The New Orleans Picayune, of
Tuesday last, closes a review of the
crop prospect in Louisiana thus: "It
seems to be a perfectly fair presump
tion that the hopes which have been
built on the crop of 1875 in Louisiana
will, with very few exceptions, be
fully realized. We do not believe in
encouraging exaggerated ideas and fos
tering expectations that can never be
gratified; but it is equilly unwise and
certainly much more dishonest to take
the opposite extreme. We think we
are doing neither when we say that
the splendid -promises of 'the spring

How THE BANK oF CALIFORNIA
WAS SM A sH E D.-George Alfred
Townsend contributes another chapter
to the history of mining speculations
in California, describing the Bank of
Nevada, which is to rise on the ruins
of the Bank of California, and is to
be the property of Flood and O'Brien
and Fair and Mackay. They are all
Irish, and Flood and O'Brien were, .a
few years ago, a sort of Delmonico
to the operators on California street,
keeping the liquor and lunch, place
there. They caught the air and secrets
of the patrons of the house, and tried
mining speculative stocks a little. As
they increased they got an engineer to
look about the Comstock lode for them
and pick up a mine supposed to be
worn out called the "Hale and Nor
cross." This they soon developed in
to a new source of actual wealth.
They paid for it seventy cents per
share when the whole number of shares
afloat was only five thousand. As
they brought out the bullion they
watered the stock and it went up hun
dreds per cent. Then they built
crushing mills and began to feel under
their shafts to the west mine. There
they discovered a real bonanza, for in
these mining ventures there is a reality
as well as a romance, and while the
proprietors of the mine were asleep or
ignorant, these miners picked up their
stock and began to take $1,600,000 a
month of bullion out of this new
acquisition. The stock, of course, was
watered and went skyward. Only
four men ownea all this wealth. Thus,
mining bullion at the rate of $20,
000,000 per annum, these parvenues
became a power beside or against the
Bank of California. But Ralston and
Sharon owned half the crushing nmills
and the railroad at Virginia City.
The Flcod and O'Brien crowd began
to build other mills and to compete
for the greatest mines and the bank's
monopolies as well. A struggle en
sued, which resulted in the choosing
of a compromise directory. They had
undoubted genuine bullion wealth.
They proposed to Ralston's party t:>
step down and out and let them be
come the Bank of California. Of
course Ralston refused ; whereupon
Flood and O'Brien and the rest imn
mediately organized the Bank of Ne
vada, with five millions of paid-up
capital in sold.

Charleston--Annual Trade RV
An interesting trade review fur
nished us from the Commission house
of J. H. Parker & Co., of that city,
shows in a compact yet comprehensive
manner the business of our seaport
city in the past as well as her prospe ets
in the future. The exhibit is indeed
cheering, in that while the commercial
world has been so rudely shaken, and
the largest houses have failed in other
cities, this old city and her indomitable
merchants have weathered the storm,
and to-day look with confidence to a
prosperous trade. In cotton, notwith
standing-the decrease in crop as com
pared with the previous year, the re
ceipts have been nearly equal. In
rice there -has been an increase, and
in naval stores the growth has been
steady. In lumber exports, in con
sequence of depression in Northern
industries, there has been a falling off,
but that trade it is confidently expect
ed will soon revive. In the various
exports of domestics, vegetables, etc.,
the trade has been remarkably good,
considering the times. The impor
tance attached to the deepening of
Charleston bar, thus affording greater
facilities for shipping, is justly con
sidered, and though this will occupy
time, still an influence for good is
created in increased confidence in the
determination and ability of her busi
ness men to make Charleston what
she ought to be. We are pleased to
know that the j&bbing business has
opened in the liveliest manner, the in
terior merchants finding it to their
advantage to make their purchases
there, and we have no doubt that - a
large per cent., if not all the up-coun
try trade, might be secured if the pro
per steps were taken to attract atten
tion. Charleston certainly affords ad.
vantages in point of the saving of time
and expense, and all that remains to
be done on her part is to sell on the
same terms as at the North, and for
her merchants to advertise extensive
ly in the country.
The proprietors of the Keowee
Courier, Messrs. Thompson & Keith,
have sold a one-third interest therein
to Mr. D. A. Smith, a practical printer,
a gentlemen of good character end
first rate ability. We tender the firm
our best wishes.
Ou Saturday last, after its late sus
pension, the Pho nix again made its
appearance, the proprietor, Mr. Julian
Selby, giving assurance that such ar
rangements had been made as will
insure its future issue. A circular
previously received states that R.
Means Davis, Esq., editor of the
Fairfield Herald, is in control of the
editorial department. Our best wishes
are extended to editor and proprietor.
A late interview with one of the
proprietors of the Columbia Daily
Register, afforded us the assurance
that the paper is succeeding beyond
the most sanguine expectations enter
tained at its inception, as its subscrip
tion list is increasing largely every
ay. Mr. C. P. Pelham, as its editor,
mparts to its columns a character
which must insure its success. We
wish it abundant success.

An example worthy of imitation is

propitiously, as the weather is very
fine. At the same time myriads of
rice birds are making their appearance,
which will materially lessen the crop.
No one except a sufferer can possibly
estimate the damage which they do in
their hasty but destructive visits to
our rice fields."
President D. R. Duncan, of the
Spartanburg and Asheville Railroad,
says the Spartan, has just returned
from a trip to Knoxville, Tennessee,

especially the owners of the East Ten

are alive to their interests, and willing
to lend their aid and assistance in the
completion of the Spartanburg Road.
This will prove interesting to the
friends of this important project, and
we hope at no distant day to see a
road completed which will prove of
general advantage to the State.

An Interesting Letter from a
Lady of Newberry.
MR. EDITOR:-The 3rd of August
dawned gloomy and threatening. It
truly seemed as if "coming events cast
their shadows before," for the succeed
ing weeks were rainy, indeed. We had
looked forward to the time with high
hopes, of starting our trip to the moun
tains, and remembering that the good
old folks used to say, Never put off go
ing to market (when the market was
fifty or two hundred miles away) for
lowering clouds, we prepared to make
a start. The beams of the sun being
checked by the overshadowing clouds,
we were enabled more conscientiously
to urge our steed onward, and conse
quently eight o'clock found us at Jalapa.
We stopped a few moments, and could
not but notice what a great advantage
the rewelding of it to the G. & C.R. R.
had been. Several new stores have
been erected and it assumes quite an
air of importance. From thence we
were "strangers in a strange land.",
The scene was new. We had good
roads, and passed some fine country
residences. Travelling near the railroad
most of the time, we had good oppor
tunity of seeing how far it had been
laid. We passed Clinton, which is a
beautiful little village, but it is fast fail
ing for want of railway transportation.
After passing Clinton, we looked
anxiously for Laurens village, as we
had a peculiar desire to see it. We
must say we were much disappointed.
The buildings look dark and old. The
pillars at the side of the Court House
are covered with earth and weeds,
which seem to say, there is little use for
law here, or that there are "none who
plead for truth or call for justice." The
village, too, all seems to be built on
worn out hills, and the roads to and
from it are over steep hills. A railroad
certainly is much needed, and we think
the citizens will not draw up their purse
strings until it is completed. We went
fourteen miles farther on the first eve
ning, and put up with an old friend
whom we had not seen for years. We
spent the night pleasantly and took an
early start for Greenville.
Eleven o'clock, Wednesday, found us
at the hospitable home of Mrs. Joseph
Goggans (once a citizen of Newberry,
and well known to many of our readers,
but who now lives in the city of Green
ville.) Here we felt like "casting an
chor," and did so. After resting a day
or two, we were ready for a ride over
the city, and were highly pleased with
it. It has many attractive features,
such as fine churches, well finished in
stitutions for learning, several factories
of different kinds doing good business,
and many new brick stores in progress.
We would like to give a minute descrip
tion of everything we saw, especially
the scenery on the river, the Univer
sity, the Museum, and last though not
least, the Cemetery, but it will make
our letter too long. The residences are
not crowded, and nearly every family
have a corn patch, a few rows of cab
bage, and some geraniums. So much
shrubbery around the doors, and the
lawns in front, give a very rural ap
pearance to the city. The citizens of
Greenville are certainly a social and
On the 10th of August, a crowd of
us, numbering ten, started to Cmsar's
Head. The first part of the road was
not at all striking to us, though it was
moderately good, but after we got in
sight of the Blue Ridge, every one was
shouting, "Look at the mountains!" We
traveled near the Saluda for hours,
feasting our eyes on the mighty fields
of corn that lay stretched out before us,
and occasionally we would see a little
ut so near the river banks that it looked
as if it would need fins when the river
rose. This scenery gradually gave
way to the more mountainous. We
were in the ravine between two monn
tains, and fronm behind one we eould
see a terrific cloud rising. It still ad
vanced, and we made slow progress.
We thought it the most sublime sight
we had ever seen. It was awfully dark,
and the thunder was reverberating
mong the mountains for some minutes
before the rain began to fall. We drew
ur great coats, shawls, oil coverings
and hoisted our umbrellas to protect
urselves as well as we could, and en
oyed the hard shower by vision, not by
eeling. The rain having abated, we
raveled as brisk as we could up the
ones' Gap road to reach the summit of
bhe mountain before dark, but in vain,
br when we would inquire the distance
Lt got no shorter, so we concluded to
nia the bes of it and enjoy the
scenery. We went on up the Salma
River, which rushed over the rocks as
if it had been imprisoned in the bosom
of the mountain and was making good
its escape to the ocean. We cannot de
scribe our feelings while looking at
those wonderful heaps thrown up by
nature, and especially one peak that had
a large bald rock for its brow. It is
pictured on our minds yet, and we did
bate not to see that rock again. The
mountains are covered with spruce, ivy
and ferns, which truly give them a
look of solitude. Night began to unfold
her sombre curtain, and we imagined
the rugged scenery around us was like
"fair Melrose." We hail no "pale
moonlight" by which to view it, but late
in the evening when the dark hovering
clouds were above us and the dreary
mountains and morasses around us, it
did seem to partake more of those quali
ties that thrill the heart of man than
when the sun had clothed every tree and
flower with his luminous robe. Our
feelings seemed in unison with the dis
mal evening, and perhaps that was why
it was so appreciated. As we were
travelling along,earnestly gazing for the
way, (for daylight was fast receding,)
we spied a "friendly guide. post," but
could scarcely spell the letters. We
finally concluded it was to Cesar's
Head, so on we went, and if our danger
was greater than it had been we did not
know it, for we could not see the yawn
ing chasm on one side, or the awful
bank on the other. We reached Cesar's
Head about ten o'clock at night. The
proprietor, Dr. Miles, said the hotel was
full, and we were compelled to crowd
into little rooms with few conveniences.
Nevertheless, we spent the night and
hoped for a fine morning, but to our
disappointment everything was envel
oped in a dense fog. The scarcity of
provender for stock compelled us to go
several miles down the -mountain, in
the- morning, -before -we could feed.
Before leaving C&sar's Head we visited
the springs and some few. points, but
found the improvements very inferior
to what we had expected. About two
miles from Cssar's Head we came to
"Cold Spring," took a drink, and then
the road, hoping for better things. On
the mountain a woman was met, who
said in an hour's time we would find
plenty of corn, so we traveled on as
patiently as we could, watching for "the
mountain home." In due time we came
to a little cot, which we hailed with
delight. It was there we met the
''Barefoot boy with cheek of tan,
Hleaven bless the little man,"
for his hospitality to us.
"He gave us of his highland cheer"
a bucket of good mountain water and a
basket of fine apples, and directed us
to his grandfather, who in turn directed
us to some one else where we could and
did get corn and meal. Do not think
we speak lightly tf this aged sire and
little man. They did the best the cir
cumstances allowed, angels could do no
more. The little fellow's heart beat
nobly beneath his rustic jacket as he
gathered us wood, brought us chairs
and spoke kindly. We prepared our
meal in the simplest manner, and ate it
with a relish common to such occasions.
We had none left for lunch. After din
ner we started down the mountain. We
soon came to a toll gate, which made a
considerable impression on the crowd.
Then we crossed a -beautiful little river
on the mountain and passed some nice
little cottages. The country began to
look like it was inhabited by civilized
man, for the farms were well tilled, and
the soil well adapted to the growing of
corn and apples. Another dark cloud
arose before us, and we tried to take
shelter, but it was a miserable excuse.
The rain poured in torrents for an hour,
after which we traveled on to reach the
French Broad before night, as we had
been told the people were very hospi
tably inclined in the valley; but ten of
us required rather more hospitality than
any one had to spare, so were sent from
house to house, until at last we tried to
beg for merely a shelter, but in vain.
At the last named house we saw a
dwarf, said to be three feet one inch
high, who numbers three score years,
and is as intellectual and lively as many
who boast of more bone and muscle.
We went from this place to Brevard,
Transylvania Co., N. C., and found a
first class hotel, with a warm-hearted
proprietor. After our night's rest, we,
took the road down the river again, and
how shall we describe the landscape.
It seemed like a fine farm fenced in by
a chain of mountains. The blue peaks
rising majetclyaround us. The
rich fields spread out before us so level,
and the French Broad flowing silently
on, were some of the most noted fea
tures. The corn, clover and turnip
fields surpassed anything we had ever
seen, while the orchards around the
splendid residences were laden with
fruit. The stock were in fine order,
and living, so far as eating was con
cerned, seemed a light matter. We
passed some pretty little falls, climbed
some little mountains, and arrived at
Hendersonville about four o'clock. We
put up at the Central Hotel. Our host,
Mr. Brittain, spared no pains to make
us enjoy ourselves, and we feel grate
fl to him for his kindness. We called
on one of our friends, looked over the
town, and concluded if it was just con
nected by railway we would like to live
there. We spent the night pleasantly,
and in the morning started to Green
ville. We passed Flat Rock without
seeing anything remarkable, except the
toll gate, but in the vicinity are some
lovey homes. We stopped at Poinsett's
Spring, took a drink, and wondered
where we would get our dinner. We
traeled on a few miles and found the
muhi desired spot at the home of Mr.
Hodges. We dined and felt ready to
start again, thinking much of Green
ville. We drove fast and reached Mrs.
Goggans' about eleven o'clock, where
we found all ready to welcome us. We
then visited some of our friends of
earlier days and started to Newberry.
We spent two nights with a dear friend
in arens, which refreshed us much,
and reached home in safety, hoping ere
long to take another trip to the moun
