The Late Gale.
The gale of Thursday, which piase<
lightly over this section, and without
committing any damage, was very sever<
at Charleston and ISavannah ; though wc
are happy to state that thus far no instance
t% here life was lost has been heard of. Or
Sullivans island several prominent housei
were washed away, the Moultrie IIous
sustained little damage; the Islanders tool
refuge in the fort. No estimate of thI
amount of damage sustained in Charleston
has yet been made, but the loss of property
must be very great, some of the finest
buildings were injured ; among which we
learn that the Charleston Hotel suflerec
greatly, the whole of the upper story ant
the salon in the centre having been un.
roofed. Several large houses on East Day
also suffered by the loss or injury of roofs
and the consequent exposure to the vio.
lent rains which accompanied the storm
Messrs Cohen & Cohn, R. A. Pringle
McKensie, Cadow & Co., Chafee, St
Amaind, Croft, all suffered, but not, we
believe to any serious amount ; while
Metsrs Johnson Crews & Brawley sus
tained heavy damages. The loss upon
the wharfs and shipping is put down at
from 8300,000 to 8400,000.
The city in its corporate capacity has
suffered a heavy loss in the dami.ge to the
llaitery. The wood work, with a large
port.is of the steau in the facing of both
sides 1: jst and South, has been destroyed.
The water formed breaches at the swells
of the flood, even over the highest points,
and the spray was dashed in considerable
quantities on the roofs of the houses oppo
site, on the West side. The bridge cause
way leading to the bathing house off the
point has been carried away and the house
itself considerably damaged. The wharves
along South Bay have all been seriously
injured-Moreland's wharf having been
cut away nearly to low water mark.
Nothing certain has been yet heard
from Savannah, though the storm is known
to have raged with great fury at that place.
News of the Week.
Several serious riots have occurred in
New York recently, the consequences of

Editorial Correspondeacc.
ScI.PHtUt Searxus, N. C.
September 1, 1814.
).tRo L0AN ,We might have writ.
ten the readers of the /anner before
this an account of the" wonders we
have seen" since we left old Sumter,
but the care and attention of a sick
family (for whose health, we left home,
and its couforts, and not we assure
you, for pleasure, as your "Frolic"
editorial might be construed) as well
as the hurry and weary of travelling
by public. conveyai:cc from place to
place atid stopping but a short time
at a'l qf them, have prevented us
untiV n'w from discharging this other
wise agreeamble duty.
On r~ journey here, was a rapid, and
rounid about one. Wec left .Ianttey's
comilfortatble quarters on the morning
of thte 18th ult., and wer~e sotn snugly
aboard of' the ears, where we fotund a
good uany, like ourselves, boutnd for'
Chick's Springs, Ceasar's head, Denv
ers&c e were soon on our way,
and the road, a winding circuitous one,
leading, as it does, through a rought
and brokenti country and frequently in
sight ofuind somuetimtes upon the hank
ofatnd across rivers, and by the villages
of' New~ berry, A lston, and Greenwood,
we lhad altogether quite a pleasant and
interesting ride of it. At Newberry
the cars .stoppe~d for a short timec, and
took 'aboard, among (others, the great
and worthy leader of' the temperance
cause in 8. C. and that excel lent man
-Jurdge (O'neahl. i Ie seemed to be
on his way (and we think we heard
so) L.u attend an extra Court in one of
the Northern Circuits and looked in
line health and spirits.
Wewere soon "all abhoaird" again, anid
travelling rapidlly were whirled thmro
Newberry, Lauretns, and Abberville
Districtsi, anid to Greenville village itn
Greenville Distriet. No nc. -identt be
fell the cars, nor any thting else occur
red to add more interest to our jour.
ney, if' we except the comling aeross
and passing by two large crowds oi
people in Abbherville District. The
lirst some two th~ousand~ or twenty-five
htundred were assembled at nlinety-.
six, to a free barbacue, (which they
appeared to be having done up on at
extensive seatle after the good old1 4th
ofJuly fashion,) given in honor of the(
i on. Mr. Brooks, theiriliepresentative
in Congress, wvho was to have made
them a speech ; and the other, even a
larger crowd than the first, at a station
on the R. R. called Donald's, to at
tend the trial of' some negroes whc
had murdered their overseer. Thc
trial was over when we arrived, ani
we heard that the negroes, ('2 of them,
wvere condemned to be hnig in shorteor
der. The principal perpetrator howevec
had fled, and they had not up to thal
time, beeni able to capiture him. W<
landed safemly at Greenville, thte termi
nus of' the lioad, at half past 4 o'cloclh
P. M. and were soon conveyed in at
Iomniiibus to the Mansion house kept bj'
Ervin, whore after a good deal of diuli
culty' we were crowded into a little gar
ret room with the promise of doing bel
ter for us oni the morrow ; a promise
which Mr. Ervin faithfully eptman
gave us very comfortable and pleasant
quarters. We found Greenville crowd
ed to overflowing and were informei
that the hotels in the place had not
been able to supply the demand
for lodgings, and that private houses
had frequently to take in boarders.
From all that we could see and learn,
the good people of Greenville seemed
to have been taken by surprise, and
to be entirely unprepared for the
amount of travellers, tha t her Rail
Road, and the cholera at the North,
have thrown upon her. There were
no enterprising Mitchell's or China's
there to be ready foralmost any emer
gency, that might place a swarm of
hungry men and women at their doors.
Mr. Ervin informed us, however that
he was preparing to put up a splendid
hotel and would be ready for the next
season ; and we learnt too that Mr.
Mclee, one of the wealthiest men in
the District, would also erect another
to vie with him in pleasing the guest
of "mhine inn." A mong the crowds
in Greenville, we saw the Governor
and several of his staff. The Hon.
Mr. Orr, Gen. Adams and many
others whom we might mention. We
remained here several days. and found
it quite a pretty and interesting village;
visited the new College, the falls and
the mills below the village which are
worth a visit from any one who finds
himself in the neighborhood, and en.
joyed ourselves in sight-searching, and
feasting uyon the good things provided
by friend Ervin. Upon the whole
however we were rather disappointed
in Greenville. We had heard it
praised as a most beautiful village
and were prepared for something out
of the common order of things. We
found it certainly quite a pretty place,
and with the best and most heautiful
situation we have ever seen, but then
the houses generally were not pretty,
and there was an appearance of want.
of ease, comfort, and neatness about
them we did not like. In short there
seemed to be a want of enterprise and
liberality in the peotle, which we
hope time and intercourse with the
would will soon do away with. When
ever the people of Greenville become
wide awake to their own interest and
to the many advantages, which nature
has placed in their reach it must be.
come a place of considerable impor
tance.
After seeing all that is worth seeing
in and around GieOinville, we left. for
Chick's Springs, situated some ten
miles in thie counitry, where after a
pleasant ride though quite a pretty
country we arrived, and found some
60 or 70 persons; some in search of
health, and others of pleasure. We
were stored away in a r(omi which we
regai ded as any thinig else than healthy,
but as we were there and could not get
backbefre te nxt dy, e determ-,
ined tomake the best of things, amnd
set out for a stroll to the Springs, and
through the surroundinig country.
WVe found the water possessing a
decided taste of Magmiesia and I ron
and wve heard that miiny had been
benefited lby the use of it. The situa
tion is a good one and the place might
be umade a very desirable summer
resort, but, at piresent it is ni't. Th'le
owners of the property are wealthy
men, aiid are not disposed to invest
capital ini such an enterprise; ini fact,
the~y are spueaking of selling it. The
company there, however, seemed to
be enjoyinlg themselves, and amiong
them were our friends T. M. L. and
J. W. D.. There were two reasons
for our leaving, wichje we did after
rmiiga couple of days, and re
turned to G.reenvil le. T1he accomnmo
dations wcre poor, and we were relia
bly informed, that fur purposes of
health, a week's tise of the waters at
Deaver's alias Sulphnr Springs, was
worth a mon01th at Click's.
At Greenville we procured a hack
and set out after din ner for Deaver\
by way of Paris mountain, aind Caesar's
ilead; quite a round about and zig za1g
route. TIhe first night we spent upon the
top of Paris mount ain, 9) miles from an<
11 hundred feet above Greenville vill
age. There wve had it as cool as couk
be wished, a fire would not have beei
unpleasant in the muorning. The hous<
Is a neat,, well kept one. Theli viev
1from the top cf this mountain surpass
Cs any thing that we had then eve.
seen, and we engaged ourselves unti
a late hour of' the night, and again ir
. the mnorning until we lf, in walkin;
raround the top of the mountain, (r
i at space of about an acre and a half,
i ud viewing~ the valley beow v as
. ail very beautiful. There, far belowv
you s~ee numerous farms marked ofl
Sas it upon a map, with their neat wvhit<n
cott.ages among the trees, and theii
.gr-en fields spread out around them,
- Occasionally you discern seine streamr
-winding its grand way through th<
, alley-a far off down to the south o
I us vou see Greenville, and still firthic
to the north and west, the whole range
of the Saluda mountains spread their
massive brows to your view and
beyond them still, rising higher yet
you catch glimpses of the Blue Ridge
in the far distance. It was indeed all
beautiful and grand.
The view from this place, a' night, was
quite different, but fully as interesting.
You see lights from the various farm
yards below and behold the valley
filled, as it were, with stars ; while oc
casionally there comes up the bark of
a dog or the lowring of a cow to tell
us it is peopled with living beings.
But I am giving but a poor account of
it. You must see it to know all or
enjoy it. At 8 o'clock we left for
Ceasar's Head, 28 miles distant and
up hill most of the way. The ascent I
of the mountain at certain places was
very steep and difficult, but we arrived 1
safely at the top a little before sunset,
and were very comfortably quartered
in a neat little cabin by old Mr. IIa.
good, the proprietor, who proved to
be a good old, rough, kind-hearted and
independent countrynanm, who did and
said what he pleased, and allowed
others the same privilege. We
found out that he was a rich farmer with t
large possessions away down in the
valley, and here too, upon the
top of the mountain, he seemed to
be surrounded with all the comforts 1
of a home,-he had his hogs and cows f
grazing over the sides of the mountain I
-had his houses and a plenty of at.
tentive servants, and his well.filled
turnip patch, garden and corn field up
on the top of a comparative flat space of
several acres. We remained with him t
a little over a day, found the company
staying with him qnite agreeable, and
spent the morning and evening in ex
ploring the mountain. We were shown
several very fine views, but none
equalled that from the rock known as
Cetsar's Head, (so named we heard by
the Ilon. Wm. C. Preston from its
resemblance to a head.) This rock is l
situated in the South-western part of
the top of the mountain and is the high
est point upon it. The flat space
gradually ascends to this point and
when you arrive there you are standing
upon a perpendicular rock 28 hundred
feet above the valley below and corn.
manding a view of the whole valley t
, surrounding country and moun. I
t:rins as far as the eve can reach. It is
not certain that it is a solid rock from t
the "head" to the bottom of the val
Iey; in all probability it is not, but it
is csfr ayo nm see from !ny poin
on the top, amnd piro jets even so much
that you cannot see the perpendicular
surface of it by looking over the pre
cipice. Th'le view is superior to that
from Paris mountain in every respect.
It is much more extensive, grand and
imposing, and is umany hundred feet
higher. Directly ini front of yon to the
South rises up~ Table Rmoek (9 railes
distant) and faces you wihm its flat
Iperpendicular side of 11 hunidred feet
of solid rock-onm every hand around
are scattered mountains rising up h~Iere

xtensive fatality.
Scrofula has baffled the skill of the most

isease in '-Dr. (aysoll's Extract (f Yet.
