BALTIMORE, Mb., March, 1879.
The Hard Times in England.
Thc fidqgestion, therefore, is that thc
hard times aro owing to an accumulation of
disasters and mistakes occurring within
comparatively narrow limits of timo over
most parts of thc earth inhabited by man.
Most of us havo at least a dim conscious
ness that thc fecont Indian famines in
?'nugal and Madras may havo had some
thing to do with our troubles, since wo
know that tho Indian peasantry aro ordina
rily largo customers of tho North of
England manufacturer. But thero have
been accounts of a tcrriblo famine In Chino,
and, for all wo know, that calamity also had
ito share ls diminishing tho profits of Man
Chester. Theo, again, for livo-and-twenty
years thero hus been nh almost continuous
succession of dessolhtlhg wars, and thc
timo ha? gono by when a war can bo looked
upon as morely affecting thc States engaged
in it. Thero must have been vast destruct
ions of capital in all these Wars; and when
capital ls once destroyed on a largo scale
tho wholo world now-a-days becomes con
scious of it for ovil. Nobody, however,
can venturo on even a conjeoturo how much
of tho wealth of tho world waa annihilated
in tho great Amorican war of secession, in
tho war between Franco and Austria, in that
botweon Prussia ond Austria, in the Franco
German war, and tho rcoont struggle bo
tweon Russia and Turkey. A multitude of
customers must huvo beo'omo pouter and a
multitude, of producers less activo through
theso deadly Contests; and this augmenta
tion of povorty and diminution of product
ivo oncrgy must havo happened oven in
tho countries which least show tho marks
of tho strain upon them, Franco hos
suffered loss than Ocfmany from tho ovents
of 1870 and 1871, but still sho must havo
suffered; nnd her losses, liko those of 60
many other communities, must oount for
something in produoing tho general depres
sion of thc world. M. Maurioo Block
seems, however, to doubt whether continued
war bas boen so directly disastrous as ill
advised speculation. Ho points to tho
extravagantly large number of railway pro
jects which v/ero sanctioned, and to some
extent curried out, in Austria-Hungary and
(Jcrmony in thc yeera preceding 1873.
Tho samo lavishness of construction, wo
need not say, was indulged in fn this conn try,
but thu delusion which lcd to it Won found
out and exposed rather earlier. Now of
theso railways largo numbers yield bo profit,
tnooy wero not really wau ted, and, thora
foro, minister but slightly to tho augmenta
tion of nationdl wealth, Tho ooonomioal
ovlls traocablo to them do not, however,
tho less romain. A great part of tho capi
tal of Europo and Amorioa is withdrawn
for a timo from tho general stock and is
looked up in unproductive o?d very
partially useful Investment. Meantime,
tho unnatural stimulus givon to industry by
all this speculation still leaves its effects
behind it. Thc crowds of laborers brought
togcthor by tho monufooturo of railway
material oro unable to transfer their labor
elsewhere, but tho railway material ceases
to be ruado because it eau no longer be
Tho nearly universal distress has, there
fore, been tho accumulated result of all
theso misfortunes and follies, of which
some made themselves felt at once and some
ofter an interval of timo. No doubt ob
sourer causes have also contributed to tho
disorder of commerco, os, for cxamplo, that
menacing depreciation of silver, in fuco of
wliieh English and Indian statesmanship
seem to bo so discreditably helpless. It
chiefly shows itself to us in tho difficulties
of Indian finance; but in point of fact it is
disorganizing thc entire mechanism of ex
change in those poorer countries of Europo
and Asia which oro now just os essential as
richer communities to tho world wide sys?
tem of purchasing food nud selling articles
of luxury and usc. Wo havo no spneo nt
prcscut to follow M. Blook in bis opinions
on tho probable duration of tho economical
troubles;- or on tho best woy of meeting
somo of thom. One expedient is; however,
at once condemned by u moderately accu
rate comprehension of tho economical con
dition of tho world as wo havo attempted to
explain it. Protective turiffs can only
diminish thc external buying and selling
power of each community. They ore, in
foot, un attempt to give tho part of thc
population assembled in towns tho exclusive
command of tho market supplied by thc
part of thc population directly or indirectly
engaged in agricultural industry; but, os
thc agricultural interest must bo protcotcd
also, they oro in fact a contrivance for
atarving thoso town populations which oro
tho most choractcristio feature of tho social
order of our day.-Pall Mall Gazelle.

[Netos arid Courier, 20th.
Rev. Henry Ward Bccohcr hnsk boco
South. On his return to Now York ho
preached n sermon from which wc cxtraot
Mr. Bocobor depreciated scotionnl dis
likes and those duo to differences of raeo.
This groot nation was dividod by an invisi
ble lino, morally visible enough, on both
sides of which tho North and South had
stood in bloody antagonism for five terrible
years, lo my own judgment,, when I
consider human nature, when I consider
thal a proud peoplo have ecco themselves
emptied out of power, their politioal oxis
tenco almost annihilated, their property
swept out of their hands as by a consuming
flame, tho ascendancy of tho despised slavo
established over them by what was to him
a foreign arm, I should nut have wondered
if there had been ton times tho resistance
that there has been to reconstructivo meas
ures. Novcr in history hos a pcop'.o borne
BO mu ob with so mitch patience, gallantry
and patriotism-a spectacle of moral g-oud
cur and of substantial good intent and honor
in those who havo been so terrifically
scourged which is without parallel. Thc
spirit winch would set tho North ogainst
tho Eolith, tho East against tho West, tho
Germans against tho old Puritans, or tho old
Puritans against tho Germans, tho whites
against tho blacks, or tho blacks against tho
vvliitcd, in not only politically criminal, but
it is absolutely subversive of tho fundamen
tal instincts of humanity. There is yet thc
power and thc honor iu thia country to hold
mon together in charity and unity. When
it was tho need of tho untempered North
to bo nerved to resist thc arrogance, of
plantation domination I waa not wanting.
What wo ncod now ia love, charity
union; I speak again. Though I hated
slavery 1 did not bato tho slaveholder. 1
loud him and I still lovo him. I lovo all
mankind, not only for what they aro, but
for what they aro going to bc.

RICHMOND, VA., May 22.-What aro
known as tho "gold oases" wcro taken up
for trial boro to doy in tho United Stntea

These coses embrace about a dozen suits Ol)
thc part of tho United States government
against ex State officials who wore in au

to $6,000, and aggregating ribou't ?20,000.
It is claimed that tho insurgont government
of Virginia had in tho treasury on tho 2d

silver, with which tho ofliocrs of this gov
eminent paid themselves nnd soldiers in

A. PROMPT JURUR.-Au amusing story
IR told of tho way a juror in Georgia went
for a conviction. A murder caso WOB being
tried, and groot difficulty experienced iu
getting a jury. . Eleven jurors had been
sworn in and in tho next panncl that wos
broght in was a ?mall, lean, cadaverous
looking fellow who had ono shoo, his pants
wero nearly obovo his lances, his shirt opon
in front and back, and tho aforesaid pauta
were held up by a singlo sqspondor. Tho
Solicitor proceeded to note tho usual ques
tions in suoh oases, OB follows:
"Ilavo you, frt?tii. Moving seen tho crime
committed, or heard any of tho testimony
delivered uudcr oath, formed and expressed
au opinion ns to tho guilt or innocence of
tho prisoner at tho bar?" ,
Tho "siuglo gallus" follow, in a clear and
distinct voice, answered:
Second question-"Ilavo you any preju
dice or bias resting on your mind for or
against tho prisoner at tho bar?"
Third question-"Is your mind perfectly
impartial between the State and tho ac
fourth question-"Aro you consoicn
tiously opposed to capital punishment?"
Tho Stato didn't Uko tho juror much,
but it being late and tho jurors Booree, bc
was pdt upon tho jury in tho usual manner.
Thc Solicitor says: "Juror, look Upon tho
prisoner," and when tho command was
giver1 he bent over sconniug him from head
to foot. Tho juror looked tho prisoner
firmly in tho face, and then turning to tho
judgo, ho HO id, iu a firm solemn voice,
11Y cs Judgo I think bo's guilty."
SUPPER-THROWING.-Tho ancient cus
tom of throwing nu old slipper ofter tho
brido os abo IcavcR her home is still iu
still in many places believed to bring luck
to thc happy couple. Rut it moy bo a
question whether tho old shoo WOB thrown
for luok only. It is stated in Holy Writ
that "tho receiving of a shoo was an evi
dence and symbol of rejecting or resigning
it." The latter is ovidenoc in Deuteronomy,
twenty fifth chapter, where tho ceremony of
a widow rejecting her hu6bind's brother in
man iago is by losing his shoo from oil' his
foot. And in Ruth wo arc told that "it
was tho custom in Israel concerning chang
ing that a man plucked oft' his oboe and
delivered it to bis neighbor," Uenoo thc
throwing of n shoo ofter a bride was a sym
bol of renunciation of dominion and author
ity over ber father or guardian, and the
receipt of tho shoo by tho bridegroom, even
if accidental, was an omen that tho author
ity wne transferred to him.
REDUCING THE RATE OP INTEREST.
Tho Legislature of tho State of New York
hos agreed to reduco thc legal rato of inte
rest to six per cont. .It hos been at seven
per cent, sinco tho adoption of tho constitu
tion of 1854. This is very significant ns a
sign of tho times, and as evidence that in
tho leading commercial State of thc Union
tho impression has becomo general that
tlicro will bo no immediate return in this
country to tho high rates of interest which
have previously prevailed. This notion of
tho Now York Legislature is in accord with
that of several of tho Western States, thc
Legislatures of which have recently lowered
tho official rates of interest.
DEATH OP EX-SENATOR GA?L??RD IN
LlOERTA.-A letter has been received by
tho officers of thc Liberian Exodus Associ
ation in Charleston, from Clomont leona,
stating that ex Senntor S. E. Gaillard, ono
of tho colonists who went out from Charles
ton to Monrovia in tho Arior in April, 1878,
died near Monrovia on tho 13th of April
Ipst, and was buried with Masonic honors.
Tho letter further rta tes that Irons has also
been nick, but has recovered, and that thc
r.cnt of tho Charleston oxodists aro well.
Tho death of Gaillard will prove a hoavy
blow to tho exodists, as bo was ono of tho
very few colonists who went out from hero
Who hod tho advantages of education and

largest and cheapest cotton crop ever mado

and of sk ill to turn its bounties to account.
During tho provolcnco of a gale in Vir
ginia City, Nev., recently, tall pillars of
sand woro to bo seen waltzing about on tho
deserts far to tho Eastward, showing that
things woro also rather wild that way. At
times such clouds of dust roso abovo tho
desert that tho Humboldt rango and other
high mountains in that direction wcro

An agricultural society offered a preinit?m.
for the best mode of irrigation, which was
printed ''iiritation" by mistake. A farmer
sent his wife to claim tho prizo.
Tho boy lay iu his 1 ittlo bcd,
Though oft his motlier ea lied:
"Get upi como down to broakfost, Fred!"
"Got up!" his fathor bowlod.
Yet quiet and sereno ho loy;
. As though ho heard them not;
Opossum did tho youngster play,
Though things were getting hot.
Tho timo possod on-ho did not start!
Hut took another nap;
His father up the stairs did dort,
And gavo his door n rap.
Ile cried aloud, "say Freddie, say!
Why don't you lcavo your bcd!"'
But silently young Freddie lay,
AH though ho were quite dead.
"Spook, Freddie," once ngain bb oricd,
For I must soon bc gone;
And"-buta lusty snoro replied
Pa's patience nearly gone.
Up to bia face quick ran tho blood,
He toro his auburn hair,
A moment at tho doorway stood
In still, yet deep despair.
And shouted 'gain, with thunderous
. "Young scoundrel, do you hoar?"
While iii tho hall loud ticked the clock,
That grated on his car.
With angry push ho opened tho door,
And slammed it to again;
With noisy strides across the floor,
To tho bcd he walked amain.
Then camon sound liko threshing wheat,
Or butcher tendering steak;
llcar screams! hear moans! hear scamper*
Ah, Freddie is awake.
A ringing bell, a mother's coll,
. May sometimes rouse a lad:
But tho only shuro thing after ali,
Is a father when ho's mad. '
