T??e painful recollections which we
alluded to, yesterday, almost prevents

To our young men, we presume to
give a word of advice, and we give it
knowingly. Get to work, and work
with energy and industry to develop
our resources; and the rich rewards
of peace will be yours. We do not
give the advice without experience.
Work, woi-k, should be the motto of
all now, and only in this way can we
hope to retrieve our broken fortunes,
and restore o?r.Iormer-prosperity.
We cite for' their'encouragement
the examples of R. E. Lee, President
of a College; Joseph E. Johnston,
President of the National Express
Company; Gen. Beauregard, Super?
intendent of the New Orleans Rail?
road; Gen. Wade Hampton, and a
dozen "others, who have entered upon
agricultural employments. These
have all done well, and labor has
been dignified by their accession to

lature of Tennessee has recently
passed a bill loaning the Memphis
and Ohio Railroad Company $400,

at the Cumberland and Tennessee
Rivers, and put the road in thorough
repair to Paris. .
ALABAMA.-A number of loyal
Alabamians have arrived at "Washing?
ton,, for the purpose of representing
to the President the condition of
affairs in Alabama. They say that
the State officers, from Gov. Patten
down, use the influence of their posi?
tion to oppress and persecute the
Union men of the State, whose con?
dition is much worse than at any time
during the rebellion.
The New York Times, of the 12th
instant, says: A gentleman who ar?
rived in this city last evening, direct
from Texas, by the Galveston steam?
er-and whose means of information
are unsurpassed-assures us that the
cotton crop of that State, for the pre?
sent year, will exceed 600,000 bales.
The industrial question in Texas is
rapidly finding a solution in the pro?
fitable labor contracts which are en?
tered into. There is an entire ab?
sence of all political excitement. The
negroes of the State are in perfect
and blissful ignorance of the attempts
going on in Washington to make
them politicians, and it will take tons
of Senatorial speeches to waken up
any class of the Texan population on
any subject not immediately bearing
on the production of wealth.
This may be a melancholy prospect
for the political "Stiggins," with his
reformatory schemes; but it suits the
views of both the laborer and his
employer, in Texas, for the time.
They are going to make money in
that section of the country. If other
cotton-growing States do half as well
as Texas, (in proportion to their in?
dustrial strength,) the cotton crop
this year will be more than doable
tho ordinary estimate of its amount.
Then comes the general tumble.
Even now the signs unmistakably in*
dicate the fall that must come.

great number of prisoners, not more
than one blanket can be allowed to

therefore, is out of the question. In
consideration of thes? circumstances
and wishing to lessen your sufferings
as much as possible, the court,"in the
exercise of its humane compassion,
hereby orders you to be executed to?

fast as may be convenient to the

DEAS PHOENIX: This city is situated
oh the Potomac, about seven mile?
from Washington. It contains about
25,000 inhabitants, and has 300 stores
and shops. There are seventeen
churches in this oity-two Presbyte?
rian, four Baptist, three Episcopal,
one Roman, and seven Methodist.
The Orphan Asylum is quite a hand?
some building, and has twenty-five
inmates. There is a comfortable
house here called the Widow's Home,
but it has no inmates.
The beautiful and capacious build?
ings of the Episcopal Theological
Seminary are near this city, but,
owing to the present state of our
country, there are very few students
in attendance on the exercises of this
Owing to certain action by the
General Conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church in 1860, the Balti?
more Conference became divided, a
large majority of the members de?
siring to adhere to the Southern sec?
tion of the great Methodist Episco?
pal Church, and a minority adhering
to the Northern section. The former
part of the Conference have been in
an anomalous position ever since that
time, until, a few days ago, they met
in a conventional capacity, resolved
to unite with the Methodist Episco?
pal Church South, and invited Bishop
Early to preside over the delibera?
tions of ito body. This Conference
has a number of able ministers in its
membership. Its deliberations thus
far have been characterized by perfect
harmony and great unanimity.
- Just at this time, there is some
danger of friction between the North?
ern and Southern sections of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, but we
fondly hope that nothing will occur
to impair the usefulness of either
section. TJue citizens of this city
have suffered in many ways during
the past years, yet their kindness and
hospitality have not been diminished.
By-the way, the Methodist Episco?
pal Church, South, has done an im?
portant missionary work among the
Indians and colored people. There
were in the South 480 missions, under
the care of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South. This Church had in
her communion more than 250,000
colored persons, and influenced three
fourths of this entire people through

DEAR PHCBNTX: I reached this city
on Saturday afternoon, and found
comfortable quarters in a private
Yesterday morning, I attended
church at the Foundry Methodist
Church. This will be a beautiful
church when completed. The Rev.
Bishop Simpson preached an inte?
resting sermon. His theme was the
relation of the visible and the invisi?
ble. The sermon indicated much
profound thought on the part of the
speaker. The Bishop's physical or?
ganization detracts somewhat from
his appearance and effectiveness. He
is what we call a little stoop-shoul?
dered. His sermon had many strik?
ing passages of beautiful imagery and
appropriate analogy, and it contained
sufficient earnestness, yet it appeared
to lack much of that warmth and
spontaneous gush of deep feeling
which are the peculiar characteristics
of Southern orators. His voice was
clear and his enunciativa very dis?
tinct, still there was not that softness
and sweetness of pathos that I Lave
heard from men of even inferior in?
tellect. At the close of the sermon,
the celebrated Mr. Philips, of Cin?
cinnati, played and sung a solo, which
was perfectly enrapturing. He seems
to have the most perfect control of
his voice, and there is an unearthly
melody of sweetness about it, which
I never heard before. He must have
been reared in a warmer climate than
In the evening, I attended service
in the Independent Methodist Church,
and heard a capital sermon from Rev.
Mr. Dyee, of Staunton, Va. There
was much solid thought and logical
symmetry in the sermon.
This city, together with George?
town, contains abo^ 100,000 inhabi?
tants, though many, of these are
transient. This is not a great com?
mercial city, yet there is a large retail
trade done here.
In the two cities, there are ninety
four churches and chapels, divided as
follows : One Spiritualists' Society, two
Friends' Meeting Houses, four Luthe?
ran, ono New Jerusalem, one Chris?
tian Church, one Hebrew Synagogue,
one Congregational, twelve Presbyte?
rian, thirteen Baptist, seven Roman
Catholic, twenty-two Episcopal, and
twenty-nine Methodist. What a va?

people !_ OMEGA.

Col a milla. Correspondence.
We make the following extracts
from a letter from Colombia, pub?
lished in the New York Newt. The
writer says truthfully, that "capital is
tho main want of all:"
This city is rising from its ashes
but slowlyl The entire business
portion was burned. The business
that has sprung up is off from the
former Main street-the business
street-and is very much scattered.
Everything is in shops--wooden
shanties run up for temporary use, to
be pushed back whenever the means
of the occupant may warrant his
putting xip a better honse. On Main
street perhaps a dozen' houses have
been erected; these almost all one
story plain store-rooms, fitted np in
the cheapest style. The total amount
of goods on sale, however, is perhaps
greater than it has ever been hereto?
fore; certainly the number of shops
is greater than ever before.
Mechanics are doing a thriving
business; and more carpenters and
brick masons are wanted'. But the
main want of all is capital-capital to
ont hands to work, and to revive
business in all its branches. Capital
can be safely and profitably invested
in a score of different ways.
The railroads connecting this point
with the world of trade and travel are
bestirring themselves. Trains on the
South Carolina railroad will certainly
run through from Charleston to

The Greenville and Columbia rail?
road has five miles of road and a

Travel, meanwhile, will connect across
the hiatus with stage and boats. The
Charlotte and South Carolina rail?
road-that connecting this city with
the great thoroughfares of northward
and westward travel-has about twen

The South Carolina College, a? the
recent session of the Legislature, was
changed into the University of South
Carolina. This institution went into
operation on the 8th inst., with abont
twenty students. Abont sixty or
seventy are expected in the course of
a month or two; and the annual
session may reach a hundred before
it closes. Senator Barnwell was
elected Chairman of the Faculty o?
the University at the organization.
The Faculty consists of Professors
Barnwell, LaBorde, Reynolds, John
LeConte, Rivers, Joseph LeConte,
and Alexander. The Chair of Modern

A goodly ntimber of schools has
sprung up in the city; but they have
few students, in consequence of the
scarcity of money. Education has
been very mucli neglected for four
or five years.
A grand chance for capitalists is the
canal along the Congaree River, with?
in a mile of the central part of the
city. It is several miles in length,
and affords more available water
power than is to be had at Lowell,
Massachusetts. The recent Legisla?
ture put the disposal of the canal in
the hands of a commission, the chair?
man of which is Governor Orr.
The Sumter Watchman, of the 14th
inst., fears the growth of too much
cotton. It says:
"We are fearful that some of our
planters, in their anxiety to make
cotton, will neglect their corn fields.
There is danger of causing great
scarcity of bread the coming year.
We. are too apt to go from one ex?
treme to the other. And then the
price of cotton is so temptingly high.
But it should be remembered that
even an approximation to a full crop
will greatly reduce the price of the
staple; and that, in all probability, a
lesser amount will yield an equal
number of dollars with a greater,
while from the former we must real?
ize a more abundant supply of bread. "

The message of Governor Lyon to
the L?gislature of Idaho contains
some points of? interest to Eastern
people. Daring the past year, it
seems over $17,000,000. worth of gold
and silver has been produced in that
Territory, and the yielJ. is rapidly
increasing. The following paragraphs
from the message read like an extract
from the "Arabian Nights:"
A bird's-eye view of the accumu?
lating discoveries iu our mineral re?
sources, reveals that we have no less
than 3,000 gold and silver-bearing
quartz ledges, graded in their value 1
as in their richness, and new discove-1
ries and new locations are being made j
almost daily. The width of these
lodes, or leads, varies from three to
thirty feet, and they pi'ospect from
twenty to five hundred dollars per
ton. Located usually where water
power and timber are in abundance,
they offer the highest inducements to
the enterprising capitalists, whose
investment can rarely fail of being of
the most remunerative character.
Among the other useful ores
which have been discovered within
the last year, tin, ^pinnabar, copper,
lead, and iron in many forms, are of
tlie first value; yet platina, antimony,
nickel, bismuth, irridum and rho

j from a recent letter of the Commis

j useful and important information:
I OFFICE OF INTERNAL REVENUE,
WASHINGTON, Jan 30, 1866.
SIR: Your letter of the 22d inst.,
to the proprietors of the Intelligencer,

is subject to stamp duty at the rate of

DISTRESS IN INDIANAPOLIS.-An
examination of the assessor's books
will reveal an amount of poverty
much greater than is usually believed
to exist. Many men reputed to bein
easy circumstances will be found to
be on the verge of bankruptcy, having
no property to speak of, while others,
who manage to dress well and keep a
respectable appearance, will be found
in imminent danger of actual starva?
tion. A prominent citizen returned
twenty-five dollars as the sum total
valuation of his property, but, after
an hour's haggling, was persuaded to
swell his estimate to twenty-eight
dollars. A saloon keeper in the
Eastern part of the city estimated his
stock, fixtures and household furni?
ture at sixteen dollars.

Tari ff Taxation
In order to show the enormous tri?
bute which the tariff system enables
the manufactures to wring from the
industry of the country, we give the
following calculations, which are
made up by the Chicago Times:
By comparison with the returns of
1860, the consumption -of cotton
goods in the United States is found
to be 8187,994,316 in 1865, on the
basis of the present ruling at the
former period. But the price of
these goods has risen enormously.
250 per cent, would be a low esti?
mate for the increase. Say 200 per
cent., and the actual gold value of
the cotton goods consumed in the
United States during 1865 would be
$563,982,948, and putting the average
price of gold for the year at 150, the
currency value would be $845,970,
422. By a similar process the value
cf woolen goods consumed during
the same year is ascertained to be
$279,093,861-giving the following
total: Cotton goods consumed, $845,
974,422; woolen goods consumed,
$27?, 093,861. Aggregate value of
go*.as consumed in 1865, $1,125,
The tariff imposes u duty averaging
about 44 }? per cent, in gold, or 63%.
per cent, in currency, with gold at
150. Almost the whole of this amount
appears in the price of domestic
goods. The United States Economist,
a paper devoted to the dry goods in?
terest, stated, not long since, that to
manufacture a yard of Sprague prints
cost 17 cents, but the manufacturers
would not sell it at less than 27 cents.
This is about 60 per cent, over the
cost of production, which may be
taken as a basis. According to this,
thc manufacturers sell about $1,100,
000 of heir goods for about $1,800,
000, thus making a clear profit of
$700,000. We leave out the pro?
fits of the wholesale and retail mer?
chants in this estimate, because their
proportion would be about the same
under either s3Tstem. Their actual
profits, however, would be greater to
the extent that the general business
of the country would be increased by
Without going any further, there?
fore, we find that the people of the
United States pay a tax of $700,000,
000 on cotton and woolen goods alone,
the greater part of which goes as a
bonus into the pockets of the manu?
facturers ot New England.
The amount which goes into the
Treasury is not more than 80,000,000
at the outside. It is probably even
much less than this, as the effect of
the high tariff has been to drive
foreign goods almost entirely out of
the American market.
Now, this vast sum thus wrung
from the people by the voracious ma?
nufacturing capitalists of the Eastern
States in each year, is one-fifth as
great as the whoie public debt.
It is double the revenues of the
Government during the fiscal yeai
ending June 30, 1865.
It is greater than the estimated
revenues of the Government, from al
sources, during the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1866.
It is equal to one-twentieth of th?
entire value of all the real and per
sonal property of the country-ii
other words, it would buy all th?
property of the country in twentj

of a pin-head, was examined throng

AN ARTIFICIAL SNOW STORM.-The
intensity of the cold in New York.
Monday morning, was demonstrated
by a very singular phenomenon. It
was a snow-storm formed by steam.
At the Fulton Ferry-house, a pipe of
the heating apparatus carried the ex?
hausted steam into the air ; the end of
the pipe pointed upward, and the
loree with which the steam issued
caused it to ascend thirty or forty
feet. While in the air it was not only
condensed, but congealed, and came
down in beautiful flakes of snow. / A
somewhat similar instance was re?
cently reported to have occurred at a
ball-room in Russia.
