great contention among the thirty or
more candidates for the nomination,

only one on whom the friends of fhe

his riddle high stning and his green

"Bob" an the winning man.
Oi BspecIal correspondent in attend
ance upon tho Interstate Convention
at Jackson, Tenn., thinks that Gen.
Alex. Campbell has the inside track
as a candidate for Congress in- the
Kishth District. He is opposed by
Col. Taylor, the present member, and
by Col. Knloe, both men of ability and
character. That he will have a close
race, thns antagonized, goes without
saying, and if he is defeated he will
have the satisfaction of being so by one
of two of the best men in the .State.
, Gen. Campbell is a man of tho most
winning qualities, a very magnetic
speaker, an excellent lawyer, and
quite worthy of any honor t he people
can confer npon him. He was Be
loved in the army, and enjoys the es
teem and respect of all his neighbors.

in a very bad spirit. What ho has to
say of Horatio Seymour and the vote

worse than that is his quotation from

One of our two specials from Jack
son today gives a very interesting
view of. the political field in Madison
county, one of the richest in West
Tennessee, one of the oldest in point
of settlement and most influential in
regard to population. From it we
learn that Howoll E. Jackson is every
body's candidate for re-election to the
Senate, and that in his old home,
where he ie as well known as he is
here in Memphis, he is beloved for
his noble traits of character, his great
abilities and his honorable ambition.
The Madisonians regard him as the
greatest man in Tennessee and the
coming man of the South, rich in the
promise of things hoped for, based on a
solid foundation of merit and learning.
That he is to be re-elected to the place
he honors i"1 the Federal Senate seems
now to be foregone conclusion, and
we should not be surprised if he was
honored by the unanimous vote of

Jackson, Tkn., February 24. The
Jackson brass band and a big crowd
of visitors made the public square a
lively scene this morning long before
the hour for assembling the Interstate
Agricultural and Industrial Conven
tion. At 8 o'clock an excursion train
from the North brought in about 300
people and the regular train tmrty
of twenty influential planters. While
the number of visitors is not so large
as anticipated, it is very creditable as
to numbers mil thoroughly represent

was called to order by Assistant-Commissioner
Girtes, who was followed by
Mai. A. J. Mi Whirter in an address of
welcome as tdlows:

salubrious. The products of tlie

The convention was called together
at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, when re
grets were read from Gov. Bate and
Mai. E. A. Burke of New Orloiin.
An address by the Hon. J. II. I'irM
of Mississippi was warmly applauded.
He urged upon the farmers the ne
cessity lor getting rid of their preju
dices ana old togy ideas ana of keep
ing up with the progress of tlie ago ;
to educate their sons and daughters,
adorn their homes, and, instead of
following year after year the ideas of
their fathers, to think for themselves
and strive to learn something from
tho liest writings of experienced men
upon special topics connected with
their avocation ; to devote some time
to the study of political economy and
statistics, and to put into the councils
of the country some of their own
wisdom, depending not entirely on
lawyers and politicians to determine
those great questions which affect the
farmers of a country.
A discussion on grasses, which fol
lowed, was ably opened by J. P.
Steele of Iowa, who was thoroughly at
case and evidently in love with his
i The Hon. Cljnton Babbitt, secretary
of the Wisconsin Agricultural Society,
before entering upon the discussion of
grasses, said he had come to Jackson
leaving all prejudices behind, and de
termined to learn, if possible, rather
than to criticise the people of the
South. lie thought the interest of
one section was the interest of all, ami
that nothing was so much calculated
to wipe out sectional feeling as meet
ings such as the present. lie advised
the farmers of the South who would
le happy in their old age to cover the
old gullies wit h grasses. Ho thought
it a sliame1 that so lovely a country as
this should look so barren when it
might be clothed in all the loveliness
of verdant nature.
A. P. Farnlcy's paper on grasses
was a very valuable one, and was lis
tened to with the closest attention.
He declared that there was not a hill
side so rugged, no field so barren,
that there waa not some variety of
grass adapted to it, and that instead of
spending millions for fertilizers, the
South could enrich her lands and
raise thousands of head of sheep and
cattle every year without extra ex
pense. 1 Cyrus H. Lakin, a thoroughly prac
tical and sensible farmer read a short
paper on grasses which Was followed
by a general discussion.
The convention then adjourned un
til aft supper.
THE SESSION TO-NIOHT
was opened with an address on immi
gration by Col. M. B. Hilliard of Lou
isiana, who handled his subject in a
masterly but informal wayr which
captured the convention. He spoke
in the most glowing terms of the cli
mate and soil of the South, stating,
among other things, that several years
ago he sowed bluegrass seed from a
car window for 200 miles on the Mo
bile and Ohio road, and that it was
growing beautifully. ' lie estimated
the early fruit and vegetable trade of
the South at $20,000,000 annually. It

All of tho details of the scheme where

were recited in the presence of
a packed court-room. The wife of

The American Ruraltlime has received
crop reports from over 5000 corres
pondents, and reviewing the situation,
says : Owing to strong foreign compe
tition and tho decrease of exports,
farmers who have been growing spring
wheat largely ought to consider very
carefully the amount of wheat they

is uncertain, alternate freezing,

likely to injure the crop.
The Tacific coast reports are
favorable. The winter wheat crop
coming out from under its blanket

The Kiiniu sentiment 1 find echoed
everywhere. There isauem-nd fool
ing, probably tbe re-udt of the narrow
escape from a humiliating defeat two
years ago, that the Demicracv of tho
State and of every ort of the State
needs to he rejuvenated-tliat it must
take a little of the good, w holcsonie

maintain its supremacy. The most

gressional race in this District will be
very interesting. The candidates are
Congressman Taylor, the present in
cumbent, B. A. Knloa f the Tribune and
Sun, Gen. Campbell and Ken Cole. It
does not appear to le walk-over for
anybody. Gen. Campbell was former
ly a law partner of Senator Howell E.
Jackson, and did an immense practice.
He has always carried thiscnunty, but
it remains to he tented wliether he is
as strong now as he was four wars ago.
He is said to be wonderfully mag
netic stump speaker, and there is no
knowing what he may do when he
gets strung out in earnest.
A great deal of interest is tuken here
iu the election for Jink. of the Su

considerable magnitude seems to have
been worked tip. Judge Caldwell is

Howell E. Jackson is regarded here
as not only the strongest man in the
State, bnt as tho coming man in the
South, Enthusiast ie tributes to him
as a gentleman, a maij of the most
exalted sense of honor are offered up
everywhere. The sentnient so far as
he is concerned is one I of pure and
unmixed admiration. J The crop of
candidates for Govermr is consider
ably discussed. Bob Tjivlor has hun
dreds of friends berr, as he has all
over the Stato, and if iimiinated there
can be no doubt that he would be
elected by a rousing majority. But,
in the first place, it il hy no means
certain that he will k a candidate,
and it is even more uncertain that
East Tennessee would inite on him if
ho were a seeker after tae nomination.
Certain difliculties are said to be in
the way, though what thev aro no
body appears to know exactly. That
East Tennessee will be permitted to

conclusion. It remains to lie seen
whether she will namo one of her

straight, with snowy hair and beard,
a ruddv face, whose every feature was
full of character and whose eyes
beamed with good humor, as the
"next Governor of Tennessee" Gen.
Dibbrell of Sparta. That ho will go
before tho convention I was convinced
after a few moments' conversation
with him. He served his district, the
Third, in the national House of Rep
resentatives from 1872 to 1K84, when
he voluntarily withdrew in favor of J.
R. McNeal, who succeeded him. He
has always carried a big Republican
vote, and before a convention of his
own party is invincible. (Sen. Dib
brell's residence is peculiarly favor
able to him. Sparta is just over the
lino in Middle Tenm'ssee, and the
Third Congressional District takes in
a doien counties of t!ie Eastern Di
vision, all of which he cun carry
without the slightest difficulty. Fail

and should he become the nominee or
the Democratic party, it will have
nothing to be ashamed of. He is
broad and logical in his views, con
servative, and has no mistakes to
answer for. Gen. Dil brcll is not a
story teller, but knows how to make a
stump speech, nevertheless, and never
fails to impress an audience. But all
this is from an East Tennessee stand
point, and is not to be taken as an ad
mission that "Onr Bob" will not
sweep the State like a cyclone in No

not mailer wliether Dempsey beats
McCoy to-night or not, he will fight
the 'Marine' anywov."
The early part of the evening was
taken up with short three-round bouts
ltetwcen light weights and with wrest
ling. Jt was 10:ftO o'clock when Mc
Coy jumped over tho roes. He was
accompanied by Dan Gill of Boston
nd Tom Evans. Dempsey followed
immediately, and was assisted by (ins
Tuthill and Tom Cleary. W. E. Hard
ing was chosen time-keeper and
Mike Cleary referee. In the first
round DcmHcy mode no attempt to
fight, but he made three points to Mc
Coy's one. In the second round Mc
Coy got in omo good work, but in tho
third, fourth and fifth rounds Icin
sey fairly made sport of him, and had
him winded. In the sixth and last
round McCoy fought for all he was
worth, but was unable to stop Demp
sey's body blows and npper cuts, and
McCoy's friends felt relieved wheu
the referee called time. 1 Blanche
sat all the time in the reporters' gal
lery surrounded by friends, who
offered to wager $1000 to fftOO that the
fight would be declared a draw. The
referee, however, declared that the
fight luul lieen won by Dcmpney. The
receipts, which went to the winner,
amounted to over 10000.

The industrial situation in the New
England and Middle States is stronger
than six day ago. As many as 10,000
men that were idle a week ago are
either employed or are iustmctcd to
reort on Monday. WageM generally
have liean advanced from 6 to 10 per
cent. Meanwhile orders have lieon
crowding iu from traveling agent
from distributing centers, and from
buyers generally, and Ihe indications
Hiint to a more active March than a
year ago. All kinds of building ma
terial will be tixitractod for next
month tj alniut last year's prices.
No further advance m hkely to take
place in iron, steel or lumlicr, a faet
which is-regarded with much favor by
builders, projectors, investors and
others. It was apprehended a short
time ago that between the advanced
cost of material and the higher price
of labor, together w ith a movement
for an eight or nine hour day, would
work to the disadvantage of the build
ing interests and to tho spirit of en
terprise generally. But thus far no
uulavorablo results have been realiied.
and the spirit of confidence exists in
id I directions. Manufacturers gener
ally are well employed. The Anthra
cite Cool Combination anticipates a
settlement iu a few days. The bi
tuminous interests anticipate au in
crease of 15 per cent, in consumption,
with an improvement in price.
The manufacturers of ooIn and of
sHH'inl niachinerv during the post
week have booked a great, many or
ders, and the manufacturers of electric
lighting machinery report qulto an
enlargement in the demand for elec
tric light appliances. Tlie manufact
urers of small machinery lor railroad
shos, tnachine-shoiis and small manu
facturing establishments are meeting
with a kmmI deal of bAsiness.
The demand for finished iron and
steel has improved during tho past
week, and store-keepers and mill own
ers are filling increased orders at tl Oft
to tl 85 for merchant, bur t t2 40 to
t2 ISO for nails: 100 for plate iron;
3ft to 50 cents tor sheet. Iurgo orders
for steel rails have been placed at
:14 50, ami buyers in need oi supplies
before July are hurrying iu orders, as
the production agreed upon is nearly
absorbed. A further increase will be
agreed upon within thlrtr days. In
quiries from tho interior lor old rails
have fallen off. Ijirge supplies, are
expected from abroad.
The holders of wool hnve lens Confi
dence in the permanency of high
prices, lirge supplies will shortly be
due from abrond, and manufacturers
are finding thut they can scciiro wed

The demand for laltor in the West

good many thousand workingmen
from the overcrowded Eastern ccu
