"Sigma," tbe correspondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial, in a recent letter
given the following account of Mn.
Grant's relatives who have been brought
into notico by the recent Presidential
In the argot of the "ring" and "sport"
there are many expressive phrases. Tho
"light," or "feather weights," nro among
them. They are picturesque terms, il?
lustrating their meaning by their pound,
even. We aro threatened with a family
of this nature. Families in Democratic
influences are always obstacles. Now, in
that of the one referred to, it is the num?
ber of its members that make it formida?
ble. It is certainly better to be born
iucky than rich. The old proverb is
forcibly illustrated in the case of the
family of the estimable lady who now pre?
sides at the White House. A New Eng?
land Senator is credited with the honor
embodied in a reference to General Dent,
"as only a dent," and therefore not to bc
noticed. But, with all their family con?
nections, there are so many Dents, thal
it is not altogether improper to considei
them as sui generis. They are not un?
like the Blairs in one respect-that oi
attaching themselves to the publie crit
-but they aro very different in the in
tellectnal measure, by which cither mus!
Visitors to the White House will no
tice, seated daily in tho large ante-cham
ber into which callers go, a portly, wei
? preserved, hale old man, whose whit?
I head and ruddy face tells of good li vin?
I and florid health. He always ocoupie:
r an arm-chair, close to the North-east win
dow, which is next to tho desk occupiec
k by tho "card-bearer in ordinary.'
I Around the old gentleman aro always t<
I be seen a number of listeners, paying rc
spootfal attention to his garrulous bu
I not senile gossip. The fact that ho i
the father-in-law of tho Prendent nc
I counts for most of the attention bestow
\ ed upon him. "Colonel," as the old gen
i / tleman is called, is a well-preserved spe
I cimen of the hearty, yet chivalric, piar
ter of half a century's experience. H
was a slaveholder during that period, an
judging by the little stories in circule
tion, had all the good natured contenir,
for the tanner family whose sou morrie
I into his own. I doubt not it was deeu
T ed, in paternal circles, a great lowerin
of the family dignity to allow Jese
' Grant's sou, army officer though he wai
to marry their daughter.
The males of the family I have sec
do not appear to take after the fat he
Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Sharpe resemh
him most closely. He has a large f nun
and large head KISO. The two best know
Dents here are thin and spare in fram
wit h small heads, narrow, long ari
sharp faces. Lieutenant Dent-Goner

about Grant's age. He is the fussiest i
all mortals, in manner and appearanc
Emphatically "airy" in style, his bra

j I have seen him walking the street, <
i strutting in the ante-chamber, when 01
I could read in all his actions os the su
I total of his thoughts: "Look at me! A

can only reach the President th rn nf.
me. I am eyes and ears for his Exe*
louey, and, in faot. am bel" I wasgoii
to say that the "General" was arroga
to most, but sycophantic to some,
must be said to his credit, however, th
after all his arrogance, he is no respect
of persons, as witness the dislike
many Senators to him. General Dent
' about five feet ten, sparo frame, sm
head and sharp features, weather-beat
in hue, and a general expression of soi

Judge Louis Dent is a man of mc
pleasing appearance, as he has need
be to impress the people of Mississip]
as their future Governor should. He
a lawyer, r man with some humor, wi
considerable mental activity, though
doubt the originality or breadth. He
a small man in stature, less in heip
than Grant, of slender, well-knit fran

Judge Dent is the best specimen
the family I have seen. Ho was f<
merly n pinn ter aud Blave-holder in M
sissippi, and being a Union man, 1
during the rebellion. He is undonbtet
a moderate Republican, but nmbitk
enough to allow himself to bo used
those who ore not. His first idea was

to have boen parceled out in advan
Dr. Sharpe, United States Marshal
this District, is a brother-iu-law of 1
Dents, as is also Colonel Casey, Coll
tor nt New Orleans. Sharpe is a man
respectable ability, yet is really p
sessed by an iden that he can be oleo
to the United States Senate by a Vii
nia Legislature, of whom about si:
members have served in the rebel ar
or held office under tho Confedera
Thoy won't do anything half so dece
and so he had better not lay the "flat
ing unction to his soul." There is i
another brother, who holds, under G
Rawlins' appointment, a sort of gem
sutlership to the posts in Gen. Sc
field's department. He lately boasted in
New York that ho was making moro
money than any other member of the
family, and the newspapers knew nothing
Tho President's own family does not
seem very troublesome. The business
of obtaining and using patronage seems
in this, ns in other administrations, to
be monopolized by tho brother-in-law.
Coolie Lulior at thu Som li.
The Legislature of Tennesseo provided
for an Emigration Commission, and Rev.
Hormaun Boknm is iu our city in tho ca?
pacity of Commissioner. His views as
to the real need of tho South are correct.
They do not accord with tho movement
toward China for laborers. He says that
the trouble with the South has been the
want of a solid middle clans. There had
been until very lately the aristocracy of
planters and slaveholders on tho one
hand, and the slaves and ignorant poor
whites on the other. No middlo cir., s
hod existed to carry forward progressive
ideas and insure social and political sta?
bility. Hence tho war and the great debt
that now oppresses the nation. Mr. Bo?
kam properly regards tho efforts now be?
ing made to obtain millions of coolies as
unfortunate, since they are calculated to
supply tho place of the late slaves on the
plantations, and to prevent tho building
up of the much-needed middle class.
Ho says that the Germans of Tennessee
will array themselves against these now
attempts to virtually re-establish slavery,
and it is to be feared that tho Chinese
question will become ono of great mag?
nitude and embarrassment throughout
the whole country.
Mr. Bokam'8 labors are in behalf of
the middle class in Tennessee. Ho de?
sired to strengthen it by inducing Ger?
mans, Irish and Americans of solid cha?
racter to emigrate to that State, and to
enjoy the advantages which tho recon?
struction of her social system and the
consequent development of her resources
will afford. He will extend his opera?
tions to Europe, for tho purpose of in?
ducing many to embark with Tennessee
for their destination. From 1850 to 1860
the average number of emigrants was
260,000 per annum, and for the past
three years it has been about 300,000.
It is estimated that they bring with them
monoy and other effects to the average
value of $100 each, and the produotivo
capacity of every able-bo fted immigrant
is worth at least $900. If we receive
100,000 able-bodied immigrants per year,
the increaso of national wealth from this
source amounts to 8100,000,000 per an?
num. Tho averago value of tho labor of
Massachusetts, by tho census of 1860,
was 8220 per capita, including men," wo?
men and children. This would make
over 300,000 immigrants, worth $66,
000,000 a year. These immigrants would
give to the South a substantial middlo
class, and wo hope for Mr. Bokam tho
greatest sncoess in his work.

VIRGINIA-HER PROSPECTS BRIGHTEN?
ING.-The New York Journal of Com?
merce refers thus hopefully to Virginia's
immediate and futuro prospects:
"Richmond papers note a decided im?
provement in real estate prospects since
the election. Sufficient timo has not yet
elapsed for effects to show themselves,
ont it may be judged from many indica?
tions that there will soon bo an increased
demand for Virginia lands. Some peo?
ple nave doubts about the recognition of
Virginia as a State under tho Walker
government, bnt these will probably not
be realized. After some little opposi?
tion from extreme radicals, Virginia will
be let in, and her Senators and Repre?
sentatives will take their seats. In an?
ticipation of these events, movements to
emigrate to the old Stato aro now on foot
in several parts of the North. A num?
ber of-gentlemen in New Jersey aro
spoken of as having organized and ap?
pointed a committee to go to Virginia,
and inspect lands offered them by Gene?
ral Imboden, tho immigration agent of
the State. They intend to buy farms of
from 500 to 1,000 acres apiece, if prices
and other conditions aro favorable. From
the reconstruction of Virginia ou a con?
servative basis will dato thc era of a re?
newed prosperity, greater perhaps than
she has ever enjoyed before."
Tho following obituary uotice recently
appeared in a Spauish journal: "This
morning our Saviour summoned away
the jeweler, Siobnld Illtnaga, from his
shop to another and a better world. Tho
undersigned, his widow, will weep upon
his tomb, as will also his two daughters,
Hilda and Emma, tho former of whom
is married, and tho latter open to an
offer. Tho funeral will take placo to?
morrow. His disconsolate widow, Ve?
ronique Illmaga. P. S.-This bereave?
ment will not interrupt our business,
which will bo carriod on as usual, only
our place of business will be removed
from No. 3 Tessi de Teisnturiers to No.
4 Rue de Missionaire, as our grasping
landlord has raised tho rent."
The Mills House will bc opened about
tho middlo of October.

To the People of South Carolina :
Tho abovo Company waa organized in 186G,
in consequence of tho wholosalo forfeiture of
Southern policies by Northern companies. Thc
unparalleled success of tho enterprise has
forced several of these companies to restore
their Southern policies, from the fact that they
could not operate in our midst without the ap?
pearance of honesty.
Wc keep all our money at home to build up
our impoverished country-every dollar of
proir um beiug safely invested in tho State
from which it is dorived. Tho iustitution is
purely Southern, and hence should appeal
with great force to tho patriotism aud sympa?
thy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to mako war on other
companies, but to exhibit tho special advan?
tages oiTered by this purely Southern Compa?
ny-founded on patriotism and Bolid wealth.
Its ratio of assets to liabilities-tho truo test
of a company's strength, is second to nono on
this continent-being nearly 300 to 100.
Whenever and wherever we have presented
the claims of this Company, it has not only
enlisted tho sympathies of our people, tint hat
also secured their hearty co-operation. Wc
havo secured 500 policies in Soxth Caroline
since tho 10th of February. We numbei
among our Directors Qou. Wado Bampton ant
Col. Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well known t<

BUMMER PERILS-HOW TO ESCAP
THEM.-It will not do to trifle with the heal
in hot'weathcr. Vigor oozes through the sk
at evory pore, and it is by physical vigor ou
that unhealthy influences can bo baffled ai
repelled. The vital clements are ?vaporai
in perspiration. Intense heat couverts a m
into a self-acting pump, and tho moisture tb
is pumped out of him is derived from thc wc
springs of lifo within him. There is a gre
need, therefore, that these sources of physic
strength should be in a condition to bei
without danger or inconvenience, the ext rai
dinary drain. If they are not in such a con
tum, the individual becomes languid aud lo
Tho main thing is to keep the digestive i
paratuB iu good working trim; for if tho a
mach, tho purveyor of the system, does
duty thoroughly, the liver, the bowels, I
brain, and tho nervous system, being di
nurtured, will be likely to do theirs. In vi
of these facts, it is manifest that a power
and wholesome vegetable tonic like IICSTI
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS ia especially
quired at thia enfeebling season. It is the m
admirable of all correctives and invigorar
and for this reason -it does not over-stimul
the system. The proportions of aperient, to
and stimulating components are so judiciou
graduated, that the processes of invigorat
and purification go on simultaneously, and
undue excitement is created in the circul?t
or tho brain. All undedicated stimulai
