The' United States has been caucus- 0
:iddon to such an extent sine the war, a
ha'm 14 is a great relief to everybody n
that Ciigress is not in session, unsoru- I
pilhus p irty leaders, who dolight in a
hLri fe, would before now have "set fire
to the Northern heart" over the con.
servative victory in Virginia, and 0
postponed still longer the day of peacO b
that now promises to dawn upon the
South. In this long Congressional re- -r
oess, however, publio opinion has had o
a fair opportunity to form itself calm
ly ; evo the partisan press, having lost
the Congressional caucus cue, has Ox
pressed indepenslent opinions, and con- u
servative influences will have gathered o
each head by Decembor, that radical
caucuses will astsemble to hatch hatred, 9
for, onoe, in vain. Our Government 1
will have been restored upon "the I
will of the majority should be the law
of the land" prinoplo, and our coud.
try will run a career of material devel
opment, grandour and glory, hitherto e
We somatime ago wrote, that we d
had no faith in this new democratic I
principle of the wisdom of the majori
ty, and no hope of the future based I
upon it. We now wish to modify that 1
opinion: we have hope, in the spread q
of intelligence, in a free press, and in
the magnitude and extent of the na
tion. The danger is in being eaucut
ridden and over-governed. But see- d
Ing that the nation has evidently shak
en off the caucus incubus during the
last three months, so that Congress
will bold its caucuses on reoonstruo
tion, next winter, in vain, why may a
not the same thing recur ? The coun- d
try is largo, the press is free, and t
publio opinion has unusual facilitiest
for making itself known and respected. a
In a free press there is still a great
deal to build faith and hopo upon.
Lot the dead past., then, bury its dead,
and lot every true lover of his country n
address himself to the task of break- c
ing up cliques and oaucusos, and
giving the simple majority govern
monts, both State and Federal, that

A Most Excellent Law.

our other distinguished rppresenta

The following news itom in your lo.
al column, of the 27th ult., has just
con called to my attention :
"A CASE OF SEDuCTION-JVST RE
RIBUTIo.-Ruimors wore current oi
ur streets, yesterday, that a justly
ucensed brother had avenged the
rrongs of a sister, in the slaying of
he man who had betrayed her confi
ene. As the circumstance comes to
s, the family of the young lady con
orned ranks among the most respoet
ble of Edgofield District. The do
igning and suocossful villian who hgs
trought her ruin is represented to
avo boon a young man who formerly
ived in Augusta-J. D. Oresswell.
V are advised that this young man
onducted a farm in the neighborhood
!' the family, to which allusion has
soon made, and that he had beon wel
oniod into the most intimate asso
iation with the father, brother and
aughters. Every facility in their
ower had boon choorfully afforded to
ontribute to his matorial interests,
nd to promote his social enjoyment.
lo had boen treated rather as a
iember of the fa mily than as an ac
unititance, and such bad been his
coming honorable deportment that
*o breath of suspicion was stirred
gainst him until his basoness and
erfidy culminated in the-ruin of a
aughtor of the household. Stung to
sporation, the brothers, who had

too confiding but loved sister, 'and

"An affair of a very serious natqre

SAiE OF A LAnGI. PLANTING INTER
EsT IN SUMTEit DIST iF.--The Sumter
We' are-informed that two English
gentlemen, Messrs. John B. Rogers and
Juhn Owens, have purchased from Mr.
T. C. Richardson the Bloomhill planta
tion, about 4,000 acres. Bloonhill is a'
few miles from Manchester, on the Wa
teree River. It is a place of considera.
ble historical interest. During the revo
tion it was owned by Gon.. Wm. Rich
ardson, .. nd was the headquarters of
Gen. Greene, also, at diferent periods,
of Gens. Cornwallis and Rawdon. A
body of tories was attacked by patriots
at Shank's Greek, in the neighborhood.
During the recent war it was at this
place that the flag of truce reached Gen.
Potter, and terminated hiostilities, just
in time to save another useless battle.
We regret to sea these fine posses
sions passing ouit of the hands of our
own people. But when they must go
we are pleased to know that they are
pu,-chased by substantial men, who will
probably haye thie will and energy to
turn them to good account.

FinE OF FAnss.--The conclusion to
iwhieh our observation on this sub.
eoct has ld us, may be thus stated :
1. In grain growing the farm 1,
lhould be of a size to justify the pur- a
ishase of all the best implements : 100 A
cres is not enough for this. The
nost profitnble farms are several hun. b
lIred acres in area. a
2. Grass farms of fi om 100 to 200 I
teres are profitable, but there are not
he same reasons for a large area in
rrazing farms as in grain growing.
3. In small fruit culture and in
ruokiug the doctrine "ton aores
mnough" is not a fallacy.
4. No man has any reason to plume n
inself on a wide stretch of exhaust- &
id soil. The only true pride of acres I
s fe't by him who leaves his patrimo
ly, whether ten acres or a thousand,
leeper in soil, freer of wends and P
itonos, better supplied with the food 0
if all the important plants, stocked e
vith more animals and better blood '
han he found it.

Wednesday inorning, while pouring 0
oil from a hkerosene can, was burned g
o badly by the explosion of the can s4

The Savannah Republican ridicules
he idea of presenting Jefferson DavisA
vith a pitiful ten acres and a spion- 01
lid mansion as a permanent home.
'If thec Southern people," it says, I]

nako him and his family comfortable, h
et thonm present hinm with a large ~
nod well improved estate, on which he4
an live in style befitting his charac- h

ay up something for those who are to a

ipality, and a quarter million is not
.0o much for that purpose." -s
A Southern correspondent of the ,
ow York World, after discussing the
ispect of the immigration movement
o this section, adds : "The native in. "
