-A letter from New York, of Saturday, says:
"There is a marked pressure, just now, to sell
real estate. Houses of almost every descrip?

Brooklyn, can be had on very easy terms. In
many cases sales have been effected by the pur?
chaser paying down only a year's rent. This
would seem lo Indicate that holders have no

advertised, without finding a solitary bidder

-The decrease in the ratio of beer cattle to
population in this country during the last ten

we had 25,640,337 neat cattle in the country,
whUe now, with n population of more than
40,000,000, according to the report of the De?
partment of Agriculture, we have only 21,633,
0C9, showing a net decrease since 18C0 o? more
than 4.000,000 animals. In Texas alone, since
1866, thc decrease in cattle has been 114,137,
the number in the State at this time bein?
only 2,697,338, to 3,111,475 in 1866. The cause
of this is said to be the great increase in dalry
farming, the milch cows in 1800 being thirty
four per cent, of the whole, while now they
are forty-three per eent.. but even the ratio of
milch cows to population has greatly decreas?
ed in ten years, and the number ol* sheep is
said to be less, by one-half, than ten years
-The meeting between Prince Henri de
Bourbon and Duke de Montpensier took place
seven miles from thc walls of Madrid. Thc
principals drew lots for the first shot, and
Prince Henri de Bourbon won. The adversa?
ries exchanged their first fire at ten paces
without result. They then advanced on each
other, and at seven paces the Prince fired and
missed. Thc Duke returned the fire, shooting
his adversary through the head. The latter
fell to the ground, and in a few moments ex?
pired. Duke de Montpensier showed the ut?
most calmness during the combat, but was
much affected when informed of its result. As
the Prince was poor, the Duke offers to pro?
vide for his widow and children. The quarrel
was caused by a harsh letter against the Duke
which the Prince addressed to the Montpcn
sierists. The letter branded Montpensier as a
Jesuit conspirator, and called him a bloated
French pastry cook. Montpensier and his
seconds are in Madrid, and have not been ar?
rested. When the Puke had fired twice thc
seconds endeavored to effect a reconciliation,
but the Prince was furious, and refused. It is
rumored French intrigue is at the bottom of
Jordan and thc War in Cuba.
Success is everything. In the late war it
justified the periodic lies of Seward, the per?
juries of Lincoln, the butcheries of Grant.
In the tragedy of reconstruction it glorified
the torch of Sherman and Sheridan, the
spoon of Butler, the shin of Sickles and the
cigar of Grant.
General Thomas Jordan is now enjoying
the benefit of this great social law. Ile has
defeated General Fuell?. This fact proves
that he is a hero and a patriot
A few years ago. this same hero owed the
Government of the United State3 some twen?
ty thousand dollars, which he, as quarter?
master, had in hts custody. He has never
accounted for that amount, and never will.
General Jordan settles accounts of this sort
neither with the pen nor with the sword. He
The people of the Shenandoah Valley
know General Jordau. They talk about his '
bad blood. They recite sensational stories
about his family.
We know nothing. We only remember
that this man was fighting for slavery in
1SC4, who for the past year or two has been
fighting for emancipation -who served Gen?
eral Beauregard ns his chief of staff just as
Aaron Jones, the prize fighter, served thc
gallant creole as his orderly. And now this
same Thomas Jordan, whom the people of
his native valley repudiate, presents himself
in Cuba as the great emancipator, the armed
vindicator of moral ideas.
"We do not pretend to know a great deal
about the "Cuban cause." Well nigh im?
penetrable is the smoke of the conflict that
has so long overhung the Queen of the An?
tilles. The outside world has been cajoled
-tJ-u-. I' . *?*- n ??Irin lr m-n Inonu
campaigns, their skirmishes battles. Both
have acknowledged an inhuman policy of
arson and murder. The volunteers from
Catalonia have revelled in butchery. On the
other hand, the Cuban General Quesnda, in
hi? late report to the Cuban Junta of New
York, acknowledges the destruction in cold
blood of seven hundred Spanish prisoners,
by way of reprisals. An unarmed or a dis?
armed enemy is, by cither party, doomed to
We have read with interest Uje impassion?
ed appeals in behalf of "free Cuba," which
fill the editorial-columns of the New York
Sun. And we have scrutinized the reports
of the olficial patrons of "law and order"
upou the island. But the more we read the
more a sense of horror grows. We see a
French revolution emptied of its ideas and
dwarfed into pigmy dimensions-as if an
army of fiery flying dragons were transmut?
ed into a nest of hissing asps and striking
scorpions-raging, and devastating, and
slaughtering everywhere. In the history of
either party appears the policy of heartless
adventurers, the vendetta of brigands, the
blind fury of Kilkenny cats. If our govern?
ment could interfere in such a case, we
should be glad to see it putting its armed
heel upon both the combatants, and crushing
them out in the interest of thc humanity
which they are outraging every day.
The Money and Hie Muscle of Immi?
grants tO tile Sci ut h.
The advantages to the South of white im?
migration are pretty generally understood;
but the value of the new settlers is usually
regarded as growing out of their power as
producers, and not as consumers. There is
an abundance of laud which can be bought
at low prices. Trustworthy and intelligent
labor is scarce. These two points indicate
the direction in which thc immigrant may
be profitably employed in the varied walks
of agriculture. Commodore Maury, of Vir?
ginia, goes, however, a step further, and
shows with Iiis accustomed clearness the
immense value of the immigrant as a cus?
tomer who brings his own market with him,
and becomes, in his own person, a market
of Hie best. In this way the ordinances of
commerce, which require producers lo go
forth in search of a market, are annulled by
the thrifty immigrant. This is illustrated by
Commodore Maury in this way:
"Fancy a German farmer willi his wife and
child coming to settle in your neighborhood;
he wants a cow and a calf, a sow and pigs, a
horse, and perhaps a yoke of oxen, with a few
Kcese. turkeys, ducks and fowls; he wants
household furniture, kitchen utensils and farm?
ing Implements, provender for his cattle, food
and raiment tor himself and family, and seed
for his lands-making a total expenditure be?
side the cost of his land, in money, or labor,
thc equivalent of money, of $150 or $250 a
"Now observe the value of this market : It
is not as though these articles had to bc ex?
ported, but it is rather like the farmer who re?
turns everything to his land again and is doubly
enriched. Everything that is sold to the im?
migrant is consumed in the neighborhood; lie
brings the market to the producer. In this busi?
ness there are no middlemen; no transporta?
tion, freight, insurance, commissions, storage,
and all the et ceteras which usually attend the
sale of produce. No -svslem of trade is more
wholesome or profitable than that which the
immigrants bring with them."
Wlitt i? true of one immigrant is true of
thousands. At present the total number of
immigrants annually cominginto the United
States may be set down at 400,000. These
go to the West, take their markets with
them, aud create an unostentatious com?
merce of about $100,000,000. This sum, in
money or the worth of money, goos directly
into the hands of producers. Nothing is
paid to middlemen, or for freight, insurance,
storage, and their like. This commerce, in
the opinion of Commodore Maury, "is more
"profitable to the farmers of the West than
"the cotton crop is to the planters of the
"South; for though it sells for the larger
"sum, yet profits are eaten up by commis
"sions, transportation, &c, whereas the
"farmers of the West net their $100,000,000
"from the immigrants without any draw?
Thia estimate, moreover, assumes that the
immigrant does not want to buy anything of
his neighbors after the first year.
The money spent by the immigrants has
undoubtedly had much to do with the pros?
perity of the Western States, and if immi?
gration Westward were to cease there would
be a serious distress, not only because of the
want of new blood to supplement the natu?
ral increase, but also because there would
be no way of adding capital except by the
slow processes of labor. The muscle and
the money of the immigrant would alike be
And in connection with direct trade, im?
migration is of special importance. Nume?
rous attempts have been made to establish
direct communication by steam with Europe,
ana Charleston has done more, and said less,
than any other city on the South Atlantic
coast. For two years we have had a line of
fine steamships running direct to Liverpool;
but we want inward cargoes. Upon this
point Commodore Maury says:
'Unless the merchants of our seaport towns
can Induce thc merchants of the inland cities
of the West to import directly through South?
ern ports, I, for one, can see no prospect ol
direct trade save only through a strong tide ot
European immigration this way. That will
give us inward cargoes. Human freight is
the most profitable to carry; it embarks itself,
stores Itself, and ls landed without expense."
Immigration is just as necessary to make
direct trade profitable as for tilling our fields
and buying our produce; for "until weare
"in a condition to distribute among the in
"land cities that may be tributary to us
large quantities of assorted merchandise,
"there is no chance of direct trade except
"through immigration; and it has been the
"absence of foreign immigration into the
"South that ha3 barred our way to direct
It is certain, too, that immigration cannot
be had without money. And if we want it
wc must make up our minds to pay for it,
until the pioneers become sulficiently well
established to take that burden upon them?
Au immense Irish immigration flows into
New York. Apparerttly nobody pay3 for it but
the immigrants themselves. But what are
the facts? The Emigration Board of Great
Britain, who made it the subject of special
inquiry, reports that in the seventeen years
from 1S45 to 1S64, there was transmitted to
Ireland to assist emigration no less than
?13,000,000, averaging, as we value sterling,

GREAT ABDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Snpenor Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, wc deem lt unnecessary at present ' to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There is hardly a etty or town of any note in the
country luto which they have not found their
way. The reason of tbts widespread popularity
and dally Increasing demand is owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Oar Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pnre and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think it the best that ls made, at least,
this is the decision of the best judges In the coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which are really bat worthless Compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
