-Gold closed on Saturday at 9a9j.
- -The New York cotton market closed firm ;
uplands 20 cents ; sales 9833 bales.
-In Liverpool there was no cotton market
in consequence of tbe holidays.
" ' -By the death of Hackett, the American
stage loses its only representative of Falstaff,
and the English stage has no actor really capa?
ble of filling the part." '
-Messrs. Grant and Creswell have taken
one step backward In their scheme of a gov?
ernment telegraph, or rather their friends :n
tbe Senate bave" done this for them, agreeing
to report the Hubbard bili, which provides for
the hiring Instead of the purchase or existing
-The latest rumors of fraud are connected
with the recent sale of fire-arms and muni?
tions of war to the French. It ls now assert?
ed that the returns to the war department are
about $4,000,000 less, th an the cash receipts
from tbe. agents of France. Otber revelations
offrande are promised..
i -In Strasbourg committees have been or?
ganized to raise subscriptions to help to pay
the Indemnity which France owes to Germany. -
The Aleaclans are now within the boundaries
of Germany. Thia act is a Bad and touching
proof of their yearning for the people of the
nation to which-they recently belonged. It is
one of the most remarkable of recent events.
-Russia may mean, peace; but if so, why
Issue the imperial ukase just published, which
fixes tbs military contingent to be raised by
conscription in 1872 at six for every thousand
males? The peace contingent has hitherto
Tanged, from two to four per thousand. The
levy-now proclaimed will be equivalent to the
raising of from 130,000 to 140,000 recruit?, be?
tween tbe ages of eighteen and forty.
-The desperate illness- and the remarkable
recovery of the Prince of Wales seem likely to
furn" sh a sew chapter In medical as well as
political history. The treatment of typhoid in
old times was by depletion ; In more recent
times lt has been.by alcoholic stimulation. In
the present case tbii waa discarded, and tonics
given instead. It is quite possible that the
slice ese. ol tbe new treatment may give rise to
researches which will end in the disuse of
alcoholic stimulants In cases of disease where
th.?exhaustion is so prolonged as In this.
-The late Jacob Barker, whose d?a'.h, in
Philadelphia, bas recently been announced,
was one of the most remarkable men of bis time
It is stated ihat at the age of twenty-one, In
Kew York, he was owner ot four ships and a
brig, and Blood high In business. He started
penniless. Another i c st ance of extraordinary
success at au early age ls that of Mr. Newcom?
er, of Ballimore. Before he had au lined his
majority he ls said to "have acquired control of
the Baltimore Hour market. His career in
life bas been remarkable. Although not an
oldman, he ls one of the most wealthy and
influential men in Baltimore.
-The cumulative system of vc ti ag ls recom?
mended in the new charter proposed for the
Clly of New York by the commifee ot seven?
ty, to be adopted in the election of forty-five
aldermen-niue from each of the present State
senatorial di stricte. .The voter in any of these
districts, can cumulate his votes on any one
candidate, or divide them between two or
three, or as many other candidates as he
pleases, so .long'os te casts but nine votes.
Under this plan a minority of Republicans can
concentrate their votes on one or two Repub?
licans and-elect them, or even three or leur
where-the Democratic majority ls not very
large. In the same way Democrats can secure
representation in a Republican district.
-The revival of the plan" for adopting the
.British system of one cent postal cards has
already produced ? number of Inventions
w?ch aim to combine the small size of the
card in use in England with a means of con?
cealing the writing, and thus obviating the
objection urged against the system on the
ground of the publicity given to correspond?
ence. The English postal card is about lour
leches long and.thre? broad, the letter being
written on one aide and the address upon the
other. The system, lt' is claimed, bas been a
marked success pecuniarily, having added
largely to.the postal revenues of Great Britain;
but much 'trouble has been occasioned by
the cards being used as means of libel, and by
injury having been done, sometimes purpose?
ly and sometimes Innocently, by senders of
the cards, to the character and business of
recipients. t American inventors now pro?
mise to take away this objectoin, so that there
shall be nothing to urge against the cards,
their success as a financial experiment having
already been proved in England.
-Tbe Rev. Robert. Jefferson BreckinriJge,
D. D., LLD , died last Wednesday at Dunville,
Kentucky, after a long illness. He was born
at Cabell's Dale, Kentucky, March 8, 1800.
After studying successively at Princeton, Yale
and Union Colleges, he took his degree in 1619.
He then entered upon the profession of the
law, but subseqently became a clergyman in
the Presbyterian Church. In 1832 he was or?
dained pastor of the First Presbyterian Church
lu Baltimore, where he remained for thirteen
years. In 1854 he was elected president of
Jefferson College, Pennsylvania, but after two
years accepted the pastorate of the First Pres?
byterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, and
became superintendent of public instruction
for the State, io 1352 -'he was elected profes?
sor of theology In the then recently-establish?
ed. seminary at Danville, Kentucky. Dr.
Brecklnridge was active in most of the re?
ligious, moral and philanthropic movements
.of his time, and in the discussions incident to
the division in the Presbyterian Church was
eminently conservative .and temperate. He
was the founder of the common-school system
of. Kentucky. He edited several religious
publication?, and wrote a book of travels, be?
sides- a great number o? tracts and essays. In
the slavery discussion he advised moderation
on. bo th shies, but when the civil war broke
out stood "by the Union caus*.
-The monotony of metropolitan managerial
lile was varied last week by the arrival at
Kew York of several distinguished visitors
from Cincinnati, who 'were warmly welcomed
by Messrs. Morrissey, Heenan and others, and
^scened to :he St. Nicho:as wiih much pcrr.p,
priof^U?rTumstance. The visitors all car?
ried large black valises distended with green?
backs, and their avowed mission was to
"break" the gambling establishments of their
hosts, or perish in the attempt. To this end,
having refreshed themselves and brushed
from their accoutrements the dust of travel,
they repaired to the lairs of the ."tiger." At
the expiration of the first session, the Western
speculators returned to their hotel with some?
what shrunken valises. The next night they
tried fortune again, with no better BUCceBS,
and at the end of the third night all their
riches had taken wings and imitated the aerial
convolutions of the dove. The ledgers of the
gentlemanly proprietors of the studios Bhow
that the amount of $42,650 was transferred to
their account by their equally gentlemanly
visitors, who, with barely money enough to
pay the fare, and with very badly warped
black valises, are now returning to Cincinnati,
doubtless sadder, though possibly not wiser]

The New Tear.
We are all in tbe habit of looking back;
looking back upon merrier days when, "in |
"the morn and liquid dew ol youth," the [
world seemed filled with joyous promise;
looking back to the times when the blood
sparkled merrily in the throbbing veins, and
hearts beat high with confidence and hope;
looking back to the brocades and laces
which have sadly given place to the well
worn homespun; looking back, in the misery
ol defeat, to what time we drank the new
wine of victory; looking back, from the
plain, to the glittering heights where the
travel-stained wayfarer began the journey of
life; looking back from sorrow to gladness,
from happiness to grief, from poverty to
wealth, from sumptuous fare to the toil of
winning daily bread. We ail look back, and
happy are they who find, in the past, a
worthy lesson, and a good omen for the
days to come. They who have done.much
may realize tbat they should have done
more. They who have accomplished nothin<
may waken to the knowledge that one other
should not be added to the roll of wasted
years. And the peoples who have known
tribulation may see, as in a mirror, some
of their faults, ere they turn their faces,
steadily and resolutely, towards tbo labors
of the future. What was left undone teaches
what should be done, and what is done
should teach what more remains to do.
For South Carolina the year now ended
has been one of mingled loss, and gain. The
work of the husbandman bas been fruitful
beyond expectation. While other States
have suffered from unpropitious seasons, the
crops of South Carolina have been unusually
.abundant. A heavy yield of cotton, made J
at a low cost, has been safely housed, and
sells at a price which amply compensates
the farmer for his toil. The sea islands, for j
the first lime since the war, have escaped I
the caterpillar and the drought, and, as a
whole, have had a highly lucrative year. On
the other side, we know that far more than
the people have gained, by the sweat of their
brow, has been stolen from them by public
robbers. The State debt, which a year ago
was about $7,000,000, is now not less than
$15,000,000, and may be 530,000,000. Every
eflortof the intelligent citizens to control
l?gislation, in the interests of economy and
decency, has failed. Tue Governor of the
State, arraigned by his own party, has, for
the moment, escaped punishment. And to
tbe losses by official theft are added the
rigors, without the benefits, of military rule.
The suspension of the writ of habeas corpus
in the upper counties of the State paralyzed
their industries, and has seriously retarded
their progress. Too .many young men, dis
gusted and disheartened, have abandoned
their homes, to begin life anew in the dis?
tant West, ?
Ail this is blue enough. Aye ! black and
blue; but'there is a more cheerful side to
the gloomy picture. The solid gain of the
State, agricultural and commercial; the
th?ftier habits of the people; their persist?
ent and plucky wrestling with grinding
care-theBe cannot be Btolen by the Ring in
one year or ten. Tue fraudulent public debt
will never be paid. All that the Ring can
eitert is an exorbitant tax daring tbe lew
months that they remain in power. Their
crimes break them down. Before long, they
will be driven forth, with the brand upon
their forehead, condemned alike by Repub?
lican and Democrat, by white man and ne?
gro. It is as certain as anything in this'
State can be, that 'he Legislature and the
public officers to be elected this fall will be
better men than those who, these lour years,
have lorded it over the State. There is no
dogged obstinacy to stand in the way bf re?
form. The conservatives are ready to march
Bide by side with their old opponents to
achieve the triumph of intelligence and
honesty over Ignorance and vice. Nor can
the reign of terror in Ihe up-country long
endure. That section of the State, is full of
vigorous life. As soon as the heel of the
soldier is removed, the upper counties will
ag?ln move forward. And when the civil
law ls rigidly and impartially enforced,
neither white nor black shall want that full
protection and security without which no
community can flourish. The refugees will
be glad enough, ere long, to come back
home.. It will be the story of Mexico and
Brazil over again. The frugality and the
perseverance which are demanded of them
if they would succeed abroad, will, as thous?
ands have learned, make them even more
successful among their kinsfolk in their na
Charleston bas had both the crown and
the cross. The efforts of her people to
purify the Municipal Government have been
unexpectedly successful This eily has a
vigilant and a progressive administration,
instead of one in which the leaders were
knaves, fanatics or fools. There is new life
in the streets and on the wharves. The
railroads, of which Charleston is the termi?
nal point, stretch ont their mighty arms
farther and farther towards the West and
South. Even the pestilence, which for months
made Charleston a city of desolation, bas
not seriously injured commerce or trade.
There is every cause for encouragement and
no reason for despondency. Charleston is ;
mnylng onward. Her business is larger
year by year, and next New Tear's day who?
ever may, ia these columns, review the his?
tory of 1872, will tell a glad tale of difficul?
ties overcome and dangers past-of activity,
advancement and content.
Lei us put behind us all of the dreary past; (
that is gloomy and dispiriting-pick the
wheat from the chaff, and never look back; ;
except when we would malfe light of coming*
peril by remembering that greater troubles
were met and overcome. This State is bard
to kill. All the rogues and rascals io Heath?
enesse cannot destroy her beyond hope of
resurrection. It may seem "that she is in
extremis. The chuckling crew may declare
that the great heart beats faintly, and the
rattle is in her beauteous throat. But as
sure as her sons are steadfast and*true;
steadfast in working, aud true and loyal in
spine; their mother, South Carolina, will
rise again-pointing with pride to the honor?
able scars of ill-deserved affliction, and
wearing, in honor, the diader which they
only can win who have borne the brunt ol
battle, and who, from among the thorns of
anguish^and Bullering, have plucked the
blushing rose of prosperity and peace.
Th? Land Commission Swindle.
We print to-day a second instalment of
the revelations of the Radical Joint Investi?
gating Committee concerning the Land
Commission Swindle. The committee show
that the expenditures are largely In excess
of the appropriations; that the whole a flair
was "an outrageous and enormous" ff and;
that Land Commissioner Leslie was ..paid
$50,000 to resign; and that the State bas
not. valid titles to one-half the lands' pur?
chased by the Commission at from twice
to ten times their value. Well may the peo?
ple applaud the statement of the committee
that legal proceedings should begin at once
io bring "these fraudaient transactions to
"light, and the corrupt complicators to
"judgment." The whole history, however,
is not yet done. There is more to come.
WE LEARN from the Columbia Phoenix that
Charleston, Georgetown, Chester and Fair?
field are the only counties, so far, which have
contributed the fall amounts asked of them,
for the vindication of the supremacy of-the
civil law ia the Ku-Elux trials. The first
two counties gave more than was required
Charleston having contributed fifty per cent
more than her quota. It is hoped that the
remainining counties will forward their as?
sessments without delay.
MR. JOHN W. FERGUSON bas withdrawn
from the editorial control of the Laurensville
strength and nervous energy of the human body
ooght to be increased during the winter, for two
reasons: In the Drat place, diseases of the moat
deadly character may be generated at this season;
and secondly, lt 1B of the utmost importance that
during the cold weather months the system should
be put in a condition to withstand the effects of
the spring miasma, and the subsequent depress?
ing heat of summer. It is therefore advisable, in
fact essential to toae. regulate and invigorate the
digef I -e and secretive organs at this period of
the year, and of ali the stomachics and al era
Uves at present known, EIOSTETTER'S STOM?
ACH BITTERS ls the most powerful, the most
harmless, and the most agreeable. The tempera?
ture of winter would be in itself a gloriona tonic,
ir lt did not, un fe Kuna: ely, bring wi h it a vol?
ume of chilling moisture and unwholesome
winds, which have a bad effect on the sfcin and
langs. Tbese mnst beguirded against, or there
ls no security for health. Tie effect of a course of
the Bitters 1B to give vigor and tone to tee entire
organization-the superficial muscles and nerves,
as well as the internal viscera. A regular habit
of body, a healthy and natural flow of bile, an ac?
tive digest on, a good appetite, pure blocd and a
vigorous circulation of that fluid, are among the
blessings derivable from a persistent use ol Hos?
teler's Stomach Bitters, wh ch not only more
than supplies the place of the best tonics, cathar?
tics and antiseptics prescribed in their separate
forma by physicians, but perform the three-fold
work of invigoration, regulation and porflcaUon,
