citizens of Robeson County, was shot. The

ambushed in Gum Swamp, near the main

The report of his physician, however, has not

for the acquisition of the Ge-maju language.
No university or college of any importance
can now afford to dispense with a chair of
German language and literature. Whilst there
may he and has been a good deal of dispute as
to the utility of acquiring the dead languages,
there is none whatever about the practical

-The latest phase in the Wharton mystery
ls given in the following dispatch from Balti?
more, which we find in a Philadelphia paper:
"Strong circumstantial evidence of the guilt
di Mrs. Wharton will be developed, and based
on the reason why she was going to Europe.
It is alleged that she endeavored to poison
the wife of a well known merchant ol Balti
. more, who, with his iamlly, went to Europe
some weeks since to escape Mrs. Wharton's
company. It is stated that Mrs. Wharton had
conceived a great affection for this lady's hus?
band, and that she was preparing to follow
him abroad.wb.en suspicious circumstances de?
tained her. It ls believed that the evidence
to be given from the parties in Europe will be
more conclusive ol the woar.j'3 guilt than all
the other testimony put together."
-An animated controversy is going on at
Ute West In regard to the actual benefits de?
rived from tbe employment of "commercial
travellers." As an Illustration of the value of
this method ot carrying on business, it is
stated that thirty-five wholesale groceries in
Chicago, whose annual sales amount in the
aggregate to fllty millions ol dollars, employ
one hundred and filty travellers, whose aver?
age expenses are five dollars a day. At this
rate It ls ca'culated that the amount paid for
nine months, or two hundred and seventy
days, travel would bs $202,500, or about four
tenths, of one per cent on the aggregate sales,
and it ls claimed that more custom is secured
by this plan, while the-buyers are saved the
expense and trouble of visiting the market
in person. The travelling system of securing
sales, it ls therefore claimed, is economical
as weil as convenient to both buyer and
seller.* The statistics, lt Is asserted, prove
that the aggregate outlay, although large,
produces Its equivalent in an increased

A Very Peculiar People !
This is a peculiar people-a very pecul
people ! Charlestonians are light as air,
heavy as lead. To them the middle path 1
tween the mountain and the deep is usua
unknown. They look at Scylla and Char
dis, and are downright certain that no pi
can steer them into port. The least contri
thing causes them to pout for months
gether, but, en revanche, they are in<
scribably buoyant when any terrible bug
boo ia found to be nothing more terni
than lamp-black and. foul linen. They p]
the game o' see-saw with superhuman j
tience. Up and down ! Down and u
Rarely content to rest quietly on the so
Three months ago, no typical Charl)
Ionian had a good word to say for Charil
ton. The city waa going to the dogs. Tra
dull. Roguery flourishing. Nothing ci
tain but death and taxation. Nine Chark
tonians out of ten strove hard, if unco
BC'onsly, to give their city a bad name. Th
croaked and groaned, at home and abroa
unUl this came to be looked upon as
doomed city, wbicb, half a century beac
would at mest be capable of supplying Mac
berries and clams to a population of ?qual
whites and savage negroes.
This is the way that Charlestonians talki
when things looked blue. Bat their work
at all timed, were better than their word
While they vowed that all was lost, th<
still, when occasion came, worked manful
for their redemption. They must be judge
not by what they say, but by what they di
This is their idiosyncrasy. And it is i
conspicuous now as when there seemed n
chance of breaking the back of Radical mi:
rule. Then, all was gloom; now, all ;
brightness. But as this people, while sboui
ing that tu ey left ail hope behind, put thei
shoulders to the wheel and hoisted thei
wagon out oi the slough, so will they, now
while protesting that the future of the cit
and State are assured beyond a doubt, leav
no stone unturned in the effort to make tho
a hard fact which is now a pleasant proba
bility. This is their 6trong point. We mus
make the most of it !
And yet it would be belter to tnke th
cheerful view, even when difficulty and dan
ger are truly great. This prevents u fata
impression from going forth. It conceal
our weak places, and makes mach of ou
strength. We know that there is nothing ii
Charleston which should inspire doul>t am
misgiving, and this is trie line of argnmen
which the people should take, whether Pills
bury or Wagener be Mayor. The trade o
the city i3 improving. Each year shows i
substantial commercial gain. And this i
not the* result of the election last week
That election will be of" incalculable benefi
to Charleston, but it will not create, pros
perity- it will give the opportunity, and tba
opportunity must be turned to good accoun
by the hard work and personal industry o
the citizens. The door is wide open. It de
pends on the people themselves whether thej
ebter in. We have every confidence thal
the new administration will carry out a sa?
gacious, practical and liberal policy. But
wise laws no not make a people rich.
Their function is to give all men fair play,
and no favor,, in the great work of life.
In the future, then, let us avoid too mach
confidence as well as unwarrantable despair.
Acts should supplement words. This peo?
ple may talk cheerily, and justify their talk?
ing by tb^ir business enterprise and tact
They are tough. They are brave. Let nc
rival community, nor any travelling capital?
ist, have reason for saying that we write
ourselves down as far worse than we are,
and cry that the battle is lost before the
fighting begins !
A. Pleasant Parallel.
The New York Sun, commenting upon
Treasurer Parker's refusal to allow the Com?
mittee of the Taxpayers' Convention to in?
spect the public accounts, on the plea that
his books had already been examined by a
committee of the Legislature and pro?
nounced correct, remarks: "This Bounds

"London authorities that be was an honest

Jeflersou in Private Life.
Even Mr. Jefferson's friends have long be?
lieved bim to be au atheist aDd a libertine.
That he was neither the one Dor the other,
but that on the contrary he believed in God,
and was in every domestic relation as good
as he was great, is abundantly proved by
bis grand-daughter, Mis3 Sarah N. Ran?
dolph, in the charming book recently print?
ed for her by the Harpers, of New York.
Never was there a, more devoted husband,
never, a master more beloved, or a father
and grandfather more revered than Thomas
Jefferson. Letter after letter, now for the
first time published by Miss Randolph, shows
this beyond controversion. To ?the pious
task of rescuing her grandfather's memory
from the obloquy which has been heaped
upon it by his enemies, and which Randall's
admirable biography failed to remove, Miss
Randolph has devoted mental powers rare
even in 'men; and it is but simple justice to
say that no work o? its kind in American
literature/and few in English literature, Bur

over the propriety of a.lottery for the benefit
of that family, allowed MB furniture to be

Many other facts, curious, interesting and
touching, are gathered into this delightful
book, to which we invite every lover of pure
English, and every admirer of "The Author

Thc Jobbing Trade of Charleston.
We print in another column the bn3ineBS
advertisements of the principal jobbing
firms and wholesale houses in Charleston.
The aggregate capital of these mammoth es?
tablishments is counted by millions, and
their command of meanB and their long ex?
perience in the wants of the trade enable
them to offer Southern merchants advan?
tages which cannot be surpassed in the
largest cities of the North.
We believe that Southern merchants will
find it profitable to make their purchases in
Charleston instead of Baltimore or New
York. They will then know what they are
buying, and, with stocks for their inspec?
tion as large as can be desired, will save
both time and money. The Charleston job?
bers are now fairly before the public, and
are fully prepared to meet whatever demands
.may be made upon them.
"C li arie? ton. City of Duty."
[From the New York Journal of Commerce.]
The city election at Char'eston, S. C., on the
2d instant, o? itself no very important inci?
dent except to the inhabitants of that place,
becomes exalted by circumstances Into an af?
fair ol great moment to the people of the
South and the whole United States. There
no't a city or town in the land, robbed or op?
pressed by Its rulers, which should not look
Charleston and learn how confidence and the
faithful performance of electoral duty can
overturn all combinations and smash all rings,
no matter how strongly organized for misrule
and public plunder. What the honest'voters
of Charleston have done by their fidelity, tact
and energy, can be achieved by the display of |
like quemes throughout the length and
breadth of the country.
The Slate Government of South Carolina,
none but a partisan will deny, has been, under
the present management, as corrupt and ex?
travagant as that of any State In the Union.
South Carolina has been and ls the paradise ot
carpet-baggers and Ignorant and conceited ne?
gro legislators. As the State, so the City ol
Charleston. The most popnloue, the wealthi?
est city of South Carolina, ber continued pos?
session by the political vampires of the State
was a point ot the utmost consequence. De?
prive them ol that rich spot in the budy politic,
where the life-blood of the Sute flows thickest
and Etroop est, and a large part of the least
upon which they have fattened ls lost to them.
Appreciating the vast Importance of retaining
Charleston in the clutches of its party, the
Slate Legislature at the last'seeslon changed
the date of the city election from November to
August. Alarmed at the majority ot over 400
obtained by the Conservative or Reform party
ut the State election In 1870, the rulers of the
Slate thought that by fixing the city contest in
the hot month ol August, and making des?
perate efforts to overawe the quiet voters,
they would win an easy victory. It was sup?
posed that in the month of August a large
number of the taxpayers of the city-who lorm
the backbone of the Conservative party
would be off at the North for comfort and re?
laxation, and that the negroes and other class?
es who have little or no pecuniary luterest In
the fortunes ot l*ie city, and no money to spend
on health or pleasure, would all stay at home.
Never was greater mistake made. Much as
many of thc old Charlestonians would have
prized a Lip to the Southern mountains and
springs, or to the Northern resorts of fashion,
in this sweltering season, the mort of them
remained at their posts. What were vacation
junketings to them weighed against the peace,
prosperity and happiness ol Charleston
Making up their minds to fight the battle for
liberty ?ud good government with their whole
slrength, they made a careful organization, In
which every available "white conservative
voter was counted, and they appealed with
Buccess to the better class of negroes, who had
not been seduced by the hybrid government of |
tfie State, or had repented of their former sup?
port of lt. As-e.'ectlon day approached and lt
became evident that the plot had miscarried,
great excitement prevailed on both sides, and
bloody work was looked for at the polls. The
local authorities and the police were with the
schemers, and it was believed would have no
scruple In sustaining them by all nfcans In
their power. In Ibis emergency the Reform
party took the bull by the horns-a striking
instance of their shrewdness and discretion.
United States troops being In the city, leading
citizens waited on the commander and re?
quested him to detail a squad of soldiers at each
precinct. If there was fighting to be done
they thought that the regular soldiers should be
called on to take the risk and the responsibil?
ity. In asking for this favor the Charleston
Conservatives exhibited a most commendable
desire for peace, and a trust ?ja the Impartial?
ity of the Federal army officers, which was not
abused. Their petition was granted, and sol?
diers were detailed to the several precincts on
election day.' The election-came off; a .few
disturbances occurred, easily quelled; and the
result was the triumph of G?n?ral John A.
Wagener, Reformer, over Gilbert Pillsbury, the
present iucumbent, by 777 votes. Thus have
the better cillzens of Charleston, white and
black together, rescued their ilty from the op?
position, and will have her af-.Irs in their own
hands for the next two years. We hope that
they will use their power moderately and wise?
ly, so as to make a speedy restoraiion of good
order and sound government to the Cliy o'f |
What the taxpayers and honest citizens of |
Charleston have done, every other abused
community In this nation can do by similar,
concert of action and the same sacrifices of ease
