ment of branches throughout the principal
Cities of the country argues active business

-The play world of Homburg has been higli
ly excited by the extraordinary luck of a Mal?
tese millionaire, who broke the bank at Baden
and won enormous sums at Homburg in 1863
and 1867. On the very day of lils arrival he
won 100,000 francs. This agreeable perform?
ance, moreover, might bc witnessed any of
the succeeding days. From lb* first hour of
his arrival, thc wealthy Maltese had declared
he felt he would win a large sum on the 18th,
the anniversary of the day when, In 1867, he
carried off 318,000 .'rancs at one swoop; and
win he did at the very same hour. The sum
was so large as to encumber the table in such
a manner that other players could with diffi?
culty find room to lay down their stakes. The
keenness of his eye is unrivalled. The by?
standers, who crowd around him, are aston?
ished at his telling them beforehand whether
the croupier wul turn up the winning or losing
color; and as for mistakes by Inadvertency, he
never allows one to pass unnoticed. Whether
he wins or loses, he never plays for more than
one hour a day. He ts very generous to the
needy; but the bank must have felt exceed?
ingly relieved at his departure.
-A correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette
has evidently been honored with an Invitation
to a Sunday evening tea at the home of the
Cary Bisters m New York. These little gath?

favored friends of the two song-birds who live
in a modest little house In a quiet street of
Manhattan, and their parlors are made bril?
liant on every Sunday night in winter by the
gathering of some of the best known literary
people of the city. On the evening described
-try the correspondent, Lord Adair, the son of
. the Earl of Dunraven, was present with his
wife, and the latter is described as looking
amused when Miss Phoebe Cary energetically
remarked that she "wished some other than
Booth might become the highpriest of the
drama In America." Horace Greeley was also
of the company, and he roamed about the
room "radiating smiles and common sense
nntQ he grew Ured and took his leave In his
own characteristic manner-that is, he wan?
dered vaguely away without saying good-by to
anybody." The conversation at these recop?
iions often turns upon spiritualism, both the
sisters being spiritualists of the higher type.
-The Bay of San Francisco, one of the most
magnificent Bheets of water in the world, ls
sixty miles long, ten miles wide, and the
mouth of the bay on the same paraUel as the
mouth of Chesapeake Bay. The coast tn the
vicinity ls skirted by a range of lofty hills com?
paratively destitute of foliage on their sur?
face. The mouth of the bay, Golden Gate, of
which Fort Point and North Head are the pil?
lars, ls a mlle wide, thirty feet deep, and im?
mediately spreads into a broad and beautiful
sheet of inland water, which with San Pablo
and Suisln Bays aud their connecting straits,
S large enough to harbor all the navies of tte
world. The bay is studded with islands
Angel island, Alcatraz, Yerba, Buena, Red
Rock, The Brothers, The Sisters and Mare
Island. Alcatraz ls the main fortification of
the city, and Mare Island is the seat of the
Navy-Yard. The bay is bordered by large
tracts of tule or marah, also by extensive
tracts of arable lands. The Sacramento and
San Joaquin Rivers, with their tributaries,
pour a large volume of water into the bay and
afford facilities for inland navigation. Scores
of steamers plough these inland waters, auld
hundreds of sloops and schooners-those
white-winged birds of the bay-flit to and fro
carrying thc comforts and luxuries of life In?
land, and return with the treasures of moun?
tains and valleys. _
Under the Tax act passed by the Legisla?
ture in September," 1868, all merchants are
taxed upon the average monthly value of
the property pertaining to their business hi
the year ending September 1, 1868. The
merchants had already paid during the year
186S, as in 1867, a tax on their sales, ac?
cording to the then existing rule of taxa?
tion. The tax for 1868 was especially heavy,
and when the Legislature passed a law that
another tax should be paid, in another
j shape, for the same period, it was thought
by many merchants that the last named as?
sessment would, in reality, represent their
taxation for 1869. They are informed, how?
ever, that the taxes assessed last spring are
for the year ending September 1, 1868, and
are called on to make new returns for the
year ending September 1, 1869, the new
tax being payable in March next. This
is, to all intents and purposes, a double tax.
Thinking that the Legislature, at the time
of the enactment of the present law, was
ignorant of the fact that the merchants of
the State had already paid a tax on the ope?
rations of the year 1868, and with the hope
of obtaining some relief for himself and his
friends, one of our leading merchants made
application, ki person and by letter, to the
State Auditor, to know whether those who
had previously paid should not be exempt
from the new tax, or be credited with the
amount already paid; and asking, further,
whether the payment of the tax of 1869
could not be postponed until the meeting of
the Legislature, if the State Auditor could
no? himseU decide the question. To this
application Mr. Tomlinson made the follow?
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, 1
OFFICE OF AUDITOR OF STATE, >
COLUMBIA, 8. C., October 18, 1860. )
Edwin Bates, Esq., Charleston, S. C.:
DEAR SIR-I have carefully considered yours
of 15th Instant, and aljo the statements made
by you in your interview with me, relative
to your exemption from the tax assessed
against you and other merchants for the fiscal
year 1868. You claim inasmuch as you paid
a quarterly tax upon your sales during the
year 1868, although said tax was for the fiscal
year 1867, that therefore the tax now charged
and to be cofiected on the average value of
your stock for the year preceding September
L 1868, is a double tax, and therefore Illegal,
and should .not be toileted. You also ask
that if I do not feel at liberty to decide the
question of the legality of this law, that I will
postpone its collection until the Legislature
meets, and have an opportunity of acting in
I need not assure you that I would take
pleasure in exercising In favor of yourself and
tne gentlemen you represent all thc power
w?rorrea ii]?on nie ?>> 4??*, <ua aawte ??MU* UU?
I am sure you would not ask. The question
you raise has been before me for decision fre?
quently, from other paris of the State, and I
have been unable, and am still unable, to find
anything in the Tax act which would Justify
me in passing Judgment upon the legality of
the tax In question. When the present law
was passed, although it was known that the
quarterly tax referred to was being collected,
no exception was made in favor of those who
were then paying that tax. Equity might re?
quire that such an exception should be made,
but the Legislature having failed to make it, it
ls certainly out'of my province to do so.
With regard to the postponement of the col?
lection of tills tax, I would say, that in my
opinion, thc law does not, and did not intend
to, confer upon me th<- authority to postpone
the collection of taxes In individual case*. It
is manifest that such a power would be liable
to great abuse, and defeat the very object of
the law, which Is to secure -?n cqnul. uniform
and prompt collection of the taxes.
Without conceding that your view of tue
question Ls correct, I am willing to admit
that there ls much to be said In ?ts favor; and lu
accordance with my desire to help yon all I
can, and with the view of bringing the quest'on
before the Leglslatve in the most favorably
and practicuble way, I will Instruct the audi?
tor of each county to make oat a list of the
merchants in his county who have paid the
quarterly tax referred to. with the amouut
thereor?;i each case. This statement will be
laid before the Legislature, and I have no
doubt that the subject will receive the consid?
eration lt deserves. If the Legislature grants
relief, lt will be perfectly practicable to refund
the amount overpaid, or to deduct it from the
next tax to be collected. If the Legislature
should not grant relief, it must be clear to
you that any action of thc kind you propose
would not only fall of its object, but would ex?
pose me to the just censure of that body.
I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
We do not see that Mr. Tomlinson had
the power to postpone the collection of the
tax, or to credit it to the persons by whom
it was paid. All that he can do is to bring
tho question before the Legislature at its
next session, and this is promised in his
very temperate aud considerate letter. The
matter is one which interests every mer?
chant in the Stale, and will receive, we
hope, prompt and thorough attention.

A Northern capitalist made up his mind
to invest several hundred tliousaud dollars
in real estate In Charleston. All his prepos?
sessions were in our favor, and, being a stead?
fast Republican, our Radical State govern?
ment had no terrors for him. But he thought
it best to visit the city and look about
for himself. Soon after his arrival a regular
meeting of the City Council was held, and
our stranger, led by curiosity, was present
during the session. The next moruing he
packed up his trunks and went back homo.
And this was at a time when the City
Courjcil was confining itself to the election
of irresponsible officers, the creation of fat
sinecures, and the repeal of obnoxious ordi?
Any one who will take the trouble to
read the proceedings of the last meeting of
Council, will see that the stepfathers of the
city have covered themselves with a new
glory. One at least of their number was
both drunk and disorderly, but the Board
rather laughed at his buffoonery than treated
bim with the severity which he deserved.
And how could they be hard upon the weak
head which could not endure the repeated
libations of the seasoned toper? In the
ante-room of Council it is now the custom
to place strong drinks of various kinds with
which thc Aldermen may solace themselves.
When the debate is long and dry the Alder?
men adjourn to their convenient bar-room
and tipple at their leisure. No wonder
that they were merciful toward the poor
creature who, may be, drank less al-H
though he showed it more !

SCHOOL HISTORY OK SOOTH CAROLINA. By Jas.
Wood Davidson, A. M. Columbia, 8. C.
Duffle & Chapman. New York : E. J. Hale
Mr. Davidson, in the preface to his School
History of South Carolina, says that "his aim
"has been to give In plain language an ac?
count of such points" in the history of the
State "as a schoolboy may understand," and
that In the portion that is subsequent to all
the written histories-from 1859 to I860-'-the
"effort has been to present the events of this
"eventful decade of years in narrative as little
"as possible tinged with sectional* feelings
4ito state mere facts, free from all argument
"and somment." This purpose ls well carried
out, and the result is-the most convenient
and compact school history of the State yet
The material of Davidson's history, l's found
In the usual authorities-Rivers, Ramsay.
Drayton, Logan, and the rest-and the author
has taken great care io hold evenly the scales
of conflicting opinions. It formed no part of |
the plan of the book to deal with the philoso?
phy of history; but every Important f iFt ls
given in plain words and with a conciseness of |
statement now too rare. Each chapter ls accom?
panied by questions in the usual form, and there
are a lew iiinstrntion*. graphic but somewat
rough. In tone the book is unexceptionable.
The narrative of the nuUlficailon excitements,
of the late war, and of the progress and com?
pletion of Southern reconstruction, is wholly
unexceptionable. It is free from bitterness of |
expression, but at the same time there ls no
hiding of the truth. The Southerner will find
his political position and doctrines tersely
stated, but stated in such a way that it will not
offend the people of another section. As well
as we can Judge, Mr. Davidson, in all Iiis state?
ments, ls truthful, accurate and Just.
Mr. Davidson has executed lils task with
singular discretion and good taste. What is
wanted in schools (and sometimes out of them,
ls a skeleton history which may be nibo id into
the memory until every main fact ls precisely
and positively known. These main facts aro
the rallying points of the student. Around'
then he may gather the Information of a life
time, with the certainty tiut there will be no
waste, and that cacb new par; iel.' of knowl?
edge will add to and strengthen thc enlarging
tinily of his historical information. It is use?
less to begin with extended histories of a par?
ticular event or limited period. In this way
there will be much general Information, per?
haps, but nothing positive and sure. What is
wanted ls a good foundation upon which to
build. There are many men who have ca: e
fully road the ponderous tomes of all our old
historians who have less effective historical in?
formation about this State than theycould obtain
from Davidson's history in un hour. They began
at the wrong end. At the beginning, Macaulay,
or Hume and Smollet, or Gibbon's Decline and
Fall, Is far less uselul than the short chapters
in a catechetical history, (Pinnock's for in?
stance,) covering the same ground; but when
the chief facts are Axed in the mind the stu?
dent can read up any or every period with
certain protlt and advantage.
The little book ls neatly printed, and ls sold
