TiE T E STUDENTI.
FROM THE ZIaMAN. - "Drei munt're Bursehen sassen gemuthlich bei dea wine Und Schenkiten ib gar waker in thre glasser ein." I. Three jovial students, merrily, were seated o'erhe cup, And ever, still more stoutly, they filled thefkass up; Then spoke the first: " A bumper, boys, of Rhine. wine's golde wealth! I have at %e a sweetheart dear., come, let us drink her bealdi Dark.eyed is she, and ebon-haired, and slender as the fir; With glowing lips whose nectar daw I often stole from her." Then clink'd the ringing glasses and gave a joy os blaig, And like a song of triumph the clear vibrations rang. II. ,'And f;o16poce the second,"~I slI knowa lass, With whom, right often, sportively the rapid hours I pagd. Brown-eyed is.she, and brown her locks, no fawn ere stepped so light; And clear her voice as cloister-belle upon amountain's height." Then clink'd the ringing glasses,and rose amirth ful clang, Like jybelt chimes of victory -the clear vibra tions rang. " Hark!" cried the first, with sparkling eye, " these happy omens show Our sweethearts still think of us, and of our kisses' glow." " I, too," the third said, bashfully, " a gentle maid adore, We love each other tenderly, and shall for evermore. Blue-eyed she is, and Aiaen-haired, all mildness, love, and grace ; But, ah! I cannot picture it, that angel form and face." Then clash'd the glasses jarringly, the third's as sunder sprang; A cry of grief! long echoing and piercing wasthe clang. iv. The first two started up amazed, but, bowing down his head, The youngest, weeping bitterly, a show'r of sorrow shed ; And that same hour was tolling, in a distant home stead dell, A spirit's heav'nward welcome-the solemn funeral bell. But one, late peerless, heeded not the sacred choral now, For slumbered still and peacefully that angel form and brow. The mild blue eyes, like stars, had set in Death's mys terious wave, And through the faen hair was wreathed a garland for the grave. Suaaaocl. LATE NBW5TROM EUE0PE.

SERioUs AFFaAT.-The Columbtum Times learns that in Camden, S. C., an affray took place between W. F. Clyburn, Esq., Clerk of the Court of Camden, and a Mr. John Love. Mr. Cly burn drew a revolver and shot Mr. Love, the ball taking effect in the thigh. Mr. C. then retired to the street, and Mr. Love's brother being p resent, procured a loaded gun, which was at hand, and discharged the contents at Mr. Cly burn' ahead, shooting off his hat and slightly grazing his scalp. Parties then interfered and separated the combatants. DEATH or REV. J. A. SHANKL.TN.--The Char. Jeaton Courier, of yesterday, announces the death, by yellow fever, of the Rev. J. A. Shank lin, late pastor of St. Peter's Church, in that city, and the senior of the editorial committee in charge of the. Southern Episcopalian. He was a native of Pendleton District, S. C., and commenced his pastoral labors in Macon. MELANCHoL.T DEATH OF F. G. Boso-This gentleman, formerly a citizen of Union district, South Carolina, but latterly a resident of Mis sissippi, passed through Augusta on Saturday afternoon last, with six or seven servants. At Atlanta he expested to meet a servant that he had directed to be seat there from Columbus, but in consequence of the servant not being at Atlanta, he took the West Point train at four o'clock on Sunday morning, and started for Co. Iambus. About a mile from Atlanta, from some cause not yet known, he was thrown from the train, and was.evid ntly so seriously insured as to be unable to get from the track. 'The Macon cars, leaving Atlanta one hour after the depar ture of the former, and the engineer not discov ering the body in time to stop the train, passed over Mr. Bobo's body, and mangled him dread. fully. He immediately expired. The body of Mr. Bobo was taken back to At lanta, and a coroner's inquest held, but we did not hear the verdict of the jury in the case. [ Augusta Constitutionzalist.

Hon. P. S. BRoors is nominated as our next Con gress-man. His friends are his constituenlt. Let the vote be general. THE DINNER. The great dinner to Col. BRoors, it will be sren, is positively fixed for the 3rd October. By reference to the lists of the several committees on another column, some idea may be had of the extent of the affair. It is hoped that the outstanding subser iption rolls will be speedily Pent in, well filled with names and figures. Edgefield should bear the principal share of the ex. penses of this interesting occasion. She should claim it'as her right to do so, et it not be said that other Districts are more ready to do honor to her distinguish. ed son than is she. Abbeville .is moving with spirit. So are the other Districts of the 4th. It is time now that the funds were in hand. We trust there will he no delay on the part of the Edgefield Committee in this matter. We know there will not be, unless from an idea that there is time enough. But the day is fast approaching. Every man, woman and child in the State are invited. The arrangements should all be completed immediately. Hence, the funds should be sent up at once. Let all be liberal. Letevery purse string be loosened. Let the dinner be in every sense a great one. An immense crowd will be there. Many distinguished men are expected. Let everthing be ready on the most ample scale. Up, gentlemen of Edgefield, and see that it be allright. Surely another word is unnecessary. BRASS BAND, ATTENTION I We are informed that the offer of the Edgefield Brass Band is very thankfully accepted for the B RooKs Dinner. The gentlemen composing it will therefore hold themselves in readiness, as now they will be depended upon. Nothing preventing, we will go along with the boys and serenade the country the night before. There is one young lady up there we should like to give a round. At all events we'll be on hand every thing in trim, bright and early Friday morning; and if we don't do our devoir in true old Edgefield style, it will not be because we don't wish to, but because we -, no we won't say " can't," because we can. The Band must excuse us in the use of the word " we" here. All of us belong to the pir,ey-woods and the term comes natural under the circumstances. iAJOR PERRY AND OUR KANSAS EM GRANTS. A communication appears in the Laurensville Ber aid, signed by a number of Kansas emigrants, and dated " Delaware City, K. T., Aug. 12, 1858," which the Edgefield papers are requested to publish. We decline to do so, because it is a bitter personal attack, the cause of which we are entirely unacquainted with. It is assumed on the authority of a letter written by some one (name not given) that Maj. PzaaR has been making " wholesale and public charges" against the South Carolina emigrants in Kansas-that he has salled them the " scrapings of the State," &c. We must be allowed to doubt the grounds of this informa. tion until it is made authoritative by the appearance of a responsible same or names. Even then, we should act upon the antto-audi alteram partem. It is very possible that Maj. Pgartv's language hat either been misquoted or misinterpreted by the persor who sent ont to Kansas the offensive information upor which the card of the Kansas emigrants proceeds. That gentleman, if such be the case, will correct the statement and set himself right in the matter imme diately. We sincerely hope that such will he the te sult. At all events, until we see and know more aboul -it we feel that common fairness dictates to us al -least a postponement of the publication requested. CAMP-MIEETINIG AND ASSOCIATION. t Sunday last was a great day in Edgefleld-a Math Iodist camp-meetinig on one side and a Baptist associa tion on the other. Large crowds were in attendance act botbplpaces, an4A-sed.dtouliroO!~4pelilA anid all was harmony and satisfaction. These occa lions, besides their religious benefits, serve as pleasmn1 reunaions for the people and tend to foster friendlie feelings between different neighborhood. THE EDGEFIELD EXHIBITION. We trust our farmers and stock-raisers will not for. get that Saturday of the 2nd week of the approach ing Court is agreed upon as the day for exhibiting agricul tural products, select domestic animals, fruits, flowers, and all that sort of thing, in the enclosure upon the public square of this place. If every one connected with the District~ociety would briung the hest he has, the display would doubtless be a good one. But all are invited, without reference to the Society, rall who have anything whatever to exhibit. And if all would determine to make a showing, we shouid'nt wonder if a sight woutd be presented at Edgefield C. H., such as our folks have never seen before. There's nothing like trying. Come In, come in, and let's have a med ley show. We can then see whether we have any thing that will do to send over to the State Fair. THEATRICAL, At last it has happened to us in Edgifield, that we can talk of "~ things theatrical" as occurrnng, or likely to occur, in our very midst. The critic of the Adver ser run. his fingers through ihis hair, adjusts his col lar, straitens his back and stiflens his upper lip at the bare idea. Yes! the Edgefield Lyceum is a'. fixed fact ;' the scene-painter has completed his job, wood scene, gardenscene, parlor-scene, kitchen-scene, side-scenes and all; the stage is ready with allits paraphernalia ; the " LADY OF Lvons"is in course of actual rehearsal, and on the 1st night of October (nothing preventingt the bell will tingle, the curtain will rise and the play prceed.-But, badinage aside, we really congratulate our citizens that arrangements are finished for giving them a series of dramatic entertainments during the coming winter. The first of these will come off in a few weeks, when the public will have the opportuni ty of patronising an amateur company whose efforts will be " to please and grow popular." When we say that this company is actuated by the desire of ad ding to the cheerfulness, the vitality and the conse quent prosperity of our flttl town, we have said enough to ensure the support and countenance of all but the ' crab claws' of our community. That they wil succeed, we have no doubt. But it is important that all hands help to " shove the boat from shore." Therefore, we say in advance to the good people of Edgeleld-" prepare all of you to honor their opening night with your presence--ill their sails at the outset, and the Lyceum will dance over the waves like a thing of life." THE YORK DISTRICT CHRONICLE, This is a new paper recently established at York ylle. The firt number now lies before us. Its pro prietor and editor, Mr. Teos. J1. ECCrLU, has been for some years connected with the press of our State. and s known as an energetic and Independent journalist. Success to him and his enterprise. POITER'S SPJRIT, The " Spirit of. the Times"-Uhe olud Spirit--has long been a favorite with the cis-alantic world. its popularity, without doubt, has been solely aturibatable to the fact, that it was guided by the. taste end im pelled by the esprit of W.

QUITMAX i to bring forward- this important question at the next i ession of Congress. It is also understood ~to be the oncerted policy of the Democratic party for the fu- a pre. Thiula indeed something fresh and cheering, U mid the general indications of corruption and revo- C ution. It rises like the olive-branch of hope, amid he wide waste of the troubled political sea around v is. We believe that it is the key of our safety; and P he prospect of its being applied in the right way is S ,vel calculated to fill the hearts of all good patriots v ith exultation. We hail it as theharbinger of better a lays, of days when the Republic shall be reinstated ipon the sound simplicity. of its beginnings, when Bribery arid Swindling shall be driven from the high places of public authority, and in their stead Honesty mnd Integrity shall once more prevail. Now, noto let the true men of America bend to the task of crushing Black Republicanism and ensuring the triumph of the great Democratic school. Now, freemen of the South nd patriots of the North, bnckle on your armor anew-burnish your weapons afresh-and make one, glorious charge for the ascendency of right principles. A new object to live for has arisen in the proposition here suggested-a new reason to stand by " the pil lars of the temple of our liberties." Direct Taxation ! It is the consummation that can restore our govern ment to health and purity. It is the measure that can work out the complete redemption of the South in the Union. It is the principle that can establish an equal ity of rights and privileges from one end of the coun try to the other. It is the true genius of republicanism as understood by the immortal founders of this Con federacy. Let the- old banner of our fathers float aloft with the motto re-emblazoned upon its folds. Let the trumpeters of Truth and the Constitution an nounce the inauguration of the new issue. The ghosts of the departed great will hover around like an army in the sky to influence the result. The Spirit that ruleth all things will move upon the hearts of our people. And a new day, a new era will dawn upon the cause of American Liberty. Such and so import ant do we hold this great measure to be in its probable, aye, almost certain eff ets. A GEM. The attention of the lovers of genuine poetry is di rected to a piece from the German, upon the 1st col umn of this page, entitled " The Three Students." It is seldom we see so touching a fancy given in so beautiful a manner. In this peculiar style of roman tic imagining, the Germans are certainly ahead of the world. We pluck the piece from a copy of the KiL. kenny Journal which chance has wafted under our bow. As such waifs do not come along every day, we at once detain it for the gratification of our heart and-soul readers ; and of such we have a handsome number if we do not read then very incorrectly. By the way, where are our poetical friends! Can none of them lift up the voice of poesy and pen an effusion for the old Adwertiser ? Take pity on us, friends. We grow prosy without your aid. Read "The Three Students," and be inspired. BY THE QUART. I Sperrits' can again be had at Edgefield C. H. by the quart!! (How many cheers!) The Council so determined a week or two since, and the ' quarts' are here already. Mr. LzaG, the licentiate, arrived from Charleston the last of last week, with a full supply of excellent liquors, cordials, and fermented drinks, all of which he will advertise constantly. Now you can get a 'drap o' the craythur' without buying 3 gallons. N-w, too, you can get something good-by paying for it. The great surmIse amongst us is, whether there will be more or less liquor drunk in town now than heretofore. That's the question, and its one which time alone can solve. We incline to the opinion that if more be drunk-no, if less be sold, there will be a vast deal of-- how's that! t, yes-if ' sperrits' are less drunk in gallons, it will be pretty much the case in ite long run that quarts will come to be where were we1 uha, ah, yes, yes-the quarts would be on an equality with the gallons if the gallons hang the gallons and quarts both. We'll form our conclusion on the subject another time. HON. A. G. MAGRATH. Wa are pleased to see that this distinguished gen him out as one eminently suited to that position at this particular crisis. Of course there are other and younger gentlemen in Charleston who would do honor to the place, but no good, perhaps much harm, would result from an excited and distracting canvass in any part of our State at this time; and such, we take it, would have been the case in Charleston had several younger gentlemen taken the field in opposition to each oilher. As it is, we presume Judge MACATI-r will be elected without either excitement or division. Cer tain it is, that few men In that Congressional District would be so entirely acceptable to the State at large. In the language of a correspondent of the Evening News, he is one " whose blade will flash Murat-like in the van during the coming strife for the cause of SOUTIERN RIGIITS." Neither will his zeal lack the tempering of an elevated forecast or the chasten. ing of a high courtesy. TEMIPERANCE AND THE CHURCHES. Certain congregations in Greenville district (Blaptist, we believe) have resolved to make tee-totalism a test of church membership. .In other words, they are changing the church of Christ from what it was in the days of the apostles into a sort of Seligio-Temper ance Society. Of course these Christians are perfect ly honest and serious in what they do. Yet lookers. on-ata-distance cannot be censured for both thinking and saying that they are rnisguided by an unenlight ened zeal. In the North, this thing has been pretty thoroughly canvassed, and has been found to be but a broken cistern that will hold no wvater. To such as beleive that Temperance is to be advanced either by church laws or civil legislation, we commend the fol lowing extract from a late newspaper letter, which seems to be ent irely authentic: PnrI.Antr.rnrIA, Aug. 31, 1858. Doctor Chambers, the great gun of temperance in this city, came out openly in his pulpit and made con fession to his congregation that he and his fellow-cler gymen had been in error and done wrong in leaving their proper field of usefulness, as preachers of the gospel, and seeking to reform the world by legiulatiun, and the- use of othier means than the eachmng. of Christ and the Apostle.. (' We have all gone astray," said he ; " we atinisters of the gospel, I mean ; we have not done our duty as clergymen ; we have tried to re form the world with ourirm.s; we It;v. neglected our calling and gone over to the world and sought to make men better by worldly means, and offering worldly inducements: and now we must come back ; we must zme back to our places;t we must preach the gospel, and nothing else, or our people will be lost. I for one, am determined to come right back here to thIs sacred desk and this sacred book, and teach and preach what ifind here, and nothing else; and my fellow christians, I ask you to come beck, I appeal. I implore you to come back here to this book, so Christ, and help me by your prayers and your example to reform our own people, and to do itby the teaching of thud1ol gospel" THE STATE AGRICULTURAL PAIR. It should be borne in mind, that our first State Agricultural Fair takes place early in November. It( is hoped, on all sides, that the occasion will be one of very considerable interest. To make It so beyond all avil, every one of us (who can) should strive to ex- j tibit something or other of the skill or excellence that ~ ertaineth to our respective pursuits. The farmers of louth Carolina are especially called upon to carry up pecimens of their produce, their stock, their imple ents of huslbandry, &c. The artisans of South Caro ia should not be bapckward in displaying the evi lences of their handicraft; for they too are invited to his field of competitIon. Neithershould'the ladies of b South Carolna fail to sesd in their quilts, their em roideries and the like.

He is king them under the 5th ribs at every turn. He says hey have no right to -Irust in Providence, as Provi ]nce is clearly agairt them. The only two men they ever elevated to the Presidential chair (Harrison md Taylor) were killed off by Providence. Bat in pite of their hopeless ease in the present canvass, they re still grimly hanging on for the chances. Says the Corner Stone: " They 6e something like the fellow who, when playing a gne of backgammon and had got of but two of his nb, his opponent had borne off all but one, and it wat his throw, when a by-stander remarked to the man voiowas about to be beaten, that he had as well give it * "No," said he, " I shan't do it, for he may die re he throws."

EDIVoR : I thank you for past favors, and beg continuation of your lenity and patronage, in the ublication of a few more remarks in your paper. As RiCuARD" has gone into his cell, like a frightened nail, I do not wish to disturb his repose, by adding iis as a rejoinder to his last piece. If he is a sane ian, I hope he will do better and improve every day a liven, but if he is really a distracted man, as some eem to think lie is, I really pity him. In his wan ering from the moon to the rain bow, and through he heavens and the earth, lie has failed to produce e argument destructive to division; but has touch. ,d on a point that deserves our attention, and that is, hat we have no right to a division of our District, >ecause lie supposes us to be in the majority, a thing hich we do not believe, but which we will admit or argument's sake. Nothing can be more absurd or neonsistent, than to assert that a majority should ule. A majority is quite as apt to be wrong as a ainority, and even more so, and the history of man lully establishes this fact. It but one man in the Norld was just and right, and all the rest were wrong, his one man should rule if any, because justice and quity should predominate whether with The many or the few. Our Fathers well knew, that it would not o to trust our Government in the hands of a majori ty; and hence, the constitution of the United States, which was intended as a permanent check upon all usurpations of the kind. What has shaken the very pillars of our liberty and caused the best government ever instituted by man to totter, but a dominant na jorty acting contrary to the principles of justice and equity and to the constitution of the United States? Mr. CALItfUN saw very clearly the insufficiency of justice, of Legislation and of the constitution to re strain a licentious majority in their attempts to sub vert our Government, and hence, his suggestion to have two Presidents instead of one-one at the North and tho other at the South, with the condition that both should agree in the confirming or passing of all laws enacted by Congress, and thus to check the growing power of a relentless majority at the North. This suggestion, I think a very good one, and the only one in my judgment, could it be effected, that could preserve our union. Tell me nothing about the justice of a majority ruling. There is no justice in it. The Abolitionists preach the very same doc. trine and would use it too if they had the power. A theocracy must be as pure as any Government can be on earth, and there certainly does exist a great resem blance in our Government, and that which God gave to his people in one particular, the people were to be governed by laws and commandments, and not by potentates or majorities under the Mosaic laws; and we rejoice to think that ours is a similar government in those particulars. Moses I think will be acknowl edged by all as one of our greatest lanv givers, he having the advantage of others, In his being divinely inspired. In all Moses' laws we see nothing that would indi. cate that a majority should rule. Laws and certairi penalties annexed to them, were enacted and the 0nly rulers were the agents to carry those laws into effect and the whole object of those laws seems to huave been, not only to protect the rights of men in theil persons and property, but also in a very especial man ner, to protect the weak against the strong, the feu against the many ; and this certainly was the objec of our constitution and our laws; however much thei may have failed in accomplishing the contemilate' object. Except in elections we see nothitg in ou constitution that favors a bare majority ruling, bo to the very reverse, we see strong cheeks upon ti majurtv and would toGod ni,~ r muhsrng majority. Even two thirds of all, are found to be to small a number to alter or change our Government it giving entirely too much power to the many to op press the few. Though we believe a majority amount ing to two thirds o: all the people, is not as large a it should be to cause a change in government, anc thus deprive the other one third of its rights, yet we as divisionists, profess to be law abiding men, andi two thirds of the men in Edgefield District, are fount to be anti-divisionists exclusive of the party indifferen1 to it we will submit to our hard fate and say no snore about it. WVe claim at least to be a respectable minority, anti consequently, our claims are not only just, lbut Legal; Iwe are States rights men, mud are assured that not only States, hut Districts and even communities, have their rights which should be regarded and attended to by Government. We maintain that we have am good a right according to our numbers, according to our locality, according to otur services and according to justice, as any people in the State, to a division and to a District and Court House suited to our abso lute necessities. It is said by some, that our ohjent. is to elect a few members to the Legislature and to stir up strifc among the people. We say in positive terms that this is false. We are surprised that any man that knows our situation can think so. We had al mot as well he without a District, without a Court House and without law, as in our condition, for in many instances we cannot avail ourselves of the ad vantages of either. I tim an old man, and I never expect to have an office and I know there are htun dreds like myself, that want the District divided pure ly for the good of the people. We are sorry then tat there should be two parties in the District. We do not desire this and we think that all good men who are acquainted with our condition will not oppose us, but will sympathise with us and help us to obtain our rights. JOSEPH! GRIFFITH. Fur the Adve-rtiser. Ma. EITvOn :-lt is generally believed in this District that Mr. GRF.GG, who is a candidate fur the [Legislature, is a northern moan, born anud bred. On his account mtany are reluctant to vote for him. It a bare justice to correct this error. I therefore send ou for publication the following extract from a short nemoir of Mr. GaF.GG, published ini "Do Bowv's leview," for March 1851, P. 348. It will be scen hat he was born in Virginia, and has never lived nyhere but in the South. A CAROLINIAN. We propose to give a brief sketch of the inei ots in the life of an individual who, although not ie earliest manufacturer of cotton cloth in Carolina, as the first in our estimation, who, by his sound udgment and knowledge of machinery, demonstra ed to the conviction of the inhabitants, that our outhern States wvere as well adapted for thte man facture of cotton as the most favored countries ithin Europe or America. WLLAM GREGG was born in Monongaliela coun , Virginia, in February 1800. His ancestors crc Quakers residing at Wilmington in Delaware. [is father during the Revolutionary war, took up -ms in behalf of his native country, and was among to troops who fought in defence of Charleston. [re he pas taken prisoner by the British, at the rrndr of the city ; whilst .on the road to Nine ix, with other prisoners, he managed to esgipe in t of our swamps, and found his way hack to his utive state. There ho married and returned to auth Carolipa, and settled in Newberry District. 'a subsequently re-moved to Monongehtela, in Vir nia, where the object of our present memoir was n. At the age of four years, his mother died, bich caused the separation of the family. He was iw placed with an uncle, Jacob Gregg, who resi d at Alexandria, D. C. He was a watch-maker 'trade, by which means he had accumulated a -go fortune. H~e also engaged largely in th~eman seture of spinning machinery. In 1810, Jacob regg re-moved to Georgia, taking his nephew withj m; here he erected one of the first cotton facto Whatley's Mill's,) midway between Monticello and Mdadison. The machinery was principally of hin >wn manufacture. During the continuance of the war the enterprise was successful, but the return of peace brought with it such a flood of foreign goods into the country, that nearly all the establishments f this kind were prostrated. The depreciation of property iuvested in manufacturing establishrents ruined the fortunes of Jacob Gregg, and he placed his nephew William, with one of his old friends in Lexington, Kentucky, to learn the trade of a watch maker. WILLIAm GREGG remained in Kentucky until 1821, when he went tolPetersburg, to perfect him self in his profession. In 1824, he established him self in bushiess in Columbia, S. C. By faithfulness and p'unetbality in his profession, he gained the confi dence of the community, and prospered in his busi ness, &c. &c. THE Turks Island Royal Standard, of the 16th August, says:-" The demand for salt has been increasing gradually for the last three weeks ; 38,989 bushels have been exported since our last report, being the largest quantity ship ped in any one week since our present season commenced. The price remains firm at 15e. Quantity on hand about 280,000 bushels. Ex port duty Je." DRoWNED.-During the prevalence of the last freshets in Rock Creek, we learn that a valuable negro man of Col. L. A. Breckham was drowned at Caldwell's Mill under the fol lowing circumstances. He had crossed the creek to see his wife and wishing to return home. applied to a gentleman at the mill to carry him across the pond in a batteau. The gentleman told him that it would be running too much risk, unless lie, the negro, could swim. He ;old the gentleman he could and they had nearly crossed when the paddle broke. The gentleman then told the negro to jump out and swim for life, but he replied he had never swam and knew nothing about it. He was carried over the dam and sunk to rise no more, while the gentleman got to land with great difficulty.-Chester Stand ard. NEW cotton is beginning to arrive freely at New Orleans. On Wednesday one boat brought 1385 bales. THE American Institute Fair, to be held at the Crystal Palace, will open on the 22d inst. KILLED 11 A CANNoN.-We learn that Mr. Seaborn Keith was killed by the premature discharge of a cannon at the Regimental Muster at Hunter's old Field, Pickens District, on the 9th inst. RACE HOUSES SoLD.-The Louisville Journal states that Mr. Alexander, of Woodford, Ken tucky, has purchased the celebrated race horse Lexington. He met Mr. Tenbroeck in England, and the purchase was made there. The price paid was $15,000. This is the highest price that was ever paid for any horse in the United State. It is also stated that he has sold Le compton to the same gentleman for $10,000. A NEW RELIGIOUs JoURNAL.-At a Confer ence of the Lutheran Church, which met at St. Paul's Church, in this district on Friday the 29th ult., a resolution was adopted to establish a re ligious Journal, more Southern in its sentiments than the Lutheran Observer published at Balti more, Md. The cause which has led to this step, was the severe strictures of the Observer on the conduct and course of Hon. P. S. Brooks in his difficulty with Sumner. We admire the spirit of our Lutheran friends, and ,hope they will be sustained in this new enterprise, not on ly by the entire Lutheran denomination South but also by the members of other Christian de. nominations.-Newberry Mirror. Fox K ANSAs I--A company of young men, so. Ibcr, steadfat and true, are being rased in this city for Kansas.

The Abolitionists ire in force, des. troying Southern property and murdering South. era men. We are defied to the contest; let us not restrain, but aid those who are willing te encounter it.-Mongo nery Adrertiser Sept. 6. DUEL.-A duel was fought on Fhida2y after noon, betw~een 4 and 5 o'clock, near Ferry, or miore properly, Washington P'oint, Norfolk coun ty, by two citizens. The card of Dr. Perkins, in the Daily Newvs, relative to a slanderous report, caused an individual, whose name we have not learned, to send a challenge to Dr. P., which was promptly accepted-the weapons chosen being broad swords, and the time and place as above mentioned. The parties, with their friends and a physician, secordingly repaired to a field not far from the village on the Point, anid a despe rate flht took place with heavy and keeni edged swords, which resulted in the injury of boith parties. Dr. P. received a deep and severe cut on his right arm, and dealt his antagonist a dread. lul gash in the face and on one arm, wounding him also in the abdomen. The injuries, we learn, are not of a serious nature ; and as medical aid was immediately obtained, the two combatants will probably be ready for another battle, if ne eessary, in a wveek or two, although it is quite probable they are well enough satisfied with the result of the bloody encounter.-Norfolk Argus. Our town seems quite enlivened by the daily arrival of Cadets for the Military Academy o1 Messrs. Coward & Jenkins. We are gratified at such evidences of their sungss, and trust that it will long continue, as commensurate with the ability and public spirit manifested. The new Barracks is not yet completed, but we presume iit will be but a few weeks ere the young soldiers arc turned into winter quarters."- Yorkrille Chronicle. INsANE.-3fr.

The grand jury of Cowveta, condemn, in their presentments, the practice of removing or " run ning off" negroes who have committed capital offences. So do we. Kossurm and his family are enjoying them selves at Ventnor, Isle of Wight. [He lives very handsomely, says a London writer. on the funds contributed in America for the "freedom of Hungary." He has lost all his influence with us, for his selfishness and hypocrisy have become too evident. and he is looked upon now as a po itical charlatan, who played a bold game for riches and won the stake. ig" Stephen Coma, a free negro has been de teeted in Mobile, Ala., in circulating abolition ocuments, and ordered to leave the city in two lays.

The deceased died very suddenly of a disease of the heart. She was a member of no church, but had lived for many years an exemplary life, and previous to her departure gave satisfactory evidence of her acceptance by the Savior, saying, a few moments before her death, " that she knew she was going to die ; but she was not afraid to meet death." She has left numerous relatives and friends to mourn her loss, but they enjoy this consolation, that their loss is her eternal gain. HER FatEND. DIED, in this District, on 30th July, Mrs. AMELIA DEEN, wife of Simon Deen, in the 37th year of her , age. Mrs. DEEN made a profession of her faith in the Savior, by uniting with the Baptist Church at Little Steven's Creek, when 14 years old. Although retired and unpretending, she lived a consistent christian, as evinced by an exhortation from her death bed to her distressed husband and chil dren, in which she spoke of a blessed immortality and met death not as the kings of terrors, but the road to endless joy.
