JvDE i tidLE iT CINCINNATICON
We think the strictures of some of the press
upon the late letter of our highly respected
Senator, are uncalled for, harrh and unmerited.
We can see no inconsisteney in that document,
which plainly expresses his own opinion as
against the policy of the Convention proposed
at Cincinnati, and gives the reasons for that
opinion. In consideration, however, of the ap
parent intention of the people of a majority of
the several districts of the State to send dele
gates to that Conventioit, as seemed to be in
dicated by a very large majority of the local
presses, which usually reflect public Sentiment
our Senator very reasonably supposed that there
would be a representation of lie people in that
Convention, and he comes forward, in reply to
an inquiry as to his views on the subject. and
simply a'dvises that if the movement is to be
made, it should be in such at manner as to gnard
ir, as much as possible, against the objections
which exist to the measure. He very distinctly
says: "Putting the question aside, whether she
sh'ould be or not, let the State send her best
men," &. He does not give an opinion that
the State ought to be represented, but says if
the State is to be, as seemed very probabledfrom
the expression of opinion given, "send best
This is the amount of his offence, which his
brought down upon him, we think, very unjustly,
denunciation unworthy of South Carolinians
towards one who is battling fearlessly for us in
the Councils of the Confederacy-representing
efficiently South Carolina principles, and buldly
and fiercely grappling with the enemy of our
rights and interests. A more high-minded and
fearless representative no State possesses.
We surely shon'd not forget that the name of
Butler is identified with our history from its
etarliest periuds-connected with her annals in
gallant deeds, illustrating her military prowers
-long and favorably united with her judicial
history, and widely extended for excellent and
characteristic personal accomplishment. Our
'eator's Carolina spirit and faithful discharge
of duty have never been questioned, and we are
pained to see what we think unworthy criticism
heaped upon him while in the harness of our
service, representing proudly the character and
interests of the State.
Surely, if lhe did differ with us (In even this
que-,tion we may differ with a tolerant spirit
surely when the most vir:uous and ittelligent
and patriotic citizens differ as to a mere questionI
of policy, we may do so without ucrimotiy or
suspiciun of yielding to corrupting influences.
liere at home our best men hold opposite
opintions, and yet enjoy our confidence: why
should the representatires at Washington not
be allowed the same privilege., without deten
eintion or illiberal auspicion ?
1n11843 a Convenatiun met at Columbia of
represtentattives from every district in the State
t1i consult on the propriety of sending delegates
to a National Conventtiun. Our best men were
there-all uniting ini the object and in the policy.
They uoanimously agreed in uniting with the
Democratic party of other States "in the aip
- pointment of a General Convention," &c. Yet
a represenlative who now merely consents to a
meceting of the Demnoeratie party in Cotnventioni
is denounced as faithless to a public trust !
Tihat Conventioni unat imosly decided that
there was reaston in having such a representa
lion, and appointed comtmiltees in every district
to carry out the object.. Whether it were dune:
or ntot,'is the quest iun now. A specific object
was ini their view, and they were unanimous
in their expressiotn of the propriety of the
mteasure. Why shoutld not our representative
be allowed to suggest the sanme policy now, and
if carried out that the best men should bu se
lected to carry it out ? Where is there any
cause for eriticisti in such a suggestion ?
WVe think our Senator has been treated with
great injussice, and that personal predilections
of party shotuld not be allowed to inifuence
those wedded to any special policy to charge
upont a high-mintded and honorable man, motives
foreiL'n to his nature. We believe there is no
member of the United States Senate more true
to his State and to the South than the Hion. A.
We direct attention to the interesting letter of

Territory of Kansas to Congress, written to

WASHINGTON, March 18, 1856.
DEAR Srnt:-At the request of Hon. W. W.
Boyce, I take great pleasure in giving ye-u such
information in regard to Kansas as wtil be use
ful to persons emigrating to that country. In
regard to soil, Kansas is unsurpassed, producing
from sixty to eighty bushels of corn per acre;
twenty five to forty bushels of wheat per acre.
The finest oats I have ever seen, nothing platnted
in Kansats (except cotton) that does not, produce
more to the acre than the best lands of Tennes
Bbsides being a fine grain and grass country,
it is a part of the hemp region of the United
States. Hemp is decidedly the most profitable
crop now raised-, and the statistics will show that
the planters of Western Missouri are matking
more money per hand than is made in any othier
State in the U~nion. ft is nothijg uncommon
forarmer tW ny-thea'e hund4d dollars hir'e
for negro men per year. White men cannot be
hired for less tnan b26 diollarw *er month. In
addition to our advantages as an niricultnral
people we have a trade with New Mexico, Utah,
Oregon and California, amounting to several
millions of dollars per annum, besides, our India
trade amounts to more than one million per an
num. In addition the government for military
supplies expend:-a very large sum. Military
stores are sent out to all the posts of New Mex
ico and the Indian country, and to give you
some idea of the amount of transpottation re
quired for that department-c.ne firm last year
employed over seventeen hundred men, and
twelve oxen. Kansas is the starting point for
all emigrants going Wst of us. '1 was raised in
Tennessee, and have been in nearly every State
in the Union, and I say to you in all candor, that
I have never seen any country that pose.swes as
many advantages to new or old settlers as Kan.
sas. Our friends in Westera Aissouri-with
similar soil to Kansas, make from six to eight
hundred dollars a hand per annum. This will,
I have no doubt, seem large to you, but I assure
you it is strictly true.
The climate.of Kansas I regard as being far
better than in Tennessee; from ist September
until 1st March we have but little rain-mostly
clear, dry weather. The past winter has been,
though, colder than ever know before. Our
country I regard as very healthy; in some lo
calities chills and fever prevail to some extent
we have no pulmonary diseases in Kansas. In
regard to supplies you can procure anything you
may want in Missouri-if you get to Kansas by
May or June you can raise plenty of corn.
Our lands aro ready cleared-you can make
your location one day and commence farming
In conclusion permit me to thank you. and to
thank the people of South Carolina for the no
ble effort they are now making to assist us in
preventing the best country, in my opinion, in
the United States from falling into the hands of
Respectfully your ob't serv't.

A REMEDY FOR EPILEPSY.-The Normzamie
of. Rauen has the following curious statemenmt:
"Somue years ago a femaile was attacked wth
epilepsy in one of the streets of Oporto, and
several persnns collected round her. A bystand
er suddenly eried out, " Cover her face withI a
black silk handkerchief!" A man took off his
c-ravat and threw it over her faice. Strange to
say, her convulsions instantly eased and rising
to her feet, she thanked the person s airoiund and
walked away without assistatnc-e. One of the
spectators of this s:range scene wats a gentlenmn,
whoi afterwards became director of the institutes
of manufactures at Oporto; and wvhen a y'ear
ago onte of the pnpils nimed Vidal was attacked
wiih epilepsy, he recollected what he had seen.
He priaposed to the physici an of the establish
ment to try thme efftect of a black silk handker
chief thrown over the face-ntot, he said, thait
lie really bel~eved the remedy to be worth much,
but that it might be well to try it, as it could
do no harnt.
A black eravat was acer.rdingly thrown on
the face of Vidal-and the spasms ceased as if
by enchtantmenmt, and he soon after recovered.I
Twenty times after Vidal had other attacks, but
he always recovered by means of the samte
remedy." Thme Normandte, after relating these
facts, says it cannot explain whethe-r it is the
silk or the black color, or both, which puts an
end to tihe epileptic attacks ; but en auendant the
investigation of scientific men, it strongly re
commends the remedy.
MORE MtSERY.-As a retort to Northern in
termeddlers with our social institutions, who
never omit any opportunity to vilify Southern
people, and to show that misnery has no particu
lar home but is as wide spread as the human
race, we frequently copy accounts of scenes oif
distress and suffering from the New York Even
ing Post is of this description. The negro phil
anthropists spend thousands of dollars in rab
bing Sotnherinimett of their property, while tens
of thousands of poor white girls at the North,
are either drivemn in despair to profligacy and
vice, or sink unpitied into an unitimely grave.
"A girl named Mary Ann Car, nged 18, was
found in the street in a 'atate of insensibility last

wvas immediatly obtained. On being restored
to partial consciousness, she said that she had
determined on self destruction, as there was no

without a home, or anything to live for, and had
taken laudanum to etnd a life of suffering gmd
SENATOR BUTLE.-Mr Editor: In view of

it, and, moreover, you have but reflected the

successful. A fter all sorts of means had been
tried and fadied, it was stuggested that a simple
remedy used in India should be tried-that is, to

feet of the stubborn animal, the person holding
the end of the rope to ad vanes a few paces,
taking with him the horses' foot, when, as mat,

This distinguished gentleman is amongst us, gratify

Full of information, rich in imagination, abounding in
common sense and always guided by an elevated taste,
lie cannot fail to please, to delight, wherever he goes.
An adjourned Kansas meeting was held on Monday
last at this place; the proceeditigs appear In another
column. Munh interest was manifested and we yet
hope that our citizens %ill do something worthy of
themselves in this important matter.
Col. F. W. Picaz'sa spoke to the resolutions he
presented in the finest style of his effective oratory.
His speech was characterised by the ability of a finish
ed statesinan and the intependence of a true republican.
We ask especial attention to the striking views set
furth in his resolutions.
We should have been pleased with the opportunity
of publishing tiis eloquent efflart in extenso, but must
content ourself with a meagre synopsis. The distin
guished speaker traced our difficulties, the bitterness
or present iactions and the confusion in the country to
compromise*-compromises that had been made a sub
sttute for the constitution a hich was a cnmpact between
States. These Compromises were the work of mnjori
ties in Congress, an-t substituted the rule of discretion
in a majsr-ty fur the fixed law of the Constitution.
Any people would sink into imbecility who lived un
der the discretion of one man, or of many men, instead
of chartered law fixed by ascertained compacts. There
was the evil. It first commenced in the Ordinance o
'87, made by Virginia and the General Governmnent;
and then again was repeated in what is commonly
called the Missouri Compromise. le illustrated the
nature of that compromise. Next came the Tariff
compromise of 1833, which was violated shamelessly
by the act of '42, which destroyed the faith of parties
and demoralized publin virtue. Agnain, there was the
compromise admitaing C.difornia, by whicha act a no
ble territory laad beena seized below 38* 30, which ac
cording to the Mo. Compromise in spirit and gooud
faith belonged to thte South. It was thais infamous
measure that completed the debauch of the wihele
country. We bore It, and have sunak deeper into

to he driven from it without the spirit to appeal to -
arms and the God of Battles if need he., we shall
deserve our diegra ded destiny. If we refuse to stand
by the gallant, thae noble A TcttsoN, who has hung out
the hataner tupon the outer wall, then will the chain
be drawn closer and closer around us, and we shall
perish like mice in tnemphaitic gas tunder an exhausted
If the lowver house of Congress sanction all this bay
a deliberate Vote, the time will have passedi when we
cana appeal to the Constitution. That House hohlls the

impure motives have brought within the reach<
the young thousainds of books that wo~uld not reps

their dai'k deeds the names of virtite, lead us to ui

mot often idoes the niovelist, after making virtues<

..l~ mag-ine ti to cotip a mine of wealth, whic1
a lifetime could not exhaust; and he would not
dream that a small amount squandered daily would
soon empty the box. Now the light-mindedness
0 which I have spoken of serves to fortify us against
r that sound thought and mature reflection, which is
I essential to our spiritual inter.-st. If a enn1.1n ball
be dischargedamong the atoms floxnting in the air.
they *ould receive no injury bec.tute their lightness
becomes their safety, while a more solid bady wouled
r be torn to atoms. Thus it is with the light-minledness
e of the present age whieh shielel them against the im
a pressions of the gospel. It is for this reason that
the gospel has not near the success, all things cou
it sidered, whieb it had in earlier days, or which it
y has now in heathen nations. Th.- deficiency is net
d in the workmen, but inl thes mat--rial. Sheould we
not seek to remedy thes - ev.s? l6 it not our eluty
l as Christians to seek to train et tlte yting more
perfiectly. How 0ran we dl., th a ? Cn we in any
e course, meet with eor...sueee.-s than th.- S.S. would
ru-nish? There they would acquire a love fur good
books, for solid reading, and as this became stronger
n their I ve for the opposite would diminish.-There
e they would learn to value tine; and instead of
growing up for idleness, they would grow up for
Sabbath Schools would also tend to cheek the
spirit of insubordination which is common with the
a youth of the present age. It is not uncoenmon for
children to be the masters or the household. Such
. is the case with those not restrained in early youth.
0 If paternal and maternal authority is not, at that
time, exercised it soon comes to pass that father and
g mother must yield to tlte gratificatioan of their child
is ish inclinations ; and the result is that when twelve
or fifteen years of age, they desire to throw off pa
ternal restraint. They desire their own way-par.
d ents cannot please them-their counsel and advice
beeomeis irksome, and growing up unrestrained they
soon become wiser than parents or teachers; and
e when sent from home, fer edueation, they are fitted
fear disloyalty and rebAlion. It would be needless
for me to prove that the first men of our country
have ever been, and now are those who have been
brought up under rigid discipline. Discipline is, in
fact, an essential part of education, and yet it is sad
r ly neglected in the present age. Now, every refor
y mation must be base I upon moral principle, these
a principles mu: t be understood and enforced as a rule
-e of action, and this may be best accomplished in the
,, Sabbath School. Our youth must be taught to un
derstand the principles of the bible; then, when the
e present generation siall pass away, they may tafely
e coulide the interests of Church and state to the
e and, of those who will be their successors.
But itt spite of my multum in parvo efforts, I am
becoming too lengthy. I certainly did intend to
close my subject with this number, and not to tress.
s pas upon your time annd that of your readers. But
I know the subject is imtportant, and I am interested
in it. I des4ign noticing the expediency of Sabbath
er Schools in the country. and then to elose with some
direct remarks to parent-;. I desire to help on this
noble c tuse, and had hoped to incite others to lend
d it a helping hand. This cause deserves something.
r however little it may be, from me. And I have
writen, relying upon the anaxim " Qui facit per
alterum, facit per se." But it matters nothing by
whom this wvork is perfoermedl, so it is done. If your
kindness will indulge me, I shall endenaver to eon
elude thtis subject next week.

CMa Earrott: A Kansas meeting was held at the

on Saturday the fifth of April. The day was pro.
epitious, the bright sunshinte being tempered by a
ifbracing breeze from the gelid North. The "eitizen

1, together with the spectators, formned a considerable
"S auditory for the young gentleamen that had been
ittvited to addlress the meetitng. Messrs. al. W.

gentleman first namedl beintg introduced to the as
o~tieno ac oeeouneadcmrhnsemblage by Captan Norris, preeceeded to deliver an
et siveness. lIe gave a lucid exposition of the causes,
D which have led to the presentt exe'tement and agita
tion in reference to affairs in Kansas. A nd so logi

ing material aid to thoste " Berder Ruffians," who
are neow struggling nobely and manfu'ly to transplant
our peculiar Southern Inastitua ion to the fertile plains
of Kasas, that the cloase of his speech was followed

gand one whlicha must ever be grateful to every true
eorator. We pr'ediet for Mr. Gar a brillianat future.
Alr. TnELLxAx spoke with thte ease, dignity and
nability of otne who is perfeetly at home on the dus
*n tinge. This ge.ntlematn is tevide~ntly versed itt the
r "Science tar Slan," and righat skallfully does he touch
those secret springs of the human heart which opeen
ethe way for the reception of whatever pritnciples he
a may wish tee inculcate. Ii argument, going to show
ethat every poor mnan has ian interest in African
slavery and by contse'quence, at interest in thec set
tlemnent uf Kansas by a pro-slavery populaiee, was
oril, ntural, and most poawerfully convincing.
Mlr. TIL~tstax elucidated several other poeints witha
11no little acutnean and ingenuity. In shirt, he said
so mnany good thitngs, that the peeople were nearly
all the time either smiling, or nudging each other
.in token of approbatien. Monecy to a con.iderable
amoutat was subscribed and patid to thec Sub Comn

death has occauioned a void in many hearts. Se,
far as the writer's knowledge extends, of. her it.
may with truth be said
" None knew her but to love her,
None named her but to praise."
In addition to her natural endowments of mind'
and heart, she enjoyed the sanctifying influences of'
the Hioly Ghost, which heightened every grace..
She had c nsecrated herself to Christ, and openly
" confessed hi in before men," and experienced his
faithrulness to his promise. While passing " throughi
the valley of the shadow of death," and throughout
hter illness. lhe was with her, to cheer and support;
her by his grace and spirit. A short time, before,
shte became insensible, she declared thaat Jesus was.
"near and precious" to her, and 'with childliao
trust committed herself to him, for life or for death..
Wiule thena her bereaved relatives and friends deep-.
ly mourn their own loss, they " sorrow tdot, even es
others whaich have no haope,"~ for thtey have the
joyfu! assurance that to her " to die was gain," To.
the Chaurch of which she was a member, and to the
writer she is indeed a loss.. In the Sunday,~Sehool,
at the Prayer Meeting, and in .the house of God,
her seat was rarely vacant, and she ever esteemed
it a privilege to be employed in .the service of hee
Redeemer, and in doing good to her -fellowmen..
But she is noat, for GodI took her. Her split has
returned to " Godswho gave it,," an4d she nowsep.'* -

From which none ever wakes to weep
A calm and undeisturbed repose,

That death has lost hais venomed sting.
Asleep in Jesus! peaceful rest,
