Tue Sun, of this morning, has the follow?
ing: "Several leading Republicans from the
Southern States have been consulting together
In this city during the past few days as to the
question of national politics. Most of them
were decided at the start to go to the Clscin
natl Convention. Some are original Southern
ore, others are among the Btronge3t and best
Northern men who have settled in the South
since the war, and who have always acted on
the advice of such men as Horace Greeley and
Charles Sumner. These gentlemen met yes?
terday in the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and decided
to consult Senator Sumner on the subject and
be influenced by his advice. The dispatch of
Sumner, when received, will probably be of
great interest to Republicans all over the coun?
try, especially to those ot the South. We hope
to have it for publication to-morrow.

Effect of the Presidential Campaign 1
on Negro Labor-Important Conside?

The New Orleans correspondent of the Ne>v
York World writes : j
Business men in this great cotton mart are i
dlscusslBg a serious problem. What will be \
tbe effect of the Presidential campaign on the
next cotton crop? The question ls one ot :
equal Importance at the North, for upon the ;
great staple depends our ability to meet our ,
commercial obligations to Europe and to reg?
ulate our business at borne. It ls beyond douut
that General Grant will make extraordinary
efforts to carry tbe Southern Sfates. To
this end every Bpecles of cajolery, every
sensation dodge known to political wlre-pul
lr-rs, will be lived to bring out and fasten the
negro vote. There will be mass conventions,
barbecues, torchlight processions, protracted
meetings, and all that sort of thing, to tickle
the African ear and eye. Labor will therefore
be uncertain in its operations. The negro, af?
ter all, is but a child In intellect. He ls easily
drawn away by glitter'and show. The excite?
ment and dissipation of a political gathering,
the flattery and fawning of white men who j
want his voie, are peculiarly attracllvo to j
ulm. He ls Improvident. He has no dis- i
position to work for more than a bare ll veli- <
hood. When the barbecue comes in compet?- <
tlon with the hoe, free liquor at the hustings 1
with toll In the field, who doubts where our ;
colored brother will be found ? The hotiest j
part of the Presidential campaign will come
in the picking season, when a day or an hour ?
lo?t is so much lost to the cotton crop, and a i
loss that cannot be retrieved. Is lt not possi?
ble, therefore, that next season may be a very
short crop in consequence of the partial with- 1
drawal of the negroes from labor, and may :
not the price for middlings once more range
In the thirties ? The matter is worthy of
thought in the commercial world.

THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE.
Awful Destruction of Life and Property
.-California Stinking Night and Day
Vast Chasms Opening In the Earth
The Population of Lone Pine Burled
Volcanoes Bursting Forth in the
Further accounts from the late California
earthquake Indicate that the convulsion was
one of unprecedented severity. About thirty
persons have been killed and wounded; seve?
ral settlements are in ru,..., the earth's sur?
face has been permanently marred by Assures
or sinkings, and, to crown all, symptoms of vol?
canic action are reported from several places.
The locality In which this extraordinary dis?
turbance occurred is in the middle of the
southern part of the State, In the new coun?
ties ot Kern and In yo, formed from the coun?
ties ot Matlposa and Tulare. The region
most afflicted is divided by the Sierra Nevada,
Kern River being on the west side of the
range and Owen's on the east. The country
Is evidently oi volcanic origin, being sprinkled
with scoria;, tufa and other traces ot volcanic
action. Although San Francisco is compla?
cently represented as contemplating the catas?
trophe with unruffled serenity, lt is to be
hoped that some of Its scientific men will feel
sufficient interest in the phenomenon to go
down and Investigate it. The following are
the latest accounts of the awful phenomenon:
SAN FRANCISCO, March 31.
Dispatches received Irom the volcanic dis?
trict in Inyo County, lour hundred miles south?
east from this city, give additional details of
the earthquake disaster on Tuesday last. The
shocks still continue, though with decreased
violence. It is remarkable that only a slight
shock on Tuesday was felt In Central and
Northern California. Cerro Gordo **as badly
damaged, having several buildings thrown
down and one man killed. Lone Pine appears
to have been directly over the centre of the
disturbance, and among the kilted there was
Mr. Grey, aged forty two, a native ol Texas.
The remainder were all SpanlBh-Americans.
The first shock ls described as resem?
bling a park of artillery, fired directly
beneath the town. Colonel Whipple, who
was In the second story of an adobe house,
states that he bad just time to jump
from bed and get to the doorway, when the
house appeared to crumble to pieces beneath
bim. He was hurried among the ruins, but
succeeded in extricating himself from the
debris, having received several severe but not
dangerous wounds. A terrible geeoe ensued
when the first shock was over. Nearly the
whole populace were buried beneath the ruins.
Cries tor help and screams of pain from the
wounded beneath the ruins filled the air,
while those who escaped were calling for aid
to rescue fathers, mothers, wives aud chil?
dren. The first shock was followed in quick
succession by three others. Over three hun?
dred distinct shocks were felt between half
past two and sunrise; in lact, the earth was In
a constant tremble for over three hours. A
chasm was opened extending thirty-five miles
down -the valley, ranging from three
Inches to forty feet in width, rocks were
also thrown from their places, and rolled
down Into the valley. At Swaozea, Colonel
Tregallas, of the Smelting Works, was killed.
Great desolation prevails among the Inhabi?
tants of Lone Pine. A dispatch to-day from
Visalla, says several shocks were felt in that
city last night, and are etld coming from the
southeast. There are rumors of a volcano In
active operation having been seen from the
summit of Greenbood Mountain, sixty miles
south of Vis illa. The Indians in that vicinity
have all left, fearing the recurrence ot the
general convulsion ol nature, which, accord?
ing to their traditions, occurred In that re?
gion some hundreds of years ago, and created
what is known as Owen's River Valley, but
which was, before that time, a chain of monn
lains. The section seriously affected by the
earthquake was sparsely lo habited, and maiu
y people engaged In working the silver-bear
DH lead mines.
LATER_Additional advices from Inyo
bounty place the number of killed by the
earthquake on Tuesday at thirty, besides one
.mn(ired wounded. In the desert country,
stretching from Owen's Lake to the Mexican
lae, are innumerable craters not long ex?
tinct, besides several mud volcanoes, and it is
supposed that-some of these old volcanoes
nay be in emption again. A gentleman from
Independence asserts that smoke and ashes
rom a volcano were distinctly seen south?
ward from tbat place, and word has been
irought there tbat lava was Been flowing down
he mountain, but the report ls not authenll
sated. The shocks continued, decreasing In
bree up to Thursday morning, when over
me thousand bad been counted. At Tibbett's
.anche, fifteen miles above Independence, forty
icres of ground sunk seven feet below the
surface of the surrounding country. BigOweu's
L>ake has risen four feet since the first shocks.
)wen's River ran over Its banks, depositing
ihoals of fish on the shore: aiterward it re?
eded. Through Lone Pine the earth
?racked, one side remaining stationary while
.he other sunk seven or eight feet, leaving a
.val! ol earth extending over three miles in
ength, where formerly was a level plain. In
lumerable cracks were made throughout the
calley. Kern and Owen's Rivers turned and
.an up stream for several minutes, leaving
.heir beds dry, and finally returned with
argely Increased volume. There has been no
>arallel to this earthquake since the year
1812, when the Missions of San Juin Canistra
10 and La Purissima, in Southern California,
vere destroyed. Of course the earthquake is
he matter of oom tuon conversation tnrough
mt California, but creates not the slightest
ipprebenslon out -?ide of the district affected. | !

THE LIFE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA.
Annual Report for 1871.
The annual report of the president and
other officers of this Institution was placedlo
our hands some days since, but we have not
heretofore noticed lt, being unable to give it
tbe examination lt deserves.
The report covers over twenty pages ol
neatly printed octavo pamphlet, and gives a
concise view of the present financial condi?
tion of the association, its business during the
past year and prospects for the future.
President Britton reports to the members of
the association the formation and succ?s si ul
operation of twenty-seven departments of the
company, occupying a territory almoBt co?
extensive with the whole Union. Each of
these departments is managed by a board ot
directors of thirteen members elected by the
trustees each year,* tbe whole formlog a per?
fect machine, the motive power being at the
seed office in-St. Louis. The depart men; s, In
addition to their local government, participate
ilso in the government of the association as a
whole, each president of a department board
if directors being also a member of the gene?
ral board of directors of the company. The
Institution works with an extraordinary
harmony, as the powers and duties of its
managing beads, as well as the- rights and
priv.U^es of its members, are all clearly
iefloed in its comprehensive charter.
The energetic, aggressive spirit of the asso?
ciation ls evidenced by the lact, ert forth in
he paper before us, that seven new depart?
ments nave been organized during the past
pear,-and that ?ge* cn mote ai ctn procesa of
formation. Among these latter especial
nentlon ls made of New York, which Mr.
Britton states will be organized within a short
jerlod. This bas, since writing the report,
iecome an accomplished fact, as our readers
?ave already learned from ihe telegraphic re?
ports in our columns.
In remarking on the proud success of the as?
sociation lp New York-the cradle as well as
the stronghold ol Us powerful competitors
.he report says: "This ls a great triumph, and
it proves conclusively that the principles upon
which the association ls based do not call for
.he patronage of merely a single State or sec
Ion of the country; they are universal In their
application, and must be recognized by the
whole nation." The experience of the compa?
ny shows the Justice ot ihe remarks, for we
ind representative boards of trustees (num
sering in the aggregate over three thousand
members) in all the principal cities, viz: New
ifork, St. Louis, Baltimore, Pittsburg, Cincin?
nati, Louisville, Mobile, New Orleans, Mem?
phis, Indianapolis, Detroit, Chicago, San
Francisco, and several other important points.
The report goes on to show the progress of
the association during the past year. In this
connection the following figures will prove
nteresting to our readers as well as gratify?
ing to the members of the association :
The amount of insurance in force at the
close el' 1871 was $52,817,446, showing an in?
crease for the year ol" $7,191,706.
The assets were $3,613,153 50. showing an
Increase In this Item of over a million of dol?
ara from the business of 1871.
The income during the year was $2,276,
The cash paid to beneficiaries of deceased
policy holders was $390,174 68, and the dlvi
iends returned to policy-holders amounted to
The president of Ihe association takes
cognizance of a somewhat demoralized coa?
lition of the insurance business for which he
accounts by the general scarcity of money and
the dishonorable course adopted by many
companies who circulate defamatory articles
reflecting on their competitors. This part ol'
his subject he sums up with tbe following
:au-tlc remarks: "As tbe business becomes
more difficult to obtain, this intense strife'
[-rows fiercer, and charges ol mismanagement
ure hurled unsparingly by the companies and
their agents at each other. It is a matter ol
surprise that men who are entrusted with the
management of insurance companies cannot
see that ibis disreputable course must eventu?
ally demoralize the business generally, and
necessarily recoil on themselves."
This ls some common sense, and we fear
that the reflection on the shallow Judgments
of men who think they are increasing lue pop?
ularity of their own companies by heaping
odium on other institutions, proves that many
of our Insurance companies have men to guide
their destinies who fall to see their duties.
This association has been made a special
target for the envenomed shafts of the envi?
ous and malicious lu the business, but lt has
bravely withstood all attacks, and now sur?
veys its assailants from tbe proudest position
ever attained in the same time by any corpo?
ration of Its class lo the world. As a result
of one of these malignant attacks, the report
of his investigation into the condition and
affairs ot the company by the Hon. Wylljs
King, superintendent of tne insurance depart?
ment ot Missouri, is given by President Brit?
ton to the policy-holders and the public.
The Investigation by Mr. King, as set forth
in the report before us, may be summed up by
Baying ll was searching and exhaustive, and Its
result is eminently satisfactory.
Oo the whole, this report of ihe Life Associa?
tion of America for 1871 ls characterized bv the
Fame open, fearless exhibition ol Its affairs
which have characterized Its management
from the beginning, and which in a great meas?
ure accounts for its success. It gives results
uever parallelled by any similar Institution In
the world. It has overtaken In Hs race for
bulslnessits oldest competitors, and ls now, be?
yond doubt, one of the loremost Hie Insurance
companies in the West.-St. Louis Ripublican.

GIl.tS'D DRESS REHEARSAL OF THE
BATTLE OF DORKING.
Things In France and Spain.
LONDON*, April 2.
The grand military review took place at
Brighton yesterday. Immense crowds wit?
nessed the manouvres, which were conduct?
ed on a large scale and were rendered more
than usually Interesting by a rehearsal of the
battle of Dorking. The troops in the field,
including ' some twenty thousand volun?
teers, were divided Into two armies, one of ?
invasion and one of defence. The enemy was
supposed to have effected a movement In
Sharcham harbor. The movement commenced
by an attack on the village and lu capture,
alter a strong resistance. The army of de?
fence, being largely reinforced, took the offen?
sive, under General Horsford, and attacked
the Invaders with success, although the latter
drove through Horslord's right centre and
created great confusion for awhile. The
firing ceased at one o'clock, both sides having
been Impartially beaten. Tlte mock fight was
succeeded by the march past, which was not
satisfactory. The review, on the whole, is
considered a failure. The weal her w?s fine,

at the bedside of the Invalid, to the delicai
perfumes and bijouterie destined to grace tl
abodes of beauty and play their useful par
In sacred mysteries of bewitching toilet
The first floor is the salesroom, where ls to t
found an assortment of everything known I
the drug trade, and remedies for all the ll
that flesh Is heir to. Along the southern wa
the spacious shelves are crowded with evei
description of patent medicines In unbroke
packages,tncludiog.ot course, the preparation
of which tbis firm are the sole proprietors an
which comprise' the famous Sumter Bitten
Moise's Liver Pills, Moise's Horse, Hog an
Cattle Powders, Moise's Fever and Agu
Pills, Moise's Popular White Worm Candj
and Moise's Morning Star Teast or Bakln
Powders. On the opposite side of the store :
row of handsome showcases contain th
various pharmaceutical preparations for whlc
this bouse bas the exclusive agency, and thee
are terminated by
THE SAMPLE COUNTER,
which ls a prominent and convenient featur
of this room. This is a long counter furnlshe
with drawers and shelves, in and upon whlc
are arranged samples of every commodit;
sold In the establishment. This is an obvlou
convenience, as by its means the custome
can be quietly seated at the counter with hi
memoranda of wants, the lists of prices, Ac
spread before him, and select irom this ampi
assortment a stock of goods sufficient, ii neei
be, to supply tbe largest drug store In tb
country. Near this ls a large upright show
case filled with Ritter's trusses and bandage
of excellent make and-of every. requlslti
shape, fitted for the correction or relief o
every possible deformity or mallormatlon
Next comes another showcase, which ls ltsel
aa ingenious and admirable Invention. I
Includes a patent spring Intended to preven
the falling and breaking of the mirrored doon
which is so frequent and expeneive in tb?
common showcase. These showcases an
made by Messrs. Hoffman & Fersch, and arc
furnished by this house in any size and shape.
The case now under consideration contains a
large assortment of Tiemann's medical and
surgical Instruments, Including electric bat?
teries, physician's pocket cases, ear trumpets,
hyperdermlc syringes, lancets, Ac, all of th?
most Ingenious description and of beautiful
material and finish. On the shelves In rear ol
these showcases are arranged a variety ol
standard medicines In convenient prepara?
tions for use by druggists and physicians.
These Include fluid and solid extracts of every
drug known to the medical profession, and an
immense variety of sugar-coated pills, pre?
pared according to approved prescriptions by
Messrs. Halnce Brothers & White, warranted
soluble, reliable and permanent. Here are
also a large assortment of elixirs, those agree?
able substitutes devised by
THE INGENUITY OF SCIENCE,
to take the place of the nauseating drugs and
powders with which the physicians of former
days were provided. These are put up by
Messrs. John Wyeth & Bro., of Philadelphia,
and are ol the standard strength and purity.
One tier of shelves ls devoted to Messrs. B.
Keith A Co.'s concentrated tinctures and pow?
ders, In which the full strength of the essen?
tial principle of the drug is preserved while its
bulk is infinitely reduced. On other shelves
along tbls walt are attractively displayed a
choice assortment of perfumes, pomades and
extracts, prepared by Tao ?andt & Pollock,
Philadelphia, and other well known Northern
houses, or Imported direct from France and
Germany. The walls of the store are thickly
hung with the elaborate and artistic show
cards published by this house, and which are
now familiar to the public. In cc-iEmon with
other manufacturing establishments in this
Une, Messrs. Dowie, Moise A Davis find it to
their interest to issue beautiful show cards,
and some of their pictures and trade-marks
are particularly striking. The trade-mark
adopted for the Sumter Bitters ls a fine view
of Fort Sumter, with the Confederate colors
flying from the flagstaff. For Moise's fever
and ague pills, the Arm Issues a handsome
painting on g!ass, which ls a sort o? allegory,
and represents a hideous crocodile-flt type of
malarial disease-defeated and crushed down
to the unwholesome depths of his native
swamp by the weight of a gigantic pill pres?
sing down upon his back.
The next door ls devoted to
THE MANUFACTURING DEPARTMENT,
and to the supply o? drugs In open packages
from which td make up wholesale orders. On
this Aoor are manufactured all the long list of
preparatioos of which this firm are the sole
proprietors. Of thuee the most important ls
the Sumter Bitters, which is made in six bar?
rels from the various aromatic and bitter
herbs, and other ingredients of which lt is
composed, and then pumped up into a barrel
supported overhead which forms the main
reservoir of the manufactured article. From
this barrel it is drawn off Into bottles by a
simple and ingenious device. A .large table
t near the reservoir is covered wilh about an
hundred bottles, standing upright and un?
corked, and from the reservoir depends a
long rubber tube vrltli a slender nozzle and
stop-cock, which the workman passes from
one bottle to another, holding it perhaps for
six or seven seconds over each, and Ailing the
whole lot with great rapidity. These bottles
are then labelled and wrapped np, while
another lot of bottles on a second table are
being filled, and by this ing?nions process two
workmen are enabled to fill and prepare
for market about ten gross of bottles per day.
A similar degree of ingenuity ls displayed in
a dozen other labor-saving contrivances in
this department, and indeed the whole esta?
blishment is systematically and admirably ar?
ranged, and Its internal mechanism is like
clock-work. Above this floor ls another one
devoted exclusively to the large stock of
empty glassware which ls kept for use and for
sale. Here are bottles of all possible shapes
and sizes, from the minute receptacles which
the homceopathtsts use for their microscopic
preparations np to the ' five-gallon jars and
demijohns, together with measuring glasses,
tunnels and all the other mysterious shapes of
glassware with which the shop of the apothe?
cary or the laboratory of the chemist are sup?
plied. Above this again, the fourth and last
floor of the establishment, ls stored with the
endless variety of wooden and paper boxes, of
all styles and sizes, used in putting up the
medicines manufactured by the house, or In
packing goods for transportation.
This concludes our hasty glance at this most
complete establishment. It only remains to
be said that
THE TRADE OF THIS HOUSE
is Immense, and affords a gratifying indication
ol the business Importance of our city. The
establishment ls one of the largest of its kind
south of New Tork, and has very extensive
business connections in both the Carolinas,
Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee. The
members of the Arm have all had long and
practical acquaintance with the drug business,
and are recognized by every member of the
mercantile community as gentlemen of in?
tegrity, shrewdness and ability. The eminent
success to which they have attained has been
but the natural and inevitable result of their
indomitable perseverance and energy, their
inflexible integrity, their judicious and liberal
use of advertising, and every other effective
means of making their business known, and
their steady determination to place their es?
tablishment at the head of Us class in this sec?
tion of the country. Their prosperity bas been
of their own making, and richly deserved, and
tbat it may long continue ls the hearty wish of
their hosts of business friends.
