while the other they send to the United States, j
as illustrative ot the respect in v> nich they
hold this country.
-Women are rapidly marching forward to
complete emancipation. A beautiful and well
educated young lady has just opened a large
boot and shoe store in Philadelphia. She has
three girl clerks, and they all weat little fancy
aprons made ot leather, so as to look business?
like, at the same time pretty.

-Bismarck has all necessary confidence in
himself. He has Instructed all thc German
ambassadors abroad thai the Prussian of'.ite of
Foreign Affairs does not need their own
opinions or suggestions upon diplomatic mat?
ters. They are simply to transmit facts to that
/Office, and he will iry to decide upon them.
Thia reduces the German diplomatic body to a
position not higher lhau a clerk or a postofflce
-Fifty or sixty years ago travel between

twenty to twenty-four hours in making the

that city at 7 o'clock in the morning and bc in
Wall street by 10, leaving at 5 in the a! ter noon
and reaching home by 8, having ample lime to
do a full day's work in any walk ot business..
From Jersey City to Philadelphia, the journey
can be made in the fast train of the New Jersey
Road In two hours and three-quarters.
-An apprehension exists lu France that the
vexed question o? the luture government lor
the country will be summarily settled by the
regular army as soon as a firm foothold is es?
tablished in Paris. They have returned from
their prisons in Germany not at all pleased
with the neglect with which they have been
treated, and their contusion with the army
that Gambetta created, and which receives
from the Versailles government the lion's
sharo ol' public recognition and' ministerial
favors. If the regular army should, a* appre?
hended, make a coup d'?tat, il is not difficult to
imagine in whose favor it would be.
-It is stated that the rich young Marquis of
Bute, tho great Catholic nobleman and hero of
"Lothalr," has never permitted himself to be
presented to the Queen at Court. Tass is said
in consequence of a promise exacted by his ;
mother on her death-bed that he would never 1
act. differently. The late Marchioness ot Bute '
bore an Implacable hostility to Queen Victoria '
.in consequence of ihe cruel persecution suffer- 1
. ed by the Lady Flora Hastings-who was her 1
sister-and whom Queen Victoria, one of whose '
ladies of honor she was, suffered, in the first 1
days of her marriage with Prince Albert, to.be '
. driven in disgrace from the court on the '
strength ot slanders long since disproved. *
-During the Franco-Prussian war it was
urged by the Prussians that the French soldiers 1
fired explosive balls from their cbassepots. '
The same charge has been brought by the Paris 1
insurgents against the Versailles troops. In '
consequence of these facts a commission oPthe '
French Assembly has been engaged in loves- 1
tigating the cause of the presence of explosive
cartridges in their soldiers' cartridge-boxes.
They have made a report admitting the pres?
ence of these explosive balls, but charge that
they found their way to the possession of the
government in certain ammunition purchased
in this country. It is not clear, however,
whether this ls a mere evasion of the truth or 1
the truth itself. 1
-AU the pawnbrokerage done in Paris ls ;
conducted at the establishment of the Mont de t
Piete, which Is under the control of the gov- I
ernmeut, and which operates for the benefit ;
of the poor. Its profits go to the support of
the elly hospitals, and amounted in i860 to
about $160.000. The Commune Instituted au
examination Into the affairs ot this concern
latelv. Its loans were lound to amount to
$7,600,000, while the value of the pledges
which it holds as security against these reach?
ed $36,000,000. The Commune proposed to
liquidate Ute establishment aud transform il
into "a social organization, assuring to the
workmen guarantees of assistance and sup?
port in case of want ol work or sickness."
-The destruction of the Tuileries and other
public buildings by thc Commune was part of
a carefully-laid plan formed in view of the
possible entrance ot inp Versailles troops or
the Prussians into the city. Three or four
weeks ago a correspondent, writing from
Paris, hai.l that it-was evident that 6ome
attempt would4be made at a grand culminat?
ing catastrophe in ihe contingency that we
have meuiioued above. Certain sewers had
?powder trains laid In them, and the Commune i
; troops had sworn to blow them up rather than
yield their positions, If lhej*had to fall back i
inside the city. The Temps, the most intelli- 1
gent- of the Paris journals, about the same |
time warned the Communists against attempt- i
lng to play the flub act of trie "Prophet" in i
these mndern times, as it would be only an i
idiotic" crime. But. in spite of ibis warning, i
the Coi.une has carried out its dreadiul i
mode of revenge on the conquerors of their ;
-A leiur Just received from Paris gives i
some uiu-re?Aiug particulars aboul the effect i
of grapeshot IQ th? gardens of some of thc
faubourgs that suffered most In nearly all,
the bushes and shrubbery have been lopped
off, ts with a scythe, about ten Inches from
the (sr?uno, while the.trees seem not to have
suffered so much as misht have been antici?
pate!. In the park of St. Cloud, where the
bomoardmeut from Mont Valerien waa so
severe, for many weeks in succession, only
five trees are reported as having been actuar?
ielle;! to the ground with shot, whereas many
ol the higher branches are lopped off and now
strewing tho ground underneath. The elegant
mansions in the Avenue de la Grand Armee,
as. also those ii- the Avenufe des Champs
Elysees, have suffered severely, necessitating
larg'3 sums to render- teem again tenantable
and where is the money to come from ? The
fine house at the corner of the Avenue de
Friedland ls completely gutted, and must be
rebuilt 'rom the foundation; and the fashion?
able quarters in the vicinity of Neurlly, well
known to so many Americans, are hardly In a
better condition. The proprietors of these are
irotr. affluence reduced to almost the verge of
beggary; for with heavy mortgages coming
due, and no tenants or money with which to
effect repairs, lt ls difficult to foresee in what
shape relief shall come.
We are right glad to hear that the Radical
orgon in this city ia really going to discard
politics in dealing with the coming city elec?
tion, and that it does "not intend to support
"every piece of rubbish which may be put
"up and duly labelled 'Candidate for Alder
" .maa.' " So far, so good. We ourselves
-whatever our private opinions may be
might not have ventured to dub a set of pos?
sible City Fathers "rubbish;" but since our
mon: audacious contemporary has led off in
theliseof the plain Saxon, we may be allow?
ed meekly to acquiesce in the fitness of the
Now, having gained so much by persist?
ent inquiry, we Want to be enlightened a lit?
tle further. The Radical organ proposed a
compromise ticket Will it tell us candidly
what support can be counted upon for Buen
a-ticket among .th03e who have heretofore
vote ! with what is .called the Republican
parly of Charleston? Shall we say a dozen
votes', a hundred votes, or a thousand ? Our
contemporary knows, or ought by thi3 time
to know, that if enough strength can be
drawn from the Radical side to render the
success of a compromise ticket reasonably
certain, such a ticket would, nat withstand?
ing individual ca3es of reluctance or preju?
dice, secure the support of the great body
of the white citizens. Under these circum?
stances, is it not due to consistency that the
"orgin" should be actively counting the
compromise - noses among its political
The Potare of Charleston.
Charleston is just now at the crisis of her
destiny. It is of the utmost importance to
her future welfare that her condition and
her vants should be carefully studied, and
that ?k il fui -counsel be called in to put heron
her feet once more. We ar? led to tfai3 train
of thought upon reading a communication
in yesterday's Courier, wherein the writer
puts forth some ?scellent views, brimful of
good, hard business sense, which merit more
than a passing notice. After instituting a
comparison between our city and Savannah,
Macon and Atlanta, to the disadvantage of
Charleston, as not having made the progress
since the war which is observable in those
Georgia cities, he says:
"E''ery one in Atlanta seems confident of
eontlnued prosperity, while we here are de?
pressed. And yet we have tho pleasantest city,
with natural advantages, superior, in many re?
spects to either of those mentioned, and IQ the*
way of business men we have as much to boast
ol as any city in the South. The character of
our business men has stood uniformly high for
integrity and enterprise; and yet our Business
increases but slowly, if at all; real estate re?
mains low and declining; but few buildings are
being erected, and the confidence which se?
cures success seems altogether wanting. (
"The causes operating to our disadvantage
are lo be sought for and remedied, if possible.
And what ase they ? First and greatest are our
heavy city debt aud taxes, and the great inefff- 1
:ient management of our cHy government. If 1
there was ever a time when Charleston needed :
i strong board of Aldermen and Mayor, it i^ ]
the present-men of undoubted integrity, I
known both at home and abroad to possess <
Inanclal skill and ability. Party issues should ?
ae laid aside and the question should be, what ..
mail we do to bring about a more prosperous .
:oddltion ot affairs. Our present board of '
Aldermen and Mayor, with all their bestefforts, '
aa ve laded to accomplish anything towards, '
?xlrlcatiug us from our present embarrass- I
?nents. and no doubt they have used their best i
efforts to that end. A new board with like in
sxperlence in financial affairs will meet with
no better success."
Eero is the rub. Even supposing we ad?
mit that the present Council are honest and
well-meaning, their palpable and universally I
admitted incapacity would in itself clearly <
point to their unfitness for the responsible i
position they hold. Why should not the I
same tul?hold good io the management of '
the business and the finances of a city, as of ?
i private individual, of a mercantile firm, or <
i railroad company? IQ looking about for a '
business manager, or for the directors of a i
raijroad, we certainly do not select men no- 1
ted oniy for their ignorance or inexperience. ]
Under "communistic" rule it may be deemed I
a sufficient qualification for the office of '<
Minister of Finance that the candidate never
possessed twenty francs at auy one time in
his life; but muter systems of government,
less "advanced," the mere fact of a candi?
date being stupid, mouthy and rapacious,
hardly cuusiituto au indisputable claim lo
consideration. We fully agree with "A Citi
"zen,': that practical business men alone
should be entrusted with the management of
our city's finances. '
lu regard to the proposed compromise be?
tween the two parties, in the approaching
election, "A Citizen"says:
"A .compromise of taking half from each
party bas been suggested, as promlsin-r good
results ; and while -being among tho first to
favor this plan, on further reflection I doubt
it? expediency, solely for the reason It will not
bring out our ablest men. We now want to
place th? mauagemeal cl our affairs in the best
bauds wt can find, and then it will be no easy
task forthfin to accomplish the desired .re- ?
suits. Tue task is so ?real that' the men we
?oed w ll i LOL risk their financial repuiutlon fu
i weak board, and very uaturally will decilne
nomination il it comes to an equal party divis?
ion; but nominate a full strong" board, and
none, we trust, wMl decline. Large money
negotiations have to be. made, and some way
devised to reduce our present debt and merge
it in new stocks or. bonds worth par value.
Wi tb. our debt reduced t0 manageable propor?
tions, improvement a haye to be Inaugurated.''
I He tien SKptche??;6ome of??be improve?
ments he things we shouloSenter'.upon: \
' .-Meeting street needs a Nicholson pavement,
from Calboun"street to the Battery." frhe Bat
.iery should be extended to the west end of
South Bay, and by bejng continued to Intersect
with Rutledge 6treet we would open up a
street that would be the most desirable for pri?
vate? residences In the city,-and make one of
the most.delightlul drives and promenades In
the country, and of which any city in the world
might deservedly be proud. A strong influ?
ence brought to bear upon the different rail?
road companies might induce them to unite in
a centini depot at the east end of Calhoun
street, with lreight depots and shops justabove,
and tracks down to the lower wharves ; and if
no track crossed the travelled road until above.
the Six Mile House, the pleasure pf a drive out
of the city would not bc dampened by the fear
of accidents caused by the passing trah?. All
these and other improvements are necessary
to make out city attractive, and induce addi?
tional population and capital. An able board
of Aldermen and Mayor, such as could be
named, strong In ability and financial skill,
might succeed in bringing about these results.
In any event, a proper management of our
affairs would not fall to be felt by the hum?
blest individual. All would become more
prosperous and enterprising. Large numbers
o? cheap houses would be built by which the
poor man could secure .a comfortable borne at
a moderate rent, and os our Wealth increased
our taxes would be reduced. Inexperienced
men cannot manage our affairs and bring
about these results, while a board of thorough
business men might accomplish much ; and if
so, is it not worth the effort of every man,
white and colored, to elect such a board V
The foHo wing appeal to our colored fellow
citizens is marked by moderation and good
sense, and must carry conviction to every
unbiased mind, il such there be, nowadays:
?gTo the intelligent arid industrious colored
men who expect to make their living by their
labor, I now appeal. Have-you not bad enough
of small politicians who raise the cry of vote
with your party for the purpose of getting,
themselves into offices they are Incompetent
to fill ? Hod they not better go tb work and
disabuse their minds of the' Impression ?he
-world-is resting on their shoulders? They
have succeeded In having the time for the elec?
tion changed to August, while many are away,
hoping thereby to elect their men, and it will
be an unfortunate Ching for the city should
they do so.
"It would seem, by this time, that those who
have eyes to see and ear6 to hear should know
that in voting and electing to office men well
known to possess high qualifications and en?
larged financial experience, each will come in
tor his share of the improved general pros?
perity, and will get equal justice at their, hands,
and secure a lair share of public positions so
far as competent to fill: Then, wiry vote lor
inefficient men, and allow them looger to
throw party strings around you, and continue
to bring odium upon your race. Free your
minds ol the impression they have constants
attempted to create, that Justice Would not be
done you if such' men, as mentioned, bad con?
trol ot affairs. Common sense, certainly, by
this time1 has taught you better. Supported
by your suffrages they will never be false to
your in ter ea ts, ana equal justice will not tall lo
be done you.
"I hope I am not mistaken in believing that
mose than enough colored men aro- now. ready
to co-operate with all good citizens, regardless
of party, and bring about the. happy result of
electing such men os I have mentioned.
"Are our colored citizens prepared to lake
this stand ? We await their action." '
These be not mere "fine words." Every?
one of them has the ring-o? truth; and we
earnestly commend them to the utlenlion of
our readers, white and colored.
The 5?UW- County of Aiken.
On Saturday, May 27th, the commission
era appointed to select the site for the court?
house und jail of Aiken County held a meet?
ing, Senator F. Arnim presiding. After
silencing ' Prince Rivers and one cr two of
hie. friends, who were disposed to delay mat?
ters and occasion discord, the commission?
ers examined plans and estimates submitted
Tor the erection of the contemplated build?
ings, and were convinced that suitable ones
could not be erected for Tess than fifty thou?
sand dollars. Not wishing to tax the. citi?
zens for this purpose, it was resolved to
petition the Legislature for leave to issue
bonds for the amount required upon the
credit of the county. The site for the build?
ings was not determined upon, but a com?
mittee was appointed for that purp.ose. It
is believed that a place about midway be?
tween the two hotels will be selected. It is
me opinion that if tbe Legislature grant the
petition for the issue of bonds there will be
no difficulty in raising the required sum.
Certainly if the Legislature wishes to keep
up any pretence whatever, of representing
the wishes of the People it will have no ex?
cuse for failing to introduce, as speedily as
may be, the principle of Minority Repr?senta
Lion into the political system of our State.
The schem? has the support of every journal
in the State, Radical and Opposition, with
>ue unimportant exception; and, as far as
we have seen, there is as yet na prominent
man of either political party who has cared
:o array himself against it. Let the news?
papers of the North, then, take notice that
Lhere is one point at least upon which we of
South Carolinaare "a happy family."
