-An Important piece of news has reached <
Paris from Germany, which has caused some j
sensation. This is, that Bismarck, some time
during this month, will visit France arter ihe I
reassembling of the French Assembly. The 1
German Chancellor, before starting, however,
desires to know the feelings ot the Assembly '
upon the subject of his visit. The interesting i
feature Of this report is, that it is tumored
that Bismarck-foreseeing a loreign war In
which Prussia will be engaged-will go to
France to secure her neutrality in case o?
need. In return for this neutrality-in case of
need-he will, lt is whispered, make desirable
propositions to France. The whole matter is
the subject of much discussion in German
poli'ical circles. 1
-The lo'Jowing, from the Bombay Gazette,
of the 28:h ot Octooer. gives the latest details
of the fearful mortality and gunering in Pe: sia,
resulting from the combined effects offamin",

Gull the p -opie continue to be much distress?
ed by famine. Charitable funds from India
are being eagerly used up. News irom Bunder
Abbas, in the Persian Gulf, Intimates the reap?
pearance of cootera, and moro starving Zoroa
8trians have left for Bombay. Letters lrom
Yezd are full of distressing details. Famine, 1
want of employment, cholera, and lawlessness
induced by desperation, continue. At the be?
ginning ol last month the inhabitants of Ispa?
han were dying of starvation, and it is stld
that matters will, in all probability, grow
worse till next Juno. At Meschid, the capital
of thc province ol Khorassan, and a town of
one hundred and twenty thousand inhabitants, ;
eighty thousand people are said, in letters re?
ceived in India up to the date of August 7, to
have died from (-tarvation, twenty thousand
have ried the city, and those who remained
have, for the most part, been seized and car?
ried away into slavery by Afghan hordes.
Great complaints are made because the mo?
nopoly of the sale of cern is Ia the hands of
grandees. The Shah of Permis said to be
becoming very unpopular. On ihe news of
his return to his capital from a recent hunting
excursion, thousands of people covered them
selves with dust and ashes, and raised se?
ditious cries before the palace. These pro?
ceedings so alarmed the Shah that for the ;
time being he would not venture into his

-The diamond fields of South Africa con?
tinue to attract throngs ot eager lortune-hunt

attended with varying degrees ol success. A
letter from a gt ntleman well known in New
York describes the particular Golconda where
he is expending his energies as a ten acre lot

secured after three lawsuits, upon an a|

once offered two hundred and' fifty po'

We hare often been compelled, io the

straight and narrow path trod by legislat

not expected thai a Radical of the strict

All Charleston yesterday put on holiday
airs. The weather was delightfully line,
and the crowds of shoppers in King
street admired, to their heart's content,
the host of useful and pretty things
with which the stores are lilied. In the
retail houses, business was even brisker
than is usual at this season of the year,
and the canny merchants who had made
their lights shine before the public in the
columns of a paper which modesty forbids
us to name, were not surprised to flud their
stores overrlowing with eager customers.
A large number of country visitors arrived
in the city yesterday, aDd the prospect
is that this holiday lime will be as rich in
pleasure and in prolit as though pestilence
and misrule were things unknown of the
To Make Men Timptratc by Act of
The Judiciary Committee of the House of
Representatives have reported favorably
upon a bill "in relation to selling or giving
"spirituous liquors to habitual drunkards
"and to other persons." This bill requires
the County Commissioners or the Mayor or
Intendant to designate all persons whom
they may discover to be habitual drunkards,
and to prohibit the sale or gift to such drunk?
ards of any spirituous liquors, under a pen?
alty of twenty dollars. The same prohibition
applies to the sale or gift of spirituous
liquors to aDy domestic, apprentice or minor,
whose parent or guardian or employer has
been designated as a habitual drunkard.
Persons so designated may have the fact de?
termined by trial before a jury, and the ban
maybe removed when the drunkard reforms.
Upon the complaint of a wife against a hus?
band, or bl a husban 1 against a wife, or of a
parent against a child, tbe sale ofjiquors to
the person complained of may be prohibited
for six months. AU incorporated compai
mast refuse employment to persons ah<
to be drunkards, under a penalty of not
than one hundred dollars, nor more l
three hundred dollurs. They who Bell
give spirituous liquors to persons to who
i9 made unlawful to sell or give them,
held liable for all damages arising from t
action. These are the main provision!
-It is painfully evident that tipplin
only too general in the Southern States, i
any law-maker who can check the flov
whiskey and encourage the growth of V
perate habits will have done a good work
his people. But we have no expectat
that any law, such as tbat which is now
fore the Legislature, will have the Blighl
effect upon the membera of that body,
upon their constituents. Statutes of bron
scope and wider reach have failed to prev
drunkenness, or have increased the num.be
inebriates. In Maine and in Massachuse
where prohibitory laws are in full force, i
really as easy to obtain liquor as in So
Carolina. Ia it not notorious that an o]
barroom ia kept in one of the largest hoi
in Boston ? During th01, war, in towna un
military occupation, the sale of liquors,
cept upon medical certificate, was 8tn<
forbidden. The only result waa that
thirsty tippler found it necessary to am
into a back-room, and swig "iron-cli
whiskey out of a cracked tumbler. In tb
casea there wa3 more 8ecrecy, and m
drunkeuneaa. The very difficulty of obta
iDg liquor excited the uppetite, and mi
confirmed drunkartla of men who would i
have dreamed of tippling if they had fot
a barroom at every street comer. Ant
only bad reaults follow lawa like those wh
obtain in New England, what beuetlt co
be looked for from a law so complicated a
impracticable aa that upon which the Judi
ary Committee make a favorable report ?
13 it likely, we ask, that County Comm
stonera or Mayora would designate, in wi
ing, all habitual drunkards? They mi?
make a dead-aet at aome poor wretch w
waa found lying in the gutter, and could i
plead "first offence" in extenuation of 1
fault. They would not touch ihe very p<
8ona whom it would be most desirable
reach. But let it be supposed that they t
their work fairly and completely. The pi
sons whom they designated aa drunkar
woulik^iecome pariaha in the comtnunil
They would be cut oil' from all employmei
and be added to ibe long roll of vagrarj
and beggara. With the gate3 barred I
hind them, they would have no incenti
to reform. No subsequent reversal of t
decree could clear them from ihe disgrace
having been proclaimed to be habitu
drunkards. And no law could prevent the
from obtaining liquor aa long aa they cou
lind ihe money to pay for it. They wou
drown their 8orrowa in the bowl, and 1
driven, nut to reform, but to despair.
The section of the bill which prohibita li
corporated compuniea from employing pe
sons of intemperate habits is an abaurdit;
These companies, out of regariKfor their ow
intereat, will do what no law can comp
them to do. Their regard for the econom
cul use of their properly, and for the prop?
disbursement of their funds, requirea thei
to employ trustworthy persona, and their ti
mitted responsibility for ?ill dam age or los
caueed by the ahortcominga of their irlflcer
ia sufficient to deter them from wittingly rt
laining inebriates in their service.
We say frankly that, in the present tempe
of the public, no legislation on ihe subjec
of drunkenness can be expected to produc
a benelicial effect. Until the habita of th
people are changed, until they accuston
themselves to iive with lesa excitement
uulil they abandon the fiery brandiea am
whiskies for light wines and malt liquors
there is little hope of a chaoge for th<
better. The temperance societiea may ac
complish aomething. Well-directed instrnc
tion and education can do more. Half
way legislation will do little or nothing.
Plain Talk from Schwrz.
In the United States Senate on Wedneeda:
last Carl Schuiz, the intrepid senator fron
Missouri, replying to a defence of the Gran
administration by Senator Morrill, said :
"The senator from Vermont told the Senat?
that the civil service had improved greatlj
under the existing administration, and un
doubtedly lt had, yet, In the whole history ol
the country, lt would be difficult or Impossible
to find lour consecutive months during which
so many defalcations and embezzlement by
public servants have been brought to light, as
the last four months. Most of the cases had
been almost stumbled upon, and therefore it
was lair to Infer that a careml investigation
would expose a great many more hidden.
Gentlemen, I tell you whatever may be said ol
the improvements that have taken place, TUE
PEOPLE OF THK UXITEUSTATES ARE STARTLED
AT TUE FREQUENCY AX? ENORMITY OF THE DIS?
CLOSURES MADE FROM DAY TO DAY. Do not
give yourselves up to any delusions on Ihe
subject. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ox THE
POINT OF DEMANDING AX HOXhST GOVERNMENT,
and they want to have al] the means for that
object that are compatible with thc law. They
demand the exposure and overthrow ot cor?
ruption, regardless of the interests of any
party or any person, lt seems lo me that WE
ARB STANDING OX TUE THRESHOLD OF A MORAL
REVOLUTION THAT RIDS FAIR TO 00 BEYOND TUE
OVERTHROW OF TAMMAXY HALL, and In that
revolution the science of'how not io do it' will
be ol very Utile avail, neither will cheap
deciamation against corruption in tho abstract'
or against the sinfulness ol' sin in general, and
the beauty of virtue, avail much. We
have had enough of ull that. TUE PEOPLE
WILL NOT MUCH LONGER TAKE THAT WORTH?
LESS CURRENCY AS LEGAL TENDER. If WC Wish
to serve the country and command its confi?
dence, we will have to make it clear to the
country that we hate no party more than we
hate corruption, and that we love no party
more than we love ?rood government."
Advertising us a Business.
[From the St. Louis Republican]
The difference between advertising as a nec?
essary part of business and advertising as a
mere incident of business, is something that
ls not generally understood. The few who
thoroughly comprehend show how powerful a
lever it may be made by those wiio use lt
rightly. We are Informed by one of our prom?
inent Filth s'.reet dry goods merchants that an
advertisement inserted by his house in the
Sunday Republican, of November 12, resulted
iu gross sales $2000 In excess of their ordinary
daily sales. The advertisement was an an?
nouncement of a lot of low-priced silk?, and
the excess of sales over the ordinary daily
business of the house was clearly attributable
to that Sunday advertisement which, in addi?
tion to this, drew the attention of the silk
purchasers to the other stocks cf the emer
prising house. We could name a large and
enterprising manufacturing house In this city
which ia eight years has increased its sales
from a steady, flourishing bittiness to propor?
tions so large that ic can scarcely supply the
demand lor its manufactures-all through a
system of liberal but discreet advertising,
which of itself requires almost the exclusive
attention of one of the proprietors. This
house, too, makes advertising a special part of
Its business no more to be neglected ihan the
purchase ot the materials it consumes in its
operations, and it finds that even tn dull times
it has its hands reasonably fall. Advertising
repays carelul study, and when thoroughly
mastered becomes the most effective agency
in business that the enterprising merchant can
employ. The public are becoming more and.
more In the habit, every day, of looking into
newspapers to find out what t'aey want and
where to get it ; and every person who has
anything to sell must conform to this popular
habit if he wants to succeed. A good news?
paper is always the best directory to the live
enterprising firm-1. Tie merchant who keeps
progress with the times would as soon neglect
the sign over his door as the advertisement in
the leading p.ipers. If the reader doubts this
let him scan our columns from day to day
look at them to-day-and he will fiad certain
evidence of Its correctness.
