In one of our pcrigrinntion a few days
r'Kioc, Vt& encountered n small squad of
travellers whose bourn was the mountain
district of Pickens. Four or five athletic
men, (calculated to "do the Stnte some

children, as blooming ns ai.y country can
produce, formed the party.
JFhnt means this, Old Edgefield? Are
your rtncicnt hills losing their charms'?
Ar? you left behind in the race of improvement??Have
you lost the golden opportunity
of securing the advantages nnd facilities

In the middle and eastern
parts of the District there may
be found tracts six or eight miles
square that have rarely echoed to the
woodman's axe; much of the soil of
these, thouirh thin, lies well, and is
susceptible of high improvement, producing
even now grasses and vines
which afford rich pasturage during
1 nine months in the year. Upon these
i tracts thousands of sheep could be

' expense. Lying here and there along
r the loot of the mountains which compose
the northern portions of the
District, there are many fertile val1

To Correspondents.?To those
who favor us with their; correspon-'

without offence, to say:?Trim your
sentences, compress your thoughts
into as small a compass as possible,
otherwise your communications may
bo too bulky for the columns of a
weekly paper, one of the chief merits
of which, in ihe estimation of most
reader*, is variety. We often reeeivc
communications which are all well
enough with ihe single ex? eption of
their great length, and on this account,
and this alone, are we driven
to the painful necessity of depriving
I ineir writers 01 the pleasure of seeing
themselves in print. It is one thing
to compose a speech which shall do
you credit in a public mC6tiu&, or to
write a whole chapter for a novel,
or an excellent essay for some periodical
of an hundred pages; aud quite
a different thing to write a good
I newspaper article. It would bo well

It is well known that tliere is a diversity
of opinion as to the course South Carolina
oucjlit to lake, in rr-laiioti (o our difficulties
with the General Government. Some, nnd
I trust n large majority, are in favor of separate
State action when the proper time

in conjunction nnd co-operation with
some other of tlio Southern StJiir>? nn#l

the action of Congress, to renew thoir attack
on the institution of slavery, and thereby
knock the last plank from under us nnd

Those are the several contingencies
which divided the members of our late Legislature,
and which are now dividing the

As it is n question of ptinciplo purely and
not of expediency,?'is it is a 3 rent struggle
for libortv and equality and Constitutional

for liberty which history has recorded,
neither the amount involved, nor the nppiebennons
of the consequences, governed

which nerved the soul of John H>inrpden,
and which re-mbed in the establishment

In both instances it was the
right to tax that wns disputed nnd resisted.
n was a nign am: holy regard lo principle

which crowned with success the under

Cotton and Flax. .
Among the many brilliant discoveries
by which Europe wns to be delivered
IrouCi her thraldom to the
Southern States, the latest was that
flax could be worked up by cotton
mills and so bo made a substitute Cor
staple. We took the iunrircstion
for a joke at first, but it appeara that
the English manufacturers have actually
been experimenting. The result
is doleful enough, as may be
galhered from the following rxtract
of the London correspondence of the
National Intelligencer. By the way,
it may be consoling to those in the
North who have been gloating < ver
the ruin that would ensue to the
South on the success of the supposed
discovery, to know that the bark of
cotton stalk makes the finest and
strongest flax, and that if the wool

the authority of the Morning Chronicle,
lhat vciy successful experiments
had been made in the application of

or the neighborhood. The Manchester
