Vice Eegent for South Carolina.
We noticed in our previous number the
appointment of Mrs. Mary Chesnut as
Vice Eegent for South Carolina. Since
then, some few facts in reference to this
venerable and interesting lady have come
to our knowledge, which will, we doubt
not, interest our readers.
Mrs. Chesnut was the daughter of Col.
John Cox, of the Quarter Master's De?
partment in the Revolutionary Army,
and of Miss Boes, (we are not positive
that we spell it correctly.) of New York.
For some years previous to the Revolu?
tion, Col. Cox was a merchant residing in
Philadelphia. About the time of the war,
he removed to a beautiful country-seat
on the Delaware, near Trenton, called
Blbomsbury; but his health failing, in
1790 he returned to Philadelphia, where
he died in 1793. He was always esteem?
ed as a patriot and man of integrity and
courage; he was a friend of Gen. Wash?
ington's, and in habit of frequent social
intercourse with him. Although for six?
ty-three years a resident of South Caroli?
na. Mrs Cbesnut's early life was passed
3u Kev father's conntry-seat of Bloomsbu
Jv: und it was while residing there, that
ti.. incident occurred to which wo have
before referred, of her being one of those
"Who welcomed General Washington at
Trenton Bridge. Col Cox's removal to
Philadelphia took place during the ses?
sion of the first Congress; and Mrs.
Chesuut, then Miss Cox, was in the habit
of attending Mrs. Washington's drawing
room receptions, and alwtvys on those oc?
casions having a few words with General
Washington himself. She speaks of hav?
ing.met him, for the last time, at a com?
plimentary ball given him on his birthday
in 17%. It is a singular and touching
coincidence, which has thus made this
venerable lady the connecting link be?
tween the past and the present, and placed
her as one of that baud of patriotic wo?
men whoare endeavoring to perpetuate
the memory of their country's Father in
. the hearts of the American people, and
on?presiding over aState which is remark?
able ibr the heroism of its revolutionary
women, who earned their patriotism so
far, that when the British held possession
of Charleston they clad themselves in
mourning!?Mount Vernon Record.
ViuuiNiA Legislature?Extra Ses?
sion.?Gov. Letchcr, of Virginia, has de?
termined to convene the Legislature of
that State oil the 4th of January next.
The immetfiate occasion tor this an?
nouncement is nothing more than the ar?
rangement of the aiVa'irs of the James
River and Kanawha Company.
Nevertheless, says the Richmond En?
quirer, it is possible that the Legislature,
on assembling, will find even more serious
-work to do?to which the following ex?
tract from Gov. Letcher's inaugural mes?
sage of January last, may furnish a sug?
"The- 'irrepressible conflict' doctrine, an?
nounced and advocated by the ablest and
most distinguished leader of the Republi?
can party, is an open declaration of war
against the institution of African slavery
w berever it exists, and I would be disloy?
al to Virginia and the South, if I did not
declare that the election of such a man.
entertaining such sentiments and advoca?
ting such doctrines, ought to be resisted
by the slaveholding States. The idea of
permitting such a mau to have the con?
trol and'direction of the army and navy
of the United States, and the appoint?
ment of high judicial and executive offi?
cers, postmasters included, cannot be en?
tertained, by the South for a moment."

To the Voters .of Anderson District:

Toters of the District generally, that I should make
a response to the announcement. At the close of
my last canvass, I stated publicly that I did not
expect to be again a candidate, and my purpose
remained unshaken until December last, when my
situation was in many respects greatly changed?
owing to my misfortune, which is known to the

perhaps, the oldest citizen of this town?have al?
ways resided here, and hope that my boues may

from my fellow-citizcn3, and have tried to discharge
the trust they have so long confided to me with
courtesy, zeal and Btrict fidelity. My past services
and performance in the oflico is the best guarantee
I can offer the District for a faithful discharge of
its duties in the future. Many voters, therefore,
and my friends generally, are authorized to use my
name as a candidate for re-election.

and General Intelligence. Without any party re?
straints, and free from individual control, it is to
be Independent in all things?neutral in none,
and with this motto, we hope so to conduct our
columns as will best encourage and foster the good,
while we shall condemn and reprove the evil.
Xor shall we neglect the family circle. It is our
purpose to make the HERALD a welcome visitor,
and full of wholesome rending for the old and the
young, the lady and the gentleman. In these at?
tempts we shall need the assistance of the Indies,
and we ask them now to give us a word, suited to
sex and circumstances.
As an advertising medium, we present the
HERALD to the public, us enjoying equal facilities
with our country cotemporaries.
