body has added $1,000,000 iu railroad and'
other bonds, mostly Southern, to the
Peabody ?ducation fand, so-called, and
$384,000 in Florida six per cent, bonds,

EXPLANATION WANTED;-The radical
organs of the North continue to assert
?hat the perpetrators of the murder of
Atkins and one or two others in Georgia
are well known and that they could be
arrested at any hour if the Georgia au?
thorities wished tc arrest thom. The as?
sertion is as foolish as it is false. Its
authors know that President Grant,
several weeks ago, instructed his own
military commander in Georgia to use
the force under him to aid the civil au?
thorities in discovering and arresting the
murderers and bringing them to justice,
and that the commander replied prompt?
ly that it should be done. Why, then,
is it not done? If tho criminals are
known and oan be arrested ia an hour,
why, after weeks and woeks, with Grant's
military at work, are they not arrested?
Have the military been bribed? Havo
they turned rebels? What can the mat?
ter be? Who knows but they have found
out that all the killing has been done by
negroes and aro carefully concealing tho
fact for tho good of the nd ministration
and tho honor of tho negro race?
DisanACFUii TO RADICALISM.-Tho
military satrap in Mississippi, nearly
three years ago, acting under tho au?
thority of Congress, gave notice that
any oitizen who should dismiss, or evan
threaten to dismiss, negroes from hie
service for voting with the radical party
would be punished, and General Canby
has just put a man on trial in Virginia
for saying that he would dismiss his ne?
gro hands for voting with his enemies.
And yet it is a fact that the Grant ad?
ministration, before it had lived through
the period of a puppy's blindness, issued
an official order, that all the tens oi
thousands of laborers in its employ, whe
were not of its party, should bo driven
out to feed or starve, live or die, os the j
might! Is there any undiscovered dcptl
of shame, asks the Louisville Courier
Journal, left for radicalism to root dowi
to? Messrs. Grant & Co. act on the as
sumption that a mah hos not so mud
right to select the labor for his own farn
as they have to select that for tho navy
yards and work-shops belonging to tin
ooo nt ry.

No one can read the gasconading
grandiloquent reports made by eithe
side in the Cuban war, without confess
ing himself totally at a loss how far t<
credit the information received from tba
island. Snch alarming ' discrepancy ii
casualties uniformly appears at the ex
pense of the onemy, and the battles ar
conducted so rc:y leisurely, being in on
instance adjourned on account of i
shower, that v$o ar? afforded reason ti
doubt whether any engagement, worth;
of the name, has yet been fought. I lo\
far thc Fabian policy may serve tho in
terests of the revolutionists, it is inipos
siblc for us to estimate, but unless the;
exhibit a little more dash than hereto
fore, American onthusiasm in their be
half must wauo. Spain is said to b
getting tired of the Cubau war, aud i
proof of it thc Impartial, one of th
leading Spanish journals, makes a vcr;
strango statement. It says that agent
of tho Government havo been sent abou
to the newspnpor offices to tamper wit
the press, with a view to obtaining it
advocacy for tho sale of Cuba to th
United States. The Spanish causo i
Cuba is by no means hopeless, but th
cost of carrying on thc p. cont demil tor
war nt snch a distance is too bnrdensom
to ba longer endured. The Spanish Gc
vernment think they may as well have
good round sum for their Hue possobsior
aud thoy havo, according to thc indip
nant Inpartial, invited tho press to gt
up an agitation on tho subject.

MEXICO.-Tho New York Time* no?
tices the politico" changes in Mexico
which have eventuated in making Juarez
dictator, wita s coatoeil of eight-and
twenty of the most' prominent ot its
Congress, to aid him in his new and
formidable task. It cannot entirely
blame the Juarez Administration for ita
action, because it thinks the necessity
for it was io some measure forced upon
its devisors by fate. It anya the per?
petual revolts in Sonora, ?Siunion, Chi?
huahua, Durango'and California; the'
lawnessness of 'bandits and guerilla
chiefs in Cobaliuiln, Zacatecas and
Guadalajara? tho frequent outbreaks in
Gu oner o -and Oaxaca; the plots in
Puebla, the constant unsettled condi?
tion of Yucatan, have kept the whole
republic in a broil, now North, now
South, now West, while the weakness
and corruption of the Government have
been aggravated by tho condnct of the
S tato authorities. It adds:
"That dark days have oome iu tho
Mexican Calendar is clear; Dor does it
neod a prophet to foretell that worso re?
main behind. Should Juarez uso his
new power to strengthen his position,
control the eleotions, pat down his rivals,
and clear the roads of robbers, the result
would probably be a centralized govern?
ment, moro powerful than has ever been
known ia Mexico, but with the rights of
States encroached upon unlawfully. The
probabilities are, however, that his op?
portunities will be frittered away; that
his assumption, of control will be the
signal for revolution through tho repub?
lic; nod ? revolution, too, which he will
not be able to direct."
Mrs. -Gui?es publishes in the New Or?
leans Times a card in relation to the suit
recently instituted against her in that
city. She says that several of those
whose names appear as plaintiffs in that
suit have assured her that they never
gavo any authority to any person to in?
stitute proceedings. She further says
that the possession of her property is
only a question of time, and adds: "For
years I Bavo borne every species of per?
secution until forbearance has now
ceased to be a virtue. But from all
thoso who meet me amicably, I will still
entertain propositions for compromise
in the spirit of liberality which I have at
all times heretofore evinced."
INSULTS TO THE DEAD.-Late on Fri?
day evening, when the remains of Col.
J. lt. Branch were being carried into his
late residence, on Broad street, a party
of disorderly negroes who were passing
cried out, "Fellows, here's one moro vote
less;" anil another said, "Yes, and there
will be many more before tho election
comes off," and the whole crowd broko
out in a disgusting horse-like laugh.
These words were not spoken in the or?
dinary tono of conversation, but yelled

Tho historians who have been vexing
their hearts over the persistent refusal
of tho War Department to grant them
access to the archives of the Confederate
Government might better have possessed
their souls in patience. It is reported
that tho President is about to throw
open these records, under proper restric?
tions, tb all applicants. The New York
Tribune says that if tho testimony of
those who have examined them may bo
accepted, it will then be found that tho
archives so eagerly sought are nearly
worthless when attained.

CHINESE LABOUBBS.- There ore re?
ports which come in a rather strange
way. and need confirmation, says the
St. Loafs Republican, that a number of
thousands of Chinamen, lately employed
on the Pacific Railroad, are on the way
from Omaha to the Sooth. Such an im?
migration, if true, would occasion not a
little surprise in the publie mind, having
an important bearing upon the material
and political interest of tba Boothera
States. It would be an evidence, too, of
the shrewdness of John Chinaman, and
show that he keeps himself thoroughly
versed on what is going on around him
rh ore especially where Iiis pocket is di?
rectly concerned. The idea bas found s
lodgment in his brain that the South
needs labor, and just that sort of labor
which the Chiuese can furnish cheaper,
if not better, than any other people on
earth. For a Chinaman hos infinitely
more industry and intelligence than a
negro, and can grow rich on what a ne?
gro will waste. He is the man, above
nil others, to work the cottou and sugar
plantations of the Qulf States, and to
reconstruct on a solid and permanent
basis the labor system of that section.
If an instalment of Chinese should suc?
ceed in gaining a foot-hold there, others
will follow, until tens of thousands of
Celestials will contribute to the woalth
and prosperity of tho country. It is the
first time in the history of tho world
that Asia and Africa are brought faco to
face in social and economical antagonism ;
and the result will be watched with the
deepest interest by those who appreciate
the gravity of the interests involved.

HEINITSH'S QUEEN'S DELIGHT.-What
is it? Ask your neighbor, who has been
relieved of a distressing disease. Ask
that rheumatic what cured him. Ask
the victims of dyspepsia. Ask that beau?
tiful daughter what removed those hide?
ous spots and ulcers, and made her face
as fair as Parian marble. Ask the once
iaundiced victim of liver complaint.
Ask that once poor emaciated form, the
subject of female irregularities, what
brought about such a marvelous change.
The answer is, 1 'It's HEINTTSH'S QUEEN'S
DELIGHT." Como out, then, all ye de?
sponding ones. Be cheerful, gay and
happy. If you are sick, fail not to try,
only try-no easier task-a bottle of
HEINITSH'S QUEEN DELIGHT. Jl
Nothing can compare with Taylor's
I patent Saw Gummer and Sharpener.
DELAYS ARE DANGEROUS.-That poor,
emaciated consumptive, who is now be?
yond all hope of recovery, might now be
halo and hearty bad he not neglected
that slight cough. Be advised. If you
have a cough or cold, get atonco a bottle
of DR. TUTT'S EXPECTORANT, and you
will soon be relieved. Do not put it
off. J3 6
