Ik is a noteworthy fact that tho phos?
phates of South Carolina have beooruo a
< valuable article of commerce. The
largest proportion of, the Charleston
' phOBphatic exports goes to Groat Britain.
Canada takes a considerable quantity.
Tbe Northern States not much yet
There are manufactories in Baltimore to
which the ore is taken for reduction and
treatment. In the South the trade ia
rapidly extending. Netive commercial
fertilisers are rapidly supplanting those
imported from abroad, or manufactured
in other Stales. Peruvian guano is be?
coming Jeaa ttsed alone. It enters largely
late the composition of other fertilizer*
; as a base. The adaptability of our do?
mestic s fertilizers to bar soil, and their
. oiTeoia upon crops, are maitens no longer
of doubt. At least twenty-five per cent,
of advantage is gained, where they are
applied. On soils naturally good, and
? in good condition, they return even .a
bighor per cent. On exhausted lands,
they can be made to snpply the elements
. which euooessivo cropping has taken
? away.' The combination of the fertiliz?
ing or stimulating properties may bo
niada to Bait the condition of the soil.
One .will require ammonia, another phos?
phoric acid, another phosphate of lime,
And another something else, perhaps. A
planter ban give his order to suit the
land he cultivates, or the crops which he
" proposes to take off of it. Where they
are oonsietoutly and intelligently applied,
- improvement in the laad must regularly
result. In considering their value, an
other thing must bo taken into account.
The effect of the use of fertilizers upon
accelerating the maturity of cotton crops
3 baa boon demonstrated to be as muoh as
two or? throo weeks' of time. This is no
. ' fdoonslderabla advantage in the diminu
v tiori* of labor. Risks of frost, worms
and rains ore correspondingly dimi

' The Ganoral Assembly did a wise
, I thing, a few years ago, in establishing an
?". ; inspector of fertilizers. 'The deposits
. :imXQ subjected tp chemical analysis, and
- ^the preoise quality or production of the
ingredients of which they ara couipo-jed
Bsoeriaiaed and atampod npoti them be?
fore they are placed upon the market.
? 'This teoda both j to keep the standard
k high and, at a glanoe, to instraot the
planter in "which* be is baying. It is
equally banefioial to the manufacturers,
in the exclusion whioh it.;operates of in?
ferior articles. The companies engaged
in, manufacturing appreciate its advan?
tages to themselves. The practice of
??? irinds in the quality of the article, which,
' we recollect, was so common among
'fi L Northern manufacturers, is thus uot
: praeuuabie here. Instead of decrease in
their uso, thorefore, as at the North, be
oauao of the aale of artioles not up to the
standard aa at first fixed and promised,
and worthless to the farmer, this rigid
- aces of inspection, in keeping the quality
* pure, will tend td inorease the use.
. Phosphate digging in this State is ra?
pidly increasing.' Oae company mined
15,000 tons during the last year, and the
production from river deposits alone
amounted to 40,000 tons in the last
twelve months. It is thought that the
entire producta of the State will be in?
creased not less than forty per oent. dur?
ing the present year. The deposits are
inexhaustible, apd are the richest ia tbe
world. South Oarolina enjoys a practi?
cal commercial monopoly in them. Dar
ing the last year; strata of phosphates
have been discovered in Siberia, Austria
and Franco. But, says the New York
Bulletin, from whioh we get most of the
foots here used, they are all beyond the
reach . of immediate development, and
are not favorably situated for the trans?
portation of the products to market. In
all these respects, the South Carolina
rook deposits enjoy immense advantages.
Tbey can be reached, decomposed and
manipulated with economy and facility,
and the products oan be easily and oheap
ly distributed, either by railroad or
water transportation. All that is re?
quired to develop this business into vast
proportions is papital, and this deficiency
is not likely to oontinue long, in view of
..: the returns whioh have been realized
from the investments that have been al?

?A^rupti The political power is in alien and
ignorant hands, the labor system is ill
regulated, and sooial disorganization
everywhere reigns. But our country yet
remains, and tho old spirit and tradi?
tions survive, and keep alive a whole?
some conservatism, not inconsistent with
^ reasonable progress and liberality of
Tiews. We have many fields of activity

It Is both unprofitable and unmanly.
What our bauds find *o do, let us do
with ow mlgM. And .: right here, in
these rieh phosphate rooks, ia good find;
profitable work. Ia the Immigration
?lid Agricultural Convention, held in
Charleston, in May, 1870, a Northern
man?Mr. True?delighted the Conven?
tion with his outspoken and frank vie wo.
People complained of the Southern
States, he said, but he fouuel them to
bis liking. One was not enongh for
him?so he worked in two* He oropped
in Georgia, and in the intervals between
gathering his crops and planling again,
he carried on work in the phosphate
mines of South Carolina. And, he
added, if there is any money to be badi
in either, he would get bis share. And
ho was right We need not go far to
seek business. It is everywhere, where
there is enterprise and oourage to disco?
ver and undertake it.
The New Abhx Uniform. ? The now
army uniform, worn for the first time
by the offioera on New Year's P*y at the
President's reception, attracted much at
tentiou. The Washington Star says:
It is very showy, and the plumes of
the various branches of the service ore
designated by different colors. The coat
is of dark blue oloth, double?brea8ted,
with a skirt extending from one-half to
three-fourths of the distauoe between
the hip and the knee. Staff officers
wear pants of dark blue oloth without
stripe; other officers wear light blue
pants, with. stripe of similar color to
that of the facings of their respective
arms, except for lnfautry^offioors, where
the stripe is of dark blue.
Gen. Sherman wore two rows of but?
tons on the breast of his coat, placed in
fours. He wore epaulettes, and his
plume consisted of three white ostrich
feathers. Other general and staff of?
ficers were three black ostrioh feathers,
aud regimental officers wore plumes of
horse hair or cook's feathers of a color
similar to the trimmings of their coats.
Gen. Sherman and the general and s*aff
officers wore ohapeaus; light artillery
I and cavalry officers, black felt helmots
with goldoords aud tassels and gilt trim?
mings; other officers dark blue cloth
hats. Genorals Baboook and Dent were
attired in full dress suits, and 'uot in
uniform, as heretofore.
Modeen Giaxts.?The race of giants
is-not extinct; aud Barnum might make
a fortune by bringing over the Gosheu
family from Turkey in Asia, who are de?
scendants of Anakims, of Palestine.
Colonel Ruth Goshen, thirty-three years
bid, one of this family, now residing in
Algonquin, Illinois, born among the
hills of Palestine, and seven feet and
eight inches in height, recently entered
the office of tho Scientific American. He
is the fifteenth and last child (the baby)
of a family of fifteen?ten sons and five
daughters?sired by a patriarch now
ninety years old, living in the valley of
Damascus, aud by occupation a coffee
plauter. This venerable sire woighg at
the present time 520 pounds avoirdu?
pois, and his wife, aged sixty-seven,
weighs 560 pounds. Tho entire family
are living, and not one of them weighs
less than 500 pounds. The oldest sou
weighs 030 pounds, and tbo youngest
(the colonel) outstripping them nil,
weighs 070 pounds. Not one of the
family ia leas than seven feet in height.
Both was a colonel in tho Austrian army
in 1850, and a colonel commaudiug in
the Mexican army at the battle of.
Pueblo, May 5, 1862, in which tho
Mexicans were victorious. His father,
at one time, resided at Lieds, England,
but returned to Turkey in 1815. The
colonel married in Lieipsio, Germany, a
woman weighing 190 pounds and five
feet nino inohes in height; the union has
been blessed with two sous, who give
promise of rivaling their father in statue.
He is a finely-proportioned man; walks
with a firm and elastio step; is as straight
as an arrow, and has ooal black eyes,
hair and moustache.
A LrrabB Composition on the Whkel
babbow.? The Daubury Newsmari says:
If you have ocoasion to nse a wheel?
barrow, leave it, when you are through
with it, iu front of the house with the
bandies toward the door. A wheelbar?
row is the most complicated thing to fall
over on the face of the earth. A man
will fall over one when he would never
think of falling over anything else. He
never knows when has got through full?
ing over it, either; for it will tangle his
legs and his arms, turn over with him
and rear up ia front of him, and just as
he pauses in his- profanity to congratu?
late himself, it takes a now turn aud
sooops more skin off of him, and ho
oommenoes to evolute anew aud bump
himself iu fresh places. A man never
ceases to fall over a wheelbarrow until it
turns completely on' its back, or brings
up against something it cannot upset.
It is the most inoffensive looking object
there is, but it is more dangerous than a
locomotive, and no man is seoore with
on j unless he has a tight hold of its
handles and is sitting down on some?
thing. A wheelbarrow has its uses,
without doubt, bat in its leisure mo?
ments it is the greatest blighting curto
on true dignity.

''what we shall do aboafc' murder." It I
declares: "We record about one murder
a day in New York proper, and nobody
ia pa Dished, and indeed it seems difficult
to have anybody tried." If auoh a state
of things existed in any of the Southern
States, the Albany Penitentiary would
have to be considerably enlarged. It is
a terrible condition of affairs, beyond all
doubt. And the difficulty of applying
legal remedies in Now York may be in?
ferred from the talk in whioh the Times
indulges, that "when freedom baa dege?
nerated into license, and law becomes
only a protector of criminals, despotism
in some form is always oalled in to take
the reins of government at th? first mo?
ment of re-action. It comes like a tem?
pest, but it does clear the air." ?
The Times then goes on to tell bow a
former despotic uoveruor-Generai of
Cuba, Taoon, put an end to the fre?
quency of murders in Havana, where
that orime bad become as common as in
Now York. One morning, about a dozeu
bodies were discovered ia the streete,
stabbed to death. lu the course of the
day, Taoon sent for the chief of police,
who presented himself at the viceregal
palace. "Where are the murderers of
those men who wero killed last evening?
Have you arrested them?" "Where,
your Excellency? How should I know?
I do not oven know who they are. I
have mado inquiries, but have been able
to discover nothing. Your Excellency
will see that it is impossible that there
should bo any arrests." "I see no snob
thing," said l'acau, rising in Eis wrath.
"Look you hero, sir; find me the men
who committed thoso murders before
three days aro over, or, on the fourth, I
will garrote?you." "But, your Excel-j
lenoy-" "Not a word; find them, or
take their place." Accordingly, the chief
of polioo found the required number,
though whether they were the aotual
criminals or not is uncertain. Atany
rate, they were garroted without delay,
and assaasiuatiou began to diminish ra?
pidly in Havana.
The Times goes on to iudioate that
the despotism of a mob, say of a vigi?
lance committee, (alias Ku Klux,) is
more terriblo than that of a single go?
vernment, and that when this sort of
despotism ruled iu San Francisco, "from
that time order dwelt within the goldon
gates." Of course, it hopes that no
such "disgrace and horror" will full
upon New York, but the drift of its
meaning is perceptible enough. The re
oital of theso facts is sufficient to show
the appalling prevalence and impunity
of murder in New York.
The last viotim and bis murderer there
wero men prominent in their way, and
they grappled with each other in tho
street like wild beasts, and tho murderer,
with his victim ander him, unable to
make effectual resistance, cut him to
death with repeated blows of bis Bowie
knife. The coolness and indifference ho
manifested after the deed and at tho
time of his arrest were a subject of geue
al remark, though we now learn that his
defence will be that be committed the
act in a paroxysm of rage, having been
excited to freuzy by Duryea's taunts and
a knowledge of his own straitened mo?
netary oondition. In other words, the
unfortunate- Mr. Simmous will seem to
have been a victim of temporary insa?
nity, a malady which the best men are.
subject to, ami which relieves him of nil
It is obvious, however, that if overy
man who suffers from tho "taunts" of au
enemy, or from his "straitened mone?
tary condition," is going into a "frenzy"
about it, and can only relieve himself by
killing somebody, the population of this
planet is likely to be seriously dimi?
nished. The very mention of such a de?
fence in any country where tho laws are
impartially and efficiently administered
would cau.se a general smile of derision.
Almost simultaneously with this frosh
New York atrocity, the second trial of
Stokes, for the "alleged murder" of
Fisk, has commenced. It is nearly a
year siuoe this "alleged murder" has
occurred, aud it remaius yet to be settled
whether Stokes was guilty, or is an inno
oout and much-injured man, incarce?
rated for so long a period unjustly. In
view of such developments as these, it is
much to be feared that, unless the foun?
tains of justioe are purified iu New York,
the dreadful alternative of Lynch law,
suggested by tho Times, will yet disgrace
tho ohief metropolis of this country.
A Pastor's Keward.?That good,
faithful pastoral work is appreciated in
the Stnto of Ohio, as illustrated by the
following inoident that occurred in Iron
ton. A revival preacher, nlio had won
fame by his power in the pnlpit, came to
Ironton for a week's work. Ho was
very zealons, preached every night, ex?
cited considerable interest, and was vehe?
ment in his exhortations to tho uure
newed portion of tho congregation to
come foward. On tho last eveniug of
his labors, he outdid himself, but not a
person rose to come forward. Discou?
raged, he sat down; whereupon a grave
faced, anxious-looking man got up, and
said that the eldei had boon working
hard and laboring faithfully among
them, and, as a token of their apprecia?
tion, he moved that the congregation
give bim three ohoer-d- It was done
right heartily, and that contrite congre?
gation went quietly out and silently
home, satisfied that they had fully and
faithfully performed their duty.

Blelly and Bobert E. Hopgood, alias
Lyons, from Sing Sing Prison, about
two weeks ago, when, on tho strength ?f
a bogas telegram, they sent the warden
and olerk to New York, and thus made
themselves blasters of the situation, it
is the audacity evinced by Sophia Lyons,
wife of the last-named convict, who es?
caped from the female prison, on Thurs?
day evening. As in the case of her hus?

after nightfall on the day namod, a vehi

A, Paw of Lavender Beides.?EU
Perkine, of tho New lork Commercial
Advertiser, is "on tho wing." He
stopped at Homer the other morning for
breakfast, and had tho good fortune to
meet a "quartette bridal party," of whioh
bo thus discourses:
This morning, at the Syraouse House,
I breakfasted with a pair of brides and a
pair of bridegrooms?a sort of bridal
quartette. They were from Cortlaud, I
think, iu the country. I knew they
were just married, from a variety of
reasons. Firet, when they alighted from
the omnibus to entor the hotel both
young ladies took the arms of the gen?
tlemen, who said, "Dear, let me earry
your satchel." Just behind them came
some old married people. I know they
had been married some time, for the
men pouuoed out, starting, luggage in
hand, straight for tbe hotel, leaving
their wives with small satchels to follow,
single file, behind thorn. At breakfast
the brides appeared iu bridal lavender.
Everything was lavender?lavender
dresses, lavender hats, with lavender
strings, and lavender gloves. If ever I
get married Mrs. Perkins shall wear (if
she pleases) a suit of plain black, uud
theu wo oun enjoy our honoycioon in
peace. Tbe young husbands both wore
broadcloth suits und black hats. Both
wore paper oollars and cuffs, and one
wore u paper shirt bosom. Alas! what
a shock Buch deception must bu to a
young and guilders wife! Why, iu *iny
opinion, a paper collar is no more indi?
cation of a real shirt than a clothes-lino,
At breakfast these young husbands
didn't help themselves first when they
sat dowu at the tablo, but they turned to
the brides iu luvender, und said lovingly:
"Havo a roll, dear?*' Then they put
some butter ou tho lavender brides'
plates, and they looked up and said:
"Thank you, dear," with a smilo too
happy to describe. When breakfast was
over one of tho bound husbands smiled
sweetly aud said:
"Now, darling, cnu't I smoke just
once?yon know you said I might."
"Yes, Charley, just once!" and then
