-Nlssage Saget has been declared president
elect of Hay ti by the National Assembly for the
term of four years. The Inauguration ceremonies
took place on Sunday, tho 20th ult., commencing
at 4 o'clock in the morning. ' At 6 the troops took
np their position at the palace, with two batteries
of artillery. At 8 the otUclals or the government
assembled at the palace, and at 9 the president
elect, escorted by the Provisional Vice-president
Domlugueand general oftlsers, aides-dc-cam p.
Ac, arrived. A salute was thou flied, and a de?
putation from the Legislature waited upon Saget.
An address wai made by the President or the
Senate, and at its close another salute or one
hundred guns was tired. A procer jion was thou
formed und marched to the chu-ch, where a Te
Deum was chanted, and a salute or seventeen
guns fired. Thc ceremonies being over, thc pro?
cession returned to the palace. The antecedents
ol Pres'deni Saget are such as to justify the hope
that his government will bc distinguished by an
enlightened and liberal policy. He ls nearly
seventy years or age, and though not a man of
remarkable Intellectual ability, is endowed with
a fair share or good sense, and is or a very hu?

The municipal elections nt Camden yes?
terday resulted in the sweeping success of
the Citizens' Parly, who elected their full
ticket by a small majority. This is the first
time that Citizens' Parly candidates have
been put in the field, and it is a good omen
fur the future that victory perches on our
banners. At the Presidential election in
1SCS, Camdeu gave a Radical majority of
votes. Now, the friends of good gov
vernment, the party of Honesty and Equal
Rights, defeat their opponeuts by a majority
of fourteen. This has been accomplished by
a union of all the gooil people of Camden on
tile Lroad platform of the Citizens' Parly.
The Annual Parade of thc Fire De?
It would be difficult to rate too highly the
value of the Annual Parade of the Fire De?
partment, as a means of maintaining the
efficiency and public spirit of which our fire?
men are justly proud. As a holiday, it is
the most widely observed public festival of
the year, and the generous emulation which
thc Annual Parade excites, and the desire of
each company to stand well among its fel?
lows, have gone very far to uphold the nu?
merical strength and the mechanical skill
of the department. This department has
been the salvation of Charleston in rnany an
?lour of need. What it has alreadyflone it
may be required to do again. And lhere is
not a sober thinking man in Charleston who
would not see, with g'&re solicitude, any ac?
tion, or inaction, which might impair the
strength of any portion of the department,
or which could detract in any way from its
At the Aunual Parado which takes
place on thc 27th of April, the different col?
ored companies will form in line, for the first
time, as a part of the City Fire Department.
Until the incorporation of the colored com?
panies, these had no representation in the
Doard of Firemusters, nor did they parade
with the white companies. But the law and
the fact have changed all this. The colored
companies are now an integral part of the
Fire Department, and will be inspected on the
27lh of April with the white companies. But
soinetbiug more has been customary than
ihe formal inspection which the law requires. ,
There has been tho parade through our
streets, and the "playing off" for prizes,
which might be the marks of superior lleet
ness and dexterity. And we cannot doubt
that the same laudable feeling which led thc
Board of Firemasters to recognize ungrudg?
ingly the legal rights of the presidents of the 1
colored companies, will induce them to exert
themselves to make tho coming parade one
in which all shall join, and which every com?
pany in the department may regard with
pleasure und satisfaction.
The white companies, generally, have not
yet decided to what extent they will take
part in the parade; but at a meeting of the
.-Elna Fire Engine Company, held on Mon?
day, it was resolved that this company would
join in the parade in the usual manner.
Similar action will, we presume, be luken at
once by thc other white companies, and we
trust that the Board of Firemasters will make
speedily what arrangements may be neces?
sary. Thc prizes for the Colored companies,
as well as those for the white companies,
should, if possible, bc especially handsome,
and thc number of firemen in line, of white
and of colored, should be the very largest
that Charleston has ever seen.
Killed with Kindness.
Tiie message of President Grant in rela?
tion to American shipping, is a plain recog- 1
nition of the fact that thc trude and com?
merce of thc world have already passed j
away from the United States, and that the
American Hag is swept from the seas, not !
bySuniters and Alabamas, but by protec- ;
lion tariffs and unwise legislation. The
Congressional committee on the causes of ?
Lhe reduction of American tonnage, to whose
report the President refers, propose that
lumber, metal and ircn, used for the con?
struction of steam or sail vessels, built in
the United States, shall receive a drawback
equal to the duties paid upon such materi?
al. Ship stores and coal, in like manner,
would come iu free of daly; and every 1
American vessel engaged for more than six
inoiiihs in the year, in the carrying trade
between the United States and foreign
ports, would receive a subsidy varying
from one dollar and fifty cents a ton for .
sail vessels, to four dollars a ton for steum- '
ers running to European ports.
But the drawbacks on materials arc limit?
ed to twelve and fifteen dollars a ton, and
this will not balance the difference of cost
between ships built in this country and ships 1
built on the Clyde. It will give us cheaper
vessels for our coasting trade, which we are
in no danger of losing; but it will not enable
us to recover the tonnage which has passed
away from us on the ocean. And while com?
mittees are vainly trying to discover nos?
trums for what hos only one cure, Free
Trade and an Open Market, the shipping
trade of England is increasing with astound?
The Liverpool docks arc one of the won?
ders of the commercial world. Their capa?
city for the accommodation of steam ship?
ping is 1,201,000 tons; and yet so insulfi
cient is this for thc rush of business, that a
new branch dock is to be added lo those
magnificent structures that now adorn thc
Mersey. The Cunard Company i3 to in?
crease its fleet o? twenty steamers by four
new vessels, of 3500 tons burden each ; the
Inman line bas lately added two more ships
to its former fifteen ; the Guion line, with six
steamers on tho station.-has two more of 3000.
tons burden each upon the stocks ; thc Nation?
al Steam Company is to add four vessels of
4500 tons each to its present fleet of eight,
and thc Southern Steamship, a new compa?
ny, shortly puts on live vessels aggregating
10,000 ton3. This suddeu swelling of thc
forty-nine steamers heretofore plying iuto a
navy of sixty-six-an increase of over 33j
per cent.-is for the trade between Liver?
pool and the United States alone. There is
yet to be taken into account the case of the
Montreal Ocean Steamship Company, which,
to its seventeen vessels of 46,000 tons bur?
den, is Boon to add two steamers more.
And now for South America, Thc Pacific
Steam Navigation Company has had four
ships trading to Rio Janeiro, Montevideo,
and Valparaiso, but now raises its fleet at
one bound to nine. The Brazilian aud Uiver
Platte line, the Liverpool and Pernambuco,
and the Para and Maranham, new compa?
nies, Bwell the South American fleet to
twenly-four large ships, five-sixths of them
just on. Then comes the West Indian line,
which runs np the total of steam shipping from
Liverpool to the New World te very close
on to one hundred large ships, built and
Liverpool does not stop here. There is
the African Royal; the Bombay and Bengal;
the Calcutta via the Cape; tho Indian via
Suez, or rather several lines already operat?
ing on this route; and the various Mediterra?
nean lines, aggregating from eighty to one
hundred more steamships, most of thom of
the largest class. With this flVet of near two
humlred magnificent ocean steamers, no
wonder that Liverpool needs to enlarge her
No port in the United States is troubled
in this way. We are ' 'protected" out of thc
reach of any such happy contingency. '
The cn craw aud Grtcmburo' Railroad.
We are informed that the Legislature of
North Carolina has removed all restrictions
as to the gauge of the North Carolina Cen?
tral Railroad, and that the company's pros?
pects, already bright, are growing brighter
Thc proposed line runs from Greensboro',
North Carolina, to Clicrnw, South Carolina,
and when finished, will complete an air
line route from New England to the Atlan?
tic coast. Passengers can then take the
cars and run through from Richmond to
Charleston in le3S than eighteen hours, or
from Washington to Charleston in less than
twenty-one hours. The Greensboro' Road is
about one hundred miles long, and can bc
constructed and equipped for 53,000,000.
Up to this time, the friends of ihe new
project have met with great encouragement.
They have been warmly welcomed along the
line of road, and ure now engaged in enlist?
ing thc support of the cities and capitalists
to the north of us. From Charleston they
expect some help, and it is evident that, if
any scheme of the kind is of any value, the
Greensboro' connection must be of vast im?
portance to this city.
The Charleston directors can probably
surest a way of helping the work along,
and they may certainly couut upon thc cor?
dial assistance of the South Carolina press.

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of thc public to our superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we tirst In?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description or their merits. *c
There ls hardly a elly or tow- of any note in the
country into WlliCP Vue.v have not found their
way, 'nie reason of this widespread popularity
and dally uicrea*lng demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth?
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day. we have still further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that tlicy stand without a rival. Onr Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor, lt is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think lt thc best that Ls made, at least,
this li the decision of thc best Judges in thc conn
try. We don't pretend to compete In price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which arc really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
