tons-whereas, though last winter was not a
propitious season for ice-cutting, lt is known
that nearly 50,OOC. tons remained over in the

The advance is leading many customers to cut

-A letter in the New York Tribune from
North. Ana?na, Mass., says of the Chinese
lately Imported by Mr. Sampson, that they are
working awaysteadlly at their shoe-benches,
learning their new trade with marvellous fa?
cility, Uviiig 'simply and contentedly as their
Ancestors have foi thousand of years, and de
ty^ng their leisure most ardently to Ute a;
q;iisi?on of the English language. They have
primers and dictionaries printed for the pur?
pose of teaching learner? of their nation with
thie two widely diff?rent kinds of characters1 in
parallel columns; but they appear to find it
more agreeable to learu by another system,,
the magnitude of which seems-appalling at first
thought. They inquire the name ot an article at
random,and then repeat it hundreds of times till
it is firmly fixed in the memory. The Celestial
shoemakers are hearty eaters, requiring new
supplies of rice and fresh meat for their kitch?
ens In a way that somewhat encourages the
small traders of North Adams, who had been
led to suppose they could never learn to relish
anything but rats and puppy-dogs. Their tea
will be imported from their native land when
the supply they brought with them is exhaust?
ed, and which they persist in drinking from
their pint bowls, disdaining our diminutive
cups and puerile spoons. The correspondent.
In concluding his epistle, predicts that the
way will be opened under the Hoosac, that the
sandy barriers of Cape Cod will be dug away,
that the next great railroad across Massachu?
setts will be built, all within the next ten years,
and all by Chinese labor.
The "Glorious Fourth.'11
: This is the Fourth of July. Of late years
the national festival, once so universally ob?
served, has failed to excite any general en?
thusiasm at the South. But for us in South
Carolina, the anniversary might, with reason,
be prized more than ever, if it should prove
the opening day of the protracted political
struggle which, we trust, is to free us for?
ever from the incubus of a rule even- way
more galling to brave people than that
which the thirteen colonies fought, from Bun?
ker Hill to Yorktown, to shake off.
The Fate of the Earth.
It is consoling, while we perspire as patiently
as we may beneath the torrid rays of a July
sun, to be told by the astronomers that it is
no unusual circumstance, now-a-days, for
worlds, quite as large and, as far as we can
learn, quite as solid and respectable as our
own, to take fire and bnrn up. By the use
of that wonderful instrument, the spectro?
scope, these phenomena can be watched,
during their progress, by scientific men, and
the results recorded with absolute accuracy.
A star in the Northern Crown was seen, in
May, 1866, to blaze forth with sodden lustre,
and subsequently to be plunged in compara?
tive darkness. Mr. Huggins examined the
spectrum of the star, and was able to decide
that hydrogen was present in a state of com?
bustion. Tiie star, it seemed quite certain,
had become surrounded with flames, au I in
the course of twelve days it declined from
the second to the eighth magnitude. Other
stars have been observed to pass through
the same terrible changes. Ever}- new and
careful discovery which is made by means of
spectrum-analysis tends to utterly disperse
the "popular" idea that the sun is a "fixed
"atar" of unvarying brilliancy. It is quite
evident that it must vary to a prodigious ex?
tent. Every one of the great disturbances
which have taken place in previous years, has
left its traces upon the earth. It is ten and a
half years ago-the ordinary cycle of the sun?
spot periods-since Mr. Hodgson, at Oxford,
and Mr. Carrington, at London, happened
to be looking at the same moment at a clus?
ter of sun-spots. In a moment two intense?
ly bright patches of light covered the spots,
so that the astronomers thought the colored
glasses of their telescopes had been broken.
Ai this same instant, as was afterward found,
a great magnetic and electric storm occur?
red all over the world. The most intimate
relation evidently exists between these solar
convulsions and the condition of our world.
"Directly," wrote Mr. Proctor last year,
"one of these changes takes place, upward
''of ninety millions of miles away, the elec
"tric condition of our planet is changed in
'.some mysterious way, of which our instru?
ments, and even the condition of our sky,
Vbear record." These great changes take
place in the course of every eleven years,
and in 1S59 it was foretold that the next
vast disturbance of-the sun would occur in
1870. The New York Times, in speculating
upon the meaning of these portentous events,
declares that there is no longer now for any
rational man to doubt that forces are in ex?
istence all around us which are able to de?
stroy the world at any moment. Every liv?
ing creature might perish in a vast confla?
gration, and yet the earth itself remain to
be Inhabited at some future-it may be a
very distant-time, by a different class of
beings. It is believed by astronomers that
several of the planets are at this moment
the scene of preparations suca as must once
have gone on upon this earth of ours, ages
before mau inhabited lt. Geologists can tell j
us of numerous signs that once already the
earth must have melted with fervent heat
And the heat of the last eight days, if it has
any significance at all, might, we fancy, ad?
monish the men of science to watch with re?
doubled zeal the behavior of that flaming
solar mass, which would seem to be, under
Providence, the mighty arbiter of our fate.
Union In the Van.
Union County, which was first ia nominat?
ing her delegates to the Union Reform Con -
vention, likewise takes the lead of her sister
counties iu the promptitude of her organiza -
lion for the campaign. Measures have al?
ready been takeu by her citizens to form
clubs in every township, which clubs are to
send delegates to a County Convention to
be held at Union Courthouse,' on Monday,
August 1. The County Conveutiou will
Dominate a senator and representatives for
the Legislature, besides a full county ticket,
and will also elect delegates to a Congres?
sional District Cc nvention, to nominate a
proper person for Congress.

Pendleton on'national Progrrss. >
The address of the Eton. George H. Pen?
dleton, before1 the literary societies of the
University of Virginia, on Wednesday last,
'is said to have been a most eloquent and ad'
imtrabie effort. The subject was the con?
stant, regular, unremitting progress of the
human race, in everything which tends-to
its civilization and elevation-the main idea
being enforced by historical illustrations and
comparisons of the civilization of the worid
at diftereut epochs-and in different countries,
by reference to the-foll of nations and indi?
viduals. Mr. Pendleton, in referring to na?
tional matters, said: "It is true we are
"building up States in the wilds of the
"Rocky Mountains with wonderful rapidity;
"it is true we span the continent with rail
"and wire, aud send our thoughts in un in
-ptant across the waters of the old ocean it
"S'-U; it is true wc-are advancing with un?
equalled speed towards the summit of na?
tional power and renown. So much the
"greater is the reason why we should not
!'4ag behind in tho pathway of purity and
i "intellectual and literary eminence; so much
j "the greater is the reason that we Bhould at
j "all times remember that there is something
"better than national prosperity; so m ethic,
"worthier our efforts than physical honor or
"accumulated wealth. Let us lind, with
"hope, an incentive in the fact that the ages
"of greatest physical activity have been
"those of the greatest intellectual impulses."
He thought the true test of the worthiness
of the age is the worthiness of ourselves,
which each thinking man should apply to
himself ia the secrecy of his heart-learning
by experience, teaching by example.
Scott versos Whttteraore.
For several days past there have been
whispers among the knowing ones of "The
Party," that the ex-Honorable and ex-Rev?
erend B. F. Whittemore is casting covetous
eyes upon the Radical nomination for Gov?
ernor, which bas heretofore been regarded
as the particular right and property of one
R K. Scott. The Lancaster Ledger, in ven?
tilating the gubernatorial aspirations of the
incorruptible ex-Congressman, says:
" Governor Scott is charged, by the friends
of Whittemore, on the grounds of jealousy, os
having secretly aided in putting an end to his
rising prospects. It cannot be denied that the
whole ' Scott Ring ' feared the power and in?
fluence ot this man. And the arguments used
by Whlttemore's friends in justification of their
suspicions against Scott and the 'Ring,' to
to say the least of, are reasonable, and fully lu
keeping with Scott's ambitious nature. It is
further charged, that Scott could have saved
him if he had honestly desired to do so. View?
ing matters thus, the warm friends of Mr.
Whittemore have determined to push his
claims upon tho party at the nominating con?
vention, and whose services In the cause,
they claim, eclipse those of any other Repub?
lican In thc State.''
Let the Ring nominate whom they may, it
will be of small consequence. Scott or
Whittemore will alike go down before Car?
penter, Butler and Reform.

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to oar Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first 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 elty or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally 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 firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our VanilH
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness aft
delicacy of flavor. It is a strictly pure and high*
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think it thc best that ls made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best Judges in the coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete In price with
mauv of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, "which are really but worthless compound?,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
