Wu learn that the committee of the
Board of Trade have been .allowed to
hovo access to tho plana and specifica?
tions of the City Hull and the new mar?
ket. In the Case of the City Hall, the
condition is annexed that Mr. Parkins
be present, and that the committee of
the Board of Trade pay his expenses to
Columbia. The committee of the Board
of Trade accepted the offer. Capt'. J.
C. Bellend Messrs. Pry and Troy-all ex
perieuoed builders-have boon requested
to assist the committee in making an
estimate of the now market.
Dir. James AI. Allcn'a Offer.
Mr. Allen called at this office, on yes?
terday, and stated that he authorized us
to say that ho would sell out his contract
for 825,000-thus meaniug, wo suppose,
to intimate that we had over-estimated
his "reserve fund" when wo put it at
860,000. We presume that Mr. Allen
would prefer to realize 825,000 cash
rathor than to incur the hazard and the
division involved in the carrying out of
his contract. To his brazen proposition
we have this to say: If his offurinvolved
loss, the acceptor would be u fool to take
it; if profil, then he would be amenable
to the same charges that now rest against
Mr. Allen. We, at least, have no desiro
to buy Mr. Allen ont. We hope to moko

like to put his feet in them.
What Are Yon Going To Do About Itt
Private liane of New City Bonds.
It is stated on the streets that Dr. J.
L. Neagle has now with him in New York
8250,000 worth of new bonds of this
oity, issued to him for tho loan of
875,000 to the City Council. These
bonds have been surreptitiously issued,
and, thus fur, no announcement of the
faot has been made by the authorities.
This transaction speaks for itself. The
public aro entitled to thc details 'of this
outrageous procedure Will the acting
Mayor enlighten the pablic? Do the
citizens of Columbia intend to be trilled

THE ENGLISH REPUBLIC.-The fate of
England has been disclosed to a London
correspondent of tho New York World
by tho head of the Republican party 'in
that country, the shrewd, serious, 'but
withal visionary Charles Bradlaugh.
According to this correspondent, Mr.
Bradlaugh declares himself now able to

ready to build up the. Republic; that
Victoria ia the last monarchy who shall
sit on the English throne; that ho dep?

he will be perfectly prepared for it, hot

down the guage to him he will pick it up.
THE COMMUNE IN NEW YORK.-There
are seven "sections" of the International
organized and working iu New York
oity, which consist exclusively of French?
men and French women. A diatiuotive
feature in these French organizations is
the admission of'women. This is not
done in the societies of other,nationali?
ties. The Courier des Etats Unis having
said a few days ago that the female
members, though allowed to vote, are
not allowed "to pronounce discourses,"
H. Charnier, the I Secretary, writes to
that paper to correct tho statement. .Tho
fadt is, that iii, the Trench sections

men, without distinction of race, oolor
or nationality, worn en.hoing a portion of
the laboring population, may, and ought
to be, not only admitted members of the
society, but to have there a deliberate
voice." It is u noticeable fact that these
French workmen settled in this country

American and Gorman laboring men do
not accept. By the fact some readers

too, hayo their immensely greater pro?
portion of upright, honest men, who
would no more think of conniving at

thau they would of robbing a till or
breaking into a house. Between tho
average honesty of one party aud that
of tbe other, uuder temptations, there
is little room for choice. Tbe revela?
tions of every day and hour should con?
vinco tbe most prejudiced mau that for
either party to accuse the other of all
the frauds, and to uphold its own snowy
purity, is as absurd as the pot twitting
tho kettle upon being black. In the
Federal Government it is men labeling
themselves Republicans who aro robbing
and defaulting right and left. Every
day is developing some new swindle
among paymasters, post office men and
other officials. All through the South,
carpet-baggers who call themselves "Rs

from the people. Not a Southern State

Much of their misdeeds is already

ultimate uncloaking of frauds in that
section may yet startle tho country like
the thunder-clap of the nstoundiug dis?
closures in New York. In Georgia, tho

pected tbat .some high officials in tbe

other so-called Republican State Govern?
ments in the South, equally, perhaps
moro, amazing discoveries may be made.
For thoso wrongs-the work of totally
unscrupulous demagogues, to whom
party titles are but a cloak and a simm
it would bo manifestly unjust to bold the
Republican party of tho whole country
responsible. They, us a mass, are uo
more to bo charged with such malfea?
sances than the D?mocratie party of this
State, as nu organization, is to bo ac?
cused of complicity in tbe New York
city and County swindles. Thoso out?
rages are in uosense whatever party ope?
rations. Republicans and Democrats have
all along been in the ring together aud
enjoyed the fruits of tbe common iniqui?
ty. The names of those most blackened
now in connection with the frauds of the
ring represent no higher i ufa my in these
very swindles than two or three well
known Republicans for many years in
the same ring. Tho plain people, the
voters, of both parties, have been fooled
by their crafty managers. It was the
duty of the voters to have prevented
snob men from riding into office on their
shoulders, and in the consequences of
the elections the voters uro not quit of
all responsibility; but we say,that neither
party in this oity is fairly abargeablo
with the local misgovernment, That is
the work of knavish or reckless indivi?
duals, who care nothing for Democratic

a liking for either in order that they may

EDITOB O? PHOENIX : Prosnrr"*"*- that a
brief lottor from thiB point will not be
without interest to nanny of your read?
ers, your correspondent bas Condensed
the following for y sur disposal.
The revival of trade, with the advent
of tho business season, has shortened
tho lengthened visages whioh our com?
mercial mon havo displayed during the
past almost unparalleled soason of hard?
ness depression. Kew orop oolloo, how?
ever, conlon in Blowly,- the receipts to
dato being littlo moro thnu e^Utl to twe
thirds of thoso for tho samo period lust
year. Plnutore, generally, manifest a
! disposition to hold off for better prices
thau tho ruling quotations, particularly
since the latu decline, and only sell to
cancel such obligations us may not bo
postponed, aud to' pr?vido themselves
with the funds necessary to secure extra
labor for gathering tho crop, otc. Ac?
counts from tho cotton districts within
range of Augusta, both iu Georgia and
South Carolina, gencrullyiudicutu u fall?
ing off iu tho product of one-third to
one-half, as compared with tho crop of
la?tyear. With this conviction, planters
aro strong iu tho faith of a speody re?
action in prices, and are protty generally
determined, whore ablo, to run a tilt with
speculators, by holding on to their cotton
until it hus touched tho figure of their
conception of its worth. As n conse?
quence of this, the general trade of the
city docs not exhibit quito its usual ani?
mation at this season, although little
complaint is indulged.
Angosta, like Columbia, bns au im?
portant canal interest to look after. The
subject of its enlargement, as a moans to
stimulate manufacturing enterprises
here, has beeu earnestly discussed for
more than two years by successive boards
af the City Council. Under our present
progressive administration, the project
luis assumed d?duite shape. A recent
thorough survey has been completed and
estimates of tho probable cost prepared.
Under resolutiou of the City Council,
tho citizeus will voto on tho question
next Weduesday, 4th of October. Ap?
parent au uro tho advantages to nccruo to
tho material prosperity of tho city, by
tho consummation of this great work, it
is not without its opponents, although
the indications aro that the City Coun?
cil will be authorized, by a largely ?ire
pondorntiog vote, to proceed with the
enterprise. Among tho immediate re?
sults of this further development of tho
immonse water power hero at hand will
bo the erection of n now (third) mill of
1U,0U0 spindles, by the Augusta Factory,
and tho addition of 5,001) spindles to ono
of its present mills.
The spirit of improvement iu Augusta
does not correspond, in activity, with
that exhibited iu Columbia, while there
are, nevertheless, many evidences that
the city is ou the eve of a "now depar?
ture" iu the lino of progress. Among
these evidences may bo mentioned the
multiplication of commercial houses
since the advent of the present season,
the erection of uew and remodeling of
old buildings for business purposes, the
establishment of a uew bank, and the
favorable consideration of railroad uud
other projects looking to tho material
advaucoment of the citj'.
Tho grund ovout of tho season, to
which our citizens uro looking with so
much of nouiidence and laudable ambi?
tion, will doubtless be the second an
ntinl Fair of the Cottou States Mecha?
nics' and Agricultural Fair Association,
whioh opens hereon the 31st of October.
The grouuds, already improved to a de?
gree of oouvenience and beauty second
to uoue iu the South, are being put io
the most complete preparation for the
occasion, a large force of workmen be?
ing daily omployed therein. The ener?
getic officers of the Association have de?
termined that this ensuing exposition
shall nob bo outstripped by any siaiilat
exhibition in tho cotton-growing region,
whether us regards tho inducements of?
fered exhibitors or the attractions pro?
vided for visitois. A large otteudunct
is anticipated from adjacent States, and,
iudeed, from remote sections. The pre?
mium list of tho Association is most li?
beral, amounting iu awards to $15,000
$4,000 on held crops-and admirably
arranged iu all its detuils. A font art
worthy of special reference is the purse;

?PABTANBUHO, 3. 0., Sup te LU bor 26.
MB. EDITOR: Bonding the pupers and
the reports of Congressional oom mittens,
you would suppose Spartanbarg was
aoy thing else th nu a peaceable commu?
nity. Yon would hardly thiuk that we
had timo to tarn-our attention to peace?
ful pursuits-to build houses aud rail?
roads. We ourselves know tho loast of
our troubles. When we want to koow
how bad we have been, wbut a thorn in
tho side of thu groat body politic, we
turn to tho Union, with its two respecta?
ble aud well-known correspondents. It
would be better for the Union, were they
not so well known.
The fact ip, Mr. Editor, we have no
timo for Ku Kluxism. For energy, for
Bobor industry, wo will place tho whit??
population of our County against that
of uuy County of tho Uuiou. Tho best
evidence of it is, our present prosperous
condition. What towu iu tho Statu has
improved as Spartaubnrg, sinco the
war? It is estimated that our popula?
tion has increased ne,ir 501) iu the last
year or two; besides nmuy private resi
douces and two elegant brick stores have
just been built on Main street, aud two
more, with u largo ball, uro now being
built. We have iu successful operation
a uatioual bank, with a paid up capital
of S?d,OOO. Ono reuseu of our pros?
perity is tho energy of our white popu?
lation aud the lurga preponderance of
whites over blacks. But agaiu, our
natural advantages arc great. Spartan
burg is destined to become a great rail?
road centre. Thu nir lino from Atlanta
to Charlotte is nearly graded from this
point to Charlotte. Trains will be run
ning next spring or summer. The
Spartanburg and Uuiou Railroad will
certainly bo extended. Measures are
uow on foot, backed by large ciipital,-to
secure that end. Tho completion of
the Spartanburg and Augusta Railroad
is only a question of time. Tho deep
interest it excites, tho rich country
through which it passes, the cheapness
of tbe route, all make it a certainty.
Another evidence of our prosperity is
tho faith the people have in this great
enterprise, as they uot only beliovo iu
them, but risk their money on them.
Following the example of Northern men
connected with tbo Air Liuo Road, they
are beginning to speculate iu lots and
other real estate. Real estate is as high
now as it over was, and is daily appre?
ciating in value.
With such prospects, Spartanburg can
afford to be slaudered by those peta of
the Union-a swindling, .speculating
parsou, and a would-be politician und
legislator. CI VIS.
A GREAT RAILROAD DEPOT-A BUILD?
ING CoVEMXO MORE THAN FlVJi ACRES.
The magnificent central depot, intended
for tho joint occupancy of tbo New York
Central and Hudson River, Now York
aud Harlem, and Now York and New
Haven Railroad Companies, iu Now York
city, will be formally opened October 2.
Tbo vast building covers au area of more
than five acres, exteudiug from Forty
second to Forty-fifth street,- and from
the middle of Fourth avenue for about
one-half the distance to Madison ave?
nue. Its length is 900 feet, and its width
275 feet. The work was commenced in
September, 1800, just two yours ago.
On the second iloor, fronting on Forty
second street, aro the offices of the Pre?
sident, Treasurer, Secretary and Super?
intendent, which overlook the graud
archway, built of glass aud iron. On
tho West Bide there are fivo eu tra aces,
leading to tho oflices of the attorney,
auditor, chief engineer, general ticket
agent, baggage agent, aud tho directors'
rooms, and other apartments, all of
which aro fitted up in tho most splendid
manner. Every convenience that could
be desirod has been provided. The ex?
terior of thia colossal edifice is mainly
brick and iron. All tho window frames,
doors and casings are iron, and painted
white, while every door iu the buildiug
is of black walnut. All tho stair-cases
leadiug to tbe different rooms aud oflices
aro eithor of iron or stone. The floors
are all inlaid with white oak and black
walnut, and the baggage rooms aro sup?
plied with asphalt parement. At each
end of tho roof is a largo domo of brick
and iron, surmounted by a flag-staff.
The entire building is to be heated by
steam. In tho centre of tho building,
on tho West side, is stationed nu elect rio
battery for lighting tbo gas, winding the
cloth, aud regulating thu heat, for Ibo
caro of which n man is employed at ?
salary of 8100 a mouth. On Forty-fifth
street aro huge irou door-ways to admit
the cars. lu tho centre of these en?
trances will be tho office of tho "look?
out," whoso duty it is to regulato the
departure aud arrival of tho trains. In?
side of tho archway, which is 100 feet
high, accommodations have been made
to receivo 100 cars. It is estimated that
tho cost of this building will be nearly
81,000,000. Tbe superb stylo of its
architecture makes it one of tho finest
ornaments of the city.

THE "PASSION PLAY."-There aro one
or two of the interior villages of a por?
tion of Germany where once in about
tun years, amidst a rural aud religious
poople, tho whole history, life and death
of tbo Saviour, with tho attendant cha?
racters, aro depicted iu what is called tbe
"Passion Play." Tho population ga?
thers iuto thu village from thc surround
ing districts, remaining several days,
through which tho performance of tbe
play extends. It is a curious aud grave
entertainment, and lately has attracted
tho attention of travelers. Tho Ameri?

REMARKABLE VOYAGING OF A CANAL
BOAT.-The Darwin, of Philadelphia, is
tho name of a merchantman now tied up
iu the canal at Portage, Wisconsin. The
boat ?B constructed something like an
Erie Canal boat, and is propelled by
steam. A brief statement of her career
since ber construction will strike many
with woudor nt the capabilities of the
water system of tho country. From
Capt. E. Moyer we learn that the Darwin
was built some two years ago on the
Su squib ii mi uh River', some forty miles
above Harrisburg. When abe left the
ship-yard shn went down to Havre de
Grace, in Maryland, ou thu Chesapeake
Bay, crossed over the bay to Chuflapeake
City, wheu she entered the Chesapeake
and Delaware Canal, ?ind proceeded to
tho Delaware River; thence up that great
river to Philadelphia; thence to Bordeu
town, where she entered the Raritnn
Ganai; theuco down tho river to Newark
Bay, and thence to New York city; up
the Hudson to Alba uv, where she euter
?d tho Erie Canal; thence to Buffalo,
through Lakes Erie, St. Clair, Huron,
and Michigan to Green Bay; thence up
thc Lower Fox, through Lake Winneba?
go to Oshkosh; thence np the Wolf to
tho Upper Fox, aud up that river to the
canal which connects that stream with
tho Wisconsin River. Wheu she leaves
hero she goes down the Wisconsin to
Prairie du Chien, und from thence down
the Mississippi to Cairo, and up the Ohio
to Louisville; and eventually will bring
around to Pittsburg, which is not very
fur distant from whore she started.
THE AMERICAN RIVER GANGES-A RA?
DICAL CARTOON.-In a late number of
Harper's Weekly, the celebrated "Jour
nul of Civilization," so-called, is n car?
toon oalled "Tho American River
Gau goa." It represents the promiuout
city officials of Now York in tho act of
dropping young children over a breust
work, behind which they (tho officials)
aro entrenched, to tho ground (a shore,)
whoru they become a prey to crocodiles,
which are just emerging shorowurd from
a river that Hows by. These crocodiles
are pictured as bishops of tho Cutholic
Church in America, robed iii the vest?
ments of their high ecclesiastical office,
tho mitre on the head of each being
made to rcproseut the open mouth of u
crocodile fully provided with rows of
ugly teeth, which, it is to bo iuferred,
ure td do tho mastication necessary to
ihstire tho destruction of tho children
who aro forced to become their food.
lu order to create sympathy for these
poor children, and to intimate that they
are Protestants, wo see prominent in the
foreground a youth, out of the breast of
whose jacket there protrudes a book, on
tho cover of which is inscribed tho
words "Holy Bible." The design of tho
whole affair is, of course, to represent
thu Catholic Church io America as pro?
selyting tho Protestant children of this
country, und as having the city officials
of New York as aiders and abettors in
tho movement. It is nn eminently ori?
ginal idea with this Republican "Jour
unl of Civilization."
