a card which the former publi..hed about the

compelled to return to Richmond. Mr. T. P.
Chesemian the second of Mr. Prior, publishes
the correspondence with a card, showing that
Mr. Botta postp.'ned the tinme later than was
necessary, and that the place of meeting was
known to many people not connected with the
affair, before it was made known to himself. He
says: - Being satisfied from these facts and
others any attempt to secure a hostile meeting
between Mr. B. B. Botts' and Mr. Pryor will be
thwarted by pers'ons not connected with thie
matter, but frietndly to-tho Hon. J. M. Botte, as

SPEECH OF HON. JOHN H. SAVAGE.
Our 4hanks are due to the member from Tennessee
for a copy of his manly speech upon Kansas matters.
An Edgefield subscriber also send. a copy of the same
with the request that we print it. But, as much as
wo like the speech and admire the taste which recom
mends it, we have to decline its publication at present;
several long extracts are on hand demanding our at
tention, which must appear first. If we find room
some other time, we will cheerfully lay Mr. SAvAGE's
speech before our readers.
GENERAL QUATTLEBAUM'S ADDRESS.
The proceedings at a dinner In Lexington, District
upon which occasion Gen. QUATrLZBAut delivered
the address of the day, are on file for publication and
will appear next week. The General's speeoh will
be read with Interest in Edgefield, containing (as it
doesi sundry allusions to the District.
THE COURT & JUDGE O'NEALL.
Our Court of Common Pleas progresses with unusu
al dispatch. Judge O'NEALL seems resolved to clear
the docket if possible. His energy and ability increase
with his gray hairs, and evidence him one of the first
Judicial Officers of his day. His Honor was born for
the Law, and would have adorned any bench in any
country. Now sixty-three years of age, he isstill unti
ring in the discharge of his onerous duties and more
than ever, faithful to the almost unerring dictates of
an enlightened judgment. A truer public servant,
South Carolina has c:ever had. He has won, and
wears with veteran propriety, the highest honors of
his calling. When we look upon his venerable mein
,nd frosted locks, it is with regret that we remember
any lightness of comment heretofore made upon his
chatacter and course by the press of his State. May
he be spared many years, still further to enstamp his
usefulness upon the legal annals of South Carolina!
Our Thespian Company have made a most success
ful beginning. Two representations of the "Lady of
Lyons" have sufficed to give the public confidence in
theirabilities to " act well their parts," at lead in
melodramas of that cips. They hope, after a while,
to show themselves'equal to all the requirements of the
Stage, whether in Farce, Comedy or Tragedy. They
richly deserve (and wil receive) a large and liberal en
couragement at the hands of their fellow-citizens of
Edgefield. Seeing that they are sparing no pains or
expense to give universal satisfaction, all friends of
refined amusement abould (and will) help them on to
a series of brilliant successes. The touching play of
"The Stranger" is to be given next, to be followed on
the same evening by " Born to God Luck," TraoNE
Poweza's favorite piece. From wvhat we know of the
cast in both of these plays, a treat may be anticipated.

on Saturday next, in thte Male Academy grounds on

lots are near, for the accomnodatiun of animals to be
exhibited. For the reception of domestic fabrics,
specimens of garden and field produce, &c., a suitable
department wIll be provided. All whto have anything
at all worth showing are earnestly invited to enter the
lists. If any funds are available, several premiums
will be awarded in the more prominent divisions of
the show. At all events, premiums or not, we hope
to haave a pleasant and useful day of it. May we not
predict that it will be the beginnmng of something good
amongst us I If all will come forward promptly and
spiritedly with whatever they may choose to bring, it
may lead to a really fine exhibition another time.

THE QUART LICENSE.
Ali have been ctrious to see how the quar t license
would work in our village ; and last week (the first of
Court) was no bad time to test it. At the outset we
thought the thing was going to prove something terri
be. On Monday and Tuesday, we observed more in
toxicated phtysiognomies than had appeared before our
visual organs for many a day. In fact there was a
' general drunk' prevailing. But on Wednesday the
signs negan to change, and by the close of the week
liquor seemed to he flowing again in its usual c-han
nes. Thes present week commenced pretty tmuch as
the preceding one; if anything, the whiskey freshot a
little higher. And still it rises. But it is the elections
that have caused this second overflow. After they are
dne with and Court is ended, perhaps we can estimate
the effeacts of the Quart Ordmnance.more correctly.
As matters stand, Liquor and License are certainly

. EDITORIAL RESIGNATION.
C. C. PucKZTT, Esqr., has sold the Abbeville Inde
pendent Press, to Messrs. W. A. Lu & Wx. HENRY
WiLsoN. In the last issue of his paper, the editor
takes his leave in terms of gracefulness and feeling.
After a warm recommendation of his successors, he
adds in conclusion:
" Profoundly grateful to my friends for their gener
ous encouragement to me heretofore, with feelings of
unmixed kindness towards those of the editorial pro
fession amongst whom it has been my pride to claim
an humble place, and with a devout prayer for the
peace, honur and safety of our common country, I re
sign my positiun into abler hands."
The Press of the State will most heartily reciprocate
the fraternal farewell of Mr. PUCKETT. We trust his
connection with the Brotherhood has been as useful
and profitable to himself, as it has been agreeable to
his readers and valued by his associates. We beg to
offer him at parting the best wishes of our heart, for
his future success and happiness.
To Messrs. LEE & Wir.soN, we extend, at once, our
greetings, and our sympathies in the arduous labors

would the hone-r of South Carolina be safer. In no

" THE SEASON AND ITS FRUITS."
The above appears among our list of paragraph-cap
tiotts for the current week ; and, althoughi evidently
not put there by outrself, w.e must adhere to the rule
and write up to it.
The season, then, is Atutumnt. (For anything poeti

poets from Chaucer to Thomson, inclusive. For its

What is there about Edgefield that attaches people
so strongly to the place ? Never a man or woman re
mains here for a twelv-emonth, that there does not
spring up in, his or her heart a desire so hang on, to
life's latter end. And if circumstances cotmpel them
to leave, we are sure to hear of their wishing and
praying to get back again. For instance, now, a
letter lies before tiA from one who left this village a
year or two ago, after having lived here a number of
years. lie sends us $5 for she Bsooxs Dinner and
the following sentiment to hack it: " A South Caro
lina Gentleman--the highest specimen of humanity."
He concludes by saying: " I intend moving back to
Old Edgefteld, choosing rather to weork for my daily
bread among gentlemen than remain where I am and
live tn ease upon the labor of others." And ttus is is
with almost every one who leaves the dear old Caro
lina State. The animus revertendi lurks in some
corner of his heart till death ends its pulsations.

A tall green sort of a well-dressed fellow, walked
into a Broadway saloon the other day, where they
were talking politics upon a high key, and stretching
himself tup to his full hteighit, exclaimed, in a loud
voice :'W Where are the Denmocrats? Show me a Dem
ocrat, gentlemen, and I'll show you a liar!l' In an
instant a man stood before the noisy ingtiirer, in a
warlike attitude, and exelaimedl: ' I am a Democrat,
Sir!' ' You are ?' ' Yes, Sir, I am!' 'Well, just
you step rounod the corner with me, and I'll shown you
a fellow who said I couldn't fid a Democrat in the

OUR VILhAGE THEATRICALS.
Ma. EDoToa :-It was my good fortune to be present
at the second presentation on the part of the " Ama
teur Thespian Corps " of Edgefield, of Bulwer's beau
tiful play of the " Lady of Lyonis or Love and Pride."
Thin play is founded on thte well known French tale,
entitled, " The Bellows-Mender," in which the main
incidents of the plot wilt be found ; but the author by
impressing htis genius upon its rude materials, has ren
dered it entirely his own, having made its identity
queite uncertain; he has polished the rough diamond
and adorned it with the richest pearls from the vast
cabintet of literatutre.
Long before the time for the play to commienc,
miight have been seen assembled in the spaciotts llall,
a fair representation of the talent, refinement, fashion,
thenm~y and wit of the entirc District--it being Court
week, many from all parts and sections were piresent.
The soft sweet music of "lBuhler's Band " from Au
gusta, was listened to with an enger ear, by the manay
lovers of harmonious melody, and it was well adapted
to prepare the'mnind and stimulate the feelings for the
proper reception of the renditiomn of thi' p~opular play.
At the anxiuusly awaited signal, the dark green cur
tain arose calmly and slowly, and revealed tu a crowd
ed and admiring audience, Mlademnoisella M. in the
character of " Pauline," languidly reclinting upon a
sofa ; Mrs. G. In " Madame Deschappelles'" se-ated ;
Master B. as " Marian," In rear of " Pauline," pla
cing thte rore " a little more to the left." The rare
personal beauty of these two ladies, heightenedl by their
rich and tnsteftully arranged costumes served to catch
the eye ; thte clear uilter toned voice of the one, and
the low soft flute-like "notes of the other felt in pleas
ing cadences upon the tympatnum of the ear; by their
ease and s'elf-possession, qttickly evincing, that they
had the proper conception of their parts. By their ex
traordlinary combmnation of the three unities, the
mind wasa completely captiv-ated and led to the irresis
tihble conclusion that "there was no such word as
fails "Ott their behalf. The fascinating beauty of
" Madme D." of whom was said,
"Beauity' prtrait becomes more prime,
Touched bythe mellowing hand of tinme,"
was only equalled by tat of " Pauline "-the lbe
witching coque-tte. Thtey thmus early became favorites,
and were throughout the play the cynosure of all eyes.
Dr. E. B. made his appearance in the difficult im
personation of " Besuseant," the gay beau of thec beau
ty of Lyons. He possesses many personal c'aaracter
istics, which aidl him to the successful renderinmg of
his part. Tall, commanding, handsome and graceful,
he assumed with much naturalness the feelings of a
disappointed suitor. Hlis earnest desire of revenge, hit
humiliation of pride, and amnbition-hais proud-bearing
and contemptously curved lip, conveyed well the idea
of one piqued at disappointment. In fact lhe looked,
the perfect embodiment of a regular philosophic wo
To Col. S. was assigned the role of " Col. Damas.'
This is one of my favorite characters, and well did the
Col. sustain it. lie acts, as he does every thing else,
par-excellence. He e xhibits upon the stage that uni
versality of genius that enables him to shine brilliant
ly in any sphere. His acting reminded me very mnuch
of that of Hackett. In the fourth and fiftha Acts, the
Col. can not be beaten.
Mr. L. B. as " Glai is" made some decided "hits.'
Hie too, possesses the advantage of floe personal appear
ance. His lively black eye and raven colored locks,
in addition to thte spirit and abandon of his acting,
won the admiration of many a beautiful lady.
I cannot pass on without giving my unqualified ap
proval of the " Landlord," by Mr. R. He played
most admirably-he acts with spirit and earnestness,
and improves rapidly.
I have now reached the third Scene, in 1st. Act,
in which C. W. S. Erq., in the character of the hern
of the play, " Claude Melnotle," makes his debut.
This gent leman posresses without doubt, rare histrion
ic talent. Hie yilayed toithe unanimous admiration el
all present. 1 had expedied much f'rom him from-hear
Ing that, for his own asiusement atnd gratIficatIon of
taste, he haid appeared ujon the regular boat ds of Au
gusta and Mexico. He treads the stege witha a proud
consciousness of his ability to s'ucceed despite all con
tingencies. I have navir witnessed some points that
he made, surpassed by any one. His acting Is i.
fonn.=raneMfa end annmriratand he nvr nstht
taste by over acting. His painting of the scene o
Lake Como, was well conceived and rendered.
"Mlonsieur Dechappelles," by Mr. L. He was dres
zed in elegant taste, his entire black suit became hin
most charmingly-lie acts an old man to perfection
despite of my knowledge that the trunk was modern
I was forced to think that the face was antique.
Again the fair mother and daughter make their up
pearance upon the stage. What breathless silence
You could hear a pin drop-Mrs. G. as 4 Madame D.1
begins with her fine voice, and each word is heard dis
tinctly at the farthest end of the house. Her play
ing in the 4th Act, in which the fan was used witt
such brilliant success, can never be forgotten. She
has a faultless phisique, her step graceful, her bearing
dignified, and her acting superb. The performance o
two parts, exhibits great readiness and versatility o
genius. All eyes are now fixed upon the beautifu
" Pauline," in the 2nd Act. She begins to reveal hei
nature. Without an effort she brings down the housa
in tumultuous applause, and by her unparallelled ac
ting, increased the intensity of the enthusiasm of thI
audience in eachsuccessive act. Iscarce know wheT
to admire her most, as the haughty coquette, or thI
subdued wife-in each she was so fascinating. Hov
vividly do I recollect that inimitable look at " Claude,'
in the 3rd Act. With what pleasure did I gaze upot
that miracle of female beauty, a full-head of hair, a
it hung in graceful folds upon the neck of the troublei
young bride. A pretty lady is never more beautiftu
than when in distress. Mfademoiselle Al., had man1
obstacles to contend with. She had to play in a Ian
guage not her own, to customs and tastes different fron
her first associations-but despite all this, how com
plate was her success. She is a lady of great accom
plishments and undoubted genius.
Looking on the play as a whole, we can conscien
tiously say, that we have seldom seen it equalled
The scenery was fine-the machinery excellent, ant
the management capital, tinder the experienced eye o
Mr. bl. The minor parts were all well performed;
and the music the delight of every one.
At the fall of the curtain in the fifth act, the dle
noument was pronounced to he a most happy one
and every body went home delighted, feeling the
they were under grateful obligations to the Corps, fo
the relief of the evening from the dull monotony an
tedium of village and country life.

Autumn hath unfurled its banner
Stained with carmine, green and gold;
Never did a fairy's sceptre
Mines of beauty thus unfold.
With a brilliant flush the evening
Doth incarnadine the sky,
While the sun his rays are streaming
O'er yon clouds of royal dye.
Rippling, murmuring, goes the brooklet
On its mossy pebbly way,
Like a wearied child it faulters
'Midst its dreamy, listless play.
How like life the changeful seasons
As they in their orbits roll!
Gihdled with a zone as varied
As the tropic to the pole.
Spring comes first in all its freshness,
Strewing every path with flowers ;
Like the fleeting cares of childhood .
Come anon its mists anid showers.
Summer time like sturdy manahood
High in purpose, strong in hope,
Faints not tho' with storms and tempests
ie must in hi's valor cope.
A utumn then with thought and feeling
Calmly reads the chiequered past;
Now it hatils the glad revealitig
Of the mercies o'er us east.
Mellow as old wine the bous,
Which are speeding on tjieir way ! 9
Quivering in their fleeting glory
Are they fading day by day.
Now the Winter is upon us,
Now the silver'd erown has come ;
And the good mnan meekly bending
Hieks him to his long sought home.
Frosts have blitedl fower and leaflet
Still the Sprinag once more will bloom;

LETTER FROM IION. JOHN McQUEEN.

Sept. 29th, 1856.

at Washington, with a recent excursion among a po

days at home, where [ find a large proportion of a

you, however, thus do honour to your Representativ<
who has triumphantly sustained and vindicated yet

your Representative at the right time, in the rigi
place, and in the right maner, administered to hit
an argument, the only kind in any judgment, that wi
now avail against impudent, arrogant and mad fanat
ism, that regards no truth, no right, no justice,
honour, no law or compact; And when the fairsbAe
fan..ial fry and reflame wase kindled uarddhil
at the hands of an unscrupulous majority, and the
shaft or personal insult was feebly attempted to be
hurled at him, he meet it with a firmness,and repelled
it with apromptness that would do honour toa Roman,
as they wellentitle him to the admiration of every one
who is at all endowed with true feelings of manliness;
the duty could have fallen in no better hands.
We have arrived at a period in the afiurs of this
Republic as portentous as it is trying and insulting
to the South, and those, even, who do not wish to,
may as well understand it. Abolition has loomedup
with a progress and rapidity, recently, that those of
i us who were most apprehensive, were scarcely pre
pared to witness. It is now strong and arrogant
enough, to control the most numerous branch of Con
gres., to elect a speaker who would not decide wheth
er we, or our negroes are the superior race-to clog the
wheels of the Federal Government, at will-to en
gage in open rebellion and war, and murder our friends
for daring to claim equality in the Territories purcha
sed with our money and our blood, and more than all#
to nominate an ordinary Lieutenark of the army for
President of the United States, without even desiring
or asking the co-operation of a single Southern State,
with the determination, to subdue the South below the
condition of a province, to destroy her honour and
i rights, and ultimately, to reduce us to equality with
i our slaves. and authorize them to claim, (as now by
Law in Massachusetts,) to associate in our families
and marry our children. If they succeed In this elec
tion, I trust all will agree with me that the Union is
dissolved and ought to be dissolved, for there can no
longer be union of interest, of right, of property, of
sentiment, of hononr or equality, and the election of
Freemont will proclaim it to the world. Should Buch
anan be elected, the Union may survive for a time, and
possibly be preserved, provided Democrats he Demo
crats and Statesmen, maintain their position and ad
minister the Government according to their professions
and the Constitution, and look. much less, teoffices
and plunder. In my judgement the year 1860, in any
event, will settle the matter, and I think it our duty to
await the result of the pending election-watch sell
the signs of the times, and be prepared to act as be.

honour, and with the spirit to maintain them at any

ern Confederacy, I have no gloomyapprehensions eith
er for our honour, our happiness or the Institution of
slavery. Indeed in view of the fate of the Roman
Republic and the history of our own Government to
the present moment, I am doubting more and more,
that a Republic can well exist without the institution
of slavery. A very large proportion of the North con
stitutes now but a mad fanatical rabble, with all the
wicked isins of which man can conceive-repudiating
God, the Bible, the law, marital rights or the constitu
tion, and if it were not for the extraordinary extent of
territory in which their wickedness may be diluted,
and the conservatism of the South, they would ere
this, have been consumed by the infernal fires of their
own abominations. Truly may it be said of them,
(with all proper honourable exceptions) " those whom
God would destroy, he first makes mad," but I am
admonished, I must close this already too protracted
letter. Allow me to offer the following sentiment:
The South, the beloved South; she will never be re
duced to the condition of Massachusetts as long as the
example of Col. Ba ooss is in the memory of her sons.
Please accept for yourselves and through you, for
those you represent, my grateful acknowledgments for
your kind invitation.
