EXPERIENCE IN THE USE OP this
Guano for the past six years in this
State, for Cotton ana Corn, has so far es
tablished its character for excellence as
to render comment unnecessary.
In accordance with the established
EoHoy ol ihft Company to furnish the
est Concentrated Fertilizer at the lowest
cost to consumers, this Guano is put into
market this season at the above reduced
Sri ce, which the Company is enabled to
o by reason of its large facilities and
the reduced cost of manufacture.
The supplies put into market this sea
son aro, as heretofore, prepared under
the personal superintendence of Dr. St.
Julian Ravenel, Chemist of the Company,
at Charleston, S. C., hence, planters may
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
200 pounds Guano at a cost not exceed
ing the present value of 30 pounds of
cotton, while experience has snown that
under favorable conditions of season and
cultivation the crop is increased by 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

Tell me not that he's a poor man,
That his dress is coarse and bare ;
Tell me not his daily pittance
Is a workman's scanty fare ;
Tell me not his birth is humble,
That his parentage is low ;
Is he honest in his station?
That is all I want to know.
Is his word to be relied on?
Has his character no stain?
Then I care not if he's low born
Then I care not whence his name.
Would he from an unjust action
Turn away with scornful eye?
Would he than defraud another
Sooner on the scaffold die?
Would he spend his hard-gained earnings
On a brother in distress?
Would he succor the afflicted,
And the weak one's wrong redress?
Then he is a man deserving
Of my love and my esteem,
And I care not what his birth-place
In the eye of man may seem.
Let it be a low, thatched hovel ;
Let it be a clay-built cot;
Let it be the parish work-house
In my eye it matters not.
And if others would disown him
As inferior to their caste,
Let them, do so-I'll befriend him
As a brother to the last.
Millie Say's Foriaae,
Harry Cowper was a book-keeper in
large commission house, and his employers
prized him because, though only an em
ployee, upon, a stated salary, he . made
their interests his own, and suffered noth
ing to interfere with his duties. He wi
a stout, healthy, handsome youth, his
clear blue eyes and purely tinted skin
showing very conclusively that his habits
were virtuously regular.
It was towards the close of the day,
and Harry was busilv engaged in balan
cing his accounts. The only other occu
pant of the counting room was Peter
Phipps, the delivery clerk. Peter was an
old man-sixty at least-and had been in
the employ of the house for many years.
He was broken in health, but was able to
keep an account of goods as they were de
livered, for which trifling service he re
ceived sufficient for his support.
Harry had just closad his ledger wjien
Jasper Groome entered the office. Jasper
was Harry's senior by two or three vears,
and held a limited interest in a small-house
near by. He was well and fashionably
dressed, and might be accepted as a fash
" Harry, mv son, ha " you heard the
news?" cried the new comer, tapping his
[riend upon ihe shoulder.
" I have heard nothing wonderful, Jas
per. Is gold up or down."
" A certain Kind of gold is high up.
Bavcn't you heard of the stroke of for
tune which has fallen to Millie Day?"
At the mention of that name Harrv
Cowper caught his breath, and a quick
lush was visible upon his clear cheek.
" I have not heard," he said.
" Don't you remember an uncle of Mil
ie's who was sick * ! " iv Yu *.

las been on here to inform Miss Millie
)ay that she is sole heiress of his whole
ortune. It is somewhere in the neighbor
ed of half a million. There is over two
lundred thousand in bank. What d've
hink of that old fellow?"
Harry Cowper shrank like one who had
eceived a blow. He was silent and
" How, my boy !-don't it please you ?"
leraanded Jasper, with a show of aur
Harrv rallied and answered, with a shake
?f the head :
" No, Jasper, I am sorry for this."
"Sorry? And wherefore? I thought
rou had a particular regard for the lady."
Co- /ocr looked up, ' an 1 faintly smiled.
!t wa~ a smile, but there was pain in it :
" Jasper," he said seriously and earnest -
y, as one speaks in confidence to a dear
riend, " I love Millie Day, though I have
lever spoken to her as a lover. I have
>een waiting until I could insure her a
lome if she accepted my proffered hand.
\s vou know, I nave only a salary to de
>end upon, and a portion of that is set
ipart for the maintenance and education
>f my sister."
"Are you s* ious?" asked Groome.
' Will the coming of this fortune deter
'ou from pressing your suit ?"
"But, man alive! Is not the prize
vorth more than ever before? If Millie
Jay was worth winning when she had
?ardly a dollar of her own, what must she
>e now ?"
" She can bo no more to me now?" re
lied Harry. " It was Millie Day that 1
oved-Millie Day that 1 love still-and
io amount of worldly wealth can add to
he price I would have set upon her love
n return. But that is past. Had she
.emcined poor I had hoped ere long to
lave been able to offer her a home-a
tome where she could help me to find joy
" And do you mean to say, Harry, that
?ron. give her up ?"
" bhe is not mine to give up."
" 1 dare not press it. After so long a
tii?e my past silence might be miscon
strued and my claim be regarded as mer
"By Jove, old fellow! she'll make a
rich catch for somebody."
"Ko richer than before," said Harry
with solemn seriousness. " I tell you,
Jasper, that for the true man, seeking a
true wife, Millie Day, with only her truth
and her goodness for her own dower, would
bc a priceless boon. I should esteem it
thc richest gift this side of heaven. I
think if 1 had her for my companion I
should challenge the world to exceed my
"Harn' you're a fool !"
" If you "are to step out, I shall go in,
and try to win."
Harry winced, but betrayed no ill-feel
" You are your own master, Jasper."
" I shan't fie rivaling you ?"
"No. If Millie can love you, then it
is proved that she has not loved me."
" Then count me in the race for the
heiress. By Jove I I will make the at
tack this very night. I shall meet her at
Darwin's. Are you going?"
" No, I don't belong to that set. You
forgot that I am only a book-keeper."
" Yes, I remember. But you'll get
into a house one of these days. You'll
find it pleasant. The title ot Merchant
gives a fellow a lift in society, but I ain't
vain. If you'll go with me"I'll introduce
you at Darwin's.
" Then I'll go alone and be sure I'll
make love, bola and strong, to Miss Mil
" One word," said Harry, as his friend
waa upon the point of departing. There
was a pain mark upon his face, and hi?
bps quivered ; but he spoke calmly, though
with a palpable effort : " You will seek to
win the ?ovo of Millie Day. You may
succeed. If such should be the result,
Jasper, I pray you be true and faithful ;
for she is an angel and is worthy of all i
love and honor I"
" Never fear, old fellow. I'll make her
a good husband if I win her. Half a
million 1 2iounds ! Isn't that worth work
And with this Jasper Groorre turned
from the office, and Harry Cowper bowed
his head upon the edge of his desk.
" Shall iputup thebooks, Mr. Cowper ?"
Harry looked up, and saw the old de
livery clerk. :
"Ah,-you here, Phipps?"
" Yes, I've been ^copying permits. Shall
I put the books in the sate ?"
" Yes,-you may, if you please, j must
go round and call for my sister on my way
And Harry Cowper left the store. And
that night, when he was alone in his
chamber, his thoughts were sad and pain
ful. He had loved" Millie Day a long, long .
time ;-but he had not yet ventured to
speak of his love for reasons already made
known. But now a change had come
over the spirit of his dream. He asked
himself if he had decided rightly, and his
own sense of manly honor told him yes.
He felt that the maiden had been lifted
away from him, -and he dared not approach
her. What had he, a poor clerk, with an
orphan sister to support from his scanty
earnings, to do with offering his hand to
the heiress of half a million ? It would
be simple beggary.
Time passed on, and Harry Cowper was
punctual at his desk, and at his numble
home. He went nowhere else. On the
first of January his salary was raised five
hundred dollars a year. He had looked
forward to this event with high hopes.
He had once thought that upon a salary
of two thousand dollars he might venture
to ask Millie to become his wife. ' But the
bright dream had fled. Still he hailed the
increase aa a blessing, as he cpuld now do
more for his sister.
A month had passed firm the time of
the arrival of the attorney who had come
to place Millie Day in possession of her
fortune, and, as might" be supposed,' suitors
for her hand had been plentiful and per
sistent. Harry Cowyer was on his way
home when he fell in with Jasper Groome.
Friendly salutations were passed, and for
a time they chatted upon various light
topics. At length Jasper said :
" By the way, old fellow, it's all up with
Harry started and gasped for breath.
"She has refused me, plump, square
and flat. What d'ye think of that?"
" Refused you ?" repeated Harry, re
gaining his breath. " Has Millie Day re
"Yes. I guess she's after higher game.
There is a perfect army of suitors m her
irain, but I think she looks with the most
iavor upon old Corydon."
"Do you mean Warren Corydon, the
" Yes. He's worth a million and a half.
Depend upon it, she has her eye upon the
Harry's only response to this waa
' Pshaw !" And yet
But he would not reflect upon it. He
Tent home and tried to forget all about it,
md the more he tried to forget, the more.

Mrs. Sturgis han been a true friend to
loth Harry and his sister, and she was a
worthy and estimable woman, and after a
ittle consideration he said he would go.
The large drawing-room of the Sturgis
nansion was brilliantly lighted and the
assembly was select, not selected upon the
>asis of fashion, but culled with appropri
ite care from the realm of intellectual
forth ; Mrs. Sturgis had taken charge of
Jany's sister; and our hero was proceed
ng to join a friend whom he had discoY
ivered in another part of the room, when
ie met Millie Day. She changed color
dien she saw him, and for a moment it
ippearcd to Harry a: though she would
lave avoided the meeting, but she pres
?ntly rallied and greeted him with a smile,
?er" greeting* was very brief, however, and
vith a humed step she passed on, and
oined the old banker, Corydon.
No wonder that men gazed admiringly
lpon Millie Day as she moved past them.
Jne was beautiful in every sense. The
?ther might pray that his daughter could
ie like her; the.brother might pray that
Jod would bless him with such a sister ;
he child of sorrow and want could but
bank Heaven for bringing such a friend ;
ind the lover who might win her for his
>wn could surely declare that earth bore
lothing of womankind more bright and
Harry saw her give her hand to Cory
Ion-he saw Corydon tenderly draw that
land upon his arm-and then he saw
hem walk away together, engaged in
Ham- Cowper felt faint and dizzy; but
ie struggled against the load and turned
iway to other scenes; and yet other
scenes could not drive that painful scene
rom his mind. Could it be possible that
Millie was about to sell herself to Warren
Corydon ? He was old enough to be her
jrandfather. Yet he was a well kept old
nan-far more, manly and vigorous than
sverc many of those pinks of iashion who
Maimed to bc young men. Never before
bid Harry realized how deeply he had
loved the beautiful girl, nor how large a
space she occupied in his hopes of the fu
ture. Fully assured that she w.as lost to
him forever, he turned away to a window
ind leaned Iiis head upon his hands. He
thought it best for him to plead illness to
his hostess, and go to his home. He knew
full well that he could not appear himself
under such a cloud.
He was reflecting thus, when he felt a
light touch upon his arm, and on turning
he beheld Millie Day. She was gazing
wistfully up into his lace, and there was a
wondrous sparkle in her clear azure eye.
"Harry, I want to speak with you.
Will you come with me ?"
Without venturing to answer in words,
he followed her. She led the woy to a
small conservatory, where they stood by
an oleander in full bloom. A brief pause,
and an evident struggle, and then Millie,
looked up and spoke. Her face was radi
ant, and the sparkle of her eyes had deep
ened to a fervid glow.
" Harry, I have a difficult task to per:
form ; but I have prayed for strength, and
I think thc strength has come to me. Par
don me if I am brief, I seek your counsel.
You know that I have lately inherited a
" Yes-I know," said Harry, in a gasp
" And already," she pursued, " that for
tune begins to oppress me. Mr. Corydon
.holds it in charge for me, and ho will do
with it just as 1 say. It stands between
me and a very dear friend-a friend whose
love I prize above all the wealth of the
world-and I have called you here, Har
ry to ask you if I shall give my fortune
" Millie !-I do not understand."
Thrice she tried to speak, and her wcrds
failed her. At length she caught her lover
by the hand, and nor speech tiurst forth :
" Harry, do you know that old Peter
Phipps is one of the best and truest friends.
He was a clerk in my father's store. It
was my father who saved him from prison,
. and who lifted him up from the dreadful
slough of intemperance, and it waa my
ijiuv/mg . . -
father who recommended him to his pres
ent position, where he has been so manv
years. I was but a little child then, and
Peter used to toss rae in his hands. But
the dear old fellow has not forgotten me.
He is never afraid to call upon me^ for he
knows that my heart is warm and sympa
thizing toward him. He came to me,
Harry, and told me the conversation be
tween yourself and Jasper Groome, when
Jasper came and told you of my fortune.
He told me all you said, Harry,-all ;
all, and then I knew how truly you loved
me-how noble you were-and how blessed
must be the woman who could secure such
a heart-and I-I-0, Harry ! the fortune
has put this upon me. 6ay that you do not
blame me !"
Harry did not try to speak. He only
caught, the blessed being to his bosom, and
held her there, wilh her head pillowed
upon his shoulder--.until he could find
words for utterance..,
And so the fortune did not sever those
two pure and - loving hearts, after all. It
became a secondary .thing in their lives ;
and while they found their chiefest good
in the cultivation of [ those joys that sprang
from the old true love, their friends every
where-those in prosperity and those m
adversity-shared with them in the bless
ings of the fortune which Uncle Snyder
had left. And we may. add, that of all
who gained sunshine from Millie's fortune,
not one had more reason to be grateful
than had good old Peter Phipps.

PENDLETON ON PASSIV?SM.-Hon.
George H. Pendleton has filed his protest,
in the shape of a letter to certain political
friends in Woostor, against the disband
ment of thc Democratic party. He says :
" Its powerful organization enters every
villagt in thc land, and numbers among
its adherents nearly one-half thc people
as intellectual, as patroitic, as unselfish,
as any of their fellow-citizeus. They are
too numerous to be cowardly. They are
too patriotic to be lukewarm. They are
too sincere in their purposes and convic
tions to be driven to despondency by ten
ye^rs of reverses. They nave shown con
stancy in defeat as well as wisdom in vic
tory. If I understand their feelings, they
will neither disband their organization nor
flee the field before the contest commences.
Either course, they believe, would yield
undisputed sway to the present Admin
istration, which could then give undivided
attention to the deserters from its ranks.
An advancing army, with the enemy ei
ther dispersecl or in flight, never loses di
visions or regiment, or even companies,
and is generally able to pick off or to pick
up treacherous or thoughtless stragglers."
Ho liveth long who liveth well ;
AU else is life but flung away;
He liveth longest who can tell
Of true things truly dono each day.
Then fill'each hour with what will last;
Buy up the moments as they go ;
The Ute above When this is past
Is the ripe fruit of life below.
Sow love, and taste its fruitage nure;
Sow peace, and reap its harvest bright;
Sow sunbeams on the rock and moor,
And find a harvest home of light.

The Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Evening Journal gives
the following sketch of Judge Bond :
As many papers in the country are
making a great hue and cry about
the Ku Klux in South Carolina, and
the administration of justice by Judge
Bond, it is but just to let them know
who Judge " Huge Lummux" Bond
is, and some of his antecedents. He
is well known in this city, as are the
means he used to secure his present
appointment, and confirmation after
appointment, the latter being strong
ly opposed by Chawles Augustus, of
the Plunderer's . Organ of your city,
and who is now his chief eulogizer.
I have been informed by reliable
persons, that when he waa Judge of
the Criminal Court of your city, he
compelled the crier of said court,
(who was once in the dog business in
Baltimore, also an engine house keep
er, but now a postoffice detective,) to
divide his salary (which was larger
than that of the Judge) with him.
He (the Judge) was the delegate to
the Methodist Episcopal Church Con
ference at Winchester, Virginia, (just
before the war) who seceded from the
Conference because of his strong pro
slavery views, which were antagonis
tic to the majority of the Conference.
He it was, while a Judge of the
Criminal Court of your city, and as
such a conservator of the peace, beg
ged an officer of the United States
army to release from his custody Ma
jor Harry Gilmor, (a prisonerpf war,)
in Baltimore, and send . is guard
home, so that the Union men could
hang him (Major Gilmor) to a lamp
post ; and he it was who caused the
arrest of many Southern sympathi
zers in your city during the late war,
by means of his influence with the
commanding generals and their pro
While this prating Judge professes
Christianity, he never was known to
.improve any opportunity for sowing
the good seed, or of teaching, either
by precept or example, the lessons
which we are taught to believe as
coming direct from the fountain-head,
and certainly his actions do not ap- .
pear to be influenced by the constant
kindliness and gentle hearing of those
who understand Christianity to sig
nify not only faith, purity and de
votion, but also, that peace and good
will among men are its fundamental
principles and essential elements. No,
none of these ! Duplicity is his forte,
and has frequently and faithfully
rv] bu* . '
Since the brilliant Carl Schurz has bro
ken with Grant, and it is seen that he
will cany with him a large proportion of
the German vote, the President and Ins
friends in thc Senate cannot conceal their
hatred of thc entire foreign element. It
cropped out yesterday in the remarks of
Nye, the Nevada buffoon, who sneering
ly alluded to Mr. Sehurz's foreign birth
as a convincing argument that he knew
nothing of statesmanship, or thc princi
ples of Republican Government. And
then Mr. Nye, a native-born statesman,
(!) added his conception of "the true
spirit of American institutions." He
said that for his part he " would never
consent to give thc rebel leaders a right
to take part in thc Government. Ho
would keep them browsing on tho out
side till their hair grow as long as Ne
buchadnezzar's, and if that was not states
manship, then he did not know any thing
about it.-' Thereupon there was mirth
in the Senate. The country will agree
with Mr. Nye that he doesn't know any
thing about it. Profane people would
call his statesmanship damphoolishncss.
The Partridge the Agriculturist's
At a meeting of horticulturists in Illi
nois strong ground was taken against the
destruction of these birds. To show how
useful this bird is, it was stated that a
flock of partridges were seen running
along tho rows of corn just sprouting,
and seeing them engaged in something
which was believed to bc pulling up the
young plants, one of them was killed and
its "crop" examined, winch was found
to contain one cutworm, twenty one
striped bugs, and over one hundred
chinch bugs. Another member related
that he had adopted measures to protect
the bird, and that they had become so
numerous and tame that hundreds of
them, after snow falls, could bc seen in
Iiis barnyard with the fowls, where they
were fed. As a result of their presence
upon his premises his wheat crop was
unusually abundant, while in many oth
er places not far off the chinch-bug and
other insects had destroyed half thc crop.
Thc following -story is going the rounds
on Butler, which is pretty good :
" While Ben bossed New Orleans, he
informed a waggish but very ill Confeder
ate officer, then sick at his home in the
city, that he must take the oath or clear
out. This order was peremptory. The
Confederate demurred as much as possible,
alleging that he was used up anyhow, that
he didn't believe in the old government at
all, and that the odds were that he would
soon die and secede permanently. It was
of no use ; so he got Ben to "administer
the oath himself. Ben complied, holding
the book behind the back ot the neck so
as to bring it within range of his service
able orb. The officer swallowed the
oath with sincere and suggestive grimaces.
At the close he seemedrejuvenated, and
he asked Butler, "Ain't I as good a union
man as you now, General ?" " Yes, if you
live up to that oath," rejoined Ben. " And
I can abuse the South as loud as the worst
of you ?" inquired the officer. " To your
heart's content," replied the Beauty.
"Well, then, General," added the sick
man, rising in bed, and fixing Butler's one
eye, with his two, " if you and I had that
d-d old rebel, Lee, in our hands, wouldn't
we steal his watch ?" The oath taker got
four days in the guardhouse, but he said
he was satisfied with the price he paid
for it. _ _
}Q?T Tho following conundrum was
propounded to us the other day by a
noted wag : " What is the difference be
tween a town bell and Gov. Scott? One
i peals from the steeple, and the other
don't" We have no comments to make
, upon this 8ly inuendo against the Gover
