HE,TS OF THE DAT.
-Gold closed In New York yesterday at IO*.
-Cotton was unsettled and lower; uplands 16 . ?
cents; sales 2600 babs.
-In Liverpool cotton closod Hat; uplands 9,','d;
Orleans 9%d; sales 10,000 bales.
-A balloonist is to bring out cf Paris some dan
sueses for a New York manager, at $200 apiece.
-A Californian claims that he can raise cotton
on his farm there two cents a pound cheaper than
they can do lt from the best lands along the Mis?
-England Is beginning to acknowledge New j
Terk as the leader or fashions. The London pub?
lishers, to* whom a prominent metropolitan mo?
diste has furnished steel fashion plates for some '
time psst, advised her reeeu:iy ,by cable to In- 1
crease their original order one-third, in lien of .
.Parisian styles, American designs being preferred
'4o any other.
* -A number of French officers, 'akca prisoner
at Sedan, were sitting at a restaurant at Berlin,
when some private Prussian soldiers entered,
.and, as all other table) were fall,, sat dowa at _
Their table. The arrogant lieutenants took of* ,
lenee at what they deemed-an insult to their
epaulettes. So one of them asked one of the prl- '
vates, who belonged to thc landwehr, in an Insult- '
lng manner for his name. "My nftme ls Prince
T-," was the reply, "at present serving my
country as a private. Give mi yours, sb*, so that
I may know whom to chastise as soon as yon arc
permitted to bear arms."
-A California miner, who lu?t spring emigrat?
ed to the. diamond fields of South Africa, writes ;
that on arriving there the Callforoia scones of '49
/were reproduced. "The river was lined with rock?
ers, tents and miners of all k.nds, color, sex and
size, for a mlle on both sides. At least soo miners
were at work, whole families, men, women and '
children. The men were picking, shoveling and '
? washing the dirt, while the women and children ,
were titting around tables and sorting thc pebbles .
that have been washed for d'amonds " One par?
ty fonnd 172 diamoaaa ina triangular space of '
fifty paces each way, and les; than two feet deep,
?150 more had been takec ont near by. They rang,
cd from X to 63 karats weis it, and one of 40 ka
rats ls valued at ?9500. The gravel ls dag down to
the clay bed, the dirt sifted, and thc pebbles care?
fully washed In a cradle and then sorted, a hand?
ful at a time. The negroes are being taught to
sort, and the blacker they are the more honest.
Whenever they have a little white blood In them,
they will 6tcal. ,
-Among the improvements of modem war,
. methods for providing defeu3lve cover for soldiers
. inaction hare a prominent-place. With the sub?
stitution or the accurate rifle! for the will-firing
- musket as a weapon of offence, comes the Impera- -
Uve demand for a shelter for thc skirmisher, to <
be easily improvised wherever needed -a demand '?
which our own soldiers recognized when they I
spilt their t n canteens inte serviceable shovel.?, 1
. and by their aid threw up Uttle mounds of earth <
behind which they could Ile In comparative pa ret y. ,
Au officer of the English engineers has Invented a ,
combination of the pick and alto - el, attached to ,
.one handle, strong enough to work In surface
soil, but so light as to be readily carried by every
soldier. To this he would aid a "collapsible loop
ho3e," a circle to be put la the blouse pocket, but '
capable of being drawn out like a telescope, or :
rather like a French opera-hat, to a cylinder twen- 1
ty-one inches long and fix Inches In diameter, ;
-about which the earth may be piled so that the
man ls effectual ly shielded from an cu ?my at
whom he may nevertheless take aim.
-The Cincinnati Commercial, following in the
wake of the New York Post, administers a telling I
blow to the President, wha seems nearly as an- 1
pop alar with his own party as with theopposi- (
tlon. It declares that th? S-nate will make its un?
friendliness felt at the next session In op
position to some of Grant's pst theories and
schemes, and in refusal to confirm his appointees. 1
Fenton still reels the wound of the Collector j
Murphy contest. Howard ls sore cn account of ,
his overthrow for minister resilient at Guatemala,
which was g.ven to Mr. Hudson, a relative
or the President. Sumner ls unfriendly, partly 1
on account of 'San Domingo, bat more on
'. account or Motley's recall; and for the latter .
reason ls Senator Wilsen unfriendly. Others
c'aim that he lu9 done nothing to aid their
re-election. A powerful opponeut or the Presl- 1
dont ls Carl Schnrz, and the breach between
them is very wide. T.ie appointment of Grant's
brother-in-law, Kramer, as minister to Denmark; 1
of John Dent, another brcthor-in-law, and a Dem- i
ocrat, appraiser at San Francisco; of Admiral <
Porter to succeed Farragut, and of Admiral Row- I
an vice Porter, will be sturdily opposed. Many 1
senators do not relish Secretary Cox's remora!, t
and will make thc President andersfand it. ' As j
for Mr. Sumner, personally, he win accept the t
. guage 0" ba-tie ihrjwa down to him, and will
take open ground that the Executive, tn attempt- T
lng to punish senators for exercising their piivi- 1
lege in voting against treaties and appropriation?, ?
is assuming thc same attitude toward Congress 1
..as that presumed on by Andrew Johnson."
-The dismal scenes during the siege of Stras?
bourg, already described, would fill volumes; but
fre3tt horrors are depicted lu eich mall's advices.
A wealthy merchint, on the approach or he 1
enemy, seat &way his ra ally, but remained him- 1
seir to care for his larg* property. The most c
btilky articles he secured as well a? he was able, 8
and, taking als plate and Jewels to the cellar or I
on? of hi? houses, he prepai?d that place as hi? *
?stronghold. ?Ie laid in provisions, and, with one 1
' or two trusty servants, shut himself la. For s
- elghtdays all weat weU; on the ninth a shell Mi (
befare the house, and rhey retrejted to the 1
? cel'ar. After a few days, and while the mer?
chant was dining, a horrible crash overhead
and the tumbling In of the wails apprised ?
.ham that, a hage shell had blown the, house I
to atom?. Every avenue of escape waa choked
by debris, and be was bari d alive. Light
log- a lamp, which he fortunately found unbroken,
he looked about him. Two of his attendants were
missing, the other fonnd crushed to death.
After a period of despair the prisoner set to work,
with the energy of desperation, to dig out; but
the walls crumble 1 continually, and each brick he
took away made others- fall. His lamp burned
out, but he toiled in darkness. After working
two days, the celling fell in, stunning him. Re?
covering consciousness at length, he saw above
him the stars. It was night, but he was alive
and nearly free. Next morning he made his es?
cape, and'crouching by his ruined' house, wept
for more than two hours. Ia his week's entomb?
ment, his hair had grown white, and he had aged
more than lu twenty years.
Til - State Fuir at Columbia.
The energetic officers of the State Agricul?
tural Society, with the active co-operation of
tho citizens of Colombia, are working very
bard to make the State Fair, which open?
;o-morrow, a. handsome exposition of the
manufactures and the agricultural and in?
dustrial enterprise of the whole State. A
large sum of money has been spent in im?
proving the Fair Grounds, and Columbia
?eems determined to show all South Caro?
lina that the capital, oppressed ns it ia by
thc presence of the head-centres of Eadical
rascality, has life enough and energy enough
:o gather the people together in the good
?use of industrial progress, and is able, be?
sides, to take good care of the throng of
vi3itor3 who are already filling the hotels
from basement to roof. A number of private
families have sent in their names to the com?
mittees as ready to receive visitors, and
nothing will be left undone to secure the
comfort of the thousands who will be at?
tracted to Colombia by the meeting of the
Survivors' Association (when General Pres?
ton will deliver an oration) and by the ball
of the South Carolina Club, as well as by the
Great Fair itself.
We trust that every county in South Caro?
lina will be represented in the Fair. It was
hoped that an arrangement might have been
made for holding the fairs in alternate years
in Charleston and Columbia. ? But if this
cannot be, we of the seaboard must stand
by Columbia, as Columbia, we are sure,
when the time comes, will stand by us.
UARGABST: A Tale of the Real and the Ideal,
Blight and Bloom. By Sylvester Judd. Bos?
ton: Roberts Brothers.
We hope we shall not bethought unchari?
table when we say that the author of this
book appears to us to be crazy. It is the
only hypothesis by which we can account
for the mass of incoherent jargon which
comes to us with the magniloquent title
above quoted. It is impossible to disentan?
gle the slender thread of story from the
heterogeneous collection of sesquipedalian
words "which stagger under their own
"weight" through the four hundred closely
printed pages. We shall not, therefore, at?
tempt the hopeless task, but will content
ourselves with indicating a few of the lead?
ing features ot this wonderful production.
"Margaret," the heroine, ia first introduced
to us "phantasmagorically," as the author
puts it. an Infant, playing in the grass near
its parents' cottage, in New England ; and,
in the first chapter, we have one or two sug?
gestions of what is really the only merit we
have been able to discover in Mr. Judd's
writing-a certain sympathy with outward
nature which shows itself, every now and
then, in bits of fresh and vivid description
The rest of the book is comprised under the
ostensible divisions of Margaret's youth and
womanhood, and, except that it grows more
nnintelllgible, as "the Real and the Ideal,
"Blight and Bloom" alternately predominate
in the heroine's development, does not differ
much from ita opening promise. Here is a
specimen, taken at random, of the ordinary
conversation of one of Margaret's- friends,
"Those super-auricular capillary appendages,
hardened with pomatum, to what shall we liken
them, or with what similitude shall we set
them forth ? They are like the eaves of a
Chinese temple, or, in the vernacular of your
arother, Nimrod, they are like a sheep's tail;
rea, eerily. But by a paradox, id est, by
iigresslngand returning, we will keep in the
straight track. The deacon, the parson and
the master, a megalosplancbnoilcal triad, have
recommended Hale's Spelling Book. Enoch
was a pupil ot mine, and, though grown sanc
tJloqueat of late, he always knew how to say
tho right thing, as his book abundantly
teaches. Webster, moreover, advertises us
that & ls no letter; the goal of every breath?
less, whlp-fearlng, abed-arlan valorous strife,
the high-sounding Amperyand no letter !
Mehercule ! You apocopate that from the
alphabet, and Deacon Hadlock will apocopate
you from the school; yea, verily."
The author iuforms ns, in the preface,
that "Master Elliniau has been called a sort
"of diluted imitation of Dominie Sampson!"
Shade of the Wizard of the North, turn not
back Trom the spirit land to avenge the dese?
cration ! No one but Mr. Judd would ever
liave dreamed of the comparison.
When Margaret first meets her future
lover, (which she does in a chapter headed,
in strict conformity with the heterogeneous?
ness of the whole book, " Margaret-Mr.
"Evelyn-Christ /") they thus discourse with
Margart!. "Am I not an automatic vege?
table-a witch-hazei In moccasins > The mas?
ter says I am of lb? order Bipeds, and in
species Suntilacren?; distinguished by thirty
two teeth, and having the superior extremities
terminated by a hand, which ls susceptible of

3:her animal, and is remarkably prehensile,
tc, &c. * * * Far my own part, I incline
:o the sylvan analogy, only my clothes are not

nyself at uiglit, and take to my bed, while the
rees sleep standing and unliooded. Then,
vhat a pother we make about eating, while
lie tree lives on Ita own breath.and, easier than
i duck, muddles lor nourishment with its
Whereto the lover profoundly responds:
"You vi ill not overlook the mind, the spirit?
he fabled Psyche, tbe inner voluntary life, the
llverelller of action, the possibility ol achieve
nent, the ajubernator of matter, the annotator
if the unit erse, the thinking, willing, loving
isplration and submission, retrospection and
irospectlon, smiling and weeping, speech and
lilence, right aud wrong, art, poetry, music,
lerolsm and seif-renunciatiou, the se!f-con
iclousnesaol inUnite Inanities-all, all demon
itrate the separateness and superiority ol
After a due amount of thi3 6ort of talk,
Margaret and Mr. Evelyn marry, and sha
jecoraes, if possible, even inore wonderful
than before. We are irrfbrajed by her hua
baod, about this time, that "I never could
"have imagined soperfect an incarnation of
"Christ as she is !" and, a little further on,
"She bas perhaps more philosophy than a
"philosopher; and if, aa has been observed,
"history be philosophy teaching by example,
"Nature is Margaret, teaching by practice.
"She also possesses much of the Universal
"Heart." In this remarkable condition we
gladly leave her. She is evidently quite be?
yond the reach of criticism, and has "out
"soared the shadow of our night" to an ex?
tent which makes it quite impossible for U3
to follow her.
In one of the critical notices which the
publishers have kindly affixed to the book
as a guide to our judgment, we are told that
"Margaret will be one of the antiquary's
"text-books." It may be so, and, until that
time shall come, we deposit it in undistarbed
re3t upon our highest shelf.
