VOLUME V.NO. 635. CHARLESTON, S. C., MONDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 2, 1867. PRICE FIVE CENTS
To Ute Header* of the Dally News-Oar
Kew Terms-The fash System.
Thc announcement that on anti after the first
of January the subscription price of THE DAILY
NEWS will be reduced to Six Dollars a year bas
been received with many substantial marks ot*
appreciation by the public, both in the city and
State. But in order to publish a tir&t-clu-s
paper at that low price, we shall be compelled,
in future, to adhere rigorously to the cash sys- j
tem, and require, invariably, the payment of
subscriptions in advance, lt should be gener?
ally understood that everything required for
the publication of :t newspaper-composition.
* paper, press-work, labor, and expenses of
every description-must unavoidably be paid
for in CASH at the end of every week. If thc
credit system is tolerated, aud subscribers
neglect to pay promptly, the losses thus in?
curred by publishers in a little while become
intolerably onerous and oppressive.
There are hundreds, however, in our city
who, though anxious to take a live newspaper,
and willing to pay for it, can ill alford, at this
y time, even the small outlay of six dollar
To accommodate this class of readers, we
have made arrangements by which, on and
after New Year's Day, THE DAILY NEWS will
be delivered, every morning, before seven
o'clock, in all parts of the city, by attentive
and experienced newsmen, at EIGHTEEN ("EMS
A WIK, payable weekly.
The advantages of this plan are evident at a
glance. Those who take their papers upon thc
weekly system only pay out their money, week
by week, as their papers are received : they
run no risk; they can stop their paper at any
time by giving one week's notice ; when they
leave the city for a few weeks they can suspend
their papers, and be at no expense. The yearly
cost at the weekly rate is more than when the
subscription at our advertised rates is paid in
advance at our office ; but there is every reason
to believe that the new plan will, by its sim?
plicity, security, and the smallness of thc cash
expense, enable many persons to take a daily
paper who could not bec ome subsoribers for as
long a period as six, or even three months. It
is our desire to accommodate all classes of
readers, and those who are not able to pay
their subscriptions in advance can take advan?
tage of the weekly arrangement, which will go
into operation on January 1, next.

then broke the seals of the packages and took out

-"I know,'' said King Theodore of Abyssinia,
lately, in a conversation with M. Legcau, "I know

battalions to strengthen the consuls. I am not a
raj:th of Hindostau, to be bamboozled in that way.

missions or the modes bj which European* try to
civilize tho rest of manki id. He sceuis to express

I. rend? Expedition to thc North Pole.
lu thc French Bulletin of tho Geographical*So?
ciety for August, wc find sotno particulars of thc
plan of an expedition to thc North Pole, under M.
Gustave Lambert, a former pupil of the Poly?
technic School, and navigator and hydrographer.
Ho proposes to attain his object by entering the
Arrtic Sea, through the Straits of Behring, "in
order to reach Polynia), an acknowledged open sea,
and thenco to thc North Pole itself." His project
is based on practical observations made by himself
at sea, and on certain mat ters assumed as granted,
mid has been presented by him in such a shape as
to enlist in its favor many influential rapportera,
among whom arc the Archbishop of Paris, thu Ex
Ministcr Drouy ii de LH'uys, and the French Em?
peror, who gives his cordial approval, and a con?
tribution ol' ten thousand dollars.
After mauy perilous attempts and much suffer?
ing and loss ol lifo, the problem of a northwest
passage by sea was solved by Captain McClure in
1853, ho far us to show a continuous water commu?
nication between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
A geographical problem was solved, but with it the
dream of a channel being found open for commer?
cial intercourse between Em ODO and Asia in that
direction, was disputed. Captain McClure, who
entered tho Arctic Sea by thc Straits ol' Behring,
could not carry his voisel through, but w?s
obliged to travel over the tightly-trezen passage
until he met bis^conntrymon in their exploration;!
from the east of Baffin's Bu? . The failure to find
a northwest passage from ocean to ocean for any
useful or practical purpose has, however, only
served to give another direction to the lovers of
Arctic adventure, wi.ich would seem tj bo attrac?
tive in proportion to its danger, and, ono might be
tempted lo add, in proportion to tho barrenness of
its results. Ii remains to ho shown how far science,
in its departments of climatology, natural history
and magnetism, has gamed in the different Arctic
expeditions. To roach the North Pole is now a
favorite geographica] problem, tho solution ol
which is deemed tho more easy since the belief in
nu open Polar Sea has gained .-o ninny advocates.
Opinions are divided as lo tho best direction to
bo taken for reaching th? Pole. M. Lambert, tho
French navigator, propase--, as we have seen, to
goby the Straits ol Behring on the northwest.
On tiie other Bido, or from the east, we find Cap?
tain Sherard Osborn, of thc British navy, Doctor
ll ayes, and others, recommend the route byway
of Smith's Sound throngh Baffin's Hay in vessels,
and from the former to tho Pole bv means of
sledges and boats. This was tho plan previously
projected timi virtually carried out by Dr. Kane,
one of whose companions, William .Morton, bend?
ing a sledge party, obtained, at au elevation of 5o?i
feet, ?i view Ol what he believed to lie an open sea,
"with an ?celosa horizon and a he ivy swell rolling
in with while caps." From Capo Parry, the north
em point of Smith's Sound, to tho Polo, tho dis?
tance is but ls4 geographical miles, and a jour?
ney back woulel make DCS miles, n distance
which has been repeatedly exceeded by Arc?
tic .-ledge and boat parlies. "Lieutenant
Hamilton did 1150 miles with a dog sledge
and on" man," and Dr. Hayes travelled 1300 hides
from thc time ht? loft his vessel jn Smith's .Sound
uutil bis return. But a majority of Arctic officers
are in favor ol' making the attempt by way of thc
Spitzbergen Seas, between the island ol'this name
a.?d that 'of Nova Zembla, on the faith in tho theo?
ry of Dr. Petermau, the eminent liorm m geogra?
pher, that a wntiu curren) flows from tho coast of
.Norway in thar direction into tho Polar Sea, and

Thc Ucean Itottom.
Mr. Green, tho famous diver, tells singular
stories of his adventures, when making search in
tho deep waters of the ocean. Ho gives some new
sketches ed'what ho saw al the "Silver Bank,' near
Tiie banks or coral an which my divings were
made are about forty miles in length,and hom len
to twenty in breadth. On this bank of coral is
presented lo the diver ono of tho most beautiful
and sublime seems tho eye ever I? held. The
watei >..ii. .- from tun to ono hundred feet in
depth, and so clear thal thc divorc msec from two
to throe hunelrcd feet whon submerged, with but
little oh (ruction to tho sight.
The bottom <>i the ocean in many places, is as
smooth as a marble flour; III others i! is studded
with coral columns, from icu to ono huudrcd Icc
in height, and hom ono tu eight) '?11 hi diameter.
I'he tops of th'-, o more lofty support a myriad of
pyramidal pendant?, cacti forming a myriad moro
giving rea!i!y lo the imaginary abode of some
wa' r-aymph. lu other pim ?: the pendants form
arch after arch, and, a.- tho diver stands on thc

they received, although of. .?. ry shade, and en
liicly difforcnt from plants that I am familiar with
that*vegetate UJKIII dry ?ant!. OM: in particular
attracted roy attention; it resembled a .tea-fan ol
?inmenso size of variegated colors, and the mos!
brilliant hue. thc fish which inhabit these "Sil?
ver Banks"] found as different in kind as the
scenery was varied. They were of ?ll forms, <->>l
ois, and sixes- -lrom the symmetrical goby to the
glob-li!. . sunfish; from the dullest hue lo thc
changeable dolphin; from th<- siiots of tho leopard
lo Hie hues <>f the sunbeam; from the harmless
minnow to the voracious shark.
Some had heads like squirrels, uthers Uki cats
and dogs, somo of small size resembled thu bull
terrier. Some darted through the wal r like me?
teors, while others could scarcely be seen to move.
Tu enumerate and explain all thc various kinds
?f tish I beheld while diving on these banks
would, were I enough of a naturalist so to do, re?
quire more than my limita allow; tor I am con?
vinced that most of the "rinds of tish which inhabit
tho tropical seas can bo found there. Tho sun
fish, star tish, white shark aud blue or shovel-nose
shark were often seen.
There were also fish which resembled plants,
and remained as fixed in their position as a shrub;
tliooidv power they possessed was to open and
shut when in danger. Some of them resembled
thc rose when in full bloom, abd were ol'all hues.
There were thc ribbon fish, from four or five inches
to throe feet in length; their eyes are very large,
and protrude like those of a frog.
Another fish is spotted like a leopard, from three
to ten feet in length. J hey build their houses
like beavers, in which they spa wu, and the male
or female watches the egg until it hatches. I
saw many specimens of the tireen turtle, some five
feet loni;', which 1 should think would weigh from
100 to 500 pownds.

Northern Pacific-and especially that the vicinity
of thc Aleutian or Western Islands ol' Aliaska
were thc habitat--the favorite home of tho genu?
ine cod, equaling in size, flavor, and abondance,
tho far-famed Newfoundland species of this fish.
In truth, tho two nre so nearly identical in taste
that tho Nantucket sailors tho best of judges -
claim that they cannot bc distinguished.
For several Bensons there has been an increasing
number of vessels from San Francisco and Van?
couver visiting the coast of Ounalaska and tho
adjacent islands, where there is a series of banks,
from 250 to -100 feet in depth, swarming with what
Hawthorne calls .' the sturdy, awkward fish which
never deludes the angler.' Thir success has only
been partial, for the Russians have never allowed
any foreign vessels to land and cur . tish on tho
coast, rho .season for drying them ia from April
to the middle of October. Now that thc seafar?
ing men of this coast havo opened to them the
needed facilities on shore for drying aud packing,
tho business will become remunerative and stable.
Tho market for dried fish at t he East has always
been certain. When developed it caunol be less
so on tho Pacific. Compared with mining, it af?
fords a far more certain and trustworthy profit.
Nor aro thc waters abounding with tho cod
limited to the region of Uunalaslm. Seven hun?
dred miles lurther west, at Attoo-the most re?
mote of our newly pureba cd islands-Captain
Kent zo!, as well as all Russian authorities,reports
the codas readily caught as upon any part of tho
coast. The fishing ground is unlimited; and whilo
this field ol' productive industry has not tho ex?
citement and rapid growth which sometimes at?
tends tho development of tho mining woalth of
thc country, yet is lree from tho ruinous reverses
which HO "often overwholm tho latter. The wide
net-work of channels, sounds, and straits which
surround thc Sitka, or eastern grqup of islauds
arc, singularly enough, entirely destitute of cod,
but their absein e is fully compensated for by the
great abundance of .-almora and halibut, of which
these waters aro extremely prolific. There aro
four distinct, species of Ba Inion, tho most nume?
rous of which have tho plumpness, small head and
red flesh of the genuine ''Konncbec," so mucti
prized bv the gourmands of Boston aud New York.
At ihe dam of tho artificial ice pond, at tho head
of Rcdutzky Lake, two thousand barrels can bo
caught at odell spring "run," although thc stream
isa comparatively shallow one. At thc mouin of
theStickeen they are taken weighing from thirty
to fifty pounds, and in all thc mainland'tho island
streams-even tho smaller creeks-thc;, are found
lo quantities which, il'staled at the Ea-t. would at
once oft pronounced a ''fish story." Tin y lorin
tho staple artiel? of food with the native tribes on
this coast, who aro trait; to tnko them with tho
rudest contrivances. Enter thc huts of any Indian
village, oven in October, when they are'ruputed
scarce, and you will find thickly HtispeuJed over
hbYid long rows of red salmon m tho process of
?ryil?? aud smoking. Last week L saw two natives
return w'ii.'i ono hundred and seven as thc result
of the day's \. ^.rk.
Tho halibut htrs.. a well-known value on the
Pacific coast, and is r?^'led as equal, if not su?
perior, to thoso found nv.*ho Atlantic market.
Thoro is no part of tho world Chere they aro so
abundant as among the waters surrounding these
islands. They can bc caught at all seasOnS. From
Chatham Straits, thirty railes abovo here, tL..' In?
dians brim; thom in weighing 350 pouuds. If is
amusing lo seo with what dexterity a Koloosh will"
take ono ol' the.se unwieldy fellows into his canoe.
A landsmau would overturn his skiff m attcmplintr
to "bag" ono of fifty pounds; hut 1 havo seen a na?
tive hook one of three times that weight, break
its neck as it emerged from the water, and slide it
as readily over thc stern of his canoe as if it were
a common flounder. lhere can bc no doubt that
at some future time- probably not many years
the catching and curing of halibut will become a
regular business in Eastern Aliaska.
I must not omit to mention thc existence and
peculiarities ol'another fish-ono not mentioned
nt the "books"-which is lound in great numbers
in tho coast rivers, from tho N'tss to the Stickeen.
lt is spoken of as the "oolikon" by the Hudson
Hay Company, but is generally known as the
"small fish," or "candle fish," among the coasters,
lt appears annually ubout tho first week in .May,
and Mr. Ainsley, tho pilot of the John L. Stephens,
says that on some days ho has known it difficult to
row a boat across tho'mouth of tho Naas. River on
account of the denso mass of these fish m tho
water. Sometimes an f.dvcrse fido or heavy winda
bilges tons ot them upon thc shore. The Indians
know of their arrival by thc flight of the birds
northward. They soldom continue over fifteen
days, and during this time tho natives ?rom Fort
fjimpsou and all the adjacent regions hasten to
.tho least of fat things." This fish is six to eight
iuch03 long, in form resembles tho smelt, has a
shining and almost transparent appearance, and
of all tile finny tribes is the most fat. Its lat
Las not tho oily, raueid tasto of other fish, but has
tho sweet taste of fresh lard. Tho Indians store
great quantities of it, and if well carod for it re?
mains sweet for months. When they are dried
tho Indiaus often turn thom to a novel and practi?
cal account-burn them m place of candles. They
give a clear, brilliant light, and are not liablo to
be blown out by thc wind. Mr. Manson, tho Su?
perintendent at Fort Simpson, says that the tail
should be lighted instead of the head, and that
each fish will last about fifteen minut?s. In a
dark night the men who took natives for guides
used to reckon a mile o;f travel for every five fish
Another luaus natura ot the Aliaska coast is tho
mammoth crab, found in tho waters of Cook's
Inlet, and Prince Willi nu's Sound. Wore it not
well authenticated one would hardly credit its size.
It measures full F'X feet from tip lo tip of its
claws. Captain Lctnarmhefsky of tho Alexandria,
caught eight of thom, and found that ho could put
the bodies ot only throe in a barrel. Thc legs arc
about tho size of a man's wrist, and aro filled with
palatable meat. They are not numerous, ?laving
the structure of the common crab, their sizo fits
them for a deeper and sal" homo in the ocean.
