The Postmaster at Anderson informs
tliat our paper failed to reach (hat oflieo las!
week, and attempts to "throw the blame on"
us. Wo arc not so certain where it- should
rest, but regret the failure. Our recollection
is that wo lodged the package for that town,
(a very large one) in the post oflieo here properly
directed. That it should have failed to
reach its destination (distant twenty-eight
miles) is rather mysterious, bnt to complain
is worso than useless.
The Newberry College.
The Mirror announces the laying the corner
stone of the Lutheran College, at that
place, with app^Opriatb ceremonies. Addresses
were delivered by Messrs. IIkkrv Summer,
Kev. Mr. Br antlby, Dr. Bachman and
A. C. Garmngton. Although this institution
was not located at Walhalla, where, in
ju common justice it snouiti Have been, yet,
wo nevertheless wish it tho greatest success,
and commend it to the patronage of its denominational
friends and the public generally.
Tho Kansas question?whether that territory
shall bo a free or slave Stato, the policy
of tho President, and tho official conduct of
Gov. Walker?i? now exciting the public
mind throughout tho country, and is being
discussed, with much latitude, by all parties.
In our own Stato particularly, it is the subject
of lougthened aud frequent editorial discussion.
Thus far, however, it has been
pointless; but has had the effect of forming,
imperfectly perhaps, ucw party lines. And
in doing this, in our humble iudtrment. tho
public weal lias not been bottcred.
Tho question j\t issue appears to bo this:
shall tho constitution of Kansas, which in
Hoon to be framed by ber constitutional convontiou,
be submitted to the people of that
territory for ratification or rejection? Thin, it
is claimcd, is surrounded by the conduct oi
AVamcek, and tbo policy of tbc Administration.
And on each of these wc shall have a
word to sny.
There 5" noiliir.pr, in f?vV*"vtt!Gpjthc eo^stitntion
to tho people for their ratification or rejection,
that Hi.juld alarm tho public mind,
Thore is precedent, in the action of Hovcrftl
of the States, for thin course. .Besides, in n
free country, where majorities rule, it is n
right that the States, whether it is to then
interest or not, cannot call in question. The
truth is, moreover, that the people of Kansas
are almost unanimously in favor of submitting
their constitution for ratification or rejection;
and, when such is the caao, who.ha*
the right to complain ? The course of Gov
Wai.kbu doos not meet our approbation. IU
was appointed to administer tho lawn of the
territory as he found them, and not to dirtb?fi<
to the people of that territory their future
lino of policy. In this he erred, aa did the
President and hia cabinet in endorsing his
conduct. But, as wo hnvo before paid, wc
beliovo Kansas will be a slave State. A majority
of her citizens, nt least, have so docided,
and it is alone for them to determine.
AVc do not think that agitation can serve
the South, or advance her interests, in any
way, in connection with /his question ; hence,
wo feel callcd upon to oddoso ir. Eaneoinllv

White Water Falls.
.A recont liurriod visit to these beautiful
falls, which arc surrounded with wUdenchautiiig
sconorv, has more than ever convinced
U8 that tlioy are not properly appreciated
! by thn plcaMiro-scokin;* public. The reason
| of thirt is probably to bo found in the fact,
that their beauties, with the advantages of a
delightful sumniqreliinatc, aro comparatively
unknown to tho<?c ut a distance.
'J'ho lower falls are situate in tho western
portion of Pickens district, twenty miles above
the Court House, rind may be reached by one
of '.ho best roads in the country. The stream
(White Water river) is n largo one, and fulls
ovcrnl hundred feet, by a succession of ensci'dus
that arc beautiful beyond description.
They are surrounded, too, with tho most gorgeous
mountain scenery. The whole, forming

The upper falls, on the same stream, arc a
few miles above, in North Carolina. They
are perpendicular, of great height, and arc
truly grand and awe-inspiring. On the way
i to these fain, a splendid view of the line of
the Blue Hid go Railroad, some twenty-five
miles distant, can be obtained.

Is Home Talent Appreciated?
We like the ring of the metal in the paragraph
which follow*. Speaking of the nomination
of Judgo Brown, as a candidate foi
Governor of Georgia, tho True Carolinian
" To many of our citizens he is well known,
and very many express great gratification at
hi* success. This is as it should he, and we
are really gratified to know that there aro places
where a man i.s regarded as competent tc
t ho discharge of the highest duties of life before
his heau has beconio silveredo'er by age.
Wo wish it was so here, but it is hoping aguiust
liopo. Had Judge Drown remained as
a citizen of this State, notwithstanding his
ability, he would have been compelled to remain
in comparative obscurity until death
had made way for him by removing boiuc of
our ageil office holders, or until fortune had
favored him to snob a dogrco as would hove
enablod him to have a larger and more costly
levee than any other man in tho State. It has
truly been said that " a prophet in not without
honor, save in his own country," and the
truth of the saying is manifested in the eases
of many who have been forced to exile themsolvos
from the State of South Carolina."
There is 0110 other custom among uh, although
now passing awav, which has proved
fatal to the aspirations of worthy and competent
young men. This is tho struggling for
and holding-on to office by men whose days
arc apparently numbered, and whom o'ficc
oanuot benefit in any way. Where they arc
successful, it has tlie cffcot of dispiriting
young men, perhaps every way as well qualified,
and, as in many instances which have
occurrod, driving from the Stato its best talent.
The people should look to this and apply
f Chancellor Dargan.
We leavn from tho last l'atriot that the
monibors of the liar at Greenville, on Satur

Gov. Walker and the Administration.
Wo have not united in tho denunciation
of Mr. Buchanan's Administration in relation
to (iov. Walker, for several reasona.
In tho first place, we believe the Administration
elected by the South, with a majority
of Southern men in it?and with tho
Constitutional pledges of Mr. Buchanan,
carried out strictly so far in other onset.?
Will I1UI JUU.ru iu*uu in iiiuH^viuniu iw mu

South in so clearly in the at^iiohdnnt claim- |S
ingonly a strict ndhcfcuoo tc^tlid'Conntitutiou?and
especially at a period when on
the great question, the aescision of the
highest legal tribunal upholds her views so
triumphantly before the world. Tho Ad- I
ministration seleuted a Southern man in I
j principle, to settle the vexed question j it
1 was generally 'understood among Mr. Walker's
friends that he was in favor of bringing
in Kansas as a pro-slavery State?his tu
orthordoxy on the slave question while in
the United State.* Senate was never questioned?and
while his colleague in the
i House votod for tho reception of Aboiitior*
t petitions, he voted for their instantaneous
He wok sound ou tliis question then.?
When Mr. Tyler was President, he was
instrument.!! in sliding him in such mciifures
as brought Texan into the Union ; and
how diil she exhibit her appreciation of his
HCrvicefc:?by placing his statue in lier
-'Capital. When Mr. Van Pureu declared
against Texas, did not his friend, Robert
Walker, declar<v against him, and wan
he not the means of making Polk President L
in consequence ? While Secretary of the
Treasury, what more zealous advocate of J
free trade had we in the country, and what
did hii* reports afl'eet in (Irent Britain ??
with such antecedents the Administration
was ftilly justified in confiding to him this '
delicate mission. 1
That the policy of tho Administration
I was in favor of submitting tho constitution
I to the people is not with the South a sufliI
eient ctixitg brlli-?it h not unconstitutional
to do so?it is not anti-Houthern?it is not
anti-republican. It has been done in many
eases, and we have no reeson to complain
of the Adnitnistration for upholding it..?
That the Administration approves of tho
manner of Mr. Walker's recommending
how the people shimld doit, is another matter?we
do not believe they can approve bin
course in giving his opinion on that subject,
but on the main question we see no
cause why they should repudiate him.
The Democratic party, no one denies,
opened Kansas to tho South?it repealed
tins Missouri Compromise to uivo "quality

people of the South gone in aivd 'possessed

done half our share of duty in colonizing

to lootitc in the territory and take posses- %

young men to fight for u? thero, and they

how ninny have returned home ? JIow

South had done it.s duly and Occupied the
land l>y settling it with owiioffl of a few
slaves, wo could out-vote Gov. Walker and
overrule any nnd all his mistaken views in
the submission of the question to the people.
What is the uao.of the farce of adopting
a Constitution now if n majority in
Against it? What good can there result in
adopting a Constitution but by the votes of
those who mean to occupy tho land? If
tho South means to do anything, why is it
not moving? Why are not joint stock
companies' raised to purchase Jnnd and send
settlers as the Emigrant Aid Societies are
charged with doing? In short, why has
not the South sent voters there to carry the
