The proprietors of THE NEWS and The Cou?

prompt management of their business, and
for the protection ot advertisers, that the
practice of sending advertisements from one
newspaper office to the other be discontinued.
They, therefore, give notice that no advertise?
ments received at the one office will, in any
case, be sent to the other. At the same time
they beg leave to request advertisers to hand

That Waltz of Von Weber's.
Gayly and gayiy rang the gay music.
The blithe, merry music ol oarp and of horn,
The mad, merry music, that set ns a-dan lug
Till over the midnight came ateallog the morn.
Down the great hall went waving the banners,
Waving and waving their red. white and blue,
As tbe sweet sommer wind came blowing and
From the city's great gardens asleep in the dew.
Under the flags, as they floated and floated,
Under the arctics and arches of flowers,
We two and we two floated and floated
Into the mystical midnight hours.
And just as the dawn came stealing and stealing,
The hut of these wild Weber waltzes began;
1 can hear the soft notes now apr ealing and plead?
And 1 catch the faint scent of the sandalwood
Tba?ay in y oar band, your hand on my shoulder,
As down the great ball, away and away.
All under the flags and nuder the arches,
We danced and we danced till the dawn of the j
Bot why should I dream o'er this dreary old
in thu counting-room down in this dingy old
Of that night or that morning, Jost there at the j
When our hearts beat in time to our fast-flying
What ls lt that brings me that scent of enchant?
So fragrant and fresh from ont the dead years,
Taut just for a moment I'd swear that the music
Of Weber's wild waltzes was still in my ears?
What la lr. Indeed, in this dusty old alley.
That brings me that night or that morning in
What ls it, indeed?-I laugh to confess it
A hand organ grinding a creaking old tune i
But somewhere or other I caught in the measure
That waltz of Von Weber's, and back lt aU came,
That night or that morning, jost there at tbe
When I danced tbe last dance with my first and
My first and my last I bat who would believe me
If, down in this dusty old alley to day,
'Twixt the talk about cotton, thc markets and
I should suddenly turn In some moment and say
That one memory had only left me a lon el /
And gray-bearded bachelor, dreaming of Junes.
Where tbe nights and ibe mornings, from the
dusk to the dawn lags,
Seemed set to the music of Weber's wild tunes !

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
EDISTO ISLAND, Hay 18.
The planters are having a substantial verifi?
cation of the old saw, "It never rains but it
pours." Wednesday afternoon they were
blessed with a thunder shower; Thursday after?
noon we had a very severe wind, rain and bail
Btorm; and a soaking rain for the greater part
of Friday night. This morning ls cloudy and
blustering, giving fair promise of more rain
before the sun goes down. The cotton crop is
very promising, the stands are excellent, the
fields free from grass, and the plant ls grow*
lng finely. Very little corn seems to have
been planted so far, and in such fields of it as
can be seen from the roads, the crop is rather
The material prosperity of the Island seems
to be increasing. The plantera generally have
curtailed the area of their operations, and are
devoting ' -?creased time and attention to the
oultlvation of a ^maller number ol acres. The I
system which prevailed a year or two ago of |
Slanting the greatest number of acres poss!
le, p.ad only half cultivating them, ls fast
dy io;; out, and He better plan of planting only
that number of acres to which the most care?
ful cultivation can be given ls very generally
adopted. The number o? stores on me island
is qalte surprising. In addition to (he small
"commissary" kept by every planter, there
are on & single public road no lesa than nine
large atorec within a distance of eight miles.
There has likewise been a marked improve?
ment in the conduct and condition of the
negro. All observant men agree that he la
more polite and less turbulent than formerly.
There ls some difference of opinion as to bis
* disposition to work, some men of intelligence
maintaining that he ls growing lazier each
year, while others hold that he ls getting more
industrious. The truth Is, probably, that he
will work well tor thone who watch bim closely.
There ls no question as to tte improvement ot
his pecuniary condition. There ls scarcely
an individual darkey, of industrious habits,
but owns his horse or mule, and there are not
a few who own or hire their twenty to forty
acres of land.
The great project of the day here ls the
building of the Adam's Run and Big Bay (nar?
row guage) Railroad. An act authorizing the
construction of said road was passed during
the recent session ol the legislature. The
road will ras from Adam's Bun, on the Savan?
nah and Charleston Railroad, to either
Edlngs's or Pig Bay, on the seashore ot Edisto
Island. Its completion will pat Charleston in
daily communication with one of the most de?
lightful watering places on the Atlantic coast.
With such names among its Inoorporators as j
Hon. William Alkea, Hon. John Townsend,
and a number of other equally respectable
gentlemen, the scheme can hardly fail to be
successfully carried out. A preliminary sur?
vey of the proposed route was made on the I
16th instant by superintendent Gadsde ., of
the Savannah and Charleston Railroad. The
construction of the road will be commenced
some time next lall; the actual survey will be
begun immediately. Books of subscription
to the stock were opened on the 4th instant,
and considerably more than one hundred
shares were taken in ten days. The growing
traffic between Charleston and Edisto and vi?
cinity renders the completion of this road an
absolute and growing necessity. SPRITE.
A STORY OF 1S7?.
How a Civilized Government Treats
The Laurensvllle Herald, of the 17th, pub
llshea the following communication, signed
"J. A. L.:"
Thinking it might be gratifying to our per?
secutor?, and edifying to our friends, to put on
record some connected account of our recent
"captivity," I take my pen to sketch only the
most prominent points. For lear of implica?
ting any one else, by the sentiments I may
here express, I will mk the charge of egotism,
and give my personal experience and individ?
On that memorable Sabbath morning, March
31st, when quietly preparing for my Bible
class, In my own parlor, I was arrested by a
deputy marshal, under t warrant for "conspi?
racy and murder," and t oon after marched to
the parlor of Mr. Josep'i Crews, where I was
confined tor the balance ol the day. As the ma?
jority of Mr. Ri le j'o male members, including
two of his sessions were there, we had the
afternoon service in this same parlor. At sun?
set we were marched to the jail aud plunged
into the dungeons. Here we were kept uutil
about midday on Monday, when we were
graciously allowed the use of the passage and
the "debtor's room."
On Wednesday morning we were hurried
off, in road wagons, some eighteen In all, to
Union jail, escorted by a company of cavalry.
As we travelled most of the time in a cold,
driving rain, our clothes, shawls and blankets
were pretty well saturated with moisture
when we reached that jail, some time alter
dark. No dry blankets could there be fur
nished us, ar. the jailor told us all his supply
had been burnt ia efforts to restrain the re?
cent are. Thia rather threw a wet blanket
over our Drospecta fur a night's rest, but we
got through that night too. Tue next day we
were hurried to the cars, and reached Colum?
bia about sunset. Here we were marched In
procession lrom the depot to the jail, bur?
dened with our baggage, and flanked by
crowds of negroes of all ages and sexes,
who seemed to enjoy the pageant huge?
ly. Here again we were introduced to
the convict's cell, and confined with more or
less strictures for two weeks, before we were
summoned before the Unlied States commis?
sioner, for the first lime, to leura what lt all
meant. I pass over the fixing a day for the
examination before the commissioner, about a
week afterwards, the ridiculous farce of the
examination itself, and the awrul sentence of
the court-''remanded to Jail lor trial at this
term of the Circuit Court." "On to Charles?
ton" was then the next move. As the curiosi?
ty ol the ruling class in Columbia had been
well nigh satiated with Ku-Kiux pageant?, the
gentlemen from Clinton were handcuffed,
"two and two, Newgate fashion," to give some
new zest to this show, and iu that fix were
marched to the depot in Columbia, and lrom
the depot In Charleston to th? House of Cor?
red ion-something over a mlle.
About a week alterward?, the writer was
also sent to Charleston with the Laurens pris?
oners. The handcuff show was attempted on
bim, too, but thanks to the size ot friend Mac's
wrisr, lt was a failure. The law ol the impen?
etrability of matter would have hada hard
squeeze, If our five hundred pounds had been
forced Into one car seat all that night. We
were marched first to the Jail in Charleston,
and afterwards removed to the House of Cor?
rection, thus making a circuit of five jails In
less than five weeks. ThlB was on Wednesday,
the 1st of Mav, and on Friday, the 3d, lt was
announced ll?at Judge Bond hud signed an or?
der for the release of all prisoners, giving
bail from five thousand to len thousand dol?
lars. Saturday night I was again in my par?
lor, within a lew hours of Uve weeks lrom the
lime I left it so abruptly.
Facts anti Figures.
The tendency of modern investigation Into
the Influence of civilization on longevity seems
to show a twofold series of agencies at work.
On the one hand, sanitary improvements and
the lessened mortality from epidemics un?
doubtedly lend to diminish the average death?
rates; but, on thc olner hand, there is practi?
cally much less improvement in total death?
rates than might be expected if these amelio?
rating causes were not counterbalanced by
the increasing fatality of other claeseB ot dis?
ease, such as disease of the brain ana heart. It |
is important to recognise the precise lads.
The excess may, probably, to some extent be
regarded as an unavoidable resin t of the great J
menial sirain und hurried excitement of these
times, in which steam and electricity mark
time for us in an overcrowded community
where compeliiition is carried lo tho highest
point, and where the struggle lor existence,
not to say for Intellectual and other distinc?
tion, ls carried on with sleepless and exhaust
ingeoergy. Butan evil recognised issomeilmes
half cured; und t he intellectual chispes, look
lug al figures such as i hose which Dr. Quain
bas displayed at his interesting Ltimleian lec?
tures ai the College of Pbysiciaus, on diseases
of the walls of the heart, may well consider
the propriety of attending to the hygiene of
their lives, as well as of their houses; and to
remember thar, to enjoy and benefit by even
pure air, soil and water, they m URL avoid dis?
abling heart and brain by the Incessant, labors
which loo ofteu make useful lives joyless, and
embitter the harvesting of the crop which has
been but loo diligently sown. These warning
figures tell ibat, during the last iwenty years.
Hie total deaths of males of all ages from heart
disease, has increased In number from 5746 in
1851 to 12,428 in 1870. The percentage of
deaths from heart disease for 1000 of popula?
tion living, was .755 between the rears 1851
and 1855; it has risen to 1.085 from 1860 to 1870.
This Increase, it must be observed, too, hus
taken place wholly in conn-ct ion with the
working years ol active social lite. There ls
no change In the percentage of deaths from
this cause In males under twenty-live years ol
age. Between twenty and forty-five j ears of
age, lt has risen from .553 to .709. and that al?
most exclusively in males, (or lhere Is almost
no Increase In the percentage of females dying
from heart disease during the twenty-five years
oflife from 21 to 45. These figures convey
their own lesson, and wara ns to take a Utile
more care, not to kill ourselves for the sake
ol'living.-British and Medical Journal.
