Trade of Charleston.
Wc arc gratified to learn of tlie success of direct
importations in Charleston. Tlie Mercury of yesterday
In passing through Hayno and Meeting streets i
recently, our attention has been directed to the
immense number of bales, cases and casks of mcr
cnanuisc 01 uircct. importation. Our merchants
really seem to be 111 earnest, ami, from conversations,
we find that our importers have been enabled
to lay their stocks down at prices much below what
they have been in the habit of paying Northern
houses for the same class of goods. They can now
better compete with other markets, and rrt trust
the interior trade will continuo to patronize their
own people instead of enriching Northern fanatics,
who really have no sympathy for us or our institutions.
The fall trade has opened very briskly, and merchants
who havo visited our city are much pleased
with the stock of goods exhibited to them. If the
direct importers arc to be encouraged, and they
certainly should bo, our neighbors of Georgia, Alabama
and' Tennessee should help to grease the
wheels. Wo arc sure none will regret a visit to

FOR Til* KROWfiK COURIKH.
To "Georges' Creek."
Mr. Editor: I hoo in your Inst issue, several
questions propounded by some of tlto rotors of
Georges' Crook to tlio candidates for the Legislature.
Believing in tlio right of the people to know
tlto political opinions of candidates for political
office, I willingly reply, and will do it as briefly
as I can, so that [ can be understood:
1st. I think the query in relation to "treating"
might, with equal propriety, have been proposed
to t|io candidates for district offices. Why wait
lilliil i?ul I,..!1 II.. -1 -11 ? - *
umviv mi- election lor mc i.egisiaiure,
1 when it in known there arc but few of tlie candidates
for the Legislature) that treat. Hut I am a
"plain man," mid perfectly willing to answer this
, as well as the others. I believe that it is a priviloge,.
guaranteed lo us by our ancestors, to treat
i or lot it alone. 1 think the Legislature ought .io*.
to have anything to do with it. Let the voters doI
cidc the question for themselves.
2d. As to the usury law, I tliinlc we sent as wise
men to the Legislature when that was enacted, as
| we have now: and, if they should tamper with it,
are quite as likely to make it worse than better.
I od. As to the Penitentiary. ! ain in favor of one,
or some oilier place to put the prisoners to work,
and lot them pay their own expenses, instead of the
St^ite defraying them.
4th. The election of Lincoln is to be deprecated.
I favor the election of ihikckknuiooe and Lank,
and will vote for them if elected. I regard tho
agitation of the question of separate State action,
or secession, as premature. Tho candidates for
the Legislature cannot be called on to decide that
matter. Nevertheless, in tho event that Lincoln
in cirmu resilient Ol 1110 LllllCU fSHItOS, I WOUltl
not favor (lie wii hdrawal of South Cuvolinaor any
oilier Statu fronr I lie Union, until lie tramples on
our rights. Wlieu our l ights are assailed. i am ns
ready to defend Ihctn as any. It has, however,
been the policy oi' tlio State. since 18f>2, to wait'for
| the co-ojicration of tlio other Southern States, in
redressing Southern grievances, anil I am still willing
to lie governed by the policy of the State so
! expressed. Very truly.

1 ?No ono who han visited tho cities of New
! York and Philadelphia can liavo failed to pro!
ccive tho groat dillercncc in the manner of
conducting business, and in the efforts used
to procurc trade. In the former city everything
is done in the u<! Coplandum stylo.?
Tho inorchant who at vast outlay fills his
rooms nnd stocks his shelves with tho world's
morchnndiac, no sooijpr docs so t.Jian he sets
aoout attracting tho" attention of customers
by every devieo and display known to tho
trudo. The front of the building ho occupies
\n covered up with signc, informing the
na^ers-by of who he is, and what he has for
snlo : frotn his windows stream samples of his
goods, and everything around and about his
establishment betokens that ho is determined
that no ono outside shall remain ignorant* of
what is to bo found inside. This display bo I
ing made to attract the attention of the passers-by,
ho then takos stops to invite tho notice
of thoso who do not pass by, nnd thoso who
dwell abroad, and to this end he seeks tho
advertising columns of tho press. This ho
docs, as ho docs everything else, upon an extensive
sonlo, nnd the well filled columns of
the New York papers tell with what spirit he
Very differently is it dono in our city.?
Here, tho vast majority of thoso who are engaged
in trade seem to imagine that when
they have fillecl their stores, their work is '
done, and, sub sileiitio, they await the calls
, of trade. Instead of attempting the outw.ird '
displays of the former city, tliey retire qui- :
etly to the snug recesscs of their marts, and j
' hope to make much gain by " hiding their l
; light under a bushel." 1Ti?\v absurd is this,
| and how unbusinesH like. The man who advertises,
and thus informs both buyers and
| consumers where their wants can be supplied,
j always has succeeded and always will Ruccecd. '
Liberal advertising is the life of business. I
