party determined to attempt to forn a junc.

incked by an overwhlehning body of troops,.
and after at short struggle were on the se

In reference to the foregoing, the Crt

" Wo scarcely know how ao' constr

Lopez; but we do think they chargo'up,

feeble hope. We conless we suspect the

and wilful desertion on the part of Lopt

would not have failed to have written

that Lopez belaved treachcrously or in b;
faith. A man has only to look at his po

A largo number of the citizens of York
assembled near King's Creek on the 25th
uilt., at which a Southern Rights Associa
tion was formed, the following pledge
being adopted :
"'We the undersigned, do solemnly de.
clare that we are ready and willing to re.
sist the late Federal encroachments upon
the rights and honor of the slaveholding
States ; and that to a hearty co-operation in
whatever mode of redress the Convention
of South Carolinum, imty decide upon, we
pledge our lives, our fortunes, and sacred
The Effects of Action.
A much resorted to argument, on the
part of the Co.oporationists, has been, that
th: course of the secession party is such
as to excite in the people of the other
States feelings antagonistic to that spirit
of resistaace which we wish to tee ani
mate their breast ; that, in taking the lead
in the novetent, we practically say to
them, " we are truer froenen than you ;
you are less sensitive than we to the ap
proaches of despotism, less determined to
repel aggressions and maintain your
rights," that jealousy of our arrogance and
determined adherence to their own opinions
are developed by such a course, and they
are rather driven fron, thin drawn nearer
In almost every great movement, every
thing afl'cting the progress of man, physi
cally, morally or socially, ive have had a
case in which cbjections, hinging upon this
samne principle, might have been urged. If
pressed successfully, action and progress
moust have been stayed, because there nev
er has been the time whent men have with
equal clearness perceived how their condi.
tion aight be improved, and with equal
energy determined upon mastering the
evil and possessing themselves of the
gooid. A few have always been the teach
ers and the leaders.
There is one po:nt wh'ch we think the
Co-operatinnists, as a party, have never
settled; rather than a penaianent contin
atie in the Union would the"y choose the
separate nationality of South Carolina !
if they decide that their duty, as freernen,
would be, ultitately, when hope of Co
operation should fail, to protest ngainst
wrong, to evince by acts a determinution

A meeting of the Congregotion of 8t. 4h ip'
Church; Dradford Springsi, was held qa 'ridgy,
August 29, 185), on the' nelanojioly occasion
of the death of- their veierable Pastor the Rev.
CagA rys I'. P If OTT.
Mr. W. C. Guzaxa, being called to. the
Chair, mnade some feeling and appropriate re
marks, after which, Mr. Josmru S. iosaaRD
addressed the meeting as follows:
Mr. President : We meet to discharge a
mournful duty, and one which involves in it
considerations well calculated' to arrest the at.
tention of this meeting. It is to announco the
death of our late friend and Rector.
The Rev. CHnAR LnRS P. ELLIOrrTr is no more
he has passed, suddenly passed, from time to
eternity.-the fatal truth is realized.
On the 24th of August, 1851, when but tafew
miles from his residence, and on his way to dis
charge one of his regular ministerial appoint.
ments, he was overtaken by a whirlwind-and
to-day, alas! to-day, the unrelenting grave has
closed over his mortal remains. The personal
and social intercouse so fondly cherished by us
all, and sustained by the highest admiration for
his virtues, has ceased for ever. No more shall
we hear, from that sacred desk, the tidings of
salvation pour from hi lips, which, if they- didl
not always carry conviction to our hearts, al.
ways conmmnanded our respect.
The announcement of the death of a divine,
so eminently zealous, calls forth the strongest
manifestations of grief.
Dignity, simplicity and purity, integrity, con
Pistency and devotedness of purpose, were so
beautifully blended in his character, as ever to
remain enduring monuments to his memory;
and whilst we cast upon the scene the veil of
sorrow and regret, we are encouraged to hope,
that, in this signal providence these eminent
virtues have only been transferred to a higher
iii purer sphere, where they may shine on,
With undiminishied brilliancy, forever.
Then lot us cherish his menmory, whilst we
astimate his virtues; and whilst we are admon
ished by this melancholy event, of the uncer
ainty of life, let us draw from it the conclusion,
hat we shall linger here but a short time, a-id
to live, that our souls may mingle with his,
Where the righteous only find rest.

only a week ago, are found blighted. la

We hope the next change will be, the re

should leave Newberry us soon as the cars
arrive, and may reach Greenville in twelve
hours--ti.e anles an hour. Greenville is
destined to be a great place yet. Situated
