What He thinks of Aiken and its Ad?
The New York Commercial Advertiser, of
Friday, contains a letter from its well known
editor, Mr. Weed, now sojourning in our State.
Writing from Aiken, on the 22d ult., ha says :
We lei t New York in the steamer Champion,
Captain Lockwood, a fortuigbt ago to-day,with
a moderate, bm fair wind, making tho usual
headway from Saturday alternoon until Mon?
day evening, when wo encountered off Pan?
handle Shoals a severo gale from the south?
west, which continued through the night, the
steamer making but twenty milos in twelve
boure. Fortunately wo bad a staunch vessel,
with vigilant and capable officers, and she
reached Chaileston at six o'clock on Tuesday
evening. As wo were coming alongside ot the
dock, with the pass6Ugera on deck waiting for
the gang plank, .Mr. Mooro, who bad been in ex?
cellent health and fine spirits during tho voy?
age, tell suddenly, and before a physician ar?
rived bad expired. Ile was remarking, a few
hours before, that ho had enjoyed uninterrupt?
ed health during his whole lite. To his
daughter (Mrs. Leavict, of Brooklyn), it was a
terrible blow, the suddenness of which affect?
ed all the passengers.
We remained a few days at thc Charleston
Hotel, looking, as far as iny health would per?
mit, through and around thc city. Charleston
is slowly recovering from the desol dine effect
of a foirr years' war, and thc sea .eely less
ruinous consequences ot four moro vears of
political demoralization, social disorder, and
financial depression. But the crisis has passod.
She is recovering, and cannot, with her great
advantages, fail to become again a great com?
mercial emporium. The ordeal, however, is a
severe one. it is impossible, oven while we
remember how lou* a:.'d porsisccntly disloyal
Charle'ton had boen, to remain insensible* to
the destitution and sufferings of her most
wealthy, most distinguished, and in all save
the bor-sios of nullification and secession, most
estimable familia*. Young men of cultivation
and refinement who once supposed that the Di?
vine injunction relating to tho "sweat of tho
brow," was applicable only to tho colored race,
arc now eagerly seeking "empkn mont however
laborious, to maintain themselves, whilo their
mothers and sis I era with equal alacrity avail
themselves of every occupation suitable to
their sex and character. XL o intelligent and
civil conductor of a wu-cot car, i:i which wo
! were riding, is a grandson of tho lato Episco?
pal Bishop Bowen, whose family beloro tho
war was weall by. The faro in the street cars
hero is ton couts, although none of thc routes
exceed two miles and a half. Thc citizens of
Charleston, impoverished as they aro. pay
their ten cents for short ridos choci tully,
while in New York tuero is constant grum?
bling (more in the newspapers than by citi?
zens) at a six ceut larc for four, five, aud six
Tho Chnrloston Hotel is well kept. Wo had
fresh shad for breakfast everv morning, and
although excellent, I would wilfingly exchange
them for tho whito tish. As wo hopo to pass
another week at Charleston, I s ?all say no?
thing n.iw of ?he freedmen, who constitute so
Iarec a portion of its population.
The steamer organizations between New
York, Bicbmond, Charleston, Savannah, and
the various ports in Florida, furnish excellont
aceimmodalions for passengers, and ample
facilities for commerce. Tho intercourse be?
tween Now ?orS and tue cities of tho South is
ficquont and reuular. Tho lines are estab?
lished by Northern capitalises, with thc
Brothers "Lean% Mr. Garrison, Mr. Livings?

and those enterprising Eist River iron work?
ers, Gcorgo Quintard, James Murphy, &c, as
We find in -thc climate of Aiken all tho ad?
vantages we hoped for. In this respect, there
was nothing of exaggeration in thc many favor?
able representations we had heard and read.
In climate, tho January of Aiken resembles the
October of New York-it is dry and clear. Wo
walk morning, afternoon and evening, without
overcoats. Ladies enjoy croquet in costumes
suitablo for May on tho North River. Viol ts
are in full bloom. Now, as heretofore thcru
are many Northern citizens passing the winter
lice, among whom are Hugh Maxwell, Geo.
T. Andrews, of Now York and General Dim .
ick, oMho United States Army. Mr. Maxwell
carno here for the benefit of his own health,
which is fuily re established. Tho son of Mr.
Andrews, who vat: dangerously Ul, is improv?
ing. Mr J. C. Derby, the enterprising New
Yoik publisher, has a largo aud productive
farm, aJjoining thc Village of Aiken. His
peach orchard, tho largest wo had ever seen,
is in tall view fro:n the railway cars. Mrs.
Derby, who called yesterday, says that they
are preparing one hundred, acres for cotton
planting this 6oasou. The Globj Hotel, where
wo lodge, is wellkopt. The walks and drives
I in and about Aiken ?re very pleasant. Tho
woods, they tells us. will soon be beautiful and
fragrant with wild flowors. I enjoy tho reposa
which tho physicians say is essential, with?
drawing my thoughts a3 far as possible lion

In a late letter from Lenoir, Norlh Carolina,
he is "delighted to find tho poaplo of the Stato

appaicut change of view has anything to do
with laud agency speculations 111 which Mr.

FASHIONS FOJi FEBRUARY.
JENNIE JUNE'S MONTHLY BUDGET OF
GOSSIP FOR THE LADIES.
Tbo Model Wife-.1 Nuisance that Men
Like-Velvet Clonks and Far Capes
Antiquated Economy of tho modern
Dress-Fancy Costumes-Fashion and
NEW YORE, January 30.-I have always be?
lieved in model wives. I am a model wife my?
self; that is to say, I do the marketing, mend
the stockings after everybody has gone to
bed, fidget if people don't wipe their feot?n
tho door-mat, feel responsible for tho short?
comings of the cook, and dance attendance on
the baby rather than hoar it cry. But the
fact is the time baa gone by for the exercise
of such negative virtues. They are not appre?
ciated. Husbands hold np the model wife as an
example to tho pretty capricious little darlings
who tyrannize over them, but they would not
exchange them for tho world. The difficulty
is that the model wife is encumbered with her
many excellencies. She expects her husband
to realize tho treasure ho possesses in her,
which ho never does. Ho is willing to eat the
good things which she places upon his table,
but ho never considers her anything more than
a housekeeper, and ho reserves his compli?
ments and tho charm of his conversation for
the pretty useloss wife of his neighbor, who
never made a shirt or a pudding in her life,
and frankly avows her intcution of never inak
ing an effort iu that linc.
VELVET CLOAKS ANT? FOE CAFES.
It is certainly true that modern short walk?
ing suits have revolutionized fashion. A hand?
some fur cape, or a velvet cloak, ouo or the
other, was formerly doernod indispensable to
thc winter attire of a lady, and theil* posses-,
sion was the crown of many-a woman's ambi?
tion. Now, in comparison with handsome,
well-made suits they look antiquated. Cost
is a matter of no consequence. They have
tho appearance of belonging to thc past, and
no ono has tho credit of getting a now one.
Th? short suit is very economical, too economi?
cal to suit the dressmakers, who complain that
it has cut off half their receipts. Several
dre?aes were foimorly required for tho street,
and soon looked worn and shabby, by being
allowed to drag on thc pavement. Now, ono
suit lasts a season, and after that serves a
secondary purpose. Then costly material is
thrown away upon a suit-fine English water?
proof looks about as well as cloth at four or
flvo dollars per yard-winsey nearly as well
as Irish poolin, and poplin as silk and satin.
Real genuino Lyons volvet is tho only fabric,
eveu for suits, that nothing clso can upproarh.
The season of masquerades is approaching
and great inquiry is made for something new
and original in the way of fancy costumes.
Sootch girls, peasant giris, flower girls, vivan?
diers, and thc Ideo are pretty well worn oat; so
also aro Turkish maideus, and the court ladios
of no particular period. The whim of tho mo?
ment is for tho odd and grotesque, fur the
comic and thc revival of nearly forgotten na
tionalitios.ra'hcr than mere elaborate and cost?
ly drosses, and this tendency will, probably,
devolopc somo fresh if not quaint and original
ideas botorc the carnival closes. It is useless
to elc3oribo iu detail character dresses,occausc
few eau make them from mere description, and
none be certain ol their corrcctuess. The bo3t.
plan for a tyro is to select a character with
traditional features easily identitiod, copy
them closely, and tho rest will bc taken for
granted. A good idea has been hit upon for
thc children of " Sorosis,' who aro to havo an
exclusivo masquerading frolic about thc first
of March. It is the embodiment in thoir own
persons of all the traditions of childhood.
Goody Two Shoes, Littlo Red Riding-Hood,

There is so little that is new or interesting
in mero fashion to write about this month, and
a stalo rehash of old and vapid descripci?n is
so entirely prodtlcsd, that I shall mako no
apology for introducing into this letter the fol?
lowing" report read before the last meeting of
tho Woman's Club, in New York, upon
FASHION ANO FREEDOM.
In giviug to thc club tho few thoughts in re?
gard to drets, contained in the following re?
port, tho committee teel that an apology is duo
for tho utter inadequacy of tho treatment of
tho subject. Ina brief "paper, that makes no
pretensions to even tho length or dignity of au
essay, it has hardly been considered p?saibio
to dovclope a central idea, much less presont a
broad aud comprehensivo view <. f tho entire
subj ct. The ladies of Sorosis will, however,
forgive the shortcomings, and take thu hints
for what tboy aro worth.
Tho poi .t in regard to dross to which the
committee wish particularly to call your at?
tention is th.s : the thia dbm to which it sub?
jects us, and from which we havo it entirely
in our power to free ourselves. Thia spirit,
slavery, subjection, or whatever yon choose to
call it, is nut confi'ied to fashion; it controls
almost as arbitrarily those who cotiBidcr them?
selves quito absolvod from ils sway. Fief dom
to dress as they choose has ut vcr been known,
or realized by womeu. Tho Quaker, tor in
stance, frees herself from the tyianny of
French, modes, only to subject her-i If to aie
perpetual dominion ofck?o bonnels, neutral
grays and anuff-co'.orod h.o ?us. The con?
scientious Methodist may admiro and wish to
appreciate some ot the pretty things sho secs,
but would be debarred trom doing so both by
habit and conscioucc. The Bloomerists talk
of freedom in dress, and at tho same
timo subject themselves to strict uniform,
which has neither beauty nor grace, nor univer?
sal appropriateness to recomm nd it. Freedom
cannot exist under thu iron rulo ufau arbitrary
will; andthut is not freedom which only sub?
stitutes one kind of authority fur another. Wo
may be as completely subjects of a prejudice
as ? passion, and the truer and highor inca, as
it seems to us, is to divest ourselves of unrea?
soning adherence to either, and endeavor to
render dress beautiful and harmonious to
thc eye, as well as comfortable, convenient
and protective. Au undue catiinato placod
upon dress subordinates higher faculties to
lower. In a fashionable assouiblago, thc
length of a lady's trail, the quality of her lace,
tho size aud splendor uf her diamonds, aro
taken as tho evidence of her claim to social
consideration and distinction. At what was
Dr. Thrall's establishment iu Leight-etrcet, on
the couti arv, short skirts, trowscrs, han
cropped close, and entire ab.-euce of ornament,
would he admitted as .-Hording equal proofs ot'
But in fact, mere dress of any kind affords
neither cidence or claim lo thc posacseir.u cf
these gonn'nfl qualities, which alone entitle ns
to the esteem and confid.'uoo of eur compeera.
Tho charms whic.i distinguish thu true woman
are somotimes heightened, but eau never ba
entirely concealed by dress, and Should be
veined far above that which only indicates Ibe
accidental possession of wealth or tho rovor-o.
Tho beauty ot I ruth, of purity, ol'110:101, o?
fidelity, to one's ov r tense of right, is beyond
tho ieaeh of salin or velvet, sackcloth or
cropped hair, to n'ake or mar; and this is the
standard by which wo members of Sorosis
mus; j idgc womeu, and not by their dress, L-o
it plain e>r fine.
C/ne ol the first subjects proposed for discus?
sion in the early organization uf tho club was
uaturally this one ol' dress. Good women al
ways feel th'it there ia a reproach in tome way
connected with it, ai.d they wish lo avoid it by
denying themselves and setting a:i example of
thc strictest plainness and simplicity. A'his is
unjust to themselves, ?nd derogatory to thc
common sense and right feeling of others.
There is no reason why a womau should not
dress beautifully aud elegant, it' she can afford
it; and no reason why ail those who uAunot
afford it should take pleasure mit, just as they
would in the sight of a channing pictur.*, ii
pretty landscape, the purple and goldau dyes
of a brilliant sun^ot, and a thousand oilier
agreeable objects (rom wYicb. wo derive pleas?
ure aud satisfaction.
One of the greatest uses of our coming to?
gether is that we le;?ru to placo a true estimate
upon ouch other. I may wear a stout walking
dress if it rain?, or a 'long-trained dross if 1
feel liks it, and it makes not a particle of dif?
ference; you know me and I know you, and wc
think of each, not with reference to our dress,
but in the light of the revelation, which social
interchange of thought and community of feel
i jg bas boen to us of character and cou juct.
Tbis better estimate, this higher standard, we
must extend beyond the club. We must carry
it into the world. Wo must learn to rejoice in
tho cvidenco of other people's possession of
good, whether wo havo it or not. No woman
lives for herself alone. Her beauty, her grace,
her tasto, her' personal possessions become
common property; and shall I not rejoice in
them because she bas the care of them and not
I ? I don't want her to dress in gray or brown,
because grav and brown are the most useful
and serviceable to me. I like her in white, and
scarlet, and gold. I like the shimmer of her
satins, the transparence of her laco, the glit?
ter of her jewels. To aeprive her of them
would bo to deprive me of the pleasure of see?
ing them, of knowing through her that beau?
ty, and grac-?, nnd harmony, and porfeotion
exist. My vision would be bounded by mv
own lead-colored horizon; my selfishness would
pr .-vent me from fitting tho veil and seeing tho
Tho conclusion to which wo arrive, then, in
regard to dress is this, that we need to culti?
vate freedom in dress for ourselves, tolerance
in respect to others, and cease to estimate per?
sons by the mere fashion or cost of their
But what is freedom? rather, what do we
understand by it? Is it freedom for mc or
freedom for all? Is it freedom for those who
love scarlet and gold, as well as those who be?
lieve in gray and brown ? Is it freedom lo
wear any dress, or only a shorf dress ? Is it
freedom to wear a dress? as long as is useful
and beelining, without reference to a change
in the cul of tho sleeves or tho' length of tho
skirt, or freedom to criticiso with severity all
who do not como up or down to our standard
of fitness and harmony ?
I havj heard slnctures and oven watlings
over the contrast exhibited by members of
"Sorosis" at their social gatherings. To mo
tho contrast ia one of thc pleasantest and most
sensible features of these gatherings. 1 Uko
tho state elegance of some, thc gaiety and bril?
liant coloriug of others. lam proud of it-it
shows the growing completeness of our aggre?
gation, and tho varied scenes from which it is
drawn; but there are sonic face? and forms
framed with monastic plainnces that are al?
ways sweet to look upon, and I rejoice that uo
rule of "strict ev ming dress required'1 excludes
them from the enjoyment of social and sen?
Weare not a day ioo soon in taking np a lib?
eral and advanced position upon this subject.
Already warning notes have been struck that
show how httlo reality there is lett of the old
arbitrary systems. . But whil i there ia a great?
er freedom there is also greater uniformity.
The steam npint of tho ago, tho ocean tele?
graph and other agencies, havo brought us
next door to the centres of an. and civilization.

as well as in i ha great capital of tho Wcsterp.

Do wo desire to morlgago ourselves per?
petually in this way ? Would it not bo more

their individuality, their power and their righi
to do as they please m a matter which so ex?
clusively concerns therr own interests, health,
Let us, thon, feel hoe-free to wear whatever
is best suited to our taste, position, moans and

riere. was in the stoamer Vesta; which vessel,
our rea lera will rcmombjr, collided, somo fif?
teen years back, with tho ill-fated steamship
Arctic, in a fog t.ff tho banks of Nowfoau.l
land, tho Arctic goiug down with a largo num?
ber of her passengers, while ths Vesta got tuto
Thc steamship Poriero, Captain DucheSno,
sailed from Havre ou Frid yr, lue 15th lor New
York, touching at Brost, which port she loft
the day folio? i tiff (tho lGth). She encountered
sironghead winds and heavy weather ulmost
from t:ie start. The storm increased in violence
until when tivo days out from IJrest, ll became
a furious gale, which threatened destruction to
tho shiD. Heavy seas broke over her, carrying
away.citiroiy the forwari deck cabin, dining
saloon and bar of tho second- ilnss passengers,
deluging tho engine room aud pirtially dis?
abling tho ship. Tho stoi m caused tho vosaol
to lurch tremendously. Tbs passe igen and
crew where thrown from placo to placo willi
great violence. Thc lo-s ot lifo and injury to
persons on board are uLiribulahlo lo this causa
only. O i tho 2lat '?o Poner? shipped an im?
mense sea, estimated at a thousand tons.
Which completely flo oded the cabi and killed
one of tho passengers outright, a ai ?ss Hnnck
clburg, from Germany. Tho stoim coming
from ibe wea', and Captain Lucuoane being
doubllul of his ability to Nusccs?fuhy ride it
out,, thought it prudent to put tuc vessel about,
which waa tl no, and she SIITIV.N1 safely nt
Havre on tho SGtli, as belora atatoJ. Throe ot
tho ciew .-nd three e>t tho second ohsa
passengers wuro killed and many others injured.
Their injuries, however, aro mainly slight, and
all aro no -v doing well. Mr. Calleghan, a Catholic
priest; Fualqoier, a Frenchman, and Misa
Hunckclburg were thc onlv passengers killed.
Hie latter had her neck brokou, No.io of the
first-cla^s passengers were injured. Thu Pe
riere's passengers go forward to New York in
the St. L-iurent next Saturday, jellore thc ar?
rival of the Pariere at Havre the passengers
assembled in thc cabin and unanimous y pass?
ed resolutions complimenting Captain De
CliCSUO for his courage and seamanship, as de?
monstrated not only in thc preso.it case, but
many times before, especially in thc collision
of thc Vesta with thc Arctic on tho American
coast j cara ago.

The following sensible article is published
in th s Saturday n amber of E. H. Gain's paper,
the Missionary Record. It would seom that
for once Democrats and Republicans eau and
do agree :
We have often thought that law compre?
hended the well-being of all tbe citizens. We
bave had muoh new law in the reconstruction J
of our State, we have had many innovations
in our organic laws; tho largest majority of
them are good, and will dout tiesa work well
for the State. Possibly none will fail to see in
the future, that tho largest number of the
laws passed will ba beneficial to all classes of
our citizens. Many may object to the new
code of laws; yet even those are now willing
to recognize those which have been enacted
by the present General Assembly. Many acts
have been passed to meet the special cases of
importance to tho State. Among those acts
Ohe was passed to regulate the election and
government of cities, towns and villages. A
special act for Charleston was passed and an
election ordered. Express provisions were
made by which such election should be con?
ducted. Tho election accordingly was held,
and tho result was that - much fraud, glaring
and outrageous, was perpetrated on both s:des.
The result was a smgulai ly close vote of sev?
enteen majority for the Republican candidate;
a contest ensued; that contest has been going
on in various forms for some ti Te; it has been
before the Board of Alderm '., before the
court; able lawyers have bean feed and much
money has been expended on both sides; the
colored people have given liberally to fee the
lawyers. We have had the court's decision,
and every effort has boen made, in every di?
rection, to place the parties claiming tho
offices of Mayor and Aldermen in power.
Every legitimate effort to secure these rights
has been sanctioned by every right-thinking
mind; but when any attempt is made to over?
ride tho laws, and to enact ex post J ado laws
in order to meet party purposes, and to make
the Legislature a party to such action, it meets
with our unqualified condemnation.
The bill brought in by Senator D. T. Corbin
is in violation of what we consider sound policy
and just and safe government. The purpose
is to make effective an action which was take i
prior to tho legislation which is purposed to
be mado effdctive and operative in behalf of .
the parties. This, in our judgment, is not tho
proper course. Tho Legislature mipl.t pass
an act amendatory of tho former, and thereby
ordor a now election, which would give the
settlement of the right back to tho people.
But for that body to validate an action which ?
bas transpired, and in which it is clear that '
the law passed by that body has been violated,
is too much government for this age of prog?
ress and intelligence.
We hope that tho Legislature will not nasa
a bill which is so manifestly m violation of the
Constitution of tho Stace and of the TJ iited
States, and will involve an endless litigation,
and keep up perpetual strife among the people. .
