Sr AJT?STICS-STATE AND NATIONAL DEBTS.
According to the, New York Independent, ',
the following is ? statement of the popu?
lation and debt of the States of the Ame?
rican Union at the close of the year 1868:
"New England States, 3,400,000 popu?
lation; 846,386,882.00 debt. Middle
States', 10,135,000; $90,119.721.71. Pa?
cific Stetes. 780,000; 84,872,656.59.
Southern Stetes. 10.3GO.000; $138,803,
300.86. Western States, 12,350,000;
$48,452,386.82. Total, 37,025.000; $329,
584,446.03. The debt of the New Eng?
land Stetes, it will be seen, is $13.62 and
a fraction per capita; of the Middle
States, $8.90 and a fraction; of the West?
ern States, $4 and a fraction; of tho
Southern States, $13.39 aud a fraction ;
and of the Pacific States, $6.24 and a
fraction. The New England States owe
the largest amount iu proportion to ihe
population, and the Western States the
smallest. The large State debts are thoso
of New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia,
Massachusetts, North Carolina, Missouri,
Tennessee, Louisiana and Ohio-making
an aggregate of $240,567,499 as the debt
of these nine States. The average of the
tot.nl debt of all the Slates is $8.90 and a
fraction per capita. The national debt
on the 1st of Jone; 1869, was $2,505,412,
618, which is At the rate of $67.68 per
capita for the whole United States. Pay
the national debt in gold, at the average
price of 140, and it adds over $1,000,000,
000,000 to the debt, making it $3,507,
WHY DID LOUD AND LADT B?HON
SEPARATE?-?By the European mail from
London of September 23, wo learn that
Mr. C. Redding has written another let
tor on this question. He asserts that
there.is not a shadow of foundation for
Mrs. Stowe's charge, against Mrs. Leigh,
and declares his belief that Lady Byron
herself never circulated Mich a statement.
The letter concludes as follows:
"The cause of separation will perhaps
remain a mystery. I kucw it forty-four
?-ears ago, but the secret never passed my
ins. It was told to me by a friend of
Lady Byron's. It matters not to a curi?
ous and censorious world, whioh in, re?
ality cares not a jot about tho matter
except to gratify au idle curiosity, which
Mrs. Stowe's sensation fiction and affect?
ed sympathies about black or white have
tho effect of stimulating."
In this connection, we publish tho fol
"Mrs. Stowe desires tho friends of
justice and fair dealing to publish for her
the following card: That she has kept
silence heretofore in regard to criticisms
on her article on Byron for two reasons.
First, because she regarded the publio
mind as in too excited a stato to consider
the matter dispassionately; and second,
because she has expected the develop?
ment of additional proofs in England,
some of which, of great importance,
have already come to hand. Mrs. Stowe
is preparing a review of tho whole mat?
ter, with further facts and moro docu?
ments, including several lettors from
Lady Byron to ber attesting the vigor
and soundness of her mind nt the poriod
referred to, and also Mrs. Stowe's own
letters to Lady Byron at thc same timo,
which were returned to hor by the exe?
cutors soon after that Indy's death. She
will also give the publio a full account of
the circumstances and reasons which lcd
ber to feel it to be hor duty to make this
disclosure ns an obligation alike to jus?
tice, gratitude aud personal friendship."
A great storm prevailed in Muino on
tho evening of Monday last, and in the
town of Eastport alone property was de?
stroyed to the amount of $500,000, in
shipping, fish-houses, wharves, etc. Nu?
merous vessols were wrecked nlong the
coast, abd in 'two instances with loss of
life. An unknown bark was lost at Now
River, with seventeen persons on board,
and the schooner Rio at St. Andrews,
with all on board-how many not known.
Tho towns of Lubec, Pembroke and Per?
ry were heavily damaged. A freshot also
occurred in Swift River, by which many
farms wore overflowed, houses destroyed
and tho owners impoverished.

portion of his surplus M he can afford to
pnt away without anxiety in his place of
safe deposit, and keep until it cornea up
feo par, and pays ito semi-annual dividend
aa regularly as the bonds of the United
States." The Journal says: "Oar dpi
nion of 8onthern State ntocks has nor
changed. Wo regard thom,as good ulti?
mate security, no matter what the price
may be to-day. If they should sell to?
morrow at ten cents on the dollar, it
would not affect onr judgment of their
vaiuo one iota. But we say now, as we
said before, nervous, timid people, al?
though they may be able to live for
a while without the interest, should not
buy them even for investment, a?'every
important change in the market: price
would be interpreted by them as indica?
tivo of some new evidence regarding the
ultimate security of their capital. It is
because of these accompanying contin?
gencies I hat the price is so low as to
tempt buyers. But none should yield to
that inducement who is likely to be kept
awako at night when the prico goes
down.'' Thia is sound advice?. Such
persons should only invest ior well-esta?
blished securities, which generally com?
mand ? good price; t . ?
D1STUJJER8 OP FBUIT.-.Tho interests
of the service and of fruit distillers both
demanding it, the Secretary of the Trea?
sury and Commissioner of Internal Re?
venue, on consideration, have directed
the issuing of a supplement to regula?
tions-series 5, Na?'/7-exempting distil?
ler* of apples, ponchos and gropes, from
the provision of Section 23, Act of July
'20, 1868, which requires distillers to put
np their spirits in packages of not less
than twenty gallons. These distillers
from fruit will hereafter be permitted to
pnt up their spirits in packages of not
less than ton gallons. Inasmuch as no
tax-paid stamp has heretofore been used
for packages of less than twenty gallons,
a now stamp is being prepared for ten
gallon packages, with coupons attached,
so as to be adapted to a package of any
amount between ten and twenty gallons.
All packages of twenty or more gallons
will be stamped with tho tax-paid stamp
heretofore iu use.
WHAT IT COSTS.-It costs Europe
something like $200,000,000 to support
her Kings; we should like to know how
much additionally it requires to main?
tain ber armies. Both sums go to the
maintai nance of ono supreme luxury of 11
monarchy, to which ia occasionally su
peradded a despotism with extraordinary
cost. These considerations give very
great emphasis to the statement that
Napoleon will announce to his Legisla?
ture that the powers of Europe have
agreed to a general disarmament.
A New Orleans despatch to the Louis?
ville Courier-Journal has a story of a
connter-plot in Cuba, or a plot within a
plot, whoso purport is that certain
wealthy Cubans in tbe island, opposed
to insurrection, are about to unite with
the resident Spaniards in a "struggle for
independence." The curious part of the
Story is that "General Robert E. Lee was
resolved upon for President of the Re?
public of Cuba, and the position offered
him for ten years." We are further as?
sured that "the documents offering Gen?
eral Lee the position of President have
been forwarded to him."
The cotton crop of India in 18G0 wns
worth about $25,000,000. This yenr's
crop is estimated at 8100,000,000. Tho
natives begin to understand that it is
better to produce cotton nt lOd. per
pound than the staple millet of the
country from which they barely eke ont
a support. It is well known that the
Indian cotton is greatly inferior in qual?
ity to that produced in this country; but
it bas improved bycare in the cultivation
Asad accident has just occurred nt
the Victoria Theatre, Berlin. Two of
tho ballet girls were dressing in the room,
when one of them lighted an extra gas
burner, and threw the burning paper on
the ground. Their dresses instantly
caught fire, and, although assistance was
at once rendered, they were so badly
burned that one of them died the same
night, and the other the following morn?
