way point. The through time will be seventy
six hours. Sleeping-cars are to run on all

more it it. Fox et protcrea nihil. Ami

and we shan't be fr'ghteuod by threats of

that the Chandler speech will be a God-ser
tho Tory party at home, as they will bc
to coDBirue it as a menace; which the pari
power will be called upon to resent, or
bear tho odium of submitting to it. In

foeling, and put the day of settlement far

New Channels of Trade.
The New York Bpring trade has not t
nearly as active as it was expected to
and the commercial press of that city
endeavoring to figure out the exaot ca
of the disappointment. The Southern tr
was less than was expected, while the V
is so crippled by the shrinkage in gi
and the failure to realize upon the bull
last season's crop, that the traders of I
section have been unable to meet their
ligations with the usual promptitude,
there is another solution of the ma
that the New Yorkers seem to admit ?
some reluctance, since it foreshadows a ]
manent loss of trade to their oily. Thi
explained by a Washington paper to be
success! cl effort of the Western jobbert
establish a direot trade with foreign co
tries. The result of this movement is
coming more apparent each season. ?8
trade of the interior centres increases,
merchants of the principal distribut
markets find it profitable to import
themselves, and it is simply a question
time as to when the great cities of the Wt
now demanding to be made ports of ent
will distribute most of their imported go
from their own centres, instead of payi
tribute to the seaport markets and the i
merous railroads. Many kinds of W
India, South American and European p
ductious, which were lately drawn fr
New York, now seek their destiualion
the Southern ports. The opening of t
Pacific Railroad must tend to revolution
the Asiatic trade, causing thc goods
China and India to reach the Western oit
via San Francisco instead of New Yoi
To these movements must be added '.
growth of manufactures in the interii
and the increasing competition offered
all the old centres of commerce on the -J
lantic coast. Portland and Boston vie wi
New York for the trade of Canada and I
Northwest. Philadelphia and Baltimo
contend with her for the trade of the Wc
and Southwest. Charleston and Norfo
will be formidable competitors, as th?
direct steamship lines become more num
rous and their railroad connections with t
West and Southwest are completed.
New York will doubtless always contim
to bo the leading city of the Atlantic coat
but will hardly be able to maintain tl
overshadowing supremacy of the past.
The Cap Which Cheers.
The New York Tribune haw found o
that the climate and soil of the South a
admirably adapted to the culture of the ti
plant; and the New York Shipping ai
Commercial List says :
- "Samples of the leaves of the Youi
"Hyson Tea plant have been received fro
"the plantation of Captain Campbell, Eno:
"ville, Tenn. The plants were obtain;
"through the Agricultural Department :

"it seems that the eastern part of th,

This is doubtless thought to be a w onde rf ?
discovery; and Mr. Greeley who, if he ma
be believed, understands Southern fannie
and planting better than men who ha\
practiced it all their lives, will be surprise
to learn that tea-raising in the South is n
novelty. A Mr. Smith commenced the cu
tivation of tea many years ago near Colun
bia in this State, and was very success!"u
The example was followed by many other:
Dr. Acee, of Talbot County, Ga., ha? bee
at the business for many years, and tl

The fact is that the tea plant may I
easily raised anywhere in the South.. It j
a hardy, vigorous evergreen, bears a beat
tiful blossom and makes a very handsom
ornament for the garden. With a little car
and attention any one may have all th
varieties of tea, for they all come from th
same bush, the difference being in thc tim
of getting the 'eaves, and have better te
than such as is adulterated by the Celes
tials, or the Yankees who im; rt what one
was a luxury, but what has become a ne
ceasity to almost every family. We may b

IT IS reported that Dr. M. H. Collins is i
candidate for the office of Appraiser of thi
Port of Charleston, and has been recom
mended by one of the senators and three o
the representatives in Congress fron
South Carolina. What his qualification!
may be in the eyes of Congress and ol
President Grant we do not know; but we dc
know that Collins is repudiated by both Dem?
ocrats and Republicans here, and only ee
capes having a bad character by having nc
character a' all. Mr. Parker, the present ap?
praiser, ie not known to us personally; but
we understand that a request that he may be
retained has been generally signed by the
leading importing houses in the city.
THE BennettBvi'le Journal, in view of
what it regards as the extremely uncertain
status of the negro bond question, advices
its readers to hurry up and compromise
debts of that character on the basis of
twenty-five cents on the dollar, in all cases
where each a settlement is possible.
EEiiixiscExcn." OF FELIX MENDELSSOHN BAR?
THOLDI*. A Social and Artistic Biography.
L, Elise Polite. Translated by Lady Wal?
lace. With additional letters addressed to
English correspondons. Kew York : Loypoldt
&Holt. 18(19. Charleston : John Russel).
This is an artistic biography only so far as
it narrates thc manner in which the musical
works of Mendelssohn were composed and
produced, no attempt beiog made to gire tech?
nical analyses of his compositions or to trace
in hard lines thc plan of his professional life.
His varied compositions are treated as being a
part ot' tho man, not as an accident or an ex?
crescence, developing the idea that they who
know not his music know not Mendelssohn,
and that to those who know not Mendelssohn
his music is unknown. Tho story 's one of
touching affection, earnest friendship and de:
voted love, with strains of the master's melo?
dy running through the whole, to form the
simple, enthusiastic and large-hearted man
whom tho world knows as Mendelssohn. No
ono can read this book without knowing bet?
ter, and admixing more, the author of St. Paul
and Elijah, the Songs Without Words, and tho
fairy music of Midsummer Night's Di earn; and
the heart would be cold, indeed, that could
blame an enthusiasm which bocomcs some?
what monotonous iu bestowing a praise so
The translation is a good one, although the
womanly italic is not sparingly used, and the
book is well bound and clearly printed on
