WE understand from several sources that the
addresses before the Club on Saturday evening
last, by Mr. E. H. YOUNGBLOOD and JosEPH
ABNEy, Esq'r., were chaste and beautiful. Having
been prevented from hearing them, we earnestly
hope ire will be allowed the pleasure of seeing
them in print.

Messrs. HonA, Wisc & Co.. are preparing an
abundant stock for the season that is at hand.
They are still at their old and well-known stand
on Broad Street, Augusta, Ga.
Messrs. CLAYTON & KENNEKY, in the same line
of business, are filling up with their usual good
taste and judgment, just above the Augusta Hotel.
Mr. J. KAUPFER's store, in the same vicinity. is
now too well known to need commendation. le
promises, a larger, a better, a richer, and cheaper
stock than that of the last season.

To Cock the Egg Plant Fruit.
A most competent jutige of every thing go.
rends us two (if the finest specinens of this vege
table we have ever seen, and accompanies it with
this recipe for preparing the dish:
"First, peal oft the purple rind; then slice
crossways as when you fry sweet potatoes; then
soak 2 or 3 hours in salt and water; grate over it
several biscuits ; add black pepper to tnste; beat
up an egg and dip each slice in it; then sprinke
with bread crumbs; fry, and bring theta in hot."
That amst be good. Try It, ladies.

There is just as much President-making machin

A good possum dog, for which a dozen first rate
cats will be exchanged on easy terms. By th.

this is one of the winters we don't moan to lose

of Texas.. We like to see these bold moves upon
the chess-board of life. Baeked by energy antd

out of ten. In the present instance we think we
see in advance the marks of such success. Go on,

Somne Practical Thoughts.
The Charleston JLercury, the Columbiia Guar
<dian, et id omnne gec.an, find it impossible to swal
low some of Mr. BoyeE's practical, common sense
views of the Smith's true policy in the present
juncture. Especially do they fire up against the
suggestion that we should remain as quiet as pos
sible upon tho territorial'qnestion seeing that it is
just note an insite of no pratic7l erulte. They
struggle to believe, and to make their readers bo
lievo, that there is yet much territory in possession
that will be occupied as slave States unIess we are
excluded by Mr. DoUGLIs'S theory of popul-rsov
e'gnty. NoW, with gr,:at respect fur our cotempora
rice, we submit that Mr. BoYcE has better opportu
nities than they, of knowing the precise character
of these territories, the ctndition of their population,
t' eir naaptedness to agricultural purposes, &c.
A prominent menmnber of Congrcss. a close student
of the questiuns bfore the country, an active
enquirer after fiacts, it is to lie presumed that 31r.
Boyce has made himself perfectly certain of what
he says in regurd to the territories. H li hns had
in Washington meaps of informing himself, which
country Editors do not enjoy. By conversation
with men from every p'int, and Ly application to
sonrees of information which exist alone at the
F, jeral City. he has doubtless been cnabled to
fora a just estimate of the real importance of our
remaining territories. While th in the Mercury,
and its backers of Columbia, S. (. and of Albany,
.a., ad of other localities, declare that there is
yet much fine slave territory within our limits,
ir. i~oYcE tells us that there is not one foot of
such territory at present open to emigration; that
Utah and New Mexico. from their altitude, aridity
and other causes, are utterly unfit for any such
tillage as slave labor has thus far been em
ployed in with success; and that the regions of
country above them are little better than waste
frozen mountains where our slaves could scarcely
subsist. (Mr. Boyer says something to this effect,
-we do not quote his exact language.)0 Then as
to the Indian Territory on which the Mercury lays
so tmuch stress, how is the matter likely to stand ?
The Mercury supposes that under DoroLAs's
theory it will certainly be lost to the South. It
takes for granted that the South will not have the
4-firit to occupy that opening, when arrangements
.6all be made with the Indians to effect it; and
yet it believes that the superior spunk and energy
of Northern emigrants will come and grasp the
rize. It hias lookod on the map, and sees that
he productive nod habitable part of the Indian
Territory lies broadside with Arkansas,-is below
,he latitude of Missouri, touching the Southern
boundary of that State with its north eastern cor
ner; that it also adjoins some of the most spirited
:,unties of Texas on the South.-counties where
- ivery already largely prevails, and where there
exists as strong a Southern tone, as can be found
ally where in our section of the Union,-counties,
, short, where the counsels of such men as Lorts
[ntgz9vA.T WIoFAL. carry the day;-the Meren
ry is awaro of these circumstances, and also of the
further fact that slavery already exiiss aimong the
Indians in the Territory, that it bss proven a suc
cess among them, and is already considered an
institution of the Territory. Yet the Mercury,
'with all this in view, predicts that DorCGLAOs tho.a
rv will make it a free State. Alas, por Hercules!
how low art thou fallen, that men should think
hus meanly of you. Missouri on the North West,
Arkansas on the West, and Texas on the South.
with slavery.ulready existant and flourishing in
dhe Territory to be occupied,-yet all of them,
41 of the South, senred by DOUT.LA'S theo
ey, aro to fall back in dismay, aind give np
the lan-1 to the Abolitionists of Connecticut, Ver
tatont A Co. So thinks the Xcreury. But Mr.
toYeE announces the rationaal convIction, haseal
upon facts anal probabailities, that the Indian Ter
iary will be ours. IHere we have two cuntrarienat
opiions,-a'ae a mere surmise growing out of a
too great feaur of Senator DontaLAs's theory,-the
other a conclusion sustainecd by indisputable facts
and out-standing cireumstances. It Is unnecessa.
y to ask the reader which opinion he will adopt.
ifhere can be no hesitation on the point.
Of course the Xefrcaryi anal its zfriend.- will ntu
give upa that they are wrolng; for they see things
in a convincing though a very desperate light.
Besides, this Indian Territory is now'the only
substantial food upon which to keep alive the ter
ritorial issue which they holad so per.-istently for
ward. But the intelligent readers of the South
are not to be so far alarmed otut oif their p~ropriety
by the Xe:craB's eloquent portrayals of Southern
ruin, as to yield their asser t to that piatriotie paper'
when claiming the Indian Territory (prospective
ay) a' an illustration of Southern imbecility and
Northern energy. As to any "other territory"
that is to be lost uder the Dora(..is theory, and
o which some hatve alluded so indefinitely,-we
wonl5 ask what is it, and where is it ? If Cubna
or Mexico, be mcaut by it, surely every sen~sible
man at the South will agree with Mr. Diomr, thai
at the former ever comes into the U'aion. she must
come as a slaveo commtuity, nic ~h she nosw i.,
iad other t'nan which she will never h~e Si bang ais
her torrid temperaturo anal her troieuil piradue
tans remain as they are. Neither will therre he
f.und nmany to differ with our repires~atative when
h'elhimst, in conformity with the policy of our
mented CA1,toUN, that Mexico should neverbe
ome am part of this confederacy.1
It aippears then that the .1/rr, amnd the others'
have now no practical argument for presaing upon
1he Democratic party the immedliate cansideration
f the que'stiion of slavery ini cnc-tian with the
t.:rritories. And it is altaugethier pariabile that
there will never again Parise a neessi'y fori testiaag

so. It is atnnunced after the Saiuth tias gait all,
sr nearly aill, of the territory far which ohe hut, or
expects to have aty use. 'The an:.e:;:itiona af
exas (eft'ected in no sall degree by the paowe~r
rl aid of Docat..ts himself) bruought us territory
nough for ouar wants. Dr. LEE, an emainentlv
practical man, said the oither day at the llechi
-luad discussion, that the Sooth haildcc aen -

-per.c. Hie made it an urgent. nt for wanting mnore
\faitas. Hec thoaught the South with her paresent
tlaaves could not de.velope her territorial resaurces.
So far so good. Now it is certain that nao State at
the South will import Africans aigin. It t'terefaore
.llws fromt Dr. Lmta's positioni (and maniay agree
wiah him) thiat the .ouath has enaougha territory for
-e wa.t. oif her ieailutiona anal air the hetalthaful
ariationt of her best interests.
But admit that there is yet mchl territo~ry suited
to African Mayetry within our boruders,-wes would
suggest this eiaquir'y; Hlow tare we to be injured
by the DoriGLas theory? rpngaerstand us,--wo
disset froam the theory ina tuto--but bow are we
to le ijuredl by it? If a territory lie niildapted to
white lbor and nxot to lauck. of course the work
ing of the the~ory will conform to what we tallaid..
mit,-let tyhite labor take it. If the territory, on
the other hand, be adapted to black labior nnd not
to white, the theory still wiarks out a Fest:ll which
e Norn.-Since the above wais writltn, we have
tought best te look upl our caopy of Mr. 1i's speech
anl give his exact language on this hoint. Mark
its conltsivaeesson the matter in handa:
As regards thu Territorial question,. I think it
is at this tina:e a speculative queastion,. bcause tihe
Terr.iories ot' the Unite I $:at -si ope:: ta Cat let
iae ipoiiale~5i tao shivery. The onaly TJer'ritories
now left tire Neiruaskia, Washinagton, Utah iand
N ew Mexico. I omit Ennaas, as shte is in ana
anamalous condlition, anid the aquestion is piracti
oally disposed uf theore. As regaods Nebtras
anal Washington Territories, their reman'ienaes,
barrenness and intense cotld retmove theta fromaa
considration. As regiards Utah anad New Mexico,
a vast region of great altitude, complosedl of hair
run mountains and arid platins, where prouaction
is impossible exeplt by irrignatiion, thecre is nomt the
slightest probability of the inttroduction of slave
r'. it is eviadent that no amount of legislation
ain carry it intio those Territories. The 'itly
Territory adapted to slavery is the counatry West
of Arkansas, guaranateeud by treaty to the Creeks,
Cherokees anui Uhoctaiws. Slavery exiists as a
ital istitution among these interestig tribes.
t is to slaa'ery they owe their wonaderfaul advance
in civilizat iota. We are botund-by treaties to leave
them undistathild itn thecir (awn governmenats, 'annd
nut to include thena in paew Territorial Govern
meats .er States. Perfect non-intervention is our
p li'y andl aduty as regiards them. Lt.t them alone
nt a ay'ery strengthens tamong them every aduv.
I. the tu~u-es of timec, apdl tihe ripeneass of the'ir
civii.a.n, .ney may seek aam':-ion as a State,
ad must - omo in necessarily as a slave State, .if
none of us will reject,-blaouk labor will occupy it.
But supposo tie territory be equally, adapted to
white labor and to black,-then comes the rub,
you will say. Under the Dotar.ts theory, white
labor and black commence on an equality and
contend on naequality until a territorial organi
zation is'granted by Congress. Say that this shall
take place when the territory numbers 10,000 in
habitants. Soon thereafter,. undor-the DorGLAS
theory, the question of slavery or no slavery may
como up before the territorial legislature. If
black labor lie then in a hellless minority, white
labor may liroceedl to secure the territory. If
white labor he in the minority, black labor will
secure it. Now we put these practical points : If
black labor ruceed up to the day of territorial
organhization, does it not uiin a State under the
Dout.As theory more easily LhaU without the
theory? Again, if white labor be predominant
up to that lay, is it tio be expected, u1ith the im
mense alvantages of surplts polaintion enjoyed
by the North, that black labor can ever again get
the upper hand ? And if not, what practical
difference is there bet ween restricting the institu
tion then, and banishing it afterwards when the
population reaches sixty or eighty thousand and
the territory becomes a S:ate? It has been said
that the effect of the theory is to discourage
Southern emigration. We think the effect rather
would he, to encourage it where slavery could be
made really profiltable,-in the Indian Territory
fir instance. Missouri, Arcacsas and Texas, with
the aid of the other Southern States, and with the
aid of the institution already established there,
could certainly retain the aseendency in that ter
ritory until (under the Douci.As theory) they
could establish the institution and guard it with
all-sufficient enactments. If they could not do it
at firt, surely there would be no chance of their
doing it afterwnrils. Hence, it would seem that
the Doto.AS theory should act as a very powerful
incentive in just such a case as the Indian Terri
tory.' The difficulty at the South is to supply a
sufficient numbor of emigrants,-pro-slavery emi
grant,-to controll the territory in its transition
to State Sovereignty. The DocLAs theory offers
the opportunity to decide the matter before that time
arrives. If the South is ever to acquire more ter
ritory, it would really se, , that here is presented
the readiest and mest effectual means of her doing
so. She has not much population to move in that
sort of an enterprize; but such as she has, could
with a little true zeal and spirit be moved quickly.
Will you say, she must have timeo? We answer,
she cannot get it. What she does, she must do
quickly. The North will not delay, and the South
therefore cannot delay if she would win. Dispatch
is the order of the age. The best time the South
can ask. is before the territory is organized. That
is the most leisure period she will find. After
that the territory springs into a State like Mlinerva.
from the brain of Jupiter. After that, if she i
not ahead of the North then, she may never hope
to be. But it is here again demurred that the
Douan..ts theory at least discourages Southern
emigration in all doubtful territory, that is, in all
territory where both white and slav" labor may be
profitable and where it is doubtful which will pre
vail. Admitted. But is that discouragement any
greater than the present recognized certainty, that
slavery may and can be abolished (but a little
while afterwards) when the territory enters upon
the functions of a State ? To heat the evil of dis
couragemnt.ynu must go back and demand that
no future Stote shall prohibit slavery. Short of
this remedy, there is butl)ittle practic:ll difference
between the theory of Judge lorr..LAS and the
territori-d system as understood by us of the South.
But, for one, we eschew the wrong even though
we think there is as much of gool as of evil to the
outh in its practical hearings. Yet, under all
the circumstauces, we etntnot consider the wrong
so met:i-trous ats to call doi~wn upon the bead of its
expounder either thc epithet of traitor or of dem
agogue. We cheerfully a'luw to Mr. Dlorotas,
until he shall shew himself the opposite by worse
promulgations than he has yet made, the credit of
acting as a piatriut in what he has done.

A feW Words to Woinen, as Maidens
Girls if you wish to marry, rit yourselves to be
come wives. When a imani tuarries it is feasible
to suppose that he expects to get a helpmate-a
partuer.in overy relation of lift'; one who will
rejoice*ith him in his proeperity anti hapiinere,
and sympathize with hin in sorrow ; a confideital
friend,--disiutercsteil, affcetionate, itud solicitous,
--who will dispel gloun nad cast a cheering in
Nuence throughout his dwelling. his other, holier,
and betler self. Blut in nii.c CUse it (if ten wiat
does lie get? Why little more thau a ioucy
spending Uachinc-a wall.ing advertisement fur
dry good-mnerchants and milliners-a dilution of
the list or aecomplishmieus taught at boarding
Schools. Is it any wonder then that muen are be
coming shy ot ma triiii-my nid look upon it as a
sort of swindle, in which :.ey ,eldon get even
the half of ihat they bargain for? Is it any
wonder that young men aire afraid to tie them
selves for life to girls who 1il. never he any thing
but an expense to them ? [s it any wonuder that
marriage is on the dectline. and old maids and ield
bachelors are more nunierous now than when our
grand parents were young.
I repeat it, girls, if you wisi and expect to mar
ry fit yourselves to become wives. Dent tura up
your notes at the idea of being useful, got the
broom and dusting brush. use them vigorously for
an hour or Itwo, step about briskly and Put things
in their proper laces. D., this every morning
it will make your eyes brighter, your checks more
rosy, your step iiore elastit, and is I"ar better ex
ereise thi lolling back i' it eirriige for i muorn
ing drive, or lingering listliesly over a pi:no.
Dont scorn the culinnry art, learn to make good
bread and cake, nice eustards and puddings; learn
to boil, bake and fry men , properly. It is not
vulgar to know how to cook, and it will save you
a world of vexation in after years. It matters
little what number of servants you keep, it is ne
eassary that you 'should learn how to do these
things in order that you should know when they
are properly done. Beside, you may have to teach
your servants in days to come, and how can you
possibly teach others that which you do not un
derstand yourselves ? Dont think that your edi
cation is finished when you lenve school. You
may consider yourselves very accomplished, sing
and play divinely, speak French like a native, nnd
dance like a Sylph. You may set n horse like
Dianna, and lride yourse.ves on your skill in
drawing and painting. All these things nye very
well, but men when they marry look for suie:.hing
beside accomplishmnilts. Snsiile men like prae
tical wives; and even men who are not sor.-iblc
enough to like practical wo:nen have to eat. You
cannot charm awaiy their appetite with a brilliant
ly executed piece of music, neither can you call
badly cooked dishes by French names, and by so
doing render them eatable.
- Practice sewing as you would any other branch
of edueation, learn to patch and darn ne-itly;
never allow yourselves to throw away garments
because there is a hole or two in them ; they .e
line things to practice mending on.
These things may appear :o be of little conse
quence, but they ought to be just as mitch a part
of every girl's education, as graiimer cr history.
It makes but little difference at whnt fashionable
College or Seminary you hare graduated, if you
do not know how to cook, wash and iron, make
and mend garments neatly, and above all keep a
hlonse in order, why you are not marriageable.
And, you litaies, who are married, .supposing
that you have vever haid the opportunity of learn..
ing to manage domestic allairs, einiioence thi<
branch of your edu'ation at once. Cousiler that
the obl ndu.ge " better hatte thiati never" will aill!y
admirably in youir ense. undI never desist until
ou becoine piro~fliient. You wrill lie likely to make
some failures at tirst, luit dlout let tat idiscoiceC
youi; try again aind keep trying iumtit you succeed
to your satisfactiion. If you have servanits to dil
the heavy work welt and good, that will nut pre
vent your beiing present. Yo~u will find that one
third will he saived by y'utr heinig there. for cven
the few serv-ants whio are niot realty dishonest iire
proverbilally enirelese ant waisteful. Every la-ly
should bie familhiar with tier kitchen, should ineas

ou will find that you lire umuch thu gatiner. I
cosidler it the iduty of ever.; wvife to study her

takes uplon herself these respon;sib.ilities. andi it is
neither right nor proiper that she shouldl shirk them

We :dluded last we-k to t case of poisioning
whieh had occurred in the North-eas tern see
tion of our District, under pecnliar and very
aggravating cireumstances. Amanda Massey
was taken suddenly ill on Thursday night and
died in a few iuoment. The body was it:terred
the next day: was taken up on Monday follow
ing and examined y a Coroner's .ury. The
jury rendered a verdict to the cifeet that the
deceased had died of poison. Suspicion
rested upotiol Dati. a slave of'the said Massey,
as having adninistere-l the poison. Dan
was arrested and brought to trial beflore a
magiistrate anrl freeholers on Friday follow
i'g. Xfter two days investigation, the jury
brought in a verdict of guilty and the negro
was senteneed to be hung on the first "!riday
in November next. le was convicted, we tin
derstand, entirely upon cireunstanti:d evi
dt:nce. hut so colilected -.1 Coll covincing were
the cireamstallces, that the jury did no:. ien.
tate .1s to their verdiet. The body was ex
:mined at the Coroner's Inquest by Dr. R. E.
Wylie, who detected the charac-r of the poi.
son that did the work of death. It was a
vegetable, and one that grows plentifuly in
the surrounding section. The circuistan
ces went to show that death was produe
ed in less than fifteen minutes from the time it
was taken into the stomach.
We stated last week what was suppo:Prl to
have been the prisonr's ,mi:ive. tar killing

motive, and also the fact of the previous in
