Tho Contribution! or Dr. JP". Peyrc Por?
At tho lato Stato Fair here, tho con?
tributions of Dr. F. Pey re Porcher, by
some oversight, were not roferred to any
.of tho committees. As onr readers are
aware, Dr. Porcher is the author of that
useful and well kuown^vork, "77ic lie
sources of Southern Fields and Forests."
Beceutly, in addition to his duties ns u
practitioner of medicine, Dr. Porcher
has boen experimenting willi tanuiug
materials. He has utilized, iu this way,
some of our Southern products.
Dr. Porcher sent to the late Fair spe?
cimens of his articles:
1,. TANNIN EXTRACT from LIQCIDAMBAR,
propared by ether, alcohol and water.
600 grains of dried leaves yielded 253
grains, equal to 42 per cent.
2. NATIVE CAROLINA TANNIN FKODUCT.
??F." 70 per cent, tannin. Tans in
3. NATIVE CAROLINA TANNIN. Product
4. TANNIN EXTRACT from native plant.
For tanniug loather and dye stuff. As?
tringency indicated by taste. .
5. NATTVE SOUTH CAROLINA PLANT
ground-substituto for sumach. Their
relativo amouut of tanning tested by
G. INK from native material, with a
single compound of iron extract em?
These specimen articles wero accom?
panied with an essay, by Dr. Porcher,
whioh, with othor essays, will bo con?
sidered by tho Executive Oom mit toe,
at their meeting, on thc 20th of this
Dr. Pauknin, of Charleston, has also
made some valuable discoveries in tho
department of tanning compounds and
agencies. At the last Fair, tho Columbia
Tannery exhibited leather that showed
the excellence of Dr. Paukuiu's new
tanning methods. Wo hope that both
Dr. Porcher and Dr. Pankuin will pro?
secute their investigations in this branch
Tue Columbia Canal.
We are aware of the interest which the
people of Colombia and the State gen?
erally take in the development of the
Columbia Canal. We aro enabled to
give some information and assurances
apon the subject. Tho return of Major
Pearce to this city we have reason to as?
sociate with tho prosecution of tho work
npon the Canal. We have examined the
work already dono, and have seen for
ourselves wliat it is contemplated to do.
We state on authority upon which wc
rely, that the pian proposed by thc en?
gineer, Major Mahon, involving the con?
trol and utilizatiou of the entire waters
of the (Jongaree, has boon accepted and
will be adopted. By this wo shall be in
possession of a water power even greater
than that of Lowell, Mass., viz: 10,000
horse-power; that is, tho power which
can bo brought i uto use is equal to be?
tween 11,000 and 12,000 horses, capable
of turning very nearly 1,000,000 of spin?
dles. Wo have seen the proposed mill
sites. Thc}' aro admirably located, and
adapted to all tho varied departments of
manufactures. We arc gratified to find
that tho work already doue is full of
promise for Ibo future. It is ?till in
progress. Wo need not comment upon
the raro advantages to accrue to Colum?
bia and the Stato from thc full aud pro?
per development of the Columbia Canal.
We observe with pleasure thc indications,
and wo receive with satisfaction thc as?
surance that tho project of Mr. Sprnguo
will, through his representative, Major
. Pearce, be promptly and amply carried
MR. EDITOR: Governor Scott lays the
blame of no arrests in Laurens upon the
civil authorities. Let ns see. Thc Go?
vernor appoints his own Trial Justices,
whose duty it is to issue warrants in snob
cases. Til ese warrants may be executed
by either tho Sheriff or by some deputy
appointod by the Trial Justice. Were
uuch warrants issued? Had they been
issued and put iuto tho hands of the
Sheriff, or any decent mau not of the
already offensivo posse, docs not every?
body know-does not Governor Scott
know-there would havo been neither
difficulty nor delay in cxecutiug them?
Clearly, tho fault lies with Governor
Scott's own Trial Justices, or l'hoir depu?
Assurances had been given limes and
again, by tho community, that no le
sistaucu would be made to any decently '
conducted arrest. POLICE. !
MR. EDITOR: I overheard on tho street, !
to day, this remark made by au official: i
"At tho Executive caucus, Tuesday
night, in tho Treasurer's office, the Lnnd\
Commission was awfully choked."
There was a wink and a smile with this
remark. What eau it mean? Who
knows? ALL EIGHT.

Our frieml, whoso remains have been so fol?
lowed with tears, and whose departure so
honored with regrets, wag not without faults
common to humanity, but so mingled were
they with generous impulses and redeeming
graces, that among those who knew him bcBt,
his memory will bo sacredly enshrined and
kindly remembered. Wo propose not to in?
vade thc sanctity of bereaved affection by re?
ferring to those domestic rotations to which
his life was devoted, Out deem it a privilege
to grant the horuago of a tear, and pav tri?
bu-o to thone qualities of an enlarged and sin?
cero heart which so distinguished him as a
friend. It was in thid relationship that gen?
erosity, constancy and sincerity wero never
found wanting; and with a kind aud sympa?
thizing heart, his friendships were as'wide?
spread as his bosom wae capacious. Pos?
sessed of more than ordinary cast of mind
and address, of sparkling vivacity, aud of un?
bounded hospitality, his companionship was
not only agreeable, but enticing. We shall
iniuB his engaging manners and his activo
zeal in any cause ia which his interest became
elicited; and while deploring his premature
decay, borrow consolation in the reflection,
that as in tho presence of death wc feel only
tendei ly disposed to the short-comings of our
kind, we reasonably hopo for extenuation of
our frailtios at the hands of our Father who
is in Heaven.
When with intention we have erred,
No other plea wo have.
Than thou art pood und gooduo.is still
Delighteth to forgive.
When human weakness has come short,
Or frailty stept aside,
Do thou, All-good, for such thou art,
In shades of darkness hide.
Thus our good actions and (Mir virtuous de?
signs only should bo treasured, and the man?
tle of charity drop kindly over the faults ami
frailties of our erring humanity. Were it not
so, to the memory of how Tow of ns would bc
accorded reminiscences unalloyed with pain.
To noue, the record of a perfect life.
Woak and irresoluto is mau;
Tho purpose of to-day,
Woven with pains into his plan,
To-morrow semis away.

Finds out his weaker part,
Virtue engagea his assent ,
Dut pleasure wins his hear!.
Our friend has only preceded us by a little,
and wo aro tourneying on thc same voyage
which he has just ended. Let us, while re?
calling only his virtues, seek to emulate tlif.ni
and place our goal in a world beyond the
Hound on a voyage of awful length,
And dangers"little known,
A stranger to superior ktrcm/lh,
Man vainly trusts his own.
but ours alone can ne'er prevail
To reach tho distant coast;
