GgVEH. While tba nrgroosol SouthCarolira
aro melting homes in ArVarsar, those
of. the uplands of Mirsisilppi seek
' their Mice io the Yaijo Delta. The
richest cotton soil ia the world is
there, covered by forests a'most Im
penetrable, for the overflows of the
MifiB!83lril foibiJ icon to reside in
those dense jtnglfs. But there, a
elsewhere, man has conquered natare,
Dd has victoriously commanded to
the Besot difficult es, "Thus far shall
thou go and no further." Extensive
levees bold back the waters, and ti e
locomo'.iva silencas the booting owl
with its strident r.-.ar. The Missis
Bipp! Valley ratlrosd now owns most
ol this rich land and otters it on low
terms to aittlers, and thoro tho negro
in eearch of better; chscces in life is
resorting. Their desertion is a cjuse
of no little, .trouble' to their former
mp'oyera. Froeidant Lie, ot the
Mississippi Agricultural Colleae,
however, has pointed out the mods

to give np entire devotion to the cot
ton crop, for which the Yamo lands
are more fitted; to diversify their
crops; encourage white men to taks
tho plate of the negroes, giving them
opportunity to acquire Rtnull firms and
settle among them.. These people
wonld grow hay, oata and oorn, rains I
stack and cultivate traits. Mieslwlppi
is a favored spot, and with an extended
and industrious population, lellanoe
upon the negro as the sole helper and

calamity for the deserted counties. It

and enterprising people, we are pure

Dr. P. P. 8:m., who for years hts
been a Hadent cf ths system rf im
irisonmcnt and pnniohment for crime,
and fflio ao dihtingnisbed himself a
short tiom ago by his exposure ot
abuses in snrnn prison modes carried
out in Tennee seo, lrcturcd at Chatta
nooga last Thursday upon ".Southern
Prisono" to an appreciating end rp
plauding audience. lie pointed out
that at tho conclusion of the war the
old prison system ot the South was
broken np, while the disrupted condi
tion ot things was aggravate.! by the
bole nopro population, who were for
merly Ifept in order by tlioir masters,
having now to bi dealt with by the
State. AVh'io tho comity was impov
erished by w r the expensis ot
ths prisons became far heavier
tbaa ver b.fo e. Ths tsxpijers
cried cut for ralle', the Ktata was
too po ir to inninUi.t iie cimina'a in
idlonot', they also must labor fo their
own M:iin!onanc!, and tknt labor
inuit b farmed oat t3 ths bent bIJder.
This brought the now common !ea?e
Brstn. Tuo buyers of ths lab t and

monny by convict labor. In doing
this diaclpiiuo w.-.a cl.anetd in char
acter, t nd ti o mental and moral im
provement nf tho cotivlct was lest
s'ght of. The labor of the prlrorer
was do longer for tho eske cf leforma-
tion, bat ot profit. The obligations of
philanthropy were forgotten. Like a
steam ongioo, the ptiaoaer was an in-
strummit to gt work out .cf and to
make money by. The purchaser of
ths labor m'ght bo a good and amiable
man; ids fiult was in therystem that
rodnced the prisoner to a servile and
degrading co dition. The reforma
tion ot the majority of ths prisoners
is to be looked for piuiclpaliy b ac
customing them to labor under clr
camstaacs that will lead them to
live) honestly by labor when their
prison days are over. The lease sjs
tern destroys all tbK Labor is made
baleful, disgusting and degrading to a
man a thing to keep clear of when
ths pris n w ills are passed. To labor
1th the hops ot further advantage, is
one thing; to do ea ass thing to be
made money Ly for somebody's profit,
Is another and so tho prisoner feels
it. Crime is renewed by these men
whoee reformation has been hindered.
notairancaj, and crime expands as
a consequence, s ) that in the first ten

In' other words, 20 per cent, of the
prison population die or escape every
year. Tennessee, I blush to siy it,
presents almost as bad a record. The
aggregate mortality ot the prison
population for 188J and 1881 was but
77 per thousand per annum and es
capao33. This was as a whole; some
tranches ran as h'gh as 115." In
conclntion, Dr. Sims appealed for re
form, fcr reparation of the sub
j Jet end keepeis uf prison
rs from polities, from the
power of monopolies, and from
the debiting, inborn m bargaining
in their labor. The labor of the con

prisoner thoa'd ba made tu under

andcheeiful future may bs secured.

About 200 perrons rat at the hard.
George William Curtis, of New York,
responded to the toast, "The day we

said: 'The Puritan was not a

ho was terrible reformer. Ue was
as hatd as Plymouth rock itself, as nar

his nose it was fceiauxe Iih had bsen '
trained to fight and not to hi rig. Tneie
was never iu history a man so batoj
as the English Puritan, and there are
ttlll peop e who think him a knave and
a hypociite. There is much tbe same
feeling in theLndon clnbs towarl
Mr. Gladst'ne, himself a very good
Puritan. We can efl. rJ to toil the truth

COMMUTED BY MRS. BOX ALAS A
Bronght Before tbe Public Again by
Gov. Hill Granting a May
Albrt,N. Y., December 22. Gov.
Hill today ivned an executive order
pottpoDicir tbe exHcuii ,n of Mre.
ltoxalana Drnse, under seiitrinoe of
eitat'i tor tbe murrier of her hus'oand,
from December i.9 h, the date fixed in
tbe Sentence, till Fdbiua-y 23;h. The
Governor says he does this in order to
give the State Legitl dure an opportu
nity to modify tbe law of oapi al
punishment in i s application, and
adds that as f ur as h i is concerned tne
cae is closed, and tbe woman nonet
Hijff.'r tho peralry ot her crime on tbe
day fixed, uoltwa in the meautim? thy
law shull have been changed. Tl e
Governor says thot it wss a
ccm case of murder and that
he cm find no restoa for
in er'eremo with tne ppnalry, f-xrept
the sex of the c indi-m jed, whic tne
law docs rot Uk3 into aoitount, Ho
pave: "The evidence shows that tbe
killing was moot brn'a1 and atrocious
in its c'lR'acrer. Br'itijr str t'd, the
facts ati-'factorily eetab'tshr-rj are at
follows: Tho faniilv cora.s ed of the
deceased nd Mrj. Druse, tbe daugh
ter Mary, rgod 1!) years; the coo
UeO'ye, -gl 10 vears, snd a nephew
named Fank Gates, aged 14 years
A quatrel htd occurred on the
morning of ihe tonicide be
tweon tho deceased acd the defendant
et the breaktmi table. The deceased
war still at the table, and during the
qusrrel cf words thudfendaut went
into another rocm aud took a load
ed evolver whico v.fls there,
nod Tutting it under tor apron
returned and whispered toi the
bovs to go out ot doors, which thi-y
did, leaving hersolf, the t'aught;r
Mary and the deaewmd iu the room.
Mary then plwed a ropo around !.;er
fa'her's neck, while be was at the table,
and the defendant fired the revolver
once tr twice at hion, wounding him,
and he fell over sideways in'his chair,
while the delmdaot, buing unable t
make the revn'v.sr on nil noun -all.it
to the nephew, Franfe, who came iutdn
ine lousp, tojetn-r with th.s boy
Geo'ge, and gvs the revolver to
'ho nephew,' and, under' a thrust of
killing him, compelled bias to fire it
oil two or thne ftn s. a-d tne de
08td, being hit by th- shots, rolled
of! the (hair upon the Hot, and then
she se'zod an ax and bit her husband
on tbe bead svitti it, and cor-tinued hit
ting him on thenejfc until she chopped
his besd off. She then caused the
lu ad as well as the body to be taken
into the parlor, and during that day
and evening the bo ty was cut up witn
a 1 ax and was burned in tbe stove.
She threatened to kill the bos if they
told wbat hod occurred. Djring tbe
evening Mrs. Dru e and Mary
amused thoms?lvet by playing
checkers in the adjoining looan, where
tbe murder had bean committed, thus
sr owi.jg t he unconcern aod utfer !atk
nf leelirog of the whole fam ly.
Mr'. .Drutxs bad previous y made
threa'g against tbe deceased aod
boasted that ate would be
rid of him toma day. These and other
facts, almost to horrible for descrip
tion, mark the c.aao as a plain one of
de.iberatd and premeditated mu-der.
There saems to t e sctrcsly a mitigat
ing circurartance. The dangh-er,
Mary, aided aud swietad hor mother
in the murder, ar.daf er thsconviclion
of ber mother ebe pleaded guilty ( f
murder in the second degree, which
plea, on account of ber youth, the fsit
that she was probably act ngucder the
influence of her mother, andothr
circuinstanc'S, was accepted by the
District A'tcraey, ana fine was Fen
teuted to tho state prieon for life."
