ILrTARY ENcAMPMENTs.-The sub- v
joinedremarks of the Charleston. Obser. t
vor, a religious paper, upod the Military
Enicamprent system of the State. will be
found 6elow. -We are not prepared to say
with the editor, that the law establishing
encampments "is productive of much
greater injury than benefit." But we do j
believe, that-much evil of a gross charactor i
is occasionally attendant upon encamp
-ments. which it becomes all good- citizens
to check as much as possible. This can in
a great measure, be accomplished, by a i
strict evforcement of law. .
By a law of this State', provision is
made, for military encampments, compas- C
ed-of the officers of each brigade, to be
held for five days every two years. From
the reports which we have heard of the
recent encampment, in the vicinity of t
Charleston, it seems obvious that the law
referred to, is productive of much greater
- injury than berefit. One object. and per
haps ihe main one of the Legislature, in
paesing the act, was, to provide for a more.
efficienrmilitarf defediee. in cases or edirl
gency, by bringing the officers of the sev
- e brigades together,.and subjecting them
to the discipline, and instructina them in
the tactics of a regularly organized army.
Now, whatever may be gained in this
respect, it .admits or a serious. question a
whether more, much more, is not lost in
the tendency of these encampments to
break down those naoral restraiits which. v
after all. aff'ord the surest protection to any
-community. The discipline of an encamp
ment, however rigid-. cannot prevent visi
- tern from attending. And it is out of theh
question to enforce discipline as in a regu
lar army. From the reports that have b
reached us, we are inclined to believe,'a
that however free a. great proportion of t
those whose duty called them there, from L
any improprieties of conduct, there were t
others who availed themselves of the oe ~
casion for throwing off-thc-se restraints
which are essential to wholsome morals. ~
And it-is in this way that "evil commun
icat ions corrupt good morals"--that sober
mnen become druukards-and that a loose
rein is given -to all the vile affections of
the heart. Details are unnecessary. It
mayt however, be proper to remark, that t;
while there were many whom no tempta- d
tion could seduce todepart from the strict p
rules of.virtue and sobriety, this was far si
from being universally the case, There e
was much *deep drinking ; and whatever
anJ wherever tlat is the case, the attend
ant immoralhties are matters of course.
It will therefore, depend upon the so
ber, moral teople of tlie State to decide :Ii
whether they will retain upon their statute E
book a Law which is productive of little G
benefit, but -whaich is the proliaic source of - I
immense, incalculable evil. i

Fire.-At about 10 o'clock, on Tuesday

When our paper went to press last

'leas was still sitting, and did not adjourn
nmil 12 o'clock on. Saturday night. A
ast amount of business wns transacted
ut there were so many cases which could

forts to secure his private fortune, and comn
hains bittetly of the interception and breaking

f his note is extremely haughty--rather that of

the Siglio XIX observes that it is in sutch
