of the necessaries of life. We want provisions of
all kinds, and clothing for the poor; material for
making clothes would be exceedingly acceptable,
as well as provisions. The money subscriptions
from all classes of the community for the relief of
the sufferers have been exceedingly liberal and
many houses and-warehouses have been placed at
the disposal of the committee appointei by the
Mayor, to take charge of the unfortunates, but we
want a supply of food and clothing immediately."

Our State Calls to Arms !
, Wa have been authorized by the Governor to
y raise a Battalion or Regiment for the defence of
' the State, under the following Resolution of the
t. General Assembly :
"ZResolred, That the Governor, in the event of
the invasion of the State, or if in his judgment
the State should be in imminent danger of inva
sion before the next meeting of this General As
sembly, be authorized to call for Companies of
Volunteers, and organize them into Battalions and
Regiments, in such manner as in his judgment
may be most expedient for the defence of- the
Companies wishing to enter the special service
of the State under the above Resolution, will
pleaso report to us at Edgefield C. H., without
delay. They must consist of 76 rank and file,
armed with the best rifles, double-barrelled shot
guns or muskets they can procure. They must
also be prepared with four days rations, and be
ready to march promptly on the receipt of orders.
WM. C. MORAGNE,
Nov 18th, 1861.
N. B.-I have also been authorized to receive
volunteers for the organization of one or more
Companies, which may elect their own Company
officers, of course. I should be especially glad to
receive twenty or thirty more men to complete the
a Company of Edgofield Reserves, now forming at

Sustain Your Paper.
The patrons of this paper thus far stand firmly
up to us in our efforts to weather the tremendous
1 political tempest that sweeps over the land ; No
o have we any roars that they will fail us in the
I hour of our utmost noed. Edgefield is the largest
district in the State after Charleston, with a peo
ple of high spirit, marked intelligence and honest
district pride. It will be for them to say whether
their paper. shall hold its course with a proud
consciousness that it rests upon as enlightened a
pullie opinion as any other journal in the South,
or shall languish from want of sufficient suste
nance. We anticipate no seriotis difficulties if our
bona fide Edgefield list shall lend theiraid prompt
ly as heretofore. If we make but little, it will
f give us no great concern so both ends barely meet.
SBut we do earnestly desire that the Edgefield pa.
. per may prove one of the journals that shall sur
a vive the present days of trouble. It were idle to
say that this is a purely disinterested wish on our
? part; for, in truth, our welfare and that of our
families is much involved with the Advertiser's
existence. Yet, merely as a matter of district
pride, we would do much and even sacrafice some
thing to have it said at the close of this war, that
our good old district, amid all the trials of the
period and all the calls of the country, also 'stood
f by its local journal throughout. To this end, we
r now address a most respectful request to our old
d friends to think of this matter, to consider the im
." ortance of a weekly luc:cl paper to the wives,
daughters, mothers and si ters of our two thous
and soldiers in the field, to refleet upon the neces.
n sity of a continuancd of the district advertising
r sheet, to weigh also the sentiment of district credit
above alluded to, and to act accordingly. For
twelve long years we have held weekly converse
', with you, and if there have been any circumstan
ces of that intercourse that gave dissatisfaction to
? a single reader, no ono regrets it so much as we.
The d.ays of peril and of trial are come, and shall
that intercourse ccaeso by your neglect? Nat for
r a single mnoment do we entertain the apprehen
sion. Meet us as of yore with the smile of en
- couragement, and the still small pay of the prin.
te. and we shall be yours to ..cmtna in aidver
alty as in pros~perity.
