The sentence pronounced against certain Fe?
nians in Dublin is in these terrible words: "That

place of execution; there to be banged by the neck
until you are dead; that your heads be then sever?
ed from your bodies; that your bodies be quarter?
ed and placed at ber moat gracious Majesty's dis?
posal." This Law, it appears, paaaed as lato as the
year 1785, in the time of GEORGE the Third, and,
although there ia no probability of its ever being
carried out, it scandalizes humanity by being re?
tained in the books. But Queen VIOTOBIA, it ii
well known, will never eaforoe such a barbarous en?
actment. The idea of the four quarters of a dyad

SLAVEBT HAS HOT yet been abolished in th?
Empire of Brazil. The announcement of its abo?
lition, which we got some, days ago by way o?
England, through the Atlantic Cable, was prom*
ture. The real facts of the matter, as we are non
assured by the Counselor, DB AZAHBCJA, late
Minister of Brazil, were 'given in an article from
the Rio Diario, which were translated and published
in the Times of the 17th inat. Tho statement there
given was official and authoritative. By thia it
appears that the Brazilian Council of Stato baa
elaborated a project for emancipation, which ia,
however, to form the groundwork of futuro legis?
lativo discussion, This project provides for the
complete extinction of slavery at the close of the
present century ; bat it also provides for the
commencement of the work immediately, by en?
acting (:.) that from the date of ita promulgation
all children born toalavea shall bo free, and (2)
that a ft nd shall be appropriated for {the annual
purchase of a certain number of alav?s. The offi?
cial organ saya that all Brazilians are in favor of
the apir t of this plan, as all detest the institution
of slavery in its principle. There are sufficient
reasons for being satisfied that the plan will be
adopted before long. In the noto of Counselor DB
AZAHBC JA to Secretary SEWARD he Bays that he
does not doubt "that this measure is already re?
solved upon by my Cour :, in principle at least, to
go into e??ct as to tho manner of execution with
the concurrence of the Legislative Chambers."

Jen WORK.-We have now completed our
office so as to execute, in the shortest possible
time, ALL KINDS OF JOB WORK, and we
most respectfully ask the patronage of our
friends.
TRADES'-UNION.
Just now there seems to be considerable agi?
tation in this country and abroad in reference
to the conflict between capital and labor. The
working classes have become completely organ?
ized in the Northern and Western States, as also
in England and France, and are bringing heavily
to bear the powerful influence they can wield,
both for good and for evil, by combined effort:
Buta few weeks ago all London was thrown
into a ferment by a strike of the engine drivers
of one of the largest railways operating from
that populous commercial centre. For nearly
a week the entire current of trade was ob?
structed on the particular line in question. The
value of its stocks declined in the market, and
there were ominous indications that if the points
in issue between the -engine drivers and the
railway company were not amicably adjusted,
the engine drivers of other lines would Suon
take a similar course. A compromise was, how?
ever, effected to the satisfaction of both partie?,
and the trouble passed over, at least for a time.
The apprehensions of what may occur in the
future have not, however, been entirely allay- j
ed. The startling fact waa forced upon a pre?
eminently commercial community that by act?
ing in concert the engine drivers of England
can seriously derange the trade and commerce
of that country for an indefinite period. Al
though comparatively few in number, they are
skilled in their profession by long training, and
it was found that it would be impossible to re
place them adequately if from any cause of dif?
ference with their employers they should com?
bine together to break off work.
But the trouble does not end here. Every
branch of trade or manufacture in England
hus its Trades' Union, and its affiliated socie
ties. ' These organizations have their ramifica
tiona in all parts of the kingdom, and, conti
dent in their numerical strength, they under-I
take not only to regulate the rate of wages,
but to exclude from employment every man,
however skilled a workman he may be, who
refuses to join the association. Latterly these
combinations have assumed an international
phase. The workingmen of England send
greeting to the workingmen of France, encour?
age them in their strikes for higher wages,
supply them with funds to carry on their resis
tance, and actually, as in thc case of the tail
ors' strike in Paris, enter into treaties of alli
ance offensive and defensive with them, as be
tween Potentates engaged in a common cause.
In the North and West we notice that the I
i workingmen's unions have become nearly, if I
! not quite, as dictatorial, and, by making the J
questions of wages and of hours of labor po- I
litical issues, exert- even a more powerful in- I
fluence than their foreign compeers. In Chi?
cago they have carried their measures to such j
an extent as to produce serious riots, and the
Chicago Tribune estimates that for weeks from
sis thousand to ten thousand men had quit
work in that city, demanding more pay and
less hours of labor. That these combinations
muy be beneficial, in some respects, to the
classes whose rights they were originally de
signed to protect, no one will venture to deny.
But, when they assume to control the capital
of the country, and to say what the master
workman shall or shall not do; when, above all,'
they undertake to shape the laws of the land
in their own interest, they do but repeat the
pernicious errors of the Protectionists in an
other form and on another scale.
The ultimate consequences must be to pre
vent enterprising men from undertaking im
portad works, by contracts, involving a stipu- j
lated sum, and by introducing the element of
uncertainty into all such engagements, to di
vert the surplus capital of the country from J
building and manufacturing purposes, into
channels where the investment will draw a
slated annual interest, and from which the
workingmen will derive no benefit whatever. J
TUB CHARLESTON FIRE DEPARTMENT.
We have read the Annual Report of the
Chief of the Fire Department with much inter?
est and satisfnet i on, for in the first paragraph
we find the fellowing cheering assurance, pro
nounced by the very best authority. The
Chief says; "We now have men and engines
enough for any emergency."
During the six months preceding April, I
1866, the Department was called out to 20 fires
and 0 false alarms. The loss by fire in Charles
ton in those six months was $124,000. During
the twelve months preceding April, 1867, there j
were 27 fires in this city and 20 "false alarms."
The losses for this period amount to $112,606;
"yet," adds Mr. NATHAN, "when it is consid?
ered that the first six months after the city
was turned over by the United States forces,
our engines, hos? and appurtenances were in I
a very dilapidated condition, so much so as to
impede our labors, compared with our increas?
ed trade and population the past year, I think
wc have done well. Now all our steamers
have arrived, as also 8000 feet of hose and new
suctions; and I refer with much pleasure to the
promptness with which fires are now ohecked. j
But there are some among us who find fault,
because it happens, occasionally, that too much
water is used. We go to check fires, and if, un
fortunately, water damages wares and mer- j
chandize adjacent to the burning house, the
fault is not ours, nor do we propose to use
more -water than is necessary to stop the spread j1
of a fire." J :
An abundant supply of fresh water Always I
has been, and still is, the great desideratum of I ;
.ur city, and while the tidal drains and numer-1 !
otis fire wells furnish the best substitute at
present at our command, it is to be hoped that
our city authorities, with every successive ad?
ministration, will prosecute with energy, and
to a successful completion, the Artesian Well
enterprise, so hopefully commenced some twen- j
ty years ago.
The Department now has seven Stoam En- I
gines, six Hand Engines, and an excellent j
Truck and Ladders. There are, besides, four I
Hand Engines manned by colored men. Three
companies, two white and one colored, havo
applied for admission into the Department
since April, 1866, but have been refused by the
Board, with the sanction of City Council. "In
doing this," says Mr. NATHAN, "it has been I
with no feeling of prejudice. Eighteen com?
panies for a population like ours is more than
sufficient; a further addition would make it
cumbersome."
The Chief urges the importance of a more
efficient "fire alarm"-a bell to each ward of j
th? oity, he Bays, will accomplish the desired
effect. As regards the causes of fires, he re-1
marks: ,
Quite s number of the fires for the past twelve
fepnths have been the bass act of the incendiary,
cod) the ready sale to Insurance Companies m
Bk' npent times, will moke it incumbent on all In?
surance organizations to be careful bow they issue
aplicies to itinerant and suspicious parties; and,
until we can bring to juatioo evil disposed persons,
the torch will, in many oases, be applied where the
sal? of merchandise is slow.
Statement A gives a detailed account of fires
and alarma from May 4, 1866, to April 28,
1867, of the amount of damage, and both of
the amount of insurance and in what agencies
the property had been insured.

surance Companies from May 1, 1866, to April
28, 1867," as follows :

I have been for a year or more past in the habit ot
taking tile water of the "Excelsior" Spring of Saratoga.
Accustomed during the great portion of my invalid hie
to use the different waters of the several fountains which
boil up along that remarkable valley, dependent indeed,
upon them tor much of the comfort I enjoy, I am satis?
fied that the Excelsior Water Isas well adapted as any
other among them, if not more so, to the purposes tor
which they are generally employed. It is very agreeable,
strongly impregnated with the carbonic acid, lively and
sparkling. * * * I can heartily and conscientiously
recommend it to all who need a gentle cathartic and
diuretic. SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D.
The Water ls put up in Pint and Quart bottles, and
packed in good order for shipping. Pinta in boxes ot
four dozen each, and Quarts in boxes of two dosen each
