My Dear Sir : Your admirable let
ter to the people of South Carolina is
the subject of universal commenda
tion here. In fact, the prudence, for
bearance, and self-control of its people
under the most exasperating provoca
tions is beyond all praise. I can only
trust that the exciting situation in
which you will find yourself next
week no outbreak will occur. It Í3 al
most too much to expect that there
will be no indiscreet man in South Car
olina who may provoke collision, but
nevertheless the providence of God
has so far guided you and your people
in all your difficulties that your friends
rest in calm confidence upon the wis
dom and good fortune which have so
far attended your actions. You may
rest assured your Northern brethren
have consecrated themselves to the
work of your deliverance, and will not
cease their efforts until you are re
stored to that freedom wherewith you
were free by labors and sanctities and
wisdom of our forefathers. God give
you and your people all wisdom and
all the patience needed in this hour of
trial, and in this crisis of destiny of
our common country. We have full
fftith in the justice of the people of
the United Stater, and we do not en
tertain a doubt of the final verdict
which they will pass upon the concur
rences of the last two weeks. This
verdict will surely vindicate their
majesty and re-establish free govern
ment upon a lasting basis. I have the
honor to be, very respectfully, your

How T hey M ake P ins .—The pin
machine approaches as near to the
dexterity of the human hand as any
machine ever invented. It is about
the size of a sewing machine, and its
working is thus described : A snap
pish, voracious little dwarf of a ma
chine pulls in the wire, bites it off by
inches incessantly, one hundred and
forty bites a minute, and just as it
seizes each bite, a saucy little hammer,
with a concave face, hits the end of
the wire three taps and “upsets” it to
a head, while he grips it in a counter
sunk hole between his teeth, and lays
it in a groove, where levers and
springs, playing like lightning, point
the pins, and whence they are dropped
into a box. The pins ar« then pol
ished, and two very intelligent ma
chines reject every crooked pin. An
other automaton assorts half a dozen
lengths, aDd a perfect genius of a ma
chine hangs the pins by the heads, and
transfers them to slips of paper, and
by one movement sticks them all
through two corrugated ridges in the
paper, when the work is finished.
T he Consolidated Virginia Mine is
the most profitable in the world. Dur
ing 1875 it yielded 169,307 tons ol
ore worth $98 per ton, average, the to
tal yield in bullion being $16,731,-
653.43. Since December 13th, last,
about 600 tons of ore have been hoisted
daily. As soon, however, as the con
nections with another shaft are com
plete, it is computed that this hoisting
capacity will be increased to 2,000 tons
per day, or ore equivalent in value to
$2,000,000. The Superintendent of
the mine says that, even under this
great drain, there is enough ore in
sight to last for many years. The al
most fabulous amount of wealth which
still lies buried, and which the drills of
the miners have not yet exposed, can-
nat be conjectured.

connection with that show, and, in
company with her mother, Madame
Brown, departed for Philadelphia this
morning, Nov. 12th. Miss Mollie will
remain idle for a brief period only, as
she is unquestionably one of the great

V accination . —Dr. Hlngston, may
or of Montreal, recently delivered a
very able address on small-pox and
vaccination. He showed that vaccin
ation does afford a certain degree of
protection from small-pox. From 1750
to 1800, when there was no vaccination,
the average deaths from small-pox
amounted to about 10 per cent, of the
whole. In the bhalf century succeed
ing vaccination the deaths from the
same cause had sunk to 39 per cent.
Coming to particulars, the proof is still
more conclusive. During the first ten
years of the century the deaths from
small-pox in England were64in every
thousand ; in the second decade, 42 ;
in the third, 33 ; in the fourth, 23,
and in the fifth, 16. The Doctor is of
opinion that in any case for ten or
twelve years after vaccination there is
absolute protection, but if the vaccina
tion ha3 been done thoroughly that
protection will continue for a much
longer period. Thereafter one re-vac
cination is held to be enough to secure
absolute and permanent protection for
the rest of life. Some have urged
that there is a risk through vaccination
of inocculating the system with scrof
ula or other hereditary diseases. This
idea has, however, been so thoroughly
exploded that Dr. Hingston says it
scarcely deserves to be treated se

S enator - eleut Grover, of Oregon,
tells the following good and decidedly
Democratic story. In.illustration of
how the government was administered
he told an incident thatoccurred in Port
land on the 4th of July. Mr. Bewley,
of Salem, had been invited to read the
Declaration of Independence, and be
ing somewhat of an elocutionist and
very proud of the honor done him, he
committed the Declaration to memory
and delivered it in fine style, particu
larly emphasizing that part wherein
the grievances are related that “the
present King of Great Britain” has
“created a multitude of new offices,”
etc. After the exereises were over an
old gentleman from Polk county
wanted an introduction to the man
who made the first speech. “Oh, that
was Nesmith, said the one to whom
he applied.” “But,” said he, “it
wasn’t Nesmith ; I know Nez; I live
up in Polk. It was that young man.
He made the best Democratic speech
I ever heard.” He was somewhat
surprised to learn that the “Democratic
speech” was one made by the colonists
of America over a hundred years ago.
