Butler and Burnside.
In the debates in tho Sonato recent
ly Senator Butler had the floor.
"The real question bofore the Son
ate," said Mr. Butlor, in the courso of'
a few remarks with which he followed
Mr. Fry0's Phili ppio "is: Has there
been a disgracefurlbargain In the Son
ato by which the offices of the Senato
tire proposed to be turned over to
somebody ls0." At thio Rurnside
got very mad, and jumped up and
pounding his desk with his fist and
prancing around like an old spavinod
horso in a yellow jackets nest, doclar
ed the statement falso! f'alse Senator
Butler retained his self composure and
after having a good deal of fun at
Burnside's expenso went on with his
speech. The following day Burnside
made the amende honorable and said:
It was very far from my mind, as far
as anything could be, to imputo por
sonal untruthfulnoss to anybody on
that side of the chamber, much loss
the Senator from South Carolina, with
whom my relations have boon always
of tho most friendly naturo, peculiarly
so, and I would bo the last man on
this floor to imputo0 to him any per
sonal dishonor or any personal un
truthfulness. Anybody, no matter
who ho is, anywhoro in this country,
who draws any other infrenceo from
what I then said, draws a wrong ins
forenco, and I do not thinic lie is borne
out by the languago. My languago
was emphatic, and I intended it to be
so; I meant it to bo so. I was reply
ing to a general charge mado on that

It will be soon that the total nnm.
bor of acres cultivated in cotton, corn
and small grains is,3,090,972, which is
80,442 acres more than all the "impro-.
ved land" in the Stato in 1870. The
product of cotton is 510,490 bales, ag
ainst 224,500 in 1870, a gain of about
130 por cent. In corn the increase is
from 7,614,207 buehols in 1870 to 11,0%
763,729 bushels in 1880, or, more than
50 por cent. In oats the tables show
2,715,443 bushels against 613,593
bushol8 in 1870, or in other words, the
ont product of tho Stato has multi
plied moro than fourfold in ten years.
In whoat tho increaso is trom 783,610
bushels in 1870 to 962,431 bushole in
1880, or nearly 20 per cent.
The United States Agricultural Re
port, for 1879 shows that tho average
yield of cotton per acre for all the
cotton States in that year was 188
pounds. Thlio smallest yield in any
county of this State for 1880 is in
Beaifort where it is reported at 362,
and that, it must be remombored, is
long staple cotton. The averago yield
of corn per acre in the United States
in 1879 was 29 bushels; tho average
yield in this Stato for 1880 is only 9
bushels por acro, which shows how
much room there is for improvoment
in our iethiods of cultivation. Tho
avera:ige yield of wheat for 1879 was
18.8 buhe0s; tho averago yield in this
SLtAo for 1880 it given as 5.6 bushols.
T7he averago of oats is given at 13 b1

W AshINGTON, A pril 25 1881.
Thore has been music in the Posts
office Dopartment for some days past,
and the concert is not wholly over
yet. Enough has boon developed,
however, to cause the retiremont of'
Second Assistant, Postmastor-Geneoral
Brady, and to make others in the con
tract division shake in their boots.
The star route mail service has boen a
prolific source of agitation for some
time. When Mr. Brady came before
the last Congress with a big deficien
cy bill for this service, things looked
very suspicious, and something of a
stir was made. The REouse Postoflico
Cornmittee instituted an investigation
and for weoks the publio prints wore
full of the matter. People capable of
putting two and two togethbor hear'd
enough at that time to satisfy them
that there was a large sizeu AIfrican
in the woodpile somewhere, but CJon..
gross took no further action on the
subject, The lobby was well greased
and it was admittod that Brady had
excoeded his authority in thus creat-(
ing a large dofncioney, but they said
no wrong had been done. One roas,
on of this mild treatment at the hands
of Congress was that many cogrss-.
mon bad been un wnil n,.n..a ...:h

gly facts Specifo information bear
ing on the subject is fot the present
carefully w)hbbeld by the postoffice
officials, but it is admitted that the
records show that ow the 1st of Janu
ary, 1880, the pay for carrying the
mails on loss than 100 out of wore
than 9,000 star routeo had been knorea
sod from about 8700,000 at tL6o time of
letting to $2,800,000 by orders for
additional trips and for shortoning
time. A considerablo part of this in
creased service, according to the evi~
dence accumulated, was either not
performed at all or very imperfectly
performed, the irrogularities being
carefully planned, it is supposed, for
the purposo of transferring money
from the .treasury- to the pockets of
favored contractors and their confod,
orates. The irregularities secin to
have been confined chiefly to routes
west of tho Missiksippi river and to
those in tho Territories. Nearly half
of the six millions appropriated for
the star service was apportioned am
ong the favorite contractors of 93
routes, leaving the other half for the
other 8,900 routes. Under this arrn
gemont the ring divided about $2,
000,000, though the share of each is
only known to tho parties to the etcal.

represonts about the only Republican

who edits the Republican, and who
expects to be Secretary of the Senate

Gorham refused to print a card o'f
Jorgensen's stating his position anmd
giving reasons why 80,000 IRepubi',,
cans of Virginia should not surrendor
to Mahiono's handful of repudiators,
whocreupon Jergenson gave his opinion
of Gorham in language mostexr
sive and emphatic. And so it goe.s.
Mean while there is great anxiety
at the WVhite llouse and in Republi,
can circles generally, over the u ncons
firmed alpointmoents. TIhe situation
is really damaging to the party as
well as distresmsinig to certain ambitIous
individuals, and ways and means to
secu1rO a~ few oxectitivo sessionis
without any ap~parent surrender arec
being discussoa. One way that has
tbeen suggestedl is for some Sonator'
who has a partly independent consti
tuency, like Millor' of' Cahlfornia, to
join thme Democrats in Voting to go
into a session for confirmations. His
colleagues would appenr to be indlig,.
