What Sh-l?wr Do? | 'Weah1 r member the plah.iivo cry of Mr. Webster, many years ago, in his I'atchogue speech, when there was a gene ral breaking up ot parties and a supposed equally general abandonment of princi? ples. Thro-v: g up his hands pathetically, he cried, "Where am 1 to go? What am I to'do!'* and this as pitifully said as if the whole sentence were uttered, as drawn from the sacred writings, "What shall'I do to be saved?" Verily, this is the question .with- every? body whom we meei-the substantial question; though none of the questioners think vt" the soul tating which the last qnesiion involves.

COLUMBIA. . Wednesday Iteming. May 31, 1365. Fruit and-Qt ;un-Culture. In tlie diminution of our 6eld labor, and in the exhaustion of our capital in ?mules, horses and vther implements of our former industry, to say nothing of the absurdity of our continuing an idle con . test, in our poor lands, in the culture of cotton, in competition with the fertile ral? lies of the South-west, the policy of our farmers will be to enter as laigely as pos? sible into the culture of fruits and the small grains, such as rye, oats, wheat, barley, buckwheat, <fcc. The apple can bc brought to as much perfection in the stiff lands of our meddle country as in th'e more hilly region, lt needs only that we should . choose our trees under Oie directions of some expel ienced teacher, such as William Summer, of Pomaria, who, it is to be hoped, though suffering largely in the war,' is s.ill able to supply the country with the very best varieties of trees.

The bankrupt makes bis most extraordinary displays of , profligacy, just before his open failure! and there is no moral filth more shocking than that which imperial trappings are . employed to conceal. Remarking to a pupil the various transactions which had takeu place within a short period, in and about Adieus, during the splendid career of Policies, one of the Greek sages con? trasted its condition unfavorably with that of the period when it was mostly wanting in its present magnificence.

COLUMBIA. Friday Morning, Jane 2, 1865. Popular Morality. The popular prosperity depends very much upon the popular morality. It is for a people to determine'fur themselves what they shall be, and what they shall become. Soil, climate, fortune, go but a mort distance, comparatively speaking, in obtaining or securing eminence, happiness or permanence to any jatiori. Vainly would thc patriot strive, and the sage counsel, and thc soldier fight, if a people are neither true to themselves uor active in their proper purposes. In their own hearts and bauds lie thc secret of their moral, their social and political successes, and the labor which is taken for them, in which they themselves do not share, is 60 much labor thrown away. Even Hercules, a god, could only assist those who were Srst prepared and willing to put their own dioulders to the wheel. The Loss of the General Lyon.

COLUMBIA. Tuesday {Morning, June 6, 1865. Education. Four years of war have ruade a fearful hiatus iii tho education of the South. The loss is not to be measured Ui< rely by the number of youug men who, during that period, were drawn from the school* and colleges into thc lield. Boys beneath th* military age were, in many paris of the country, deprived of their teachers; and .where they were not, they were gene? rally so much afflicted by tho exciting influences of the time, as to become inca? pable of sustained or systematic study. Taking all the distuning elements into consideration, it is hardly an exaggeration to say that the evil cifect of thc war in this regard will be felt by very nearly the whole of that numerous class which has been embraced between the ages of ten and twenty for the last four years. For several years 19 come, therefore, we can expect but comparatively few additions to thu thoroughly educated class We must net permit this gap to grow larger by so much as...
