SUNDAY MORNINO. JULY 26, 1868.
LETTER PFROM ST. LOUIl.
Ipeckal Correrpondesce of the New Orleans Creet eedm.]
ST. Loris, July 23, 1R;3 . me
it has rained quite hard all the morning, in con
sequence of which the atmosphere is several de- hel
S'-es rculer thlrn it has been for "lo, these many le
dal). 'People breathe more freely this morning ,ie
and go to their work with more alatrity than they Wi
have evinced since the commencement of the a
Leated term : in fact everybody seems instinct
ively to feel that a permanent change has taken afi
place, and that such a quantity of " cussedness"
as we have lately experienced in the shape of oa
weather will not be visited upon our devoted P
beads again thia summer at least.
I notri d a `t. locis telegram to the C('ar.ET V.
of a recei t date that on a certain day " whisky
and the hl at had killed twenty persons." 'Truly be
so; there Is little doubt that all stimulating drinks
in such " outland)-hly "' hot weather are ex ap
trenely injnrious, and a large percentage of those L
Sbhose deaths have occurred here this summer and to
Leen attributed to sunstroke, apoplexy. etc., has
been dire:tly superinduced by the excessive use at
of alcoholic drinks. The weather had somethiug let
to do with it of course, but that alone would not
in all probability have eaased t'.e death of very
many who have " shbottled off this mortal coil." In
Liot weather people must necessarily drink, but of
why drink that which will only tend to produce
greater heat in one's system and at the same time
tail to quench thirst? Lager beer is probably a
n-rre heatui g drink than brandy and whisky, wrile sti
,rume wine, in my opinion. " lays over them
all in heating one's " innards." I have tried all
tie drinks in use in civilized communities, and P
Sriet say that for a cooling and refresaing drink tic
reed buttermilk carries off' the palm; it also reo
dire ione sleepy, wh ch is agreat desideratum this Lc
t.,rri-l weather, and one may get "full as a goose '
of it and still not " see double," a most annoying tit
corndition to be in. so

On motion to recommit the reports of the com- on

I claim, Mr. Ple-idelt, that uuder any circum
stances. this motion comes too late. I claim that Pa
the attention of the Senate was broughtto in such re'
a meaner that it would be unjust, auke to Mr.
.Jewell as to Mr. 'luchbeck, to recomimit this ar
mltter : and I claim, therefore, that the spirit wr
which actuated them to-day is the spirit which
I hope will govern them in judging between gr
the contestants. Sir, I question whether the dii
political aistory of the whole country-cer
taivly not of this State--would disclose cr
a conditi(n of aflaire, so peculiarly embarrassing 2:
to tie minority, as that in which we find ourselves
to lay. We stand here isolated as it were, like
locks in the midst of an ocean, the breakers of ca
lre ublican oppression washing upon us, and h"
facuing in hissing anger. We stand here with l
dang re on every aide: dangers not confined :o us
(oly, but through us to those we represent. We at
staid here with the sword of Damocles hanging I'
over our heads with Scylla on the one side and tb
Charybdis on the other, and compelled to guide
ouiselses so as to do justice to our conscieaces,
nod yet avoid that oestruction which t'reatens, hi
Lot only us but our cona;:tuenta. Can you, air, Ir
hndicastand the position we cicupy' ('4an the
eenate I believe you can, sir. Let the voice
of the Senate prove that you can, and that 5c
ijsilwe will be done. We know, sir, that there l"
are certain members of the Senate who wi I at
rinte etah word uttered in debate by any or
It mocratio senator whose seat is contest d, ai
and we know that in the heat of poil
tcal dscnussion, dissensions ant ill-wi-will must arise.
and that the principle is olten forgotten in the CO
nlan. We know that each and every word uttered Ot
by us prejudices and jeopard zes our position, andw
yet can vie relain wilent wh-n our consciences r
teli us to speak-when the rights of our cony itu

TIe second round was ashell of the same weight

sit. plate and the other part on the thinner part
x adit,ing. In front no damage wsseeen, but at
th- bat k it was found that the horizontal iron
Splank" over the porthole was broken in two on
e the right hand side of the port and partly thrust
a bhck·ard. The bolts near the part strurk
- / rete strained. but not broken. The shell did not
t. bury iteell deep enough in the iron to do more
r ultchief than a shot, as the buarsting charge ex
o ploded in the rear.
a. The third round was a shot from the great
American Rodman gun, with a ffteen oe a btore
and a cuaoson round shot of 151 pouads weight.h
lhe cnata charge Is America for this gun is 6W
pounds. b;t, as it is said to be sometimes used with
100 pounds, it was determined to try it with its fulL
power, and for that purpose it was I nalded with
3-4 pounds of our powder, wbl'b. from its greater
streagth, is found equivalent to 109 pounds Amer
ican. The shot struck the atrengchenlig p ste
about 15 inches from the bottom and a little to the
rpht of the middle, not far from the shot of the
brst round. It cracked the front plate, started
ant ther bolt, and bent the inede layer of iron,
d'o ng altogether but little damage. tie shot re
bounded, and fell, much flatteued, aJew feet in
front of the target. It was of American make,
aLd appesred to be of excellent iron.
As the last shot was said to have grazed the
around before arriving at the target, and thereby
to have lost some of Its force, a second shot was
fire d from the same gun, also at the strengtheoning
plate, which it struck tire feet high and one foot
six incLes from the lelt hand edge. It made an
rident of eight or nine inches, cracking the plate
th(uerh to the edge, and knocking off by the
chock from the right hand corner a piece of plate
already broken by former rounds. The inner
planks near the porthole were distorted, and an
upright s'andard slightly bent. The shot struck
on atl', t where the plates were supported by one
of these standlards, and which was, therefore, a
stror g Ih.ce; but the eflect of both these rounds
appeared so small for lthe I rge charge of powder
as to give but an indiflerent opinion of the power
of thbi b, acted Anteiican weapon compared with
our own riled guns.
For the tilth round the 12 inch rifled gun was
renmned, and another shot was tired, a'to at the
thi, kenieg plate. It strnk sh abut sie feet high.
and near the middle of the plate. It penetrated
lirteen inches and broke a bolt, doing also con

was violen ly projected about one hundred feet to
the rear of the target.
The three remainiig shots were aimed at the
thinner part of the target, representing what is
acitually in construction tot the forts, and lfteen
inches thick. It was inondeled thit at least one of
these should hit a part between the upright stand
ards, where the plates were unbacked. but this
was. nit accomplished, each shot strik'ng a place
in teediate y in front of the upright siundards.
The sixth t nond was a silid hot, which penetrated
abi, t ten nehes, broke two ,iottl, and caused a
bulge in bith the back plates anl the st tndards.
The seven'b round was a shell, whicl, like all the
Sthere, burst out-ide, and did hittle further mis
chief: antl the eighth roei d was a so id shot that
cauti da large bulge in tiiihe rt ar, projecting seve
ral inches, and opening with a wide, star shaped
c. ack, the standard also being considerably bent,
though not broken.
Lies ended the day's practice. The Plymouth
t.Urget had received the tire of eight rouuds, from
the Il'rest guns with the full hbatt-ring charges,
and, althoutgh it was a good deal punished in some
parts, it hald stood on the whole very well It was
not penetrated by any of the shot, nor had It
ceased to stord protecttn. The worst feature
iot the day was thie Irjetiuon of thie rear of the
large lmaes of iron in the fith round, wh ch would
of course have been a serious thing in actual
The Beds or the Romans.
The hbes of the Romana in the early days of the
repiuLirc were of tLe sani descripton as those
used in Greete; but toward the end of it. and
during the empire, when Italy acquired a taste
fur the luxuries of Asit, the richness and magnitlo
ctnce of ti e beds of wealthy ltrmans far ex
ceeded those used by the Gre,ks. spendid though
they were. There was scarcely anydiffsrence be
tween the sleprlog be In of the ancients and their
n cochis, except that the litter, befng made for
appelarance as wel aas for comifort, were more
beautiful and costly than the former. There were
a usuall) three persons to one bed or couch, the
middle place in which was considered to be the
most hinorable. 'I heee beds were unknown be
fore the second Punic war. Ilutil then the Honses
Patd do n to eat on plain woo len benches, after the
manner of the heroes of 1,m.nler, and, as Varro

. stutled with straw or the like, and covered with
a tie shins of sheep or goats. The comfort of
these beds differed little Irom that of the wooden
benche. which they a .iplanted; but with them
o came the fashion among the men of reclining in
0 stead of sitting at lmeals. The Rtoman ladies
u modea'iy adhered to the old custom during the
It time o' the l oummonwealih ; but after the period
al of the first C:'anrs they. to, ate on their beds.

i tlure wbich we have abo\e descrribed, the dining
le beds of the Romans were elaborated into most
ot magntilcent articles of decoration. Pliaey tells
rd u. that they were sometimes covered with plates
ol ofi alver and adorned with the w,fttst of Iitst and

tl.a tlhogabulus had bed- of .oliid siler, and
a I', tipey on his third triomph introduced beds of
ts gold. 1 he sleeping bed of the I )tiana was gen.
a erasily rather high, so that persnus entered it by
n means of steps. The bedstead was sometimes
lie made of metal, and at others of valuable wood,
an ar veneered with Ivory or tortoise shell; and fre
re quently it rested on feet ,f silver or gold. In beds
l Intended to be used by two persons the sides were
I: distingui.hed by dilferent names; the aide at which
or the shelers entered was open, and was called
