It really seems that nothing comes isn
I the way of the Charleston Press, which can
possibly he t, rned against this road, which
they do not eagerly seize and publish, to
gratify the morbid taste of their disappoint
ed and repining city. They could have
procured the road, which they are now
trying to injure; btt which in reality is in.
jtriig them so much, direct to their city if
they had have dis.layed any public spirit
or enterprise. It wasfirst offered to tim
and pressed upon them, but they refused
ti do anything for it, and now that it has
been built without them, and doing well,
they beglin to repine, become sore and
peevi.Vh, and vent their spleen in abusing
the road and ill connected with it. Now
all this does no g-mod. Such a course can
never benefit C.h:rlesion. and it injures
nuioiy but them-selves, It only tends to
alienate the friends of the W. &. M. Rail
rioal, to create enenies and divert trade
tlstewhere. We think our Charleston
friewils are pursuing a mistaken course
'T'e thing is done nmw, and it cannot be
hIelped. 'lhe wisest course then would
-ce:n to e to take it good n:ituredly, and
m:!ke Rie bt of it. 'T'hese rellections
have been called ft-rtl from reading in the
C'ourice of the "2l i inst., the commtinMi'a

Now as regards frienl Ml trit-:.r., the

I am rather inclined to the the opinion,
that the decision would be right; for I have

that should administer to the comforts of

here, in immoral practices."
We second the General's motion, and

The Vigilant Association
This Association, about which si
much has beei said and written of late
was formed in Sunterville on the 25t:
January last. It riow numbers, we
have been informed, suoe hundred and
lifty tmnebers and is accomplishing
wonders for our village. Before il
went into operations, you trot only
could not walk the streets at night
without being jostled off of the sidt
walk by soie rough dirty "darkie,'
but you could not find a servant al
home when one was wanted. You
couldi't keep atn egg, .a chicken, vega
table or any thing of the kind, and yol
couldn't find a polite industrious sobhe
negro in the village ; but now our ser
vants are at home and always in tlheil
proper places. They begin to lool,
neat, sober, and conitented, tld a bods

Kind welcome to our hearts and lonies,
Thou wonderer from another clime ;
We cannot boast of lordly domes
But welcome in our cot you'll find.
Hiere friendship ever really stands
To greet you with her warmest smile;
And pleasant look, and cheerful words,
Shall oft your weary heart beguile.
Come cast your lot among our groves,
Come choose among our lover fair
The partner of your cheerful hours
The sharer of your future care.
I would n ot check ambition's fire;
I'd rather urge you on to fame
I'll wake my mose---l'll tune my lyre,
To bid you win, yourself a name.
Then, then, return with victory crown'd,
And lay your laurels at her feet ;
When sages' lips, your praise resound,
Beauty will send her tribute meet.
Her coral lips shall smile on yon
HIer soft blue eye with rapture burn
IHer bosom beat with pleasures sigh,
And her pure heart be all thmne own.
Then onward press if this the prize
If this the end--if this the spoil
'Tis beauties' lips, and beautie i' eye
That shall reward the st udenits teil.

FRIEstoN o, one of the " Daighters,"
who in behalf of her sisters rose and in
clear and beautiful language presented
the Lodge with this "f best of all God's
gifts to man." The book was received
from her hands by D. ). G. M., Ltno,
who with a few appropriate remarks
placed it in the possession of P. G ,
CurrTio, who rose .nd in behalf of his
brethren accepted the gift. le com
mented at some length upon its appro
priateness and beauty-showed the
conformity of the Oider with its les
sons of Friendship, Love and Purity,
and closed by assuiing the audience
and especially the fiir donors that as
Odd-Fellows they were bound by and
would endeavor to abide by and carry
out into practice the pure and holy
precepts taught in its sacred pages.
Another ode was sung and P. G.,
W. It. H us-rER, the Orator tf the oc.
easion, was introduced to the meeting,
who, in a speech of great eloquence
and beauty, in which he ably vindica
ted the practice and principles of the
Order, entertained the audience .f-r
over an hour and closed aiid the
hearty plaudits of the asseiaige. The
procession then returned to the Lodge
room and dispersed without anytiing
occurring to inarr the occasion. Mr.
lIc ~-riae's speech was an able one, and
lie has been requested to furnish the
Lodg-e with a copy for publicai.n.
We are .sure that we but express the
wish of inaniy out of the Order as well
as the Lodge, when we say that we
hope. he will give his consent and per
tnit the publication of what, we think,
will do the Ji der a great deal of beinelit.

I wish to.disovow all sympathy with Maj.
'erry and his deuagogisi.
First : The consti ution provides that
each Skate shall appoint, ill such manner
as the Legislature iay direct, a numiber of
Electors. &c., &c. To the Legislature is
thus given the power of providing the
mo:!e of ippointinent-nut the power of
appointing. Now, it is a maxii of law and
of co1tnon sense, that whien a trust is giv
en to devise a tuode of doing anything, the
agent cannot sujmirsede the power aid exe
cute the trust hianself. A trustee to app~oinlt
an1 agent canno~it himiiself excute tile trust
for whichi the agenat is to be .appoinited. 1t
such a trulstce were to aippoinit himaself, it
would he fraudul~ent and void. All thlat
Ihle Legislatuire, the~refore, can do is to de.
vise a modse of apapointmenit. The Legis.
latuore is not t he conlstitiiency of the~ Eiec

derive their :oithiority froin sorne source to
be directed by ine LegislJature, not tromi lie

of right ought to tie the coiistituency of the

tile appoin iinent or that body is to be ma~de
tby the State, not byV the Legislaiture ; for
it it assumiies to be the State, it is a usuirpa
