Happily, as m the case of some ol the an cient cities, this a prolific source of wealth and aggrandizement A visitor toiler long line of wharves,crowded with the shipping of every civilized nation, ull busily cugag ed in discharging their varied cargoes, would tie astonished nt the magnitude of her trade. No wonder that her people are merchants princes, and so many evidences of splendor and opulence ure to he obser ved on every side. The cotton business of the present season lias far exceeded that of last year. It is a noteworthy fact also, that of the immense sums falling due in hunk on the first instunt nearly every dol lar was promptly covered with the cash. Asa consequence money is comparatively easy, and the merchants are doing a most encouraging and satisfactory business Tbe transactions of wholesale houses have been very heavy, ami all Unit Is wanting to make Savannah the grand entrepot of Southern coniintrcc, is direct importations from abroud by one or more line ol ocean steamships. Until these are established we never can be really independent ot tbe North, though many interior merchant* now do their trading here." The unsophisticated reader will not fail to lie struck with the, —now you see it und now you don't see it, of so aide a commer cial paragraph. 1.

The following, from a late number of the Bulurdoy Keview, treats of works well and favorably known among us, one a compilation, the other a closely written life of our undying hero —it. K. Lee, by Miss Emily V. Mason of Virginia Two works by Miss Emily Mason pos sess a considerable, if a melancholy, in terest, especially for that very large class ol Englishmen who have not wholly for gotten their former sympathy for the he roic endurance of tho Southern people, the splendid military qualities of the Con federnie soldiers, the diameter of their great leader, and the terrible catastrophe which crushed their hope and mined their epuntry. The one is it collection of Southern poems, written during the war, ami called forth by its various inci dents and by the sutlerings which it in volvcd. Muuy of them are touching und graceful, amt several are spirited , but on the whole we are surprised that so grand a theme and so exalted a state of feel ing should have called forth so little poe try of real merit —so little that can stir the hearts even of those who felt most warmly for Hie cause who vicissitudes of fortune gave occasion to these pieces, and for the gniluiil men aud patient women whose deeds and whose sorrows are therein ro cortled. There are scarcely in the w hole collection half-a-dozen pieces worthy of being included in an American anthology with even the political poems of Lowell or W hit tier, and not above two or three which are likely to tix themselves in the memo lies of Knglihli readers. The touching Utile picture of tho sentry’s murder, "All quiet along the l’olomae to-night," the stirring Invocation to (lie "Old Line State,” which, in spite of the extreme carelessness and badness of some lines and stanzas, deserved its high popularity as a patriotic ballad ("My Maryland.") aud llie lively little song, so redolent of the bivouac nud llie watchflru, so dear even yet to tho memories of the "old brigade,” which recalls the military and personal peculiarities of “Stonewall Jackson’s way,” ure all fa miliar to English readers of American poetry. So is that inexpressibly mournful elegy iu which the wail of a defeated, hu miliated and ruined nation over its dead hopes aud humbled pride finds such thrilling expression—“ Tho Conquered Haulier.” incomparably the best piece in the volume. Hut of those which are new <" though there are several which wt arc glad to nave m<,, tUuiu i„ lonily otic which will linger in our memory along with these, or which Is likely to recall to future generations of Southerners the pas sinus, the sorrows, ami the glories of the great wariu which their fathers tought so vainly, but so well. The other volume Is u popular Life of General Lee , e\ eoedingly readable, and worthy of some thing more than ephemeral popularity. The report of such a career could lmrd fail to he at once interesting anil instruc tive , for such a tile and such a nature are rare Indeed even among the noblest per sonages of history, and contains every thing that can contribute to render a bi ography attractive to renders of all ages and all tastes We have a story as event ful as that of the most adventurous heroes of romance, as sad os the saddest tragedy . a character as pure and as lolly, as simple and true, as that of the purest ideal of chivalry , a spirit as deeply and devoutly religious, a faith as strong, a morality os striet :ts ttisi of the sternest Puritan, coupled with a perfect simplicity, charity, and freedom from everything like cant or atlecllon. General Loe’s piety was of that type which the Anglican Church, to which he belonged, seems peculiat !y to encour age and approve . quiet, somewhat re tinet. never obtruded on others, yet felt and sr'en in every act and every speech, his soldierly simplicity, liis high-bred courtesy, wore as remarkable as Ids great ness in command and bis heroism in disaster. Such a life eveu the worst biographer could hardly mar . and Miss Mason tells its story in a style worthy of the subject— ktraigbUorw ard and simple, clear and prac tical . not hero-worship either to load her uanutivc with unnecessary letters and tri vial ancedotev or to spotl it by intrusive eulogies. What is yet more creditable to a feud nine biographer, she contrives to tell the story of Ice s campaigns as it sliouhl bo told for the general public avoiding all technical explanations and military details, yet making the general course of events perfectly intelligible, choosing the standpoint of the chief whose history she is writing, and making her accounts of bailies and marches really a I*ol of General Lee s biography, aud not a degression into the hisiorv of Coufede rate States, or into the records of the Army of Virgiuiu. There is not very j much that is new in her work ; hut there are few interesting and characteristic an ecdotes, especially of the General’s Inter years, which we do not remember to have seen before, which are well told and well worth telling.

On the day after the Democratic Con vention which met at Uallimore had nom inated Horace Greeley for the high office of President of the United Kuites two gentlemen had a friendly discussion as to j the merits of that candidate ut No. 12. J j West Houston street, ut the house of Mr. | Henry llusch. The names of the two gentlemen were Mr. Lionel Keane, a clerk in tbe house of William G. Leusk & Cos . who are the importers of laces, next door to the Ht. Nicholas Hotel, and Mr. Win. II Van Gicson, proprietor of an oyster saloon, ut 112 West Houston street. Gen eral Grant hud been nominated ut Phila delphia on the !lth of June, in convention, and Mr. Greeley’s nomination followed In July. Mr. Van Gieson Is a Grant mail.

He is of slender frame, but has large bones, and all bis re lations for eighyt live year have been in the oyster business Mr. \an Gieson has a model of an oyster schooner in Ids place of business. Mr. Lionel Keanu is a New Yorker, wiio weighs 1 l!l pounds, and i* live leet eleven and a half inches high. Doth of the political antagonists were exactly twenty-six yeais of age. Tbe mutton chop whiskers of Mr. Keane were not so large or so productive a-t those of Mr. Van Gicson hut he had a clear eye, a solid form and a determined look. Mr. Van Gieson hacked Grant very en thusiastically. and declared that ho would he elected. Mr. Keane believed that Mr. Greeley would he our next Piesldent, und was willing to give odds on his election. • Don't let us list money on the election or we will lose our votes,” said Mr. Keane. "Well, if you are satisfied, I am,"replied Mr. Nan Gieson. "What will we do?" "Let us do something: let us wheel the man who loses up Hroudtvay after tlie election ” "No,” said Keane, “if I I >se 1 will carry you on my hack from the house of Mr. Henry llusch, 12.7 West Houston street, to Union square, and I will take around the statue ol Lincoln three times and then down Broadway to 12.1 West Houston street agian. We must have a hand of music and a torchlight procession to ac company us, so that we can have some good fun "And if Grant is beaten 1 will cairy a loaded musket in my shirtsleeves up and down before Husch’s door for three hours, with a loaded knapsack full of bricks,” said Van Gieson. THE AOUKKMKNT WAS MADE, and last evening the bet was paid. Mr. Keane, who felt had that Horace Greeley had been defeated, w as ready last evening to pay his forfeit. A great crowd began to assemble at 123 Houston street, and Henry liuscb bad all be could do to serve lager to the thirsty mass. Keane was the first man to make bis appearance ami lie looked cool, quiet and calm, like Hilly Edwards before a light. Van Qicson came soon after, and the Herald reporter interviewed him briefly. He wanted to bet every way—- "hundred to twenty live" that Keane could not carry him, or a hundred to twenty-five that Keane would carry him. The peo ple begun to look for ihe German hand, who had been at the saloon, but could not be found. Van Qicson ate four fries ear ly in the morning, and at two o'clock Keane dined ou roust beef, beans and mince pie. The crowd was swelling all the time, aad soon the people in the street saw them coming. They find walked all the way from Third street and Third av enue to save the live cents ear fare on the Houston street ear. A mo FI'RSITUItE THVOK. was tilled with oaken chairs, and the crowd poured in. A. man in the truck bore a large American Hag. A barouche was ready, with a driver, who never laugh ed while the journey was being made. The German hand got into the truck, and the barouche followed up Houston street to South Fifth avenue, nml through Amity street to Broadway, with Keane, Vau Glesou, Henry Husch and the Herald re porter sitting together. A young gentle man named Andrews carried a permission (io Mi Superintendent Kelso lo "form a procession ten feet in width inside of the curb," which lie showed to everyone, at Ihe head of u mass of one thousand per sons The truck with the band of music reached I’liion square, the hand playing crazy waltzes all the time, to the amuse moot.of the people ou the sidewalks and in the windows, who could not under stand it, and who believed it to be a circus just arrived. Arrived nl Union Square, some solemn ceremonies were performed. The barouche was drivcu around the Liucoln statue twice, and Keane stood up ami took oil' his overcoat, which lie passed to a man with a romantic goalee to hold. Thou \ an Oeison took oil' his clonk and frock coat and vest, and AS THE BAND PLAYED, lie apiH'aied standing up in the barouche with Keane amid the eheers of the large crowd, the moving of Chinese lanterns and the blaze of lire works. Solemnly Van Gcison cried out, "I want another drink," and Keane answered, us lie de scended to shoulder bis political antagon ist, "No. 1 won't let you do that. 11l be blamed if I am going to carry a whiskey distillery down Broadway. You have got enough already " (Cheers.) Then Keane said, "1 want that surcingle to put around and over my hips." Then he stooped his hack and Van Giesou. with an inebriate shout, leaped across his back, having DIVESTED HIMSELF OF HIS SHOES a moment licfore. The procession was loruied, the hand stretched itself across Broadway. the young men with the Chi nese lanterns tonned also with a ludicrous gravity, and to one of Strauss'wild and demonical waltzes, and amid screams, catcalls and yells of laughter, the insane march proceeded down Broadway. ll is simply impossible for the Herald reporter w ho left Hie barouche and march ed alongside of Keane and Van Geisou down Broadway to eveu attempt to de scribe tlie most uproarious of uproarious oi scenes Its like will uerer probably be seeu again iu our greatest street. People came out of stores and buildings to shout and scream, and tlie excitement was awful. 1 here was the man. in his white linen shirt, jumping up and down on the back i of the perspiring Keane, aud the hand playing the w idest of waltzes all the time. A request was made that they should play cither tire "Star Spangled llanner " or the “Wacht and Klreitn ” but, strange to say, they could not perform either. AT ISLEF.KF.It STREET and Broadway, Keane took a rest in the middle of the street,according to agreement, the band played again while lie took a drink of brandy and sat on a chair, carefully keeping the legs of Van Gieson off the pavement while getting the drink Irom a bottle, which Van Gicson smashed after words. The band again played. '1 he march down Houston street was a scene of wild triumph, and when the crowd reached 12.'t Houston street three rousing cheers were given for a plucky little Uicc le/ man, who had struggled so bravely and had run so well.— Herald. AN ADDRESS. By the United States Centennial Com mission. To the People of the United Stater : The Congress of tho United Slates has enacted that the completion of the One Hundredth Year of American Independ ence shall ho celebrated hy an Intel na tional Exhibition of the arts, manufactures, and products of the soil and mine, to be held at Philadelphia, iu 187fi, and has ap pointed a commission, consisting of repre sentatives from each State and Territory, to conduct the celebration. Originating under the auspices of the National Legislature, controlled hy a Na tional Commission, and designed as it is to “Commemorate the first Century of our existence, hy an exhibition of the natural resources of the country and their devel opment, and of our progress iu those arts which benefit mankind, in comparison with those of older Nations." it is to the people at large that the Commission look for the aid which is necessary to make the Centennial Celebration the grandest anni versary the world lias ever seen. That the completion ol the first century of our existence should be marked by some imposing demonstration is, we be lieve, the patriotic wish of the people of the whole country. The Congress of tbe United States has wisely decided that the Birth day oi the Great Republic can he most fittingly celebrated by the universal collection and display of all the trophies of its progress. It is designed to bring together, within a building covering fifty acres, not only the varied productions of our mines and of the soil, but types of all the intellectual triumphs of our citizens, specimens of everything that America can furnish, whether from the bruins or the hands of her children, aud thus make evi dent to tbe world the advancement of which a self governed people is capable In this "Celebration” all nations will bo invited to participate ; its character be ing International. Europe will display her arts and manufactures, India her curi ous fabrics, while newly opened Cliiua and Japan will lay bare tbe treasures which for centuries their ingenious people have been perfecting. Each land will compete iu generous rivalry for the palm of superior excellence. To this grand gathering every zone will contribute its fruits aud cereals. No min eral shall be wanting ; for what the East lacks the West will supply. Under one roof will the South display iu rich luxu riance her growing cotton, aud the North in miniature, tiic ceaseless machinery of her mills converting that cotton into cloth. Each section of the globe will send its best offerings to this exhibition, and each State of the Union, as a member of one united body politic, will show to her sister States and to the world, how much she can add to the greatness of the nation of which she is a harmonious part. To make the Centennial Celebration such a succoes as Hie patriotism aud the pride of every American demands will re quire the co operation of the people of the whole country. The United States Cen tennial Commission has received no Gov ernment aid, such as England extended to her World's Fair, mid France to her Uni versal Exposition, yet the labor and re sponsibility imposed upon tho Commission is ns great as either of those undertakings. It is estimated that ten millions of dollars will he required, and this sum Congress Ims provided shall be raised by stock sub scription, and that the people shall have the opportunity of subscribing in propor tion to the population of their respective States and Territories. The Commission looks to the unfailing patriotism of the people of every section, to see that each contributes its share to the expenses, and receives its share of the benefits of an enterprise in which all are so deeply interested. It would further earnestly urge the formation in each State and Territory of a centennial organization which shall in time see that county' associ ations are formed, so that when the na tions arc together in 1870 each Common wealth cun view with pride the contribu tions she lias made to the national glory. Confidently relying on the zeal and pa triotism ever displayed by our people in every national undertaking, we pledge and prophecy, that the Centennial Cele bration w ill w orthily show how greatness, wealth and intelligence, can be fostered by such iuslitulious as those which have for one hundred years blessed the people of the United States.
