RAPID IMPROVEMENT IN THE SOUTH There are signs of rapid improve ment in the South, wbi. h must cheer every philanthropic and patriotic heart. We do not refer so much to material improvement, which has been very great already, botli in agricul ture and manufactures, as to moral improvement in the ideas and man ners heretofore engendered bv slavery. For instance ; 1. Instead of the haughty, dictato rial, self-sufficiency of Southern aris tocracy which treated the Northern people as peddlers and mud -sills, de manded the right t make the whole- Union its hunting ground for slaves, and insisted on extending slavery over the i erritories ; instead of a Toombs boasting that he would cali the roll or his slaves on Bunker Hill and Preston lirooks beating a Massa chusetts Senator nearly to dcalh in thrf Se..ate Chamber of the United States; instead oflthu we see now an extre me sensitiveness with regard to Northern opinion, and an earnest attempt to justify Southern -sins and sUortcoiBings in the North. 2. Again there is a wonderful change in tone toward Northern men who go South. In the olden times they ware watched and menaced like criminals, and if they settled there they liad to be louier in defence of slavery than the slaveholders them selves. Their papers would be stop ped also by every petty postmaster ii thev contaiued anything against slavers'. The change in these respects has been indeed wonderful. Now the whites in almost ver3' part of the South are earnest in their invitations to Northern men to settle among them, an 1 give them most solemn as surhiic. s that they will have as entire liberty of "pinion and freedom of action ii the South as in the Noith Phis change of public opinion is a wonderful gain for the South in every point of view. 3. The recklessness of human life which has painfully distinguished the South in the time of slavery and since, is, if we judge aright, rapidly passing away. The chivalry which shot a man at si;ht on the street, and w:.s with haste cleared of all blame hy a chivalrous judge and jury, is. we hope, a thing of the past. The condemnation of such chivalrous pro ceedings by Northern prpers has cut very deep ; not, because their articles were read generally in the South, but because Southern papers replied with great indignation, not in the way oi justifying the South, but by showing that the North was as bad or worse Tne agitation of this blow has, we hope, given the death blow to chival rous murders and acquittals of mur derers in the South. 4. 'Hie evidently growing disposi tiou to treat the colored population fairly is the best sign of Southern improvement. It is rare now to hear ot lh burning of "nigger" schools and chu. dies; though that, a few 3'ears ago. was their almost certain fate. Instead of this we hear of in creased appropriations for the schools and colleges of the colored popula tion. 5. Shooting the colore I voters, or preventing them from voting by vio lence, or overwhelming their votes by hunches of tissue ballots, are modes of carrvinii elections fast going out of date, as is the exclusion of blacks from equal privileges with whites in street-cars and on railroads. There are, however, still remaining shameful relics of the barbarous treatment of colored people in the long sentences of slavery in chains for stealing mythical chickens ; but our travelling correspondent, who has investigated the whole matter at the police courts, penttentiary, and quarries of Atlanta, says the whites j are very much ashamed of the chain gang. If so, it cannot continue long. We have sent 'ier ycry interesting in vestigations on this subject to every newspaper in Atlanta, and to all the public officials whose address we could obtain, and if they cau stand such a reproach they are farther be hind in humanity and fair dealing than wc think they are. We expect yet to be as proud of the regenerated Southern States as we are of the best Northern States, and we must admit that in some re spects they have been far ahead of us. There is less of socialism, atheism, unitarianism, universalism, spiritual ism, divorce, foeticide, and other noxious vageries and foolish beliefs in tne South, we believe, than iu the North ; and, therefore, Southern Christians and philanthropists have, in these respects, a better held to work on. Only let them educate. educate, educate both whites and blacks, and the South will become a verj' desirable land to live in. N. Y. Weekly Witness. SUCCESS IN TEACHING. Every teacher desires success. It can be had. Will you try. to deserve it? , If so, decide in your own mind what success is, then how to seek it, and lastly work for it Suceess is obtaining the right results.

American Journal of Education THE POWER OF DYNAMITE. Within the past tn years, a new instrument of havoc and destruction has hpp.n added to the asrencv with which men make war upon one anoth er. The murder of the Czar of Rus sia, two years ago; the blowing up few weeks since, of a Governmen building in London ; the seizure o explosive machines in the hands of suspicious characters, and . pian3r other circumstances, have called th startled attention' of the world to the terrible -powder-of dynamite. What is this immensely destructiv substance ? It is a compound, usual! ipade in the forin .of a paste, of nitro glycerine and gun-cotton. ; NirO gly geriue, as the reader may know, is an oilv liuuid of .highly explosive aned dangerous qualities. Gun cotton ii cotton saturated in certain acids which make it aleTa vtry explosive ageut. The two, combined in the form of dynamite, make a substanc which carries death and destruction pent up in a very small compass. The alass bomb of dynamite which not only killed the Czar Alexander, but wounded half a dozen of - his escort, and broke the window oanes of houses several hundred feet away, could be carried easiby concealed in the palm of a man's hand of medium -.ize. No doubt the explosive agent whatever P was which dealt SMch havoc in London, was quite as small and as easily concealed. Theie are many possible forms and combinations' of gun cotton, nitro- lvcerine. and dynamite. Nitrogly erine will not explode by the mere pplication of fire ; on the contrary, lighted, it will burn slowly, and urinlessly. But it will explode 13' a sharp concussion. A dynamite bomb, 00, -u) plied with a small percussion ip, will explone if thrown violently. just as does a toy torpedo. The most common way of explod- ng one of these agents is 10 have hort fuse attached to it. The furthei nd of the fuse is lighted, and-then the operator hastens avay. By the time the fire reaches the destroying agent, the operator is able to get to a safe instance, and to defy deection. I'he explosive power of d-namite or nitro-glycerine is generally stated to be about ten times as great as gun powder of the same bulk. The explo sion pioduces 110 smoke whatever. ut creates a deafening detonation. Dj'namite, and other forms of nitro 4lyce-ine and gun cotton, are taking the place of gun powder in man3' practical directions. They have been substituted for gun-powder, to a large extent, in the operations of mining and of blasting rock ; and this kind f work is much mo.e rapidly done In their means. Such exploaP e a.entH are also being introduced in 10 the operat ions of warfare. Gun-cotton is used iu artillery op crations and iu naval actions, it being found far more effective than gun- owder. as w 11 as more clean in . i;s u-;e. it is also adopted in ttie opera tions of military engineering. Thus we see that the discovery of nitro glycerine, gun cotton and d na- uite, witu their vat ious combinations and tl.e improvements constantly made in them, h.is given to men , a new and most potent material force, which they use both for wicked and beneficent ends. Henceforth, not only will mining. blasting, a . d similar work be done more rapidly wi h less lab r. but w ars will be shoittr because more deslruo tive. But we con not regard the tremen dous destructive power of dynamite and the ease ith which enougltof it to destroy-a palace or a- prison can be carried concealed about the person without oereeivinir what a terrible weapon it supplies to the .crimina and the assassin. Nor can we wonder that the Eng lish' and other governments :tre earn estby considering how the manufac ture and sale of agents so formidable in their action, and indeed in their very'' existence, can be restricted with out limiting their proper and benefi cial use in saving human labor ami making it more effective. yowl's Companion.

The flavor of all his narratives is that of insatiable and joyous adven ture, not vet shadowed by that awful romance of supernatural terror which came in with th Puritans.

When liud-on sai'ed soutli of Cape Cod and enteied the harbor of New York, he was j siified i 1 sa ing thai he entered "in unknown sc.i." I the shore north of Caps Co 1 was not an unknown region, it w is due large ly to Smith. While his -companions were plundering, or kidnapping ie groes, at the time he first visited those shores in 1G14, he was drawing 'a m.-tn from 00 ut to point, isle to f - 1 isle, and harbor to.' harbor, with th soundings, samls, rocks, and land markf ." He first called the region New England, and first gave the names of Charles River, Plymouth, Cape Ann ; wh:L olhe-r names which he bestowed as Boston. Cambridge.
