The Republic of Liberia is, from late
reporta, in an ezoeedingly bad way. The
people have rebelled against some of the
new President's appointments, and
threaten them with assassination, if they
assume tho cares and duties of office..
While this pleasant otate of affairs exists
within the republic, his Majesty of
Ashantee makes an occasional raid from
withont, and in the last, succeeded in
capturing and carrying off a missionary,
for whom he demends ransom, ?tomo of
the afflicted friends of the gentleman, in
a burst of generosity, have sent this to
tho king, in the shape of "a pair of scis?
sors and a piece of gum coral," and al?
though it is certainly valuing missionary
very cheap, it is to be hoped the equiva?
lent will be accepted. Whether it is or
.not, it w?ll at least act as a damper on
African missionary enthusiasm. No man
can entertain either ordinary respect or
futuro anxiety for a people who estimate
.a asissionary's value, cloth and all, as
Mow ns "a pair of scissors and a piece of
. gum coral. "
.THE BEPORTED ROUMANIAN MASSACBE
-AnL A MUDDLE.-Tho story of the
wholeralo massacre of Jewish men, wo
-men and children iu one of thc towns of
Rounmuc's, bas not yet died out. By
-mail, we have received papers from
france and Germany, purporting to give
circumstantial details of the outrage1,
witb names, dates anda variety of mi na?
tue of the most particular character. At
the same time, we have to acknowledge
a letter from the diplomatic agent of
Roumania, at Paris, utterly douyiug the
whole affair and citing the contradictory
despatches already published. So there
the matter rest?; the dead victims, if
there bo any, cannot speak for them?
selves, and wo aro thrown back upon the
blessed conflict of petty, narrow, jaun?
diced opinions which are rapidly destroy?
ing the dignity and influence of the
press in many places. The only solution
of the Boumanian muddle thus far at?

Cuttle and his great friend Bunsby-"If

."The exhibition in quostion is to be
Iheld in Gratz, the capitul of the ancient
Duchy of Styria, and one of the most
prosperous and agreeable cities in Eu?
rope. It has a population of between
70,000 and 80,000 souls, and lies in thc
heart of "green Steyermark," one of the
very richest rural regions of the Euro?
pean coutinont-a land as famous for fat
fowls as Pennsylvania, Berkshire, or
French Mans, or English Dorking, and
destined to be, at no remote day, us
famous for good red wino as the best
provinces of Franco herself. It is con?

Trieste, the capital and the great sea-port
of the Empire, lying nearly midway be?
tween them. Branch lines also bring it
into immediate relations with tho mag?
nificent agricultural territories of Hun?

vast extent of country a great demand
already exists, and a greater is constantly

GOOD WORKS.-It is too warm for

To get into a sweat in the month of June
or July, is very disagreeable, and every

in cases of absolute necessity. Tho hot?

MB. EDITOR: I see going the round?
of the newspapers, an account of that
alligator-horse, published in the Chroni?
cle and Sentinel, ot Augusta, Ga., as told
by the South Carolina Railroad conduc?
tor. Ho no doubt told the truth, BO far
as he went-that tho animal weighed
350 pounds, and is perfectly docile and
domesticated; works splendedly in plow
harness, and far superior to mules or
horses, and that a fine crop will be raised
by his assistance in cultivating tho
crops. But th"*, railroad conductor
forgot, or did uot ?now, tho most im?
portant particular in the use and econo?
my of this alligator-horse. He lives en?
tirely on pine-knots, of which "Mid?
way," on the South Carolina Railroad,
abounds. -Yet, although he seems to be
completely docile and domesticated,
these exct. ive hot days, about mid-day,
he becomes uneasy and refractory; swal?
lows a pine-knot, makes for the nearest
pond and takes water for about three
hours; when he comes out and is ready
for work. A friend at my elbow, says
he thinks this alligator would be like tho

I A NEW ICE-MAKING MACHINE.-Thero
I comes from Germany a promise of re
I lief from the want of ice. A certain
Franz Windhnuseu, of Brunswick, has
invented a new machine for freezing wa?

process takes place iu a cylinder, "where
tho air is first powerfully condensed, then
cooled by tho admission of water, and
finally expanded till ?ts pressure is ubout
equal to that of tho atmosphere." By
this means, it ia asserted, tho very as?
tonishing result is obtained of lowering
the temperature of the air to fifty de?
grees Celsius (four degrees Fahrenheit,)
so that when conducted iu moderate
quantities into a 6paco through which
water flows, "tho waler ?6 almost immedi?
ately turned into ice, of which euormous
blocks may thus be obtained if desired."
Thc invention will also, it is said, be ap?
plicable to the cooling of largo apart?

The Ledger at length brings qa the
particulars o? a case of negro supersti?
tion in an upper county, of which we
have bad vagqe accounts before:
On Sunday, the 15th day of May, at
the farm of Mr. X Wright, two miles
from Springfield, in Limestone County,
an old negro woman, named Jane, who,
with her husband, lived on said farm,
announced to the rest of the negroes on
the farm, some eight or ten adalts in
number, that siro had just received a
revelation from God that the millennium
was to como on Thursday, tho 26th of
last mouth, and that the mighty "Ship
of Zion" would come-water or no wa?
ter-and tuke all those to glory who
should follow implicitly the directions
she (Jane) would give them, she being,
ns she avowed, the chosen instrument of
God for their salvation. She first
preached a whole day to a largo congre?
gation, aud after having made immy
converts, she commanded them to burn
one-half of all the kitchen furniture,
clothing, etc, they possessed, which
they did in a mighty bou tiro. She next
commanded them to cut up with hoes
ono-half of all their growing crops, which
they did, digging everything up by the
roots. Much of the corn was waist high,
and both com and cotton wero good
generally. She then commanded tbwt
they givo way half of their children,
their wagons, plows and other farming
utensils, which they did, to several per?
sons living near. Thun carno a com?
mand for both sexes entirely to disrobe
themselves and pray and dance the
"Holy Dance," which was implicitly
obeyed. Mauy of the small children,
upon refusing to obey these orders,
were severely beaten, and oue mau, who
refused, was very nearly beaten to death
by tho women. They were then made
to partake of what abo denominated tho
"Lord's Supper," the bread consisting
of water aud salads, aud the wiuu of wa?
ter nud molasses. Sho suid a human
sacrifice was demanded, end accordiugl}
stripped her own infant of its clothiug,
wrapped it in a cloth aud prepared to
givo it as a burnt offering, and would
assuredly have doue so hut for tho inter?
ference of some preseut, who were not
so insane. They were tbeu commanded
to kill all their dogs, which they did, to
the number of fifteen., and after some
two days-these things all tho timo
going on-they were ordered by their
leader to cat of tho putrid carcasses, at
which command they, for the first time,
evinced a disposition to "go slow. '
While they wero halting, their leader
endeavored to show them how lo "go
through a dorg," but her stomach being
of different notion from her head, es?
chewed tho repast, and speedily deliv?
ered itself of such wonderful morsels.
Afc this stage of tho proceedings, Mr.
Isaac Durst, a gentleman living near,
aud who had desired to stop the insano
proceedings before, but know not ex
aotly how to proceed, tobi her husband
she was crazy, aud to get a chain aud
fasten ber, where abo could no longer
do mischief. Shu at once fled, and was
pursued, caught aud Recured, nud at
once the rest of ber followers gathered
round aud seemed, for the first time, to
become awure of tho mischief they bad
wrought. They thanked Mr. Durst
greatly for breaking tho spell that Jane
had thrown around them-went to their
now almost ruined fields and commenced
work again in good earnest-the parties
having kept ami returned to them their
stock, farming utensils, etc. They are
now, however, without tho necessary
apparel and food to enable them to
work successfully. The excitement lasted
some seven or ten days, and all that
time no work of nuy kind was done by
these deluded creatures.

TnE G it A VE OF OSCEOLA.-In tho last
number of Leslie's Illustrated Heirs, ap?
pears a sketch of the grave of Osceola,
the Indian elrief, near the walls of Fort
Moultrie. Accompanying tho sketch is
au account of Osceola's life and death,
from which wo gather that he waa thir?
ty-six years of age nt thc time of his
death, and during his lifo had slain a
large number of white persons iu the
glades of Florida. His father was au
Englishman named Power, and bis mo?
ther tho daughter of a Cherokee chief?
tain. Whilu on a visit to an American
fort, sho was seized and sold as a slavo.
This aroused the anger of Osceola, and
from that time to his capture, ho waged
o bitter war against tho whites. On the
23d of October, 1837, while holding n
conference with General Jessup, near St.
Augustine, ho was seized, with a number
of his followers, and tnkon to Fort Moul?
trie, whore hu Was closely confined nutil
his death. Osceola died as ho had lived,
a hater of tho raco from which his father
had sprung. Ho lay on tho couch iu tho
cell assigned, nud with a frown as dark
as a cloud on his not uuhandsome face,
he folded his arms across his ampio chest,
and thus his Bpirit passed quietly away
to tho happy huutiug grounds of tho
Seminoles, where his bravos were impa?
tiently awaiting his presence.
Dickens was strongly averse to spiritu?
alism, butbuliovod in and practiced mes?

tho most striking features of tho Mystery.
Mr. Dickens waa not only a powerful
maguetizer, personally rolioving pain
and curing disenso, but he sometimes
sent magnetized or mesmerized paper to
persons who wrote requesting him to do
so, and they declared that it acted ns
strongly and beneficially us if ho wore
preseut. This, of course, will bo attri?
buted to imagination, but the power of
so operating upon people's imagination
ns to soothe their pains and cure their
diseases, is u gift of considerable value.
