-Gold closed yesterday at lOjaloi.
-Cotton closed firm in New York; uplands,
23 cents; sales 15,000 bales.
-The Liverpool colton market closed
strong; uplands Hailed ; Orleans Hid; sales
-The new fashionable color for evening
gloves is called Incarnadine, lt is a very light j
-Two o? the foremost leaders of the beau
monde in Paris recently appeared au* fashion?
able ball without chignons. It ls said an effort
is being made In Paris to do away wi th these
unnatural appendages. . .
-From Washington it ls reported that
- Judge Davis la in constant communication with
the Labor Reformers and: is mapping out the
canvass to ault himself. The statement that
- Governor Parker will withdraw from the
ticket ls pronounced incorrect.
-The New Tork health report for the week
ending on the 23d ls quite as unfavorable as 1
that of its predecessor. Whole number of]
deaths 685, an Increase ot 64. This marked
increase is undoubtedly referable to small?
pox, - of which there were 112 cases and 30 1
deaths, an Increase in the former of 32 and of j
the latter 13.- - .
. -A Belgian journal announces that during
tbe sojourn of Comte de Cbambord at Antwerp
a letter came to him through the poBtoflice,
postmarked "Versailles,1, and addressed "To
his Majesty the King o? France, Hotel St. An?
toine, at Antwerp." What is curious about
this is, that the postmaster at Versailles should
have failed to alter this absurd address, which
was on its face an insult to the French Re?
-A large fire occurred inValdosta, Georgia,
on Tuesday, destroying several business
houses. Willis Allen lost two thousand dol?
lars' worth of property-no Insurance., M.
Nelson lost two thousand dollars-no insur?
ance. The losses of S. A. Smith, Jr., will foot
np three thousand dollars-no Insurance.

of Dr. Staten are about one tho asan d and Ave
hundred dollars-partly insured. George W.
BobertB lost eight hundred dollars-no insur?
ance. The stock of J. B. Wither was damaged
to the amount of three hundred dollars-ln
. sured. W. Joyce lost about one hundred dol?
lars-insured. The losses of Henry Ehrlich,
- B. Ehrlich and R. Thomas were very light.
Th? fire seems to undoubtedly owe its origin
-The famous tunnel connecting the Middle?
sex and Surrey banks of the Thames In the two
sections of London known as Wapplng and
Rotberblthe is to have Ita riva), if a bill now
pending before the New York Legislature be
passed, by a tunnel to connect the cities of j
New York and Brooklyn. The bill incorpo?
rates the New York and Brooklyn Submerged
Tubular Bridge Company, and authorizes it to
.construct a tunnel, or iron tube, across the
East JUver large enough to contain a carriage?
way, a footway, and a horse railway, lor the
movement of both passengers and freights.
The rates of toll which the company ls allowed
to collect are certainly very moderate: One
cent for toot passengers, three cents for cattle
and horses, six cents for horse and light
wagon, twelve cents for double wagons, eigh?
teen cents for loaded carts and drays and
twenty-four cents for loaded double wagons.
It ls provided that the grade ot the approaches
.on each Bide shall not exceed five feet in the
hundred, and provision is made by which the
oompany may condemn and acquire the land
necessary to the construction of said ap?
": -Appearances indicate that the Dominion
of Canada ls about to be the scene of a gen?
eral '-strike" for a reduction of the hours of
labor. No decided action bas yet been taken,
but there seems lo be a general understand?
ing tbat tbe ''nine-hour movement'.' will be
pressed to an Issue before the first day of next
sommer. The strike lor nine hours is tobe
made merely as a step toward a further re- ?
duct lon to eight hours hereafter. In order to
secure, or, lt necessary, enforce their demands,
an extensive and powerful organization bas
been formed by a> combination ot all the trade
societies In the cities and .towns of impor
- tance. It ls understood that tbe Intention Is
to give all employers lormal notice, of the
desired reduction, and such other reforms
as circumstances may require. This step
is to be taken in a friendly and deter?
mined way. BO as to raise no unnecessary ob?
stacle to the amicable settlement of the whole
question. But If the employers firmly refuse,
a --grand strike" ls expected. The employers
are sensible of the gravity of tbe crisis, and
have also formed a league in two or three
cities to resist the workingmen's demands.
They maintain tbat an increase o? ten per
cent. In wages-which ls the financial phase of ]
the nine-hour movement-would devour the
whole or greater part of their profits; and con
sequently it-would, in the majority or cases,
be simply ruinous to make the concession.
There ls a strong likelihood that they will hold
out to the last, and resort to desperate shifts
before coming to terms. At any rate, an in?
teresting and exciting contest ls anticipated
-At last the long expected musical Hamlet
has been given in New York, with Nilsson as
Ophelia, and the public is satisfied-with
Nilsson, and dissatisfied with tne rest of the
opera. Judging from the different crltlcisms
which are unusually concurrent-Tnomas's
Hamlet ls by no means a great work, and not
as melodious or original as --Mignon." The
first difficulty In Mr. lhomas's way is a very
obvious onp, namely, the difficulty of inter?
preting tbe idea of that most exalted genius,
Shakespeare. Many lhere be who can appr??
cia' e M* poetry and sympathize with his no
blest sentiments, but who would dare lo set
thens to muslo! Echo answers, "M. Thomas."
But he could not but fail where Meyerbeer
dared not make an attempt to succeed, and
whereeven Mendelssohn got beyond his depth.
The libretto 1B, of course, atrocious, and the
situations monstrous. Hamlet (shade of the
departed poet S) has a drinking song lo place
of lhe advice to the players; and both he
and the Ghost have endless and somniferous
recitatives of a dreary and exasperating char
aoter. The one redeeming ieature of the
opera ls Nilsson, and the one striking scene
the last one, where Ophelia weaves garlands
and distributes rosemary, and then floats down
among the rushes to her death. The audience
was very large, and Mlle. Nilsson was greeted
with even an exceptional enthusiasm, enor?
mous quartiles of flowers were showered at
her feet, and among the tributes was a large
floral crown, on which two beaut Hui tame
doves w?re perched. This fairly overcame the
artiste, and she kissed the cooing objects in
the sight of the assembled multitude. This
act was followed by ear-piercing and glove
spllttlng applause. Mlle. Nilsson salis for Eu?
rope early in May. The proceeds of her Amer?
ican trip are said to have been $400,000, and
no one grudges her the money either.
-"Gath," the Washington correspondent of
the Chicago Tribune, writes: "I observe, In
the statistics of immigration for 1871, that,
while the immense number of three hundred
and twenty thousand souls came Into this
country, yet still ninety-two thousand left it;
and the fact that a great per cent of these
were people who had once come out Irom the
old country ls shown by the lact that Arty-four
thousand of them went to Europe In the steer?
age. There ls evidently a reflex movement to
a considerable extent, in tne matter ot Imml
1 gration, due, without doubt, to the enormous
price ol living here, and the fact that twenty
five bushels of wheat will not buy a common
coat. Cloth, taxed sixty per cent.; buttons,
forty per cent.; braid, sixty per cent; lining,
sixty per cent, and padding, one hundred per
cent, offset the twenty-five bushels of wheat
Add to this one hundred per cent duty on raw
wool, fifty per cent, on the machinery which
spins lt, and sixty per cent, protection on the
made-up fabric. And with all this, wool ls
only thirty cents, while, before it got protec?
tion, lt brought fifty cents a pound."
Fur Sale, Cheap:
Our Columbia correspondent telegraphs
that the delegates from this State to the
Philadelphia Convention are about to visit
Washington and demand tbe removal of
several government officers. This arrange
ment was made when the delegates were
chosen. Their plan is to offer President
Grant the solid vote of the delegation, ir he
will remove all the respectable Federal c iii- I
dals in South Carolina and appoint the l
creatures of the Scott Bing. We shall soon :
see whether General Grant is ready, witb
the fall knowledge of the whole country, to
sell his official patronage io secure bia re- !
election. . '. _ .
The Washington toadies are delighted i
with the. Japs. These are courteous, in- 1
telligent, speak English fluently, admire 1
American beauty, have unpronounceable
names, and bear high-sounding titles. The
members of the embassy are equally at home
when replying to a Congressional delegation,
sliding down banisters, or swallowing soup 1
with their beads where their feet ought to
be. They are assiduously interviewed by
newspaper men. They and their country
are bedaubed with Lattery. Ail tbe tom?
foolery which was practiced wi?n the CM- 1
nese big-wigs visited the United States is !
noisily repeating itself. Bat the keen j
Asiatics have ac eye to business. They see
all that is worth seeing, and learn what 1
they care to learn. The President welcomes
them to his official residence. Colleges re?
ceive their young men as favored pupils
The privileges of We3t Point are granted
This is the way in which the Japs are
treated. How do they show their apprecia?
tion of Christian servility ? The latest news
from Japan is tbe reply. At Nagasaki the
native Christians are slain by tbe hundred.
A high Japanese official is tbe bead tormen?
tor, and pots tbe Christian converts to death
by batches. Sixty-seven recently perished
in one lot." Starvation, imprisonment with?
out light or clothing, exposure on frozen
ponds, and the forcing of burning coals into
the moutb, are among the favorite modes of
torture. It is stated that tbe foreign consuls
in Japan have already informed their re?
spective governments of these atrocities,
and it is boped that the British Government
* We shall be told, we suppose, that the
barbarities of the Japanese are none of our
business,- and that we bave no right to re?
quire them to be tolerant and humane, if it
is their sweet pleasure to be bloodthirsty
and ferocious. But tbe Japanese Govern?
ment, in sending ambassadors to tbe United
States, expects to be recognized os a mem?
ber of tbe great family of civilized nations,
and it is time that the Japanese should be
given to understand that as long as they be?
have as incarnate devils at home, they need
not expect to be greeted os angels of light
when they choose to travel abroad. The
opportunity is an excellent one. Iwakuri
and bis colleagues are quick of comprehen?
sion, and an official remonstrance on the
part ol the government would cause them to
realize the fact that they will not be treated
os a civilized nation while the bloody work
of persecution continues. They know where
their interest lies, and will either change
their domestic policy or tacitly admit that
all their soft talk is a miserable sham.
A Valuable Work.
I Messrs. Duffie ?fe Chapman, of Columbia,
will soon publish the latest work of the Hon.
Alexander H. Stephens, a Compendium of
United States History, designed fer schools,
colleges, and general readers. The volume
will be divided into two books, Colonial his?
tory and Federal history, and will consist of
about rive hundred pages.
Competent critics who have examined the
manuscript of the work pronounce it to be
the best history of this country yet written.
Mr. Stephens has an intimate acquaintance
with public affairs; and we are assured that
bis Compendium of History, in both manner
and matter, will be worthy of his reputation '
a3 one of the first of living American states?
