and flags and streamers ot orange and green,"
lt says: "Here is an offer to our fellow-coun?

cessions-it ls their color as well as ours. Let
ns twine them together and never hold them
apart. Let their folds rustle and wreath and
clasp each other at the wind's bidding, and as
all such intercourse must end, theirs will end
in love. Let us kill our old bad leellnz and
wrap its corpse ia a green and orange shroud,
and bury It out of sight forever."
_^ -Some European correspondent, in the
course OT 'bis ramblings up Hnd down, Las
recently allowed his footsteps to tend toward
The stately but now descried palace of Mi ta?
mar, ueur Trieste, where the ill-staired Maxi?
milian and Carlotta passed so many happy
days bef?te the Mexicun mirage arose bet?re
their bewildered right. Situated in one of Um
loveliest spots on the face ot the earth, at the
bead ot the blue Adriatic, and lurnlshed with
every comfort and luxury that money could
procure or a cultivated taste desire, the
palace of Miramar is even now, when all its
associates are so sad und gloomy, a miracle
of beauty and grandeur and very attractive
to the tourist. The grounds and gardens
are kept wiih the same scrupulous care J
as In former days. Taciturn and meian
choly domestics take the usual charge of the
apartments and exhibit their mournful splen?
dors. Mammoth oaken doors open into re?
sounding and armor clad halls. Through the
plate windows delicious views of Trieste and
the surrounding country are obtained. Clus?
ters of antique weapons, groups of portraits,
vast libraries, marble busts, and magnificent,
massive furniture meet the eye at every step.
The visitor ls shown the .'cabin,*'or favorite
room of the Archduke, with its pendant lamps,
small windows, writing-desks and wine-glass?
es intact; the throne-room, with Hs bronze
chandeliers, and the private chambers of the
' noble couple; and, as he emerges, he cannot
I but dwell with sadness upon the fate by which
so conspicuous an instance of domestic bliss
as this palace witnesses Ic years gone by was
terminated by an ignoble execution and ago
j nlzing insanity.
"Oar Natural Leude rn!"
A correspondent who deplores "the inac?
tion and supineness which pervade the
"State, at a time when energetic action
'alone can save us," suggests that this con?
dition of things is caused by the "fatal in?
action of our old men," who are "our natu?
ral leaders, and have always impressed the
"policy of inaction" upon the people.
-We agree with oar correspondent that
we have been miserably deficient in sagacity
of plan and energy of action ; but we do not I
think it right to throw the whol.' r esponsi-1
bility upon the bended backs of the "natu
.ral leade-s" or this people. They did their
best Their policy was before the public;
and they who thought that policy either
timid or unwise had full opportunity ol
stating their objections and. proposing a line
of condact botter calculated to promote
political regeneration and material prosper!
ty. The silence of the younger men was the
sign of their assent. And if they coal;! have
done more, and done better, than our "nat?
ural leaders" have done, the blame is upon
the you::j men who had not the indepen?
dence of mind to say what they thought
[Again and again, daring these troubled
1 years, have we cried :
Oh ! for an hour of our dead Dundee I
And yet we know, and see, that reverence
for age and experience goes too far when it
prevents any man, or any set of men, from
saying and writing exactly what they hon?
estly think. We want to see the fullest
I freedom of opinion-in practice as well as
1 in theory. AU the wisdom of tbe universe is
not contained in the head of any one man,
however much of a "natural leaucr be may
I be. We look to the young and untried men
for the redemption of the State. Bat until
they show that they have learned the first
lesson of trae patriotism-that of fearlessly
expressing, at ail times, their honest con?
victions-they cannot be useful workers for
tbe public good. There is nothing more
healthful for a community than free discus?
sion and independent criticism. When will
the young men make a beginning, and prove
the metal of which they are made?
The Cotton Outlook.
The shortness of the cotton crop of
1871-72, as compared with the.four and a
quarter million bales of the preening year,
has caused the price of the staple to rule
high during the winter. It is believed that
there is very little cotton left ic the country,
and quotations would undoubtedly advance
still further, only that it was thought that the
crop of next year, under the iniluence of the
large pi eilis of the present season, might
even exceed the crop of two years ago.
The planters will undoubtedly endeavor
to muke a large crop of cotton ; but their
success will mainly depend upon the char?
acter of the seasons and the efficiency of
their laboring force. There is no question
that the area planted in cotton will be
greater than the area planted last year.
We have, at present, no means of estimating
the percentage of increase. Aud against
the effects of that increased area must beset
the unfavorable nature of the spring. The
planters in this State, at least, are extreme?
ly late with their work ; "many of them being
a month or more behind time. This should
go far to neutralize the gains expected from
the additional acreage. Beyond this fact
we have no precise and definite information
in regard to the crop prosp?ct-excepting
always the salient fact that there has been a
startling increase in the consumption of com?
mercial fertilizers. The following is a com?
parative statement or tbe number of tons of
fertilizers transported by the South Carolina
Railroad Company, to all points, during the
first quarter or the past three years :
1870. 1871. 1872.
Tons. Tons. Tons.
January. 7.027 3.61C 7,234
February.10.351 4.809 8,354
March.12,425 5,763 0,925
Total.29,803 14,188 25^513
This table show3 that the quantity of fer?
tilizers sent forward in three months or 1871
was less than one-hair of the quantity sent
forward in the large crop year, 1870; while
the shipments in 1S72 are very nearly equal
to the shipments of 1870. And we are dis?
posed to believe that even this increase does
not indicate the full difference between this
season and last season. At Ike close of the
season of 1870-1871 thousands or tons or
fertilizers lay unsold in the depots through?
out the country. We know of one agent in
the interier of this State who had 3000 tons
in store when the season opened. Th6
dealers, with the costly experience of 1871
before them, have been slow to order fresh
supplies; and it is fair to suppose that the
consumption of fertilizers this Beason in?
cludes the quantities already in store as well
as pretty nearly the whole of the shipments
of 1872. At the same tine it should be re?
membered that the increased production of
fertilizers in Charleston, and the success
achieved by Charleston in obtaining more
than her usual proportion of the shipments
from the North to Southern ports, prevent
us from accepting the shipments of fertili?
zers from Charleston to tbe interior as an
unerring indication of the rates of consump?
tion throughout the South. Ic would re?
quire similar reports of the shipments from
and to other ports, as well as overland, to
make the statement complete.
It is too early to make estimates of the
crop of 1872-73. We shall gather together
and publish whatever information upon the
subject we can obtain, and leave the public
lo draw their own conclusions.
A SIGNIFICANT political straw i? afforded
in the sudden change of rront or tho New
York World towards the Liberal Republican
movement. We reproduce Us article iu
TROIS AS STEEL. A Novel. By Marlon Har?
land, author of Nemesis, As. New York:
G. W. Carleton & Co. 1872. Charleston:
Holmes's Book House.
In style and treatment, in Its faults as well
as good points, this novel ls very much like
its predecessors. We wish, however, that the
author would make the speech of her heroine's
less energetic. It is well enough to "put
?'things strongly," but a young girl who has
.blood, intellect, education and opportunity"
might wisely refrain from declaring that if a
man whom ehe despises had bis deBerts "he
"would be whipped by the hangman, then
"have h!s false tongue slit." Miss Harland
has always had a large circle of readers, and
thoBe who admire "Alone" and the "Hidden
"Path," will be pleased with "True as Steel."

THE SEVENTH YUL : OR THE TIME OF TROUBLE
BEGUN. AS shown in the Great War, the De?
thronement of the Pope, and other Collate?
ral Events. By Rev. John Cummlne, D. D.,
F. R. 8. E., &c. New York: G. W. Carleton
& Co., Publishers. 1872.
We have given leBS than half of the sensa?
tional lille page, which the publishers (for
surely the aulhor could, not have been con?
sulted) have assigned to Dr. Cummiog's re?
markable book on the prophecies. In an age
BO greedy of novelty as ours, a production so
strange and startling does not need the pref?
ace of an advertisement.
Dr. Cumming maintains tbat the prophecies
symbolized by the Seventh Vial (of Rev. 16)
are now in tbe course of fulfilment. He re?
gards the overthrow of the French Empire,
the unification of Italy, the supremacy of Ger?
many, the Intrigues of Russia and the tremen?
dous volcanic and other convulsions which
have disturbed the material world during re?
sent years, as "the footfalls ol the coming
"Lord." To these signs he adds "the opposi?
tions of science falsely so-called," and the
chaotic condition of political affairs among
[he nations. Tbe late wars in Europe inau?
gurated the battle (or wa. ; of Armageddon.
"The Great Earthquake" is the subversion of
the European system. "The Northern Hall"
is the sweeping storm of Russian Invasion,
which IB soon to descend Southward toward
Palestine. The Jews are about to return to
their own land. The European Continent will
be apportioned into three Kingdoms. And
so the devout dreamer dreams on and on.
We do not care to question the sincerity of
the author when he insists that he has no pet
theory to maintain. We ourselves have none.
We can even admire the dexterity with which
ie subsidises contemporaneous events to his
jurpose, yet we are not the less convinced
hat the work ls due to a foregone conclu"
lion. Nothing else could bave evolved from
Ive or six vorses, charged with prophetic
