Tas MURDERER'S ORDEAL.-One of the old?
est and most utiversal superstitions is the be
r lief that the body of a murdered man will
bleed, if touched by the murderer. It is rare,
however, in these days of trial by jury, to
meet with a case of a bona fide medias val or?
deal. Such was testified to yesterday in the
Court of Sessions, before Judge Moses, in the
ease of Pres ton Johnston. Our readers will find
the particulars in regard to it under the proper
head in this morning's NEWS. The testimony
about the ordeal was altogether from colored
people, and when we consider their prejudices
and their superstitions, and their proneness to
b .'lieve the supernatural, we must confess to
considerable doubt - in regard to the genuine?
ness of the phenomenon; and the jury do not
appear to have been influenced by this part of
COURT INCIDENTS.-Some difficulty in form?
ing a jury waa' 'experienced yesterday by the
counsel for Thomas Dolan. One of the jurors
objected to serve, as ho did not think the pan?
el drawn by the court was a legal jun-. The
Judge had previously oxpli.inod.tho law to this
juror, and shown that by the decision of the
Court of Appeals the juries were legal bodies.
As the juror, however, remained firm in his
convictions, the Judge remarked he would
waive the right of court, and discharged the
juror for conscience sake.
Another juror was objected to because he
was not a registered voter, and on his corrobo?
rating this assertion the objection was sus?
When the panel was exhausted only nine
r jurors were drawn, and the Judge ordered the
names o' thirty additional jurors to be drawn
and summoned to attend the court to-day.
MRS. YELVER TON'S READINGS last night more
than justified all that has been said of that
lady's elocutionary and dramatic powers. She
hos the great advantage of a voice which is
rare n.deed, in its strength, clearness, sweet?
ness and flexibility. Excelsior was decidedly
striking in dramatic effect, and beautiful and
melodious sound; now with a cry like a trum?
pet, now with an agonized wail, and now in a
sad recitative, dying away by gradual descent
into a sound so low that "nothing lived 'twixt
it and silence." But perhaps her greatest
triumph was in her rendering of the terse and
pregnant and thought-compressing Unes of
Locksley Hall, with its romantic picture of a
youthful love, its bitter imprecations upon the
doceitf al object of misplaced affection, its keen
enjoyment of promised revenge in allowing
the imagination to revel : ? the prospec- j
rive miseries of an uncongenial wedlock,
its turning for relief from the peace-con?
suming phantom of despair to the ex?
citements and turmoil of a life of intens
sst action, its passionate longing for a retreat
in tropic and barbarous lands, its gorgeous
description of the scenery and pleasures of
those "summer isles of Eden," its sudden re?
jection of such a resource when the mind re?
verts to the impossibility of giving up the
great blessings of civilization, and its finding
of a worthy and a sufficient solace in devotion
to the glories of modern science. By the voice
and action of the reader, we were made to feel
all the power of the wayward and fran ti J pas?
sion that fills its wierd stanzas, the vigor of
its strange and nervous and startling meta?
phors. The closely-packed significance of the
telling lines was brougnt dearly to our appre?
hension, and we were made to ??el the scope
and spirit of the piece as no other presenta?
tion cf it could have snabled us to do. The
other selections were read in an excessively dra?
matic style of elocution, revealing marked tal?
ent for the boards. The interpretations were
made upon quite original conceptions of the I
author*?? meaning. The intention might some?
times seen? exaggerated to those who but im?
perfectly appreciated the genius of the poem,
but the reader was on the whole watchful and
studious not to 'Veretep the modesty of na?
ture.*' She seemed thoroughly absorbed in
and imbued with the spirit of what she was
reading, and quite self-fdrgetful. The concep?
tion of character was just and discriminating,
and its deline? m exact and truthful. The
articulation aaa distinct, the voice flexible,
melodious, and seemingly capable of adapting
iteelf to the expression of every varied phase
in the whole range of human passions. Each
word received that just intonation which re?
vealed the sense, rom d and full and in a man?
ner most satisfying to the ear and to the taste.
The entertainment was ono of no ordinary suc
oeas. The spacious and comfortable drawing
room of the Mansion House, which hod been
tastefully arranged for the occasion, was filled
to its utmost capacity, and at the close of tho
evening the expressions of delight and appre
1 dation among the audienoe were universal.
We hope that Mrs. Yelverton will read again,
daring her sojourn in Charleston.

months previous to the morder; knew nothii

ard cf th? steamer St. Helena brought ti
news of the murder, and he got a furnitu
cart and brought the body to bis house, ax
notified the coroner; while going for the cor

street. The coroner h9ld the inquest the no:
morning, at 9 o'clock. The witness asked il
coroner if there was any truth m the belli
that in touching a dead body by the murder?
it would bleed. The witness asserted poeitivi
ly that when Preston Johnston was brought 1
the house and toaohed the dead body, it ble
from the mouth and nose profusely. Presto
Johnston was not disposed to touch the bod;
but was compelled to do so, and after the bleec

were very much excited, there being over thu

THE NEW HOSPITAL_The City Engineer
has been engaged daring the pr?sent week in
examining the interior of the workhouse, and
will present his plans to Council, on Tuesday
night, for remodelling the samo. The plan is
considered to be quite feasible, and the city
will soon have a fine hospital in the place of
the present useless building.
6TSALES OF BEAL ESTATE.-Messrs. Leitch &
Bruns sold yesterday, the brick store at the
I corner of King and Clifford streets, measuring
nineteen feet front by one hundred and forty
three feet deep, for $1350, cash. The pur?
chaser assumed a bond and mortgage on the
premises for $2900 in gold.
Also the building lot on the west side of
Middle-street, between Calhoun and Minority
streets, measuring sixty by one hnndred and
two feet deep, with a two-story dwelling and
outbuildings, for $1600. Terms, half cash;
balance in twelve months.
A DELEGATE GOES ASTBAT.-One of the col?
ored delegates from the rural parts, who was
evidently unused to the wiles of the city, fell
among thieves on Thursday night. He was
encountered in the market by a white woman
named Bose Yernar, better known as Railroad,
who requested the loan of ten cents. The
delegate, not having received his per diem, was
unable to accede to this modest request, but
Railroad was "on the make," and watching her
opportunity she bagged his watch, and before
he could comprehend his situation she was
gone. Having heard of the detective office he
hastened thither and narrated his loss. For?
tunately for the moral delegate, Railroad was
a public character, was soon discovered and
the watch regained. It ia both impolitic and
nowise for the members from the "Deestricls"
to wander about unprotected; and the unfortu?
nate sufferer should advise his brethren if they
go astray from the fold to pocket their watches
.ind watch their pockets at the same time, or
they may come to grief.
THE YOUNO MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
have fortunately secured the services of the
Bev. J. A. Broadus, D.D., who will deliver a
discourse before the association on Sunday
and Tuesday nights, at the Citadel Square
Baptist Church. Dr. Broadus is a native of
Virginia, but for years a resident of this State,
and latterly a professor in the Fuman Univer?
sity at Greenville. As a pulpit orator he has
few superiors, and the Citadel Square Church
will scarcely be able to contain the crowds that
i will attend. The association have been earn?
est in their endeavors to promote the growth
of Christianity, and have enlisted the sympa?
thies of the clergy, who will resume their Sun?
day evening lectures. Several distinguished
divines from other actions of the country will
visit the city daring tbe present season, and
have been engaged to deliver public lectures
I for the association.
Dr. Broadna will remain in the city for sev?
eral days, and will be a guest of Mr. T. A.
KEBOSENE OIL AND LAMPS.-There is mncb
inquiry on foot at present in regard to the
danger or inoouousnesB of the several pro?
ducta of the oil wells, manufactured for illu?
minating purposes. . Kerosene, coal oil or pe
trohum, as the product is indifferently called
in different sections of the country, has come
into almost universal usc. It is cheap, and
furnishes an excellent light, and although
there ie a vague impression that its use is not
altogether safe, and although fata', accidents
have occurred again and again, yet every one
' seems to think he or she is safe, because they
behove that with proper care theaccidents
will not occur. We have looked into the mat?
ter somewhat, and gathered the following
Crude petroleum is composed of a variety
of liquids-some are Liquids, some are volatile,
at very low, others at higher temperatures.
By distillation these substances are separated,
and all of them brought into ase. Gasoline,
the most volatile passes off first, and is the
most inflammable and dangerous of these sub?
stances. Naphtha, the next in volatility, pass?
es off after the gasoline. It bas a strong, pe?
culiar odor, is very inflammable, and the more
of it that is allowed to remain, by unprincipled
distillers, or afterwards mixed with good oil,
by nefarious speculators, the more inferior and
objectionable the article for ase in lamps, on
account of its inflammability.
Refined petroleum is that whioh next passes
off, and is of such a nature that, when proper?
ly prepared, will not ignite at a temperature
less than 110 degrees Fahrenheit, whioh is, of
course, much higher than is ever attained in
ordinary lamps. This is tho illuminating oil
so universally used and known as kerosene,
and after proper treatment in the refining pro?
cesses, is as safe for use as sperm or other
oils. The remainder is a heavy oil with other
substances, and usually oaiiod lubricating oiL
The test which at present is almost univer?
sal is an igniting point of 110 degrees Fahren?
heit, obtained by oil being pat into a glass
oap, about three inches wide and three inches
deep, whioh is immersed in a tin vessel filled
with water, ander which is applied an alcohol
lamp, the oil heated at the rate of about 15
minutes from 90 degrees to ono hundred and
ten degrees, or about one degree per minute, I
and when heated faster than that, the lamp is
temporarily withdrawn. Into tbiB oil the bulb
of a thermometer is permanently suspended,
so that the oil will just oover it. The oil is
not stirred nor touched. When the oil has
arrived within some five degrees or ton degrees
of the point desired, the lamp is withdrawn,
and the oil comes up to the desired temper?
ature by the beat of the water of the bath in
which it is immersed, care being taken to fit
the cup containing tho oil tight at the top by
means of a lip. Tf the igniting point obtained
is one hundred ' 1 ten degrees, the flashing
point will ge-Hu?} od found some C degress
or 10 degrees less ; but by rapid heating of the
water, or still more where the flame is applied
direct, that portion of the oil in immediate
contact gets warmer, and the flashing point
can be obtained at almost any point, and even
igniting al; some degrees less.
We thus see that much depends upon the
rehability of the manufacture. If we buy our
kerosene from a regular dealer, of character
and standing, who know3 his business, we may
be reasonably sure that we obtain a good and
safe article. There is a great difference also
in lamps. As a general thing, those with glass
chimneys are deemed least hable to accidents
from explosion. Chimneys, however, have a
great tendency to crack and break, and there
is, in consequence, a great demand for kero?
sene lamps, without these fragile appendages.
In these the burner is usually mouuted by a
brass cap, which soou becomes hot, and thus
creates a current of air sufficient to assist in
the combustion of the surplus oarbon, set free
by the more ready union of the hydrogen of
the oil with the atmospheric oxygon.
No lamp ought ever to bo filled at night.
This should be an absolute rule in all house?
holds. Trim your lamps in the day time and
every day; fill it every morning, keep your
burner olean, and see to it that the wick ia
long enough to communicate with the oil.
Large lamps ought never to be carried about,
or if it cannot be avoided, it would be much
safer to blow out the light beforo moving it,
and then re-light. Mauy fail to take the ne?
cessary precautions from a belief that unless
the light come in actual and visible contact (in
tilling the lamp at night) with tho kerosene
running from the oan, no accident can occur,
But this is a mistake. The flame may be com?
municated from the Light through the gasee
that have evaporated and are in the vicinity of
the can. In the oase of good oil, anoh aa is
now sold by every reliable dealer, some of
these precautions may be unnecessary; but
"an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of
cure." Care and attention in this matter will
be well bestowed.
The following is the law passed by Congress,
March 2,1867, in relation to the adulteration
of kerosene oil.
"SECTIOS 29. And be Hf wilier enacted, That
no person shall mix for sale, naptha and illu?

did, useful, cheap and inimitable J. F. S. M.
This machine is both simple and compact.
It can be worked either by hand or foot, and
can be adapted to any table. Notwithstand?
ing its apparent simplicity, it will do work of
every description noon tho finest muslin or
crape to upon a side of sole-leather. Only one
thread is used, and the size of the stitch can
be regulated by taming a small screw near the
spool. As a family companion, the Johnson
Machine has no equal, and all who wish to keep
their households in order, should visit Mr.
Bayden's store and invest $20 with the agent,

Buffering from thene alarming symptoms to Imme?

I have always recommended the Faber Polygradc
Lead Pencils as the ouly pencils titted for both or?
namental and mathematical drawing; but, altera
thorough trial of the American Polygrade Lead Pen?
cils, manuiaclured by the American Lead Pencil
Company, New York, I hud them superior to any
pencil in use, even to the Faber or the old English
Cumberland Lead Peucil, being a superior pencil for
sketching, ornamental and rn?chantad drawing, and
all thc ordinary uses of a lend pencil.
These pencils are very hnoly graded and have a
very smooth lead; even tho sottest pencils hold the
point weil; tiiey are al! tbat eau bo desired in a pen?
cil. It gives me great pleasure to bc able to assure
Americans that tuey viii no longer be compelled to
depend upon Germany or ?.ny other foreign market
