Indent tn travel, prepare the way f -r contentment and cheerfulness in de gree Mulnoient to enable UK to repeat th* lard's prayer without one rebellious .motion. Well, New York ia the ?ame wicial tor nado that it I; ?is ever been since the great flr? of The ?ad and the gay. the busy sud the Idle, the studious und the ignorant, the avaricious and the luxn ri"!!?, all disdaining the mail? and the mail?, aroora io take tito tel? graph for thc m n of thoir counsel and imitation. 1 i never had any conception of a city until v i I had reached this restless and over grown placa. The din, the bustle, the ?oiifusion and the delirium pervading .very inch of thia focus of the New World, made mo ?Pen m7 ey?s and sigh for some situation on th? silent sands of Sahara. Soon, however, thin "feverUh uprett" becomes contagion* and even pleasant. Tho most quiet stranger quiokly learns to float upon ?thin surging wave of modern civilization No man ar" ust? will visit New York without trying to see lier great Central Park. Ii is the lungs of the Metr?poli?, and so handsomely and cunningly em bellished os to suggest an idea of tbe tint Paradise whero Adam and Eve spent their honeymoon with the light of p?rf ct innocence upon their brows, and the glow of genuine happiness in their hearts. The carriage way?, the bridle paths and the pedestrian promenades re veal many a view of enchanting loveli ness, easy tQ imagine, but hard to de scribe. This famous pleasure ground, on January 1st, 1?T4, had cost $13,902,013. It comprise? SfaO acre?, of which 143 aro aivered hythe Croton resevoirs and over 4:> acre? by the waters of the artificial lake* The Park ia divided Into two parts by th? new reservoir. The South ern portion of the grounds ha? been beautified most, but the Northern ktc tiou is not without sotno peculiar attrac tion?. The Mall is a level, broad and ?haded walk, starting just East of a magnifi cent marble arch, and extending North ward for nearly a quarter of a mile. It passes under the carriage drive which is here upheld by a stone terrace, itsolf an elegant and costly structure. The Mall ha* on each side a double row of Elm trees. To the South of the Mall there in a point which commands a view through this long walk, across the terrace, the lake, the higher ground of the ramble beyond, and terminating where a lofty ower bas been erected at the edge of the reservoir. This vista is the glory of the landscape sardanlrm in tL?t I*?rk, ?ml ii ld so ingeniously arranged a* to make one think the distance is several mile? instead of about a quarter of a in ile. In obtaining this effect, great regard was had to the proportions of the Mall, and also to the color of the foliage about the heights of tho ramble. The statuary makes these lovely prospects seem to be haunted by thelmind, the beauty, the genius, the reminiscence, the civiliza tion and peculiarities of every land and dime. Here j? Sir Wal'er Scott careless ly leaning upon H rock end lo*t i?> thought ; th' r? is Shakspeare with coins sal brow and an eagle eye ; amoru: th? tall trees, the Indian hunter ia seen look ing eagerly for bis game; near one of the entrances to the Park, Alexander Von Humbolt seems to gaze at the uni verse with untold nftectlon ; near the Merchants* gate, the Rtatueof Commorce carries the imagination to every nation ality beneath the sun ; among the dow ering shrubbery, Robert Burns is think ing nf Mary in Heaven ; not far away from the dusty drive, Daniel O'Connell inusos with troubled brow over the wrongs of Erin ; the Falconer revives annie of the scenes of tho middle ages; and tho tigres* in bronze carryinp food to her cubn bring* Hindoostan bofore the eye of the mind. The most romantic and the most sur prising locality, that I could find, 1? f the Cave" at the Northwestern extremity of the Park. ?hls ia partly artificial and partly natural. After going down a steep path, the visitor enters a gloomy cavern ; turning to the left and walking on, the Min light is quieViy regained at a secluded point upon th?. Lake. Running up a flight of rough stone Pteps, he leaves the rave by another route, which lead* under a wran Ka arch connecting a brace of vine covered eliffs. I was so much pleased with this far-famed cavo that I had to pass through it th- second time. The Rum bio i ? a mazy labyrinth of parallel paths made cool, fragrant and umbrage ous by forest trees, glistening evergreen?, clinging vines and millions of sweet (lowers. Bewildered, and yet perfectly at home communing with nature, you begin to think all your ploasant dreams have been true prophets. But even here there i* nothing like perfect repose. You hear the uproar of the datant city, and to this is added such a chorus of screech ing, bellowing and roaring as to startle you from some? entrancing reverie. TaW iug the hint, you hasten to the Zoological Garden? to soo the monkey and the elo phant. The newspapers und merchants of this great mart are du<cussing tho probabili ties of a trade revi. al. They say it will come next fall ; but toe wish is no doubt fa Mi er to the opinion. Whether com merce be depressed or buoyant, the Mer chant Princes h?re always manage to get Che bulk of our cotton money. Tftat is tho lion's ?hare, and these ?barp trader? ought to be satisfied with it. On the olker hand, we of the South ought to de vote one season to a ri^id economy aud a .hort crop of cotton backed by an over flowing crop of grain. Let us do this in self-defence, and as a matter of choice. Such a policy would make us iudopend . ont and self-reliant for generations to como. A united effort in that directicn would enable ns to throw off the yoke of financial 'thralldom, which is moro so ductive and more injurious then political vassalage. The bankrupt law has been repealed, and we must show the world that no such statute is needed in our aection of the country. I caa see that Broadw: y is not bo f mucti"<ro vded?s in'tho-o?yr of tore: j The city limits have beeu extended, and " then the elevated Tailway relieves tin? j principal thoroughfare* of many u -* throng ot people You -gev-ni. .Mir?e ''.tiights of steps to board- tb? uHd-air and the squeeze below, j'ou catch every stray breeze, and ciao see what the New Yorkers have for dinner above stairs. And. thhj is the rapid transit, about which so" muci'ha? "boenSprinted in our metropolitan journals. The T? ii m ber and va: ie ty of-walking advertisements here is always^'amusing, and sometimes instructive. The devo teeS&pp'fashitm facilitate commercial transactions in a wonderful manner. The p^or man throws oft* his coat, and swings a couple of huge placards from his shoulders to let the world knew what h's employer lias to sell. I do believe there are men here who would walk for a Doctor and an Undertaker, at the same time, by suspending a skeleton at his breast, and a coffin at his back. Philadelphia is an interesting city. Its history and its associations are thrilling and suggestive. I stopped here on Wed nesday last to revisit the scene of our big show. The main building, the Art Gallery, Horticultural Hall and Machin ery H?U still look bright, stately and elegant, but tho Centennial Grounds are worse neglected, and seem more lone some than I expected. A nameless beauty and an indescribable glory have winged their Hight to oV\er climes, and thither has the great world, with it* elude st products, congregated, and set up new temples of art and of science. Asl ^trolled alone the familiar avenu*?? and the shady pathways, vlowlnir th* relies <>f departed splendor, I seemed tn be walkinir in a dream. Had I boen asleep a hundred year? and come tn? shabby bi-centennial, typical of our Na tional decay ; or had the contennary ex position been protracted until Ichabod had knocked the whole adair into "pi?" On H card huntr up in the stree' car thnt carried mo to the main entrance, T read thin notice: "The Permanent Interna tional Exhibition, covwrinvr twenty-ni e ?ere* of exhibits, machinery in motion, with music and otlyir attractions, is op< n for the seaton of 1S7?"." And if I had not seen tho Centennial ir. its bloom; I could have enjoyed this exhibit of fine ry and machinery, the paintings and tho? statues, the appliances to luci li tito edu ction and tho thousand and - one exotics of softest hues and rarest perfumes, to say nothing of thc mu-ic, whicli seuned to vi? wi*h tho dulcet and exulting strains of 1ST.' ! I was glad to see that the quaint, unique and beautiful facade of tho Egyptian exhibit has been loft un touched iu tho main building. The Spanish front als~> remains to remind ono of the past. Both the Egyptian and the Spanish frontige illustrate the Na tional architecture, and di lier only as ono star difforelh from another. I was rejoiced bu? "o behold once more tho fine collection ot animais, shrubbery and minerals belonging to Mrs. Maxwell, the great Rocky Mountain huntress. This exhibit, which is characteristic ol the far Wost, is well worthy of a ven* <. ireful examination. I never expect t ? see a more brilliimt specimen of archi tecture than Horticultural Hall : if I do, I will try to desi be it in full. From Washington to Now York, the railway seems to bc lined with citiei, towns, and villages, and their suburb'. Wilmington Delaware, is au important manufacturing city. Near it on the Delaware Bay, there are some of tl o handsomest building sites in A merit a. The sinning waters of the bay are bound ed by broad, undulating meadows, which rise gently to a considerable elevation where the succeeding plateau commsni's a magnificent viow of tho surrounding country. Baltimore is a thriving city, and a mero glance at the placo gires in timation of a grand destin}'. Washing ton City looks almost dosolato now. " Undo Sam" has closed his law-making shop, for thc season, and pei ht'ps nota singlo individual, outside of tho Capi tal, is sorry for that. In fact, \> caro in jured by an excess of legislation. Wc are more interested itt the enforcement of law, than in tho framing of additional statutes. Let the' people govern them .joives iu private, and then matty of the public laws will bo laughed at as a dull joke 9 Itravolled from Greenboro, N. C., io Culpcpper, Va., in thc night. Tilts mid land route includes Lynchburg among the stations and depots of the linc. But it was too dark to see that placo at all This was a disappointment to mc, asl wanted to glance at that section of the "Old Dominion." NearCulpeperC.il , there is a fine view ol' the Blue Ridge Mountains. The grain fields, thc mead ows, tlie hay ricks, the little corn and absence of cotton, showed that a nights travel had taken us fur away from th* long-leaf pines A shower ol' rain fell daring tho night and thus we saw the country to an advantage, and without being blinded by clouds of dust. " Ma nassa Junction," exclaimed the Con ductor at an unpretending railroad vil lage. The man of tickets seemed io be suddenly converted into ono of the heralds of history, and as such, I wanted to ask him a few questions. But ho was too busy to talk about mc haunted locales of this region. A friendly darke}' in formed me that tho battle grounds were f .ur or five miles to the Northwest, and t'tithrr my visual organs were naturally turned. But naught like ghostly shad ow?, or the red dragons of war wore to b ? aeen. Nothing in sight but tho quiet landscape and the soft, blue skies of a peaceful Heaven ! From the Congarce to the heart ol North Carolina, last Tuesday, the roads were dry and dusty. The crops of this section are not green and tlourishinp like those of good old Edgefield. I have so?>n no rogion of country looking more attractive than the pine vicinity and the Ridge neighborhood. Columbia look? rather dull. When the Legislature hands begin to assomble next fall from the Kist, from the Wost, from North and from the South, perhaps our State capi tal will then become the scene of a ?hon and .. quick work, undertaken for the benefit of tho toiling Taxpayers. So mott it be ! The weather is rainy in New York to day. The days being longer here than in South Carolina, I am not astonished to find tho heat moro intense in this etty than in Edgefield. To-morrow I sail for Europe on the Ethiopia, whit- lauds at Glasgow, Scotland. I will send yon another letter at my earliest convenience. Farewell ! And may God bless my na tive land. E.

IVIJEPEVDEXTISM IN SOUTH CAROLINA, And ali over South Carolina Independ ent candidates are popping up their heads: Men with neither patriotism nor judgment, and forgetful ol' the darknPH? and .gloom nit" the lon g night of Radical rule from which their State has but re cently emerged, are arraying them selves against the organization of tho party, .ol' law and order, and seriously threaten to imperil its success in tho coming election.

LIBERIA XOT A PARADISE. One of tho greatest cheats and delus ions of our , day is the Liberian move ment among the colored people. Utterly ignorant of the country to which they wish to emigrate, .?pd deceived and hood winked by the specious and false statements of designing persons who are trying to make money at their expense, the colored poople fall as easy prey to tho rapacious sharks, and only lind ont how terribly they have boen "sold"' when tiley fall victims to fever, or land strangers on the shores of a country that is every thing else than a land of prom ise. The New York Tribune is un intensely Radical sheet. It cannot tic suspected or working against tho colored people. It has lately inierviawed the returning United States Ministor to Liberia, who is an intelligent colored man, and who spent many years in that country. His name is J. Milton Turner, and he is a pure-blooded neg -o. What he says ought to bo believed by those of Ins own race. We vive some extracts from the pub lished interview : "Liberia." says Mr. Turner, "is a Re public, with a government modelled gen erally altor that of tho Uuited States. It is ordinarily peaceable, there having been no revolution sinon 1871, when the President and other oflicers were killed. The financial system is in a very bad ennriiiion ; the country has no money. President Gardner, in a recent in- mr ural address, said that thnre was not$<.00C in the hands of tho government. There is a debt of a million, on which (Hoy o*>? mil pay tho interest. Tho current expen ses an: more than they realizo from taxes. Tho most nf the natives are very poor and are content to remain so. The mau wears a handkerchief about Iiis loins and another at his neck. His wife is attired in the samo way, ai.d his chil dren go naked. If ho hus enough to eat he is satisfied, but he hates all intruders, as he considers those to bo who como from America." "What is your opinion of the pros pects ol' these negro colonists from America, and of the probability of thoir success !" was asked. "I think.' was ibo reply, 'that the scheme of the Emmigratinn Society, and . if ttl?* ??thor similar organisations to ool ?mize Africa from tho Southern states j.s .inn of the irrealest frauds of this centll ,-v> * e They speak the truth WII-T ihfV sav that immigrants will find the soil fertile, that constant summer pro rails, lhat there are valuable mineral*, beautiful landscapes, luxuriant vegeta tion ami tropicul fruits of every descrip tion. But they don't add that only the most primitive agricultural implements are used, finch as cutlasses, bill-hooks, tte. and that neither horses, mules ncr donkevscan stand the climate on the seacoast. Although it is summer the year through, tho miasma, caused hythe heavy rains alternating willi hot snn shine, produces sickness half the year During the rest of year the extreme heat of tho sun causes such lassitude that Tew foreigners can endure any work under lt. In fact, after ono has once had the lover-as nearly every one doe* who goes there-he is never strong again." There is a great deal moro of the same sort. This is not an encouraging viow. Our advice to the colored people is to live where you are, and work oat your destiny as best you may. It is the most hazardous and unwise thing you can ever do when you break up and go to that land of savages and sickness and extreme poverty and death. We must givo ono more extract from tho ex-Minister's account of Liberian life and theoxperienceof the unfortunate and deceived immigrant. Ile says: "These societies," answered Mr. Tur ern, "promise six months'support to the immigrants. At tho expiration of that time the colonists are left helpless and without moans of livelihood, igno rant of the ways of the cnuntrv. hating tho native and hated by him, arid proba bly sulfuring from,disease. At the de parture of every vessel for America there aro many who beg to be taken back. Tho captains refuse to carry them, even if they have money to pay their passages, for, the captains ?av. if thoy allow these men to go back, arid tell of tho actual condition of affairs in the colony, the Em migration Society will no longer employ them. And so thc inmi - grants remain to suirerand die." What a fearful picture of misery, de sertion and ruin ! There is no remedy and no relief until death comos, and thus closes tho sad tragedy. Take heed to tho warning given. Ll Nt; LEY FACTORY. Meeting of Directors-Report of ti e President.

Th? tii<^ary sUtist|jSJ of the whole civilized%orld show -irtit about one tilth of ?IBpankind dio ?t consumption alone, audi-0 number ?T deaths due to consumpt n boars a grater ratio to the whole nnjber than tlRiT'of any other three dise?s together.

The inlluence of the at mosphere- 'he only remedial agent that oithor Floila or L'oloradT>can afford the consumpti a-is at best only palliative. The cure fi consumption depends upon two chscntil conditions: 1st, the arrest of tho aha'mal breaking down of the tissues, wich prevents emaciation, and 2d, the res ?ration of healthy nutrition, in'order tt ?top the formation of tuber culous maier. Fulfill these conditions, and consu iption is as curable as fever. To fulfill 1 ese conditions the required rempdy mst increase tho appetite, favor the a simuation of food, and enrich the blood, thc] retarding the development of tubercle. To accomplish-this, a more powerful ?Iterative than Dr. Pierce's Golden Aldieal Discovery has never boen dUccrercd. At the samo time, it soothos tb]irritation of the nervous KVH tem prodded by violentcaughing, which in its tufnso often leads to "more serious results. Bio uso of " expectorants" in consumption is absolutely suicidal. For while removing the turbercles already formed, they produce yet more serious results byi??laming and destroying the sound and healthy tissues. Consump tion requires a remedy that-CHill sooth" whle it relieves, harsh medicines, but add fuel to the Hame that already threatens to consume the system. The Golden Medical Discovery fulfills these condi tions, and has been piononnced the best remedy yet discovered to allay and ar rest consumption. " COMMERCIAL. YESTERDAY'S MARKET.
