Advertisements inserted at moderate rates; liberal deductions raado to those who" will advertise by the yoar. Reply of Judge Frost. We give on our first page this week the reply of Judge Frost to Mr. Paljihr, on fho subject of the Blue Ridge Railroad. As this is a subject of deep interest to our citizens generally, we need offer no apology for the space it occupies. -e> Haj. Perry's Letter. We publish on our fourth page a letter from the Hon. B. F. Pebry, of Greenville, on the political . aspects of the times. Want of time nnd space for? bids comment, but the reader is doubtless aware that we dissent from the positions assumed by the distinguished gentleman. Next week we may have 6omething to offer ia relation to this letter. -* Smyrna Campmeoting. This meeting commenced on Thursday last. On Saturday and Sunday it was largely attended.? Some of flic ablest ministers of the denomination preached, but what success attended their labors vre have not been informed. We hope to hear that many on that occasion enlisted in the cause of Christianity. Campmcctings are disfavored Ivy those who arc not prepared to enter iuto the enthusiasm that in? spires the truly pious on such occasions. Apart from the spiritual manifestations attending camp meetings, we are in favor of them becuusc of the social advantages they afford. -o Repeal of tho U3ury Laws. This subjects now eliciting some discussion in business circles. There arc those who favor a re? peal of thesc laws, because';hey say that the mon? ey holder ought to be allowed to make the most of it, as he would other possessions;. We think this argument, if argument it can bo called, more specious than solid. Let us iuqnirc, in the first place, why interest is demanded at all, "since money is naturally barren." Suppose that there arc ten millions of dollars in the District of An? derson, and it is put at interest within 'its limits, how much money will there be in the District twelve months hence, supposing at the same time . that all communication is prohibited with any oth? er portion of the country ? There cannot by any possibility be mote than the amount put at inter? est. Then by loans the amount of money is not increased. The Mosaical law proceeded upon this principle. The Jews did not exact interest of their countrymen, but of strangers. The former .could not make the country richer, tho latter poli? cy did. There arc two reasons why a moderate rate of interest should be allowed: '? First, the inconvenience of parting with it for the present, and secondly, the hazard of losing it entirely." Experience proves that our rate of interest an? swers these reasons. Very few hold their money when they can get it into good bauds at seven per cent. They guard against the liax;;rd of losing it entirely by demanding good security, and thereby get seven per cent, for the inconvenience of part? ing with it for the present. If he choose to lend it for less than 7 percent, no one has a right to compjaw?>*fcelRW does not prohibit it; but on the contrary will not enforce a contract for more than ? the legal rate of interest, because it savors of op? pression, making those who are rich, richer?those who arc poor, poorer. It is argued by some that the amount of money iu circulation would be greatly increased if the law would increase or protect a greater rate of interest?that it would be diverted from agricultural and manufacturing purposes?that money holders would convert these interests into money and lend it. The law has wisely provided against such a change. Eve? ry State knows it to be her interest to encourage these pursuits, because they are the foundation of every~intorcst. Another argument is, that it would prevent our Banks from carrying their money into other Stafes where they can get more for it. We contend that this is the Jewish policy, and. the only policy by which our State can be en? riched by lending money. If you abolish our usury laws, those who have money will hold it to get the very largest price?it will remain in their coffers, not yielding them any profit?the couu try will be deprived of the benefits of its circula? tion. Suppose the contrary.?that it is borrowed by merchants or any oilier speculators, it will have the effect to increase the value of the articles speculated upon, thereby not redounding to the' seller or the consumer or the lender, should he happer to be the consumer. Wc think the inter? ests of a majority of our citizens would be injured by a repeal of the usury laws; therefore, wc op? pose it. At another time wc will discuss the sub? ject more at length. -?i? lor the Intelligencer. Messrs. Editors : As every event has, or should have its chronicler, I propose giving you a brief outline of the proceedings at Smith's Store on Thursday last. It was a day set apart for the re? view of the upper Regiment of Cavalry, and right - nobly did the old regiment acquit itself. Much to our surprise, (for we had uiiderstoood the Cavalry | was upon the wane,) there was a fine turn-out of both officers and men, and if the spirit manifested by all upon that occasion is any index to the pub? lic mind, we predict that ere long this regiment will become stronger than it has ever been. The new Company recently started at the Five Forks was out in strength, and bids fair, under the com? mand of Captain (late Col.) Pickons, to become one of the best drilled Compares in tho Brigade. After performing numerous evolutions, to (he en? tire satisfaction of the reviewing officers, the Reg? iment was addressed by Brigadier General Griffin in a neat and patriotic speech, which elicited from those addressed great applause. Maj. S. D. Good lett and Col. Emmet Seibles, candidates for Major General of this Division, were in attendance and acquitted themselves handsomely. After the re? view, the crowd collected around the house, when Col. W. S. Dickons, announced that it was the de? sire of those present that the candidates for the Legislature should express their views upon mat tors and things in general, and in accordance with this announcement each of the gentlemen alluded to addressed the Company. Wc do not design uo ticiug their speeches further than to say they were all of one mind as to the imminent danger which threatened the South, and differed in no way as to the remedy for the threatened evil. Their speech? es were well received by those who heard them, and wo have no doubt that ca- ii and all of them made friends who will remember :ii"m ou the sec? ond Monday of October. Harmony a ad goodwill seemed to prevail generally throughout the day, and at a proper hour tho crowd dispersed quietly and in order. . CAVALRY. Disunion. When disunion is tho subject of our calm and reflective moments, it presents to our minds a more gloomy picture than when viewed in the heat of discussion. But by a frequent recurrence of the most terrible thrcatcnings, they may cease to be regarded. Wo suspect that such is the feeling of our people. They have heard the sound of disunion, until they regard it as empty menace, or as something in the distant future. It is time the South should cease to regard it in this light. She should be made to feel that such a state of things will soou be upon us, unless she can consent to sacrifice her interest and her honor. If she will stand upon these, a dissolution of the Union is in? evitable. The doctrine that the North, when she sees that we are in earnest, will retrace her stens, is false and hollow. The North has the control of this government, which leaves the South without any means of protecting herself against encroach? ment and oppression. At the formation of the Constitution there was a balance of power between the two sections, but by tho influx of a foreign population Lnto our country, which settled princi? pally iu the non-slaveholding States, her popula? tion is much larger than that of the South. By a series of usurpations she has becu robbed of her just proportion of the territory acquired by the United States. The ordinance of 1787, by winch j Virginia ceded the Northwestern territory, had the effect to exclude slavery from all that country which lies between tho Ohio and "Mississippi river, now embracing six- States. The next measure was the Missouri Compromise, which excluded the South from that portion of Louisiana which lies North of 3?? 30', excepting what is included in the State of Missouri. By the same species of legis? lation, Oregon and California were lost to us. By each of these accessious, the power of the North has been increased, until now she has the power to control this government. With a majori? ty iu both houses of Congress, without regard to the Constitution, by a species of unjust and op? pressive legislation, they arc tightening the chains upon us. Connected with this increase of popula? tion and Stales, the system of revenue and dis? bursements of tho F?deral Government has opera? ted as a grievous wrong upon the South. In 1832 South Carolina, with a lofty spirit of patriotism and regard for State Kights, nullified the Tariff of that year. By n manifestation of manly resis? tance, site succeeded in getting a modification of that odious system of taxation. In 1852, the question of Secession was upon us.' On the 30th of April of that year, South Carolina, in Conven? tion, passed an ordinance declaring the right of a State peaceably to withdraw from the Union. The question of separate State action was then before the people. South Carolina then awaited co-ope? ration, and the consequence was a want of action on the part of the South, until now the abolition party is strong enough to elect a President, and the grave question is presented to us, whether we will submit to Black Republican rule, whose avow? ed purpose is the abolition of slavery in the States. Will the South, will South Parolina submit? Her interest and her honor forbid it. If she sub? mit, let her prepare to wear the chains of slavery, and to listen to the last expiring notes of the fune? ral requiem of the institution of African slavery. In the event of the elevation of Lincoln (o the Presidency, the slaveholding States, possessing a like interest upon the subject, should meet in council and devise means to restore her lost rights in the Union, or to dissolve the Union and estab? lish a Southern Confederacy. The North has a predominance in every department of the govern? ment, and-she will never yield it without a strug? gle. The South must act, or the only alternative left for South Carolina is separate Slate action. She says the South must not submit to be ruled by a Black Republican President. * Then ou^ht she as a part of flic South to submit? We answer no! It is nobler to make a struggle for our rights, though we lose thctn^lian to have them taken from us without an effort to preserve them. By separate State action we cannot make our condi? tion worse; it may be the prelude to the inaugu? ration of a more glorious future. Site could not in such an event be forced into submission. Hear Gov. Let eher: While I live, no Federal troops shall march across Virginia against a Southern State in arms for the defence of its sovereign rights, and its equality in the Union." We be? lieve this would be the feeling of every slavehold? ing State iu the event of the separate action of any one of them. If- our rights arc ever to be re? garded in the Union, if au equilibrium is ever re? stored between the North and the South, it must be done by the co-operation of the South, or a rup? ture brought about by a conflict between the Gen? eral and a State Government or Governments. -0 Census.

Editors: It was with pleasure wc acciden? tally stumbled on ft copy of the Intelligencer, and altt.ough you have stated miyour salutatory that it wotdd be unreasonable to make it a criterion of the future, vo, in all candor, must think it comes up to the standard of newspapers generally, aEd if your future numbers are edited with the sainccarc and. ability, wc do not think your patrons will have any cause for censure, but will be amply repaid for th3 small investment necessary to become a subscriber; We always hail with pleasure and de? light the establishment of any journal that has for its end the dissemination of true and useful knowledge, and regard it as a bright era dawning upon the destiny of any country. Wc know of no better vehicle for the diffusion of general in? telligence than newspapers, and no family should be destitute of them, at least as many as they are able to subscribe and pay for. All children more or less arc foud of reading newspapers, and there? by often acquire a taste for literature. Then, we regard any district or country as highly favored thai can boast of good substantial papers. We would observe in this connection, that edi? tors, like school-teachers, arc accountable beings, and wc know of no class of men that have it in their power to exert such an influence over their fellow-beings. In proportion to the power which individuals are called to exercise over the affairs of others, is the degree of accountability to which they subject themselves ; and you, Messrs. Edi? tors, arc in a great measure entrusted with both public and private safety. Like sentinels on the watch-tower, you have it in your power to warn us of approaching danger, and in a great measure to avert new and dangerous innovations. To in? culcate morality, and, in short, to instil within us an ardent love of the true, the beautiful and good. This, gentlemen, is your mission, a nobl" and re spansiblc one, and we have no doubt but the ex? pectations of your friends, in the task you have assigned yourself, will be happily realized. It is true you have launched out when political seas run high?at a time when the political clouds are dark and lowering, and when, it is feared, the fury of the storm will not abate until dissolution hns taken place. Never was there a time when this mighty fabric, which was founded by the bravery of our ancestors, united and cemented 1>\ their common blood, was in more danger of being overthrown. It is tottering on its very founda? tion. Never was there more discord in "any gov? ernment, and in ilie language of Holy Writ, a house divided against itself cannot stand. As much as it is to be regretted, wc can but think, unless wc gel our constitutional rights under the government, it is our sacred duty to declare the government an cud. Wo were told by our leading men South that the Great National Democratic par? ty was the only one that could save the Union. That party has burst asunder, never again, 1 im? agine, to be united. One plank on their platform proved rather unsound. Those Northern and Northwestern democrats professing to be great lovers and allies of the South, and yet would re? strict her rights with the principle 'of Squatter Sovereignty. Wc had the pleasure of attending the Convention in Charleston, and of becoming acquainted with several delegates from the North, and on one occasion wc heard them say that at heart they believed slavery was a sin. Being thus opposed to our institutions, they are not fighting our battles witli pure intentions, and there is no dependence to be put in them. The doctrine of anti-slavery is inculcated in them from their earli? est infancy. Ere the tender babe can lisp its mother's name; horrid pictures, representing all manner of cruel and barbarous treatment of the planter towards his slave is shewn it. The orator denounces it from the stump; the clergyman from the pulpit, and how can we expect anything belter from them than Virginia Raids, John Brown mas? sacres or Texas troubles. It wns the opinion of our lamented Calhoun that .the slavery question was the only one that could ever dissolve the Union : and with what rapidity has abolition sentiments increased. When it was first agitated, it was a mere speck upon the hori? zon, with apparently but few advocates; it has moved on, however, conquering and to conquer, until it has obscured and polluted almost the whole Northern firmament. It is true there are a few bright constellations with some satellites that still icciu to shine pure ami unsullied?standing out in bold relief amidst the dark clouds of the gathering storm?but they arc like angel's visits, few and far between. The Block Republican leaders have declared that slavery must and shall be abolished, and say to their followers, you and I must do it, ami their sentiments arc re-echoed throughout the width and breadth of the Free Stales. Their doctrine is, that there must be no more slave Slates?it must be confined to its present limits. In our humide opinion, what makes matters more alarming, is that the clergy and thoseprofes sing Christianity have taken the mailer in hand. Abolitionism mixed up with religion I It needs no sag? to predict tho direful consequences which may ensue. Only reflect how much interest the ministers of the Gospel and the professed Chris? tians manifested in the Kansas difficulties?with what, liberality they swelled the subscription list in arming and equipping their men for the con? flict. Remember how solemnly tidied the bell? how sacred the day was kept?how many splendid eulogies were pronounced upon (heir illustrious martyr, John Drown, the day his spirit took its flight to give an account at the Dar of God for the hellish plot he had contrived, sot on foot, and part? ly consummated. Remember all these, with many other dastardly tricks, and then say that abolition? ism means nothing. With their underground rail? roads they have stolen our negroes and transport? ed them to a clime where they have become the most abject and degraded beings the sun ever shone on; many of whom are destitute of the ac? tual necessaries, let alone the comforts of life?in a climate not congenial to his nature, chilled by the intense cold, he is left, un car red for, to wither and die of hunger and cold. And in this awful situation they arc placed through the sympathies of their Republican friends, and who, wc arc told, alter locating them there, have not chanty enough to proffer them a meal's victuals, although upon the point of starvation. No. the true condition of the negro is slavery, and as for the morality of it, slavery is coeval with the world. We have abundant Scriptural proof of the fact. For instance, wc point, to slavery among the Hebrews; it was no sin iuthem, because it received the sauction of the Almighty. The Hebrews held slaves from the time of the con? quest of Canaan, and Abraham and the patriarchs many centuries before. The good old Abraham, whom God so loved, the father of the faithful, noted for his piety and good works, 'tis said owned over a thousand slaves. The Mosaic institutes not only recognized slavery as lawful, but gave minute directions for its regu? lation. They were regarded as property, and to be hereditary, transferable, &c. Do we not find in one of the Commandments this right of property is recognized : "Thou shall not covet thy neigh? bors house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man servant, nor his moid servant, j nor bis ox, nor bis a,'i3,Jnor? anything that is thy neighbor's." Where can you find on the globe a happier race of human beings tli an our Southern slaves ? a more cheerful, contented race of people, except some few who have had the misfortune to have lis? tened to the syren scngs of the infamous yankee, who have whispered in their ears a good time com? ing. It has been truly said that the negro has no bet? ter friend than th:i Southern master. As some yankee remarked in i letter to his Northern friends, there was three things inost of Southerners would l'ght for: Call him a liar, insult a lady, or abuse his negro. There may be some isolated cases in which the negro is not as well cared for as he ought to be, but the y are few. Southerners not only treat their ncgioes well from attachment, but tiny arc interested in doing so : they are proper? ty, und the better you feed and clothe them, the more fatigue they will undergo. Interest, duly and attachment all combine to have them well cared for in sickness. How different the case with Northeim laborers. Servants, of whom there are thousand.! working for what the negro gets? what they can eat a id wear. When disease over? takes them they have no friend to administer to their wants, even their rations stop, no one to re? munerate the physician, his employer feels no in teSi at stake, and if he dies, he is unwept, uncared for; and when old ige overtakes him, he must hio to the poor-house, or be subjected to the charities of tiic world, which is a cold concern. We know instances in our owa country of persons that know not when they finis 1 one scanty meal from whence the next will come, Cannot bear the idea of a poor-house, too proud to beg, too honest to steal, and too lazy to work. The negro, after he be? comes incapacitated for labor, is well provided and cared for; and if In: lias been anything of a faith? ful servant, the mont of masters have benevolence enough to treat the n witli the most humane con? siderations so long as lifo last. Then, we must conclude that slavey is not wrong, but right and proper: and also that our system of slavery is t he best one in existence. We say in existence, for it exists in all countries in some shape or form. Southern slaves cnoy many anil more privileges and luxuries than t abolitionists are aware of. They arc all privileged to attend the worship of God, and frequently make zealous Christians, and it is not uncommon to sec them rigged out in costly ar? ray, and even sjwting fine jewelry. They have their holidays through the year, and allowed the liberty of cultivating a crop for their own benefit, j Sonic of them maki) pocket change by little trades i peculiar to themselves, such as the manufacturing J of baskets, collars, brooms, &c, and it is not un? common for them to have accounts with our mer? chants to the amount of ?">0 or S100, which is set? tled punctually at the end of the year. And yet, in the midst of u.l this peace and contentment, (for they ore'happy ami jovial) the abolitionist, the destroyer, comes to change their paradise into a hell. With seductive language, he steals him off, and convoys him into a clime where, as past history plainly shows, the poor creature regrets tlie change, and often wishes for the comforts of I his master's cabin. We have never known an in? stance of any Northerner who has visited the South and become acquainted with her peculiar in? stitutions, but what 1ms admitted slavery was a mutual blessing, who was not biased by prejudice Bui the misfortune i ?, the masses are ignorant of the system. More anon. PRAIRIE BIRD. -O Fo,' the Intelligencer. Exhibition at Cool-Sjring Academy. Messrs. Editors : It is not. our disposition to trouble the press with an account of every meet? ing that may be held in this or that locality in our district, for wc know that they are uninteresting to the general reader. Tito exorcises at Cool Spring Academy, which came off 0:1 hist Thursday, were of so interesting n character, so creditable to the pupils :i$fo to the teacher, Mr. Samuel Wake field, that you must indulge us in a brief allusion to them. The Academy i:i located in that portion of our District known as the HlaUSettlement," a wealthy and prosperous.suction, whose citizens are moral, religious, intelligent and refined; and wc are glad to know that tiie^ arc friends to education. Mr. Wnkefield lias a flourishing school, is very popular, and a thorough instructor, so far a* wc could judge. The various classes iu Mathematics, Latin and Greek, stood 'he test of criticism better than some olasscf: in college that we have heard iu our day. The examination occupied the forenoon. After doing full justice to the ample dinner provi? ded by the liberal citizens of the vicinage, the Reg? imental Band, which was iu attendance, summoned the audience to tho arbor tu hear the speeches of the students. We cannot particularize, but can honestly assert lli.it each speaker done well, and | gave evidence of good training in the popular art; some of them, by Demos tlionian perseverance, may attain eminence as orators. When the studeuts were done, Mr. Wnkefield delivered an address upon the training of youth. The matter of his speech was very suggestive, and though the speaker was little used to public speak? ing, he went through with his address in a pleas? ant manner. After a stirring piece from tlie band, the orator of the day, J. C. C. Feathcrslon, Esq., was in? troduced to the tudiencc. To say that wc were pleased with t ic address of Mr. Fcatbeiston, would be the truth, but it would not fully express our estimate of it. Although the occasion was one of common occurrence, and the theme a stereo? typed one, Mr. I'catherston made that admirable hit in a public speaker?he well adapted his re? marks to tho occasion and the audience, and was heartily cheered. His thoughts were certainly fresh and genial, clothed in elegant language, and were well deliv? ered. True, Mr. Feathers! 011 has not spoken long enough in public) to feel perfectly easy, but he has a good voice, and with training will makj an effec? tive speaker. The next, and last speaker introduced was Col. Warren D. Wilkcs, of whom as a speaker and thinker we need say nothing by way of commenda? tion, lie spoke in his usual impassioned style for three quarters of an hour, amid the plaudits of the audience. It was matter of universal regret that Major John V. Moore, who had been invited to speak, could uot be present, having to attend the muster at Smith's Store. Thus passed a day at one of those good old fashioned Exhibitions, which were so common and entertaining in the days of our youth, but which are so rare now. The brush arbor, the antiquated school-house, the capacious satchel, the well thumbed text-book, the birch rod, the ball-ground, and the faltering tongues of youthful orators, all, all reminded us of times that have passed away, but arc fondly remembered. PINK. -* Dentistry.?We ask the attention of readers to the card of Dr. R. M. Frost, late of Charleston, who has located in our midst for the practice yf his profession. His office is on Granite Row, immodi atoly over E. W. Brown's. "LOCAL MATTERS. Sad Accident.?Wo learn that on last Thursday cveninjr a fatal accident: occurred at Thalian*Acad cmy, 18 miles above this place, resulting in the death of a negro hoy, the property of Maj. G. W. Co.v.von, of this District. The particulars, as vre bWc heard them, arc as follows: There was an Exhibition at the Academy on that evening, concluding with a dialogue, in which it was necessary to make use of a gun to properly carry out the respective parts. Accordingly a gun was cent for at a neighboring residence, and both barrels being loaded, the negro who was scut on the errand was told to discharge it before he got to the Academy, which he did by firing only one bar? rel, not understanding, perhaps, that both were loaded. The young men engaged in the dialogue , were not apprised that the gun contained any load, aud one of them, Mr. Leaxder W. Deco, was just about pointing it at his opponent, when by pure accident the remaining load was discharged, lodg? ing in the breast of the first-named negro, who was seated on the rear of the platform witnessing the performances. For a moment we are told that the audience remained seated, supposing that it was only a discharge of powder, but when it wits dis? covered that some one had been shot, the confusion was great. The negro died in about four hours, suffering the most intense pain. He was about 14 years of age. We regret that the evening, which had been the occasion of so much enjoyment to the large number assembled, should have closed amid such gloom. Palmetto Riflemen.?We are highly gratified that the appeal we made in our first issue in behalf of the formation of this corps, was not altogether in vain, and that the spirit necessary to its success has been re-awakened with some of our young men, who arc determined to organize speedily, if possi? ble, and have the Company in full blast at an early day. Let others emulate their example at once, and we shall have no delay iu reaching the desired object. Those who wish to participate in the organiza? tion of the Company should hasten to enrol their names, as it is confidently expected that a sufficient number will be obtained within a fortnight to cull a meeting for that purpose. It will be recollected that the uniform is to be of Southern manufacture entirely. All other particulars can be obtained, as we have before stated, by calling at die office of W. W. humfubevs, Esq. Glad Tidixus.?The religious revivals, noted in our last issue, nrc continued. Meetings in the Baptist and Methodist Churches arc in progress at this time. There have been more accessions to the church. The people of Cod have labored zealously in the cause, aud verily, it has not been without reward! Rakukb-M's.?If you want to be shaved, have your hair dressed, or otherwise ne d assistance from a professor of the Tonsorinl art, .ve need only refer you to Rolicrl*. whose card is elsewhere. W? have often heard strangers commend him for his ! skill and dexterity, and will add our repeated ap? preciation of kite remark. Anderson Military Academy.?We have been requested to state that the students of this institu? tion will declaim in the Court House on Friday evening. The public generally, and the ladies es? pecially, are invited to be in attendance. Axdkbsox Tboop.?Members of this Troop are directed to au order for parade at Haynie's. -1*?. For the Intelligencer. Messrs. Editors: Vou will please insert in your paper the names of the following gentlemen who will be supported for the position of Intendant and Wardens, at the next election, for the ensuing year: For Intendant.

COTTON*.?There is only a slight change in the market since our last report, which is an improved demand and a consequent small increase in the transactions. The sales of the week amount to 801 bales, at prices ranging from 0 (-? 12 o. We again omit quotations, as the transactions in the belter grades have been too few to give a reliable criterion of the market, particularly with the present re? duced stock. ??kmww?^m imii riiTfinBrniTMiMwwwnririrTTTTir AitIv.-iIh fit the X-Totds* For trrck ending Aug. 2-">, 1800.
