pulated into well-flavored botter, and duly
stamped with the likeness of a cow.
-A meeting was held in Baltimore a few
nights ago, to completo thc organization of a
company tor the erection of an Academy of
Music in that city. Dr. J. Hanson Thomas
was elected president, and Israel Cohen, Esq.,

pointed to solicit subscriptions to the capital

shares of the par value of filly dollars each.
The name of John E. Owens, the famous come?

-The upcdcspeed" is thc name of thc latest
Yankee notion for the purpose of increasing
man's natural speed. Thc velocipede having
played ont, except as a device to increase
labor, the "p'edespeed" comes in. It consists
of two wheels, fourteen or Alleen inches In
diameter,"one of which is attached firmly to
each foot by mcan3 of a stirrup-like contriv?
ance, and, to those who understand it, pos?
sesses all the capabilities of the skate. To use
it requires skill acquired only by practice, but,
when acquired, there is skating the year
round-so says the Inventor.
-A New York letter of Tuesday says: "Mer?
chants continue to complain of the backward?
ness of the spring trade; not one particular
branch, but all. The Western dealers are buy?
ing sparingly, while Southern orders, as a gen?
eral thing, are said to be much under thc libe?
ral mark which the profitable cotton crop
seemed to warrant. Many are inclined to at?
tribute the existing stagnation to the uncci
tunlj which attaches to the future, as the re?
sult of the various financial measures pending
in Congress; but whatever the cause, there eau
be no gainsaying the effect, which is visible on
every side."
-The New York Herald of Wednesday, in
its stock market report, says : "The Southern
list yesterday was steady and dull at the
boards, but became rather active, and closed
strong in later dealings on thc street. Thc
Virginias and Louisianas reacted from the de?
pression and decline of last week, while the
new South Carolinas were very firm. The
new Tennessees showed considerable movc
menL In the North Carolina? the new bonds
were a trifle better in consequence of the adr
JC-.rnment.oi" the Legislature and postpone?
ment of repudiation measures such as were
adopted in the case of the "special tax" issues.
South Carolina sixes closed at 89a90; do. new
(July,) 84a85; do. (October,) 85a87."
-An Incident which goes far to snow UK
different degrees of respect accorded by Un
volunteers of Havana to persons of difieren i
nationalities, occurred in that city on tho trial
of the murderer of Greenwald. Mrs. Dun io; >.
who happened to be an eye-witness of the o:ii
rage, when giving her testimony In court, wa
arrayed in a dress profusely adorned with I ha
very color-sky-blue-which was so obnoxi ui
to the volunteers as to lead to Greenwald'* a
s wslnatlon. After she had testified that Mi
persons she saw committing the outrage o
the unfortunate and defenceless man wore th. ?
uniform? and cockades of the volunteers, the
judge, who lt seems was alarmed for the per?
sonal safety of Mrs. Dunlop, offered her a guard
of regulars, by whom she might be escorted
from the court to thc consulate. Mrs. Dunlop's
reply was significant. "Thank you, slr," she
said; "you certainly forget that I am an Eng?
lishwoman." Site left the court unattended.
-Recent earthquakes in Ecuador, Souili
America, have been quite severe. On thc 13th
of December a shock of extraordinary violence
occurred; the Inhabitants became terrified,
rushed from their dwellings, fell on their
knees and implored for mercy. Several limes
since many shocks have taken place, but
none created great alarm until tho 2d Instant,
when there was one of unusual severity about
midday; but tho most terrifying one of all
took place on the ?d instant, when, between
Pedernals and Cabo Passado, the earth was
seen lo open and emit a hillock of stones from
thirty to forty feet high. Behind or near the
spot where this occurred stood an earth hill
about sixty feet high, which suddenly and en?
tirely disappeared. Around the base of *he
hillock is a circular pond of salt water, and
for a long distance surrounding that, the
earth, which before was hard and solid, be?
came soft and spongy. The inhabitants of the
locality are all positively terror-stricken, and
no inducement will take them within a very
long distance of the spot.
Alabama Speaks-Thc Citizens' Party.
We print in another column a letter from
an Influential citizen of Alabama, who hopes
that the action of Soutli Carolina in forming
the CITIZENS' PARTY will bring about a simi?
lar movement in his own State and through?
out the South. Our correspondent believes
that under the banner of the CITIZENS' PAR?
TI-, with the watchwords of EQUAL RIGHTS
AND AX HONEST AND ABLE GOVERNMENT, Ala?
bama, South Carolina, and every Southern
State, may press forward to certain victory
a victorj', be it understood, that they cannot
achieve except by the common-sense policy
of doing the best that wc can for ourselves,
and giving our general support to that party
which promises and does the most for the
advantage and well-being of our people.
Thc Question of Immigration.
Thc whole of the middle and upper region
of South Carolina is looking anxiously for
the arrival of tito white immigrants, who
shall till the now barren acres, and take part
in building up the workshops and factories
which are justly expected to do LO much for
the development and growth of the State.
In the low country wc must remain depen?
dent, for the most part, on othor than Cau?
casian labor; but in common with the wl-ole
South, we have a deep and lasting interest
in the encouragement of practical plans
for securing white immigration. Different
schemes are proposed, and no two men have
exactly thc same ideas upon Hie subject.
It may, nevertheless, be taken for granted
that two considerations are necessary. 1.
That thc immigrants shall be brought here
with safety and with ease. 2. That they
shall have tho certainty that their industry
will soon enable them to become, if they de?
sire, the owners of the land which they till.
These general principles must, it would
seem, control all plans of immigration, and
we are confident that a discussion of the
subject by persons representing the different
interests, and having a knowledge of the
strong and the weak points of our situation,
would end in the preparation of a general
system for the government of tho whole
State. We have already at least one suc?
cessful immigration society iii South Caro?
lina, but we need a score, and there should
be a chief office with thc facilities for taking
charge of the immigrants until they go for?
ward to their destination. AU these things
can be arranged, and au excellent opportu?
nity for so doing will be had at the Conven?
tion of tho County Agricultural Societies
which will be held in this city next month.
At thi3 convention thc experience and in?
formation of the whole State can be repre?
sented, and the great question of immigra?
tion can be thoroughly and deliberately dis?
cussed. Tiie subject i3 one of va-t import?
ance, ami we trust that tho counties which
liave not yet appointed delegates to tbe May
convention will do so at once.

T.'io Police Force.
At the last meeting of the City Council an
ordinance was introduced for the regulation
of the police force, Ita object being to keep
the cost within the amount appropriated by
Council for that department. For some rea?
son the ordinance was withdrawn, but its
scope ?3 shown ia the following table of the
cost of llic department for a year, according
lo tha new scale:
1 Captain.$ 1300
2 Lieutenantslat$1200. 240')
2 Sergeants at $800. moo
70 Privates at $720. 00,100
4 Doorkeepers as SC09. 2 ion
2 Hostlers at S600. i?00
7 Steeplemen at $36$. 2:.2?
3 Daymen at $300 . DOO
1 Carpenter. 720
1 Clerk. 900
6 Horses at$180. 10S0
$C?,62?
1 Lieutenant Detectives. 1000
4 Privates. 2880
Total .$C9,500
The amount appropriated for tho police
force is 370,000, and it was not, we pre?
sumo, expected to pay ont of that amount
the expenses of tiie detective force. Yet it is
plain enough that we can have a police and
detective force, sufficiently strong for all our
purposes, for an amount of seventy thousand
dollars, which is undoubtedly fully much as
the city can afford to pay. At its present
strength, thc police force cannot be kept up
for $70,000 a year, and it is the duty of
Council to change the organization and bring
it down to the specified standard. If Coun?
cil will not do this, the public will be forced
to the conclusion that all this talk about re?
trenchment and reform is nothing more
than moonshine.
WE PRLVT in supplement form to-day the
rules and regulations for the government of
the spring exhibition of the Charleston
County Agricultural and Horticultural Asso?
ciation, which opens to the public on May 3.
A large number of premiums and prizes are
oT?r.jd to the exhibitors, and the gathering
promises to be one of rare importance and
interest.
THE work goes bravely on ! At a meeting
of CITIZENS held in Columbia on Thursday
to prepare for the municipal elections,..a
committee pf ten rehile voters and ten
colored voters was appointed lo canvass
?.acb ward. Camden is running a straight
out CITIZENS' PARTY ticket fer in'.en 1 nt and
wardens for the ensuing year.
Judge Orr and National Politic?.
One of the mo3t magnificent aigus- of the
times is an editorial in the New 'York
Herald, calling on President Grant to re?
construct bis Cabinet and give the Hon.
James L. Orr a place therein. Thc Herald
says: "Thc tim?is not far off when. Gene
"ral Grant will have lo reorganize the Cabi
"not. The present one i3. weak and sec?
cional. With tho restoration of the South
"some one should be taken from that part
"of thc country. Sucli a man, for example,
"as Geuera! On-, of South Carolina. With
"his large experience, thorough national
"views and great ability, be would be a
"valuable Cabinet Minister at the present
"time. His appointment^, too, would go
"far to heal our sectional difficulties."
Ccu rc nt Literature.
TUB TU'KAI. CAROLINIAN.
Thc April number of this magazine, in va?
riety as well as In merit, is some distance in
advance ol' any of its predecessors, and wc
note with pleasure the breadth of view and
catholicity of spirit which mark tho expres?
sions of editorial opinion and the letters of thc
numerous correspondents. The illustrations
arc excellent, and the typography without a 1
blemish. Of the contents of the April number
it is sufficient to say that the different articles
cover thc subjects of agriculture, horticulture,
stock and natural history, labor and immigra
1 tion, mining aud rural architecture. Under
each head the articles are numerous and o? |
great practical importance. The editorial de?
partment is especially interesting.
As it now stands, tho "Rnral Carolinian" is,
to tho Southerner the most valuable and
trustworthy agricultural magazine published
on this continent; while in beauty of appear?
ance and cheapness, of price, no less than
inthego-ahead-alivcncss or its proprietors, it
has no superior.
The "Rural Carolinian" is published by
Walker, Evans Jc Cogswell, and D. Wyatt
Aiken, of this city. Price $2 a year.
HAMMER AND RAPIER. By John Esten Cooke,
author ot "Surry of Eagle's Nest," "lilli to
Hill," Jtc. New York : Carleton.
This ls a series or sketches of thc most dra?
matic scenes of tho Conreilcrato war, begin?
ning with victorious Manassas and ending
willi thc surrender at Appomattox. The tale
ls told with the lcrvor and graphic spirit com?
mon to the war-writings or Major Cooke, who,
as a staff officer of Gcucral Stuart, enjoyed ex?
cellent opportunities or beholding tho inner
wheels or thc grand military machine known
as thc Army ol' Northern Virginia. There ls
some sadness In reading of thc old and happy
days when the Southern steel was bright and
legions or brave men were battling nobly rot
honor and for country; but sad though tho
retrospect be, it will quicken tho pulse and
stir the heart orthe "old Rob'" toread the vivid
words which paint the glories and the dolours
or those who wore the gray. They who were
not or us and with us will at least respect and
admire. One word more. Major Cooke is not
given to criticism or carping, and there is
nothing in his book that should offend thc
daintiest Northern car.

FLAVORING EXTRACTS.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.
GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub
He, we deem it unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy descrlmion,of their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a elty br town of any note in tte
country Into which they have not found then
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
uud dally Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts or the day, wo have still further improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lle ve t hat they stand without a rival. Oar Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor, lt ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think lt the best that ls mode, at least,
this ls the' decision or the best Judges In the coun?
try. Wc don't pretend to compete In price with
many or the so-called Flavoring Extracts or the
dav. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving or thc name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.

Many dyspeptics, who cannot tolerate fresh,
light cakes when made with yeast, can eat them
