than stout card-board. lu one case the surface

An Old Foe with a. New Face.
Tlie proposal to consolidate the Greenville
and Columbia and the Blue Bidge Railroads
is, ia itself, an open confession that the Green?
ville Birg have given up all hope of passing
their two million swindling Bill. But they
expect to accomplish their purpose in
another way. They now ask that the two
roads be -consolidat?d, and that the State
waive its lien upon, the Blue Bidge Boad.
This appears to be a bigger job" than the
original Greenville Bill. The consolidation
of the roads, coupled with a relinquishment
of the Stat? lien, would give the consolidated
company four milliou of guaranteed bonds,
free of all restrictions as to time .md price of
sale, and would deprive the State of that mort?
gage which i3 its sole security for the bonds
guaranteed for the BJue Ridge Company.
This is "our understanding of- the. pew- Bill. I
? ;. (? ?. . "? - ? i* i! * .- ? M
Its last state is worse than its first. '
The honest members of the General As- |
sembly may safely regard with suspicion
every measure which comes from the Railroad
Ring. A -great victory ia won ; it remains
to follow it up with vigor and discretion.
The incorruptible few in the Senate and
House must stand at their posts without.
lunching, and this session of the Legislature
will pass' without subtracting one dollar
from the assets of the State, and without
adding one dollar to the public liabilities.
A Corporation that ls -N'o Corporation.
We print in another column the modest
Bill "relating to the Port Boyal Bailroad'
"Company." This Bill is first cousin io
the; Greenville swindle, and bas at least
this merit, that, without equivocation, it
gives the Port Royal Road "one million
"dollars" in the bonds of the State. This
Bill will not pass, but we desire to direct j
attention to the fact that the General As?
sembly, in taking any notice .of the Port
Royal Railroad Company, and in consid?
ering its applications for the public money,
is dealing with a corporation which Aas
no legal existence..
The net" to amend "An act to charter
the Port Royal Railroad Company, ratified
December 21, 1857," which was approved
by Governor1 Scott on February, 2S, 1370,
provides (section 2) "that tho'time for the
"completion of said Railroad is hereby ex
"tended to August 1, 1371-t ?-orided, FIFTY
'"MILER ARE COMPLETED FROM THE TOWN* OT.
"BEAUFORT ox OR BEFORE JANUARY FIRST;
"EIGHTEEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-ONE. "
This is plain and emphatic. The charter
of the company, and its privileges, are
made to depend upon the completion of j
"fifty miles" of the road "from the Town
"of Beaufort," by the 1st of January, 1671.
But the company have failed to comply
with this fundamental condition of the act
of 1S70. Fifty railes of lue road, from
the Town of Beaufort, were not completed
by January I, 1871. This i3 an evident
fact. Moreover, it is confessed in the Bill
"relating to the Port Royal Railroad Com
"pnuy," which provides (paragraph 3)
"that the proviso heretofore enacted where
"by the said company waa required to
"complete fifty miles of their railroad by
"the 1st day of January, 1871, is hereby
"repealed, and the time for the comple?
tion of the whole road is extended to
"the 1st day Of January, 1873.". This is
a frank acknowledgment of the truth.
Unless the company had failed to com?
plete the road as required by the act of j
1870, it would bc sheer nonsense to. re?
peal that con Ution, and give the company
an extension of time, for part as well Es
for whole, to January, 1873.
We hokL, therefore, that the General
Assembly, in dealing on this 3d of March,
1671, with the Port Boyal Railroad Com
pan5', i3 negotiating or bargaining with a
concern which has no legal existence be?
cause of Its fuilare to comply with a laa
damental condition of the act of February,
.? Two-Thirds of the Member?. "
The interpretation placed upon section 7.
of article UV of the State Constitution by*
: hos?;- who ? hold, with ns,- that the i ufa roo ua
Glanville -Bill requires th* support ol ?p?*
thircls of. the whole number of the members
of both branches of the General Assembly
before it can become a law, and that there?
fore the bill has not. yet passed the House
at all, would seem to be confirmed by the
record of the Legislative proceedings on all
bills involving an increase of State liability
that have been passed since the new consti?
tution-was adopted. ID every such instance
within our knowledge, and especially, be it
observed, iu the case of the "bill to author?
ize additional aid to the Blue Ridge Railroad
Company," a measure analogous, in its gen?
eral features, to the Greenville Bill, the
journals show the number of those voting in
the affirmative to have been two-thirds, not
merely or the members voting, but of the
whole number of the members of the House.

THBJDRVPTOBRAH.-. By James fte Mflle, author
oft 'Thojpodg* Cluttr ftcV Ifdw YOPR\:
Harper ft crothers. '**
.*?Mr.^ilkie Collins has done much to demor?
alize the respectable fiction of the day. When
that Very ""cl?v?r hovepst ?oncTesS?fTded to
apply the great resources of a fertile fancy and
a vivid and-picturesque Imagination to-the
embellishment and Justification of a purely
ephemeral and mechanical style of art-when
he became. in fljtct, ar mitch of a -"Sylvanuj,
CobS as ii was possible' for ay writer cannie
really fine ability to be-he opened a breach in
the walls of legitimate fiction through which lt
required no prophet's vision to foresee would
soon be poured that tide of barbarian invasion
which had so long been Inundating the border
land of New York Ledgers and Dime romances.
Of all the Goths and Vandals, however, who
are thus intruding with sacrilegious feet Into
the charmed circle, Mr. James De Mille ls,
perhaps, the mest mischievous. Not that he
ls immoral, in the conventional sense ; on the
contrary, his literary bill ol fare is, in this re?
spect, as milk for babes. Not that he encour?
ages a breach of great OF' rittiri laws'- life vil?
lains are all systematically punished, and his
good people receive a thousand fold for their
wrongs. We object to him because he delibe?
rately sits down and Invites an unsuspecting
public to sup with him, not ? la Barmecide,
but /nil of horrors ; because treasons, strate
gems and spoils, murders, forgeries, abduc?
tions and revenges chase each other pell-mell
through numberless pages ; because lrom first
to last he tells us "an empty tale, full of sound
and fury, and signifying-nothing/' And,
finally, we object to him because all this far?
rago of absurdities, in which every canon ol'
probability, every law of art, is ruthlessly aud
utterly set at naught, is presented to us as
first-class American novel-writing, and as an
object, not of criticism, but o? admiration.
Throughout the interminable chapters of "The
"Cryptogram" we look in vain for any snell
vivid types of character as we are accustomed
to find in Wilkie. Collins. No Count Fosco
mitigates with his charming insouciance the
extravagant sensationalism of the soi-disant
"plot"-no Captain Wragge makes us forget
the murky atmosphere of crime and horror
through which we stagger lo the bitter end.
Instead ol this, we have the stiffest of lay
figures and the most hackneyed of puppets,
responding with lantastic jerks to every pull of
the string by the deus ex maohin?, whom the
clumsily shitted scenery scarcely conceals.
We can hardly imagine a more utter waste ol
time than the reading of this book would in?
volve. It should only be resorted to by the
most determined advocate of the dolce far

Anthony Trollope, author of "Barchester

Mr. Trollope's last novel is very nearly
worthy of his fame, and will rank with the
best of his shorteF tales. It displays many of
his peculiar excellencies ; is told in his usual
pleasant, though now somewhat affected man?
ner, and will find many sympathetic readers.
He has used the same set of characters be?
fore ; but he dresses them differently on the
present occasion, and they play their trivial
part very gracefully.
