Tlie Kiector of Hesse.
Every tragedy baa its comic passages, and there
is no tragio event in history but what has some
cornie inoidenta. The present war in Germany ia
truly a grand tragedy now developing beforo man
kind aa the audience, bat tho capture and con
finement, by the Prussians, of tho Elector of
Hesso Cassel as a prisoner of State in the castle
of Stettin, is an Incident so full of comioality that
we aro almost tempted to laugh ovor it.
There are no two monarchs in Europe so much
akin in tomperament and projudice as the King of
Prussia and the Elector of Hesse. They aro both
extremely sensitive of their rights and privileges
as "rulers by the graco of God;" they both des
pise the people and their pretensions to a voice in
their Government; they were both ruling in their
respective countries in opposition to popular sen
timent, and aro both bristling at every poro with
oxalted ideas of their legitimate right to do so,
and thon they arc both very impulsive and rather
gruff in personal intercourse. But, notwithstand
ing these many points of sympathetic attraction
between them,the stronger King,as soon as ho bad
hold of the person of the Elector, shuts bim up in a
castle as he would a revolutionist or "any other
man." This little bit of practical revenge history ia
now paying the Elector is, as we said, amusing. Ho
filled bis own prisons in Hesse Cassel with the
best mon, who dared to plead for their constitu
tional rights. Now, for insisting upon his rights
as a sovereign prince, the same measure ia moted
out to him, and for daring not to do the bidding
of the Prussian King, ho is a priaoner. At Stet
tin he may ruminate over the many vicissitudes
of life that may befall even a despotic Elector of
The National Union Convention.
We copy the following aonaiblo article from the

We publish tho address of the Democratic mem
bers of Congress "to the people of the United
States," endorsing the call for the assembling of a
National Conven'ion at Philadelphia on the 14th
of Auguet. The style and temper of this address
are admirable. It ignores tbe divisions which
have heretofore existed amongst those who are
opposed to the destructive principles and meas
ures of the Radicals, and prepares the way for the
earnest and hearty co-operation of all those who
desire the perpetuation of the Union, and the well
being of the States and of the people of thia great
country. This is in tho true Democratio spirit,
and aa such we accept it, and give oar voice to tho
In order to restore the Southern States to all

out a policy which shall have for ita object the
welfare of the whole people, and the rights of all

spirit of its Original creation? Shall the South be
restored to ber rightful position in this galaxy
of States? And shall the Radicals and Deatruc

THE REPOSTED UPRISING AGAINST SPAIN-Tho
reported landing of two thousand Chileans at
Neuvitas, to aid the Coban insurrectionists, re
ceived by the steamer (Juba, at Baltimore, from
Havana, seems to confirm the statement made by
the Panama Star of July 1st, that most of the
South American republics had entered into a sort
of treaty to divest the Spanish authorities of the
control of Coba. The New York Sun, commenting
ou the news, remarks :
Tho scheme, seems to have been for some time
maturing, and if tho insurrection that ia now re
ported in Cuba I* a part of it, the matter is really
important, particularly BO in view of the fact that
there ie a strong anti-Spanish element in Cuba,
We are inclined to think, however, that the
Spanish power in Cuba is not in present danger.
The insurrection is probably the result of some
local causo, and will doubtless be speedily sup
pressed. So far aa the reported acuerne of tbe
South American rep?blica is concerned, we think
Cuba is strongly fortified. Spain is moro than a
match for all tho Republics of South America
combined, in military and naval strength, and
hence we cannot see any great danger to Spain
from the said movement. Anti-Spanish insurrec
tions may bo stirred up in Cuba, and filibustering
expeditions, like that of Lopez, may attempt to
do something;, bot Spain is likely to keep posses
sion of Cuba, until the time comes when that
Island will be7 "wanted" by the United H tat os.
The New York Post says :
Nows which comes to us from two oonourrent
sources, Panama and Havana, each confirming
the other, appears to us to be highly probable,
from what we have known for months of the
anxious desires of tbe Cubans to find out the
means of taking advantage of Spanish folly and
wrongs in attacking the Sooth American Repub
lics, to emancipate tneir own magnificent island
from the oppressive rale of Spain. A very few
days will bring either tho confirmation or the con
tradiction of tbe reports, whioh we give now for
what they are worth, bat with the feeling that
they are veiy likely to be trae.

THE VETO OF THE SECOND FREEDMEN'S BUREAU
RILL.-The Washington correspondent of the
New York World, under date*of the 10th, says :
Simultaneously with this military establish
ment the present "rural guard" throughoat tho
empire will bo abolished, and the entire country
placed under the regular army protection. Tho
decree for this national army waa issued in No
vember of 1866, and as at that time no fun lu r
action was taken upon tbe matter, tbe general
imnrtssion was that the new establishment was
to be only an army upon paper ; bat the conse
quent manner in whioh the idea has been carried
out shows the order and method of all of Maxi
milian's movements. To have raised this army
beforo the policy of Napoleon was made known
as to the withdrawal of the Frenoh troops, would
have been to incur a useless expense to the em

Tho concluding volume of tho cenBue of 1860,
dovoted to eooial statistics, baa been issued. It
affords the means of many instructive compari
sons, and, among others, of a comparison between
tho numbers of the dangerous and perishing
classes, and their relative proportion to the whole

of tb is Union, as follows :

From this it appears-omitting fractions-that
while there is in Now England a pauper to each
forty and a criminal to each one hundrod and
seventy-four of the population, in the Southern
States enumerated there was only one paupor to
oach four hundred and fifty-one, and one criminal
to each 3421 of the population. It is evident that
the much boasted superiority of New England, on
account of her great moral purity and high intel
ligence, tells better in rhetorical flourishes than
in statistical figures. What a story it tells for the
culture of Massachusetts, with her sublime sys
tem of free schools and her innumerable churches,
that she has 57,880 paupers and 12,773 criminals,
while Alabama, one of the dark corners or the
earth, a field of missionary labor and philanthropic
effort, with two-thirds as large a population, had
only five hundred and eighty-two paupers, and
one hundred and seventy-nine criminals.
The Philadelphia* National Convention.
[From the National Intelligencer of the UtA.]
In many of the Statoe active steps have been
taken to have full and able delegations to the pro
posed National Union Convention at Philadelphia,
August 14. In others there seems to be some
misunderstanding as to the manner in which dele
gates are to be chosen. With a view to give the
proper information, the following circular, ema
nating from the National Union Committee, has
just been issued and sent into all the States and
Territories. The indications are that this Con
vention will be one of the most imposing and im
portant assemblages over held in this country :
[ O IB OD LAB.]
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 10, 1866.-Your imme
diate and earnest attention is invited to the an
nexed oall for a National Convention, issued by
thc National Union Executive Committee, and ac
companying endorsement thereof by prominent
gentlemen who are well known to the country.
The undersigned have been duly appointed a
committee to facilitate and expedite, by corres
pondence and otherwise, suoh action as may seem
necessary to bring together at Philadelphia a con
vention of the ablest mon of the nation, without
rogar? to their party antecedents, who favor, gen
erally, the restoration policy President Johnson
has advocated as against the dangerous course
pursued by tho majority of Congress.
We deem it proper to suggest that it is desirable
that there be sent from each State four delogates
at large, and two from each Congressional district
who favor the principies set forth in the call, to be
taken from the supporters of Lincoln and Johnson
in 1864, and a like number from their opponents.
Also, four from each Territory, and four from the
District of Colombia. In those States whereof a
portion of the people were lately in rebellion, a
corresponding nam ber of delegates may be chosen
by the people generally who accept the principles
stated in the oall. It is not intended, however,
that these suggestions sball interfere with any
arrangements already made for the soleotion of
delegates. It is left entirely to political organiza
tions in the different States and districts that con
cur in the principles of the call to decide whether
they will choose their delegates by joint or sepa
rate meetings, or by their executive committees.
We hayo been authorized to appoint temporary
executive committeos in tbe States where the
same are presumed to be necessary. You are
tberofore requested to act as such committee, and
to adopt imra- diate measures to secure a full
delegation to the proposed Convention, not inter
fering, however, with tho action which existing
organizations may have taken for tho samo ob
ject. Your action will be euch as to aid such
movements-the purpose of your appointment
being to provide for the selection of delogates if
no adequate preliminary arrangements havo yot
The dav fixed for tho National Convention is
near, and wo desire to impress on you and on all
friends of this cause, that it is or the first im
portance that District or State Conventions, or
S ato executive committeos, immediately appoint
delegates And it is particularly requested that
a list or delegates and committees appointed be
speedily forwarded to tho chairman of the com
In conclusion, we havo to add that tho para
mount object of this movement is to bring into a
?reat National Conferonco, from all parts of our
istracted country, wise and patriotic men, who
may devise a plan of political action calculated to
restore national unity, fraternity and harmony,
and secure to an afflicted people that which is so
sincerely desired by all good men, the practical
blessings of an endnringjeace.

AN INTERESTING TRIAL.-The Western Me
tropolis, from New York, for Bremen, put into
Boston to repair damages, hut baa resumed her
voyage. The Boston Keening Commercial says :
It seems the steamer bas patent wheels, the
buckets of which showed signs of breaking off soon
after leaving port, and on meeting with a heavy
sea, it was found impossible to keep them on. No
The wheels are known as "MANLEY'S patent,"
an Amtricau invention, whioh has boen introduced
in France and in several American steamers, with
the best results, hat hts not been fully tested in
ocean service. The arrangement permits the
backets to enter and leave the water vertically,
giving tho most direot application of tho propelling
power, and the wheels act with the same efficiency
whatever tho point of submergence. As thc
Western Metropolis did remarkably welt on her
trial trip, the damage experienced probably arises
moro from a defcot in mechanical construction
than on error in principle.
A FREE-TRADE RADICAL'S WAIL_"The South
is known to bo opposed to the tariff; but Messrs.

pear, of thus scouring tho passage of this atroci

[raoM OUR OW? CORRESPONDENT*]
NEW YORK, July 10_General SHERMAN has
changed his base from tho Metropolitan Hotel, of
this city, and gono to Philadelphia, where, we
learn, ho was greeted with a serenado, in responso
to which compliment'the General made a speech,
in which ho remarked, with moro truth than
poetry of sentiment or ologanco of phraseology,
that it waB as "hot an blazes" in Now York. This
was, after all, a most appropriate expression for
ono who has so much roaeon to bc thoroughly
conversant with tho subject touched upon. No
doubt tbe groat incendiary was thinking of Co
lumbia, and the blazcB that lit up bis march
through Georgia and South Carolina, or, perhaps,
ho has not forgotten how WADE HAMPTON ad
ministered blazes to him in a published state
ment, giving the lio direct to the great Aro wor
shipping military hero.
I am most happy to inform your readers that it
is not aa "hot aa blazes" hero at present-that
the weather baa moderated considerably, and
that Buch of them as may, per land route or
steamor, arrive hero thia week, will not bo com
pelled to undergo the baking process to which wo
who have been here during tho week past have
been subjected. The thermometer has risen aa
high as 98 in the shade, and we havo had nearly
forty cases in one day of sunstroke, from which
death has ensued; but now a cool change has
come over the spirit of the Clerk of the Weather's
dream, and all is well again.
Captain HUDSON, accompanied by a crew con
sisting of eleven men and a dog, set out yester
day on a trans-Atlantic voyage in a lilliputian
ship, twenty-six feet long and three feet wide.
Weather'beaten tars and mon who have followed
for years the deep blue sea entertain tho opinion
that neither the captain nor bis human-canino
crew will ever be soon or heard of more. Should
they reach the other aide of the water in safoty,
the boat will be placed on exhibition at the great
Paris Exposition, and mon and boat will be im
mortalized; if not, then the men alone and not
the boat will bo immortalized in a more literal ac
ceptation of the term.
P. T. BARNUM, the great showman, has hit upon
an idea which he has executed with so great a de
gree of success as will insure for him tho ever
lasting gratitude, esteem and admiration of the
rising generation. All children know the history
of "Jack and Gill;" all have road or heard tho ex
ploits of little "Jack Horne," the young gentle
man who wont into a secluded angle of the room
in order to partake with a greater degree of priv
acy and comfort of the Christmas festivities; all
havo heard of the "Little Hary" who rejoiced in
tho possession of a still smaller lamb with exceed
ingly snowy fleece, with a predilection for literary
pursuits, evinced in the art of following its mis
tress to the school-room in defiance of all law;
but now the childen can seo them all, as we grown
children can see "Hamlet," "Othello," "Lear" or
"Macbeth,"-for in the thrilling drama called "Jack
and GUI," now being performed at BARNUM'S, all
of these characters appear.
On last Saturday the great teronaut, Profes
sor LOWE, made a grand detached balloon ascen

for several hours, and then coming down in Pel

The''omtuon Council seem inclined to root up
and resuscitate the intensely stupid and exceed
ingly mischievous idoa looking to the disfigura
tion of the Fifth Avenue by stripping it of the
beautiful stoops, abade trees and court yards that
front and adorn tho magnificent residencea which
adorn this, the handsomest avenue in the world.
The Common Council have an uncomon desire to
enrich themselves by little swindling operations,
and think it a oapital idea to endeavor to extort
money from tho residents of the Fifth Avenuo by
subjecting them to the bleeding process ; but the
plan does not bid fair to meet with success, unless
the merchant princes bo as poor in brain and
sense as they are rich in dollars.
The cholera is making desperate though fatal
attempts to croate a sensation. Two deaths oc
curred in this city on Sunday last, which havo
been duly reported by the Health Board.
For soveral days past the papers here have
teemed with accounts of tho "East River mystery"
and of the minute investigations that wore on
hand looking towards the elucidating theory. It
appears that the body of a German, SANDER by
name, and a tailor by profession, bad been found
floating in tho Kast River in such a condition as
to give rise to suspicion of foul play. It was at
once supposed to be a case of murder most fool,
bnt turns out now to be a case of suicide, as it
has been ascertained that there is a great proba
bility that the gentleman pat an end to his own
troubles and troublous existence.
The English Opera in New York is no more-it
has collapsed, failed, "gone np," and is among
the things that were. No one oan imagine what
causo could have produced this anexpeoted and
unwished for result, as the opera had, to all ap
pearances, been most liberally patronized. I say
no one can imagine the causo; and here I am in
error-for some do imagine and bint that the capi
talists who invested in music, also risked their
greenbacks in petroleum and other stocks, where

eldest daughter of th? late SIMEON Incus, of Charleston,
S. C.. after a ahort and distressing illness of three deys,
aged 61 years, 6 months sud ten days. She paased from
Death unto Life without a struggle; exemplifying in the
Dark Valley the Faith that had guided her life.
Afflicted from her birth with partial blindness, God,
in His kind Providence, had made up the deficiency by
endowing her with a mind of no common order. Re
ceiving a home education from loving friends, her clear
lutellect and contemplative spirit soon eauaed her to
exoel her instructors. Her memory was remarkable,
and well stored with historio and religious truths.
Whatever was worthless she rejected, and treasured up
A child of sorrow and acquainted with grief, she had
made lt the mission of her life to comfort the afflicted.
Whother the sorrow was of "mind, body or estate," all
went to her, and received lull and ready sympathy-the
bereaved mother, the young widow, tbe sorrowing sis
ter, sll ponred their griefs into her ear, and abe brought
from the treasury of ber loving heart and pious spirit
meet consolation for each woe.
The e.ement of cheerfulness was ono of tho most re
markable traita of her character-her mirth bubbled up
like a pure fountain, and flung its refreshing waters over
all. Her laat words to a loving friend, watching her de
parture, were: "Don't let your heart grow oold." Her's
never did. What a leeson for ut-and for the world.
Ab ! what a void in the family circle baa been made
by her taking off 1 But sho sloops sweetly-not In tho
shadow of old St, Philip's, as she alwaya hoped, by the
grant parents who raised her-vet with kindred dust,
near the brother of her heart, beneath tbe venerable
oaks shading "God's Acre" at Strawberry.
We weep for ourselves, not for her Shs sleeps hm
Jesus; "waiting the general resurrection tn the Last
Day, ?Ld the Ufe of the world to come."
