Better Era Approaching; v
Wituin a few months the political sen?
timent of the country 1ms very peroe'pti
hly hecomo more conciliatory nnaV just
towards the Southern State?.; The in?
crustation of a bitter prejudice' and hide?
bound bigotry has been broken through,
and the last Congress, which assembled
ready,to go. to any extreme of so-called
legal expression, which has usually
meant persecution and oppression of the
South, rounded od its action before ad?
journment i with an exposition of the
Louisiana 'frauds, with a defeat of tho
nefarious Arkansas scheme, and with a
virtual reprobation of the use of force
in the modification of the Civil Bights
Bill, and in the rejection of the odious
* forco biB. Congress only acknowledged
what it could no longer deny. Public
opinion has, in a large measure, liberated
itself from the control of hacks and po?
liticians of the baser sort, who have
feasted opd flourished in prejudice, and
mado merchandise and profit out of de?
traction. The people have hurst through
the customary trammels, and under the
enlightened' teachings and fearless ex?
posures of the independent press have
moved on far beyond the hide-bound as?
sociations in which they.wcre held. This
advanced position of the masses has
made itself felt in Congress and even
reaohed the Cabinet of President Grant
It is because it is recognized that Attor?
ney-General Williams has been forced
into retirement The new em requires
better men in responsible positions. In?
cumbents of office have to walk the
plank like Williams, or like Secretary
Bristow must show their faith by their
works. His pursuit of the abuses in his j
department of the internal revenue sor
vioe testifies to the quiet but decided re?
volution which is sweeping over the
country. The pressure against Delano
has tho same meaning.
We need not refer to the popular elec- j
tions for confirmation of what we have
said. We have in view rather their ef?
fect on the class which is hardest to move
in this country and the latest to recog
nizo any wholesome change. Office?
holders are prone to take up the idea
that they are above tho people, are prac?
tically irresponsible und their powers
unlimited. Such is the official opinion
at Washington and everywhere until it is
rebuked and taught bettor?a lesson
which it is now oonscious of receiving
every day. In connection with this, the
anniversary of the great event which
heralded the separation of the American
colonies;from the mother country and
resulted in their independence, is com?
ing like another sun, putting to flight
the evil birds of night, dissipating dark?
ness and gloom, bringing light and joy
and healing in its wings. All foel the
awakening of new hopes, all look for the
return of a long lost cordiality between
sections, races and parties.
The Grand Jury.
The report of the grand jury was read
by . Mr. LyBrand, yesterday, before the
Court. The labors of this body have
been long, continued and earnest It
has made a .large number of present?
ments, shouldering in one notable case
the responsibility which properly do
volved upon the City Council. It might
have gone further in certain directions,
but it has done well and deserves the
thanks of the community. We arc
pleasod to learn that it has had an eye to
the country as well as the city, and re?
ports: the roads in improved condition.
Its recommendation to put a prohibitory
tax on the retailing of intoxicating liquor
in tho country is well worth considering,
and a similar measure, if it would only
diminish the vice of drinking here,
would bo hailed with satisfaction by
most citizens of Columbia. The present
grand jury has made a good beginning.
It has important functions. Wo trust
that it will prove equal to their faithful
and fearless discharge when its season of
activity comes round again' in the fall.

holts claims to have ascertained, by most
carefully conducted experiments, that
sensations are transmitted to tho brain
with a rapidity of about 180 feet per
second, or at one-fifth the rate of sound,
and that this is nearly the same in all in?
dividuals; also, that the brain requires
one-tenth of a second' to transmit its
orders to the nerves which preside over
voluntary motion, this amount varying,
however, muoh in different individuals,
and in the same individual at different
times, according to tho disposition or the
condition at the time, and is more regu?
lar tho more sustained'the attention. M.
Helmhohz likewise finds that the time
required to transmit an order to the
muscles by the motor nerves is nearb/
tho same as that required by the nerves
of sensation to pass a'sensation; more?
over, it nasses nearly one-hundredth of
a second before the muscles aro put in

It*i8 needless to say to the reader that
volumes are embniced in that incident.
It illustrates in tones unmistakable, the
impudence and injustice of thousands in
this land of civil and reHgious liberty.
It illustrates the blindness of that igno?
rance whioh fails to realize the true cha?
racter and the true history of the He?
brew -people.* It ignores the lights of
history. Omitting all allusion to the
grand tenets of Chistianitv, in which we
are humble but sincere believers, it sinks
into oblivion of prejudiced ignorance,
the grand truths of Hebrew history for
1,875 years. It failB to grapple with the
sublime truth that to the Jewish race,
more than any other source, wc are in?
debted for the preservation of history,
learning and letters during the centu?
ries of too dark ages?that to that race in
Spain, through hundreds of years, civili?
zation owes its preservation, and other
countries of Europe debts of grntitudo
mountains high in the long road from
barbarism to wealth, elegance and re?
finement. It spits upon the fact that
Jewish beggars and Jewish drunkards
are rare as diamonds. It refuses to know
that the Jewish poor never, in any coun?
try on earth, became a charge to the
Sublic. It forgets that for 1,875 years
ews have, with rare exceptions, been a
proscribed and persecuted race to the
end of the earth, and yet, that to-day !
they are law givers in tho most enlight?
ened, prosperous and liberal countries
of the world. It refuses to acknowledge
that tho Jews have all this time been tho
friends of humanity, the patrons of
learning, of science, of commerce, of
Despite the jibes and flings of un?
thinking men, women and children, no
Hebrew has any cause to hang his head
in shame by a fair comparison with any
other race. "A nation without a coun?
try," they have done as much, and are
now doing as much, the world over, as
any other nation, to break down the bat?
tlements of hate, and spread over the
world the spirit of peaceful intercourse
and true humanity. Tho American
Mason of to-day may go to any Masonic
lodge to tho uttermost parts of the earth
and enter tho portals of that great em?
bodiment of benevolence, and there, as
a friend and brother, tried and truo,
he will find the Jew. Go into the street
seeking alms for the distressed, and tho
lost man to say nay will be the Jew.
These thoughts rushed upon us on
hearing tho incident above related, and
we felt the blush of sorrow tingle our
cheek. It is sad to realize that at this
age mere thoughtless prejudice is
allowed to sway the judgments of our
children in matters so sternly appealing
to,our sense of justice and our know?
ledge. How much better to pluck the
beam from their own eyes and leave the
mote in the eyes of others?
[Dalian (Texas) Herald.
The Troy Times, too, pretending that
all the hate comes from the South, puts
in its malignant thrust at the dying
form of John C. Brockinridge. So does
the Hartford Post; whilo Senator Mor?
ton's organ at Indianapolis fairly exudes
with indecent venom. "When Leo died,
the conduct of the Government and the
temper of the Radical press were mean

expect nothing but a similar outburst of
Saltry rage when the breath leaves

God that this is not the spirit which
animates tho generous masses of tho
North. It is the expiring venom of tho
party of hate and vengeance wreaking
its pusillanimous passion upon the de?
fenseless and the weak.
More Factories and Better Ones.?
The factory men, Messrs. Sampson,
Hall A Co., have secured the water power
at the "Falls" from Squire McBee, and
will proceed to erect another factory?an
immense one this time?for the manu?
facture of cotton goods. It is rumored
that two factories will probably bo erect?
ed?one on each side of the "Falls,"
?where McBec's grist mill and Cagle's
planing mill now are located.
One of those "prominent Southern
Republicans" has been writing to the
Chicago Tribune that the Southern peo?
ple are preparing for another war, and
that the negroes will help them estab?
lish another Confederacy. He concludes
by remarking that "the* only means to
prevent this is the maintenance of the
Republican party South." The absurdity
of this scheme is so apparont that the
Tribune, itself Bays: "We publish these
views merely as curiosities, and disavow
any sympathy or respect for them."
President Grant announces that he
cannot attend the Bunker Hill celebra?
tion on the 17th prox. Naughty corre?
spondents insinuate that he is deterred
by the dread of being obliged to pay his
railroad fare, as on the occasion of his
last visit to Massachusetts. This is in?
correct, however, as tho Government
steamer Tallapoosa lies at the Washing?
ton Navy Yard, and might be utilized.
That vessel is assigned tho duty of carry?
ing the President and family to Long
Branch next month.
If the Republicans do not intend to
nominate Judge Taft for Governor, they
should talk about some other man.
Judge Taft is the only strong man, of
high oharacter and real personal foroe to

Republican candidate. Judge Tart might
be elected Governor. If nominated, he
.would he a power in the land. A small
political brigadier, who runs on a skim

Touohenbd Glass.?The Paris oorres
-pendent WVh8"lX1idb**Wii?sf reclfiljf
wrote to that journal an account of .some
toughened glass, known as. Bastio glass,
which has been exhibited'^jjsfbro thevSo
cicty'fbr the Encouragement of Manu?
factures. Thin plates of tho glass were
thrown on a tiled floor, fronY*> height pf
nine feet, without being broken, and
were afterwards flung against the walls
with considerable force, but without In?
jury. Some pieces were broken with
blows from a hammer, but there was an
entire absence of continuous oraoku from
the fracture. Where tho hammer took
effect the glass lost adhesion and trans?
parency, and was reduced to granular
'particles. No description was. given of
the process whereby this glass is pro?
duced other than this: "The resisting
temper of the Bastio glass is obtained by
menus of a chemical bath, to which it is
subjected when hot from the furnace."
A patent has been taken out for the pro?
cess by the inventor, M. de la Bastie,
and a large building, to cost $025,000, is
now being built for its manufacture. It
is said that this malleable glass can he
used for the manufacture of frying-pans
and other cooking utensils, as well as
for gloss chimneys for lamps and gas
A quiet game of draw, quarter ante,
was in progress, the other evening, at
Chicago. One of the party managed to
get a heart flush, ace at the head, out of
the deck, and hud it in his lap, waiting a
chance to play it. Presently the chance
came. The guileless gentleman counted
out $40 better with one hand, and quietly
went down with the other hand for that
flush. It wasn't there. He had to play
his original hand. Two of tho party
called his $40 better, and one of them in
tho show-down produced the identical
heart flush that he had been at such
pains to secure. He knew it was the
same, for the ace was crimped just as he
had done it. The secret was, that Ira
Wctherbee's dog, "Potscy," had quietly
put his noso in, picked up the flush, car?
ried it around to his friend, wagged his
tail knowingly, and walked oft'.

of his soldiers, to flog and scorch John
Bodine, the owner of the estate, into the
mood of making known the hiding
place of this treasure. They con?

Intection in the Am.?At this season,
the vegetable world takes a new leasei of
life; but to the sensitive1 nnd delicate
members of the human family, it is a
timo of danger and often of great Buffer?
ing. The moisture which rises from the
earth and hangs suspended over it in the
form of morning and evening mists and
fogs, holds in solution, so to speak, the
mephitic elements which produce* fever
and ague, remittent fevers, rheumatism,
and many painful nervous disturbances,
and which aggravate dyspepsia, bilions
nesa and all minor affections of the
stomach and the bowels. This, there?

and purifying operation of the mightiest

to tho weak, and the best security for the
continuance of the health and vigor of
the strong. Now is the time not only t?
protect the system against the common
ailments of the season, but to prevent the
disorders incident to a warmer tempera?
ture. Let not the exhausting heats of
the summer months find you unprepared
to meet them. A course of Hostetter's
Bitters, commenced now, will put all the
physical energies in fighting trim, dou?

repel the causes of disease, refresh the
brain and clear it of all hypochondriacal *
cobwebs, and place the whole physique
in an attitude of defence, with every
available point fortified and guarded ana
as nearly invulnerable to unwholesome
influences as it is possible for the human
structure to be. A29
