Death of ChancellorDargan.
It is with unfeigned morrow that we announce
to our readers the death of Chancellor Gzonon
W. DAnoAN, which event occurred in Columbia
S. C., on the 13th instant. He died in the 59th
year of his age, and in the 12th year of his ser
vices upon the Chancery Bench of South Caro
The deceased was a just Judge in the fullist
acceptation of that form as applied to man. Nor
was he less faithful, or less discriminating, than
just. lie was beloved as well as respected bythe
whole bar of his State, and no public man perhaps
could claim to be a more universal favorite with
the people of South Carolina. He falls, lamented
by all. Scarcely shall his place be supplied with
as guid a man or as able a Chancellor. Long be
the memory of his virtues cherished ! Ever be
his mamo enrolled among the distinguished war
thies of our State, as a model and a light for his
successors! The honored place which know him
so lately shall know him no more forever. He is
gone to appear in judgment before the High Chan
cery of Heaven. May he already have found, that
his earthly petitions for Mercy and for Pardon
have been duly entered by the Recording Angel
in the Great Book of Eternity, and that a decree
in his favor (with deep reverence be it said) has
been pronounced by the Almighty Judge of all
The Darlington Flag,-the gallant newspaper
exponent of the District with which the deceased
was identified in life,-has the right to speak here
wv his ne.rtfricad. Ponder the feeling and noble
tribute which that journal thus lays upon his bier:
" Correct in reasoning, quick in conception and
deeply versed in the law, his decisions were always
regarded by legal gentlemen with much respect,
and they ever gave evidence of much thought and
bore upon them the impress of a noble intellect.
If he was respected for his ability, he was loved
for his amiable disposition and courteous deport
ment, which were exhibited to every one who ap
proached him in his offici-al capacity. Honorable
elevation did nut work i hin forgetfulness of the
proprieties of life ; thert Vms no austerity, no false
pride, no assumed superiority about him: he was
aooessible at all hours, and to every one having
business to transact with him. Because of these
characteristies, which are too seldom found with
one occupying his position, he was the Lawyer's
favorite among the Chancellors, and now, that
the friends of his boyhood and the acquaintances
of his riper years join his relatives in weeping
over his remains, there are many throughout the
State, who have known him only in his official
capacity, who will claim the privilege of joining
them in their lamentations.
It is as a private individual that those who knew
him beast, will most delight-to think of him. He
was gentle in disposition, easy and affable in
manners, courteous and polite in deportment; and
in generosity, he was the very embodiment of
all that is honorable; he was, indeed, one of whom
it may be truly said:
" His life wAs gentle; and the elements
So mix'd in him, that nature might stand up,
And say to all the world, This toe a man /"
Reaching him, the cry of distress never fell upon
deafened ears; his heart was ever open to the
wants of others, and his hand ever ready to sup
ply them. However he may be honored for his
intellect, and loved for his virtues, this must be
his most worthy epitaph-" He was a friend to the
poor, a physician to the sick and a father to the

le thought there was more in 94 newspuper than
in almost any other class of readng to stimulatQ
the opening intellect to thought and to study. He .
regarded it a happy substitute novel-reading
and other kinds of literary com ition designed on
chiefly to amuse and gratify thilmagination. It
was the nature of youth, he tho f, to look out
for mental food of an enterta ~iAb et|r,suited
to its developing capabilities. If caught by the
absorbing webs of fiction whiohabound in our gt
literature, there was danger of injurious excess in m
the indulgence. There were minds fortified th
within themselves to guard a at this indul- if
genoe. But there were also many unable to do so. 10
For these last, he thought the newpper an admi. bo
rable resort. Its weekly freight of news and gen
eral intelligence supplied to the youngmind acom
bination of entertainment andinformition well ul
ted to its awakening search after novelty, andyet not
in so captivating a garb as to draw it too much
from strict educational duties. tb
W.e have often thought of these views of Mr.
CALROUN, once expressed to our humblb self; and
we can say with truth that we haveseldom glanced
over the columns of the newspaper, however lowly
its pretensions, without finding abundant material
to sustain the soundness of his sentiments. d
But the newsapaper is much more than- this.
Under Its generic name, tie press, It has well been
termed In this free country the palladium of our
liberties. It is the vehiele, and the only available
vehicle, if free discussion on alf questions that a
arise Implicating the government and the govern
ed. It is the medium of giving utteranee to that
com populi, out of which truth is generally evolved h
in the result. It Is through this instrumentality ,
that the pro and the con of overy political dispute
are laid bare to the Intelligence of the sovreign t
people by their respective advocates. It is indeed a
the great record of the pleas and proceedings of all
public causes, necessary to be heard and under
stood by every free community, ina'rder that their
decree in the promises may be onligstened and just.
That there is often egregious error in these dis- b
cussions, no one wilf affect to deny. But the
machinery has within itself the umans of correc.:
tion. If by the press an erroneoms principle Is
announced, by the press also It is posed to pro ,
per oondemaation. If there be aq exremence on
- the body politic, by the press is icaunterised and
enred. If there be an issue raised involving the a
public weal, the press it is that eaniassesits every
bearing and estimates it in all iti probable and t
possible results. What though bsurdities and c
truths are alike the fruits of this free dishsusIon I
Such are the fruits of all human orgumentatlon.
Yet here, as in all the strifes of ma, the saving
conclusion is notbe denied, that "i the multitude
of counsel there is wisdom."
Again, the-neteepaper, slurred asi imes is
by public functionaries, is one o of con
srators of law and order In the S Is quick
exposure of crime, renders it "a Aerrto evil
doers." Not only by its ready ~u~irt of thei
powers that be, is it a friend to "jultloe; but it is I
equally so In Its watchful rces of unlawful
practices in their incipiency, a~ before those 1
practices have become matter of j dicial investi
gation. It is a censor morasm havil such a posi

It dare not use Its power otherwise than in the

al cases, whether thus direted or dtherwiLse, the bi
newpaper, at least iu free America, stands in holy a

Our conclusion is, that thme naewepaper, whether o

sose, was of course the law, which he practiced
ccessfully in Darlington and the adjoining Dis

L Voice from Cambridge.--Pine Woods
vs. Oak and Hickory.
MR. Enrron: You seem to be partial to the
ino Woods, 1. e, you seldom extend your travels
nto the Clay lands, where we know you have a
rent many more friends and admirers than in the
ie Wooda. We hear you say that such an one
an the best Corn, another the best Cotton you
ae secn ; when lo ! and behold ! your observa
ions have been confined to the Pine woods. Now,
I. Enivia, we (do not think that exactly right ;
a t goes abroad that the pine woods of Edge
eld make up the best part of it. What do you
uppose travellers on the S. C. Rail Road from
iken to Hamburg will think of us ? Edgefield
xtends from Aikeli to Ninety-eix, and from the
avannah to the Saluda; and in her boundaries
re nearly all the fine lands known as " Cam
ridge Land,"-a few plantations being on the
bbeville side. Now, Ma. Earvon, we of Cam
ridge would like to have a hearing occasionally;
nil though you have often been invited to see us
nl as often declined, we still extend the invi
tion. If you will come, we will treat you to a
arbecue or two, and show you that we also have
>me corn and cotton that might compare with
,at of the Pine Woods.
In fact, Mr. EDITOn, we raise all the products
the Pine woods, vis: Corn, Cotton, Rye, Peas
ai Potatoes; then we raise Wheat, Oats, Barley
ad somec Pumpkmn. So you see we are ahead of
ae'PIne woods in raiety of products. Our am
itious pjlanters.are also turning their attention to
iother important crop !-You recollect a former
peaker of the U.' S. Houso of Representatives, a
w years ago, addressed a Wall Street audience
adl asserted that the " Hay Crop" of the United
ttes was more important than the Cotton crop
Ethe Southern States. Boon after, the paulo of
157 occurred, and the Hay crop was no where.
t where wa Cotton? Ainy ! But Mr. EDivon,
Is Panic is over, and War prevails in Europe.
ig Cotton has gone down and Hay up. Ergo,
go now for Hay ; and never was there a better
ospect in the Cambridge neighborhood for a good
op ol7 it.! Go where you will, In the Cotton, or
the Corn, it is all the same ; the grass is truly
urishing ; uplands looks like meadows; and If
can have sunshine in August to save It, what
ops of Hay may be made I Now I know you
ill say, I wonder who has the beet grass crop up
re ? All that I can answer is, Come up and see.I
'ethinkcs, howerer, this will be your conclusion:
here all are so fine, it would be hard to deter
io to whom the premium belongs. -
