Frilay Moraine, March 12. Ibm
Org?ul*UlloU ul tile A^rlculturnl Iiilcrrit,
Our people are not sufficiently practical tn
tho matter of combining together for a
given purpose. Thoy have not the habit of
assooiation. Many good schemes fail be?
cause it is beyond the power and means of
an individual to sccnro their success.
Upon many grounds it is eminently de?
sirable that there should bo soon an organi?
zation of the mauhood mi l virtue which
still remain amongst us. Changes are going
on, aud thc integrity of men is subjected to
asevere teni. Power necessarily attracts
support, and tho* weak and unprincipled
naturally gravitate towards it. It should
be an object of solicitude with ns that while
times change, wo do not change with them;
that a remnant ut least should be saved, nod
that the great slough of radical mongrelism
should ouly receive those whoso instincts
and tastes lead them into it.
We might remark upon tho melancholy
and undeniable fact that tho niling powers
hero aro practically advocates of miscegena?
tion; that in the social reuuious of certain
high-low officials, black spirits and white,
not to speak of yellow, minglo ou tho most
intimate aud loving terms. It ta a mutter
of shameful notoriety, too, that bribes, by
euphemism called "fees," aro openly giveu
and taken to secure the passage of measures
in tho present Legislature. A member, in
speaking upon tb? Port Royal Railroad, a
few days ago, "let tho cat ont of the bag,"
and the blindest could seo the meal upon
its back. Tho recent election of Trustees
of the University, and tho appointment of
the guard at the Peniteutiary, will show all
who are not stupid what awaits us in the
fnture. Having political ascendancy, the
party at present foisted into tho places of
power and trust, have resolved to outrage
every virtuous aud honorable sentiment of
our people. 10 ve ry step they tuko indicates
the purpose to take control of all public in?
terests, and to moko the toleration wo allow
their most extreme and hateful measures:,
including repulsive social association with
negroes and mulattoes, tho test of merit
nnd the badge of office. Wu have a rod in
pickle for these infamies hud abuses. We
cannot dwell upon them now.
It becomes ns, then, to possess our souls
in peace, aud to wait with patience and
hope, aud to work with euergy for that
change which must como, sooner or later.
We should not suffer tho sword of our spi?
rits to rust within ns. Wo must resist the
corroding influence ol the policy of the
hour. We must repel thc blandishments
aud seductions of temporary corrupt power.
Wo must not participate in tho sceues upon
which we uro compelled to look. A lofty
dignity, astern integrity, unflinching nerve,
a ml uvoidauce of thc touch of those moral
aud social lepers, as of death itsolf, aro re?
quired of every man who values his own
character, or that of tho country.
The world hart been amazed at the recu?
perative power of tho Southern States. A
people who produce cotton to the amount of
$250,000,000 a year, cannot long bc without
frieuds-caunot long romain under such
rule as accident, hate, fanaticism and envy
have combined to place over them. Lot UH,
then, be up and doing. Speed the plough,
whirl tho wheels, ring the axe. Let us wel?
come capital and population, diversify our
pursuits, and marshal iu order all tho ele?
ments and influences at our command.
Amongst tho instruments by which much
good might be dono, it strikes us that thc
organization of the agricultural with all
other cogo at o interests, would bo ono of tho
most effective. Labor is scarce, and unre?
liable. lt is largely disaffected, nnd per?
verse almost beyond endurance. We require
a fresh infusion of workers, moro available
muscle, and more willing spirits. The pro?
position made in theso columns, some weeks
since, by a correspondent, to form District
Agricultural Societies, nod to hold a State
Agricultural Convention, was well received
by the press of tho State, aud evidently met
tho cordial approval of tho public. It only
roun.ins that soino of our practical and
experienced planters and manufacturers
should take thc mutter in hand. We hope
to hear from our friends Seaborn, Gage,
Aiken, Evans, Creswell, Palmer, und others,
upon this point. Shall such convention bo
held? Is there any good likely to como of
it? We think so, aud earnestly advocate it
as a measure of conservatism, aa well as for
its more legitimate and proper effects.
MANGOLD WUIITZEL.-Mangold wu rizel

A FBBNOHY-AMEBIOAH AFFAIR.-A subject j
of town talk in -Paris is an elopement,
which caused great exoitement io fashiona?
ble circles. There are two versions current.
According to' the first, the son of Count
d'Aquila (the ex-King of Naples' uncle) has
been so deeply impressed with the charms
of a fair American beauty, yet iu her teous,
that he has run away with ber. Another
version is that the young lady and her
mamma, whose pecuniary position is said
not to bo brilliant, have run away with this
youthful and amorous Bourbon. On dit,
that a marriage baa been hastily celebrated,
and that the fugitives, under the wing of
this ambitions mamma, aro now plowing
their way across tho Atlantic, love-sick and
sea-sick. Cotiut d'Aquila bas put an em?
bargo on tho fugitives ns regards French
trans-A t lant io packets, and is understood,
moreover, to have telegraphed to Scotland
Yurd for advice, assistance and a detective.
At a Into ball of tho opera, according to
the Paris Charavnri, a yellow dt mino was
observed to act in a singular manner. Bow?
ing to every Indy iu u black or rose domino,
ho kissed bor hand respectfully and retired
without saying a weld, but making a noto
in his tabloki. Tho mob, very much inte?
rested in all this, followed yellow domino
about, laughing heartily. Yellow domino
was, however, ono of the most distinguished
editors in Paris, who was engaged iu tho so?
lution of a great social problem. It waa
this: How many pairs of new gloves are
worn to night at this opera mask? And he
found that, of 356 which ho had smelt at,
under pretence of kissing, there were only
eighteen which had uo aroma of benzine, or
which had not been cleaned.

startling diaries About tao Filibusters.
There are notntny persons ia Oharleatoa
who are now, or who have been engagod in
the Onba trude, tba? great interest boa been
shown in regard to everything that relates
to the progresa of tho Cuban insurrection.
Wo cannot say that the popular feeling Ino*
altogether been on the sido of the "rebels,"
for men hnvo cont ras ted the merciless man?
ner in which tho Southern "rebela" were
treated, with tho expressions of profuse
symputhy which tho North cnn find for "tho
rebols" in Cuba and Grete. Yet there lias
been a restlessness among tho people which
betokens tho awakeuiug of the old spirit of
adventure and romance. This is particu?
larly tho casa among tho young men, and
for weeks past it 1ms been rumored that ex?
peditious in aid of tho Cuban insurrection?
ists were fitting out on thc Georgia and Ca?
Wo have not been able tu nbtuin such
information as would justify 113 in saying
positively that any of theso expeditious
liavo actually roached their destination. In?
deed, n too grost publicity would awaken
tho vigilance of the Spanish spies, und make
a successful landing difficult to any but such
men us those who ran tho blockade of
Charleston so often during tho late un?
pleasantness. Wo may, however, without
compromising any one, say that Captain
Frank Bonncnu, ono ol' our most skillful
mariners and bravest men, has safely arrived
in Cuba. Of bim, no moro must bu saul at
A few days ago ooma surprise was excited
by tho arrival in Charleston of General Jor
dau, formerly chief of .staff of General Beau?
regard. This officer moved about very
quietly, aud no suspicions as to his real ob?
ject were entertained until it waa found that
ho had disappeared from tho city. Tho re?
port is-anil wa have no reason to doubt its
correctness:-that General Jordan has sailed
But this is not all. From what has leaked
out since the departure of General Jordan,
it is understood that he is in full accord with
President G taut, and is acting with his
knowledge und consent. Thc new President
has already said that Sp lin is entitled to no
consideration at the hands of tho United'
States, and ho is known to bu strongly iu
favor of tho acquisition of moro territory.
Cuba would bo a dainty mors.;1 for tho radi?
cals. There would bo half a million of ne?
groes to vote, and legislate, aud play "Old
Harry" with tho prosperity of the island;
and there would be as many white men to
rule by martial law, to New Kuglandize, and,
finally, to reconstruct. No wonder that
Grant should bo iu favor of acquiring Cuba.
It is true that there may be a lion in the
path, but au excuse can be found for thc
suspension of diplomatic relations. This
could not better bo douo than on the plea
that Spain was insulting and injuring Ame?
rican citizens. This may be the reason why
General Jordan, it is said, has been assured
by President Graut that if he falls iuto tho
hands of the Spaniards no hair of his hoad
shall bo injured, and that no American who
takes part in tho insurrection shall bo im?
properly treated by the loyalists.
This is tho 6tory ns it comes to ns, and wo
should not bo surprised if there were moro
startling developments in the course of tho
next few weoks. - Charleston News.
THE GROTTO OK GEMS.-World-famed
Antiparos; tho Grotta Aturra in Capri, on
tho Bay of Naples; tho salt mines of Salz?
burg, and even tho wondrous excavations of
Monto Christo, must yield tho palm for
splendor, if all that wc hear from Guttanen,
iu Switzerland, be true. Tho marvellous
cavern lately discovered near tho Glacier o?
Pieflen is not of hugo dimensions, being
only forty-fivo feet iu length, sixteen in
height at tho entrance, and twelve at thc
inner extremity, and twenty-six feet in
breadth. It was found at a height of IOC
feet, in an almost inaccessible wall of rock.
By severo and prolonged labor, which ob
liged tho men at work to remain eight day.?
and nights among the glaciers, some of tin
most superb topazes in existenco were ox
traded from thc entrance of tho cavo,
These had then to be carried ns far as Furca
and thence lowered by ropes, at a height ol
.1,000 feet above tho level of tho sea.
Ono mau, conveying a block that weighei
110 pounds, fell into a crevasse 130 feet deep
His body was recovered ten hours later, bu

But a less dangerous passage* has been dis
covered, and by means of a series of step
and sledges descendiug on inclined planes
tho massive blocks can now be lowered mor
easily. This remarkable windfall had en
riched tho whole village of Guttanen; fo
tho entire population worked, and aro st il
worknig, to extract tho gems. But, afte
all their terrific trouble and (langer in pre
curing the topazes, many of these poor toil
ing mountaineers were arrested by Govern
mont and their treasure confiscated, th
grotto being situated on tho Alpine rang
between the cantons of Berne and Un

"Wo learn that tho deceased was nu old

Tho great Lifo Insurance Company of the
United States is tho National, of which Jay
Cooke ?fe Co. are tho General Agents, Wash?
ington. Compared with other big compa?
nies, it is destined soon to be the moo EST
company in tho country. Why? Because
its growth and popularity, measured in its
infancy, warrants it. They havo issued, in
five months, nearly 4,000 policies, embra?
cing a sum insured of upwards of $18.000,
000, and tho applications daily increasing.
Another reason is, that the plan of the Na?
tional is thc correct ene, tho cheapest ono,
tho most liberal one; secures the largest
amount for tho sum paid ; uo fictitious or
distant dividends declared to duz/.le tho im?
agination with its glittering promises, but
gives you a cash dividend iu hand before
you start. How? A young clerk, ago
twenty, pays $12.95 a year, and secures a
policy in tho National for $1,000. In other
companies he pays $19.89-n difference of
$0.94, or a cash dividend of over fifty-two
per cent. This difference will enable him
to take ont a policy for $500 more; KO that,
should bc die, his family scenics $1,500,
and pay no moro premium than other com?
panies charge for $1,000. This don't look
like, what is supposed by some to bo the
case, that tho company divido all tho profits
among themselves. Why, tho fact is, they
givo you a dividend before it is due-in ad?
vance-and no contingent operation of ma
kiuy a profit is dependent upon it. Insure
