T1IE LETTER. Wa-u.aixa, S. C., April 28, 1SG8. Dr. T. C. Fader, Greenville, S. C. ?Dear Sir: It atlbrds me great plea sure to comply with your wish to become better acquainted with Walhallo, and its vicinity, in order to learn. ? . * wnetncr Li or man immigrants can lo- , cate there safely ami advantageously. | Walhalla lies in Pickens District, | < >conce?is distant from Charleston j oGO American miles, ami is the last | station on the Blue liidge Railroad, j li was founded about IS years ago l?y ; Germans, who still constitute the ( greater portion of its inhabitants. j About 30 German farmers live in the ^ neighborhood. The soil is tolerably , good producing from 30 to 40 bushels J of corn to the acre. Potatoes, peas. ; boan<, barley, oats and rye yield also j abundantly. German industry and < German muscle arc needed for thou- j sands of acres, which from want of t laborers are now unproductive. Even ( immigrants without means can, if j Imlufttrious and persevering, become K owners of independent homes in a ? lew a ear?. The climate is mild, the ?t wiiiU'i* iiovk.i* l - '1 ? v 'un r? months, ami tlio sun is nol more pow- 1 erful here, than in Eastern Pennsyl- t vania. The Highlands of the South i surpass the West in salubrity. There is no fever here. Goitre so frequent <j ir. the mountain-countries of Europe 1 is altogether unknown. Entire fami- ^ lies ami single persons can always ob- 1; tain situations, provided they come \ here with the fixed determination to i be industrious, honest and faithful in ( the discharge of duty; but that be- i longs to the German character. The I .Blue Ridge Railroad will soon be car- i l ied on to Knoxville, Tennessee, which ( __.fl! I 1 - . 1 ^ win uring money anu ^i\e employ- i mcnt to thousands of laborers. Prac- ( tieal growers of grapes and cultivators 1 of hops can find no better country, ( than this. As regards health, allow i i.io to say, that 1 have in the last eight I iuonlhs hail 18 baptisms and only one < funeral in a congregation of 300 i souls. i Provisions are also extant here for ( the religious wants of immigrants; wc have here a German Lutheran church, and a German and English day school of which I have charge. The election of Mr. Bieman to. the Senate of our State is a proof of the high regard which the community here entertain for Germans. The colored people are in 4l?n -rv? iii ah! f nn/1 Ktt A w nnno ill Ill 111V JiliUVXAt-J- ?J J Hv JUCUllO IIIdisposed to Germans. I repeat it again, that German immigrants are weileomc and, that they ean sooner become independent hero, than at the West. The mountainous parts of our State are, in my opinion, especially adapted for a German population. A ridge, gently sloping to the South, having thus the full benefit of the sun, and about one hundred American aniles in longth, possesses peculiar advantages for the growth of the grape. Land is moreover extremely cheap; in general not* higher than government land in tho West; but I have patisfactory reasons for believing that the largo landholders will grant farms .rv^^v 1 1 1 ? yji 11 win in IJ iU'W liuuurou atTC" gratuitously to immigrants. Mr. Jones, in Tamassee, eight miles from here, proposed to dispose of five hundred acrcs in this way; and Col. Hampton, brother to the d^gjtinguished Southern General ?ra*i name, expressed to me his readiness to do tho same. Ho owns, thirty miles from here, several thousand acros of mountain land, which, though not exactly adapted to tillage, yet on account of its rich pastures, which oan bo grascd for ten months in tho year is unequalled for the raising of cattle. Tho South considers immigration, and German immigration in particular, a blessing, and receives the immigrant kindly and heartily. There are no "sharpers," and no "runners" iii our Southern seaports to take in tin* unwary. Tho immigrant ought to take all those laels into considcraton. Jf lie is houml for tho West, a heavy initiation fro must bo paid in New York to all kinds of swindlers, fever and ague eome next, and when he is Ml last located, the distance from a inarkci, on account of the absence ol Railroads, make t lie products of his labor almost valueless. You are at liberty to use this communication, which 1 have written, as a conscientious and honorable man, in the Avav -vvhkli von mnv doom best %i - ? calculated to promote the interests of my countrymen in the old nnd my fellow-citizens in the r.cw home. .May t?od bless your efforts ! Most respectfully yours, CAUL* WEUHR, Pastor of the German Evangelical Lutheran Church, here. Fxom the Lutheran and Visitor. LETTER FKOM RAMBLER.?TRIP TO AVAL1IALLA.?JUBILEE.?IMPROVEM ENTS.?

On the cars, which were much better filled with travelers, than we had seen them upon our recent travels on the road, we had the good fortune to meet our friend and host upon our former visit, D. Bicman, Esq., now representing uie democracy of Ueonee in tlio so-called Senate of South Carolina, in session in your .city, and who was on leave of absence for ten (lays from the duties of the position to visit his home and look after the more material interests of the ^cwlycreatcd county capital, of which he seems to be one of the leading spirits. "Wo had a delightful timo of it on the road, as, though tho day was warm, it was interspersed with several showers, which served to modorate, at intervals, tho temperature, And a kindheartod member of one of our congregations going monntainward in pursuit of health, refreshed tho inner man from her well-stored basket of good things.

NOVELS AND NOVELREADING. i The "Westminster Review for July savs: <! Tho manufacture of novels I . , . . . 1 goes on with increasing activity.? For ilio * ?

Thirty new novels in two months, that is lift eon in one ^ month, and nearly lour in a single i week, ll is, to say the least, much to j he regretted; it does not speak well for the mental strength of the read- t| ing public, that the demand for light reading is so great, that bookmakers v and book|)ublishers find it proiitahle to serve up such an amount of fiction; ^ nor does it promise well for the fu- | ture. Nourishing food is needed both | ? iwruio uo'ly unci the mind. Labor ^ slrengthensiho physical, thought the 1 intellectual man; but, who reads a J1 novel in order to improve and siren?--! h- [! Novel reading is apt to do harm. We ,, do not indiscriminately eondesnn ev- j evy novel; we know that there are a ^ lew*?very lew though?that can he read with benefit : 1ml thesame bene- s lit. is obtainable in greater extent, cor- t, redness and certainly from the works that treat of the trr.ths and facts which novels pretend to illustrate and | make familiar. Ifovelreading destroys the taste for serious reading. t Truth is .stranger than fiction. Ficlion however professes often to be ,, truth; but the truth is generally perverted, exaggerated or modified by ( the novelists. We have novels to ^ teach history, morality and even x*eligion. We have tales of common life and of high life; of the latter the ; novel i.-ts g?. no rally do not know as I ( ; much as -My Lady's Chambermaid or j My Lord's Lutler. We have war nov- , ! els and nautical stories, and bricfl}*, j we have every kind of novels. Why j do wo have them? because (lie public ^ i mind is unsound, enfeebled and spoil ] t'd. Is it not fur better to read the , works treating of these and other ( subjects written by scholars; by the , actors themselves on life's stage.? . What works are moro interesting , than historical, biographical, or books 1 of travels?

The view of life novels present is generally false. "Life is real, life is earnestbut they malco it a dolce far niente existence, a long holiday.

Crimo.is either softened down, or painted with such brilliant colors, or united with redeeming traits and khyl deeds lo such an extent, that it loses all its deformity; the honest, la borons,. virtuous and religions are mostly r made ridiculous, while the seoundrcls, the betrayers of innog/cnco, the contemners of b6th divine and'hi*msfe laws are the real heroes.

Tlio wator varies from ten to or.o hundred feet in depth and so clear that tho diver can sea from two tothrco hundred feet, when submerged, with but little obstruct tion to the eight. Tho bottom of the ocean in many placcs is as smooth as a marble floor; in others it is studded with coral columns, from ten to one hundred foot in height, and from one to eighty feot in diameter. Tho tops of those moro lofty support a pyramid of pyramidal pendants, each forming a myriad more, giving roality to tho imaginary abode of some wator nymph.

A good farmer raises eixly bushel of corn por aero instead of thirty bushels. lLc doubles tho crop and realizes livo tunes tho profit.
