SIR WILLIAM ARMSTRONG.
A Well-known English sclcntillo
mnn, in nil udtliess before one of the
learned societies of London leecnlly
called attention to the continued
growth of the Hiitish population,
and stnitlcd his audience and the
whole country by declining Unit if
tho incicnsi' was niantaincdfor ninny
decades to come, legislation to limit
it would be found absolutely neces
sary. England and "Wales, with its
area not much greater than that of
Illinois, have a population ncaily
.nine times as gieat 2G,0U0,U()0.
This is an enormous number to
crowd into n country of 58,000
' square miles. ' But the people aie
permitted to spread over the whole
country. Fiom about 12,000 sqitaie
miles, more than onc-lifth oi the
whole, they aie so completely shut
out as from Paiadise. This onc-lifth
consists of the "demesnes" and
sheep-walks . of the fudal owneis,
royal paiksnnd foiests, giouscmoois,
and gtune picscrves. Lnigc sti etches
of country in the southwestern and
nothcrn poitious of Ehghmd, among
the Welsh mountains, and in the lake
regions arc kept in a slate of aitiii
eial unproductiveness, so to speak,
so that the feudal owneis may enjoy
themselves shooting the game -hich
there find covert, or contemplating
. tho picliucsqueness. Even in the
districts under cultivation the ten
dency is towauls consolidation of
farms, reducing the number of
dwellings, and of course, the number
of inhabitants. It is easier for land
lords to collect rents from a dozen
large farms than from 100 small
ones. The result is, that the people
are driven to the towns and mining
.districts, where they are crowded,
and thousands of them fester and
die from the lack of light and air.
And Sir William Armstrong and the
statistical theorists of the aristocra
cy" cry out that the law must be
passed to check the natural incicase
of the people and philanthropists and
colonists demand assisted emigration
to Australia and Canada. The peo
ple themselves are beginning to think
about these matters. Oylc County
A FATAL AFFRAY.
New Ohleams, December 12 A
dispatch from Gieenvillc, Miss.,
gives the following particulars of the
trouble there on the lOtli inst. : Con
siderable excitement has picvailcd
for a month on account of the mu
nicipal elections. J. A. Lealaudcr
and Shaw headed the two tickets for
the Mayoialty. On Saturday the
saloons were made the lendczvous of
the followers of the candidates.
Money was spent liberally and the
passions of the men were in ouscd to
fever heat in dlink. In the evening
the Shaw faction held a final meeting
at Doc Jones' dance house. In the
midst of the proceedings a melee
occurred between a colored man and
Frank Montogmery, u white man.
Pistols were drawn and shooting com
menced. Sam Frank (white) was
seriously injured and three negroes
were shot. One of them, named
Hamer, was killed outright, one is
expected to die and the other was
slightly wounded. The shooting
created the bitterest feeling and
during the entire night and yesterday
morning there were apprehensions of
more trouble. The Coroner's jury
found that Ilames was killed by
Montgomery and Finlay. The oc
currence had the effect of bringing
all to a comprehension, of the danger
ous state of affairs engendeied.
Finally tho best citizens ,camc to
gether and a compromise was effec
ted, both candidates withdrawing in
favor of Major Rucks. This action
has given satisfaction and peace and
ouler have been restoaed. 8. I'1.
