In Chicago, in 1SV0, out cf the 700
S'W whteh occurred, 3G were caused by
lamp exDtoflons. In Baltimore, out of
ITS fires, -5- were from the same cause.
The Fire Marshal of fcw York, in his ;
for 1S70, makes the following rc
pm this subject :
" The ofHe and the nnmberof Gres caused

The Mesber of lives lost by these &re3 vras 17,
aa iacreafe of 70 per cent, from last year, thus
dnwieg that tbe laa of life increased in exact
preperiMa to tbe nomlier of fires. In thU con
oectien. 1 take the liberty of referring to the able
report on "The quality of kerosene oil sold in
tbe Metropolitan district," made by Professor C.
H. Chandler. Chemist, ot tbe Metropolitan Beard
of Heahh. in January. 16C9. 1'fco total number
of samples collected from different dealers in the
city by his orders, and tested by him, was C36.
Of Jiese 21 were safe oils, and 615, or upwards
of 9C per cent of the whole number, dangerous
sod oasafc. In an article on Dangerous Kero
secfe," in the America Chmiisi for October last.
Professor Chandler says: "Liquid gas is the
nest dangerous oil cow in use ; it is simply pure
aaptba or benzine, a few per cent, of whidi led
is kerosene oil makes it unsafe." And yet we
tod in his report that seven samples of kerosene
tested by him " contained from 2 to 90 per ceut.
of beazine. gasoline and naptha." TThat'pnmsb
itcesftissnSiciently severe for the Sends who thus
delberatcly spread death and destruction thro'aji
o! the eommaaity reordering helpless women
ctildren tor a diSrence of fire cents a gallon
Id the east of dacgerros and safe kerosene."
T3jc following, from tbe Chicago Cn
idc, will give some idea of the dangerous
character of tfie fluid known as Gasoline,
which we are sorry to sar has bee.n to it
limited extent introduced here :
Gisouxe Kxplosiox. An explosion of this
inflammable substance occurred in St. Louis on
tbe 8th insL A can. filled with the burning fluid,
was left upon the table, the Etopper having been
removed. It evaporated and filled the room with
the vapor, and when the ssrvani girl opened the
kitchen door, holding in her hand a lighted can
dle, tbe gas took fire and exploded with a loud
report, setting fire to the girl'a clothing, and
barning her so terribly that Ehe died in two
foetus utter the accident."
It is to be observed that a fearful num
ber of lives are lost from these burning
fflni'd oxplflsions in comparison to those
lost in other fires. In Brooklyn, last year,
twenty persons lost their lives from this
cause, there being during the year, thirty
one kerosene explosions so called, but
which probably included all the varieties
of fluids of this class.
"We close our extracts from the various
reports and papers, by tnving the remarks
on the subject, of the Fire Marshal of
Philadelphia, in his report for 1870:
"Explosions ol adulterated kerosene, and reck
lessness in the use ot uenzinc, naptna, anu gas
oline, and the fabrication from these hazardous
products of petroleum, by mercenary and unscru
pulous speculators, of numerous Taney burning
fluids, some of which are as explosive as gunpow
der, and palming them off upon unsuspecting
tradesmen and housekeepers as the cheapest and
safest illuminators thereby introducing into
stores, shops and factories of merchants and me
chanics, and the households of innocent people,
dreadful agents of business hazards and domestic
calamities. I'nblic safety and humanity alike de
mand the passage of rigid legal enactments, and
the appointment of upright and reliable executive
officers to enforce them, against the making and
vending of all impure and perilous articles for
"With these examples before them, peo
ple should redouble their care in the use
of these dangerous articles. There is com
paratively little danger in the best qual
ities of korosene, although the most care
fully and honestly prepared oil requires in
its use, constant care. A few simple ob
servances in the care of kerosene lamps
will go far to insure safety in their use;
among which we will mention that a light
should never be blown out, but should be
turned down until the light is extingushed.
A kerosene lamp should never be carried
about in the hand, lighted; the larup
should not be allowed to burn until the
oil is nearly exhausted, and, above all,
should never be filled while Amrning.
The Civil Service itefbriii.
AVc give our readers some short ex
tracts from an article in the last number
of the AT A. Jtevieic, entitled "Civil
Service lleform." The article is written
by Hon. Jacob D. Cox, formerly Secre
tary of Interior, he having been called
to that office by General Grant upon his
advent to the Presidency.
He came into the Cabinet imbued with
the opinion that the Civil Service needed
reforming, and that as an honest officer
and true patriot, ho was bound to carry
on the public work in the most efficient as
well as the most economical way. He
sot himself, therefore, to the correcting of
abuses, which were so flagrant as to pre
clude all hope of improvement of the
service, with the determination to make
but few removals from office. The same
party elected him that had elected lib
predecessor, and most, if not all, those in
office claimed to be good Republicans.
But 20,000 hungry applicants at Wash
ington on the 4th of March, reinforced
by the thousands during the first weeks
of the Administration, created such a
pressure that when the few removals
deemed politic and necessary had been
made, it was found impossible to stop the
current. The party leaders demanded
changes, not so much for reason of polit
ical heresy of those in office as from the
urgent clamors of their needy followers,
and as the Democrats were not in power,
it was a case of one wing of the Repub
lican party devouring the other.
Secretary Cox attempted reform in his
Department by taking appointments into
his own hands; by instituting methods
for determining the competency and char
acter of the applicants; and by refusing
to accept the dictation on Congressmen or
others. He was making thorough work,
but the reformer was ahead of the times,
and tho result was, that he was called
upon to desist, or rctiro from the Cabinet.
He chose the latter alternative.
The article therefore may be considered
as authoritative in its facts, and as exhib
iting, from an interior stand-point, the
abuses and mischiefs that have crept into
the administration of public affairs in the
U. S. from the adoption of tho party doctri
ne, " to the victor belongs the spoils." So
long'as the nation was rich and prosperous,
this corruption and mismanagement did
not attract public attention, but the load
of a war debt, with its necessity of heavy
taxation, brings to light the enormous
cost to the nation of its civil service, as it
has, been managed in the past. Mr.
Jcnckcs, in the House, and Mr. Schurz,
in the Senate, have taken up this reform
in earnest, and have introduced bills to
do away with the abuses.
It is probable that tho Reform -will
come into prominence in the next Presi
dential canvass, for the press, as well as
many public men, are declaring them
selves favorable to its immediate consider
ation. The article will amply repay pe
rusal, but our space will permit of only
brief extracts relating to one or two of
the points discussed :
" The mischiefs and abuses in the present sys
tem have becomo gradually known, until at length
it seems to be almost universally recognized that
our civil service, as it exists, is little better
than a nuisance that must be thoroughly re
formed, unless we are to admit that Republican
government is a failure in the ordinary business
administration .'of, public affairs.!?, ,
" Oa the'jidvent of every adminbtratjon, the
capital swarms with crowds of officoeekers,
applying for every imaginable place, from a di
plomatic position at a foreign court, to a mesenger.
ship in a department at home. They come armed
with recommendations and credentials which ex
perience has proven to be worthless as evidences
of character or capacity, but which certify on
vheir face, that the bearer is one of the most ca
pable and deserving of men whose labors in the
election of the in-coming President were of the
most signal and decisive value.
"The President's balls and ante-rooms are
thronged by the applicants, the more fortunate
or importunate pressing their Senator or Repre
sentative into the service, to introduce them and
stand sponsors for their merits and claims. The
facility with which written recommendations are
procured, leads to duplicity on tbe part of the
persons giving Idem, anu it is no uncommon
thinir for one who has written n high eulogium
upon the character and acquirements of a place
hunter, to write a private note begging that his
formal indorsement may not be regarded as of
any weight, or to seek a private interview, in
which he will state -that tbe person is quite
the reverse of tbe picturo drawn of him in the
" Tbe President and hi3 Secretaries mnst re
ceive the endless tide of applicants, listening to
the praises spoken by an official friend, with,
perhaps, a note from the same official in the
drawer of tne table at wnicn tuer sit, contrauici
ine everv word of the high panegyric so glibly
poured into their ears, and with a feeling of
wearied disgust at the necessity of receiving
with equal serenity the hypocritical praises and
lurtive denial ot them Irom tne same lips. .Mr.
Lincoln's grim joke about deciding between ap
plicants by the avoirdupois weight of their
recommendations, was, like, many of his jokes, a
most keen satiro upon the ntter worthlesiiiess of
this mode ot determining a mans Illness lor
public office Yet when once it is regjrded
settled that official positions are to be distributed
anew by every administration among "it? friends,"
there is little better ttial can be done.
" Despair of reaching satisfactory results, be
gets carelessness and haste in disposing of what
is unpleasant business at best; and tbe time
when it can be announced that all vacancies are
filled, is looked forward to as a comparatively
bliuful future, in which the real business of the
country may receive thought and attention. That
time, however, does not come. No sooner is a
man in place, than bis rivals or enemies are on
his track, ready to prove that he was tbe most
unfit person that could be chosen, and that the
party will be utterly demoralized it ho is not to-
stantly removed and his place given to another.
II a month or two were all that is wasted in this
employment, it would be bad enough ; but the
truth is, that by Tar the larger part of the tune
of the President, and nil the members of his
Cabinet, is occupied by this worse than useless
drudgery, during the whole term of his office.
and it forms literally and absolutely the sta
ple of their work. It is, therefore, no figure of
speech to say that the administering the Govern
ment means the distribution and re-distribution
of its offices, and that its diplomacy, finance.
military, naval and internal administration are
the minor affairs which the settledpolicy of the
country has relegated to such odds and ends of
time as may be snatche'J from tbe greater cares
"Members of Congress do not escape from
similar burdens. Their tables are piled with
letters of applicants. At the beck of some local
politician, whose influence at homo must be
courted or feared, they leave their seats in the
Senate or House, and visit the White Ilonse, or
oneTjf the Departments, to introduce their im
portunate neighbor, and say everything in bis
behalf which the utmost straining of conscience
" Suppose a President to have determined to
use his patronage to enforce a policy, or to secure
a re-election, the bargaining for appointments
becomes at once a systematic bribery, scarcely
more disguised than the system ef corruption
introduced into the Knglish Parliament under
the vt alpole .Ministry." " When the
I resident determines to Ufo the patronago at
his disposal for personal or party purposes, it
results, practically, in farming it out to Members
of Congress. He may retain the right to favor
special personal friends and retainers, hero or
therp, or allow hl3 Cabinet officers to do tho
same br theirs, but his will amount to but a
drop in the bucket. The influences most nseful
and most formidable to the Kxrcutire are in
The result of the system is summed up
in the following passage :
"A corrupting distribution of patronage is
the natural and almost inevitable result of tho
common purpose of office-holders to preserve
their places : and it we once admit that a 1 resi
dent may use his appointing power as a party
machine, or to lnlluence bis own re-election, an
inexorable logic carries us to tbe conclusion that
it is admissible and proper for a Congressman to
use his share of the patronage in the same way.
and to perpetuate his power by the ostracism of
every independent and sell respecting man in his
district, whilst the whole favor and influence of
the Government is given to the circle of obse
quious followers, who are prompt to wheel or
face, when they receive tho order from their
commander. Out of the common purpose to
keep themselves in power, which rules the pro
fessional politicans, has grown the custom of
levying assessments upon oUice-hoiders ot all
giades. "1 he party, ' in the main, has como to
mean nothing but the organized company of
" The remedy is to be found in the adoption
of this principle in brief: Admission to the Civil
Service only upon the results of a compctitve
examination, open to all ; and dismission only
npon ascertained failure of capacity or character.
" It was at a meeting at Klgin, in Scotland, in
September last, that Mr. Lone, tho Chancellor
of Exchequer, was able proudly to say : ' We
have thrown open the whole public service, not
to the privileged classes, but to the people at
large to those who possess industry and ability
among tbe lowest classes just as well as amorg
tho highest. I think the greatest benefit of this
measure is, that we have withdrawn patronace
from the dominion of party and have given it to
the people.' It will be a proud day for the
American people when one of its statesmen can
truthfully take up these words and declare, ' We,
too, havo withdrawn patronage from the doninion
of party, and have given it to tho people.' "
The Clisiritablc l-'siir.
On Monday evening next, at the resi
dence of Madame Ballieu, a charitable
Pair will be held for the benefit of those
who have suffered by the late war in
Prance. In the Departments of France
which have been overrun by the invading
armies the utmost destitution prevails, and
thousands upon thousands of the poor in
habitants are suffering from want. In
England and the United States, every
thing is being done to relieve these poor
sufferers, and ship-loads of provisions and
other necessaries are being forwarded
from the ports of both countries. We
read in the papers, of one man, Mr. A. T.
Stewart of New York, sending 4,000 bar
rels ot flour, and of other private individ
uals, societies and communities, contribut
ing munificently to the relief of the suf
ferers. Wc sincerely hope that the peo
ple of Honolulu will, in this instance, sus
tain the reputation they have earned of
being always ready to administer relief
to the distressed, by rendering such sub
stantial aid to Madame Ballieu as will en
able her to send to her distressed conntry
people the assistance which her efforts in
their behalf deserve. Ye understand that
the Committee will meet at Madame Bal
lieu's on Thursday (to-morrow) evening.
It is possible they may decide to'dTspose
of the goods by sale at the tables and by
auction and lottery.
