-It seems to be pretty generally conceded
that Mr. Johnson, on retiring from the Presi?
dency, will plunge at once into tho political
struggles of Tennessee; and it seems to be
equally well nuderstood that if ho dots, ho will
mato lively times for everybody conccruod. A
Nashville letter in the leading Democratic
paper of St. Louis, the Republican, says there
is a good deal of opposition to thc project on
the part of the Democratic loaders; bat this,
ho thinks, will make ao different** Ti th the re?
sult, for, he adds, that he never know Mr. John?
son nominated on the Democratic ticket with?
out great opposition from tho party; but that
he always succeeded. Ibo writer adds : "John?
son is not a party leader, but a leader of a cer?
tain class of the people. He is a party driver.
If it is his intention to canvass Tennessee for
tho ofilia of Governor, he will do it, no matter
what Democratic leaders may say, no matter
what bonduolding Conservatives may say, no
matte- what the Conservative papers of Ten?
nessee may write on the subject. But none of
these will openly oppose him. I can safely
predio , that A. J.'s cam ass for tho Governor?
ship of this State, should it be mado, wiil not
be exceled by anything in tho way of political
drama, jet enacted, for tidiness of entertain?
-A Washington letter to tho Baltimore Ga?
zette says: "The cxaminalioa of private ser?
vants on Mr. Corcornn's claim excites no littl j
comment in diplomatic circles. The claim for
the occupation of property by thc Liueoln ad?
ministration was allowed in the Treasury De?
partment. Congress not donying thc jiistico
of it, iceks to avoid tho payment of it by tax?
ing Mr. Corcoran with disloyalty. Accordingly
Mr. Brewer, who wa3 a scarcely giown man
six or Bsvcu years ago, is brought before tho
Committee oa tho District of Columbia, to
whom thc o.' tim has been referred in the Sen?
ate, aad nlbwod to testify in an examination
Btrictly ex narie, that at a private dinner at tho
Russian .Ministers a very prominent gentle?
man-one of tho old school-said that he would
give tea thousand dollars to have Jeff. Davis
come to Washington and hang Liucoln and his
Cabicot, upon which Mr. C. said that he would
give ton times as much. No gentleman,
possessed of that tact which loug political ex?
perience give*, would have so compromised a
minister ia troublous times. Bo3ides which,
another gentleman, said to havo been present,
-declares that ho never was at such a dinner.
Barun Stoeckl bas left Washington, it is now
known, not to return; otherwise this creature
would never have dared to give any such testi?
mony. What will bo thc upshot of it it is im?
possible to say. Some foreigners think that
the members cf the committee may yet havo
the decency to dismiss the subject without at?
tempting to moko the testimony public. The
i dea of trusting at any time to the testimony
of lackeys as to private dinner table conversa?
tion, is simply too monstrous, and to attempt
to bring it forward after years have elapsed
makes it a creat deal worsp."
-A steam velocipede bas recently been in?
voiced, by which it is asserted groat speed
can bo obtained. The cylinders are placed
vertically in-front of tbe boiler, between it aud
tho seat, and connect witb cranks on the shaft
of the driving wheels, which, two in number,
are situated on the front part of the carriage.
Tho engine is a direct-acting compound en
?iue of two cylinders, each cylinder two-and-a
half inches diameter and Uve inches Btroke.
The steering gear consists of an endless chain
working over a grooved wheel on tho axle of
the driving wheels, and passing over a corres?
ponding wheel, fixed between the forked shaft
just over the single steering whoel. which in
this instance is in the rear of the carriage.
Tho latter grooved wheel is a wide one, and
over it passes another chain, which works
arouud the boss of the front wheel.
This arrangement gives power to thc
steering wheel, so that in turning a
corner it takes a wider sweep than the
two driving wheels, which go first. In travel?
ling on a straight road tba machine is turned
to either side by turning the steering wheel to
tho opposite side. The fire box and tubes are
copper, pressure two hundred pounds to the
square inch; but it is asserted that a pressure
ot twenty-five pounds of steam will givo a
power equal to tho, force necessary to propel a
volocipeds by the feet. The steam velocipedes,
however, it is asserted, will be an uncomforta?
ble apparatus for the driver, since ho must sit
near the boiler. Up to January 1, 1869, it is
reported, there have been taken out thirty
patents for velocipedes, the first patent dating
June 26, 1S19.
CHARLES TO ?.
WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 17,1869
Dur Financial Position.
Thc question cf the resumption of specie
payments, which'isso generally discussed in
the North, attracts but little attention in the
Southern States. Our newspapers are not
flooded with letters pointing out the royal
road to the haTd money era ; public
speakers have no word to say about the
almighty paper dollar; our new-fledged rep?
resentatives in Congress arc not bored
with memorials or petitions in opposition
to the glitter of gold, or in favor of the
flimsy greenback. The reason is obvious.
Wo aru at this moment, notwithstanding tho
war ana the uncertainties of a system of
free n< gro labor, in a more sound financial
condition toan are the Northern States.
At our backs we have two and a half mil?
lion baka of cotton, worth in the "aarket
two hundred and fifty million of dollars.
In this State alone, the cotton crop is worth
more than twenty million. This year tho
South miy expect to produce at least four
million bales, and v/e do not anticipate that,
any crop short of four and a half million
bales wiil cause uplands lo sell for less than
from twenty to twenty-two cents. Cotton
is our buck-bcue, the. strong tower of our
whole commercial fabric. It is evident
enough thar, cs long ns we can make ?ot
tou as well as wo have done during the last
yrarj- m tong-a.?-.?Up TTUIUI-umhj la "min
that long-loukcd for cotton couutry which
can make it independent of. our staple, we
can com mind ail thc^currcncy that we re?
quire, and be always in a better position
to resume specie payments, or endure an
inconvertible currenoy, than the merchants
and manufacturers of thc Northern centres
Cotton is gold, if we choose to make it
so. Tne price of the staple is regulated
by the-European demaud, abd not by do?
mestic consumption. Every pound of cot?
ton which is exported is sold for gold, and
wc repeat that the South could drain the
whole of New England and the West of its
specie, by requiring that cotton should bo
paid for in hard money alone. Such a pol?
icy on our part, however, would evince
little practical wisdom. There is not over?
much confidence here in cither greenbacks
or United States securities. Thc planters
and farmers do not inveet their balances in
five-tweuties or seven-thirties or any other
?alional financial denomination. Their
distrust, however, is gradually wearing
away; but it ia still Btrong enough to impel
them to buy gold and keep it as something
which neither Congress nor Radicalism nor
the inevitable freedman can deprive of in?
trinsic value. This feeling is bringing
Bpecie in a 6teady stream to the South and
holding it here; but as that specie repre?
sents the net profila of the producer rather
than the price of hia produce, it will not
suffice to cause any embarrassing strin?
gency ia tho Northern gold market. If,
however, we were io demand gold or silver
for the whole three and a half million bides
of cur cotton, thc par er dollar would go
head-long down hill, and. there would be a
panic in New York greater even in ita in?
tensity than that of twelve years ago. But
we cannot afford to ruiu the North, evca if
ive have thc power. As theio could not be
lasting prosperity for thu North while the
Souih waa in the dust, so there would be
trouble, serious trouble, in the South, if
the North were bankrupt. The two sec?
tions aro more or lesa de-pendent the one
upon the other; and aa we know that cotton
is measured by a gold standard, and that ile
price iu paper mu?t increase ia the ratio
of the depreciation of the paper currency,
wc can well afford to mind our own busi?
ness and leave the problem of specie pay?
ments to be solved by those whom it more
We have this year demonstrated the won?
derful elasticity and energy of the South.
We have made ourselves commercially inde?
pendent. We have given less attention to
party politics and more care to commerce
and trade. This, wo hope, will be the
course of our people in the future. They
can make as much money aa they need;
they can, ia time, solve the negro question
or cut that Gordian knot; they can, with?
out agitation or risk, but with a few more
crops of cotton, secure aa influence which
will make the South a power iu Congress,
and exuirt the adoption and continuance ot
a liberal Federal policy. Our pusition \s
strong: our hearts are light; our ful ure ia
bright with hope. Why need we, who owe
but little, and who produce yearly mon
gold by our labors than ?B drawn from thc
gold mines of the entire globe, trouble our
heads with the questions at which Wall?
street trembles ? *

Book House, Charleston.
Henry Ward, Beecher must look to his
laurels. The life of Christ which he an
nounces is anticipated by a volume written
very much in his style, and with a variety
of contemporary allusion, such as the sen?
sationalist of tho Plymouth Church can
scarcely go beyond. Tho analogies to
which Mr. Abbott resorts are oftentimes
fanciful, for lime does not repeat itself,
neither does nature. The correspondence
he seeks to establish between the Jewish
Commonwealth and the American Republic
fails in many particulars, ffis description
of Galilee, as "the New England of Pales
tine," is singularly infelicitous; it is found?
ed neither on thc manners, of the people,
the products of the sell, thoclimato, nor the
geological formations, but simply upon the
f ct that either i? a rolling country with a
Lebanon (a white mountain) range to the
northward. Perhaps Mr. Abbott needs to
bo reminded that the Syrian Lebanon is
white inside aa well as outside ; it ia a
limestone formation, and so has only a re
semblance in name to the granite heights of
Wo are constrained ulso to object to the
rollicking spirit in which our author ap
preaches so grave a subject as the life of
the Redeemer. Witnout question he has
made a popular book-full of information,
of genial colloquy, of happy hits, of fasci?
nating narratives. Thero is a freshness in
the careless, crisp style, a picturesqueness
in the rapid sketchings and groupings of
the Evangelical history, au American
movement and hurry given to the qniet
Oriental life, which entrances the reader ;
but for our part, we would be better suited
by s style more reverent and solomn and
tender. The illustrations are for the most
part excellent, au J add to thu iuterest of
the volume. The republication, however,
of some of tue plates, from Abbott's "Holy

ton : Fogartiea' Book DopoBitory.
Mr. Howells is BO well known as a writer
of graceful and delicate prose, that we have
long felt that it was "on the cards" that he
might some day glide into verse ; and just
such verse as we have here, delicate, airy,
tender, pathetic, musical. The poem is
wri::en in hexameters, and Mr. Howells
maneges that very difficult, measure with
grace aud spirit. It is very short, only
fifty pages of largely priuted letter-press
The theme would have borne a little more
elaboration. What there is of it, however,
is simply charming, and few who have read
it once but will retrace their steps. The

NEW YORK, November 15. 1868.
Io the People of thc Southern States i
"WHEN THE TITRE MEDICINAL F.ESTOF.ATIVK.
now so widely kno?n a3 WOLFE'S SCHIEDAM
??CaNAPP?, was in'roduced into the world nuder
the endorsement of four thousand leaden; members
of the medical protes6ion some twenty years ago, tts
proprietor was well aware that it could not wholly
escape the peualty attached to all new and usefu
preparations. He, therefore, endeavored to invest ii
with strongest possible safesuard against counter?
feiters, and to render all attempts to pirate it diffi?
cult and congcrous. It was submitted to Statin?
guished chemists for analysis, and pronounced by
them the purest spirit ever manufactured. Its puri?
ty and properties having oeen thus ascertained, sam?
ples of the aiticle were forwarded to ten thousand
physicians, including al) the leading practitioners in
tho United States, for purposes of experiment. A
circular, requesting a trial of the preparation and a
report of thc result; accompanied each specimen.
Four thousaud of thc most omlucnt medical men in
the Union promptly responded. Their opinions of
tho or?cle were unanimously favorable. Such a
preparation, they paid, had lone been wanted by
the profession, as no reliance could be placed on the
ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which were
moro or less adulterated, and therefore unlit for
medical purposes. Ihe peculiar ex-cllence and
strength of thu oi of jumper, which formed one of
thc principal ingredients of the Schnapps, togother
with an unalloyed character of tho alcoholic ele?
ment, give it. in the estimation of tho faculty, a
marked superiority over every other diffusive ftimu
laut as a diuretic, tonic and restorative.
These satisfactory credentials from professional
men of tho highest rank were published .in a con?
densed form, and enclosed with each bottle of the
Schnapps, as one of thc guaranteer of its genuine?
ness. Othor precautions against fraud wcro also
adopted; a patent was obtained for the ari ide, tho
label was copyrighted, a Jae simile of tho proprietor's
autograph signature wa-- attached to each label and
cover, his name and that of thc preparation were em?
bossed on thc beides, and thc corkc were sealeU with
bis private seal. No article had over been sold in
this country under the name of Schnapps prior to
thc introduction of Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic
Schnapps, in 1801; and tho label was deposited, as
bis Irado mark, lu thc United States District Court
for the Southern District of New York during that
It might bc ?-upposed by poisons unarquainiod
with tho diring character ot tho pirates who prey
upon the rc* v'ation ot honorable merchants by vend?
ing deleterious trash under their name, that tho pro?
tections so carefully thrown around those Schnapps
would have precluded the introductions ami sale of
counterfeits. They seem, however, only to have
stimulated thc rapacity of impostors. The trade
mark ot th J proprietor has beeu stolen; the indorse?
ment which his Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps alone
received from the medical profession hud been
claimed by mendacious humbugs; his labels and
bottles have bcon imitated, his advertisements para?
phrased, his circulars copied, and worse than all,
dishonorable retailer*, after disposing of tho genuine
contents of kn bottles, have filled them up witb
:ommou gin, tho most deleterious of all liquors, and
thus madn his name and fannel a cover for poison.
1 ho public, tho medical prolCMiou and ihe sick,
for whom Ihe Schiedam Aromatic Schnapp? ia pre?
scribed as a remedy, arc equally interesto i with tho
proprietor iu thc deice:iou and suppression of these
aclarious practices.. The gocume article, mauuiac
