The Court of Equity is sitting here this

Equity practice fn this District, though decreasing

brrnTcases than in Kershaw. The business

until the last or the week.

of your readers to both these invaluable workR,
and especially to the last, as it is yet in its
infancy, and needs all the fostering care and
vigilance which ran be extended to it. The
Editors both are native Carolinians?educated
at our own halls of learning, and able advocates
of our domestic institutions. While on this
subject, I may mention the--establishment of a
new Southern Magazine, to be published simultaneously
in Charleston and Athens, Ga. by
C. L. Wheler, formerly of the Madison
Family Visitor. The 1st No. has been issued,
and is a prptty able specimen of what can be ;
done af the South, in this line.
We have had several davs of pretty decided
summer weather. The Thermometers how.
ever, arc none of them long enough to approach
Within resnectful distance of those of New \ ork
,
ftnrf Philadelphia for a week past. In the latter
city the mercury has been up to 100? in the.
Shade and 13">? in the sun! Laborers and beasts
of burden think nothing of dropping down dead
In the street. Not a few delicate stomachs sink :
tinder the unaccustomed shock occasioned by
drinking freely of cold irntcr! At Boston,
Lowell, Troy, and several other northern cities,
04? to 97? is a mere drop in the bucket!
In tlip matter of health, we are singularly :
blessed?Your people need not be afraid to visit
us. One death in a ireek out of a respectably
extensire irhitc population is something unusual, i
whether in a northern or southern city. Saratoga
Springs, icitliout the Cholera, can't approach
it. i
The Quarantine Laws are in full force. All <
vessels arriving from infected Ports come under '
its provisions. New York, Brooklyn, Philadel. i
phia, New Bedford, Boston. Baltimore, Norfolk 1
and New Orleans all have their share in the i
operations of the law. i
Cotton is in good demand. On the fir?t day i
of ihe present week, (Monday, 2"itb.) the sales
amounted to 1000 bales?at prices ranging I
from Gj to cents. Holders are more firm |
than in the latter part of the preceding week? i
