years as a military'coadjutor of Mazzini, Kos?
suth, and other European. Republicans, and
afterward aa a filibuster leader la Cuba and
Central America, and as the author of several
warks, 'Is engaged on a History of Filibus?
-It-was proposed ? few days ago, In New
York, that, a statue of Horace Greeley be pur?
chased and placed lui Printing House Square,
similar to the one recently erected In hooor of
Benjamin Franklin on that spot. The sub?
scriptions have already reached $11,000, but
$30,000 is wanted.'
-Mario, the lamons tenor, now nearly sixty
years old, was married lately in London at
the Catholic Church, lu Marylebone, to Lady
Harriet Beaufort, a member of an aristocratic
English family. The new. Marchioness of Can?
dia is .only twenty-two, years old. Marlo will
take' up. his residence in Paris. His two
daughters-who might be taken for their step
mother's sisters-will reside wllh him.
-Mr. Greeley says he- don't want a statue
while he lives, and adds, "after he 1B dead
an eye nt which he does net care to hasten, I
even for the-sake of ? a statue-if any should
see fit to pile granite or marble above his dust, I
he can make no objection; but, so long as he
shall remain tn the flesh, he ls content with I
the stones thrown at him promiscuously, and
would rather not have1 any of them ~pnsoiI
dated into a Btatue."
-The British Government has form illy an
nouB.ced the occupation of the South African
diamond fields on the 17th of last November.
There ls now no doubt of this action by the
British authorities-hitherto rumored only. I
The change la said to have been highly- oo- I
ceptable to the colonists among the diamond
seekers, but the Dutch of the Transvaal Be
public indignantly protested against this ad- j
dttloaal evidence of British greed and disre?
gard of the rights of other?. I
_?.t an alleged interview, recently held at
Chisel hurst, between the ex-Emperor Nitpo
leon.and a "considerable personage," a strong.!
supporter of the Empire, Louis Napoleon, af- I
terming that If the French people would ac?
cept the Due d'Aumale as Pre.-ldent he would
give him his support, as he himself did not
hope for a restoration, is reported to have
uttered these remarkable words: "But re
member well what I am about to say to you. I
If within abc.months the Due d'Aumale be not
President of the Republic, and li he should '
sot re-establish the regime of 1852, France
will come to fetch me, and-she will And me."
If thia means anything, it means that Napo?
leon hopes to disgust France with Thiers,
whom ne cordially hates, and in bringing on a
condition of chaos, to avail himself of the con?
sequent confusion of public affairs to step In
and re-establish himself.
-The great powder explosion which took
plaee on the 18th ult., at the Greenwich
marshes, near London, occurred in a cartridge j
factory where tuv-re were several hundred I
cabes of ball cartridges. While the foreman
and about thirty young women, from sixteen
to twenty years of age, were employed in
"breaking up. the cartridges, without a mo?
ment's warciug a terrific explosion occurred,
with a tremendous crash that was beard for
several miles round'. The. unfortunate girls,
many of whom were Instantly In flames, rush- I
ed screaming from the building. The less in?
jured ran home across the marshes and tidal
ditches; while others, mow seriously scorch- j
ed, threw themselves, or were thrown, down
and rolled in the mud, In order to extinguish
the flames. The roof of the building was I
blown away by the first concussion, and a por-1
tton of the walh>, which measured sixty-nine I
feet in one direction by twenty in another, was I
-A peculiarity hos been discovered In the I
Immense raft which obstructs the Bed River
for many miles. Unlike most raits it moves
up loe river Instead of down, the motion being
at tte rate of about two miles ia a year. The
explanation of this retrograde movement is
that the logs of the lower end of the raft are
continually broken away and carried off by
the floods and flreshets, while the other end
ls constantly receiving additions. Thus the j
raff, always failing away at one end and grow- j
lpg at the other, gradually moves up the river,
and lt is calculated that lt has moved since its
forming about four hundred miles. In 1833,
when theran was one hundred and twenty*
four miles long, the work of removing it was
commenced by the government, but af er j
working at it for twenty-two years the at?
tempt was abandoned as Impracticable, and j
was confined to opening some of thc lateral
Channels, BO as to facilitate navigation.
-The Une of defence to be adopted for
Stokes, who killed James Fisk, Jr., seems to
be that the fatal shot was Inflicted not by
Stokes, but by Fisk himself in an endeavor to
draw his pletol from his pocket upon meeting
with Stokes on the stairway oftbe Grand Cen?
tral Hotel. In support of this proposition, it j
is alleged by Stokes's counsel that lt Is clear
that two pistols were used, from the fict that
two bullets of different size were found-one
In the body of Fisk, and the other on the floor.
One of these bullets flited the pistol found
under the sofa in the parlor, and the other did
not. This case ls strengthened by a remark
alleged to have been made by Fisk when be
was first visited by the coroner while lying
wounded io ;the hotel. To a quest on J
from the official, >w|fe you armed ?" Fisk j
ia repotted to hare replied, "Never mind
A strong point la favor or the d<
ment cf this theory of defence ia that
outside clothing WUH taken In charge by
people present at the time of the hon
and that no evidence is as yet ? forib.com
show whether there was any pistol 1
pocket or not. All these facts will, hov
be brought out oa the trial. Stokes lu
advantage of the services of one of the
successful and powerlul advocates of the
York bar-Mr. John Graham, a keen,
matic and uncompromising lawyer, \
professional motto seems to be to clet
clients at all hazards if possible. The
will be Interesting when -brought to i
trial, and some strange developments m
anticipated. In the meantime, Stokes
ports himself la th most unconcerned
drying in hi3 prison in the attire of a Bi
way exquisite, and making constant den
for all those luxuries which, in a life of
dom, he was in the habit of enjoying.
The Proposed Leane of the Soul ll C
lina Railroad to the Central Rall
Of Georgia-Threatened Rain to
People, a nd the State.
If the proposed lease of the South
olina Railroad be as unwise for the si
holders as we have stated; if that li
ander the delusive promise of a di vic
will end, in the course of a few years, ii
destruction of. the stock itself, what ca
said to thoee who are interested in the
fare of Charleston and South Caro
which will adequately arouse them to
dangers with which they are threatet
There is not a man living in this city, di
business here, having bis earnings inve
here-whether in bouses or in secaril
public or private-who can fail to see
disastrous to bim and his interests mu^t
the accomplishment of this measure. W

developing increase of the trade of the c
When, daring tbat long period, bave tl
hopes been presented under circumstai
which so certainly foretold the realiza
of them as at this present moment? Witta

Greenville Railroad, not only was a g
danger averted; but a great benefit seem
With a like benefit obtained In tbe contre
the Macon and Augusta Road, another d
ger was averted, and another advantage
cured. With the announcement that tb
i objects had been accomplished, relief ca
to the hearts of ail whose affections i
interests were involved in the pr?serv?t
of the material interests of this State t
city. Were these acquisitions, these n
and assured sources of future prosper!
uncared for by those whose interests w
antagonistic to. those of this people ? 1
answer is told well .enough in the iliy-ci
coaled disappointment of those who ht
been working against us, and who, hapr.
too late, tried every move their i n ge nu
could suggest to break np the arrangemei
which had been made, and take from us I
advantages which had been secured. Wt
are these advantages ? The securely reslor
trade of the State and the city, and with
the securely restored prosperity of Ahe c
and State. Tet strange, passing strange,
it that there are persons who calculate
confidently on the blindness, the avarice,
the necessities of our pooplo aa to euppc
that this offer of a dividend will induce t
stockholders to turn over to them that co
trol of the South Carolina Railroad whl<
is but, in plain terms, the control of bo
Charleston and Sooth Cu olina.
Only a few days ago ve heard a person
great intelligence, a stranger sojourn in
here, having no interest in the matter, d
clare, that, with its present railroad co;
nections, in less than five years, the City <
Charleston would enjoy greater commercU
prosperity than it had ever known; but if
lease should be made of the South Carolin
Railroad to the Central Railroad of Georgi
for twenty years, AT THE END OF THAT TIM
ONE . WOULD LOOK AT THE PLACE WHER
CHARLESTON HAD BEEN I And we bellev
there is a mourn.ul truth in tho prophecy.
Not more Used and inseparable are lb
relations of cause and effect than are all tb
consequences anticipated from this proposi
tion to surrender to our rivaLs the means '.
oar support. Can any one who is sane te
lleve that the proposal is prompted by a de
sire for onr good? or believe thataoyo.be
motive prompts the offer than the desi.e U
secure business for Savannah ? And if witl
all the disadvantages under which l itheru
we have labared, we have been r.ole, yea:
after year, to lessen the advantages whic!
circumstances at the close of the war gav?
tb Savannah, and, in the course of the las
twelve months, show a more decided sue
cess in the contest than ut any prevloui
time, does tbe offer to lease the Soutt
Carolina Railroad fail to show that Savan
nah cannot continue the contest, and thai
her chance for success consists, in inducing
the people of Charleston no loDger to strug?
gle with her ? If ever before, in all time,
the parallel can be found, to the one side,
that, with so much of calculation, attempts
to absorb a rival hastening to complete suc?
cess; or to the ether, that, it is supposed,
will be so weak as to listen to such proposi?
tions, we confess ourselves unable to dis?
What is there now which does not render
it probable that our receipts of colton will
go on increasing until they will in a short
time exceed that of Savannah ?
What is there now which does not make
it impossible, if the South Carolina Railroad
is under the control of the Central Railroad,
for the people of Charleston to receive as
much cotton as they now receive ?
What is there now which does not render
it probable that the wholesale business of
Charleston, with the advantages recently
secured, will not be, in a short time, as ex?
tensive and lucrative os its warmest friends
would wish ?
What makes it possible that this trade can
survive at all with the control of it in the
hands of a large corporation intensely en?
gaged in the development of a rival city
in which every advantage to it i?3 a loss to
thia city ?
What make3 it probable that the retail
business of this city, under such circum?
stances, can improve ?
What makes it otherwise than impossible
that us fate should be other than would cor?
respond with the prostration which would
mark every entorprise, every business, every
interest whatsoever thut ha3 its place here ?
It is idle to say lhat our apprehensions are
extravagant; that no Buch consequences will
result. Can the City of Charleston improve,
can it maintain itself, il the South Carolina
Railroad is controlled by any persons whose
interests are adverse to its prosperity ? They
who believe that it caa, are they who be?
lieve tbat the City of Charleston can main?
tain itself without railroad communications
which connect it with the interic4P and
ocean communications which connect it
with other ports. There can be no argu?
ment with such us believe that commercial
prosperity can come from a position of com?
We know that there are some who believe
that all these disastrous circumstances will
be amply provided for in the proposed lease,
and safeguards secured against them. But
will such as so believe take the trouble to
ask themselves if they would undertake, if
they had the power, to say what should be
these safeguards on which they rely, and
next whether they will be accepted and en?
forced ? It would be as imprudent for the
one to undertake to secure protection in
such a case as it would be folly to suppose
that it would be afforded. The best, the only
protection is in having the ownership and the
control of the railroad interests of the State
in the hands of the people of the State.
Where everything connected with the mate?
rial welfare of the people of the State now
depends in so great a degree upon the rail?
roads in the State, let our people be wise and
keep in their own hands the control of these |
railroads. _ _
A Good Day's Work.
The Chamber of Commerce, at its meet?
ing yesterday, took action upon the impor?
tant matter of the condition of the Harbor
and Bar, and, also, appointed a committee
to consider the best means of securing a
snpply of X~?3h water to the city. As the
improvement of the Harbor is necessary for
the accommodation of our growing com?
merce, so is the establishment of a system
of water-works indispensable to the cleanli?
ness, the health and the security of Charles?
ton. The Chamber of Commerce did a good
day's work. _ _ _
WE beg to! direct the attention .of our
readers to the sketch of the history and ob?
jects of the new Radical Eu-Elux organiza?
tion, printed in to-day's NEWS.
A new club in New York City-the Stand?
ard, founded four years and a half ago by a
company of Germans-admits ladles to IIB
privileges, and so marks a new departure.
The members see no good reason why women
should be excluded irom social enjoyment
and harmless recreation. Therefore we read
of a ladles' parlor In the new club-house,
frescoed In light blue, and furnished sumptu?
ously In blue satin, with luxurious hangings
and adornments. It le not surprising to bear
that the club-women, who have been Invited
to Join the clhb-men of their households, re?
gard the institution of the club with more
favor than formerly. It ls to be presumed
that clubs become refined, like every other
circle in society, by the presence of the gen?
LIFE-How Inconsistent ls human nature? Men
carry revolvers to protect themaaiveg against ruf?
fians in w Il-pollshed cities, where the precaution
ls unnecessary, often neglect to fortify their sys?
tems against disease In the most unhealthy sea?
sons. Thonsands or dyspeptics and other Invalids
are now languishing In sick rooms, or feebly and
listlessly moving throngh our streets, who owe
their forlorn condition solely to a want of com?
mon prudence. Far more inimical than the roughs
and rowdies, against whose possible attacks ihe
timid arm tbemielve?, are the morbid elements
that pervade the atmosphere at this time of the
year, and yet, although lt ls an undented ana un?
deniable fact that HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS afford amore perfect protection against
these causes of disease than any weapon ot offence
can afford against lawless violence, the reckless
and inconsiderate continue to brave the danger
with a positive safeguard within their reach.
Every day, however, the number of these mar?
tyrs to their own want of forecast diminishes.
Each succeeding season demonstrates more clear?
ly the Inestimable value of the Bitters, both as an
antidote for the causes of disease and a specific
Tor its consequences. The miasma which gene?
rates periodic disorders, rhumatlsm, liver com?
plaint. Irregularity or the bowels and other physi?
cal disturbances, prod aces no effect whatever
upon systems toned, strengthened and regulated
by this powerful vegetable medicine, and dyspep?
sia, nervous debility, constipation, Intermittent
and remittent fevers, biliousness, and la fact
nearly all the maladies which the Bitters, If taken
in time, would prevent, are cured by the perse?
vering uss of the great remedy.
The genuine Bitters sold In bottles only, and
never by the barre), keg or gallon, as ls represent?
ed by some unprincipled dealers.
