Wo arc pained'to learn of the death,
at Abbeville, on Sunday morning, of
Judge Da\id L. Wnrdlaw, long known
iu this State as a learued lawyer, errti
ncut jurist, and accomplished gentle
man. Wo have no particulars as yet,
and only infer that his death was the
sequence of protr.iotud weak health,
which manifested itself more particular
ly in one or two paralytic strokes within
tlio past two years. Ibis no little loss,
that of a man trusted aud honored
throughout a- long and busy Ufe in
exalted- and responsible positions, and
always oq.ua! to the highest' expectations
A great amir good man has gone, leaving
the memory of good* deeds, honest and
valuable services to his State and people,
and the fragrance of a character pore,
unsullied and amiable in all the rcla
'ribnw of* lifo. The following is a brief
biography of tho dArcCahcd Judge :
"Judge David Louis Wardlaw was
born in Abbeville Ccutity, in 1791), and
was at the limo of his death seventy
four years old. At an oarly age he
entered the SouOh Carolina- College,
where he graduated With? dietri ngirished
honors. After leaving college, he was
admitted to tlie bar, and' iu-1?82'1 at
tained considerable distinction in the
case of Ramsay v?. Marsh', which arose
under the will of Henry Laurcns, and
lip which the s atute of uses and trusts
was first construed in this State. At
that time he was a co-partner of the late
Governor Noble lu December, 1830,
be was elected Speaker of tho llou?o of
Representatives, of which he bad-becu
a member (for several \ear-, and ho cou
tinuod to serve in this position, with
distinguished ability, until December,
1811, when be was elected to the bench,
lo succeed Judge Johnson. His career
on the bench is well known in every
part of the State, It continued for over
a quarter of a century, and was ever
marked by those ennobling trails of
mind and heart which tendod so much
to elsvatc aud dignify the judiciary of
South Carolina in tho palmy days of her
history. Jrt speaking of one of bis
opinions, an annotator to one of tho late
editions of Chancellor Kent uses these
words: 'Tho opinion of Justice Ward
law is singularly learned and interest
ing ; it is a remarkable example of his
torical legal erudition.' Ho was, iu all
the relations of life, a man ol uuswerv.
ing integrity and elevated sentiment, and
by his death has been removed another
one of those laud-marks which bind us
to all that is good und glorious in the
past history of our State."?Columbia
The LiiltCMt Horror.
Tile sensation of the day and hour,
the all absorbing topic of conversation
at street eorners, in the Hotels, bar
rooms, and all places where men most
do congregate, i:< the murder of Mans
field Tracy Walworth by his sou, aged
niueteen years. The Foster cose has
passed out of people's minds. Stokes is
forgotten for the time being, aud tho
public alt ent ion is ingulfed :vUl Coil

father slain by bis sou.
THE MUHITRRKI) MAN
was* an author of some repute; his best
productions being "Warwick," "Lulu,"
"Hotspur," 8t*tt? C1MT," "Delsflaine,"
and "Beverly/' At the time of his
death he was engaged in writing "Mar
ried in Mask," for the New York Week

Chancellor Wulworth, a shiuing light of

Perhaps you don't know Perkins.?
1'or kins is an agriculturist. Mo is
disgracefully ignorantofnatur.il history,
but he takes a deep interest in the sub
ject of manures, and the moment you
say anything about fertilizers,-Perk ius
pricks up his cars and begins to enjoy
himself. The other day ho read in s mi >
ode of the newspapers that Prof. Agassis
had taught a specimen of the iguana to
como to him at the ?otind- of music. It
struck Perlt ins at the time ava rather
singular phenomenon, but He believed
in the newspapers, and ho determined to
see what lie could do iu that direction.
So Perkins rook his accordion and went
down to the barn aud sut in front of a
bag of guano, and began to squeeze out
"A Life on the Ocean WaVe aud a
'Home on the Holling Beep/' He"did
- this thrco or lour times, and still the
guano did not move. Then ho began
iagain and mashed out a lot of variations
to tho tune. But the g?arto bag uiaui
tested no disposition to come to him.?
I'heu he made mother effort, and inter
I jected exercises and fragments of tho
j scales into "A Life on the Ocedn Wave
aud a Home ou the Rolling Deep" aod
I spurted in a parcel of extra sharps and
flat; aud he played the uir backwards
! aud sideways and diagonally, and bogau
in tho mid.De and wv.ked towards both
ends, aud iu fused sevoral trills and
modulations, and mixed it up with "Old
Hundred," and "Beautiful Dreamer,'
and fugues, and Gregorian chants, for
four or five hours, aud then ho was taken
to the house by his relations aod nut to
bed. Perkins is now couviriood that bo
was misinformed about AgaMiz, and he
wants to interview the editor that toll
the lie?A(ux Adder.
I find that nino hours ]>.*r day con

a little more than nino on other days./.'
The general experience of the employers
is against increased wage?. They say
that when the men have earned a certain
sum per Week they will not work any
more; in fact, as the wages are increased
the average amount earned e ich week i.?
actually diminished. The wholo matter
seems to the writer to be in a very on
fortunate way in I' nglaud. The relations
of employer and employee, are fur from
what they should be. In fuct there ure
at present two nations iu England, a
woulthy, church-going race, cultivated
and possessing the powurs of government
and reaping the benefit of tho labors of
the working class. There is also an
ignorant, debased nation of men, living
iu the same land, but bitterly hostile to
the other face, having no sympathy in
their religion and Mo share1 in their gov
ernment, which they feel ooly a re* traiut,
but having a govern ...ent of their own.
to which they yield an implicit obedience.
They are acquiring a consciousness of
their own power?dim, perhaps, but
growing?and there are those among the
English who predict before many years a
great conflict between these tWo pctfpScs,
of which one is to day a? hostile to the
other as the South over was to the
North For my fart 1 can see bot one
escape from this condition of things, and
that is iu a general and enforced system
of public education, a thing an English
man docs not seem abio to comprehend,
