There is something vary assuriug in
the calm and philosophical tone with
wLioh the Mississippi papers discuss tho
osases and probable effects of the recent
radical triumph. With remarkable ac?
cord and uniformity of testimony, they
attribute the defeat of the popular will
to the iniquitous eombination of fraud
aud vi ole hoe arranged by Ames and his
minions. Despite the discouraging pros?
pect before them in a radical ad ministra?
tion of peculiar grievances, the Missis?
sippians, true to the fame of their State,
repel the promptings of despair, and,
eonsequeutly, look forward to their early
redemption from ? radical sway. With
sud i a spirit as animates the press of
Mississippi, prevailing throughout the
South, radicalism would soon dud that
it had counted without its host in de?
pending upon . the reconstructed States
for the tatiintenaoce of its ascendancy.
THE REASON WHY.- The United States
may bluster, but a foreign war with a
first ?lass power is by no means desira?
ble. The Secretary of the Navy tells
the reason why. His report shows thut,
out of forty-six iron-clads and monitors,
thirty-two have been condemned and
sold. He likewise announces that many
other vessels are entirely unsuited for
naval purposes. So, not only have the
radicals destroyed the merohaut marine
of the country, but, iu spite of many
millions spent, they have not armed ships
enough to protcot the coast, iu case of a
fight with France or England.
Ia one of his late letters to the Cin?
cinnati Commercial, Don Piatt very
pointedly reminds the readers of that
journal that "the oheapest philanthropy
is that which frees somebody else's nig?

instead of to the South, is there any one
simple enough to believe that we would
have bad a war of emancipation! Not

THE PHOSPHATE MONOPOLY. -The
Charleston pnpors-the IVetcs and the
Courier-have followed up the exposure
first made in theso columns, of the phos?
phate monopoly whioh it is attempted to
consummate in tbe present Legislature
for the benefit of certain persons. It is
a gross outrage, and violation of public
right. The Courier well Bays:
"As was well said by one of tbe Em?
perors of Rome, when requested to affix
his name to an odict of his exclusive Im?
perial possession, he answered: "These
were not his property, but the common
publio estate of every Roman." But if
tho S'nte hos the power tho course tobe
pursued is plain-it is to grant no mono?
poly, but to acknowledge the right of
every citizen or corporation, to dig these
deposits from its navigable waters, re?
quiring, if it please Bucb a royalty, a tax,
as will contribute to the common sup?
port or benefit. As it is now, these phos?
phate are tho oom m on property of all
who have the enterprise and the energy
to secure them, and therefore are for the
common benefit. But the State hus no
right to confer a monopoly, and exolude
the body of the people from its benefits.
As the representative of tho people, even
if it possessed the power, the least it
could do would be to grant the privilege
to different persons, io different sections,
upou tho most advantageous terms, or to
admit the right of all upon the payment
of a certain royalty. But to grant to a
certain number the exclusive and single
right of taking from the bed of the navi?
gable streams the phosphates which are
to be found upon their bed, it has no
more legal right than to grant to any in?
dividual the exclusive right of fishery in
their waters, to the thrusting out of every
other citizen of the State. The earnest
endeavor of all should be to foster and
encourage enterprise, and to produoe the
greatest benefit for the common good."
ROYALTY IN THE EAST.-The fashion of
traveling iu the East, which was so mag?
nificently inaugurated by the Empress
Eugenie, has been followed by other
Royal personages. The Crown Prince
of Prussia has jost visited Jerusalem,
and, after visiting the church of the Holy
Sepulchre, and brandishing the sword of
Godfrey de Bouillon, which is one of the
relics there, he visited the celebrated
Mosque of Omar. On thc following day
he attended the English ohuroh and par?
took of the Sacrament, and then pro?
ceeded to take possession of a grant
made by the Sultan to his father for the
erection of a German church. The Em?
peror of Austria has just visited tho
Holy Land also. He is the first Emperor
who has done so for G90 years, the last
one being Frederick II, of Germany, who
took the city of Jerusalem from the Mos?
lems about the year 1230. Francis
Joseph went in great stato and with a
fleet, and, disembarking, visited Bethle?
hem and other localities mentioned iu
j Biblical history. Tho prosence of these
members of Royal houses iu the East
has been construed into having some po?
litical and diplomatic importance. The
East is now more accessible than it has
ever been, aud traveling in the Holy
i Land is not attended with as many dis?
comforts ns formerly, as good dragomen
can always bo obtained, and safe trans?
portation on the outside of a well-dis?
posed horse or camel.
COMMENDABLE INDUSTRY.-We are in?
formed that Mrs. Elizabeth Howell, of
this County, aged eighty-six years, has
spun, during tho year, yarn sufficient to
make 200 yards of cloth. During the
lost five years, it is supposed she has
spun more than enough to make 1,500
yards. All honor to this instance of en?
ergy and industry, which continues its
usefulness beyond foar-score.
The Texas Times says: "It is some?
thing remarkable that, whenever the co?
lored people want to get np a ball or fair,
they invariably apply to their employers
for aid and advice, whioh they always
receive; but when they want to know
how to vote, they seek advice from the
office-seeking adventurers who study only
their own personal interests."
Tho King of Bavaria is eminently
fitted for Ins throne, by reason of two or
three epileptic convulsions a day. His
only draw-back is that, instead of keep?
ing his crown on his throne, he is some?
times thrown on his crown.

hood of Homo lady travelers in the Yose?

persons to whom it is desired to make a

observation and tact, and the pleasure of

instance, a small writing desk, a tiny
flower stand of curiously carved wood or
quaint glass, glove box, a rare aod onrions
book, or the poems of some great poet, a
picture or a piece of statuary, a ?tot of
the works of some standard author, a

PERIODICALS.-Tho January number of
the Galaxy, pnblishod by Sheldon A Co.,
498 and 500 Broadway, New York, is bo

cludes a new story from Mrs. Edwards,
the author of "Susan Fielding," "Archie
Lovell," etc.; a series of "Editor's

noteworthy articles on historical subjects
by Parke Godwin; critical and social
essays by Riobard Grant White; critical
analyses of prominent individuals in
politics, science and letters, by Justiu

Ecclesiastic of the Roman Catholic
Church, in which he will give personal
recollections of tho interior life of Rome;
a unique series of papers dealing trench?

be a comprehensive monthly review of
the literature of tho world.* Subscrip?

For beauty of typography, artistic en?
gravings, and high-toned literary arti?
cles, together with a, large and beautiful
display of the fashions, DemoresCs
Monthly Magazine is certainly unsur?
passed. The January number, just re?
ceived, in addition to unusual holiday
attractions, has a fine steel portrait of
both Mr. and Mme. Demurest. The
rich display of novelties offered in Demo
rests's Mont??y would seem to be enough
to secure a circulation sufficient to satisfy
its publishers; but io addition we see they
proposo to give a very large and fine en?
graving to each subscriber, valued at $10.
The engraving alone would make a very
appropriate holiday or birth-day gift; but
when added to tho costly picture the
parlor magazine is included, to be a
monthly reminder of the friendly feeling
of tho giver, thoro is certainly no better
way of investing 83. Address DemoresCs

young folks are in ecstaoics over it. The

There is promise made that tho editor

The meeting, last evening, of this Asso?

were opened with prayer by thc Rev. Dr.
Reynolds. Mr. A. C. Haskell, the Pre?
sident of the Association, then arose,
and, after announcing the absence, on
account of illness, of Professor Carlisle,
the lecturer of the evening, proceeded,
io a olear and effective way. to explain
tho scope, the spirit and the purposes of
the Young Men's Christian Association.
He asked for it tho sanction and approval
of woman, as mother, wife, sister and
daughter, and he claimed for it the sup?
port and consideration of all good citi?
zens. Mr. Haskell's remarks, pervaded
as they were by a high religious and
moral tono, touched the sympathies ol
his hearers. To us the speaker presented
aa interesting spectacle. He was one
who had led his troops along the fiery
pathway of the battle-field, and whe
bears upon his person the honorable scan
of war and of gallantry in tho fight.
Now he was in peace, still doing his State
service-leading our young mea ia thf
paths of virtue aad religion. These are
tba mea of whom the community maj
well be proud. They serve us in war.
They serve ns io peace. Audit is raeu
like Haskell, and those of the samt
stamp, who serve to keep alive the spiril
of patriotism and virtue. Wo heartily
