It Is nearly ten months before the

been inaugurated. It requires uo Chris

thing in the shape of arms, hands,

to commence a discussion of this sub-

with the next

Kmxjnoa. the usununsr governor of
Louisiana, has another financial specu
latlon on luvnd. He proposes that the
legislature shall scale the bonded debt
of the fcitate'forty per cent, and then Is
sue seven percent bonds for the remain'
ltr. HefisSyay'thia Is the only way the
intension the amount can be paid
without making taxation tteml-conHsca-tlon."
It la well known that a large
proportion of the debt of Louisiana is
notjustjand the governor taking that
for graritea, has hit upon this plan as a
tleflnlwaolution of the financial difll
culties of his unfortunate State. The
New Orleans Picayune, treating of It,
says: "There it, ol course, much
opposition to it by bondholders
and by dealers Jn public se
curities. These gentlemen pre
dict that the proposition will not be
accented by the holders of bonds: that
the newVxrasolidated bonds, reduced to
sixty per cent of the old bonds, will be
regarded with do more favor ttwn the
old ones: that tne taint of repudiation
-will adhere to the State credit, and will
prevent all further hivestmenta la the
State securities; that the want of confi-
denoe and discredit, which are the chief
jiouroea of the preeent emb&rrassnierit of

ths State than there will be. of relief
from the reduction of the burden of debt

these proposes, as a substitute, that the
legislature shall mince the taxes,
and make no provision atpreSent for the
payment of the interest ou its bond
until Its revenues are increased and its
prosperity revived, ami in

Davidson and Shelby county should
promptly punish the officers responsible
for this worse than brutal savageness to
the extent of the law, in -vindication of
the enlightenment and intelligence of
Cqjxinel J. T. Trezevaot, of the.
Augusta BMeli.i, one of the men to
whom Memphis owes an "eternal debt
of gratitude." never loses an opportuni
ty.evennowthatheisacltizen of another
State, of doing us a good turn. In the
last issue of his paper, he says: "We
notice the Mississippi papers are making
giving cards to those papers. The best
anBwer to all such attacks is found in
the fact that, In the last four months of
1S73, Memphis received nearly ten thou
sand more bales of cotton than In the
same months of IS72, though that was a
larger crop than this one. We lived in
Memphis nearly thirty-five,years, know
nearly all her leading merchants, in all
lines of trade; and a more en
terprising, intelligent and liberal
body of men cannot be found in
any other city. The prosperity of Mem-
pms, ana tue country around it, is
mutual. Blot out Memphis, aud every
farmer and retail merchant one hundred
miles around her would feel the blow,

He came to. Texas mlSl, and wasmi
to the time of the breaking put of. the
war, a larg cotton-planter on 3;ed river.
He early became connected with the po
litical history of Texas, aud was regu
larly elected for eight years to the legis
lature, aud the last time he was speaker
of the house. In 1855 he was elected
lieutenant-governor. In 1857 he was
the Democratic candidate for governor,
and was elected by a large majority over
General Sam Houston. His adminis
tration was the most successful one for
Texas ever yet recorded.
Edwin de Leon has done good serv
ice, for the south In 2. recent "article In
the New York Independent, wherein he
gives an encouraging view of the pros
pective recuperation of the south, and in
which he asks: "Has the great indus
trial movement in southern manufactur
ing and mechanical industry escaped
the keen and calculating intellects of
our northern brethren? Po not you. and
they know that already the looms and
spindles of Tennessee, Georgia, .Ala
bama, South Carolina and Louisiana are
supplying the wants of southern popu
lations and rivaling the northern mills?,
That Columbus, and Augusta, and
Montgomery, are becoming great man
ufacturing centers? That Bomc in
Georgia, and Birmingham, io Alabama,
are ctnbryo Plttsburgs for Iron andocaJ,
while Atlanta, Chattanooga, Louisville,
and Richmond are growing up into new
Birmlnghams and Sheflleids?"

will be made at trie coming meeting of
the Mississippi legislature to secure the
passage of a fence and slock law, where'
by all fences that would protect en
closures from cows, horses, etc., would
be lawful fences, thereby making it
necessary for the citizens to pen hogs
goats and sheep. It is to the interest
t all thrifty farmers' that such an act
should pass, and they should exert them
selves to that end.
