Tile First Snow Fall.
BX JAMES B XT S SX I. Ii LOWELL.
Th e snow had begun in the gloaming
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.
Every pine, and fur, and hemlock,
Wore ermine too^ear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on tho elm tree
Was fringed inch deep with pearl.
From sheds now roofed with Carrara,
Came Chanticleer's muffled crow,
Tho. stiff rails were softened tb swan's down,
And still fluttered down the' snow.
I stood and watched by the window '
The noiseless work of the sky,
And the sudden flurries of snow-birds,
Like brown leaves whirling by.
I thought of a mount in sweet Auburn,
Where a little head-stone stood
How the flakes were folding it gently.
As did robins the babes in the wood.
Up spoke our own little Mabel,
Saying, "Father, who makes it snow?"
And I told her of the good AU-father
"Who cares for us all below.
Again I looked at the snow fall.
And thought of the leaden sky
That arched o'er our first great sorrow
"When the mount was heaped so high.
I remembered the gradual patience,
That fell from that cloud-like snow,
Flake by flake, healing and hiding
The scar of that deep-stabbed woe.
And again to the child I whispered,
" The sr.ow that hush'ith ?H?
Darling, the Merciful Father
Alone can make it fall. "
Then, with eyes that saw not, I kissed her,
And she, kissing back, could not know
That my kiss was given to her sister
Folded close under deepening snow.
THE BASE OF TBE STATES OP SOUTH
The following is the report of the Joint Commit?
tee appointed to examine and report on the affairs
of the Bank of the State :
That they met in Charleston on the 18th of July
last, ab the Parent Bank, and entered on the dis?
charge of their duties, and were much gratified
with the courtesy, frankness, and prompt aid of
the President and other officers of the Bank shown
them, in .conducting their examination, into its
affairs, which continued for some nine or ten days
before its" completion. The examination was as
xninute and thorough as practicable, under the
circumstances. The President exhibited the fol?
lowing general statement of the Bank and its
and books, and verified to the satisfaction of the
Committee, reserving, however, for further ex?
amination,' so much as : related to the branches at
Columbia,?Camden and Abbeville, to be made at
an adjourned meeting in Columbia, on Friday, be?
fore the 4th Monday in November following.

The Presidents of the respective branches were
notified by the Committee to appear before them
ss the tune and place before designated, with the
assets of their respective branches. In obedience
to this notice, Presidents Fisher and Shannon at?
tended in person, and the President of the branch
at Abbeville was represented by Mr. Waring, the
Cashier of the mother bank. These gentlemen are
entitled to the high regard and thanks of the Com?
mittee, for their courtesy and kind assistance
shown the Committee in the conducting of the ex?
amination of th?se branch?s. The Committee were
pleased to ascertain from their examination that
the general Statement furnished them at the Parent
Bank, in Charleston, in relation to the branches,
was fully and satisfactorily shown to be correct ;
although Mr. Shannon had had the misfortune to
lose the evidences of the debts due his branch, by
their having fallen into the hands of General Sher?
man's army. But he had saved the books of the
Bank, which enabled t?nt to present both general
and*detailed statements of its affairs. This exam
ination consumed several days, and was as fall and
complete as tte nature of the circumstances would
The Bank has, among its assets in the shape of
Railroad Bonds, Railroad and other Stocks, and in
advances on State Stocks with interest thereon,
at least ($1,241,050) one million two hundred and
forty-one thousand and fifty dollars. This sum
could not now be realized from these_ assets; but as
the country recovers from the disasters which
have been consequent upon the war, they will un?
questionably improve inx value and become avail?
able for the settlement of liabilities, or furnishing
the means for the future operation of the Bank.
There are other items of bills and notes discount?
ed, bonds, exchange and real estate, to wit : Of
bills and notes discounted, $1,970,972.
Bonds, $104,061; Beal Estate, 111,444; Exchange,
$120,076; Cash, $100,000; besides, arrears of inter?
est on notes, bonds, &c, making another aggre?
gate of $2.406.553-the two together constituting
the sum o?' ($?,647,608) three million six hundred
and forty-seven thousand six hundred and three
dollars. This s.mis exclusive of Confederate se?
curities. Of i he bills and notes discounted, a por?
tion originated during the war, and of course will
be claimed to be sealed under the ordinance of the
Convention. Of others, a considerable portion are
unquestionably good. The vicissitudes of the war
and the loss of property, which has been the re?
sult of the late contest, have necessarily thrown
doubt or uncertainty upon outstanding obligations
generally, and this doubt and uncertainty must
affect a considerable portion of the paper due the
Bank. And no certain opinion can be formed as
to the amount that may bo collected. The ofticcrs
of the Bank are confident that a large portion of
them will be available for the retiring of the Bank
circulation. This observation applies to the items
of Bonds and Exchange.
But for the result of tho war, the means of the
Bank would have been abundant.
And even with what is left, and the prospect of a
considerable deposit account, the Bank might be
continued! Tinder a new corporate name, to wit : The
Bank of the State of South Carolina, for the pur?
pose of deposit and discount, but not as a bank of
issue. For the late Tax Act of the United States
provides as follows :
SEO. 6. And be it further enacted, that every
National baaking association, State Bank, or State
banking association, shall pay a tax of ten per
centum on the amount of notes of any State Bank
or State banking association paid ont by them
after the first day of July, eighteen hundred and
This act isa virtual prohibition of all banks of
issue, as the ta- would more than consume all the
profits that could be made by any legitimate bank?
ing. And the Legislature, at its last annual sit?
ting, acted wisely in discontinuing the Bank as
one of issue. Otherwise this enormous tax would
have been incurred.
If the General Assembly should desire to con?
vert this institution into a" bank of deposit and
discount with another name, the necessary appro?
priate legislation to accomplish that object should
be adopted at tho present session. Such a bank
could discount on such assets as remain and the
deposits, and would do a business large enough,
it is supposed, to meet the interest on the liabili?
ties of the State. 1 f this should not be done, then
the present assets will have to go into the Treasu?
ry as collected, and romain dead capital until ap?
Their collection, too, it is thought, would he
more successfully made by the Bank itself than to
transfer them to other hands less acquainted with
the debtors, with many of whom advantageous
compromises might be made, and additional secu?
rities, in some instances, obtained. It is believed
also that such an institution would.be a necessary
fiscal agent of the State Treasury. But these
views are merely suggested for the mature consid?
eration of the Legislature, as the Committee are
not disposed to commit themselves as to any par?
ticular line of policy in reference to the Bank, and
submit" the whole subject to tho wisdom of the
General Assembly. There is one other consider?
ation, however, 'that the Committee feel it their
duty to'present, and that is, it is important that
Jroper legal measures should be taken at an early
ay to perpetuate the testimony necessary to es?
tablish the notes, bills, and bonds due at the Cam?
den branch, which have been lost or destroyed,
and likewise to revive any judgments or decrees
in favor of the Bank, that may have met a similar
fate. ' xj .. \ ;
The Committee cannot, in justice to themselves,
closer-this report without bearing testimony to the
experienced financial skill, ability, and high char?
acter of C. M. Furman,' Esq., President "of the
Parent1 Bank, and to the ; ability; fidelity, and pri

- Article IL is the review of a very interesting
French work, in 3 volumes: "Causeries d'un Cu?
rieux,'" par F. FEUILLET DB COUCHES; which, we
are told, rivals the "Curiosities of Literature" in
erudition, and far surpasses it in accuracy, pene?
tration and suggestiveness. Even the preface ia
full of the most interesting literary tit-bits. Among
many others, we have here a very ? characteristic
anecdote of two great French cotemporary authors.
M. DE LAMARTINE meeting M. ALEXANDER DUMAS
soon after the publication of the History of ihe
Girondins, inquired anxiously of the latter if he
had read it. "Oh, yes I It is superb. Von have
elevated History to the dignity of Romance."
M. FEUILLET is a collector-not of Internal ^Re?
venue, but of "everything that is valuable pr curious
in art, science, or literature. He appears a kind o?
MAGXIABECCHI in the comprehensiveness of his
knowledge of books and authors; but, unlike the
great Florentine librarian, our author" is deter?
mined to leave a monument behind him to show
what he did know. We have never seen the work
in question, and it is perhaps too much to expect,
in the present posture of affaira, that a large work
like this should be translated or reprinted in this
country. As it is then doubtful whether our read?
ers will ever see the.book, we shall proceed to ex?
tract such scraps and anecdotes as we deem of gen:
eral interest. , ;_
The oldest portrait extant in England of recog?
nized authenticity is that of RICHARD UL in
Windsor Castle. We learn from our author,- who
is very learned in such matters, that no trust?
worthy images of the heroes, statesmen, poets?
orators, and philosophers of classical antiquity
have descended to us; that the busts of ALEXAN?
DER C?ES AB, POMJTEY, HANNIBAL, PERICLES, HOKES,
VIBGUI, HORACE, DEMOSTHENES, CICERO, PLATO,
SOCRATES and ARISTOTLE, with a host of others
which we have been wont to admire or venerate,
are apocryphal. .
M. FEUILLET is very fond of dilating on the vice
of book-keeping, so prevalent among many collect?
ors. He is down on all lending, and commends
the example of the Faculty of Paris, who held out
against Louis XXL, all absolute as he was, and re?
fused to lend him an Arabian manuscript without
a deposit of a hundred gold pieces, and would not
abate a livre on seeing the royal treasurer forced
to sell a part of his own plato to make up half oj
The passion for collecting autographs is not oi
modem birth. We read of MDCIANTDB at Rome, a
friend of the older PLINY, who had the greatest
collection of autographs in his day. That he waa
not over nice on questions of authenticity may be
inferred from the fact of his greatest treasure
being the reputed letter of SARRKDON; tb PRIAM;
which he had discovered in a temple while he wai
Governor of Ly cia.
The Brat known use of the word autograph ie in
Suetonius, Lilaree Angust? Autographs. , It is,
Iperhaps, not generally known that the Romans
had their short-hand writers, a chosen number ol
whom were employed by CICERO to toko down a
speech of CATO. We have all heard of IUas in nuce.
CICEBO says that he had seen a copy of the Iliad,
written on a piece of parchment, contained in a
nut-shell. This species of trifling waa in great
vogue during the Middle Ages.
Although printing was not known to the Romans,
the arts of book making and bookselling were well
understood, and reached a high degree of perfec?
tion in the Augustan age. '?he House of ATTXCUS
is described as an immense est?mishment, in
which skilful workmen, mostly slaves, were busy
in copying, pressing and binding for the book
market. Women were much employed as copyists,
scribes and secretaries.
There is nothing now in the world. SENECA
mentions a man of great wealth, living in his day,
one CANISIUS SAEEINTJS, who wished to shine as a
diner-out, in spite of his natural dullness. He
procured a dozen slaves, who wore made to learn
by heart select passages from the popular poets, j
and instructed how to prompt him when he broke
down or had nothing to say. These slaves cost
bim about $4000 a year.
How strange that from such-a high state of civ?
ilization so few authentic manuscripts and docu?
ments should have como down to our day. Mr.
DTBBABI.1 explains this: "The Homans burned the
books of the Jews, of the Christians, and cf the
philosophers; the Jews burned the books of the
Christians and the Pagans; the Christians burned
the books of the Pagans and the Jews."
Miss QUIRK'S parlor and Miss Q.'s album have
both shocked and amused thousands of incredu?
lous readers; but it appears truth is stranger than
fiction, in this aB in so many other cases. "
The principal collector of ropes is declared to bo
an Englishman, and a member of the Humane So?
ciety, who died about seventeen years ago. To
each rope was attached a memoir of the subject or
sufferer; and in most instances tho last. dying
speech and confession was annexed, proving, ii is
added, the perfection to which, by dint of practice,
the eloquence of the drop has arrived inihe Uni?
ted Kingbom. "Can it be, as is asserted on the
authority of an English writer, whose name I for?
get, that in Englsnd' the masters were wont to
practice their pupils in this kind of composition,
so that every good Englishman, on entering into
the world, had his peroration ready en eas of the
accident of the gallows?" Is there anything that
a Frenchman, lettered or unlettered, will not be?
lieve of an Englishman-not at all out of ill-nature
or ill-will, but out of sheer ignorance ? In the
month of January, 1866, a French journal describ?
ed the English aristocracy as habitually risking
their centaine de guiness on the result of a cock?
fight ; and M. Feuillet de Conches reproduces,
without questioning, the statement of Diderot that,
in a secluded quarter of St. James' Park, there
was a pond in which the female sex had exclusive
privilege of drowning themselves. So well-inform?
ed a writer might surely have learned that the
English occupy only the third or fourth rank in
the statistics of suicide, and that the Prussians
There have been collections of walking sticks,
of hats, shoes, buttons, but in all this they are
fully equalled by the modern philatelists, or gath?
erers of postage stamps. These collections may
be made to subserve a useful purpose, and in the
hands of an intelligent teacher, illustrate different
historical epochs, with the manners, customs, and
leading events of the several eras, as, for instance,
the following :
A collection of buttons was exhibited at the Uni?
versity of Ghent, in 1845, for the benefit of the
poor, and proved a valuable contribution to the
history of manners and art. They were not only
of aH shapes and sizes, in polished steel, in silver
and gold, and set with the costliest jewels; but an
entire series were painted in miniature by the first
artists of the period-the first years, of Louis
XvX There were portraits of celebrated beauties,
with copies of ancient statues and scenes taken
from ancient mythology. Klingstet made double
buttons with a spring, containing two surfaces,
and each a chef-ol tempore in its way. Honore Fra?
gonard, a decorator of note, painted for a gay mar
,. quis a ?et of buttons ala Faiieott.jfhich bave
o^?sma1?K^ut?cnes * ^wrthou?? TT is slily added, be?
coming more famous for his punctuality. Equal
extravagance was indulged about the same time in
waistcoasts, which, although the material was
more perishable, afforded wider scope for luxury
and design. An exquisite of the first water was
then ah improving study for both the seamstress
or embroiderer and the scene-painter. One might
be Been with the amours of Mars and Venus on his
stomach, and another with a cavalry review. "We
are assured," says a writer in the Memoires Se
? crete, "that an enthusiast has ordered a dozen
waistcoats representing scenes from the popular
plays, so that his wardrobe may become a theatri
! cal repertory and some day serve .for tapestry."
1 After the assembly of the Notables, there were
: gHets aux Notables, copied from the print describ
! ed by Bachaumont: "The king is in the middle, on
his throne; in the left hand he holds a scroll on
which are these words, Vage d'or; but by a very
? offensive oversight it is so placed that he seems to
. be rummaging his pockets with Ins right hand."
A little later, the guillotine grew, into fashion for
ornaments, especially for brooches and pins.
We must now close our list of extracts. The
: book is very tempting, but space forbids.

ATLANTIC AND PACHTO BATLBOAD.-This road
, which, although starting at St. Louis, is really the
Southern Pacific, has recently been permanently or
. ganiz?d, with General FBEMONT as President. The
St. Louis Democrat thus sketches the route and its
i. advantages: -
As sketched by the President, the road is laid
in Southwestern Missouri and the Valley of the
Canadian, and generally, along the thirty-fifth par?
allel to the head ot the navigation on the Colorado,
and thence to the Pacific coast. ; It is the shortest
route by five hundred miles of any surveyed- foi
that purpose, and presents the fewest difficulties.
No mountains are in the way. and for a.greater
portion.of the 'distance it follows the valleys of
streams, and thus reaps the advantages of water
levels, as uniform in their surface, as could be de?
. -Tho climate throughout is good. Snows are al?
most unknown; water and timber, abound plenti?
fully; the soil is rich, and minerals of the - best de?
scriptions are everywhere found... The Southwest
branch of the Pacific Road will propably be incor
porated with this continental work, and if so,
it starts from s city of more : than-two hundred
thousand inhabitants as its eastern terminus,
Cses through a rich and well settled portion of
souri, penetrates the Indian Territory, remark?
able for the prolific nature of its eoiL and reaches
the Bio Grande through the heart of New Mexico,
a territory containing more than a hundred thou?
sand people, and whose trade amounts to twenty
millions of dollars per annum; thence it traverses
Arizona, and strikes the waters of the Pacific at
the Gulf of California.
TBS RESOUBCES OF CALIFORNIA.-The San Fran?
cisco Times has an exalted opinion of the resources
of that State. The editor Bays :
Since January 1st of the present year, we have
; exported 23.SOO tons flour, 66,600 tons of wheat,
, 11,760 tons barley, and 6,740 tons of oats, a total
of 109,000 tons of grain, of the aggregate value of
! $4,500,000; and it is estimated by those who are
; thoroughly informed on the subject, that there is
a surplus of 200,000 tons still remaining, valued, at
, pr?sent prices, at upwards of $9,000,000-413,500.000
' worth of surplus grain raised in a single season,
by a State not claiming to bo consideredagricultu
! ral 1 We exported during the first nine ?months of
the present year, $44,491,584 worth of other pro?
ducts, among which are included 3,326,831 pounds
' of wool, valued at $375,000, besides manufacturing
; nearly double that quantity in their local mills;
, $250,000 worth of wines and spirits; 24,483 flasks
quicksilver, valued at $1,000,000. besides retaining
' as much more for home consumption; 20,000 tons
copper' ores, valued at $1,000,000, and $34,869,705 in
r gold-and silver-a total export during nine months
of $46,841,584, all produced by no more than
200,000 workers: for out of a population of 400,000,
one-fourth of whom are children, it is not an over?
estimate' to calculate that there are 100,000 females
and non-producing adult.malea.

turns of which will exhibit ah equal value of ex?
port; for an equal number of ita population.
