In the hot tor days of our couu'ry, when the

of her public servants, t ho most distinguished
sons of South Carolina looked upon tho Chief
Magistrate of the Blaie as tlio goal of their
highest auibitiou, and iho best reward of their
public scvviecs. If men of whom Carolina is
jufcily proud held in such deserved estimation
the distinction of being thought worthy by
their fellow-cilizena of the highest otlicc in
lliegift of the Siuio in the days of her prosperity
and pence, hotv much more highly
should 1 esteem the honor you have done me
by cnlling mo unanimously to lead you in
this hour of j,looin and of peril? You arc
struggling for the highcbt stake tor which a
people ever cvntcndeu, for you are striving
to brins back to vonr n ?irnin <i.a .<
93timublc blessings which can only follow
orderly and regulated liberty, under l'reo und
good govorittt ent.
We believe that these blessings oan ouly
be secured by a complete change in the administration
of our publio affairs, National

and our interests load us naturally and inevitably
into alliauoo with that great parly,

some 60 or more ncrcs of excallent bottom, *,
with several hundred norcs of upland. The

and ordinarily yield prolific crops of corn,

of tho Juno freshet, those fertile landa
will scarcely yichl a full half crop.

Anderson thus sdiowod considerable sagacity

every oilier year with small grain, wheat,
