EDITORS: "Wc arc exalted. < )ur horn has been uplifted. We are among the glorified. We have heen chosen an associate, a member, a brother, in the greaf society,--u The. Mum Brotherhood." The -great seal of the society, representing a beauti? ful woman, with a finger on her Hps, and with the motto encircling her, Mum! vicimus, rivamus,'" and with , tho signature, in his own hand, of the venerable Patriarch, now lies be? fore us. We feel that our record is made in life; and, as an honorable member of the "Mum Brotherhood," we shall be mum no longer. We shall speak out in tho language of ?xnlta tiou, for verily our horn hath been exalted. Ncvr:r was pleasurable sur? prise so complete. Never did we sup? pose that our friends in Columbia were so warru-hearted and so active in ouriiiterests. As everybody knows, thc "Mum Brotherhood" receives no letters of application for membership. There are no black-ballings and no applicants. All such are puk-nuder thc table. Tho society, under the direction ot' thc Eleven-all Sanians choose their own members from out the eommunity at large. They watch aud weigh an;1, -duly estimate the in? dividual. He must bo genial, amiable, wiso, witty, virtuous, and especially, taciturn. Mum's the law. No mituvais ?"jr! is idmitted; no mere spouter or speechi?er; no dull prosy debater; no vain disputer, with his-.'.mpty babble; no roaring politician, blatant as the bull of Bashan. Wc have reason to be proud of tiie honor generously be? stowed upon us, which is environed and guarded by such severe limita? tions, and, within an hour after being advised that we were chosen as one of the vi ?unger brotherhood, designat? ed for taking i?ie first degree of E. T. B., or die labyrinth, that veiy night, we were surprised by the following epistle : DEAH Snr. Muni's the word. We aro aware of your appointment, and take leave, in our admiration of your personal and public service, to send you the first essential for your en? trance to the sacred college of ' he "Mum Brotherhood." This is needed for sprinkling during your novitiate. It is the very life-blood of "Mnmm the Great," whose virtues were before tin- flood, and have long survived it. To our venerable father Noah Ave owe it that "Mumm" still survives for the benefit of humanity. [Biprned. j MUMMUtt ? CO. With this mysterious letter came a still more mysterious vessel. It was of a smooth glass, of a pale green complexi?n-a vessel in shape not unlike those which were found, made of a delicate porous earth, in the sub? terraneous passages of Caiu Mum mins, who first introduced the order among thc Roman people. It had a decided air of the antique. There was but a single aperture to the ves? sel, at one and the narrow extre? mity, where it tapered to a point. This was covered with a silver coating, beneatli which stout wires of iron might be seen, in four parallel ridges, the whole indicating a degree of sub tlety in tho contents, -which, required the utmost ?aro, to prevent escape* If we wejjo mystified by the antique aspect of this vessel, bow much, more was thc mystery increased by the in? scription stamped upon it, in letter? of a language almost everywhere un? known. Wo puzzled ourselves over the"inscription,, which wa? only fully explained for us by the "Eleven San? ton?," in consistory of the whole brotherhood. The strange inscription ran thus: G. H. Mumm & Co. Reims i en champagne. Verzonay Mousseux. Qualit?-Sup?rieure. That was all, but how full of mys? terious signification! The explanation was given ton?; that night as follows: ' 'Glory to tho Highest Mumm and his co-mates, whose throne is now at Reims in Champagne. He is a green horn who says 'nay' to his Mous? seux, when it is of a quality so supe? rior." iJl tho secrets of the brother? hood, we can say nothing. It is Uk? the fraternities of Masons, Odd Fel? lows and Sous of Malta, a secret so? ciety, involving pledges and practices j of virtue such as keep the world in j equilibrium, aud beautify the several ? faces aud phases of society. It dates back, as we have said, to the days of Noah, who was the first to discover, to secure and perpetuate the blood of "Mumm" for the blessings of future ages. It warmed the heart of Job in the desert of Idume?, and was spared in his cellar, when he was Sherman iz?d by the Devil. Thc institution was carried by the Israelites into Egypt, and was honored and main? tained through the dynasty of the shepherd kings. David was inspired with lyrical wisdom under its influ? ence, and Solomon imbibed the phi? losophy of his love songs from its genial inspiration. From the Egyp? tian, it passed to thc Etrurian; through the Etrurian to the Greek; through the Jews, at the taking of Jerusalem by Titus, it was rescued by the Santons, who, receiving the Roman Claudius to the brotherhood, making him a proselyte, conferred ! lipon him the additional name of ! Mum, which was latinized into Mumrnius. Through the Roman, it ! was transmitted to tho Gaul, and the j original name now appears in the j Grand Master, who still pours forth his blood, from the country of Cham ' pagne, in modern Galba, which is i vulgarly known as France. Well may j the Mum mites of Columbia be j proud of this antique history. Long I may we live to drink the blood of ' Mumm, and to recognize the beau ? tiful and life-giving wisdom in the i motto of the order, "Mum! vir imus, viva.nus!'''' wich, being literally inter? preted, means, "Through Mumm | we live while we live-may the blood | of Mumm still vivify the blood in the veins of his disciples!" Verily, | we eau testify that it is generous blood, and we are grateful to those I admirable agencies in Columbia, of which there are several, who have had the good taste and wisdom to assist in the diffusion of the wine os ' Mumm through the brotherhood of j this place. iTV.H'.

Potroleum a-id Mining Board. CYBUSJ.LAvYKENCl. WM.?. 1IALSTED Sept 4 Imo To the Citizens of South Carolina. The termination of a sanguinary contest, ?which for the past four years has presented an impassable barrier to all social or com? mercial intercourse between the two great sections of our country, having at losgth happily cleared away all obstacles to a re? te oval of those re?aiiuns which formerly bound ns together in s fraternal nnion, I take the earliest opportunity afforded me by this auspici?os event, to greet my South? ern friends, and io solicit from them a re? newal of that oxtensivc business connection which for a quarter of a century has been uninterrupted, savo by th? great public calamity to which I have adverted. It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a business re-nnion, I should repeat thc warning no often given to my friends-to beware of all thos? spurious and deleteri* ous compounds which, under the specious and false titles of Imported Wines, Bran? dies, Holland Gin, Liquors, ?fcc., have been equally destructive to the he?Uh of our citizens as prejudicial to the interests of tho legitimate importer. Many years of my past life hav? been expended is an open and candid aiicmpi to expose these wholesale frauds; no time nor expense has bern spared to accomplish this salutary pnq>osc, and to place before my friends and the public generally, at thc j lowest possible market price, and in such i quantities as might snit their convenience, I a truly genuin? imported article. Twenty-five year?' business transactions ' with tho largest and most respectable ex- i porting houses in France and Great Britain j have afforded me unsurpassed facilities for ? suppling our home market with Wines, j Liquors and Liquores of the best and most approved brands in.Europe, in addition to j my own distillery in Holland for the manu- : facture of thc "Schiedam Schnapps." Th? latter, so long tested and approved j by the medical faculties of the United States, West Indies and South America as j an invaluable Therapeutic, a wholesome, pleasant and perfectly safe beverage in all climates and during all seasons, quickly j excited the cupidity of the home mannfac- . turers and venders of a spurious article ander tho same name. j I trust that I have, after much toil and j expenso, surrounded all my importations ' with safeguards and directions, which, with ordinary circumspection, will insxire their delivery, aa I receive them from Europe, to all my customers. I would, however, recommend, in all cases where it is possible, that orders be sent direct to my Depot, 22 Beaver street, New York, or that pnrchac be made of my accredited agents. In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies, Ac, in wood, I have a consider? able supply of old tried foreign Wines, em? bracing vintages of many past years, bot? tled up before the commencement of the war, which I can especially recommend to all connoisseurs cf these rare luxuries. In conclusion, I would specially call the attention of my Southern customers to the advantage to be derived by transmitting their orders without loss of time, or calling personally at the Depot, in order to insure the fulfillment of their favors from the pre- j .;ent large and well sele?t?d assortment. j UDOLPHO WOLFE, Pet S Imo 22 Beaver st., New Yofk. 1 GOOD NEWE Of THE Tl IMMENSE ATT RA Wholesale S NO. *M ?VJEE1 , K?TA15LISIIK] IS now re-opened, after a suspension of fon The proprietor now offers for sale AT WHOLESALE ONLY, at thc lowest noss CONSIGNMENTS semi-weekly from the largi The proprietor takes pleasure in calling t chants of.thc States of Georgia, Tennessee stock of BOOTS, SHOES, HATS, TRUNKS, OU DEUS NEATLY AND P ROMP LY .
