of Louisiana, brought against the proprietor of

resulted in a disagreement ot the Jury.
It is said that a variety of races were repre?
sented among the Jurymen, and that a colored
juror waa prominent In opposing tae intcn
tiOBA of the tremere of the law, alleging that
hehlmselfdidnotwant white men os visitors
at colored people's ball s, "to como there and
take my colored ladles away." After long and
heated dicussion, the other Jurors agreed to
take the opinion of a grave and silent German.
He decided that, as it had been evident that
the lawyers In the case were at variance upon
the law, th? justice, and-the* evidence adduced,
it could not be expected that a jury which
knew far less about such matters should agree.
And this sagacious opinion was adopted as the
finding of the Jury.
, -The Chinese question has beea taken up
in earnest by tho-Six Companies, whose circu?
lar on the subject was mentioned by telegraph
a few days ago. This circular, which is to be
posted throughout the cities and towns of the
Celestial Empire Europe, is Indeed discourag?
ing in its tone, according to tho translation
which late California papers furnish. The
companies urge that California and the Pacific
States are not, as once, the El Dorado of the
world, and that placer mining, in which
branch o? the business Chinese miners gene?
rally engage, is not paying. Moreover, they
assert that, in case a Chinaman manages
to make money at this business, the chances
are that he will be robbed of it by lazy and
ruffianly white men.?. Only thc merchants
get rich, while the common Chinese arc not
respected, have no rights, and occupy a posi?
tion not above that of beasts of burden. This
condition of things has long been known here,
but it has also been supposed that the situa?
tion of the Chinese emigrant in California does
not exceed, either in poverty or unpleasant?
ness, the case of the same class at home.
From the statement of the Six Companies,
however, we must understand that in Chinese
opinion it is better to stay in the semi-barbar?
ism of the Flowery despotism than to travel to
this land of. semi-freedom for Asiatics. Wc
also learn that there is actual destitution
among the Chinese on the Pacific coast, which
the merchants are unable to relieve.
A Trae Dian Gone.
We announce, with unfeigned regret, the
sudden death of Lieutenant S. J. Burger,
which took place at Cartersvllle, Georgia,
on yesterday morning. For some time he
had been in failing health, and on Wednes?
day last he left Charleston, with thc inten?
tion of remaining a short time in Georgia.
The change of air would, it was hoped, res?
tore his strength, and enable bim to resume
his business duties with undiminished vigor.
Unhappily, however, the spot which was to
give him new life, was the scene of his la?
The whole career of Lieutenant Burger,
his principle and his practice, is expressed
in these few words-Fidelity to tinsl, and
devotion to duty. These were the guiding
stars ol forty-three years of usefulness and
Lieutenant Burger was born in Charles?
ton in 1827, and began business in the house
of Mordecai & Co., in 1845. Subsequently
he opened a clothing store, on his own ac?
count, in King street, and at the breaking,
out of the war, he was bookkeeper fxjr/
Messrs. Dunham & Taft. On May 13, 18?;
he became a member of the Washington
Light Infantry, and went into camp on Sul?
livan's Island with that gallant company be?
fore the capture of Fort Sumter. When the
battalion was regularly mustered into ser?
vice, Mr. Burger went with it as Lieutenant
of Company B. At tho battle of Secession
ville, he was . wounded in the arm, and at
the battle of Drury's Elu tl', in 18C4, he Was
again wounded-this time lu thc foot. Be?
ing unfit for further active service, he was
placed on. the retired list. Would any one
know what manner of soldier he wa3, his
old comrades, who fought and bled by
his side, stand ready to answer for his cour?
age, his endurance und Iiis skill. Deeply
will they regret that he who looked forward
with so eager an interest to the raising of a
monument to his fallen comrades, who la;
bored so diligently to accomplish the diffi?
cult work, should now, on the threshold of
the dedication day, himself bc numbered
with the dead.
After the close of the war Lieutenant
Burger became the bookkeeper of THE
NEWS, which post be held at thc time of his
death. It need hardly bo saul that he was a
model of unswerving* fidelity and untiring
diligence. All his life, his every wish and
desire, appeared to be bound up in the con?
scientious discharge of his whole duty.
There was no niggardliness in his devotion
to the interests of Iiis employers. lu every
sense of the word, he was a true, an honest
man. The proprietors of TIIE NEWS feel that
in him they have lost one whose place it will
be difficult, indeed, entirely to till. And
they desire to place on the record here, a full
acknowledgment of their high appreciation
of his earnestness, iutcgrity and unsullied
The funeral of Lieutenant Burger will
take place at St. John's Church at 5 o'clock
this afternoon, and the friends and acquaint?
ances of the deceased, as well as the mem?
bers of the Washington Light Infantry Char?
itable Association, and theGerman Friendly
Society, of which he waa a member, are in?
vited to be present So may they pay the
last mark of respr-ot to one who counted all
Charleston among his friends, and had not a
"Because lt Pays,"
The Winnsboro' News, Bhrewd and pun?
gent as usual, approves of the mooted
schemes of manufactures, direct trade and
immigration, not on account of any remote
or incidental-good to come from them, but
because the direct profit and expediency of
each, and the immediate benefits that each
will confer, are so very clear, that their cause
is weakened by distracting the attention
away from them, even for the purpose of ex?
hibiting other incidental blessings that they
The News sums up the case thus :
"It it is not true that, the South possesses
advantages over all the world for spinning, as
sh% docs for ginning cotton, we would not
urge tho subject of cotton manufacturing.
There was a time when cotton was sent in the
seed to England. To export it in thc seed
now, seems to us very little more short-sighted
and thriftless, than sending colton in the lint,
as we do every year, instead of in yarns.
"Again: A direct line of steamers to Europe
will pay handsomely. The business is a per?
fectly sure ?ne, and money invested in It ls
money judiciously invested In a most profita?
ble way. Therefore, let us take stock in a
steamship line from Charleston to Europe. It
will pay. No other argument is needed.
"Lastly: Those who have Introduced five hun?
dred immigrants in Newberry and Laurens,
find it Tery profitable, lt supplies labor where
it is needed. Money is made by it. There?
fore, sober meu advocate immigration, be?
cause it pays."
MR. ROTIIROCK, of Chester, has recently
discovered gold on his farm, and has boen in
negotiation with, some Northern capitalists,
who propose to opeu out thc vein on shares.
The Reporter says : "With the climate and
"soil she possesses, Chester is r5Yic of the most
"desirable locations on tho sur/8ce of God's
"green earth. Add gold mines to her other
"attractions, and socr. she would be thc rich

Thc Test Oath.
The fact that many men were being nomi?
nated for Congress who are known to hive
been honorably engaged in the late straggle,
together with the expression of opinion on
the part of mauy with whom be met, that
the test oath prescribed by act of Congress,
approved July 2, 1862, had been superseded
by the Fourteenth amendment, induced the
editor of the Chester Reporter to address a
letter to lion. F. A. Sawyer, asking for an
authoritative statement in regard to the oath
required of members of Congress. In reply
lie received the following:
"UNITED STATES SENATE CHAMBER,
"Washington, June 4, 1870.
"Dear Sir- Your letter of 1st instant, inquir?
ing 'whether Congress now requires the test
oath of 1862 to be taken by its members, or
whether any person who ls laboring under no
disabilities by the Fourteenth amendment is
eligible to a scat in that body,' has just been
"In reply I have to state, that all members of
cither house of Congress, and all other officers
of thc United States Government, are now, by
law, required to take the oath prescribed by
act ot Congress, approved July 2,1862, except
those persons only who have been relieved of
their political disabilities. The latter class
are required, belore entering upon the duties
of the offices to which they may have been
elected or appointed, to take and subscribe
the oath prescribed by act of Congress, ap?
proved July ll, 1868, which ls simply an obli?
gation to support and defend the Constitution
of thc United States against all enemies, for?
eign and domestic; to bear true faith and alle?
giance to the same; and to well and faith?
fully discharge the duties of the office on
which the person so taking the oath is about
"The Senate has passed an act requring the
latter oath of all persons not under the disa?
bilities imposed by the Fourteenth amendment,
and who cannot take the 'test oath.' But
the House of Representatives has not yet acted
upon thc proposition; though I am in hope
that it will do so before the session ends, or
certainly before this Congress ceases to exist.
"Your obedient servant,
"F. A. SAWYER.
"E. C. MCLURE, Esq., Chester, S. C."
We understand from this letter that no
person who cannot take the ' 'iron-clad"
oath, can take his seat in the United States
House of Representatives, unless his politi?
cal disabilities have been removed, in which
^case he is only required to take an ordinary
bath of allegiance.
Party pressure i3 usually strong enough,
as with Messrs. Simpson and Reed, to pre?
vent the removal of the disabilities of any
member elect who is not a thorough-going
Radical, and, unless it is desired to have thc
Radical candidates seated, whether elected
Or not, the people must take care not to nomi?
nate any man for Congress, unless hehas
already had his disabilities removed, or eau
take the "iron-clad" oath.
HEXRIETTA TCMPLE; a Love Story. By Right
Hon. B. Disraeli. New York: D. Applelon
A Co. Charleston: John Russell.
The marked sensation which Mr. Disraeli's
recent novel Lothair has created in the liter?
ary world, has moved the Appletons to un?
dertake the republication of the earlier works
of the same illustrious author, which lind, in
a measure, passed out of public notice.
The first of these, Henrietta Temple, lias
made its appearance. It is an old-fashioned
love story, in which the delineation of the
grande passion differs as widely from the
portraiture of the same sentiment in the
modern novel, as does the girl of the period
from the beauties who played ^havoc with
men's hearts in the days when' our grand?
mothers were young. Thu3, from ils very
contrast with the novels of the day, Henri?
etta Temple enjoys an element of freshness
which will make it an acceptable volume at
this time, especially with the rising genera?

This modest little work docs not. of
course, claim to place within the reach of
the beginner iu French all the advantages
in the matter of a rapid acquirement of
French pronunciation, which aro thc usual
result of residence among and familiar inter?
course with Frenchmen; but a careful Blady
of its pages will certainly enable tho learner
to avoid gross mistakes, and to pronounce,
on the whole, with precision and correctness.
The simple arid yet completo and exhaustive
arrangements of the book will add to thc
high reputation which Professor Sachtleben
has so long borne among our people as an
instructor, and his system will be a most
welcome assistance to the hundreds of teach?

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As kui years have now elapsed since we Irst in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a city or town of any note in the
country into which they have not fonnd their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and daily Increasing demand is owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further improved
their quality, and now we (Irmly and honestly be?
lieve that hey stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cuunot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of davor. It is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Heans, in
short, wu think lt the beal that is made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges lu the coun?
try. We don't pretend to confiere lu price with
many of the so-cullud Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which arc really but worthless compounds,
unclescrvine of the hame.
For quality and style, wc defy competition.
