ARTEUR SIUINS, EDITOIL
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 1859.
Our Hamburg correspondent says: " On Friday
the 22nd we had a heavy hail-storm. The hail
stones were unusually large, and did some injury
to the growing crops in this vicinity. On Satur
day morning there was fro't."
An Augusta paper states that the hail fell larger
and thicker than they had ever before seen, breaking
the strongest glass in the sky-lighted rooms of the
city. They were large enough " to kill birds, and
did kill pigeons."
This valuable agricultural publication for May
has been received. It is under the editorial man

A massacre scarcely less thrilling than was that
of Dade's command, is just reported from the
Texas frontier. Capt. FOnD and forary-seren gal
laat rangjere were surrounded in camp by eight
hundred warriors of the'hostile tribes, aud refusing
to surrender, all of them were butchered except
the Captain and four inen who succeeded in cut
ting their way through. The fight is said to have
bosn a terrible one; and the unfortunate company
were only overpoweredat last by tremendous odds.
Great excitement was prevailing in Travis and

Recruita for Cuba.
The Augusta Diapatck Iearns that a recruiting

trying to catch up the enthusiasm. Has Edgefleld
any such drones to spare? If so, here's their
chance for "liberty or death."
Floral Fair in Charleston.
Please refer to the announcement of a FLOR AL
FAIR, to be given by the true-hearted ladies of
Charleston in a short time, its object being to in
crease the fund for building the CALaova Mos.c
xzsT. This fund has now reached the amount of
$30,000. The ladies propose to add as much as
possible to that amount during the present season
ad then to begin the work. The moneys thus far
raised are held in safe and remunerative invest
ments, whence they can be drawn forth for use at
any day. Our best wishes arc with our sister
citizens in their present genial Spring-tide effort.
No one who is going to town shortly will fail to
attend the Floral Fair. We think many of the
yiung gentlemen might make a point to go for
this occasion expressly. Certain it is, that they
would be greeted by woman's loveliest smiles ; and
where is there a bachelor " with soul so dead," as
not to go a thousand miles (if he could) for such a
moced. Then starch up and hasten to the Fair.
G3o soc the roses of Charleston; perhaps ye may
chance to gather a flower that will make you ever
bless the day when you hcoded the call of the
daughters of Calhoun.
Will not our ladies also pleas. notice thc an
nouncement, and mark the request made for con
tributions to the Fair?
The Southern Convention.
It is manifest that the Southern Convention,
soon to assemble at Vieksburg, MississippI, will
be largely attended by able delegations from all
the Southern States. We trust there will be a
-general attendance on the part of the representa
tion named by his Excellency, Gor. Gzsv, for
South Carolina. If suflcient prudence and politi
cal wisdom be brought to bear, In that assemblage,
to temper and enlighten the Impetuosity of South
era blood, it may be one of the means of arraying
the South on high and strong ground before the
country. Whatever is attempted should proceed
with the calm gravity demanded by the perils of

" The Couraut"..A Now Literary Lights.
The prospectus of this forthcoming literary pa
per has been issued some weeks. As the time of
Its publication is now drawing near, we take occa
sion to herald the circumstance to our readers
with more of prrtioularity than we have hitherto
The Courant will be based on a secure founda
tion and will not be dependent for its maintenance
upon Its subscription list only. The Messrs WAL
Emn, who undertake its proprietorship, have both
the skill and the meaus required fur the success of
an enterprize like this. The public may therefore
rest assured that the new Literary sheet will not
be a mushroom thing to live for a year and then
pass away. On the contrary, as we are informed,
no paper of the kind has been started at the South
under safer auepices. In subscribing to journals
of this character, one likes to feel that he is about
to aid (and be aided by) sumuething that will be
permanent as well as good. This may be calcula
ted upon in the present instance.
Of -its merits as a literary exponent of our sec
tion, it is impossible to speak with certainty until
it shall have given proof of its metal. But we
confidently anticipate, in the Courant, a delightful
family visitor, that will come every week freighted
with the fairest specimens of truth and beauty.
The chief ground of this expectation is the high
character and admitted cleverness of its editor,
Mr. HOWARD 11. CALDWELL,-a gentleman already
Identified with American literature by poetical
productions of much excellence, and whose name
will (we doubt not for a moment) become dear to
the ear of Southerners by its editorial connection
with the present litarary enterprize. In addition
to Mr. CALDWELL's classic pen, a host of able con
tributors are expected to make the Courant'# col
umns the medium of social, moral and literary
converse with our people. The following well
known Southern writers have expressed to the
Editor and Proprietors their sympathy with the
enterprise and their intention to contribute:
Hon. A. B. Meek, President Longstreet,
A. J. Requier, Professor Le Conte,
The Abbe Roquetto, Professor La Borde,
John W. Overall, Professor Rivers,
Hon. C. Gayarre, Professor Venable,
Dr. 0. B. Mayer, Professor Reynolds,
John R. Thompson, Professor Baruwell,
Paul H. Hayne, Professor Du Pro,
IV. M. Martin, Madame La ntrt,
Mrs. Caroline Glover, Mrs. M. Martin,
Miss Sallie Ada Reedy, Mifs Augusta Evins,
Henry Timrod, J. Wood Davidson,
0. M. Lieber.
There are, upon that list, poets, tale writers,
journalists, &c., of the true stamp. Marx, MAYR,
HArlo, LoN~sTaRET, Lz VERT and LA BoRDE, are
of themselves a galaxy whose presence would give
the rainbow hues of delight to any literary work,
in any literary circle. Many others there are upon
the list scarcely inferior to those we name. Many
more literateurs of merit too will doubtless be in
duced to enter the inviting portals of the Courant's
sanctum. And thus may its pages be ever bedecked
with gems of Southern thought and Southern feel.
Ing. Thus, like the Home Journal of the North,
may it be set "for the cultivation of the memora
ble, the progressive, and the beautiful," in South.
ern life and South experiences. -
We espebially colnmend this paper to our lady
readere. Begin with the first number. Help it to
bud, as well as to blossom and bear fruit; And

South Carolina. Address Wit. W. WAI.KER, Jr.,

A Farewell Nip.
JAcK Pnosr came back again on Saturday morn

look for him again until the 5th or next Novecmber.
The first Circus company that has ever exhibi
ted in Edgefield, without advertising in the Die.
triet paper, came along last Saturday. It is called
BucarLar's CRaCUS ;--waa never heard of in these
parts before, and, it is hoped, will never be heard
of again. As soon as we ascertained that they
did not intend advertising, we knew something
was " rotten in the State of Buckley." And, sure
enough, our prognostics were exactly true. The
music wagon was so rotten, it broke down in the
loins before getting here; the circus pole could
not stand up against a strong puff of April wind
the brass instruments were defective and the in.
strumentalists more so. We dixd not of course at
tend the exhibition; but from those who did, we
learn that it was the poorest show of this or any
other season. And, as might be expected, the
toll-gate keeper of the Edgefild & Hamburg Plank
Road was after them the next clay with a sharp
stick for non-payment of toll.
Such is a sample of those who are too stingy tc
advertise in the papers.
The State at large has often had cause to upraid
the public men of Richiand District for their
wretchedly corrupt method of electioneering. It is
vain to tell us, that it is none of our business, and~
that we would do better to curs our own faults.
The corruption of the ballot-box iis a crying eril,
and one which should be dlenouced in every coom
mowealth by the cotmon voice of that commuon
wealth, however covertly (in a corner or in aifork)
it may be done. In. South Carolina, this eni
scarcely exists outside of Richland Distric. But

was clearly manifested by the assembling of crowds
about the corners anel other places. On Monday
morning men were brought to the. polls like sheep
that had been prepared for the shambles and
marched to the box with tickets supplied them In
public, and as mete automtos, they deposited
their vote, without any eeeminmg regard for the
person for whom they were voting.
We have heard of "Bull-pons" in Columnbia,
and disgraceful scenes enacted by those engaged
in that sort of electioneering, but, never witnessed
anything of that sort.
All of the purchaseable material were brought
into the City from the surrounding country, and
furnished quarters and board with any quantity
of bald face, until their votes wore deposite.1, when
they were turnedloose on the community, degraded.
and in a few eases drunk, and disorderly. There
is a great resposibility resting some where, and we
have no doubt that it will be sensibly felt ; for upoen
the heads of those who inaugurated this degraded,
wretched plan for obtaining votes, ought the cen.
sures of the respectable portion 'of society to rest.
We do not know who were the piarties engaged in
the conduct we have denoneid, but many respec
table citizens who witnessed it, have expressed
their disapprobation, meriting, as it does, the
reprobation of every good citizen.
The Bulletia goes on to call for help in abating
this mischievous spirit of corruption, and to this
end asks that the Legislature take in charge the
election of Sheriff, Ordinary, and other similar
eletions that now come before the people. If the
Bmlletia means to extend this Legislative shield all
over the State, we demur and that very loudly.
If he means only Rie'lad, we have not so much
to say. But why not also give the election of
Senator and Representativee to the Legislature ?
Would it not be bettor to make a "clean sweep"

Is due to the people of South Carolina, that inch
corruption should be energetically soppreasoed in a

laws are enacted from year to year, and towards

A Handsome Establishment.
In going through the furniture rooms of Mouro.
WITT & Hlunsox the other day, we could but say
to ourself,-" Well, surely this is as handsome an
establishment as the interior of South Carolina
can afford, if not equal in many respects to city
houses of the same description." We so said, be
cause we were really surprized at the beautiful lot.
of furniture so well displayed, especially. in the:
principAl room fronting on the Public Square and'
adjoining Mr. JOHN COLGAN's Tailoring Store.
Really, it is a eight worth seeing; and we recom
mend every ue to go there and make an inslpce
tion. WITr & lensos's assortment of chairs,
tables, sofas, whatnots, bureaus, sideboards, French
bedsteads, &c., is very attractive. There also may
be found writing-desks and secretaries of the.most
approved todels, and a few of the most elegant
wardrobes we have ever seen. Various other
things may be seen at these well-supplied rooms.
But go, all, and see for yourselves,-especially
the ladies who have to keep our houses decent and
in order,-and how can they do this if the 'gude
men' will not supply them with neat furniture.

The Mississippi Democracy.
The Mississippi papers are reporting the pro
ceedings and resolutions of county Demooratio
meetings recently held in all parts of the State
preparatory to the Democratic State Convention.
They breathe the truest Southern spirit throughout.
They repudiate DoCaOAs and his heresies with in.
dignant vehemence, and extol the gallant JEr.
DAvis as the man for the times. They commend
President BucBAmAN for whatever he has done in
accordance with sound Democratic doctrine, atl
hesitate not to condemn him in every departure
therefrom. There is an earnestness and indepen
dence about these resolutions, fresh from the peo.
ple that they are, which cheers one with the hope
that the day is not distant when the South will
combine to make a final stand for complete present
justice, as well as security for the future, at the
hands of the Federal Laegislature,-or else demand
a dissolution of the present government and an
equitabl.division of the common property. When
that stand shall be firmly taken, then will our po
litical elouds vanish and all be safe. Nine cheers
to the Mississippi Democracy for placing so spirited
an example before the South!

The Mail Service.
It will appear in a few days that the Mail Service
of the Union has been greatly reduced, in conse
quence of fhe refusal by Congress to make the
necessary appropriation for the exigencies of the
Post OfficeDepartment. In the So4thwest Division
of the service, composed of the States from Ala.
bams to Texas inclusive, the reduction will take
efeotimmediately. And in the Southern Division,
embracing our own State, the reduction will occur
in June, when the eiisting contracts expire. The
measure is a Cabinet one, forced on by the diffieul
ties oreated by the non-action of Congress. The
work has been extensive, and will be administered
without fear, affection or favor. Many daily routes
have been reduced to tri-wcekly ones; tri-weeklies
to weeklies; and some altogether discontinued.
Many decapitations in office too are taking place,
a number of special mail agents having been al
ready discharged and the official service otherwise
diminished. .Lt may be expected that a storm of
discontent will roar about the President's ears.
But the people should remember that he is not to
blame. Let them ask their Representatives why
all this has comne about. They, not the Preident,
are the respommlbio party.

How to Raise Turkeys.
We have before us a diet for young turkeys,
transmitted all the way from Noxubie County,
Mississippi. It is said to be the food used for them
by an old lady in those parts who raises four and
five hundred turkeys every year for the New Or
leans market. Echo rays, mark it: "Bake an
ash-cake with onions or eseballots chopped up in
it, and without salt. Crumble and mix with curd,
and feed as abundantly as you please." This is
very like a plan we used the year we raised a flock
of forry-nine ; but we always commenced by cram
ming down the infant biped's throat a full grain
of black pepper on the day of its hatching. Can
our agricultural friends over there on Page First
say any thing germane to the matter ? Or have
we antd the old lady of Noxubie exhausted the

a light one and a heavy one, for different kinds of
work: anid he played so strong, that he had to got
a piece of steel made for the end of his finger, as
a asort of shield like, to prevent his tearing off his
nail, Hie was worry fond of playing the heavy
one ; amid, when we were coming up the coast, he
would sometimes strike his strongest notes, and
then turn round to me so proud, and say: "Ah !
Eph., what 'll they think, up there, when they
hear the old Cremona speak like that 1'
' It didi not make any difference even when he
took sick. He played away all the same. But
after he got here, be could play only on the light
one. He used to have it hanging aainst the wall,
so as be could reach it in hed. 'a t any time
you went in, you'd hear him talking to the old
Cremona, as he called it. and making it talk hack
to him. But Ly'm-by, he got so weak he could
scarcely hold on to it: and I have sat by his Jbed
and watched him till the sound became so faint
it seemed as if he apmd the b'anjo were both falling
into a dream. All the while he kupt a good heart,

along; and every now and then he would raise
himself mup and say: ' Alt! how I '11 make 'em

' But at last Ito felt that be was going : and, after
some straight, sensible talk, he told us, 'when ho

looking at a person who ho was going to part with

merely drop the weight of his thin fingers on the
cords. There was no stroke to his touch at all.
Hie could just barely make a aoundl, and that was
so fine that it appeared to vanish away like the
buss of a fly. It was so dim, that I do n't believe

if he gave it up. Then be looked at mc, as if he

OUR VISIT 'T0 COLUMBTA TO HEAR
DnAir ('oi..-AII the musical world having been
kept in a ferment by critical remarks-somne hypo
critical we fear-in regard to the merits of Piceo
loini. as a singer and artiste. we, pour, simple,
country-folk, resolved to travel down to Columbia,
to see, hoar, he enraptured, and-spend .our aur
plus money ! Imagine us then, slowly wending
our devious way through sand and rough spots
past Leesville, on, on through Pompey-town, still
on, through the almost oppressive desert that has
to be crossed to gain the bridge; and then, as we
discharged the toll bill, away we clatter up to
Hunt's, feeling as If a load-aye, and a heavf
had been removed from our individual shoulders.
Now began the struggle of A'ed'ntry ra.Cty
We felt as if being there, the fun ought to begin,
but it did not until the hour of eight P. M. Did
not it seem an age from four until then ? Time
was riding in his feaden, chariot that day surely ;
but after a while we wore able to get our seats end
distress our brains with conjoetures as to what was
Oh ! here she is,-imagine an insane boot-heel
stampede-graceful acknowledgements, &e. Airs.
PAnvsooos might have well imagined her eart
say-bnders were fled. She sang ! we listened to
the soft Tuscan. rolling from her tongue, and
watched her form and face, with its coquetish
changes-Now Cos,,, we do not know much about
ne music; true we have enjoyed some, our musical
friends were enraptusrcd with ; but apart from Its
grae and prettiness-not beauty-wero g to say
if the foreign high prieond, be-praised artice I. no
ietter tihan we found it, in mercy give us somte
thing of native growth heroafter. Why is it, that
we, who toil laboriously for dollars, will persIst in
wasting our rewards on foreign Artists, to the ut
ter ruin, buy our carelessness, o'f talent "to the
manor horn."~ Surely there are -sonme among us,
whose liquid notes are tuned in puorust harmony,
full power, and tende~rest. melody. Yet tre, strain
ing our eyes to greet the expiectant fweig2,eru,
los shut our ears, and purses, to their charws !
I mind nme once to have seen in a Columbia pa
per, an artice proclaiming the praises, the merits
-it never could have done justice to the worth of
the " Carolina mnocking-birdi !" You, my dear
Co, have, with others of us, enjoyed the joyous
music that she uttered on several occasions'; full
-n...te4aallha graiss bastamuA sbe
were deserved. But, could she begin to command
ho pecuniary omolument that has been cheerfully
ictorded to this foreigner ? I blush to say the
des is absurd! Yet it is the opiniom of many,
who have heard our native cantatrico, and also
istened.to this Italian, that "our own ased mock
lig Bird was her superior."
,As for us, arot-being critics in music, we can not
tssect each piece and show where the difference

Riches and Poverty.
If rich, it is ca.y to conceal our wealth; but if
poor, it is by no moans easy to conceal our pover
ty. It is less difficult to hide a thousand dollars
than one bol in our coat. It would be agreeable
now for some individuals who have never had an
)pportunity-of concealing their wealth, from the
ract of their never possessing it, to have that op
portunity afforded them. This they can readily
ecure by. enclosing $10, $5, or $21, to Wood,
Eddy & Co., Wilmington, Del., or Augusta, Ga.
These respective amounts will entitle the writer to
a whole, half, or quarter ticket in their great legal
[sed lotteries, and perhaps to the capital prize of
$50,000. These lotteriea were formerly under the
respective management of Gregory & Maury, and
Swan & Co., and are secured by charter from the
States in which they areestablished.-N. Y. Times.
The Result of the Echo Case.
The brig Echo (or Putnam) was captured
last summer, off the coast of Cuba, by the
United Statessloop-of-war Dolph in, with three
hundred Africans on board. The Africans
were returned to Africa by the government
of the United States. The brig Echo was
condemned, sold, and forfeited to the United
States. And the crew of the Echo were in
dicted for piracy underthe laws of the United
States; and after a long and complete trial,
the jury have brought in a verdict of not
What considerations shall we suppose, then,
moved a jury to bring in a verdict of "not
guilty ?" They must have yielded to one
of two classes of considerations. The first
is a want of proof of complicity. The pris
oners were simple seamen. Knowing the
ignorance -and want of foresight of these
men as a class in society-knowing also the
mode in which crews are collected very gen
erally in the Atlantic ports, viz: they are
gathered up by a ship-broker, and most fre
quently sign their names, if they are learned
or sober enou;h to sign, or make their marks,
as in this case they did, without knowing or
caring what voyage they were going upon, or
even to what port they were bound. And
especially in a business like this, would the
Captain or Agent care little to inform the
sailors of the nature of an adventure, in the
trade; because the large profits of such busi
ness to the owners, and the great peril to
the persons and lives of the crew, would in
duce them to demand extravagant wages.
The ship's articles say the vessel (Putnam)
was bound for the Iland of St. Thomas
which is little more than a recruiting station
off Africa--so that a knowledge of the nature
of the expedition was not brought home to
Or else the jury might not have gone so
far into the specialty of thbe case, even as this.
It is most probable they may have been sat
isfied with thinking that it would be not only
inconsistent, but cruel aand hypocritical for
them, as members of a community where
ayes are bought and soldl every day, and
are as rmuch anti as frequent articles of coma
merce as the sugar and molasses which they
produce, to pass condemnation and a verdict
of guilty of death upon miean whose only
crime was that they were going to a far
country, to bring in more supplies of these
articles of trade, these commodities ; and in
this case not even to trespass upon our soil,
but to carry them to a foreign land-to Cuba
-and merely throw them into the market of
It is most probable that thais was the indu
cinag ground of the verdict, atnd if so, every
other case will be the echto to this. Further

" Why is it that the rainbow and the cloud

resigning office, to recommend to tile Queen

Charles Morgan, of Tredegtr ; Mr. Egerton,
of Tatton, Cheshire ;and Col. . George WVynd

promotion of Lord Derby's followers to the
ranks of the Baronetcy.

And daily every effort bend
To rise and join him there."
