PRESENT STATE OF THE WAR.
The wvar has now entered into one of those
periods of pause and inaction which, even in the
most stoutly maintained contests, must of neces
sity intervene. Winter has closed the Baltic
against a further repetition of those maritime
promenades, wvhich, with the little interlude of
Bomarsund, have employed the energies or one
of the finest fleets that ever left the shores of
England. The same cause has put an end to
the campaign in Armenia, and Turks and Rus
sians may there resign themselves for the next
six months to a pence guaranted by the imperious
intervention of frost, snow, and ice. On the
banks of the Danube the flame of war has burnt
out, the Turks having neither food, clothes, nor
military stores sufficient for a seriously offensive
movement, and the Russians having betaken
themselves by sea and by land to reinforce the
army of the Crimea.
At Sebastopol itself the allies are looking for
shelter, ammunition, clothing, and reinforce
ments, and guarding against the possibility of
being tfrced to gain, at equal risk and equal
cost, another victory like that of Inkernann.
The Russians seem becoming every day more
sensible of the tremendous blow they have re
ceived, and, engaed probably in the difiiult
task of feeding and sheltering an army sent post
for our annihilation without anything but the
most portable means of destruction, can take no
offensive measures. Both parties are recovering
their breath for a moment before they close
again in the mortal struggle. This, then, is no
unsuitable time for recollecting some lessons-of
experience out of the mass of events, and trea
suring them up for future use. We have learnt
much, and have paid dear for our knowledge;
let us hope that we shall not require to pay the
price a second time in order to lix the lesson on
our minds.-I ondon Times.

THE FEELING IN RussIa.-Extract of a letter
from a respectable and well-informed citizen of
the United States to a friend in Washington, d::
" ST. P'ETERSr.URG, R USS1.\, Sept. 18. 1854.
"-DEAlt F: The war is scearccly begun.
There is no chance for any power, be it ever so
great to conquer Russia. The empjeror is only
preparing for war. Next year lhe will have in
the field, re dy for active battle, ono and a half
millions of soldiers, well drilled. The people
are all for the wvar, and he has no trouble in get.
ting soldiers, for it is with them a religious war.
They want the Christian faith to be sanctioned
over the world. They are the most devoted
people 'on earth, and the last crucifix will go for
the war before they give it up."
THE MAso:Ic FESTIvAL.-The celebration on
Wednesday of the Centennial Anniversary of
the organization of the Grand Lodge of Ancient
Free Masons in South Carolina, was a most im
posing ceremony. rTe Fraternity, in their
various Orders and Degrees, were presenit in
strong nunmbers, and the procession was one of
the largest ever witnessed in this city. The
day itself was one of the pleasantest of the sea
son-bright, balmy and invigorating, and the
streets were thronged with gratified spectators.
Having reached the South Carolina Institute. the
files were opened, and the procession entered in
inverted order, and was followed by citizens,
until the vast hall was filled to its utmost limits
-the galleries presenting a brilliant array of
loveliness and beauty. A fter singing an anthem
and prayer, an oration was delivered by Dr.
Samuel Henry Dickson, in its composition and
delivery, was worthy his high reputation as a
scholar and an orator. His Masonic breteren
evinced their estimate of its merits by passing
a vote of thanks, and requesting a copy of it for
publication. After singing an ode, the craft
again formed in procession, and marched to the
Masonic Hall, where the business of the day
was appropriately terminated.--Charleston Mer
DEATH OF SENATOR A. M. RUITH.-The Caro
linian of Wednesday says:
We regret to learn the death yesterday, at
Hunt's Hotel, of Col. A. M. Ruth, Senator from
St. Peters Parish. He had been ill for a week
with pneumonia, and was progressing favorably,
when a sudden metastasis from his chest to the
brain brought on apoplectic symptoms, and he
died from convulsions. He had every attention,
medical and social, and his devoted wife reached
him just in time to witness the last sad struggle.
He was a gentleman in high esteem, and a kind
and indulgent parent, husband and brother.
THEz RUSSIAN LoAN.-It is reported that the
Russian loan has been taken at St. Petersburg
by the house of Stieglietz, one of the most emi
nent banking establishimenits of the continent.
Mr. Stieglietz took the whole amount of fifty
millions of silver roubles, or about $35,000,000,
in 44 per cent. stock, on his own risk, at the rate
of 92. The loan already sells actively at 94 at
St. Petersburg. The New York Tribune says:
Foreign capitalists, such as the Hopes, in
Amsterdam, the Rothschihds, in Frankfort, with
whom Mr. Belmont is connected and others,
ave bronght a large amount, and, if we are in
frmed, a house in WVall st. is in possession of
he official imperial papers connected with this
peration. '1 he story told about it, is, that the
oan was made only to give the lie to the asser
ion of French and English newspaper that the
ussian Treasury does not enjoy any credit in
ussia. Its likewise stated that Mr. Takowlelf,
ofSt eter..',, ne of the richest owners of
mines in the world, whose accumulated ealth
alone amounts to some sixty or eighty millions
of dollars, wished to take this loan with his pri
vate capital, but this was refused by the Empe
ror, in order not to give an occasion to misre
presentations. We give this statement as it
reaches us, without vouching for its accuracy.

EDGEFIELD, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3, 1855.
G OWING to the unusual amount of business
that came before us in the Commissioner's office on
Monday and Tuesday, we found it utterly impossible
to prepare anything in the way of Editorial for this
issue. We will make ample amends in all the long
year before us.
IF any of our readers wish to enjoy the pleasure ol
reading two capital papers this year they should at
once subscribe to the " Southern Cultivator,"publish
ed at Augusta, Ga., and " Glcason's Pictorial" pub.
lished in Boston. The former is a number one agri
cultural work, while the latter is a handsomely illus.
trated and very interesting literary sheet. Read the
prospectus of these two journals which may he found
in another column, and subscribe as early as possible.

can testify to the correctness of the statement, as out

time since, and was pleased to find Mr. C's shelves
and counters literally crowded with an extensive va
riety of Boots, Shoes, &c. We append the extract:
Boo'rs AND SHES.-We called in yesterday at the
Boot and Shoe Store of Mr. R. Carroll, on Broad
street, nearly opposite the United States Hotel, and
found a large and well selected stock of Boots, Ladies
and Children's Shoes and Brogans. Those in want of
a good article, we would advise to give him a call.
tP WE learn from a passenger whoarrived in this

extended to the adjoining buildings and resulted in the
total destruction of five or six. The fire is believed
to have been accidental.
V From an observance of the opinions entertain
ed by several journals in various parts of the country,
there appears to be a general and determined move
ment for the repeal of the usury laws. May success
attend the undertaking.

THE YING YEAR.
'Tis shrived and low, the good old year,
With all its varied hopes and fears,
And fancies bright, and memories dear,
Were mingled with its joys and cares.
Full many a picture, fair and good,
In glowing tints the short months traced;
Though lost to view, deep in our hearts
The dear Kaleidescope is traced.
Spring with her flowerm, the Summer's ft uits,
The Autumn's glories, far and wide,
Old Winter with his hoary head,
Have vanished on the changing tide.
Bright Christmas came, the good and fair
Dear old December's darling child,
And sorrowing hear ts and fell despair,
Forgt their griefs, for joy, smiled.
Sweet maidens blushed when lovers spoke
In tender numbers soft and low;
And age forgot her waning sands,
And lived her childhood o'er onco more.
But now 'tis gone! and sighing winds,
Are wailing forth their sad dismay,
For Time with lifted scythe now stands,
To mow the lingering hours away.
The sympathising skies weep now,
And dew drops change to icy tears;
Like diamonds are they glittering low,
Upon the shroud December wears.
Far from .he East are rumors dark,
Of war and siege and bloody sttife;
While sad forebodings-lowering care
Upon the Wintry breeze are rife.
A few more grains and then the sand
Will all have glided from the glass;
With vulture greed, the vortex waits
T' engulf the crunibling dying mass.
Another twelvemonth! Oh ! how sad
The changes which the eiele fell;
And ere another year shall die,
Who then will lire's warm currents swell?
Who then shall sing the dying year ?
Or greet its proud successor's reign ?
Or who shall droop and fade and die
Nor see the old year out again ?

THE WEATHER, &c.

Fall and Winter so dry and cold, in the main,as the
present have been so far. We have had no rain to
.speak of now for nearly four months; and since the
first week in November, the cold has been almost
uninterrupted-the termometer ranging at sunrise,
at from 13 to 14 degrees below the freezing point.
Such weather is very unusual in this climate.
In consequence of the cold, dry weather, the
young wheat is rulyering very much, and if there is
not a change for the better soon, it will inevitably
But, should the weather remain dry and cold
along through the winter, although it would prove
diastrous to the wheat crop, it would work wonders
on our hard, red lands. Already are the benefits
of the cold to such lands perceptible. In walking
over them, the ground yieldr to the feet like a sand

spells were prety equ~ally distributed among the four
seasons ; but ntow the order is, three to four months
of wet followed by the sante of dry weather. For

could foretell what the wether would be for several

BARoN DEKALB.-Congress proposes to give
$66,000 to the relief of the heirs of Baron De.
Baron DeKr.lb was one of the distinguished
foreigners who fought for the American cause
in the war of the revolution. He was a native
of Germany, ar.d was born about the year 1717.
He entered the French army at ar. early age,
and rose to the rank of a brigadier general. He
was in this country during the French war of4
1755. under an assumed character, the object of
his visit being to obtain intelligence for the ben
efit of the French cabinet. He was suspected
and seized as a spy, but escaped, and returned
to -France 'after the conquest of Canada. He
caine to this country again in company with Lata.
yette, and entered our revolutionary army as a
volunteer. He was soon promoted to the rank
of major general. The Washington Union, in
referring to this bill in behalf his heirs, remarks
that there is something peculiarly interesting in
the history of Baron DeKalb, And says:
"11 e commanded the right wing of the Ameri
cans at Camden, South Carolina, and in that
fearful conflict he fell, in his last attempt to
achieve a victory, pierced with eleven wounds.
He was rescued from immediate dea-th by the
Chevalier du Bysson, his aid, who embraced the
prostrate general, and received into Ils own
body the bayonets intended for his friend, ex
claimed, " save the Barog DeKalb; oh, save tile
Baron DeKalb." The brave veteran survived
the battle but a few days. Before his death he
spoke these noble words: " I die the death I
always prayed for-the death of a soldier fight
ing for the rights of man." When General
Washington visited Camden, mny years after,
he went to the grave of the German patriot.
After gazing upon it with a countenance mark
ed with deep thought, he exclaimed, with a sigh :
"So there lies the brave DeKalb, the generous
stranger, who came from a distant land to fight
our battles, and to water-with his blood the tree
of our liberty. Would to God he had lived to
shar - its fruits!"
THE USURY LAws.-The Richmond Enquir.
er, the leading Democratic paper of Virginia
supports the repeal of these restrictious upon
borrowers, for such they are, by earnest argu
ments. We extract the following from its arti.
cle on the subject:
- It is a striking fact, that British experience is
in favor of taking off restrictions upogghe loan
of money as is shown by the following f.ets:
1. In 1818 a Committee of the House of Coum
mons reported against Usury Laws.
2. In August, 1833, the Laws were partially
repealed in Great Britain-bills of exchange
having three months and less to run, being ex
empted from their operation.
3. This exchange worked well, and in July,
1837, the restricltions were taken off of notes
and bills of exchange, having twelve months to
4. On the 5th of August 1854, Parliament
repealed the Usury Laws utterly. The vote
was unanimous to both Houses. It is now law.
ful in Great Britain to loan money on any rate
of interest, and on any description of property.
In the course of the debate upon the measure in
the House of Lords, the Marquis of Lainadown
used this remarkable language: "At the time
of the commercial failures in the years 1836 and
1837, it was found that the greatest relief which
was experienced was the result of a provision
which had been introduced not long previously
into the act for the renewal of the Bank Charter,
enabling the Bank of England to dispense with
the Usury Laws."

AUGUSTA RACES.-The annual Racing over

good, considcring the pressure of the times, but
ery creditable, and already there are on the

he first of next week, among them Col. Boyden

'ith the Maid of Or.eans and Magrath at its head.
Mr. Young's string, consisting of Ned Bick,

From present appearances we have every

DECLNE IN RENTS IN NEW YoRK.-It is sta
ed that there are one hundred and sixty-one " to

mnd that there have not been so many unrented
stores in that street at any time since the great
triais of 1836.7, as at present. The Evening
This is the natural result of the exorbitant
ents that have prevailed in that great thorough
are. Only a year ago, and the common price of
t first floor, 20 by 80 in a good location, was
B4,500 per annum; of a whole building, 25 by
30 or 100 feet, ten or twelve thousand dollars;
md we know one instance in which the owner
>f afine edifice, situated not a great way from
Canal-street, refused to fix a definite price for
:he store, (20 by about 45 feet,) because he had
cen offered so much more than he had designed
taking-one applicant proposing to pay 86,000,
md to deposit 20,000 worth of good stock as
ollateral security for the payment of the rent
md he didn't know where the excitement would
stop." That store has never yet been occupied,
i1s a " to lease" notice on it at the present mo
ent, and, may be ht.d, doubtless, for half the
unounI so repeatedly offered and .spurned.
ANOTHER CALU.NY REFUTED.-At the re
luest of many of our -subscribers, we repub
ish the subjolned paragraphs which appeared
n the fourth page of Wednesday's Courier, in
ur usual synopsis of the state of the money
The Montgomery, Ala., Mail of Thursday,
"intelligence was received here yesterday that
lotes on the Banks of Camden, Cheraw, and
Jeorgetown, South Carolina, were no longer
-edeeued in Charleston. This news created
some distrust among bankers here, and some of
Ihem, in conscquenco reject the notes not onsly
)f the institutions named, but all of all interior
out-Carolina Banks. This is suicidal policy.
rhere is not even a rumor that these notes are
iot redeemed at their own counters, Until then,
t is creative of unnecessary distrust, and pro
otive of very bad consequences to reject them."
We are deeply indebted to the Mail for its
rompt defence of our Banking Institutions,
id can assure it that we have every reason to
eilieve that they are beyond suspicion. The
stokholders are liable to double the amount of
hieir subscriptions, and there is no instance we
elieve on record of any bill holders ever having
-uffered from the failure of a bank in this State,
onscquently the citizens of other States need
ave no fear relative to the prudence of accept
ng any of our promises to pay.-Eds. Courier.
To the above we would merely add that the
wtes of all our interior banks are taken freely
ot, only at the banks ins this city, but by our
:itizens throughout the State; and, for our own
,art, we shall he umos. happy to receive as many
s may be sent us in payment for what is al
eady due to us, or fur new --' iptions.

DIED of Dysentery and Fever, at his residence
in this District, on the 14th December, Mr. RoarT-r
C. Josr.s, aged about 43 years.
The deceased was born near Athens, Ga., % here,
at an early period of his life, he professed religion
and was connected with the Baptist Church. He
removed to A ugusta in the year 1633 or '34. and
was married in Edgefield District, South Carolina,
in the year 1835, and shortly after settled in the
District. For about ten years he did not associate
himself wihh any Church and with frail human, trod
the open path of sin. lie was however connected
with the Red Oak Groi e Church, but for a few years
only, and again tempted nature strayed inebriety
and seemed without hope, till about lour years ago
when his heart forbade the thirst and he was re
formed to the great gratification of his family and
friends. During his ilitIess he said " my dear wife,
you are aware that I cannot get well, but I feel that
I shall die happy in the Lord," and but a few hours
before the final dissolution, he bade his daughter
farewell and encouraged her to meet him hereafter.
Ile leaves an affectionate wife and fond daughter
with many friends to mourn their irreparable loss.
DiED, on the I1th December last, in the 76th
year of his age, Mr. ISAAc BELL.
This short notice is not intended to de'ineate the
charneter of the deceasedi, but to speak of sonic or
his Christian virtues which was made so lright by
the many vicissitudes through which, in the provi.
dence of God, he had to go. And to use his own
language, " was blessed in them all." He lived to
bury iine of his children, and his beloved wife who
was confined to her bead for nearly ten years previ
ous to her death. These afilietions necessarily pre
vented him from assembling with the Church, which
lie loved, and was a beloved member thirty years,
having first attached himself to the Baptist Church
of Christ at Callaham's, then by letter to the Gilgal
Church in which he died. Ilis house may be truly
called the house of a Lazerus. It was there the
minister of the gospel always found a welcome and
acceptable home, and where many had the gospel
preached unto them. Though lie was by affliction
deprived of assembling with the Church, yet he .ad
much consolation in reading, until it pleased God to
deprive him of his sightthree years before his death:
yet he never murmured or complained, but frequent
ly had the Scriptures read to him, while under this,
to hin the greatest afflietion. le had suggested to his
mind the 3d chapter of Proverbs, which he had;(
frequently read to him, and whieh he reconnnended
to others. 1le has left four children andi many
friends to momrn their loss wreconfidt
