The September Term of Court commenced this afternoon, but remained in session but a short time, and was occupied in swearing in the Constables, going over the trial list, &c. In consequence of the high water, caused by the heavy rains of last night, there is but a thin attendance of jurors, suitors and witnesses. There being no business ready, the Court adjourned until 8 o'clock Tuesday morning. Tuesday, Sept. 3d. After the opening of Court this morning, his Honor Judge, Jessup delivered an able and lengthy charge to the Grand Jury, principally upon the subject of the late Act ot Assembly, prohibiting the circulation of small notes.

But a few years ago, the spot where it now stands, teeming with busy life, and vocal with the hum uf industry, was an almost unbroken wilderness. Here and there, it is true, the smoke ascending from some miserable hut, seen through the openings of the trees, denoted the presence of man in the solitudes of the forest, and the early dawn of civiliza, tion; but no one, even gifted with divination, would have predicted that, in the lapse of less* than a score of years, the old, primeval trees would be swept away by the sturdy woodman's axe, and give place to a town already numbering at least a thousand souls, and filled with all the elements of an enduring pros perity. A friend/recently on a visit there, speaks in the highest terms of the growth and advantag...

Letter from Cass to Gen. Garibaldi. 1, Washington, Aug. 14. My Dear Sir.-—I welcome you to this land of freedom. May it always be the land of hospitality to the unfortunate exile, driven by the persecution of arbitrary power to seek refuge in the new world from the tyranny of the old. General, you, possess the regarded the sympathy,of the American people, and you well merit this distinction. You raised the standard of Liberty upon [ the Capitoline Hill, and history will do justice to your noble efforts to maintain it there; to revive the spirit and the freedom of ancient Rome amid the monuments of her power and glory. It is not success that hallows a cause; it is the principle involved in it. You yielded to an overwhelming force; to another descent of the Gauls upon Italy. But you preserved your own high character, and you preserved also the respect of every believer in the rights of man throughout the world. But such efforts as those of the Roman people, though unsuccessful...

" : Lightning. During the storm on Sunday, the 3d pit., we had a most remarkable illustration of Dr..Franklin's theory^that the lightning -will not pass through a roof covered with metal, but will diffuse itself on the metalic surface, and if there be a %vater spout, will pass off through that to the earth. The house is covered with tin, and has a tin pipe leading from the roof to the cistern, and has no lightning rod. The flash was so great as to startle persons at a distance, yet, being directly over the house, was not seen or felt by the inmates. All they knew of the shock wasirora tlreroar ol the thunder, and having the water pipe shivered. Not a shock was felt in the house,— Charleston Courier.
