- c er Who waa ii? the. Confederate service during
our war, and who was on daty at Charleston,
las commmncated to the Prussian Govern?
ment the secret of the construction of the tor?
pedo of American invention, which was found
very serviceable in the defence of Charleston
harbor. . Experiments were lately made at
Siel with tuis particular torpedo, in the.pro6
ence of naval and' military officers designated
"by the government and they were perfectly suc?
cessful, as they blew a vessel, which had been
.prepared for the purpose, ail to pieces. The
officer (Yon Sehe li ha) who communicated the
r?s?ret, has received an appointment on the
? taff of the Prussian service. .
-The loss of the Pacific Mail steamship Her?
mann, with two. hundred lires, has been allu?
ded to in our dispatch ea. Captain Newell states
.?hat when the vessel was about seventy-five
-'miles from Yokohama he discovered breakers
'ahead and ordered the helm "bard a port."
The ship at onoe answered tho movement of
ttfehehn, but'--'was caught by a tremendous
-roller and thrown with great violence upon the
jrocks, striking -first forward and then aft,
when raised by tho following swell. Succes
.?ive seas breaking upon the ship with great
florence fer oed her over the reef, the water fi 11
*'hg the ship, meanwhile, rapidly. Three boats
were lowered and filled with passengers, but
-t he heavy sea soon swamped them al'. About
? midnight one of the funnels fell forward upon
the hurricane deck, causing loss of lifo to a
- luunhsr of people collected there. Before the
chimney fell, tho. foremast had gone. The sea
reaching tho hurricane deck, broke up the.
whole of it forward, but the after portion float?
ed off almost entire, and remained in this way
alongside, and seemed to save forty or fifty
- people. Some of the people were washed off
' some tried to eave themselves on pieces of the
/floating wreck. The boats being mostly life
.'boats, although swamped, still floated, and were
washed into the small bay by the surf, and
those persons who ching to them were saved.
Captain Nowell speaks very highly of the con?
duct of the Japanese on board. When the ship
struck these brave men, suddenly roused from
.-.kep. by the awful crash, seemed to compro
bendtheir eitnation in a moment. No stam?
pede; no disorder. From the first they were
quiet and cool, retaining wonderfully their
presence of mind, and calmly awaiting the
commands of their leader.
-A case of inhumanity occurred in a beauti
ful New England village recently, which it
would seem difficult to parallel. On tho night
of the 4th of March last there was a terrific
snow storm in Vermont. The snow piled in
heaps, the roads were made impassable, and
the Green Mountains were whitened to an enor?
mous depth. Upon the afternoon preceding
such a night, an overseer of the poor in a small
town near Peacham turned a family of paupers,
a widow aged seventy-four years, an unmar?
ried daughter aged thirty-five, a little child
aged eight years, and a lad belonging to the
family, ont upon the high road, and bade them
.begone to some other town, where a relative
had offered them shelter. They plodded along
until overtaken by the storm. At one cottage
at the foot of the mountain they were refused
shelter; at another fort her up they were
-??aAn refused admittance, and in striving
to reach the third and last they all perished,
and when the storm cleared away and tho
roads were broken out their frozen
bodies were discovered. Marks of the struggle
t hey made for life were evident, the lad having
reached within twelve feet of the window of the
last house, and hi? dying cry for help even was
heard but unheeded, the reason being given
ihatit was not recognized as a human voice.
In tue funeral ajruiou that WEB preached ov
thc bc dies of those unhappy paupers thc
facts were rotated, and the indignation is sa
to have been general. But the agony of tb
night eau hardly be couute:balanced by coi
fortable indignation over the victims ol reitei
ted refusal of a little rest and warmth, nor
che shallow excuse that the cottage? where ti
refusal were made are occupied by foreigne
any palliation of tho heartlessness. Poor, ol
weak and forsaken, they froze to death or
New England inouutainskie because New En
land cottages were closed to thom on au ig
when it would have boea inhumanity to ha
repulsed a dog. "Battle hi? bonos over tl

MONDAY MOBNING, APRIL 26, 18C0.
A Plea for the Southern Radicals.
The musical peace festival which is ai
vertised to take place in Boston, Mass.,
July next, would do a noble work if
could establish concord between the warril
Radicals in Congress, and harmonize in
one grand whole the wail of the disaj
pointed place hunter and the Io triumpht
whick welcomes the return to the Hub
the successful candidate for office. Tl
baton which can direct the mingled blea
ing, braying and roaring of hundreds i
sopranos, tenors and basses, should be abl
to control a refractory politician; and tl
gacius which suggested the performance <
"the national air of our country symphc
"nicd by salvos of artillery, discharged b
"electricity at the waive of the acoomulishe
"conceiver of this wonderful spectacle,
ought not to find any difficulty in the way c
husking the great guns of debate,- or a
least of converting their sullen roar into
symbol ol approval of President Grant an
his administration. This would, indeed
be a great national work, entitling the sue
cessful operator to the same reward whiol
is bestowed by the new President on bloat
relations, marital connections and persona
friends, as well as donors of houses, landi
ind richly embroidered boots.
It was not to be expected that thc lion ol
ihode Island would always lie down in
>eace by the lamb of North Carolina, nor
ras it expected that every, senator would
ie satisfied with the division of official
poils. D'Alembert once complained that
a en SQ exhausted their industry in obtain
ng place that they had none left for the
lischarge of their duties. This, however,
s not the case with the. Senate of the Uni
ed States,- at least ip discharging their
luty of obtaining os much profit as possible
or themselves and their friends. Senator
trumbull says that the ante-rooms of the
iepartments are crowded with members of
longress seeking little appointments, whLh
lenator Fessenden calls "a matter of taste,
'not principle." And certain it is that
f the 45,000 offices in the gift, of the Pres
lent, there is not one for which there has
ot been a long list of applicants. Unfor
jnately;there can be but one incumbent for
ach place. For every man made happy a
core are made miserable; and the ways of
he defeated are not those of pleasantness
ubbub increases and the excitement grows
lore intense. An escape valve was necea
ary, .and it has.been found in the long de
ate which took place in the Senate on Wed
eaday, upon a motion made for the prepar?
ion of a report showing the way in which
be Federal offices were distributed among
he several States. (Wi
Thia resolution waa stoutly supported by
ienator Abbott, of North Carolina, who said
hat the distribution of official patronage
ihould be made as nearly aa practicable ac
lording to representation and population,
md that to confine patronage to any par?
ie ul ar portion of the States, or sections,
ither wholly, or partly, was injurious and
injuat. Senator Feasenden admitted that
h?re waa' a p erfec t scramble to see how
aany persons could get into office, and that
be modern principle waa that the office was
aade for the individual and not for the good
f the State. Of course. And who should
now this better than a Radical senator like
be bellicose Abbott. But Senator Feasen
len still thought that experienced and edu
ated men should not be turned out in order
bat ignorant and inexperienced men might
ie appointed in their stead. Senator Ca?a?
ron growled at the way in which the ap?
pointments were made, Senator Wilson fol
owed in the same vein, and Senator Abbott
.gain declared that none of the States ought
o be ignored. This brought up Senator
Sawyer, of South Carolina, whose words
vent straight to the mark. What his views
frere may be summed up thus : The good of
he public aervioe should be considered
irst; but olaims of the reconstructed States
lad not been recognized, and they want a
?ational policy welcoming them back with
?pen arms, so that they might receive eve
?ything in the way of patronage which
hey eau reasonably demand. "Our ene
'mies tell us in the South," said Mr. Saw?
yer, "that we represent nobody, and when
'we come here wc are told the charges
'which the rebels make ure true, namely :
'You represent nobody, and must, there
'fore, expect to be ignored. And it had
.been aaid by persons in high position,
.You must recollect that the white vote in
.your States was a small affair. Had it
'come to thia that any members of the Re
'publioon party which had declared for the
?political equality of all men, without re
'gard to race or previous condition of ser?
vitude, should speak to him in thia man?
ner about the white vote of the South '!
All these States gave a majority of votes
in favor of the administration; and were
they to be told they should have less pat?
ronage that the Democratic State of Ken?
This is plain talking, and it expresses the
leas of the Radical party of South Caro?
na. They want a national policy which
hall give them every office which they can
easonably demand. Thifi is their due, be?
muse they suffered and starved while the
'orthern Radicals lived on the fat of the
md, and because of the little time that is
ift them in whicu to grow rich.
During the war and the earlier periods
: reconstruction, the Radicals of the North
ad Weat had everything their own way.
hey absorbed, as a sponge would do,
tue fatness of the laud and the fullueES
thereof, and it is bu: right that they should
bc squeezed now for the sako of tho South?
ern Radical. Where were the Southern
I Radicals while their Northern brethren
wore fattening abroad or arranging v ?iis
key rings at home ! Where were they ?
Some of them were in jail in their native
New England. Others were hoeing corn
and picking cotton under a Southern sun.
Others were driving wagons in the Federal
service, some few were bomb-proof officers
in the Confederate army-the meanest
devils of them all-and others were shoe?
makers, tailors, blacksmiths, or of no pro?
fession but lying and stealing. . Not ono of
them was an honest and industrious work?
ing man, whose elevation would have hon?
ored his class. They were worthless in
what they. wer?* nominally . doing, and all
that was left them was to take a ehare in
controlling the government-it being un?
derstood that there was no objeotion to
small pay if the perquisites were handsome.
These men suffered horribly. They had no
respect and no consideration at home,
whether that home was North or South.
Thc hand of every man was against them
and their hand was against every man
I behind hie back. Surely, then, they should
"be rewarded, and well rewarded !
And, besides, thc Southern Radical must
make financial hay while shines the official
sun. Under no circumstances but those
which made well-nigh every respectable
man in the South ineligible to hold office,
could he hope to obtain a place. As soon
as the white people of the South again con?
trol their own affairs, the Southern Radi?
cal's chance of obtaining a fat place will be
gone forever. Must he not, then, be re?
morseless in pushing his claims for an effie?,
and unscrupulous in turning his opportu?
nities to a good purpose ? And if it is said
that the Southern Radical represents no?
body, how easy it is to prove the wickedness
of the assertion. Take South Carolina, for
instance. At the Presidential election at
least 1000 white men voted for Grant which,
as there are only about 50,000- qualified
white voters in the State, proves the popu
lari ty of Republicanism and of Radical want
of principle. So the members of Congress
from South Carolina do represent somebody
besides tho colored people, and their con?
stituents ought to enjoy all the sweets of
Indeed, taking into consideration the good
service which the Southern States (as re?
constructed) have done, and are . expected
to do, the Radical party, it would be only
fair that for four years, at least, they
should have all the best offices, and New
England none. The Southern Radical has
suffered and should be rewarded. The
Southern Radical has not many months of J
power, and should bc allowed to make the
most of them. The Southern Radical has
saved New England Radicalism from coming
to grief before its time, and should receive
as a reward all the patronage that New
England ventures to claim. It is hoped,
then, that all the Southern senators will
stand up for their rights and not submit to
bo. bullied by either Massachusetts or Rhode
Island. They must stick to eaoh other and to
