Alarming Extent of the Traffic-The

EDISTO ISLAND, September 25.
TO TBE EDITOR OF TUE NEWS.
If a witch of Endor were here, and would
bring up from one of the many honored graves
which lie around the churches ot this Island an
old inhabitant who has long since become a
denizen ot'the Invisible world, he would see
many changes at which he would wonder, but
at none more that at the low standard of mor?
als which now prevails here. He would Bee
the descendants of his termer companions
men who were honored in their day for high
principled and great uprightness of character
-engaged in pursuits at which their iorelatti?
ers wouid shudder. As he would pass along
the public highway, *?t the still hour of night,
he would see sickly lights gleaming from ex?
temporized shanties, which, ever and anon,
stud the borders ot his path; he would hear
tbje low munaring o? voices engaged In illicit
traffic, and, If led by curiosity to see what it
meant, he would discover a brisk midnight
trade In stolen cotton, reeking with dew,
freshly picked from his neighbors field. To
quicken the trade and silence what remains of
conscience, close DJ stands the barrel ot whis?
key with convenient measures of three and
Ave cent drinks. O! what has become of the
lessons we were taught in childhood and our
nursery tales, which told us the "receiver of
stolen goods was as bad as the thief." The ex
(Bfca.?e we hear is, "we ask no question?." Need
any be asked, when the cotton brought for
sale is wet with the dews of night, and smells
ot the compression of midnight air in its fleecy
locks, when deep darkness covers the earth and
none but robbers are at work ? Mr. Editor,
this is no fancy picture. It is the true condi?
tion of things on this island-a condition that
would not be tolerated in the upper districts
or anywhere else where the law, whether ad
mmhtered by an authorized officer or Ku
Klux band, would be enforced. The poor ne?
gro, if caught stealing, which ls fre-1
quently the case, is put through the
court and made to pay the penalty by
imprisonment or some other punishment,
whilst the receiver of the stolen cotton escapes
unpunished. For the life ot me I cannot see
the difference morally between the man who
steals and the one who tempts him to steal.
'Tis true, the negro has his crop of cotton and
has his undoubted right to sell lt when and
where he pleases; but "are there not twelve
hdfrrs in the dat ? If any man walk In the day
he stumbleth not" Deeds of darkness seek
the night to conceal their ugliness. The white
race boast of their higher civilization and
purer Christianity, bu*, this is a queer way of
shewing it. If this nelarious wrong continues
and it has never done so to the extent lt has
this season-the cu tlvatlon of cotton on these
islands must, to a great extent, be abandoned.
But two days ago the old and venerated pastor
of the Presbyterian Church here, whilst two of
his children were lying critically Ul at bis sum?
mer residence, had his house on the plantation
broken open and every pound ot his cotton
crop stolen. Can this people ever expect to
tpee brighter days whilst such practices are tin
rebuked and unpunished ? EDISTO ISLAND.

NEW ORLEANS, September 28.
The Picayune says the president of the board
ot health, accompanied by a delegation ot
merchants, went this morning to the Gover?
nor's office and stated that he had personally
seen every case of fever in the city, and was
satisfied there would be no lurther mortality
or any spread ot the disease. He considered
the alarm about fever here, at Galveston or
elsewhere as premature and without any just
A number o? merchants called on the Gov?
ernor regarding the Galveston quarantine.
Warmoth telegraphed to Governor Davis that
"there are but five cases of yellow lever in the
city, and but three deaths in ten days. None
of the cases are considered dangerous, and
there is no fear of the spread of the disease.
The quarantine now enforced seriously Im?
pedes commerce, ana many persons ot your
State now in this city are greatly incommoded
by it. (Signed) H. WARMOTH. "
Collector Casey telegraphed Governor Davis
that "there are only five reported cases of
fever, and the city was never In a healthier
condition. I have my family unaccllmated
here, and I would not keep them In the city
an hour did I deem it dangerous. Many of
our oldest and best physicians deny the exis?

THAT TIDAL WA TE.
Professor maury Disposes of the Hum
The folio -, lng letter from Professor Matthew
F. Maury to a gentleman In New Orleans, will
convince those not previously convinced that
the "tidal wave" sensation ls sheer humbug.
The letter of the distinguished professor is
dated at the Virginia Military Institute, at Lox
toton, September 18,1871, and is aa follows:
* have too much respect for Mr. Agassi* to
suppose that he has attempted to "predict an
earthquake," or to forecast any such tidal wave
for October 5, 6, as you describe-a wave so
immense that lt is to submerge the Southern
?tiftOUc coast, the peninsula of Florida and the
In 1870 a crack-brain In England alarmed
many people there wlih the prediction that
during the equinoctial tides of that year an
Immense wave was to come into the Mersey
and damage Liverpool.
Scientific men were called upon to allay the
popular fears caused by this foolish announce?
ment This they did by showing that the equi?
noctial tides ot that year would not be attend?
ed by any unusual circumstances whatever.
As for an immense tidal wave In the Gulf of
Mexico-that sea ls, in this respect, like the
Mediterranean-a close sea-the entrances to
which are not, as a moment's reflection will
convince, large enough to admit during the
six hours of flood, water enough to fill such a
sea to overflowing. That is why you have
little or no tides in these two seas. So New
Orleans ls safe. At any rate she has far more
reason to fear the floods of the Mississippi
from above, with their crevasses, than the
.tides ot th? Gulf with their waves.
You know the longest tidal waves are gene?
rated under the new or lull moon of the equi?
noxes. These make tate "bores" of the Ama?
zon, the Hoogly, the Pelbo and other rivers
that, fronting the tides, have open mouths in
deep water for good entrance.
This wave, after lt enters the rivers, be?
comes a moving and roartntr wall or water ten
or fifteen feet high. Warned by the noise
and alarmed by the appearance of the "bore "
the watermen afloat cut and moke for the
shore in their frail craft to escape a flu or cap?
The South Atlantic coast and the peninsula
Of Florida are not only ont of the track and
reach of such waves, but the agencies which
pile them up ar? wanting there.
Moreover, that long chain ot islands which !
4Ptaln the coast irom the sounds of Carolina
to th** capes of Florida, Is a breakwater which
would protect and defend our shores from all
the tidal waves that the combined action of
the sun, moon and planets has power to raise.

[From Hie New York Bulletin.;
The rice produced In South Carolina is the
1 best quality of rice known in the market, and
it will always command a higher price than
the best qualities of the imported. During
the past year the Carolina rice has been very
scarce, and the difference between the price
of it and the imported has been more marked
than usual. During the spring months the
Carolina rice was very scaroe, even in Charles?
ton, owing to the planters keeping back their
supplies lor higher pri VB. Taking advantage
ot these circumstances, 1000 bags ot Patna,
the best imported rice, was shipped to Charles?
ton irom this city, and the shippers were able
to sell it at a profit at one cent under the ruling
rates of the Carolina rice. This Induced the
supplies to come more freely, but still through?
out the entire season the Northern markets
have been but poorly supplied with Carolina
rice, and the Patna lias been largely used as a
substitute. The Carolina crops have steadily
increased since the war., but they still lack
more than 100.000 tier,.?? lo be equal to the
crop of 1859-60, as will be seen from the fol?
lowing table :
Crop of 1859-so.Tierces.. 161,515
Crop Of 1866-67.21,031
C'Op Of 1867-68.23,482
Crop Of 1S68-69 . 37.047
Crop or 1869-70.41,172
Louisiana rice is also becoming a staple ar?
ticle In the market, especially lu the Weatern
States. Previous to I860 this article was al?
most unknown to commerce, but since (hen
the production has greatly increased uni il the
season ot 1869-70. when lt reached 100,478
barrels of 200 pounds each. Th? crop ot th?
present season is estimated .at 49,971 barrels,
showing a heavy decrease, owing to the low
water during the spring and early summer
months. It is thought the present crop will
reach about 60,000 barrels. This crop eau be
marketed much earlier than the Carolina, and
lu time it will become one ol the most impor?
tant crops of the South.
Until recently the prospects of the growing
crops of both Carolina and Louisiana were
very favorable; but the late heavy rains along
the entire South Atlantic coast are thought to
have done considerable damage. The reports
regarding this, however, are very contradic?
tory, and it is more than probable that the
stories ol severe loss are sent abroad with the
design to Influence the market. That some
damage has beeu done is undoubtedly the case,
but from reliable advices received irom the va
rtous districts lt would seem that the losses as
yet, except In individual cases, are compara?
tively lieht. In Louisiana the crop ls being gath?
ered under rather favoruble circumstances.
Although considerable injury was dope by
the back water from Bonne Carre crevasse, the
estimates are that the crop will be in excess of
that of last year. From all the growing districts
the prospects are that the entire crop of the
the United States this year will show an ad?
vance over the previous year, both in quality
and quantity. The first of the new crup was
received in this market on the 25th of august.
Tbe bulk ot the crop will be later than usual,
as the stormy we dher bas interlered some?
what with the harvesting. The quarantine re-1
gulatii.ns hereon Charleston vessels also re?
tard the shipment ot rice from that port to this
market, and in consequence the market ls ex?
ceedingly strong and has au upward tendency.
The demand at pre ?nt ls in excess of the sup?
ply, notwithstanding the imports of foreign
during the past season. The receipts of domes?
tic rice during the week ending September 19,
were 134 packages, making 11,928 packages
blase the first of the year. There were import?
ed during the same week 4138 packages, mak?
ing 620,855 packages since the first of the year.
For the same period last year the domestic re?
ceipts were 13,441 packages, and the imports
431,965 packages. Since the tir-t ot the year
lhere bave been exported 16,847 packages,
against 43,738 packages tor the same period

The Great Swedish Songstress No Fall jr
-How She Look?-Her Deportment
What and How She Eats, if.
Everybody will read with interest the tol
lowing, from a New York correspondent of a
St. Louis paper :
Hiss Nilsson looms up pleasantly in the fu?
ture; the gaunt, straight figure; the strong,
pale face, with the hollow cheeks and the
beautiful smile blooming on her lips; the kind?
ly gray eyes; the mastic toss of tbe head, and
the gait as firm and bold as a man's. Hiss
Nilsson is staying now at the Everett House,
bbe looks much belter than she did when abe
was in St. Louis. The breezes of Newport
seem to have done her good. Tho color
ol her cheeks is better, and ber very man?
ner betrays that she is in much belter
spirits. Miss Nilsson, personally, is a charm?
ing woman. Her manners are decidedly
French; Bbe is a thoroughbred Parisian. She
ls perfectly easy, natural and very graceful.
When a gentleman ls presented to ber she
don't nod ber head as an American lady would,
but gives her hand with a frank, pleasant
smile, as it she had known him ever, ever so
long. Tou are immediately at your ease. Tou
wilibe prompted to say whatever comes upper?
most in your mind, and she will look at you
astonished with her fine gray eyes, as ii to Bay :
"You dazzle me with your brilliant intellect."
She ls full of these artifices, which make you
think her, after having been lu her company
half an hour, the simplest, the trankest, tho
most charming woman in Christendom. To
see ber eat is a pleasure. She does not eat
like a fine American lady, with her fingers on
the very lip of the fork, and as If she was just
condescending to touch mortal food out ot
compliment lo her guests; no, she handles
knlle and lurk with freedom and vigor, vio?
lates all the decrees of fashion in holding Hie
iork at the lowest end, and eats as ii soe was
no lady of fashion at all. but only
A VERT HTSORY W OMAN.
She does not hover over the food ; ste cals
it, and eats ii with such alacrity, vigor and
relish, that lt makes your mouth water. She
is very fond ot champagne; drinks lt at all her
meals, a ad is indeed the gayest, happiest
creature alive. If a man is consumptive, or
has the spleen, let him be a day in Miss Nils?
son's Company and he will be well again. The
cure ls infallible. There's no doubt ot it. Euro?
peans all know how to enjoy themselves,
when Miss Nilsson travelled ia tte West, she
used to have little dinner parties with Brig
noli, Verger and Yleuxtemps very often, far
Strakosch, the magnanimous, gave' Miss Nils?
son unlimited sway with regard to Incurring
dinner bills, so that she used to Invite nearly
every genteel man who was presented
lo her, ut least once to dinner and cham?
pagne. These dinners were feasts for
the gods. The taiklDg. and laughing,
and Joking, and anecdote telling, an l
merrymaking that were going on there-wetv
there ever such jolly dlnuers.' Brlgnoil was
full of tun; Verger was fuller; and Miss Nilsson
-well, I shall not say how she did cut ?ip; it
would not be in keeping with the dignity ol
the muse and ot her votarv, who has been glo?
rified and rosined until I 'thought nothing re?
mained more of her than essence pure angel?
ic; whose voice has been likened to drippicg
diamonds, lalling or buobling crystal; over
whom this matter-ol-f act world has gone crazy.
Alas ! in beelsteak and onions the tond illus?

him whose bread she kindly buttered-Un*

cence of his Ute engraved upon his tombstone,

OS!.Y A. MORTAL.
Miss Nilsson herself, although she is vain,
like every one, is quite cynical. She looks at
the flowery enthusiasm wlih which she Is flut?
tered through monetary spectacles, and has an
eye to the malu chance. It you rave aboul
her in a newspaper, sbe likes tl very well; she
Isa business woman, and knows exactly how
much lt is worth. But if you rave about her to

and County ot New York :
NEW YORK. September 25.
To the Democratic Electors oj \'<e City of Hew
The time ha3 come ior Democracy, In its
great stronghold, tc pas3 au ordeal from which
it shall emerge, !.r not unscathed, at least as?
suredly purified and exalted. It ls an hour,
not for misgivings and despondency, but rather
lor good hope and great rejoicing, that at last
the opportunity offen for the redemption of
the grand old party from the shame and deg?
radation into which it has been steeped by the
corrupt practices o? some ol' Ita leaders in tbis
city. No true Democrat, though humiliated by
; the exposure ol the dishonesty o:" bis partisan
chiefs, will contemplate that exposure with re
I gret, lor il brings to him the privilege, the duty
and thc power of devoting himself, with glori?
ous promise ol success, to the sacred mission
of cleansing the temple ol his political faith.
There ls uo need to recapitulate the crimes
of the men to wnom hus been delegated the
guardianship of Democratic iaterems in thin
city. The shameful record ls before the world,
in al! the hideous blazonry ol unmitigated de?
pravity. Honored willi trusta 3iid responsibil?
ities that would be, to every heart suscepti?
ble to honorable and manly feeling. Incentives
to scrupulously honest conduct, they have
been proreu faithless to every trust and to
every obligation, and huvo fielded dtagrace
lully to th? prompting? of miserable avarice
and dishonorable ambition. Not only have
they shamed their party-for it ls not a simply
partisan interest that appeals to you-they
have brought the municipality which they have
misruled to the verge of ruin, betraying the
honor aud weakening the credit of the first
city o? the republic.
It can do you ueither service nor pleasure.
Democruta of New York, to rehearae the his?
tory of tolly, fraud and treachery, the proofs
ot which have beeu paraded before the public,
against the leaders of Tammany Hall. In our
courts of justice, in our public journals, in our
public streets, In the hou-eholds of citizens of
every class and of every partisan creed, the
humiliating story has been made ihe theme of
discussion, of corrow and of indignation. 80
far as legal responsibility is Involved, the ju?
diciary will doubtless do their duty. Do yours,
Democratic citizens, where political responsi?
bility is involved Too long has lt been a re?
proach and an Injury to Democracy that four
men should wield Its po - er In Us stronghold,
even were those four as honest and capable
as they have been proved corrupt and reck?
less. The tremendous machinery of such au
organization should, under no circumstances,
be abandoned lo the absolute sway of any lour
individuals, whomsoever they maybe. "Such
a dictatorship naturally Invites a spirit ot cor?
ruption into its narrow sphere. Let us here?
after protect the broad piinclple ot Democracy
from the peril of false Interpretation from the
Ups of any petty combination of cracles.
We appeal to the Democratic electors of the
City and County of New York to put aside, at
(bis crisis, the lesser objects 01 their several
local and interior organizations, aud, in the
presence of the common danger, to unite
against the common enemy, making the down?
fall cf the present administration tu Tammany
and the redemption ot the Democratic party
their paramount political obligation.
