to offer the farmfolk the necessary implements
of industry, at first cost ; and not these alone,
bot the credit which enables the people to get
them. The latter have from tbree to five years

five times what it should be if tho capital had
been increased in a legitimate manner to cover
the expenso of construction and the absorption
of other lines. Four times the stock has been
docbled withont any pretence of value to show

population for this area of country-as largo as
all New England and Now York aud Pennsylva?

enough to sustain a population of 30,000,000.
It would make a large size European Kingdom.
The State will have 13,000,000 bushels of wheat
to spare, which will bring in from $18,000,000
to $20,000,000. Tho wcol-clip is larger than
ever before. The vintage promises to be the

the day. The Slato has just bsgun its net-work
of railroads, soon to bo connected by thc long
spider thread across the continent.
WEDNESDAY MOEN LNG, DECEMBER 30, 18#t.
The Cotton Claims.
We have all heard of the famous war?
horse killed in the Continental service,
whose high-sounding name and speed and
bottom were dinned in tho ears of Congress,
nntil the great grand-child of the bold rider
received an appropriation to compensate
him for the loss his venerable ancestor had
sustained in the servioe of an ungrateful
country. It seems that it is intended to pursue
this putting-ofF policy in regard to the cot?
ton claims, and unless the Southern mem?
bers of Congress will take up the cudgels
in behalf of their afflicted constituents, the
hard cash for the cotton seized by the Fed?
eral Government at the close of the late
war, is not likely to be paid over to any?
thing nearer than the third or fourth gen?
eration of those to whom it is due. In this
way, these unfortunates may live for pos?
terity, if even they starve for themselves.
It is true that the amount of compensa?
tion for cotton claimed by citizens of South
Carolina is not remarkably large, but what?
ever it is, it would be of benefit to thc
claimants andt o this State, in which it would
be spent; and it is not pleasant to feel that
the original 6um, by thc attrition of law?
yers, agents and clerks, is every day grow?
ing uncomfortably less. Nor is there any
good reason why the money should not be
promptly paid. The fact that the govern?
ment did seize the cotton is proved by the
records at Washington, which also show
that the government has the money pro?
duced by its sale. And yet when a claim?
ant does establish his claim and obtains a
judgment, he finds that a large percentage is
deducted to defray the expenses cf the Court
of Claims. In plain English, the ofBcers i
of the government make use of every twist
md turu of the law to avf"d-Pft?iPE lne
money, and wnen they are compelled to pay
the claim, make the claimant pay the piper.
There is a modest cheating game, prac?
ticed by acute boys, in even Buch a moral i
place as Charleston, whose foundation is
this broad prinoiple: '"Heads I win; tails
"you lose." This little game is being played
by the Court of Claims. Evidence is re- '
quired to be taken over and over again.
The claimant is bumped from pillar to post,
ind back from post to pillar. And if he 1
Joes obtain a judgment, the treasury Bet
isido the decision of the court and pay just
is much or as little as they please. j
It is time that some keen and sagacious j
member of Congress should take this mat?
ter in hand, and we trust that the Southern 1
representatives, living amid all the great ,
glories of Washington, will not neglect the
opportunity of speaking frankly and boldly
upon this question of dollars and cents.
What the cotton claimants want is a quick ,
and cheap judgment, and a prompt .payment !
of the money if the claimants win the day.
They grumble not leud but deep, and ask
that Congress will resume its delegated
functions at once, if the Court of Claims
will Bot mend thc errors of its way. 1
The South does not make many drafts
upon the Federal treasury. Rings and
combinations are not our forte. But, by
way of upholding the credit of the govern?
ment, aud of proving that it is willing to '.
render unto the South a little of what
belongs to Southern people, Congress
should, without delay, provide for tho set?
tlement of all lawful claims against the I
General Government. What we ask is just
and fair; if it were not, our prayer m'glit
more read ily be granted.
ISAIAH; with Notes Critical, Explanatory and i
Practical. Cosigned for boin' Pastors and
People. By Rev. Henry Cowies, D. D. New
York : D. Apploton & Co. 1809.
Thia commentary has its good points. It
is plain and-practical-more convenient for
use and not a wv;t drier than the weary
and shapeless comnKntary 0f Alexander
more evangelical and j-opular than thc
learned notes of Henderson. luis brief,
the author usually contenting himself- with
a statement of his own opinions, wilhouv
reference te those of other?, and dwelling
at length upon the texts only to which a
theological interest attaches. The ordi?
nary reader will find a considerable amount
of information in the volume, and will
probably prize its interpretations the more
on account of the homilclical addresses
scattered among them. To tho scholar it i
will prove well-nigh worthless; ue must
have more than ordinary nerve if bc can
endure its superficial criticism?, its cant
phrases, and its slovenly English. In these
.spects the volume stands without a rival
in contemporary religious literature, unless,
indeed, that honor is divided by Dr. Cowies'
previous commentaries. Tho greatest poet
and prophet of antiquity is stripped of his
singing robes of beauty and glory, and
here appears disguised ia butternut from :
head to foot.

This volume, which probably, if wc may
judge from its mechanical beauty, was in?
tended as a gift for Christmas, contains
about one hundred and fifty sprightly ant
glowing pens?es from Spurgeon's sermone.
They are charged with the peculiar excel?
lencies and eccentricities characteristic
the great popular preacher. He writes
the old-fashioned English of the Bible ant
the elder Puritans, with manifold illustra?
tions and fervid appeals to the Christian
consciousness after the manner of "Ancient
"Brooks." The collector has here given
samples from Spurgeon's finest sheaves.

OFI'ICE OF UDOLPHO WOLFE,
Sole Imp?t ter of the Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps,

NEW YOUK, November 3. 1868.
To thc People of the Soul horn States :
WHEN THE PURE MEDIC IN \L EESTOTUT]
now so widely known as WOLFE'S JjCHlEI
SCHNAPPS, was in roduced into tbe^rld ui
tho endorsement of four thousand leading mern
Ot the medical protession some twenty years agc
propiietor was well aware that it could not wi
escapo the penalty attached to all new and us
preparations. Ho, therefore, endeavored to inve
with strongest possible eafeauard against com
feiter?, and to render nU attempts to pirate it i
cult and dangerous. It wa? submitted to at-.
guiahed chemists for analysis, and pronounced
them the purest spirit over manufactured. Its i
ty and properties having been thus ascertained, E
liles of the article were forwarded to ton thous
physicians, including all the leading practitioner
the United States, for purposes of experiment,
circular, requesting a trial of the preparation an
report of the result, accompanied each specim
Four thousand of the most eminent medical me)
tho Union promptly responded. Their opioionf
thc article were unanimously favorable. Sue
preparation, they said, had long been wanted
the protession, as uo reliance could be placod on
ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which ^
more or less adulterated, and therefore unfit
medical purposes. The peculiar excellence I
strength of thc oi of juniper, which formed on
tho principal ingredients of tho Schnapps, toget
with an unalloyed character of the alcoholic
ment, givo it, in the estimation of tho faculty
marked superiority over every other diffusive s?t
lant as a diurotic, tonic and restorative.
These satisfactory credentials from profossiu
men of tho highest rank were published in a c
densed form, and enclosed with each bottle of
Schnapps, as one of the guarantees of its genui
ne?s. Other precautions against fraud wero i
adopted ; a patent was obtained for the article,
label was copyrighted, a/ac simile of tho propriotc
autograph signature wa* attached to each label a
cover, his name aud thatof the preparation were c
bossed on the bottles, and the corks were sealed w
bis private seal. No articlo had over been sold
this country under tho name of Schnapps prior
the introduction of Wolfe's Schiedam Aroma
Schnapps, In 1851; and tho label was deposited,
his trade mark, in the United States District Co
for tho Southern District of New York during tl
It might be supposed by persons una-quaint
with tho ? iring character of thc pirates who pi
upon the reputation ot honorable merchants by voi
lng deleterious trash under their name, that tho pi
teclions so carefully thrown around tho30 Schnar
would havo precluded tho introductions and sale
counterfeits. Tbcy seem, however, only to ha
shmulalod the rapacity of impostor*. The tro
mark of th; proprietor has been stolen; the indon
meut which hi? Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps alo
received from tho medical profession has be
claimed by mendacious humbugs; his labels n:
bottles havo been imilated, his advertisements pai
phrased, his circulars copied, and worso thau a
dishonorable retailers, after disposing of thc genui
contents of his bottles, have filled them up wi
common gin, tho most deleterious of all liquors, ai
thus raado his name aud brjnd a cover tor poison.
Tho public, the medical profession and tbs trie
for whom tho Schiedam Aromarlo schnapps is in
scribed as a remedy, arc equally iu.crestc : with ll
proprietor in thedetcclioa aud supprcssiou of tho
nciarious piaclicts. The gpim'ue article, mar.uia
lured R? the establishment of tho undesigned
Schiedam, Holland, is distilled fro n a barley of il
finest quality, and flavored with an essential extra
of tho berry of the Italian jut.lpc-, of unequalled p
ri ty. By a process unknown in the preparation
any other liquor, it la lrecd from every acriniouioi
