UPLANDS VS. SEA ISLANDS.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SEWS.
EDISTO ISLAND, April C.
As some intormation about our crops now
being planted in this part of our State may bc ac?
eptable. I will state what I know of the experi?
ence of the planters herc during tho last season,
aud their Intentions for this seasott, and of my
It may safely bc assorted that very few of us
have cleared our expenses in the cultivation or
sea island cotton last year, and still fewer have
made any profit. Only those of us who could
get all or their crop to market early were able to
do either of these. I will give my own *xn?ri
ence, which can show what has been that of the
majority of sea island planters. 1 planted one
hundred and Qfty acres lu sea Islands, on land
which, before the war, yielded an average of one
hundred and thirty pounds per acre; but last
summer, on account or the caterpillars and
drought, thc yield averaged only eighty-eight
pounds per acre, giving forty-two bags, which
were sent to Charleston in three lots, costing me
about eighty cents per pound here. Those lots
were sold respectively at eighty two cents, sixty
eight cents and forty-eight cents per pound, an
average of only sixty-three cents per pound, ex?
clusive of expenses there, giving a loss of not less
than nineteen cents per pound on my whole crop,
say about $2500. I had calculated upon a yield of
about one hundred pounds per acre, and a price
of about seventy-five to eighty cents per pound,
which would have cleared me about $1000 above
all my expenses.
This is the third season of just such experience
with me, and now I have determined to give up
this losing business and try short cotton. I am
now preparing one hundred acres for uplands,
and wiil not plant any sea Islands at all. My?
lands will yield three hundred pounds of short
cotton per acre, which will mature before cater
pillars can injure it, and even at twenty-one
cents per ponud, will give sixty-three dollars per
acre while my class or long cotton, even at Arty
cents per pound, would give only forty-four dol
iars per acre, even ir this summer is as mir in
every respect as the last. The cost of cultivation
of short cotton is also not so great as long cotton.
I advise all of my friends and neighbors to plant
short cotton, and give ap sea Islands entirely, and
many of them will do so. I do not believe
that more than one-hair as much long staple will
be planted this spring as last, for men cannot
contiuuc to lose money all thc time; un cud must
come, sooner or later.
It is well known that our lands do net suit up?
lands so well as sea islands, but we have to sub?
stitute .'or the latter some staple that will pay us.
Sugar cultivation must take the position once
held by long cotton here, when our people, or
some others, can have ?he capital to invest in it
and furnish the costly machinery; out our people
may as well realize the fact at once, that sea
island couoa can no longer bc cultivated here
with profit. PLASTER.
"Thc Shocking Tragedy Ut Kings
TO TUE EDITOR OF THE NEW?.
I beg to remind yon and your readers that there
are two sides to all questions. Oue side or the so
called "Shocking Tragedy at Klng6tree" has
been put rorth lu the papers with all thc earnest?
ness characteristic of a d?termination to take thc
lives of three men, right or wrong, for that of oue
who acted in such a manner as legitimately to
forfeit his own life.
But without reflecting upon the dead, or mak?
ing charges in advance of a judicial investigation
upon the living. I beg leave to remind the reader
that Mr. Brown, the so-called murderer, has uot
been heard-that he shonld not bc condemned
without a beering-that he is wiliiug to have, in?
deed he courts, a judicial investigation of his con?
duct before a jury or his countrymen, when he
reels satisfied he will bc able to justiry his cause;
and, in the meantime, he thinks it very unjust
that public opiuiou should be prejudiced against
him by parading, in the newspapers, a one-sided
view or the ca*e, when, too, he ls unable, from thc
wound received in tin connie;, to present bis side
of thc question.
The unfortunate difllcuity between him and Mr.
Martin, it is true, lin? Sud u bud termination,
which no one regrets the necessity for more thau
Mr. Brown himself; but 1: will be remembered by
those who knew anything of the facts, and are
willing to look at them without prejudice, that
Mr. Martin first acted in suth a manner as to
blast the character of Brown altogether, unless
he had done something in defence of it; and sure?
ly, ir it be true, that a man may take life in dc
ience of lire, he may take lire in derence or that
which ls dearer than ure, viz: character.
I would state that Mr. Brown is not dead as re?
ported, though recovering slowly. He asks jus?
tice and that is all. FiatjusUUa, Ac.

THE COTTON TRABE OF CHARLES?
A Broad Hint from a Good Source.
TO TXIE EDITOR OF TUE NEWS.
COLUMBUS, MISS., April 4.
Of thc thousands of bales of cotton made in
Western, Middle and Northern Mississippi, much
goes to Memphis, thence to Louisville and
other more Northern markets, and by far thc
greater portion of thc remninder is sent down
the river to New Orleans. The cotton factors of
Vicksburg know this, and arc therefore making
strenuous efforts to divert this trade at leastITom
Northern markets to their own "City of Hills;"
and to effect this end, they have addressed & cir?
cular to their planting friends, urging upon (bein
to patronize their own market, build up their own
city, ami encourage that channel of trade through
which a bale of cotton reaches the Fpindles of
Manchester quicker by odds than Through any
other route, to wit-from Vicksburg to Liverpool
ria Charleston, & C. This address, appealing to
tba planters of Louisiana, Arkansas aud Missis,
sippl, says :
Teere are but two places where cotton is sold to
liny extent for export to points of consumption
in the colton region embraced in the nortnern
portion of Tennessee, the northern, western,
southern and middle portions of Mississippi, all
of Arkansas and Louisiana, and the eastern por?
tion of Texas, lo wit: New Orleans and Memphis.
Thc portions named produce more than half o'
the total crop, aud they might add that in a few
years the probabilities would be that they would
produce two-thirds of lt. Vicksburg ls situated
in the centre of this great cotton belt and also of
the more valuable long staple cottons. Admit?
ting that lt has no advantages over the two
places named, by multiplying the number of
markets for so large a district of country,
you benefit yourselves by Increasing thc number
uf buyers and competitors. Epidemics may visit
one place and not thc other. A local financial, or
other disturbing cause may exist at one and not
at the other. Besides, the long staple cottons
should have an Independent market, where the
prices would necessarily be more remunerative to
The committee inform ns that a railroad will
soon bc in operation, which will bring cotton to
Vicksburg from the western and nothern por?
tions of Louisiana, while her railroad east ls bring?
ing iu trains with it for sale or shipment and car?
rying back trains with it, seeking thc outer world
through the ports of Charleston arid Savannah.
Arc the factors of Charleston alive to these
efforts? They should remember that the com?
mercial world are publishing the fact, that their
sister city Is surpassing Charleston lu her ship?
ments; the Gcoigia Central Railroad is monopo?
lizing for Savannah dally more and more of
Charleston's legitimate trade; an alr-ltne railroad
is being most rapidly completed from Brunswick,
Ga., to Albany, and chartered roads are now
being built from Albany, Ga., to Eufaula, Ala.,
and thence to Montgomery, all of which will be
lo rnnning order and making almost an alr-llne
from Vicksburg to Brunswick, Ga., iu less than
two years; and also, that there Is on foot another
i lr-llne railroad project from Vicksburg to Ely
ton, Ala., aud thence in direct Hue to Chattanoo?
ga and on to Norfolk, Va.
Ttiese enterprises should stimulate the City of
Charleston, and I trust no efforts will be spared
to secure at least a due share or thc shipments of
cotton from this fertile valley. In ten years'
time Mississippi State will produce 2,000,000 bales
or cotton. Thc productive capacity or thc State is
only limited by the quantity and quality of
A mighty lever to aid Charleston should be her
phosphate beds. Every bag or this fertilizer
shipped should Induce the return freight of a
bale or cotton. New York, Philadelphia, Balti?
more, New Orleans, Cincinnati and Louisville fer?
tilizers are creeping Into thc State everywhere.
I have never yet seen n bag or Charleston phos?
phates In Mississippi, and 1 have been all over thc
The address above alluded to goes on further
A shipment or cotton from Vicksburg to Liver?
pool via Charleston is as cheap as rrom New Or?
leans to Liverpool. This being thc case, buyers
can pay as much for cotton at Vicksburg as at
New orleans. Thc difference in rrelglit and lt su
rance, and thc saving or luteres: us between a
shipment rrom Charleston and one rrom New Or?
leans to Liverpool being enough to pay the freight
from Vicksburg to Charleston. A bale of ?otton
shipped rrom Vicksburg to Charleston, a distance
ora little more than 600 miles, reaches the latter
city in live or six days, while one shipped rrom
Vicksburg to New Orleans, thc mouth or the Mis?
sissippi River nnd around thc capes ol Florida, a
distance or 1600 miles, is tineen or twenty days
on thc passage, with an iusuraucc of two per
cent tacked ou.

A lady correspondent writes from Paris:
Thc 23d t was present at court, and attended a
grand ball at the Tuileries. The presentation to
thc Emperor and Empress is informal, and quite
unlike that to the Queen of England, where you
arc obliged to have a train, wear feathers, kneel,

aud the Emperor llrst, and then the Empress,
pass along in front, and as each name is men?

The Empress was very beautifully dressed In

the court suits are very incoming, mid help to
make the scene brilliant and gay. After the pre?

I danced thc first set with a Russian genaral.who
was all covered with decoratlous from his head to
his feet, but who tore my uew dress fearfully

watching the dancing until 12 o'clock, trueu they
went to supper aud then retired.

41A Rejoicer in thc Restoration of the Rod"
says: 1 call myself by tills title because 1 do most
nrmly believe that a great many or the acknowl?
edged evils or the present age-utidutirul chil?
dren, and reckless, heedless young men and
women-arise rroui so many parents and teachers
having of late years neglected a most essential
duty in not using sufllctentand proper corp: ral
chastisement. Dut from all I hear a great reac?
tion is taking place in this respect. And though
there may be many loving mothers, like Tiny,
who shrink from it, yet I rejoice that true love ls
being more shown In duty triumphing over sen?
timent, and that the rod-the birch rod-ls re?
gaining Its Old place both among boys and ch id:
so much so, that I believe lt ls a very rare thing
to lind a preparatory school for boys-especially
those conducted by ladies-where the rod is not
more or less used.
BOY winrrtNG BY WOMEN.
I know one most excellent school of this kind In
Kentish Town, London, where there are boys
rrora six to rourtuen, and where the very kind and
good ladies who manage lt (?nd WHO have always
more applications ror admission than they can re?
ceive.) administer the rod in a way which, lr a
Scotch mother conld witness, would eifectually
negative her ideas or ladles not being able to birch
a boy worth mentioning arter he ceased to be a
little boy. I know four or their boys who after?
wards went to Eton, where they suidected them?
selves to the birch-and I suppose Eton birching
is tolerably severe-yet they tuouglit it not near?
ly so bad as that or Miss-. I will instance
two cases among many where their system an?
swered lu a remarkable manner. One was a boy
who had Deon to a large preparatory school at
Clapham, where "corporal punLshmcnt was dis?
pensed With." This boy, at twelve, was a per?
iod pest, and by great good luck his parents
heard or Miss -'s most excellent school,
ami sent him io it. Ile very soon began his
bad ways. Miss-tried at flrst gentle mea?
sures, but with no success; and so after many of?
fences she ordered him lo lils room, let him walt
by himself Tor half an hour, and then cn'ered.
holding the birch rod behind her so that he should
not see lt. She spoke to him very gravely and
lovingly, and then told him she was going to
birch him, at the same time showing him thc rod,
and bidding him prepare himself for punishment,
(as she considers making tlie boys prepare them?
selves to bc whipped half the battle.) Ile stoutly
refused whereupon, after considerable delay, she
left bim for half an hour or more. At the end of
thnt time she again returned, bringing a cane as
well as the rod. ile still refused to prepare him
seir. whereupon, spite of his struggles, she took
orr his jacket, and then gave him a sound cania z
across his shoulders, lie soon promised to do as
she told him. She then laid the cane aside; and
whet he had taken o fi* lils trousers, and had
tucked his shirr, at ber bidding, under his
waistcoat, aud laid himself across the little
bed with his person bare, she told him she
should birch him now for refusing to obey
her orders, and that the original punish?
ment would be deferred. She then took the rod,
and, arter five or six well-delivered strokes, the
boy, after trying to protect himself with lils hands,
jumped up. She again took the cane and gave
him another caning; and thcu he Anally, and
once tor all. Giitniiittcd, and my good friend was
allowed to finish her birching: and BO far had
she masrered him that when the next day another
of the Miss-ordered him to his room to re?
ceive the original punishment-ror the offence
for which her Mster was to have administered
punishment the day before-he prepared himself
ror the rod exactly as she told him, und took his
birching at lier hands with wonderful submis?
sion. During his stay at thi3 school (and his pa?
rents prolonged it as much as possible) he had
many similar private Interviews with the Miss
-, In which the birch roil bore a prominent
part. Hut his life now bears the fruit of his train?
ing then, and it is not possible to (Ind a more ex?
emplary or promising young man; and I have no
hesitation in saying that lils present promise is
mainly owing to the firm discipline he experienced
at the hands of Miss-. Thc other case was
rather a remarkable one.

Seven yearn ago. my good friends, thc same
laities were spending tueir ciirUtnia? holidays
with a relative In yorkshire, when they had point?
ed out to them a boy ot fifteen, who was a fearful
trouble to his widowed mother, and during the
time they were visiting Yorkshire thc mother
came in the greatest distress to Hie bouse where
my friends were Staying, and told how her son hail
robbed lils uncle. Knowing thc great experleuce
of boy human nature which my friends had, they
asked thc mother to consult them; she did so,
and thc cud of it was mat the motlier determin?
ed to take lodgings for herself and her son in Kent?
ish Town, and agreed that the son should corneas
a day-boy to her school. This accordingly took
place. Tue day after he had entered the school,
his mother called, by arrangement at li o'clock,
and WHS taken into a room where were the Miss
-and her sou. lils past conduct was theu fully
brought before him. Ile was then told that he
muM expect to be severely punished, lie was
undressed by the Miss-(this was thought the
most advisable,) and then being fastened across
a short bench used for thc purpose, he received

NO KA ll I LY COMPLETE WITHOUT IT.
A relative of mine during last autumn adver?
tised for a school in which to place her daughter,
who was both "headstrong and unruly," and she
stated in the advertisement, "a school where cor?
poral punishment ls prudently administered pre?
ferred." lu reply she had letters from very many
principals of ludies' schools, of whom twenty
four stated that, they were In thc habit or using
corporal punishment lor all graver faults; some
used it also for school work; and of these seven?
teen or them specified "the birch" rod lu thc old
fashioned way" as the Instrument and mode of
punishment. I know several public institutions
for girls where thc birch rod is used, und several
more where it would bc used If tho managers had
their way in thc matter. I know one very expen?
sive school for young ladles In Kensington, where
for certain offences, whatever their age, the
young ladies arc birched us follows: Having re?
tired and put on a dress for the purpose, at nu
appointed hour the young lady to be pun?
ished knocks at the door nf Hie boudoir or
iheladyprinclp.il, who, arter serious conversa?
tion willi her, and sometimes prayer, makes her
enter her offence (always a grave one) In a
hook kept for the purpose, which she does.
The lady principal then rings the bell, and thc
matron of the establishment ls sent for, to whom
the lady principal hands fie book in which the
young lady has just eutercd lier offence, and below
which the lady principal has inserted the punish?
ment. As she bauds thc book she says, "Mrs.
-, will you be good enough to give Miss -
so many strokes (naming the number) with Hie
birch*" pointing with her Unger to the entry lu
the book. The matron takes the book and retires.
Presently a maid servant enters and says, "Mrs.
- (the matron) is ready ror Miss-." The
lady principal saving, "I hop3 this will not occur
again," bows the young lady out; and the said
yoting lady, lier heart sinking within her, knocks
at th? next door, the room where thc matron ex?
pects her. On entering she is told by the matrou
to ?ic across a narrow ottoman which occupies
Hie middle of thc room. Miss-(as a rule there
ls no refusal) docs as she ls directed, and the ma?
tron then buckles a strap, which, passing across
the culprit's waist, fastens her to the ottoman.
She then, without a word, removes the loose dress
from below her waist, selects a rod from a stand
of rods, and slowly administers on Misses-'s
liare person Hie prescribed number of strokes,
counting each as she gives it.
WHEN THF. WHIPPING IS OVER,
Inc matron releases her, signs thc punishment
book, which the birche ! youag lady takes ag du
to the principal's boudoir, who takes the book
from her, speaks kindly to her, sometimos kisses
her, always shakes her by the hand. She then
goes to her own room, resumes her own clothes,
and when she is composed enough, takes her
usual place lu the school, and nothing more ls
said. As I am sure these particulars will interest
very manr of your readers, I stiall lie jtreatly
obliged ir you will give these sonuwhat length?
ened remarks a place lu your magazine: and 1 am
quite sure, also, that thc more this subject is ftiliv
discussed the more will the advantage of gene?
rally introducing the birch rod be allowed; aid
not only I. but society at large, will have cause
to rejoice in such rcstoraiion.
WHIP EARLY ASD WHIP OFTEN.
The mother of two boys and six girls (the
youngest now twenty-five) writes: -It seems to
mc al! your correspondents omit the first princi?
ple or the usefulness of punishment liv whipping,
namely, that you cannot begin too carly. Permit
me to state my method, as it fully answered. As
babes in arni, my children were never allowed
what they screamed for, and at, the a?e of one
vear I began to chastise them, thal is to sav. at
first to give perhaps two strokes with a small
birch twig, increasing the punishment with their
age. With the various dispositions, I round great
difference in the amount or discipline required.
Two of the children were never- whlppad after
rour years old; they were the two which required
almo?: incossam punishment between one and
three. Two hoys and two girls were never whip
ped mnch after seven, or perhaps seven and a
hair. My eldest girl escaped from thc rod
at ten, but my third, who was subject to fits
of wilfulness, did not receive her last whip?
ping till some months past fourteen. At the be?
ginning, before the child can rea-on. the slightest
fault should never pass uncorrected-certainty of
the punishment ls even more Important than
severity, though I think one severe whipping
more useful than three slight ones. A bad flt of
obstinacy ls one of the most trying naughtinesses,
such as suddenly refusing to say a letter or word
perfectly known. As the flt must besnbdued, I
used to inflict a whipping at Invervals of ten min?
utes till thc word was said. Sometimes thc nt
would last an hour or even longer. For lying, as
the most deadly of all childish sins, the most
severe punishment was reserved. Whatever the
time of day. thc culprit was sent up stairs to pre?
pare for bed, and when ready was brought to me.
I had in the meantime told their father of the oc?
currence, and on the child's appearance led lt to
the study door, leaving lt to enter alone.
THF. BIBLE AND THE BIRCH.
Arter pointing ont to the child the fearful na?
ture or its ranlt. and praying with it that lt might
never again rall Into such sin, my husband, say?
ing: "All liars shall have their portion in the lake
tba: burncth with Are and brimstone," innicted
au Invariable extremely severe whipping, pro?
portionate to the agc of the delinquent, who was
then sent to bed. The unanswerable argument
in ravor or my system, ls that my dear children,
who are all married, have adopted lt In every de?
tail with their own little ones. Depend upon It,
children chastised systematically from a year old
will seldom require the rod after ten.
Florence (Oakley square) thus nnrrates her ex?
perience: Both my brother and myself v/ere spoil?
ed In thc fullest sense of the word. My father
spoiled me, and my mother spoiled my brother.
However, when I was fourteen years of age, my
parents were compelled to go abroad for mamma's
health, and I was len under the guardianship or
a maldeu aunt, who quickly decided that a strict
school was the best place for me. To a school In
Hertfordshire I was accordingly sent, the school?
mistress having been previously lurormed that I
was "a child or wayward disposition." I had not
been there a week before "the spirit or opposition
which pervaded me," as ray aunt used to term lt,
got mc into hot water, and 1 wa3 ordered to beti.
I had not been undressed many minutes when
Miss Margaret, one or the principals, came Into
the bedroom, and arter well lecturing rae on my
conduct, told me she Intended to whip me. She
then rang the bell, and one or the maids brought
a birch rod, and I was told to prepare, which I
flatly refosed to do.
II L'S'G ON TOE FEO.
As l was rebellious, the maid tied my hands to?
gether with a towel, the end ot which she fastened
toa peg high up on the wall, so that I could only
Just reach the floor with the tips or ray toes. Miss
Margaret then gave rae a severe flogging. Find?
ing i was obstinate, arter a minute or two she de?
sisted and left the room, leaving me with the
maid. I tried bard to get og the peg, but could
not. When Miss Margaret returned she asked me
whether I was sorry ? "No !" I shouted. "Then
I must whip you again," she said, stdting the ac?
tion to the word. This second whipping was too
much for my spirit, and I begged for forgiveness.
Thc rest of thc day I did not cease crying, not SJ
much from the pain as rrom mortification that I
had met my match and been conquered. Strange
as lt may seem, from that day I may say to the
present I have loved Miss Margaret, and felt her
to be a true friend. As I believe great benefit has
resulted In my case from corporal punishment, I
think it right to advocate lt, for I know from ob?
servation that lt our faults arc not corrected when
we arc young, we generally suffer lu a far harder
school wbeu we grow up.
-Mdlle. Nilsson is, according to L'Histoire,
about to be married to "a rich young man well
kuown in the financial world."
-Mr. Bouclcanlt has been offered ?20,ooo for
two hundred and fifty farewell performances In
-Among the new operas underlined for pro
duction during the coming season at Drury Lane,
in London arc Mozart's "Oca del Cairo,'' Weber's
"Abu Hassan," Wagner's "Flying Dutchman,"
and Cbernblnt's "Deux Journles."
-Mduie. Tutti docs not stand alone In thc honor
or being decorated by the Czar. Other artists
thus distinguished were and are Rublnl, Eaoiacbe,
Tamburin 1, Angelina Bosio, and lu more recent
days, Colzolarl, thc primo tenorc or the Kaltaus.
-The actress most adored at this moment in
London ls MissRousby, who plays Queen Ellzn
bhth In Tom Taylor's "Twixt Ax aud Crown."
People rave about her beautiful blue eyes, her
fair hair, her One features, her enchanting smile,
and, as an envious critic says, "everything that Is
h rs, except her husband." She ls said to bean
Admiral's daughter, a native of Jersey.
-A new lastruraent, the typophone, has been
exhibited in private circles In Paris. It ls of thc
pianoforte species, composed of ordinary diapa?
sons, tuned to the gamut and struck by piano
hammers. The sound ls described as silvery, re?
sembling a bell, and more pen erat lu g than a harp.
Altogether, the effect of a fantasia on "La Pro?
ph?te" played on this instrument is reported as
satisfactory, and In some respects powerful.
-Mr. T. W. Robertson, the dramatic author, ls
very seriously lil, and his friends greatly fear that
he may not recover. For many years th ls now
well known writer led a very struggling life, and,
Indeed, was for some time io actual poverty. His
wifo, who cheered him through lils arduous
struggles, died just before he attained success ;
and now that bis "Home," "School," and other
pieces have brought him botli rame ant) profit, he
ls struck down with pulmonary disease.
-A correspondent at Valparaiso writes that a
certain Mlle. Geraldine ls exciting the wonder
and delight of "those distant populations" by
her performance In Offenbach's operas. She hus
already appeared as the Grand Duchess, as Eury?
dice and as Boulotte. "The Valparalslans," say s
thc correspondent, "are little accustomed to these
astounding representations," but he modestly
adds, "they wish for nothing better than to get
used to them." v
-The Londan Theatrical Review says: Really
some one ought to tell the Prince of Wales that
he ls making himself supremely ridiculous by
sending, as he docs, for actors and actresses into
lils box when he visits the theatre, aud tendering
them Ids congratulations in person. At first he
used to conflue this mark of favor to managers
and manageresses. Then he extended it to lead?
ing actors cf the type or Mr. Sothern and M r.
Toole. On his last visit to thc Strand he sent for
Miss Burton and Mr. J. S. Clarke. We shall next
expect to find him seudlug for the scene-painter
and the leader of the orchestra. If his Royal
Highness wishes to confer such unusual and pub?
lic marks o'approbation, he might go on to the
stage after the termination of the pljce, and per?
mit thc curtain to be raised upon the affecting
tableau of royal gratPude-the Heir Apparent
tendering his thanks to thc entire company.
-The scanda! or female gymnastics ii exciting
the pres? and Hie authorities or London. A Ger?
man female gymnast has bjen walking ou a wire
crty feet ab ive the pit of tne Holborn Circus, with
her little child on her shoulders. To look up llfty
feet at a woman skipping about on an invisible
wire was a great delight, but to watch u mother
and child In such peril was ecstasy, and the house
was crowded nightly. The police commissioners
wrote to thc managers and requested them to
leave out the baby. Dlondin and Leotard, an d
three hundred Imitators, drew well for a time,
but people got tired of them. Then there were
female Blondlns and Leotards, and now every
music hall in England has Its troupes of female
gymnasts and acrobats, appearing as naked as sc
many Sooth Sea Islanders, la the most grotesqu?
and perilous positions, for a little mouey and
mach applause. One woman, said to bc French,
carries her husband and three well-grown
children round thestageon her shoulders; anothei
throws herself from tho flying trapeze, and if
caught in mid-air by a man swinging head down
ward, holding by his toes forty feet above tin
footlights. Such performances as these, with t
crash of music, a glare or tinsel, and a cram met
house, filled with thc fumes 0.' gin, beer and to
bacco, constitute the nightly amusements of pey
haps ha'.r a million or the enlightened Brltlsl
-It is stated that the machine power or Eng
iand and WuleB ls comoetent to perform the labo
of nearly six hundred millions of men, and I
probably greater In productive capacity than th
labor power of all the world beside. The mach?n
power of the United States, though growing witl
amazing rapidity, does not more than equal th
labor power ol' two hundred millions of men.
