During September, 1863. when our command
wns passing throuigh this State to go to Chattanoo0
g& to meet the enemy, one of the above mention
ed young officers and the wri:er obtaied a short
furlough to conte by homre. D)uring thiat period,
and just before their arrivail the youing people at
Bracebridge had been .twusinlg themselves' and
.their-friends in getting up charades arnd' ta&lkan.
vi ant, for '-hich the front rooms were ad.nirably,
adapted as has beenl mentioned in a formner art'cle.
They wereassisted'iery materially in thbe'e amu e
-met by a young lady from Florida, an old frien'd
and acquaintance of the family who was also a
*native of N-,- but had lef t the place at -an
early age only to return on occasional visits.
This young lady, whom I shall call Stella, from
her general-brightness and intelligence, was quite
an acquisition in the chatrade and tablean
ukking.' She understood stag~e efee admirably
and her own performances and the groupings of
thi rest of the characters we-re very fine. The
charades and tableaus were enacted in the draw
ing:room whilst the small select -audience were
sated in the sitting room opposite acrToss the
*wide entrance, and as both rooms openied with
* wide foIding dool:s the spectacle was thus viewed
to an advantage. The "lady eba:elaine" ~ of
Bracebridge, who was rather an invalid at that
time,was reciiog on ai lountge in the sitting room
dressed in most becoming style in a white mnorn
ing robe or dressing "ow", over which she wore
a white merino opera cloak trimmed with a wide
border of blue silk, whilst rt her throat the dress
was clasped wit' a v'ery large jet cross brooch
set with gold filigree work. Tiedun:eresting lan
guor of the invalid, the very becoming attire and
the graceful reetiuing position upon the lounge
was it:,elf a tableau, as one of the male guests
remarked who was desirotus of paying, a comnphi
mient to the hostess. There was only one draw
back to the evening's entert ainmen~Ct, and that
was the absetnce ot one of' the young ladies of the
household, the eldest, the young lady with The
Grecian name formerly mentioned, whose presence
was necessary to the comuplete and perfect en

for her amiable character rendered her univer

general acquaintance. Ther!e was 1no hauteur or

The Augusta Constitutionalist fears that th.e
high price for cotton will cause the planters to
neglect other crops, and gravely speculates upon
the urob ability of a famine in 1887. It says:
Mn-y~of our planters, ifnc a' a greater por
tion, allured by the high prices of cotton, are a
bout to give their chief attention to the culture
of this staple ignoring, to a considerable degree
or wholly, the production of cereals. We can
not hut deem this course unwise. It will not do,
in the experimental era in which we find our
selees, to count too confidently upon a certain
vield of cotton. Many conditions conspire to
bring success in this kind of cultivature and,
many conspire to insure disastrons failure. La
bor may be delinquent when most imperative,
viz: when the grass is rank in .the field--and
thn?the rnn isjdoomei -.-The men me not
be propitious, and worms may sally forth like
guerriUlas, blighting whatever they touch. It is
just as well to prepare against any evil contin
gency, rather than take a gambler's hazard of
fortuitous results. We are strongly of the opin
ion that while a due portion of each plan.ter's
land should he given to-cotton, that an equally
judicious apportionment should be set aside for
corn. If but a small crop ofecorn is raised in the
South, we gravelv appretend partial famine in
]867. Many depend upon the West for corn, in
excange f'or their cotton, but should the cotton
crop run short, how shall they be enabled to
purchase breadstuffs ? Speculators control the
corn as well as other.markets,,. and we need not
hope for succor from them any further thtan our
ability to pay. Miserable indeed will be our es
tate if such be the case, and the very wretched
ness of this condition will be aggravated by the
reflectionthat we will hav'e none to' blame but
our grasping selves. Fervently do we pray that
such a consummation will never come, but its
very possibility should make us wise in time for
prepaation. We are in a bid streak of luck,
and famine may be in the cale:zder of our future
trials, if we do not heed. We .call upon our
worthy planters to p,onder this suggestson, and
act upon it,. if it be deserving of consideration.
We know that many of them hold similar opin
ions, and trust that all will be guided . by a spirit
of justice-justice to themselves and justice to
those dependent oa them for supplies.

m:nROISM OF THE CAPTAIN.
At 2 P. M., the few men who were dostined to
survive to bring the sad story bome-sixteen of
the erew and three of the psssengers-deter
mined to trust themselves to the chances of the
sea, lowered away the pinnace, and launched
her clear of the ship. These men called to the
Captain to come with them, but this brave and
steadf ist English seaman declined, saying, "No,
I will go down with the passengers, but I wish you
God speed, and safe to land." The boat then
pulled away, and live minutes after the London,.
with two hundred and. seventy souls on board,
went down, and all was over.
INCIDF.NTS OF HEROISM AND SVFFErING.
Among the passengers were two stout old peo
ple, who had become favorites on board, and
who had been s-nt for by their only son. The
poor creatures; on learning that they must
drown, took a small quantit.y of brandy and went
below todie together in the cabin.
G. V. Brooke, the tr-igedian, exerted himself
incessantly. One of the passengers who saw
him has said, "le had worked wonderfully, and,
in fact, more bravely than any man on board that
ship." To the steward, who made himself known,
Mr. Brooke said, "If you succeed in saving your
self, give my farewell to the people of Mel
One of the p-issengers in the boat-Mr. John
Wilson, a' rative of Montrose-went down into
the cabin and endeavored to persuade a friend
Mr. John Hickman, Solicitor, of Southampton
to attempt to save his life by going into the boat;
but, after being entreated, he said: "No I
proni1ed my wife and children to stay by them,
and I will do so." The water was then a consid
erable depth 'in the lee side of the saloon, indeed,
over the top of the berths ; and he asked Mr.
Wilson to help him in removing his four children
to the windward side out of the water. This -as
done, and then he shook hands with Mr. Wilson,
with "Good-bye, Jack," and parted from his
friends forever. When last seen Mr. Hickman
was standing in a row nith his wife and children.
THE CAPTAIN'S LAST ACT.
The Captain, who was walking calily up and
down the poop, had refused to leave the ship, but
jast before the boat put off he had the consider
ation and the presence of mind to give those in
the boat their "course." He told them that it
lay East Northeast to Brest, which was correct.
Before the boat could be got off it was in great
danger of being sucked down with the ship,
which was rapidly settling beneath the water.
A THOUSAND GUINEAS FOR A LIFE.
At that moment those in the boat were pite
ously called upon by a lady about twenty-three
years of age, who, with a face which was, it is
stated, livid with horror, shrieked out an offer of
"a thousand guineas if you'll take me in." ~But
in that solemn hour millious o1 money would
have been accounted valueless, and to returr.
must hare resulted in destruction all.
- THE LAST GL.IMPSE OF rT1E DlooMED.
Two passengers were seen with life belts, but
probably none were alive when they came to the
surface. The spectacle was only to be seen, for
'in tbe din of the tempest no cry from the sink
ing multitude could be heard, and soon not a
vetg as visible. As the ship sunk, it was
sen ha llon deck were driven forward, not
by water, but by a tremendous and overpower
ing rush of air from below, which, as it escaped
through the deck as well as the hatches, impelled
all on deck forward with violence, and their
dreadful struggle must have been soon ended.
It was remarked that the third officer, who was
nae Angel, stood to the last at his post at' the
dlonkey engine, which was employed in working
even as the vessel disappeared.
THE PASSENGERS SHOOTING THEMSELVES TO AvoID
Several revolvers were seen in the hands of
piassengers, who did not conceal their intention
of shooting themselves when the last moment
came, preferring to meet their death, when in
evitable, by a bullet rather than by drowning.
The steward, indeed, overheard an offer by the
owner of a pistol, to a friend, that he would shoot
him if he desired. The well mneant offer at that
time was declined, and. whether these intentions
were carried into execution is not known, but nlo
repoi ts of fire-arms were heard as the steamer

to solicit from them a renewal of that extensive
business connection which, for a qjuarter of a cen
~tury has been uninterrupted save by the great
pubilic calamity to-which I have adverted.

in an open and candid attempt to cxpoQe these
wholesale frauds ; no time nor expense has been
spared to accomplish this salutary purpose, and
to place before my filends and the public geaeral.
ly, at the lowest market price, and in swh quan
tities as mi:ht suit their convenience, a truly gen
uine imported article.
Twenty five years business transactions with
the largest and most respectable exporting houfs
in France and Great 1-ritain have afforded me un
surpassed facilities for supplying our home mar
ket with Wines, Liquors and Liqmures of the
best and most approved brands in Europe, in ad
dition to my own distillery in Holland for the
manufacture of the "Sehiedamit Sehnapps."
The lItter, so long tested id approved by the
medical Faculties of the Un:ed States, West In
dies and South America as an invaluable thera
peutic, a wholksome, pleasant and perfectly safe
beverage in all climates aid during all seasons,
quickly excited the cupidity of the home man
ufacturers and venders of a spurious article un
der the same name.
I trust that I have, after much toil and ex
pense, surrounded all my importations with safe
guards and directions which with ordinary cir
cumspection w:l insure their delivery, as I re
ceive them from Europe, to all my customers.
I would, however, recommend in all cases
where it is possible, that orders be sent direct to
my depot, 22 Beaver Street, New York, or that
pruchases be made of my accredited agents.
In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies,
&c., I have a considerable supply of old tried for
eign wines, embracing vintages of many years
past, bottled up before the commencement of the
war, which I can especially recommend to all
connoisseurs of th, se r tre luxuries.
In conclusion, I would specially caU the early
attention of my Southern customers to the, ad
vantage to be derived by transmitting their or
ders without loss of time, or calling personally at
the depot, in order to insure the fulfilment of
their orders out of the present large and well Le
Feo 21-Im 22 Beaver-Street, New York.
