si ^ ^ CAMDEN, S. CAROLINA. SATURDAY MORNING. MARCH 14.1840 Temperance Meeting. A meeting of the Kershaw District Temporanco Society will bo held at tho Presbyterian Church, in this town, on Tuesday evening, tho 24th inst. The friends of Tempcranco, and tho public generally, ore i respectfully invited to attend. The meeting will be addressed by tho Hon. John Bei.tox O'Neall. (EplVo beg leave to call the attention of onr advertising friends, to tho following article, in the term v of our paper, viz:?"Accounts for advertising and job work, re ill be presented for payment quarterly,'' Wo do this, as tho first quarter has expired, and we exrwW ctm-tkv tn diseharcn our nartion of the terms, by rnrl * -"V s- - S - "presenting the account"," and we trust our friends *"411 bo equally prompt in discharging theirs, by ma* king "payment." We would also remind our sub-: scribers generally, of another article in our terms, | viz: that the Journal is pubiishod "at three dollars in j ndvance, three dollars and fifty cents in six months, | or four dollars at the expiration of tho year." Puv-1 incuts made any time previous to the first of April, J will be considered in advance, but after that time tho j increased rate will bo added, in ovory instanco.? 1 Thoro aro a numbor, wc doubt not, who would prefer ' paying three dollars now, to paying threo and a half, or four at the end of the year, and wo trust they will avail thcin"olves of the opportunity wc now oiler. j HIT Wc have received u communication under tho signature of "One who Knows," on the subject of tho uoxi election tor town omcers. i.vcr since we nave been in any way connected with the press, we have ; uniformly observed that such articles do more harm than good, if, indeed, they do unv good at all?and we have therefore, in numberless instances, declined j their publication, and shall continuo to do so. In so j email a community as ours, if the town officors dis-1 charge their duties faithfully, every body knows it without publishing the fact, in tie n^wsp'ipers?and, on the contrary, if they arc neglected, it is also known, ar.d the proper remedy maybe applied, without oxci- j ting unnecessarily, the feelings of uny portion of the ! community liy unpleasant and unprovable newspaper discussions. < During Rubbery*?The Book and Jewelry Store of Mr. Alkx inijer Yorxo, of this place, wa9 broken open on Saturday night last. Tho back door was forced open, apparently with a crowbar or some other ' strong lovor; this admitted the rogues into a room | sepiratcd fro .11 tlio store by a partition, tho door of ...I.***. ...... C..?< -n irn*% i,.,l I llio l itter offered but slight opposition to tlio enterprising visiters. The principal aim of the villains socmcd to bo money, as every* drawer, box and desk, where it was suppo-.d money might be kept, was brokon open. A lar,; * portion of the finest and most costly jewelry, watches, &a. wore secured in an iron chest, which bafllcd ill their exertions to get into it. They succeeded, however, iri so mutilating tho lock us to keep the owner out of it tor a day or two. The only articles missed, are, about a dozen of the finest pock- J ot knives, two or three pistols, a few cakes of soap end a ll-w bottles of Cologne. Not the slightest clue to the d-tecfion of the robber has vet been discovered, nor have we heard of any one in particular boing SU?]?' C'.ed. * . til/' \V"o regret that the Smith Carolinian should have taken the vic^ -vum uf tho-g^.'nio TtrThio p-. wjivr, coiuim-uling on one in that, of the 21st uit. Wo certainly had n<> i i -a of being either flippant or sneer-1 in?. The l itter, wo creif ss, undor the circunistan- i ct-s, would be tuthcr ridiculous; and ajler the courtc-1 6y and good feeling before manifested l?y the Carolinian, might very pmporly be termed ungrateful.? We may be u I lowed to say, however, that we think the llditor, too easily aroused, and that after his ma* infestation of sueh uniform courtesy, since tho coinnit ncenicat of our short career, a little less severity would have been more in character, and havo answer, cd tho p'trpose equally well in putting us right; though same of our friends have gone so fur us to say, that we richly deserved all wo got, and more too! an ! perhaps they are right. We presume that tho manner in which the articlo was written rendered it more obnoxious to the Carolinian than the opinions intended to be conveyed ? For wo nover contemplated saying that the article upon which we were commenting, was ridiculous, because it resembled a sermon; though wc would not say a thing' might not be so. When we remarked that the editor commenced somewhat after the manner of a ser.non, we meant simply to express as wo do now, our decided disapprobation of tho custom too ^ common among our brethren of the type, of introducing into political disquisitions, solemn quotations 1'ioiTi the Scriptures, which, to our mind, nro totally inapplicable, and well calculated to lessen our veneration for the saercd truths thej* contain. We think the Editoron reviewing his article will concur with us in this opinion, and that tho custom generally, would be 'more honored in tho broach than in the observance." | We never supposed, for a moment, as the Editor scorns to think we did. that he had relaxed in his ap. K jov.ior of Col. ll:cii.\r-i;::oN, or ttiat hi.: non-com i inittal caution was to the candidates for the Legislature only. Wo confess ourselves at fault, however, when he intimates that the exclamation wo quoted, has another and moro appropriate application than tho ono wo made. That Mr. Calhoun's name has bcon too much i connected with the canvass for Governor, there can I bo no doubt?and that his friends have dono it, and that it is calculated to lessen his influence, is equally certain. In alluding to the article of the Carolinian, of the 21st ult. we stated and believed, that his name was unnecessarily introduced, and that is not the only paper in which it is done. The Charleston Mercury in commenting on an article in the Pendleton Messenger, with reference to the nomination of Col. Richardson, says: "We arc sorry to sco the Messenger hesitate at all?and on such ground, as to the adoption of our candid-tc?a gentleman identi fied with the support 01 Mr. Calhoun'?and of the great principles for which the South is now contending." We ask tho question with all seriousness, if this sentence would not have been equally strong in favor of Col. Richardson, if Mr. Calhoc.Vs name had, been omitted. Wo have said on a former Occasion, that we did - jxot 3jrgj with ilr. Cji.iyv.N in :!i liis ni^iom.-Uut \\c bfclievo Ire is /Ig-bl now, and We are not willing to , eco hia influence) impaired, either by frionds or foes.! It cannot bo doubted, that if the olcction of either ! one of the candidates for Governor is made to dc-! pond on tho popularity of Mr. C., his influence, to | sorno extent, most bo dependent on tho success of / that particular candidato. And, as the usefulness of I a Senator in Congress is somowhat graduated by his influence at homo, we protest against anv thing which I may, by possibility, impair it. If wo have not convinced the Editor that the exclamation which wo quoted, had an appropriate application, then, we think, he is incorrigible. In his paper of tho 6th instant, howover, ho expresses, partially, his assent to the views we have expressed.?Under the head of " The Canvass for Governor" he says: " We fully concur with our respected contemporary of the Pendleton Messenger in the obvious propriety of not unnecessarily introducing the name of Mr. Calhoun, into this canvass, which cannot be but a painful one to him, and which, we feel assured, that he has not taken, and will not take, any part." If tho word "unnecessarily" is stricken out of this paragraph, it would be just the idea for which wo contended, and we cannot concoivc why it should not bo. for we can imaarine no nossiblo necessity for such ' o * ' an introduction. Wo ore at a loss to conceive how the Carolinian could havo taken up tho impression, that bccauso wo said wo should go with Mr. Caluoun, as long as ho wont with us, wo intended to intimuto that it was governed by difforent principles. We certainly dosired to convoy no such idou, but simply to define our own position, in regard to Mr. C. without rcferenco to others. We are indebted to the Hon. J- C. Camiou.v for a copy of Mr. Grundy's Report on Mr. Benton's Resolutions relative to tho assumption of the State Debts. CONGRESS. In tho Sonato, tho discussion on tho Roport of tho Special Committee on tho subject of tho State Debts has boon brought to a close, by tho adoption of tho Report and Resolutions. Colonel Benton has introduced a project for a General Bankrupt Law?of tho provisions of which, wo havo not been informed, though we learn its bearings aro more extended than that of Mr. Webster. In tho House of Representatives, business progresses but slowly; the Committee on Elections have reported on the New Jersey ease, that the Democratic candidates had received the groatest numbor of legal votes. Vory little question exists but they will be permitted to take thoir ^cats. Nothing else of any importance has beon done since our last notice. The Charleston Courier statos that it lias been in. ' formed that "the personal difficulty" inentionod'by the Carolinian between two friouds of I\Ir. Calhoun, "occurred between Mr. Pickens and a distinguished gentleman now in Charleston, who would, in all pro; bability, have been elected Speakor of tho House of i Representatives, had he not resigned his seat in Congress; but that the difficulty originated from an en. tire misapprehension and has becu accommodated." PERIODICALS. Tho Ladies' Book, for this month has come to hand, containing its usual supply of literary good things. Those of our young friends, who read this publication will not only bo amused, bpt wo thjnfe. instructaV^ft'i'g ^brtiinly calculated to improve tho minri nnH rnFinn tlm tnalp. 44Ilriwlpr pmtniittr amuse ment8 at Home," by Mrs. IIalc, arc a charming addition to the work; and here, in the country, whero wo arc thrown entirely on our own resources for enjoyment, a taste for such pursuits is invaluable. The Book is embellished with a colored print of the fashions, containing three figures. The third number of tho Evehgheen, has also reached us. It is a haudsomo publication, containing 56 pages, of excellent matter, original and selected. From tho talent interested in the work, wo are induced to believe that it will flourish "Evor green"?unscathed by tho chilling blasts of criticism ?and that time and ago will only add new leaves Jo tho "wreath" which adorns it. It contains a wood ongraving '-Draieivg the Net." We should liko to have the January numbor. The prospectus of tho "Evergreen" may be found on our first page. Mr. TnoaxTox is tho agent for this place. Latent from, Europe.?Tho Gheav Westbhk Steamship, reached New York on the ?th instant, bringing dates from London to the 19th and from Bristol to 20th Fobruary, being/arty three days lator than before received. Sinco the early part of January, cotton had declined a half penny por pound.? Money Was more plenty, and the rate of interest had been reduced. The marriage of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert was celobrated on the 10th of February, with great splendour and magnificence. At a meeting of the Democratic Members of both branches of the Legislature of Mississippi, the following named gentlemen were recommended as EIcctora for President and Vice President at the ensuing election:?Hon. J. A. Quitman, Hon. J. A, Marshall, Col. Col. C. Levy, and Maj. R. Barton. Vardry McBee, Esq. has resigned the office of > President of the Louisvillo, Cincinnatti and Charleston Rail Road Company. Cols. C. G. Memmjnger, F. H. Elmore and James Gadsden, are named in tho i Charleston Courier as suitable persons among whom a selection should bo mado. GOVERNOR'S ELECTION. We are gratified to find that our Correspondents were mistaken in supposing that "Edgefield" was opposed to the election of Col. J. P. Richardson. Wc never thought that Col. R. would meet with any serious opposition; and congratulate his friends upon the unanimous support which, it is now manifest, he will receive in this section of the State. It will be seen, by referring to the extracts which we tn-day publish on this subject, that the Union party have long 6incc lurried the hatchet. It is a blot upon the escutcheon of our party, which should be immediately removed, that, i whilst ve Jiarc bceD professing to forget an<1 forgive, we have been carrying on a system of persecution against the Union men. Let those who think lhat we artcharacterising the conduct of the State It. Party, in harsher terms than it deserves, recollect that for the last 8 years the gentlemen of the Union party, have been almost entirely excluded from all ofiiees of Krtiinr rtr ni-rtfif ill this State. If to PXf.llldp gentlemen from offices, the duties of which they are competent to discharge, simply because they once differed fr>?m lis on a political question, now of no practical utility, be not persecution, we have quite mistnken the meaning of the word. If we regard either the reputation of our State or the interests of the South we will act upon this policy no longer. The great" political parties of this country are divided upon the question of Slate Rights or consolidation. The Sub-Treasury party is desirous of diminishing, whilst the other is in favor of increasing the powers of the General Government. The SubTreasury party therefore is the State Rights party. And those who are opposing the Sub-Treasury however honest they may be in their opposition, are opposing our principles and cannot receive uur auyjjwi t* We hope that the State Rights party will remember that N unification is not now ; tl)2 question at issue, and that the SubTreasury is. We urge them to be cautious because wc believe that " plots have been laid?inductions dangerous*' to distract our State by presenting false issues to the people and reviving party feuds long since forgotten. Let not the actors " behind the curtain" think that they can keep concealed. Who are interested in preventing the Sub-Treasury question from being made the touch-stone of political orthodoxy in this State? Certainly none but those whose opposition to the Sub-Treasury has thrown them into a minority, and hope to get into a majority, by revi ving the Nullification question. "SubTreasury" is our watchword. Without it none can pass, and we distrust ail who learned not this shibboleth at the breast.? Those gentlemen from whom Mr. Clay received his information, before pronouncing his " drunken prophecies" in the Senate will be taught that John C. Calhoun wears a corslet of public confidence, more imper.vious to the arrows of their malignity, than was the steel coat of De Bra cey to the shafts of Lockley. Let them continue to assail him?their bolts will hut rebound upon themselves. " The purpose you undertake, is dangerous; the friends you have named, uncertain; the time itself un9orted; and your whole plot too light for the counterpoise of so great an opposition." Col. Richardson is known as the Democratic, Sub-Treasury candidate. Can a Sub-Treasury man, consistently oppose him, whilst a Clay and Bank candidate is " in the field manoeuvring!" Does not Col. Hammoud occupy this position, if Judge Johnson is not to be withdrawn? if Judge J. is to be withdrawn, why is his name still kept before the public? Is it not .obviously for the purposeTTllivjUtng me| Union party, ami then transferring his j votes to Col. IL? If they expect to gull j fhp TTnion mpn Kv nrlc lito iKnoo " fill they "grow gentle, tractable, and tame as geese,*' they will find in their defeat, that they have missed their men. Edgefield Advertiser. Dark side of Matrimony.?Lately, a slave in the West Indies, who had been married to another slave by one of the missionaries, at the end of three weeks brought his wife back to the clergyman, and desiteci him to take her back again.? Ths clergyman asked what was the matter with her? " Why, massa, she no good. The book says, she obey me. She no wash my clothes. She no do what I want her to do." The minister.?"But the book says, you were to take her for better or worse." " Yes, massa, hot she all worse and no better. She had too much worse, and no good at all." MARRIED, On Sunday evening last, by tho Rev. E. Phillips, Robert Fletcher of Charleston, to Charlotte Marion, eldest daughter of Paul F Villopiguo Esq. of this place. Death lias bocn at oar doors. Another of his victims has fallen. Col. Jonv Botxin is no more. If a generous and manly spirit, enriched by tho social virtues; if a well cultured mind, whose kindliest sensibilities wore most felt, and best appreciated in the domestic circle; if a commanding position in life, crowned with tho rich blessings of a liberal Providence could have arrested tho fatal Hhaft, an afflicted family anda Jtroavcd cenrnunity would notmoumtheir irrt. parable loss. But, alas! the Destroyer knows no regard to human feelings. His triumphs are universal. And tho rtiorc prominent arc tho subjocts, of mortality so much the more rapid is their downfall. Seems not this truth now sadly verified? Was not our departed friend universally beloved forhis urbanity of manner, & kindness of disposition which delighted to do the generous act, as well by pecuniary assistance, as by the charitable sentiment? Who will dissent from fiend ship's testimony, that through life, and in all his dealings with mankind, he loved mercy, did juGt:ce, and walked humbly with his God? In the wisdom of Brovidencc our friend has been removed, as we fondly trust, to a better and happior world. Thore is comfort in tho reflection that through his last illness of long and varied suffering, patience and composure did not forsake him. Ho seemed to be at peace. Without a struggle or apparent offort of nature, the spirit entered the immortal state, in the 50th year of age. The memory of the just is blessed. P. At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Branch of the Bank of the State of J J; ISiO, Jiiefrj [lowing Preamble and Resolutions were passed unanimously: Whereas, it has pleased Cod, in thedis-j pensation of his providence, to remove from this life, our friend, and highly esteemed fellow-citizen, Colonel Jons Rovkin, and thus deprive this community, and especially the members of this Hoard, of one who was justly respected by all who knew him casually, and beloved by uli | who were his companions and associates. I Resolved, As a slight testimony of our j esteem for the deceased, that the members ' f I of this Board will wear the usual badge of mourning, for thirty days. Resolved, That these expressions of our feelings, be communicated to the family of Colonel Boyki.v, with a respectful assurance of our deep sympathy with them io their sorrow. Resolved, That these proceedings be published in the Journal of this place. TWO'S S/i. LMOND, President. CA.TIDC.1T PRICE CUiSRElT. ARTICLES.
