evident by biter movements, was the separa?

-Frank Thorne has had enough of jumping
for the present. He will not disturb the eddles
of Niagara River this season. That leap of
one hundred and twenty-five feet from the
roof of an elevator, Into the Buffalo River, has
sufficed for his ambition. As Thorne ls the
only man who has lived to describe his sensa?
tions after dropping such a distance through
the air, lt ls Interesting to learn his experi?
ences. For the gratification of contemplated
auicldes, he says that no sense of pain was at j
my time experiences, -ither tn his descent or
when he struck the water with such terri?
ne violence. To be sure, three seconds ls
not a-long period for reflection, but three
seconds in such a position ls equivalent to a
much longer time in another. His thoughts,
then, were that lt was pleasant, "perfectly
happy;" next, that he was sprawling too
much and would probably be killed, or, as he
expressed lt, "Good-by, Frank;" finally he
felt as ii in a dream he had fallen, without
pain. It is evident that the rapid passage
through the air took away the young man's
nerve, and that the instinctive and irresistible
Impulse to grasp something forced his arms
and legs to grope through the air In the man?
ner which so nearly caused his death by throw?
ing him on his side. The subsequent sensor
tlons were not so agreeable as those preceding
the fall. For about half an hour, he was un?
able to breathe with any satisfaction, and he
compares his present aensatlons with those
which might ensue from a beating with a
board. As Thorne declares that he has no
appetite, not even for poached eggs or toast,
jumping from elevators cannot be recommend?
ed as a good morning exercise.
Probable Effect of the Invasion of
France-A German View.
The commercial prosperity of the South
depends in so large a degree upon the dura?
tion o? the European war-a war, moreover,
which enlists on either side the wannest
sympathies of our people-that we think it
due to the public to placo before them a well
digested review of the military and political
situation, even when it does not accord with
the opinions entertained by this paper, and
expressed in its columns. We therefore print
the following article', which fs especially di?
rected to a discussion of the effect likely to
be produced upon the patriotic ardor and
warlike spirit of the French people by the
invasion of their country by the armies of
Germany. The writer of the article is an
able critic and a close observer, and his
opinions deserve, and will doubtless obtain,
a thoughtful consideration :
"Those who believe the advance of the
German army on the soil of France will
have the same general and permanent
effect on the French people, which the inva?
sion of the German army under the com?
mand of the Duke of Brunswick in 1792
produced, appear not sufficiently to consider
the vast difference of circumstances which
existed then and now.
. "In 1792 the sovereigns of Germany,
backed secretly by England and Russia, had
united in a coalition for the purpose of over?
throwing the popular government which had
jeen gradually formed in France since 1789.
Partly instigated by the French emigrated no?
bility, who had represented the condition of
Trance as favorable to foreign interference,
>artly from motives of self-interest and in
lefence of their own sovereign rights, the
coalition determined to interfere in the
nternal affairs of their western neigh- '
>or, and to reinstate Louis XVI on the
ibsolute throne of his ancestors, against the
?ill of his (former) subjects. No nation
voulu have quietly submitted to such dicta
ion from abroad, least of all the French
talion. The impolitic, not to say insolent,
nanifesto of the Duke of Brunswick, in
vhich he declared that any resistance on the
>art of the French people to the objects of
iis mission would be visited upon them with
ire and sword, the dictatorial tone which
pervaded this strangely infatuated document,
?ould have no other effect than to call forth
he unanimous and enthusiastic determina
ion of the French people not to sheathe the
iword until the invader was driven from
heir soil. Hence, with perhaps the excep
ion of the Court, the dissident clergy and
me or two departments under the influence
>f this clergy, the French united as one man
n defence of their country and their newly
icquired liberties. It is true, the declaration
if war proceeded in 1792, as in 1870, from
he French. However, it is not the party
vhich declares war, but the one which makes
var necessary, that must be held responsible
or it, and it wa3 the coalition on whose
ihouldei'3 that responsibility rested. How
lifferent U the state of affairs nowl We
viii not examine the irreconcilable enmities
ind jealousies of the Romanic and Ger
nanic nations, as deeply rooted as the mis
lion which both are appointed to fill in the 1
listory of the world is different; we will not (
Iwell on the necessity of deciding sooner or '
ater the future predominance of the one or
he other, which may lie at the bottom of '
he whole trouble; we cannot, placed thus 1
ar from the theatre of action, judge whether '
Ji3marck or Napoleon, by any undue desire '
if territorial aggrandizement, have made '
>eace between the two leading nations of 1
Continental Europe impossible; we can only 1
ldge of the immediate events which have (
aused France to draw the sword. And 1
tere the conviction force3 itseir upoh our
aind, that, however loath the Emperor
napoleon may have been to commence war
it this time, he has been driven into it by
he increasing dangers which have threat- i
med him at home, rather than by any imme- '
hate and flagrant dereliction on the part of '
Prussia. Approaching possibly the ?nd of i
ii3 earthly career, with the fiascos of Mexico |
md Sadowa to wipe out, pressed by nume- '
.ous and, in part at least, unscrupulous ad- 1
.ersaries at home, knowing that the French 1
jet easily tired of everything old, and feel- :
ng that he himself is growing old-for he ,
ios reigned twenty years-with a bigoted ,
ind uupopular wife and a little boy towards |
vhom the French nation has uever exhibited
my marked sign3 of affection, he waa com
jelled to play ~va banque," to commence
he war, and to commence it now, in order
;o insure, if possible, the permanence of his
lyuasty after his death. Thus forced by
?ircumstances beyond his control, Napoleon
las been driven to pick a quarrel with the
lated hereditary enemy of his nation, he has
leclared war without flagrant provocation,
vithout immediate just cause. A3 Thiers,
limself a bitter enemy of Prussia, has said,
io should have fought last year or wait until
?ext year. But he could do neither, for last
.earlie was not ready and next year might
je too late for him. The sympathies of the
catling European nations have thu3 from the
jeginning of the quarrel been turned against
lim ; but what a powerful element of success
ire not such universal sympathies at the
present day, and who can calculate their
ultimate effect on toe French people, in case
repeated defeat convinces them of the im?
probability, the impossibility of success ?
"But to return to the point from which we
?tarted. The advance of the North-Germau
inny into France can hardly be termed au
nvasiou, uor wili sensible Frenchmen view
X as such 03 sooa as their present excite
merit has somewhat calmed down. Napo?
leon has attempted to invade German terri?
tory. He has been foiled, defeated. What else
could the Prussians do after their victory
than to advance on French soil?' However,
they have, done so slowly; they have pub-,
lished no manifesto, offensive to French
pride, in which they threaten conquest or
even overthrow of the present government
of France;" on the contrary, Bismarck has
expressly declared, that the war on the part
of Germany is no war of French conquest,
but solely an assertion and defence of Ger?
man interests. But these interests are a
consolidation of a whole united Germany,
and nothing else. This tho Germans must
have, nor will the war end without its firm
establishment. But will the French, when
they have recovered from the first shock of
wounded pride, when they have, perhaps,
received new evidences of Prussian disci?
pline and prowess, when they become aware
that the present occupation of French soil
is only a military necessity, ilrat no interfer
' ence with their internal affairs is intended
any farther than the security of German in?
terests may require-will the French nation
then, without division, persist in its present
enthusiastic resolve, 'to drive out the inva?
der,' or will not rather parties spring up,
which will hamper the government until they
efiect its downfall? Orleanists and Republi?
cans, however patriotic, will work with re?
newed vigor for the overthrow of the Napo?
leonic dynasty, for, as Mignet say3, 'French
patriotism always has an eye towards get?
ting into power.' But if Napoleon falls,
what next? Who can tell? If a Republic
is established will the excesses of 1793 be
repeated? Will the war then be prolonged
by foreign interfereuce in order to put down
such excesses, so dangerous to the rest of
Europe ? Or will the French welcome back
the Comte de Paris, the son of the beloved
Duke of Orleans, and of a Mecklenburg
Princess, connected by blood with the Royal
house of Prussia ? If Napoleon has to fall
and we should deeply regret it, for he has been
a great ruler, a true Frenchman, and the
promoter of the present greatness of
France-we sincerely hope the latter, for the
sake of peace, civilization and for all the
best interests of mankind."
The following letter gives the particulars
of one of the thousands of cases in which
land-owners have been oppressed by the un?
just taxation of the Scott Ring. The letter
speaks for itself:
CAJ?OEX, S. C., August 17, 1870.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
T see that you ask land-owners to report ali
cases of excessive taxation which have come
within their knowledge. I only speak for
My land is mostly pine land, and when I
purchased lt, my papers will show it only cost
me about five thousand dollars. I have sold
about five hundred acres, and yet own two
thousand eight hundred acres. The price paid
for most of it was trom one to 'wo dollars per
acre, and about seven hundred acres of it only
cost me sixty-six cents per acre. Now, when
the assessment was made on lt in 18C9 the price
was put at nine dollars and fifty cents per acre.
The amount of assessment was about twenty,
six tliousand dollars, and my taxes were about
two hundred dollars. I refused to pay it and
sent on to some board for a reduction, and it
was reduced a little-I suppose about enough
to pacify me to pay it, like giving the child one
more plum to keep him quiet. The land-own?
ers are certainly dealt harshly with, as far as
taxes are concerned. E. PARKER.
Let us have more facts I The unvarnished
truth, without comment, will ruin the Scott
Ring beyond any hope of recovery. Scott
and his associates boast that taxation lias
been "reasonable." It may be "reasona?
ble" to them. A robber may call it ''rea?
sonable" if his companions filch one tenth
of his ill-gotten gains. But to tax the hon?
est citizen in a like proportion, is a burden
no people can endure.
The Sumter News and General Butler.
We have received for publication ' 'A Card"
in which H. L. Darr and N. G. Osteen, the
proprietors of the Sumter Netos, and L. B.
Gay, its editor, deny categorically the truth
of the statemeut, alleged to have been made
by General M. C. Butler, at Lexington, that
"the Sujnler Neics has been bought up by
Scott." If General Butler did make the
statement attributed to him by our reporter,
tie believes the charge to be true: but we
;heerfully lay before the public the emphatic
lenial of those who must best know what
ire the political and financial connections of
their journal. The "Card" itself is too ln
lemperate In its language to be printed-in
A Chance for Scott.
E. W. Seibels, Esq., iu behalf of the Exe?
cutive Committee of the Union Reform party,
"I have received several messages and unof?
ficial communications, intimating that the Re?
publican party would meet us In discussion lt
we would permit them. It they will send me
an official communication from their party,
they will receive a proper answer. I am
ready to arrange the terms of discussion with
any one authorized to meet me on the subject.
The gauntlet has been thrown down; we call
upon the champions of the Republican party
to take it up; lt cannot be done by proxy."
Here is an opportunity which, we feel sure,
his Excellency Governor R. K. Scott, will
not allow to pass unimproved. Carpenter
should look to his laurels, for we all know
Governor Scott is an accomplished orator.

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 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 eity 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 ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still farther Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla B$ans. bi
short, we think it the best that is made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges tn * i coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
