between Point Pasudo and Point Ve?udo, a pecu?
liar volcanic movement has recently taken place.
Ina space of two leagues the sn rf ncc of the earth
was in a state of undulation, great caverns and
deep circular excavations were opened, a new
lagoou had been formed, and a hill had risen be?
tween the .shore and the sea. Thc h?ls along the
coast weie observed also to bc in a state or mo- I
lion, with land?lidcs of rocks and trees. This |
volcanic agitation hail been going OB for fonr
days, and followed a direction from weat to east.
It would seem hom this that the throes or the
earth, which, a year or two ago, sent desolation
through some or the most populous districts or
South America, are not yet wholly spent.
-Brigham Young set his bestspcakcrsat work,
as soon as thc Cullom bill passed, to prepare Hie

at Salt Lake City were conducted in a manner
combining the religlJ?3 with the political, strong

Brtgham in Hie Mormon list of dignitaries, takes
the view or the matter which ls most popular and
likely to prevail with the staunch saints. He

-T.;e latest advices from Cuba disclose a most
deplorable s:ate o.r affairs. The prevalent senti
mont is war to tue knife-a war without mercy or
humanity. Cold-blooded batelleries and execu?
tions are of cvery-day occurrence. A Valmaseda
has twenfy-flve men shot before breakfast, and a
Quesada twice as many executed at au hour's
notice. AU of which goos to show that thc hostile
iVrces ara by no m?ans discouru .'eil. Thc story
of thc embarkation of Jordan is repeated, and the
capture of a depository of arms in thc mountains
by thc garrison of Gabanica is reported. Tue
Captain-General has issued another long docu?
ment announcing the termination of the insur?
rection-evidently intended for ciTect abroad.
The CayameJC Espa?ol mentions that ten persons
were recently shot In Bayamo. Thc House of
Representatives had dissolved, and C?spedes,who
hus been twice at the point of being captured,
is wandering about. Two torpedoes had bren
discovered on Hie linc ot railroad, placed there
willi the evident design of blowing up thc train.
Their dimensions and character are described"
from which it 1'assumed they were made in a
foreign land. Interest is centred upon the Las
Tunas district, where Count de Valmaseda is
making great efforts to win back the Cubans by
fire, sword and amnesty. The news from other
parts of the island ls unimportant.
MEMORIAL OY CBNEKAI. J. JOHNSTON* PKTTI
(HiEW. Br Wm. Hcnrv Trcscot. Charles?
ton : John Russell. 1S7?.
The memorial of Lue life of Generali John?
ston Pettigrew, lately issued from thc press'
ol Messrs. Waiker, Evans <fc Cogswell, of this j
city, is something more than a graceful and
worthy biograph; of one of thc noblest aud
most chivalrous of the peerless band who
fought and died itv the armies of the South.
Mr. Trescot judged correctly tltat some
knowledge of tim ways of peace was neces?
sary to a just appreciation of the circum?
stance of war; and assuredly none who are
ignorant of the spirit of the times, of the
habits of the people und their modes of
thought, can understand why the Confed??
rate war begun, mid bow, once begun, it
drew into, its ranks TJniot:i3t and Secession?
ist, stripling aud greybeard, doubler and
enthusiast-all for the State, and the South.
The generous conviction, expressed by Mr.
Trescot, that "men never will mistake
"purity of purpose, nobleness, self-sacrific
"ing lives, or heroic deaths, be they spent
"on one side or the other," will find a re?
sponsive echo in the hearts of the truest sol?
diers of the Confederacy. And those who live
beyond the border may seek thc solution of
what to them is a difficult problem, in the
graphic summary given in the pages of this
Memorial of che causes which bred an al?
most fanatic intensity of State loyalty, and
which settled the question of duty when Hie
ordinance of secession was passed. Men
had their misgivings, but there was "no hes
"itation us to what they liad todo." Calmly,
and with a philosophic spirit, and chasteness
of diction, now too uncommon, Mr. Trescot !
traces Hie character of Soutli Carolina and
its people; illustrating the commonwealth
by rim individual gentleman, and finding in
thc one citizen a representative of thc vir?
tues, and, perhaps, the faults of the State.
Thc early life of General Pettigrew, his
scholastic successes, his appointment as a
pt cfcs.-or in the Washington Observatory,
?ii? admission to the Charleston bar, his for?
eign travel and kia brief but brilliant politi?
cal career, are described with cautious care;
and uo opportunity is lost of pointing out
wherein tho eminent student and scholar was
the type of ht3 race.
General Pettigrew was "hy nature essen-1
"tinily a soldier;'' aud in 1S5S he determined
to apply for a stair appointment in the Sar?
dinian service, anxious lo lake his part in
tho great cause of "struggling, expiring hu
"manity." Tba peace of Villafranca put au
end to thc purpose of his journey to Europe;
but during his absence he devoted himself
to the study of military science, un i upon
his return to Charleston was elected colonel
of thc First Hille Regiment, "the best or?
ganization of volunteer troops in the State."
When the war broke out Colonel Pettigrew**
regiment occupied Castle Pinckney, aud was
afterwards transferred to Morris's and Sulli?
van's Islands ^inmediately after the reduc?
tion of Fort Sumter, Colonel Pettigrew or?
ganized a rille regiment "for thc war;" but
the War Department declined to receive or?
ganized regiments, and thc different compa?
nies obtained admission into other organiza?
tions. Colonel Pettigrew joined the Wash?
ington Light Iufanlry volunteers-ihen com?
manded by General James Conner, himself
as gallant a soldier as ever drew a sword
and a little later was appointed Colonel of
the Twelfth North Carolina. In 1SC2 he was
offered a commission as Brigadier-General.
This he declined to accept on the ground that
"lie hud never been under lire, never han- ;
"died troops in action, and his couviciion
"wus ?ii ?ii that no man who hud not been j
"actually tried in battle should be api.oii.ted
";o the rank ol Brigadier." Not loug afur,
Colonel Pettigrew was persuaded liv General
Holmes to yield ?lis convictions and accept
the appointment. At Seven Pines he was des?
perately wounded and Liken prisoner, and
upon his return to the field was placed in
command of a brigade near Petersburg.
His firmness, skill, prudence aud dashing
valor inspired confidence and enthusiasm
wherever lie went; "he only needed time to
"have won his way to the highest military
. .distinction." At Gettysburg lie commanded
Roth's Division which took part in "the fatal
"and famous advance" on Cemetery Hil!, on
tho morning of the 3d July, 18C3. His noble
brigade, which on the morning of the 1st
July mustered titree thousand men, num?
bered on t!:c morning of the 4th eight hun?
dred and thirty-five.
Thc- end was near. On the morning ol'
the lii? July a small squad of United Stales
.avulry charged upon General Helli, Gene
nil Pettigrew and a group of ofilccrs who
were walking towards the left of their divi
vision. Tl.e anns of the men were stacked,
"there was a brief alarm, an obscure and
"confused skirmish, a few scattered shots,
"and, within sight of a whole division,
"General Pettigrew was mortally wounded
"by one of these reckless troopers, who made
"their escape as rapidly and safely as they
"bad made their attack." Tiierc are few of
tiie v?t?rans uf the Army of Northern Vir?
ginia who do not remember thal drizzly day
nt Fulling Waters, when the news of Hie
wounding of Pettigrew Hashed through thc
ranks; nor is it forgotten that liiere was
then found a grim consolation in the belief
that of tho troopers who made the attack
only two or three escaped.
Three days later General Pettigrew died.
Thc Bishop of Louriana, who was willi him,
said: "In a ministry of near thirty years, I
"have never witnessed a mure sublime ex
"ample of Christian resignation and hope in
This is the whole sad history of the pure, I
unselfish cavalier, and those who knew him I
best, agree that "it needed only this Anal
"consecration to an unselfish caase to per
"fect the nobleness of hi3 character." It is
well that South Carolina has had such men;
for, whatever may be the future, "History
"will vindicate our purpose, while she ex?
plains our errors, and, from generation to
"generation, she will bring back our sons to
"the graves of these soldiers of the South,
"and tell them-aye, even in the fullness of
"a prosperity we shall uot see-This is holy
"ground: it is good for you to be here!"

Modern Egypt. By Edwin DeLeon, late
United States Consul-General for Egypt.
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Go. Charles?
ton: John Russell.
This exciting and picturesque novel ha3
already been favorably reviewed in these col?
umns. We need only repeat that it is one of
the most vividly exciting pictures of East?
ern life ever published, and that the crowd?
ing of incidents, which is its main artistic
fault, will not be a blemish in the eyes of the
A New York Free Trade paper asks why
should Protection force us to buy dear, in?
ferior calico, instead of cheap, superior cali?
co, simply because the cheap superior is
British, and tho (lear inferior American ? In
New York, Lancaster ? prints sell at 17
cents a yard. In Manchester, England,
Hoyle ? prints sold nt latest dates at . 54
peuce, equal to 10j cents gold. Add to this
30 per cent, for premium and expense, and
it will appear that the British calico could
be afforded here in New York at 13* cents a
yard, or 3J cents cheaper than the Ameri?
can. More than this, it is better printed
than the American, so much so that, at the
same price, a thousand cases of English
would be sold out before the American box
03 would be broken in. JJeing thus cheaper
and better, why are we not allowed to
have it ? Why the dear inferior alwiys, and
uot tho cheap superior ? Thc tariff is tho
answer. Some New England manufacturer
wants "Protection"-that is to says, wants
you fined if you buy foreign calico, thus
forcing yon to buy of him; and tho tariff
does thc work for hint and against you,
1 yard English calico:
First cost. 10)ic.

rem. 20 per cent. 2c. -
?Protection". 8,s,'c. gold, or 7c. cur.
With "protection*".19.l?c. gold, or2lc. cur.
Tn this way every working man who buys
a yard of British calico for his wild or child,
is made to pay 7 cents for tho Protection
of thc mill-owners Qf New England. Unless
this 7 cents of duly was exacted, thc British
prints could be sold at less than the selling
price of the American prints. This would,
of course, be for the advantage of thc toil?
ing millions; but il would injure tho wealthy
mill-owners. With a Protective tariff, the
many must suffer that the few may increase
their wealth. With Free Trade every man
can buy in tho cheapest market, whether it
be in Europe, Asia cr the United States.
Ntvr England Alarmed.
A Washington letter tells us: "Tho agree
"ment by tito Ways an 1 Means Committee
"to take off the duty on cotton machinery,
"has brought about strong opposition from
'thc representatives of some twenty-eight

"action. They represent that unless pro?
jection is afforded them they cannot suc?

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 or the American pub
119, ire ?eenk it unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There is hardly a city or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found then?
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and daily increasing demand is owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them thc Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, wc have still further improved
their quality, aud now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve (hat they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of davor, lt ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans, in
short, we tbiuk lt the best that is made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best Judges in the coun?
try. We don't preteud to compete in price with
many of the so-called Flavoriug Extracts of the
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
