Trip to Florida.
Having tecently been absent from
home on business, in the State of Florida,
I have thought it might be of interest to
some of your readers to know what is
doing in other portions cf the South, as
well as what is transpiring at home.
When I have occasion to speak of my
self, I might as well use the drst preson
singular as any other epithet, and thus I
shall do when I speak of myself.
Before going on board the Dictator, I
spent a day in the good old city of Char
loston. She sits like the Queen city of
the South, magnifcent in the midst of
the disastrous effects of the terrific strug
gle of arms which has recently terini
nated. There are some signs of return
ittg prosperity ; and every well w:her of
the South sincerely wishes her success
It is manifest that there must be energy
and activity combined to restore the ru
ined fortunes of any people. This is so
obvious that it is only necessary to men
tion it, to satisfy any one who has doub:s
as to the necessity of exertion on the
part of any people to recover from mis
fortune or disaster.
I heard that a comprnY from beyond
the limits of the State ottered to furnish
the city with water, from the Artesian
wells, or other sources, if the city authori
ties would give the company the right
to furnish the city with water, with the
privilege of charging those who would
have the water, and at the end of twenty
years, return the work, with the pipes
required to eonvey the water through
.the city, without conpen.sation, and that
savh a proposition was refused. If I
1are been incorrectly informed, or have
1hied it incorrectly, I hope I may be
On the evening of the 14th of i'ecem
ber last I went on beard the steamer
Dictator: Capt. L. M. Coxetter com
mander, and on Sunday evening, arrived
at Palatka, upwards of one hundred
miles up the St. John's River. My des
tination was Marion County, E. F.,
whither I arrived on the 16th. -
While in Marion County I had the op
portunity of learning what many of the
people of that country anticipated doing
YIuring this present year. They are all
very much excited with the prospects of
raising large crops of long cotton, with
:the labor of the freedmen. Hence there
are large numbers of these people, to
whom large wages are promnised, who have
gone and still are on the way, not only
to Marion Gounty but to other parts of
the State. Many of the freedmen seem
to think that this is the Paradise on
earth to them. Should the season be an
unfavorable one to the culture of cotton,
both employer and employee would be
disappointed, and the freedman will be
most sadly so, for he will not make but
very little, if any thing. Thlle year past
was very favorable to the culture of cot
ion, on account of the drought, but if
the season had been wet, the crop would
have been small. So of this year, should
it be wet and the catterpiller come, the
crop will probably be short, should it be
dry the crop will then very likely be a
Many of the freedmen are going out to
Florida to settle on Government lands,
at New Smyrna, iboi', seventy miles be
low. St. Augustine, under the patronage
or i n.juence of Gen. Ely. I am informed
that he takes these people to this place
for Ten dollars per head, arid places them
on the government lands and furn.ishes
thmem with one month's rations when
they reach their destination. What suc
cess mn:y attendl this enterprise, I cannot
tell, time must disclose.
Some of my old friends are going
largely into the culture of cotton, this
year. A. S. Eichelberger is one of
these men, and if he carries out his plans
successfully, and he has energy to do so,
by attending closely to his business, he
will do well. lie is now doing a large
mercantile business, has four cotton gins
running in Ocala, and now has two very
competent Book keepers to attend to his
Dlooks, with one of the best salesmnen (so

.I have mentioned these two individu

yosr readers, 'and both passed a large
portion of their life in this District.
'The whole of the people appear to be
ahnost wild with the excitement of cul

The weather was unpleasant on our
retuin from Florida, to Charleston, and
owing to head-winds, Capt. Coxetter
would not venture out to sea ; but we
reached Charleston on Friday the 4th of
January. The caution cf the Captaiin
was well exercised ; f .r though the
steamer could have with stood the rough
ness of the sea, it would have been very
naocomfortable to the passengers. Trhe
Dictator-is upward of 1000 tons burthen,
isilarge, strongly and securely bu ilt ;the
accengnoations r ape and every
tling is done to secure the comfor t of
the passengers, and their safety. She
is a fast sailer-as evidence of this, I cite
the time she made in" running from
Savannah to Charleston. She lay inile
of the bar at Savannah till 3 o'clock
Friday morning the 4th instant, and by
about 11 o'clock in the morning she was
alongside the wharf in Charleston.
The Captain is a gentleman. His
purser Mr. Cavedo, is obliging and
mattntieand all the crew know how to
place should not be supplied y Do they
not see that their lands will become of
little or no value, if labor for their culti
vation cannot be obtained ? These are
not idle tuestions-they go to the founda
tion of the prosperity of every people.
No people can be prosperous without
labor applied to the cultivation of the
soil, With t14sappliance, and the proper
direction of eApital to develop the re

MURDER oF CoL. STEEDMAN BY NEGr- Es.
-One of the bravest, best, most popular,
most honorable, most amiable citizens of
Lexington Distrit--of ail South Caro
lina-was Col. Marcellus Steedman, lcad
er, for some time during the late war,
of the sixth S. G. Volunteers. Since the
close of the war he has been living on
his farm on Edisto, and been engaged at
the same time in nerchandi>e. His
dwe'Eng and his store were under the
same roof On Tue-day night the Sh
inst., he walked out into his piazza, Ind
as he turned to go in, n as shot lv some
person unseen. As he fell, he cried out.
His n ife rushed forth, dragged him in
and bolted the door. le survived but
three hours. The wretched and bereaved
woman, with two ELtl- children, spent
the whoLe:night alone with the corpse,
feArin'g to give the Alarm.
Innediately upon the shot 'being fired,
thcre was a hubbub of voices, and Col.
Steedman rec" gnizei those of two ne
gro men, formerly slives of his father.
This, A ith their nanies, he disclosed to
his wife before he died.
And vire enongh, on the following
day, the two monsters wret arrested in
Aiken. They made full coufession. It
seems that they had followed Sherman
wlien he passed .through Lexington, and
had not returned thtber until a fortnight
before the murder. This fortnight
they had spent in watching their chance.
They had no grudge against their former
young ma]ster. but knowing that he was
in business, they killed him with the de
sign of getting money and robbing the
store. They intunded also to murder
the l:iy and children; hut w ith the first
shot their hearts failed them. We take
it fwr granted they are in Barnwell j:il.

BUSH RIVER BAPTIST CIIURCII.
Dec. 8th 1866.
DEAR BRo. WATLTERs :-Will you please
be so kind as to publislrin your valuable
paper, the followirg Preamble and Reso
lutions, and oblige our Chorch : -
Whereas, In the vicissitudes of an
eventful and tumultuous period of our
history, circumstances have transpired,
real or imaginary, which 'have caused
our beloved Pastor, the Rev. James K.
Mendenhall, thinking it best for the
prosperity of the church, and the good of
the cause he so much loves, to resign his
pastoral cares over us; thereby showing
a disinterested christian spirit, and a
magnanimity of purpose seldom exhib
ited, and cannot be too highly appreci
ated by us. Inasmuch as the said
Brother has servcd us so abl" faithfully
and successfully, in the dill"ce ent func
tions of Pastor, 3Minister and Sunday
School Teacher, during a term of five
years, accompanied with war, bloodshed,
demoralization and ruin, we should and
do, deeply deplore the separation, but,
at the same time we cu'ole ourselves
with the assurance, that the tie thus
severed, is only formal and official, and
not spiritual or christian, leaving us the
good hope, that it may eventuate in the
mutual benefit of both Pastor and Flock,
which will not diminish, but increase in
a brotherly love and esteem, that will
culminate above in heaven where discre
pancies are not known, and where per
fect bliss endeth not:
Therefore, be it Resolved, 1st. That we,
after ret'urning our sincere thanks to the
Rev. James K. Mendenhall, for his able,
faithful and thoroughly devoted exe-cise,
over us, as Pastor during the last five
years, do, although in much sympathy
-and sorror,. accept his resignati$n as
mecit and. proper.
2nd. That we will, ever with pleasure
and gratitud, retrospect his adsent
amongst us, as being nothing less than a
God-send to the needy, and his minis
tration as affording a green spot. and
one of the brightest pages in the history
of our church.
3rd. That we cheerfully recommend
the said Brother to any a?,t every chris
tian community, not only as being tho
r1ughly orth'dox, but as being an able,
zeali,, faithful and effeicut rninister of
the gospel of Christ.
4th. That we cordiallv invite him to
visit and pieach for us, at any and al
times, that may" suit his eonve;ience.
5th. That a copy of these pruceed
ings be furnished the said Brother; also,
that they be .publizhed in the South
Carolina Bapti t ; requesting tl:e New
bery"HraidI, please copy.
Done in Church conference and signed,
by order of the same, this Sth DJee. 1806.

MESSRS EDITOns-The distinguished ser,
vices of the iRon. E. S. Keitt, in the late
war for Southern independence,- and the
ibility he has displayed in his short career
in the Legislature of the State, eDtitle him
to the thnfks and gratitude of every patriot
in the land, and should be suitably rewara
led, by promoting him to a more extensive
feld of usefulness. No one who has read
his eloquent and statesmailike speech, late
ly delivered in the House of R presenta%
tives, can doubt for a moment his ability, I
patriotism and profound views of govern.
ment, which qualify him for the highest of%
fiee in the gift of the people, and point him
aut unmistakably as the proper person to
rescue the banner of the constitution from
the infidel hands which are now trailing it
in the dust, and restore it with its full quota
of stars to the position in which it was left
by the patriots and statesmen of the revolu%
tion. We have therefore taken the liberty,
without the knowledge of the distinguished
gentIeman, to nominate him as a suitable
person' to represent the third Congressional

mar.y friends and admirers by accepting the
nomination. Now is the time to have the
State represented by her brightest lights,
young men of ability, activity, e,ergy. and
a thorough knowleI e of the constitution
and government of the country, and all may H

DISTInuTIONS.-We would call rotention
to the opinion of one of the leading' papers
of Canada on this subject:
Most of our readers have no doubt read
some of the numerous advertisements - of
Gift Enterprises, Gift' Concerts, &c ,- which
appear from time', to time in the - public
prints, offering most tempting bargains to
those who will patronize them. In most cases
these are genuine bumbugs. But there are
a few re:pectable firms who do business in
this manner, and they do it as a means of
increasing their wholesale business, and not
to mak6 money. From such firms, it is true,
handsome and valuable articles are procured
for a very small sum, and what i< more im,
portant, no one is ever cheated. Every per
son gets good value for his dollar; becaunse d
as we have stated, it is intended to act as an T.
advertisement to increase their ordinary -
business. We have seen numbers of priz-s
sent out in this way by Sherman, Watson &
Company, of Nassau Street, N. Y., and
there is no doubt that some of the articles
are worth eight or ten times the money paid
for them, while we have not seen or heard
of a single article which was not woith the
dollar which it cost. But this is ouly one of
the exceptions of this rule, for as a general
thing the parties engaged in this business
are nothing but clever swindlers.
