SUCCESSORS OF THE EMPEROR. The question :is to who will be the successor of the Emperor Nicholbs, snpposing him to be really dead, hinges on the fact that the Russian law provides that the oldest son of the reigning monarch shall be his succestor. Alexander, the oldest son of Nicholas, was born before his fath er came to his throne, and the friends of Con stantine contend that he, having been born "under the purple," is properly entitled to the crown. The distinction appears to be more technical than real, though its decision may give to Russia aisher futture Emperor, Alexander, who is understood to be a pacific disposition, or Constantine. who inherits both the military habits and the ambitious views of his father. If there really be this clashing of claims between Alexander aid Constantine, it may possibly ex plain the unusual haste with which the death of Nicholas was made public. Constantine being in the Crimea, and Alexander at St. Petersburg, it would be a matter of policy with-the latter to make known the death of his father, and to pro cure his own immediate recognition as Emperor. Constantine is known to be very ambitious, and many anecdotes are current which indicate his thirst for empire. He opposes the law of prim ogeniture, and declares: hat the throna is the birth right not of the oldest, but of the most worthy. One of his confidants once surprised him in the act of drawing lines on a map, and inquired what he was doing? "Marking the boundaries of my future empire," said he; " this," pointing to the North, "is for my brother, and this" (the South) "is mine." His name also, with the fatalism common in Russia. he believes fore shadows his destiny as the conqueror and ruler of Constantinople. He has made Turkish his tory, literature and politics his special study, and is thoroughly acquainted with the habits and charaiteristics of its people. ie is emphati cally the leader of the Russian party, and if lie succeed to the throne will abate no part of the obstinacy or perseverance with which his father has pursued the policy that Peter the Great committed to his successors. Rumor also as <erts that there is on file in the archives of the Russian Senate a document similar to that which gtve the crown to his fattier, by the re nunciation of it by an elder brother.-Baltimore American. DEATH OF THE HON. JAMES S. RHETT. Died vestcrday, at 12 o'clock, the lion. James Smith lnett, in' the tifty-eighth year of his age. His funeral will take place at 4 o'clock this af ternoo:i, at St. Philip's Church. Mr. Rhett was about the city, attending to his business in court, cheerful and well, on Fri. day last. In the night following lie was stricken with paralysis, and the attack was so violent that, though he was visited with intervals of sen sibility and seeming relief that gave hopes to his friends, his physicians from the first pro. non(ltced his case desperate. The functions of life gratdually yielded one after another to the power uf- the dlisease, tand he lapsed insensibly into thte last sleep, which is death. Mr. Rhett has long filled an honorable place itn this c~omnmunity. Durintg his many years ser vice in the Staie Senate, he was among the most patriolti. faithful and influential members of that body. As a member of the bar he held l.igh rank,' both for ability antd fair dealing. lie was in his profession, as in private life, a gentlema~n. But his best and most shitning quatlities appeared in social life. Never was there a more genial man, or one who had a bet ter taculty of difftusing thte warmth antd light of a cheerful nature over the circle of htis friends. And all this is ntow quenched, as it were a fl.ane put out by a blast, atnd those who a few days ago felt cheered by his very presence, are enlletd upon to gather sorrowfully arounid htis cold claty, and give up forever to God that cheer ful, truthful and friendly spirit, whose track hais beeni marked through life by so many endcarintg asociations.-Charleston Mercury, 23d inls?. TUE Naw Ap.,:r ArromNENm.-Thte ap poitments in the four addition:;l regiments ot the United States army have been completed and are announced in1 general orders. The majority of commissions are given to civiliatns. The officers of the armty, so far as they accpt appointtments in these regiments, will create vacancies in the regiments in which they have heretofore served, and tnuts from twenty to thirty additional original appointments will be made from civil life. Fotur of the atppointmnents are from South Carolina, and .:mong thesei we aire gratified to perceive that one of our fellow-citizenis, an ofii cer whto distinguished himself in the Mexican war, has receivcd a captain's commission. Wec congratulate Captaini DeSaussure ott his appointt. muent. and feel cotnfidetit that he will stustain the reputattion he has already earned, and prove a worthy representative of the Palmetto State in his itew antd honorable positiont.

QUEENx YICToRTA's ISA NIT.-The Washing totn correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot, in a letter of Friday, alludes to this report. i~e says: Affairs in England seem to be in a worse con dition than they have been in for centuries past; and to add to her trotubles, I seec it stated that fears tire entertained that the Queen is laboring under the htereditary disease of insanity. I sin cerely hope and trujst that this may be a slander of the opposition. Shto is anxious to do right if her ministers would let hier, anid I entertain a high opinion of the conservative principles of her consort, if his advice could prevail there would be a speed~y peace, and it might be accom plished niow, if Nicholas be dead, without loss of honor; for England might say, we warred agatinst him believing him to be ambitious of extending his territorial limits; we are willing to be ott terms of amity with his successor tuntil we see sonme evidence of his being actuated by the same spirit of aggrandizement. At all events, whether successful or not, England muighit consistently and honorably make the pro. position. But would Ahexatider II entertain it. He knows better than his father did the strength of his armies in the Crimea, and the weakness of his adversaries. Will he forego the glory he might win by driving them from his territory? Whoscan say ? There ts another consideration; should England be willing fo entertaini this, pro. posit ionc would France consent to it? I fear WASHINGTON, March 19. Secretary Dobbin is still confined to his house. The President had an interview with him to-day. It is rumored that orders go -out to Havana for the naval force there to seek reparation for the El Dorado outrage. The steamer Princeton with ten heavy guns, is already there; the steam er Fulton, with five guns; the frigate Columbia, with fifty guns; and the sloop Falmouth, with twenty guns, are either there now or will be very soon. They are all under command of commodore Newton. There is an additional force of fifty-four guns at Norfolk ready, if wanted, at short notice. The Administration is fiery, but I dont know how long it will contin ue so. CINcINNATI, March 20. TiiE two slaves arrested here on Saturday on a writ of habeas corpus were brought into court. to-day when Judge Storer informed them that they were at liberty to go free, but they prefer red to return with their masters and were at once conveyed atross the river withoutt excite ment. The Probate Court has issued an attachment for the Captain of the steamer Falls City, who had nineteen slaves on board the boat on Sun dav evening at the warf and prevented the Siireff from examining the boat until the slaves were conveyed in a yawl to the Kentucky shore. The weather is very cold here and the ther mometer is down to 20 degrees. ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR. EDGEFIELD, S. C. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 1855. Read and take warning !

COLD AGAIN. WrTus the last few days the thermometer in this latitude has gone down 35 degrees again, and early vegetation is much nipped. Serious apprehensions are entertained that the fruit crop in this vicinity is materially injured. Garden vegetables have s l'ered especially. We have heard of no wheat sufficiently advanced to be affected by frost, but suppose if there was any that it will soon look rather chop-fallen. The abominable spell was introduced by a slight snow storm which contrary to all precedent cleared off cold. We had thought that winter was fairly gone and in company with a majority of our brethrrn- of the press had sounded his requiem, when here lie came again hopping along on his crusty old shoes and trod on our cabbage beds with a vengeance. COL. WIOGFALL. IT delights us to hear from various sources that our old and valued friend, Col. Louis T. WIGFALL, for merly of this village, is taking high rank both as a lawyer and a politician in the State of Texas. This is no more than what we all along expected with un wavering confidence, knowing as we did the uncom mon strength of intellect and force of character which marked him from boyhood up. By Texas papers re ceutly received, we learn that hre is beginning to mix more freely in the pulitical affairs of the State of his adoption. For no one on earth have we ready a more hearty "God speed" thatn fir Loots TraEzEvANT WIFALL. May thre brightness of success crown his days of exertion, and may -the evening of life fall calmly arnd beautifully upon him anid his! MORE BURNING. Os Saturday last the winds were up antd the fires out once more, so:newhat after the style of the preced ing week. Thte earth was damper however and the destruction little or nothing in the cotmparison. We had the pleasure, stuch an one as it was, of witnessing quite a display in this line in our inmmediate vicinity. The woods wvere in a light blaze i n two sides of our habitation, while the snmuks rolled ill immense vol umes almost over our very bead. Bitt luckily, or rather by dint of a good many hard licks and stome pretty hurried scraping awsay of pitne straw, we es. caped without the loss of a stngle rail. The plan of fightigfire sith fre was also adopted by or own and the neighbors' hands with considerable skill. Other wie much moure damage might have etnsued tha~n resly did. THlE CZAR'S DEATH. Turts fact is as yet uncontradico ; although some ar still of the opinion that it is at least a premature announcement. Yet quite as mutch ink arnd paper have been exhausted in commenting upon the event and i:s probable consequences, as though he were douhly dead. One set is of the opinion that It wvill materially affect thle position of Eastern affairs. Another says this can scarcely be, as NxssEr.oRnc, the great coun sellor, is still alive and at the helm, while the identi cal generals yet have charge of the army. At any rate, cotton has gone up a fraction, and the anti-Rus sian world generally seems to he much cheered up. We hardly know whether to be glad or sorry. We want cotton to go op of courrse ; hut, on the oti er hand, we want to see England arid France whlipped :e little worse before our war ns ith them begiins. BUSINESSS NOTICES. B. C.

WITr & PALMER.-This is a new firm, fur the more extensive carrying on of Cabinieb_ Sash and Blind, and general fine-Carpenter-work business. Al ways try home folks first. REPLANTING. WE would like t o have the opinion ot' our outsidle confreres, upon the subject of replanting corn, thus far, viz: as to whether it is better to replant corn at once after it has been bitten by a frost, or to wait patiently for it to grow out again. It occttrs to our unagricultural nuddle, that when there is a very bad stand (from arty cause) the surest way is to plow up and plant over again. But we arc erhaps wrong. What says COLTER i A "FLASH IN THE PAN." TE lately-threatened intvnsion of Cuba, by an army of fifteen thousand men under General QeITMAN, has trrned out to be a perfect flash in the pan. After all that was said about the splendor of the hero's military genius, the magnificence of the enterprise and the ripeness of the occasion, the sword that gleamned so brightly about the gates of Mexico stilt slumbers in its scabbard, and the army, that was to have followed it as an oriflamme of victory, is simply niocre. We had so oftent heard inutendoes and read on-dits hinting at something mysteriously grand which was to be the end of all this QurvTxAN and Cuba talk, that we were realy unprepared for stuch an insignificant denoue ment. How do you explain it, gentlemen fillibusters 1 Was it the mere breath of the P'resident's nostrils that upset all your grand operations ! Poor Pierce ! A pack.horso indeed for others' failings mutt you he at DEATH OF ZEBULON RUDULPH, Sr. WE see the death of this old citizen of our District recorded in the Western papers. He expired, aged 86 years, at is home in Alabama, to which State he removed in his declining dlays. Mr. RUDULPH was for many years a useful and highly respected South Carolinian. Friends in Edge' field, and elsewhere throughout the State, recall his name and character with reverence and esteem. A high-toned ma'n and a zealous Christian, he scorned what was low or disreputable, whether in his domes tic walk or in his intercourse with the world around him. Although no aspirant for public distinction, he yet manifested the deepest interest of an enlightened freeman in every thing appertaining to the werl of his country, and especially of South Carolina. In 1832 we think it was, when the largest political meet ing ever held in the District, assembled at the Court I-louse to confer upon measures of redress'against Federal oppression, a man was looked for to preside over the vast and excited assemblage, and ZEDULOs RUDUt.ri was selected. Ife was then sixty-four. but still burning with all the fire of forty. This was no ordinary compliment; fur it was no ordinary cecasion, neither was it by any means an ordinary meet-ng. It was a meeting of indignant freemen, resolved upon vindicating their rights by the sword if need there should be; and its presiding officer was selected with a view to the dignity of his character and the pitch of his politics. Edgefield's conduct in '33 was the fruit, in great part, of that very day'. proceedings. We have said Z.BULON RUDULPH was one wh scorned a mean thing. As evidence of this, we will repeat a single circumstence of which we were personally cognisant: When it was first mooted, years ago, that Marshal NEy and MrcuA EL RUDULPM were identical, we happened one day at ZEULON RUDUtLrt's house. The conversation turned Opon this topic. MICHAEL RUDULP was Z uitr.o.' brother. Our old frier:d very warmly discaimed all manner of belief in the story tntil it should be clearly proven ; and this,' for the reason that it exposed hi! brother's reputation to the charge of having deserted forever his wife and children in America. " I don't believe," added he, " my brother M cHtAv.Lcould have been guilty of such a thing. And if ie was, I shoultd never acknowledge him even with the glories of a NEY cast around his baseness." There spoke a good man and a true; and such a man was the subject of out present remarks.. SERENADING THE JUDGE. We went out (some dozen good fellows) on Thurs. day night last, to serenade our glorious old Senator, Judge BUTLER, as a passing compliment upon his return to Stonelands. The night was a little cold, but otherwise all that we could desire; and the whole party were in fine mood for doing the handsome thing. Within a hundred yards of the house we halted te prepare our lanterns, instruments, notes, &c. The consequence was some little unavoidable noise. With. out observing it, we had ap: roached much nearer the Judge's office, in which he sleeps, than we reckoned upon. The commotion tn our ranks, it seems, aroused him out of a good old-fashioned country nap. And his stern demand of" Whogoes there," had justabout enough if the military in it to make our leader deem it advisable to respond immediately. In reply to the accord which we at once sounded, the old man's voice was on a different key altoether. It told of the hos pitable breast whence it proceeded. He saw our object in a twinkling, and his hearty " Come along up, boys, come along up," called forth a burst of melody which only such genial tones can elicit. After-that, all was right. Old "Stonelands" was made to ring again with music, while its dist'nguished master, " accou tred as he was" in dressing gown and boots, came out in person and " bade us follow." So indeed we did ; and (blame us not for rehearsing it, Sons of Tempe rance !) the " Mountain Dew" which then and there we tasted was of that old and oily kind which even you might have excused as a cordial. But we cannot further speak of the private hospitality here an nobly displayed. On the part of the band, we would ex press to the Judge their heart-felt gratification with all that transpired on the or'casion. Our common prayer is, that many years of his iseful life may yet be spared to the country. WHAT'S BECOME OF THlE GRAY SULPHUR LAst fall, all the invalids in thtis vicinity were ex tolling the Gray Sulpur water otf Edgefield to the skies for its remarkably sanative properties. Everybody and everything seemed to be astir Ott the subject for a w eek, or a week and a half, or two weeks, or twe weeks and a half, otr even ihree weeks. Since then, the Gray Sulphuir Springs have been dropped entirely. But this we suppose was because winter came on, when p -ople did not need mineral waters. Now that the Spring season is approachting with its heartburnt and indtigestions (to be followved tip by the summet with its fevers andI agues,) we shall expect to see our mineral waters again brought into repte. As we at last have a daily line of stages runining by us, on one of the most direct routes between the upper and the lower country, who knows but that strangers may hi induced to soutrn and try our mineral spring!? Andi thu stoppinig of one may induce the stopping of anothfr. And thte healing oif two may lend to the healing ol many. And the healing of manty tmay give our little mineral spring 'eclat.' And the whole thing may re~ sut ini giving our town a good eatl miore conmpany, and consequent chiertulness, thtan usually falls to itt lot. Wouldl it not be well, in this view of the cause, to have the spring and the spring grounds all refizedl and rearranged in good time. Havinig donte this, out hoelkeepers might advertise in the Chatlestun, Au gusta and Savannah papers that they are reatdy t' receive visitors, that the village of E Igefield is as hetlhy as the mountains, and that (last but not least) hre is a minerat spring hard by to wich every one is entitled to go and drink freely. Hlas nobody about Edgefield village a spark of P'. T. BAaSUM 's mettle in his composition!? --0+-- -- A NEW CHASE. Y?oU'o America is fiercely on the qui rice for short and 0- sy roads to wealth. Hence the numerous enter prises of a fi'libusteri, g character. Amontg the rest, we notice oine entitled an A ttractive Project, allutded to by B. L. PosEr Esq., in a letter to the editor of the A bbeville Independent Press written from Muntigome' ry, Alabama. No accounut is given of the aforesaidl attractive project except that it is to be most brilliant in its career and immensely productive of wealth to all who may untite itn it. Mr. PosEY in calling upont the young men of this section to joitn himself and o'heri in this I ran new expedition (or whatever it may be) thus writes: it is indteed a most dazzling project, certaitn of stic cess, anid w'ill prove a Lamp of Ahadtdin to the adveni turers. If there are any young men in yotirseetion, of cour age antd character, wsho wvish to follow my lead, anti make an ample foartune in three years, they can have it insured by early appalicatiton to tme, at this place. If there are anty whto wish toa invest money that will quadruple itself ini tne year, I ofyer thiem tlte opportumi ty. Thu article below is sufliiciently explicit, andi dichlses all that can now be disclosed. Y'ours respectfully, B. L. POSEY. THlE LAST FROM THE RABUN GAP. Mr. GoUlR DIN still refuses to pay a cent to the stub' contractors, and matters on the Itabun Gap line of Railroad operations continue in a very disagreeable posture. Probably there will be a lawsuit before the dificulty is determined, and this, we fear, may occa sion consiiderable unnec essary delay in the prosecution of thte work. But we have thet opinion of several gen. tlemen in that quarter that the building of the road ii placed beyond contingency, and that its completion cainot be easily post ptoned. "iHOW ARE YOU OFF FOR GREENS1"t Tiusexclaimed an urchin at our gale the other day, whlo had come to "tborrow a mess." We told him to go intio the garden, and the turnip patch, anti every where else he thought advisable, and rake all h saw. If Ito got his mess, it's more thtan we thought at the time. But if lie had said " How are you ofi fr chickens 1" we should have been still worse stuck. And still worser, if turkeys had been the subject of nquiry. Nobody seems to remember that we are an editor this year. Hard luck ! More Breakers Ahead. MANs' persons, and among the rest such clever gen. tlemen as the editors of the Washington Sentinoel, are predicting that the United States will be- n a war with otne or more of the European powers before atno ther year shall have passed. Cuba of course is to be th bone of contention. We mention the speculation' It is, as most spoctilatory opinions are, very questiona. ble. Yet, looking at matters as they stand, JA csso~s lor.ts' bet upon the result would hie about as good VESTVALLI. A MoNG the newly arrived ' artistes' in vogue among the play-goers of Gotham, we observe one called VESTVAL.L, who seems to be quite a favorite. Un. like the " stars" in general, she comes down to earth occa.sionally and mixes with mortals after a sort of mormai fashion. That is to say she "goes ont" ad takes tea occasionally, and permits herself known otherwise than across the foot-lights and over the heads of an orchestra. Conseusiently, she is wonder. fully popular. And she appears to be supporting her popularity, not only by remarkable excellence in her art, but by a course of conduct highly characteristic of a pure and elevated woman. Her pay is about eight hundred dollars per month, pretty good wages for these tight times! She was a pupil Of AERCA DA NTE's, and is a native of Poland. In her own coun try her name was WzSTWALLIVZEZ; but an Italian pupilage has changed it into the somewhat more pro nounceablo one above given. "OLD DOG TRAY." Teis is a very pretty song, with a chorus which admits of being arranged into an excellent Quartette. We append the words for the benefit of such of our young friends as "don't know the tune but can't re mem'er the words." " The morn of lire is past, And evening comes at last, It brings me a dream of a once happy day Of merry forni I've seen Upon the village green, Sporting with my old dog Tray. (Cuonus.) Old dog Tray's ever faithful Grief cannot drive him away H1e's gentle, he is kind, I'll never, never find A better friend than old dog Tray. -r The forms I called my own, Ha.:e vanished one by one, The lov'd ones, the dear ones have all passed away; Their happy smiles have flown, Their gentle voices gone, I've nothing left but ofdcleg Tray.

Wr cracked a bottle of this delightful Rhenish wine with our friend LznEscuUrTz the other day, and ca: not fail to recommend the article to our wine tasters, as a very superioi 'racy and healthful bev erage. We have no dt ubt that 3Mr. L. would accom modate any gentleman, who desired as much as from one toa half.dozen boxes brought out, by ordering them through It well-posted friend of his in New York. It strikes us that it would be some better for a good many people to use this light wine instead of certain stronger potations now very high in favor. Hence our reference to the Shalachber er.

Notwithstanding the opinions of many wh< ocetpy prominent posts, we urge the imnt diat< capture of the Island of Cuba, and all the pre. lininary arrangments necessary to the foruitior of a Southern Republic. The quiet and conservative press of the coun try, among which the Savannah Georgian is mosl conspicuous, referring to the recent outragt upon an American vessel, remarks: THE CUBA OUTaAGE.-Another outrage hat been commated uuon American commerce-an. other insuit offered to the American flag. A. U S. mail steimer, peacefully traversing the water adjacent to the Island of Cuba has been 6red upon by a Spanish figate, without cause or provocation. When we have made this state. nent we have said all. There are no extenuat. ing cireumstances. It was a cold, teliberate aci performed in open day, and simply because the Cuban authorities happened to feel in a mood for it. Were this the first. act of the kind, we should feel disposed to keep silent and await that judi. cial investigation which the matter will doubt. less reeaive. But our relations with Cuba are no longer the subject of Cabinet Councils alone they concern the whole world. It is high tint that the people spoke out and insisted that some. thing be done. We have had encounters oI cunning diplomacy enouigh, we now want action 1 action! Our commerce is languishing, our honor insulted, and yet we look coolly on as though it was a matter that by no means concerned us. We are by no means advocates of violent meusurea. We would have this much vexed question settled quietly and in peace. We be. lieve, indeed, it can be if it be brought in a pro. per and energetic manner before the Govern. inent of Spain. If she cannot be induced to anticipate an inevitable ev3nt, and part, for n liberal consideration, with a possession, which she can hardly expect long to hold, we can at least insist upon some guarantees for the future, Satisfaction for past insults which have already reached a goodly number, we do not speak of though the list is one to make American blood run cold. We speak for the security and inter. est of American commerce in the future. It cannot be denied that the principal cause ot !hese frequent and shameful events is the irresponsible character of the Cuban govern. ment. For insults so coolly offered we must seek satisfaction at the distant Court of Aladrid Considering the changeable character of the hotne government itself, this amounts, in fact te no satisfaction at all. All who are crnver. sant with late Spanish negotiations, know howt difficult it is to bring Cuban affairs before the government. Even in case a minister is success. ful in the incipient step, the shrewd Spanisl diplomat manages in some way to put off oi entirely evade the issue. Another, and perhaps the real cause of al' the difficulties, is the interference of the Frenel and English govertnment in affairs oti the Anwri can Continent. Confident of protection, in cast (if need, the Cuban authorities are emboldene in a course of conduct towards the Unite States, that no other civilized country woutk lor.g endure. Wec can, indeed, well conceive people jealous of~ the rising tfortunes of thu Atmerican Republic, secretly urging otn thtest irresponsible agents from insult to insult. The course of our Government in this matte: is plain. It is to insist, after the satisfaction o past injuries, seriously, aind with that dignit) which becomes a great people, upon two distinel ultimate-first, upon some security for futurt good behatvior; secotndly, upon0 the withdrawn of their menacing fleets and the entire cessatiot of British and French interferetnce in the affairn of Cuba. A commnerciaul treaty, too, betweer the two couintrie-, should be pressed upon th< cotnsideration of' the Spanish Government, that our commerce be no longer subject to insulhin; embargoes, whenevrr it pleases the colonia authorities to amuse themselves with detaining and searching Americatn vessels. By the instruc tions of the State Department to our Minister: at the Courts of WVestminmster and Madrid, wi understand our Government has already taker this. statid, diplomatically. But what we wan now is not diplomacy, but earnest, serious, au thuritative actiotn. THE BLACK WARIOR CAsE SErrLF..-Tlhi substaunce of the following information wa: givent to the public some days ago.

A certain number of persons are to be elected in each town by the inhabitants to act as mediators. The office Is to be one of honor and not of profit-no fee to be received except for personal expenses or disbursements. The ean ses of action of which this M.ediatiom Court is to take cognizance are libel, slander, malicious persecution, breach of promise of marriage, assault, battery, false imprisonment, r.nd actions of contract on claims not exceeding $100. Parties may voluntarily appear before the conrt without notice. A reconciliation effected before this court, is to be a final determination of the matter in controversy. A trial of a newly-invented self breech-londing and priming carbine has been ma-de at the School of Musketry at Hythe. in England. Sixty shots can be fired from this weapon in seven minutes ; out of that number, at a range of one hundred vards, forty-seven struck the bull's eye. Total immersion in water of the carbine, loaded, did not affect its explosive power, the fusee being readily discharged. The rapidity of the firing did not produce the slightest derangemnent, the piece neither requiring oiling nor cleaning. THE bombardment of Sebastopol was to be gin as soon as all the guns were pliced and the ammunition ready. It is said that the English lines alone will fire away 420 tons of shot in twelve hours, and the French lines nearly 800 tons; so that any one may calculate the amount required for an incessant bombardment of fifty or sixty hours. The English have already about 1,400 tons of shot and shell at camp, and when about 600 tons more are added to that it was expLeted that they would commence firing. CorPEn.-Quite a large vein of Sulphuretted Copper ore is now being wrought in the vicinity of our village, by Mrs. Cannon and Mr. 11. Ste phenson. This mine may prove a valuable dis covery; we hear that one or two gentlemen, skilled in these matters. have examined it, and speak eneournrgingly. There is no doubt of the ore being a fine specimen of the Sulphuret; and neid solution will quickly coat a smooth knife Wade with retalic Copper; but is it rich enough to pay for the mining, transporiion,and smelting? That is the question. A beautiful blossom has been left on our table for inspection.-Ab beville Batnner. "Is THE CZAR DEAD?"-This (says the Balti more Patriot) is an open question. A commins sion house in that city is in receipt of Messrs. Maclane, Mores & Co.'s London Circular, by the Africa. A postscript, written at the latest moment before the steamer's sailing. says that a rumor was current that the Empress of Russia wts dead. It would be singular, if an event so marvelous as the Czar's death had taken place, and an extensive business house as the above, be so indefinite on the subject. COMMERICTAL. CREDIT.-The Tallahassee, Flor ida Sentinel says: "In conversation the other day with an intel ligent merchant of this placejust from the city of New York, we were gratified to -learn through him that Florida in the commercial world stands second best on the list of States for promptitude and punctuality. South Carolina first-Florida second. Of the debts contracted since March 1854, South Carlina has paid fifty-eight, and Florida fifty-seven per cent. All the other States fall considerably below these figures most of the Western States not averaging more than twenty-five or thirty per cent." QUEER DoDGE.-It has been discovered that a keeper of a Inger bier celler in the Bowery, for the purpose of evading the law reqiiring him to close his place on Sunday, has been in the habit of holding pretended religious services, therein. officiating himself as the leader of cere monies.
