Tho Death of Charlea Dickens.
IQ the world of LITERATURE-in the
REPUBLIC OF LETTERS-a bright and
shining light bas gone out-has set in
death to live in fame. Wo aro informed
that Charles Dickens, the eminent no?
velist, is dead. This announcement will
be received with interest by o vast body
of readers, both in Europe and America.
The reputation of Dickens was not con?
fined to England. The civilized world
claimed him in its appreciation and its
sympathies, and now that death has sot
its seal upon bis rich and busy life, many
pens there will be to write his eulogy
to tell tho story of bis life and its achieve?
ments; to speak of bis -wonderful powers;
to analyze hiB great and, comprehensive
genius; to commend, in terms of just eu
Iogium, the high and noble uses to which
be pat bis God-given talents. Wo shall
not undertake this work. Wo shall leave
it to other pens. But we shall take oc?
casion to express our appreciation of this
great writer's services in behalf of a
broad, a generous, and a genial HUMA?
NITY. His humor wos penetrated with a
divine-like Bpirit, and he used bis power
to excite our sympathies in behalf of the
"poor and lowly." We cannot but think
that Diokens bas dono the world a great
Bervice, and that it is better and moro
sympathetic, sinoe suoh a man lived and
wrote. And now that the cable brings
to this country tbe swift tidings of his
death, and we realize the solemn fact
that be is dead, what memorios spring
np and what a gallery of mental portraits
spreads out before the minds of those
wbo have read bis deathless works. Wo
see Pickwick and his Club and Sam.
Weller-Nicholas Nickleby and Squoors
Oliver Twist and Smike, Fagin and
Sykes-Little Dorritt, David Copperfield,
and a numbor of other pictures drawn
by the master pen of the great novelist.
Truly, Dickens, though dead, yet lives
in his great productions!
An informal canvass of the House
shows that Whittemore will hardly get
the seat to which his colored constitu?
ents have returned him. Members very
generally say that they cannot consistent?
ly vote to admit bim when they have
voted at the same session that he is un?
worthy to be a representativo of the peo?
ple in Congress. General Logan will
take the position, it is said, that Whitte
more's ro-olectiou is an insult to the

tory, furnishes a series of strange mete?
orological phenomena. From one quar?
ter we bave accounts of immense rains
and floods, from another tidings of parch?

SPOTS ON THE SUN.-An exchange,
speaking of the remarkable phenomena
revealed to scientific eyes in the im?
mense spots observable upon the face of
the sun, says at length, so numerous are
they (the spots) that they appear as thick
almost as tho pit-marks on the face of a
man pitted with the small-pox. Thoy
seem to bo in n dozen largo groups.
Somp of them seemingly great gulfs or
dark abysses, doubtless far largor than
tho planet on which we live. These
so-called "spots" change from day to
day, sometimes disappearing almost en?
tirely. Their existence presents ono of
the most interesting nnd stupendous of
tho phenomena of the heavens. Their
cause can only be conjectured.
The latest opinion of the savaus is that
they aro simply appearances produced
bj* vast down-rushing whirlwinds, pierc?
ing through the luminous and dazzling
envelope of the sun, known as tho pho?
tosphere, and revealing glimpses of tho
loss dazzling body beneath. It is pretty
definitely ascertained that vast storms of
so no kind exist in tho sun's atmosphere
of an extent and degree of violence far
transcending anything known to terres?
trial experience. One thing only seems
to be certain about it-these great spots
do not apparently diminish tho sun's
heat, at least not to any remarkable ex?
GOOD TIME AT FORDHAM.-Tho racing
at Fordham shows well for tho quality of
horse flesh grown among us, and
unanswerably indicates that we have the
first great necessity for tho cultivation of
this sport. Two heats of tho mile race
wero run in 1:47, which is good time.
The Derby-a mile and a half-was won
this year in 2:45, and this is not up to
the timo of the Fordham milo in 1:17.
Ot' courso tho nddition of hnlf a milo to
a course cannot in all cases bo fairly
calculated as simply an addition of half
the time of the raco that is only a milo
in length; but if it is far from that there
is a want of bottom. Tho Derby time
would givo 1:50 for a single milo, while
tho Fordham time would give for a courso
the length of tho Derby 2:10j.j, as
against Kingcraft's 2:-15.

A Paris despatch states that a biro oc?
curred in tho beautiful forest of Fontain?

tainbleau turned out in largo force aud
succeeded in checking tho flames.

COLUMBIA, -S. C., Juno ll, 1870.
INDIAN SrEEcn-RED CLUOD VS WASH?
INGTON.-The following is Red Cloud's
speech to tho Secretary of the Intorior:
I came from where tho sun sets. You
were raised on chairs. I want to sit
whero the sun sets. (Hero tho Indian
warrior sat upon the floor in Indian
fashion, aud proceeded.) The Great
Spirit has raised me bia way. Ho rained
me naked. I run no opposition to tho
Great Father who sits in the White
House. I don't want to fight. I havo
offered my prayer to the Groat Father
so that I might come here safe and well.
What I have to say to you, and to those
men, and to ruy Great Father, is this:
Look at me. I was raised where the sun
rises, and I come from where he sets.
WhoBe voice was first heard in thia land?
It was the red pooplo who used the bow.
The Groat Father may be good and kind,
but I can't see it, I om good and kind
to tho white people, and have given my
lands, and have now come from where
the sun sots to seo you. Tho Groat Fa?
ther bas sent hh people out there and
left mo nothing but an island. Our na?
tion is melting away like the snow on the
side of the hills, whore the sun is wnrm,
while your peoplo are liko tho blades of
grass in spring, when summer is coming.
I don't want to see the white people
making roads in onr country. Now,
that I have come into my Groat Father's
laud, seo if I have any blood when I re?
turn to my home? The white peoplo
have sprinkled blood on the blades of
grass about the lino of Fort Fotterrnnn.
Tell tho Great Father to remove that
fort, then we will be peaceful, and there
will be no more trouble. I have got two
mountains in that country, Black Hill
and Big Horn. I want no roads there.
There have been stakes driven in that
country, and T want them removed. I
have told theso things threo times, and I
now have como hero to tell them for tho
fourth time. I have made up my mind
to talk that way. I don't want my re?
servation on tho Missouri. Some of
these peoplo hero are from there, and I
know what I say. What I hear is that
my childron and old men aro dying off
like sheep. Tho country don't suit them.
I was born at tho Forks of tho Platte.
My father and mother told mo that the
laud there belonged to me. From the
North aud the West the Ped Nation has
come into the Great Father's House.
We are tho last of tho Ogallalas. We
have come to know tho facts from our
father, why tho promises which have
been made to us have not been kept. I
want two or throe traders that we usk
for. At the mouth of Horse Creek, in
1852, there was a treaty made, and the
man who made that treaty (alluding to
General Mitchell, who performed that
service for the Government,) told me the
truth. Goods whioh have beon sent out
to me have been stolen all along the road,
and only a handful wonld reach mo to go
among my nation. Look at mo. Here
I am, poor aud naked. I was not raised
with arms. I always want to bo peacea?
ble. The Great Spirit bas raised you to
read and write, und has pot papers be?
fore you; but he has not raised me in
that style. The men whom the Presi?
dent sends us, soldiers and all, havo no
sense and no heart. I know it to-day.
I didu't ask that the whites should go
through my country killing game, ?ind it
is the Great Father's fault. You are the
peoplo who should keep peace. For the
railroads you are passing through my
country I have not received even so much
as a brass ring for the land they occupy.
I wish you to tell that to my Great Fa?
ther. You whites make all the ammuni?
tion. What is tho reason you don't givo
it to me? Are you afraid I am going to
war? You are great and powerful, and I
am only a handful. I do not want it for
that purpose, but to kill game with. I
supposo I must, in time, go to farming,
but I can't do it right away.
Each sentence of this speech was re?
ceived with loud grunts, denoting hearty
applause, from the Indians present.
On the banks of the Fox River, forty
miles from Chicago, is the city of Elgin.
Built upon tho sides of the hills, that
rise from the river on either side, and
peoplod largely by an intelligent and
thrifty population, few towns, West or
East, surpass it in general attractions.
Hero are located the works of the Na?
tional Watch Company, that employ a
capital of nearly $1,000,000, and a force
of 500 hands. It is wonderful, indeed,
that in the second year of their sales,
they should find a ready market for
$500,000 worth of movements, on cash
terms, in competition with forojgn goods
offered in the market on long credits, ns
well as tho products of older and well
established manufacturers in this coun?
try. Tho secret is this: Whercvor Elgin
Watches aro sohl, they make for them?
selves a reputation for superiority over
all other watches sold for tho same
PRESERVING MILK.-Asimple method
of keeping milk fresh for a loug timo is
now extensively practiced in tho vicinity
of Paris. This consists merely in add?
ing to each quart of fresh milk, before tho
cream has risen nppn it, about six grains
of bi-carbonito of soda or potash, and
then placing tho milk iu bottles, which
are to bo corked for four hours, in a
water-bath healed to a temperature of
about 190 degrees, taking oaro not to go
boyond this limit. When the bottlos arc
removed from tho bath, thoy aro to be
inndo perfeotly tight by coating tho cork
with wax, and the milk can then bo kept
a long timo unchanged.

CHURCH ETIQUETTE,-We quote from

As to-day is Sunday, and many we
know of are not quite BO pori oct in chu rob.
etiquette, which should guide them in
attending divino worship, we moy re?
mark, first, that there is no etiquette for
any place like etiquette cf common
Rt??so; it avails when the rulos of the
Chesterfields and the Hickmans often
ranko ono ridiculous. On entoring a
church, thon, with a Indy, precede her
when ascending and descending stairs,
as also in seeking a sent. In the lntter
caso, it is especially polite-you act as a
sort of shield to her modesty, and then
you Have her tho confusion of selecting a
pow. It is proper, if you aro a believer,
to knoel or stand nt prayer, according to
the onstom of the church. To disregard
these is vulgar-ot least, it shows too
muoh false pride, or too little reverence
for the requirements of Christianity.
Excessive whispering during service is
decidedly vulgar, rt is somotiinos ne?
cessary to address an under-tone remark
to your companions, bat seldom. Listen
to the service, especially the sermon.
In this age of church opera, called music,
you cannot help hearing that part of the
oeremony. It would woko up a Van
Winkle. But the sermon you may not
sleep over or disregard. It is wrong. Ap?
pear to hear, if you do not. A good way
is, when the minister is dull and you
can't liat?n-which happens often enough
-to make a rule to atudy phrenology;
examining the bumps of heads before
you. An hour may bo passed thus po?
litely and pleasantly. If yon chow to?
bacco, do not uso it in church. It is
annoying to those around you, then the
saxton gives you jesso. Never leavo
church daring service, unless it is abso?
lutely necessary-ns in sickness, a house
on lire, or professionnl. It is vulgar to
como too Into. Sometimes it is unavoid?
able; a person wishes to display a new
dress, watch chain, or perhaps a beau.
It will occur sometimes that a poor
goose wants to be driven from his seat
thon it is proper onough also. Theso
causes and the like excuse lute coming,
and the congregation endure them. Any
other delay is unendurable. Dress ns
plainly as possible. We don't mean that
a lady should appear in her morning
wrapper, nor a gcntlemnn in his shirt
sleoves. A nico medium is tho thing in
all matters-Indies should not be takon ;
for milliner's show-cases, nor gentlemen
for bo-jeweled nud nock-tied monkeys.
A plobian goes to church to show fine
clothes; an aristocrat to show respect to
God. In entering and in leaving tho
houso, do not walk too slow, like tho
shoddies, nor too fast, liko tho bashful.
In tho one case, people ridicule you for
affectation; in the other, there is danger
of knocking down the pow, or running
over somebody. "Hasten slowly."
When you look around too much in
church, people think you want to show
your profile, or that you want to attract
attention to your style, or that you wnnt
to marry, or that, like poor wheat, there
is not euough weight about your head to
keep it Btill. Don't look too pious in
church either-it is ns suspicious ns too
much levity. Religions worship is nei?
ther a joke nor an emetic. If you feel
extraordinarily devotionnl, begin to
think of putting somethiug in the trea?
sury, and it will shorten your face quick?
ly, and spread over it the pleasant look

MAKING; A Wmi, UNDER Prjwcronnp.
From "Andrews' Reminiscences of a
Georgia Lawyer," we extract the follow- j
On tho night of the 13th November,
1833-1 beli eve that WOB the time of "the
falling stars"-an obeso old farmer was
lying on bis sofa, having a negro woman
scratching his head, two children piok
ing his ears, two rubbing his hands and
two bis foet, when ho was startled by
one-who had been looking out of tho
window-exclaiming, "lor, master, some?
thing is on fire, soe how tho oonls are
flying." Kicking and kuocking away
tho seven attendants-besetting him like
ants around a dead worm-he went to
tho door, and seeing the grand pyro?
technic display, sent the whole seven to
call Phillips, the overseer, whom, when
ho came, he ordered to call the negroes,
and making him select four of the strong?
est, ho had himself lot down his well, and
tolling Phillips to stand at tho mouth to
transmit his orders, proceeded shouting
from his lower deep, "Phillips, rank?
Tom and Poter get on the gin-houso,
Snm and Bob on the barn, Joo and Jeff
on the corn-crib, and mako the others
oarry thom water." "Phillipsl" "Sir.
"Have thom foddor stacks in the gin
houso field caught yet?" "No, sir. "
"Phillips, aint tho grass field, on tho
South hill, all in a blaze?" "Not yet,
sir; the fire goes out beforo coming to
the ground." "Phillips, have a bottle
of that old poach brandy, in the cellar,
ient down-for hot ns it is up there, it is
mighty cold down bore-aud give tho
niggers what they want, for it will all be
burnt up before day." "Phillips, do you
smell auy brimstone from the fire?" "I
thought, sir, I had a whiff of it just
now." "Phillips, if any of that fire falls
down hero and should miss me, it will
scald mc like a hog iu a scaldiug tub, nt
loast it will parboil the lifo out of me.
Phillips, get pen, ink and paper, (after
they were brought ho proceeded:) Phil?
lips, cnn you writo on tho bench whero
they set the water-bucket?" "Yes, sir!"
(After dictating a short will, Phillips said
ho would have him come up and sigu in
the presenoe of witnessess, when he pro?
ceeded:) "Phillips, what is the stato of
the fire?" "Pouring like it was raiuiug
ten thousand brush-heaps." "Can't come
up yet, Phillips. Phillips, have you
heard Gabriel's trumpet?" "Not yet."
"Well, let mo know the first toot you
hear, that I may have timo to pray a lit?
tle." (Phillips proceeded to tell him
that there was no uso making a wili, no?
how, for all his property would be
burned, and it would bo of no use.)
"Well, Phillips, I forgot that." The old
peach having began to operate, gave him
Dutch courage to como up, having first
had tho wagon-body brought near the
well and turned upside down, under
which he crawled. Phillips proposed
having straw put under the body for him
to lie ou; he objected, "because it would
take fire too easily." But, ordering
sheep-skins and blankets, ho gave direc?
tions to havo himself let down agaiu if
the wagon-body caught fire, and went
into his M-oolen nest under it. The re?
action from tho warmth and soothing
qualities of the emptied bottle, wrapped
him, with his fears, into forgetfulness,
until tho blessed sun, rising beforo the
sleeper, blotted out all appearance of the
falling fire. Hint will was never pre?
