Let others write of battles fought On bloody, ghastly fields, Where honor greets the man who wins, And death the man who yields ; But I will write of him who fights And vanquishes his sins, Who struggles on through weary years Against himself, and wins. He is a hero staunch and brave Who fights an unseen foe, And puts at last beneath his feet His passions base end low ; Who stands erect in manhood's might, Undaunted, undismayed The bravest man who drew a sword In foray or in raid. It calls for something more than brawn Or muscle to o'ercome An enemy who marcheth not With banner, plume, and drum A foe forever lurking nigh, With silent, stealthy tread, Forever near your board by day, At night beside your bed. All honor, then, to that brave heart, Though poor or rich he be, Who struggles with his baser?art Who conquers and is free. He may not wear a hero's crown, Or fill a hero's grave ; But truth wi H place bis name among The bravest of the brave. For th a Advertis?r. Lights and Shadows. Tais is emphatically a world of contrast ; the curtain that shuts out light brings in darkness; a smile ir? absence is substituted by a tear; the beauteous flower that unfolds its ' tiny petals to 'the rising sun, is, at the same time, encircled with thorns.. All harmonies, whether in the physi cal or moral world, result from dif ference of tones and aspects ; show ing that variety in human experi ence, as in other things, is essential to beauty and utility. These marked changes are conducive to the devel opment and expansion of man physi cally, mentally and morally; for crises must be presented to him be fore, his faculties can be sensible for anv high and noble purpose ; times in which every energy is to be ren dered plastic by exercise ; when the frame is to be burdened by honorable toil ; when the intellectual powers are lo be strengthened by a laudable ambition; then deeds ol'individua! heroism will illuminate the whole man, and make him embody, in .it tractive form, the excellencies oi genuine manhood. Every flash ol the Divine Spark in. the soul is b.ut the occasion for the waking np of the natural powers from a passive stat1 ; and every awakened capacity, in the very act of its awakening, begins a struggle against natural vices and inclination; but with a moral power, perpetually energizing, and the thoik ing principle, in ceaseless motion, the developed powers of man will strive, with undaunted zeal, to rebuild the demolished edifice of human gran deur-to enrich it with furniture from the handiworks of the Great Architect of nature-and to adorn it with all the brave ideals of virtue. We, by no means, say that dark periods of incessant toil, in every in stance, exemplify the statement. Con stancy of labor may deprive man of those facilities for intellectual pro gress which intervals of leisure might afford. Cold penury or the chilling breath of calumny may freeze the genial current of the soul ; the ethe real fires of genius may be extin guished in the gloom of an unsym pathizing world; and imperial pur ples and fabled ancestries may be narcotics to many a gigantic intellect, who might have been the moving star to guide the nations to deeds of usefulness and undying glory. The instruction of the world has been carried on by sacrifice. A wri ter-no less renowned than Wm. C. Preston-remarks, " that, as you in crease the circle of light, you in crease the circle of surrounding dark ness," and so, as you widen the area of positive knowledge, you widen the boundaries of positive ignorance. How contracted the scope of intel lectual exertion ! How restricted the possible boundaries of knowledge ! Man may, with Hugh Miller, cull many a gem from coral caverns, and sum up this old engine earth of ours ; he may with Herschel keep an un broken vigil on the watch-towers of science, and bridle with an eclipse " the celestial horse ;" he nay walk, with the grand old masters of poetry, around many a classic fount, and snatch the bay and iv.y from the fin gers of the Goddess of Literature on many a Parnassian height. Even then, he is heard exclaiming in the bitterest agonies, how little we know I How little we know! Dalton's theory of chemical combi nation may lead you into the atom world, and the microscope may reveal to human vision the teeming anim?l culo; that collect in a' drop of water, and yet. do they disclose their origin, their variety of motions, perceptions, and appetites? Newton's law of gravity may ex press, in a few lines, the dynamics of the universe, but does it attempt to explain the circumvolution of the multiplied systems of worlds, -with orb within orb, and cycle within cy cle, around some central sun afar off I in space ? Or the telescope assay to i trace * the fading of stars to faint i nebulae ? " Ossa will have to be piled : upon Pelion in the grapd arena of : thought" before the arcana of nature will yield to the human mind, or the absolute First Cause come within the scope of the flights of transcenden talism. Tho instability,.of popular senti? ment is a characteristic feature ages. Peoples, in every age, disregarded the principles on political fabrics rest, and.uncon ly, have torn from the structi j governments their vital pow? cowering before the mandates ! ambitious diplomacy, and comj idolizing the sophistries of a fanaticism. " Liberty," says an eminent ist, " is the growth of revol the roots of its mighty tree are ished by rich libations of 1 blood; and the Bible .itself ha sword as its selected pioneer." all the glorious triumphs of | and extensive conquests of ind which render immortal the a which we live, questions are hurled into tEe ears of christel as to whether "civilization imp: to any considerable degree, the : and social condition of the ma Or whether the extension of ki edge favors tbe growth of infic and rationalism? The tendenc convert every shapeless form of ter into a luxury-producing in ment, and the invention of so 1 labor-saving machines by chri countries, are efficacious in prodi pauperism and licentiousness - lionaires and beggars. As a c quence the strong oppress the 1 and "Might makes right" bec the real, though not acknowled standard of morality. The i kingdom is weakened by the force influence of the sense-kingdom, virtue of civilization fixing the I so intently upon subjects of the terial world. The American Republic, the < boasted Utopia of thirty million I men, having lost her national bal State Sovereignly-is the prey ol vultures from the four quarters ol globe. Sad to tell, from the Grande to the Potomac can still seen the slime tu?t marks the trai i he huge anaconda that crushed the life-blood of our republican s'it ut ions ; and parallel with its tr ol' desolation are strewn the grave our honored dead, over which bli flowers of a ma rn ii th, watered by tears o\ widov .r ?nt which a grate : ... ?ti . brightest an . which bedeck .... ?ur M, er Earth ! " The Sac-feu* ? : virtue have . prints of an misnamed " Righ now, the fair qn : ? i this occidental land (occidental more than one sense) weeping for] stolen vases. The late war was but the penu bra of tbe grand eclipse, which now in its totality-an eclipse p dieted for the last century by Jeff son, Calhoun, and McDuffle, thou they have not lived to see it verifl Thank heaven ! we have left us Davis, a Stephens, anda 'loomis great political astronomers-to ma observations and transmit to genei tions, yet unborn, their instructi records. France has entered the shadow pi jected by false principles- Austria, fifteen days, made a revolution th has thrown her in the procession; ai conservative England, too, with h rich stores of wisdom, suspended u on the frail life of her venerated Vi toria, is espected soon to join the sc emn march to national deteriorate The infernal orgies of ?Communis are spreading the flesh and blood the good and great over their ba quet boards; weapons, long laid v in ancient arsenals, are drawn in ope warfare, making the dust and smol of the battlefield of sects to rise i columns to the very Throne of Go< Dynasties rise on the bloody ruins ? dynasties; new governments are cn ated in a day, as if a new fortuitoi concourse of individual sentimenl were sufficient guarantees of const tutional systems. Labor, armed wit the thirst for "bread or blood," i ready to wage a war with capita such as never before cursed the work Bismarck's code may mitigate, bu cannot remedy, the evils; nations mus learn anew and practice aright th decalogue of Moses. Let them be guided to Truth b; their ^iaji, and there lay down thei wealth, prejudices, and long cher ished policies; then, and not til then, will the jubilant throng of new born nations fill the earth with theil thunder-shout, and gather with om accord under the Elean groves of thc heavenly sciences ; and then our re generated earth "will join in song with the morning star and shout foi joy with the sons of God." ELIXIF. Batesville, S. C. THE YOUTH OF THE PERIOD.-Thc Lcmdon 8a urday Hevicw says : " The growing emancipation pf young peo I pie from old fashioned forms of re epect would seem to be making them j so unendurable in- society that they ; are more and more exiled from it. j What does it prorit that they possess i all knowledge if they do not behave ?1 according to their tige and condi tion?' Affection is damped for the ; learned little roughs, who would Have been delightful if only they had been I trained in habits of respect by atten tion to its outward and visible signs. 1 Kat ute ie' bet eitogetfcer '? holy i thing,' whatever^?' ap??s and Rous seau may assert ; she Has to be re formed irom the cradlej, and infant school teachers can witness how im portant the conduct of ^fhe body is in training children. We see how charm ing it is in a Russian child to kiss his parent's hand, tx&?m?in standing until bidden to sit, "?jed listen until asked to speak. The]'^ discipline of these Tartars and Cossacks is the same in which our Philip.'Sydneys and Jane Greys were trained, which gave models to Vandyke, and kept green the family affection tirait was once our boast; and we hardlytfo well to neg lects." _ How a Young Lady Feels When She is Engaged. The following " int^efted letter," from the Home. Jour?a), tells funnily how a young lady feils when sur reptiously engaged : DE AB ALLIE : I haste got a real, live, grownup beau';'?ind isn't it jol ly. He's perfectly Splendid : just like those lovely 'waXjfignres in the windows, only they "fean't use their lips. It's the French teacher, and he says ".ina petite"^st like a coo ing dove, and he allays smells so j sweet of pond 'lilies-jfq I don't have anything to do with;i?ie boys now ; those |?ttle boys of^eeventeen ?ind eighteen do very we??tyhen there are no men around, if they1 can get money enough from their pw''to buy us Gun ther's candies, but they can't amuse us girls of fourteen ;gthey seem just like babies ; and whgn they try to make love-0, my ! arji'tthey mushy ? Now, Monsieur Fondue acts as il rle had been engagedtiyfcnty times, al though I'm his fir?Move; but we don't let on before oi and Thnse. Il makes-Arethusa awful mad to have me call her Thuse, aiidihat's the rea son I do it. . I hear*'her ask ma the other day ii that Rfeuchman'? man ners were not tooj?aar..iliar toward tba', child. Child-f She's awfully afraid of my being-.'ia young lady ] What need she care,* now she's mar ried ? Wasn't she -Spooney, though, about Fred ?t Wh?rjfhe.used toc?me abd sse her,. I worj^? drag Tommy into the roora and pufcrny arm around his waist and squeeze his hand until her face would bens red asa beet. Such fun ! I caught her kissing him once-sjnch a little.1 nipping ki.-s, just as if she wore tasting pepper Pance., Now, if I pretended -!to ki^-s a man, I'd do it in right good e u nest ; ju.?? plant my feet square on the ground and give to him sure pop right or. tho Hps. 0, Allie, pQor-'?liqse would go uti' on a dead faint^t my low-bred ... and -infirm me, for the Kur? dr? d ertff?-Jih'h ::f.;-- l1 ' mg to the i.. : . :.: her. I promised Tommy day five cents' v.'c.th o? poa nuts to let me hold him oiitof our third story window. He'd let me skin him for a paner of pea-nuts. So I got him out. aim knelt down under the window ledge, where I couldn't be seen, and held tight hold of his wrists. Thuse thinks my strength is disgusting. Pretty soon there wa? an elderly shriek and then an elderly form rushed across tho street to mother, hut- bv thc time they got.up stairs I was seated quietly at my crochet-work, and Tommy was turning scramersa[ts on the bed, over the lovedy fluted I pillow-cases. And still thinks it is poor Miss Tracy that is " a little wild at times." I loye my brother Fi ed ever so much, but I don't see how he ever came to fancy such a die-away speci men as our Thuse. Because she is so awful pretty, I suppose ; bu,t she just turns bira around her thumb. If he refuges to get. what she wants, she just looks like a martyr in thc flames, and lets down all her back hair like the Magdalens in the pic ture gallery. -And although they are real pretty hanging on the walls, even an artist does not want to sit at tho table three times a day opposite a live one, with her eyes rolled up and her hair down her back. So poor Fred always gives in, and she smiles a forgiving smile, puts up her hair, and goes off to buy the fine silk or thc set- of jewelry that has taken her fancy. And when she gets it she keeps tight hold of it, too. ?he has never given me even a cuff button. Thuse always was stingy. And she is so stuck-up. because she has got a sen. Just as if it were something wonderful. Why, Mrs. Tubbs, our laundress, has eight of them, besides oue that was drowned, and one scalded, and she isn't a bit set up. But Arethusa says " my boy!" and does the maternal all to'pieces. She thinks Alexis is made ont of nicer materials than most babies, and I know she does'nt believe the cate chism where it says he was made out of the vulgar dust of the earth. I suppose she thinks rose leaves and corn starch were used to make up his delicate organization. It would relieve my feelings to see a speck of dirt on that child's lace; it, makes me ache to see him so painfully clean. And she things he is going to bea little Solomon, or some humbug or other. Now, Allie, I have got a secret that vou musn't tell a living soul.. If you do I will never forgive you. I have promised Monsieur Fontaine to be married in three weeks, on my fourteenth birthday, and if mother seems likely to object w- are going to elope, inst like the girls in the nov ela. ' Won't it bo splendid ? Just think what a sensation it will make! The Chicago papers will be full of it. " Elop ment, in high life. The lovely daughter of the. rich and elegant Mrs. E h eloped, with her teacher." Poor Thuse.would do high tragedy, wring her hands, and talk of thc dis grace to their noble house of Ells worth. I.should think her delicate shoulders would ache from carrying our noble house so long. Now, don't' you breathe a word about it, and I will stand by you if you run away with a shoblack* j. Married at fourteen ! Just think ! i I imall beat Thuse out and out. Then, j too, something might happen to Mon ; sieur Fontaine. Of course I wouldn't I have anything happen to him for the i world ; but then something might, j you know-the railroads are always i smashing up; and if there should, j why then I would be a young and in teresting widow; and black crape ' with my fair complexion would be so ! sweet, and 0, Allie, do ypu think that I am too young to wear a widow's cap? What a blow that cap would be to Arethusa. She would rather receive a whole paper of needles in her side-that ia, gold-headed ones, not your common steel things. Now, Allie Wyndham, ii you tell you'll be just as mean as you can be. CELLA ELLSWORTH, (for a little while.) -. i ? . La Mouniahie's Terrible Death. The following details of the death or the aeronaut, La Mountaine, at Ionia, i.Iichigan, are printed in the CMcago Times of Monday : A heavy squall of wind delayed the ascension for three hours, but at the end of that time the air became perfectly calm. Under the direction of the professor the balloon was got into position, and j its inflation with hot air commenced, j The canvas was soon'filled and loom- j ?cl up nearly seventy-five feet high. The basket was a willow one, o? a | size sufficient to hold one person com- j lbrtably. It was attached to the balloon by ?six or eight long ropes, which were fastened at the tcp to a j round piece of wood, some two or j three feet in diameter. The ropes were in no manner fastened together j between the top and the basket. As i each piece was one hundred feet long, i t seemed even 'to the inexperiem ed eye that there should have been some webbing or network, at least-, over the bag or bugle of the canvass. *It was also noticed that the ropes were unevenly distributed, three or faur being in a comparative cluster, leav ing the other strands far apart. Everything being in readiness, the words, " Let her go," were given, and the air-ship darted up with great ra pidity, while the daring aeronaut waved his hat to the uneasy, uncer tain multitude who almost breath lessly and in silence watched his flight. Immediately upon leaving the ground the mouth ot" the canvas began to flap around with great vio lence. When tully a hall' mile from the earth, ?nd when the whole struct Hie looked no larger than a hogshead, the balloon slipped from between the ropes and was instantly inverted. The car and its occupant dropped like a shot, and when the ropes were .vim hint, the round piece of wood '? ? ? about one hundred feel ni^L Ii?: io ? his hold, folded his hands and anns before his face, aud his feet first struck the ground with a dull, heavy thud. Then ensued a panic and up roar in th** crowded multitude which is indescribable. Wpmen fainted ; strong men wept, and, to arid to the confusion, the canvas came flying over the crowd like a Huge bird. Some one cried out to get from the way, aa it would fail with crushing loree. Then the cry VMS taken up, and a general rush was made for safety, in which many were more or less injured. La Mountaine was crushed to a liter al pulp. Not a sign of motion or life was visible when he was reached. A medical examination disclosed the fact that hardly a who]** bone was left. ALiuy were ground and splin tered lo, powder. His jaws fell upon his anns and were pulverized. The blood spurted from his mouth and ears. The corpse waa laid out and placed on the public square, where it waa viewed by thousands during the afternoon, and was sent to his home at Brooklyn, Mich., on the following day. A Terribie Tragedy in Belgium. The Belgium newspapers give the following account of a dreadful-trag edy that occurred three weeks ago in a little village near Brussels. A far mer and his wife h\\<\ plaited lo mur der their niese during her sleep, to roi) her of 1,800 fran es that she was taking to her sick mother.- In order to foil the future searches of the police they, previously to perpetra ting the crime, were engaged in dig ging large hole in their garden, so as tc bury the body in it, when the young girl, who, nqt l?eing asleep, had heard her terrible ' sentence, rushed out by the window and ran to tho police station, distant one mile only. But as soon as she was out, the daughter ?d' the wicked farmer, who' was not. expected home that night, came back, and, not wishing to awaken anybody in the house, went noiseless ly into the bed where her cousin had been lying a few minutes ago. She soon fell asleep, and thus her mother, not being aware of'the providential substitution, owing to the darkness of the night, broke her own daughter's bead with an axe. This being done, the two were go ing to the garden, carrying the corpse, enveloped in a bedspread, when two gendarmes, accompanied by the fugi tive girl, rushed into the house with lanterns in their hands. At the sight ol their niece, whom they thought they had murdered, the two wretches took off the covering and found their unfortunate child killed by their own hands. The man, taking a large butcher's knife, plunged it into his breast and fell. dead on the ground. As to the woman, who was prevented from committing suicide, she became insane, aud is now shut up in a lunatic asylum, where she is expected soon to die from mental ex haustion. A more horrible account has rarely beon registered in the an nuls of crime. ?jr A wicked man in Davenport, bo ' ins on his death-bod, wished to consult some proper person regarding his future stato, and his friend sent a fire insurance agent to him? ! The Attorney-General has given j an elaborate opinion in Gen. How I ards case. His paper is a legal cu , riosity. It shows that the Govern . ment has no possible hold on Gen. j Howard, who somehow, strangely j enough, has dropped through a suc I cession of -loop-holes in the law be I yond the reach of justice. Some j $700,000 have mysteriously disap peared under his mismanagement; : he cannott account for it; the Freed i men's Bureau has been run so loosely '?. that nobody can tell into whose pock I ets the money has leached. And for j this, the.Government has nothing to i show but Gen. Howard's bond for ! $10,000, and his certificate of church membership ''in good and regular j standing." The thing is exceedingly unhandsome. Gen. Howard may be a very good man, but gifted with re markable incapacity, and superhuman gullibility; he may be a very bad man playing a game with consum mate skill ; but it is immaterial which he is, so far as the Government ie concerned, while he has manipulated three-quarters of a million dollars from t..e Treasury. One thing looks badly for Gen. Howard. He has been apologized for and explained con ti n ! nally and interminably for a half dozen years. Every week or two. he has had the benefit of a new c-<at of whitewash. He rms required a vast deal of writing up. It looks suspi cious. He has been explained roo much by half. No honest man could stand so much puffery and palaver, so many polishings and perfuming?, as have bee : found necessary in his case. We see no' barm in his berne interested in churches and speaking in meetings; but what the public want to know is, how a man can re concile the holding of an office for which he knows he is incompetent, and in which he is a confessed de faulted for nearly three-quarters of ti million, with any religion that recog nizes "common honesty as a virtue. To admit his honesty is to impeach his capacity-andan incapacity which can no more be distinguished f?om a crime than two peas, growing in the same pod can be distinguished from each othe,r. ? ??<^>fr-? - BrcvUies anti Levi lies* ???- " Ture love Is monarch ul" all dif ficulties.

Married ladies should be cautious about disciplining their husbands, when Hie latter come home tipsy, by sticking their heads into a bucket of water. At such times the husbands arc not fitted for receiving water. Mrs. Junk, of Ma rietta, Ohio, was in the habit of .so dis ciplining her husband, but she knows bettor now. La.st week she tried it and hold lils head in the pail till he was subjugated. And now she is a lonely widow. ^.O- A mild and affectionate wife in Lancaster, Pa., overheard an acquain tance remark that her husband was too fond of loo.

Iiis late obnox ious political teachings his name has been cast out as unworthy, ami he is resting under the shallow of the dis approval and condemnation of the people who once loved and honored him. "From the heights of honoree : has fail eu to the depths of disgrace ; there let him remain until he gives abundant evidence of sincore sorrow and repentance for his folly and crime' in recommending the social equality of the races. It is true that General Beauregard in a recent address to the people of Louisiana iii vindication of his sup port of the ama'gamution r?solut inns takes "the ground^ ?at they^ do not nece-sarily lead .t- the social equality of the races. But in the entertain ment of this ojltaioii he is ab variance with tlie editim of the prominent and repr?sent?t^ Southern journal , who have given -the resolutions due considemii,.ri and&arried them cut to their logicjJ consequences. They claim thar, tljfr inevitable result of the close comtningliiig of whites and blacks in schools, hotels Slid every place of a public nature witf lead to amalgamation; General Beauregard in his address of vindication has not succeeded in meeting the'*objections raised against the resolutions of which he is said to be the author:' And it isa matter of simple impossibility for him to meet Lnese objections which aro founded on the instinctive feel ings of our nature, and^gSpnsequently^ entirely out of the domain of argu ment. If he is' possessed ot any. powers of penetration or discernment ne must see and feel that he*hascom mitted a grav ? error and taken a false step. It is to bebopecfthat he will repudiate his own resolutions, and do works meet for repentance of, the ig noble and ignominious course that has brought ins once honorable name into such unspeakable disrepute. Chester Reporter. . IHanni^f.tur'nsr fn At*?i!Sf?? ?'.- - ' ?: cuiarion. Last ^vening we'o">t?:?*? j lars in regard to the matter. About the middle ot March last Mr. J. J. Gregg, a well known citizen of this place, long prominently con nected with cotton manufacturing interests, met in Boston an English capitalist, whom he induced to come out to this eily for the purpose ot investigating a projected land scheme connected with manufacturing as a basis. The capitalist, after 1 caching the city and looking into the ?latter, was so well satisfied thai ke proposed that if a company with a capital ol $100,000 were formed he would take stock to the amount of |?i ?L'O, jal culating to use a portion o? ?be capi tal in laying our, sti eets and construct ing sewers. No difficulty was expe rienced in forming the company, several of the most prominent citi zens of Augusta making UP the re quired amount above the f-32,000. The capitalist returned to England, and, as an evidence that he meant business, immediately remi ted thir ty-two thousand dollars to the eom ccmpany in Augusta. The com pany at once |went to work to pur chase land near the city and contigu ous to the canal, and now owns a very large tract adjoining or in the vicinity of the canal. The company has pretty nearly completed its pur chases. The English capitalist referred to, as an inducement for citizens here to join him in a manufacturing enter prise to be established on the Augusta cana', stated that he would head a subscription list in England with ?11,000 ($55,000) to organize a com panv lor the purpose of buil ling or. said canal a factory of 25,000 spin dles, and use his inlluence to get up a comp my with a capta] of $1,001 ?,000 ?with that view. Mr. J. J. Gregg will leave for England this morning to perfect the scheme in concert with the capitalist. He is sanguine of success, as he has received great en couragement from prominent English capitalists. If the scheme is perfected, as we trust and believe it will be, a great impetus will be given to the manufacturing interests of Augusta, and a large ad/li rion made to her ma terial wealth and prosperity.-Chroni cle & Sentinel, 15th.

The Wilmington Slur contains the following, article upon the subject of cotton factories, winch ia entitled to the earnest attention of capitalists. No State in the Union p.obablv offers so Urge natural inducements for the establishment of cotton factories as South Carolina. The obj?ctioas that nave been raised in the past are rap idly passing away, and there is no room for doubt but that one of the *rst things done by the ne^t T : ture will be tb-j i-r-; f-.aucj i&iragementsj h > w exevj *. l.o . iron- tv . t.h?.t .- ???ii ; ?i .ir gu? i. , . \ ?u ..?2 or hear, of ;' cs in '.vhic? largs und remu nerative profit? have rewarded those who have had the foresight to embark in such enterprises, while communi ties have become prosperous and idle hands found employment through their instrumentality. In our neigh boring State of ?eorgia, we find that the Eagle and Phoenix Manufacturing Company, located in Columbus, re port profits equal to twenty-four per ceut. of the e..piral invested, by the operations of the past year, while tue Columbus Manufacturing Compa ny report 23 per cent.; and the Ros well Factory 9 per cent, for the last six months of 1S72. The factories of Macon and Augusta have also been steadily yielding handsome profits, which we have every assurance will compare favorably with those of tho factories at* Columbus. In Virginia, where these factories ave in operation, the results have been equally encour aging. In fa?t, we have reliable data ro the effect thet the cotton mill in Petersburg, which runs one hundred looms and ?iree thousand and twen ty-two spindles, yielded a net profit in 1872 of 25 per ceut.-on its capital stock. The reports from Northern mills, where the facilities for running them are nothing to compare wi"h our own, the profits ar? said.to have been from eight to twelve per ceLt. for the year just closed. There is every inducement for our people to invest in enterprises of this charac ter. There can be no such word a? fail, as what can be accomplished iii Georgia, Virginia- and other Stat( s can most assuredly bo accomplished lier??. There can certainly be no i?. vestment which will be .-o certain and satisfactory in its results, or oi .> calculated to add more speedily ai Y :;.?( tuai ly to the commercial impoi . lance ot our city, than one or :noi well cond ctcd cotton factories.

A WESTERN GIRL'S GRIT.-A young man from a New Brunswick city, who has been visiting in Mil waukee, Wis., recently, passed Ban gor, on his way home wit h. a fail daughter of the West, to whom he had been engaged, and who he was takiug to his provincial hume to s bow to his fond parents. Ile took Iv* to his father's house ; the father lo dred coldly on her, and the young man quit "the paternal roof, loudly pro testing that he would take Ms girl to the States, and after procuring the services of a clergyman, proceeded to win bread forvhims.elf and t':eidol of his affection. But the fellow had been so influenced by the papa's threats of disinheritance that hfi- in wardly resolved to send the poor girl off to shirk for herself. In pursu ance of this plan, he, on the .arrival of the train at Vanceboro, re-checked his trunk to his home and waiting: on the platform till the last moment, he let the train go on, and -took the- ' next train back. The girl, on discov ering the cruel 'desertion of har lover,, t.. ok the matter cool ly and "with genuine giit. She told a confident whom she uad made on the train that,. W-and-by, she would come back and put a revolver bullet through-that young man's heart if it cost'her alife sentence in the provincial peniten tiary.
