ARTRUR SInRTWS, EDITOR.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1859.
The flourishing and ably-conducted schools at
this place will remain for 1960 under the same su
pervision as during last year. Attention is earnestly
invited to their established merits. The facilities
are not to be surpassed in any part of the country.
Senator Chesuut's Speech.
The reader will find the late speech in Congress
by our junior Senator on another page. It is
well-conceived and well-expressed. Its decided
yet courteous tone will commend the approbation
of the country.
Ahead of All the Rest.
In the prices of negro property the cry is still,
they rise. On Friday lait Dr. E. BLASD sold be
between 20 and 30 negroes at his plantation for an
average of $1165,75 per head. We rather think
this is the best sale of the season, South.
The Holidays! The Holidays!
Mr. EnUxN Pavs, jr., at the old and well
known stand, is daily filling In with all the deli
cacies and the nick-nacks, the good things and
the funny things, the comestibles and the combu2
tibias adapted to the holidays. Oh, those delicious
Core Oysters which we have bad the pleasure of
sampling! Usuw E Pleribus ! How tempue does

Our motaber has made a sp.iritod speech in Con
gress, warning the North of the dangers at hand
and solemnly declaring his conviction that the
Union is in imminent danger of disruption. We
have not received a report of the General's re
marks, but will give them as soon as we can.
Col. Wigfall's Election.
Col. Lovas T. W:GFALL, well remembered by
Edgefield as one of her most brilliant sons, has
been elected United States Senator from Texas.
We beg leave. as it is nearly Christmas, to throw
lp our hat and shout threc-tim~es-three for the
senator elect. He has reached an arena suited to
his genius. We shall expect him to be the Brutus
of the American Senate. His triumph over Hous
ToN's party in Texas is a matter of congratulation.
But lot it not be forgotten that upon the Slave
Trade question he agreed with that party. Only
the other day an Edgefield man, Mr. LANDRUV,
was elected to Congress from Louisiana. Next
comes the intelligence we have just recorded.
Edgofield is proud of the promotion of her distant
The Orangeburg Vigilants appear to be deter
mined that no one rhall pass that locality unebal
lenged. One of our very best looking Edgefield
caizens, and who was an aid to Governor ADAus,
happened to alight from the railroad at that place
rtecntly, and wvas 'nabbed' immediately by them.
Humoring the joke, the Colonel went along very
quietly until chance threw in his way a friend who
knew him well, when of course an explanation
ensued and the vigilante subsided.
Early on the morning of the 15th instant a vigi
lant servant brought into our cottage a young and
helpless criature whichs he had found on the side ot
the road at a short distance from our gate. Strange
to say, It was both healthful and gleeful although
so much exposed, which went to prove that it had
been thug, abandoned for only a very short time.
No one was seen near ;-no one had been seen
about that morning;-and no one has since ap
peared to claim the little charge. Up to this time,
we have kept the matter entirely quiet, lest we
might unnecessarily expose a thing in which the
too curious public has no especial concern. But
now we feel it to be our duty to state the circum
stance explicitly. The pitable object of this
strange treatment has the appearance of being five
or six months old, is a female, has very pretty eyes,
and was eomfortably but very plainly clad in a
coarse mixtue of wool and hair. The only ether
facts worth sdientioning to establish its identity, are
these: It hein a veil and barke rery well indceeL for

The Plank Road.
It will afford many of the people of this and
the upper Districts great pleasure, to know that
the Edgefield and Hamburg Plank Ror'd is now
undergoing such rapid imul-rovemzent as will result
in itst entire renewal within a twelve month frumn
this date. The plan adepted is to put down all
new plank wherever the rad is touched. There
is force enouagh at work to accoumplish one hundred
and fifty yards per diem,, which will be about two
miles a month. In nine mothds sixteen or cighteen
miles will thus be renewed; And there are naow
n.eurly laid aearly tee miles. 8o that it may be
safely calculated that the wholo ruad will be in
good order by the lust of next year. This is good
news ind. ' vur there is siot a doubt, that this
road is ont .aest works ever undertaken in
Edgefield. Its present managers deserve high
praise for the determination and energy they have
displayed during the last two years, which has
been the test period of the Road's fate. Thanks
to their unflinehing devotion to its interests, it has
stood the test and is again a success. May every
good ciizen lend it his patronage; may the stock

Nothing decisive had occurred in Congress up
to last advices. Mr. Masox's resolution of enqui
ry was still under consideration in the Senate.
Members of the House were still delivering them
selves of speeches and sectional sentiments. Mr.
SiCELs, of New York, had made a patriotic ap
peal to the North against the slavery agitation and
in justification of the South. Mr. HICKMAN, of
Pen., had threatened force in the event of attempted
disunion. General BONaM and others had given
expression to high-toned southern feelings. The
excitement was rather on the decline. No election
of Speaker yet. The last ballot on Friday, the
16th, stood as follows:
Having waited until the last hour almost for the
letter of our Columbia Correspondent, and not
having received it, we are minue our Legislative
information. Neitheris it a matter of consequence,
as no new topic appears to have been broached in
either House, and we now only await the decision
of what has been brought before the body,-of all
which our readers have been duly advertised,
One of the most important measures of the Ses
sion is the establishment of a separate Court of Ap
peals. The intelligence is sufficiently positive that
this measure has received the sanction of the Leg.
islature, and is by this time an Act. In view of
its passage, we distinctly take back what we have
good humouredly said about tho "masterly inac
tivity of our present Legislature," &c, &c. This
measure alone is sufficient to redeem that assembly
from the charge of mediocrity. Because it is a
measure of general value and of eminently wise
purposes. Its adoption is an era in oir State Leg
islation, and we doubt not that the prejudices en
gendered against it in days past will soon be
forgotten in the admirable working of the present
There are speculations alloat as to the occupan
cy of the new bench, and the name of JAMEs L.
PtroaU is mentioned in connection with the po
sition of Chief Justice. With all due respect and
admiration for this distinguished lawyer, may it
not yet be doubted whether it would be either wise
or proper to go outside of our present Judiciary to
obtain the Judges of the new Court?
In Federal politics, the storw has been raging
high during the night sossions of the past week.
Action appears to have settled down upon the fol
lowing resolutions offered by Hon. C. U. MEx
miaMaa, which were passed unanimously in the
House on the 16th instant: ,
Ifesolvel, That it is the deliberate judgment of
this General Assembly that the slave-holding
States should immediately meet together to con
cert measures for united action.
Rlesolved, That the foregoing resolution be com
municated by the Governor to all the slave-holding
States, with the earnest request of this State that
they will appoint deputies, and adopt such mea
sures as in their judgment will promote the said
Resolved, That a special commission be appoin
ted by this General Assembly to communicate the
foregoing resolutions to the State of Virginia, and
to express to the authorities of that State the cor
dial sympathy of the people of South Carolina
with the people of Virginia, and their earnest do
sire to unite with them in measures of defence.
Resolred. That the State of South Carolina owes
it to her own citizens to protect them and their
property from every enemy, and that for the pur
pose of military preparation for any emergency,
the sum of $100,000 he appropriated for military
Another resolution was at first appended to this
string, authorizing the establishment of a separate
office in the Executive Department for organizing
and directing the military defences of the State
with the money voted in a preceding resolution.
lBnt this was dropped from some cause or other:
although, to say the truth, it was the only one of
the set which really sounded like immediate ae
tion. The resolutions as they stand will receive
the cordial approbation of the whole State. It is
to be hoped that, they will nut prove, like other
resolutions of a past day, CoUc et pruterea nihil.
3. Amongst other propositions likely to peass,
one for the protection of sheep-husbandry, by cur
tailing our dog privileges, is worthy of mention.
There has heretofore been an indisposition to at
tempt any thing of this sort in earnest; but this
session it has not been a laughing matter. On
the contrary, it has been'well and favorably con
sidered. And we believe Its adoption would meet
the general applause of the people. It would cer
tainly conduce to the true interests of otur State.
Next wedk we hope to be able to give a list of
the Arts of the Leginuture at its present 4ession.

The hallowed season approchos. " wherein our
Saviour's birth is celobruted." Other annaiversa.
ries among men have only to do with mortul and
perishable greatness. But this is the anniversary
of the birth of the Sou of the Highest. Other
celebrations have for their subject the triumph of
armies, or, it way be, the achieved independence
of nations. But this is the celebration of an event
which inaugurated thu Salvation of a World.
Eighteen hundred and aifty-nine years have run
their appointed rounds since that glorious morn
arose when the Angel of the Lord aroused certain
shepherds of the plaiu with the thrilling intelli
gence, " I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which ehall be to all people; For unto yow is
borns this day in the city of David a Saviour, which
is Christ the Lord." And as often as that anni
verary has recurred, that Angel with legiuns of
atteudaze spirits may well he supposed to have
descended from the battlements of HigbhHeaven.
to sweep through the murky atmosphlere of Earth
agiu, and again to renew those precious breath.
ingS~oi Heavenly inepiratioun: * Glory to God in
tho highest, and on earth peace, good will toward
men." M3ay it not be, that " a multitude of the
Heavenly hoes" is now again preparing, in the
very ecstasy of rapture, toj revifrit Bethlehem in
meory of that great miesiont of Love,-thence to
impart to the four qguarters of the Globe the be
nign influences of thu tjum~like boon of which
they were the hnnored bearers eighteen hundred
and fifty-us years ago!
Call it superstition, if you like ; there Las ever
pervaded the atmosphere of earth,at this blessed
season, a peculiar something of joy and gratitude
and love and charity which have not beeon obser
vable at any) other periods of the rolling years.
True, this blending of righateoaus imp~ulses has of
tn been fund running in pollutedl channel, and
xhiLiting itself in unhallowed orgies. But good
men have ever been lifted nearer to lleaven by the
suggestions of tihe hour ; andI even the demnonstra
tions of the thouightlttas and of fouls seem to have
proceeded upon sonme udetined conviction, now
dimly realized through the dusk of their beelouded
imaginations, that the earth is full of the glory
and of the goodness of Gud. The bard of Avon,
than whom no man ever inure aceurately recordled
the opinions and traditions of his day. thus makes
an interior character in one of his plays aliude to
the ever wide-spread sentimount of involuntary faith
respeting this great festival of penc:

As then, so before, and so to the day in which
we live, has the mystery of a divine agency been
recognized through out C hristendo~m as peculiarly
prevailing in the earth and air and waters of ottr
p!anet at this mighty anniversary.
Let us then, with all the hosts of Heaven, and
with all the elements of Tiwe, and with all the
sparkling orbs that fill creation, bow down our
hearts in gratitude and lore while viewinag anew
the birth day of the P'rince of P'eace, lowreer

The Senate was yesterday (says the South Car
olinian of Friday last,) again engaged in discus
sing the propriety of any citizens of the State send
ing delegates to the Charleston Convention. All
the declamation, eloquent and forcible though it
was, about the corruption that prevails in these
conventions, may be true, but where can we go to
avoid the contact of corruption ? Certainly no hu
man body is exempt from it, not even our Legis
lature. Denunciations could be heaped with all
truthfulness and propriety upon that very body for
the log-rolling, caucusing and wire-pulling in
dulged in whenever any election of importance
comes up. It would not be a great exaggeration
to say that, in many instances, the minor offices
are made so much stock in trade for carrying lar
ger ones, yet no one should decline holding a place
in the State councils beeause these things occur.
So, also, with our Federal Congress. Yet we And

that we should go there and contribute our influ

Whoso dwells in a chateau d'espague,
Careth neither for wind or for rain:
For wrapped in his mantle secure
All storms.he alike could onjure,
As long as the chateau shall last,
His joys they but multiply fast.
Still, he'd best keep a foot upon earth,
- For his birth,
:Estalls upon some a sad dearth
- Of true mirth;
And his chateau might fall,
And then sorrow's dark pall
Would o'erwhelm him beneath its dull fold;
And the love.of this world groweth cold,
When one has neither wit nor bright gold!
if he's "born to the purple"-woree still,
Should he fail
His purse with fair metal to fill,
Men would rail,
At his airy-built castles that vanish like day,
Though decked with fair jewels-emiting no ray,
And sad would he be then indeed
-To find his hopes but a " bruised reed."
Atill, "Bohemians" will cherish each dream,
Though a gleam
Of sad fact through the imagery beam;
'Till it seem,
That each "c astle of Spain"
That is built, is but vain;

"Avolio, And Other Poems."
Such is the designation of a new volume of
Poems by Mr. PAUL H1. HAYNX, of C'
who alresady ranks honorably amongst the poets
of America. We hare just read his present book
through and through with care stimulated by in
torest in the success of the author. It is with sin
cere gratitication that we say, in arising from
the pleasant task, that we are satisfied with the
progress towards full development here manifested
by the young Poet Laureate of South Carolina.
" AvoLIo," the first and longest poem in the
volume, is founded upon Lrsca HUNr's " Daugh
ter of Hippocrate," which wild sketch we chanced
to republish for our readers' entertainment only a
few weeks ago. Mr. HATsN has wrought a web
of poesy around that strange narrative in the style
of true genius. If we say that Hexr's prose
thrilled us more than HIAYNE's poetry, we would
not be understood as underrating the latter.
Prose, we respectfully submit, is a far more pow
erful means of descriptive eloquence than poetry,
and, in the hands of such a master as LEIGH HUNT'
can be made, as in this instance, to subserve a
purpose which few poets may successfully strive
to equal. But Mr. HAYsEa has done himself great
credit by his brilliant execution of this daring ex
ploit in the field of letters. While HUNT has not
been rivalud in the denouement of his story, he
has been more than rivaled in other portions of
the sketch. Our poet has outshone him in the In
troduction, which is the richest descriptive passage
we have seen from his pon. His fancy of the un
fortunate Actoon, who also felt DIANA'S wrath,
and his interpolation of the " Imtprisoned Naiad,"
are both quite in keeping with the subject of the
poem, and add decided beauty to its proportions.
The versification throughout is exceedingly well
finished. (Exception: Scond line of 12th Page,
in which the article ais not sufficient to thedemand
of the foot in which it occurs.) The language of
the ppom is simplex maunditias in the main, with
occasional passages of gorgeous elegance.
But we prefer some other portions of this little
work to "Avoto." The Sonnets generally are
very sweet, a few of them strikingly beautiful.
Among these " The Revelation of Death," suggested
by the last words of GOETHE, is net the least mor
torious. We herewith copy it:
" Light! give me light!"-the expiring Poet cried,
Closing hs languid eyelids on the day,
And with that soleton cry he passed away;
And haply Doubt was solved, and Error died,
And glimmering Trust was grandly glorified,
Even in the moment of his mightiest need;
And that same light God plantoth as a seed,
Outburst from darkness to a bread noontide;
So that he saw as, Brothers! toe shall see
(Freed by the angel Death) the chain sublime
Which binds dim Earth to clear Eternity,
Gleam from the duskiest depths of doubtful Time;
And learnt, as ae shall learn, the wondrous plan
" Which justifies the ways of God to man."
The reader will not object to another exquisite
morceau from this department of the book:
Between the sunken Sun and the new Moon,
I stood in fields through which a clear brook ran
With scarce perceptible motion, not a span
Of its smooth surface trembling to the tune
Of sunset breezes: "0 delicious boon,"
I cried, "of quiet !-wise is Nature's plan,
Who, ini her real, as in the soul of man,
Alternates storu with calm, and the loud Noon
With dewy Evening's soft and sacred lull:
Happy the Heart taat keeps its twilight hour,
And, in the depths of heavenly peace reclined,
Loves to commune with thoughts of tender power,
Thoughts that ascend,-like Angels beautiful,
A shining Jacob's ladder of the mind."
Of the miscellaneous pieces ii this charming col
leetion we venture to name the following as our
favorites: (1) The song, 'ly, ieftly Fly; (2) The
Tero Sunmere; (3) The Village Beauty ; (4) The
Picture Of A Iieantiful Death; (5) The Ece of The
fridal; (6) The Will And The Wing. And one
Iof these we append, to give a taste of Mr. HIAYNE 'S
quality in this class of verses. We feel sure that
many will applaud our selection:
THlE VILLAGE BEA UTY.
The glowing tints of a Tropic eve
Burn on her radiant cheek,
And we know that her voice is rich and low,
Though we never have heard her speak;
So full are those gracious eyes of light,
That the bliseful flood runs o'er,
And wherever her tranquil pathw'ay tends
A glory dits on before1
0 ! very grand are the city belles,
Of a brilliant and stately mien,
As they walk the steps of the languid dance,
And flirt in the pauses between;
Dut beneath -.he boughs of the hoary oak,
Where the iinstrel fountains play,
I think that the artless village girl
Is sweeter by far than they.
0! vesry grand are the city belle',
But their hearts are worn away
By the keen-edgedt worlad,.and their lives have lost
The beauty and :nirth of May;
They morve where the sun and the starry dews
lleign no't; they are haughty and hold,
Andl they do not shrink from the cursed mart
Where Faith is the slave of Gold.
But the starry dews end the genial sun
Have gladdunedl her guileless youth,
And her browv is bright with the 8ush of hope,
Hecr soul with the seual of truth;
Her feet arc beautilul on the hilia
.As the steys of an Orient muorn,
And Rtuth was never maore fair tu see
I' the midst of the A utumn corn.
e a a a a is a a
Dear Eflie! givh me thy loyal hand,
As soft sund warns as thy heart,
Anal tell mne again .I tuay call thee mine,
When the winter sturmas depart ;
'Tis true that thou mnak'st all seasons bsright,
lint is it not fitter that we.
Shuould wed when the Spring-thy sister-comnes
To be a brideasnaidl to thee ?
The buds wiil lurosum as bloom our hopes,
And the carth make glad replies
To the mnusic that moves our inmnost souls
With its marvellous harmonies ;
And between the Nature that glows without
Andl the nature thait thrills withiun,
The delicate mnorning of love shall close,
And its bountiful noon begiun!
A little gemn of loveliness! Lines that will live.
Without a daw or a blemish. Our A merican boots
are deficient in this kind of soft-tiowing;. natural,
warm-hbearted poetry. It brings to muind Horace's
" dulee ridetcmcs, dnIcvfae iatem' AInyena." Mr.
UHAYNE will not, !t is to be hoped, refuse to allow
his msuse further gisnnees in this direction.
But while pleased with the rest of Mr. l1Avss
new bookh, we aro adelighted with his samlesc of
Dramtsntic Cumaporition. Both . lautnie J/lefhda'ri
and Atf.na IHed aure triumphant effor ts. The
latter is but a fragmnent, though very beautiful as
far as it is given. The former approaches the
dimsensions anad caast of the Driama nsear enough to
shosw that our author is qiuite ceaable of ituccess
in this paecu'iar sand .ltlicult graade of poetic coim
piositioan. The plot, tht tarrangemient, the style,
are of a kind to paroducte stage as well as book ef
fect ; Anid we beg leave warsuly to urge Mr. HlA xE
toa labaor on its this dlepartmaenst, asnd to, give us a
fulleoized Dr.amsa nsext. Thluat he enna succeed in
producing sa Play that will bht drelt and read
arell, there is nlow naa room to daoubt. That he

In coneliding this brief uotice, we cosmmend

P'ost Scriptam. Where there is so mauch to grat
ify, we are indisposed to criticize. Yet we must
be piermaitted to hope that Mr. HIAYsE will avoitd
in fauture a c'ertaina prolixity of sentence which
detracts frotm thet met it of some of his best pieces.
We sare aware of the famsius authority for this pe.
culiarity of style. Itut the old Hloratian rule,-to
write so .simplly that every readler will imagine
that he might have donec it himself,-is to our view
the true ,.ule in poetic aPamnpa.sitionu. Mr. IIaYYT.

TO THE MERCHANTS
SOUTH AND SOTHWESTI
WE, THE UNDESIGNED, IMPORTERS AND
JOBBERS in the City of Charleston, in view of
the present excited state of the country, deem it
proper to bring to the notice of the interior Mer
chants the claims we have to their patronage and
custom. The majority 6f us have been long es.
tablished in business, and from our experience are
well acquainted with the wants of this section of
country. All of us hold sentiments in common on
the agitating question of the day-slavery-and
all 01 us desire, as far as practicable to become
eomnmereinally independent of the North. We have
no desire to underrate the energy and enterprise
of the merchants of Northern cities, but we claim
tao be able to supply Goods in our respective linen
on as favorable terms, both as to price and credit,
as the merchants of any city in the Union. We
have facilities for obtaining Goods from Eurojae
not surpassed by any, and our importations from
abroad are very large, notwithsttading the reports
to the contrary, circulated by thase who, haive no
knowledge of what they affirm or whose interests
prompt them to mislead. Americana Goodis we eb
tain from the manufacturers on as fnvorable ternms
as any Jobbing merchant,.tde Ahe Northern cities,
Why, then, should w'e not be ablle ta, sell (an-as
favorable terms as others ? We are able und de
termined to do so, and all we ask of you is to try
this market-hay aside the parejudice (f'or it is only
a prejudice) that your customers larefer Gaoods
from New York to thaose fraom Chanrlestoan, nndl
build up and encourage your oawn seni~ort nudl
your own merchants, If we eannot daa whmat we
prefers, yo~u will be subajected to very little inceon;
venience, for oppartunmities (at leavimag b~y railwna)
or steaumaer aure offered every twelve hours.
Our Stocks will b~e conmplete lay 1st Felaruanry
next, and it remains to hbe seen how manay of thao.c
who have heretofore purahased all their Goaods in
Northern cities will give Charleston a trial this
