i never had any conception of a city until
v i I had reached this restless and over
grown placa. The din, the bustle, the
?oiifusion and the delirium pervading
.very inch of thia focus of the New
World, made mo ?Pen m7 ey?s and
sigh for some situation on th? silent
sands of Sahara. Soon, however, thin
"feverUh uprett" becomes contagion*
and even pleasant. Tho most quiet
stranger quiokly learns to float upon ?thin
surging wave of modern civilization
No man ar" ust? will visit New York
without trying to see lier great Central
Park. Ii is the lungs of the Metr?poli?,
and so handsomely and cunningly em
bellished os to suggest an idea of tbe
tint Paradise whero Adam and Eve
spent their honeymoon with the light of
p?rf ct innocence upon their brows, and
the glow of genuine happiness in their
hearts. The carriage way?, the bridle
paths and the pedestrian promenades re
veal many a view of enchanting loveli
ness, easy tQ imagine, but hard to de
scribe. This famous pleasure ground, on
January 1st, 1?T4, had cost $13,902,013.
It comprise? SfaO acre?, of which 143 aro
aivered hythe Croton resevoirs and over
4:> acre? by the waters of the artificial
lake* The Park ia divided Into two
parts by th? new reservoir. The South
ern portion of the grounds ha? been
beautified most, but the Northern ktc
tiou is not without sotno peculiar attrac
The Mall is a level, broad and ?haded
walk, starting just East of a magnifi
cent marble arch, and extending North
ward for nearly a quarter of a mile. It
passes under the carriage drive which is
here upheld by a stone terrace, itsolf an
elegant and costly structure. The Mall
ha* on each side a double row of Elm
trees. To the South of the Mall there in
a point which commands a view through
this long walk, across the terrace, the
lake, the higher ground of the ramble
beyond, and terminating where a lofty
ower bas been erected at the edge of the
reservoir. This vista is the glory of the
landscape sardanlrm in tL?t I*?rk, ?ml ii
ld so ingeniously arranged a* to make
one think the distance is several mile?
instead of about a quarter of a in ile. In
obtaining this effect, great regard was
had to the proportions of the Mall, and
also to the color of the foliage about the
heights of tho ramble. The statuary
makes these lovely prospects seem to be
haunted by thelmind, the beauty, the
genius, the reminiscence, the civiliza
tion and peculiarities of every land and
dime. Here j? Sir Wal'er Scott careless
ly leaning upon H rock end lo*t i?>
thought ; th' r? is Shakspeare with coins
sal brow and an eagle eye ; amoru: th?
tall trees, the Indian hunter ia seen look
ing eagerly for bis game; near one of
the entrances to the Park, Alexander
Von Humbolt seems to gaze at the uni
verse with untold nftectlon ; near the
Merchants* gate, the Rtatueof Commorce
carries the imagination to every nation
ality beneath the sun ; among the dow
ering shrubbery, Robert Burns is think
ing nf Mary in Heaven ; not far away
from the dusty drive, Daniel O'Connell
inusos with troubled brow over the
wrongs of Erin ; the Falconer revives
annie of the scenes of tho middle ages;
and tho tigres* in bronze carryinp food
to her cubn bring* Hindoostan bofore
the eye of the mind.
The most romantic and the most sur
prising locality, that I could find, 1? f the
Cave" at the Northwestern extremity of
the Park. ?hls ia partly artificial and
partly natural. After going down a steep
path, the visitor enters a gloomy cavern ;
turning to the left and walking on, the
Min light is quieViy regained at a secluded
point upon th?. Lake. Running up a
flight of rough stone Pteps, he leaves the
rave by another route, which lead* under
a wran Ka arch connecting a brace of vine
covered eliffs. I was so much pleased
with this far-famed cavo that I had to
pass through it th- second time. The
Rum bio i ? a mazy labyrinth of parallel
paths made cool, fragrant and umbrage
ous by forest trees, glistening evergreen?,
clinging vines and millions of sweet
(lowers. Bewildered, and yet perfectly
at home communing with nature, you
begin to think all your ploasant dreams
have been true prophets. But even here
there i* nothing like perfect repose. You
hear the uproar of the datant city, and
to this is added such a chorus of screech
ing, bellowing and roaring as to startle
you from some? entrancing reverie. TaW

The newspapers und merchants of this
great mart are du<cussing tho probabili
ties of a trade revi. al. They say it will
come next fall ; but toe wish is no doubt
fa Mi er to the opinion. Whether com
merce be depressed or buoyant, the Mer
chant Princes h?re always manage to get
Che bulk of our cotton money. Tftat is
tho lion's ?hare, and these ?barp trader?
ought to be satisfied with it. On the
olker hand, we of the South ought to de
vote one season to a ri^id economy aud a
.hort crop of cotton backed by an over
flowing crop of grain. Let us do this
in self-defence, and as a matter of choice.
Such a policy would make us iudopend
. ont and self-reliant for generations to
como. A united effort in that directicn
would enable ns to throw off the yoke of
financial 'thralldom, which is moro so
ductive and more injurious then political
vassalage. The bankrupt law has been
repealed, and we must show the world
that no such statute is needed in our
aection of the country.

advertisements here is always^'amusing,
and sometimes instructive. The devo
teeS&pp'fashitm facilitate commercial
transactions in a wonderful manner. The
p^or man throws oft* his coat, and swings
a couple of huge placards from his
shoulders to let the world knew what h's
employer lias to sell. I do believe there
are men here who would walk for a
Doctor and an Undertaker, at the same
time, by suspending a skeleton at his
breast, and a coffin at his back.
Philadelphia is an interesting city. Its
history and its associations are thrilling
and suggestive. I stopped here on Wed
nesday last to revisit the scene of our
big show. The main building, the Art
Gallery, Horticultural Hall and Machin
ery H?U still look bright, stately and
elegant, but tho Centennial Grounds are
worse neglected, and seem more lone
some than I expected. A nameless
beauty and an indescribable glory have
winged their Hight to oV\er climes, and
thither has the great world, with it*
elude st products, congregated, and set
up new temples of art and of science.
Asl ^trolled alone the familiar avenu*??
and the shady pathways, vlowlnir th*
relies <>f departed splendor, I seemed tn
be walkinir in a dream. Had I boen
asleep a hundred year? and come tn?
shabby bi-centennial, typical of our Na
tional decay ; or had the contennary ex
position been protracted until Ichabod
had knocked the whole adair into "pi?"
On H card huntr up in the stree' car thnt
carried mo to the main entrance, T read
thin notice: "The Permanent Interna
tional Exhibition, covwrinvr twenty-ni e
?ere* of exhibits, machinery in motion,
with music and otlyir attractions, is op< n
for the seaton of 1S7?"." And if I had
not seen tho Centennial ir. its bloom; I
could have enjoyed this exhibit of fine
ry and machinery, the paintings and tho?
statues, the appliances to luci li tito edu
ction and tho thousand and - one exotics
of softest hues and rarest perfumes, to
say nothing of thc mu-ic, whicli seuned
to vi? wi*h tho dulcet and exulting
strains of 1ST.' ! I was glad to see that
the quaint, unique and beautiful facade
of tho Egyptian exhibit has been loft un
touched iu tho main building. The
Spanish front als~> remains to remind
ono of the past. Both the Egyptian and
the Spanish frontige illustrate the Na
tional architecture, and di lier only as
ono star difforelh from another. I was
rejoiced bu? "o behold once more tho fine
collection ot animais, shrubbery and
minerals belonging to Mrs. Maxwell,
the great Rocky Mountain huntress.
This exhibit, which is characteristic ol
the far Wost, is well worthy of a ven*
<. ireful examination. I never expect t ?
see a more brilliimt specimen of archi
tecture than Horticultural Hall : if I do,
I will try to desi be it in full.

Wilmington Delaware, is au important

handsomest building sites in A merit a.
The sinning waters of the bay are bound

This was a disappointment to mc, asl
wanted to glance at that section of the
"Old Dominion." NearCulpeperC.il ,
there is a fine view ol' the Blue Ridge
Mountains. The grain fields, thc mead
ows, tlie hay ricks, the little corn and
absence of cotton, showed that a nights
travel had taken us fur away from th*
long-leaf pines A shower ol' rain fell
daring tho night and thus we saw the
country to an advantage, and without
being blinded by clouds of dust. " Ma
nassa Junction," exclaimed the Con
ductor at an unpretending railroad vil
lage. The man of tickets seemed io be
suddenly converted into ono of the
heralds of history, and as such, I wanted
to ask him a few questions. But ho was
too busy to talk about mc haunted locales
of this region. A friendly darke}' in
formed me that tho battle grounds were
f .ur or five miles to the Northwest, and
t'tithrr my visual organs were naturally
turned. But naught like ghostly shad
ow?, or the red dragons of war wore to

landscape and the soft, blue skies of a
peaceful Heaven !
From the Congarce to the heart ol
North Carolina, last Tuesday, the roads
were dry and dusty. The crops of this
section are not green and tlourishinp
like those of good old Edgefield. I have
so?>n no rogion of country looking more
attractive than the pine vicinity and the
Ridge neighborhood. Columbia look?
rather dull. When the Legislature hands
begin to assomble next fall from the
Kist, from the Wost, from North and
from the South, perhaps our State capi
tal will then become the scene of a ?hon
and .. quick work, undertaken for the
benefit of tho toiling Taxpayers. So
mott it be !
The weather is rainy in New York to
day. The days being longer here than
in South Carolina, I am not astonished
to find tho heat moro intense in this etty
than in Edgefield. To-morrow I sail for
Europe on the Ethiopia, whit- lauds at
Glasgow, Scotland. I will send yon
another letter at my earliest convenience.

LIBERIA XOT A PARADISE.
One of tho greatest cheats and delus
ions of our , day is the Liberian move
ment among the colored people. Utterly
ignorant of the country to which they
wish to emigrate, .?pd deceived and
hood winked by the specious and false
statements of designing persons who are
trying to make money at their expense,
the colored poople fall as easy prey to
tho rapacious sharks, and only lind ont
how terribly they have boen "sold"'
when tiley fall victims to fever, or land
strangers on the shores of a country that
is every thing else than a land of prom
The New York Tribune is un intensely
Radical sheet. It cannot tic suspected or
working against tho colored people. It
has lately inierviawed the returning
United States Ministor to Liberia, who is
an intelligent colored man, and who
spent many years in that country. His
name is J. Milton Turner, and he is a
pure-blooded neg -o. What he says ought
to bo believed by those of Ins own race.
We vive some extracts from the pub
lished interview :
"Liberia." says Mr. Turner, "is a Re
public, with a government modelled gen
erally altor that of tho Uuited States. It
is ordinarily peaceable, there having
been no revolution sinon 1871, when the
President and other oflicers were killed.
The financial system is in a very bad
ennriiiion ; the country has no money.
President Gardner, in a recent in- mr ural
address, said that thnre was not$<.00C in
the hands of tho government. There is
a debt of a million, on which (Hoy o*>?
mil pay tho interest. Tho current expen
ses an: more than they realizo from
taxes. Tho most nf the natives are very
poor and are content to remain so. The
mau wears a handkerchief about Iiis
loins and another at his neck. His wife
is attired in the samo way, ai.d his chil
dren go naked. If ho hus enough to eat
he is satisfied, but he hates all intruders,
as he considers those to bo who como
"What is your opinion of the pros
pects ol' these negro colonists from
America, and of the probability of thoir
success !" was asked.
"I think.' was ibo reply, 'that the
scheme of the Emmigratinn Society, and
. if ttl?* ??thor similar organisations to ool
?mize Africa from tho Southern states j.s
.inn of the irrealest frauds of this centll
,-v> * e They speak the truth WII-T
ihfV sav that immigrants will find the
soil fertile, that constant summer pro
rails, lhat there are valuable mineral*,
beautiful landscapes, luxuriant vegeta
tion ami tropicul fruits of every descrip
tion. But they don't add that only the
most primitive agricultural implements
are used, finch as cutlasses, bill-hooks,
tte. and that neither horses, mules ncr
donkevscan stand the climate on the
seacoast. Although it is summer the
year through, tho miasma, caused hythe
heavy rains alternating willi hot snn
shine, produces sickness half the year
During the rest of year the extreme heat
of tho sun causes such lassitude that Tew
foreigners can endure any work under
lt. In fact, after ono has once had the
lover-as nearly every one doe* who
goes there-he is never strong again."
There is a great deal moro of the same
sort. This is not an encouraging viow.
Our advice to the colored people is to
live where you are, and work oat your
destiny as best you may. It is the most
hazardous and unwise thing you can
ever do when you break up and go to
that land of savages and sickness and
extreme poverty and death.
We must givo ono more extract from
tho ex-Minister's account of Liberian
life and theoxperienceof the unfortunate
and deceived immigrant. Ile says:
"These societies," answered Mr. Tur
ern, "promise six months'support to
the immigrants. At tho expiration of
that time the colonists are left helpless
and without moans of livelihood, igno
rant of the ways of the cnuntrv. hating
tho native and hated by him, arid proba
bly sulfuring from,disease. At the de
parture of every vessel for America
there aro many who beg to be taken
back. Tho captains refuse to carry them,
even if they have money to pay their
passages, for, the captains ?av. if thoy
allow these men to go back, arid tell of
tho actual condition of affairs in the
colony, the Em migration Society will no
longer employ them. And so thc inmi -
grants remain to suirerand die."
What a fearful picture of misery, de
sertion and ruin ! There is no remedy
and no relief until death comos, and
thus closes tho sad tragedy. Take heed
to tho warning given.

consumpt n boars a grater ratio to the
whole nnjber than tlRiT'of any other
three dise?s together. Moreover, in

univ agra i. The inlluence of the at

oithor Floila or L'oloradT>can afford the

The cure fi consumption depends upon
two chscntil conditions: 1st, the arrest
of tho aha'mal breaking down of the
tissues, wich prevents emaciation, and
2d, the res ?ration of healthy nutrition,
in'order tt ?top the formation of tuber
culous maier. Fulfill these conditions,
and consu iption is as curable as fever.
To fulfill 1 ese conditions the required
rempdy mst increase tho appetite, favor
the a simuation of food, and enrich the
blood, thc] retarding the development
of tubercle. To accomplish-this, a more
powerful ?Iterative than Dr. Pierce's
Golden Aldieal Discovery has never
boen dUccrercd. At the samo time, it
soothos tb]irritation of the nervous KVH
tem prodded by violentcaughing, which
in its tufnso often leads to "more serious
results. Bio uso of " expectorants" in
consumption is absolutely suicidal. For
while removing the turbercles already
formed, they produce yet more serious
results byi??laming and destroying the
sound and healthy tissues. Consump
tion requires a remedy that-CHill sooth"
whle it relieves, harsh medicines, but add
fuel to the Hame that already threatens
to consume the system. The Golden
Medical Discovery fulfills these condi

remedy yet discovered to allay and ar
