Wd know that our ow u su n (re sembling in this probably most other solar bodies of the same kind) is in so highly fluid and excitable a # condition as to be constantly sending out from its surface forked tongues (thousands of miles in ex tent) of inflamed hydrogen gas, like the flickering streams of light from the stars of a street illumination; and moreover, as to be subject to great periodical disturb ances, now called “magnetic storms,” which are in all probability caused by certain combinations in the movements of those little solid bodies, on one of which wo live round the sun. Even now one such epoch of magnetic storm seems to be thought pretty near at hand. The sun has lately been exhibiting the most surprising forms of disturbance, and presenting to scientific eyes less “fixity” of essence than ever. Spots so vast that we must estimate their dimensions by millions of square miles have broken out from time ;o time, and have presented rapid changes of figure, in dicating the action of forces of inconceiva ble intensity. Clusters of small spots, ex tending over yet vaster areas, have exhibi ted every form of disturbance known to the solar physicist, and every degree of light, from the apparent blackness (in reality only relative) oi the nuclei, to the intense brilliancy of the fuculous ridges. And we now know that these appearances are not merely matters for the curious, with which us they happen at a distance of above nine ty millions of miles, practical men need not concern themselves. In point of fact, it is by no means impossible that the issues of peace or war, of a financial crisis, or a religious agitation, may be closely bound up with these phenomena, if not, indeed — which is also quite possible—the sudden dis appearance of our whole system after the fashion of other solar systems which have thus disappeared. This much, at least, is certain, that the vast changes now going on in the physical constitution of the sun are changes which do most powerfully affect the electric condition of our earth, which have in former years caused the most vio lent disturbances in the various artificial as well as natural electric apparatus of the world we live in, and which, to speak of the least of all its possible effects, might, just as well as not, happen some day to throw the electric condition of every tele graphic cable on our planet, under the sea or above it, into the most dire confu sion, and send down telegraphic compa nies’ shares to zero in a lump, even if they did not contrive to telegraph to us, after some strange inarticulate fashion, that shares in all public companies, even in that very limited public company, the human race, are in a physical point of view, of very doubtful value indeed. Let us ex plain briefly to what wo allude. On September 1, 1859, shortly before noon two astronomers —Messrs. Hodgson and Carrington—one at Oxford, the other in London, were at the same instant scru tinizing a largo group of sun spots. On a sudden two intensely bright patches of light appeared in front of the cluster. So brilliant were they that the observers thought the darkening screens attached to their telescopes must have become fractur ed. Hut this was found not to be the case. The bright spots indicated some process going on upon the sun’s surface —a process of such activity that within five minutes the spots traveled over a space of nearly 34,000 miles. Now, at tlieKcw Observa tory there are self-registering magnetic in struments whicli indicate the processes of change by which the subtle influences of terrestrial magnetism way and wane. At one time the line traced by the pointer will be marked by scarcely perceptible undula tions, indicating the almost quiescent state of the great terrestrial magnet. At another well-marked waves along the line exhibit the pulsations of the magnetic system, in fluenced in a manner as yet unintelligible to theqihysicist. And then there is a third form of disturbance, the sharp sudden jerks of the pointer exhibiting the occur rence of those mysterious phenomena term ed “magnetic storms,” When the records of the Kew Observatory came to be looked over, it was found that at the very instant in which the brilliant spots of light had appeared to Messrs. Hodgson and Carring ton, the self-registering instruments had been subjected to the third and most sig nificant form of disturbance -a magnetic storm began, in fact, as the light broke ! out on the sun’s surface. But this was not the only evidence" of the sympathy with which the earth responded to the solar ac tion. It was subsequently found that soon after the spots of light had appeared the whole frame of the earth had thrilled un der a mysterious magnetic influence. At the West Indies, in South America, in Australia, wherever magnetic observations are systematically made, the observers had the same story to tell. In the telegraph stations at Washington and Philadelphia the signalmen received strong electric I shocks. In Norway, telegraphic machiu j ery was set on fire. The pen of Bain’s tel egraph was followed by a flame. And j wherever telegraphic wires were in action | well-marked indications of disturbance presented themselves. Even this, however, was not all. The great magnetic storm j was not a mere instantaneous electric throe. | Houis passed before the disturbed earth ' resumed its ordinary state. And thus it happened that in nearly all parts of the earth night fell while the storm was yet in progress. During the night magnificent auroras spread their waving streamers over the sky, both in the northern and southern hemisphere. As the disturbed needle vi brated, the colored streamers waved re sponsive, and it was only when the magnetic storm was subsiding that the au roral lights faded from the heavens. Now, it is evident that these phenomena show the most intimate relation between these peculiar disturbances in the sun and the ; magnetic currents of our own earth. Di- 1 rectly one of these changes takes place up- ■ wards of ninety millions of miles away, 1 the electric condition of our planet is : changed in some mysterious way, of which our instruments, ami even the condition of : our sky bear record. The pen of all our telegraphic wires may some day trace in 1 flame a hand-writing more ominous of hu man destiny than was the handwriting which during Belshazzar’s feast, traced a ; warning on the wall of the fall of the Babylonian dynasty. Moreover, note this, ; that these changes in the condition of the suit take place at intervals of about eleven years. The variable star which swings round it, as well as supplying us with 1 light and heat and (apparently) magnet ism, clouds over every eleven years tlicsoi 1 spots, so that it seems most likely that every eleven years certain magnetic con ditions recur which Lave not occurred in ■ the interval. If so, perhaps, the magnetic i excitement of 1850 will recur, and it may i lie in much greater force next year—in 1 1870. And if it docs, how arc wo to say 1 what may or may not recur with it 1 It is i quite possible that those periods of spccti- i lativc financial excitement—which are also i j said to follow a periodic law of something ' very like the same period—may be more or 1 less dependent on the magnetic condition i of our planet, that so mean a phenomenon i as speculative frenzy on the stock ex- i changes of Europe may bo more or less 1 connected with these wonderful discharges i of voltaic batteries in the sun. Is it quite i impossible that the electric politic con- ] clition of Europe in 1848—and again at an i interval of eleven years, in the year of t Italian revival and revolution, 1859—may ] not recur after one or more period of eleven < years, in 1870, in consequence of the return- > ing epoch of magnetic excitement in the 1 sun ? From the Rockville (Aid.) Sentinel. White Supremacy. < There seems to lie a strong probability 1 of the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment and, in such an event, the negroes of Mary- 1 land will, in common with our white pop- 1 illation, be invested with the ballot. Now, 1 we wish to say a few words to our Demo- 1 cratic friends in anticipation of this event. ■ It is not uncommon to hear Democrats say 1 that, when negro suffrage comes, efforts 1 should be made to secure the negro vote. 1 It is urged that it will be right and proper to strengthen ourselves by an alliance with him; for our part, we shall re’gurd the : negro voter as more dangerous to our cause 1 as an ally, than an opponent. Corrupt and degraded as is the Mongrel politician, insatiable as is his avarice, and unscrupulous the means to which he will resort for its gratification, it is as the social ally of the negro that we regard him with in- 1 supcrable hatred and detestation. He is a white man who has sunk all the instincts of his race—a performance which places 1 him lower in the scale of humanity than : that occupied as a self-made eunuch. The man who would betray his race would bar ter away the virtue of his sister. When the Constitutional Amendment shall have become fully operative, the bat tle of the Democracy will be that of the 1 white against negro supremacy, for there is really no such thing as negro equality. It will be supremacy for the one race or the 1 other, for the effort to place the two perma nently on the same political plane can never ' be accomplished. You may start the two fairly together, but, in the very nature of things one will steadily outstrip the other. ' Now, the question comes up, what benefit 1 would be derived to the Democratic party 1 from courting the negro vote ? By tarn- 1 poring with the negro for his vote, you ‘ would drive away two respectable white 1 voters where you would got otto from the < negro. Let it be understood that you are ' the white man’s party of the State, and all 1 respectable white men will flock to your 1 standard, for it is a well known fact that 1 two-thirds of the prejudice against thcAf- 1 rican race is found among the poorer class- ! cs of white men. And if the Democratic : party shall attempt to pander to the preju- 1 dices ofthe negro in order to get his vote 1 “where is the difference between the two 1 parties V' will be the query of that class of 1 men to whom we have just referred. It is 1 true, the Democratic party will not he 1 held responsible for the introduction of this 1 state of things ; but men will not seek to ' inquire as to the first cause —they will take things as they find them, and act accord- ' iugly. Besides this there' is another great principle underlying the subject, and that is the right to hold office; anil we are sure ( that no party can long retain the negro 1 vote that does not recognize the right, and ( not only acknowledge it but put it into 1 immediate practice. ‘ Now, we make this appeal to Democrats of Maryland. Are you ready to elect no grocs to the offices of Sheriff, Commission cr, Delegate, Senator or Governor of your State ? Then why for one moment enter tain the idea of courting the favor of the 1 negro at the ballot-box ? We deny the f necessity for the step. The Democratic I party in Maryland is stronger than the ‘ Radicals and negroes combined. The > white man’s party will ho stronger still, whilst any measure looking to the enlist ment of the negro under the Democratic ( standard would drive away two white ; voters where it would bring one negro to i us. Lot us, then, stand aloof from negro-woo ing ; ictus not enter into contest with the Radicals to honey-fungle or flatter him for his support. Even if his alliance was de sirable we cannot beat the Radicals in the ; struggle for it, without imitating the mis- j creant’s example by treating the negro as ! our equal, social and political. When once we break down the barrier and try to drum the negro voters to our camp, the contest will become a mere scramble for the spoils one in which only politicians by trade will consent to engage. We, therefore, en treat Democrats all over the State to re train from any and every measure looking to the •acquisition of the negro vote. Prin ciple ever befote expediency, for while the latter may appear better for the present, in the end the former will come off trium phant, leaving our conscience untroubled and our garments unsullied.

AS ENGINEER CUABED BY FIRE AT SEVEN TY MILES AN HOUR —A THRILLING NAR RATIVE. * * To make it an intelligible matter to the reader let me say that the Buffalo, Corry and Pittsburg road intersects the Lake Shore Road at this place. Tho sta tion at the junction is called Brocton.— Now let it be understood that from this point to Mayville, at the head of Chautau qua Lake, a distance of only about ton miles, a train is carried over an elevation of 700 feet. From the station to'the sum mit the grade is about 80 feet to the mile, with curves which increase the distance by four miles. It is over this road that tit* immense quantities of p e tro loum are brought. On Tuesday evening, about 0 o’clock, a train consisting of six oil cars and two pas senger cars reached the summit on its way to the junction. Here, by some cause us yet unexplained, one ofthe oil tanks took lire. The passenger cars were at once de tached, ami the brakes stopped them. — Next the oil cars were cut oil', and the lo comotive, tender, and box car containin'* two valuable horses and two men passed down the road, the engineer supposing that the'brakemcn on tho oil cars would arrest tho course of those, but what was his hor ror on looking back, to see the six in pur suit of him down the grade, enveloped in flames. They not only pursued but over took him, striking the box car with incon ceivable force, knocking tho horses and men flat upon the floor, and yet almost miraculously not throwing the engine from the track. It was now with the engineer a race for life, and he gave the engine every ounce of steam. Looking south from my residence at that terrible juncture, one of the most magnificent spectacles was witnessed that a man sues in a lifetime. A sheet of intensely bright flame, sixty feet high, was seen coining down that southern slope, ap parently with the speed of a meteor, and really very nearly the speed of a hurricane (eighty mites an hour), for pursuer and pursued flew over the course, or rather down it, and around the curves, at the rate of seventy miles an hour, as the engineer declares, and as every body can believe who witnessed the spectacle. The whole heavens were illuminated, and the whole landscape was lit up as by the noonday light. Onward and downward flew the engine and behind it flew and thundered the huge fiery demon. Twice its prodigious weight was driven against the fugitive, as if instinct with a purpose to drive it from the track. It seemed as if to the heroic engineer and fire men there was a perfect environment of peril. The speed of the engine was such that it ceased to pump; then again, the Cincinnati express was due at the junction at this time. Tho engineer of the oil train whistled “open switch,” and shaking hands with the fireman, they bade each other farewell, knowing that their lives depended on the opening of the Lake Shore switch by their friends below, and tills was to imperil the express train coming down from the West with its living human freight. The engineer of this train saw the lire when it tii'st broke out at the summit, and supposing he could clear the junction be fore the flaming terror reached it, he too, put his engine to its utmost speed on a level grade. A mile short of the junction he saw that the effort was a vain one, for the flying conflagration had rushed upon tho Lake Shore track, and was roaring onward in the direction of Dunkirk. He checked tho onward course of his own train and brought it to a standstill. It did not pro ceed until 3 o’clock in the morning. The case took in another danger, and it was imminent. A heavy freight train was coming up the Lake Shore road. All I will say of the escape of this is that it did escape to the side track, and openly escap ed by the last minute of possibility. Running on to a safe distance from the depot, the engineer <>f the oil train detach ed his engine and left the six cars to con sume. He says his situation was fully re alized by him. He expected to lose his life. At every moment he expected the engine to leave tho track. He saw he was going at a perilous rate of speed, but there was no help for it. The demon was behind I him, and he declares that it looked like i a demon. With that fondness or real af fection for his engine, which these men j display, ho said, “I thought everything of j my engine, and was determined to stay by it to the last.” The fireman made one at tempt to escape by jumping from tho ten der, but tho engine restrained him. Alto gether the occurrence was a remarkable one, and in part was remarkable for this, that no lives were lost. The brakemen on the oil cars had gone back to tho passen ger cars, when the oil cars started. It was well they did. Unless those rear Curs had been detached and stopped, their inmates j would have been burned to death.

Albort Sidney Johnson. I UHMINISCKNC'ES OK AN INTKUVIEW WITH HIM. He was very large and massive in figure, i and finely proportioned. He measured six feet two incites in height, and had flesh to give him perfect symmetry. llis face was large, broad and high, and beamed with a look of striking benignity. His features were handsomely moulded. He was very straight, and carried himself with grace and loity and simple dignity. He dressed neatly but always in full Confederate gray ‘ General’s uniform, that suited him admira bly. His whole appearance indicated, in a marked degree, power, decision, serenity, thought, benevolence. We thought him then at first flush, and thought it unvary ingly afterwards, and think now in the hallowing memory of his noble manhood, made sacred by the consecration of his thrilling and heroic death for the South ern cause, that he was one of the most august men we ever met. His character was entrancing in its pure nobility. There was something in his manner that embold ened confidence, and when we got through, nothing could exceed the fatherly manner, with which he replied, encouraging, in structing, and assuring us of his kindness, lie proflered to help us with his counsel, or otherwise ; invited us to call on him at any time, and giving us the necessary or ders, wo left. It was that gentle politeness that won everybody who approached him, and en deared him to his people. Often afterward we met him at his headquarters, and in the field, and he always was the same affable, considerate, fatherly gentleman, inspirin' the gravest reverence, winning the fondest regard, and exciting the highest admira tion. But we must hasten on to our inter view with him. It was at Corinth, Miss, a few days before the bloody battle of Shi loh. We had some important business, and rode to his headquarters. He met us with his usual cordiality, but stated that in consequence of pressing matters, he would be unable to give us his personal attention, and must, for once, refer us to his Adjutant-General, but that we must not feci slighted, and he would also be glad to see us hereafter with the same freedom. The consideration of his manner and re marks amid the engrossing occupation of preparing that great movement to Shiloh, upon which he depended so much to re trieve the disasters of Donaldson and Nash ville, prove how thorough a gentleman he was, and how kindly was his heart. He bid us good morning with a friendly grasp ol the hand, and we never spoke to -him again. That mighty struggle at Shiloh came on. We saw him once in the dread carnage flashing across the field, the incar nation of the splendid warrior. He always rode large and magnificent horses; his fa vorite steed was a gray; and when he was piountcd upon the noble animal he was the beau ideal of a general. His firm graceful scat in the saddle,his majestic proportions, his soldierly carriage, his handsome uni form, his noble countenance, the radiant bearing of knightly chivalry that marked every movement and feature, all leave proud remembrances of gallant and striking manhood far those to dwell upon who knew and loved him. He was killed about twelve o’clock in the first day’s fight. When the historian sits to write what will be the fair chronicles of the turbulent war of those times, he will lovingly dwell upon no character more shining, illustrious and exalted—upon no hero more luminous for chivalry, patriotism, genius and sub lime manhood than Albert Sidney John son. Daniel Webster’s Fright. No situation more perfectly paves the way for a hearty laugh at the end, than of two strangers obliged to be together in mutual terror of each other. Nothing can be more comically uncomfortable than a * couple of honest men eyeing each other skancc an hour or two, when all the time ‘ones afraid and the other darsn’t.” Upon one occasion, Mr. Webster was on his way to attend his duties in Washing ton. He was compelled to proceed at night by stage from Baltimore. He had no trav eling companion and the driver had a sort of felon look, which produced no inconsid erable alarm with the Senator. “I endeav ored to tranquilize myself,’’"said Mr. Web ster, “and had partially succeeded, when we reached the woods between Bladensburg and Washington (a proper scene for mur der or outrage, ) and here I confess, my courage again deserted me.” Just then, the driver, turning to me, with a gruff voice, asked my name. I gave it o him. “Where arc you going ?” said he. The reply was, “To Washington. I am a Senator.” Upon this the driver seized me fervently by the hand and exclaimed : “How glad lam 1 I have been tremb ling in my seat for the last hour, 1 for when I looked at you I took you to be a high wayman.” Of course both parties were re lieved. — j Jrj/" A Man in the dress of a workman was lately walking in the streets of Berlin j with a packet in Ids hand, scaled and in- I scribed with an address, and a note that contained 100 thalers in Treasury bills.— As the bearer appeared to be at a loss, he was accosted by a passenger who asked him what he was looking for. The simple countryman placed the packet in the in quirer’s hand and requested that he would read the address. The reply was made with an agreeable surprise—“ Why, this letter is for mo 1 I have been expecting it j for a long while!” The messenger upon ; this demanded ten thalers lor the carriage of the packet, which was readily paid, ! with a liberal addition to the porter. The ! now possessor of the packet hastened to an i obscure corner to examine his prize; but, on breaking the seal, found nothing but a few sheets of paper, on which was written, “Done!” — A Western paper announces the illness of jits editor, piously adding: “All good paying subscribers are requested to men tion him in their prayers.
