of my health.

part of those officially connocted with tho Court,
to render all possible assistance in the early pre

Chancellor. But your request comes to me with
the foroe of an order.

To the Reverend Clergy of the Oily of Charleston :
This Association his been formed for the pur
pose of filmitjliitig ucedle-work to the industrious
and suffering of our sox. Wo indulge the belief
that it will, in time, be mado self-sustaining?tho
plan being to sell tho ready-made clothing at
prices to reimburse the Society for the coBt of
materials and the expenaos of workmanship. It
is obvious, however, that to put this plan into
execution, some money is absolutely necessary at
the commencement ; material must be bought,
and work paid for, before a stock of clothing can
bo accumulated and offered for sale. To meet
theso requirements, the aid of tho benevolont is
respectfully solicited, and you are carnoatly re
quested to present the claims of the Association
to your congregations. Contributions in money
and materials will ho thankfully received. Opera
tions havo already been commenced, and the
applications for work greatly exceed our means of
As far as these operations have extended, thore
is every encouragement given to persevere. The
plan meets with general approbation. It affords
relief by giving employment. The results of the
last two weeks' operations of the Association we
subjoin, as follows :

Tue Charleston Book, a Miscellany In Prose and
Verso. Charleston : Published by Satuuol Hurt, Hr.,
King ?trcot, 1845. I
The publisher has kindly sent us a copy of tho
aforementioned old bjok, and will accept our
Mr. Wm. Gilmore SiMMHia understood to bo
tho compiler of this book, though his name does
not appear. In his proface, ho says :
Tho miscellany which follows is compiled entire
ly from tho writings of native or resident citizens
of Charloston. Tho sources of tho compilation
are not those of professional authorship. The
writers of tho South aro persona, gcuorally, of
other professions and pursuits. What is dono
among us, in a literary point of view, is the work
of tho amateur, a labor of stealth or recreation,
employed as a relief from othor tasks and duties.
From this fact the reader will be able to account
for that air of didactic gravity, that absence of
variety, and of tho study of artistical attributes,
which would not strike him so obviously had the
sources of the onlleotion beon found in the moro
various fields of a national literature. Ho will
discover, however, that in most of the pieces
which follow, there is a liveliness of fancy,. a
fluency of expression, and a general readiness of
resource, indicating such a presence of the imag
inative faculty, as leaves no doubt of the capacity
of the community, from which the work is drawn,
to engage with groat success in tho active pur
suits of literature Should this little miscellany
contribute, in any degree, to bring about a result
so vory desirable, the reward of tho publisher will
The table of contents presonta a lino array of
names of talont and distinction in every walk of
life. Washington Allston and Charles Fraser
both contribute from their riohly furnished store
houses ot art and literature. Hugh S. Legare,
William Crafts, Thomas 8. Grlmke, Isaac Har
ry, Mitchell Kino, James L. Petior?, George S.
Bryan, Joel R. Poinsett, Bicharo Yeadon, Wm.
D. Porter, and others, dead and living, here illus
trate that legal lore and literary leisure are not
incompatibles. Medicino also contributes her
quota, through the polished pens of Dickson,
Irvino, and poor Wuudeman.
The olergy are not ill represented on this cata
logue. First oomea the patriarch of our Charles
ton churches, Dr. Baohman, who, in this volume,
stands accredited with '/Tho Morals of Ento.
mology ;" Bev. A. A. M?ller wrote "The School
Girl watching the Stars," and Dr. Oilman con
tributed a paper on French literature, written in
that charming Btyle, characteristic of all his pro
ductions,?with a diotion, and masterly uso of
English, reacbod by few of his cotemporaries.
The hat of writers among clergymen might have
been very much enlarged. Dr. Smtth had even
then written much for publication ; Bishop Gapers
and Dr. Wightman bad dallied with the muae.
But above all, should Bishop England not have
been left out; for we have had few, if any, au"
thors in our State to surpass him in extent of
loarning, vigor of thought, or facility of present
ing his views to his readers in a clear, forcible
manner. Others also we could name, but the
editor meeta any possiblo chargo on this ground
by stating, in his preface, that "many of the dis
tinguished among us, living and dead, have been
omitted through the sheer impossibility of Unding
a space for all in a design so limited."
The ladies are not forgotten. Anna P. Dinnies
contributes "Tho Wife." PeninaMoise, the sweet
Binger of Israel, appears here, celebrating the
praises of "Miriam." Tho lamented Mart E.
Lee has sevoral vory interesting pieces, both
prose and poetry, characterized by a pathos and
air of melancholy that pervades all her writings.
Caroline Oilman, so favorably known to those of
our young readers who have been fortunate
enough to find any of her writings in what is left
of tho older libraries in our State, contributed
several pieces for this collection. Mrs. Oilman I?
still amongst us, and wo feel assured we express
tho wish of thousands of her friends and admirers
when we say that wo should like to see some of
her books reprinted. They are constantly in
quired for, but aro not to bo had now.
Mary E. Stewart wrote "The Flight of Time"
for this book. Eliza Mukden wrote "The Volun
John A. Stewart's "Boat Chase" is a vory
spiri ed sketch. J. D. B. DeBow has an essay
hero on "Tho Beautiful." He has long since loft
it for the usuful. Daniel K. Whitaker, another
member of the press, writes on tho Nocossity of
a Soutborn Literature ; J. M. Clatp on "The
Death of Alreht Bhett."
B. 8. Carroll has a fine picture here of tho
"Mental Structure of Hugh S. Legare;" there
are several others by the same practiced hand,
now roposing in the silent tomb?one of the
many victims of tho late war. William J. Rivers
contributed "The Siatera."
It will thus be aeen that Dr. Simms was judi
cious in bis selections, culling flowers from every
walk in life. There are nearly a hundred pieces
iu this volume, and we know of no book that of
fers as much of interost 'to the Oharlostonian as
this. If he be an old resident, be will be pleased
to renew his acquaintance with tho clara et nob?ia
nomina of other days. If ho belongs to a later
generation, he should be glad to bave an oppor
tunity of procuring a link that will connect him
and bis cotomporarios of this stern, practioal
present, with the light and splendor of other days.
Charleston has never at any one time counted
many professional writers among her sons or
daughters. But a high standard of culturo was
hers at all times. In the society of few cities of
her size could you And so many men of talent,
education, large reading, brilliant and instructive
conversation; and so many women possessed of
all tho charms that render the higher sooial circle
so attractive and useful to even the most intellec
tual young man. Very many of these men and
women oould express themselves on paper with
rleganco and groat ease. Some wore in the habit
of doi?g so whon any extraordinary occasion
prompted them to tho effort. But nearly all ap
peared to have an innato shrinking from exposing
their though Is to tho profane publio, through the
medium of typo and printer's ink. We could wish
it bad been otherwise.
We will mako one extract only from the book be
foro na. It is from tho eloquent pan of Mr. Peti

Fourth of July, or some similar occasion. We
commend the old man eloquent to the attention
of all our readers. Thoro is hero food for reflec
THE TRUE ?LORY OF AMERICA.
AY JAMES L. rETIORD.
But military famo constituios tho least part of
tho honor duo to tho soldiers of America. War,
after all, is tho reign of violonco, and violonco is
the scourge of tho hum au race. And it is tho pe
culiar glory of that army which boro tho brunt of
this sharp contest, that when the war waB over,
they laid aside with tho sword tho lovo of war, and
with peaco resumed tho peaceful arts in tho retire
ment of privato life. Honored in all times bo that
patriot Boldiery who served a bleeding country in
all its privations, and bore tho delay even of tho
modest recompense duo to their toils, with the
fortitude or the soldier and tho modesty of tho
citizen. What aro the boasted triumphs of thoso
who have dyed the earth in blood, compared with
tho fume of that army, which, after a successful
war, laid down thoir arms before thoir own claims
were satisfied ? That a stable Government, with
the resourcos arising from a porioct command of
the civil force, should raise and disband troops at
their pleasure is the common privilego of a well
governed State. But this was a revolutionary army,
enlisted, not iu tho Dame of obedience, but of re
sistance to the established authority. An army
which had made all tho sacrifices of a hard service
without the emoluments of tho camp?which bad
felt the steel of tho enemy, without feeling tho
cares of a Government ovon for a supply of their
wants. They had, by thoir arms, set up tho civil
power that now disposed of thoir claims to jus
tice. Every aolfish feeling prompted them to take
justice into their own hands, and the most plausi
ble arguments were at hand to excuse tbo step.
They were organized, and the weakness of the
Government required an infusion of energy. The
State stood in neod of reformation, and their
wrongs cried aloud for justice. How easy in such
circumstances to cover ambitious designs under
tbe oloak of the publia good I To thoir everlast
ing honor, they resisted the temptation, and im
posed on themselves a forbearance without exam
ple. With arms in their bands, thoy submitted to
tbe civil authority, as men who had no weapons
but persuasion. So rare an instance of duty has
deservedly raised the character of military men,
and made them, in this country, objects, not of
jealousy, but of popular regard. But such mod
eration could only be expected from men under
the most enlightened influence, and is accounted
for by tho pre-eminent character of their leader.
They trusted in Washington, and set tho seal to
the gratitude of posterity, by yielding an implicit
obedience to bis counsel and example. A nation
may well be proud of military fame; bnt tho char
acter of Washington haa added to the estimation
of mankind, and form a part of the inheritance of
the human race. We may boast of tho valor of
our troops, bot submission to the law, and re
spect for the libort.es ot their oountry, are the
crowning glory of tbe patriot army that fought
the battle of Independence. Thoy laid no sacri
legious hand upon the ark of liberty, and showed
themselves formidable only to the enemies of
their country. .jf*"
Mr. Samuel Hart, in King street informs us
that he has a few copies of this book left. We re
gret much that it is out of print, and hope that
Dr. Sikms may act on the suggestion thrown out
some time ago by our city papers, and compile a
new work of this kind, bringing it down to the
A Disgraceful Act. ? Some unknown person or
perso.)s entered the Presbyterian Church, at this
placo, on Sunday night, after] preaching, tore up
the carpets, broke the pulpit lamps, poured oil
over the floor and books, upset tho sofa in the
pulpit, threw the Bible on the floor, tore the tapes
try from the pulpit-stand, mutilated the Sunday
school books and otherwise disgracefully robbed
and mutilated the church. No clue has yet been
given of the parties who instigated or committed
this diabolical deed. Nothing has ever occurred,
so far as is known, to provoke such conduct, even
from the most debased and unprincipled wretch
that wears the shape of man.

that evidence has been gotten convicting some
negro children of part of tho mischief.?Florence
The Crops.?Under the quickening influence of
the warm sunshino and refreshing rains tho crops
in certain parts of our seotion have made some
improvement?more especially the cotton. But
the rains were by no moans general, and the
drouth immediately in the steps of the wet sea
sons has, it is said, vory materially shortened the
corn crops. This failure Boems to be almost uni
versal, and is creating some uneasiness among
our people. We hope that the yield will excicd thoir
expectations, but from this time forth great econ
omy should bo practiced in the uso of our corn.
Amount of the Taxable Properly of Georgetown.
?The assessor appointed by tho Town Council
have completed their work, and thoir returns
show tho present valuation of tho real estatu of
the town to bo $970,400, but we very much doubt
if it could be bought to-day for $500,000. This
assessment does not include the valuable Lumber
Mills and Turpentine Distilleries now in success
ful operation outside (at present) tho corporate
limits of tho town. When tho railroad is built
and the Santee Canal constructed we may look for
a very rapid inorease of the value of our real es
tate and an increase of all tho various branches
of trade and industry not concoived of by the
most sanguine. The Corporation being out of
debt, the bonds about to bo issued by that body,
to aid in building tbe railroad, will be of the very
first-class, should, and doubtless will, command
tbe highest price for such securities to be obtain
ed at home or iu the Northern cities.

MO- A MODERN MIRACLE 1?FROM OLD AND
young, from rich and poor, from high-born and lowly,
comes the universal voice of praise for
HALL'S VEGETABLE SICILIAN HAIR RBNBWEB.
It 1b a perfect and miraculous artlole. Cures baldness.
Makes hair grow. A better dressing than any "oil" or
"pomatum." Softens brash, dry and wiry hair into
Beautiful Silken Tresses. But, abovo all, the great
wonder is the rapidity with whioh it restores GRAY,
HAIR TO ITS ORIGINAL COLOR.
Use It a fow times, and
the whitest and worst looking hair rosnmes its youthfn
beauty. It does not dye the hair, but strikes at the root,
and fills it with new life and coloring matter.
It will not take a long, disagreeable trial to prove the
truth of this matter. The first application wul do good;
you will soe tho NATURAL COLOR returning every
day, and, BKr0BE Y0U KNOW IT,
the old, gray, discolored appearance of the hair will be
gone, giving place to lustrous, shining, and beautiful
Aak for Hall's 81cillan Hair Renewer; no other article
la at all like it in effect. You will flud It
CHEAP TO BOY, PLEASANT TO TBY,
and SURE TO DO YOU GOOD.
There are many imitations. Be sure you proeure the
nanuino, mauutaoturod only by
it. P. HALL A 00., Nashua, N. H.
