Trenton*, New Jersey, was the scene |
of a destructive conflagration on the j
21st inst., cansed by the explosion, of |
escaping gas. The fire originated in
the capitol building, and, besides destroying
valuable records, damaged
the building to an amount which will
not fall mnch below $100,000.
Senator Hampton, on account of J
illness, has been nnable to answer j
numerous letters received by him in
reference to appointments, but says
that applications for office have been

health is now imurovingr and he hopes
to be out again soon.
The Attorney Genera! nnder the
reform administration has commenced
the redaction of expenses by reducing
the number of examiners in the Department
of Justice from of nine to

that the interests of the Government
do not require as many examiners
as are at present employed. He

to fill the vacancy occasioned by the
resignation of Mr. Bayard, and
Epbraim Wilson, Senator-elect from
Maryland, were both escorted to the
President's desk and took the oath of
office on the 18th inst. A committee
of two Senators were directed to wait
on the President, and if he had no
commnnications, then the Senate wonld
adjourn sine die.
Abbeville coanty is much stirred
np upon the railroad qnestion, and
quite a number of meetings have been
held withont coming to any definite
conclusion. There <*eems to be a
division as to what road will be built,
as there are three different ones under
discussion. If they would dispense
with so many meetings and building
so many railroads on paper, and commence
work in earnest they would
have a road much sooner.
A t4k>t r-fiarrnv r*f thft Women's Tem

of the visitors were inscribed,
was presented to ihe lady of the House,
after which they were introduced to

were in New York city 226 suicides,
an increase of about 71 per cent, over
the previons year. Of this nnmber
nearly four-fiflhs were males, with

ages ranging dciwwh 10 ami w ?ca?o.
The various modes of these suicides
have been recorded. Ninety-two shot

eighteen stabbed themselves and the
remaining twelve jumped from high
places. One of the chief causes was
disappointment in love.
The jfDiiaaeipnia limes in commenting
upon the appointment of
Joseph S. Miller as commissioner of
interna! revenue, says: t;The appointment
of Joseph S. Miller, of West
Virginia, as commissioner of internal
revenue, is the first lesson of the
Cleveland Administration on the absorbing
question of revenue reform.
It has just as much to do with a freetrade
or protection theory on the tariff
as it has with the ebb and flow of the
tide; but it has so much to do with
honest, practicable revenue reform,
that it may be accepted as ending the
first lesson of the new President on
that vital issue."
.Ttttvie notttrav. in his charge to
the grand jury at Spartanburg last
week, gave some sonrd advice to all
persons who are in the habit of carrying
concealed weapons. He referred
particularly to the practice of carrying
them, and for no other use than to shed
blood on the slightest pretext. Most
of the murders committed in oar State
may be directly attributed to the ever
ready, convenient pistol. The law
against carrying concealed weapons
should be rigidly enforced, and if
necessary, the punishment for its violation
should be greater. As the Judge
wisely remarked, they are made for
no other use than the shedding of

a disgraceful occurrence on the 14th
inst.., and for some time a free fight
seemed imminent. Two Senators became
rather angry while discussing a
bill, one favoring and the other opposing
it, and ugly language was used by
both of them. Pistols and knives were
drawn, and bloody work would have
ensued but for the timely entrance of
the Lieutenant-Governor. Both men
are of unquestioned courage, and the
friends of both are fearful of a tragic
ending of the difficulty. It is a deplorable
state of affairs when tnen of
such prominence are guilty of such
conduct in the capilol of the State, and
arc ready to shed blood over a d?11 of
so little importance.
The President will be brought to a
test in a very short while on '.us civil
service position. Within a few weeks
the commission*of the postmaster in
New York city will expire and a successor
will have to be appointed. Whether
the present incumbent will be his
own successor or not is a question agitating
tbe minds of the New Yorkers.
He has filled the office faithfully, and
j is backed by the Independents of the
I State. Whether he will be reappoint|
ed remaiusto be seen. Some seem to
1 be in doubt as to the sincerity of the
President in his position on tbe civil
service law as laid down in his letter
to Mr. Curtis, and in his inaugural
address, and will await with interest

The New York Commercial Advertiser,
the leading commercial paper in
the United States, has an interesting
I ana reaaaDic icuer irom jus wrruspondent
in New Orleans on the exhibit
of the Palmetto State. It goes into
details and gives a complete description
of the various products on exhibition,
and compares them with the
exhibits from other States. After
discn?sii>g the cotton exhibits?sea
island and upland?ana complimenting
the State on what it has done in the
way of inventions for better preparing
it for market, the correspondent gives
| a description of the rice exhibit, which
he says jnstlv claims lo be the lead in
the world. The most prominent and
pernaps tne mosi attractive ieature 01
the South Carolina exhibit is a pyramid
of phosphate rock made of thirty
tons of the land and river rock. After
commenting npon the exhibit of this
industry, he compares it with the
mining industry of the other States.
He says :
As every commodity is estimated
npon a gold basis, it is interesting to
compare the yield of the phosphate of
South Carolina mines with that of the
gold mines ot the southern states.
The gold mines of Alabama, Georgia,
Maryland, North and South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, produced,
in 1884, $266,828.77.
The prodnction of gold in the Southern
States last year being about the
annual production of these States since
the establishment of mints in the Uniied
States, and the prsduction of phosphates
in South Carolina for the last
year being $2,500,000, gives that State,
as a mining district, inclnding her
gold, ten times the advantage of the
other Southern States. Should the
rate of production of phosphates con
tinuc as it has in the fourteen years of
its discovery, in the same length of
time which "has elapsed since United
States mints have have recorded ihe
production of gold, the value wonld
reach the enormous sum of $200,000,000;
and there is reason to think that
it will far exceed this amount, as the
demand increases every year and the
supply is believed to be inexhaustible.
This comparison, and the prospects
our State for the future, is as bright as
the most sanguine could expect. This
corresponds^ speaks in flattering
terms of the 'mineral exhibits, includ
ing the granite quarries of oar own
county, and the manufacturing indnstries
of the State. He thus sums up
his article in the exhibit of our State:
Asa truthful exponent of what the
State contains, there is no State exhibit
in the Exposition which surpasses that
of South Carolina. Other States inav
exceed it in specialties. Some of the
Western States expend their whole
effort on grain, others make their min
erals the point ot interest, out ooiun
Carolina does not allow the phosphate
or rice to eclipse the cotton, grain,
lumber or manufacturing interest, but
shows the whole State for what it is
worth, and convinces all who examine
the exhibits carefully that the resources
of the State are as valuable as they are
varied. After all it is impossible to
show in an exposition the chief charms
of this State as a place of residence.
They consist of a climate at once
healthy as mountain air from the
North, meeting the ocean breezes from
the South, and the most pcrfect natural
drainage possible from mountains to
ocean, and a society composed of
earnest, educated working men and
women, who blend with the elegant
polish of manner which generations of
cultnre has made second nature, the
progressive spirit of the age. Neces
suv nas orougm iorm every power
within them, and the present status of
the State as compared with the best
days of its former greatness, speaks
roiomes for the enterprise of the
Sonth Carolinians of tbe New South.

The Evolation of the Skate.

the long curled toe, steel run her imbedded
in a solid-wiece of wood that form
ed the skate of his boyhood days. To
the wood were attached the long straps
and the screw in the heel that fastened
the skate to the foot. This skate, too,
was guttered, and the fellow that had
a pair of "smooth bottoms" was the
envy and wonder of all the other boys.
The curly-toe gradually disappeared,
the long straps gave place to the double
toe-strap, and the heel-strap that
with its harness rings always reminded
one of a halter, took flight with the old
wood-screw that used to be bored into
the boot-heel. Other changes followed
rapidly. Some bright skater conclud

the "rocker" skate made its appearance.
Another happy thought knocked
the toe-straps out in one round, and
gave the steel clamps, tightened by
means of a double screw and wrench,
in place of them. A plate in the bootheel,
