' The New York Times notes t ho fact
that ?vo of every eix railroads have re
ported earnings for the fonrth week iu
ITabruftry, showing handsome increases
over the respective incomes for the
Corresponding period of last year.
Sir. Oeorge J. Gould, irritated by
the reports about his sister's marriage,
denies that there was nny niarriago
settlement of $2,000,000 or of auy
Other sum, and says that tho question
of money did not enter into tho mat?
ter at all.
If the Cuban revolutionists hold out
fk little longer, it may bo that they will
f.ohievo a fighting chance. It is evi
dent that tho reports from Spauish
(sources concerning tho uprising aro
' colored in a manner to belittle tho
difficulty; else dctaohmcuts from a
dozen garrisons in Spain and 2,000,000
Cartridges would not be ordered to

Hon. John S. Tucker, ex-Mayor of
Norfolk,in Tut. Virginian to day,gives
a very graphic and vivid'description of
the great battle iu Hampton Roads bo
- tweentbe Virginia or Merrimao and tho
Federal fleet ou March 8th,1802,and tho
celebrated duel between the Merrimac
and Monitor on the following day.

It will bo very remarkable if the
Councils of Norfolk go into the busi?
ness of trndiug "sight unseen," aud es?
pecially on so very important a matter
i as that of our water supply. The propo
? eition to the city is a most singular
one. Why should the city bo asked to
? appropriate monuy without a guarauteo
for proper aud laithful dischargo of
I work? The company has failed in the
boring work, although it outcre 1 upon
i-ih<^?e>e, full of faith as to results,
^ Wells are bored, The Vhioinian is in?
formed, through tho rocks, in tho oil
region, at a eost of not exceeding S2.50
to $3.00 a foot, and if this is eo, why
should the oity be asked to go into au
expenditaro so much beyoud this rateV
There should be no "heads I wiu, and
tails you lose" in this matter.
I a It.11 Kit t'OI.OMi:?.
' Under this caption the Montgomery,
Ala., Advertiser advances tho opinion
that there is no doubt that tho most
feasible way to settle our agricultural
lands with desirable white families is
by colonization, and it is right. There
are thousands of intelligent families in
the North and West, rcmnrks our con?
temporary, who would come to tho
South did they know the great advan?
tages offered to the farmer. The va
iv fiety of agricultural products is much
greater thau iu tho North and West,
and cotton, rice and sugar are money
crops that can only bo grown in tho
South. It thinks that au agent sent to
Kansas or Nebraska with authority to
offer tracks of 5,000 acres to colouies of
100 families, would have no trouble in
disposing of large acres of land, if sold
on email payments, long time and low
The people that would be brought
here by such a plan are not ordinary
immigrants, but intelligent farmers aud
? large percentage of them Americans.
They wonld be desirable additions to
the South, socially, aud, as tho Adver?
tiser says, ob wealth-producers would
keep pace with our industrial en?
terprise. This is a live question and
one which Virginia, as well as her bis
tor States of the South, will do well to
consider. There is laud hero in plenty
and such people would be accorded u
A cheat uipiiti: sin i hi; fast.
The London Spectator, in speaking
of the possibilities resulting from the
war in "the Orient," says that the rise
of Japan to the first position among
Asiatic powers is not only tho most
amazing incident of tho half century,
, but it is tho oue which most directly
affects tho future of Great Britain. It
is of the opinion, that if the war should
end in one probable way, uamely,
a subordinate alliance of China with
Japau.tho world will see iu Asia a .Mon?
golian empire of 400,000,000 people
guided by men who oan create llcuts as
good as any in Europe, who can organ?
ise great armies under Prussian disci?
pline aud who . can pursno fixed pur
' yen* of ambition with patient conceal
merit of tliem for twenty years?an
empire winch can atlaok Russia aud
France and (Jroat Britain by laud, its
roads into Turkestan, Tonquiu, British
Burtnab and Bengal being open, all
known sud all iudofonaihlo without
frightful expense aud exhausting addi
i tiou8 to perinauout garrisons.
"If again," pays the Spootator, "the
war ends in another way, by payment
of a great indemnity and a cession of
Oorea anil Formosa, wo shall havo a
1 great naval power on tho eastern edge
', of Asia elated with viotory, intent on
adveutute and conquest aud willing, or
peruaps even anxious, t ? test its
Btrength in naval engagements with
i some Binglo iitst class European t>ow
or." And, liistly, it says: "If the war
euds in a drawn game, wo shall havo a
most eaimhle, though disappointed
Asiatio people, able to live ou low
wages, devoting itself to manufactures
aud shipbuilding in a way which may
in a few yearsjdivert from Great Brit?
ain much of its carrying trade, now
tho largest souroe of proUt, all of the
textile industry of Britain and much of
its trnde in iron, machinery mid coal,"
If tho Spectator's, theory bo true
and its mode of reasoning so nppuurs,
well may tho English pooplo watch tho
oveutB iu tho East with interest, as
undoubtedly under certain contingen?
cies tho results may prove more de?
structive to their interest than a Euro?
PACKI.Ml UO'riO.N tost MtlPPINU
A New Orleans exchange is urging at
somo length tho adoption of tho Bor
r.?netto plan of packing cotton for ship
ment. which, it Buys, promises to rovo
lutioni/o tho industry aud be of vast
beuelit to tho producer of "the ileocy
staple." Hy the uso of machinery iu
the giuhouse, under this plan, Iho cot?
ton is wound as it is received
from tho condenser of the gin ou a
spiudlo iu cylindrical form, with a
pressure which secures a density one
third greater thau is possible by ths
most improved appliances now iu use.
At tho mills, it says, tho cotton is
unwound from the cylinder as easily as
it is put ou. It is claimed that it will
do away with banging und tics, sub?
stituting a halo covering tunde from
low grade cotton. It aleo says that tho
Bret shipment of cottou packed under
the new process, from Texas to Huston,
was at the rate of 112 bales to the car,
while the old plan of packing only al?
lowed ?0 bales.
Our Now Orleans contemporary
stales that the old process of packing
is ou tho uvo of being abandoned, and
that tho new plan placos every station,
tuwu arid plantation ou an equality as
to shipment. Tho I'lltshurg I'ost
notes the change ami says that it is a
matter of interest to tho iron industry,
for the reason that it does away with
the uso of tics, it also states that tho
New Kugltuid cotton spinners regard
the new plau of packing superior to
the old, because it delivers the cotton
in much bettor condition to the mills
thau has been tho case all along, Tho
Post, basing its opiuion upon what it
has seen, is clearly of the opinion Hint
tho new plan will save tho South $1),
000,000 on a 10,000,0JO crop.

the hope thut the custom is about to be
