public papert. The merits oT the measure have
been differently spoken of. While some publi
cations emanating, (at least ostensibly,) from dis
taat place, speak, nith hesitation on the subject,
the ceuse has been nobly pleaded by others more
-immediately within the sphere of operation, and
here, the necessity and Importance of the mcas

the answer to the two following questions :
1st. Is the measure necessary ?
. 2d. Is it one that can be effected ? -
First s Is the measure, necessary ? From va
rious considerations, 4t would appear that an af
firmative answer must be here given. 1st The

attentive to the policy 0tour sister states in other
respects, and disposed .to learn from example.-
Why attentive in everf oiher respect, but turn a
deaf ear to. the particular now in hand ? I repeat
it, that the uniform example of other states con
stitutes an. argument' violently presumptive in
favor of. the measure here advocated. 2d. The
conveniehcy of the Western section of the state
requires the institution of another public seat of
learning. FronT'the western hmits of. Northj;

writer is an advocate for a smattering in education.-
No r if a College arl.e in the West, we
wish and design it to be inferior to none in point
of solid learning aiU .acichccr 'l his, the writer
insists upon It, can be accomplished without the
long college residence hitherto noticed.
From the 6rt institution of Princeton College,
and until ilthin m few years, after a rcspccuUte
acquaintance ith the dead languages, and a good
knowledge of geography, the atudent th-t wa at
tentive to business was sure, to gtaduate i two
years. Was this an insufficient course i Ltt the
merits of the men that were iittitxiuced into the
literary world under this course answer the ques
tion. Are not these the luminaries that have
shone in the church, in the medical, department,
and at the bar t Are not these the men tha have
figured in our legislative coun- its, hnl thundered
in the field of battle i I hut it appears' that the
long college residence, and the cou-eq jent heavy
expenditures now by some of our public seats of
learning imposed on the student, are artificial
rather than necessary If it be s .id that the field
of science is extending, the measure, tuertlorc,
that Is here complained of is ncctsviry ; I an
swer, let well regulated Academics have their
full weight In a course or education. Hue ex
penses are comparatively iiht. i hus the same
point can be obtained, and learning not be put out
of the power of the less wealthy put t ol society.
5th., The, interest of religion and morality
would seem to require the measure . If all the
youth of our own state that are puruing a liter
ary course, together with a considerable number
from neighboring states, are to be collected to
gether at Chapel-Hill, it ill be difficult to pre
setve that order, that morality and virtue which
are vitallylmportarit f6rile Imnor and Interest
of an institution; and for the honor, interest, ond
usefulness in life of thoe who emunate from it In
any department of life, in proportion as the num.
ber is great which is collected together, in the
same proportion is it difficult to support order,
and preserve the interest of morulity anJ virtue.
Hence the rigid discipline that must,, be kept up
in armies. And hence the vigilance and disci
pline that has been kept up. and must be kept
up. in the cumbrous and massy Furopean uni
yersities. The number ought to be respectable,
so as to awaken spirit of due compctiiion ice
But there is a boundary , th.U it ouht not to pass.
In pleading the cause of religion and morality,
the Church ' wlirdtily appreciate the weigh! of the
argument. She laments the paucity of compe
tent Ministers of the Gospel, t.nd mourns over,
her silent .Sabbaths. Her eyes are upon the
fountains of science, and she devoutly supplicates
that they may be preserved pure. But ought the
church only to be solicitous that virtue and sci
ence be combined in our seats of learning ? Hits
the state no interest in such an issue ? To bfiii m
this would be rash, ant in opposition to the dictates-of
com men .sense,. and the results of expe
rience in every, age of the world. Ancient le
gislators accorded' ith t he sentiment of t he poc t (

The second point developing the merits of the
zeal and operations In the est.' to institute a
new College; It, 2d. Is it an c4iccl that on be
effected f To arcoinpiish the object, two things
are necessary ; 1st, A chatter fioirnhe Leit'tsla
turr tt "the btsterThlTri take ir for granted,
can and will be obtained." 3d. Funds to meet the
expenses of the undertaking Upon this ground,
is there any evidence that we nugtju despair ?
In point of fundsTwKat et Wencc Tuve wtlhafthe
CeiKTal A'aie.mbiyrwUI not boU out the hand of
generous co-operation r-x What operation would
more iramortalire the names of the ensuing le
gislature, than to arise in their mjesty,arid found
a seat of learning that would promise fir to he a
blessing, not only to "the present generation, but
lb generations yet unburn 'Mo the history of ev
ery country i the founding of respectable scM ol
learning' forms an import;iht era. The legitla
ture has the power t and we have yet to learn,
that they have not the will to patronize the Mine
of learning. But should we not be no foitunjie
as t olkain public 'aid, does it hence follow that
this grcr.t project must fail? Other seats ol
learning, i( great importance, vh. Princeton, kc.
have been founded and long supported by.piivale
munificence. And has that liberality lhat once
pouted blcttalngs on sot ivty, now taken ltt flight ?
We arc. not prepared to believe it. Thcie is
much weMth in that section of country ruueern
ed and wc htve yet to be convinced, that then
will net be a disposition to disburse it upon so in
teresting a call In this state of mind wc arc tup

Into operation, they will tive one thousand dol
lars towards It. Many can be found that would
contribbte that sum ; end, probably, I as well
without it as with it. The unanimity of the pub
lie is great, the zeal remarkable ; it may there
fore be Wily Calculated uwn, that liberal muuili
eence'will be pretty 'general.
The matter, then, stands thus : The necessity
of another public scat of learning is supported by
the examples of our s'utcr states by convenicn
Cy by the preset vation of our resourtesal home
by the accommodation of the less wealthy p-it
of society and by the interests of religion and
That it is an object that can be effected, ap
pear from the consideration, that the LcgitU
lure will not refuse a charter, and with it will
probably gnmt somcassistimre in point of funds
But should we receive no public aid, as to fund,
the wcalt.Sof that section of country concerned
lis respectable, and their liberality with respect to
so great and important an object, we hope, may
be relied upon. Let it be understood, that from
the first movement on this subject, we have con
ferred with many leading characters in the up
per parts of South-Carolina, who feel interested
in the object, and pledge every suitable co-operation
in order to its accomplishment.
To advocate this great project before the Gen
eral Aksemhlynmst'devolve Lupoh .Abe 'rcpi emu

We hope that none will be insensible to its im
portancc ; but that, "with all possible zeal, the v
wiil support a cause so important to society in
general, and particularly to lhat section of coun
try to which they belong. iuvivs.'
