EDGEFIELD C. H. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24. 1'16" DMr.-Toor.r, the State Geologist, is in this ieigbbothood at present, and is ready to oxa -mine certain portions of the district. Cotton Blooms -Col. F. W. Picnazts, had Cotton blootms at his river plantation on the 20th inst., and at his house plantation on the 18th inst. Last year he had them the 6th of June, and the year before on the 9th of June so that tiere is about ten day's difference be tween the time of their coming this year and last. We are informed that the Cotton crop is ex cellent, where it has been properly cultivated. Cotton.-Our Hamburgeorrespondent under date of 20th inst.. says:--" The sales of this article has been on a limited scale for the past week at irregular prices, ranging from 54 to 7 cents. I think there has beet,-lore disposition on the panof buyers to operate for the last few days, but they have not been able to purchase to any extent, on account of the small quanrit) offering. and the disposition on the part of hold ers to advance prices. I have not heard of a single sale since the report of Liverpool dates to 29th May,but from what I can learn, do not believe they will cause any change in prices. Provisiom.-Corn is plenty at 65 to 70 cts. Flour $5 to $5 50. Corn Meal $1 to 1 12&. Bacon 63 to 7 cents, for Hog round ; Hams 7J to 8 cents. Lard 8 to 10 cents. We call the attention of our readers to the letter of the Hon. Armistead Burt, which gave us the first intimation of the settlement ofthe Oregon question. The Weather for the last eight or ten days, has been very fine for the fermers-rather warm with occasional showers. except that for the last two or three days, we have had cool windsand nights. We are gratified to learn, that the Hon. Geo. MlcDuffie has been elected by the Senate Chairman of its Committee on Foreign Atffnirs. Under the circumstattces, it is a deserved earn pliment to him. ilousE of RE PIEsENTATIVE.S. 13th June, 18' 6. DEAR Sin:-The President. on Wedneslf last, submitted to the Senate, for its advice, the proposition of the British Government, for a boundarybetwegn,the territories of fthe two, --,_aouatn 1o the Nrti t'con'sY.~ The j: position,.is understood to be, I think correctly.. the 49tb parallel to the Straits of rueca-tie common use of the Straits to the Pacific-Van conver's Island to England. and the free navi. gation of the Columbia river, during the Char ter of the IIndson's Bay Company. The Se nate have been laboriously engaged in consid ering this proposition, since ii was cdinmiinmi cated, Ist.even.ing, bya vote of 38 to !', thle Seniate advised the President to make a treaty, accepting the proposition of the British Govertn mient. Of course, it will be made, aitd imme diately ratified'by thme Senate. Your obedient ndrvant.. A1iIST'EAD BURT. To the. Editorof the F~dgefield Advertiser. The Baptist souther EConvention.-T he Rich ,aoid Ipublican, says:-" The a ppearanmce of thas body, now in sesion itn this city, is attrac ti',e to the spectator, as well from the general - decorum of' its tmembers. as fromi the ingh re pnttation acquired by umany of them ini the dis charge of their public furnctionis. The venera ble President, Dr. Jonssoy of South Carolina , presidsswith a digity, grace, and protmptituode. whiecrensure'general respeot-anmd the emtinernt oider which prevails, shows that there is an absence of much of that ambitiom for persoanal distinction which too often mars the harmony of public assemablies. 'We were gratified to find that the hospita ble traits of our citizens were developed, unoh. trusively, but effectively--a commtittee beim g in attendatnce ai, the door of the Church to as sign to distant bi-ethiren comifortable quarters during their sojourn int the city. "The Convention will probatbly be ini ses sion during the whole week--its sabject beitng one of more than ordinary importance." We learn from the Laurensville Wecekly w Herald, that on thme 39th inst., a terrible H-ail Storm, passed over the planttations of J. G. Klink, Esq., and of D. Watts, Esq., laying waste their upland crops. and eati.ely *ashinag away their bottom land corn. Mr. Calhoun.-The correspondent of the Charleston Mercury, (Nous VuaoNs.) has the following paragraph. which is as eloquent as it isjust and appropriate: " Of your delegation in Congress. you have just cause to he proud. especially of himt, who wso long in the councils of the country, has shed a heroic lustre on the verb name of tonth Car olina. I kntow of no more strikinig proof of the high reverence nniversally felt for this great statesman. titan the late course or forbearanice towards him by the whole press of the conry wvith regard to his vote on the Mexican war hiJL. Although standing alone on this exciting atni delicate questiotn, so perfect is the convic tion ol his hi h integrity, and the pure motives wvhich actunted him, that not a word el imptuta ton orfeinroach has been heard from the whole press, Whig or Democratic. It is so clear that conscientious. convictiotis overruled all lower and meaner ,motives of interest and popularity in zhe~course he pursued, that even those who most hate him, dare not strike at the majestic moral courage which crowned his whole con duct. I tuderstmnd that all his friends,although they mhay have differed from him, were never more umted to their'admiration of his tran scendent gitalitiae s a man and a statesman.'" Thir 'Is butt a-jui tribute to a man, who gift of the people, and probably never will ob. tain it, has yet, obtained that, which to a states. man of his own virtuous sentiments, must be a p rize of infinitely more value than the presi dential chair, or any other honors or places hat men could bestow upon him In a long and ardnous political life, in which he has fre quently contended, at the most exciting periods of our history, with the greatest intellects that this or any country has ever produced ; and in which all the unscrupulous arts of party war. fare have been fully levelled at his good name he has won a reputation fot integrity and hene esty, that even the breath of suspicion canno: taint-that even the tongue of slander canno' assail. The Oregon Quettion settled -There is nowa no longer a doubt, that this exciting questiorn has been finally and a-micably settled. Ti'. treaty has already been signed by the Secro'a ry of State and the British Minister. and has been sent to the Senate for ratification. In consulting with the Senate, on a mntter of such vast moment to the peace of two great nations, and in sacrificing his own views to the wise decision of that body, Mr. Polk has cer taii.ly acted properly-he has deserved well of the country. The consequences of this termination of our dispute with England, will be a revival of trade with Enrope. with all its attendant blessings, and a speedy settlement of our difficulties with Mexico. The co:respondence from Washington gives us the intelligence. (whether true or not we cannot say,) that even now, the President has said, that the Mexican war will be brought to a conclusion. within sixty days, by the mediationi of the British Government. One thing is sure, that whilst we are threatened by no other na tion, and left to direct -ur undivided energies against Mexico alone, we can crush her to atoms in a few months at the farthest extent of time. It is certainly' a great blessing to this country that the Oregon treaty has been signed' at this precise point of time. It is said at Washington, that if the news of the Mexican war had reach ed England six days earlier, before Mr. Pack enhan's instructions had been sent to him, the treaty would never have been formed at all. We see by the English news, that the intelli gence of the small ski'rtnish near Point Isabel, produced the ino't tremendous excitement in Great Britain. There isno doabt but Mexico. in the beginning of this wa'r, strongly counted on a rupture between England and the United States It is also said, that if any other notice than that of the Senate-the H ouse notice for instance, had been sent to the B. itish Govern ment, our contro-ersy would never have been t djisted withot arms. . When we carefully look at these facta, orr very highest ndmiration is excited. at tho wis. dom and ftresight of our great Senator Mr Calhonn. IIe now has the credit, both in En gland and this country, of settling the Oregon quesion, and lie verily deserves it. A At the cottanncerient of the present session of Con gress, wpvkmaouv that an universal gloom hung over'the adole of this nation-every man thought thatwar with Great Britain was ityvi tahile. The ranks of the war party were con s'iydv swelling, and no one was fund to re sist their cry. At this critical junnture in our affairs, Mr. Catlhnn, amrid the fierc,.st d'enin. ciation, offered a set of resolutionq, and took a position-, which has finally cleared tip our poli tical horizon. and saved the state froni a most btloody anad disastrns war. 'The .Army on dhe Rto Grande.-F'onr the last w,-ek or two, we have heard very little of imn portance from Genaeral Taylor. He is still stationaed at Mlatamioras, watha thec greater hody of flis forces.

It seems' however, that thme first movement of intvasioni has beena made preparatory to orne on n more extensive scale., On the 7th instant Lieutenant Col.

Taylor in a short time, uinless Mlexico should sue for' a suspension ouf hopitailties.

Fiften days'later from Eurep-A rii of the Great Westen-The inews by the Great Western is unusually important. The Bill to repeal thae Corn Laws has pass ed its second reading' in th..

Quebec, took fire, at the close ofen exhibition of some chemical dioramas, and fron the terrible rush of the crowa to extricate themselves, the ways of es cape were obstructed, and forty six human be ings perished in the flames. Many of them were of the most respectable citizens of Que bee. The !fecklenburg (N C.) Jefersonian, says: That for a considerable time, the rain has fal l"n incessantly in that part of the State ; that ow ground corn hap been completely submerg ed in w ater for several days; and that great 'ars are entertained, that the wheat crops have 'on very seriously injured. We regret to say, that we see complaints of htis kind coming from others of our neighbor.. tr States, and also, from different quarters of 'ir own State. We rejoice, however, that impression is general, notwithstanding this :rawback, that crops,in the main, will be very soundant this year. Extremely 1Warlike.-At a countjconventidit and a public meeting of the citizens of Meek leuburg, N C., the, folloiviuig resolution was unanimously adopted: Resolved, That the causes which brought ail this war are so plain and incontrovertible, that all must see it to be an aggressive was on the r art of Mexico,-sn:, with these facte beftre him, we think any citizen of America. who would dare declare that our government is in frult for this war.-that it is wrong and unjust, must be' s TRAITOR sow-with the spirit of a liartford Ciinventioi Federalist of 1812, and a ToRY of;be Revolution. A pretty fieice denonstraion, we wvotiisdy. We have "rare birds" in this co'intiy. For the Advertiser. MESSRS. EDITORS :-n iotciang rmy communication of the 5th instant, on the, subject of t ol. Wigfall's resolution, the Editor of the Hamburg Journal, is pleased to say, that I have "uunnecessarily ohtrud ed myself upon the public. irn the mdtte#." This I consider to be a lolty position as sumed by the editor. and' if he feels not the novelty of his' dizzy heigiY, he certainly deserves more credit for assurance, tha: sound discretion. I hold that, whatever may be the sentinieuts of the Jo'urnal to the contrary, no man who has the spir it to speak, is too humble to be heard; and no man deserves the name of a free man, who will not speak, when his rights .are attempted to be invaded from any quarter. The Journal says: " Had we have mis represented his (my) remarks or his (ny) position before the public, there would tave been some apology for the appear ance of his (my) communication;" "but of this be does not compain. My be ing placed in a false position before the public,:is the very thing that I did complain of. iy.langusage was. "It is not more in vindicatio. of air. Calhoun, than to cor rect a palpable error in the statem'ent as to tile p'sition 1.idc'pied in the discussion, &c.". The error of .which I complained was, in placing ie tid coinptrny %ith Borne half -doen gentlernerr-who -ap3otfol o[ Wigfall's resolution.

Wigfall's resolution, then I have not been misrepre sented by the J.ourtial's statement. Upon the question of Iaying the resolution upon the tanle, I dil not vote at all, for reasons at least satisfactory to myself. Whilst my feelings must cordially responded to the sentiments cotaained itn the resoltio'6i, I l'elt satialled:upo'n refetion that Mn.
