. Charleston Delivered."
[From the St Louis Republican.]
It would be hard to imagine any local poli ti?
cs! event that could give more general satis?
faction throughout the land than the signal
defeat of Radicalism in the municipal election
at Charleston last Wednesday. The people of
that city have endured the. lotti oppression of
negro and carpet-bag rule imposed on them,
with a patience that was little less than heroic
Such au oppression In any Northern city would
have produced au insurrection long ago;.but
the Charlestouians have submitted to it almost
without a protest, because any act of opposition
would have been voted a revival of the "rebel?
lion," and been put down at once by federal
arms. Their patience has at last been reward?
ed by the decisive overthrow of the oppres
" sing power In their recent election. The Citi?
zens' movement was not a white movement:
i Its ticket contained the names of several re?
spectable and worthy colored men, who are
elected along with the other candidates. The
triumph therefore ls simply a triumph of de?
cency and honesty over a local party that
knows little of either.. The whole country
will rejoice with'the people of Charleston over
A Glorious Triumph.
[From the Boston Post.]
"*The mannerof the election was conceived
in the iniquity of Radicalism. November ls
the usual period of the election, but the Con?
servative or Reform party having carried the
city last year by a small majority, the time of
holding the election was changed by the Radi?
cal Legislature to August, as a season when a
Eortlon of the white population would be like
y to be away from the city. This .act of the
Legislature was so grossly outrageous that
even Governor Scott was compelled to apolo
flze for approving it, by say in jr lhat he had
one BO through inadvertence. The Conserva?
tives, however, accepted the situation with
-u out remonstrance, and without dismay, and,
Vwlth a courage which doe3 them great honor,
foughi the battle of freedom and of honest
and representative government, and tri
umphed gloriously. The contest, however,
-was against great odds, and the victory was
won only by undaunted effort.
The Contest Won by Colored Votes.
[From the New York Son. ]
Next In significance to the main fact that
1 the Republicans were beaten "at the Charles?
ton, S. C., election, stands the other fact that
tfc'W were beaten by colored votes. General
Wagduer, the successful candidate for Mayor.
IQ hts speech to the crowd which congratulated
him on his triumph, took pains tb thank. In
the most cordial terms those colored voters who
.supported him, and assured IL.m that their
race should be fairly and proportionately re?
membered In the distribution of the offices at
A Warm Tribute .from Georgia.
[From the Brunswick AppeaLl
God bless the old city, tben, from Sumter to
St. Michael's, from Border ta "Battery." May
she "shine like the daughter of Tyre with a
?tft." May she be blessed more in . "Her tatter
end than her beginning." This triumph In the
' -City of Charleston ol conservatism and InLeg
jU-y over vi?auous corruption and blackguard
role, is one which must find welcome and ap?
probation wherever good men dwell and de?
cent deportment is esteemed. -We leel con?
vinced that this return to righteous rule and a
.-decent regard for the opinions of mea bodes
well for- , Charleston and Carolina. We
are sa tis Qed. that the .acknowledged pru?
dence anet; ?good sense of the Charleston'
people-so courteous, so Just, so bravely wed?
ded to fair play-will see to lt that the ai?sire
of the city are conducted with such even?
handed Justice and with such manliest advan?
tage, to .all her dwellers, that her colored popu
-latlon will not be amongst the' last to discover
in ber renewed prosperity that their best tm d
truest interests are subserved lu all the sub?
stantial requirements of an honest life, and an
-enhanced civilization. It will be thus at
^ Charleston, under the very guns of Sumter,
that the colored people of the State will learn
" Jf "rebel time?" are gone, "rebel men" none
. . the less know how to- be Just an'd"generous to
' their colored neighbors and former slaves.
That they will not bold to the ear and break
- in the fulfilment. That ll they promise the
~W colored people schools and raise funds for the
same, no pilfering hand will spoil the fund and
.spare the leaching. That if they promise the
colored people pease, no skulking ecoundrel
will dog the steps ot their honest nelghore,
making of them nests of- bitter enemies to the
colored man who could justas well have had
In their stead troops of friends. That, when
they promise land they have lt to give and
dna necessary no tortuous land commission
or evil minded legislative devices by which
adventurous scoundrels axe helped to "plun?
der" and palatial dwellings, whilst their color?
ed voters and viet ima are whistled off and on
with renewed and empty promises. Close np!
Carolinians, close up ! and win a victory com?
plete and enduring for decency and order
from mountain to seaboard, from Caesar's
Head to Hilton Head.
4. The Ball Opening.
[From the Baltimore Sunday Telegraph.]
Poor South..Carolina at last sends up one
cheerful shoat. Crushed, bayoneted, pinned
to Lie earth by the most cruel tyranny that
beastly Ignorance and licensed lust could In?
flict, she hardly dared to hope for her own re?
demption, save through the luture triumphs
of her sister States. With her intelligence dis?
franchised; her high places filled with vulgar
ruffians;semi-savaire negroes and Irresponsible
carpet-baggers plundering what little sub?
stance escaped the ravages ot war, or had been
gathered by the Industry of her people; domi?
neered over by. an alien and hostile Governor,
backed by a drunken black militia; se! cted
as the special sacrifice to Radical wrath;
humiliated to the position of a Poland, the
most abject province of a cruel and vindictive
national government: ber laws made by brutes
and enforced by bullies; her substance wasted
and her ballot-boxes made the mere tools of
?the partisans who have ruined her, what hope
could, she have, from lier own efforts or what
could dispel her despair, save the promise ol a
future national reform ! Yet with all this she
bas struggled stubbornly for lilejpand on Wed?
nesday last ber eCort was crowned with unex?
pected success. Radicalism was beaten on that
-day lu Charleston, the government of her
principal city was rescued, and the stone the
Democratic builders had for the lime being
neglected, has become the first stone in ihe
edifice to be consecrated lathe fail ol 1871.
9 The 1 urning Point.
[From the Newberry Herald ]
We heartily congratulate, the metropolis In
the late glorious work of stemming the tide
ot corruption which has for so long a time
been beating against her noble Institutions.
In the electloa of Mr. Wagener and the Citi?
zens' ticket, there will be an end to misrule,
turbulence and-an Infernal system of taxa?
tion, which has cried "give, give," to sup
Kprt - In Idleness an hundred }more or less)
newly created officials and strappers, until
many a widow has been robbed of her home,
and restricted in the education of her children,
in order to meet the tax. But a change has
come, and the solid men of Charleston will
now spiritedly begin the work of recuperation.
Like the results ol Fort Moultrie lu '76, we
ii ope that this moral victory in '71 may also be
the key or turulng polut for the State's re?
Three Times Three for Charleston.
[From the Lexington Dispatch.]
The importance ol the result cannot be over?
estimated tor Charleston. The effect on Radi?
cal Insolence and corruptlou throughout the
State must be most salutary. Had lt not been
for the presence of United States soldiers the
-conservative Citizens' party must have yielded
the election to violence and fraud, unless they
had been prepared for a fight. We have only
room to add : Three times three for dear and
.glorious old Charleston !
THE COMING QUEEN'S CUP YACHT RACE.
American yachtmea have already, probably,
won the race for the Qufen's cup, in anticipa?
tion. AB announced by cable, the Livonia,
which was built for the race under Commodore
Ashbury's supervision, has been beaten so bad?
ly by English yachts, as to make necessary her
withdrawal from the coming contest. The
Cambria, which has been substituted for the
Livonia, beat the Dauntless In the great ocean
race last year, but was beaten by several
American yachts In the subsequent contest.
As it has been reported that Mr. Ashbury had
made the lines of the Livonia to conform
1 somewhat to American models, our yachtmen
will be ready to declare that our builders are
. neither to be equalled nor Imitated.
CRIME IN THE STATE.
The Vt vberry Homicide
The Herald sa, r. "Noah D. Me tts, charged
with the murder of George Poster White, was
last week arrested and lodged In jail. He
confessed the deed, and stated that the act
was committed because Mr. White prevented
his (Mett's) marriage with a young lady who
resided with the family of deceased. The un?
fortunate man was killed ou Saturday night as
he took a Beat in the porch after supper. We
learn that Mr. Elijah Pitts is charged with
complicity in the case after the committal ol
the act We learn that. Hr. Pitts has been ar?
rested, and ls now in jail, as. being accessory
to the murder after tue act.''
The Fruits or jealousy.
The Columbia Union says : "An unusual ex?
citement was occasioned on Arsenal Hill, on
Wednesday, by a mulatte mau, Damed Charles
Davis, shooting his wife. The facts are as fol?
lows : Davis'leu his wile about two years ago,
and went to Florida, arriving back here Sun?
day last. Yesterday he returned to the house,
and calling his wife into a room, locked the
door upon her, and a scuttle soon followed, the
screams ol the woman attracting the attention
of the neighbers. one of whom, when.she
reached the place, found Mrs. Davis with her
head on one of the windows, and holding off a
pistol, which Davis was endeavoring to
point at her.. The parties finally, wrestled un
ill they reached . the street, when Davis' suc?
ceeded in throwing her upon the ground,, and,
holding one of her hands, he discharged two
barrels of tbe pistol at her while she was- in
this situation, one ball taking effect in the
groin, and the other in the thigh. ' Policeman
ynum attempted to arrest Davis, but, being
unarmed, was unable to do so, he refusing to
be arrested. About this time, Deputy Sheriff
Sill came upon the ground, and between them
Davis was secured and lodged in jail. The
nature.of the woman's wounos had not been
ascertained when our. reporter left, but
enough was known to pronounce them very
serious if not fatal. The whole matter arose
THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS.
A corr pondent of the Aiken Journal says :
"The corn crop, though Injured some on thin,
unaided sandy lands, which are late maturing,
will stlil .be large; and we will see what we
have hot seen since the the wur-scores ot far ?
mers having enough and ho little to spare. Cot?
ton baa-not escaped"injury, but with late and
propitious seasons will-do much to recover its '
loss. Gardens have suffered severely, so much
so in fact that in nearly any of them you can
get as many vegetables as you wish cooked,
as lt were, done up brown."
The Lexington Dispatch says : We had an
opportunity on Monday ol hearing from most
neighborhoods of this county. Farmers gene?
rally say the crops, both cotton and corn, have
been cut off one-third. Many say they are cul
off one-half. We have had rains in nearly all
sections during last ten days, but it ia too late
to do much material good. Our people at
least have the consolation of knowing that
they are freer from debt than any county in
the State, and whatever they do make will be
enjoyed by themselves."
A correspondent writing irom Walterboro'
says: "Our provision crops are generally
good, though in some sections they have But?
lered, and are suffering irom drought. We
will not have to buy any provisions next year.
Though I have seen some colton crops which
are suffering from rust and drought, they gen?
erally promise a good yield. I was hu ut fa g on
Friday on A3hepoo; the earth was so dry that

INSURING THE FAIR SEX.
Leading Insurance Companies Refusing
to Accept Risk? on Women.
Surprise has been caused by a distinction
which certain insurance companies have made
in regard to insuring women against accidents ,
onTallroads and steamboats. These^trfpa^l
ni?s have refused to issue policies tor women,
on the ground that when an alarm of Ar?is
raised on a railroad car or- steamboat the
ladles are BO much terrified, that accidents are"
almost sure to follow. Statistics show' that
losses from this class of accidents are far In
excess of the whole amount of premiums paid
for insuring women. With Insurance compa?
nies, as with other corporations or Individuals,
the .rule of seli-preservatlon is the great law
governing their actions. Bisks against killing i
outright are stii 1 accepted, the objections being
confined to minor injuries by accidents, lt |
has been proposed to get around the difficulty
by increasing the rate o? premium, and this
course perhaps will be adopted, although no
action In regard to the matter has been taken
as yet. An Increase ot twenty per cent, on
the rates would, it ls claimed, not more than
cover the difference in the risks of insuring
men or women. An interview with one of our
leading-Insurance m'en developed the follow?
ing facts: Women are physically more frail
than men. Accidents to them are, therefore,
more liable to result seriously, and recovery ls
deferred on that account. Then', again, a
lady's time is usually considered less valuable
than that of a man, ' She can be idle,
and no Important business will be neg?
lected. So she can afford to be dis?
abled, and numerous instances have oc
cuared where women have been slightly
hurt and have feigned serious disablement for
weeks and months for the sole purpose of get?
ting their Insurance. For ways that are dark
and tricks that are vain, in this matter, the ladies
ore oiten peculiar. Physicians naturally hesi?
tate to Investigate this class of cases very close?
ly, and it is, therefore, difficult lor the compa?
nies to cuard against fraud. The leading insur?
ance corporation, the Travellers' Insurance
Company of Hartford, Conn., have, after ma?
ture deliberation, decided that lt does not pay
to insure women against accidents,-and a few
days ago the agents were instructed to "shut
down" upon this class of applications for poli?
cies. When the rule went into effect there
was loud grumbling on all sides, but the agents
ire inexorable. _

NILSSON'S SUMMER RAMBLES.
The Fair Swede's Reception in the
A correspondent writes from the "Wa um be k
House, White Mountains, N. H., under date of |
The fair Swede's arrival here was duly an?
nounced by telegram, which wildly excited
even the quietest of our inmates. From that. |
moment until six the piazza was crowded.
At six precisely the cortege approached, Miss
Nilsson and friends mounted on fine horses,
followed by a travelling carriage and'outriders
for her use when fatigued, and a wagon con?
taining trunks and the favorite dog, a prettv
Skye terrior. She wore a dark blue habit o'f
the-finest broadcloth, turned back to show a
blue and white ?tripped shirt, fastened with
gold battons and dark blue tie; on her h*ad
she wore a soft gray ielt hat, with a dent in
the middle and a golden' pheasant's wing, and I
la her hand she bore a whip mounted with a I
bull-dog's head, moulded in silver. ~
As* evening approached intense excitement
prevailed; would she enter the parlor and min?
gle with tho common herd or not? But yes, the
lamps were lighted and in she comes. We
sang "John Brown's Body,"' "Grasshopper on
a sweet potato vine," "Do you.know the
muffin man ?" and various oilier classic mor
ceaux. Miss Nilsson, with her usual impetu?
osity, jumped from her seat, grasped the hand
of the delighted accompanist, and thanked
him warmly, dedaring that had she not a sore
throat she would Join ner&elt in the song. The
elated musician, then volunteered several
solos, such as "Miss Julia ls very peculiar,"
"I've lost, I've lost my child," <fec. We then
went to Jerusalem, in the most approved
style, and our labors were more than rewarded
when we saw the object of our admiration
laugh till the tears streamed down her cheeks.
The next moving she rode away, we hope
to come.aial?.a?ol?tir day. ^Dressing heran?
proval of and satisfaction with everything and
everybody connected with the Waumbek.
SOUVENIRS Oi' THE VISIT.
When Miss Nilsson had bowed a kind fare?
well to us on the piazza, our first act was to
compare our tokens and trophies. The musi?
cian registered a sacred vow never to wash
the hand she had pressed. One showed a
stone her foot had grazed-In mounting her
.horse, which bore these words: "Nilsson
touched me;" one triumphantly showed tbe
pack of cards-with which she played Califor?
nia Jack; and one cherished a bit of bread
marked by her tiny teeth; another announced
her Intention of appropriating the pillow-case
on which her lovely blonde loons had been
laid, and still another hoped to make his for?
tune by tearing up the plank upon which she
first stepped, converting it into matches and !
selling them at an immense price, with a por?
trait on the Dox, under the name ol Nilsson

boarded the yacht. . Aftir a hearty welcome,
followed without loss of time by the dispatch

left for the shore. The tiring Irom . the bat?

had been bidden by clouts, shone out, and be?
came the signal-albeit, at that same Instant
Lords Sydney and Filzrof, who had meanwhile
returned to shore, ralsec their bats, and that
might be taken as the ignal-for the crowds
which lined the way on luth sides lo cheer our
royal visitors, which tley did most heartily.
Jumping ashore the Cnwn Prince extended

was concerned, there wai no other decoration

At the loot of the staircase dwarf palms
and flowering plants were tastefully set out,
and conspicuous upon a table lay the

which was lo' symbolize to the Imperial
Prince the joy and pride of his German hosts
in receiving such a guest. Everything lu lhe
happy ceremony was to be homely, 'German,
and free lrom theatrical effect. Indeed, the
nearest approach to any intended d?monstra?
tion was to be seen in a groupe, ol little lads,
most of them with the flaxen hair and blue
eyes ot the Northland, who, under the care of

"Wilkomen," rolling out to meet the royal
travellers as they ascended lhe steps and en?
tered the hall. When they bad come in, the
Countess Victoria Berustorff gracefully ad?
vanced, and, dropping a most courtly curtesy,
presented to his Imperial Highness the crown
ot'laurels, pronouncing, at the same time, some
German verses composed for the occasion.
When lhe verses had been-charmingly pro?
nounced, the little Count came forward behind
his elster, and kneeling, presented to the Crown
Princess the great bouquet of British roses.
Here also lhere was a speech to be spoken
trippingly on the tongue. Oount John's brief
metrical address ran In this way:
My roses take, with ivy clasped around
Symbnl of love forever fast sud bound,
On this hl?rh day be welcome, Princess here
Welcome a thousand times, guests royal and
Thus pleasantly and enthusiastically crown?
ed and enriched, the travellers made ihelr
wav Into the house. The Prince and Princess
of Wales shortly aiterwurds took their leave,
and their Imperial Highnesses theu dined with
a select party, twenty-two covers only being
A GRIMAN SERENADE.
After dinner, a very Interesting feature In
the evening's proceedings was a serenade,
given under the direction of Slr Julius Bene?
dict, to their Imperial Highnesses by mem?
bers of various German musical societies es?
tablished In London. Although but little no?
tice had been given ol this ?mended graceful
homage belore hind, lhe response was so
ready that during dinner about a hundred and
filly singers assembled on the terrace In front
of the banqueting hall.
At a given signal, Maurer's "Der Gesang,"
the first of lhe three selected national "lieder,"
was given with wonderful effect and precision.
This was followed by Kreutzer's "An jins
Vaterland," and the 'serenade concluded with
Kalli woda'a stirring melody "Das Deutsche
Lied." So admirably did the members of this
Impromptu Liedertafel sing together under
the guidance of their distinguished conductor,
that it was difficult to conceive that they came
irom different associations, and lt might
easily have been imagined that they had been
in the constant habit of practicing together.
Indeed, four-part singing could scarcely have
been heard to greater advantage under any
circumstances. At the conclusion of the sere?
nade, a deputation of lhe various "Vereine,"
Headed by Sir Julius Benedicl and Herr Berg?
mann, waited on the Grown Prince sud Prin?
cess in the drawing-room, the latter gentle?
man presenting their Imperial Highnesses
with an address of congratulation on the hap?
py termination of the war.
FREE AND SOCIABLE.
The Prince then conversed with members of
the deputaiion. and the steps becoming In the
meantime thronged by the "rank and file" of
the choir, his Highness stepped out ou the bal?
cony, and chatted pleasantly and affably with
many of his compatriots, questioning them as
to their nationality, occupation lu England, and
such matters. On retiring he was greeted with
a thorough German "Hoch," and subsequently
he appeared at an -upper window with the
Princess, when the illustrious pair were met
with another burst of-enthusiastic cheering.

THE WHlRTO?f CASE.
CURIOUS AND PERSISTENT ATTEMPTS
Following; a Victim with a Dish of
[From the Ballimore American.]
Scarcely a day passes that does not bring ont
some new fact or rumor with regard to Mrs.
Wharton's singular mania for administering
potions suspected of being poisonous.
The latest case is that ot Urs. William E. Al?
cock, who resides at No. 267 North Eutaw
street, two doors from the house lately occu?
pied by Mrs. Wharton.
It seems that Mrs. Alcock had agreed to ac?
company Mrs. Wharton in her contemplated
trip to Europe. Something induced Mr. Alcock
to start sooner than at first expected. Mrs.
Wharton was very much disappointed, and
urged Mrs. A. to induce ber husband to walt
for her. Mrs. Alcock called.upon Mrs. W. the
day she was to leave. Mrs. Wharton urged
her to stay to dinner. Mrs. ' A. excused her?
self fer want of time. About the usual dinner
hour, after Mrs. A. had returned, home, a ser?
vant came from Mrs. Wharton's with a dish of
which Mrs. Wharton bad sent her. Mrs. A.
expressed her thanks, and remarked how nice
The servanted : "Mrs. "?..? dotft think
it's nice, and Twouldn't eat U ii I was you."
"Why?" said Mrs. A., "I am very fond of It,
and this looks so nice ?"
"SOMETHING ? IT."
The servant again expressed her want of
confidence in the soup, saying, "There might
be something put in it: somebody might have
put something in it; I don't think lt's good,!'
Mrs. A., however, took the soup, thinking
very strange all the while of the remarks of
the servant, and wondering what it could
mean. Her anxiety finally Induced her to try
the soup, which she did, but verv sparingly.
Immediately after partaking of the soup she
left the house. Alter .getting on the steamer
and continued to be strangely affected during
the voyage-the remarks of the servant about
the soup continually haunting her memory.
Her husband and herself had promised Mrs.
Wharton, who was expected to take the next
steamer for Europe, to walt for her on their
arrival in England, but a telegram from Balti?
more simply informed them not to wait, giving
no explanation of the cause of ber detention.
LETTER FROH MRS. ALCOCK.
Lately a letter from Mrs.' Alcock reached
Baltimore, addressed to one of her friends,
written Immediately alter her arrival in Eng?
land, In which, not knowing anything of the
charges against Mrs. Wharton and ot her ar?
rest, she" refers to ber sickness, attributing lt
to the soup of which she had partaken, men?
of Mrs. Wharton's servant, and says that the
warnings given her about the soup were In her
mind all the time, and had caused her infinite
trouble and anxiety.
THE OLD WORLD'S NEWS.
The Communi?t Trials-Excitement In
thc Court-The Orneen Called on to
PARIS, August 10.
At the sitting of the court-martial to-day,
witnesses testified that they saw Ferry release
convicts and give them arms. Abbe Derchy
said he had served 25 years as.a missionary
among the savages, and never had he witness
j ed atrocities equal to those perpetrated by
Communists. He said that among the mem?
bers of the court-martial, held by Insurgents
in Rocquette prison, "there-were boys of s eve n
LTCU. ami ujn>it?i?d tue ehare he had taken
in the executions of captured prisoners, and
defended them on the ground that they were
Justified by law as a retaliation 'resorted to by
all civilized nations in time of war. The ex?
traordinary statements of the witnesses and
the audacity of the accused caused frequent
scenes o? excitement in the court-room, which
was crowded to suffocation. The president ot
the court was obliged to call on the officers
several.times- to enforce order during the ses?

A CRUEL.FALSEHOOD EXPOSED.
Baron Von der Tann on the Burning of
The Allgemeine Zeitung o? July 12 publishes
the following report by Baron Von der Tann,
commander-in-chief ot the Bavarian army,
in explanation ot the notorious and lament?
able occurrence which was alleged lo have
taken place at Baaeilles, which he disposes
of as decisively and satisfactorily as Col?
onel Podbleski did the monstrous statement
concerning the burning alive of a captain of
the Francs-tireurs in the neighborhood of
Reproaches have been made against the
troops of the First Bavarian Army Corps and
Eighth Pruslau Infantry Division in several
newspapers, more espeoially in the Times of
September 15, 1870. in a letter signed "The
Duke of Fllz-James," and dated "Paris, Sep?
tember 12," to the effect that they acted with
unjustifiable cruelty during the combat of the
1st of September, 1870, towards the inhabi?
tants of Bazeilles. Bavarian and Prussian sol?
diers were said to have set fire to the village
in order to punish the inhabitants for taking
part in its defence. The National Guard, it was
said, had nearly all perished; the inhabitants
having taken refuge in cellars, women and chil?
dren had all been burned. Out of two thou?
sand inhabitants only three hundred had sur?
vived, and lt was related that the Bavarians
had driven whole families back into the
flames and shot women trying to escape. In
order not to oppose a simple denial to such
accusations and to be able to prove their un?
truth by documents, I have refrained from
replying during the war ; but, after the con?
clusion of peace, I made an exact and com?
plete investigation Into the matter concerning
the inhabitants who fell victims during the
fight of August 31 and September 1, and ob?
tained the following Information from the
French authorities, particularly M. Bellemet,
maire of Bazeilles, through the obliging medi?
ation of the German Civil Commissary. Ac?
cording to their official reports thirty-nine is
the total number of killed, wounded and miss?
ing inhabitants of Bazeilles, among whom are
counted two bed-ridden women, three men and
three children, who were burned and suffocated
besides one woman and thirty men killed, miss?
ing and wounded during the two days' fight;
total, I repeat, 39 persons. The greater part
of the village became a prey to the flames
owln? to the two days' mutual cannonade and
murderous street and house fighting of six
hours against the Twelfth French Army
Corps, especially against the division of.
Marine Infantry, in which my corps had 2000
men killed and wounded. If figures sneak for
themselves, I can spare any further words in
justification, and conclude with the wish that
all those who have allowed themselves to be
Induced to make unjust accusations, owing to
exaggerations easy to explain in the first mo?
ment of terror,- will henceforth continue to
show sympathy to the unfortunate inhabi?
tants by abundant help. The maire, M. Bei?
leget, adds'to his report that since the battle
HO to 150 out of 2048 inhabitants have expired
from Illness consequent upon extreme want

IRON-CLAD CHURCHES_At a tim? when so
mach money is spending In building churches,
a subject of deep Interest to all denominations
ls the relative value of the various materials
used for this purpose, and the advantages of
the different Btylea.of architecture. In New
York a warm controversy ls In progress, pri?
vately, between certain old and new school
architects on these matters. The '-Iron-clad"
church built last year In Brooklyn for the Bev.
T. DeWitt Talmage's congregation, and which,
though seating 3200 people, cost only $35,000,
ls attracting much attention, and is the chief
cause of the controversy, since many congrega?
tions not overflowing; wUh wealth but desirous
of.baviog handsome churches, are discussing
the propriety of following the example bf the 1
owners of this "Brooklyn Tabernacle." This
tabernacle was erected in the following man?
ner : A framework of timber was raised and
Inlaid with brick. Boarding was then hailed
on diagonally, outside and In, and fluted Iron
was nailed over this. It ls claimed that the
fluted Iron is a great aid 'to the preacher, as
the.same voice will be much easier heard in
such a building than in one of the same size
and configuration that ls plastered. Conver?
sations held with various leading architects
develop the fact that the majority of them are
greatly opposed to . this new and "flimsy"
