Tho de facto tiovoruor of Alabama.
Col. Outcs, lias made public through
the presB certain statements regarding
the financial condition of Alabama
which we, in justice to a common
reuse of honesty, feel it a duty id re
lute. The reference uue would Lave
from his interviews, in which he status
that the credit of Alabama is so good,
Would bo that the State id iu a peaceful
aud prosperous couditiou, this not
being the caso.
The faota uro that under the preced?
ing administration tue Government of
Alabama became iu such straits that
the then de facto Governor, Tliomas
G. Jouos, recommended that the taxes
lie raised to meet tbe existing deficien?
cy. Ho also, without authority of law,
burrowed money to prevent a crisis.
Hi nee Col, Gates ' was seated de facto
Governor by soldiers with torty rounds
of cartridges bud.ltd around their
waists, bis counted iu administration
Las found it ueoessary to not only raise
the tax rate, but also to provide a new
mid unjust revenue law to attempt to
nivo the State from another impending
If such conditions tnako the good
credit of a Slate, that may exist for
Alabama, but business ui(u wiii deem
It otherwise, especially when a great
majority of the people of Alabama do
not now recognize Ool. Gates n-> the
legally elected Governor ol tho .State,
Alabama's de fucto tiovoruor is en?
gaged iu playing n new and unique
role. Usually people come to New
York city to get buncoed; now Col,
Oates is hero endeavoring to bunco the
liuauciers ot Wall street into purchas?
ing Alabama bonds, when there la each
year a growing deficit in the state
treasury and when it is with effort that
tho people are restrained from open
rebellion against the preseut fraudulent
de facto administration.
County ofttoials, who handle the
Htato revenue, have been retained in
office and piotected from proseautiou
idler it i? a matter of c( mmou report
that they are defaulters of public
funds, 'Ihne it is evident that those
whoso way into office is stolen by pro*ti
tilting tbe ballot iiox, cannot be trusted
with the custody of the people's moucy,
Hence the great demand for ballot re?
form iu the South.

Havana, March 18.?The commander
of tho Spanish cruiser Oonde de Vena
dde reports that on March 8th, while
cruising ofTtho eastern coast of the is?
land, ho sighted it steomor heading for
linyti Point. Tiio stoainor'a course was
to the northeast. The cruiser hoisted a
Hag and the steamer replied by raising
au Lmglish Hag. The cruiser signalled
tiio steamer to slop, tint without effect.
As the steamer proceeded at fall
spued the cruiser tirst tired two blank
shots und then two solid shots. The
nomraauder says he did not desire to hit
the steamer but merely to cause her to
heave to. Ho ussurts that tho steamer
was but ouo und a half n.iies oft' thu
Cuban count when thu firing occurred.
'the authorities here have ordered
that a full inquiry be made iuto tho
commander's acts, dudging from Capt.
Cro8Biuan'o story nobody can doubt
thnt the steamer in question was the
Albanen which was Iirod on by a Span?
ish cruiser on .Mai eh 8th. Nothing
has been heard here to confirm the
rumor that the gunboat Alsodo baa
sunk an American schooner. The
rumor is regarded us utterly unfound?
ed, in fact.
