Messrs. Editors : The unmerited r' buke
you have recently received for expressing
your preference between two rival candidates
has called forth the following article.
Without seeking in the slightest degree to detract
from the merits of others, Col. Brooks,
I may say, is one of the risincr shitosmon nf
"whom South Carolina may well bo proud.
"Paul waxed bold."?Ada of the Apostle*.
Bo bold, ye ministers of grace,
Amongst an erring, sinful race,
And shun not to declare to all
Our sad declension by the fall I
Let not your lips or tongue be tied,
Before the haughty sons of pride:
Unto the "filthy dreamers" show
Their present guilt and future woe;
And to the sordid misers tell
Their brother Dives is in hell.
Bo bold, ve Datriota of tho Innrl
With cenaure and with shame to brand
Tho wretch who'd s?ek again to light
The torch of terror, awe and fright,
That lately blazed throughout the State,
Attended by the fiends of linte:
Behold, ye patriots, our foe
Await* to strike a deadly blow;
Like brethren, therefore, we should be
Prepared to meet tlie enertiy.
Ye who conduct the public Press,
Your'censure or your praise express,
Regardless though you rouse the ire
Of Tillage gent or country squire.
Be bold the statesman to commend.
Wlio shows himself the pnorLE's khienw;
Bo bold, likewise, and blame bestow
On him who shows himself their foe.
Thus faithful seutinels you'll bo
To guard our lives aud liberty.
Ye Carolinians, one and all,
The sainted dead upon you call,
To trust not those who shall foment
Disunion, strife, and discontent;
If in your councils they should be,
They'd stir up strife and enmity?
In heaven itself, should thev cet there.
The blade* would soon kick up a flnre,
And have some censure? or complaints
Agnii.st the seraphs or the saiotsl

he demanded her name to be stricken from

not only to provoke tho reprobation of men
but also to arouse tho indignation of devils.

her playmates she was an Indian. Some
three or four years ago, she waa lodged in 1

'rom her children that the girl said she wa
Indian, she called her up and questioned he
ibout it, when she said "No, she was no

yas offered as evidence, and, strange to say
ulmitted. But it had the opposite effect a

L'he most striking testimony adduced in th<

These are very curious facts, and of mucl
importance in toe distinction of races.

d Some ultra-benevolent souls in our country
o both North and South are beginning to ad:;
vocate the re-opening of the slave trade, not
is on the score of gain to America, but of
is kindness to the poor benighted Africau !
e These poor deluded creatures would be so
e much benefitted if removed from their own
i- land of darkness and cruelty to this land of
- light and love. I'ts a pity to let them refs
main where they are another day ! So then
n icl Miijns anu raiis ana Doats ot all sorts be
,f prepared and let the eighty or three hundred
V millions of these ignorant and vicious sons
>f of Ham be transported to our shores where
-- they can make cotton and rice, hear the
r Gospel preached and learn to read the Jii%
ble, for if we bring them over to the states
s to enlighten them it will never do to shut
r them out from the light and close the Word
t of God Against them. Let them come then,
s one and all, for if one, or a dozen should be
transported to enjoy the blessing of the Gosf
pel and the sweets of civilization, so should
t tho millions. Let them all come and givo
i, them a free passage too. "Where is the use
j of acting niggardly in this, the greatest beb
nevolent enterprise of the age? But why
- confine a work of so much benevolence to
1 benighted Africa ? Why not bring the mill
ions of India and of China, the Sons of Ja'
pan, the Cannibals of the Isles, the Lapland2

According to the last Census, there are '

we will do well. In the whole state of South j

Drunkenness, Somnambulism, 01
To eitlier ono or tho other of these cause;
is to ho attributed the fall of Simpson Berrj
from tho trestle at Newberry, on Thursday
night last. Simpson Berry was ono of the
prisoner^ mol important witnesses in the
case oftheStntfl JKviiino*
I for the murder of Jesse Scurry. He testified
to the fact that Scurry threw two pistols into
his buggy, before starting to Cross Roads
Church, in Newberry, on the day of the occurrence
of one of the difficulties between
the deceased and the prisoner, and his testimony,
doubtlessly, went far to strengthen
the jury in tlio conviction that Scuriy whs
contemplating an attack on Gunter. lie
had also been in the employ of Jesse Scurry,
as an overseer, during tho last year of his
life, which relation was dissolved by the
death of Scurry, and Simpson had engaged
his services for tho coming year to another
gentleman. So much in relation to t|ie
character and occupation of Simpson Berry.
On tho night of the eventful Thursday,
Simpson's room-mates report that ho was
perfectly sober when he retired to bed, at
about 11 o'clock at night, and strange to
say, ho was found under the trestle in a
mangled condition at an early hour on the
iics.1, muming, Having tallon a distance of
about thirty feet. Now tho question that
puzzles usis?how did Simpson Berry get to
tho trestle that night, and who or what is
to blame for his fall ? Four or five persons
lodged in the same room witlihim, but they
can give no account of the time or manner
of Simpson's exit from that room. Can any
body do it ? We must come to one of three
conclusions in tho premises, and first, that.
Simpson was either druuk and slipped out
of the room late at night, and as he "pnced
along upon the giddy footing" of the trestle,
stumbled and fell into the vortex below, or
secondly, tlmt ho was seized with a fit of
somnambulism, and was led by his evil spirit,
or some other spirit, to this dangerous
precipice, or thirdly, that some one who was
not pleased with Sijrnpson's testimony in the
Gv.nter case, having either gagged, or, by
some "foul potion," deprived him of reason,
bore him uvi tit armis" to tho trestle, and
pitched him from that lofty emiuence,
thus reeking their vengeance on him. This
last supposition, we learned, whilst in Newberry,
is agreeable to the account which Mr.
Berry himself gives of his fall. lie states,
we learn from good authority, that ho was i
forcibly seized and thrown from the trestle
?that he recognized tho man who 4id the |
deed, and if he should recover, -./ill dtsc'osc |
ma name, mit thinking <Ij.it his cJianoos for]
recovery are doubtful at present, lie persists
in refusing to Jo so. Strange idea!?that
Newberry is a a hard old District! It may
bo that the Ncwberriau or Newberry Sentinel
can throw some light upon the transaction.?We
shall see. " ...
Mr. Berry's physiefefot -jegorts him to be
in afgpry precarious condition. One of his
irmB was broken by th?ftkll, and one of his
legs so badly itojured as to make it necessary
to amputate it,* besides injuries upon other
parte of his body. We nope if it bo true
that Simpson was thrown from tha
thaithe scoundrel who did it, may be detected?tried
for his life?and that the setdiet
of the. Jury may not read Uf*ror Gentry."?Southern
