The termination of a sanguinary contest, which foi
the past four years has presented an impassable barrier
to all social or commercial Intercourse between the
two great sections of our country, having at length
happily cleared away all obstacles to a removal of
those relations which formerly bound us together in a
fraternal union, I take the earliest opportunity afford
ed me by this auspicious event, to greet my Southern
friends, and to solicit from them a renewal of that ex.
teusive business connection which for a quarter of a
century has been uninterrupted save by the great pub
lic calamity to which I have adverted.
It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a busi
ness re-union, I should repeat the warning so often
given to my friends,—to beware of all those spurious
and deleterious compounds which, nnder the specious
and false titles of Imported Wines, Brandies, Holland
Gin, Liquors, &c., have been equally destructive to
the health of our citizeus and prejudicial to the interest
of the legitimate Importer.
Many years of my past life have been expended in
an open and candid attempt to expose these wholesale
frauds; no time nor expense has been spared to ac
complish this salutary purpose, and to place before
my frieuds and the public generally; at the lowest
possible market price, and in such quantities as might
suit their convenience, a truly genuine imported arti
Twenty-five years’ business transactions with the
largest and most respectable exporting houses in
France and Great Britain have afforded me unsurpass
ed facilities for supplying our home market with
Wines, Liquors, and Liquersof the best and most ap
proved brands in Europe, in addition to my own dis
tillery in Holland for the manufacture of the “Schie
The latter, so long tested and approved by the med
ical Faculties of the United States, West Indies and
South America as an invaluable Therapeutic, a whole
some, pleasant, and perfectly safe beverage in all cli
mates and during all seasons, quickly excited the cu
pidityof the home manufacturers and venders of a
spurious article uuder the same name.
I trust that I have, after much toil aud expense, sur
rounded all my importatiorjp with safeguards and di
rections which with ordinary-circumspection willtfn
sure their delivery, as 1 receive them from Europe, to
all my customers.
I would, however, recommend in ull cases where it
is possible, that orders be sent direct to my Depot, 22
Beaver street, New York, or that purchases be made
of my accredited agents.
In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies, &c.,
in wood, I have a considerable supply of old tried for
eign wines, embracing vintages of many past years,
bottled up before the commencement of the war,
which I can especially recommend to all connoisseurs
of these rare luxuries.
In conclusion, 1 would specially call the early atten
tion of my Southern customers to the advantage to be
derived by transmitting their orders without loss of
time, or calling personally at the Depot, in order to
insure the fulfillment of their favors from the present
large and well selected assortment.

There was a large attendance of buyers,
and bidding was spirited, considering the
tendency of the atmosphere.
Reminiscence of John Mltchsll the
Tne London correspondent of the New
York Tribune has the following in a recent
I was in Charleston, South Carolina, In the
memorable Winter of 1860-I—Secession
time—and bad considerable opportunities of
observing the events and individuals of that
epoch. Being, one evening, at the office of
one of the principal, newspapers of the city
I found there, with its editor, a beardless lad
of 20, thin and slight of figure, of middle
height, with round grey eyes, rather an aqui-v
line nose, a decided moutb, and anything
but an agreeable expression of countenance
His face only lacked vigor and fellness 'o
have served for an exact model for a grand
inquisitor. There was a look of latent, dan
gerous fanaticism in it which curiously at
tracted, yet repelled you. This youth prov
ed to be John Mitchel, junior, and he was
worthy of his paternity. (His father by
the by, was then in Paris, acting as corres
pondent to the Charleston Mercury )
“Young Vitriol”—for by that designation he
was privately known to myself and others—
had come from Uis adopted State of Ala
bama to offer his services to South Carolina
and the holy cause of secession. He had
a good manner and address, was a land-sur
veyor by profession, and lionized it in
Charleston on the strength of his name and
origin. Living in the same hotel, I saw a
good deal of him, The fanatical faith in
Slavery and the South exhibited by this lad
was something appalling; he had adopted
all its extreme features—especially belief in
the revival of the slave trade—with a perver
sity becoming his primogeniture. His coat
displayed a huge gash, recently sewn up, for
which he accounted by a pleasing story df a
“difficulty” with a friend to whom he had
carelessly applied the epithet of “submis
sionist” in an Alabama ball-room, when
the gentlemau responded by a cut at his
breast with a bowie knife. “On which
1 took the liberty of putting a bullet through
his hat, just above the he said Michael
junior, adding, naively. “He was the dear
egt f r iend I had in the world.” Young Vit
ways carried a revolver—Dean and
xiol al patent being his “favorite” weapon.
Adam’snight of my introduction to him he
discoursed, of Abolitionists, and narrated
how he had assisted at lynching one in Ala
bama, only two weeks back, stating the time
and locality. “And,” he said, “1 am not
ashamed to say that I pulled at the rope. I
was on the jury that tried him, and I helped
to hang him. I render myself amenable to
the law by the admission, tor as it was done
by the Vigilance Committee, of which I am
a member, it was, of course, illegal. But I
am confidng it to gentlemen and men of hon
or.” Acd I have no doubt that this boy—
whose frail arm was hardly thicker than a
rabbit’s leg, which one could have snapped
bp a vigorous twist of the wrist—had pulled
at the rope and assisted at the murder of
apme “Yankee”—one of the many nameless
assassinations occvuring in the evil days of
the domination of Slavery, before the war
began. Mitchell, junior, got on the stafl of
Gov. Pickens subsequently, and was sent to
Virginia to propogate “secesh” doctrines
there and help engineer the State out of the
Union, from which expedition he returned
despairing of success and denouncing the Old
Dominion —as was the fashion in Charleston
just then. That was before Sumter. When
then Rebels fired on the Star of the West,
thereby committing their first act of overt
hostility to the United States Goverment, his
enthusiasm was prodigious. “I was all alone,”
he said to me, “out on Sullivan’s Island, but
if I didn't throw mv hat up and hurrah, it’s
a pity 1”
In July, 1864, this promising youth got
killed by a cannon-ball, while in command
at Fort Sumter as Capt. John Mitcheil.
