Tile Kirr tor of Heese.
Every tragedy baa its comic passages, and there
is no tragio evont in history bat what has somo
comio incidents. The present war in Germany is
truly a grand tragedy now developing before man
kind as the audience, bat tho capture and oou
?noment, by the Preissiana, of the Elector of
Hesso Cassel as a prisoner of State in the castlo
of Stettin, is an Incident so full of comicality that
we are almost tempted to laugh over it.
There are no two monarchs in Europe so muoh
akin in temperament 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 grace of God;" they both des
pise the people and their pretensions to a voice in
their Government; tbey were both ruling in their
respective countries in opposition to popular sen
timent, and aro both bristling at every pore with
exalted ideas of their legitimate right to do so,
and then they arc both very impulsivo and rather
gruff in personal intercourse. But, notwithstand
ing those many points of sympathetic attraction
botween them,the stronger King, as soon as he bad
hold of the person of the Elector, shuts him ap io a
castle as he would a revolutionist or "any other
man." This little bit of practical revenge history is
now paying the Elector is, as we said, amusing. He
filled bis own prisons in Hesse Cassel with the
best men, who dared to plead for their constitu
tional rights. Now, for insisting upon bis rights
as a sovereign prince, the same measure ia meted
out to him, and for daring not to do the bidding
of the Prussian King, he is a prisoner. At Stet
tin he may ruminate over the many vicissitudes
of life that may befall even a despotic Elector of
Tile National Union Convention.
We copy the following sensible article from the
New York News, on the proposed August National
Wo publish the address of the Democratic mem
bers of Congress "to tbe people of the United
States," endorsing the call for the assembling of a
National Convention at Philadelphia on the 14th
of August. 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 peoplo of this great

THE REPORTED UPBISIMO AGAINST SPAIN.-The
reported landing of two thousand Ohileans at
Neuvitas, to aid the Cuban insurrectionists, re
ceived by the steamer Ovba, at Baltimore, from
Havana, seems to confirm the statement made by
tho Panama Star of July 1st, that moat of the
South American republics had entered into a sort
of treaty to divest the Spanish authorities of the
control of Cuba. The New York Sun, commenting
ou the news, remarks :
The scheme seems to have been for some time
maturing, and if tho insurrection that ls now re
ported in Cuba is a part of it, the matter is really
Important, particularly BO io view of the fact that
there is a stroig 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 as the reported son?me of the
South American republics is concerned, we think
Cuba is strongly fortified. Spain is more than a
match for all the Republics of South Amerioa
combined, in military and naval strength, and
hence we cannot see any groat danger to Spain
from tbe said movement. Anti-Spanish insurrec
tions may bo stirred up ia Cuba, and filibustering
expeditions, like that of Lopez, may attempt to
do something;, but Spain ie likely to keep posses
sion of Cubii. until the time comes when that
leland will be "wanted" by the United States.
The New York Post says :
News which comes to us from two concurrent
sources, Panama and Havana, each confirming
the other, appears to os to be highly probable,
from what we have known for months of the
anxious desires of the Cabans to find ont 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 mle of Spain. A very few
days will bring either the confirmation or the con
tradiction of tbe reports, whioh we give now for
what they are worth, bat with the feoling that
thoy are vet y likely to be trae.
TOE VETO OF THE SECOND FREEDMEN'S BUREAU
BILL.-The Washington correspondent of the
New York World, under date*of the lOtb, says :
Simultaneously with this military establish
ment the present "rural guard" throughout the
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 1865, and as at that time no further
action was takon npon the matter, the general
imnrteeion was that the new establishment was
to bo only an army upon paper ; but the conse
quent manner in which the idea bas been carried
out shows the order and method of all of Maxi
milian's movements. To have raised this army
before the policy of Napoleon was made known |
as to tho withdrawal of the Frenoh troops, wt.aid

Tho concluding volume of the census of I860,

affords the means of many instructive compari

tho numbers of the dangerous and perishing
classes, and their relative proportion to tho whole
people in two distinct and widely-apart sections
of this Union, as follows :

forty and a criminal to each one hundred and
seventy-four of the population, in the Southern
States onumerated there was only ono paupor to
oach fonr hundred and fifty-one, and one criminal
to each 3421 of tho population. It is evident that
the muoh boasted superiority of New England, on
account of her great moral purity and high intel
ligence, tells bettor in rhetorical flourishes than
in statistical figures. What a story it tells for the
culture of Massachusetts, with her sublimo sys
tem of free schools and her innnmerable churches,
that she has 57,880 paupers and 12,773 criminals,
while Alabama, one of the dark corners of the
oarth, a field of missionary labor and philanthropic
effort, with two-thirds aa 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 1HA.]
In many of the States activo 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 tho most imposing and im
portant assemblages over held in this country :
[om ero LAB.]
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 10, 1866_Your imme
diate and earnest attention is invited to tho an
nexed call for a National Convention, issued by
tho National Union Executive Committee, and ac
companying endorsement thereof by prominent
gentlemen who are well known to the country.
The undersigned havo been duly appointed a
committee to facilitate and expedito, by corres
pondence and otherwise, such action as may seem
necessary to bring together at Philadelphia a con
vention of the ablest men of the nation, without
rogard to their party antecedents, who favor, gen
erally, the restoration policy President Johnson
has advocated as against tho dangerous courao
pursued by tho majority of Congress.
We deem lt proper to suggest that it is desirable
that there be sent from each State four delegates
at large, and two from eaoh Congressional district
who favor the principles Bet forth in the oall, to be 1
taken from the supporters of Lincoln and Johnson
in 1864, and a Uko number from their opponents.
Also, fonr from each Territory, and four from the 1
District of Columbia. In those States whereof a '
portion of the people were lately in rebellion, a
corresponding number of delegates may be chosen
hy the people generally who accept the principles
stated in the oall. It is not intended, however, 1
that these suggestions shall interfere with any
arrangements already made for the selection of
delegates. It is left entirely to political organiza
tions in the different Rt at es and districts that con
cur in the principles of the call to decido whether
they will choose their delegates by joint or sepa
rate meetings, or by their execntive committees.
We have been authorized to appoint temporary
executive committees in tho StateB where the
same are presumed to be necessary. You aro
therefore requested toaot as such committee, and
to adopt imm -di?te 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 lo aid such
movements-tho purpose of your appointment
being to provide for the selection of delegates if
no adequate preliminary arrangements have yet
The day fixed for the National Convention ie
near, aud wo desire to impress on you and on all
friends of this cause, that it is of the first im
portance that District or Stato Conventions, or
S ate executive committeos, immediately appoint
delegates And it is particularly requested that
a list of delegates and committees appointed bo
speedily forwarded to the chairman of the com
In conclusion, wo have to add that tho para
mount object of this movement is to bring into a
?reat National Conference, 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 BO
sincerely desired by all good mon, the practical
blessings of an enduring ?eace.

AN INTERESTING TRIAL.-Tho Western Me
tropolis, from New York, for Bremen, put into
Boston to repair damages, but baa resumed her
voyage. The Boston Evening Commercial says :
lt seems the steamer bas patent wheels, the
buckets of which showed signs of breaking off soon
after leaving port, and on meetiug with a heavy
sea, it wa? found impossible to keep them on. No
Tho wheels are known aa "MANLEY'S patent,"
an American invention, which has boen introduced
in France and in several American steamers, with
tho best results, but has not boen fully tested in
ocean service. The arrangement permits the
buckets to enter and leave the water vertically,
giving the most direot application of tho propelling
power, and the wheels act with the same efficiency
whatever the point of submergence. As the
Western Metropolis did remarkably well on her
trial trip, the damage experienced probably arises
moro from a defect in mechanical construction
than on error in principle.

NEW YOBS, July 10-General FnFUMAN has
ohanged hia baso from tho Metropolitan Hotel, of
this oity, and gono to Philadelphia, where, we
learn, he was greeted with a serenade, in response
to which compliment* the Genoral mado a speech,
in wbioh he remarked, with moro truth than
poetry of sentiment or ologanco of phraseology,
that it was as "hot as blaze?" in New York. This
was, after all, a most appropriate expression for
one who baB so much reason to bc thoroughly
conversant with tho subjoct touched upon. No
doubt thc great incendiary was thinking of Co
lumbia, and the blazes that lit up his 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 tho lie direct to tho great Uro wor
shipping military hero.
I am most happy to inform your readers that it
is not as "hot as blazes" here at present-that
the weathor bas moderated considerably, and
that such of them as may, per land route or
steamer, arrive hero this week, will not bo com
pelled to undergo the baking process to wbioh we
who have been here during the week past have
been subjected. Tho thermometer has risen as
high as 98 in the shade, and we havo had noarly
forty caseB in ono day of sunstroke, from which
death has ensued; but now a cool change has
come over the spirit of tho Clerk of thc Weather's
dream, and all is well again.
Captain HODSON, 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 throe feet wide.
Weather -beaten tars and men who have followed
for years the deep blue sea entertain the opinion
that neither tho captain nor bis human-canino
crew will ever be seen or heard of more. Should
they reach the other side of the water in safoty,
the boat will be placed on exhibition at the great
Paris Exposition, and men and boat will bo 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 ho has executed with BO great a de
gree of success as will insure for him the ever
lasting gratitude, esteem and admiration of the
rising generation. All children know the history
of "Jack and Gill;" all have read or heard the ex
ploits of little "Jack Horne," the young gentle
man who went into a seoludod angle of the room
in order to partake with a greater degree of priv
acy and comfort of the Christmas festivities; all
have heard of the "Little Hary" who rejoiced in
the possession of a still smallor lamb with exceed
ingly snowy fleece, with a predilection for literary
pursuits, evinoed in the art of following its mis
tress to the sohool-room in defiance of all law;
but now the childen can see them all, as we grown
children can seo "Hamlet," "Othello," "Loar" or
"Macbeth,"-for in the thrilling drama called"Jack
and QUI," now being performed at BARNUM'S, all
of these characters appear.

The Common Council have an uncomon desire to

Hinkley, on the 7th of July, 1866, CATHERINE TUKUM,
eldest daughter of Ute late SIMEON IHEUS, of Charleston,
S. C.. after a short and distressing lllnesa of throe day*,
aged 61 years, 6 months and ten day*. She passed from
Death unto Life without a struggle; exemplifying in the
Dark Valley tim Faith that had guided her Ufo.
Afflicted from her birth with partial blindness, God,
in His kind Providence, bad made up the defloiency by
endowing her with a mind of no common order. Re
ceiving a home education from loving friends, her clear
Intellect and contemplativo spirit soon caused her to
exoel her instructors. Her memory was remarkable,
and well stored with historio and religion* truths.
Whatever was worthless she rejected, and treasured np
A child of sorrow and acquainted with grief, she had
made lt the mission of ber life to comfort the afflicted.
Whether the sorrow was of "mind, body or estate," all
wont to her, and received loll and ready sympathy-the
bereaved mother, the young widow, the sorrowing sis
ter, all poured their grief* Into her ear, and she brought
from the treasury of her loving heart and pion* spirit
meet consolation for each woe.
The e.ement of cheerfulness was one of the most re
markable trait* of her character-ber mirth bubbled up
like a pure fountain, and flung Hs refreshing waters over
all. Her last word* to a loving friend, watching her de
parture, were: "Don't let your heart grow cold. " Her's
never did. What a leaton tor ut-and for the world.
Ah ! what a void In the family circle baa been made
by her taking off! But she sleeps sweetly-not lc the
shadow of old St. Philip's, aa she always hoped, by the
grandparents who raised her-yet with kindred dust,
near the brother of her heart, beneath the venerable
oaks shading "God's Acre" at Strawberry.
We weep for ourselves, not for her She sleep* In
Jeans; "waiting the general resurrection In the Last
Day, and the life of the world to ooma."
