DEATH OF COL WM. R. JOHNSON, .
The Cbarlcstoa Courier of Tuesday morning
contains the following announcement
"A telegraphic dispatch from Mobile, dated
10th inst., announces th melanchol4iiitolligence
of the death of Col. William R. Johnson, in that
place, on Wednesday last It is stated that Col.
J. was walking about on the day of his death,
suffering from influenza, but not considered by any
means dangerous. ;
"Col. Johnson lias, for many years, bore the
name of the 'Napoleon of tho Turf,' a cognomen
applied not so much for tlie reason that be pos
sessed great knowledge of blooded horses ,and
wa eminently successful in bi conies'. for Ilia

strength of his good fortune for reuliy he had
made up his aiind to go to jail: and there is an

have at least two bridles broken and lost h)' Id

dollars more: and if he, thp liorse, do not lose a
saddle, he will at any rate lis down and wallow in
it, and break the tree, or .leavo it on tlie ground
where the hog will find it and leaf tiio seat and
pad out of it so that there will be about fou' dol
lars to pay fof repairs. Now foot up tha bill, and
you wili l.avc the sum of Ninety-five Dollars which
this careful and economical citiz -n expends for
worse than naught in the year to say nothing of
tho shirt that is torn from his back by hi' adversa

up by the hogs while he is lying drunk in the gut

while traping from the doggery after his hali-slurv-ed
horse has broken his bridle and left him ; nor of
the paper of BUgar that ho drop's in the branch

this careful, economical, and time-saving citizen
cannot pay two dollars for a newspaper, by which
his family would be delighted, and lit minds ofhis
children developed and improved !.,' Really this
thing called economy is a curious affair. lb.

The mere statement of this fact carries with, it
its own importance ; for it is an axiom that, in all
human operations, the saying of lime is tha saving
of labor and money.. This fact is already exerting
its "nfluence; for enterprising men are at this ve

He had Itcen called by his countrymen to a new

upon the discharge of those high duties, he did so,
greatly distrusting his own abilities to discharge
them in such a manner as their reat responsibili
ties might demaad ; but that he should look fori
assistance and support not to I'd man, or to that,
but to the wholo people, to whom he was iudebtod.

"IP IT CAN BE BUILT."
If tho saying of tho poet be true,' that "our
doubts are traitors," then does the above expression
embody treason to the Railroad, we had almost
said to the State. " If it tan be built .' That's
not tlie tort of talk to effect any purpose, except
the defeat of the most practicable scheme ever set
on foot to redeem the fortunes of our good old State.
Suppose every man of rts fold our arms, look know
ing, shake our heads, and say, " It is a great work
if It esn Only be built !" Is the fcgreat wort" like
ly to be "accomplished nnder sues encouragement?
N'o. And tlie man who achieve a reputation for
sgac!ty by such remarks, only deserves from his
country such reward as is due to those who defeat
great and patriotic projects fur the good of man
kind.;. ., ; ,1;., , ,., , ,., v;

" Knowing nothing ourselves of the intentions
of tho Pr.sident elect, we have hazarded no con

time the Public would have offered to it the names
of a sound an I able Cabinet.
"If, however, we have been able to shed no light
on the futur as to who will compose the Cabinet
of President Taylor, we believe we can say to
som-i extent who will not be of It : and, as this
miy gratify curiosity, anj be stated without in
