THE CHARLESTON DAILY NEWS "ls designa
-ted as the newspaper for tbe publication of
.?all legal notices, and official advertisements,
"for the County of Charleston, under the act
"of February 22d, 1870, entitled an act to regu?
late the publication of all legal and publio
" "notices." ?
NEWS OE TSE DAT.
-Madame Nllsson-Bouzeaud has received a
diamond cross from the Czar.
-On the first day of January the commer?
cial osage of three days' grace on notes, ?c.,
will be abolished In California. After tbat
date paper must be paid the day it ls due, or
go to protest.
-It is said that a resolution will be intro?
duced In the House of Representatives, by
the committee on banking and currency, to
secure an Investigation Into the affairs of the
Freedman's Savings Bank.
. -So severe a galetes that which has Just vis
I ted the north of England bas not been known
for years. We read ot people being blown
down lu tbe streets, and objects like Iron lamp
postr prostrated by the storm. Of course
where such unusual tokens ot a terrible oom
motion as these are reported, we must expect
to hear of disasters at sea as well as on land.
-Harvard College, whloh ls to make good
the loss of a quarter of a million destroyed by
the Boston -fire, has received $115,000, the
offleera' and professors contributing with lib?
erality. At a meeting of New York graduates
on Saturday a committee was appointed to
raise the $100,000 or more still needed to make
good the whole amount of the losses.
-Mr. Samuel N. Pike, who died suddenly In
New. York, on Saturday last, was the founder
of the great opera house in Cincinnati, at a
cost of $1,000,000, and which was destroyed
by fire. He afterwards built In 1866 the opera
house in New York, corner of Eighth avenue
and Twenty-third street, which he disposed of
to James Fisk, In 1868. HA leaves a family of
three daughters .and one son. His property of
several millions has been willed, it is said, to
-? new advertising dodge bas Jost been In?
vented in Paris. Of late a large number of
bank billa have been Been In circulation with
slips o? paper pasted upon the back. At first
lt was supposed that tbe bill had been torn
sod mended, but as the same thing was seen | ?
on hew bills, amore careful examination was
mad?. It waa found that an enterprising
tradesman had pasted his advertisements
upon the back of the currency of the realm,
and had taken this novel way ol .getting his
bnslness cards into circulation. A complaint
'Inn been made to the government, and the
quem?n of right will be decided in the French
-It ls stated in a Washington dispatch that
the society for the prevention of cruelty to
animals, of Boston, has raised $10,000, wltb
which they expect to lobby through Congress
the bill known as the "Bill to prevent cruelty
to animals while In transit by railroad or
other means oi transportation." This bili will
be reported by tbe House committee on agri?
culture when It ls called. .It provides tbat lt
Shall be unlawful to keep confined cattle on a
train or boat more than twenty-five con
'seeu?ve hours without giving them a rest of
? eli hours for food and water. When the bill
.comes up for consideration, or the day pre?
vious; the society for the prevention ol
. cruelty tofrnlmt Js, of Washington City, Intend
to hold a largo mass meeting, at which Be?gh,
.of New York, and others will make speeches
to affect favorably the legislation on the bill.
-The co mer In oil whloh started in Penn
Bvlvanhrover a month ago, though having ap?
parently exhausted itself, ls nevertheless
more to be feared than ever. The suspension
; or coal oil production for thirty days from the 11
then completed wells was found to relieve the
immediate depression among the producers,
. but to be Insufficient for the reduction ol the
large surplus stock on hand, or useful for per- ? t
manant relief. The project now ls to estab-1
llsh under a Pennsylvania charter a Petro
leum Producers' Agenoy, with a capital stock
of $1,000,000, which seems disposed to plant
itself on a baals ol absolute authority |1
over the entire petroleum Interests. Pro?
ducers are to sell their oil to the agency
for a certain uniform price, less the com?
mission which the latter will demand from
the buyers. The agency will provide storage
.f-for oil on sale and for surplus oil In store; fix 11
' the price at $5 a barrel, regulate the measure
ol sale, determine at what time the produe
tion shall be restrained, and take such meas?
ures as may be neccessary and lawful to pre?
vent the drilling of oil wells. They reserve
the right also of taking the refining into their
own hands, which would make the monoDiy as ".
complete as ia possible under human devising, t
The small producers who make Just enough to
Uve on, but In the aggregate constitute a
large class, would suffer, ir not be swallowed
up, by this combination of producers on a
grander scale; while the refiners and consuni-11
ere as well would be at their mercy. Of mer?
chants aud bankers, only those who have
been carrying for-montbs heavy loads of nn
negotlafcle oil paper see anything In the
scheme to commend.
-The reduction of rates by the richest and
most powerful life Insurance company Ia the
country-the Mutual ot New York-has arous?
ed a storm of controversy, involving the prin?
ciples on which the system of life insurance
is based, and the policy and management or
the various companies, which will have at
least oue good effect, aud that ls the enlight?
enment ot policy-holders as to matters In
whloh they are vitally luterested. If lt like?
wise tends to Improve aud purify the manage?
ment of the Immense Institutions whloh life
Insurance has built up, the discussion will not
bave been In vain. The Mutual Company
3laim8 that It 1B enabled to reduce Its
rates because of greater eoonomy of manage?
ment and greater caution in examination of
ippllcants for Insurance than its rivals. On the
other side lt is argued that, granting this to
De BO, the reduction will make an unfair dis?
crimination in lavor of the new class of Insur?
ers against the old policy-holders; that, be?
sides, the directors have no right to hazard
the large assets accumulated, which are the
property ol the policy-holders and not ol their
managers; that the surplus which lt ls intend?
ed to reduce secures the safety which Insur?
ers desire, and whloh led many of them to in?
vest their mea DB in this company; and that
even lt this were not so, the reduction will
bring ruin to many younger and poorer
companies which cannot afford the
reduction. The directors of the Mutual
allege that the opposition to their new
scheme does not come so znuoh from
their policy-holders as from the rival com?
panies; that they are satisfied by calculation
that they oan afford the reduction, and that
the older policy-holders are not discriminated
against, as they will receive dividends In pro?
portion to their payments. Petitions are
being signed, however, by many of the policy?
holders of the Mutual in this au ? other cities
against the reduction, and unless the direc?
tors recede, which lt Is now thought they will
do, lt ls likely that the Legislature ?i New
York will be called upon to take some action
lo the premises. The New York papers most?
ly oppose the reduction, bot mainly on the
ground that, warranted or not, it will bring
disaster and ruin upon the weaker companies,
and thus seriously disturb the business and
financial prosperity of the city.
The Chester Fir?.
When the sad tidings of the destructive
fire in Chester were received in Charleston
on Sunday morning the first thought was
for those whom the swift marching flames
might have rendered homeless and desti?
tute. We were confident that the people of
Charleston would help their suffering breth?
ren to the lull extent of their means ; bot it
would have been nowise to make an appeal
to the public without good reason. A
telegram, therefore, was dispatched at once
to the Intendant of Chester, inquiring whether
any of his people, by reason of the fire,
were in need of assistance in money or pro?
visions. The following reply was received
yesterday morning :
CHESTER, 8. C., December 15, 1872.
Messrs. Riordan, Dawson db Co., Charleston,
8. a :
The loss ls sustained by merchants; None
require assistance. The lowest estimate of
damages ls $160,000. Insurance $60,000.
GEO. W. MELTON, Intendant
This ia gratifying intelligence. A terrible
loss baa befallen Chester, but at least there
are no starving men and women pleadings In
the panic, for bread and a roof to shelter
them. The good people of Cheater will not
be dismayed. They are made of stuff which
Joes not melt in the furnace, of affliction.
The disaster of Sunday will be overcome in
time, and ali the sooner if the insurance
companies pay np promptly, and those to
whom money is dne practice a generous
forbearance. And this prompts the thought
.hat none bat a madman would, in these
Jays, take any step which makes insar
ince dearer or less secure. Far from
throwing difficnltlea in the way ot Insurance
corporations, it should be the aim of the
Legislature to encourage first-class compa?
nies to maintain agencies in this State.
The bill before the Legislature, doubling the
deposit required of insurance companies,
will, if passed, canse most of the agencies to
be withdrawn, and those which remain will
increase their price. With the fires in Ab?
beville and Chester and Cheraw before them
the Legislature cannot, if they have any re?
gard for the pnblio welfare, take any step
which will prevent the people from insuring
their property in responsible companies at
i fair rate of premium. The insurance on
Che property destroyed in .Chester is sixty
thousand dollars. That insurance fond,
although less than half the total loss,'will
enable the burned-out merchants to get on
their legs and go to work. Without that,
most of them would be hopelessly ruined.
We trust that the origin of the Chester
fire will be investigated, and that, in rebuild?
ing the bnrnt houses, care will be taken to
avoid any modes of structure which may
have been fonnd especially dangerous. No
town can be made fire-proof; bot care in
building, and an efficient fire department,
often confine to a small area a fire which,
under other circumstances, would lay a
A Live Newspaper*
There are very few newspaper offices in
fte cou ntry which, in completeness of equip?
ment, are equal to that of the Savannah
yews; a paper in every way np to the times,
?nd a worthy exponent of the vigor and
thrift of the bustling city in which lt Is pub?
The proprietor, Mr. J. H. Estlil, is a
"working man," who takes a jost pride In
.he establishment he has b ul Idea up. Writing
.he addresses upon newspapers was too slow
i process; he obtained a malling machine
which can address five thousand an hour.
Folding papers by hand was not quick
enough; he has pnt in operation a new ma
?hine which folds, and presses, three thous?
and an hour. A simple newspaper was not
?nongh to keep Mr. EBtill employed; so he
tdded to his establishment a job office and
Jindery, capable of executing the heaviest
arork with economy and dispatch. The out
ilde public know little of these things. They
iee the resalta, and care nothing for the pro?
seases by which the resolta are reached. Bat
?ewspaper men who have examined the
Savannah News office find it to be every
hing that we have said.
The Savannah News is a staunch Demo
?ratic paper, and rendered the State good
lervice in the Liberal canvass. Mr. Estill,
limsoir, is a prompt, trustworthy man, who
will fill honorably, and usefully, any public
position to which he may be chosen.
So We Go:
The Columbia Union says that "United
"States Marshal Wallace has removed Dep?
uty United States Marshal H. W. Hen
.dricks." This was doubtless done at the
nstanceof "Honest" John Patterson, who
fas arrested by Marshal Hendricks upon a
?barge of bribery. Besides this, an ^oedl
mt Senate promptly refused to confirm the
lomlnation of TrialJustlce Kirk, who issued
he warrant for Patterson's arrest. Sb two
molle officers are punished for doing their
Silk Culture lu South'Carolina.
A reporter for the Savannah Republican
has had a long talk with a Beaufort planter,
who expects to go North soon for the pur?
pose of making arrangements for the estab?
lishment of a silk-worm nursery at Beau?
fort. The reporter says :
"He appears to have given the subject the
closest attention, and brought to our notice
several very Interesting points in the report
of the Agricultural Department published last
year. The cocoons which he showed us, and
which were grown near Beaufort, were cer?
tainly very beautiful, and were stated by him
to be as floe ag any ever grown In the United
States. He carries them on with handsome
letters of introduction and recommendation
to silk manufacturers at the North, and cer?
tainly, upon consideration of the facts be?
fore us, we cannot but say that he must suc?
ceed in making arrangements satisfactory
"The breeding of the silk worm was in Col?
onial times quite an extensive business In
South Carolina. Its final abandonment, as
far as we can learn, was not on account of |
the want of profit, but the great difficulty ex?
isting at that time In transporting from the
old country a sufficient number of skilful
manipulators to take care of the plant and
the feeding of the worm In Its earlier stages.
At the present time theae are comparatively
easily found at the North and from the .West
In Eogland the matter has engaged'the par?
ticular attention of the government for the
past two years. Nurseries have been estab?
lished in various parts of the kingdom, and,
? Uh the encouragement of government, are
making large Importations of eggs and cocoons
from all parts of the world. In Mexico and in
various parts of the Northern States lt is a
business carried on with great profit to the
owners of nurseries.
"The experiment oi raising the silk worm
at Beaufort has been made with the most sat?
isfactory results. The cocoons produced are,
as we have stated, very beautiful to our un
educated eye, and the fact that efforts are
being made to establish a nursery at that place
proves that the parties making the experiment
are willing to risk a considerable amount o?
capital In lt. Should the doctor succeed In
his efforts, (and we Blncerly hope he will,) lt
must open In South Carolina a field ot great
profit for her people, and will probably do
away to a certain extent with the culture of |
cotton on the sea islands.''

that lt should be as fresh and entertaining to?

We vive below a brief extract from a report of
the Lehigh County Medical Society, as published
lo the Transact luna of the. Medical Society of
Pennsylvania, June, 1868:
"Internally, I give quinine and iron and a good
nourishing diet, still I found great trouble lu
keeping up healthy granulations; they would be?
come sluggish. I tried a number of alteratives,
as iodide of potassium und Urne. Still the case
progressed vaiy slowly, until my attention was
attracted to an article in the Medical and surgical
Reporter, -On Iodide andiron.' I at once ctn
eluded to give this remedy a fair trial. I discon?
tinued ali other constitutional treatment, and
gave three pills three times a day, manufactured
by W. R. Warner ? Co., of Philadelphia. I soon
had the satisfaction or seeing a rapid Improve?
ment. TbMMn at once left her limb, with whtoh
she had s offered continuai ly; the granulations
became more healthy and more abundant, and I
now have the satisfaction of seeing my patient
engaging in all her household duties. Not a ves?
tige of the disease ls to be-seen. Tho patient ls
enjoj lng perfect health, ls active and lively.
''Since, I have treated two other cases, one of
three and one of four years' standing, with the
same good result 1 feel convinced of the efficacy
of the remedy." P. L. REIOHARl), j
