There is nothing passive in that Now, if the

Some time ago one Norton, cashier of the
postofflce, turned out as a defaulter, and the
United Stales Government came down on his L,
securities, among whom was Horace Greeley, I,
responsible to the extent of about thirty thou
sand dollars. * Greeley was very restive under
tola obligation, and be is so mach la fear of
debt, -that be actually wanted to give his I
check for thc whole Bum .and get lt off bis 11
mind. Finally a meeting ot the endorsers was 11
held, and Mr. Greeley put on his spectacles,
took up his bond and dolefully read over the
conditions. "They say I write an infernally
bad band," said Greeley, ,lbut they caa read lt
plain enough when it gets on one of these j

-Among the good passages of Greeley's 11
life, ls his advocacy of tbe claims of the widow
of the Irish poet, C. G. Halplne. Halpine
died soddenly in the possession of no office
worth $70,000 a year, out of which, with a
poet's want of thrift, be bad saved nothlug
except some partial payments on a good house
In Lexington avenue. He leit a half dozen
orphan children, who would have been re?
duced to extreme poverty la a few weeks but
lor Horace G reels'vs influence. Greeley went
personally, telegraphed and seat messages to
Albany, Insisting that Fenton should put Jones
or some of Halplne's friends in the register's
office and let the profits accrue for tho whole
of tbe unexpired term In favor of Halplne's
family. Fenton had no great friendship for
Halplne, and .was loth, to give away aa office
of such value for a mere sentimentality when
lt would have been of ihe highest use to him
as aa ambitious politician. Greeley showed
great force and industry in bringing influ?
ences to bear upon Fenton, and among other
things, be telegraphed to Grant Sherman and
Sheridan, ant the leading generals ol the
army, imploring them, on1 behalf of a com?
rade, to send dispatches to Fenton at Albany,
urging him to do right by the widow and tam
Hy. So industrious were these things done
that Patrick Jones was made trastejo of the
office, and the* whole proceeds thereof for the
remainder of the term were secured to the be?
-The Pall Mall Gazette has made the dis?
covery that disturbances of the luterior forces
of the earth have a remarkable connection
with political changes. Thus In 1855 the
resignation ol the Aberdeen Ministry was fol
lowed by a ser'.ous eruption of Vesuvius.
When Lord Derby resigned in 1859 the same
volcano made mother demonstration. After
the Trent affair, and the release of Mason and
Blldell, Torre del Greco, at ihe base of Vesu?
vius, was destroyed by a stream ot lava. On
November 12, 1867, another eruption of Vesti?
rlos began, and on December 13 tthe Fontana
attempted to blow up Cierkenwell Prison.
This eruption continued until February, 1868,
when. Lord Derby resigned and the Disraeli
Ministry coming Into power, the mountain
ceased Its mutterings. Mount .Ema, too,
bas been affected by the political disturb?
ances In England on several occasions. In
1832, when the Reform bill was passed, .Etna
belied over and destroyed the neighboring
bown of Bronte. There was a violent eruption
of .Etna ia 1352, when the Duke of Wellington
died; and, in 1865, an eruption lasting from
February to July was followed by the death ol'
Lord Palmerston and the accession of Earl
Russell to. power. The Gazette ls of the
Dpinion that the recent breaking oufof^esu
vlus will be followed by the breaking up of the
Gladstone ministry. Accepting these views
as well founded, lt ls not difficult Tojccount
tor the late earthquakes in this chantry,
which, beginning In California, made the earth
tremble lrom the Pacillc to ibe Atlantic Ocean.
These Internal disturbances were evidently
the preliminary indications of the great politi?
cal earthquake which is already beginning to
shake the foundations of Grant's corrupt ad?
ministration, and which, by November next,
will result in a general upheaval of political
strata, the burial out of sight of numerous
fossil politicians, and a general purification ol
the political atmosphere.
In our telegraphic columns this morning
will be lound a synopsis of the formal letter
of acceptance by Horace Greeley of the Pres?
iden Liai Dominatian by tbe Liberal Republi?
can Convention It is an honest, manly ut?
terance, breathing exactly the sentiments
that are needed to r .-'te tho country for a
glorious future, and maai command the
heartfelt Amen I of every man who is Dot so
blinded by party passions or crazed by greed

An Agricultural lt evolution.
A comparison ol the statistical tables con?
tained in the United States Census Reports
for IMO aad 1870 indicates that a vast
change has taken place in the agricultural
condition of South Carolina since the end of
the Confederate war. Whether the revolu?
tion, for such it may oe called, is the result
of a conviction that small farms can be
worked more profitably than large ones, or
whether lt grows out of forced sales arising
from excessive taxation, or whether it is to
be attributed to purchases ot land, and to
the renting of farms by the laboring classes,
or to a combination of all three causes, it
may be difficult to say. What is to be dealt
with is the broad fact that the area of the
South Carolina farms has been diminished to
a startling extent since i860.
In 1860 there were 28,456 farms of all
sizes In South Carolina. In 1870 the total
number or farms was 51,889. The number
of farms had nearly doubled in ten years.
Nor can this be attributed to any increase in
the quantity of land under cultivation-for
the census shows that there were only
3,010,539 acres of improved land in the
State in 1870, against 4,572,060 in 1860.
The area of land divided np into farms is
one-fourth less than it was ten years ago.
Nevertheless, the number of farms hos nearly
doubled. A farther examination indicates
the class of farms which have been affected.
In 1860 there were in this State only 352
farms, containing less than ten acres each.
In 1870 there were 10,474 farms of this class.
This immense increase points unmistakably
to the acquisition ot homesteads by labor?
ers, and as the operations of the Land
Commission were a huge swindle, it is fair
to assume that the purchases were made oat
nt Iks pMMcJo of Jebel, and nob 1>J lilt) US
sistanceof the State. In the farms containing
ten acres and less than twenty acres there is
also an astonishing increase; the nnmber
rising from 1219 in 1860 to 9.146 in 13~0.
The farms of twenty acres and und^r fifty
acres have risen in number from 6695 to
16,415; bat the farms of fifty acres and less
:han one hundred acres number only 8148
in 1870, against 6980 in 1860. Now come
:he farms which have been cut up to make
ihe small holdings. In 1860 there were
11,300 farms of one hundred acres and less
chan five hundred acres. These dwindled to
rn? ia 1870. Of farms of live*hundred acres
ind less than one thousand acres there were
L359 in i860,' bat ia 1870 there were only
165. The largest class of farms, ranging
ibove one thousand acres, have fallen in
cumber from 482 to 129.
At a future day it may be practicable to
mow approximately the extent lo which
production has been affected by the reduc?
ion in the area of the farms. But in all
,hese calculations it most be borne in mind
hat the ignorance of the majority of the
colored people and the inexperience of the
:ensus officers, prevent the public from re?
garding the agricultural statistics of tbe
Southern States with the same confidence
with which they look upon the returns from
he North and West.
\. WOMAN'S EXPERTKNCKSI IS EOROPS ; includ?

By Mrs. E. D. Wallace. New York : D. Ap?
pleton & Co. 1872. Charleston : Holmes's
Books of travel are spun by the thousand,
md their number is supposed to be evidence
>nough of their popularity. A few of them
ne really good-spirited, impartial and onter
olning-buti for the most part, these sketches
if travel, notes from abroad, or whatever else
hey may be calle J, are written for the gratlfl
ation of persoual vanity, by tourists who
mow less of Europe and Europeans when
hey are homeward bound thau when, with
.n armory of prejudices and a score of Baro?
oga trunks, they set sail for Liverpool. Mrs.
Vallace ia not one of this lost clas9; although
icr book ls far from being a model production,
t ls lively, fresh and gossipy, and makes the
eader feel that he ls a witness of the gay
Ights which are described. Mrs. Wallace
iaw what there was to be seen, and made the
nostofheriime. There ls, also. Ul element
>f attractiveness In the circumstance that the
mthor gave particular attention to the Amerl
ans who are studying and working on tbe
eminent. The sketch of the American artists
a Borne is a case in point. Some of the
escriptlons are very picturesque-notably
hose of Dresden and of the mid-Lent
musements In Paris. But the author is a
borough New Englander in her impatient
logs at what she does not believe in or un
erstand. And her experience at the Bal de
.'Opera must have been rather peculiar, Inas
iuch as, immediately afterward, she prevent
d two American mothers from sending their
ans to Paris, telling the anxious mammas
lat Bhe would as soon give a son of hers "a
passport to Gehenna." Is there not coarse
ice enough In New York and even Pniladel
hla, to make it somewhat absurd to fear to
ena a boy to Paris because of the gambols at 1
n annual masquerade ball? Nevertheless,
ne might do worse than saunter through ?

R. S. Eleventh and entirely revised edi?
tion. In two volumes. Volume L New
York: D. Appleton & Co. Charleston:
Holmes's Book House. ,
. There has been an Interval of Ave years be?
tween the tenth and eleventh editions of the
Principles of Geology, during which time
much discussion has taken place on important
theoretical points bearing on meteorology
and climate, and much new information ob?
tained by deep-sea dredging In regard to the
bed of the ocean and Its living Inhabitants.
Slr Charles Lyell, therefore, found it necessary
to recast several chapters, and at the same time
he has endeavored to render more intelligible
some of those periodical changes which most
affect climate. The latest known facts concern?
ing marine currents are dwelt upon, and the
theories ot oceanic circulation are considered.
With these exceptions the work has been re?
printed mainly as lt stood in 18C7, with correc
tlooB and additions. The preface from which
these explanatory remarks ure token is dated
July 16, 1872, so that the reader of the eleventh
edition has the advantage of all the changes
and corrections which the course of scientific
investigation, up to the beginning ot the
present year, has enabled Slr Charles Lyell to
make. The edition ls illustrated with maps,
plates and wood cuts, and hos e. complete in?
dex. In every respect it does credit lo the
skill and business tact of the great publishing
firm by whom the American edition 1B Issued.
