The Stveu Wonders.
From the Journal of Commerce.!
New York, May 7, 1879. Will
be so kind as to give me a list of
Seven Wonders of the World," and if
possible, a brief description of each ? A
list that I have contains, 1. The Colos
sus of Rhodes ; 2. The Pyramids of
Egypt ; 3. The Aqueducts of Rome ; 4.
The Labyrinth of Psammeticus ; 5. The
Pharos of Alexandria; 6. The Walls of
Babylon ; 7, The Temple of Diana. I
am given to understand that it is de
fective. Reply. There have been several lists
of the Seven Wonders of the World, but
the phrase originated among the Greeks,
and the group originally described by
Philo the Byzantine, in his work De
Septem Orbis Spectaculis," consists of
(1) The Pyramids of Egypt, (2) The
Hanging Gardens of Babylon, (3) The
Mausoleum, (4) The Temple of Diana
at Ephesus. (5) The Colossus of Rhodes,
(6) The Statue of the Olympian Jupiter,
and (7) The Pharos of Alexandria. We
described each of these at considerable
length some time ago in our columns.
The later or middle ages gave us a new
list, viz: (1) The Coliseum at Rome, (2)
The Catacombs of Alexandria, (3) the
Great Wall of China, (4) Stonehenge, (5)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa, (6) The
Porcelain Tower of Nankin, and (7)
The Mosque of St. Sophia at Constan
tinople. The phrase originated, howev
er, in its application to the list first giy
en, and for several centuries was con
fined to that order, the only change be
ing that some placed the Pharos of
Egypt even before the Pyramids. The
wonderful tower or lighthouse was
built on a small island in the Bay of Al
exandria, 284 years before Christ. It
was of white marble, 500 feet high ; it
was built one story above another, each
adorned with columns,. balustrades and
galleries of the finest marble and work
manship, and could be seen at a dis
tance of . 100 miles. - Fires were
kindled on the top to light the en
trance to the harbor Many have sup
posed t,hat the auther of the group to
which the name- was applied merely un
dertook to describe the most wonderful
seven tilings in the world, whereas be
merely gye the name to seven great
works or art which he chose to describe.

The Mineral Wealth of South Carolina.

The. mineral wealth of the Southern
Statespeciallyof those portions Which
lie along the spurs of the Alleghany, has
always Deen known, and as far back as
1804 Governor Drayton, of South Caro
lina, called attention to some special
developments of it. Since then various
experiments have been made with m uch.
success in Chesterfield, Union and Ab
beville counties, in that State, and there
are at present, well, known and well de
veloped mines, which have yielded rea
sonable profit.' even under unskiflfull
and unscientific working in Pickens, Oc
onee, Spartanburg and Kershaw ooun-
ties. One striking feature Inall these
mines is the unusual ncnnessor, tne
ores, even where the-quantity of rock,
excavated has beea large,' leading .to the
inevitable;, eoncltisio,n that tytth experi
ehceti and.skilled labor the yield or the

results of thia conftt Con

"It !is one Qf grave lk$p$y 'ce of the
most vital ihirl tcbt; is One.;6f
tfie best moves for the jiarty that could
have been made. Xot, understand me,
because it is a party moyement, but be
cause theVparty is right in the principle
and the purpose that are at issue in the
contest. . ' ' ' ;; .
"Do you feel hopefiil of the party's
success ?". , . ? . .
"I was never more hopeful in my life.:
I dare not tell you how confident I "do
feel. . The outlook from our standpoint
is full of the promises of success, and if
nothing happens , beyond what is now
foreseen, We are certain to come out tri
umphant, I haver both hope for the
country.and for th artyJ :
"These issue-' pwbding' in Congress
cause a strict party division,, da-they
"Yes, the -effect of these measures has
been to solidify bofli parties and to
sharply define and bring into promi
nence before the country the distinc
tion between the parties. They present
the Republican party in its naked atti
tude as the party of force, of centraliza
tion, of military government. At first,
some of the Republicans did not con
sent to this distinction ' being drawn.
When we first presented the issue by
putting these political riders upon the.
appropriation bills some of thera de
clared they would yote for them as sep.
ar ate measures, but the question has
been so debated and gone so far that
they have all united, and are now pre
senting a solid front in favor of a gov
ernment of force. The Democrats are
as solidly and determinedly opposed to
it, and the issue is made between the
parties at that point."
"And to further what programme do
they seek to perpetuate these laws V"
"Their objectds plain. They want
to perpetuate themselves in the govern
ment. Having worn out the. purely sec
tional issues, 'thev are now used as
make weights. Having succeeded in
keeping control of the "presidency by
fraud they find that they succeed only
to lose forever the opportunity of re
peating the like fraud. Now they seek
to make use of the opportunity gained
by that fraud to use force for the main
tenance of their supremacy, The issue
is then one of life and death to the Re
publican party, and their only hope of
further life is in the power to use force
to subvert the will of the people."
"Where will this issue be fought out,
North or South V"
"Why, in the North, of conrse."
"Yet the South will not be disinter
ested in the result?"
"i3y no means; for should the Repul
lican schemers succeed in this conspira
cy and create a solid North, giving them
the presidency and Congress once
more, then the troubles of the South
will begin anew. Their first move
ment will be to cut off the representa
tion of the South, and she will never
again be allowed to appear in Congress
in her full strength and with her real
weight.,-JChjaia thejlanger which men
aces the South, and which will keep her
united to defeat so bold and unscrupu
lous a plot."
"What do you think of the last veto by
"It was expected and is absurd. The
reasons assigned by him for vetoing the
bill are trifling. The idea that this bill
repeals the legislation of 1790 and 1792
is the veriest nonsense."
"What do you think of the President's
purpose in taking this bold stand
against this legislation ?"
"Why, he has gone over, body and
soul, to the radical side of his party.
He has most unquestionably gone back
on himself, and is now controlled by
the very worst element of his party.
Winning him over to their schemes was
the great triumph they had to gain, for
without his co-oporation all they, did
was emptiness. They had to have him,
and it is said that he has even been told
that to join with them would be to so
lidify the party, identify him as its
great leader and make him the party
candinate of next year."
"Do you really believe he looks to be
ing his own successor?" "-''; '
"I do. You see he held the stakes in
his own hand. He could dictate terms
and the party could afford to promise
anything for success, since without him
that sucoesa would be impossible. It
is said he has been promised re-election
and that he has joined the rabid leaders
in their schemes with a view to that
"Well, to sum up the probabilities,
what think you of their chances to win
upon that line, or at all?" -
"My candid opinion is that they have
not the slightest chance to win. They
will not succeed. The people aire
j brought face to face with an essential
brought face to faee with an essential
ment, or whether force shall create,
maintain and-perform the funetipns of .

I do not doubt the result of that issue ?"
