The Moral Effect of Italian Moderation.
We toiay the follojwing . an the London,
corres pondence of thu .&dio.tal Jntelligencer.
It vividly de picts was~ Italy is gaining by as
sumning a mo~derate b'ut finn attitude. Would
such be the sympathy of the world in her be
half, if she riuted-in the ultra and tumulhuous
orgies of fanaticism and Red Republicanism,
through which Mazzini would lead her ?
" We rejoice in the reassuring attitude of
Italy. Jt presents to us an unexpected and a
touching spectacle. Italy was roused from
sleep ras it were by the war cry of Piedmont.
Young men every where left the college, and
bar, the desk, the shop, and the field, to swell
the ranks of heroes, nor were the middle-aged
nor even old mecn unsmitten by the general
enthusiasm. And what is the attitude of Italy
at this period of angered and anguished feel
ing ? Does she show herself to be that " land
of assassins" which the Imperialists at Vienna
andl the Priests at Rome and every where else
would have us believe her to be ? Most as-i
suredly not. IIer attitude and her entirei
bearing and enrriage nre grand, and truly
dignified and noble. .Deserted by her friends,
sihe takes refuge in herself. Calmuly collecting
her remaining forces, sihe awaits the decrees
of Europe on her fate. We hear of no Ma
zinian conspiracies, of neither tumult, robbery,
nor riot. Could Jtaly do more ? rTe moral I
effect of this moderation will not be lost. The
indepenidence of Italy has become a question
of prime European importance, and can never I
again sink into even a secondary place. The a
spirit of the Italian people has been stirred,
and they have learned in this brief camnpaign
what may be done by united, well or-ganized,
and resolute effort."
LAia.-The Tarboro' Southerner says, " we
learn that a few days since Dempsy D. Bryan
sold his plantation, near 1). Hinton's contain

* The Charlotte Democrat says W. R. Myers,
Esq., sold ten acres of land last week, in the
*neighborhood of Dr. Taylor's tan-yard (near
Charlotte, we presume,) for $100 per acre.
Ten years ago the same land changed hands C
at $5 pe-: acre.
We think it more than probable that the e
landa in this State have doubled in value since a
.1848. .This great increase in price,- and the
, prosperty wiich pervades all departmeits of

Senator Douglas on Popular Soverignty.
Whatever may have been tho uncertainty here
tofore as to the precise extent of. Senator Do.uo
LAS's views of popular sovereignty, the.matter is
now set at rest by the publication of an elaborate
paper from the pon and under the name of that
gentleman. His position is distin'tly stated to be,
that the people of tha Torritories uider a-Territo
rial government hare the inalienable right to
control their internal polity, slaviry included, as
in their judgment they shnll deem expedient.
The position is one to which the South will not
accede. Neither is it to be expected that she will
now ignore it in the coming Presidential canvass.
The grounds set forth by Mr. DoLaLAs are- teO
sweeping in their extent and too conspicuous in
their promulgation, to allow the politicians of our
section to dodge them. io tako it for granted
therefore, that they'will make common fight in tho
matter, and that Mr. DouL.rwill stand-but little
cilance for a nomination at'Charleston with their
approval. At least, such seems to be the present
tone of the public mind at the South so far as
heard from; although it is also true that the pub

to say that it does honor both to the he.'L sI' the

and dispassionate argunient based on rational
premises, and carried to its height with consum
mate ability. It panders as little to " phronzied
fanaticism" as it does to " sectional aggrandise
ment," and goes strait forward to its points with
the steadiness of an honest conviction. We all of
eaurse dissent from the conclusions thus arrived
at by this statesman of the North West; yet riono

None will deny that he makes out a most plausible
defense of the Constitutionality of his doctrine.
None, surely, will now ro recklessly hurl at his
head the epithets of treason and selfish ambition,
seeing. that ho has announced the grounds of his
belief like a freeman and a patriot, and has thus
risked an opposition that will in all probability
defeat his aspirations toward 'he Presidewicy. For
one, we adopt a higher estimate of the fairness
and independence of Senator DouaLAs than 'we
have ever before entertained. As he has set him
self aside in the canvass by his own act, it be.

concentrating on their standard-bearer. Wo trust

about the matter, especially at the South. To

account for the erroneous infmrmation that is gen

is it a want of proper regard for veracity, or be

the New Jersey Railroad, by thc elopement
of the editor of one of the village papers
with the sister of his wife. The circunm

are remarkably singular, and afford a striking

gentleman some 35 years of age, enjoying a
good position in society, and for the last ten'
or twelve years has be'en a mtemnber in high
standing of a Christian Church. In his family
relations he has been, it is believed, more
thani usually ha~ppy.
In ldis children, two in number, he has al

A Fatal Rencontre.
GEORGETOWN, S. C. September 1, 1859.
A very sad affair has just occurred here, in
an affray between Richard D. Evans and
Leounard Dozier, Jr. The latter drew a re
volver and fired five shots at the former, two
of which entered the middle of his breast and
one going through his beart. Evans died
within five minutes.
Two weeks ago an assault was made by
Dozier upon Evans, which laid him up for
several days, and this was the first opportuni
ty Evans had to attack Dozier, which he did
with a stick, which affair has terminated so
fatally. Dozier had his head laid open by
Evans.-Correspondence Char. Courier.
A most singular accident and deliverance
occurred at the residence of Mr. Jas. G.'Kirby,
near Buzzard Roust, on the 16th ultimo. A
valuable boy was sent down in his well to re
move sand that washed to the bottom, and
after sending up one buckei-full he saw signs
of the curbing giving way atthe bottom, and
urged haste. The bucket' was again lowered
rapidly, but had scarcely got within reach <-1
the boy, when it was arrested hard and fast by
a superincumbent mass of thirty f, et of rock,
and the boy below the whole. Concluding
that the boy was dead, and the requisite as.
sistance not being at hand, a delay of about
two hours ensued before an effort was made
for his release. Some three hours work
brought the boy's head in view, though, having
exhausted the oxygen, he experienced sufor.
cation, and would have died in a short time,
from a description-of his sensations after re
lease. it is singular that a man could be thus
wedged in, from head to heel, by a compact
mass of rock, and yet survive at the end of
five hburs. It. appears that an incompetent
well-digger did the walling, and in a slovenly
and insecure manner; and persons having
work done by hin should be careful how they
send their negros ito his.vrells.-Spurtan.

Under the head of "natural curiosity," the

Some time last fall, a swarm of bees
"swarmed" in an open place under the roof
of Marston's cottojn warehouse, and there
commenced'the work of' forming a comb.
They have kept busily at work ever since,
and. no one interfering with their labors,
