VALUABLE PLANTATION AND TURPENTINE AND TIAIRER Land for Sale- The subscriber intending to remove to the west, offers for sale his plantation in Robeson county, 7 miles from the village of Lumberton, lying immediately on the main road from Lum berton to M-Jiion Court House. The tract con tains twelve hundred and fit'ty acres. It lies within live miles of Lumber River, and is very heavily timbered, as none has ever been cut from it.

A great majority of the buildings con sisted of the principal stores, and contained large quantities of goods. It is impossible to ascertain the loss, though between two and three hundred houses have been destroyed, and an immense amount of property. Two-thirds of the stores in that portion of the city were destroyed. With regard to the insurance, it is impossible to be correct. The greatest part of the loss falls on the Hartford (Connecticut) offices, which are deeply involved. Vast amounts of property were insured. The VVesleyan Church was destroyed. Full 2000 persons are by this dreadful calamity ren dered houseless. Telegraphed for the Charleston Mercury. Baltimore, Nov. 15.

The New York correspondent of the Wash ington Union states the following singular Ltcts: 44 Among the note-wortlij things one sees here is actually the importation of pro visions from Ireland! Thus the Herald of this morning contains an advertisement of a merchant ottering one hundred hamp ers of Irish potatoes for sale imported, of course. To the stranger this would look like competition in the agricultural way with us. But the fact is not so. We have a large Irish population, many of whom, having the means, biy such importations only for the sake of reminiscences. They of course sell higher than the American grown, as they are with us altogether a fancy article. After the same fashion, the manifest of every steamer from the other side of the Atlantic exhibits the importa tion of quite an invoice of English South down mutton, hares, pheasants, partridges, cheese, porter, ales, &c, and French des ert nick-nacks which in no manner com pete with similar articles made and pro duced here being sold at double the prices at which the American range, to gourmands of the city, who pay anything charged for the gratification of their palates. The same correspondent, changing the subject, gives the following religious news : 'The Rev. Mr Ryder, of Georgetown College, lectures this evening at the Taber nacle before the Mercantile Library As sociation, upon the history of his order, the Jesuits. That immense hall will doubt less be crcwded, as, apart from the great interest of his capital subject, he brings with him a distinguished reputation as a savan and scholar. On Sunday evening Bishop Hughes lectured to some 3,000 persons, at fifty cents per head, fthe pro ceeds being devoted to charitable pur poses,) upon the rise and decay of Protest antism; while at the same time the Rev. Dr. Dowling, a Baptist clergyman of dis tinction, lectured to almost as many on the rise and downfall of l'opery." So they go in this tit-for-tat religious world ofNetv York. Bishop Hughes is doubtless one of the ablest disputants in this city. He rea sons with ti e logic of Webster, the per spicacity of Calhoun, the elegance of Foote, the eloquence of Clay, and the re search of Benton." Look Out. A letter received at Green ville from Newberry, says that a man named Haw-lev, the forerunner of Robin son & Eldred's Circus, arrived there the other evening and handed a couple of num bers of the New York Atlas to some gen tlemen. The Atlas was filled with rank abolition sentiments. Hawley was waited on and examined by some of the citizens of Newberry, and a large number of copies of the same paper were found upon him. He received notice to quit, which he did instantly at 9 o'clock at night. The Town Council of Newberry have given notice that Robinson & Eldred's Circus would not receive a license to exhibit in that village. Charleston Sun . SOUTHERN MERCHANTS. SOUTH CAROLINA BROGANS.

We are glad to find the following sentiments in the Salisbury Watch man, a whig paper: "For our part we have come to this point: The fugitive slave law must be executed, or we are ready to sever every tie that binds this Union. It must be executed. or else we go for setting up for ourselves) and if our rights cannot be secured to us under the Constitution, we must stiike for them with our own arms. The question has come up, now, in a form which all can readily understand: it comes up in a form which will not admit of hesitation on the part of a single man in the south; there can be no further plead ing; as much as we regret it, the time has come, it this law is to be nullihed by the free Slates, when every man in the south must show his hand, and that promptly. He must either be for us or against us. There is no middle ground here' Letter from California. GREAT SUFFERINGS OF EMIGRANTS. Stockton, California, Sept. 30, 1850. I have just conversed with a gentleman from New York, who, with three of his brothers, arrived here yesterday, after a four months' journey across the country. He states that about 70.000 persons are on the road now. The four brothers started with two six mule teams, plenty of provi sions, clothing, money, etc. , and arrived in Stokton with the loss of almost every thing. He states that on both branches of the Platte the cholera prevailed to a horrible extent, hundreds dying daily. The wa ters of the Platte are thick and muddy, and he attributes the escape of his party Irom sickness to their precautions in boil ing the water, clearing it with isin-glass, and making it into tea or coffee before drinking. The graves of emigrants, he says, were thick at every camping place near the Platte. In crossing the great Salt Lake, their sufferings were indescri bable. The sand was knee deep, the sun broil ing hot; not a tree was to be seen ; there was no water, and their provisions were all gone. Fortunately, after passing over about one hundred miles of this hideous desert, theycame across a man who had gone forty miles further, found a good spring, and returned with two barrels of water. This water he first sold for gl per gallon, then SI per quart, then glO per pint, and as the emigrants came along, each choaked almost to death and complete ly exhausted, his prices raised, and no sum he could name within the power of the poor emigrant was refused to be paid. When the water was nearly all gone, a man came along, who for three whole days and nights had drank but a half pint of fluid. He was almost dead, and begged for some water. The answer was, I have not enough to last myself and animals back to the spring." $30, glOO, grOO was o lie red in succession for one little cup full of water, and the dealer refused it. The wretched emigrant threw down 8700, all he had in the world, and by main force grasped the cup and quenched his thirst. This statement seems incredible ; but my informant is a man of intelligence and probity, and his word cannot be doubted. Soon after leaving the water trader, the party came across a company who had a little flour, which they would not part with until the offer of 840 per pound tempt ed them to sell. One bbl. of flour was sold for 8800, and glad enough was the purchaser to get it. Upon arriving at Carson's river, they found provisions plen ty, but very high. Flour was 82,50 per pound. A single meal of two small pies, coffee, and some pilot bread, cost them Sll per man. Provisions, it tvas expect ed, would soon be much lower on Carson's river, as my informant met immense trains of provisions on the way from this valley. Whilst crossing the Sierra Nevada moun tains, the party was enveloped in a snow storm, and at the last pass the snow fell six or seven inches in one night. This pass is not over 150 feet in width, and is on the side of a deep declivity. Above the road the rock towers almost perpendi cularly, 250 feet, whilst below, it is almost equally abrupt. At the bottom were seen innumetable carcases of mules, cattle and wild animals. My informant says it is the almost universal opinion at Carson's river, that not one-third of the emigration can cross the Sierra Nevada mountains before the winter sets in and renders the road impassible. He thinks they can winter very well in Carson's valley. His party expected to meet with, and thought they were provided far every hardship. He says he has travelled extensively through Europe, but no scenery there equals in sublimity and beauty, many of the views on the land route across this continent. Neveithetcss, he declares he would give all he possesses in the world, or all he hopes to possess, if he could only banish from his memory the many hurors he felt and witnessed on his. terrible journey. Yours, truly, O. P. XV. TREATMENT OF SCARLET FEVER. The following article from an eminent physician of Washington will possess in terest for every family as well as for the medical profession : To the Editor of the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. "Washington-, April 11, IS50. Sir : As everything relating to the treat ment of scarlet fever a disease almost as fatal and destructive as cholera itself is of great interest to the profession and the public. I desire to call the attention of your readers to the mode of treatment re commended by Dr. Schecmann, physician to the fviugof Hanover, as contained in a recent number of the London Lancet. The plan proposed by Dr. S. has not received the attention from the medical profession in this country or in England, so far ns inv knowledge extends, that its importance demands. My experience with it is now considerable, and I think I can safely re commend it as a very valuable addition to our means of conducting this dreaded dis ease to a satisfactory termination. It is philosophical and rational in theory sim ple and efficient in practice. 1 hope a fair trial will be given to this mode of treatment by the profession, and the results made known through the jour nals, that its true value may be definitely ascertained. I subjoin the most important directions given by Dr. Schnecmanti, in a somewhat abbreviated form. HARVEY LINDSLY, M. D. Treatment of Scarlet Fever by Inunction. From the first day of the illness, and as soon as we are certain of its nature, the patient must be rubbed morning and even ing over the whole body with a piece of bacon, in such a manner that, with the ex ception of the heat!, a covering of fat is everywhere applied. In order to make this rubbing-in somewhat easier, it it best to take a piece of bacon the size of the hand, choosing a part still armed with the rind, that we may have a firm grasp. On the soft side of this piece slits are to be made, in order to allow the oozing out of the fat The rubbing must be thoroughly performed, and not too quickly, in order that the skin may be regularly saturated with the fat. The beneficial results of this application are soon obvious. With a rapidity bordering on magic, all even the most painful symptoms of the disease are allayed ; quiet, sleep, good humor, appetite return, and there remains only the impatience to quit the sick room. The advantages of the treatment indicat ed may be summed up as follows. 1. The improbability we might almost say the impossibility of the patient gett ing cold while the skin is thus covered with fat a point in no disease more im portant than here. 2. The dry brittlcness of the skin and the tormenting itching are by it not only materially alleviated, but generally entire ly removed. Every practitioner knows how often the itching and burning of the skin in scarlet fever are unendurable to children, keeping them constantly in dis tressing movement, and robbing them of sleeping. Hence children are generally well satisfied with this process, and often ask for its repetition long before the time is come. S. The influence on the physical func tions of the skin is still more important. Duiing the coming on of scarlet fever the skin becomes diseased, in consequence of which it loses its vital power. During this illness, and until anew covering is again prepared for the surface, the func tions of the fekin are very imperfectly per formed, or during the desquamation pro bably not at all. In order to explain the extent and importance of the impercepti ble functions of the skin in a merely mechanical view of the matter, the read er is referred to the accurate experiments of Seguin. which fix the quantity of matter thrown oft' from the outer skin at eleven grains per minute in a grown person, and therefore more than two pounds per day. What efforts must it cost the organism to lead so large a quantity into other paths, in order to throw it off. when the skin is so: ,t , lncapaoie or uotn? 4. With this disappearance of the des quamation) disappear all those bad symp toms which attend on it. In order to give a striking proof of the importance and bad influence which the interrupted functions of the skin produce on the healthy activity of relative, even if distant organs, we may cite the fact that death is always the result where more than one-half of the skin has been destroyed by fire or boiling liquid. A similar destruction of the skin ensue in scarlet fever, with this difference, that it takes place gradually, and thereby the or ganism is better enabled, by employing all the activity of the body, to find aid against the mipchief which must result from the cessation of the functions of the skin.
