Wo have from time to time warned
whom it might concern that any invest?
ment in carpet-bag bonde Was a very
hasardons ventare; but, so far, it ap?
pears that there has always been some
one ready to advance on every issae put
forth in the name of the several South?
ern States by those superstitious persons
therein assuming to bo and acting as
Governors, Legislatures, and so on.
Muoh of this acceptance by moneyed
mon of the certificates bf indebtedness
pnt forth by .the pretended State antbo
thorities of the South has been due to
the conviction that it. was useless for the
citizens of theso States to protest against
the reconstructed regime; that it ws
fastened down upon them, and no al. --
nativo was left them bat submission to its
operations. So far as the present goes,
this is undouutedly a correct hypothesis;
to all exist ing appeal anco the new regime
is potent in its sway over the people
upon them, by Federal bayonets, it has
been imposed; but, while suoh is the
present aspect of affairs, the truth is that
this violent and fraudulent soborno of re?
construction hos no real strength beyond
that hold which the radical party has on
Eower. As every election shows, this
bid is growing weaker and weaker; and
BO evident is this tendency that there are
few observant men in tho republic who do
noot feel that, with ordinary prndence
and energy, the Democratic party is
certainly destined to triumph in 1872.
With suoh a triumph, there will be but
one rule for the conduct of the Southern
question, and that the fallest possible
exemplification of the great principle of
The Withdrawal of the Federal army
of oppression now qnartered in the
South, and the remission of the scalawag
and carpet-bag fraternities to suoh mea?
sure of strength as they may possess
within themselves, will so far commit
the domestic regulation of the South to
tho citizens of the South, that those rot?
ten hulls now styled State Governments,
will at once speedily, utterly, and peace?
ably disappear. On their disappearance,
and with the erection in their stead of
genuine governments, one of tho first
questions will bo as to what is to be done
in reference to the bonded indebtedness.
Some little intimation of the probablo
purpose- of the South in this contingen?
cy, reaches us to tho effect that a species
of scaling procoss will bo adopted; that
is, that so much of this indebtedness as
shall appear to havo been .00ntraded for
bona fide purposes, will be legalized aud
added to the genuine debt of tho State
at par; so much as shall be proven to
have gone to corrupt uses will bo abso?
lutely disavowed. Tho application of
these principles-principles at once just,
equitable, and in the highest sense legal,
will make sad work with the hugo bond?
ed indebtedness now piling up by those
knaves and flickers who assume to be the
State authorities of the South. Against
suoh a scaling, it will be useless for the
holders of carpet-bag bonds to protest.

"THK SoUTHEIlN CoilMKBCIAt, CONVEN?
TION."-This teat the titlo of the conven?
tion that is to have its next meeting ut
Louisville, Ky., on the 12th of October.
Will it be a Southern convention wbeu it
assembles? For two reasons, no. First,
the foreign Governors of the Southern
States have for the most part appointed
aa delegates carpet-baggers aud scala?
wags, neither of whom bavo anything
Southern about them; and next, dele?
gates have boen invited from many, if
not all, of tbo Northern States. Now,
we are the last to turn our faces against
any enterprise that looks to "allaying
sectional prejudices," and "harmonizing
politicnl antagonism," and "all that sort
of tbiug, you know, yon know." But
we recur to the question, is this a South?
ern commercial convention? And if not,
are the labor- question of the Soutb, the
Southern Pacific Railroad, or any ques?
tion of purely Southern concernment,
proper questions to bo submitted to a
general national commercial convention,
beautifully variegated and Knotted with
carpet-bag office thieves, and their mean?
er scalawag coadjutors?
We do not nt all object to national
conventions for national purposes; but
the point we make is, if this is to bo n
general, universal, oonminicnl national
convention, why continue to call it a
Southern commercial convention ? If
Sumner, and Butler, and Phillips, and
"eich like," got in there, and can oontrol
the Northern majority, it is qnito certain
that tho South will take uotbing from its
During a recent visit to New York
President Grant expressed a desire to
purchase some cigars, and visited quite
a number of establishments for tho pur?
pose of testing their brands, ftc. The
result was, that; uuktiown to each other,
each dealer visited resolved to mako the
President a present, and he received not
less thou 70,000 prime Havanas. This
will keep him in cigars for some time,' as
he has never been known to extend his
cigar case to a friend or-visitor. .

THE POPULATION OP TIIE G LOU E.
There ar? on .the globo 1,288,000,000 of
SOUIB. 360,000,000 ?re of the Cauca?
sian rooe; 652,000,000 ate of the Mongol
raoe; 190,000,000 are of tho Ethiopian
race; 176,000,000 aro of the Malay race;
1,000,000 are of the Indo-American race.
There are 3,642 languages spoken, and
1,000 different religions. The yearly
mortality of the globe is 33,333,333 per?
sons. Tbis is at tho rate of 91,554 per
day, 3,730 per hour, 62 per minute. So
each pulsation of the heart marks the
decease of some human creature. The
average of human lifo is 33 years. One
fourth of the population dies at or be?
fore tbo age of 7 years. One-half nt or
before 17 years. Among 10,000 persons |
one arrives at the age of 100 years, one
in 500 attains tbe age of 90, and one in
100 lives to tho age of 60. Married men
live longer than single ones. In 100 per?
sons 95 marry, and more marriages occur
in Juno and December than in any other
months of tho year. ' One-eighth of tho
whole population is military. Profes?
sions exercise a great influence on longe-1
vity. In 1,000 individuals who arrive at
tho age of 70 years, 42 are priests, ora?
tors or pnblio speakers, 40 are agricultu?
rists, 33 are 'workmen, 32 are soldiers or
military employees, 29 advocates or en?
gineers, 27 professors, and 24 doctors.
Those who elev?te their lives to the pro?
longation of that of others die the soon?
est. There are 336,000,000 Christians;
5,000,000 Israelites; 60,000.000 Asiatic
religionists; 190,000,000 Mohammedans;
300,000,000 Pagans. In the Christian
churches 170,000,000 profoss tho Roman
Catholio faith, 75,000,000 the Greek, and
80,000,000 the Protestant.
Tho latest and. most fantastic sugges?
tion in tho way of telegraphy is that of
a French enthusiast, who is now being
heartily laughed at in Europe for his
pains. His proposal is, not to fly to the
moon, but to communicate with the
planets. He wishes to mount a gigantic
mirror, capable of being rendily moved,
and to give flashing signals to Jupiter or
Venns. His theory is, that if these are
repeated regularly at given intervals, aud
in an equal number of times, the inha?
bitants of tho planets will como to dis?
cern them, to understand that they mean
something, and to return them. Should
they do this, a codo of signals could ma?
nifestly, without much difficulty, bode-,
vised. Tho proposer of this curious
scheme points out that even now bright
spots ure occasionally seen ou some of the !
planets, aud suggests that they may pos?
sibly be similar signals from tho inhabi?
tants of th oso orbs to each other and to
us. Tho idea is said to have been dis?
cussed before now, and to havo been aban?
doned; but, however impracticable or
absurd, it has beeu thought worthy of
serious attention by the French Academy
A GLOOMY VIEW OF LABOB IN CALIFOR?
NIA.-A San Francisco letter 6tates that)
there aro hundreds of men out of em?
ployment in California, and they cannot |
get work. Those who do not get work
have to carry their beds from placo to!
place. When the harvest is dono, there
is nothing for the laborer to do until tho
rain falls, about the 1st of November.
The San Francisco papers publish only
the good side of affairs iu California, and
6ay nothing about the bad side. Farm
bands cannot average moro than six
months' work in a year. California is a|
better country for capital than for labor.
A farm laborer in California must have]
hit? own bed iu every instance, or sleep
in tbe hay stack; and if he asks the own?
er of a farm wbere bo applies for work,
bo is told to buy his own blanket, Aman
bas to do his own washing also, or pay
from 61.50 to $3 a dozen for washing,
and then <ro from ono mile to two to get |
it done, except in the city.

W. H. R?ese, a leading druggist in Monti?
cello, 111., in a letter of June 6,1868, writes to
this effect: "Having eold Hostettor'e Bitters
for the past four years, I cannot but speak of
the article as being the bent tonic and appe?
tizer extant. During the aguo season of lbiXMi,
I could not koep a sufficient ?tock on hand to

waa a's staple as quinine. I learn that physi?

April 18,1868, that ho haa used tbe Bitters
constantly in his own family for tho previous
two years, ne first tried tho preparation when
Buffering from exhaustion produced by a se
voro attack of fever. Before tho first bottle
waa finished ho experienced a remarkable
chango for the hotter. Ho had tried brandy
at tho outset, but found that did him moro
harm than good. In one month from the time
ho commouced using the Bitters his health,
strength and appetite were restored. Ho had
recommended tho article to others in like cir

had found it a perfect specifio for chilla and

attacks of dyspepsia that over afflicted any

"various other remedies had proved power?
less." Restored to perfect health, he thanks
"that excellent preparation for tho result."
