-Speaking of steam as a motive power on
street railroads, a New York letter says: "It
costs the Third Avenue Railroad Company over
a million dollars a yeur to work their line.
They run two hundred cars, requiring them to
keep on hand about eighteen hundred horses,
and tho expense of running each caris about
sixteen dollars a day. They are now consider?
ing a proposition which, if they accept it, wiil
enable them to run each car for five Dr six dol?

meaos of supplying steam pawer to street cars
in such a way that their will neither be smoke
nor sparks, nor more noiso than is made by a
sewing machine. The discovery has been
tested in Detroit, and found to wo:k well, and
it will probably be introduced on our city
railroads. Besides Ita cheapness it offers the
advantage of heating tho cara by steam pipes
in cold weather, an advantage that must
be appreciated by all who stamp the toes out
of their boots in street care, in vain attempts
to keep out the froBt. The street railway sys?
tem in New York needs a great deal of improve?
ment, and the introduction of steam as a mo?
tive power might be a good beginuing. Tho
horses might shy at it at first, and run away
and kill people, and the boilere might blot" up,
now and then, aud kill more people; but what
:s this consideration to going along fast and
being comfortable ? especially in a city that
believes in killiug people as New York does."

CASH ts ADVANCE.-On and after this day,
the payment of subscriptions in advance by
all the subscribers of THE NEWS will be rigidly
enforced, and the paper will not bo sent to any
one unless it has been paid for. To this rule
there will be no exception.
Persons whose stay in the city is to be short,
or who for any other reason may not be dis?
posed to pay the subscription in advance, can
avail themselves of our weekly delivery and
collection system, and receive the paper at the
rate of fifteen cents a week.
Our Municipal Affairs.
Mayor Clark presented to the City Coun?
cil yesterday a paper in which he marks
out the policy which, in his opinion, should
control our Municipal affairs, and makes
various suggestions which are expected tc
have the effect of improving the financial
condition of the city. The value of these
suggestions will, of course, mainly depend
on the manner in which they are carried
into effect; but it is proper to consider at
once the general outlines of the scheme of
retrenchment, improvement and reform.
In this city we are not accustomed to sud?
den and violent changes, and, although we
have passed through a war of gigantic pro?
portions, and an armed peace which over?
turned nearly all that stood erect when the
clash of arms was hushed, the whole frame?
work of our Municipal administration is
the same that it was eighty years ago.
There have been changes and modifications,
it is true: but the organic law of the city
has not been substantially changed since
it was formed in 17S3. It is evident, then,
that changing times and changing circum?
stances have made necessary more than one
amendment of the city charter, and when
tho proper time comes we shall be prepared
to define what modifications are most re?
quired. In the meanwhile, it may be Baid
that the Mayor should undoubtedly be
nothing more than an executive officer with?
out a vote in Council. This chango must
be made at the first opportunity.
We concur with Mayor Clark in the opin?
ion that it is of the first importance that
the city should meet promptly and punctu?
ally the interest upon its obligations, and
we sincerely hope that the interest on the
city debt may be paid on and after April next.
This would be of vaut benefit to the whole
oity, as well as those most directly inter?
ested. The estimated expenditures for the
year ending January, 1871, show a flat?
tering reduction from the estimates of
the current year. A saving of one
hundred and fifty thousand dollars is,
in this way, expected to be made;
while fifty thousand dollars of borrowed
money will be paid, the interest maturing
after January 1 be met, and sundry sub?
stantial improvements be carried out.
A ohange in the system of assessment
may probably be made with advantage, and
although the city may not call loudly for a
new assessment, the citizens do desire that
taxation may be equitably distributed, and
that every kind of property shall pay its
quota to the common fund. No change how?
ever, could be made in time to affect the
taxation for the year beginning January,
We think that the Mayor is mistaken in his
estimate of the value of the landed estate in
this city of the South Carolina Railroad Com?
pany, and we do not see how the city can tax
property which is by charter exempt from
taxation. This matter, however, could
easily be determined by the legal adviser
of Council. If the action of the railroad
company is "in accordance with laws," no
legislation can constitutionally deprive them
of a privilege which is made perpetual.
The consolidation of the two city hospi?
tals, if it can be done without affecting the
value of those institutions, is certainly ad?
visable. This matter should be considered
at an early day. We believe with Mayor
Clark, that the remarkably healthy condi?
tion of the city during the year is mainly
due to the Health Department, and hope
that it will be maintained in all its vigor?
The recommendations of the Mayor in
regard to the House of Correction, the mar?
kets, the police or Mayor's Court, salaries,
the city buildings, the city printing, the
tidal drains, and the plank and shell roads,
are generally prudent and sensible; but we
are not disposed, with the information be?
fore us, to advise that every poor woman
who is unable to earn bread for her family
should be forced into the Alms House or
allowed to starve.
The police can, we believe, be reduced in
numbers, without any injury to the efficiency
of the force or to the city. We have, it
seems, more officers than we need, and two
horses, to be used for giving alarms, ought
to be enou?. ?.
We are well satisfied that it is cheapest
in the end to do the eily work substantially
and well. Much of the work done on the
streets during the last twelve months has
been of a lasting and durable character,
and it has cost less money than the same
work ?id under the old system.
Lighting the streets is an expensive mat?
ter. If the cost can be lessened, so much
The Fire Department it is"" better to
leave untouched. It is a volunteer organ
ization, and perhaps the most efficient one,
paid or unpaid, in the whole country. We
are opposed to any meddling with the Fire
Department of Charleston upon any pretext
We are constrained to believe that some
changes may be made, with advantage, in
the management of the Orphan House; and
we are pleased that the Mayor directs
attention to the manner in which the Sisters
of Mercy conduct their invaluable institu?
tion for orpban children. The City Orphan
House is too costly for the length of the
Municipal purse, and we think that the ex?
penses could be cut down without interfer?
ing with the noble purposes for which it
The Fire Loan ordinance may, it seems,
be amended with advantage. It is certainly
important to build up our waste places as
rapidly as possible. Of other prospective
improvements suggested we are not ready
to speak, but there can be no objection to
any public work which will do much good
at a small expense.
We have touched but briefly upon the
many suggestions made by the Mayor, and
repeat that the scheme, as a whole, meets
with our approval. Its success must, how?
ever, depend upon the ordinances which
are to give it effect, and upon the diligence
and fidelity with which they are executed.
Mayor Clark writes very much to the point,
and has, we believe, laid down practical
principles which will, in time and with
proper care, lessen taxation, encourage
trade, and place our Municipal credit be?
yond a shadow of reproach. These happy
results cannot be reached in a day, but the
first great step has been accomplished in
making public a programme, by adhering
to the general plan of which they may cer?
tainly be attained.
A VAHisTT of cotton, called lace cotton, is
beiDg introduced in some parts of Texas, and
is likely to he extensively raised. It is to bc
supoiior to any other variety for poor soil or
uplands, having a strong, healthy growth and
yielding heavily. Its strength is equal to a
strain of seven and a half pounds to each
thread, while a similar thread of tho best
American cotton will lift only five pounds.
Tboie who.havo examined it say that it re?
sembles Egyptian cotton, which is worth in
England a quarter more than American. Good
results are anticipated from a cultivation of
this variety of cotton. If it is successful it
may quito generally supersede the poorer qual?
ities, and largoly increase thc income ot tho
THE COMMISSIONEE of Agriculture reports
very favorably of all oar harvests, especially
those of thc South, which is recover?
ing in a remarkable degree some of ils former
conditions. The present yield of cotton there
is as great as that ol the year 1850 and about half
tho amount of the extraordinary products of
1859 and 1800. Tho receipts in cash for tho
year 18G7 were larger iu figures than those of
1859-though of coarse allowance must bc
made for the different values o? the dollar.
In tte last two years thc product in sugar has
boen doubled, and rice cultivation is thriving
in nearly the srme proportion. Nature is still
tbc same in thc South, Mid ail her elements of
plenty and prosperity are as numerous and
flourishing as ever.
SOMEBODY wrote to Bagby, ono of the bright?
est wits of thc Old Dominion, and editor of the
Native Virginian, as follows:
"By tho way, what is to become of the la?
dies and gentlemen of Virginia, born to afflu?
ence, with rcfiucd tastes, but now bereft of
means? 1 wish you would treat the subject,
as you can so well, in your paper."
To which ho makes pointed answer in this
wise : "There is but ono way to treat tho sub?
ject. We know a young gentleman in whose
"veins tho best blood of Virginia and South
"Carolina is mingled. He was a good soldier,
"for he loves war and hates farming. On the
"hottest days in summer, wo have seen bim,
"hoe in hand, sleeves rolled up, arms bare io
"the elbow, working like a steam engine from
"dawn until dark. This man, by pluck, by
"industry, and by prudonce will win back what
"his fathers won before him by means of tho
"same qualities. Not the pride of race, but
"the strength of blood, will make him a mas
"ter again. Such a man will not bo kept down.
"As for those Virginia ladies and gentlemen
"who will not stoop to conquer, (thatlact alone
"throws a doubt on thc purity of thoir blood,)
"they will live and die miserably."
TUE XEWsparens are begining to growl at thc
appropriation of the enormous sums annually
voted by Congress fur keeping our coastwise
forts in repair, when it is already demonstrated
that nono of them can stand before thc fire of
tho heavy guns that may be floated within
range of tbom m front. Earthworks aro proved
to bc moro effective as defences than masonry.
The amazing improvements that have been
made of late, and with such rapidity, in war
projectiles, united to tho facilities for moving
thc eame to any desired point by steam power,
and thc still farther advantage to tho assailaut
of protection !?y iron mail for his ships, have
wrought a complete revolution in the science
of coastwise defence, and render it necessary
to begin the work almost de novo. The moni?
tor can with ease bring up its twenty inch gun
ond break the most massive masonry into
crumls. Oo the other baud, no gun has yet
been invented powerful enough in any respect
to keep these monitors beyond range ot mis?
chief, nor has any wall been consiructed that
is able to resist the battering force ot the huge
midern gun. Ia view of these undeniable
facts, rendering it necessary to prepare to
meet au enemy's monitors with guns afloat
instead of ashore, it is urged that tho further

OFfICE OF TJDOLPHO WOLFE. 1
Sol? Imp?t ter of the Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps, \
No 32 Beaver-street. ?
NEW Tons, November 3. 1868. J
To thc People of tnc Southern States :
WHEN THE PURE MEDICINAL RESTORATIVE,
now so widely known os WOLFE'S SCHIEDAM
SCHNAPP?, wes introduced into thc world under
tbe endorsement of four thousand leading members
of the medical protession some twenty years ago, tts
proprietor was well aware that lt could not wholly
escape the penalty attached to all new and useful
preparations. He, therefore, endeavored to invest it
with strongest possible safeguard against counter?
feiters, and to render all attempts to pirate it diffi?
cult and dangerous. It was submitted to distin?
guished chemists for analysis, and pronounced by
them the purest spirit ever manufactured. Its puri?
ty and properties having been thus ascertained, sam?
ples of the article were forwarded to ten thousand
physicians, including all the leading practitioners in
the United States, for purposes ot experiment. A
circular, requesting a trial of the preparation and a
report of the result, accompanied each specimen.
Four thousand of the wost eminent medical men ia
the Union promptly responded. Their opinions of
thc article were unanimously favorable. Such a
preparation, they Faid, had lone been wanted by
the profession, as m r?ionco could be placed on the
ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which were
more or less adulterated, and therefore unfit for
medical purposes. The peculiar excellence and
strength of the oi of juniper, wnich rbrmed one of
the principal ingredients of the Schnapps, together
with an unalloyed iharacter of the alcoholic cle?
ment. give it, in the estimation of the faculty, a
marked superiority over every other diffusive stimu?
lant as a diuretic, tonic and restorative.
These satisfactory credentials from professional
men of the highest rank were published in a con?
densed form, and enclosed with eoch bottle of the
Schnapps, as one of the guarantees of its genuine?
ness. Other precautions against fraud were also
adopted ; a patent was obtained for the article, the
label was copyrighted, a Jae simile of the proprietor's
autograph signature was attached to each '.abel and
cover, his name and that of the prcparatira were em?
bossed on the bottles, and the ...irks were sealed with
his private seal. No article had ever been sold in
this country under the nome of Schnapps prior to
the introduction of Wolfo's Schiedam Aromatic
Schnapps, in 1851 ; and thc label was deposited, as
his trade mark, in the United States District Court
for the Southern District of New York during that
It might bo supposed by persons una quainied
with the d iring character of the piratos who prey
upon thc reputation of honorable merchants by vend?
ing deleterious trash under their came, that he pro?
tections so carefully thrown around these Schnapps
would have precluded tho introductions and sale of
counterfeits. They seem, however, only to novo
stimulated tho rapacity of impostors. Thc trade
mark ot th? proprietor has been stolen; the indorse?
ment which his Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps alone
received from tho medical profession has been
claimed by mendacious humbugs; his labels and
bottles have been iui(atct). his advertisements para?
phrased, his circulars copied, and worso thou oil,
dishonorable retailers, ofter disposing of the genuine
contents ol' his boUles, have filled them up witta
common gin, tho most deleterious of all liquors, and
thus made his name and br ind a cover for poisou.
The public, thc medical profession and thc sick,
for whom thc Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps is pre?
scribed as a remedy, are equally interestc ' with the
proprietor iu thc detection and suppression Ol* these
nefarious ptactices. Thc genuine article, niauuiac
tured at the establishment of the undersigned in
Schiedam, Holland, :s distilled from a barley of the
finest quality, aud flavored with au essential extract
ol'tho berry of thc Italian juuipc*, of unequalled pu?
rity. By a process unknown in the preparation of
any other liquor, it ls treed from every acrimonious
and corro-ivc clement.
Complaints have lieon received from thc leading
physicians and famines in thc Southern States of
the sale of cheap imitations of thc Schiedam Aro?
matic Schnapps in those markets; and travellers,
who are iu the habit ot using it a? an antidote to thc
bauend influence of unwholesome river water, tes
tify that cheap gin, put up in Schiedam bottles, is
frequently palmed oil upon iho unwary. The
agent- oi the undersigned havo been requested to
institute inquiries on the subject, and to forward to
him the names of such parties as they may ascer?
tain to be engnged iu the atrocious system of decep?
tion. lu conclusion, thc undorsigned would say that
he has produced, from under thc hands of thc niost
dlstinguirhca men of science in America, proofs un
answerable of the parity and modicincl excel?
lence of tho Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps ; that
he has expended unny thousand dollars in sur?
rounding it with guarantees and safeguards, which
ho designed should protect thc public and himself
against fraudulent imitations; that he has shown it
to bo thc only liquor in tho world that can be uni?
formly depended upon as unadulterated; that he has
challenged investigation, analysis, comparison and
experiment in all Its forms; and from every ordeal
thc preparation whLhbcars his Dame, teal and trade
mark, has come off triumphant. He, therefore, feels
it a duly he owes to his lellow-citiz -ns generally, to
thc medical profession and tho sick, to denounce
and expose tho charlatans who countcrleit these evi?
dencies of identity, and he calls upon the press and
the public to aid him in his efforts to remedy so great
The following letters and certificates from the
leading physicians and chemists of this city will
prove to the reader that all goods sold by tbe uuder
signe J are all that they aro repre CDted to be.
I feel bound to say, that I regard your Schnapps
as being in every respect pre-eminently pure, and
deserving ot medical patronage. At ull events, it is
the purest possible article of Holland Gin. hereto?
fore unobtainable, aud as such may be safely pre?
scribed by physicians.
