HAVANA, January 21.-At a meeting of lead?

This reeders it necessary for Spaniards to

A letter from the American Consul at Nnevi

fended by Colonel Mena with three thousand
insn. Ample preparations bad been made to
receive the insurgents. The city was in a
thorough condition of defence.
In view of the intelligence from Bayamo, it
was doubtful whether Quesada would persist in
his movement. The Spanish commander was
confident he could repulse any attack.
Owing to a personal difficulty between Gen?

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
OBAKOEBUBO, S. C., January 21.-After an
arduous session, thc court finished the docket
to-day. Judge Carpenter has left a most favor?
able impression upon the minds of every one
whose privilege it was to attend the sitting.
This being sentence day, an unusual interest
was manifested by many of both races. The
prisoners, convicted severally of grand and
petty larceny, burglary and rescuing prisoners,
were in turo arraigned, for sentence. His Hon?
or, with eloquent fervor, dwelt upon the crines
which demanded punishment at the hands of
justice, reviewed the condition of society it
lawlessness went unwhipt, painted the contrast
between prosperity, peace and happiness inci?
dent to virtue and obedience to law, and mise?
ry, beggary and degradation consequent to
crime; then with solemn language he passed
sentence upon each as his crime merited. All
present were satisfied, and more so were the
unfortunate culprits, that crime must bo sup?
pressed in the judgment of this court. They
(rho foolishly regarded freedom as license, and
bad been the dupes of bad advisors, and with
violence defied the dignity of the common?
wealth, received their doom with the convic?
tion that "tho way of the transgessor is hard."
all the cases were against colored people, and
it is due to the mass of that race to say, that
they deprecate, while they pity, the conduct
of their fellows. The moral effect of this day's
proceedings will have a happy influe ice.
TUE STATE PRESS.
TEE THtKD DI8T2ICT.
Tho Nawberry Herald publishes extracts
rom the protest of Judgo Hogc, the defeated
?andidato for Congress from the Thud District
>f this State, and says:
We do not propose to enter into a refutation
>f the charges against the good people of New
>erry, contained in this protest. But we can
?ot allow them to go forth without an unquali
ied denial of these truths from beginning to
md. The last election in Newberry passed off
is quietly as anv that was ever held within its
?mi ts. The good order that prevailed through
rat the district was tho subject, not only'of
reneral remark, but of congratulation. We
10 not pretend to deny that a large number o'
aegro voters remained away from the p JIIB,
trat not for the reason assigned by Solomon L.
Soge. It was net violence, nor threats of vio?
lence, that kept them away. It was the result
if a proper view of what their true interests
required them to do.
THE PROSPECTS AHEAD.
The Marion Crescent urges the farmers and
planters to secure an ample supply of gram;
f the cotton crop is short, the pnce will make
ip the deficiency, and if tho prices should be
ow, with well-filled barns there will be no
uiuse for fear. The Crescent says:
From the immense quantity of fertilizers
kbout our depot, we augur that our thrifty
banters are preparing largely for the coming
;rop. We tear that much of these prepara
:ions have boen stimulated by the hi? li price of
he crop of 18C8, and ns faithful chroniclers we
ivould not bo discharging our d%ties without
lounding a note of warning to those who think
hat their fortunes he in a large cotton crop
Look at the year 1867; then cotton in Janu
iry and February ranged as now, from 25c to
15c. What was the result ? Every one who
:ould raise money to get credit rushed into a
arge colton c op, those having nothing but
sredit paying high pi ices tor provisions at tab?
lions rates of interest, as well as high prices
:'orlabor. Let tho experience of the talland
sinter ot 18G7-H answor. Tho crop was forced
nto market carly through the stress of liens
br advances, bringing net from 9 to 12 couts,
md the man who went on credit found himself
leeper in debt, aud he who worked on the cash
iriuciple at tho end of the year with his pockets
:mpty, and not provisions enough to get
brough halt the year.
This lesson taught caution, and in 1868 the
irovision crop was looked after, while cotton
vas the auxiliary crop, the effect of this was
ligher prices aud more money for five bales
han for ten to fifteen last year.
THE FD TUBE OF UNION.
The Union Times is encouraged by the pur
hase of water power made by Senator
Jprague, and says:

[FROM 00B OWN CORRESPONDENT. ]
COLUMBIA, S. C., January 21.-Toe argu?
ment in the mandamus case, on the motion
for a rule upon the Acting Board of Aldermen,
will be argued before tho Supremo Court to
morrow by General James Conner for the
Board of Aldermen, and by Messrs. Corbin
and Chamberlain for the claimants.
Notice of a motion was given in the Supreme
Court to-day by General James Conner for a
prohibition to airest proceedings in the case of
thc South Carolina Bailroad vs. Columbia and
Augusta Bailroad until tho respectivo rights
of the two companies shall have been heard
and determined by the Supreme Court. Some
day next week will, doubtless, bc fixed for
hearing the argument.
The Governor gave a public reception this
evening to the various State officers and mem?
bers or the Legislature.
Tho debates in both branches of thc General
Assembly are daily growing warmer and more
interesting, but rather too prolific for the good
of the Treasury Department. As a general
thing, however, there i3 ovident a laudable
desire on the part of members hf both houses
that the important measures now np for dis
cussion shall receive full consideration before
becoming laws. Such to-day was the subject
under consideration in the House, namely, the
bill to alter and amend tho criminal law. Tho
great question was on the abolition of capital
punishment in all cases except of wilful murder.
The general sentiment is undoubted!; in favor
of tho proposition as in keeping with the
progress of the ago. It un y be curious I '
to observe that the stronges. opposition comes
from those to the manor born, while its warm
est advocates aro those white and colored who
li ave but recently made South Carolina their
home. The bill, it will be remembered, origin?
ated in the Senate, whore it was introduced by f
Mr. Corbin. lu that body the most active and f I
determined opponent)) were Ruinoy, of George?
town; Mash, of Richland; Hayne, of Marion.
The two former made tho moet strenuous
efforts to except the crime of rape from the
operations of the bill, while in the House Dc

sition irom which unconsciousness or death
The debate on this proposed amendment
continued in the House to-day up to thc hour
The bill introduced in the House by Smalls,
of Beaufort, entitled "A bill to entoreti tho
Civil Bights bill of tho United States
Congress," is almost identically tho anti?
discrimination bill of the special session which
passed the House at that timo, but was defeat'

Po James Heywood Whitehead, Esq , South?

MY DEAB ^LB-I have much pleasure in tr ana
nit ting to you herewith the resolutions of the
it. George's Society of Charleston, over which
i have tho honor to preside Theso r?solu
ions were proposed and unanimously adopted
X a mooting of tho society hold on the 23d
nat., il being tho first meeting for tho trans?
ition of business that had been held sinco
Hr. Lawton had placed in my hands your much
'alued present and kind accompanying note.
Considering the interest you have manifest
id for our association in presenting the mcm
)ers with a St. George's Cross, and in exprcss
ng the wish that that symb >1 may "servo to
lemont tho feeling of mutual association and
wotection," I may, perhaps, bo permitted to
ay boforo you tho condition of tho society,
md mention the class of persons among whom
t bestows its bounty.
At tho breaking out nf tho lato desolating
rar this society had amassed about $12,000,
vhich were invested in State and city bonds,
md in tho stock of various banks. That
.mount formed two funds, one of about $10,000,
he income of ? hich was devoted to the pay
ncut of sundry annuities to the widows of
leccased members, to accumulation, and to
;indred otLer claims upou its general benevo
en e. Tho inc'.mo uf tho other fund, of about
:2000, VT ? -pplieablo to the relief of transient
Jnglishinen in distress. The first fund was
ilniost wholly lost by the rosult of thc war,
vhich rendered insolvent every bankin? insti
ution in tho Southern country. The latter
nnd, consisting ot Slate and city bonds, still
las existence ; but as neither tho State nor
ity have paid interest upon thoir indebted
loss sineo tho war, the society is without its 1
tsual income, and unable to liston to tho many
ppltcations made for relief.
This last is a matter which, I think, may very
iroperly bc brought to tho notice of the benev- '
ilent in England, for tho charity tho society '
icsto ws is not for Iho relief of a foreign popul?
ation, who aro free to apply to institutions ex
sting in their own country, but for the relief !
if Englishmen who, from no wilful fault of their 1
iwn, are homeless and penniless strangers, 1
rithout employment, and unable to return to 1
heir own country. By a gratuity of a few dol?
are to such, the society has often raisod wor
hy persons from the depths of misery and dc- 1
pah; and it becomes a question whether the 1
ociety may not well ask the benevolent in Eng- 1
ind to aid them in their efforts to rcliove tho
English poor in Charleston. Mr. Christopher 1
Llkmson, of Aybruth, in Liverpool, a member 1
I the society, will, I am sure, listen to any
uugestiun you may bc pleased to offer flat 1
aay eventually improvo tho society's means '

3hare of tho crop is etill undecided. Wages
would be the best mole of compensation IU
the interest of the planter, if the negro would
work, and the negro would be bettor satisfied
and would sooner learn the value of money
and of economy. Bat the share in the crop',
dividing the risk and making the laborer's
profit dependent on his industry, is found to
be the safest And best.
An immense area will Lo planted in cotton
next year. The incentive of twenty-five cents
per pound ia irresistible. Every one is going
to plant who has an acre of ground, and every
one seems confident that "cotton will never
fall again below twenty cents." I am much
afraid that provision crops will be neglected,
and that the suffering of 1867 will be experienc?
ed again. But it is idlo to talk or give advice.
"Sell cotton at $100 a bale and buy corn at
seventy-five cents or$l,"is the invariable reply
to the sagest counsel.
The mule drovers, who this timo last year
wero the most disconsolate and disappointed
set of men I ever saw, are now tho most choor
tnl and contented. They have sold their stocks
readily at high prices, and the cry is still they
como. Good medium mules, from five to seven
years old and broke, bring readily from one
hundred and seventy-five dollars lo two hun?
dred dollars. The dealers in fertilizers are
very active. There are hundreds of phos?
phates, and superphosphates, ammoniated
raw bones, and dry bones, and ground bones,
and flour of bones advertised as "tho very best
manure for colton." All sorts of guano, vast?
ly superior to Peruvian, are offered for sale in
evory direction, and tho newspapers are filled
with daming acoounts of the surprising effects
of these stimulants to production.
All this shows prosperity, and promises well,
unless it is overdone. The eagerness to "go
to work and make something is universal.
Arrangements are being made to erect several
cotton and paper mills. The coal mines are
being worked more extensively and more pro?
fita oly than heretofore. Business in the towns
and cities has not been 8.? active since the war
closed. Every one has money excopt the law?
yers and the editors. Bailroad enterprises
aro in every stago of embryo construction,
from the bare project to the advertisement for
proposals to build the first twenty miles. Poli?
ticians alone look gloomy, shake their heads,
and are apprehensive, tho Democrats fearing
that the-Congress will pasa the Edmunds'
bill or something lino it, and tho Bullock
party fearing that Congress "wou't do noth?
MOBALS, MANNER AND MIND.
V Startling Picture of Life In the French
The following article was published in a late
number of tho London Athenoum :
The French will not read their classics. The
young man of the present day has nevor mas?
tered a page of Corneille. I find, for my own
part, that the Babelais is more talked about in
English than in French society. The classic
dramatists are known only so far tts they are
acted; and there are plenty of young gentlemen
on tho Boulevards who shrug their shoulders
at the Theatre Fran?ais, and crack their little
lokes when Racino is on thc stage. They are
Tor Offenbach and Schneider, and aro moro
pleased to get at the scandalous memoirs
ot the Grand Duchesse than they would be to
bear that a couple of new masterpieces by
Moliere had been discovered. Romance fills
the salon, the boudoir, and tho bedroom. The
bridal chamber is the comic scene. The hus?
band is the buffoon. The children are the
privileged and malignant observers of their
mothers' peccadilloes. These are the ingre?
dients which aro served up in a hundred forms,
and Bupply all the reading of the mothers who
are pictured, or the husbands who are tho
habitual subjects of dishonor, and of the lover
who makes his friend's wife his mistress. The
poisonous, pestilent stuff is presented to the
roaders as portraiture of themselves and their
neighbors; and they are far from repudiating
it. Amateur and professional immorality are
tho dishes, in tho preparation of which M.
Aloxttnder Dumas/to ia the Jules Goude of his
epooh-leading a crowd of minor cuds.
Whatever may be isaid of the political time
of Nap deon III, the popular literature of his
day will, it is fondly hoped, be repudiated by
an indignaut pjsterity as almost incredibly
coarse and profligate. It most, however, be
accepted as painting the living manners. Re?
garded as ho ding the mirror up to living na?
ture, does it net explain why it is the learned
salons have passed away-why audiences
laugh instead of hissing when amusing forms
and whims of adultery are set helor them-and
why feminine cheeks do not tame when Mar?
guerite Gauthier talks ? People a suite of
rooms with the creations of your younger Du?
mas, and would you expect to find Montaigne,
Corneille, Rabelais,Moliere and Racino upon the
tables ? You might rather incline to search for
Faublas in a cupboard ?
If not in Paris-scattered in odd nooks and
corners ot France ; living on hermit fare in
petty colleges and seminaries; keeping school,
or eodurins the private tutcr'a fife, or oxile
there is still a goodly public of French scholars
-lovers of the essay, tho philosophical trea?
tise, the scientific speculator, tho historian and
the moralist. This public is the salt of the
Froneh soil. Without lt society would have
the livid hues of death. I warrant that the
publisher of the Almanac of the General Cy?
clopaedia will not sell a copy along the Boule?
vard Malesherbes, save, mayhap, to one letter?
ed Englishman who Uves there; but over the
water, in very dingy professors' apartments,
and among the few students whu mean work, it
will command tho expenditure of a franc. It
is written by serious men for serious meo.
The attempt to produce such a work in theee
days is a most praiseworthy because a most
adventurous one. It will gauge the intellectual
depth of the rising generation, and discover
how many young men theio aro left in Franco
with ideas beyond the Bois, the Cafe Ancl?is,
tho Jockey Ciub, and Mabile for th sir youth,
and the orthodox profligacy of p lite society
tor tboir ru tdd lo lifo.
Henry Fouquicr, in his dialogue on the
Morality of Yesterday and To-Day, says as
"Moi:" "That which enrages me ts to see that
our city has been made into a ville enlrelenue,
whero the vices of the world come to make
themsolve comfortable." And again, contrast?
ing the Mabile of to-day with the Porcl.erons
of Didorot's time, he remarks: "lhat which
saddens mo to-day ia the coolness of your de?
bauchery. It is as regular as your streets and
barracks, with govornors and subjects." The
peep into the picture shops is not without a
reflection across the Chanuol, where, I am
sorry to hear, some shameless beauty is on
ovorybody's hps, and in tho albums of many
who pretend to tho homely virtues.
"Lot us look about us I In the shop win?
dows, next to che portrait of the Pope, we con?
template tho faces of the droUsses whom wo
adore. Hore they are, with dabs of red upon
their hollow cheeks, as boys; legs in the air as
at the balls, to which they attract the foreign?
ors. We enter tho theatres. Wo shall see two
hundred nudo figurantes, with shortest petti?
coats, with false calves, which cheat tho au?
dience as indicating beauties that th? poor
girls do not possess. All this lives I cannot
toll how, and Bleeps I cannot toll whero-but
not ai Fort 1'Evequo, as in our (Diderot's)
lime." Further: "At tho rate wo are going, we
Shall have 'Justino' read to our childron."
He. i ry Fouquior declares French society is
not quito so vicious, ho wo ver, aa most obser?
vers imagine it to be. Education bas s.-road,
it is true; but it is among tho odjrated that
tho stain is deopost. Ho says: .'Circumstan
038 have compelled tho miss of tho nation
which is sound, laborious aud moral-to give
thc wall to a few greedy and vain pleasure
seekers. These are tho folk lo whom atten?
tion ki exclusively given, aud who fill tho
newspapers; and by tucas wo aro all judged."
"Cultivate tho domestic virtues." Charlos
Lamb Write?; "they will brim; you poace at tho
last." Aud, pray, what crop will tho cultiva?
tion of tho vicos" bring? This is the question
which gives bad quartors-of-an-hour to the
sober and lettered Frenchman at this moment.
*r NABBIW ESO.VPE Fitoic SHIPWRECK.-The
stoaniship Columbia, Captain Cs.ru.eig in, which
loft New York on November 28, with a large
and valuable cargo and bcvonty-iivo passen?
gers (sixty-three stcorage and twelve cabin),
exclusivo of tho crew, s semi to have narrowly
escapod foundering, from a cxase similar to
that which lcd to so Jisastrou-i a result in the
rase of thc Hibernia. When seven days at sea,
tho propeller ot tho stoainer bjcamo uaoloss,
owing to thc pin starting out. The capUin,
ou being mido acquainted with the mishap,
directed tho crew to try and raiso tho propel?
ler, and not to inform the passengers or alarm
them. The crew worked incessantly for a day
and a night, but their efforts were unsuccess?
ful, and thc water in the after part of the ship
lose to tho depth of sixteen foot. The cap
tatu, seeing that the Btoamor waa in a disabled
condition,"had tho most valuablo part of the
cargo pu i into small boats, ana noa deter?
mined on directing the passengers to prepare
to abandon the vessel, when as a last resort, a
number of chains were procured, and passen?
gers and crew worked together in lifcing np
the propeller, and tying it in its original posi?
tion. The sails were then set, and the steamer
was worked at the rate of two or three knots
an hour. Signals of distress were unceasingly
made, and sailors took the watch on the top of
the masts on the lookout for passing vessels;
but up to the twelfth day of the voyage no
vessel answered the signals. The passengers
stated that the City of Antwerp passed them
by, but refused to give any assistance. The
provisions, which were only sufficient for an
ordinary fortnight's voyage, began to get
scarce, hut the passengers showed the utmost
fortitude, and were content with half the usual
allowance. The propeller fortnnately kept in
its position, and the captain was enabled, by
the favorable nature of the wind, to steer his
vessel into Queenstown.
