-There comes from Germany a promise of
relief from the demands of the ice companies.
A certain Franz Wlndhausen, of Brunswick,
. has invented a new machine for freezing water
without the aid of chemicals. The process
takes place in a cylinder, "where the air is
flrst powerfully, condensed, then cooled by the
admission oC'water, and finally expanded UH
ita pressure ls about equal to that of thc at?
mosphere." By this means, it is asserted, the
very astonishing?eeulHs..t? of lowering
?the temperature of the air to fifty degrees
Celsius (four degrees Fahrenheit,) so that
when conduoted in moderate'quantities into a
apace through which water flows, "che water
is almort immediately turned into ice, of which
?enormous blocks must be thus obtained if de?
sired. " The Invention will also, lt ls said, be
applicable to the cooling of large apartments.
? steh as theatres, hospitals.and; churches.
-A letter from Athens, ?peaking of the exe?
cution of the-brigands concerned in the mur
4er ot the English travellers, says their decap?
itation was delayed in consequence pf the ab?
sence of the public executioner on a profes?
sional tour. The following list ol his perform
anees is given: "Last Friday week he beheaded
three brigands at Sty lida, on Saturday two at
Lamia, on Monday two at Hypate; he was then
at Levadei, where he was to execute a noto?
rious criminal. He was then to go to Chalcis
and to Athens to behead, afterward, thc seven
under sentence of death. His next destination
ls Corinth, where he iS-to. execute five brig?
ands, who have been for some time awaiting
the execution of their sentence. Ono of the
brigands.beheaded at Stylida had been con?
demned to death five times. These executions,
it might be imagined, would be a heavy blow
and great discouragement to brigandage, but it
is not so. Either the system or the sympathy
with it seems rooted among Hie mass of thc
Greek people, and by no means the people of
the lower orders exclusively."
-The following letter and .more accurate
particulars of the sudden attack which termi?
nated in the death ot Mr. Dickens have been
obtained by your correspondent: "Mr. Dick?
ens was talking to Miss Hogarth, his n'ipce, ct
the table, when he started suddenly, and re?
marked thar, he felt a twinge or pain ns if from
toothache. Miss Hogarth took him by the
arm and led him from the room, thinking the
air might revive him. He had taken but two
or three steps forward when he suddenly stag?
gered and fell heavily upon his right side, be?
coming immediately unconscious, in which
condition he was borne to his couch and a
physician summoned. He remained speech?
less and insensible until his death, which oc?
curred within twenty-four hours after the at?
tack. The physician who examined Mr. Dick?
ens reported that the pupil of the right eye
was much dilated, while that of the lett eye
was correspondingly contracted. His breath?
ing was stentorous and his limbs remained
flaccid until about halt an hour before death,
when a slight nervous convulsion occurred.
The symptoms were conclusively those of
apoplexy. No post mortem examination to de?
termine the nature and character of the fatal
illness has been Instituted."
The House of Representatives, yesterday,
after a long and exciting debate, refused, by
a vote of 131 to 24, to admit B. F. Whitte
more, the seller of cadetships, to a seat in
. This honorable and, we must say, unex?
pected action, has a two-fold significance.
It is at once a condemnation of the crime of
which Whittemore was guilty, and a deserv?
ed rebuke to the deluded men who re-elected
Whlttemore to the high position which he
had already been declared, by the House of
Representatives, wholly unworthy to fill.
Congress, in a word, declares by a decisive
vote that party fealty will atone for per?
sonal dishonesty, and that sound politics
shall not excuse unsound morals and brazen
violations bf personal and official propriety.
This, it most be borne in mind, is the posi?
tion of the Union Reform party, as well
as of the plucky majority which leave3
the cadetship-seller to shiver in the cold
of the Congressional lobby. That party
does not war against Democracy or Radical?
ism, but against corruption and ignorance in
office, extravagant expenditures of the public
funds, and partial legislation. The Union
Reform party support oie set of men and
oppose another, not because of their politi?
cal belief, but because the latter, like Whit
terhore, are unworthy to hold any offlce of
honor, trust or profit
Congress bas acted wisely and well. And
we hope that therday will soon come when,
all over this broad Continent, no man shall
be the candidate of any party, who is not, by
bis integrity and truth, worthy to be the
repr?sentative and mouth-piece of the
people ! _ _
The Moral Danger of the State.
Loss of property and a lessening of per?
sonal security, although among the most
grievous consequences of an impure and in?
capable government* are not by any means
the most enduring reasons why it is the duty
of every good citizen to take an active part
in thc movement for obtaining a faithful and
worthy administration of the affairs of the
State. Oppressive tax^on and a growing
public debt prevent the accumulation of pri?
vate wealth, and gradually eat away the
most considerable fortune. The argument
which touches the pocket has a concrete
force difficult to be measured* by words. This
cogent power drives the people into the
camp of Reform, and should make the new
paru-, as a matter of personal interest, deci?
sively successful But unless it is desired to
have only a temporary reform, a momentary
light to be followed by pitchy darkness, the
public must govern their actions by a higher
motive than dollars and cents. They must
work for Purity and for Honesty as indis?
pensable to the moral and intellectual, as
well as the material, healthfulness of all this
people. Unlet?3 the body politic be purged
and cleanse., tho popular mind cannot be
strong ?nd vigorous, free to labor for ita own
advancement aud for the highest good of
The history of South Carolina before the
war between the States is grandly simple;
it is the history of a people who valued
wealth, but did not make it their God, who
loved art aud letters, who honored virtue
and revered their chaste women-the moth?
ers and the daughters and the wives of the
idolized Palmetto State. There was no rest?
less progress, no feverish activity of hand or
blain. Tho stream of life flowed evenly
along-broad enough and deep euough to
bear the hopes aud the happiness of a people,
its borders all aglow with the tropic hue3
of the flowers of ambition and fame. To
make haste slowly was the watchword of the
Conservative statesmen of lue time. This
thing was not scorned because it was old,
nor was that thing adored because it was
new. The whole tone of society was calmly
conservative, gracefully strong-the black
j snake which lay beneath the roses was un?
seen or forgotten.
And the war was a rude awakening from
dreamy reverie and indolent self-content.
Smooth-facod boys and bearded mou, their
Southern hearts all aflame, answered their
mother's call-pouring out their precious
blood on thc sands of the coast and in the
valleys of the West, enshrining their martyr
bones in the mighty reliquary of the South
that grand old State, VIRGINIA. The war
brought with it no easily perceptible weak?
ening of the moral fibre. There were men,
the first bloom of whose honor was brushed
away in rude buffeting with the world ; there
were fair girls who forgot that there is a
faultiness of thought as well as of act. Hut
on ly a handful feU. The wajr '.demoralized" lit?
tle more than would have been tarnished and
smirched had not the dogs of Mars been loos?
ed upon the land. And in 1865, though riches
were swept away and home3 made desolate,
this people was manly and true-purified,
not destroyed, by the Ores of affliction.
For the Grsj} year or two the tone of South
Carolina was unchanged. It is true that the
whites were shocked at the thought that
ignorance and inexperience might be set up
in authority over intelligence and wealth.
But this was not their work, and they wait?
ed patiently and quietly for that settlin:
down which naturally follows a cycle of ts
mult and strife. The body chosen to f;auie
a new constitution met and did its tfork.
Still there was no perceptible change in the
common standards of right and wrong.
Governor'Scott was elected and the recon?
struction General Assembly began its ses?
sions. This was the turning point.
After two years of party legislation,
the people halt and hesitate. Whether they
go with the truth or join hands with false?
hood, depends upon the victor]/ or defeat of \
R. K. Scott and his Ring, in the coming
Already the evil leaven is working. The
General Assembly could be bought, and peo?
ple began to think that the conclusive argu?
ment of money was more convenient than
the reasoning founded on equity and right.
The State officials were selling their influence,
and men of our own people were found ready
and eager to buy. Greedy politicians grew,
rich by filching and by venal speculation,
and South Carolinians were ready to join the
Bing and take their share. They used the
deceitful plea that these thing3 could not be
prevented, and where money was going beg?
ging, they, as well as strangers, had a right
to a part of the spoils. This feeling is grow?
ing in strength, and during the la3t few
months, public men, whose hands before
were clean, are declared tb have 6old them?
selves for a big fee or an interest in a lucrv
tive speculation. They have gi ven themselves
up, body and soul Co a band of thieves and
robbers for a part of the common booty.
Men begin now to judge by the standardiof ]
profit and not by the standard of right. Ex?
ample has its influence, and-we firmly be?
lieve that another two years of shameless
thieving and public impurity will so sap- the
foundations of themoral fabric, that all South
Carolina will secretly be governed by the
identical influences which make Scott and
his free companions a hissing and a by-word
throughout the Union.
It is not all of life to grow sleek sud rich.
How dare men make money by trickery and
briber}*, and then hope that their own sons
will be upright and pure ? The canker of
immorality eats into the very heart of so?
ciety. Good citizens now calmly do things
which it would have destroyed them to think
of in the times before the war. The bolte
and pins are loosened which held together
the noble fane of South Carolina integrity.
Two years more of straining and heaving
will sunder timber from timber, and send the
whole mass into the vortex of public and
privato corruption. And upon the citizens
of this State, for themselves and their chil?
dren, rests the burden of responsibility.
They may restrain the advancing tide. They
may burn out the festering sores. Thoy may
drive away the thieves and money-changers,
who desecrate the capitol. They may show
the world what a noble sight it is to see a
whole people struggling as one man, not for
gold or lands, but for an honest government,
which may protect rich and poor alike, and
will, in all its departments, be able, impar?
tial and pure. In this way they may save
thc oid State from ruin, they may save their
own names from dishonor, they may en?
courage their children to live like the men
who made thc name of South Carolina, in
olden days, synonymous with rectitude aud
