the repeal of that pat t of thc internal revenue
laws which Imposes a license tax, rated at Ave

that the revenue taxes paid by hotel-keepers ure
seven and a hair times greater than those paid by
merchants on the same amount or capital, and
the effect or the five per cent, tax on rentals does

-General Quesada, the leader of the Cuban
army, arrived In Savannah on Saturday morning
from St. Augustine, by the l0:-">0 Gulf train, and
departed the same evening ror Washington, with
his staff officers, six tn number. The General is
on business connected with the cause In which he
is engaged. He represents the Cubans as 20,000
strong, but needing arms, which he will doubt?

-We have already noticed the declension or
General Reynolds or a Texas senatorship. Since
then the text or his letter declining the "use or
bis name" has been published. The following
portion presents in a nutshell the precise point in
the ease of General Ames. No doubt Reynolds
has thns taken the proper view or the law and
the common sense and the decency involved in
the matter: "I have, to be sure," he says, "resid?
ed m the State, with trifling Intervals, more than
three years, but this residence has been as an
officer ol the army, charged, in addition to thc
. ordinary duties of my profession, with the recon
8truction laws of Congress. Nothing but thc ex
lstenceof an unprecedented emergency could war?
rant the government iu placing in the hands ot a
single Individual the vast power entrusted by
these laws to a district commander. I doubt
whether a -residence under such conditions con?
stitutes an inhabitant or thc State in the sense in
which this phrase is used In the Constitution or
the United States."
-The Elevated Railway in Greenwich street,
New York, ls now completed for its entire length,
from the Battery to Thirtieth street. The motive
power on this road is stationary and consists of
seven eugines, each with two oscillating cylin?
ders, nine inches in diameter and fourteen inch
stroke, and of thirty horse power. These en?
gines are situated in vaults under tho sidewalk,
and are placed at Intervals along the line. The
engine for each division turns a driving wheel,
which propels an endless rope passing round a
cylinder at the other extremity of the section.
Attached to this rope at dlstauces or one hundred
and fifty feet, are small trucks with diminutive
wheels, which run on a wooden track underneath
and between the main track. Tuese trucks are
armed with a small slot, to and from which the
passenger cars can be attached ana detached by
a lever in front, under the rontro* of the conduc?
tor. The passenger cars run on eight wheels,
and are built on a framework, protected by ellip?
tic springs from the sudden jar or the rope when
the connection is made with the truck. The
wheels or the car arc or wood, with iron tyres,
and the motion ls nearly noiseless. When lt ls
desired to start thc car. the conductor moves thc
lever, which ls caught by the flrst truck, and the
car ls carried along until thc lever ls again de?
tached and the break applied to the axles.
-The New York correspondent of the Boston
Advertiser draws aside the curtain and gives us
a glimpse behind the scenes in the Woman's Suf?
frage movement, which he assures us is conduct?
ed "with the utmost vigor, but lt seems with
rather questionable means." The way ia which
the leaders prosecute those women who have
the courage to be on some points heterodox ls
he assures us, ?a caution,'- and ls likely to d?
their canseseriuni injury with lovers of fair play
He relates au instance of a lady lecturing on
Charlotte Bronte, who gave great offence by pro?
claiming "Herc was one woman who had nobly
achieved success without the ballot." A party
? eoS,^ **? upon her and askeu
her to erase the statement, on her refusal the*
declared? that they would m???^Z
hot for her, and began to prosecute heVin he
most annoying way (thc posters which she had
pat up announcing her lecture were torn down
by some unknown hand," Ac. Ac.) They then
we are told, attended her lecture and tried to
nlss the obnoxious words, bat a storm of applause
drowned their etlorts. This has caused, he adds
a"wondrous fluttering an 1 renewed prosecutions
and endeavors" to drive thc courageous little
lady from the city.
-Wall street has experienced another commo?
tion in gold, vividly recalling thc tempestuous
scenes whu-h were enacted in September. The
Gold Room excitement on Thursday was feverish?
ly animated. At the opening the apartment was
densely crowded with operators, and thc gallery
was Ulled to its ntmost capacity with cager spec
tators, earnestly watching the noisy dealers,
whose shouts at times made the dingy windows
rattle in their casements. The first quotation, at
IO o'clock in the morning, wa3 117?i. The price
did not change materially until about a quarter
past ll, when it dropped to 717. By this time the
bulls, who had nervously wa oed the yellow treas?
ure steadily sink in two days from 119, with little
prospect of rallying, lost all hope or tossing
lt up again, and immediately and suddenly
withdrew their horns. The bears had it all their
own way, and before 3 o'clock thc price dropped
down to 116>i-the lowest figure that had yet
been reached since September, 1SG2. Thc stock
market was also a trifle sensational, a change
having taken place In the relative values of gov?
ernment bonds and gold, thc sixes of 1S81 selling
at a premium In specie, being quoted at 117^ to
117y. when gold was at 116"?. At the same time
thc'five-twenty bouds ol 1862 sold in London at 90,
the highest figure ever reached there by them,
and within about one per cent, or par in gold.
Congratulations were heard on every hand among
the solid and steady business men or Wall street,
who anticipate very satisfactory results from this
marked approach of thc national credit to its pro?
A Conference of the Press.
All the anti-Radical papera of the State
are agreed upon the main points of the policy
which shall bc followed in the fall elections,
and the differences of opinion which clo exist
can, we believe, be easily reconciled if an
opportunity be had of freely discussing the
political situation. We, therefore, heartily
approve of the proposition of the Columbia
Guardian, that a convention be held of the
editors of all the anti-Radical or Opposition
papers in the State, and join with our con?
temporary the Courier in the expression
if the confident belief that such a conven?
tion would do more towards promoting
unity and concert of action than any other
:ourse that could be devised.
The convention of the people may, with
tdvantage, be postponed ; but we should be
;lad to see a convention of the anti-Eadi
;al press held without delay.
Through those thick mists and clouds of
rrejudice that have bewildered the Northern
nind, ever since the war came to an end, the
ight begins to break. The patient people who
lave waited for reconstruction year after
rear-who have been told that it would be
?ffected when Andy Johnson had been dis
)laced, or when such or such an, amendment
lad been passed, or when the Ku-KJuxes
jad boon intimidated, or when General Grant
lad been elected, or when Yankees who had
jone a-stuniping at the South joined hands
vlth their Northern brethren in Congress,
ire now beginning to fear that it will not
lake place until the skies drop larks or the
noon turns to green cheese. They are bo
rinning to understand that reconstruction
s a euphemism for obstruction and destruc
lon. They find that Radicalism has no ob
ective point, and offirs no resting place.
!ts progress is like Satan's fall, "from deep
Thoughtful men have not forgotten how
Georgia, notwithstanding her compliance
?vitli the terms Imposed upon her, has been
-emanded to a worse than territorial condi?
tion. And they now observe that the Con?
gressional leaders claim that a like inter
Terence may take place in any State. Con?
sistently enough 1 For if the right to "guar?
antee a republican form of government"
tuthorlzes the appointment of a dictator to
:ontroI the Legislature of Georgia, it au?
thorizes the quartering of a garrison in the
State House of New York. If Congress has
me right to decimate and Radicalize a Dem?
ocratic Legislature to the South of Mason's
ind Dixon's Line, it may exercise a similar
control on the other side of that now obso
ete sectional boundary.
In referring to the Georgia case, Mr. Bird,
)f New Jersey, recently expressed a convie
lion which deepens in the Northern mind,
?uch sentiments a3 he uttered have boon
leretoforc denounced as disloyal. The time
s coming when they will be esteemed as the
listinguishing badge of American patriots,
ind when all wise, pure men will see that
hey relate to the salvation of tho country.
3uid Afr. Bird: "If I understand the temper
'of thc people, this strange, unnatural and
'outrageous interference with the rights of
'a free people will never be accepted by
'those who sincerely love a constitutional
'form of government houestly and faithfully
'administered. You may append this change
'to the constitution, but the people of many
'States will neither respect nor obey it. It
'will bc denounced as illegitimate, and those
'who stand as its sponsors to-day will in the
'hour of its peril flee from its vindication. It
'will be ignored and resisted. Great and
'sovereign States will not yield to an intole
'rablo degradation at the dictate of force,
'whether it be aimed at them through a
'Congressional majority directly or through
'the action or a far off State. * * *
'The end is not yet. This system of recon?
struction is a monster which will create
'storm, tempest and disorder, until the peo
'ple, by the ballot or otherwise, overthrow
'the authors. There is no safety from des
'potism but in preparation to reject this
'flagrant wrong; and let the issue come. If
'we save ourselves and this great political
.inheritance, we must do it through thc just
'and fearless vindication of those rights by
'some so long despised and rejected-the
'rights of thc States."
These arc manly and noble words. They
ntlicate to the citizens of every State the
mth of political safety. The Radicals must
ie overthrown, or thc commonwealth is
uined. In our own case the exigency is so
jreat that we feel called upon to make every
aerifico not inconsistent with principle and
lonor, for the purpose of defeatiug the titled
hieves who are wasting the resources, pil
aging thc treasury, anti staining the hitherto
potless fame of South Carolina. lu the
lame of magnanimity-yea, in the name of
?bert)-, we have been oppressed and phil?
tered. We have had felons assigned to us
s magistrates, as representatives, as Con
fressmen. And now the dark and terrible
hadow that has eclipsed the glory of our
leroic States begins to move Northward,
rhe apprehension of danger creates friends
br us among our enemies. And wc, if thc
Radicals remain iu power, have nothing to
ixpect but new exactions, new oppressions
md new villanies-beggars on horseback,
elons in charge or thc public purse ?ind the
?word of the State, armed mercenaries rav
igmgliko wolves, and at their owu fierce
vulcusiing into fetters and dungeons thc
noblest of the land. While the North is
awaking, let us also read aright the aus?
pices rf the present and forecast the future.
Lei- us resolve to command that future-in?
spired by hope and generous grief and lofty
indignation, and cheerfully paying whatever
price U needed to redeem us from oppression
Playing at Government.
The want of homogeneity in the so-called
Constitutional party in thtf'FreBch Chambers
has already exposed M. Ollivier and his col?
leagues to serious inconvenience. Faithful
to the general ideas of the fragments of par?
ties which he represents, the French premier
introduced a proposition to abandon the
miserable system of official candidatures,
which has stood so long in the way of a free
expression of the wishes of the people. In
this M. Ollivier should certainly have had
the hearty support of the Liberal and Radi?
cal members; but no sooner had the Cham?
ber acquainted itself with the question than
the Right, or Conservative wmg, moved the
order of the day in support of the old official
system. And this was followed by a decla?
ration from the Left, or Liberals, that they
would support the Ministry because they
were pledged to electoral freedom. And for
no other reason. Nor do they seem to have
acted up to their grudging pledge; for when
the question was taken the motion of the
Right was adopted by a large majority.
This is considered equal to a vote of want
of confidence in the Ministry, and it is not
surprising that the Emperor should be dis?
satisfied with his Cabinet, "inconsequence of
its inability to recoucile conflicting parties. "
There is not, at this time, any body of
men large enough and strong enough to sus?
tain a MijjUtry which shall represent, and
join togeU -r, the two extremes of Personal
Absolutism and Parliamentary Government
There ia a strong Radical party which de?
mands a Republic. There is an enormously
strong Imperialist party, backed by the Con?
servatives in the cities and towns, which
demands order, peace and security, and be?
lieves that these can best be had while Na?
poleon rules in name as well as fact There
is no third party, and M. Ollivier cannot
stand for an hour of his own force and power.
Thc coalition which sustains him to-day may
desert him to-morrow. He and his col?
leagues bear the whole responsibility and
have none of the rewards of success. And
at this time current events point to a speedy
upsetting of the brand new Parliamentary
Government and a return to the familiar
Imperialism which usc has made endurable,
and under which France and the French
have prospered beyond all expectation.
THE Walhalla Courier says that thc taxes
collected in Oconee County amount to
twenty-eight thousand six hundred dollars
in cash, with a delinquent list sufficient to
foot up a sum total of thirty thousand dol?
lars. In 1859 thc State tax for Pickens Dis?
trict, (Oconee and Pickens Counties,) was
$5908. The real and personal property of
the two counties are about equal in value,
giving $3000 as the old State tax for what
is now Oconee. If we add 50 per cent, for
county tax, wo have thc tax of Oconee for
1859 at $4500, against $30,000 in 1869. The
people of Oconee should be ripe for the Citi?
SENATOR LESI.IR talks sense occasionally.
In the Senate, on Saturday, he said t hat the
present session of the -Legislature had al?
ready cost $200,000, and that if thia were
New York, where legislators are held to a
strict responsibility for their conduct, not
one of the honorable senators would ever
sit in that honorable body again. And more
to the like effect, and as true as truth.
SENATOR LESLIE will not. tell why he re?
signed the post of Land Commissioner, and
there is something wrong somewhere. If
Mr. Leslio is guilty of improper conduct, let
tho State know it; but if he is the scapegoat
of the sins of others, he should not suffer in
silence. Who will bring light out of all this

opinion of the land commission, although

now publishing, is even an improvement upon
its predecessors, In thc variety of its contents
and the number of Its illustrations, to which
latter particular attention is now given. In
the agricultural department Colonel D. Wyall
Aiken treats of "Sorghum and its Uses," while
Low Middling discusses thc Preparation of
Land for Colton, and General Hammond gives
some valuable hinLs about fertilizers. Then
follow some extracts from the lecture of Pro?
fessor Shepard on Sources of Plant-Food, with
papers on Sisal Hemp for Florida, aud Rice
Culture on River Lands, and the Value of Sci?
ence to the Farmer-this last thc conclusion
of an address by that veteran agriculturist,
Daniel Lee, M. D. There are also articles on
thc Pineapple, (Illustrated,) on Evergreen
.Grass, and on the Castor Bean and Bene Seed.
In thc horticultural department are articles on
thc Walter Grape, (illustrated.) on the Straw
ber.y, (Illustrated,) and ou the Beet. The
other articles in this aud the poultry and cook?
ing departments arc too numerous to be
named, and as valuable as they are numerous.
The report of Mr. J. M. Crawford, of 39G0
pounds of cotlon raised on one acre of poor
land, is highly interesting, and an utilitarian
correspondent suggests a new brauch of indus?
try for the South, i. e. frogs ! One correspon?
dent suggests to thc planters of Beaufort that
if they have land to give away they can get
good citizens in their own State. This is worth
looking into. First let us make the best of

Lee for dwelling houses are well worth con?
