EDGEFIELD, S. C. WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 19, 13.3. flao THE Editor having gone to the great-Georgi Fair, we have seized the. ot.asion to get throngh thi -tightest press of advertisements we have ever yel encountered. After this, we hope to- give more reading matter on our inside, both original and- se lected. The Weather and the Crops. d7 a'dl'y spelt of several weeks dur 0 provetd eminently favorable to e saving of the cotton crop, y eiteshave ILady housed the great hulk of their cotton. Corn and pea-vines have also been gathered to-a considerable extent. If the weather remains as beutiful as it now is, for two weeks more, the great majority of farmers will have nearly completed their fall harvesting. We are inclined to think-that all the crops are falling a good deal under the estimates made during the wet weather of August and Sep. tember. If any one of them does not, it will be the cotton crop. But even that is not expeated to be any thing like a full one.. Corn is selling at- 75; cents per bushel at this time, wvhich fact goes directly to show, that a superabundance or it is- not anticipated. On the whol&, we shall. make in this section *a tolerable turn out only.-In the mean time,.the country is more sickly than we have known it for some years, and all are looking with more than ordinary anxiety for hoary Winter's approach. Judge-OaUs Letter. Wz cheerfully occupy a part of the space, reserved for ounrelf this week, with a letter recently addressed by Judge O'NEAItL to the Temperance Advocate. As we have said that we regarded his advocacy of the Maine Liquor Law from the Bench a " miss-step," it occurs to us as being fair and right to give our readers his Honer's remarks in reply to that point. In ex tracting'this portion, we concluded to publish almost his entire letten Ih reply to that part of it which seems intendid for us personally, we have but one remark to make; and it is, that we have never at tacked Judge O'NEALL in any shape or form without direct provocation on his side. Thank God! we have more respect for gray hairs and long-tried services. The Judge's expression of kindness we cordially reciprocate, while we ignord all application of the stercotyped allwion to.-, " gi--_- Tnany,,e much regret it, if any language of ours has had aught to do with engendering in his Honor's bosom the feeling of morrification spoken of in the last para graph of his letter. We are far from being unmind ful of the high public service he- has rendered his State.. Our Town. Wz think the town of Edgefield a great place, and therefore say so. Every one else harps upon the merits of his burg, and why may not we ? It is-a matter of no interest to the world at large how this or that or the other village may rank. But with " the world at large" we have nothing to do. Our remarks are generally meant for home-folks and neighbors, and by "home-folks and neighbors" we mean our readers. Now we have the weakness to think that " our readers" are fully up, in point of both moral and intellectual worth, to the readers of-any other sheet in or out of America. And, upon the same principle, we cherish the idea that our town-this same little village of Edgefield-is one of the greatest places "on top o' dirt." There are- a good many reasons for ottr saying so, some of which we will take this occasion to mention. In -glancing at them, wve want all to understand that wve hiave been more than ten miles from home several times, havo-" sen the-elephant" as often as most men and have-a-pretty fair rnotion of<"whvat's what," being able to distin gutish " t'other from which" in a majority -of cases. Thtus much being. premised, we go-on to indite the balance.. Firs' ar.d'foemost then, we were born in Edgefleld village. Down in the valley there, in the old house nearly hidden from view by the intervening boughs breatth of life. Ever poet, or orator, or man feeling, who values his~ reputation for sentiment, at the prire of a gingercake, will say, "tisis enough write not anotther line-we all give up, sir, that you would be unw~orthiy of your natal star, did you think otherwise than you have saitd of the spot of youi nativity."- But we prefer to travel a little further in nmaking out tile reasons of our preference. The truth is (please understand this remark "aside," as the play-hooks have it,) we have got an article of some sort to wudte, and we don't intend to be cut short by any one's grainting the questiorr. Secoendry then,. wve- grew up here. IHard by is the "schiool-boy spot," where, under the guidance of some score of masters from a Manity down to a Staf ford, our young ideas were taught to shoot. Every dell arid tdingle, every slope and hill-tide in the neigh burhoord are connected with some remminscentces of youthful frolic. Hlere again a sentimentalist pokes ir his nuse and says " The chord within my heart wvhich thou hast touc'd, Vibrates in unison nith thine." 'That may be very true, gnd fellow ; but pray re frain from interrupting the genial flo~w of our fancies, at least until we have got half way down a column You may then " tait it off" with any quotation you poetic lore may suggest. To avoid your interferenc absolutely, however, we will quit the personal an sentimental reasons, for the opinion which we hav tnade our text, and wind up -.iths the more matter-cl fact items of " this great argument." We proceed with the assertion that Edgefield is -great old place. We so assert, because, among othe things, she has given. to the State some of the fin "Msme-- 1n history-becausie lir citi stand their rights ang3 tie spirli e neso m because, in all the social courtesies of life, her mer and women have always been 'anfait'-and, to comt down to her more present and immediate merits, be cause she is still pursuing the good ord even. tenoro her way--hecaiise she is furnishing to all around- the very best facilities for educatinng the chiilrens of tbe community in a finished manner-because she hal all the advantages of a quiet, retired Southern town filled with a well-ordered and intelligent population with ample facilities for all the rational purposes o life and without the rabbleishi characteristics of Railroad-because, in short, she is all that mnty b clainied for n pleasant, healthy, pretty country village This summary of reasons we might enlarge upon and in truth wve had at first intend'ed to have done so; but. being convinced that they will not be con troveried and seeing that we have very nearly made out our half-columnn, we dismiss the subject as cor dially as we embraced it. Guano. Ta last number of the Southern Agricidtnrias (which, by the bye, is an admirable one) gives a lettes from A. B. ALLtEN, on the application of this famoui manure. Mr.. ALLEN seems to have been experi menting in thme article ever since its first introduction into the States. We clip the following extract as containing hints that may be useful to some of oui readers. " But of ibis I am already well satisfied, from oth-. ers' and my own experience, that the best, the most economical, and most reliable method of applying Guano to any crap whatever, (ninless the land earni bi irrigated at will,) especially in a Soamhern climate, is to spread it broadeast in the fail of the year, at the rate of 100 to 300 lbs. per acre-according to thme quality of the soil-and plow it in from three to twelve inches deep-the deeper the better-and ihen re-plow in the spring far the crop.. By this methodl the Guano will be gradlually givsng ont its ammonia, &c.. to the soil, and by re-plowing in the spring, it will be thnroughly mixed up and incorporated with it, so that corn, cotton, anid the most tender gardet vegetables, can be planted any wvhere in the soil so treated. without danger of the Guano injuring from causticity, &c. In fact, this is equivalent to making a compost of earthi and Guana, and saves much labor." In addition to his letter, Mr. ALLEN has transmit ted to the Agricultsurist a set of rules for the specific application of Peruvian Guano. We shall endeavor to publish them in full next week. At present we ive only the first one nf themt. It is as important as t is brief, and we advise those who are now about ~aying in their supply of Guano to bear fl in mind. looke ~ QIy i t .

EDrToR: On .the " Five Noteh" Ronad, leading fron Edgefleld C. H1. to Hamburg, about two hundred yards from where said road haves the Hamburg road tit Dr. Miis' plantation, there1 azis once a good bridge over the deep gully that. erosses the road. I say " onee" because there is no bridge now,. although the gully stil yawns an impassible barrier to travellers along the public highway. It is to be hoped that the Town Coutueil of Edgefield will soon have tihe bridge rebult, as) 'strangers might have their lives , lost, or at lcnbt, seriously endange.red by such a nuisance, particular ly in night time. It is true that the Plank Road has diverted most of the travel fronm the-Llaidburg and Five Noteh Roads, still a few personus n6isa'nd then yet pass the Five Notch IHighwvay, .i-hiehi should be put in proper order for the neighiborhiod use if for nothing else. BRIDGELESS GUILLY. From the Fairfieldl Ierald. V ~:-, TO . W. ELE -, A. H. Liitle,'before ti ey were en don to regret the loss of atnothier favorabl-e. comrade. F. WV. Selleek, the dashing, gay and chival rie Solleek is no more,'tis no dreant that harro ws our minid but a startling fact. F. W. Selleek wa~s among the gallant sons of Abbeville wvho rushed to the rescue of their country's honor wheni the alarm was sounded. and wa~s elected to the post ofl Lieuienant of companuv "E." 1 lirst'saw him in Chairleston, prior to our de part tire for the seat of. war.-there our acquaimt anee began, which soon ripened into intimnecy, which contilnued unbroken until. "Grim w ir had smoothed hit wrinkled front" and we had landed upon our native land. Lieut. Selleek possessed a spirit which made the lif of a soldier a pleaisure to hinm, for when gloom surrounded uis,-when despair bid fair to Iake the place of hope in our breasts-his exu berance of spirits would increase, and he acted upomn the principle of "Conic whait wilt l'il laug'h." From the ready attenmion to the comtu plaints of his command, he s1on1 bee-ie a favor ite, not only with theni, but with the ratnk and file of the entire Regiment. Among our superior omeiers and :among his equals in rank he was extremely popular, and drew around ham a large number of warm and Idevoted friends. His jokes were proverbial, and though his keen satire would strike some of hi~ victims to the quiek, still no offence wvas taker ror meant. It was not uincommaon after he hac Stortured some of his friends alm gtt parg lion. t hgo- lu ea~i .saae9s iflo say what yota es~ tut no0 onc else dare taunt mec thus. At Contreras. lhe soon gave evidenice of hi,~ tnflinching bravery by the uncommon coolnest and presence of mind which he dislayed during~ that short, but saingtiinary engagement. Even when the air seemed thickened with the balls oh the enemy, he allowed no opportunity to esenipt him, to pass a joke with his inearesnt neighbor. After the engatgement his compnny was de tailed to guard the prisoners, by which order he was denied the honor of a position inothe bloody drama of Chiurubusco-wvhich disaippointed him very much, but lie was too good a soldier to murmur. He afterwn'rds said to us, whlen we were lying on the field of Chiurubuseo, "Boys, I wished and prayed to be with you but ifate or dered it otherwise." At Chapultepec, he fotight with the coolness oaNeand the settled determination of a I Muraturging Abbeville to "come on." Stopping bitt a moment to breathe, after the sallen) foe had given up the Castle, he rushed on towards the Garita de Belen, and soon he was seen far in the adv'ance. On reaching the Garitan, he sprang up on the wall, and amid the booming of a hundred cannon-amid the storm of' grapie, cannister, andi rotmnd shot, he walved his handker chief, and rave three chaeers for South Carolina. The gallant Quitman, who was wvatching him in tensely, and seeing the exposed position he was occupying-for he wias literally drawing the-en tire fire of the enemy,-ordered him down, and in descending, he received a severe and painful wvound in the leg. He remained in hospital until his wround fully Irecovered, refusing to accept of a farlough, but preferringr to remain, and share the future toils and hardships with the few-the very few, who had passed through the fiery ordeal. Alas, poor Selleek ! Your piee will now be vacant, when your brother Palmettos meet 'round the festive board, but they wtill not forget thien, but even amid the scenes of festivity,. gey will Idroy a "siit tear," vrhen .your na~ is men tioned, and memory will hurry us back to those trying and thrillingz scenes which we passed throughb side by side, and which the world has long since forgotten. Brothers,-to us who are still permitted to dwell on earth, these solemn admonitions should teach us " to live " and teach us to " die." Our band is small, and death is fast thinninig our ranks, and before many suns have rnn their course, onr bodies will hare been laid under the elods of the tvalley, and our spirits inhabitants of that undiscovered country, from wvhose bourne no traveller returns. -~ ~ NW1 'J * ZAato dg d the boeu a gre." improv Lc The g .shops been closed; order and sobriety revail, w one 't here was disder and drunkenness. ist am sorry to say, as pgars from a little opposition to the-Naine U. it ii not.understood.

The wires are to fain. neet ait Liverpool with suibterraneain and sn's marine wires, extending to all imoportanlt points thrioughuont Great Britain and the continent or~ Sturing westwardly from Liverpool, a line will conneet that, port with Dublin, (via H-oly' head.) whence a subierraen wire will extend to Gahway. From this point, the sub-miarine cOmes ini pby13 again, until the coast of New foundhand is reached, a distance from Gahvay of about 1,500 miles. Here will be its station on the Amerienn Continent. From this station a subterranean line will streteh to somie conveml ent phn.'e oin the western coist of Newfoundl..nd, whence a sub-marinle wire will be laid down to Nova Scotin, where the connection will be again taken up by the subterraneani wirc, and conilin ued to New York. The whole length of the route from.Galwar' tol New York, as thins mark ed out, is about 2.800 miles. The cost per mile for the sub-marine wire, on the improved phmn.is estimated at less than $600; the cost by the method now in us", on the chonpest scale, would be fully $800. For the subterranean portionls of the route, the estimated colt iv about $2O00 per m~.~'~d?,1 ~ .. we cost Thle Sun thinks that thle line will be completed, by next nutuijin, so that the fastest steatmeras wiil be thrown in the shndhe.
