OBËISMCE TO TI1E PUBLIC.
TRI- WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET.
Time was when this old and well-known
journal catered daily for the edification
and entertainment of ita hosts of readers
and patrons. But, times change and
things change with them. The advent of
War, followed, alas! by so many sad and
startling changes in the condition and
pursuits of the Southern people, rendered
it necessary to drop the daily publication
and assume instead a simple weekly issue.
The War terminating, and the dawn of a
more quiet and prospérons future appear
ing, afford now encouraging earnest of a
gradual though sure return to the arts and
pursuits of peace, on the part of our people.
Embracing the occasion, therefore, to
fall in and keep pace with the steady pro
gress towardB a brighter condition in the
affairs of our common country, the under
signed have formed a mutual association
for the purpose of carrying on the news
paper, job printing and bindery business
of the Gazette and Comet <ßee.
Dating from to-day, the Gazette and
Comet emerges from a weekly to a tri
weekly journal. To meet tho enlarged
expenses consequent upon this alteration,
we confidently rely upon a generous in
This wo fhall strive
! crease of patronage
I to merit by the labor and attention which
j we intend devoting to the several depart
i ments of business we have undertaken
! mutually to conduct, comprising as above
! stated, the newspaper and job offices and
I bindery.
J ;
As soon as practicable, the Gazette mid
I r
Comet will be issued daily.

SPECIAL NOTICE
—to—
BUSINESS MEN AND FAMILIES.
We intend that a copy of the present
number of our paper shall be left at all,
or nearly all, the family residences and
principal places of business in our city.
We shall do this with a view of early en
listing the attention of our fellow-citizens
to the claims of our journal upon them for
a more liberal and extended patronage
hereafter.
AVe shall be thankful to every one feel
ing inclined to subscribe or advertise, to
favor us with their or^evs as soon as pos
sible. Subscriptions will be taken at the
rate of one dollar each per month, al
ways payable in advance, but no subscrip
tion received for a less period than three
months.
Advertisers will find it to their advan
tage to give us a call, in every instance
where they desire to contract for a certain
quantity of advertising and for a specified
time.
S peech M aking .—The New York
Tribune, in an article on Gen. Grant's
short speeches, make? the following
observation on speech-making in
Congress :
The main evil in Congress and
elsewhere is speech-making for the
sake of making a speech, not in
tended to change votes or to alter the
current of sentiment, a thing rarely
occurring in legislative bodies, but to
be printed in the newspapers and
sent in the shape of a pamphlet to a
constituency not one in five of whom
will ever read it. True debate is
sharp, short and colloquial, and the
business of Congress is to pass laws
with jnst so much of debate as may
be needed for their full comprehen
sion by the members and the public.

end of the blockade.
a proclamation
By the President of the Unite«! Stuten«
whereas , By the proclamations
of the President of the 15th and 27th
of April, 1861, a blockade of certain
ports of the United States was set on
toot; but, whereas, the reasons for
that measure have ceased to exist ;
now, therefore, be it known that i,
Andrew Johnson, President ot the
United States, do hereby declare
and proclaim the blockade aforesaid
to be rescinded as to all the ports
aforesaid, including that of Galves
ton and other ports west of the Mis
sissippi river, which ports will be
open to foreign commerce on the 1st
of July, on the terms and conditions
set forth in my proclamation ot the
22d of May last. It is to be under
stood, however, that the blockade
thus rescinded was au international
measure, for the purpose of protect
ing the sovereign rights of the Uni
ted States. The greater or less sub
version of the civil authority in the
region to which it applied, and the
impracticability of at once restoring
that in due efficiency, may, for a sea-i
sou, make it advisable to employ tliei
army and navy of the United States
toward carrying the laws into eflect
wherever such employment may ba
necessary.
In testimony whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
seal of the United States to be
affixed. Done at the City of
Washington, this twenty-third day
of June, in the year of our Lord»
1S65, and of the Independence of
the United States of America the
eighty-ninth.

, T hb M aid of S aragossa and thb
W orth of F ame .—The 29th of May
was kept in Spain as the anniversary
of the death of this famous heroine of
of whom so many poets have sung
somewhat in the dark, and whose fea
tures, "constructed out of the consci
ousness" of enthusiastic artists» have
adorned so many albums and books of
beauty. In commenting upon her
great services to her country, one of
the Madrid journals gives us a curious
illustration of the unreliability of his
tor y
The maid of Saragossa, we are in
formed has been described by Spanish
writers of credit and painted by Span
ish painters as a damsel of the lower
elates, wearing the picturesque saya
carta and brilliant petticoat ot that or
der of Spanish women ; it has been
asserted that she died in 1832, and
that she died insane at a hospital in
Saragossa.
Su far are all these assertions from
the truth, that the heroine belonged
to the upper-middle classes ; dressed aa
ladies of condition commonly dress all
over the civilized world ; never went
mad, and died, not in 1832 in the
hospital at Saragossa bnt in her own
house at Ceuta, in the year 1857,
and in the complete possesion all her
faculties.
What, indeed, is the worth of fame
if such extraordinary blunders can pass
currant with her own countrymen and
contemporaries about the most popu
lar heroine whom the age has produ
ced, among a people, tfotoriously gal
lant, chivalric and enthusiastic?
At this rate, we may expect to find,
General Sherman described in Massa
chusetts, before the end of the century
as an Englishman of small stature,
with but one eye, and Geneal Butler,
remembered as a stout negro, the Tous
saint of Louisiana, who ended his ca
reer by dying gloriously in tha trench
es of Fort Fisher.
We are sorry to be obliged to add,
in reference to t ho "Maid of Saragossa"
that this descriptive phrase, by which
she is commonly known, is just as in
accurate as the particulars of her ap
pearance and history above recited.—
The proper name of the city for which
she so heroically fought is not Sara
gossa, but Zaragoza, and she was so
tar from being a minion of the maiden
moon, that she was married no less
than three times ! It is bad enough to
know that the "Maid of Athens" ex
pired as "Mrs. Black;" buta triply
wedded "Maid of Saragossa" is still
worse.
The heroine began her matrimonial
campaigns with a captain of artillery ;
continued them with a captain of in
f tntry, and finally died in the foster
ing arms of her third spouse, a sur
geon in the army.
These are the facts ; but what is
the use of reciting themj? A well es
tablished popular falsehood is harder
to overthrow than a dynasty ; and
popular tradition will doubtless insist
upon applying to the Spanish heroin®
the epitaph which Margaret of Flan
ders, wrote lor herself. Being caught
by a storm in the Bay of Biscay, and
in danger of drowning on her way to
join the third prince to whom she bad
been affianced, both of her previous
nuptials having been annulled ere they
were consummated, that indomitable
young lady had the spirit to entertain
herself with composing the following
couplet :
"Ci-glt Marguerite, genie demoiselle.
Qui lut troi» fois marié:—et mourut pucelie."
It is satisfactory to know that one
accurate portrait of this much mis«
understood lady exists. It is not in
Spain, however, but in England, hav
ing been painted at Gibraltar in 1809,
at the request of an English general,
and presented to George III.
The Worm .—The rain of Friday
night aud yesterday morning caused
the worms, whose advent acroia the
river we yesterday announced, to dis
appear instanter, and we trust that
they may not again show themselves.
The plantation hands say that the rain
washed this same worm out of aight
for the season two years ago. There
are eggs remaining yet upon the cot
ton leaf however. If the rainy season
continues for a little whilewe may
have seen the last of these possible des
troyers. We regret to say that one
worm, of the same species a* those
which did so much damage last year,
was discovered yesterday not far from
