the great minister remembering him. Not being
much in the habit of writing to grandees, the
good man could npt for some time determine bow
to begin, but at length commenced his letter,
"Your Highness." He seon received the follow?
ing: "You old blackhead 1 do you think I have
forgotten the happy time when we studied and
drank together in Gottenbsrg. and when we were
so often walting on each other ? Aud, now, how
can you address mc in such a foolish way t Pray

-E. M. Verger was brought berore Chhf Justice
Shackeirord, of the Supreme Court of Mississippi,
' at Jackson, on Tuesday, on a writ of habeas cor
Vis, and released ona recognizance of $15,ooo.
The evidence taken before the military commis?
sion for thc prosecution was read and subletted
without argument. The judge referred to thc Tact
that the Anding of the commission was not ap?
proved by the President of the United States, In?
asmuch as no execution of thc sentence or that
commission had been carried out. Thc evidence
" was conflicting on some points, and does not war?
rant the charge or murder. It ls evident the
crime was committed In the heat or passion, and
?therefore the case ls bailable. Judge Shackeiford
is an appolntee'of General Ames. Verger went to
.his residence in a carriage, unattended, after his.
/e'ease. Any amount of bail could have been ob?
tained. Ti.e Mississippi Legislature have appoint?
ed a committee to prepare an address to thc Gov
ernor, asking the Impeachment of Judge Shackei?
ford for releasing Verger.
-General Jordan has left Cuba on the road to
t*iis country. It appears that* previous to thc
miss on or General Queaada to this country, the
President or the Cuban Republic had requested
information ftvm his diplomatic representative
here as to the wisdom of sending luther some
authorized agent who con id give, from his per?
sonal knowledge, trustworthy details as to the
status of thc Cuban Republic, and that Mr.
Morales Lemus, in reply, warmly urged the mis?
sion to washington of General Jordan, as a per?
son who was not unknown here, and whose
statements would carry conviction. General
Jordan, lt is said, will arrive in a few days, and
will disprove by documentary evidence that he
has abandoned the Cuban cause, aud prove
that the triumph of that cause ls now so certain
that he would have been a fool to do sc. Genera;

The City Debt.
The suits brought against the etty, for the
payment of past due city stock, are direct?
ing public attention to the condition of the
municipal ?nance3, and will, it is hoped,
lead to the adoption of a well-considered
plan for arranging the city debt, a3 well as for
meeting the interest and for paying the cur?
rent expenses of the municipal government.
This ia a matter which demands immediate
consideration, for, in addition to the amounts
for which judgments have already been ob?
tained, another large instalment of city sto^k
falls due in October. In April and October
of each year, until the end of 1803, other
instalments fall due and tl * choice will be
between a rearrangement of thc debt, in?
creased taxation-and, direct or indirect, r??
pudiation. And we desire to say, without
going further, that, in our opinion, any
squinting at repudiation, however disguised,
would do Charleston infinitely more harm
[ than good. We know how onerous is the
load of municipal taxation ; but the city debt
was honestly contracted and should honestly
be paid. Indeed, the courts will compel
thU, whether we like it or not.
[ The city debt at this time is more than
S.j, OOO,OOO, involving an annual charge for
interest of more than 8300,000. This load
of interest stares us in the face whenever an
attempt is made to reduce taxation, and it
was to be expected that the present munici?
pal gevernment would find it more conve?
nient to raise a hue and cry against the peo?
ple who authorized the debt, than to begin
the work of retrenchment by cutting down
the exorbitant cost of the streets and police
departments, and the like. The blind abuse
which Radicalism heap3 upon- the respecta?
ble gentlemen who administered the affairs
of the city until the State was placed under
military rule is, aa we all know, the last re?
sort of a few moHthy demagogues, who do
their best to ruin the people. While with
leather longs they yell Stop thief! their
pockets are filled with spoils.
Before the war, and even after the war,
the Mayor and Aldermen of Charleston may
have made mistakes. Money was spent with?
out stint, where, perhaps, a smaller sum
would have been sufficient. Subscriptions
were made to railroads which were not then,
and will not Joe, of any benefit to the State.
But the city government was pure, honest
and sincere. There was no jobbery, no steal?
ing, and whatever waa done waa done with
the consent of the people. We go further,
and say, that up to the close of the war not
one dollar of debt was incurred which the city
was not able and willing to pay. According
to the United States census of 1SC0, the real
and personal estate in Charleston County
wa3 then valued at S64.000,000. In 1868 the
State asse33ed its value at 637,000,000. If
the people of this city had the real and per?
sonal property which they had tm years ago
they could easily pay the iuterest and princi?
pal of their debt, and make no complaint of
high taxation. The debt is more than can
easily be borne, now that the slave property
ia cancelled ; but it is not more than Charles?
ton was justified in incurring in 1860. A
debt of $2,500,000 would bear the same re?
lation to the present galue of the city prop?
erty, that a debt of $5,000,000 bears to the
vralue of the city property before emancipa?
tion. And we all know well enough that,
poor as we are, we could carry a debt of two
and a half million dollars without serious
At the same time, we repeat, the condi?
tion of the city debt demands prompt and
serious consideration, and we shall be
pleased to place before the public any plans
for its payment, rearrangement or extension
which may have suggested themselves to any
of our readers.

SELF-HELP. Witli Illustrations of Character,
Conduct and Perseverance. By Samuel
Smiles. Author of thc "Life of George Ste?
phenson aud ol his son, Robert Stephenson,"
Ac. New York : Brarper & Brothers.
This book was first published ten or twelve
years ago and immediately became popular.
Its aim is to show, by examples taken from
the history of progress aud discovery in me?
chanics, philosophy, art and science, how
much can be accomplished by energy, per?
severance and hard work. As a book of
reference it is o? great value, for the author
is an industrious collector of useful informa?
tion of the practical kind. Self-Help is a
good book-sufficiently didactic, and both
interesting and amusing.

TrtE New York World says that one of the
industries to which thc reviving energies of
the South must be devoted is that of mining.
It would not require much tact to divert the
How of miners from the direction of Idaho
and Montana to that of Georgia, or the Car?
olinas, or the Virginias. It is true, there is
a charm in going out to a region almost out
of the world to "try one's forttuie," to invest
one's money or one's labor; but against this
charm common sense will sooner or later
cause a reaction. While distance lends at?
tractions tb that which is remote, increasing
prices and a constant market lend it to that
which is near. For this reason the South?
ern States will find it te their advantage to
return lo this industry with greater energy
than before. Were coal mined in Georgia
now, what a market it would have may be
inferred from the fact that at present they
are taking down their coal grates and arc
burning wood :n Macon and Atlanta. What
is most rema....ible in this is that the coal
beds of that State are rich and abundant.
WE agree with our contemporary, the An?
derson TitfeUigcncer,' that a South Carolina
Press Association might be made both use?
ful and agreeable, and hope that the com?
mittee appointed to form a constitution for
such an association will report progress at
an early day.

p RAT T'S "ASTRAL" OIL
Unlike many oilier Illuminating Ous, is per?
fectly pure and free from all adulterations or
mixtures of any kind. It emits no offensive
smell while burning, gives a soft and brilliant
light, and can be used with the same assurance
of surety as gas. Chemists pronounce it the
best and safest Illuminating Oil ever offered to
the public; and Insurance Companies endorse and
urge upon consumers the use of the "Astral" Oil
in preference rb any other. It is now burned by
thousands of families, and Iff ito Instance has
any accident occurred from Its nse; a lamp Oiled
with it, if upset aud broken, will not explode. To
prevent adulteration, the "Astral" Oil ls packed ?
only in the Guaranty Patent Cans, of 1 gallon j
and 5 gallons each, and each can ls sealed in a
manner that cannot be counterfeited. Every
package with uncut seal we warrant. Be sure
and get none but the genuine article, Pratt's "As?
