A l-ecey to Charleston.
The bequest if tho late John Thomson
to the city of Charleston of a residuary
estate, which it is estimated will amount
to a eum exceeding $100,000 and possibly
twice as much, has naturally caused a
good deal of ta.k around town, and tho
talk in most instances resolves itself into
the question, ' What shall we do with
it?" It is no secret that Mr. Thomson at
one time intended to leave a handsome
legacy to the n.useum of the College of
Charleston in :'act, a will was made to
that effect but it seems that the pres
ent will was made subsequently to that.
The money is given to the city absolute

payer a right ut least to express an opin

During last y-i r no less a sum than
3G,-JS7 was subrcribed in tho country
by infatuated et thusiasts toward the
Utopian object of converting the Jewa
to Christianity. The annual report
states that 12 "converted" Jews
were confirmed during tho year, of
whom, however, only five were adults.
It appears therefore that it costs about
3,040 to convert each Jew, but this is
far too low an estimate, inasmuch as

The French In Siam.
If it were not that the elections were
coming on in France and that no French
ministry dare ask for a heavy grant of
money and 5,000 troops for aTonquinese
expedition, we should think the situa
tion very serious indeed. Siam might
be struck to the ground in six weeks.
The French do not, it is true, do this
kind of work as well as we do, for their
conscripts die like flies, and their col
ored troops are liable to panics, but there
is no solid strength whatever to support
the Siamese throne. There is an armv,
but it will not beat even if it will face
French regulars. It has been organised
in imitation of European plans', winch
means that it has lost its national
strength witbjju gaining strength from
science, and it his no tested leaders to
whom it is devoted. It will be beaten
wo may be sure if the hour of conflict
arrives and the war ij really waged with
trance, ana or popular insurrection
there is but a slender hoix?. Tho court
of Siam once beaten will submit, as the
court of Hue did, and thenceforward
everything will goon earthly, with a
French resident r.s virtuafk-ing of Siam.
