PATION-PROFITS OF THE JUNK
ES REGARD TO THEM.
ETC., ETC., ETC
There are few persons who are aware ol
peculiarities of the junk trade; wha
bought, and whero it comes from. The or
two small shops which a few years ago 1
found iu out-of-the-way sections of tho
have increased and multiplied, and the ow
in many instances have acquired a goodly
of filthy lucro. There are now forty licei
junk-shop3 in the city which are scattered f
South Bay to Line-street, and from the Coi
to the Ashley. "Tall oaks from little ac<
grow," and many of the small beginner
this trade, who have started in a hole in
wall scarcely largo enough to swing a
around, expoct to attain the dignity of ri
chant princes. The shops are generally li
ted in unfrequented back streets, and some
serted carriage house is selected where
rubbish can be stored, under thj eyes of
owner, and his nose can be regaled with
balm of a thousand effluvias that emanate fi
the different piles. A glance into one of th
shops would soon convince the visitor tha
was an omnium gallierum. Nothing is
mean to be purchased, and the collection c
sists ol every imaginable article, from an
bone to a bar of railroad iron. Rage, boc
old iron and scrap metals are the general cc
modifies offered for sale, and when the dill
ent piles become too formidable in size s
smell, they are put in crates and sold to I
head centres of the junkers, Messrs. Moi
Goldsmith & Son, and Wm. Meade, and shipr
by them to Bost on. In describing these jul
shops, it would be well to consider first h
their motley stock is collected. The first w
has a hand in the dirty pie is
This individual is not unknown to fal
as he has been graphically described
several prominent writers. The chiffon;
of the romances was, as his name in
cates, a Parisian, and somewhat diff?re
from those who scratch the dirt heaps
our streets. In this benighted land the 01
ploy mont of chiffonier is monopolized aime
exclusively by tho darkies who ply their voe
tion from early morn to dewy eve. They are
both sexes, generally of an advanced age, ai
are to be distinguished by a chronic stoop, whii
they have acquired from long bending, bo
over their muck heaps and under the weight
their plunder. Whatever is collected is
once put into a bag, and the search being co
eluded, the poor chiffonier staggers to tbe ne
inviting pile and renews bis investigation
Where these characters liva or how they co
trivo to support themselves is unknown. Tl
Parisian chiffonier has been known to seen
valuable prizes of jewelry from his dust heap
but with tho poverty now prevalent in this lat
such an event is almost an impossibility. Win
tbo trash is collected it is assorted, and tl
bones, rags and other scraps separated; thoi
are then taken to the nearest junk-shop ar
sold readily at one-quarter to one-half cent p<
pound, the metals t ringing higher price
lhere is, however, no settled rate, as the prie
given is governed by circumstances. As thei
aro fow families who savo thoir rags and oth(
rubbish, tbo dirt heaps uro always rich Wit
this dost.rip.ion of plunder, and to the chi:
loniei present au alluring field for speculatioi
Having described thc chiffonier we next com
Webster, strango to say, even in his "Ur
abridged," ignores the word that forms tb
subject of the present article. We find ther
"junk, n. [Lat. juncus, Fr. jone, lt. gtuncc
a bulrush, ot which ropes were made in earl
ages]. Pieces of old cab] J or old cordage
used fur making paints, gaskets, mats, Ac.
and when picked to pieces, forming oakum fo
filling the seams of ships." This is clearly th
ancestor of the modern junk-shop, and ou
readers, we feel assured, will bj content wit!
tbis hint as to its aboriginal etymology.
In tho large cities of Europe, whero popula
tion is dense und hfo a struggle, the rag-pick
er has long been an institution, and in th
odoriferous suburban precincts may be lonni
tho de Uer in "old clo'," in rags, old iron, glass
boues, etc.; but iu the United States, anc
more especially in our highly favored Southon
country, the chiffonier was but little known be
fore the war. There wore "junk-shops," it ii
true, even in Charleston in days long gone by
but they were few and far between, and form
od but the nucleus of the present flourishing
Enter one of these original junk-shops. It ii
usually located somewhere in the vicinity of s
sailors' boarding house. The firet af traction
to your sonsos is the smell, a combination ol
tar, salt water and sulphuretted hydrogen
Most of our readers have heard of the balm ol
a thousand flowers, but as Coleridge wrote ol
Cologne, there is in every junk-shop t . n thou?
sand well defined and soparate stinks. The
proprietor himself generally partakes largely
of tho "loud" characteristics of thc place. A
first-class junki6t is supposed to be possessed
of unbounded information over everything re?
lating to old clo' a-..d old iron. His shop is an
omnium gatherum of almost every conceivable
object that bas boen boru, grown or manufac?
tured, from a petrified mermaid to a four-inch
cable. He is on the host terms with all thc
indefatigable little boya in town, from whom
he buys tboir metallic Tickings at rates which
tempt their cupidity, and givo them tho alpha?
betical lessons in crime. The consequence is that
in the course of a very few month3 what might,
under other circumstances, bo a respectable
twelve-loot chamber, is turned into a receptacle
where the most incongruous materials in all
shapes, sizes anil conditions, are thrown helter
skelter, waiting to be finally transformed in
the furnace of tho foundry into shapes of use?
fulness and beauty.
Hero there is a pile of lead pipe, lhere a half
bushel of nails, yonder mounds ot matter, com?
posed of sheot iron, bits of shells, gas tubes,
pumps, and every conceivable description of
metal. This, however, constitutes but a single
department. The ragman comes in and emp?
ties his dirty stores. Bags and crates of paper
and torn envelopes find their place. The bone
gatherer makes his osseous deposits; while thc
pertinacious little fellow who collects every?
thing in tho shape of glass, from the Lillipu?
tian homeopathic vial to tho cyclopean ex-re?
ceptacle of Eppings Sarsaparilla, finds a ready
customer in our heroes, the great junkists.
The shop is one o' nose places whero the
right hand knoweth not what the left hand
doeth. The propnotor is emphatically mum.
He asks no questions, and of courso tells no
lies. Detectives only know thc ins and outs of
these curicus establishments; and it is not un
frequently the case that last night's plunder
is traced with unerring precision to the dim
and musty recesses of these unclean haunts.
The enterprise is, h nvever, undoubtedly one
which, in the language of the world, pays.
Whether lesitimatoly or illegitimately conduct?
ed, there is always a margin ot profit which
compensates handsomely for tho small invest?
ments made. From two hundred to five hun?
dred per cent, are the ordinary rates upon
tho shipment of tbeso miscellaneous collec?
tions, and lhere aro few of the so-called junk
dealers, who in the course of time have not
barn able, father to retiro from business with
handsome fortunes, or divert their profits into
lesa quostio/iablo channels of trade.
When Mayor Miles carno into office in 1855,
the Police department was reorganized, and as
a ni tura 1 sequence all unlicensed dealers of
every description wero hauled over the coals.
The Mayor recommended to Council that an
ordinance uhould be passed which would regu?
late the junk-shop dealers. In accordance
with his suggestion tho following regulations
were adoptad, and have been continued in
force from that time without any variation.
The ordinance regulating junk-shops was
passed in 1857, and has been in force since
that time. It provides that the junk-shop
keeper shall pay a license of $50-the applica?
tion to be recommended by three respectable
freeholders, and when tho Uceuse is granted, a
bond shall be executed iu tho sum of $1000,
with two approved sureties. Each poison re?
ceiving a license shall put over the entrance of
the shop a sign designating thc name and
number of the license. The ordinance also
provides that tho junk-kceper shall have a
book, in which shall be written a description of
the articles purchased or bartered for, the name
and residence of the person from whom re?
ceived, and the day and hour when the pur?
chase was made. This book was to be at all
times open to the inspection of the Mayor, or
any official authorized to inspect the same.
The shops are not to be opened except between
sunrise and sunset, and the keepers shall never
either directly or indirectly, purcliaso any arti?
cle from a minor or apprentice, except when a
Witten permission is produced. Persons vio?
lating this ordinance aro subject to be fined
from $10 to $50; and all persons who keep a
junk-shop without a license, are fined from $50
It will be seen that even at that early day
sheae shops were carefully watched, and the
amount ol' the license and fine was proportion?
ed to the chances afforded for rascality.
Junk-shops now form an important branch
of trade. Their notoriety has considerably in?
creased of late, and chiefly, we must add, in
the police courts. There are few thefts of
metals where the Stolen plunder has not boon
traced to some unprincipled junk dealer.
The ordinance passed in 1857 was intended for
those peaceful days when the baneful influences
of war were unknown. Since that time, how?
ever, these shops have multiplied, and have too
often (to their discredit be it said) proved but
harbors for rascality. It would be unjust to
charge the whole fraternity with the laults of a
few, but tho facts we have stated aro notorious,
and call for some remedy. Tho liconso tax now
paid is but the small sum of fifty dollars, and
the TJuited States Revenue requires but ten
dollars per annum when tho Bales arc under
twenty-five thousand dollars, and fifty dollars
when they exceed that amount, which is con?
sidered a wholesale license tax. Tho fine
for selling without a license is, however,
placed at $500. In Savannah the municipal tax
is $250, and this is readily paid, those engaging
in the business finding it profitable even with
that outlay. With tho exception of Messrs.
Moses Goldsmith & Son, the junk dealers in
thia city pay only tho retail tax to tho United
States, and the municipal tax is but a trifle
when deducted from the enormous profits that
are made on their miscellaneous stores. Each
of the small dealers collect their conglomerat?
ed piles and soil thom cither to Messrs. MOM
Goldsmith <fe Son or to Mr. William Meade, by
whom they are shipped to Boston. Tho ictail
dealers, of course, make their profit, which is
generally moro than doublod by tho shippers.
Tho latter do not, howover, confino themselves
to this smaU trade, but aie themselves pur?
chasers to a large extent, and secure every?
thing in the shape of iron, from a columbiad
to a steam engine. Tho largo amount of dam?
aged army materials rocently sold at tho
Charlosto* Arsenal and other points, was most?
ly bought in by the wholeaalo junk dealers at a
comparatively small aura and shipped to Bos?
While juuk-shops may be considered au im?
portant accessory to a largo city, it is necessa?
ry that they should bc rogulatod by proper or?
dinances. They have doubtless relieved
Charleston o? a largo amount of unnecessary
rubbish, but they unfortunately offer an in?
viting opouing for receiving stolen gt ods, and
unless tho laws aro made more stringent, not
only citizens, but corporations will bu suffer?
ers to a largo extent. Tho South Carolina
Railroad has for some timo been robbed of its
iron. Through the exertions of tho city de?
tectives tho stolen plunder was traced to a
junk-shop, and tbo thieves arrested. As we
stated before, thee o arc exceptional cases.
The majority of tho junk doalers con?
duct their businoss in accordance with law
and order. They are aa necessary to tho city
as scavengers, and if they can contrive tomnko
money out of thoir odoriferous collections, and
to make it honestly, we can only bid thom
"God speed," and 6ay that it ia a good riddan e
of bad rubbish.
Some quaint philosopher hos said that tho
blood of an Alexander may finally become, in
ito concentration, tho buug of a boer barrel,
and who can tell tho richness ot' thc atoros col?
lected, sold and remodelled into new and useful
shapes after they have passed thc eagle cyo of
your first-claBS dealer in junk?

THE THEATRE.-Tho house last night was
literally jammed. Every seat waa taken, and
chairs were brought in to accommodate tho
numbers who were standing. "Kathleen
Mavourneen" and "Terence O'Moore" were the
great attractions. "Kathleen's" winning wavB
and livoly songs won her hosts of friends,
while the song, "Wearing of the Green,
brought down tho house. Mr. and Mrs. Wat?
kins have brought with them the highest cre?
dentials from the Dublin theatre, and the
audience that greeted them last night was
convincing proof that they were appreciated as
actors of the highest order. Tho play was
admirably performed, and was received
throughout with rounds of applause.
THBOUOH TO SAVANNAH.-Few persons who
bavo travolled on the Charleston and Savannah
Steam Packet line would desiro any other form
of conveyance. The boats and their captains
are known to every one who has visited either
city. The Pilot Boy and Fannie are almost
household words, while Captains McNelty and
Peck aro famous for their attention to the wants
of their passengers and their expertness as sea?
men. Until the railroad is completed, this line
will continue to command the greater part of
the trade, '?he trip is short and pleasant, un?
less the unfortunate passenger should be af?
flicted with the mal de mer; but this terror is
of short duration, as the route is principally
inland, where the raging billows do not roll.
Once i 1 Savannah, the traveller naturally soeks
a resting place, and this can be easily obtained
from the genial proprietor of the Screven House,
Mr. G. McG nley, who was formerly connected
with the MillB House, iu this city, and conse?
quently " knows how to keep a hotel."
FINANCIAL.- We would direct attention to
thc advertisement of Mr. Andrew M. Moreland.

Under its stimulative influence, and by Its pen?
etrative agency, this health invlgoiating cordial ex?
cites a general beneficial reaction, and disperses the
impermeable obstructions which prevent access to
other remedies. While gradually reducing the ac?
companying constriction which attends the malady,
it reproduces tho essential warmth and elastic vigor
of the respiratory vessels, which, by this remedial
combination, promotes tho healing process by which
relief and cure is effected.
Hemorrhages are arrested and cured, with every
other concurrent disorder.
As neither narcotic nor emetic properties of any
kind are employed in this Puluionic Compound, and
tho most assiduous attention given to the quality
and medical value of each component article which
constitute it, it ia confidenUy and conscientiously
recommended for its safety and reliability, without
?striction in generous, wholesome diet, or appre?
hension of renewed cold from iU effects.
