No. 3 Broad Street
The State of South Carolina has an area of 16,217,700 acres of land, of which 4,072,651 acres are in cultivation.  Cotton and Rice are her staples, though in the Northern part of the State, Corn, Wheat, Oats, Rye and the usual grasses grow finely.
Annual products of 1850 -- Bales of Cotton 300,901; lbs. of Rice 159,980,613; bushels of Corn 16,271,454; bushels of Wheat 1,066,277; Sweet Potatoes, bushels of, 4,837,469; Irish Potatoes, bushels of, 136,494.  White population 274,563; Slave population 384,984; Free Colored 8,960.  Total population 668,507.  Clergymen 474; Lawyers 397; Physicians 995.
The credit of South Carolina has always stood fair.  In Banking capital she is, perhaps, the richest State in the Union, to her size and population.  Bank failures are unknown in this state.   The means for general education are ample.  The poor (not many of this class) are cared for.  The slaves, too, are cared for, both in reference to their souls and bodies.
In talents, general intelligence and statesmanship, the citizens of South Carolina compare favorably with those of any State in the Union.  She has been made "the scapegoat" of the principal political dissentions which have agitated the country.  In this, injustice has been done her.  Although it may be true that some of her ablest statesmen have erred on the question of "State Rights," (to err is human) yet, that the agitation of this question has contributed to advance the science of popular free governments, we think no one can doubt whose attention has been directed to this subject.  It is the glory of our republican institutions that they are provided with "checks and balances" which the agitation of free discussion only adjusts and puts right.
No fears need be entertained that South Carolina will "go off in a tangent" that she is not patriotic, loyal and sound on all questions of Constitutional liberty, or that she does not understand and love the union of the States.  Where a liberal system of education prevails, as here, and where the bible and the institutions of religion are honored, there need be no fears for the cause of liberty. 
A notice of the cities of Charleston, Columbia and other towns in the State will come under their appropriate heads.
It will be seen that our list of merchants for this State is very full, having returns from every District.  All Whose business is not designated are put under the head of "General Merchants."

  Beaufort is the oldest town in South Carolina, the original settlement of Landonnier being either the present site of the town or within a few miles of it.  It is remarkable for its healthiness during the whole year, and its principal entrance, the harbor of Port Royal, is considered the best on the Southern coast.  Its commercial importance has never been properly appreciated, having been only considered by the wealthy planters of the surrounding neighborhood as a desirable Summer residence, where they can enjoy at once exemption from the malariony influences of the Rice and Cotton Plantations and the benefits of cultivated society, together with the advantages of the best schools that the State affords.  The white population is about 800.  There is an Episcopal, a Baptist, a Methodist Episcopal and a Roman Catholic Church, also a handsome Arsenal.  The following are the principal business and professional men:
Drugs, Medicines, Brushes, Perfumery, Fancy Articles, Lamps, Books, Stationary, & c.
Dealer in Drugs, Medicines, Chemicals
Attorneys at Law, Solicitors in Equity
House Carpenter
