Penlan Love Song.
Ambition is tho riponed pear.
Mid frienrjsbip is the vine
Which, even round a ruin, will
It* clinging tendrils twiue.
But love is like a luscious peach
A touch iis bloom destroys;
Aa beautiful its blushing check,
As B weet its tasted joys.
But ever in its inmost heart
A poison hes concealed;
And all Hs sweetness fades away
Whtn Jealousy 'a revealed.
And woman often breaks her teeth
Against this heart or stone,
And, disappointed, finds in Love
But bitterness alone.
Ohl then, beware! go not too lar,
Or Jealousy y u 'li meet;
Just brush the bloom and tasto the fruit,
If you would find Love sweet.
Diplomacy Among the Celestials.
KB. BURLINGAME AND THE CHINESE MISSION
HIS TOBY OF HIS APPOINTMENT.
It ha9 already been announced that Mr. An
Bon Burlingame has been named by the Chi?
nese Government as its flr6t ambassador to
the Christian powers. Letters from Pekin show
how this appointment came to bo made and
Mr. Burlingame, as American Minister. Rave
the Chinese Government ample proof of his
diplomatic ability, and of bis sincero friendli?
ness to China. Ho took the load in urging the
adoption of what is known as the co-operative
Eolicy, bv which the autonomy of that country
as been* guaranteed, and tho old methed of
extortln? concessions by menace and force has
been didcarded. He dr?w up a paper constru?
ing the doubful passages in tho treaties, which
bas been aoeepted by all the members of the
diplomatic body at Pekin. He induced tho
Chi iese Government to emoloy Mr. Pumpiliy
to make a thorough examination of the coal
minan of Northern China. He procured tho
grant for the submarine telegraph from Canton
to Nintsing. He has constantly aided the mis?
sionaries in their work; has used all his influ?
ence to promote the study of the European
languages and the natural sciences in Pekin,
and has induced the Chinese Government to
employ foreigners io tue customhouses and in
other departments of the civil service.
Early in November Mr. Burlingame inform?
ed the Chinese Government that ho intended
to resign his post and return to his country.
It was attempted, unsuccessfully, to dissuade
him from this purpose. Finding him resolute.
Prince Erin g tendered him tho compliment of
a farewell dinner. All the members of the
council of foreign affairs were present. Several
mandarins spoke of the great service which
Mr. Burlingame had done China during his
visit to Europe and this country in 1865. Mr.
Burlingame answered that he would be ready
to say a good word for their country when tho
chance sbould present itself to him. The idea
of the embassy seems to have been suggested
by these s eecb.es. The Inspector-General of
Customs and the Secretary of the British Le
Sition were consulted, and two days after the
nner a deputation of high officials waited on
Mr. Burlingame Sud offered bim an appoint?
ment as ambassador. He accepted on the sin?
gle condition that the embassy "should bo
placed in all respects on a footiner of the high?
est respectability." Ur. Burlingame placed
his resignation as American Minister in tho
hands of Dr Williams, his secretary of lega?
tion. A week afterwards he reoei ed bis cre?
dentials from the hands of Prince Eung. Tho
documont is written on yellow siik, and beard
the gr eal seal of the Empire.
The ends which the Chinese Government bad
in view in this appointment are easily under?
stood, lt is only the logical result of the open?
ing of their ports to European merchants, tho
toleration of missions, tho reception of envoys
at P' kin, the encouragement given to tho in?
troduction of Lurop^au learning and manners,
and the employment of Europeans iu the civil
service. Tue Chinese Government, having
hopelessly drifted away from its old policy ot
non-intercourse, is cLar-sighted enough io see
the necessity and advantage of adopting the
systooi of international intercourse practiced
by the Western powers. In selecting Mr. Bur?
lingame as its first ambassador it has secured
the services of a man thoroughly conversant
with its situation, needs and wishes, '.nd fitted
bylong training in diplomacy to represent it
efficiently in the European courts.
Mr. Burlingame left Pekin on the morning
of November 25th. He was iscorted to tho
gates by all the foreign residents, including his
colleagues in the diplomatic body. In his suite
are the late tecretary of the British legation, a
French gentleman lately holding a high office
in the maritime customs, two mandarins, six
attaches se ected from the new college at Pe?
kin, and some twenty others. The pao y were
compelled to stop at a villago about forty-five
miles from Pekin, and send to that city for on
armed escort to protect them from a formida?
ble band of robbers which was scouring tho
district. Fortunately, they were not attacked.
Mr. Burlingame probably Bailed from Shanghai
for San Francisco on the 15th. After (.pending
Borne time at Washington, he will visit the capi?
tals of England, France, Holland, Belgium,
Prussia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Swe?
den and Norway, ana Russia.
GEOEQK FRANCIS TRAIN nt IRELAND_Tho
newspapers in Ireland are largely devoted to
the oratorical, philosophical, political, rhetori?
cal, and not always comprehensible flights of
George Francis Train. The Irish appear to be
delighted with bim, while the London Tory
journals are just beginning to realize the mis?
take that was made by placing him under
arrest. They acknowledgu now that Train
could not possibly have had a better advertise?
ment. Train will keep on talking in spite of
special constables of Her Majesty's magistrates
-though the talk, latterly, has been moro
cautious than it wai at first. The Cork Ex?
aminer, of the 8th instant, Bays :
After his lecture on Thursday night, Mr.
Tram was entertained by the membeis of the
Committee of Invitation at the Devonshire
Arms Hotel. Mr. Hodnett occupiad the chair,
and the Rev. Mr. Foley in the vice choir. Seve?
ral enihusiastio speeches were made, those of
Rev. Father Lynch aud Mr. Train being par?
ticularly tpicy. Having been toasted by thc
chairman as future President of tho United
States, Mr. Train paid a.l the compliments cus?
tomary with bim to American people aud the
American nation. With so many of the Catho?
lic clergy present, he said, and so many dis?
tinguished Cathojc clergymen about him, ho
would consider it a tnoute of affection from
4,000,000 Catholics in Ireland to 40.000 000
Catholics in America. [Loud cheers.] To?
night it was Father England which was with
toem, not, he was happy to say, Mother
England [Loud laughter.] After a brilliant
speech of twonvy miuutes* duration, pronounced
as one of Mr. Train's best efforts, he concluded
by quoting some poetical lines, which awaken?
ed enormous enthus asm m tho audience,
round after round of cheers greeting the con?
clusion of his speech.
A BOLD ATTEMPT TO ROB THE MALL, between
Camden and Lancaster, was made on Saturday
last. When about eleven miles from Camden,
near the residence of the late R. W. Love, thc
earner, a young man of seventeen or eighteen
years of aga, was mee by a negro man, wno
stopped him and domaudod the mail bags.
Upon his refusing to deliver thom, the uegr?
seized him by tho collar, dragged him out of
his boggy, and attempted to choke him. Tho
carrier cried aloud for help, which alarmed tho
negro and he ran off He was foiled in his at?
tempt upon the mail, but succeeded, during
the scuffle, in rifling the pockets of the carrier,
of a small amount of mon?y. The carrier doos
not know the negro by name, but can identify
him, having seen him at a store upon the road.

LIVERPOOL COTTON MA RE ET, February 8
For the week.-I he cotton market was quiot lu th
early part or tho week, and prices of BOIUO deacrii
dons ?ere burch supported; but rester tay and turor
to-day tho demand has beeu very active, particular!
from thc trade, with a comparatively limited sup
ph, and the wvek closes with great firmness, am
generally on upw. rd tendency. 1- or sea Island thor
has been an activo luquin, and holders of the med?

and the home and foreign homes have bo h been

larly active in goods suitable for tuc India aud China
markets. A very largo proportion of tho transactions
have been on speculation, or in anticipation of future
wants, and this will be certain to influence the mar?
ket later on in the year. Tho first appearance ot a
lull in the activity, indeed, would causo a considera?

Savannah Weekly Market.
[From the Advertiser.]
SAVANNAH, Fcbruaiy 26.-COTTON-Our !a*t
weekly report quoied tue market irret ular ou the ba?
sie of lS%c. for Middling. On Friday tho unfavora?
ble news fruin Liverpool and New York made factors
more anxious to realize at a coucc ssi.n trom previ?
ous demands, and the market closed dull and de
Saturday opened dull but favorable advices from
other markets led holders to be more firm st an ad?
vance which was conceded by buyers. As the day
advanced the very favorable reports from abroad
caused our market to become buoyant and excited,
closing at an advance of fully le. on all grades.
Ibe market on Monday was very active at an ad?
vance, but holders wero generally asking prices
above the views of buyers. Good sates were effected
at an advance of Kc
On luesdsy morning the market'opened with a
contint ation ot tho excitement of the previous day,
but the demand was principally from regular buyers,
Boe'-ulators -bowing but little disposition to enter on
a rlsins market. 1 rico-* cou timed to advance steadi?
ly during the day, the market closing quiet but firm
on the basis of 22>?a23c. for Middling.
Thc market openod quiet but firm on Wednesday
morning, with a disposition on the part of holders
to accept offers of the previous day, but buyers held
aloof, waiting cable advices. On the receipt of these,
which were very lavorable, buyers entered the mar?
ket, I ut found holders disposed to ask an advance,
which was finally conceded, though small sales were
made. . The market closed strong at an advance.
To-day the market opened with a good demand.
Holders'were not quite so firm in their ideas, though
asking ful.1 prices. Cable advices wero roceived early
in the day reporting an advance of >?d in Liverpool,
which caused holders to advance their prices. Most
of the sales were made bet?re noon, and some ot our
factors got ont at very handsome prioea, The latei
advi< es from New lork were not to favorable, show?
ing considerable weakness, although there had been
very heavy sales. This caused our market to be?
come very quiet, holders being willing to accept
prices which they had refused in the morning. Th
market closed very irregular. We quote Middling
held at 24c, but without buyers at this quotation ai
the close of the market.

Thc RODUNDA GUANO ia not a mineral pbos

aot a "maDi./ulauon" or Compound of f lah or Flesh

The regularity and nniformity of the nnenesa and

Th<3 extinguished feature of this ?-UPER-PHOS?
PHATE rrom nthor similar Fertilizers is, that all of
its ingredien'* art of animal origin, ar. J are either
soluble in water, or tn a condition to quickly become
soluble in the soil and be taken up by the crop.
Contains no inert or mineral materials.
The proper relative proportion of the ingredients
in MAFLS' Si PER-PHObPHATE to meet the re?
quirements ot the Cotton crop ou Georgia and South
Caro, ina solid, is fully proved by the experience of
planters who testified that wherever applied, even to
lund noted for rusting cotton, the disease is entirely
corrected, and a healthy, vigorous growth produced.
On the same land Peruvian Guano and oilier fertil?
izers have failed- to s-^cure a healthy growth.

Dr. E. M. ROYALL, Christ Church Parish, writes:
Applied at the rate of 160 to 200 pounce per acre on
11th April, on 22 acres blue clay land, a good de',
worn irom being planted in colton from 1867 to 18671
with only one year's rest during that time, and not?
withstanding the long continued cold and heavy rain,
and gales during the spring and summor, about tho
first cf September the crop on this field was estima?
ted by some of our best Judges to pi omiso a yield of
180 to200 pounds Uno Sea isiai'd Coitoi) Lani to the

the first cotton picked W..B from the held on which
M APES' PHOSPHATE was uccJ, and it has mado
about 66 pounda to the aore, while uo other man?

THOMAS a. ?ALTLB, Washington County, Ga., re
por. s that seventy-five pouuds per acre on ola land
increased both the Cotton and the Corn three-fold.
Considers it far more economical than Peruvian
Lr. E. PASSONS, Sandersvillo, Wallington County
"My observation is (hat MAPES' SUPER-PHOS?
PHATE is a preventive against rust in Cotton.
Has about doubled the Cotton and treolcrl the C?rnA

J. W. SCOTT, of same section, reports:
"That his crop manured with Peruvian Guano was
far more effected by drought aid ex es-Ive rains
than where MAPES' SUPaui-PHOSPHAli: was used.

B. B. HAMILTON, Americus, Ga., reports:
"Obtained the most satisfactory results from
MAfuS' SUPER-FHO.-.PHATE, applying it as a top
dressing. Considered to h ive had tho best garden,,

W. J. ANDEB80N, Fort Vallo>,Gr:., reports:
"MAPEa" ?iUfER-PHOSPHATE his doubled thu
crop ot cotton in every ease reported, and some re?
port it has more than doubled their crop. On wheat
and oats the results are veiy satisfactory."
D. A. WABNOCK, Beach Branch, S. C., re aorta :
"On land which always rusted cotton, increased
the crop twofold; is fine cotton as ho hm seen thia
year. Prevented rust Four rows unmanurcd rust?

the oold weather in Spring; kept perfectly green,
and growed ?nely; has beat Pe mu ?an Guano iu his
neighborhood. Believes lt to bo the BEST Manure
now in use."
E. E. LILES, Leesville, Arnon County, N. C., re?
"As compared with Peruvian Guano and Biugh's
Super-Phosphate, f e resait was decide-ily in favor
of MAPEa' bUPHEu-x'HOSPH VI E; atti louted, be?
yond doubt, tj thc fact that the ravages of the rust
were not, by a marked difference, BO severe where lt
was applied as where the other manures were."
JAKES MC.MEEEXS, Alston, s. c.. reports:
"Used a ton of Peruvian, aud found thu result but

Jon?; R. HATH, Mima. S. C. :
"Cotton was more vigorous and healthy, and ma?
tured at least two weeks earlier where MAPES*
SUPER-PHOSPHATE was used as compared with
other Fertilizers applied. MAPES' bUPER-PHOS
PHATE produced HO pounds per aero moro Cotton
than Rhodes' Super-Phosphate, and 60 pounds per
acre more than Soluble Pacific Guano. Same quan?
tity of each. 160 pounds, used to the acre, cultivated
in the same manner. MAPES' fcUPKR-PHOSPHATE
more than doubled the yield of Cotton."

"One application, 200 pounds M APES' SUPEB

manure for thc turnip and Irish potato."
P. 0. PENDLETON, YaldoBton, Ga., writea :
"MAPES* SUPER-PHOsPHATE has exceeded my
most sanguine expectations. The effects ot its use
on Corn, Peas and Garden V?g?tales was most
marked. If it can be always kept up to tho stan?
dard it must take the ptefereuce of all fertilizers in
M. B. HrjNTEB, Qqirman, Ga., reports:
"Applied at the rate of 150 pounds per acre upon
