WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1859.
The next meeting of the Edgefield Literary club
will bo held Thursday evening, 1st December,
on which occasion addresse will be delivered by
Wx. J. READY, Esq'r.
For the best New Year's Address, not to exceed
forty lines, we offer, in behalf of our PETERn, one
copy of the Adrcrtier for the year 1860.
Our next door neighbor is just now receiving
good things of various kinds in the line of family
groceries. He will have more coming regularly,
besides sundry articles for Christmas purposes. It
is pleasant to have such an assortment so convo
nient to our doors, if for nothing else than to drop
in and look at occasionally. The word is, "Christ
mas is coming, call at Golding's."
This valuable hotel-stand is for sale. In many
respects it is the best situation in town. Whoever
buys It, will have a chanee to do well. It has
paid, and always will pay. We hope some one
will take it who will not let it fall below its pres
ent reputation. It has a fino run of custom,
which can be increased still more. Watch the
Mn. T. J. WRiTAKEn proffers to run a hack be
tween this place and the city of Newberry, provi
ded the people will make good that bad piece of
road between Bia CREEK ansi MRS. ABNEY's.
This is a generous proposal, and we hope it will
be acted upon. The rival powers need a convey
ance of this sort for reciprocity purposes. Other
wise, how can they ever hope to re-enact The
Field of the Cloth of Gold?
Our Brass Band.
Some young gentlemen of our village have
formed a brass band and are progressing finely.
We are glad to 'eo that they have taken hold of
the thing with a determination to 'do it up right.'
The material is good,-capital. Their intention
is to accommodate the community, yratis, on all
such occasions as fairi, pie-nies, hot suppers, cele
brations &c. All they will ask in return, will bp
some aid from the citizens in procuring really
good instruments. This applica tion will shortly
be made, and we trust it will ueet a liberal recog
nition from all u ho are interested in giving life
and spirit to such social meetings as those above
indicated. We feel contident that the spirited
members of the band will do justice to every such
contribution by rapid progress in musical skill.
To them we would say, be not content with any
thing short o'f excellence.
That the sale of Dr. E. ILaND is changed to
the 16th Dec., instead of the date heretofore ad
Attention is invited to the notice of a Dancing
Soiree to be given at Masonic & Odd Follows' Hall,
by Mr. and Mrs. HAL.. The Second Class of Mr.

The clothing house of J. M. NEwSY, Augusta,
Ga., is by far the most tastefully arranged estab
lishment we have seen South. His goods correr
pond to the superb style of his establishment ;
and his peculiar manner of selling them is a little
ahead of any thing we can at present call to mind.
But the great body of our readers knew J. M.
Nawav of old. Go and ese him at his new and br:l
Latest From E'urope.
Cotton declined nearly one .third of a penny.
Flour, steady demand. Sugar, quiet. Coffee, dull.
The Old "United States."
We had the pleasure of stopping in Augusta the
other day at the old United States Hotel, now in~
charge of Messrs. Mosumn & DoBY,--Mr. JouN
Dozr, of Edgefield. The new arrangements are
admirable, and the hotel is kept in uncommonly
good style. The table is especially good ;-how
could it be Otherwise when Mr. TaoMAs BIAKRa
(well known thromghout the South and especially
in South Carolin.' n. " Uncle Tomn") directs the
cuisine and presides in the dining room. That
corn beef, and that wild duck, to say nothing of
the superbly dressed possum, told us, plainer than
words, that Unece Tom, hzad'not lest one whit of
his old and varied accomplishments. Sucess to
the old United States !
The Best- S tables..
In visiting Augusta, look up the stables of our
old friond, LAWnENCE J. MmIis, immediately in rear
of the United States Hotel.'- Your horses will
there receive complete attendlance in every par
'ticular. It is indeed an A No. I. establishment.
But every one knows that L. J. M. will keep that
kind of stables or none at all. A lot of magnifi
eent horses on display there too, at this present
writing. Go and see.
Report of the President and Directors
of the Blue Ridge Rail Road Co.
This report is a most satisfactory document.
We hope to lay it before our readers in exrtenso
next week. In the mean time we extract a few
1. The work has been groatly restricted by the
refusal of the Legislature last winter to grant
further aid. Still, somne important jobs have been
carried on so that the bulk of the Road may ho
fmished simultaneously should the requisite help
2. In spite of this rcstrict ion, 414 per cent of the
grading, of thec ,rholc Road has -been done, and 50
per cent of the anwoury.
3. Of that part of the Road which lies in South
Carolina, more than S1 per cent g/f the grading,
moore than 60 per cent of the. Bridge .3usonry,
end noa.rly 70 per cnt of the Tunnel heading,
have been completed.
4. Thirteen miles of the Road have been finished
from Anderson to Pendloton.
5. So far as the work has gone it is toithin the
estimates of Mr. Gwvss, Chief Engineer.
0. The construction of the Road must be wholly
abandoned after next month, unless the State
grants aid to the company.
And what a termination, what a wheeling about
and marching back agains would this be, for the
proud and wealthy State of South Carclina ! What.
an instaneo of puttiog the shoulder e~o the wheel
and flinching from the strain! Why, all the world
will sweep by us and mock at our imbecility. A
great Road, more than one third done, with mil
lions judiciously expended up~on it, to be thrown
away, just as we are nearly ready to realize the
beginning of its fruition ! By all that we hold
dear, by our fair fame and honorable ambi
tion, by every motive of State pride and common
sense, let it never be said of us.
Remsen's Hat Hall.
In a very neat establishment below the old Ea
gle A Phenix Hotel, Augusta, Ga., may be found
as choice. a lot of hats, caps, gloves, &c., as any
one need- wiih to see. Mr. Rtsxar.'s articles are
select and good, and he can accomnodate a custo
mer with any style from the most fancy to the
most substantial. A gentleman of our acquain
tance, for instance, wanted to get a well..made;
decnt cassimer hat with a comfortable brim, Hie
tried here, he tried there, and ho tried all around
to find it, but failed to do so until chance directed
his steps to Remsen's Hat Hall, and there he found
the wery hat, and not only that, hut also saw a
capital stock of all goods in his line. De sure to
call at Remsen's. It's a nice place.
37THZ news from Texas is still exciting.
The Legislature ha. ordered out troops to arrest
Cortenas and his band. Capt. Ford is to command.
The reports from Brownsville caused intense ex
eitement throughout Texas. Capt. Ford started
fr the Rio 1]andeon the 18th .inst.
Mr. Gregg's Letter.
The editor of the .ielverrier cheerfully accepts
Mr. G IcGG% explanatory remarks at the outset of
his letter, and finds pleasure in exempting him
from all unfairness either in act or intention.
Of course our remark in reference to Mr. G's
subteription of ten thousand dollars- to a curtain
railroad on certain conditions was conjectural.
We so distinctly expressed it. We supposed it
might be as we said; from having heard that Mr.
0. was (a year or two ago) a very warm advocate
oa a road from Hlamburg to Columbia by the lower
route as contradistinguished from the Ridge route.
But this has nothing to do with the Blue Ridge
Mr. G's noxt point touches upon new matter,
the Port Royal road,-and very interesting matter
withal. But neither has this any thing to do with
the Blue Ridge question..
So of the Plank Road paragraph. It may not
be very wide of the mark. But it has nothing to
do with the Blue Ridge question.
So too of Mr. GREGG's prediction about the
price of cotten. Although he gets around in the
queerest manner imaginable, yet what upon earth
has it to do with the Blue Ridge question ?
And, finally, of the drainage df- swamp lands
by the State,- yes, this has a little to do with
the Blue Ridge question. It sanctions the prln.
ciple of State Aid for purposes of material devol
opmont. But it goes to a dangerous extreme.
The Blue Ridge Road will benefit the whole State,
or as nearly so as any onterprize of the kind. It
will pour the traffic of the Great Interior into
South Carolina at a point where it can be distri
buted to every portion of the State. All will feel
its benign influenceos, if in no other way than
through the facilities afforded to Charleston on
terprise; for it is well known to every man, that
increased facilities for our cities are beneficial to
all the trade which concentrates in them. But
other than this, the benefits of the Blue Ridge
Road will go in the tangible shape of bread and
meat to every district in the State. For this kind
of public improvement, there is reason in asking
a departure from the doubtful policy of State Aid
to local enterprize,-somewhat the same reason as
Mr. CALHOUN thought would justify a departure
from a Axed policy in favor of improving the
Mississippi river,-tie reason of general if not
universal benefit. But here we have this idea of
State Aid carried to the extreme of directly in
creasing the private wealth of comparatively few
individuals at the public expUhso. We suppose
that all theso swampsahav' boen.'h'eld by known
owners since the days of the Royal Grants. The
heirs or assignees of those owners,. or their suc
cessors, still have valid rights to ucu. Now the
State, as we understand Mr. Gunran, is to help
these individuals convert lands worth f-fty cents
per acre into lands to l: worth serenty-flre dollars
per acre. The State is to lend these persons mon
ey it a very low rate of itereet and to furnish
cnginere, taking a mortgage of the premises. If
the land proves a failure, the Government loses
all. If the land is good, the individual (and no
one else)- gts a tract of fifteen hundred acres
(original cost $750) now worth, clear of mortgage,
Amic erEaent-firc thousland dollar'. Good stars!
what a business! And who would prolit by it?
Two.lasses of individuals, viz: Rich proprietors
and speculators; because the poor proprietors, in
most instances, would yield to the much vanted
cash-in-hand, say $2 or $3 per ae which the
speculators would offer. Hero then is Stato.Aid
to inake rich proprietors lords-und land-specula
tors princos,-State Aid to operate in a fow locali
ties for the benefit of a few. With the samb plau
.ibility, the same advantages could be demanded
by the owners of poor land all ocer the State, to
make their soil permanently fertile by iipplicatiun
of lime and salt. And this lesson is recommended
as coming from England, forgetful of the fact that
the English Government has to offer preiniums of
this sort to aid in the actual subs:steneo of her
dense population, and of the furthcr fact that it
may be a thousand years before South Carolina
will be reduced to any such necessity. So Mr.
GEGG is an advocate of this scheme, and yet
refuses ,to allow the good .Stato to help a work
whro etvery body will feel' k portion of the goods

Music and Pianos.
Mr. C. CA'rri is the agent for the celebrated

you go to Augusta in search of music, musical in
struments, and inusical a[ppurtenancos generally.
You will be sure to find the best articles and the

Growth of St. Louis.
This central Western city has had an almost
nexampled growth in the last decade. We findl
in a late number of the Missouri Republican (the
largest daily in the United States) a very full sta
tistical account of the buildings erceted in St.
Louis during the past year, from which the fol
lowing pro-di-yi-ons result appears: The numn
ar of such buildings reaches Two TriocstAiD rivE
uiuNDED AND. ronTY Two; and the money ex
eded on their construction amounts to the sum
of savEN' SILLloss, SIXTv-FOUR THOUSAND), FIVE
rt'NRo ED A TV(RLvE DOLLAuIS. It is confident
ly assrted that the population of the city, which
was 77,S60 in 1850, must now be at least 180,000.

The Strange. Meteor.
There have been accounts of a strangn meteor
darting acrc's the heavens .by daylight of late.
It was seen in New York, in Washington, and
elsewhere, and is describedas a striking and
beautiful phenomeonon. liefore seeing the aic
counts of it, the following briof pmg between
two servants in. our back-yard was neidenta.lly

The South Carolina Legislature assembled day
bordre yesterday, to provide for the well-being of
the State and for other purpo'see. The Session, it
is anticipated, will be one of considerable interest.
Among the more important matters to come up
for discussion, the question of further aid to the'
Blue Ridge. Railroad will occupy no small space.
It is indeed a question which our legislators should
examine in every aspect with especial pains-taking.
Divesting themselves of all manner of prejudice or
pique, and ri.ing above more pride of opinion,
they should come anew to the work of discussion
and investigation, nnd regulate their fon! deci
sion by the facts and probabilities of the case as
they now appenr And we doubt not that such
will be the patrioti* and conscientious course of
every member of our present Legislature. Thin
decision will, in the estimation of many, mark an
era in the progress of South Carolina. The ra
ponsibility it involves, is of that enlarged and
general character which will (favorably or unfa.
vorably) affect the sagacity and reputation of eve
ry man who votes upon it, and that too for ages to
come. The record, whether pro or con, will be a
marked chapter in our Legislative Annals; And
our great-grand-ehildren will know and remember,
either with bitterness or with pride, the name of
every man concerned in its final making-up. In
the vote of last Session, the 3dgefield delegation
was divided. It is hopefully expected that they
will this winter present a united front in favor of
the measure of aid. 'I ,re is no room to doubt
that Edgefield District earnestly desires them to
occupy this position. It is for thom to say whether
this desire can be gratified. No purpose to die
tate a course to our members has been manifested
or entertained. If it had been felt, their well
knoiwn intelligence and firmness would have re
sisted the force and the propriety of any such at.
tempt. And yet, what the large body of a repre.
sentative's constituency feel, is a matter which he
cannot disregard in justice to himself and to the
interestshohasin chargo. What will bethe course
of our delegation, what will be the fate of the
measure, are points we may soon see determined.
May that determination be accordant with the
high principles of progress that are sweeping over
all barriers, and making the Atlantic States of
this Union the garden spot of modern civilization.
After the Blue Ridge Railroad. it may be that
Federal politics will occupy the tapbn with some
prominence. There is a rumor that fieroo roso
lutions are to be popped in from a certain quarter
in regard to the Harper's Ferry affair, &c. This
may not be amiss; although, as a gentleman of
excellent judgment remarked the other day in our
hearing, it would perhaps be as well to avoid all
high-sounding threats and lot Virginia quietly
hang the wretched miscreants, as she assuredly
will do and can do without the hzzas of her South.
The coming Presidential campaign, it is sup.
posed, will likewise afford subject-matter for oth
er resolutions. We take it, that the action of the
Alabamma and Mississippi Legislatures will be a
weited before the introduction of any such resolu
tiuns into our own Legislature. If those States do
nothing in the matter of Federal politics, it does
seem that South Carolina's better part would also
be. to remain quiet. If they think any expression
of sentiment or of policy injudicious at this par
ticular tiue, such expression by our Stato would
surely incur their disapprobation and as cortainly
injure the cause of Southern unity. But even
should those two States resolec and declare in ad
vance of the Campaign and the Charleston Con.
vention, it may well be doubted whether South
Carolina should not still redtcalmly upon her oars
and watch the counsels of Virginia, North Caro
lina, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and the rest. It
is a time for great caution on our part. As to be
ing ready for any rational measures in further
auen of Southern jights which our sister Slave.
states, or Cotton-states, mnay unite upon, the whole
country knows that South Carolinians are always
uiis opibsuecprcti,-no need of a syllable of
resulutions to make this clear. It stands there
upon our banner,-it is everywhere as palpable as
a "city set upon a hill." W~hat then are we to
resolve about ? Our principles ? They are now
identieally the same as they have been for years
past. We are all States Rights Democrats and
Southern Rights Democrats too; And the world
around knows this as well as they know the name
of our State. But it is urged that we must re
solec and declare, in Legislature assembled, against
the Douglas heresies and against a Douglas noco
ination at Charleston. But would this do our
Southern cause any good ? Surely not, if neither
Alabama no.r Mississippi set us the example. If
they so did, and South Carolina followed suit,
what then ? Neither G eorgia, etor Tuxas, nor Vir
ginia, nor Louisiana, are at all expected to go into
the Charleston Convention under any such shack
les. We are then but aiding Alabama and Mis
sissipipi (in the supposod ease, which is by no
means a p.rsbable one) to split the South into fac
tions and destroy her ability for good in the Pres
idential struggle. Next ecmes the election of a
Black Republican, inding thu South so divided as
toa he utterly nuwillineg to unite, even on that even t,
in withdrawing fronm the Union. Will it he said
that Alabamanc, Mississippi and South Carolina at
least can unite und withdraw? A most improba
ble thing.- Take Alabama for instance. If she
does paursuoe the cnurse we have hypot!'ecated, it
will lbu triumph of the YjAxcar Democrats over the
Femiver~ Demnocrats. We need los'k no fur
thser for the seeds of a strife thcat will parnlyse Al
abamta whene the issue of disunion, with all its nt
eertainties, is brought before the people.
Another view. In aiming atSenator Dotecr~as's
downf.dll, you may elet hinm to the Presidency,
tbus: Incensed by these hostile gunss att himself
fromn Democuratic bastteries, he may lbe compelled
by a untural resentmnent of injury to unfurl his own
heanner and fight at the head of his owne colutmn on
his o'wn accosunt. If lhe does, the election will
piro'bably go t., the fluse of Rupresentatives, satd
thsere Ihis chances will be its good as any man's.
There, ho will peerhapts be founed to Ite the only
man who can defeat the Black Reubtlicans. And
there, bluster as someg of us its 3ississippi, Alaba
mat and South Carolina ma~y,.lie ill be preferred
to a Black Republicanu if it comes to that issue.
Uneder the circumtstances thsen, would it nut be

For the Advertiser.
To the Editor of Edgefield Advertiser.
KALxIA, Nov. 23d., 1859.
DEAR Sin:-Allow me to correct some errors
that you have laboured under in your Editorial
remarks in reference to my speech at the sale-day
meeting on Monday 7th inst.
After receiving the letter from Dn. II. R. Coot,
Tnos.J. DAVIS, PAUr. F. HAxMo and Gaontca
B. MIr.Ls Esq'rs., I enclosed it with the manu
script to a friend in Edgefield, with the following
remarks, "I do not wish to obtrude my views on
the peo1ple of Edgeield District, and I sun not wil
ling to have the speecb publishod, unless it be at
the request of at l(el a dozen names of gentlemon,
citizens of the District." The package was mailed,
when oy attention was directed to the copy of
your Editorial in the Charleston Courier, upon
which I determined to have the sp)eech published
in that paper, and call upon you to give it a place
in your columns-not knowing that my letter
would be handed to you.
You are " mistaken in supposing " that the sub
sriptiotn if ten thousandl dollars, to which I allu
de'l in my speech, " is ptromised to the projected
Hamburg and Columbia road procided it runs by
For your information, I will add, that it was
the Port-royal Rail Road to which I referred. It
is designed to start at Hlamnburg or Augusta, pass
through Edgefield and Batrnwell Districts, and
join t'he Cbarleston atdSaa~a ]laulroatt at-She
kehatchie Bridge-thus making a continuous line
from Hamburg to Charleston, which will be four
miles shorter than the South Carolina road, and
also a shorter route to Savannah than by the
This road wilt also have a branch running in a
straight direction from Charleston towards Macon,
Georgia-to connect with the Central Railroad at
Millen. I did once offer to subscribe five thousand
dollars, and promised to double it, if the capital
could be raised to build a Railroad from Coluambia
to 1Ianbuary. But there was no such condition at
tached to that subscription, as that "it should
run by Uraniterille."
There was thten a strung probability that the
Columbia and Hamburg road would pass biy the
Pine House, and afford the village of Edlgefield,
what she so much desires, a Railroad convenience
to Augusta, Columbia antd Charleston. I enter
tain a confident hope that the Road will yet be
built, whenever tlie State of North Carolina shall
grant a Charter for a Railroad from Greensbo
rough in that State, to Danville, Virginia. It will
become the intterest of ninety-three utiles of Rail
road in North Carolina and of the Charlotte and
Columbia, as well as Anguita and the Georgia
Railrad, wrill no doubt grant liberal aid to a
Railroad-nearly an air line, from Augusta, Geor
gi, to Richmond Virginia-which will doubtles
become a thoroughfare for travel.
Thle Port-royal Railroad is one of the works
bound to attract public attention. I would no't be
atll alarmed if I were to subscribe four-times as
much as ten thousand dollars to that enterprise.
It will ho quite a different tnfair from the Blue
Ridge Railroad. We dont expect to call on the
Legislature t ' suhscribe and sell her bonds to pay
the subscriptions, andu tax p'ortions of thte State,
not. to be benetitted bsy the work, to raise the
means to pay interest, and finally the principal.
This enterprise will not lack for individual sub
scribers. It. it does, we will not try to build it.
Charleston capitalists, who are seekitng bonds for
investment, at low rates of interest, will be foud
lookittg after the stock of this new Western outlet
for Charleston trade.
The Central Georgia Railroad wrill feel an in
torest int it, in common with Macon and all that
rgin of country. The ticorgiat Railroad, Augus
ta, tnd the country trading with Hatmburg wvill be
bienefitted b~y it, and fetl atn interest in its success.
Tie State may be called on to loan hor bonds
for a eutlicientt amount to purchase the iron-But
ho uill have pledgedl for the paymeant of the
bond, a sp'lendlid Railroad puroperty' built b~y in
iv idual capital, entcrprisce, and: economy, with
its iront pureba:sedl with the piroeedslt of the boudrs
and a million dollar worth of Machinery.
With regard to lank-roads-They hnve not
been nhandltoed. They are feunnd to be indispen
sable in and tarouud mtost of our cities. P'ittsburg
in 'unuylvania has them leading ont for miles in
every direction. Thley will continue to he used
wherever timnber is lenty, and when it gets scarce
the wooden surface can easily he removed and a
coat of clay and gravel puttin its laeto. If I owned
the Plank-road from Iamnburg to Edlgetield, I
woul replank it, and make an eene surface of its
whole length. I thihk that would secure all the
travel, nd render it as good an investmnent, or
better, than a~reni per cent bond,. If that road can
be made to pay its owneri, and I think it can, ex
tensions would soon be made towards the Saluda
side of the District, and make a'better outlet for
produce, and1 seryc a better purpose to every body,
than Railroads, unless fur expeditious traveling.
You apeak lighttly of ,S'wimp-deuiinage. This is
to become a subject of vast implortanue to our
State; ail is as legitimate an object for State aidl
as Railroads. Frotu thte best estimates to he ob
tained, there are from four to five hundred thotus
and acres of Swamptj Land in the Stato susceptibtle
if reclamation. It is nut confined, as you aver,
to " two or three Parishes of the low country,"
nt oiundls throughout the middle country also.
The Edisto Swamnp at Branchville, is seventy-two
feet ibove the level of the Sea, and can alt he
drained. Gen. IIAxxoxn has ditched and drained
fifteen hundred acres, which are stow nearly if not
quite as good, as Mississippi or Red Wver bottom
and worth from $75 te $100 per aere. Much of
ta.t-au ~as bought at 50 cents ta doAllar an
acre from persons not able to drain it. There are
thouiaids of acres in that vicinity now, in a state
ofinature, which may remain so for a century.
Men of Gen. HawXoND's capital and indomitable
enterpris,, cannot be found every day, to make
fifty miles of ditches varying from five to fourteen
ffit i depth.
In England the Law provides for Government
aid to those who have Swamp Land and unable
tW raln ; such men can procure a loan from Gov
ernment at a low rate of interest by mortgaging
tle land, and are furnished Government Engi
neers to lay out the work for them. The English
Government has supplied millions for such purpo
ses, and not one dollar for Railroads.
I do not recollect ever having predicted that
i'iotton would not rise again above 6 or 7 cents."
IfI did, it has thus far been literally fiulfilled.
Cqtton has nominally risen to it cents, but it is
iot worth more now than it was from 1815 to 1850.
The proceeds of a hundred bales of cotton now at
11 eents will not purchase as much property as
the proceeds of a similar quantity would have
done at the low prices of 6 and 7 cents fifteen
I Where is the man to be f-und so wiso as to have
been able to foresee the discovery of the Califor
nia and Australia gold mines, and the increase of
paper money in the United States from one hun
dred to five hundred millions of dollars. Money
hs depreciated in value and cotton has not rison.
.1hen cotton was at 6 and 7 cents negro men were
worth no more than five and six hundred dollars,
they are now worth from twelve to fifteen hund
rd and in some instance two thousand dollars.
Pairs of horses that used to be worth three and
four hundred dollars, are now on our markets at
from eight to twelve hundred dollars, single horses
that could then be bought for ene hundred dollars,
are now worth two and three hundred dollars.
Mules have risen from sixty and seventy dollars
to two and two hundred and fifty. Kentucky
pork has more than doubled its former price. Ba
con used to be 4 to 5 cents a pound now 9 to 12c.
Coffee has risen from 6 and 7ets. to 11 and 15ets.
Sugar and Molasses and almost every article that
'a Planter consumes (except the goods made from
his own cotton) has gone up in the sitme propor
tion, so it will be soon that cotton is not more val
uable to the Planter at present, than it was when
iLbrought him no more than 6 or 7 cents.
I am, with great respect,
your obedient servant,
Hiapmi's FERRY, Nov. 23.-Governor Wise
.nd staff left here to-day for Richniond.
Major General Taliaferro arrived here by
the express train last evening from Glouces
ter county, and has assumed, by the direction
of Governor Wise, the command of all the
forces. General Taliaferro does not supersede
fol.. Davis, but was entitled by rank to com

-I There are now about one thousand troops
in artfi's'hei-e. A rumor was afloat to-day that
there was a party of outlaws i1n tie inountains
near Cherry Run, but it-is not credited. The
sentinels at Charlestown are reported to bare
been fired at last night.
Governor Wise exhibits no sort of fear of
a rescue being attempted. He thinks it best
to have a good force out. In reply to a gen
leman this morning, he replied that he never
'had the least fear on the subject, but consider
ed it the finest opportunity ever offered to
put the State in military training. I can
now, he said, teach my boys how to carry bis
cuit in their knapsacks and to arrange bullets
in their cartridge-boxes.
a lil We take the subjoined items from the
~Savannah Hornung Kes of Nov. 24th :
*The jury in the ease of Browne. Rejesta and
*Acquira, whose trial on the charge of having
been engaged in the African slave trade, oc
cupied the court during the past eight days,
rendened a verdiet of " not guilty," yesterday,
a little after twelve o'clock, having heen some
iventyi1ourin .the ~Jury. room.
The prisoners were remanded to jail, and,
we understand, are to be tried again, on a
second indictment, rounded on their alleged
slave trade expedition in the Wanderer.
The slaves are leaving Missouri daily. either
escaping to freedom or being sold South.
On the eighth~ instant, twen ty-five slaves left on
one boat. To take their places Northern
laborers are said to be constantly arriving.
A St. Louis editor says he was told by a tull'
gate keeper on the Manchester road that dur.
ing the season not, less than one hundred
families have passed toward the Southwest,
and only one of the number had slaves, all
Ihe rest being from the North and East.
aiir The students of the University of
Virginia behaved nobly in view of the- emnente
at Hariler's Ferry. Upon hearing of the
trouble a large body immediately determined
to arm and start for the Ferry. Before they
couldl perfect their airrangenments news reach
ed themi that the insurrection had been sup
pressed. This landable desire to assist was
not confined to the Virginians, but nmanifested
by students of distant States to the number of
'fone hundred to two hundred.
H~oes 1N TENNEsse.'.-Fromi the -Athens
(Tenn.) Post of Friday we learn that several
large droves of Kentucky grunters have passed
through that place within the last few days.
The " Mule season" is pretty well over, though
there are small lots :till passing. This is .the
great stock route leading from Kentucky into
Georgia, and the numbers that yearly travel
it are alumost incredible.
A lot of pork was sold at Athens last week,
at C cents nett, and notwithstanding large
numbers have died from, " cholera," the yield
will be large. Corn was selling at 40 cents
A monkey and a goat quarrelled about eti
quette, when a jackass, as usual, was called in
to settle the controversy.
