plan In brief, is to have two small vessels of about
150 tons each-one a steamer, the same to bc sail?
ing rigged, and the other a sailing vessel, and
each officered ami manned hy twelve men. My
purpose is, on getting into the arctic regions, to
lose no opportunity of acquiring the fresh provi?
sions of thc country, which course will insure my
command against all possible danger from that
curse to arctic expeditious, thc scurvy. As a
general thing, my staple diet, and so or my com?
pany, wiil be, as formerly, raw meat and train
oil. I confidently believe 1 will bc able to reach
the North Pole and return in three years; but
should I find that it will require one or two addi?
tional years to complete the object of thc voyage
and travel, I will continue that time."
France anti Free Trude.
The French Chambers have determined, by
the decisive vote of 201 to 22, to adhere to
the existing commercial treaties with Eng?
land, whose negotiation, the work of Mr.
Cobden, was hailed with satisfaction on both
sides of the chauncl, no less by the French
than by the English themselves. Niuo years
of experience has thoroughly tested and
proved the wisdom of the policy then agreed
upon, and the statistics of trade shew that
the great manufacturing districts of France
have good cause to support the Franco
English treaties, winch have been most
beneficent in their effect upon the finances
and general material interests of the people.
Between 1861, the time of the ratification
of the treaty, aiid 1SG3, the export of cham?
pagne increased from 6,900,000 to 12,800,0U0
bottles; the quantity of wool carded al
Rheims increased from 900,000 kilogrammes
to nearly 4,000,000. The value of tissues
and other goods manufactured at the same
place, increased in five years from fcs.
75,000.000 to fcs. 105,000,000, notwithstand?
ing the fall in prices which ensued upon the
ending of the Confederate war. And a cor?
respondent of thc New York Journal of
Commerce says tha.. the Rheims manufac?
turers, so far from complaining of enjoying
less protection than formerly, (:i3 it was ex?
pected by some that they would do,) only
desired to proceed further in thc direction
of free trade, and in fact to see all existing
duties abolished. They declared, at a pub?
lic meeting, that coal, iron, utensils, ma?
chines, building materials and chemical pro?
ducts should also be put on the free list, be?
cause Hie duties imposed on tliem ."only
"served to increase the cost price of Ute
"production of their own manufactured
"goods." The result of the meeting was
the adoption of a resolution concluding with
the opinion "that the treaty of commerce
"should not only not be denounced, but its
"provisions extended by new aud progres?
sive reforms in the same direction." So
much for what the great manufacturing cen?
tre of Rheims thinks of the comparative
merits of free trade and a prohibitory tariff.
At least forty towns, more or less engaged
in manufactures, took the same view of the
question; and we have the government's an?
swer in the action of the Corps L?gislatif on
the 2Sth of January. No act of Napoleon's
reign has so much benefitted France as his
adoption of the essential principles of free
trade, and he reaps tite benefit of it in the
hearty support which his government lias re?
ceived from the great mas3 of the French
Too Good to be True.
The Baltimore Sun prints this interesting
"A private letter received from a Baltlmo
rean in Charleston, says lt ls a mistake about
distress in that part of the South, as a general
fact. All the whites who have worked are
prosperous, but black labor is cheaper than
ever-cheaper than during service days-and
excellent field hands can be had in the coun?
try at 50 to GO cents per day; women 40 cents,
boys 30 cents, and all find themselves. Many,
very many, it is stated, are begging work at
There is very lillie, if any, real truth in
this statement. In many couuties thc la?
borers will not make contracts at any price.
They ure willing, in most eases, to work by
the day; but they will not bind themselves
to work for a length of time. lu conse?
quence of thc uncertain efficiency of labor
and Hie difficulty of making contracts, large
numbers of plauters have been forced to re?
duce the area in cultivation. Nor is it true
to say that there is no distress in this part
of the Squill, as a general fact. Thejvhole
sea island region is filled with suffering
freedmen,'and there is no hope of immedi?
ate relief. _ _
The Lancaster Ledger, a trustworthy and
careful paper, publishes the following para?
graph iu its editorial columns:
"We have it from good authority that the
stockholders of the Georgetown and Charlotte
Railroad paid, or pledged to pay, fifteen thou?
sand dollars for the renewal of their charter.
What are we coming to, when public enter?
prises, promising great benefit to the people
and State, have tu be engineered through our
Legislature in this way ?"
If this money was paid, or promised to be
paid, it was to a few individuals, who grow
sleek ami rich while the General Assembly
bears the burden of their shame. Surely, this
bribery might be ferretted out. How much,
for it^tunce, was to be paid for supporting
the "Phosphate Monopoly" bill ?
WE TAKE the liberty of printing the fol?
lowing extract from a letter received yester?
day from a Soutli Carolinian of high position,
ripe kuowledge and long experience in pub?
"Your articles on the next elections have
pleased me very much. I eau accept your
'Platform' icitk all my heart, and feel satisfied
that you have struck the only key that will
allow Hie slightest shadow ol' a hope in South?
ern resuscitation. We now have to deal with
facts, and Hie day of rhodomontudc has gone
by forever, though I see that some of your
brethren do not think so."
TUE Cubans have relieved Quesada, and
promoted General Jordan to the command
of tlie army. In this way they may see the
"other side of Jordan ;" but, unie. 6 we are
much mistaken, they will lin i out one of

Oar Judicial System.
Thc State presa complain that under the
present judicial system, thc criminal busi?
ness, in many counties, occupies the entire
time or tho judges, and the civil business is
necessarily neglected, "/his is said to lie
due, not to any great increase of crime, but
to defective arrangements, which allow hun?
dreds of small cases to delny the judges and
impose a needless expense upon the people.
Vhe Chesterfield Democrat advises the es?
tablishment of a separate criminal court,
\;hich could hold two terms a year, and says
that "some change is necessary to afford an
"opportunity for the administration of law
"and justice." The Greenville Mountaineer
lias always been "in favor of a separatio!)
"of thc Courts of Sessions and Common
"Pleas," and believes it to bc more than ever
desirable in thc present state of public
morals. It takes the ground that thc flt ad?
ministration of justice would be greatly aided
by "the establishment of a separate court,
"which should have cognizance of at least
"all criminal causes, except those of a very
"high degree, and the adoption and strin
"gent enforcement of strict rules of practice
"Hierein." The Anderson Intelligencer
thinks that perhaps magistrates are some?
times to blame for allowing trivial matters
to go before the grand jury; but it thinks
that the establishment of separate courts
would "insure the trial of all criminal busi
"ncss without delay, and at the same time
"promptly adjudicate the civil canses."
A CORRESPONDENT of thc Barnwell Jour?
nal contradicts the report that ex-President
Davis has been elected president of the Car?
olina Life Insurance Company of Memphis,
Tennessee. The correspondent is Himself in
error. Mr. Davis was elected president of
thc above mentioned company, he is its
president at this time, and Iiis name is pub?
lished as its president in the printed adver?
tisements of the company.

SORGO SUGAR AND REFINER
We would Invite the attention of Planters to
thc consideration of som? of tho advantages in
the cultivation or SORGO ns a Crop, which are,
the small amount or labor; the hurdy character
or the plant In its ability to endure, without ma?
terial injury, both drought and wet; its freedom
from the attaek or worms; Its carly maturing,
and the fact that thc Seed and every part of the
plant is of great value.
In consequence o. the imperfect method
hitherto adopted in preparing the Juice of this
Cune, there has arisen a prejudice, and the belief
ti.at Sugar could not bc produced, but only a very
inferior Syrup.' But, by the discovery of the
Southern Process, these opinions have been com?
pletely reversed In the minds of all those who
have examined and tested this Process, as they
realize that not only pure Syrup, superior to the
best Chemical Syrups of the Refineries, ls pro?
duced, but also Sugar equal to the best New Or?
leans, in such quantity, as to make lt without
doubt, the most profitable crop that can be plant?
ed. Of these facts abundant evidence can be
