The Jennings Estate in England, now waiting a claimant, is $40,000,000. The Legislature of Massachusetts have voted to authorize the enrollment of colored persons in the militia. The Governor of Kansas has decided that Indians may vote on the adoption of the new constitution. About two weeks ago a cargo of slaves was landed near Trinidad de Cuba. One of the inspectors, a young Creole, informed the government of the fact. That night he was assassinated in his bed. Mr. William Harding, of Cincinnati, offers to back Benjamin Smith, also a resident of Cincinnati, aged 80 years, to run a foot race with any man in the world of a similar age, one or iwo hundred yards, for the sum of 95,000. The Brandon (Miss.) Republican of the 18th, says two hands on the plantation of Win. I). Bibb, picked 1,005 pounds of ootton one day last week; one picked 505 and the other 500. On hill land this is decidedly good picking. Colonel J. Wooten, a few days since, disposed of the Natural Bridge property, to John Lustre, for the sum of 912,000. The i Natural Bridge, Rockbridge county, Va., next to the Falls of Niagara, is the greatest natural ouriosity in the United States. , At the last accounts flour was selling on the island of Hayti at two hundred and forty dollars per barrel! That looks like a "high price?but the money was Haytien currency, which is like our old continental money. About $20 of it are worth one silver dollar. -?TheNorth Carolina Military Institute, in this place, opened on Saturday last, according to published notice.

' The population of Rome at the high"est period of its power, has been estimated at 6,800,000. The present population of London is about 2,800,000. The entire population of Paris, including that of all its metropolitan suburbs, is about 1,500,000.? That of New York, estimated in the same ""way, is 1,100,000. The City Gas "Works at Wilmington, (Bel.) entertained a large party on the 2d inst, to "Witness the manufacture of gas from water, as a substitute for coal gas.

The Kennebec Journal says that a few years since the wife of the then American Minister to England received from a friend in New England a box of autumnal leaves, selected for their beauty and their variety of tints. The lady wore them as ornaments, and they attracted much attention, . ^pd were greatly admired by the English people. Since then these leaves have been in demand there, and every autumn pack% ages of them are sent over in the steamers. w Tho-. Keowee Courier of Saturday - jays : We omitted by accident last week a . report of the sale of negroes belonging to <..the estate of Elias Mullinnix, in this district r i'Twenty-one negroes sold, at auction, . for $19 ,705, being an average of about 8942. ?. There were in the lot two families, one confuting of a woman and two children, and .4D unsound woman, with two small children. A boy thirteen years old brought $1,500 ; and another, fifteen years old, sold for $1, -795. A lot of old corn was bid off at $1,41 per bushel, for the purpose of distillation. * The Scientific American speaks of a new invention for horse shoeing, designed to obviate the continual driving of nails in the hoof, by which great injury is some times inflicted upon valuable horses by unskillful workmen. A groove is made in the underside of, the common shoe, into which is fastened a piece of iron of the same width and shape as the groove, only thicker and slightly curved upwards, the junction forming a complete dove tail The advantage of this inner shoe, is that it is made to project " beyond the ordinary shoe, and when worn down can easily be removed and replaced by another without pulling off the shoe from the horse's hoof. We were gratified, yesterday, by a oall from Mr. W. W. Walker jr-, of the Columbia Courant. Mr. Walker's visit to Charleston was for the purpose of meeting Mr. Ashmead, the London Attorney, who was charged with the transmission of the necessary legal documents to Mr. Walker, relative to his English legacy. The chief papers were, yesterday, arranged before Robert Bunch, Esq., Her Majesty's Consul at this port. This visit of Mr. Ashmead to South Carolina will preclude the necessity of Mr. Walker's contemplated visit to N. York. For the full reoeption of the legacy, he will be obliged to visit London about the middle of December.

No damage, however, was done to vegetation. * DEPOT AGENT. At a meeting of the Directors of the King's Mountain Rail Road Company, on Monday evening last, Mr. S. Banks Meacham was elected Depot Agent at Yorkville, vice Jno. G.

In another column of to-day's issue, will be found the advertisement of the King's Mountain Agricultural Society. The affairs of the Society are under the management of praorical, go-ahead men, and from the interest manifested in its success, we anticipate the accomplishment of much good. . * ANOTHER PRESENT.

Byeus has left at onr office two unusually large ears of corn, each measuring fifteen inches in length, and weighing two pounds apiece. The corn was raised on up-land, and Mr. B. informs us that the two ears alluded to, are fair samples of the whole "patch." This corn is known as the "Walker" variety, and was produced on the plantation of Col. R. G. McCaw, six miles south-east of Yorkville. * THE CHESTER STANDARD. The Inst issue of our neighbor, brings the announcement of a change of proprietors. Mr. C. S. Brice is succeeded by Mr. E. J. McDaniel. Mr. McDaniel is a native of Chester District, and, if we mistake not, an ex-edi tor of the DueWest Recorder. We tender to the new regime the usual courtesies, and wish the retiring editor success in his chosen avocation. * TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received a batch of marriage notices and the announcement of a death from "A Friend." We probably have several friends, and do not know which one to attribute this favor to. We do not publish those things without a responsible name, and have put them in our "scrap drawer" for future consideration. "Madeline," aud "Lines to a Friend," have been received, and shall have early attention. * BATTLE OP KING'S MOUNTAIN. Friday last being the natal day of the battle of King's Mountain, the Cadets of the Military School, under command of the Principals and the other officers of the institution, paraded our streets.

It gives us pleasure to state to our friends and patrons, that on the first of January next, we have determined to enlarge the size of the Enquirer, by the addition of four columns, without any increase in price. We have been induced to this step by the constant pressure on our advertising columns, and in order to still furnish a fair proportion of reading matter. For the next year we have effected arrangements which will, we think, very much improve our paper, and render it more wortly the support of the people. The improvements which we contemplate, will necessarily increase our expenses, and we would request those who are indebted to the office, to "remember the printer." In a few weeks, we will issue our programme for 1800. * THE COURT. Our Fall Court is in session, this week?Judge | Withers, presiding. His Honor is conducting the j business with his usual energy and marked ability, I and in capital good humor with all parties concerned. The Issue Docket is very heavy, however, and an honest week's work will scarcely suffice to make an impression upon it. An Extra Term of the Court will be necessary, ere long. The State's Attorney did an unusually large business?whether profitable to himself, is to t>e 1 questioned. As these cases are confined almost j exclusively to the illicit traffic in spirituous liq- ] uors, they do not betoken an increase of crime ; i on the other band, we argue from these demon- 1 trations a spirit of vigilance and determination on the part of the sober, order-loving portion of our ] people, which is worthy of all commendation, and is sure to be productive of beneficial results. The Court will continue in Session, during the week. 1 THE JASPER LIGHT INFANTRY . At a meeting of this military corps, recently formed in Yorkville, Lieut. E. M. Law, of the Military Academy was elected to deliver an address before the Company on the 28th of June next. We observe by a paragraph in the Courier, that our townsman, Col. W. B. Wilson, has been selected by the Moultrie Guards, and the Palmetto Guards, of Charleston, to deliver an address before those two Companies on the same day. We congratulate our own and the Charleston Companies, in the choice each have made. * SONS OF TEMPERANCE.

The sales of cotton for the three days previous to the sailing of the Steamer, amounted to 21,000 bales?prices easier, but quo1 tations unchanged. Some authorities, however, say there is a decline on the inferior qualities.? Breadstuff's and Provisions are reported dull. By the arrival of the Canada, last week, we learn that the Arctic steamer Fox had returned to England -with intensely interesting information regarding the fate of Sir John Franklin's Expedition. It appears from the records and relict, that Franklin died in 1847, and the ship was abaudonded in 1848. A record, dated 1848, was found at Point William, signed by Captains Crozier ani Fitzjames, saying that the ships Erebus and Terror had been abandoned three days previous in the ioe, and that 105 survivors were proceeding by the Great Fish River; that Sir John Franklin had died on the 11th of June the previous year, and that the total deaths to that date had been nine officers and fifteen men. Many interesting relics were found on the western shore of King William's Island, and others were obtained from the Esquimaux Indians, who stated that after abandonment, one of Franklin's 9hips was crushed in the ice, and the other forced ashore. Several _ skeletons and a large quantity of clothing were found. A duplicate of the record up to the abandonment of the ships was also found. MERE-MENTIOW. Col. 6. W.

The harness averaged about $3 per set; flints 1 cent per hundred. All the candidates for the Legislature, in Warren county, Mississippi, have declared themselves for immediate southern action, in case of the election of a Black Republican President. "Hemphill," is the name of the new countv-seat of Sabine, Texas. It is named in honor of Senator Hemphill, a native of Chester District.

Many there be who more along as though death were pressing hard upon their heels, reaching forth his ice-like arms to clntch, and with his frigid breath to chill the very life blood of the heart, and nothing but the swiftness of flight, Bonld possibly, save them from the freezing embnot. They more in a perfect agony of haste. If spoken to, "can't stop I" or, if they do, are unable to stand still, for they labor nnder a continual fidget fever; yet, by a lengthy and flurried apology for haste, consumes twioe as much of their own invaluable time, and a great deal more of their friend's than it would require to speak and move with order and quietness. But, frequently they | "hav'nt time to stop," so hurrying on, just turn their heads?twist their noses over their should ere, address friends with a "hallo," and while in this graceful attitude, strike a clumsy foot against somo projecting brick, and measure their length upon the side-walk; or running-against the curbstone, tumble into the gutter below ; or pitching 'round a corner, kick a bright-eyed cherub orer, stoop, raise the little one up, apologize, and move on like a certain "professional," whom I once knew to run against a lamp-post, and being in too much haste to see what he had come in contact with, touch his hat, beg the supposed gentleman's pardon, and hurry on slyjng?'twas purely accidental ! Or, like a gentlemen, who, some years ago?long, long before the iron-horse had ever penetrated the heart of our dense forests, or rushed whistling, rattling, dashing along through our western wilds, affrighting by its giant snorts, and scattering whole herds of wonder-stricken deer and buffalo, and astounding the honest yeomanry of the country, and simple minded African fieldhands, by its shrill soreams, way adown the past, back to those days of the "good olden tinAe,'* when rail-roads were unheard of, and stage coaches were scarce, this gentleman, of whom I spoke, was called to a distant part of the country on business; and the long journey, in lieu of better conveyance, was obliged to be travelled on horseback. For several days prior to departure, all was "bustle, bustle, hurry and flnrry;" saddle-bags were packed, unpacked and repacked?papers were unbundled and rebundled, in order to be sure that nothing should be left which would be required for the negotiation of his business; at length satisfied that all was "right" he set out, and having journeyed over two hundred miles, reached the point of destination. On going to the saddle-bags and searching for his papers (without which nothing could be done) they were no* to be found?he had left them at home, and must perforce retrace his steps! Thus, the business which he was in such haste to despatch, was by that haste delayed for months; and our hatty friend, had the mournful satisfaction of riding over four hundered miles through the dreary wilderness on a "wild goose chase!" In the counting house, or in the Btore; in the political or in the social world, its all the same. They more about like a blustering whirlwind, helter-skelter, knocking things over, scattering them here and there, and making twice as much work for others as they themselves perform ; and taking twice as long as necessary for its accomplishment. Such folks, I presume, think they move upon the principle "whatever the hand findeth to do, do quickly!" Misguided people; they forget that by nervous haste and excitement, they retard instead of hastening the completion of their undertakings; which, at best, are generally, botched affSTrs. Wishing lo attain all?at once, they"secure nothing ! And thus furnish a very striking illustration of the proverb, "haste makes waste." Ambitious, they would have the world's good will and enjoy her honors, but cannot spare the time, or take the trouble to secure either. They act to-day, in a half way manner, and would realize the good of those actions at once. Forgetting that the seed planted in spring, must comup, and then grow and bloom through the sum mer, that it may ripen in autnmn; they sow to uaj umoug ruutj litres uuu ruugu oiuuco, miu would to-morrow reap a golden harvest of wheat. But it cannot be. Time and labor, are necessary, to secure the riches and honors of the world 1 Time, labor &Dd indomitable perseverance are the essential elements of success! Nothing is attained without the expenditure of sometime, some exertion and labor. An education, for instance, is not secured all at once?for, wandering through the vista of departed years, back to the early dawn, the sweet spring-time of life, the sunny season of childhood; we find ourself ensconced behind a snowy bib, with a southern primer in our hand, standing at the elbow of a kind warm hearted, Bchool-mistress, taking a first lesson, at the scholar's starting point of A, B, C. And so it is with all ? There we all commence, and by study and perseverance go up from one, two, three and four syllables, and so on. We might hie to the mart of every book auctioneer, spend thousands, and buy hundreds and hundreds of books, store our houses with them from the garret to the cellar, and unless they were studied or perused, could not profit by the information, however valuable, which they contained. Standing near me, on the table at which I write, is a vase which contains one of those exquisitely shaped, perfume-laden, queens of the flowers ; a large and lovely rose?excelling far, in the graceful blending of its matchless hue, the most artistio touchings of the painter's skillful brush. This beautiful flower did not become so all at once. It sprang first from a little seed, a tiny plant, and growing on, gaining strength and vigor, until the small plant became a full grown bush; next a bud was formed, which, drinking in vigor from the refreshing showers and health from the genial rays of the sun, grew larger and larger, fuller ?- u J and iuuer, uuili uic icavca vuui cuuaocu aw, ^iuu* ually parted and disclosed rosy tinted streaks of heauty between its emerald shield ; leaf after leaf expanded, until the blooming bud sprang into this full blown and perfect rose. We might place a choice plant in a hot house, and thus, perhaps, hasten its growth; and nine times out of ten, the plant is ruined. It requires both time and labor for the consumation of any thing that is truly great or good. So, as Longfellow says, in that gem of his, the Psalm of Life, Let uh then be np and doing With a heart for any fate, Still pursuing?still achieving? Learn to labor and to wait. Death of Col. Ilugh Miller.?We announce, with deep regret, the death of Col. Hugh Miller, of this town, which took place very suddenly, on Tuesday last, 4th instant. Col. Miller was no ordinary man. At the summons which the country sounded for volunteers in fhn MoTinnn TOftr V>? wan ftmntlir thn first tn enlist, and aspiring no higher than the ranks, he was among the gallant Palmettoes who acted a conspicuous part at the taking of Vera Cruz, and was among the cheerful few of the gallant band who proceeded to Alvarado, an unfortunate enterprise, gallant in conception but disastrous in result, planting the seed of disease among those who were fortunate enough to escape that desperate march. Our veteran Artillery corps was revived under his auspices. As captain, the whole military spirit of this regiment, to the command of which he was subsequently unanimously elected, was invigorated, and the old martial spirit acquired in the service, illustrated and exemplified. He s rved several times as Warden of the town, and two or three terms as Intendant. The order of the Sons of Temperance and the Masonic Lodge recognize him as among their most prominent members, he having several times filled the highest offices in the gift of both Orders. His remains were attended to tbeir last resting place by our whole community. The Artillery, Rifle Company, Sons of Temperance and Masons leading, and the citizens of the town and neighborhood joining in the procession. One .of the most affecting incidents of the last ceremonies, was the attendance of several of the veteran Palmettos of the Fairfield and Richland Companies, who acted as pall-bearers on the occasion. [ Winntboro' Register. Written for the Yorkvflle Enquirer. LETTER NO. 3. To Jessr, who it a Distiller, a habitual Drinker, and a Retail Vender of Spirituous Liquors, and, professedly, a Christian man: My dear Sir : Heretofore I have addressed you as a distiller, and a drinker of spirituous liquors ; I now address you as a retail vender of the same. 3. Of retail vending Bpirituous liquors. Dear Jesse: You do contend that it is moral in sight of God, for you and others to soil at retail spirituous liquors, to be consumed by men and women in habitual drinking. And 1, Because these are the products of your labor bn your farm in the same sense as is oorn, flour, bacon, cotton, &c. Ans.?Not so. I do concede it moral for you bIaaIiaI an/1 ranr arnriffl Ofl artlfilpfl nf merchandise adapted to supply the wants of men ] in some cnlinary uses, and in the arts, trades, c and medicine, &c; but, I do deny that either alco- 1 hoi, or spirituous liquors (raw spirits) are the t products of your farm-any more than is tanned leather. To sell whisky, &c., is to sell, not the 1 product of the farm, but of the Btill-house?of 1 chemistry; it is to sell the product of manufac- < tare, and not of agriculture. Nor is whisky, &c., < adopted to afford supply to the necessities of men, 1 to but a very small extent in culinary uses, and i in the arts and trades, and medicines; and not j at all when consumed habitually in drink, nor for i the sustenance of men as food and clothing are. I I charge, therefore, that your retail selling of I spirituous liquors, with the intention that these 1 be consumed in drink, even unto drunkenness, is i immoral: your guiltiness consists in your inten- i tion here. You do sell with the expectation?the < fall oonriction?the entire persuasion of your mind, I may even say with the certain knowledge that your sale will be consumed in drink, eren unto drunkenenss. Tour intention in this matter is most manifest in the facts. 1. That you do not deny the said intention. 2. Tou do advocate the morality of habitual dram drinking. 8. You do advocate the wholsomeness of drinking whisky, &c., for healthy persons, and its preventive powers over causes of disease, and its restoring power to a state of lost health. 4. You do know, that the consumption of spirtituons liquors here does far exceed the wants of man for culinary uses, and in the arts, and trades, and medicine. 6. Ton do know, or verily believe that the sarplus?will be ecnsamed in drink. 6. Tou do repudiate all Temperance societies, and total abstinence from drinking whisky, &c., as erroneous practice. 7. You never dissuade your customers from habitual drink. 8. Yon sell at retail for the sake of the profits in'dollars and in cents wnicn you gam thereby. 9. You do recommend your whisky as "the very thing" for drink, and yon call it "pure and good," free from all poisonous drugs to-hurt mankind in drinking iL 10. You do highly recommend your whisky, &c., as a good thing in its place, and that "the belly is the place for it." 11. Yon never do sell undiluted alcohol, but raw spirits only, which is almost exclusively consumed in drink. 12. You do make war on the restraint of the civil law, and the ballot box, in the matter of retail selling whisky, &c, to be consumed in drink. Now my dear Jesse, in view of all these things, the conclusion is irresistably pressed home upon my mind, that your retail selling spirituous liquors is done with the intention that these be consumed in drink, even unto drunkenness. Therefore, in so doing you are guilty of an immorality, because your intention is evil. 2. Here again you "lock horns" with me, and plead your right to sell your whisky, &c, at retail, irrespective of the uses or abuses to which it will be applied by purchasers, and thus deny your agency and responsibility in the ill results. Ant.?In your retail selling spirituous liquors, with the intention that these do be consumed in drink, even unto drunkenness; I hold that you are guilty of all drunkenness, man-slaying, and other ills which may fall out thereon, as accessary thereto. In this you have no right. In the interpretation of the moral parts of Scripture. "Principals include their accessories." The sixth oommandment is. "Thou shalt not kill." Exodus, 20: 18, and in Chap. 21: 29, we have a jjood case Ttrr tttostratlon. Here'IflS'saltT^'IT' the ox ' were wont to push with his horns in time past, and it bath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in; but, that he hath killed a man or woman, the ox shall be stoned, and the owner also shall be put to death." This is the doctrine. Here is a case, wherein the owner of an ox is found guilty of murderunder this law as accessory, through the instrumentality of his ox; and sentended to suffer death as though he had been guilty in his personal act. His ox was dangerous to kill men and women, and this his character to 'kill' had been testified to his owner, yet be had not kept him in close confinement, but let him run at large; and he "killed a man or woman." Now Jesse, apply this law in it's morality to your own case ; you are the owner of whisky, and, men are wont to drink it, and it is wont to produce drunkenness, and to "kill" men and women; you do not keep it in, but you do let it out on sale for drink. It hath killed men and women in time past, and you know it; yet yon do sell it out for drink. It hath produced drunkenness &c., &c., in men and woman, and you know it; yet, you do not keep it in, but let it out on sale, and it produces death or drunkenness, kc. Now I ask you: Who is responsible to the law ? You say the consumer is responsible; very well, he is the principal, but you are acetttory by your whisky, as was the owner of the ox by his ox; you are guilty here. , So also "the prinoes" were accessary to the drunkenness of "the king" Hosea 7: 5-11, and he who gives, or sells whisky for drinkis guilty of putting the "bottle to his neighbors mouth," and is guilty of his drunkennes, and his nakedness, and shame, and his shamefal spewings, &c. Hab.2: 15?17. Nor is this all. "Whenanysin is forbidden, sobriety is enjoined ; when murder is forbidden, deliverance is enjoined. Again. Where any duty is enjoined the contrary sin is forbidden, together with all actions which tende to it, so then, you are forbidden to do any act, which.toide to kill or promote drunkenness ; and you are commanded to save life and to do sobriety, and all acts which tend to promote these; otherwise, you are guilty under the law of God. 3. But Jesse, you say that spirituous liquors sold at retail for drink, is a lawful way and means of gaining wealth or livelihood, the same as is other merchandise. Ant.?Not so. Certain merchandise is known i to be contraband articles of trade by the law of I God. "The price of a dog, the hire of a whore, and price of blood,"are not allowed io be put in j the treasury of the Lord. Dent. 28: 18, Matt. 27 : 6. These are contraband ways and means of procuring gain in sight of God. I have already shown, that the retail selling whisky, &c., fordrink I is sin, and monies made thereby is sin?"the price of blood," therefore, it is contrabanded by the law of God. Again. In Exodus, 21 : 28, we read, "If an ox gore a man or woman, that they die; then the ox shall surely be stoned, and his flesh shall not bo eaten." Here, we have an "ox," a brute beast "stoned" to death, ' and his flesh" contrabanded as an article of food by gift, or sale for man.? Why? Because, he "killed a man or woman."? By the morality of this law, I hold the retail selling of spirituous liquors for drink, a contraband way and mean? to gain wealth or livelihood.? Why ? Because, in this sale, it hath "killed a man or woman." Moreover, the eighth commandment, is "Thou shalt not steal." Exodus, 20 : 16. Among some other things required by this commandment, is "a lawful calling and diligence in it." And among some things forbidden by this commandment, are "unlawful callings," and all "sinful ways of enriching ourselves." I have already shown the retail selling of spirituous liquors sinfuL 1. Because, a violation of the sixth commandment 2. Because, it promotes death and drunkennes. 3. Because, it is opposed to doing good unto all men, in sobriety. I now add 4th, Because, "diligence in it," has always proved disastrous to men, and good society, and the church, wherever, and whenever the retail seller has been diligent to sell, and successful in his sales thereof; high proof these that retail selling spirituous liquors for drink, is a contraband way to gain wealth or livelihood. / 4. Jesse, you do insist that our fathers did sell whisky, and at retail for drink ; and in their days it was an honorable calling, and we their sons are not ashamed to do what our fathers did. Ans.?True, Jesse, some of "our fathers" did sell atrotaii, spirituous liquors for drink?but not all; at all times some of "our fathers" bore testimony against this evil trade, as demoralizing in its effects on men, and hurtful in the church, and world. To what will we attribute the prevalence of drunkenness and suicide, and many murders among us now, but to the work of some of "our fathers ?" In their day they have entailed this evil on us, and learned their children to believe it right. 5. Jesse : You say, that "in their day, it was an honorable calling to se^l at retail, spirituous liquors for drink." Ans.? Inno a . \ v ., it right to ] tin ; nor has this trade ever been honorable in the jhristian churoh, the depositor^ of morals.? WhiBn, and where was this trade approred by the _ ;ood, as illustrious, noble, magnanimous, generous, conferring honor free of taint or reproach, ind honest ? I have shown it sin, and Main is a reproach to any people." It is for you, Jesse, to ? jhow this calling "honorable." I do deny it. j Ton also say, "we, their sons, are not ashamed v to do what our fathers did." Am. Alas ! alas! ? ind I am sorry for it. The hope of reformation ^ in you is just so much the less, as you are bar- v iened in this sin. I know you boast of having 1 is many on your side as hare the temperance men ^ 3n theirs. Numbers, however, are not the proof of a right, else the christian church had long since fal- E len to the ground. But, is it true that your side ^ 3f this question are so numerous ? I would say, y that the public sentiment here, and especially, of v the christian church, stands opposed to the honor- ? ibleness and morality of retail vending spirituous y iquors for drink. And why T Simply, because c the morality of the Bible is against it, and it is a ? ow down calling. I take it, therefore, that those A n whom the sense of shame for sin is not wholly j ost, and ashamed pnblicly to do what good men * ind the Bible disapprove. A 6. Bat, sir, yon say, "retail selling spirituous j iqnors, to be consumed by men in drink, will be ^ lone by somebody, and gains will be made there- jl )y, and I bad as well retail it, and make gains j ;hereby as another." J Ana.?Well done Jesse, I now perceive that the * morality of the thing is not with you the question i lere ; this I take it, you have given up. The J question with yoa is, "shall I serve the mighty ^ lollar, or the Almighty God?" Well, I close here g oy saying, "choose you this day whom you will J serve. If mammon be god, then serve him: but, ? if the Loan be God, then serve him" you oannot j serve them both. Nor can I reconcile your pro- I fession as a christian man with your practice here. J Dne of two things you are bound to do. 1. EU- j ther cease to distill, habitually to drink, atSRif^ ; sell at retail, spirituous liquors for drink by oth- 1 ers; or, 2nd. withdraw yourself from the society j of christians, and declare your allegiance to the \ devil and to his cause. Then will the line of demarkation be distinctly known, and the world will cease to reproach the church on your account. ( Otherwise, you are to the church, what Joab was , to Abner. 2 Samuel, 8: 27?an enemy in disguise. , Or, if you do continue to do these things, ana still remain a member of the church, I advise you to do them slily?secretly, and hypocritically; for ' even a hypocrite in this, is less injurious to the : church, than is the bold offender. But, rather a- ( bandon all these, and honor the profession you have made. NOBODT. " .* 4 ? A Mistake at to tht Cropi in the Wat.?It is j only right to give the views of a Western authori- j tv on a subiect of imnortance to all sections of the Union. We quote from tho St: Paul (Minn.) Times: "The East seems to have a very mistaken idea relative to the crops of the West. The leading New York papers persistently assert that more wheat and breadstuffs have been raised In the West this year, than for several years previous, , when the fact is patent, that in Ohio, Indiana, Iowa and Illinois, the frost and drought have ' greatly injured the crop, and from those States will be sent forward this year a much less supply ' than for the past two years. In Minnesota the crops are excellent?were never better, and we 1 are now able to export instead of importing. Still, , the fact that there has been a larger yield of Western produce in 1859 over previous years, Is by no meanB true. The ostensible object of these re- 1 ports is to induce fanners to send forward their arrain at a low Harare. This srrain will be stored away by speculators when the price will be advanced, and these speculators will realize handsomely on the rise. We do not hesitate a moment to give our opinion as to the best course to be puraued by our farmers. If they have borrowed money at 1, 2 or 3 per cent, per month, let them | dispose of a part of their crop at as early a period as possible, and get out of debt. If they are out of debt (as but few of them are), it Would be well to hold on until toward spring, as there must be an increased demand for grain ere the lapse of many months." Prom the Indian Land Chronicle. , The Afrlaan glare Trade. . A meeting of the citizens of the Indian Land, of York District, was held at Book Hill, on the 5th inst., when on motion of W. P.

Mr. John Henby: Dear Sir?In looking oyer your July number, I chanced to notioe a pieoe, in your "Editor's Drawer," entitled a "Remarkable Printer." Will you permit me to echo and reecho?"remarkable printer." John Milter was a "remarkable printer." Judging from your style of writing the comments upon the par&gragh taken from the Messenger, I suppose it ironical. I am, however, proud to say that I oanprove John Miller's acquaintance with the far-famed "Junius." Indeed, one of the letters from "Junius" to "Woodfall" stated, and proves the faots. The letter is as follow : "If Woodfall' feels any hesiUnoy in publishing these letters, please hand them over to John Miller of the Evening Post." Now I want it distinctly understood, that the Evening Post and the Advertiser were owned by the same person or persons. John Miller teas persecuted for the publication of "Juniue's" letters, and left England. He arrived in this country at about the age of eighteen, considered a number one printer for the times. * * Yours respectfully, In the "Ait preservative," E. S.
