R. F. WV. ALLSTON, President of the Senate. JAMES SIMONS, Speaker of the House of Representatires. A letter from Riga, dated the 1st ult.,says: "The fears of a hostile visit from thge ships f England and France, entertained by our gov ernor, were so great as to induce him this sum mer to have large quantities of stones sunk in the channel to our harbor, so as to prevent the entrance of at least the ships of the line. And, indeed, this measure of precaution has been executed with such success as entirely to im pede the navigation. Now that the British ships are withdrawn, several loaded merchant vessels endeavored to leave the port, but the obstructions were found to be insurmountable and after several attempts to get out, the ships were obliged to return to the port and discharge their cargoes, some of them having suffered considerably damage from bumping on these artificial rocks, though the captains knew ex .ctly were they were situated. The entrance to our port may therefore be considered as totally impervious to hostile ships of war, and in the event of a peace, will require a vast amount of labor combined with great expense .0 clear away the obstructions, and restore our harbor to the status quo ante bellum. THE purchase of the Gallapapos Islands is said to be a private speculation, and not a very profitable one either, The story of the pur hase by'our Government, for three millions -f dollars, is doubtless coined to give conse uence to the Islands, and help the purchasers gut of their bargain. The country will be etiered to learn that the Government is not goig into the guano busIness. S8ER10Us ACCIDENT.-On Now Year's Day, while the Masons were at work on the new uilding erecting for the State Bank, a portion f the scaffolding, in the rear of the building, ;ve way,.and five of the workmen were preer >tted from the third story to the ground, which v.s covered with loose brick. Fortunately jqore wvere no lives lost, although we are sorry o reord that one of the workmen, Patrick 4rgan,.had his arm broken, and George Blake ad, his jaw bone broken, and several teeth socked out. The others escaped without seri ~u.injury. They were all doing well yester ARTHUR SIMKS, EDITOR. EDGEFIELD, S. C. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1855. To Me Patrons of the Advertiser. TiRE Subscriber cgs leave to aniorunce to the kind patrons of the Edgefield Adrecrtisur, that lie las dis. posed of one-half of his Oliire, to his son, D. R1orrin DuRzSoE, who has for a considerable length of itie, had charge of the paper, as Forenian. It may not be improper forhim to state that 1). It. DtunisoE is a thor ough, practical printer, having served his time with the Undersigned. The Subscriber has been connected with the Adver. iser since its commencement in 1836, to the present time, and finds it neces-ary, for certain reasons, to call in to his assistance, a younger and more eflicient man. The business of the Ollice has been considerable for a number of years past, and a large umount reinrin-1 un settled on the books. Old a.coints for subscription, advertising, &c., must positivrly be closed. His friends and patrons must see this necessity; and it is earnestly hoped that all indebted, will promptly and cheerfully step forward and make full payment. The Subscriber returns his heart-felt acknowledge ments to his friends who have so generously patronized him ; and promises that ie and his co-adjutor will endeavor to do their duty to the utmost. They will strive, if possible, to give more interest to the Adver tiser, and they hope that it will lug continue to flour ish. He also is happy to say, that arrangements have been made with the present Editor to continue his services, as lie trusts, for years to come. It is not-at all necessary to say anything of him, as he is well known to the majority of the readersof this paper, and has given proof of his fitness for the editorial chair. W. F. DURISOE. Right Again. ir is but just to our establishment to say that for the last few weeks we have been in an unsettled condi tion. Several arrangements have been under consid. eration bearing upon the futiare fate of the " Adver liser." One after another has been entertained, can vassed and rejected. At last, the following adjustment has been'definitively adopted: Mr. W. F. DuRIsoF (sometimes known as the " old boss") and his son, Mr. D. IZOPER DCrirsoE (oirlhiti erto skilful and always gentlemanly Foreman) are now equally interested in the Proprietorship of the " Edge. field Advcrtiser;"' while we, whose name has been observable at the head of this editorial column for some four years, still continue to act in the capacity which is fast becoinirg a sort of second nature % iI .us.. The accession of 31r. D. It. Dur.soE to the propri etorship of this paper is one of the very best things that could have happened for the' advancement of its excellence and popularity. His worth of character ih well known to this community; but his worth, as a printer, is only well known to those who have been connected with him in the business of a prining oflice. In the future conduct of our paper, lie will he the act ing and managing proprietor; and the reader nuy lool upon this fact alone as a sure guarantee that the week I ly visits of the " Adertiser" will grow more and mor acceptable. But we all feet like doing orir prettiest from imp to Editor; and so, n ith the hope that a legior of subscribers may come into our fold during thisgoor year of 1855, we unitedly make a general bow to ever) body. Our Agricultural Department. IT will be seen that we have instituted a regulai Agricultural Department on the outside of our sheet Two gentlemen of decided pcnctration, Mr. Sui Soil COLTER and Mr. BULt. To.WuE SCOOTER, have kind ly proffered to keep our readers properly posted ill tha branch of information. Their card, under its prope head, is referred to as indicative of their intentions That these intentions will be carried out to the grati fication of our numerous agricultural friends, we hav ne t a doubt. Neither Scoor E nor Cou.Trn is mnadl of that kindu of sturfT whrich can be easily twistei this part of our paper the mrerdiurm of givinrg publicit to their views upon such subjects as crome wir hin ih range of their tr'ost hronorable arnd usefurl occupation Let none he backward. Cot-rERt arid Scoo'TER wil give you all a full arid fair shiowing. Arnd should thre: pounce rupon you too severely at any tirri in their aui side editorial, e promise to comec to your rescue o1 thre inside. Stand forward boldly ! ICongressional Favors. WE acknowledge tire receipt of several document from our irmmiediate represeintative, lion. P. S. llnooxi dring tire few weeks of the present session that liav already passed. Tlhese favors are always thanrkfuil: accepted ; and we hope our Mermber will be inrd fll us as often as anything of interest falls in Iris wvay If it is not too muichr trouble, lie wrill oblige us by liar sing this paragraphr around toall our members. Thlis i one of tire sessions we desire to watchr matters withisom< closeness. Post us trp regularly, geurtletneri, andne' pay you back after ourr fashion. Clariosophic Catalogno. Mnu. Lot, DON BUTLER, of College, will accept on thanks for a copy of thre " Clariosophric Catalogue,' just forwarded to us. Ahrough puiblishred in 1853, w< have not seen one of tirem beforea. it seems to be.: nealy prepared pamphlet in thre main. We observ some inaccuracies, as for instance : Whlile " W. W BocE" is givetn his title of M. C., P. 8 Unooxs i niot, althrouigh threy were both first elected at thre same time. Glenn Springs. WE ask attention to the advertisements of Rev. TI S. AntTatR, of WAGNERt & McCoLIr.oUGHr, andr iris of AntTaln, MceCoLtocon antI WAGNER, hravin;~ reference to tire removal of tire Female School fron Glenn Springs, irs being olfered for sale, anid a chiang. also in thre " St John's" 'chrool at Spartanburrg. The "Anderson Gazette & Advocate." Tins is a newv arid an admirabile slietirade orit u tire two which heretofore existed at Anderson C. IH It is owned by S. G. EAnRLE & Co., edited by Mr EA LE, and gives early promrise of a most useful career All conntected with it have our wvarmrest, wisires foi tre hronor and success of the new paper. English Papers. WE are indlebted to tire kindi attention of severa. friends for a fewv late files of English newspapers One of them, thre " Leice.,tershrire Mercury," is rabid, ly AntiMinisterial. Another, tire " London Morning Post," is egnally A berdeen-ishn in irs propensities. Thue former contains along speech of Kossuthi, math on the anniversary of the Polish insurrection. Tire lion garian orator concludes with this izrigrrage in regard to tie Eastern war: 'I Come what may--in tis war, England stands more in need of Poland and Hiungary than Poland aud Hutngary stand in need of England. With us, victory; without us,defeat, or a disreputable, insufficient armistice." Newberry Bank. WRLL some one be kindl enioughr to inform us as to the cause of certain apprehensions whrichr have been expressed in this District, and, we believe, acted upon in the city of Augusta, in regardl to thre condition of this moneyed corporationi Until two weeks since, it was generally thought, from the chraracter of its stock holders andl the well known ability of its financial head, that thre Newberg~y Bank would at leasrtitand its hand, through thick antI thin, with any or all of our more youthful banks. But, to our surprise, a clamor has been raised against it, first of ai. U'ntil somethirn more condemnatory, than is at piresent known, shall appear, we must insist that this clamor is nts unjust as it is unfounoed. And we trust our editorial brethren of Newberry will at once make its absurdity apparent. We should take pleasure in giving circulation to any d efence of this Inrstitution threy may think proper to P. S.-Since the above was in the printer's drawer, ve have breen shown a full statement, direct from the hands of Mr. Bova (President of the Newberry Bank,) to tie eff'ect that iris Bank hits nnt been in better con dition since its establishment titan at present. His exhibit, which now lies before us, makes aclearshow ing. His language, in reference to the supposed im plication of the Bank in Chrarleston failures, is em. phatic. "By the failires in Charleston," says he, ""we expect to lose but little if anry tiring ; and did we otre extent of our holdings, it would riot affect our Edgefield & Cheatham Plank Road. Fott the first time since its completion, we travelled last week over this road; and we take the earliest op portunity to say a word or two in regard to it. That it is one of the very best built plank roads in the whole country, cannot be denied. This opinion has been given by more than one person of experience in scuh matters. For ourself, being a stockholder and of course very observantof its meritsor demerits through out its entire length, we were more than satisfied in passing and repassing on it the other day. It has the appearance in every respect of being well located, well finished and durable. To our fellow-citizens on thatside of the district, it is a work of great usefulness; and as the common expression goes, they stand migh tily in their own light when they fail to foster and sup. port it. with all their patronage on every occasion that presents itself. Thus fostered, thus supported, the company will do at least a safe business, the road be kept in fine repair nnd its many advantages come to be more and mOTre appreciated by those who shall fiul ly test then. Unpatronised, unsupported, the compa tiv iay become disheartened, the work be eventually th1rown aside and these advantages lost forever to the Western side of Edgefield. We call upon all citizens in that part of our Distit to cast in their mite towards the support of this road, every time (without exception) they come this way. The dirt road may look good enough a portion of every season. This winter being ar. unusually dry one, it is manifestly in fine order. Nevertheless we entreat you, ntow as at aU times, take the plank road. Remember how nearly impassible your dirt road almost always beccmes in wet weather. Call to mind how valuable you will then hold this plank road to be. Reflect upon the wear and tear it saves you even when the other road is in its best plight. Ponder upon the general, diversified, constantly recur. ring, steadily continued facilities of a well-kept Plank road ; and so act that the present company may pros. per and your own best interests be essentially promo. ted. The " Dark Corner," despite its shady name, has been long considered one of the most enlightened portions of Edgefield. Ilide not your light under a bushel now. Stand square up to this work ofpublic im provement. and shov yourselves to be the enlightened people you have always been esteemed. Or else, let it rot by your parsimony, and be the Dark Corner in deed. A Good Sign. Although it would seem, from the universal com plaint of the country, that there was scarcely ever a tighter season as to money matters than the present, yet we declare our opinion (as we have done before) that al I of us are worse scared than hurt. This opinion we b'ase upon several facts, one of which happens to come within our own immediate knowledge. There is now due, in the Conmissioner's office for Edgefield District, considerably over one hundred thousand dol lars, and with the exception of some half dozen cases, no instruc:ions have been given to the olicerby parties at interest to do more than urge immediate payment. Does no: this show that, so far as Edgefield is con cerned, men are disposed to weather out the present pressure in a spirit of generous forbearance 1 We hail it as a noble indication of the good feeling rnd wisdom of our community-of good feeling, because it is kind and Christian-like to be lenient under such circum stances-of wisdom, because the aggregate interests of our District n% ill.be best subserved by such a course. Cotton may rise in it short time-the crops of our farmers will then pour into market-money will be made plenty, and all be well. So mote it be.' I ules to be Observed on Entering a Printing Office. Foa the benefit of a few persons who, unknowingly disturb the Printer, we publish the annexed rules te lie observed on entering by all visiting a Printing Office. Enter softly. Sit down quietly. Don't touch the poker. Say nothing interesting. Engage in no controversy. Don't smoke. Keep six feet from the table. Hands off his papers. Eyes off his manuscript. If lie is a discreet man, he will put what papers he ttemt over to your tieart's cotitent. If he is abrupt, or looks savage, take it for grantec le is stalled-and vanish immediately. Benefits of Advertising. No man is more competent to give an opi:uion on thi benefits of advertising thtan P. T. BARnnSt. In hit Sautobiography, lhe gives rules for success in business and among them, as of primary importance, lie placet tLdvertising-not mere occasional advertising, but ad. svertising upon a liberal and systematic scale. He says "Adivertise your tiusiness. Do not hide your ligh Sunider a bushel. Whatever your occupation or callinl ny be, if it needs supplort from the public, advertist it thiorouighly and etieiently. I freely confess rha fwhat stuccess I have had in my life may fairly be at tributed more to the public press tihan to nearly al other causes comhined. There may possibly be occu pations that do niot require adivertising, but I cannoi well conceive what they are. Men in business wil somteties tell you that they have tried advertising that it did not pay. This is only when advertis~ duone sparingly anti grtigingly. Hormpathic do adivertising will no~t pay perhaps-it is like half a tion of physic making the patient sick, but effecting noithting. Administer liberaily and the cure will he sure and permanent. Some say 'they cannot afford to ativertise ;' they mnistake-t hey cannot afford riot a advertise. In this counitry, where everybody readt the newspapers, the man must have a thick skull wh< dues not see that these are the cheapest and best medi umas through wvhich lie can speak to the pttblic, where lie is to findl customers. Put on the apparance of bu. Isiness antd generally the reality will follow. The far. mer pilanits his seed, and while lie is sleeping, his core anti potatoes aire growing. So with advertising. While you are sleeping, or eating, or coniversing with one set tf customers, your advertisement is being read by hundreds andi thousands of persons who never saw you or heard of your tbusiness, and never would, had it tnt been for your advertisenient appearing so the newspapers." IIWnvv FALREs.-Thue htotisue of Wadsworth & Sheldon, banikers, of New York, hars suspend. etd. The.y were the agents of the State of Illii. tiois, and consequently no payment was made on Tttesdayv of interest on the bonds of thatt State. A telegratphtie despattcht says: Mlesrs. War~dswtorthi & Shelon's liabilities amiotunt to $2,000,000, but they show resources largely above their liabilities, and there is reason to hope that thteir suspension will be merely ttemporary. Arraingements are in progress which will protb'y result in making provisioti for the paymeiint of the interest oti the Illitnois bonds in a few dayts. The suspension hats been caused by at failure to receIve expected retnittances. 'Te telegraph also announces lthe failure of Messrs. Belchier & Co., stigar refiners, of St. Louis. Their liatbilitics are said to be $2,000,. 000, itnvolvitng at prominent stock broker of New York to the extent of $225,000, and a banking hotuse of the samte city to the extent of $300,. 000. Sundry Bostn houses also suffer to the aimount of $1,000,000. The failtire of the bankitng house of Gen. Laritmer, of Pittsburg, Pat., is reported. rTE MMALS.-A gleam of sunshine, we are hiappy to sta-te, has just appeared, which, in all probability, wi'l dispel the fog in which the mail facilities of this portiotn of our State lias for the last few datys been enveloped. An offer made by the Post Oflice Department to pay 8237,50 per mile for a double daily tail service between Kingsville aind Augutsta atnd Charleston and Kitttsville, and $100 per tmile for a single daily servifce between Kintrsville and Columbia, has been, we learn, accepsted by the South Carolina Railroad Company, provided the schedules re qtiired are not incomnpatible with the business of the road. The otnly difficulty now in the way of a speedy termination of the present unfortu nate statte of affairs is, therefore, as to what schedules shall be adopted; and wve sincerely trust that, as thero aippears to be a conciliatory disposition evinced on both sides-the Post-. master Geiteral only, as we learn, requirtng such schedules as shall preserve proper connections no time will be lost in restorinig to our citizens those mail fatcilities of which they should never have been deprived.-Charleston Courier. RAILnOAD DAMAG ES.-A man named Croeker, who was forced out of a car of the New Lon don Railroad Company, because he refused to pay an aditonal fare of five cents demanded bythte conductor, whereby his knee pran was broken, and othier injuries received, has been awarded $8,200 damnages by the Court before hrm the Chronicle & Sentinel. GEORGIA GOLD MINE. WAsHIGTON, Dec. bOth, 1854. MR. EDITOR:-One of the richest gold veins in the South was discovered a few days ago by a Mr. Jas. Brown, in Hurt county, on his own land. It is in micaceous slate, about five feet wide, and the ore I saW washed out.yielded $10 per bushel, and some parts of the vein give from $20 to 850. The developments as yet are very superficial, and only at two points; but If it prove extensive of like quality, it -will eclipse the celebrated Dorn Mine in Soluth Carolina, which has produced in the last two years over $400,000. It appears to be a specal God-send, for no worthier man and wife live any where, and they have now living twelce sons and eight daughters, one having died, making her the moth er of twenty one children, which she has raised to be respectable and an honor to the country! Such a mother certainly deserves Epension from Government, and under Roman or Spartan rule would receive it. A AFFRA.-A very serious affray occurred at the house of Thomas Murphy,'ih the corner of Unity Alley and State-street, on New Year's day. A man named McLoughlin;- and another, became engaged in a controversy, -when -Murphy interfered to prevent disturbance: -He was 1n. successful, and starting for the gard, was fol lowed by McLoughlin and stabbetin the abdo men with a large nife. McLougHlin is charged with the act, and has been lodged iti jail to await the result. Murphy is in an exceedingly crit.ical condition. In the absence of tife police, Chas. M. Farrally, whom, under the soubriquet of Handsome Charley, we have oeenionally men tion, happened to be passing, and- taking upon himself the responsibility of the arrest, bore the prisoner off to jail.-Charleston Standard. THE New-York papers record the suicide of John Murphy, an Englishman, recently arrived in this country, who had becomT deranged by the want of employment, and the consequent sufferinr- of his family. His family had been without ood for two days, when the wife yield ed to I - necessities, and went to the Commiute of Rcloa for the Poor, to obtain some assis tance. In her absence, the husband cut his throat, and during the inquest upon the father, the mother received news of the death of her child from want of food. The case has excited the sympathies of the citizens, -and doubtless the remainder of the family will be taken care of." A correspondent of the National Intelligencer refutes an article which appeart-d.in a New-York paper a few d.ys ago, on " Agrculture, North and South," in which the writer offers statistics to prove, that the products of the North are worth more than those of the South. The cor respondent says that the annual produet of Cot ton in the South is set down'St the rate of $2,000,000, when the actual amount is, $15, 000,000. And thus it is with many other articles. THE DRy GooDs TRADE.-The United States Economist is speculating upon the effect the suspension of business in the dry goods trade is to have upon the trade of the coming spring. Many houses in New York have covered up their goods, and do not expect any further trade until after the holidays, while a few-are doing a tri fling business in answering Lhe'tocat demand, supplying orders from a distauce,or waiting up on a few buyers from Canada. A serious accident occurred. at Philadelphia on Saturday. While about a dozen men were engaged in hauling lumber in the Navy Yard, from the wharf to the ship house, the derrick, which was used on the occasion, fell, instantly killing one man and so severely injuring twg others that they died the next normng: Three others were badly but not mortelly hurt. Short ly after the accident happened,;the Navy Yard became densely cowded by the wives, children and friends of the workmen engaged there, whose distress caused the greatest excitement. THE M'ETHOoIST oF GEOHG --The Southern Rscarder gleans oma _he m~eue of the lte lowing interestiuj items:. The number 4white members of the Metho dist Church within the b'ounds of the Georgia Conference, i 50,213-colored, 21,867. It ine rant preachers,, iy0- locnl, 538. Thirty-one preachers were ordained deacons, and twenty-five were ordained illders. Twenty-three preachera were admitted into the Conference en trial; three re-admitted. fixteen thousand eight hundred and niney-eight dollars were collected the last year for Missionary purposes, and eighteen hun. 'dred dollars in aid of the Sabbth school cause. Goon DIvIDESD.-The Graniteville Company of thmis State have declared a semi-annual divi dend of five per cent., payable on and after the 10th inst., by application, by letter or otherwise, to the TIreasurer at Graniteville. THE ANNExATION OF THE~SAIDW3CR IsLAlrDS. The Washington correspondent of the New ork Journal of Commerce says: I learn from very good authority, that the fundamental article of the Hawaitian annexation treaty providt-s for the immediate admission of the islands into this Uiion, as an independent and sovereign State. They are to comae into the Union as Texas did, and are to be repre sented, of course, in the next Cengrese, by two Senators. NAVAL. Smrox ix GzoRGI.-The harbor of Brunswick, Ga., the port at which a naval sta tion is proposed, baa twenty-four feet water on the bar at high tide; and recently the ship Agnes, of Boston, drawing twenty-one feet of water, and loaded with 1,300 tons of railroad iron, went over the bar at ebb tide, and entered the harbor without a pilot. It will be seen that there is water enough on the bar for the lar gest class vessol of war. DrvrozxDs.-The Bank of Hamburg has de lared a dividend of five per cent, for thme last aix months. The Exchange B3ank of Columbia has declared a dividend of seventy-five cents on the share, upon the capital stock of the Banik for the past six months. THE Richmond Post says: Agents for the hiring out of negroes are put ting the prices up for the ensuing year, much to thme discomfiture of every one who hias use for negro labor. " Men who were hairing last year for $100 are held this year at $120 and $150; and negroes who brought only $75 and $80 last year, are held at $100 and $120. In the hiring of females the prices- have not jump ed so high, and range at nearly the same figure as last year." THE whole number of Re'volutionary pension - ers on the roll on the 30th of June, 1854, was one thotusand and sixty-nine, and the amount of pensions paid last year was less than seventy-five thousanmd dollars. The heres of the Revolution will soon have passed away. A letter from Hamburg to the Boston Post, says: " It is said here on very good authority that the Russian Baltic fleet will come out of Cron stadt and take a cruise, sfter the English fleet have retired from the north in consequence of the approach of cold weather. It is said to have a double reason for so doing, as it expects to pick up some English merchantmen who are rather late in getting on their homeward voyage, as well as to effect a junction with the portion. of the fleet at Sweabourg." SUDA FACTOR.-At a meeting of the stock holders yesterday the above establishment was sold to James G. Gibbes & Co. It will soon be put in order and started again, and will doubtless be a profitable investment.--South Carolinian. CoanmMIssoEas TO Paars.-The Hon.

Prusia has declined to join the triple alliance, but has sent Baron. Antendon, as a special envoy, to London,, to establish the conditions of a special treaty with England anid France. Affairs at Sebastopol were unchanged. The weather'was very bad and much sickness prevailed among the troops. The Russians make incessant sorties, chiefly against the French. Reinforcementa to both armies had arrived, but the impassable con dition of the roads prevented operations. The President's message excited no attention in Europe. The Liverpool Cotton Circular of Messrs. Brown & Shipley, of the 22d ult., confirms the quotation, of Orleans and Uplands given by Messrs. Milligan, Lempriere, Evans & Co., and says that Fair Mo bile was quoted at 51d., Middling Mobile at 41. The Inferior qualities commanded from 3Jd a 41d. per lb. The sales on the 22d alt. were 7000 bales, including 1000 to exporters. The market closed quiet but steadier. The stock, exclusive of that on shipboard, comprised 576,000 bales, of which 322,. 000 n ere American. Mr. Russell, the Crimean correspondent of the London Times, under date of the 23d of November, says that the siege was practically suspended. The batteries were used up and the army exhausted, but still able to defend their positon and chastise theit assailants. 'On the night of the 22d of November a desperate affair occurred between the French Chasseus and the Russian Riflemen, which lasted seven hours. The French penetrated behind the outer entrench ments, but, no arrangements having been made for a general assault, they were withdrawn. Preparation for renewing the bombardment wert progressig. On the 27th of November all was quiet. On the 28th and 29th of Novembei desperate sorties took place which resulted in great los or both sides. Two thousand Russians, on one occa. sion, attcked the French lint were finally repulsed On the night of the 30th of November a heavy fire was kept up on the French. On the lpt of December, the heavy rains having prevented the arrival of supplies, the English forcei were temporarily placed on short allowance. Th deaths fromn cholera and fevur averaged sixty pei day. On the 5th alt. another sortie took place agains the French, in which the Russians were repuliet with a heavy lose. The Paris Moniteur says that on the 7th sit. thi siege batterias were re-established, atmd that ii three days the firing would be resumed, the allie having been sufficiently entrenched with provision to remain throughout the winter. Lord Forth has returned to Enigland from th Crimea. It is said his return has created great in ignation. The London correspondent of the Not York Tribune writes: lie is a very young officer, a minor, and as i seems not much of a hero. In the battle of Alm he threw himself on the ground, and screamed-" am frightened, I can't fight." Lord Raglan set him word that in the next battle he was expected I distinguish himself by hs gallantry. that his coward ice might be forgotten.

WRIGnT, of that place, to Miss MARY Bi Ei, for merly of this village. - OBITMUARY. DIED, on Wednesday' Jan'y, 1855, at the resi dence of hir step-father, Mr. lumphrey Boulware, in the village of Edgefield, Jonx L. 11CnARDoN, son of the late Mr. Jefferson Richardson, in the 25th year of his age. The writer of this notice was mneh with the de Ceased during the two weeks immediately preceding his death, and feels himself authorized to comfort his bereaved relatives with the assurance that, from his deep contrition, earnest prayers for mercy, and all-absorbing attention to his spiritual and eternal interest, coupled with the freeness and fulness of God's mercy through Christ, they are privileged to hope that he sleeps in Jesus, and that therefore " when Christ, our life, shall appear, then shall he also appear with him in glory." E. E. B. DIED, in Aiken, of consumption, on the 26th Nov. 1854,' Dr. Joszrn A. A nDIsON, of this District. le was a son of the late Allen B. Addison, well known an one of the earliest and most worthy residents of Edgefield village. The noble social qualities of the deceased, his candor, generosity, warmth of tent perament and Aindness of heart had attached to him a large circle of relatives and friends. By his untimely fall, a young and affectionate wife has been made to mourn, and an interesting little boy-ias been left fatherle.ss. But the support of the one is the right arm of nli who has promised to be a father to the fatherless, and the consolation of the other is to be found in the blessed Word which has vouch safed to the just a day of resurrection and reunion. That our friend had his frailties (who has noot?) the writer seeks not to deny. But that lie had his vir. tues too, all who know him will cordially testify. Yet it is not for man to ca!euhate the hopes of an immortal spirit beyond the grave. "No longer seek his merits to disclose, Or draw his frailties from their dread abode There they alike in trembling hope repose. The bosom of his Father and his Godt !'" A. S. DIED, in Edgefield District, on the 20th of De. cember last, Mr. Jos.eru D. A LL.S, son of the late Mal. .1. C. Allen. The deceased was in early youth, having not yet attained his 2.th year. The disense was Typhoid fever, which had been so flial iq;c fanily of hi father during the past year. Though ao) young, the subject of this notice had established for hin self a character remarkable for energy, steadiness, and other high qualities, which so well adorn the citizen. le was anexcellent son, brother and friend ; and deeply is he lamented not only by his relatives, but by the community in which lie lived.
