Wo think the Sentinel is rather too
fast in assuming that the Congress will
require the following conditions to be
complied with hy the States :
" We are, first, to adopt an amendment to
the Constitution preventing the State from
making any discrimination in its laws on ac
count of color ; secondly, to accord to negroes
the right of suffrage from and alter July 4tU,
18T6; thirdly, to agree that, between this
and that time, there is to be no representa
tion for colored persons not allowed to vote ;
and then, all these things being conceded, we
may be admitted, jnorided our reprcsenta-
tires can swallow the test oatn v
The Sentinel uikls:
" We urefer beinjr excluded from repre
sentatiou, indefinitely, rather than volunta
rily make these oppressive, unjusr, unci in
Wc shall not argue these points, for
the reason that they have not been ofli
ciallv presented. "Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof."
But the Sentinel should remember
that the whole work of restoration, so
far as many of our people are concern
ed, has been involuntary.' Certainly,
the late insurgent States are jxtssive in
this business. They can do nothing
but propitiate the government by a cer
tain line of policy. It is tre who have
sinned bv attempted secession. We
are in the power of the government.
We cannot improve our condition by
fretting or acting defiantly. Such a
course will only sink us deeper and
deeper in the slough of ruin. To say
we will accept only such terms as we
may deem proper and just, and that un
less Ave can get our own terms we will
remain out of the XTnion indefinitely,
would be to aggravate our condition
year by year, until at last we should be
reduced to petty provinces, under mili
tary rule, our lands taken from us in
various ways, and all hope for the na
tive generations in our midst blasted or
cut olT. We must cither rule ourselves
as a part of the Union, or be ruled by
the Union. Partial self-government is
better than no self-government. Once
in the Union, no matter what our con
dition might be, we would be the equals
of the other States, and could demand
our rights in the face of the world.
We could point to the Constitution as
our Constitution, and ask that the
same measure of justice should be given
to us as to Illinois or Xew York. We
could be heard in Congress, and could
take advantage of divisions among our
opponents to promote our own interests.
We. would be exempt from military
law. We might be poor, and our coun
sels might not be often heeded, but we
would be free, and we would have am
ple protection to life, liberty, and prop
erty. But out of the Union as Ave are
now, what can Ave hope for?
We noAV say to the Sentinel and its
friends, that il Xorth-Caroliua Avill pur
sue the proper course she will be ad
mitted soon after Tennessee. We haA'e
assurances in this respect of the most
satisfactory character. If we had car
ried out the President's plan in good
faith, Ave should haA'e been admitted
with Tennessee. It is not too late to
carry out that plan now, but it may be
six months hence.
Every thing was working well in this
State up to the beginning of the cam
paign for Governor and members of the
Legislature and Congress. The State
Avas being reorganized through the
agency of loyal men that is, the spe
cial and jtcculiar friends of the Iresi
dent. We do not say that others are
disloyal, or that they took the oath with
the intention to break it ; but what Ave
insist on is, that the President's plan
should have been completed as it was
commenced ; that this was indispensa
ble to put the State on an advantageous
footing before the Congress ; that it
Avas due to our best friend, the Presi
dent ; that the course of our people in
the November elections has weakened
the President, and has " greatly dam
aged the State," to use the President's
own language, " in the restoration of
its governmental relations.". These
things are so. No change for the bet
ter has been effected since the election
of Gov. Worth, but things have been
getting worse and worse. What, then,
sh6uldtedone?;: We will discuss this
hei-eafter.l We call ,npon the Sentinel
and its friends to meet us in this dis
cussion in such a spirit as will produce
good to the State. Let us discard pre
judice and passion. Let every consid
eration of personal or political advan
tage be forgotten. Let us think of noth
ing but the best means of restoring the
State to the Union.
The Sentinel asks us if ths Washing
ton Chronicle is correct in saying that
we have declared the President's plan
"a failure." It is not correct. The
President's plan has our approval. We
Avere engaged seven months in trying
to cany it out. We are committed to
it by eArery consideration of interest
and honor. It is " a failure" only so
far as the people of the States have not
carried it out. There is no fault in the
plan. The fault is in the people Avho
have not carried it out. It was success
ful in this State up to November, 18C5.
It may be successful hereafter, if taken
up and carried out in good faith. If we
will do this Ave Avill at once infuse new
life into the prospects of the State, and
render the President invincible in his
contest Avith his enemies.
Tliej Aspinwall Explosion Details of the Hor
rors Almost; every honse lu Asplnwell dam
aged hoss, ene million dollars A large mm
ber of persons killed and wounded.
On the 3d instant, while the Liverpool
steamer, European, was lying alongside the
railroad company's dock, discharging cargo,
a terrific explosion took place in the hold of
the ship. The effect was frightful in the ex
tremc. The vessel was literally shattered to
pieces, Avhile the wharf was almost totally
ruined. The railroad freight-house, a fine
stone and iron building, situated at least two
hundred feet from the vessel, was totally de
molished bv the concussion. But the loss of
property, although great, Avas a small matter
in comparison with the frightful loss of life.
The captain, first officer, second officer, the
surgeon, and live others on hoard the ship,
Avere almost instantly killed, iwenty-one
men on the wharf net with the same horri
ble fate, and twentv-fiVe men on shore and
ship Avere badly Avounded. Of a gang of la
borers Avho AA-erc at AA'ork in the hold of the
ship not one is knoAvn to lia-e escaped death.
The total ot killed and wounded, so far as
knoAvn, up to this date, is as follows : Killed
and missing (the latter undoubtedly being
dead,) rif'ty-t'.vo ; Avounded and in hospital,
twenty-four. This list includes those who
died from their wounds after their removal
to the Iluiiroad Hospital.
lo heighten the trightful character of the
accident, a lire immediately broke out on
board the ship, effectually cutting off all re

explosion. "While the fire was raging on the
decks of the vessel and around the hatch-
wavs, the unfortunate men could be seen ap
proaching the port-holes and imploring the
aid Avhich it was totallv impossible to atiord
them. They were burned or drowned to a
man, and helped to swell the list of missing.
rearing that a second explosion might
take place, attended with a further loss of
ble, Captain Moir, of the Roval Mail Steam
ship Solent, Avith the greatest peril to himsef
and vessel, made fast a line to the burning
wreck, and towed her from the dock into the
stream. The Solent had scarcely cut loose
from the European Avhen a second explosion
took place more terrific, if anything, than
the first and immediately afterward the
wreck began sinking rapidly, and in thirty
minutes no portion of the ill-fated steamer
could be seen above Avatcr, with the excep
tion ot the top ot her smoke-stack. Had
the second explosion occurred thirty minutes
previously, the ensuing loss of life could not
have been calculated, as the docks in close
proximity to the European Avere jammed
Avith curious spectators ot the scene.
The effect of the explosion on shore and
near the dock was sickening in the extreme.
Fragments of human bodies Avere seen float
ing around in the Avatcr here a limb and
there a trunk Avhile in other places, on the
decks of neighboring vessels and on the
dock, the balance of the unhappy- victims
might be found. Alanv bodies Avere taken

with medical aid. The express reached As
pinwall in one and a half hours (running
time) from Panama the quickest time on re
cord on that road.
The funeral of the officers of the Euro
pean Avas largely attended. A detachment
of marines from the United States steamer
James Adger accompanied the procession as
a military escort. The dastardly Prefect of
Aspinwall, hoAvever, refused permission for
the marines to land Avith their arms and con
sequently they presented a sorry appearance
at the funeral. Captain Swainson was inter-
led the next day with Mascnic honors, but

CAUSE OF TUB EXPLOSION.
During the excitement of the hour follow
ing the event, the accident was currently at
tributed to the explosion of ihe boiler of the
steamer. But upon a close examination of
the bills of lading it was found that a large
quantity of glonoin oil, or nitro-glycerine,
had been shipped at Liverpool under an or
dinary invoice. This solved the mystery.
The European was an iron screw steamer.

Removal af Twelve Cases of the ComhasnDie
: beyond the City Limits. -
The Marshal took before the Mayor,
Charles Nobel, a German chemist, the man
nfa.rr.urer of the article, and James Daveau,
who became a partner of Nobel for the man
ufacture and sale of the same. '
Nobel stated that he arrived in this city
on Monday last, bringing with him twelve
cases of nitro-glycerine, which were then in
the custom-house bonded warehouses.
In company with Nobel, Marshal Baker
proceeded to the bonded warehouses JNos.
56 and 58 Greenwich street, and there found
ten cases. These were removed, much to the
relief of the occupants, who, until mtormed
bv the Marshal, had not the most distant
idea that any of the dreaded compound was
in the buildings. JNone could oe touna
Avillin"f to remove the cases, and the Marshal
and the owner therefore performed that sup
posed perilous work.
The remaining two cases were found to be
in the Assayer's Office, No. 56 Broadway,
and on applying for them it was found that
thev were in the chemical department, on the
too floor. Thither thev went, and after
considerable search, for the boxes Avere only
marked " G. H.," they were at length found,
and, together Avith the others found in the
Avarehouse, safely removed beyond the city
Mr. Nobel states that the above is all that
there Avas in the city, he being the sole man
ufacturer, and that having been brought
OA-er by him. He further claims that the
steamer European, lately destroyed by some
explosive substance at Aspimvall, causing
terrible loss of life, was not blown up by
mtro-glycerine, as he is positive she had
none on board. He is rather inclined to the
belief that it must have been gun-cotton.
The. amount contained in the boxes which
exploded at San Francisco Avith such fear
ful results is stated by Mr. Nobel at about
tv?enty-seven pounds. The amount seized
bv the Eire Marshal amounts to about three
hundred pounds. From this our readers
may infer the amount of damage which
would have been caused by its explosion
within the city limits. Tribune.
THE YOUNG MEN OF THE SOUTH
Amusements, or vices if you will, of those
young men ot leisure and tortune, of patri
monies, present or prospective, are neither

South whose fame and tortune are yet to be
made 1 They cannot all be rich or distin
guished, but each one has it in his poAver to
be estimable, honest, and mdu tnous; and
the surest Avay to overcome the raages and
desolation of AA-ar is for all to work hard and
Avell. Thousands of" men Avbosc position in
life was assured, Avho had been able to edu
cate and support their children in comfort
and affluence, have seen all their earnings
swept away in a moment. They haA-e been
compelled to begin again at the lowest round
of the ladder; and surely their children, Avho
have shared their prosperity and participat
ed in their comfort, will not noAV allow them
to labor unencouraged and alone.
A feAv years can and will restore the South
to a prosperous condition, but its prosperity
cannot and will not continue unless the pla
ces of those avIio must soon pass away are
filled by men young in years, bat old in rec
titude, perseverance and determination. In
the country districts these truths have been
realized and practiced. Young men Avho,
in 1861, were looking forward, to high hon
ors in the Alma Mata of Virginia ; others
who had commenced, under favorable auspi
ces, the study of laAV or physic; many avuo
were maturing their plans tor a tnp to the
uncrican Mecca the Metropolis ot i ranee
found themselves at the close of the Avar
Avith nothing left but honor and the modest
pride of Virginians. Repining and regrets
were useless, and they kneAv it ! It was vain
to weep and sigh over the irrevocable past !
Work Avas the only panacea for a wounded
heart and an empty purse, and to work the3'
vigorously addressed themselves !. The hand
which had held the scalpel in its firm grasp
soon guided the plough ; the eye Avhich had
drawn knowledge and refinement from the
rich min of ancient and modern learning,
soon watched the rising corn ; and the math
ematical mind then delighted in the sight of
a straight and evenly-turned furroAA They
could not have all that they wished ; but
they AA-ould not be idle, and so addressed
themselves vigorously to the practical duties
of life. This is the true Virginia spirit the
spirit Avhich has made this old Common
Avealth honorable in the past, and w.ij.l make
her prosperous in the future. Wc cannot a'l
be laAvyers. doctors, engineers, and men of
leisure and if Ave cannot have what, vye
wish, Ave- must, do what we can..
In the cities and towns of Virginia, the
spirit of the young men has been too often
entirely different from that shown by their
country friends ! Loaf.ng, drinking, and
general indolence have been too much the
order of the day ; and- many wko-eontinually
cry out against the supineness of the igno
rant negro, forget that they themselves, the
representatives of a civilized and enlighten
ed people, are only consistent in doing noth
ing. There are a thousand things left Avhich
may be clone with honor and profit, and the
absence of comfortable employment should
be no excuse for idleness, Avhen the constitu
tion is sound and the vigor of the muscles
unimpaired. No man will be disgraced by
any honest occupation which has been forc
ed upon him, by the vicissitudes, of war. The
battle-Avorn soldier lieAvho has gathered to
himself, by unobtrusive courage and devo
tion, a rich harvest of honor and gratitude
can never be slighted because ho wields the
hoe-, drives a hack, chops avooiI, or breaks
stones in the streets ! The true, noble man
is still there, and, as a rule, lie who was a true
and brare soldier in, war, tcill be industrious
and hard working- in peace !
Our depression and disaster Avill not last
for a life-time. Prosperity and fortune will
gradually return to us, and then those who
are novr disciplining their minds by self-denial
and patience will receiATe the reward of
their. labors. Far from being disqualified1
they Avill be the better worthy of returning
to the ease and luxury of their early years,
bearing in their hearts the consciousness also
that no reverse of fortune can find them un
armed er unprepared. Those who ate idle
and careless now w ill continue to be so !
The habit will cling to them until it cannot
be shaken off or cast aside, and at last they
will be but drones in the hive, gaining noth
ing for themselves, and living upon the la
bor of others. The future of this country
depends upon: the young men, who are now
enjoying the strength and happiness of early
manhood. If they will work hard, there is
no need of fear ; but if an era of apathy and
intemperance is allowed, the South must fall
away considerably from its high estate, and
have Ettle left save the saddening memories
of her early and glorious histoy. Richmond
The consumption of coal, including
waste, in the United Kigdom, amounts to
three-times the quantity expended in 1845.
In the year 1845 the consumption in Great
