-The Kew York Tribune says: "The yel-1 r.
low lerer exists at New Orleans In a malignant
form. There Is hardly a question of Ibis, j r
ttaongh the Kew Orleans papers deny it, and
the board of health of that city conceal the
presence of the epidemic. The news of the
existence of the yellow fever in Kew Orleans
as an epidemic was Bent to Kew York by a
lady, whose son is travelling agent for a large
business house here. The Information had
been obtained by the lady from her family
physician, a prominent member of the board
of health. She ascertained from him that the a
board of health had discussed the propriety of e
awking the matter public; that one of the C
members had advocated the publication of the ?\
fact that the disease exleted In order that the Q
people In other sections of the country might j
be warned of the danger, and enabled to take
such precautionary measures as they deemed
advisable; and that the opponents of this policy
based their claim to have the matter kept 11
secret.on the ground that any excitement re- 1
salting from the matter, becoming known, ll
would be detrimental to buslne s Interests.'( n
-Diamonds continue to be rumps In South c
Africa, and correspondents write home the 3
most dazzling descriptions of the riches that p
are walting to be gathered up on these far-off
coasts. The Cape Standard Bays that the dis?
coveries are now simply enormous. Steam
engines vare now used for Blftlng eart i to get
the precious stones, and, lt seems, w,th sue
cess. A gentleman writes from Du Tt it's Pan
that he sees, newly-found diamonds of from
twenty to sixty carats every day. At one
place some men bought a claim lor ri
Ure hundred dollars and In lest than v
a month took out of it slxt.-three e
stones, including some ot fifteen carats r
andover. A poor man came out fro'a En,
land with barely money enough to ke -p him a
fortnight. In three months he went home
worth a quarter of a million of dollars.
Another correspondent writes that he ls pur
chasing all the stones he caa fi id tor the
American market. There are abo :t twenty (
diamond merchants on the field now, and s
lhere is no difficulty in the miners ee ling their 1
"finds" at a good price on the spot. Already
they have bowling-alleys,market3, ftc,anda
co?fcany is about to introduce a system of
water-pipes in the various "farms." This
reads like a description of El Dorado, and the ? t
only danger is that the ardent imaginations ol
the lucky fellows may indirectly lead many (
hundreds ol less fortunate ones to ruin.
-The London press continues to discuss the C
aspect or the Continental situation. The Times
considers lt unquestionable that lhere may yet 1
be a chance for thc Bonapartes, but regards J
the action of the church and the decline ot 1
military prestige in France as ui avoruble f
omens lor Napoleon. A correspondent de- 1
scribes the Imperial meeting at l-alzburg, and
affirms that the result was not so great as ? t
imaginative people have Supposed it, and yet
enough*ras done to guarantee a common poli?
cy for the future, and this without making a ' '
formal alliance, offensive or defensive. King
Amadeus seems to have made a successful
thing out of his royal tour. His pro?
gress bas been attended with enthnslatic
popular demonstrations; but on one occasion
rte hitl to submit to a humiliating snubbing,
administered by the bishop and c?ergy of
Valencia. Prince Napoleon'* new pamphlet,
according lo ihe London Echo, is a u.-elul con?
tribution to the secret history of the recent
war.-It shows Denmark to have been the first
and-Italy the last hope of the French Emperor. ,,
The Echo also ?ives an interesting sketch ol
the Communist refngees-in London. Their
"club-room" is within a bow t-hot of Oxford
street, and lhere they ipeet-doctor*, editors
students, iraaesmen, all nuder the same ban- I '
converse with feverish enthusiasm, ?nd drink I '.
deep loaats to Universal Fraternity. One
plays, another reciles Barbier'? burning
tbemes, or sings tender-old French love songw,
while olhers hurl eccentric diatribes at la lie
spectabiliie and clink glasses at allusions lo
Ia hore Angleterre. A sprinkling of ihe gri
aelie element perfects the thoroughly Parisian
i tmosphere of the club.
-The Ulai or the first batch ol so-called
p?troleuses ol the Paris Commune was con?
cluded at Versailles on the 51 h of September.
The prisoners, five In number, were Charged
with complicity In and assisting at the in cen- [
diaries and assassinations which took place,
between the Kd'aBd 23d of May at the Pakce
ol the Legion of Honor and at a number of
private residences wnicn were named In the
charge. The prisoners "were women upon
whose faces," says a correspondent, "debauch?
ery had placed its Irremovable stamp; the
youngest DJ twenty-four years ol age, and the
eldest thirty-nine. They were all dressed in
black, or some very dark-colored stuff,
looked unhealthy, and seemed to take more
ot ihe interest of a looker-on in the trial
than that ol the persons most concerned.*' The
women denied the grave charges brought by
the prosecution, and claimed to be cantinieres
and ainbulancitres in the .service of the Com?
mune. The evidence against them was a mass
of heresay, fact and surmise, wit!- notblng ol
any importance proved, which would not
have been admitted as testimony in any
American court. The prisoners were all, with
one exception, unmarried. One of them was
a dressmaker, another a pasteboardmaker,
another a seamstress, and two were laundress?
es. The prisoners were lound guilty by the
court, and three were sentenced to death, one
to transportation to a fortress, and the last to
ten years' solitary confinement. It is thought,
however, that these sentences will be commut?
ed to transportation for life. 'Sm? prisoners
received their sentences in tears, but did not
attempt to speak.
A Hoax of the First Water.
The tidal-wave prediction, which struck
: -?rror into the souls of the old ladies ol both
sexes, especially along the Gulf coast, is a
rehash of a sensational dish prepared for an?
other locality and another season. An old
naval officer in the English service was the
original seer, and announced that the mighty
wave would submerge the coast or Albion on
October 5,1869. A paper on the subject ap?
peared in the London Daily News of Sep?
tember 27, 1869, which speaks of the anx?
ious questionings which the subject has
awakened, and shows that there was no
cause for the alarm felt. The paper is from
the pen of Professor R. A. Proctor, who said
that on the 5th of October ol the year in
question the sun and moon wonld be in such
position as to be favorable for the production
of high spring tides. "But, after all," he
add9, "high tides depend very importantly
"on other considerations than astronomical
"ones." He then speaks of a predicted high
tide'some two years before, which turned
out io be a very insignificant affair. As for
predicted weather changes, any length of
Lime in advance, he regards them as "mere
"moonshine," and altogether unreliable.
This article from the London Ae irs ls repro
iuced entire in Proctor's work, entitled
"Light "Science for Leisure Honrs," from
ivhich work, when it appeared in the North,
he new tidal-wave story was undoubtedly
nanufactured. The scene was cbaDged to
his side of the Atlantic, and Agassiz, a
'heavy swell" in science, became its puta
ive parent. There is, however, positive
>roof that Agassiz made no such prediction,
md any one who new feels alarm, in conse
juence of the mythical prophecy, will, on or ?
ibout the 7th proximo, confess that bis cour?
se was cooled by a hoax of the first water.
The Columbia. Ring.
Tue-Columbia Radicals are in bot water,
t seems that the city officials, all Radicals,
lave determined to erect a new City Hall
,nd Market, for which they propose to pay
xorbitant prices. The contractor for the
lity Hall is Mr. Allen, the Radical senator
>r Greenville County, whose price is $138,
00, although it is believed the work can be
ooe for $75,000. A Bimilar margin is found
i the contract for the new market, and the
Vicente, backed by the taxpayers, demands
hat the plans and specifications of both
uildings be submitted to a committee of
isinterested citizens. We are afraid that the
lovement-although eminently proper-will
ome to naught. The thick-hided Radicals
cout public epinioD, and, as long as their
ardoning frier.il Scott is Governor, do not
ven fear the Penitentiary.
In a Peck of Trouble.
Our Savunnah neighbors seem to be sadly
a need of municipal reform. A correspon
ent of the Morning Xews informs that jour
al that the bonded debt of Savannah is
learly three millions, while the taxable prop*
rty of the city is valued at lesa than fifteen
miltons. The gross expenses and expendi
ures of the City of Savannah for the past
bree years amount to very nearly eight mil
ion dollars, and the excited taxpayers cry
>ut for immediate retrenchment. Savannah,
n a municipal sense, is as hard up as
Charleston, but, at least, she ha lad a re?
spectable city government, which we shall
lot get until the first week in November.
The Darlington Fair.
The Darlington County Fair will be held at
he Courthouse on the 4th and Dth October.
?Ve are informed by the secretary that the
3horaw and Darlington Railroad carries, free
)f charge, articles intended for exhibition,
ind that the Wilmington and Augusta Rail
oad carries them at half rates. The pas
lenger fares have been reduced on both
oads. Ample accommodations are provided,
it the Fuir Grounds, for stock, produce and
nacbinery, and care has been taken to con?
sult the convenience of exhibitors a9 well a3
.he plea-sure of the public. On the opening
lay General F. M. Law will deliver an ora
.ion, and ou the second day the premiums
will be awarded. Darlington evidently in?
tends to show of what stuff her good citi?
zens are made.
Ca?h va. Credit.
The Wilmington Journal reduces its sub?
scription price to SS u year, and gives no?
tice that it will require that all subscriptions
be paid in advance. This is the way to make
money. A newspaper which is afraid to in
3ist upon prepayment has no confideuco in
?ts own strength, and flabby journals, as tLe
public know, are not worth the postage.
These journals throw in long-cr?dit as a bribe
.o a reluctant public, and make up their sub?
scription list of folk who don't intend to pay,
and folk who can't. Neither class, we may
venture to remark, will support a live and
WE understand that the prizes to be dis?
tributed to exhibitors at the State Fair,
which will be heldm Columbia on November
6, are valued at S7000. Honor is something
substantial, when it comes iu the guise of a
silver tankard, a gold medal or a roll of green?
backs, and so, exhibitors will find it.
TUB A uga Bia Chronicle and Sentinel wants J
to know whether ex-Governor Orr fllgried the
ordinance o? sec ess km.
-Governor Orr was a delegate to the Se?
cession Convention, and served on the com?
mittee appointed to draft the ordinance of
secession. The ordinance was passed by a
unanimous vote, and was signed by all the
members of the Convention.
A Philological Problem.
The intelligent follower of the events ol the
last war in Europe will recall some of the more
noticeable philological difficulties that lay in
the way of a clear and impartial understanding
of who was who and what was what, among
the individuals and localities that figured in
the conflict. These troubles may always be
anticipated in the case ol a foreign war, the
more's the pity; but la the case of some foreign
wars, the difficulties arising from the atrocious
spelling of some of those foreign words would
be Immeasurably increased. Here, for instance,
comes the reported Russian preparations lor
war against Austria. What may be anticipated
should these two nations, with their unpro?
nounceable proper names, and names of towns,
come into collision ! Already we are told that
the Russian fortifications at the railway sta?
tions ol Radzlulilow and WolocyBk are rapidly
proceeded with, and that the former ls the last
station towards the frontier of the-pause and
way. If these things be thus at the beginning,
what may be expected before the campaign ls
over ? Let the Imagination rest for a moment
upon the result of a forward movement ol the j
Russian army into Gallicia, with its nest of lin?
gual impossibilities, and picture lt as skirmish?
ing at Zaleszekzyky, flighting a pitched battle
at Brzezany, retreating from Szczurowice. and
performing prodigies of valor at Rzeszow, not
to mention the result of filtering these mon?
sters of language through the cable.
Th? English Postal Cards.
TheEogMsh experiment of the half-penny
postal card system has proved to be very suc?
cessful, although it ls not without its features
of evil. These cards are cream-colored, and
about the size of an ordinary envelope. Upon
one side are printed directions to the writer of |
the message, the head of the Queen, and the
coat-of armh 01 England; the obverse side ls
left blank for the message. When the card is
written, it is put in the poslofflce or in the
nearest lamp-post box, and in two hours is de?
livered at ita destination, it anywhere in Lon?
don. All this costs only a half-penny, or one
cent of our money. Within the last six months
58,465,960 cards have been sold in England by
the government, giving a revenue of nearly
?122,000. The objectionable features of the
postal card 1B, that the messages written upon
them are necessarily not private, and that the
cards may be used-as they frequently are
for the purpose of sending vulgar and libellous
messages (^Individuals by anonymous scrib?
blers, who may have a spite against the recip?
ient ol such messages. When a man can safely
be mean for one cent, average human nature
finds lt difficult to resist the temptation.
