Th? ?soutu Oar Only Hope.
"All classes of our people bave a common
interest in the prosperity -ef the South. An?
other season's good crops in that section bf
the country will do more to place the nation
in a condition to resume specie payments
than all the th?ories of politicians, or tho
long-drawn out wisdom of Congress.
Through much distress and misery the
South, in spite of politicians and the blun?
ders of legislators, xs now entering upon a
new and substantial career of prosperity,
that may soon eclipse the glories of thu
West and North."
[New York'Commercial, (radical organ.)
There is a great deal more truth in this
than radical organs are in the habit of tell?
ing. The country must depend chiefly upon
thc rich crops and the general prosperity of
the Southern States for its ability to main?
tain thc Govornment aud to resnmo specie
payments. With large crops in tho South,
everything will go on well throughout the
Union; without such crops, only bankrupt?
cy and rain are before us. The nation's
true and ohief hope must rest upon thc
South; it can repose nowhere else securely.
Now, whilst all this is undeniably true, and
whilst even the radicals of tho North and
their Senators and Representatives in Con?
gress must and do know it to be true, how
can they get their own consent to keep up
their interminable and relentless warfare
against .the South, using ovory conceivable
means to render her negro population worse
than useless; to destroy her labor; to render
all her plans of industry unavailing, and to
blight the whole surface of her land as with
frost or fire? If, as the Louisville Courier
S'Surnal intimates, tho Northern radicals
were guided by wisdom and prudence, if
they permitted their course to be regulated
even by an onlightenod self-interest, would
they not, instead of seeking to crush the
Southern Statos, scrupulously cherish them
as tho country's best and surest reliance for
deliverance from thc dark fate that threat?
REPRIEVE OF CYKUS COACHMAN.-Just as
we expected, Cyrus Coachman, colored,
convicted at the last term of our court, of c
most deliberate, cold-blooded and bruta
murder-a morder which, in the language
of Judge Rutland, "exceeded in brutality
auy ho had ever heard or read of," has beei
reprieved, rle was sentcuced to be executet
on next Friday. Gov. Scott fixes the exe
oution for the 18th Juuc.
Why should we bo surprised? It wu:
ouly a white man Coachman killed. Hov
long is this mockery of justice, this couu
tenancing of murder, this encouragement o
outrages upon white people, to bo endured
The New York Express says: "Tho high
est store rent paid in Broadway is that o
E. S. Jaffray's dry goods store, corner o
Leonard street, which brings $00,000. Th
highest hotel rent is that of tho Fifth Avo
noe, which rates at $100,000 per annum
but tho most profitable of all its edifices i
Trinity building. This is occupied b
offices. It cost about $200,000, and rent
for nearly one-half that sum. Siuglo office
bring from $1.000 to $2,000, and the cot
trade is almost entirely done there."

THB RETURN OF THE PALMETTO KS-RE- |
OEPTION BY THE INDEPENDENTS.-After a de?
cidedly pleasant trip to .Charleston, the
Palmettoes returned yesterday afternoon,
and were met at the depot by the Inde
pc_ "ont:*, who manned tho ropes of the
maciiino of their returning fellow-citizens,
and, under the marshalship of P. Brown,
Esq., preceded by tho fine bnnd attached
to tho post, (Leader Renaler,) mnrched
through the principal streets to tho Pal?
metto engine house, where the apparatus
was housed. The lino was thou re-formed,
and marched to tho Independent's Hall,
where they were received by tho Mayor
and Aldermon; and his Honor addressed
them as follows:
GENTLEMEN: It has been assigned to me,
to perform a very pleasing and grateful
duly-that of welcoming tho return to thoir
uutive city aud fire-sides, the officers au J
members of the Palm'-ito Engine Company,
who, upon invitation, took purt iu the exer?
cises at tho Mayor's parade, iu thc "City by
the Sea," on the 27th inst., and we, your
fellow-citizeus, have heard with unfeigned
pleasure, the results of your mission-your
great success in the undertaking-for it is
no common victory you have gained. You
liad many and very serious disadvantages to
couteud with-a strange city; thc local use
of water for the purpose quito novel to
most of you; thc handling of the suction
hose, something that you were altogether
unaccustomed to; the rough streets. All
these things taken into consideration, I as?
sert, that you have, by your prowess anil
zeal ou the occasion, conferred on your
company a lasting and honorable name,
and have added another crown of laure! to
those already won by tho fire department
of the city-a voluuteer force, small in
numbers but great in deeds of manly dar?
ing and strong devotion in their attempts
to ^ave the property of the citizens from
the devouring element; in that you have
often been tried and never been found want?
ing. The duties of a fireman arc often
hazardous, trying and but poorly paid.
That, they look for in tho "well done! thou
good and faithful servant," and in the plau?
dits of their fellow-citizens. This is all they
have ever asked for; all they ever wished
for or desired. Thc duty performed hy
von, in>* brother firemen of the Pul met! u
Company, has boen performed with credit
lo yourselves and worthy of our fair city. J
take pleasure, in tho name of her citizens,
to thank you for the zeal displayed on thal
occasion. I thank you. in the name of youl
brother firemen, the officers and member*
of the Independent Fire Engine Coiupauy,
for jour efforts to keep unimpaired tin
lustro that has always shone conspicuous
over the department. I thank you, on be
half of the City Council, for jour efforts it
sustaining and perpetuating the fair fame o
our citizen fire department. In the nairn

welcome you back-a hearty aud hones

How TO RETAIN YOUTH AND BEAUTY.-It
isa matter of no little importance now-a
days, amoug men and women, to preserve
the bloom aud freshness of more youthful
days. Cosmetics and Parisian artifices will
never stay the furrowing plough-share of
time. External appliances cannot rejuve?
nate thc decayiug spirits of man or woman,
so long as they neglect to keep tho lamp of
lifo well supplied with pure blood. Some?
thing must bo done to quicken and vitalize
the inner man and supply the waste tissues
with pure blood, if you would preserve the
ruddy glow of health and beauty of youth.
HEINITSH'S QUEEN'S DELIGHT is the great
blood purifier and a beautifier, because it
removes by its invigorating and cleansing
properties, all blemishes, spots, pimples,
boils, eruptions. It purifies and beautifies.

A WnoNo IMTBESSION CORRECTED.--Many
persons believe that there is no value in any
thing that does not come from "tho North."
How humiliating! However, this impres?

beeu discovered, North or South, that pos?
sesses, iu so eminent a degree, the power of
eradicating from the system all foul distem?
per, us DR. TUTT'S SARAPARILLA AND

nature tu do this through ils own channels. It
is composed of vegetable substances alone,
every one of which grows on Southern soil.
It is the BLOOD PURIFIER OP THE AGE. A2i G
THE MAMMOTH CAVE-EXTRACT FROM A
PAIVATE LETTER.-* * * * * We
groped about for many hours in this won?
derful place. I never saw anything like it.
Tho freaks of nature displayed here aro very
strange, and strike tho beholder with awe.
But the air iu some parts of tho cave is closo
and stifling, and when we came out, I found
myself saddled with a terrible fever, which
entirely prostrated me. The physician had
never seen a case like it before, and no rome
dy ho prescribed seemed to do tho least
good. My lifo was despaired of. Mrs.
Wilson, with whom I was residing, had in
the house a bottle of PLANTATION BITTERS,
and she insisted I should try it, for she said
she knew it to bo a certain cure in all cases
of fever, debility, ague, dyspepsia, Sro. I
had but little fuith, but finally consented to
try it ns a last resort. In less than three
hours after the first dose, my fever left me;
in two days I was sitting up, and before
Saturday night, I was as well as over. I
tell you all this that you may know how to
act in any case of fever, or any similar dis?
ease. I firmly beliovo the PLANTAI ION BIT?
TERS saved my life. ***** In my
next I will iel! you ?bout the cave in detail.
