Gen. R. IC. Scott, the Columbia Canal and
From political and party influence. Gen.
R. K. Scott was elected to the Chief Magis?
tracy of the State of Sonth Carolina, and
therefore a distrust was engendered in the
public mind, that bis administration would
bo ex parle in* character; iu this they are
mistaken. Gov. Scott is ito carpet-bagger;
if he was, he has thrown it away and iden?
tified himself with the ?State-both by
interest and adoption-by having invested
largely in ber real estate and plautcd him?
self upon her soil, to Rhare the good and ill
to which she may be subjected. Ho found
tho State involved, and began his adminis?
tration with a depleted treasury and void of
State credit; her bonds not recognized
abroad, and deemed almost next to worth?
less at home; her bills receivable sluggishly
circulating at from 40 to GO per cent, below
par, and circumscribed to localities. Gov.
Scott soon gave birth to confidence abroad.
The State bonds aro now conspicuous in
foreign markets, commanding from G5@68c.
on the 81.00, with an upward tendency;
her bills receivable aro freely circulating.
"Last, though' not leaat," to further his
purpose, was the masterly scheme of the
Executivo in disposing of the Columbia
Canal. From that stand-point ho threw out I
his stragctic rope, by which ho harpooned
the "golden whale of Rhode Island," whose;
oil will soon light up tho streets of Colum?
bia-radiating hope, wealth and prosperity
to every quarter of the commonwealth of
South Carolina. This, in connection with
his recommendation to tho Legislature now
.in session, to perpetuate the South Carolina
College-that time-honored institution of
learning-demonstrates that Gov. Scott is
"the right man in tho right place." "Ren?
der unto Caesar," etc.
MK. EDITOB: On the 20th of September
last, I received a box of segars from New
York, weighing 270 lbs., for which I paid
freight, as per receipt, $2.69. On the 31st
of December, I received another box, weigh?
ing 230 lbs., aud the freight bill was $9.30
moro than treble the first bill. I showed
my bills to one of the agents of the South
Carolina Railroad, but he endorsed on them
correct. As tbero is evidently something
' wrong, I send you this communication, to
bring tho matter before tho railroad officials
as well as tho public. C. VOLGER.
A darkey, in Natchez, was boasting to a
grocer of tho cheapness of ten pounds of
sugar he had bought of a rival store. "Let
mo weigh tho package," said tho grocer.
Tho darkey assented and it was found two
pounds short. Tho colored gentleman
looked perplexed for a moment, and then
said, "Quess ho didn't chbnt dis* child
much, for while ho was gettin' do sngnr I
stole two pair of oboes."
1WU rcNKKALS FOB UNE MAN.-.V very
eccentric old gentleman, John Henry Mar
tin8tein, who kept nu "Old Curiosity Shop"
in New Orleans, but who, by his assiduous
attention to business, had realized a hand?
some fortune, lately died in that city. One
of the New Orleans journals relates a very
remarkable incident in bis life, which, it
says, many respectable citizens can vouch
for. Many years ago IMr. Martinslein was
taken quito sick and went off into a tui'ice,
which so nearly resembled death that his
demise was anuouueed, and all tho prepara?
tions made for tho burial. On thc.appoint?
ed day tho coffin containing the body was
placed in a handsome hearse, which, follow?
ed by a long traiu of mourners, proceeded
towards tho cemotery, when tho horses sud?
denly took fright and ran away, the coffin
being thrown violently to the ground and
burst open. The surprise and fright of tho
spectators may be imagined when from tho
coffin was r.ccn to ai is? Mr. Mnrtinstein
himself, still instinct with life, and present?
ing in his burial robes a sight from which
many ran headlong away. Hu very quietly
walked home, protesting against being put
away in so summary a manner, and declar?
ing his intention to live for many a long
day. This promise ho kept religiously, us
his lengthened hold upon lifo sufficiently
proves. Not tho least curious incident con?
nected with tho attempted burial of Mr.
Martinstein, was the fact that the under?
taker who bad been engaged bad no idea of
being cheated of what bc fancied was bis
just dues, and, upon being refused payment
for his partially performed service, brought
suit for tho amount, and actually obtaiued
judgment in bis favor in the lower court.
Mr. Martiustcin, however, took an appeal,
and the judgment was reversed-the court
ruling that ns be bad not performed tho
service for which he bad contracted, ho was
not entitled to pay for the same. There
woro those who followed the remains of thc
old gentleman to the grave this time who
were also in tho cortege when a fortunate
accident restored bim to his family aud
A SMALL FABM rs CALIFORNIA.-In a re?
cent conversation with a farmer from Cali?
fornia, be spoke of 1,200 ?cres as a smell
farm, and bis 200 acress of wheat as a small
affair. Some of his neighbors bad 5,000
acres of wheat, and tho yield was from
twenty to forty bushels to the ocre. The
highest yield be had known was eighty
three bushels to the acre. The fencing of
land was getting so common that cattlecould
not bo kept as profitably as formerly, and
he bad como East to invest in Cotswold
sheep. To an Eastern man tho terms miall
and great have a very indefinite application
in that country.
Sitka bas moro bar-rooms than private
houses, and the Aleutian ladies aro said to
drink, before dinner, a bottle of whiskey.
They dine on all sorts of game and venison,
and after dinner for desert, relish wimin oil
instead ot champagne.

vigorous frames are apt to negleet tlic precau?

robust a man is, the moro liberties he ia inclined
to take with his own physique. It is some conso?

that they can be so invigorated and built up, by a
proper use of the means which science has placed
at their disposal, as to have a much better chanco
