See what the old man says elsewhere
in this week's Advertiser, concerning
his hope of happiness. And although
the desired crowd is his-and moneyed
thousands daily outer his store, and de
part thence moneyless-still we hare
reason to believe that he is yet unhappy.
Nothing will satisfy him but that at least j
a half dozen of his fellow creatures shall |

people, and be trampled-that "Old Man,
Christopher Gray" may be made happy !
Letter from the Mountains.
For the Advertiser.
WALHALLA, S. C., Dec. 12th, 1873.
MR. EDITOR:-Thfeisprobably thelast j
letter that I shall write for the columns
of theold.-?dver?iseT in the year 1873.
When it makes it> appearance in print,
it is likely that the Old Year will be rap
idly drawing to a close, and the New
Year be near at hand. And as the skill
ful mariner, who traverses the trackless
waters of the ocean w^th his ship, occa
sionally takes his "reckoning," that he
may ascertain where he is, how far he
has gone, and whither his craft is head
ing ; -BO it is meet and important, that we,
as individuals, communities, States, or j
countries, being voyagers too on the
great sea of life and ocean of time, should
DOW and then-once a year at least-"cast
about us," review the past, consider the ?
present, and endeavor to forecast some
what the future.
In the midst of the;, amusements and
festivities whick usually usher in Christ
mas-the natal day of the blessed Re
deemer of mankind, and the " Happy
New Year"-the beginning of another j
annual measure of time, let our mirth
and joy be tempered by prudence and
moderadon. While we have great cause
as individuals, as a people, and a nation,
to be thankful to the Supreme Ruler of |
the universe for that goodness and mer
cy, and that loving kindness, with which
wo have been followed during the year,
that is now near its end, and should
evince our gratitude and gladness in eve
ry proper manner, let us mingle there
with sober and solemn reflection, and
shape our actions and fature course in
life in accordance with th?, dictates of
sound reason and the teachings of true J
The year 1873 hus uot been marked in
our own land with any great and start
ting events With the exception of short j
conflicts with the poor Indians in the |
(hr West, no war or bloodshed has visited
our borders. While contending hosts
have met in the shock of battle on the
classic field of portions of Europe, and
the people of France and Spain have suf
fered all the untold horrors and calami
ties of war, we have enjoyed all the
blessings of peace. It is true that por
tions of the great valley of the Missis
sippi have been visited by those terrible
icourges, the cholera and yellow fever;
hut their ravages wore confined to limit
ai sections of the country, and the suf
fering resulting therefrom, though great
md truly distressing, were only tempo
rary. For the mosi part throughout our
extended country, there has been the
.?sual measure of health among its iu
?-bitants ; abundant harvests have gen
erally crowned the labors of the hus
jandman, and apart from the financial
xmvulsion and the temporary evils aria
ng from it iu the great commercial cen
res of the country, the peoplo ol tho
Jin ted States should feel that they are in
he enjoyment of an unprecedented de
cree of prosperity and happiness.
I look upon the financial crash, which
vas doubtless caused by reckless specu
atiou and senseless extravagance, as a
ilcssing in disguise. The greatest mis
ortuue it produced, and the one which
s most to be regretted, is the fact that
he evils and hardships which have at
ended it have fallen most heavily upon
hose who had but little or nothing to do
vith bringing it about.
If no one suffered from a monetary
risis of this kind except the money
unga, wild speculators, and dishonest
tock-jobbersof the great cities, who live
nd fatten off the hard earrings of the
lonest working iueu of tho country, it
vould be no great misfortune to have
ueh a panic every year or two. But uu
ortunately for tho country, from tho
>resent arrangement of things, such can
lever bo the case. So interwoven are
he interests of the farmers and producers
iud the honest trading public with the
)anks, and so great is their dependence
>u them, that when these reckless specu
ators pull down the pillars of tho com
mercial temple, and there is a crash
vhich shakes the commerce of the conn
ry from New York to San Francisco,
hey generally manage to escape from
he ruins without serious injury to them
.elves, while the calamity falls with
?rushmg force upon others.
This panic, or rather such a state of |
nings as it has developed, is to my mind
jut another' argument in favor of the
loctrine which I have long advocated,
tamely, that the Southern people should
?aise less cotton and more provisions
md home supplies, and manufacture
nore of the necessary articles of life
?Vilich they require, that they may be
eas helplessly dependent upon the bank
ers and brokers of Wall Street and other |
.ities. Something had to bo done to
meek the profuse and absurd extrava
gance and the wild speculation and fast
living that were fast ruining the country,
md in this point of view, I look upon
-his convulsion as a public' blessing.
These ovils have not yet become as
prevalent in the South as they aro in the
North, and if our section will now adopt
that policy which our magnificent re
sources, and the touchings of sound po
litical econemy, as well us the dictates of |
common sense, so plainly point out,
when the next financial paine sweeps
over tlio country, we will be compara
tively exempt from its hardships and
The present political condition of South
Carolina, though bud in the extreme, is
by no means a hopeloss one. ? The very
enormity of the evils from which we are
suffi ring is gradually working their cure.
There is a limit to even official corrup
tion and public plunder, and there is
every indication that the part}' in power
in this State have at length roached that
limit. There are now elements within
the Republican party in South Carolina,
which together with thc conservative
agencies und iullueuces that are brought
U> bcur upon lt from without, must either
bring about reform and amendment, or
tho paAy will have to go to pieces and
give way to better men and measures.
Whilo therefore there ls much to sadden
the heart of the patriot In the past and
present condition of the commonwealth,
the future is not entirely devoid of hope,
and taking lessons of wisdom from ex
perience, and scorning to despond or
despuir, let us heed the sulutary admoni
tion of tho fucetious " Bill Arp," and en
dcaver to do the very be*t we can under

desire to effect insurance on their lives in a safe Home Company :
The Board of Managers at a recent meeting passed unanimously the fol
lowing Resolution : j -
" Resolved, That in view of the fact that there are unusually large ?sums
paid for Life Insurance, to the Companies of the North and East, which
sums, being there inve?ed, contribute to the enrichment of those sections,
whilst our own South isgreatly in need of cash capital to prosecute success
fully our Agricultural aid Mechanical enterprises ; it is ordered, that for
the purpose of retaining these sums in our midst, hereafter a certain pro
portion of the net cash receipts from premiums, amounting to not more ?han
70 per cent, of the sami be invested in such manuer as may be in accord
ance with the regulations of the Company,, in those sections from which the
said premiums are attained."
