This large and intelligent body of Christian gentlemen assembled in our town on Friday morning last. The numerous Churches with. in the limits of the State were, we believe, generally represented. It has been an odea. sion of much interest to the Church, and of much oleasure and Christian commingling of the Delegates and our citizens generally. It is gratifying to us to know, too, that very many have been agreeably disappointed in regard to the appearance, the general charae ter, and the pleasantness of our town as a place for temporary sojourn, and that so many will go away with pleasing recollections of their visit. The-introductory Sermon before the Con vention, in connection with a large congrega tion, was preached on Friday morning by Dr. J. C. Furman. It is said to have been an effort full of the beauty and power of pulpit oratory, and that comported fully with his previous reputation and the high position occupied by him in the Church to. which he belongs. At the ennclusion of the sermon the convention was organized. Judge J. B. 0eall was chosen President; Rev. J. G. Landrum, of Spartanburg, Vice-President; Hev. F. J. Brantly, of Newberry, Secretary; and J. C. Judson, of Greenville, Treasurer. The hours of meeting and adjournment were fixed by resolution as follows: Morning -convene at half-past nine and adjourn at one o'clock. Afternoon-convene at four and adIjourn at six. One half hour each morning. by resolutions, was spent in prayer, for a re vival of missions. During the sitting, inte'resting reports were made from the different -Boards in connexion with the Church. Amoog these were the ]Bible Board, located at Newberry, of which lIev. J. J. Brantly is secretary: the Education lloard. at Greenville, S. C.; the Sunday School and Culportage Board, at Darlingtoti ; and the Pulicatio~n Board, at Charleston. Several interesting meetings of. the Board of Trustees of the Furman University .vere held during the sitting of the Convention. Of the doings of this body, wo regret that we have no report at hand. No change we under stand was madec in the Professorships of the Institution. On Saturday evening a mass meeting was held in the Baptist Chureb, in furtherance of the interests of-'he University, and with a view especially to bttain a more munificent endowment of it. Addresses were delivered by Judge O)'Neall, Dr. Furman, Professor Duncan, and others, appealing in tbat behalf, anti illustrating and setting forth the great interests and influence of education. Some pecuniay responses were made on the occasion, but we are not informed as to their character or amount. On Sunday last, an unusual concourse of people were present in town. The several pulpits were filled by preachers belonging to the convention. The following, we believe, were the appointments: Presbyterian Church .-morning, Prof. Reynolds; afternoon, Rev. J. C. Phelps. Baptist-morning, R1ev. - . Furman; afternoon, Rev. Mr. Hillmtan, of Tennessee; and night, Rev. E. T. Winkler, of Charleston ; Methodist-miorning, Rev. J. G. Landrum ; afternoon, Rev. G. B, Bealer (to the blacks ;) and night, Prof. Duncan. The ordination of Rev. R. Norton took place on Sunday night. The Baptist Chuch, on both floors, was tilled to its utmost capacity. The ordination sermon by Mr. Winkler, the charge by Mr. Bealer, and the prayer by Mr. Landrum, were unitedly and singly imposing and interesting. - The Southern Baptist Publication Society held a meeting yesterday, at which much 01 interest transpired. The Convention adjourned yesterd: y after noon.-Sumter Watchman, 2d inst. Letter from President Buchanan.

THE FOURTH OF JULY IN EUROPE-INvERt EsTINtG CELEmaATIoN.-The celebrations of the Fourth of July in Europe this year, have been unusually interesting. In St. Peters burg the day was celebrated by all the Amer icans sojourmng in that city, and in the even -ing our Minister, Mr. Pickens, gave a ball, which was well attended by the court gener ally. The most interesting commemoration, however, took place in Bremen. Six Amern ican vessela in port were beautifully decorat ed, and the commanders kept " open shops"~ all day, with collations always on the table.

MANY of the gentlemen of this Village have as sociated themselves together in a Literary Club, for their mutual inmprovement in learning, com position and elocution. They also propose to de liver Lectures, and read thei-r Essays-in public, so that, if while they are seeking their own adlvan tage and advancement, they shouldl be ablo to present anything of merit and originality, it may redound also to the benefit of Society. * The- meetings will he held once every two weeks in the Odd Fellows' & Masonic Hall, or in the Court Hlouse, and the whole community--men, women and children--are invi:ed to turn out, and give a good enterprise their countenance and en couragement.

It is brought to our attention onl the eve of going to press,-4nd we must necessa rily he curt. We readily accede to the Guardian the proposi tion it lays down, viz: That the .Adrertiser is not tho pulse of fte people of Sonth Carolina. Our paper has never presumed to oneupy any such ar rogant poisition, and the Gurdioan is troubling it self very unnecessarily to declare that such is not the fact. The Guardian need give itself no concern as to the Cincinnatti Enguirer'a statement .of our rela tie position towards two distinguished statesmen of South Carolina. The Adrerliaer trusts it is no vanity to say, that now, as always, it utters its own sentiments, in its own language, and accor ding to its own promptings,-and that no one, therefore, is responsible -for its course except its own humble conductori'. We allow the Guard ian the same merit of inde pendeneo that we claim for ourself; yet we also assert that, like alt other mere human institutions, it is liable to err, especially when it enunciates such wholesale assumptions as that Senator Hair oN's Beech Island Speech " meets the fullest ondemnation of every Southern Rights man in South Carolina." All the voter.' in Suthe fCrilina are Southern Rig1hi. mec ; and two-thirds of the,'e voters will be found, when occasion shall offer, endorsig the sentiments of their distinguished Senator as sot forth in his Beech Island and Barn wlt speeches. The Guard ian's fine allusion to the "re-ereheing of the bugle blast," is a species of fancy declama tion long since worn out. So, when it comes to assert that we are "counsolliaig submission &e. &c, the song is equally old and hackneyed. Did it never occur to our bold coattemaporary, that it is he and his alarmed associates who are backing down in the present instance, crying, "come, lep us leave this estab'lishmnen t before we andl ours are all consumed by these fierce Republicans?"-while others of us prefer to stand irin ad controll thu enemy in the Union, orclee bureak up the compact, like rational men, on sullicient cause shown to justify us in the eyes of the world and before pos terity? Another word. The resul'. of the Alabama Elections is an index to the triimph of the con servative Democracy throughout the Soath ; and with that triunph, the arguments for disunion ons noissuet will vanish "like clouds before a Biscmay ale. The Charleston Mercury and Senator Douglas. In reply to the Mecrcury'a article of the 2nd in stant, we have nothing to say by way of preface, except that we, like the Mercury, express ourself upon this suljoect as a- Carolinian rather than as an editor; that in offering counsel, we are as far as the Mercury from thrusting ourself officiously be fore the State: and that we designed no attack upon any public man or upon any press in South Carolina when broaching this discussion. Again, as to our "abhorrence" of Mr. DOUGLAS, -we hope the Mercury, being evidently satisfied on that point, will give us credit for disinterested motives in what we shall say of him. But to the question: We take Mr. DOUG LAs's position to be this: He isa non-interentiunist according totheplain under, standing of that expression, viz: He maintains that Congress shall not intervene, either to carry slavery into a Territory, or to exclude it from the same. So far, even the Nercury will admit that Mr. DeCOLAS is no more a traitor to the Constitu tion than is Mr. Huxm, or than nine-tenths of Southern Democrats are. But Mr. DoUGLAs is sail to go further, and to hold that a Territorial Legislature has the right to exclude slavery in terms before the Territory has become endowed with the prerogatives of a Sovereign State. Under this apprehension of his position, we have not been slow to denounce his views as heretical and subversive of the Constitution of the United States. If such be his views now, we are ready still to o-unsel any risk rather thar countenqnce them by consenting to tolerate his election to the Presi dency. But, if we are not much deceived in our information, such is not the naked and defenceless nature of the Senator's Territorial creed.- Pro perly stated, it is this: He dues not admit that a Territorial Legislature can by expren enactment exclude slavery from a Territory, but allows that, if done, it is a violation of the Constitution ; al though the remedy be suggests, in opposition, as it were, to Congressional action, is an appeal to the yudilial Tribunals of the Government for protection. He does not therefore recognize the principle, that the Territorial Government is of .greater power than, or of equal power with, the Federal Government; on the contrary, he holds it to be of derivative and Inferior authority. So far again, Mr. Dotimrs cannot be said to teach treason to the Constitution. What then is his heresy ? The head and front of his offending bath this extent, no more: That a Territorial Legisla ture may, by withholdinag protective legislation, cause the tenure of slave'property to be accompa nied with so much trouble and uncertainty in a Territory as virtually to-exclude or banish it from said Territory. Now, does this mere tvithholding of legislation by a Territorial Governnent clash with the Constitution of the United States? And if not, is Mr. DOVGLAS to be ruthlessly assailed as an enemy to the Constitution for entertaining the opinion that such will be the practical work. ing of the Territorial regulations ? Bear in mind that Mr. DocrAs's opinion is noitler law nor gospel in the premises. Many incline to the idea that his shrewdness is at fault in this conclusiun. It is believed by these, that this withholding of legislation will amount to nothing, so long as there is no power recognized in a Territory to seize and confiscate slave-property, and so long as the Fed eral Courts shall continue to hold over it the broad and sufficient nigis of their protection. The announcement by Mr. DO-GLAS or a contrary view is after all but an opinion, not a principle. It is an opinion, we have no doubt, intended to appeal to the favor of the free-soilers of the North,-a trick unworthy of a statesman possessing the ability and enjoying tbe position of Senator DOUG LAS. Still it is not, a. it occurs to us, uny such departure from the Democratic creed as must needs call down upon his head tIe ban of ex-com munication from the pale of the Democratic Par. ty. It is just cause for dissatisfaction with him, but not a political crime of such magnitude as to prclude the possibility or his being again placed upon a footing of friendship and co-operation, even with the Southern wing of the Democracy. Many at the South entertain the belief that pub lic opinion in the Territories will alwaygbe found therein long before they come asking places in the Union. Mr. Dot-GLAS. gues a step further and assrts that this public opinion will manifest itself in the Territorial Legislaturese, as far as it can do so without directly infringing the Constitution. There seems to be but a shade or difference be tween the two positions. For all practical purpo see, they work out the same result. Territorial legislation never has and never will exclude slave ry from a Territory truly aduapted to sluve labor ; and Congressional legislation itself, to the full ex tnt of a slave code, will never carry slavery where it cannot be made really profitable. The history of our country has alm.st made this pro position axiomatie. Jhit the Mercury maintains that Senator DorL LAs goes further and says that the " Territorial Legislature may, by unafrien.dly legislatiu.n, exclude slavery from a Territory, or banish it when there." What is here meant by unfriendly legislation ?" If it be any such direct attack upon the .privilegos of slave-holders as amounts to oppression, of course it is an unconstitutional procedure, and cannot be held valid. If we understand Mr. Doror.As's po sition, he does not deny that the right of appeal to the Courts is left open to the slave-h'ilder; neither does he deny that the Courts should affordt redress. Suppose the Territorial Legislature de lare in express terms that all slaves found within the Territory he confiscated, or be manumnitted, is it averred that Mr. DouroLAs will hold that ac tion to ho constitutional and valid ? If so, we ave miscontruedl his position. Or suppose that a tcrritorial legislature shall lay an anual tax of $100 per hesd upon every slave, when all other pr.p:rty is paying an ud valore, of i of one per cent, is it truie that Mr. DOt-GLAs would regard such a tax constitutional and a measure fromi which there wais no apspeal? Surely not. The words "unfriendly legislation," the-n, nmust imply the samse condition of things as is secant by " the withholding of protective legielation." And we reeat the question, Is it clearly unconstitutional in a territorinl legislature to neglect to pass ex press lewd for the protectIon of slav-e property ? Are nut the Courts there to give that protection?7 And if they will not, is there not a last appeal to the Congress of the United States ? If Mr. DOUG As denies the right of this final appeal, he Is in error ; but so long as he admits that there is a means of redress existant sonlewbere, we do not see that he is, on that account, liable to the grave carge of wilfully subverting the Constitution of the United States. The Mereury asks: "Can you, consistent with sn priniadle; support a man for the Presidency o the United States who openly declares his in ten~tion tos defeat and overthrow the Constitution if the ITnited States ingtsoperation in our Terri tories ?" Our answer is readily given: Under no cicuatcea, if such be his "openly declared in tention." We are no apologist for Senator Doro z.A; n'-ither are we an advocate of his promotion to the Presidency enept as it may become naoom mary to conserve the Integrity and ensure the triumph of the Democratic Party. Our contem porary well understands that the Adv'ertiser's humle uggestions have thus far proceeded upon the possibility of Mr. DOuGL.As becoming the eventual choice of a large portion of the Southern Democracy. In that ae only, have we consider d the question whether we could reconcile his support with a due regard for Southern rights and Southern interests. If the Mercury's reading of his "intentions and policy" ho correct, then indeed would it be difficult to do no. Bet we submit, with great respect for our cotemporary's opinion, that it has distorted and exaggerted (undesigned ly of course) both the "intentions" andl the " poli cy" of Mr. Datr.LAS. It may he that we acre in error and haye not seen this statesmnan's aims and principles in their trpae light. If so, be it under stood that we are but counselling with friends and fellow-citizens to discover the line of duty. I~f we think we see it in reasonable concosslons tu the wishes and preferences of a party which has stood our friend in many difficult emergencies, surely our suggestions are notto bestigmatised as "faith less to the Constitution and1 to South Carolina." Yet, as much as this tone of vituperation is to be deprecated, it is not to be regarded when the peb u li....is At takO. We rat the'. that 1uaa become necessary for South Carolina to decide whether she will act with the South and vote for DotGLAS against a Black Republican; and our most respectful word of caution still is, lot her deliberate well before determining to throw away her vote (as the eecury advises) upon " no can didate." Upon that vote, may chance to hang the destiny of the American people. Lot us hope that it will only be cast upon a just estimate of the value of our great Democratic Organization and upon a proper realisation of South Carolina's duties to the South and to the Union. If this be nationalism, then is the imputation a thing to be coveted rather than abjurod. The Augusta Papers. Our contemporaries of Augusta reach us very irregularly of late. We know not where the fault is. Will the condactors of those papers please have an eye to the noglect. The Erskine College Recorder. This sprightly publication continues to reach us rogularly.

Take half a peck Green Tomatoes; stem them and slico thin; salt heavily; then lot them remain until you get all the other ingredients ready; when you go to cook them don't forget to drain off all the water that is in them. Other ingredients. Half the quantity of onions sliced thin without the nalt. Three spoonsfull of ground mustard. Two of grain black pepper. Three of grain spice. One teaspoonful of cloves. Pour pods of red, and four of green pepper, out fine; j lb. of white mustard seed. Three roots of ginger. To this quantity add three quarts of good Apple Vinegar. Put all together in a kettle and boil, until as thick as good catsup. Then put in small bottles and cork tightly. The New Rome. The Atlanta Confcderacy, acfter reviewing the mixed politics of some of his ear neighbors, thus addresses himself to the imprecatorial part of his comments: Did there ever exist upon the green earth or under the vaults of celestial space a cess pool con taining half the impurities, deadly gases, and noxious vapors as there now can be found in the limits of Floyd county. Sodom and Ghomorrough were cities of white robes dipped in the blood of rejeneration compared to Rome, Georgia. 0, for a shower of brimestone and fire to purgo and puri fy the seven hill city. That's what the Georgians call "a blessing." The Mercury's Correspondent. A correspondent of the Charleston Mercdry, af toralabored flourish of irony addressed to " South ern Democratic leaders," thus attempts the anti climax of his ridicule: In return for this high compliment to their lofty patriotisn, their stern integrity and their whole souled devotion to the party, let them not forget to be grateful, but "render tribute to whom tri bute is duo." Let them, in the ebullition of their present joy, and still more in the fruition of their hoped for triumph, remember that these fiatering encomiums in northern papers upon their worth, fidelity and usefulness, were elidited by the re raarks of a southern journal. The Edgelleld Ad vertiser is fairly entitled to the thanks of Judge DoUGLAs, and of all his sound, reliable democratic friends at the South. Surely it too bas a right to expect the "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." So it is ever in South Carlina;-An individual or a press that dares to utter conservative senti ments, or to offer considerations of expediency that conflict with the vague disunion aspirations of certain restless spirits, must needs encounter aspersions upo his honesty of purpose and suspi cions of cenmplicity in political intrigues for sinis ter objects. We have but a word or two to sy to the anone-. etrare digito. The Aeertiser knows nothing of the "encomi ems in Northern papers " that have been elicited by its remaurks in reference to Judge Dot:GLAs. Those papers have nut yet reached our sanactums, and it is neither expected nor desired that they will. Our purpose in introducing the mention of Judge DOrGtas's name in connection with the Charlestun Convention, was to awaken thought upon the subject in our own State, and to prevent snap judgement on a point, the ultimate decision of which (as we respetfully urge) should not be arrived at hastily and without a full understanding of the wishes of-our sister States of the South, from Virginia to Texas. With this motive, a number of reasons were suggested why it might be better to elect even the Illinois Senator (himself the owner of a tine plantation and numerous slaves in Louisiana) than permit the Black Republican par ty of the North to get possession of the Govern Went. These reasons, substantial reaasons of ex pediency,-neither the 4lereury nor its correspon dent has thought fit to sonsider, but proceed in continentally to denoune our counsel as "desti tute of principle," and to hold us up as an expe tant of reward in the pending Presidential can vass, To both we say, continue to exercise your harsh judgement and to cherish your unjust sue picions as ye list ;-Wes regret becoming the sub jact of your censures, but will nevertheless go on to think and to write uas a sense of duty may suggest.

Because of his antecedents as follows: He was a warn advocate of the annexation of Tezas. He was an early and active enemy of the Wil mot Proviso. He has always waged an unrelenting war upon the Abolitionists of his section. Heboldly advocated the Fugitive Slave Law in the fame of the furious displeasure of his ConstitZ ueney. He was one of the chief agents in the removal of the Missouri Restriction. 2. Because, from his past course, there is much cause to expect that, if elected President of the United States, he will use tho power of his posi tion as much to promote the bout interests of the South, as of the North, or even of the North Weat. 3. - Because he is States Rights in him political ereed. 4. Because he is a Democrat whose political soundness is unquestioned except in the matter of popular aovreignty. 5. Because even if unsound on this point as is argued, there is no occasion likely to arise, during the next administration, calculated to draw from the President a practical illustration of his so called unsound views. 6. And if such an occasion should arise, he would not be apt to make use of it, but rather, in deference to the Southern wing of his party, to ignore and avoid it so far as Presidential inu. ence and Presidential patronage should be con earned. 7. Because he is in all respects more favorable to Southern prosperity than the beat Black Repub lican in the Union. 8. Because he is himself a slave-holder. We throw out these considerations for what they are worth. It does seem to us that any Southern man, who will weigh them well, and who will at the same time recall the more general grounds of policy some of which we have suggested in a previ ous number, cannot fail to conclude that it will be far better to support S'rPcM A. DOtUGLAS for the next Presidency than to allow that powerful office totailly't enmity with the South on all points. This is all that we have urged. In doing so we renounce ho principle. If we forego its assertiona until another day, and content ourselves with the present good of overthrowing Black Republican ismi, we both retain our honor unimpaired and make the most of the circumstances which sur round us. And this we call true devotion to Southerni interests. " Tom Puzzle." The. "Spectator" talks of a class of disputatioue, bipeds who existed in him day and generation and whom he designates with the name " Tom Puzzle." Whether the race be extinct or not, it will hurt no one to read what was said- of them by the admitted critics of a past age. Attend, it is the venerable " Spectator " whao speaks: " Tom Puzzle is one of the most enminent im methodical disputtats of any that baa fallen under my obervation. Tom has read enough to make him very impertinent; his knowledge is sual cient to raise doubta, hut not to clear them. Ilia a pity that he has so much learning, or that .he has not a great deal more. With these qualiti cations Tom sets up for a free-thinker, finds a grest nmany things to blame in the constitution of his country, and gives shrewd intimations that he does not believe another world. 'In short, Puzzle ii a Atheist as much as his parts wilt give him leave. Hie has got about half a dozen common phae topics, into which he never fuils to turn the cesrersation, whatever was the occasion of it: tlbugh the matter in dlebate be about Doway or lianain, it is ten to one but half his di.-course runenpon the unroasnabieness of bigotry and pirestraft.

But Fifteen Years Ago. BY ELIUP ToAIND. I have wander'd far awLY, Mase, From the spot where we were born; I scarcely know the place now, It looks so old and lone. I never see the fields nor, Or brooks and meados's low, Where wo in youth together played Just fifteen years ago.. My thou;hts are wand'zing back, Me., To days forever gone, To homes that were to ts so dear, Tho' standing now so lone; But ab! I fear, we ne'or can be So happy here blow, As was our sunny childhood free Just Afteen years ago. My thoughts iare wand'ring back, Mame, To the beech tree o'er the spring, - That near our early sehool-houso stood, And near to it our swing; Oh yes! and to the old, fat rock, With oorners round and low, Where many a joyous hour we spent, Just fifteen years ago. My thoughts are wand'ring back, Maem, To oqr teachers there so kind; The many kind words, (and the harsh,) Which we did little mind. Oh yes! to more than one of them, Tho' some of them lie low, We owe our thanks, for precepts given, Full fifteen years ago. I wandered to-the old spot, Mae, Last summer time, you know, The church and schoolhouse, stand there yet The rock and beech tree too; The friends are gone we used to meet, The shady oaks lie low, Where we in buoyant hopes once played Just fifteen years ago. I went into the grave yord, Mase, The walls are tumbling down; . On graves o'er which we both have wept, High gras and weeds have grown; New stones are standing high and white, Near those we used to know, And on them written names we loved, Just fifteen years ago. Oh ! sad my heart, whilst thinking, Muse, Of hopes and friends of yore; They're sleeping death's cold, silent sleep, We ne'er can see them more; But in Heaven's holy, peaceful home, We death no more can know, But live and praise with those we loved Just fifteen years ago. Sister Springs, S. C. July, 1859. For the Advertiser. The Cavalry Parade. It was my good fortune to r.tbend the parade c the 2nd Regiment of Cavalry at Longmire's, oi the 3rd inst. .Longmires has been for many year the parade ground of this spitited Regiment. Heri too, the camp musters, thoso excellent drilling schools for the citizen soldiery of South. Carolim of the lst Brigade, were fornmerly hetd. And al though the markers of Colonels, Generals, Gover norm no longer dot the hill-side, the spirit of elo quence and liberty seem to hc-ver over this vicini ty. Rach and every member of the corps as h rodo out on his richly caparisoned steed seemeo to feel his spirit kiqdling within him as mellowin memory brought to view tht. shadowy forms a McDoyrra, JousNvo and other gallant men wh once so fittingly presided'over the musters at thi laee,--All seemed '"To feel those god-like breathings in the air Which mutely told their spirits had been there." Although somewhat prepared for a small tur: ut, I was exceedingly surpri.ied at the very fei men they were enabled to bring out upon this oc asion. And it speaks but 4e for the militan pirit of Edgefield and Abbeville that this Corps --eaintdn eher not only in obedience to ,hi requirements om ,u- ..,.. s leasure. of gentlemanly eqnality, could muste at a general parade but sixty men rank and file Few as they were, they certainly showed that th sprit de corps was preserved in all its integrity Their evolutions were performed with a degrese ccuracy and alacrity that would have done credi o veterans. The Jefferson Nullifiers under th, ommand of Capt. TaSrT and Lieut. Simoi hose most excellent gentlemen and officers, coim osed the right wing of the Squadron, and thi he promptness with which they executed thi ommands of their officers gave evidence of dil ing which is well worthy of .mulation.

A NATIVE. OPEsNING oF TUE SLAvE T~RADE IN TEXAS. e Henderson (Rusk County, Texas,) mthern Beacon, whose editor, John McClar y, is a candidate for the Legidlature, in speak g on this subject, utters the following lan "Any re~viive man must know that, un r present circumstances, a repeal of the laws ohibiting the A frican slave trade is imposi ic; the measure would be defeated byat ast a four-fifths majority in the Southtern tates, to say nothing of the Northern vote. his minority assuredly could not expect the measure engrafted upon the platform to be opted at Charleston in 1860. Such a move set would destroy every vestige of hope of e success of the Democratic ticket which ay be brought forward by that body." The sney doctrine is not popular, i$ seems, sTexas. 30 ls whose soul does not sng, need net try ide nt Wh Ias thennt Dreadfal and Fatal Explosion. The locomotive, " F. H. Elmore," exploded. near the ninety-aix mile pout, on the South Carolina railroad, on Tuesday afternoon, be tween three and four o'clock. As all on board the locomotive and tender were instanly hurl ed into eternity, leaving no one to tell any of the circumstances leading to the dreadful ac cident, we can only speculate as to the causeg which produced it. There were five persons killed, and the an vexed list comprises their names, ke: Thomas Kingdom, engineer, a native of Charleston, and one of the ablest and most experienced engineers on the road. It is stated that he has been employed on the road for over twenty years Adam Donegan, wa'fire man, and a native of Germany Henry Vondelkin, was a conductor, and na tive of Germany. L. M. Chitty, was a conductor, and resided about Graniteville. Mr. Mitchell, was known as the conductor's man; he was a German. Meers. Chitty and Mitchell belonged to a train which was ahead of the Elmore, and as they had been left-at a station below, and got on the Elmore to overtake their own train, it is probable the Elmore was carrying a high head-of steam and traveling at great speed when the explosion took place. There was no train attached to the Elmoro-the engine and tender were all. The conditions of the persons killed was heart-rending. They were fri __tfly mangle and. must have been instantly killed. The bodies of some of them were hurled over one hundred ydars. It is charitable to the dead to allow the causes of this accident to remain unknown, but in justice to the living, and as awarning in t e future, all railroad employees should be admonished not to let private business or per sonal feelings induce them to leave their train, and hope by the quick running of other en gines to overtake their own trains. There is no ,doubtof it, that the frightful accident of Thurs day afternoon, had its remote cause in the delay of Messrs: Chitty and Mitchell and its proximate cause in the high speed necessary tolavertake the train ahe of them. All the persons killed were experienced railroad hands ; and several, if'not all, leave families. While we mourn over the untimely loss of life on this occasion,.it should admonish all not only of the uncertain tenure we have on life, but of the importance of a scrupulous com pliance with the regulations of buisness. Constitstionalist 6th inst. " Not a Ripple upon The Surface." Thus speaks the Hon. Alexander H. Ste phens, in his Fourth of July address: "In a national point of view, our progress has been great. Vast territories have been added to our -limits. Our trade, our com merce, our manufactures, our exports and imports have been more than trebled. His tory furnishes no equal to it in the annals of nations. All those gret sectional questions which.so furiously in their turn agitated the public mind, foreboding disaster, and which, from my connection with them, caused me to remain so long at the post you ssignqd me, have been amicably and satisfactorilyadusted, without the sacrifice of any principle or the loss of any essential right. At this time there is not a ripple upon the surface. The country was never in a profounder quiet, or the people, from one extent to the other, in a more perfect enjoyment of the blessings of peace and prosperity secured by these insti tutions for which we should feel nolessgrate fui than proud. Itis at such a time,and with these views of its condition, that I cease all active connection with its affairs." r This is somewhat different from the stereo typed howling about the "great black cloud" that is alleged to be gathering upon the Northern horizon, which is to be burst upon us in an avalanche of fury, and at which we are expected to be duly frightened. When we decline to exhibit any tremors at the re quest of our special alarmists and prophets of evil, we are set down as exceedingly mneredu lous, blind to what the future portends, and that we belong to the class of those .who cry "Peace, peace, when there is no peace." The sectional presses in tlie South are exceed r 'rdculuraigsofmoonstruc mAmen in .the North, and parading them before the a public as specimens of the generally prevail .ing ideas there. They are especially delighted, fas confirmatory of their views, when they can pick up an extreme extract fgm Mir. Seward, and appear to take it for granted that what Mir. Seward says is law and gospel in that part of the country ; that Mir. Seward -has but to put forth a fanatical sentiment, and the whole North and West will rally aupon it as obediently as a fiock of sheep - would follow their shelpherd. The late non sensical idea of Mir. Seward that negroes in rBoston and New Orleans must necessarily in the end have the same civil sia*'us, because -living under the same General Government, has been extensively published- in the South, as comptising in reality the principle of the platform o'f the whole North and West. We have been told, with a gresat flourish of trumpets and manmfestations -of alarm, that Seward, the great wizard of abolition, is mustering his hosts preparatory to a final and desperate onslaught upon the South, and the " Tribulation Trepids" have been dread fully scared, and exhorted to " shoulder arms" at once and march into Sardinia to conquer a peace, in advance of the crisis.-.If Seward ever sees these amsing jerenmiads, and if he has the least cachinatory elements in him, lhe must almost iplit his sides as the nervous ex citements which his adroit demagogue appealk produce among the Peter Simple., and the affected agitation amonig the demagogues, of the South.
