average daily business of ?505 was transacted.
After three mouths* trial the raws were re?
duce 1 precisely one-half. The cabio was still
able to do all tho business that offered, and at
the reduced price the daily receipts rose to
?579. After s years' trial another redaction of
almost one-half was made, and a message of
ten words was transmitted tor ?3 5 j. With
charges thus only one-fourth of what they
were st the outset the daily receipts still rose,
now averaging ?535. On the first or Septem- |
ber test the charges were reduced to. ?3 7s. 6d.; |
about one-sixth of the original tariff, and un?
der this rate the daily receipts rose to an aver?
age of ?150 more than at the price charged
when the cable began operations. Ten days
ago the company made one more redaction.
For Whet, st the outset, they charged ?20,
they now charge ?2. At one-tenth the origi?
nal rates the figures fairy .-warrant the pro die

-the political situation in Virginia streets a
great deal of interest, for npom tho result of
the comic g election depends the entire future
of the State. Impressed by the importance of j
ihe occasion, Bon. B. M. T. Hunter publishes
a long letter, urging the people to deal \
the eire om-tances in which the j are placee
as to make the most of them. "Between
evils, he says, "let ns choose the !east. Ui
this view of the case, I shoo ld not he Bit at
give my vote, if I had one, to Walker for (
ernor, for a Conservative State Oovernm
and for the expurgation of the conslitn
submitted to the people of Virginia for ra
cation. I am for taking every step towt
self-government for which an opportunity i
be afforded me by the majority that mles
Concessions may be forced upon thom by
necessities of the times, or be made hom a e
returning sense of justice. I will take thei
they come, be they little or much, without
qniry into the motive which prompts tb
if they enable os to take another step towi
the restoration of our State to the right
self-government." Mr. Hunter elaborates
views at some length, concluding as folie
"The white people of Virginia have now aa
pirtunity to restore the State to the right
self-government, and to obtain the contre
its political power at home and in the Oem
Government. If they fail to do so it will
their own fault, and owing to their apathy i
iadecision. Before they lose such a re snit,
them consider in time what a loss it will
let them remember, too, that their major
though decided, is small, and to secure si
relief as is possible, every conservative vc
should cast his vote and unite in the como
cause. I know that our position is diffici
and that even if we obtiin the victory, we si
require wisdom, forbearance and energy
reap its fruits; but I have faith in my fell?
citizens, and when I see Virginians ruling \

which costs more than any otber, has bi
taken towards the restoration of her rig!
TUESDAY MORNING. JDNE 29, 1869.

The position of tho Emperor Napoleon
one fall of embarrassment. There is
deabt that the department* are still wi
him; bat the cities ?nd towns ?re oppos
to his dy nae ty, aird their power is shov
by the fact that oat of 8,000,000 Tot
?Mt at the late elections, 2,600,0
were given to the opposition candidate
Even Pams, 'for which Napoleon h
ione so much, will net be mollified, ai
bas given the government candidates bat
beggarly show of votes. If Napoleon
determined to maintain peaoe at any prie
he may adopt one of three lines of polio
The ohoioe is between taking back tl
modioum of freedom he has already gran
ed, changing the form of government
that of A constitutional monarchy, ai
making a new bid for general popular sn
port. Any one of these is open to mai
objeotions. To set ap a new despotis
would be te falsify the pledges and max in
of many years. To make himself the hei
of a parliamentary government were di
tasteful in the highest degree, whatevi
Baorifioe he may be willing to make for tl
sake of the Prinoe Imperial To bid f<
the clamorous applause of the people by
change of polioy in regard to Some, won!
be to alienate those who are now his strong
est supporters. And it must not be forgo
ten that the bitterest foes of Napoleon d
not desire to be appeased. They want
republic, and will be satisfied with nothin
It is, then, evident that in a peaoe polio
Napoleon o an hardly find an easy way <
escaping from- the difficulties whioh soi
round him. On the other hand, it is oei
tain that a brilliant and victorious wa
would restore his prestige and seat hil
more firmly than ever on the throne. Th
army is with the Emperor, heart and soul
and Napoleon may be willing to rna th
hatards of a fallare for the sake of th
ohanoe* of success. The Emperor is no
one who threatens before he is ready ti
?trike the blow. When war comes it wil
be without a word of s?ricas warning; ba
the ?peech of the Emperor at Chalons ii
most significant, whether it be taken as en
?ouregement to the army or as a means o:
feeling the poise of Franoe. Napoleon can
?f ooaree, declare once more that the Em?
pire ia Peace; bat there is now a groatei
probability of a European war than there
aas been sinoe the first days of Magenta and
Solferino. A war, indeed, is the only sola
lion of the difficulties of the position whieb
suggests itself to the outside observer, and
Napoleon is not the man to hesitate because
-here is some chance that the remedy maj
oe as bad as the disease.
The State Tatzes,
Most of the State papers now contain
articles or communications showing the
?tanner in whioh the assessed value of th?,
taxable property has been inoreased by the
State Board of Equalization. The effect in
learly ?very ease is oppressive in the ex?
treme* bat the people have no means of re?
cessing their grievance*. It was oar opin?
ion that the total value of the real and
personal estate in South Carolina should
oe at least $200,000,000, bat the respec?
table men who made the returns are better
able to determine the cash value of their
property than are the Colombia Triumvi?
rate, and even if in some instances the re?
turns were too low, it is unjust and arbitrary
to tax a whole county for the fault of a few
of its citizens.
Articles which wo find in the Oconee
Courier, Spartanburg Gazette and Sumter
Nows, 6how the state of affairs in tho
counties of Ooonee, Pickcns, Spartanburg
The value of the real and personal prop?
erty ia Ooonee and Piokens, as fixed by the
State Board of Equalization, is :
Ooonee.. . Pickens. Total.
Real estate... $2.373 693 $ 834.162 $3,227,855
Personalty... 897,078 400,667 1,297,745
$3.270.771 $1,254.829~ $1525.600
The personal property in Ooonee includes
$387,780, the assessed value of the Blue
Ridge Railroad in that county. Upon the
total property in the two counties, $4,625,
500, the State tax is $33,941. In the year
?ding Ostober 1, 1867, the State tax of
Pickens district-now divided into Ojonee
ind Pickens Counties-was $7,455, so that
ander the new regime the State taxes are
learly five times as large as they were two
-ears ago. The county taxes will amount
.o $13,573 more; so that the total tax?
ation of the two counties this year will
be $47,514 Ooonee is composed largely of
mountains and sandy ridges, and many
farms are assessed at doable and treble
their value. Two farms which sold after
the close of the war for $18,700, and oan
be bought now at that price, are assessed
Ia Spartanbarg, according to the Gazette,
it seems that after the County Board of j
Equalization had met and aeted apon the
assessment, as made by sworn assessors,
the County Auditor assumed the personal
responsibility of increasing or equalizing
them. In what manner or by whose au?
thority this equ il ii airs was made the people
are ignorant. The county which had been
regarded as one of the poorest in personal
effects in the State, now ranks next to
Charleston; the assessed value of the per?
sonal property being higher thao ia Rich?
land-whioh includes Columbia-George?
town, Beaufort or Greenville. This is com?
In the Town of Sumter the real estate
was returned acoording to the valuation of
three sworn appraisers, the owners having
nothing to do with it. The assessment for
the whole county has been raised 50 per
cent, whioh has put the town property at
all events at a price far higher than it
would bring in the market underthe most
THE CONDITION of things on our sea
islands is the subject of a very interesting
letter, printed in another column of to?
day's NEWS. The writer, by a lifetime of I
assiduous attention te the culture of long
staple cotton, has identified his came in the
markets of both hemispheres with its suc?
cessful production; and the thoughtful and
highly practical views he presents are emi?
nently worthy the attention of all who are
interested in that important branch of the
agriculture of oar State.

THE SACRISTAN'S HOUSEHOLD : A Story of Lippe
Detmold. By the Author of Aunt Marga?
ret's Trouble. With Illustration? by C. G.
Bosh. New York : Harper & Brothers. 1869.
Charleston : Holmes' Book House.
It is not often, even in these days of trans?
lations, that we meet with a story of German
life so fresh, and withal so pore, as the one
now before ?e. There is no striking original?
ity of plot and no straining after effect; but
the characters are well and dearly drawn, and
those who are familiar with the miniature cap?
ital towns of Germany will acknowledge the
truth and fidelity of the whole qoaint picture.
The story opens in 1865 and covets tho excit?
ing times of the Austro-Prussian war, when
youth and mature age were eager to wield the
sword for sn United Germany. The popular
oontest between Conservatism and Progress,
which was the roark of those stirring days,
lends zest to the story, and the chances of the
active straggle enablo the honest hero to win
a willing bride. As we have said, it ie a' lively
and amusing story, one which every one may
read with pleasuro if not with actual profit.
