to render comment unnecessary.
In accordance with the established
policy of the Company to furnish the
best Concentrated Fertilizer at the lowest
cost to consumers, this Guano is put into
market this season at the above reduced
price, which the Company is enabled to
do by reason of its large facilities and
the reduced cost of manufacture.
The supplies put into market this sea
son are, as heretofore, prepared under
the personal superintendence of Dr. St.
Julian Ravenel, Chemist of the Company,
at Charleston, S. C., hence, planters m:Ty
rest assured that its QUALITY and COM
POSITION is precisely the same as that
heretofore sold. At the present low price
every acre planted can be fertilized with
'?00 pounds Guano ata cost not exceed
ing tho present value of 30 pounds ol
cotton, while experience has shown that
under favorable conditions of season and
cultivation the crop is increased bv the
application from two to threefold the
natural capacity of the soil. Hence, un
der no conditions could its application
fail to compensate for the outlay. Apply

A Terrible Night.
When I was British Oonsul at Rio
! Janeiro I passed a night ol horror, which
i morning revealed under the most painful
ly distressing circumstances, and the mourn
ful results of which could have been so
easily prevented had it not been for neg
ligence on ray part, that I have never
ceased to blame myself for thc horrible
death that occurred.
A rich trader from the interior called at
the consulate to transact some business in
regard to the shipment of hides -and tal
low, and as he came bringing a letter of
introduction from an old friend of mine, I
extended to him the hospitality of my
He was a sociable, well-informed man,
had been engaged in the cattle trade, both
in California and Austrailia, and could re
late thrilling incidents by the hour, and
so interested me by his conversation that
I forgot an important business transaction,
and found myself compelled to make my
excuses after tea for the purpose of attend
ing to it, leaving the trader on thc veran
dah to enjoy Ins smoke. I was absent
longer than i had intended to bc; and re
turned to find my guest had retired for
I also found upon my table, a bottle,
accompanied by a note ; but supposing it
to be some present of wine or other drink,
which I was the daily recipient of, I left
it to be examined, and perhaps tested by
my guest and myself at the breakfast ta
ble next morning, and retired.
The weather being very warm, it was
my custom to leave the inner door? of my
residence all open for a fi ec circulation of
air; but this night I retired, feeling an
unusual oppression from the heat, and
there seemed to bc some strange influence
acting upon me ; some foreboding of fear
that held me in woefulness until far into :
the night ; and then when sleep came to
me it was in fitful starts, filled with hide
ous dreams, from which i would awake
with a cold perspiration on my brow.
lt was perhaps 2 o'clock when I was
aroused by a most unearthly groan, and,
springing up in bed, saw the most fearful
sight that ever I bein ld, almost freezing
th''blood in my veins-a hideous form
r"bed in white, with its mouth and cloth
ing all iii "ked with bloody foam, each
hair seeming to stand separate from the ]
other upon its head, and its eyes deathly ;
glaring as it came towards me with out- 1
stretched hands, uttering the most unearth- 1
ly groans. In horror, 1 sprang out of heil :

watch him at night, and go to his bedside,

uniformly reported that (hey wore unable
to accomplish thc desired result. He was
then allowed to pa?* out and visit all thc
rum shops at will, in the hope that under
the influence of alcoholic stimulants the
ease might be solved, but it found no so

ence of chloroform, and as soon as the |
chloroform began to act his arm was
straightened out, andi tied a board on

The refusal of the Radical members of
Congress to vote for the proposed amend
ment to the Constitution, making natural
ized citizens eligible to the Presidency,
shows that thc party is fully committed to
the doctrine of proscribing our foreign
born citizens. One of the objections urged
by Radical ?Congressmen to the proposed
amendment offered by Gen. Morgan was, j
that thc preamble stated the fact that,
while negroes were eligible to the Prosi
dency and Vice-Presidency, white natural- .

Grant a Delimiter.
The Washington correspondent of the
Savannah News, telegraphing on the
2Sth, details the following interesting
The greatest sensation has prevailed
here, to-day, caused by the discovery that
no less a person than President Grant has
for more than twenty years been a de
faulter. It seems that during the Mexi
can war, Grant, who was then a lieuten
ant in the army, acted as commissary and
quartermaster. At the close of the war,
there was a deficit of $5,0U0 in his ac
counts. His attention was repeatedly call
ed to it by the accounting officers "ol' the
Treasury, and repeated demands were
made upon him to pony up, but he never
condescended to take the least notice of
the unanswerable letters which were ad
dressed to him. ile had spent the money,
and, of course, was unable to return it ;
for in those days his character and habits
were tuch that no one would think of
lending or giving him even so much as a
five dollar note.
In 1862, through some hocus pocus, a
bill was engineered through Congress, ap
propriating $1,000 to him, in compensa
tion of a sum of equal amount, alleged
by him to have been stolen from him in
1848, when a quartermaster in Mexico.
But, to Grant's great disgust, the Treasu
ry olficials pounced upon this $1,000, and
carried it to the credit of the old score.
It was then'bought that there might be
some chance of getting the remainder, and
again was Grant notified that he was in
default and urged to settle his little bill,
but it was of no avail; and to this day,
with the exception of the- $1,000 credit,
Ulysses S. Grant is shown on the Treasu
ry ledgers to have owed the United States
|5,000 for more than twenty years. Any
. xplanation his white-washing friends can
oller of this transaction, the people,will be
very glad to hear.

"So Gallant in Love and So Daunt
less in"--the B?llalo Hunt.
A special telegram from St. Petersburg
to thc N. Y. Herald, informs us that a
rumor prevails in tho Russian capital
that Grand Duke Alexis had married a
Russian lady since his arrival in Ameri
ca-a lad}' to whom he had previously
been attached, but from whom it was
thought he was quito weaned. On this
side the Atlantic we hear nothing of it.
On the contrary, Alexis seems to be
much more occupied with Indians
and buffaloes than with women. We
nay seems; for in these days men and
women seem to bc doing one thing,
while in reality they arc doing just the
opposite. And princes, nf a truth, are
not more sincere than thc common run
of mankind But if thehandsomo young
(?rand Duke-only twenty-one-has real
ly done this pretty trick, how romantic
and interesting it makes him appear.

lather for ?50,0()0 asa r?mun?ration for
abuse an 1 ill-treatment he h:u? suffered ut
Iiis parent's lannis since 1858. The hoy's

house and down two Bights of stairs, by
the hair, and bow, by way of encouraging
penitential meditation, Itu was thrust lido

kept there in such a posit: .ti that he was
unable to stand np cr sit down. The oth

law and good moral.0, and has clinched thc
argument by having the complainant ar
rested on a warrant charging him with
obtaining under false pretences, ten dol
lars and eighteen cents worth of groceries.
