ing's Phenix, it has bon discovered
by those who know,'a'tit the "Blue
Ridge" is not dead, aind no purpose
exists In the minds ,of its present
guardians to strangle iobr permit it
to die for want of pdwlum. On the
contrary,'if the coutriof 'with Cre.,s
well & Co. bas, in fact ben rescind
ed, as to uhich, more, 01i be devel
oped on the meeting of lhl4 Direction,
it has only been done" allow those
in authority to "rollu''uheir'sleeves,"
"spit in their hand.," a 1'take a new
bold that will enable . nm to press
forward the great 'w to its early
completion, without ling on the
State to meet acefuIn 'ferest, or for
further aid at 'pires .L" In other
words, the contract witb' Oresswell 4
Co. is merely in abn :ofr and if a
renewal is not nade i h them, the
work will be let to of outractors,
upon a now basjs, e. eiotlng terms
much more advantageout to the State,
and assuring the constrpction in duo
time of this t og imRant line of
jpteronal commenerd. When the con
tract with Creswell & Co. was made,
gold was at a premium of forty per
cent., and the estimates in currency
were made upon that basis. Now,
gold has receded t.o twenty-four per
cent. and is rapidly tending down
wards, which will enable the Compa
ny to construct the work for an aggre
g"no sum so greatly reduced as to
approximate the original maximum
estimates of Col. Guinn. The public
may rest assured, therefore, that the
present apparent condition of things,
is the result of a wito policy on the
part of the Blue Ridge Company, and
that no purpose exists in the mind of
the President, Governor Scott, or any
one else, to abandon the work. In
deed, as niatters now stand, that can
not be done. Other contracts have
been entered- into, in relation, to the
work, besides that with Cresswell &
Co., and altogether some $300,000 or
$400,000 of the guaranteed bonds of
the Company .have been pledged by
law and praotically appropriated to a
continuation of the enterprise. To
abandon it now, therefore, would not
only Involve the total loss of the $3,.
000,000 formerly expended by the
State and the people, bot wo-ild be a
downright repa~diation of contracts
recently made, and a sacarifice of, per
haps, $400,000 of the new bonds.

A f abinet Minister's Reasons for Not
Favoring the Annexation of ' uba and
I heard a Cabinet Minister remark
the other doy that ' Cuba would not
be a desirable acquisition for the Uni.
ted States." Said the Cabinet Minis
ter :-"Iu the first place, it would do
stroy our revenue derived from that
inland. We now obtain from her
some fifty or sixty millions of revenue.
That would be all lost to us by ao
quisition. In the second place, I
don't think mingling with the Latin
raen, at d partie'sl'rly the Spaniards,
would be ben,cidl. Just look at the
history of the Soith Americnn re
publies and of Mexico. Hsi it not
been a -ories of revolutions, wbih
prove their inabil ty for self-govern
ment ? I ask you honestly if that is
not a fact now ? I would like to soe
Cuba independent ; but, after all, I
am not satisfied it would be better for
the Cubans to succeed. They never
could govern themselves; and, were
they to become annexed to our Union,
I think it would be no advantage.
What, for instance, would we do with
their negroes ? They are not of the
same kind as ours. they don't speak
our languhge, and a great portion of
them are pure African,. Our negroes
have, to some extent, received the
Impress of the American character.
They are advanced in civilization,
compared with those in Cuba. If we
were suddenly to become possessed of
Cuba I don'taknter how we should get
along with suolan blement. We would
and them a difficult class to manage
in an enfranchised state ; and as to
keeping them in a rtate of hoi.dago,
r,f cour.e that is out of the question.
Now, if we could get Cuba on a sort
Df probation, it would be well enough t
that is, if we could exercise a sort of
healthy protectorate over it and keep
it so for ten or twenty years, until the
African element might become civiliz
ad or until Anglo Saxon settlers might
neutralize the perniclous influence of
the Spaniards and Africans, then we
might safely say, 'Welcome, welcome,
to our free Union 1' But, until then,
I think we are bettor as we are."
The Minister likewise allu led to
Bt. Domingo in the same way, saying
that we would have to encounter the
same difficulties by its annexation,
t hough not, perhaps, to such an alarm
ing degree. He thought, too, that the
possession of Sr. Domingo would re
quire to keep up a power ful navy for
its protection in case of a foreign war,
and that both Cuba and St. Domingo,
in such an event, would be the first
objects of hostile attacks. "We
should have to send off there a large
fleet," said the M inister, "which might
be bettor, employed in protecting our
own extended sea coast."
Such are the views of this member
of the Cabinet, and I have the best
reason to know that they are shared
by at least two other members.
No OI:NasE WANTED IN TENNEs
sEa.--Yosterday in the Tennessee le
gilature, en a bill incorporating the
Mississippi Valley Incorporation Com
pany, an amendment forbidding the
importation of Chinese into Tennes
see was adopted-yeas fifty three, nays
fifteen. Now, as the majority for the
amendment cornea from the conserva
tive or democratic party, we Infer that
this party in Tenneossee us satisfied with
the negro for laboring p urposes, and
is afraid of the risks of mixing him
up with the Chinese. We haid sup.
posed that the Southern. democracy
were generally in favor 6f introduoing
the Chinaman, for the purpose of
rooting out the African by cheaper
labor and by a race nearer the white
man. This vote, .however, In the
Tennessee Logislature indicates a dif
ferent sentiment, or the beginning of
a Southern reaction against the Ohi
namnan and In favor of the A frican,
whiph Is after all, perhaps, a good sign
in behalf of harmony between the
Southern white and. black . racoa.-N.

The Sues Janal-The Bombay Cable.
The Suez Canal is now completed.
Those who believed and hope4 against
hope are jubilant. Those- who, like
Thomas, wanted proof before they
could believe have been compelled to
admit that they are fully satisfied.
The canal has ben traversed from
end to end with wonderful ease, and
the Empress Eugenia, with a bravery
worthy of woman and worthy of her
high position, has resolved to make
the homeward course not with the
help of the English railroad, but by
the canal and in horown ship L'Aigle.
All that the most enthusiastic friends
of the canal ever dreamed of has been
realized, and it promises to produce
fruit. The canal unites two great
oceans and in a particular sense four
great continents. The circumnaviga
tion of the globe, so long deemed im
possible, so long a fruitful source of
enterprise, so long, too, an accomplish
ed fact, but so long so slow, is now
reduced to weeks in place of years.
Formerly a Turkish, Greek, Austrian,
Italian, French, Spanish, Partuguese,
Dutch or British ship had to round the
Cape of Good Hope. We cannot say
more in favor ot the Suez Canal than
this-that the sea voyage from Gibral
tar is lessened by six thousand miles.
Some few days ago we showed that
the canal would be a glory to France
but a benefit to Great Britain. In
the Herald of yesterday we gave some
facts which amply justify that asser
tion. On Saturday, the 6th of this
month, the Groat Eastern sailed from
Portsmouth with a deep sea cable on
board ; her companion ships contained
so ouch more ; altogether there was
of cable some four thousand statute
miles. The object of the expedition
is to complete the Malta and Alexan
dria lino, which already connects
London with Suez and Aden, by con
tinuing the line from Aden to Bom
bay and Calcutta and the other In
dian centres. When this line is com
pleted according to the existing plan
it will not be possible, except through
the neglect of officials, for London
not to know every day what has hap
penod-in Calcutta, Bombay and Mad
drnq. Wahnt London knows the world
will know. But L audon, rather than
Paris, u ill profit by the result. The
work, however, is not completed by
thin canal and by this cable. We
must have more cables. Particularly
we must have a canal across the Isth
mus of Darien. Until this is done
we must not say our work is done.

A couple of lads in Portage City,
Wisconsin, climbed a tree outside the

Forepaugh's circus. What came of
it, the Regisler reports: "As soon as
the elephant was through with the
ring, the manager brought him out
and hitched him to the identical tree
from the limbs of which the lads wore
viewing the circus. To the boys up
in the tree this looked a little out of
order; but they kept as quiet as
death, fearing they would either lose
the closing views of the performance
or be the subjcot of displeasure of the
circus man if he should see them 'dead
heading' the show. In due time the
performance closed, the crowd dis
persed, and horror of horrors!I the
keepers of the animals now added to,
