even the seclusion of his Pomeranian manor

where the trophies of the war, In the shape of
Louis Quatorze mantel-clock?, Sevres table?

occupante in new luxury, can keep out the In?
sinuating correspondent. The European Jour?
nalist has even improved on his American ex?
ample, and Oking the Prussian Chancellor at
a disadvantage has made bim talk in the
roundest periods about matters on which he
usually keeps his mouth close sealed; Most
.Interesting to us ls the Prince's opinion of the
United States, a nation whose principles he
fails to adopt for bis own country, but for

Bismarck is kind enough to say that he always
reads a great deal about the United States,
and that our history ls a very atlractlre kale
dtoscope. It ls with a sort of incredulous
wonder that he speaks of the liberty of speech
and of the press here, which Inevitably re?
sults in bringing public oplolon to the top.
-The New York Savings' Banks appear to
have caught the Infeotfon of fraud which 1B
spreading so rapidly from government de
par tn. o nts through every line of private busi?
ness. The developments in the case of the
Bowling Green Savings Bank, In which the
deposits seem to have gone directly Into the
pockets of the officers, fictitious notes being
substituted to represent the money stolen,
and ot the Market Savings Bank, where the
secretary bas spent the money confided to his
keeping In stock and other gambling, are suf?
ficient to startle the community, and amply
Justify the excitement in New York. For lt is
not the wealthy or the speculative class which
such catastrophes affect. A score of failures
in Wall street" or In the Stock Exchange
would fail to cause such evil a 3 the plunder?
ing of one savings bank. These institutions
are chartered on a semi-benevolent basis, as
the means of affording secure investment for
the earnings of provident Industry; and a fail?
ure to carry ont this design, even through
carelessness, is a crime beyond that o? ordi?
nary peculations. The m.in who, likeConk
Un, can usc the hard-earned savings of poor
men, and the ecant legacies oi widows and
orphans for reckless speculation, is a villain
whose crime cannot well be estimated.
-A Frenchman has gone into the "battle
ot Dorking" business. Assuming the part of an
old soldier of the landwher, he tells his children
what happened alter the overthrow ofEnglnnd
at Dorking. Denmark was annexed to Ger?
many, Bismarck died, the annexation fever be?
came very high, and at last the Emperor de?
cided war against Sweden. Russia and France
remonstrated and declared war against Ger?
many. The Emperor had been counting on
an alliance with Austria and Italy, but the !
latter was unprepared, and Austria had all she
could do to put down an Insurrection in Hun?
gary. There was treason In the German army.
The pro^p^ai contingents and those of the
annexed kingdoms mutinied. The people of j
Alsace and Lorraine rose and slew the garri?
sons of Strasbourg and Metz. A French army
took Bavaria and another went around by the
way of Hanover. Everywhere the people re?
ceived the invaders with open arms. At last
the "battle of Berlin" was fought, and Ger?
many was conquered. Russia was willing
enough to grant terms, but France Insisted on
entering Berlin and did so. Europe was re?
constructed on the basis of 1815, with one or
two changes. Italy was only so far dismem?
bered as to be compelled to restore the States
of the Church to the Holy Father. England
was punished for her refusal to assist France
in 1870 by the loss ot all her colonies every?
where. Prussia had to pay back the five mil?
liards to France, and a very heavy Indemnity
to Russia In addition. Thus everything termi?
nated to the satisfaction of France. All this is
supposed to have happened in the year 1875.
hartog the past four years the trade and
commerce of the City of Charleston have
steadily improved. There bas been no as?
tonishing stride forward in any one season.
This city bas not been able to scale at a
mighty leap the heights where rest the sub?
stantial rewards of mercantile supremacy.
Our progress has been inch by inch, and
foot by Toot. Bat what ground wegala we i
firmly hold. There is no slipping back.
Charlestoij, as surely as summer Hows
spriog, moves unswervingly and irresistibly
onward. The railroads, of which Charles?
ton is the terminal point, draw, month by
month, a heavier tribute from the West and
South, and, with equal zeal, minister, as far
as they may, to the wants of tho South Caro?
lina public. A fleet of swift steamships,
plying to the ports of the Nortb, bear the
fleecy wealth of the Cotton States and the I
precious products of the Southern forests to
their distant markets, returning heavily
ladea with the riches of the Old World and
the New. The cultivation of fruits and
early vegetables, pursued ia the face of
many cfcficulties, is an established branch of
the trade of the city. Already the work of
mining and manipulating the pbosphatic
deposits of the Sooth Caroliaa basia as?
sumes gigantic proportions, employing
squadrons of stout vessels to bear the quick?
ening freight to the sterile fields of the
Nortb, and to the crowded plaias of Europe.
Sulphuric acid factories, among the largest
ia the world, sad companies for manufac?
turing commercial fertilizers, complete in
every mechonical detail, give activity to
capital aad occupation to tbe laborer, while
they spread the name of Charleston the
whole conatry over. The provisioa trade
grows io importance evory seasoo; the job?
bing trade ls recovering its hold upon our
neighboring States; the cotton business of
the port L road ens aad deepens with un flag?
ging regularity; the receipts of naval stores,
of rice, of lumber, give even the chronic
grumbler no cause for complaint. A Con?
servative city government, from which much
is expected, hos taken the place of the waste?
ful and ignorant Council ot 1868-71. The |
city is honestly meeting her engagements;
the people are hopeful and confident. And
yet, from Maine to the Pacific, Charleston is
spoken of as a fallen city, as one which
lags io the race, ns a worn-out, brokeo-dowo
community which has, ia the present, noth?
ing bright, and, in the future, no other cer
taiaty than decay and commercial deaib.
Norfolk and "Wilmington and Savannah
have their prophets who chaut their praises,
and cordially do we wish them Godspeed :
Yet Charleston, which has a larger commerce
than any city on the South Atlantic coast,is,
according lo outside opinion, on tbe verge of |
dissolution. The reason of this is plain.
Charleston, although steadily improving in
actual commercial prosperity, is, in appear
auce, as war-worn to-day os when tho pillar
of tire by night and the pillar of smoke by
day gave the North the sigo of victory,
aod the South the signal of defeat. Atlanta
and Bichmond are budded ap; Savannah
and Wilmington and Norfolk have hastened
to smoot.be the wrinkles from their front.
But in the very heart of Charles to J, thriving
os the city is, the raak weeds flourish aad
the green waters reek as they did tea years
aga The travellers on pleasure and on
commerce beat, the newspaper-men who
think they see more io a day than oar owa
people learn in a life-time, will not believe
that Charleston is a progressive city while
the burnt district staods desolate and bare,
void of all bat the faintest show cf restora?
tion aad improvemen t.
It may be said, we know, that the barat
district would have been rebuilt long ago
U lhere were a suQJcient demand for
hoase-room to mako building operations
profitable. This, ia a measure, is begging
the whole question. The difficulty bas been
to obtain the necessary capital at a reason?
able rate of interest ; for, by reason of the
condition of the city credit, the advances
which might be had from the city ander the
Fire Loan Act could not be turaed to profit?
able account. There is a change ia the
situation. The present Council are sedulous?
ly strengthening the public credit, and, re?
cognizing tbe importance, from every as?
pect, of building ap tbe city, they are taking
measures to guard the borrower from the
city against any serious loss. Another in?
ducement is desired to be offered, viz: To
exempt from taxatiou for five years all build?
ings put up in the burnt district. Al pres?
ent, the vacant lots returo a beggarly sum
to the public treasury, and if, by foregoing
all lacrease of taxes for a short period, the
city caa couvert a bleak waste ioto a busy
hive of iudastry, the whole cummunity
must bo the gainers. Apart from the em?
ployment given to mechaoics and laborers,
and the streugtheoiug of every branch of
trade, the building up or the burnt district
would iucrease our population, augment tbe
volume or our active capital, and place
Charle8tou in her true positioo before the
world. The appearauce of prosperity, and
the possession of prosperity, acting togeth?
er, aad reacliog upoq each other, would, in
a few years, cause Charlestoa to grow with
the rapidity of the proverbial cities or the
When the City Council proposed the ex
emptioo from taxation already mentioned,
we pointed out that this might most surely
be accomplished by allowing a draw-back
equal to the difference between the present
tax upon lots in the burnt district and the tax
upon the sam?'lots wheo budded upon. Ia
this geaeral shapp, Mr. Hurley bas intro?
duced a bill in the House or Representatives
??to encourage the rebuilding o? the waste
"places in the ?ity or Charleston, to make
?employment for the mechanics and labor?
ing people, and for other purposes." Thia
bill authorizes the grant of a draw-back for
a term of five years of all State, county and
city taxes upon improvements or buildings
which may be made upon any waste place
or burnt premises in this city. It is a wise
and proper bill; one which Bhould posB
without opposition. Charleston pays no un?
important part of the State taxes, and what
is asked for-her at this time, without im?
poverishing the State, may make her rich
indeed. The relation between Ihe seaboard
and the interior is fixed and indissoluble.
Charleston cannot prosper without giving of ]
her prosperity to the people of the entire
State. We hope, then, that Mr. Hurley's
bill will be called up at au early day, and
speedily become a law. It is a measure of
the gravest moment to every man who has
at heart the welfare of tba city. With
houses springing up in every part of the
burnt district, with Meelon g street, Broad
street and lower King street rebuilt, Charles?
ton would present an appearance of bustle
and activity which would give outsiders that
faith in ber magniOcent destiny which is
now confined to her own hardworking
people. . . _ _
Tile People'* Money-What shall
Dune >vit h lt ?
The tax-levy of last year was estimated
to produce sufficient to pay the current ex?
penses of the State, and redeem tho float?
ing debt. Mouey has been pouring irjto
the Treasury at an unprecedented rate; yet
the January interest on the public debt re?
mains in arrear, and no progress is made ia
liquidating the loans which cost so terrible
a sum for interest and commissions.
As the Comptroller-General confesses his
inability to say what the amount of the
public debt is, lhere would, in even the offi?
ciai mind, be Borne reason for suspending
the payment of interest; but we carrt see
that the funds in the Treasury could be em?
ployed to better purpose than in releasing,
with a view to their instant cancelment, the
State bonds hypothecated in New York as
a security for money lent to the State. Tho
question of the legality or illegality of the
hypothecated boods does not a tl oct the
liability of the State for the money which its
officials borrowed, and a payment of this
floating debt would save the people heavy
charges for interest, besides releasing three J
dollars in bonds for every dollar of debt so
paid off. This, to our mind, is a better way
of reducing the debt than that of allowing
the hypothecated bonds to be sold out at
twenty-five or thirty cents upon the dollar,
with the faint hope of being able, one of
these days, to shake off tbe liability alto?
gether. Half a million in money paid out
now would reduce the State debt one and a
half millions. But possibly the South Caro?
lina Radicals are BO strong that they had
rather face the opposition this summer wiih
a debt of $16,000,000 than with one of less
Tinline Itldge .Tot?.
The new Blue Ridge Bill, which will be
found in our Columbia correspondence, is
even more infamous in character than tbe
telegraphic sum mary of its provisions led us
to believe. As every oue knows, the Blue
Ridge Bailroad Company is head over ears
in debt, and its only marketable assets are
four million dollars of the bonds of the com?
pany guaranteed by the State, which may
be worth five cents on the dollar. Yet the
new Blue Bidge Bill proposes (1) that the
State shall pay all tbe debts of the company,
upon delivery to the State of guaranteed
bonds equal in amount to the debts presented
for payment; (2) that the debts of the com?
pany may be prov'ded for by a sale of any ?
bonds of the State to any amount; (3) that
the debts of the company may be exchanged
for State bonds at market rates; (4) that an
indefinite amount of State bonds may be
issued and sold to pay the debts of the com?
pany; (5) that the worthless guaranteed
bonds may be converted or funded, nuder
any conversion act, into direct bonds of the
Slate. We undertake to Bay that a greater
swindle was never submitted to the South
Carolina Legislature. Before it, the Green?
ville Bill and the Port Royal Bill would hide
their heads, in shame to be so outdone.

Cotton King Again.
Reviewing the year 1871, the Manchester
(Eng.) Examiner stales that the cotton dis?
tricts have had a return of those busy limes
which certain prophets told us some years ago
had gone forever. The cotton manufacture,
so far from having disappeared an one of the
staple industries, bas more capital embarked
in lt at this moment, and finds employment
for a larger number of work people, than at
any former period.
