"’by do not those eholitionisl, prac- rillful and malicious burning of an out house appear* that at the Democratic State Conven* tion, held in Vermont, at which the*nominations for Governor and other State, officers were made, one of the speakers, “Mr. Stoughton, be ing called for, declared in favor of Mr. Wight, a gentleman from Georgia, who‘would address the Convention.” Mr. Wight addressed the Convention in a short but telling speech, from which we make the following extract: - “In regard to slavery, I suppose there are many ptesent who have been South, and know personally what it is, and there are-others who know nothing what slavery is, or how it exists, t treat my slaves as 1 would my children—l punish them whan they do wrong; and reward them for well doing. The slaves woflr when well, and when old or sick the masters are compelled to take care of them. In this respect they have the advantage over the laboring man of the North. He vvotka when well, and when sick has to take care of himself. There are cases where slaves are illy treated, but they.'are ex ceptions. uut the general role. It is for the in terest of the master to treat his slaves well, for the same reason that it is for the interest of Northern men to treat their.employees well.— If you say that the system of slavery is wrong because there .are instances where slaves are not well used, as well might voo argue against marriage because some husbands treat their wives illy; or against the ownership of dumb beasts, because they are maltreated by some of their owners. * Shortly after, in tho same paper of the 22d July, Mr. Wight published an able article, abounding in practical common sense, onans werable views on the slavery question. We have room only for a short extract:.. “From what I saw of the men composing the Convention on the 8th, 1 judged them lobe fearless and independent—just such men as were the patriots of *70. These are the right kind of They are the men who will attend to their own business, and let the South attend to ! hers.

This ques tion is necessarily introduced in order to direct the attention of Southerners to the importance of educating their children at the South, that they may be free from fanatical abolition in fluence and sentiment* We copy the closing part of this address, as it embodies principles of which should be en graven on the heart of every Georgian, and ptactically applied now and throughout all time: “Friends and patrons of learning who have gathered to witness the exercises of this inter esting occasion, a word to you and I have done. If nothing which I have advanced has been able to convince you of the necessity of southern education for southern youth, I have in reserve an appeal, which the heart of no true Georgian, [ trust can possibly resist. It is the solemn warning of our departed sires. It comes to us like “the hand writing on the wall” to the inmates of Belshazzar’s palace with all the force of retribution. It requires no Daniel to interpret, but stands upon the pages of our statute bouk in a language'which all may read that, “sending them (our youth) abroad to other countries for education will not an swer these purposes, is too humiliating an ac knowledgement of the ignorance or inferiority of our own and will always be the cause of so great foreign attachments, that upon the prin ciples of policy, it is inadmissible.” Not con tent with this admonition embraced in the act of 1785, for the establishment of a State U versity, our patriot fathers, at the same session of the General Assembly, passed a separate act of disfranchising any person who might be sent abroad for the purposes of education, and de daring such intelligence to any officer, civil or military, in the State, for a term of years equal to that of their foreign residence. And this statute remains to this day unaltered and unre pealed. Have we, l would a*k, less love for our sons or less regard for our country, than actuated our ancestors?

Miss An nie R. Blount, the well known “Jennie Woodbine,” will continue the presiding divinity over tho “La dies’ Bureau’ 1 of that paper. Reply to the Arffns. When we came to the Editorship of this paper, we fouhd it advocating Judicial Convention conditionally. We continued to advocate it with this qualificalion, ilmt we did not insist upon it, but if the matter was moved in, we would sustain the action of the Convention. We perceive that nearly every county in the Circuit, has met and appointed delegate*. We therefore regard a Convention as certain, and from the actiop taken that il is necessary. Who Can Beat It ? We clip the following from one of oar ex- banges: ; , r Extraordinary Stalk of Cotton.—Mr. D. Benton, of Benton’s Ferry, Louisiana, has the editor of the Baton Rouge Advo cate a Btalk of cotton tif the “Dean” kind, which was broken down bj the wind. The stalk was broken about eighteen inches above the ground ; the portion sent has one hundred and ninety one bolls arid forms, the balance of the stalk (still growing) has sixty two bolls and forms, making two hundred and filly-three al together. If any one can beat this stalk, let him do so. We mentioned io our issue of 2Glh August last, that we hud received a stalk of cotton grown on the plantation of Mathew Brinsvn, of this county, containing 234 bolls and forms, and at the same time spoke of another from Worth county, containing 279 bolls and forms. We have in our office sent os the past week by Mr. W. T. Hameriek, overseer for D. A. Vason, Esq., of this county, a s»alk of “Small woods Prolific’’ measuring about five feet high, and containing 305 bulls and squares at the field, and 298 after k auling it three miles. By this it will he seen while the first mentioned stalk Kng. falls 19 short, the Worth county stalk overgoes 26, and the latter, 52 over the Louisiana stalk. If this is a proper enteri an to judge by, we say that South-Western Geoigi.t can beat any sec tion m growing the great lever that control!* the destiny of the commercial world. Messrs.

Walker who. only tried to prevent Kansas becoming a slave State, was “hung, drawn and quartered,” while Douglas who, meets her at the threshold of the Union clad in the robes of an independent, slavery sovereignty, and smites her in the face amid the applause of his Abolition backers, is to be granted a free pardon, and taken back into the party withoot recantation or repentance of any kind. We confess ourselves utterly unable to see cither justice, or consistency in any such course. If Walker deserved behead ing lor raising his arm against the South, surely Douglas who, strucli us such a heavy blow, doserves equal, if not greater, punishment. Are their not, of a verity, we would most respect fully ask our cotemporary of the Constitutionalist, some strange sights now to be seen in the political world !—Athens Banner. ^ I Cuthbert Convention—Col, Tucker. The Sumter Republican, an American organ pays the following just tribute to the legs] ability of Col. John A. Tucker, the nominee of the Dem ocratic party for Judge in the Pataula Circuit. It eaya; ’ * “In our opinion, the Convention could not have made a more suitable selection tor Judge, than that of Col. Tucker, for we regard him every way well qualified to discharge the onerous duties at tendant upon the office. Notwithstanding he is the nominee of a party, and our opposition to cau cus nominations for that high and responsible office, yet we feel constrained to say that a more suitable person cannot be found in the district, from among those of hia own party. We hope car friends In the District will not hold a Convention, bat will give their support to Col. Tucker, for we feel saiisfied, be will do justice to all. Qualifica tions alone, and not parly, should control ns in the choice we make for the offices of Judge and So)ic< itor, upon tbeir merits, they should stand or fall.” Tho Democratic party of title (Chattahoochee) Circ uit have never opposed Judge E. H- Worrill— onr present able Judge—though he Hat .been twice before the people for t he office. He waa elect cd without opposition each time.

Our Mayor and Aldermen deserve the united thanks of the community for their persevering energy in keeping open the avenues of health by promptly removing all the filth and rubbish of the city, and in their strict endeavors to pre serve the good order and morals of the com munity. To this end we are indebted in a great degree to the good health which we have enjoyed. Our city Marshal has been untiring in his exertions to carry out the views and instruc tions of the Council, and thus far there has been no cause for censure or reproach, llebas been in every respect a reliable and faithful publio officer, and so long as he continues in office, and the present Mayor and Aldermen remain in tbeir position, we cannot believe that the wants of ibe community will materially suffer. The Clerk of Council is not the less desorv. ing of praise for his prompt and faithful atten tion to business. Under his care the business of his office moves quietly and steadily on, and if be errs bis errors are of such a character aa to defy detection. We differ somewhat with the action of Coun cil at its last session, in the passage of the reso lution authorizing the purchase of “hooks and ladders”—not that we desire to find fault, but consider it wise policy in the purchase of hooks and Udders, to purchase also a first class “Fire Engine”—^one good Engine, well manned, is worth, in our judgment, half a dozen hooks and ladders. We expectin a future number to insert a full report of the proceedings of sonncil, togeth er with its present financial condition, which we believe will give general satisfaction. , 5 , - • He is a Northerner by birth and education, and from his residence in both sections of the Union He speaks out his sentiments as boldly as though he was before a Southern audience. The truth, thus boldly spoken, before a State Convention in the worst of abolition States, must do good. Mr. Wight is entitled to the acknowledgements of all true Southern men, for his able defence of Southern institutions, while travelling among our enemies. It will astonish many, that such sentiments were tolerated by a Vermont Convention, and that they could find a place in a Vermont paper. The Convention was Democratic, and tho pa per likewise. There is no other party there or elsewhere at the North, where a Southerner would have been allowed a respectful hearing, entertaining and expressing such views. As a sample of the politics of the Convention, we append one of ils resolutions: u Resolced, That the Democracy of Vermont are neither pro-slavery cr anti-slavery, hut leave that question where the constitution leaves it— with the people, and stand upon th ci.! ri « l "* 1 ; SoiiimI lawy man. and r of principle [Commuuicnlcd.l Mr Esiitnr —11 will besirolv gratifying to the many old frh-nds ef the ffon.

So long as Sparta continued to observe the laws and institutions of Lycurgus, she retained unimpaired the power And influence whh-h gave her supremacy over all her rivals, but when in the lapse of time those laws became at first negleeted and then forgotten, Sparta fell to rise no more forever.
