ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1859.
From Monday tho 4th instant up to Saturday
the 9th, the weather in this locality was peculiarly
cool. One morning we observed the thermometer
standing at 5S*, time 5, o'clock A. M. An easterly
wind prevailed during the week with occasional
mists andshowers. 'endor plants partially wilted
under the chilling 'nflucne. With the rest, cot
ton has been a sufferer; it has at least, in slang
parlance, not been "set forward" by the snap.
M. BACon's Concert on Thursday evening last
was crowded by a fashionable but (we are sorry to
say) not an attentive audience. The young ladies
did as well as could be expected under the press
of a continual buzz of conversation, Miss G. and
the Miss P. sang somo-beautiful sen ;s. To make
distinctions in the instrumental part of the per
formance would be Invidious, further than to re
mark that Mr. B. executed " Home Sweet Home
and Variations" In his usual effective style.
In reply to the Courier's remark of the 9th
instant, we have only to say that we did suppose
the editors of the Courier scrutinized every thing
that appeared in their paper. They ought to do
so, at any rate, so far as any remarks they publish
may atfect the standing of their own subs'ribers,
citizens of the sane State. When we said " Pink
and the 0Courier mistake their man," we meant
simply that Maj. BAcoN was not a jocky or a
trickster, as 1iuk's etricture would represent him,
but a' gentleman.

The Balloon Voyage.
The large balloon which sailed from St. Louis
for the Atlantic coast a week or two since, is re
ported to have landed near Utica, N. Y. in loss
than 24 hours after leaving St. Louis. The pas
sengers (4 in number) were safely restored to terra
firma, with only a few scratches incurred by on
countering tho limbs of forest trece, into which the
balloon was driven (on its descent) by a violent
wind. The experiment is regarded a succes fad
Opp, and Wism, the awronant, is now willing and
anxious to Inake the trial of crossing the Atlantic
Ocean. lie things he can make the trip in one
fourth the timo it is now made by the steamers,
sy in 2j days. Wonderful times!
It is with pleasure 'we make a note of the fact,
that our village is still advancing in arehitectural
amendment and adornment. Thu evidences of this
are observable in several parts of town. The
dwelling house of Mr. J. H. M., just fully com
pleted on East Hill, makes a very beautiful addi
tion to that portion of the villago landse:pe.
Further out, Mr. E. If. Y. is putting up a ieat
cottage on a site we have always adnired; it can
be rendered a lovely spot. In the heart of the
town too, wre observe a very striking alteration
in the building (late a pulilic house) now on ned
by Maj.-S. S. T. The young architect, Mr. TI.L
nrAX WATsoN, who has this work in charge, has
really done himself credit and the place an honor
by thie very handsome and really stylish piece of
workmanship. We wish him great success in the
business for which he is evidently so well qualilled
both in taste and judgment. It is gratifying also
to be able to state, that our Commissioners of
Publie Buildings have engaged our old and always
calpable builder, Mr. RaxEY', in repairing the Court
House. We know the work will be .done as it
-should be. Other improvements hitherto noted as
being in progress, are now completed to the in
creased cheerfulness of the picture. Let all catch
the spirit and dress up their old houses anew. So
shall we have a beautiful village.

Are We to Accept Douglms?

nerely 'o startle our readers; neither do we take
as the text of an indignation article. Looking

be brought upon us, and believing that South

ple of the State have never had che ubject direct

how our leaiers have determined the question for
There are several disconnected reflections that
may'serve to elicit thought upon the subject-mat
ter of our interrogatory ; and we simply tate them
down for what they ire worth.
1. SEXAToa DOUGLAs is probably the most
available man in the Democratic ranks for the
next Presidency; in fact, it is conceded on all
hands, that (with the support of the united South)
his success in the race would be0 next to certain.
2. SENAToa DoVuLAs is a recognized National
Democrat, and identical in feeling and action with
the Southern Democrats except upon the single
point of Congressional legislation for thedirect pro
tection ofsl:ve property in the territories. le is a
non-inaterrentionis in the sense of the term held to
be correct by th,: Democrats of the North,-in the
sense of the term which Mr. STEPnEs, of Georgia,
has declared "an overwhelming majority" of the
Southern people held in the settlement of the great
territorial question of 1850 and 1851,-in the sense
which Mr. STE'UENS himself now holds to be the
fair construction of that principle of -onpromise.
3. If Mr. DoUOLAS is not to be elected Pres!
dent, Mr. D.-ma, of Massachusetts, or some worse
abolitionist, may be; and if we are to decide be
tween the two alternatives, is it better to take the
latecrt Will posterity hold us justified in such a
stop ? The expectation is absurd, In the present
condition of things, that tle election of a Black
Republican will bring about disunion. There is
too much prosperity, too much contentment, too
large a feeling of security, at the South, to admit
the idea of her revolutionizing on account of the
merc result of any election unaccompanied by
overt acts of tyrany and oppression. If this sup
posed good then is not be anticipated, have we
any other cause to prefer the rule of a Black Re
publican President to that of a North Western
4. There appears at present to be no other man
than DoUGLAs upon whomi the Democratic party
at the North can concentrate with effect, or in
other words, under whose bannor they can defeat
all the elements of the opposition.
5. These Northern Democrats ask the nowina
tion of DOUGLAS at the hands of the people of the
South, in order that they may vanquish their and
our enemies in that quarter of the Union, holding
forth to us the promise that with another defeat
the host of Black Republicanism will be broken
to pieces and the power of the Democracy for good
be permaneutly established North of Mason &
6. Is it possible at present to erect a great
Southern Sectional Party at a sacrific-of the old
Democratic organization ? If so, then might our
people be appealed to with sonie show of reason to
turn away from every thing that will not lead
directly on to that consumnation ? Then, pet
haps, might there hie somae pretence for persuaing
them that the election of a ilack itepublienn
President is a thing, to be desired. But where is
the indication that such a Southern party is had
in anticipation anywhere throughotut the South,
except in the, smnetume of certaiu zealous newspa
per editors? Where is there a flaw at present in
the separate Democratic organirsations' of the
States of the South ? Whero Is there any evidence
of a prospoectiVe disruption of this party umachine
ry ? If ItANK shall be elected President-if
even SEwA RD could be the man,--is it credible
;hat the Democratic Party, having foutght together
to avert that result and still standing together on
all essential principles, would fall to pitees on the
event? If the South should be ready then to
move for disunion, of course the strictly sectional
line would at once be drawn; but if not, is it to be
supposed that the South, in thme Unihon, would give
up the power of her Democratic Position, would
throw off her tons of thousands of friends at the
North, and draw within herself to no purpose ?
Such a course on her part is far fronm pr..bable.
It cannot bo but that our friends who secretly hope
for good in this aspect, from the elevat ion of a
Black Republican to the Presidlency, will be
egregiously disappinited. Neither will that result
atuse disunion, nor will it tbring about the ihrma
tion of a iurely Southern p:urty. It wold seem
then to b~e a taost mistaken policy, to allow our
selves to be beaten in the Presidentil race by a
Black Republican, if we can (do any better,-atnd

SALUDA, July 2, 1850.
To the Pastors and Congregatione of the 'urimu.
Denomtinations of Protestant Chritians in South
At the last Annual Convention of the Bible So
elety of this State, South Carolina waE unanimous
ly pledged by her assembled delegates, to raise five
thousand dollars for the distribution of the Bible,
through the American Bible Society, in foreign
countries. The undersigned were appointed a
Committee to address the State at large on this
important subject. The fants which induced this
resolution and now form the basis of this appeal
are as follows: Intelligence has been received by
the Parent Society that there are not a few places
in the West Indies and in Spanish and Purtuguese
America where the Ilibe can be profitably circu
lated, to the removal of superstition and error,
and the salvation of souls.
An appeal comes likewise from France for aid
to give the Bible to the many there who are ready
and willing to receive it. Eight or ten thousand
dollars are wanted for this ield alone, by the
American Bible Society. France, with anl her ro
finements and superior civiiiution, needs and now
asks for the Bible; shall we refuso It? Germany,
too, we are credibly informel, furnishes an impor
tant field for this work. The land of Luther asks
again for the Bible. From Constantinoplo comes
up a most urgent demand fur the pure word of
God. Translations, requiring at least S14,001, aro
wanted in the modern, Amonian, Armono-Turkish,
and Bulgarian languages. Here, then, is a " wide
and effectual door" set open for the entrance of
god's sanctifying word. Here, in the very heart
of the Mohammedan empire, multitudes are ask
ing for the pure truth of Jesus. Nowhere, we are
assured, is the Bible more desired or better used.
In Syria, too, an Arabic Bible is nearly ready for
the press and widely called for. India and Siam
are asking for the everlasting Word, and now
China and Japan, with their untold millions, have
been opened by a miracle of Providence, for the
free and unobstructed spread of God's merciful
truth. Here the spiritual slumber of ages is to be
broken. How may this be done, but by the light
and power of God's quickening word.
The great question comes up, shall these wide
fields of gracious opportunity be occupied or no!
Men, sinful immortal men, aro asking of us the
bread that caine down from Hleaven, and which
we, under our Father's bounty, have and "to
pare." Shall we deny it? shall we cast before
them only the stone of our unbelief? The whole
missionary world is now arranging Itself for the
fultilment of that glorious prophecy, " The earth
shull be ful of the knowledge of the Lord as the
waters cover the sea." What shall be our relation
to this grand result?
The Bible Society of South Carolina has already
answered the question before (God. It has pledged
this State for fil'e thaoasnd dollars towards this
great and blessed work. Christians of South Caro
lina, we ask now your co-operation in raising this
amc out. We look for a liberal response to this
ciii for the Bible, reaching us from every quarter
four globe. Let us in gratitude for our own dis
Ishing mercIes as an enlightoned- and Chris
tian people, give "the word of the Lord free course."
Let us soatter broadcast this seed of life, as the
ploughshare of D~ivine Providence prepares the
wmy. Then shall a harvest, of righteousness and
pee somon wave luxuriantly over the wide fields
of our wasted humanity, and God's promised king

The Fourth in C h ester---Speech of H1on.
W. W. Boyce.
We copy -he following from the Cheeter
The celebration of the eighty-third antiver
sary of Aierican Independence, at Pleasant
Grove, was eminently succeasful and pleasant.
The day was cool and agreeablc, and the ex
ercises interesting and instretive. The orator
of the day, Mr. E. J. McDaniel, acquitted
himself admi rably-his address was enthusi
astically received by the largje and appreciative
audience in attendance. The Hon. W. W.
Boyce, we were pleased to see, was present,
and with bin fellow-citizens and consti:uents
of Chester, entered heartily and with spirit
into the patriotic demonstrations of the occo
sion. In response to the unanimous wish of
the large arowd of citizens who had gathered
there from the different sections of the l)is
trict, he cane-forward in the afternoon and
delivered a sieech of an hour's length, in hi.s
happiest and best style: We have neither the
time nor the space now to give anything like
a synopsis of this speech, which was so well
delivered and so well received by all present.
Mr. Boyce's opinions on the great political
questions which are now before the country
are well knownmi and understood, and he did
not, on this occasion, differ at all from his
positions as firnerly expressed and delivered.
He recommends 'moderation' as the wisest
and safest antd best policy for the South, but
he does not, as some would most unjustly in
sinuate, advise anything like 'submission.'
He earnestly deprecates the raising here of
abstract and :ruitless issues-such as the rc
vival of the African slave trade-the enact
ment by Congress of a slave code, as it is
called, for the territories, ke., as such a course
operates only and solely to our disadvantage,
by creating divisions and distractions at home,
and by giving to our enemies additional capi
tal on which to worW, as the leaders of the
Black Republicans livi only by fanaticalgita.
tion and excitement. Practically, they care
nothing for Alavery nor for the slaves-all
they desire is power, and to obtain this they
will not hesitate to resort to any measures
however base and selfish. It were indeed un
wise in us thts to give them anl additional
element of egitation, and consequently of
power, by creating these issues on mere aL.
stractions. Mr. B. would deplore the election
of a Black Republican President-this, in his
=pinion, .would be a sufficient cause for the
South to dissolve her connection politically
with the Federal Government. He conid
never consent to remain in the Union but as
an equal, and if the Black Republicans obtain
possession of the Government, the South can
no longer hoo for equality in the Union.
Bu0t in the meantime, let us faithfully discharge
all our duties and oldigations to the Constita
tion and the country, so that when the great
question is presented to us we may beprepareid
in heart and mind to meet it. Let us not
choose a dissrlution of the Union as a thing
to be desired and labored for by ourselves,
but let us be prepared to accept it as an alter

they were disappointed, most emiphtically.

country brands. The demand is light, and quota

moderate demand, at $1 per bushel, and sells by
the car load at from 95 to 08 cents.
Provieilon.-Bacon is in good supply, and hog
round sells from 101 to 11 cents, as to quality and
quantity. Fine hams range from 12 to 14 cents.

"WHO IS THE HEIR ?"
T IE Proprietor of the-Yorkille Engquiws: pro
poses to answer this question (which, by the
way, concerns every man and woman in the coun
try) by the publiention of a spirited ORIGINAL
NOUVELETTE, written expreesly for the Engffi
rcr by a talented young writer of this State. his
Story, which, wherever it is read, will produce a
sensation, is entitled,
" WHO IS THE HEIR;
Or, The Dark Mystery of the Deserted Houo."
BY WILLIE LIGHTHEART,
Author of "Lula Woodswortb," "Winnie and
Willie," "The Children of the Sun," " Old
Heads and Young Hearts," &c., &c.
The publication will commence with the FIRST
WEEK IN AUGUST, and continue through the
ensuing three months, unfolding a plot repleto
with stirring incidents, dark and mysterious de
velopments, with a strange and startling deuou
ment. The Proprietor, willing to encourage South
ern Literature by practical means, has naid a
round price for this production, and hopeathat a
generous public patronage will romunerate his out
lay and thus encourage, by the only method possi
ble, the development of home-talent.
In addition to this, seyeta contributors of known
ability are constantly engaged for the Enquirer.
In every.number, letters of correspondence ap
pear from different sections. The brilliqnt and
witty " RUDY " writes regularly. Our promising
young poet, J. WOOD- DAVIDSON, contribites
every other week. A lady of Columbia,' who is
well known in newspaper literature, but whose
name we are not at liberty to disclose, has been
permanently engaged for our coldmns, and will
write short and brilliant sketches for each number.
In addition to those, we receive constant supplies
from Rev. J. IV. KELLY, J. FORREST GOW
AN, W. W. EAST, Mrs. X. W. STRATTON,
"PUNCH," "A. H. L." "L Y. Z." who,, with
our own strict and careful attention to current af
fairs, make up a weekly melange which, the pro
prietor believes, will interest readers of every las
and should attract the patronage of our people.
The Enguircr is published In Yorkvillo, S. C., at
$2, in advance. Clubs of Teg, $15, and an extra
paper to the person making up the club'. .
Send for it immediately, so as to get the first
number of " WHO IS THE HEIR?"' All'letters
ahould be addressed to the "Enquirer," Yorkville,
