Qon. Fitzhugh I.eo, iu his address
at Atlanta ou Saturday last, at tho

: (Ion. Robert L\ Loo, had the follow
1 lug to say,which iu worthy of study:
"iho urea of our country ia ao

tion ia boooniiug uiota and more
mixed, the interests of auctious nru
so diverse, that great rr.itloom quea
tions, if decided to the satisfaction
of ono or two parts of a common
country, give dissatisfaction to the
remaining parta. improved ma
chiuery is doing nway with human

tho ranks of tbo army of the discon?
tented aro being orammed with re?
cruits. Tho girdle which hinds tho
States of tho American Union Iias
already displayed weak spots sinoo
tho war between them."
There may bo danger along the
lino winch Can, Lee indicated, as
tho Potersbarg Iudex Appeal sug
gest, but Tan Viroinian ia firmly of
the .pitr.cn that thore ia enough
patriotism loft in the country to
preserve tho continuity of the prea
;.eut form of government.
Thero will always be disturbing
elements, hut, then, there are more
good people than bad, aud wbon
urousod tho safety of the country
will by them be prosnrved. It is
true, however, that a diveraity of
iuteres's confronts na, and that an
uquitahle adjustment satisfactory to
I tho various sections is a thiug most
difficult, hut tho brain and patriot
iem of tho great American people
can bo robed upon to bring tho mat?
ter right iu time.
Every student of mirront history
s awaro that great dissatisfaction
exists smong the people; that tho
ranks of tho unemployed are being
augmented day by day with new
recruits: that the labor problem is
not ono of ea?y solution, but it is
not be.ievtd thet either of theso

That is what thousands
of people, speaking out of
their own experience, say to
