THE LATE JUDGE DAVID JOHNSON. Amongst, the eminent men whom South Caro lina has cherished and mourned over, hardly one ha. descended to the grave, who through the whole course of his life has been so uniformly honored and beloved as David Johnson. In -every public station, and hA has filled many, up to the very highest-in every private relation, in the whole tenor ot' his life, and in every mode of being he approved himself worthy of, and possessed the contidence, respect and love of his fellow-citizens. Destitite of the advantages of a liberal education-yet he had no sooner come to the bar than he established a reputatio: for good sense, industry, faithfulness and conscientious ness that obtained public patronage, and promo ted him at once to the primary distinction of his urofession-that of Solicitor of the Circuit. From that beginning his advancement in official dignity was steady and uninterrupted, through the honorable graduations of his profession Circuit Judge, Chancellor, Judge of the Court of Appeals of Three, until at length a long lire of public service was crowned by his exaltation to the (Chief 1agistraev of the State, not bur thened for any solicitation, or indeed sought for at all, or asked-but tendered to him as a token of the approbation of the State, and as a con spicuous and recorded announcement of " Well done thou good and faithful servant." How well, how wisely, how conscientiously he administer ed the hiih functions of his office, we of the present tine know, but how consistently with the general tenor of his character, and how con formably with his long antecedents, none but the aged can appreciate. His intellectual nature wAs massive, solid and weighty. Its action al ways indicated the character of his moral organi. zation. He was riglt-minded, truthful, honest, fearless and dutiful. lie saw the truth, and lov ing it he announced it. Its detection seemed to be as much a moral perception as the result of ratincinaion-and therefore, lie approached it with great force. His moral nature was com pounded of all the graver virtues-gravity, pa tience, courtesy, courage and candor-all of which were presided over, directed and energized by an habitual and earnest love of truth. Both his mind, his heart and his person seemed to be of a Cyclopean patience. He was grave, huge, solid. He did not seem to be a work of mod ern times. Through the tempest of our politi cal excitements he held on his steady course, steadily as some huge ship through the dashing waves-:mnd such was the undisputed clearness of his ione.<ty, and unwaveringness of his be nevolent temper, that he passcd through that tempestuous scene, unimpeaclhed by even the violence of party excitement, and carrying with him throughmout the personal esteem and confi dence of those who led the opposing party. His; long honored. honorable and unsulled life, we are happy to be a ble toaflirm upon certain know. ledgte, was closed amidst the consolarions of religion, with a firm amnd avowed reliance upon thme grace and merits of his Redeemer.-Caroli na Times. DEATH OF HON. B. K. HENNEGAN. We have retorded above the death of a citi zen, who elosed a long career of duty in thme judicial department of our commonwealthm, by wearing~ thme official robes and Executive insig uia of 'time State. By a sad coinmcdence we are also called upon now to notice the decease of another citizen, arid in a distant portion of time State, who ha~d also been prominenm tt official positions. and had wielded the sword of State. We learni from time comamumnication of a friend, thmat Dr. Benjamin K. Hennegan expired at his re~idence. imm Marion District, otn tihe night of WVednesday, thme 10th inst., after an illness of! several months. Dr. Hennegan hmad represented int the Semte of thme State, at diffearent periods, both thme Dis tricts of Marlborough and Mariomn, with accep tance anmd approval. In 1840 he was elected Lieutenmant-Governor -the gubernatorial honor beimig conferred on thme late Governor Noble. On the lanmented re moval of Governor Noble, by the inexorable sunmmors, a few motnths after his wvell deserved promotion, the executive duties devolved on Gov'. Hennegan--thte first instance, we believe, of stich an occurrence since the death of Gov. Rutledge, at the datwn of this century. After closing this official term, Gov. Hemtnegan was entrusted with thme office of Secretary of State, and on retiring from this, devoted himself to the pursuits and occupation of the planter and private citizen, without ceasinmg however, to take an active itetrest in all events and occur rences affecting time body politic. Ex-Govermnor Hennega6' was a physician, and in the earlier period ol' his life devoted himself to 'he active duties and toils of his profession withm sucht success, as to conmmd a large share of patronage, and conciliate general approval. In all the relations of life, hie was simple heart ed, unostentatiouls anmd faithful, cultivating time good will of all whmo camme within his circ'e of intercourse, lHe leaves a widow and a large family of children to maournm his departure " To thmat mysterious realm, whmere each shall take, his chamber in silent hmalls of death." Charleston Courier. Ttr Matt ARRIANGEMENT ADJUsTED.-A telegraphmic dispatch received at this office last evemning from a reliable source in Charleston,I advises us thmat the Poss master General and the President of the Charleston Rail Road have completed an arrangement for the transportation of the mails over time Road, to take effect on Monday next. There will be a double service performed on thme road from Kingsville to Chtarleston and Au gusta, but from Kingsville to Columbia, only one service is allowed, hence the Northern mail which has, up to the present moment, reached Columbia at 10b A. M.,-will be de'ained until the arrival of the Charleston traitn at the junctioni, whmich train will convey all mail ma.ter destined for the upper part of this State, amid deliver it in Columbia at about 2b o'clock, P. M. Thus, the faciities we have enjoyed, are cut off, and a vexa tious delav of at least six hours, must be sub mitted to by this commumnity. As the atrrangement now exists the entire line of Road from Kingsville to Charleston and to Augusta is rated as first class, and f.om Kings ville to Columbia amid Camden as second. We regret the loss and inconvenience to whmicht we 'will be subjected, but at the same time are pleased that our friemnds at other poimts have been benefitted and that Mr. Campbell has been tamught as was Mohamed, that inasmuch as the mountain would not go to him, it became hi~s duty to go to the mountain.-Carollna Times, 10th inst. SoxEa Tuastr.-We were presented a few days amgo, by some unknown friend, with a Tur mip weigning i3j lbs., which exceeds in size and weight, any thing we ever heard of. At. the same time we received a Potatoe weighing 10 1-4. Our friend does not wish his name to go before the public, and that is the reason it is' unknown to us. We are satisfied that it cant be beat, teither in South Carolina or Georgia.--Barn well Sentinel. ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR. EDGEFIELD, S. C. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1855. Acknowledgment. Hon. A. P. BUTLER has our best thanks for a Con gressional volume of much interest. Anthropology. DR. J. HAVNEs, a delineator of talents and charac ter, will give a free lecture before the citizens of Edge field on this (Wednesday) evening. We have before us testimonials, of Dr. H's abilities and skill, from a number of newspapers, among them the " Louisvill Journal" and "Brownlow's WAi"" The lecture will probably be given in the Court House room. I that place be not obtainable, the public will easil1 find out whatever room may be secured. We at prepared to hear something at once entertaining ant amusing. For further particulars, attend the lecture. Coming out of the Kinks. WE are pleased to announce that all apprehension! of our having no Postmaster at this place have beer entirely put aside by the recent induction of Mr. A RAXSEr into that office. As well as we can thus fal judge, he promises to prove a very active, attentive ani prompt functionary. All very good. Again, the world must bear to be informed of thi fact, that we have at last a daily stage line runniinj directly through our town. This line connects Au gusta and Ninety-Six village on the Greenville ant Columbia railroad. We are glad to see it doing well Now that passengers, desiring to cross the countr] here, can calculate with certainty every day upon conveyance, many will doubtless arrange to take thi route. As we said on a former occasion, it is certain ly a considerable saving of time and expense over th railroad route (via Columbia) between the above de signated points. Now, if even this little circumstance imparts som new animation to our place, what-wirAT-WHA'I will a railroad not eflect? A Good Example. WE observed in the last Newberry Sentinel a lonr and full Report of the Treasurer of the Town Council submitted to the public by the Intendant and Warden of Newberry village. If such a thing has ever beer done at Edgefield, we are not aware of it. But it doe: strike us as being entirely proper, and we commend the example to our authorities. Of the honesty oi those who have the collection and disborsement ol our village funds, we have not a doubt. Still, as a means of giving satisfaction to every citizen, as a mat ter ofjustice to all, as ailuty strictly binding upon the communty's financial officer, we hold that a full re port of his receipts and expenditures should be annual ly made and published by him. Will not our present Council be pleased to look into the propriety of the suggestion, and, if it accord with their notions of right, so arrange that for the passing fiscal year such an accounting shall be prepared. Pierce's Preparatory School. We call attention to the advertisement of Mr. W. P. PIERCE, who proposes to establish a first class pre. paratory school at Aiken. From a glance at his plan as developed in a private letter to which we have had access, we should say that Mr. P's school is bound to achieve it's purpose. Our Exchanges. TIE YoRKvILLE ENQUIREa: By SAn'L. W. MEL TON and Jon, L. MILLER. This is a new paper, out and ouL Mr. MELTON has been known to the State for some time through his hitherto connection with the "Chester Standard." He has manifested unmistakea bly his admirable editorial qualifications. Mr. MILLEII is a new hand at the windlass; but, from personal ac quaintance, we undertake to ensure his success with. out recompense. We are really pleased to see these gentlemen pledging their time and talents to the cause of the Press. The first number of the " Enquirer" is an able one. Thtat ii may climb through all thte dhe gres of comparieon, to thte pionncle oh excellence, is all thte hartm we wish our friends wvho have its suste nance at hteart. TtHE CHtARLEs-roN MERCURY: By hEART and TA BER. This old favorite seems to have beetn compellei toenlarge its limits. What does this shtow, if not thtat its importance and popularity are alike upon the in~ crease ? The position of the Mercury, its long-stand ing list of subscribers and its warmly-chterished ante cedents make up a field worth laboring in ;and we take pleasure in commending its present conductors ai men of high character and writers of much force. THE SOUTH CA ROtINIAN: By GieBEs & JottNsoN, Established again, with new type and new every thting except its old owners, its old editor, andl, for aught w, know, its old typos. Trhese, we hope, may stand a their post marty a bright day yet, for all that's come and gone. It is really pleasant to see our frienid in hi wonted proportions again. And you say it has only been a month since we missed you from your accus omed place ? Verily it seems to us the longest month that has ever happened to outr editorial exisicnce ; and all because we htad got in the habit of referring to sthe Carolinian as a sheet that was sure to give us every item of news worth looking after. Welcome back, old laborer, to thy former usefulness ! TilE CtHEsTERt STANDARD: By MtcxtE&MuELToN. This paper has changed hands. 3Mr. J. B. MtCKLE is now sole proprietor and principal ed itor. Mr. C. D. ELTON acts as assistant editor. Mr. MIELToN has made the Chtester Standard a most excellent Weekly, and we doubt not that the determination of3Ir. N ccexts, to maintain its prominence as sutch, will be crowned with entire success. FtHE SoUrtr CAROLINA TEMPERAN'CE AovoCATE : BySrEoN CORLEY. MIessrs. CAUGHtMAN & BaEARE, after a brief but efficient career, have retired from thec editorial conduct of this sheet ; and 3Mr. CoR LEY now' upplies it unaided and alone. Th'le number before ut evinces att earnestness and energy on his part which cannot fail of commanding the attention and support of all good tetotallers. A New England Beauty. WE have had, once or twice, something to say it: regard to the physical development of ottr girls in' Edgefield. But we are now fairly hutshed up by an advertisement in the Charletton Mercury. One Col. PATON is exhibiting in the city a girl from Down East, who is only thirteen years old and already weighs 25: pounds. This is not all, pretty dears! In spite of such an accumulation of flesh and bone., shte is de. cared to be perfectly formed and " as handsome asa picture." 3Miss SARAh JANE ROOT (that's hcr name: can travel. A Queer Thought. SOxE fellow has said that to see a man pull out his watch in church brings forcibly to his mind the follow ing passage in scripture: " When will the new moori be gorne, that we may sell corn ; and the Sabbath, tha we may set forth wheat ?" Wonders will never cease. SAM HoUsTON, the redoubtable hero of San Jacin o, the first President of the Lone-star Republic artd at this time the Senatorial Colossus of Texas, has joined the Baptist clhurch. Eow to get a New Toerk Correspondent Cheap. SUFFER him to fill a large portion of his letter wit] criticisms on books. Of course there can be no bettei advertisement of his wares. You then get your New York letter (such as it is) for nothitng, andi an occasion al volume thrown in. $2' A HOLY SENTixENT.-We quote four lines which embody the purest, truest thought we have seen ini print for at leass a twelvemonth : " To make a happy fireside clime For children and for wife, Is the true pathos and sublime, And green and gold of life." g 240 WITut A VENGLANCE.-The man whts lost his wife after six months of married lifc, htas falleri upon the expedient of a fast-trotting horse, with whieh to outrun his melancholy in drivin g to town and back morning and evening. Willis's ZLast, TttE roost expressive obsiervation we have seen from N. P. WIrLL.s lately is this: " The old age of li-era ry men seem. to be a Lethe-an unavoidable gulf of oblivion which they must needs cross. So their immor Hon. L. MY. Eeitt. WE observe that this gentleman has taken ground boldly against the new order of Know Nothings. His speech upon the subject we have not yet chanced to see. It was replied to by Mr. SOLLERS (Know Noth ing) of Maryland. In the course of his remarks, the latter gentleman took occasion to allude invidiously to the nullification and secession parties of South Caroli na; whereupon Mr. KErir'r made the following spirited, impromptu rejoinder: Mr. Keitt-The gentleman from Maryland (Mr. Sol lers) has introduced here what he is pleased to call the northern extreme and the southern extieme in conjunc tion. This, i*r, is a matter of taste, and, when not connected with anything personal and offensive, may be allowed to pass. He spo -e of nullification and se cession, and said the Know 5othings.were opposed to them as violently as toAbiolitionisn. Sir, Itcept the admission. As my friend from Virginia (ir. Letcher) has yielded to me the floor for a moment, I shall make a few remarks. Sir, the principle of nullification has been illustrated by the noblest intellects of my State. It has been il lustrated and expoundedb ly Calhoun, Hayne, McDuffie, and Pres-on, and that host of great minds which pour. ed splendor upon the annals of Carolina in 1832. Sir, it was a party of brave men and free men. In times of trouble and danger, South Carolina had matle heavy sacrifices of blood and treasure for the Union; but when insufferable wrong was inflicted upon her, she took her safety into her own hands, and gathered her children around tier to redress her wrongs, and main tain her rights and sovereignty. Yes, sir, she gathered together sons to defend her rights, and strike this Gov ernment if it dared to invade her. This, sir, she did openly, in the eye of the sun. She did not gather them in midnight hour, and in subterranean caves, to I conceal tier purpose. No Catiline was there, with brand and dagger, festering in midnight conspiracy, and in senate hall next day, whien disclosures were made, professing to be a "Know Nothing." Sir, she rallied tier sons tinder her own sovereign flag, and whoever was the foe of that flig was their foe. In this struggle, sir, South Carolina yielded not her rights and sovereignty. Thus much for nullification. Now, sir, for secession. I was a member of that party. In 1850, I advorated the policy of South Car olina interposing tier sovereignty as a shield between spirit of resistance to Federal aggressions was univer sat throughout the State, but we differed as to the " mode and measure" of redress. Sir, I advocated the policy of secession, and the principle lying at its founda tion-the principle of State sovereignty-I will defend t: the last. The policy of the secession party was, in virtue of State sovereignty, to retire from the Federal compact, and if you dared to assail us, to meet you upon the open field, to meet you with bow and brand, and fight out the quarret. Sir, I owe allegiance to my State and only through tier to t he Federal Government. Whenever she recalls that allegiance, I have no fur ther connection with the Federal Governnient, and I scorn your clamors, and trample upon your hosannas to the Union. Sir, I regret that the gentleman from Maryland lis introduced the nullification and secession party in ju.rtaposition with the Ablitton party; but, as he has unequivocally disclaimed anything personal or offen mive, I shall make no personal reply to him. I only desire to say to the House, that I was a member of the secesstion party of South Carolina, and whoever says autlit against the honor or character of that party, I will answer with a monosyllable. MVediation. Tu people of the United States are manifesting at reveral points, a desire that the General Goveunment should offer itself to the belligerents of the East in a nediatorial capacity. There isthis to be said in favor of the move: that a pacification might in some way relieve the moneyed pressure of the day. But there is a great deal more, as we apprehend, to be urged against the proposition. A special and perhaps rather selfish reason, contra, is that it is of importance to ts that England and Erance should sap their streigth as far as may be in this war, in view of their threats in respect to the balance of power on this side the At lantic. But a more general and broadly-based objec tion to any interference on our part is to be found in the true American policy of minding our own business, attending to our own half of the globe and leaving all other nations to do as they please with the other hal f, always provided they respect Brot her Johnathan's rights in every particular. When they fail to do so, he intends to be " counted in," free fight or not. But until then, where is the sense of his dabbling in the matter? CLtINGIAN's moition ought to receive a spee dy quietus. So ne think at present. The Valley Railroad. WF observe a strong appeal, by our neighbor of tha " Valley Pioncer," to the citizens of Augusta, in favor of the projected Savannah Valley Railroad. Ilis views and hones on tha subjert are---o.&..a.. it -L. b~y theu " Adverliscr." To see this enterprise crowned with conmplete success would give us the nmost sincere pleasure. To see Hamburg and Augusta flourishing beneath its beneficent influences, is a consummation greatly to be desired by the people of Edgefield.. Any thing that advances the interest.s of those twin markets, is certainly extending and improving, by just so much our facilities of trade. rTat the building of utis oad is to enrich Augtsta, we hadl supposed all along to be one among the strongest probabilities of the day. Is it not indeed a certainty ? Can there be a doubht of it! And, should that city neglect this opporttnity of secur ing the inestimable advantages that here lie within her grasp, will it not be the very acrue of narrowfisted selfishness ? But we feel assured there can be no danger of such a result. Censtus Items. Ix looking over thte last United States census, we observe that Soot Ih Carolina produces only about 3(0 lbs. of flax per atimn, the most of which is A nderson and Pickens. Not a pontud of hiemp appears to he at State. We would actually have to borrow from Kenttucky, if there was occasion to hanga traitor. Barnwell (and Blarnw~ell alone) lias the credit oif raisinig M1aple-sugar, of which stuff some one of her citizens seems to have reported 200 lbs. to the Untited States officer. Beaufort and Culleton, jointly, render in aboutt 15, 000 gallons of molasses. Some man from Edgefield tnames 25 gallons. Who is hte? The District of Horry (korry~bilc dictu!') only made 15 bales of cotton in 1850. In point of cotton, Ahheville stands first, Edgefield second, Newberry third, Fairfield fourthi, &c. Beaufoirt is ahead in the culture of rice, Georgetown and Colletont following close upon tier heels. A little silk is made in Anderson, avery little--none atty where else. We are said to raise some 1200 hounds of tobacco in Edgefield. Doubted by some. In wvine, Anderson makes theu fullest showing. Btt now theu 31AV-ERics are broke tip, who will take the lead!? Richiland probably, as shte already stands sec ond. Of the 29 Districts ini the State, Edlgefield is said to " slaughter more animals" titan any one of them. Otir people love meat, that's very clear. We are said to cut up over $300,000 worth of it per annum. Edgefield moreover ranks next to Charleston in the value of her manufactured articles. The M~ap of Europe. I-r would seem that this map is to undergo great and immediate changes, should the Western powers suc ceed in their present grand effort to beat back the might of Russia. Poland is to be re-established in all her former length and bureadtht. Moldavia, Wallachtia, and Bessarabma are to become a part of Austria. The Crimea is t-a be attached to Tttrkey. Lombardy is to be given tip by Austria, to take her rank among the othe,- Italian States, and, thtus, Italy is to be made in dependent. " By this remodelling of the map of Eu rope," says the North British Review, "a new era of hope, peace and promise would be inaugurated." But what is to become of poor Hutngamry A clumsy ex cuse is formed by the Reviewer fur leaving her still beneath Austrian dominion. i ustr-ia is to be kept in check by certain contingencies, sucht as the neighbor hood of a new counsellor (Poland) arid an old enemy (Russia) ; and thus she is to be constrained to do jus tice to Hungary. It is to be so arranged, besides, that the Mayga,r influence will be felt and feared by the great cenral power. More than three~fourths.of Aus tria's remodelled dominions will be filled with Maygars and Sclavonians; the tormer furiously hostile; the latter divided in their allegiance. It as really laughable to see a grave Reviewer, in words carefully selected and with the solemnity of an future of Europe. As if the breaking do'wn of Russi an strength were a matter of course ; or as if Austria, even did the Czar utterly and forever succumb, would Isubmit to be manacled in stupid silence. As we see the map to-day, the yellow-painted con fines of Russia are more thtan double mdll the balance of Europe. AndI it is sheer moonshIne to talk of this remodelling of empires in the East, uninflutenced by the dictum of that monster Despotism., gf S. P.-.Witty Mr. -- says that S. P. are two letters that stand for the prevailing epidemic-not An Earl's Wit and Eloquence. IN a recent attack upon her jesty's government by the Earl of' Derby, the noble lord'is reported to have dealt largely in pleasantry and ridicule. Among other things we find the following in application to Sir CHAtr.ES NAPIER and that magnificient Baltic fleet which was to make the Czar tremble upon his throne : " It reminds me," " said the Earl," of what is recorded about the duel between Sir RIcHARD STRACHAN (pronounced Strawn)and Lord CIATHAM: " Lord CHATHAM, with his long swcrd drawn, Stood waiting for Sir RicHARD STRACHAN; Sir RICHARD, longing to be it him, Stood waiting for the Earl of Chatham." So much for DERanv's wit. As a specimen or his eloquence (certainly not of the BURNE or CHATAM order) we append his exhortation to the British soldiers now fighting and dying daily around Sebas topol: To those gallant men who arb now under circum stances of cunsiderable difficulty. and with diminished numbers, gallantly fighting the battles of this country, reinforced as they have been to a cerain degree, cal culating as I do upon their indomitable perseverence and courage under all circumstances of cifficulty and discouragement-to them I would say, "Yet a little more patience, yet a little more perseverence. The end is not yet, but the end is approaching you when you shall reap the reward of your labors. The eyes of your countrymen are upon yoi-the hearts of ye ur countrymen are with you. The sympathies of your countrymen are in support of your unparelleled erer lions. Men, women, and chil rei are exhausting their stores for the purpose of relieving your distresses, and ministering to your comforts, and assauging your suf ferings. Fresh reinforcements'ie at hand. Your courage, your daring, your steady and obstinate re sistance, and your tuflinching perseverance, shall ;not only be ackrowledged, but shaljerve as a moral and an example to the country, whic is proud of having you for soldiers. Go on in the gallant course which you have begun. Have yet a little more patience to struggle against the tnavoidable difficulties which tre opposed to you, and believe that the hearts of your countrymen are with you. Theaare laurels for thoise who have fallen, and when you return- from an exle dition which, with all its barlising difficulties, and all its dangers and its labors, will be and most be suc cessful, bectrase your example will inspire your coun trymen, you will be the men *ho will have upheld and maintained the honor of your'flag-you will have delivered Europe from the powe;r.of Ihe oppressor, and you will deserve the blessings d England and of the world. (Much cheering.) r Wickedr AN inveterate bachelor has sent us the following verses, with a special request that we give them a place. In doing so, we utterly repudiate all manner of unkindness towards that respectable order of fe males known as " Old Maids." We have seen ladies of that ilk who possessed maly admirable traits but then again (to own up the truth) we have known some very tart specimens. Our bachelor friend does not presume, we hope, to say that, he is the author of this "Lament." Thet would not do at all. Ile may ave introduced some few necessary emendations; hut certain are we that, as a whole, the thing is as early as the days of King George 111. Ihappening to kno4 the old English air to which it is adapted, we are pleased to recover the words in full. Come around, Mr. Bachelor, and we'll repay your antiquarian skill by singing you the song in the real nasal style, which .alone can render its meaning properly. But here arsthe verses: -POOR OLD MAIDS." Three-score and ten 6f us, Poor o1ld maids! Three-score and ten of us, Not a soul to give a buss, What will become of us I Poor ol: maid.! Long time we've tarred, L Poor old maids! Long time we've tar-n-ed, Sooi shall we be bur-ri-ed, Oh! that we were mar-ri-ed! Poor okt maids! Dress'd in yellov, pink and blue, . Poor ol: maids!

" A Vermont editor gives this advice to the ladies: " When you have gut a man to sticking point -that is, when he proposes-don't turn away your head, or affect a blush, or refer him to pa; or ask for more time; all those tricks are understood now; but just look him right in the face, give him a harty smack, and tell him to go and order the furniture." gg THE Killingly (Ct.)

Monmaoss.-Late dates from Utah announce that the Mormotns were becoming divided timong thetmselves, and the pro.,pect wais, tha~t they wottld soon split itnto fnzetiotis that would even tuazlly lead to the breakitng up of the fraternity. T1hie Gladdenites arne said to be ini deadly oppo sition to llrighiam Young, and should he und his followers attempt to carry out their thrett of resistance to the new Govertior, the former wilh turn against their old confederales, and asaist in bringing them to terms. This itnteirnal confu sion is precisely whatt was predicied from the beginntitig with regard to these people. So long as they were opposed and harrassed from with out, they had no opportutnity of~ deliberately scruutnizinig the character and intenitions of each other; but, so soon as left entirely to themselves, the case wats altered--they then were afforded at chance of "reading the designs of their leaders," zis onc of the dissenters re tmarked, and, as a matter of course, beeane die. ahfected. Let them alone a while longer, and the prospect is, that Mortmonistn will work out its own rellmption. " A house disided against itself mnust fall." DECAY oF A~oLIT0NSM.-Under this head the New York Herald-notices the curtailment in size of the New York Times and New York Tribune, the two devoted organs of Wtm. H. Seward. The hard times have proved too much for abolitionism. It is shady in the legs, as well as corrupt at the core, and can never stand up to a pressure of any kind. THE ANNEXATION SCHEME.-A Washington correspotdentt writes : " I am persunded that we shall hear no mn-c, at this .session, of schemes for the acquisition of Cuba, of a port itn St. Domingo, and of the Sandwich Islatnds. These are wornout specu lations-and are as flat na any one of tile funey stocks that lately fell in your stock exchange, and like them, are dropped from the .political P10K WASHINGTON. The New York Herald of the 10th inst., con. tained thie annexed news items, which we ex tract, from its Washington c4respondent, under date of 9th inst. The greatest ercitemettt pteyails here in the White House and all the deparinzgnts, growing out of the Cabinet revelations in the Hemd. These disclosures are attributed to one of the quiet and pious members of the Cabinet--either Dobbin, Campbtll, or McCelland. I can expul. pate all these gentlemen, for 1, Sam Green, Jr., am your correspondent, and the guilty one, and I have only begun these di-elosures. I have near. ly ready copies of various official letters'on file at the 'Department of State,'from A, Dudley Mann, on European affairs and official costume; also of ex-Secretary Sanford, Mr. Mason and others, on the same subject, and many other subjects. . o nd A combination is forminghere of considera ble importance. Forney is laboring to impress upon Senator.Douglas a belief that, in the event of Buchanan failing to get the nomination for Presidency, the friends of Buchanan have deter. mined to unite upon Douglas, which, of course, will give him tne nomination. Forney, in his private conversations, asserts with great warmintf that nothing but death can prevent the trium phant success of his scheme. Still more importaItt information: Senator Douglas within the last few days has joined the Cushing and Forney interests, with an open avowal of hostility to Marcy. The private cor. respondence from abroad, of Cushings's. and ot hers, represent the resignation of Btchanin, blason and Soule as a fixed fact in the event of Marcy retaining his seat in the Cabinet, as also of opposition Lo the Pierce administration. barev has not been permitted to see the most important of the despatches from Soule and Buchanan, recently brought over by Sickles. Contrary to the wishes of the President, they have been circulating among a choice few, and -would yon believe it?-.hat the greater part of the information upon which the State De partment at this moment is acting, is more from hearsay Lhan from official documentary evidence within its possession. On the return of our ministers the stump is to be taken; our national foreign affairs will be one of the issues; Buchanan is to be the martyr, and if this game cannot succeed, Douglas is -left to fall back upon. Now, a wora: All this was settled upon at Ostend. Forney and Cushing have long been in possession 'f the facts' they are news, how. ever, to Douglas, who lis all along been inno cent of this by-play, and is so still, for with him all is honesty and fair dealing. The British minister complains of American sympathy for Russia, as calculated to engender bad feelings between the two governments. Marcy replies " that is their-the people's-look out; we are but their representatives." General Scott has been called here, as given out in the public prints, to confer with the War Committee of Congress; but in reality his busi ness is to assint in devining some important war measure, which for some time past has been a matter of contention between the President, the Secretary of War and Senator Shields. No LicENSE.-On Monday came off the elec tion for flunicipal ollicers of the town of New;. berry,rt which time was made a contest between what is vulgarly called " wet" and - dry." The "1 dry," however, prevailed, and we are rejoiced to know that our little town will not be infested this year, at least, with retail "doggerics." We understand that the " Know.Nothings" claim this as their first triumph. We cannot say. One thing, however, is-that for once, if such be the case, they have voted right. We hope that in matters of this kind they will always be with us. -Newberry Sentinel 10 inst.
