If Thaddeus Stevens is a power in
the Houso of Representatives ot
Washington, his influence at the
capital of Pennsylvania, seems to be
of a less formidable character. It
appears that in the Republican caucus
at Harrisburg, he only received seven
votes for the tho nomination for
Senator. The following despatch to
the National Intelligencer explains:
HARKISBUKO, Jan. 10.-The lie
publican caucus met this evening.
Speaker Hall was chosen chairman.
The caucus remained in session only
half an 'nour. No speeches were
made. Simon Cameron was nomi?
nated for Senator on thc iirst ballot.
Tho vote was as follows: Cameron,
forty-six; Curtin, twenty-three; Ste?
vens, seven; Grow, five. All the He
publican members were present ex?
cept Lancaster County Senators. The
nomination was made unanimous,
when tho caucus adjourned.
Commenting ou thi3 result thc In?
It occurs to ns that if ever men
came to Washington chop-fallen,
humiliated, mortified and distressed, I
the whilom dictator of the House,
and meretricious confrere, who is
the- editor and proprietor of "two
newspapers, both daily," Sundays
.included, must be those men. Mr.
Cameron, who was in private life, j
was not a "great commoner,'' had
not the gift of oratory, occupied no
"bad eminence" through the trick of
the partisan pen, had not urged, wo
believe, the policy of renewing war
upon thc South by an "army, in
three columns, to burn, kill, and
possess the land," had not incited a
mob in Philadelphia to slaughter the
peaceful delegates to a National Con?
vention, had not intrigued to foment"
treason and insurrection against the
authorities of a State, was neverthe?
less doomed to eudure assaults from
Washington, of those who, habitu?
ated by the insolence and diohitorhd
ness of office, thought to crush him
by concerted efforts. How utterly
barren were tho results of the
"pompous prologue to the swelling
theme!" Mr. Stevens repaired in
"pride of power and place" to Harris?
burg. He was followed by tho
editor of the Chronicle, for both of
whom, it was announced by telegraph,
suites of parlors had been put in
suitable state of preparation for the
arrival of men who supposed them?
selves so capable of ridiug the whirl?
wind and directing the storm. Their
levers could move the world of radi?
calism. Tliey came, saw, and were
demolished. Scarce a sign is left of
them. We cannot see how either !
can hold np their heads among the
political characters at thc capital, to
whom they have essayed to give the
nod. What a "lame and impotent
conclusion!" But seven votes in
the Republican caucus for the "great
commoner," hacked by the editor
and proprietor of -two neAvspapers,
both daily," Sundays included! Wc
extend our sympathies ta our woe
befallen brother of the press, and
advise in good faith that he shall not
ngaiii venture into deep water.
RULES OE THR ROAD.-There are
\ many "rules of the road" of which
passengers oftentimes appear quite
i ignorant. The following should be
I remembered, based as they ere on
\ legal decisions: Applicants for tick
"ets on railroads, who do not offer the
! exact amor.nt of change, can be eject?
ed from the cars. Conductors are not
! obliged t make change. "Good for
this day only" on a ticket amounts to
nothing. A ticket is good until used.
Those who lose their tickets must
purchase others, ortho conductor has
a right to put them off his train.
Transgressing the rules of the compa?
ny is sufficient reason for ejection
from the cars. All reasonable de?
mands to show tickets must? not be
resisted, and proper decorum in the
cars is obligatory upon passengers.
No person has a right to more seats
than lie has paid for. Tho leaving of

?Tile Fenian? und Greek Klre.
Th? London Lancet soys the * 'Greek
fire" of the Fenians is no myth. It
is a solution of phosphorus in bisul?
phide of carbon. The peculiar pro?
perties of thc former are well known,
while those of the latter, as being a
comparatively recent chemical prepa?
ration, are not generally understood.
The bisulphide of carbon is a highly
inflammable liquid, colorless and
almost transparent, giving off fumes
of sulphurous acid when burned.
It volatilizes very rapidly at ordinary
temperature, and when its vapor is
mixed with air, and a light applied,
it inflames with a slight explosion.
Its vapor is poisonous. Thc phos?
phorous dissolves readily in the bisul?
phide of carbon, if the temperature
of the latter is slightly raised.
A few weeks ago, tho Liverpool de?
tectives seized, as they were being re?
moved from a house in that town,
three boxes, each containing fifteen
jars or cans of phosphorus. In each
jar were twenty sticks of phosphorus,
each stick being six inches long and
two inches in circumference. Several
bottles of tlie compound of phospho?
rus and bisulphide of carbon have
also been seized, as well as some bot?
tles of the latter, without tho phos?
phorus dissolvcdin it. These bottles
were all of thc same size and shape,
wore quito full, and held about three
pints; had short necks and small
mouths, and were made of green
glass, probably having been manu?
factured for the purpose, as their
sijupe was somewhat peculiar. Seve?
ral experiments have been made at
different times to test the properties
of tho compound. On one occasion,
one of the bottles was thrown against
th*> centre of a high wall. . A loud ex?
plosion followed* and the concussion
.and exposure of the fluid by the bot?
tle breaking were sufficient to ignite
its contents, and a flaming fluid
streamed down the wall, evolving
de., ie fumes of au irritating, poison?
ous nature. A stream of water from
a large hose, which had previously
been pia- ed in readiness, was imme?
diately directed against it, but some
gallons of water had to be pouret
! upon tho wall before the flame was
extinguished ; and even some hour;
I afterward, when the day was darken
I ing, a glimmering light was observ?e
on tho wall where the fluid had been
doubtless given off by thc phospho
rus which had remained adherent, 8(
highly charged with that subsfanci
was the fluid. It was further f?unc
that tho compound ignites most ra
pidly when used in small quantities
spread over a large surface, am
freely exposed; therefore, when prv.r
ed upon cotton, tow, and similar mn
teriuls, it ignited instauUvneously.

Sin: In this morning's Journal,

At this rate, what amount in currency
would bo required to purcliasoa draft
of ono pound sterling? i wish yon
would print some simple rule, where?
by a novice could tell ut any time the
actual value of a pound sterling in
dollars and cents. I would also like
to know tho meaning of the quota?
tion, "Sterling bills are offered by
leading drawers at lOUjJ for sixty
days on Ijondon, and llO^f for short
sight." Asking pardon for troubling
von, 1 am, &c.,
It is difficult to explain thc seeming
mysteries of foreign'exchange to oin?
who is wholly uninitiated, but we will
I venture a few words in reply to the
j above. A sterling bill isa draft pay?
able in English pounds, shillings and
penoe, called "sterling money." A
sixty days bill is payable (with grac<")
sixty days from sight; bids wen; for?
merly payable on presentation ; but
tho custom of grauting three days'
grace after sight came into general
usc in England, and tims "short
sight" is used to designate those bills
legally payable three days after pre?
sentation. The rate (10-n^) for sixty
days' bills, describes the price at
which tho drawer undertakes to pay
n pound sterling f-.) thc holder in
Loudon, sixty-three days after pre?
sentation thre for acceptance. It is
not 10S>J? on thc actual value of tho
pound in the Federal money, but on
a certain conventional rate-$1.4-1.4.
Thus $1.14.4 x 109}/, equal to$4.8G.G,
(omitting fractions) Tho latter is
tho value to bo paid in gold hero for
each pound sterling of the bill of ex?
change. Now, $4.80.6 x 130?? equal
$0.01.8, which is the value in paper
currency of the pound at the rates
given. Tho rule, therefore, is ob?
vious: Multiply $4.44.4 by tho quoted
rato of exchange; that will give the
cost here of ono pouud of exchange
in gold. Then multiply this product
by tho quotation of gold ; that will
produce the cost of the pound in
paper money. This is a vcry simple
process, and ono which, it is proba
ble, every reader will be able to un

COHBECTIOK.-The two paragraphs
j following are clipped from the Balti?
"We are requested to give notice
that the Charles Sumner who shot
himself through the head with a
pistol, shortly before ll o'clock Sun?
day night, in New York city, is not
the Charles Sumner more generally
known as United States Senator
from Massachusetts. The friends of
this Charles Sumner were very much
alarmed on reading tho account of
*he suicide in the New fork papers.
This was caused from tho fact that
their Charles Sumner had been labor?
ing for many years under a serious
aberration of the mind. The origi?
nal disease under widen Sumner
labors is generally known by the
vulgar name of "nigger on the
brain." Some say that this is a life?
long disease with this Sumner; others
that being very fond of African so?
ciety when young, and mingling in it
a great deal, he was induced to imi?
tate some of the customs that prevail
therein. Whichever of theso ver?
sions is the correct one, it is quite
certain that Sumner has not yet blown
hi.-, brains ont. We shall certainly
be the first to inform our readers
when this ( vent occurs.
Wc have also to announce ;is pre?
mature the other report that Thad?
deus Stevens died in Washington, on
Sunday, of a chronic disease with
which he is afflicted. This is well
known to be '"an enlargement of thc
I Spleen." To suck an extent lias this
derangement proceeded in one direc?
tion, that the heai't has been entirely
pushed out of its place, and in the
other tie. organs of compassion
spoken of in the Scriptures have been
so seriously interfered with that their
functions have been almost destroyed.
Stevens will certainly die. Wo have
prepared his obituary notice in this
office at great trouble and expense.
This was mainly caused by the un?
willingness of the people living in
his neighborhood to furnish the ne?
cessary information, the majority of
them avering that he was "possessed
of an evil spirit," and that, after his
death, it would return to plague
them. It was astonishing to find
how general was this belief.
BADLY FOOLED.--The freed people
of that portion of Amherst lying
within a circuit of five or six miles
from the bridge, were badly fooled on
Saturday. It seemed that they were
ordered by some officer of the Bureau
to repair to the bridge on the day
named, to hear, as they understood,
a big speech or something of the
kind from some one of their especial
guardians. This they worein nowise
to omit, under the penalty, as neveral
of them have told us, of a fine of $12.
They flocked to tho spot designated
in immense numbers-men, women
and children-and instead of hearing
a speech, or being interested in any
other way, each one was simply pre?
sented with an Abolition tract, called
the "Freedman," printed in Boston
in 1S(M. The disappointment and
disgust of the negroes was and is very
great at this treatment, and the Bu?
reau has, in consequence, lost much
of its whilom popularity with those
ignorant and deluded people.
AK EASY WAY TO PAY THE DEBTS
OE THE Souriirmx STATES.-Bennett's
Tho fact must not be forgotten
that in absorbing a foreign State we
absorb its obligations. Tho rebel
States, as members of the Union,
j each in ils State capacity before the
war, liad incurred a heavy bill of
State debts, ranging from ten to forty
or fifty millions, more or less, for
each State. Those debts by each of
! Ibo States concerned are now held as
binding upon them, and if we act con?
sistently with the grand issue of the
war, that the rebel States with their
subjugation ceased to exist as States,
wo must at least assume thc debts
which they owed down to the hour
! of their secession from thc United
States. The rights, powers, and
obligations of a conqueror go to?
