AN ADDRESS.
Delivered before the Ififi/utinian Society
on the 35th of SItirember.
Delectable and supereffeminate
IT e a rep. j :?''Lend nic your ear?," for the
short space of uotime at all most hardly, and
I'll expatiate, substantiate, equivocate, prevaricate
and expluvicatc my ides right down
on your caput* as 'thick as brickbats on a
meetin' house,' in prose and rymcs about
matters, things and curious times. I appear
before you the very quintessence of good humor
and happiness. I'm as mild as a domesticated
giraffe, aod 'harmless as a thunder-storm
before bray deak.' I'm the individual
that superobstructed the extremity of
the North Pole with my old hat, to prevent
the winds from escaping and congealing your
liberality. My great, great Grandmother!

who confabricates fire and loveandcr way
down in the lowest pits of Mount Ve- j
snvious, and blows it out to warm the folks j
of Constantinople, the capital of the Lillipu- j
tians. I've got my broughten up in various j
places, but the most painful place I ever j
was brought up to was the whippin' post. I
aint got over it yet. My edification and larnin,
like myself, has been most wofully neglected,?therefore
I didu't rise before this
eonflugious confiugration, to exploficuate in
the hyporastical lauguage of a Milton, or in
the soul-shivering, gizzard-tickling strains
of a Washington, but in the melliflous excoriations
of Demosthenes when exploding
simultaneously on the William Mot Proviso
Bill.
I'de like very much to address your extemporaneously,
but as I'm just getting about
from a hard shake of the delirium tremendously,
I'll spoke rather outrageously.?
Excuse this little circunilocury phraseology
concerning myself, and I'll proceed to cuss
and discuss my subject somewhat philosofi
cally, categorically, graraattically, poetically,
logically, metaphysically, hypothetic-ally, hyperbollically,
hyperfilabustically, and to the
best of hypcrability. What I'm agoing to
speak about I'll allude to 'fore I get through.
0 ! that my pen were dipped in the dyes of
the rainbow?plucked from the wings of
some turkey-buzzard soariug aloft in some
atmospherical atmosphere, that I might explanify
all superflistic-uities, from Mathematics
and Geometricks up to these big polly
ticks; then down to the reason why a tad
pole's tail drops off when he turns to a hoppiu'
animal vulgarly called a b?cattle frog.
0, how my cogebontive cogebontation is
oogebontified when I think of Old Buck's
big kingdom. This is a monstrous country,
sartin; and we can lick the man that says it
ain't?kase nobody's gwine to say so. Haven't
we the largest mountains, the tallest
rivers, the fattest horses and the fastest women
of any people this side of sundown ??
We are the very bifuslicated old Harry to
fight, too. We whipped old England and
Great Brittaiu too, time of the Revaltionary
war;?then the skinflint Mexicans insulted
Uncle Sam's dignification?he became hluetonefied?sent
Old Kough and Heady on a
telegraphical telegraph 'lectrified with lectrifying
lectricity?he swam the Rio Grandaddy
and marched around the syllabubs of
Buenner Vister audlit over on the Mexicans
'like a thousand of bricks. What you reeken
he done when he got thar? Why he jist
simply, accidentally somehow or other on
purpose whacked off Sainty Anuy's leg, "and
as he plucked the cursed steel away" San
.Tehoakim ! how the Mexicans did run,?and
if General Scott hadn't been eating his soup
wouldn' have left a piece of 'era big as the
white of a nigger's eye. If Old Xebieanezzer
and Bigbelzebug was dead, we could
whin all creation afore breakfast and the
rest of mankind reuiediately afterwards. If
that ain't so, you can take tuy luoustaeho for
a chintz pasture.
You may ask why wo are such tarnation
fellers to fight. I answer in the language of
Byron:
' Bekase we stick to each other through thick ami
thin,
Like a lean tick to a nigger's shin.*'
Wc have had some circumf'erostical times,
sartain. You all do recognaciate the hypocrastical
time wheu the wheelbarrow of this
magnetieal Kepublican got scared at ll'ncle
Tom's Cabin'?run oft'?broke the axle tree
against secession, and somethiu* were gwyne
to bust, if Dauiel Webster hadn't grabbed
the wheel, and cried out in coullugiastic
tones of thunder, Wo ! you tarnal long eared
critter you, Wo! Onions now, and forever,
one and insuflt-rable. Wasn't be a hyperdoudronical
fellow.
Some folks say the Britishers can whip us
ou the waters. If I was a President, I'll
tell you what I would do?I'de stop up the
Muddissyppy ltiver, and cut a canal right
homologus through the Atlantic sea, and
drain it all into daddy's mill dam, and I'll

! Wouldn't we catch lots of fish ??
Then where the oceau use to was, I'de plant

"For instead of timidly drawing near

I'll be bamboozlified all over. We oughn't I

SOILS BEST SUITED FOR THE VARIOUS
GARDEN VEGETABLES.
A good many readers who are desirous of
forming a vegetable garden, are yet at a loss
how to prepare their soil to suit the various ;
kinds of vegetables they may wish to cultivate.
As some slight guide, yet reliable, so
far as it goes, we oiler the following:
Asjturn?flround should be light, yet
rich; a sandy loam well mixed with rotten
dung or seaweed, is recommended. A good ,
quantity of dung, trenched twelve or fifteen
inches below the surface, is right.
lirmis.?The bean is propagated to the ,
best advantage in a stiff, moist loam, with a
considerable proportion of clay, although ,
it will grow well on any properly prepared
gardeu soil. Mr. Louden gives the following
directions for its culture :
For early crops, one pint of seed will be
requisite fur every eighty tect ot row; lor
main crops two quarts fot every 240 feet
of row; aud for late crops nearly the same as
the early. Plant in rows two and a half
feet apart, for the smaller, and three feet
for larger; the small, if beans two inches j
deep, and three inches distaut in a row; the
larger three inches deep and four inches dis-;
tant in the row.
licit.?For a bed four and a half by
twelve feet, one ounce of seed is requsitc.? !
The soil iu which it naturally delights is a ,
deep, rich sandy, dry and light, rather than
moist. Transplanting will not answer where !
the object is a large clean root.
Ciihlxii/r.?Every variety of cabbage grows
best in a strong, rich, substantial soil, inclining
rather to clay than sand ; but it will
grow in any soil if it be well worked, aud
abuudantly manured with well rotted dung, j
Carrot.?The carrot requires a light, uiel-1
low soil, mixed with sand, and should be
dug or trenched one or two spades deep, !
breaking well the lumpy parts, so as to form ,
a porous bed and even surface.
(.'rt>ri/.?Celery delights in a soil rather
moist, rich in vegetable mould, but not rank 1
from new rotted dung.
Cucinnbir.?In our climate cucumbers
will grow iu any soil, though not with the
same degree of vigor, provided they be supplied
with a sufficiency of heat, light, water,
and air. It is an object with many market
gardeners and others, to produce cucumbers
at an early period, and for this purpose artificial
heat is necessary. For early forcing
"one-third of rich top spit earth from an
upland pasture, one-half of vegetable mould,
and one sixth of well decomposed horse
dung with a small quantity of sand.
Lrttw.?All the sorts grow freely on
any rich, mellow soil, where the sub-soil is
dry. For the most part raise this vegetable
as a principal crop, on beds set apart for it
and keep the varieties separate ; but to multiply
the supplies, throughout the summer,
portions may be sown thinly intermixed with
onions, carrots,and spinage, which will come
off before the lettuces arc fully grown ;
Mr/otiA.?The melon succeeds in any
strong, unexhausted loam, rich in vegetable
matter, with a mixture of sand, but not too
light.
Onion.?The onion, to attain good size,
requires rich, mellow ground, on a dry-soil. If
the soil be poor and exhausted, recruit it
with a compost of fresh loam and well consumed
dung, avoiding to use stable dung in
a rank, unreduced state. Turn in the manure
to a moderate depth; and in digging
the ground let it be broken fine.
I'artnij).?The soil should be light, deep, '
and free froin stones. It should be dug or
trenched before sowing, one good spade deep
at least, being careful to pulverize the soil
thoroughly, that the roots may have no ob- j
struction to prevent their running down long j
and straight. If the soil be proper for them,
if i? ??#!??] In*f mill rw\f rnriint*a

manure: and what is used should be perfectly
decomposed, or, if recent, be deposited
at the trench. They do not impoverish
the soil like onions.
Pais.?The soil should be moderately rich,
and the deeper and stronger for the lofty
growers. Peas arc not assisted, but hurt by
reduced duug recently turned in. A fresh
sandy loam, or road-stuff, and a little decoin- j
posed vergctablc matter is the best manure, j
The soil for the early crops should be very 1
dry, and rendered so, where the ground is '
moist, by mixing sand with the earth of the .
drills.
Hnilisli.?The soil should be light and ,
mellow, and well broken by digging. A ;
scattering of the smaller growing sorts may ;
be sown among other crops, such as spiuage, !
lettuce, and onions. It may also be drilled
between wide rows of beans, or on ground
iutended to be sown with a late spring crop.
Tnmalto.?To have an early crop, sow
the seeds in a dry and warm soil, and sheltered
situation, in October, aud cover during
the winter. For summer and fall use, i
sow again in May, and watei freely. The !
distance between the plants should rot be '
more than two feet.
Turnip?Sand or gravel, with a mixture
of loam, produce the sweetest aud best flavored
roots. It should be made fine and not
too rich, lest the turnips be rank and illtasted.
We have giveu these brief directions,
partly to call attention to the fact that the
season is approaching when ground should
be prepared, gardens set in order, seed procured
and everything made ready for a vigorous
gardening campaign?a campaign not
so laborious or expensive as a military campaign,
uor so detrimental and evil in its
consequence, for the fruits of it arc health,
the rich products of the earth, satisfaction
in enjoying the fruits of our labors and sweet
contentment.?h'eal Estate Kcnsler.
__
Caiie of Bees.?Bees should be cxatninincd
once a week all winter, to see if all is
riixht. This is much easier than to attend
to pigs, sheep and cattle three times a day,
which no good farmer complains of. What
is termed luck with bees is another name for
careful and skilful management.
Bra)1* When a nail or pin has been run into
the foot, instantly bind on a rind of salt
pork; if the foot swell, bathe it in a strong
decoction of wormwood, then bind on another
rind of pork, and keep quiet till the wound
is well. The lockjaw is often caused by
such wounds, if neglected.
Preservation of Books.?A few drops
of any perfumed oil will secure libraries from
the consuming effects of mouldiucss and
damp.
BST Experiment shows apples to be equal
to potatoes to improve hogs, and dicidedly
superior for feeding cattle.' '

"Who hath relieved our Report?"
?The temperance gospel has been proclaimed
for, lo! these many years, until its truths j
have been set before every one. Frutn the
mountain,from the valliesand from the plains,
nigh unto the sea, a bugle blast has been
heard at morning and evening, setting forth
he evils of drunkencss and the blessing attending
a life of sobrictv. The anguish of
half famished children have been painted !
again and again and bold up before the pub- (
lie eye. The degradation of the drunkard
has been faithfully set forth and his miser- {
able end recorded time after time. The
monster curse has been portrayed after every
conceivable manner. The subject has been ;
fully canvassed. The public has been j
thoroughly informed. The pulpit, the press
and the lecture room have each done a faithful
part in this great work. The truth has
been proclaimed long enough for the utmost :
depths of the public soul to have been stir-1
red. "Who hath believed our report?"
Alas ! not every one who should have believed
it. Like the soct'.-sowcr in the sacred
parable, some have fallen in barren places
aud yielded no fruit, while some have given
an hundred fold. Co into a promiscous I
gathering of the people, and you will soon
see who have believed and who have not.
There is a man standing at his cart with a
tin cup measure in hisliund, dealing out his
destrutivc agents to his fellow men, while the
! rabble increases and the coarse jests and profanity
grow more and more disgusting around
i him, ami reeling through the crowd the poor
drunken victims go to the gutter He surely
has not well weighed the matter in his
mind?he certainly has not properly rcgard!
ed his responsibility towards his fellow
I man. Evidently he has not looked at it in the
! light that the great body of temperance men
has i>ecn viewing it for the last quarter of
a century. If he has considered all these
matters it is certainly strange that lie docs
not abandon it at once. He has not believed
' our report.
There is another man?a man well to do
l in the world?a man who has long since re1
warded the tcmnerance cause, and has snoken
O - - - - l - , A
of it again and again as one of the grandest
| projects, aside from a christian church, that
j has ever been brought foward for the consideration
of moral men, and has always desired
i to be considered on the side of the cause,
though not exactly with it or of it. ile, in
, the midst of thissame promiscuous gathering
| of the people, so far forgets himself as to be
! seen at the tail of a contemptible whiskey
cart, in the act of bujir^ and drinking whis!
key 1 Now, this man has surclyforgott.cn
himself?he has forgotten pearly all he has
! ever said upontfie subject?he has forgotten
j how he has deplored the ruinous effects of
! general drinking and the whiskey peddling
! system; he has forgotten the scenes of
wretchedness falling under his own personal
' observation from the monster curse?he has
; forgotten his high social position and the influence
such an act on his part would exert
among his fellows. He has ceased to re:
member these things, or has played the hyj
pocrite from the first, and has not "believed
I our report."
. There is a young man with prospects of a
| brilliant future before him and rare promises
of usefulness to himself and others. lie has
been reared in the midst of light upon this
subject. lie has listened and has read. He
has been faithfully warned of the hidden
danger lurking in the intoxicating glass.?
Relying upon his own strength he ventures
! to taste, and the fetters of ungovernable apj
petite are beginuing to fasten upon him.?
i The danger has been pointed out to him hut
| he has not "believed our report."
j Aud there at the oubkirt of this same promiscous
gathering of the people lies the poor
drunkard, covered with filth and mud, and
I sleeping oft" his debauch in the most humili!
ating and degraded position that a man could
possibly place himself in. He has been fairly
warned by experience and friendly counsel.
lie stands on the last brink now with
the surges of a drunkard's hell beating against
it. He has not believed, and the last
terrible doom yawDs its darkness to grasp him.

NOTICE! YOUNG MAN.
We heard of an accident, the other day,
which we hasten to make public forthc benefit
of all young men who may feel interested
in the matter of matrimony.
At a certain church, after the services for
the Sabbath were concluded, a certain young i
man named John, stepped up to the side of
one of the most handsome girls in the parish,
to whom he had been paying "beautiful attentions"
of late, and politely requested the
pleasure of seeiug her home. Like a good
affectionate girl she granted the boon and
they started Filled with rapture by the
pleasant circumstances surrounding him, the
young man was thrown off his guard, and
being desirous of saying something particulary
fine and impressive, (it may have been j
a lay of love,) he turned his face towards j
his partner, (very close, as it doth often hap- i
pen,) aud whispem/ his ihrno/hl. Alas! it
was an unlucky whisper; for the same breath
that conveyed the confidential message, also
carried to the olfactories of the young lady
the fumes of whiskey ! Quietly withdrawing
her arm from that of her gallant, she stopped
in the path aud said : "Sir, you have been
drinking whiskey, and that of the meanest
sort?you, nor no other D'-mi-John, can go
home with me." And she tripped on her
way, leaving the poor whiskey lover standing
! with his thumb in his mouth completely
I "dumb-founded" at the sudden reversion of
i his prospects, while the jeers, the taunts and
j groans of the spectators fairly roared around
; him.
There are many young walking Demi
] Johns; and as the ladies everywhere are ne1
coming fast friends of temperance, and adopting
the motto of, "sober men or no husbands,"
we give the above publicity, that many
may see the danger they incur by loving
liquor better than their chosen lassie.
Spirit of the Age.
fl&Y* We once saw a young man lying within
a few feet of a whiskey cart, beastly
i drunken, and in a position and under circum:
stances by which his life was in immediate
: danger. Some kind gentlemen removed him
j to a place, out of danger, while the whiskey
i peddler, who had furnished the whiskey to
! make him drunken, stood by with his hands
: in his breeches pockets feeling the coppers
he had gathered that day. Why should he
i disdain to lay a helping hand and aid these
i kind gentlemen? Does the she bear cast
her offspring off and say, these whelps are
none of mine ? ?Spirit of the Age.

in saying to the public, that his Gins excel

HISTORY OF SOITVCAROLINA
be republished early in 1858, in two
TV large Volumes octavo, 550 pnges each Voluine,
printed on fine, white paper, bound in substantia!
cloth-gilt. It seems hardly necessary to
add anything to the above. Ramsay's History of
South Carolina is ayreut work; he hns an eye
witness, and participated in many of the events
about which he writes. We, South Carolinians
are too ignorant of our own history, and the Publisher
has undertaken the work with a view to
supply a demand which has been felt for some
time. The fact is, there is more interest felt now
in the History of our State, than ever was before.
AH accounts of our ancestors are now beginning
to wake up our minds to a lively interest. When
we see them braving the hardships of the desert,
overcoming every difficulty from a savage foe, and
meeting the stalwart Briton in a long, distracting,
and bloody war, we are pleased with every danger
they escaped, and wish to trace out the most minute
events of their history. Send on your name
early to the subtcriber.
I intend to get out the Work early in 1858.?
