The Ruins of Greytown.
A correspondent of the New York Even
ing post, writing from Greytown, under date
of November 4, says that there are just one
hundred and three houses, partly finished,
now being built on- the ruins where the little
city of San Juan,.or Greytown, once stood.
They have mostly thatched roofs: some are
shingled. The houses are from twelve feet
square up to one hundred feet long by thirty
five feet, and are scattered over different
Iarts of the city. The inhabitants are not
able to build as costly houses as they had
before the burning of the city. There has
been great mortality in consequence of the
exposure of the people to the rain, which
came down in torrents for days and nights
upon them before they could secure any shel
ter. Many were found dead and alone in
the woods some tine after the destruction
of the city, and hundreds have left and may
never come back. Many there have been
left destitute who are unable to get the ne
cessaries of life, and others who were for.
merly rich are now unable to pay their debts;
the little cash on hand is absorbed in the
construction of houses and stores. There
is- no other place suitable for a city anywhere
else than where the city is now rebuilding.
All the Central States can have transporta
tion to and from Greytown, and the State
of Costa Rica is building a road from San
Jose to the little river Saropokie to the San
Juan, so as to send their produce down to
the city of San Juan, instead of sending it
around the Horn.
The State of Costa Rica has already giv
en charters to some Americans to niaivirate
the rivers San Juan and Saropokie for this
purpose, and a steamship company has been
organized, who undertake to transport pas
singers from New York to San Juan, up
t'ae river, thence across to Salenas Bay, on
the Pacihic, and thence to California. This
is good news to Greytown, and the people
were rejoicing and anxious for tie consum
MEXICO.-A good idea of the state of

following extract of a letter in the Journal
"1 The press is so restrained, and the ton
gue and correspondence so restricted under
inquisitional pains and penalties, the truth
so repressed, and only that which is favora

is di:icult to give the true state of things in
this quarter. One general liet may be ielied,
an and that is, that the revolution is gain

is ready to explode on, the first favorable
oppotinity, arid like fires long smothered,
will burst fourth with redoubied conflagr~a

extremities, aid through State organizations,
have been well conceived. In drawinlg the
central army from the capital to subdue
rebellion, it leaves the centre exposed to a

in our systei of acadenical instruction, which are
Reriouslsy felt, particularly in the liep4ration of
youn- men for Colege. It is utterly impossible for
the studeint or l'story, confined as he most generally
is to a single text history, owing to too great an
abridgre iment, or to a confused mass of dates, and
technical names, to acquire that clear and distinct
knowledge of his subject, wiieli he might do; (and
uniler a proper instructor would.) by reference to
other and higher sources of information.
A want of a proper appreciation of what an edu
cation is, has led inany into error i and the conse
quence lis been that many boys leave school less

Arrival of the Steamer Baltic!
FOUR DAYS LA TER NEWS FROM EUROPE
Niew YoaK, Nov. 26, 1854.
The steamer Baltic arrived this afternoon with
Liverpool dates of the 15th.
The news from the seat of war is important. Since
the lat advices incessant fighting, attended with ter
rible loss of life, had occurred before Subastopol. On
the 5th the Russians niale a fleroe attack on the
Allies, taking several batteries and spiking the guns.
This battle lasted from daybreak till four in the
afternoon, an.1 both sides claim the victory. Five
thousand Alies, 'and eight thousand Russians, are
sid to haive been left deadm on the fiel.l ! The next
dav the Russians renewed the attack, but the result
is not yet known. It was said tbat the Allies would
stormi Sebastompol before the Russins eculd recover
from their loasos, but this does not seem probable
other statements sayIng tha&t they must abaudun the
seige, unless speedlily reinforced.
lBoth palrties clmaim the victory in the contest on
the 5th before Sebt,pl. Gen. Carobert says the
Russians lost on that day 9.000 mn.a Menschikofl
says the sorties of the garrison on the 5th were emi
nently successful. They spiked 30 Fr,.nehi guns,
and defeated an assault mande by the Frenich otn the
town, inflieting on them a terrible lois.
Tne government of Fiance aud England had re
eived tile most urgent reqluests for reinforeements

of Edgetfield District, and the only surviving child
of Moises and Anna Gibeon, was born in-Newberry
Distriet, Sept., 24th, 1812, and departed this life
Nov. 22nd 1854; aged 42 years and 2 months.
At a very early period in youth site professed re

subsequently to which time, she 'exemplified in all
her relations of life and society the genuineness of
After her intermarriage with Mr. Able, she re
moved to Edgefield District, bringing. her certi
cate of memtbership from Trinity, and attached her.
self to the society at Bethlebam. By her consisteat
walk and pious demeanor she soon had the confi
dence and esteem of all who knew her.
Sn it was the blamtelesness of her life that niuglt
was ever prefered against her, for her character,
both as a lady and a christian, was far above suspi
cien or reproach.
In the language of him, whose appreciation of her
virtues, was evinced by every consideration and ct
oif affection which characterizes a good and faithful
husband, sie was social and affable to all, andnone
more kind and obliging. The needy she never
turned away empty, and to visit the sick and ad
minister to their wants was her meat and drink."
I er disease and Scrofula Rheumatism combineds
was painful and protracted, derying all.medical atten- -
tion which was timely and ably afforded her. In the
midst of the most acute suffering however, she was
patient and resigned; and would often sing and pray
and shout " Glory to God." Her enraptured soul
would frequently break out in exclamations of joy
such as " 0 ! glerious day, 0! glorious hope. rdy
soul leaps forward at the thought."
I1er moral and religious worth can only fiad an
approoriate estimation in the language of the Savior
-11 An Isralite indeed,in whom there was no guile."
She desired frequently to see her uncle Russe 6ibL
son, and hear him sing and pray. In a word, ha!-.
ing lived the life of the righteous she could but die the
death of the same. A short time before she breathed
her last she was asked if she was resigned to go, to
which she replied. " yes," and closed her eyes in
death to rest with God forever.
ler husband is left a little son, 4 years old, as a
memento of departed worth, and although the be
reavement is severe he " sorrows not as those which
lttvo no hope."
11er funeral was preached at Rocky Creek elureh
on Friday the 24th inst., from John 11 : 25, to a
congregation of weeping friends and acquaintances,
and her mortal remains committed to its mother dust.
"So Jesus slept: God's dying Son

acquired useful knowledge, and was willing to make
almost any sacriflee to assist her !nss-mates in se
