-The Hon. Jacob Thompson, President Bu?
chanan's secretary ot the Interior, has recent?
ly held a political conversaba at the White
Sulphur Springs. His remarks were interest?
ing as .coming from a resident of Mississippi
and tending to show the state of feeling among
Democrats there. He said there is little or no
political excitement in that State at present,
and that everything is working quietly and
peaceably. He denied, emphatically, the ex?
istence of a E'j-Klux in Mississippi; the few
robberies and outrages that have been com?
mitted there being the natural sequence of
every great war or revolution. Ia regard to
the sentiment of the South toward the "New
Departure," he said that for himself he did
not disapprove of lt, and that the Southern
people will and do acquiesce in the movement,
but they will be averse to taking any promi?
nent part in either the formation of a plat?
form or the nomination of a candidate. They
are resolved, he added, to be guided in all
things by whatever is determined upon by the
Northern Democracy, and to accept the con?
stitutional amendments in good faith. After
some further discussion concerning the ne?

new modes and methods for transmitting tele?
graphic messages In the language of Ah-Sin

China Submarine Telegraph Company have
always, been sadly puzzled how to hit upon the
right one which would solve the mystery and
work satisfactorily. By late advices from the
Flowery Kingdom, lt seems, however, that
this difficult problem has been at length solved,
and by the following plan: Some few LUCJ

which is, of course, written ia Chinese, the
native clerk Belects in order the correspond?
ing blocks from the case, and prints off the
numbers on their reverse. This he hands
to the English operator, who telegraphs the
numbers to the destination desired. Here the
reverse process is gone through, and, the num?
bers contained lu the dispatch having been
selected from, the cases, the characters are
stamped on a Blip of paper, and thus Ah-Pe is
put in possession of the cherished wishes of
Ah-Sin through the medium of bis native lan?

The Crops In South Carolina.
We print to-day a number of letters from
our attentive correspondents in the interior,
which letters, together with other trustwor?
thy information in our possession, enable us
to make the following general estimate of
the probable cotton and corn crop3 of South
Carolina for the current year:
1. With the most favorable seasons, the
cotton crop of this year will be at least
thirty per cent lesB than that or last year
the estimates range from twenty-five per
cent to fifty per cent, according to locality.
2. With unfavorable seasons, the crop
will not exceed one-half of the crop of last
year. Upon this point oar estimates agree
3. The crop of the present year will cost
at least twenty-five per cent, less than the
crop of last year. The estimates range
from ten per cent to thirty-three per cent
4. The crop of breauetuffs, although
there was a large increase in area, will not
be larger than is required for the wants of
the State, and, in some localities, there will
be a deficiency.
This is the substance of all the letters
and private advices received by us during
the past two weeks, bat it must not be for?
gotten that heavy rains or high winds would
seriously diminish the yield of cotton, and
reduce the crop of the staple below our
The fact that cholera has made its ap?
pearance in virulent form in Western Europe
need not alarm anybody, though, as one
journal has it, "the scourge is ody a fort?
night from our shores." Getting alarmed
only makes it the worse for the people. But
if the news can induce the authorities to
cart away the refuse that swelters. in the
streets at the outlets of alleys, or to dilute
the slime which renders the gutters as offen?
sive as cesspools, in some quarters, every?
body will be glad of it The city extends
an effuse and unlimited invitation to cholera
or any other epidemic disease. The streets
are not clean, the water supply is not suffi?
cient and the sewage "smells to heaven."
Communism In America.
.Communism marches upon ns even more
rapidly than the cholera. While the latter,
advancing from Russia, has but reached the
borders of Germany, the former bas al ready
broken out almost simultaneously iu St.
Louis and in Boston. It is true that, in
terms, the new Labor Parly ?3 not La Com?
mune, but the apostle of American labor is
Benjamin F. Butler, and the platform laid
down at St' Louis includes all or nearly all
the principles of the Internationals of Eu?
rope. Our American Communists boldly
announce their purpose to attack, first,
capital, that is, banking and moneyed
monopolies, the bete noir of all labor unions
and associations; secondly, they attack all
railroad and transit monopolies; then, all
manufacturing monopolies; next, land
monopolies; and, lastly, all commercial and
In plain terms, the Labor Party of Ameri?
ca attacks accumulated wealth wherever it
exists, and in whatever form or disguise it
may assume. More than this, it attacks
all corporations by which wealth may here?
after be accumulated, and reserves to itself
the right to declrre by word of mouth how I
much property corporations and individuals 1
shall be allowed to gather and retain.
,:Sore," say they, "is our limit; beyond it
"oo company and no man shall ever go."
Ver}' bold this, and broad enough to
satisfy La Commune itself. On'this plat?
form of property limitation, and of monopo?
ly abolition, they propos* to go into the next
Presidential canvass, vi th candidates op?
posed to all existing parties, and pledged
only to labor reforms. To us in the South,
the matter may seem ridiculous. Not so in
tba North. There labor is the paramount (
prince, as regards numbers merely. Money
and organization are lacking. The first is
not to be bad for the asking; the second <
may be attained by aid of the evil genius
or Butler. And Wendell Phillipa declares
that the Republican Party has but the choice
of death or the adoption of one of two ques- .
tiona-the woman question or the labor
question. He counsels the adoption of the
latter, leaving the former to be settled by
the States. In thia view, the matter looks
A Chance to Attract Immigration.
It will be seen by the following commu?
nication, just received in thia city by Dr.
Francis P. Porcher, that a thoroughly sys?
tematized effort ia now making in England
to intelligently direct the stream of emigra?
tion from that country to euch portions o?
the New World as shall afford the best
Gelds for their labor and give promise of the
most satisfactory returns. The extent of
co-operatioo requested on this side of the
Atlantic ia the communication of such par?
ticulars regarding the different localities ia
the United Statea as may guide the thou?
sands of intending emigrants to a judicious
selection of their future abode, and surely
there can be no duty more consonant with
the dictates bot' >f patriotiara and enlight?
ened self-interest than the furnishing of
Buch information regarding the Palmetto
State as shall attract to her shores a fair
share of thia much needed labor, intelligence
and capital. The letter, which fully ex?
plains itself, is aa follows:
THE UNITED STATES 1
EMIGRATION AND BANKING AGENCY,
No. 36 FINSBURY CIRCUS, LONDON, ENGLAND, |
August 2, 1871. J
Dear Sir-We have pleasure iu informing
you that ting agency, being very largely en?
gaged ia forwarding first-class emigrants to
the United States, proposes to issue, at once,
in this country, a newspaper specially devoted
to the United States, with reference to the
subject of emigration, and, also, a volume
covering a description and particulars of each
State in the Union. The vast number of
superior mechanics, artisans, farmers, small
capitalists and others (the real bone and sinew
of England) who desire authentic and reliable
iniormation upon the advantages and privi?
leges afforded by the United States, is almost
beyond belief, and were it not that we are in
active and incessant communication, through
some four hundred agents, with all parts of
this country, we should scarcely ourselves
credit this eager desire on the part of the
very best classes to go to the United States.
The supply of this much needed information
we have undertaken, and ask your aid by
sending to us all the information within yonr
power bearing on the needs and requirements
ol those requiring skilled or unskilled labor
of any description, or of opportunities for the
investments of small capitalists, (not mere
speculations. ) Your personal position may
enable you to mention our purposes and aims
to influential persons, and we shall be happy
to correspond with all anxious to avail them?
selves of such advantages as we offer. Any
communication or announcements of suffi?
cient interest shall be Inserted free of charge
in our newspaper, and will always be welcome.
We trust you will bear this in mind, and we
especially invite your mention of our purposes
and action in any quarter where good may
result. Our Mr. Reed ls himself an American,
and, therefore., we know how to appreciate
and use such information as you may give to
us. Could we receive copies of some of the
principal newspapers in your State, they
would be of great service to us.
We remaio, dear slr, very respectfully,
REED ?? KEIM.

The Vienna Imperial Academy of Sciences
bas offered a prize lor the discovery ol comets.
Reference is made to the fact that very few
comets have been discovered ol late years,
notwithstanding the multiplication ol tele?
scopes. Ia this they find occasion tor regret,
considering the rel ilion between shooting
stars and comets, and (as the academy might
have added) solar phenomena. And astrono?
mers generally will agree with them In think?
ing it "exceedingly desirable that we should
"know more than two or three hundred out
"of the many thousand ol comets which un?
doubtedly belong to our system, especially
"as most of those which we know are calcu?
lated only In parabolic orbits.'-' Recognizing
the fact that observatories, with their regular
work, cannot spare time for enterprising
'.sweeping" of the sky ia hope of discoveries,
they appeal to amateur astronomers to under?
take the work ia the interests of science.
The lime allotted will expire on the 31st ol
May, 1872, and the prize ls twenty Austrian
ducats, or a gold medal ol the same value.
The prize ls lo be given for the first eight
comets discovered in the year; and it Is stipu?
lated that the comets shall be telescopic, that
is, invisible to the naked eye, and that newe
ol the discovery shall be immediately sent to
the academy. The award of prizes ie to take
place at the end of May In each year.
An English paper says that no English novel
worth readiag ls now stolen by American pub
libbers. Every novelist ot mark, it says, can
sell bis advance sheets to an American pub?
lisher for as much as he gets iroru home pub?
lishers. "It is not, therefore, the mythical
..notion about American publishers getting
"all our good books for nothing, which ex
"plains their cheap price and large sales.
'.The explanation is to be found In the much
"larger proportion of readers to population
"there than here, in the national liking for
"possession, and probably, too, ia the na?
tional quickness and impatience which
"would rather pay half a dollar to get a book
"to-day than wait until to-morrow and borrow
"it for a penny. The objection so unjustly
"entertained and so successfully pressed
"agalast an international copyright by so
"many Interests la America, ls not by any
"means to be Bummed up as a publisher's ob
'.Ject i on to paying a foreign author. It is a
..question of protection to various clamorous
"traders and Interests-paper makers, binders
"type founders, and so on. The American
"publishers aad the fjreigu authors could set?
tle the matter easily enough among them?
selves, If ll were left to them."
