We are authorized to announce, that Mr. Lzwis

for Clerk of Edlgefeld District.
The roof of 314j. S. S. Tox'Kvis's house (late
the Carolina 1otl) in this village, was ignited by
a spark frou the chimney on Monday morning
last; and for a short time there was consideralble
alarmn. But the active assistance of muany citizeus
was itumediately at hand, and the flname was
speedily extinguished. The quick observation
and ready hand of Mr. TIL.AN WATSON (the en
ergetic young architect engaged in remodelling
the building) wore principally instrumental in
stopping the fire.
MAuon TomPKnis requests us to return his
heartfelt thanks to those who were kindenough to
volunteer their aid so promptly, not only in ex
tinguishing the tire but in preserving the house
and furniture from detriment.

"Prof. LaBorde'se history of the South Carolina
College is now in press and will soon be issued.
It is expected eagerly by many graduates and
friends of the College, and by the many friends of
the esteumed author."

We ask attention to the splendid advertisement
*of Mr. J. Kat-rrs~t, of Augusta. It is in keeping
with the dimensions of his magnificent store and
the, enlarged principles upon which he trades.
KAUFFER's is now ranked as one of the very best
dry-goods houses of the South. It is a peculiar
facility to the people of Edlgefield District, to have
so complete an establishment within their reach.

Some time since, having had occasion to allude
to our present naval force, we put down the whole
number of ships in the service at about jffy.. This
was an error. An authentic paper from the De
partmient shows that we have 10 Ships of the Line,
10 Frigates, 21 Sleeps of War, 3 Brigs of War, 1
Schooner, 25 Steamers, 3 Store vessels, and 5 Domb
vessels, making an aggregate of 78. Since 1845,
the number of seamen has been limited by jaw to

A farmer gives us the information that the Rust
has attacked wheat in several parts of oar district.
As. yet ii.is confined to the blade; and there is
hope tha~t the beads may be formed before it spreads
l:ut generally with us, the news of the wheat
crop is highly cheering. From the rich Cambridge
l.indls, we receive accounts of almost unptreceden
ted erops. GEs.RALr Dt;xovascr, of that vicinity,
can show a field which some think has never been
surpassed in that fertile neighborhood. Even
our pieywos wheat is not bad; and this grsin
is known to be least of all adapted to our loose and
silcious soiL. Upon the whole, in spite of the
Rust, we have good reason to calculate upon a
very full crop for this District,

Fish No. 1.-Col. Mims's Mills.
Our introductory fish, for the present season,
came off on Thursday last at the mill Pond of
Col. G. D. Mts. It was a delightful day, and
we (that is, ourself and a few others, assisted by
the hospitable CorONx. himself) succeeded in
pulling out of that limpid water forty-setne Noble
fellows, in a comparatively brief space of time.
Oh! it was royal, to feel one of those plump Red
Breuaters hanging heavy on the hook, and then
to see him Butter and flap his sides, as he
caine up into the sunlight, in all the rich radiancy
of his native coloring! No one, who has not t
caught one of these fish, can at all realize the ex
ceeding beauty of the operation, or the intense 1
satisfaction its successful execution spreads over
the mii of the angler. One after another dida
we draw them from their aqueous receptieles, un
til. as we have said, forty-seren lay floundering in
magniticent confusion, in our fish buckets and
sundry little pools of water upon the bank. Then
to dinner at the Saw mill Shelter ;-cold ham and
biscuit, pickles and ginger-nuts, and (by the kind
ness of the COLONEL) hot fish, hot corn-bread, hot
potatoes, and a great old jug of the coolest kind
of buttermilk. Soon afterwards, we were again
in quest of fish ; and this time, a trout and a sucker
were added to our pile, with several more Red- i
bellies. And so we bade the COLOtZL good even- 1
ing, and, with the comfortable feelings of fisher- -
men who had caught a suf(fdah)ency and had eat
a good dinner. we wore off for home. That night,
what a supper!

or later. The present proprietor, we regret to

Traffic with Russia.
The following piece of iutelligence encourages
hope of a rapidly increasing trade with tus.,ia.
We are bure that our Miinister at ST. PitERSItSnG
will omit no opportunity to advanceo, in this and
every other possible way, the intercourso and
traffic between Americans and Russians..
Mr. Miller, American Consul at Hamburg, re
ports to the Dlepartmont that the propri-Aurs of
the steamers between Lubeck and St. Petersburgh
have made arrangements with those running be
tween Hamburgh and New York by which they
propose to establish, at very low rates of freight, a
direct system of transportation from New York to
St. Petersburgh, via Hamburg and Lubeck. It is
stated that hitherto the business between the
United States and Ruspia has been transacted at
only two seasons-one fleet of vessels leaving the
United States in the spring in time to arrive in
the Baltic by the opening of. navigation, and
another fleet going to the Baltic late in the autumn,
to leave again before the navigation elose.. The
merchant. have, therefore, but two regular com
munications per annum, and their capital is in
vested about six months in the purchase and
shipment of their goods.
The facilities now cormbined would enable them
to forward goods from New York to St. Peters
burgh every fortnight during the season that
alavigatio~n is open, by7 a transit which would con
me but three weeks of time,
We could wasb that the Jlerestry had p'eked out
some other words than these to charact*rise our
report of General 1BoxnA)'s late spa ech at this
place. If he had said "incomplete." or " brief"' or
" partial," we should not have mindetd the eireum
stance. But the term " eeidentaly impe'rfect"' goes
too far. To the extent that we did report our Mtem
her's address, It was suleuntly perfect,-at least
as much so as such reports usually are,-as much
so, we may add, as was the .lercury's report of
General HIAxxoiD's speech at Beech Island. On
the important point of DoruiAs and his doctrine,
the report (though condensed) wee accurate. So
it was in moat other respects, except that it merely
indicated one or two heads without attempting to
follow the speaker over ground familiar to intelli
gent readers. One mistake we did makte, in saying
that Mr. BUCELaxax vetoed the Hoeetead Biill;
but General B3. inadvertently made the same mis
take in his speech, and, not receiving his correc
tion until upon the eve of going to press, we could
only allude to the error in a note which perhaps
the Xercury overlooked.
This is a small matter, we know, to carp at; hut
our city cotemporatries should remember that we
have not in the country the experience, or facili
ties for making such reports, which they have.
And we respectfully stuggest that they should avoid
a supereillions tone towards us. " Evidently im
perfect" as was our report, we have the pleasure
of saying that General BosnArx bad the kindness
to commend it as being all that was necessary.
" Publication of Crime."
Under this head, the Newberry C'onaserntiat has
a paragraph approving the course of the Dus Wlest
Telescnpe in excluding from its columns the de
tailed record of crimes. We join with those ex
cellent journals in doubting the righteousness of
such publications, and commend to the profession.
the sentiments thus expressed by the Conseratit :
" We entirely agree with the Due West Telrecope,
as to the propriety oaf carefully exelumling detailed:
accounts of every kind of crime from the coihamns
of or papecra. We have- lonag thaou;lht that thu
publicationm of crime tendel to thle increase of it,
andl foar that retasona would Ibe much rejaiced to se
a roform ihy thu pubalie press~ ina thmia resape.ct. Thelae
fact is the press' has tbecomne a compl'ete rectord of
crime ; and if the effects of the record continue to
inctreasae, there is danger that immre expeunsive tic-t
conamodationsi will ho necesary to the faithful dlii
ebuargo of its oflico. No. barethren of the press let
it not be ina any maunse otur oAlice to record crimne;
leava it tao he recoraded elsewhere. Antd then we
will beo further from pandering to a vitiated paublic
taste, and more emp~loyed in cultivating a botter
state of miorals throu.ghout the country. Thec
Tet/rMacope, we are glad toa set', has paropoised the I
proper course to itself, in excluding such anoeunts;
and our sincere hope is that it will be adopted, as;
it deserves to be, in other cases"

A Congressional Code,--Is There
Nothing Better I
May not the propriety of pressing the question
f a Slave Coda for the Territories be doubted ?
s it likely that the measure would succeed ? Ani
it did not, is it probable that the South would
nite in disunion on account of that non-secoess ?
rould there not at onco spring up a largo party
mongst us who would say that this demand for a
lave code was a piece of supererogation in view
f the protection and security we can already lay
laim to, under the Constitution and the Laws as
hey uow stand interpretcd by the supreme Court ?
Vonld not this division terminate in non-action
y the South? And is such a result to be desired ?
Can we not do better than this? Without the
lemonstration of a slave code, cannot our mem
iers of Congress unite in tiringing on an issue
ipon the late action of the Kansas Territorial
.egislature ? Can they not make the move to
Lnuull her Territorial organization and compel
by force of arms if need be) her subserviency to
,onstitutional requirements ? Would not this be
m issue upon which the South wouli unite as one
nan? Would not such a precedent (if carried
mt) be of as much effect for good, in establishing
ur rights for the future, as a slave codo ? Would
.t not command the sanction of all Constitutional
sts, North as well as South? And, finally, would
I not create a test of principle upon which a rally
:ould be made in the coming Presidential canvass
Nith prospects of success to the party of justice
and right? Or, failing in this, would it not pro
ent a propitious occasion for a dissolution of the

Information to Pension Claimants.
Gzota E. WRITIo, Commissioner of the Pen
sion Office at Washington, has issued a circular
under authority, informing applicants for ponsions
that the bill )roposiin to grant penmions to the sol
diere of the trar of 1812, and the Indian ears of
that and former period, DID NOT DECOx? A LAW.
It is desired that the press extend this information,
as numerous applications are crowding in from all
parts of the country under the supposition that
the said bill eliel become a law.
In connection with this circular is a statement,
setting forth to the Department of the Interior, the
vast expenditure which such a bill would necessi
tate. It is a rathor long and apparently elaborate
exhibit. The general facts it arrives at are these:
There are 28,628 survivors (including widows)
who would be entitled under the bill to pensions of
$96 por annum.
There are 30,000 who would be entitled to $75
There are 75,85S, who would receive $50.
The average remaining life of this great crowd
of pensioners is computed to e-o about ten years.
Ileginning the pensions in 1S57, as the bill con
templates, the amnount necessary to appriate now
is at least $29,000.000.
The average sun annually requisite thereafter
would he about $8.800,000, for ten years.
The aggregate sum necessary to extinguish all
claims that may be preferred under the bill could
not be less than one hudred amd three millions.
To this add $.^50,000 to defray the increased ex
penses of the Pension Office and agencies.
This statement, Mr. Comutissio.ni WHITING
thinks. may be very far short of the reality. In
other calculations heretofore made in such matters
by our government oflicials, the actual expenditure
has nearly quadrupled the estimates first made.
If our country is prepared to sustain the bill in
question, it may no longer be asserted as an axiom,
that "republics are ungrateful."
The Houston Conference Female College, located
at Asheville, N. C., is one of the most flourishing
institutions in the South. Beautifully and health
fully situated, it commands a large and Increasing
patronage. By a catalogue before us, we find
that there were two hundred and eighty-one pupils
in attendance during the year 1858. It is supplied
with twelve or thirteen teachers in the various do
partments, and the rates of board and tuition are
alike moderate. This institution is a great favorite
with the Methodist denomination South, and has
also no inconsiderable popularity generally.
Lying in Bed.
The following hint on deferring our "up risings,"
is applicable these delightful Spring mornings;
we agree with the writer as to the evil effects of
lying in bed after daylight-and commend his
oiews to the particular attention of some we wot of
in this community.
No piece of indolence hurta the health more than
the custom of lying in bed too late in the morning;
and yet this is the general practice in cities, the
inhabitants seldom rising till eome time after the
sun Is up. The morning is undoubtedly the very
best time for exercise, while the stomach is empty
and the body refreshed by sleep. Besides, the
morning braces and strengthens the whole physical
system, and often answers the purposes of a cold
bath. Let any one who has been accustomed to
lie in bed till eight and nine o'clock in the morn
ing, rise by six, and spend an hour in walking,
riding or active diversion without doors, and he
will find his spirits cheerful and sereue through.

A fow weeks since, a gentlemnan in St. Louis
dug up $30,000; another, in Philadelphiia, the
same sumt; another, in New York, $20,000; and
nany others could be mentioned. The mine fromn
which these large amounts were taken was the
celebrated Lotteries of Wood, Eddy & Cor. Wil
