Faoar KANZAs -The Washintz:on Star learns
from. a gentleman who h1:is jutt returned from
Kai:sas. where he has been ever since the pis.
sage of the Territorial Government bill, that so
thr no slaves have been carried int the terrihorv,
though many Arkansas and Missouri slavehol
detrs and other Southern State citizens have ta
ken up " ehims" there. Up to a very recent
period the Sout hern settlers greatly outnumbered
those from Northern Sttes who were going in
there. Now, howver, the tide seems to have
changed. Accoridinjg to t ie views of this intelli
gont and usually well informed gentleman, ere
the- next Presidential electioni cotes oil, Kansas
will have formed her State Constitution and will
be knocking at the door of Congress for admis
sion into the Union as a State.
DECLINE IN BREAaSTUrF.-There was quite
a panlic in the New York flour market. on .\Mon
d:iy ; prices of all rades receded 5U a 75 cents.
Yesterday there vas a further decline in that
market of 25 a 50 cents per barrel. The cause
of this material reduction is increased receints
and an indisposition on the part of buyers to
take more than enough to satisfy their must
pressing wants. Wheat also gave way several
cents in the bushel. The day for cheap bread
is apparently near at hand. Alhhough unplea
sant news to farmers and tlour mercalints, it will
be hailed with no little satisfaiction bv conistimers
particularly the poor, who have for so many
'months been compelled to pay most exorbitant

AID To AUGUISTA.-We published, a few days
since, that a number of nurses and physiciants,
sent by thu Hloward Association of New Or.

volunteered their services if required. Ve have
now to announce that our worthy aindi ettergetic

THURSDAY OCTOBER 5, 1854.
WE are requested to say that the lIon. P. S. Bnoors.
our immediate Representative, will address his fellow
citizens on Sale Day in November next.

Death by Tellow rover.
WE are pained to observe th. steady and onward
march of the pestilence in Charleston, 4avanrnahi and
Augutsta. Among its victims in the first-i:,ned iy,
weuObserve the tnamne of Mr. RosHFT 11. WoonI. t!ltsv.
an estimable young man who had re.sitled in our vil
lage until a year or two past, w lien he nent toCharles
ton to push his way in the busy world. But he is
now numbered with the slain of our people ! His
own hopes and the expectations of frietids are at an
end forever. Rest thee calmly, poor youth, till the
great lay of the general awakening!
Since the above was in type, we have received the
Charleston Standard, of the 2d inet., from which we
gather tiat the feveris on the decrease in both Charles
ton and Savannah.
3'ever in Augusta.
THE news from Augusta is somewhat more favora
ble than could have been expecied. The caes are
scarcely so numerous, and the disease seems to ha% e
assumed a milder form. The Bar. of Health are.
nevertheless, particular in adviiing those who have
left the city to remain % here they are for the present.
We trust our ufflicted nei;hhors will soon have much110
better times. But it can hardly he expected that
business should become at all brisk until a killing frost
shall have visited our scction.
A Name Requircd.
WE have received several sketches from stome one
near Perry's Cross Roads ; but as they are unaccom
panied by any name whatever, we cannot publish them.
Asv who desire to know how-31illet will grow in
this latitude, can come and examine a beautiful stalk
recently deposited in our office. It was raisedl by 31r.
GEo. W. Jo.ss, of the piney-woods, and is creditable
hoth to him, his mode of cultivation and his soil.
Call and see.
Sale-Day in October.
A LARGE crowd was in attendance ott this occasion,
although but little property was sold. Of that little
we observed that one pineywoods tract, six miles from
town, brought only eleven dollars and a half per aere.
That won't do, gentlemen ; you must r ise your
figures a little, if it's giving a fair quid pro quo that
No news of interest picked up on sale-day. Crops
only so-so. Health of the people indifferent. Eler

sold yet-kept ont of market by yellow fever. Pouitry

published at Orangeburg CoutrtI House, by 31r. P. II.
LAREY. Turn to Iis Prospectus elne%% here, and learn

Wr.call the reader's attention to a letter on our first
page. athiressed by Col. F. W. PicxF.:s:, of klfie ld,
ID 110n. J~ues L. Ointt, the Congressional Represen
tative of the oll Pintkney District. It is in reply to
one of enquiry frioo Mr. Oia, and purports att the out
set to consider the Electoral question mainly. Iltt
the writer seems to have followed tilt thi bent of his
thoughts, ittitil, in adlition to the point immitediately
before him, ie has dietcssed anioter antier of the
gravest mo.ment: we mean, the reason of tie Com
promise made in 1808, betw*een the tpper and lower
divisions of South Carolina, upon the matter of Rep
resentation in our State Legislature. Ti tnr view,
this portion (f his letter is well worthy the attentive
consideratioi of every South Carolinian; nor is it
really so nuch a departure from the proposition di
rectly involved in Mr. Oa's query as at the first
glance it would seem to be. In view of the ground
(taken bya good many who oppose giving the election
of Presidetitial Electors to the people) that it is anti
conservative, arid therefore dangerotis, it was natural
to set forth what the writer believed to be true conl
servatism, as enitra-distinenished from that timitid
lritiking back from all innovation whith passes with
soie for the genuine principle.
'T'rte conservatism, nith the citizcris of any free
State, conista not so much jn objecting to all chiatiaes
in the establiihued order of things as it does in arrint
ing to the people with a good grace ait a trtistng
spirit the exercise of sneh powers as tfy rihltfuelly
aind reasonably cluim. It is better to "give an inch"
than to be forced by an excited majority to yield "an
ell." There is much force, we readily adunit, in that
tild addage which teaches men to " let well enongh
alone." But it seems equally clear that the muxot
loses all its virtue, when to inake it a rule of action
in atny givein in-tance produces unfortuale dissen
sins in the Suite. Sieh, we apprehend. will lie the
case in South Catrolina, if those who control the ac
tion of our Legislature shall attempt to kill, by their
iegatives, the proposition (which is daily gainin
ground) to throw the election of Presidential Ehi-etors
before the people. It is a rational arrangenenit imope
rionly called for by the circumstances of our peculiar
sitnatito, and one which promises toact at least as well
as the present sy-tein and much less clisinly. We
have yet to see or hear any valid objections to the
change contemplated ; and we caution getilemen to
ask themselves the question (and to weigh it well)
whether it will otit he the truly conservative course
to recognise at once the justice antd propriety of the
innuoation. Here, it is a mere question (if ptolicy,
