DTRECT COMMUNICATION WITH GER?
MANY.-The subjoined letter of Mr.
W. J. Ferlov, the agent sent from
South Carolina to Sweden and Den?
mark, to induce immigration to this
State, will bo read with great interest
by planters ard merchants:
HAMBURG, January 3, 1868.
General John A. Wagener, Commis?
sioner of Immigration.
SIR: It is with a great deal of satis?
faction I can communicate to you,
that I have at last arrived at some?
thing more definite, in regard to a
direct communication with Europe.
The Hamburg American Steamship
Company have authorized me to in?
form you, that the company will be
willing to let those steamers, which
are now running to New Orleans,
touch at Charleston, if goods or emi?
grants enough can be furnished to
pay for the expense. Tho steamers
would commence on tho 1st October,
1868, and make seveu trips to New
Orleans, the last triv April, 1869,
though a steamer mu, bo hud at any
other time, if it should become neces?
sary. The company would also form
a second compauy with tho merchants
of Charleston, and let them have one
or two steamers, as the case might
require, and work to their mutual in?
It is tho desire here, that tho cot?
ton should be imported direct, aud
not over England. The Hamburg
American Steamship Company is too
well known-so I need not tell you
that the proposal is made in good
faith, and it will now rest with tho
merchants o? Charleston to act in
this matter. A direct communication
can now be established, and I do not
need to enlarge upon how much, in
everyway, it would benefit our State.
Hoping soon to hear from you iu re?
lation to this mattor, I am, very re?
spectfully, W. J. FERLOV,*

^^^^ I HAVE PATENTED, and

/JrfSBBsi important improvement in
^~Ui ? F tlu construction of ARTIFI?
CIAL DENTURES, whereby tho strength,
reliability and facility of repair, pertain?
ing to swaged plate work, is communicated
to moulded metalic or vulcanizable base.
Strong Plate Teeth aa firmly attached to
the base as if soldered to swaged
plate, are, by this process, substituted for
those specially designed for moulded base.
By their uso the operator ia left freo to ex?
ercise his own judgment in their arrange?
ment, and linda himself no longer conflnod
to the aamcncbB of tho present stylo of
blocks, or single teoth weakened by carv?
ing for moulded work.
No new appliances ure reqnircd in this
process. Tt is easily acquired by any ono
familiar with either moulded or swagod
work. It givea to tho operator contidenco
in tho reliability of hie cases, exempting
him from thc disappointment and per?
plexity often ni tendant on his most faith?
ful efforts. It renders partial cases as reli?
able as full sets, and, consequently, will
tend to ameliorate tho present deplorable
practice of extracting every tooth, eonnd
