_The London Timen, In speaking of the
presentation of Miss Neille Grant to Queen
Victoria, says the event is not so remarkable
as lt would have been in the last generation,
"for royal personages now go ireely on their
travels." There must be great Joy at tba j
White House. Master Fred has been shouted
over by the lazzaronl of Italy as "the Prince."
and Miss Neille has been called a royal per

-Paris, according to late advices, is fast be
lng restored, and all evidences of her recent
troubles obliterated. The streets are-belng re?
paved, tbe asphalts renewed, trees ever where
been planted, the Rue Royale no longer pre?

the Place de la Concorde Is being replaced
?tone by stone, and the Arch de Triomphe will
soon have no traces of the shells. The Bois
has recovered its former beauty, and the
Champs.Ely sees are thronged daily.
-While Nilsson returns to Europe with an
Immense bank account, Patti exists in a per?
petual shower ol diamonds ind francs. Luc?
ca is already rich, and the divinities of the
hour are everywhere so prosperous, it is not
without a pang of melancholy sympathy that

London. The great tenor lost his substantial
fortune by the failure of his bankers In Flor?

-After following with considerable admira?
tion and Interest the wanderings and adven
tores of that democratic despot, Don Ped o, ol
Brazil, from his Incognito visitations at Euro?
pean watenn.'-place? to Innocent flirtations
with Yankee girls among the Pyramids ot
Egypt, it ls a pleasure to koow that he has ac
. compllshed a "bon voyage," and is safe upon
his native heath a?aln.v His people, in expec
tallon of bis return with his family, were In a
fever of excitement, and the Rio Jan-,
.lro batteries quite startled an inoffen?
sive Antwerp packet by mistaking lt
for the Emperor's barge, and firing
their heaviest salute. The ml.ltary, too,
were thrown into confusion by the pre?
mature announcement, and the Emperor
spoiled his reception at home, as he has so
often done In other places, by stealing into
the capital before the desired "lusa and feath?
er" could be organized; consequently he got
few cheers except from Anglo-Saxon throats,
which are always equal to an emergency. The
tired soldiers were dismissed lor their dinners,
and only a levee or hand-kiss with the Im pe
rial f?oafjy, al! united, was Indulged In at the
palace. The Emperor assumed once more the
reina of government on the 1st of April; the
present cabinet ls expected to resign, and

from the enlarged practical Ideas of this second

-Alter a painful and wearisome Interval,
the Hassler expedition has been beard Irom
again* this time from Patagonia, where Pro?
fessor A nasals and, his Indefatigable party are
busily engaged in geological research of \he
mose Invaluable cn ar ne'er, A large number
Ot important discoveries have been made in
that terra incognita, which will be of tbe
greatest Interest to the publlo at large. Space
will not allow anyi hing like a complete col*
talton of the wonders seen and described by
the party. They have roamed over the
. d?serts where even thistles will not grow.
They have gathered a rich harvest of zoologi?
cal specimens, found winged oysters a foot in
diameter, and been pelted with hailstones as
large as walnuts. The dredging operations
have been rewarded, we are happy to say,with
abondant success. Not only holothuries, but
also aseidians and actiniae have been secured,
together with some very curious molluscan
eggs of the genus voluta, But lt is especially
gratifying to note the discovery of a floe float
ii g sp cl men o? the very rare macrocystls
pyrtfera. This lovely plant waa found to be
the nestling place ot Borne very charming
ernetaoeaus aud lilliputian echinoderm!*. But
it ls impossible to dwell at any satisfactory
length on this fascinai lng object, or to more
than mention the fact that the Patagonian
cliffs were lound to be stratified, the lower
portions consisting of a soft sandstone or clay,
highly fosalllJferous, containing torriitellie,
bucclnl, echlne and pecteres. "That Is suffi?
-America Is threatened with a wholesale
Irruption ot Immigrants irom Russia. The
Mennonite Colonies, which are situated In the
.,'onthern part of that country, near Berdl
Msk, numbering some lorty thousand souls at
least, and estimated at more than twice that,
propose moving In a body either to the United
Btatea or to Canada, In order to escape Irom
the obligations of military service, which is
contrary to their religions belief. It ls said
they have already presented petitions to the
American and British Governments, asking on
What conditions they will be received. As the
emigration of Buch a large body o? people, all
connected together by religion, friendship and
blood, ls a matter of considerable Importance, a
description ortne Mennonite habits and charac?
ter, ai' furnished by a correspondent of tue
Baw York Tribune, becomes of Immediate in
" tereit. The sect was established about three
hundred years ago by one Simonis, a recus?
ant Catholic priest. From an humble begin?
ning lt nae steadily increased in numbers and
Importance until th.e present time. The creed
of the Mennonites ls very simple and cl
resembles that of the Quakers; and theil
ject lsto restore the Apostolic Church t
primitive simplicity. Like all persons
communities having an unselfish motive,
have been greatly prospered In external
cumstances. Tbelr neatness and Indi
hare transformed a desolate and unprodui
region to a bloomlne garden, and many pi
entions have utterly failed to subdue 1
1 spirit. Their thrift, economy and Intelllgi
would seem to command them to the
favorable notice ot their prospective lei
South Carolina'and tbe Iliberal Ole
The Hon. A. P. Aldrich, in his fere
letter to Mr. Whitehead, of St. Louis,
nounces his approval of the candidates
tbe platform of the Liberal Bepublicans,
advises the Sooth to send no delegates to
National Democratic Convention. Dis:
sion and a split are apprehended, and Ju
Aldrich, with the result of the Conveotio
1868 before him, thinks that the Sont!
people should content themselves with i

case the dissatisfied Democrats of the Ni
and West might not be willing to assi

This paper has always nrged tba peopl
this State to consider every proposition a
milted to them in the light of their own
terest; for the one great reason that reft
in Columbia is more immediately and din
ly important to South Carolina than refc
in Washington. A change in tbe policy
the Federal Government, especially so i
ment?os a change as that which is conu
plated in tbe Cincinnati platform, would
of great benefit to every Southern State,
asmnch as it would throw the whole wei;
of the administration against robbery a
violence, and upon the side of whatever bc
of citizens might undertake tbe puriflcat
of the local governments. The Fede
officeholders would be required to cont
themselves to the discbarge of tbe datiei
their position. Tbere would be an end
the system of thrusting into a Federal oil
every blatant rowdy who professed to
able to Influence voles and control electio
The South would be at liberty, under I
State and National Constitutions, to wc
for the election of competent and uprig
public servants, and for the redaction
debt nod taxation. Nevertheless, if t
choice were between an immediate refoi
ID the State, through our own efforts, and
deferred reform through the agency of tl
Federal Government, we should unhei
tatingly choose the former and allow Nation
politics, whatever their promise, to take ca
of themselves. Speaking, however, for t
Slate of South Carolina, we cannot see thc
at this time, a wheeling into line in suppc
of Greeley and Brown will, in any way, le
sen the poor chance of making a change f
the better, next October, in the character
the government of tbe State. The cotiser v
ti ve people-call them Democrats, or not
appear to be settled in the determinatic
not to run a Democratic State ticket. Tbe
profess their willingness to sustain wbicl
ever wing of the State Republican pari
may offer them candidates worthy of the
support. But it is not by any means certai
tbat such an opportunity will bo nflbrdf
them. Scott, Moses and Mackey are har
to overcome. There may be only on
ticket in the field, and that of so infamous
character that no decent man can vote fe
it. lu this case what would tbe State bar?
gained by abstaining from taking part in tb
National movement for Amnesty, Honest
and the restoration of tbe constitutions
rights of the States? Nor is it likely tha
any set of Republicans in South Carolin
would be deterred from making up a Libert
ticket by the simple fact that South Carolin
was represented in the Baltimore Conven
tion, especially as the State election take
place some weeks earlier tban the electioi
for President. Any Republicans wbo cr
out for reform io tbe State, and at the sam?
time denounce tbe Bepublicans who an
working for reform in tbe United States
cannot expect their-fine professions to ha vi
mach weight with the white citizens, with
out whose votes they could not hope to bc
We do not think that the election of dele
gates to the National Democratic Conven?
tion will, in any way, nearly or remotely, in?
jure this State; and we come now to a con?
sideration of the advice given by Judge
Aldrich, in which advice we cannot concur.
Tbroughout the Union it is admitted, by tbe
Administration organs, as well as by tbe
Liberal Republican and Conservative press;
tbat Honest Horace Greeley will be the next
President if he receive tbe support of the
Democratic party. The Administration
papers, however, iasiBt that tho Democracy
dare not accept the nomination of Greeley
and Brown, and must nominate a straight
Democratic ticket. There is a deep signifi?
cance in this view. With the Grant party
tbe wish is father to the thought. They de?
cide that the Democracy will make a party
nomination, because they know that by that
coarse alone eau Mr. Greeley be defeated.
This opinion is held by tbe entire South, by
the greater part of the West, and by all the
Eastern Democrats, except those under the
leadership of the New York World and
papers of that stripe. These last take tbe
same line of argument as the Administration
sheets. Tney both assert that the Demo?
crats might have accepted Republican
Adams or Republican Davis, out cannot, and
must not, take up Republican Horace Gree?
ley. They are both working to secare the
overthrow of the Liberal Republican move?
ment, and the re-election of General Grant.
The conductors of tbe World and its hang?
ers-on would of coarse deny this impeach?
ment; but unless they are as blind and as
deaf as the idols of the Egyptians they mast
know that Mr. Greeley cannot be elected if
their advice be followed. It is not the first
time that the World has flown the track.
The frantic behavior of that journal after
the nomination of Seymour and Blair, during
the Franco-German war, before the Connec?
ticut election, and at the time of pressing
tbe claims of Charles Francia Adams as the
Liberal Republican candidate, is not likely
to be forgotten in a hurry. But there is un?
questionably a knot of hack politicians, who
insist upon a Democratic nomination ; and
unless public opinion ripen with unparal?
leled rapidity tbere will be a sharp contest
in the Ballimore Convention between the
irreconcilables and the conservatives. Un?
less the Southern States are represented in
that Convention, the probabilities are
that the dissatisfied Democrats will carry
the day. With a strong delegation
of Liberal Democrats from the Sooth
in that Convention, it is almost certain
that a Democratic nomination will be
averted and the Cincinnati candidates
and platform be accepted by the Democratic
party. This last course insures the success
of the Liberal Republican movement-it in
sures to the South four years of Fair-play
and Equal Rights, it insures to the whole
country a return of harmony and peace.
The question is, Can the South afford to run
any risk, when it is evident that in the bands
of tbe Southern delegates practically lies the
decision whether the Democracy shall, or
shall not, nominate party candidates? The
Southern States, in other words, will deter?
mine, by their presence and by their votes
at Baltimore, whether Grant or Greeley
shall be the next President of the United
Slates. To ratify the nominations at mass
meetings wonld have no effect. There is
only one way in which the designs of tbe
Rule o- Ruin Democrats can be frustrated,
and lhat is by votiDg Ibem down in the Na?
Another consideration presents itself to
the people. The Liberal Republicans have
broken party ties, have brought down upon
their beads ibe malignity of the Executive,
and have exposed themselves to the con?
tumely and abuse of the administration or?
gans io order that they migbt form a new
party which should give Amnesty to the
South, which should' respect the writ of
habeas corpus, which shou'd restrain Con?
gressional violence, aDd should, ia all things,
treat the Southern people as American citi?
zens and the Soulhern Stales as equal mem?
bers of tbe American Union. They were
not bidding for Southern support. Their
only motive was tteir love of country, and
their respect for the constitution. But tbe
words of their platform, and the names of
their candidates, appeal to the South with
gigantic force, and we should deserve a
worse fate than has yet befallen us if we
basely deserted the statesmen and patriots
who have nobly raised their voice in our be?
half, and are struggling^) achieve the very
reforms most essential to our prosperity and
content. The Southern Stales can cause
victory to perch on the banners of the Lib?
eral Republicans; bal todo this they mast
stand by them throughout the canvass, and
must^above all things, strive to overthrow
the faction who, If we stay at home with
folded hands, will, most likely, defeat Gree?
ley and Brown on the floor of the Baltimore
