Our books will be cxamin- , cd, and those who have paid us nothing since 1850, ( need net be surprised to find their papers stopped, and their accounts placed in proper hands for collection.? This rule will be rit.iillv observed in reirard to those ! ' " * ~~ ~ * *o,wv " ? residing out of the State, of many of whom we know nothing. Others personally known to us to bo good, wo shall exorcise our discretion. Some arrangement ; like this is absolutely necessary, as it is impossible to i succeed in any business, particularly like ours, unless > we get paid for our labor. Hereafter the Cash must ! accompany all orders for the paper. It will be found in 1 the end mutually advantageous, and all parties will be j greatly benefited. Our Cotton Market. There is no change in the prices of Cotton. We continue Friday's quotations, "1 to 8f. Rail Road Accident. A dreadful accident happened on our Rail Road on Friday evening last, near Clarkson's Turn Out, on the Camden Branch, which, we regret to say, was attended with loss of life. The accident was occasioned by the falling in of the culvert over a creek, the waters of which had been much swollen by the late rains and had undermined the wotk. Just after the engine had passed over, the culvert gave way, precipitating the tender, mail and baggage cars, which had beoomo detached from the engine down the precipice, smashing them to pieces, instantly killing Mr. Ilichard Singleton and his grandson, a youth 12 or 13 3*cars of age and severely wounding Messrs. Mayrant and Bradley, ' of Sumter, passengers, and Messrs. Sloan and Scantling, conductors. These gentlemen were in the mail car.? Mr. Shiver, assistant conductor, who was in the baggage car was also badly hurt. Mr. Mayrant had his thigh broken, and was otherwise bruised. Mr. Bradley it was thought was so badly injured internally that lie could not survive, but we are happy to learn lie is likely to recover. Mr. Scantling and Mr. Shiver are doing well, and Mr. Sloan, though suffering a good deal, is able to be up. About a third olthe passenger tt-iio I\rstLrnn nn ntirl flimitrli tin.?#* worn n unrulier of passengers in it, fortunately, none of thein were injured. Arrival of the " Paper Man," We learn that N r. Wells Fowler, the eccentric and well known "Paper Man" has arrived in town and intends holding forth to onr citizens for a few days. We have seen Mr. Fowler's celebrated Magic paper and it is a very useful and ingenious little nfi'air; this eccentric genius holds forth "on the stump" in thestvloofthe celebtatcd "Kazor Strop Man," and we have no doubt that our citizens will be much amused if not edified by his quaint speeches and comical rhymes. * A Bold Move. j The recent outrage upon a citizen of Virginia in New York, who visited that city with his family and eight Negroes, for the purpose of finding passage to Texas, is one of the most daring and open robberies which has ft.f o 1 onrr fiinr* Aiifrnirnd thn fi?nlm<ra iif nit'll QiV*t??rv?? an exorcise of the power of the Higher Law, unparalleled in the history of oar day and time. A man to bo , overtaken on the public highway, or street, and robbed of his property, in open day, and with the sanction of law, induces the opinion that we are living in days of rapine and plunder?equal to the times of Robin Hood and hisco-adjutors. IVe would rather stand our chance with the highwayman, who commands us to yield up , our purse, or life. IVc may provide a remedy against him, but for the robber who steals under the sanction of law, there is no recourse. The Fugitive Slave law, that miserable subterfuge by which the pusillanimous ' Sout h were cajoled into acquiescence is not sumcicnuy 1 expert iu its operations for the higher-law part}', who 1 are uow riding over law, tiie Constitution, and every thing which presumes to oppose a barrier to their nefarious operations. Where is the end to be? Shall we ask Congress for a remedy? As well might we, speak to tho surging nnd angry billows of the ocean : saying?Peace! be still. They would laugh us to scorn. There is but or.e remedy now, but vain is our hope ' that this will ever be applied. Will tho South ever resist an aggression made upon her rights by tho dear j North? Has the South ever resisted a single wrong ; from that source? Never! And so it is likely to bo i to the end of the chapter, until Jinis ends the history, i Tho North havo done as thoy please, are doing as they please, and we believe will do as they please as long as tins unnatural union, or connecwuu remains. Is there not to be found in all of the ''Old Dominion," a single spark of the spirit of '70? Is there no Patrick Henry within her wide domain, whose words of living fire can warm the dull cold hearts of Virginia's sons to resent this outrage? Less than this caused a war with England. Will Virginia brook this insult in sullen silence? We arc afraid she will. Even South Carolina could not withstand the shocks of '"leagued oppression"?her chivalry quailed, and like the rest, she too has? "JJropt from her nerveless grasp the quivering spear, I Closed her bright eye, and curbed her high career." This is not all poetic vaporings, for in point of fact, it is a humiliat ing truth, that in her late political adrogation South Carolina? , "Found scarce a generous friend, a pitying foe, Strcnirth in lier arms, no mercy in her woe." In a former number of our paper we gave tin* circa instances of this case; it is mined ssary ti ?i v s'.ui.ii bo repeated. The idea that a ' .ti. in- a rior Court of New York. s!mu -it;. .. . .. p .... resposibility of rimmiing rcugii f.-n .'int. tion, and liberating eight slaves hoi., tin- cu-io.n oi their owner, who had taken them to that City for the purpose of transporting them to Texas, is such a palpa hie breach of law and order, that we cannot refrain from entering our protest, at full length, against all such outrages and unlawful proceedings. Wo know it will do no good, but that is not the question; every honest man ought to speak out in terms of condemnation. j' Ye that have words, prepare tospenk them now." ! For it :s about all you can do. j | Suppose a Northern man wasto come out with goods to the South, and they were seized upon nnd contisca j ted by a moboeracy law, such as the New Yorkers have, how soon would South Carolina, or any other Southern State, bo vailed upon to make full reparation ' to the injured party. Is there a particle of ditl'oreiice in the present ease? None that we can perceive; and if I Virginia docB not make a domaud upon the Gonora1 j i Government for redress, and protect the rights of her ' jitizens, then she is unworthy of her name and place. 1 Even our good Union-loving friend*in Georgia, some it least, do not relish these proceedings very welL The following we find in the Savannah Courier, relating to the New York Slave Case: "This decision has a direct and practical bearing upon the very existence of the institution* of slavery. It strikes a bold and decisive blow, not only at the Constitution, but at the existence of the Government itself, if Southern men are thus to be robbed of their property, in passing j from one port to another, in defiance of the Con-: stitution, in defiance of every principle of right! and justice, then we say the Government has become an oppression, an outrage upon tneSoulh. We are no disuniunists?nor have wo any sym- j pathy with the men who would delight in the | overthrow of the Government?but we say it, I openly and boldlv, that if the plain and palpable 1 rights of our people are thus to be outraged, the c-rt,cr.l,.lr.it.) tViiIll flirt \T.,rtll flirt li f tl.l* ! ... .....v - ? ' 111 the language of the lhiltim ire Republican, I we say : "If a gentleman cannot travel willi his sor 1 vants through a five State without being stop-; ped and robbed by the fanatical hordes that prey | upon tlie community under the false plea of philanthropy, we may well expect the destruction of those ties of common brotherhood that have hitherto bound our numerous States together." ' We know there are men at the North who are opposed to all such fanaticism and injustice. There are persons there that do not fail to speak out boldly in denunciation of such outrages.

This decision of Judge Paine is unquestionably the most startling outrage upon the South, which has ever y-t been perpetrated. It is one which calls for immediate and prompt action. Unless this deci-ion is reversed Soutlu-rn property will find l ->s protection undei ti:e Am -vic.in than under the Kn- ; giish miVi 1'imeiil." JTchtorial Correspondence. CoLVMlilA. Nov. 27. 1S52. I have little of special interest to report of the Legislative proceedings; the time o!' that body is largely occupied in electioneering projects?a looker-on may hare a pretty good knowledge of the progress of events, by watching closely the knowing ones?log-rolling is an extensive business. As we make no definite charge, wesuppnse no one will take it to himself unless he be of the party to whom reference is made. There is too much looking a-head. and calcinations arc mnue which peer into the future, rather inquisitively. Coming events are made to cast their shadows before, and it is difficult to electa man to an important office of honor, or trust, unless by the operation, other parties are to bo accommodated. All this too in the egislature ol'South Carolina! A considerable eftbrt is being made in the Governor's Election, General Adams and Col. aiming are the Candidates between wliomthc contest will principally lie, and the result is yet to be seen. As our opinion will r.vike u>> in itcrial difference in tins matter, ?? shall exercise prudence In* remaining sih'nr. The election of United Scales Senator will come off on Monday. The vacancy occasioned by .Mr. Rhett's resignation is l'kelv to l<e tilled either by Judge Rvaus, Col. Pickens. or Col. Chesnut. We hear these gentle* ! men more spoken of in this connection than any others, ; although the names ofCol. Woodward and Orr are also ! mentioned. Of course we prefer Col. Chesnut, and j hope to see this important trust of honor and responsibility conferred, for once, upon a son of old Kershaw, of whom, none can be found more worthy, than our gifted Senator. If I can get the Telegraph to work, I will transmit the result of the election a& sooniis it is known. You need not, however, depend upon this arrangement, for unless we are more punctual than usual the opera tions of this affair will bo rather slow. We nre particularly unfortunate when we have occasion to employ its agency. From the published proceedings of the Legislature to be found in the Carolinian and Banner, the former of which prints for the Senate, the latter for the House, you will find the proceedings in vxtenso. Mr. Kershaw has presented a bill to provide for the election of Electors for President and Vice President of the United States, which has received its (ir.st reading and is referred to a Committee of the Whole. Through the politeness of Col. Chesnut, in the Senate, and .Mr. Ifoyhi 11, in the House, we will have a seat | oil tiic lluor of o.icli as reporter. The Grand Division of the Sons of Temperance off South Carolina mot on Thursday last. A large number of delegates were in attendance, and the meeting was one of unusual interest and lecling; if we may judge by ' what we saw and lelt. mmtthinn is vet to be done for : our noble cause, the cause of all mankind. We know ' that our zeal may be objected to by some?be it so, if we are in error our fault leans to virtue's side, and wo feel that we shall never have cause to regret the posi tinn which we have assumed in this matter.

We are decided in our j opinion that the people should have light, the time has I come when every man must decide for himself, and no | better mode can be adopted than for tho Publication 1 Society to go to work and circulate the principles of our order, over the whole State and country. On Friday evening a procession of tho Tempornnco , men was formed and marched to the Methodist Church , where Pro.

Wis tributo of respect to tho memory of Lhr. M. T.

Look Out: " Twenty-four Pedlars all in a Row." On Monilay morning last, twenty-four Irish pedlars left this place, en route for Anson county, N. Carolina", with their packs on their backs. We understand that they are well supplied with ^ an assorted stuck of goods, consisting of sijks, rvmdiiw linons A':/* ivr/* ivmnn trill no doubt, endca\ or to dispose of without the u-ual taxes levied on merchants and regular pedlars. It then-lore, behooves those who pay taxes for tin- privilege of selling goods, to keep 3 sharp look out for tin-.se characters. When these characters first made their appearance in this neighboihood, it was to sell a little linen, the produce of their own hands, to supply the dear wife and children with potatoes, or to remove them to this "blessed countliry;" and their pitiful tales excited sympathy enough in their behalf, to enable them to do a g<x>d business. This fact added to their number, until the whole couutry is overrun with them. It may not be generally known, but nevertheless, such is the fact, that the business is systematically prosecuted, not only by these footpads, but by men of wealth. In New York there are several l.-inre establishments, which inmort all . 1 I! 10 goods, smuggling in as many as possible. These establishments send out the foot-pads all over the country to retail the goods, in direct violation of layr.?JTence their ability to undersell the honest dealer, who pays the duties and taxes. The system has grown, until it has become a serious evil, and should be put a stop to. We do not doubt there are many who, for the sak? of getting; bargains, will buy of these men, and keep their secret; but a very little effort on the part of those whose interests are most affected, will arrest the evil. It is possible these meu may be al>olition em- .> i missnrie-s, and that they may be as intently sowing the seeds of incendiarism, as upon selling tbeir goods.?Cherow Gazette. Later from Europe. ARRIVAL OF THE AMERICA AT HALIFAX. Baltimore, Nov. 23.?The British Mail Steamship America, Cnpt. Ling, arrived at Halifax from Liverpool, which port she left on the 13th instant.
