present generation of Carolinians,-men from ai
35 to 45 years of ago,-occupy the seats of power th

'The deceased was ap appiripg man with a well or

e ,was a ponistant member of the Baptist Church
if Chrlst at Callaham's, for the last 12 or 15 years.
To ilso belonged to that humano and well-designed
irder, Odd-Fellows, who acknowledge the hand of God
n appropriate ceremonies in the funeral procession,
nd at his grave. He has left us no more to be seen
n the flesh on earth. But doubtless as we "believe
hat Jesus died and arose again, even so them that
leep in Jesus will God bring with him." May this,
p Word of nod, bp the consolation of his hereaved

The deceased had been to Richmond, Va., on busi.
ess, and had the premonitory symptoms of his dis
iase when lip pfit Ilis home at his brother Srx.oN
~nglre, npar W. Wililig. Iis symytoms showing

esire was thtn to get hopne among relations and
riends, for which lie stnrted immediately, but was on.

us arrival thers,
Mr. C. was a member of Concordia Lodge of Free
basons at Edgefield, and was buried with " Masonic
honors " by the fraternity, on Sunday the 21st uit.
That the deceased had failings, his friends will ad.
it, as absoluto moral perfeetion can only be approx
imated, but nerer attained in this world, lie was
aphatleally an honest man, with a heart brim full
if charity, as many acts of eubstantial aid to the poor
if his neighborhood might be here set forth to prove.
Two other qualities Mr. CnoUcH possessed, which all
men admire. You might implicitly rely upon the
truth of what he told you. So, also, you might rely
sbsolutely upon his friendship, when at all a friend
four friend as a christian, we can say but little,
and for aught we know, didl pardon his slus In his last
hour. A FRIEND AND DaoTnait.
