cents; soles 367 bales.
-In Liverpool cotton closed quiet; uplands
9a9td, Orleans 9ja9}d; sales 12,000 bales.
-New York boot-blacks have reduced their
tariff to five cents a shine.
-The President's farm near St. Louis com?
prises about 800 acres, valued at an average
of $250 per acre. General Grant became the
possessor of .the main tract In 1866, and has
added to its area and made many valuable Im?
provements. His stable contains a dozen fine
blooded horses, including a Hambletonian
stallion and colt, and colts by Bashaw, Flying
Cloud and Legal Tender, all in splendid con?
dition. A large flock of Southdown sheep
graze near the house, with herds of Holstein,
Devon, Ayrshire, and Alderney cows in the
adjoining pasture. The President intends to
make this his home on his retirement irom
office, and ls having it pat in first-class condi?
-From the China papers particulars are re
. celved of the foundering of lbs ship Prince of
Wales, on her voyage from China to Slam. She
started on the 26th of June, and directly en?
countered threatening weather, which rapidly
grew worse and worse, until at 4 o'clock on
the morning of the 27th the ship began to set?
tle down by the stern. The captain could not
find out the reason for this at first, as no great
leakage was discernable below; but it was
afterward lound that the bair ?-eves bad bsen
dashed in by ibe heavy sea. Purr ,ring was not
attempted as the ship was settling fast, and
the officers and crew appear to have done no?
thing but stand and watch their doom. There
were tbree boats on board, but they are said
to have been unserviceable. At 6 o'clock the
vessel sank head-foremost. Groups ol heads
were seen struggling in the water for some
time, but they disappeared one by one, and
nearly all perished miserably. After clinging
to a spar thirty-three hours, three nearly ex?
hausted seamen were picked up by a Macao
Junk, and these are, os far as is now known,
the only ones, out of a crew of fifty-four, that
have survived to tell the tale.
-An extraordinary case was recently before
the Criminal Court of St. Louis. A man cam?
ed Patrick Burns was some time ago convicted
of murder in the first degree and sentenced to
be bung, but the Governor of Missouri com?
moted his punishment to imprisonment in the
penitentiary for ten years. Burns ls in doubt
whether to accept the Governor's grace or not.
Hanging is soon over; ten years in prison is a
long time. On the whole, his preferences are
for the gibbet; but. not wishing to decide the
question hastily, and having been accustomed
of late to rely on legal c/lvice, he hos consult?
ed his lawyer, and will be guided by that indi?
vidual in making up bis mind. Feeling strong?
ly inclined to be swung up, Burns was solici?
t?os to know li any legal obstacles stood in bis
way, in consequence of the Governor's action.
He applied to Judge Prim, of the court which
sentenced him, and was gratified to learn from
that functionary that the option-rope or pris?
on-rested with the prisoner exclusively. A
pardon, or commutation, was in the nature of
a deed addressed to the convict, said thejsdge,
which he has a right to accept or reject. If
Burns preferred hanging, the judge would ac?
-An arrangement has Just been concluded
between the United States and Germany, to'
take effect on the first ot October next, which
reduces the rate of international postage for
prepaid letters, if changed between the two
countries by the closed mail via England,
irom ten to seven cents for each rate ol half
an onnce or under. Unpaid letters so ex
Changed are to be charged with double the
prepaid rates, and the insufficiently paid let?
ters for the postage for unpaid letters after de?
duction of the amount prepaid. The arrange?
ment thus establishes a uniform postage ol
seven cents or three silver groschen per single
rate on prepaid letters exchanged between
the United 8tates and Germany on and after
the 1st of October proximo, whether transmit?
ted via England, or by the direct lines via
Hambarg or Bremen. It ls particularly to be
observed that this reduction applies to letters
only, BO that all correspondence other than
letters posted in the United States for Germa?
ny will continue subject to the same rates of
postage and to the same conditions of compul?
sory prepayment as are now applicable there?
to. Postmasters will levy and collect postage
on and alter 1st ol October next.
-The trial of Mrs. Colburn for the murder of
Bufenburg, herlormer husband, ls drawing its
slow length along in the London, Ohio, court?
room. Wednesday's proceedings assumed a
more important phase than hitherto, and the
audience was very large. The trail of the hid?
den prosecutors was more marked, and occa?
sionally points of dramatic interest occurred.
The sensation ol the day was the establishing
of the damaging fact for the prosecution that) ?
tbs inquest h<?!d on the exhumed body ol Buf?
enburg was illegal. The prosecution suffered
further at the hands of subsequent Witnesses.
A nephew of the deceased testified that he
thought Colburn had visited the house only |
about twice a year, and he could not say that
his visits were objectionable to Bufenburg.
Another witness said that Mrs. Bufenburg had
told her that Colburn had come to Bee her
twice, under the impression that she was Bui
enburg's daughter. On the cross-examina?
tion the witness said that Mr. and Mrs. Bufen?
burg seemed to live very happily together,
and she never saw anything to disturb her
confidence in Mrs. Bufenburg. Two or three
livery stable men of London were examined
as to the frequency of Colburn's visits to Mrs.
Bufenburg during the life ol ber first husband,
but they did not establish more than two or
three visits. So far the delence i3 having de?
cidedly the best ol the trial.
Too Much Conference !
The Camden Journal is *"f?r Conference,
" and early organization, not agitation."
IQ the opinion, of oar contemporary, there?
fore, the Conference proposed by the Bam
well Sentinel will be the beginning Cf such
organization as may be required for the
canvass of 1872.
We are convinced that no organization
worthy of the Dame caa be had before next
spring, or sommer. There might be a club
here or there, bht it is not feasible to enlist
the active sympathies of the people, at this
time, in a contest which will not t.".ke place
for a year or more. Over-haste, in these
matters, is as fatal as a blind postponement
of the work until the very last minute. But
there is a stronger objection. Organization
must be preceded by the adoption of a dis?
tinctive name and distinctive platform. Po?
litical dabs must know what to call them?
selves, and their members naturally demand
an objective point, or guiding principle.
And we hold that only a body of delegates
deliberately chosen by the people, for the
purpose, have any right to determine ques?
tions so momentous. Emergencies may
arise, SB in 1870, which warrant a Confer?
ence, but in ordinary seasons it is best that
political action should spring from the root
of authority, which is the people. Any so
called Conference held without an impera?
tive necessity might expect, therefore, to be
popularly regarded with doubt or distrust.
One point in the Journal's article we fear
that we do not understand aright It
speaks of the proposed Conference as an
assemblage 11 representing nobody, respon
" Bible to nobody, and binding nobody.
We cannot conceive oj three more stringent
reasons why Ute Conference j)roje<A should \
be abandoned. And yet this is hardly what
the Journal desires !
Sip Doxy !
We find the following paragraph in the
last issue of the Barnwell Sentinel:
"We can verv well- understand how the Re?
publican can compliment THE NEWS tor its
brains in not seeing the thing (the Columbia
Conference) in the same light as the Sentinel.
It may be damaging to the party whom the Re?
publican, Mr. Greeley and Major Delaney de?
nounce in this State."
The Sentinel, it will be seen, does not
allow its own infallibility to be called in
question. Orthodoxy, it 8ay3, is my doxy
heterodoxy is another man's doxy. THE
CHARLESTON NEWS diflferB from the Sentinel;
therefore, it is giving aid and comfort to the
enemy. This dogmatism is not argument;
but it will give the people a foretaste of what
the opponents of a Conference may reasona?
bly expect in November.
*. Probabilities P'
The difference of opinion which exists
among Democrats upon the subject of the
New Departure, is a source of great joy to
the Radical politicians. They will keep
their courage up, if whistling and hurrahing
can do it; although some of their leading
organs in the West tell them, without minc?
ing words, that any Republican who thinks
that tho next political race will be a walk?
over for Grant, will find himself lamentably
oat of pocket on settling day. The Cincin?
nati Commercial, an iudependent Republi?
can journal of wide-spread influence, thinks
that the Grant party stand a good chance
of losing the flesh-pots, and warns them that
they will fall into the hands of the enqmy
unleaa great care be taken in the selection
of a candidate. According to the Commer?
cials correspondent, the probabilities nre
that the States, in 1872, will be divided as
Republican States. Democratic States.
Maine, New Hampshire,
Massachusetts, New York,
Rhode Island, New Jersey,
North Carolina, Maryland,
South Carolina, Virginia,
Florida, . West Virginia,
In this list the Radicals are given the pre?
ponderance of doubtful States ; for they hold
Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina and
Terar by a very uncertain tenure, while the
doubtful Democratic States are of much
less importance, comprising, perhaps, Con?
necticut, Indiana, Arkansas and Nevada
The Democratic party have gained New
Hampshire, Missouri and Indiana since the
last Presidential election, and are gradually
but surely coming to the front in all the
Sonthern States, because their adherents
there have almost a monopoly of the wealth
and intelligence. On the other hand, the
Republicans have not gained a solitary Slate
since 18G8, and if they lose either Pennsyl?
vania or Ohio, they must take a permanent
This sort of talk, and the fact that the
Commercial comes out strongly for Harlan,
of Kentucky, as the Republican candidate,
indicate that the Wost i3 getting tired of the
monarch of LOL:: Brunch.
How tho floaty Goes :
A realizing sense of the weight ot taxation
we carry comes to us at least once a year. The
announcement ol Mr. Boutwell puts the fig?
ures for the last fiscal year at $363,323,940 re?
ceived irom Federal taxes upon the people.
Adding other exactions ol the General Gov?
ernment, the amount will easily reach $400,
000,000, which is the pleasant little sum of
more than a million a day, Sundays included.
This sort o? thing has now been going on for
six years since the close of the war, during
.which time the country has contributed at
least $2,700,000,000 t0 the Government. In
addition, there has been the sale ot munitions
of war, the proceeds ot which have been un
accounted for, raising the amount of money
passing through the hands of the Government
in six years to $3,000,000,000. As Mr. Bout-1
well's great expectations are founded mainly
upon his reduction of the public debt, it is
only fair to compare the amount he has re?
ceived with the extent of his performances In
that direction. With three thousand millions
taken from the people, he has reduced the
debt by only two hundred and eighty-four mil?
lions. Where has the other $2,716,000,000
gone ? Extravagance, corruption and an army
of office-holders have eaten it up, and left this
paltry showing for Ute financial secretary.

Its astonishing cures or dy spep; li, and a'l rorms
