Tho Constitution of tho "Touchers' Asso- j

Wo arc indebted to C'\Y." for the cxtraet ;
from the Knoxvillc paper. AVe may liavo occasion

to the lllue llidgo Kailrond in this

the effect of drawing together a larger rum- ;

The candidates wore busy, each one appearing
sanguine of success. The canvass
is being conducted, on all sides, with less excitement.

Tlio pleasure has recently been afforded us j
of paying n short visit to this beautiful vil- I

Until recently, there were five stores in the
town. Now there are four, with the prospect
of another being opened in a short time.?
Messrs. A. S. Strphkns & Co. havo in operation
hero a successful carriage manufactory
from which they are turning out many durable,
as well as handsomely finished, vehicles.
Other mechanical shops, useful and noccssary
to thfi growth of a town, flourish here.
In tho immediate neighborhood, we learned
there was a mineral spring, which wan drawing
to it many persons, seeking relief from its
healing or curative powers. It is on the premises
of Mr. Clevkland, and deserves to he
properly tested. We were unable to aseer*
tain the character of the mineral, with which
the water ia impregnated.

One cotton field, marked here and

near as tho eyo, could guido u.s, about one
iiu ml rod acres I It was in line growing con

led to mention tho size of this "cotton patch,"
from tho fact that sonic at a distance think
that Pickens is altogether a mountainous district,
adapted to nothing hut tho cnlturo of
grain, and tho rearing of stock. Such is not
the fact, as tho exports of our farmers and
idantcrs nhundantlv show. Onn vrini* if nnr
memory is not greatly at fault, one of our
largest planters raisc<l considerably over one
hundred bales of cotton in the district!
The Geological, Mineralogical and Agricultural

An attempt was made sowo time ago to or- |

of Mr. BuchaS'an. It was to bocomposodop

of snppbintinir tho democratic navtv. and (lis

For convonienco, and the hotter to secure i
their xuceess, iiu platform of principles was
laid down. As might reasonably be expected
the South, nml we believe the entire country,
has repudiated the whole thing. Efforts |
may be nmrto hereafter to form and infuse
life into lite hybrid, but it will us certainly
fail of its purpose.

has from time to time divided and distracted
the councils of the South, and shall oppose

senator Hammond's Speech.
j Wo have transferred to our first page an
i abstract of Gov. Hammond's speech, delivered
at tbo Hooch Island dinner. Although it
is not fully reported, vet, it is sufficiently ko,
to be understood. His positions havo been i
I taken without reerard to the nnimons hold liv I
others, ami will most probably bo ncqniesccd
in by the people of the State. They meet
in tho main with our hearty approval, and
we commcml their consideration to our readon?.
Senator Hammon d makes the following
distinct points in his speech, whien wo publish
for tho benefit of the reader, as well as
r..n r.itnvn .
1. Ho believos that the battle of the South)
may bo successfully fought in the Union?that i
the South may by unanimity rule in the future j
:ih in the past. '2. That n dissolution of the |
; Union per ?c is not a desirable thing. 8. That!
I there i? at this time no significance in the disI
tinction attempted to bo drawn between "Nution!
nl" and "State Rights" Democrats. 4. That I
| the South now stands rectus in <'itria before the !
j world?that herpceulinr institution at this time !
j occupies high and secure ground, under thccgiu I
j of the Government, ft. 'i'liat cordial affiliation |
j wiiii I ho t rue men of the North isouv policy and j
' our duty?that with thorn wo should stand
J "ulic.uUler to shoulder." ('?. That i: is Southern
j policy to have naught to do with Ollibustcring
' schemes. 7. That tUc revival of tlio foreign |
slave trade is a project of doubtful expediency,
and altogether visionary and impracticable.
