On Friday afternoon last, we bad the satisfac
tion of hearing the young men'and boys of MR.
FEnnest.'s Academy, in publie declamation. Many
of them acquitted themselves handsomely. In
spired by the presence of Mr. U WAtiEYs's beauti
ful flock of girls, some o the speakers rose to a
degree of merit highly creditable, conitlering that
this exorcise has been omitted in our Academy for
several years. The dehntere rendered their parts
very well in manay re.pects. Other youths too
deserve mention on account of their evident ambi
tion to succeed ; but we can,not discriminate here.
After hearing them all several times, we will le
better able to form a correct opinion of their rela
tive merits. We hope the school will attend to
this duty it. carefully as they can witfiout inter
fering with other studies. It is a great mistake
to speak of it as an unimportant exercise. Those
who go to college will have reason to be gid that
they had this practise imposed upon them at
school. It will give them an ease of manner in
mounlting the College rostrum which they would
not otherwise posse.,. Those also who may go to
the profession of law will find their school experi
enee in declamation, if rightly cultivated, of great
assistance. Indeed for every youth there is bene
tit in this exercise. It storcs the mind with rich
gems of composition, with noble thoughts nobly
expressed, with specimens of humor, wit and
eloquence, in prose and in verse, upon which the
future man will draw largely and to good purpose.
Remember that ideas, and words, and phrases,
mastered at this early period of life are ten times
as indelible as when acquired in manhood.

Our people of Edgefield always took pride in
keerping fine horses, and were always remarkable
for aiding them well. But nevur did this upirit
rise so high or extend so widely as at present.
There are said to be some sixty stallions at this
time in the district, all of them profitable to their
owners. Many of these are horses of good blood,
-soie of them particularly well bred. Among
these list we notice two with especial pleasure.
1. Dark ./acutheae, belonging to Major T. G.
Bacos, is one of the must beautiful animals we
hav~e ever seen. Ile conies up to the true ideal of
a perfect horse. Of the most approved pedigree,
he is the worthy sun of noble sires. The district
is fortunate in possessing him.
2. Chollenjge, belonging to Messre. GOODB &
BLAND, is a new-comer from the far-off State of
Vermont. lie is one of the finest living scions of
the celebrated Morgan stock. lie will indeed chal
lenge comparison with the horso-flesh of the Union.
His qualities are every way superior. le is gen
tle, yet full of rpirit, fleet but as manageable in
harness as the besit-broke family drudge. le has
made the time of 2,40 with ease. lie it now near
the full perfection of his powers, being about five
years old. It requires no prophet to predict that
this elegant horse will vastly improve our stock
in Edgefiold. See what they say of him where be
came from. We quote from the Vermont Patriot.

Goode, of Edgefield, South Carolina, has purchased

The author has uthorded us the pileasuro of read
ing his volume of Poems lately pubflshed. We re
gard the book a valuable addition to the poetry of
the South. The tribute to Joux' C. Cas.worx' is a
nohle ode. " The Pleasures of Piety," which is
the main poecm of the collection, will command
the admiration of the most fastidious, and cannot
fail to be a source of true enjoyment to every
Christianmind. In another number, we hope to
review this wiirk briefly and to piresenit our readers
with anyn beaiutiful extracts.

Fine Times at Chester.
From a late niumber of the Chester St'adatrd,
we clip an item. It chirps of prospierity after a
fashion that excites our envy:
"Within the last few dhay., lands (old JcIlds) in
ruinwidertible quantities. situated in the subuirbis of
Chester, have becen sold at pirivate sale, at from
forty to sixty dlollars per aere. iteal estate about

is gettinig to lie regarded as the veriest " trash "
cheaper than dirt."

The Boundary Line.
To the inquiry of " A Rxtnca" about the boun
dary line between Georgia and South Carolina,
we reply :
That it is now conceded by all reastonable men,
in both States, to consist in a line running up
the middle of the stream of the Savannah river,
or, in legal parlance, pursuing the flante aquap,
leaving the islands on the Georgia side; and
wherevor theso islands occur, the line follows the
thread of the stream between the island and the
South Carolina bank. This is without doubt the
proper construction of the Treaty of Beaufort.

to,c~ard.e other denominaaationas, as is found in thes

this much, Ihlave his sermons anal Isnam pleased to
find every potsition of "aCRAHITY" sustained by

t' the Senator from New York is ex
tre valorous. I tell him that he has one
valor that I never want to have. I never cx
pect to stand in this body and say the gentle
mia ceupying the Chief Magistracy of this
con] has uttered sentiments false, fabulous,
and retended. This charge is brought
agast the President of the United States.
For orty years he has served his country.
For forty years he has had the confidence of
one of the largest States in this Commonwealth.
For forty years he has held the rela-ions of a
gentleunan here. For forty years he has been
ready to defend his personal honor as a gen
tle , wherever it was assailed. le has
hel imself responsible everywhere, in thii
bod nd elsewhere, to maintain his personal
honor wherever it was assailed ; and is it
courageous in a gentleman who is not ready
to defend his honor anywhere," to assail the
Chief Afagistrate of the country with language
that he dare not apply to a gentleman in u
position to make him responsible; that le i
dare not apply to me. That is the point. t
Sir,'I call the attention of the country to it. t
I say his position forbids the Presilfeiit from
repl'-ing to it. His position as President and
Chid1Magistrate of this country throws him
out of the way of that defence of his personal
honor which becomes every gentleman here.
Even if I believed it, as a ian of honor, with
reference to his position as Chief Magistrate
of m ountry, I think no Senator should use
suchl iguage. It is unbee.ming the Senate.
I sa' it is ths language which no Senator res
ponble for what he says, would utter.
WVh'st but few men, connected as I am, even
no ally if you please, with the Democrutic
party,'find fewer causes-of agreement than 1
do with the Chief Magistrate; yet I feel it my
duty to repel this charge. Sir, I repel it as
an American Senator. I say it is a slander;
and that he has uttered in the Senate what he
cannot maintain as a gentleman.
