^ -Bismarck has refused Hie request of
several North German Governments to issue
an order prohibiting the sales of certain Ger?
man-American newspapers in the German
Empire, saying "that would only Increase
their circulation In this country tenfold."
-The defeat of France by Germany was not
such a bad thing for.the former nat?o i after
all, if one of the results ls to be, as now ap?
pears probable, the genet al education ol the
youth of both sexes m that country, where
heretofore, In the rural districts, the number
of educated persons was astonishingly small,
and a man, other than the curate and doctor,
who could read, write and cypher, was a phe?
nomenal being In some hamlets.
-The grandest marriage which has, oe. J
curred In London for many yetta was that of I
Miss Fox, the adopted daughte r of Lady Hoi-1
land, who was joined to the Prince Aloys
Liechtenstein recently. It was almost as
' brilliant as a royal wedding, and quite threw
the Marquis of Bute's marriage In the shade.

you of that cold, freezing smile which his
father, the ex-Emperor, would put on when I

-The far West ls becoming populated with j
a rapidity that is truly marvellous. The ad
vantages offered to settlers upon railroad j
grants; the liberal terms upon which govern
ment lands can be acquired; the fertility of a
virgin soil; the fixed belief in a steady west-1
ward march of population; the certainty that
the best wheat producing area of the United
States has already crossed the Mississippi, and
the unvarying tendency of American emigra- i
tlon to keep a considerable distance ahead of
civilization, have? all tended, and are still I
tending, to affect such a settlement. The rail?
roads are now forming great arteries, with In
numerable branching veins, through all this
region. There will be before many years pass I
away no fertile valley from Omaha to Califor?
nia, and from the Yellowstone River to the
Rio Grande, that will not support its little
community, or cluster of communities, of pio?
neers; and the gap ot comparatively unknown
country betweln the Eastern and Pacific I
States will be no longer In existence.
-At one of the Parisian concei t saloons is a
Chinese walter, who dresses in tue European
fashion, wearing his pigtail colled round bis
head. He speaks French tolerably well and
excites much curiosity on account of his
Btrange history. He was formerly in the ser?
vice of the Empress o? China, who had con?
fided to him the charge of a certain fan. repre?
senting the Imperial dragon, worked In green
upon a yellow field. This fan was a sacred
affair, and descended from the late Emperor,
and the Empress Intended to deliver lt to her
son upon the day of his marriage. Unhappily,
Tsang one day broke the ian, and was con
dem ned, in consequence, to decapitation.
Being a person of Ingenuity, however, Tsang
managed to extricate himself from his di- j
lemma by seizing the throat of his Intended
executioner,before that functionary had drawn I
hiB sword, and thus strangled him. As there
was no witness to this affair, he dressed him?
self in the extinct executioner's attire, escaped
without suspicion, and embarked upon a
French steamer which was about leaving port.
-A French correspondent gives an inside
view of the princely , and at the same time
homely bazaar Bystem ol France, which, since
the resurrection of trade, from ita temporary j
prostration after the war, has become more I
complete than ever. As a specimen, and one
of the best of them, the Magasin Bon Marche, I
in Paris, ls selected, which does a LuBiness of j
about six million dollars in gross receipts a j
year. Though nominally one and under the
same proprietorship, the establishment ia
divided Into twenty-two shops, each of which
is entirely Independent of ihe others. The
braiding covers four thousand square yards,
and ls five stories high. Less than twenty j
years agc a small draper's shop stood upon the
site, and from that thlB has sprung. The ar
rangement for the comfort ot employees is
remarkable. About ninety girls are connected
with the trade, who are required for strict sur?
veillance to lodge on the premises. Large,
well ventilated and well furnished bed-rooms
are provided for them, and an elegant draw?
ing-room, with piano, pictures, games, and all
that luxurious comfort requires, is common
property. A dining-room for the whole seven
or eight Hundred employees is attached, with
excellent tare, and hair-dressing and billiard
rooms are connected with lt. The salaries
allowed these clerks are small, but they are J
allowed a percentage on all they sell, and per- j
sons! attractions In that case counting for so
much, the young ladies may be supposed to
have an advantage over their male compet?- J
-The numerous Juggling tricks with mol?
ten iron are, on the authority ol the Engineer- j
lng and Mining Journal, not so difficult or I
wonderful af 1er all. The necessary immunity
is secured by simply keeping cool, not physi?
cally, but mentally. The hand is to be Im?
mersed confidently, aiul then quickly and qui?
etly withdrawn, and a pleasant sensation ol
cold will be felt. On? learned French proles
sor attributes Hie miracle of the llery furnace
to a knowledge of the more obscure laws of
calorics, which ls only another instance of the
notorlons fad that some French scientists
will believe anything as narrated-Old Wives'
Fables, Mother Goose's Stories, Gulliver's
Travels-provided lt is not recorded In
the Bible. There are many curious Inci?
dents given by the Journal of the handling of
fluid metal. Professor Rose stated that thirty
years ago, during a visit in a metallurgical
establishment iu Avestad, Sweden, he Baw a
workman who, for a small remuneration,
threw molten copper against a wall, which he
skimmed on" from a crucible with his hand.
Dumas called attention to a very old usage,
ordinarily performed in glass-works. A mol?
ten mass of glass ls poured into a vessel filled
with water, In which, although glowing, ?tie
kneaded with both hands. Professor Boutigl
ny produced ?celo a while glowing furnace,
and claimed to have bathed himself In fluid
Iron. It will be remembered, also, that about
a year ago Maryland had wltln Its borders a
colored blacksmith who did many extraordi?
nary things with red hot iron.
Read the Newspapers
Colonel D. Wyatt Aiken delivered an
agricultural address in Winnsboro', on the
4th of July, in which he told his audience
some home truths about the causes of the
poverty of the agriculturists of the Stata
Amongst other things, as reported by the
Winnsboro' Netes, he said:
"About the beglnulng of the present year,
he was commissioned by the State Agricultu?
ral Society to canvass the State In the interesls
of the society, and of agriculture generally,
but as yet had received little or no encourage?
ment In his labors, although he had been
travelling four months, and had visited nine
count ?es In the State. There seemed to be a
feeling of unrest and disquiet wherever he had
been, which operated very strongly against
any Improvement in the general character of
the country, and the universal cry appeared
to be poverty. The question naturally arises,
why are our people BO poor. There are cer?
tainly assignable reasons for it, and amongst
these might be first mentioned Ignorance or
lack of intelligence among the laboring classes.
The benefits and advantages of a liberal
education are not properly appreciated by the
viasses. His experience and observation was
that (litre roas more ignorance generally in
South Carolina than in any other State he had
travelled through. He knew of farmers In Ibis
county, running four or five ploughs, ic ho
don't knoio the name of the county newspaper,
or the fact of there being a paper published in
the county. In his efforts to secure subscrip?
tions for agricultural papers, the Invariable
reply was, 'I am no book farmer,' when the
truth of the whole matter is that the man who
doesn't study agriculture as a science is a
veritable 'old fogy.' Many persons read agri?
cultural works, but not with a view to ?the
benefit to be derived from them, and the great
difficulty in the way of agriculture succeeding
under our present system ls that our people
don't think of it, don't study lt, don't read
about it as a science, and can't bring them?
selves to realize that lt is a science, bntll
they awake to shah reality, they will always
be poor, and can never make farming a suc?
cessful and remunerative calling."
These remarks do not apply wkh full
force to the low-country, but we believe
them to be trna as a general proposition.
IHipra ic mn <*<<?t>?' that)', txa rompureu With
the rest of the Union, the number of .-s
paper readers in South (parolina is lamenta?
bly small. The population of the State- is
705,000, and there are six daily newspapers,
three in Charleston and three in Colombia.
It is not the mere number of the news?
papers, however, that we object to. A
paper like THE NEWS can just as well supply
twenty thonsand copies u day as ten thou?
sand. The truth is, that the people do not
read, as they should, the newspapers which
are published. This is the cause of infinite
loss to tho Slate. Tho newspaper is the in?
structor of the day; it is more potent than
pedagogue or professor. Unless he read a
live newspaper no citizen can properly dis?
charge his duties towards his family and to?
wards the State. A wise man wonld as
soon shot out the light of day as deprive
himself of his newspaper. The delays and
difficulties of the mails have doubtless much
to do with the slow spread of newspaper in?
fluence; the small means of the whites and
the ignorance of the blacks must also be
taken into account But much more could
be done than is doue; and we advise every
citizen af the State, who knows by experi?
ence what is the value of a newspaper in
quickening the faculties and ripening the
brain, to set to work at once and persuade
his neighbor to subscribe to one of the ex?
cellent papers published in this State. When
men read newspapers freely, they rise above
personal and class dictation and think and
act for themselves. The frauds of the Ring
would have been impossible If the blacks
had conned the colums of the press; the po?
litical and industrial progress of the State
would have been ten-fold what it is if every
white adult regularly read a bright, liberal

The Highways and Bridges Tax.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
In referring In your Issue, of this day, to a
correspondent of the Columbia Carolinian,
who Informed that paper that a tax of eighteen
cents on the hundred dollars for roads is in
course of collection In Lancaster County, you
say, "Such a tax, for repairing highways and
bridges, is expressly authorized by the act of
March 9,1871, the tax being payable In money
or labor at the option ol the taxpayer." So it
la; but you overlook the fact that that portion
of the act of 1871 has been repealed hythe act.
of March 13th, 1872.
The portion or the act of 1871, which author?
izes the road tax, ls coulalued in Section 2,
and ia in these words :
"That, for the purpose ol keeping in repair
highways and bridges, the county commission?
ers of each county shall, on or previous to the
1st day of January, assess a tax ol eighteen
cents, if so much be necessary, ou every hun?
dred dollars ot the lists of the county, to be
paid In money or labor, at the option of the
taxpayer, and laid out in repairing highways
and bridges; and they shall, annually, on or
belore the said 1st day of January, make out a
tax bill for each surveyor of highways, con?
taining the amount ol the tax to be laid out by
him lu his district, with the amount of each
person's tax annexed to his name, accompa?
nied by a warrant, signed by the chairman of
the board, authorizing such surveyor to collect
such lax; and they shall deliver' the several
tax bills to the respective surveyors and take
their receipts for the same."
Now the act of 1872, in its first section, pro?
vides "that section 2 .ol said act (the act o?
1871 above quoted) be so amended as to read :
'That the bridges be repaired under the super?
vision ft the county commissioners, and that |
the expense of the same be paid out of any
moneys in the county treasury; and that all
the work on said bridges given out by the
county commissioners, when the amount shall
exceed the sum of one hundred dollars, shall
be done by contract, and the commissioners
are hereby required to advertise the same In
at least one of the papers of the county; that
said proposal shall, In all cases, be accompa- ?
cied by two or more sufficient sureties, and
the county commissioners shall have the right
to reject any or all bids If In their Judgment
the Interest of the county so require.' "
And section 3 provides : "All acts or pa?tsoi'
acls Inconsistent with this act are hereby re?
Now, can section 2 ol the act of 1871 still be
the law now In force lu connection with the
act of 1872, as above quoted ? It will be ob?
Ben ?d that the act of 1872 does not say that
'The act of 1871 shall have the iollcwing lan?
guage added to section 2,'' but ItEays that
"Section 2 sliall be so amended as to read as
\ folloios." And then In connection with this
the third section provides that all parts of acts
inconsistent are repealed. The original sec?
tion 2 ls unquestionably Inconsistent with the
amended section 2, and hence the former ls
repealed. And there ls, therefore, no authority
to levy, or if levied, no authority to collect, a
road tax. A SUBSCRIBER.
Klngstree, 8. C., July 22,1872.
[Our correspondent apparently overlooks
the fact that the Act of March, 1872, in
abolishing the office of Highway Surveyors,
confers the duties of the same upon the j
County Commissioners. One of the duties
Of the Highway Surveyors was to assess a |
tax of eighteen cents on every hundred dol?
lars, for the purpose of keeping in repair the
highways and bridges. This assessment
must now be made by the County Commis?
sioners. That such a tax is still expected to
be levied and paid is evident from the pro?
viso to the Act of 1872, which reads: "Pro
"vided, further, that all taxes levied for
"ike repair of high ways and bridges in each
'county shall be collected and paid, at the
'same time as the general taxes, to the
"County Treasurers." The public have now
before them both sides of the question, and
can judge for themselves, utitil there is an
authoritative decision updo, the subject.]

been the sufferers to believe lt, but still there
may be some good men among tl: jarpet

"the right hand of fellowship'7 and assist In
the good work of rescuing our State from Hie
official robberies she has suffered. Let the
