TUE'TBOUBIIE SICKLES is MAKING FOB
Us.-The N?w York World is showing
.be folly of sending such a man as Sickles
o Spain, at so critical a conjuncture as
.his. It says:
"Sickles is an arrant demngogue, and
,vh a i is worse, a demagogue with a lost
?haracter to redeem; and ho fancies that
mampiouing tho cause of the Cubans is
:he most promising expedient for catch
ng applause. While, in his official
iction, he cannot go beyond his instruc?
tions, he has borne himself in such a
aaa oner as to provoke a great outburst of
jel 1 igereut feeling, and has demonstrated
iia ntter unfitness to be the agent of a
pacific policy. Wc have all along pro?
ust ed against the Government sneaking
Into a war with Spain; and of all mean
ways of sneaking into a war, perhaps thc
most objectionable and cowardly, is by
sending an offensive minister with friend*
ly instructions. The Administration
Lires not avow that it means anything
ort peace; but it selected a minister who,
in spite of prudent instructions, has
proved to ba a fire-brand."
AB to the Cubans, the World has nc
lou ht but the American people wish their
success, at the same time that nine oui
of every ten among us wonld deprecate!
war with Spain. In suoh a war, tho edi
tor thinks we wonld, of coarse, conqaei
Cuba within three months, and shouk
nerer give np tho conquest; but as Cab?
Ls certain to fall to us in time, withon
war, (it is added,) there is no good reasoi
why we should desire its immediate an

In tbe good old days of Deniocratit

purity of ovotive. which had no othor de

the Herald, ' 'Mr. Boutwell is not guilty

General suItlcn' rWotc so thcSpnntah Go?
"An Occasional Correspondent" of the
London Times, writing from Madrid on
September 15th, say?:
"General Sickleb' note is a long docu?
ment, and, though couched in the most
respectful and considerate language, is
full of remonstrances and appeals which
are rarely ..ecu in official comm mi i en?
tions between friendly powors. With
some people there is nothing liko plain
speaking, and the American Govern mont
seems to have thought BO of the Spa?
niards, for the note is ia reality a dress?
ing such as Spanish pride never received
before. I am not qnite euro that it does
not go a little too far in this respect, or
whether the Government at Washington
would have ventured a similar noto to
any other power but Spain, which she
knows in no position to resent it, consi?
dering the work she has now on hand in
Cuba, and the desperate state of publio
affairs in the Peninsula.
"Gen. Sickles reminds the Spanish
Government of the scrupulous manner
iu which tho Government of the United
States have hitherto obserred the laws
of internatioual neutrality, and of tho
pains they have taken to put down and
prevent fillibustering, as a proof of their
reluctance to ombarrass Spain in tho ef?
fort to retain her ancient possession. He
argues that if they bad acted upou recent
precedents laid down by some of the na?
tions of Europe, they would have recog?
nized the Cuban insurgents as belliger?
ents long ago, for tho latter bad managed
to resist for over eleven months all the
forces Spain had been able to bring
against them to reduce them to allegi?
ance, and over which forces they had
gained at times somo considerable suc?
cesses. He hints at the fact that, with
two-thirds of tho island in the power of
the revokers, they ought hardly to be
styled rebels or insurgents, but that they
ought to bo looked upon as a peoplo
struggling for their independence. He
alludes to the growing force of publie
opinion in the States in favor of recog?
nition-an opinion tho Government may
find it impossible to restrain, Seo.
"But tho most serious part of bis note j
is his allusion to tho manner in which,]
the war is and has for some time past ?
beun conducted. He condemns ia utrong
lauguage the cruelties and barbarities of
the military executions, always summa?
ry, and ofteu without due inquiry. Ho
tells tho Spanish Government that thc
Cubans, even though they be in revolt,
are bravo mun struggling foe freedom
from thirty years of colonial misrule, and
their treatment when the fortune of war
throws them into tba hands of the go?
vernmental forces, ought notto be such
as to shock humanity, but such ns befit?
ted tho rulers of a great country. He
cites tho case of American oitizeus, fre?
quently non-combatants, who on mero
suspicion have been executed, and parti?
cularly two who were lately shot at San?
tiago de Cuba without any form of trial
whatever. Ho suggests to the Spanish
Government that they should not be hard
with a bravo people, who are onlj' trying
to do what Spain herself did on tho 20th
of last September, namely: throw off a
yoke which had become irksome to her,
and for which the TJuitod States Govern?
ment was tho very first of all tho other
Governments to recognizo tho revolution.
He speaks of tho paralyzalion of tho
immense trade of the island of Cuba, iu
which there aro so many American inte?
rests involved, and hints at the continu?
ance of the war, with its waste and deso?
lation, leading to its complete and utter
destruction. All these considerations
seem to be forcing public opinion in tho
States in the direction of a bestowal of
belligerent rights on the Cabans, which
the Government may find themselves
unable to resist. He concludes by telling
them he speaks frankly, 'as a soldier to
soldiers,' and trusts bis counsels will bo
taken into consideration."

PROVIDE FOR THE SCARCITY OF CORN*.
It seems now to be conceded on all sides
that there is going to be a scarcity of
corn, and that it will remain high in the
market. This being the case, it becomes
the policy of tho farmer to act accord?
ingly. Lot arrangements be at onoe
made to provide for extensive crops of ]
small grain, so that corn may be reserved
for man, whilst the smaller grain shall
go to the mules and horses, and stock in
general. We regard this an important
suggestion, and hope it may bo heeded.
THE FAIR.-The State Agricultural
and Mechanical Fair, to be held here in
November, promises to be a complete
suocess. From nearly every portion of I
the State, we learn that the farmers are j
preparing to exhibit .specimens of tho
various products of the soil-boeides
horses, mules, cattle, sheep, hogs and fine
stock in general. The mechanical de?
partment will doubtless be well filled
with every description of machinery,
embracing steam engines, cotton gins,
presses, sugar mills, and every variety of
castings. Thc ladies and little misses
aro preparing to exhibit specimens of
their skill in the preparation of pre?
serves, canned fruits, catsup, pickles,
etc.; together with embroidery, quilts,
patch-work and other tasty articles. The
florists will also contributo to the varied
attractions. The buildings are rapidly
approaching completion. A. Y. Lee,
Esq., is the architect; and R. W. John?
son, Esq., the builder. The main building
is two stories high, seventy-five by fifty
feet, with two wings forty by seventy-five
feet. In the centre of this building is
an aquarium, fourteen by six feet, and
four feet deep, in which will bo placed
a variety of plants and different
kinds of fish found in our streams
and ponds. Stalls will be erected near
the main building, for stock of every
description. An excellent road is also
being constructed for exhibiting horses,
.vc. In front of the main building an
amphitheatre will be erected, capable of
seating about 2,000 persons; in thc centre
will be the judges'staud and a gallery for
thc orchestra. The machinery will be
run by a portable steam engine.
Our country friends need have no ap?
prehensions as to accommodations in
Columbia during the fair, as many of
our citizens are making arrangements to
stow away all who cannot bo provided
for at the various hotels and private
VALUADLE INVENTION.-At Mr. F. W.
Wing's planing mill, yesterday, we wit?
nessed tho operation of a valuable in?
vention, "Tefft's Patent Snw Sharpener}
and G?mmer." With it one man can do
tho work of four, and save, as is asserted,
seventy-five per cent, of files. The
sharpener consists of an upright wooden
framo, of a height convenient for adjust?
ment in front of any circular or other
saw, at the top of which is an horse
shoo-formed iron frame, across tho centro
being placed a shaft for a pulley for driv?
ing the sharpening wheel. Besides tho
pulley upon the shaft is a small hand
wheel, and in tho rear of it a counter?
balance to tho emery wheel, which does
the work. In front, or next to the ope?
rator, and secured to tho horse-shoe by a
pivot attachment is another frame of
iron, in which, upon a shaft, rotates a
thin emery wheel or sharpener, banded
to the pulley before mentioned in the
horse-shoe. Being located in a frame
that revolves npon a pivot, this wheel,
by tho use of tho band upon the framo
in which it is placed, is made to rotate in
a perpendicnlar, or in just such a vorti?
cal position as may bo required-the saw
to be sharpened being placed immediate?
ly underneath, and at right angloa with
its edgo. The whole front, or operating
part of the machine, thus has an oscillat?
ing or rotary motion at tho will of the
operator, while tho rear part or driving
portion is stationary and affixed to the
frame. The saw to be sharpened is thus
affixed upon a abaft, (if circular,) at right
angles with tho emery wheel, and tho lat?
ter is then brought to bear upon it, while
revolving, at i any angle desired by the
operator. The whole thiug is simple,
ohenp, and easily adapted to any saw in
common uso, and wo think, in view ol ita
cheapness and the vast saving of expense
it secures, must come into general uso.
