Heretofore large quantities or cottoo were

and have actually incurred tbe penalty or tbe

DEATH OFt APTAIS FRIIK.
Another soldier or the Mexican war his
departed. Oo Wednesday last, the remains
of Dr. Clarence II. Frick, late a Captain io
the Second Regiment or Pennsylvania Vol
unteers, who served io Moxico, were interred
at Danville, with military and masonic hooors
Capt. Frick commanded the Company of
Volunteers from Danville during the late war
with Mexico. When the Company left Dan
ville for the soat or war, he held the post of
First Lieutenant, aod en tbe death or Capt.
Wilson, shortly alter the arrival or th Com
pany in Moxico, be succeeded to the com
mand or tbat body as Captain. Tbe Company
onder bis command, distinguished themselves
oo numerous occasions during tbe war, and
the grand reception or the Company at Dan
ville, oo their return borne, is ao event tbat
will not be soon forgotten by those who were
present and witnessed the ceremonit.
Captain Frick, like many others victim
of tbat war, though he escaped tbe danger,
or battle and tbe perils that constantly beset
tbe soldier, returned with shattered health
and a constitution, not natnrolly robust,
greatly impaired. To this, not long after, was
added paralysis, which rendered bliu an inva'
lid during the remainder or bis life.
Io stature, Captaio Frick wag small, per
haps not over 5 feet 4 inches io height, but

and commanded tbe respect or all who knew
him. He leaves a wifo and three children,
and a large circle of relatives aod friend to
mourn bis departure hence,
LOTTERIES.
The whole country appear to be flooded
with lottery circulars, aod the continuous and
persistent efforts or these rascally ticket ven
der seems to indicate no little success, and
a tbere never will be a time when "tbe fools
are all dead" tbey will cootioue to flourish.
One or the last communications received froai
one or these villans, contains the following :
"Many a poor man has beeo, through es,
uddenly raised from a life of struggling bard
ship to one of wealth, luxury aod splendor,
'lti same chance is open to you by tbe ex
penditure or u,, trjfliDg ium 0- $io, ,Bd ir
yoo will only once v., yoor lack io 01lr 10t.
terv yoo will, there le f.Uw Houbt, suddenly
find yourself a rich man." '
To this is added an offer, and of coure itiba,
to all, tbat ir tbe bolder or tbe ticket does
not draw at least $5,000 tbey will send ao
other package io ao extra lottery, free of cost.
Such bold-faced fraud aod self-evident villainy,
one would think could deeeive no one posses
sing ordinary intelligence.

this trash do not pretend to explain how tbey
can make money by giving away their trio,

country, and tbat tbey bave right to cutch

'A a bright example to those who sit io

is an extract of a letter dated at Savannah :
"Execute the orders ; remittances will be
made previous to your shipment. The great
rivalry between this city aud Charleston is at
ao end. Savannah is triumphant; Charles
ton is commercially dead. It will take
twenty years before she can recover her
former position. 1 regret to say that Geor
gia bas, io a measure, invited South Carolioa
to seceJe, tbiokiog thereby to ruin her rival
io trade. Tbe trader of our city have for
warded funds to South Carolina to keep up
the excitement. All tbat we want i about
nioety day more of tbe trade of tbe North

giving tbe latter Slate the port of George
town and Cbarlestoo. Sooo many of the
Charleston traders will locate themselves in
