A DANCING MASTER AT LAST.
Attention is asked to the out standing circular of
Ma. Broos, Teacher of Dancing, who proposes to In
struct a class at this place forthwith. We have been
wishing and. publishing for just sbch an individual
some months past, and now hete he is. The oppor
tunity should not be neglected by those who think it
worth anything to their children, to acquire grace of
movement and ease of manners. Mtr. B. brings highly
satisfactory letters from pertons wh6 have tried him,
and for whose taste we can vouch.
Ma. B's School, we are requested to state, will
open on Saturday Morning next, at 10 o'clock, A. M.
instead of Thursday as advertised in his Circular.
OUR LAW COURT.
The Fall Term for Edgefield is in progress, his
Honor Judge O'NEALL pre-iding. On Monday a
great number of citizens were in attendance. The
Judge took immediate hold of the business before the
Court and is pushing cases on to their termination
with his accustomed promptitude and decision, There
has not been the usual amount of sueing, nor are there
many cases of importance to be tried.
THE GREAT SHOW.
The handbills and placards are up for the great
Southern Circus. Look out, all ye who love fun and
display! Wednesday, the 22nd instant, is the day.
Stand about, Mr. Merriman!
We have seen a remarkable piece of cloth, made
by a lady in the Dark Corner, of Rabbit-wool. It is
woven in superior style, and is of soft, full texture,
very stiong and very comfortable. It will go to the
State Fair and take a premium -we think.
THE SOUTHERN LIGHT.
The October number of this Magazine is a' excel
lent one, abounding in well-prepared original articles
and tasteful extracts. We congratulate Mr. WI ATL.EY
upon his accession of contributors and upon the gene
ral improvement of his columns. There is no mistak
ing the fact, that he has made rapid strides forward
since the issue of his first number. If his progressive
march for the next six months shall equal that of the
past six, his success will surely be placed beyond all
doubt. God speed our brother in his spirited and use
ful undertaking! May he meet an abundant reward
for his labors, in hundreds of good paying and reading
subscribers! He richly merits the patronage of a
liberal public; and we hope that public will co1-e
promptly to the aid of one who has proved himself
entirely equal to the task he has undertaken mainly
for the public good.
DEATH OF WV. R. TABER, Jr.
Our readers are already acquainted with the mel
anchtoly manner of this gentleman's death. On our
outside, will be found the correspondence connected
with the affir of honor which termin~tted in a manner
so fatal to himself and to the hopes of tise many friends.
He fell at the third fire, shot through the head ; and
expired, as we learn, almost immediately.
The universal expression of our community wa~s
one of deep regret and unaffected pain, upon learning
the truth of this most sad event. Many of us knew
Mr. TABER personally, and many more1ggg the
column. of the Charleston Mercury. His fall was to
us all, like the fall of a friend; and, far as we are
from imagining that blame cart be imputed to his gal
lant adversary, we yet drop the tear of sorrow over
the bier of the talented, the chivalrous deceased.
For one, we ha:ve scarcely words to express the shock
which this mouriffut intellhgence gave us. The Press
of the State has here lost one of its most brilliant ex
ponents, and the State itself one of tier best, truest
and most promising sons. H~e goes not unlamented to
his grave. No young man, we hesitate not to say,
has ever fallen in Sotth Carolina more regretted thtan
lie of whom we write this brief and inisuflicient tribiute.
Embalmed be his memory in the b -arts of his cotemn
OUR TRIP TO NINETY-SiX.
It was a deli ghtful one indeed. At eleven o'clock
A. M. on 'lThursday, we reached Fruit Hill, tsn nmile
above our Village, andI found the Edgefield firats,
Band already there arid in full blhast, awaiting the,
arrival of stragglers. Our Ihono rable Senator, Judge
BUTLEa, had happened to drop in at the manie lplacs
on his way up, aind they were playing for himt, whetn
we came in hearing, "ihe Old Folks at Ilome," a
great favorite by the way with the Judge. In a little
while we were all on the line of march, the oldt Senia

At STtnax's cool well, the cavaleade drew up toe
water and--never mind what else. Oil' again in
a trice. At Mr. TOst PAYNE's fence, beneath an
oak tree's brown shade, anothuer halt wvas called, anid
alt hands took out their respective contributions to
the general lunch, whicht was duly washed down by
some genial "Peach" kindly brought to us by the
hospitable owner of the premises. Again to the road.
In less than twenty minutes we had stoped one more,
this time in front of the magnificent residence of Mrs.
Baooxs, the mother of the man who thtrashed Suit
NEa and backed out BUaLIxoAMtE. Ihere, alter a
musical variety, a superb treat of generous liquors
awaited the party, which was appreciated to the fulL
by our thirsty men. At this point the Judge left us,
and the rest proceeded to their quarters for the night,
some with General DUNovANT, some with Major
ADDrsoN. In the evening, we serenaded South Caro
lina Baooxs, had a fine time of it, returned to our
lodgings late, slept soundly for five round hours, arose
refreshed, and prepared for the big day of which we
make mention elsewhere.
CHINESE SUGAR MILLET.
Mr. RICHARD PErIas, of Atlanta, Ga., has sent us
a sample of his syrup, made from the Chinese Sugar
Millet. It is rather peculiarly-tasted, but quite a pal
atable article. Mr. PETrls was induced to experi
ment with this Millet by the circumstance of his chiil
dren making the discovery that the cane of it was as
sweet as the genuine sugar-cane. A fter a trial of one
or two years, lhe pronounces the opinion that it will
prove to be a crop highly advantageous to Southern
farmers ; that it will not only enable them to make
their own molasses, but to manufacture also sugar for
ex port. The cost of making the syrup does not exceed
ten or fifteen cents per gallon. Now that sugar and
molasses are ranging at such egregious rates, would it
not be well for us all to turn our attention at once to
the Chinese Millet ? Next week, we will publish, in
fll, the Circular of Mr. Pz'rzas, in regard to this in
THE MATHKIS ROAD
Is assuredly one of the best roads in Edgefield Dis
trict. We drove over it, from PAYNE's to SrRaoru
ia's, last Friday night, in less than two hours (dis
tance 12 miles) without grazing a stump or hitting a
root. That Commissioner of Roads up there deserves
credit, for this much of his department at all events.
Some of the little drains across the road are too ab
rupt; but as a whole it is a pleasant way to travel
over. What a route for a railroad ! Who has ever
seen a ridge more exactly adapted to such a purpose ?
From Lost's to Greenwood, not a stream, not a valley.
Many years ago, we heard Mr. CALUoUN say that

to the contrary not-withstanding, we belelve that

THE RROOKB DIINER.'
The Dinner, given on Friday last in honor of our
Congressional Representative, was a complete success.
The number of persons present was variously estima
ted at from five to eight thousand. One gentleman,
who attended the King's Mountain Celebration, re
marked that he thought the crowd at '96 equal to the
one which assembled on that occasion; and this we
believe was put by some at ten thousand. The re
porters of the 3rd, however,agreed upon 6000 as a fair
The day was a bright and agreeable one, tihe place
selected for the dinner extensive and well-arranged,
the stand for speaking admirably located at the foot
of an inclined plain thoroughly shaded by a grove of
handsome oaks, the stand Itself amply and strongly
built, tire barbecue pita in the background skilfully
manned and managed, and every thing conducted
from the start in the most remarkable good order. This
indeed was kept up throughout the day; for down to
5 o'clock in the afternoon, we had not heard a drunk
en whoop, nor seen a drunken face.
By 10 o'clock almost all had arrived on the ground,
eager to witness the entire ceremonies of the occasion.
A little after that hour an avenue of human beings
was formed, from the '6 Hotel to the Stand, some
two hundred yards in length and from two to five thick
on either side. Th-ough this living street, Hon.
PaSTON S. Baooxs, arm in arm with Gov. ADAMs
and attended bya number of distinguished guests, ap
proached the platform at a 1 to 11, the whole cortege
preceded by the Edgefield Brass Band and directed
by Maj. Z. W. CARWILE, acting Chief Marshal of
the day. Thein came the rush of the vast multitude
towards the centre of attraction, and forthwith the
exercises and actings of the hour commenced in good
After a few appropriate introductory remarks by Dr.
CAIN, President of the Day, General SA31UELI Mc
GOWAN advanced to the desk and delivered, in a most
impressive manner, the Oration the Committee.of Ar
ratrgements had devolved upon him. It was altogeth
er the happiest effort we had ever heard from this gen
tleman, and produced a marked effect upon his im
mense audience. He spoke of the gratitude, so strong
ly manifested by the passing demonstration, as the
rightful meed'of a faithful representative. He drew a
distinction- between the personal compliment It oon.
veyed and its bearings as a solemn duty imposed upon
a spirited constituency. He ably sketched the history
of the Slavery agitation, in the course of which he
alluded in truly eloquent terms to the war which
brought us new territory from Mexico. During his
comments upon the Kansas-Nebraska bill, a voice from
the crowd exclaimed-" LAt us fight"--repeating the
expression several times with vehemence. le spoke
of the present Presidential struggle, and, in regard to
our duty in the matter, remarked--" While we shall
certainly cast our vote for BUCHANAN, as a worthy
standard-bearer of the sound democracy, we n"ill also
war to the knife against that mixed rabble of Free
monsters, Freesoilers, Free-negroes and Freebooters,
who would blast and blacken in ruir.s the fair fabric
of American Liberty."-This sentiment was warmly
received. General McGowAx further depicted the
SUMNER afliir in a manner at once feeling and graph
ic ; and, its conclusion, presented to Cot. Baooxs a
splendid golden goblet front the citizens of Abbeville,
a massive ,-ilver one from Laurens, and several sticks
, from other sources. Other test im:mrials were pretented
by other gentlemen. . We understand that a pair of
elegant duelling pistols were on the ground for the
Cot/s acceptante ; but this was manrrged in private.
After Gen. McGow.t's address and tihe presenta
tion of complimentaty gifts, Hon. P. S. Unootcs made
hisappearanct upon the front part of the platform,
andi wva' received wvithr shouts an'i' hnuzzasn of enthusi.
asric. Mutch affected by this unmnista keable manifs
tationm of a most heartfelt approbation, ihe began his
spe-cih rn words of gratitude whrichr' his dleep emotion
scarcely allowed him to exptress. But gradually warm

OUR TRUE COURSE.
A great issue in American polities is about to be
determined,-an issue with which the dearest rights I
and most valued interests of the Slaveholding States
are directly implicated. It is the issue between Justice
and Aggression, between the Constitution and a
Higher Law, betweeg Patriotism and Fanaticism,
between the South and the North. For many yearn
this issue has been forming itself into life. For many
years sagacious statesmen have warnedthe country
of its dangerous tendencies. Some have heeded these
premonitions; while with many they have been as
seed sown upon stony grotnd, soon trodden down I
and forgotten. But, heeded or not, that issue has gone I
on increasing in magnitude, until now its point of
culmination is nearli reached and its solution is at
Happily for the South, her people are at last awa
king to the nearness and importance of the struggle
that approaches. Throughout the length and breadth
of her borders, the alArm notes of her political senti
nels are sounding to the rally. From Virginia to
Texas, a mighty upheaving of her proud spirit is be
ing manifested. Old party distinctions are rapidly
merging themselves in the one great end of southern
saity. And the time has come, so long hoped for, In
which the hearts of our people are beating In unison
for the cause of Southern Rights.
Our true course, is to greet these indications of in.
creased affiliation among ourselves with joy, and to
foster:our southern friendships into a permanency
which nothing shall hereafter be able to shake. It is,
to bond our main enorgies to the important business
of Southern unanimity. It is, to shun home dissen
sions. It is, to look-4Ut, each Southern State upon
every other, with concern and regard. It is, to shape
our policy, each towards the other, in the spirit of
confiding brotherhood. It is, to beleive and to feel
that ne are one people linked by a common destiny,
and that we must survive or perish together. It is, to
sacrafice, each Southern State for the others, any pe
culiar political preferencesof minor consequence which
may have the effect of retarding the concentration of
Southern power in or out of the existant confederacy.
Mad indeed is the policy, that would counsel any
agitation in our Southern ranks likely - to distract the
minds of our people from that one great desideratum
upon which our common enfety depends; the mere
thorough cementing of those strong bonds of interest
and consangifinity which should (and will if properly
observed) make us as one man in thought, principle
Especially with us of South Carolina is it a duty,
not more solemn i itself tihan It is indispensable to
the success of our Southern 6atnse, to scan and scruti
nize our every step, our every demonstration, our eve
ry suggestion, with this most careful reference of each
one of them to the test of Southern npprohation. The
reputation at'aches to our State of being hot-headed
andl impetuous fur what she conceives to be her rights.
We have seen that, in acting otit those impulses on

THlE YORKVILLE ENQUIRlER.
Our cotemporary objects to our raising any new
hopes of the Union. Becaaso wve greeted the an
notncement that Direct Taxation was to become one
of the Democratic planks for the future, and that too
utder ite auspices of Qurra, the Engairer speaks
of us as a political sentimentalistjif not a faint.hearted
Secessionist. We take our pen simply to tell our
goodh brother. that we are neither thie one nor the
other. We are what the danugers of the day anal the
energencies of the counttry make us--a Sothtern
Democrat, willing to war with Southern Democrats
for the best we can get. Make us a palpable issue,
ad the Secessionist. of '52 (of whom we were one)
will not wvait for a lesson in prompt action from the
Yorkville Enuirer. But until such an isesue is pre
sented, we prefer to lay hol on every hope that arises
in the agitated political sea around us and to make
the most of it. If Reform can correct the abuses of
our Government, we hesitate not to say chat we still
prefer it to Disunion. And if this sentiment shall
chapce to jar upon the revolutionary chords of our
ctemporary's heart, we can only refer him for an
explanation to I lhe ardent love of Constitutional lib
erty which made us a South Carolina Secessionist in
'52, anal makes us a Southern Democrat in '56.
THE CAMIBRIDGE LANDS AND CROPS.
These elegant lads are certainly not doing them
selves justice this season in the article of cotton. We
call them elegant, because they are at once beautiful
nd fertile. Some one ham pointed them out as the
future garden-spot of South Carolina. We doubt not
their justifying the prediction if properly cared for.
The corn crop upon thent the present year is most
abundant ; and the small grain crop has been good.
Bt the cot ton, though large enough, is badly bolled
and cannot make anything like a full yield. The old
Cambridge country is certainly capable of greet things
fet; and we must believe it is now in the hands of
planters who will draw out thte full strength of Its re
sources. Deep culture, careful ditchting, skilful ma
nuring, and judiciouts treatment in the progress of
erop-making, would, we honestly believe, place it in
twenty years upon an equality with the red Marengo
lands of Alabama. We observed several old fields,
1leared long before the Revohution, again underfence
ad produclnghandsuuely saiIhouthelp. What would
they not do, if pushed ont to a higher excellence by
.tite nactical and uclentiflo annhiance=f sise ay

For the Advertiser.
MR. EDITOR: We do not object to any one, on
ecount of an honest difference of opinion with our
elves, in any particular whatever. We appreciate
mr friends none the less, because they do not agree
vith us in every thing. All men have the right of
hinking and acting for themselves, in an honost
iiinner, and hence, we would not fall out with
hose who honestly differ with us in opinion, as it
egards a division of our District; but we do, in
he most positive terms, reject those nilk and
Nater characters, who have no decision of character
Nhatever, but are continually fluctuathig and ohang
ng, to suit surrounding circumstances, and to so
.omplish some demoniacal purpose in the destrue
Ion of others. A writer, of the milk and water
.lass, no doubt, in a recent number of the Adver
iser, has charged the whole Saluda regiment of
insincerity in the Division movement; whose mani
rest design is to sever the Division party, and, if
possible, to throw discord and confusion into our
ivhole.party. We pity the man-and treat hin, with
that contempt he deserves--that would openly
harge upon the whole Saluda regiment a thing that
every one knows to be false. It is known, and
needs no proof, that wo are fully identified with the
people of the lower extremities of the District, who
esiro a Court House at Aiken, in the division pro
ject. Our memorial fully demonstrates this fact,
nd our plan of division, as published, corroborates
the same. We have even been willing to unIte
with the upper and lower extremities, in the Dis
trict, in the division movement always leaving old
Edgefield an ordinary District, and we pledge our
selves to our friends in the upper part of-the Dis
trict, to assist them, when desired, in what we be
lieve would greatly conduce to their happiness and
prosperity, namely: A District composed of the
lower part of Abbeville and upper part of Edgefield,
with a Court House near the centre. Edgefield,
Abbeville, and Barnwell, all should be divided, if
desired, for they are all too large to answer the pur
poses for which they were intended. Saludians re

LETTER FROM HON. J. M. MASON.
SELMA, Frederick Co., Va.,
%9th Sept., 1856.
Messrs. Arthur Simkins and others, Committee:
GENTLEFt.N: I have had the honor to receive your
letter of the 13th inst., inviting me, on behalf of the
constituents of Col. PRESTON S. Baooxs, to a dinner
to be given to him by thsem, on the 3rd of October
next, in " testimony of their complete endorsement of
his Congressional course."
It has been my good fortune to have enjoyed the
acquaintance of your able and justly honnred Repre
sentative, on terms both of social and political inter
course, from h~is entrance into the House of Represe
atives-and I knowv of none whose public career I
hold more worth~y tihe full and cordial approbation of
his constituents than Ihis.
lie has shown himself alike able and prompt to sus
tain tire rights and tire interests of his constituents in
delate and by vote ; or to vindicate in a different mode,
ad under circumstances of painful duty,ghle honor of
his friend. I would gladly, therefore,unmte with you,
were it in my power, in the testimonrial proposed by
his generous constituents ; but regret that tihe distance
which, separates us, and my engagements at home,
must forbid it.
Perhaps it may not be unacceptale, in closing this
letter, to say a fewv words to my fellow citizens of
Edgeield District, whom you represent, on the con
dition of the country.
None can mistake, or, in the Soth, can remain in
senible to the times that are upon us.
Thre issue (until now averted) hietween a numerical
majrity on thse one side, and sworn faith to a written
compact on the other, is about to be tried. TIhe
Sou thern, States represent tire minority, boths in States
a nd in people, on this issue. Not their property alone,
but their thonor and safety are at stake on the result;
for I look on the pending election of a President in
teresting chiefly to the South, as it will be a type of
otiiinin andl purposse at time North. Reason and argu
mnt are exaus nted-wC have, done wh~atever lay n ith,
us to bring thme majornity bac-k witin thre pate of conm
stitutional power ; and can now only await thre popu
Shomuld it tbe foundi to stand by, arnd to uph'.ld the
Comstitutionm, tihens we shmould on-e imore look forward
with coniidence atnd hsope to thse continuance of a
Union established ins mtutal andl patriotic sacrifices,
and savin~g its sanction in fraternal fasiths.
But in reverse of all this, should a dominant see
tionl vote, the directed to bring inrto powter, those
pledged in advance to break down thme harriers inter
posed bmy thre compact of federatiomn, for tihe security of
one sections against the other; then, in my calmest
judgment, but one course remains for time Sooth:
Immediate, absolute, and eternal separation. Better,
far better, to stand toward tihe Northern States as wve
stand to tire rest of th.. world-" Enemies in wvar, in
peace friends"-than to remain halting under a com
mon government, enemies, under the guise of peace,
or friends at war.
Again regretting, gentlemen, that I cannot be with
I am, wvith, great respect,

Greve not, bereaved parents, for your fondly
cherished babe is safely housed in heaven, and
swells the band of kindred spirits, that anxiously
await the hour when they can welcome you to the
joys of the paradise above.
"Life is a span, a fleeting hour
How soon the vapor flies!
Man is a tender, transient flower,
That e'en in blooming dies." '
DIED, on the 1st inst., Mr. OSBURNHOWLE,
son or EDWARD and ELIZABET HOWE, aged 19
years and about three months.
ie was a strict member of the Baptist Church.
A little more than a year ago he professed reli
gion at a protracted meeting, at Red Oak Church,
and joined the holy band, who, are making their
daily progress to that place which is prepared for
all who do God's will.
His death is lamentable indeed I He was in the
bloom of youth and a natural vigorous constitution,
of amiable disposition, possessing a flow of spirits
which bouyed him above and made him regardless
of most little vexatious incident to every one, and
which rendered him a pleasing and agreeable com
panion, and endeared him to all who knew him.
Possessing habits of the strictest sobriety, and In
defatigable in all the pursuits of life as a son,he was
always willing to obey the commands of his bereay
ed parents, and as a brother kind and af'ectionate.
He has gone in the morning of life to a prema
ture grave. He has closed his earthly career as It
were in its very commencement. He has been
taken by an All-wise providenee from the midst of
his affectionate relatives and companions, to the un
tried scenes of another world. He has been thus
out off as if to afford to his young associates a strik
ing example of the uncertainty of the fairest pros
pects and the sensibility of the most substantial
The writer of this notice was with him during
the greater portion of his illness. He was never
heard to murmur or complain, but endured his af
flictions with christian firmness.
His burial was attended by as large a concourse
of people as has ever been known in this vicinity
-conclusive evidence of the esteem in which he
was held by his associates.
We will conclude this token of respect, by re
marking that we are unable to do justice to the
memory of our departed friend ; that the recollec.
tion of him will ever be fresh in our memory; that
his death has produced a vacuum that can never be
" Yes! he sleeps in the land of his birth,
And calmly he rests beneath the cold earth;
Yet his memory's enshrined in each friendly heart,
Tis cherished so fondly that it will never part."

LAURA A. HUGHES, consort of DAVID 0
HUGIIES, aged 31 years and seven months.
The decensed united herself with the Baptisi
Church at Dry Creek, two years previous to hel

mont she honoured her religious profession. At
though she laboured for some length of time previoun
to her death under the effects of that disease, mos
tatal to the human race viz: Consumption, yet oh
bore it with Christian fortitude, even without
murmur; and a little while before her spirit tool
its final exit from earth she addressed her littl<
daughter thtus: " Daughteor, your Ma is dying
soon you'll have no mother;" and also to her Ia
mnenting husband, " Weep not for me, fur I arl
going to be happy."
