EARTHQUAKES. -Some professor in
a collego ont West has expressed tho
opinion that we shall have earth?
quakes on our Atlantic coast as thoy
?av? bsd recently on the Pacific.. In
this opinion ho may bo correct ; but
as it may tond to unsettle tho. minds
of some folks who might bo led to
anticipate suoU a calamity, just as
some have been crazed by the doc?
trines of those who lmvo named tho
day when the world shall be destroy?
ed, it may tond to re-assure them by
prodaoing opinions . which are quite
tho reverso of thoso hold hy the West?
ern professor. From an article upon
th? recent, earthquakes in South
America and California, this writer
"These shakes which they have
had in California came from tho agi?
tation imparted to the lava which un?
derlies th? comparatively thin crust
of tho Western section of our conti?

we repose upon a thick, solid and re?

tion, because we have no use_ for
these safety valves and escape pipes.
W? are all right. But in 1811, it
will be remembered by somo, thoro
was au earthquake at New Madrid, on
the West side of the Mississipi, from
which somo forests weut down aud
some little lakes were ?rented. From
the West side of the Mississippi,
therefore, we may assumo the crust
of the earth, to the Pacific, especially
in the valleys, is comparatively thin,
and the two sections otherwise are os
widely different as Europe aud Asia.
Tho continent East from the Missis?
sippi is like Enropo, and West like
To know that "we ave all right,"
and "have no us? for tbese safety
valves," is certainly a comfort.
PKA.CE on WAB.-The Journal de Si.
Petersbitrg, of tho last of October,
publishes an article headed "Peace
or War," in which it argues that it is
quite possible that peace may be
maintained in Europe, notwithstand?
ing tho armaments of the different
powers. Discussing the eventuality
of a war between France and Prussia,
the article says: "If France, victori?
ous, should advance beyond the
Rhine, and in caso tho Duchy of
Posen should become the scene of an
agitation which would extend to Rus?
sian Poland, th? Russian army would
havo to actively watch over the main?
tenance of order, and a rapid and
energetic national movement would
spread over the Russian empire. On
th? day when the French eagles ad?
vance victoriously into Germany, the
recollection of the first empire will
revive in onr minds, and master
every other thought."
THE PROTEST.-The counsel select?
ed to represent tho claimants and
protestants in tho investigation now
going on before the Charleston City
Council, are ns follows: For protest
ante-Messrs. C. R. Miles and T. G.
Barker will conduct the case, and
Messrs. G-. G. Me m min ger, A. G.
Magrath, I. W. Hayne and Jas. B.
Campbell, act as advisory counsel.
For the claimants-Messrs. D. T.
Corbin, D. H. Chamberlain and C.
C. Bowen appear.
We perceive by tho advertisomeute
of tu? New York nod Cuurleston
steamships that insuranco can bo ef?
fected at one-half per cent. We have
reason to boliovo that our shippers ol
produce, and merchants generally,
have been and probably are still
charged mach higher rates. It is
well for them to look into this. This
rednction is very important to their
interests, and, besides, is an addi?
tional argument for shipments vis
Charleston, the ratea bf insurance
via Portsmouth and Charleston being
thus nearly, if not quite, equalized.

UXAGOKRATED ttADICAIi STATEMENTS.
The Charleston Republican (frocd
men's organ,) after figuring ont
19,102 Republican majority in South
Caronia, says that Whitteruoro'e
(Bap.) majority for Congress in the
first Diatriot will roach 0,000; Bowen's
(Bop.) in the second, 2,300; Boed's
(Dem.) in the third, 5,600 "by
fraud," and Simpson's (Dom.) in tho
fourth, 4,500 "by fraud." Tho New
York Tribune, in copying tho Repub?
lican's article, comments thusly:
"We publish olsewhore a few ex?
tracts from the Charleston Republi?
can, the freedmen's organ, whioh
throw light upon tho election of the
Democratic Congressmen in 8outh
Carolina. Assassination and throats
of .violence elected Messrs. Heed und
Simpsou. Theso gentlemen, ono of
whom isineligiblo on account of his
rebel record, have jot to learn a let>
son whioh will bo taught them by tho
forty-first Co tigress. "
Tho Republican says:
"Messrs. Whittemore and Bowon
havo each mado a splendid campaign.
They have spoken often and effective?
ly in every part of thoir Districts,
and toiled every day and night with
unremitting ouergy. Tho triumph
they have won has boon well deserv?
ed. Messrs. H?ge und Wullnco have
done the best they could. They will
occupy seats iu the nest Congress.
Wo hope thnt tho mujority in South
Caroliua will exceed 20,000. The es?
timated Democratic majorities for tho
up-country Counties seem extrava?
gant. But no real olootiou was held
iu those Couuties. Tho Democrats
voted as curly uud as often as they
pleased. A few Republicans were
permitted to vote, to koop up appear?
ances. That is the whole story.
Scores of mon have beeu shot down
for the temperate exercise of the
right of free speech; hundreds have
been beuton and maimed, and hun?
dreds more drivcu from their homes
and cheated of thoir pay for voting
according to euuscience and duty,
while thousands were kept from tho
polls by threats of murder and in?
jury. But in spito of all these things
wo have, by tho blessing of God,
won the victory. Aud now tho Re?
publican party must take such mea?
sures as to punish crime, to educate
public sentiment, and make free
schools, free speech, free labor and
free ballot come to all as unquestion?
ed and unobstructed as the air vt
breathe. This is tho duty whicl

We must do it or bo false to Bepub

said in his speech accepting the no
minution, that he did uot expect to b
elected. He said that up in his sec
tiou ho would toko measures to huv
tho negroes vote tho Democrati
ticket or keep them at home. If th
'niggers' had 'the courago aud iinpu
deuce to como out and vote as the
pleased,' he could not win. Ho too

A laughable yet historical incident
j occurred Wednesday at the Treasury

bearing Adjutant Gouerul Townsend's
mark aud seal, and a locksmith sent
for. After a great deal of trouble tho
box was opened, and the special de?
posit found to consist of au old scarf
and water-proof cloak, with a letter
from an ollieer of Wilson's cavalry
division, certifying that they were tho
articles composing the femalo cos?

The Terribie Result of wt 8m ill
On Friday last a gentleman em
Sloyed as a traveling salesman for a
few York house, whoso family resides
in an interior town of this State,
stopped, as many do, weary and tra?
vel-stained, at a hotel in this city. He
arrived OD tho 8:80 train from De?
troit, having come from some point
far to the westward that day, and,
tired, weary, dusty, sore, fatigued
and disgusted, registered Iiis name,
had a room assigned him, and pro?
ceeding thereto, sought to repose in
the quiet arms of Morpheus, dream?
ing, if ho dreamed at all, of tho trade
he should drivo with the thrifty mer?
chants of the Corn City on the mor?
A merchant of this city, who was a
patrou of tho house to which this par?
ticular traveler belongs, happened
to bo in tho hotel that ovening at
about ?) o'clock, and his eye falling
upon tho register it alighted upon
this particular name. Unfortunate
look! Unhappy circumstance! Fot
this merchant wus of a jocose turn ol
mind-a wag, a joker-ono of those
men who tlo all sorts of absurd things
hoping that amusement of some kind
will follow. Ho did an absurd thiug
to the name, though the occurrences
that followed were anything but
amusing. What did he do? Why ht
seized a pen, and in tho samo hand?
writing as near as possible ho added
to the namo of thc commercial tra?
veler np stairs tho words "and lady.'
Two small words; but things ure ofter,
productivo of great results. It is said
a dispute about, a hog-trough set io
motion tho succession of events thai
made Martin Van Buren President,
and it is a well known fact that a wei
bucket caused ono of tho largest ant
bloodiest wars that ever afflicted Eu

-added to tho name of a sleeping
commercial traveler, was tho occa
sion of an unpleasantness not as tor
rible to humanity iu general as war
but quite as disagreeable to this om
member of the humuu family.

THB JUDGE'S MISTAKE.-A most
amusing story is told of Judge B-,
now occupying a high position in the
Pennsylvania State government.
Traveling some years since by rail, to
Harrisburg, on a blazing hot day,
with some friends, tho iron horse had
stopped to wator, when suddonly ho
drow his white handkerchief from
his pocket and bogan waving it vigo?
rously in tho air, at tho same time
bobbing his head ont of the window
in a very energetic manner.
"What aro you about, Judge?"
asked Mr. Q., without rising from
"Why, don't you see yonder?
There's a lady waving a white hand?
kerchief, and I'm returning the sa?
"Who is sho, Judge?" asked Mr.
Q., as ho lounged in one corner.
"Well, the fact is, I dou't exactly
know; I'm quito near-sighted and I
can't recognize her; but she is
dressed in groy silk, and stands yon?
der, under a big maple tren, near my
frieud John li.'s house."
Mr. Q. hobbled over to tho Judge's
side and gazed in tho direction indi?
cated, but Baw only that tho Judge
had been exchanging salutes for ten
minutes with au iron-gray mare,
whose long white tail, as it dapped
away tho flies, had been takou by
him for a white handkerchief, waved
by a lady in a gray silk dress.
Tho battons that were subsequent?

have been exceedingly numerous.
