-The New York World, in aa editorial article
commenting on the low rate of gold on Thurs?
day, says: ' Thc most important cause of the re?
duction ls one with which the government has
bail nothing to do. as it has no control over the
weather and thc seasons. The decline In gnni
has resulted from several causes, of which the
most important is tho abundance or the cotton
crop. Our cluer use for gold ls in the purchase of
foreign commodities, and cotton being as good
for this purpose as gold itself, aa abundant cot?
ton crop di ?piases with .va equivalent value in
gi.'.d for thc par?os : or foreign commerce. Ac?
cording to the mist reen: estimates, the cot?
ton crop of t!:e las: year dees not fall I
short or :l:rce ::;:::!~:i bales; and, a; j
the price 13 double, tum crop is equal In
value to six million bulss previous to
the war. We hare accordingly, at present, little
ase for gold except for the payment of duties at
the Customhouse. The supply ls tn excess of the
demand, and, as a necessary consequence, the
price falls, riie abundance of the cot ton crop has
operated in another manner. It Ms carried into
the South large sums of money of which only a
part hos been returned. Three million bales of
cotton, at present prices, are worth about $C50,
000,000. The planters reserve out of their proceeds
the money they will need for Ullage, wages and
family ei enses until thc next crop is brought to
market; and the deficiency of banks in that sec?
tion causes mach of this money to be locked up
In private sares and desks, thus withdrawing it
from circulation and practically diminishing the
volume of thc currency. The effect is, so far as it
goes, to lessen the disparity between the value or
gold aud the vainc of greenbacks."
Tiie City Council and thc Fire Depart?
We are informed that the prec?ntate ac?
tion of City Counc il upon the Ordinance
in relation to tho Fire Department, intro?
duced and read three times on Thurs?
day last, was made necessary by two con?
siderations: L That the C03t of the depart?
ment, for the year ending December 31st,
must be kepi within the appropriation of
$30,000; and 2. That so many new compa?
nies were pressing for admittance that it was
sound policy to limit thc maximum strength
of the department.
There is some force in both of these rea?
sons. As the Ordinance now stands, the lire
companies will receive pay at the old rate
for January and February, and at the re?
duced rate for the remaining tea months of
the year. This will give the steamers two
thousand dollars for the year, and the baud
engines nine hundred and sixty dollars.
But had action on the Ordinance been de?
fended until a subsequent meeting, the city
would have had to pay for Mareil at the old
rate, and we understand that for this reason
the City Treasurer urgently advised that the
Ordinance be passed at once. The propriety
of limiting the number of companies of
which thc department shall be composed
cannot be denied. The department is strong
euough now, and the addition of other com?
panies would increase its expense without
adding to its efficiency.
This, in general terms, is the position oc?
cupied by the City Council in regard to the
the Fire Department. We see no reason to
change our opinion that the hot haste of the
Council was unwise and unjust. The bill
could have been introduced when the Appro?
priation bill wa3 presented, and this would
have given time for reflection and discussion.
Nor have we heard any valid reasou for not
submitting the matter, iu the lirst instance,
to the Bourd of Firemasters. This would
lave given the Council au expression of the
eeliug of the whole department, and would
mve given it some foundation for its action,
itt the same time we do not hesitate to ex
tfess tbe opinion that a limitation of the
lumber of companies in the department,
loapled with n reduction in the annual pay
)f the companies, was, under the circum
itances, about the best step that could have
leen taken; and we advise our firemen, as
bey value the peace and security of the city,
o make the best of their reduced pay and !
vait patiently for better times.
The Citizens' Party Convention.
The Columbia Thcehix, in its issue of Fri?
lay, says that the opponents of Radicalism j
n South Carolina are agreed upon certain ;
mints; which points are-that there must
>e a generous and general rally in behalf of i
?olitical reform; that the political and civil j
ight3 now enjoyed by the freedmen must 1
is acknowledged; that the Opposition must
tddress itself to living issnes, and must bo
irogressive'and in sympathy with the spirit
if 'n?ustrJal development and popular en
ighteninent; and that the Opposition must
;o belora the State pledged to the principle
if fair play and justice to all, to the putting
jf able and honest men into office, to the
aonest and cheap administration of our State
Government, to the development of our
wealth, and to the encouragement of immi?
gration. So far, there is no difference of
opinion, but the question has arisen, how
shall the fight be made, and under what ban?
ner ? And the. PJtcenix suggests that "in
.?due time," a convention of the Alitl-Radi
cals assemble und "snggcsl a platform
' upon which wn may all bo able to meet and
41 light the good right of Carolina's rcdenip
A convention- of the Opposition, or, as
we prefer to call it, tiie Citizens' Party,
is necessary, of course, to secure unity
of action where unity of purpose already
exists. But to call the convention next
month, or tho next, or the next, would ex?
pose the whole movement to imminent dan?
ger-of disaster and defeat. In. thc first place,
it is impossible, in this State, to maintain the
ardor and enthusiasm of the people for any
long period of time. If a convention were
held now the whole people would be tired
out long before the dawuing of the day which
decides our destiuy. And. besides this, there
is the pregnant fact that the whole aspect of
alTairs may change at any moment. Unex?
pected strength or unlooked for weakness
may bc developed where and when we least
expect it, and who shall say that tiie men
and the measures titted for to-day are those
best adapted to a battle that shall be joined
six mouths hence? Again, the people need
time, before the hurly-burly begins, to digest
the views submitted to them, an .1 to prepare
themselves for the contest. The work of the
press is not yet done. Nor arc the people
ready to commence the right.
These considerations force u3 to the con?
clusion that thc Anti-Radical Convention
should be deferred as long as possible. Two
months is long enough for a campaign that
should bc short, sharp and decisive. Then
we can work with a will, arri with a faith
that shall fear no defeat. Let the conven?
tion be dilled at a very late day; let it repre?
sent fairly and fully all the voters of the State;
let its platform be broad and long and strong;
and the redemption of the State is as cer?
tain and us sure as the coining of thc mor?
RADICAL rumor hath it that Representa?
tive. H?ge means to clinch the question of
his own purity, in the matter of appointing
cadets, by nominating for a cadetsiiip, at un
early day, the son of one Ol hid black con?
stituents. Tli.it will certainly be very loyal
and disinterested on the part of H?ge : but
the boy, we take it. will bo ap:, for a tune
at least, to have a nica tittie ui it among ??is
EVERY SATURDAY. An Illustrated Journal of |
Choice Reading. Boston :. Fields, Osgood &
Co. Five dollars a year In advance.
This well known claimant for popular favor
has already been commended in these columns
to the favorable consideration of the public,
and it is only desired at this time to direct at?
tention to the full and attractive prospectus
printed this morning. Every Saturday is now
the bc3t paper of its class published in Ameri?
ca, and reaches nearest to the level of the
standard English Journals. It is conducted
with taste, tact and enterprising liberality, and
no pains are spared to make it a model of ex?
cellence in literature and in art.
THE ECLECTIC MAGAZINE. New York : E. R.
The March number of The Eclectic is richly
freighted with general literature and contem?
poraneous criticism. The embellishment, or
frontispiece, is a portrait of William Cullen
Bryant, of whose life a short sketch is given.
The leading paper in length, and not the least
in interest, is the Edinburgh Review's article
on thc Due d'Aumale's "Lives of the Conde's."
This is followed by a thoughtful article, from
Fraser's Magazine, on tho obvious losses as
contrasted with thc gains of popular knowl?
edge. Thc paper on Lord Rosse's telescope,
as set to the new work of spectroscopic analy?
sis, is deeply Interesting. Professor Seeley's
able articles on "Islam" are brought to a close,
and there ls a third paper on "Lambeth and
the Archbishops." Tennyson's new poems are
carefully reviewed, and thc reader is given
entire the famous chapter of Mr. Fronde's his?
tory, describing the execution of Mary Stuart,
which has excited so much criticism. The
life of Koenig, the inventor of thc steam press,
is attractively done; and the paper upon dear
old "Robinson Crusoe" is an agreeable re?
minder of boyhood's brightest and happiest
hours. The literary notices, and departments
of poetry and science, are as excellent as usual.
Mr. Fogartie, of King street, is the Charles?
ton agent lor Tte Eclectic. '
