that the policy now determined upon and

ference by the President. A permanent
peace can now be obtained through ener

Tuc Insurrection Contradictory
Havana, Dec. 22. Intelligence is re
ceived here that Col. Arquiro, Becan Count,
and twelve other insurgents arrived at
Neavata yesterday as prisoners. Also
that a number of wounded Spanish offi
cers and soldiers had arrived at that town
for medical treatment. All the journal
are unusually silent on afftirsin the insur
rectionary district. There are many rum
ors of engagements between lbs troops of
the insurrectionists. One report states
that Col. Benegaaai had been defeated in an
engagement uear Avalgin, but the Diarco
denies the correctness of this report and
asserts on the contrary that the govern
ment troops in that region have gained
successes. Nearly all the soldiers who
lately arrived from Spain have been sent to
the seat of war. The report that the in
habitants of several towns on the Havana
Western Railroad had joined the revolu
tionists and that bands of insurgents had
formed are not confirmed.

THE PUBLIC DEBT.
What DM Our Orcut Civil WarCot?
It appears from the report of tho Sec
retary of the Treasury that tho adjusted
debt at the close of tho war, say April 1,
18fV, woo COW.rtQV.ir77 T! Mto.
.UUC I -- VvlWV,iltUfU I ff 9 AUU V4 W
bandment of the army, the settlement of
back pay, and other matters increased
the debt, so that at the 1st of September,
18G5, it stood at $2,857,GS9,751. These
are the highest figures ever reached.
From tho books ol the war and navy1 de
partments it appears that, since the close
of tha war, $630,431,128 have been ex
pended in paying debts "which were
actually due at the close of the war, and
for bounties which, like the pay of tha
army, were a part of the expenses of the
war." .this, added to the ad 1 us ted debt
of April, I8G5, gives- the true and final
maximum of the war debt as $2,097,
380,203. The actual reduction, there
fore, between now and then is S470.25C-
The National debt, then, is over
$2,500,000,000. Tho cost of the war
was twice this amount The contribu
tion of individuals, of municipalities, and
of States, must be added to those of the
Federal government. And as a whole
nation we must add tho destruction of
public and private property at tha South,
the seizing, and in some cases the de
struction of private property at the
North, and the losses of the labor of
those engaged in the war.
Let us examine tbe cost of tho losses
of labor. Two millions of men ander
annsTequire the labor of as many more
to, teed, clothe and equip tbem. Theso
four millions were- all of the youngest
and most vigorous men in the nation, and
made up one-half of the whole of tha pro
ducing classes. Tho average valuo of
the nation of thirty millions, or rather of
its seven or eight millions of producers,
cannot bo estimated at less than threo
hundred dollars per annum i for 'each per
son. Applied to tho four millions of tho
vigorous class.at war, five hundred dol
lars per annum would not ba far out of
tho way equal to two thousand millions
per year, or for the war, a loss of tha in
dustry of the nation at least equal to the
actual money paid out for its cost of live
thousand millions. Making an aggregate
amount of ten thousand millions.
But this is not all. Of tho two mil
lions of combatant, at least one-fourth
have been killed 01- disabled by diseases.
Valuing these at five hundred dollars
capitalized, they were worth to the na
tion ten thousand dollars each, or equal
to another five thousand millions. Direct
ly and indirectly, then, tho war has-actually
cost the nation twenty thousand
millions of dollars.

Wear corsets habitually, and lace them
pretty tight, too."
The following comes from Boston :
"I obseive an article in the Sun on
the wearing of corsets by men. My den
tist told me recently that many young
men in this city are accustomed to wear
corsets to preserve their waists from be
coming too large, 'Whenever I have oc
casion to administer gas to ladies,' he
said, '1 request them to Iooson their
clothing in order to breathe easily. Oc
casionally when young men come to have
teeth drawn, and wish to take gas", I find
that they must imitate the ladies in' the
matter of loosening stay-strings. As
often as once in two weeks I have such a
case on hand."
"P.'B. C. writes from Washington :
"I observe in the Sun, that you ask if
corsets are worn by men. In this. city it
.is not at all uncommon for the fashionablo
young fellows about town to have staid
ways. A tailor in the avenue informs me
ha has often found regular French corsets
worn by hi3 customers under their waist
coats, and they made no" concealment of
the fact I have heard physicians recom
mend the custom for men of consumptive
tendency. Tbey say it throws the
shoulders back, expands the chest, and
often prolongs life. On tho Continent it
is quito the mode. Frenchmen, English
men and Russians of distinction make
corsets as much a part of their dress as
shirts. I remember seeing several Lond
oners at Hamburg, Baden-Baden and
Biarritz, who took special pains with
their stays, and had several different
pairs, using silk in summer, and fine
woolen in winter. Henri Rochefort, the
famous journalist, is said to be a wearer
of corsets, and his graceful figure is par
tially asenbed to their use. lou may
recall an article in tho Figaro, pub
lished about a year ago, in which corsets
were earnestly recommended. The writer
said they "were Ires utiles a la bonne

there is high authority for the uso of cor

The efforts of foreign countries
have for years been concentrated
upon entering into a successful com

New York Daily Bulletin in allud

enterprise. In every part of the

the peculiar situation of the soil and

themselves from dependence upon
American cotton is an object to
which English manufacturers. attach
a high degree of importance. Upon
the success of these efforts they re
gard the question of the monopoly
of the cotton supply as dependent,
and to prevent the "restoration of-
the former suprcmac' of the United

the "growth of these products. In
the cotton province of San Paulo,
Brazil, the product has increased
from 7,027 arobas in 1864-5 to
690,000 arobas in 18G7-8, For the
year 1868-9 a yield of no less than
900,000 arobas is anticipated. The
British consular agents in the
United States of Colombia, report
that notwithstanding the admirable
capabilities of soil and climate, no
cotton is grown in the interior, ow
ing to the indolence of the natives,
and also owing to the unsettled po

from the consular district of Mada

The cotton tree is indigenous and
perennial in this region, jmd offers
almost boundless returns. When
the crop is picked, the tree is cut
down and sprouts up again for next
season. The tree bears cotton for
twenty yeara. With a settled form
of government afforing security to
labor and capital, it is estimated that
immense returns could be procured
from this region.
