HO W THE EEST1 VAL WAS CELE?
BRATED IX THE CU CRCHES.
Tlir. CONGREGATIONS, THE SERVICES AND
Sketches of thc Sermons of tito Doy.
Thc glad festival of Easter, yesterday, was
marked l?y somewhat variable weather, bur, up
io church-time lu thc forenoon, the attn shone as
brightly as could be wished, and the pealing or
the bells summoned forth throngs of worshippers,
the ladies for Use most part decked in their gay
spring toilettes, and giving a very lively appear?
ance to the crowded streets. At all the churches,
large congregations were present, and at most or
them the services were of a peculiarly impressive
ami solemn character.
St. Paul's Church Kyi .copal.
Thc great size of St. Paul's Church makes it a
work of some difficult; to decorate it thoroughly,
and the drossini" w*? therefore chiefly confined to
the adornment of Hie spacious chane-1, which
iras effected with mnch taste. The altar, pulpit
and choir's gallery were profusely decorated with
cros.-es, and wreaths ol dowers and evergreens.
In front cr the altar was a beautiful stand of
lilies and evergreens. St. Paul's is at present
without any regular rector, but the East* r ser?
vices were conducted by the Rev. James Vf. Miles,
assisted bj the Rev. J. Barnwell Campbell. The
former distinguished divine pt cached a remarka?
ble sermon from thc te.vt, Isaiah ?.?iii. i: "Who la
this that cometh from Edoni, with dyed garments
from I'ozrah? this that is glorious in Ills apparel,
travelling in Iiis strength ! I that spca!; lu right?
eousness, mighty to save.'" The reverend speaker
drew a vivid description of the Saviour, as repre?
sented In the vision of the prophet Isaiah, coming
as the resistless conqueror of sin, death and hell.
Isaiah is regarded as the watchman upon the
tower, whose attention is arrested and lils
wonder excited by the rapid approach of a
most couspieuous figure. As it (irawa near?
er, His dimensions and appearance aro that
of resistless might, aud His features are ra?
diant with the glory of triumph and victory.
The prophet does not neglect his duty as a senti?
nel, but challenges this extraordinary and glo?
ri?os figure In the question of the text, and re?
ceives for answer, "I that speak in righteousness
mighty to save.'' The speaker theu described the
final contest waged by the Saviour with that ter
j rible foe of mankind-sin-and its offspring
j death-and their fall before the conquering Re?
deemer. In this contest thc Saviour is repre?
sented as the champion of the sinner, before
whom death and hell fall dlscomfltted; and for
this He demands nothing. The love of Christ,
His greatness. His wisdom, His goodness, Mis su?
pernatural powers, His compassion, overwhelm
with wonder, admiration and affection, and ira.
press us with the conviction that the Divinity
lives in Him. There ls an unearthly grandeur
about Him which ls the more striking from ike
very simplicity and poverty of His life. If they
had not then already sought thc Saviour, let this
conviction call them to repentance. The sermon
throughout was marked by a singular splendor or
diction and dramatic power; and the concluding
sentences of thc discourse, in which Its impres?
sive teachings were applied to the practical les?
sons or the Easter season, were in a strain or thc
most earnest and persuasive eloquence.
St. Michael's Church (Episcopal.)
In the decorations or St. Michael's Church, even
more than the usual taste and skill was evinced.
Never befare has thc church been more elaborate?
ly and appropriately dressed. The galleries were
huDg with long and graccfal faatoons or cedar,
and every pillar was twined with wreaths or
cedar mingled with lovely and fragrant dowers.
From the font at the door to the cross above the
altar, which was or moss, drooped with hot?
house flowers, every salient point had Its appro?
priate adornment. The large chandelier, which
hangs from the middle of thc celtinjr, was draped
with leaves and moss and flowers, like a huge '
monument o' spring. The rugged outlines or '
thc antique pulpit were almost veiled and hidden '
by the profusion of Its verdant covering. The
sounding board above lt was one mass of diversi?
fied foliage, crowned by a gorgeous bouquet or
natural flowers. The same care was shown In
the decoration or the chancel, and thc effect to
an observer standing in the nave or the church
was very bcautlfol and striking. The services
were conducted by the rector, thc Rev. R. s.
Trapler, (who preached rrom St. John, xx, 9.) and
concluded with the administration or thc Holy
Communion. The music ?vas welt selected and
Grace Clinrch |*Q]>Ucopal.)
Grace Church was dressed with very elaborate
and tasterui festoons or green cedar covering the
walls, and hanging rrom the upper tier of win?
dows In double curves, harmonizing well with 1
the gothic style of thc church. From each arch 1
was swung a basket or lovely flowers. The :
chancel was dressed with ivy, and the font tilled
with magnificent white azaleas; but the chrf 1
d'oeuvre of Ihe decorations was a group of lilies or
the Nile, in jars, placed within the chancel, and
forming a background for thc cross, which was
raised in a mound or flowers. None but '.?ic
choicest and rarest natural flowers were used in
thc decoration, presenting to tho eye the most
gorgeous contrasts. The congi egatlon was a
very large one. and the sermon was preached by
the rector, Rev. C. C. Pincknoy, from thc text,
Thil. 111,10: "That I may know Him and the power
of His resurrection."
St. Philip's (Episcopal.)
There was a large attendauce at this church in
the forenoon, where the service was read by the
rector, thc Rev. W. B. W. Howe, who, however,
being indisposed, was unable to preach the usual
discourse. The church was very tastefully deco
rated, some of thc wreaths and crosses construct?
ed or evergreens and flowers, showing much
skill. At the centre or the inner porch a large
cross or evergreens on a pedestal ol the same,
was particularly noticed. Thc altar and galleries
were richly adorned with floral ornaments, ac?
companied by appropriate scriptural extracts.
Church of the Holy Communion
This church was beautlmlly decorated with
flowers and evergreens. Over the altar was u
large cross or evergreens, with a white ground,
a::d around the pillars garlands, bearing mottoes,
were gracefully twined. At thc morning service t he
rector, Rev. A. Toomcr Porter, preached an elo?
quent and instructive discourse from thc following
text: "But everyman iu his own order. Christ thc
first fruits: afterward they that are Christ's at
His coming.*' 1st Corinthians, lith chapter, 2Sd
Tills church was tastefully an?! elegantly orna?
mented with evergreen and sowers, worked into
rant as tte shapes by the hands or thc ladies of thc
congregation, the chancol being a mass of gar?
lands and wreaths of natural flowers. Conspicu?
ously placed above the altar, lu letters formed of
arborvitae, waa thc Hebrew word "llabboni"
(meaning "Master,") which wor<l was used by
Mary to Jesus wben he first arose from the dead
and made himself known to her. The text of thc
sermon by the pastor, the Rev. C. S. Vcdder, was
taken from Romans viii, 34: "Yea, rather, that is
risen again." Combatting the views of those who >
had rejected thc belief of a resurrection rrom the
dead, rrom ancient times down to the present
agc, he poiuted out wherein they conflicted with
each other. He argued that a mere legend needs
time to grow, while the resurrection or Christ was
acknowledged and believed by hundreds at the
time lt ocenrred. The sermon was listened to
with marked attention. Tuc music on the occasion
was unusually good.
A very full congregation was lu attendance at
the Cathedral Chapel, at service In the forenoon..
Solemn High Mas3 was celebrated by the
vicar general, the Very Rev. Dr. Berming?
ham. Mozart's Twelfth Mass was snug by
thc excellent choir, with, selections from
Farmer's Mass, and a strong orchestral ac?
companiment rendered the music unusually line.
The sormon was preached from inc gospel ot thc
day by the Rev. Mr. Qulgiey, on the joyous
character or the great eveut, the commemoration
of which marks the dos J of the penitential season.
St. Mary's Church (Catholic.)
Tlie pastor, Rev. Mr. Northrop, preached l
the text, "This is thc day that the Lord has lu
Let us be glad and rejoice therein." Suoi
thc difference between the entry into Jerusa
commemorated by the Church on Palm Sun
and thc glorious Resurrection commemorate
Easter ?ay, the preacher gave n glowing des?
Hon of the mingled hope and anxiety with w
the souls of the Just, dead before Christ, awa
His coming. In the name of the Church,
through the Communion of Saints, he elaimt
place for hts purified hearers in the noble arm
the Saints, exhorting all the faithful to have <
fldence in thc mercy and goodness of Chris
which His resurrection ivas an abiding ple<
He alluded to him who tilled thc pulpit at
Mary's a year ago, and who awakened in?
huming eloquence the dcvotlon of his congre
lion; and who was now, it was confidently hoi
one of thc band of Saints who hymned ctet
praises before the Jasper throne of God. The
tars of St. Mary's were prettily and chas
adorned with lights and natural flowers,
lard's Mass was sung by the choir, the sw
notes of the tenor making themselves plcasat
St. Patrick's Church (Catholic.)
The Rev. Ur. Moore, who preached at High Mi
chose thc following as his text: "Ile ls risen;
is not here," (Mark, xvi chapter, 8 verse.) '
reverend divine, after speaking of the festl
which was then being celebrated In triumph ;
joy th oughout thc Christrian world, descril
the death and resurrection of the Saviour,
plaining that the Hie which the Saviour assun
after the death was divine and Immortal;
body which His soul r?assumes and animates
thc power of his Divinity, ls not a body subjeel
Infirmity and death, but is a body glorious a
impassable. He rises to die no more; death st
have no more domin.on over Him. In conclus!
thc speaker appealed to his hearers to knov
they had died unto sin, and were risen and liv]
unto God; if so, to-day wai one of triumph
them as well as to the Saviour. Thc music v
especially fine, tho military post band accom;
nyiug throughout the mass. In beauty of deco
Hons, St. Patrick's Church yielded to none, 1
profusion or flowers being almost bewildering.
St. Peter's Church (Catholic.)
At High Mass yesterday, the celebrant, thc R
Mr. Folchi, preached rrom the text, "This 1B t
day which tho Lord has made. Let ns bc gi
and rejoice therein." He explained that If
would partake lu thc spiritual Joy, wc must w:
In newness of life, illustrating t-he-o positions
the gospel and epistle of the day. In concludl
lils discourse, he exhorted the congregation to :
ceive the solemn blessitig given to-day, "Ad I
bern cl Orbem,'1 by the Holy Pontiff, at St. reter
at Rome, of which Impressive ceremony t
reverend gentleman gave a glowing desorlptlc
The church, as wc have already had occas!
to say, was decorated with great richness, and
excellent taste. It will be opeu to day and l
St. John's (Lutheran) Church.
This church was most elaborately decorati
yesterday. Pendant from each gas brack
swung a small basket filled with howers of riche
and rarest hue. Thc altar, rails, pulpit stairs ar
pillars presented a beautiful spectacle, profuse
but tastily decorated with wreaths of evergret
and flowers. In front of the pulpit stand, in le
tors of evergreen, was the simple, yet appropt
ate word, -'Alleluia." In the window in rear 1
thc pulpit wai a lurga cross or overgrccn; at tl
centre of the window arch was a largo star; abo\
this the sentence, ".Vow is Christ Jilsen.'" an
above this a crown, all made of evergreen. Til
services commenced at half-past io o'clock. Arte
ilnglng and prayer, Rev. W. \T. Hicks, tb
assistant pastor, read the morning lesson, loun
in the 16th chapter of St. Mark. The text select
cd by Mr. Hicks was the 3Uh verse or the St
chapter of Romans: "Who is he that condenar
etti* It is Christ that died; yea, rather, that I
risen again, who U even at the right hand of God
who also raaketh intercession for us." lilburn
lng words the divine depicted tho sufferings 0
our Saviour, His crucifixion and resurrection
and then Impressed upon blt bearers thc lessoi
lt taught, how they too must suffer, be craciflci
o tue world, before they could risc agali
ind enter lnro the rest and Joy prepared for al

the rite of confirmation was administered ti
twelve persons. Thc venerable pastor, Dr. Dach
man, was present, and assisted at this ceremony
Wentworth Street Lutheran; Church,
The pastor of this church, Rev. Mr. W. S. Bow
man, preached an Impressive sermon to quite t
large audience yesterday, from the text : "And
the angel answered and said unto the woman,
rear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus, willett
was crucified. He is not here, Tor He Is risen, a?
Hcsaid. Come seo the place where thc Lord lay.'
Matthew, ?ith chapter, seth verse. Arter a briol
vindication of the grand assertion in the text
'.He is risen, as He said," which was sustained
hy the testimony of history, the testimony of In?
spiration and tho testimony or angels, the rever?
end speaker pursued as hl-i theme the evidence
und signs of thc presence of a risen Redeemer In
thc world; those who sought Him in the same
spirit that actuated thc woman spoken of in thc
text would find- Ulm. Eight persons were ad
milted to the c'turcU by confirmation, and four
by certificates from other churches. A vory largo
number of pers ns united in Hie celebration ol
the Lord's Supper.
German Evangelical Church.
TheGerman Evangelical Church. Rev. L. Muller,
pastor, at thc corner of Uascl and Anson
streets, was very tastefully adorned yesterday,
and services appropriate to tho day were con?
ducted by the pastor.
Citatfcl Square Church (Baptist.)
This beautiful and magnificent structure, thc
pride ortho Baptist denomination and an orna?
ment of our city, situate Immediately opposite
the Citadel Square, In Meeting street, was tilled
by a large and attentive congregation, Including
some of thc most prominent of our citizens.
Their devotion to thc interests or religion is ex?
emplified by thc cheeriness which they respond
to every demand upon them, for thc advance?
ment and benefit of this their church, or the more
munificent works of their denomination. The ser?
vices commenced by an organ voluntary by Pro
lessor Aichel, and the singing of the list h Psalm,
n? a quartette, lcd by Mr. W. B. Burden. Thc morn?
ing services were as follows: Invocation by the
pastor, Rev. Dr. Wlnklcr; reading of the Scriptures;
singing of thc 92d hymn, commencing "To Thy
Temple we Repair." Arter this the Rev. Dr.
Wlnklcr took his text from Gal. 1, 4. The subject
was deliverance from the prosentcvll world. The
pastor remarked thal thc world, In the sense in
which thc text employed it, is an element fntnl to
the spiritual life; and that the Christian can no
more conform to it than he cnn to thc life of
fishes or of eagles. He added that conformity to
il is a condition so deplorable as to claim thc pity
or Heaven, and thc sacrifice of the Son or God.
Ho dwelt upon thc nature and thc importance of
the deliverance effected by Jesus Christ. The
man who esteems thc world as his chief end ls In
bondage, though he may cheerfully wear his
chains: and he can urge neither the plea of in?
nocence nor the thc argument <>r necessity wheu
he puts thc creature In Cod's place and makes an
immortal spirit subservient to dust. But Christi?
anity justifies and ennobles the present lire; re?
fines thc character or its possessor, and prepares
thc believer for a world or light. The preacher
urged that thc seculur cares of Hie, and thc
scruples which disturb religious persons
in regard to business or pleasure, were
God's concern even In eternity. They had a
most important relation to the Saviour's mission.
He asserted that human virtues arc empty, and
that life's blcssiugs arc treacherous and transi?
tory when separated from religion. But the at?
tainments of Hie consistent Christian prove him
to be the noblest, the wisest, and thc happiest ol
men. His peroration we give entire and com?
mend Its Christian liberality, Us lofty sentiments,
its pure and unadulterated teachings to thc at?
tention and guidance of all denominations ol
Christians : "To-day many Christian congrega?
tions arc celebrating the festival of Easter. Wc
do not observe lt, for, in our judgment, thc Gospel
makes every Sabbath the Lord's day-a day
sealed by His name, and especially commemorat?
ing His resurrection. But wc have no quarrel
with our brethren who set one of these days
apart for a special service or commemoration,
and adorn their churches with fio al gifts and

The Unitarian Church was adorned for ll
rcstlval with much taste. A memorial discour
was delivered by the pastor, the Rev. Br. Cutlc
al the morning service, ou (he lato Rev. Charl
J. Bowen. The same divine preached the East
sermon In the evening from I Corinthians, xv, 1
Easter, ho said, as a Christian restlvity, commer
orates thc resurrection or Christ from thc dead,at
at an early period took the place of heathen rit
once celebrated In honor or the renewal or natu
In spring-time. The fact of Christ's resurrectlc
is fundamental. It lies at the basis of Christian
ty as an organized religion. It ls one of tl
prlmoval convictions upon which the Church wt
built. After the crucifixion it became thc rall,
ing fact, which reassured tho despondent disc
pies and filled them with new hopes and zeal ac
courage, lt was preached everywhere by tl
first messengers of the'Cosmel, and held forth i
an elemental point In the Christian faith. Thou??
most wonderful event, lt ls not incredible, when n
take it In all its sublime connections. We cann<
eliminate the miraculous clement from the Nc
Testament without destroying the record. Af?
the great and wonderful lire or Jesus, raith In hi
resurrection becomes easy and natural. His lil
was the great wonder In that age, an

Thc Second Presbyterian Church.
There wore no services at this ohurch ycatcr
?lay, in consequence of the illness or the pastor
the Rev. Dr. Smythe, and thc failure or thc] min
later who was expected to occupy the pulpit lt
his stead, to arrive.
The Circular Church (Presbyterian.)
The pastor, Rev. Mr. Adams, delivered an ex
collent discourse from the text: "For ye know
thc graco or our Lord Jesus Christ, that though
He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor,
that ye through His poverty may bo rich," (ll
Corinthians, viii, 9.) There was a full attendance,
and thc audience seemed deeply Impressed.
Jfirst Presbyterian Church (Scotch.)
The pastor. Rev. Dr. Forrest, officiated yester?
day morning, and delivered an excellent dis?
course from the nth chapter and 23d verse ol
Romans: "Behold, the goodness or God." There
was no especial reference made to the season or
the year, or to the rellgloas festival which was
celebrated hy the other denominations.
Central Presbyterian Church.
Upon thc following text: "Why art thou cast
down, 0 my soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me f Hope thou In God, for I Fliall yet
praise Him, who ls the health or my countenance
an t my God," (iud Psalm, 11th verse,) Rev. Mr.
Dana, pastor or this church, yesterday preached
an Instructive and interestiug sermon. In earn?
est language he pointed out the grounds Tor hope
lu God; showed in what thc serving or God con?
sisted-not In abnormal religious excitement, but
In the general rectitude or life; that as God Offered
to all grace here and glory hereafter, He demand?
ed in return obedience, love and trust
Trinity Church (MethodLit.)
Thc Rev. W. P. Mouzon, pastor, took for lils
text: "But now ls Christ risen from the dead, ami
become the first fruits or them that slept," I Co?
rinthians, 15, 20. The speaker sahl he would not
attempt to bring forward the many strong argu?
ments generally used on such occasions, but
would merely quote the Gospel truths on the res?
urrection, which was sufflclont evidence to prove
to the world the resurrection or Christ. One re?
markable ract he Impressed upon the sinner was
this: that although previous to His crucifixion
Christ mingled with sinners, yet after His resur?
rection Dc appeared only to His disciples. This
sermon was a plain but Impressive one.
Spring Street Methodist Church.
The day waa not specially observed at this
church; yet the services were of a deeply Inter?
esting character. Fifty-six persons applied for
church membership, the fruit of a revival which ls
still in progress, nnder charge of the pastor, Rev.
J. T. Wightman. The morning service was con?
ducted by thc Rev. Pan iel May, of tho South
Carolina Conference-text, John lil, 10: "For God
so loved the world that he gave His only begotten
Son, that whosoever U?lievcth In Him should not
perish, bnt have everlasting life." He said thc
text embodied thc great thought that thc God?
head was interested In the salvation ol thc world.
Thc love or God the Father was the moving cause
of man's redemption; Hie suffering of God the
Son th- procuring cause; and thc power or God
thc Holy Ghost the efilcient cause. While all the
Godhead thus actively combined for the redemp?
tion or the world, yet thc instrumental cause was
raith lu Christ, which secured the object or re?
demption, namely, that they "should not perish"
who believe in Christ. These points, as well as
the power or thc noly Ghost on the hearts and
consciences or thc ungodly, were urged with

GROWTH OF TBE FERTILIZER
TRADE OF CHARLESTON.
WHAT OUR RAILROADS HAVE BEEN* DOINC.
Tho worthy citizens who snuff the tainted
gale, ami abuse, la no measured terms, these "su?
perfluous superphosphates," do not pause to con?
sider the extent or the fertilizer business, ita Im?
portance to thc community, or Its potential in?
fluence in developing the riches or theStatc. ^Es?
thetically considered, fertilizers may be a nui?
sance; butas a practical means of stimulating
the soil, and of Increasing the product of a given
quantity o? labor, their importance ls not likely
to bc estimated too highly.
Even before the war guanos were used in South
Carolina. Thc consumption, however, was not
pirge, and only the diminished amount and in?
creasing cost of labor, consequent upon emanci?
pation, made the farmer consider whether it was
not better to decrease thearoa lu cultivation, and
by high farming, Increase the yield. There was
also, thc expectation that the use of fertilizers
would push the colton plant forward so that the
danger from caterpillars would be lessened, an
expectation which in many marked instances
hos been warranted by thc facts.
The discovery of thc South Carolina phosphate
beds, some three years ago, encouraged thc pub?
lic to lend an ear to thc advantages of the diff?r?
ent kinds of guano. Capitalists put their money
freely Into the venture, aud the result was the
establishment of thc Wando, the Etlwan, and thc
Paciflc Phosphate Works, where tuc crude phos?
phate roek 19 manipulated, made soluble, and
prepared for a market. These different compa?
nies give employment to hundreds of hands,
without counting tho labor engaged in getting
out the crude roc'< by thc different mining asso?
ciations. As well as we have been able to learn,
all the different companies arc in a prosperous
condition, and they have, this season, transacted
an enormous business.
It Ls diillcult to ascertain how much fertilizing
material of the different kinds has actually been
sold. Thc agents are chary of giving detailed
information, but thc records of the railroad and
steamboat companies show tolerably well the
amount of business done.
Tne SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD.
During the three months ending on March
31st, the amount of guano and fertilizers trans?
ported by this railroad ls as follows:
To Camden. 087
" Way Stations. 5,753
" Augusta and beyond.10,282
" Columbia and beyond. 7,3?8
The degree of lucrease ls shown by the follow?
ing table, which gives the shlpmont of fertilizers
during thc twelve months ending December 3lst,
To Camden. 230 K
" Way Stations.2.300
" Augusta and beyond. 3,610 >?
" Columbia and beyond. 4,759
It will be noticed that the shipment of fertiliz?
ers to Camden for three months ot 1S70 ls three
times os much as for twelve months ot 1S69; the
shipments to way stations aro more than double,
and thc shipments to Augusta and beyond are
nearly trebled. During the past season the ferti?
lizer trade with points beyond Augusta has large?
ly Increased. This shows that Charleston ls
spreading out her Iron arms into the ceutrc of
Georgia and the Southern cotton belt. The in?
crease In the shipments to the local stations ls
also an excellent sign of progress. With more
Xtomforty-eiaht million pounds of fertilizers 6ent
over thc road in three months, no wonder that
thc gale was tainted, and that the traveller over
the line found an omnipresent odor less savory,
by far, than the perfumes of Araby the Blest.
TUR NORTHSASTERS RAILROAD.
Thc shipments over this road up to the loth
To Way Stations. 507
" Wilmington and Manchester R. R...14S5
" Chcraw and Darlington Railroad. .1500
Tn? SAVANNAH AND CHARLESTON RAILROAD.
This road, for various reasons, has done only a
small business In fertilizers. It has been open
buta short time, and thc sectiou through which
it passes ls not rich In active capital. From the
1st January to date, this road hos shipped two
hundred and forty tons.
Weean now form some Idea of the extent of
the trade by adding together the shipments by
the different roads, and adding to the statement
ot the South carolina Railroad (which is for three
months) enough to equalize it with the Savannah
and the Northeastern Roads, which arc for three
months and a half:
South Carolina Railroad.26,006
Northeastern Railroad. 3,798
Savannah and Charlcstou Railroad.. 240
The price of the different kinds of fertilizers
ranges from $55 to $100 a ton, but a fair average
ls about $70. At this rate the value of the fertil?
izers shipped over the different railroads this
year is $-?,107,280.
Some idea may be had of thc bulk of this enor?
mous mass of fertilizing material. A car carries
about 16,000 pounds, so that there was lu all about
three thousand seven hundred and sixty-three
(3703) car loads, which would make two hundred
and ?iQht trains of eighteen cars euch. These
trains, one berorc thc other, with their engines
and conductors' cars, would form a continuous
Hue over twenty-seven miles loaf, and of this, the
fertilizers carried by the Smith Carolina Railroad
would make a train long enough to reach from
Sr. Michael's Church to Summerville, ormor? than
Besides the amounts shipped by the railroads,
about 1000 tons ot fertilizers have been forwarded
by thc coasting steamers and schooners. There
have also been shipped to foreign ports,735 lons of
crude phosphates, valued at $4450. These ilgures
will enable our readers to realize, perhaps for the
first time, the magnitude of the phosphate busi?
ness, and thc amount of capital Invested in ferti?
lizers by the farmers and planters of the State.
