-The social and domestic misery produced In
Germany hythe* war ht very great. A German
paper states'that" In thc province of Westphalia,
at the beginning br October, there were 11,817
married womeu.the Wives and widows or soldiers,
together with 22,713 children, obtaining relief fi om
the public funds. In Hanover, 9021 women and
26,418 children were" dependent upon the public
for support.': In the Rheuisu provinces there
were 14,312 married women and 29,C19 fatherless
' children who wereattcrly.dr-stttate. Thus, In only
three Prussian provinces there were, last October,
35,753 women and 73,750 childi en in a condition
of misery and want, and It ls believed that desti?
tution to the same extent prevails lu the other
provinces' of Prussia. Thc price of provisions is
extraordinarily high, and the winter, lr. ls predict?
ed, will be unusually s-vcre. The injury done by
the potato rot aud the rinderpest, has also been
severe, and the condition or the ramilles or the
peasanta left at home ls very miser ible. About
nine-tenths ofthe males are In the landwehr, and
the women abd children thaijdeprived of their
natural supporters will, it ls feared, perish from
-An Englishman who lea Paris oa the 8th aud

state of Parla. He says, that life there Is still more
than endurable. Eaoh. inhabitant receives fifty
grammes or meat a day; beer at one franc twenty
centimes, and horse flesh at one franc a pound.
Beer and mutton wilt last till the end or the
monti?* there win still remain 45 603 horses and
Immense quantities of salt meat stored at the
New Opera, so that there will be enough meat
for at lea3t"fSree raoirths. Bread ls secured till
lie ead of April, and wine and spirits for two
years. The writer was a, member of a dining
club of eight. Tho dinner wa? usually composed
of meat, soup, vegetables, cheese, wine, coffee,
and bis bill Tor the last week bad only amounted
to fourteen francs fifty centimes. In the muni?
cipal Kitchens a litre of soup with vegetables can
be had for thirty-five centimes. The poor receive
food grati*. Each National Guard receives one
franc fifty centimes dally. Those who do not
stand In need of pay hand it bick to che govern?
ment. They have been completely equipped to
tke number of 400,030. The guardians of public
security named by the government have disap?
peared, and police duty ls now done by the Na?
tional Guard. The greatest privation is the waut
of news from outside Paris.
-A review of the elections in the West ls not
more encouraging to Radicalism than the first re?
turns proved to bc. Missouri suffered the worst
demoralization, from which ihe Administraron
party has only now sufficiently recovered to as?
sert that lt was not the revenue reform sen?
timent which elected Gra:z Brown, but the
enfranchisement issue. But as the Presi?
dent was equally committed against Brown
on each point, the distinction ls of little ac?
count. Michigan, too, has been a disappoint?
ment. Two years ago Grant had 31,000 majority
in that State. Now the Radical candidate for
Governor comes In with less than half that. But
worse than all was Ute manner lu which these
recreant Republicans treated the amendment
striking the word ..white" from the State consti?
tution. They passed It by only 1000 majority, and
lae-'moral effect" ls not what wasex#R::ed. In
Illinois the Democratic gains were enormous, ag?
gregating over 41,000, while Kentucky sends nine
Democratic Congressman, with a majority of
33,000. The latest news from Florida confirms
the election of Democrats to Congress, a majority
In both houses of the Legislature, and the Lieu?
tenant-Governor. In all quarters thc breaking
up has begun, and even such victories as the
Radicals gained at the late elections are accom?
panied by losses In popular strength which give
them the character of defeats.
The Extension ot thc City Limits.
Tbe General Assembly has now before it
a bill for tbe extension of the limits of the
City of Charleston. A copy of the bill has
not been published, but it is understood that
the proposition is substantially the same as
tbat which was made and defeated last ses?
sion. The bill then, to the best of our in?
formation, proposes that the corporate limits
be extended so as to embrace all that neck
o? land between the Cooper and Ashley
Rivers, as far as tbe extreme northern limit
of the former Parish of St. Philip. This
would add largely to the territorial extent of
the city, and would add about 3500 to the
voting population. This latter consideration
is the one, we presume, which leads to the
introduction of the bill. At the elections in
October last, Charleston City was carried by
the Conservatives. The term of oflice of the
present Mayor and Aldermen expires next
fall, and it is hoped that an extension of the
limits of the city, bringing in'a large num?
ber of country negro voters, will enable the
Radical elemeut to retain control of the mu?
Upon this point there are some very ob?
vious considerations which will, it ts hoped,
be weighed well by the members of the Le?
gislature. In the first place it has never
been the*custom, until within the past two
years, to make tho Charlestons elections a
political fight. Men were chosen because
of their fitness, and not because they were
Whigs or Democrats. Thi3 is what we de?
sire now, aud if any faith ls to be placed in
popular sentiment, it is the firm determina?
tion ol the Conservative people of the city
tpel??cttufe best men, whether they be Radi- ]
cals, Democrats, or neither. What is need?
ed ie a capable and trustworthy administra?
tion of the oflaire, o? the city. The people
cannot alford to run Charleston as a political
machine, unless they want to play ducks
and drakes with their hard-earned dollars,
and to make it impossible for the city to
bear the burden by which it ls oppressed,
i But. there is a higher consideration than
this. Charleston is the largest city in the
State, and pays a goodly proportion of the
lotal State taxation. In a thousand ways,
direct and contingent, Charleston ls a bene?
fit to the State. We say nothing about love
and reverence. It is a business matter, and
we prefer so to treat it. Now, what is our
condition ? The city hos-abuge debt, which
tn some shape, must be paid. The interest
alone is over $300.000 a year, and instal?
ments of the principal fall due every year.
Besides this, there are the working expenses
of the city government. The police must lie
kept up; the Fire Department must be paid;
the roads and sidewalks require repairs; the
poor are to be taken caro of. There are a
thousand things to be done, and with a tax
of two percent, for city purpose*, on all real
and personal property, the government eau
barely mike bo'-h enJs meei. Doubtless,
lhere is some waste, but if every.dollar how
raised by taxation were discreetly and wisely
spent, the city would not have a cent to
spare. It may b? possible to reduce taxa?
tion. At all events, we hope so. On the other
hand, it is certain that any increase of tax?
ation for ordinary expenses will lower the
value of properly, check building, throw
mechanics and laborers out of employment,
aud make it virtually impossible for the city
to compete successfully with its more fortu?
nate rivals. This is'plain reasoning, and yet
it ts proposed to swell the volume of taxa?
tion. In other words, au extension of the
city limits will increase the expenses of the
government without increasing in the same
degree the amount of taxable property.
' The neck of laud proposed to be added
to the city is of small value in compari?
son." with the value of . land in the city
proper. As soon as the addition is made,
the taxes of property on the neck will be
largely Increased. Proparty-liolders lhere
will hs.ve to do their part in paying tho ex?
penses of the city. Their tax will be more
thati two per cent., because for the protec- j
tion of the annexed territory there will be re?
quired additional police, additional laborers,
more roads, more offisials, more drains and
the liKe. The cost of these will be more
than the revenue to be derived from thc new
territory. A higher tax will be needed, and
the . neck will have to pay the same rate
upon ?tswarap or potato plantation that is
paid upon a mammoth stope or a residence
upon the Battery. IQ this way, as we have
shown, an cxteasion of the city limits is only
another way of expressing the certainty of
diminished trade and increased Lax a Lion.. .
We approach this matter .ia no party
spirit. We are willing and anxious that
everything possible should be dODe which
will benefit the city and, through the city,
the Slate. May it not be hoped that the
Legislature will discuss tho City Extension
bill in the same vein and with the same
honest purpose, to act deliberately and do
what is just aa J right ?
NOTICE has been given of a bJM toautbor
ize-the commissioners of.Cbarle?ton County
to levy it tax of twenty thousand dollars.
This may be all right, but the -public would
like to know where all the money goes to.
Checks on the County Treasurer have beeu
hawked about, for months at a lime, at ten
and fifteen per cent, discount, and it i9 com?
monly believed that the commissioners have
contracted liabilities largoly in excess of
their estimated income. We should like to
see a statement of the receipts and expendi?
tures for the la?t two years, together with
a statement of the outstanding claims. Can
this be had?
.OUR Columbia correspondent assures the
public that the bill repealing the act of 1866,
which repealed the old usury laws of the
State, will bo thoroughly discussed liefore it
is acted upon. What both the friends and
opponents of usury laws should desire is a
careful consideration of the whole subject,
and a deliberate and thoughtful decision.
Wo are confident that the result will be a
determination to let things stand as they are.
AND wc find that the people of the inte?
rior are awakening to the injury that would
be done them by the passage of Mr. Wilkes'^
usury bill. The Marion Star says, very pro?
perly, that the planters whom the bill is in?
tended to protect would be the principal
sufferers. It says that we need capital in
our State, and any law enacted at this time
restricting the rate of interest to seven per
cent., when money is actually in demand at
one; two and three per cent per month, ac?
cording to the necessity of the borrower,
would be UDjustand unreasonable. No sane
man will borrow money except be can make
it a source of profit, and consequently will
never give more than a just equivalent for
TO-MORROW is the day appointed by the
General Assembly for the election of an As?
sociate Justice of the Supreme Court, and a
Judge of the Charleston and Orangeburg
CirculL We believe that the only promiuent
candidate for the latter office is Colonel
Graham, of Marion. For the Supreme Bench,
Judge Wright, the present incumbent, is
again in the field. The fact that he is a
negro may not count much either way, out
it is admittod that he is a mere lay figure on
the bench, and knows notbing of law. He
said himself, a few months ago, that he was
unfit for the place and would not be a can?
didato for re-election. Wby not take him
at bis word, and give the peoplo a Judge
who is worthy, by his attainments and
dignity, to be one of the members of the
Appeal Court of tbs State.
