It is a signi8cant'henomenon of the
age that in England and all over Europe
the old reverence for aristocraCy, and
that aristocratic exclusiveness which has
comedown tous as a relic of feudal times,
is rapidly dying out. This decay of an
old and deeply rooted feeling is, it must
be confessed, chiedy due to a change of
sentiment among the privileged classes
tbemselves. Less than a hundred years
ago in England, it was the custom for the
nobility to look down on wealth as some
thing any tradesman might obtain, and
to prefer pedigree and privilege to all
things - but after these to exalt intellec
tna6, or still better, artistic po*er.
An old peer had rather a - pride in con
trastinghis poverty with the nabob's,
er h ta' wealth, as showing how
little social position depended upon
nheb at acidprnta'circumstance as the
amoent of his-rent-roll. To realize how
totalhrtbis feeling has changed, we have
only to note the present temper of the

The World publishes the recent
speech of General Alcorn, Senator elect
from Mississippi, setting forth some
startling facts for the consideration of
the Reptblican party. It conteents
upon the words of the Senator, who is
the acknowledged leader of his party in
theJouth-in the following languaget
In this speech the orator sets forth
and proves that the Southern cotton in
terest-which, in the palmy days of the
republic, before the rebellion, used to
bring into the country an annual sum of
$250,000,000, gold-has been all but de
molished by that collision ; that since
the outset gf the war, a colossal conspir
acy, initiated by British capitalists and
manufacturers, encouraged by the British
Government, and joined in by the gov
ernments and capitalists of other na
tions, has been at work for the estab
lishment of cotton culture abroad, and
the breaking down of the American cot
ton monopoly ; that this conspiracy has
so far succeeded that, even in 1864,
thirty-nine sources, exclusive of the
United States, contributed, for instance,
to the supply of cotton at Manchester ;
that Austraila, Jamaica, French West
Indies, Greece, Turkey, Brazil, Portugal,
Morocco, Egypt, Italy, Austria (on the
Adriatic) Hayti, Malta, Japan, China
ard Venezuela were among the produ
cers; that the average fibre of foreign
cotton, in fourteen instances, was equal,
for average purposes of manufacture, to
the American fibre ; and that in several,
and in fact most of the countries named.
etton can be cultivated and exported to
England at cheaper rates than American
planters, since the downfall of slavery
and u+.der present conditions, can aford.
These are the merest skeletonic sugges
tions of the numerous sledge-hammer
facts-each riveted by a quotation from
the - most rectr.t official authorities
lhrougL"t the world--with which Gen
eral Alcorn seeka to pound the conviction
into the minds of mun in the United
tates that the war, and tihe policy of
repression pursued by Congrest ir the
south after the war, has not only par!
yzed an induat-y-which once sent out
f the country three-foertha of its ex

We have received the initial number ,f.the
Nineteenth Century. Its appearance is not
Inferior to the best Northern work of the
same class, while its matter Is original, logia
cal and piquante. Rich veins of rhetoric,
humor and pathos run through its pages.and
the reader arises therefrom cheerfully re
freshed and invigorated. We were charmed
and thrilled by "the Old Lawyer's Story."
and amused by the grtesque, comic vein in
"Sooty-graphs." 'Reminicences of Con,
federate Camps and Fields, by Personne," are
exceedingly interesting. The editorial de
partment is an epitome of varied Informa
tIon, and It sparkles with the sclntillations of
wit, sentiment and lore. We announced
thetab.leof contents last week. The sub'
scription prie of(the Centurylis g3-50) per

this week the death of another one of our
aged and most estimable citizens, the
Rev. Thomas W. Munnerlyn, who was
far advanced in age, and had been many
years a local preacher in the Methodist
Church. He died on the morning of the

Another sweet flowerhas been transplan ted
to the garden of the Lord. As the choicest
flowers are gathered when opening into full
bloom and fragrance, lest they be destroyed
by some rude blast, so does the Angel
Reaper gather into his sheaf the young and
innocent, lest they be despoiled of their
beauty by sin.
The sweet simplicity and unaffected earn
estness of little Annie made her attractive
to strangers, whilst her uniform amiability
and heart-felt affection endeared her to the
home circle, and those more intimately ac
quainted. She loved the Sabbath School,
and to sing its sweet hymns; prompted by
this love, she-had expressed the desire, in
a former sickness to be buried near the
church dear to her from such associations.
The same wreath, prepared for the corona
-tion of her sister as Queen of May, was
placed upon her bier, and the same dress
arranged for her appearance on that Ies
tive occasion, enshrouded her for the tomb.
Such is life I
As she first claimed her place in the fam

Dear Annie has only "gone before," and

* * * * * We had wandered for
many hours through tangled forests of
Tropical shrubs and trees,. some of them
emitting a most delicious and invigorating
odor, when we suddenly came upon a large
and well eultiastEd plantation, in the cen
tre of which were several buildings. Enter
ing these, we found them to be the "press
houses," still?, &c., where the su_ar cane
is crushed for the manufacture of St. Croix
Rum. Over 100 Coohes were at work, and
the smell from the fomenting rats was very
exhilaratingand pleasant. We were shown
through the entire establishment, and learn
ed that all the Rum here produced was
shipped to Messrs. P. H. Drake & Co., New
York, to be made into their celebrated
Plantation Bitters. The. peculiar good ef
fects of this Rum-which is the purest and -
best in the world-ar. well-known. Not
asiugle ease of byspepsia, Fever and Ague,
Consumption, or any such disease can be
fdund on this Island, (e+cept of invalids -a
come here for their health, ar.d they are a
almost always cured). Combined with Gal- ;
ieaya Bark, Cascarilla, and other impor- t
tant Ingredients, this Rum becomeb Plants- I
tion Bitteis ; and surely no finer Tonic and
general Family Remedy was ever seen. a
The combination of these Bitters was first
liscovered bere -many years ago, and all I
the W,tives swear by Plantation. Bitters,
and say "therd is nothin: like it." Judg
ing by the-robust health of the witntesses, I
am certain their Aestimony is true.
