-The New York Journal o? Commerce!1
thinks that one of the principal objects of tbe
Japanese mission to tblB country ls to float ali
loan in the American market-In other words, I ;
to borrow money of us, Japan, lt says, has j,
lately been studying op the mysi?rie? of Mr.i.
Boutwei's finance, and lt ls said that she pos

-The figures In the New Tork Journal of 11
Commerce showing the Imports of dry goods I
Into that port for the month of February are
rather startling. The total lor tbe week Just j
ended ls upwards of seven and a quarter mil- j
lion dollars foreign gold value, the largest
weekly total pf dry goods which ever entered j
any port of the United Slates. This brings I
tbe aggregate for the month up to seventeen I
and a-half million dollars, against fourteen r
and a half minions for February of last year,
which wah then thought to be very large.
-John Brown, Queen Victoria's groom, who j
was gosElpped about so scandalously some [
years ego, ls now a d em1.-hero since he rescued 11
her.Majesty from the empty pistol ol an I
empty-headed fanatic last week. It will bell
remembered that the "Queen's book" made a
good many mean people seem very mean in
reference ."to that lalihful servant." Since
bis conduct on thia remarkable occasion the j
press praises him and tbe wcrld feels kin Hy
towards him. Truly, If a man walt long
be will have his time.
-Prussia, lt ls reported, possesses a source
of wealth which enables her to conduct wars I
without as great sacrifices as have to be borne
by less" favored countries. This source of
wealth consists In the possession of the means
of obtaining a sufficiency of bones. In De?
cember, 1867, in the entire kingdem of Pros
Bia there were 2,313,817 hones, while ihe pro- j
vince of Prussia alone, constituting 18.6 per
cent, of the entire area and containing one- j
eighth of the pot ula1 ion, had at the same lime j
680,721 hones. Just previous to the Franco
German war, tbe average price paid for army !
hones was only $120.
-A correspondent who has been on a visit
to Chiselhurst says that in the arrangement ol I
^the Imperial household everything ls very I
simple, and pre Bents a striking contrast to the j
sumptuousness of the Inmates* former days.
The Emperor no longer indulges in expensive
wines; the table ls humbly served, and ?es
toilettes d?collet?es absolutely banished. His I
ex-MsJesty keeps only one carriage, and hall
a dos? n horses, and the Empress goes out gen?
erally on loor. Napoleon III rises early and
works hard; be reads all the papers ai ten live?
ly. - Ali frivolous pleasures and mundane
amusements are forbidden; the Empress has
embroidered an ornament for ChlEelburet
chapel, and tbe young Prince is being trained
like a Spartan.
-The pub' lc ibat holds its sides to avoid fatal I
effects ot the laughter which the representa- j
tlon of ' Paul Pry" Inevitably produces, bas j
doubt lea? forgotten all about the au
that irresisibly comic /ara, and yet
generation might have?njoyed the eec
ties of the in trading gentleman with tb
hat, the boots and the umbrella in eqi
getfuiness, had not Mr. John Poole, a fi
ago, quietly left the world he has so
amused. The most curious clrcumetan
nected with the death of this author-01
adapter, for "Paul Pry," like "Simpson ,
"De a: as a Post," and others ol Mr
works, was translated from the Frei
' that he died from lack of social corni
ship. He outlived ail bis contemporary
the brilliant society ol which he WSB one
most famous lights pass away, and never
persevered in the error of outliving his pt
Ity. In h I a old age Charles Dickens was h
friend, though a kind and constant ou
not only secured him a smalipens?o?, bi
ried lt-to the superannuated play-wrlgb
Bell on quarter-day. In anticipation' ol
visits, lt is said that Poole used to dra'
long list of subjects on which to coi
wlth,hlB famous friend. When Dickem
Poole languished for his lost cbmpanlo
and Anally testified to the value of his
by following him to the grave. But I
Poole ls not remembered, "Paul Pry" w
yet be forgotten wherever the Eoglie
guage is spoken.
Tile Financial Agency.
The report of the Comptroller-Gei
just printed,. con tains a statement c
transactions of the Financial Agency o
State, during the fiscal year. This is /
in fonr separate accounts: First, the ge
account of money received and paid b
Financial Agent Tor the purposes of the!
Government; second, the Agricultural
account; third, the State Arms acct
fourth, the Land Commission account.
1. Upon the general account a balam
$1,267,075 63 is due the Financial Ag
which includes the balance transfc
from the three special accounts. An
the expenditures we find $192,172 57
"interest and commissions on loans,
"peaces, express charges, telegrams,"
It is, however, distinctly stated by
Klmpton, in presenting the account,
he has not included his commission
Financial Agent. As security for the
ance of $1,267,075 51, and for "com m isa

Bonds State Sooth Carolina.$4,929
Old State bonds received.203
Sinking Fund bonds. 200
Land Scrip bonds. 191
Blue Ridge Railroad endorsed hodds. 599
2. The Agricultural Land Scrip acco
shows that the sale of the scrip, at 72i cet
produced $130,500. Of this amount, $1;
192 were invested in Land Commissi
bonds, viz: $100,000 at 68, $68,00Q; $91,1
at 67j, $61,652, and $8,000 at 67 J, $5*
The expenses were $253, anda balance
$54 60 is transferred tb the credit of I
State on account No. L
3. The State Arms account shows that 3
bump toa paid out $182,602 66 for S ti
inns. To this is added $24,025 02 for j
eraet, making the balance against the Sta
?206,627 08. This account clears up sot
If the statements of the Radical Joint I
restigating Committee on the same subjet
9ae thousand Winchester rifles and am m
cition cost $38,275; the remainder of tl
amount paid out for arms ($144,327) repr
?nts, we presume, the expense of alterii
iie 10,000 Springfield rifles given to tl
State by the General Government. . The:
inns were thoroughly serviceable, bot it wi
determined to convert them into breec
caders. Contracts were made with ti
Soberts Arms Company for the conversic
of 5000 rifles at $8 85; with the Ben
ington Arms Company for 5000 i
19; also, with the American Metall!
Ammunition Company for one millio
cartridges at $37 a thousand. These cot
tracts amount to $126,250, but we find tho
the payments made by Mr. Eimpton, upo
these contracts, amount tb $144,327. Wba
oas become of the diff?rence of $18,077 bc
tween the amount of the contract and th
amount paid? Was it Mr. Pond or Go ver
nor Scott who received this commission
But the sum of $18,077 is only a small par
of the cheat. Mr. Isaiah Woodbury wh<
was, at different times, the treasurer of th?
Roberts Arms Company and of the Amen
can Ammunition Company, made affldavi
before the Joint Investigating Committee
that his company were famishing cartridge!
to other parties at $31 a usand at th<
lime that it was agreed to supply them tc
the State at $37 a thousand. The committee
also show that the price actually paid the
Roberts Arms Company was $6 50 a gun,
instead of $8 85; and it is doubtful whethei
the Remingtons received more than $6 s
gun. The American Ammunition Company
gave receipts for $37,150 and only received
$21,817. These different statements enable
as to make an approximate estimate of the
stealage in the matter of the State arms :
Stealage of $2 35 upon 5000 guns of
Roberts Arms Company.$11,750
Stealage of $3 upon 5009 guns of Rem?
ington Arms Company.. 15,000
Commissions on one million cartridges, 13,172
Difference between the nominal amount
of the three contracts, ($126,250,) and
the amount ($144,327) charged the
State for conversion of arms and for
ammunition-. ;. . : v. :. 18,077
We do not pretend to say who are the
thieves. Mr. Hampton paid out tbe money
upon the order ot his official superiors. The
responsibility rests upon those who signed
the drafts upon Mr. Eimpton, and upon those
who received the money. It is the fashion
in the Legislature to deride the report of the
Joint Committee, bat it is plain that Comp?
troller Neagle substantiates their most dam?
aging assertions iL regard to the Sooth Car?
olina Arms swindle.
4. The Land Commission account gives in
detail the sums of money paid out by the
Financial Agent. Among them we rind
drafts to the order of Z. B. Oakes amount?
ing to $120,752. Ex-Governor Orr received
$4,400 and $17,020, and Joe Crews received
$4,150. The total expenditures were $648,
855 82, and the interest at 7 per cent, is
$63,223 57, making a total of $712,079 19.
The whole resources of the Land Commis?
sion were $700,000 in State bonds, and if
these bonds were sold at an average of 50,
which we doubt, the Land Commission have
exceeded their means by at least $350,000.
And, unless the Land Commission is terribly
slandered, the property which it has pur?
chased at a cost of $712,079 would not Bell
to-day for a hundred thousand dollars.
J The WaUree Bridge. ' g
We learn that Colonel Wm. M. Shannon
and HeBBrs. Clarke and Baom, Special Com?
missioners from Kershaw Conn ty, are now
in Cbarleston; the object of their visit be?
ing to obtain the assistance of the South
Carolina Railroad Company ia making ar?
rangements for tbe building of a bridge
across the Wateree at Camden. Tbe com?
missioners are empowered by Act of Assem?
bly to issue county bonds and obtain the
means required for the work, and, as the
construction of the bridge will throw open
to the South Carolina Railroad and to
Cbarleston a large and wealthy section of
Kershaw County, we sincerely hope their mis?
sion will prove snccesBfai. We learn that
the commissioners met with a cordial recep?
tion, and expect to complete the negotia?
tion and begin, bnilding at an early day.'
An Honest Republican I
In the House of Representatives, on Tues?
day, Mr. B. A. Bosemoo, one of the colored
members from Charleston, made the follow
lng manly declaration of his opposition to
the Blue Ridge swindle:
"lt having been reported to me that certain
persons have asserted that my absence from
the House, on Saturday, when the veto mes?
sage of bia Excellency, relating to tbe act to
relieve the State of South Carolina of all
liabilities for Its guarantee of the bonds of the
Blue Ridge Railroad Company, came up for
consideration, arose from a desire to shirk the
vote that wonld necessarily ensue. To tb ose
who were instrumental in putting this report |
In circulation I bave no reply or explanation
to make, regarding, as I do, their belief or
opinion with supreme indifference.
'.For the Information of my friends and con- j
slltueDt?, however, I desire to say that my ab?
sence from the House, and from the city, was j
due to the serious indisposition of a member
of my family at my home in Charleston.
"In conclusion, I would state that had I been
present, I would have voted, as I have ever
voted, when soch m?aeureB as the one now re?
ferred to were presented to me, viz : with the
minority of the members of this House."

relation to selling spirituous liquors to habit?
