church wedding in New York seated herself
on the back of a pew for better observation,
but seriously Interrupted the ceremony by an
Involuntary, somersault and attempt to stand
on her head In the pew Just behind.
-Owing to the activity o? the tobacco trade

only shnt down one or two days for the Christ?
mas holidays, in place ol for as many weeks,
aa heretofore. The manufacture rs have large
orders to HIL, which will justify them in keep?

-An unusual question bas been raised In
the little State of Delaware which ls never
likely to trou ble New York. Pr of essor West
effected an insurance on his Ufe policy for
twenty-five thousand dollars, and then mur?
dered a negro, and mutilated the body so
as to Induce the insurance companies to mis?
take lt for bis own and pay over the amount.
The question now arises, when West is haug
ed for the murder will the companies be com?
pelled to pay over the insurance to his family ? j
The point is emphatically a knotty one.
-The Manchester merchants are now agi?
tating the question of over-sislng of cotton
cloths, and its effects in defrauding purchasers
by leading them to bellevo that there is more
cotton in the cloth than there really ls. The
lomes sustained by mildew rn cotton goods
?hipped by water transportation are attribut?
ed to the custom ol fraudulent over-sWag. A
practical weaver suggests that merchants
have an effectual remedy in their own hands.
They should stipulate that their cloth should
not only be ot a certain weight, bat that lt
should have also * certain weight ol cotton In

or two pieces at random ont ot the whole lot, *
washing them, drying them, and then weigh?

lars. After lt ls divided each member wlU be
entitled to a fraction over seven cents. One j
gentleman who had three hundred and thirty

together, one may 'plainly see the folly and
viciousness of lotteries.
-As almost everything relative to Horace
Greeley has become a matter of public inter?
est, the following anecdote may now be In
order : Just four years ago, about this season,
he was seen to cross the Fulton Ferry to the
New York side one rather bleak afternoon.
The ladles' cabin, in which Mr. Greeley was
seated, for a wonder chanced to be occupied
almost exclusively by ladles, and Just as the
boat was about to start, a poor, thinly dad
and evidently sick and suffering woman, with
a baby in her arms, tottered into a seat. When
the boat arrived at its destination the
elegantly attired ladles passed out with?
out a kind look or word to their Burring
sister, who was evidently too ill to move.
Mr. Greeley loitered behind, went to the]
woman, spoke, to her for a min?te or two,
and then assisted her to rise, placed one ef J
her arms in his and taking the baby under'
the other ann passed out. And so they
walked down Fulton street, the passers bye
wonderingly and sometimes Jestingly ob?
serving the awkward, large-hearted, big
brained man stalking along, indiff?rent to
appearances and Intent only on his errand of
mercy and his strange companions, a baby on
one side, as If lt were a book or parcel under
his arm, and a poor, tottering woman on the
other. He placed them on board a street oar
at the Astor House, and, giving some money
to the woman, he spoke a few words of di?
rection to the conductor, and so they passed
their respective ways whether to meet again
In this world can only be known at the last
. great day.
-The Sues Canal, although a work of vast j
Importance to the commercial Interests ol the !
world, yields no revenue to Its shareholders.
Late Information obtained by the vienna
Chamber of Commerce, shows that the tolls j
of the canal produce about ?600,000 a year,
and its management and sustentation coat the
compaoy rather more than a third of that
som. The ?400,000 remaining are absorbed
In meeting the claims of the debenture hold?
ers, leaving no surplus for dividends. It has
long been deemed a matter of International
Importance that the neutralization of this im?
portant artery of trade should be secured, and
recently the Idea of purchasing the canal
from the shareholders by contributions of |
maritime nations, and of placing lt under the
control of an International Syndicate, has
been broaohed In the Italian Parliament. But
notwithstanding the unproductive character
ol their property, the shareholders are rep?
resented to be unwilling to Bell it, doubtless
believing that lt will in a few years become
an immensely remunerative work. The con?
cession granted to the canal company ls to
last ninety-nine years from the opening of the
canal to navigation, at tho expiration ot which
tine the Egyptaln Government la to enter into
toll possession of all the property and rights
appertaining to the work; BO lt will be seen
that the company has a long time before lt in
which to realize the fruits of its bold and
liberal enterprise. It is curions to observe
that the English j our nala are making baste te
give notice that If the canal ls te be sold Eng?
land bas the besfc claim to preference In Us
purchase. This claim la probably founded on
the fact that M. Lesseps, during, his first
efforts, met with the pertinacious opposition
ol the English Government, both in England
and Constantinople. The English ambassador
even went so lax as to Intrigue with the Sul?
tan In the hope of lndnorng him to squelch the
whole project by reluslng to sanction the acts
of the Viceroy in the matter.
rite Publie and tb? Press.
Upon the death of Horace Greeley the at?
tempt was made to obtain the control?!
the New York Tribune and convert it Into
an administration organ. In other words,
it was to be shown that the magnificent
ideas, of which Horace Greeley was the ad?
vocate, d ed with bim, and wltb his defeat
were dead. The movement failed. A cap?
italist, identified with tbe interesta of an op?
pressive and obnoxious monopoly, bought
the major part of the Tribune stock. There
was no apparent reason wby the great news?
paper should not at once become the mouth?
piece of the Binga, and be the abject slave
of the thousand and one schemes which, in
the guise of public benefits, seek to rob the
people. Bnt the whole project broke down.
The capitalist, within a very few dava, was
glad to re-sell to Mr. Greeley's chosen lieu?
tenant the controlling interest, and the Tri
bum to-day displays at its mast-head the
name of its founder-the name of bim who
led the battle for Beconclliation and Be?
nnion, and who, being dead, yet speaketh
words of friendliness and comfort to the
whole American people. This is one point
gained. The strongest of our journals, the
paper most fanons for solid force, as dis?
tinct from purely intellectual energy, still
stands, the foremost champion of that re?
conciliation and peace which gives to North
and South, to black man and to white, the
like security and content.
Mr. Colfax and his friends doubtless
thought that the Tt ibune could be bought
and sold like a pound of meat in the market,
and that men picked np at hazard could
continue to make it a great newspaper.
Therein lay the fatal error. A newspaper
! is powerful In two senses of the word. It
is the exponent of a public opinion, and, in
a measure, is read even by those who do not
share its opinions; its force in this last par?
ticular depending upon what may be called
its extrinsic merit as a newspaper, as dis?
tinct and separate from its intrinsic merit
as a mer .ns of propounding politico-econo?
mic theory. Io the hands of Mr. Orton and
bis colleagues the Tribune would have been
tongue-tied. Its reputation for indepen?
dence would, have been gone, because the
public would have known that, whenever
certain interesta came into play, the paper
would be sure to act, whether right or
wrong, in conformity with the pecuniary
leanings of proprietors, who had a larger
interest In the success of their pet projects
than in the honor and we Hare of the paper,
which might commit hari-kari in espousing
them. This would kill the paper aa an ex?
ponent of public opinion. But the purchas?
ers flattered themselves tbatr it might live
and flourish as a medium of Intelligence; as
a paper giving the latest and freshest news,
and, therefore, read by th ose-who never read
its leaders, or read them only to criticise or
condemn. Hr. Orton seems to have been a
victim to the common delusion that when
men have failed at everything else they
thereby become peculiarly fitted to take
charge of the public press. If critics are
men who have broken down in literature or
In art, newspaper editors are supposed to be
men who, because they themselves can do
nothing practical, are, therefore, capable of
leading towards the right and the true the
masses of the people. Mr. Orton fancied
that he could so conduct the Tribune, but
he broke down before he began. He speed?
ily learned the lesson that it needs trained
and experienced men to make a powerful
newspaper. Mere writing ls the least; part
of the work, and, in fact, does oftentimes
as much harm as good. The thoxaand
subtleties which go to make up a news?
paper, the drops wblch wear away the rock
of public prejudice, the unconsidered trifles
which become mountains In the course of
years-these are not the work of tyros or
amateurs, but of men to whom journalism is
a science, acquired by weary years of labor,
watchfulness and devotion to the press.
The time will come, perhaps, In this city,
as elsewhere, when the attempt will be made
to carry on a newspaper open the credit of a
name or a principle. The true journalist
can afford to regard such experiments with
a smile. A few months are sure to teach
the rash beginners that a real newspaper,
the repr?sentative of every interest, does
not live by theories, and that brilliancy of
writing can never atone for tardiness and
want of judgment in the gathering and pub?
lishing of news. The two things must march
together. A newspaper needs to be a
staunch exponent of the public opinion, and
it needs, besides, to be the means of laying
before the public, in acceptable shape, the
news of the day. And where both cannot
be done, it is easier to dispense with the
pretty talk than with the new which news,
by the way, costs much u.jney, money
which they who, in conducting a newspaper
have no other aim than political advance?
ment or social gain, cannot long afford to
Tbs Courier to be Sold.
It ls a sad breaking up when a newspaper
as old as The Charleston Courier 1B offered for
sale; and In reproducing, in our contempo?
rary's own words, the announcement of the
causes which compel a change of hands, we
venture to express the hope that The Cou?
rier, under its changed auspices, whatever
these may be, will enter upon a new career
of usefulness, under the good old name, and
long flourish, a friendly rival to Tas NEWS,
and a worthy coadjutor in the work of ad?
vancing the material interests of Charleston
and South Carolina.
I From the Charleston Courier, Deoember 26.]
It will be seen by the subjoined advertise?
ment that TM Charleston Courier ls offered
Ipr sale. Through a cycle now verging on
three score and ten, lt bas run Its busy, Ure
lees career, scaring la all the vicissitudes
which have chequered the life o? the commu?
nity of which lt has so long been au honored
exponent, and fulfilling a mission ot honor?
able service and extended usefulness. During
all this, protracted career Its proprietorship
has been maintained unchanged In substance,
and varied only by the addition of such asso?
ciates from without as contributed to Its
strength, or the loss ot esteemed co-workers,
gathered unto the harvest of death.
The settlements made obligatory by death,
as the advertisement Btates, now render lt
necessary to offer the establishment for Bale.
Io doing so, we look back with an honest
pride upon the unsullied reputation whloh
The Courier has ever enjoyed, and those who
succeed us may augur for themselves a hope?
ful future, if, building on the solid foundations
which this journal bas laid, they Btrive to
maintain its well-earned post in the front
rank among newspapers in the South-an
acknowledged organ of tried fidelity to our
commercial and business interests-enjoying
the trust and confidence of the stable and
good throughout the State and country by
reason of its undeviating straightforward?
ness-s conservatism which, while stimulating
all healthful progress, never confounded wild
license ol opinion with the freedom due to
honest convictions-the expression of law,
order, and an elevated morality.

Tb.-, New Tork Herald prints a List of
stockholders in the Credit Mobilier, compos?
ed of ex-Senators, Congressmen and ex
Congressmen and outsiders, numbering one
hundred and one, as obtained by Thomas C.
Durant, ex-president of tbeUoion Pacific
Railroad. In the list there are seven names
of one family by the peculiarly significant
name of Hazard. The Herald comments
with some severity upon not only the com?
mittee appointed to investigate the matter,
bnt npon the manner of investigation
adopted. Ic asserts that Mr. Cox, who was
called to the chair when Speaker Blaine ap?
peared before the House demanding- an in?
vestigation, was aware of the intention
several days before, and had abundant op
t portnnlty, as he had sagacity, to select a
committee which would sift the matter to
the bottom, and that ont of five of the com?
mittee named by Mr. Cox, four of them had
voted steadily for every legislative act de?
manded by the Credit Mobilier.- It further
objects to the secrecy of the Investigation,
and declares that the public would have
been better satisfied if the proceedings of
the Investigation had been published dally,
that they might have some opportunity to
jndge of the merits of the case. The Herald
adds that it has no faith in either the
ability or desire of the committee to reveal
the whole truth.
