. Bwatae*? CUn|?i.
\ ' .v. i ; Vork Tribuna notices a
,4 change, and wo think a change fox
* tho better, in the mode of doing
J . business. Thirty or forty years ago,
??fr, -Hue Tribune remarks, most com?
me di ties were sold on credit. Nine
. tenths of the ,dry goods which left
lae Northern markets, were sold "on
J time"-so they Baid, though tho time
often glided into eternity.
- r . , .lu' 1837, as many of us well, remem?
ber, a -"very largo proportion of the
u importers and jobbers of the country
failed, simply because their custom
?i? diu nul, and generally could not,
^ \,' v^pay them. In those good old hal?
cyon days, the country merchant
. j V : paid a part of his indebtedness every
year; bat he bought at the same
' time, on credit, more than he paid
' . -up, so that his debt was steadily ac?
cumulating, until "a panie" occurred,
''. when it was wiped out, and the cre?
ditor with it. The jobbers were thus
ruined, and with them many of the
. ' ' importera; but new men stepped in
to fill their places, and all went on as
? >\ before-till the next panic.
But the late war has wrought a won?
derful change on this old fashioned
. r^. mode ox doing business. Very few
,i merohants now ask for credit from
-, *, . wholesale dealers, and very few are
' ', in .debt; while in the old times, they
, ^ere never out of it.
The favorable change extends, too,
to. the planter, to the meohauic and
to the laborer, in every department.
. Formerly, the planter, just because
he had the credit, would run up a
bill with his favorite merohant, that
; swamped up the whole proceeds of
his crop; and, in fact, we have known
some of them to draw upon a factor,
to make up deficiencies-said draft
being based upon next year's crop.
Then, a bag of^coffee, a barrel of
sugar, a cask of bacon, took rank in
the long list of supplies the planter
bought with his first load of cotton,
i ' Now, we soe, as wo did the other day,
a former large planter, buy a piece
i of bacon and put it in his buggy.
No yearly running accounts are now
permitted, and the result is, that
when tho produce is brought to mar?
ket, the planter pockets tho whole
proceeds in gold or greenbacks, and
hals the whole market to choose from,
1 and is not tied down to his favorite
merchant, or bo compelled to pay ten
per oent. more for his goods for the
sake of a year's credit. Wo believe
;this change in the mode of doing
business, is one of the best results ol
1 1 the war, because it benefits every?
body; and wo think will be perma?
nent, for neither merchant or buyei
will be in a hurry to return to thc
defunct credit system.
The Tribune, in the article to whicl
we refer, writes the following curiom
but very truthful paragraph:
"The decrease of credits is paral
leled by the expansion of advertising
Firms that fornerly lost $50,tlOJ pei
annum by bad debts, now pay tha
- amounnt instead for advertising, anc
do a far larger as well as safer busi
ness than of old; selling far mort
. goods at smaller profits, and neve:
losing sleep through fear that thei
will be driven into bankruptcy by th"
failure of their customers. Five pe
cent profit on a cash business is fa
better than fifteen per cent on ?
credit business, beside enabling tb
retailer to sell twenty per cent, lowe
than he formerly did. He who ha
aught to sell ohcap that is real!;
worth buying, can always sell it b;
efficient advertising. And every da;
increases the proportion of those wh
prefer to keep their wares until, b;
advertising, they can find customer
willing to pay cash down for thom."
There is no doubt but that judi
cious advertising, under the preson
cash system of buying and selling, i
one of the most powerful agencies i
accumulating mercantile fortunes
. while, at the same time, it is a publi
benefit. It informs the custome
where he con got the best and cheap
est goode, ?nd it is iauw t?iiiio??l ft
invariable rule, that tho merchant wh
occupies the greatest space in th
columns of the newspaper, hos th
largest number of thu best ouatons
era. This is simply from tho fa<
I that they go into the advertiser'
store to buy, not to "look round.
"A word to the wise," &o.
Tho Darlington Southerner, of tli
18th, contains a four column ad ve
tisement from tho ?heriff of that Di
trict, of property levied on for taxe
BOND OF ^ATWNAWY.--It is -well
known, as aa historical foot, that
trade and manufactures cannot flou?
rish amid the scenes of ?warfare.
Therefore, an exchange argaea; arid
Tory justly, that fraternal relations
among the people ia the only true
bond of nationality.
Tho people"as a.mass dislike con?
tests for supremacy. They wisely
believe that individual prosperity,
with a due regard for tho rights of
others, is national progress. Success
in the various departments of busi?
ness is the best cure for thc ills which
now affect tho body politic. If once
again the minds of the people can be
directed to tho material interests of
the country, and realize the fact that
one section cannot,prosper v.-Lils i thc
other is impoverished, wo will soon
have unity and harmony among the
whole American people.
THE PBOORAMME IN NEW YORK.
The radicals of New York city had a
grand ratification meeting on "Wednes?
day night. Among other resolutions
adopted were the following:
"Resolved, That we congratulate
our whole country, and tho friends
of human liberty everywhere, on the
prospect of an early, righteous, and
beneficent reconstruction of those
States of our Union so lately con?
vulsed by rebellion and devastated by
war; and we tender to the people of
those States our beart-felt congratu?
lations on their deliverance trom the
scourge and shame of human bond?
age.
"Resolved, That we thank the Con?
gress of the United States for the
equity, firmness, and patriotic fore?
sight with which it has so steadfastly
insisted that such reconstruction
should be so effected as to give, the
loyal States and people ampio secu?
rity against a revival of slavery, in
fact or in substance, as well as against
a new outbreak of causeless and ruin?
ous civil strife.
"Resolved, That we ardently desire
and will labor to secure the restora?
tion to self-government and repre?
sentation in Congress of tho ?tates
lately in arms against tho Union, at
the earliest day consistent with the
sure maintenance of peace, order and
universal freedom."
Theso resolutions arc evidently
based upon the idea that the North?
ern people are not satisfied with tho
3low progress made in restoring the
Southern States to the Union. The
radicals understand that the voters
desire to see a completo Union; and
they make pledges to meet the emer?
gency. Congress, too, will take the
same view, and will pass such laws as
will bring us into the Union before
?.he presidential election.

THE LATE ELECTIONS.-The New
?ork Times says:
The Southern papers have really
it last got over their doleful dumps,
ind got into u state of something like
exhilaration, in view of the lato De
nocratic successes. We hate to dash
;heir joy in the least; but it may be
is well for them to bowaro of count
ng too much on tho lato elections.
They by no means provo that the
Democracy aro going to sweep the
jountry next year, or anything of the
rind. They by no means provo that
;he Republican party has collapsed,
>r anything of tho sort. They may
provo that the peoplo of tho North
ire not prepared to endorso tho rovo
utionary schemes of the moro violent
partizans in tho last Congress; but
bey do not prove that tho South
viii ovor bo reconstructed according
x> the plans of the Copperhead De
nocracy. If our Southern* contem?
poraries cannot learn this by studying
;he election returns, they will bo
aught it by others yot to come.

U?dor this caption, the Ne- York
T?mas, of the 10th, baa the following
remarkable article, which argues that
tho States themselves should regu?
late the question of suffrage; and,
moreover, shows the inconsistency of
tho Democratic party on the ques?
tion:
Wade Hampton adheres to the
opinion he expressed some time since,
that negroes in the Southern States
should be recognized as citizens, and
admitted to the suffrage. Ho be?
lieves that such a course would con?
tributo largely to tho peace and pros?
perity of the whole community. He
thinks, however, that this should be
done by the State and not by Con?
gress, and that suffrage for both
whites and blacks should be made to
depend upon character and intelli?
gence.
Wo do not doubt that the thinking
men of the South generally concur
in this opinion. There is much less
of mere prejudice against the negro
in tho South than among certain
classes in tho North. Even before
the abolition of slavery, negroes
were sure of bettor personal treat?
ment from Southern people than from
Northern. The South very naturally
objects to universal negro suffrage,
because they know very well that the
great body of the negroes arc utterly
unqualified for it-that they know
nothing whatever of tho questions
which their votes may determine, and
that they will inevitably become tools
in the hands of demagogues. But
there can be very little doubt that if
Mr. Lincoln har! lived, or if tho
policy of reconstruction which he
devised and favored had been carried
out, negroes would have been allowed
to vote in nearly if not quite all the
Southern States, just as fast as they
might have become qualified 60 to do.
He himself recommended it, as did
also Mr. Johnson when he succeeded
to tho office; and the general senti?
ment of the intelligent political
leaders of the South was decidedly in
favor of it Tho shallow pretence
that this is tho "white man's govern?
ment," and that none but white mer
should ever have any share in making
tho laws and choosing the nilen
which all aro required to obey, diec
with slavery among all sensible anc
reflecting men, South as well a?
North ; and it has been reserved foi
the Democratic Bourbons of tho pre
sent day to revive it and make it th<
basis of their political creed.
It ought to be remembered, more
over, that the adoption of universa
negro suffrage, both in tho Distric
of Columbia and throughout th<
South, is due directly to the Demo
eratic representatives in the last Con
gress. A large majority of the Re
publican party decided in cancu
Against it; and when it was propose?.
LU Congress to establish intelligenci
is a qualification for negro suftVag
in the District of Columbia, the De
tnocrnts voted with the extreme radi
:als against it, and thus secured it
lefeat.
Universal negro suffrage, with :
lisfrauchisement of the great . bod;
jf the whites, forced upon the South
?rn States by military power, am
'ending in nearly all those States t
;he absolute supremacy of tho ne
?roes in tho Government, must o
lecessity bo odious and iutolerabl
;o the white inhabitants. Even i
'orced to consent to it, such a ste]
nust implant in their minds the mos
sitter resentment toward those b
?idiom tho blow has been inflicted
[ts direct tendency, moreover, is t
irray the blacks and whites again ?
?ach other-to make each feel thu
?ho other is his enemy, and thus t
?ow tho seeds of future collision
iud hatreds between tho two races
[f the work had been done by th
leople of those States thenisolve:
he result would havo been difieren
That it must have been done soonc
>r later is certain. Tho negroes i
ill tho Southern States are so nume:
)us, the capital and industry of tl
South aro so dependent upon then
hat their admission to tho suffrnp
vould very soon become absolute]
ndispensablo to tho safety of Soutl
?rn society; and the Southern whit?
vould havo consulted their own ii
;erests quite as much as those of tl
flacks, by bringing them in ns rnpi?
y as possiblo to tho exercise of polit
;al power.
Tho violent and arbitrary munni
n which Congress has seen fit to sc
le this question, is unquestionab
mo very powerful element in tho r
:eut reverses which tho Republics
>arty has sustained in the Northei
states. But wo aro glad to see th
?Vado Hampton and other Southe]
nen of positiou and influence, ha1
tot changed .(heir views on this su
ect. If tho Southern States can 1
ed to take wise and generous actic
>n this matter, they will contribu
rery largely to the harmony of sem
uent between the two sections whit
s so important to the welfare

FROM LIBERIA. -Tho Now York
Pout says:
Lieut. L. L. Lloyd, pf the Govern?
ment of Liberia, who has just arrived
in this oi>y, iu'ovzuB Un timi there nas
been muon excitement and distress in
Liberia, owing to the stopping of
trade in what is known as "country
cloth." This is a cotton blanket
which is almost universally worn by
the natives.
The slaves in the interior of Libe?
ria, formerly held in subjection by
the native kings or chiefs, have re?
belled and obtained their freedom.
These kings were partly independent
of the Government, and their adhe?
rents outnumbered the civilized part
of the community by whom the
Government of Liberia was estab?
lished.
It is reported that there is a great
want of employment by tho people of
Liberia. Many persons aro sent
there, but no provision is made to
provide them with labor or capital
to carry on business. Thero aro no
public works and no enterprises to
give them employment.
COTTON.-Wc have been permitted
to make the following extract from a
lotter received by ono of our mercan?
tile firms, dated Milledgoville, Ga.,
October 10th: "The low price of cot?
ton, though ruinous to UB, will be
advantageous in certain results sure
to follow. Tho demand for negro
labor will not be so great ; wo will
have to hire for part of the crop, and
let cotton bo the surplus. I shall pay
special attention to raising stock,
plenty of hogs, corn, rice, small
grain, mako tho plantation self-sus?
taining, VLV.'I then what I can in cot?
ton. Then a cotton crop is extra,
and what it brings wo can keep in
our pockets. There will be a vast
chango in the planting system; heavy
manuring to make one acre bring its
bale, land lying out in pasture, whore
stock can bo raised and fed, plenty of
hogs, colts, cattle, sheep, &o."

Bisuor LYNCH.-Tho Right Be v.
Bishop Lynch, who had been in
Europe for some months, returned to
this city on Friday evening last, and
was warmly welcomed by such of his
friends as had the pleasure c" meet?
ing him. Ho is looking remu/kably
well, and is doubtless prepnred to
continue with energy the many labors
which the necessities of his important
diocese compel him to assume. Bi?
shop Lynch celebrated Pontifical
High Mass at the Cathedral Chapel
yesterday morning, and preached an
eloquent sermon, in tho courso of
which he described the ceremonies
which took place at Bomo on the
occasion of tho commemoration of
tho mnrtyrdom of St. Peter.

FIUE-PKOOFS FOR TUE LADIES.
An interesting item for tho benefit of
wearers of crinoline; tho process of
rendering tho materials of ladies'
muslin dresses uninflammable is easily
understood. Either of three sub?
stances-phosphate of ammonia,
tungstato of soda, and sulphate of
ammonia-can bo mixed in tho starch
and, at tho cost of two cents a dress,
deaths from burned garments can bo
rendered impossible.
Articles of apparel subjected to
those agents can, if they burn at all,
only smoulder; and in no case can
they blaze up in tho sudden and ter?
rible manner in which so many fatal
accidents have occurred.
INVALUABLE REMEDY.-The Lon?
don Lancet, regarded as the highest
medical authority in the world, gives
the following as an infallible cure for
small pox and scarlot fever: Sul?
phate zinc, one grain; fox-glove
(digitalis,)one grain ; half a tea-spoon?
ful of sugar; mix with two tea-spoons?
ful of water. Take a tea-spoonlul
every hour. Either disenso will dis?
appear in twelvo hours. For a child,
smaller doses, according to age. It
Btates that if countries will compel
their doctors to uso this, there would
bo no need of pest-houses.
THE CITADEL.-We learn that the
houses on tho East sido of Kiug
street, between Calhoun street and
the Citadel, aro to be razed-all but

of Sherman's men, had found its way
to the Dead Letter Office. This

of tliis picture is as follows: It wai

tion of two children (since deceased
of Mr. George Kaigler. On Sher

From a poem on "The Seasons," ,
we extract the following on autumn
and the approaching winter ;
The autumn leaf is frail,
The moon at eve is pale,
Ana woman's love is pare as the
moon's silver ray;
Bat the silver moon will fail,
The leaf flies on the gale,
And love, like ! the autumn, soon
passeth away.
The frozen stream is still,
The wintry air is ohill,
And death is yet colder attd stiller
^than they;
Bat life's expiring thrill
Believeth every Ul,
And death, liko the winter, soon
