Atrocious Villaiy.
We learn from the Greenville
.3fountaineer, that somec onte has been
placing impediments upon the trwv:k of
the Gredhville and Columbia R-ail
Road, with the apparent design of
throwing the cars oif the track. The
impediments used were large rocks,
which were luckily crushed by the
wheels of the engine.
Disturbatnces at Eric.
The disturbances at Eric are still
going on. Instead of being put a stop

It is thought that the United States

Sanall Pox in Charlestom.
We have been permitted to make
the following extract from a private
letter, received from a gentleman in
Charleston
"The Small Pox, I am glad to state
is rapidly on the decrease. There are
but few cases in the city, and so far,
it has been very mild, so nimuch
so, indeed, that it does not disligure
the face in the least- I speak know(
ingly. Therefore, if you have any idea,
at all, of coming down, do 'so by all
means ; the recports from all accounts,
are extravagantly exaggerated in the
country."
87The Georgia Legislature, after a

a gentleman oIf fine abilities and a thorotngh

Four Eclipses ina thae Year 15..
There are to be four eclipses this year.
Two of the Moon and two of the Sun.
Those of the Moon will be btut partial
eclipses; they take place one on the -ath
of May, and the other on theo 4Ith or No
vemnber. The first will be invisible in thte
United States and the latter only seen in
some of the Northern States. Those of
the Sun occur, oneo May the 26th and the
other Novemnber 20th. The first wvill he
visible mn all pr.rts of the United States arid
the largest eclipse of thte Sunt that has gt..
curred in the United States since 1-80t.
We advise all our readers to be on
the look out for it, as they will not enjoy
such another eight in some timet. Th'le
other eclipse'of thte Sun will be a total one,
but invisible in the United States.

Accidenat4! Accidetis Iw
In looking over our exchanges, we
are forcibly struck with the great nuni
ber of accidents of all kinds, which have
occurred of late, all over the country.
Fire after fire is announced. The Me.
trapolitan Hall is no sooner said to be
down, than we are told that the La
Fa'-ge Iotel is in flamnes, and this un
welcome sound is scarce out of our
ears before we hear of others, not as
great, but yet " Thick as leaves in
Valumbrosia." Not only,' too, does
itseeni that Fire is at open war with
man, but Steam, its natural oiTtprinrg,
together with wind and rain appear to
be leagued in an open rebellion against
him. The loss of tile Son Francisco,
with her three hundred souls, is follow
ed by that of the steamship Tam
Oshanter, the General Ben and the
Georgia and the bark Harriet and
Martha and several others. Rail
hoad accidents are occurring every
day, and as if all this is not enough.
tnan turns nn open eneny against
himself and our papers teim with ac
counts of bloody naurders and horrible
suicides frorin aitiost every part of our
country. We know not whether it is
a common sight for the " Knights of
the Scissors " to behold, but since we
have become one of that honored fia
ternity we have read and heard of a
number quite too large to record, and
we therefore take this inethod of in
forming our readers that .Ahese things
are gii% on.

bor's address, together with Prof
Liober's, Reynold's, Judge O'Neal's
and Dr. Thornwell's letters to him at
length, which you will fine in the

JUSTICE ALL ROtUND.'
From tle Wiatchinan.
MESSRS. EDIToRs: in your last issue,
'Many Citizens" have called upion nc to
comply with their wislhes by expressing a
willingness to verve as Senatior for Clire
moot County during the next tarsn.
The very high positioan to which tny
kind friends would call me, and the
strong and coiplimentary terms ia which
that :all is expressed, lead ine to concidde
that the partiality of some of iy friends
has induced them to place too high an
estiiate upon ioy alialificatiolts.
That it may have been miy good fortune
to have done thie State sonie little service
ibrod, and to have taken at home as
active, a part in tho public Improvements
of the diy, as inv hitable abilities would
allow, I may admit; nor will it be consid
cred vain in laying claim to honesty, in
dustry, and a ready willingie."s in the
d:sciargei of duties, both professioial and
private. But to asuitie either the talent,
legislativa experience, or the general
knowledge of State anl Federal politics
necessary to oie who would properly
fill the ulliee of Senator, fromn a County
so large, and a constituency so rcspectablb
as that of 'Claretont, is more than a
just estiimate of tny quatfications will al
low.
]i conclusion, let me return to "Many
Cirizeis" ily sincere thanks for the com
pitnent paid ine; and while not hioldinr
them a ltogether blameless of the inposi.
tion of this article upon the public, woiild
declare ityself a cathdlubate for the ofiCe of
