>and wU? not lind "Prussia unprepared. Thc
Q'?eeach,are so much stronger than the Prus- j
siana ia their navy, that their success would
have been considered certain before the battle

created, whose importance remains to be seen.
The prompt departure of the ships attests afresh
the determination of the Emperor and the peo?
ple to recover ?ate losses If possible.
-In the King's square at Berlin ls a huge
monument upon which raen are seen working
dully with great diligence. But such is its
magnitude that, with all possible Industry, it
cannot be finished in less than tb .ee or four
years. It is to commemorate Prussian victo?
ries. Upon a great granite base lhere are
bronze reliefs representing campaign incidents
of the wars of 18G1 and 18G6. From the base
rises sixteen granite pillars, forming a sort of
arched and open chamber, and from the midst
of this rise a mighty sandstone column cover?
ed to about a third of its height with fresco
paintings, which commemorate incidents il?
lustrative of the spirit of sacrifice which ani?
mated the nation during those wars. Trophies
are Introduced in the shape of twenty Danish
and forty Austrian cannon, (brass,) which are
festooned with bronze laurel wreaths. It is
intended to crown the central pillar with a
"Goddess of Victory," holding a wreath in one
hand and a flag Mn thc other. This figure,
which has been modelled by Drake, is to be
cast in gun metal. The monument will be 200
feet high, and the summit will be reached by a
spiral stair-case in the interior. The whole
was designed by Strack. Bet?re this monu?
ment is finished, Prussia will probably have to
chronicle the greatest of all her victories, or
else such a defeat as will make such a monu?
ment superfluous for the present generation.
The Bread nod Meat of the South.
An old Charleston merchant said the
other day that he had found, in the whole
course of his business experience, that the
planters who made corn enough to carry
them through the year were rarely in debt to
their factors. What was true before the
war, is not very far from the truth at this
time; and it will doubtless be found that the
planters who have ruined themselves, and
their factors, during the last five years, are
those who have given up their whole time to
cotton, and have trusted to luck for bacon
and corn. The cotton planters have been in
too great haste to grow rich. Forgetting
that the high prices, which encouraged one
planter to pitch a large crop of the staple,
were producing a like effect upon the mind
of nine-tenths of the planters iu the South,
every mau went to work as if be alone could
expect to make a full crop. The newspaper
press wrote, and argued in vain. Every
planter was willing that his neighbors should
make corn, but he himself was resolved to
pioJt by their prudence, and give all his
time and care to cotton. The liberal use of
fertilizers, and the extension of the area in
cultivation, increased the yield of the fleecy
staple beyond all expectation. Slowly and
steadily the quotations declined. * The plan?
ters who expected to receive 25 and 30
cer ' B, were glad to sell at 18 or 20, and the
price of corn and bacon rose as the price of
cotton felL 'Had the planters directed their
first care to making bread and meat, they
could have held, the bulk of their cotton, or
its salo would uot have been a ruinous loss.
But they would not be advised, and it is to
be feared that the planters in 1870 have been
very little wiser than they were two and
three years ago.
There is a uew element of danger to the
cotton-planter. While the Increase in the
gros3 crop will naturally force down prices,
there is a fruitful source of disaster in the
European war. That war may last for many
months, or even years. No man can tell
when and where the dogs of war will be
leashed. All that is certain is, a depression
of tbe price of the staple, and an. increase in
the price of breadstuffs, which must continue
until the war ends. The knife ls double
edged. Cotton falls, while corn rises. And
it is not absolutely certain that England will
be able to keep out of tbe arena. The
English desire to be neutral, but they may be
dragged into war, whether they ??ke it or no.
And the long continuance of the war, with
England as a belligerent, would go far to
ruin the South.
We urge these considerations upon the at?
tention of the planters, not to alarm them,
but to impress upon them the absolute ne?
cessity of doing all that they can to supply
themselves and their people with (he staple
articles of food. Cotton has fallen twenty
per cent, io the last two weeks, and a few
months more of war will make it difficult, if
not impossible, for hundreds of cotton-grow?
ers to supply their own wants and those of
their families. These facts are set forth,
plainly and earnestly, ia the resolutions
adopted by the Agricultural Society on
Thursday night. To one of the resolutions
then adopted we call the serious attention of
the people. ' It is this:
"Resolved, That this association of farmers
respectfully advise and recommend that the
the members of this society should use every
means to sow extensive winter crops of wheat,
oats, rye, barley, 4c, and that, Individually
and collectively, steps be taken to Induce
tanners throughout the State to adopt this
South Carolina, and every Southern State,
eau be independent of the Weet if they so
desire. They can make, without difficulty,
as much meat and bread as they require;
and they can make, besides, enough cotton
to yield a handsomejeturn, if the course of
the market is favorable. They will in this
way insure themselves against their greatest
danger. Whatever happen, they will uot be
head over eare in debt for provisions, they
will have food enough without buying it,
they will be able to bold their cotton until it
suits them to put it on the market. This
safety and security, this limitation of loss
and probability of gain, all our farmers can
; obtain if they will now, at last, cease to risk
'.?heir wjiole means in the cultivation of
THE Walhalla Courier says : "Tue speeches
"of Carpenter and Butler, delivered in Wal
"halla on the 28th ultimo, bad a salutary ef
"fect in smoothing down the prejudices of
"our people to the Reform movement.
"They begin to realize there are but two
?.'parties represented in the State by candi?
dates, and they must choose between
"them. It is not difficult to perceive on
"which side the honest and intelligent voters i
"will cast their influence. Whatever bei
"their political views and personal prefer
"ences, their good sense points to Carpenter
"and Butler, as men to be preferred over
"Scott and Rausier. They know their con
"dition cannot be rendered more burden?
some. A change must and will li" ef?
The Charges Against Governor Scott.
General JM C. Butler, the candidate of the
Union Reform party for Lieutenant-Gov
ernor of South Carolina, addresses the fol-,
lowing letter to the Columbia papers :
"In the course of the remarks which I hare
had occasion to make in the present political
campaign, I have felt lt my duty to make cer?
tain specific charges against Governor R. K.
Scott. Those charges I have made deliberate?
ly, and, In my own time, I expect to produce
specifications and proofs.
"Pending these specifications and proofs, a
third party intervenes and makes certain
charges against me. Who this third party Is,
I do not know, but I will say en peasant, for
his consolation, that If his charges against me
are true, and I am the monster which he
mikes mS-have murdered as many colored
people as he pretends-have committed the
crimes which he lays to my door, Governor
Scott is a very derelict Governor, else he
would have had me arrested by his constabu?
lary, tried, convicted, sentenced and hung.
It they are not true, the author of them ls
simply a liar. Which horn of the dilemma will
Governor Scott select ?
"But, Mr. Editor, my charges are made
against Governor Scott, not against a paid edi?
tor .of a newspaper of doubtful respectability.
Why does he not answer them ? His responsi?
bility to the people of South Carolina is ten?
fold greater than mine; my fight is against
him. Will he meet me on the stump, beiore
the good people of the State, and reply to
them ? Will he meet me in the public prints ?
I challenge him, and have no Idea of allowing
him to make his fight by proxy, either on the
stump or through the press.
"M. C. BUTLER."
The Great Battle.
The Antwerp telegrams annouuce that "a
'great battle is momentarily expected," and
upon the result of this battle will depend the
duration of the Franco-German war.
At Hagenau and at Worth, the Germans
outmanoeuvred and outfought the French.
Victory perches on the Prussian banners,
and the German soldiers, proud of their
hard-won laurels, are eager for the fray. The
French will fight bravely, and will make a
desperate effort to retrieve their sinking for
trnes. They have a new commander and
abundant reinforcements, and by this time
may have recovered from the demoralization
which was the effect of their double defeat.
The conflict will be long and bloody.
Both commanders will strain every muscle
to make the combat decisive, and the
result cannot be foretold; but it is certain
that all the chances of war are on the side
of the Prussians, who, up to this time, have
suffered neither check nor disaster.
The Ring Organ, whose scrupulous adhe?
rence to the truth is well known, said "that
"the very first (militia) company accepted
'by the Governor was a white company
'from York, and because he accepted it the
'white grand jury of York County had the
"infamous impudence to present the Gov
'ernor, Hon. J. L. Neagle, and J. L. Wat
"son, Esq., as nuisances."
In reply, the Yorkville Enquirer says that
(1) the company was not white, but mixed;
that (2) it was organized as a constabulary
force, and never formed a part of the militia;
that (3) the grand jury referred to was not a
white jury; that (4) the j ur}- did not present
the individuals named as nuisances, "though
'the two first named may truthfully be con?
sidered as such." Four distinct misstate?
ments in six lines of print. And this is
rather less than the average !
Let South Carolina do Likewise.
The Winii3boro' News takes a cheerful
view of the political situation. It says:
"Let us recollect that in our last election
twenty thousand blacks did not care to vete,
If this Is repeated a full while vote will re
deem the State without a black vote to heit
us. But with proper efforts we can gain ter
thousand black votes at least, and In that case
a victory "ls Uoubly sure. Let us fall into line
with Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina.'
It was hard work that gave our sistei
States their victory. We must work out oui
political salvation. A reasonable effort wil
defeat Scott by a rousing majority. Ont
thing Alone can defeat Carpenter and But
1er, and that is the indolence and selfisl
apathy which defeated Mr. Lesesne tw<
to st ano Jon nt).

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. .
GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the pubUc to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed 'since we first in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
Uc, we deem it unnecessary at present to enter
Into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There is hardly a elty or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason of 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 of the day, we have stlU further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly te?
lle ve that' they stand without a rlvaL Oar Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla B<ans. Ia
short, we think lt the best that is made, at leas",
this Is the decision of the best ;udges -.upcoun?
try. We don't pretend to comport lU price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which are really but ^rt oleas compounds,
undeserving of the nam'..
For quality and at?"^ we defy competition.
