-A gentleman in his eagerness at the table to J
answer a call for some apple-pie, owing to the I
Jmife slipping on the bottom of the dish, found I
lils knuckles burled in the crust, when a wag who
sat opposite him very gravely observed, whilst lie J
held his plate: "Sir, I'll trouble you for a bit while I
your hand is in."
-Mr. Corcoran, of Washington, has deeded ic a
board or ti us tees and governors, a plot or ground,
with the necessary buildings, for the? establish
ment of an institution to maintain such "des??
tate bat refined and educated gentlemen as may
be admitted to its benefits.1' Thc Institution ls lo
be maintained by the donor's endowments.
-A sclent ide lecturer on walking says his ex?
periments show that one side of the body always j
tends CO outwalk the other side. It ls not possible
when the eyes are shut to walk (n a straight line
for any length or time, and it will be found, where
persons lose their way, that they almost lnvaria
oly wander on* to the right rather than to the left.
-A fiend In haman shape was engaged In I
planking a certain sidewalk in a certain Western
etty, when a woman In gorgeous apparel stopped
near the scene of his labors to chat with a friend.
Her train hungover the edge or the last plank he
had pnt in position, and he quietly slid another
?ne alongside of it. and securely spiked it down.
The fiend then went away to dinner.
-The public lands, though the heritage or all,
Have been given to speculators to the amount or
160,000,000 acres in the last few years. It ls time the J
?Id States, which contributed so largely both to
origma! and later purchases, shared more fully In
the benefits of the common possession, either by I
direct benefits, or what is better, reduced Fede?
-A curious swindling project is reported from j
.r?nfltralla. A deposit of gold and quarcz recently
supposed to have been discovered in Victoria, I
. ?Amuralla, created much excitement. A company I
was formed, and the shares were rapidly taken I
and paid for. Further Investigation, however,
showed that the mine had been veneered with
gold leaf, laid on with size and varnish. The
projectors of the company have been arrested.
-Ten years ago, after the war brok* out, the I
Democrats had not a singlo Governor in the
United States. Now they havo thirteen, as fol- j
lows: Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Dela?
ware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia. Alaba
ma. Tennessee, Kentucky, California, Orej?n and
Nevada. To these the Cincinnati Enquirer says
the Democrats expect to add, in 1871, Ohio, Penn?
sylvania and Wisconsin, and in 1672 India ia, HU
nols and the remainder of the Southern States.
-A fire-escape, presenting some novel features, j
lu been tried In New York at the St Nicholas
Hotel. The fire-escape consists or a canvas tube
twenty Inches in diameter, which can be fixed to
any window by grapnels or the simplest descrip?
tions, which preclude the possibility of slipping
.risen once attached. At Intervals of ten inches
along the tube are springs formed of No. 18 wire
wonud spirally round a thicker wire, . which
effectually moderate the descent of the person de?
scending, so that by merely pressing outward the
elbows or knees, he can stop at any point and
reach the* rou nd as slowly as he wishes. The ap?
paratus, which, when folded up, takes up only a
space of two feet each way, was fixed to a win?
dow flfiy-nlne feet from the ground, and some
thirty men and boys descended with safety and
ease. The apparatus eau be attached to a win?
dow in thirty seconds. The bpejimen on exhib?
tlon, which was sixty feet long, weighed forty- I
sive poa oils.
-A New York letter sajs: "The number or men I
out or employment U Immense, and hun arrisare
added to it weekly. At fri e door of Cooper li s ti I
tate reading-room, the other day, several men,
evidently of the working class, stood talking.
Said one, 'I have not earneu a dollar In three
months.' Another said, 'lt ls Jnst as bad with
me; can't get work anywhere.' A third could not
stay at home it was so cold, BO he came to the I
reading-room every day to keep warm. This was
the drift or the conversation. Within the read- j
lng-room there were probably three hundred men,
from twenty-five to sixty, all oat of work, and
trying to kill time. And they looked like men j
willing enough to work, if they could find work
to do. Only those who go among the poor ht.ve j1
any real knowledge of the distress among the j i
working-classes. It may not be grater than in | ,
previous winters, bat certainly it ls not lesa. Tho
aid societies are ran down with applicants for

-The Pittsburg Commercial says: "Thone Ger- j
maa Americans who believe that the German lan- (
?sage ls destined to nourish forever as a popular
speech in this country are able to make a consld- (
arable show of argument lu ra vor of their belief. 1
Sar instance, one of these sanguinely hopeful t
Tentons has lately pnt one reason for hts faith in
the form ora question, which strikes the reader
with some force. With comparatively few Ger?
man schools, and he might have saki for a long
time with few or no German newspapers, the lan?
guage has maintained itself la Pensylvanla Tor
two hundred years as a living speech, so that
even now descendants of the flrst settlers of the
third, fourth, firth, sixth, and even of the seventh
generation speak German, belong to German
churches and read German books and newspa?
pers. How many hundred years, then, may the
language be expected to be kept alive In the
Western States, where there aro German schools
many and good, while others are constantly be?
ing rounded, and where the educated German ele?
ment, ecdealasti al and secular, exons an ever
-The custom in China which allows a criminal
under sentence or death to buy a substitute,
threatens to bc raised fruin the raak of a national
eccentricity to the Importance or an international
complication. It turn3 out that many or the per?
sons executed for the Tien-Tsln massacre were
not the guilty men at all. The mandarins arrest?
ed a few cl tho meaner criminals, careful!? allow?
ed all the rest to escape, and filled up the Hst or
victims with substitutes who were quite reidy to
suffer decapitation in consideration ot 500 taels a
piece. Perhaps a more correct way or putting lt
would be to say that I hese useftil gentlemen were
hired of their respective ramilles, at so much for
the day, and returned arter their heads bad been
cot off to be decently burled. They hid the satis
raction or knowing thai they could provide much
more liberally Tor their wives and children in this
way than any other, and by their vicarious atone?
ment save the government a great deal of dread
rut bother, or course the Western nations will
not submit to be cheated or their demands by any
such fictitious satisfaction as this. They are not
to be robbed off with counterfeit corpses. We are
afraid the mandarins must try again. ,
The Financial Agency of the State.
The bald statements of Mr. H. H. Kimpton,
the Financial Agent of the State, are an inter?
esting study, although they treat millions with
scant ceremony, and sum up the operations of
a year in the formal remark that so many
bonds are iu thc hands of the agent, and so
much money is due to the agent by the State.
As a means of enlightening the public in re?
gard to the operations of the Financial
Agency, the statements of Mr. Kimpton are
worthless. The accounts of a retail grocer
or peauut seller are more elaborate than
those submitted by Mr. Kimpton to the peo?
ple of South Carolina. Yet they show that
enormous sams have been entrusted-to the
discretion of Mr. Kimpton, and point to the
existence of a horrid skeleton in the finan?
cial closet of the State.
The Comptroller-General, in bis report for j
1869, said that $2,700,000 in bonds or the
State were in the possession of the Financial
Agent on October 1, 1869-less $300,000
sold before that time, but not included in
the report Mr. Kimpton, then, began the
fiscal year 1870 with a balance of $2,400,000
in bonds of the State, made up as follows :
RECEIVED BT MB. KIMPTON".
Oct. To Bills Receivable bonds_$ 500,000
Oct. To Interest bonds. 1,000,000
June. To Relief bonds. 1,000 000
Sept. To Land Commission bonds.. 200,000
SOLD BT MR.JKI.MPTON:
Sept. By Bills Receivable bonds... f? 300,000
BALANCE ON It AND.
Oct. L Bills Receivable bonds.$ 200,000
Interest bonds. 1,000,000
Relief bonds. 1,000,000
Land Commission bonds. 200,000
Up to this point the statements of the
Comptroller-General and Mr. Kimpton fully
agree. The accounts for the year 1S70,
however, tell a different tale. During that
year, Mr. Kimpton, according to his pub?
lished reports, received nd additional bonds,
and his only sale Was in October, 1869, when
$700,000 of the so-called Relief bonds were
sold at 70 cents ou the dollar. Mr. Kimp?
ton, must, therefore, have had in his posses?
sion on October 1, 1870, bonds amounting
to $1,700,000, made up as follows:
BONDS ON HAND.
Oct. 1. Bills Receivable bonds.$ 200.000
Land Commission bonds. 200,000
Interest and Rebel bonds. 1,300,000
This same amount was in hand after the
sale of $700,000 bond3 in October, 1869.
Yet at that dale Mr. Kimpton reports that
ho had only the following bonds in hand :
Interest bonds.$ 500?0()0
Relief bonds. 1,000,000
The $200,000 of land commission bonds
have utterly disappeared ! Where are they,
and where are the $500,000 of additional
Land Commission bonds issued under the act
of 1370 ?
We Qnd, then, that $200,000 in bonds,
which Mr. Kimpton reported in his state?
ments of account for 1869, do not appear al
all in the accounts for 1870. The State au?
thorities may have withdrawn these bonds,
and the additional $500,000 of Lind Commis?
sion bonds may not have gone into the keep?
ing of the financial agent. Mr. Kimpton,
if he will, can tell.
It is very clear that there are outstanding
in New York or elsewhere $700,000 of Land
Commission bonds, and $1,500,000 of other
State bonds, upon which Mr. Kimpton has
a claim of $880,443 for monies advanced by
him to the State. What other claims there
may be, Mr. Kimpton's accounts do not
show. Now, it is evident that the State
must redeem these bonds by paying the
amouuts borrowed upon their security, or
must allow the bonds to be sold to pay the
advances. The State will have to pay the
money or sell the, bonds. The bonds may
be retained and cancelled, if the money be
paid; but until that money is paid, the bonds
are a legitimate part of the debt of the
State. Yet, as we have already shown, the
Comptroller-General, in his official state?
ment of the funded debt of the State on
October 1, 1870, does not include the follow?
ing amounts, which are deposited as col?
laterals, or have been sold outright :
Interest bonds.$ 500,000
Relief bonds. 1,000,000
Land commission 1869. 200,000
Land commission 1870. 500,000
We therefore assert that the funded debt
of the State is at least $2,200,000 more than
the amount ($7,665,908 98) reported by the
One more point and we leave Mr. Kimpton.
lo the year 1869 the expenses of his agency
?vere $64,996 71. For the year 1870 they
imount to $94,977 42. And the whole tax
'eceipts of the State for the year 1870 were
raly about $800,000. This may be economy
n financiering, but, at present, we are unable
o see it in that light.
THE bill to amend the General Elections
law, introduced in the Senate by Mr. Corbin,
will have the approval of the people, although
it may not suit the extremists in the
House. It provides that one at least of the
County Commissioners of Eleclion shall be
Trorn each political party; that the ballot
boxes shall be publicly inspected and made
secure before the polls are opened; that the
counting of the ballots shall begin as soon
as the polls close, and continue, without in?
terruption, until the count be completed ;
that the statement of the result shall be
made by the managers within three days;
that the commissioners shall make up and
transmit the returns of the managers within
three days; that the State canvassers shall
publicly determine and declare who are
elected. Such a law, honestly executed,
would, it seems to us, prevent fraud and in?
sure a fair election. The appointment of
managers and commissioners in the sole in?
terest of one party, the stuffing of ballot
boxes, and any cooking up of the returns,
would be practically impossible. Mr. Cor?
bin is doing good work for the State.
THE way tb lay the axe to the root of the
tree is to abolish the office of Land Commis?
sioner, and stop all appropriations. In this
way we may hope to touch bottom aud get
at the truth. The Land Commission has
made somebody rich; but it has done
nothing for the homeless and landless people
of the State. It is a sham and a delusion,
and deserves to be wiped out of existence
Perhaps some independent member of the
General Assembly will take an early oppor?
tunity of finding out what has become of the
$700,000 in bonds of the State, issued for
the Land Commission. This would be a
good beginning in the way of ferreting out
the facts and makin? a Ires ii start !
THE Lauren8ville Herald does not propose
to go into an argument on the proposed re?
enactment of the usury laws, but simply says
that any such legislation is after the manner
of the dark ages, and contrary to the spirit
of the times. It says that it i? absurd to ex?
pect lenders of money to come to the terms
fixed by State laws, and that circumscribing
capital by State enactmout will drive capital
away. Well and tersely put !
THE TJnionville Times desires that par?
ticular notice.be taken of the fact that while
June Mobley, one of the negro members, and
Walker, a captain of militia, are absent
from Union County, the colored people are
quiet and peaceable, but as soon as they re?
turn, all the negroes ia the county become
riotous and insolent. Our contemporary
lays upon Walker and Mobley the whole
blame of the holiday troubles in Union.
OTHER WORLDS THAN OOHS. THE PLURAL?
ITY OF WORLDS STUDIED UNDER THE
LIGHT OP RECENT SCIENTIFIC RESEARCHES.
By h ?chard A. Proctor, B. A., F. R. A. S.
New York : D. Appleton & Co. 1871.
The plurality of worlds is a subject ever
new and ever old; one which men in all
ages have delighted to discuss, while it is
associated in the most intimate manner
with the progress of modern science. New
discoveries heighten the interest which
otherwise might fail, and, as Professor
Proctor remarks io his preface, arguments
which were hypothetical thirty years ago
have become certainties or been-ttlsproved,
doubtful points have been cleared up, and,
lastly, a new mode of research has been de?
vised, which has not only revealed a uumber
ef surprising facts, but promises to work yet
greater marvels In tho years which are to
come. Tho object or the present work is
not solely to establish the thesis that there
are ocher worlds than ours, but to present,
in a new and an interesting light, thc
wondrous discoveries which have rewarded
recent scientific researches. We shall not
attempt to give as much as a sketch of its
contents. It is sufficient to say that it
joins to the precision of statement and rea?
soning required in a scientific work, an inge?
nuity of theory, a copiousness of illustration,
and a reverent spirit, which make it as at?
tractive to the general reader as to the more
laborious student. The chromo illustrations
lend a* novel charm to the work, which we
commend with confidence to all who recog?
nize the significance of the innumerable va?
rieties of cosmical structure disclosed by
modern researches, and who are inclined, for
amusement or a more serious purpose, to
examine into the resemblance which may
exist between our world and the myriad
spheres surrounding it on every hand.
