COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Morning, February 20,1870.
Too Muon SiTiYEB.-Canada, it is said,
is fairly groaning under ita load of sil vor.
Too muck bard cash is bringing ruin
upon her farmers, upon her laborers.
Silver is at a fearful disconnt. The
shop-keeper who tskes in forty or fifty
dollars a day can not deposit it in hank
without submitting to a ?have of many
per cont. Relief fa prated for, and it
seems is about to come iu the shape of a
fractional currency-a remedy worse
than the disease. California groans
nnder its load of gold, while most of the
Northern States groan under their load
ol depreciated currency. The South
groan for both, neither gold, nor silver,
nor ourrenoy, being in sufficient quanti?
ties to parchase her produce as in the
bette? days o2 tho ropubiic.
Poor Mexico 1 All doubt of her fate
is removed. Tho un fortunato country is
doomed ijd another bloody civil war, and
even the friends of Juarez admit that
the catastrophe cannot be long averted.
Five States are now in open insurrection
-and the ceotral government is powerless.
Very gloomy forebodings of the futuro
fill tho columns of the Vera Crae papers.
l*e next steamer at Savana moy bring
the news pf the downfall of President
Juarez and the reign of anarchy all over
the land. In exchanging Maximilian for
Juarez the Mexicans got back their
republic, but not pence or good govern?

states that trade is very dull there this

no vessel bsd arrived from a foreign port
for tbs forty-eight hours preceding-a

THE MISSING CBOWN JEWEILS OF SI'AIN.
A report comes from Mexico that tho
crown jewels of Spain, which huve been
missing for some time, are in pawn at
the National Monte de Piadad, in the
city of Mexico. These precious articles
are not to be seen by ordinary visitons to
that establishment; but the story is that
they were shown to Mr. Seward uud one
or two members of his party. They iu
clude the jewels that were pawned by
Isabella-not the Isabella of the period,
but the othor-to fit out Columbus on
his voyage to discover America. A por?
tion it not all the jewels that have been
added to the Spanish crown since that j
time ure with them, and the entire lot
has. boon pledged as collateral fur a loan
to somebody. The amount of the lonu ,
and the name of the party who nogo- '
t iated it are not given.
.'SOCIAL EVILS."-A lady writes l<> the j
Herald to say :
"I have visited Europe frequently, and
haye dwelt in London, Paris, Switzer-,
land and Germany; and on my return to j
this oity, about four years since, shall
oever forget how shocked I felt at the
contrast of the style of dress between
the ladies in the above named countries
and hore. Youth and age herc exhibited
to my eyes about the same amount of
nudity, while innate modesty would
have thought the neocssity of covering
certain portions of the form which are i
calculated to excite the pissious but not
the respect of mon.
"In good society abroad 1 never saw
such an abortion of dress as hero, und
many times I felt sad as regarded this
want of delicacy iu costume, aud havo
with many friends talked over and over
again if it were possible we could ohaugo
it. Wo saw no way open, ns private
ladies, except by our condemnation,
whenever opportunity served, and this
unfortunately would make us enemies,
and as by adoption (though English) I
am an American, I should regret this,
though my advice for a better sta to of
things would be given from tho heurt,
moro 'in sorrow than in anger.' Instead
of the womon in this city turniug their
attention to the performance of duties
devolving upon them as wives aud mis?
tresses of their homes, they, ignorant as
they are, leave all such to servants, who
aro still more ignoraut, and perceiving
tho want of knowledgo in the ludies
whom they aro expected to serve, tako
advantage of this, and assume that of
which they know nothing. Hence,
those who biro them becomo in tho
power of tue domestics, und this is ono
of the secrets, too, of 'bad servants.'
The only desire the women seem to
aspire to is to gratify the admiration of
men, regardless of family tics, connec?
tions or positions in life."
"GONE TO THE Doos."-Count Vil
lard, a celebrated French sportsman,
who died reoantly, left a will directing
that he should be buried by tho side of
some of his old hounds, to whom he had
erected a monument, and loft a sum of
60,000 francs, for tho ereotiou of a hand?
some mausoleum, within which uro to bu
disposed tho statues, busts und othor
works of ort at his chateau, together
with ull the poi trait? bf his female
friends. A further sum, sufficient to
product) 2,000 francs a year, is to be set
aside for tho salary of a keeper of the

WABHTSOTCW, P. C., F?bm?r; 16.1870.
Time? are heed ia tb* city, like they,
are in all other paTU of the ?ountry.
The poor are |mfferij?, for the want of
work, and, oonsequemly, for the nodes
sariearcf life yet there never bia been a
gayer or a more extravagant society
aasembled in Washington. There have
never becu moro parties and receptions
than have boon heh! during the present
winter. The wives of heads of depart?
ments and bureaus, icc, dress iu the
most extravagant style. Some have
means, aonie havo none. Th OHO who
have none, of conree, must expect the
perquisites of their oflico to make up all
deficiencies. An administration is re?
sponsible, in the capital, for the morals
of the peoplo, to some extent, but always
for the extravagance in mode of living
and of dress. Example ia derived from
the fountain source; and when tho heads
lavish their means in flue clothes, in
diamonds and jewelry and in splendid
entertainments, what can you expeot
from subordinates but corresponding
extravagance and a constant tendency to
run in debt and live beyond their means?
The administration started ont under a
pledge of reform and retrench meut, but
example of private economy would be a
better guarantee of honesty of purpose
than the lavish profligacy that the capi?
tal baa been plunged in during tho pre?
sent session of Congress. Somebody
must pay for all these magnificent enter?
tainments, and that somebody is most
likely to bethe people; but if tho people
never find it out, then, truly, will "igno?
rance be bliss."
It was agreed, at the meeting of tho
Ways and Means Committee, yesterday,
to report au amendment to tho general
tax bul, providing that the Internal Re?
venue Bureau be made a separate depart?
ment, independent of the Tieasury, and
its chief constituting one of the Cabinet.
There was barely a majority of the com?
mittee in favor of such a change, and,
consequently, it is thought that the
House will hardly accept it.
Tbc Committee on Reconstruction
directed its Chairman, General Butler,
to report to the House a bill, which, if it
passes, tho United States District Couru
will hereafter have the greater portion o!
the pardoning power. The bill provide*
that every citizen disfranchised by thc
third section of tho fourteenth amend
ment, except those who have hold com
missions in the army or navy, or hav<
been membors of Congress, shall bi
restored to all rights of citizenship, bj
applying, by a petition, to such a Cour
i in auy State in which ho hud his hom?

j An effort is being made to have a bil
introduced in Congress to authorize thc
Commissioner of Patents to distribub
premiums for tho best inventions in cer
tain specified classes. The patent func
has increased until it is now ove
$500,000. This fund belongs rightfully
to the inventors of tbe country. It hu
accumulated from fees which they havi
paid into the Pateut Office, aud is ove
and above all the ozponses of that insti
tution. Tho proposition is to give bael
to inventors, a portion of this fund yearl;
in tho shapo of promiums for their in
ventivo genius and industry.
Suppose $100.000 should bo set apar
yearly and distributed iu 6ums of $10,00
each to inventors who should produc
the best invention, with working ma
chines, in ten difl'urent and distino
classes, such as tho reaper, steam engine
telegraph, printing press, ?to., what ai
immense stimulus would bo given t
inventive genius, and how wouderfull
would the industrious pursuits of th
country bo bonefitted. We owe our pre
sent udvunced state iu the mechanic*
arts entirely to tho patent system. Ye
ovcry invoutor fools that if ho ever rc
ulizes anything for his invention after h
receives a patent from tho Government
it must be dono by his own entorpris
and perseverenco iu introducing il
Thora is no positive assurance that b
will ever be compensated for bis tim?
labor und ingenuity, although there i
always a strong hopo. Should the Gc
verument oncourago invention by givin
it some suitable reward, it would nc
ouly bo doing its individual citizen
justice, but would be adding to its ow
wealth, and to its standing with othc
No ouo who is unacquainted with tl:
system of patents, and with inventors t
a class, can well form evon an approx
mato iden of the impetus that would L
given to genius throughout tho who
country, by n judicious distribution <
positivo sums of money for tho mo
meritorious inventions or discovoriei
which may bo made yearly. The pu
thirty years has developed muuy wonde
ful improvements in engiueu of wa
means of locomotion and of communie
tion of dissemiuating useful kuowledg
aud hundreds of othor things whu
havo raised us as a people in the scale i
civilization, und national power ut
wealth. Wo owe all to tho inventor, ar
as there scorns to be a lull iu tho effbr
of genius at present, it is tho duty of tl

of the past thirty years by tho brillia

that there it'a mint of mo*ey in a metre ;
if ho can only have it adopted, and is j
pressing it with his aocuatomed energy.
There are thousands of distilleries and |
breweries in the eonatry. and each will
be required to have a metre. These j
metres cost from 9500 to 81,000 each,
with a very large margin for profit. He
can very easily pocket a little $100,000
if be succeeds in his enterprise.
These little money-making schemes
aro very often induled in by members of
Congress. Memborsare engaged accord?
ing to their calibre in large or amall
transactions. Jake Ela waa engaged
nome time ago in one of thesasraall ones.
He wan on the Printing and Stationery
Committee, and sailed in with a Jew
stationery house in opposition to one of
Cn Mudie faith. He succeeded in de- j
frauding the Catholic house out of about
$30,000 for goods already furnished
under contract, and assisted the Jews as
ho thought to a very lucrative contract
ni the Interior Department. The bids
for this contract wore very ingeniously
made. Artioles which they supposed
would be little used were put down nt
about one-hundreth part of their value,
while those of which large quantities
were needed, wore put down at a large
profit. For instance, quart bottles of red
ink were put down at one-eighth of a
cent, por dozen. A certnin clerk, owing
them no good will, ordered ninety-six
bottles of?red ink. Tho parties made
instant complaint, and When tho clerk
was asked why he ordered so ?nany
quarts of red ink, staled that he did not
like to order less than a cent's worth.
We don't think Jake has made much out
of this contract, for bo goes around
looking very seedy, and never takes a
drink unless he is invited. HOMO.

A WORD TO THE WISE.-The following
i hint may bo of some value to young gen
; Meinen who are being trained to the
j busiucss of dunning and collecting
[money: lu presenting any bill, never
I urge its payment on the ground that the
I creditor needs the money badly, and will
I bo ruined if it is not paid. People have
J very littlo respect for such piteous and
: pluiutivo appeals. Say, on the contrary,
! that the creditor demands the money,
! and will have it if ho has to break yon
j up and sell you ont, under the flag of
? tho sheriff. As a general thing, this
manner of dealing with the subject is
successful. There uro many people who
are accessible to no other motive than
that of fear; and the fear of merciless
and relentless creditor is the most de?
basing that can effect any human mind.
