-A curious business is said to have sprung

sages at ten shillings a word, more or less.
The address will generahy use from six to ten
words, and frequently messages need consist
of only two or three words if a cypher has
been agreed upon. The "message packers,"
as they are called, have their own cypher, and
send-all messages to their own agents In Cal?
cutta. In a twenty word message they may
thus Bend, in some coses, as many as ten Bepa?
rate messages, receiving from their custom?
ers ten pounds, and making a profit of five
pounds ten shillings. Their customers, en the
other hand, have paid altogether but ten
pounds for what, under ordinary circum?
stances, would have cost them foriy-oue
pounds. The telegraph company pockets all

appointed by the monarchies to Bettie the ques- J
Hons between the republic and the monarchy.
I say that neither nation will dare, in the face of |
the civilized world, to destroy that compact
which ls solemnly made before God and man,
and to leave those Irritating difficulties open
for further altercation in the future. [Ap?
plause.] No, no. If we were not to receive
one dollar as the result of that arbitration, I
would stand before my countrymen and say,
Settle this question, whether we receive
nothing or whether our treasury becomes
bankrupt, rather than recede a hair's breadth

What Next ?
There is a State and county tax of sev?
enteen and a half mills to begin with. To
this most be added the special annual tax of j
three mills, for the redemption of the bills j
receivable to be issued to the Blue Ridge
Railroad Company. The entire tax of 20?
mills for 1872, upon property assessed for
taxation at $160,000,000, amounts to $3,
280,000. And this is exclusive of the license
and jjtop acts, which are expected to add
largely^) the public revenue. "We suppose
that we are not very far from the mark when
we say that at least three and three quarter
millions of money are expected to be wrung j
from the taxpayers during the fiscal year.
Comptroller Neagle's estimate of the ex?
penditures of the. year is $2,468,000; in?
cluding $650,000 for ordinary expenses,
$400,000 for*legialative expenses^ $300,000
for printing, $718,000 for interest, and $400,
000, for deficiencies. To this must be added
the county expenditures, $400,000; the float?
ing debt, $1,000,000, and the annual quota
for redemption of the Blue Ridge bills,
$480,000, makiag a grand total of $4,348,- j
The estimates, therefore, of the present
year are nearly ten times the average an?
nual tax before the war, and yet, in the past
year, the State debt has been increased </rom
$9,000,000 to S16.000.000.
This is a deplorable condition of things,
and we do not learn now for toe first time
that neither the arguments nor the prayers j
of the taxpaying minority will be heeded by
the tax-levying majority. Tbe Legislature,
DD the point of dissolution, cares not a jot
Tor the welfare of the State. Its only aim is j
to raise money enough to pay its own mo?
uing expenses, and to enable the State offi?
cials to conceal ? the violations of law which
promised to lead some of their number into
the penitent ian-.
And where is tbe remedy ? The general
elections take place this fall; the third gene?
ral elections under the new system of gov?
ernment. In 1868, the Democracy were
only nominally.in the field, and the Legisla?
ture was miserably bad. Io 187?? an attempt
was made to elect Reformers, without regard
to party, and the Legislature was worse.
The General Assembly of 1868 was intelli?
gent and spotless in comparison with that of |
1870. And, impossible though it may seem,
we may fear that the adoption by the minor?
ity this fail of the tactics of 1868 or 1870
will give the State next winter a Legislature
and an official Ring even more venal and
ignorant than those now in power.
The efficiency.of the German military ad?
ministration ls shown in the fact that in the
space of ten months the re-establlshmenutf
the German army has been completed in all
essential points. Uniforms, boot s and helmets
have been renewed; and the soldiers' knap?
sacks, as well as bells and saddles, have been
repaired. Some 6000 transport wagon?, that at
the close of the war were mere wrecks, have
been replaced with vehicles flt for immediate
service, and the artillery has undergone a ;
complete renovation. The horses which re?
turned from France were in excellent condi?
tion; those killed In battle were replaced ten?
fold by those captured from the French. When I
the army was demobilized great numbers of j
horses were sold, briDging higher prices than
were originally paid for them by the govern?
ment. The Prussian newspapers are exceed?
ingly tiappy over this very satisfactory condl-1
tlon of military affairs.
THE LIFE ANDTIMES OF TUE REV. JOHN WES?
LEY, M. A.. FOUNDER OF THE METHODISTS.
By Rev. L Tye rm an, author of "The Life and
Times of Rev. S. Wesley, M. A., Father of |
the Revs. J. and C. Wesley." In, three
vols. Vol. 1. New York: Harper & Broth?
ers, 1872. Charleston: Holtness Book?
John Wesley's name belongs to history. He
is one of the prominent figures amongst the
great men of the Eighteenth Century. He
Blands the recognized leader of one of the
tr featest religious revolutions of modern times,
and his principles and influence are embodied
In an organization already nearly world-wide.
With respect to this influent ?arl Stanhope
has said, truly and forcibly, "With Jess immedi?
ate importance than war or political changes,
lt endures long after not only the result but
the memory ot these has passed away; and
thousands who never heard of Fontenoy or
Walpole continue to hold the precepts and
venerate the name of John Wesley." This
eminent man was by native endowment, by
careful culture, by entire consecration of his
powers to public usefulness, by Immeasurable
activity extended through an extraordinary
period of service, a conspirions mark* for ob?
servation during his lifetime-at first the ob?
ject of persecution and obloquy, at last of un?
bounded admiration to the men of the last
century. During the present century six
biographers-emong them Robert Southey,
Richard Watson and Isaac Taylor-have given
the world a view of his character and labors.
We have now before us, as a fresh contribu?
tion, the first volume of an American edition
of au elaborate work, published in London, by
Rev. L. Tyerman, a Wesleyan minister. This
work is in three volumes, and bas attracted
much attention in England. The American
reprint is a very handsome voluH?of five
hundred and sixty-four pages. Mr. Tyerman
has been gathering materials for this publica?
tion during seventeen years. He has ran?
sacked magazines, newspaper.", pamphlets,
tracts and old letters, published and unpub?
lished, and has presented whatever of his
mass of new materials was likely to be of gen
eral interest, or would aid ia exhibiting a true
portraiture of Wesley's character and life?
work. ! The first volume covers Just 'half of
Wesley's life, from 1703 to 1747. In the lucid
style and clear arrangement of Mr. Tyerman
the reader will follow, with sustained and in?
creasing interest, the details of the early and
university life of Wesley, his mission to Geor-.,
gia, his visit to Hernhut, his fle?d-preacblog,
with its wonderful results, the strange and
stirring incidents that characterized his early
career; and in connection, brief but pictur?
esque sketches of contemporary men ol emi?
nence, and important public affairs. Alto?
gether it ls one of the most readable books we
have lately had in hand.
BALLADS OF GOOD DEEDS AND OTHER VERSES
By Henry Abbey. New York : D. Appleton
& Co. 1872. Charleston: Holmes's Book
These ballads first appeared in Appleton's j
Journal, the Galaxy, Harper's Weekly and
other periodicals, and may have been more
attractive when taken singly than they are
when brought together. The versification ls,
with some exceptions, fairly smooth, abd each
ballad has a moral application ; but the thought
is commonplace, and the best passages are
weak imitations of familiar lines In modern
poetry. Doubtless the plagiarism is uninten?
tional, but lt is not, for that reason, the lees
evident. If. we could find a scintilla ol the
divine fire in Mr. Abbey's verse, we might en?
courage him to try again. As he is only dull
and respectable, we advise him to slick to

Self Help, ?c. New York : Harper & Bros.
1872. Charleston : Holmes's Book House.
In this book Mr. Smiles treats of the influ?
ence of character, home power,companlonshlp.
example, work, courage, self-control, 'duty,
truthfulness, temper, manner* companionship
of books, companionship in marriage, and the
discipline of experience. It ls full of thought?

and example. The influence of such a work
should be both wholesome and lasting, and it j
ls as instructive as lt ls entertaining. A care?
fully prepared index adds considerably to the
value of the book.

Holmes's Bock: House.
Sir Henry Holland, eminent as physician
and as traveller, 1B almost as well known in
America as In England. lu the immense
range of his acquaintance he counts up no
less than six Presidents, Mr. Johnson being
thc last of them. As In the United States so
In all other parts of the civilized world, he was
the guest of distinguished statesmen and
authors. In this book be embalms the mem?
ories of the pleasantest or most celebrated
people whom he has known. To be living
now and writing about personal interviews
with Scott, Byron, Napoleon the Great, Can?
ning, the Schlegels, Sir-Humphrey Davy, and
scores more of the illustrious dead ot past
generations, implies a marvellous retention of i
mental and physical vigor. In a fresh, neatly j
turned preface, Sir Henry modestly records
his 84th year. There have been many remark
able instances of well-preserved body and
brains, but none of late occurrence superior J
to this. The book has only one fault-it ls too
