to have murdered the Dearing family a few

that tho entire family, consisting of eight
persons, wcro inhumanly butchered and thc

their premises. Gauter made a full confession
to the civil authorities, and implicated an ac

Thc wholo Atlantic conti, in fact tho whole

made its appearance at tao gatos of Halifax and
New -York.- In tho harbor pf .Halifax, is now ly
ing at quarantine, tho steamship England, full of
immigrants, and full of iLstatic Choler.!. In Now
York Bay, is lying, finder tho sumo circumstances,
thc steamship Virginia. In-these cities, univer
sal terror prevails. From Maine to Florida, the
public authorities of cities, towns and villages are
setting on foot the most ?tring;nt sanitary meas
ures. Now is tho time to remember, and act upon,
the old saying " an ounce of prevention is worth

Many of thc most noted and able Methodist
preachers of tho Southern Church ure also in at
tendance ; and the daily meetings of the body
seem to be characterised by enrr.cst labor, and
fraught with deep intorett. Ono of tho chief
matters under consideration is tho eloction of a
number of new Bishops. It is said that Dr. Wu.
M. WIGHTMAN of South Carolina, now President
of tho University of Alabama, ' will undoubtedly
bo elevated to tho Episcopacy.
Two or moro of tho Bishops havo been author

him for rostoring tho property belonging to thc
Church, which was takeri by force and lately
bald-By the M. E. Church, North.
And while speaking of the Northern Church, it
will not ho amiss to inform many of our readers,
who may he ignorant, of the fact, that Bishop
BAKT.T1 of that Church has lately been to Char
leston, and called together, for consultation, tho
missionaries (Yankee preachers) of the "Southern
Department." Aftor the subject had boen fully
canvassed, Bishop BAKER organized a Conference,
embracing in it* geographical circuits tho .States of j
South Carolina, Eastern Georgia and Florida, to
bo known as tho South Carolina Mission Con
ference. This Confcronco bas stations on most o'
the Islands, in Charleston, in Beaufort, in George
town, in Orangeburg, in Cheraw, and many other
places in the Southern and Eastorn portions of j
our State. Since tho Methodist Church, South,
and tho Methodist Church, North, are two en
tirely distinct nnd separate organizations, this
state of things is, of course, to be deeply deplored.
When tho General Confcronco of thc Methodist
Church, South, shall have adjoumod, we will en

journal, established some eight or ten months
hack, hns ceased to exist. It retires from thc

Tho Transcript is now morged into the Chroni

Congressional Conservation of Female
We clip the following from tho Louisville Daily
Courier of the 16th inst. We suppose it must be
a joko; if it is, howevor, thc Courier docs not say
so. And in these days of Congressional lunney,
thore is no knowing what Congress may not take
in band. But that this honorable and dignified (?)
body should be undertaking to savo poor, inno
cent, loving, unsuspecting men from tho fascina
ting deceitfulness of waterfalls, frizzod hair and
fdso calves, is somothing intensely ludicrous. Wo
certainly have no manufacturers of such "articles"
about here ; but it might bchoovo "justices of tho
peace" and "ministers" to keep a sharp lookout,
lest thoy bc made to dance to thc tuno of "ono
