Times unhesitatingly declared that England
would never consent to an abrogation or the
treaty of Paris. It says : "Wc were sureties,
not principa s, in the transaction, and If Turkey
insists upon holding thc Emperor bound to ob?
serve the stipulations to which he agreed, we
shall not be able to forget our own obligations as
parties to the settlement." The Standard deemed
the note an Insult to England, aud declared that
the Russian Government had not given the Bri
tish nation thc chance of yielding with any show
of honor. The Pall Mall Gazette boldly asserted
that "the retraction of the Russian circular
should be demanded under penalty of Immediate
war," and any neglecter refusal should be ground
for Instant hostilities'. It assumed an under
standing between Russia and i'nissla, and declar
ed that Prussia might do Inestimable service to
Russia by merely prolonging the negotiations, un
til the capture or Parts should leave her army
free for active operations. Then England and Tur
key, with perhaps ? little help from Italy, would
have to make head against the two greatest mill
tary powers' In the world.
-That olit-tlme lottery, tnown as the New York
Tontine Fund, ls about to close up, and thc large
property to bedlvlde-.l among the surviving mern
bers, whose number has now been reduced to
seven. The history or tbls association begins
eighty years back, when two hundred and three
subscribers contributed $:oo each to a common
fund for investment, each member nominating
some child on whose lifo he bet, retaining an In?
terest only as long as the nominee survived,
wit h the agreement tliat, when t he nuailicr was
reduced to seven, thc entire property and Its
accumulations were to be divided among thc sur?
vivors. The old Tontine Cuifeehousi, famous
in the annals of New York, was erected out or
this fund; but four y*ars ago this was taken
down and a much more raluable building put up
in lt's place. Attire commencement of the curren t
year, ten shareholders, or th'lr nominees, re?
mained. Of these. Julian C. Verplanet and Geo.
Paxton Rogers died in thc spring, reduciug the
number to eight, and causing much speculation
as-tathe. next Tue culmination took place In
the death of John P. DeWint, at Fishkill, which
leaves the property or -everal hundrel thousand
dollars to be at length divided. Thc Interest In
this occurrence ls .somewhat lessen'd by the tact
that the shares have been mostly bought up and
are now in only two or three hands.
-? Berlin correspondent or the Chicago Tri?
bune writes: "lt ls amusing to get among a
squad, of soldiers, as one sometimes finds them in
the hospitals, and hear the diff?rence and often

down sectional and sectarian differences; but
here there is much more need or lt, there being
more differences ia the customs wlthlu fifty
square miles than one will find between thc At?

-Various rumors have from time to lime circu?
lated of unpleasant relations between M. de Cata
cazy, Ru sian Minister, and our State Department,
but lt remained mr thc Washington correspon?
dent of thc New York Tribune to give them defi?
nite expression and explanation. He states that
as a response to the former's evident uneasiness
regarding this mysterious subject, or perhaps Tor
so ne other reason, he was partly ignored last
winter In the social relations required by the con?
ventionalities or diplomacy, as was Madame Cata
cazy, a briliant and accomplished lady. Their
absence rrom thc diplomatic dinners at the White
House finally became the subject of newspaper
gossip, the result or which was a special invita?
tion, which both Monsieur and Madame Catacazy
promptly accepted, and they were again to all
appearances In full favor. But the unpleasantness
rankled, and was Increased, when ihree months
ago lt became necessary ror M. Catacazy to sound
our government on its position In the event or Rus?
sia's demanding a revision or the Treaty of Paris,
then secret. This he did In the customary diplo?
matic fashion, and received little satisfaction.
He forthwith Informed lils government that the
United States would lot take advantage ora war
between England and Russia to bring about a
settlement of tho Alabama claims, but would
probably act towards both those powers as she ls
at present acting towards Prussia andFrir.ee.
This disappointed Gortschakoff, who directed M.
Catacazy to use his utmost endeavor to gain a
more definite and favorable expression from our
government. Thc attempt to do so failed, and
,M- Catacazy very naturafty felt slightly aggriev?
ed, and gave evidence of lt by omitting tempo?
rarily his customary official calls on Secretary
Fish. The blowing over of the war cloud has
naturally restored harmony.
1'avtU With Good. Intentions.
A torrid zone, not of this earth, who9e
name is unmentionable to ears polite, is
popularly said to be paved with good inten?
tions; and it is not to be doubted that the
empirics in the General Assembly of the
State aro Arm believers in their own won?
drous nostrums. They are bent on building
up a terrestial Paradise, if legislation will
do it, and may soon set about making nil
men " health}-, wealthy and wise," by a
statute as voluminous as the code of
procedure, and as luminous as thc origi?
nal tax-bill. The legislative enthusiasts
appear to forget, if they ever knew,
that there are some evils which even an
act of the General Assembly cannot cure.
Water will not flow up-hill, whatever the
laws of South Carolina may say upon the
eubject. There are forces and principles of
action which no legislation can control, and
it is, perhaps, just as well that our Columbia
law-givers should convince themselves of
this fact with the lea3t possible delny. The
only trouble is, that the public patient may
die of inanition while the members of the
General Assembly are cutting their wisdom
teeth. South Carolina is a great State, we
admit, but trade and commerce in South
Carolina are governed by the identical law3
which govern the transactions of England,
Germany, France, apd other petty-powers.
The South Carolina Legislature is a won?
derful body, we confess, but its wisdom and
knowledge are.not so great that it can allord
to pooh! pooh! the practical deductions
which Europe has drawn from centuries of
experience and thought. And if our hon?
orable law-makers and law-breakers would
Dnly take n wider range and look beyond
the borders of thi3 State, wo should not ho
troubled with llie schemes of Mr. Goodson,
who has introduced a bili to regulate the
percentage of profit which may be charged
upon certain commodities.
The object of this bill is, of course, to
prevent extortion, and to keep down llie
market price of articles of necessity. No
dealer is to realize moro than a fixed profit,
and thc poor are to obtain what they need
at the lowest possible ligure. The presump?
tion is that the articles in question are now
too dear: if they are not, there is no room
for legislation. This is plain enough, mid
we may now go a step farther, and ascertain
the manner ol' fixing ihe prices of which
irunplnint is made.
When a shop keeper buys an invoice of
?joods he adds to its actual cost a certain
sum which, in hi3 judgment, will cover the
expenses of his busiuess, and leave him, be?
sides, a fair compensation for his own labor
iud for the capital employer! Rent, insur?
ance, wages, fuel, deterioration of stock,
jud debts, ure all taken into account, and
ire represented by the dillerence between
:he actual co3t or the article, to the shop?
keeper, and the price at which it is sold.
We have only allowed the shop-keeper, be it
)bserved, a fair and moderate compensu
ion for hi3 own work'and the use of his
sapitaL Even Mr. Goodson cannot carp at
,hi3. That perspicacious member does not
?vish shop-keepers to do business at a loss
ind live on the profit. Extortion is to be
Rrevented; fuir prolits are to be allowed.
If there were only one store in South Car?
llina at which dry goods could be bought; in
ither words, if one man or firm had the
nouopoly'of tho trade in longcloths and
sheetings, the fortunate merchant would lie
empted to charg? au exorbitant price, ami
in act of tlieGene^al Assembly might be re
[uirod to keep L?8>froni growing rich willi
.he rapidity "of "is Etrdtcal politician. 'But
here is no rftdnopoly of dry goods. Ail
nen .are-J^-ib^Bell them. There is au ac?
ive competition and there is no extortion.
iVhy '.' Because those who waut dry goods
rill buy them of the house which cuts down
13 profits to the lowest point. This, in gen
ral terms, causes all the houses in the trude
o sell their goods at about the saine rate;
rtiich i3 the actual C03t with tho additiou of
fair profit, or "a margin," as it is called
j legislative circles. But all the dry-goods
Doses might enter into a horrid conspiracy
?raisa prices nnd fleece the public. Grant?
ed Birt, in that case, consumers would
ither obtain their goods directly from the
Northern markets, or some enterprising
lerchant, out of the Bing, would open a
ew establishment, sell at fair rates and do
ll the business, unless the Bing abandoned
jeir fell design and came down to his level,
'his makes it clear to the perception of
innkind in general that, where there ia no jj
lonopoly, the desire of shop-keepers to
atch cusiomers, and the anxiety of custom- ;
ere to boy at the lowest possible price/may.
be relied on as ? sure'preventive of what is j
known as extortion. It is the old story of ]
supply and demand over again.
The framer of the Profit bill may be of
opinion that merchants and shop-keepers do
not know what it C03(.s them to carry on
their business and what is a fair profit.
They think they do ^ and competition forces
them to sell as cheaply as they can. Now
if the Legislature pass a law requiring them
to accept a less rate of profit-that is. a
lower price-they must do one of two thing
either make up by short weight, or short
meas-tre, for the difference in price, or else
give up business altogether. The enforce?
ment of the law, if that were possible, would
require them, if they remained in business,
to make up in one way what they lost io
another. The public, would io no wise be
It ought, then, to be evident that the
Profii bill, if it leaves profits at their present
rates, will gn-e the public no more than they
have already. And it should be equally evi?
dent that no legislation can force intelli
gent men to do business at a loss. This, if
it is expected to accomplish anything, is the
plain English of the Profit bill.
May it rest in peace.
"Amnesty in Earnest."
The New York Tribune interprets the|
speech of ex-Governor Vance, at Raleigh, as
meaning that be will go before the United
States Senate in an attitude of defiance,
making a'boast of his participation in "the
"rebellion*'and assuming that his election
a3 senator is due to his activity in endeavor?
ing to destroy the government. The politi?
cal disabilities of Governor Vance have not
been removed, yet "he makes no profession
"of allegiance to the nation in whose chief
"council he aspires to sit," and insists upon
justification without repentance or faith.
This outspoken honesty touches Mr. Gree?
ley's heart, and the Tribune very properly
declares that nothing is to be gained by re?
jecting the senator elect. It takes the sen?
sible view that the rejection of Governor
Vaneo would not effect a change in the
minds or hearts of his adherents, and if
another were elected in his place there
might be, the Tribune thinks, a loss "in
"candor and honesty'' greater than the
gain "in apparent loyalty." The Tribune,
therefore, saya: "While Governor Vance's
"opinions and principles are as bad as possi?
ble, in an abstract point of view, his prac
"tical application of them is altogether
"praiseworthy. Ile denounces proscription
"and retaliation with commendable vigor.
.'He declares that every law, both State and
"National, should be obeyed and respected
