In the haunts of the "silent city" I wandered along one day ; TheaKure shone bright aliove me. And the month was lovely May. I almost envied the sleepers, TNeatb the cvpress laid to rest. So quiet and sweetly they slumbered. As If in the land of the blest. Affection guiding me onward, I came to my mother's-grave. While close to her side there nestled A brother whom God to us gave. Beside her an evergreen thrifty Encircled its branches around. But more to the side of my brother Twining over and nnder the ground. As from out of the heart of our mother Affection was beaming so bright. Enfolding and circling our brother With a love that knoweth no night. And as I was turning to leave them. Whose forms rested peacefully there, I thanked the all-Father in heaven. Though mute with a dull despair. That they had years ago been taken From bitterness, sorrow and care, And found a kind welcome with angels. And a blest reception there. THE STORY OF A MUTINY. It was d urine the earlier days of the Army of the Potomac if I mistake not, shortly after Mct'lellan had sat down to the siepe of Yorktown and before that army had received that baptism of fire and blood, and had eained that terrible discipline in the soldier's duty, which the campaign of uie next turee years urougnt it, mat one of its infantry regiments openly mutinied. Of course, that regiment was not without its grievance ; even the worst of soldiers (and these were by no means such) never undertake to revolt against discipline aud to de fy orders without cause for complaint. The regiment in question, although less than six months under arms, and never yet under fire, had performed difficult andarduous service. Both be fore Yorktown aud elsewhere, these men had patiently and faithfully done their part ; they had marched thro' long nights over muddy roads, when sleep overtook them in the ranks while they wearily plodded on ; they bad bivouacked on the cold ground, shelterless and without fire ; they had unmurmuringly laid aside the mus ket and toiled in the trenches under soaking rains. Yet all this time they had not received a cent of pay ; aud clothing was scantily and tardily fur nished tlieni. Why it was, I never exactly learn -ed; but those who were In the volun teer service can readily understand how careless and incompetent officers may cause such injustice as this to brave and deserving men. For mouths they had submitted to this cruel ne glect, while the other regiments of the brigade had been paid aud clad with comparative promptness; and the respectful representations they had from time to time forwarded to their regimental commander had produced no results. At first loud aud bitter complaints were heard from them; then, as time passed aud their condi tion was not bettered, a silence suc ceeded which the officers should have seen was ominous of a desperate pur pose. That purpose was reaeueu without the knowledge of an officer or an orderly sergeant; excepting these, it had the assent of every man present with the regiment. Mutiny was their determination ; and the ringleaders waited a few days for an occasion to make their action perfect ly effectual. The occasion came; just the one that had been anticipated and desired. The regiment was not at that time on duty in the trenches; its labors had entitled it to a rest, and it had been drawn back to an open spot some dis tance from the line of the brigade. It lay in the prescribed form of infantry encamnmeut a canvas village with ten streets, each bounded by a row of tents on either side, ana me parade ground directly in front. Dress-parade had been held for several even ings ; and on that preceding the morn ing of the mutiny, the arms were left stacked in regimental line, with a guard over them. This was probably in obedience to general orders to the whole command, and intended as a precaution to insure readiness in case of a sally by the enemy. After the retreat had sounded that night, the order was communicated to each com pany that the arms were to be taken after reveille roll-call the following morning: and in the silence of the night other orders were secretly com municated to the men by the ring leaders, and the mutiny was ripe. The night passed, and with the gray of dawn the shriek and rattle of re veille resounded successively from the camps of a hundred regiments, ana the drum-corps of this one speedily aroused it from slumber. The offi cers, hardly awake, heard the confu sion, the buzzing and humming caus ed bv tins calling of the names of Brown, Jones and Robinson, and the rest, by the orderlies; and then the mingled command from ten throats : "Take arms !" A pause, a silence followed ; then angry and vehement expostulation ; but no rattle or clash 6uch as the tak ing of arras from the stack causes. The command was repeated and reit erated, with more expostulation ; and next the commandant of each compa ny was visited by the vexed, scared face of his first sergeint,and the start line information that the company would not take arms. Some of the officers received the intelligence with incredulity ; some gave vent to their vexation, ana unjustly upuraiuea uie poor orderlies ; but all finally put on their swords and repaired to the scene of mutiny, with substantially the same remark : "We'll see if they won't take arms for me." They did see; and they quickly as sured themselves that the men would not put forth a hand in obedience to this particular order. "Attention !" shouted the captain of the first company; ana every man promptly came to position. "Take arms!" Not a hand stirred. "Right face!" The command was instantly obeyed. "Front!" The company came back to line with beautiful precision. "Take arms!" But not a hand answered the words though Captain M vociferated them to the full compass of his powerful bass. bo in every company, me men promptly obeyed every order but this one ; ana mat, not a man ooe3ea. Not a word, not even a defiant look accompanied their disobedience; they simply stood like so many Btatues,and moved not a muscle in answer to the command. The captains threatened, begged, and some swore ; and neither their anger nor their humility had the least effect upon those seven hundred determined men. After half an hour of unavailing effort, despairing of ac complishing anything themselves,the commandants repaired to the colonel's tent, and astounded him with the news that his regiment was in open mutiny. He listened with angry im- Eatience to the particulars they gave im, and then hastened to buckle on his sword. "Come with me," he said. "By heavens, I don't think they'll fail to obey when give them the order." He was mistaken ; as much so as the captains had been before him. The line stood motionless behind: the stacks when he reached the parade; and ordering the officers to take their pla ces, he took his own, in front of the centre. Drawing his sword, he shout ed in the voice that no man in the regiment had ever yet disregarded : "Take arm!" And still not a man obeyed. The colonel was profoundly excited; more so than he had been since he dropped the plough-handles and mounted one of the plough horses to raise his regiment, on hearing of the President's proclamation. He began bv inviliuir the rineleaders to step out and inform him of the object of this mutiny. The ringleaders wisely re mained iu their places la the ranks; but half a dozen voices, in which no individual voice was distinguishable, cried out : "We want pay and clothing, like the other reeiments." "You shall have both," the colonel eagerly responded. "Only take arms and return to your duty,- and 1 will immediately represent your grievan ces at headquarters." A tumult of answering cries follow ed his words, uttered in anger, deri sion, and incredulity. "It's all work and no pay with us." "We're the ragged scace-crows of the brigade." We've heard that story before." "Tell that to the marines." "No pay, no muskets." "Attention!" shouted the colonel; aud the regiment instantly came back to silence and position. Thereupon the colonel made an earnest and impassioued harangue of fifteen minutes, while dozens of curi ous spectators from the neighboring regiments stood about, viewing the extraordinary scene. He promised the men that he would give his per s6n:U attention to theirgrievances un til tfTey were redressed ; he represent ed to them that their mutiny would certainly be ineffectual for the pur poses they sought; and he begged them to save the good nameof the regiment from the disgrace with which their disobedience threatened it. Hardly doubting that his address would pro duce the desired effect, he concluded it with a repetition of the command : "Take annt ."' Each and all stood like a rock ; and not a single hand moved toward the muskets. The mutiny was becoming serious. For more than an hour the entire regi ment had stubbornly refused to re sume their arms, and the persuasion aud authority as well of the com manding officer as of the line had fallen iillv unon their ears. The ex cited colonel ordered, "Break ranks," which was quietly obeyed ; aud call in a for his horse, he rode off on a gal lop to brigade headquarters. Our brigadier naa come irom uie regular cavalry to accept his com mand in the volunteers: and he was one of the best disciplinarians that West Point ever gave to tue army. He was much past the middle age, and had seen arduous and distin guished service in Mexico and the West- He was a man of medium height, or perhaps something above it, with hair dashed with gray, sandy whiskers and moustache, a massive forehead, aud face with the wrinkles of service, aud bushy eyebrows, over hanging a pair or Keen, incisive eyes. , t l.l.;t.lln ctorn X11S UreseUUC uuuuuau, viu. somewhat forbidding; the habitual expression of his face was one of de termination. Yet he had one of the kindest of hearts, and his commands invariably learned, before he had done with them, that their comrort and safety were at all times theobjecu of his anxious solicitude. He was far braver than generals are apt to bo ; when his troops went into battle he was always upon the line with them, exposed to the fire ; and not bhendan himself was more carelessof personal danger, more reckless of bullets, at Opequan aud Cedar Creek, than was this man. wis troops oi course ioveu him when thev knew him. He listened to the story of the colonel on this morning with evident displeasure, which found expression in a few words which were more for cible than elegant : but I venture to say that no general officer in the ar mies would have said less under the circumstances. He listened attentive ly to the details of the mutiny as the colonel gave them.and when the latter had finished, ne said : "Thev won't take arms eh?" "No, sir, they won't. Any order they'll obey, but not that." "Well.sir, are any of your officers in this business?" "Not one. General, nor any of the orderlies," was uie eager reply. The General took one turn across bis tpnt-floor. "Return to vourcamp, sir," he said, "and assemble vour officers in front of vour tent I'll be there in a few moments." The colonel rode away, not very ea sy in mind, and wondering what was about to Happen, l ue general oraer ed his horse and called in his aides. "Get up vour horses immediately. Captain , ride over to Captain ; ?ive him mv compliments, and tell him to brine a section of his artillery to the camp of the th Ontonagon Infantry, immediately! Lieutenant , hasten to Colonel and Colo nel (commauding regimentsof the brigade), and tell them, with my compliments, to march their coin mands, under arms, to the same place. You will accomnanv them there." A few moments later the men of the rebellious reeiuient. gathered Into knots in the company streets and about the parade, and conferring in whispers together, saw the general, followed by a single orderly, ride thro' the camn back to the colonel's tent. Some of them saw from a distance that the officers were fonned in a sin' ele line in front of the tent, with the field officers on the right, the captains next, and the lieutenants on the left. The general dismounted, and tak ing a brief survey of the faces before him, turned to the colonel. "Sir," be said sternly, "do you re fuse to pertorm duty 7" "No, sir!" was the emphatic ans wer. He turned to the line, and passing down it, addressed the same question to each officer, beginning with the lieutenant-colonel and ending with the last subaltern. One and all un hesitatingly gave the same response as the colonel. "Now, sir,' said the general to the latter, "get your men in line. 1 11 end t hw mitrtrefiir in ton minntM ' ' this outbreak in ten minutes. And then he added the same re mark that the officers of the regiment had made : "We shall see if they'll disooey me. The assembly was sounded. The companies formed in their streets, and were marched to their places in line behind the stacks. The faces of the men were grave and serious, but gen erally showed no abatement of pur pose, 'i nai purpose was, it was after ward confessed, not to resume their arms until the paymaster and the quartermaster should have actually visited them and given them their dues of pay and clothing. But in many of these faces there was anxiety as well as determination visible, and all, officers and men, awaiting the general's proceedings with such feel ings as had never before been theirs. They had now long to wait. Two regiments of the brigade marched upon the ground, and under the di rection of the aides were formed in a longjine, facing the mutineers, at sheudered arms, perhaps seventy yards distant. Captain , with two pieces of artillery, came up before the formation was finughetfj and by simi lar direction one piece was posted upon each flank of the line in such a manner as to enfilade an entire wing of the mutineers. ' For half a minute after these oniU ous dispositions there was an unlaw ful silence. It was broken by the voice of the general in the stern com mand : ' -'Load !" The long line of muskets went to the ground with a shock, and the ringing of rammers in the barrels, and the thumping in the bore of the Cannon, sent a thrill to the nerves of those who looked and listened. "Load with grape," was the com mand to the artillery. Then followed the orders : "Ready ! Aim V The aspect of the scene when the general rode between the lines, paus ing in tne centre ana racing the muti neers, was such as might well have carried apprehension to the stoutest heart. At least one thousand bright musket barrels were levelled, ready for the word that would hurl their deadly contents into the breasts be fore them, while upon either flank was a field-piece charged with grape, the gunner stauding lanyard in nana. only waiting for the word to belch out destruction upon tne misguided men "Let the officers retire behind the brigade line," the general command ed. They did so. "Men of the regiment," he said in stentorian tones, "listen to me! 1 shall not stoii now to inquire why you have disgraced yourselyes and the command this morning by disobedi ence to your officers. I shall merely give you one order. If you obey, well, if not you will nave nootnercnance, In that case. I shall move to the rear of the brieade. and then by the liv ing God, 1 will blow every man oi you to destruction ! He looked the threat, as well as ut tered it; and then, in a voice of thun der, he gave the command : xtikc arms I It was done on the instant. Never did the regiment execute that order in better lime; tne stacks were oro ken. and the mutineers, fairly fright ened out of their folly, again stood with shouldered arms. The whole command was brought to an order ; and the general, speak- ine with difficulty from the emotions oi the moment, addressee tne regt ment with such kindness as brought tears to the eyes of many a tall soldier. He briefly pointed out to them the niacnituJe of thsir act as a military offence, and made them understand that mutiny in an army can never re sult in anything but discredit, or worse, to those who undertake it; and he reminded them that the cause in which all were engaged was most injured by such acts of insubordina tion. Their cause of complaint were just, he said, and if their officers were in fault they should be punisnea lor it. "Full justice shall be done you, and speedily," he said; "but in future, never let me hear from you in mis way. There are other and better ways to cor rect evils in the ranks than this." He left the ground with the respect and affection of every man there ; but his interview with the officers, which immediately followed, was of a differ ent character. Addressing himself to all, but more particularly to the colonel, he gave them an excoriating lecture upon their carelessness and gross neglect of the interests of their men. "I should be glad to think," he con cluded, that none of you are troubled with incompetency as well as careless ness. You are all of you to blame in this matter ; nothing of this kind ev er happens unless the officers are in fault. And I give you distinctly to understand that i.f anything of this sort ever occurs here again, I'll court martial every one of you." He never had occasion to execute the (ureat. The regiment was paid up and clothed within a week ; aud from this time forward every man and every officer of it made it his particu lar duty to efface the stigma cast upon the regiment by this affair. That they succeeded, the records of the ar duous campaigns and bloody battles in which it bore a heroic part, and which are written in the history of their country, will attest. JAMES FRANKLIN FITTS. AN OPEN POLAR SEA. A correspondent of the Missouri Republican strongly maintains the existence of an open polar sea. We quote a characteristic paragraph : Midshipman Griffin, commanding the Rescue, in search of Sir John Franklin, saw in Baffin's Bay a huge iceberg, tearing its way through the heavy surface ice with the noise of a thousand cannons, passing, as he graphically described i t, " like a shot. " This berg was going to the north. To understand this phenomena of a field of dense surface ice, eight to ten feet thick, going south, and an immense mountain of ice rushing north, can only be explained on the theory of an under and counter current. The berg hundreds of feet under the sur face and plunging down to the lower and swifter current, was necessarily forced along against all obstacles. This warm current river found in the soundings of the polar region below twenty -eight degrees, (under the freezing point of salt water,) rises to the surtace at the poie ana produces the " water-sky" seen by Parry and Kane. The latter, indeed reports an open sea north of 82. Leaving their ice-bound ship, the doctor aud his party traveled over ice nnder incredi ble Hardships, and at length reached an open sea. Its waves were dashing on the icy shore with the sound of a mighty ocean. Here was indeed a sight to gladden the heart after so many fatigues and dangers. Ah! if he only had his good ship to spread her sails on this lone-sbueht sea! The tide swelled and rolled, and seals and water fowl were feeding and sporting on its waters. They meas ured the temperature of the water and iouna it only 30 . An unbroken solitude seemed to stretch away to the mysterious pole, nor sight nor sound nor sign of human being met eye or ear. It was on that primal day when the voice of God called th "uiauy waters into one place." After feasting their eyes on the long-sought sea, and bathing their hands and face in its clear blue waters, the party re turned to their ice-bound ships, hav ing seen wnat few nave seen or may see an open sea at the north pole.

[From the New York Herald, July 17.] Owing to the intense heat of the weather, yesterday, tne congrega tion at the Church of the Strangers was not as large as usual, although there was still a goodly number pres ent. Dr. Deems, the popular pastor, preached a very eloquent and able sermon upon the subject of " The Liberty which Christ Gives," and selected his text from the first verse of sixth chapter of the Epistle to the Galatians stand fast, tnererore, in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free." The first intent of this letter from Paul to the Gala tians was to correct a false impression which had been made concerning himself, and the next to set his breth ren right on the great question of sal vation. After he had left them teach ers came who, to break his force, declared that he was not in the aposH tolic succession. His contempt for such a succession was immeasurable. He was an Apostle not made by man, but bearing the signs of Jesus, and that was better than any of their" suc cessions." When a man becomes sur passingly great THE ECCLESIASTICAL DILETTANTI. Beein to examine his credentials, and to inquire whether he is doing every thing "orderly" and according to some " constitution ;" as if personal greatness were not its own credential ; as if any man had not a right to do any great or beautiful or good thing he had the power to do. All this opposition was from that set and stereotyped characteristic of Juda ism, which, when Jesus appeared, had made that religion powerless to do good any longer. Jesus Christ brought liberty. He freed the world. He flung the shut gates open. The Judaizing teachers were striving to pull the free Christians bacK to tne bondage of forms and ceremonies, a ritual and sacreoouu ruie. x-aui urges them to stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free. The Doctor urged that Jesus did not introduce or encourage licentiousness. He made men free from "entangle ments" and " bondage," not from law. He released men from that which kept men from being obedient to law. Men had not been FREE TO SERVE GOD. The sense of truilt which comes to every man who is conscious of hav ing sinned is in tne way oi inis ser vice. Paul says that the animation of this service is "the faith which works by love." Guilt breaks faith. We cannot trust fully one toward whom we feel guilty. So long as man feels that he has wronged God, and there has been no reconciliation, he cannot trust God nor work lov ingly for the interests of God, no matter what his ideas of the good ness of God may be. That is the load which Jesus lifts. He demonstrates to the world the lovingness or the Heavenly Father toward the erring child, and His desire to have His children's love, and thus makes rec onciliation possible and faith strong, and love sweet and active. That is one reason why such frightful sin ners become such radiant saints when they are converted. It is the re bound. The load wnicn presaeu mem falls, the infirmity or fetter which bound them breaks, and they leap nnd shout and praise God. Not onlv the entanelements of guilt, which is at once a memory and a consciousness, but the entanglement of loving to sin and or forming siniui habits is broken. FREE TO SERVE GOD. THE OFFERING-OF JESUS For the sins of the world sets sin in such a lurid light and makes the beauty of holiness so conspicuous that Jesus beine lifted up draws men unto Himself. The love of a noble human being, however distant, lifts a man, and makes him ieei a norror whenever he thinks of letting him self down below the place of that love. Many a man wants to serve God and cannot, because of his sinful habits. It is the knowledge of Jesus which proves an attraction stronger than the fascination of sin. The love of Jesus breaks the chain and sets men free to do rieht. The world has never sufficiently given credit to Jesus for the power He imparts to men of breaking the entanglement of prejudice, that baa habit of reaching and acting upon decisions that have no basis in right. JESUS WAS AN ICONOCLAST. He broke the idols and images. He taught that the manhood of a man was inside in character and nean, not in office or profession. Pharisee or pub lican. phvlacterv or punic. priest or centurion, all these were nothing, but truth and courage, and faith and love were everything. And you cannot tell by a man's birthplace, or pro fessed creeds, or official tokens, how much of these he has. A saint might sit on Cajsar's throne and a devil wear the hiebnriest's breastplate. It is not the imperial purple nor the urium and thummim, but the maul Jesus set men free from the entanglement of prejudice on account of nationality or position. The Roman was free to enter the " Holiest of Holies," and the Jew was free to roam the world and preach the gospel of love to every creature. It was lastly shown us how Jesus bad set us FREE FROM CHURCHISM. By that word the Doctor said he meant all those ideas of a close corpo ration in which all were saints aud outside of which all were sinners. possessing corporate powers to refuse grace or comer anu transmit gnwc He did not believe such a thing ex isted, although he knew there were a score of different claimants. He was sure that Jesus came partly to set men free from just that kind of thing. Hp illustrated it at some leneth. as in circumcision and the Sabbath laws of the rigid Pharisees, and in the neces sity of worshipping in the temple at Jerusalem. Jesus set men free from these things, and Paul taught that "in Jesus Christ neither circumci sion availeth anything nor uncircum cision, but faith which worketh by love," that being in the church, mere observance of rites would not save a mart, nor could any man, on the other side, boaat that he gains by not being in the church ; that being in or out was a mere circumstance ; but if a man led a life wholly ani mated by A FAITH IN GOD. Which was active and which was not the result of logic, not a belief reached merely by a demonstration, but was the product of love, and was kept working by love. Then he alluded to the liberty wherewith Christ made us free. Men do not love Jesus because they believe in Him, do not love God because they believe in Him, but be lieve in Him because they love Him. " With the heart man believes unto righteousness." Being freed from fuilt and sin and the power of preju ice and reliance upon mere forms, a man thus has all his faculties " free" to serve God. There is no bond in heaven or earth so strong to hold, so sweet to wear, so hard to break as love. The perfection of love is the perfection of liberty. In conclusion the Doctor alluded to thia hoinc the anniversary of the day on which ho had begun to preach in the University, and made touching allusion to the growth and prosperity and unanimity in his church.

From the Scientific American. Prof. John Darby, writing for the American Oroctr, anticipates that, not long hence, the vial of chloral will take its place beside the camphor bot tle and other household remedies, dis placing, to a great degree, the pare goric and laudanum, upturn and its derivatives have held a high place in the esteem of mankind; and, after centuries of use, are to-day more highly prized than ever before. We have felt consoled, that, in our extreraest agonies, we had within our reach an agent that could arrest or mitigate our sufferings, and give us ease and quiet. But connected with the use of opium, there are sequels that are disagreea ble. Headaches, sickness of the stomach, loss of appetite, and other unpleasant results are sure to follow its administration. How much more highly should we esteem opium if these unpleasant consequences could be avoided. If we could command sleep and not suffer, on waking, as the price for our rest. If our pains could be relieved, and our deliverer would leave no sting behind. Chloral seems to ruinii these condi tions. It produces refreshing sleep from the most excruciating pains, and the sleeper awakes as from a natural sleep, with no unpleasant symptoms from tne action oi tne cniorai. Chloral was discovered by Liebig in 1S32, and stood more than thirty years in the list of recorded discoveries, ex citing interest outside the field of chemistry. On the 2d of June, 18tt), it was brought before the .Medical Society of Berlin, Prussia, as a new hipnotic (producer of sleep) and anaes thetic, by Dr. Otto Liebreich. Pure chloral is a colorless fluid, with a sharp pungent taste and odor not disagreea ble. When united with one atom of water, it becomes a white solid, retain ing its odor and taste. It dissolves rapidly in water, it m not an anes thetic, as chloroform, protoxide of ni trogen and ether are, as it does not usually produce lnsensibinty wnen it produces sleep, unless given in large quantities. Its true influence is to produce sleep as naturally as inougn thev had taken nothimr. The cat is said to lie down, adjust her paw, and with her accustomed low purr, pass into the state of sleep, and after five or six hours wake up naturally, as from ner accustomed siumoer. so in ine human subjects, it produces a peaceful sleep of any length of time, depend ing on the dose given. The followine points have been well established in regard to efficient doses of the hydrate of chloral. 1. It produces deep sleep quickly after administration. 2. The action produces no excite ment. 3. No bad effects result from its action. 4. The brain first affected, then the lungs, and lastly the heart. The heart is said to beat, when fatal doses have been token, after all other functions have ceased. Extensive experiments have been made on the lower animals todevelope the properties of chloral and they nave ail been in coniormity to tne above principles. We select the fol lowing cases reported in European journals. An insane person, in a high state of excitement, was put to sleep in a few minutes by twenty grains and slept five hours. A woman with a painful inflammation of the wrist joint, was put to sleep by forty grains of chloral. A lady suffering internally from an intractable attack of sciatica, who could not be relieved by mor phine an atropa, took thirty grains of chloral which produced a night or perfectly tranquil sleep, from which she awoke fresh and well as from a natural slumber. A lady suffered from prolonged neuralgia, and all ordinary sedatives proved unavailing, when forty grains of choral produced imme diate relief. In nervous excitement, preventing sleep, chloral acts with promptness and with no evil results. It is evident ly invaluable in a severe pain result ing from rheumatism, neuralgia, sprains or dislocation. It reduces the animal temperature, and affords relief in cases of fever attended with rest lessness and excitement. It produces muscular relaxation, and must afford relief in the horrid torture produced bv the nassaire of pall stones or the gravel from the kidneys. The action or chloral on the system is supposed to depend on the chemical fact that alkalies decompose and pro duce chloroform and formic acio. The blood is alkaline, and as the chloral comes in contact with it chloroform is produced, and its appropriate effects follow. This takes place throughout the system, thus producing a univer sal effect, and not a local one, as when cmoroiorm itseii is taKen. A Word to Farmers of the United. States.

At the same time a wast ine drought in France has shortened her crops one-half and reduced the price oi ner live stock to almost nothing, owing to the scarcity of forage: and uie same drought, more or less disas trous in its effects, has been felt, and still prevails, from the Baltic to the Black Hea. t rom these facts it is ap- Sarent mar, mere win oe an extraor inary demand all over Europe for tne next twelve montns lor our sur plus breadstuff's and provisions of all descriptions.

Y. Herald. The Decatur (IU.) Republican, of the 7th, says: "While the election was going on last Saturday, one soli tary individual was observed at one of of the voting places, laboring to con vince those that came up to vote that they ought to cast their ballots against the new constitution. Being asked why he was so bitterly opposed to the instrument, he said taxes were high enough with one constitution, aud if we had two the people would not be able to pay the additional burden. Some one enlightened his understand ing on this point, but he changed his tactics and said : 'Isn't our present constitution, that was made by Wash ington and Jackson, good enough for anybody?" Again he was informed of his error, but he had evidently pre pared himself for any emergency that might arise, and triumphantly closed the argument by straightening him self up and ejaculating: "Well, damn tne nigger, anyhow!"

From the Columbus Journal. The developments in the case of the attempted escape of Charles Clrich, the counterfeiter, from the Peniten tiary on Saturday morning, published yesterday in the Journal, created uni versal surprise and general excite ment. There were no doubt many of Ulrica's accomplices or old associates waiting the news of his release with great anxiety. It is quite sure that some persons had come to this city to assist in penecting arrangements, and the chapter of developments in the journal was tne nrst authoritative an nouncement of the result to start them on their homeward iournev. io new iactsoi special interest were brought to light yesterday, onlv it is supposed mat otners tnan those nam ed were concerned in the transaction, outside the prison. This man. Charles Ulrich. is a pecu liar individual. He was employed for ume as engraver in the establish ment of the American Bank Note Company. He is one of the best en gravers in the country, and received at that time a salary of $6,000 per annum for his work for the company. He states that he then was living an easy life, boarding at Taylor's, Broad way, New York, and enjoyed himself very much. He became acquainted there with a very pleasant gentleman, who. after securing his eood will, en gaged Ulrich to do odd little jobs of engraving, inis proceeded until Ul rich discovered that these odd little designs made parts of bank notes, and was told that he was engaged in coun terfeiting. He was threatened with exposure unless he acceded to the de mands or his "friends." He then learned that he was the dupe of a large gang of counterfeiters, who were carrying on high-handed work, and wuu were aooui io enter largely into the business of counterfeiting green backs, &c He was finally induced to enter their plans, and found that he was kept almost a prisoner. He did a great deai,of the most skillful work.and was concerned in the plate for which the Government offered a reward of 40,000. b inaily he was arrested, con victed and sentenced to a term of 12 years in the Ohio Penitentiary. Linen is a man or rare ability, or pieasant aaaress, ana it is said has that indefinable sort of personal mag netism that enables men to exert so strong an influence over other men. He had not been long in prison before he commenced operations to secure his release. He managed to enlist two guards in his favor and corre spondence was commenced with out side friends to bring a heavy pressure iur ma paruon. money was to be freely used and all sorts of explana tions were to be made. The corre spondence was intercepted, the plan discovered ana me guards discharged. Ulrich was placed on rough dutv. so that he could have no chance to play his old game, and yet, by some means, he secured an influence over the foreman in one of the shops and planned the escape of the convict Ilowe, who was rolled out of prison in a barrel or hogshead. This plan did not meet his anticipations, but he re fused to expose any one connected with it. His last effort was made on Satur day morning, and resulted, through the action of one of the parties concern ed and the promptness of Captain Cunningham, in a complete failure. Ulrica retained yesterday his urbanity, and was disposed not to cry over spilled milk. Counterfeiters would have been willing to have paid almost any amount lor his release, and as has been intimated, it is sup posed that more than $5,000 was con cerned and that several persons were "sold" in the transaction. -The case, as it stands, possesses ex traordinary interest, not only on ac count of the notoriety of Ulrich, but because of the unusual circumstances attending the preparation for escape and the unusual features of the con cluding act or the drama. The Zane8ville Courier says : " Dur ing, one of the hot days, recently, when the thermometer was up in the eighties, a party of gentlemen were standing near the door of one of our business houses where a thermometer was suspended. One of the party, unperceived by the others, applied a lighted cigar to the bulb of the ther mometer, and in a short time it indi cated one hundred and fifteen. He then changed the conversation to the intense heat of the weather, giving it as his opinion that a number of deaths from the heat would not surprise him in the least. The others dissented to this, and thought it was not so very hot. He then called their attention to the thermometer, then indicat ing one hundred and fifteen degrees, when every man in the crowd began to complain of the excessive heat, and commenced unbuttoning vests, etc.. to allow a free current of air.

THE NEW PENSION LAW. - Among the most important acts passed by Congress at the late session was that providing for the payment of pensions quarterly to pensioners, ana for the regulation of fees to be paid to claim agents for the prosecu tion of claims for pension and bounty land. Said act became a law July 8, ' 1870, and prescribes in substance as follows : (Section 1. Pension agents shall pre pare and submit within fifteen days preceding the 4th of March, June, September and December in each year, vouchers for the quarterly pay ment to pensioners direct, who, on or after said 4th day named, may exe cute and return the said vouchers and none other to the said pension agents. Sec. 2. Upon the receipt of such vouchers properly executed, and the establishment of the identity of the person entitled to the pension, the pension agent shall immediately for ward by mail to the said pensioner direct, and to no other person, a check payable to the order of said pen- ' sioner, except where the pensioner is required to appear personally and receive the pension. Sec. 3. No pension shall, under any circumstances, be paid to any but the pensioner entitled thereto, except in case or, persons legally disabled, when payments may be made to guardi ans, and in cases of persons resident abroad, when payment may be made as provided in the previous acts. Sec. 4. Pension agents shall receive for all services rendered to pension ers, including postage, thirty cents, payable by the United States, and not more shall be received by them under penalty of five hundred dollars. Sec. 5. The Secretary of the Inte rior shall provide blank vouchers to ' be used as above stated, and regula tions therefor. Sec. 6. Pension agents and their authorized clerks shall take and cer tify affidavits of all pensioners who may appear before them for that pur pose, and give the check for the pen sion to the pensioner personally, and for taking any such affidavit falsely and corruptly the affiant shall be deemed guilty of perjury, the penalty of which shall be imprisonment for five years or less and a fine not exceed ing one thousand dollars. Sec 7. The fee . of an agent or attorney for the prosecution of a claim or bounty land shall not exceed twenty-five dollars. The agent or attorney must file (without cost to the claimant) with the Commissioner of Pensions duplicate articles of agree ment duly attested setting forth the fee agreed upon. When no such agreement is filed or approved by the Commissioner the fee shall be ten dollars and no more. Sec. 8. For contract for demand, or receipt or retention of any compensa tion greater than stated, the penalty shall be a fine of five hundred dollars or less, or imprisonment for five years or less, or both. Sec. 9. The Commissioner of Pen sion shall forward to the pension agents, with' the certificates of pen- " sion, one of the articles of agreement, if approved by him, and directions as to the payment of fees. Sec. 10. The pension agents shall deduct from the amount of pension due the amount of fee, if any, and forward the same (less thirty cents) as directed by the Commissioner.
