CORRECT STYLE IN WRITTSG AND SPEAKING.
Wo quoto from John Stuart Mill's account of
the style of the ancient writers : "The secret
of the style of thc groat Greek and Roman au?
thors is that it is the perfection of good sense.
Ihey never uso a word without a meaning, o>
0 nord which adds nothing to the meaning. It
never entered into their thoughts to conceive a
piece of writing as beautiful in itself, abstract?
edly lrom what it had to express; ile beauly
must all ko subservient to the most perfvc; ex?
pression of the sense. The perfection ol work?
manship ia only visible in thc absence of
everything which distracts thc mind from the
main purpose, it was only in the decline of
ancient liteiituro that ornament begi n to bo
cultivated merely as ornament. Even descrip?
tive epithets were one of the corruptions of
style which abound in Lucan, for instance. The
word had no business there unless it brought
out some feature relating to the matter iii
hand. Ornament for the sake of ornament de?
feats the very purpoi^-of the speaker by call?
ing off atteutiou from tho main object." This
is the first grand lossun iu composition to be
learned from tbe classical authors."

THE GERMANS IS SEW YORK.
Their Growing Numbers and Influence
-How they Thrive and Grow Rich
Their Social and Domestic Habits
The Music "Gardens" of the Bowery
From the letter of an observant correspon?
dent in New York we take the following :
Among the principal business houses in the
city there is a large element of the German
races. Take the great impoiting houses on
Broadway, Murray, Warren and other ad?
jacent streets, it will be found that a largo per?
centage of them are either wholly Germans or
have Germans in the firm. Some of thc best
business men are Germane-some ol the widest
known. In fact this German spirit of care,
enterprise, tact, which animates the race the
world over, has done much to give New York
its wonderful commercial strength, and its
joining with tho k:eo, nervous American habit,
is the very suceess and life of the city.
The leaders in the stock murket and on "thc
street" are Gemiaus or German-Americans.
Tho Mayor of the city has a German descent.
Some ot the ablest lawyers are sturdy Ger?
mans. Two of tho most euccct-ful physicians
of uppertendoni were born and educ-led in
Ber'iin. Om- musicians, in a Inrge majority,
are Germans; so, too, are our best artists an i
designers. Fur there aro no people that bring
so much real culture to our shores, so much
substantial worth, or so much capacity for all
the varied business and enterprises of tho land
as this class of liberally educated, right-mind?
ed Germans, restricted at home and bound,
but finding scope in Republican America for all
their natural genius and fully acquired arts.
And if there is one lesson we can learn from
them beyond aught else, it 13 tho lesson of
thorough preparation for the business ot life.
What they know is well known. And deep
knowledge gives them often tho start of us,
with all our intense activity an I ambitious
working. They are great people for making
tho step in advance sure beforo undertaking it.
But when it bas been taken it is firmly held.
There are prominent examples of this "in the
establishments of some nf our great business
houses. They were commenced humbly, and
slowly extended; but to-day thesj German
princely houses ot trade are the soundest in the
Our German folks are very social, and very
fond of amusements. During business hours
they are hard workers, but do not run their
work into untimely hours, or make the working
day too long. When out for amusement they
give it their whole soul. The rosidonco of the
well-to-do German is fitted up for comfoit and
pleasure. Father and mother enter into the
sports and pastimes of the children. The old
are as tho young, and throw off the cares of life
with hilarity. tJjmo of the German homes in
this city are really modela of domestic bliss.
Tho father comes home at night, no do bt wea?
ried by the day's toil, but he does not dive into
the newspaper, and Bit mute as an owl all the
evening, casting a gloom over the family circle,
or perchance rush off to the "lodge" or "club,"
as if home was only an eating and lodging
place; but, tho evening moal being over, games
are proposed, dancing or singing is enjoyed, or
tho whole family, baby and all, start ?ut for
some musical br dramatic society, of which
there aro scores, or to the German theatre, or
quite likely to ono of tho large and splendid
"gardons," where the best of music is com?
bined with thc social meolin? of frieuds, and
tho refreshing with mild lager, of which the
"baby" has a full share. And it is by describ?
ing ono of theso German beer gardens that 1
will conclude my sketch.
\\uy those favorito places are called "gar?
dens," 1 can't imagine, for they an all under
cover, being spacious wooden oue-stoiy budd
iugs, with high arched r:ofs. The interior is
gaylv painted and decorated, and tho busts of
great German poets und musicians and heroos
arc conspicuously plac d all around. Thc one
I will go to is known as thc Atlantic Gardon,
situated on tho Bowery, uni tho largest iuNew
York. Ii ba< sitting room for throo thousand
people at the small tables, lt is tho brightest
and gayest of thom all, and shows off this pe?
culiar German amusement in the best light.
On ono side is a nigh balcony tor tho orchestra,
which nunib.-rs forty, and forty they aro of tho
finest artists in thc city, for our German friends
cin't tolerate anything but good music. Tho
selections they play arc norn all the popular
operas, including national airs of Europe
and America. At tho tables wholo families
are scated, drinking lager, eating tho Swiss
chce80, (he steamed sausages, German bread
and cakes, chatting merrily with oach
other in their own language, singing bits of
opera as tin band plays, very merry, enjoying
a good doal, uud yet making no riot or confu?
sion. Ovorhcad, sweet singing' birds are join?
ing in thc ificc; thc fcuuluina arc sending U;J
sparkling showers, which glistC? in the count?
less gas lights liko so mar.y diamonds. Wait?
ers are busy supplying the tables with tho
clear, whito crested Jag'.r. Thc ;>moke of two
hundred cigars floats 0:1 thc air. and tli3 clink
of glasses is heard over thc garden as friends
pledge triendd in many libations. Everybody
is there, from tho hoad of the lamily to its
most beautilul madchen. There is 110 rude?
ness, no drunken quarrels, nothing but a wide?
spread merrymaking, in which all joiu with in?
Gradually tho groups sep?ralo as the hours
fly hy; and when the hour of midnight is
struck thc lights go out on tho joyous festival,
thc garden is dull and bare until thc sands of
timt; run round to tha evo ol thc morrow.

"double-thread" machines, that "thc 'Willcox
?.V. Gibbs' Htich ia not reliable;" that "thc seam
will rip-" that ' thc work will conic to pieces
before the garment is worn out," 4c, &c. How
these charges tally ?Uh the verdict ol thc jury
at thc "Grand Trial at Island Tari; '-the fol?
lowing extract from the "Report" of that trial
will show :
"Again each party claims that his stich is
the least liable to rip by tho ordinary strain
upon the seam of a garment in use. 'lui test
requires a row of parallel stitching to be made
by each machine, lengthwise, across a narrow
strip of two thicknesses of muslin; and this
strip is then cut across at every half an inch,
making it into sm.? ihr strips, each as long as
tho width of the original piece. Each judge
takes oucof theso s-nall strips, and opening ihe
folds on Ihe 'lock stitch' side, pulls on the ends
in opposite directions, and thc lock stitch seam
rips out. The folds being thus opened to the
Willcox & Gibbs' seam, ho continues pulling,
bnt this seam refuses to rip. He pulls strong?
er, but this onlv tightous tue stitch; tho mate?
rial gives way, but the seam holds last." And
tho jury, in accordance with the facts, render
the following verdict :
"Its seam" (the Willcox & Gibbs) "has the
peculiar advantage of b "mg readily taken out,
when it is desirable; while it is less hablo to
rip, in usc or wear, than tho lock-stitch."
TEA AS A MEDICAL STIMULANT.-The last
number of tho Boston Medical and Surgical
Journal contains an interesting communica?
tion upon the action of thein on the human
system. Thein is an integral part of tea, and
gives to that herb its peculiarforee as a stimu?
lant, lt .6 also found in coffee, and incertain
South American phills, whose leaves are used
to prepare a table beverage. Ihe author of
the article in question made several experi?
ments 01 them upon human cases. It was
lound that in every instance thc pulse was
lowered, a nervous tr mu.ousness followed, and
special mental activity was noticeable. Oue
gentleman, nuder tho influence of this alka?
loid, spoke enipha'ieally oflns "increased brain
power, enabling him to read certain books,
which ho ba j bo. oro accounted as abstruse,
with thc greatest case, and nu extra?
ordinary power of grasping the subject without
any effort, as he read rapidly on." The
to ttiaiouj of "one of the most powcrlul writers
amongst om- No* E- g.aud women'' w also ad?
duced. Ihr testimony ?va* to the i fi'jct that
"some horns after taking a largo quantity of
tea she felt that then- was nothing loft but her
head, which furnished rapidly language of
ideas of the beat quality, and in goodly.qnantity, j
all night long." In Us medical form thein ia j
employed as a nodative. This, by the way, ap?
pears BomethlAff M?O a stroug allopathic en?
dorsement of ??.ihuetnaii's theory. It cures
neuralgic headaches, where pills ?ire objected
lo. Tiicio ointment for the hair is found to
Lave like effect. Postiles made with thein,
when bnrut in n room, arc said to produce au
equally sooibcig effect to irr.table nerves.

ITEMS OF STATE NEWS.
-We learn from Pendleton, that the gin
house of Sloan & Sloan, containing a quantity
o? cotton, waa accidentally destroyed by fire on
Tuesday. No insurance.
-Of sale day in Darlington, tho Domocrat
s ivs : There waa a full attendance on last
Monday, and considerable property changed
bands at veiy low prices.
-The Newberry Herald says: "The immense
trains loaded with cotton which poss down the
Greenville and Columbia Railroad, and whic'i
require two engince- generally, one before and
ono behind, to propel to then- destination, or
tho termination of this road, gives good proof
of tho abundance of tho great staple raised in
the up-country, and the good priced roalized
is making money matters easy with planters,
merchants and in fact all classes."
-Of sale-day in Newberry, tho Herald says :
"On Monday last an unusually large number
of persons from tho country were in town,
which, with tho scoro or two of wa ;ous, filled
with cotton and produce, lUSde tho scene an
animated and busthng one. The business
dono on that day fully satisfied our enter?
prising merchants; all were busy, which, how?
ever, wo are glad to say, is usually the case
wita them, only on this" occuaion a little moro

BANKBUPICY OF THE BANK OF NORIH CARO?
LINA.-A diapatch to tho New York Herald from
Raleigh, North Carolina, November second,
The old Bank of Norh Carolina baa been
driven into bankruptcy by the creditors in New
York, who demanded pa,r value for notca held
against tho bank ii nd bought since thc close of
the war. This has been accomplished by a
Mew York ring, which, by attachment, took up
every dollar tho oank acut to New York with a
view to re-establish ita linancos. Tho liabili?
ties of the hank arc about $300,000, mainly
notes. Its assets will pay sixty cents, on the
dollar. Property owned by thia bank, consist
tug of rosin fi?las and cotton, was seized by
Governor Holden when uo was appointed Pro?
visional Governor, and sold to defray expenses
ol'the Provisional Government; hence one of
the causes why thc bank baa boen thrown into
SLAVERY IN CUBA.-Thc committee of thc
British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society has
forwarded an address to the members of tho
provisional government in Spain, in which
they express tho desire that, while thc great
boon of" political freedom ia acquired by the
Spanish people, tho still greater blessing ot
personal freedom at the same time be concod d
to the slave population in Cuba and Po:to
Rico. Such an act, the committee think, would
ennoble tho new itovernmont, and not only ex?
alt it in the estimation of the people of Eng?
land and France, but would bring Spain into
sympathy with tho other leading nations of the
civilized world; it would also, in all probabili?
ty, stimulate Portugal and Brazil to follow so
great an example.
A COLORED MAN RECEIVES FORTY ACRES OF

I?-THE GREAT MEDICAL MISTAKE OF
former days was an utter neglect of sanitary precau?
tions. No efficient means were adopted for the pre?
vention of si.-knoss. Sewerage was unknown in
cities; drainage was rarely attempted in tho country.
Heaps of offal were left to rot in the public streets,
-nd domestic cleanliness, the great antidoto to fe?
brile diseases, was sadly neglected. It is not so now.
Wise laws, philanthropic institutions, and a vigilant
sanitary police, have, to a great extent, remedied thc
evil. Nor is this all. Preventive medication has
helped materially to lesson the rates of mortality. It
a hot too much to say that tens of thousands escape
sickness in unhealthy season* in consequence of hav?
ing invigorate 1 their systems in advance by a course
of HOSTETIER'S STOMACH BITTERS. Inispure
and powerlul vegetable tonic and alterative compris?
es the extracts and essences of a variety of roots and
herbs renowned for tbeir strengthening, soothing,
vitalizing and purifying properties. These medici?
nal agents arc iucorporated with a spirit absolutely
free from thc acrid poison which defiles, more or
less, all thc liquors or commerce, and their effect is
dieu -ed through the whole frame by this active, yet
harmless stimulant. The result is such a condition
of the system as renders it ail but impervious to tho
exterior causes of dis ease, such as dimp, fog, sudden
alternations of tcmpcrture, ?cc. Strength, and the
perfect regularity of all the functions of the body,
are the best safeguards against atmospheric poison
and the effects of unwholesome water, and HOTEi'
TER'S BITTERS aie tho best strengthening and reg?
ulating medicine at present known. For dyspepsia
and biliousness they are a specific absolute.
