On the first page can be found the proceeding*
of the muss meeting at WiUia'inston last

the speeches made on that occasion. The efforts
of Messrs. Keitt ami Our bear the impress

Tho Beech Island Speech.
The Charleston Mcrcur;/, in a brief para

that the report of Senator Hammond's late
speech, given in its columns, does not correctly

his opinions and positions.
The points made, we understand, were correctly

What Does it Mean*
"We were not a little surprised to find the
following paragraph in a late number of the
Pendleton M:?icn<jcr. Speaking of his visit
t.) Willhunston, the editor says:
"Enough has been already said about the
Southern people running to Northern watering
places, instead of visiting those in our
own sunny South. Oh 1 they are so inaccessible.
Papa, do lot us go to Saratoga! We

The Next Governor.
Naturally enough the people are casting
ahout for a suitable man to fill the Executive ;

of " good men and true," have been made;

that of (ion. Harrison-, of Anderson. Fitted j

urging his claims to an office, which would

It 1ms boon stated that the amount appropriated
for the present fiscal year is $100,000,000,but
this is not true; and, moreover,
the authority to spend does not make an expenditure.

000,000, with the additional sum of $2,430,- j
000 authorized by a general law to bo ex pen- ;
ded in the collection of tho revenue, if so !

of $70,450,000, but it is not to bo presumed
that this amount must be expended merely
because it has been appropriated by Congress,

Tho undersigned would respectfully ask
for public altcntion to tho following facts :
J Jus ill ess letters are almost invariably
sent in envelopes, ami in tracing out losses
or miscarriage# it is always important to
ascertain the precise day of inr.iliiig at tho
point where tho letter was written. In
many cases lie has found the letter itself to
have been carefully preserved, while tho
envelope has been lost, and thus every cs
scntial information is forever destroyed.
The uxdorsignod would therefore suggest
that wheucvor letters arc of such nature
as to he matters of "reference" after
their reception, they had better be folded,
scaled and forwarded as formerly, without
envelopes, the original sheet hearing the

from that city to the 3d of July. One <>f
its correspondents writes:
The army arrived qu Saturday, occupying
ten hours in it.s passage through the city to
the camp beyoiui the Jordan. The advanced
guard, connnnndcd by Brevet Col.
.Smith of the lUth infantry, consisted of
('apt. Pc.Saussure's company of tho 1st
cavalry, Oapt. Marcy's of the 5th infantry,
and ('apt. (lardnc-'s of the 10th, and a section

advance. (.Jotu Johnston was attended only ^
bv his regular stuff, and by the commissioners,
who rode out from the city nt an
early hour to meet him.
The advance emerged from Emigration
canon about 7 i o'clock, and after a brief
halt on the beech dircetly abovo the city,
descended into the streets and pursued a .
it route toward the .Jordan, winch led io
past Brighton Young's mansion and the *
Lion House, the Council House, the Temple
square and the houso of W. C. Staines,
nt which (Governor Cumming is a guest.?
It was followed by the 10th infantry, I'ln/lps'
battery, the f)th infantry, lteno's battery,
Colonel boring's battalion, (consisting of
companies of the (itli and 7th infantry au<l
of the mounted riflemen,) Col. Hec'svolun
tool-battalion and tho 2d dragoons. Kacli I
regiment and b. ttalion was followed l\v its
wagon train. The sun was just setting

street, were struck by the Mormons during
the passage of the troops. Most of the men
who had been attracted from the Fov.th by
curiosity, watched the procession through
the cracks between the boards with which
their windows were barricaded. The city
seemed as dead as on the day our little party
of Gentiles entered it a fortnight ago. The
only groups of visible spectators were on
(be corner near tho IVmplo square.
A correspondent of tho Herald says: Tlio
Mormons wore greatly surprised at the vast
number of wugonsdonnocted with thiarmy.
ICaeh division was followed by its wagons ;
so there was a body of troops and then an
immense line of wagons, which were driven

Dense eloudw of dust wore raised
by the advance of the wagons, the men
perspiring with labor arid the heat, and enveloped
by the dust; their faces covered
with sweat, were recontcd with dust, till
they looked as black as tho oarth upon which
tlioy trod. I ho .Mormons greatly pii111
ired the military bands, particularly tho
excellent one pertaining to tlic tcntli infantry.
Not a man left the ranks in passing
titrough tho city; not a stick nor stone
belonging to Ziot) was touched; the army
passed through it as hastily as possible, and
then shook the dust from off their feet by
loaning into the Jordan for a bath, which
every man of thciu needed.
On Tuesday, the 20th ult., thennuy, under
Col. Anderson, the senior officer prcnont,
struck their tents and moved up tho
Jordan (.southward) ten miles. On tins
JJUth, the inarch was resumed, hut directed
west to what aro here called the West
Mountains?that is the mountains on tho
west side of this vallev. 'Tho nrniv is now
encamped at tho foot of said mountains,
some twenty miles distant.
In a few days the army will move down
to Cedar Valley, about forty mihs south
and west from this place, ami ten miles
west of Levi. It will probably winter thero
and in the adjacent vnllcvs. Cedar Valley
is beyond the Jordan river and lies be
tweon the foot of the first and tho body of
tho second mountain west of this valley.
Tho Mormons have begun, U>jrcturn to
their homes; numbers hare alrenctyurei*-ved
in this city, nnd others arc on the way.
Hri^ham and lleber Kimball arrived dny
before yesterday ; their families arrived yesterday.
Within n week, it is expected that
the major part of the population of this city
will have returned. Whether we (lontile.s

a month ngo, but were prevented by n
movement of the nriuy, an tliey considered,
contrary to the binding promise of tho commissioners.
Bald movement destroyed
their confidence in the execution of the nrrangement
that had been completed ; so
they determined to remain south till the.
army passed, so as to sec what would be
done, by it.
