be Justified la deserting their belter-halfs for
this reason; and lt ls plausibly argued that,
since much less obnoxious conduct on a man's

not to be allowed-to pit herself against bim

-The captain cf a steamer irom Genoa thus
report s the stormy weather which raged in

tar the vessel met with fine weather for six
days, after which it encountered a continua?
tion of gales from west southwest to north
northwest, veering every lew hours, and ac?
companied with squalls of terrific force.
During twenty-five years' experience afloat I j
never encountered such weather. In the
squalls the water was actually torn up ia
sheets and hove lu the air. Bain poured in
torrents; the mastheads were enveloped in
clouds; the lightning fairly blinded us, and
the thunder cracked as it wera amongst the
masts, deafening all on board. Never in the
tropic or uear the line have I been in such
close proximity to the Ughtnlag. This
weather continued more orv less un to the 15th
instant, when lt gradually moderated, en?
abling us to make some headway."
-The latest effort to determine the exact
spot where once stood the great City of Troy
-the Iiion of Homer's Iliad-is being made by
Dr. ' Heinrich Schliemann, a German saVant,
whose name ls familiar for his scientific
travels lu Nicaragua. The doctor commenced
his investigations of the basin of the Scaman?
der River lu, 187?, And selected the site of New
Ulan, a city built lu the sixth or seventh cen- j
tnry, B. C., on the supposed location o? Troy,
but which now no longer exists. The great
disadvantage connected with this most Inter- j
esting research ls, that nothing absolutely
certain survives to Indicate, to beelu with,
that Troy, even in the days of Homer, was
anything more than a fable and a tradition.
Dr. Schllemaun, however, steadfastly upholds
the opinion that a city called Troy once existed,
but that its remalos have not yet been dis?
covered. If these ruins can be discovert-d,
he Bays, they may be found only on the spot
where New Ilion slood. He bas pursued
his investigations on Mount Hisurlik, a lofty
hill bordering on the alluvial plain of the
Scamander. He has dug to a depth of thirty
three '.teStVSelow the surface ot the hill, and
has discovered many Interesting remains of
human handiwork in the shape of stone im?
plements ol' rough manufacture, bronze and
copper articles, wide earthen burial vase?,
ump, tripods, drinking vasee, band-mils of
stone, and bouse walls, consisting of large
?tones cemented by mud, Idols of a ptiap-like
exterior, and also rough drawings of
head?. In the layers nearer the surfac
found a great number of articles made oi
ra-cotta, and resembling boys' tops. On
these contained a nicely engraved inscrit
in Phoenician characters, consisting of
letters. Dr. Schliemann does not, howe
connect these discoveries with Troy, bul
the contrary, is of the opinion that t
mounds are much older than the Trojan
-probably by a thousand years or more,
interesting archeological fact In these dis
eries ls that implements of the stone pe
are found In layers above that of the bn
or copper period.
For the Benefit of Wall Street.
From the beginning it was evident t
the grand object of the late Legislative
sion was to strengthen, at any cost,
monetary credit of the State. It is true I
our legislators held few bonds or ste
themselves, and cared little for the inten
of Northern capitalists; but they were gi
to understand that to leave the State in
financial slough would ruin the Rad
party, and that the payment of their c
"six dollars a day and mileage" depen
upon their prompt adoption of the entire
ries of monstrous measures offered for tl
acceptance. They squirmed and protest
but ended by complying with the behest
The interest on the public debt remaii
unpaid: tbe Legislature passed a law reqt
iug the annual levy and collection of a I
sufficient to pay that interest in full.
Doubts were cast upon the validity of se1
ral millions of the new bonds : the Legis
ture passed a law declaring every bond
ready issued legal and binding upon t
The conservative press had included t
railroad endorsements in their reckonl
of the State debt : the Legislature gave t
Blue Ridge Ring $1,800,000 in con s ic
ration of the4 cancelment of the State c
dorsement to the amount of four million di
It was thought that the Financial Agen
might be io the way of the speculative sain
who proposed to restore the fiscal fabric
its ante-bellum completeness : the Legisl
ture passed a law authorizing a settleme
witt the Financial Agent and the saspe
j sion of the Agency.
i . Rumor said that the famous Sterile
1 bonds were about to be issued : the Legisl:
tura at once repealed the law and appoint?
a joint committee, who certify that the bon?
Lastly, at the suggestion of THE CHARLE
TON NEWS, the Legislature adopted unas
mously a resolution for an amendment I
the constitution prohibiting any addition t
the State -debt, except with the consent <
two-thirds of the people at a general el ec
This completes the list of remedial Qnai:
clal measures; excepting always the Licens
law. There' is not one of them, save tb
constitutional amendment, of which th
mass of the taxpayers approve. They ar
the work of the\>fflcials and the Ring, who
trusting to retain for a decade the control o
the State, are determined at all hazards ti
go on validating and taxing until they havi
restored the credit of the State in Wal
street, and forced its bonds back into thi
seventies. And the taxpayers are power
less, or, which is much the same thing, the:
believe that they are so. The legislation o
the session has already caused the bonds U
advance nearly ten per cent. This may b<
all very tine for the money lenders and stock
jobbers, but it is a terrible wrong to thc
people of tbe State.
Fcrly years ago a bloc ml: j young girl ol
sixteen married an old mao of sixty lor hte
mouey, expecting that he would soon die and
leave her a wealthy young widow. Last week
the lady died at the respectable age ot Atty
six, leaving a husband aged one hundred, and
four children to mourn her loss,
-The above is going the rounds of the
press as "a sad mistake." Sad, why sad ?
We see nothing sad about it. The mao at
the time of his marriage was not such an
old man. Many older men have married.
Last year a man ninety-two years old was
married in Florida, and he was so fat that he
coukln;t pall his marriage license out of bis
breeches pocket, and it bad to be cat out
with the bride's scissors before tbe ceremony
could be perfected.
As for the young girl of sixteen wbo mar?
ried a man of sixty, the assumption thut she
did so for bis money is purely gratuitous.
No woman marries for money; and if this
one did marry for money she got forty years
of comfort and four children. Was there
any "mistake" in that ? True, she was not
left a wealthy young widow. But if ehe ex?
pected to kill oil a man of sixty simply by
marrying him, Bhe was a great goose, never
read her Bible, and knew nothing of the his?
tory of Solomon.
No; women do not marry for money or
wed with murderous intent. We go further
and say that women marry solely out of com?
passion. Motives of a selfish or mercenary
natare never actuate them. They give all
to get nothing. Pity is akin to love, and
I what is more pitiable than an old man ? Wo?
men ought to marry old men and nonejither.
What earthly use has a y;uog manT?Ta"
wife; what good can she do him ? He don't
need her. He can drink whiskey, smoke
cigars, ride horaes, play cards, sit up all
night, fly around generally, jump, run,
walk, Bwim, play on the accord?on, eat
what he pleases, wear fancy clothes, tight
boots, has got no corns, no asthma, rheu?
matism, is not bald or hip-shot, wears no
spectacles, can Bleep ia damp sheets, and go
to the theatre and join the masons, fish,
hnnt, fight duels, travel, play billiards, part
his hair in the middle, get in debt and enjoy
himself in every conceivable way. To such
a man a wife, especially a young wife, is a
superfluity. An old wife, who would act as
a mother and guardian to him, might be of
service to him.
But when a man is in the sere, spavined,
wheezy, purblind, broken down, used up
aod played out, then he really needs a wife,
and a young, able-bodied one to take care of
him. irritate his scalp with a line-tooth
comb and smooth his pathway to the tomb.
And he ought to be able to pay handsomely
for these services. A3 woman's life ia one of
self sacrifice, that most beautiful and touch
iug trait in ber character should be illustra?
ted, brought out and developed. This caa
best be done by marrying an ancient and
dilapidated man. The "sad mistake" is in
marrying yoong men. It ought never to be
Good Signs for tfce Sontra.
[From tbe New Tort Tribune.]
The Southern papers are filled with adver?
tisements of land fertilize?, and the mer?
chants appoar to be competing greatly for the
sale ol them. The demand, lt seems, is some?
thing quite extraordinary in the South, and Is
an oncouraglug sign for the beginning of the
pluming season. It ls evidence that if the
lands are worn their owners are not disposed
to leave them In that condition. Proprietors
of small cotton mills in the North are begin?
ning to discover that there ls some truth In
the idea of concentrating their resources, and
there are indications that during the present
spring a large number of that class of manu?
facturers are preparing to carry their ma?
chinery Into factories In the old cotton dis?
tricts. They will save freight on the raw ma?
terial, they will get fresher and cheaper labor,
and they will find unrivalled natural agencies.
With Improved and reinvigorated fields, and
with a home market for cotton and labor, the
South can get along very well, without much
politics. _ _

We have received from Mr. George F. Phelps,
the A trent of Messrs. Schermerborn A Co., of
New York, copies ol the above-named works.
The first In the list is the new edition
ol Worcester's quarto dictionary, which has
been prepared with great care, and deserves
the high praises which it has everywhere re?
ceived. As well as we can judge, lt is both
accurate and complete. The Introductory re?
marks are lucid, and, upon disputed points,
present tbe opinions ol the mott eminent
philologists. We find the definitions clear,
impartial, concise, and well sustained by au?
thority. The latest terms In science and art
are described, and abundant notes give the
student valuable and interesting Information
on various subjects of Importance. Vocabula?
ries are furnished o? geographical and proper
names, ancient and modern, and there ls a
full collection of phrases from foreign lan?
guages, as well as a key to tbe pronunciation
of classical and scripture proper names, and
a list ol abbreviations used In writing and

nation of the Comprehensive Dictionary of

number of words have been added, and in its
present form lt is admirably adapted for use
in high schools, ia families and in the count?

volume of 388 pages, known as the Primary

?viii not correct the growing evil. They may
prevent its Increase, but they do not effect a
radical cure, which can only be secured by
llflusing a knowledge of the origin, struc
:ure and laws of our mother tongue. The in?
troductory essay in the qua: to dictionary may
ie taken as authority upon these subjects.
Or. Worcester understood his work, and, of
iouree, avoids the orthographical barbarisms
n which Dr. Webster took delight. It is true
hat, in the later editions cf Webster, many
jhanges for (be better have taken place. The
kLeperd" in 1806 ls "Leopard" in 1838, and we
?do not read now that "lt haz been Bald that
'coquells often loon their reputation, while
.they retain their virile;" but In no sense are
ve willing to accept even the last edition of
Webster as a safe guide. Worcester, on the
ither hand, may be trusted. And what we have
laid of orthography applies to pronunciation.
?Ve do not, in all things, agree with Worcester;
)ut In Webster we have no confidence what
iver. The remaining objection to the mod?
ern Webb ter is that Us dell ail lons of political
ivords and terms are frequently sectional and
injust, and convey to the reader a wholly
ivrong Idea. We pointed out the other day
he changes made In Webster In the definition
)f such words as constitution, compact, na
,lon, congress and republic. All these words
lave been defined by the present editor of
Webster's Dictionary so as to furnish argu?
ments against the democratic view of our in?
stitutions, and against the views of Dr. Noah
Webster himself, whose definitions were ac?
cepted as correct. Indeed, Dr. Porter's edi-"
Jon of Webster's dictionary ls no longer Web?
ster at all. In marked contrast to it is tue
juarto Worcester, which ls colorless in its de
Initions, ls to be preferred to any other
imerican dictionary, and ls the equal ol
my dictionary now published.
We warmly commend the several edlllons
