An LINE RAr.oAD.--The South Carolina
Legislature at its late session passed a bill in
corporating a company to build a railroad from
Columbia to Augusta. If such a road were built,
together with one from Danville, Virginin, to
* Greensborougha, North Carolina, a distance of
only thirty-eight miles, it would complete a very
direct, and almost an air line, to New York, and
the Richmond Dispatch justly remarks that it
would make a controlling route to New York.
The present routes North are all too serpentine,
slow and expensive for this fast age, all of which

SOtrTI CAROLINA AND TnE SL.AVE TRADE.-l
is a singular fact, says the Savannah Republican,
and as honorable as it was unexpected, that the
nullifying State of South Carolina has spoken
out against the slave trade with an emphasis
that has marked the expression of opinion in no
other southern State. Her press, so far as we
have seen, without a solitary exception, have
protested with the greatest energy and warmth
against the infringment of the latw, and the in
troduction of Africans into their State.
PRESENT FROMi TnlE PoE To AN AMERICAN

Stockton as his successor. Upon this occasion
the Pope expressed very kind personal feelings
towards Mr. Cass, and as a testimonial of his
regard he sent him the next day a magnificent
marble bust of himself.

A letter from ,Madrid says:-" We have re'

SrArN wIsnEs TO PunenAsE A POnTION Or TILE
UNITED S-rATE.-The proposition to purchase
Cuba has come so often, that Spain seems to
have grown tired of it, and hence is about to
propose to the United States to sell Key West to
Spain. The reasons given for her desire to pos
sess a portion of.the United States' territory are
as plausible as those usually given why the Uni
ted States should have Cuba, and is a fair retort
upon our Government.
g WHEN Machion, the Greek Physician was
- slain, Homer said of him "a good Physician is
worth as much as a whole army." Then a good
medicine like .Ayer's Caturrtic Pills, is worth a
great deal more, because it cures as well, works
wider, and last longer. The circle of the beat
Physician's labor must be narrow, while such a
remedy is available to all-can be had by every
body, and is worth having.

sharp looks, and display of jewelry. The pur
poses of the Convention are Erat to revisethe old

At a meeting held at Big Creek, Edgefield District,
South Carolina, January 6th, the following Preamble
and Resolutions were unanimously adopted:
Wiuaccas, There is much excitetuentin our midst,
created by the report, whether true or false we do
not know, that there are many native Africans in our
District. And, wherens, meetings have been held,
and Resolutions passed in this District, thnt we be
lieve calculated to injure the South, and spread Abo.
litioniam broadcast through our State. Therefore
Itesolred l1t, That we will bhind ourselves to go
with our friends while we can, but to gu for the South
and her cause, in preference to friends and regardless
ltesoleed 2nd, That, in our opinion, the action of
the Itocky Creek Church in relation to the native Af.
ricans, supposed to be in our midst, was premature
and uncalled for.
.e8o1ced 3rd, That while we deprecate the intro
duction of native Africans among us, either as Slaves,
Apprentices, or Freemen, we view with still greater
solicitude, the introduction of Pqlitico-religious sen
timents into a State hitherto distinguished for her
conservatism on all such political machinery.
IReeotred -4th, That we believe it the right of all
personp to egpress their views on subjects of public
iuportanep; bit we protpat against the introduction
into qpr State of the politial faenniticiltm of the cele
brated three thousand Abolition Clergy.
Resolced 5th, That the proccedings of this meeting
be signed by the Chairman and Secretary, and pub

" The wcar munt /or curried inat -frico."
There is a great deficiency of labor at the South,
and this is the reason why we have so little diversity
of economic pursuits. We cannot vpure the labor
from agriculture, and yet - m:vufaetures, transporta
tion and exchange arc quite as indispensable to the
prosperity and independence of a country as agricul
tare is or can be in an economic sense. Where are
our factories? Yet neither cotton nor any other ruCe
material can have any value, for ei theruse or exchange,
until it is first manufactured. Where are our ships ?
Yet neither cotton, nor any other article of commerce,
whethaf fag gr manufactured ean be sold or exchan
ged without trene-po..iap.. 'Who mnanufactures our
cotton? England! Who transports it? The Yan
kees. Still we boast of inadependeace, while England

The consumuption of cotton is steadily incroasing-yut

And if the deficit is so heavy in South Carolina
how much larger must it be in the other slave States
where the whites are vastly in excess of the blacks,
except in the single State of Mississippi, which has
the races in about equal tiumbers. -Even in old Vir

Until she shall Mre labor how can the old lands
of the South be rone ed-her swamps reclaimed, or
her wild lands opened up.
It is idle to opposo re-opening the trade through
any fear of the negroes gaining the aseendency and
giving us another edition of Hayti. We have but
about four million negroes while there are near seven
million whites in the South. Jt would exercise per
haps half the ships of Now 1land twenty years,
constant employment, to import enough Africans to
allow but one to each white person. Assuning the
races to be butequal incourage and other military vir
tues, surely each white inhabitant could find no diffi
culty in controling one Slave. The most approved
writers upon social and governmental philosophy an
nounce that.-6e Conservator of the peace is quite
sufficient to preverve order even among whites. In
a Slave comunity almost every white person is a
pence officer, and as negroes checi fully bow to the
white man's superiority-as the white man is fortified
with the authority of 3aw-with the assistanceo of
cultivated intelligence-with the most improved fire
arms and a practised skill in the use of them, it is
not unreasonable to suppose that the whites of the
South could hold in well regulated subjection, an hun
dred Slaves to one freeman.
In Brazil the two races are about equal and well
nigh every department of human industry thrives
there like a green bay free. In truth the day is not
distant from present indications when that mighty
empire will eclipse every State in Christendom. At
this moment it has more territory than the United
States-a greater river and tributaries than the Mis
sissippi-a finer climate for slave labor at least-a
more fertile soil and choicer products than the South
ern States of thi; Union, as well as a more stable
Government than ours and one-just as free. It also
has more negroes than the United States-raises coffee
for the world as we do cotton, and is the State of
South America as ours. is of North Ameriet. Here
then we have a shining example of the immense good
accruing to a supiety which has an erm number of
black slaves and white freemen.
But in the palmiest days of Athccs th7 proportion
of slaves to freemen was over forty to one, still no
danger resulted to the State, although the slaves and
masters were of the same race. Athens of course fell
as every State must fall, but It was by foreign inva
sion, not by servile Insurrection. Cases analagous to
this might be cited in the histery of Roman and Jew
As to Ilayti there were about twenty blacks to one
white, when that favored island was conquered by
the negroes. Yet every thing glided on smoothly
until the French Revolution broke out, notwithstand
ing the Haytian masters, long previous to that eyent,
had rather invited their negroes to rebellion by lea
ing them upon distant plantations, often In charge of
only negro drivers, while they themselves following
the characteristic instincts of a Celt, settled in cities
and villages-thus leaving their negroes free to plot

GENERAL McGOWAN 1EFOUR THE PAIMETTO
Mr. EVron:-I am very glad to see that Mr. RAi
sAy, at the Post Office, has for sale yet, a few copies
oif the admirable speech of on. McGowAx before
the Palmetto Association.
This production of Mr. McGowan's, does as much
credit to'his genius and taste, as any thing which has
proceeded from him. It is exceedingly difficult, on
such a theme, to meet the demands of vulgar expec
tation, and still conform to the rules of taste and ele
gant composition. So much blood is required to flow,
so much noise of drum, trumpet and culverin is ox
fected to roar, and so many appalling pictures of
limbless human bodies, of mangled charges trampling
over the wounded and dying men, and of cities duo
lated by fire and sword, with their women violated,
their husbands weltering in gore, and their children
consumed in the smouldering dwellings that sheltered
their helpless Infancy, are supposed to move in the
grand panorama of every speech that is made on tie
Mexican war, that almost every orator who has grati
fled the public demand, on that subject, has most sig
nally offended the judgment, and wounded the nicer
susceptibilities of the few temperate and wise, who
listen to such things.
The address is very unpretending-designed only
to give a slight sketch of what was suffered and done
by the Palmetto Regiment, and to claim for that gal
lant corps a reasonable share of credit and a proper
place in history. The style is easy, perspicuous,
graceful, and rather classic.' The reader will readily
conepive, whilst perusing its pages, that the writer
pould accomplish even greater things-because there
spews to 4e 1snifpst in it so great a lack of effort.
That is one of its chief beauties, and a complete his
tory of the regiment, after the same manner, and
finish, would, indeed, be incomparable.
But I own, that the General has been a little too
unambitious. His effort would have had a longer
life, if he had made two or three strong points, and
to their elucidation, development, or establishment,
directed the whole artillery of his thought, the ima
ges and drapery of his delightful fancy, and the force
and eloquence of his convincing logic.
The right government of volunteers, theIr aptitude
for foreign service, and theIr sufferings in Mexico,
would ouch have presented a field for remark and dis
cussion, wide enough to have filled the hour. The
causes of the peculiar bearing, prowess and heroism
of the South Carolina volunteers, would alone, have
furnished argumeont for the longest oration. And
the comnparative merit. of the Northern and South
ern volunteers, though rather an invidious, would yet
have afforded a most 'highly interesting topic, the dis
cussion of which, would have bee'n justified by the
cireurpitances surrounding us, and by the difileulties,
harrasszpenteand anersthat besetl.aLdjger the.
These remarks I amt sure, are not made by way of
objection. The speaker touched on nearly all the
matters mentioned. The human mind is hard to sat
isfy ; and upon tasting so much that is good, it longs
to eat and drink, until the appetite, so provoked,
shall be appeased by a complete surfeit.
The history afforded us of the career of the regi
ment, and all the reflections thereon, appear to be
truthful and just, and conveyed in language of great
simplicity and appropriateness. Only, I think there
is a little inaccuracy in the account of Santa Anna's
apttemupt upon Quitman's Brigade between El Pinal
and Amazoque. I huau the pleasure of reading the
Negicag pyals pwn despatch to his Govern
ment, rpgjfp [s thec pecurrence; and I have con
versed frrely on tb sphjeel, iyig thle p~ieer who com
mandedl tho adropeod guard of the paluetto Regi.
ment on the ay of the meditated attack. It was
perhaps no accident, that Glen. Worth awaIted the ar
rival of Gen. Quitman, and that the latter hastened
his march on the thirteenth of May, 1847. General
McGowatn, on reflection, will recollect, that during
the 'gigig of the 12th May, whilst the New Yorkers
and Sunuth tjarulinianus lay nepr the pass of El Pinal,
after Tattoo had long been b'at, after the excitement
consequent upon the accident in the quarters of the
New York Regiment, by which one member of that
comnmand shut another, had entirely subsided, and
after sleep had enveloped the whole camp in pro
found repose, that the Sentinel at poit, No. 7, near
the tent of Capt. Quartermaster McGowan, hailed
three times, some unknown intruder, wh~o had gal
loped up to the lines at full speed, and was only ar
rested by the faithful soldier of the guard awake to
his duty. He will also remuember, that just at the
instant when the sentry had accosted the horseman,
the third and last time, and the ominous clang of the
muusjtet lock gave wvarning of death, the voice of the
Liout. commwanding the ganrd resitrained the soldier's
tire by this eo'neise' un'dotinent order,-" Sentinel
No. 7, ilil let the express pass." The mystery there
is solved. On thmat night an exp~ress fruom Gen. Worth
reached Quitmnun informuing him of Santa Anna's de
signs, and warning him to use all desputeh in thme
mnoring, I" (fs,ming a junction with his Divicion at
the village of Amuazoque. Tihe tents were struck ear
ly and before clear light, and LieLt Albuey who com
manded the adv..nee guard of thme S.outh Carolinn
regiment, and Lieut. Mayne Reid, who conmanded <
tihe advanuce of the New York regiment, received or
ders . to ep4 rnpidly ahead of the Brigade, no
doulit, tq giyo yarpjpg of thy aipypaph of the enenmy,c

of May was trying t~o thp hparts of pt least a p'urtion
of the Pal ottfrogiment, The guard colpmanded bya
the Lieutenants named, continued at leaan one-half or
three-quarters of a mile in advatnce of the Brigade,
and the looks of the Mexicans on the road side and
in the little villages, and every thing around, gave I
such positive Indications of a ight, that one or two
non-gommnisuioned officers and privates of the "for-.
fora hope," snuffed battle so strongly "in the tainted I
gale," that their courage instantaneously evaporated
into the thin air, their strength failed themt, their
do: faltrd, and they fainted by the way-aide
ifrirbdemig's. caa~ a:d the hissing of shdt and
,ioll,p jaW~izj~'ng ,M tbj ijop zcnsi. 1
Still the little van guard pushed foraird, even ~i'I
sght of the enemy, and the two officers in command,
like true soldiers and comrades in a common glorious
ause, made no dispcsitions for falling back upon their
regiments, but formed their heroic bands in good or
er, pledged themselves to each other, to fight togeth
fr of'[al~og~Jer y~d to ghare aljio theoor and
th ls ap4s of the t4fiy.
At this juneture, an aid or oiher :bessnger of stuit:
an's galloped forward, and ordered th-e guard to joIn
heir respective regiments and prepare for battle.
he line of battle was formed, with the greatest promt
ess and rapidity, the sick wagons were literally
mptied of their burthens, and the see )nd plattoons
f some companies, were composed of men, as enma- e

But I am transcending -the bounds of thisC.onnmu

THE BLUE RIDGE RaILROAD. h
We copy the following from the Qazden 0
Journal of the 21ht ult: - - d
The reconsideration of this subjecthas caused 2
no little anxiety among the friends of this great S
enterprise, in and out of the Legislature. - Can
it be possible that our State, through itsilegis- f
lative assembly, is going to let this great work
stop, for the want of means, and thus sarifice
all the labor and treasure thus far expended
upon it? We hope not.
The Independent Press, (Abbeville, S. C.,) in
giving an abstract. of Mr. Trenholm's nmiterly i
appeal for the Blue Ridge enterprise, remarks:
"It is the policy to keep clear of debt, yet d
South Carolina, with a noble inheritance,valued f
at 0360,000,000, and yielding an annual income
of $20,000,000, may well impose a small debt
upon posterity for the sake of enhancing the
value of the State.
" The road is not designed to benefit a sec
tion, but will inure to% the general good; and
the history of these enterprises show their
stimulating effect in enhancing the value of
property, and promoting the general welfare.
" Better, we think, would it be to suspend
the work upon the State Capitol, than to suffer
this great work to fail for want of Legislative
We quite agree with our respected cothmpo
rary, that it would be better far to let our
State Capitol stop where it is, and cease the ex
travagant expenditures of money so lavishly
bestowed for the purpose of making a grat
show, and let aid go to a great and magnificent I
enterprise, which proniises so much for the ma- 1
terial wealth and prosperity of the State.

been on trial in the Superiar Court at Cineianati
for two or three days, which possess considerable
interest. The Gazelle says: p
It was brought by Rev. George W. Quinby
against Frederick. Eckstein, Jr., the pliintiff I,
claiming damages to the amount of ten thousand r
d.llars, alleging that by the negligence of the e
defendant, or his agent, belladona was put !in a
-prescription instead of dandelion, by which the
health of the plaintiff was materially injured and
his life put in jeopardy.. Judge Spencer charged
the jury, instructing them that if the articlo. put
up was belladonsa and not dandelion, and that it
produced the effects which the plaintiff claiimed
were the direct results, he would be entitled to
recover such damages as lhe had sustained in- a
pecuniary way, unless the plaintiff himself was
guilty ofneghigenee. After an hour's deliberation(
the jury returned a verdict for the plainfiff -of
twenty-flve hundred dollars.
