DISCOLRSKS.-We understand that a series of
sermons on "Tho Future Lift;'' is about to be de?
livered in the Unitarian Church, by tho Rev. Thoa.
H. Smith, commencing to-morrow morning, the
l">th inst. Tho tir?t will bc '.The introductory

THE WANDO FKBTEBLIZER.-The ferterlizing
works of Messrs. W. C. Dukes & Co., o:i Marsh's
wharf, have been in operation for some days, and
sales ol tho Wando Ferterlizer have already taken
place. These works have been described in the
NEWS at some length, and no changes have been
made in the disposition of the machinery worthy of
any note. The heavy uon crusher has been found
inadequate for tho demand, and one of a superior
size and power ia now being constructed at Messrs.
J. F. Taylor & Co.'s foundry. Mtssrs. W. C.
Dukes & Co. have in their warehouses a large sup?
ply of the Nevarsa Guano, which is considered to
be the best basis for ferterlizers ; thin is ground
np with boues, Luxe, Sx., and the compound well
mixed togother forms the Wando Ferterlizer. The
marl discoveri?s cn the Ashley river have not been
confiued to any ono section, but the deposit is
found stretching over a large extent of country,
and Messrs. W. C. D. & Co. have made arrange?
ments to procure a large supply of this deposit,
and will make their Ferterlizer equal to any offered
for salo in this city. Dr. Ravenel, an experienced
chemist, has charge of the chemical analysis, and
Mr. Ebaugh, practical machinist, of the mechani?
cal portion of the works.
THE EAOLE OUTDONE.- The great Ameri-an
eagle may be a surprisingly developed bird, that
can cool its bill at the North Pole, while it plays in
the waters of thc Gulf of Mexico. It can shriek
freedom uutil the sound is heard from the Atlantic
to tho Pacific. It eau cover a continent with its
wings, and be the emblem of "the land ot he
free and the home of tho bnwe;" but its glories
fade into insignificance when contrasted with i.he
home virtues of tho turkey, particularly at the
time when Christmas dinners are the vogue. The
eagle is, at this season, compelled to retire to its
native haun:s, where it lays like a warrior takiuj
its rest with the United States flag around it, until
the Fourth of July or some other patriotic occa?
sion causes it to be brought into public notice.
The turkey is now the honored bird, and is made
the subject of the epicure's praises and the poet's
lays. One of tho latter, who had a good dinner
and a piece of the breast in prospect, vented his
surcharged feelings in the following triumph int
"The eagle he is a very nice bird
For the battle time of the free ;
But when the sweet notes of peace are heard,
Ob the turkey's the bird for me, my boys
'the turkey's the bi: J for me."
TH? JAPANESE JCGULEBS.-On Monday the Ja?
panese troupe will appear in this oily, and will
exhibit the wonders of their skill in jugglery and
acrobatics. Their entire exhibitions are conduct?
ed in Japanese style, language and music, and
they enable a person to get a better "lea of real
life in Japan than could be gotten from a mast; of
dry reading. In visiting these moon-eyed Celes?
tials, the public can see the originals of the pretty
Min-ne, who is thus described by the poet Saxe :
"Her skin had tho color of saffron tea,
And her nose was flat as flat could be;
And never were b-_en such beautiful eyes,
Two almond _crnals in shape and size
Set in a couple of startling trashes,
And not in the least disfigured by lashes."
Their style of hair-dressing ''i something of a
crosa between that of a New York belle and a Semi?
nole Indian. Tuey are bright, intelligent fellows
however, and evidently know a city bill from a
greenback. The actors in this troupe are of both
sexes-fathers, mothers, sons and daughters. Thc
children are educated in the business of their pa?
rents, thus acquiring a remarkable subtlety of
action, and an extraordinary strength of nerve.
"One is almost cheated," says the Nashville Ban?
ner, "into the belief that the children have no
bones-are merely bundles of cartilagcnous sub?
stance. Their balancing feats aro nothing less
than astonishing. With them thc spinning of tops
is reduced to a fine art."
They are certain to draw full houses every night
during their stay, and every one should go to see
what curious things can be done in the way of pos?
turing, balancing, contortions, and other feats of
WHITE LABOR WANTED.-A Saetee planter writes
to General J. A. Wagoner, the Commissioner of
Immigration, as follows (.we translate the letter
from the Zeitung): "I take the liberty of address?
ing you, with a view of doing something to induce
the introduction of white labor in this vicinity. I
have two valuable cotton and provision plantations,
land and improvements in the best order. The
neighborhood is healthy, and the land fertile,
adapted for any crop without the use of any kind
of manure. I have from 800 to 900 acres of such
land ready to be cultivated. Oue of the planta?
tions is now in profitable cultivation with black
labor. For the other I wish to get white labor.
My plan is somewhat as follows : At first I should
like to settle on the place three or four families
with about tm or twelvo laboring persons, and
give the superintendence to some intelligent Ger?
man who speaks English, and I would tl.eu give
him all necessary adrice and directiou. I am will?
ing to enter upon any agreement, provided that I
shall not render myself liable to any losses. There is
plenty of wood, good water, aud tho buildings are
convenient and in good repair. I could furnish
stock, aa well as seed, the necessary implements
and provisions. With twelve good workers, it
would be easy to plant fifty acres iu rice, ten in
long cotton, and ten in corn, peas, turnips, cab?
bage, Sic. The proceeds would be about as fol?
Twelve hundred and fifty bushels, at $1.50. .11,875
Cotton, fifteen hundred pounds, at 75 cts. ... 1,125
Corn, peas, potatoes, Ac. 500
"This, however, is a very moderate calculation.
If thiBplan should be practicable in your opinion,
I shall be ready to give the most liberal terms
in order to make tho experiment. The climate,
perhaps, offers a difficulty, which, in former timcB,
waa considered sickly ; in thc last few years, how?
ever, white people have lived here the whole year,
and enjoyed good health."

THE STREET MOVEMENT.-Thc activity displayed
by the Committee on Streets has not been confin?
ed to East Bay, but is apparently general through?
out thc city. Tho asplin kum sidewalk on East
Bay has boon completed to a short distance of the
customhouse, and the laborers are now employed
in filling this pavement to a level with the street.
At preseut a lamp-post stands in thc centro of thit;
sidewalk, and as it is neither useful nor ornamen?
tal in that position, it should bc removed before
tho new pavement is laid. In King-street, near
me corner of Calhoun, the macadamizing plan has
been adopted, and a deposit of broken stones has
boen made. This style of paving streets was onc?
quite popular, and as the workhouse furnished
the material, it coul l bo laid at a small expense.
At present the stone-breaking establishment of thc
city is closed, and thc inmates of the jail are too
delicate fer such hard labor. Tho stones plated
on King-street will bc .quite serviceable, as the
ruts are quite deep, and in many places tho pa^e
mont ia verv uneven.

THE CHRISTMAS TBEE.-Commins' Hall was
crowded again yesterday evening with tho grave,
the gay and tho fair-all anxious to behold the
wonders of tho tree, and to find what gifts
Christkindel had in store for them. The night
was clear and beautitul, and thc bright moonlight
tempted many abroad who were irresistibly drawn
to the hall. Inside the arrangement was tho same
as on the previous night, the tree and its surround?
ings were unchanged, and tho supply of gifts
-seemed as inexhaustible as ever. Tne spectators
wore determined to test their luck, and, indeed, it
would have been impossible io rc fuse the charming
fairies who presonted their bags for just ono grab.
Other opportunities for making fortunes wero pre?
sented at every step, and tho several attractions
were only resisted when tho bottom of tho pocket
was reached. The tree and the goneral arrange?
ment of the internal decorations reflect great

OUR INTERNAL RESOURCES. - The habit of rely?
ing on the North for every article outside of the
products of the soil had boen fostered to such an
extent that it had become a se cond nature, and it
was only when the war sundered the ties that con?
nected the two sections and taught tho peoplo to
rely on themselves that our resources were de?
veloped. Since that period, discoveries have been
made that will tend to bring both capital and labor
to tho old Palmetto State ; but the most cheering
sign i3 the care that is being taken to improve and
develope tho agricultural and mechanical re?
sources of the State. Articles that wero once of I
no value are now exported largoly, and a trade is
being formed that will be of great advantage to
the State. Georgetown and Horry Districts have
always been celebrated for their cypress swamps,
and Con way boro' shingles were renowned for their
Messrs. Tucker & Jackson, merchants of this
city, have a largo number of bauds employed at
Tucker's mill, about twenty miles from George?
town, in the manufacture of cypress shingles,
which are shipped from the mills to Baltimore,
Philadelphia, and other Northern cities. This
branch of business is rapidly increasing, as the
fact is now well known that cypress shingles, pro?
perly prepared, will last for nearly fifty years, and
a shingled roof is almost as durable as slate or tin.
Vessels carrying these freights have a capacity of
300.000 to 400,000 shingles, and a number of vessels
are now waiting the announcement of tho lumber
merchants that cargoes are ready and thoy will sail
for Charleston or Georgetown with dispatch.
Messrs. T. & J. have at present about one hundred
hands cutting and preparing the lumber in tho
woods, but they design increasing their number,
and will accept all able-bodied workmen who csu
wield au sxo or handle a drawing knife.
HOME ion THE DESTITUTE.- Tho Home for the
destitute mothers, widows and dainhtcrs of de?
ceased Confederate soldiers, recently established
in this city, presents strong claims to the public
for their charitable donations. Tho enterprise has
been received with general favor, and those who
could spare from their worldly storo have gladly
contributed their mite to tho relics of thc lost
canse. Lisls have been placed in THE NEWS
office, and an} sums deposited will bo gladly re?
ceived for the association. In this connection it is
pleasing to note that some of thc charitable associa?
tions in thc city have heard tho appeal, and have
responded to the extent of their means. We ap?

Association and its reply, and urge upon associa?
