Our New York correspondent informs us in his
lst letter, of the 'aston:ishmnent and grief espe
rieneed by the e-ongregattion of IIENnr WARD
BE~EEn re-ad~ting his intimation that he fit
vored the creed of the Universalists. We thought
the t riends r.id admuirers of BEEcuER had passed
beyond that,oint when they would be, surprised
of eren feel cztraordinary emotion at any act
this ch-ampien might,do, or any. word he might
enuncate. If the w.enabers of BI:sen:.:f's Church
wotild take the pains to think more for them
selves,-an d regard m or-e .sincerelyn the sublime
teahings of the Segr' tures, rather than the po,
littcal fanaticisms oT a pulpit act6r, .they would
have cause to be=nmazed every Su ndAy that they
litened to his preaching.
For Pr.Ass1. -One of 3.b S.:vannah editors,

A minister out West.advertises, in the hope ot
making~ young people come- forward, that d.uriug
the'warmn weather he will marry them, for "a
lass of whiskey, a' dozen Qf eggs, the first kiss

A tare placeis the west, hard cases and strange
stori come from that fax'off; this minister how
ever evident the fact of being hard 'up, shows
himself a man of taste, an epicure,- and fond of
good things.

have nrefa3red to no:ein-atee quite'a diffoieyi
ti-vlet fr-om the on'- now nresen ted for their
sn.l'age. There seans tobe very little force
in these o .jctions, fr the world is con troled
and gouverned by com:bi n-:ira, 'ad coalitions
manairged by a few individuals. It was .the
master mind of Williamn Pitt, thait defe:-ed
The ambitious' plais and gigantic str-ides of
the- zreat Naipoleon towards L:dversal empireC,
hv. f>rm:ir.g a coalition between England anud
the oQyr.mations'ot'-Europe. It is -perfecte
useless foer 'men to belong to a party urmiess
they .are willing to do the. bidding of their
leaders. [t has long since been an exp,loded
doctrine in F.arope, and is fast becoming so
in this ponntry, that thme people are capable of
governing. themslSVes, and hetice they shouh1i
w!!ing!y submit to be governedu and directed
by tirese intel!igent leaders, suchx as those put
in noinntion by the coalition said to habive~
been formed-o.n sale day last.
In' eply' o this, it is Said that- thIese men
ak farsee-in: statesnmship, for they aided
in precip;it ating the cntr'y into 'the mos.t
gigantic war., the wQr[d ever saw, and. thus.
brought utter rnin on the 'who~le South, and'
therefore that they should not be 'trusted
agan, lest they prec pitate us again into
oher difnulties.' StAtLesmen, like other.men,
must mako.experiments, and mnust sometimnes
fCil. We- a-ll'can bow see that s,eeession was'
a most 4uiAou'sstep, the way it was rhaniaged ;
bu t it is tnot certain -that it would- have been
soif alt, and especit!!y ~thiosa who - initiated
see.siCon, h:d. faced the mpusie.
It has been further objected' to the nomfin~a
tion of Col. Moorima-n, for the Senate, and
Goa. G.arligtun for the HWuse, that they
hae $> managed together ais to keep' one gr.
the other of tbemu in the' Senatorial offie for
many years. Thamt when it was thbug'ht Gern.
Garngton could b'e. electegCo!. Njoormnar
gave way to him, anid when it was th.ought he
could' not he clocted,~ then *Co}. Moormnun, as
the most.popular of the two, wonld t un for
the n,osition/ so -as to keep it in the family.
In repig to this, I would say that 'insteadj
of this exhibition of their skill in mnanage
met, be-ing an objection to their election at
tis timel, it is rathier a recommendation, for
it sho;vs their ability to serve their consti
tuents successfully in this wayT. We need
ju::.t s,'ch-inangging men in thc Legislature to
secure to our District its due p)roportion of
eoBees. There will have to 'be several'new
Judges elected, and by having such managing
men as our reO!resentatives, we- may secure
one of these oUitees for one-of our Newberry
Lawyrs. It is-said that . Col. Moorman, has
not his equal in the. State- in log-roiling andj
managing electiom's,' and as an 'evidence of it,
did he not c6mec very near givmng Newberry a
Govr.nor at the last session.~ He was one of
the 'managinmg members- of the Convention.
which carried the State cut of the Unio-a i
1860, and appointed an advisery council.d
Gv. Pickens, which, though it 'proved tE be
a greatblunder and a- curse to the country,
yet it was intended for the best, and many~
persons thought it ne.cessary.
I.bhad liked to have omdtted another ob' e
tion which is frequently urged againsta . e
election of Messrs. Moorman and Garlinigton,
both" now -and heretofore. It is this--that
they are so c6nmpletely. ur.der the influence of
Col. Fair, that when he takes snuff they both
sneeze. I am m ot at all prepardd to.admnit
this to be thie cas.e in any sense, andspirtica~-I
larly' in an odious sense, bu-t if it was,wether
am' I prepared to admit this t3 :be a-serioQg
ojection. We should. cri men terrepresent.e
us inahe Legislature for the.amount of good
they are. able to~ do for the -people, -and it'
m!ia~vem-y little wheth-or -they ~iccomp~ish
mnitted bf .all, that Col. Fair, is one ofAte
most skillful wirc-workers in-the State, and'
has in that way, as nrch influence in tht
Legisigture as any other man. Why then
shoultd his influence over thes;-entlegew 16e
an'olbecti thei- election.
Mr. EditRI have endeavored in this com
munication to give you the 'principal o1jec.
tions .urged against the coalition above re
ferred to, tnd such aiswers to these ol.jeetions
as my fe.bl- understanding could stiggest.
Hoping these an.swers may be satisfactory, I
remain yours, &c.
