After a long and thorough trial, the
English Special Committee on Breech
Loading Rifles have concluded io recom
mend a combination of the Martini anil
Henry breech-loaders for adoption by the
British Government. The Committee statu
that from the many experiments they have
made, and from the evidence they have
received, they are confirmed in their opinion
that the Martini system is the best adapted
for military purposes of any that have
been brought before them. It is safe,
strong, simple of construction and of man
ipulation, and capable ot great rapidity of
firing, as is evidenced by the fact that 20
rounds were fired from it m 48 seconds.
The Committee, having by these trials,
satisfied themselves that the combination
of the Martini breech-mechanism with the
Henry barrel, had not caused any deteri
oration with respect to tbe efficiency of
either breech or barrel, and baviug already
reported that tbe Martini breech-mechanism
and the Henry barrel were each, sep
arately, the best of the several systems
which bad been brought under their no
tice, are of tbe opinion that the arm com
bining these two systems is that best
adapted lor the requirements ot tue service.
The arm appears to the Committee to
surpass, in nearly every particular, the
staudard fixed by tbe War Office adver
tisement, and to be a weapon thoroughly
suitable for all military purposes. In ac
curacy of shooting, flatness of trajectory,
power of penetration, strength of barrel,
salety, simplicity, aud rapidity of manipu
lation, it excels the present service arm.
The recoil appears about tile same as that
of the muzzle-loading Knfield. The cost
of manufacture, with steel barrel and ba
yonet, is estimated at '11 IBs. 6tf.
The competitive trial instituted by the
Committee established the fact that in
the manufacture of breech-loaders, more
attention had been paid to tbe design and
construction of the breech-mechanism than
had been accorded to the shootiurr capa-
bilities of tbe weapon, and that tbe system
of closing the breech by any kind of me
chanism did not affect the accuracy of the
arm, provided a metal cartridge of sufficient
dimensions to contain a suitable chanre
were used. The Committee, therefore,
decided that the question of rifl'og, diam
eter of bore, weight and description of
bullet and charge, should be settled inde
pendently; and iaving pronounced defi
nitely on these points, the selection of a
ureecn-mechanism wouiu oe more easily
made. This course was chiefly prompted
by tbe difficulty experienced in adequately
comparing various systems, when each sys
tem wan probably nreu witn a cartridge
differing in length from those used with
The question of rifling was determined
by competition, and this was confined, to
those systems which bad given the best
results as muzzle-loaders, namely, those of
Henry, Kigby, 'Whitworth, Westley Rich
ards, jMetiord. Lancaster, and the tnliew.
Prom a comparison of the shooting at the
Eeveral ranges, it wo3 found that the Henry
barrels were superior to all the others in
accuracy, excepting at 300 yards, at which
distance the performance of all tbe rifles
was nearly equal, the Knfield showing,
perhaps, a very slight superiority.
The Henry barrel is rifled on the poly
gonal system. A Eection of the barrel
shows a nolvrron of seven sides, and down
each angle formed by the intersection of
the planes, runs a raised rib. If we im
agine a circle described from tbe centre of
the bore with such a radius that the planes
shall form tangents to it, these ribs will
also exactly touch this imaginary circum
ference. Thus, tbe bullet fired from such
a barrel will have fourteen bearing surfaces
or points of contact.
The long list of arms put by for further
examination, was ultimately reduced to
two the Henry and tbe Martini. The
former bad gained the 000 prize in tho
previous trials ; and tbe latter, though
supplied with very defective ammunition,
had borne an excellent character for stead
iness and endurance throughout. A num
ber of the breech-mechanisms on tbe bolt
system were selected for trial with sensi
tive cartridges ; that is to say, with cases
loaded with coal-dust, and fitted with caps
and anvils so arranged that they wonld
explode on very little provocation. These
tests were crucial ones, the whole of the
bolt-guns tried, with the exception of the
Carter and Edwards, and the Kerr, failing
them. The two last-named gnns appeared
to be perfectly safo, but on other grounds
they were put aside. The -Martini and
Henry guns were then put on trial. The
pattern weapons were put through a severe
course of rough usage and exposure, to
gether with a long-continued firing, and

It then remained for the Committee to
decide finally between the two systems.
In arriving at their conclusion, they took
into consideration several points: snch as
safety, cost of manufacture, facility of
manipulation, strength and number of
parts. Having due regard to the respective
claims of the two inventors, the Commit
tee finally decided upon recommending
the Martini gun as a substitute for the
Snyder, at present in nse.
With regard to the rifling of the gun
adopted, it has been demonstrated that
continued firing bad no appreciable effect
on its durability. A gun was found to
hare its accuracy perfectly unimpaired
after firing 3,000 rounds, and the breech
mechanism worked as well at the end of
the firing as it did at the commencement.
After firing 2,100 rounds, the several parts
were tested by gauges, aud were found not
to show any signs of wear. Army and

t rotection- of Repctatiox. One of
tne most odious vices of contemporaneous
society is the light esteem in which it
sometimes a'ppears to hold the jewel re
putation. It is trne that there are never
wanting evidences of its solid value and
acceptance with jnen who are themselves
possessors of the article ; but in general
society it is often very carelessly handled,
and is made to suffer by Buch handling,
without exciting the censure and punish
ment which the wanton destruction of
valuable property usually entails upon the
wrong-doers. Nothing is more common
than for newspapers to bring the gravest
charges of corruption against public men,
uu no Dciuum or never hear or a news
paper which has been convicted and mado
to suffer for defamation of nhfimrtop To
it allowable to suppose that all the publi
cations of this sort with which the public
is familiar are true, or thatthonest men,
uwcu-jjiiig uigu positions inemselves, value
a gooa reputation so little that they per
mit themselves to be libelled with im.
punity, and the rising generation at the
samo time to be taught that virtue is a
matter of so little consequence that its
name is not worth defending? Or do
those who suffer merelv suffer in silennn
because there is no sufficient remedy for
the wroncr thns inflicted ? Either of theaa
conclusions, if true, is sufficiently Iament-
The light regard paid by a lanre portion
of the public press to the sanctities of
private life is, however, merely an index
to the far, greater laxity of observance
which prevails in conversation, letters, ic,
where malice is perhaps les3 often visible
than the mere lack of esteem for, or con
sciousness of tbe value of a good name.
Among younir men. and especially with
regard to women, who form the subject of
meir conversation, mis vice is ionniteiy
too common, and too leniently treated.
The individual injury done when the fair
lame oi eitner man or woman is unjustly
soiled, though almost irreparable in itself,
is, nevertheless, the least of the evil con
sequences which follow. Men will not
laboriously seek after a real good, if it be
uncertain in its tenure, though bubbles
may be thus pursued; and of course tho
human inducement for men and women o
lead virtuous lives Is simply the reputation
of virtue which tbey gain and enjoyamong
their fellows. Take this away, and nothing
remains but considerations which, though
stronger than any other to a Christian, are
utterly unsubstantial and uninfluential
with the greater part of the world's in
habitants. Various proverbs among the
vicious classes show the wide prevalence
of an idea that one might as well be a
rogue in fact as to be thought one, and
that the name of being a thief gives a
man a sort of moral right to steal. These
notions alone prove that the protection of
reputation is not a mere matter of indi
vidual concern, but that it is necessary to
prevent wide-spread demoralization in so
ciety, and tbe multiplication or every
disease which is falsely placed to the ac
count of any of its members.
Louisiana Si'qab. Tho latest advices
we have from Louisiana state that tbe su
gar crop there is promising remarkably
well. Tbe wet weather has done less
damage than was feared, and it is found
that the area planted equals that of some
years previous to tho war, having been
limited only by ability to procure labor.
The high price of the staple warranted
every planter to invest as much as he
could, and fortunately last year's crop left
a good surplus on hand in many parishes.
We have seen no statement that enables
an estimate to bo formed of the net profit
of that crop, or of the probable amount of
this. If the returns ol net profit of a sin
gle plantation, give any cine to the whole,
one in St. Landry would establish an en
couraging summary. With 90 acres in
cane and 80 in corn, the net. profit is said
to have been S25.650. And it is to be no
ted, in furtherance of the idea of a greater
cane crop the current year, that nearly all
of the planters who emigrated to British
Honduras and Uuatemala at tbe close of
the war have returned satisfied that thev
can do better at home than any where else
even if they have to pay for their labor
and obey the Jaws. The certain decrease
in tbe Cuba crop this year must make sugar-planting
more remunerative than usual
in Louisiana, and the prospect is that it
will increase me wealth or that state per
ceptibly and happily. It needs bnt little
to restore Louisiana to a prosperous con
dition. We notice that the same causes
have been and are operating in Teia3, and
that sngar culture is advancing there.
The Brazos and old Caney rivers drain
some of the richest cane lands on the con
tinent, and then tbe Brazos and Glaveston
canal admit inland navigation between
Mauagorda and Glaveston bays, as it mnst
Eoon, tbe crops of sugar to be raised there
will be better than the best in Louisiana-
Enterprise has already set in under the
same motives that started it in Louisiana.
The Cuban trouble which originated, bids
lair to sustain it until it is well rooted,
when, uniting the. cane, beet and maple
sugars, we shall do more towards sweeten
ing our own tea than ever before. North

A Venr Qkeir DotniK Wznnna. An ex
traordinary exemplification of female fickle
ness occurred in our nelirbborinE eountr of
Jones on Saturday last. A couple, tbe gentle
man Deingnamea -.epperana rne laay (,'aroline
Stuttsman, had loved each other long and well,
and were engaged to be married on that day
at tbe fashionable hour of twelve Mr. Lcpper
had procured his license, Invited hU friends
and engaged his officer. But 'alas I "there's
many a slip ' twixt the cup and the lip," es

Saturday Miss Caroline went from her country
home to Anamosa to complete her wedding
outfit; Mr. Lepper went there to meet her;
but not finding her where be anticipated, after
considerable inquiry ho learned beyond a doubt
tnat sue Had taken tne train for Montlcello.
What did this mean? Withhreaklng heart and
reason tottering on its throne the victim of
this cruel treachery waited, hoping against
hope, for the afternoon train. His consolation
-was odd as it may seem, his affianeed'a sister
Betsy. She assured him that Caroline would
he back and marry him ; if she didn't, sooner
than sea him left to droop in bachelor loneli
ness any longer she would marry him herself.
The afternoon train arrived and so did Caro

back up, and held her head up, and turned her
nose up, and refused to be escorted off. Nay,
more ; she declared that her railroad rid was
not ended yet, and she was going where thai
pleased. While the conversation was going

Mr. Lepper rode as far as Viola, wbers he got
off, while the recusant bride went on as far as
Springvllle. Returning to Anamosa, Lepper
looted up Miss Betsy Stuttsman, and informed
her that as his arrangements with Miss Carrie
