Maj. N. M. Tannor, Petersburg, Ya.,
UkarSir: In compliance with your request, I have analyzed sample of " Guanahani
Guano," and have made additional examination of an average sample from a lot of 300
ions the result of which, I beg to embrace in the following. The Guano is a brownish
powder, with lumps of combinations of lime wilh Carbonic Phosphoric and Nitric acids.
It, contains a considerable quantity of water (about 2D per cent.), and when dried is a paler
brown powder. Tne Guano is evidently of animal origin, and the minute bones which
veie riiscovered in the same, indicate that it is the result of the decay of bats mice &c
The quantity of organic matter, which is slill present, is about 12 per cent., and this yields
about 2i per cent, of ammonia. A portion of the nitrogen is present, as nitric acid of

ever, is present, as so-called neutual phosphate of lime, which, being slightly soluble in

Why, I do not know. There might
have been light without the sun,
and there might have been a sun
that gave no light ; but God haa
been pleased to put these two things
together sunrise and light. So,
whenever there is a prayer, there
is a blessing. I do not know why.
There might have been prayer with
out a blessing, for there is in the
world of wrath ; and there might
have been a blessing without prayer,
for it often is sent to some who
sought it not. But God has been
pleased to make this a rule for the
government of the moral and spirit
ual universe that there shall be the
answer to prayer. Spurgeon

speech to his countryman at Columbia
recently, and improved the occasion
by giving them some excellent ad
vice, lie told them that they were
responsible for tho thieves who had
plundered the State into bankruptcy,
since they had elected them to office.
Their only safety, he said, was an
immediate and thorough efforts at re
form. To entorco this warning, he
said : " Tho National Republican
party to-day is ready to cut aloof
upon the slightest provocation from
the corruption now existing in the
South, and unle83 you do something,
and that speedily, they will be com
pelled to cut off th? rotten branches."
Mr. Elliott had evidently heard of
the determination to unload.
