the colored labor is deserting rent

opposition to a very naturil and very
neefu1. movement is nnwise and un

A fcfAMTIINM HIM.MNN N I A I I'
Tut New Voik JlulUtin has r.n ar
tide upen the present condition of the
banks, which in of much interest ih
throw ing tight upon the miluio of the
lale improvement in the biisiiiom cf
the lonntry. Last Saturday's New
York bank statement showed another
increase ol $4,318,000 in the average
ol loans. "The amount repoited,"
aayt the BulUtiu, "i35S,888,r00, is
larger by about $7,000,000 than has
ever been reported in any other yen,
and i: occurs at a season, too, when it
it the more significant. This expan
sion of loans has been going on since
last May with scarcely any interrup
tion. The increase in volume has been
22.4 per cent., yet there has been no
corresponding increase of legitimate
business in any aspect. LnU year at
the same time the payments through
the clearing-house were little more
than double the amount of the cash
held, this year they exceed the cash
lie'.d more than four times. In various
wayi the increase in payments
mads ) eprPBHiits something more than
lei'.iniii'e busiuprs. S n'.islics prove
that the volume of prolurts actually
tun in molicu tocoumiuiera was laiger
the last week of lust May than it wai
IhM week, while the payments required
in '.tgitiiiia'.e butinuse, as fur bb can be
nu';.rpd, must have been larger than
ton. Yet the hanks have increased
tiier payments at New York 42.1 per
cent., and thiir kaas 22.4 per cent.
The only solution of this position of
thlnge is nadily found in the enor
mous increase of speculative dealings.
As in;. ay epeculu'ions are safe it does
not follow that the banks are unsound,
or that they hare made loans reck

For a country to prosper as it baa
capacity lo do, and to command that
respect among other nations every
patriot wishes his own country to poa
ear, human life must bs safe. To b
safe it most not only have tba pro
tection of the law, bat also of the
moral sentiment of the community.
"Tkou ahalt do no murder" is a com
mand from the highest authority man
can reverence, and obedience to it ia a
sort of moral thermometer which un
errlnaly records theinflaemw religion!
principle has upon a community.
Where murder is prevalent there ia
either very little religion or what there
ia ic.f a very spurious kind, the
empiy show that says "I go," but
ner enters the vineyard where the
fruit is human goodness. Either from
a decrfHie in tho quality or in the
qiiiny.ty of religion possessed in Mem-
phi, there have been more
idcrs and attempts at murder
I Ih'o than for some years past
Or does the cause lie in a relaxed
administration of the law? Have its
cfllcars, whese I pedal duty it is t3 re-
prfHi crime, fallen back toward tint
rem'Ksness in guarding human life
which wis tt one time a reproach to
Memphis? To repress the frequent
bloodshed the Legislature provided
the Decenary laws, and an upright
and resolute judge so administered
them that an entire change took place,
and the reproach wai removed. The
prevalent caurc ot murder bad been
the cuntom of carrying concealed
wiapons, owing ti wLoh presence
detdi weiedone in hot blood at which
their perpi I rators weio afterward in
many canes horiilied, but no repent
ancs could relieve them from the
stigma of "murder." The change was
made by rrquiring the police, when
ever they arrested a prisoner, or when
ever they discovered in nthtr wayi
that weapons were cotc-aled about
the parson, to rcuke that fact a distinct'
charge. Teat fact proved, our upright
judge ftnve for such a breach of a iaott
impoitant law a corresponding sen
tence. Fine and jail produced
I'loir effect, and would-be murderers
rented to carry the weapons of prepa
ration tor crime about thein, If there
U relaxa'ion upon this point, if the
carrying cf concealf d weapons is once
again becoming a practice in this city,
and if this is a consequence of remiss
ness of duty in oflicial quarters, pub
lic opinion should Dot be apathetic,
but be strongly expressed, lett the
fearful curss we bad with no little
trouble subdued once more raise its
blood-stained face among us. If our
rellgiouH bodies to their prayers for
the salvation of Memphis will add
their wide influence toward repressing
the carrying of concealed murderous
wnaponi, the practica will erase as it
The New York Indicator says that
great activity prevails at the custom
house, and the officials there say they
never were buaier. This is owing to
ihe large amount of imports arriving
at that port. The goods are taken
away as fast as they arrive, especially
the dry goods. In the week ending
March l?;h $2,141,351 of dry Roods
were entored for consumption, against
$1,772,477 in the corresponding week
last year, The increase in dry goods
importations has been going on sinte

crease in the imports of woolen, cot
ton ml nilk. goods has been $3,200,

In tho balance of tra 'e such an in
crease will til', against us, and such a
fact is usually regarded as injurious to
our prosperity. Such is not necessarily
the case, however. In Fugland the
import of cotton is a heavy item

Karcessfnl Test of Edison's Latent
Iarentlon Highly Satisfactory
C'hicago, III., March An exhi
bition of tne practical working of the
Kdiion syetem of telegiapbing be
tween moving trains and a fixed sta
tion wai given to-day on a special
train ran for the purpose by the Chi
cago, Milwaukee and St Pan I Railway
Company from Chicago to Milwaukee
and return, leaving here at 10:30
o'clock this morning. About 200 In
vltfd guests were aboard, comprising
official of all the railroads en
tering Chicago, officers and elect
rcarn of the tdrgraph companies
and numerous representatives of the
pre. Before leaving Chicago, each
paseeoger wrote a telegram, which he
addressed to bimsell and handed to a
collector who passed through the
train, keeping a duplicate for com
parison. The meetages thus picked
op were transmitted by the Morse
system to Wadawortb, a station mid
way between Chicago and Mi waukee,
where the duplicate set of instruments
and condensers had been located.
From there they wre telegraphed by
THl IKOUCTIOH SYSTEM
(0 the operator on the train, which
was movirg at the rate of thirty-five
miles per hour. There was no inter
ruption to the working of tbe system
from tbe time the train left the
Chicago yards until it arrived in Mil
waukee, and the messages delivered
on tbe train were lound to be coirect.
Hie same may lis said of the return
tup. The instruments used appear
none simple, coaintingbf an indue
uon coil, four inches in length and an
inch and a half In diameter, lo one
ettl of whcli is atiixed a
metallic diuvhraom on which is a vi
bratlng armature. Connected with this
is a light key for sending, this being
between the vibrator and tbe battery
Tbe battery used going to Milwaukee
this morning consisted ot twenty-four
cells of Fuller. On the return trip
this wss reduced one-half and worked
quite as well. From the metallic roof
of the car a wire passed down to two

being cup-shaped, and are. fastened
over each ear by straps, and the
vibiations coming into them are read
by the operator. The or Jinary Morse
alphabet ia need, the only difference
being the absence of the" back ttroke,"
which completes tbe letter to the
ordinary telapher. Inthlssyetjm
theJength of the vibration determines
Ore difference between the dot and
ua&h from tbe two receivers. A wire
passes through the car Hoor to ttio
exits of the truck, thus forming
a ground connection and torn
pletlng the circuit from the
wire outside. The battery, it is
claimed, id used only from the key to
the vibrator, the passage from thereto
the oof and the wires beirg accom
panied by the mysterious process
tailed induction. There were four
wires on the poles, which were tt an
average distance of thirty leet from
the track. At tbe etation the Edicou
instrument was connected with all the
wires, to guard against tn interruption
by the parting ol any one. Tho uxs
ot tbe four wires in interchangiag
messages had no effect en

at the regular station, and tbe Ed it on
meu could find no difference between
the use of four and one. They claim
that the only thing liable to trouble
them ia where the telegraph line gets
more than fifty feet away from the
track. This spoils their induction to
a large degree, and if the system were
introduced permanently would have
to be remedied by placing one or more
wires closer lo the track.
In reply to the question propounded
as to how they could overcome tbe in
duction ol several wires w ith heavy
batteries, beside which they were
working on a rmaller wire with less
battery, the manager said that they
had worked under just such circum
stances, and found no diOieulty what
ever. Radical telegraphers and
electricians on the train were very
favorably impressad with the working
of the syttem to far as it is developed.
The manager hopes to be able, in a
few days, to success fully interchange
messages between two moving trains.

from Washington: l ten. Dent, who
is Gen. (i rant s brother-in-law, w hile
speaking upon tho Fit. John Porter
bill, said that ho was at the White
House wlien Porter called and naked
fora second court-martial. "I never
heard a man so positive in his con
victions. He said he had carefully
gone over the brief, nnd was satisfied
that the findings of the court were
correct. lie turned to (ten. Porter,
and, in a tone of surprise, said: 'Gen.
Porter, you should never want to have
this ease reopened. You should never
ask for another trial. There is too
much evidence against it. Why, 1

ranted your conviction and execution.

Gen. PiHler'at once stated that the j
above was an error throughout ; that
ho never saw Gen. Grant at the White

saw Gen. irant during his Presidential

such opinions in his hearing; that on
the contrary he favored the re-opening
of the case by President Johnson, and
would have issued the order for that

ANNOUNCEMENT OF MR. GLAD
STONE'S PLAN POSTPONED.
Differences in Ills Cabinet Likely to
Bs Adjusted General For
Londox, March 19. It iaeUtsdthat
Mr. Qladstone will net be prepared to
present his tcbeme of Irish rt f Jim to
Parliament before the first week of
April. Tbe Cabinet will not meet
strain nntil next week. Many had ex
pected that Mr. J adttone wonld tttte
bis Irish policy next week, betanse at
the opening oi the session he said be
could not present it nntil he was
through in Ihe House with the gov
ernment's financial business, which
be expected to have done by March
2.O. Mr. Gladstone said thit after
noon, in tbe House of Commons, that
he hoped to be able during the com
ing week to name a day for presenting
a statement of his Irish proposals.
Referring lo current rumors about the
natnreof the scheme of Irish reform
which be proposed to submit, Mr.
Gladstone asked the members cf the
House to exercise a prudent re
serve in giving credence to any
cf them. He added thet bia state
ment would probably be followed by
the introduction of a government
t ill to carry his plana into effect, Mr.
Gladstone abo ssked that members
exeicisea whilst one skepticism in
regard to rumors of dissension in the
Cabinet. Borne of tbe lobby frequent
ers tbink this indica'es that the Omar-
enres between the Premier and Mr.
Chamberlain have either been ar
ranged or are in a fair way of being

Tbe sprim: tei in of our Circuit Court
convened here Monday last. Up to
this time only one case has attracted
much attention that of the Prohibi
tionists vs. saloon license, brought up
by appeal from the County Court. It
will t3 remembered by those who
have kept up with my orrespondence
in the Appeal that in December latt a
Detition was Batten up by the temper
ance people of Jonetboro praying the
County Court to refuse license to the
saloon men for 188t; that Judge
Loft's refused to grant the petition;
that licenses were issued, and that the
Prohibitionists appealed. The case
wm nail id in tha roirt Tnesdav morn'
ing r nd consumed all of thatdiy and
Wednesday. B:th sides were repre
sented by able counsel, and
the exaoiinttioa of testimony
was very thorough. After hearing
all the evidence in the case Judge
Cate decided that the petitioners
liked one of baving a majority aud af
firmed the finding of the couit below.
Judge Gate's opinion in the case was
ore of the ablest that has ever been
handed down from the bench in this
circuit. His review of the evidence
was very exhaustive and complete.
The expression is universal that he
has complied with the strict letter of
the law in the case and both sides are
satittied with the decision. Of course
the saloon boys are jubilant and the
tempeiance folks idei that they have
bad a fair hearirg and are contented,
and good faelings prevail once more.
The criminal dojket is very light this
term, and Prostcating-At,orney Ed
ringtjn has not had as good a time
with the boys as usual. The grand
jury is made np of our very beet citi
zens, and they will no doubt prove a
terror to evil-'doers.
Among the visiting attorreys pres
ent I noticed Hon. L. L. Mack and
J. F.. Riddick, of Gainesville; Gen.
Charlei Collin, of Walnut Kidge;
Hon. J. B. Boykin, Eugene Parish and
A. P. Mack, of Paragould.

Miss J. C. De Ve ling, has been here
this week. She lectured at the Bap

not permitted to hear either lecture,
but he is informed that they were both
quite entertaining and instructive on
