This distinguished nan has gone to his
rest, after a life of toil and usefulness. We
knew him well. Our first acquaintance with
him was, when he kept a small jeweller's
Store in Columbia, and worked at the trade
of silversmith and watch-maker, in the yeai
1829. The quality which among many ex
cellent traits, adorned h m, wa- his unbending
integrity. He was a native of Virginia, and
like the generality of men produced by thal
mother of heroes and'statesmen, his persona!
appearance was without blemish, and indeed
beautiful, in early mauhood, being nearly si*
feet high aud well proportioned. Hts face
wis bright with an expression of thought and
kindness, always blooming in health like s
fjse. Eroin Columbia, he went to Charleston
where for many years, he was in busines
with thc Haydens, as jewellers, carrying on
t'ie largest business of the kind, in the State
Fortune smiled on his efforts, and be founded
thc Granitevillc factory, where he established
a village. This enterprise gave employment
to a large community of poor people, to whom
he was a benefactor and friend ; practica1
good sense directed all histff.ri? and crowned
t ?em with success. The voters of Edgefielc
honored him with a seat in the legislature
and in that sphere of duty, he was not found
wanting. His speech on the Banks of the
Slate, published in pamphlet, shows a clea:
head and sound judgment, and proves that be
merited the coufidence of a constituency whe
had been accustomed to be served by some o
the greatest men of the State.-Marior
Important Suit--Property in Slaves.
Judges Davis and Drummond, of the U.S
Court, have a case before them at Chicago
involving the legality of slave note?. Ir
M?rch. 1802, Lumsden, a citizen of Tennes
see, sold to G. H. Roset, of New Orleans, twe
slaves, for ?2.100. He received part pay al
the time, and took two notes for thc re
mainder, payable in four and six mouths aftei
dite. Lumsden sues Roset for tho notes
His counsel argue that "inasmuch as the con
tract was a valid one at the time itwas made
the right of recovery upon the note3 was noi
affected, either by the Proclamation of Eman
cipition, nor by the Amendment to the Con
s'itution abolishing slavery ; and that, ur.dei
the rules of comity, the Court was bound tc
enforce the contract."
The defendant's counsel maintain that there
was nothing in the Constitution making ii
obligatory upon the Courts of States where
slavery did not exist to enforce any contract?
growing out of or relating to it, or to in any
way judicially recognize tte right of the mas
ter to thc slave. The institution of slavery
was forever abolished, and that when the
" central crime fell it carried all its surround
ir;gs, incidents, and privileges with it to s
common grave." Louisiana, he continues, was
in rebellion at the time the contract was
made, aud thc negro, so far ast.be U. S. Gov
ernment was concerned, was noi a slave.
Thc Court has reserved its decision. Judge
u My impression was that a contract made
for that which was a good consideration al
tho time in the place where it was made,
.should be held good everywhere. The ouly
argument, I think, is, that inasmuch as the
law which constituted it a good consideration
at the time it was giveu, having been de
stroyed, that everything connected with the
contract has been destroyed also ; that i?, the
right to enforce it. If that follows, then,
that would be the logic of this case; that
where there was a law inexistence, for exam
pie, by which the contract was valid, and the
Jaw was repealed, if the repeal of the lajv de
stroyed the consideration and prevented en
forcement of thc contract, it would reaoh this
eise. Tho case is so very important thal
really it ought to be decided by the Supreme
Couri; of the United States.
The decision is looked for with in arest

The Mott Beautiful Cottage About Our
The most beautiful Cottngo, and, upon thc
whole, one of the most beautiful places, about our
town, is, in our issue of to-day, offered for sale.
The bouau, without and within, is uncommonly
tasteful and comundious; and tho premises have
every one of the advantages claimed for them by
the advertisement of Messrs. DORN ? JOHNSON.
A Day in Augusta.
We spont a day, ono short aud hurried day, in
the city of Augusta last week', and in connection
with tho day's sojnrn we jot down an item or two.
1. Augusta ccvor offered finer iuducunionts in
thc various branches of trado than tho docs this
fall. The Etoros and shops aro magnificently
filled with Raiment, with Provisions, with Luxu
ries, with Vanities.
2. The trado and business of tho season are
much delayed and deprested by tho untoward fall
in the prioo of euuuu, and ny mo general moneyea
difficulties of theso uncertain times.
3. Merchants are waiting with great anxiety
for thc coming-to-town of their country friends ;
in fact, thoy arc keenly on the lookout.
4. Tho consequence is, the briskost possible
5. The manifest intention on the port of sellers,
is quick sales for small profits.
G. The season being put off later than usual,
thc business of tho winter must bc accomplished
in a more limited space of time.
7. From these several facts may bo drawn tho
conclusion that Augusto, during the coming four
month?, will bc a wonderfully fino place in which
to get good Bargains.
8. And to ascertain where to get these Good
Bargains-and whore to sscure everything that
is useful, fashionable and fine-consult our Ad
vertising Columns. Don't forget that.
9". An item for ladies. Tho fashionable color is
"Bismarck"-a cort of shining, yellowish brown,
of almost countless .?hades ; sometimes almost
orange, then again almost snuff-color. Hats,
dresses, trimming, all Bismarck. Wo thought
the rather common goods of tho Bismarck color
very ugly ; but tho handsomo ones, on tho con
trary, very beautiful ; such as silks, moires, pop
ins, Ac. Bonnets very small still, and very
much of the same style. Hoops very small.
Dresses invariably gored, and without plaits or
10. For gentlemen, gay youth?, ?tc. The tight
pants, so universally the mode at the North, are
till not worn in Augusta. Dolightcd to see it; for it
is a droadful thing to bo out of the fashion, and
tight* are fearfully hideous. Very short sacks.
Very low-crowned hats.
11. Augusta has Theatrical Amusoments in
progress, and will continuo to have thom from
timo to titeo during tho winter. A great resource
to country persons visiting the city, beguiling tho
long hours after toa, when one can no longer sell
12. Augusta has also extremely rxcellent Res
taurants and Oyster-Houses for tho delectation of
the hungry or greody. 'Tis so delightful for
country peoplo to bc befallen oj fresh oysters !
13. And Augusta has placos whore unwary
rustics may easily become heavily saturated with
" whiskey straight," and ultimately find them
selves deep down in the lowlands. Vcrbum sap !
14. And spoaking of hard times, it just occurs
to us that the people of Augusta are looking re
markably cheerful under tho pressure ; which
goos to prove that they are a philosophical sort
of folks, ns littlo apt to be cast down by adversity
as to bo unduly elated by prosperity.
15. Yet, with all their cheerfulness, thoy want
money soroly-quito as bad as any of tho rest-of
us ; and a gold dollar looks this day as big as a
breakfast plato to many of them.
16. And lastly; though it-ought to be first.
Augusta bas tho finest and bett Hotel in the
Southern country. We mean " Tho Planters,"
kept by Tuos. J. NICKERSON Esq., a gentleman
known throughout South Carolina und Georgia
for his eminent capacity in this lino. This House,
which, after thorough renovation in cvory depart
ment, was opened by Mr. NICKERSON only one
year ago, his built up in tho courso of that one
year, a most extraordinarily handsomo reputation.
At Thc Planter; tho traveler or sojourner will bo
suro to find tho -highest dogroe of comfort, the
highest degreo of elegance, tho highest dogroo of
refinement and polito attention. Mr. NiCKKnso.v
himself hos the gonoral superintendence of tho
establishment, which, to all who know him, il
sufficient guarantee that everything will bo ex
actly as it should be. While in the office and at
tho desk will bo found Mr. GOLDSTEIN, a quiet
and refined gontleman who stands evor. ready to
servo tho patrons of thy House with the kindliest
efficiency. To our planters, and their wives and
families, who will now bo visiting Augusta, wo
say most honestly : Ropair to tho Plantors ; and
when your sojourn in Augusta is over, you will,
without a doubt, confess that The Planter? was
its pleasantest and most enjoyable feature.
The total number registered in South Ca
rolina is ostimated to be 125,000, of which 45,000
aro whites and 80,000 aro blacks. In North Caro
lina tho total number is estimated at 174,717, tho ,
Jproportion in that State being three whites to one j.
Voting Upon the Question- of Conven
Very much is htiug said in thoso States in
which Elections for Convention aro ponding, as
to whether votes simply for Delegates (saying
nothing about "for" or "against" Convention)
nil! bo rtekoUod in the counting nf billots, nr
not It is our opinion, that such votes will
not be reckoned. At all events, in South Ca
rolina and in Edgefield District, where the ?ne
groes, ax registered voters, aro so powerfully in
the majority, it boots but little to argue tbc ques
tion. Our best policy is to ignoro this election
i?i toto. Whites and blacks caunot share political
pc wer. AU history pmves this. Neither military
nor civil authorities can accomplish it. Repug
nant to truth, to intelligence, to ruligion, it is
simply an impossibility. Better thereforo to let
tho nogru see at once that wo will not even at
tempt to share power with him. Better that ho
should bu taught to realize his true position-lo
remain where God and Naturo havo pluce'd h!m
It is to be earnestly hoped that our people will
sternly njret the teachings of all Radicals or
half-way Radicals-thr' they will support the
President and the Constitution ; that they will
patiently bear this Military Government, which
is really ephemeral ; thnt they will persistently
deny the dogma of equality,' that thoy will never
sanction thu vile principio of Rudicalism tuibo
died in tho.?doa of equality; tbut they will ig
noro this Convention ; and ultimately save them
selves from the horrors of negro juries, ofuce
holders, and miscegenation-infamy of infamies
and eternal disgrace.
We say ultimately, for have we not high hop?
and cvidenco that Radicalism has well sigh
reached the o'ernal " Thus far and no farther I"
It s'ands upon u crater, and tho hot air of repu
diation is ul ready rising through tb? crevices and
shaking the ashes under its feet Let these
Radicals have it all their own way now ; and if
in future the free and enlightened people of this
Union hurl them not from power, and if a com
petent legislative or judicial authority does not
repeal, modify or annul their vile luws, thon will
we at least Lavo the proud an? uiuch-to-be-ralned
satisfaction of feeling that ice had no hand what
tier in bringing upon ourselves tho deepest and
mott damned degradation.

A Burdensome Tux on the Planter.
Tho Augusta National Republican "takes e lick"
at the " City Fathers" for some of their ta_ation
blunders, and promises to do so again. In a late
issue, rt comes out in favor of doing away with
the City Tax on Cotton, which, to the planter, in
addition to the other heavy and unjust taxes on
tho staple, is considered rather oppressive, to say
thc least. This Tax is indeed a cause of mur
muring, and if possible wo hope tho City authori
ties of Augusta will deviso sonso plan whereby to
remove it and other measures that operate
to tho prejudice of tho already we'l-nigh-taxed-to
dcith planter. The Republican well say? :
"It appear? to us that the financial system
pursued by the City of Augusta, so far as tho
rai?! rt g of revenue is concerned, is of the most
suicidal character. A policy which taxes thc trad*
which makes the City, is unsound in principle,
and calculated to destroy the means by which its

Augusta taxes the cotton which is brought tc
the city for sule. If it were possible for planier'
to patronize another market whero no such tax
was laid who cnn doubt but that great 3ource of
trndo and revenue would be diverted into nnotbor
channel ? This t?x falls upon tho planting coin
munity, already burdened with another heavy im
post upon thuir production. Much murmuring
has endued among the planters un account of the
city tax, but grumbling did no good, they could
not remedy it. Tho remedy should have been ap
plied by the citiitjns of Augusta, and that thoy
have not dono it, may well cause the planters to
hold them in some dir favor.
Another branch of taxation is equally unjust
and onerous : werofer to the tax on the gross sales
of merchants and traders. No matter whether
the merchant has little, much, or nothing of profit
on his sales, not his profits but his snles aromado
thc subject of taxation. This ihonld bo wholly
reformed, and tho tax should fall on incomes and
on thc property which is benefitted by trade. No
obstacles and no burdens should be placed in the
way of tho business of tho city.
" Chewing Gum."

of the gum, wu: roccntly discharged from tho

by which these liquids, which young Americans
masticate with such velocity und apparont satis

parts of cum arabic, gum-tragacanth, a small
quantity of rosin, and lat. Tho fat used is not.

it?neo oxprcsscd frum tho dead hogs, cats, dogs,
and other animals found on tho commons of the
city. This is not tho worst, of it.- After tho va
rious ingredients uro melted touolber in ft huge
kettle, a certain kind of alkali is put in for tho
purposo of whitening tho gum. This alkali is
tho same that is used by dyers with indigo to
give a deep nnd permanent blue to flannels.

of Thursday, says :
" Thc present week is the regular term of

that he considers it impracticable to adminis

A Flagrant and Unwarrantable Out?
On Tuesday last, the Sergeant in charge of the
detachment of tho 5th U. S. Cavalry stationed
near this Villago, forcibly entered the plantation
of Mr. LEWIS JOKES, nino miles from the Court
Houso, and under the pretence of protecting tho
interest of a freedman, who bad made an idle
and groundless complaint, seized and removed
eight or ten bales of Cotton which had been de
livered to Mr. JOKES by a neighbor, in part sat
isfaction of a j??t.claim. Thc Cotton, wo aro
informed, was that night clandestinely taken pos
session of by irresponsible parties, and run off
across tho Savannah River. This looks badly for
the Military, to say nothing of thc other partios
Mr. JOSES protested earnestly against this vio
lent and lawless proceeding, and urged tho Ser
geant, in vain, to refer tho matter to bis Com
manding officer, who was at Aiken, and have
some investigation before summarily trespassing
upon his rights and proporty,-offering again and
again to make tho amplest satisfaction, in cash if
necessary, for every claim which any frcodmen
might havo apon the Cotton.
Wo are informed that Maj. WALKER, Com
manding at Aiken, has been repeatedly notified of
tho outrage, but havo heard of no steps being ta
ken to bring thc guilty parties to punishment, or
to havo the proporty restorod to tho rightful
If this Sergeant acted without orders, or con
trary to orders, Muj. WALKER owes to himself as
an officer, to the discipline of his troops, and to
the community which is under his command, to
visit tho severest punishment upon him.
We do hope, that for tho sake of law and order,
and tho reputation of tho service, that this great
indignity to ono of our most respectable and law
abiding citizens, will bo speedily rcdroisod.
Othcrwiso our people will ho forced to protect
their property and premises as best they may.
Wo call upon tho Commanding General to seo
that justice is done in this matter.

OHIO.-It turns out after all, says the New
York Times (Rep)., that, instead of being
light, thc vote last month in Ohio was the
heaviest ever cast. In the counties thus far
officially heard from there is an increase of
about 00,000 over the vote two years ago, of
which tbe Democrats gain forty and thc Re
publicans twenty thousaud. Tbe theory that
the Republicans stayed at home, therefore,
wilt not answer. They have evidently in a
good many cases voted the other way ; and
ot the new voters who have come into the
Held within the last two yours, thc Democrats
have got more than their equal share. The
" reaction" is more decided than it seemed to
be at first.
FATAL ACCIDENT AND HONORABLE CONDUCT.
We clip the following paragraphs from the
Yorkvillo Enquirer, of the 24th instant:
About 12 o'clock, on the 15th inst., Mr.
David Porter, ol' Limestone Springs, was en
gaged in blasting rock, in connection with
the mining operations. Ile had proparcd a
blast and moved off to ihe proper distance,
but to thc front of the blast, instead of the
tear, as is usual. Thc blast exploded, when
a fragment of stoue, weighing, probably for
ty pounds, struck him between the shoulders,
l?o lingered until 'J o'clock thc same evening,
when he died, the injuries he received having
superinduced lock-law and severe hemorrhage
irom the lungs. The deceased is represented
to us as having been a worthy and industri
ous man, and leaves a wife and seven chil
dren, who were, dependeut upon him for I ub
We are pleased to learn, and to record tbe
fact, that thc company, wh.i had the deceas

by Mr. J. W. Secrest, gave the sulferer overy

permitted while he lived, and with a Coin
mendable liberality, made a handsome donv
tiou to the widow, for thc support of herself
and children. All houor for this act, which
lor once belies the adage, that "Corporations
have no souls."
THAD. STEVENS ON THE ELECTIONS.-The
Morning l'ont prints the following extract
from a private letter from Thaddeus Steuei s,
on thc late elections :
" Sick as I am, I take th's occasion to thank
God for our late defeat. The Republicans
have been acting a cowardly part, aud have
met a coward's fate."
DtsTKEss ON EDISTO ISLAND.-Th? distress
and destitution among thc negroes on Edisto
Island is so great that they are leaving thc
island aud crossing-to the maiu land by hun
dreds in search of employment. We learn
that a large rice planter, a few days ago, em
ployed thirty abled bodied men at thirty cents
per day, and they find themselves, and re
ceived one hundred additional applications
from other able bodied negrees willing to work
on the same terras, but whom he was unable
to employ.-Charleston Mercury.

CLAY-LOCAL MANUFACTURES.- At this
moment lar>re shipments of clay are made
from South Carolina to the North. This is
chiefly drawn from the neighborhood of Ai
ken, in the District of Barnwell. This clay
is employed for a variety of purposes, being
of superior and peculiar texture, lt is used
in statuary, in the manufacture of porcel vin,
of soap, and even in ihc sizing of cloth. The
question occurs to us, says thc Mci airy, why
should not the manufacturers come to Ihe
raw material? Here is, not only clay, but
ibo fuel, and thc water power in abundance.
Wc have no doubt that tbe manufacture
would spring up here-as is the obvious poli
cy which seems to have resolved, not only
that thc South shall do nothing for itsolf, Lut
that it shall remain a perpetual incubus upon
