ployment of toe War Department, were caugh

even to get a change of clothing, or let their
f iends know where they were. These gentle?
men included some of the best men in the land.
A number of thom being in New York, they
determined to hold a meeting to express their
opinions of public affairs and of the pe i ty ty?
ranny from which they suffered. They wiil
put forth an address, no doubt, which will fall
upon the guilty men who persecuted them as
did the maledictions of those apparitions con?

-The nations of Europe are all vehemently
ISnsisting that the preservation of the peace of |
the continent is the object most earnestly de
! sired by each of them. Thus Gen. Von Moltke,
Chief of Staff to the King of Prussia, and I
I planner of the great Prussian campaign of J
1866* recently made a speech in the North Ger?
man Parliament, in which he said that no one
desired move than himself that'the immense
suma now devoted by the various States of |
Europe to warlike objects might be turned to
purposes of peace. The only meaos of bring?
ing about such a result would be the establish?
ment in the midst of Europe of a non-aggres?
sive power which wonld be Btrong enough to
prevent all its neighbors from making war ;
and thia power must be Germany. And again,
Minister Rouher, of France, says that a strong
\ French army is a pledge of peace, that Napo?
leon accepts German unity and the rights of I
nationalities, and that France has no idea of j
war except in defence of her territory. When
the principle is once admitted that a non-ag?
gressive power must le established ju Europe
strong enough to repress the warlike tendencies
of ita neighbors, each nation endeavors to be?
come that overruling authority in questions
of peace and wax. So there appears to be no
prospect of a general disarmament so long as
both France and Prussia insist on holding the
first place on the list.
SATURDAY MORNING JULY ll, 1868.

Let Charleston Speak!
The return of the South Carolina delega?
tion from the National Democratic Conven?
tion should be signalized by the holding of |
a mass ratification meeting in this, the
commercial and financial capital of the
State. Our tacit, though hearty approval
of the nomination of. SE YMG U H and BLAIR.
as the standard-bearers of the National
Democracy is not sufficient; nor is it enough
that we esteem most highly the dignified
manner in which our delegates discharged
their grave and important duties. Our dele
gates are entitled to a public recognition of |
their services, and, above all, the.grand and
stirring platform of the Democratic party of j
the United States-our "new declaration of |
independence-demands at the bands of our
people such on approval and ratification as
can only be given by a mass meeting whose
voice shall be heard from the waters of the
Cooper and Ashley to the mountains of the
The struggle before us is a bard one, and
the victory canjmly be won by* unremitting
exertion, and by kindling those fires of en?
thusiasm which ceased to burn when the
soldiers ?f the. Confederacy sheathed their
blunted swords. Our opponents say that
the people of South Carolina are cowed,
that three years of military despotism have
made them women in strength, and less
than women in fortitude and patriotic cour?
age. This we can now disprove, for the
time for waiting and for silence is past.
There is no longer reason why our tongues
should be tied. We may speak with bold?
ness and act with determination. Carolina
has clasped her hands and bowed her head
for thrice twc Ire anxious months, but now
we may strike the shackles from our limbs,
clear-the scales from our eyes, and go heart
and soul into that contest upon whose re?
sult depends our lives, liberties and for?
This contest cannot-better be inaugurat?
ed than by holding a mass meeting in this
city, at which our delegates may address
the Charleston Democracy upon the politi?
cal situation. Their visit to the National
Convention has brought them in contact
with the most eminent statesmen in the
land. They will be able to give us words
of counsel, and, we believe, of good cheer,
and then every man present may pledge
himself to the work of our political regener?
ation by joining in a unanimous ratification
of the nominations and platform of the
National Democratic party.
Governor Seymour's Financial Views.
In view of the fact that Governor SEY?
MOUR has become the standard-bearer of
the Democratic party, the points of the pow?
erful Bpeech which he delivered about two
weeks ago, at the Cooper Institute mass
meeting in New York, assume an interest
and importance far beyond what has hith?
erto been attached to (hem. The speech
was mainly directed to the consideration of
the financial condition of the country. Gov?
ernor SETMC?B claims, in the first place,
that the moneyed and tax policy of the Rad?
ical party has produced sectional jealousies
between the Eastern and Western States,
divided the Union into debtor and cred?
itor States, given to labor and business
a debased currency and to the untaxed
bondholder sterling coin, and that this de-,
predation and all the jarring^terests con?
nected with the subject, are due to the dis?
honor of our national credit, sinking the
value of bonds, greenbacks and bank notes,
and which-is itself the result of the un?
heard-of extravagance and wastefulness of j
those now dominating the government.
Governor SKTXOUB supports his position by
an irresistible array of facts and figures, os
well as reasonings. He shows that since
July 1, 1905, about three months after the
surrender of Gen. LEE, up to July I, 1868, the
cost of the government will be, by official
reports and estimates, $820,390,208, and
that up to July 1, 1869, by the estimate of J
the chairman of the Committee of Ways
and Means, it will be $107,973,466, making
for four years $1,018,363,574, which enor?
mous amount does not include one cent paid
or to be paid for interest or principal of the
public debt. The public expenditures du?
ring the four years before the war, leaving
out interest on debt, were $256,226,414,
showing that the Radicals have spent in a
time of peace four dollars where one was
spent in the four years before the war.
The growing coBt of government, Governor
S KIMO CE granta, might justify the Radicals
in spending two dollars where one was
spent formerly, which" would make $512,
425,828, but they have spent $505,910,646
beyond this, which, if it had been used to
pay the debt, would have carried the
national credit to the highest point, tax?
payers would be relieved, and mechanics,
laborers and pensioners be paid iu money
as good as coin. For a considerable period
succeeding the war, it was of the utmost
importance that our vast currency should
be contracted, and through the persistent
efforts of Secretary MCC?LLOCH that policy
was enforced until within a few months,
and a large reduction was effected. The
volume of currency is probably not at pres?
ent too great, under a healthful state of ?
business, and Governor SETMOUR rightly
holds now that it is to be improved by con?
tracting the* expenses of the government,
wh'ch cannot be expected from the Repub
licau.policy, which has sunk the value of j
our currency more than eight per cent, in
the past two years, and to the continuance
of which that party is pledged. He main?
tains that with the removal of the party in
power, and the ? sucoess of their political
opponents, economy, low taxes and sol?
vency will prevail, greenbacks in due time
will be at par, and the whole question of re
' pudiation settled to the general satisfaction.
The facts are that the political elements
dominating the country the past three years
of peace have not accomplished the things
needed to xeatore the national credit and
the consequent prosperity of the people,
relieving them from the burdens of exces?
sive taxation, attendant upon national ex?
travagance. The country, therefore, now
loses hope ia those who have so disappoint?
ed it, and the people naturally look about
to see whence the needed relief may come.
They will accept it from any quarter whence
it is likely to be obtained, and will caSt
themselves upon any organization or ally
themselves with any movement worthy of J
their confidence for the attainment of the
great end in view.
The Valedictory or Ex-Governor Orr.
The valedictory address of Ex-Governor
ORE, published this morning, is addressed
"To the People of South Carolina,'' and
mainly consists(of an explanation of the
reasons which governed his political course
during the last two years. As Governor
ORB can no longer profess to speak " For
the People of South Carolina," it is not ne?
cessary to criticise either his own opinions
or the advice he offers to others, and it
would be neither just nor generous to speak
harshly at this time of one who, whatever
his political errors, has devoted the whole
of his great ability to the service of the
Messrs. HAEPER & BROS., of New York,
have just published a revised edition of the
charming work by JEAN MACE, entitled
"The History of' a Mouthful of .Bread."
The English translation by Mrs. GATTY has
been carefully compared with the original,
and numerous important corrections have
been made. As a work, it is as interesting
to the grown reader as it is fascinating to
the child, and it may be made the means
"of mastering, almost as a mere amuse

translation of a companion work by JEAN

readers. It is charmingly written, and. is

The Democratic platform, it will be remem?
bered, was telegraphed in full, and exclu?
sively, on Wednesday last, to THE DAILY
NEWS. Our city contemporaries, whose
readers were thirsting for the document,
stood on their dignity and disdained to
avail themselves of the early copy thus
placed at their disposal. What was the
consequence? The Couricr,yesterday, prints
as part of the platform a series of resolu?
tions which had no connection whatever
with that instrument, and which were not
even adopted by the Convention. The Mer?
cury makes a still more egregious blunder.
It prints a siring of resolutions totally dif?
ferent from those passed by the Conven?
tion, and-has the modesty to declare that
its own version is "a correct copy of the
platform." But it is better late than never,

LOW WATER DEIECTOR
PREVENTS THE EXPLOSION OR BUBNING
OUT OF STEAM BOILERS.
THE PPIME CAUSE OF STEAM BOILER EX?
PLOSIONS ARISES FROM A DEFICIENCY OF
WATER IN THE BOILER WHILE TN
EXPLOSIONS FROM DEFICIENCY OF WATER.
Low water in steam boilerels no unusual occur?
rence. Imminent dinger frequently arises from this
cause, and it cannot be too forcibly impressed upon
the minds of engineers, that there is no port of the
apparatus constituting the mountings of a boiler
which requires gi eater attention than that which sup?
plies it with water, lu a properly constructed boil?
er every part of the metal exposed to the action of
the fire ehould bo in immediate contact with the wa
t-r and when proper provision is made to maintain
the'water at a sufficient height above the parts so
exoosed, accidents eau never occur from thia cause.
Should the irater, however, get low from defects in
the pump, and the surface over the fire become over?
heated, then, even at the ordinary working pressure,
there is great danmor of au explosif n. There ls no
occasion, under such circumstances, to search furth?
er for the cause ot'explosion, from the fact that the
material, when overheated to a certain degree loses
about fire-sixths of its strength, and is, therefore,
unable to resist the internal pressure. When a
boiler becomes short of water, the first thing usual?
ly done is to put tho feed pump in action; this cer?
tainly remedies the deficiency, but increases the
danger, and may lead to tte explosion of the boiler.
Ashcroft's Low Water Detector
Ii eminently fitted to guard against accidents caused
by low water. Itneedsnotthe care or attention of
the engineer or fireman to keep it m order. Opera?
ting by the force of natur il laws, it takes care of it?
self, and is only called into action by the fall of the
water below any fixed level, and then it gives the
alarm to all within sound of the whistle of a defi?
cient supply ot water.
It stands as a watchful monitor over the magazine
of power on which it is placed, and not only guards
it, but notifies ito attendant, if he is forgetful or
negligent of his duty.
