SECRET TRUSTS.-Tho United
States Supremo Court has recently
mado an important decision on the
subject of the transfers of laud, pro?
fessing to bo an absolute convoyrnco,
but accompanied with n concealed
verbal agreement between tho parties,
securing a bonefit to tho grantor nt
tho expense of his creditors. Tho
court says that tho law will not per?
mit a debtor in failing circumstances
to convey his lands by deed without
reservations, and yet occupy it for a
limited time for his own benefit.
Hence, when a debtor, in pursuance
of a privato understanding, retains
possession, rent free, for ono year, of j
land sold by him, such conduct cre?
ates a secret trust for his benefit, and
renders the conveyance fraudulent as
to creditors, and void. And it made
no difference, in tho legal aspect of I
the case before tho court, that the
interest reserved was not of great
value, and that tho debtor did not j
intend to defraud his creditors.
The nows from tho Northern
States which voted last Tuesday
grows better tho moro wc got of it.
Tbe radicals commenced by claiming |
22,000 majority ia Ohio, 15,000 in
Indiana, 18,000 in Pennsylvania.
Later and moro reliable intelligence,
however, establishes the fact that,
except in Ohio, their majorities are
LooKrxa AHEAD.-Bennett, of the
New York Herald, has made nomina?
tions for 1872. He says :
"We may yet witness, four years
from next March, the spectacle of a
restored Union, symbolized in the
persons of John Quincy Adams and
Wade Hampton-Massachusetts and
South Carolina-marohing arm in
arm into the White House to take
possession UH its legitimate occupants
for the next Presidential term."
THE MISSOURI DISFRANCHISEMENT.
A paragraph is going the rounds of
the papers, copied, we believe, says
tho National Intelligencer, from the
Missouri Democrat, a radical sheet,
stating that the number disfranchised
in Missouri are some 25,000. From
whatever sourco taken, this is a
shameless falsehood. Tho actual
number disfranchised is notoriously
from 80,000 to 90,000 persons. The
radicals show no disposition what?
ever to relax this proscription, but,
by means of their registration, have
resolved to keep the power of the
State in their ovvn hands.
Egypt is making a very substantial
show in the raising of cotton, and
will eventually, it is thought, become
a leading power in the culture of that
important staple She began to fur?
nish England with raw cotton in
largo amount in 1861-sending
41,000,000 pounds. In 1865 the
?uantity famished was 177,000,000.
n 1864, England paid Egypt over
864,000,000 for cotton. The year
before the war sho paid less than
07,000,000. Unless tho South can
be released from her present thral?

DEAR SIB: Having seen a good deal
of complaint relative to a certain lot
ol apples, for which a receipt was
given by the GronnviUe and Colum?
bia Railroad Company, to A. Miller
& Go., Greenville, S. G., consigned
to G. N. Averill, Charleston, S. C.,
dated Ootober 1, 1868, not arriving at
Charleston until October 7,1868, and
feeling a little interested in such mat?
ters, I have taken upon myself the
trouble to inquire in lo thu whys and
wherefores, and it has turned out just
os I expected, "a mountain of a mole

Tho down freight of th* Greenville

is an important item in this issue
Now, if you will notice, the 1st day
of October was Thursday. Tho re?
ceipt was given for thoso apples on
the 1st, after tho down freight had
loft Greenville. Will not that ac?
count for one day?
On Friday, October 2, tho apples
loft Greenville and arrived in Colum?
bia October 4, being nctually only
two days in transit? from Greenville
to Columbia. Sunday intervening
stopped them in Columbia one day,
ns ibero was no freight train out on
tho South Carolina Railroad on that
day. On Monday morning, October
5, they were turned over to tho South
Carolina Railroad Company, and Mr.
C. N. Averill says they arrived in
Charleston on tho 7th instant, 12 M.
Who lind them longest in transporta?
tion, tho Greenville nud Columbia
Railroad Company or tho South Ca

"Fair play is a jewel."
Now, Mr. Editor, I have it from
good authority, that if parlies en?
gaged in this apple trade will ship
them in sufficient quantities to justi?

them by passenger trains from either

DISGRACEFUL.-At the gathering
in Christ Church, Saturday, some
gentlemen who wcro straggling
through tho woods, at a little dis?
tance from tho speakers' stand, dis?
covered, in a clnmp of bushes, a
largo number of muskets stacked nud
apparently guarded by pome negro
women. Wo learn that there were
sufficient arms for 150 men. The
negroes had evidently come to tho
hustings armed, for what purposo it
is not known. It would seem that
theso people have been led on to this
by some fire-brands among them,
and, even at this late day, they fear
to attend a political meeting of their
own instigation unarmed, though
what they fear it is difficult to see.
Such lawlessness is greatly to be
deprecated, aud should bo discoun?
tenanced by the more influential
leaders of tho party. It can result in
no good; it niny lead to bloodshed.
[Charleston Courier, 19th.
A DOUUTFUIJ STATEMENT.-The
Roman correspondent of the Pall Mall
Gazette announces, on good authori?
ty, that the Ecumenical Council,
which, by order of tho Pope, is to
bo open not only to tho schismatic
bishops of the Eastern Church, but
to tho bishops and dignitaries of the
Church of England, and as a matter
of course to thoso of its offshoot, tho
Protestant Episcopal Church of the
United States. As the Roman Catho?
lic Church has unvaryingly denied tho
validity of Anglican orders, the con?
cession mado by it in this instance
must be considered an extraordinary
one.- Washington Star.
The political debate, in Christ
Church Parish, on Saturday, passed
off very quietly and orderly. About
2,000 persons were present, mostly
negroes. Tho speakers were Colonel
R. W. Seymour, Colonel Ii. H. Rut?
ledge and Judge F. D. Richardson,
on the Democratic side, and R. C.
DoLargo, C. C. Rowen and D. (J.
Chamberlain, on the Republican side.
Wo had prepared a full report, of the
proceedings and speeches, but regret
that we could not make room for it.
STABLES BURNT.-The log stables
on the premises of Mr. Louis Dial,
occupied by Mr. Joseph Crews, in
this village, were burnt on Saturday
night last. Mr. C. was absent at the
timo. The town authorities com?
menced an investigation of the mat?
ter on Wednesday last, bnfc Mr. C.
declined to allow certain parties who
reside on tho premisos to testify, on
the ground that he intended to take
ont warrants against some parties.
Disturbances have taken placo in
New Zealand. A large number of
Maoris confined at Chatana Island,
breaking out of their prison reached
the mainland, massacred a captain
and ten men forming the guard and
escaped to tho interior, where, being
joinod by other tribes, they have
commenced a fresh rebellion against
the authority of England.
A correspondent of the New York
Does advertising pay? The uni?
versal answer is that it does, and
hardly a person bat can give cse or
more instances within his own know?
ledge of men who have made fortunes
by advertising. Ask not merely tho
?>atent medicine men, but go to men
n ordinary mercantile business.
Ask Mr. Bradley if it paid to ad?
vertise the "Duplex Eliptio Skirt,"
Ask Mr. W?lls if it pays to adver?
tise the Phrenological Journal.
A.'ik Mr. Charles Hassell if it paid
to advertise his new hotel and diuiug
Ask Mr. Gilinau if it paid to ad?
vertise tho Great American Tea
Ask tho North Amcricnu Life In?
surance Company if advertising has
Ask Mr. Packard or Mr. Putnam
if advertising has helped their month?
Tho fact is, that sensible, skillful
advertising pays ten-fold better thau
any and all other investments that
call for a like amouut of expenditure.
Wo have seen it on a hnjf dozen
leading papers, and have felt it in
our own business. There is nothing
that pays liko advertising. It is, in
rcnli?y, the only royal road to wealth.
And yet there is no element of
success so little used and so much
We have in mind so many varied
and remarkable instances of success?
ful advertising, that we stop for a
moment to recall some of them.
Prominent among thom are the lead?
ing Wall street banking houses.
Everybody is familiar with thc suc?
cess of Jay Cooke ?fc Co. with tho
national loan, tho result of which,
wo know, the linn ascribes very
largely to its liberal advertising. A
Utile later we como upon one of the
most brilliant successes nf ibo coun?
try-that of Fisk & Hatch, the Nas?
sau street bankers, aud the fiscal
agents of tho Central Pacific Rail?
road. What with their energy, n
good investment, and persistent ad?
vertising, (amounting thc past year
to not far from a quarter of n million
of dollars.) this firm is able to supply
tho Central all tho timo with moro
monoy thau it needs. Mr. Hatch, ot
this house, has no peer iu New York
for sagacity and discernment in tho
whole matter of advertising, and ho
has tho utmost faith in its efficacy.
The same success has attended the
advertising of the Union Pacific
bonds, in which an immense sum
has been expended this year. Of
tho medicine advertisers, of course,
Helmbold stands promptly at the
head-spending as ho does nearly a
thousand dollars a day, every day in
the year. Ho often sells, nt retail,
from his New York stoic nlone, seve?
ral hundred dollars worth of his tonio
in a single day. Tho wholesale orders
aro simply astounding, and would
hardly bo credited by our readers if
wo should givo thom.
Thc boase of George P. Rowell &
Co. was established in Boston, tho
first borne of advertising agencies, in
1S05. Meeting with unexpected
prosperity, it was soon after moved
to New York, and in November, 1SGG,
the Advertiser's Gazette, a monthly
paper devoted to entertaining matter
about advertising and newspapers,
was established. The firm occupies
an elegant suit of rooms in the
Timen building, running through
from tho Park to Nassau street. The
number of men employed is eighteen,
two of whom devoto all their time te
forwarding advertisements to coun?
try newspapers, and four uro assigned
to the duty of examining the papers,
to seo that all advertisements are cor?
rectly inserted. It requires the con?
stant labor of ono man to file and sort
papers after they have been examin?

their excellent behavior and praise
worthy conduct, will not be led astraj
by excitement, or the advice of bad

KEEI- WARM AND SAVE YOUR LIFE.
At this season, many deaths take
place which might be provent?d by
warmer clothing. Many a fatal case
of dysentery is caused by the want of
a woolen under-shirt, or of an extra
blauket at night. Tho sudden
changes of temperature which occur
at this period of tho year are very
trying to the constitution. People
with weak lungs quickly feel the
effect of them. Frequently, the
thermometer falls many degrees
within a few hours. Not only the
feeble, but robust aud strong persons,
suffer from such great variations of
temperature. When tho weather
grows cold rapidly, the pores of the
skin aro suddenly closed, and the
result, frequently, is a bad cold,
which may hold on all winter and
terminate in consumption, or a fatal
attack of dysentery, or that dreadful
disease the typhoid ?Fever, If thc
day soems over so warm and bright,
it is much safer to wear plenty of
under-clothing at this season. lu
the evenings, tho dows fall, and it
grows chilly very suddenly. At all
times, oven when it feels the warm?
est, one experiences the difference,
which iii so marked, between 'the
autumn atmosphere and that of the
Bummer. There is something more
than thc mero difference in tempera?
ture; it may be in the electricity. An
occasional fire in a room dries tho
walls and purifies tho atmosphere.
A little timely attention to all theso
things would provent a great deal of
