BTKRBT. ITKLOVF.LT KOTEJUIBB,
Antnmn winds are blowing, the Ko
Tember sky is grey and forbidding, tbe
leaves aie fulling rapidly from the
trees bear their rustle as they are
whirled in tho rouph guet, and nu
morons telegrams toll cf many spots
that are Just having their "first snow."
The ba e trees, the chilly air, the
harsh dampness of the atmosphere.
the aombre licl.t that lingers at the
window, all suggest gloom and sad
nc as, far we have roached the time tbe
poet declares to be "the siddost of the
year." October ami ed sweetly on us,
and the soft sunshine, the balmy
bierse, snd the cherry glow npon the
landscape told how loving summer,
bright and joyous, was leaving ns re
luclantly. nulling and cheery ti the
last. And now November is come,
stern, Latah, nnloving andnnlovely,
and baa turned gentle and genial Oc
tober ont of doors. Now we
must have coal smoke and ashes,
and tbe metalllo smell of
the stove. No sitting cut in the
evening breessand listening to the low
chirps and unceasing hum that are
borne npon the gontle night wind,
while tbe swett, ever busy stars look
down as if saying, how comfortable
earth's mortals look in tbe genial days
and sweet, soft nights. But it is over.
The autumn winds ire blowing, tbe
Rummer leaves are falling, and ill
natured November has come io warn
ns that cold, frecslng winter is ap
proaching, and already the North is
visited by it first snow. So the bright
summer and the gentle fall are gone,
and now we must contrive, and artl
flclalise, and tn.ke be'ieve, enduring
as best we can, and shivering bocanee
we must, aud longing, longing with
lingering wish, tor tho diya when the
bright warm sun will once more
briog brightness, bloom, the tong
of bird, and the light and the
flickering shadows of illumined driys
and gonial evening. But now it is
sour November.
VIIHMU'KU COLOHKD FAIR.
The Vicks'iurg Herald of Monday
announces that next day tie Stato
Colored Fair would be opened at that
city by tbe Governor in peis?n, who
would deliver the opening aildrem.
The Undid awards great credit to the
energy with which the colored people
have got np their fulr, turning the at
tention of their rane in the right di
rection for progress. While North
and 60 nth look with profound into;
est upon these ftire, the Herald ex
presses its opinion that "nothing can
do the white poople of th's Slate
more giod than to co-operate with
the colored people in . such enter
prises," aud it urges the citizens gen
erally to attend. Excursion trains
are expec'od to bring multi
tudes. The Appeal recsntly gave
a resume of the prizes offered,
and for what objects, and those
objects were extremely appropriate
for arousing and sustaining the co
ored man's ambition to excel. An
occasion like the Vicksburg fair Is cil
culated to draw the minds of oar col
ored citizens from unwholesome sub
jects, to advance them la respectabil
ity, and to increase their well being,
AtrineB'uff, Ark., aeimllar fair baa
juat been held. The Pine Bluff press
poks of it with high commendation
and pronounced it a complete iu-c'bj,
In teveral other places colored fairs
have been hold with such catisfactory
results that thoy promise to spread
and become annual celebrations.
IAHOK TROUBLE.
Labor troubles are again causing 1
anxiety. Every no and then the
employers congratulate themselves
tbat the labor troubles are over, but
in vain. The evil of distension bursts
out afresh, and the feeling between
employer and employed grows more
bitter. The fact is, that as matters
go, settling a strife fettles nothing but
jost the immediate details of the oc
casion. No principle is rettled, no
system established. Tbe two pariies
struggle and quarrel and calumniate
each other, and in tbe long run one ot
the two titles gets the advantage In
the contest, bat nothing is done to
prevent or soften down futnr con
tests. It is this unsi tiled way
ot settling, this want ot provision ot
some mode ot arriving at a
peaceable and ratisfactory conc'usion,
that makes labor trouble an inceesant
uuunna-suiBui io irauB RDU a Qttngur
to society. Employers aud em ployed
naturally will take different views of
things at times, and mieunderttand
Mgi will occasional y occur. As
things stand, no preparation is madd
for such contingencies, all i3 at loose
end, and that want of ordsr In ar-
raogement should lead to disorder in
practice, we may naturally expect.
Good senee, good feeling and business
like ayatem alone can take loea and
(heating of danger oat of our labor
troubles.
A WASTED ARTICLE.
Every year the Bermuda grass ap
pears to grow in greater favor in the
8-uth, and there isa peculiarity about
it that indnces ns to ask whether it
may cot have a special value inde
pendent of its large yield and high
fattening properties. In an article in
the Starksville (Miss.) Stork Journal,
descriptive of the nature and qualities
ot Bermuda grass, occurs the follow
ing: "Its tendency to withstand a
large excess of water is one cf its vir
tues in this country. Oa low lands it
Is frequently overflowed with water
for months and is seemingly uninjured
thereby. On low wet lands that are
ot very well ditched, and where the
overflows cover it daring a good
portion of the year here is
where we secure our tremendous
yields of hay." Long ago, somewhere
on the coatit of Scotland, the lapping
of the era waves was washing away
the fribble soil of the place, and
threatened the destruction of a fertile
agricultural district. An observant
resident had remarked that the matled
roots of a weed that grew there so held
tbe soil together that wherever it grew
the waves did it no Injury. The sug
gestion was adopted and the land
saved. The close and matted growth
of the Barmnda grass suggests Its pos-
sible value whero the land is liable to
wash into gnllies. Bat may it not a'so
be fjund a binder at the base and
lower parts ot our levees, so as to save
much of the caving tbat is eo common
a cause of their destruction ? Whether
the Bermuda is adapted for the pur
pose or not, a grass or plant tbat wonld
prove a binder as tbe Scotch weed did,
would be of the utmost value in the
lower Mississippi country. Cannot
such a plant or vine be found?
TUB NATIONAL BASH.
Our national bank system, both in
war and peace, hrs commanded the
confidence of tbe country, and has
contributed greatly to its prosperity
The whole system is now on the way
towards extinction. Whether it is
better the banks shonld die out or be
preserved, it is principally fjr tbe
business portion cf tbe community to
decide. There are theorists about
money and about banks, snd some cf
them are strongly opposed to the na
tion' bank system. It is hardly
likely, however, that theorists will
settle the question now before the
country. Business men, acting on
every day practical experience, are the
jury whose verdict is to settle whether
the national bank sjstem is to remain
or cease. Tbe national banks dope sit
with the government government
bonds as security , and without
them the banks cannot continue
In bus'iuess. Those bonds are ceasing
to be available, and as the law, as it
now stands, requires them to be de
posited, as the bonds difappenr the
banks must ceaaa to ex'at, unless Con'
grpfs provide some substitute for the
bonds, it Con'.rcs8 dceire tlio national
bonk svs'era to be preserved. If it so
desire, it hliotild have taken the necee
ear f t ps before the bonds began to
be unattainable. Now, however, no
lect can exist no longer, for unless
Congrees provide ether ways, the na
tional banks must go. In tbat case
Oonuress must oonnlder what is to
succeed thorn, for the country will
haidly bo SAtiefif d to be cmt upon tho
tender mercies of such a sot of Slate
banks as preyed upon it before the
national banks wcro instituted. The
entire business public is especially in
toiosted in this matter, and before
Conaresi meets It shonld be prepared
to demand eu"h practical effort from
it as will satisfy the country and sus
tain the interests of our commerce.
Ttio liotldeaa Walling for Light
Naw Yokk. November (). The God'
dees of Liberty's torch has not been
lighted sines (Saturday nigtit. Whetn
er it will be lighted agin at all is an
unsolved problem. Tbe American
committee has no funds (or that pur
pose. The plans of lighting the statue
by subscription or through a personal
contract with the engineers, have come
to little or nothing. Gen. Bchofleld
has called the attention ot the War
Department to the lack of any funds
for maintaining a beaoon on Itexllow's
Island, and ot any provision whatever
for the statue. It anv money oan bs

by the War Department the lighting
will probably bs resumed bef r Ions.
If no fands can bs had from Washing

New Obi.hanb, La Nanember 9.
The Timet-Democrat publlehe; an c-
aunt, by an tye-witnee, of tbe ex
ruiion on Ojlober 18'.h of Gen. K.
Delcado, Lieutenant Colonel Indela

and Lieutenant General Loyant, who
were shot at Uomayaga ior lead ng an
expedhion against Honduras, i'be
four officers above named were lodged
in a small prison at Coraayagua when
tbe news t.I their sentence reached
them. Gen. Djlcado a wife was there
1 plead with a wilts tears and
woman's devotion for ber bntband's
ife. It was tbe desire of President
Bjgran to spare Gen. Dalcado's lifd if
possible, aru any pretext would nave
been readily eeized npon to grant bim
an opportunity if saving himself and
at the same tune vindicate the tribu
nal which had condemned bim. Tbe
Preeident sent a meeieng 'r to him to
say, tbat if he would promise to never
again take np arms againnt noiiunras
be should receive a pardon. ioe
soldier was too brave to save
bis life nnon tbfsa terms, ile
sent back word he would eee Hondu

than she now enjoyed before he would
accept his pardon on such a pledge.
When bis ansterwas received mere
was no'htrg leu uut 10 prepare ior
the execution. In the ccuutries south
of this there are few preliminaries to
such, not uncommon events. A
priest, a firing (quad and a coflin
are soon obt lined. On tbe
morning of their execution the
men were token to a point near the
Church of Comayaeua, four enffins
were placed near the wall and the
four condemned men were led to
them. Thev accented their nojitiona
as easily and gracefully as It they were
n tbe boxes at the opera, and not a
face was blanched, not a nerve
quivered. Gen. Delcado asked and
received permission to order the
guard to firs, which he did, first re
questing them not to shoot him
n tbe lace, but in tne Drea.t. mere
was no rattle, no scattering shots, bat
one sharp, stunning report, ihe
four men for half a second remained
in an upright position, as if still un
hurt, and then rolled over, bloody
and dead. The soldiers bad complied
with Gen. Da'cado's reneat, for the
balls had penetrated h:s breast.

Atlanta, Ga., November 9. The
Na'ional Frinon Congress at the
morning seesion dissui-eed the ques
tion oi the moral and religious in
struction of prisoners. JemeaMasRie,
warden cf the Central prism, ot To
ronto, presided and read tbe finst pa
per. He laid great s're-s upon the
character of the warden ando ber offi
cers of the jail as the most elfioieot
factor in the managing cr reforming
of prisoners. The subject was further
diecus-ed by the Rev. F. II. Wines
end the Rev. Dr. Biers of Chicago.
Mr. Tufts of Concord, Ma e., aud
others. At 11:45 o'clock the
Congress .took a recess in
order to be patent at
tbe inauguration of Gov. Gordon. At
the afternoon eeeeion tho Rnv. F. H.
Wines presented tbe report of a epe
cial committee a;pointed a year ao
to consider the auettion cf establish
ing a Federal prise n for violators of
Federal sta.utes. The rtpirt took
strong ground in favor cf Federal
prisons, and approved the bill of Rep
resentative Darwin R. James of New

Wasiiirotos, November 8. The

who bo recently violated the Presi

attention among the politicians, par
ticularly since Mr. Veit has made such

Some of his friends pay he did not

dulged in a brief call I letumed to my
residence end remained there until
evening. I was asked to addresj the
people in connection with other gen
tlemen, tome of them prominent and
well known throughout the State. By
tbeir courtesy more time was accorded
roe th-sn either of the other gentlemen
occupied. It has been tbe custom, I
think, for the past twenty years
in the city of Madison to close
the campaign with a politcal
meeting, eitaer on Saturday or Mon
day evening preceding the election on
Tuesday. I did not suppose there had
been a hnlf-dozn of theee meetings
when I was absent, and did not have
something to say to my friend upon
the political'Bitua'ion. I bad gone
borne to vote, . and was willing to
travel 20CO miles to enjoy tbat
privilege and attest my sincerity to
an bonett and fair administration of
public affairs. In the course of mv
remarks I spoke specifically upon the
r resident's order lBtued to Federal of
ficeholders regarding participation in
political conventions. I pointed out
the evils which had grown np during
tne iiietime 01 tbe Keoublican
party, when party nominations were
controlled by the officeholding
element. I unoualifiedlv declared
my cordial approval cf the President's
course and nolicv in resDect to the of
ficious dictation and .intermeddling
01 omrecoiders in directing comina
irons ana manipulating conven
tions, and the declaration re
ceived an outnnrst of ap
plause indicative of the mcst hearty
approval of thewise'a d judicious
polico ot tbe Piesldent. I was among
ray iriencs and 1 lo.ked noon it as
duty to addreis them when they bad
neen xind enrngti to exte id to me an
invitation. There ia a wide difference
between addreeamg an andienca at
home in a single pputch and abandon
ing the duties of an cilice for a long
peiiod of Ciimpaignii g. There must
be a ili'tinctien allowed between ofli

XUE PIIELPS-RICE AFFAIR
As It PreaenU Ileelt to Henry Wat-
teraon.
Nxw York. November 7. Under
the head of "Wa'er.sonon His Friend
Bayard's Fiieiid," the Tribune today
prints tbe following in iu editorial
columns: "In a private iett-r to a
friend in this city, marked 'not confi
dential,' Henry Watte eon, writing
from the Fremh capital, say-i: 'Alt
Paris is laughing at poor Mr. Pf.elps'a
latest exploit in Lond m. Ic seems in
conceivable, but it i?. As usual, how
ever, Mr. Bayard, in whose pretended
lavor tbis uogus bill 01 dipltmany has
been drawn, will be required by the
public and thepresa to pay it ia full,
ptiucipal, diccnuut and exchange, and
at very high rates, too. Mr. Bayard's
offense cot s's's in having made en
ideal in Mr. Phelps, who is not that
kind of thing at all, but a shoppy lit
tle Yankee attorney, intoxicated with
his new made greatness, and quite
dizzy over an eminence for wbich
he web wholly unprepared. I
wrote the Secretary of State to
this effect last summer from Switzer
land, though I doubt whether he
thanked me for my candor. No man
knows Mr. Biycrd better tl au I do, or
has a stronger respect and regard for
him thin I htve. I voted for bim at
Cincinnati after Hancrck was nomi
nated, and at Chicago after Cleveland
was nominated. I have followed him
in many hard place;. But Mr. Phelps
is too much for my loyalty, and I
must desert bim there. Oi the many
begtatson horse bee k this administra
tion has mounted,in its purp sa 10 re
tire the politicians for knowing some
thing, and t reard the unrcogairsd
for doing nothing, tbe Minis er of
England, after the Secretary of Wur,
is the most conspicuous, ai.d mark
the prediction, tbat such excess of
zeal can end ouly in treachery. One
shudders to think what would became
of Mr. Phelps if a quarrel Bhould
spring np between Mr. Bavard and
Mr. Edmunds, aud Mr. Edmonds
should happen to visit London."
Til a NEW BEAL
Will Hate a Tie In the Senate.
Washington, November 8 The
Star figures out a probable tie in tbe
Senate after the 3d of next March. It
says:Ontne3d of next March the terms
of sixteen Republicans and nine Dem
ocratic Senators will expire. Of the
sixteen Kepub ieaus who will retire
twelva will certainly be succeeded by
men 01 tbe same party. Messrs.
Sherman, Aldrich aud Edmunds
have been reelected, and the
Legislature) of Maine, Connec
ticur, MafsachuBettfl, Michfg.tn,
Minuero'a, Nebraska, New York,
Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are Re
publican. Tho Drmoorats loss one of

R d ileb'.'rer would hold the
balance of power. In connection
with this probable situation it
is a fact worth mentioning
that both Van Wyc and Riddleberger
have given evidences of a kindly feel
ing for tha edmirjis ration. In tbe
event of any conflict betweea the Ex
ecutive and the Senate the two votes
from Nebraska and Virginia would
determine the issue. Van Wyck and
Riddleberger would have it iu tbeir
power by co-operating with ths Demo
crats to organiz the Senate ; or should
Van Wyck vote with the Republicans
and Riddleberger with the Democrats
on the question of organization there
would be a tie. and thera is no Vice
President to throw the HeHdine vote.
