TfHURSDAY, MAYf 28,-1840.
To the Members oJ the Stale Convention of
the Baptist :Denonination, in SouL
'Carolina.
DeariBrethr:The President of the Board
ofrTrusteesof-the Furman Institution, has re
cently inforned me, that the afiaits ofr he. Eng
lish and Classical department have ndergorie
such a change, since the annual meeting of the
Convention, as to render an Extra Session -of
the Convention indispensably necessary.
From the statements that he makes in his coi
munication,I fully concur with him in opinion.
I have, therefore, consulted the Board of A
gents oftheConvention on the subject, at whose
instance I am authorised to call extra mcetings
ofthe Body. The Members of this Board-con
cur with me in the opinion, that such a meet
ing sould be called on the present occasion.
Thus authorized, I do now appoint 10 o'
clock in the morning ofMonday, the 6th lay of
July next, as the time, and the scite of the fn
stitution, three miles fronWinnsborongh,as the
place, at which the Memcrs of the State Con
-vention of the Baptist Denomination in S. C.
are requested to assemble in Extra Session,
on the affairs of the Furnan nsti-tution. And,
.as the interests of the Denomination -and the
cause of God, imperiously require that the
meeting be held, I doearnestly and affection
ately. entreat every member of the Body to be
:present at the time a ointed.
WILLIAN B. JOHNSON,
President- -of the Convention.
The Biblical Recoriler, and the papers of this
State, are requested to give this notice one or
'more insertions, as it concerns the interests of
religion and science.
"A South-CaroUnian" is received, and shal
appear in our next.
RAIN.-On the 24th inst. several heavy
showers of rain, accompanied by thunder
and lightning, fell in this District. The
rain continued for a considerable part of
the 'night. It fell also on Monday and
-unceasingly on Tuesday. The weather
'for several days, was very cool and uncom.
fortable.
We copy to clay, from the H1amburg
Journal, an interesting account of the lay
ing of the Corner Stone of the Wiarehouse
of the American and German Trading and
-Insurance Company, at Hanburg, on Mon
day the 18th inst. We hope to see the
.day, when Old and New Hamburg will be I
-closely united by a commercial bond,which
-cannot but prove advantageous to both
-these towns.
The Whigs of Georgiaare making nigh
ty-eforts to carry the State, for Geucral
Harrison. They literally cram the mails, a1
with publications in his favor. These are h
-scattered far and wide. It behooves the C;
Democrats to bestir themselves, or they Ji
may suffer a defeat. The Whigs of Au- of
gusta, especially, are .usin. their utmost til
efforts to advance their cause. Two liar- "i
risou papers, "the Reformer," and "the
Log Cabin," are now publithed at that
place.
We have received the Pro-apectus of the &
.3rd Volume of the Augusta (Ga.) Mirror, be
to be published weekly. We give it a
.place in our columns to-day. A number
-of the Mirror, accompanied the Prospec
tus. The one before us, contains Selec- dir
'tpd Tales, Passages fron the journal of a to
Ruraliz.er, Desultory selections, Celebra- O
+ion of May day, at Waynesborough, Ga.

some maidens that we wot of, when we

thou has given us frowns!
Thou hast not been like the May of the
poets, ever bright and gently warm-with
skies of cloudless blue, and breezes
" Like -the -sweet South

"With wind, and cloud and changing skies."

smiles, we would have -ceased to praise
thee, at least for a twelve-month. But
thou hast given us some bright sunny days,
and delicious nights, such as we dream of
in Arcadian climes. For a brief time,
May was herself again. In a few days
more, and thou wilt join the months who
wear the name of Spring, and stern old
Winter and "the years before the flood."
We will not indite verses to thee as thou
departest, but we will borrow some lines
from Percival a native poet, who has sung
thy return to northern climes.

COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE.
Mr. Editor:
As the following remarks may nevei
have come withih the notice of many ol
your readcrs, they will perhaps be a sub
ject of some interebt to somic of them,
at least to that class embraced under the
head of w6oers or wooed. They are
founded upon the question, -What con
stitutes a betrothment!"
1. A matrimonial engagement, does
not consist inl any of the civilities or courte
sies of life which a gentle.man may extend
to a lady.
It is not unfrequeuily the case, howev
er, that these are mistaken for declarations
of love, and announcement is made at
once, that such persons are engaged.
Such is the imprudence of friends, often
and more frequently of the lady .herself,
that the common politeness, and attent'ion
which are ever due between the sexes,
are construed into proposals, for matritno
ny, and a young gentleman hears a report
of his engagement, while as yet not eveti
a dream of the thing has passed through
his own mind. By such imprudence the
lady, severs herself from the society, per
haps of an honorable and accomplished
miid, and brings upon herself and friends
the mortification and disappointment,
which will inevetibly fetlow in such cases,
If a gentleman attend a lidy to church-;
if he escort her to the assembly; if le
walk with her in the street; if he occa
sionally visit her for the sake of her
good company ; -the report is not unfre
quently set o- foot, by some mischief
maker or indiscrete friend, that the parties
are engaged to be married.
2- Neither does an engagement co-nist
in any politeness or social intercourse
which a ladv may extend to a gentleman.
There are young meu however of such
consumate vanity as to suppose that such
treatment is nothing less, than the strong
est intimation of personal attachment.
If a lady even look at them, they fatncy
that it must he a love allir, and cquiva
lent to the most direct proposals of iat
rimony.. A smile, a compliment. a social
interview, a walk, or ride of pleasure is
set down by such conceited coxcoblis. as
the mosit unequivocal declaraion of' live.
Thev tell of the conquests they made with I
Ian mir ot tritmph, and never know their
nisiake unil they learn it, i4n that reserve
1and neglect, which their condact so ichly
leserves.
S. Neither dloes an engagement consist
n the mjost unquanlified declaration of love
in the part of either the gentleman or lady.
This may all be, yo: no obligations are
ssutmcd,-no contract is formed. And
,et there are those who suppose that such
eclarations of attachment impose atnob
iation on their friend which cminot be
esisted or violated. The gentleman,
vlose province it is first to make such
isclostre, considers that when lie has
one this. lie has secured by right his ob
!ct. But not so. The lady may ) wholly
tiprepared for stich an event.- It is true
teci disclosure on the part of the gentle
an, in poses certain duties on the fenale
her circumstances are such as render C
Seigagement impossiblet she is jo1n b
itnposihlc by 1i
rery principle to acquaint himui immo- d
ately with the fact, and keep) the tranis
tiotn a secret. d
If her circumstances are such, as to
tider it proper for her to enter into a
atrimonial engagement, it is proper then
at she make his proposals a matter of itn
ediate and serious attention, provided tr
e is satisfied with his character and en- 2
rtains such an affefron for him, as will of
aider a union with him happy. di
4. A matrimonial engagement, then, is ot
baet the parties hiavingg made nmutual dis- so
>stures of affection for eadha oilier, in ha
ny of such disclosures, bind themselves, gr
promnises to hecotme each other's wed- we
I companioti for life. There must be sir
omrac: formed, in which the parties ag
dge themselves to each other for life, or set
~re can be n o engagement, Nothing tin
rt of this can be accounted a betroth- on
tut, atid tnothing more is necessatry to its fro
'fection. Ree.. la

Frla.-The alarm of fire was given thie
moriig'betwen l and 2 o'clock, and smoke
in a dense volume was found to issue
from the interior of the three story wooden
house, corner -of Elorlibeck's <Alley and
King-street, occupied by Silcox, Brothers
& Co., as a Furniture Ware House. By
great exertions Ihe flames were kept with
in the building. which has sustained -con
siderable damage. The stock of furnit u're,
which was valued at 89,500, belonging to
D. If. Silcox Sen., was entirely rued.-:
It was insured for $:3OO in the GeorgianI
Insurance and Trust Company. The i
btilding belonged to Mes-rs. Moliet &
Ulder, and was insured or .$3,500. There I
was no person that slept in the building
tnd was in later than o'clock in the eve
ting. Every door and window 'on the
Premises was closed when the flames were
liscovered. It is uncertain how the fire
iriginated.
We have never wilnessed a fire better
nanaged and more speedily extinguished
han this. The advantage of the Fire
,adder was strikingly exhibited, as a pow- g
rful stream of water was brougt to bear F
u the roof which could not have been ef- E
-cted in any other mode. The benefit of li
lie fire-well at the corner of King and (
lifrord streets was also -evident, allirdmg a
copious supply of water immediately at

This morning about 10 o'clock the cry
f fire was again given, and discovered in of

Ir. J. F. Walker, next to the South East ki

was speedily exting-iished with very.

NEW'VOLUME.
To be Published Weekly.!
PROSPECTUS OF THE,,
AUGUSTA MIRROR.
A Weekly Literary Journal.
,-BY W. T. Tuomrsox.
Contemplating a material iinprdvemeist o
the Mirror, on the commencement of the en6
siting volume, we have already commenced,'
making the necessary arrangements for thae
purpose, and as we look with confidence so ouir
tricuds and patrons fbr encouragement, we
have determined to give then this early notice
of our design.
Though a semi-nmonthly issue was deened
to be die most expedient in the comme
ient of the publication of the Mirror,
when the ground which. it occupied, being
cintitely devoted to litetatute, waisyet tmntthi
and when our domestic resources were yet in
known-we feel that tie time has now arriied
when a weekly publicatiop is demanded. En-4
tertaining this conviction, wehaver resolved 6&
isinc the ensuing volume weekly, and to make
such improvements in the appearance and plan
of the work. as will render it still more worthy -
the liberal liatrounge of the southern public.
Firmly believing that the only mneans requi.
site to placeour domestic literature upon an
egnality with that of any other section of the
union, is the establishmen~nt of a literary inedi
umn at hone, of sullicient standing and charac
ter to divert it into its proper channel--we are
resolved to render the lirror equal in appear
atice with any of the Northern journals of the
same kink, and ifthe friends ofsouthern liter.
avure will unite in .giving it the reputation
which southern genius and southern talents
are so eminently capable of imparting to its pa
re, twe doubt not that we shal be able to ren
er tube. much more acceptable to the south
With a view ofaccomplishing this design we
shall secure the assistance of an able adjant ih
the editorial department, and shall spare neith.
er pains ior e pense to give character and in.
terest to the W~rik
No material change wI be rmade in the plan
or arrangement of the Mirror, which will stifl
be devoted to general literature, except the in.
trodiction of a critical department for the rel
view of new works, which will be in the hands
u a gentenman of* atpproved taste and mature
Idgement. Tle ilirror Vill be printed on su
perior paper with handsome new type, and will
)e exec uted with thestrictest regrad to neatness
in taste ii its typo;raphy. Ech number wili
>e enveloped iii a neatly lrinted cover, entitled
'.lu nsta Mirror Xcws Sheet." ,comprisim foui
l printed pages, in which% will be givent
h0 wsbr Tr wEE, foreign and domestic,
arefIilly compiled from an extensive exchan
ogether with all the matter of interest usuall
ont taiiied in an ordinary weekly netwsp ager.
B. this arrangemien tle readers of tile Mir
or will, besides being supplied with a volume
46 large quarto pages of choice literature'
eceive as much news inatter in the course of
ie year as is contained in most of the newspa,.
ers of the day, and all for the addititional
iarge of only two dollars to our present sup
-ription price.
We sincerely hope the above plan for oui
ird volume wil meet the approbation of every
iend of southern literature. We have always
msidered the Mirror, embracing as it does ia
:idesign, the broad repulic ofletters, best adap
dto Joster our infant literature. More diver
ied ii the character of its contents than the
aver and more dignified magazine, ranging
i it does froi time the lighter to the more ele.
iled branches of literary composition,
" From graveto gay, from hiely to severe."
is certainly best suited to the tastes of the
eatest number; and while it affords equally
iolesome and rrefreshing draughts for the
all-read mind, it attracts and lures the youtg
drink of the Parnassian stream. We have
ined in the adoption of the contemplated im
ovemenuts to pl)ace the blirror upon an .equal
>ting with our northern contemporaries int
;ard to cheapness; and now, all that we ask
liberal share of that patronage extended t
1n by our pleple, and we pledge ourself to
ider ste Mirror equally deserving their sup
rt.
