essful horticulturists, has a number of tea plants now nearly, or quite two years old, which he represents as being very promising indeed. From his observation he believes that the three o'clock sun, in this latitude, is too hot for it, as it is partial to a cool, moist atmosphere. Hence it is inferred that a Northeastern exposure, or a partially shaded situation, is best adapted to its successful cultivation. Our recollection of the result of the investigations of the gentleman first alluded to — whose name, if our memory is correct, was Junius Smith — is, that he decided that the soil, climate, latitude, and exposure prevailing in the region of Greenville, S. C., were best suited to the tea plant. If we are right, and the experiments in progress in North Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana, prove as favorable as they promise, there is an extensive belt of country in the Confederate States adapted to the cultivation and preparation of this valuable plant and favorite beverage
The Ricket Bank Suspensions. --The Government of Great Britain, in one of its most trying emergencies, authorized the suspension of the Bank of England, which, by its extraordinary and unexampled credit, though in a state of suspension, enabled that Government to carry on its operations through a most expensive war; and the combined capital and credit of all the banks in the Confederate States is about equal to the Bank of England, and will enable our young Confederacy to carry on the war without sending its bonds abroad, begging foreign capitalists to take them, or hawking its Treasury notes in small quantities over the country for sale, as the Lincoln Government is now compelled to do, to sustain itself. A general suspension of specie payment is at all times to be regretted, and we who remember the days of 1837 and its inconveniences, hoped never to witness another; but that was brought about by causes and circumstances totally dissimilar from the present, and as different
Mineral resources of the Confederacy. --Mr. N. A. Pratt, of Talmadge, Ga., writing to the Savannah Republican, devotes a part of his letter to the mineral resources of the Confederate States. We make the following extracts: "It may be of interest to your readers to know, that, having spent the last summer in a general geological reconnaissance of North Georgia, East Tennessee, and North Carolina, I have had a special eye to those mineral resources which could be made specially available against our Northern foes. Saltpetre, sulphur, and lead, have all claimed my attention. "The three States mentioned cannot supply lead enough for a single battle of this metal; however, we have, or can get, all we shall need. With regard to sulphur, it can be made in abundance from the pyrite, which exists in large quantities in various localities. The apparatus and process are extremely simple, but we will not soon be obliged to resort to our native supplies, as I believe there is
l. His exertions to keep up sympathy for the cause of his native land, however, made him obnoxious to the timorous Government of Louis Phillippe, and in 1837 we see him an exile again, wending his way to the land of liberty and promise — the United States. Here he made himself universally known as a lecturer and public speaker, advocating the cause of Poland, and addressing some 500 assemblies in the Northern and Western States, and almost all their State Legislatures, some of which listened xpected in Europe became delayed, and seeing the hopelessness of further endeavors, he devoted himself to the legal profession, was in 1845 admitted to the bar of New York, and soon after became a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. It was he that brought to an issue the famous case of the heirs of Kosciusko, recovering for them most valuable property which that illustrious Pole had left in this country. During the last Presidential election he supported Douglas for t
om a lithographic establishment in this city, and will answer the purpose very well. It is an engraving of the head of President Davis with the words "Confederate States of America" above, and "Five Cents" below. The color of this stamp will be red, while those of larger denominations will be colored differently. They will be rert, says the years 1859-'60 showed a marked improvement as compared with preceding years! We learn from the Department that post-masters throughout the Confederate States are required to make a report of all moneys in their hands on the 1st of June, 1861, belonging to the United States; the sum to be divided pro rate among thUnited States; the sum to be divided pro rate among the contractors who have continued the mail service. It will give some idea of the busines of the Department ot state that one clerk in the Contract Bureau alone, has recorded 3,700 letters since the 1st of June, without counting the circulars, which are sent off in vast numbers. We have no desire to apologize for any defec
Exterprising. --Some indefatigable citizen of the Confederate States has sent us a "letter" addressed to "A. Lincoln," which takes up about a yard and a half of foolseap closely written and pasted together, page after page. Such industry, displayed in any other particular amusement, might be commendable; but we are inclined to think that in this case, about ten day's labor has been unequivocally lavished and irrevocably lost.
s been noticed in our columns, we have been placed in possession of a copy of the Washington National Republican, of the 20th, from which we gather the following Rema: Arrival of the steamship Europa. Halifax, Sept. 18. --The steamship Europa from Liverpool, Saturday, 7th, via Queenstown, Sept. 8th, has arrived at this port. At a meeting of the British Association, Mr. Bazele, of Manchester, read another paper on the cotton question, in which the commercial policy of the United States was bitterly denounced, and the expediency of England freeing herself from dependence on America strongly urged. Affidavits have been sent to America proving that Serrill, who was recently arrested at New York, had no politic I mission from England, and that the money found in his possession was for business purpose only. The interview between the Emperor Napoleon and the King of Prus in has been assigned to take place at Compeigne on the 2nd of October. A marriage is cont
Their torce was probably two hundred men, but it might as well have been two or three thousand men, who could have landed and given a night surprise to all of Bragg's army as effectually as they did to the guardians of the Navy-Yard, if no better vigilance was practiced anywhere than by these. Or they might have gone up and captured, or attempted to capture, Pensacola, for their heavy launches were safe within the perilous passage in which we imagine would be destroyed the Navy of the United States should it attempt to run the gauntlet of our batteries. There is no disguising the fact that the enemy have achieved a feat worthy to be named with the best deeds of naval daring and prowess and have taught us a lesson which should give us a realizing sense of the perils to which we coast dwellers are exposed by the presence in our waters of such a foe. They are off Mobile as well as Pensacola, and their great launches, carrying fifty men, armed with howitzers of heavy calibre, and comm
