A large oak te noar te iesidence of James Terry, Aqr.., in theAflalge,. was struck by lightning: hi eb6hdrsd, Iho' were. playing in the piazza near iz providentially escaped, although the bark from the tree was thrown with such forice as to make an. impression on the- ceiling of the piazza, near them. On the plantation of Mr. Jasma Grifin, three miles from the vilinge. the lightning killed a fine pair of males, on carriage iurme, and colt. . Their has been severe showers of rain, ac companied with heavy thunder and sarp light ning, every day for the lIsi five days. Atan electiou hed on the 2d inst.. at the Coun cl halt, in the town of Beauftar for lutendant and Wardens, the following gentlemen were duly elected : IntendaaL-Col, Win. Fuller. f'ardmas.-Messrs. D.

Amkerst Colege.-At the annual comnuence meat, on the 22d ultimo, the degree of A.

L. D. was conferred on John Tyler, President of the United States. .We have received, throusih the mneditum of the Post Oflice, a printed carcular, fromt the Secretary of a mneetinag of Journeymen Prin ters, helst in Columabia on the eid inst., at which meeting it appears one of the craft, who is working in the employ of Saxer~t. Wa::, Esgr., on the Southern Chroxi~de, has been stig tnatized with the hateful name of RAT !-the term used by printers towarda any of their craft who are mnean enough to work under the stand ing wages of that body. Believing, as we do, that die wages of journeymen printers are now lower than those oif any other mechanie, we justify them, in the course they have taken, to expose the defaulter. Trhe following is the de, cription given in the circstLair: "RA LPH TAYLOR is abont Z feet 8 or Ii inches hign; dark hair and eyes; high cheek bones; straight nose ; about :'6 years of age; sanctified appearance : conceited intonation of: voice; souetimes wears whiskers; nsually dresses in a suit of black, aind c:,t ries a swoiol cane t'pped witatilver; an Ensglis/unanu by birth -on hewhole, an utnuung countien:itee, and as we ay down East, rathier " saft.'

This is rather an extraordi nary psroceeding. Our owna opinion is, that the iaw does not eontemnplate or anithorise the apponinda of a receiver utntil the piropier tri bunat has declared the charter forfeited, but if it he necessary to appoint for one, it is for all: *why not appoint a receiver for the Planters and Mechanics Bank as wellas for the others ? Real Iyit seems as if Judge King will usie his judicil powers just in any way that any body chooses to ask; not long since, lie granted certioraries. in favor of the Planters and Mechan:ies Bank, ugen cases that had never becen tried: and now, he appoints receivers for thme Biaiks before their chauters had been.forfeired. This is what we chi hanging first and trying afterwvards. It is not just either to the Banks or dhe peop.le. We have no objections to jiromcedings ofany kind authorised by law against the Banks. buit we do object to making the judicial pows 'rs o~r *1th government, the organa of partiality or op.

Thtere'voted for a delegalion did the s:pe..imi.sr a.- I knuw, all the South Carolina delegntion did so. - -The thought of sacrificing the brethren "Ga lusha and Meredith" or of prouscribing any one for conscienco sake by the Southesn delegation, itn concert with northern brethren, is inadusisible. For these teris involve thu idea of the privation of some right, or this violation of oLe frililci psle; neither of which occurred in tie election of the Board of lanagers. Membership in the Coaveton gies na right to office, since this right is acquired only by the votes of the mell bers. If the members shall, by their votes, put one matn in office, rather than another; no pri. vation of right is inflicted, or violation of princi. pile perpctrated. All the rights of our Abolitioni brethren were sacredly regprled in the Cotnvsen. tion: they made or seconded motions. they dis cnsswd subjects, and gave votes; they were placed oi connnittees. and reqested to lead in the de vittio of the session. The cttom of a ppoiunt. im a comtittee for nouiniating a Board of 31nagers was sspersedd by a resolution to a lipoint the Iloard by a general ballet. that each manu mlighIat vote free frotn extraneus iitience. It is to ie remenbered. that the loard is e lected for three years, and eitrusted with the chiarg~e of the whole Foreign Missionary eter prizedmingthis period. It ltchovedtheenembers I of Convention then to loik with great care, over 4 the length and breadth of tle land, and tlrosugh. ot the denominiatiofrom which the selection , was to be m:de.
