the Apprentices' Library Society, which was
established bi 1824, "was designed chiefly for
the use of apprentices, minors, and others wil?
ling to avail themselves of the opportunities of
reading. From the humblest of beginnings, lc
rose, through che energy and perseverance of
its founders, to a high-degree of usefulness and
respectability. The destructive fire sf 1861 de?
stroyed the library ot' the Society, amounting
to many thousand volumes, and burned to the
ground the flue building which was the crown?
ing result of liberal donations and hard-earned
accumulations. ? Not a book was saved. Not
a record. Nothing now remains to the
society but the lot on which their baU
stood, and an investment of about one
thousand dollars in stocks and bonds." How
fiver, the friends of the Society were not
discouraged, but nursed their resources until
an opportunity offered to re-establish the so?
ciety, and deem this the time to begin the
work of placing lt upon a firm loan dation.
With this view they call upon the citizens to
attach themselves by membership, and to do?
nate books, one or more, as they are best able
to contribut?. The Society has now a place to
meet and to deposit whatever may be dona?
The objects of this society, to cultivate a
taste for reading, and supply the means there?
for to apprentices and minors especially,
yet for all who would avail of Its advantages,
are such as must commend' them to our citi?
zens, and we trust the appeal made by the so?
ciety will meet a full and ready response. The
gentlemen In whose hands is thc management
of the society will, we feel assured, with any
?easure of co-operation on the part of our
tizeas, restore lt to its former vigor and use

WM. GILMORE SIMMS.
DE A. TH OF THE GE, EAT SOUTH CAE
OLIN A NO VELIST.
HU Life, Character and Writings.
The Hon. Wm. Gilmore Simms, D. C. L.,
died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Ed.
Roach, In this city, at about 5 o'clock on Satur
day afternoon. Mr. Simms had been in deli
cate health for some time, but only a week be
fore his death was well enough to Join In an
excursion down the harbor. His strength,
however, rapidly failed him, and on Thursday
night lhere was no hope of his recovery. He
remained conscious to the end, his last words
being, "Not long ."' The bells of St. Michael's
lolled yesterday-the solemn notes conveying
to t he whole city the mournful tidings of the
death of him who was the ornament and the
pride of the State he loved so well.
Wm. Gilmore Simms was born in this city on
April 17, 1806. His lather was of Scoto-Irish
descent, and his mother, Harriett Ann Augusta
Singleton, was of a Virginia family which came
early to South Carolina. While yet a child, he
was left an orphan, and was thrown upon his
own resources. For this reason his regular
education derived small aid from the pecuniary
means of his family, and he had little classical
training ; but he acquired knowledge with an
astonishing celerity, and was soon the posses?
sor of a vast fund of miscellaneous Informa?
tion. At eight he wrote verses, and at < Ighteen
his self-acquired scholarship was aiready re?
markable. No professor or college did for
him one hundredth part ot what he did for
Mr. Simms was originally destined to the
study of medicine. This pursuit jumped not
with his tastes, and he chose the law by pref?
erence, being admitted to the bar at the age
of twenty-one. Law, however, was too te?
dious for the acutely active mind of Mr. Simms,
all whose inclinations lay in the direction of
the pleasant paths of literature. His first ac?
tive literary engagement was In the editorship
of the Charleston City Gazette, a paper which
opposed the doctrine of nullification. The
Gazette was a failure, and Mr. Simms, its pro?
prietor as well as editor, was a heavy loser.
The effect was not unhealthy, for it caused Mr.
Simms to devote himself, In earnest, to litera?
ture as a profession.
The literary debut of Mr. Simms was made In
1825, when he published a Monody on General
Charles Cotesworth Pinckney. A volume of j
nls poems followed "HT 1827, and Early Lays
was published lu the same year. The warm
reception given to his first efforts was highly
gratifying to the young author, who thence
forward, for more than forty years, applied
himself to those pursuits In which he won fame
for himself and honor for his native State.
The publication of Atalantis in 1832, intro?
duced Mr. Simms to the literary circles of
New York. The next year the Harpers' pub?
lished his first tale, Martin Faber, the Story of \
a Criminal, which at once attracted public at?
From thls-time, so uuiform was his career,
that a few words will sum up the incidents of
his history. A second marriage, to the daught?
er of Mr. Roach, of Barnwell, his first wife
having died soon after their union; a seat in
the State General Assembly, where he made
his mark; the reception of thc Doctorate of
Laws from the University of Alabama; his sum?
mer residence in Charleston and his winter
home at Woodlands; these, up to the beginning
of the war, are the few external Incidents of a
career, whose events must be sought in the
achievements of hands and brain. The elegant
residence of Mr. Simms at Woodlands-a man?
sion with equal wings and a fine front-was
sumed down by Sherman's raiders In 1865.
lt the same time an extensive library was
vholly destroyed. But Mr. Simms returned
;o his general literary work with his old
mergy, and was In harness almost to the
lay of his death. The long roll of his lit?
erary works is the noblest tribute that can
JO paid to the memory of him who ls aptly
Jtyled "the Walter Scott of tho South," and we

69. Reviews. These have not been gathered I

tor of the Southern Quarterly Review, Mr. Simm
wrote the greater part or several issues; and h
always supplied the shortcomings of his con tr

he had editorial charge. He contributed llbei
ally to various other periodicals-The Klckerboct
er, Orlon, Graham's Magazine, Godey's Lady'

Martin Faber, his first prose work, brough1
Mr. Simms fairly belore the public. The bool
was decidedly successful, and Its success wa;
richly deserved. The story of guilty love, o
the cry of blood from the mute earth, of thc
mysterious law by which the bloody hand of the
murderer ls made to point to his own bosom;
these things are shown with graphic power.
From 3'ear to year, sometimes from month to
month, he threw off his rapid series of fictions;
now dealing with the aboriginal characters of
American life; now depicting thc achievements
of knight and infidel; now amid the glades ol
Florida; now in the wild freedom of the West?
over the whole wide range of Southern and
Southwestern American life. But, as Mr. Da?
vidson remarks, "He was most at home in the
Revolutionary times, when war, and craft, and
treachery, and love, and death, ruled the hour;
or In the older and pre-revolutionary times,
when the stalwart and sturdy Indian yet
struggled with bloody hands for his erstwhile
dominions, and yet hoped to wrest his lands
from the pale faces." As to the high order of
his ability as a prose writer, therejs no differ?
ence ol opinion.
Edgar Poe said of Afr. Simms: "fis has more
vigor, more imagination, more movement and
more general capacity than all our novelists
(save Cooper) combined.'1 Duycklnck, than
whom there ls no cooler critic, says ot Mr.
Simms: "As a novelist he ls vigorous In de?
lineation, dramatic in action, poetic in his de?
scription of sccnury, a master of plot, and
skilled In the arts of the practiced story-teller."
tn every home in South Carolina the romances
M Mr. Simms have found a pleasant resting
pla'ce. Well might Mr. Davidson write thnt
ff lille "Cooper has the advantage lu character?
ization and plot, Mr. Simms hasclearly the ad?
vantage in the energy of action, variety of
iltuations, and, perhaps, lu literal truthlul
?ess of delineation."
As a historiographer, Mr. Simms accom?
plished Just what he proposed-a readable hls
ory of South Carolina for the young, somc
hlng of less .'immemorial dust and dignity"
lian Ramsay and Carroll, and something of far
ess research than Rivers.
As a biographer, Mr. Simms produced four
iredltablc volumes-enough, In themselves, to
lave made the reputation of a man of less
As a poet, Mr. Simms wrote very largely. Be?
tides his long poems-Atalantis, the Cassique
)f Accabee, Donna Florida, and the Vision of
tortes-lie wrote two dramas, and hundreds if
lot thousands of lyrics, sonnets, ballads, odes,
dylls, canzonets and other minor poems. Ata
antis is generally considered the best of his
?arrative poems, as will be seen by the foliow
ng extracts from an article published in the
southern Literary Messenger for May, 1851.
Thc writer, who is a Charleston gentleman of
jreat culture and admirable taste, says:
"A scholar of no meau attainments in Utera
ure, and of cultivated critical skill, pronounced
he 'Atalantis' of Mr. Simms not unworthy of
:omparlsou, as a poem and a work of art, with
he Immortal 'Comas' of Milton. Thc vigor and
irlglnaltty of expression, the rervor and richness
if imagination, the fulness of thought, the com
uaud of language, the power and wide range of
:onceptlon. united with the sorter graces of deep
ind truthful sentiment, and of musical rhythm,
vhich distinguish 'Atalantis,1 will also be found,
n greater or less degree, to characterize all of
he roe try of Its author. We do not mean to say
hal Mr. Simms hos not published poetical trilles,
vhich, penned merely as trines, make no pr?ten?
tion to any high or peculiar merit, and do not
ilaim to be, by any means, exponeuts of his pow
?rs and characteristics as a poet. * * *
Chere are abundant evidences throughout the
vritlngs of Mr. Stmms, and perhaps in none more
han in his poems, of power to accomplish vastly
nore than he has performed. Not that thc exist
ng performances are crude, or the offspring a
:ertain immaturity of genius; but they are such
LS could only have emanated from the truest genl
ls, while they are not the highest expression or
he powers so evidently shining through them,
ind which alone could have beta adequate to
heir production. 'Atalantis' must be placed in
he very highest rank of thc class or poems to
vhich it belongs; but it ts not the loftiest and
.randest order of all poetry, while the genius .
vhich wa3 capable of producing lt, must, or ne
;es3ity, bc able to touch the very summit of poetl
Among the poetical works of Mr. Simms are
many rare gems ol'thought and diction, but it
cannot be sahl that lils poems are familiar in
the mouths of tho people. The very copious?
ness of illustration which sprung from the
fertility of his fancy, was'llkely to weary the
general reader, who tires of any long-contin
ued demand upon his attention or discrimin?t
lng Judgment. And the ease and fluency
which he wrote tempted him to write over
much. Those who knew him best knew
he could do more than he had ever done,
looked forward with confidence to the
when his name-borne on the wings of
mighty Epic-might be measured in busy
Europe as In his native Carolina. But
time and circumstance were wanting. That
astonishing Industry and activity which re
mained with him to the end gave him no rc
pose, and when he appeared in public for the
last time, the flow or thought and fancy was
as ripe and fresh as when he first stepped into
literary lire. To the buoyancy of the boy was
Joined the sober scholarship of the mature
man. Who did not notice that the voice of the
poet was weak and faint as he delivered the
opening oration of the Floral Fair, In this city
only ?few short weeks ago ? And yet who
his auditors dreamed then that the teeming
brain and kindly heart had well nigh done
In company with those whom he loved
admired, Mr. Simms was full of jest and merry
conceit. A charming talker, he, like Cole
ridge, rather discoursed than conversed. At
all times, he was a true and generous friend
whose hand was always ready to help the un
fortunate. In all his anxieties, he did not for?
get the sorrows and afflictions of others. Ac
tion-in his charity, as in his professional
work-was the feature of his life.
Mr. Simms was twice married. His first
wife was a daughter of Mr. Othnlel J. Giles
and his second a daughter of Mr. Nash Roach
His first wife bore him a daughter, (now the
wife of Mr. Ed. Boach, of this city;) and his
second three sons and two daughters, all
whom are living. One of the daughters is the
wife of Mr. Daniel Rowe.
The body was laid out in the parlor of Mr
Roach's residence yesterday, and many called
to take a last look at the features of the
great departed. The countenance betokened
that he had died without suffering.
The funeral services of the deceased will
take place at St. Paul's Church, at 5 o'clock
fjftis afternoon. The remains will be interred
at Magnolia Cemetery.

THE BATTERY AN? OTUER CITY PROPERTY
OFFIiltBD KOR SALK AOAIN.-When Sheriff
Mackey, to satisfy au execution in the case of
the executors of Geo. Gibbon, deceased, vs.
the City Council, levied upon the Battery, the
Artesian Well and the premises at the south?
east corner of Calhoun and King street, and
advertised them to be sold on the 6th of June,
Judge Willard, on motion ol City Attorney
Corbin, granted an order restraining the plain?
tiffs, their attorneys and servants, and
Sheriff Mackey particularly, from selling said
property until the coming in of the answer in
said cause, or the luther order of the court
having jurisdiction thereof.
On Thursday last the attorneys for the exec?
utors flied the answer referred to, and, as we
suppose, claim that the injunction is thereby
dissolved. However, Sheriff Mackey adver?
tises in this morning's ISTEWS that by virtue of
an execution In the case of thc executors of
George Gibbon vs. the City Council, he will,
on thc 5tli of July, sell thc Battery and thc
other property above referred to, and also all
thal lot of land, situated east end of Pinckney
street, now under lease, known as the -'Ferry
Slip." Also, all that lot of land, situated on
the east end of Vendue Range, and known as
the "Ferry Slip." Also, all that wharf or wood
yard, situated at the west end of Lynch
street. Also, all those lots of land, covered by
water, situated at the west end or Broad street.
Also, all that lot of land, situated at thc toot of
King street, and next west of White Point
When all of this property is sold, the cxecu-.,
tors will doubtless realize thc full amount of
their claim, $41,5G3 40. but it ls not probable
that the sale will taVe place for some time. It
is argued by some that the Hiing ol the an?
swer docs not give the sheriff the right to offer
thc property for sale again. We learn that two
or more members ol' the City Council are in
favor ol paying Hie claim of the executors at
once, while the majority are opposed to snell a
move. As it is, however, every attempt to
seil thc property advertised will be resisted.
