TO OUR PATRONS.
As this number closes our present volume,
we have thought it expedient to have a "short
talk," with those to whom we have always been
thankful for their anpport, in this our arduous
undertaking, and for the last time, to give our
Defaulters a chance to come forward and wipe
of the stain, which if not attended to, will be
forever affixed to their characters, and which
we have. no doubt, if they have a conscience,
will hauntthem until then dying hour; for fear
of not being distinctly understood, we inform
them, that the cries of the Printer's Devil will
be rung in the ears of those who neglect to pay
for their papers, until they come forward and
obtain his forgivenese by sgearing off
We have, since we have taken the reins of
this establishment into our hands, devoted our
whole attention to'make its columns useful to
all classes ofcitizens, and from the support we
have received, we have the vanity to believe,
that, in a measure, our time has not been wast
ed, and that our labors, has, more or less, ben
efitted those who were so good as to patronize
us. We have had our good and our bad luck,
sometimes choosing the side of the question
with the majority, and at others happening to
fall into the ranks of the minority, but, at no
time, we believe, have we acted inconsistent
with our avowed Republican principles, having
always sought to espouse the cause which we
unhesitatingly conceived to be for the public
good. Our prejudices, in regard to this dis
trict, we acknowledge have always been great,
but we have tried never to swerve from the
good old adage '-do unto others, as you would
be done unto." To those of our patrons who
have stood by as, although opposed to our see
tional preferences, we have cause to the thank
ful; they have borne with our District pride in
a manner becoming Christians, and have repaid
us "good for evil." To those of our own creed
who have assisted us by their advice and the
"needfuld," we will merely say, that we will
continue on in the even tenor of our ways, un
till convinced that we are not supporting the
good cause of our country. To those who
have been, no doubt, at times "glad," upon
perusing our Journal, but has never found in
their hearts benevolence enough to "pay the
printer," we are at a loss what to say; so many
sentences of condemnation have been passed
upon dhem, that in the English language, we
cannot find words, hard, or soft enough, to
touch with Aonesty, their unrelenting, never-pay
nghearts; they, we fear, have their conscien
ces seared as with an" h ot iron," and had we the
eloquence of Cicero. we would not be able to
move them; we. therefore, most give up all
idea of procuring fronmsuch Defauters.that jus
tice which is our due, and leave their. to be
pointed at by the finger of scorn, or enter into
that hateful business, the lawc, to force them to
pay their honest debts.
We had long since determined to make new
arrangements with our patrons, on the com
mencement of our Ninth volume, so asfb make
it an object for them to pay in advance, and
save ourself the trouble of having to occasion
ally give them a disagreable hint in our columns
relative to our money concerns; we have there
fore concluded to alter the terms of our paper
to Two Dollars and Filly Cents per annum,
invariably in advance; Three Dollarsi if paid
within szx mouuths anter subsecribing; and Four
Dollars at the expiration of the year. We wish
it distinctly understood, that no subscriber will
- be considered as paying in advance, who ne
gleets to pay his subscription one month after
it becomes due; those subscribers who have
paid in advance for the Ninith volume, will
have their accounts creditted accordingly,
Those in arrears, have the privilege of pay
ing their accounts with three dollars per year,
until the fourth day of March next, after which
time the old terms of the paper will be exacted.
Subscribers at a dIstance, who have already
been notified of the amounts they are in arrears
to this establishment, and have not taken any
notice thereof, are informed,that so fast as their
subscriptions runs out, their names shall be
erased from our list, and their accounts will be
placed in the hands of proper persons, in
their respective neighborhoods for collection,
when, should they fail in collecting them,. the
names of those returned non est will be pob
lished on the Black List.

presentative the lHon. A. Bart, for which we
are truly thankful.
Mlaplnd.-The Legislature of this State,
JaMv passed a law dividing it into six Congreso
sional Districts. The election for Members ol
Congress, under the new law, will take place
on thelth dayof February next.
-f7 The Washington eotespondent of the
Charleston Courier, under data~ of the 10th
iist., says :-"Mi. MCDuflie's health appears
to be somewhat unproved, and.I perceive we
shall hear from him very soon, when the reso
lution of the Committee on Finance, declaring
that his tariff bill cannot originate in the Senate,
shall come up."
117 Captain M. M. Levy, has been elected
Sheriff ofKershaw District.
E7 The U. S. Senate have rejected the nom
inations of the Hon. Daniel Henshaw, as Se
cretary of the Navy, and the Hon. Isaac Hill,
as Supenntendent of the Navy Clothing Bu.
rean, and confirmed the nominations of a num
ber of Marshals and District Attorneys, as also
the entire list of appointments and promotions
to the Army submitted by the President. Mr.
Proffit, whose nomination was rejected a few
days since, and who has gone to the station to
which he was appointed by the President will
receive his outfit, as the Committee of Ways
and Means have provided for him in their gen
er civil and diplomatic bill.
07 The Richmond Whig of the 18th inst.,
contains a letter from a correspondent at Wash
ington, under date of the 15th inst., which states
that it is currently reported in that city, " that
the friends of Mr. Van Buren have in their
hands a letter from him, requesting his name to
be withdrawn as a candidate for the Presiden
cy." The Whig states that they do not vouch
fur the correctness of the rumor, but will en
gage for the veracity of their correspondent.
We feel satisfied that the above is all a hoax.
Changes.-The Alexandria Ga-ete, says:
"Many changes in our diplomatic corps will

The N. Y. Ezpress of the 15th inst. says:
" Cotton has been, and continues to be, the
the great leading article of speculation. It is
sold over and over again, from one pairchaser
to another. without being moved, and each hand
that passes it realizes a profit. The article has
been improving for sojne time, but within the
last few days there has been a constantly im
proving market. It is very unusual for the
market to continue so firm and so active, for
so long a time."
0T Candler Brown, the person who passed
off a considerable amount ofcounterfeit money
to a Broker in Charleston, has been. (says the
Southern Patriot,) arrested, and confined in the
Jail of Newport.(Tenn) Brown, at the time
of his arrest, had in hIs possession, some two
thousand dollars of the South Western Rail
Bank, which was the description of money paid
him in Charleston for the spurious bills.

We present to-day to our subscribers the
Constitutionalist in a new dress. To ena
ble us to do so we have incurred a .heavy
debt, and to enable us to discharge it, it it
of absolute necessity that we should adopt
a plan by which we can collect all stand.
ing accounts, and by which we can ensure
the collection of all debts contracted since
the beginning of the year. For this pur.
pose we have opened a new set of books,
with the view of closing every account is
the old set, either. by profit and loss or by
actual payment in an amicable or legal
manner. We'earnestly call on all those
indebted to as to come forward and settle;
they will but perform an act of justice to
uis, while they will also infinitely oblige us.
By performing such an act of simple jus
tice, they will enable us to free ourselves
from all embarrassments, and above all,
remove from our mind thoughts and per.
plexities which deprive us of the faculty of
concentrating our mental exertions to the
editorial department of the paper. To
approximate our rules as much as we think
proper atcthis time to the cash system, we
have established those that follow, which
will be rigidly enforced hereafter.
1. The names of subscribers owing for
more than two years, shall be struck out
of our list, if the arrears are not paid within
three months after this date.
2. Subscriptlons not paid in advance,
nor within three months after subscribing,
shall be charged $6 for the ti weekly, and
$3 for the weekly.
3. Advertisers whose accounts stand un
paid for one year. shall be hereafter exclu.
ded from the columns of this paper, until
such accounts are settled.
The editor has renewed his arrangement
with Mr. Robert M. Goodman, Ito be a
colaborer in the editorial department of the
paper. The editor hopes by this arrange
ment to give a greater variety to his edi
torial columns, and interest to the subjects
taken up for investigation and discussion.
All the attention and talents that both edi
tors may possess, will be devoted to the
examination of the great topics which ,will
be agitated during the approaching presi
dential canvass, which it is anticipated
will be one of unexampled interest and
excitement. The responsibility of the
editorial department will, therefore, de
volve on the present editor and Robert M.
We have received an additional supply
of job types, which, with the assortment
we toad on hand, will enable us to execute
all kinds of jobs as heretofore, with this
exception, that for such work the cash will
be required before delivery.
Charlesto'n Convention.-Our Temper
ance friends will no doubt be gratified to
learn from the communication in our pa
per of to-day, that the Rail Road Company
have made arrangemnents by which the
members of the Temperonce Conyention,
to be held in Charleston in Febuary next,
will be furnished with return tickets on tb'e

will afford an opportunity for a general at

r.rams, all of this District.
Died on tho 11th iust., in this District, Mrs.
EMI.v RAIwSVoRD. wife of Julia Raiusford,
Esq., and daughter of Capt. James liller.
This lady died in the 22d year of her age, after
having been married hut a few mouths. Death
under any circumstanees is a melancholy event,
but under circumstances like those connected
with the disease of this lady it. is rendered pe
culiarly painful. She was just matiried to one,
for whom she etdtertained the most sincere af
fection. She was apparently in the bloom of
youth, and surrounded by every earthly bles
sing that could render life desirable. She had
as well founded hopes of a lung and happy life,
as any one within the compass of our acquain
tance. But death came in the midst of all her
bright andlbudding prospect, and severed her
from the bosom ofher companion, and from
the midst of a large circle of relatives and
friends, wpose affections were centered upon
her. None can appreciate the affiictioin of a
husband Under such circumstances, but those
who havelfelt thi bitter pang of a similar be
reavement, Lils green fields, so bright in
prospect, sotiih in promise, are suddenly trans.
ferred in a cheerless desert. One unbroken
scene of desolation is presented to his mind in
whatever direction he may tart It. The only
consolation left him, in his adliction,is the well
founded hope, that his loss is her unspeakable
gain. She was tender and affectionate as a
wife, dutiful as a daughter, sincere as a friend.
She was amiable in her disposition. and her
unobtrusive manners endeared her to all with
whom she *as associated. In all the relations
of life she discharged her duties with a faith
fulness. and constancy, that won the respect
and esteem of all who knew her. The death
of this lady, was Indeed one of those mnserutia
ble dipnain of providence, which hunman,
foresight can neithet appreciate or understand,
and we have nothing left us but tobhow in hum.

hands are the issues of life and death.
