Tho revolution now in progress in
Spain, ought to develop, if well con?
tested, some military features which
for dash and strategy will bo new to
the Iberian peninsula. Gen. Prim,
the leader of the Spanish revolution?
ists, it will be recollected, after his
return from Mexico in 1862, whither
he was sent with a portion of her
Catholic Majesty's army, paid a visit,
to tho United States, tho motive of
which becomes now pretty clearly
apparent. He sought out McClellan,
at tho head of the army of the Poto?
mac, loamed a great deal from that
officer in refereuce to American war
fare, studied the character of Ameri
dan strategy, became acquainted with
all his leading generals, attended
carefully to the details of army or?
ganization, and entered with the en?
thusiasm of a student into the nc
quirement of all the military know
ledge which the bloody campaigns
against Richmond were capable of
affording. He passed afterwards over
to tho Confederate lines, where ho
was received with all the courtesy
and consideration which one of his
distinguished rank might anticipate
On tho other side, there was no les
material ready at hand to furnish
him with new ideas of army organi?
zation and of army movements.
Stonewall Jackson's series of brilliant
achievements were exactly in the
line of his studies. The havoc that
officer made of an army much larger
? than his own and far more effectively
eqnipped, formed ample food for re?
flection, and must huve suggested to
the mind of the prospective leader
of the Spanish revolutionists, the
feasibility of one day being nble to
accomplish something similar by
using tho same means, tho same dash
and daring in a qnarter whore he
could only expoct to meet the old,
cautious, regular tactics which Jack?
son neutralized and defeated by the
simple uso of energetic, intrepid and
unexpected advances. The part of
tho country in which tho Spanish re?
volutionists are now operating, should
be favorable to that peculiar kind of
. warfare which Stonewall Jackson
nsed with such tremendous effect. It
is woody and mountainous, and if
Prim can only succeed in getting to?
gether material but half as brave and
enduring as Jackson bed, there will
be little doubt, if ho uses his experi?
ence to advantage, that the royal
troops of Spain will fare badly at his
hands. An unhesitating spirit used
in the right measure by Prim will
make the royal staudard flotter tremu?
lously in a tight, and the royal Dons
show their coat-tails to tho r?volu
tionists.-New York Herald.
WOMEN AS PAINTERS A FAILURE.
The Now York World pronounces
tho employment of women as printers
a failure. That establishment tried
tho exporiraeut and has been com?
pelled to abandon it. The writer
says that, from first to last, 100 girls
were employed at tho case. Some
of thom became tolerable composi?
tors, and aro now making fair wages
on book work. Tho greater propor?
tion never reached an equal skill.
When employed by tho piece, their
earuiugs fell far below that of tho
men. Thoy have not the endurance I
of tho mon, seven or eight hours perl
day being moro than sufficient to tax !
their strength. Fow of then? could set
clean proof, and, if possible, always
shirked its correction. Illegiblo
manuscript thoy were utterly unable
to docipher. They could never be?
come familiar with tho spider tracks
of tho editors and reporters, ns male

Thackeray, is traveling in this coun?
try in company with hor husband.
EFFECT OF THE STATE OF TBINGS
ON SOUTHERN CREDIT.-It appears
from a lotter published iu yesterday's
]i"yni,j ju connection v.'ith our Geor?
gia correspondence, that Northern
capitalists are afraid to credit tho
South under tho present disturbed
state of affairs. Tbo cashier of the
National Park Bunk of this city, iu
j reply to an application from Atluntn
I for negotiating a loan of money,
says: "In happier and calmer times,
wo should have been glad to enter?
tain the negotiation; but in thc pre?
sent ?tate of things, political and
commercial, our board is adverse to
taking risks out of the pale of ordi?
nary mercantile transactions." This
is the result of radical reconstruction
and misrule in attempting to over?
throw tho laws of nature and com?
mon sense, by putting tho ignorant
negroes as a governing power over
tho intelligent whites. However,
there is reason to hopo that this state
of things will not continue long.
The negroes aro discovering tho mis?
take they have been led into, and arc
looking to co-operation, both politi?
cally and materially, with their old
masters and the white peoplo of their
common section of country. Then
the enormous and valuable crops of
tho South, particularly tho cotton
crop, worth about two hundred and
fifty millions of dollars, will soon
give the Southerners the means they
want. If they continue to work as
industriously ns they have worked
tho last year, they will soon bo inde?
pendent of the North for cash, and
the South will become the riebest
country in the world.

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE SOUTH.
THE WEEKLY GLEANER-Devoted to
the rehabilitation of tho South in its former
prosperity-is offered to subscribers at the
low rate of il 50 for six months.
The annals of the American Republic
show no political campaign comparable in
the magnitude of its issues and the mo?
mentousness of its results to that for tho
Presidency, now pending. Indeed, tho
very lifo of free government is on trial,
and it will bo a sad commentary on tho
capacity of the people for tho exerciso of
that high trust if they, the jurors who aro
to try tho issue, pronounce a verdict of
self-condemnation. If the South has any
hope it is in the success of the Democratic
party in tho coming Presidential election;
and every citizen is vitally interested in
the progress of the battle, and cannot
afford to be without a sound and reliable
As an organ, not only of sound Demo?
cratic principles, hut as a vehicle of ge?
neral news, the GLEANER is confidently
commended to Southern support. A large
eight-page paper, of forty-eight columns,

au organ to disabuse the Northern mind
of the falsehoods in relation to Southern
thought and actions, with which it is the
industrious vocation of certain parlies to
poison the springs of Northern feeling on
Southern subjects. In this view of the
matter, no more valuable aid to tho true
reconstruction of the country and restora?
tion of just sentiment at the North toward
tho South can ho rende red than by sub?
scribing to the WEEKLY GLEANER and
sending it to acquaintances and friends in
the Northern States.
