-A dispatch from Fortress Monroe gives a de

ball. When the big ball has accomplished Its al?
lotted distance, lt fires ou thc smaller ball, which
attains a greater degree of velocity than had
been obtained by thc big ball-that is "goes it
faster than its parent." As the experiments
jost made are regarded as successful by the gun?
ners at the Fortress, there seems no reason why
the principal of the invention should not bc ex?
tended without limit-?ct infinitum. Then ia the
event of war with a foreign nation-China, for
Instance-our gunners at Fortress Monroe would
only have to get true range in order to batter
down the great gates of Pekin.
-Mr. J. C. Derby, in former years a prominent

to furnish pabulum for the body, but also nour?
ishment for the min<:. To effect the latter pur?
pose, he will inaugurate n book agency, on thesub
. scriptum plan, a system which has grown Into
such magnitude or late years. Mr. Derby's pres?
ent Held or labor comprises the States of Georgia,
South Carolina and Florida. Through this terri?
tory he will spread agents for thc sale or many
really valuable works, over which he has exclu?

Thc General Election Law.
We print to-day an abstract of the "Gen
-eral Election law" now before thc Genera
Assembly. A careful perusal of its provi
sions shows that il makes dangerous and un
justifiable chances in existing laws, and tha
its whole tendency is to prevent the whit
and colored voters from enjoying with free
dom tlie rights guaranteed to them by th
Constitution of the State. This bill shoul
be thoroughly and deliberately discussed.
The Proposed Postal Telegraph.
The actual assumption by the British Gov
ernmcnt of Hie control of the telegraph linc
throughout the I'niied King domhas terribl
alarmed tho management of that giant mc
nopoly, the Vt e?tcrn Union Company, le;
Congress should imitate thc policy of Pal
Hument in thi- respect. A powerful lobby 1
now at work nt Washington to prevent sue
a result. The main, and we may say til
only, objection urged against the propose
postal telegraph is that it is impracticable
When this subject was up once before, som
three years agi, tho Western Union Com
pany crushed it in committee by ex pari
testimony. Such a result cannot be cy
poded now, for members are bettor informe
on the subject, and it is probable that th
impractical measures for a postal telegrapl
inch as purchase of wires by government
dec., will all be abandoned, and if any bil
pass, it will be one looking to letting out th
contract for transmitting postal telegrap
messages at low rates to the company tha

of contracting for carrying Hie mails. Tc

WHAT rs Jurursji? or A Few Words to titi
.lews. By Rev. Raphael D'C. Lewin. Nev
York: D. Appleton & Co. 1ST0. diaries
ton : John Russell.
.Mr. Lewin gives a brief, clear and iuiprcs
sive . statement of the reform moveineni
among the Jews, of which lie is a cultiva?
ted and zealous advocate. His views an
rationalistic, thoroughly. Ne holds that
Judaism is ti spiritual and immortal idea,
which was originally given m consideration
of human infirmity, in a temporary, ceremo?
nial investiture. It is not so much the pro?
duct of Revelation, as Hie yearning of thc
soul for God. Hence its existence is inde?
pendent of all its forms. These have been
modified Ly local circumstances. Ere long
the most of them, the ancient rite of circum?
cision not excepted, will fall into desuetude.
But the Jew will exercise, in this event, a
still more potent influence as the anointed
teacher of the nations. Hence Hie author
regards the dispersion of his people as a
blessing to them and to mankind.
Mr. Lewin's positions will provoke discus?
sion, nnd will be warmly assailed by many
of his co-religionists, for in many important
particulars he protests against Hie Judaism
of tradition. Thus he denies the plenary
inspiration of Scripture, the divine institu?
tion of sacrifice, and the authority of any
ancient precept which cannot secure the
assent of modern "reasou." Ile repudiates
the belief in the restoration of Israel to the
land of their fathers, and Hie theory that the
Redeemer will come to Zion. Except in the
limited use of Heb.'cw in worship and tin.'
observance vf Hie great feasts of his people,
there is little to distinguish the ecclesiastical
polity of our author from that of the extreme
left of the Unitarian party. But whether it
is a just repr?sentation of historic Judaism,
may admit of question.
TUE WKSTjsnxsTKn RKVIEW*
For January, 1S7U, ison our table, with
the following list of articles: 1. Our Coloiliid
Empire. 2. Latid Tenures and their Cons??
quences. 3. The Subjection ol* Women, (a
highly eulogistic review of Mr. Mill's Look.)
.i. The Irish Laud Question. 5. Prostitu?
tion-Governmental Experiments in Con?
trolling it. ii. Our Policy in China. 7. Amer?
ican Claims on England. S. Contemporary
Literature. Even those who differ most
widely from the Westminster are forced to
admit ?ls vigor and critical ability. Its quar?
terly review of current literature is polished,
epigrammatic and withal thoughtful and just
to an extraordinary degree.
For January, is an interesting number.
Thc two serial stories, "Earl's Dene"' and
"John," are continued. The most sugges?
tive papers in the number are those on "Lord
"Lytton's Comedy, "Mr. Fronde and Queen
"Mary," and "Lord Byron and h's Calumni
"niators." Blackicootfs pol?t ?cal sympathies
make it lind in Lord Lytton's rhymed come?
dy of "Walpole" merits which neither its an?
alysis of the plot nor the extracts il makes
from thc play, appear to justify. We rather
fancy that "Walpole" must be held, as Beau
Brammers valet said of his master's cravat,
to bc one of Loni Lytton's failures. The
article on "Mr. Fronde and Queen Mary," is
an able and indignant protest against what
the critic considers the heartless treatment
by Mr. Fronde of the falsest woman and the
profoundest actress of the sixteenth, or per?
haps of any century. lu spite of the re?
viewer, wc think Mr. Fronde has the best of
the argument. The duty of the historian is
to truth, not to sentiment; and the oft mis?
quoted maxim "Demortui*" &c, is never
more out of place than in ti grave historical
discussion. Posterity will be likely to accept
Mr. Froude's verdict on the Scottish Queen,
Maga to Hu.- contrary notwithstanding.
The closing article on thc Byron contro?
versy is a more than usually convincing re?
ply to Mrs. Stowe's prurient romances.
HULMUOI.D, the great medicine man nf New
York, occupied an entire pago of the Hun with
his announcements. At the published rutes of
that paper, this little one day's demonstration
cost him exactly Si;:;u-a greater sum than
some sleepy old fogy business men think ur j
spending for making their business known in
twenty years' lime. But it pays. From a poor
mun ti short time ago. iiciinbold is nuw a mil- ;1
lionalre; and all from advertising.
Pittsburg and Charleston.
We notice that a bill i3 now pending in
he Pennsylvania Legislature in favor of the
Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston Railroad
Company. The projwsed road is looked,
ipon with great interest in Pittsburg as a
natter of vital importance to the western
section of Pennsylvania. The route to he
followed is from Pittsburg due south to Fair?
mont, on the Baltimore- and Ohio Road -r
thence still due south through West Vir?
ginia to Christiausburg. on the Virginia and
Tennessee Road, and near to the North
Carolina line, touching at White Sulphas
Springs on the way. From Christiansburg a.
connection is needed to Greensboro', on
the Richmond and Danville P.oad, to enable
a connection with Charleston. This, it ts
claimed, will give Pittsburg an air-line con?
nection with tlie whole network of Southern
railroads, and will create a market for her
manufacture? that cannot fail to clip a little
from the supremacy that Cincinnati contem?
plates in her Southern Road. The construc?
tion of two hundred aud eighty miles will
accomplish all that is necessay.
Thc Workingmen Abroad.
Our latest English files bring us a some?
what remarkable address which has just been
issued by an organization known as '-Tly?
"Land and Labor League." tu the men and
women of Great Britain and Irelnd, set?
ting forth thc present condition of the work?
ing classes, and the unsatisfactory effect of
tho course of legislation for thc last thirty
years in removing fiscal restrictions, and
closing with the assertion that the moral
foundation of ail civil government is that
the welfare of the entire community is thc
highest law. and ought to be the aim and
end of all legislation. The Land and Labor
League is a political organization of work?
ingmen, with an executive council of forty,
composed of the most prominent members
of the ditrerent trades. This executive coun?
cil has drawn up a platform of principles lo
serve a3 a programme of agitation, by means
of which a radical change can be effected.
This platform contains nine articles, as fol?
lows : First. Nationalization of the land.
Second. Home colonization. Third. Na?
tional, secular, gratuitous and compulsory
education. Fourth. Suppression of private
banks of issue: paper money to be issued
only by the government Fifth. A direct and
progressive property tax in lieu of all otlrer
taxes. Sixth. Liquidation of lite national
debt. Seventh. Abolition of the standing
army. Eighth. Reduction of the hours of
labor. Ninth. Equal electoral rights willi
the payment of salaries to members of Par?
liament. These principles, to-say the least,
embody Hie most advanced doctrines which
have yet been put, forth by the champions of
labor in the Old World.
THE English conn- have recently decided
that a newspaper bus a copyright in every
word and letter of every original article con?

SORGO SUGAR AND REFINED
We would Invite the attention of Planters to
thc consideration of some of thc advantages In
the cultivation of SORGO as a Crop, which are,
the small amount of labor; the hardy character
of thc plant in Its ability to endure, without ma?
terial injury, both drought and wet; Its freedom
from the attack of w -ms; Its early maturing,
and thc fact that the eed and every part of the
plant is of great value.
In consequence o. the Imperfect method
hitherto adopted In preparing the Juice of this
Cane, there has arisen a prejudice, and the belief
that Sugar could not be produced, but only a very
Inferior Syrup. But, by the discovery of the
Southern Process, these opinions have been com?
pletely reversed lu the minds of all those who
have examined and tested this Process, as they
realize that not only pure Syrup, superior to the
best Chemical Syrups of the Refineries, is pro
iluccd, but also Sugar equal to thc best New Or?
leans, in such quantity, as to make it without
doubt, thc most prollrahlc crop that eau bc plant?
ed. Of these facts abundant evidence can be
