. -Tbe world oses 260,000,000 pounds of tea
each year, and 713,000,000 poonda of coffee.
China furnishes nearly all o? the tea and Brazil
over one half of the coffee. Over 140,000
pounds of Java and 18,000 pounds of Mocha Is
produced. The United Stales consumes near
ly one-third of ail the coffee produced in the
world and the' English are the greatest ter
drinkers ont of China. The Germans rank
nexflto tbe Americans as coffee drinkers. The
Americana consume about s'x pounds o? coffee
and one hundred and twenty-two pounds of
beef per head/counting adults and infants,
each year. This lpoks large, but then the
Yankees never do anything by halves.
-The Jewels belonging to tbe Apollo Gal?
lery of the Louvre were concealed ?during the
Commune IQ a ?mall room, carefully walled
np, ou the second story or the building erected
by Francois I, over the Salle Henri Hand the
Salon des Sept'Chemin?es. The*work had
been, so^kilfully executed that the insurgents,
during i he ir two. months' occupation of the
palace, sfust have passed before it a thousand
time? without suspecting that this treasure of
jewelry, ?ock?crystaL enamels, Ac, estimated
at 50,000,000 francs, was so near them." The
Credit of this success IS due to Count Clement
de R's, conservator, and to the employees ot
the museum,, who were several times on the
1)01111 of being shot for refusing to disclose the
place of concealment,
' -Tue Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Inquirer says that Secretary Fish
ls determined that the administration shall
pursue only a passive policy, and threatens to
leave the Cabinet If the President allows any?
thing lo 'be '.doueT walch; may lead to a war 11
with Spa!D. He has made ho'arrangements to | i
remain through the winter, and ls temporari?
ly _stopping with Secretary Robeson. He bad
^aadeeome el ayr of trying ter get a "house, but
nSB inc ne, although he couid"^ have got several
If he had really desired one. It ls not unlikely
that affairs will come to a crisis next week, as
- on the reassembling of Congress lt ls the In.
tention of General Banks and others: to force
the admin istraiion: to- take ground ina man?
ner that will show Spain that toe United
States ls a power not to be longer trifled with
aa lt has been for over two years. In that
event Mr. Fish will probably re: ire.
-It has never been determined exactly
hdw many persons perished in tte Chicago
fire. The estimates have varied from two
hundred to five hundred; but, a Chicago pa?
per says, when lt ls remembered that the hot
breath of the conflagration withered to ashes
great cubes of building stone, and then blew
the ashes out into the lake, it ls Badly probable
that many human bodies suffered precisely
the same fate. Over one hundred bndle?, or
portions of bodies, have, .been recovered.
'Nearly ?1! of these have been identified, and | <
the work of clearing'away the rubbish is jet a
long way from completion. Now, through
? the exertions o? the Relief and Aid Society,
the names of a host of others have been pro?
mulgated as mis-lng since the Are. Of these,
lt ls fair to presume that at least three-fourths
must be added to the list of victims, making
the number In all probability about four hun?
-The London Spectator bas the following
relative to the ramlae lu Persia : "Mr. A. J. S.
Adams,. travelling in Teheran about two
months ago, says that-in the crowds who
swarm in the barrack square to receive a
dole of small diver from the Shah, hundreds,
men and women, are literally stark naked,
worri to the bone and coveted with sores."The
people follow the visitor, howilng for bread;
two men lie upon tbe ground quite dead, and
a third ia laid upon one Bide of the bazaar,
covered with a dirty pi?ce o? cotton. A naked
woman lies In the agony of death, surrounded
by a crowd of beings almost as badly off as
herself. The next form is that of a woman,
who scrapes from the ground a handful; of
melon seed and filth, which she divides be?
tween her two children. This ls one morn?
ing's ride. There 1B no help for any of them,
though the Shah has, as Mr. Murray testifies,
bucket8ihl of jewels In. the private treasury,
and the famine cannot end until July. "
-The value of vaccination as a preventive
of smallpox, though questioned by many,
seems attested by statistics. When small pox
waa raging as an epidemic ia London in 1863,
observations were made by the physicians
upon fifty thousand children belonging to
national and parochial schools, workhouses,
"Ac Some of the children had never been
'vaccinated; the great majority bad, in various
wajs and degrees. Of every one thousand
children without any marks of vaccination,
nine hundred and sixty had marks of small
11 ox; while of every one thousand children
who had evidence of vaccination, only one
hundred and seventy-eight had any trace of |
the disease. In regard to the amount of vac?
cination, it was found that, or children having
ionr or more cicatrices, only 0.62 per ihousuud
were scarred with small-pox. So the best
vaccination proved thirty-fold more protective
than the worst, and the worst was twenty
seven times better than none at all. The
study of fifteen thousand cases of small-pox
at the London hospital shows that the unvac
cinated died at the rate of thirty-seven per
oent., and the vaccinated at the rate of only
six and a half per cent.; the mortality among
those with four scars being only 0.5!?, while
that among those with only a Bingle scar was
7.37. A comparison of the statistics Indicates
that a well vaccinated parson runs only one
seventeenth the risk which ls taken by those
who refuse to avail themselves of vaccina?
Profit anti Los-.
The St. Louis BqmbUcan, the ablest ad?
vocate of what i3 known as the passive
policy, sums up the political balance sheet
at the close of tho year, for the purpose of |
ascertaining what are the most important
facts and figures to be carried forward as
the profit and loss to the Democracy for^
California and New * York, having forty
electoral votes, have been lost, and New
Hampshire and Texas have been gained,
which States reduce the Democratic net loss
to twenty-eight electors. The disastrous re?
sult in New York is ascribed exclusively to
the shameful disclosures in reference to the
Tammany thieves, and those best informed
are confident that the Empir? State needs
but the opportunity to give overwhelming
evidence of the tact that its repudiation ol
Grant, Murphy and Conkling is as hearty
and sincere as its condemnation of Tweed,
Connolly and their colleagues in crime.
The number of States in the present pos?
session of the opponents of the national ad?
ministration is Bixteen ; and they rank re?
spectively, as follows, with reference to their
population and consequent political influ?
ence, according to the bill which has recent?
ly passed the House providing for an ap?
portionment of representatives to continue
until the results of the cen ens ;of 1860 are
announced; and which increases the number
of members from 243 to 283* an increase of
forty members, of which the Western States
gain twenty-two, the Southern States thir?
teen, the Middle States five, and New Eng?
land loses and the Pacific coast gains o J e

. The entire number of electoral votes un
ler the new apportionment is three hundred
md fifty-seven, which necessitates the pos-.
leesion of St least one hundred anofseventy
line to the Democracy to enable them to
>lace their candidate ia the White House;
hat ls to say, the Democrats must make a
slear.gain of forty-three electoral votes, in
iddition to retaining all they now bold, to
tarry the Presidential ?lection of 18721 And
he St Louis Bepublican does not believe
bat this can be done unless the Missouri
>olicy meets with approval It regards the
told of the Democracy upon Indiana, New
Tersey, New Hampshire, Oregon and Nevada
is. of the most precarious description. They
lave thirty-three electoral votes, which ore
ilasBed as "doubtful'' if passivism be re.
Altogether the St. LoniB Republican thinks
bat the cb&nces pf Democratic success are.
niserably small if its advice is not heeded.
The City Debt.
We have always held the opinion that a
rigorous and practical City Council would be
ible to devise means of arranging the mu
licipal debt in a manner which would do no
vrong to either bondholder or .taxpayer;
ind we have confidence that the present ad
nioistration, by mutual agreement, will pat
he debt in a manageable and endurable
ihape. Until, however, the financial plans
>f the City Council are made known, we
leem it proper to confine onr own action to
.he publication and explanation of whatever
natured views and opinions may be submit?
ed to ns upon the subject With this pur?
pose we have printed the letters of a corres?
pondent, writing under the signature of Tax?
payers, whose desire is to induce the City
Council to forbear any further legislation in.
'elation to the debt until the courts have de
sided whether it is a binding obligation.
The point is also made that, if the debt be
ralid, it can be enforced against the corpo?
rators only by process of execution.
IQ connection with this question, we take
eave to remind our readers that proceedings
lave been instituted to test at leaBt the
power of Council to enforce the municipal
lebt by taxation. The action to that end
was taken, more than a year ago, under au?
thority of a meeting of citizens held in the
Market Hall. A motion for a temporary
injunction was made before Justice Willard
at Columbia, in the absence of any judge at
that time in this circuit, which motion was
refused, on the ground, as we are informed,
that there was no canse Bhown for the tem?
porary injunction-the parties having appa?
rently acquiesced in the taxation of the debt
Tor many years, and evidence of urgency not
being given. Justice Willard did not under?
take to prejudge the issue. The cause was
remitted for trial by the Circuit Court of this
County. No opportunity for trial has since
occurred, from the pressure of criminal and
pre-existing civil causes on the docket, and
the parties, therefore, have but the prospect
of a trial at the next ensuing term of court.
The Cotton Tax-Important Notice.
The Columbia Phoenix learns from a com?
munication from Washington, addressed to
John T. Sloan, Esq., that "the Secretary of |
'the Treasury has at lost modified his two
'year order, and extended the time to June
'30, 1872. All cotton, tare and other claims
'that were shelved by that order will be act
'ed on and paid, if properly proved."
