Gold and Silver.—Few, who have not stud ied the subject, have any just idea of the in creased production of the precious metals since 1848, when gold was first discovered in Califor nia. The estimated available annual production in 1847, amounted to $27,715,000 of silver, _nd $15,675,000 in gold, making a total yield of $43,390,000 per annum to supply the use aud loss of these precious metals. After 1848 the production rapidly increased up to the beginning of this year, when the annual yield was estima ted in round numbers at $50,000,000 in silver, and $250,000,000 in gold, making a total pro duct of $300,000,000, against less than $50,- --000,000 only about ten years ago! But a uew phase is about to appear in connection with this production. Heretofore, it will be seen, the most important gain has been in gold ; for while the annual production of silver has only in creased 80 per cent., the production of gold has increased 1,500 per cent., a change so vast thai its ultimate effect ...

much he may desire to frighten any one, his threats are useless. I have seen too many dogs, to be frightened at their baying, and too many bulls, to notice their bellowing. If he has learn ed anything, concerning me, by his espionage, he can tell it. I have done nothing I am not willing should be made known, I hope he can say the same, But he must not fear I shall stoop so low and act so abject and mean as to employ spies to examine into his conduct. And if his "country correspondence" wa9 more "numerous" he might learn "what the people of the Circuit think of his clique." Nor need he fear that 1 shall make a jndicial can paign the opportunity of venting a long pent-up rage upon the candi date of an opposition party, and revive puerile recollections, which if true, have no bearing up on the question before tbe people.

■ .... _ ■ " ; a——— MISCELLANEOUS, HOSTETTER'S STOMACHJITTERS. The proprietors and manufacturers of HOS TETTER'S CELEBRATED STOMACH BIT TERS can appeal -with perfect confidence to physicians and citizens generally of the United States, because the article has attained a repu tation heretofore unknown. A few facts upon this point will speak more powerfully than volumes of bare assertion or blazoning puffery. The consumption of Hostetter's Stomach Bit ters for the last year amounted to over a half million bottles, and from its manifest steady increase in times past, it is evident that during the coming year the consumption will reach near one million bottles. This immense amount could never have been sold but for the rare medicinal properties contained in the prepara tion, and the sanction of the most prominent physicians in those sections of the country where the article is best known, who not only recommend the Bitters to their patients, but are ready at all times to give testimonia...

The Trouble at Carleston. This is said to be a world of troubles, and our Democratic friends have had their full share of them at Charleston. Aftor a career of unpar alleled success, the agitation of the slavery ques tion, which, some how or other, has operated to their advantage heretofore, has at last divided the party, with little prospect at present of a future re uuion. We are not disposed to make light of the occurrence. The disruption of a great party, which has boasted ol its unity and nationality, upon a sectional issue, is an event of vast importance, and its effecto, so far as relates to the perpetuity of the Union, cannot now be predicted.
