The Baptist Convention.
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. -

of this course. To cast doubts upon my pre

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

all day, with collations always on the table.

The- Southern Guardian and Ourself.
The Columbia Guardian devotes a co.lumnn to
the Adcerliser. 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. The July number evinces much clever
ness. The Recorder is in charge of the Senior
Class of Erskine College. It is an entertqining,
appanage of the institution, and will tell upon the
scholarship of those students who use it aright.
In glanoing over its pages It Is pleasant to observe
the germs of true ability which disolose themselves
so frequently.
A Fine Sauce.
For the benefit of house-keepers, we publish
below a recipe for making a delicious compound
known as Green Tomato Sauce. Upon the authori
ty of a lady friend who knows a good thing when
she sees it, we commend this racy preparation,
with entire confidence that it cannot fail to please.
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

Reasons for Preferring Douglas to a
Black Republican.
1. 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. This makes Mr. Puazle the adhmira
tien of- all those who have less sense than himiself,
and the contempt of all those who have mere.
Thure is none in town wham Tom dreads so mauch
am cy friend Will Dry. Will, who .js acquainted
wit Tom's logic, when he finds him r'ltinig oil
thequestion, cnts him short with a What then ?
hleu.lle,e all this to bie true, bu~t whAat is it to our
preent perpeae f I hsve known Tom eloquent
hal an hour together, and triumphing, am he
thought, in the superiority of the argument, when
he las been nonptua'd on a sudden by Mr. Dry',
deuring him to tell the company what it was that
he adeavoured to prove. In'short, Dry is a man
-of u:lbar methodical head, hut few word., and
galis the same advantages ever Pussle, that a
asai body of regular troops would gain over a
jberless undisetiduined militia."

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.

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.

After the parade, Gov. Grey made a short ad,

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

ohibiting the A frican slave trade is imposi
ic; the measure would be defeated byat
ast a four-fifths majority in the Southtern

his minority assuredly could not expect the
measure engrafted upon the platform to be

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.

" 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. What a beautiful'- picture these
sectional presses give the world of the confi
dence of the Southern people in themselves,
and of their ability to take care of and defend
thenmselves against aggressions, should any be
attempted.-New Orleans Bulletin
