Letter from the Country.
OHXSTHB, S. 0., June 6,1866.
Editor? Daily Newt:
t Being Interested in all that pertain s to the prosperity
of our Southern cities, and erpeolally charleston (my
r former home), I have with pleasure observed that pub
lic? attention has been oalled to the freights now charged
by tho South Carolina Railroad Company. I would also
like to direct the public notice to the schedule now
-being run by that road.
Tho Sonth Carolina Railroad now roaches Columbia
st 5.20 P. M., and the Charlotte road leaves there st 4.16
P. M. (to make the connection going north st Charlotte).
By this means (the difference of only one hour), pas
senger, aro detained in Columbia twenty-four hours,
and the ssme thing is the case going south. Onr mails
now take twenty-four hours longer than formerly to reach
na, and your valuablo paper does not roach us now until
the third day after publication. It taken now but s few
hours longer to go from bore to New York than it does
to go from here to Charleston. These facie, together
with the exorbitant frrigbts, must inevltsbly have the
effect of compelling all mercantile men in this seotlon
to go North for their goods, as a matter of Self-interest.
Hoping that this stato of affairs may be soon changed,
[i I am Yours respootfnlly,
The.?o philanthropists who declare the South has not
been punished for its rebellion against the Goneral Gov
ernment, and deny mercy to Its Inhabitants, are not at
all appeased with the death of forty thou sand men,
most of whom v. re heads of families, in s single State;
with sixty thou'ina 1 widows and orphans and sixty four
thousand .Urviug people! This seem, s retribution that
should satisfy the sternest inquisitor-one sufficient to
work all the repentance physical and mental sgeny cm
produce and to give all the security against repeated
transgreeiions that misery can rsnaer.-Borton Port.
Crops In mississippi.
Tho following extract from a priva to letter toa gen
tleman of this city, from Mississippi, giving Informa
tion in regard to the crop prospects ofthat State, will bo
read with interest:
GnAWFonnviiAE, LOWNDES Co., Miss., May 27, I860.
* # * ? * *
Tho crop prospects are not so good now as they wore
at tho dato of my last. Wo have had heavy rains through
all this month. For thn first eleven days it ralnod
heavily every day or night, which caused tho loss of two
we ek's work on the crop, for I must toll you that ono
day's hsrd rain reduces this prairie land to the consis
tency of wheat flour dough mixed with a little tar, and
It takes a day or two of dry weather to makeitplowablo.
While this prolonged rain rendered it lmposBlblo to
work in the Holds, it also gave tho weedB and grass an
Impetus, which It will be vory hard to stop. Add to
this tho" laziness of the freedmen, and yon can readily
understa nd the ckange In the prospect. Instead of re
doubling their exertions as they seo the grass gaining
on t hem, they appear to give up, and it 1B worse than
nsoless to try to make them understand that their
wages depends upon the crop ; the fear of lo Bin g monoy
is no sti mnlus to them; they have enough to eat to-day,
and that's all they care about I havo Just returned
from a ride of somo twenty miles, and found the same
condition of thugs all the way. My next door neighbor,
who has visited recently portions of Alabama, reports
the same, and perhaps a little worse. We havo scarcely
had two dava conscutivoly of dry weather since the 1st
instant ; it is raining now, and if it were not for a
ghmpso of the rainbow now and then, reminding one of
the promise, we might almost fear another forty days'
and nights' affair.
I see that a correspondent of the New York Herald
estimates the present crop at 4,000,000 bales. The man
la either a knave or a fool-most probably the former.
The statement waa made purely fer effect, and without
regard to truth or a knowledge of the subject. With
the whole Mississippi VaUey inundated, levees broken,
fences destroyed, Ac, the Tomblgbee and other rivers
swollen to bursting, thousands of negroes dead or car
ried to Cuba and sold, or made "aogers" of, and the re
mainder more lazy and inefficient than ever-the man
who, under this state of things, can honestly say ho ex
pects to see 4,000,000 bales this year, is much more
sanguine than any I've seen.
THE THERMOMETKR.-We copy the following weather
item from tho New Orleans Time*, of the 1st, and con
fess ourselves very muoh puzzlod at tho remarkably low
temperature registered here. We have been to New Or
leans in January, and felt 90. Perhaps their fahrenheit
is different from our* : ?
"Monday last, we leam from the record in the City
Telegraph Offloe, was tho hottest day of the season, the
mercury Indicating 87 degrees fahrenheit at noon, and
continuing at this point for some time afterwards. At
six o'clock it fell rapidly seventeen degrees, and stood
at 70, when the storm burst upon this section. At
meridian ot Tuesday, the thermometer indicated 63 de
grees, and at the same hour on Wednesday 64 degrees;
and what is singular, it was several degrees warmer
both previous and subsequent to the noon hour upon
each of these days. Xeaterday, at 6 o'clock A M., the
mercury was up to the 69 degree mark, and continued
rising until 10 o'clock, when it touohed the 73 figure;
after whloh it again began falling slowly. A oold rain
tot In, and a more duU, dreary, suicidal day mortals are
seldom callad upon to endure. But "Ulsan lil wind
that blows nobody good," and the recent state of the
atmosphere will probably prove remunerative to the
venders of patent medicines for the cure of coughs,
colds an d other bodily Ula of a simitar character. ' '
A NICE PTOTUBE.-The Savannah News and Herald
has recently embellished ita columns with an illustra
tion which cannot rut be repugnant to Southern ladles.
A New York merchant advertising tobaccos has a wood
out representing a "Carolina belle," fashionably attired
-dipping snuff. This la a very questionable way of
seeking Southern trade, and la an Imputation at ono*
slanderous and Insulting.
The impression conveyed is, that the nauseous habit
of snuff dipping prevails among our ladies. Such is not
the case, and hence the wood-out is a standing calumny.
We agree with you, and think the Idea contempUble
In the extreme. We can't see how a respectable paper
would admit such a blackguard effort at sensation in Its
columns. It would be more appropriate In a Vermont
paper than a respectado Georgia Journal -[EDS.
The Columbus Sun finds the following touching the
burning of Columbia, S. C, In the Indianapolis (In
"On the return of Sherman's army, two regiments of
it camped a day and night on the commons near our
residence. The soldiers engaged In free conversation,
and, as was natural, made their grand march under
Sherman through the South, and particularly the part
of it through South Carolina, the theme of aairation.
They stated that our soldiers burned Columbia; that
they desolated, as far as could be done, where they
marched; and, whether Columbia was burned by Sher
man's order or not, they could not further say than that
it was burned by our soldiers, under the orders of their
immediate commanders, but whether they had orders
From Sherman or not, was only with them a matter of

On Saturday last the excitement was intense; the sons
of Erin cheered till tboy were hoarso, and then thoy
cheered till they wero better again ; tho Irish flag floated
bravely from the headquarters of Colonel Roberts,
and Colonel Roberts himself was Jubilant in tho ex

invading army bad been victorious, that the British
lion had been close shaven ia his den by Fenian ran

word, and the so a of Erin did brag with a vengeance;
but the bragging waa ill-timed, for tho news soon

amounted to nothing, inasmuch as no Important results
accrued therefrom. The Fenians had fought bravely

had begun right had ended wrong, and the wholo affair
was s faUure. The news that Col. O'Nell and seven

ere long be no movement at all. And ao the Fonlan af

there are five new oasea on board the hospital ship Fal

There were fewer case, of drunkennes. yesterday in
and around the city than on any Sunday within the
memory of the oldeat inhabitant's great grandfather.
The Excise Law kept people in the oity from drinking,
and the rainy weather kept them from going elsewhere
to get drunk-ergo s great many people were sober.
Yesterday afternoon the first concert of the season
was given at the? Central Park. Magnificent equipages
rolled along the broad and beautiful drives and avenue*,
whilst tho walks were crowded with pedestrians in
search of s few hours recreation and s little more air
than is vouchsafed them in the crowded, sultry oity
below. The Central Park is already, in many respocts,
equal, and in some superior, to the oolebrated Bot* de
Boulougne of Paris, and is destined ere long to surpa.. it
in all respects.
A numoer of Mormons who were in this oity on la? t
Friday had s nice little dinner at the Metropolitan Hotel,

heroism of the Confederate armies, and bore with so
muoh fortitudo the desolations inflicted on them by a
ruthless enemy, sre now, with praiseworthy energy, re
pairing their waste-places and effacing tho traces of the
destroyer. The Shenandoah Herald of last Thursday,
after stating "that nearly every mill and barn in the
Valley, between Harrlsonburg and Winchester, was
"With that indomitable energy and perseverance,
characteristic of the bardy yeomanry of the Valley, they
did not fold their arms and spond their time in fretting
and worrying themselves about the matter, but went to
work with o h nar ty will to repair tho damages; and not

upon the sites of those burned. In this neighborhood,
we are happy to say, the moat of the barns have been

completed intimo for the growing crops."
CONFEDERATES IM MEXICO.-The Mexican Govern

they purchased with their own means from private pro

A reporter who p>ered into Gen Scott's coffin says:
"Directly the linen at the head of the bier is removed,
and a round, sunken face of shaven white is revealed.
This was once the 'radiant Haunted Palace'-the face
of the General. It is like, and yet very saddening and
changed. Death has given it the peaked lcok of corpses,
and this is farther shaipened by the loss of the falso
teeth, which makes the chin draw close to the nose, and
greatly shortens tho face. His eyes have been closed,
but one of them is a litUe unsealed, so that there is a
trifle of crevice of the white eyeball shining through.
The well-cut nose and mouth have little suffered; the
hair la white and thin."
A correspondent of a Sacramento paper teUs the fol
io winn pathotlo story: "There is a young man sen
tenced to Jail for a year, who still retains the treasures
of a pretty wife and child. They come to see him every
day, and the Warden turns the great creaking look, and
the three sit on a bench and for a while forget their mis
fortune*. Yesterday, being Sunday, they brought him
his dinner, aU the delicate little things that a poor man
could think of and carry, and the repast lasted a great
while. The chUd Is extremely beautiful, and while it
was playing about the gratod doors, I could see the fur
tive tears drive one anotht r quickly down the young
mother's rosy cheek, though she waa pretending to be
cheerful all the time."

Hostetter's Stomaoh Bitters.
Man wants s Tomo-no uncommon wsnt
And every year and month brings forth s new one.
Which, after cramming the gazettes with cant
The age discovers to be not the true one.
Of euch ss these let their conoootors vaunt,
I'll sing the BITTERS that have credit due won
The world's great Tonto, which no skill can better
I mean tho mstobles. BITTERS of H08TETTER.
Doctors were Living long before old Galen,
And since, exceeding learned, grave and sage;
But the stomachics they were bound to fail in;
Success esme not until this later age,
aNow is the era sick folks are made hale in,
And dread dyspepsia driven from the stage,
Agues, remittents, headaches-rest hesd*splltters
Vanish Like smoke before HOSTETTER'S BITTERS.
Herbs, barks and roots compose the raro Infusion ;
No mlnersl poison mara their Juices pure.
And Bye's mild essenoe holds them In solution.
The tsste is pleasant the effect Is sure.
Ne'er have the Bitters yet proved s delusion;
4 Try them In time, and health and strength secure.
The dragon-slayer figures on the label,
And they, Uko hito, to MT? tho week sre able.
