LONDON, September 7.-The Times, in an
article on the French situation, says, many
think Prince Napoleon's speech was only a* feel?
er to arrive at a knowledge of men's minds.
If so, it was promptly answered. The clamor
raised places the real liberal aspirations
of France beyond doubt. The ' Prince's
speech may be taken as tbe programme
of the imperial government, such as must
arise when the present, men and principles
are removed, and' when the constitution is
reformed on the basis of nitional sovereign?
ty, municipal self-government, and-ministerial
responsibility. Prince Napoleon's part in the
new order of things depends on the chances of
the Emperor's recovery. Shoold tbe Emperor
live, a liberal ministry, with Prince Napoleon
at its head, would be an experiment worth try?
ing, If the Emperor's absence from the Cabi?
net is to be indefinitely prolonged, it is difficult
to say who could dispute tbe Lieutenancy of
tbs Empire with Prince Napoleon. The piescnt
crisis in France cannot be without grave con?
sequences, and the Prince has placed himself
in a position in which it will be no good policy
for the Emperor to dispense with or overlook
him. . - -

GEORGETOWN, Saturday, September 4.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
The breadth of rice lands cultivated this
year in this region (including tbe delta of the
Santee3ivera) is by figures 16100 acree. Of
this quantity 2000 acres are cultivated i?y the
freedmen on their own account, about 350acres
of whioh is hired by them at a given number
of bushels per acre; the remainder, say 1660
acree, they cultivate entirely in their own
time, without division of the crop with the
proprietors of the land. Most of tbe proceeds
of .the freedmen's crop finds its way to market
?through tba shopkeepers of the town and
country, wbo als J buy up all the stealings. It
can never be satisfactorily ascertained, there?
fore, what proportion of tbe shopkeeper's
Bales or shipments are from the freedmen's
legitimate earnings, and what from their un?
lawful peculations. It may be safely compu?
ted, however, that vf tho 2000 acres'cultivated
on account of tbe freadmen tbe average product
will, not exceed ten bushels per acre, md but
a portion of this will go to market, as much
will be exhausted by domestic consumption.
The product of tbe 14.100 acres cultivated by
proprietors remains still a matter of guess?
work. The harvest bas commenced and will
progress steadily after this week, weathor per?
mitting. The rice birds n ade their appear?
ance five days earlier this year than tbe last,
and their number ?B legion. What damage
they will do can't be estimated, but that they
will prove very destructive no one doubts.
The present year will bo noted among rice
planters as extraordinary. It has beau tbe
dryest and the hottest sommer, with tho water
courses lower than they havo been since 184^.
Ordinarily, these circumstances combined
would be considered most favorable for a rico
crop. To counterbalance this the spring
months were unusually cool and unfavorable,
lbj early plantings gave a bad stand, which
in maoy instances had to be hoed up and re?
planted The rice dried from the apron t-fl o iv
thinned oat ?nd became sickly, and where tbe
point-no w was held on and tho early long water
used, the growth was better but irregular. It
will not be denied that ali the early plantings
were unsatisfactory, excepting, perhaps, in
some few cases, under tbe entire water cul?
ture. Whilst the cold spring retarded the
growth of the rice, the grasses and weeds ?ot
the start of the hoes, t nd tbe reluctant freed?
man never recovered bis lost ground. It bas
proven a very grassy season, and few crops
have been laid by thoroughly cleaned. This
never fails to reduce the product of a crop.
The irregularities of the early growth above
alluded to bave resulted io a corresponding
irregularity in the shooting or earing out of
the rice, which will continue more definitely ia
the ripening of the grain. This will demagj
the quality materially; for rice tbat matures
irregularly never gives a uniform quality un?
der tbe pestle. All of the early rice is open to
this objection, as far as my observation and
All these things fairly considered, bring me
to the conviction that many will bo disappoint?
ed both as to quality and quantity of the crop
of I860. Tbe average product of this entire
area of tide water, under its former unsur?
passed cultivation, scarcely*, eached 38 bush?
els. Since the war it bas not exceeded 20
bushels any one year, and I do not believe that
the present crop for market will exceed one
tieioe per acre for all the landa cultivated.
More than ordinary efforts have baen made to
insure a good crop thia year. Tho scarcity of
labor has enhanced tbe price ot work, and a
system has been inaugurated by sometplanters
wblob must continue to demoralize and put
tbe freedmen beyond control, and u timately
ptove suicidal. There are s->me without ade?
quate plantation accommodations for laborers,
and others without sufficient force residing on
their premises to cultivate their lauds. These
rely exclusively under emergencies upon what
they term transient labor. During planting,
hoeing or harvesting, they offer double prices,
and succeed in drawing from their neighbors
bands who are morally bound for the year; and
no matter what their necessities, the planters
who engage a force sufficient for tbeir own
purposes, at fair daily wages for the entire
year, frequently find their fields abandoned,
and tbeir laborers scattered among those who
offer the highest bribes. This system iq ex?
ceedingly pernicious, unneighborly and unjust,
and we never can utilize what labor we have
to the good of Che country until some uniform
and more equitable policy is substituted.

.FEOM Olm OWN COEBESPONDENT 1
OBANGXBUBO, S. C., September 9_Tho leth?
argy of summer is wearing away with the ap?
pearance ot "Kins: Cotton," whose advent is
three weeks in advance of the last season.
The planters are delighted with the ruling
prices (a grateful off-et to other ruling in?
fluences,) and are offering the staple as fast as
it can be purchased for market. A protracted
season of drought has so reduced the mill
ponds that ginning is retarded seriously, and
it is generally admitted that the rust has cut
short the crop of cotton, and a reduced crop of
rice is the result of the dry seasons. Impro ve?
ments command all the mechanical labor of
tho town. Mr. Doyle is erilarging sod improv?
ing bis store, and the old j -ail now boasts a tin
rooi, and is escaping the savage scars of "Te?
cumseh." The "Edisto Base Ball Club," un?
der tho management of President Thomas AI
bergotti, have gone into practice. An effort is
on tapis to organize a hook and ladder com?
pany, to co-operate with the firemen. Snch
an enterprise commends itself to public atten?
tion. The S. O. 8., a party of conglomerated
material, are vainly striving to build np that
"third party." Our community is favored with
the presence of Dr. H. M. Bruns. Tbe doctor
is enjoying a brief relaxation from bis scholas?

their brethren aro brought oat, dead or

A dispatch from Plymouth, dated on Tues?
day lost, says :
Two parties of minors descended the shaft
this afternoon. The first was compelled by tbe
gas to retreat after going twenty-five feet into
the gangway. The damp was two or three feot
deop at the bottom of the mine. The second
party returned sifely. They penetrated the
gangway Beventy five foot, and found the large
door wida open. Taey then wont one hundred
feet further in one ot"the passages, and found
the small door closed.
After opening this door to give a circulation
of air around tho ontrauce, they returned.
Had this small door been open there might bc
a shade of hope, as the gas, smoko and fire
would have had free passage ?round the cir?
cuit and out a^ain. As it is, tbe fears arc that
the smoke bas penetrated the inner mine and
suffocated all tho men. The main doorway
leading to the mine has not yet been reached.
A third set of men-four m number-went
down and carno back in fifteen minutes, two
of them so oveicome with the effects of gas
tbat they were restored with difficulty.
The gas is coming out or the outer mine
very fast since the passage way was opened. It
soemB idle to peril life by any further attempt
to go down as long as the gas is so strong.
No attempt can of course be made to reach
tbo main door or to penetrate the mine nut il

in the most good-natured way. Meissonnicr

-At a regatta at Cherbourg, Franco, on the
15th ultimo, one of the boats from the Unite!
SUteB frigate Sabine won tho firat prize
against eleven competitors. The American
boat drew number eight, and accordingly took
the position iu line at the buoy bearing thia
number, where it quietly lay, awaiting the hour
of departure. Meanwhile the French boats
were pulling up and down the line, to show
off, in the presence of the thousands of spec
11tors assembled on tbe sboro. Nearly all
the boats for thia race palled more oars than
tho Sabine's; moat of them having sixteen_
and some if them eighteen oars; the America?:
boat, though quite ss laige as any other, had
bul twelve, an important difference in a con?
test like this, and one which would have de?
tened most others from taking part in it. At
two o'clock the first gun was fired. In one
minute tho second was fired, and the boats
were off. Now "came the tuc of war." Most
of the crews pulled hard for the first five hun?
dred yards, leaving the Sabine's boat behind.
But then Lieutenant Commander Bartlett, who
understood bis mon, began ateodily to gain,
and when bis boat turned the buoy, a mile off,
he was eight boat lengths ahead of all. Tbe
America .s now pulled with a will; they reit
their strength, and Knew just what they had to
contend with. On they weat, steadily gaining
on their eleven adversaries, and when they
gained and passed the grand stand, the Sa?
bine's boat was more than (en lengths ahead.
Each boat carried a little pennant at its bow,
and as the American boat passed the staff in
the water, upon which the French flag was
flying, Lieutenant Commander Bartlett dipped
his ensign and tossed oars. His boat wa- at
once saluted as victor by some ten thousand
cheers from the assembled multitude on shore.

Tho subjoined letter from Chief Justice
Chase appears in the New York Sun:
NARRAGANSETT, August 14,1869.
Afy Dear Mr. Briggs-Yonr note of the
29th, after a rather long journey, reached me
I should be very glad to see you and talk
with you on any subject but politics. Dr. Bailey
used to say that of Bunyan's Pilgrims he repre?
sent ed Christian and I Hopeful. I am 'still
hopeful. When I was younger, and thought
that if largely trusted by tbe people I could
do goad servie to the country, I should bavo
been glad to have been so trusted. Now 1 am
older, and not at all satisfied that, if in a
higher place, I could do any better than thoso
now exercising executive functions do. I am
more than content to let aspiration alone. My
hopes are in others.
lt amuses mo to bear of Chase movements
bore and there. I don't believe there are any
such. As far as locality is given to them in
Maryland, I know there are none, for I spent
two or three days in Frederick this week, and
should have beard of them if any existed. I
don't believe a bit ia them elsewhere.
If I can only perform with reasonable satis?
faction to my own conscience, and to the opin?
ions of thoee beet qualified to judge, the du?
ties of mv present position, I shall fill the
largest measure of my present ambition. ll
want nothing whatever or a political character,
and desire tbat my namo be dissociated here?
after in men's mind with all political action. If
this is too much to expect, let mc hope, at least,
that no friend of mme will lend countenance
to such absurd nonsense as that to which I
have referred. Sincerely your friend,
8. P. CHASE.

-A London correspondent of the Boston
Traveller, to illustrate the universal fondness
for rowing which prevails in England, says:
' I saw a four-oared boat on the river, a few
days ago, manned as follows: Bald-headed old
gentleman pulling stroke, two daughters amid?
ships, small boy bow, and a very small boy
coxswain. They were pulling well-a good
si uko-clean through th? water, and io a nar?
row boat, too; I think it was a shell."

?-80LOMON'8 BI TTERS.-THIS PRE
PABATION, compounded hy one of our oldest and
most esteemed druggists, baa, durin? the short tims
in which it has been offered to the public, attained
a reputation which has almost entirely driven out of
market the various toole ? and stimulants which, for
a few mon*bs, by exorbitant puning and heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for their projector*.
Solomon's Bitters are not of the flashy style, de?
pending upon large advertising, bought puff* and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition is well known to and ap?
proved by many of our best physicians, and the pro?
prietors depend upon the intrinsic merita of their
medicino to make it as popular as it in curative.
They do net pretend to oder a medicinal prepara?
tion that will cure all the ills that flesh is ben: to,
but they do contend that the judicious use of there
BUiers will greatly alleviate hum m suffering, and
bring very many to a state of comparative health
who b?ve long been 'strangers to that RH a1 blessing.
One good genuine recommendation of any oro
fessed curative is worth dozens or hundred* of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONS
have only published a fe wont of the hundreds ofun
so'iclted testimonies which the hive received. We
this morning give a copy of alerter (rom Hon. ALT- X.
H. STEPHRNS, whose peculiarly enfeebled condition
for the past six months has been known to the whole

S3" A CARD-SOUTHERN LIFE INSUR?
ANCE COMPANY, ATLANTA DEPABTMENT.
To the People of South Carolina:
The above Company was organ zed in 1866, in
consequence of tho wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. The unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of these
companies to restore their Southern policies, from
the fact that they could not operate In our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at homo to baild up our
Impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being sately invested lu the State from which it is de?
rived. The institution is purely Southern, and hence
shou'd appeal with great force (o the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to eihlblt the special advantages oft-red
by thl? pu-ely Southern Company-founded on
patnoti.-n and solid wealth. Its ratio ct assets to
liabilities-the true test of a company's strength-is
second to uone on this continent, bein? n irly$300
Whenever and wherever we have presented the
claims of this Company, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but has also secured their
hf arty co-operation. We have secured 600 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number among our Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and Colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?
peal personally to the people of South Carolina to
assist in pu-hioc forward th's deservedly popular
Southern institution. J. H. MILLER,

MW THE FEVER AND AGUE SEASON.
When the leaves begin to change remittent and in?
termittent fevers make their appearance. From the
surface of the earth, bathed nightly in heavy dews,
from marshes and swamp i surcharged with mois?
ture, from the dying foliage of tb? woods, from fes?
tering pools and sluggish streams, the sun of Sep?
tember evolve? clouds of miasmatto vapor perflloua
to health and life. The body, deprived by tie burn?
ing temperature of July and August of much of its
vigor and elastic ly, is not in a proper plight to re?
sist malaria; and boneo all diseases- that are pro?
duced by a depraved condition of the atmosphere
are par'icularly prevalent in the fall.
There is no ieason why the health of thousands oj
people should be thus sacrificed. A preparatory
course of DOSTETTEB'S SIOMACH BITTERS ls a
certain protection against tte epidemics and en?
demics which autumn brings In its train. Let all
dwellers In unhealthy localities, litble to such visi?
tation?, give heed to the warning and advice con?
veyed in tbisadvertisemsnt, and they may bid defi?
ance to the foul exhalations which are now rising,
night and day, from the soil around them. No farm?
house in the land should be without thia invaluable
exhilsrant snd invigortnt at any period of the year,
but especially in thc fall, lt is not safe to go forth
into the chill, misty atmosphere of a September
morning or evening wi'h Ihe stomach unfortified by
a tonic, and of all the ton'c which medical chemis?
try has jet given to the world. Hostetler's Bitten
are admitted to be the purest, Ibe most wholesome
and the mest beneflciaL
Let all who desire to escape the bilious attacks,
bowel comrlaints and malarious fevers, take the
Bitters at least twice a day throughout the present
season. Itla as wholesome as it is infallible. Look
to the trade mark, '.Hostetter'* Stomach Bl'ters,'
engraved on the label and embossed on the bottle,
and their revenue stamp covering the cork, as
counterfeit*, and imi'a'ion? abound.
