COX.TJ1MCBIA. Saturday Morning, Jona'17, 1866. True Courage and Proper WilL Wherever a great reform is to be ef? fected, a proper will must be put in exer? cise. Will and courage are grand essen? tials in the attainment of any grand result. All virtue, to possess any real value, to be made available for any useful purpore in society, must be coupled with a large de? gree of courage. What we call enterprise implies a certain amount of courage, and this courage, where enforced by intelligent thought, cencentratively directed to a given and soecific object, can. hardly help being successful. That enterprisers cou? rage, nnd that courage implies intellect,is . suggestive of a distinct argument to the pride of a people; since, in performance? we grow to a consciousness of elevation ia our aims, and capacity in the execution of our projects. We are required to be bold and resolute even to attempt what we deem to be necessary to our safety or prosperity? But there is a more essential coura...

Monday Morning, June 19, 18?5. Here a Line and There, a Line! "We .must sow the seed, though it shall happen that much of it will fall on stony. ?andy and otherwise sterile places. If a -few seeds shall hero ?nd lhere survive, in a susceptible and fertile soil, the labor which has sown will be rewarded after certain .days in the fruit which they shall produce. And even if the sower himself does not reap, his children may, his race mustf and possibly all the generations of the .earih. It is a beautiful trait reported of the Spaniards, lhat when they eat a peach along the roadside, they carefully plant the stone where they have eaten. They may never travel that road again, but some one will, and the fruit thus seared for the possible wayfarer* is as direct an act of charity as if you took lire foot sore wanderer into your house and spread the board before him. And so, dear readers, we must sow our thoughts and ideas, though we are too well. assured that they pass through unheeding ear...

Thursday Moruing, June 22, Ift?b. , morals of Sorrow. " But for the sorrows of the heart, where would the affections find their strength? Our virtues, like the aromatic shrubs of the forest, only give out their sweets when their leaves are bruised and trampled. He who lias not felt of sorrow, may be scarcely said to have known love, since the most precious joys of the soul arise from sym? pathies that are seldom known till they atc sought, and neve;-sought till they are necessary to soothe an. infirmity or satisfy a need. Economy cf Time. The best key to success is the provi? dence of time. After all, the most valua? ble of our human possessions is time, since that is always limited lu duration. It fol? lows that he who is the best economist of this possession, has the largest, capital for business of any of bis competitors. But time, of course, implies hearth, strength, courage, resolution, temperance-without which, perhaps, there can be no economy in anything. DOMESTIC MAGNANIMITY...

COLUMBIA. Friday Morning, June 23, 1865. Taveau has the Picor. Mr. A. L. Taveau, of Charleston, has addressed to the New York Tribune a let * 1er of two columns ?a the condition of th? .country, and bi? ideas in respect to it. Had Mr. Taveau made his letter shorter by some scveu eighths, and put five ??mes as much substance inj.o it, we should, be pleased to give it ia place as embodying {to use the title given it in the Tribune) < "the ideas of a South Carolinian." Of these ideas we can add need say very little. Mr. Taveau, like a wise men, d?eB does not squander his i-d^as. and simply accepts a condition o lathings, from which j he can make no escape. He endeavors, in his own way, to extract a grateful and life-giving philosophy from au experience of thorns and stubble in a desert-a process 1 very like t^ho extraction of sunbeams from a cucumber. He foresees "a grand future for the South," but his prophecy forbears indict ting the precise epoch for tho conting glory. Verily, Mr...

COLUMBIA.. Mon M omi ti g, Jane 26, 1865. Consolation Books. Looking about for consolation, we are sometimes counselled to the employment ol strange remedies, whether the ailment be oMhe body or the mind. Books are oi precious help to the latter in the mo? ments of doubt, brooding and anxiety; yet how variously do the tastes of men direct them in the choice of books. The Bible is undoubtedly the m?st-eommonly songht consoler. Not a few turn to Shakspeare and Milton, .seeking diversion from thought in the search of thought. Old Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" is a won. der of a book for th? troubled mind, and Butler's "Anatomy of Melancholy" affords rare feeding for fancj* as well as thought But we never once thought of lo-king to Robinson Crusoe for more than the gi.tifi cation o' curiosity and a passsing pleasure, until happening upon ar. advertisement of the book, in a Spanish translation, by a bookseller of Madrid.
