Office of State Kssayob. \ Portland, Me., March 5, l$Wi7. ) This is to certify that i have this day tested a bunt ing fluid or oil, with reference to its liability to ex plosion. The oil was introduced into a test tube, the tube partly immersed in water and heat was applied. The water was raised to the boiling point, and the heat was continued until the tein|>erature of the oil in the tube was 207 deg. Fahrenheit. Flame was ap plied to the mouth ot the tube, but there was not sufficient evolution of vapor to take tire. From the test I should regard the oil in question ns perfectly safe for household use, when employed with ordinary care. Signed, H. T. CUMMINGS, inar7d&wlm As saver.

Governor Orr, ot South Carolina, is one ot few leading men of the South who, like Gov. 15i6wn of Georgia, seem to comprehend the new situation in which circumstances have placed them. Mr. Orr, it is said, foi lii-., liber al sentiments was recently rudely insulted at a public dinner in Charleston by the Mayor of that city, and resented the insult by leaving the table. A short time since Governor Orr made a speech to a collection of the freedroen ot Charleston, which is significant of the change that has come over the spirit of his dream, and is one of the most emphatic indications of ihe advent of the new era that lias just begun to dawn uiKm the South. He recognized the negro as a man, as a fellow-citizen, whose right it is to he industrious, thrifty, wealthy, educated, aDd to he the controller of the free man's ballot. His speech w as free from dog matism, and unlike the patronizing style in which l'rcsideut Johnson addressed the col ored delegations w hich called upon him at the White House. He speaks to the negro as though he would impress him wilh a sense of the radical and utter change which has come ui>on him and upon the South as well. Old I lung: have passed away; all has liecome new. A new state of society is inaugurated, and the old is annihilated;—a hew industrial system, a new form of education, new codes of legisla tion, all recogniziug and securing supreme and abiding rights to the ncg^xi of life, liberty and property must be instautly provided lor. TherGovcruor reminded the freedmen that very essential modifications of tire; laws have bees made tor their benefit., and the negroes lind that while three years ago they were ex cluded from the Court House they are now permitted to enter it, to give testimony not only where they themselves are concerned, but in all cases that require adjudication in South Carolina. Protection of person and redress of i-erson id injury are also secured to the blacks, and Governor Orr pledges himself to rigidly en force the laws against tiiose who outrage and oppress tiiem. He also aflirms that it is due to the negroes, it is due to truth, to ‘ acknowledge that the great bulk of the colored people in South Car olina, since the extraordinary change, have demeaned themselves with remarkable pio priety.” Because of this, and because they are ini icratively Howled, the negroes are desired to remain in the State. He recognized the Cull freedom of the negro to go where he can do best, though he would have him remain where he is. Said he: I think your interest our interest; the in terest of the laborer and the landowner both require that you should lie here.” Vet “If you get employment elsewhere, if you can go to work where you can be belter rewarded, you should go.” Thrown upon their own resources, without capital and without lauds, the negroes are still reminded by Governor Orr that they are “no worse off than a great many “of the white men"—hundreds of thousands ol whom stand iu the same relative condition. Re minding them tba: it is tile duty and prov ince of all men and women to labor, he com mends the negroes for practical recognition of the fact. They liavo been willing to work,and Where contiacts were made with them, and they were treated with the consideration they were entitled to, there has been no cause of complaint against them. The . schools lor the freedmen challenge Gov. Orr's highest approval, and he suggests Chat the Legislature should provide “a com rnou school system which will embrace the colored as well us the white race.” He will stand hy negro suffrage with an educational quaiiticatiou, suggesting that ability to read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States should lie the only requirement of the negro for the ex ercise of the citizen's highest right. This qual ification would not be offensive provided it were irrespective of color, though it would probably disfranchise a large class of the white voters of the chivalrous Slate. While the features iu Gov. Orr's speech to which we have referred arc indicative of great progress, and show that he has got up- ' on the right track, and may come out right if he follows his own pro(>ositions to their logical conclusions,it is not to be inferred that he is up to the standard of equality which the spirit oi the age and of our insti tutions demand. IIis common school system he would not have quite so common as we mtgbt erroneously imagine. Ue would have separate schools tor the white and colored children, and make the money paid by white and colored taxpayers go for the support of tlic white and colored schools respectively; lie would impress upon his hearers that universal suffrage is a mistake, and advise the blacks that they will find i* much more to their interest “to work, and keep clear of politics and all such subjects.” But even here, Mr. Orr is not iie hind many even of the radical party in the N ortty. The republican legislature of Ohio re gard universal suffrage us a mistake, or they would not refuse to strike the invidious word “white" from their constitution; and we are not obliged to go from the former free States, il we are from New England, to find influen tial republicans who think it nn wise to allow white and colored children to mingle in the same school room. We have hope of such men as Governor Orr, and shall soon expert to see him walking arm-in-arm, not with Massachusetts Gen. Couch into another mon grel Philadelphia convention, conceived and brought into being to stop the wheels of hu man progress ami forward tlic interests of ar istocracy and injustice, but with Gen. Butler, Wendell Phillips or Charles Sumner, in some future convention having for its object the promotion of Equal Rights and exact justice, irrespective of lacc, caste or color. The Michigan Agricultural College. This is the oldest and most notable Insti tution of this kind in the United States It is established in a country almost exclusively agricultural, and where we might most rea sonably look lor its practical results. It has been in operation ten years, and n>arly $800,000 have been expended upon it. In the Rural New Yorker of March 2d. we notice the communication of a corres pondent who reviews an aiticle from a pre vious writer, that, had committed, as he says, important errors in relation to it. We copy the essential facts alii lined 1>y the reviewer: The College hat failed entirely to meet the expectations ol the fanners and mechanics of the State, lot wlmse especial benefit it was founded. This is evident from tire fact that numerous petitions, largely signed by tids class of our population, are being sent to the Legislature, praying that no more appropria t ions to be ntada in aid of said institution. Alter a trial of ten years, and an expendi ture of nearly $3i)0.000. we are compelled to admit that it is a failure, so lar as any prac tical good or valuable experiments are con cerned. Tlte farm was to Is? an “experiment al tarm," yet no valuable experiments have ever boon tried u|ion it. Only eighteen stu dents l ave ever been graduated at the Col lege; and hot few of these have ever become farmers. If tins be so, tbe fact would seem discourag ing. The whole thing yet is experimental; time alone will demonstrate its success or failure. We trust the managers of our Indus trial College at Orono will profit by the errors elsewhere and make it (ullil the correct ex pectation of the agriculturists of Maine. By tbe way, we are very sorry to hear, as we learn by the newspapers, that Prof. Phine has liarnes, who has been elected President of the College, lias expressed a disinclination to accept the appointment. The Kennehec Journal, however, spooks of certain conditions whereby he may withdraw liis objection. It would be a misfortune to the College if it should fad of securing his services; and we hoi>e he may be induced to accept the posi tion assigned him by the Board. Tbaxi, The Naiionnl Hnnlt«. It does not require extraordinary fxrwera of memory to recall instances of failure on tin pan of State banks to meet their obligations, it is not very long since Western bills were generally regarded with suspicion, and We- • emmodes of b:mking received (lie epithet “wild-cat,” which has clung to such danger ous methods ever since. If anybody supposed the National hanking act was an invention to make rascality and dishonesty impossible, it may as well bo routesseU at once that the sup position was a mistake. So long as the affairs of hanks are administered by men thoie will be opportunities lor the exercise of dishonest talents, and these opportunities will occasion ally lie embraced. 'the recent disclosures ot rascality in the management of a few nation al banks, ought not to tinow discredit on tlie system. The system only prolesses ,to secure the public against the results of such frauds, and that securi ,y it affords. It professes also to furnish a sound basis for the business of the country, and this latter profession it is worthwhile briefly to examine. The report of the Comptroller of the Cur rency furnishes the following statement of the rendition of the National banks on the morn ing of Monday, Oct. 1, 186ti: KKSOIIBOSS.

The liabilities of the hanks to the public are,— Notes in circulation (old and new ) #299.*77,583 Private deinmits 563,519,571 Public deposits 33,190,776 Due to oilier hanks 137,4*3.436 In all #1.024.272,386 Against this they have in actual cash,— Specie $s,l70,*36 lawful money, 2u5,77o.64l In all $213,941,477 Here Mien is at tne very beginning, over 20 per cent, of the liabilities in cash. 1 f we com pare this reserve with the specie reserves of the Bank of England or of the Bank ol France we shall bud in the vauits of those institu tions an average amount not far from 35 i>er cent, of their liabilities. It must lie consider ed however that these reserves, and especially that of the Bank ot England, are the banking reserves not of these institutions alone but of the whole country to which each belongs. All the deposits in all the banks of England are secured by the single reserve in Tlireadncedle street. To make the comparison perfectly fair therelore, the reserve ol the Bank ot England should lie measured by the liabilities of all the banks in England. A writer in the London Economist doubts whether the reserve would amount to so much as 5 per ceut. of the sum of these liabilities. In the item of cash then, the National banks are very strong, holding one-fifth of their total liabilities. But there are other re sources which deserve to lie considered. The total resources are,— Cash $213,911,177 Uavernment securities 426,657,350 Uemixtuiees uuU other cash items 1u.i,6i6,’i>4S ft ah $744,275,475 The banks hold therelore In Government securities or cash nearly 73 jier cent, of their liabilities. The best of the English banks hold no such reserve as this—40 per ceut. being re* guided by bankers there as amply suiiicient. The truth is the National banks are doing bus iness very largely ou their own capital. With a capital of 415 millions and a surplus lurid of 53 millions more, their loans and discounts amount to barely tWX) millions. More than three-quarters of the money which-they have loaned is their own. There are no European banks which do so sale a business as this.— In Europe a banker is an agent who un dertakes to invest other people's money; with us he is a uiau who lends his own mouey.and only incidentally other people's. There is not in the world a baukiug system so sound, so well provided with ueedlul reset ves, so nearly reliant upon its own capital, as the National banking system in this country. In 1837 and 1857, the banks kept very small reserves and they went down like rows of bricks. They are not liable to such disasters now. The jieople who have already obseived that years ending ill 7 are latailo mercantile credit, may as well erase 18(57 from their list. We shall see no great liuuneial disaster while the baukiug credit of the country remains as firmly an chored as it is now. By this sound system of bunking the inconveniences of the transition from an inconvertible to a convertible curren cy, though they cannot be escaped, may he greatly mitigated. The lu* and Out* m WuSingltn. A lady correspondent of the New -Vork Evening Pont sketches in the following lively manner some of the aspects of Washington life on the last day ot the Thirty-ninth Con gress: In these last days of the session Washing ton is divided into two large classes, the Ins and the Onts. There are the happy leilows who have come in new coats and shiny faces, to take their seats on the 4th of March—the new members. They wear an important, scit-satistied air, aud are a little solemn, think ing, probably, over their respousihiliiy to the country. They make a part of the Ins. Then there are the members of the present Congress w ho were re-elected. They are jol ly, their clothes are not so good, hut they have a heartier laugh, and less sense of responsibil ity. They must lie counted among the lus. Then there are the office-seekers whose ap pointments the Senate has continued. It has been so tight .a squeeze lor them that they are not yet restored to their normal form; and then most of them wear black, aud look like chief mourners at a big funeral. Wout you let the country know that there is no law re quiring applicants tor office to dress,-when they come to Washington, as though they hail just lost most of their near relatives ;* 1 know a gentleman who recently called on the Presi dent in a tlaroing crimson necktie, and lie as sured me that he was very well received.— To he sure he did not ask tor an office, and that may have made a dillereuee in his favor. Then as to Lite Outs: 11 here are tirst tlio unfortunates who were not re-elected—« ho.- e terms expire on Monday—with whose ser vices the country is about to dispense. » hey look glum—you can tell them as tar as you can see them. 1 know aome who could cry were crying fashionable. They wander about th’s paradise disconsolate, they and their wives; and they cannot be comforted, it is. in fact, rather a nice thing to be a mmberol Congress, or the wile ol a member. The office carries with it besides about half as much as it costs U> live decently in Washing ton, very many little perquisites o| uo money value, hut ol a value lar beyond money which, when you ate accustomed to them, are no doubt difficult to dispeuse with. So that when I look at these mourners 1 don’t won der at their sighs and their sadness. Then there are a number of people whom the Scuate has rejected; they are Outs who never were In; their pangs are not, perhaps, so %>en; hut alter all they may justly sorrow, for they have probably spent half the income they would have derived troni the offices they desired, in trying to get them. They have bored all their friends halt to death: they have worn out their good clothes waiting in ante-rooms and lounging in hotel hails; they have ruined their digestions with badly cooled ' ’ anil they have got to go home now w mean consciousness that they havep • * selves in a worse?' I tor it. for is forable-bodied Americans, In my humble opinion, no man who has got either brains, or practical knowledge ol any kind or bodily strength, can nllord to take of fice under the government unless lie is a man of independent means. On Monday the new Congress meets, and the members are to be sworn in, aud os I heard a little hoy suggest this evening, the old mem bers not re-elected will he sworn out. ^ “ I hey are allowed to swear themselves out, said a by-stauder, by way of correction : and 1 sup pose there may be oaths, “not loud but deep, for disappointed auibitiou is not particular I about phrases.
