BLOOM El US L PHILADELPHIA.
The Philadelphia papers all notice the
in.crea.se of wearers of the Bloomer dress
in that city. The Inquirer, of Monday
morning, says :
" On Saturday night last there could
not have been less than twenty or thirty
Bloomers in Chesnut street, between eight
and ten o'clock. They were all accom
panied l)y gentlemen, and attracted much
attention. Indeed, the side-walks were
thronged with pedestrians and spectators,
attracted no doubt, by the fact that the
lUoomers are in the habit of promenading
on that street almost every evening.
They appear to be on the increase, and we
are glad to observe that the annoyance
to which they were at first subjected have
now entirely ceased.

On an average, much lower than for ma
ny years past ; and in the face of astrin
gent, dear money market, the depressed
lion, and the continued, large exporx of
gold.no practical man contemplates an
improvement in prices; on the contrary,
it is reasonable to expect lower prices,
especially for breadstuff's.
It is well known that the home con
sumption of cotton has fallen off during
the last twelve months about one hundred
thousand bales, and that the iron interest
of the country is in a deplorable condi
tion ; to say nothing of losses sustained
by many of the cotton mills that continue
If all the cotton mills, manufactures
generally, and the iron furnaces were in
full operation, with only moderately re
munerative prices, it is palpable there
would be no balance of trade against us,
and the prices of cotton,, wheat, corn, and
Indeed almost all the products of the soil,
vould be higher, because there would be
much larger quantities required for home
consumption. We also solemnly believe
that for every dollar the farmer pays to
sustain manufactures at home, (not abroad,
as under the existing tariff,) he gets five
dollarsadditional price for his products.
How easy for any one to see that if for
the last two years our exports had been
more than our imports, the present condi
tion of merchantile affairs would not have
been brought upon us by immense exports
of coin, and that, instead of apprehend
ing graver financial difficulties, the coun
try would now be eminently prosperous.
; Though the writer is not affected by
the times, as he thinks it wiser to be idle
during a crisis, it is hoped that Congress
will consider it indispensable to do some
work before the end of December,iind, by
lessening imports, arrest the downward
tendency of things. No one desires high
duties, but they should be moderately pro
tective, and specific, as far as they can be
so, to put an end to frauds tremendous.

OCCURRENCES IN S. CAROLINA.
The more immediate interest of the cir
cumstances and consequences of the late
criminal enterprise, chiefly prepared with
in the cities of New Orleans and New
York, against4fthe Government and peo
ple of Cuba, has taken off very much the
attention of the Public from what is go
ing on in South Carolina in the way of
preparation for a war by that State against
the Government and People of the United
States. The Revolutionists in South Car
olina have, in the mean time, slackened
none of their zeal nor relaxed any of their
preparations for the conflict, or of their
efforts to dragoon, where they cannot ca
jole, the right minded and independent
portion of the People, into their schemes.
It looks now, however, as if a conflict of
opinion at least, if of no more serious cha
racter, is to be decided within the State,
before the State itself, as a State, arrays
against the rest of the Union. Some evi
idence of the approach of such an inter
nal conflict will be perceived by discern
ing readers in the article from one of the
Southern journals which we are about to
present to them.
More than six months ago, the reader
may recollect, we directed his attention
to the portents, even then visible, of a
Crushing despotism or a sanguinary inter
nal war in South Carolina as almost cer
tain to be the consequence of the isolation
6f the State from the Union. We quote
a single sentence from the National In
telligencer of the 15th of February last
to refresh the memory on this head:.,
, What reader does not see, that, in the
State, released from the restraints upon
injustice and cruelty imposed by the Fed
eral Government, denunciation, proscrip
tion, vengeful death in its most uncere
monious forms, confiscations of property,
and even attainder ot blood, might more

man of the Central Committee, we are
fully justified in leaving a broad margin
for the impious and unholy deeds medita
ted and acted upon in the secret council
over which Mr. Gregg presides.
I confess I am not sorry for this threat.
For bei..g thus forewarned, we will, I
trust, be forearmed. Let the freemen of
South Carolina take warning from this
note of preparation on the part of the
enemies of freedom, and at once organ
ize themselves into district associations,
as the " defenders of Southern rights a
gainst Southern tyranny." Let this or
ganization be perfected and perpetuated
as other similar ones are. Let the causes
that render it necessary be spread before
the world, and if our country is to be de
luged with blood and our own beloved
Carolina become a wilderness, let those
who record the massacres, the murders,
the rapes, and the conflagrations of the
dreadful hour be enabled to say: "The
commencement of the terrible catastro
phe was a threat on the part of a jacobin
club to inflict the death of traitors upon
the freemen of Greenville." Freemen of
