-A terrible tragedy occurred in Philadel?
phia, on Tuesday morning, near the scene of j
the rwitcheii murder. The family of Mr.
Thomas L. Brans assembled at breakfast at
the usual boor, and during the progiessof ?
the meal the airange behavior ot a son, named
Marshall Evans, waa freely disouesed. It had
been determined that the fat bet, after bre k
fast, should visit the family physician, Dr. Vao
Dyks, m order to pr.oure a certibeatb of the
son's mental condition, on which he could bo
rem rod to an insane asy.um. Jost as the
conversation was conclu Jed Marsh ill came
into the breakfast-room and look bis scat at
the table. Hui fatbet bide bim good mon.io?
but he made no reply to this salutation. and it
was uspeoted by ali present that be bad over?
heard the conversation. He ate heartily, and
While be was thus engaged his father left the
room to change hi? dressing-gown for a coat,
and procuring his hat, Mr. Evans started
down the front stairway. On his father reach
ing the hall landing, Marshall walked toward
the front door, drew a revolver and shot at his
father three times in rapid succession. Mr.
Evans retreated through the parlors and fell
near the dining room. His soo followed, and
aa the body was lying on the floor he bent over
it, bot said nothing, and when the police en?
tered the last words of the dying man were:
"Don't harm my boy, for he didn't know what
he was doing." Young Evans is twenty-six
years old, has been afflicted with rheumatism
for many years, ana has recently behaved in a
violent manner to bia wife and members of
his own family. He was, without doubt, in?
sane, for he has been, until a few weeks, a
good son and an affectionate husband._
MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3'\ 1869.
Tbe News Price Carrent.
On Wednesday next, September 1, we
will publish TBS NIWB Price Current, con?
taining our usual full and ace orate review
of the markets for the commercial year
closing on the Slst instant. Orders for ex?
tra copies, with or without cards, must be
left at THB NBWS offioe by Tuesday evening.
The Committee of the Chamber of Com?
merce, to whom was referred the subject of
examining the Beach or Sullivan's Island
Channel, report that the greater part of the
channel shows a mean low water depth of
over thirteen feet, and thai with some little
dredging this channel can easily be made
the safest and shortest entrance and outlet
to the port of Charleston. The committee
recommend that application be made to the
Treasury Department to hare a surrey
made, and an estimate taken of the expense
of dredging the chancel and of removing the
wrecks which Us in it, so that Congress may
be memoralfced for an appropriation to
oover the whole expense. Suoh a memorial,
supported as it would be by the whole
Stats, would doubtless be successful, but, as
the memorial cannot be presented until lht
oost of the work to bc dene is ascertained,
it seems to us that it would be bettor to ap?
ply to City Council to hare the necessary
surreys made at onos, at the expense of the
oity. Bed tape in the departments would
cause a long delay? and Congress might
hare adjourned before tbs survey was oom
ploted. If, however, the work be put in
hand at once by the city, we shall within
a short lime know what it will cost
to obtain and maintain a depth cf
twenty feet at high water in the Beach
Channel. And, in this connec tion, it
has suggested itself to us that it - will
not be well to oonfiue (he survey to one
channel only. The greatest depth of water
expected to be obtained in the Beach Chan
snel is about twenty feet. This must do, if
ws oanuot do batter; but it seems to us that
the Mah* Ship Channel, also, should be
carefully surveyed for the purpose of as?
certaining whether we cannot hare at that
point as much as twenty five feet of water.
At the same time, detailed information
might be obtained from Europe oenoerning
i Jahip^aSjaSjitllill'iiil'Jti A tftft? ports, a
work to which deepening our channel to
twenty five feet would be a bagatelle. In
this way we should be dealing with hard
facts, and should hare before us the record?
of what others have done under oiroum
stances more embarrassing than our own
We hare not been able, so far, to giv* Un?
important subjeot all the attention it merit s
but, it appears to us, the wisest oourse is to
begin the survey without delay, to have
both the Main Ship Channel and the Beach
Channel surveyed, and to obtain from Eu
rope all the information in regard to similar
undertakings which is in any way acc?s
Bible. The expense will not be great, and
if we venture nothing we cannot win the
high pries in the mighty game of commerce
A lew Material tar Paper.
80me very interesting experiments bare
been in progress at the Ciokassabogue Pa?
per Mills, near Mobile, as we learn from
the Mobile B-giB'er, under the direot eu
perriaion of Dr. J B Heed, of Tusoalooss,
well known as the inven.er of the Reed
Shell wbioh has rendered the Parrott gun
so effective an engine of destruotion in war
fare. 8 ever al years since, when the oost
and soaroity of rags rendered it important
to dieoover some material wbioh might be
substituted in whole or in part (or rags
was the subject of much thought and inves?
tigation, the idea occurred to this gentle?
man that the okra plant, belonging to tbs
family of the eotton plant, and containing
a good deal of excellent fibre, might be ad?
vantageously used in the manufacture of
paper. With him, to think was to act, and
he at once commenoed a series of experi?
ments with a view to subj ?ot the theory to
a praotioal test Obtaining a small boiler,
eapable of bearing a considerable steam
pressure, and gathering a few Btalks as they
were left in his garden, he c mmenoed his
work with the patience, labor and perse?
verance which seem to belong in a high de?
gree to inventors, and are essential to their
The experiments thus far made demon?
strated tho tact that gocd brown pap*'
could be made of okra; but. it. remained to
ehow that this material oou'd be bleaobed
to sufficient whiteness to moko it available
for priming or book, papers, and if so, at
what cost in comparison with rag or other
material To decide by aotutl test, tnis
important question was tbs object of the
investigation at the CbickasBabogue Mills
to which we have referred. The experi?
ments were oonoluded, and the result is
. rn men 11> gratifying to those engaged in
tnem, and is of particular interest to the
press, dealers in and manufacturers of
paper generally, and to farmers and g r
deners in tbs South within reasonable dic
lanoes of paper mills. Ia the opinion nf the
experienced paper makers who watohed the
progress of toe work from the cutting of
tbs dry sulks of okra to the production of
paper from the maohine, the following
points may be regarded as established :
1 Okra requires but little handling to
prepare for boiling, is readily passed
through the outter, nee ia uo sorting, and
the entire plant is available from the root
to the pod.
2 It is easily boiled, if vieil cured, re?
quires only time to redone it, and may be
washed and beaten ready for the machine
in abont half the time required for prepar?
ing rag etook, thus largely inoreasing the
productive eapaoity of the mill without ad?
3. When properly boiled it yields readily
to the aation of chemicals and oan he bleach?
ed at no greater expense than ordinary
4. The pulp works as freely and smoothly
on the maohine as any other fibre-does not
stick to metallio press rolls like straw and
wood, even when working pare okra pulp,
dries readily, and oan be run safely at the
highest speed of the maohine.
6. The paper made here from it is very
strong, tough and elastic-better in these
respects, when made entirely of okra, than
either straw or wood pulp when mixed with
fity per oent. or more with rags. It has
none of the brittleness and hardness so ob?
jectionable in straw papers, and may be
fubjeoted to strong friction by rubbing be?
tween the thumb and fingers, or between
the hands, and will open ont smoothly and
soft as a glove.
6. It will make an excellent substitute to
mix with other fibres in the beating en?
gines, and is of itself a superior hand
7. Whether worked pure or mixed with
rags it makes a paper entirely free from
the objection justly raised by the printer
against straw and wood papers.
8. It makes an excellent stock for fine
wrapping paper, and imitation Manilla pa?
per, and even in its raw state, without boil
mgr or bleaching, makes a strong artiole of
oommon wrapping paper, suitable for gro?
cers and hardware use-superior to any
paper made cf straw.
The grand result will be the cheapening
of paper to consumen, and it ought to be
the transfer of paper manufacturing mainly
to the South, where this fibre is ao readily
and cheaply grown.
We may add that the Ghioksssabogue Pa
pi c Mills, near Mobile, are now advert?s
ing for okra stalks, and will purohase 1200
tons of that material if it can be furnished.

Those who have not had the courage to
read the latest work of Victor Hugo in the

Man Who Laughs is a wonderful work in
more senses than one, but it has power and

broad brutality-and will be universally
