A CORE FOB THE GRECIAN BEND.
Tho Hamilton (Canada) Spedc?or tells
tho following story, which should be
a yarning to fair smugglers and Gre?
cian benders particularly :
Tho Grecian bend was put to a
novel nee on the lin ff ni o and Lake
Hnron railway, a few days since. In
one of the first-class cars sat a hand?
some young lady, dressed in the
height of fashion, who appeared to
be onffering ender a father painful
attack of Grecian bend. As is usual
on tho train's arrival on the Ameri?
can side, the baggage of the passen?
gers was examined by tho United
States custom officer. "Havo you
any baggage, Miss?" inquired the
officer of the aforesaid young lady.
"Nothing, excopt this," replied she,
producing a small valise.
The officer examined and returned
it,'at the same time, scanning the
person of the young lady, in a man?
ner that almost amounted to rude?
ness. "Will you follow mo to tho
custom office, Miss?" said the official.
The corners of his mouth were al?
most drawn into a smile, and a mis?
chievous twin kio was perceptible in
hie eves, as he led the way to the
searching-room. Arrived in the
office,.the lady's face, which had pre?
viously been of a marble whiteness,
assnmed a crimson hue. "What is
here, ma'am?" said the officer, pass?
ing his hand over the back i of her
dress. "That is my Grecian bend,"
replied she, meekly casting down her
eyes. "I did not know there was
any duty to pay on it; if there is, toll
me how much, and I will pay it."
"There is no duty to pay on it, but
we must examine it," replied the ob?
A female searcher was procured,
and after strong protests on the part
of the young lady, the mystery of the
"Grecian Bend," ahas the "Montreal
wriggle," was unraveled, and found
to contain twelve yards of black silk
velvet, six pair of French kid gloves,
forty yards of rich lace, four white
ostrich feathers and a bottle of Gil?
bert's magio hair restorer. The
United States customs are now con?
vinced of the reason why the Greoian
bend has had such a rage, and they
intend to give their particular atten?
tion to any cases of this infectious
disease whioh may come under their
notice for the future. All cases of
Grecian bend will be immediately
put nnder quarantine on their arrival
across the border.
Baron Rothschild's family relations
were happy, bnt he lived to seo the
evil consequences of the system of
family inter-marriage the brothers
had adopted. Each married ? cousin
and their children married cousins.
Ono of the Baron's sons was deaf and
paralytic; another died of a disease of
the heart. Dr. Trousseau, who was
called in to attend the latter, said to
the Baron : 1 Tf yon continue to inter?
marry among your kindred, tho next
generation of Rothschild will bo
baboons." The Baron's only mar?
riageable son was, after this speech,
married to M'lle Anspach, the daugh?
ter of a judge of tho French Supreme
Court. Her father gave her $100,
000 for her dowry. Tho Baron re?
turned it to her family the day after
the wedding, saying: "She "is my
daughter now; 'tis for mo to take care
Tho champion eater of tho United
States is named Joshua Plumb. A
few days ago, he entered a restaurant
in Hudson, New York, and offered to
eat all that any one would pay for.
The challenge having been accepted,
he disposed of the following articles:
Ton pieces of apple pie, six corn
cakes, a quarter of a pound of orack
ers, six cups of peanuts, thirty
piokled clams, four lemons, an ounce
of candy, and two bowls of clam
Houp. He then drank six tumblers
of water and offered to eat a hundred
raw oysters. No one doubted his
ability to accomplish the feat, but no
one was willing to pay for the oysters,
and so he went off gtumbliug that ho
wasn't half full.

rjlHE undersigned. Commissioners, ap
I pointed by the General .Assembly of
South Carolina, at ita Ute session, will re?
ceive bids for tho valuable Water Power
known aS the COLUMBIA CANAL, until
the 5th day of JANUARY, 1869:
The Canal is eight thousand B?X hundred
and fifty-four (8,654) yarda long, and the
average fall' for tho first three miles is
fourteen feet, commencing at ten feet, at
Upper street, in Columbia, and attaining
ii moteen feet ono inch at Bridge streot;
tho remaining two milos, from Bridge
streot to ita mouth, commences at nine?
teen feet ten inches and attains a fall of
Fine bnilding sites exist botwoen the
Canal and Bivor. aivins oomoWn protec?
tion to buildings and machinery from
freshets. Tho State, through the under?
signed, will convey the Canal, and all its
appurtenances, together with tho right of
way for 100 feet on each aide of tho centro
of thc Canal, to the purchaser. Compen?
sation to the adjacent land-owners, for tho
right of way, to be made by tho purchaser;
on tho sama just and equitable terms that
tho right of way was conveyed to tho
Greenville and Columbia Railroad Compa?
ny by Act of Decomber 15, 1845.
This power han been accurately survoyed
by Prof. John LcCoute, of tho South Ca?
rolina University. He estimates that by
doubling tho original capacity of tho
Canal, as reauired by the Act, that tho
power secured to Bridgo street will be 355
horse-power, tho averago head being four?
teen feet; and from Bridgo street to its
mouth 532 horse-power, with an averago
head of twenty-one foot, ann a current of
ono foot por "second. With a cui ront of
two feet per second tho powers would bo
710 and 1,064 horse-power; and if tho ma?
chinery is not run at nicht tho power may
bo doubled, by accumulating water in re?
"AB tho supply of water," says Prof.
LeConto, "which"may bo turned from tho
River into the Canal at its head ?B almost
unlimited, the Canal can be enlarged to an
extent commensurate with the demand for
water power. If desired, it may bo made
to supply water to the extent of 5,000
horse-power or more. In fact, by very
simple arrangements, one-third, or ono
halt, or even more, of tho whole water in
Broad Bivor might bo turned iuto such au
This water power is within tho limitB ot
tho city of Columbia, and contiguous to
railroads which connect it with nearly
every County in the Stato of South Caroli?
na, and with tho adjoining States of North
Carolina and Georgia, anu their abundant
supplies of cotton, rice, corn, wheat, beef,
pork, and other vegetable and animal pro
ductions, and also in daily communication
with the sea-ports of Charleston, Savannal
and Wilmington. Tho city is suppli?e
with gas and fine water; tho climate is sa
lubrious and healthy, being above tin
miasmatic region; lands in the vicinity
aro cheap, and tho soil fertile; and there
aro but few sections iu the South whiel
present greater attractions for sottlemen
or residence. The water power, from iti
magnitude and advantages, is unequaloc
by any in South Carolina, and uusurpassee
by any in tho Southern country.
Tho property will be sold on tho follow
ing conditions, to wit: let. Tho purchase
shall, within two years from the dato o
conveyance, completo tho widening an?
deepening of said Canal to at least twic
its original capacity. [Its original capaci
ty was fifteen feet wido at top, eight fcc
at bottom, and four foci in depth. T
doublo it, according to Trof. LeConto's re
port, it will require the removal of 36,10
cubic yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yard
of stone, to Bridge street; andfromBridg
street to its mouth 22,176 cubic yards o
earth, but no stone.] That tho same sha!
always bo kept opon for boating purpose*
freo of charges, for toll or otherwise, t
where it is now used. [This will not intel

further condition that the work of widot
ing and deepening tho eaid Canal shall I

sum of $10,000 shall bo expended on th

That one-third of tho sum bid shall 1
