-Some o? the religious papers are discus?
sing the question of centre aisles in churches.
One "correspondent says: That aisle running
down tbe centre ls an impertinence-a bluu
der. The preacher ought to open bis eyes
upon the bulk ot his hearers, seated right be?
fore the pulpit, and not look straight out upon
a blank space. The subject is worthy the con?
siderarlo n of all students of church architec?
-Our Western Indians were long supposed
to be the greatest experts at torture, but the
Chinese, lt seem?, are more advanceu in this
fiendish capacity. A court at Hoog Koog
lately condemned a criminal to be killed by
wakefulness. The culprit, a strong and
healthy maa, was kept awake constantly for
fifteen days, his suffering for the last few
hours belog of the most excruciating charac?
ter. At last be dropped down and the heart
ceased to beat. Roasting alive is a mercy
compared with such torture.
.." -There appears to be a panic In peanuts at
Norfolk, Virginia. The market (says the Jour?
nal) is in an unsettled aad disorganized Elate.
"The efforts ot holders have been great, aod
the commission men do their duty manfully
. for the interest ol their consignors, leaving,uo
stone unturned to fiad buyers aod customers
for their goods, bravely defending against
any decline, which is to ihelrjcredit." Tbe
paper complains that lt bas beea criticised ia
no unmeasured term's for giving a correct re?
port, confining it to actual fafcts. The "bulls"
in peanuts are down on the Journal. But
the trouble In peaauts, lt explains, ia simply
this: Nobody can get a profit out of them,
and the reason ls, lt seems, that "to nurse and
fight over a laney article for aa uncertain
time on a speculation requires more margin."
All of which sounds very comical when grave?
ly written of peanuts, but the further staLe
" aent that tire receipts of that article for tbe
preceding week have been 3393 bags, sbows
' that in Norfolk peaauts are a merchandise not
to be treated with disrespect.
-Rome ls vastly agitated over the discov?
ery of the body of a lady, which the Tiber
yielded up near the Ponte Molle, one evening
early in the present month. Tbe victim was
young and richly attired. Tbe discovery was
made by a fish vender, who straightway gave
an alarm aod summoned the proper authori?
ties sad tbe pale-faced citizens to the spot.
In the bosom of the unfortunate lady was
plunged a dagger with diamond studded hilt,
and a faint stream ol blood wai discernible on
the silk dress. Profuse black curls huug dis?
hevelled over the shoulders and lace, and on
a plain whtte collar pinned to the dress below
tbe dagger-wound was written ia blood ihe
%terrlble word, "Vear?tta." A short ex
amlnatlon was sufficient to estab'lsh the
lady's Identity, and lt was thea discov?
ered that she was the Princess Catarina
dlCbigl, ene of the most beautiful and bril?
liant of the Itallau belles. She has en ab?
sent from her parents' palace for 6ome days
previously, but pride bad forbidden a publica?
tion of the fact. The cause of the tragedy is
supposed to be explained by the fact that she
was betrothed to Prince Erberto Gluglo, who
loved her madly; but at last her ieeliogs un?
derwent a religious change, and she deter?
mined to eater a convent and take the veil.
This determination aroused the Prioce to such
a pitch of freozy that it is considered almost
certain that he murdered the oue he could not
-That tough outlaw, Hildebrand, announces
his fourth demise. He perished this time in
Southera Illinois, by the pistol of aa avenc
iog policeman. Accordlog to the veracious
account, Hildebrand and his baud of cut?
throats, on Tuesday of last week, crossed the
Mississippi and entered Illiuoi?, ioteuding ?0
travel quietly across the peninsula between
the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, and dually
take up their abidlug-place io Western Ken
tacky. Oa Thursday the party made its ap?
pearance in Pinckneyville, Perry County,
where, being unknown, they felt themselves
secure from pursuit. On Friday the party
became druck and noisy, flourishing their
weapons and threatening to create a cor-,
ner In funerals. At length Hildebrand, be?
coming separated from ihe rest, was over?
powered by numbers aad secured, together
with six knives and two pistols. An officer then
started with him towards the office of the police
magistrate. They had proceeded but a Bhort
distance wheo Hilderbrand suddenly drew a
seventh knife, which he had concealed lu his
left sleeve, and with lt made a thrust at the
officer, striking him in the left thigh and in?
flicting an ugly wound. The officer fell to the
ground, but, recovering himself in a moment,
drew a pistol and fired, shooting Hildebrand
through the breast, killing him almost instant?
ly. His companions immediately fled in the
direction ot Kentucky. The effects lett by
Hildebrand consist of a miscellaneous collec?
tion of articles stolen from the Missourians,
and are said to. clearly establish his Identity.
The locality which be will select for his next
dissolution is not stated.
The People and tbe New Taxes.
The virtual collapse of the popular move?
ment in opposition to the license law is ter?
ribly disheartening, for the reason that it is
an unequivocal indication that the classes
whom taxation moBt BeriouBly aflecls have
come to the conclusion that it is cheaper,
after all, to comply with the provisions or
ah odious law than to encoanter the un
I pleasant hazards of indictment and prosecu?
It is the opinion of counsel of high posi?
tion that the license law is as unconstitu?
tional as it is undoubtedly oppressive. All
Charleston seemed ready to stand in the
breach, and to take the chances of fine and
imprisonment. But, as soon as it was
known that the prosecutiug officers flatly
reiused to suspend proceedings, the opinion
found frank and general expression that re?
sistance was useless, and that the payment
of the license fees could not safely be post?
poned. Even before the meeting of Mon?
day adjourned a number of persons hr.d al?
ready taken out their licenses, Borne of them
paying the whole annual tax in one lump,
instead of the first quarterly instalment,
which would have satisfied tbe legislative
requirements. Everybody felt that the law
was a monstrous injustice, bat tbe majority
were no donbt honestly convinced that they
could better afford to pay license fees
amounting, for the whole State, to a million
of dollars than to run the gauntlet of the
courts. The meeting contented itself wilh
formally advising the people to contest the
law, leaving it with each individual to de?
cide for himself how this should be done.
And here, unless we are sadly mistaken,
ends tbe first seri?os effort 19 foll the State
I Goveroment ia its set purpose of forcing
from the people, this year, the enormous sum
required to meet both its old debts and cur?
It is useless to shat our eyes to the plain
significance of tbis admission. The mean?
ing of it is that the taxpayers, in their dis?
organized condition, despair of successfully
opposing the stringent and unequal fiscal
laws of the State. They will find it bard in
the extreme to comply with the demands of
tbe tax-gatherer; but, until there is more
unanimity of sentiment and determination
than has so far been manifested, the people
must p;>y, aod pay quickly, every dollar of
tax levied upon them. And tbe greater
their distress, and the more painful their
privations, the stronger will be the motive
for bending every energy to the great work
of securing a reformation ot the govern?
ment of the State. This alone caa give the
people,complete relief; and, failing aa ap?
peal to the courts, it is, also, tbe speediest
remedy within the reach of the taxpayers.
The Ku-Kiui Arrests.
Weean account for the continuance of
the Ku-Klux arrests io the up-country upon
only one hypothesis, viz, thal the govern?
ment are anxious io force the white people
into rebellion, and are determined to pre?
vent even a legal an>l constitutional resis?
tance to the wrongful ads of the administra?
tion. We had boped, agaiost hope, that the
appetite of the partisan and demagogue was
appeased, and that tbis poor State would be
allowed aa opportunity of recovering from
the alarms and losses of last autumn. But
it is too plain that the bloody drama is not
yet at an ead ; and that the last Bceoes io
the terrible history will be more agonizing
thaq the first.
Daring the Ku-Klux trials at Columbia it
was proved that there had been outrageous
violence on the part of a few rash men.
Tbese were swiftly and severely punished.
Nay 1 some of the accused were convicted
upon evidence which would not have led an
impartial jury to lind a poor negro guilty of
chicken stealing. At the time that the writ
of habeas corpus was suspended, tbe com?
mun ities so stripped of all protection were
profoundly quiet. The Federal cavalry,
riding through the village streets and across
the parching fields, gathered together a host
of victims, and of these, as we have said, a
number, justly or unjustly, languish with?
in the walls of a Northern prison. When
the trials were over it was thought that the
thirst for vengeance was satisfied; tbe
more especially as the General Assembly
made instant provision for pensioning tbe
widows and orphans of persons killed on
account of their political opinions. Some
weeks ago, however, fresh arrests were
ordered. A number of citizens of Union
were seized and committed to jail, without
any knowledge of the offences with which
they were charged. These now lie in the
Charleston House of Correction awaiting
their trial. Io Chester County arrests were
made ia like manner, and on Sunday Lau?
rens Couuty was the sufferer. In the words of
our correspondent: "There is a reign of ter
"ror in Laurenaville; all the roads leading
"out of town are strongly guarded, and no
"one is allowed to pass." No honest man
can say these arrests were necessary for the
prevention o? crime or the preservation of
quiet The State was tranquil. The farmers,
thinking little of politics, were striving hard
to obtain the meaos of meeting the heavy
demands which the State Government makes
upon them. Tbe merchants were busily
working to increase their trade. The labor?
ers were toiling io the the fields. Undaunt?
ed by excessive taxation aod inclement
seasons, the whole people of the up-country
were endeavoring to make this a prosperous
year. And what has come of it ? They are
harried by the Federal soldiery. They are
thrust into duDgeons. Arrested without
warrant, they are coodemned before their
trial begius. We repeat that ir the Graot
Scott party demanded vengeance upon this
people, they had their till last winter; if they
required'material ror stump speeches and
sensational leaders, they could surely lind it
in the evidence given by their willing wit?
nesses in Columbia. This force3 u3 back to
oar original proposition, that the adminis?
tration, driven to despair by the awakening
opposition ot the Liberal Republicans of the
East and West, are bent on contriving a
i 'new rebellion" which shall enable them to
overcome their enemies by proving that the
time bas not come for Amnesty, or for
Justice, or for the Supremacy of the Consti?
tution. This also will serve the purposes of
the members of the State government, in
whose minds any opposition to any law,
(however it may conflict with the constitu?
tion which they and their party framed,) is
an act of open hostility, which cannot be
palliated or excused; an act no less out?
rageous than the Ku-Kluxism which they
so fondly describe as the characteristic of |
South Carolina civilization The arrests in
the up-country are expected to strengthen
the hands of General Grant by ?demonstra?
ting the existence of disorder in the South;
and they are expected to strengthen Gover?
nor Scott by reminding the white people of
the State that any Bcrntiny of the acts of the
Legislature, or the measures of the State gov?
ernment, will be treated as hostility to the
Radical party, and will subject the people
to a new persecution.
-It remains to consider what, in this
emergency, is best to be done. For the
people at large there is but one safe policy
that of absolute quiet, and an implicit obe?
dience to whatever processes may issue.
This will prove as wise as it is intrinsically
right. But the citizens who have been ar?
rested also claim our care. They are ac?
cused, not of a political offence, but of a
violation of the law. We believe them to be
innocent, and shall continue BO to believe
them until they are proved to be guilty. In
the meantime we can best serve them by
recognizing the broad truth, so often as?
serted in these columns, that there is only
one code of ethics for white man and for
black mao, and that the Democrat who does
wrong must be condemned as sharply as
the guilty Republican. Let it be under?
stood, and let it be shown by onr actions,
that we feel that neither name nor color
should shield any man from the just conse?
quences of bis actions, and the worst forms
of political warfare will, in time, come to
an end, because they will wholly fail of ac?
complishing the purposes fur which they
Dr. Samuel Henry Dickson.
A letter received last evening announces
the death of this distinguished Charlestonian,
which took place at his residence, In Chestnut j
street, Philadelphia, at ten o'clock on Sunday
morning last, after a painful Illness, which
had confined him to his bed for more than
three weeks. Dr. Dickson was about seventy
four?year8 of age.
Dr. Dickson was one of the founders of the
South Carolina Medical College, and, for more
than half a century, was an acknowledged
power in literary circles, enjoying, besides, the
highest honors of his profession. Nor was
the knowledge of his profound ability confined
to one city or State. Throughout the Republic
his learning and scientific attainments were
fully recognized, and at his death he was Pro-1
fessor of the Institutes and Practice of Medl
cine In the Jefferson Medical College of Phila?
delphia, where he succeeded the eminent Pro?
The sad tidings of Dr. Dickson's death may
not have been altogether unexpected, but the
sorrow ol' the people of his native city will be
none the lees deep. To him it was given, In
an eminent degree, to win love as well as com?
mand respect, and his loss will cause acute j
regret in very many Charleston homes. Of |
him might South Carolina well be proud,
and tearfully will her sons mourn his sudden
