The following well-timed remarks were
extracted from the Greenville Enterprise:
It so happens that most of the news
papers of South Cacolina, with many
excellencies, are yet in all that relates to
State improvement, mere fossils of the
past. They are fully alive to the discus
sion of the Radicals, and leave untouched
and unq-sestioned the most practically
oppressive and ruinous laws of their own
State,and leave unrebuked the laws which
oppress and beggar them, their wives
and children, and drive them from the
State, or keep them here to be arrested
and imprisoned for debts, or to give bail,
endangering their friends and cramping
themselves for twenty years' time to
come. Not a paper in Charleston even
utters a sentiment adverse to imprison
ment for debt; yet they wish to see
their city prosper, so do we all. Let
them learn a lesson from New York ;
they know something of what conduces
to commercial prosperity, and of what
makes a people and cities prosperous in
money matters, in population,' and of
what makes a great city;. and yet with
all the natural advantages of New York,
years ago.she added this additional ad
vanta:'e. Her customers cannot be ar
rested for debt when they visit her, and
they go there. In Charleston, her cus
tomers owing a debt there, or anywhere,
may be arrested on it when they go
there, and they don't go.
We feel justified, therefore, in expect
ing some support from the Charleston
business men, who may sympathise with
our views of State policy. Certain we
are, Charleston would gain by anything
calculated to encourage customers, old
and new, to visit her without the fear of
being put in jail for old debt', or new
debts. There are many other things in
which we think we can claim sympathy
from Charlestonians. We purpose di
recting some attention to the abuses of
our railroads which contributes so much
to her injury ; they can be remedied. It
is time that we discuss the things that
male for our relief and prosperity. The
Radicals, bad as they ray be represented,
are not our only enemies.
As OMIsots Sm.-The Richmond
Times has the following notice of a very
ominous sign of degercracy in this
That r.olitica and social demoraii, .
tion go hand-in-hand, we have a l,ainful
illustration at present in ma::y of the
large Northern cities. Tte decent, con
aerrative press teems with strictures
upon the once exraordinary, but now
eommon, spertacle of drunkenness among
the fashiotiable women of the people of
"grand moral ideas." That such sights
Were common in Sodomn and Comorrah
before a fate of brimstone and fire fell
upon those places, we have every reason
to believe. We know, from the reiterated
assertions of history, tha~t all the corrupt
and wicked nations of antiquity com
menced rotting and going to pieces in
this way. When woman takes to liquor,
the house or community in which such
practices prevail may be safely consider
ed to be in a very desperate way. There
is no sign of the decadence of popular
virtue and morality so alarming as this.
The mnissionetl woman in America has
heretofore been a high and lofty one.
She has been the custodian of those vir
tues aad proprieties which have not been
safe in the keeping of the sterner sex. it
is a most gloomy and ominous symptom
of social and moral disintegration, when
we see females, moving in circles deemed
respectable, fall victims to vices and de
baucher:es which have hitherto been
assigned almost exclusively to the u,ale
sex. All moral and religipus barriers
maust b'e broken down ini a community
where women, with features of loveliness,
and draped with all the adornments of
the latest fashions, stagger from their
carriages and reel through the throngs
of Broadway, in the blaze of mid-day and
the glare of gas-light. Rome saw such
appalling sights when plunging to her
doom, all reekmng with corruption and
wickedness. But has the North, in the
pride and zenith of its boasted power and
virtue, come to this ? If so, let her mourn
in all her borders.
YALUE OF THE POL-ND STE.RLING IN~
CURRECaYc.-lt is difficult to explain the
seeming mysteries of foreign exchange to
one who is wholly uninitiated. A ster
ling bill is a draft payable in English
pounds, shilling and pence, called "ster
ling money." A sixty days' bill is pay
able (with grace) sixty days from sight ;
bills were formerly payable on presenta
tion ; but the custom of granting three
days' grace after sight came into general
use in England, and thus "bhort sight"
is used to designate those bills legally
payable three days after presentation.
The rate (109j) for sixty days' bills,
describes the price at which the drawer
undertakes to pay a pound sterling to
the holder in London sixty-three days
after presentation there for acceptance.
IL is not 109j on the actual value of the
pound in the Federal money, but
on a certain conventior al rate-namely
$4.44. Thus $4.44x109I- equal to
$4.86.6 (omitting fractions.) The latter
is the value to be paid in gold here for
each pound sterling of the bill of exchange.
Now $4.86.6x1361 equal to $6.64.8
which is the value in paper currency of
the pound at the rates given. The rule
therefore is o'ovious: Multiply four dol
lars, forty-four and four-tenth cents by
the quoted rate of exchange ; that will
give the cost here of one pound of
exchange in gold. Then multiply this
product by the quotation of gold : that
will produce the cost of the pound in
paper money. This is a very simple
process, and one which, it is probable,
every reader will be able to understand.

During our recent visit to Columbia,
we learned that these very popular artists
contemplate removing from that city.
This information will be received with
regret by their many friends, and we
may venture to say by the whole up
country, for th~ey have 'gained a iide
spread celebrity - for their beautiful and
life-like pictures which is not confined to
their own narrow limits. A visit to thei.r
gallery is a treat well worth going f>r,
and reveals the fact that it is scarcely
possible to conceive of the art being car
ried to any greater perfection. Wearn
is certainly a master ini his branch of
business, anid Bix stands preeminent in
his particular line, and should they in
deed seek a wider and more lucrative
field, we see no reason why they will not
realize the benefits of their genius and
Iability. Wherever they may go we
wish them unbounded success, but trust
they will think well on it ere doing so.
We were particularly struck with their
exquisite Miniature Portraits on Porce
lain, which are equal in beauty and fin
ikh to Ivory Portraits, nor are their
colored Photographs the least feature of
attraction. We believ, that it is their
intZention to visit our town ere long, and
'oefore leaving the State, when an oppor
tunity will be afforded our citizens of
sitting for their pictures.
The Lannena Why.
The following are the reasons given by
the Arkansas Legislature fo'- rejecting
the Co,nstitutional amendment :
1st. Arkansas does not know that the
amendment was adopted by such a Con
gress as the Constituti on provides for,
one third of the States being unrepresen
ted in it. 2d. It was never submitted
to the President for sanction as the,Con
stitution requires. 3d. The enormous
power it seeks to give Congress would
virtually abolish all local and domestic
State laws. 4th. It seek~ to force negro
suffrage on the States, as shown in the
second section, while the fifth and third
sections disfranchise the wisest and best
citizens of the State, who, having perfor
med all the conditions of surrender and
general amnesty, are entitled restoration
to tbe status they held before the war,
and there is no reasons for believing its
adoption would secure restoration. The
committee recommend a quiet andl digni
fled course of endurance, rather than
purchase restoration at a sacrifice of the
principle of self respect.

DIsTIBUTION.-We would call attention
to the opmnion of one of the leading papers
of Canada on this subject:
Most of our readersi haive no doubt read
some of the numerous advertisements of
Gift Enterprises, Gift Concerts, &ec, which
appear from time to time in the public
prints, offering most tempting bargains to
those who will patronize them. In most cases
these are genuine humbugs. But there are
a few respectable firms who do bu.iness in
this manner, and they do it as a means of
increasing their wholesale business, and not
to make money. From such firms, it is true,]
handsome and valuable articles are procured I
for a very small sum, and whiat is more im,
portant, no one is ever cheated. Every per- .1
son gets good value for his dpllar; because
as we have stated, it is intended to act as an~
advertisement to increase their ordinary
business. We have seen numbers of prizes
ent-out in this way by Sherman, Watson a
Company, 'of Na.ssau Street, N. Y., and
there is no doubt that somle of the articles
re worth eight or ten times the money paid
for them, while we have not seen or beard
f a single ar~ticle which was not worth the
ollar which It cost. But this is only one of 1
the exceptions of this rule, for as a general
hing the parties engaged in this business
re nothing but clever swindlers.

EMILIX Bour, wife of Th. Gouin, was born
in Ile d'aix, France, on the lot4 day of Oc
tober, 1820. She died at Newberrv 0. H.,
South Carolina, on the 24th day of January,
1867, after a painful illness of not quite one
Seldom have the sympathies of this en
tire community been stirred to greater
depths, than when the death of this most
estimable person became generally known.
Eyes unused to weeping were suffused with
tears. Hearts unaccustomed to such emo
tions were moved with sentiments of pro
found .grief. The large congregation at
t.nding the funeral services, could not fail
to be impressed with the solemnity of the
occasion, and the spectacle of touching sad
ness there presented. In the tenderest of
earthly relations,-that of husband and
wife, this favored couple had been permit
ted to enjoy together thirty one years of
domestic peace and felicity. They were all
the world to each other, and their home
was the abode of blissful contentment and
unclouded happiness. Their devotion could
not but attract the admiring notice of even
the most casual observer. And now there
was the stricken husband, on this, the an
niversary of the day which gave him birth,
about to commit to the grave, the wife of
his bosom, the partner for this long srace
of time, of all his joys, the uncomplaining
sharer of all his misfortunes and the comfort
er of all his sorrows. Far away from the
place of their nativity, strangers in a strange
land. without kindred, though not aithout
friends, one has been taken, and the other
left to mourn over his lemg,
The deceased was knowr, to the writer of
this sketch, as a regular attendant upon the
Sabbath services of the sanctuary, of which
he is the minister. She enjoyed the privi
lege of worshipping at Aveleigh Church;
to her it was a real pleasure, of which she
felt and acknowledged the deprivation,
whenever hindered by sickness or inclement
weather. In this respect she will be sadly
missed, in a way r",ly known to a pastor
whc receives encouragement of heart from
:.e punctuality and serious and devout at
tention of his hearer.
Though she led a quiet and unobtrusive
life, her loss will be keenly felt.ly many in
this community, and particularly by the
needy, the s.ck and the suffering. She did
innumerable acts of charity, and always in
such a delicate, refined and unostentatious
manner, that often they wer.: known solely
to the recipients themselves.
One instance came under the personal
observation of the writer, where a destitute
family had been for months, literally sup
ported by her generosity, and this without
their being able iorsone time, with all their
exertions, to ascertain the source from
whence the supplies came. She could not
witness distress without relieving it, as far
as lay in her t"ower, yea and beyond her
power she was willing. For indeed, it may
be told of her "how that in a great trial of
affliction, the abundance of her joy and her
deep poverty abounded unto the tiches of
her liberality." A very few days after the
memorable confl.igration in this town last
year, and which had strippe I her husband
and herself of .iearly their earthly all, hap.
pening to visit this same destitute and almost
starving family,just mentioned, A servant
arrived bringing from this samte generous
hand now cold in death, a portion of what
little was still left by the merciless fire;
showing a willin.'ness to share her last
morsel with the poor and needy: to divide
her last crumb with those more hungry
But upon the bereaved, heart-broken hus
band, this blow falls with stunning force.
It ia an agonizing stroke! No wife's soft
hand to soothe his troubled brow ; no wife's
sweet voice to cheer his desolate home ; no
wife's ear to listen to his distresses; no
wife's heart to return the love which his
heart gives. It is hard, hafd to bear!
When the loss is of another kind, it may
admit of repair. Property may be injured,
some cherished plan may be frustrated
hut industry may be agatr successful and
hope :nay fix its eye on other objects. But
when those whom we love best die, there is
no comfort of this sort with which w e cain
he comforted. We cannot reason ourseives
into t rue submtission. We .;u.y philo.sopi.iz
ab,out it, but no comfort will come from
this quarter. The world and its joys and
busy scenes may he sought after, but they
cannot make us forget our sorrow of heart.
But wheni rel-gion conmes to our aid, then it
brings sweet resignation ; God is with the
believer in trouble, and there is a peace
profound which passeth all understanding.
Not that it removes all feeling and forbids
us to weep: for on the contrary the heart
when purified by grace, is capable of the
greatest feeling ; for grace which removes
the heart of stone and substitutes that of
flesh, will refine rather than extinguish
human sensibilities. But what words do
we hear fronm lips, whence nothing but
lamentation might have been expected to
issue ? "I was dumb, I opened not my
mouth ; because thou didst it." "The Lord
gave and the Lord hath taken away, blessed
be the name of the Lord." Religion works
this miracle. This can cause the sorrowing
to be glad in the midst of their sorrow.
Bereaved husband ! the desire of his eyes
is taken away from him with a stroke. Yet
in all this, he sinneth not, nor chargeth
God foolishly. hi * * * * *
