W'ith a view of making the Commercial apartment of the DEMOOBAT as full, accu gte aod complete as that of any journal in ,w Orleans, we have engaged Mr. W. J. mour as commercial editor. Mr. Seymour is well known to this commu ~y having been connected for twenty-five ira with the press of New Orleans. Before he war he was for eight years co-editor and rietor with his father, Col. Isaac G. our, in the Commercial Bulletin, recog in its time, as the great commercial i of the South. ehanan county, Virginia, claims to be banner county of the State. (len. James the Conservative candidate for Lieu Governor, did not receive a single vote the whole county because of his manly in favor of the payment of the State It is certainly the banner county for on. annexation powers of England are in tible. That country swallows more tory in a year without a war than Rus in a decade with the loss of a hun thousand men. During the past year d added the Fiji Islands, the en Coast of West Africa, and the Trans .$epublie to her already immense do and all this with the loss of less than hundred men; but the greatest annex. sehenie is the latest. The English are now talking openly of "the on of China to our Eastern Empire." already possesses the greater part Chinese trade, and boasts at Hong Singapore and Queensland of millions ine subjects, so that this annexation htbe done much more easily than one suppose, and with less expense and money than the conquest of India her. Certainly England is making in u.pon the western portion of China. An has just been sent to Thibet, to wome arrangements, it is said, with the Llama for the absorbtion of his terri . Thibet is now tributary to China, and ion would bring England face to with the Empire of the Celestials. That y country lies just betloon the terri of Russia and Great Britain, and it is a question of time which of the two will r Wt Ibe United States enjoyed three earth U during the past month. The first New York, New England and Canada, was quite severe, particularly in the 1at aontry. The second visited North Carolina was confined mainly to the mountainous of the Old North State. The latest, occurred only five days ago, visited Nebraska, and the Northwest. *< Dr climate is yearly becoming more and demoralized. In the Senate of the ITni States, the other day, Senator Paddock, ebraska, called attention to the severe and dangerous freshets occurring in country, and the fact that they were increasing in force and severity in of decreasing, as they should do in a that is being opened up to settle The frequent and violent changes of occurring here he attributed to our cUon of the original forests of this To cure the evil he proposed the tment of a commission to go to Europe ythe foresty laws and regulations of countries, in order to put similar in operation here. Although it may be whether this is the best mode of ac the end aimed at there is little that Congress might, with advantage, its attention occasionally from the im t of the politics of this country to m~provement of its climate and meteorol Cincinnati papers, both Democratic 'Republican, have gone to counting the for President in 1880, and have become excited over it. Perhaps the most hu table of all is that of the Gazette, ves the Republican candidate-Grant, Blaine or whoever he shall be-185 the same number that Hayes received, el'ects him by just one majority. Hard sl this, however, fully as hard as 1e Electoral Commission had before it started out to count in Hayes, since, . ke these 185 votes, it not only the doubtful States of Illinois New Hampshire and Wisconsin, the Republicans, but gives them Connec as well, and then winds up by trying to Louisiana and South Carolina for the party. Why these two States should ledout from the "solid South" and thus over to the Republican presidential it is hard to say. Does the Gazette that the Returning Board still sits in to count votes for the Repub idts? Has it learned that most ob Carolina Radical rogues are in tat those of this State will soon fol there ? This very supposition of ati paper is an insult. Before the Republican papers always placed i In the Republican presidential they did this so often that when en they felt that some mistake and reversed its vote. We therefore, agaiPst any campa gn @1 1660.iDon't Jtist athithiate swhe1u qtoaao f trhad with South .Am.ne Is bhalg so ueitelvel agitated, not only in this city, but through out the whole country, It Is hardly neoessary to make apologies for offering the public an1 Important facts bearing upon the subject. First we shall show by facts and figures do rived from official sources what a small pro portion we enjoy of the bemnefits of the trade of a single one of these South Americat countries, Brazil, but that the largest and richest of them all. Then we shall endeavoi to account, in a measure, for this greet dis. parity, so much to our disadvantage, by other statistics, taken also from official re, ports, which will abundantly illustrate the opposition against our marine at polnts where our meochants trade. From these sta* tistics it will be made apparent that our com petition in the markets of South America will not be unattended with grave difficul ties. From the report of the Brazilian Commis sion at the Centennial Exposition we take the following statement of the foreign trade of Brazil for the year 1875, giving the relative proportion enjoyed by each of the five great commercial nations of the world participating in the Brazilian trade: Imports. Exports. Total. Germany .......... 5.21 8.48 8 64 Unittd tates......... 4.67 20.90 25.57 France ...............19.411 18.46 82 98 Great Britain.........51.47 45 80 9.77 Portugal ......... 5.01 4.78 9.74 100.00 100.00 200.00 From the above table it appears that the United States is the very smallest exporter of all these nations, selling less to Brazil than even Portugal or Germany. But she is sec ond in imports from that country only to Great Britain, who sells 1.47 per cent over half of all the foreign commodities that are bought for that market. The United States is, moreover, the bnly one of these nations whose imports from Brazil exceed her exports to that country. With all the others there Is a handsome per centage in their favor, while with us there is against us the immense difference between 4.67 per cent and 20.190 per cent, all of which has to be made up in gold coin, literally taken out of the country and never to return. Here is work for the statesman and econo mist, as well as the merchant and ship builder, to correct this balance sheeot, and in doing this they may restore our industries to their lost prosperity, and find work for our unemployed and discontented labor. From the report of the Brazilian Commis sion, we also learn that the increase of foreign trade with that country from the year 1869 to 1874 exceeded that from 1864 to 1869 nearly 26 per cent. In accounting for this the com mission say: "The progress of trans-Atlantic steam navigation for some years past has greatly contributed to the prosperity of the empire." Again they say: "To the relative increase in the tonnage of the foreign trade tihe steam packets, which in a great measure Are advantageously taking the place of the sailing vessels, contributed largely." If we would compete successfully in that market with the great commercial powers of Europe, we must have direct steam commu nication with that country. Yet when the slightest move is made to that end by any effort to secure the aid of government in establishing a line of steamships the cry of subsidy is raised, and every Congressman's official existence is immediately put in jeop ardy. We may as well look the matter squarely in the face, and carefully consider the odds with which our merchantmen have to contend. We know of no shorter or surer way of getting at the bottom of the trouble than by comparing what we have done for our maritime service with what other na tions have done for theirs. From a very able and comprehensive little pamphlet entitled "Our Merchant Marinle," written and com pilied by Mr. Charles S. Hill, we get the fol lowing statistics: A comparison of the total amount paid by England and the United States during the last ten years, in the form of subsidy, shows $52,138,847 on the part of England, against $5,887,500 paid by the United States. In the trade with South and Central America and the West Indies alone, France and England afford their own against the American marine a support aggregating $2,449,886 50, to offset which we pay our's not one cent. What elo quence could be more convincing than this barren statement of facts? But there are others still more startling than these-facts which constitute a queer commentary on American statesmanship and commercial sagacity. In the year 1876 the United States paid to foreign steamship lines $182,863 40, subsidizing to that amount lines that were subsidized besides by their own governments. But this is not all; it is fur ther shown by Congressional records that the assistance of the United States Postoflice to foreign steamships has amounted during the past ten years to $3,421,783 41, while during the same period it has paid to our own steam ships but $1,385,634 30, showing the amount paid by our own government to foreign ton nage to be almost three times the amount paid to American tonnage. Great Britain has almost entirely driven our merchant marine from the seas,while our commerce has drifted away from us and our industries have become disorganized and so ciety seriously threatened with social convul sions growing out of our perverted economies. Here we may read a very important chapter in the history of our decadence as well as of that of England's growing power and wealth. There are other important facts bearing upon this question, but which we find it impos sible to condense within the compass of a single article; we shall therefore continue the subject in another article, in which we shall show that the sub sidy of $150,000, asked for the establishment of a line of steamships from this port to Bra zil, is but justly due to this State under an equal distribution of the regular postal ap propriation, and that the government, by granting i , will not only not lose a cent, but will realize a handsome profit in the expendi ture. The fate of Robert L. Case, late President of the New York Security Life and Annuity Company. will probably prove a warning to insurance companies. The crime for which Case was tried was perjury, he having sworn to a false statement of the as sets of the company of which he was presi dent. The real estate of the company was given at $450,000, whereas it had cost only $150,000 and had probably-decreased in value, and the bank account was increased from $900 to $175,000. Of all these discrepancies it now appears that President Case knew noth ing. He knew or suspected that there was sonmehing rotten n the company, had good mean tbe*ee that the aatemwt hewa3 ervoM id 44 **iwbt ig isad eged to in !e ve tgate the loounl of the ompany. be. ly cane hb felt that if he did make such an In. b- veetigation he could not swear to the report ^y without flagrant perjury. Such was the ly salve he applied to his conscience. He also thought to make his oath informal by sign e- ing the report in his room, and send o- ing it around to the notary, who then at le tested that it has been signed and sworn to in an his presence. And this flimsy pretext was ad oneof his main defences against the charge r of perjury. s- Case had been a wealthy man and madean Py earnest fight for his liberty, but failed, and e- will spend a long period of time at Sing Sing to in striped clothing. He is an old man, has a ie large family, who are left in destitute circum a- stances, the whole of his fortune having boeen a- lost in the insurance company, to whose false a statement he put his signature. Although 1- much of the money of the company was em bezzled, his hands are free from this crime s- His offense was that, having been victimized ae himself, he helped his rotten company to vic Af timize others; and even this he did in a clumsy re and bungling manner, bandaging his own it eyes that he might not see the rottenness g around him. The verdict of guilty will certainly be a 1. warning to presidents of bankrupt Insurance 14 companies. They will probably learn the 17 force of an cath learn that it cannot be dodged as Case tried to dodge it, and not r4 make mistakes about the assets of their c ompaales. Missouri, Illinois, almost every State in the Union, has passed most stringent e laws against fraudulent insurance compa )f nles, but the conviction of a man like Case n will do more good In this line than a whole book of laws. r The iron-clad Puritan, now being built at e Chester, Pa., for this government, is a start ling proof of the efficiency of our Navy l)o y partment. The Puritan is an old vessel, but i has not yet been to sea. She was begun in 1864, and built at an expense of $1,957,231 43. When finished, it was discovered that some Sbody had made a mistake, and that the vessel I was unseaworthy. One of Robeson's friends, I however, designed another vessel out of the a hulk of the Puritan, and began work on it a short time since. About $400,000 has already been spent on the vessel, and $1,000,000( will be require(l to complete her. The repairs to the vessel, made at various times, cost six times as much as building her, so that the total cost of the Puritan, which has not yet t put to sea, will be something over $10,000,000. The stone dry dock at Mare Island, in the i harbor of San Francisco, however, Is a much litter monument to the finan.lal abilities of ex-Secretary IRobeson, for in this he fairly eclipsed himself, and laid the foundation for a dozen fortunes hald he not beeoon lrematurely kicked out. The original estimated cost of the whole dock was $2,149,000. At the expi ration of five years it is discovered that $1,:350,000 has been spent in constructing a small section, one-quarter of the bottom of the dock. The whole cost of the dock at the present rate will be $50,000,000, so experienced I engineers say. The constructors building it naturally hesitate and want to know whether they shall go on with the work or not. ThQ government will have to be very (conomioal in other departments to build the dock. But perhaps Thompson will not be able to build it as expensively as Robeson could. The South Carolina courts have convicted the third Radical thief brought up for trial. The three rogues convicted are Cardozo, ex Treasurer of the State; Smalls, a member of the present Congress, and L. Cass Carpenter, an ex-member of Congress. The next person to be tried is Niles G. Parker, ex-State Treas urer. Very little sympathy has been wasted on these men. It is scarcely necessary to say that the statute under which Smalls was in dicted was one passed by the last Republican Legislature of South Carolina; that the grand jury which Indicted him was one drawn by the Radicals before the Hampton government was established, and was composed large- , ly of negroes; and lastly, that the petit jury - which convicted him stood: whites 6, negroes 6. Even the bloody shirt press of the North cannot squeeze out a tear over these lost ones. Two more Republican members of the South Carolina Senate, those from Sumter and Lancaster counties, having been found implicated in the frauds that prevailed in the Palmetto State under Radical rule, have re signed their seats in order to avoid an in vestigation by the Senate. their consequent trial and conviction. These make some half a dozen Radical members that have retired from the South Carolina Senate under fire. The Senate originally boasted of a Republican majority, but convic tions, resignations and new elections have so changed it that when it reassembles the Democratic majority will be from six to eight. In every election for members of the Legislature held since November the Demo crats have been successful; the Republicans in very few instances placing any tickets at all in the field. The House is overwhelm ingly Democratic. NEW WINTER CLOTHING Wheeler & Pierson, 13 and 15 Camp street. We have opened our and invite buyers to examine our styles and prices.
