The greatest gallantry was displayed on both

This event caused a great buoyancy in public
feeling in England, and caused a slight rise in

On the day the steamer sailed, a despatch
was received from Lord Raglan, dated the day

attacked and carried the famous Mamelon and
White Tower batteries!

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
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

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

' 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

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

the land, by the voice of the many-tongued
presses of the State. By order of the Green

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
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.
-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

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.
-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.

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.
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.
