carry nearly seven thousand pounds when

-As Madame Lue i ls expected to visit us

Journal Is ot Interest: "Madame Lucca's action
ls warmer and more tragic than that of Nils?
son. Her vocalization has more color, pas?
sion, aud enthusiasm; is less a cold, construc?
tive body of beauty, fuller of pulse vividness;
and vitality; more sensuous and living; less
like a splendid Btatue of ice, brilliant, scintil?
lating, reflecting every passion of lyrical
drama, but posserae 1 of none. As a conse?
quence, hor style is more sympathetic, and
exacts aa equal sympathy from the audience.''
-Secretary Boutwell last week received a

ed me to pay over to the Government ot the
United States, ia aa unobtrusive manner, a
sum ol money, as a token ol the obligations
be feels under to this free and noble govern?
ment, and hlB mite toward the payment ol the
national debt. Enclosed, tberelore, please
find my check on the Central National Bank
of this city, to your order, for four thousand
dollars, which I send to you as the proper re?
cipient, on behalf of the United States."
-The Japanese maidens, ia Washington,
are making aa excellent impression upon
those whom they meet, and learn the accom?
plishments and fall loto the general routine of
cultivated American society very easily. A
correspondent of a New York paper receotly
bad the pleasure, for such he coosidered it,
of playlDg croquet with three of them, tor
they have cometo understand the game as
well as Ah Sin, from assister empire, did
euchre. They are reported to be quite pretty
and graceiul In tho extreme, and they take
kindly to the American dress, which they are
now able to dispose with as striking effect as
the best-trained Filth avenue belle, though
some awkwardness was manifested at nm,
they having been quite as apt to appear with
morning robes bottom side up or wrong side out
as the right way. They are not Princesses,
bot daughters of the nobility, and are now
under the direct charge of Mr. Morl, chief of
the embassy, who one day had to be sum?
moned to preserve discipline among them.
The American habit of staring gives them a
great deal of trouble, and is an Impertinence
which they are never guilty cf, their manners
lo general being unexceptionable. Their
English ls very good, considering the time
they have spent upon lt, though they think
that Americans talk very fast, and have a
great many Charlies among them. On the
whole, the prospect is that when their educa?
tions have beeu completed, Ia ten years from
now, they will compare lavorably with their
Caucasian sisters, and prove the experiment
-The Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial writes: "There has
been, within the past few days, a rumor circu?
lated very quietly to the effect that a power?
ful movement has beea organized to defeat
the ratification of the nomination of Horace
Greeley by* the Baltimore Convention. The
parties in this movement are said to embrace
wealthy business men and bondholders, who
believe that Mr. Greeley, If elected, would not
take euoh a course as to retain our present
high financial standing among the nations o?
the world, and also men of the Dan. Voorhees
stripe, who are opposed to Greeley on every
account, by free traders in the West, and by
all dissatisfied Republicans, who failed to
8ecure the nomination of their candi?
dates at Cincinnati. It Is represented
that circulars of a confidential nature have
been Bent out; that letters have been writ?
ten to varions paris of the country, and that
the movement has already such an Impetus as
to secure the nomination at Baltimore o? a Re?
publican whose-vlews In the past have been
of a more conservative and less pronounced
character than those o? Mr. Greeley, and
whose personal record has been more con?
sistent. Reports even go so far as to say that
the administration has encouraged this move?
ment, and is lending what force lt can to the
furtherance of its object, viz: the deicat o?
Greeley and the election of Grant. It is freely
charged that a conspiracy to this end has
been worked up between the administration
men nnd the straight-out Democrats of the
Voorhees stripe. The fact that this Important
political project has just been made public
Induces the belief that it is of recent origin,
and less powerful than reported, but that such
a project ls on foot there is little doubt."
To the City Council:
The City Council, at their meeting to
I night, will determine whether four or five
thousand dollars shall be wasted in the en
J doavor to prove that the Enterprise Railroad
j Company have not the right to complete a
great public work. We are not the advo?
cates of the new concern which disembow?
els streets and interferes with irafBc; bnt we
are, in Borne sort, the representatives of the
taxpayers, and we are not willing that the
hard-earned money of the people should be
spent in what the official advisers of the
Conned bave declared to be a vain and an
ill-judged contest The patriotic spirit of
General James Simons and Mr. M. P.
O'Connor gives the City Council an oppor?
tunity of reconsidering their decision. We
can only hope that the conduct of Council
may be in unison with the popular will, and
in keeping with the pledges nuder which
they were elected to their important office.
Tile Prospect for Saudi euroli??.
The popular favor with which the nomina?
tion of Horace Greeley has been so unmis
tnkabiy Lulled throughout the whole South j
is accounted by the press and politicians of
the North as among the most puzzling phe?
nomena of the day. They seem not to un?
derstand the fact that the Soulhern people
bave done, for the present, at least, with
wrangling over the abstract political theo?
ries, the petty spites, and the buried issues
of the bitter past, and are bent solely upon
taking care of their own material interests
in the future. Soulh Carolina, which is in
worse plight than any of ber sister Slates,
alfords the most striking instance of the
change which bas of late years come over
the public sentiment of the South. Between
the wholesale plundering of their rulers in
' Columbia, and the persistent persecution of
their rulers in Washington, her people have
lost all interest in things political, excepL in
so far as they have a bearing npon the one
i great question of Relhf. Until within the
last few weeks their feeling bas been nearly
akin to despair. The most sanguine among
j them could discern nothing to cheer them
in the prospect. But M ay-day came, preg?
nant with joy and hope-Cincinnati spoke,
and the spirits of the community were lifted
np. All felt that the turning in the dark
and weary lane, in which we have so long
been plodding, was reached at last. All re?
cognized in Mr. Greeley an able, honest
and warm-hearted standard bearer, and the
man of ail others to give us peace, prosperi?
ty and a real rennion. Let bot the gleam
of hope, held out to ns in his nomination, be
fulfilled by. his triumphant election, and
South Carolioa, in common with the whole
Sooth, will awake to a new and brighter life.
With an honest National Administration at
Washington, corruption could not loo?
thrive in Columbia, and the people of our
State, confident in her wonderful resources,
and in their own invigorated energies, could
well afford to bear even the appalling
financial bardens which the greed, dishon?
esty and extravagance of the carpet-baggers
and scalawags have fastened upon misgov?
erned South Carolina.
Urform - How to Get II!
State Senator Smalls and Representative
Bowen opened the political campaign in
Beaufort last week. They declared that
the members of the Radical State Govern?
ment are responsible for the rampant fraud
i and mismanagement, and insisted that the
honest people would thrash ont the thieves
in the fall election. The speakers are Re
I publicans, and know what they are talking
! about; but the people are tired of the rheto?
ric of the stump-speaker, and wonld like to
see the men who confess and condemn the
iitscality of South Carolina Republicanism
go to work in earnest to secare practical re?
form. This can bo accomplished by flatly
refusing to support any candidate whose
public record is tainted with snspiclon. The
conservative citizens of the State are willing
to join hands with the true Republicans for
the purpose of electing a Governor who will
not lie, a Legislature which will not accept
bribes, and bureau officers who will not
steal. But the office-holders control the
regular conventions; and if Republicans like
Bowen, Whipper and Smalls really want re?
form, ihey must obtain it throngh the me?
dium of independent nominations. The
Scoti-MoBes crew will vow that this is ruin?
ons to "the party;" but as only Repnbli
I cans will be in nomination "the party" will
not be in danger, unless, indeed, the choosing
of notorious rogues and demagogues is abso^
lutely necessary to its existence.
The Question of Race.
At the Beaufort Radical meeting, Con?
gressman DeLarge took occasion to say that j
the white mun was "mighty uncertain," and
that the colored people should stick to their
own race in the selection of officers. This
is not the strain in which DeLarge indulged
when ho was courting the votes of the
Charleston Conservatives in 1870. It is
charilablfi to suppose that his opinions of
the "white mau" were formed amongst the j
Radical Congressmen in Washington and
the Radical officials in Columbia; but his
audience understood bis meaning, which is
that DeLarge will make a much better Con?
gressman than Rowen.
Representative J. B. Dennis is virtuously
indignant that a proposition should have
been made for an extra session of the Legis
ture, the real object of which is, he says, to
squeeze more bribes out of persons, who are
supposed to have beon benefited by tho
legislation of lost session. In his opinion,
no possible good can bc accomplished by
getting that "legislative crowd" together
again, and in this we agree with bim ; but J
why did not Mr. Dennis reach this conclu
sion.before? As a member of '.he Legisla?
ture, be had a full opportunity of enforcing
economy, so as "to improve tho finances" in
earnest, but when plain dealing might have
been useful, he was only known ia connec?
tion with white-washing reports, and with
furniture bills so enormous that even Gover?
nor Scott could not stand them. Whenever ]
Mr. Dean is preaches reform, the rotund
ghost of bis costly cuspadors, and tho spec?
tres of gorgeous carpets and elaborate cur?
tains, rise up in judgment against bim. That
upholstery bnsiness cost more than a legis?
lative 8es3ton would do; and tbc spoils were
divided amongst the few, instead of the many.
However, the swindling extra session scheme j
is dead as a door nail, all the same.

lon: Holmes's BookhouBe.
Mr. Fontaine began his Investigations with
the determination to make a faithful effort to
find the truth, and although we cannot al?
ways agree with him In his conclusions, we
bear willing testimony to the candor with
which he states the views of his opponents
and the clearness and force with which he j
reasons upon thom. The author has studied
the origin of the different races ol mankind
for thirty years, and he thinks that the vexed
question of their antiquity and of the unity ot
creation ls satisfactorily settled. Mr. Fontaine
is convinced that all men are the descendants
of one original created pair; in Lins, differing
! from Murchison, Darwin, Agassiz and others.
Doubtless this will command the work to
colleges and schools; the more especially as j
he does not atieront 'nie propositions |
or mose who hold other opinions. Tn Iiis
