Perils of the Arctic Sea.
J'The. following thrilling desciTjition of a
gale on the -'.Arctic : ice-fields is from -the
. new wgrkof .Dr..Kanei '
The. imperfect diet pf the' party was
. showing itself more and more in thejde-xlme-of
their muscular powers -They seem
" ed scarcely aware of it tltemselves; and re
..ferred the difficulty they found in dragging
. and pushingfto somethiBg uncommon- about
the ice or sludge rather than to their own
weakness. " But,"as! we endeavored to re
1 new; our labors through the iriorning fog,
"belted, ia on all sides by ice-fields so dis-
torted sad rugged as to defy our efforts to
cross them, the truth seemed to flash upon
"every one, -i We hadlost the feeling of
hunger, and were almost 'satisfied with our
party broth and the large draughts of .-tca
. wnicn accompamea n. a was anxious to
send our small boat, the Erie, across to the
lumme-hill of Appah, where I knew from
. the Esquimaux we would find plenty birds ;
but the strength of our-party was inaufii-
ciencto drag net: ... - -
We were solely dishartened, and, could
only wait for the fog to. rise, in the hope
ofsomtf smoothef . platform 1 than 'that
dtvhich was -about us, or- some lead 4hat
r might save us the painful labor of track
ing. ' I had climbed the ice-berg, and there
was nothing in view except Dalrymple
xvock, witn its prasRy iace lowering in me
nnknowfi distance." "But I hardly got back
to my boat, before a gale struck U3 from
the northwest, and a floe, taking upon a
, tongue of ice about a mile to the north of
us, began to swing upon it like a pivot
; and close siowly m upon our narrow resting
.place. ,,;; ... . .. :'..':.t i ,
. j!- At first our own floe was driven-, before
;the "wind, but in a little' while it encoun
' tered the stationarv ice at the foot of the
jVery rock itself. On the instant th wDd-
-est imaginable ruin around us. ; . The men
Kprang mechanically each one to his station,1
bearing back the boats and stores; tut' I
gave . up ' for the moment all hope of our
escape. - It " was not a nip, such as is fa
miliar to Arctic navigators; but the whole
platform, where we stood and for hundreds
of yards bs every side' of us, crished and
crumbled and piled and tossed itself niad
lynmder'the pressure.' I"do -hot- believe
that of our little body of men, all of them
(disciplined in' trials,' able to measure dan
ger while combating it I do' not believe
there is one who to this day can explain
how; or why hardly 'when, -.in fact we
'found ourselves ' afloat. ' We 'only "know
that in the midst' of a , clamer utterly in
discribable, through which the braying of a
thousand : trumpets could no more have
beeu heard than the voice of a manwe
were shaken and '. raisedl whirled and let
down again in a swelling waste of broken
hummocks, and as the men' grasped their
bofcts-hooks in the stillness that followed
, the boat eddied away in a tumultuous akreod
of ice and snow and water, , rr ''
We were bome along in Uus manner as
long as the onbroken remnant of the in
shore floe continued revolving utterly
"nowerless. and catchlnir a glimpse every
now Jind then of the brazen ibeadland that
looked down on us through the snowy iky,
At lafet the' floe brought ua against the
. rocks, die looser fragment that hung around
it hfican to.-senaratei and we, were able by
. oars and boat-hoopa to joiea our battered
llMU.flntnio nf tKm. To our iovful
HBinprtseTe found onrse88 m 5 stictch of
the land-water wide erioueh toglve us row-
'"in-fpom,; and with the assured promise' of
laud close anoaa.
. As we neared 'iti we saw the same for
bidding wall of belt-ice as at Sutherland
and Haklu vL We pulled along its margin
seeking in vain either an opening of access
or a nook of-hetter- The gale rose, and
the ice began to drive again; but there was
nothing to b done but to get a grapnel
out to the belt and bold on for the rising
tide. 'The .Hope '-stove her . bottom and
part of her weatlier-boarding, and all the
boats were badly chafed., , It was an awfal
storm; and it was no. without a constant
exertion that we kept afloat, bailing .out
tije'saad Vha- broke Mwe as, and -warding
off the ice with Jxmt-Looks.
At three'-w'dock the - -tide was high
enough for us to scale, the ice-clifF. ' One
by one we pulled np the boats upon a nar
row shelf, the whole sixteen of us uniting
ateacn. pull. . We were to much worn
down to unload; but a deep and narrow
gorge Opened into the cllfls almost at the
spot where we clambered up; and, as we
pushed the boats into it on an even keel,
the rocks seemed to close over our heads,
until an abrupt turn in the course of the
ravine placed a protecting cliff between us
ana. me gaae.. . rye were completely en
v Jnst &B we had bronchi in the last boat,
the Red Erie, and were "shoring her " up
with blocks of ice, a long-used but familiar
and unmistakable sound startled and glad-
fcdened ererjr earfimd a ioekfdera.fleek
ringTliesty for-itidment passed" in Front
of us. V e knew that we must be at their
breeding-grounds: and, as we. turned in
wet and hungry to our long-covetod sleep,
it was only to dream of eergrs and abun
dance. . ' .
We ramained almost three davs in our
crystal treat; gathering ' eggs at the rate
ot twelve-nunarea a day. Outside; the
storm raged without intermission, and our
egg-hunt fcwadit difficult -to keep their
feet; but a memer set of gourmands than

Rape by a Negro.
It appears that -runaway negro from
Kentucky has been committing a number

6f farmers iesidihr in that vjcmuy, which
Be plundered of provisions and whatever
else ot value he could manage to carry off.
On Wednesday night of week before last,
whilst on one of his predatory excursions,
visited the house of M. Daniel Threld-
keld, even miles west of Golconda, . into
which he made ' a forcible- entry through
the window of Mrs. ThreldkeldV room
fshi liri alone wkh hercbjiansB--Mr1. T.
most vigorous 1 resistance on the part of
Mrs. the nnaliy succeeded in choking
her down . and ravishing her person, after
accotppjisbifig which, ;ha roads Jiis way to
Mr. Jackson's a near neighbor of Mrs. T.'s,
broke intd,-' tine "house,' and attempted to
commit a rape on the person of Mrs. Jack
son, who, , by tier screams, soon awakened
her husband, t who-administered to 'the
wretch a severe drubbing; -' In the scuffle
which ensued the black fiend made his es
cape, butwas. captured the next morning.
The crowd assembled and took a vote as
to whetierjie should.be left to the law, or
large numoer ol tnose present decided in
favor gjhf latter Rltemativ an(J,the ne
gro'VaS JfoTcibly rescued from the: sheriff,
takem Tjy 4.hfe niob about four miles back in
the country, and there tied to a tree,
Mrs; Theldkeld was then sent for; who ful
ly identified him as the man who had vio
lated her person on the night previous.
a.n via swora in me passessioai.oi one oi
crowd was now: secured' and. put in the
hands of Mrs. T, who thereupon proceed
ed to slasu, stab and cut him ut the most
terrible manner; After her vengeance was
fully satisfied, the brothers and husband of
Mrs. T. shot tiie negro six or seven times
different parts of the body one of her
brothers anally putting an end to his tor
ment by snooting him- througtr the head.
The brutal exhibition was finally wound up
by actually scalping him, and his remains
were thrown into a gully . a few rods from
the place of execution. ' ' i-
A Poisoned Valley.
A poiscned valley has been discovered
near Batten, in Japan. .A Dr.-London
visited"' it last'July. end states that when
witlmr ir fewyards f the valley a strong
sufTocating"'smell was experienced, but this
ceased . as.; the - margin . was., approached.
The bottom of it appeared to be fiat,- des
titute of vegitation, aind with a' few large
Atones scattered here and there. Skeletons
human beings, tigers, bears, deers, and
sorts. Of .birds and wild animals, lay
about ia profusion. The ground on which
they ky, at the bottom of the valley, ap
peared to be a hard, sandy substance, and
i vapor was precieved. ,-The sides were
oovered with vegetation. t' i ! :j - -' '
It was proposed .to enter it, and each of
the' party having lit a segar, managed to
get within twenty feet of the bottom, where
sickening nauseous smell was experienced
without any . difficulty " of .breathing. , A
dog was now fastened to' the end of a bam
boo and thrust to the bottom of the Valley,
while some of the party, with their watch
es in their hands, observed the effect. "'" .
At the expiration of fourteen seconds, he
off his legs,-without moving or looking
around, and continued alive only eighteen
minutes. ' The other dog now left lie com
pany and went to his companion. On
reaching him he was "observed to stand
quite motionless, and at the end of ten sec
onds fell down ; he never moved his limbs
after, and lived, only. .seven t minutes. "A
towi was now thrown an,-ana -died in a
minute and a quarter. A heavy . shower
rain fell during the time these experi-
merus were going forward, which, from the
interesting nature of t he experiments, was
quive disregarded, on the opposite side
the valley to that which was visited, lav
human skeleton. . The head was resting
the right arm. The effect of the weath
er bad bleached the bones as white as ivo
J. his was probably the remains of
some, wretched rebel hunted toward the
valley,' who had taken refuge there uncon
cious of its character. -
Who is Reponsible.
"' A young man' in1 Virginia had become
sadly intemperate, He was a man of great
capacity, lacinanon ana power, out ne nau
passion for brandy which nothing could
control.' urten in his walks a biend-remonstrated
with him, but in vain; as often
in raturn would he urge his friend to take
the social glass in vain. On one occasion
the latter agreed to yield to him; and as
they walked up the barkeeper said :. ....
.. "What will you haveP . 1.
"Wine air," was the reply.
-. The glasses, were filled,, aud the -two
friends stood ready to pledge each other in
renewed and eternal friendship, when he
paused and said to hk intemperate friend :
,,- now, if X dnnk this glass and become
a drunkard, wilt you take the responsibil
ity. T . . , . . ..
- .The drunkard looked at him with sever
ity, and said:
"Set down that glass." '. 1 ' '
It was set down and the two walked
away without saying a word. :
ihe drunkard knows the awful conse
quences of the first glass. ' Even in his
own madness for liquor, he is not willing
to assume the responsibility of another be
coming a drunkard.
What if the question were put to every
dealer as he asks for his license, and pays
the money "are you willing to assume
the responsibility J" How many would
say, if the love of money did not rule,
"Take back the license.' , .
Who is Reponsible. Political Matter.
From the New York Independent.
Only One Vote.
' Christians sometime excuse
from going to the polls and from staking
any active interest m politics, on the' plea
that a few votes more of less' cannot mate
rially affect the result of an election, and,
therefore, since they can do nd "good by
voting j-they choose to avoid the excitements
of a political campaign. , Let us look at
this plea. ; Does the fact that we cannot
be sure of accomplishing a great and mani
fest good, lessen our obligation to use all
reasonable ' effort : for . that end t : Shall
Christians reason thus, because in a given
community they chance to be in a minority,
or because they are a very small minority
of the population of the globe ? - The abili
ty and the opportunity to act, and not the
estimated results of action, are the measures
of Christian obligation. ' But the possible
results ; of our action may also come in to
enhance that obligation. The may be of
ten gives additional emDhasis to the ouaht.
We must obey the dictates of concience, the
sense of nght, the calls of humanity and of
x-roviuence, even wnen we cannot see the
Uwoausauamadiala good but whan : to
the plain dictates of Conscience, Humanity,
and Religion, are added even the 'possible
results of good from our action or of evu
from out inaction the .obligation to "do
rltH tor- might thtft hiclUur hand find-
em to ao . becomes more urgent and . im
pressive.' '' !-.' i-i : ' ' ..!;--: -j
.Now nothing: can be more illusive than
this veryiplea lhat a singleTvote will accom
plish nothing for the- good -of the country,
nothing, to secure rast counsels, nothing to
hinder the triumph of deceit and oppression,
because it is but one. ,' There have been
crises memorable in history; both ' in z the
British Parliamentaed is the early Colonial
kgisjationjn- this country,1 when' measures
portentous with theestiny of nations and
of ages hung upon a single vote. ; And nn-
der our popular form of government, a sin-'
gle vote is likely at any time to determine
the election of public officers, or in; legisla
tive bodies to settle measures of moment-
nous interest to a State or to the Nation.
Twice, within a recent date, was a Govern
or of die' State of Massachusetts elected by
one vote. - In one instance a single vote
gave him a majority in the popular election.
Itt the-other he was elected by a-- majority
of one, in the Legislature, in default of elec
tion by the people." :" By how small a ma
jority was Mr, Banks chosen Speaker of
the House of Representatives. And yet
how much 'of the efficiency of the - present
Congress in behalf of Constitutional free
dom is due to" the two or three votes that
placed him in "the Speaker's chair. 'The
.other day the vote to admit Hansas as a
.Free State under the Topeka Constitution,
was lost by one vote, after every peliminary
measure hadbeen carried. Again, the mo
tion to reconsider-, that fatal resolve was
carried by twoTotes, and then the bill to
recognize freedom in Kansas prevailed by
only two votes. Une single vote may - in
fold within itself blessings or miseries that
future generations alone can estimate.
To apply this to the case in hand.- The

The South must be taken as a unit for
the extension of slavery. The addition of
Pennsylvania to the Southern vote would
swell that vote to 147, lacking only two of
a" majority.- Therefore every other Free
State must, be carried by the friends of
freedom, if Pennsylvania shall join, her
strength to the slavery oligarchy. The vote
of .New Hampshire, of Vermont, of Rhode
Island, Michigan, Wisconsin, . Iowa, Cali
fornia any one of these given to Mr. Bu
chanan,, would in that case turn the scale
in favor of sectional despotism against Con
stitutional . freedom. . Kot a. vote, there
fore, can be lost in any Slate without the
risk of losing the election. -
Ihe legislature, of each State directs the.
manner in which thb "PresiJuulml .electors
shall be chosen.. -We believe that in all
the Free States this is now done by a gen
eral ticket arid by a plurality vote : i- e.,
plurality of the voters in a State carry
the whole number of electors for the btate.
New York is entitle to 35 electors. These
are not to be chosen by districts, so that a
part might be elected for t remont, , others
for Buchanan, and others for Fillmore; but
each voter has upon his ticket the names
35 electors Tor his State, and whichever
general ticket has the highest number of
voters throughout the oiate is elected.
Suppose 'then, for illustration, that New
York should cast, in November next, 500,-
000 votes for Presidential electors, and
that of these.100,000 should be given for
the Fillmore, ticket.' This would leave
400,000 to be divided between CoL Fre
mont and Mr. Buchanan. . If the Buchan
an ticket should have 200,001 votes, .leav
ing for Fremont 199,999. ,the whole 35
electorial votes of this States would go for
the Democratic candidate. Just so in
Massachusetts; the one vote that elected
Gov. Morton, may give a plurality for Fill
more or Buchanan. So in any State.
Hence the exceeding importance of one
vote when parties are nearly balanced.
Yet thousands neglect going to the polls
because they have only one vote.
" At the Presidential election in 1852, of
of 839,389 white males over 21 years of
age in New York, only 622,204 went to
the polls: 317,000 is far too large an al-
lowance to mak'e for foreigners, ' invalids,
fcc . In Connecticut, OI" 102,836 adult
males, only 66,768 went to the polls.
Surely the 38,000 were not all disqualified.
In New Jersey, of 119,557 adult rratl on
ly 83,211 voted. Where were the 36.000?
Evidently thousands and tens of thousands
who are entitled to vote, do sot vote at all.
These are probably quiet, retiring citizens,
who if they -should vote at all would be
likely to vote on the right side. i
-.Are you reader of this number? Look
we pray you, at what God requires of you
as a citizens. - You can see that the Em
peror Alexander, as the ruler of 62,000,000
of people, and the proprietor of 23,000 of
sens, whose destinies he can control by
word, has a direct and fearful responsibili
ty to God for the use of that power. But
unless the whole theory of popular sover
eignty is a sham, the power deposited in
your hands as a voter may determine inter
ests as momentous as lie within the will of
the Emperor of Russia, i Your vote may
decide whether this fair land shall be filled
with the fruits of Christian civilization or
with the bitter or deadly fruits of slavery.

1st. This Soap contains no alloy. Hence,
every ounce of it is washing material. -
2 J. Less than on half the quantity required
of common Soaps will do the same work of any

will save nm psa cent, of the time and labor

ease, rapidity and thoroughness. .

leaving it soft and clear, and thus effectually
prevents its chapping. Machinists, artists, and
all mechanics will find this soap invaluable for

MONKEY'S parrots and dogs mav be taught
to imitate some of the outward" forms and
actions, of humanity and foxes manifest an
aptness in stealing quite equal to the generality
of masking but to man alone is given the
ability to originate, contrive and construct, and
even tie animal seems to divide by his own acts
his tpeeie into the different gem of men, or or-
tinators, contrivers and constructors and mon
eys parrots and foxes, or imitators, pretend
ers and speculators. Mark the exempfijieatioa:
Wm. A. Batahelor, of 233 Broadway, New York,
having, by perseverance and years of toil and
costly experiments, succeeded in producting a
Hair" Dye, for which he has received fifteen
Meddals and Diplomas and, by all, admitted
to be perfect in all respects, a host of imitating
monkeys and piratical pretenders, who always
beset the paths of genius and toil, and to take
advantage of the wit they do not possess them
selves, have sprung upon the trail laid out by
"Batchelor." With peculiar pertinacity they
beset and worry with pretentious stones and
brr-vado, every one who will listen to them, and
they frequently succeed in gaining credit for
themselves and trash. To guard the unsus
pecting, the original and genuine Wm. A. Batch
elor's Hair Dye is now put up with costly steel
plate engraving, and his signature thereon on
four sides of the box, and the address, 233
Broadway, New Tork.
