COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tues lay Horning, September 19,1871.
Mons SxBAiaNO.-It was only tho
other day that the Comptroller of tho
United States Treasury officially admitted
that $1,000,000 of notes had been issued
by the Treasurer "without any record of
their denominations or numbers." Tho
statements of tho publio debt, says the
Washington Patriot, made by the Secre?
tary of the Treasury and the Treasurer,
exhibits a discrepancy of 8110,000,000.
And it is notorious, says the same autho?
rity, that the books of the Register and
the Beoretary cannot be balanced by
many millions. Following npon these
revelations we ?have tho defalcation in
the Now York post office, of Mr. John
W. Notion, in the sum of $115,000.
And now wo have the startling discovery
that there has boen a defalcation in tbo
War Department to tho amount of
$150,000. Maj. Hodge, tho guilty party,
was ono of tho paymasters in tho War
Department. He lins made a full con?
fession in a lotter addressed to Gen. 13.
W. Brice, tho Paymaster-General. Ho
"SIR: I have to inform you that lam
unable to oloso my accounts, and that I
owe the frightful-amount of about $150,
-000, whloh sum I have lost during thc
last few years in stock speculations,
going dooper and dooper, in tho hopo of
retrieving myself. I have no excuse or
mitigation of my crime to offer, and pro?
pose to take tho full oonsequences of my
sin. Thad thought a week ago of escap?
ing from New York, but believe I have
done better in returning here to deliver
myself np, as I felt I was going to do.

frightful information will kill. God for?

Tun Dax GOODS TBADE.-According
to the Kow York Post, the fall trade
opona with an activity which has had no
parallel since 1805 and '60. Tho causes
are the foot that last year our exports
were larger in value than during any
previous year of our national existenoe.
After supplying our own wants, we have
been ablo to spare to our foreign con?
sumers about $100,000,000 worth of cot?
ton, breadstnfTs, petroleum, provisions,
timber, ka. The States and Territories
of tjhe Faoifio slope, too, have produced
more than $80,000,000 in bullion. Still
another important cause is the influence
ot the late French and Gorman war,
whioh, oariouB.y enough, is now felt for
tho first time in the regular industry of
two mighty nations comprising 80,000,
000 of people, whose trade was inter?
rupted for nearly a whole year. This
foot we have noticed heretofore in con?
nection with the large forcigu demand
for our breadstuff*; and now foreign
goods having become somowhnt soarco
in our mnrket on account of tho war,
the Post says:
"Tho result here is a wide-spread
necessity for replenishing stock. Dur?
ing the last month, tho necessity has
been shown in a renitrkably strong
demand by both Western and East?
ern merchants. Foreign dress goods
of all kinds are sold freely, ob icily to
Western and Eastern buyers. Very
small amounts of desirablo goods are
. sold at anotiou, owing to the fact that
the foreign consignment trado has al
.most ceased to exist since tho reoout
"The greatest difficulty exists in pro?
curing suitable foreign goods. Manu?
facturers both in England and on the
continent are under engagements for
from six to twelve weeks ahoad, and in
some instaaces, both ia Switzerland and
Alsace, a soramble is made by buyors for
snail desirable lots' as may bo found
ready for market. There can bo no
doubt that/judging from appearauoes,
the stock of foreign goods io first hands
will bo insignificant by tho time at which
in other years the season has only fairly
"Among domestic dry go"bds, woolens
aro of great'importance. Owing to the
great rise in the price of wool, amount?
ing in tho average to about 10 per oent.,
this trade naturally shows less activity
than the foreign dry goods trade. Buy?
ers are supplying themselves sparingly,
at an average advance of about 15 per
cent, over tho prioes of last year. Never?
theless, the great commission houses and
merchants feel confident that present
?rices will be maintained, and as an evi
enoe, nearly all the woolen mills of the
country aro busy working on full time.
Tho weakost stock, perhaps, in this
branch, ie flannel. Yet upon tho whole
the trade is healthy. Domdatio ootton
goods are not in very great demand, yet
o< fair steady trade is done on an average
rise of 10 per cent, in price over that of

Tho treatment to whioh tho kelplesi

to avoid a difficulty, forbore taking an]

Tho last Pala!ka Herald has a letter from

says that on his wiiy from Orlando to

The safest pince ho thought would be on
tho crown of a high black jack ridge,
running parallel with thc rond, which he
accordingly took. After riding perhaps
a mile, his horse commenced boggiuguud
for some distauco it was questionable
whether bo could got through; ho, how?

DECLINE OF TIIE FEVER.-The tabular 1
statement printed in the News, of Friday
last, showed that there were^forty-aeven
deaths from yellow fevor, from July 25,
to September 9, inclusivo. Another
week is past, and niuo deaths aro added
to the list, viz: Two on Soptomber 12,
three on September 13, one on Septem?
ber 14, two on September 15, and ono on
September 10. It is possible, but ex?
tremely improbable, that ono or two
deaths, occurring between September 9
and September 1(3, aro not yet reported
to tho city registrar; but, as tho count
stands, wo have a total of only fifty-six
deaths from tho 25th of July, wheu the
first death from yellow fever took place,
up to Saturday last. A glance at tho an?
nexed fabio will show that the heaviest
mortality this year was iu the week end?
ing September 2, when thero were twen?
ty-one deaths. But in 1854 the greatest
mortality was in tho week culling Sep
tetnbor ?6, and in 185G, iu tho week cull?
ing September 30, aud iu 185S, in the
week euiliug September IS. This would
Seem to suggest that tlie earliness of the
present season, as showu by thu ooo!
woather, has put us so far forward that
there is no danger whatever of any con?
siderable increase in tho number of
deaths. On tho contrary, wo have gocd
reasou to believe that the mortality will
steadily diminish, and by tho cud of O o
mouth will be insignificant. Charleston
has a population of nearly 50,0i?0, and
wo have only niuo deaths from fever in
au entire week. Tho epidemic is asto?
nishingly mild in character, and Charles?
ton, in spite of tho fever, is one of the
healthiest cities in the Union.
