MANCHESTER AND WILMINGTON
Two routes from Sumtervillo 'to the Cain.
den Branch Roai have lately been surveyed,
the, survey of .the second being just camp e
ted,.as we learn from a conversation with e
general agent. These two, together with e
route originally surveyed some two or th .
years ago, make up the three: which it as
proposed should be examined, for the sel e.
tion of one. -
The original route will not be solected,as
it has been found 'to be less favorable than ii.'
ther of the two recently surveyed. Itzrc.
maids to select one of the latter.
The last survey commences north of the
village, and, passing near its termination
through the summer place of Col. Moore, de.
scends the hill beyond the residence. -Ac
cording to *a computation made by the.engi.
neer, the height of the ridge near Col. AMoore's
above tide water is 313 ft. The height 'of
the Camden Branch Rail 'Road is prob.4bly
one hundred and forty feet. ~This m es
the descent necessary 173 ft. Supposing t hat
a junction is mode at a distance 'of 6 miles
from the ridge, at a descent of 30 ft. permilo,
a descent of 160 ft. will thus be obtained,
leaving a probable excavation on the ridge of
23 ft. The necessary length of this excava.
tion has not yet been ascertained, but we are
inclined to believe that it would requiireto be
for three-quarters of a mile, or perhaps a mile.
This route is by some miles the shortest, and
from Sumterville has been found toebe faVr
able as far as Col. AMoore'us, where -the una
voidable difficulty of a descent begins.
The other route commences south of. the
village and runs favorably, with a necessary
descent, as far as a table of land not far from
the mouth of Shanks's creek, which off'ere a
good site for a depot, and from whlich it is
probable that the road will have to be con
tinued to the Camden Blranch by one of three
A selection must ho made of one of these
two router'from Sumterville, and, as there is
not much dii'erence between their favorable.
ness, the selection will depend, in some - de
gree, upon the encouragement given to the
road,'along eithier of the surv'eyed routes, by
subiscriptions and grants of the right of way
but principally by subscriptions.
We* have. .understood that the people of
Clarendon, .in the - neighborhood . of the
Shanks's creek route, propose to held a pub.
Iictimeeting for the purpose -of considering
whether they shall induce the pasage of 'the'
road in that. direction by liberal wihactiptiis
gn their past.9 The matter can be consid~rgI
attended to, and executed, either publicly'or
by each o privately.. WVe deem it our d4uty
to remind ithem that whatever they, pr4gose
to do must be donie quickly; for one of -the'
two routes must necessarily be soon seled
If they consider publie actionl on their part ad.
risable,' let it be taken, and that soon; for,a e
assert, on authority, that liberal subscripfins
by' that pieople will, in all probability. .carry
the'iMid ansong them. If-they are not dliofeI
lied to hazard the probability, they can sub2
scribe" o'r oondition. They can act privitely
snji according to ability, 'if indisposed to act
publicly,1.They can. subscribe work, if not
inoney, and perhaps both according to 'a der
tain; proportion, as there in much more -sur
plus work than tuoney in the'country. Must

TWO DAYS FOdi bT 1 S&TITy7
The tenth section of theflirstartiles of' the
Constitution of the State of SoutCarolltia
reads as follows, as far as regards the elecidn
of Snaitors and m9mbers of the house of rf
"Senators, and members of the house ofro
presentatives, shall be chosenzo.U the.secoTid
Monday in October next, and the day follow4
ing; and on the same days in everyulecondyei
thereaftei, In such inanner, and a 'such tidies,
as are hereini direed."
The report of the com ittde on eltifi,
concurred in by bot-hu, a po at :n.
py'llaces only'oni y r dZding the ele.
tions. !This is contrary to the. contitutio,'
and is a strange 'oversight by both houses.
The manag'ers, rno 0oubt, have disregarded
the report in this respect ;and regarded the
constitution. The-Iidslature,have inadver
tently endeavored to make that law which is
not law. The constitution, being the law. of
the'government, is consequently the law of the
stae, and is superior in autlidiiti. to an un
constitutional pro'vision of atnY kind r nite
THE CHARLESTON PARTIES.K _
The Taylor Democrats and the Cass 'Do
mocrats in Charleston, having refused a com
promise, have, at this late hour, brought their
candidat'es for the legislature before the-pea
ple of that city, while a third party, under the
necess and. significant name' of "he
Southern Rights Party" have also pul (prth
their ticket, composed almost entirely of se
lections from the two principal parties.
Though not much excitement prevails in the
south on the presidential question, it is high
ly desirable that there should be no serious
estrangement between the Charleston parties,
for the sake of future and not distant union'of
the whole state on the paramount question of
Southern Rights. Itais still a strong hope
W.ilh us and in the minds of many. in this
state and, other Southern States, that South
Carolina, will yet take the lead in organizing
a tSouthern Conrtention, and be foremost in
nullifying any and all Wilmot Provisoes.
We believe the time has arrived for this de
cisive measure,' and we hope'for its accom
plishiment, and that the~ South will pledge
"their lives, their fortunes and 'theiidsacred
honor" to be equal in this union with the other
members of the confederacy or to dislve it
or secede from it. The pledge dnce made, it
will be sustained.
