The Rural Carolinian.?Colonel
D. Wyatt Aiken, one of the leading
planters of this State, has become associated
with Mesrs. Walker, Evans &
Cogswell as joint proprietor of this
valuable agricultural monthly. In his
notice announcing the connection, Colonel
Aiken says: "In thus unitiner
mj'solf with the enterprising firm of
Mesre. Walker, Evans &Cogswell, more
than a single motive will of course be
laid at my door; but chief amongst the
inducements isau earnest desire to lend
a helping hand to develop and publish
i the developments of our beloved
South. Whatever of agricultural advantages
I may have gained after a
practical plantation oxperienco of
near twenty years, shall bo given to
the Rural for the bo ?efit of others."
Messrs. Walker, Evans & Cogswell
stato that Colonel Aiken "will dovote
his time to travelling through tho
Southern States gathering pratieal information
from all sections for the benefit
of our readers, enlisting corres
puuuuuis, esiaonsmng agencies and
extending our subscription list."
The January number of The Rural
Carolinian has intrinsic merit raroly
equalled, and must secure a favorable
consideration for the new firm.
Among the contents we especially notice
the articles on Fish Culture, Liebig
and Agricultural Chomistry, Facts
and Figures for Farmers, Agriculture
of Russia, the Sea Island Cotton
Question, and The Culture of the Olive?all
of which are first-class articles
of practical-interest, and evidently
written by men thorughly conversant
with the subjects of whioh they
treat. The illustrations of this number
are numerous and handsome, and

J Endowment Fund of Erskine College.
Tho College is located in our midst
and is known by reputation to all of
our citizens. It has been in successft 1
operation for nearly t hirty years, and
can exhibit a past record of which
she may well be proud. Ilcr graduates
are scattered throughout the
length and breadth of the South, are
bearing their full share of labor and
"Tho Faculty of tho College at prosent
consists of Rev. R. C. Giier, I).

Young, Professor of Mathematics ; W.
S. Lowry, Esq., Professor of Latin ;
W. Hood, Esq., (late State Treasurer)
Professor of Ilistory and Belles Lettres?all
experienced teachers, and all
Southern men.
"The Endowment Fund secured for
the Colleges before the war, was in a
great measure lost by that disastrous
conflict. The Agent for the
College, is now attempting to obtain
an endowment for a limited time,
and earnestly appeals to tho friends of
Education and of the South to lend a
helping hand.
"Those who subscribe and pay twenty
dollars per year, for fivo years, will
bo entitled to send one son or ward
(white) free of tuition, for tho said five
years; or five students for. one j'ear,
by paying up tho whole subscription.

to fill important stations, and if she
does not sustain her own institutions
for tho benefit of her own sons, she
must send them to tho North to be
trailed, or she must abandon tho education
of her own boos and import
learned men from tho North to bo our
judges and statesmen, our lawyers,
physicians, editors, professors and
ministers. There aro students at Erskine
at present from North and Soutn

Living Writers of llio South.
There is probably not a man iti
the Southern Slates belter qualified
for presenting to the reading public
what the South has to show in letters,
than Professor James "Wood
Davidson, of South Carolina, whoso
careful and well considered work
on living Southern writers has just
appeared from the l'ress of Carleton.
llimsclf the master of a puro
style, with a pure taste, cultivated
l>y liberal study, and a judgment
free from prejudice, he was admirably
qualified for the tas k lie assumed,
and has discharged it well.
While by the very nature of the
case lie was tempted to magnify his
subject, he has been betrayed into

of the spirit of fairness which
marks liis volume, we may oito his
treatment of the much vexed quesj

! lyric of "All Quiet along the Potomac
to-night," which no one can
now pretend to belie 'C was written
by the Southern soldier who claimed
it as his original production,
Mr. Davidson has made out a long
list of Southern writers?the number
extends to two hundred and
forty-one?some of whom are

at all, but it cannot be denied
that be has done a real service to
the country by his pains-taking
examination of the whole iield.
Many readers of the North will bo
surprised to know how large a part
of the current literature of the day
is the work.of Southern men and
women. Perhaps no three writer^
of fiction in the United States have
so many readers and admirers (wo
say this as fact, and apart altogether
from their literary merits) a.s
Mrs. Terhune (Marion Ilarland),
Mrs. E. D. E.N". Southwortb. and
Mrs. Augusta J. Wilson, ?iceEvaue,
3*et is is not generally known that
all three are Southern by birth.
We note somo trival errors in proper
names, as of Miss Crane (now
Mrs. Scemullcr), author of "Emily
Chester," improperly given as Grain;
and we mark some omissions, as
that of Professor Scheie De Vere,
of the University of Virginia,^ a
prolific writer and translator, and
that of John C. McCa'ue, now a
clergyman in Delaware, and there
may be others. But these errata.
and omissz may bo corrected and
supplied in a second cditiou, for
which we cannot doubt there will
be a demand.?New York Eoenivg
