EDGEFIELD C. H; THURSDAY, APRIL 9; I - " Syke," is received,-.hpjtwe.beg leave to decline its publicationi. The Edgefield Philosopheal Society,. will hold its Monthly.-Meeting in ihe Court House, on Monday evening hext, at 7 o'clock. We have -ieceived from tfie Hon. F. W. Pickens, a copy of the Circular of the lion. M. A. Cooper, a member (if Congress. from Georgia, to his constituents. The editor of the Charleston Courier will find in our paper .today, the last editorial article which he requested us to publish. We have now done the Courier ample justice, by publishing all its editorial on the subject of ;ie "Tribute to the memory of General Hayne." Heaven forbid that we should ever meddle in the personal controversies of other editors again? The President has recognized J. A. Van Couth as Vice Consul of the Netherlands, for the Port of Charleston. We publish to-day, some extracts from the Speech of the Hion. F. W. Pickeus, on the Cumberland Road." The arguments of this gentlemant, - gntin-tt the hill, are strotg and forcible. clearly showing, in the language of a- cons temporary, ' the progre i of that imimense fraud upon the Contitution, and exposinig the deception which has beet practiced, io excuse and clon;k the lenching oif the Treasury. to bribe the peophl.'' The President is opinssed to it. upmn consttntional grounds. We hope that he will still continue so, and that he will neves suioer himself to hgenajoled. by his iretended friends, iito its support. We are indebted to the Hon F. W. Pickens, for a pamphlet copy of a letter from the Hon. Geo. W. HOpkins, member of Congress from Virginia, to'Col. J, 11. Piper, of that State, declariig his Politiel opinions. Mr. Hopkins belonged fl'rmerly, to the "Conservative" party, but has now abandloned it, and returned to his old associates of the Democratic paty. .-He sets forth his reasons at icigth, for this change in his political sentiments. It will sulticegto say, that they are as " plenty as blackberries.'! Upon the whole, his letter is an able and manly one, and does him great credit for its sincerity and straiht-forwardness. Edward Hall, (Whig,) has been elected Mayorof M oble, over J. B. Hogan, (Adin.) the vote being 'all, 912, H ogan, 722. Mr. James Wood, on trial for the murder of his daughter, in Philadelphia, has been acquitted by the jury, (who were otly out about twenity minutes,) on the ground of insanity. The Hont.

Dr. Elias Marks, late Principal of the South Carolina Fetmale Institute, which was in operation during the past year, at Barhamnville, ntear Columbia, gives notice that the duties of this Institution will be resumed on the 1st of October, 1840, under the direction of himself, and the Rev. Wellinsgton H. Tyler, of she Amherst University. In the mean time, Dr. Mlarkv will receive into his family, a select clas% of younig L~adies, until October, next. WtT. are highly gratified so perceive this notice. Dr. 31., as is well known, was for some years, an able and successful instructer of young ladies, at Columbia. Actuated by a highly coommendable public spirit, and desitntus of raising. the standard of female educatton in South Carolinghe spared no pain, in procuring te best teachters to stid him itn his nolile employment. A fler teachinig for some time, in she Academy at Colombia, with great satisfarions to te commnuntty. generally. he remnovedi his school to a place about two miles di'stnt from that townt. This place is culled Barhasmville. Jt is situated itn a haltihy reginn of etsuntry, sttfficienttly remuot, from the "' popuslom< city," anid wtith nio temptation Iso exrrasvagance, or idleness. At the sme time, it is sufficiently near Columnbin, to enjoy n'l its advantsages. At thsis spot, he reared,. at his ownt expenme. n seendid, and spa. cious wioodenz struesore. Is i.< comosit.ed of a centre lsnilding, with double porsicoes. andI very extensaive winigs. The buildling contasins a considerable snmbter of hitlmc nd runms. an~d is in ovcfy ro. pect, well adapted for a r emute Acudemy. A wide, and lengthened avenue of handsome trees, extends from the road, along a slight elevation, to the Academy. There' are other ornamerital trees and shrubbery around the building, which give it a tasteful and beautiful appearance. Dr. M. fitted up in the Academy, a costly Philosophical apparatus, and provided every thing else suitable for the instruction and accomplishment of the yourg ladies, who were placed under his charge. In this classic retreat, sacred to the Muses and Graces, Dr. Mlarks imparted the best instructionlo riltmerous daughters of South Carolina, Georgia, and other Stares. The benefits which our ovn.State particularly, has reape i fiom his hands, are very great. We'know of no individual in South Carolita, who has done more for the cause of female education. None have labored more zealously, to place it on that proud elevation which it so justly deserves, but has too often failed to attain. It is scarcely necessary to say, that Dr. Ml. is an accomplished scholar, and gentleman. and we hope. that he will receive ample patronage in his renewed enterprize, from a discerning and enlightened public.

Cotton.-During the past week our market has been very quiet-neither sellers or buyersshowing the least inclinatioin to operate. -Within the last. two days, however, there has been a little enquiry for the better descriptions. and - holders having submittied ro a slight decline, the greater part of the sales reported below were. made. Our receipts continue very light. for the season, owing no doubt to the bad state of the'roads, and the small inducement held out to planters to forward the articles to market. Our stock. is much about the same as reported on the 1st of last month, the greater part of which is held on planter's account, who are holding on and sell only when they are compelled to raise money. The sales from warehouses so far as they' have come to our knowledge reach only 718 bales, as follows: 2 bales at 6, 11 at 6j, 27 at 7, 52 at 7j, 227 at 7j, 100 at 74 98 dt 7A, 147 at 7t. 43 at 8, and '19 at 8 cts.
