THE FORIGoN XSRV IC.
1We are in receipt of an able and elab
orate Report from Senator Patterson of
New HIampshire, of the Joint Select
Committee of Retrenchment, urging a;
reform in the Foreign Service System of
the ( nited States. giving it unity, con
sistency and efficiency. It is assumed
that the country suffers from the lack of
assential qualifications in its consular
and diplomatic agents, who are appoint
ed in recognition of and reward for po.
litical services, rather than from their
qualifications for the positions they are
appointed to. Not one-tenth of the ap
pointees are conversant with the
resources, laws, geography. political
economy. or even language of the coun
tries to which they are sent, and the
frequent changes in the home adminis
tration renders It almost a certainty
that by the time the officer acquires the
information on these points requisite to
usefulness, he will be succeeded by some
one as ignorant and inneficient as was
he at first. Under the present system
no improvement can be expected in this
direction. The Committee therefore re
commend a graded system, based upon
competitive examination in such branch
es of knowledge as are e=.+ential to his
tusefulness as diplomat or consul, and
make them in that respect analagous to
the naval and military services. believ
ing the objects to bl- attained by this
are of superior Importance, to retaining
'hese positions for indiscriminate politi
cal preferments. It is held the foreign
service of our government is adminis'
tered by persons of inferior qualifica
tions for those duties, to those of any
other of the leading nations, and that
our commercial interests sufflr greatly
from almost criminal ignorance of duty.
The Rep.rt gives the proposed system
n detail, and commends itself to favor.
The Consular force of the United States
is about 700; the diplomatic. 70. The
average annual trade of the United
States, and the cost of ..ur foreign Dip
'omatic and C'onsular establishments
with the principal countries is shown in

ED. POST :-A sad accident occurred
on the afternoon of the 9th inst., in the
shaft of the " Brick Pomeroy." Mr. A.
J. Ney. one of the discoverors of this
new and famous lead. was preparing a
blast, and while tamping the hole, the
iron rod used for that purpose was
struck upon the hard rock, causing fire
and discharging the blast in his face,
burning his arms, hands, forehead and
eyes in a horrible mannvr. There was
a foot of powder in the hole and it seems
a wonder that he was not instantly
killed. As soon as the news came, as
sistance was dispatched to him, but the
hands had succeeded in getting him out
and he was able to walk to the cabins,
and soon afterwards conveyed on a sled
to his family. Dr. Leavitt being ab.
sent at Salmon River, a messenger was
despatched after Dr. Daems, of Virginia.
Frnends did all they could to alleviate
his suffering till the followidg night,
when Dr. D. arrived. The Dr. says that
he will soon be up again, but will prob.
ably loose one eye.
Mr. Ney is a brother- in-law of (Jov.
Gileason. of Florida, has an excellent
wife and two interesting children. The
whole community sympathize with
them, but we all have reason to rejoice
that matters are no worse.
