says the New York Tribune, (RepabUcan,) framed
solely In the national Interest, provide for the de?
crease of the nation's expenses, yet both were
postponed one day last week, in order that the

-It was rumored In Wall street on Friday after?
noon that Sessums Sc Co., a heavy cotton Arm of
Galveston, Texas, had victimized certain bankers
of New York City to the tune of over half a mil?
lion dollars by drawing against cotton which had
never been shipped. The gossips had lt that Mor
ton, BUss ic Co., Gardner. Bacon A Co., Williams
A Guion, and several others, had been victimized. I
The true story of the alleged swindle ls substan?
tially as follows: About six weeks ago Messrs.
Sessums4 Co.. or Galveston, drew ona firm in
New York for ? considerable amount, (bat not so
moch as the gessips said,) expecting to cover
their draft by a Blilp?entof cotton. This cotton
they had io.' the pressend were nnablo te ship
Because of the weather. Soon after drawing on
the New York house, Sessums A Co. were forced I
to suspend, and their creditors in Galveston seiz?
ed the. colton in. press. Of course, under these
circumstances, they oonli not ship the cotton to
New York to cover their draft. Since the trans?
action, Sessums A Co., lt ls said, resumed busi?
ness, and wUl probably meet all their drafts. I
-Patti assumes the right or a Diva to her ca?
prices and petulenco in a manner which drives
Manager Bagler almost crazy. A few nights
since, while singing Lucia, she became suddenly
aware of tbe presence of a little pimple on her
neck, and at once asserted that she had thc small?
pox, and would sing no more. There was ever
twenty thousand francs in the house, and Bagicr
was in a terrible quandary. He ran for the phy?
sician in attendance at thc theatre every night,
who smilingly examined the "boho," and as?
sured the Diva that it was bnt the outcropping or
spring. She refused to be comforted, and said
that she had seen several celebrated doctors
among the audience, and they should be con?
sulted. No soo J er said than done. These skil ru 1
^prac tit ion ere quite csnflrm ed the announcement
ef their confrere, and at last, after the audience
had patiently waited some three-quarters of an
hear, the cSntatricc condescended to finish the
opera. A few nights later she fancied she was
growing hoarse, and announced that she would
not finish the performance. Again was the dis?
may of the manager boundless, and after having
daly created all the alarm possible, the Diva gra?
ciously concluded to go on.
- -The war or the Philadelphia medical students
ls over.. It ls ended by a compromise, which, in
view or the natural propensity or the male stu?
dents to behave as if rowdies, is perhaps the best
way or settlement. The point at issue was the
right of the students sf the Female Medical
School to attend clinics at the Pennsylvania
Hospital. The male students made lt extreme?
ly unpleasant ror them when they assumed the
right some time since, descending ts personal
insult and abase, and finally requiring some
authoritative legislation on the subject. Clin
leal instruction being an absolute necessi?
ty in a medical course, to deny the ladles
the privilege would be to shut the profession
against them and to say that no properly edu?
cated woman physicians should bc graduated at
the Philadtlphia College. The hospital, too, ls a
public charity, established by contribution and
Intended for the benefit all. The women thus had
a strang case, and .when it was agreed to refer
the disputed point to a vete or the contributors
to thc hospital, many of whom are all ladles, the
result could not be otherwise than favorable.
The compromise for walc)i they have voted, is
the establishment of separate clinics for the rc
maldstudents, whicli is in every way more ac?
ceptable and advantageous, while it also at once
removes all cause or complaint on the part or the
"An Independent Prc?,"
The necessity for an independent press in
our country arises from two peculiar circum?
stances, which attracted the philosophic at*
tention of DeTocqueville during his visit to
America-the ptjwer of society in a demo?
cratic form of government, and the uniform?
ity of legislation. ^ -
Where the supreme power i3 lodged in the
hands of the peopje, the press which informs
the public mind should not be surrendered
to partisan manipulation. Every intelli?
gent editor, of course, must have formed de?
cided views in regard to political measures;
but ?t may be questioned whether any mere
politician is competent to discharge the
duties of that office. For the half-truth3 he
publishes have all the effect of falsehoods.
These exaggerations confuse the intelligence
and inflame the passions which, among us,
are the source of legislation. Some histo?
rians assure us that a flt of indigestion made
Napoleon lose a decisive battle, and thu3
proved eventually the cause of the overthrow
of his empire. But the people may lia ve,a
fit of indigestion, as well as the monarch,
and in their case the disease becomes chronic.
And as they have a right to do what they
please in a republic, to what straits may they
not be driven if they have no better diet than
to-day a stale cabbage-head from^Boston,
and to-morrow a dish of poison ons mush?
rooms from Lowell ?
The public taste and the general welfare
demand the circulation ofti newspaper, in
whose colemos may be found authentic in?
formation, liberal views, just criticism arni
the unfolding of a policy suited to the pro?
gress and the vicissitudes of to-day. vV'hat
Charleston was fifty years ago, and what
South Carolina will be fifty years hereafter,
'may beg?ubjects of interesting research, or
pleasant anticipation ; but what tho city and
State are and ought to be to-day, concerns
ns vastly more than the records of memory,
or the pictures of hope. The press should
live ami move and keep abreast of the times,
if it would discharge the great function en?
trusted to it in a popular form of government
Besides, what constitutes one of the dan?
gers of such a system is also one of its ad?
vantages. The people do not understand
complications. They are influenced by gen?
eral ideas. They prefer simple rules of ac?
tion, easy to be understood and universal in
application. Now it is easy to see what ad
vant'ge this'tendency of opinion affords to
the popular instruction which every day and
directly addresses society, and which trans?
forms "blind instincts and ungovernable
"habits" into great principles and a com?
With ns, the national movement which
precipitated the late war and has not yet
spent its force, needs at once to be directed
and limited. The public miad is confused
by the general change-by new laws, new
conditions of society, new adjustments of
duties and of rights. If the press is to dis?
charge its duty under such circumstances, it
must be independent. A milk-and-wat?r
policy will not serve when difficulties and
dangers are on every hand, and when the
time has come to shape law, and conserve
order, and guard property, and save society
itself. When every dear interest of the
country is endangered, the greatest of our
needs is men bold enough to encounter the
public peril, and strong enough to master it.
And it is a subject of congratulation, that
so many such men are now working for the
redemption of South Carolina, men dutering,
it may be, in many particulars, but agreeing
in regard to the general features of the
policy to be pursued, and working diligently
aiid hopefully for the same end. We can
already see on the edge of the horizon the
star that heralds the coming day.
Blue Blood and Social Equality.
"When Adam delved and Eve span.
Who was then the gentleman ?"
The speech delivered by Colonel D. Wyatt
Aiken before the Immigration Couvention,
in which he declined to recognize white im
I migrants as his social equals, unless they
were gentlemen, has attracted considerable
attention, and has undoubtedly excited the
indignation of many of thc most highly valu?
ed German citizens of the State. That such
sentiments should have caused surprise is
not at all strange, but it is plain enough that
the speaker has the right to regulate hi3 own
affairs in his owa way, and that he has not
the power, if he had the will, to check the
progress of German civilization in America.
We do not believe that there are a hundred
men in all South Carolina who think as Col?
onel Aiken seems to think. If he were the
representative or a numerou3 class, there
would, indeed, be little hope in the future
for the State. From Europe we expect to
obtain intelligence as well as muscle, brain
os well as physical force; for every sturdy
immigrant can, if he will, teach our people
something well worth knowing.
Slavery impeded the full measure of our
prosperity, and, now that slavery is past and
gone forever, we must put away the old hab?
its of thought, and act and feel a3 free men,
who deal with free men. All the sense and
ail the cultivation of the universe is net con?
fined within the borders of South Carolina.
I We have much to learn; and the Germans
and the Irish and the English will help U3 to
This question of social equality will settle
itself No respectable immigrant, although
he be a laborer, will thrust himself where he
is not wanted.
And he can, if needs be, create a society
of his own, just as rigid and as exclusive as
the innermost ring of South Carolina gen?

Correspondent, ol yesterday, printed in

German citizens of Charleston in regard to
Colonel Aiken's speech.

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 of the American pub?
lic, we deem it unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There ls hardly a city or town or any note In the
country into which they have not round tlfPir
way. The reason or this widespread popularity
and dally Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts or the day, we have stlU runtier improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy or fin vor. It ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, wc think it the best that ls made, at least,
this is the decision or the best judges in the conn
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many or the so-called Flavoring Extracts or tne
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving or the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
