To the Memory of my Father.
"Who shall weep when the rivhteous die?
Who shall mourn when the good depart?
When the soul of the godly shall tee away
Who shall lay the loss to heart ?"
"Farewell-farewell, my Daughter
I shall never see thee more,"
Were the last words he uttered
As he led me to the door;
And while my heart seem'd breaking,
Drew me fondly to his breast,
And sealed his words prophetic
With a Father's parting kiss!
1lhis form was bent and feeble,
And his locks, all white and thin
But an eye of eagle brightness,
Told the depth of soul within;
While his features still were faultless,
Though eighty years had past,
Since his first faint infant wail
Was borno upon the blast.
Oh! I turned away in anguish,
I might not, dared not speak,
For I'd left a Sister lying
On her death-bed pale and weak;
And e'en my sobs I stifled,
Lest tiey should reach her car,
Whose case I knew ws hopeless,
. Yet had nerved myself to cheer.
Soon her spirit joind the angel.
Shortly too, was Mother's called;
And he, bereft, yet uncomplaining,
Still with decaying nature toiled;
Waiting patiently (he wrote me)
" Till the last great change should come,
Which would end all grief and suffering
And waft him to his Heav'nly home !
Anxiously for Spring I tarried,
Hoping to see him oneo aigain;
And linger near his lonely bed-side
The little while he might remain

Proclaim'd him in his cof~n, laG.- -

Important Sale of Negroes.
Look again at the advertisement of the sale of

lot that has ever been offered in this market, em
bracing, as it does, a variety to suit every taste,
and all likely, hearty and sound. They are no
groes who have never known any but the best
treatment, and, as a consequence, they will hold
their own where half-raised negroes will come up
missing. Watch this chance. You may never have

ty of inspecting the Instruments, They are the
most beautiful specimens of workmanship we ever
saw, being tastefully inlaid with pearl, ahtd rnar.y
of them with keys of the same mnaterial. Of the
tone of the Pianos-the most essential part-we
can speak in unqualified terms of apprubatiun. It
is fell, deep, mellow-of great power and volume,
when required-or soft and sweet as the tones of
a flute. They seem to us to possess tl-e requesites
for giving proper expression to any piece oft uusic
-grave or gay, spirited or subdued. 'I hase wish

The following note by Mr. WN;.GG to the
Charleston Courier will explain itself
KALVIA, Nov. 15, -09.
To the Editors of the Charleston Courier.
I have written to ask the publication in your
paper of the accompanying copy of a speech which
I lately delivered at Edgetield Court House, on the
Blue Ridge Rail Road.
I would not have asked this favor, but, for what
I must regard the disparaging comments of the
editor of the Edgefield Advertiscr (copied into
your paper,) who in the advocacy of a measure
which he especially favors, is unwilling to believe
that any opinion can be right but his.
I h-pe that the editor of the Adrertiser will do
me the ju.tice to publish the speech, and afford the
people of Edgelield District the opportunity.to
judge fir themselves of an argument which he has
treated so lightly.
I am, with great respect, yours, &c.
Now be it known, that before this note appeared
in the Courier, the speech in question was set up
from Ma. GnF.oG's own manuscript in the Adrer
tisrer office, and was ready for the press. And yet
MR. Gntae must needs indulge the Courier's rea
ders with an inuendo aimed at our (assumed) tar
diness to do him justice.
Again, our comments were disparaging, says
MR.-GREaG. * The only language in our editorial
notice of the saleday meeting which could be so
construed, was where re remarked incidentally
that JUDGE FRosT's plain truths and Ma. Taux
HOLS's eloquence were "too much for his (MR. G's)
potato-patch practicalities," having reference to a
certain illustration he bad employed. Now, there
stands his said potato-patch practicality in print.
Look and road it. See it in its full development.
Mark its outspread points, revised and corrected
by the author. And tell us, is there so much of
might in it's structure, that we should be censured
for saying that truth and reason and facts had
prevailed against it? Why, look ye! if the illus
tration proves one thing more than another, it is
that neither Ma. GiOEGG nor his friend from
Charleston knew any thing whatever about the
culture of potatoes. Talk of the practical, forsooth!
Mn. GREGG's turn-out was "so small that when
the gathering was finished he asked the hands if
they would take the pile of potatoes in payment of
their wages for digging, and they refused to do it."
And yet, because Ma. GuE (and a gentleman
from Charleston) were such out-and-out greenies
in potato-culturo, ergo, the Blue Ridge Railroad
is'to be attended by as complete a failure. It will
take a plain man, unversed in the logic of the
schools, some time to make out that argument.
There is a sort of transcendentalism about it which
we have striven in vain to compass.
But we were further of opinion that other no
tions of Mat. GREa resembled this potato-patch
idea, and hence our plural phrase, "potato-patch
practicalities," intended to designate that entire
family of practicalities which amount to little or
nothing when analysed in time's unerring cruci
ble. Of this complexion, was the practicality put
forth by MR. GRGo some years -ago, that Plank
Roads would soon supersede Railroads in many
localities, and, especially, that a Plank Road
alongside the South Carolina Railroad, from Ham
burg to Charleston, would not only be a self-sus
taining investment but a profitable one. So like
wise was a prophetic practicality we have heard
attributed.to this gentleman when cotton was at
6 or 7 cents, i. e., that it never would rise again.
So also the project of draining some swamps in
two or three parishes of the low-country instead of
prosecuting that truly great work, the Blue Ridge
Railroad. So, too, the policy of keeping outsido
bacon high, to force the cotton-planter to raise
his own hog', having no care for that large class
of our population who can neither raise cotton nor
hog. All these we have designated for conveni
ence sake, as above; and in doing so we have
meant no more disparagement than they merited.
But a row words to the speech in hand. We num
ber .the potnts we make.
1. Mat. Gneco, it appears, does not deny that
the Bank of the State will be able to meet the in
*noss the State may inaur by the prosecution
a road. Where then is the scare-crow of
me fact of our fathers having wasted, us the
e tp y~ t'li m Adslntapproxlma.
. at the lui1tidge Road will be a work of
siunar uselcssness,--no more than MR. Gnzuo's
ignorance of the potato culture pruves it.
3. Ma. Gareco's assertion that "State capital
will alone he relied on" is a sheer eurmaise,-guess
4. If the fact be (as the speaker says) that the
Nashville & Chatamnooga Rouad injured Charleston,
it doecs unot show that the Blue Ridge Road will dat
so. But we doubt the neeuracy of the statement
5i. The suggestion that the question be tested at
the ballot-boux is a good one.
6. No State, says the speaker, can manage a
railroad; and yet, in thme same breath, ho is obliged
to amit that Gecorgia is now doing so with emi
nent ruccess. Are South Carolinians less reliable
or less skilful in monetary matters thtan Georgi
7. Thme fling aet South Carolina Railroad stock is
strange and unacountale, when it is so well
known that this road declares continually the tmmost
respectable dlividends, andl that its stock ramnks as
high in the market as any railroad in the Union,
with perhaps one or two exceptions.
S. The argument based on the difficulty of get
ting justice raemay fro,na homae, is truly a specinme-n
of the anmall potato. Is it not maoreover a delicate
comlimnent to our sister southern coummunities in
this age of law and libierty andi justice ?
9. Mar. GnEGG, an avowed opponent of the Blue
Ridge Rtoad, admits that "it aight postsibaly bring
bacon to one-half of Edgefield District ten cents
a hundIred ehenpr,"-a very laow allowance of
course. But take even thaat, anmd what does it
shomw ? That the nama who buys five hundred lbs.
of bae-m a year will get hack 5n cents of his year's
t:mxes ;-thmat the man who buys five thousand lbs.
will get back five d-dlar,, and su on,-nearly conm
ter-balancing the increase of taxation elsewhere
given by our spenker. Remenber, this is at Mr.
t's own estimate of the gamin to amcruc. Every
one will perceive thaut he puts it far below the
10. The suggestions about the trade and travel
of the Blue Ridge Road were tall urged against the
S-uth Carmlina road ini its incipiency. There were
then, as there are now, oldl fogies hanginag on the
wheels of ptrogress anad endtev-oring to stop the
world's advance in civilizati-n. Thirty years
henmc, these opaponents of the Blue Ridlge enter
prize will be seen ip time saype ludicrous light, as
those are, now, whmo predicted that the South Caro
lina Road was a monstrons absurdity which never
could, by any possibility, sustafs itself.
11. Mn. Gnc is already pledged to subscribe
tenm thousand dolhears to a railroad in this district.
Are we :nistakes is suapposinmg, that this subscrip
titan is prominsed to the projertod Hagiburg & Co
lumbia Raoad providled it runs lay Granitevillo?
Anal if it dIe-~nan by Granuiteville, of what value
will it be to thte district at large ?
12. The spo:mker talks of building this road for
Chaarla-tmn, as if the whole State was not to be
honetitted lby its comupletioan. Such one sided po
sitiaons will be duly apreciated by an intelligent
13. One gitore poinat. Maja-r Gwvss, says Mr.
Gnaca, "uwould be his (Mr. (l's) first choice if he
were gaing to build ma ralronad." Of course hs~ re
garda bite as altogether reliable. Yet, Imnmedimate
ly-, Mr. (lna turns aroundl and says that Mr.
G wys's estiamates of thae cost of thme Blue Ridgo'
Roaa arc entirely tmao low. Now, which of thme
twoa are we to credit,-Mr. Gtwvss, who is consiad
ered lay the speaker bimnaelf as omne of thme best ena
gimneers in the Unitedi States, anid whmo knows all
about this road ? or Mr. Gnco, who sits down at
Kaliniae anad contradicts thme enginecer, without hav
ing the slightest personal knowledge of the mat
ter in banal?
With thesme brief objections, we present thme
speech of Mr. GmP.GG to the public, asking for
him a fair and impartial hearing. The circum
stance of the speaker having once (and rathmer re
ently too) declmaredl that a Rail Ronda from Char
leton to the Inaterior wonuld result in great'good
to the State, if begun at this end, viz: at Char
leston or at Beaufort,-this circumstance, we say,
may possibly be regarded b'y some as slightly
militating against his present wholesale denial of
ay benefit .likely to accrue fromt the Blue.Ridge
"4Iench and Bar of. South Carolina.
-' ige O'NEALL's new work, thus disignated, is
,est out. Criticisms upon its merits and peculiari
ties are already promulged in several quarters.
The Evening Ners objects to several features, but
fells deeply grateful to the author for undertaking
a work so laborious and difficult of exechtion.
The Jercurhil Autocrat has not yet spoken. We
await his decree with interest. In the nean tiem,
we commend the book to the reading pC'slic as one
well worthy of a prominent place in every. South
Carolinian's library. It is a valuable record of
the lives of citizens who enstamped their names
upon the earlier progress of our State, legally and
politically, socially and morally. Doubtless, there
are many greater men now, than were some of
thote old style, homespun worthies. But whtfier
or not these modern great onescould have filled
the peculiar parts of those pioneers in Carolina
development, is.quite a different consideration.
This work of Judge O'NZALL will command
the approbation of the State, not only beceuse of
its truthfulness and noble purposo, but because of
its intrinsic interest, bringing out (as it does)
many isolated facts in regard to each particular
section of the State which every one will be
pleased to see rescued from oblivion. As a single
Instance of this characteristic of the work, we
quote a passage from the memoir of RoBnZr
STARX, State Solicitor. It gives a striking Inci.
dent pertaining to an individual not otherwise
connected with the book. Call it digressive if
you will, it is still a fact of interest; and a volume
of such digressions would be appreciated by all
who wish to preserve the whole history of our
State. We quote from the sketch of ROBEnT
STARK, Page 66, vol. 2:
"At the age of sixteen, he entered the service.
of his country, as a soldier, and was in the battles
of "Blackstocks," "Cowpens," and "Eutaw
Springs." At the battle of Eutaw, he belonged to
a company commanded, as I understood him to
say, by Captain Richard Johnson, of Edgefield
District. I see he is called Lieut. Johnson, in a
correspondence between Judge William Johnston
and Col. Hammond. In a charge made by that
company, they drove the artillerists from the gun,
before the Brick House. Captain Johnson leaped
off his horse, and took from his pocket a twenty
penny nail, and, placing it in the touch-hole, with
the hilt of his heavy dragoon sabre, drove It as
far as he could, saying, as he did so, " you have
plagued us all day, and you shall do so no more."
Mr. Stark told me, that Capt. Johnson, when h
entered upon that battle, was dressed with a white
vest and pantaloons; and, when he left it, he was
covered with blood from his breast to his boots."
Below we coppy a complimentary notice of
Edgefield by Prof. STVCRATR, of Dz Bow's RE
VIEw. "Present company oxcepted," it is all just,
as it should be, and we thank the P1nofEsson for
kindly adverting to old Edgefield. There now,

To J. D. B. DE Bow, Esq. :-Edgefield District
was settled principally and, indeed almost alto
gether, by emigrants from Virginia and North
Carolina, while most of the upper Districts or
South Carolina was first colonized by foreigners.
This fact may have something to do with the
leading characteristic of the people, which is ree
less bravery. The popular historian Weems wrote
much of Edgefield, and styled it the "ifghting"
Ditrict of South Curolina.
The celebrated family of Martin, embracing
seven brothers and two sisters, who figured so
nobly in the revolutionary warfare of South Care
lin, were natives of this District. Many of their
descendants still reside here.
The female part of this Martin family evinced
the same heroic feeling of attachbeent to their
country and courage in its defene, as theirdaring,
patriotic brothers and husband'. An evidence of
it is as follows:

pitalities for the night, which was granted them.
They departed next morning for Charleston, with

Yet " coaruge" is not the only admirabele trait
of this people. They arc br'spitale, indunstrious,

Blue Ridge Resolutions.
At a meeting held at Edgefield Court House on
the 7th instant, the following resolutions were of
fered by Col. AnTun SINxINs: -
"Resolved, That we cordially approve of the
Blue Ridge Railroad Enterprise, and support the
policy of granting such aid by the State as may
o essential to its completion."
"Resolved, That we earnestly recommend to
our Senator and Members of the Legislature, to
.give their hearty support to this measure, and
to vote for the necessary pecuniary aid."
The mover of the resolutions stated that in pre
senting them he acted as the organ of many gen
tlemen interested in this groat work; that it was
designed to take the deliberate sense of this mee
ting upon them; that previous to calling for the
vote, discussion, pro and con, was earnestly invi
ted: that the President of the Road, Judge FaosT,
and a prominent Director, Mr. GEo. W. Tnx
uox, were in attendance by special request; that
the people of Edgefield wanted light and truth,
not vain assumptions, on this important question;
that all would say, they could not ask this kind of

The discussion was a long, able and interesting
one. At a late hour in the afternoon,'and when
the meeting was considerably 'diminished in num.
bers, the question was called for, and the vote ta
ken, when the Resolutions were adopted by an
overwhelming majority. That the same result
would have happened at an earlier hour of the
day, and with fuller numbers, the choir could set
no reason to doubt.
The meeting adjourned harmoniously, havi
proceeded throughout with due regard to propriety

tion in reference to the next Presidency:
" It is clear that jir. Buchanan, is ini the
field for re-election. Thme programme is a
very simple one. H~e expects to unite the
South at the Charleston Convention, after a
contest between others, and, with the aid of
Northern votes, to secure a nomination; tl:en
by the aid of a united Souithern vote at the
Novembler contest in 1860, he looks forward
to the Electoral Colleges of Oregoun, Calhifor

r to leave the decision of it to Pennsylvania.
When that contingency arises "immay we be

r HE undersigned has in store a cargo of 100
Stons of GUANO, from an Island just dis
oered, :md from which no Guano has ever been
mprted until this season, and he is desirous that
11 Farmters should give it a fair und impartial
rial, and report results.
This Msnure is found in caves 200 feet above
he sea, consequently is free from sand and coral,
ich in Ptzosphatcs, and containing sufficient Am
nonia to ;:ive qjuick growth to any plant.
The analysis, by one of the host chemists in
his country, is as follows: 81 85 100 per cent of
one Phosphate of Lime, less than 1 per cent. of
and, with 17 to 18 per cent of Sulphuric Acid,
nd no Carbonate of Lime. It is dry, finely pul
erized, free from lumps, and contains enough
tmmonia to stimulate the plant without any ad
ixture of other Manures. It is not a Mineral
lno, like the Sombrero or Navassa, but the
sre excrement of birds, and all the Phosphoric
eid it contains, is in combination with Lime.
