Arrival of the Stetmer Asia.
TEBEE DkYS i PTM FRO EUROPE. HALIFaX, June 20. The Cunard steatner Asia arrived here this morning, with Liverpool dates to the.Oth June, The news by this arrival is again highly ex citing. The bombardment of Sebastopol was re-com - menced on the 6th. The greatest gallantry was displayed on both sides, and the losses sustained by both the Rus sians and French were very great, but no fig ures are given. This event caused a great buoyancy in public feeling in England, and caused a slight rise in consols. With the exce tion of the above, there is no other news of special importance. On the day the steamer sailed, a despatch was received from Lord Raglan, dated the day previous, June 8th, at 6 o'clock p. m., announc ing that, after a fierce bombardment, the French attacked and carried the famous Mamelon and White Tower batteries! The buoyant feeling in the cotton market at the departure of the St. Louis subsequently - gave way, and prices underwent a partial de cline, which however was afterwards recovered, aud the market closed steady, at about previous quotations. The business of the week embrac ed about 107,000 bales, mostly taken on specn lation. There was no change in breadstuffs of mo imont, except in corn, which has advanced is. 'since the departure of the Atlantic. Provisions were generally firm, and in some teases there has been an advance. LONDON MONEY aIARKET.-The market is still easier. There has been another great in crease in bullion in the Bank of England. Con sols closed at 92. Peace negotiations are not likely to be resum ed- unless Russia requests it. Austria considers herself released from all engagements with the Western powers, but still proposes an alliance with France and England. The Russian Pleni. potentiaties were still considering the proposi tions of Austria, but the ambassadors of the allies had left Vienna. The allies had not advanced beyond the Teher naya. GO. READER ANE HIS KANSAS SPECULATION. The Washington Union of the 18th inst., occupies several columns with a very piquant and interesting correspondence between Gov. Reeder, and Commissioner Manypenny, Mr. Clark, Indian Agent, Secretary Marcy, &c., in which there is considerable sharp shooting, and a very decided indication that the official days of Gov. Reeder, Judges Jahnston and Elmore, and Attorney General Isaacs, of Kansas, are numbered. Improper speculation in Indian reserve lands by these high officials, is the graremen of their offence as charged. We can see no prospects of their relieving themselves, even on the s.ate ment of Gov. Reeder, from public rebuke and political decapitation. ,The Charleston Standard of yesterday, con tains a letter from its Washington correspond ent, from which we make The following extract on this subject: WAsHINGTON, June 19th, 1855. A few days since I gave you the result of a consultation held at the President's House, in relation to Governor Reederand'his speculations in Indian lands. I then stated th.t it had been determined by the President, that Governor Reeder should not return to Kansas, and that his associates in land speculation should also retire from office. An interesting correspon dence, published in the Union of yesterday morning, confirms all your correspondent strated, and proves his sources of information to lbe entirely reliable. it was determined bmy the Executive that Governor Reeder should not return, and Secretary Marcy, finding the Gover nor in New York, and about leaving for the WVest, attempted to arrest his progress by writ ing him that the Pres'dent, "consistently with his convictions of duty, could not allow his present otlieiail relation to the territory to con tinue, unless the impressions which now rested upon his mind should be removed by satisfaoc tory explanation."' It was believed by Secreta ry Marey that this note would act as a ne exet upon the movements of' the Governor, but in this lie was sadly mistuken, for the Governor with the greatest sang froid imaginable, informs the Secretary of State that his note was filed away, to be answered at a mare convenient sea son, when it could be attended to " without a gross neglect of offieial duty." This cool dodge of the noose aroused the lion in the old Seers tary, and it is now understood that a successor to Reeder will be appointed at once, with instruc tions to puah on to Kansas with all possible dis patch, and bearing ijn his pocket the card of dis missal for Reeder. Similar notes to the one addressed to Gover nor Reeder, are also addressed, by the Att,ofney General, to Judges Johnson and Elmore and Mr. District Attorney Isaaes-notifying them of an anticipated removal in the event they can not explain away Governor Reader's positive declarations as to their joint interest in his land speculations in Kansas. " THE FA3UINE" AT THE WVsT.-The receipts of breadstuffs at the upper hake ports are tre mendous, and in the race of the immense re ceipts of corn, and the export demand but nom inal, with a limited distilling business, the pies. ent prices of this- description of grain cannot be maintained. 103,436 bushels were received at portsa on the Upper Lakes in one day.' At Buffalo and Oswego the receipts reported on Monday reached 7,824 bbls. flour, 82,897 bush. ela of wheat, 180,027 bushels corn, and 193,275 bushels oats. THE NEBRAsEA Kanssas BHXL..-The New Yorlr Journal of Commerce estimates that 100 members are already elected to Congress (or to be elected from the South,) opposed to the re peal of the Nebraska bill, and but 18 more are needed to make a majority against touching it. We quote: "It is not impossible, nor very improbable, that this number will be fouhd, (among the 134 members not included in the above calculation,) will oppose repeal, although some of them voted against the bill on its passage. In other wvords, it is by no means certain that a bill to repeal the Nebraska law can pass the house. But if it should, it will be defeated by a large majority in the Senaite. And before a new Congress is elected, Nebraska will probably be knocking for admission into the Union as a State." Coxrr.ME5TRY.-In the brilliant debate that took place in the recent General Assembly, be tween the intellectual giants of the Church, on the subject of extra-church organizations, Dr. Thornwell, of South Carolina, being taunted by Dr. Bordman, in a reference to the political Shistory, of South Carolina, replied: -" He coula not conclude these remarks with out an allusion to what he considered the high. est compliment ever paid him, when his brother said he occupied the same position in the Church that was occupied by a distinguished politician of his State, (South Carolina.) He believed if there ever was a man upon whom every god had set his seal to give the world assurance of 'man, that man was John C. Calhoun." ligBLE EXAMLE.-The Presbyterian Church othIarietta, after raising a considerable amount of money for building their new and commodi ous-brick church, found a debt of about $3, 600-rej4onpe At a recent meeting, we under 'stand that psmbers agreed that an assessment should be ny.age upon them in proportion to thuir property, referring to the tax-book if ne essary, and that they would then pay off the church debt. We do not remember having ever before keown thjs principle of contributing accor-ding to meaini and ability adopted and car ried out by any body of Christians or others. It is the correct principle, and the church thus acting has set an ekample worthy to be followed in other parts of our land, sand by all denomina tions.-Atlanta lIntelligenser.

' BOTraE OF A CoMusoN CALLING: We, the Greenwood Agricultural - Society, do now ear nestly and respectfully call your thoughtful at tention -to the -subject of an Agricultural Con vention, to meet in Columbia on the second Wednesday of August of this year, for the pur pose of founding a State Agricultural Society, on a liberal utilitarian and comprehensive scale, to- meet the wants and interests of agriculture in all its details. We think the time is past to use any argument to prove the necessity of some movement for the improvement of our bu siness and the amelioration of the soil. To look sternly and knowingly at our present con dition, should convince the meat seeptieal, and remove all fears and prejudice from the minds of all who dread innovations. There is a fear ful magnitude in the destructive tendencies of our present system, that requires to be met and stayed. Under this conclusion, the Greenwood Agricultural Society do most earnestly call up on every agricultural society, farmer and planter, and all other professions, arts and trades, by your delegates, to meet us in' Columbia, on the above specified day, to there work out the base work for future improvement of this great in terest of the State, and the permanency of society. We most respectfully ask of every newspaper in the State, that feels an interest in the social condition of our people and their well being, so deeply connected with the agricultural improve ment of the State, to copy this short address. Let it spread the whole length and breadth of the land, by the voice of the many-tongued presses of the State. By order of the Green wood Agricultural Society. JOHN P. BARRATT, JAMES GILLAM, THOMAS B. BYRD. ABBEVILLE, June 17, 1855. Committee' A MODEL Dus.-An Editor "out west" thus talks to his non-paying subscribers and patrons. If his appeal does not. bring the "pewter," we think he need never try again: "Friends, Patrons, Subscribers and Adverti sers Hear us for our debts, and get ready that you may pay; trust us, we are in need, and, have regard for your need, for you have been long trusted; acknowledge your indebtedness and dive into your pockets, that you may promptly tork over. If there be among you, one single patron that don't own us something, then to him we say-step aside; consider yourself a gentleman. If the rest wish to know why we dun them, this is our answer! Not that we care about cash ourselves, but our creditors do. Would you rather that we go to jail, and you go free, than you to pay your debts, and we all keep moving? As we agreed, we have worked for you; as we contracted, we have furnished our paper to you; as we promised, we have waited upon you, but as you don't pay. we dun you! Here are agreements for job work; con tracts for subscription ; promises for lung cred its; and dues for deferred payment. Who is there so mean he don't take a paper? If any, lie needn't speak-we don't -mean him. Who is there so green that he don't advertise? If any, let him slide-he ain't the chap either. Who is there so bad that he dont pay the prin ter? If any, let him shout-for he's the man we're after. His name is Legion, and he's been oaing us for one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and eight years-long enough to make us poor, and himself rich at our expense. if the above appeal to his conscience doesn't wako him to a sense of justice, we shall have to try the law and see what virtue there is in ~vrits and constables." The movement in land warrants is increasing. this being a busy time in makin~g locations on new lands. A large quantity is now in market, owing to the recent large issues by the govern ment. Thompson's New York Reporter says the buying price in the street is 61,07, and sel ing at 61,10 per acre. The new warrants are 80, 120 and 160, acres. THrE CANAL HIOTs IN INDJANA.-Furth~er out -ages.-We have already briefly noticed, says he Baltimore Sun, the outrages of a mob in Clay and Vigo counties, hida., in cutting away he canal in t'hese counties. They have since ommitted various other outrages, and threaten ed the lives of the officeers if .they undertook to epair the damage done. A few days ago Gov. Wright issued his proclamation warnimg the ob of the coimsequences, as he should enforce bedience if lie had to order Out the whole mili ia of the State. This but exasperated them, and they have since driven off all the workmen, estroyed several locks; threatened to lyiich very 'one living in the vicinity who opposed hem, and have offered a reward for the Gover or's head. The origin of all these outrages, is ot clearly stated. A DISTINGUISHED Ymsio.-Edmund Lafany tte, grandson of the Mlarquis de Lafaiyette, so istinguished as the brave and generous cham pion of American Independence hius been spend. ng a few days in Delaware with the -Du Ponts, who were the early friends of the General. Trhe Wilmington Journal says: In company with a few friends, he has visited all the places of interest in the vicinity, one of is earliest visits being to the scene of the bat tle at Chadd's Ford, in which hiis ancestor first shed his blood in our cause. The very spot upon which this General was standing when he was wounded, wars pointed out by some of the old residents, Mr. Lafayette is about 28 years of age, of ine couptenance and engaging manners. He bears some resemblance to his grandfather, through a much handsomer man. Nor MUcur LIKE FAMINE -The receipts of breadtuffs at the upper lake port. are tremen dous, and in the face of the immense receipts of corn, and the export demand but nominal, with a limited distilling business, the present price of this description of grain cannot be maintained. 103,436 bushels were received at ports on the upper lakes in one day. At Buffat lo anid Oswego the receipts reported on Monday reached 7.824 bbls, of .fiour, 82;897 bushels of wheat, 180,027 bushels corn, andh 103, 275 bush els oats. IN consequence of the removal of the News paper Stamp Duty in England, new jouriials and weekly papers are spriinging up in every direc tion in that country. in Manchester, where a ear ago there were no daily papers, and only three of any kind, there are now going to be ive daily papers, in addition to several weekly ad semi-weekly one. IN WANT OF MEN.-Both England and Rus sia appear to be hard pushed to find human food for powder in the present sanguinary war they are waging, fur while England is enlisting for igtrs in America and Germany, Russia has brought into Europe the barbarous hordes of Asiatic Tartary, and are forcibly incorporating nto their army the Bayazid, the Armenians and Kurds. With such immense armnies in the field, ad the continual loss of thousands by disease ad battle, the ease cannot be otherwise. EXCELLENT CoUNCIL.-Two things to be kept -your word and your temper. Thie former when dealing with a printyr, and the latter when isputing with a woman. This may be difficult ut can be done by gettting a couple of chap. ers of Job by heart. IMPOR TANT RAIEOAD DECISSION IN FLOlIA. -Thie people of Jacksonville having some time since voted a subscription of $50,000 to the Florida Central Railroad, a motion was last week made and argued before the Chancery ourt of Duval county, for an injunction to revent the corporation of Jacksonville from axing the property of the town, to meet the ayments of the bonds. A friend from Jack onville informs us that the Chancellor, Judge orwood, after a prolonged argument, refuses the injunction, thu~s affirming the legality of the sbscription and the liability of the corporation. -Savh.

Gnoss SUESTITlozN.-Haninah Banks admit ted recently at the Hull (England) Assizee, that se had roasted a toad a live, pounded it, and mixed it with the food of her follow servant, whom she hoped by that -means to induce to love her. OBITUARY. For the Advertiser. Ma. Erroa:-It becomes our painful duty.as a friend, to record the death of OweN CLART, second son of Col. M. W. and Dempsey Clary. He de parted this life on the 7th instant, at his father's re sidence, Edgefield District, in the 19th year of his age. While in a state of health, and enjoying the bright prospect of a long and useful life, he fell a victim to that awful disease (Dysentery,) which has so' long baffled the skill of the Medical Faculty, and in a few days was taken from time to eternity. .We seldom notice the death of a young man of such an exemplary character. He was a dutiful and obedi ent son, a kind and affectionate brother, and was never known to utter a profane word in his life. The awful solemnity that pervaded the assembly of friends and relatives who accompanied his remains to their resting place, and the many tears that were shed over his tomb, clearly evinced their love, and show ed too plainly their loss was irreparable. Could the sighs and groans, and prayers and tears of an affee tionate father and a loving mother have raised him, or the kind and unceasing attention of riends and relatives have lengthened out his days the hand of death would have been stayed. But alas! the Di vine Maker had ordered it otherwise. The subject of this tribute of respect was a student of Mount Euon Academy, where, by exercising that kind and amiable disposition which characterized his life, he won the universal esteem of both teachers and stu dents. His rare talent, udespairing application. and the diffusion of knowledge, which must natural ly flow from so pure a fountain, makes his loss irre parable. In his death the school has lost one of its brightest ornaments, Edgefield one of her most promising sons. While we deeply sympathise with the bereaved family, we trust their los is his eter nal gain. Let us submit to the will of Him who has power to give life, and power to take it away, know ing that- - Death is the common lot of all, Both young and old nmost die; And, like the leaves of autum, fall, And there forgotten lie. HIS TEACHER. Duzo, at her residence in Edgefield District, on the morning of the 13th inst., of dysentery, Mrs. NANCY WnATLEY, in the 84th year of her age. The subject of this notice attached herself to the Republican Church some forty-five years ago, and notwithstanding the affliction which it was her lot to suffer during the latter part of her life, she mani fested a meekness and resignation worthy of the deepest admiration. She has left behind sons and daughters, with numerous relatives and friends to mourn their irreparable loss. But those who mourn, should not mourn in vain, as their loss is her eternal gain. B.
