Before Grant was even nominated, a conn
try papor in Virginia came out with the
startling announcement, "For Emperor
"Ulysses Grant." The article was a good
deal copied and commented on, but it was
hard to tell from ita tone whether the edi?
tor was in earnest or not. After Grant's
election, a really earnest effort was made in
behalf of imperialism. "The Imperialist,"
started in New York, and conducted with
ability, lived bnt a short time, and with it
died apparently all serious thoughts of a
thorough change in our form of govern?
But, of late, tue subject bas revived.
Gram's candidacy for a second term has set
many long heads to work. Governor Short?
er, o? Alabama, puts the pertinent ques?
tion, "Shall it be Caesar or Cinclnnatus ?"
To which Wendell Phillips replies, "Long
"live Ulyeses S. Grant ! May he continue
"to be President of the United States until
"every white man over forty years of age,
"who lives South of Mason and Dixon's line,
"bas been put forever into the ground."
And bis Massachusetts auditors applauded
loudly and long.
Mr. nunter, In his carefully-weighed ad?
dress, tells the New Yorkers that there is
more danger of the Empire than they sup?
pose. Much is to be said on both sides, and
he is not prepared to say that be who hearti?
ly prefers a Monarchy or an Empire to a
Republic is either a knave or a fool. When
a statesman of Mr. Hunter's reputation for
sense and discretion says this openly, it is
time for the mass of the people to put on
their Considering Caps.
The Virginia editor to whom we have
alluded may have been in earnest, in jump?
ing to a conclusion which many Bbared with
bim after the downfall ot the Confederacy.
On the other band, his purpose may bave
beena subtle one to defeat Grant. Had tbe
Southern press followed his ene and come
out wltb general unanimity in favor of Grant
as Emperor, one of two things would have
followed. Either the North, taking alarm,
would have rejected Grant, or else, accept?
ing the Southern view of imperialism as an
inevitable result of the war, they would
have vested him with that power, truly im?
perial, which is now lodged in the "National
L?gislature." Ia that event, recognizing bis
Indebtedness to tbe first promulgators and
advocates of imperialism, Grant wonld have
bestowed the lion's share of honors upon

A Charleston Novel.
EBB-TIDE. A Novel. By Christian Reid. Au?
thor of Morton House. Valerie Aylmer,
Mabel Lee, Ac. With Illustrations by Alfred
Fredericks. New York: D. Appleton A Co.
The novels of Miss Frances Fi sher are widely
read, especially in the South; and yet she has
not received the meed of substantial praise
to which she ls entitled. Kind words have
not be?n wanting. Miss Fisher bas not, how?
ever, been accepted by her public as the first
of living writers of fiction in me Southern
suites. This ls tbe position she now bolds,
and that lt is not everywhere confessed is due
far more to indolence than to any ignorance
other merit. There Is an Impression abroad
that the woman of genius can make her way,
in spite ol the "critical calm" of those for
whom she labors. This Is true, and Mles
Fisher cannot be put down. Nevertheless we
owe it to a Southern woman whose kinsmen
poured out their blood for the South-who
loves her country devotedly, without cherish?
ing a bitter thought, or uttering a harsh
word, against the victorious North-that we
should cheer her and praise her, not only be
! cause ol her own great gilts, but also because
of the honor which she wins for a people
whom lt is the fashion to decry.
We do not desire to be understood as saying
that Miss Fisher approaches tbe front rank of
European novelists. Upon previous occasions
we have pointed out ber faults ot construc?
tion and style. These remain; but In the ex?
quisite purity of her works, in her glowing
descriptions of scenery, in ber crisp and spark?
ling dialogue, In the nobility of ali her aims,
we find ample room for eulogy, and abundant
reason for speaking ot ber as highly as we do.
Miss Fisher's writings are rich In whatever
Nature could bestow. Their short-comings
arise from a want of that bard experience or
life which growB out of a wide acquaintance
with men and things. The remaining blem?
ishes will steadily grow less, and might have
entirely disappeared ere now had not the
cruel necessity of bread-winning precluded
the Biudy and elaboration needed for
complete success. What we mean we
cannot better explain tuan in the language
of Miss Fisher herself. In the novel before
us, this description ls given of a sea-piece
painted by the heroine: "A stranger could
"scarcely have believed that this beautiful
"conception was from the hands of a girl of
"twenty, whose art-training had been of that
-entirely amateur kind which ls bestowed
"upon young ladies who have a weakness for
"spoiling canvas and wasting paint. There
"was nob? of the weak prettiness which
"usually damns even the beat of such efforts;
"the very faults 'o? the piece were faults of
"power, and there was a dramatic intensity
"about the whole scene which proved-more
"conclusively even than the wonderful color?
ing-tho God-given power ot the born ar
"tisi." This la what we feel in reading the
novela of Misa Fisher.
Most of the characters In Ebb-Tide are resi?
dents ot Charleston, where the opening Bcenes
are laid. We give the picture of a May-day
morning on the Battery:
Ten o'clock, on a glorious May day, with the
freshly-risen sea-breeze sweeping over the
sparkling waters ol Charleston Harbor; the
bright sun gilding all things with a flood of
golden glory; the while shipping dazzling ihe
?yes like snow; the wooded Bhorea clothed
ina royal gaiment of solt purple mist; the
stalely city throned like a queen between her
"swiftly-flowing" rivers, while the surf or the
great Atlantic beats like music at her feet; a
fragrance ol roses pervadins the air, and an
abounding sense ox glory and vitality In the
buoyant atmosphere ! Nature has opened all
her choicest stores on this marvellously lovely
day, this 15th of May, 185-; lhere is not a tint
kDown to art which she Is not wearing, and
many-how many ?-for which art has neither
name nor power to reproduce. Out on the
sea there is an opalescent glory, changing
and shuting with every gleam ot light that
catches the foam-crested waves as they rise
and chase each other like merry children in
the sunshine ! The land seems panting under
il s wealth of loveliness, of fragrance and or
bloom ! Everywhere ls spread earth's match?
less livery of green and gold; every breath of
air is flower-scented; every sound-even toe
city's distant hum ol pleasure and traffic-Is
subordinate to the divine anthem which the
mvrlad voices of nature are chanting-the
sweet invitation which they give to the cb 1
dren of men. "Come !" say the waves In
their soft tones of ceaseless, rhythmic music.
"Come !" echo tbe happy songs of birds, the
merry chirp of the great, invisible insect
world. "Come !" whisper the breezes solter
lhaa those ot Araby the Blest. "Come !"
murmur the trees, gently swaying their emer?
ald leaves, and flinging graceful shadows over
the velvet turf-"come and be happy !" And
how few answer !-how lew do not go on their
way, be it to funeral or to reast, with blinded
eyes and deafened ears ! Yet, lo those who
love her as Bhe should be loved, ls not Nature
God's ambassador upon earth, speak I og, in
every quiver of her wondrous Hebt and shade,
"glad tidings of great Joy ?" O rare, sweet
?magna maier ! In all this weary. slB-laden,
Buflerlng-sieeped world, there is nothing like
to thee; there ls no Joy like thy Joy, no beauty
like thy beauty, no glory like thy glory; thou
who art still as lair and young and ires h as
when thy first dew-drops glittered in the sun?
light ol the creation morning, and even thy
gracious Maker owned that thou wert "good !"
And who would see this noble mistress in her
most royal mood, wbo would worship at her
most royal shrine, must seek her where she
loves best to dwell-under the deep-blue
Southern sky, by the purple Southern waters,
tar in tbe gorgeous depths and dim receses
of the aromatic Southern woods ! Nowhere
else does she bold out ber arms with such
a tender embrace; nowhere else does che woo
IIB with such regal charms; nowhere else
does she wear such robes of state as clothe
her amid the glory and beauty of these en?
Yet a girl who stands on the pleasant Bat?
tery, leanlug against the railing, and looking
with wistful eyes lar adown the bright bay lo
Ute broad ocean beyond, seems wholly uncon?
scious of all the witchery 'round her. .She has
lilted her hat forward so os to keep the Bun
out of her eyes, and there Bhe leans, a motion?
less, absorbed figure, heeding the cut loua
glances of the lew loiterers who come und go
us little as the boundless gloiy ol' earth, and
sea, and sky. A vessel ls jost crossing the
bar Into the harbor; the day is so wonderfully
olear that, through
"The pnrple noon's transparent light,"
lt ls possible to catch a glimpse of the spars
and rigging outlined against the sky-no hor?
rible, ugly steamer, belching lorlh black
smoke, but a graceful sailing-vessel, with slen?
der masts and snow-white canvas, outspread
like an angel's wings. The girl lifts an opera
glass to her eyes, and gazes eagerly-oh, BO
eagerly 1-toward the new-comer, the strang?
er, perhaps, tbe friend lt may be. Two or J
three nurses, accompanied by children, pass,
and, stoppln?, gaze also, open-mouthed, at
the cloud of canvas lar away. Tney can find
nothing remarkable about lt, however; BO,
after a lime, they continue their promenade.
Other nurses follow, other children scamper
g?8feesee MWl??VWSS^? then
1 uutuo iwo mates, (veneu so os to effectually
shut out all possibility of enjoying the day;)
then an old gentleman, walking leisurely with
bis hands bebind hi? back; then a young gen?
tleman on horseback, who looka keenly at the
graceful, motionless figure with the opera
glass levelled (apparently) at Fort Sumter;
men a tall, handsome girl, who, ascending
the steps, walks directly up to the figure Iii
question and touches Its arm.
Io Borne respects, Ebb-Tide ls the best of ?
Miss Fisher's novels. The heroine ls a win?
some thing wbo steals the reader's heart away; J
who suffers and ls strong. Tbe hero ls very
much like other heroes, but the type ls one that
.11 of us admire. Madelon Lau tree is a care?
fully drawn character, attractive even in her
moral deformity. The villain of the story is a j
I smooth-spoken rascal who, as In real life,
escapes the punishment he deserves. MIBB
Fisher also gives us a capital specimen ol the
match-making mamma, and the spoiled blonde
beauty. Tbe draw-back: ls that all the young
women are exquisitely lovely, and all the men
strikingly handsome. This, unfortunately for
the world, ls not true to nature. We should
prefer to meet with a sprinkling of ugliness,
if only lor the sake of contrast. There IP,
besides, so much ilch coloring that lt threat-]
ens to cloy. An occasional stretch of cold,
vigorous writing would give greater effect to
the rich descriptions of Southern and tropical
scenery. In saying tbis, we have finished our
fault-finding. The conversations are spark?
ling, and there is, here and lhere, a flash ol
unexpected wit. Ebb-Tide is an lndesorlba
bly touching story. In the English tongue,
there ls no loftier sentiment or truer pathos
than ia lound in the scene which closes the
evenliul history. The plot we retrain from
Miss Fisher is making progress. Let her I
remain where she Is, and she is still without a
rival In America. Let her advance for len
years, BB she advances now, and she will be
DO unworthy rival of the queens ot English
In the same volume with Ebb-Tide are three
short sketches, lively and spirited, but ol the
kind known to artists as "pot-boilers." No
words of ours are needed, we are confident,
to insure for Miss Fisher's tatest novel the
support and favor of the public.
